UPDATE: Meteor impact in Mexico 30 meters wide. By the way, 30 meters = 32.8 yards. Or 33, if you like to round..
UPDATE: 4.6 magnitude earthquake in Iran
It is February 11th and all that Iran has done is said that they have been able to enrich some uranium, but do not plan on building nuclear weapons. (But that’s exactly what a rogue regime hell-bent on the destruction of the world would say!) I wanted to share a few images of Iran with you in order to show just what a beautiful place it truly is..
This country is inhabited by the Persian people, who are trying to lead happy, fulfilling lives just like other people all over this planet..
And I would be remiss in not mentioning the beautiful Persian women out there..
We are divided by language, geography, religion, and culture, but it seems that these divisions could easily be overcome were it not for the governmental/military/industrial forces that wish to keep us separate. We are all people and we should love each other. I know it sounds simple, but that’s because it is.
We should not allow the talking heads, sociopaths, and dogs of war to decimate this country or its people. Haven’t we done enough of that in recent years?
Born in 1933, Charlie Wilson was a Congressman who funneled hundreds of millions of dollars from the taxpayers of the U.S. to the CIA and then to the Mujaheddin in Afghanistan, who then fought against the Soviet occupiers. He also wouldn’t admit or deny that he did cocaine in a Vegas hot tub with two strippers. He died yesterday at the age of 76. (oh those numbers..)
It is like I am always trying to make sure I document what’s going on because we are living in such monumental times. To understand why, one must not only look forward in time, but back as well..
(“Great Scot!” Benjamin Creme will be 88 in Dec.)
Brief synopsis of a very intricate movie series: an old white guy duped some terrorists into giving him the plutonium necessary to build a device that would travel through time.. but only after reaching 88 miles per hour.
Let’s try to see how the current events of today could relate to this numerical narrative.
“The Iranian nation, with its unity and God’s grace, will punch the arrogance (Western powers) on the 22nd of Bahman (February 11) in a way that will leave them stunned,” Khamenei, who is also Iran’s commander-in-chief, told a gathering of air force personnel.
So we have the 11th also as the 22nd. This adds up to 33. Obvious significances of these numbers – 11:11 = 22, Apollo 11, 33 degrees, etc. From today in Iranian news, Saudis carry out 33 airstrikes on Northern Yemen. While searching for images about February 11th, I came across this cartoon from last year and consider it somewhat fitting..
Do I think that this punch tomorrow will be anything severe? Possibly, but the big event could be the retaliatory measures could take place on the 44th day of the month, February 13th. Let’s take a look at Wikipedia’s history surrounding this date:

That’s obviously not a comprehensive list. If you want to find some more information concerning the importance of 44, read my blog more often! Or scroll down to “Listening” and look through til you see the Super Bowl logo (will I get sued by the NFL?)
(guess how much stamps cost)
In that post and the second radio show, I was mentioning that I had been seeing a lot of 4444 all over the place, such as a grocery bill that came out to $44.44. Well, what do you get when you add the two sides together?
In astronomy and space exploration
- The number of constellations in the sky as defined by the International Astronomical Union
- Messier object M88, a magnitude 11.0 spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices
- The New General Catalogue object NGC 88, a spiral galaxy in the constellation Phoenix, and a member of Robert’s Quartet
- Space Shuttle Mission 88 (STS-88), launched and completed in December, 1998, began the construction of the International Space Station.
- The Saros number of the solar eclipse series which began on -246 October 6 and ended on 1233 March. The duration of Saros series 88 was 1478.4 years, and it contained 83 solar eclipses. Further, the Saros number of the lunar eclipse series which began on 38 July and ended on 1336 August. The duration of Saros series 88 was 1298.1 years, and it contained 73 lunar eclipses.
- Approximately the number of days it takes Mercury to complete its orbit.
As a Neo-Nazi symbol
Eighty-eight is used as code among Neo-Nazis to identify each other. H is the 8th letter of the alphabet, so 88 is taken to stand for HH which in turn means Heil Hitler. For example, the number is used in the song “88 rock’n’roll band” by the neo-Nazi group Landser. The late convicted Order terrorist David Lane wrote “Fourteen Words” and 88 Precepts, and the numbers are often found in combination (1488, 14/88, etc.). This form of the number has inspired the naming of the groups Column 88, Unit 88, and White Legion 88.
Okay, now I have the easy task of wrapping this seeming numerical nonsense and bringing it all back together. 1988MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year that started on a Friday, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. In the 20th century, the year 1988 has the most Roman numeral digits (11). In this year, Israelis killed Palestinians, the U.S. was forced to answer questions concerning the Iran-contra affair, the Soviets began perestroika, Israel imprisoned a man for disclosing their nuclear program, the Soviet Union committed to withdrawing from Afghanistan, the winter olympics are held starting Feb 13th, the U.S. attacked Iranian oil platforms and vessels in Operation Praying Mantis, there was the 8888 uprising in Myanmar, George H.W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis, the late Benazir Bhutto became the first female Prime Minister of Pakistan, and obviously so much more. Lots of political turmoil, terrorism, government intervention, and espionage.
Now if you really want to continue down this line of thinking, investigate the number 176 (88.88). Maybe this is why I tried to stay away from numerology.. oh well.
UPDATE: China 88 Capital Corp. Announces Close of Initial Public Offering. This news is from today and well after the publication of this update. For some reason, this press release says it is not for dissemination in the United States. Whoops!
Okay, interview over. I didn’t get to ask all of the questions I wanted, but I think there was some fascinating material uncovered. Hopefully we’ll get Mr. Creme back on the program soon. Today’s show should be archived here soon..
Things to ponder before the show:
- Benjamin Creme says that the Maitreya is on earth with 14 masters – do we know any of them?
- Is sharing still “sharing” if it is compulsory?
- How did I land this interview without really trying? Does the Maitreya know who I am?
- Is Lucifer’s bad reputation undeserved?
- Is Benjamin Creme telling the truth?
- Was “Old Ben” Kenobi based on Ben Creme?
Obi-Wan, teacher of Luke.. it fits.
As long as everything goes as planned, I will be interviewing Benjamin Creme (wiki) tomorrow (2/9) at 4PM EST (link to show page). This promises to be a very exciting interview. Benjamin Creme asserts that he knows the Maitreya (Avatar, Savior). He says he already spoken to a U.S. audience and will soon be making his presence known.
I will be asking Mr. Creme about the Maitreya’s plan for the world, how he hopes to achieve it, how justice will be served, how alien intelligence ties in, what happens to those that don’t go along with the plan, and much more. If you have any questions that you would like asked or topics you think I should cover, leave a comment on this post.
