Iran’s Free Energy Technology

Iran’s Free Energy Technology

Dr M.T. Keshe is head of the Keshe Foundation in Belgium. Keshe’s recent lecture on Jan. 30, 2013 at Imperial College in London, revealed some incredible information about Iran’s space ship program, and also about a Peace Treaty which is currently in the hands of the world’s super powers, as we wait to see how the world’s ‘super-powers’ will react to these new advanced breakthroughs which Keshe himself has stated publicly, have already enabled Iran to apprehend not one, but two US drones.

Other applications include faster than light travel, nuclear gravity-magnetic field plasma free energy reactors and advanced medical treatment for the terminally ill.

Sexual Abuse Allegations Leads to British Cardinal Resignation*

Sexual Abuse Allegations Leads to British Cardinal Resignation*


Irish-born Scottish Cardinal Keith O’Brien has resigned effective immediately and will not take part in the papal conclave. His resignation means there will be no British representative at the conclave.

O’Brien had been accused by four priests of sexual exploitation when they were much younger, with some of the charges going back 30 years. He had previously denied the charges. They made an official complaint to the Papal Nuncio in Britain.

In a statement, the Antrim-born prelate said he had previously submitted his resignation as per usual when a cardinal reaches 75 but “the Holy Father has now decided that my resignation will take effect today.”

Cardinal O’Brien said:

“I do not wish media attention in Rome to be focused on me – but rather on Pope Benedict XVI and on his successor.”

In a statement issued by the Scottish Catholic Church, he said: “I have valued the opportunity of serving the people of Scotland and overseas in various ways since becoming a priest.

“Looking back over my years of ministry: For any good I have been able to do, I thank God. For any failures, I apologise to all whom I have offended.”

Cardinal O’Brien had been expected to resign in view of his 75th birthday on March 17.

Cardinal O’Brien said:

“I thank Pope Benedict XVI for his kindness and courtesy to me and, on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Scotland, I wish him a long and happy retirement. I also ask God’s blessing on my brother Cardinals who will soon gather in Rome to elect his successor.”

“I will pray with them and for them that, enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they will make the correct choice for the future good of the Church. May God who has blessed me so often in my ministry continue to bless and help me in the years which remain for me on Earth and may he shower his blessings on all the peoples of Scotland, especially those I was privileged to serve in a special way in the Archdiocese of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh.”

The Guardian’s Observer reported that the four, priests from the diocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, complained to nuncio Antonio Mennini, the Vatican’s ambassador to Britain.

The Vatican announced yesterday that they had received the complaint and that the pope  would deal with it.

The pope’s spokesman Father Federico Lombardi, said “The pope is informed about the problem and the issue is now in his hands.”

A Whole Medicinal Tree Now Privatized by Pharmaceutical Companies

A Whole Medicinal Tree Now Privatized by Pharmaceutical Companies

By Hwaa Irfan

The last five years of preparing the ground for total control of natural medicine hence our health through:

  • Cutting of access to homeopathy, and traditional affordable medicines
  • Making unproven vaccines appear to be a necessity, that make us more ill, and therefore more dependent on Big Pharma

Comes to light in many ways, but not as far as patenting a whole tree depriving humanity of its natural medicinal benefits, couldn’t come any smoother than patenting a natural medicine that has yet to be known to the masses.

This is what the controversial U.S Food and Drugs Administration has done recently.

Croton lechleri known locally as Sangre de Grado (the dragon’s blood tree) is a flowering tree of the Euphorbiaceae plant kingdom is native to northwestern South America. The parts used are the bark, resin/sap by the local medicine men, or curanderos.

It has been used to:

  • · heals wounds
  • · kills cancer cells
  • · stops bleeding
  • · prevents tumor growth
  • · kills bacteria
  • · stops mutations
  • · kills germs
  • · kills fungi
  • · kills viruses
  • · relieves diarrhea
  • · reduces inflammation
  • · relieves itching

It has also been used traditionally internally for ulcers: mouth, throat, intestines and stomach; as an antiviral for upper respiratory viruses, stomach viruses and HIV; internally and externally for cancer and, topically, for skin disorders, insect bites and stings according to the Raintree database.

Croton lechleri  mainly grows in upper Amazon region of Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia, and has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties.

Noted for its low toxicity, Croton lechleri the FDA has classified it has the drug, Fulyzac, and without any consultation with the original users, what has been given as God’s many gifts to man through nature, the FDA in the same light as the ‘Doctrine of Discovery’ has given sole rights to Salix Pharmaceuticals, which will be sold by Napo Pharmaceuticals, San Francisco as Fulyzac (crofelemer). They will make big bucks at our expense by selling extracts from the plant as Fulyzac as a treatment for the diarrhoea – a common adverse effect of harsh HIV drugs — not even selling it to cure HIV itself!

Following the trail created by agri-pharmaceutical companies with GM foods and crops, i.e. con the consumers out of their hard earned money, make them ill with something else, and then produce another drug to cure or more accurate act as a palliative for a disease they caused in the first place!

There is seems to be no stopping their greed for more wealth and power at our cost, depriving those who led the way to establishing its medicinal properties the indigenous peoples themselves!

The Land of No Gate to Happiness and Good Health, Goes 100% Organic

The Land of No Gate to Happiness and Good Health, Goes 100% Organic

By Hwaa Irfan

Above the maddening descent into economic slavery, contaminate foods, mass mind control entrenched starvation, homelessness, violent protests, counter-revolutions, and take everyone for what they’ve got mentality of the global elite, there still exists a place on this earth where the human being, and the environment that sustains us matters. You only have to earn how to speak Dzongkha if one is thinking about living there.

They rejected the notion of GDP, as the only way to measure a countries progress in 1971 and measure its prosperity on the basis of long forsaken concepts, like happiness, and spiritual, physical, social and environmental well being. In 20 years, they have doubled life expectancy, and almost 100% of its children attend primary school. In such terrain where it is impractical to take up the unhealthy habit of vehicle dependence as the only means of transport, they have a monthly pedestrian day banning all private vehicles from their roads.

If it was not so remote, it would be on the global elite’s map, but the Divine Laws of Nature have been kind to them.

Bordering China and India, only 110 miles from the north to south and 200 from east to west, this small landlocked country high up in the Himalayas is known to is people Druk Yul, “the Land of the Thunder Dragon.” Outsiders know it as the Bhutan.

Blessed with a diverse ecosystem in January 2013 at the controversial Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, Prime Minister Jigmi Thinley announced that Bhutan would be going 100% organic under their National Organic Policy.

Imagine being able to trust what you eat as being good for you, or as reporting Antonio Gucciardi commented:

“What this comes down to is no GMO, no pesticides, no herbicides, no fluoride-based spray products, no Monsanto intrusion at all, and a whole lot of high quality food available for the 700,000 citizens of Bhutan.”

Thinley explained in a statement for those perplexed by such notions

 “By working in harmony with nature, they can help sustain the flow of nature’s bounties.”

Like the world’s first city-state, Sumer (now Iraq) that was based upon farming Bhutan is a society mostly consisting of farmers. We have lost sight of the fact that without unabused healthy land, our well being is heavily compromised. Good food does not come from a factory r a GM seed.

As such, Bhutan’s and is very rich, but as Australian adviser to Bhutan, Andre Leu, pointed out:

“I don’t think it’s going to be that difficult given that the majority of the agricultural land is already organic by default.”

The kingdom of Bhutan places environmental concerns and spiritual wellbeing over rampant capitalism, and even greet their travellers, and tourists with:

“Life is a journey, complete it”  . . .and. . .  “Let nature be your guide”

Despite being one of the world’s poorest nations in relative terms, the principles of Gross National Happiness are applied throughout governance of the country.

One can see many of the ideas that have been questioningly applied in the global education agenda, meaning global governance has reached Bhutan. In an interview with the Guardian’s Annie Kelly head teacher, Choki Dukpa, explains she observes the difference in the children after 4 years as they make their way to class. Initially, the concept of a green school funded by UNICEF held no meaning for Dukpa. She soon discovered that it was not just about the environment, but about a way of life – a way of life that one might add that is being manipulated by global governance through the global education agenda (e.g. the International Baccalaureate) to dumb down students, and future societies so that they will not question the status quo .

They are taught math, science, agricultural techniques and environmental protection. No waste is allowed – everything is recycled, along with daily meditation sessions.  Dukpa explained to Kelly:

“An education doesn’t just mean getting good grades, it means preparing them to be good people,”

“This next generation is going to face a very scary world as their environment changes and social pressures increase. We need to prepare them for this.”

Bhutan is venerable to the consequences of climate change, and it has already been noted that climate change can undo what they have achieved.

“I want to be able to go out and see the world but then I want to come home to Bhutan and for it to be the same,” says 15-year-old Kunzang Jamso.

“I think we must keep the outside from coming here too much because we might lose our culture, and if you don’t have that then how do you know who you are?”

The Male Energy Field

By Hwaa Irfan

To say it is a little disconcerting to discover that a the bodies of a 5,9, and 11 -year old have been discovered at the bottom of a well is a huge underestimation in terms. In fact, it is sickening because they were raped before meeting their premature death. Sisters who were reported missing on, of all days, February 14th, did not return from school.

Even in the so-called liberated West, the problem with sexual violence against women and children continues without end, and has become more barbaric as if it is a social norm. Is it enough to contribute the upshot of this social disease to the transparency of a fraudulent democracy that is raping not only men of the illusion that they were ever in control of their lives, turning everyone into economic slaves, or thieves? Somehow, that picture does not include the elite (secular and otherwise) amongst whom; paedophilia remains a closely guarded secret at the cost and ruination of millions of lives yet to be lived with the callous acts of leaders over the affairs of man playing a hand no doubt.

This upshot in sordid acts of crime across cultures, and countries hint at some other force at play, and by this, one is referring to the universal changes, the Great Levelling that says enough is enough of our inhumane descent, it is time to return to our own sacredness.

For this Great Levelling to take place, it means all our miscreations have to come to the surface, all our skeletons have been making themselves visible in our respective lives, in one form or another. Whatever choice we make from that personal revelation will determine, the foundations upon which we continue from here on in living in the truth of what we have accepted.

What we have accepted is the conditional abuse of male power at every level, as women and as we as men. Women are not free from that conditional abuse of male power or merely victims, because as victims we at some point in our lives, have accepted that power whether as subjects, or as abusers even if that abuse is the expectation of what we want our children to be instead of allowing them to be. As the yin and yang symbol explains quite clearly, and is echoed by the male-female hormones, each exists within the other, that is, we possess both male and female energies.

The male energy is our aspect of the Divine, which is outward, directed into the world:

  • Goal-oriented
  • Competitive
  • Individuality
  • Separate from the Creator

The female energy, the incoming universal force is taking place to redress the imbalance of the aeons of individuality, separateness, conditionality. It is inward, nurturing, reflective, and arises from the Primal Source when balanced. When balanced, it does not differentiate, or separate, hence its ability to nurture. Our benefactors know this, hence why they have been pushing the same gendered agenda, and allowing women into the army, because this upsets the apple cart in their favour.  In balance, the male energy within women, helps to manifest the feminine which is a creative force.

However, as the perpetrator of abusive power meets the rising tide of change, it seems to be fighting its last great battle in the same way that it has been for aeons, through oppressive, conditional power as the female energy outlives its state of denial for denial has its limits. The Great Levelling is asking for transformation of that negative male energy field.

Yet, we stand witness to ruthless, barbaric male energy that does not want to change and will destroy everything with it until it accepts its divine feminine.

{It is He who created you from a single person and made his mate of like nature in order that he might dwell with her (in love). When they are united she bears a light burden and carries it about (unnoticed). When she grows heavy they both pray to Allah their Lord (saying): “If You give us a goodly child we vow we shall (ever) be grateful} (Qur’an 7:189)

For as Jamal A. Badawi explained:

“Both genders are recipients of the “divine breath” since they are created with the same human and spiritual nature (nafsin-waahidah)”

Which way we go depends on which energies we allow into our energy field, the conditional, abusive, competitive, vengeful negative male energy, or the unconditional, nurturing, creative, we are a one feminine energy, able to create more sustainable lives, communities, societies, thus world where everyone belongs.

9/11 Truth Movement Goes to Court in the UK*

Much of what is happening around the world now was put into gear with 9/11 i.e. the stripping of  every civi, and human right, in order to galvanize global resources for the benefit of a few!

9/11 Truth Movement Goes to Court in the UK*

By Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

On February 25, in the small town of Horsham in the United Kingdom, there will be a rare and potentially groundbreaking opportunity for the 9/11 truth movement. Three hours of detailed 9/11 evidence is to be presented and considered in a court of law where the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) will be challenged over the inaccurate and biased manner in which it has portrayed the events and evidence of 9/11.

Over the last 16 months, BBC has been challenged strongly by individuals in the UK over two documentaries that they showed in September 2011 as part of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, namely ‘9/11: Conspiracy Road Trip’ and ‘The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 Ten Years On’. Formal complaints were lodged with BBC over the inaccuracy and bias of these documentaries, which, according to 9/11 activists, was in breach of the operating requirements of BBC through their ‘Royal Charter and Agreement’ with the British public.

This document requires BBC to show information that is both accurate and impartial. These complaints were supported by the US-based educational charity Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth), which submitted detailed scientific evidence to BBC to buttress the complaints. The evidence focuses in particular on the confirmed free-fall of WTC 7 and NIST’s 2008 admission of this fact. In addition, over 300 AE911Truth petition signers supported these complaints by sending letters to BBC, requesting that BBC show this evidence to the public.

As a continuation of this process with the BBC, documentary film maker Tony Rooke has decided to take a personal stand on this issue. People in the United Kingdom are required to pay an annual TV licence fee which is used to fund BBC’s operations. Tony has refused to pay his TV licence fee on the basis of specific anti-terrorism legislation.

Section 15 of the UK Terrorism Act 2000, Article 3, states that it is offence to provide funds if there is a reasonable cause to suspect that those funds may be used for the purposes of terrorism. Tony’s claim is that BBC has withheld scientific evidence which demonstrates that the official version of the events of 9/11 is not possible and that BBC has actively attempted to discredit those people attempting to bring this evidence to the public. According to Rooke, by doing this, BBC is supporting a cover-up of the true events of 9/11 and is therefore potentially supporting those terrorist elements who were involved in certain aspects of 9/11 who have not yet been identified and held to account.

Rooke has been charged with a crime for not paying his TV Licence Fee. However, he has lodged a legal challenge to this charge and has now been successful in being granted an appearance in a Magistrate’s court, where he has three hours available to present his evidence to defend himself against the charge. Tony has put together a formidable team to support him in presenting the evidence, including the following two outstanding 9/11 researchers:

Professor Niels Harrit


Dr. Niels Harrit is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and is one of the world’s leading experts on the scientific evidence that contradicts the official story of 9/11. Professor Harrit’s team of scientists in Copenhagen proved that there was nano-engineered thermitic residue, both ignited and unignited, throughout the dust of the three WTC towers. He led the team and published the peer-reviewed study in an official scientific journal. He is also an expert on the other aspects of scientific evidence indicating controlled demolition of the three towers.

Professor Harrit was interviewed for a major documentary with BBC in 2011 where BBC clearly attempted to harass and discredit him rather than look at the scientific evidence, which was devastating to the official story of the destruction of the Twin Towers. Professor Harrit’s team took the precautionary step of recording this interview, as well as the interaction before and after the interview, which clearly shows the harassment and highly inappropriate conduct by BBC

Tony Farrell

Tony Farrell is a former Intelligence Analyst for the South Yorkshire Police Department. He was fired in 2010 because he felt compelled by his conscience to tell the truth in his official report and state that, due to his extensive analysis of the events of 9/11 and the 7/7 London bombings, he considered that the greatest terrorist threat to the public did not come from Islamic extremists but from internal sources within the US and British establishment. He is now dedicating his life to helping to expose the evidence and he is challenging his dismissal through international court.

Other members of Rooke’s presentation team include:

  • Ian Henshall: Leading UK author on 9/11 and founder of the UK group ‘Re-investigate 9/11’
  • Ray Savage: Former counterterrorism officer who demonstrates the official 9/11 story is not true
  • Peter Drew: UK AE911Truth Action Group Facilitator

In addition to these presenters, there are detailed written testimonies of evidence and support from four other 9/11 researchers which will be deployed to bolster to Tony’s defence:

  • Richard Gage, AIA: Founder/CEO of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth
  • Dwain Deets: Former NASA Director of Aerospace Projects
  • Erik Lawyer: Founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth
  • Jake Jacobs: Veteran US airline pilot and member of Pilots for 9/11 Truth

The evidence about 9/11 that will be presented by the various individuals above has rarely, if ever, been seen in any court of law in the United Kingdom, so this court case represents a unique and valuable opportunity for the 9/11 Truth movement.

We encourage all AE911Truth supporters and petition signers in the UK to attend this court hearing – the more the better. An outpouring of support will strengthen the message that the 9/11 truth movement needs to be heard and that there needs to be a new and independent 9/11 investigation.

The date and location of the hearing are as follows:

February 25th at 10:00 am

Horsham Magistrates’ Court [Court 3]
The Law Courts
Hurst Road
West Sussex
RH12 2ET

Six-month-old Muhannad Al-Zaben is already a celebrity among Palestinians, the so-called “Freedom Ambassador”. He is the result of smuggled sperm his father Ammar transferred to his mother Dalal during a prison visit in 2006. Now a Palestinian fertility specialist says four other Palestinian women have become pregnant using similar secret methods, as security prisoners and their wives find a way to become parents while the father is still behind bars.
Faced with a ban against conjugal visits, the prisoners, accused of attacks against Israelis, and their wives were forced to come up with a solution if they wanted to have a family. At a press conference in Nablus this week, the head of the Razan Infertility Center Doctor Salim Abu Khaizaran said “Muhammad is a turning point in the lives of Palestinian detainees. I receive daily calls from detainees’ families asking us to do it.”
Indeed there are more that 40 detainees’ sperm samples at the center. He said many of the wives are awaiting results or a turn for the wives to be inseminated.
Sources told The Media Line the samples were delivered in a secure way to ensure that they belong to the husband, while doctors said the sperm was sneaked out in a complicated process they don’t want to expose.
Israeli officials cast doubt on the veracity of the Palestinian claims.
“The prison service id doubtful about the women’s technical ability to smuggle sperm and then use it as it is being claimed,” Sivan Wayzman, the Israeli spokeswoman of the Prison Service told The Media Line. “There are limitations on prisoners and security procedures surrounding the visit.

She said that husbands and wives are not allowed any physical contact during the 45-minute visit. Only in the last ten minutes are children under age 8 allowed to physically touch their fathers. She also said the women travel on Red Cross buses for several hours, and sperm must be frozen quickly if it is to remain viable.
In contrast, Wayzman said, Jewish prisoners are allowed conjugal visits “every few weeks.” In cases where conjugal visits are not permitted, inmates may father a child by Invitro fertilization.
Al-Zaben’s dream of a child was six years in the making, coming true when she became the first Palestinian woman to deliver a baby this way. The sperm of her husband Ammar, serving 27 life sentences for charges of being affiliated with Hamas, was smuggled out of prison in 2006, and doctors froze the sample.
“My husband’s brother died, and his two sisters got married. Me, my daughters and sisters-in-law didn’t have any men to take care of us,” the happy mother told The Media Line. The couple had two teenage daughters before Ammar was arrested. In a blue-decorated room filled with flowers and balloons, relatives shed tears of joy as they looked at the baby Muhannad – named after a friend of Ammar’s killed by the Israeli army in 2002 – and his mother.
Ammar met his son a few weeks after his birth through a Red Cross family visit, although some prisoners are denied such visits for what Israel calls “security reasons.”
Most Palestinian prisoners’ wives decide to stay with their husbands despite knowing they might never live together as a couple. Few wives in families with children seek divorce. Staying together is seen as an act of loyalty to someone fighting for the cause, but prisoners’ families often give their daughters-in-law a choice between leaving or, if they have no children, waiting for their husbands’ release. Those who stay together seek ways to keep their marriages alive.
Such was the case with Lidia Rimawi, who told her husband about her wish to have a baby after she heard about Al-Zaben’s story. “He was surprised but asked for more time to think,” she told The Media Line.
Rimawi, 35, also heard her biological clock ticking, since she’d be in her 50s when her husband, serving a 25-year-sentence, is released. “He might be able to have children, but I won’t. In the following visit he told me he agreed,” said the mother of a 12-year-old daughter Rand, now excited she will have a sibling.
There are no religious or political stands against insemination with the smuggled sperm. In 2003, religious leaders including prominent theologian Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi said it was not against Islam if done securely, as the wife of security prisoner Abbas Al-Sayed tried to do it. Late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat and other political leaders backed the idea but her attempt failed and no others were made.
Palestinian society, on the other hand, had its concerns. What would people think if they saw a woman pregnant while her husband was in jail? The question troubled the families and doctors alike.
“At first many people were surprised and said they would ask for the opinion of religious men, but everyone was supportive,” Rimawi said of reactions to her pregnancy.
Al-Zaben also agreed to speak out about the subject at Abu Khaizaran’s request.  “The pregnant woman needs all the support she can get. Gossip and accusation of adultery could have affected the mother’s health,” Abu Khaizaran said.
Now Palestinians, believing this is a way to challenge those who imprison them, are more supportive, especially after the public backing Al-Zaben received.
To eliminate any doubts, the medical center asks for three family members from each side of the family to accompany the wife when she handles the sample and when she is fertilized.
Her ignorance caused Rimawi to lose the first sample. “I kept it in the fridge and went to the center the next day, but they told me I ruined it. Luckily I had another one and this time I brought the needed witnesses as asked,” she told the Media Line.
Meanwhile pressure continues to allow the prisoners to pass on their sperm without subterfuge. “Why do the Israeli authorities have regular prison inspection? They know you can’t seal a prison completely,” said Prisoners Club head Qaddoura Fares. Detainees’ centers statistics estimate that over 500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are serving life sentences.
It’s also not certain if Palestinians would trust Israel enough with their sperm. One prisoner’s wife told The Media Line she had received the semen directly from her husband during a visit. Speaking anonymously, she said she’d been asked to submit an application through the Israeli Authorities but refused. “How would I trust that Israel will not swap it? I preferred to do it between the two of us,” she added.
Abu Khaizaran, whose Razan center is one of the few fertility clinics in the Palestinian territories, said some 70% of the samples received were usable, but the rest were not because they were smuggled in primitive ways.

 “The success rate of artificial insemination in Palestine is usually 45%, but in these cases the rate is 35%” Abu Khaizaran said.

Then there is the tricky matter of the baby’s sex. Producing a boy in Arab society is seen as an important achievement for the marriage. Since a woman changes her family name upon marriage and can’t pass her last name to her children, males carry the family’s name for generations. Also males are seen as the breadwinners and caretakers of women in the family.
Out of 12 women inseminated via the smuggled sperm so far, four have been implanted with male embryos. “The process of choosing the child’s gender decreases the possibility of the pregnan cy’s success, but we operate in special cases. For example, if the woman is in her late thirties and already has daughters we help her, but in general we prefer not to choose the sex,” Abu Khaizaran told The Media Line.
Rimawi finds out her baby’s gender soon. “If it’s a boy I’ll name him Majd; if it’s a girl I’ll name her Shahd,” she said, adding she hopes to have more children. “Once I give birth, I will go get artificial insemination again from the frozen samples,” she said determinedly.
As Muhannad Al-Zaben’s birth continues to supply the inspiration for the sperm smuggling, Abu Khaizaran sees another important aspect of the process. “We are doing this for the women’s sake,” he said. “The detainees can conceive at any time, but the wives’ biological clocks are ticking, and we would like to help make their dream come true.”
