The Third Secret of Fatima

Theory: The Catholic Church has not released the Third Secret of Fatima because it contains a disastrous prophecy of the apocalypse or dissension within the Catholic Church.
Facts: The Three Secrets of Fatima are said to be a series of visions and prophecies allegedly given by the Virgin Mary to three young Portuguese girls starting in May of 1917. According to the official interpretation, the secrets involve Hell, World Wars I and II, and the shooting of Pope John Paul II. Two of the secrets were revealed in 1941 in a document written by Lucia, one of the three girls who saw the Virgin Mary in 1917 (the other two succumbed to influenza), but she hesitated to convey the Third Secret because she was unsure whether God had yet authorized her to act. In 1944 a bishop ordered her to write down the Third Secret; she did so, sealed the enveloped and said that it could not be opened until her death or in 1960, whichever came first because she claimed the message would then appear clearer. She has also stated that she wrote the secret on a single sheet of paper. The text of the Third Secret was released by the Vatican in 2000 and claimed to predict the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II in 1981.
Unanswered Questions: It’s not known why the Vatican waited for 40 years to release the Third Secret. After 1960 passed without the release of the Third Secret speculations arose that it could contain visions of worldwide nuclear annihilation and deep rifts within the Catholic Church among other things. Also, the official statement revealing the secret mentions only a man in white robes who would be assaulted with bullets in a crumbling city; there is no specific mention of a Pope, and in fact, the girls believed in 1917 that the man was the Holy Father. Some who have seen the original handwritten document also claim that the document the Vatican released was only part of the Secret. They claim there are actually two parts to the Third Secret; a four-page vision that was released, and another single page that were the direct words of the Virgin Mary that is still locked away in the vaults of the Vatican. Also, in 1960 a press release from the Vatican claimed the secret would probably never be released as it contained “words which Our Lady confided as a secret”; however the secret released in 2000 contains no direct words from the Virgin Mary, only a vision seen by the girls. Theorists point to this as evidence that the Vatican has yet to release a portion of the Third Secret that contains the direct words of the Virgin Mary. Some theologians believe that the secret concerns an apostasy; Cardinal Ciappi, personal theologian to Pope John Paul II, is quoted by sources as saying, “In the Third Secret it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top.”
Ideas: Conspiracy theorists believe that the Third Secret contained on the single sheet of paper refers to the apocalypse, apostasy, or satanic infiltration of the Catholic Church. Numerous witnesses claim they have seen the original letter or have seen the envelope it is contained in and claim it is a single sheet. Lucia, the girl who wrote the Third Secret in 1944 also claims it is written on a single sheet of paper and is reported to have explicitly stated that the Third Secret contains apocalyptic content.
Conclusion: We believe the conspiracy surrounding the Third Secret of Fatima to be a valid one, primarily because of the untruths and morally questionable actions by the Catholic Church throughout history, from the selling of absolutions to the handling of molestation charges in recent years; you could say we’ve lost the faith. Too many eye witnesses have come forward stating the text of the Third Secret is contained on one single page as Lucia has also stated. Vatican officials through the years have also released conflicting stories surrounding the Third Secret. That being said, even if the true Third Secret were released, we’re still skeptical of anything claiming to prophesize the future, especially when it may rely on the interpretation of a vision by three young girls.

A Bill seeks to de-militarize federal agencies

While on the surface, this looks like a good idea, my only question is if it is to little to late.

From Susanne Posel's site....

House Representative Chris Stewart proposed the Regulatory Agency De-militarization Act (RAD) in order to eliminate federal regulators who are “armed to the teeth and breaking into homes and businesses when there was no reason to think there would be resistance.”

On Stewart’s website, a press release states: “In recent years, numerous federal regulatory agencies – including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Food and Drug Agency (FDA) and the Department of Education (DoE) – have created their own special law enforcement teams to conduct their own arrests and raids. This is in part a product of the 2002 Homeland Security Act , which gave most Offices of Inspector General (OIG) arrest and firearm authority.”

RAD repeals:

  • The OIG’s authority to “arrest and firearm authority”
  • Demands the OIG publish “a complete report detailing all federal agencies, including OIG, with specialized units that receive special tactical or military-style training and that respond to high-risk situations that fall outside the capabilities of regular law enforcement officers”
  • Stops federal agencies “from purchasing machine guns, grenades, and other weaponry regulated under the National Firearms Act ”

Stewart said: “I understand that federal agents must be capable of protecting themselves. But what we have observed goes far beyond providing necessary protection. When there are genuinely dangerous situations involving federal law, that’s the job of the Department of Justice, not regulatory agencies like the FDA or the Department of Education. Not only is it overkill, but having these highly-armed units within dozens of agencies is duplicative, costly, heavy handed, dangerous and destroys any sense of trust between citizens and the federal government.”

Recently it has been reported that many federal agencies have been amassing hollow point bullets and other armory in unprecedented amounts. - New Bill Calls For ‘De-militarization’ of DHS, FBI & Others - Top US World News | Susanne Posel Daily Headlines and Research

Animal Rights Activist Jailed at Secretive Prison Gives First Account of Life Inside a "CMU"

In a Democracy Now! exclusive interview, we speak with Andrew Stepanian, an animal rights activist who was jailed at a secretive prison known as a Communication Management Unit, or CMU.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Eric Holder and the Federal Bureau of Prisons challenging the legality of two secretive prison units in Indiana and Illinois.

The prisons, known as Communication Management Units, are designed to severely restrict prisoner communication with family members, the media and the outside world.

Most of the prisoners held in the CMUs have been Muslim men, but the units have also held several non-Muslim political activists, including environmental and animal rights activists.

In 2006, Andrew Stepanian was sentenced to three years in prison for violating a controversial law known as the Animal Enterprise Protection Act.  - Animal Rights Activist Jailed at Secretive Prison Gives First Account of Life Inside a "CMU"

Thousands of secret keys found in Android apps according to researchers

Some of the secret keys, including Facebook and LinkedIn, were discovered by PlayDrone, a tool developed by Columbia Engineering researchers that uses hacking techniques to circumvent Google security to successfully download Google Play apps and recover their sources.

In a paper presented—and awarded the prestigious Ken Sevcik Outstanding Student Paper Award—at the ACM SIGMETRICS conference on June 18, Jason Nieh, professor of computer science at Columbia Engineering, and PhD candidate Nicolas Viennot reported that they have discovered a crucial security problem in Google Play, the official Android app store where millions of users of Android, the most popular mobile platform, get their apps.

"Google Play has more than one million apps and over 50 billion app downloads, but no one reviews what gets put into Google Play—anyone can get a $25 account and upload whatever they want. Very little is known about what's there at an aggregate level," says Nieh, who is also a member of the University's Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering's Cybersecurity Center. "Given the huge popularity of Google Play and the potential risks to millions of users, we thought it was important to take a close look at Google Play content."

Nieh and Viennot's paper is the first to make a large-scale measurement of the huge Google Play marketplace.

To do this, they developed PlayDrone, a tool that uses various hacking techniques to circumvent Google security to successfully download Google Play apps and recover their sources.
PlayDrone scales by simply adding more servers and is fast enough to crawl Google Play on a daily basis, downloading more than 1.1 million Android apps and decompiling over 880,000 free applications.

Nieh and Viennot discovered all kinds of new information about the content in Google Play, including a critical security problem: developers often store their secret keys in their apps software, similar to usernames/passwords info, and these can be then used by anyone to maliciously steal user data or resources from service providers such as Amazon and Facebook.

These vulnerabilities can affect users even if they are not actively running the Android apps.
Nieh notes that even "Top Developers," designated by the Google Play team as the best developers on Google Play, included these vulnerabilities in their apps. "We've been working closely with Google, Amazon, Facebook, and other service providers to identify and notify customers at risk, and make the Google Play store a safer place," says Viennot. "Google is now using our techniques to proactively scan apps for these problems to prevent this from happening again in the future."

In fact, Nieh adds, developers are already receiving notifications from Google to fix their apps and remove the secret keys.

Nieh and Viennot expect PlayDrone to lay a foundation for new kinds of analysis of Android apps. "Big data is increasingly important and Android apps are just one form of interesting data," Nieh observes. "Our work makes it possible to analyze Android apps at large scale in new ways, and we expect that PlayDrone will be a useful tool to better understand Android apps and improve the quality of application content in Google Play."

Other findings of the research include: showing that roughly a quarter of all Google Play free apps are clones: these apps are duplicative of other apps already in Google Play identifying a performance problem resulting in very slow app purchases in Google Play: this has since been fixed a list of the top 10 most highly rated apps and the top 10 worst rated apps in Google Play that included surprises such as an app that, while the worst rated, still had more than a million downloads: it purports to be a scale that measures the weight of an object placed on the touchscreen of an Android device, but instead displays a random number for the weight

Good news for the hundreds of thousands of developers who upload content to Google Play and even more so for the millions of users who download the content! -Researchers find thousands of secret keys in Android apps

New study reveals FBI set up terrorism-related prosecutions

Nearly 95 per cent of terrorist arrests have been the result of FBI foiling its own entrapment plots as a part of the so-called post-9/11 War on Terror, a new study revealed.

The 175-page study by Muslim advocacy group SALAM analyzes 399 individuals in cases included on the list of the US Department of Justice from 2001 to 2010. “According to this study’s classification, the number of preemptive prosecution cases is 289 out of 399, or 72.4 percent.

Combining preemptive prosecution cases and elements of preemptive prosecution cases, the total number of such cases on the DOJ list is 376, or 94.2 percent,” the report concluded.

The authors define ‘preemptive prosecution’ as “a law enforcement strategy adopted after 9/11, to target and prosecute individuals or organizations whose beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations raise security concerns for the government.”

Over 16 percent of cases included false statement or perjury charges, and around six percent of cases involved immigration-related charges.

One of the FBI’s strategies involved “using agents provocateur to actively entrap targets in criminal plots manufactured and controlled by the government.” “The government uses agents provocateur to target individuals who express dissident ideologies and then provides those provocateurs 25 with fake missiles, bombs, guns, money, encouragement, friendship, and the technical and strategic planning necessary to see if the targeted individual can be manipulated into planning violent or criminal action,” the report concluded.

A total seven recommendations call on the US government to accurately identify people who offer material support for terrorism, strengthening the “entrapment” defense in the courts; abolish “terror-enhanced sentencing” that triples or quadruples jail time in cases linked to terrorist acts; disallow secret court proceedings, and immediately notifying defendants if any evidence in their case is derived from secret surveillance. ‘Inventing terrorists’: New study reveals FBI set up terrorism-related prosecutions — RT USA

Pennsylvania ordered its health workers to never discuss fracking

In the heavily fracked Keystone State, the economic interests of frackers trump the health concerns of residents. “We were absolutely not allowed to talk to [people who called with concerns related to fracking],” said Tammi Stuck, who worked as a community health nurse in Fayette County for nearly 36 years. … “There was a list of buzzwords we had gotten,” Stuck said. “There were some obvious ones like fracking, gas, soil contamination.

fracking? (Photo credit: beelaineo)
Stuck said she has spoken to employees working in other state health centers who received the same list of buzzwords and the same instructions on how to deal with drilling-related calls. “People were saying: Where’s the Department of Health on all this?” Stuck said. “The bottom line was we weren’t allowed to say anything.”

The office of Gov. Tom Corbett declined to comment on the former employees’ claims, and a state health spokesperson basically called them liars. This is one of the most troubling — but unfortunately, not surprising — examples of how our leaders at the state and federal levels have been failing to put the health of Americans over profits for powerful oil and gas interests. And if it was happening here unreported for so long, how are we to know it’s not happening in other states?

EPA dropped an investigation into drinking water contamination in Dimock, PA — as well as in Texas and Wyoming – without sufficient explanation, despite evidence of lingering fracking-related contamination and health concerns.

Avoiding investigation of health complaints provides enough cover for frackers to continue claiming there’s “no proof” of health impacts. This is backwards.

[...] [The bottom line,] Pennsylvania has collected more than $600 million in drilling fees during the past three years — but absolutely none of those funds have made their way to the health department to help it monitor or investigate fracking’s impacts on residents. - Pennsylvania ordered its health workers to never discuss fracking | Grist

The reason why media won't dig into White House Scandals

The Obama administration has been awash with scandals – some that have been said to surpass Watergate – and yet America’s mainstream press has apparently forgotten its role as watchdog, claims Fox Business News’ Lou Dobbs, and his award-winning journalist guest has a theory as to why.

Emmy-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson appeared on the June 19 “Lou Dobbs Tonight” program and explained the media isn’t digging into allegations the White House used the power of the IRS to target tea-party groups because “propaganda interests” have intimidated reporters so severely, they’re afraid if they cover the administration’s scandals, they’ll be seen as a “right-wing nut.” - Ex-CBS News star reveals why media still cover for Obama

Governments cashing in on "abandoned" assests.

Have you checked your bank account lately? Used that old savings account in the last year? You might want to check to see if your assets are still there.

All over the world, governments are shortening the time periods required before they can seize "dormant bank accounts" and "unclaimed property" For example, as you will read about below, just last year the government of Australia seized a whopping 360 million dollars from dormant bank accounts. In some states, no effort will be made to contact you when your property is confiscated. And in most states, the seized property permanently become the property of the state government after a certain waiting period has elapsed.

In Australia for example, the time period required before the federal government could seize a dormant bank account was reduced from seven to three years, and this resulted in an unprecedented windfall for the Australian government over the past 12 months...

    The federal government has seized a record $360 million from household bank accounts that have been dormant for just three years, prompting outrage in some quarters amid complaints that pensioners and retirees have lost deposits.

    Figures from the Australian Security and Investments Commission (ASIC) show almost $360 million was collected from 80,000 inactive accounts in the year to May under new rules introduced by Labor. The new rules lowered the threshold at which the government is allowed to snatch funds from accounts that remain idle from seven years to three years.

For instance, the waiting period in the state of California used to be fifteen years.

    The State acquires unclaimed property through California's Unclaimed Property Law, which requires "holders" such as corporations, business associations, financial institutions, and insurance companies to annually report and deliver property to the Controller's Office after there has been no customer contact for three years.

And it is not just bank accounts and safe deposit boxes that are covered by California law.

    Mineral interests and royalty payments, trust funds, and escrow accounts.

And when a state government grabs your property, the consequences can be absolutely devastating.

    "They are zealously uncovering accounts that are not unclaimed," Ruff said.

And some states are even more aggressive than the state of California in going after bank accounts.

In a recent article, Simon Black noted that the state of Georgia can go after "dormant bank accounts" after just one year of inactivity...

    In fact, each of the 50 states has its own regulations pertaining to the seizure of dormant accounts.

As economic conditions get even worse, the temptation for governments all over the planet to grab private bank accounts is going to become even greater.

And our bank accounts may be one of the first things that they decide to confiscate.

So please don't keep all of your eggs in one basket, and check on all of your accounts in regular intervals.  -
