CNN Fake News Loses It Over Trump-Putin Presser, Forgets American History

Fake news pedophile Cooper freaks at successful Summit outcome

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper did not think Monday’s news conference in Helsinki, Finland, between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump went well, calling it “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American leader.”


Deep state fail: CNN fake news pedo comes unglued
"You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly than I've ever seen — an extraordinary press conference," Cooper said. Rather than reporting on what occurred, the anchor instead jumped into his own speculation moments after the press conference ended. During the press conference, Trump reiterated his claim that there was "no collusion" between Moscow and the president's 2016 campaign and impugned Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe as a "disaster for our country."


"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous what's going on with the probe," Trump said.

Reviewing the history of disgraceful actions on the part of American leaders, several Twitter users noted that it just might be possible that holding a press conference with a foreign head of state is not the most horrific thing an American president can do.




Chuck Todd was nearly as quick as Cooper to decry the news conference.

​Many liberals have said the news conference was evidence of "treason," though it's difficult to see how two leaders meeting and holding a press conference — doing their jobs — could be construed as evidence of treason in any sense of the word.




Speaking about the US-Russia relationship, Trump said, "Our relationship has never been worse than it is now. However, that changed as of about four hours ago. Nothing would be easier politically than to refuse to meet, to refuse to engage, but that would not accomplish anything. As president, I cannot make decisions on foreign policy in a futile effort to appease partisan critics or the media or Democrats who want to do nothing but resist and obstruct."




​Putin also dismissed the allegations of collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, saying, "It's difficult to imagine an utter nonsense of a bigger scale than this."

Indonesian Villagers Kill Nearly 300 Crocodiles In Revenge For Death

SORONG, Indonesia

Indonesian villagers armed with knives, hammers and clubs slaughtered 292 crocodiles in revenge for the death of a man killed by a crocodile at a breeding farm, an official said.


The incident happened Saturday following the funeral of the 48-year-old man who was killed after he entered an enclosure while looking for grass to feed his livestock, police and conservation officials said.

The man's family and "hundreds" of other locals, angry over the farm's location near a residential area, marched to the police station where they were told the breeder would pay compensation, he added. 



But the villagers were not satisfied and headed to the crocodile farm armed with clubs, knives, machetes and shovels which they used to slaughter some 292 crocs, ranging from palm-sized babies to two-metre adults, authorities said.

Outnumbered police and conservation officials said they were unable to stop the reprisal attack.

Photographs released by Antara news agency showed bloodied carcasses of the crocodiles in a large pile in the Sorong district of the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua.




The head of Indonesia's Natural Resources Conservation Agency in West Papua said that the 48-year-old victim had entered the crocodile farm and was likely picking grass for animal feed when he was attacked.

"An employee heard someone screaming for help, he quickly went there and saw a crocodile attacking someone," Basar Manullang said in a statement.

After the burial of the man on Saturday, villagers entered the farm and killed all the crocodiles, said Manullang.




Manullang said the farm had been given a license to breed protected saltwater and New Guinea crocodiles in 2013 for preservation and also to harvest some of the animals.

But one of the conditions was that the reptiles did not disturb the community, he said.

"To prevent this from happening again, farming license holders need to secure surrounding areas," said Manullang. He said his agency was coordinating with police in their investigation.

"Crocodiles are God's creatures that need to be protected too," Manullang said.




The bloody incident highlighted the dangers of trespassing into a breeding farm and also raised concerns about its safety.

"They have to make sure that the farm has good barriers and they need to step up security with CCTV and security signs to warn people" of the dangers, said Dwi Nugroho Adhiasto, programme manager at the World Conservation Society's Indonesia office.

The Southeast Asian archipelago is home to a vast array of wildlife, including several species of crocodile that regularly attack and kill humans.




In March authorities in Borneo shot and killed a six-metre long crocodile after it ate a local palm plantation worker.

Two years ago, a Russian tourist was killed by a crocodile in the Raja Ampat islands, a popular diving site in Indonesia's east.

Court Grants Assange Freedom As U.S. Ramps Up Claims

International Court orders safe passage for Assange

By Andrew Kreig
07/16/2018

A major international human rights body has ordered the United Kingdom to free WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for safe passage out of the kingdom — just when it seemed likely that the UK and other Western powers were on the verge seizing Assange on old charges and possibly major new ones.


Assange (Photograph: Ben Stansall/AFP)
Ruling on a petition brought by Ecuador, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights announced on July 12 a so-far little-reported ruling that political asylum in a nation's foreign embassy — as Ecuador has granted Assange in London for six years — carries also a right of safe passage out of a country, as in Assange's situation. The Costa Rican-based court is a unit of the Organization of American States (OAS) that adjudicates cases, such as referrals from the OAS Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. 



The court ruled that its jurisdiction extends globally when the rights of its members are involved. Under that authority, it ordered the United Kingdom to release Assange for safe passage to Ecuador.

The court's press release stated that the court ruling, issued on May 30 and kept confidential, was delivered to the parties on July 12. The announcement said that the court has not yet received a response from the UK on the decision.




Whatever the UK response, the ruling by the five judges is likely to become controversial because so many major Western nations have such deep hostility towards Assange, whose organization operates in a gray zone between hackers and conventional media.

Years ago, Assange released via WikiLeaks vast quantities of secret foreign and military documents that showed apparent torture, other war crimes and deceitful practices by Western nations.




A new factor is the U.S. Justice Department's July 13 indictment of 12 Russian GRU intelligence officers.

The government alleges that the Russians illegally used massive amounts of stolen political documents from such entities as the Democratic National Committee to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Republicans. The conspiracy was said to include an international group — unnamed and uncharged — that is widely reported to be WikiLeaks.

Since 2010, our Justice Integrity Project has reported extensively on sexual misconduct claims made by two women that year against Assange. The claims (including that he engaged in unprotected sexual relations) have not led to any formal charges against Assange by Sweden in the nearly eight years since his visit there.


Assange and one of his accusers Anna Ardin

But Sweden's aggressive investigation has led to court battles that have kept Assange confined for six years as a political refugee in a small room in Ecuador's London embassy while he was widely smeared in the popular press as a suspected sex criminal.

Yet that "case" against Assange was dubious and tainted by Sweden's oppressive, secretive non-jury court procedures. Even so, one of the complainants, identified most frequently in the press merely as "SW," completely disappeared in 2010 soon after inviting Assange to sleep with her, as we have previously reported in accounts excerpted below.

A team of Swedish computer sleuths reported several years ago that "SW" and a number of her "friends" have disappeared from view, suggesting that either they were very frightened of a man long departed from Sweden or that they had been part of a secret operation.

This summer Assange has risked losing even his safe harbor of a room in Ecuador's embassy because of the recent change in Ecuador's government to new conservative leaders displeased by new WikiLeaks disclosures. Ecuador has cut off Assange's Internet and other communications, partly as a reaction to pressure from the United States. The New York Post reported on July 14 that Assange could soon be evicted from London embassy,




WikiLeaks, which launched its first server in 2006 and claims to possess 10 million documents, specializes in release of secret documents received from anonymous sources. Its stated goal? To increase accountability for governments and other major players. In early 2016, a presidential campaign year, WikiLeaks ramped up release of American political documents that hurt Democrats especially.

Background: Sweden Framed Assange On Sex Charges As UK Cooperated

In late 2010, our project received a tip that U.S. intelligence officials had close relationships with Swedish political and court officials relevant to the Assange investigation.

We found that Swedish officials had been undertaking irregular procedures in investigating Assange and that most in the mainstream media in Sweden, the rest of Europe and in the United States were content to rely upon official statements and in effect go along with a remarkable abuse of multiple nations' legal systems.




An appendix below summarizes previous reporting on this this findings and credits such leading investigators as Swedish medical school professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli, founder of the watchdog group Swedish Doctors for Human Rights and the magazine The Indicter, as well as independent columnists Naomi Wolf and Celia Farber.

For now, however, it's enough to report that the OAS court has called for Assange's freedom. Assange, a native of Australia, has claimed in court papers that he believes the United States has obtained a secret indictment against him in a Virginia federal court on spy charges for his long-ago activities.

New Suspicions About 2016 Election

An entirely new legal dimension became apparent on July 13 with the announcement by U.S. Deputy Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein (shown below) of the indictment of the 12 Russian GRU military intelligence officers.


Rod Rosenstein (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

The organization is part of Russia's military and is more akin to the NSA in the United States than to the CIA or Russia's SVD, which is the successor to the KGB.

In practical terms, the indictment links the alleged wrongdoing to Russia's power structure, not to isolated hackers as Trump and his defenders sometimes claim.


Russian GRU (Main intelligence Directorate)
U.S. authorities accused the Russians of conspiring with unnamed others to influence the 2016 presidential election with documents stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other Democratic Party bodies. 

The new indictment follows a previous one in February naming 13 Russian defendants, mostly fairly low-level figures working in social media.



The newer indictment (whose 29-pages are shown here) alleged that GRU officers used a go-between named "Guccifer 2.0" to distribute documents to, among others, an unamed congressional candidate and an international body. Analysts have concluded that Wikileaks was the international body.

This conclusion is based on extensive albeit disputed reporting since the campaign showing how Wikileaks and Assange touted disclosures embarassing to Democrats during the 2016 campaign. The front-running Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign had been Secretary of State until early 2013 during the period when Western nations began hyping sexual misconduct claims against Assange, whose disclosures were making him and his organization seem heroic to some and disloyal to others.

The Justice Department indictment on July 13 alleged stolen documents were laundered through anti-Clinton allies and released to the larger public to show favoritism by Democratic officials during the primary season to the front-running Democrat Clinton, thereby hurting her main rival, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the independent from Vermont (shown below with Clinton in a graphic illustrating their campaign).




Releases causing disputes at the 2016 Democratic National Convention came when the party was seeking unity between the supporters of Clinton and Sanders. Continued revelations inevitably helped the Republican nominee Donald Trump.

The controversy continues to fester in some quarters, including because of a de facto alliance between some Trump defenders on the right and Clinton opponents from the left. Some of the latter remain strong opponents of Clinton's hawkish foreign policies.

These Clinton opponents claim, much like many Trump suporters, that the Russian influence invstigation of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, a Republican former FBI director, has been hoked up in order to continue a militaristic U.S. and NATO foreign policy.


Robert Mueller

Those claims and counter-claims are beyond the scope of today's report, which is intended to provide more simply the news of IACHR's decision, which the major media have almost entirely overlooked so far.

The decision, which does not mention the U.S. indictment of Russians, came during a flood of news on Friday the 13th.

Among developments aside from the above-noted Justice Department indictments: President Trump created many controversies during his European trip last week. He is preparing also for a one-on-one summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin scheduled for July 16 in Finland just after the World Cup finale in Russia Sunday.

The news includes Trump's unprecedented public sneers at NATO and major U.S. allies, including UK Prime Minister Theresa May, as well as widespread suspicions that he and Putin cannot be trusted given current circumstances to meet privately in Finland with no witnesses except possibly their translators.

What's Next?

Looking ahead, two important mysteries are likely to be resolved fairly soon.

First is whether the UK will comply with the international court's finding, which is made (at least formally) on behalf of the 35 OAS members (portrayed in the seal below). The member states include all Western Hemisphere nations, including the United States, which was not represented on the judicial panel and is not a signatory to the court's convention.




A press release on the court's decision quoted its decision this way:

    If the UK continues to ignore the court’s decision by insisting that local police will arrest Assange for a breach of bail conditions if he leaves the embassy, this means that the British government will have wantonly failed to uphold Assange’s rights as a legitimate receiver of asylum by Ecuador.

    While London has yet to respond to the Court’s ruling, it is imperative that Assange is allowed to make the safe passage to Ecuador demanded by the Court as his physical and mental health conditions have been described as deteriorating rapidly.

Second, the public can be expected to see in coming weeks (if not sooner) whether U.S. authorities will identify and indeed prosecute those alleged by the indictment to have cooperated with Russian military intelligence and hackers.

Defenders of Trump and Russia have been claiming since the indictment on July 13 that it named only Russians because prosecutors do not dare test their claims in court against Americans.

The contrary view from defenders of the Mueller investigation, including this editor, is the indictments of Russians appear to be just one inetrim step on a path that will lead to a trial for many others, possibly including Assange.

Globalist Elites Fear Peace, Want War

Only madmen oppose peace with Russia and the DPRK  

STRATEFIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
By Federico Pieraccini
07/13/2018

The announced meeting between Trump and Putin has already produced a good result by revealing the hypocrisy of the media and politicians. 


The meeting has been branded as the greatest danger to humanity, according to the Western globalist elite, because of the danger that "peace could break out between Russia and the United States." Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. The following so stretches credulity that sources will have to be cited and an exact quotations given to be believed.

A case in point is the following UK Times title: "Fears growing over the prospect of Trump 'peace deal' with Putin." 


The Times does not here fear a military escalation in Ukraine, an armed clash in Syria, a false-flag poisoning in England, or a new Cold War. The Times does not fear a nuclear apocalypse, the end of humanity, the suffering of hundreds of millions of people. No, one of the most authoritative and respected broadsheets in the world is fearful of the prospect of peace.

The Times is afraid that the heads of two nuclear-armed superpowers are able to talk to each other. The Times fears that Putin and Trump will be able to come to some kind of agreement that can help avert the danger of a global catastrophe. These are the times in which we live. And this is the type of media we deal with. The problem with The Times is that it forms public opinion in the worst possible way, confusing, deceiving, and disorienting its readers. It is not by accident the world in which we live is increasingly divorced from logic and rationality.


Fake news calling out... fake news

Even if the outcome of this meeting does not see any substantial progress, the most important thing to be achieved will be the dialogue between the two leaders and the opening of negotiation channels for both sides.

In The Times article, it is assumed that Trump and Putin want to reach an agreement regarding Europe. The insinuation is that Putin is manipulating Trump in order to destabilize Europe. For years now we have been inundated with such fabrications by the media on behalf of their editors and shareholders, all part of the deep state conglomerate. Facts have in fact proven that Putin has always desired a strong and united Europe, looking to integrate Europe into the Eurasian dream. Putin and Xi Jinping would like to see a European Union more resistant to American pressure and able to gain greater independence. The combination of mass migration and sanctions against Russia and Iran, which end up hurting Europeans, opens the way for alternative parties that are not necessarily willing to Washington’s marching orders.


UK, U.S. corporate fake news media team up to trash Russia, world peace

Trump's focus for the meeting will be to convince Putin to put even more pressure on Europe and Iran, perhaps in exchange for the recognition of Crimea and the ending of sanctions. For Putin and for Russia it is a strategic issue. While sanctions are bad, the top priority for Moscow remains the alliance with Iran, the need to further strengthen relations with European countries, and to defeat terrorism in Syria. Perhaps only a revision of the ABM treaty and the withdrawal of these weapons from Europe would be an interesting offer for Putin. 

However, reality shows us that the ABM treaty is a pillar of Washington’s military-industrial complex, and that it is also Eastern European countries that want such offensive and defensive systems in their own countries, seeing them as a deterrents against Russia. Are they victims of their own propaganda, or are billions of dollars pouring into their pockets? Either way, it does not really matter. 




The most important point for Moscow will be the withdrawal of the Aegis Ashore ABM systems as well as military ships with the same Aegis system. But this is not something that Trump will be able to negotiate with his military leaders. For the military-industrial complex, the ABM system, thanks to maintenance, innovation and direct or indirect commissions, is a gravy train that too many interests intend to keep riding.

From the Kremlin's point of view, the removal of sanctions remains necessary for the restoration of normal relations with the West. But this would be difficult to achieve, given that Moscow would have little to offer Washington in exchange. The strategists at the Pentagon demand a withdrawal from Syria, an end to support for Donbass, and a cessation of relations with Iran. There is simply too much divergence to reach a common position. 


CNN fake news ramps up anti-Russia propaganda 72 hours before Putin-trump summit

Moreover, Europe’s sanctions against Russia benefit Washington, as they hurt the Europeans and thereby undermine what is a major trading competitor to the US. The US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) can be looked at in the same light, blocking US allies from doing business with Iran.

Putin will keep faith with his commitments to Syria and with his allies, unwilling to betray his word even for the recognition of Crimea. On the other hand, as already mentioned, the priority remains the removal of the ABM; and while Crimea is already under the control of the Russian Federation, Syria remains an unstable territory that risks propelling Islamist terrorism to Russia’s soft underbelly in the Caucasus. For Moscow, involvement in Syria has always been a matter of national security, and this certainly remains the same now, even with Donald Trump's unrealistic offers.




It should be kept in mind that Putin is aiming for a medium- to long-term strategy in the Middle East, where Iran, Syria and the entire Shiite arc serves to counter Saudi and Israeli aggression and hegemony. This strange alliance has emerged as the only way to deter war and dial down the heat in the region, because the crazy actions from Netanyahu or Mohammad bin Salman are deterred by a strong Iranian military. Preventing a confrontation between Iran and Saudis/Israelis also means not making Tehran appear weak or isolated. Such considerations seem beyond the strategists in Washington, let alone in Tel Aviv or Riyadh.

While it is difficult to achieve a positive outcome from the meeting between Trump and Putin, it is important that there is a meeting in the first place, contrary to what The Times thinks. The media and the conglomerate of power that revolves around the US deep state fear diplomacy in particular. The same narrative that was proclaimed weeks before and after the meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un is being repeated with regard to Trump’s meeting with Putin.




Washington bases its power on force, both economic and military. But this power also rests on the posture assumed and image projected. The United States and its deep state considers negotiating with opponents to be wrong and counterproductive. They consider dialogue to be synonymous with weakness, and any concession is interpreted as surrender. This is the result of 70 years of American exceptionalism and 30 years of Unipolarity, has allowed the US the ability to decide unilaterally the fate of others.

Today, in a multipolar world, the dynamics are different and therefore more complex. You cannot always employ a zero-sum mentality, as The Times does. The rest of the world recognizes that a dialogue between Putin and Trump is something positive, but we must not forget that, as in Korea, if diplomacy does not bring significant progress, then the hawks surrounding Trump will again be in the ascendant. The tasks for Rouhani, Putin and Kim Jong-un are complex and quite different from each other, but they share in common the belief that dialogue is the only way to avoid a catastrophic war. But apparently, peace is not the best possible result for everyone.

CNN Ratings Down To Double Digits

DOJ now needs to unleash investigators on CNN fake news for sedition, collusion with FBI in Russiagate utilising RICO statutes  

FTV LIVE
07/05/2018

With the 2nd quarter wrapped up, let's look at the cable news ratings.


CNN Moscow trash can man Mathew Chance: Digging
deep to get to the bottom of the barrel
Fox News won the quarter for the 66th straight time and CNN also found themselves in a familar spot. 

Last. 

In fact if you combine CNN and MSNBC's ratings, the two barely beat Fox News in total day viewers. And while 2 of the 3 networks were down in total day viewers for the quarter, only CNN saw their ratings drop into the double digits. CNN lost almost a quarter of their demo viewers as well. 


  • FNC: 1,409,000 total viewers – down 4% (286,000 in 25-54 – down 9%);
  • MSNBC: 930,000 total viewers – up 5% (196,000 in 25-54 – down 5%);
  • CNN: 658,000 total viewers – down 16% (202,000 in 25-54 – down 23%).



In Primetime, CNN was once again the big loser, MSNBC and Fox News grew (Bill O'Reilly who?): 

  • FNC: 2,447,000 total viewers – up 4% (480,000 in 25-54 – up 2%);
  • MSNBC: 1,736,000 total viewers – up 6% (346,000 in 25-54 – down 11%);
  • CNN: 929,000 total viewers – down 12% (302,000 in 25-54 – down 18%).



As we now have entered the 3rd quarter, CNN continues to lose its way and watch their ratings continue to fall. 

All numbers according to Nielsen Media Research.

Trump Stomps CNN Fake News' Acosta On Global Stage

Not satisfied with shooting themselves in the foot, CNN frauds and hacks now put the gun to their heads   

AGENCIES
07/14/2018

President Trump used the global stage to call an unfair news network "Fake News" at a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday.


During a question and answer session, after both leaders made short speeches CNN's Jim Acosta made a fool of himself yet again with his usual press briefing hysterics, throwing the question and answer session into chaos once more by screeching at Trump who took multiple questions from reporters during the press conference ranging from his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday to his recent interview with The Sun, in which he criticized May and questioned the possibility of a U.S.-U.K. trade deal. 


After Trump finished an answer, reporters in the audience raised their hands to ask another question, including Acosta, who interjected to ask a question since Trump criticized CNN.

Trump also criticized NBC after their "reporter" Kristen Welker asked if Trump “is giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the upper hand, heading into your talks, given that you are challenging these alliances that he seeks to break up and destroy?” He then called the journalist "dishonest" and the network "possibly worse than CNN."




This time around at Buckinghamshire Acosta shrieked and proceeded to throw another tantrum when Trump refused to take his question. "Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?" Acosta asked Trump.

"This is wrong news, I do not take questions from CNN, CNN is a false news, I do not take questions from wrong news," said the President.

Indonesian Pyramids Of West Java

A possible key to the golden age of civilisation  

THE FARAM FOUNDATION
07/12/2018

West Java, Indonesia 

The West Javanese have passed down through their folklore that the Egyptians once visited their island.


Garut Pyramid, Java (Photo: Theresia Felisiani)
The early presumption of a Pyramid existence in this country began with a series of Turangga Seta expeditions conducting mapping of reliefs in Candi (Temple of) Penataran (Blitar, East Java) from 2007 to 2009. The colonization of Indonesia by the ancient Egyptians is fully documented by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles in his volume, The History of Java - John Murrey Publishing, London - 1830. Tomb paintings and writings show that the Egyptians were trading down the Red Sea and into the Indian Ocean before 2000 BC. 


They made regular excursions to Lebanon before 2500 BC for cedar. During the reign of female pharaoh Hatshepsut (1503-1482 BC), ships 90 to 100 feet long were sailing to and from the Land of Punt.

Geoglyphology 

This paper details the results of a geoglyphical study of the newly discovered Lalakon and Satahurip Pyramids in West Java, Indonesia. The origin of these structures will be studied using spherical geometry to follow the bearings created by the ridge detail designed into the pyramid. The practice of using the geometry of ancient structures to release hidden details of their purpose is not a new practice. This practice has been handed down through generations since before the building of the Egyptian pyramids. I call the re-discovery and application of this ancient practice Geoglyphology. 


Lalakon Pyramid, Java

One function of Geoglyphology, as it relates to Archeology, is to expand both the search area and the knowledge base available to the Archaeologist. Until now the majority of the information available to the Archaeologist is gleaned from the information recovered at the dig site. In recent years it has been discovered that a great majority of the ancient architectural, monolithic and geoglyphic structures built around the world have something in common. That commonality is that the structures were aligned in such a manner that the study of their linier alignment unveils a much larger story and immensely expands the data available to the archeologist and the related disciplines. 

Data recovered from sites that included Geoglyphology in their study included; Obtaining the geographical range of the culture being studied, the level of sophistication that existed in relation to their understanding of mathematics and geometry, their knowledge of world geography, the discovery of other archeological sites that were unknown prior to the studies, and the dating of the culture itself from the data collected at related offsite locations, identified by the alignments at the dig site. The success of these studies shows that Geoglyphology can play a major role in expanding the knowledge base available to the Archeologist.


Gunung Padang, West Java

Our research has shown that some type of worldwide territorial apportionment took place long before the Egyptian pyramids were built. It appears that civilizations that existed prior to the Egyptians were also building monuments and pyramids to outline these ancient territories for posterity. A few examples of geoglyphs that have been discovered, which outline ancient territories, are: 

Bosnian Pyramids - (26,400 BC) These pyramids originally outlined what is now known as Europe and Africa and Canada. This was later amended by pyramids being constructed near the original Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun which reduced the described territory to include only Europe. The Celts were later driven, by other civilizations, west into Western Europe and Denmark. The Bosnian Pyramid is the oldest and largest pyramid discovered thus far. The boundaries that were originally outlined by the pyramids and structures in ancient times have been broken up into smaller and smaller territories, countries and states as time has passed. 


Visoko, Bosnia Pyramid

Yonaguni Pyramid - (c10,000 BC) This pyramid outlines the same territory which Japan wamidas attempting to re-establish in the Second World War. 

Lalakon Pyramid - (Not yet dated by an onsite study.) The construction of this pyramid is very similar to the unusual construction used in the Bosnian pyramids. 

Caral, Peru - (c10,000 BC) Outlines the territory known as South America. 

Gulfo de Cintra Geoglyph - (Built before 7000 BC) The Gulfo de Cintra geoglyph was the territorial marker prior to the Giza Pyramid being built. The age of the geoglyph is confirmed by the fact that the Nabta Playa geoglyph in Southern Egypt, which has been dated as being 7000 years old, points to the Gulfo de Cintra geoglyph. The Gulfo de Cintra Geoglyph points back to Nabta Playa. 

Inspiration Peak, Minnesota USA - Older than 3100 BC, as determined by its location being identified by one of the radials of Stonehenge. Inspiration Peak originally depicted a territory covering the entirety of North America and Mesoamerica. This too was divided up through historic battles and treaties.border. 

The reason the age of Inspiration Peak cannot be determined to be older than c3100 BC is because the oldest confirmed reference to the this marker is Stonehenge (c3100 BC), which points out Inspiration Peak as being the center point of the adjoining territory. It is a common protocol for the ancients to include one bearing in a major monument which points to the geoglyph outlining the adjoining territory. 

As will be shown, the Indonesian pyramids validate the ancient territories of South America, Mesoamerica and North America, later to become the United States. In this case Luxor, the main spiritual location of the Egyptians, is pointed out from the Indonesian Lalakon Pyramid and what is now England is pointed out by the Indonesian Sadahurip Pyramid. 




This reference to Luxor and England is pointing out the territory on one side of the subject territories as being Africa and the territory on the other side of the subject territories being England. This in itself may give a clue as to the age of the two pyramids. Caral, Peru, which is 7,000 years old, is referred to directly as the survey marker defining the South American Territory. Stonehenge, the current marker for the Celtic Territory, Giza, the current marker for what is now Africa, and Inspiration Peak MN, the current marker for what is now the United States, are not referenced here. 

The indonesian pyramids point to Luxor rather than Giza, and to the north tip of England instead of Stonehenge, and the island of Newport, RI instead of Inspiration Peak. This would be the case if the Indonesian Pyramids were built prior to the afore mentioned territorial markers having been built. All three of the markers mentioned were constructed after 3100 BC. That would mean that the Indonesian Pyramids would have had to have been constructed between 7,000 BC, the established age of Caral Peru, and 3100 BC a date prior to Stonehenge, Giza and Inspiration Peak being established. That would place the Indonesian pyramids age at between 5000 and 12,000 years old. It will be interesting to see what the actual age of the pyramids will be calculated to be. Although current information prohibits the dating the Indonesian Pyramids prior to the Ice Age, the construction is similar to the Bosnian Pyramids which date to before the Ice Age. 


Sadahurip

Stonehenge - (c2900 BC) Depicts the territory from the west coast of Europe to the west coast of what is now Canada. 

Giza Pyramid - (c2560 BC) Claims the territory of Libya (The ancient name for Africa). In addition, Egypt is referenced throughout geoglyphic history as the focal point of a coalition which includes five territories mentioned previously. 

Chichen Itza, Mexico - (c600 AD) Outlines the territory of Mesoamerica, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. 

Several other territories have been studied and confirmed in other parts of the world, such as the Pyramids of China, but the main focus here are the combined territories of the areas highlighted in the study of the Lalakon and Sadahurip geoglyphs. 

The Lalakon Pyramid is rather dismal sight in comparison with most other pyramids of the world. The pyramid has degraded from attacks by the monsoons that are prevalent in the area. One thing that detracts from its majesty is the fact that, just like the Bosnian Pyramids, this pyramid is cut out of a ridgeline. This was really quite brillient. This would allow the builder to carry the unused earth that was removed from the structure downhill. That appears to be what was done here. On the northeast side of the pyramid there appears to be an unnatural amount of earth in a continuous slope down to the valley below. 


Lalakon Pyramid, West Java (06 57'29.11"S 107 31'15.31"E)

Our research shows that the pyramid does have four ridges but that they are not symmetrical. Experience has shown that non-symmetrical pyramids are primarily used to denote direction rather than being constructed as a monument. These directional ridges are used to outline a territory, convey a message, or to memorialize where the builder was from. Since the Lalakon Pyramid was not constructed of stone, or covered with a stone facing, the earth has worn away the ridges over the years until it is barely recognizable as a pyramid. This makes it more difficult to determine the location of the ridges from which to determine the directional bearings. These bearings will indicate the territory, or important points, which the builder intending to communicate. 

In this case a topographical study was performed to determine the highest points on the pyramid. If there are ridgelines they will then become visible. Some ridges may not be perfect due to erosion but the original line can be determined. After close examination it was determined that there were four ridges on the pyramid which were aligned along the bearings of 62, 111, 180, and 298 Degrees. Another confirmation that this is a legitimate geoglyph is the fact that it contains a cardinal bearing in its makeup. This is the ancient protocol for verifying that this is a true geoglyph. That route cannot be plotted on a flat map because when you transition a map from a sphere to a flat plane, severe distortion occurs. Magnetic bearings cannot be used due to the magnetic deviation that occurs when using magnetic headings. The results of our findings follow. 


Lalakon Pyramid from above

Lalakon Pyramid North

Lalakon Pyramid South

Endpoints for the bearings displayed in the above photos. 
  • 062 Degree Radial - So Tip of Baja;
  • 111 Degree Radial - Galapagos Islands, Eastern Pacific;
  • 180 Degree Radial - Southern Tip of South America;
  • 298 Degree Radial - Luxor, Egypt (Also highlighted by the Bosnian Pyramids, which are of the same type of construction.)

The four endpoints listed above most likely do not mean much to the reader. As the following information will attest, the Lalakon and Salahurip pyramids, and most likely the many other earthen pyramids in Indonesia, have ties to Egypt. The radial endpoints presented here have been used for millennia, so these are not new concepts. The intersection of the points concerning two or more geoglyphs is not unusual since many termination points are used many times over in presenting this ancient information. 

The results that follow show an intentional conveyance of information connecting Egypt the Americas and Asia. The time period in which the Indonesian pyramids were built can only be determined by an onsite excavation. 


045 and 135 degree radials where they leave the Giza Pyramid

One might ask; why do Indonesian pyramids point to Egypt and territories in the Americas? Our foundation has previously released studies, on the various parts of a worldwide puzzle of ancient territories on the subject. In this study I will present the short version of this phenomenon and then verify the information in the diagrams and text. During our research a pattern has been developing which seems to align with Plato's statement that, in the beginning, there were certain territories that were assigned to the ancient gods. (For this presentation I will presume "Gods" to mean; those who have more knowledge than we do.) These statements can be found in the Plato's "Critias". A portion of that text is presented here: 

"In the days of old the gods had the whole earth distributed among them by allotment. There was no quarrelling; for you cannot rightly suppose that the gods did not know what was proper for each of them to have, or, knowing this, that they would seek to procure for themselves by contention that which more properly belonged to others. They, all of them by just apportionment, obtained what they wanted and peopled their own districts. Now different gods had their allotments in different places which they set in order. Hephaestus and Athene, who were brother and sister, and sprang from the same father, having a common nature, and being united also in the love of philosophy and art, both obtained as their common portion this land, which was naturally adapted for wisdom and virtue; and there they implanted brave children of the soil, and put into their minds the order of government; their names are preserved, but their actions have disappeared by reason of the destruction of those who received the tradition, and the lapse of ages."

The 045 and 135 radials are the only two radials that emanate from the Giza pyramid and meet the protocols of the ancients. There are however many minor geoglyphs around the world which point to Giza and validate it's geoglyphic purpose. In one of our studies we found that the 045 and 135 degree radials, emanating from Giza, played an important part in defining the boundaries of Celtic territories, later depicted by Stonehenge. In this study we found the same radials used in the Lalakon Pyramid to highlight the territories of the Americas. I'm sure that as we gain more knowledge these radials will come into play again.

Bearings associated with the Mount Sadahurip Pyramid

Endpoints for the bearings displayed in the above photos. 
  • 008 Degree Radial - Cape Hatteras - Eastern most point in the North American Territory, later to be the USA;
  • 037 Degree Radial - Northwest Corner of the North American Territory, at the boundary between the US and Canada;
  • 043 Degree Radial - Tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico - Location of Chichen Itza, the center point for the Mesoamerican territory;
  • 131 Degree Radial - Center of the Meteor Crater associated with the South American Territory, as defined by the Caral, Peru Geoglyphs;
  • 163 Degree Radial - Caral Peru - Center point of the South American Territory;
  • 180 Degree Radial - Southern Tip of South America - Southern point in the South American Territory;
  • 253 Degree Radial - The point Where Panama Meets Columbia (East Side), The border between the Mesoamerican Territory and the South American Territory;
  • 275 Degree Radial - The point Where Panama Meets Columbia (West Side), The border between the Mesoamerican Territory and the South American Territory;
  • 329 Degree Radial - North Tip of Scotland - The Sadahurip pyramid was most likely built before Stonehenge, the current marker, was built;
  • 360 Degree Radial - Newport Island, RI USA - Mentioned in Geoglyphs as old as 7000 years. One of the major survey markers for the North American Territory. 

Sadahurip Pyramid radial endpoints

In the previous diagram the curvature of the lines is missing since they were drawn on a flat surface; however, all lines were plotted on a computer, using the great circle route, before they were placed on the map, using the endpoints. If you will refer back to the previous photos showing the radials that make up the three territories, you will see that the center survey point for all three territories of the Americas is pointed out by the Sadahurip Pyramid. In the next photo the radials of both the Lalakon and Satahurip Pyramids, and the Giza 045 and 135 degree radials, are plotted together in one diagram to demonstrate that they are not an anomaly but were carefully crafted to point out a relationship with the three territories of the Americas. 

The three ancient territories depicted on the previous photo are: 

An Ancient North American Territory that would eventually become the USA. The area is explained is defined by the small arrow at the upper northwest point on the globe, the line pointing to the eastern most point in the USA and the redline running just south of Florida to the Baja Peninsula. The original North American Territory ran from the equator to the North Pole.

CONCLUSIONS 

The data that were gathered show a definite global pattern and a sophisticated mastery of geometry. The interaction and display of a worldwide connection between territories leaves no doubt that an ancient culture left markers, intentionally or unintentionally, for later generations to discover. 

Smaller geoglyphs around the world, discovered in previous studies but not mentioned here, support and validate a continuous progression of the protocols used here as having being passed down, from generation to generation, for millennia. This information is verifiable and repeatable by anyone with a computer and the desire to validate the information.
