Queen’s 2015 Christmas Message: “Enjoy Your Final Christmas”

Queen's Christmas speech shocker

The Queen dropped a bombshell yesterday while filming her annual Christmas Message for the BBC, hinting at deep personal regrets over the murder of Princess Diana, a BBC insider claims.

Clearly troubled, the Queen said, “She knew too much.” The Queen asked her subjects to understand that the Royal Family simply did what was necessary to ensure their own survival.

Senior BBC production staff and palace advisors scrambled to cancel the take, but not before the Queen expressed dark fears that this will be the last Christmas on earth because malevolent forces, much stronger than her own, are stalking across Europe, gaining ground every day.

I hope you enjoy your final Christmas,” she said bitterly, before BBC staff, under strict orders from palace advisors, cancelled the take and sent junior staff on an early lunch.

Later in the day the Christmas message was re-done, the second take proving less troubling to the establishment.

In the United Kingdom and on the Internet, broadcast of the Queen’s Christmas message is embargoed until 3:00 PM GMT on Christmas Day. In other parts of the Commonwealth, the message is first broadcast in New Zealand at 6:50 PM local time by Television New Zealand, in Australia by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation at 7:20 PM local time, and in Canada by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at 10 AM Eastern Standard Time, which is the same as 3:00 PM GMT.

How popular is it?

Last year, 7.8 million viewers tuned in for the Christmas broadcast in the UK alone. The message was devoted to the First World War, the Northern Ireland peace process and the Scottish referendum.
The theme of this year’s speech, chosen by the Queen herself, will, according to her official website, reflect her own interests but will always be “motivated by compassion and concern for her people.”

Pope Says This May Be Our Last Christmas

Pope Francis has warned that this may be our last Christmas

Pope Francis told crowds in St. Peter’s Square that this Christmas might be the last one for humanity. 

In a grim speech, the Pope said that the current chaotic state of the world marks the beginning of the “end times”, and that this time next year the world is likely to be unrecognisable.

Francis, who previously announced the beginning of World War 3, had labelled this year’s Christmas as a “charade” during a Mass at the Casa Santa Maria earlier in the month.

We are close to Christmas. There will be lights, there will be parties, bright trees, even Nativity scenes – all decked out – while the world continues to wage war,” he said earlier in December.

The Pontiff, who turned 79 on Thursday, elaborated on his views this weekend, telling a crowd, “While the world starves, burns, and descends further into chaos, we should realise that this year’s Christmas celebrations for those who choose to celebrate it may be their last“.

Unless the path to peace is recognised, we must weep for those innocent victims who grow by the day, and ask God for forgiveness. As Jesus and God weeps, I do too“.

NASA and Pope Revealed 10 Secret Facts About Planet X (Nibiru)

 

NASA and Pope Revealed 10 Secret Facts About Planet X (Nibiru) Clapway

Science and religion have never gotten along that well but if there’s one thing they can both come together on, it’s Planet X. Officially called Nibiru, the exoplanet is believed to harbor alien life of some sorts. At least that’s what NASA thinks. The Pope, on the other hand, believes the planet holds the key to the future of mankind. Here are 10 secret facts to know about it.

1. PLANET X FACTS: NASA AND POPE CALL NIBIRU A REBEL PLANET

Although Planet X (Nibiru) is generating a lot of news these days, it’s been known for some time. Researchers believe that Planet X was first discovered sometime around 1983 by NASA. More than a decade later, an AP article called the planet “rebellious”. By this, they mean it breaks all the rules of how and where planets form.

From a religious standpoint, the Pope thinks Nibiru will eventually veer off course and collide with Earth, killing us all. That in itself is a rebellious act as well.

2. PLANET X FACTS: NASA’S NIBIRU DISCOVERY PROVES POPE WRONG

One of the biggest outcomes of Nibiru is its effect on religion and the Pope’s word. If Planet X does indeed exist, NASA thinks it will solve two of the biggest puzzles around. What caused the weird orbits of Uranus and Neptune in the 19th century? And what killed the dinosaurs millions of years ago? Of course, if these questions are answered, the Pope would be disproven as well. The Bible makes no mention of dinosaurs.

2. PLANET X FACTS: NASA'S NIBIRU DISCOVERY PROVES POPE WRONG Astrophysicist Meeting with Aliens from Proxima B; NASA knows... NASA Detected Planet X Heading For Earth Clapway3. PLANET X FACTS: POPE CALLS NIBIRU A DESTROYER AND NASA AGREES

The Kolbrin is a parallel bible found in the monastery of Glastonbury in Scotland. In this bible, they make reference to a vicious planet called “The Destroyer”. This Planet X is bright, fierce and constantly changing. According to the bible, Nibiru “The Destroyer” will mean the end of days here on Earth. For those following the Pope, you’ll recognize he too believes Nibiru will doom civilization someday.

NASA also agrees with this sentiment. If Planet X ever came close to Earth, it would cause large earthquakes, tsunamis, eruptions and other major natural disasters.

4. PLANET X FACTS: NASA AND POP SAY NIBIRU IS A PLANET OF RED FIRE

According to the ancient texts, Planet X is covered in a dust cloud made of iron oxide red. This, in turn, will make the rivers and lakes a reddish color. NASA

has confirmed that if Nibiru were to exist, it would be far hotter than Earth and likely uninhabitable to us humans. That’s not to say another species didn’t’ evolve, though. If they did, NASA will find it.

4. PLANET X FACTS: NASA AND POP SAY NIBIRU IS A PLANET OF RED FIRE Aliens to be Found on 3 Earth Like Planets; will NASA comment Clapway5. PLANET X FACTS: THE POPE SAYS NASA’S NIBIRU IS THE 3RD SECRET OF FATIMA

For years, people have been hounding the Pope to release the 3rd secret Fatima. However, he has been hesitant as the issue creates great controversy. In 2016, we can safely say that the third secret is about  the end of times and the destruction of faith. Not only will Planet X cause global destruction on a physical level, but it will create a great deal of doubt amongst religious people. Already, people are losing faith in God and with the discovery of Nibiru, they will only get worse. If the Pope doesn’t adapt to the changes, then the third secret of Fatima will come true, thus leaving the Earth to burn a hellish death void of faith.

6. PLANET X FACTS: NASA’S NIBIRU COULD ALSO HELP THE POPE

Just as Planet X could destroy the foundation of religion, it has the possibility of helping it as well. As mentioned earlier, the Pope has predicted that another planet was out there thousands of years ago. This is not just the Pope, but many different religions as well. According to NASA, there’s about an 80 percent chance that Nibiru is out there. While it’s not 100 percent, those are good statistics.

Many logic based thinkers would take that as evidence against a god but think about those with faith. To them, the prophecy has come true and NASA just proved it. Potentially, this will bring religion to great heights not seen for some time.

7. PLANET X FACTS: THE POPE IS QUIETLY RELEASING NASA'S PROOF OF NIBIRU7. PLANET X FACTS: THE POPE IS QUIETLY RELEASING NASA’S PROOF OF NIBIRU

As one can imagine, NASA’s information regarding Planet X is influential. It’s a very delicate matter that has the potential to change the world. For that reason, the Pope is being careful with his followers. Surely, there are many who would overreact at the proof of Nibiru. The Vatican doesn’t want a riot on their hands so they are slowly and methodically releasing news about NASA’s discovery.

Fortunately for them, mainstream media has their hands full. Between the U.S. election, European immigration crisis and everything else, the general public remains distracted from any news the Vatican has. They still release it, however, it’s not getting the coverage it perhaps deserves. This is fine for the Pope. Now, he can better formulate a plan on how to keep the church together amidst a time of great challenge.

8. PLANET X FACTS: NASA’S NIBIRU MEANS THE RETURN OF SATAN SAYS THE POPE

According to the Pope prophecy found in scripture, half-human creatures roamed the earth after the Noahic flood. These hybrid beings were not gods, but devils and apparently, they are due to come back once again. How does this fit in with Planet X? Allegedly, Nibiru is a demon planet. As it comes closer to Earth so do the devils that inhabit it.

Of course, one would never hear about this from NASA. Perhaps they are in denial or simply don’t believe it. On the other hand, these devils might just be a metaphor for the destruction that an incoming planet would have on Earth.

8. PLANET X FACTS: NASA'S NIBIRU MEANS THE RETURN OF SATAN SAYS THE POPE Astrophysicist Meeting with Aliens from Proxima B; NASA knows... NASA Found Planet X Full of Aliens Close to Earth - Clapway Clapway9. PLANET X FACTS: NASA AND THE POPE STOLE THE NAME NIBIRU FROM THE SUMERIANS

The term “Nibiru” comes from the ancient Sumerian stone tablets and writings that are thousands of years old. Nibiru actually means “Planet of the crossing” The Sumerian Culture is the oldest civilization known to us. The Pope and NASA simply took this information and translated it into their own beliefs.

If one reads the English version of the bible, they will see many correlations relating to the Sumerian Culture. While the Sumerian’s didn’t know the precise location of Planet X, they predicted its existence. Now, science is just filling in the gaps.

10. PLANET X FACTS: NIBIRU MAY PROVE THAT SCIENCE AND RELIGION ARE EVIL

No one would argue that the Pope and NASA have great reputations. The Pope is the leader of the Christian world while NASA is responsible for some of the best discoveries this century. However, with Planet X looming, are these two stalwarts of society really that honorable? After all, it’s science that will unleash the evil of Nibiru onto the world. Without science, we would remain a peaceful race on Earth. Climate change wouldn’t be an issue without technology. Furthermore, without religion, there are no wars.

Will all this talk of Planet X, one must think “is it worth pursuing?” Some think we have a Pandora’s box situation on our hands. We’re getting closer to opening it. NASA will stop at nothing to prove their hard work paid off. Meanwhile, the Pope and religion will continue to divide us as we await our final days.

#20 Why Is the Vatican the Largest and Longest Owners of Telescope Observatories, Including the Newest Named L.U.C.I.F.E.R.?

the dedication plaque of the VATT reads:
plaqueL-s

This new tower for studying the stars has been erected during the XV year of the reign of John Paul II on this peaceful site so fit for such studies, and it has been equipped with a new large mirror for detecting the faintest glimmers of light from distant objects. May whoever searches here night and day the far reaches of space use it joyfully with the help of God.

The Vatican’s latest ….The  L.U.C.I.F.E.R. Telescope

A key to understanding how long the myth of a global heliocentric, agnostic, universe has been perpetuated on all is to understand how long and deep the Vatican has been involved with observing the heavens all the way back to Copernicus, (who himself became a catholic priest in the last years of his life and studied cannon law).

Through owning all of the information coming from the heavens, along with NASA, they been able to steer and control the narratives that we all learn about what is, and has been going on in our universe.

These narratives have include controlled opposition stories of scientific breakthroughs by Copernicus, Newton, Kepler and Galileo who all had their findings vetted through the Royal Society of England, who validated scientific theory through the 19th century, as well as the Vatican.

The Vatican also owns most of the early books of antiquity on astronomy as well as owning the most patents on celestial observatories. Strange for an organization who was adamant of a geocentric universe.

Why would they set up the earliest observatories right at the end of the Dark Ages, that continues to this day some 500 years later, if they were so dead set on maintaining that the Earth was the center of the universe?

They allegedly crucified and burned at the stake heretics like Bruno, and exiled Galileo, for their trying to prove that the Sun was center of our solar system, not the Earth. And the story goes that Copernicus waited until on his death-bed before publishing the work that changed everything we knew about our relation to the universe,  On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres.

NY Times: Vatican Science Panel Told By Pope – Galileo Was Right

Why would they then be the first to build telescopes to look into space and continue to this day? Why,  when it took until 1992 for the Vatican to pardon Galileo?

The 500 year Great Lie can easily be understood in that the Vatican, the Royal Society of London and Nazi German run NASA have controlled all information from space about our place in the Universe and all stories related up until this very day.

All pictures, and stories of space come from NASA, yet little is heard from Vatican observatories as to their conclusions as to what their most sophisticated telescopes are finding. Why? The only answer being that central casting and planning want it that way.

****

Early Masonic magicians like Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton, along with their modern Masonic astro-not counter-parts like Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins, hand-in-hand with NASA and world Freemasonry using everything from books, magazines, and television to computer-generated imaging, have succeeded, in the minds of the masses, to pick up the fixed Earth, shape it into a ball, spin it in circles, and throw it around the Sun! In schools where every professor’s desk is adorned with a spinning Earth-globe, we are lectured on the “heliocentric” theory of the universe, shown images of ball-planets and videos of men suspended in space. The illusion created, connivingly convincing, has entranced the world’s population into blindly believing a maleficent myth. (Source)

At the exact era that science was allegedly replacing the Vatican’s teachings that the Earth was the center of the universe and solar system, the Roman Catholic church was planning to build the very first large observatories of the heavens.
At nearly the same exact time, in 1609, Galileo Galilei built his first telescope by learning how to grind his own glass to make his star viewer. (Source)

One hundred years earlier, the Guttenberg Press invention, (taking credit from the Chinese who developed the printing press in the mid 11th century), brought books to the masses of Europe.

The church held most knowledge in books which had laboriously been handwritten by priests until then. This was followed by the build out of book publishing directed by the Vatican. In fact, most of the early book publishing companies were in and around Rome for the first hundred years books became available to the masses. (Though printed in 1450’s in Germany, the Gutenberg Bible was written in Latin.)
In Italy, a center of early printing, print shops had been established in 77 cities and towns by 1500. At the end of the following century, 151 locations in Italy had seen at one time printing activities, with a total of nearly three thousand printers known to be active. Despite this proliferation, printing centres soon emerged; thus, one third of the Italian printers published in Venice.[54]
They controlled the information content, the scientists of astronomy were controlled by both the Vatican, as evidenced by Copernicus becoming a Roman Catholic priest in his later days, and the Royal Society of London, owned by the Crown of Engalnd.
It wasn’t until 1822, the Congregation of the Holy Office removed the prohibition on the publication of books treating of the earth’s motion in accordance with modern astronomy and Pope Pius VII ratified the decision:
The most excellent [cardinals] have decreed that there must be no denial, by the present or by future Masters of the Sacred Apostolic Palace, of permission to print and to publish works which treat of the mobility of the earth and of the immobility of the sun, according to the common opinion of modern astronomers, as long as there are no other contrary indications, on the basis of the decrees of the Sacred Congregation of the Index of 1757 and of this Supreme [Holy Office] of 1820; and that those who would show themselves to be reluctant or would disobey, should be forced under punishments at the choice of [this] Sacred Congregation, with derogation of [their] claimed privileges, where necessary.
 Before pardoning Galileo in 1992, the Vatican, in 1979 set up a Galileo Study group.

In a solemn audience, held on 10 November 1979 before the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the College of Cardinals and the Diplomatic Corps to the Holy See, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Albert Einstein, John Paul II requested that theologians, scholars and historians, animated by a spirit of sincere collaboration, will study the Galileo case more deeply …”This desire was concretized in the constitution by the Pope in July 1981 of a commission to “coordinate the research of theologians, scientists and historians which would help to further clarify the events which occurred between Galileo and the Church and, more generally, the Ptolemaic – Copernican controversy of the 16th and 17th centuries in which the Galileo affair is situated“.

The commission consisted of four working groups to deal with exegetics, general culture, science and epistemology, and history and jurisprudence. The task of the commission was officially described as a scholarly and calm reflection, founded on objective evidence and emphatically not a new trial nor an attempt at rehabilitation.

As co-director of the working group for science and epistemology George Coyne, S.J., Director of the Vatican Observatory, initiated a series of research publications entitled, STUDI GALILEIANI. (Source)

So it would seem that though the Vatican has held most of the knowledge of space for over three centuries now with all their observatories, they are only in the modern era beginning to exam the teachings of those scientists who changed the course of history and refuted the Roman Catholic Church.

Hmm.

****

The Vatican set up one of the first observatories back in the 16th century and has continued to this day with the recent buildout of its newest observatory called LUCIFER, or LUCI, depending on what you read.

 

L.U.C.I.F.E.R.

“L.U.C.I.F.E.R., which stands for “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research,” is a chilled instrument attached to a telescope in Arizona. And yes, it’s named for the Devil, whose name itself means “morning star” [and which] happens to be right next to the Vatican Observatory on Mt. Graham in Tucson”.

The LBT observing instruments split into single beam instruments receiving light from one primary mirror only, and instruments combining the beams of the two mirrors while conserving their phase relation (interferometers). Each of the two telescopes is equipped with three single beam instruments: a prime focus camera, an optical spectrograph (MODS), and a near-infrared instrument (LUCI, formerly LUCIFER).

The 1.8 meter Alice P. Lennon Telescope and its Thomas J. Bannan Astrophysics Facility, known together as the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT), is a Gregorian telescope observing in the optical and infrared which achieved ‘first light’, the first starlight to pass through the telescope onto a detector, in 1993.

VATT is part of the Mount Graham International Observatory situated on Mount Graham in southeast Arizona, and is operated by the Vatican Observatory, one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world, in partnership with The University of Arizona.

LUCIFER Built On Sacred Indian Burial Grounds

The means through which they went about acquiring sacred Indian burial land is also another dark stain on the dark agenda of the Roman Catholics Jesuits to control all knowledge (and propaganda) about space.

In 1873, Mount Graham was removed from the boundaries of the San Carlos Reservation and placed in public domain. The spiritual value of Mount Graham to the Apache was not considered. This action set the stage for conflict a century later

In 1984, the University of Arizona and the Vatican selected Mount Graham as a site for a complex of 18 telescopes. The fact that this is a sacred place for the Apache was not taken into consideration. To get around the legal barriers of the American Indian Religious Freedoms Act, the University hired a lobbying firm to put pressure on Congress to remove this, and other, roadblocks. The area in question is administered by the U.S. Forest Service.

Following the declarations of the sacredness of Mount Graham by the Apache Survival Coalition and the San Carlos Apache Tribe, the Vatican in 1991declared that Mt. Graham was not sacred because it lacked religious shrines. Jesuit Father George Coyne, director of the Vatican Observatory, indicated that he could not find an authentic Apache who thought the mountain was sacred.

Father Coyne stated that to convince him that the mountain was sacred he would need to see evidence of shrines and that he would not accept Apache oral history or statements by Apache-speaking Euro-American anthropologists.

Father Coyne further declared that Apache beliefs were “a kind of religiosity to which I cannot subscribe and which must be suppressed with all the force we can muster.”

The Arizona Republic (Phoenix, Arizona) reports that the Jesuit Father Charles W. Polzer calls opposition to the construction of the telescope complex on top of Mount Graham “part of a Jewish conspiracy” and comes from the Jewish lawyers of the American Civil Liberties Union who are out to undermine and destroy the Catholic Church.

The Vatican has collaborations with all major astronomy institutions, so coordinating how information is released is well coordinated;

The Observatory carries out these programs in collaboration with many astronomical research institutes in countries including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Finland, Italy, Lithuania, South Africa, the United States, and as members of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (ICRA). In 1987 the Observatory in collaboration the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences in Berkeley, California, began a series of interdisciplinary study seminars bringing together science, philosophy and theology on the theme of divine action from a scientific perspective. (Source)

The Vatican works hand in glove with NASA and major universities. This link is crucial to understanding how 500 years of a massive lie can be perp’d through the Vatican, Freemasons and NASA.

Captivating comments from Jesuit priests like Guy Consolmagno—a leading astronomer who often turns up in media as a spokesman for the Vatican who has worked at NASA and taught at Harvard and MIT and who currently splits his time between the Vatican Observatory and laboratory (Specola Vaticana) headquartered at the summer residence of the Pope in Castel Gandolfo, Italy, and Mt. Graham in Arizona. (Source)

Keepers of the Knowledge of Heliocentric Astronomy, The Vatican

The library at Castel Gandolfo contains more than 22,000 volumes and possesses a valuable collection of rare antique books including works of Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Kepler, Brahe, Clavius, and Secchi. In addition there is a unique meteorite collection from which a knowledge of the early history of the solar system is being derived. Research results are published in international journals. The Annual Report is distributed to more than 400 institutes around the world.

Teachers to the New Up and Coming Astronomers, The Vatican

In 1986 in Castel Gandolfo, the Vatican Observatory organized a month-long Summer School in Astronomy and Astrophysics for 25 students from around the world taught by eminent scholars invited for the occasion.

 “Dedicated in 1993, the VATT utilizes some of the most advanced and innovative optics, electronics and mechanics available — once again positioning the Vatican at the forefront of astronomy.”

The Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical institutes in the world. Papal interest in astronomy can be traced to Pope Gregory XIII who had the Tower of the Winds built in the Vatican in 1578 and later called on Jesuit astronomers and mathematicians to study the scientific data and implications involved in the reform of the calendar which occurred in 1582.

From that time and with some degree of continuity the Holy See has manifested an interest in and support for astronomical research.  These early traditions of the Observatory reached their climax in the mid-nineteenth century with research conducted at the Roman College by the famous Jesuit, Father Angelo Secchi, the first to classify stars according to their spectra.

With these rich traditions as a basis and in order to counteract the longstanding accusations of hostility of the Church towards science, Pope Leo XIII in his Motu Proprio Ut Mysticam of 14 March 1891 formally refounded the Vatican Observatory and located it on a hillside behind the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Several religious orders contributed personnel and directors to the Observatory, including Barnabites, Oratorians, Augustinians, and Jesuits. For a little more than four decades astronomical research was carried out, including a prominent international program to map the whole sky. (Source)

Vatican Observatory Brief History

1582

The Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical institutes in the world. Papal interest in astronomy can be traced to Pope Gregory XIII who had the Tower of the Winds built in the Vatican in 1578 and later called on Jesuit astronomers and mathematicians to study the scientific data and implications involved in the reform of the calendar which occurred in 1582. From that time and with some degree of continuity the Holy See has manifested an interest in and support for astronomical research.  These early traditions of the Observatory reached their climax in the mid-nineteenth century with research conducted at the Roman College by the famous Jesuit, Father Angelo Secchi, the first to classify stars according to their spectra. With these rich traditions as a basis and in order to counteract the longstanding accusations of hostility of the Church towards science, Pope Leo XIII in his Motu Proprio Ut Mysticam of 14 March 1891 formally refounded the Vatican Observatory and located it on a hillside behind the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica.

1863

From that time, the Papacy has manifested an interest in and support for astronomical research. In fact, several pontifical observatories were established in Rome, including the Observatory of the Roman College, the Observatory on the Capitoline Hill and the Specola Vaticana (or Vatican Observatory). These early traditions of observational astronomy reached their climax in the mid-nineteenth century with the research of the Jesuit, Fr. Angelo Secchi, at the Roman College. The most prolific of those who first classified stars according to their spectra, Fr. Secchi is often referred to as the “Father of Modern Astrophysics” and his technique remains important in modern research.

1891

Following the unification of Italy in 1870, the pontifical observatories became state property.  Despite this setback, the Vatican continued its support of astronomy, and in an effort to counteract the accusations that there was a conflict between the Church and science, Pope Leo XIII formally re-founded the Specola Vaticana (Vatican Observatory) in 1891.

1935

From a hillside behind St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican astronomers studied the heavens, taking part in an international program to map the whole sky.  By the 1930s, however, the city’s lights had begun to blot out the fainter stars, and in 1935 Pope Pius XI moved the Observatory to the papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, a town in the Alban Hills about 25 kilometers outside Rome.

1987

New technology developed by Roger Angel and colleagues at the Steward Observatory offered significant promise for developing a more powerful telescope at considerable cost savings. Collaborating with the Steward Observatory, the Vatican Observatory built the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) on Mt. Graham in southeastern Arizona. Funding for the project was only possible with the generosity of private, philanthropic support. Hence, in 1987 the Vatican Observatory Foundation was established.

1993 (note just one year after the pardon of G.G.)

Dedicated in 1993, the VATT utilizes some of the most advanced and innovative optics, electronics and mechanics available — once again positioning the Vatican at the forefront of astronomy.
