Anne Q&A Part 2

2020.09.23 05:33 Fireflair_kTreva Anne Q&A Part 2

Question: Anne, so many comments have been made about Surreal’s personality change in the latest book. I look at it as she went through the spooky house, and had the one time in bed with the Sadist that left her well, miserable. So going through the rut with the Sadist and actually coming to terms with herself wanting to have sex, instead of it being her business is hard for her to cope with. Can you shed light on why she was so terrified of sex with Daemon after that night in rut?
Anne: First part of the answer, the undercurrents of that night when the Sadist as lover invited Surreal to play were about a lot more than sex. Surreal can handle sex with Daemon Sadi. But that isn't all he is. Second part of the answer is in The Queen's Weapons.
Question: I have had a question about the Black Jewels books for many years. I started to notice that Jaenelle is never shown alone, but only through her interactions with others. I was wondering why we never see her in her moments of solitude.
Anne: The writer's answer is it felt intuitively right that we never experience any interior dialog or thoughts from Jaenelle. You're right; she is seen through everyone else's perceptions and interactions with her. Also, the three men--Saetan, Daemon, and Lucivar--and how their lives intertwined with hers was the driving force for me to tell the story.
Question: Is or was there a plan to make the Black Jewels trilogy into a movie(s)?
Anne: No plans for a movie at this time.
Question: Are scelties the only kind of canine kindred? Would there be different varieties of canine kindred based on topography? Huskies/Malmutes in areas with a lot of snow. Basenji in desert areas…
Anne: Going with many breeds would have been a crazymaker in terms of creating the world. So the Scelties are the only ones who are Blood. Same with the horses. Only a couple of breeds in Scelt have some bloodlines that are kindred. That doesn't mean there aren't other breeds of dogs or horses in the Realms, just that they don't have kindred.
Question: Hello! I'm so glad I can talk with everyone and ask questions to my favoutie author! Since I have a great passion for Daemon, I would like to know what his favorite book genre is and if you can give any recommendations about books with characters like him. Also, could you give us an idea of ​​how the old language sounds like?
Anne: Daemon is an eclectic reader. If you look at some of the books he discusses with Jillian, you'll see some of the genres. As far as books with characters like him, you would have to get recommendations from the folks here. For me, he's one of a kind. Can't tell you what the Old Tongue sounds like.
Question: The Black Jewels would make a great simulation game! What encourages your muse to write? What is the difference between uncut and cut jewels? Are jewels recycled: after one of the blood dies and becomes a whisper in the darkness will their jewels be given to another blood during their birthright or offering ceremony?
Anne: "No one knew where the Jewels had come from. If one was destined to wear a Jewel, it simply appeared on the Altar after the Birthright Ceremony or the Offering to the Darkness. Even when he was young, receiving an uncut Jewel—a Jewel that had never been worn by another of the Blood—was rare. His Birthright Red Jewel had been uncut. When he'd been gifted with the Black, it, too, had been uncut. But to receive an entire set of uncut Jewels . . . Saetan leaned over and tapped the Yellow Jewel with the tip of his nail. It flared, the fire in the center warning him off. He frowned, puzzled. The Jewel already identified itself as female, as being bonded to a witch and not a Blood male, but there was the faintest hint of maleness in it too. Jaenelle wiped the tears from her cheeks and sniffed." (Daughter of the Blood)
Question: I’ve always had a hard time imagining Eyrien wings. I never thought they were feathered, but do you have a comparison to what they look like?

Anne: Yes, Eyriens have dark, membranous wings. Calling an Eyrien a bat is an insult. Not as bad as calling one a Jhinka, but close.
Question: What do Jhinka wings look like?
Anne: Leathery. I don't see the Jhinka looking as physically well-formed as Eyriens.
Question: So, when I was reread the short story about the spiders, I realized that afaik, it's not mentioned whether or not they have a jewel. So, do the dream weaving spiders have/get jewels?
Anne: I don't think they need Jewels. They're not the same as the Blood in the way they came into being.
Question: Invisible Ring came after the trilogy, but Daemon/Jaenelle use the events from the trilogy to take out dorothea's taint. Did you already have that whole story in your head? Was it originally going to be part of the trilogy but cut for space?
Similar (but less desperately needed) question about Marian. Was her meeting Lucivar originally intended as part of Heir to the Shadows, or did you always plan it as a separate novella?
Anne: As I began writing the trilogy, I had made notes for the story that became The Invisible Ring. In fact, I had a couple of notes for the story that eventually became The Shadow Queen. I wrote Daughter of the Blood and Heir to the Shadows, and my agent was shopping it around, but it wasn't like anything else out there at that time so it wasn't an easy sell. My agent suggested writing a standalone book in that world, so I began writing The Invisible Ring. I think I was close to finishing first draft when BJT sold. Suddenly there were revisions to do on the first two books, Ring to finish drafting, and an accelerated due date for Queen of the Darkness, which I hadn't started writing! Yikes? Ring was drafted and Lia's solution fit the story. Using webs of power to wipe out Dorothea's taint was the solution in Queen. So the logical sequence, since Jared and Daemon knew each other, was that Jared left an account of what happened and left it at the Keep for Daemon. Which made a warm fuzzy author moment when I could see the connection in the two stories.
As for Lucivar and Marian's courtship, that was vague background story when I was writing Queen, and it simmered below the surface for several years before I wrote the story about how they got together. Love that story. Lucivar makes me laugh.
Question: Can Blood make the Offering if they have a broken Birthright?
Anne: No. If the Birthright Jewel is broken, that severs that person's potential in terms of power.
Question: Surreal was relieved to see that Jaenelle Saetien gained a jewel at her birthright (after initially coming back empty handed). But what about the children who do not gain a birthright? Are they able to obtain the White, Yellow, or Tiger Eye at their offerring? Also what caste is baby Andulvar?
Anne: Children who are not strong enough to acquire (that is, need a reservoir for their power) a Birthright Jewel can obtain a White, Yellow, or Tiger Eye at the Offering. At that point, a blood female would be a witch and have the title of Lady, and a blood male would be considered a Warlord. Note: the other castes would require the person to have a Birthright Jewel, even if it's a White.
Baby Andulvar is a Warlord Prince. Pity Marian.
Question: In the Shadow Queen Saetan glances at Daemon and thinks of him as a “strong adult male in his prime”. After reading The Queen’s Bargain I am confused why Saetan would not realize Daemon had not reached his prime yet?
Anne: If a man in his prime in our world is fully adult (think mid 20s) to the time when he reaches middle age (what the Blood refer to as the autumn years), Daemon was just coming into his prime when he met Jaenelle (at 1700 years). He'll be in his prime for a lot of centuries. (And, no, I'm not going to try to guess how many. My brain will blow up. :) )
Question: I just love Tersa, her efforts in holding Daemon's sanity before Jaenelle Angeline is ready to remember him and bring him back from Twisted Kingdom and all her efforts to take care of the Boy. My question is, is it known to the Caste that they can regain some of their lost craft in Twisted Kingdom? and is there someone else aside Tersa who crossed the Twisted Kingdom to regain lost craft?
Anne: To my knowledge, Tersa is an exception to a lot of things, and no one else has been able to regain their craft by sacrificing their sanity.
Question: Do the Witches who came before Janelle ever whisper their stories to you? It's always been in my head, the hall of paintings of those who were Witch, dreams made flesh. That maybe they whispered a bit of themselves to the writer.
Anne: No, they never have. But they have to compete with Daemon and Lucivar, so…
Question: In Queen of Darkness (chapter 13, part 9) Luthvian is killed by Hekatah. Luthvian had already transitioned to demon-dead but didn’t have enough strength to hold on. We see Luthvian’s internal dialog “Her Self would soon become a whisper in the Darkness. Perhaps, someday, when it had rested and regained some strength, the Self would leave the Darkness and return to the living Realms. Perhaps.”
Question 1: Does this mean that Luthvian’s Self could be “born” again? Does this world have reincarnation?
Question 2: If the answer above is yes, has any of the characters we love (or even hate) Self been born again? (I would especially love to hear that Char, the leader of the cildru dyathe, will have a second chance at a full life.)
Question 3: In the Queen of Darkness (chapter 2, part 6) we learn that “When kindred young are born, a Black Widow makes that mental sidestep into the dreams and visions. Sometimes she sees nothing. Sometimes she names one of the young according to the visions.” In The Queen’s Bargain (example: chapter 13, page 123) we see two Scelties, one named “Morghann” and one named “Khary”. Did they get their names from a Black Widow vision? Are they Morghann’s and Khary’s Selves returned to the living Realm, and/or are they named after them in memory, as Jaenelle Saetien was?
Question 4: Could either Titian or Andulvar actually be their namesakes “Self” returned to the living Realms?
Anne: I don't think they have reincarnation. I've never had that sense. That's why being demon-dead is considered a second chance to do the things a person regretted not doing when they were among the living.
As for the Sceltie Morghann and Khary, since humans didn't name them, you can assume a Black Widow saw a reason to give those pups those particular names.
Question: I know that some authors have Patreon accounts where they might write things for subscribers that:
- the publishing co hasn't asked for but is rambling around in their brain
- deleted or behind the scenes things
- advanced looks at things
- roughs, artwork, recipes that connect to their works, etc
Is this something you've ever considered doing?
Anne: No, i haven't, mostly because all my creative time and energy goes into the book/story I'm writing, and I would have to choose between doing one thing or the other. I prefer to write the story.
Question: Does the body determine Jewel strength (as the dragon scales fell on individuals)? Is Castes determined by the Self inside the body?
Anne: I don't know. I look at a character and say, "Who are you?" They tell me caste and Jewels and I write them down.
Question: As far as Saetan knew, Peyton vanished during the war 50,000 years ago... Is there a chance he survived long enough to have had a child/children?
Could he have used the war as a means to vanish from the realms, and live a quiet life?
Anne: No, they lost all of him. Complete and final death.
Question: Can someone (not a natural Black Widow) come to the hourglass later in life?
Anne: Natural Black Widow or Healer means the girl has an intuitive knowledge of at least some aspects of the Craft used in that caste. Jaenelle Angelline was a child with no official training when she was healing people at Alexandra's estate. But someone who was going to study to be a Black Widow would probably be in their mid to late teens (or equivalent) before they would start training.
Miscellaneous:
Question: Do you have a favorite World? Not to write about, but that YOU would want to visit? Do you want to travel the realms, visit the Landscapes, maybe relax in Tir Alainn? Or maybe visit a Courtyard?
And, while visiting said World, who would you want to be your "tour guide"?
Anne: Well, I'd visit all of them. :) But for a vacation? I'd like to spend time in Riada or be a guest at the Hall. (And you can guess who I'd like the tour guides to be.) I'd like to visit Howling Good Reads in Lakeside, and visit The Jumble (although I would stay with Ineke at the boarding house since she cooks). The Landscapes? Sometimes I think I did cross one of those bridges to find my way to where I am.
Question: Do you have a favorite tea to drink while the Muse speaks to you?
Anne: There are no liquids on the writing desk. Wee bit paranoid, don't ya know. In the winter I drink a variety of mint teas. In the summer, mostly water. The Muse enjoys weeding the garden more than drinking tea. :)
Question: Who are some of your favorite cosplays from your characters? Are there characters that you'd like to see cosplayed more?
Anne: I'm not familiar enough with cosplay to say. I know people have been my characters, and some have been stunning that I've seen at conventions. But my brain doesn't go there.
Question: Have you ever considered merchandising? I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that I would LOVE to be able to purchase any kind of memorabilia!
Anne: I have not considered it. I want to write stories, and I'd have to give up one to do the other. That said, check out redbubble.com and look up Anne Bishop for lots of different things that are mostly for the Blood or the Others.
Question: All of your stories have interesting and distinct gender dynamics at the heart of the worlds you create. Is this something that you have done intentionally?
Anne: When it comes to writing stories, I don't seem to color inside the lines, so I'm always looking at something and seeing what happens if you turn it around. With the Blood, it was sexual mores and double standards and the penalties for things like adultery for men vs. women. That was some of it. So do I consciously throw a stone into the creative well? I guess I do. But what is created out of the ripples in terms of the world, culture, or characters is part of the dance I do with the Muse.
Question: What do you like most about being an author?
Anne: The fun of thinking "what if?" and taking a journey with characters I like (some of them, anyway) to find out what happens. It's creating something out of mist and dreams that feels real to me -- and, hopefully, to you.
Question: Are there some little details stories that you are told that they wish weren't said? i.e. something silly or embarrassing or a secret that they wish hadn't been shared to you that ends up shared with us?
Anne: That's not how the relationship between writer and character works. Story is about revealing the character as that person makes a journey.
Question: What's your favorite dessert?
Anne: depends on the season, but plain milk chocolate is always good.
Question: Of your “bad guys”. Which one was the most difficult to write. Just because of how evil/bad they were and you had to write what they were doing and what they thought?
Anne: Adolfo in the Tir Alainn books was the most difficult, even more than Hekatah and Dorothea. Adolfo scared me, and that took a toll on my health by the time I had finished writing THE HOUSE OF GAIAN.
Question: Have you ever had a fan interaction that made you emotional, or really stuck with you in some way?
Anne: Quite a few of them, but they are not something that can be shared.
Question: Is there a favorite author you would suggest reading?
Anne: I like Patricia Briggs, Louise Penny, C.S. Harris.
Question: How are you managing in the current climate? Are you finding it difficult to be stuck in?
What is the oddest/ strangest thing you've had happen as a result of being a writer / fan interaction?
Anne: It's taken a couple of weeks to get my brain wrapped around the World As It Is Right Now, but I'm trying to get back to my work routine, which means being home. The strangeness comes when I have to go out for anything. Things are changing so fast in terms of protection(s) in place, which is good but does have a Twilight's Zone feel.
Question: Anne Bishop is this kind of experience likely to transfer to writing? Or because the characters tell their own stories do they miss out on these "real world" influences?
Anne: Since everything has the potential to be part of the warp and woof (not sure if that's the correct spelling for those) of a story, I'm sure the current "real world" experiences will find their way into a story somehow. But what it will look like in that story is something I won't know until I'm there.
Question: My question is and please forgive me if it has been already asked: what is your inspiration for the stories/characters?
Anne: I dance with the Muse. That's the best answer I can give. I play "what if...?" and "who would...?" and "what would happen if...?" and "why would...?" games all the time. Sometimes those questions don't go anywhere and sometimes they're the spark that is the start of a characters or a place or a storyline. Dozens of those sparks have to come together in the right way for a story to begin to develop.
Question: For my first question I would like to ask if you could nominate some actors or models that physically resemble the main characters in the trilogy or if you could indicate from what country would they be, as I see the fandom trying to imagine them. My second question is how big is the hall and if the building was inspired by any building in reality. I'm sorry for my bad english and i'm very thankful you chose to share your stories with us.
Anne: My brain doesn't work that way, so I don't try to fit actors and characters together. The Hall is very big, but I can't point to a real building and say it's like that because I didn't start out with anything real.
Question: Do you have any words of wisdom for someone who hopes to have a book published some day?
Anne: Write your story to the best of your ability. write another one. And another. Then look at the first one again and discover what you have learned that will make that story better. Beyond that, first write for the love of writing. write because you would rather do that than any other hobby. Write for the challenge and fun of creating characters and getting them into trouble. Then remember that the creative side of writing is different from the business side of writing, and it can take years of work and effort and honing your craft before you have a story that is ready to be published. So write first for the writing, and then work on learning what you need to do to get published.
Question: How's the garden doing?
Anne: Things are green and growing, giving me a reason to wander outside and observe plants and birds and other critters.
Question: What's your favorite coffee and how do you take it?
Anne: I'll order a mocha as a treat if I'm out somewhere. Otherwise, it's basic coffee with a creamer.
Question: I'd love any of the "children's books" mentioned in any of her series to become real. My son would love them.
Anne: I will never say never, but that world has a lot of possibilities--including some you don't know about yet.
Question: Is there a specific time period or style that you envision the people of the Realms' clothing to be?
Anne: I always think of Daemon wearing Armani, regardless of what anyone else is wearing. The women? Everything from dresses with embroidery and bugle beads to the more ethereal, "witchy" kind of gowns with long sleeves and modest trains of flowy material. No jeans, though, so casual wear was more of a challenge.
Question: During the winter holidays there always seems to be gift sets of series such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Will there ever be a gift set released of The Black Jewels?
Anne: That is something the publisher decides, so I don't know.
Question: Do you have a favorite character and if so who is it?
Anne: Daemon Sadi
Question: What jewel do you think you would have if you made the offering to the darkness?
Anne: Since I have to immerse in the story and the characters, I am everyone and everything, so my brain can't think outside of that.
Question: I’ve notice a theme in some of the series, mainly The Others and Black Jewels ( I reread them most) the theme seems to be most humans are destructive and easily swayed into selfishness, greed, or evil ( my own interpretation of the theme) there seems to be the Others / Kindred who will deal with a select few, trust those that are attached to the select few but the rest of the humans are just prey/ meat and are evil. Was this theme intentional? Did it just work out that way with powerful predators and human interaction, or was there a specific reason this theme has shown up?
Anne: A bumper sticker I saw many years ago said: One earth, one chance. It made an impression on me.
The Others
Question: In The Others Series, the first time that Meg calls Tess for help reading a prophecy, Tess wonders if it is knowledge that causes Meg to call her, or ignorance. Tess concludes that's it's ignorance, and it's this first interaction where "Speak Prophet, and I will listen" is introduced. What is the history between Harvesters and Blood Prophets that causes Tess to make this comment?
Anne: I don't know. I can only tell you the story that is revealed to me.
Question: In Wild Country Jana gets a phone call from “someone” telling her she should go to the Lakeside Courtyard. Is that someone Julian Farrow?
Anne: Yes, it's Julian Farrow.
Question: So one thing I’ve always wondered if the Man that Montgomery kills to save a wolf was the same guy that Meg miss led in the 2 nd prophecy he paid for that got him killed and her punished that let to her escape in Written in Red?
Anne: No, they were different men.
Question: So much time was spent on Abigail Burch in the story, but I never figured out what her storyline really contributed to the over all story. Could you help me understand?
Anne: In some ways, she showed us how the Blackstones worked their cons because she'd played everyone in Prairie Gold. And she was the point where Intuits like Jesse Walker and Intuits like Parlan Blackstone collided, with devastating results.
Question: Are the Harvesters more powerful than all the other terra indigene, and possibly even the Elementals?
Anne: I would say Harvesters could hold their own against any of the shifters, and an Elder if there was only one. But they would have no impact on the Elementals.
Question: Are there plans for exploring other, non US areas in that world in detail? If so, where are some of the areas you'd like to explore?
Also, what are the life spans of the different types of Others?
Anne: When a new gard comes into being, is it a gradual thing, like we may be seeing with Simon or more of a 'hey, here's 50 Others who are switching over'?
Not sure about how much detail there is compared to the novels, but we do see another part of their world in the short story that will hopefully come out in 2021. Life spans? I'm human, so that's not something the Others discuss with me. It would probably be a gradual thing combined with some spontaneous leap along the lines of "hey, these thumb things come in handy!"
Question: Did Skippy ever successfully change? Was it because of a) the chamomile cookies and b) Sam or Meg?
Anne: Right now, I only know what happened in the Courtyard up to the end of Etched in Bone. When the time is right, I'll go back and find out what comes next for them.
Question: I love Lake Silence. Thank you so much for Vicki. I share many of her issues. Do she and Julian become a couple?
Anne: We'll have to wait and see. :)
Question: I remember in The Others, they made mention of disposing the males born from the Blood Prophets since they were considered useless. Thinking in relation to bloodlines though, wouldn't they let some of them grow up in order to breed "purer" lines by re-introducing the recessive genes from the males? Perhaps a Blood Prophet does in fact have a brother somewhere? Also... would a male Blood Prophet also smell of not-prey because the gene is recessive or would they smell like prey since visions didn't swim in their blood?
Anne: Right now, Joshua Painter is the only answer I have. I'm sure they would have kept some males for breeding, but someone like Joshua would have become too dangerous to handle.
Question: When writing The Other series, which character(s) were the funniest and the most difficult to write? - and which character(s) "talked the most" during the writing process?
Anne: Jimmy Montgomery was the most difficult to write. Loved Grandfather Erebus. As for talking the most? The Wolves. The Crows. The female pack. :)
Question: Did you do research into women with aspergers when you wrote Meg? I feel so seen when I read her character
Anne: I'm glad you feel a connection with Meg, but no, I didn't do any research on aspergers to create the blood prophets. I just thought about Meg and who she was and what impact the outside world would have on someone who was sensitive.
Question: How do the shark guard and Others from the sea live? Coastal towns, floating city, or full on underwater communities like little mermaid!?
Anne: The Sharkgard live anywhere they want to. :) Probably islands that are populated by Others or Intuits for those who can change to a two-legged form. Same with the other forms who live in water, unless they're like the Lady of the Lake, who is made of water.
Question: Love the Others books and I read somewhere that the courtyard was partly inspired by the Market Square in Victoria BC, where I live. I think of the Others ever time I walk through it. Are there other locations that have inspired you?
Anne: I think of the Others whenever I visit Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY. If you look at the earlier author photo of me on a bridge overlooking a small lake? That's in Forest Lawn, and that's the lake where Winter and her kin live in the Courtyard. :)
Question: Can Meg and Simon have children?
Anee: No. Even when they look human, the terra indigene are a different species. That means they can’t produce offspring with humans—even humans like Meg.
Question: Why is Mel (the horse) not prey?
Anne: He is prey to almost every predator that looks at a horse and sees a potential meal. However, Mel is a cow pony, which means he’s fast, he’s agile, and he’s smart. Also, he was bred and raised on the Prairie Gold ranch, so he would have had some proximity to the Wolfgard pack that lived in that part of the Elder Hills. Do the Wolfgard smell a little different than regular wolves? Maybe they do to a horse. Whatever the reason, Mel recognized the dogs that were attacking the horses as enemies and Virgil and Kane as allies—or at least not enemies. And Virgil acknowledged Mel’s courage by referring to him as the horse that is not meat. (Note that Virgil calls him that. Mel would still be a snack to an Elder.)
Question: Monty got into trouble for killing a pedophile who preyed on girls. Meg was punished when she lied to one of the Controller’s clients, who was also a sexual predator, about which girl he could take and not get caught. Was the man Monty shot and the man Meg lied to the same person?
Anne: No. The man Monty shot lived in Toland and had the bodies of several girls hidden in his residence. The man who was the Controller’s client was wealthy (had to be to afford the fees for a cut), traveled for business, and preyed on girls in different cities to avoid being caught.
Tir Alainn
Question: Have you ever had a story idea that would follow on your Tir Alainn trilogy?
Anne: That will depend on the Muse and the Bard calling me back there.
Question: What were some of the inspirations for the spiral dance in The House of Gaian?
Anne: I don't remember all the bits and pieces because those things transform in the writing. Part of that was the image of the Wiccan spiral dance, but the rest came from the Muse.
Question: In the Tir Alainn books, those of the fae who were Death's Servants took the spirits of the dead to the gate that would lead them on to the summerland. Toward the very end of The House of Gaian, Ashk stated that she thought Morag's spirit would return one day soon in a daughter of Ari and Neil. Is reincarnation something common to all of the fae or is it something specific to those like Morag who were Death's Servants or Death's Mistress? If it's common to all the fae or even the humans in that world, does that mean that other characters that were lost could return as well, and if so, would they remember anything of who and what they were before? Would Morag for example remember the people she had left behind...Morphia, Ari and Neil, Ashk etc.?
Anne: It's been too long since I was in Tir Alainn to remember exactly, but my memory says that all Fae spirits rest and return. That might be true of humans, too, but that wouldn't be part of their own beliefs. As for what a returned spirit would remember...? That is something to wonder about.

2020.07.06 14:59 rusticgorilla [Lost in the Sauce] Trump prioritizes statues of racist generals over human lives

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
I might do a coronavirus-centric post tomorrow or Wednesday, couldn’t fit it here. Will have to do it this weekend or next week, sorry. Working on an article for FN.
Housekeeping:

Statues over people

Over the past week, we’ve seen the crystallization of Trump’s apparent re-election strategy: protect statues at all costs. During his two public speeches (clip 1 (clip 2), Trump focused on confederate monuments and “cancel culture” while the nation grapples with a record-breaking number of coronavirus cases and a struggling economy.
Trump promised to veto this year’s annual defense bill if an amendment is included that would require the Pentagon to change the names of bases named for Confederate military leaders… Sen. Elizabeth Warren sponsored the amendment that would change the names of 10 bases named after Confederate generals as well as remove Confederate likenesses, symbols, and paraphernalia from defense facilities nationwide within three years.
  • The amendment is unlikely to be removed, however, as it passed the Republican-led Senate Armed Services Committee with bipartisan support. This means that it would require 60 votes on the Senate floor to get rid of it.
  • Warren: “The decision to remove the names of Confederate generals who took up arms against the United States in defense of slavery was a bipartisan decision that came out of the committee, and it’s going to stay in the defense budget. The president can do what he wants, but it stays.”
Trump signed an executive order on June 26 directing the Department of Justice to “prosecute to the fullest extent permitted under Federal law” people who damage federal monuments. He took to Twitter to announce the order: “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!” Damaging federal property can be punished by up to 10 years in prison.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) plans to introduce legislation withholding federal funding for states and cities that don't adequately protect statues and monuments. Trump’s executive order included a provision to do the same, but the White House is not in a position to enforce such a clause.
The Department of Homeland Security announced a new task force to protect "American monuments, memorials and statues." DHS said it was launching rapid deployment teams to federal monuments over the July 4th weekend. "DHS should not be prioritizing the protection of property over the wellbeing of Black and Brown communities,” the ACLU responded.
  • Just want to point out: The federal government apparently has the resources to spare to guard monuments but not to conduct thorough contact tracing and isolation.
During Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech, he announced an executive order establishing a "national garden” for statues of “American heroes” (video). The choice in statues proves that the idea is meant as a divisive wedge issue. Indeed, there is already a “Hall of Fame for Great Americans” in existence in the Bronx.

Appointee controversies

Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to Norway was involved in the creation of a racist campaign flyer in the 1990s and failed to disclose subsequent legal action associated with it. Mark Burkhalter helped create a flier that distorted the features of a black politician in Georgia, darkened his features, gave him a large afro, and prompted a libel suit.
  • Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Robert Menendez is urging the White House to withdraw Burkhalter’s nomination: "During this time of national trauma and reckoning over violence and racist actions against African-Americans, however, it is unthinkable to nominate for a position of public trust an individual who participated in such a despicable, racist scheme," Menendez wrote in a letter.
Trump appointee Michael Pack fired the top officials of the USAGM’s internet freedom group. In less than a decade, the Open Technology Fund has quietly become integral to the world’s repressed communities. Over two billion people in 60 countries rely on tools developed and supported by the fund, like Signal and Tor, to connect to the internet securely and send encrypted messages in authoritarian societies.
The White House directed Defense Department officials to hire former National Security Council staffer Rich Higgins, who was fired for circulating a conspiratorial memo and known for Islamophobic tweets… The move is part of an aggressive push to staff the Pentagon with figures loyal to Trump and with connections to Michael Flynn.
White House is conducting “loyalty test” interviews with political appointees at the Pentagon. The interviews will be conducted by two subordinates of John McEntee, Trump’s former body man who now runs the personnel office: John Troup Hemenway, an undergraduate student, and Jordan Hayley, who graduated from university last month.
House Democrats call for firing of USAID political appointee with history of Islamophobic statements… Religious freedom adviser Mark Kevin Lloyd shared a Facebook post calling Islam “a barbaric cult” and accused Obama of being connected with the Muslim Brotherhood. Reps. Joaquin Castro and Ilhan Omar: “He does not represent the values of our country, and he should not be in a position to betray our nation’s constitutional promise of religious freedom.”
A second USAID Trump appointee is under fire for hate-filled rhetoric, including anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ comments. Merritt Corrigan, the recently appointed deputy White House liaison at USAID, said “women shouldn’t be in office” and urged followers to “speak out now about the transsexual agenda before it becomes normalized."

Court cases

Coming up this morning: More Supreme Court opinions to be released at 10 am (ET). There are eight cases that have yet to be ruled on, including those involving Trump’s finances.
The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to hear arguments this fall about Mueller’s grand jury evidence, postponing the House Judiciary Committee’s potential access to the material until after the election. SCOTUS could have declined the hear the case, preserving the lower court ruling granting the committee access.
Last week, SCOTUS struck down a Louisiana law that required abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. The ruling should be seen only as a momentary win, as Chief Justice Roberts didn’t rule on the merits of a constitutionally protected right to abortion—rather he deferred to the power of the court itself, leaving the door open for future challenges.
  • The Supreme Court also gave Indiana a second chance to revive two restrictive abortion laws - one imposing an ultrasound requirement and the other expanding parental notification when minors seek abortions - by throwing out a lower court's rulings to block them.
  • Related: Missouri Supreme Court denies attempt to defund Planned Parenthood
  • More on Roberts: “[H]e is moving the ball steadily down the constitutional field, toward the conservative end zone. Of the dozen 5-to-4 cases decided by the Supreme Court this term, Roberts is the only justice to have been in the majority each time. He sided with the liberals just twice.”
The Supreme Court ruled that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is constitutionally valid but the director can be removed by the president at will. The outcome is a mixed bag, but Elizabeth Warren - creator of the agency - highlighted the fact that the conservative court ruled “the CFPB is here to stay.” Furthermore, if Biden wins in November, the decision allows him to fire Trump’s director before her term would have ended.
The Supreme Court declined to take up the case of federal death row prisoners who had challenged the government’s lethal injection protocol, paving the way for the Trump administration to carry out the first executions at the federal level in nearly two decades.
The Supreme Court ruled that states must allow religious schools to participate in programs that provide scholarships to students attending private schools, a decision that opened the door to more public funding of religious education.
The upshot: Taxpayers in most of the country will soon start funding overtly religious education—including the indoctrination of children into a faith that might clash with their own conscience. For example, multiple schools that participate in Montana’s scholarship program inculcate students with a virulent anti-LGBTQ ideology that compares homosexuality to bestiality and incest…
A New York appellate court lifted the temporary restraining order against Simon & Schuster, allowing the publisher to continue printing and distributing Mary Trump’s book. The next hearing regarding the restraining order against Mary herself is scheduled for this Friday.
UPDATE: "Due to high demand and extraordinary interest in this book, Too Much and Never Enough by Mary L. Trump will now be published on July 14, 2020," Simon & Schuster says. The previous publishing date was July 28.
In court filings, Mary Trump argues that the confidentiality agreement she signed 19 years ago was an unenforceable fraud. Her lawyers state that when she signed the NDA, she believed the asset amounts in it were accurate but learned they were bogus from a New York Times expose. Essentially, Mary says the president and his siblings of engaging in systematic fraud by devaluing assets.
“The Times found that the Trump family had engineered ‘friendly’ appraisals for Beach Haven and Shore Haven Apartments—two of the largest ‘crown jewels’ of Fred Trump’s empire—that were significantly and deliberately undervalued to avoid a variety of tax payments,” the memo stated. “Those undervalued appraisals, part of the Trump tax avoidance scheme, were relied upon in the Settlement Agreement—which Ms. Trump has testified she would not have signed if she had known about the fraudulent appraisals.”

Trump campaign and properties

Health secretary Alex Azar focuses trips on swing states needed by Trump… Azar’s travel priorities appear to be related to politics, not the states fighting the worst outbreaks, according to Obama-era officials.
Last year, the Republican National Convention began cutting checks to a former producer of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice who was accused of having, as one contestant put it, “all the dirt” on Donald Trump. The RNC’s disbursements to Labella’s firm appear to be the first payments ever made by a federal political committee to either Labella personally or his company. But a RNC spokesperson described his role for the convention as that of a standard event producer.
Trump is planning on holding a $580,600-per-couple campaign fundraiser in Broward County this week. Last month, Trump resumed in-person fundraising with two events, including a June 11 gathering in Dallas that cost $580,600 per couple. The campaign said it raised more than $10 million through that event.
A t-shirt for sale on Trump’s official campaign website displays an “america First” logo with a striking similarity to the Nazis' Iron Eagle symbol (comparison). A little over two weeks ago, Facebook removed numerous Trump campaign posts and ads featuring an upside down red triangle symbol once used by Nazis to identify political opponents.
  • Let’s not forget that a little over a week ago, Trump retweeted a video that included a Trump supporter shouting “white power.” The president commented that his supporters in the video are “great people.” Staffers tried for three hours to reach Trump to get permission to delete the tweet, but Trump was on the golf course.
Speaking of Trump and golfing, this weekend Trump spent his 365th day as president on one of his own properties. In fact, on the day the U.S. set a daily global record for the coronavirus pandemic - surpassing 55,000 new cases - Trump was golfing.
Further reading: “Pence donors, allies helped finance vice president's legal defense fund for Mueller probe” and “The owner ‘The Hill’ helped secure an unpaid White House position for his wife — a fact the publication did not disclose to readers.”

Voting rights

The Supreme Court blocked a trial judge’s order that would have made it easier for voters in three Alabama counties to use absentee ballots in this month’s primary runoff election. State officials had asked the court to block a lower court’s order that eased photo ID and witness requirements for absentee voting during the pandemic.
The Supreme Court declined to fast-track a bid by Texas Democrats to decide whether all Texas voters can vote by mail during the coronavirus pandemic… Texas law allows voters to mail in their ballots only if they are 65 or older, confined in jail, will be out of the county during the election period, or cite a disability or illness.
A federal appeals court halted the voting registration of thousands of Florida felons who cannot pay fines or fees, just weeks after a lower court threw out the state law mandating payment of all legal financial obligations before voting. The 11th Circuit decision granted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ request to suspend voter registration until the full court hears the case.
  • Reminder: Late last year, the Senate confirmed Judge Barbara Lagoa to the 11th Circuit, flipping the court to majority GOP appointees.
A federal appeals court in Wisconsin has reaffirmed voting restrictions favored by Republicans, limiting early voting to 2 weeks before an election and barring voters from receiving ballots via email or fax.
In some good news, the Atlanta Hawks is going to turn its arena into the largest polling site in state history. Hundreds of Hawks employees and arena staff will be trained as election workers at the 700,000-square-foot venue, which hosts more than 16,000 spectators for basketball games and 21,000 for concerts. The team says parking will be free for voters and more than 1,500 spaces will be made available.

Immigration

ICE unlawfully jails unaccompanied migrant children once they turn 18, judge rules… Many of ICE’s largest field offices “nearly automatically” send minors to adult jails, even when in extreme cases their parents in the United States or other sponsors would take them, the judge wrote.
The week before last, a federal judge ordered the release of children held with their parents in U.S. immigration jails and denounced the Trump administration’s prolonged detention of families during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Prior to the ruling, it was reported that eleven immigrants held inside a detention facility for families in Texas have tested positive for COVID-19
  • Further reading: ICE Asked Parents to Choose Between Family Separation and Prolonged Detention—During a Pandemic
A government watchdog agency responsible for overseeing the conditions that federal agencies hold immigrants in said it will not be visiting facilities because of the coronavirus, which observers worry will diminish independent inspections.
'Suddenly they started gassing us': Cuban migrants tell of shocking attack at Ice prison… Refugees say protest against risk of Covid-19 was violently suppressed at New Mexico facility run by private firm CoreCivic.
A federal judge overturned a Trump border rule requiring immigrants to first claim asylum in another country… Trump-appointee Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Washington, D.C. ruled that the administration’s rule violated the Immigration and Nationality Act.
The Trump administration is preparing broad new immigration restrictions that would deny humanitarian refuge to anyone from a country with a disease outbreak, deeming those asylum seekers to be a danger to public safety.
  • Meanwhile, travelers from the U.S. are banned from entering countries in Europe, must quarantine when visiting England, and will have to pass through health checkpoints to visit Sonora (the Mexican state that borders Arizona).
The US agency that oversees and administers key facets of the immigration system, including the processing of citizenship, green cards, and asylum applications is about to come to a near halt. If Congress does not provide US Citizenship and Immigration Services with emergency funding before Aug. 3, the employees, who make up more than 60% of all staffers, will be furloughed.
Border wall built by Trump’s hand-picked contractor is in danger of falling into the Rio Grande… Trump supporters funded the private border wall on the banks of the Rio Grande, helping the builder secure $1.7 billion in federal contracts. Last December, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., called for the Pentagon’s inspector general to review Fisher’s first $400 million fence contract, awarded in December over concerns of “inappropriate influence.” The audit is ongoing.
Fun fact: All but 3 of the 216 miles of border wall constructed by the Trump administration are essentially much larger replacements of existing, dilapidated fences or vehicle barriers

Environment

  • Pro-pipeline letters by key legislators, including North Dakota’s governor, were actually ghostwritten by a fossil fuel company
  • The Fed Is Bailing Out Polluters While Cities Struggle: Fossil fuel interests have readier access to stimulus money than many local governments.
  • Trump's trade war hurt Maine's lobster industry. He falsely blames Obama: The president has moved to bail out the state's all-important seafood industry. But his policies caused the problem.
    • White House directs Agriculture Department to extend farmer bailout money to lobster industry
  • Trump’s EPA balks at a chance to save black lives: Soot sickens and kills people of color disproportionately. The EPA has decided to not tighten standards that would protect them and others.
  • A Democratic U.S. senator says he has written to Attorney General William Barr outlining his concerns about potential “political interference” by the Trump administration in an investigation of a private espionage firm that targeted environmental groups in the United States.
  • The Trump administration proposed to open more than two-thirds of the nation’s largest piece of public land to oil and gas drilling, removing wildlife protections for the Alaskan tract that have been in place for more than four decades.
  • Trump Has Dismantled More Monuments Than Any Protest: Trump has done the most damage to national monuments, dismantling or desecrating four federally protected land and water sites with significant cultural, archeological and natural resources.

Other

These stories didn’t fit in a previous category, but I think it’s important to include…
A new Trump administration proposal would let government-funded, single-sex homeless shelters keep transgender people out for religious reasons, and advocates worry that could subject them to more violence than they already face.
In the past, Secretary Carson has called transgender women “big, hairy men” intruding on women’s shelters and referred to “Biblical principles” to justify misgendering transgender women.
President Trump has taken aim at an Obama-era program intended to eliminate racial housing disparities in the suburbs, a move proponents of the policy see as an attempt to shore up his sagging support among white suburban voters by stoking racial division.
The Trump administration is in discussions to end a decades-old practice of informally notifying Congress of major arms sales to foreign countries… Administration officials say they are tired of regular efforts by Capitol Hill to review arms exports to Saudi Arabia and other nations.
The White House asked a Republican senator to block a bill that punishes China over its encroachments in Hong Kong. That senator, Kevin Cramer, obliged, blocking unanimous passage of the bill last week — even though he’s a co-sponsor of it.

2020.05.25 03:48 SACRED-GEOMETRY Timeline of the Long Island Serial Killer case

This is a timeline I posted on /LISKiller. I thought I would share it here in light of recent updates in the case.
Cases with an asterisk* next to them are not officially linked to the Long Island Serial Killer. Although they are not conclusively linked I believe they should be included in the discussion. Victim names are italicized as there's dozens of names to keep track of.
Case summary:
  • The Long Island serial killer (LISK) is an unidentified serial killer who is believed to have murdered 10 to 16 people on Long Island, New York. Some people suspect multiple killers were operating in the same area. Most of the bodies were discovered during a search for Shannan Gilbert, who disappeared after seeing a client in May 2010. Her body was found in 2011. Police were recently ordered to release the audio recording of her 23 minute phone call to police the night we she went missing. This week detectives identified one of the victims using genetic genealogy.
You may find it helpful to use a map while reading:
February 1, 1982*
  • Tina Foglia (19) was last seen in the early morning hours of February 1, 1982 at a rock music venue in West Islip. Her dismembered body was discovered by Department of Transportation workers on February 3 along the shoulder of the Southern State Parkway. Her remains were placed in three separate plastic garbage bags, and were found a few miles north of the Robert Moses Causeway, which leads to Gilgo Beach and Oak Beach. A diamond ring that Foglia was known to wear was missing.
  • The DNA of an unknown male was found on the garbage bags. Police have not ruled out the possibility that Tina Foglia was an early victim of the Long Island Serial Killer.1
  • Tina Foglia:
April 20, 1996
  • Two female legs, wrapped in a plastic bag, are discovered on Fire Island west of Davis Park Beach.
  • The victim's skull would later be found on April 11, 2011 west of Tobay Beach in Nassau County and linked by DNA.1, 2
  • "Jane Doe No. 7 / Fire Island Jane Doe":
June 28, 1997
  • The dismembered torso of an unidentified young African-American female was found in Hempstead Lake State Park, New York. The torso was found in a green plastic container which was dumped next to a road. Both arms, head, and legs below the knee were severed and have not been located. The victim had a tattoo of a heart-shaped peach with a bite out of it on her left breast.1
  • On April 11, 2011, police in Nassau County discovered dismembered skeletal human remains inside a plastic bag near Jones Beach State Park, nicknamed "Jane Doe No. 3". DNA analysis identified this victim as the mother of "Baby Doe."2 She was found wearing gold jewelry similar to that of "Baby Doe."3
  • In December 2016, Peaches and Jane Doe No. 3 were positively identified as being the same person.4
  • "Jane Doe No. 3 / Peaches":
November 19, 2000
  • The body of a woman is discovered by hikers in the Long Island Pine Barrens in Manorville, off of Halsey Manor Road. She was a white woman in her 30s with brown hair. She had been dead for several weeks before her nude, headless body was found, cut into pieces and stuffed in plastic bags.
  • April 4, 2011, her head, hands and right foot were found in a plastic bag in the vicinity of Ocean Parkway on Gilgo Beach.1
  • On May 22, 2020 police in Long Island announced they had positively identified the “Manorville Jane Doe” and will be releasing her identity.2
  • "Jane Doe No. 6 / Manorville Jane Doe":
November 23, 2000*
  • Hunters found the body of a white or Hispanic man in his 20s with black hair in the woods off the eastbound side of the Long Island Expressway (LIE) near Exit 68 in North Shirley. He was wearing light blue-and-white striped GAP boxer shorts. He had "multiple traumatic injuries including crushed larynx" implying he was strangled.
July 26, 2003
  • A naked and dismembered torso, missing its head and hands, was discovered 45 miles east of Gilgo Beach in Manorville, New York.1 The victim was identified as Jessica Taylor (20), an escort from Washington, D.C. She was last seen days earlier at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.2 Taylor's torso was found atop a pile of scrap wood at the end of a paved access road off of Halsey Manor Road, just north of where it crosses the LIE. Plastic sheeting was found underneath the torso, and a tattoo on her body had been mutilated with a sharp instrument. Medical examiners determined the tattoo was a red heart with an angel wing that said, ‘‘Remy’s angel”.
  • On May 9, 2011, it was reported that the remains of a skull, a pair of hands, and a forearm found on March 29 at Gilgo were matched to Jessica Taylor.3
November 10, 2003*
  • A body was found south of the Long Island Expressway in Manorville. Hunters discovered the body in a wooded area several hundred yards from the expressway. Autopsy results were inconclusive (per the newspaper articles linked blow). The victim was Caucasian, 35 to 50 years old, about 5-foot-6 and had died up to four months earlier.1, 2
  • There is speculation that the body could have been dumped at the same time as Jessica Taylor's body.
  • There is not much information about this, aside from a few newspaper articles. Unable to find pages for this victim at DoeNetwork and NamUs. There was an IdentifyUs page that no longer works. If you find any information please contact me.
    • Newspaper articles: 1, 2
March 3, 2007*
  • A suitcase containing the dismembered torso of an unidentified Hispanic or light-skinned African-American female washed up on a beach at Harbor Island Park, in the town of Mamaroneck. One of her dismembered legs washed up at Cold Spring Harbor on March 21, 2007, and her other leg washed up at Oyster Bay in the village of Cove Neck the following day. The victim was determined to have been stabbed to death.1
  • The victim had a tattoo of two cherries on her left breast, which was similar in appearance to the tattoo found on Peaches. Never identified, the victim is referred to as "Cherries" by investigators. "Cherries" was dismembered in a fashion similar to three other victims: Jessica Taylor, "Peaches", and "Jane Doe No. 6", meaning she may be linked to the other official victims.
  • "Cherries":
July 9, 2007
  • Maureen Brainard-Barnes (25) is last seen in her room at the Super 8 Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Her last known call that night is to her sister, Missy, during which she says she is at Penn Station.
  • Shortly after her disappearance, a friend of Maureen's, Sara Karnes, received a call from a man on an unfamiliar number. The man claimed that he had just seen Maureen and that she was alive and staying at a “whorehouse in Queens”. He refused to identify himself and could not tell Karnes the location of the house. He told Karnes he would call back and give her the address, but he never called again. Karnes said that the man had no discernible New York or Boston accent.1
  • Her body was found in December 2010 located very close to three other victims.2, 3
June 27, 2008*
  • The dismembered remains of Tanya Rush (39) were found in Bellmore on a grassy shoulder of the Southern State Parkway, crammed into a small dark suitcase.1
    • Tanya Rush Websleuths threads: 1, 2
July 12, 2009
  • Melissa Barthelemy (24) was last seen outside her apartment on Underhill Avenue in the Bronx. At some point, the security camera of her local bank recorded her depositing $1,000 into her account, believed to be money she'd received from a date she’d had earlier that night. She withdrew $100 before heading out the door. Her boyfriend/pimp, John "Blaze" Terry, would later say that he knew Melissa had lined up another $1,000 date the next night, somewhere on Long Island. She went by the working name "Chloe."1
  • Shortly afterwards, her sister, Amanda, received 6-7 phone calls from a man using Melissa's cell phone and claiming to be her killer.2. The first calls were on July 16, July 19, and July 23 and the final call was on August 26. The calls were placed from crowded locations in New York City, including Madison Square Garden and Times Square. In one instance, police determined that Barthelemy’s phone had been turned on near Massapequa, Long Island, and that someone had gained access to her voice mail.3
  • Her body was discovered December 11, 2010 beside Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.4
May 1, 2010*
  • Shannan Maria Gilbert (23) was a New Jersey woman who may have been a victim of the Long Island serial killer. Gilbert had been working as an escort. She left for a client's house (Brewer) in Oak Beach after midnight on May 1, 2010. At 4:51 in the morning, 911 dispatchers received a panicked phone call from Gilbert who can be heard saying that there was someone "after her" and that "they" were trying to kill her. She was last seen a short time later banging on the front door of a nearby Oak Beach residence and screaming for help before running off into the night. Neighbors Gus Coletti and Barbara Brennan are among the last to see her.1
  • On December 13, 2011, Gilbert's remains are found in a marsh, half a mile from where she was last seen.2 In May 2012, the Suffolk County medical examiners ruled that Gilbert accidentally drowned after entering the marsh. They believe that she was in a drug induced panic, and have concluded that her cause of death was "undetermined." Her family believes she was murdered.3
May 3, 2010*
  • Two days after Shannan Gilbert's disappearance, Dr. Peter Hackett, an Oak Beach resident and neighbor of Brewer, called Gilbert's mother, Mari Gilbert. He claimed he was taking care of Gilbert, and that he "ran a home for wayward girls." Three days later, he called the mother again, denying that he had any contact with her daughter.
    • Investigators later confirmed through phone records that Hackett called Mari twice following the disappearance. Telephone records show that calls were placed from Dr. Hackett's cellphone on May 3, 2010 and from his home phone on May 6 to Mari Gilbert's cellphone, and on the latter date from Dr. Hackett's home phone to Shannan's sister Sheree's cellphone.
  • The marshy area where Gilbert's remains were found was also noted as near Hackett's backyard. Gilbert's family filed a wrongful death suit against Hackett in November 2012, claiming that he took Gilbert into his home that morning and administered drugs to her, facilitating her death. Later police revealed that Hackett had a history of inserting himself into, or exaggerating his role in, certain major events. Police also noted that Hackett's wife and two children were home on the night of Gilbert's disappearance. Police later ruled out Hackett as a suspect in the deaths of Gilbert and the LISK victims.1
June 5, 2010
  • Megan Waterman (22) was last seen on June 5, 2010 heading toward a nearby convenience store on foot after leaving the Hauppauge Holiday Inn Express.
  • Her body is discovered on December 13, 2010, along with the bodies of Maureen Brainard-Barnes and Amber Lynn Costello. 1
  • On April 16, 2011, police seized the laptop of Waterman's boyfriend/pimp, Akeem Cruz, to search for records of clients that could lead them to the killer.2 In April, 2012, Cruz pled guilty to federal charges of transporting women across state lines to meet clients for sex.3 In 2013 he was sentenced to three years in prison.4
September 2, 2010
  • Amber Lynn Costello (27) leaves her home in North Babylon to meet a client, never to be seen alive again.
  • Her body is discovered on December 13, 2010, along with the bodies of Maureen Brainard-Barnes and Megan Waterman. 1
December 11, 2010
  • A Suffolk County Police canine unit investigating a missing persons case regarding Shannan Gilbert discover human skeletal remains at Gilgo Beach, three miles west of Robert Moses bridge, at 2:45 p.m. Police discover a full skeleton, wrapped in burlap, in the bramble beside Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach, three miles from Oak Beach.1 The remains are later identified as Melissa Barthelemy (24).
December 13, 2010
  • Near where Melissa Barthelemy (24) was found, police find three more sets of remains, also skeletons wrapped in burlap, later identified as Megan Waterman (22), Maureen Brainard-Barnes (25), and Amber Lynn Costello (27). The bodies are found in the same location, within 500 feet of each of other.1
December 15, 2010
  • The FBI offers up its forensic and investigative services in the case. Police seize a white SUV from the client's Oak Beach residence as part of the investigation.1
December 16, 2010
  • Suffolk County Medical Examiner reports the remains are all female victims and that Gilbert is not one of the four female bodies discovered. The ME's office holds a press event to explain forensic investigation approach.
December 17, 2010
  • Police hold a press conference to provide an update of the investigation, stating they had completed a comprehensive search of the beach area in both Nassau and Suffolk along Ocean Parkway.
January 19, 2011
  • Police identify one victim as Megan Waterman (22), a woman from Maine reported missing in June 2010 from Hauppauge, NY. Remaining three victim identities still unknown.
January 24-25?, 2011
  • Police reveal identities of three remaining victims, and Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota declares the victims are the work of a serial killer.1 He also reveals all four worked as escorts using Craigslist ads. Police say the women were killed at different times, possibly a year apart in one case, and disposed of at different times.
  • Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer says beach search would resume once weather conditions improve in spring.
March 29, 2011
  • Police search teams return to Gilgo Beach to resume search for Shannan Gilbert.
March 30 2011
  • Police confirm discovery of more possible human remains at a site east of the original search location. Police find a skull, hands, and forearm, later verified to be additional remains of Jessica Taylor, the woman whose torso was found in Manorville in 2003. Other human remains are also found along Ocean Parkway, three quarters of a mile east of where the first four bodies were discovered.
March 31, 2011
  • Police rule out that the fifth set of remains discovered a mile east of the first four sets are not those of Shannan Gilbert (24), the missing New Jersey woman.
April 4, 2011
  • Police find three more sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway between Oak Beach and Gilgo Beach, bringing the body count to eight. An unidentified Asian male dressed in women’s clothing; the skull, hands, and foot of the first Manorville Jane Doe (discovered in 2000); and an unidentified girl between sixteen and thirty-two months old described as "Baby Doe".
  • Police later released a sketch of the Asian male. The cause of death was blunt-force trauma.1 He likely been working as an escort and was wearing women's clothing at the time of his death. He was between 17 and 23 years of age, 5' 6" in height, and missing four teeth. He had been dead for between 5 and 10 years. He had some kind of musculoskeletal disorder which would have affected his gait.2
  • DNA analysis identified Baby Doe to be the child of "Jane Doe No. 3 / Peaches."3
April 5, 2011
  • Police say Shannan Gilbert (24), the woman last seen in Oak Beach on May 1, 2010 is not one of the three bodies discovered on April 4.
April 11, 2011

2020.05.05 12:45 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Dial M For Murder Hornets by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (05/04/20)

"I believe I am treated worse." - Donald Trump (not assassinated), about Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)

A Grimm Outlook

The Trump administration privately projects that daily coronavirus deaths will nearly double over the next few weeks, even as President Trump continues to pressure states to relax their public-health restrictions. The White House said the data is just from a bunch of scientists and hasn’t been vetted by the likes of Mike “I should have worn a mask” Pence, which it seems to think will convince you to trust that data...less?
You’ll be floored to learn that Trump continues to dodge oversight, and retaliate against officials who deliver information he doesn’t like.
The U.S. recorded its highest daily death toll just as several states began reopening on Friday, and the CDC’s new projections show that the Americans are about to be dumped right back into the same danger we faced before the lockdown. By staying home, you bought the federal government several weeks to ramp up testing, distribute PPE, and coordinate a national strategy for a safe reopening. The Trump administration wasted that time, and now hopes you’ll just get used to the appalling consequences.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Part two of Hall of Shame’s two part episode on NBA player Ron Artest (aka Metta World Peace) is out today! In part one, they dive into the backstory—his life, his promising career, everything up until the infamous brawl, known as “The Malice at the Palace”—the biggest in sports history. In part two, they look at what came after—the rest of his career, his name change, and everything that follows.

Under The Radar

The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a mental-health crisis that the U.S. is ill-equipped to handle. Nearly half of Americans report that the coronavirus crisis has harmed their mental health, and a federal emergency hotline for people in emotional distress saw a 1000 percent increase in texts over the same time last year. Frontline workers are at particularly high risk for anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Experts say that in the same way the U.S. took drastic steps to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients, it needs to prepare for the coming mental-health crisis by providing widespread mental-health screenings, better access to therapists through telehealth, and a much more significant allocation of federal relief funds.

What Else?

Joe Biden denied Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation in a Friday appearance on Morning Joe, and called for the release of any potential records related to the claim, which he said would be housed at the National Archives. Senate officials said today that they can’t legally release those documents.
Kim Jong-un reappeared after a mysterious three-week absence at the opening of a fertilizer plant, as one does.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced a ban on 1,500 kinds of assault weapons in the wake of the country’s deadliest mass shooting in April.
An Amazon vice president has resigned over the firing of employees who protested working conditions in the company’s warehouses. Tim Bray called Amazon “chickenshit” for firing activists, which he said was “designed to create a climate of fear.”
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has announced the formation of a seven-state consortium to buy PPE in states’ latest move to reinvent the federal government, because the one we have won’t do its job.
A Trump appointee to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, who allegedly manipulated research that led to the weakening of the bureau’s payday lending rule, previously ran a predatory car dealership.
J. Crew has become the first national retailer to file for bankruptcy as a result of pandemic conditions, and several other major retailers are likely to do the same. Unbutton your timeless linen button-down to half-mast.
Carnival Cruise Line plans to get back to cruisin’ starting on August 1, presumably as some kind of secret MIT-funded social experiment.
The 2020 Pulitzer Prize winners have been announced. Coleson Whitehead is now just the fourth novelist in history to win a second Pulitzer, and This American Life won the first-ever “Audio Reporting” prize.
A Japanese aquarium has asked the public to FaceTime its very shy eels. We all like to speculate about what we would have done at pivotal moments in history, but here you are. History is happening. Will you stand idly by? Or will you answer the call, and FaceTime some eels?

Be Smarter

Murder hornets have arrived in the U.S., because we have had it too easy for too long around here. Asian giant hornets, or “murder hornets” as they are adorably known, can wipe out a honeybee hive in a matter of hours with their mandibles, and have a horrifying stinger–long enough to stab through a bee suit—and potent venom that they use to attack larger targets. In Japan, the hornets kill up to 50 people per year. Now they’re in the U.S. for the first time, and could decimate the country’s bee population if they aren’t eradicated quickly. The first sightings were in Washington state, where scientists are setting traps in a frantic hunt to eliminate them. One researcher who was stung by a murder hornet across the border in Canada described it as “like having red-hot thumbtacks being driven into my flesh,” so, you know, another compelling reason to stay inside in the event you’ve grown a bit stir crazy.

2020.04.12 22:57 CuteBananaMuffin Hidden Proofs Of A Giant Race

As you read this series of extracts, try to visualize the proverbial series of contemporary evolution... something is amiss...
  1. Large bones in stone graves in Williamson County and White County, Tennessee. Discovered in the early 1800s, the average stature of these giants was 7 feet tall.
  2. Giant skeletons found in the mid-1800s in New York state near Rutland and Rodman.
  3. In 1833, soldiers digging at Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a male skeleton 12 feet tall. The skeleton was surrounded by caved shells, stone axes, other artifacts. The skeleton had double rows of upper and lower teeth. Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried because the local Indians became upset about the remains.
  4. A giant skull and vertebrae found in Wisconsin and Kansas City.
  5. A giant found off the California Coast on Santa Rosa Island in the 1800s was distinguished by its double rows of teeth.
  6. A 9-foot, 8-inch skeleton was excavated from a mount near Brewersville, Indiana, in 1879.
  7. Skeletons of "enormous dimensions" were found in mounds near Zanesville, Ohio, and Warren, Minnesota, in the 1880s.
  8. In Clearwater Minnesota, the skeletons of seven giants were found in mounds. These had receding foreheads and complete double dentition.
  9. At LeCrescent, Minnesota, mounds were found to contain giant bones. Five miles north near Dresbach, the bones of people over 8 feet tall were found.
  10. In 1888 seven skeletons ranging from seven to 8 feet tall were discovered.
  11. Near Toledo, Ohio, 20 skeletons were discovered with jaws and teeth "twice as large as those of present day people." The account also noted that odd hieroglyphics were found with the bodies.
  12. Miners in Lovelock Cave, California, discovered a very tall, red-haired mummy In 1911
  13. This mummy eventually went to a fraternal lodge where it was used for "initiation purposes."
  14. In 1931, skeletons from 8 1-2 to 10 feet long were found in the Humbolt lake bed in California.
  15. In 1932, Ellis Wright found human tracks in the gypsum rock at White Sands, New Mexico. His discovery was later backed up by Fred Arthur, Supervisor of the Lincoln National Park and others who reported that each footprint was 22 inches long and from 8 to 10 inches wide. They were certain the prints were human in origin due to the outline of the perfect prints coupled with a readily apparent instep.
  16. During World War II, author Ivan T. Sanderson tells of how his crew was bulldozing through sedimentary rock when it stumbled upon what appeared to be a graveyard. In it were crania that measured from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown nearly three times as large as an adult human skull. Had the creatures to whom these skulls belonged been properly proportioned, they undoubtedly would have been at least 12 feet tall or taller.
  17. In 1947 a local newspaper reported the discovery of nine-foot-tall skeletons by amateur archeologists working in Death Valley.
  18. The archeologists involved also claimed to have found what appeared to be the bones of tigers and dinosaurs with the human remains.
  19. The Catalina Islands, off California, are the home of dwarf mammoth bones that were once roasted in ancient fire pits. These were roasted and eaten by human-like creatures who were giants with double rows of teeth.
  20. One of the latest accounts of a race of giants that occupied Europe comes from the middle ages and involves a surprising figure: Saint Christopher. While modern stories of St. Christopher simply make him out as an ordinary man, or perhaps a somewhat homely man, those who actually saw him had a different story. According to his peers, he was a giant, belonging to a tribe of dog-headed, cannibalistic giants. Jacques de Voragine in The Golden Legend wrote of St. Christopher:"He was of gigantic stature, had a terrifying mien, was twelve coudees tall.”
  21. A coudee is an antique measurement equal to or larger than the English linear measurement of a foot. According to this ancient account, St. Christopher stood from 12 to 18 feet tall (a fact that has become hidden in or even erased from church history).
  22. While Western icons don't picture St. Christopher as contemporary accounts described him, those of the Eastern churches do. Often the suggestion is seen in historic accounts that St. Christopher was the product of a tryst between a human being and an Anubis (a demon-like creature based on the Greek Anoubis, which came from the Egyptians jackal-headed god who was believed to lead the dead to judgment)

  1. In other words, according to the contemporary accounts of his day, St. Christopher was the product of a spiritual being who mated with a human woman. And once again the result of this union was a creature that matches the descriptions of the Nephilim. GENESIS 6:4
There were GIANTS in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the SONS OF GOD (Fallen Angels) came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
1.One of the many races of giants.

...AND THEY BUILT STONEHENGE There is ample reasons to believe that the monoliths in Salisbury, England, were not built by either the Druids or normal human beings. When one consider the megaliths proportions, tonnage, and lack of resources in terms of both nature and human; and the lack of technology, the possibility that I am suggesting is not so far-fetched as it may seem. 1. Not a lot is known about the people who would become known as the Celts. It is known that they migrated across Asia Minor, through northern Europe and into what have become the Celtic countries of Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Most accounts of them include references to the giants that were often found among them. The ancient Greek historian Pausanias called them "the world's tallest people."
  1. "Modern historians now believe that, in fact, the giants among the Celts were a ruling class that held control over the indigenous population that formed the majority of the Celtic tribes.
  2. As these 60-some tribes that comprised the Cimbri or Cimmerian peoples traveled across Europe, migrating and taking over areas and later being driven Eastward by other cultures, the name of the people changed. While they were in Asia Minor, they were known as the Gomarian Sacae; this was shortened and modified to become Celtae (meaning "potent and valiant men" similar to the "mighty men" on the Genesis 6 passage). The Greeks called them Galatai a corruption of Celtae; the Romans further changed this name to become Gauls.
  3. Although the Romans 'would eventually devise methods of defeating these giant warriors, attacking long legs that couldn't be guarded by the massive shields these creatures carried, the blue-eyed, blond giants inspired terror among those facing them in battle for the first time.
The travels of the giants through the German region also most likely inspired the Teutonic legends of the Aryan race of superhumans (with the early name of "Cimmerian" having an obvious resemblance that is probably more than happenstance to Aryan). The Nazi ideal "superman" was a blue-eyed, blond giant; this is the exact historic description of the Celtae. DeLoach has also made a good argument that the giants ruling the Celtae may very well have been descendants of the Anakim, the giants the Israelites found in the Promised Land. His argument is based on the Roman poet Virgil's account of the Gauls which describes them:
“Golden is their hair and golden their garb. They are resplendent in their striped cloaks,and their milk-white necks are circled with gold.”
5.These distinctive gold necklaces have also been discovered in numerous archeological finds, bolstering Virgil's observations.
  1. This tight gold band around the necks of theCeltae is what ties them to the biblical accounts of the Nephilim. Remembering that the Anakim were one of the tribes that were listed as being giants in the Bible, the clue that links the Celtae to the Nephilim is the Hebrew word which is translated as "Anakim" in English: The actual word is Anaqiy, meaning "a descendent of Anak."
  2. Now the word translated as "Anak" in the English version of the Bible is Anaq and was employed as another term for"Canaanite."
  3. As noted earlier, this suggests that the culture that ruled much of the Promised Land when the Israelites invaded it was comprised of two classes with the Anakim acting as a ruling elite within a larger human population.
But there's more. Hebrew names are often based on common words, giving the names special meanings that relate it back to characteristics of the individual or thing being named. The word, Anaq, which was employed to name the Anak, used in other contexts means "a necklace so tight as to appear to be strangling." Use of this word suggests that the most noticeable feature of the descendants of Anak was a tight chain about the neck.
That same feature was the distinguishing characteristic that Virgil chose to remark on when describing the Gauls.
This leads to an important possibility. The Anakim, or giants that adopted their practices, were pushed out of Canaan by the Israelites, going northward and eventually traveling westward over Europe and, with the passage of several millennia, finally settled in the Celtic nations.
Their Religious Practices
  1. If the Anakim and the giants among the Celtae were one and the same people, then it's possible to gain an insight into the religious practices of the Nephilim. While the Bible doesn't reveal much about the religious practices of the Anakim, it does hint at human and infant sacrifices and similar horrors. God ordered the Israelites to kill all the men,women and children in many of the cities taken during the invasion of the land by the Jews.
10.However, more Is known historically from non-Biblical sources about the religion that the Celtae practiced. Ancient historians had a variety of horrors to tell about the Celtae giants, including the fact that they were homosexuals (another crime which dictated the death penalty under Mosaic law). Athenaeus states that the giants were accustomed to sleeping with not one but two boys. The historian Diodorus also suggested that homosexuality was rampant among the giants when he wrote:
“Although their wives are comely, they have very little to do with them, but rage with lust in outlandish fashion for the embraces of males. And the most astonishing thing of all is that they feel no concern for their proper dignity but prostitute to others without a qualm the flower of their bodies; nor do they consider this a disgraceful thing to do, but rather when anyone of them is thus approached and refuses the favor offered him, this they consider an act of dishonor.”
These passages also provide important links that help prove the Celtae are Nephilim.
  1. Not surprisingly, the religion that the Celtae practiced was also savage and brutal. This religion has come to be known best for the blood-thirsty priests who led its unspeakable acts, the "Druids." The actual practices of this religion have mercifully been lost to our modern age. This came about through the number of conquests of the areas ruled by the Celtae giants by the Romans and later the Norsemen, Normans and Saxons. The spread of Christianity through the region spelled the final death blow for the bloody practices of the Druids, leaving behind only altars designed for human sacrifices and the placement of "magic" stone monuments that have recently been discovered to have been carefully aligned with the stars, planets, sun and moon. The Druid religion is currently being revived by New Age and neo-pagan groups worldwide another horrifying fact that suggests another assault against the human race might be in place even as we speak.
Because Ireland was never successfully invaded by the Romans, it remained the last holdout of the human beings who practiced the religion of the Druids after the last of the Celtae giants had apparently died off. St. Patrick and St. Columcille are generally credited with bringing an end to the pagan practices. (St. Patrick was also credited with driving the snakes from Ireland; one might speculate that these "snakes" might have been serpents similar to the serpent in the Garden of Eden. If so, these might have been some sort of fallen angels in the form of reptiles.) There are a few horrific details that have filtered down to us about the Druids' practices, however. One is that these priests not only placed their blessings on human sacrifice, they often performed the rites themselves.
Julius Caesar wrote:
“The Gauls believe the power of the immortal gods can be appeased only if one human life is exchanged for another and they have sacrifices of this kind regularly established by the community. Some of them have enormous images made of wickerwork, the limbs of which they fill with living men; these are set on fire and the men perish, enveloped in the flames. They believe that the gods prefer it if the executed have been caught in the act of theft or armed robbery or some other crime. But when the supply of such victims runs out, they even go to the extent of sacrificing innocent men.”
  1. Diodorus had an even more horrifying story about how the Celtae giants attempted to read the future:
“They devote to death a human being and plunge a dagger into him in the region above the diaphragm, and when the stricken victim has fallen, they read the future from the manner of his fall and from the twitching of his limbs, as well as from the gushing of the blood, having learned to place confidence in an ancient and long-continued practice of observing such matters."
The exact religious practices of the Anakim are unknown But suffice it to say that the little that has filtered down to us reflects the extreme wickedness and savagery of the Old Testament accounts of these creatures. That groups around the world are now in the process of reviving the Druid and Egyptian practices also speaks volumes about where many in our own times are headed, and what they are really trying to accomplish by reviving this depraved religion.... things are just not always what they appear to be.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? “There were GIANTS in the earth in those days....”
[Revelation 9:1] And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
[Revelation 9:2] And he opened the bottomless pit; ...”
  1. The assertions starts with the burden of proof listed in, “GIANTS I”, based on the following statement, and further proved beyond doubt that there were indeed a number of civilizations that were giants:
GENESIS 6:2
That the SONS OF GOD saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose....
GENESIS 6:4
There were GIANTS in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the SONS OF GOD (Fallen Angels) came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
The standard contention is: is this biblical myth, or is this a historical reality of the past... and today?
The new challenging assertion set before you is this: where are they now, if they ever really did exist? The answer?....“the inner earth”. And the entrances to this new homeland: one at the extreme northern axis of the earth, the other at the extreme southern axis.
Throughout history and various cultures, this new homeland has taken on various appellations:
The Ultimate Thule Aggartha Shamballa Shangri-La Elusian Fields Asgard Atlantis Valhalla Realm of Jason & the Argonauts, etc.
As fantastic as the assertion sounds, the burden of proof resides in this brief documentation. But to save space, and not to try your patience, I have only chosen select passages from each publications included therein. Nevertheless, let us start from the most ancient documentation, progressing to the more contemporary -
Your intellectual foundations are about to be challenged... For truth is sometimes much stranger than fiction
From the “SECRETS OF ENOCH” 2. “The men (literally, angels) took me on to the fifth heaven and placed me, and there I saw many and countless soldiers, called Grigori (rebellious angels), of human appearance, and their size was greater than that of great giants...”
  1. “And I said to the Grigori: ‘I saw your brethren and their works, and their great torments, and I prayed for them, but the Lord has condemned them to be under earth till heaven and earth shall end forever’. ....”
  2. THE BOOK OF ENOCH (The Watchers)
  3. “Then they (the angels) took wives, each choosing for himself, whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the divining of roots and trees. And the women conceiving brought forth giants, whom stature was each three hundreth cubits. ....
  4. ”To Michael likewise the Lord said,... bind them for seventy generations underneaththe earth,...”
  5. “From there I went on towards the extremities of the earth; where I saw large beasts different from each other, and birds various in countenances and forms, as well as with notes of different sounds. ... ”
  6. “From there I advanced on towards the north, to the extremities of the earth. And there I saw a great and glorious wonder at the extremities of the whole earth.I saw there heavenly gates opening into heavens; three of them distinctly separated. The northern winds proceeded from them, blowing cold, hail, frost, snow, dew, and rain....”
THE BOOK OF JUBILEES 9. “...that the angels of God saw them (earthly women) on a certain year of this jubilee, that they were beautiful to look upon; and they took themselves wives of all whom they chose, and they bare to them sons and they were giants. ...”
10.“And against the angels whom He (God) had sent upon earth, He was exceedingly wroth, and He gave commandment to root them out of all their dominion, and He bade us to bind them in the depths of the earth, and behold they bound in the midst of them...”

ADMIRAL RICHARD B. BYRD'S DIARY (FEB - MAR.1947)
(“The Inner Earth : My Secret Diary”) THE LAND BEYOND THE POLES - THE EXPLORATION FLIGHT OVER THE NORTH POLE.
I must write this diary in secrecy and obscurity. It concerns my Arctic flight of the nineteenth day of February in the year of Nineteen and Forty Seven.
There comes a time when the rationality of men must fade into insignificance and one must accept the inevitability of the Truth! am not at liberty to disclose the following documentation at this writing... perhaps it shall never see the light of public scrutiny, but I must do my duty and record here for all to read one day. In a world of greed and exploitation of certain of mankind, one can no longer suppress that which is truth.
1. FLIGHT LOG: BASE CAMP ARCTIC, 2119/1947 0600 HOURS - All preparations are complete for our flight north ward and we are airborne with full fuel tanks at 0610 Hours.....
0910 HOURS - Vast Ice and snow below, note coloration of yellowish nature, and dispersed in a linear pattern. Altering course for a better examination of this color pattern below, note reddish or purple color also. Circle this area two full turns and return to assigned compass heading. Position check made again to base camp, and relay information concerning colorations in the Ice and snow below.
0910 HOURS - Both Magnetic and Gyro compasses beginning to gyrate and wobble, we are unable to hold our heading by instrumentation. Take bearing with Sun compass, yet all seems well. The controls are seemingly slow to respond and have sluggish quality, but there is no indication of Icing!
0915 HOURS - In the distance is what appears to be mountains.
0949 HOURS -29 minutes elapsed flight time from the first sighting of the mountains, it is no illusion. They are mountains and consisting of a small range that I have never seen before!
0955 HOURS - Altitude change to 2950 feet, encountering strong turbulence again.
2. 1000 HOURS
We are crossing over the small mountain range and still proceeding northward as best as can be ascertained. Beyond the mountain range is what appears to be a valley with a small river or stream running through the center portion. There should be no green valley below! Something is definitely wrong and abnormal here! We should be over Ice and Snow! To the portside are great forests growing on the mountain slopes. ...
1.To this point, Ch.7, pg. 80. 2.To this point, Ch.7, pg. 81.
1140 HOURS - Another radio message received. We begin the landing process now, and in moments the plane shudders slightly, and begins a descent as though caught in some great unseen elevator! The downward motion is negligible, and we touch down with only a slight jolt!
1.1145 HOURS - I am making a hasty last entry in the flight log. Several men are approaching on foot toward our aircraft. They are tall with blond hair.
2.In the distance is a large shimmering city pulsating with rainbow hues of color. I do not know what is going to happen now, but I see no signs of weapons on those approaching. I hear now a voice ordering me by name to open the cargo door. I comply.
END LOG
3. MARCH 11, 1947 I have just attended a staff meeting at the Pentagon. I have stated fully my discovery and the message from the Master. All is duly recorded. The President has been advised. I am now detained for several hours (six hours, thirty-nine minutes, to be exact.) I am interviewed intently by Top Security Forces and a medical team. It was an ordeal! I am placed under strict control via the national security provisions of this United States of America. I am ORDERED TO REMAIN SILENT IN REGARD TO ALL THAT I HAVE LEARNED, ON THE BEHALF OF HUMANITY! Incredible! I am reminded that I am a military man I must obey orders....
In further confirmation of Admiral Byrd's discovery are reports of individuals who claimed they had entered the north polar opening, as many Arctic explorers did without knowing they did, and penetrated far enough into it to reach the Subterranean World in the hollow interior of the Earth. Dr. Nephi Cottom of Los Angeles reported that one of his patients, a man of Nordic descent, told him the following story:
"I lived near the Arctic Circle in Norway. One summer my friend and I made up our minds to take a boat trip together, and go as far as we could into the north country. So we put one month's food provisions in a small fishing boat, and with sail and also a good engine in our boat, we set to sea.
  1. At the end of one month we had travelled far into the north, beyond the Pole and into a strange new country. We were much astonished at the weather there. Warm, and at times at night it was almost too warm to sleep. Then we saw something so strange that we both were astonished. Ahead of the warm open sea we were on what looked like a great mountain. Into that mountain at a certain point the ocean seemed to be emptying. Mystified, we continued in that direction and found ourselves sailing into a vast canyon leading into the interior of the earth. We kept sailing and then we saw what surprised us - a sun shining inside the earth!”
  2. Several of the inner earth inhabitants - huge giants - detected our boat on the river, and were quite amazed...
1.See “GIANTS 1”, for more details on this description. 2.To this point, Ch.7, pg. 82. 3.Ch.7, pg. 85. 4.Ch.1, pg. 12-13. 5.Ch.1, pg. 13.
  1. The presence of the open sea in the Northland is also explained. Olaf Jansen claims that the northern aperture, intake or hole, so to speak, is about fourteen hundred miles across. In connection with this, let us read what Explorer Jansen 'writes, on page 288 of his book: “I have never had such a splendid sail. On to the north steadily north, with a good wind, as fast as stream and sail can take us, an open sea mile after mile, watch after watch, through these unknown regions, always clearer and clearer of ice, one might almost say: 'How long will it last?' The eye always turns to the northward as one paces the bridge. It is gazing into the future. But them is always the same dark sky ahead which means open sea.” Again, the Norwood Review of England, in its issue of May 10, 1884, says: “We do not admit that there is ice up to the Pole - once inside the great ice barrier, a new world breaks upon the Explorer, the climate is mild like that of England, and, afterward, balmy as the Greek Isles.”.....
  2. My name is Olaf Jansen. I am a Norwegian, although I was born in the little seafaring Russian town of Uleaborg, on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Bothnia, the northern arm of the Baltic Sea.
I was in my nineteenth year when we started on what proved to be our last trip as fishermen, and which resulted in the strange story that shall be given to the world, - but not until I have finished my earthly pilgrimage...
There was a tradition my father explained, that still farther northward was a land more beautiful than any that mortal man had ever known, and that it was inhabited by the Chosen.
  1. My youthful imagination was fired by the ardor, zeal and religious fervor of my good father, and I exclaimed: 'why not sail to this goodly land? The sky is fair, the wind favorable and the sea open."....
The compass, which we had fastened back in its place, in fear of another storm, was still pointing due north, and moving on its pivot just as it had in Stockholm. The dipping of the needle had ceased. What could this mean? Then, too, our many days of sailing had certainly carried us far past the North Pole. And yet the needle continued to point north. We were sorely perplexed, for surely our direction was now south.....
  1. Along the banks great forests miles in extent could be seen stretching away on the shoreline. The trees were of enormous size. We landed after anchoring near a sandy beach, and waded ashore, and were rewarded by finding a quantity of nuts that were very palatable and satisfying to hunger, and a welcome change from the monotony of our stock of provisions....
1.Excerpt from the author’s Forward, pg. 5. 2.From this point on, all quotes are from Olaf Jansen, whom is dictating the story to W.G. Emerson. Pg. 7. 3.Ch.2, pg. 10. 4.Ch.3, pg. 15.

It was about the first of September, over five months we calculated, since our leave taking from Stockholm Suddenly we were frightened almost out of our wits by hearing in the far distance the singing of people. Very soon thereafter we discovered a huge ship gliding down the river directly toward us. Those aboard were singing in one mighty chorus that, echoing from bank to bank, sounded like a thousand voices, filling the whole universe with quivering melody. The accompaniment was played on stringed instruments not unlike our harps.
It was a larger ship than any we had ever seen, and was differently constructed....
The immense craft paused, and almost immediately a boat was lowered and six men of gigantic stature rowed to our little fishing-sloop. They spoke to us in a strange language. We knew from their manner, however, that they were not unfriendly. They talked a great deal among themselves, and one of them laughed immoderately, as though in finding us a queer discovery had been made. One of them spied our compass, and it seemed to interest them more than any other part of our sloop.....
  1. "They seem to be kindly disposed," I replied, "although what terrible giants! They must be the select six of the kingdom's crack regiment. Just look at their great size...."
  2. The surprise of my father and myself was indescribable when, amid the regal magnificence of a spacious hall, we were finally brought before the Great High Priest, ruler over all the land. He was richly robed, and much taller than those about him, and could not have been less than fourteen or fifteen feet in height. The immense room in which we were received seemed finished in solid slabs of gold thickly studded with jewels of amazing brilliancy....
  3. I remember hearing my father remark that the giant race of people in the land of 'The Smoky God had almost as accurate an idea of the geography of the "outside" surface of the earth as had the average college professor in Stockholm.......
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” Phillipian 2:10
“And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.” Revelations 5:3
“Seven rivers I beheld upon earth, greater than all rivers, one of which takes its course from the west; it to a great sea its water flows. Two comes from the north to the sea, there waters flowing into the Erythraean sea, on the east. And with respect to the remaining four, they take their course in the cavity of the north” Book Of Enoch 76:6-7
1.Ch.3, pg. 16. 2.Ch.3, pg. 19. 3.Ch.4, pg. 21.

PROLOGUE:
IN THE FIRST PLACE PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT I do not expect you to believe this story. Nor could you wonder had you witnessed a recent experience of mine when, in the armor of blissful and stupendous ignorance, I gaily narrated the gist of it to a Fellow of the Royal Geological Society on the occasion of my last trip to London....
1.The erudite gentleman in whom I confided congealed before I was half through! It is all that saved him from exploding--and my dreams of an Honorary Fellowship, gold medals, and a niche in the Hall of Fame faded into the thin, cold air of his arctic atmosphere....
As I looked I began to appreciate the reason for the strangeness of the landscape that had haunted me from the first with an illusive suggestion of the bizarre and unnatural - THERE WAS NO HORIZON! As far as the eye could reach out the sea continued and upon its bosom floated tiny islands, those in the distance reduced to mere specks; but ever beyond them was the sea, until the impression became quite real that one was LOOKING UP at the most distant point that the eyes could fathom -distance was lost in the distance. That was all - here was no clear-cut horizontal line marking the dip of the globe below the line of vision". A great light is commencing to break on me," continued Perry, taking out his watch. "I believe that I have partially solved the riddle It is now two o'clock. When we emerged from the prospector the sun was directly above us. Where is it now?"
  1. I glanced up to find the great orb still motionless in the center of the heaven. And such a sun! I had scarcely noticed it before. Fully thrice the size of the sun I had known throughout my life, and apparently so near that the sight of it carried the conviction that one might almost reach up and touch it.....
When we had passed out of the amphitheater onto the great plain we saw a caravan of men and women - human beings like ourselves-and for the first time hope and relief filled my heart, until I could have cried out in the exuberance of my happiness. It is true that they were a half-naked, wild-appearing aggregation; but they at least were fashioned along the same lines as ourselves - there was nothing grotesque or horrible about them as about the other creatures in this strange, weird world.
  1. But as we came closer, our hearts sank once more, for we discovered that the poor wretches were chained neck to neck in a long line,... With little ceremony Perry and I were chained at the end of the line, and without further ado the interrupted march was resumed....
  2. On we stumbled beneath that hateful noonday sun. If we fell we were prodded with a sharp point. Our companions in chains did not stumble. They strode along proudly erect. Occasionally they would exchange words with one another in a monosyllabic language. They were a noble-appearing race with well-formed heads and perfect physiques. The men were heavily bearded, tall and muscular; the women, smaller and more gracefully molded, with great masses of raven hair caught into loose knots upon their heads. The features of both sexes were well proportioned..........
1 .As stated in the title, this is an excerpt from the author’s Prologue, E.R. Burroughs; it ends here. 2. Ch.1, pg. 7. From this point forward, the quotes are quoted by David Innes to Burroughs. 3. Ch.3. pg. 13. 4. Ch.3. pg. 14.

MY EPILOGUE: There are some additional notes I wish to point out before closing. According to the ancient manuscripts, the Watchers not only provoked God by going into earthly women but, they also provoked Him by going into different animals - bestiality. And they taught man these depraved acts as well. And the results of their offspring, as you would probably surmise: terrible giants, unheard of abominations, horrible to look upon. Even the ancient historian Herodotus (circa 500 BC) made minute quotes of some of these atrocities (sic) of nature. But let us quote from another ancient manuscripts that was mentioned by the chroniclers of Joshua 10:13, and 2 Samuel 1:18 :
From THE BOOK OF JASHER 1.“And their judges and rulers (which were the giants at this time) went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and son of men of those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of field, and fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw that the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.”
From THE BOOK OF JUBILEES
2.“And lawlessness increased on the earth and all flesh corrupted its way, alike men and cattle and beasts and birds and everything that walks on the earth - all of them corrupted their ways and their orders, and they began to devour each other,...”
  1. ...and the earth was filled with inquity (sic). And after this they sinned against the beasts and the birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth...”
I think it may be high time that we all had a little private conference with our teachers of Archaeology, Paleontology, Anthropology, Geology, and as well as Geography and Cartography.
“And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” Job 1:7

The National Arts Club’s second annual One-Act Play Festival features short new works by notable playwrights – John Pielmeier, Steven Otfinoski, David Masello, among others – that examine the art of conversation. Each of the chosen works features two characters in dialogue, and it is through their talk that deep truths, conflicts, and resolution are reached.The plays, which will be performed this evening as staged readings, are a mix of the humorous, the poignant, the absurd. The “art of conversation” is practiced at its best in these works.

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

Budapest Festival Orchestra Cocoa Concert, 2/23

Accessibility at Lincoln Center and the Budapest Festival Orchestra bring Cocoa Concerts, a family concert Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra has specially designed to include young people within the autism spectrum and their family members. This one-hour concert consists of brief classical-music movements, performed by members of the world-renowned orchestra, in an inclusive and supported environment. While the visual tools, music and communication techniques are created with children with autism in mind, all young people with disabilities are welcomed.
The Budapest Festival Orchestra puts its heart and soul into organizing programs accessible to everyone, seeking to bring children with autism and development disabilities into the magical world of music. Conductor Iván Fischer and the BFO have been performing their Cocoa Concerts for years, and it is an important mission for BFO as these events enable children to enjoy enriching activities and to experience the joy and power of music.
The orchestra’s musicians will perform in various chamber-music setups and will show, through the deft selection of music, the exciting things instruments can do and how much fun it is to play music together. Before introducing the musicians, Iván Fischer will explain the upcoming piece and what details are worth paying attention to.
Before the concert begins, all audience members will receive a handout detailing the instruments used and the program, as well as colorful stickers to mark the finished pieces after every ovation, helping everyone remain engaged during the concert.
Following the concert, families are invited to join the musicians for hot cocoa.
Recommended for children aged 5 and up and their families. This program is specifically designed for children with autism, however, all are welcomed.
This performance is free, but space is limited.

Behind the Sun, Above the Moon Anthology Launch, 2/23

Come celebrate the book launch for the anthology Behind the Sun Above the Moon, a short story collection by nonbinary authors featuring SFF stories with a brief reading hosted by contributing authors Emmett Nahil and Sara Codair. Behind the Sun, Above the Moon centers trans and non-binary Own Voices writers, which enables them to imagine alternative futures and create fabulist worlds for themselves. Emmett Nahil (he/him) is a queer writer, artist, and game producer working on the indie game Love Shore (2021). He’s interested in intersectional activism, diverse representation for other queer Middle Easterners, and bringing more nuanced work to all kinds of weird literature. He has been known to favor horror, sci-fi, urban/modern fantasy, and trans-inclusive speculative fiction. Follow him on twitter, @_emmays. Sara Codair is the author over fifty short stories, which are packed with action, adventure, magic, and the bizarre. They partially owe their success to their faithful feline writing partner, Goose the Meowditor-In-Chief, who likes to “edit” their work by deleting entire pages. Sara’s debut novel, Power Surge, was published by NineStar Press on Oct. 1, 2018 and the sequel will be out sometime in 2020. Find Sara online at http://saracodair.com or @shatteredsmooth.

She creates interdisciplinary works and performs at international venues and festivals. Her ritual performance Wild Cotton was recently cited as one “with subtlety and vision” by the New York Times. In 2018, Uzuri was a commissioned composer for Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Uzuri is a former Park Avenue Armory Artist-in-Residence and was a 2019 Jerome Foundation Composer-in-Residence at Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France. Uzuri and ensemble will share an intimate concert of compositions from her various works for voice, strings, flute, and piano, including music from her large music work Placeless, her cantata Conjure Woman, the world premiere of her Chamber Music America New Jazz Works commission, and selections from her forthcoming chamber opera Hush Arbor (The Opera), a mercurial musical meditation exploring themes of death, transcendence, rebirth, impermanence and “liminality” (standing at the threshold).

Who's Coding Our Future? Algorithms, Culture, Ethics: A Conversation With Judith Michelle Williams and Clive Thompson, 2/28

Join us and our partner creative tech organization, CTW for a conversation moderated by Isabel Walcott Draves about how computer programmers and their algorithms are shaping our world. First, we'll hear from Clive Thompson, Canadian science and technology writer for publications like The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, Wired and Entertainment Weekly. His book Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World explores the culture and influence of the programmers that increasingly impact so much of our daily lives. We'll pair him with Judith Michelle Williams, Senior Vice President, Global Head of People Sustainability & Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at SAP. Williams, who has also managed global diversity programs at Dropbox and Google, will offer deep insight into bias in the world of tech and the importance of diversity in software engineering teams. We'll round out the evening with a participatory discussion with the audience -- that's you! -- about your experiences interacting with algorithms, hidden influence, fairness, and who gets to create the culture of this coming age of Artificial Intelligence.

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

2020.02.06 08:48 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: Lemon. Wet. Guilty. by Sarah Lazarus & Crooked Media (02/05/20)

"I tried to find one page I could spare that didn’t have a lie on it." - House Shredder Nancy Pelosi

Merci, Pierre Delecto

The Senate has voted to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment, bringing his rigged trial to a close along strict party lines, but for one remarkable Republican defection.
Other moderate Republicans are looking particularly pathetic right about now.
The impeachment process has formally ended, but the story is far from over. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said the House expects to continue its investigation and will likely subpoena John Bolton. New reporting on internal Pentagon emails, which show that officials were stunned by Trump's order to freeze military aid to Ukraine, came out just today. With the exception of Mitt Romney, all Republican senators have just signed their names in Sharpie under Trump’s corruption and criminality.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Have you gotten tickets to our tour yet? The time has come, friend. Come hang out with us

Under The Radar

Last night’s State of the Union address was one part tame campaign rally and one part reality show. Without ever explicitly mentioning impeachment, Trump made hideously dishonest claims about the economy, pledged to continue fighting abortion rights and gun restrictions, stoked xenophobic fears, and bragged about killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qassem Suleimani with macabre anecdotes. The speech took a turn for the truly surreal when Trump introduced one of his guests—America’s loudest racist, Rush Limbaugh—and said that he would award Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but then had Melania award Limbaugh the medal right there during the speech. Three democrats walked out of the chamber in protest, and ten more boycotted the event entirely.
Fred Guttenberg, the father of a Parkland shooting victim, was handcuffed and detained after he interrupted the proceedings. Guttenberg attended as one of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s guests, and said he was unable to keep his emotions in check when Trump first said that human life is “a sacred gift from God,” then went on to declare that gun rights were “under siege all across our country.” Guttenberg yelled out about his daughter Jaime, and was escorted out by security.
Pelosi fittingly ripped up a printed copy of Trump’s remarks at the conclusion of the address, a gesture that quickly went viral and which many Republicans are pretending to be mad about.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) delivered the Democratic Party’s official rebuttal and used the opportunity to direct focus away from Trump, and towards Democrats’ policy agenda.

What Else?

The Trump administration is withholding $823 million for a clean energy program, according to congressional Democrats. Good thing Trump has learned his lesson, SUSAN MARGARET COLLINS.
A 32-year-old U.S. citizen who was arrested by Border Patrol agents has died in government custody. CBP says the man was arrested as a suspect in “an alien smuggling incident.”
Ten passengers and a crew member from a cruise ship in Japan have been diagnosed with coronavirus. About 3,700 people on the ship will be quarantined for two weeks, confined to their cabins.
One person died and 157 more were injured when a plane skidded off the runway in Istanbul. The Boeing 737, landing in bad weather, ultimately crashed into a ditch and broke into pieces. Passengers climbed through gaps in the fuselage to escape.
Juul targeted Native American tribes while pitching its products, according to a report by congressional investigators. In addition to marketing e-cigarettes to high school students, Juul admitted that it had pitched its products to the leaders of at least eight Native American tribes, and discussed a “switching program” for cigarette smokers.
New York State eliminated real estate broker fees for renters. Housing regulators added the rule in an addendum to last year’s rent laws, catching landlords and lawmakers by surprise.
Two butterfly activists have been found dead in Mexico in less than a week, both bearing signs of blunt force trauma. One of the activists, Homero Gómez González, was the founder of a monarch butterfly reserve, and had previously received death threats for his work to protect the land from logging.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did a big ol’ self-own with a Simpsons reference. Pompeo tried to mock Pelosi after the State of the Union by tweeting a picture of Lisa Simpson crying over torn paper, but the still is from an episode in which Lisa becomes disillusioned with politics after witnessing some bribery. Also a former Simpsons writer told Pompeo to fuck off.
Florida police found a bag full of drugs labeled “Bag Full of Drugs.” That’s it, that’s the bag full of drugs.
Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas has died. He was 103.

Be Smarter

The Iowa Democratic party continued to release results in batches through Wednesday afternoon. With 86 percent of the precincts reporting, Pete Buttigieg has taken the lead in state delegate equivalents, while Bernie Sanders is leading in first alignment vote totals. The candidates are already campaigning in New Hampshire ahead of next week’s primary, and the confusion around Iowa’s results means the field hasn’t winnowed. Joe Biden took direct swings at Sanders and Buttigieg after finishing a disappointing fourth in Iowa, calling Sanders unelectable, and Buttigieg a risky, inexperienced choice. Should be a nice, mellow debate on Friday.

What A Sponsor

Shopping online is supposed to be easy, so why is finding working coupon codes so hard? It doesn’t have to be if you have Honey. Honey is the free money-saving browser extension that makes online shopping (and your life) just a little bit easier.
How does it work? Start by downloading Honey to your browser (it only takes a few seconds). Then, the next time you shop online, look for the dropdown box and click “Apply coupons.” In moments, Honey will automatically search its database of all the working promo codes on the internet and apply them to your cart automatically.
It works on over 30,000 sites—like J Crew, Target, Sephora, eBay, Best Buy, Adidas, and Nordstrom—and will help you score the lowest price possible on things you’re already buying anyway. In fact, it’s found its members over 2 billion dollars in savings. That’s probably why it has over 100,000 five-star reviews on the Google Chrome store.
Even if a store doesn't have active codes available, you’ll earn Honey Gold for qualifying purchases that you can redeem for free gift cards—that way, you save money no matter what. So do yourself a favor and get it now, so the next time you're buying online, you're ready to go. Your future self will thank you.

Is That Hope I Feel?

New York City will offer free mental health care to all new parents. Chirlane McCray, the creator and overseer of ThriveNYC, is leading a citywide effort to provide help to the one-in-five mothers who experience postpartum depression. Through the New Family Home Visits initiative, every first-time parent in the city will be eligible for at-home screenings for anxiety and postpartum depression. The initiative will also help connect mothers with mental health services. When the program has fully ramped by 2024, it will be the largest of its kind in the country.

2020.01.18 14:51 SACRED-GEOMETRY Timeline of the Long Island Serial Killer case

Edit: Time timeline is outdated. Please see https://www.gilgocase.com/timeline.html

This is a work-in-progress timeline of the LISK case.
Cases with an asterisk (*) next to them are not officially linked to the Long Island Serial Killer.
You may find it helpful to use a map while reading:
February 1, 1982*
  • Tina Foglia (19) was last seen in the early morning hours of February 1, 1982 at a rock music venue in West Islip. Her dismembered body was discovered by Department of Transportation workers on February 3 along the shoulder of the Southern State Parkway. Her remains were placed in three separate plastic garbage bags, and were found a few miles north of the Robert Moses Causeway, which leads to Gilgo Beach and Oak Beach. A diamond ring that Foglia was known to wear was missing.
  • The DNA of an unknown male was found on the garbage bags. Police have not ruled out the possibility that Tina Foglia was an early victim of the Long Island Serial Killer.1
  • Tina Foglia:
April 20, 1996
  • Two female legs, wrapped in a plastic bag, are discovered on Fire Island west of Davis Park Beach.
  • The victim's skull would later be found on April 11, 2011 west of Tobay Beach in Nassau County and linked by DNA.1, 2
  • "Jane Doe No. 7 / Fire Island Jane Doe":
June 28, 1997
  • The dismembered torso of an unidentified young African-American female was found in Hempstead Lake State Park, New York. The torso was found in a green plastic container which was dumped next to a road. Both arms, head, and legs below the knee were severed and have not been located. The victim had a tattoo of a heart-shaped peach with a bite out of it on her left breast.1
  • On April 11, 2011, police in Nassau County discovered dismembered skeletal human remains inside a plastic bag near Jones Beach State Park, nicknamed "Jane Doe No. 3". DNA analysis identified this victim as the mother of "Baby Doe."2 She was found wearing gold jewelry similar to that of "Baby Doe."3
  • In December 2016, Peaches and Jane Doe No. 3 were positively identified as being the same person.4
  • "Jane Doe No. 3 / Peaches":
November 19, 2000
  • The body of a woman is discovered by hikers in the Long Island Pine Barrens in Manorville, off of Halsey Manor Road. She was a white woman in her 30s with brown hair. She had been dead for several weeks before her nude, headless body was found, cut into pieces and stuffed in plastic bags.
  • April 4, 2011, her head, hands and right foot were found in a plastic bag in the vicinity of Ocean Parkway on Gilgo Beach.1
  • On May 22, 2020 police in Long Island announced they had positively identified the “Manorville Jane Doe” and will be releasing her identity.2
  • "Jane Doe No. 6 / Manorville Jane Doe":
November 23, 2000*
  • Hunters found the body of a white or Hispanic man in his 20s with black hair in the woods off the eastbound side of the Long Island Expressway (LIE) near Exit 68 in North Shirley. He was wearing light blue-and-white striped GAP boxer shorts. He had "multiple traumatic injuries including crushed larynx" implying he was strangled.
July 26, 2003
  • A naked and dismembered torso, missing its head and hands, was discovered 45 miles east of Gilgo Beach in Manorville, New York.1 The victim was identified as Jessica Taylor (20), an escort from Washington, D.C. She was last seen days earlier at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.2 Taylor's torso was found atop a pile of scrap wood at the end of a paved access road off of Halsey Manor Road, just north of where it crosses the LIE. Plastic sheeting was found underneath the torso, and a tattoo on her body had been mutilated with a sharp instrument. Medical examiners determined the tattoo was a red heart with an angel wing that said, ‘‘Remy’s angel”.
  • On May 9, 2011, it was reported that the remains of a skull, a pair of hands, and a forearm found on March 29 at Gilgo were matched to Jessica Taylor.3
November 10, 2003*
  • A body was found south of the Long Island Expressway in Manorville. Hunters discovered the body in a wooded area several hundred yards from the expressway. Autopsy results were inconclusive (per the newspaper articles linked blow). The victim was Caucasian, 35 to 50 years old, about 5-foot-6 and had died up to four months earlier.1, 2
  • There is speculation that the body could have been dumped at the same time as Jessica Taylor's body.
  • There is not much information about this, aside from a few newspaper articles. Unable to find pages for this victim at DoeNetwork and NamUs. There was an IdentifyUs page that no longer works. If you find any information please contact me.
    • Newspaper articles: 1, 2
March 3, 2007*
  • A suitcase containing the dismembered torso of an unidentified Hispanic or light-skinned African-American female washed up on a beach at Harbor Island Park, in the town of Mamaroneck. One of her dismembered legs washed up at Cold Spring Harbor on March 21, 2007, and her other leg washed up at Oyster Bay in the village of Cove Neck the following day. The victim was determined to have been stabbed to death.1
  • The victim had a tattoo of two cherries on her left breast, which was similar in appearance to the tattoo found on Peaches. Never identified, the victim is referred to as "Cherries" by investigators. "Cherries" was dismembered in a fashion similar to three other victims: Jessica Taylor, "Peaches", and "Jane Doe No. 6", meaning she may be linked to the other official victims.
  • "Cherries":
July 9, 2007
  • Maureen Brainard-Barnes (25) is last seen in her room at the Super 8 Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Her last known call that night is to her sister, Missy, during which she says she is at Penn Station.
  • Shortly after her disappearance, a friend of Maureen's, Sara Karnes, received a call from a man on an unfamiliar number. The man claimed that he had just seen Maureen and that she was alive and staying at a “whorehouse in Queens”. He refused to identify himself and could not tell Karnes the location of the house. He told Karnes he would call back and give her the address, but he never called again. Karnes said that the man had no discernible New York or Boston accent.1
  • Her body was found in December 2010 located very close to three other victims.2, 3
June 27, 2008*
  • The dismembered remains of Tanya Rush (39) were found in Bellmore on a grassy shoulder of the Southern State Parkway, crammed into a small dark suitcase.1
    • Tanya Rush Websleuths threads: 1, 2
July 12, 2009
  • Melissa Barthelemy (24) was last seen outside her apartment on Underhill Avenue in the Bronx. At some point, the security camera of her local bank recorded her depositing $1,000 into her account, believed to be money she'd received from a date she’d had earlier that night. She withdrew $100 before heading out the door. Her boyfriend/pimp, John "Blaze" Terry, would later say that he knew Melissa had lined up another $1,000 date the next night, somewhere on Long Island. She went by the working name "Chloe."1
  • Shortly afterwards, her sister, Amanda, received 6-7 phone calls from a man using Melissa's cell phone and claiming to be her killer.2. The first calls were on July 16, July 19, and July 23 and the final call was on August 26. The calls were placed from crowded locations in New York City, including Madison Square Garden and Times Square. In one instance, police determined that Barthelemy’s phone had been turned on near Massapequa, Long Island, and that someone had gained access to her voice mail.3
  • Her body was discovered December 11, 2010 beside Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.4
May 1, 2010*
  • Shannan Maria Gilbert (23) was a New Jersey woman who may have been a victim of the Long Island serial killer. Gilbert had been working as an escort. She left for a client's house (Brewer) in Oak Beach after midnight on May 1, 2010. At 4:51 in the morning, 911 dispatchers received a panicked phone call from Gilbert who can be heard saying that there was someone "after her" and that "they" were trying to kill her. She was last seen a short time later banging on the front door of a nearby Oak Beach residence and screaming for help before running off into the night. Neighbors Gus Coletti and Barbara Brennan are among the last to see her.1
  • On December 13, 2011, Gilbert's remains are found in a marsh, half a mile from where she was last seen.2 In May 2012, the Suffolk County medical examiners ruled that Gilbert accidentally drowned after entering the marsh. They believe that she was in a drug induced panic, and have concluded that her cause of death was "undetermined." Her family believes she was murdered.3

  • Two days after Shannan Gilbert's disappearance, Dr. Peter Hackett, an Oak Beach resident and neighbor of Brewer, called Gilbert's mother, Mari Gilbert. He claimed he was taking care of Gilbert, and that he "ran a home for wayward girls." Three days later, he called the mother again, denying that he had any contact with her daughter.
    • Investigators later confirmed through phone records that Hackett called Mari twice following the disappearance. Telephone records show that calls were placed from Dr. Hackett's cellphone on May 3, 2010 and from his home phone on May 6 to Mari Gilbert's cellphone, and on the latter date from Dr. Hackett's home phone to Shannan's sister Sheree's cellphone.
  • The marshy area where Gilbert's remains were found was also noted as near Hackett's backyard. Gilbert's family filed a wrongful death suit against Hackett in November 2012, claiming that he took Gilbert into his home that morning and administered drugs to her, facilitating her death. Later police revealed that Hackett had a history of inserting himself into, or exaggerating his role in, certain major events. Police also noted that Hackett's wife and two children were home on the night of Gilbert's disappearance. Police later ruled out Hackett as a suspect in the deaths of Gilbert and the LISK victims.1

2019.12.24 19:15 MrSilenceT What Is Dead May Never Die (part 3)

Old Kingsroad

Until this point, Euron had done a masterful job at setting up the right pieces for the Last Storm: his 1,000 ships were saved; Dany's forces had been reduced to a more manageable size; and he was on his way to Essos to meet with an old friend. The problem was: why would anyone embark on his fleet?
Now that the Night King had been miserably defeated in s08e03, there was no reason for people to get on the Ironborn ships. Luckily for our Drowned God, he could count on the support of another deity: the God of Death.
"Ode to the Night King," Ringer Records, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y45HRRaXdiM (0:01 - 1:23):
[Refrain]:
  • "Yeah, I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad; I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more;"
  • "I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad; I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more."
The Kingsroad is the longest highway in the Seven Kingdoms, running from Castle Black to Winterfell, all the way down to King's Landing, through the Isle of Faces: https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbow9zUMnzUJhBxcUXNBnCpdKAT4y4=/800x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/3674154/Google_Map_Westeros.0.jpg. From s07e07 to s08e03, the Night King took this road to head to Winterfell.
[Verse 1]:
  • "I got the corpses in the back; Dead horse is attached; Castle matted black; And you know we take the black;"
  • "Ridin' on a horse, ha; Coming with my force; I been in the North;"
  • "You ain't been up out of Dorne;" --> Referring to Varys's Aegon having never been out of Dorne until s08e06.
[Chorus]:
  • "Now, can't nobody tell me nothin'; You can't tell me nothin';"
  • "Can't nobody tell me nothin'; You can't tell me nothin';"
No one can stop the Night King and the White Walkers.
[Verse 2]:
  • "Ridin' on a dragon; I will burn your wagon; I took Craster's baby; Now he's dead, maybe;"
  • "My life's a zombie movie; Giants that are spooky; Me and my dead groupies; Coming for y'all's booty"
[Chorus]:
  • "Can't nobody tell me nothin'; You can't tell me nothin';"
  • "Can't nobody tell me nothin'; You can't tell me nothin';"
No one could stop the Night King and the White Walkers. Until he had met 'No One:' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuKqvE5Db2c&t=285s (4:45 - 5:05).
Back in season 1, Bran in the Night King had tried his best to warn young Bran, Rickon & Jojen about the existence of the seal hidden under the crypts of Winterfell (see "The Three-Eyed Crow," https://redd.it/8i9lzc & "The Last Hero’s Dry Ink," https://redd.it/bkzyrj ):
Unfortunately for our King, neither of them had managed to understand the significance of these dreams.
Which meant that someone else had to activate the seal buried under Winterfell. In s08e03, using the wights he had resurrected in the crypts, Bran/NK took matters into his own hands:
But, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpTZ-tC81yA, did the Night King really die this way?
SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott - “Power Is Power” Lyric Video Game Of Thrones (HBO), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTkxsPBTrnk&t=130s (2:10 - 2:54):
  • "Breathe, feel the air that I breathe (yeah); Air that I, air that I breathe (ooh)"
  • "Who's hotter? Been a monster with a crown? (ooh)" --> Question mark after "Been a monster with a crown," because is the Night King really a monster if it's Bran trying to help Man get rid of the White Walkers?
  • "So swamped by high water, keep your head up, you might drown (ooh);" with a shot of the creation of the Night King --> Bran drowning in his visions and ending up being stuck in the body of the Night King (i.e. the Andal Symeon Star-Eyes, a fabled knight from the Age of Heroes).
  • "In this world it's way colder, by the day, we count it down" --> Refers to the Night King being trapped in a prison of iron and ice in the Lands of Always Winter, for thousands of years. Patiently waiting for the day he would once again be free.
  • "Been around, just been waitin' up, she gon' come around" --> The Night King knew Dany and her Dragons would come North of the Wall at some point (since Bran remembers his past).
  • "I took a drag, bust it out the gates, my lil' baby slay; I wore the flag, put that on my face, ain't nobody safe."
  • "Lift the mask, they gon' have to see what they can't erase" --> You can't beat the Night King. Nothing erases him because his spirit is linked to the living body of young Bran. And as long as he lives, the Night King can't be defeated.
  • "I took a lot, so I took it back (do-do-do-do-do, yeah)," with a shot of Hodor holding the door --> Young Bran took Hodor's life and still ended up becoming the Night King. So Bran/NK took Hodor's life back in the "Hold The Door" episode, thus adding him to his army of wights.
  • "Danger's on my mind (ah)," with a shot of s07e06 Beyond The Wall episode --> The Night King did everything he could to set up a safe stage for Jon while getting his hands on Dany's weakest dragon in s07e06 (see "Beyond the Wall, A Stronger Plot Armor," https://redd.it/8i9lzc).
  • "Ain't no knife, dagger, bullet that can do it; For you, yeah you know, I go right up straight through it (yeah, yeah)" --> Nothing can kill the Night King.
So, did the Children of the Forest waste hundreds of years planning for the return of the Night King, without taking into consideration the one relic that could stop him? That is, the magical seal they had helped Bran the Builder forge in the first place (see "The War For The Dawn," https://redd.it/89pw94). Of course not. If the White Walkers were sleeping from s08e03 to s08e06, it was because the Children knew a better opportunity was on the horizon.
Thanks to Varys, King’s Landing was about to witness another massacre by fire: Daenerys and her dragon vs. essentially all of Westeros (see The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army [united against Dany], https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRXtQpw7X3k). This meant that Winterfell was going to be particularly vulnerable around that time. Which would create the perfect opportunity for the Children to free the Night King. Therefore unleashing the White Walkers on whoever was left alive after Dany was done deleting Aegon's troops. This series of events would propel civilians to jump on Euron's ships without a second thought.
On his end, Euron had seen this future unfold in his visions; which is why he wasn't worried about the White Walkers missing half of season 8.
Now, remember that White Walkers attack both men and Children without distinction. Which meant that freeing the Night King would likely result in a suicide mission.
Luckily for the Children, they didn't need to put their own lives at risk. Their faithful servants, the Faceless Men (see "Valar Morghulis -," https://redd.it/89pzdp), had already acquired an army of educated and influential minds, spread throughout the Seven Kingdoms: the Order of Maesters (see "A Candle of Corruption," https://redd.it/8do7v7). And thanks to Maester Luwin's dying efforts (see "The Weirwood Tree," https://redd.it/8do7v7), the Many-Faced God (= Children of Forest) knew to send another corrupted Maester to Winterfell: Maester Wolkan.
S07e05, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FibAyg3vO9A&t=7s (0:07 - 0:12): "I remember Wolkan. A bit timid but a sharp mind." - Archmaester Ebrose
Maester Wolkan first joined Winterfell in service of House Bolton. When the Boltons were defeated, he managed to retain his position, ending up serving House Stark. This suggested that Wolkan was very effective at his job. In s07e04, he even built a wheelchair for Bran, so our future Night King would move more easily : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnvGaQhL1RY&t=9s (0:09 - 0:20). All of this supported Ebrose's description of Maester Wolkan.
But in s07e05, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR7-x7Cyk5k&t=70s (1:10 - 1:43), this same Wolkan handed Littlefinger a letter incriminating Sansa Stark. Without first checking with the Lady of Winterfell if Baelish had been assigned to retrieve this item.
Which of course, he hadn't. Look at the way Sansa treats Littlefinger in season 7: s07e01, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GJx1uh1SGU&t=32s (0:32 - 1:27); & s07e03, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyXDXzGIKmw&t=83s (1:23 - 1:45). Baelish wasn't even the 10th person she would have trusted to recover such a compromising letter. And judging by the way she reacted to Arya confronting her with the evidence, s07e06, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id8fkJnlRgU&t=101s (1:41 - 4:26) & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8HxKka5jok (0:00 - 0:05), this note was the last thing she expected to see at that time.
This meant that either Wolkan was a fool, or he was a traitor. And given how much we had praised his sharp mind, there was only one option left: Wolkan was a corrupted Maester. Which explained why he would assist Littlefinger and a Faceless Woman without a second thought, conspicuously gifting a valuable letter to a potential foe.
Wolkan was the perfect candidate to wake the Night King from his Dream of Spring (s08e06, https://redd.it/bqw2aq ): a corrupted Maester living in Winterfell, whose allegiance to the God of Death was resolute.
Season 8 History and Lore - The South, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxVgf-EZDV4&t=137s (2:17 - 2:30): "My people have had enough. The dead are gone from the North. But the South [meaning Winterfell] is full of them. You just can't tell the difference [because they are sleeping]." - Tormund
Although the Faceless Men and the corrupted Maesters served the Children of the Forest, they didn’t know that. Both thought they were following the mighty will of the one true god, the God of Death. So when the Children/God of Death commanded Maester Wolkan to go under the crypts and release the seal holding the Night King, chances are Wolkan had no clue what would happen once he touched that seal. In fact, it is possible he wouldn’t even have known the artifact was a seal.
This is why Dan & Dave might present us this scene as Wolkan wandering around the crypts, then seemingly stumbling on a seal and releasing the Night King by accident. Which would lead to Wolkan’s genuine surprise and to his untimely death, killed by some wight.
The audience would think the Night King’s revival was the result of sheer bad luck. When in truth, it was the act of the Children of the Forest (through Maester Wolkan’s unknowing hands).
With the White Walkers back in the fold, the song goes on, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y45HRRaXdiM&t=84s (1:24 - 2:41):
[Refrain]:
  • "Yeah, I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad; I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more;"
  • "I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad; I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more"
The Night King will resume his journey on the Kingsroad (with wight Hodor by his side), on his way to the Isle of Faces.
[Verse 3]:
  • "Wall down, No crown," --> The Night King took down the Wall. And since Bran is stuck inside of him, he has no crown (meaning Bran was never crowned King in s08e06; it was all a dream).
  • "livin' like a maester:" --> Bran in the Night King spends his time looking at history through the Weirwood Net and can't father children; just like Maesters.
  • "Spent a lot of money on my brand new Kingsguard;" --> Reference to Pod's golden armor in Bran in the Night King's dream in episode 6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw2QDOzdkO8&t=232s (3:52 - 4:00).
  • "Baby's got a habit: Dragonglass and Dornish textiles; Ridin' down the High Road with my Melisandre smoke child;" --> Guess who Melisandre's smoke child is? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knq_7MfHO0o&t=97s (1:37 - 1:50); see chapter "And Then Some More."
  • "Got no oaths, I've been through all that;"
  • "I'm like a Faceless Man so I kick on back" --> Bran is hidden behind the mask of the Night King, a bit like Faceless Men hide behind real faces.
  • "Wish I could roll on back to that old Kingsroad;" --> Bran in the Night King wishes there was another way to end all this without having to kill (tens) of thousands. But there isn't.
  • "I wanna ride 'til I can't no more"
[Outro]:
  • "Yeah, I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad"
  • "I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more"
  • "I'm gonna take my horse to the old Kingsroad"
  • "I'm gonna ride 'til I can't no more"

The Last Storm

After being revived by Bloodraven at the end of s08e05, Euron hoped on Davos’s boat and got back to his flagship, Silence. Once there, he didn't tell the rest of the Iron Born he was still alive, which led to them heading back to the Iron Islands to follow Yara’s command. In the meantime, Cersei had lost the war & our pirate was declared dead, thus restoring the alliance between the Mother of Dragons and the Iron Born. Therefore preventing the Iron fleet from being fried on sight by Drogon.
At this stage, Yara & Dany were left in charge; which meant the realm would be relatively safe for months, until Aegon had showed up in King's Landing to contest the Mad Queen’s authority.
This is when Euron sailed away to Essos to meet with an old friend: his right arm, Daario Naharis.
With Varys preparing to fight the Mad Queen, the White Walkers expected to come back in the fold, and his 1,000 ships safe under Yara's lead, all that was left for Euron was to find a way to persuade Yara to bring his fleet back to King's Landing. So that when Blackfyre (Aegon) & Targaryen (Daenerys) would once again fight each other, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tb2zy57MgDA, Euron's ships would be there to organize the great evacuation. Which would allow our Drowned God to capitalize on the thunderstorm generated by Drogon and cast the Last Storm; sacrificing every man, woman and child carried by his navy in the process.
To this end, Euron had left his right arm in Meereen, on standby. Despite Daario having failed to stay by Dany's side in s06e10, Euron knew the sellsword would come in handy later on. Now that the time had come, he picked up Naharis, and sent him to Pyke, to convince his niece the Queen had ordered the Iron fleet back to King's Landing.
S08e01, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rguS34xXLY8&feature=youtu.be&t=173s (2:53 – 3:00): ”Daenerys will need somewhere to retreat if they can’t hold the North. Somewhere the dead can’t go.” - Yara
Daario explained to Yara that disturbing rumors had spread from the North, talks about White Walkers having re-emerged from Winterfell. Besides, her majesty had heard whispers of an army being assembled in the South (Aegon's). One that would defy her authority. Which is why their Queen had sent a person as trusted as Naharis to fetch the Iron fleet.
By the time King’s Landing realized the threat of the White Walkers, Dany & Aegon were already butchering each other. And Yara's fleet had arrived to carry as many frightened civilians as possible; picking up whoever was left alive, along with a mysterious hooded stranger. On their end, the people of King's Landing could either jump on Yara's ships and risk getting killed by the Ironborn, or stay on land and become White Walkers for certain. That is, if they were lucky enough not to have been fried by Drogon, or crushed by Aegon's elephants. The choice was no choice at all.
This chaos led to the sky falling on King's Landing. And amidst smoke and salt, a gargantuan thunderstorm was born from dragon fire. This is when Silence appeared from the dark, crushing Yara's ship and taking over the Iron fleet. Seizing the moment, Daario turned on Yara and disarmed her; leaving the Greyjoy at the mercy of her uncle.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3e7f9JvKqI (4:56 – 5:06), Yara: ”I’m going to find out who did this [to Balon]. I’m going to feed them to the sharks while they live. I swear it by the Salt Throne.”
Yara did promise she’d either feed Euron to the sharks or she would give up the Salt Throne. In the end, giving up the Salt Throne it was.
This was the opportunity Euron had dreamed about. With Dany preoccupied by Aegon's armies and Yara out of the picture, the time had come to summon the Last Storm: the one ritual that would see Euron re-emerge as the Drowned God, freed from his human prison of flesh; sacrificing ship after ship, while killing thousands and thousands in the process.

And Then Some More

With season 8 and the 'Euron is alive' theory, we had the equivalent of Jon Snow running wild on the side of the Children: Euron Greyjoy. A man that would be revived at will by Bloodraven, whenever he was in danger.
Which then raised the question: who could possibly get rid of Euron? Who could kill a God?
Yara had claimed she would feed the Ironborn to the sharks, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3e7f9JvKqI&t=296s (4:56 – 5:06), but realistically, she didn't stand a chance. Another contender would have been Dany, but after battling Aegon, she wouldn't have had any time or strength left to deal with Euron. Bran in the Night King was also a strong candidate, but he had already lost his undead dragon and was busy riding to the Isle of Faces. So who was left to help?
S08e03, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHYqEDdShkc&t=38s (0:38– 0:52): “The Lord of Light, we play his game for him. We fight his war and win. And then, he fucks off. No signs. No blessings.” - Davos Seaworth
The Lord of Light might not have sent any signs after the battle of Winterfell, but he never left the living. And while young Bran/Lord of Light couldn’t directly defeat Euron, there was something much more effective that he could do: send his champion to fight in his stead. That is, the Warrior of Light, Son of Fire & Lord’s Chosen, the o.g. Lord of Dragonstone, back from the freaking dead: Stannis of the House Baratheon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B1HzR138jk&t=3s
Ode to the Night King, Ringer Records, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y45HRRaXdiM&t=108s (1:48 - 1:52):
  • "Ridin' down the High Road with my Melisandre smoke child;" --> Stannis was Melisandre's smoke child: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knq_7MfHO0o&t=97s (1:37 - 1:50); revived by Bran in his Lord of Light days (hence Bran in the Night King singing about him). The Baratheon was riding south to put an end to Euron's plans.
Now, this is an epic conclusion. Stannis fueled by the powers of the Lord of Light, fighting Euron under the power of Bloodraven, on the board of Silence.
The Lord of Light might not have fooled Melisandre after all: Stannis was the Lord’s Chosen. The Mannis is the Son of Fire, reborn for one last purpose: to kill a God.
https://mashable.com/2017/03/23/stannis-baratheon-dead-game-of-thrones-season-5-script-confirms-death-scene/?europe=true, s05e10 (deleted dialogue):
  • Brienne: “Do you have any last words?” [Stannis considers.]
  • Stannis: “Do you believe in the life to come?” [Brienne nods.]
  • Stannis: “I don't. But if I’m wrong, and you're right... tell Renly I'm sorry when you get there. I don't imagine I'll see him wherever I'm going.”
Stannis was right. There was no life to come for him. Not yet. Not this soon.
S04e03, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZWZrmvvVTo&t=96s (1:36 - 1:40): "I will not become a page in someone else's history book." - King Stannis
And while Brienne did confirm she killed Stannis in the show, as long as she hadn’t cut off his head (see Stannis's death picture: https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-public/thumbnails/image/2017/03/24/11/game-of-thrones-stannis.jpg?w968h681), the Lord of Light could have easily revived him. HBO did warn us after all: "I’m urging you to re-watch Season 5 of #GameOfThrones for the finale alone." And when did Stannis die? In s05e10.
Stannis was the first man to fight: s05e10, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-2E4ByWEZs&t=169s (2:49 - 4:03); and the last man standing, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-2E4ByWEZs&t=269s (4:29 - 5:29). Did you really think death would stop the Mannis?
Besides, Stephen Dillane (Stannis) originated the trend of dead characters that were really still alive bashing the show: https://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-03-16/stephen-dillane-on-playing-stannis-baratheon-in-game-of-thrones-money-is-the-main-thing-i-got-out-of-it/ : “Money is the main thing I got out of [playing Stannis].” Conleth (Varys), Lena (Cersei), and Pilou (Euron) merely followed in his footsteps.
It turns out Dan wasn’t kidding on 60 minutes, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7febtALCX7k&list=PLI1yx5Z0Lrv5ppTWoqkNx_7N3yqDC4rwx&index=13&t=36s (0:36 - 0:41):
  • Anderson Cooper, talking about the ending: "People will die."
  • Dan Weiss: "No, actually, that's the big twist. [...]"
Weiss was right. Almost no one died in season 8. And if they have managed to produce this ending, we’re in for something truly special with these last few episodes.
Soon after, young Bran connected to the Weirwood Heart tree at the center of the Isle of Faces. Thus beginning his journey through the past. Which meant this was as far as Bran, Bloodraven, the TER and the Children's ability to see into the future went. Because at this very moment, Bran in our present had realized all hope was lost and had decided to journey through time in search of other solutions (see "Bloodraven's Dying Gift -," https://redd.it/8i9lzc); playing the role of the Lord of Light in the process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAg6IZc_uuU&t=212s [3:32 - 3:42]).

Even Slaves Have a Choice

The Lord of Light might have sent his hero to save the day, but so did the Children of the Forest. And if young Bran/Lord of Light knew about Euron becoming a threat, so did the Children about Stannis challenging their champion. Which is why they had forwarded Euron every vision he would need to defeat the Baratheon.
After a gruesome fight, Stannis was losing. The Greyjoy had the upper hand. Innocent civilians were drowning while the Last Storm was being cast. Meanwhile, on the continent: Drogon had butchered Aegon and his armies; Jon had been murdered; and now, even Stannis was on the brink of defeat. The only two people left were Daenerys and Euron.
S07e07, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts7rLk-OExE&t=109s (1:00 - 1:10): "When Winter is over, we'll be the only ones left alive." - Euron to Dany
George R. R. Martin: "I do not like labels. All my characters have suffered, each in their own way. [...] All are not important as long as they remain alive among my pages, and they will have the same opportunity to prove their worth."
Witnessing this carnage, Daario reminded himself this was the closest he would ever be from bringing his beloved back to the living. This was the day he had dreamed about for so many years: the day the Drowned God would finally grant him his wish.
To this end, Daario had no choice but to convince himself there was no shame. Like he had told Daenerys in s05e07, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3HTDuYpukE&t=3030s (50:30 - 50:36): "All rulers are either butchers or meat." Whether he was there or not, surely, these people would have ended up slaughtering each other at some point, just like Dany & Aegon had done in King's Landing. There was simply no choice.
S05e07, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3HTDuYpukE&t=2950s (49:10 - 49:16): "Everyone has a choice. Even slaves have a choice [...]" - Daario Naharis
Seeing ship after ship sink, while entire families drowned, Daario remembered what it felt like to have his beloved being taken from him. In this moment, he realized what he had sunken to: letting countless families be separated from their loved ones, so he would have a chance at indulging his own desires.
Waking up from the veil of love that had blurred his mind for so many years, Naharis opened his eyes to the atrocities happening in front of him: U2 - Love is blindness (from D&D's playlist), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjOLHWt-KRI
S03e08, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3HTDuYpukE&t=546s (9:06 – 9:11): "I am Daario Naharis. I always have a choice."
In a split second, Daario grabbed his dagger and turned on his god, stabbing Euron right through the heart (while he was engaged with Stannis). To make sure the Drowned God would never revive, he then knocked his head off as far as he could: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYVWyBB3dto&t=266s (4:26 - 4:32).
The Doors - The End (from D&D's playlist): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo7l_iO3_Tg (0:01 - 6:47)
With Daario's help, Stannis had completed the mission the Lord had been keeping him on this earth for: stop Euron Greyjoy from casting the Hammer of the Waters. And after the Night King had killed young Bran (see "The Last Hero," https://redd.it/8i9lzc), the Baratheon would finally be released from the bond connecting his body to the Weirwood Net, free to join his daughter in the afterlife: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRRfi3yOT8g (X Ambassadors & Jacob Banks - Baptize Me, For The Throne album).
With Euron gone, so was the ritual casting the Hammer of the Waters. Which resulted in a giant wave wiping out Silence, Stannis's body and poor Daario Naharis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erV3jIaxVbc&t=112s (1:52 - 1:58).

Reborn For Greatness

As per Daenerys? The smoke and salt Euron and her dragon had brought to King's Landing had allowed Azor Ahai to be reborn. And now, she would have to deal with the prophesied hero and his legendary weapon, Lightbringer: see https://redd.it/89pw94, "King's Landing in Flames;" & https://redd.it/8i9lzc, "A Martinesque Ending."
Papa Roach - Born For Greatness, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8i8uLP71U8Q (from D&D's end game playlist, https://www.reddit.com/freefolk/comments/bb9r11/dds_got_spotify_playlist_of_songs_containing_the/) :
[Verse 1]:
  • "I am a man at war," --> Petyr Baelish is at war with the Great Other, i.e. the Faceless Men & the Corrupted Maesters, under the shadow of the Children of the Forest.
  • "And I am fighting for; All of the broken people; All of the people thrown overboard;" --> Hence the Mockingbird sigil, "Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us .” - Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird.
  • "They always tried to shame us;" --> Nicknaming him Littlefinger.
  • "But they don’t speak the language;" --> No one in Westeros realized both Faceless Men and corrupted Maesters were communicating with each other, while having set their nest in King's Landing. No one except Petyr.
  • "No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless; We were born for greatness;" --> Petyr is not a faceless man. And he is striving for greatness, i.e. the Iron Throne.
  • "Oh, somebody sound the alarm; Oh, a fire was set in the dark;" --> Varys setting King's Landing on fire to sit Aegon on the throne.
  • "Oh, It’s time that you know; No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless; We were born for greatness;"
[Chorus]:
  • "It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad;" --> Reference to Varys drugging Dany into madness, while turning both Tyrion and John into fools; with some help from various drugs.
  • "If we just hold on, if just hold on yeah;" --> Petyr is the rock that will not sway from his path, no matter the circumstances (Peter means "stone" in ancient Greek: Πετρος [Petros]).
  • "The sky is falling and the world has gone mad;" --> The sky is falling due to Drogon breathing so much fire on King's Landing that he has created a massive thunderstorm. Dany has gone mad from Varys's drugs. And Aegon is leading his troops to certain death without realizing it, blindly following Varys's advice.
  • "And we sing our songs, and we just hold on yeah;" --> Petyr holds on and keeps singing his songs, hence the Mockingbird sigil.
  • "So if you’re running, stop running; One life, one chance, start living;" --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxhI0KqNNTw&t=111s (1:51 - 2:18).
  • "Sing it louder just to let the world know;"
  • "No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless, We were born for greatness;"
  • "We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless, We were born for greatness"
[Verse 2]:
  • "They say that I’m reckless, Because I’m relentless;" --> Petyr will not sway from his path no matter the circumstances. He will put his life at risk to help mankind.
  • "They spit on my face, and curse on my name;" --> See most Littlefinger scenes.
  • "They’re taking my life in vengeance;" --> Sansa and Arya taking Littlefinger's life in vengeance, s07e07.
  • "Yeah you can try and blame us;" --> Like most people blame Littlefinger.
  • "And try to take what’s sacred;"
  • "But we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless, We were born for greatness;"
  • "Oh, somebody sound the alarm; Oh, a fire was set in the dark;
  • "Oh, It’s time that you know; No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless; We were born for greatness;"
The Amazons - Mother: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmTNAHw-z1w (from D&D's end game playlist):
[Verse 1]:
  • "Friends wanna kill me; But I give them all my loving anyway;" --> Sansa and Co. wanting to kill Petyr in season 7. But the Mockingbird doesn't hold a grudge against them. He still gives them all his loving anyway.
  • "If God won't forgive me; I'm not the only one to make amends;" --> If God won't forgive the crimes Petyr committed to protect mankind, then god won't forgive many people (e.g. Sansa for executing a man without a fair trial under her own roof, etc).
[Chorus]:
  • "Mother, it's not in my hands;" --> Not every action Littlefinger did was in his hands. Some were dictated by the Faceless Men, others by the corrupted Maesters. Both stronger parties, to which he had to obey. At first.
  • "Try to understand it's only 'cause I can;"
  • "Fools believe they can erase; All that they've done wrong; But I don't wanna be their son;" --> Petyr isn't afraid to put his hands in the dirt for the greater good. Even if it means doing some things that are wrong. If it is to protect mankind, Petyr isn't afraid to stain his name. Whereas some people believe things are either Black or White. Unfortunately, real life is rarely that simple.
  • "Mother; Mother;"
[Verse 2]:
  • "She's trying to judge me;" --> Referring to Sansa in s07e07.
  • "But I can see the sins that stain your smile;" --> Even Sansa isn't as innocent as she'd like to think.
  • "Friends say I gotta see reason;" --> Faceless Women telling Petyr that his time is up in s07e05.
  • "But I'm crawling out of the city;" --> Which is what he does by running out of Winterfell.
  • "I'm tired of bowing to preachers all the time;" --> Petyr has stopped following the Faceless Men & the Corrupted Maesters' orders. The devil Baelish has turned on them.
[Bridge]:
  • "Friends say I gotta see reason; I'm crawling out of the city; I'm tired of bowing to preachers;"
  • "Can't fight, so be a believer;" --> Referring to Petyr having had to work with the cult of the Faceless Men and the corrupted Maesters, since he wasn't powerful enough to do anything about it, in the beginning. Until he had gathered enough knowledge: "Knowledge is Power" (see https://redd.it/8do7v7 & https://redd.it/8do8by).
Bonus Theory:
  • The Waif from s06e07 & e08 wasn't a real character, only a product of Arya's imagination (credit to EternalScratches for this theory): see Slayer-Dead Skin Mask, from D&D's end game playlist, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evnEW4lFVec). Which isn't to say the Waif from earlier episodes was not real.

Continued from Part 4
Bernie's Master Plan for 2020The Prominent Players & Their Roles - Part 5, 1st Half
My Introduction to WayOfTheBern. My Political History AKA My Journey to The Revolution. [Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11] Now here's ONE MORE of The Prominent Elected Players in Bernie's Master Plan & Their Roles within it. A Big One. So big in fact that she breaks Part 5 into 2 Halves because of Reddit's space limits. Enjoy!
Part 5, 1st Half covers Alexandria's role as Bernie's Shadow. Link to Part 5, 2nd Half covering Alexandria's role as The Leader of The Squad.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez = Bernie's Shadow & The Leader of The Squad► Where do we BEGIN with the Phenomenon now known as AOC? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from The Bronx, New York City was once upon a time merely one of many young Bernie Sanders supporters during his BREAKTHROUGH 2016 Presidential campaign. She was a graduate of Boston University (cum laude!) who was committed to uplifting & revitalizing her home community in the Bronx. By returning home after college, she wanted to end the Brain Drain that removes stellar people from their communities when they sought work elsewhere. So she created a publishing house called Brook Avenue Press intended to educate children & showcase The Bronx in a positive light. Her commitment to The Bronx comes from her father & his side of the family, Puerto Ricans who had roots in the Bronx going back 3 generations. But the systematic neglect of the region filled with Browns & Blacks had Alexandria's mother & father seek better educational opportunities so Alexandria & her brother could live up to their fullest potential. With help from extended family, Alexandria's family moved to the suburbs of Yorktown Heights.
It was here that Alexandria found herself seeing the Twilight of two worlds with the better opportunities of Yorktown Heights vs. the systematic abandonment her extended family still experienced back home in The Bronx. Not to mention the race & class disparities of the 2 regions with Brown Boricua Alexandria out of place in Yorktown Heights filled with Middle to Upper Class Whites vs. but at home with her people in the Bronx surrounded with Working Class Browns & Blacks (Did they REALLY call Alexandria a Mexican over there in Yorktown? sigh). This Twilight lit a fire in her that spurred this Science Nerd to excel in school (with literal asteroid named after her through high school science project) & one day return to The Bronx as one of its Champions. But after her architect father died in 2008, the family eventually lost the ability to maintain their home in Yorktown Heights due to the housing market crash & difficulties with the probate courts (her father didn't leave a will). This ended up leaving Alexandria working as a waitress & bartender alongside her work in non-profit organizations. She eventually got molasses-stuck in her plan to be a Bronx Champion after Brook Avenue Press failed & wondered if she squandered her potential.
Then Bernie Sanders came along & rejuvenated her passion & hope with his Political Revolution setting her on a course that would change her life forever.
Alexandria's entry to The Bernie Movement in 2015 as one of his supporters went to the next level when she was not allowed to vote for him in the April 2016 New York primary due to some nonsense with the Voter Registration. This stirred her to get DIRECTLY involved as an avid Organizer to his campaign as he valiantly fought off the skullduggery of opponent Hillary Rodham Clinton & the DNC, the Democratic National Committee. After Hillary received her karma by way of Trump on Election Night 2016, Alexandria wanted to get involved someway somehow wherever she could. So she goes cross-country with friends to a pipeline protest at Standing Rock Reservation in frostbite-cold North Dakota. The event was spiritually transformative for her & as soon as she prepared to head home, she suddenly gets a call from a Bernie Movement-derived organization named Brand New Congress: "Do You Want To Run For Congress?" Recognizing how molasses-stuck she was working at the bar & feeling like she had nothing left to lose, she decided to run against all odds.
Bernie Sanders' 2016 call for "young people to get involved in the political process" was not lost on Alexandria as she worked as bartendewaitress by day, U.S. Congressional candidate by night. Brand New Congress merged with similar Bernie Movement-derived organization Justice Democrats as she waged her unlikely underdog campaign against THE FORMIDABLE King of Queens, Joe Crowley—the 4th highest-ranking member of Democratic Party Leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. A year later on June 26, 2018, THE IMPOSSIBLE: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez LANDSLIDED Joe Crowley by 15 points to even HER OWN surprise! The long-range plan Bernie & NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio put together for New York/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/60202005/GettyImages_984862810.0.jpg) worked & a STAR was born.
Ever since that IMPOSSIBLE upset, AOC has been a KEYSTONE for The Revolution quickly rising to THE VERY TOP of importance within The Movement. Instantly, her Star Power, Political Talent, & All-Around Innovation made her one of THE KEY Players to bring The Revolution to Victory. Her constantly rising profile online & offline gives her an ever-increasing Mass Following that has taken the world by storm in such a short time. Because of this, Young Alexandria, the Youngest Woman Ever Elected to U.S. Congress at age 29 & The Baby of The House, is trusted with MASSIVE responsibility resulting in the TWO Roles she plays in Bernie's Master Plan. The 1st one being Bernie's Shadow & the 2nd one being The Leader of The Squad.

Bernie's Shadow
As Bernie's Shadow, Alexandria serves as THE JUNIOR CHIEF of the entire Revolution. The Little Chief behind The Big Chief, Bernie. Similar to Bernie The Chief, Alexandria helps carry the entire Movement on her back. She is ALSO responsible for all the players within it. If she fails, they fail. If she succeeds, they succeed. So just like Bernie, Junior Chief Alexandria has to be more careful in taking a position than others. While she will always push towards "The Left" whenever possible, she takes on stances that have mass consensus & approval or can build into mass consensus & approval. It's easier to get people on board with the Green New Deal than to go out on a limb challenging AIPAC. Unlike Bernie The Chief, AOC's role as The Junior Chief DOES NOT make her the Centerpoint all other players connect to. Nevertheless, protégé AOC functions much like a Double Bernie/Second Bernie in every other way which is why she is called Bernie's Shadow. I mean, just LOOK at these two! ¡SIMPÁTICO!
Being The Junior Chief, Alexandria is the SECONDARY MESSENGER of The Movement. What she says ALSO becomes emblematic of The Movement's purpose & agenda. And being The Junior Chief, Alexandria is the CO-LEAD BEACON to attract people to The Movement. She is ALSO the mascot as well as the secondary representative to get folks on board. See, for those who can't quite accept the gruff grumpy grandpa with the Brooklyn accent & a heart of gold......there's a cheerful cutie-pie Bronx Boricua with the razzle-dazzle, sass & sizzle to draw in what grandpa cannot. Whether drawn in by The Chief Bernie or The Junior Chief AOC, the goal remains the same. It's all about building THE largest energized Mass of People to overcome any obstacle, any rigging, any sabotage put forth by The Established Order. That's the KEY to the Master Plan's success.
But there's more to AOC's role as Bernie's Shadow than functioning as a Junior version of Bernie as Chief. AOC ALSO becomes a RACE SHAPER in the 2020 Presidential Election... ...both in the Democratic Primaries AND the General Election. The Double Bernie effect between Bernie & AOC as Chief & Junior Chief changes when Bernie & AOC are together vs. when Bernie & AOC are apart. When paired together, you get a BOOST Effect that exponentializes the impact of actions Bernie or AOC would have alone. Powerful solo. MEGA-Powerful together. When separated apart, AOC builds Her OWN Power in Her OWN Right essentially coming out of "Bernie's shadow" so to speak. In his shadow, when together. Building her own power, when solo.
AOC weaves in & out between twinning with Bernie & going solo from Bernie at strategic times in order to shape the outcome of the 2020 Race. You saw it firsthand when AOC separated & hung out with Elizabeth Warren talking about Game of Thrones...AND when AOC united with Bernie to say "No Middle Ground!" & "Too Much For Me!" to Joe Biden at the/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/64694797/1148957129.jpg.0.jpg) end of the Green New Deal Tour. AOC THEN sat in some secret hidden room with Bernie to talk about Usury & Postal Banking hitting Credit Card Biden where it hurts most. She acts as a LURE when apart drawing in clout-chasing candidates trying to get the rub from of her Rapid-Fire Rise. See Elizabeth Warren & Kamala Harris. She acts as a HAMMER when together crushing the prospects of contrary candidates with her Rapid-Rising Power. See Joe Biden & Elizabeth Warren. She dangles her Endorsement Power over the Democratic Field forcing candidates to seek it or oppose it then makes her moves to control or squash Bernie's opponents before she permanently joins Bernie for the Ultimate BOOST Effect. It's like "Wonder Twins Powers Activate!" or DragonBall Z's "Fusion HA!" Bernie & AOC then begin a perpetual mutual elevation that guarantees each other wins their individual races. Bernie for Prez, AOC for 2nd term as Rep. THIS is why Alexandria played coy & withheld her endorsement for Bernie for so long. You like the results?

This week only (I won’t make a habit of self-promoting) I have a small request. If you appreciate this list, I am asking you to visit the Shop Small in Dallas page on my website.
My website is not monetized in any way - no ads, no affiliate links, no pop-ups, no asks for your email, and nothing that makes your clicks worth anything except a smile from me, and perhaps some gratitude from local Dallas stores if they pick up new customers. The Other links to things to do section is (and will be going forward) located at the bottom of this post. Thank you!

2019.11.11 20:50 kentuckyfriedbuddha THE BLACK CROWES present SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER 2020 WORLD TOUR

THE BLACK CROWES present SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER 2020 WORLD TOUR
https://preview.redd.it/qpqgq0x634y31.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2230a55550996fa572934c06226fa15313933df5
The Black Crowes' Chris and Rich Robinson will herald the thirty-year anniversary of their landmark quintuple platinum debut album Shake Your Money Maker with a world tour beginning June 17 in Austin, Texas. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now. To celebrate the announce, the band will play two intimate shows, first at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City this evening, followed by the Troubadour in Los Angeles on November 14. More info about tickets will be shared on @theblackcrowes Instagram page. The Black Crowes, which Melody Maker proclaimed as "the most Rock n' Roll Rock n' Roll band in the world" will be playing their debut, described by Rolling Stone as, "a guitar-party cracker that marries Southern R&B crunch and Anglo cock-strutting attitude" in its entirety plus all the hits from the band's illustrious catalogue. The ever-volatile Robinson brothers have not played a show since 2013 when they vowed never to play or speak together again. Thankfully for fans, times seems to have healed these wounds.
Chris Robinson says of reuniting, "I'm thrilled & blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we've made & bringing our lives together full circle. Long live Rock n' Roll & The Black Crowes!"
Rich Robinson adds, "First and foremost, I'm really happy to have my brother back in my life. To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids, is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could've never fathomed."
In 1990, when journalists were lamenting the death of rock, as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, Atlanta's Black Crowes gave the genre a swift and much needed kick in the ass with Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles "Jealous Again", "Twice As Hard", "She Talks To Angels", and the rollicking cover of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle" the band immediately took the rock world by storm, topping Rolling Stone's "Best New American Band Readers Poll" in late 1990.
The Black Crowes went on to release eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way; they sold out shows around the world; had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member; got kicked off a tour with ZZ Top for insulting the sponsor; got screwed by bad record deals; got married and divorced, fought amongst themselves and the rest of the world; in other words they've done everything a legendary rock group should do. 2020's reunion and tour produced by Live Nation is sure to further cement the band's legacy as one of the best and most loved rock bands of all time.
