The Darkest FIFA Secrets

FIFA: For the Game. For the World... For the Money.

New 2015 FBI criminal charges from the US allege FIFA officials accepted over $150M in bribes and kickbacks. The scandal threatens to entangle major international soccer corporations such as Nike and may finally lead to the downfall of FIFA's president, Sepp Blatter. Learn about these conspiracies and more... including possible match-fixing, awards rigged to benefit the sponsors of Messi and Ronaldo, special FIFA laws that overrule constitutional rights, the 2018 Russia and 2022 Qatar World Cups being bought with bribes, and human right violations and the abuse of slave workers to build football stadiums.

What Is The Vatican Hiding In Its Archives?

No-one can enter without the express permission of the Vatican - and when they do get in, they can't even browse the shelves. Not even the Pope has access to his own archive. So what exactly is the Vatican hiding down there?

Here, bound in cream vellum, are thousands upon thousands of volumes, some more than a foot thick.
This is the Vatican secret archive, possibly the most mysterious collection of documents in the world.
Here you can find accounts of the trial of the Knights Templar held at Chinon in August 1308; a threatening note from 1246 in which Ghengis Khan’s grandson demands that Pope Innocent IV travel to Asia to ‘pay service and homage; a letter from Lucretia Borgia to Pope Alexander VI; Papal Bulls excommunicating Martin Luther; correspondence between the Court of Henry VIII and Clement VII; and an exchange of letters between Michelangelo and Paul III.
There are also letters from Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, St Bernadette, Voltaire and Abraham Lincoln.
And here too – depending on how much faith you have in the novels of Dan Brown – lies proof that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and continued their own earthly line.

This Should Not Exist: A 100-Million-Year-Old Fossilized Human Finger

The oldest human fossil is 2.8 million years old, or so tells us mainstream anthropology. But this view is challenged by a number of finds that just don’t fit, such as this fossilized human finger that is believed to be 100 million years old.

The misfit fossil was discovered in the mid-1980s by a quarry owner in a gravel pile. The gravel and the fossilized finger had been quarried from a Cretaceous limestone formation in Texas. 

Previous dinosaur fossils that had been dug up in the area showed the formation had an estimated age of around 100 million years.

Paleontologists determined that in order for soft tissue to become fossilized, the finger and its owner must have been rapidly buried in an oxygen-free environment. A flash-burial would also mean that the individual cells would mineralize individually and their microscopic details would be preserved.

If this is the case, the man to whom this finger once belonged must have suffered a violent death. Add this to the fact that fossils only form in extraordinary conditions and it was pure luck that led to this discovery.

The fossilized finger was sectioned using a diamond saw, revealing its distinctive inner structures, arranged in concentric circles.

CAT scans revealed even more clues, such as the presence of what appeared to be bones, joints and tendons inside the finger. A difference in their densities meant that they showed up as darker areas on the X-ray.

If this discovery is legitimate, it would suggest two possible scenarios: either humans have been around for far longer than we think or the past of our planet has been calculated wrong.

A third option would be the existence of time-travelers. This would certainly account for all of the mystifying out of place artifacts found all over the world.

It all leads to one question: will discoveries such as this one determine a paradigm shift at some point or will all of them turn out to be hoaxes or wrongfully-identified items?

Top 10 MYSTERIOUS Secret Societies

Top 10 Most Mysterious Secret Societies in the World including organizations, groups, and more such as the illuminati, knight's templar, and freemasons.

Blackwater: This isn't so much a secret society, but rather a private army. Actually a corporate army that is, publicly funded, but privately accountable. They offer mercenary services including infantry, navy and police enforcement to whoever will pay their price. Since they're not a government organization, they are frequently called in to help settle disputes that are too secretive or distasteful for public services to be involved with, like policing the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. 

Nine) The Order of the Skull & Bones. It's one of those upper crust Ivy League student societies dedicated to manipulating the next generation of the power elite. Oh great, another one. Is anything real anymore? They mockingly refuse membership to all without family names like Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Bush. Yeah, those Bushes. In fact, G.W., AND George Sr., AND Senator 
Eight) The Freemasons. Cloaked in secrecy, brothers of this fraternal organization are not allowed to invite new members, nor share any of their secret handshakes, passwords and strange rituals they have to perform, in order to advance in seniority within the organization. Seven) Rosicrucians. This mystic Christian fellowship was founded by a group of 8 doctors, alchemists and sages in the 1400s, in a quest to destroy the one true ring. Jokes aside…that would be cool, but instead, they actually dedicated their entire lives to providing free health care to any who needed it, and would appoint a successor to replace them after they died. Why does this sound similar to Obamacare? 
Six) Ordo Templis Orientis. The Order of the Temples of the East was originally founded as an offshoot of the Masons, kind of like the Stonecutters but without Steve Gutenberg. But it underwent radical changes when an occult magician known as the Great Beast, Aleister Crowley, took over the leadership. 
Five) Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn. This is yet another occult group that grew out of the Masonic and Rosicrucian traditions, but with a much stronger emphasis on ritual magic like spellcasting, astrology, astral travel, crystal balls and potions. A young Alistair Crowley was one of the order's most famous members before he left to really get his freak on.
Four) The Knights Templar. Founded almost a thousand years ago as a kind of highway patrol for pilgrims in the holy land, they were originally called the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ. Their emblem was of two knights riding on a single horse, emphasising the Order's poverty. 

Three) The Illuminati. As the unoffically self appointed spokesperson for the Illuminati, I am in no way whatsoever authorized to tell you, We don't really exist, so please stop asking. We are not managing the new world order through YouTube. 
Two) Opus Dei. Opus Dei is in the form of some sort of organization within the Catholic Church that may be hiding something important and according to many critics allegedly acts as, well, if they’re better than other Christians. It is claimed that they strongly emphasize the belief that "everyone is called to holiness and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity." I gotta say, that's a pretty deep statement. 
One) The Black Hand. This secret military society in the Balkans was formed in 1911 with the aim of liberating the Serbian people from Austro-Hungarian rule. Their half-baked plan was to assassinate the Archduke Franz Ferdinand (yes, like that Franz Ferdinand), who was the heir to the Austrian throne, assuming that this would initiate a war between Austria and Serbia. The first two assassination attempts with a car bomb failed to injure the Archduke and his wife and they managed to escape.

BIGGEST Mysteries of the Pyramids You've Never Heard Of

8 BIGGEST Little-Known Unsolved Mysteries of the'll be quite surprised at what you find.

Number One Eight Sided Pyramid Insanity..This is one of those facts that when stated will cause people to hate on you and attempt to pompously correct you on, but is genuinely true…like tomatoes being a fruit, that the biggest desert in the world is Antarctica, or that French people are actually quite polite. Okay, that last one was a lie, but, get this, in 1940 a British pilot discovered that each of the four sides of the Great Pyramid were actually split in two by a concave indentation, creating eight equal sides. 

Number Two Earth….Not Egypt...One thing stands out amongst Pyramid building cultures; they all possessed advanced knowledge of mathematics, astronomy and the earth’s geophysical properties. Basically they were antiquity’s greatest nerds, except without the distraction of Star Trek fan theory and Japanese tentacle porn. There are even similar looking Pyramids in Italy, Giza, China and South America, which are all themselves strikingly similar to Cambodian temples and Indonesian structures. It’s like someone just pressed copy and paste a whole bunch of times and hoped no-one would notice. 
Number Three Giant Tombs….Stamped Everywhere?....Let’s rethink that. No bodies have ever been found in the Great Pyramid or many of the thousands around South America. The absence of corpses, which is a great band name by the way, has been attributed to grave robbers and archaeologists taking anything that wasn’t nailed down. But that doesn’t explain why the Pyramids didn’t contain burial items such as the sarcophagus. 
Number Four: Their Purpose?) “Big Things Are Cool?” Some speculate they were used to store grain or valuables, but any theory that believes these amazing structures were just ancient K-marts is far too dull to explore. One interesting idea looks first at where the Pyramids were built. The Egyptians constructed the Great Pyramid in the geographical centre of the Earth along specific lines of latitude and longitude; almost perfectly oriented to the four points of the compass, facing true north more accurately than any structure built before or since. 
Number Five: Secret Rooms and Passageways so Unexplored I’m Furious.) Beneath the Sphinx and within the Great Pyramid sonar and radar technology has uncovered a few ancient secrets. They are believed to contain many small passages which have lain untouched by man, making them the exact opposite of Miley Cyrus. So far we have only uncovered a few of these, yet it seems strange that such a vast building would be used to house only a few small corridors and tombs. What is interesting is the lack of willingness from the Egyptians to explore these areas. 
Number Six: Too Many Commonalities) Not only were the Pyramids in South America built in the same way and style as those in Egypt, but many utilised identical measurement systems, and as we’ve already discussed they lay on important lines of latitude and longitude. Is it out of the realms of possibility that one particular culture wanted to spread their ideas facr and wide? Traversing the endless oceans of the globe to spread the word of their one true god? 
Number Seven: Ancient Pyramid Building Civilizations Interacted?) There are many theories regarding contact between old and new worlds pre-Columbus. 
Number Eight: Extraterrestrial Pyramid Party?) Both the Mayan and Egyptian cultures record gods coming down from the sky to give them instructions to build the pyramids. But many cultures claim such meetings with deities and spirits, in fact my local quack preacher claims to shake hands with the lord every time you give him ten dollars…joking aside…he’s basing even THAT claim on how God in the bible came down from the sky and gave man instructions….and let me ask you a question…what comes down from the sky thousands of years before the Wright Brothers were even born…..what...birds….rain? So…what other theories support an extra-terrestrial influence? Perhaps we have to look at the sudden growth in development of Pyramid building cultures. In both Bosnia and Sian in China, large pyramid structures have been discovered which were originally believed to be hills. We already know that the ancient Chinese were intellectually advanced at the time, and guess what…so were the Illerian people of pre-historical Bosnia. The Egyptians, The Mayans, The Chinese…every civilization with a history of Pyramid building has been more knowledgeable and innovative than their contemporaries. Is it always the case that the most intelligent people build these giant desert triangles just for fun?

UFO Absorbing Water From California Lake

An incredible sighting that occurred last week in Nevada County has had ufologists all worked up and for good reason; if this photo is genuine, it might explain why our planet is regularly visited by alien spacecraft.

Although water in outer space is not as scarce as was once thought, it’s not as readily available as it is on Earth. Perhaps the presence of liquid water is what draws aliens to our planet.

Last Friday, a pilot and amateur photographer from California snapped this unbelievable photo showing an unidentified object hovering over Scotts Flat Lake in Nevada County, CA.

The pilot, who chose to remain anonymous, said that the UFO appeared to be sucking water out of the lake.

Intrigued by the occurrence, the pilot tried to establish radio communication with the mysterious craft but was met with silence.

“As you can see from the picture, I was on my final approach to the Nevada County Airport when I spotted this red object. Then I noticed this ‘water beam’ underneath it. It kinda looked like a long, clear straw. So I radioed it to let them know I was around and they did not return my request, which is highly unusual,” the pilot told a local newspaper.

Does the fact that this sighting was reported by a pilot increase its credibility? Perhaps. But it certainly offers no clues regarding the UFO’s mission and intentions.

“Holy cow! Finally proof they’re using the Black Knight Satellite to coordinate their mass visit,” said paranormal investigator Keith Bradenshauer.

“I’m not going to say they’re here to steal our water, but they certainly aren’t asking permission to take it,” he added.

For all we know, they might be doing their best to worsen the drought in California.

Fantastic Zoomorphic Stone at Chichen Itza - Explorer Alfred Percival Maudslay, 1883.

Note that the far right end of stone is like a fish head with a flipper or arm just behind it. Around the world there are ancient carvings of God like creatures in the shape or form of fish/animal. Could all these very different ancient cultures be of the same creature that they perceived as a god in very ancient times? 

Alfred Percival Maudslay (18 March 1850 – 22 January 1931) was a British colonial diplomat, explorer and archaeologist. He was one of the first Europeans to study Maya ruins.

Alfred Maudslay explored Chichén in the 1880s and both spent several weeks at the site and took extensive photographs. Maudslay published the first long-form description of Chichen Itza in his book, "Biologia Centrali-Americana". In the course of his surveys, Maudslay pioneered many of the later archaeological techniques. He hired Italian expert Lorenzo Giuntini and technicians to make plaster casts of the carvings, while Gorgonio López made casts of papier-mâché. Artist Annie Hunter drew impressions of the casts before they were shipped to museums in England and the United States. Maudslay also took numerous detailed photographs – dry plate photography was then a new technique – and made copies of the inscriptions.

Actually just got done watching your piece with Robert Bingham where you spot that pipe sticking up out the water. So I did that looking in the sky thing and mentally saying please come; 5-10 mins later look what I just filmed!!! I thought it was a balloon at fist until it moved strangely, it looked exactly like some dude crouched down flying above the buildings outside my window... Where this clip ends I jump up from my desk grab my binoculars and the 4 or so seconds I still had it in view, I would swear it was almost crawling through the air with muscular movements.."

Real Ghost Caught on Tape in Haunted Store

Ghost videos caught on tape: May 2010 my bookstore's alarm stroke twice within a week...a scary ghost video is what I discovered and I decided to share it with you...

Let US Make Man in OUR Image – Who is ‘US’ and ‘OUR’?

Have you ever wondered who ‘us’ and ‘our’ refers to in Genesis 1:26 when it says, ‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness’?

Kendra Gilbert and I interviewed theologian, astrotheologist and extraterrestrial researcher Jordan Maxwell on In5D Radio and talked about this subject.

Maxwell stated the following:

“What is being said that is “somebody”… the “gods”, whoever that is…  they see the indigenous creatures that we call hominid creatures who have been here for thousands of years… and they said, “Come let US…” whoever “us” is… “Let us make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness. Not make man… he’s already here, but let us make him in OUR image, after OUR likeness.  

“So then they tampered with the DNA in the indigenous creatures that we call hominids and they create a new kind of creature. Now we begin to look like our Creators. We look like the Gods. They don’t look like us, we look like them because they said, “Come let us make man in our image, after our likeness”.  

“What’s being said in the bible may be very true… that we look like our Creators. If that’s the case, then who’s to say that they’re still not here?  You just see them as humans but they’re not human. They very well could be the Anunnaki, that’s what they look like. They look like us, they look like humans.  

“No, actually we look like them and so they could be leading us right now, today and we wouldn’t know it. We just look at them as our political leaders (and) our religious leaders, never for a moment realizing, “No, they are not human.” That’s why they can do what they do.  

“The basis for their power, they say that they have a “Divine Right” of kings. Well, maybe they do have a “Divine Right”? They are the Anunnaki. They are the ones who created you. You look like them.”

Go to the 1:17:27 marker of this video:

The following is an excerpt from Pentagon Secret – The Anunnaki Are Returning:

Gold Slaves
“In the Sumerian tale, Enki disobeyed his father, Anu, and loved the human creations.  Enki and Anu have been at war ever since this betrayal.  Anu was one of the “creator gods” who manipulated our DNA to make us slave workers who would mine the gold on this planet for the Anunnaki. 

“This is most likely the reason why the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) is in possession of so much gold. According to one source, it is estimated that the RCC owns 60,350 metric tonnes of gold.

“If you look at the pyramid on the back of the US Dollar, you will see an “all seeing eye”.  Is it possible that the entity (or entities) at the top of the pyramid are the Anunnaki and have kept us as economic slaves for thousands of years?”

Extraterrestrial Bloodlines?

Ask yourself this:  What do the following people all have in common?  

King Henry Ist, II, and III, Mary Stuart and the Stuart Dynasty, including King James I of England, sponsor of the King James version of the Bible; King George I, II, and III; Edward I, II, and III, Queen Victoria; Edward VII; George V and VI; Queen Elizabeth II; Prince Charles and Elizabeth’s other offspring, Anne, Andrew and Edward; Princes William and Harry, George Washington, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and George Bush, George W. Bush Jr., and Jeb Bush.

They all came from the same bloodlines.

One must also ask themselves about the importance of why these specific bloodlines needed to stay within their own circle as well as how they all have kept humanity suppressed while they build wealth

Why is there so much ethnic diversity on our planet?

If the Anunnaki created one slave race, then why is there so much ethnic diversity on our planet?

One answer may be found with this excerpt from Starseeds and Our Human Origins:

“Zecharia Sitchin believes our DNA was genetically manipulated, which remains a possibility, but why would the Annunaki create various ethnicities instead of one slave race?

“That leads us to another, more feasible, possibility. We were seeded here from various star nations. In this premise, genetic and ethnic diversity is explained. It also covers the differences in our blood types, such as Rh negative, Rh positive, A, B, AB and O blood types.  

“Perhaps some star nations have people with predominantly red hair and freckles while others have dark skinned inhabitants?  Maybe some, such as the Pleiadians, have blonde hair and blue eyes?

“It’s also possible that Sitchin’s premise is correct, while other star nations ALSO seeded the planet with their genetic offspring.”

Economic Subservience

As it turns out, we are ALL economic slaves in this current system of subservience, control and conformity. Is this the way it’s supposed to be?

It seems that many unawakened people are basically content being economic slaves to a system of tyranny and oppression and will not even question why they need to “work”. Because everyone else either has a job or is looking for one, they think that this is the way it should be.

“If a UFO were to land in your backyard, there are 2 things the extraterrestrial would not have: Money and a Bible.” — Gregg Prescott, M.S.

One question I often ask people is this:  “If a UFO were to land in your backyard, do you think the extraterrestrial would have money or a bible?”  I seriously doubt it.  Why?  Because most advanced civilizations have moved beyond religion and economic subservience.

Excerpt from Pentagon Secret – The Anunnaki Are Returning:

“The King James version of the Bible was edited by Sir Francis Bacon, who was a 33rd degree Freemason. At this level of freemasonry, there is a motto of “ordo ab chao” which means “order out of chaos”. The bible ends in chaos with the chapter called Revelation.”

Religion boils down to subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government.  If the “us” and “our” refers to the Anunnaki, then is it possible that both religion and government (both conventional and shadow governments) are controlled by the Anunnaki? 

Is it possible that the Anunnaki are the “All seeing eye” at the top of the pyramid?  Could THEY be the “shadow government”?

Who's REALLY at the Top of the Pyramid? The Anunnaki Connection

The Ancient Egyptian civilization, thousands of years older than previously thought

Is it possible that the Great Pyramids of Giza are over 7000 years old?
It looks like an Ostrich egg is questioning the age of the Pyramids of Giza postulated by mainstream archaeology.
Some evidence casts doubt on the actual chronology of Egyptian pharaohs. The Turin King List, also known as the Turin Royal Canon, raises many questions that science does not seem to accept. Despite attempts at reconstruction, approximately 50% of the papyrus remains missing. This papyrus as presently constituted is 1.7 m long and 0.41 m wide, broken into over 160 fragments.
The Egyptian hieratic papyrus thought to date from the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II contradicts the established dates and chronologies on the Egyptian world. Researchers are coming across great amount of information which suggests that Egypt is much older than what archaeology and history are telling us.
The Turin King List is currently located over 3000 kilometers from the land of the Pharaohs, deposited in the Egyptian museum in Turin, Italy. It was discovered in 1822 by Bernardino Drovetti in the ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes. The list was translated by Jean-François Champollion, known primarily as the decipherer of the Egyptian hieroglyphs and a founding figure in the field of Egyptology. Even though the The Turin King List has numerous historical details, modern-day archaeology has chosen to ignore it.

The Shemsu Hor

Accordion to the Turin King List, Egypt was ruled by beings -half man, half gods who received the name or title of Shems Hor (the "companions of Horus"). The 1.7 meter long list tells a different story than that accepted by mainstream Egyptologists. The Turin King list points to the fact that the first government in the Nile Valley was not that of Pharaoh Menes 5000 years ago as archaeology believes, but around 11,000 years ago. This revolutionary king list appears ratified largely by another story equally despised by archaeologists: The texts of Manetho dating back to 240 BC. Manetho, who was a priest of the sun-god Ra at Heliopolis was commissioned by Pharaoh Ptolemy II to write the history of Egypt from the beginning. According to Manetho, before Menes, the first pharaohs of the First Dynasty, Egypt was ruled by a demigods for thousands of years. The Greco-Egyptian high priest does not mention the Hor Shems like The Turin King list, but the coincidence is incredible.
There are more artifacts that suggest the history of Egypt is wrong. A Orstrich egg deposited in the Museum of Nubia, south of Egypt suggests ancient Egypt is older than we are told by history and archaeology. The discovery was made by English archaeologist, Mallaby Cecil Firth in 1907. The egg, painted and deposited in the tomb, had several different drawings on its surface, on one side it had depictions of plants and ostriches while on the other side, an impossible scenery: The Great Pyramids of Giza.

This discovery is incredible just because of the depiction of the pyramids. Why? Because according to researchers, the human remains found at tomb 96 where the Ostrich egg was found date back to the Nagada I culture; 7000 years ago. This is something impossible since Archaeology and history tell us that the pyramids at the Giza plateau are around 4.500 years old.
So who is wrong? Ancient texts and depictions of the pyramids that date back thousands of years ago? Or archaeologists and historians who firmly hang onto their beliefs?

WOW! UFO Lands On The Ceres (NEW VIDEO)

Watch also


NASA's Dawn spacecraft has provided an even closer look at the bright spots on the surface of the dwarf planet Ceres — but the origins of the spots are still subject to debate. 

The latest view, released Wednesday, shows the flashes of sunlight reflected by the spots inside a 57-mile-wide (90-kilometer-wide) crater as Dawn flew within 4,500 miles (7,200 kilometers) of Ceres on May 16. There's one big spot with a smattering of smaller spots off to the right. The picture also shows that Ceres' surface is covered with scads of craters and channels. 

Ceres has a diameter of 590 miles (950 kilometers), which makes it the largest object in the main asteroid belt as well as the smallest known dwarf planet. Dawn began orbiting Ceres in March after making a three-year trek from the asteroid Vesta, the second most massive asteroid. 

Scientists have long suspected that Ceres held reservoirs of water ice — and the leading hypothesis is that the bright spots consist of ice. Last year, scientists associated with the European Space Agency's Herschel mission said they detected a plume of water vapor rising from Ceres' surface. 

"We have looked for a plume, and thus far, we have not found it," UCLA astronomer Christopher Russell, the Dawn mission's principal investigator, told NBC News in an email. "But we have these bright spots that have the reflectivity of ice, and whose spectrum of reflected light is similar to that expected from ice.
