Sit on the seat of a plane and watch over Ray's shoulder as he speaks with a young lady about her eternal salvation, 25,000 above the ground.
Watch basic principles of street witnessing get put into practice as Kirk witnesses to hardened gang members at Santa Monica, Southern California.
You will be delighted to see this man's reaction to being confronted by Kirk about his sinful state before God.
This is about as real as it gets. Know anybody like this? Bet you know PLENTY of people like this. This is an example of a prevalent human condition, sometimes known as the "I Did It My Way Syndrome". The Bible calls it making a god in your own image.
See how the Moral Law (Ten Commandments) humbles a young man as Ray shares with him at Seal Beach in Southern California.

Visit http://www.freeme.tv Congress never declared war with Iraq. Augustine of Hippo and Thomas Aquinas' writings came to influence the Christian concept of a Just War.
Ron Paul, (R) from Texas, is running for president. These words are from a speech he gave before the House of Representatives. The song heard is "Fill My Way Everyday with Love" from Lifeline, Iris Dement. Please consider these words...If this rings true for you, it is urgent that you vote for Ron Paul in the Republican primary. He really upsets the fake conservative apple cart. Many Democrats support him as well.

Rep. Paul Kanjorski, a 12-term congressman, said that shortly before Congress was scheduled to vote on authorizing military force against Iraq, top officials of the CIA showed select members of Congress three photographs it alleged were Iraqi Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), better known as drones. Kanjorski said he was told that the drones were capable of carrying nuclear, biological, or chemical agents, and could strike 1,000 miles inland of east coast or west coast cities,” Walter Brasch writes for Counterpunch. “Kanjorski said he and four or five other congressmen in the room were told UAVs could be on freighters headed to the U.S. Both secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and President Bush wandered into and out of the briefing room, Kanjorski said.”
Of course, this was nothing short of a brazen lie—but apparently a lie at least a few Congress critters bought hook, line, and sinker, not really surprising as discernment—to say nothing of higher mental ability—seems to be in short supply in the District of Criminals. It really is quite remarkable how easily Congress was bamboozled by Neocon lies and threadbare fabrications. As the mass murder campaign against Iran gears up, only time will tell if Congress will be swindled once again—that is if the Neocons even bother with Congress this time around.
Kanjorski said it was the second time he was called to the White House for a briefing. He had opposed giving the President the powers to go to war, and said that he hadn’t changed his mind after a first meeting. Until he saw the pictures, Kanjorski said, “I hadn’t thought that Iraq was a threat.” That second meeting changed everything. After he left that meeting, said Kanjorski, he was willing to give the President the authorization he wanted since the drones “represented an imminent danger.”
Kanjorski said he went to see Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), a retired Marine colonel. Murtha, said Kanjorski, “turned white” when told about the drones; Murtha, a former intelligence officer, believed that such information was classified.
Several years later, Kanjorski said he learned that the pictures were “a g*d-d@**ed lie,” apparently taken by CIA photographers in the desert in the southwest of the U.S. The drone story itself had already been disproved, although not many major media carried that story.
Recall Bush claiming Saddam Hussein had at his disposal “a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles” he said “could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas” and according to Bush’s Neocon script the Iraqis were “exploring ways of using these UAVs for missions targeting the United States,” nothing short of a remarkable feat as Iraq was suffering under a draconian sanctions regime at the time. Recall, as well, around about the time Bush made his preposterous claim—or rather a preposterous claim proffered by neocon “minds” ensconced in traitorous AEI and PNAC “think tanks”—the above photo appeared in the corporate media.
How many Americans believed the pathetic model pictured above—on par with a fifth grader’s science fair project—was indeed a sophisticated drone capable of reaching the United States by way of a ship departing from a country under embargo at the time remains to be calculated. Suffice it to say there is no shortage of chumps and easy marks in the United States, at least a few of them Congress critters.
Get ready for a re-run, for as con-man Joseph “Paper Collar Joe” Bessimer famously stated, there is “a sucker born every minute… and two to take ‘em.”
All of this murder and mayhem is based on a mountain of lies. The dumb sheeple back the war because they're scared witless, brainwashed with faux patriotism, or think that we need to expend a little blood for the sake of cheap oil. It's all LIES. Lindsey Williams explains why in this short video.

America's future hangs in the balance.
(Right-click the image at left and open the audio file in a new window to keep reading here while listening to the audio track.)
Recently, it has come to my attention that all over America, 26,000 pastors are being trained to tell their people to submit to martial law when (not if) it comes, using Romans 13 as the "justification". This is the same tactic that was used by Adolf Hitler. For the following reasons, I believe this is wrong from the perspective of God's Law.
The end goal is to wipe out all "fundamental" religions, and rebuild "Babylon", a one-world religious system with the "elite" as "lords of the planet" forever. To achieve this, they must destroy the middle class through taxation and the restriction of access to energy. Those who have understanding can see the similarities between Hitler's Third Reich and the NWO "Fourth Reich". Comparisons between Bush and Hitler are close to the mark, and this is why the Neocons' talking heads freak out when comparisons are made.
Romans 13 is mis-used to persuade Christians that they must submit to all authority, regardless of its conformity to God's law.
Quoting Romans 13:
I read Romans 13 and it is talking about God's laws, not man's laws.
By Greg A. Dixon
In recent years, Christians have interpreted Romans 13 as a command by God for unlimited submission to the governments of men. Many proponents of this belief have sat passively by, in the soft pews of their place of worship, while evil has triumphed in most areas of family and church life. In our pacifistic smugness, many have allowed government to become god without even knowing.
Yet, when confronted with the true meaning of Romans 13, absurd accusations are shouted in religious rhetoric toward those who would dare to break an unjust law or even to question the almighty government. The opponents of unlimited submission to government are deemed as rebellious, anarchist and disobedient. However, there is no practical, historical or biblical consistency in the shallow arguments of these simpletons.
A good case study in the heavy-handed tyrannical tactics and media mind-control methods used by the NWO and the mindless droids who serve them is found in
First, unlimited submission to government is not practical. For a philosophy to be a valid philosophy, it must be consistent. As a result, it does not make practical sense to blindly obey a tyrant like Adolph Hitler or deem a law such as abortion-on-demand a legitimate law just because one's government says it is public policy. (In other words, if the government "legalizes" the slaughter of unborn children, God's law still applies, and the Christian is not free to engage in infanticide). However, if Romans 13 teaches unlimited submission to government, then we must obey and acknowledge all laws, good and bad, as the will of God. If all governments are of God, then all laws are of God. This is not practical from any point of view.
Second, it is not historical. Our founding fathers recognized and understood tyranny and despotism. They perceived the ultimate end of the king's actions. Thus, they besought George III to relent in his persecutions and implored him to uphold his covenant agreement.
In July of 1774, our forefathers met in Fairfax County, Va., and considered ways of forcing Great Britain to redress American grievances. George Washington and George Mason were the instrumental agents in drafting what has come to be known as the "Fairfax Resolves."
Ponder for a moment Resolves five and six:
"Resolved that the claim lately assumed and exercised by the British Parliament, of making all such Laws as they think fit, to govern the people of these colonies, contrary to the first Principles of the Constitution, and the original Compacts by which we are dependent upon the British Crown and Government; but is totally incompatible with the privileges of a free people, and the natural Rights of Mankind; will render our own Legislatures merely nominal and nugatory, and is calculated to reduce us from a state of freedom and happiness to slavery and misery."
"Resolved that Taxation and Representation are in their nature inseparable; that the right of withholding, or of giving and granting their own money is the only effectual security to a free people, against the encroachments of Despotism and Tyranny; and that whenever they yield to one they fall prey to the other."
All of the Resolves are loaded with bullets that explode against a tyrannical and despotic government. The "shot that was heard around the world on Lexington green was loaded in the "Fairfax Resolves." How can one make that statement? After pleading with George III to uphold his covenant agreement and after seeking for a redress of grievances, the "coup de grace" is plainly stated in the 23rd Resolve:
"Resolved that it be recommended to the Deputies of the general Congress to draw up and transmit an humble and dutiful petition and remonstrance to his Majesty, asserting with decent firmness our just and constitutional Rights and Privileges, lamenting the fatal necessity of being compelled to enter into measures disgusting to his Majesty and his Parliament, or injurious to our fellow subjects in Great Britain; declaring the strongest terms of duty and affection to his Majesty's person, family and government, and our desire to continue our dependence upon Great Britain; and must humbly beseeching his Majesty, not to reduce his faithful subjects of America to a state of desperation, and to reflect, that from our Sovereign there can be but one appeal."
In simple terms, the Resolves offered George III two obvious choices. One was to fulfill his covenant obligations and be the king and ruler to the American Colonies that he had agreed to be or, second, to prepare for war. George III was asked to reflect upon the fact, that if he did not keep his end of the covenant, there could "be but one appeal."
Last --and most important -- it is not biblical. Daniel disobeyed Darius and went to the lions den. The three Hebrew children broke the law for not bowing. The parents hid baby Moses from Pharaoh. Rahab lied to protect the Hebrew spies. The Apostles went to prison for preaching Christ in the authority of Heaven. Paul and his followers in Acts 17 did contrary to all the decrees of Caesar in order to make Jesus the King. Even Jesus lived in direct opposition of the political religious leaders of his day and went to the cross for us.
Romans 13 is a treatise by Paul and the Apostles on the institution of model government. As we rightly divide the word of truth and take this passage in its total context, we will discover seven truths:
- 1. Good government is ordained by God.
- 2. Government officials are to be good ministers who represent God.
- 3. We the people must obey good and godly laws.
- 4. As we relate Romans 13 to America, our Constitution is the higher power -- not the IRS tax code.
- 5. Good government is not to be feared.
- 6. In America, we are to pay honor and custom and constitutional taxes to whom it is due.
- 7. Government is to protect the righteous and punish the wicked.
Do our Christian friends who use Romans 13 to teach that we should not oppose President Bush or any other political leader really believe that civil magistrates have unlimited authority to do anything they want without opposition? I doubt whether they truly believe that.
For example, what if our President decided to resurrect the old monarchal custom of Jus Primae Noctis (Law of First Night)? That was the old medieval custom when the king claimed the right to sleep with a subject's bride on the first night of their marriage. Would our sincere Christian brethren sheepishly say, "Romans Chapter 13 says we must submit to the government"? I think not. And would any of us respect any man who would submit to such a law?
So, there are limits to authority. A father has authority in his home, but does this give him power to abuse his wife and children? Of course not. An employer has authority on the job, but does this give him power to control the private lives of his employees? No. A pastor has overseer authority in the church, but does this give him power to tell employers in his church how to run their businesses? Of course not. All human authority is limited in nature. No man has unlimited authority over the lives of other men. (Lordship and Sovereignty is the exclusive domain of Jesus Christ.)
By the same token, a civil magistrate has authority in civil matters, but his authority is limited and defined. Observe that Romans Chapter 13 clearly limits the authority of civil government by strictly defining its purpose: "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil . . . For he is the minister of God to thee for good . . . for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."
Notice that civil government must not be a "terror to good works." It has no power or authority to terrorize good works or good people. God never gave it that authority. And any government that oversteps that divine boundary has no divine authority or protection.
Did Moses violate God's principle of submission to authority when he killed the Egyptian taskmaster in defense of his fellow Hebrew? Did Elijah violate God's principle of submission to authority when he openly challenged Ahab and Jezebel? Did David violate God's principle of submission to authority when he refused to surrender to Saul's troops? Did Daniel violate God's principle of submission to authority when he disobeyed the king's law to not pray audibly to God? Did the three Hebrew children violate God's principle of submission to authority when they refused to bow to the image of the state? Did John the Baptist violate God's principle of submission to authority when he publicly scolded King Herod for his infidelity? Did Simon Peter and the other Apostles violate God's principle of submission to authority when they refused to stop preaching on the streets of Jerusalem? Did Paul violate God's principle of submission to authority when he refused to obey those authorities who demanded that he abandon his missionary work? In fact, Paul spent almost as much time in jail as he did out of jail.
Remember that every apostle of Christ (except John) was killed by hostile civil authorities opposed to their endeavors. Christians throughout church history were imprisoned, tortured, or killed by civil authorities of all stripes for refusing to submit to their various laws and prohibitions. Did all of these Christian martyrs violate God's principle of submission to authority?
So, even the great prophets, apostles, and writers of the Bible (including the writer of Romans Chapter 13) understood that human authority – even civil authority – is limited.
Plus, Paul makes it clear that our submission to civil authority must be predicated on more than fear of governmental retaliation. Notice, he said, "Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake." Meaning, our obedience to civil authority is more than just "because they said so." It is also a matter of conscience. This means we must think and reason for ourselves regarding the justness and rightness of our government's laws. Obedience is not automatic or robotic. It is a result of both rational deliberation and moral approbation.
Therefore, there are times when civil authority may need to be resisted. Either governmental abuse of power or the violation of conscience (or both) could precipitate civil disobedience. Of course, how and when we decide to resist civil authority is an entirely separate issue. And I will reserve that discussion for another time.
Beyond that, we in the United States of America do not live under a monarchy. We have no king. There is no single governing official in this country. America's "supreme Law" does not rest with any man or any group of men. America's "supreme Law" does not rest with the President, the Congress, or even the Supreme Court. In America, the U.S. Constitution is the "supreme Law of the Land." Under our laws, every governing official publicly promises to submit to the Constitution of the United States. Do readers understand the significance of this distinction? I hope so.
This means that in America the "higher powers" are not the men who occupy elected office, they are the tenets and principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution. Under our laws and form of government, it is the duty of every citizen, including our elected officials, to obey the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, this is how Romans Chapter 13 reads to Americans:
"Let every soul be subject unto the [U.S. Constitution.] For there is no [Constitution] but of God: the [Constitution] that be [is] ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the [Constitution], resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For [the Constitution is] not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the [Constitution]? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For [the Constitution] is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for [the Constitution] beareth not the sword in vain: for [the Constitution] is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For this cause pay ye tribute also: for [the Constitution is] God's minister, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor."
Dear Christian friend, the above is exactly the proper understanding of our responsibility to civil authority in these United States, as per the teaching of Romans Chapter 13.
Furthermore, Christians, above all people, should desire that their elected representatives submit to the Constitution, because it is constitutional government that has done more to protect Christian liberty than any governing document ever devised by man. As I have noted before in this column, Biblical principles form the foundation of all three of America's founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution, and The Bill of Rights.
As a result, Christians in America (for the most part) have not had to face the painful decision to "obey God rather than men" and defy their civil authorities.
The problem in America today is that we have allowed our political leaders to violate their oaths of office and to ignore, and blatantly disobey, the "supreme Law of the Land," the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, if we truly believe Romans Chapter 13, we will insist and demand that our civil magistrates submit to the U.S. Constitution.

As it turns out, the “threat” of terrorist attacks against the United States by Hezbollah, included in the latest National Intelligence Estimate, was casually thrown in, apparently to add some color.
“Speaking under condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly, several intelligence officers asserted that the report was sloppy and lacked supporting evidence,” reports Larisa Alexandrovna for Raw Story. “The NIE seems... fiddled [with],” regarding Hezbollah, one high-ranking CIA official told Alexandrovna. “Whether it is or isn’t is not really the point. The point is that nobody is ready to believe it.” Nobody, that is, except a gullible American public, barraged 24-7 with idiotic tales of terrorists gone wild, ready to invade the homeland and convert Americans at gunpoint to Islamofascism. “As regards to the Hezbollah ‘threat,’” the official added, “they just threw that in. Nobody in CIA talks to Hezbollah, and they’re living off their assessments from back in the 80s, which they really never got right anyway.”
The CIA never got it right, preferring instead to regurgitate Israeli “assessments” formulated after the invasion of Lebanon. Fact is, Hezbollah was organized as a response to Israel’s invasion in 1982. Even the CFR admits as much. “Hezbollah was founded in 1982 in response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and subsumed members of the 1980s coalition of groups known as Islamic Jihad. It has close links to Iran and Syria,” same as the United States has “close links” with Israel, although the CFR does not bother to make such comparisons.
“Released last week, the NIE is a consensus view from all sixteen intelligence agencies and departments, compiled by the National Intelligence Council and signed off on by the agencies involved as well as by the Director for National Intelligence,” Alexandrovna continues. “The document represents the ‘official’ intelligence community view on any issue related to national security.” In other words, the NIE consists of made-up threats and should be considered a work of fiction, not an “estimate” of reality. “Intelligence officials would not confirm whether the classified version contained dissenting views. However, several expressed concern that parts of the report may have been politicized,” that is to say it is, at least in part, a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, designed to scare witless Americans. Director of National Intelligence Vanee Vines told Alexandrovna “the key judgments of the NIE speak for themselves,” sort of the same way Dr. Seuss’ poetic meters speak to children.
“The main analysis of the report focuses on the rise and resurgence of Al Qaeda in Pakistan. Most sources interviewed for this article agreed with the general assertion provided in the analysis—that Pakistan is harboring al Qaeda and has a record of support for terrorism.” Of course, there is scant evidence “al-Qaeda,” itself a creation of the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI, is on the rise in Pakistan, although it is certainly true the intelligence service of Pakistan “has a record of support for terrorism,” most notably in Jammu and Kashmir. Kashmiri militants are trained and supported the same way the “Afghan Arabs” were trained and supported, with the guiding hand—and a large infusion of U.S. taxpayer cash—of the CIA. Point is, the tribal area of South Waziristan is not directly under the control of Pakistan, as it was not fully under the control of the British Raj. It remains a wild card in need of domestication. Neolib loan sharks demand as much.
Edward Gistaro, key drafter of the NIE and the national intelligence expert for transnational threats at the National Intelligence Council, provided an excuse for the addition of Hezbollah to the NIE. The Hezbollah threat emerges “partly out of what we saw last summer in Lebanon where Hezbollah publicly said that they saw a U.S. hand in the conflict there,” a big time no-brainer, as the United States has provided Israel with an astounding $1.6 trillion in handouts since 1973. “Israel is the largest recipient of US foreign aid. It is already due to get $2.04 billion in military assistance and $720 million in economic aid in fiscal 2003. It has been getting $3 billion a year for years,” reports the Christian Science Monitor. “Many Americans would probably say it is money well spent to support a beleaguered democracy of some strategic interest,” never mind this “democracy” is restricted to people of Jewish ancestry and non-Jews in Palestine are not only victims of a pernicious form of apartheid but victims of frequent mass murder campaigns conducted with expensive high-tech tools provided by unobservant Americans. For the racist Israeli government, controlled by fanatical Jabotinskyite Likudniks, no doubt this is “money well spent,” or rather the money of other people well spent.
It is precisely these Israelis, in collaboration with American neocons—who are often more fanatical when it comes to slaughtering Muslims and Arabs than the Jabotinskyites—who are pushing the fantastical Hezbollah threat. “As bombing and missile attacks continue between Israel and Hezbollah, Israeli officials have warned their diplomats around the world about the threat of Hezbollah sleeper cells,” ABC News reported last July. “There is no credible intelligence pointing to an imminent Hezbollah attack on the United States, but sources say to ABC News that the group is capable of striking here,” same as properly motivated Greenlanders are “capable of striking here.”
As we know, U.S. foreign policy is currently in the clutches of a coven of criminally insane neocons, determined to launch “World War IV,” the war against Israel’s enemies. As should be expected, the kissing cousins of the neocons, the venal Wall Street neolibs, are on board with this noxious plan, as the “war on terror” is as much about squashing all resistance to loan sharking schemes and fire sales as it is the serial murder of all who would oppose Israeli hegemony.

which became operational in 1967
Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968 and ratified it in 1970.
The Islamic Revolution in 1979 saw the overthrow of a CIA backed Dictatorship-The Shah (KING)
Israel, a nuclear state, has never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. By NOT declaring nuclear capabilities, Israel doesn't have to let inspectors in!
The Iranians took their own country back, to escape British and American control of their oil through the Bourse, IMF and World Bank, and refused Kissinger's extortion racket requirement that they buy U.S. T-Bonds with their oil revenues, and thus rid themselves of a brutal dictatorship! Because Iran and Iraq refused to trade oil for U.S. dollars, they were put on the hit list. Other nations are also moving away from the dollar, which will lead to the collapse of the dollar regardless of WHAT we do at this point. Attacking Iran is even more stupid than the gangster policies that led up to this state of affairs, and will turn the entire world against America. The criminals (CIA operatives included) who are orchestrating this need to be locked up and then executed!
The US now arms Iran's neighbors with nuclear weapons, and has been painting Iran into a corner with threats of WAR! Iran isn't a threat to the US, nor is Iran a threat to Israel! Iran has rich deposits of plutonium and could offer it on the world market as a cheap source of energy, thus breaking the energy stranglehold of Big Oil.
It's the US and Israel that has been threatening Iran! Hillary Clinton is pro nuclear war. She must be STOPPED!!!

"Theoretically a society could be completely made over in something like 15 years, the time it takes to inculcate a new culture into a rising crop of youngsters ... Prepare now for a surprising universe."
These techniques are variously referred to as "consensus building", or "sensitivity training", but the point that needs to be emphasized is that the conclusion is determined in advance, and the trained facilitator uses mind control manipulation to steer the group to the pre-determined "consensus".
Nowhere is this method more obvious and blatant than in the proceedings of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and the resultant report which they issued.
It is junk science and blatant propaganda. This is not science. It is crooked politics and Satanic (NWO) religion. Al Gore is a goddess worshipper and a liar.
Of the multinational corporations supporting the global warming hysteria, ALL stand to profit in the millions of dollars, and some to the tune of billions of dollars while the rest of us suffer under draconian C02 regulations. Multinational corporations are a construct of feudalism... on a global plantation where we are forced to pay exorbitant prices for the necessities of life while the elite "overlords" live like gods.
Al Gore makes it sound like a disaster that the coastal ice in Greenland is melting, but conveniently fails to mention that there is a vast continuing buildup in inland areas. His "20-foot" figure for potential sea level rise is a GROSS exaggeration that can only be a deliberate lie calculated to generate hysterical fear among the misinformed. His film, "An Inconvenient Truth" is mandatory course material for many students. It is blatant propaganda promoted by the very corporations that will benefit most from global mercantilism. Centuries ago the Vikings planted crops and orchards on land that is now continually frozen. I wonder what they would say of this hysterical global warming idiocy and the prospect of not the "end of the world", but a return to warmer and more prosperous global conditions.

There have been several attempts at "debunking" the evidence in this video, mostly based on the notion that what is seen is water vapor. However, if you watch the video carefully, you will note that this is just a "scientific-sounding" obfuscation. The tooth is initially wet (perhaps) but the vapor increases whenever there is any rubbing or scraping of the tooth... NOT when more water is introduced.
Mercury is a toxic metal that "short circuits" the brain, inducing autism, ADHD, and other neurological degenerative diseases and disorders.
Mercury is also found in vaccines, shellfish, and tuna.
Mercury has become a contaminant of great concern. Mercury is found in the air, waterways, lakes, and the ocean. It is released into the air by the combustion of coal for electricity, and may be transported from the air to soil and water by rain. The mercury in urban storm water sediment results in part from improperly discarded fluorescent lights, electrical switches, thermometers, other mercury-containing devices, and historical and ongoing industrial activities.
Methyl mercury is more hazardous to humans and other animals than elemental mercury. We do not know all the sources of methyl mercury, but evidence suggests that methyl mercury escapes landfills into the air. It is suspected that this is primarily due to chemical modification by bacteria which converts elemental mercury disposed in landfills to methyl mercury.
Mercury readily evaporates, and mercury is readily absorbed into your body when you touch it. If you are near enough to touch mercury, as after a mercury thermometer breaks, you are most likely also inhaling mercury. (See the links to the Broken Mercury Thermometer Video below.) In humans, mercury vapor affects the nervous system, lungs, kidneys, skin, and eyes. In waterways, mercury builds up in fish tissue and increases in concentration as it is transferred along the food chain. Mercury that has accumulated in fish tissue is passed on to wildlife and to humans. Mercury can have a permanent impact on fetal and child development.
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has issued health advisories to fishers and their families giving recommendations on how much of the fish in these areas can be safely eaten. OEHHA also provides advice to the general public so people can continue to eat fish without putting their health at risk. See Methylmercury in Sport Fish: Information for Fish Consumers.

The Great Global Warming Swindle is a controversial documentary film by British television producer Martin Durkin, which argues against the (non-scientific) opinion that human activity is the main cause of global warming. The film showcases scientists, economists, politicians, writers, and others who are skeptical of the "scientific consensus" on anthropogenic global warming. Publicity for the program states that global warming is "a lie" and "the biggest scam of modern times."
The program's accuracy has been "disputed on multiple points" and several commentators have criticized it for being one-sided, noting that "the mainstream position on global warming" (a politically and economically driven position funded to the tune of billions of dollars in a huge global "business") is supported by the scientific academies of the major industrialized nations and other scientific organizations. The film disputes the positions of these scientific organizations by interviewing scientists and others, including Richard Lindzen and other contributors to reports by the IPCC, who disagree with explanations that attribute global warming to human activities.
If you think Al Gore's film is the gospel truth, I have some ocean front property in Arizona that may interest you.
My SUV (or yours) is not the enemy. Politicians are in bed with the lobbyists with the most money ---GREED. Big business buys what big business wants. Money is the root of this evil. The real end will be when God decides: "this is it". Then, the new beginning will really be out of this world.
In a restored earthly paradise, CO2 levels will be many times what they are now. The globalists' plan to depopulate the earth is in synch with Satan's agenda, not God's. They seek to limit CO2 increases by destroying life, thus "saving the planet". It makes no sense except from a spiritual perspective. Satan is the Destroyer, and Al Gore is his minion.
British-born physicist Freeman Dyson has revealed three "heresies", two of which challenge the current scientific orthodoxy that anthropogenic carbon causes climate change.
"The fuss about global warming is grossly exaggerated," writes Dyson in his new book Many Colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe, published on Wednesday.
He pours scorn on "the holy brotherhood of climate model experts".
The following video featuring Lindsey Williams is related to the above topic in ways you might not suspect. This video is also featured as the #2 video on the post "Out There TV Episodes".
Be sure to catch this amazing episode with Lindsey Williams as he lays bare the truth about our economy, the North American Union and so much more.
Mr. Williams went to Alaska in 1971 as a missionary and joined the Transalaska oil pipeline as a Chaplain in 1974. Because of the executive status accorded to him as Chaplain, Lindsey was given access to information documented in his eye opening book, The Energy Non-Crisis, and which he is sharing with us on Out There TV. Read the book HERE.
Hear Lindsey as he tells us, "There is a group of people on the earth that tell the President what to do, the congress what laws to pass, and that manipulate currencies." Learn exactly what the Bourse is, why it's not the Arab sheiks or the oil companies that set the price of oil, and what connection the fake oil crisis has to the value of our dollar and the deficit.

Our sun is heating up.
This became noticeable after its last 11 year cycle, when its radiance did not decrease as expected. At the current rate, in another 5-6 years, the sun's radiance will be double what it was 18 years ago. SUV's and CO2 emissions have nothing to do with it. For the real agenda behind the global warming hype, check out this video series.
Something big is happening, and as usual, our government and media are lying about it.
Revelation 16:8-14 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
According to renowned scientist/mystic Nassim Haramein the sun has been noticeably changing since 1999.
Solar flares coming to earth from the sun are particles and plasma of sun energy being thrown off and filling our atmosphere. It is a HUGE burst of energy coming our way. He said as an analogy that the difference coming on us is very rapid -- like going from the lowest note on a piano to the highest. These solar waves are full of ions and electrical energy that raise the vibration of everything in and around us. The sun is changing its composition--it is becoming what the ancient Mayans and Egyptians call the 6th Sun. He says there is NO GOING BACK. We've been getting these hits in waves, but soon it will be a constant. He says that global weather changes are not caused by the greenhouse effect. It is the Sun's effect.
The Russian scientist Dmitriev also says we are being zapped by the sun.
Excerpt from: PLANETOPHYSICAL STATE OF THE EARTH AND LIFE
By DR. ALEXEY N. DMITRIEV
"Current, in process, geological, geophysical, and climatical alterations of the Earth are becoming more and more irreversible. At the present time researchers are revealing some of the causes which are leading to a general reorganization of the electro-magnetosphere (the electromagnetic skeleton) of our planet, and of its climatic machinery."
The climatic and biosphere processes here on Earth (through a tightly connected feedback system) are directly impacted by, and linked back to, the general overall transformational processes taking place in our Solar System. We must begin to organize our attention and thinking to understand that climatic changes on Earth are only one part, or link, in a whole chain of events taking place in our Heliosphere.
[These changes are powered and controlled by an electromagnetic power circuit flowing through our galaxy from a source far beyond the farthest reaches of the known universe, and not related in any way to carbon emissions on our planet. The great global warming scare is a tool for control, part of the old goddess religion which leads inevitably to mass human sacrifice.]

I strongly encourage all of you to thoroughly research Ron Paul, don't blindly believe what others say. If you research his track record, and his stance on the issues, you will see that he is:
A man of integrity
A strong proponent of individual liberties
Believes that people are born with inalienable rights, and the the government does not grant these rights, and has no authority to take them away
Promotes health freedom and alternative medicine
Has a scholarly understanding of the Constitution
and much more!
This is the kind of man that we need leading this country.
This is this Republic's last chance for survival! We MUST get Ron Paul elected as President. Donate to his campaign and spread the word!
Remember: "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
Article of the day: How Can You NOT Get It?
As Ron Paul’s campaign for president continues to gain momentum -- largely from an Internet-based movement -- people are beginning to wonder not only if Ron Paul could really win … but what would happen if he did.
Paul’s ideals are directly in contrast with the “carefully concealed oligarchy” that currently runs the United States. Both Democratic and Republican candidates are typically “puppets” of the establishment, but Ron Paul is a freelancer, and his three central ideas radical:
- 1. The federal government must follow the strict guidelines of the Constitution.
- 2. America should deconstruct its empire, withdraw our troops from around the world, and practice a non-interventionist foreign policy.
- 3. America should abolish the Federal Reserve Bank, eliminate fiat currency, and return to hard money.
Considering the massive bloodshed that has occurred historically any time the oligarchy was challenged, this LewRockwell.com article questions the lengths and powers that he will go to keep Ron Paul from changing the status quo.
Every premise of Paul’s campaign is “unacceptable, repellant and hateful to America’s ruling elite.” A plan to keep their existence intact would include the following sequentially escalating, steps:
- Ignore him and, if possible, exclude him from debates
- Ridicule and fear-mongering that distorts Paul’s ideas
- Scandal, real or fabricated
- Threats through the criminal justice system (with a “plea bargain” to drop his candidacy)
- Ensuring his presidency ended in failure, if he was elected
The question is, "have Americans had enough of the evil and corruption that casts a black pall over our once great nation?"
One of the most poignant statements in this film is the quote by American politician Adlai Stevenson in 1952, who over 50 years ago said:
“The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live, and fear breeds repression. Too often, sinister threats to the Bill of Rights, to the freedom of the mind, are concealed under the patriotic cloak of anti-communism.”
"Today," the narrator continues, “it’s the cloak of anti-terrorism.”
All too often, it is fear that drives people to accept, without question, the numerous new threats to your personal freedom. They are introduced under the guise of protecting you.
This is the case with compulsory vaccinations, increasingly strict supplement regulations, and even the collection of the federal income tax.
Many liberties and basic rights are already being threatened, largely because profits and corporate greed -- not the will of the people -- are now the driving force of the United States. In my opinion they are your:
- Freedom of Association
- Freedom of Information
- Freedom of Speech
- Right to Legal Representation
- Freedom From Unreasonable Searches
Please, let’s not become silent about the freedoms, health-based and otherwise, that the United States was founded on. This Web site is an open forum for you to express your beliefs, and pass on important information to your friends and loved ones.
In 1952 Adlai Stevenson also said:
"It is far easier to fight for principles than to live up to them."

The Pentagon has formally declared psychological warfare on the American people by announcing it will engage in propaganda and indoctrination by using the Internet and media to "set the record straight" on the war on terror. Recent history clearly indicates this is just the latest outreach of an insipid brainwashing agenda that is totally unlawful and anathema to the U.S. Constitution.
The Bush Neocons have already spent 28 billion dollars funding this illegal propaganda policy (PsyWar against the American people using our money!)
In the past, the military or the government did not announce that they were planting surreptitious propaganda to target U.S. audiences, they did it secretly and for a very good reason - because it was and still is illegal.
But since George W. Bush, backed by his renegade legal advisors, officially announced the end of the Republic and the birth of the "decidership," he can arbitrarily create out of thin air, ignore, or amend any law he likes and to all intents and purposes is above the Constitution and has ascribed to himself total dictator power. The only thing that remains is, in his own words, to " catapult the propaganda ," in an attempt to legitimize his absolute rule and assure the blind obedience of the American people to his junta's future desecrations of foreign lands and the bill of rights at home.

The image above is a diagram of a circuit. What does it take to make a galaxy? The popular view in astronomy today imagines that black holes and dark matter organize galactic structure and induce the observed motions. Neither can be seen, but both can be described mathematically without straying from the paradigm of an electrically neutral, gravitationally-driven cosmos. The problem for astronomers is that the gravitational model looks good in their mathematical equations, but it is disproven by scientific observation.
As Dr. Scott has written:
"In the ES [Electric Star] model, perhaps the most important factor in determining any given star's characteristics is the strength of the current density in Amperes per square meter (A/m2) measured at that star's surface. If a star's incoming current density increases, the arc discharges on its surface (photospheric tufts) will get hotter, change color (away from red, toward blue), and get brighter. The absolute brightness of a star, therefore, depends on two things: the strength of the current density impinging into its surface, and the star's size (the star's diameter). Therefore, we add another scale to the horizontal axis of the HR diagram: Current Density at the Star's Surface."
This is what is happening to our sun. The current coming from a source OUTSIDE the known universe is increasing. Our sun is heating up, and at the present rate, in another 5-6 years its radiance will be twice what it was 18 years ago. THIS is the true cause of global warming. It is normal for the sun to have an 11-year "period". At the end of its last 11 year cycle, it continued to gain in energy output, rather than decreasing.
As demonstrated in numerous laboratory experiments, electric currents in plasma can produce all of the common structures observed in the heavens, from simple filaments to the polar jets of stars and galaxies to the “wheels within wheels” found at the cores of nebulas and other high-energy formations.
The Crab Nebula
On July 4, 1054 AD, Chinese chroniclers recorded an apparent supernova they called a "guest star" in the constellation Taurus, near the star Zeta Tauri. It was bright enough to be visible in daylight, but faded and disappeared again about a year later.
In 1731 astronomer John Bevis discovered a bright nebula in the same location. When Charles Messier saw it in 1758, he first thought this "fuzzy object" might be a comet, but he found that it never moved.
Using a larger telescope in 1844, Lord Ross thought the nebula resembled a crab's claw, and the description stuck. More than ten light years across, the Crab Nebula is now thought to be the remains of a star that exploded in 1054.
Today's astronomical instruments see much more than Messier's fuzzy patch. They see filaments and complex structures, in colors and wavelengths that highlight newly discovered phenomena. For example, the star at the center of the nebula blinks 30 times a second. We now call such stars "pulsars".
The high-resolution picture of the Crab Nebula above (upper), taken by the Very Large Telescope (VLT), shows the filamentation produced by magnetic fields and electric currents, as material races away from the nebula's core at half the speed of light--a "higher speed than expected from a free explosion", according to NASA reports. Acceleration of particles is a trademark of electrical activity, and no other force in space is known to achieve this feat.
In the lower photograph taken by the Chandra X-Ray Telescope, we see the internal dynamics of the Crab Nebula, revealing structure typical of the intensely energetic activity observed in decades of laboratory experiments with electrical discharge in plasma. That these dynamics are revealed by x-rays is significant because x-ray activity always accompanies high-energy electrical interactions. The internal polar configuration is of particular interest. A torus or wheel-like structure revolves around an axial column--presenting what some have called a "doughnut on a stick". Polar columns or jets are expected in intense plasma discharge.
In their discussion of the Crab Nebula, NASA spokesmen refer to "a scintillating halo, and an intense knot of emission dancing, sprite-like, above the pulsar's pole". Though gravitational theories never envisioned the polar "jets", "haloes", and "knots" of the Crab Nebula, we can now recognize these as prime examples of electrical forces in the universe.
From the "mainstream point of view" it hides a black hole. However, no theorist exploring the mathematical wonders of black holes ever posited the structures observed around it. But the electric viewpoint sees something much different, something that was anticipated by the experimental work of Hannes Alfven and his colleagues who founded today’s plasma cosmology.
The core of our galaxy is a region full of mysteries, including flares that can brighten the central area by a factor of four in a few days or by a factor of two in forty minutes. From an electric universe point of view, this is the most active expression of the electric power of the Milky Way.
Dust veils most of the core of the Milky Way from optical observations, but today's radio, infrared, ultraviolet and x-ray telescopes uncover intriguing images and data about the activity at the center of our home galaxy. It's a region full of mysteries, including the remnants of an unexplained hyper-explosion a few thousand years ago and flares that can brighten the central area by a factor of four in a few days or by a factor of two in forty minutes.
From an electric universe point of view, this is the most active expression of the electric power of the Milky Way. This is where currents are focused from the spiral arms down into a tiny donut-shaped plasmoid. From the center of this plasmoid, electric currents spray out from the axis of the galaxy, then return along the spiral arms, inducing magnetic fields and lighting up the stars. The energy stored in the plasmoid is released in prodigious outbursts of high speed particles and radiation, heralded by explosive flares.
A closer radio telescope view of Sagittarius A can be seen here. The anomalous “temperature variations” at the galactic core are noted here. And the relationship of the galactic core to electric currents feeding star formation is discussed here.
The Chandra X-Ray Telescope has found anomalous temperatures at the core of the Milky Way, but the anomalies disappear in the light of plasma lab experiments.
The Chandra news release announcing this new image of the center of the Milky Way said that the X-ray spectrum of the gases "is consistent with a hot gas cloud that contains two components--10- million-degree Celsius gas and 100-million-degree gas."
This result was unexpected and difficult to explain. The press release describes the problem in greater detail: "Shock waves from supernova explosions are the most likely explanation for heating the 10-million-degree gas, but how the 100-million-degree gas is heated is not known. Ordinary supernova shock waves won't work, and heating by very high-energy particles produces the wrong spectrum of X-rays. Also, the observed Galactic magnetic field appears to rule out confinement and heating by magnetic turbulence."
Plasma cosmologists expected temperature discrepancies, because they've seen the same thing in plasma experiments. In the opening paragraph of his 1981 monograph, _Cosmic Plasma_, Hannés Alfvén discusses some of the oddities of plasma behavior that showed up in the lab but not in the simplified theories of physicists and astronomers: "The plasma exhibited striations, double layers, and an assortment of oscillations and instabilities. The electron temperature was often found to be one or two orders of magnitude larger than the gas temperature, with the ion temperature intermediate."
What Chandra has discovered is that the temperatures of plasma at the core of the Milky Way behave exactly the way they behave in plasma experiments on Earth. Some measurements show temperatures as expected, but others indicate temperatures ten to a hundred times higher. If astronomers had taken plasma lab results as seriously as they take hot gas cloud models, they wouldn't have been surprised.
Where is the power source?
The power "could be" generated locally. The rotational inertia of a body could drive the circuit in much the same way as a water-driven turbine in a dam drives a generator. Early plasma physicists often simply assumed such a mechanism. But because smaller-scale circuits in space are invariably coupled to larger-scale circuits (such as the coupling between the auroral circuit and the "solar wind" circuit), the Electric Universe posits a remote power supply.
An electrical current in plasma will generate its own magnetic field and "self constrict" the current channel. This is called the Bennett pinch effect. It produces filaments or threads of current that remain coherent over large distances. Multiple filaments tend to spiral around each other, forming helical "power cables" that can transmit electric power over large distances.
These cables have been identified running from equator to poles in the circuits that power the aurora. Plasma cosmologists also identify them in the filaments that extend from active "radio" galaxies to the "radio lobes" (double layers) far above each pole of such galaxies. Almost every body in the universe displays some kind of filamentation. Venus has a tail composed of invisible "stringy things" (NASA's description). Comets have tails composed of visible "stringy things"--the ion tails. The neon-light-like glows of planetary nebulas resolve, in close-up views, into intricate webs of strings. The jets of Herbig-Haro stars and active galaxies are often resolved into braided filaments. And the spiral arms of some galaxies look "hairy" with threads of material extending from them.
If all these filaments are Birkeland currents, they are only the visible portions of entire circuits. The rest of the circuit may generate magnetic fields that can be mapped, and the map will give an indication of the extent of the circuit.
The smaller image above is such a map of the galaxy M82. The arrows indicate the direction and strength of the magnetic field. The larger image is an artist's conception of a likely circuit schema that flows around and organizes the galaxy. High-density currents flow out along the spin axis to large distances. These distant regions are likely locations for energetic double layers (which show up as radio and x-ray lobes in certain active galaxies). The currents then spread out and flow circumferentially around to the equatorial plane. They return to the galactic core along the spiral arms, pulling in matter and pinching it into stars as they go.
This blows the gravitational model "out of the water" so-to-speak, since it explains the mechanism of "star formation". The conventional theory violates Boyle's gas law, but of course that didn't stop astronomers from promoting their "Big Bang" fairy tale.
Every element in these galactic circuits radiates energy. So the circuits must be powered through their coupling with a larger circuit. The extent of that larger circuit is indicated by the observation that galaxies occur in strings. This is why Arp's observations of connections between high-redshift objects (supposedly far away) and low-redshift galaxies (relatively nearby) are important to plasma cosmologists: If the far-away objects are really companions of nearby galaxies, everything we see outside the Milky Way is part of the "stringy" structure of the galaxies. The strings of galaxy-quasar groups are actually super-galactic Birkeland cables along which the groups are "pinched" out. Arp's observations raise the possibility that everything we see occurs along one braided filament that swirls from the Virgo supercluster to the Fornax supercluster, with our galaxy situated midway.
This "string of galactic superclusters" would then be a load in a circuit whose extent--and whose power supply--is far beyond all we presently see and know.
Hebrews 1:3 "...and upholding all things by the word of his power,...
Here is a sobering implication: our own Sun's future is by no means as certain as mainstream astronomy assures. The Birkeland current powering it could increase or decrease suddenly, and do so at any time. Surely we have stuff for the making of some great science-fiction doomsday scenarios here! Read the related article here.
When seeking to test a hypothesis, it is helpful to start with clear and undeniable facts. But when the impact theory is applied to the prominent lunar “rayed crater”, Tycho, the theory fails even the most obvious tests.
Certainly the most conspicuous crater on the Moon is Tycho in the southern hemisphere. (For context, we have placed a full Hubble Telescope image of the Moon here). The crater is some 85 kilometers in diameter, displaying enigmatic “rays” that extend at least a quarter of the way around the moon.
The central peak, said to have been formed by a “rebound” of subterranean material, rises about 2 kilometers above the crater floor. Planetary scientists suggest that the flat floor of the crater (seen here) was formed by the pooling of melted material.
But the idea that an impact would create such an extensive pool of molten rock finds no support in impact experiments or in high-energy explosions. Not even an atomic explosion creates a flat melted floor of this sort. The force of the explosion shocks and ejects material. It does not hold the material in place to “melt” it into a lake of lava.
When the brilliant engineer, Ralph Juergens, considered the lunar craters Tycho and Aristarchus, he noted the distinct features of electrical discharge. He wrote in 1974, “…If Aristarchus and Tycho were produced by electric discharges, their clean floors would be just about what one would expect. The abilities of discharges to produce melting on cathode [negatively charged] surfaces and generally to ‘clean up’ those surfaces have been remarked upon since the earliest experiments with electric discharges”.
Juergens envisioned an interplanetary arc between the Moon and an approaching body (for his analysis, he summoned the planet Mars). While an instantaneous explosion does not have time to create a lava lake, an electric arc involving a long-distance flow of current between two approaching bodies, “would persist beyond the instant of any initial touchdown explosion”, leaving material melted in place.
Juergens saw Tycho as a “cathode crater”, and he drew special attention to Tycho’s “spectacular system of rays”. These, he suggested, are the very kind of streamers an electrical theorist would look for—a signature of the electron pathways that triggered the Tycho discharge.
Of course, the astronomers’ consensus today is that the streamers are the trails of material ejected from the crater into narrow paths over extraordinary distances. But the “rays”, Juergens noted, have no discernible depth, while material exploding from a Tycho-sized crater “would at least occasionally fall more heavily in one place than in another and build up substantial formations. But no one has ever been able to point out such a ray ‘deposit’”.
The presence of the narrow rays over such long distances, according to Juergens, is “all-but-impossible to reconcile with ejection origins. Enormous velocities of ejection must be postulated to explain the lengths of the rays, yet the energetic processes responsible for such velocities must be imagined to be focused very precisely to account for the ribbon-thin appearance of the rays”. In fact, this challenge has found no answer in more recent scientific exploration. No experimental explosion at any scale has ever produced anything comparable to the well-defined 1500-kilometer “rays” of Tycho.
Even more telling is the fact that the rays are punctuated with numerous small craters. An early explanation was that "some solid material was shot out with the jets and produced 'on-the-way' craters". But such narrow trajectories for secondary impactors are an absurdity under the mechanics of an explosion. And the total volume of ejected material needed to form the secondary craters along Tycho's rays, would amount to some 10,000 cubic kilometers – an amount of material entirely inconsistent with careful measurements indicating that practically all material excavated from Tycho's crater has been deposited in its rim. However, the ray elements, terminating on small craters, are the very markers that today’s electrical theorists have cited repeatedly as definitive evidence of an electrical discharge path. As Wallace Thornhill has so often observed, such discharge streamers frequently terminate at a crater. In fact, this is exactly what Gene Shoemaker found when investigating the puzzles of Tycho—"...many small secondary craters, too small to be resolved by telescopes on earth, occur at the near end of each ray element."
When compared to an imagined sphere of the Moon’s average radius, the surrounding highland region occupied by Tycho is more than 1200 meters above the “surface” of that sphere. The crater site appears to be at the summit, or very close to the summit, of terrain that trends downward in every direction away from the site for hundreds of kilometers. For the impact theory, this location can only be an accident. But for the electrical theorists, the elevation on which Tycho sits is not accidental. Lightning is attracted to the highest point on a surface. (That is, of course, the principle behind lightning arrestors placed on the pinnacles of tall buildings).
Though astronomers see Tycho’s rays as material ejected from the focal point of an impact, a mere glance at the picture above is sufficient to make clear that not all of the streamers radiate from a central point. Is this surprising? A mechanical impact has a single focal point and cannot explain these offset rays. Juergens noted that they "diverge from a common point, or common focus, located on or buried beneath the western rim of the crater." The electrical interpretation of Tycho sees the streamers as paths of electrons rushing across the lunar highlands to the highest point, where it launches into space to form the lightning "leader" stroke. The high point is destroyed in the process. The powerful lightning "return stroke" that forms the Tycho crater comes minutes afterwards and focuses on the nearest high point, a few kilometers to the east. In support of this explanation, the crater Tycho is surrounded by a dark halo of ejecta that blankets the extensive ray system, laid down earlier.
Tycho's crater rim rises about one kilometer above the surrounding terrain and the crater walls exhibit terraces (shown here) that are not characteristic of high energy explosions. However, such terracing is observed in innumerable instances of electrical discharge machining. (See the large terraced crater in the picture on the right here). This terracing may be due to the fact that electrical current flows in plasma in the form of twisted filament pairs – rather like a double helix. So the terracing is caused by the cutting action of the rotating current filaments on the crater wall. Indeed, some lunar craters exhibit bilateral corkscrew terracing – another observation inexplicable by the impact model, but remarkably consistent with the principle of an arc constituted of twin rotating “Birkeland Currents”.
While it is possible to get a “rebound peak” close to the center of an explosion, such a peak is not typical. In the electrical cratering experiments by plasma physicist CJ Ransom, (as seen here) central peaks were often the norm. As long ago as 1965, attention was drawn to the similar incidence of craters with central peaks in lunar craters and laboratory spark-machined craters. They seem to be an effect of the rotating current filaments, which may leave the center of a crater relatively untouched.
The electrical theorists find great irony in the many examples of earlier researchers who pointed to the electrical properties of phenomena that official science eventually learned to ignore. In 1903, W. H. Pickering, in his book The Moon, suggested that electrical effects could account for the narrow paths of Tycho’s “rays”, and he drew a direct comparison to the streamers seen in auroral displays. But as occurred so frequently in the twentieth century, evidence of electrical activity in space was ignored because it found no place in gravitational cosmology or in the curricula of astronomers and geologists.
