I would like to firstly dedicate this blog to the late Rik Clay and his work on the London Olympics research and his 4 hour interview on Red Ice Creations. I would like to thank Henrik Palmgren and all the people who work at Red Ice Creations who have been keeping everyone updated with the recent follow ups on the London Olympics.

Also many thanks to Jordan Maxwell, William Henry, Stewart Swerdlow, Bob Schlenker, Chad Stuemke, Ian Crane and David Icke and all the journalists and researchers who have been taking the time to research the subject which has inspired let me piece together this blog. I wish not to take any credit for this blog personally for I have only put my slant to the subject. The reason I made this blog was because the information on the London Olympics wasn’t placed into one website or page that was easily accessible for the public.  Please don’t take this information at ‘face value’, I certainly don’t. Remember it’s simply outlandish conjecture but wither the theories and conspiracies come true in the next coming weeks, only time will tell.

If you are not aware of the Illuminati and New World Order agenda that is upon us in our daily lives, then I advise you to look into this subject in your own time. Much of this information revolves around the whole subject of bringing about a New World Order, a One World dictatorship and a global governance. I will place some valuable links at the bottom of the article that I wish everyone to follow up and bring to light their own opinions and research on the Olympics.

The ancient Olympic Games were primarily a part of a religious festival in honor of Zeus, the father of the Greek gods and goddesses. The festival and the games were held in Olympia, a rural sanctuary site (model shown here, courtesy of the British Museum) in the western Peloponnesos.

The Greeks that came to the Sanctuary of Zeus at Olympia shared the same religious beliefs and spoke the same language. The athletes were all male citizens of the city-states from every corner of the Greek world, coming from as far away as Iberia (Spain) in the west and the Black Sea (Turkey) in the east.

The sanctuary was named in antiquity after Mt. Olympos, the highest mountain in mainland Greece. In Greek mythology, Mt. Olympos was the home of the greatest of the Greek gods and goddesses.

The ancient Olympic Games began in the year 776 BC, when Koroibos, a cook from the nearby city of Elis, won the stadion race, a foot race 600 feet long. The stadion track at Olympia is shown here. According to some literary traditions, this was the only athletic event of the games for the first 13 Olympic festivals or until 724 BC. From 776 BC, the Games were held in Olympia every four years for almost 12 centuries.

Contrary evidence, both literary and archaeological, suggests that the games may have existed at Olympia much earlier than this date, perhaps as early as the 10th or 9th century BC.

To the Greeks it was important to root the Olympic Games in mythology.[2] During the time of the ancient Games their origins were attributed to the gods, and competing legends persisted as to who actually was responsible for the Games’ genesis.[3] These origin of traditions have become nearly impossible to untangle, yet a chronology and patterns have arisen that help people understand the story behind the Games.[4] The earliest myths regarding the origin of the Games are recounted by the Greek historian, Pausanias. According to the story, the dactyl Herakles (not to be confused with the son of Zeus) and two of his brothers raced at Olympia. He crowned the victor with a laurel wreath, which explains the traditional prize given to Olympic champions.[5][6] The other Olympian gods (so named because they lived permanently on Mount Olympus), would also engage in wrestling, jumping and running contests.[7] Another myth, this one occurring after the aforementioned myth, is attributed to Pindar. He claims the festival at Olympia involved Pelops, king of Olympia and eponymous hero of the Peloponnesus, and Herakles, the son of Zeus. The story goes that after completing his labors, Herakles established an athletic festival to honor his father. Pelops, using trickery, and the help of Poseidon, won a chariot race against a local king and claimed the king’s daughter, Hippodamia as his prize.[8] A final myth, also attributed to Pausanias is dated by the historian at 776 BC.[9] For some reason the Games of previous millennia were discontinued and then revived by Lycurgus of SpartaIphitos of Elis, and Cleoisthenes of Pisa at the behest of the Oracle of Delphi who claimed that the people had strayed from the gods, which had caused a plague and constant war. Restoration of the Games would end the plague, usher in a time of peace, and signal a return to a more traditional lifestyle.[10] The patterns that emerge from these myths are that the Greeks believed the Games had their roots in religion, that athletic competition was tied to worship of the gods, and the revival of the ancient Games was intended to bring peace, harmony and a return to the origins of Greek life.[11] Since these myths were documented by historians like Pausanias, who lived during the reign of Marcus Aurelius in the 160s AD, it is likely that these stories are more fable than fact. 

The modern Olympics are very much based on the ancient Olympic games, the mythology still plays an important part in the ceremonies today, just as much as it did in ancient times. We are still today worshiping the gods through the symbolic rituals of the Olympic games. We have echos throughout history of religious groups and secret societies all worshiping these gods and passing down a mystical, occult knowledge involving spiritual philosophy and the knowledge of the paranormal, alchemy, magic and the supernatural. These people have a huge influence in history and in today’s politics and social power structure, they have been putting into place a secret plan based upon their beliefs and knowledge handed down to them in covert ways. I will show how I believe this event is in many ways being used to not only influence the public’s unconscious mind through symbolism but for them to create a certain type of energy throughout the world. An energy that will resonate for a long time, an energy that is dark and satanic.

Millions of money is spent into setting up the games and a huge amount of human energy, physical, spiritual and mental all focusing of a four week event that takes place every four years. The build up to the games is astronomical and every since London, England was announced as the host for the games, we were hypnotized with the message that this event will be the biggest, most spectacular and important event for our lifetime and for the country and possibly even the world’s history. But sit back and think, just ask yourself why? When all the wars, poverty, energy and financial crisis, political and social disputes and humanity on the brink of creating it’s own extinction. With all our troubles and the need for a huge change in the way we live our lives and embrace an empathic civilization. Why a great proportion of the world all come together to, what most people see this as, a celebration of our nations greatest athletics in the world; all competing for an ounce of gold, silver and bronze. (I thought that’s what we had wars for in history, to compete for these resources, however now we are symbolically focusing our energy into this huge event).
London seems like a random choice when it comes to hosting the venue for the games, however through the research of many people, I would like to show you how this is not the case. Could it possibly be that this event has been planned for decades and moreover centuries. If so by whom?
The Olympics are a symbolic ritual played out to worship the god Zeus, however what are these symbols, what do they mean and why are they there?
What might we expect from this event and how might this effect us in our daily lives? These are but some of the most important questions I wish for you to consider as I hope to untangled this labyrinth of a spiders web. To show you what could possibly be just a simple, harmless sporting event. Or a religious ancient ritual, made to control the minds of the masses across the globe, or even been made to manifest a fall scale false flag terrorism event, made to unleash upon the world a global governance for the agenda for the New World Order and the Illuminati.

Symbology Of The Number 11 (11:11)
The number 11 frequently appared in the studies of Rik Clay while doing his research on the Olympics. It is therefore my duty to present to you his research on this number. Later on I’ll present to you my importance to the number 12 and how I think that on the 12th August 2012 there will be an event that shapes London, England and the world. Hence forth the human consciousness. Please keep in mind what I have talked about as regards the symbology and mind control of the elite and question, what is chance?

The facts:
11: In the Universe
* On 11th August 1999 at 11:11am there was a total solar eclipse observed throughout Europe
* 21st December 2012 at 11:11am is the winter solstice of the final day of the Mayan calendar
* The current astrological sign of the zodiac is Pisces, we are currently moving into Aquarius – the 11th sign of the zodiac
* 21st December 2012 = 21/12/2012 = 2+1+1+2+2+0+1+2 = 11
* The sunspot cycle lasts 11 years – the next one peaking in 2012.

11: Pyramid Numerology
* 11:11 x 11:11 = 1234321 (Numerical sequence ascending and descending in the fashion of a pyramid)
* 111 x 111 = 12321 (Pyramid number)

* 11 x 11 = 121 (Another pyramid number)
* 11 = 3 in binary arithmetic. 3 makes the cornerstones of the Trinity or pyramid

11: 9/11
* The World Trade Centre stood like an ’11’
* 9 + 1 + 1 = 11
* September 11th is the 254th day of the year. 2+5+4 = 11
* September 11th was and is 111 days until the end of the year
* The 1st plane to hit the World Trade Centre was ‘Flight 11′
* Total crew on Flight 11 was ’11’
* New York is the 11th state of the US Constitution
* September 11th 2001 stands ’11’ years from 2012 (Note that in the Mayan calendar, it was said that there would be 20 years of ‘no-time’. A period of unrest where the planet is making a transition from one age to another. 9/11 stood 9 years from the start of this ‘no-time’ and 11 years from the end.)
* The World Trade Centre was built between 1966 to 1977… taking 11 years

11: September 11th In History
* On September 11th 1990 at 9.09PM, 11 years prior to September 11th 2001, George Bush Senior made a speech to Congress entitled “Toward A New World Order”:
Just google george bush senior new world order and you should find it.

“A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge.”

* On September 11th 1941, 60 years prior to September 11th 2001, the soil was broken and the foundations set for “The Pentagon” in Washington DC
* A book written in 1981, 20 years prior to the 2001 attacks, called “The Birth of Christ Recalculated”. The author, Dr. Ernest L. Martin, claims to have calculated the exact date of Jesus Christ’s birth based on the celestial charts for that era. The date of Christ’s birth, based on the famous Star of Bethlehem, is calculated to be September 11, 3 B.C.
* According to Hebrew Scriptures September 11, 1999 was the 6,000th anniversary of Adam’s creation, and year 1 on the Hebrew calendar

11: Significant Days
* Remembrance Day – Two minutes of silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11:00 am, 11 November), supposedly marking the time (in the United Kingdom) when armistice became effective. 11: Significant Events
* The first NASA space mission to successful land two men on the moon was Apollo 11
* Hurricane Katrina was recorded as “Storm #11”. Hurricane Katrina’s wikipedia page states:

On August 28, 11 counties and eleven cities issued evacuation orders, a number which increased to 41 counties and 61 cities by the following morning

To coincide, NASA’s Hurricane Katrina page states: “The storm formed late on August 23 and developed quickly into a tropical storm by 11 a.m. the next morning.”

* Uri Geller stopped Big Ben at 11.11 AM GMT 30th April 1997 (a hoax in my opinion, but feel free to research)

11: Royalty

* A google search into the etymology of the word “crown” establishes it was derived from the Anglo-French word “coroune” in the year 1111.

“1111, from Anglo-Fr. coroune, from O.Fr. corone, from L. corona “crown””

11: Religion
* Jesus Christ = 11 letters

11: Sport
* There are 11 players in a football team. The two sides of the football game becomes 11:11.
* There are 11 players in a cricket team. Again, 11:11.

11: A summary
The number 11 finds itself embedded in the very fabric of existence. Observed in both the heavens and in the workings of shadowy world rulers, there are three schools of thought as to how this could be:
The first points towards a series of ‘inevitable events’ deep rooted in the fabric of material existence. Fate so to speak and that the universe is playing out its script. I am not saying that one force (God or Devil, Man or Woman) could have made such things happen. More likely the elite take their symbolic meaning off of the fabric of the universe and place them, hidden in plain sight.
* The second speculates that ‘the powers that be’ have realised the significance of the number 11 in our ancient past and hijacked it for their own gain.
* The third leads to an assumption that the pyramid builders, are the same people in control today, and have used the number 11 symbolically throughout recorded history.
Could it be that this ‘intelligence’ at work, created the solar system (so as to explain the connections between the number 11 and the universe) or is it simply working to a universal numerical code?

The above information is all based on published fact, without even going into my own experiences with the numbers 11:11. At first I held my own reservations about the significance of the number 11, until I found it work itself into my life. Most, if not all of my knowledge and research in this blog, found its way into my life through moments where I’ve see an 11:11 on a digital clock, on the microwave or on the TV. Of late, these have taken a new form, including full blown audible 11:11’s from random members of the general public and arrangements of seemingly random objects forming something greater than just coincidence. 11:11 has come to signify a change in consciousness or at least the exposure of a new reality. Puzzling to say the least, but exciting – definitely!

16/07/2012 and it’s 11 days to go until the London Olympics start. It is also the day that the athlete’s and the officials have started to arrive for the Olympics. However what shocked me a little, and I even learnt a few facts about London that I didn’t know. Today it was annouced the details of the route through the 33 boroughs of London. Now London actually only has 32 boroughs however the extra 33rd is the City of London which is what we know as central London, this is the original settlement that London expanded from. (When I have time I will write a blog about how the Great fire of London was orchestrated in put in the very infrastructure and design a plan to make London a ‘New Jerusalem’ which you have seen some evidence so far however the evidence goes deeper that just pointing at road maps.)

33 is the number the Freemasons use that is the highest degree that you can achieve in the order, they have to swear their alliance to the organization. It just so happens that there are 33 different types of sports for the Olympic games taking place, coincidence, who knows. Please read the link below about the Significance of the number. 33 means a lot to the ‘powers that be’ and it’s not just coincidence that the number resonates throughout history and even the Olympics. However the symbolism involved in the event is showing a touch illuminating its light through the whole of London.
But not only that don’t consider what might be happening on a much deeper level; now to start with I need you to understand the history and symbolism involved in the torch.

London Olympics 2012 : Zion (The New Jerusalem)
When the logo for the London Olympics was unveiled in June 2007 at the cost of £400,000 there was significant public uproar due to both the cost and how terrible it looked.

Despite public pressure, the International Olympic Committee stood fast on keeping the
logo, with no flexibility. In other words, this particular logo was very important. Why?
There are many interpretations spread about the net, all intended to dissolve the true
symbolic meaning behind the logo. It has been claimed to look like a swastika, a runner and even Lisa Simpson but these are all ridiculous diversions.
On first glance you can easily make out the numbers 2012, but why the random ‘dot’?
Here’s why…

London Olympics 2012 : Zion : Street Plan
The streets around the 11 mile Olympic site hold some very interesting facts that when drawing the dots close enough together you might see a comparason I am making. Here’s a map and satellite view of the Olympics 2012 Site. Zoom in and take a look:

Stratford in London, is to become host to the Olympic village, which is undergoing massive regeneration due to the project. The site was claimed to be the last area of suitable waste land in London. Pretty lucky eh? Or maybe it was left alone for years for this very reason! I choose the latter.
And so… to the point. Take a look at the Olympic site with the Google Maps road view. On a first glance it looks like any other map view, but persevere… take a closer look at the road names:

You will find that the entire site of the Olympic Village is surrounded by somewhat biblical and mystical road names. The New Jerusalem you ask?

The Roads
1. East Cross Route (actually the A12 or A’20’12) : ref. “The Eastern Cross”

The Eastern Orthodox cross (also known as Crux Orthodoxa, the Byzantine cross, the
Eastern cross, and the “Russian” cross) can be considered a modified version of the
Patriarchal cross, having two smaller crossbeams, one at the top and one near the bottom, in addition to the longer crossbeam. Notice how the East Cross Route is also an A road – numbered A12. Given the UK has hundreds of A roads, what’s the likelihood that of all roads, the A’20’12 intersects the Olympic site?
Pause for a second and think about the shape of the letter A… yes it’s a pyramid with a capstone. So symbolically the only major road which ‘crosses’ the Olympic site, is the A(Pyramid) (20)12

2. Carpenter’s Road : ref. “Joseph”

Joseph’s profession is described in the Gospels as a τεκτων, a Greek word for a variety of skilled craftsmen, but Christian tradition has him as a “carpenter”.

3. Great Eastern Road : ref. Eastern Star
The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world that both men and women can join. It was established in 1850 by Rob Morris, a lawyer and educator who had been an official with the Freemasons.

As you can see the emblem for the “Order Of The Eastern Star” is a pentagram – similar to that found on the UK Passport. An acknowledgement of the pagan deity Satan /
4. Angel Lane : ref. Angel Gabriel / The Holy Spirit

Angels visit Joseph and Mary. Angels announced Christ’s birth to Mary and Joseph. The angel Gabriel visited Mary in Nazareth. She was engaged to Joseph. Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to the Son of God. Mary was a virgin. Gabriel told her God’s power would make the conception possible. Gabriel said, “Nothing will be impossible with God”.

5. Temple Mills Lane

Temple Mills were water mills belonging to the Knights Templar – “The Poor Fellow- Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon”.

Church Road (Update)
Although not shown on the above map (but please do look in Google), the road on the north east perimeter of the complex takes it’s name from the Christian place of worship, a church

The Location – Ley Lines

The Olympics 2012 site is situated between Leyton and Leytonestone. The “Ley” found in their names originates from the term ‘Ley lines’.

For those who are in the dark: Ley lines, or Leys, are alignments of ancient sites stretching across the landscape. Ancient sites or holy places may be situated in a straight line ranging from one or two to several miles in length. A ley may be identified simply by an aligned placing of marker sites, or it might be visible on the ground for all or part of its length by the remnants of an old straight track.

Our ancestors knew that ley lines, earth grids and vortexes were energy sources and centers that were to be considered holy. A “Ley Line” is one a number of lines which form part of an energy grid which cross the Earth. The energy – metaphysical in nature. So is there any documentary proof that ‘Ley lines’ cross near Leyton and Leytonestone? You bet there is…

The bender site, and the old yew tree in it, were the short-lived heart of Leytonstonia, decorated with a kerb-henge, a replica of Stonehenge made with kerbstones. (Some talked of the significance of the names Leyton and Leytonstone, of their relation to ley lines more generally, as though this might explain the energy of the protest sites. A brickhenge was made at Clarement Road, halfway between Leyton and Leytonstone.) The Olympics site lies in an area synonymous with mystical – metaphysical – earth energy.

Is this yet another coincidence or part of a plan for the 2012 Olympics which was put into motion way before the event was officially finalised?

It seems the Olympics 2012 site was picked for reasons which go far beyond that of ‘spare waste land’.
The roads which encompass the site, contain biblical and Masonic references, lying dormant for years, as if to become part of some majestic ritual.

And if that wasn’t enough, a new construction intersecting ‘Angel Lane’ looks to be forming a grand procession. In the BBC interview “It will be a lasting legacy” with Jean Pickering, the former Olympic bronze medallist was quoted as saying: I remember running along Angel Lane to get the train to work and hearing all the market stall holders cheering me on.
That’s true East End spirit.
References to ‘lasting legacy’, ‘Angel Lane’, and ‘true spirit’ sound ominous to me, given our ‘Zion’ street map. Britain’s spiritual landmarks –


Glastonbury Tor

and Avebury,

all rest upon ‘ley lines’ (areas of intense earth energy). Could it be any more bewildering that they have chosen such a site for our Olympic games? And that it just so happened to be vacant for the occasion? To close I would like to end with a reference from the Bible. Note the chapter and verse numbers.

Mark 11:11
“Then Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple and looked around at everything. Since it was already late, he went out with his twelve disciples to Bethany. ”

At 11:11, Jesus enters Jerusalem, or should that be the New Jerusalem – Zion!

William Blake
I would like to introduce to you the famous poem by William Blake.

“And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.”

An 18th century writer, artist and esotericist, William Blake’s poem was inspired by the apocryphal story that a young Jesus, accompanied by his uncle Joseph of Arimathea, traveled to the area that is now England and visited Glastonbury during Jesus’ lost years. The legend is also connected to an idea of a Second Coming, wherein Jesus establishes a new Jerusalem.

On 12 June 2012, Danny Boyle who is directing the opening ceremony for the Olympic games title the opening scene ‘green and pleasant land’. any symbolism in that 12 horses, three cows, two goats, 10 chickens, 10 ducks, 9 geese, 70 sheep and three sheepdogs would be part of the opening scene. Is this trying to create a scene based on Noah’s Ark?
Ironically the daily mail wrote an article relating the ceremony to a Dark satanic mills of the industrial revolution.

Danny Boyle titled the whole opening ceremony ‘The Isles of Wonder’. This is from the following blog.

Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight, and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometimes voices,
That, if I then had wak’d after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that, when I wak’d,
 I cried to dream again.

William Shakespeare – The Tempest 

In a previous post Aflockalypse 2012 I wrote : “The opening ceremony at the London Olympics should be a ‘symbology’ feast for the eyes as it is choreographed by Danny Boyle, who I suspect is a Freemason . At a time of ‘austerity’ the total cost of the Olympics will be £10 bn . These sums of money are not spent unless it is important to someone .”

Danny Boyle has now given the game away to anyone who is interested, that he is probably a Freemason . The opening ceremony at the London Olympics titled “The Isles Of Wonder” will be based on “The Tempest” and the largest bell in Europe has been cast whose ring will open the ceremony . The lines “Be not afeard : the isle is full of noises” from the Tempest are to be engraved on the bell .

Freemasonry claims William Shakespeare as one of their own and the choice of  using The Tempest is predictable for anyone who has researched the esoteric influences  in the ceremonies for the Olympic Games . Without going off on a tangent, it has been claimed by some that Shakespeare was the founder of modern Freemasonry . Whatever the truth about this, Freemasonry positively drools over The Tempest and see it as one of the finest works in relation to Freemasonry .

From Shakespeare And Freemasonry by mason, William Norman M’Daniel, written in 1912 in relation to The Tempest :

Professor Henry Van Dyke has made the splendid generalization that the aim and purpose of the Shakespearean dramas also is to teach the Majesty of the Moral Law. It will be found, when the plays are studied from this viewpoint, that they form a comprehensive and consistent body of ethics or moral philosophy, the term being used in the Baconian sense as embracing politics, ethics, as commonly conceived, and logic; and that this system is entirely in harmony with the teachings of Freemasonry.

It may be more exact to say that Freemasonry is a training school to make the realization of this philosophy possible. Perhaps the simplest and yet most satisfactory definition of Freemasonry is Dr. Hemming’s, that “Freemasonry is a beautiful system of morals, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.” Shakespeare may be also defined as a beautiful system of morals, veiled in allegory and illustrated by fictitious and historical personages.

Further, one play, The Tempest, which stands first in the collected plays, is an epitome, a miniature of the whole. The argument of our main proposition – the identity of Shakespeare and Freemasonry – may be based upon the proper interpretation of this play. One primary idea must be kept in mind: these plays are works of art; works of literary art, which, next to music, is the highest art; and again, in the form of the drama, which is the highest form of literary art. And as Alfred Noyes has so aptly expressed it, “The content and import of a work of art are not to be weighed in the same way as those of a philosophic system or a work of science.”

It is to be realized more as a personal experience, not so much comprehended by the mind as apprehended by the soul. Let it not be thought strange, therefore, if for many persons The Tempest has little significance. For that matter, to how comparatively few persons is Shakespeare anything more than a name. The reason is to be found in our one-sided, unnatural and, in many respects, false education. Others can place themselves where Shakespeare and Freemasonry meet, if they but free their minds from traditions and prejudices.

John Dee
The Tempest is viewed as the most esoteric of Shakespeare’s plays . It has been claimed John Dee, the famous alchemist and creator of the Enochian alphabet was the inspiration for the character of Prospero but the esoteric nature of The Tempest is for another post .

From the Olympic flame, the Rainbow motif and ‘All Seeing Eye’ used for the Wenlock and Mandeville mascots and now the use of The Tempest in the opening ceremony, the London Olympics will be full of masonic symbology and the opening and closing ceremonies should include further occult symbology .

Please look at Bob Schlenker’s blog relating to this subject.

Glastonbury is a town famously associated with the legends of Joseph of Arimathea, the Holy Grail and King Arthur.

The artifact known as the “Winchester Round Table,” a large tabletop hanging in Winchester Castle bearing the names of various knights of Arthur’s court, was probably created for a Round Table tournament.[18] The current paintwork is late; it was done by order of Henry VIII of England for Holy Roman Emperor Charles V’s 1522 state visit, and depicts Henry himself sitting in Arthur’s seat above a Tudor rose.

 This Tudor rose is an important symbol, not only because it is still used today in the monarchy but because there are secret societies that embrace this symbol because of the esoteric knowledge and even the bloodlines passed down through the generations. Much of the secret societies like the Order of the Rosy Cross (Rosicrusianism) which is a philosophical secret society which has links to Scottish Rite Freemasonary (which also uses the rose in their symbolism). The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, these all have esoteric links to Judaism and Israel, Jerusalem. Unfortunately this information is woven together in a labyrinth of symbolism and history and showing clearly the whole meaning of this and how it connects to the London Olympics will take months of research.

Firstly we have the four maypoles; the rose of England, thistle of Scotland, the daffodil of Wales, Flax of Ireland. Here we have the rose being represented showing the bloodline of England, from King Arthur and his Holy grail.
This is important because the focal point of Boyle’s “Green & Pleasant” set will be the sacred Glastonbury Tor, topped by a cosmic Hawthorn tree. Legend has it when Joseph of Arimathea set his walking staff on the ground to sleep, it miraculously took root, leafed out, and blossomed as the “Glastonbury Thorn”!

Symbolically, ancient trees atop sacred mounds are said to create “cosmic connection points”. While the branches reach into the heavens, the roots reach for the underworld. In Judaic tradition the burning bush through which Moses spoke to God was the Hawthorn Bush, implying a connection between worlds!

John Michelle has pointed out, “As a source & repository of legends, Glastonbury is distinguished above all other places in England. Episodes from the Grail Cycle, the tales of King Arthurs heroes, and other items of prehistoric lore adapted to Christianity are located in it’s surrounding landscape, and it’s ancient reputation as a GATEWAY to another world is continually reaffirmed by it’s natural attraction to mystics.”

The New Jerusalem

I have included an excerpt from the Bible because it describes the ‘New Jerusalem’ and the twelve tribes of Israel.

The New Heaven and the New Earth

21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place[a] of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people,[b] and God himself will be with them as their God.[c] 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. 7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

The New Jerusalem

9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed— 13 on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And the one who spoke with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city and its gates and walls. 16 The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its width. And he measured the city with his rod, 12,000 stadia.[d] Its length and width and height are equal. 17 He also measured its wall, 144 cubits[e] by human measurement, which is also an angel’s measurement. 18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel. The first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, 25 and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. 26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. 27 But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

The Olympic Torch

Masonic “Torch of Enlightenment”. Also referred to back in the 1700′s by the Illuminati Masons as the “Flaming Torch of Reason”. The Torch represents the “Sun” in the sky.
On June 30, 1936,the first torch-flame was kindled in Olympia, Greece, in the ruins of the Temple of Hera, by 15 robed “virgins,” using a concave mirror focusing the sun’s rays, all under the supervision of a “high priestess.”
The tradition of a torch relay from Greece to the host country of the Olympic games has been continued at every Olympiad since then. Even the ritual kindling of the flame with a mirror on the grounds of the Temple of Hera remains virtually intact as the official method of starting the relay.

Ishtar, the hidden symbol.

There is one problem. The statue of liberty doesn not fully mimic the Goddes Libertas, only the face looks the same, and the torch isn’t present at all. We now know who  Libertas is, but there is another Goddess called Ishtar. Ishtar was adorned with a crown of seven spikes. She is a goddess of fertility, love and war. In Roman mythology, Juno was the equivalent mythical character to Hera, and Hera the same as Ishtar. In the Babylonian pantheon, she “was the divine personification of the planet Venus”. Ishtar was above all associated with sexuality: her cult involved sacred prostitution; her holy city Erech was called the “town of the sacred courtesans”; and she herself was the “courtesan of the gods”.  Ishtar was the daughter of Sin or Anu. The idea is that the Egyptian goddess Isis who nurses Horus, and the Babylonian goddess Ishtar who nurses the god Tammuz, are one and the same.  She is also named as the Whore of Babylon in the Bible and the reason for free masons to choose her as a secret symbol, which means something different than we are led to believe.

IMPORTANT: Ishtar was equated by the Greeks with either Hera  or AphroditeAnd we just learned that the Olympic torch is set ablaze in the Temple of Hera!

Babylonian scriptures called her the “Light of the World, Leader of Hosts,
Opener of the Womb, Righteous Judge, Lawgiver,
Goddess of Goddesses, Bestower of Strength,
Framer of All decress, Lady of Victory,
Forgiver of Sins, Torch of Heaven and Earth.

This is part of a prayer towards Ishtar:

Who art exalted and firmly fixed, O valiant Ishtar, great is thy might!
brilliant one, torch of heaven and earth, light of all peoples,
O unequaled angry one of the fight, strong one of

the battle,
O firebrand which is kindled against the enemy, which brings about the destruction of the furious,
gleaming one, Ishtar, assembler of the host,

O deity of men, goddess of women, whose designs no one can conceive.

The Babylonian goddess Ishtar was equated by the Greeks with either Hera or Aphrodite.

Babylonian scriptures called her the “Light of the World, Leader of Hosts, Opener of the Womb, Righteous Judge, Lawgiver, Goddess of Goddesses, Bestower of Strength, Framer of All Decrees, Lady of Victory, Forgiver of Sins, Torch of Heaven and Earth.

The same type of symbolism can be seen elsewhere:

The Statue of Liberty.

The Statue of Liberty was presented in 1884 as a gift from the French Grand Orient Temple Masons to the Masons of America in celebration of the centenary of the first Masonic Republic. She is holding the Masonic “Torch of Enlightenment”. Also referred to back in the 1700′s by the Illuminati Masons as the “Flaming Torch of Reason”. The Torch represents the “Sun” in the sky. The Statue of Liberty’s official title: “Liberty Enlightening the World”. Libertas, is the false symbol.

The torch is also visible on the statue of liberty. The statue is said to be modeled after Isis and Juno, Juno was the conqueror of the heavens. She was the goddess of the pure light, like the light of the moon. Although it’s sculptor Bartholdi visited Egypt for inspiration, it is said that she was patterned after the goddess, Libertas, the Roman personification of freedom. Libertas is usually portrayed as a matron with a laurel wreath or a pileus.

(Fact: The measurements of the Statue of Liberty from the heal to the head is precisely 111 feet

What may suprise you is that Easter actually derives from the Pagan religions. If your interested I have included some information about this. It relates to the sun worshiping occult side of what I am presenting.)

The Olympic Torch Relay

With the commotion over the torch relay for the 2008 Beijing Olympics you’d be forgiven for asking why we even bother with it? Any responsible committee would have halted the parade after it became obvious it was being followed by violent protests. But no, we had to remain ‘in the Olympic spirit’ and presume that the keeping of a long- running tradition was so important that a little police brutality and a few hundred arrests were mere necessities. Tibet’s been in an international dilemma for nearly 60 years since China sent in thousands of troops in 1950. Over the decades, several uprisings have been violently quashed by Chinese authorities, with many monks arrested or killed. The latest of these was in March 2008 and the outcome was once again predictable. China accused Tibet’s exiled “spiritual leader” the Dalai Lama of masterminding the violence – an accusation that should sound ludicrous for anyone who knows who the Dalai Lama is. The press then used the violence to aggravate global disapproval of China.

Conveniently the torch relay followed in the same month, and we were shown daily footage of “Free Tibet” supporters being rugby-tackled and beaten, all around the world, and this time none of us could avoid feelings of empathy and outrage.

Like with any clear theme in the media, questions must be asked as to the agenda – to whose advantage is a world of powerless pro-Tibetans? My alarm bells started ringing when I heard George W. Bush make comments in support of the movement. With this political support, and apparent propaganda campaigns like the US-backed pro-Tibet radio station Radio Free Asia, and calls for a boycott of the 2008 Olympics from celebrity actor- turned-activist Richard Gere, I started wondering how might our governments be benefiting from global compassion for “Free Tibet”? Historically, Tibet has long captured the West’s imagination as the site of a mystical Utopia.

This is fundamentally due to the Tibetan Monks’ practice of Buddhism.

Tibetan Buddhism is both non-violent and non-dogmatic and uses meditation as a means to attaining a higher spiritual understanding. Buddhism is different to Christianity in that it is not centred on a ‘God’ and is aimed at gaining insight into life’s true nature. The Buddhist believes there are 7 chakras in the human body of which four are of particular importance.

Hearing of the Tibetan plight on the news every day for a month, I couldn’t help but think that there in itself lies an agenda.

Western news channels successfully manage to feed the population’s consciousness with fear and negativity in an effort to distort the reality around us. They are used as emotional tools providing the ‘elite’ with a powerful method of control. I have learnt they are not to be trusted, but there is a great deal to be learned from them.

The Origins Of The Olympic Flame
The Olympic Torch today is ignited several months before the opening celebration of the Olympic Games at the site of the ancient Olympics in Olympia, Greece. Eleven women, representing the roles of priestesses, perform a ceremony in which the torch is kindled by the light of the Sun, its rays concentrated by a parabolic mirror.
In 1928 it was the first time the Olympic Flame was lit during the Olympics. However, the torch relay, however, would not occur until the 1936 Summer Olympics. 1928 was also the year that the first time, the parade of nations started with Greece, which holds the origins of the Olympics, and ended with the host country, a tradition which continues today.

The torch relay of modern times which transports the flame from Greece to the various designated sites of the games had no ancient precedent and was introduced by Carl Diem, with the support of Joseph Goebbels, at the controversial Berlin Olympics as a means to promote Nazi ideology.

On a visit to Greece for an Olympic conference in 1934, Diem and Lewald imagined a new symbolic pageant that would cloak the German games with the ancient Greek mantle: the transit of a lit Olympic flame from Greece to Berlin by a relay of torch-bearing runners. While the relay is sometimes believed to be an ancient tradition, it was in fact the wholly modern creation of Lewald and Diem: the ancient games included a ritual flame commemorating the theft of fire from the gods by Prometheus, but no torch relay.

  • On June 30, 1936,the first torch-flame was kindled in Olympia, Greece, in the ruins of the Temple of Hera, by 15 robed “virgins,” using a concave mirror focusing the sun’s rays, all under the supervision of a “high priestess.” It was carried to the Acropolis in Athens for a special invocation, and then relayed along the 3,422-kilometer distance to the Olympic stadium in Berlin by an equal number of young Aryan-looking runners, each of whom took the flame a single kilometer.
  • June 30, 1936: Siegfried Eifrig carries the Olympic torch to light a ceremonial altar in the center of Berlin, before the flame is carried into the Olympic stadium.
  • June 30, 1936: Siegfried Eifrig carries the Olympic torch to light a ceremonial altar in the center of Berlin, before the flame is carried into the Olympic stadium.

On its way, the flame passed through Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Austria and Czechslovakia; those countries, and Greece itself, would all be under Nazi domination within ten years.The event was filmed by Hitler’s favorite director, Leni Riefenstahl, and branded with the giants of German industry: the lighting-mirrors were made by the Zeiss corporation, and the torches themselves, fueled with magnesium to prevent them from going out in bad weather, were constructed by Krupp, the huge steel and munitions conglomerate that armed Germany for both world wars.

The tradition of a torch relay from Greece to the host country of the Olympic games has been continued at every Olympiad since then. Even the ritual kindling of the flame with a mirror on the grounds of the Temple of Hera remains virtually intact as the official method of starting the relay.

The 1936 Games were the first to employ the torch run. This was the 11th modern day Olympiad. The games were opened by Adolf Hitler in Berlin, Nazi Germany. Incidentally, Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 (33 degrees of Freemasonry anyone?).

The Dalai Lama’s recent actions, involving China and the Olympic Games, are all part of an intended plan to bring ‘sun worship’ and ‘spirituality’ to the forefront of everyone’s mind.
There are numbers and dates surrounding the Olympic Torch relay and the foreign relations between the Dalai Lama and China, which insinuate a much greater plan is taking place! But first, the Olympic flame…

The Flame Passes Through Lhasa, Tibet 2008
“The Olympic torch is set to pass through the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, on June 20-21.
Chinese government officials have confirmed their plans to continue despite the ongoing protests and crackdown across ethnic Tibetan areas.”

Yes that’s right, the Olympic Flame which is lit by the ‘sun’ passes through Lhasa in Tibet on the Summer Solstice – the sun of most high!

The Dalai Lama’s Visit To The UK in 2008
The Dalai Lama began an 11-day visit to Britain Tuesday, including talks with Prime Minister Gordon Brown who faces a delicate balancing act of supporting Tibetan rights while not offending China. Source

So as you can see here, the history of the Olympic Torch relay and the Dalai Lama’s
recent actions are compounded with number 11 – sun worshipping symbolism…

Oh and we mustn’t forget that the Olympic Torch symbolises our ‘veiled’ moon Goddess – Isis (as seen here, ‘starring’ as the Statue Of Liberty in Escape From New York and holding the flame which represents the Sun God ‘Nimrod’ also known as ‘Baal’
In the Rockefeller Center in New York City that covers 22 arces of land, in the enterance there is a Statue of Promethus, some have viewed this a Apollo because both Apollo and Prometheus are gods of enlightenment. Historian James H. Billington that was sworn in as the Librarian of Congress in 1987; wrote in his great book Fire in the Minds of Men:

A recurrent mythic model for revolutionaries-early romantics, the
young Marx, the Russians of Lenin’s time-was Prometheus, who stole
fire from the gods for the use of mankind. The Promethean faith of
revolutionaries resembled in many respects the general modern belief
that science would lead men out of darkness into light. But there was
also the more pointed, millennia! assumption that, on the new day
that was dawning, the sun would never set. Early during the French
upheaval was born a “solar myth of the revolution,” suggesting that the
sun was rising on a new era in which darkness would vanish forever.
This image became implanted “at a level of consciousness that simulta­
neously interpreted something real and produced a new reality.” 3
The new reality they sought was radically secular and stridently sim­
ple. The ideal was not the balanced complexity of the new American
federation, but the occult simplicity of its great seal : an all-seeing eye
atop a pyramid over the words Novus Ordo Seclorum. In search of
primal, natural truths, revolutionaries looked back to pre-Christian
antiquity-adopting pagan names like “Anaxagoras” Chaumette and
“Anacharsis” Cloots, idealizing above all the semimythic Pythagoras as
the model intellect-turned-revolutionary and the Pythagorean belief in
prime numbers, geometric forms, and the higher harmonies of music.
Many of the same Strasbourg musicians who first played La Marseil­
laise in 1792 had introduced Mozart’s Magic Flute to French audiences
in the same city only a few months earlier; and Mozart’s illuminist mes­
sage seemed to explain the fuller meaning of the jour de gloire that
Rouget de Lisle’s anthem had proclaimed :
The rays of the sun have vanquished the night,
The powers of darkness have yielded to light.4″

Prometheus was the symbol for the occult hierarchy and the Revolutions (revolving back to the classic Golden age) they created. Apollo, son of Zeus, became the Sun God (Nimrod). Therefore the Statue of Liberty, on the most symbolic elements of America today; is represents many goddess and gods and doesn’t liberate America from anything.

This exert from Manly P Hall. The Secret Teachings of All Ages details how these gods are all related and symbolized for a sacrifice. These teachings of Mysteries are what the secret societies that the people we put in power, the elite, spend and dedicate their lives to passing down and understand as well as putting their NWO agenda into the world.

Saviors unnumbered have died for the sins of man and by the hands of man, and through
their deaths have interceded in heaven for the souls of their executioners. The martyrdom
of the God-Man and the redemption of the world through His blood has been an essential
tenet of many great religions. Nearly all these stories can be traced to sun worship, for the
glorious orb of day is the Savior who dies annually for every creature within his universe,
but year after year rises again victorious from the tomb of winter. Without doubt the
doctrine of the crucifixion is based upon the secret traditions of the Ancient Wisdom; it is
a constant reminder that the divine nature of man is perpetually crucified upon the animal
organism. Certain of the pagan Mysteries included in the ceremony of initiation the
crucifixion of the candidate upon a cross, or the laying of his body upon a cruciform altar.
It has been claimed that Apollonius of Tyana (the Antichrist) was initiated into the
Arcanum of Egypt in the Great Pyramid, where he hung upon a cross until unconscious
and was then laid in the tomb (the coffer) for three days. While his body was
unconscious, his soul was thought to pass into the realms of the immortals (the place of
death) After it had vanquished death (by recognizing that life is eternal) it returned again
to the body, which then rose from the coffer, after which he was hailed as a brother by the
priests, who believed that he had returned from the land of the dead. This concept was, in
substance, the teaching of the Mysteries.

The list of the deathless mortals who suffered for man that he might receive the boon of
eternal life is an imposing one. Among those connected historically or allegorically with
a crucifixion are Prometheus, Adonis, Apollo, Arys, Bacchus, Buddha, Christna, Horus,
Indra, Ixion, Mithras, Osiris, Pythagoras, Quetzalcoatl, Semiramis, and Jupiter.
According to the fragmentary accounts extant, all these heroes gave their lives to the
service of humanity and, with one or two exceptions, died as martyrs for the cause of
human progress. In many mysterious ways the manner of their death has been designedly
concealed, but it is possible that most of them were crucified upon a cross or tree. The
first friend of man, the immortal Prometheus, was crucified on the pinnacle of Mount
Caucasus, and a vulture was placed over his liver to torment him throughout eternity by
clawing and rending his flesh with its talons. Prometheus disobeyed the edict of Zeus by
bringing fire and immortality to man, so for man he suffered until the coming of Hercules
released him from his ages of torment.
Concerning the crucifixion of the Persian Mithras, J. P. Lundy has written: “Dupuis tells
us that Mithra was put to death by crucifixion, and rose again on the 25th of March. In
the Persian Mysteries the body of a young man, apparently dead, was exhibited, which
was feigned to be restored to life. By his sufferings he was believed to have worked their
salvation, and on this account he was called their Savior. His priests watched his tomb to
the midnight of the vigil of the 25th of March, with loud cries, and in darkness; when all
at once the light burst forth from all parts, the priest cried, Rejoice, O sacred initiated,
your God is risen. His death, his pains, and sufferings, have worked your salvation.” (See
Monumental Christianity.)

My personal view on the whole Olympic conspiracy is that there will either be one of two events taking place. It will either be some kind of mind control event making the whole world’s focus and energy make London become the ‘Super city’ of the world. Everyone in the world knows London and it’s poignant history and symbolic structures that resonates a certain type of energy, an energy that deep within has a history that London was built by people who have a secret bloodline of Israeli Zionist connections. However over the course of history their agenda hasn’t been able to manifest itself into reality because of various reasons. There are various secret societies that have blood ties that hold the knowledge of the mysteries. In 1666, after the Great Fire of London we had the destruction of the old Roman structures leaving room for the plans to build a ‘New Jerusalem’. Christopher Wren, a member of the Royal Society, one of the oldest societies that changed from practicing in occult magic  was at the forefront of the rebuilding of London and this was what his plan looked like.

The 1972 Munich Olympics Connection

The Wikipedia page for the 2012 London Olympics draws a strange comparison between the 2012 logo and the logo used for the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany.

“BBC Sport acknowledged that ‘London 2012’s new logo has got the country talking’, and compared the innovative design to that of the logos of Mexico 1968 and Munich 1972”

The 1972 Munich Olympics were host to the first ‘official’ global terrorist attack, in which 11 Israelis were killed by Black September (the 9th month – 9/11), a group with ties to Yasser Arafat’s Fatah organization. The Olympics were host to121 countries.

Returning to pyramid numerology and the significance of the number 11:

1234321 = 11:11 x 11:11
121 countries = 11:11
11 fatalities

In essence, the 1972 Munich Olympics provided the first world stage for global
terrorism and the inclusion of the significant number ’11’ was anything but a

The 1984 Los Angeles Olympics Video

The year ‘1984’ has become synonymous with the George Orwell book of the same name.

“1984 is about life in a dictatorship as lived by Winston Smith, an intellectual worker at the Ministry of Truth, and his degradation when he runs afoul of the totalitarian government of Oceania.”

This famous novel introduced the concept of ‘Big Brother’, symbolised by an “All Seeing Eye”, and in recent years has been the basis for the reality TV show. At its core, ‘1984’ represented life under the New World Order:


‘1984’ has become a talisman of fear for the people of England, Europe and the rest of the world. It makes sense that, today, those deliberately disseminating fear around the globe would use that talisman against us. The ‘1984’ Los Angeles Olympics marked an opportunity for such a symbolic event.

The closing ceremony for the 1984 Olympics involved a UFO flying over the Olympic stadium and communicating with the audience. The UFO eventually lands, amid smoke and lights, at which point an alien steps out and greets the public.

Considering the 1984 Olympics had no other connections to UFO and alien phenomena, the only logical reasoning as to why this happened was again to plant a seed in the publics mind and to judge our reaction.

Beijing Olympics 2008 : Zion & The Fifth World
On 5th May 2005, Tony Blair held a UK general election, which secured him another 3 years in power. (555)

On 6th June 2006, everyone expected a day of the devil. Nothing happened. (666)

On 7th July 2007, Al Gore organised a series of concerts around the world, initiating a 3 year campaign to combat climate change. (777)

At Live Earth, not only did the audience take part in a ‘sun worship’ ritual during the opening number to ‘Genesis’ (credits to Matthew Delooze for his brilliant work on ‘Breaking The Serpent Spell’):

We were also treated to a fantastic finale by our lady ‘Madonna’ (unfortunately she didn’t perform her crucifixion act):

The Beijing Olympics commenced at 8.08pm CST on 8th August 2008. (888)

Are you starting to see a pattern here? It appears that numerologically significant days of the year entertain events controlled by ‘the governing powers’.

With all the commotion surrounding the Beijing Olympics, it’s hard to remember why we actually do these events… maybe it’s because of what they symbolically represent.

“There are many myths surrounding the origin of the ancient Olympic Games. The most popular legend describes that Heracles was the creator of the Olympic Games, and built the Olympic stadium and surrounding buildings as an honor to his father Zeus, after completing his 12 labours. The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance, contests alternating with sacrifices and ceremonies honouring both Zeus (whose colossal statue stood at Olympia), and Pelops, divine hero and mythical king of Olympia.”
So you could say that the Olympic Games, at the very least, are a pagan event honouring Zeus ‘King Of The Gods’ or the ‘creator’ if you like. Makes you wonder what his ’20’12 labours were?

Moving swiftly on to Beijing 2008, let’s take a look at the logo:

With a little ‘cut and paste’ (taking elements from the suprisingly ‘unathletic’ figure for an Olympic logo), this can be written as:

Isn’t that what the 2012 London Olympics logo says too?

You bet it is! What are the chances? Two Olympic games in succession where the logo contains the word ‘Zion’. Is it me or is this something that just doesn’t happen by chance? Here lies every insinuation that, between the years of 2008 and 2012, there is a 4-year plan for the creation of ‘Zion’, a ‘New Jerusalem’. 

Let’s delve deeper… You may recall that sometime last year the Beijing Olympic
Committee unveiled the 5 mascots for the Olympics. The date for this was, are you ready?

11th November 2007. Yes… 11th of the 11th, or 11:11.

“A set of five doll mascots for the 2008 Olympic Games were unveiled in Beijing on
November 11, exactly 1,000 days before the event’s opening ceremony.” 


Here’s the little critters… all 5 of them, coloured just like the Olympic rings. Ignore their pyramidal hats for a moment because there’s something much weirder going on here…

You may recall my interpretation of the Olympic rings a month or two back, but to repeat – symbolically each of the rings represents one of the 5 cycles of time which the Mayan calendar comprises. Each ring connects to one other… giving the impression that a new cycle starts before the end of an old… a transition period so to speak – a bit like the one we’re in now (1992-2012), the ‘time of no-time’, according to the Mayans.

Without further ado, here’s the official stance on the Beijing 2008 mascots:

Nini (green) : Wind. Every spring and summer, the children of Beijing have flown beautiful kites on the currents of wind that blow through the capital.

YingYing (orange) : Animal. Like all antelopes, Yingying is fast and agile and can swiftly cover great stretches of land as he races across the earth.

Huanhuan (red) : Fire. He is the “big brother”. He is a child of fire, symbolizing the Olympic Flame.

Jingjing (black) : Nature. Symbolizing the lush forest and the harmonious relationship
between man and nature.

BeiBei (blue) : Water. Strong in water sports, she reflects the blue Olympic ring.

Take note of BeiBei, the blue mascot representing water:

What’s that on BeiBei’s forehead? A ‘spiritual’ third eye?

If you order the mascots, just like the Olympic rings – red (fire), green (wind), black (nature), orange (animal), blue (spirit), a pattern emerges describing what could be seen as the evolution of consciousness as taught in esoteric circles.

Mineral / Element > Plant > Animal > Human > … (into spirit?) 

Coma > Deep Sleep > Dreaming > Waking > …

If the Olympic mascots and official logo do indeed correlate with the five 5125 year cycles of the Mayan Calendar and the evolution of consciousness, does the arrival of 2012 bring about the transition into the spiritual consciousness of the ‘blue’ Olympic ring, leaving the ‘orange’ ring of animal consciousness behind?

To further correlate the significance behind the ‘blue’ ring, and to draw a link to the London Olympics 2012:

“In the past few weeks an 11-mile blue fence has sprung up around the 2012 Olympics site in east London. Is it a necessary security measure – or a reminder of how divisive the games are?” Please read to see how significant the ‘blue’ fence is!

With the ritual use of the number 11, and the colour blue… it appears the Olympic Games is the perfect demonstration of how our governments can get things right if they really want to!

How does this all tie in? 

As Rik Clay and Justin Stephens have announced, it is their belief that come the Olympics 2012, we are going to see one of the largest hoaxes ever perpetrated on man.
With the rife symbolism in the promotional material, it can be assumed that people at the very top have an acute understanding of what is about to happen to our planet.

The Beijing Olympics slogan:


The premise of spiritual ascension, the opening of our third eyes and telepathic powers all sound exhilarating and beyond belief, but what if this is real and our impending reality is everything we’ve dreamed of?

Do you suppose that the ruling powers who have domineered over us for eternity are likely to let that one slip, or is it more than likely they are going to try and hijack it and dupe the public into believing that it is they who are responsible? A biblical, angelic event powered by a ‘Project Blue Beam’ anyone? The scene is set… it just depends on what their dream is.

The ‘XXX’ Olympiad Explained – Olympics, Porn and The Proof
There is a huge significance with the sequence of letters ‘XXX’. Firstly lets remember that the London Olympics in 2012 will be the third time London has hosted the Olympics.
Believe it or not, ‘XXX’ permeates our lives in a multitude of ways:
* The London 2012 Olympic Games (XXX Olympiad)
* Pornography
* Kisses on a letter, e-mail or greetings card
* ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ or ‘America’s Got Talent’ TV Show (for the few who still watch TV!)
* In the cinema (xXx with Vin Diesel)
* A certain someone’s birthday in 2012

Imagine for a moment, that when you’ve been showing respect, releasing emotion and energy to any of the above ‘XXX’ sequences, you have been feeding the biggest occult agenda known to man. An agenda which will bring about the spiritual ascen’sion’ of the world under a ‘false messiah’ known as the ‘Son Of God’.
Now imagine for a moment, it’s all true…

It is my view that the 2012 London Olympic Games (XXX Olympiad) are going to witness a pre-planned ‘alien visitation’ alongside the anointment of an ‘end times’ messiah. Our focus here is the letter ‘X’, so let’s take a look at two previous Olympic games:
XX Olympiad – The Munich Summer Olympics of 1972

The 1972 Munich Olympics were host to the first ‘official’ global terrorist attack, in which 11 Israelis were killed by Black September (the 9th month – 9/11), a group with ties to Yasser

Arafat’s Fatah organization. The Olympics were host to 121 countries:

1234321 = 11:11 x 11:11
121 countries = 11:11
11 fatalities

The emblem of the games was a blue solar logo (the “Bright Sun”). I will be covering the significance of the colour blue shortly.

X Olympiad – The Los Angeles (The Angels) Summer Olympics of 1932
The 1932 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the X Olympiad, were celebrated in 1932 in Los Angeles, California, United States. No other cities made a bid to host these Olympics. Held during the worldwide Great Depression, many nations and athletes were unable to pay for the trip to Los Angeles. Fewer than half the number of participants from the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam competed in 1932.

The Games of the X Olympiad were also the first to use the victory podium (that’s right, a pyramid): What does all of this mean?
As you can see, the X and XX Olympiads both witnessed remarkable world events, unrivalled by any other Olympic Games.
The 1932 games were held in the midst of the worldwide ‘Great Depression’, whilst the 1972 games gave a stage for the world’s first dose of ‘global terror’.
Does it seem so unrealistic, that the XXX Olympiad may have a surprise in store?

XXX – Unveiled
The letter X is more significant than you think.
First of all, you need to understand that the characters of the English alphabet are more than just letters. They are symbols with meaning, sometimes multiple meanings – much like the Egyptian hieroglyphs.
They are talismans. X is the 24th letter of the English alphabet. 2+4/2+4/2+4 = 666. XXX can be seen to represent the number of the beast.
William Blake painted this picture called The Number of the Beast is 666 that was part of a series of painting titled; The Gread Red Dragon Paintings.
The letter X originated from a letter in the Greek alphabet known as ‘Chi’

‘Chi’ is the 22nd letter of the Greek alphabet – that’s 11:11 for any of you who’ve been following.
The Spirit Of X or ‘Chi’
‘Chi’ or ‘X’ were the origins of the Chinese word ‘Qi’ meaning ‘life force’ or ‘energy flow’.
‘Chi’ was also the origins of the Japanese word ‘Ki’, as in ‘Reiki’. ‘Chi’ also features in ‘Tai Chi’.
As you can see, the letter X or ‘Chi’ is very much about ‘spirit’.

X – The Mother Goddess, Isis
“In Plato’s Timaeus, it is explained that the two bands which form the soul of the world cross each other like the letter Χ.”

Plato, an ancient Greek esoteric philosopher (important to remember, considering who we’re dealing with) associates the letter X with the ‘soul of the world’. ‘Soul of the world’ in Latin becomes ‘Anima mundi’. Both of these terms are identified with ‘Gaia’.

Gaia can be defined as:
“A complex entity involving the Earth’s biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and soil; the totality constituting a feedback or cybernetic system which seeks an optimal physical and chemical environment for life on this planet.”

Gaia is the ‘Mother Goddess’, who can be identified as Isis – the mother figure of the
Egyptian trinity.
X – The ‘Son Of God’, Horus
“Chi or X is often used to abbreviate the name Christ, as in the holiday Christmas (Xmas).”
Jesus Christ, the ‘Son Of God’ can be attributed to the sun, much like Horus – the son figure of the Egyptian trinity.
X – The Father
“A person normally has one pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. Females have two X chromosomes, while males have one X and one Y chromosome.”
A father has one X chromosome. The father can be identified with ‘Our father who art in heaven’ or Osiris – the father figure in the Egyptian trinity.

XXX – The Trinity
As you may have realised, this becomes all too easy now. XXX simply means the father, the son and the mother or should we say the trinity!

If you’ve listened to Rik Clays recent Red Ice Creations Radio interview, you’ll already know that he believes the 2012 Olympic Games are going to witness the implementation of the ‘trinity for a new age’, and here you have it – encoded in the very letters of the games themselves.
To reiterate, X is far more than just a letter.

XXX and the occult
Imagine your body is a biological computer, and that your 5 senses are filters. If you were to remove these filters, you would be bombarded by an all engrossing white light – a whole array of different energies, which you cannot perceive under normal conditions.
When you show emotion to a symbol, an object, a person, your lover – you are generating frequencies of energy which cannot be perceived through your 5 senses.

Now imagine, that an ‘intelligence’ which resides outside of your 5 senses, in another
dimension of reality perhaps, is capturing that energy for itself – for its own personal gain. The occult operates in co-ordinance with this ‘intelligence’.
The letters ‘XXX’ have been empowered as an occult symbol representing the trinity.
If you have no awareness of the occult meaning behind ‘XXX’, and you go on to show it
emotion, you are feeding this symbol with the energy (from outside of your 5 sense reality) that it desires. You are feeding the trinity, or even closer – a trinity event, at the 2012 London Olympics.

‘The truth is always hidden in plain sight’

XXX pornography (single men around the world, giving away their every energy to the computer screen, the most potent energy of all!) Here’s Amsterdam’s Coat Of Arms (a city founded upon its red light district) for good measure:

XXX the movie (shown in cinemas around the globe, designed to excite the audience.)
Britain’s (America’s) Got Talent – 3 judges (2 men, 1 woman – father, son and mother – the trinity) sat in front of a live TV audience, beaming into homes around the world via the televi’sion’ set. Laughter, tears, panic, applause… a range of emotions feeding yet more energy unto the symbol ‘XXX’.

And finally… something that we’re all guilty of doing. We don’t even know why we do it, only that it’s drilled into us from a young age:
We all sign our greetings cards and emails with ‘kiss kiss kiss’ – ‘XXX’. As previously mentioned, X originates from the Greek letter, ‘Chi’ which in Japanese is ‘Ki’. The word ‘Ki’ss can be broken down into ‘Ki’ or ‘spirit’ accompanied by SS. You could view this as two snakes, much like the structure of our DNA.

Time ticks away…
‘XXX’ symbolises the trinity, much like the early Egyptian creation trinity of Osiris, Isis and Horus.
We, the world, ‘consciousness’, have been feeding a ‘trinity event’, blissfully unaware for over a hundred years. I believe that this event is going to take place at the 2012 London Olympics, the XXX Olympiad.

So this leads to the question… who are the members of this ‘new trinity’? Who plays Osiris, the role of ‘Father’? Who plays Isis, the role of ‘Mother’? Who plays Horus, the ‘Son’, the ‘end game’ messiah for a ‘New World Order Of The Ages’? His birthday is on the 21st June, the summer solstice – the sun of the most high.

In the year 2012, he will be 30 years old = ‘XXX’.
His name is Prince William…. (PITP does not hold the view of Prince William Being the Antichrist). The 2012 Olympic Games Without doubt there is imagery and word play at work connecting a significant event to the 2012 Olympics:

* The 2012 logo which spells ‘Zion’
* A movie which could insinuate an alien visitation (here)
* A 1984 Olympics ceremony which stages an alien visitation (here)
* A slogan which spells out the plans for a ‘New World Order’
* The Olympic Rings and their connotations of cyclical time

The rabbit hole deepens…..

Since when was the London Olympics affiliated with small flying saucers, projected “Blue energy” beams , a big “Independence Day” style mothership and huge robotic streetwalkers?

Time stamps of Note:
0.40 Minutes = 11:11 symbology of the 4 chimneys (11:11 x 11:11 = 1234321
1.00 Minutes = UFO’s flying around the London “All Seeing Eye”
1.40 Minutes = Independence Day style Mother ship
2.00 Minutes = Robotic street walkers in the streets of London.

“This video serves one purpose, to plant a seed in the viewers mind.” – Rik Clay

The 1984 Los Angeles Olympics Video
The year ‘1984’ has become synonymous with the George Orwell book of the same name.
“1984 is about life in a dictatorship as lived by Winston Smith, an intellectual worker at the Ministry of Truth, and his degradation when he runs afoul of the totalitarian government of Oceania.”
This famous novel introduced the concept of ‘Big Brother’, symbolised by an “All Seeing Eye”, and in recent years has been the basis for the reality TV show in which it constantly watches the every move of willing participants and plays mind-control games with them. Millions of people think that what they are watching is entertainment however when the camera is switched the otherway, without contentment; what would we do. Later on I will show how the security of the Olympics is very much like a ‘Big Brother’ arena. At its core, ‘1984’ represented life under the New World Order:


‘1984’ has become a talisman of fear for the people of England, Europe and the rest of the world. It makes sense that, today, those deliberately disseminating fear around the globe would use that talisman against us.
The ‘1984’ Los Angeles Olympics marked an opportunity for such a symbolic event.
The closing ceremony for the 1984 Olympics involved a UFO flying over the Olympic stadium and communicating with the audience. The UFO eventually lands, amid smoke and lights, at which point an alien steps out and greets the public.
Considering the 1984 Olympics had no other connections to UFO and alien phenomena, the only logical reasoning as to why this happened was again to plant a seed in the public’s mind and to judge our reaction.
Project Bluebeam Anyone?

Secret Ley Lines of the Olympic Gold Medals.

Has anyone else noticed that the newly revealed Olympic gold medal appears to be covered in mysterious lines and geometric patterns? Having grown up on a diet of Alan Moore and (early) Iain Sinclair, we could only jump to the conclusion that the winning design contains a hidden map of Olympic ley lines – routes of energy connecting important locations.

The medal features a prominent representation of the River Thames. Lining this up with its counterpart on a Google map allows us to deduce where the corners of the triangle and square patterns fall. Note, the alignment is approximate, and what follows is open to a certain amount of wiggle room.

The medal lined up over the Thames.

A 50% fade, showing the overlay.

The map with medal absent. Red dots represent the vertices and centre of the triangle, blue dots are the corners of the rectangle.

There’s clearly something going on with the triangle. Look, the top vertex sits pretty much on top of the Olympic stadium. The bottom-right corner, meanwhile, is very close to the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, where shooting events will take place. The final corner is harder to descry. It’s South of the Old Kent Road, in the Queen’s Road area. Perhaps a nod to the monarch in her jubilee year? The centre of the triangle falls close to the O2, which will host several events under its temporary guise as the North Greenwich Arena.

As you may know, according to Baron Pierre de Coubertin, founder of modern Olympics, Olympism is a religion that honors Zeus. This is the god identified in Revelation 2 as Satan through reference to the Altar of Zeus. Olympism is in truth then an ancient form of Satanism. Medals and their ceremonial role in the context of the Olympics compares to other forms of Satanism, where ritual magick is typically practiced less publicly, and with this privacy there’s less need to shroud their activity. If people really knew what was and is being done, and why, they would never stand for it! When you can look at the Olympics, including their medals, and see, really see the symbols and their meanings, you can no longer deny the witness to a vast Satanic conspiracy operating in our midst.

Bob Schlenker’s Blog Research.

The front of each medal features the event identification on top, which begins with a hazard warning symbol, XXX. This mark is also a distinctive triple-helix DNA signaling supporting the testimony of the imagery of the golden light body of the Baphomet figure on the front and the alchemical transformation on the back.

  • A horizontal line suggests the Hermetic Maxim, As Above, So Below. As the acropolis appears with a temple above, it is revealed how the stadium is the temple below, a place of worship.
  • The lines of the wings against the lines of the stadium floor edges suggest the Masonic square and compass, which is even more pronounced when inverted.
  • Wing tips touch letters “l” and “n”- spanning 13 letters, the number of the rebel lord Beast
  • Hermaphrodite-Baphomet, swollen breasts and female clothing – but with male neck, shoulders, arms, pecs, with suggestion of male package.
  • Baphomet wings, and one arm is up and the other down, with a lower crescent moon suggested by the lines of the stadium.
  • Baphomet torch on the head is implied, overlaid on the implied Olympic ring, the hidden capstone of that mystical pyramid.
  • The god has a light body that is literally gold.
  • The god’s motion is from the Acropolis towards us, stepping out of the portal.
  • From the right, a dark portal from the underworld appears.
  • The magickal cloak is held in the left hand (left-hand path), which occults or obscures the stadium and its activity from view.
  • The object in the right hand is a writing implement, a cobra-like quill, and what is written on the magickal cloak is a serpentine script. Another snake appears in the script at far right. The magickal script is like a knotted net, making the cloak a magickal binding that binds also to the gods right ankle, restraining the being in this dimension.
  • The head band and ankle band allude to the mispabot and kesatot, ancient binding implements.
  • When the medal is inverted, the rings and wings form nested truncated pyramids, awaiting the antichrist capstone to be set.
Since they’re breaking the first commandment straight away with the entire premise of the games, it’s no big surprise to see the others kicked curbside. The medal is first an idol, a god cast in gold.The backside of each of the medals contains some “backside” symbolism because the main theme involves sodomy. That aspect is perhaps the most fundamental layer of the medal’s magickal work. The purple ribbonthat hangs the medal around the neck supports that theme.The imagery on the back is most obviously the logo inside a triangle, square and circle. When the logo is identified as a couple engaging in sex (the Bart and Lisa Simpson meme), we have a version of an alchemical standard, the philosopher’s stone, as pictured by the alchemist Michael Maier in Atalanta Fugiens.

This image compares to da Vinci’s Vitruvian man as one of the more popular classic foundations of the esoteric matter of squaring the circle. We see a man with a large compass, circling the square that is the wall, the stone. The wall is brick, masonry. Get it? Michael Maier was very closely associated with the related Rosicrucian order and was believed to be an initiate into Freemasonry. This alchemical squaring of the circle is a metaphor for ritual sodomy that opens the third eye and brings gnosis and enlightenment, but it goes beyond that to the greater goal. Ultimately it’s about exalting Lucifer in the place of the sovereign God, which intends to be wrought through the Beast and mark of the Beast and subsequent campaign of Armageddon, but in symbol this often appears in the identity of the hermaphrodite Baphomet, a corrupt image of the first man Adam who was made, formed and created in the image of God.The alchemy is the merging of the square and circle into one, the male and female, which is accomplished through the triangle, referencing, in part, the anal triangle and the transformational sex magick of ritual sodomy. It’s an act of worship their gods demand. This is pictured in the Cryptic Degree of York Rite Freemasonry in the Select Master imagery, joining the square and circle with the triangle. This is the rough equivalent of the Masonic Square and Compass and the essential sex magick of the backside of all three medals being awarded at the London 2012 Olympics.The alchemy, put another way, expresses the same essential work. It’s about transforming base metals into gold, signifying a post human genetic transformation of man into a golden triple-helix DNA bodied man-god hybrid beast.The alchemical bodily transformation is a grafting of the children of Yahweh into the Serpent’s family tree. It’s a Zion hijacking, of the people of the place, which is one reason why the logo breaks out into the word ZION. The magical merging of the genders, of the natures, it is a ZION working, a merging of the temples, physical and spiritual.

The Olympic Mascots.

Thank you Red Ice Creations for these.


Mike, Monsters Inc.

Kang and Kodos, The Simpsons.

B.O.B, Monsters vs Aliens.

The mascots show many rainbows in their pictures and animations designed for children. A rainbow as we all know doesn’t actually exist, it is a optical illusion and a metaphorical phenomenon which courses the whole light spectrum that we can perceive in our own reality throughout the sky.

The significance of the rainbow is something that seems to pop up at lot in various forms of media, here is a link to a blog someone wrote about this, please check it out. The mascots are certainly not from this world, and the rainbow in my view represents an energy and light coming down from above, the heavens using these friendly alien/monster mascots showing this happening.

In Greek mythology, the rainbow was considered to be a path made by a messenger (Iris) between Earth and Heaven. In Chinese mythology, the rainbow was a slit in the sky sealed by Goddess Nüwa using stones of five different colours. In Hindu mythology, the rainbow is called “Indradhanush”, meaning the bow (Sanskrit & Hindi: dhanush is bow) of Indra, the God of lightning, thunder and rain. Another Indian mythology says rainbow is the bow of Kama, the God of love. It is called Kamanabillu in Kannada, billu meaning bow. In Norse Mythology, a rainbow called the Bifröst Bridge connects the realms of Ásgard and Midgard, homes of the gods and humans, respectively. The Irish leprechaun’s secret hiding place for his pot of gold is usually said to be at the end of the rainbow. This place is impossible to reach, because the rainbow is an optical effect which depends on the location of the viewer. When walking towards the end of a rainbow, it will move further away.

Chad Stuemke says in his recent interview with Red Ice Creation, the 2012 Olympic special that he found out something very interesting one day when he looked at the letters

XXX; now if you remember in roman numerals X stands for 1o, that is why it’s the 30th Olympic games.

10 10 10
X    X     X
Now what is interesting that the numbers 101010 is a binary for the number 42. What is interesting with the number 42, besides the fact that inThe number 42 is, in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, “The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything“, calculated by an enormous supercomputer over a period of 7.5 million years. Unfortunately no one knows what the question is. Thus, to calculate the Ultimate Question, a special computer the size of a small planet and using organic components was created and named “Earth”
Also this interested me on the Wikipedia page:
In 1966, mathematician Paul Cooper theorized that the fastest, most efficient way to travel across continents would be to bore a straight hollow tube directly through the Earth, connecting a set of antipodes, evacuate it (remove the air), and then just fall through.[6] The first half of the journey consists of free-fall acceleration, while the second half consists of an exactly equal deceleration. The time for such a journey works out to be 42 minutes. Remarkably, even if the tube does not pass through the exact center of the Earth, the time for a journey powered entirely by gravity (also known as Gravity train) always works out to be 42 minutes, as long as the tube remains friction-free, as while gravity’s force would be lessened, so would the distance traveled at an equal rate.

Furthermore, given 27 same-size cubes whose nominal values progress from 1 to 27, a 3×3×3 magic cube can be constructed such that every row, column, and corridor, and every diagonal passing through the center, is composed of 3 cubes whose sum of values is 42.

The most important feature of the number 42 is that fact it is the angle in which light needs to refract, a process called disposition to produce a RAINBOW.

Could the number 42 mathematically using a rainbow and the Ley lines of the world be used for some type of ‘Star-gate’?

In Judaism here are 72 names of God, now considering we are talking about bringing about a ‘New Jerusalem’ in the London, then 30+42=72 Gods.
A few interesting facts about the number 72 also are:

  • In degrees Fahrenheit considered to be room temperature.
  • The average number of heartbeats per minute for a resting adult.
  • Percentage of water of which the human body is composed.
  • The life duration of the ovule is 72 hours.
  • The axis of the earth moves of one degree every 72 years compared to stars and to the vault of heaven.
  • Number of hours in 3 days is 72.
  • The number of languages spoken at the Tower of Babylon.

The mascots in the Olympic history has only been a feature part since the Winter 1968 games and they haven’t played a major part until the last few Olympic games. It seems to me that the mascots are being used to create a bridge between two world, what these worlds are is a mystery. Wither they are aliens or a ritual there is some questions needed answering.

Notice using children to depict this gesture, and obviously being told to do this action. The rainbow seems to be a prominent feature.

London Olympics 2012 : The Logo’s Creator

To further my coverage of the Olympics 2012 and the plans for a ‘false flag’ / fake alien invasion (or an event on the scale of biblical second coming), we have to go back to the very roots of the Olympics 2012 brand and logo

Michael Wolff

The brand was designed by Wolff Olins – a brand consultancy based in London and New York. They have been responsible for the brand design work behind GE Capital, Sony Ericsson, Unilever and (RED).

The company was founded in Camden Town, London, in 1965 by designer Michael Wolff and advertising executive Wally Olins. Wolff left the business in 1983, and Olins in 2001, though both are still active in the field of branding.
Wally Olins

From 1965 to the early 1990s, Wolff Olins played a central part in developing the craft of corporate identity in Europe and working with over 500 organizations worldwide. Among his clients were Audi, Apple records, P&O, Renault, 3i, Pilkington and Volkswagen. The current designs for Shell and BP are also some of Wolff Olins work.
Again both of these images can be seen as having Illuminati symbolism as demonstrated in the following video –
The “Open Your Mind” video is currently available on Youtube. Please watch this if you have no idea how the symbolism around the world is all linked.

For a partial list of Wolff Olins current work see

This design agency is a force not to be reckoned with – providing corporate identity to the who’s who of Europe since the 1960’s.

A quick glance at the Wolff Olins web page shows yet more imagery related to ‘Sion’:

Is it a coincidence that the Olympics logo can resemble the word ‘Zion’, and that, on the website of the agency who created the logo, you can find the word ‘Sion’? No.

This can’t happen by chance.

Zion (Hebrew: ,צןוי tziyyon; Tiberian vocalization: tsiyyôn;) transliterated Zion or Sion

Of the two founders, Wally Olins became the real success story.

Wally Olins is generally recognised to be the world’s most experienced practitioner of Corporate identity and branding.

Given this, I felt a few Googles were required to see what else could be found on Wally Olins.

Take a trip to the British Library Archival Sound Recordings, and you will find an audio interview with the man himself.

Wally Olins [WO] born London 19 December 1930. Father Alfred Olins; Mother Rachel Muskowicz, both born in London in 1896 into Jewish immigrant families escaping pogroms in Eastern Europe in the 1880’s and 90’s. Talks about parents’ European origins. Briefly describes mother’s family background through memories of grandmother living with them. Father second son of large family who developed a road transport business. WO talks of mother having mental health problems and the impact this had on his parents’ marriage and the family in general as well as on himself. Describes his father’s successful role in family business. Talks about father persuading him to become a Freemason and its triggering a recognition of insider/outsider issues and their relationship to his drives and ambitions.

It just so turns out that Wally’s father was a Freemason and, more than likely, he’s one too. And you wonder why it is, that many of the corporate logos you see plastered around our cities, contain the ‘All Seeing Eye’ and hidden occult symbology – well here is your answer. Everything is connected so to speak.

The designers behind some of Europe’s major corporate brands have been and still are, educated in esoteric and occult philosophies. Wally Olins may have left the Wolff Olins brand consultancy in 2001, ruling him out as the designer of the 2012 logo, but ask yourself this – would he leave the company which bears his name in such un-educated hands? Or is it more than likely that he found the perfect replacements to continue his legacy? So to summarise, the man behind the company responsible for the Olympics 2012 logo was involved in Freemasonry.

Do you believe that the logo for the 2012 Olympics Games is still so innocent?

The 2012 Stadium Design Video

Hypothetically speaking, if 2012 is to see London established as the ‘New Jerusalem’ for a New World Order (a global government under a one world religion)… how could this be achieved?

We can safely assume that a stereotypical terrorist attack is no longer sufficient to implement a global unification strategy. In essence an event is required with the magnitude of a biblical second coming, a threat from outer-space – or even both? An event with the capacity to create all as ‘one’.

In the film Fight Club, a scene depicts Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) inserting a frame of pornography into a movie whilst the audience in the cinema watch. Most of them don’t notice it on a conscious level, but they did see it and it did enter their brains. This demonstrates how subliminal programming works on the subconscious, and it happens to all of us – everyday.

A video released by the 2012 Olympic Committee depicts the construction phases of the new Olympic stadium. Talk about provocative imagery…need to try and find this.

Since when was the London Olympics affiliated with small flying saucers, projected “blue energy” beams, a big ‘Independence Day’ style mothership and huge robotic street walkers? Who came up with this concept?

Time stamps of note:

0.40 minutes = 11:11 symbology with the 4 chimneys
1.00 minutes = UFO’s flying around the London “All Seeing Eye”
1.40 minutes = Independence Day style mothership
2.00 minutes = Robotic street walkers in the streets of London
3.51 minutes = Three flashes of an Athletes head with sunglasses. At first glance it looks
like an Alien face! and played at normal speed acts as a blatant subliminal.

This video serves one purpose – to plant a seed in your mind! and adds more fuel to the fire for the proposed “ProjectBluebeam”

Olympic Stadium Symbolism

Again this is from Bob Schlenker’s Blog looking at the very ugly, strange observation TOWER on the Olympic site.

Nearby the stadium sits the newly or perhaps nearly completed ArcelorMittal Orbit. (The Olympic Orbit – Monument to Chaos) In this picture you can clearly see the helix inside. Anish Kapoor, the designer, openly declares that the tower of Babel was an inspiration for the work. The near attainment of the goal for the tower described in Genesis 11 was cause for another intervention like in the days of Noah, when man’s activity had to be interrupted.

5 The Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 The Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.

Genesis 11:5-6

The city and the tower that were built had astounding potential. What the builders purposed to do must have been inspired by the evil one. I believe this metallic lattice structure with the helix inside, that ascends people heavenward, has the same inspiration and ultimately the same goal as the tower that inspired it.

I found the current Wikipedia entry’s Interpretation section worth excerpting here which, among other things, reveals an 8-feature and a 3-feature (tripod) that establishes a link to the other two items in this post, the stadium and torch, suggesting they are of the same kind. Beast bodies – hybrid god-man posthuman forms.

Kapoor said one of the influences in his design for the tower was the Tower of Babel, the sense of “building the impossible” that “has something mythic about it.”, and that the form “straddles Eiffel and Tatlin”. Balmond, working on the metaphor of an orbit, envisaged an electron cloud moving, to create a structure that appears unstable, propping itself up, “never centred, never quite vertical.” Both believe Orbit represents a new way of thinking, “a radical new piece of structure and architecture and art” which utilises non-linearity – the use of “instabilities as stabilities.” The spaces inside the structure, in between the twisting steel, are “cathedral like”, according to Balmond, while according to Kapoor, the intention is that visitors will engage with the piece as they wind “up and up and in on oneself” on the spiral walkway.The Independent describes Orbit as “a continuously looping lattice…made up of eight strands winding into each other and combined by rings like a jagged knot”, The Guardian describes it as a “giant lattice tripod sporting a counterweight collar around its neck designed to offset the weight of its head, a two-storey dining and viewing gallery”, while according to the BBC, the design incorporates the five Olympic rings.Upon its launch, Johnson said of the “mind-boggling” design, that “It would have boggled the minds of the Romans. It would have boggled Gustave Eiffel.” Design panel member Nick Serota said Orbit was a tower with an interesting twist, with “the energy you might traditionally associate with this type of structure but in a surprisingly female form”.”ArcelorMittal Orbit – Wikipedia
For more insightful artwork, architecture and more symbolism involved please click on this link where Dr Mark S. Gray, a Chiropractor and Investigative Symbologist shows his collection of previous Olympic parks.
The Symbolic Lights
 The lights in the Olympic stadium are a pyramid shaped structure that has a light on the top triangle, illuminating on the people around the world. Where have we seen this symbolism before?
Yes you got it, the pyramid of the US one dollar bill.


The Egyptians did not crown “The Great Pyramid” with a capstone. The pyramid has been left unfinished for thousands of years. The back of every U.S. one dollar bill has an “incomplete” pyramid on it with the capstone floating and “unattached” above it.

The pyramid base represents mankind as incomplete and wanting. The capstone represents the enlightened few, the Illuminati, who reign in power over the world and the masses. According to Biblical scripture, Satan is the god of this sinful world (2nd Corinthians 4:4), and deceeptively appears as an angel of light (2nd Corinthians 11:13,14). The Bible teaches that Satan was previously, Lucifer (light bearer), one of the archangels in Heaven. Lucifer rebelled against God, demanding equality and was cast down to the earth.

Satan is said to be a master deceiver and liar, and always appears in a deceptive form. Many of today’s top U.S. politicians are occult members, attending Satanic ceremonies annually at the Bohemian Grove in California. The occult is rich in Symbols .The general public is generally unaware of the symbolism in corporate logos and monuments that blatantly mock the woeful ignorance of society at large.

When the capstone is attached to the pyramid and “illuminated” at the 2012 London Olympics, it will be a crowning celebration of the New World Order one-world-government victory. It is a celebration of the completion of Luciferic ascension.

“This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
– David Rockefeller speaking at the UN, Sept. 14, 1994

The Great Pyramid of Giza represents the great New World Order: A One World Government, One World Religion and One World Economy, which awaits its ultimate leader and world King. The New World Order has been in the planning stages for thousands of years. The Great Pyramid awaits its completion when the capstone is set in place during the 2012 London Olympics. Light enters the body through the eye and the all-seeing eye represents Lucifer.

The 2012 Olympic Mascots provide an important clue concerning the agenda of the Illuminati Occult. Wenlock and Mandeville, the mascots, are bizarre animations supposedly depicting two drops of steel from a steelworks.

As you look at the Teletubbies inspired creatures, your attention is immediately drawn to the whimsical representation of the All-Seeing Eye. The eye is crowned with what appears to be the capstone of the unfinished pyramid indicating ascension complete. Within the capstone is the letter “W” which symbolizes Lucifer’s “W” shaped trident (devil’s pitchfork).

Wenlock and Mandeville are scary by design…especially when you consider what their real purpose could be. Notice the pyramid on the top of Wenlock’s head. This mascot pair could just as easily have been named Lucifer and Horus. They just scream “Illuminati monsters.”

The “All-Seeing Eye” is the most prominent characteristic of each of them. Each one of their eyes is actually a camera that allows them to “record everything.” Fitting, considering how some argue that London is already in a Police State.

Watch the BT vision advertisment for the London Olympics, at the beginning it depicts lights coming down from the skys onto the City of London, while these lights hit the Olympic contestants and makes them become faster and stronger. I wouldn’t normally question an advertisement like this but with the information of a possible false flag event, what do lights coming from the skys have to do with the Olympics and providing a communication service.

The Illuminati Card Game

In July of 1982, two men named Steve Jackson and Dave Martin created the game “Illuminati” which was a board game that went out in paper back. The game had been stalling nationally, but had a strong local following. There are many mysteries surrounding the game, including questions surrounding the creators and the game itself. The problem or concpiracies surrounding the game will be apparent when you see the cards below.

Here is what Jackson says on his website
“On March 1, 1990, the Secret Service, in an early-morning raid, searched the offices of Steve Jackson Games. The agents kept the employees out of the offices until the afternoon, and took the company’s BBS — called “Illuminati” — along with an employee’s work computer, other computer equipment, and hundreds and hundreds of floppy disks. They took all the recent versions of a soon-to-be-published game book, “GURPS Cyberpunk,” including big parts of the draft which were publicly available on Illuminati.
On March 2, Steve Jackson tried to get copies of the seized files back from the Secret Service. He was treated badly, and given only a handful of files from one office computer. He was not allowed to touch the Illuminati computer, or copy any of its files.
Steve Jackson Games took a nosedive, and barely avoided going out of business. According to Jackson, eight employees lost their jobs on account of the Secret Service raid, and the company lost many thousands of dollars in sales. It is again a busy enterprise, no thanks to the Secret Service (although they tried to take credit, pointing to the supposedly wonderful publicity their raid produced).

After months of pestering, including pressure by lawyers and Senator Lloyd Bentsen (now, as Treasury Secretary, the Secret Service’s boss) the Secret Service returned most of the equipment taken, some of it much the worse for wear. By then, Steve Jackson had restarted Illuminati on a different computer. When the old Illuminati computer was finally given back, Jackson turned it on — and saw that all the electronic mail which had been on the board on March 1 was gone! Wayne Bell, WWIV developer and guru, was called in. He gave us invaluable (and free) help evaluating the condition of the files. He concluded,
and testified firmly at trial, that during the week of March 20,1990, when the Secret Service still had Illuminati, the BBS was run, and every piece of e-mail was individually accessed and deleted. The Illuminati files the Secret Service had returned to Steve Jackson left irrefutable electronic traces of what had been
done — even I could understand how the condition and dates of the e-mail files showed what had happened, and when.”

After Jackson’s incident with the secret service, he and his colleagues put his game “Illuminati” on cards in 1994 and started distribution in 1995. Some of the cards are very interesting to say the least and considering the year the cards were made and the incidents in the news we have seen that have mirrored the “Illuminati” game, one has to agree the similarities are eerie.

Big Ben Chinese Euro 2012 Promo.

I have some knowledge of animation, and if you are to create an animation it takes a lot of time and effort, planning and research to create a film. Because of the nature of animation normally it takes a week to create around 10 seconds of film, the film I am about to show you is 3:36 minutes long, therefore it proberly took around 20-22 weeks of production, thats not including pre and post production.
When creating an animation you have to consider every little detail, from colour to design, to style, to theme’s. Creating a short animation can be more complicated than creating a motion picture film watch any independant animation film, then watch the behind the scenes and you will understand the complexity the film production goes into, the passion they hold into their design and what their final outcome will become.
The video you need to watch is a Chinese promotional video on the Euro 2012 games, which was hosted by Poland and Ukraine. This is an advert for Now Tv in China that is advirtising the games in their country, however considering they are no even competing in the games; why would they create an animation that shows the destruction and armed defence of an external threat, either in London or Europe. We have already had the Euro 2012 games, therefore what is left? London Olympic 2012. And Big Ben is featured reguarly throughout the animation.
Could there be an full scale attack depicted in the animation? If so by whom?

Spooks: Code 9 The series starts this Saturday.

Spooks: Code 9 is a spin-off from the award-winning series Spooks. It is set in the near future and is all about a group of British government secret agents who are fighting against the “threat of terrorism” in the wake of an Al-Qaida nuclear attack on London. The series is a commissioned production for the BBC and was created by the independent producer Kudos Films, who have been awarded contracts by the BBC before. They produced the comedy-drama Hustle which is one of the most loaded Conformist creations I’ve ever seen; it even includes Eastenders-style CMI-CAP conflict and dominance.

It was given a commissioning contract by the BBC’s Controller of Fiction, Jane Tranter:…etranter.shtml . About the new series, she said this: “It’s brilliant to have the chance of looking into the future of Spooks with Spooks: Code 9 on BBC3”.  This lady has an interesting past; she joined the BBC in 1985 and began in radio drama then for four years was a floor manager for Eastenders. But this was not Tranter’s only involvement in Conformist propaganda; when she got involved with commissioning she worked on the dramas like Casanova, Casualty, Holby City, Hotel Babylon andRome which are all laced with very virulent Conformist themes. Tranter brought in the original series of Spooks and today is in control of fiction for BBC1, BBC2, BBC3 and BBC4. There are hundreds of independent filmmakers in Britain who have scripts and production designs for all sorts of movies and serials with a huge variety of styles and themes, but nothing gets broadcast on mainstream TV without being commissioned at the highest level by the Network management. Tranter might have her say on what gets broadcast or doesn’t, but senior BBC executives decide whether or not to employ Tranter.

It’s no coincidence that 24 came out in the United States just a few months before the original Spooks did (24 website: ). They not only emerged together, but they’re very similar, promoting fear of terrorists, although Spooks is a bit more subtle. Spooks came out in April 2002 and 24 first screened in November 2001. TV programmes are not made overnight. From the moment the scriptwriter first picks up his pen to the moment the TV viewer tunes in to watch takes a year or two at the very least so both series’ therefore had to be in production when the 9/11 attacks took place, emerging at exactly the right time to strike while the iron was hot, to absorb and process all that fear and dread that was coursing over the world in the aftermath! I’d bet anything that the people behind 9/11 coordinated their efforts with both the BBC and Fox to make sure that both their propaganda series were unleashed at the perfect moment of ripeness when they could have the biggest effect.

 Bin Laden on an Underground Olympic poster.

Is this a game of ‘Where’s the terrorist’ at the Olympic games?
It is indisputable that this is meant to be a terrorist, however why would a terrorist be on a poster in the London Underground for the Olympics?
Will there be an event involving the public transport like there was on the 7/7 bombings the day after that London was going to be the Olympic host for 2012?

Rockefeller Foundation
Scenarios for the Future of Technology
and International Development (2010)

A 2010 Rockefeller Foundation document entitled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development” outlines a scenario which results in the death of 13,000 during the 2012 Olympics.
The first worrying prediction begins in 2012 when ‘the pandemic the world had been anticipating for years’, finally hits, infecting nearly 20 percent of world population and claiming 8 million lives. Due to this pandemic, the Rockefeller Foundation outlines how the public will welcome a more authoritative government and a tighter control across all aspects of life, including Biometric IDs for all citizens. 

“A world of tighter top-down government control and more
authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing
citizen pushback

In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain—originating from wild geese—was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults. The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.
The pandemic blanketed the planet—though disproportionate numbers died in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Central America, where the virus spread like wildfire in the absence of official containment protocols. But even in developed countries, containment was a challenge. The United States’s initial policy of “strongly discouraging” citizens from flying proved deadly in its leniency, accelerating the spread of the virus not just within the U.S. but across borders. However, a few countries did fare better—China in particular. The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement of mandatory quarantine for all citizens, as well as its instant and near-hermetic sealing off of all borders, saved millions of lives, stopping the spread of the virus far earlier than in other countries and enabling a swifter postpandemic recovery.”

An economically unstable and shock-prone world in which governments weaken, criminals thrive, and dangerous innovations emerge. Devastating shocks like September 11, the Southeast Asian tsunami of 2004, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake had certainly primed the world for sudden disasters. But no one was prepared for a world in which large-scale catastrophes would occur with such breathtaking frequency. The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed the “doom decade” for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13,000, was followed closely by an earthquake in Indonesia killing 40,000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the West China Famine, caused by a once-in-a-millennium drought linked to climate change. Not surprisingly, this opening series of deadly asynchronous catastrophes (there were more) put enormous pressure on an already overstressed global economy that had entered the decade still in recession. Massive humanitarian relief efforts cost vast sums of money, but the primary sources—from aid agencies to developed-world governments—had run out of funds to offer. Most nation-states could no longer afford their locked-in costs, let alone respond to increased citizen demands for more security, more healthcare coverage, more social programs and services, and more infrastructure repair. In 2014, when mudslides in Lima buried thousands, only minimal help trickled in, prompting the Economist headline: “Is the Planet Finally Bankrupt?”

Mirroring events in real life, the document also predicts that by 2015 a large share of the US’ armed forces are recalled from countries such as Afghanistan to be stationed domestically, apparently posse comitatus no longer being a concern.
In 2015, the U.S. reallocated a large share of its defense spending to domestic concerns, pulling out of Afghanistan—where the resurgent Taliban seized power once again.
As is happening right now, the document outlines how nations will lose power over their own finances due to massive debt, apparently handing over financial sovereignty to the banking technocrats.
But the document doesn’t just cover these topics. The growing mistrust in vaccines is covered in the Rockefeller document, where they state that due to corruption within national and global bodies such as WHO, “bogus” vaccines will result in mass deaths. According to the paper, the resulting mistrust in vaccines results in a large number of parents who avoid vaccination, which causes infant and child morality to rise to levels not seen since the 1970s.
In the context of weak health systems, corruption, and inattention to standards—either within countries or
from global bodies like the World Health Organization—tainted vaccines entered the public health systems of several African countries. In 2021, 600 children in Cote d’Ivoire died from a bogus Hepatitis B vaccine, which paled in comparison to the scandal sparked by mass deaths from a tainted anti-malarial drug years later. The deaths and resulting scandals sharply affected public confidence in vaccine delivery; parents not just in Africa but elsewhere began to avoid vaccinating their children, and it wasn’t long before infant and child mortality rates rose to levels not seen since the 1970s.
Technology becomes an increasing theater of battle in the Doom Decade, with cyber terrorism and hacking mafia organizations becoming more and more widespread. A worrying prediction outlined in the document covers “Bio-Hacking” where GMO and DoItYourself-Biotech push the Globalist’s love for Transhumanism forward.
Interestingly, not all of the “hacking” was bad. Genetically modified crops (GMOs) and do-it- yourself (DIY) biotech became backyard and garage activities, producing important advances. In 2017, a network of renegade African scientists who had returned to their home countries after working in Western multinationals unveiled the first of a range of new GMOs that boosted agricultural productivity on the continent.
Just as desired by Globalists for over a hundred years, the developed world begins to fall back into feudalism, with the gap between the rich and poor growing to levels not seen for hundreds of years as the middle class becomes extinct.
The rich moving into fortress like compounds, whereas the poor are forced to move into ghettos. By 2030, the document portrays the “developed” and “developing” nations to no longer be relevant or distinguishable.

Agenda 21
The report also outlines several Environmental scenarios stemming from Climate Change which include a new worldwide economic system based on Green Infrastructure by 2018.
The Foundation describes how the resulting collapse of society requires an exodus out of rural areas and into urban environments for survivability, a bizarre take on reality where those living in urban environments are far more restricted in being self sufficient than those in rural areas who have the ability to more easily grow their own food.
Another mirror to Agenda 21 is the documents prediction that only the very rich will have the ability to travel, as prices skyrocket and the restrictions in the name of security reach such high levels that the poor simply cannot travel from their communities.
As with other such documents such as those released by RAND and the MoD in the UK, these predictive papers are a window into the think-tanks who help shape world events. Where the documents are always portrayed as simple predictions, it is important to realize that many such papers have been eerily accurate in the past and thus must be considered when such events unfold in the near future.

Olympic Security Military Takeover
Security for the 2012 Summer Olympics is being provided by several arms of the security forces of the United Kingdom. The security operation is led by the police, with 10,000 officers available, supported by 13,500 members of the armed forces. Naval and air assets, including ships situated in the Thames, Eurofighter jets and surface-to-air missiles, will be deployed as part of the security operation. The cost of security has also increased from 282m to 553m pounds sterling. This will be the biggest security operation Britain has faced for decades. The figure of 13,500 armed forces personnel is more than Britain currently has deployed in Afghanistan. The Metropolitan Police and the Royal Marines performed security exercises in preparation for the Olympics on 19 January 2012, with 50 marine police officers in rigid inflatables and fast response boats, joined by up to 100 military personnel and a Lynx Navy helicopter.

Air defences
Of particular note are the air defences around the Olympic stadium. There are six potential six missile sites, using a mixture of systems, however, the government has not yet decided to deploy ground-based air defence systems during the Games. The sites are at:
Rapier missile site, Blackheath Common.
Rapier missile site, Oxleas Wood, Eltham.
Rapier missile site, William Girling Reservoir, Enfield.
Rapier missile site, Barn Hill in Epping Forest.
Starstreak missile site, Lexington Building, Fairfield Road, in Tower Hamlets.
Starstreak missile site, Fred Wigg Tower in Waltham Forest, east London.

The defences were tested in a large training exercise during 2–10 May 2012, known as Exercise Olympic Guardian, which preceded the operational phase of the campaign. The operation involves Boeing E-3 Sentry from RAF Waddington, VC-10 tanker aircraft from RAF Brize Norton and Typhoon fast jets from 3(F) Sqn operating from RAF Northolt, the first time RAF fighters have been stationed at the West London base since the Second World War. Supporting the air defence role over London will be RAF Pumas based at the TA Centre at Ilford, Fleet Air Arm Sea Kings at Northolt, and Army Air Corps and four FAA Lynxes operating from HMS Ocean, which will be moored on the Thames. Airborne early warning security will be supplemented by Type 101 ground-based radar from 1 Air Control Centre, deployed to Kent, together with three-man Army teams positioned around London, equipped with binoculars.

The Ministry of Defence distributed leaflets to residents of the Lexington building in Bow, announcing that a missile system was to be stationed on top of the water tower. This caused concern to some residents. The Ministry said that probably would use Starstreak missiles and that site evaluations had taken place, but that no final decision had taken place.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) will take control of the entire Airspace for the
South-East of the UK for the duration of the 4wks, this being the first time this has been done since World War II. The MoD will have authorization over the National Air Traffic Services (Nats) & more importantly it’s employees.

Anything involving the MoD always includes The Official Secrets Act of 1989, therefore it’s more than likely that all non-military staff would have been made to sign this legal document preventing them from detailing any concerns to the Media / British public.

BBC News even did a strange piece around the procedures in place by the MoD should a hijacked commercial plane attempt to do a Kamikaze into the Olympic Stadium; it was noted that as soon any unauthorized aircraft would enter the no-fly zone it would be engaged by Fighter Jets within 1miunte.
After what occurred in New York City on September 11th 2001, it’s perfectly understandable to have No-Fly Zones over major Public Events / locations of high importance yet what got my attention was the introduction of Surface-to-Air Missiles?

Missiles & Warships in London: UK Gears Up for Olympics or War?

The capasity for the Olympic games stadium is around 80,000 people, ground security alone will be around 60% of that with around,

6,000 troops outside
12,000 police.

Sonic Weapon Deployed for Olympics

A device that can be used as a sonic weapon will be deployed in London for the Olympics.

The American-built long-range acoustic device (LRad) can be used both as a high-powered loud speaker and to emit an ear-piercing beam of sound.
The Ministry of Defence confirmed that it was among a “broad range of assets” being used by the Armed Forces to provide security during the Games.
A spokesman said it would be used primarily in “loud hailer mode” in order to issue verbal warnings to any boats on the River Thames that were causing concern.
However, the LRad can emit a highly focused beam of sound at a pain-inducing 150 decibels (dB).

In comparison, military jets have a take-off rating of 140 dB while instant perforation of an eardrum can occur at 160 dB.
The US army deployed LRad as a crowd control device during its struggles in post-war Iraq.
More recently, it used a vehicle-mounted system against G20 protesters in Pittsburgh in 2009, driving back US demonstrators with the LRad’s high-pitched sound.
The devices have also been used on cruise liners to ward off Indian Ocean pirate attacks.
Some models are now “man portable” backpacks that can blast alarm warnings at 137 dB, and can be used as land-based loud hailers with a range of 1km.

“As part of the military contribution to the police-led security effort to ensure a safe and secure games, a broad range of assets and equipment is being used by our Armed Forces,” the MoD spokesman said.

“This includes the LRad which will be deployed during the Olympic Games primarily to be used in the loud hailer mode as part of the measures to achieve a maritime stop on the Thames.”

“The UK government is rounding on protesters ahead of this summer’s Olympics, issuing the first court order to ban an Occupy activist from the event. The unprecedented security measures for the Games have been branded as over-the-top,” reports RT.

One such banning order was handed out to 29 year-old Simon Moore, who committed the egregious act of protesting against a practice basketball court being built near the Olympic park in East London. He faces a 5-year jail sentence if he ventures “within 100 yards of Olympic venues, homes of participants, officials or spectators and the route of the Olympic torch.”

“I think it’s insane. I think it shows the prevailing state of consciousness in our governments and the world, which is one of fear – fear and control,” Moore told RT’s Laura Smith.

In rounding up potential troublemakers ahead of the games, the British government is drawing inspiration from none other than Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

In an effort to “clean up” Berlin before the 1936 Olympics, the German Ministry of Interior authorized the chief of the Berlin Police to arrest all undesirables – mainly Gypsies – prior to the Games and have them slung in detention camps. Political enemies were also incarcerated in the camps.

Hitler also used the event to install an early form of CCTV surveillance, but nothing to rival Big Brother’s stranglehold over London which will be put to good use in spotting thought crimes before they happen.

In addition, as Tom Chivers notes, the Olympic torch procession was in fact invented by the Nazis and has nothing to do with ancient Greece. The notorious Olympic rings signal was also created by the Nazis.

Just as in 1936, when the torch procession was met with protests “which were put down with traditional brutality by quaint local security services,” anyone attempting to use the 2012 procession to draw attention to their cause will be similarly treated.

The Olympic games represent little more than an opportunity for the government to showcase its arsenal of draconian technology and stifling security measures which are justified by the threat of terrorism yet in reality are aimed at generating compliance and advancing the police state.

We’re already seeing surface to air missiles placed on top of apartment buildings to ward off Al-Qaeda’s imaginary air force, as well as radiation-firing naked body scanners being put in place for Olympic events.

London 2012 has next to nothing to do with sport and everything to do with the politics of fear – so it’s little surprise that the security preparations surrounding the event are all borrowed from the Nazi template.

G4S, the worlds leading international security solutions group are providing the security personal for the games. They have recently been unable to produce the full amount of guards for the event therefore the government has had to step in and place an extra 3,500 troops in their place.

However there were claims that the security guards were just cheap labourers who have been unemployed for a long time and need the extra cash. These claims seem to come true once you read these reports.

G4S Olympic security recruitment ‘totally chaotic’
Former police sergeant withdrew application to work at London 2012 due to concerns over employment process and pay

A former police sergeant who signed up to work for G4S at the Olympics has told how he withdrew his application over fears the recruitment process was “totally chaotic” and the firm was simply looking for cheap labour.
Robert Brown, who served for 30 years with Kent police, claimed he knew many other retired officers who had decided against working at the Games for the same reasons.
He said he had been given verbal commitments that staff would be paid £14 an hour, but that the contract he received said he would be entitled to £6.05 an hour for working outside the venues, and £8.50 for working inside the stadium.
“It is actually very sad,” Brown said. “I was looking forward to working at this historic event, but it would have been a waste of my time. The public needs to be aware of this.”
Brown has grade one private security qualifications and worked for the Home Office, advising on covert operations, after he left the police.
He said he applied to G4S when the adverts started to appear in November last year. But he was not called for interview in Stratford, east London, until February.

“They were trying to process hundreds of people and we had to fill out endless forms. It was totally chaotic and it was obvious to me that this was being done too quickly and too late,” Brown said.
The first training day involved presentations on how to be polite to members of the public, and follow-up training on how to pat people down.
“The instructors had been given a script that they had to stick to, and if you asked a question, they would not be able to give you an answer. The training was very basic and minimal. Having undergone their training I realised that they only wanted cheap labour.
“My great worry was this was being done before the vetting process had been completed.”
Brown withdrew his application before the third training instalment after receiving the contract about pay.

“At the beginning of the process we were told we could get expenses and some kind of accommodation for people who would be travelling to venues,” he said. “But then I was told there would be no expenses paid and no accommodation either. They were not guaranteeing work over a specific period and the pay was poor. I decided to wash my hands of it. It became obvious that it was becoming a farce.”

After attending the first training session, Brown asked whether he could apply to be a trainer. “But when I went to the interview it was obvious by the questions they were asking that they thought I was over-qualified, so I didn’t get it.
“It has been an awful experience. In my view, they should have started recruiting a year ago to get the numbers they needed. I am 63 years old and I regarded this as a unique chance to get involved in an historic event. It’s an awful situation.”
G4S said its security training was graded and that it lasted from four to 14 days, depending on the role.
“In this case, he may have pulled out before the training had been completed,” a spokesman said.
G4S insisted it would pay a minimum of £8.50 an hour during the Games

The RAF will use “lethal force” if the Olympics are threatened, the Games air security commander has said.

G4S’s Olympic struggles should derail the drive towards more privatisation

Whisleblower, Ben Fellows.

Ben Fellows, An undercover journalist going by the pseudonym ‘Lee Hazledean’ has blown the whistle on astounding revelations about how he infiltrated the G4S – the company responsible for security at the London Olympics – and discovered shocking plans for the evacuation of London, 200,000 ‘casket linings’ being on standby, along with botched security procedures that leave the games wide open to attack. Fearing for his safety, he revealed his true name, Ben Fellows. Fellows has worked with news agencies on hard-hitting subjects, but when he approached the mainstream media with his bombshell story, they showed no interest. He’ll talk about his training experience with G4S, the private company providing security for the Olympics and report on suspicious activities.

According to the BBC, former retired British Army infantry commander Colonel Richard Kemp said the timing of the announcement was “bizarre”.

It does not seem bizarre to the UK Column, however, as it was clear from our conversations with G4S over the last couple of weeks that they were more concerned about keeping Ben Fellows’ allegations quiet than the allegations themselves. G4S’ media team claimed that his allegations were 99% false, and that the UK Column should be very careful about publicising them.

To date however, and despite numerous telephone calls, G4s have refused to make any formal comment about Fellows’ allegations, and have so far not taken up our offer to join us on UK Column Live for a right of reply.

Ben Fellows’ is an investigative journalist specialising in undercover work. His CV includes work for the Cook Report. He went undercover to persue his “Olympic dream” as G4S likes to call it, to become a member of the security team. However, he soon discovered a host of failings in the training. His allegation include:

Security officers only receive 4 days training in total
Uniforms going missing
Photos takes on secure areas
Foreign troops deployed through Woolwich Baracks
Security scanners turned off at peak times
No proper training for x-ray scanners
Experienced and trained ex-military personnel not made team leaders, preferring to give the role to inexperienced trainees
No training given in the evacuation procedure for the stadium, but were told that they will be involved in the evacuation of London
The G4S contract is worth £535 million.

(Taken from an article at

Hazledean’s interview with Tony Gosling, editor and host of BCFM’s Friday Drivetime, has gone viral on the web over the last few days. Hazledean is an undercover journalist for a television program in London and has worked with news agencies on hard-hitting subjects, but when he approached the mainstream media with his bombshell story, they showed no interest.

When Hazledean asked Channel 4 News Home Affairs Correspondent Andy Davies if he would run the story, Davies said he wasn’t interested and days later Channel 4 ran a puff piece about G4S which portrayed the organization as competent and trustworthy.

“I sent him an email, I called, he wasn’t interested and he said there’s a media blackout on this kind of story, that nobody would be interested in running it,” said Hazledean.

In the interview, Hazledean divulges how he merely had to fill in an application form to get a job with G4S, the private company providing security for the Olympics, that he underwent no background check whatsoever, and that his personal references were not checked.

Employees are given just two days of training to run airport-style security checkpoints which include body scanners, which Hazledean said “would be turned off completely” at peak times, meaning terrorists could just walk straight into the event with ammunition or explosives and have an excellent chance of remaining undetected.

“In fact, I was asked to be a would-be terrorist on the final training day and I was given a knife, a gun and an IED, and on all three occasions throughout the day I got through the metal detector and I also got through the x-ray machine scanner,” said Hazledean, adding that terrorists could quite easily stage a “massacre” given the lax nature of the security.

“They’re not training them properly…it’s quite open to a terrorist attack very easily and I don’t say that lightly,” said Hazledean, adding that he witnessed G4S members doing drug deals while training classes were taking place, while others were taking surveillance photos on their cellphones of supposedly secure areas. Hazledean said a lot of the security staff were poorly qualified and that many of them could barely speak English.

Hazledean also revealed how the large contingent of soldiers being brought into London for the Olympic Games included “a lot of UN troops being posted in and around London,” including American and German troops.

The whistleblower also revealed how unauthorized personnel were being handed G4S uniforms and that uniforms had been stolen.

Hazledean’s most chilling revelation was how he learned about preparations to evacuate London and how, “The security guards used for the Olympics will be at the forefront of getting the public out of London.”

“They seem quite serious about it, they’ve spent a lot of time on this,” said Hazledean, noting how G4S spent two hours talking about the evacuation of London in comparison to just half an hour talking about security screening procedures for the Olympics itself.

The whistleblower also noted how the 100,000 plus troops that would be stationed in London during the Olympics would be enough to carry out such a large scale evacuation.

Another chilling facet Hazledean learned was that 200,000 casket linings (temporary coffins) were being shipped in to London that can hold four bodies each. The whistleblower expressed his amazement at why security guards working on mundane screening procedures would need to be told such information.

The whistleblower also revealed how he was told Predator drones would be circling London in readiness for terrorist attacks, and that G4S employees were shown a video of a drone killing a group of people in Afghanistan.

Hazledean noted how G4S leaders saw the public as “the scum of the earth” and also told their employees that the police had no authority over them. He also related how one of the leaders told him that an event after the Olympics would be a “defining moment” for London but when pressed, refused to divulge what she meant.

Hazledean is not the first to blow the whistle on G4S. Earlier this month, data input clerk Sarah Hubble revealed that she was fired by G4S after complaining that G4S was cutting corners in their security preparations for the Olympics and that she herself had not been vetted.

Speaking with Infowars, Hazledean said that he had been making contingency plans for if his life was put in danger or if he became a target for the authorities in any other way after blowing the whistle on the scandal.

Asked about a meme circulating the web that conspiracy theories about a false flag attack occurring at the London Olympics are being deliberately allowed to proliferate in order to make ‘truthers’ look paranoid after nothing happens, Hazledean stressed that merely getting the story out was necessary as it could derail any planned attack.

In an interview with Radio Host, Alex Jones at InfoWars and Prisonplant, at the time under a different name ‘Lee Hasledean’ talks about his events with the training. Near the end of the interview he talks about how the people training him said that they are preparing them all for a spectacular event AFTER the games. He questioned this and got the response that the Olympics will be something for the whole world to remember and will be a pinnacle moment in London’s history. He has also heard from over sources that London could be in a total lockdown and central London will be evacuated.
But considering as G4S couldn’t employ enough people for the games anyway it does seem likely that they have just let anyone through the door to make the numbers up.
One question that come to mind when I saw this news was, if G4S couldn’t get enough of the security trained in time, what types of people have they employed in the first place?

One thing is clear though, London is going to be the most securitized event in Britain’s, I would even say, the worlds history. They have spent an enormous amount of money into the security and the controversy of the whole subject has been at the forefront of the mainstream media. If anyone wanted to even think about setting off a bomb, they would be taken down with in seconds. It seems as though the 11 mile Olympic park is a facility that could be turned into a concentration camp with controlling who goes in and who goes out. With cameras, weapons and all eyes watching the game and personal on the ground, if there is anything that happens in the two whole months of the games, it has to be a false flag event.

The Enchantment of the Olympics and the Earthstars Matrix 
2012 07 26

By Ishtar Babilu Dingir |

Amid concerns about a possible false flag attack on the Olympic stadium, what hasn’t yet been mentioned is that the Olympic Park ~ as well as the whole of the Greater London area ~ is protected by a pair of nine-mile-high giant spirits who are quite visible to the naked eye, if you know where to look.

The Olympics Games are being held on the festival of the god Lugh/Lug/Lud, whose visage can be seen engraved into landscape, guarding the east of London. There is also an enormous unicorn that is plainly visible, guarding London to the west ~ just as the lion and the unicorn appear in the Coat of Arms for Great Britain.

The landscape giants of the lion and the unicorn are part of the Enchantment of London and the Earthstars Matrix, which appears to have been put into place long before even the Templars came into these lands, in the days of the Druids.

The Lion and the Unicorn

The Olympics is always held on the same dates, beginning 27th July, and it coincides with the time that the ancient Celts (and Gauls) would call Lughnasadh ~ the festival at which they honoured their sun god, Lugh/Lug/Lud. Lud is the British equivalent of the Greek Zeus or the Roman Jupiter.

Known as Lugh in Ireland, he was Lud in England of which the main capital city, before the Romans, was known as Caer Lud (Lud’s Town, now London). Around the eighth century BCE, the Britons built a temple to Arianrhod, Lud’s female counterpart, by the western city gate on a hill. They called it Luds Gate, but we now know it as Ludgate Hill.

The spring of his river, the river Lud/Lea, is actually within an earthwork enclosure known as Waulud’s Bank, which is a landmark along the St Michael ley line. It flows into the Lea Valley and then just before Temple Mills (formerly a Templar stronghold) it loops round to surround the whole of the Olympic Park like a moat.

Lud is one of the guardians of the sacred city of London, the other being the unicorn, and both can be seen like huge landscape giants ~ Lud as the male kingly sun god lion (Lleu means ‘lion’ in Welsh) guarding London to the east, and the unicorn as the intuitive female moon goddess guarding the west.

It’s difficult to make out their bodies now that suburban Greater London has become so built up, but their heads and forelegs are quite distinct. On top of that, Lud the solar lion is wearing a crown, just as he appears in the coat of arms for Great Britain.

The unicorn to the west

The lion to the east

The crowned lion’s head

Chris Street has written about these landscape giants in the chapter entitled Guardians of the Sacred City in the book Legendary London and the Spirit of Place, edited by Anthony Thorley.

“The head, back and mane of the Lion is defined by various features, including the A113 road from Passingford Bridge and Chigwell to Woodford. Meandering alongside it, virtually all the way, is the river Roding, adding a curly mane. The lion’s face follows the B175 road from Passingford Bridge through Stapleford Abbots to Romford.

“The eye is in the area of Battles Hall and St Mary’s Stapleford. The lion’s mouth is in the area of Havering at Bower, and its chest is the A112 through Chadwell Heath. The paws rest comfortably in Dagenham, defined by parts of the A125 and A111.

“The kingly stature of the lion is emphasised by the surprising fact that some of the old paths, tracks and boundary lines above its head can actually be linked up in the shape of very regal crown, remarkably similar to the one on the real crest.”

There are lots of Red Lion pubs marking the silhouette of the lion, and the horn of the Unicorn is exactly at a place called Horn Hill.

So is it just coincidence that images of a lion and a unicorn can be made out so clearly in the landscape around the London? According to Chris Street, no, because the images form a meaningful part of a remarkable discovery known as the London Earthstars Matrix.

This London Earthstars Matrix is also emblazoned on the London landscape but in a different way to the lion and the unicorn ~ yet all three are fundamentally connected.

The Earthstars of London refer to a ground-breaking piece of work in which it has been discovered that the sacred sites of London are not distributed at random. They connect in a vast and complex geometric pattern or matrix which includes many old but lesser known parish churches and sacred hills, as well as Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Southwark Cathedral and the Tower of London.

Says Chris Street:

“Two of the most important ley alignments in the capital pass through the Earthstars’ lion and unicorn ….

“Running through the lion is a royal ley line which combines a solar energy path aligned to midsummer sunrise …

It is also known as the Coronation Leyline, because it is in direct alignment with three sites where the kings of Great Britain have been crowned.

“The Coronation line runs through the King’s Stone at Kingston-upon-Thames (where seven Saxon kings were crowned), and St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey …

“The unicorn has an appropriate alignment of churches linked to the lunar divine feminine aspect. Most of its churches are dedicated to Mary, who is often depicted standing on a crescent moon, as the Christian version of the virgin moon goddess archetype.

“And at the heart of the unicorn is Harrow-on-the-Hill, where the St Mary the Virgin church is at the centre of an extraordinary pentragram of sacred leys and holy hills all radiating at a perfect 72 degrees.”

The five points of the Harrow-on-the-Hill star are Horsendon Hill, Barn Hill in Wembley, Belmont Hill in Stanmore, Dabb’s Hill in Ruislip and St John’s in Pinner.

Christopher Wren 

Anthony Thorley says it’s evident from earlier drafts of his plans that he never got to use that Christopher Wren knew of the Earthstars Matrix when he was given the commission to rebuild the sacred sites of London after the Great Fire.

Anthony has devoted a whole chapter to this subject, Sir Christopher Wren’s Secret London in his book Legendary London and the Spirit of Place.

In all, the Earthstars Matrix comprises nineteen designs ~ mostly pentagrams, hexagrams, circles and triangles.None of them are separate. Each connect to the whole. Chris Street says that it is a recognisable temple ground plan, but on a vast scale and covering more than 400 square miles of Greater London.

And this giant sacred but hidden temple is protected on both sides by the holy protector guardians of Great Britain, the lion and the unicorn, as shown on the royal coat of arms.

If you have been following my other posts you many have found a trend that I believe that the Olympics has a huge powerful hidden agenda and I believe this event will be used as a mind control and possibly a false flag terrorist event. I’m also believe this could be used to channel various types of energies into the human consciousness, energies that has an agenda relating to religion and occult secret societies. Over the last week I’ve been trying to find the significance of the cauldron and the meaning and history of this ritualistic tool used in many religions and literature. I’m interested into why we use this tool for a world wide sporting event called the Olympics. We have had 70 days of taking the torch around the country, this brings forth a enormous about of spiritual energy with it. On one level we can presume that the torch is simply a tool to get the whole nation geared up for the Olympics, however is this was the case then the first use of the torch wouldn’t have been used as a propaganda technique for the Nazi’s in the 1936 Olympic games.
The torch is first brought to the country via virgin women in Greece, it is undoubtedly a symbolic ritual. If you have some knowledge of the meaning and history of the Olympic Cauldron, Flame and any other symbolism please tell me I’ll be more than happy to read through. If this is the first blog of mine you are reading please read my blog titled, The Hidden Meaning of the London Olympics 2012, also many other blogs relating to this subject.

King Arthur in Legend: The Holy Grail

The Holy GrailThe Tradition: The Holy Grail was a vessel used by Christ at the Last Supper. Given to his grand-uncle, St. Joseph of Arimathea, it was used by him to collect Christ’s blood and sweat while Joseph tended him on the Cross. After Christ’s death, Joseph was apparently imprisoned in a rock tomb similar to the one he had given for the body of his grand-nephew. Left to starve, he was sustained for several years by the power of the Grail which provided him with fresh food and drink every morning. Later, St. Joseph travelled to Britain with his family and several followers. He settled at Ynys Witrin (Glastonbury), but the Grail was taken to Corbenic where it was housed in a spectacular castle, guarded always by the Grail Kings, descendants of Joseph’s daughter, Anna (Enygeus) and her husband, Brons.

Centuries later, the location of the Great Castle of Corbenic became forgotten. At the Court of King Arthur, however, it was prophesied that the Grail would one day be rediscovered by a descendantof St. Joseph: the best knight in the land, the only man capable of sitting in the mysterious Siege Perilous. When such a man arrived in the form of Galahad, the son of Lancelot, along with a miraculous, though brief, vision of the Grail itself, a quest to find this holiest of relics began. Through many adventures and many years, the Knights of the Round Table crossed Britain from one end to another in their search. Perceval (Peredyr) discovered the castle in a land that was sickly like its spear-wounded King. When entertained by this “Fisher” or “Grail King”, however, he failed to ask of the grail and left empty-hand. Lancelot next reached Corbenic, but was prevented from entering because of he was an adulterer. Finally Galahad arrived. He was permitted entry to the Grail Chapel and allowed to gaze upon the great cup. His life became complete and together grail and man were lifted up to heaven.

The Names: The Holy Grail first appears as simply “a grail” in the works of Chrétien deTroyes. The word is probably derived from the Old French word graal meaning a “broad and capacious dish or salver”. Though usually thought of as being a cup or chalice, the Grail has indeed been variously described as a platter, dish, a cornucopia, horn of plenty or even a book or a stone.

The name of the Castle of Corbenic has competing explanations. Old Welsh Cors, meaning “Horn,” the Horn of Plenty as the Grail is sometimes described may have become confused with the Old French Corps, producing Corps-Benoit meaning “Holy Body,” ie. the Body of Christ. More likely, however, is the suggestion that Corbenic stems from Corbin-Vicus. The ending is almost certainly derived from the Latin for “Settlement,” while Corben is a French translation of the word Crow or Raven: Bran in Welsh. This was also a man’s name and, as Brons, he appears as St. Joseph’s son-in-law, one of the first Grail Kings. Hence Corbenic was “Bran’s Settlement”. It may be identical to the home of Lancelot’s father, Caer-Benwick.

Ancient Origins: The quest for a divine vessel was a popular theme in Arthurian legend long before medieval writers introduced the Holy Grail to British mythology. It appears in the Mabinogion tale of Culhwch and Olwen, but particularly well-known is the story of the Preiddeu Annwfn or “Spoils of the Otherworld” as recounted by Taliesin. Arthur and his warriors sail off to the Celtic Otherworld to capture the pearl-rimmed Cauldron of Annwfn: like the grail it was a giver of plenty, but also of prophecy. It was at last discovered at Caer-Siddi (or Wydyr), an island bound castle of glass, where it was guarded by nine divine maidens; but the ensuing perils were too much for even Arthur’s men. The mission was abandoned and only seven of their number returned home.

Celtic Cauldrons were used in ceremonial feasting as early as the Late Bronze Age. Ritual deposits in Llyn Fawr (Glamorgan) included such vessels, though the best known example is the Gundestrup Cauldron found in the peat bogs of Jutland (Denmark). Highly decorated with portraits of many Celtic deities, this vessel would once have held up to twenty-eight and a half gallons of liquid. These finds clearly point to the religious importance of cauldrons, as found in the Arthurian stories and even older Celtic mythological parallels.

The magic Otherworld vessel was the Cauldron of Ceridwen, the Celtic Goddess of Inspiration. She is remembered today in the archetypal hideous cauldron-stirring witch. She once set about brewing a drink of knowledge and wisdom for her hideous son, but her kitchen-boy, Gwion, accidentally tasted the concoction, preventing anyone else from benefitting from its affects. A great battle of wills ensued, for Gwion now held all the knowledge to escape the Goddess’ wrath. The two changed themselves into various animals in an attempt to outwit each other before Gwion was swallowed whole as a grain of wheat. He was eventually reborn as the great bard, Taliesin!

The cauldron then reappears in the story of Bran Fendigaid (the Blessed), not only as a vessel of knowledge and plenty, but also of rebirth. The great Celtic warrior God, Bran, obtained his life-giving vessel from a giantess (or thinly veiled Ceridwen) who had been expelled from a Lake in Ireland. The Emerald Isle here personifies the Celtic Otherworld. The magic vessel would restore to life the body of any dead warrior placed within it: a scene apparently depicted on the Gundestrup Cauldron. Bran’s sister marries the King of Ireland and they are given the cauldron as a wedding gift. However, when hostilities between the two countries break out, Bran travels across the ocean to regain this dangerous prize. He is eventually successful, but is wounded by a poisoned spear and, like Arthur, only seven of his men return home. The name, the castle (already discussed), the wound, the mystic vessel, the journey: Bran Fendigaid is clearly Brons, the Grail King, son-in-law of Joseph of Arimathea.

   The pentagram has long been associated with mystery and magic. It is
   the simplest form of star shape that can be drawn unicursally - with a
   single line - hence it is sometimes called the Endless Knot. Other
   names are the Goblin's Cross, the Pentalpha, the Witch's Foot, the
   Devil's Star and the Seal of Solomon (more correctly attributed to the

   It has long been believed to be a potent protection against evil and
   demons, hence a symbol of safety, and was sometimes worn as an amulet
   for happy homecoming. The old folk-song : "Green Grow the
   Rushes,O!" refers to the use of the pentagram above doors and
   windows in the line: "Five is the symbol at your door."

   The potency and associations of the pentagram have evolved throughout
   history. Today it is an ubiquitous symbol of neo-pagans with much
   depth of magickal and symbolic meaning.   

The Pentagram through History.

   The pentagram symbol today is ascribed many meanings and deep
   significance, though much of this is very recent. However, it has been
   used throughout history and in many contexts:
     * The earliest known use of the pentagram dates back to around
       3500BC at Ur of the Chaldees in Ancient Mesopotamia where it was
       symbolic of imperial power.
     * Amongst the Hebrews, the symbol was ascribed to Truth and to the
       five books of the Pentateuch. It is sometimes, incorrectly, called
       the Seal of Solomon (see Hexagram).
     * In Ancient Greece, it was called the Pentalpha, being
       geometrically composed of five A's. Unlike earlier civilizations,
       the Greeks did not generally attribute other symbolic meanings to
       the letters of their alphabet, but certain symbols became
       connected with Greek letter shapes or positions (eg Gammadion,
     * To the Gnostics, the pentagram was the 'Blazing Star'.
     * For the Druids, it was a symbol of Godhead.
     * In Egypt, it was a symbol of the 'underground womb'.
     * The Pagan Celts ascribed the pentagram to the underground goddess
     * Medieval Christians attributed the pentagram to the Five Wounds of
     * The Christian Emperor Constantine I used the pentagram, together
       with the chi-rho symbol in his seal and amulet. 

     * In the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the pentagram
       was Sir Gawain's glyph, inscribed in gold on his shield,
       symbolizing the five knightly virtues.
     * In Medieval times, the 'Endless Knot' was a symbol of Truth and
       was a protection against demons. It was used as personal
       protection and to guard windows and doors.
     * The pentagram with one point upwards symbolized summer; with two
       points upwards, it was a sign for winter.

          + During the long period of the Inquisition, the pentagram was
            seen to symbolize a Goat's Head. In the purge on witches, the
            horned god Pan became equated with the Devil (a Christian
            concept) and the pentagram, for the first time in history
            became a symbol of 'evil' and was called the Witch's Foot.

     * In the emergence of Hermeticism, graphical symbolism became very
       important. The concept of the microcosmic world of Man as
       analogous to the macrocosm, the greater universe of spirit and
       elemental matter is a part of traditional occult teaching in both
       western and eastern philosophies. "As above, so below."
       The pentagram, the 'Star of the Microcosm', symbolized Man within
       the microcosm, representing in analogy the Macrocosmic universe.

           The upright pentagram bears some resemblance to the
       shape of man with his legs and arms outstretched; indeed an
       illustration attributed to Agrippa or to Tycho Brae (1582)
       illustrates the similarity of proportion in this image, showing
       the five planets and the moon at the center point - the genitalia.
       There are other illustrations of the period by Robert Fludd and
       Leonardo da Vinci showing geometrical relationships of man to the

          + Later, the pentagram came to be symbolic of the relationship
            of the head to the four limbs and hence of the pure
            concentrated essence of anything (or the spirit) to the four
            traditional elements of matter. - [Quintessence]

     * In Freemasonry, Man as Microprosopus was associated with the
       five-pointed Seal of Solomon. The symbol was used, interlaced and
       upright for the sitting Master of the Lodge. The geometric
       properties and structure of the Endless Knot were appreciated and
       symbolically incorporated into the 72 degree angle of the
     * The women's branch of freemasonry uses the five pointed 'Eastern
       Star' as its emblem. Each point commemorates a heroine of biblical

          + No graphical illustration of any association of the pentagram
            with evil appears until the nineteenth century. Eliphas Levi
            illustrates the upright pentagram of microcosmic man beside
            an inverted pentagram with the goat's head of Baphomet.

       In ritual magick the sign has long been used as a ritual flourish
       of the athame to symbolize invoking or banishing in respect to
       elemental associations.

     * In the 1940's Gerald Gardner adopted the pentagram with two points
       upward as the sigil of second degree initiation in the newly
       emergent, neo-pagan rituals of witchcraft, later to become known
       as Wicca. The one-point upward pentagram together with the upright
       triangle symbolized third degree initiation.
     * The pentagram was also inscribed on the altar pentacle, it's
       points symbolizing the three aspects of the Goddess plus the two
       aspects of the God.
     * It was not until the late 1960's that the pentagram again became
       an amuletic symbol to be worn and has since then become firmly
       established as a common neo-pagan and Wiccan symbol, acquiring
       many aspects of mystique and associations that are today often
       considered to be ancient folk-lore!

   Nevertheless, the potency of a symbol has more to do with its
   associations and its commonality than with its antiquity and the
   pentagram today is ubiquitous amongst neo-pagans.

Symbolic Meanings of the Pentagram.

     * The number '5' has always been regarded as mystical and magical,
       yet essentially 'human'.
          + We have five fingers/toes on each limb extremity.
          + We commonly note five senses - sight, hearing, smell, touch
            and taste.
          + We perceive five stages or initiations in our lives - e.g..
            birth, adolescence, coitus, parenthood and death. (There are
            other numbers/ initiations/stages/attributions).
     * The number 5 is associated with Mars. It signifies severity,
       conflict and harmony through conflict.
     * In Christianity, five were the wounds of Christ on the cross.
     * There are five pillars of the Muslim faith and five daily times of
     * Five were the virtues of the medieval knight - generosity,
       courtesy, chastity, chivalry and piety as symbolized in the
       pentagram device of Sir Gawain.
     * The Wiccan Kiss is Fivefold - feet, knees, womb, breasts, lips -
       Blessed be.

   The number 5 is prime. The simplest star - the pentagram- requires
   five lines to draw and it is unicursal; it is a continuous loop.

   Expressing the saying "Every man and every woman is a star",
   we can juxtapose Man on a pentagram with head and four limbs at the
   points and the genitalia exactly central. This is Man in microcosm,
   symbolizing our place in the Macrocosm or universe and the
   Hermetic/Tantric philosophy of associativity - "As above, so below". 

   The geometric proportions of the regular pentagram are those of the
   Golden Section.
     * The Golden Proportion is one beloved of artists since Renaissance
       times, being those of a rectangle considered most pleasing in
       proportion. Here, the ratio of the lengths of the two sides is
       equal to the ratio of the longer side to the sum of the two sides.
       Or :
       a/b = b/a+b = a+b/a+2b = a+2b/2a+3b = 2a+3b/3a+5b ....etc.
     * If a square is added to the long side of a golden rectangle, a
       larger golden rectangle is formed. Continuing this progression
       forms the basis for a nautilus spiral. 
     * The ratio of the distance between two points of a pentagram to its
       total width is in the golden proportion, as is the ratio of the
       height above the horizontal bar to that below, as is the ratio of
       a central part of a line to the outer part.
     * This ratio forms the foundation of the Fibonacci series of numbers
       1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144, etc where each number is formed by
       adding the previous two numbers.
     * The Fibonacci series is much found in nature in the pattern
       arrangement of flower heads and leaves and many flower heads and
       fruits themselves exhibit a fivefold symmetry.   

     * The pentagram has long been believed to be a potent protection
       against evil, a symbol of conflict that shields the wearer and the
     * The pentagram has five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive,
       protective pentagon at the center.
     * There are five elements, four of matter (earth, air, fire and
       water) and THE quintessential - spirit. These may be arrayed
       around the pentagrams points.
          + The word 'quintessential' derives from this fifth element -
            the spirit.
     * Single point upwards signifies the spirit ruling matter (mind
       ruling limbs); is a symbol of rightness. With two points up and
       one (spirit) downwards, subservient, the emphasis is on the carnal
       nature of Man.
     * Tracing a path around the pentagram, the elements are placed in
       order of density - spirit (or aether). fire, air, water, earth.
       Earth and fire are basal, fixed; air and water are free, flowing.
     * These point attributions are used in ritually inscribing, as a
       flourish of the hands or the athame, different forms of pentagram
       for invoking or banishing (grounding) each of the elementals
       according to the nature of the ritual. The line traces as
       illustrated for earth (the last stroke is optional).

   Another way of seeing this path is as Man's spiritual journey through
   evolution. The spark of Life descending from God, the divine source of
   life to the simplest embryonic form (earth), rising to flow (water -
   air) on our plane of existence (compare with the intonation of the AUM
   mantra), then again descending to the fire of purification before
   again rising as a divine spark to find again his spiritual source.

     * The pentagram may be shown as an interlaced line symbolic of the
       web-weaving power of magick. The descending spirit-earth line may
       pass under (male) or over (female) the water-air line to give two
       slightly differing forms.
     * A pentagram may be open, without a surrounding circle. This is the
       active form symbolizing an outgoing of oneself, prepared for
       conflict, aware, active. (One wearing an open pentagram must be
       physically aware of the danger of sharp points sticking in their
       skin from time to time !)
     * A circle around a pentagram contains and protects. It is the
       passive form implying spiritual containment of the magic circle.
       The circle also represents eternity and infinity.

    Inverted Pentagram
     * The pentagram may be inverted with one point down. The implication
       is of spirit subservient to matter, of man subservient to his
       carnal desires.
     * The inverted pentagram has come to be seen by many pagans as
       representing the dark side and it is abhorred as an evil symbol.
       Fundamental Christians, indeed, see any form of pentagram as such.
     * However, these are recent developments and the inverted pentagram
       is the symbol of Gardnerian second degree initiation, representing
       the need of the witch to learn to face the darkness within so that
       it may not later rise up to take control.

     * The center of a pentagram implies a sixth formative element -
       love/will which controls from within, ruling matter and spirit by
       Will and the controlled magickal direction of sexual energies.
       This is another lesson of initiation.   

   In physical form, the pentagram may be worn as an amulet - as
   jewelry - pendant, ring, earrings, buckle, etc.... (lionel pepper) 

 - The earliest recorded use of the pentagram as a mystical symbol was by
   the Gnostics, who called it the Blazing Star.  It was also considered by
   Christians during the middle ages to be a symbol of the Five Wounds of
   Christ, and used as a protective glyph, generally as a variation on the
   Seal of Solomon (a Star of David within a circle).

 - The association of the pentagram with non-Christian belief, and its
   modern "elemental" analysis, were evidently introduced during the
   revival of occultism in the 17th and 18th centuries.  The Masons and
   similar groups such as the OTO took it up--for example, A.E. Waite is
   the person who introduced the symbol into the Tarot deck, replacing
   the traditional suit of Coins.

 - The use of the "inverted" pentagram to denote evil is a quite recent
   usage, and first appears in the works of Eliphas Levi.  He is also the
   source of the "goat's head" glyph.  Before this, neither orientation
   had evil connotations per se.

 - The modern pagan movement picked up the pentagram as part of a general
   borrowing from earlier "occult" usage, and Wicca in particular has
   taken it up as an explicit denotational symbol, similar to the
   cross, the Thor's hammer, and so on.

According to my own research so far:

The categorization of the "inverted" (one-point-down) pentagram as
"evil" vs.  the "upright" (one-point-up) pentagram as "good"
originates in the writings of Eliphas Levi in the 19th Century, most
notably the works "The History of Magic" and "Doctrine and Ritual of
Transcendental Magic."  He is also the originator of the now-infamous
goat's head glyph.  Eliphas Levi (actually the pen name of Alphonse
Louis Constant, a French Catholic deacon) was one of a number of
writers who constituted a reaction against 18th century rationalism.
His works have had a lasting effect on French magical traditions, and
were instrumental in the development of the Tarot as a serious tool of
Hermetic magic, despite its humble beginnings in Gypsy fortune-telling.

Levi was the first Hermetic writer to assign an elemental (or perhaps
more accurately, alchemical) meaning to the pentagram, which before
him had been used principally as a protective glyph denoting the five
wounds of Christ (and as such, occurs in both orientations in Gothic
cathedrals and cloisters all across Europe)).

Now, I would be more than interested to hear about evidence that
contradicts the derivation I give above; however, I have yet to come
across any "evil" connotations of the pentagram, or the orientation
thereof, that predate Eliphas Levi (who lived from 1810-1875).

This is not to say that his analysis is nonsense--far otherwise, in
fact.  If you apply his elemental attributions to the points of the
figure, the orientation does indeed profoundly affect the resulting
connotations.  However, it is a mistake to believe that this
interpretation is any more "traditional" than 150 or so years, or for
that matter particularly pagan.  It has, however, been picked up by
modern paganism, and has been (comparatively speaking) neglected by
modern hermeticism, which has focused primarily on the Tarot and the

This was probably derived from Tycho Brahe's _Calendarium Naturale
Magicum Perpetuum..._, the ancestor of _Liber 777_ and many other works
of that sort.  Although the Calendarium does not show a pentagram
marked with the elements, the row "Quinarius denari ..." shows all
the details: a pentagram with human body imposed, Hebrew for YHSVH,
and the elements associated.  That's 1582 e.v.  Other, later sources
also have the material.  Looking to either the _Picatrix_ or the
writings of Petro de Abano might turn up earlier European usage. (Bill Heidrick)

In the book Symbols of t Prehistoric Mesopotamia by Beatrice Laura Goff , the
pentagram is shown and related to the Uruk (Biblical)Eriech)period of
Mesopotamian civilization (3500 B.C>.E.).  This sign is located on potsherds
in the location of Uruk (near the mouth of the Gulf), and is in the company of
signs relating to the beginning of written language.  In the book Symbols of
the Gods o in Mesopotamian Art by E.Douglas Van Buren, we find the Pentagram
belonging to the archaic period UrukIV, and more frequently on Jemdet
Nasr(3100-2900B.C>.E.) and Proto-Elamite tablets (3000-2500B.C.E.).  The title
suggested for the sign is revealing, UB , 'explained as "the very sign used in
the royal inscriptions to designate, in a somewhat obscuretitle, a power
extending to the 'four corners of the world''.  These points are the four
corners of the compass. (Frater ABZU)

To say "the pentagram was considered an evil symbol by the Christians" is
a little ... well, general.

I haven't searched the whole corpus of Christian literature, and tallied
up all the mentions of pentagrams-good and pentagrams-bad, but I would
like to point out that (a) the pentagram occurs in "Sir Gawain and the Green
Knight," and not as an evil symbol; (b) the pentagram was often regarded
as emblematic of the Five Wounds of Christ; and (c) the pentagram was
not an evil symbol for Pythagoreans, and there was a strong current
of admiration, in Christian tradition (though not a unanimous one), for
"noble pagans" -- Pythagoras, Plato, various Stoics, Plotinus, and so
on.  A good example of the ambivalence in Christian tradition toward
writers and thinkers is Dante's treatment of Virgil.

Can anyone come up with a specific text originating from the first
thousand years of Christianity denouncing the pentagram as an innately
evil symbol?  I wouldn't be surprised, myself, if the first occurrence
of such texts was some time within the past two centuries.  Or five


The pentagram was used early on by the Xian church (particularly in the 
East).  Their use was, of course, point-up.

The inverted cross was also used by the Xians.  It is known in 
traditional mythology as St. Peter's cross.  Peter did not believe he was 
worthy enough to die in the same way that Jesus had, so he begged to 
crucified upside-down.  (Or so the legend goes.) (VonDraco)

There is, of course, the "standard" pagan reply:  the five points 
represent the five elements.  It is "positive" if it is point-up because 
it represents the mastery of mind/spirit over mere matter.  It is 
"negative" if worn point down because spirit is immersed in or ruled by 
the physical rather than mental plane.  (CUE: End of standard reply.)

Now for some other possibilities that are somewhat less standard.  The 
five stages of humanity (or the five stages of life, if you prefer) are 
represented.  Speaking purely in terms of age, there are: Babyhood, 
Adolescence, Adulthood, Middle Age, and Old Age.  In terms of life 
occurrences, there are: Birth, Initiation, Love, Repose, and Death.

In Egypt the five-pointed star represented the underground womb.  To the 
pagan Celts, the pentagram was particularly associated with Morrigan, the 
underground goddess.

To Hermetic magicians (and many others now), the five-pointed star 
represented Man in the Microcosm, with his head at the top, hands out to 
the sides, and legs below.  His genitalia were in the center of the 

To Christians (yes, they managed to get a hold of this symbol, too) the 
pentagram represented the five wounds of Christ at the crucifixion.

In ancient Greece, the Pythagoreans called this symbol the Pentalpha, 
since it is five capital 'A' figures interlaced.

As for the point-down pentagram being "evil", there are a couple of 
different answers to that.  Yes, modern culture has led to the popular 
notion that this is an evil symbol.  However, It is also a representative 
of the Horned God.  Yes, it looks like a goat's head.  The Horned God's 
most common five forms are represented by the points: human, goat, ram, 
stag and bull.

Given the Christian propensity to turn the Horned God into the Devil, is 
it any wonder that this seems to be associated with the Christian 

I understand that this symbol also has some Qabalistic significance, but 
I am pitifully ignorant of the ways of the Qabala.  Perhaps someone 
else could enlighten you about that part of it.

Another important thing to remember is that the pentagram is a 
unicursal figure.  That is, it can be drawn without lifting pen/cil from 
paper.  It also means that each of the five (or more) things that are 
represented are *irrevocably* connected to one another, unless the line 
is broken.  No one thing is any stronger or better than the other - they 
are all dependent upon one another.

Here are two books you might enjoy reading, or just looking through:
Rudolf Koch's THE BOOK OF SIGNS, 1930, reprinted by Dover since 1955;
Clarence P. Hornung, HANDBOOK OF DESIGNS AND DEVICES, 1932, reprinted
by Dover since 1946.  (Dover Books has many beautiful books on design.)

Koch, re PENTAGRAM:  "The pentagram, a five-pointed star drawn with one
stroke of the pen:  this sign belongs, as do many others depicted here,
to the most primitive of mankind, and is certainly much older than
written characters.  Signs of this kind are quite the most ancient
human documents we possess.  The pentagram has had several different
significations at different times in the history of man.  The
Pythagoreans called it the pentalpha, and the Celtic priests the
witch's foot.  It is also Solomon's seal, known in the Middle Ages
as the goblin's cross.  It also represents the five senses; the male
and female principles are also conveyed by the arrangement of the
five points.  Amongst the druids it was the sign of Godhead, and to
the Jews it signified the five Mosaic Books.  This sign was also
popularly believed to be a protection against demons, and, by analogy,
a symbol of safety.  It is believed too to be the emblem of happy
homecoming, whence its employment as an amulet.  In ancient times
it was a magic charm amongst the people of Babylon."

Hornung, re PENTAGRAM:  "The five-pointed star...  As a continuous
interlacement,... it is called the pentacle, or pentagram, and becomes
an important element in the history of magic and witchcraft, with many
mystic interpretations.  It is an ingenious development used in ancient
times by the Pythagoreans and others as the pentalpha, an emblem of
perfection.  This sign was also regarded as a protective fetish, and
was frequently worn as an amulet."

The pentagram has meant many things to many different people/groups thoughout
history, including strangely enough within the Catholic church itself,
during various parts of the middle ages it was seen as a symbol of truth,
you can find indications of this in some Arthurian legends (i don't recall
the details, however one of the knights in one of the accounts was supposed
to have a shield with the symbol). (ranger) 

Gawain, in the medieval verse-tale SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT.

I strongly recommend J.R.R. Tolkien's wonderful translation,
which retains much of the Old English alliterative form.

Stanzas 27-28:

     Then they brought him his blazon that was of brilliant gules
     with the pentangle depicted in pure hue of gold.
     By the baldric he caught it and about his neck cast it:
     right well and worthily it went with that knight.
     And why the pentangle is proper to that prince so noble
     I intend now to tell you, though it may tarry my story.
     It is a sign that Solomon once set on a time
     to betoken Troth, as it is entitled to do;
     for it is a figure that in it five points holdeth,
     and each line overlaps and is linked with another,
     and every way it is endless; and the English, I hear,
     everywhere name it the Endless Knot.
     So it suits well this knight and his unsullied arms;
     for ever faithful in five points, and five times under each,
     Gawain as good was acknowledged and as gold refine'd,
     devoid of every vice and with virtues adorned.
                   So there
              the pentangle painted new
              he on shield and coat did wear
              as one of word most true
              and knight of bearing fair.

     First faultless was he found in his five senses,
     and next in his five fingers he failed at no time,
     and firmly on the Five Wounds all his faith was set
     that Christ received on the cross, as the Creed tells us;
     and wherever the brave man into battle was come,
     on this beyond all things was his earnest thought:
     that ever from the Five Joys all his valour he gained
     that to Heaven's courteous Queen once came from her Child.
     For which cause the knight had in comely wise
     on the inner side of his shield her image depainted,
     that when he cast his eyes thither his courage never failed.
     The fifth five that was used, as I find, by this knight
     was free-giving and friendliness first before all,
     and chastity and chivalry ever changeless and straight,
     and piety surpassing all points:  these perfect five
     were hasped upon him harder than on any man else.
     Now these five series, in sooth, were fastened on this knight,
     and each was knit with another and had no ending,
     but were fixed at five points that failed not at all,
     coincided in no line nor sundered either,
     not ending in any angle anywhere, as I discover,
     wherever the process was put in play or passed to an end.
     Therefore on his shining shield was shaped now this knot,
     royally with red gules upon red gold set:
     this is the pure pentangle as people of learning
                   have taught.
              Now Gawain in brave array
              his lance at last hath caught.
              He gave them all good day
              for evermore as he thought.

------------------------------------- Great Britain, the inverted pentagram is the sign of a second level 
Wiccan Student in the Gardnerian Tradition. Because of the fear frenzy of 
the Fundamentalists, in  this country another symbol is used. And the 
symbols may be very different in different parts of the world as to how 
to identify either a Satanist or a second level Gardnerian Student. 

...the symbol is a reminder to face the evil/dark and nastiness within or 
it will rise up and control you. (Susan Profit)

Well, according to my tradition, four of the points represent the 
elements of Earth, Air, Fire & Water.  The fifth point represents the 
spiritual.  Now, reference to up or down...Up is representative of the 
higher spiritual plane, down is representative of inner spirituality.

...the pentagram as a symbol for Satanism was a figment of some 
fundies' collective imaginations then adopted by Satanists.  To lend 
further credence, it was pointed out that a point-down pentagram looked 
a little like a goat's head, said to be a Satanic creature.  Actually, 
this reference first showed up centuries ago when the Roman Catholic 
Church attempted to slander Pan and His followers. (DREAM WEAVER)

Joseph of Aramathia came to the Isle of angels after the crucifixion of
Christ. There are those who believe that Jesus himself came to Britain and
was taught by the Druids during his early adulthood.

Regardless the people of Britain saw remarkable religious similarities 
between their own beliefs and those of the EARLY Christians. There is proof 
that the British practiced both religions side by side.

Later when the Roman church was in ascendancy they started to subvert other
religious practices. For some reason, whether to show displeasure of Rome,
or whether the Church itself initiated the practice, those who where against
the church inverted their crosses and since the Pentagram was worn with it it 
also was inverted. (Allan M Rennie)

There are a lot of pagans out here that use an inverted pentagram as a 
banishing/grounding pentagram that aren't involved in Satanism at all.

Both the upright and inverted pentagram are tools and nothing more.  They
are symbols of a way that ritual and magick and energy are moved.  How 
each person or group of people chooses to *use* such symbols is the key
issue.  If you use an inverted pentagram for "Black Magic"  (Ghod how I
hate that term.  Especially since Black Magick for me designates only
those workings done in the dark phase of the moon.) then it is the energy
that you focus and the direction that *you* choose that makes them "evil"
in symbology.  

Hawke (NightStalker)

The pentagram itself is an extremely ancient symbol, with various forms
and significances in different cultures -- much like the cross.

The magical pentagram as used in a ritual which projects it to the four
quarters is a relatively recent innovation, apparently no older than
the Golden Dawn (or possibly Eliphas Levi.)  The ritual authors derived
the symbol from older sources, probably including the Pythagoreans, and
built the ritual from it and other materials, such as a Jewish night
prayer.  This is the form in which the pentagram is used by modern
paganism, which employs numerous variations on the Golden Dawn
pentagram ritual as the basic framework for circle work.

I heard this symbol is used in a "spiritual communications" in certain 
forms of Satan worship.  The person sits in the middle of the circle 
while "praying" to the spirits who can then "sit" on each of the five 
points of the "star".  

Todd Strickland ( 

...The inverted pentagram has always represented a variety of things,
as do the upright and skew pentagrams.  Aside from prudery in symbolism
apparently originating in the 19th century, the abuse of this symbol
by associating it with evil or "Devil Worship", in the Christian sense,
is an act of religious intolerance on a level with racism in Nazi
Germany.  Use of the inverted pentagram by non-Christian Satanists is
harmless, no different from use of the swastika by the Theosophical
Society.  Hate groups have attempted to use the inverted and other
orientations of the pentagram to engage authorities in the suppression
of non-Christian religious organizations, much as the Proctor and Gamble
logo has been associated with irrelevant interpretations by certain
Christian groups selling competitive products door-to door.
   Accordingly, the pentagram in its various orientations is an appropriate
symbol of solidarity with victims of bigotry.  Wear it proudly and
display it in your windows.  If that had been done with the Hexagram
in 1930's Germany, 9 million Jews, Gypsies and Masons might have been
saved from untimely and horrible death.  Avoidance of this symbol may
result in: A. tacit endorsement of abuse of minorities for financial and
other gain.  B. encouragement of children to adopt this symbol as a
justification for destructive behavior.

1) Many Satanists don't wear an inverted cross. They have no use for
that symbol, which has nothing whatsoever to do with our religion or

2) The Pentagram has no "right side up" or down orientation. It's an
almost circular symbol, which can be used one-point-up, one-point-
down, one-point-right, one-point-left, or askew. There are some Pagan
and Wiccan folk who use what you call the "inverted" pentagram as a
symbol of their initiation. There are some Satanists who use the
pentagram in other ways than what you call "inverted." 

My personal use is one-point-down, for reasons based in the discussion
of symbolism in the Temple of Set's _Crystal Tablet. It has nothing to
do with any Pagan, Wicca, or Christian use of a similar symbol. (Balanone)

Supposedly, a "good" pentagram has only one point up, and the "inverted"
pentagram, which is associated with "evil" devils and demons (!) is
hated. "White" witches are quick to point out that the pentagrams they
wear around their necks are not "evil" etc, and even Anton LaVey
(founder, Church of Satan) says that he uses the two point up pentagram
to represent man's carnal (vs "spiritual" nature), which is basically
correct. What he does not mention is that the two point up pentagram is
older and much more common. The one point up pentagram was basically
something that came along with the "Wicca" movement via Gerald Gardner et
al; in other words, it is recent and invented by people born and raised
Christian. Fact. Well, looking back through historical stuff, the theme
of 5 things is extremely common and is associated with the Goddess (ref.
_The White Goddess_ by Robert Graves: well known book). Looking through
certain art, you can also find a pentagram, which is always 2 points up.
You can go to your library and get any book of Tantrik art to see this.
Freemasons use it to mean "man", which is also easily verifiable. The
point is, the pentagram goes way back and is common, perhaps because the
image and general shape is common in nature: many animal faces have
this shape and plants do as well, but only if it has 2 points up. Both of
the referenced mystical groups are older than the "white witches" and the
movement in general. This is something you should be able to research and
see for yourself pretty easily. I said, the two easiest groups that use this and are known to 
be old, etc, are the Freemasons and Tantriks, which are groups not 
historically related and have different origins and traditions, but both 
use a two-point up pentagram. The Freemasons call it the Eastern Star, 
and you can probably get a graphic file of this off of the internet (so 
you don't even have to go to the library). Check "Alt.Freemasonry" (I 
think it is) and maybe someone can give you pointers; you can also see on 
that group Freemasons being accused of using the "devil's sign", which 
is funny, since Freemasons have been along much longer than the Church of 
Satan! For the Tantrik stuff, most any art history book about it will 
have at least one pentagram in there: I have seen them either in "symbols 
relating cosmos" pictures or chakra diagrams. Since most books draw on 
basically the same materials, I cannot recommend a specific one. Just 
look in the computer under "Tantrik art" or "art Tantrik".

Brendan <>

The Pentagram business is a *convention*, not an absolute. But it's been
intentionally built up and reinforced over the last 20-30 years as the
American Wiccan/NeoPagan movement has evolved. Most people are taught that
the upright star represents the human "Spirit": an individual person in
charge of their own destiny, and unifying the other Four Elements within
him/herself. So far, so good, right? 

In the late 1960's, a whole bunch of books on Witchcraft, Magick, and
Occultism came out. There was a big "fad" thing happening there for
awhile, probably due to the influence of the Counterculture. Enquiring
minds wanted to know: Is there magic(k)? Does it work? How can I do it?
Will I go to Hell for doing it? And suddenly there were all these books. 

In this era, Anton LaVey started the Church of Satan and published "The
Satanic Bible". Obviously his Church needed a logo, and so he turned to
the works of Eliphas Levi, the 19th-century French Occultist. Levi lived
in a repressive time and place (he was actually a Catholic priest) and got
his writings past the censors by making a big, bold distinction between
Good and Evil. It is Levi's famous engraving of "Baphomet" which became
the Official Satanist Logo: modified and somewhat updated to include the
Inverted Pentagram emphasizing the Horns of Satan. 

But in Wica, as founded by Gerald Gardner, the Inverted Pentagram was used
as a symbol of the Second Degree, which treats of the Horned One and his
powers of Transformation: Death, Love, and Rebirth. So to Witches (at
least from 1949 on) it had a different, more "neutral" meaning. In English
practice it is still used as the Second-Degree symbol. (Perhaps in certain
ways the Brits tend to be more sensible and less superstitious than we,

But not here in the USA, oh no! As soon as the inverted-Pentagram Satanic
Logo got identified in the public mind with Evil Black Magic(k), those
anxious to distinguish Wicca from Satanism made it quite plain that "we" 
only use the Upright Star. I can't blame the American Craft for this: it 
was an expedient demanded by the time. (If you think we got "clueless 
newbies" now, you should have seen what was out there then!)

And so the Upright Pentagram has gone down, over time (but not that much
time, really) as the symbol for those whose magic(k) is "Positive" (Good)
not "Negative" (Baaaad). As for the Inverse Pentagram -- just try wearing
one to a party, especially if you're fifteen years old -- and see how much
attention you get! "Eeevil" still equals "Sexy and Dangerous" in our
culture; add the "I *am* a Master Warlock" spin and you may *actually get
laid*! So you can understand why the Inverse Pentagram is a big boon to
lonely, horny people still in the "Workin' the Bar 101" phase of
development. (Anton LaVey certainly did!)

Witches are supposed to be, IMHO, more subtle than that. If you appreciate
the distinction between raw fish and sushi you probably giggle at people
who wear Inverse Pentagrams. But don't get in their face with it -- for
most of them it's legitimate self-assertion, given a culture in which they
must wrestle with the Xtian notion that it's "evil" to Just Be Themselves.
Sooner or later they may discover more subtle aspects of Magic(k) -- or
maybe not, if it really works for them. Meanwhile a strongly-projected (if
unspoken) "that's *tacky!*" will usually take care of the "problem". 

B*B, (Balachandra)

...You're confused. It's the *upright* 
Pentacle that is the "Sign of Man", and it's alchemical symbology, not 
Masonic. Leonardo de Vinci uses it in his very famous drawing of a Man 
with his arms and legs outstretched, with the upright Pentacle behind him 
& framing him. Just my $.02. (Walter Five)

Leonardo's famous sketch does *not* contain a pentagram of any description. 
Check an art history book, or if you have Web access, the upper half of 
the picture may be found at as an inline gif.

The figure is drawn on a superimposed square and circle, *not* a pentagram.

"A beautiful theory, callously murdered by cold, unfeeling facts." (Peter Trei)

Be it one or two points up, the position is really irrelevant.  In both 
Pagan/Wiccan and Satanist traditions it depends on which way that the 
Pentagram is drawn.  If being used for the positive or "gathering" means, 
it is traditionally drawn clockwise.  If being used to negate or 
"diminish", it is drawn counterclockwise.   However, the fact that one 
way is "evil" while the other is not is up to one's own perception.  
Throughout the ages, many religious symbols have been used to serve 
one's own means and by that they tend to have been corrupted.

Blessed Be!! (Melusine)

More Star Stuff &c. (Long Post):

1. Freemasonry

In Masonic tradition, the upright interlaced Pentagram is sometimes used
to symbolize the sitting Master of the Lodge. This is an old tradition,
very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, especially in English Lodges.
It has fallen into disuse here here in the US, possibly because of the
association of the Pentagram with Occultism. (Masons have enough trouble
with gratuitous prejudice without using a symbol popularly thought to be
a "negative" one.)

However, I have seen several antique Past Master's Jewels (presented by
the Lodge to the outgoing Master on his retirement from the East) in which
the Interlaced Pentagram is superimposed upon the Compasses, with the
traditional carved moonstone at its center. It may also be noted that a 
"hidden" aspect of the symbolic Pentagram exists in the 72o angle of the 
open Compasses as seen in Freemasonry's standard logo. This is intentional.

As for "Eastern Star": I am a member of the Order of Eastern Star, a
Masonic Women's Organization, (founded in the 1860's) whose symbol is the
five-pointed Star (*not* the Interlaced Pentagram).  Each Star Point
represents a heroine of Biblical lore (three from the Old Testament and
two from the New) who exemplifies a Feminine Mystery. For example, I sit
at the Point of Esther (aka Ishtar, Isis, Astarte) and represent Her 
-- quite a treat for a Goddess-worshipper like me.

In most State Jurisdictions, the "Eastern Star" is seen with two points
up, something the National organization refuses to change despite what I
imagine can be rather nasty pressure from local Fundamentalist groups. In
New York State (where the O.E.S. was founded) however, our Star has
*always* been seen with one point upright. I don't know why the others
originally chose the reversed Star, but I'll ask someone from out-of-state
sometime and perhaps then be able to report on it. (Balachandra)

The version I know of the logic behind this goes:

Pentagram points=		Head(Spirit)

		L.ARM (Air)			R.ARM (Fire)

			L.Leg (Earth)	R.Leg (Water)

And is symbolic of the triumph of Mind over man/the elements. (good)

The Inverse pentagram being symbolic of the domination of the 
spirit/will/mind by the earthly forces, Lust,Greed,etc. (bad)

Therefore 'Whites' seeking to control their bodily urges wear the 'good' 
type. 'Blacks' glorifying and magnifying their bodily urges wear the 'bad' 

Crowley's view was that neither version was intrinsically good or bad but was 
merely a classic magical instance of an Aspect. Each should be used 
according to the object of the ritual/talisman or the forces being invoked.
Example: When invoking Elementals to actually DO work a base up point down

fingers, and the five Knightly Virtues (Courtesy, Chastity, Generosity,

The Greeks may have (and probably did) derive the mathematical
formulae for inscribing a perfect pentagram, but the symbol itself
probably predates them.  I believe I've seen pictures of pentagrams
in African petroglyphs, for instance.  

It seems more likely to me that the Pythagorean rather than the
Platonic schools revered the symbol.  I recall no discussion of
mathematical formulae in Platonic literature - which doesn't mean it
doesn't exist, merely that it is overwhelmed in my memory by other,
mostly political philosophies. I believe that the Pythagoreans were
more apt to be regarded by other Greeks as cultists than were
students of Plato, but I'll admit that the impression is gleaned
more from Mary Renault than from contemporary sources.

And, for what it is worth, the early fathers of the Xian church
selected the pentagram to represent the Star of Bethlehem for a
reason:  it symbolizes the Pentagrammaton, YHVShH, Yehoveshah, which
was translated into Greek as Jesus.  Both the Tetragrammaton and the
Pentagrammaton appear to predate Kabalah, the earliest sources for
which are found, I believe, in twelfth or thirteenth century France
and Germany - but they do not predate the sources from which the
Kabalah was drawn.  That symbolizm *may* have been the reason
medieval Satanists are presumed to have inverted the pentagram,
though my reading suggests they preferred to invert the cross.

I always find it odd that xians sometimes claim that a symbol which
from the earliest years of their religion has represented their God
is really the symbol of His enemy. (Baird Stafford)

The points of the pentagram are viewed by many as follows:
top: Spirit, right top: Water, right bottom: Fire, left top: Air, 
Left bottom: Earth.
Most wear them to remind them to always have Spirit over the elements in
life.   Also Life, health, protection (especially against hostile

Hope this is of some help!  There is a lot of symbolism in a pentagram it

The so-called "inverse" pentagram (which can also be derived by rotating
it eighteen degrees) may have gotten its nasty reputation from its
Islamic application as a simple decoration.  One can find an example of
this on the cover of S.H. Nasr's _Islamic Ideals and Realities_, which
features a very ornate "inverse" pentagram with the Arabic script for
"Allah" in the center pentagon.  There was a time when Christians thought
Muhammad was the Antichrist, and anything with any Islamic connection was
considered "evil." (Kevin Bold/Fra:. Baraka)

The ‘STARS’ of the Olympics

First and foremost my discipline is Astrology so of course I drew up the charts for the upcoming Olympic events out of curiosity as well as to aid my ongoing studies. Well, I wasn’t disappointed – the symbolism is both astonishing and a bit disconcerting.

The connections between recent events, the numerology and the astrology, were so numerous it was impossible to include them all in one article. Hence, I decided to write enough of what I discovered to hopefully inspire others to do their own research and tune into these developmental times in their own way.

Officially, the opening ceremony is at 9pm, on the 27th of July.

Here is the chart for this time.

To keep things simple for those of you who are not familiar with Astrology, the thing to keep in mind is that the most important factors in an…

O2 Olympic venue in row over security against legal photography

Arena hosting Games events in Greenwich defends security guards’ attempt to stop filming from public land

O2 security guards at the London Olympics venue stop the Guardian from taking legal photographs from public land Link to this videoMedia and civil liberties groups have expressed alarm after the managers of an Olympic venue pledged to intercept and question anyone seen photographing or filming the site, even from public land, and defended security guards who wrongly tried to invoke terrorist laws to prevent footage being shot of the arena.

The stance taken by the O2 in Greenwich, south-east London, which will host this summer’s basketball, wheelchair basketball, artistic gymnastic and trampoline events, highlights wider concerns that Olympic securityoperations could see photographers, film crews and even members of the public harassed for entirely legal activities.

John Toner from the National Union of Journalists said he would seek an urgent meeting with managers of the O2, saying their tactics had no basis in law. “I’m stunned, and what they say is utterly outrageous,” he said.

While there are strict photography rules inside Olympic venues and on many other private spaces, when standing on public land the press and public have a clear right to shoot still or moving images.

Ahead of the Games, police and the security industry have sought to train staff about this aspect of the law. There have nonetheless been a series of incidents in recent months in which photographers have been challenged while working on public land, especially in London.

As an experiment, the Guardian attempted to shoot video footage of the O2 arena from a public road on its southern edge, only a few minutes’ walk from the main entrance.

Very quickly the reporter was challenged by O2 security guards, who made a series of demands with no basis in law. They ordered that the filming stop – “We’ve requested you to not do it because we don’t like it” – and that they be shown any existing footage. Asked on what basis they could demand this, one replied: “It’s under the terrorist law. We are an Olympic venue.” Another added: “You have, for want of a better word, breached our security by videoing it [the O2].”

At one point they refused to allow the reporter to leave. One said: “It’s gone too far for that.”

Guards are entitled to challenge suspicious behaviour and call the police. However, they have no additional legal powers on public land. While such overreach is not uncommon it is often followed by a management apology.

An O2 spokesman defended the guards’ approach. He said: “On the basis that [the reporter was] filming areas of the O2 that are not usually of interest to the public, our security staff’s approach and handling of the situation was entirely appropriate.”

It was routine policy to intercept anyone filming the arena from public land, he added: “We work with the media and others to accommodate requests to film in and around the O2, which is situated on private property, but when we observe filming of the O2’s infrastructure and access points it is our policy to approach individuals so we can take the appropriate course of action.” The same policy was in force with people taking still photographs from public vantage points, he said.

The civil rights campaign group Liberty said it was alarmed. Its legal officer Corinna Ferguson, said: “There’s no power stopping a person taking photographs on public land, let alone to arrest them or seize property, without reasonable suspicion they’ve committed an offence. Police officers or  security guards who get this wrong could well find themselves in trouble with the law.

“With all eyes on London during the Olympics what a terrible message it would send if Londoners and tourists face harassment from the authorities merely for snapping the capital’s landmarks.”

Toner, who set up a meeting last week between journalists and senior Scotland Yard officers leading the Olympic security operation, in part to address such concerns, said: “The level of ignorance displayed by their employees is quite incredible. But for the management to display the same level of ignorance is beyond belief.

“What worries me is that there must be lots of people who will just come along and take pictures of the O2. It’s an unusual building. Some will be tourists – are they going to clamp down on tourists? Are they going to alienate visitors with their ridiculous behaviour?”

The O2’s policy is all the more surprising given recent guidance issued by the British Security Industry Association. It has drawn up a leaflet for members which spells out the law very plainly. “If an individual is in a public place photographing or filming a private building, security guards have no right to prevent the individual from taking photographs,” it reads, adding that filming or taking a photograph “does not in itself indicate hostile reconnaissance or other suspicious behaviour”.

Similar incidents with police were relatively common until 2010, when terrorism stop-and-search laws were tightened following a challenge at the European court of human rights. Since then, according to experts, it has mainly been private guards causing such problems.

“Our main worry is the lack of training for some security guards. It seems to be one of the big issues now,” said Chris Cheeseman from Amateur Photographer magazine, which has campaigned over photographers’ freedoms.

The incident at the O2 was eventually resolved after guards called police, who also asked to see the video footage, citing the Terrorism Act. The reporter was allowed to leave after neither he nor the police could properly operate the camera to replay the footage.

The photographer’s experience

As a photographer in the heightened security atmosphere of pre-Olympics east London, Vickie Flores is used to being challenged. But this seemed particularly anomalous: being told she couldn’t take pictures of a 60m-high structure clearly visible for miles around.

“Not a week goes by without me being stopped by someone or other. But this one was bizarre,” Flores said of her recent encounter with a security guard near the almost-completed Thames cable car system, which will whisk tourists between Olympic venues on opposite sides of the river using gondolas suspended between soaring white pillars.

Flores ignored the direction – she was taking the picture from a public pavement. But she has found such attitudes hardening as the Olympics approach, especially among over-officious security guards.

“I’ve never been stopped as much as I have in the past six months,” she said. “It’s happened more than in the rest of my life before. Sometimes I even think, ‘Can I be bothered with all the hassle of taking a particular picture, is it worth it?’ It’s got to that stage.”

London Olympics hit by super security

Stop whimpering, London, we’ll be fine, mayor says

London in 2012


When the young soldier boarded the shuttle bus, we knew we’d arrived at the Olympic site.

A polite man in green fatigues and a beret, he glanced only briefly over the reporters crammed into the top level of the double-decker bus ferrying us to the main venue.

With a nod, he wished us a good day and disappeared. Outside, meanwhile, his colleagues were using mirrors to check under the vehicles for explosives.

More soldiers stood watch behind gravel blast barriers, the kind used at military outposts in places like Afghanistan, and only rarely in places like civilized central London.

The military presence at the Olympic Park is hard to miss and is but one aspect of the super security, readiness concerns and political tensions that are dominating the run-up to this event.

At the main venues, workers are still scurrying to put the finishing touches on sites that will soon host visitors from around the world.

With the clock ticking down to Friday’s opening ceremony, activity is increasing at the main Olympic Park with soldiers, security guards and reporters all trying to familiarize themselves with the sprawling collection of strange looking modernistic buildings.

Soldiers are now operating the X-ray scanners and metal detectors at the International Media Centre and men and women in fatigues are everywhere around the Games site.

Add to this the 5000-volt electrified fence (17.5 kilometres) that surrounds the Olympic Park, the ever-growing reach of the closed-circuit TV cameras that constantly watch over Britain’s capital, and the plans to put as many as six surface-to-air missile batteries atop downtown buildings, and it is hard not to think of London right now as a city under siege.

‘No danger’

The military has set up camp in an abandoned shopping centre in East London, near the Olympic park, installing beds and showers for some of the additional 3,500 troops — almost as many as Britain deployed in Afghanistan — who have been quickly called into service.

They are part of a 50,000-plus security force that includes police, the army and private contactors — the latter part of a multi-billion-dollar firm with mucho egg on its face.

Olympic organizers were forced to call on more troops only days ago when the security firm G4S admitted it could hire and train fewer than half the 10,000 security guards it had promised to patrol and protect the venues.

The head of the company, Nick Buckles, admitted the setback was, in his words, a “humiliating fiasco.”

But with just four days to go before the opening ceremonies, Olympic organizers — who have spent more than $1.5 billion safeguarding the event — were promising athletes and fans were in no danger.

“This is not an issue that has remotely compromised security,” said Sebastian Coe, the head of the London Olympic organizing committee in an interview with the BBC, referring to the G4S fiasco.

“We have got the numbers, courtesy of the military and our police services. We have got the numbers to make sure that this is a safe and secure games.”

The concerns over security, though, are just one part of the opening night jitters Olympic organizers are experiencing as their big day draws closer.

The London Olympic Committee describes the Games as akin to staging nearly 50 world championship sporting events at the same time.

Organizers are trying to accommodate nearly 15,000 athletes and 21,000 journalists while coordinating an army of 6,000 staff and 70,000 volunteers.

On top of this, the British government has put a special team of diplomats and protocol experts in place in case heads of state, such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin, decide to show up at the last minute; or in the event there is a need for secret, high-level negotiations among some of those in attendance.

All in, London 2012 is a logistical nightmare. And it almost goes without saying that many things can and will go wrong.

‘Enough whimpering’

There have already been grumblings here about traffic tie-ups and the general disruptions that go hand in hand with holding an event of this scale.

London cabbies held an impromptu one-day park-in last week and there are concerns that passport officials and train crews may go on strike during the Games.

London’s flamboyant mayor, Boris Johnson, though, is having none of the gloom and doom. A shameless promoter of both the Games and his beloved city, Johnson has lashed out at the doubters and urged all of Britain to feel a swell of national pride at holding such a prestigious event.

Enough whimpering,” Johnson wrote in The Sun tabloid newspaper recently.

“We are about to stage the greatest show on Earth in the greatest city on Earth, and if you believe much of the media we are all in the grip of paralyzing stage fright.”

On Friday, as thousands gathered along the banks of the River Thames to watch the Olympic flame arrive in London aboard a Royal Navy helicopter, many seemed to share the mayor’s view.

“It’s kind of very British thing. We always seem to look at the downside rather than the upside”, said Jackie Barlow of South London.

Barlow has tickets to Olympic field hockey and soccer matches and fully expects the Games to be a great success.

“There will be disruptions, there’s no doubt about it,” she says. “But there are disruptions on a normal day. So, people will just have to be patient. It’s going to be fun.”

“The British love to moan about things. It’s the way we are, “said Sarah Jane Breen. “But we’ll just get on with it. Everyone’s going to have a great time.”

Over the weekend, that sentiment seemed to be taking hold. Thousands lined London’s streets to watch and cheer the Olympic torch on its tour through the city. The sun came out and, after weeks of dreary weather, Londoners were able to bask in what felt like their first summer day of the year.

Organizers of the Olympics can only hope it’s all a good omen and that this huge international undertaking unfolds without incident. Ready or not, the London Games are about to begin.

London Olympics: Anti-Gang Operations Intensify

Posted on 07/23/2012 by 



By Jim Kouri, CPP. ~

Besides anti-terrorism operations by Scotland Yard and MI5 to make London safer for the anticipated throngs of 2012 Olympic Games athletes, staff and spectators, the Yard is also attempting to prevent the city from being overrun by street gangs. This month scores of suspected gang members were targeted in a series of coordinated operations as part of a major crack down on by the Metropolitan Police Service, according to the Home Office this week.

The operation was spearheaded by a newly formed Trident Gang Crime Command. It’s seen as the beginning of a step change in how the MPS tackles gang crime in the capital and forms a key part of the Met Commissioner’s total war on crime.

Hundreds of police officers took part in this month’s operation, which saw suspected gang members being pursued for a series of crimes, including assault, robbery and drugs supply in a refreshed approach to help stop young people getting killed or seriously injured.

One thousand officers are specifically dedicated to tackling gang crime in London with the creation of a central Trident Gang Crime Command as well as the introduction of local task forces across London. The new command will retain responsibility for the prevention and investigation of shootings, but will now work more closely with boroughs to proactively tackle gang crime, according to Scotland Yard officials.

The new command will be enhanced with additional specialist resources from the MPS, including Operation Connect and the Serious and Organized Crime Command (SCD7). It will take responsibility for real time monitoring of gang activity across London and work with new ‘Grip and Pace’ centers to coordinate and task corporate resources, both overt and covert, quickly at the relevant places.

Nineteen priority boroughs will have dedicated gang crime task forces to deal with local gang crime, and will work with their partners to implement diversion and prevention activities. Other boroughs and specialist commands will also be required to have more of a focus on gang crime, according to MPS officials.

The new approach builds on the good work already seen in the MPS and ensures all the expertise and skills in the service are brought together and used in a more targeted and effective way. It will see better and more consistent use of intelligence to identify and prioritize the most harmful gangs and gang members, while spotting young people on the periphery who can be referred to other agencies for help in keeping away from crime.

MPS Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said: “This is a step change in how we tackle gang crime in London. It will allow us to identify and relentlessly pursue the most harmful gangs and gang members. It will help us identify young people on the periphery of gangs and work with partners to divert them away.

“Although we are now nearly doubling the number of officers dedicated to tackling gang crime, the police can not do this alone. It is vital we work with the public, local authorities, charities and other agencies to prevent young people from joining gangs in the first place.”

According to MPS intelligence systems there are an estimated 250 active criminal gangs in London, comprising of about 4,800 people. Of these gangs 62 are considered as high harm and commit two thirds of all gang-related crime.

The gangs range from organized criminal networks involved in Class A drugs supply and firearms, to street-based gangs involved in violence and personal robbery. This relatively small number of people is responsible for approximately 22% of serious violence, 17% of robbery, 50% of shootings and 14% of rape in London.

Gangs exist in and around all parts of the capital but are more prevalent in about 19 London boroughs. They are made up of mainly young people, aged between 18 and 24 years, but officers have seen even younger children involved in or on the periphery of gangs, according to MPS officials. Contributing Editor Jim Kouri,  CPP is currently vice-president of the National Association of Chiefs of Police and a staff writer for the New Media Alliance ( He is a former chief at a New York City housing project in Washington Heights nicknamed “Crack City” by reporters covering the drug war in the 1980s.

London 2012 Olympics: Assembly calls for ban on junk food sponsors

The London Assembly have called for a ban on the sponsorship of the Olympic and Paralympic Games by companies that produce high calorie food and drink.

Assembly calls for ban on high calorie Olympic sponsorship

A motion which was passed in Wednesday’s full meeting of the council urged the Olympic movement to adopt strict criteria for sponsorship of the Games which would exclude companies that are associated with products that are connected to childhood obesity.

In the UK an estimated 60.8 per cent of adults and 31.1 per cent of children are overweight. One of the aims of the Olympics was to leave behind a healthier legacy which encouraged more children to be involved in sport. The London Assembly believe that the sponsors behind the Olympics contradict that message.

Jenny Jones AM, who proposed the motion, said: “London won the right to host the 2012 Games with the promise to deliver a legacy of more active, healthier children across the world.

“Yet the same International Olympic Committee that awarded the games to London persists in maintaining sponsorship deals with the purveyors of high calorie junk that contributes to the threat of an obesity epidemic.”

Lead sponsors such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola are both associated with products that are high in fat. A regular Big Mac meal with a fizzy drink, such as Fanta, contains more than 1,000 calories. A normal can of Coca-Cola contains 142 calories and even the diet version contains a controversial sweetener called Aspartame.

Dr Onkar Sahota AM, who seconded the motion, is concerned about the amount of publicity that these unhealthy products will receive. He said: ”The advertising of foods high in fat, salt and sugar is already restricted on children’s television.

“These Games will subvert those regulations by providing a glut of sponsored messages for high calorie food and drink that are at odds with the Olympian athletic ideal.”

The full text of the motion agreed at Wednesday’s meeting reads as follows:

1) The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) to recommend that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) introduces criteria for the selection of worldwide sponsors for future Games that exclude food and drinks companies strongly associated with high calorie brands and products linked to childhood obesity, and to encourage national organising committees to adopt similar criteria;

2) The Mayor of London to encourage the organisers of future major sporting events in London to adopt criteria for appointment of sponsors that exclude such food and drinks companies; and

3) The Government to consider introducing restrictions on advertising and exclusive marketing at major sporting events by such food and drinks companies.

London 2012 Olympics: McDonald’s ‘the wrong choice’ for athletes, says Team GB sport science head

Team GB’s head of sports science has said athletes would be “making the wrong choice” by eating at McDonald’s, the official restaurant of the London Games.

Marco Cardinale

Chipping in: Marco Cardinale says he expects athletes to avoid McDonald’s Photo: AP

6:03PM BST 19 Jul 2012

Marco Cardinale, who reports to deputy chef de mission Sir Clive Woodward, said he would be “very surprised” if squad members ate at the chain’s biggest ever branch in the Olympic Park.

In an interview with Telegraph Sport, he said athletes should continue to be disciplined after they compete because taking part in the Games is about responsibility and appearance.

His comments are likely to embarrass McDonald’s, which has sponsored the Olympics for the last 40 years. It has four restaurants in the park, including its biggest in the world, which can seat 1,500 customers. On its website the company highlights how it will “feed the Games”, including athletes.

But asked if British athletes would avoid the restaurant, Mr Cardinale said: “How can you say 100 per cent? All the athletes are going through this journey and they have got to the Games because they train hard. So I would be very surprised if the majority of athletes make the wrong choice.

“They have a choice of going to the Italian side and eating six dishes of pasta or having two burgers in McDonald’s, but I would be very surprised if the British athletes, considering the support they get on a daily basis, go and make the wrong choice.”

He said he had given PowerPoint presentations to encourage athletes to eat well.

“I think our athletes can be the catalyst,” he said. “They are the example, they are the people the nation looks at and they can be good role models.

“We got there because we work very hard, we look after ourselves and we make the right choices.”

The Italian researcher also called on policymakers to tackle poor catering in sport centres.

“We have got to educate people so they make the right choices,” he said. “How many times do you walk into a sport centre and see the food offering and think ‘this is wrong’. How can you have such food and vending machines near a sport facility?

“They are making the right choice by going to exercise and then you cannot make the right choice when it comes to food after exercising. I think it is something that will require policy.”

To avoid the Olympic weather forecast, please look away now

So what if the expert view is that an Ice Age is imminent – the cold never held Britain back, says Boris Johnson.

6:27AM BST 16 Jul 2012

I put down the phone and gazed at the teeming skies. I considered my options. Maybe it was time for prayer. Perhaps we could stage a pagan ritual at Stonehenge, involving either the sacrifice of maidens (if there are any these days), or a goat, or a rabbit, or maybe just a worm — whatever the RSPCA would allow.

Maybe it was time to call upon the sun god Ra, or Phoebus Apollo, or Sol Victrix, or whatever name he now goes by, and lift our hands in chanting entreaty. Come on, O thou fiery spirit that animates the world. Come on out from wherever you are hiding. Shine the light of your countenance upon us, you miserable blighter. Extend thy beams, so reverend and strong, and dry the water from our upturned cheeks. Flatter the mountain tops with your sovereign eye, vaporise the thunderheads, and give us all a break.

Give us poor Britons some kind of a summer – before the entire country dissolves like a sugar cube and sinks into the sea. If you think July has been wet so far, you should hear the forecast I have just been given. In fact, I am about to pass on the news, but before I do so I want you to know (a) that I flatly refuse to believe it and (b) that even if it turns out to be true, then I know that it will make not a bean of difference to our collective morale or to the global festival of sport that we are about to lay on in London.

I have just been on the blower to my old chum, Piers Corbyn, the world’s foremost meteorological soothsayer, and he sounds like Jeremiah with an ingrown toenail. This is the same Corbyn, with a first-class degree in physics, who decisively beat the Met Office in 2010 and accurately forecast the cold and snowy winter — and I am afraid he has been bearish about this summer from sometime in February or March.

According to Piers and his team at Weather Action, we all underestimate the role of the sun. This is set to be just about the wettest July on record, he says, and that is mainly because of things taking place in the nuclear fireball millions of miles away from earth. “Sometime too bright the eye of heaven shines,” says the Poet, and often is his gold complexion dimmed. This is one of the dim moments. The old boy is suffering from some kind of solar acne, called “coronal holes”, and on July 12 he apparently emitted a colossal flare – a cosmic spurt of X-rays and other charged particles; and, by a process that we (or at least I) do not fully understand – perhaps because rain droplets form more easily when there are charged particles around – this distemper in the celestial orb is helping to cause the current inundations.

For the sake of completeness, and so that no one can later accuse me of concealing the bad news (what did he know about the weather, and when did he know it?), I should say that Piers has a general thesis that the current phase of grim weather – cold, snowy winters and wet summers – is just the prelude to something yet more bracing. We are heading, he says, for a mini Ice Age. These wet Julys and frosty Januaries are part of the opening drum roll of a cold period that will set in over the next decades.

Some say it will be upon us by 2045, some say by 2030. Looking at the pattern of the last few years, Piers Corbyn now thinks it could be sooner than that. He does not say that sabretooth tigers will roam the streets of Newcastle. He does not say that the Thames will freeze at London Bridge and that we will have fairs on the ice – unlikely, given how fast the river flows these days. But he does believe that it will get nippier, and that we will see the kind of cold period last experienced in the late 17th century and early 18th century.

That is the long-range forecast; and as for the next few days – well, do you want me to tell you what the short-term forecast is? Do you really want to know what the augur Corbyn foresees for the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games? Brace yourselves. “We’re very confident that there will be a lot of rain – a deluge, really – during the entire Olympic period, and we are 80 per cent sure that the Opening Ceremony itself will feature heavy rain, including hail and thunder.”

Well, my friends, I have two rejoinders. The first is that I don’t necessarily agree. Piers may be wrong. As I look out of my window this very moment, I can see beautiful blue sky and high, fleecy clouds – a perfect day. I have watched the flight of the birds, and they seem perfectly auspicious to me (a pair of pigeons, obviously much in love, occupying the right hand portion of the sky). Over the course of lunch I will examine the entrails of my Cornish pasty, but I can already tell you the results of the extispicy. Yes, there will be some greyish turnip, presaging more cloud; but also bright yellow swede, indicating more glorious sunshine.

In other words, it is going to be a classic English late July; and even if Corbyn is right in every particular – even if we can expect some more moisture – is that the end of the world? We have just staged a flawless Wimbledon; huge crowds are turning out for the torch relay, whatever the weather, and all enjoying themselves; the parks are heaving with joyous concerts, rain or shine. And even if we are about to enter a little Ice Age, the last ones didn’t seem to impede Britain’s rise to a position of global dominance.

Blow, winds and crack your cheeks. Blow, you cataracts and hurricanoes, spout till you have drenched our country yet again. We don’t give a monkey’s. We like a spot of precipitation. It intensifies the pleasure of the sun. Made us what we are. And by the way, it still rains more in Rome than it does in London.

Border staff ‘let in terror suspects’ ahead of Olympics

Terror suspects are entering the UK ahead of the Olympics because inexperienced border staff are failing to carry out the proper security checks, front line Heathrow officials have claimed.

The new staff, who have been recruited to shorten queues at Britain’s largest airport in the run up to the Games, are repeatedly “missing” passengers on the Home Office watch list who should be referred to counter-terrorism officers when they reach passport control, a senior border officer told the Observer.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the UK Border Agency official claimed three terror suspects had been waved through by staff on his shifts since the start of July.

All were registered on the Home Office suspect index system.

Another employee alleged that staff had missed five suspects in just one day earlier this month.

The senior official told The Observer: “The missing of counter-terrorism ‘hits’ is a huge thing, but new recruits are not getting enough time to be taught.

“It is vital these people do not get in without being noted and that the information is passed to the police or security services. Once they’re in, you’ve no idea where they might be going.”

Border officials are instructed immediately to alert counter-terrorism police or MI5 if they suspect an “SX traveller” is attempting to enter the UK.

But a large number of Home Office officials have been drafted in from different departments to help cope with border staffing shortages before the Olympics.

Those working on passport desks have received just basic training with some only getting a day’s tuition instead of the standard six to eight weeks, according to The Observer.

A Border Force spokesman said: “An independent inspection published last week concluded that all staff were fully aware of the checks they needed to conduct and that all checks were being completed.

“It also acknowledged the positive addition of hundreds of extra staff deployed to meet demand, the creation of a central control room to manage resources and ongoing recruitment of more border officers.

“All contingency staff deployed to the border are fully trained and supported by experienced Border Force officers at all times.

“Border Force has already delivered real improvements at Heathrow and is transforming the way it works to deliver improved waiting times and a secure border.”
