Weekly World News Discovers the Planet Saturn is actually a Giant UFO!   Leave a comment


bluez11

Forget about the scientific “facts” drummed into your head by school teachers.  Saturn is not a planet – it’s a colossal UFO!

That’s the assertion of controversial astronomer Dr. Eduardo Marquez, who has come forward with puzzling photos that appear to bolster the seemingly outlandish claim.

“new high-definition photos taken by the powerful 2.6-meter telepscope at our observatory show windows, cargo bays and even shuttle-craft-size saucers going  to and from the mammoth vehicle,” says Dr. Marquez, who captured the images with the Nordic Optical Telescope in the Canary Islands.

“Clearly this is not a natural body, but the creation of intelligent beings – an almost inconceivably huge flying saucer 74,900 miles in diameter.”

Shockingly, Dr. Marquez claims that NASA has known the truth for decades and is deliberately concealing it from the world.

When Pioneer 11 flew by Saturn on Sept. 1, 1979 and when Voyager 2 photographed it from just 21 million miles away in 1981, they couldn’t have missed these telltale features, He says.

“I believe NASA doctored those photos – and all since, including images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope – fearing that to inform the public that a spaceship larger than EArth is orbiting our sun would spark international panic.”

But terror is unwarranted, the scientist insists.

“Clearly, whoever built a craft that immense has the capacity to conquer Earth and could have done so any time in the past several thousand years,” Dr. Marquez says. “Since they haven’t done so, we can presume their intentions are not hostile.”

Saturn unique rings have long distinguished it from the other eight planets in the solar system.  To this day scientists aren’t certain about their composition and origin.  Prevailing theory is that they are made up largely of ice and were formed from moons shattered by impacts of comets and meteors.

But Dr. Marquez says that’s baloney.

“It always troubled me that the “rings” looked solid – in fact, it occurred to me last year, they look like he wing of a flying saucer,” he reveals.

“Training the telescope on Saturn under ideal conditions. I recently found that to be precisely the case.”

The scientist believes that Saturn is a “mother ship” from a farflung  star system, used as a base of operations for aliens who’ve been studying mankind for centuries.  He notes that a 1988 study showed that in 94 percent of saucer sightings, the trajectory of the craft indicated they were heading to or from Saturn.

“I believe all flying saucers encountered in our atmosphere come from the mother ship.” Dr. Marquez says.

The humongous craft probably has at least 5,000 decks and could accommodate “literally billions” of extraterrestrials.

“They have no need to conquer Earth – they doubtless have all the comforts of home in their planet-size spacecraft,” the expert says.

NASA officials deny doctoring any images and reject the astronomer’s accusation of a coverup. They call the egghead’s theory about Saturn “preposterous.”

“We know that this is a respected scientist, but it sounds like his trolley has jumped its tracks,” says a space agency spokesman.

PLANET FACTS:

- -If the diameter of Earth were 10 percent smaller or larger, all the life on the planet would either be frozen or burned up.

- If the fresh water of EArth (only 1.6 percent of the water on the planet) were divided equally among all the people on the planet, each one would get 40 million gallons.

– Uranus is the only planet that rotates on its side.

– The Venus day is longer than the Venus year. The planet spins on its axis once every 243 EArth days and orbits the sun once every 224 Earth days.

– Venus is much brighter than any other planet or star.  At its brightest, it can cast shadow and can even be seen during the daytime.

Leaked NASA photo taken of the rings near the UFO planet shows some type of Alien habitat.

Agitated Radical Muslims in Australia had plans to kill random citizens   Leave a comment

Australia launches anti-terror raids over plot to kill

Australian police have carried out major anti-terror raids triggered by a call from a senior Islamic State militant for “demonstration killings”, Prime Minister Tony Abbott says.

The raids, involving at least 800 heavily-armed officers, took place in Brisbane and Sydney.

Fifteen people were arrested and one person charged with “serious terrorism-related offences”, police said.

Police say the anti-terror operation was the largest in Australian history.

Addressing a press conference, Mr Abbott said “direct exhortations were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL (Islamic State) to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country”.

The news of an alleged plot to publicly behead a random Australian will shock many people here, including the vast majority of this country’s long-established moderate Muslim community.

Many Muslims are unhappy with what’s going on in Iraq and Syria but would never resort to violence. These raids risk antagonising the broader Islamic community.

But Australia, like many countries including Britain, is worried about the threat from Islamic State, not just abroad but at home. More than a decade on from Australia’s support for the US-led war in Iraq, the country finds itself embroiled in a conflict that is far from over.

Tony Abbott this week announced he is sending 600 troops to the Middle East to assist in the fight against Islamic State. Security forces clearly face a battle at home too.

“So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that’s why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.”

Reports in the Australian media said a plot involved beheading a random member of the public after draping them in an Islamic State flag.

‘Random attacks’

The raids began early on Thursday, with officers executing 25 search warrants across 12 Sydney suburbs.

They followed investigations into a Sydney-based group “alleged to have the intent to carry out random attacks on individuals” in Australia, the Australia Federal Police said in a statement.

“The police activity today was about preventing this group at the earliest possible opportunity and ensuring their plans did not come to fruition,” Acting AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin said.

Raids in Brisbane were not “directly linked” to the Sydney operation but related to a raid last week on an Islamic centre that led to two men being charged with terrorism offences, he said.

Last week, Australia raised its terror threat level to high amid concerns of the growing number of Australians “working with, connected to or inspired by” Islamist groups.

Officials say dozens of Australians have gone to fight in the Middle East for jihadist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (also known as the al-Nusra Front).

At least 60 Australians are believed to be fighting with jihadist groups in Syria and northern Iraq, and 15 Australians have been killed so far in these conflicts, including two suicide bombers.

About 100 more Australians are thought to be actively supporting these groups, police say.

Officials are worried about the impact of both returning fighters and supporters of these groups on domestic security.

It is the first time Australia’s threat level has moved from medium to high – the second-highest rank – since the system was introduced in 2003.

“Medium” means an attack could occur. “High” means an attack is likely and “extreme” means an attack is imminent or has occurred.

Australia has also recently committed troops to the fight against Islamic State.

Mr Abbott, who has been spending a week in an indigenous area in northern Australia, is heading back south to see off departing troops.

These Islamist bloodlusters are on the warpath. They have really thrown a major wrench in the machinery of the world. They will have to be confronted and hit hard. Imagine what will happen to individual freedoms if these idiots behead a random Canadian or American on the street.

Why are certain segments of Islamic men so screwed up? How easily can these idiots get brainwashed? What do they think they will achieve? They just can’t do well in western societies, and then they get bitter and hateful to the very societies that got them out of the sand and camel dung. Any of these unholy warriors plan anything in western countries, lock em up for a long time, then when they get out prison, put their sorry bearded faces on the first plane back to the lands of goats, sandstorms, blistering heat and prayers 5 times a day. Good riddance!

Get a load of this ragheads shirt.

Sweet Dreams: Horror Movie Pillows   Leave a comment


Dangerous Minds

The good people at Horror Decor have a line of printed pillows that are absolutely fabulous. The square ones come in small and large and cost $14 and $20, respectively; not all pillows come in both sizes. The rectangular ones cost $16.

I like horror movies, but I’m not sure about laying my head down onto Jack Torrance’s crazed writings from The Shinning.
