Babylon's Burning


Well, California wildfires are back in the news, this time in the south. Because these fires are striking at a major nerve center, so to speak, they seem to be getting a lot more attention in the news. And because of this we're getting a flood of truly terrifying images, film and video. 

Terrifying and apocalyptic. Is 2017 working up to a Hollywood climax?





I mean, if you're looking for straight-up, End of Days apocalyptic imagery, there it is.




The fires are being fed by the Santa (In)Ana winds, named for the mother of the Virgin Mary. Their scope and intensity is said to be downright Biblical and firefighters are struggling to even begin to contain them.

The City of Angels is ablaze: in the end, how could it be any other way? 


We have family that lost their home in the Santa Rosa fires, but they were luckier than the 44 people who lost their lives. That "All-Important" 44 again. It's like a bad penny-penny.


And all too fitting for 2017, the flames are descending on Getty Center, the complex containing the artwork of the famous oil magnate and current focus of a new feature film featuring Braintree's own Mark Wahlberg.


And until quite recently, Kevin "Little" Spacey. He is being replaced by veteran star Christopher Plummer, a gray eminence who will spare movie-goers of Spacey's spectacularly horrid makeup job. 

The film is directed by Ridley Scott, who brought us Alien:Covenant this year and is launching a series on Jack "Antichrist" Parsons called Strange Angel. Timely.

We might be seeing plenty of strange angels in the days to come.


Also quite timely is the Getty's new exhibit on Medieval manuscripts. Here we see David and his lyre, which brings us back to those strange angels from Vega in Lyra, aka "King David's Harp."


INVOCATION 



The Getty-Scott-Parsons connection is particularly interesting in that J. Paul Getty Jr. financed Invocation of My Demon Brother and Lucifer Rising, along with the CIA's Ford Foundation. 

Do also note that Jean Cocteau of Beauty and the Beast fame, who had just made the Lyra-resonant Orpheus film, became a friend and supporter of Anger's work as well. 

Also note the Vegas superimposed on that photo of Anger there. Gustave Dore does it every time.

The influence Cocteau had on Anger's filmmaking is impossible to overstate. As is Cocteau and Anger's influence on music video and MTV. 

But there's been another Getty in the spotlight this year, hasn't there?


And that's J.Paul Getty's great-grandson Balthazar, who played a very Dennis Hopper-like drug dealer in Twin Peaks: The Return

Which of course brings us back to Elizabeth Fraser --which everything eventually does-- and that's through Getty's starring role in the music video for "Song of the Siren" that David Lynch embedded within Lost Highway for no perceptible reason.



And here's a little screencap from the sequence.

Starting to get the picture now? Do you think I'd go so far out on a limb with this thing if it didn't keep coming up aces? Don't ask me to explain it. The world is a very strange place.

Note also that Lost Highway featured the acting debut of Satanist Marilyn Manson, who's been in the news quite a bit lately. Why is anyone's guess. I suppose it has something to do with the apocalyptic mood that is being ratcheted up in the media. 


DEMONS OF THE AIR


Speaking of which, I couldn't help but notice that Bel Air is in the line of fire, quite literally. The exclusive enclave is finding out that infernos don't really care how rich you are, only that you're inflammable. 

Something we see in the Book of Revelation, which seems inspired by a volcano eruption, quite possibly the eruption at Pompeii and Herculanum:



Let's not forget earthquakes. There was one in Southern California earlier tonight, because they don't have enough problems already.


Bel Air also seems to fit into the overarching narrative we're seeing: Bel means "ruler," as in "ruler of the kingdom of the air." How exactly it fits-- and why-- is still a very open question. 


LET'S ALL GO TO THE FIRE DANCES



And speaking of fires, note that a different Bel is the patron god of the Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh, which is now expanding into the Samhuinn Fire Festival. 


But Beltane seems to making a major comeback all over Britain. Yeah, there's a comforting image for you. How long before they start putting people in those things? I'd reckon within the next decade.

I love The Wicker Man as much as anyone but I'm not sure I'm ready for the real thing.


FIRE FROM THE HEAVENS



I guess Fireball Season came early to Tampa, because shit was falling from the sky all over the place. 

Of course, "Fireball Season" is a total lie created a few years back to cover for flaming crap falling at sub-meteorite speeds that no one can seem to explain.


And then there's the star falling from Heaven, burning as if it were a lamp (ASTEROID!!!!). The asteroid Phaeton 3200- which they named it so because "Lucifer Babylon" was a bit louche-- is scheduled to give Earth a little trim on the 17th. 


I'm not liking the numbers here, but let's hope for the best.


But let's not forget that Phaethon is also associated with Cygnus, the Swan, which our astronomers seem particularly fascinated by. 

As does Donald Trump, who's perched atop Cygnus like Draco, the Dragon. Or King Cepheus. Or both.

"King Dragon."

Huh. Is he trying to tell us something here?


"FIRE WITH NO END IN SIGHT"



If so then what do you make of Trump announcing the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That seems a bit, I don't know, audacious?


And Muslims don't seem too overjoyed either, with the Palestinian Authority accusing Trump of playing with fire. Interesting day to say so.


Keep an eye out for fire symbolism--and actual fire-- in the reaction to this move.



Which may be the intended effect.


I can't help but wonder if this is part of an upcoming season of the Apocalypse Reality Show, where the new US Embassy will be the de facto Third Temple. Keep an eye out for Babylonian influences in the design for the new building, something we've been seeing quite a lot of recently. 

I'd say that was a gimme at this point.


LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE


You won't need to be an SJW to sniff out the prophetic implications here. The far-left New York Daily News seems presold on the Antichrist idea.  But is the Pope-pot calling the kettle black here?


Francis- the last in the line if you believe Saint Malachy-- isn't too happy over this latest move either. But I'm struck by the use of "wisdom and prudence," in light of the Sophia symbolism out there.

Is the Pope a 4-9er? 

Since Prudent is a given name that became an adjective is he inviting us to see "wisdom" the same way? The possibilities are tantalizing. 


But given the fact that so many people think Francis is the Antichrist, maybe it's a clever bit of deflection. A way to take the focus off his own diabolism. 


Or maybe Trump is the Antichrist and Francis is the False Prophet? There are too many choices these days. Note here that Franny is flashing the OK gesture, which Trump loves to do as well. 

Is it a secret 666 like you hear told so often these days, or is it just that the Pope is Italian and Trump is from Queens?

I guess we'll find out soon enough.




Speaking of lakes of fire. Read in your best Dr. Evil voice.


BURNED AT THE STAKE


Speaking of the Poor Knights of the Temple of Jerusalem, they're the stars of a new series debuting on History tonight. Will we see DeMolay et al burned at the stake? Probably.

You really gotta love the timing. Meticulous.


I should probably mention that the Archangels are the Knights of Heaven. And we saw an occultation of Aldebaran-- called the "Torch" and associated with Michel-- during the other night's Supermoon.


And of course this story broke this week as well. According to The Intercept Trump is assembling his own intelligence agency, intended to override the CIA. At the head of this project are Lt Col Oliver North of Iran-Contra fame and Blackwater's Erik Prince.


Prince being the best-known Templar of our times. If any of this is true, look for things to get very, very hairy, because these are not men famous for their reasoned moderation. 

Maybe it is the Apocalypse after all.


And in a all-too-fitting bit of highly-charged symbology, we hear now that Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi is being moved to the Louvre's new franchise outlet in Abu Dhabi. From the Pyramid to the Dome. 


IGNITE THE LIGHT

In the last post we looked at the horrific deaths at the gate of the Gate of Heaven cemetery in Valhalla ("Hall of the Slain"), and the sickening symbolic links it had to Katy Perry's Super Bowl appearance, where she literally entered the stadium as the Whore of Babylon, greeted by a sea of orange orbs. 

Some readers pointed out some trenchant details in the narrative, such as the fact that the train- its head car numbered 4333- hit the 49 year-old Ellen Brody as it was going 49 MPH.


Another reader pointed out Brody's maiden name, Schaeffer.


Schaeffer being the original name of the stadium in which Super Bowl 49 champions once played.


Which began construction on September 23.


I should also point out that Perry's final number at Super Bowl 49 was "Firework"-- as in "Baby, you're a firework." The bit where she flew around as a binary star.

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you


'Cause there's a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July
'Cause baby you're a firework


And the meaning of the name of the woman who was literally incinerated alive at "the Gate of Heaven" in the "Hall of the Slain?"


A firework, alright.



Brody worked at Bill and Hillary Clinton's favorite jewelry store, ICD. They created the charm bracelet that Hillary liked to show off on the campaign trail.


Perry was also closely connected to the Clintons, having acted as a very prominent supporter and surrogate for Hillary's campaign. "Roar" and "Firework" were popular at campaign events.


"Roar" being the big Whore song, where Perry played Mystery Babalon the Great (or April Bell, if you want to be slightly more current) at the Super Bowl. 


A song Hillary herself chose to be her theme song.


And used for her closing advertising. 

The Antichrist and the Whore of Babylon. And you wonder why I didn't vote?



Katy is doing a different take on the Scarlet Woman more recently.

THE FORTY-NINE ANGELS



So realizing all of this, let's look at the 49er a bit more closely. The moribund old media are crawling over one another to heap praise on him-- and certainly no one skeptical of state power (or who's watched those sickening compilations of unarmed citizens being gunned down with absolutely no provocation) can argue with his professed motivations-- but knowing the N-ph-L the way I do I can't help but wonder about it all.



All the more in light of this manufactured controversy, when right-wing talk show host Tomi Lahren tore into the Queen of All Media Rituals BeyoncIsis for handing the 4-9er his sacred crystal phallus on behalf of Sports Illustrated.


You see, that got me to thinking about Super Bowl 50, when BeyoncIsis appeared with Chris  Martin (literally "Martian") of Coldplay and Bruno Mars, singing in front of this weird symbol...


...which The Sync Book's Alan Green likened to this symbol...


...of the Martian locust-gods who rise from the titular pit in Quatermass and the Pit. A bit of sacred geometry that Quatermass likens to a "Kabbalist" sign, somewhat erroneously. Or is it?

THE EQUATION OF TIME


The day the 4-9er began his protest is rather significant as well- it was the date of the rare "Equation of Time" phenomenon. There was also a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse.

Now, I'm not going to quarrel with the ostensible reason for these protests but in light of everything we're seeing everywhere-- especially in the N-ph-L, I feel obliged to point something out. 


And that's that the kneeling protests....


...are essentially identical to pre-and post-game prayers. Same exact poses- on one knee, arms joined.


So you do have to wonder, has Kaepernick's original protest- where he stayed sitting on the bench-- been appropriated for some other agenda, something no one is actually talking about?



I mean, the evidence is right there. Go look for yourself in case you think I'm cherry-picking. Are the N-ph-L'ers actually being manipulated into praying-- or at least appear to be praying-- for some entirely unspoken purpose? Or is that even a question?


Oh, I know- I'm just flying off the handle with irresponsible speculation. But who is actually the author of the kneeling protest? 

Hint: it's not Colin Kaepernick.


It's a former football player with an extensive background in military intelligence. And Hollywood


I mean, did you actually expect anything else? 


POSTSCRIPT: VULCAN'S RING


The eclipse the night that the kneeling protest began saw a "Ring of Fire" eclipse, another one of these terms that astronomers seem to be pulling out of their asses recently.


But it does turn our attention to the situation in Bali, which could still get rather apocalyptic. We also recently saw a story in which Eleven- aka Millie Bobbie Brown-- was trapped on the island, though that could be entirely ritual in nature. The fact the felt obliged to mention that she flew on Virgo Airlines might bear that out.

Or maybe it's a bit of foreshadowing of her future playing the Volcano Girl.



The Onion nails it.



As does the late, lamented Malcolm Owen.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention Tracy Twyman's piece on September 23 and the Kneeling ritual of Freemasonry. Do give it a read.
