Benjamin Fulford – December 9, 2013: Behind Japan’s Prime Minister Abe and US Ambassador Kennedy’s freemason handshake

Benjamin Fulford – December 9, 2013: Behind Japan’s Prime Minister Abe and US Ambassador Kennedy’s freemason handshake

High level negotiations over starting the new financial system and restoring the Republic of the United States of America are proceeding smoothly but there are still a few cockroaches to deal with first.

A hint about how negotiations are progressing came out last week in the form of a Freemason handshake between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and US Ambassador Caroline Kennedy. Here is the picture as shown on the official web page of the office of the Prime Minister:

http://www.kantei.go.jp/foreign/96_abe/actions/201311/20kennedy_e.html

For reference, see here some pictures of freemason handshakes:

http://www.blessedquietness.com/journal/housechu/handshak.htm#.UqKrtuKzJSA

According to MI5 and books about Freemasonry, the particular handshake shown in the photo is likely to be something known as the Tubal-cain (two balled cane). The handshake has a multilayered meaning but in this case the message it seems to be conveying is likely to be in the phrase usually associated with this handshake:

The Mason must “follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.”

http://www.macquirelatory.com/rituals%20of%20freemasonry.htm

Also, according to MI5 the handshake as shown puts the Prime Minister in the ascendancy over Kennedy. There is also a sexual connotation in the two-balled cane meaning.

Furthermore, this handshake is associated with the Pagan god Vulcan. Vulcan is associated with Thunder, Lightning and Fire. In ancient times, tributes to Vulcan included human sacrifices.

Pastor Paolo Izumi, who runs the Tachikawa Church and who helped shelter a member of the Japanese self-defense forces who unwittingly participated in the March 11, 2011 nuclear and tsunami terror attack against Japan alerted this writer to the handshake and noted Japanese national TV broadcasts made a point of zooming in on it.

So, the likely interpretation to this is that the US government is showing itself to be under Asian influence as the passive partner but that it is strong and ready to sacrifice human lives if necessary.The publication of this photograph follows a week of intensive negotiations in Asia by US Vice President Biden and a visit to China by UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

A CIA source in Asia says Biden returned home from China empty-handed after begging for money. However, the official Chinese Xinhua news agency reported a whole series of deals involving the oil industry and oil extracting technology. In other words, the US government was only able to get money for keeping itself going in exchange for handing over much of its oil business. China also got promises of more US high tech and more opportunities for Chinese companies to operate inside the US.

The main sticking point is that China wants the US to start arresting the people who were behind plans to kill billions of people, notably the Neocon authors of the Project for a New American Century.

Here is what Nelson Mandela, the great man who passed away last week, had to say about the US:

“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings,” Mandela said.

http://rt.com/news/mandela-sharp-quotes-media-860/

This quote came in reaction to the Iraq invasion by George Bush Jr. who has announced he will go to Mandela’s funeral. Perhaps Bush is hoping for a Mandela inspired peace and reconciliation process instead of the death penalty he deserves. It may be too late for that.

Getting back to Asian diplomacy, the UK Prime Minister’s visit was on the surface all about business. However, Cameron was also told to start arresting UK criminals named as being behind the 311 mass murder, according to MI6 sources. Cameron also visited the central city of Chengdu with James Sassoon on undisclosed business.

The Chinese also sent an agent to visit the White Dragon Society last week. The meeting was friendly and harmonious. An agreement was reached to have complete transparency of information in communications, to promote mutually beneficial relations and to allow both sides freedom to take necessary action. If this sounds vague, that is because it is mean to be vague.

There was also communications between the P2 Freemason lodge and the White Dragon Society last week. According a P2 source, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon had promised last week to hand over $400 billion to save the Italian financial system but that he was unable to produce the money. Also, the P2 want former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconni to return $100 billion of Italian money he has hidden in offshore bank accounts.

If it is true that Ban Ki Moon no longer has access to money, that is big news. Ban Ki Moon’s name came up in the investigation of the Chiasso incident of June 2009 in which two Japanese diplomats were illegally detained and had $134.5 billion dollars’ worth of bonds stolen from them. Moon and the UN then offered the Asians $100 million in exchange for giving ending attempts to cash historical Asian bonds. The Chinese have said in the past they do not trust Moon because his words and actions show he is a cabal stooge. It looks like somebody chucked a Moon.

Also, there are signs the dollar based financial system is headed for some sort of monumental crash.

The situation is one in which impossibly large sums of debt inside the Western central bank computers hang over a world GDP only a tiny fraction of that amount. As the P2 source put it: “The algorithms are broken and it is impossible to restore the old financial system.”

The White Dragon Society has long insisted that the only solution will be to unplug the central and mega bank computers, delete all the funny money and re-input based on paper receipts.

A lobby within the military industrial complex also contacted the WDS last week insisting that China was getting too arrogant and needed to be taught a lesson. The answer given was that China is not the country that has killed tens of millions of people and been constantly at war for the past 60 years.

The best move a hardline nationalist US faction could take would be to declare bankruptcy, repudiate US foreign debt and start issuing a new government controlled currency. The problem with taking such an action is that it would then become impossible to maintain the US international military presence.

The WDS has proposed to the rest of the world that a better alternative would be to hire the US military industrial complex to do good. US special forces could then do things like protect endangered species from poachers instead of stealing oil for robber barons. The freemason handshake mentioned above may be a sign the military industrial complex agrees. In that case, it appears the ball is now in China and the BRICs alliances court.

Leaked: Pussy Riot, Greenpeace activists will be freed under amnesty — RT News

The members of the Pussy Riot punk band, Greenpeace activists and protesters jailed after the May 2012 Bolotnaya demonstration will be freed in an amnesty dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution, Russian media report.

A total of 25,000 people will be freed under the amnesty initiated by President Putin, Interfax cited Vladimir Vasilyev, deputy speaker of parliament, as saying.

“Around 1,300 people will be released from prison, and 17,500 people will be relieved of non-custodial sentences. In addition, criminal proceedings against nearly 6,000 can be terminated,” Vasilyev said.

Several Russian media outlets including Izvestia and Vedomosti newspapers have obtained a copy of the draft amnesty, which was submitted to the parliament by President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

According to the papers, the participants in such high-profile cases as the Pussy Riot Cathedral protest, Greenpeace’s Arctic Sunrise boarding of an oil rig and the Bolotnaya Square riots will all be granted amnesty.

The upcoming amnesty won’t apply to those who committed crimes that posed a serious danger to society, Vladimir Vasilyev said, adding that the amnesty will give preference to convicts in vulnerable social categories and people who have served the country.

It will favor all minors, mothers with small children, pregnant women, women over 55 and men over 60, the disabled, Chernobyl cleanup workers and military veterans, he said.

According to Vedomosti newspaper, the draft amnesty covers three articles of the criminal code “as an exception,” which means that those, who were convicted under them, will be freed or relived from punishment regardless of age, sex and social status.

The first such article Number 213 is “hooliganism”, which means that two Pussy Riot members – Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova – as well as the Greenpeace’s activists, awaiting trial in Russia, will a get pardon.

Three members of the Pussy Riot punk band were each sentenced to two years in prison after staging a protest in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral in February 2012, although one member of the band was later released on appeal.

The 30 Greenpeace activists are currently on bail and awaiting trial after an attempt to board Russia’s Prirazlomnaya oil platform in the Barents Sea this September.

The second exception stands for article 212 (parts 2 and 3) – “participation in riots and attempts to incite rioting.”

It means that nine protesters, who were detained following Moscow riots on Bolotnaya Square in May 2012, but who are not accused of using force against police, will be also freed under amnesty, according to Vedomosti.

The third exception deals with those, who were convicted for violating traffic regulation with severe consequences to people’s health.

Meanwhile, those, who committed economic crimes, won’t be pardoned as there has already been an amnesty for this category of prisoners earlier this year, with 1,431 people released, Izvestia said.

This means that former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his business partner, Platon Lebedev, will remain behind bars.

The amnesty will be adopted before the end of the year and implemented within the next six months, a high-ranked source in the parliament told Izvestia.

Russia celebrates the 20th anniversary of the country’s Constitution on December 12.

The head of the Presidential Council on Civil Society and Human Rights, Mikhail Fedotov, expressed his satisfaction with the draft amnesty bill and said hoped it wouldn’t suffer heavy revisions by the Duma deputies.

“I’m sure that there’ll be some MPs, who’ll try to widen the amnesty bill and those, who’ll push for it to be narrowed. In the end, I hope that it’ll remain as it was when submitted by the President,” he told RIA-Novosti news agency.

But one of the heads of Memorial human rights center, Oleg Orlov, has called the draft amnesty bill a disappointment.

“Even in its current form, I welcome the document. At least, some people will be released,” he told Interfax news agency. “But that part of Russian society, which advocated an amnesty, understand it in a broader sense, and of course we are disappointed.”

President Putin tasked human rights activists with putting together a draft bill for an amnesty dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the country’s modern Constitution in late September.

In mid-October, the draft bill, which proposed to pardon around 100,000 prisoners, was approved by the Presidential Council for Human Rights.

“Gimme Three Steps…”

Thank you Denise! I have noticed the same pattern in my own life in the months leading up to the summer solstice more so than the winter solstice during the same years tho also to a lesser degree in the autumn.
One positive about it is that the pressure from below sure drives our determination to make it thru whatever we have to in order to leave those unpleasant aspects of duality behind and learn/grow into the ability to transcend it all.
Thank you as always for sharing your clarity of awareness with us!

Manifesting New Directions and Opportunities

Thank you for this useful and inspiring post!

Cauldrons and Cupcakes

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau

It still amazes me how writing and visualising can create a magnetic pull in your life that attracts relationships, synchronicities and opportunities to you that are a match to your talents and intent. Writing has great power, and today’s exercise uses journal writing and visualisation as tools to help you open doors, invite opportunity and attract helpful people.

Expect answers and solutions. They often come from left field, and they often manifest themselves very quickly.  The more happy, positive and in flow you feel, the faster your solutions and opportunities will arrive. (If you’re not sure what makes you feel good, or how to get into that happy place, there is a great journal exercise and suggestions…

How to Have a Heart-Centred Year

Thank you for posting this important message. I’m sure many of you reading this can relate to this being difficult to do. Even tho having chronic illness it has been impressed upon me that I am no use to anyone else unless I take good care of myself; I still find it difficult to prioritize my actual needs.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” 
~ Gautama Buddha

I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.”
~ Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

 

I’m betting you’ve never had a year where you made yourself – your wants and needs – front and centre to the Universe.

A recurrent theme among my current retreat participants is that each year, no matter what their initial intentions, time slips away and they find themselves (once again…) putting everyone else and everyone else’s dreams and goals before themselves.

But how can this serve us?

I believe it can’t.

I’m not talking about selfishness, self-centredness and egoism. I’m talking about choosing to be good to yourself, to make room for your interests and goals, to speak up for yourself, to meet your needs, and…
