A short comment by David onBen’s latest. Part of Ben’s full report refers to new US type currency, linkedhere. Over the last few years, I’ve seen a number of “the new republic currency is out” type articles, and have yet to see any of those new bills around. We shall see.
“…the US currency we were directed to is very clearly and obviously a complete fraud.The websiteis bare-bones, has almost no content on it whatsoever, and is an example of taking an additional word and adding it on to the front of another credible URL, in this case for the USPS.
“We should be aware that there is awesome counterfeiting being done, sothis may be deliberately planted disinformation to stop the real money from being interfered with.
“Lots of great and inspiring data here other than this one very obvious problematic issue.”
Not much to report this week until my article comes out, other than to say that the US currency we were directed to is very clearly and obviously a complete fraud.
The website is bare-bones, has almost no content on it whatsoever, and is an example of taking an additional word and adding it on to the front of another credible URL, in this case for the USPS.
The appearance of the alleged money lacks sophistication, including straight lines and Arial font, and appears little more than a Photoshop effort that took one individual a few days to complete.
We should be aware that there is awesome counterfeiting being done, so this may be deliberately planted disinformation to stop the real money from being interfered with.
Lots of great and inspiring data here other than this one very obvious problematic issue. I am finally moving into a position where I can sit down and bang out a mega-article on everything going on without significant problems requiring my attention first.
There can be no doubt the United States is in the throes of a revolution. As a part of this, US military sources say “44 wildfires in the Southern states of Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina smoked out underground cabalists,” making it clear a real purge is ongoing.
The Pentagon sources are also saying “another cabal spacecraft escaping earth was shot down over Florida on November 21st.” Yet a further cabal spacecraft was shot down off the coast of Fukushima, on November 22nd after it attacked Japan with an earthquake weapon, White Dragon Society sources in Asia say. A video of the craft going down can be seen at this link.
For those of you who think this is too far-fetched, please bear in mind that stealth jets were flying for close to 30 years before they were revealed to the public. That means the F-35 flying turkey is just a diversion and the US military has stuff that is at least 30 years ahead of what we are being shown.
Speaking about the military, Pentagon sources say they are pushing to have generals appointed as Secretary of State and as Secretary of Defense. In particular, they are pushing to have Marine General John Kelly as Secretary of State.
The Pentagon sources are also saying Trump will have a “private army of 2 million veterans, bikers and gun owners to confront Hillary thugs in DC for the inauguration.”
Newly appointed Education Secretary Betsy Devos will be “another general in the Trump cabinet” since she has her own army run by her brother Erik Prince who founded Blackwater with her money, the sources add. This means the mercenaries will no longer be sub-contracting for the Khazarian mob. If so, then it really is game over for the Khazarians.
Also, four separate sources, two Pentagon, one CIA and one ruling bloodline family say some major financial announcements are coming soon, possibly on December 1st. One announcement which will have a big impact on the gold market is that
Below is the text only version of a new article written by Therese Zumi about how we can prepare for The Event spiritually by staying close with our loved ones and practically by stocking up extra food for the transitional period during The Event.
As we grow closer in time to The Event I would like to try in my humble opinion to give our readers some thoughts about where we ought to have some of our focus right now. Sometimes people have asked Cobra what kind of protection that they might need now and after The Event to be able to maintain their balance. He has clearly pointed out that after The Event the negative forces will all be absolutely removed and there will be no need for protection at all. Right now despite our greatest efforts to maintain harmony in all of our relationships, it can be comforting to know that when we fail to do this there are reasons that we are mostly unaware of, and that the technology of the veil is blocking our higher abilities. At the time of The Event when the veil has been removed we will very quickly awaken to who we really are, we will finally become more fully acquainted with our own inner power and ability to truly love.
In general we the people need to be aware at this time that ‘leaders’, politicians and people in positions of power nearly always have ulterior motives in their seeming allegiance to the people. We might want to believe that they are seriously listening to and truly caring about the needs of people in general, yet more than 90% of politicians worldwide are still very much in the hands of one or another cabal faction. The Jesuits control both the Rockefeller Illuminazi faction as well as the Rothschild faction. They always play on both sides of the coin.
We need to look beyond any seeming current flattering situations and avoid putting too much focus upon supporting politicians and people in power.
We must act independently and keep to our original principled aims of not accepting any half measures or attempts at partial disclosure of any kind. They know that people want truth and they plan to give people some of the truth here and there BUT the aim will always be to stay in power in new guises, with new faces.
Does anyone in their right mind believe that the so called GCR can come into effect while we still have these puppet politicians in power? Their world of corruption is still in place. Would you trust any of the politicians we now see with any GCR? I believe that the only way we can have an RV on this planet is when the present financial system is completely closed down, along with arrests of those corrupt politicians by a united positive military worldwide. That’s part of what The Event entails and that’s the only way we can have the change that will benefit humanity as a whole.
Be Ready for The Event
Our focus now should really only be in one place. Our aim should be to become day by day through decisive action / being the people that we truly are deep down. Every single effort we make in bringing warm and loving communication, truth tempered with respect for our peers, into our personal relationships is gold worth. Remember that within a very short period of time after The Event we will have the opportunity to develop close relationships with both Galactic Family members, Resistance Movement (most of them galactic family beings) members and as Cobra has recently explained in this link,http://2012portal.blogspot.se/2016/11/the-blue-and-event.htmlwe will also be communicating with Agartha.
These groups of humanoid beings like ourselves are not in any way used to dealing with negative energy in their interactions and so every attempt that we now make to behave like 5th dimensional beings will be to great advantage soon. All Relationships Will Improve Immediately after The Event.
There will be a huge improvement in relationships between men and women at the time of and after The Event. Cobra has said“old conflicts and dramas in relationships will ebb out as often these have been fueled by archon interferences”which will no longer exist. He had earlier explained that“Etheric Archons are very allergic to a few things. First to the energy of Love, especially to Love between a man and a woman. When they see a happy couple, they want to destroy the Love between them, because that Love gives the power to the non-physical Light forces to remove the etheric Archons and their minions.”
When the veil is removed true love will be rediscovered and this will improve relationships enormously.
What We Can Do NOW to be prepared.
Cobra suggested the following in the August interview here on PFC. Right now our“highest purpose is to stop fighting with one another and realise that negativity is engineered by archon technology and instead we should start supporting one another.”He added that this is not so simple to do but the only way to go, it’s very simple but very effective advice.
Furthermore he said that“they win always if they succeed in creating more disharmony and conflict in your personal relationships. That has always been their goal.”Our focus needs to be upon increasing loving communication, listening patiently to one another, blessing the others unique point of view even though it differs from ours.
This advice is of course for all of our relationships not just those close personal ones and not in least now at this time when we Lightworkers need to be aware of not allowing differing opinions to create conflict among us and weaken our united force for change.
Forgiving the Cabal
We might as well get it over with! One day soon we will look back at all of the madness and understand clearly that the cabal are either very sad lost beings, or they are in the hands of very sad psychopathic / sociopathic rulers who lost their minds a long time ago. Just like the archon leader who was arrested and began cooperating with the Light Forces some years ago they too – many of them – when they clearly see what they have done – when they realize that everyone on this planet including them could have had abundance in the Light – may make the same decision that the main archon made namely to return to the Galactic Central Sun and start all over again as a completely new soul. I truly believe that we can speed up the arrival of The Event by forgiving them now in unison.
Importance of Simplicity Now
This website is where you can find a huge amount of information like the ‘Community Leaders Brief’http://communityleadersbrief.org/available in 29 languages, which will be useful at the time of The Event. Whoever you are it might be useful to have some copies of this on hand right now in readiness should they be needed. About 5-6 months ago David Wilcock mentioned how he needed to replenish his stock of extra food to have on hand when transition time is here. He had like myself already stocked extra groceries and eaten up that stock about three times earlier. Now don’t take my word on this but I myself feel that stocking food to last you and your family for 5-6 days does not seem as important now as it might have earlier. So what if the food stores run out because people go crazy buying food when The Event takes place? I figure right now that I will have something left to eat in my pantry and my family and friends will also have some food at home and we can join forces and make some soup or something and survive very well until normalcy returns. My God people have been starving in countries in Africa for decades. We are not going to starve to death from a lack of food for a few days! Those however who have necessary medicines should see to it that they have them stocked to last a couple of weeks just in case. And if you have a car refilling petrol / gas when you reach half tank is advised.
In my mind that which is more important than all of the above right now is the subject matter that I discussed with you at the beginning of this article.I truly believe that it is paramount now that we stick together with loved ones at this time.At the time of The Event some of us might find ourselves involved somehow in helping to coordinate things locally in our communities. However, the vast majority of awakened people will be occupied with their less awake families’, friends and loved ones helping them to adjust to all of the astounding information they will be receiving.
Christmas is coming in a months’ time. Why not practice for the time of The Event this Christmas. Let’s try to be the person in our family circle that encourages gathering and celebrating our togetherness rather that too much focus on, decorations, food, presents and so on. Let’s focus on simplicity and the true spirit of Christmas. Let’s be wayshowers in this now as the society we will be building after The Event will be based on truthful, sincere relations with others. Even if the joy of creativity will continue there will be less focus on outer trimmings and more focus on our connections with one another on Nova Gaia.
The liberation of the planet earth from Khazarian gangster control is now snowballing. The UK liberated itself with the Brexit vote while the Americans freed themselves by electing Donald Trump as President. Trump’s election was followed immediately by anti-Khazarian regime change in Bulgaria and Moldova. Next, a Presidential election in Austria and a referendum in Italy, both due on December 4th, are expected to liberate those countries. Following this will be the likely election of Marine Le Pen as President of France in May and the ouster of German Chancellor Angelina Merkel sometime in 2017.
In South Korea as well, Khazarian puppet President Park Geun Hye has been exposed as totally corrupt and is being removed from power. In Japan too, right-wing forces are moving against Khazarian proxies like Yasuyuki Nambu of the Pasona Group, Masayoshi Son of Softbank and others to prepare the way for the liberation of this country.
Later in the game the European Union, the United Nations and subsidiary organizations like the IMF and the World Bank are also expected to collapse before being replaced by more representative, meritocratic, democratic and competently run institutions.
Much of this outcome hinges on the nearly over but still not finished power struggle in Washington D.C.
The first senior staff members selected by Donald Trump are all US armed forces veterans making it clear his government will be strongly linked to the US military. This means the men with guns are finally taking action.
Navy veteran Steve Bannon is Chief Strategist, army veterans Mike Pompeo, Jeff Sessions and Michael Flynn respectively have the jobs of CIA head, Attorney General and Director of National Security. So far no neocons or Khazarians have been selected.
A Pentagon source says the names of neocons like Rudolph Giuliani, John Bolton, David Petraeus and Mitt Romney were “floated so trump can say ‘you’re fired.’”
New National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn summed up the situation as follows:
“We just went through a revolution…This is probably the biggest election in our nation’s history, since bringing on George Washington when he decided not to be a king. That’s how important this is.”
In a clear sign this really is a revolution, CIA sources tell us that arch-criminal George Soros has been “taken out,” as reported by this writer on November 20th. Pentagon sources are saying that others on the list who need to be removed from the scene include Senator John “ISIS” McCain and Edgar Bronfman who “owns McCain.”
Other Pentagon sources say that a special “navy doomsday plane” was sent to fly from California to Denver last week to
deploy “special weapons” in order to “drive cabalists out of underground bases” so that they could be arrested.
Speaking about underground bases, White Dragon Society sources in Antarctica say:
” One of our team members in Antarctica saw David Rockefeller with his son Richard at ‘The Base’ along with several other elites from Europe. There is a top secret meeting taking place there now. The word is that they are preparing for January 20.”
Other sources say they saw members of the Rothschild family at that Antarctic base too.
(The Russian documentary linked below is recommended as the most thoroughly researched background information this writer could find on secret Antarctic bases,
It is a good guess these elites are hoping to find shelter or else a ticket off-planet at that base but they are unlikely to find either because all the evidence indicates this planet is under some form of quarantine.
In any case, judging from the 2017 occult cover of the Rothschild and P2 Freemason Agnelli family owned Economist, the bloodline families are in a state of confusion. The cover, seen at the link below, is called “Planet Trump” and features tarot cards.
Here is this writer’s first stab and what it means:
The first card, called “the tower,” shows the Catholic Church being split between its communist and traditional Christian factions.
The second, called “Judgement” shows Donald Trump holding the symbols of power, meaning most likely they expect a Neurenberg type tribunal to be convened when he assumes office.
The third, called “the World” shows symbols of the gnostic Illuminati, the family owned central banks and monotheism unified under what appears to be a moon god. Above them are what appear to be Maria (the Goddess Isis), the holy book and the sun god. It seems they think the world will be unified under these symbols.
The fourth called “the Hermit” shows North America leading a populist movement against TPP, TTIP and the EU, indicating they have gone against their “globalist” agenda.
The fifth, called “death,” shows plagues, tsunamis, fish die-offs, nuclear weapons and crop failures and is probably meant as a threat by the bloodline families to unleash these calamities if they are cornered.
The sixth, called “the magician,” seems to indicate they expect 3d printing and virtual reality to be the biggest high tech trends of the year.
The seventh, called the “Wheel of Fortune” shows a smiling Marine Le Pen and a frowning Angela Merkel waiting for the results of elections indicating they expect Le Pen to win and Merkel to lose. This writer could not identify the third person.
The final one, “the star,” seems to show pictures of pop culture personalities who will have strong financial backing during the year. The only one this pop culture knowledge deficient writer could identify appears to be Lady Gaga.
What their predictions are showing most of all though is a clear sign they no longer control the destiny of this planet and that is why the resorted to tarot cards.
Since the Rothschilds and Angellis appear to be out of the loop on future events now, here is a bit of what sources in the new regime are saying is coming up.
For one thing, as soon as President Barack Obama loses his ability to issue pardons on January 20th, there are going to be a flood of revelations coming out of the US agencies about pedophilia and human sacrifice carried out by many well-known US and European politicians and personalities. The Bush/Clinton family, Mitt Romney, Carl Rove and others are expected to be included in these revelations, Pentagon sources say.
The Rothschilds and their kinfolk can also expect hearings about what really caused the Asian tsunami of 2006, the Japanese tsunami and nuclear disaster of 2011, the Haiti tsunami etc. In other words, the world will find out they are a bunch of ruthless mass murderers.
The coming months will also reveal a “Trump/Putin tag team that will kill ISIS as a prelude to a US-EU-Russian and Vatican Christian bloc to contain China and terminate the global Khazarian mafia,” the sources say.
The Chinese, for their part, are already leading towards a form of Christianity with Chinese features, Chinese secret society sources say. They point out that many of the features that separate Christianity from Judaism actually came from their founder Mozi 墨子(450 to 291 BC). He promoted universal love and came up with the idea of a heaven that only the virtuous could enter. He also came up with the idea that if you give a person a piece of bread you only feed them for one day but if you give them a fishing rod and teach them to fish, you can feed them for life.
The point being is that the Asian secret societies are already sold on the idea of make love, not war, with the West. They just don’t want to be raped, robbed and killed.
The obstacle to a world of universal love is now the still unsettled battle for control of the financial system and thus the process for deciding what humanity does in the future.
On that front, the latest news is the Dutch delegation that is visiting Indonesia this week on behalf of the Dutch royal family is upset that three Dutch World War 2 sunken warships that were discovered off the coast of Indonesia in 2002 have vanished.
“It is all about the Gold that was in those ships. The Dutch were trying to bring part of the ancient royal treasure that they had stolen from the Indonesia Royals of Java and Sulawesi to the Netherlands so the Japanese would not get it,” a WDS source in Indonesia explains.
It sounds like the European bloodline families were counting on this gold to back their efforts to keep control of the world’s financial system and now they are back to square one.
If there is in fact no gold, or if it has already all been stolen and used, we need to find this out ASAP. We cannot wait forever for these legendary million ton stashes of gold to appear. If the gold does not exist, a new reality based financial system can be made without it. Money can be backed by real estate, commodities, industrial facilities, labour etc.
As soon as a new, transparently, meritocratically and honestly run financial system is launched many wonderful things can start right away.
The Russians, for example, have already given the go ahead for a tunnel linking Siberia with Alaska. People and freight could then move by train from New York to London via Moscow.
Here is a facebook post written by Nova Biscotti about Light Workers and Light Warriors. Although there may be different in focus, we are all ultimately working towards the same goal and therefore should be unite with each other.
I read a very lively debate in a certain FB group about pedophilia earlier today. While I can empathize with people on both sides, there are several important points which I would like to emphasize regarding the issue.
1) Pedophilia is a phenomenon which can only exist 'in the shadows of darkness'. Like a mold or fungus, one can only get rid of it by exposing it to light and by cleaning out whatever (or whomever) is causing it grow and fester. As unpleasant as this subject is, it strikes at the core of the Cabal control structure. While it is not an obvious analogy, the books/movies of "The Hunger Games" mention a key point which is chilling but reflective of the mindset of the Cabal:
"You are too weak and powerless to even protect your children from us."
2) The Veil Technologies were "Cranked to Eleven on a Ten-Point Scale" after the September 1 retaliation by the Chimera. One of the aspects of these more intense attacks is 'divide and conquer' - turning people against each other so that the masses cannot effectively unite against the Cabal elites.
What I saw in the lively debate was analogous to the massive hate and vitriol being spread by staunch Clinton & Trump supporters against the other group. By engaging in attacks against each other, we are only allowing ourselves to continue to be divided which ends up allowing the Cabal to maintain their grip on power.
Even though I support exposure of these issues online, the language used to do so via online forums needs to be gentle. If it is not, then conflicts explode into irrational hate-mongering. This results in the Chimera/Cabal laughing hysterically at us - that we are weak and easily divided.
3) I myself have issues sometimes being overwhelmed by negative information. My focus in 2016 has been less on reading online news sites and more on the actions I can take as an individual to hasten the EVENT. In short, I went deep inside and connected with my higher self to discover my mission, and I do my best to focus upon this even in the face of overwhelming interference.
All of us must do this to bring about the EVENT, because only one thing is powerful enough to dismantle the Veil & Plasma Octopus technologies: the Galactic Pulse/Heartbeat. The physics of this are more complex than simply a wave of energy moving at the speed of light. It is consciousness itself interacting with each of us as sentient beings. As each of us wakes up to our inner guidance and works on the mission we have during this incarnation on Earth, Source begins to understand that we are truly 'ready', this pulse will begin to race toward us energetically - faster than the speed of light - and it will cause the evolutionary transformation we so desperately seek.
4) I know the points above are very 'wordy', but I feel it is necessary to lay them out in a reasoned and emotionally balanced perspective.
Please understand where your fellow lightworkers & lightwarriors are coming from - emotionally, intellectually, and energetically. Read and listen - but also 'feel' what they are communicating. Despite the strength of the Veil tech, there are people who truly have a solid perspective regarding BOTH sides of the issue (whether to focus on what is wrong vs. what is right).
Lightwarriors tend to focus more on 'shedding light on that which is dark', while lightworkers wish to increase the light which is already present. Most of those people who wish to expose pedophilia are lightwarriors at their core, while those wishing to focus on the positive are lightworkers. Please understand, respect, and honor our individuals differences... because it is the diversity of our skill sets and missions which will truly make the EVENT possible. If we all had exactly the same skill set, then a massive operation like this would be completely impossible!
[Kp note: some of David’s comments refer to tarot cards, which is a reference to thelatest Economist cover, in the full article, which I couldNOTget to work. So I downloaded it and stored ithere at WP. Click that one… Iknowit works.]

Excellent report. The civilian journalists investigating “Pizzagate” are building a case so rapidly that we are having to watch YouTube videos on a daily basis to keep up with the speed of their research. The only major blind spot for the people making these videos is they do not realize that there is an Alliance driving these Wikileaks releases, and thus it is not only “up to us” to do something about this.
That being said, the grassroots efforts are very helpful. The revelations are sickening and certainly add a lot more depth to the filmed testimonies of Cathy O’Brien and Brice Taylor, which will hopefully start showing up in all of these videos as people realize who the long-term whistleblowers on this subject with the greatest credibility are.
Another seriously important point is that John Podesta is the character whose leaked emails have broken the whole thing. He has always been the most visible proponent of UFO-related disclosure in the government.
Podesta’s greatest regret after stepping down from the Obama administration to help Hillary’s campaign was that he “did not secure the release of the UFO files,” as said in a tweet. He then said “The truth is out there” in a hashtag.
Disclosure has always been the final move the Cabal can make to try to distract the public from an epic defeat. They should be wise enough by now to understand that their plans for nuking the planet or causing other types of mass death will never be authorized by the benevolent ETs.
Ben has always been very reticent to wade into this area, fearing a loss of credibility, though he has leaked a variety of data that lines up with it nonetheless.
FWIW, the dreams I have been having lately indicate that spectacular progress is soon to appear in the public eye, and as negative as it is, these Wikileaks revelations are the healing that needs to occur.
Two major issues with the Tarot cards jump out in terms of symbolism Ben does not see.
First, the Tower card is the Tower of Destruction, and symbolizes the fall of corrupt kings and queens. The Vatican is the spiritual center of the Cabal. This therefore refers to the destruction of the Cabal itself.
The fact that Russia is on one side of this split clearly underlines the key importance that Russia has played in the Alliance, including masterminding many of the most damaging hacks that have taken place — which we are starting to publicly see the results of now.
Secondly, the image of Trump on the Judgment card is a very clear homage to classic art of Christ sitting on the planet. This therefore is a mockery of elements of the public seeing Trump not only as their leader, but as a savior figure.
I am also surprised that Ben hasn’t stressed the appearance of Steve Pieczenik on the global scene. He is the Jack Ryan character from the Tom Clancy novels, and the subject of five major films.
The second Harrison Ford film, The Sum of All Fears, appears to tell the story of his time working in the White House and culminates with the President threatening his life, saying he doesn’t want to end up doing the “Potomac Two-Step” dance.
In an ironic synchronicity, the first Jack Ryan character was Alec Baldwin in “The Hunt for Red October,” and Baldwin is now SNL’s Trump-mocking main character.
Pieczenik is the first-ever high-ranking official to come forward and officially introduce us to the Alliance. Up until then it has only been Gordon Duff and the others at Veterans Today, Fulford, myself, Corey Goode, Pete Peterson and some of the other Project Camelot witnesses. Others have presented data that these prime sources have leaked.
The Pieczenik videos have been very exciting, as finally the Alliance has a spokesperson with a Cabinet-level background and five truth-telling movies and a host of spy thriller novels behind his name.
Furthermore, it has been fascinating to see Alex Jones turn in all of this and start to understand that not all the military and intelligence community is negative — in fact the majority of them are positive.
The new “Jason Bourne” film just came out and is only the latest of many films to be made by the Alliance. This film clearly depicts how a counter-coup against the Cabal is taking place in groups like the CIA thanks to its younger members. It also illustrates how companies like Google are being unwillingly threatened and controlled by the Cabal.
Never before have we seen so much action all at once. This is just the warm-up to a summary I need to post this week now that I am finally out of Colorado from another Gaia taping and am back at home with some time.
Don’t forget that they also sell the organs of the victims. This is very ugly stuff and everyone will have to go through a really dark period, the ultimate “Man in the Bedroom Effect” on a global level.
The Cabal used Tarot cards to indicate what is already happening, which they cannot control, as well as the fact that the future is uncertain.
