Rothschild-owned The Economist’s 2015 cover full of unsettling symbols

The Economist is a well-known and quite prestigious London-based weekly news magazine, founded in 1843 by James Wilson, a Scottish businessman, economist and politician. It claims an average weekly circulation of 1.5 million in 2006, about half of which were sold in the United States.

The publication belongs to The Economist Group, half of which is owned by Pearson PLC via the Financial Times. The other half is owned by a group of independent shareholders, including the Rothschild banking family of England.

That the Rothchilds own part of The Economist accounts for why Vigilant Citizen (VC), the blogger who specializes in analyzing pop culture symbols and their hidden meanings, gives import to the magazine’s disquieting “The World in 2015” cover with a mushroom cloud from a nuclear bomb explosion, among other disturbing images. In VC’s words:

It [The Economist] is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attended several times to the Bilderberg Conference – the secretive meeting where the world’s most powerful figures from the world of politics, finance business and media discuss global policies. The outcome of those meetings is totally secret. It is therefore safe to say that the people at The Economist know things that most people don’t.

Here is The Economist‘s 2015 cover (click to enlarge), followed by an analysis.

economist_magazine_jan2015

To begin, The Economist‘s 2015 cover is reminiscent of the eerie image on the album cover of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (see below), which was a color photo taken in a studio of the four Beatles wearing band uniforms, surrounded by life-size cardboard cutouts of themselves in suits, as well as those of famous personalities, both living and dead.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Beatles, of course, are in color, as are some of the cardboard figures, while other figures are in black and white (b&w). There doesn’t seem to be a discernible reason for why some are in b&w because they include people both dead (e.g., Karl Marx) and alive (e.g., Bob Dylan).

Black & White Faces

The Economist‘s “The World in 2015” cover also has various figures in color and b&w, with one difference — only the heads and faces of some are in b&w, while their bodies are in color, which gives their faces a grey, drained-of-blood, walking-dead quality. The b&w heads are a majority, and they include both the living (Barack Obama) and the dead (Winston Churchill). Vigilant Citizen thinks that “those in black and white appear to be part of the elite (including the ISIS guy who probably works for them) and those in color are ‘outsiders’. Is this how the elite perceives the world?”

The Pied Piper

Economist 2015a

VC writes:

“The presence of the Pied Piper on this 2015-themed cover is downright unsettling. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a German legend about a man who used his magical flute to lure away the children of the city of Hamelin, never to be seen again.

This folkloric figure dating from the Middle-Ages is said to represent either massive death by plague or catastrophe, or a movement of massive immigration. It also perfectly represents today’s youth being ‘lured’ and mystified by the ‘music’ of mass media. Conveniently enough, there’s a small boy right under the Piper’s flute.”

To reinforce the message of pop music’s seductive allure, there’s a drum set beneath the clueless little boy. One drum has stars and stripes (signifying American pop music); another is inscribed with “50th,” meaning what?

Game of Panic

VC writes: “Right under the Pied Piper we see a young boy with dumbfounded look on his face. He is watching a game called ‘Panic’. The words ‘Federal Reserve’ and ‘Chi’ (which probably stands for China) are on top while the words ‘Green light!’ and ‘sis!’ (which probably stands for ‘Isis!’ or ‘Crisis!’) are at the bottom. The little boy watches as this twisted game of Plinko unfolds the same way the clueless masses watch powerlessly while various events unfold on mass media. As the name of the game states, the ultimate goal is to cause Panic around the world as crises are almost randomly generated by those who control the game. And that’s on a magazine cover owned by the Rothschilds.”

Crop Duster

Economist 2015c

In front of a sinister-looking Russian president Vladimir Putin is a small helicopter on which is written Crop-O-Dust — a reference to crop dusting, “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.

Right under the helicopter is an Asian kid, eating processed noodles, made from wheat that the crop duster had sprayed?

And below the kid is “PANIC”!

.

CHINA

Next to the noodle-eating Chinese kid is a panda on steroids, wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles — a clear reference to China gaining power. The panda dwarfs a sumo wrestler, signifying the eclipse of Japan by China.

The sumo wrestler holds an out-sized battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. VC wonders if that’s a symbol for a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?

Economist 2015d

GHOST ON HOLIDAY

Economist 2015e

VC writes: “Emerging from behind Obama’s leg is a ghost reading a magazine entitled ‘Holiday’. Why is this ghost, which represents a dead person, planning a vacation? Does it represent the fact that the masses will be so impoverished that the only time they’ll be on a holiday is when they’re dead? Does it relate to the countless people who died while traveling in the past months? Creepy.”

TURTLE

Economist 2015 turtle

VC writes: “Standing in front of everything else, gazing right into our souls is a turtle with emphasis lines around its shell. What does it represent? Will turtles make a huge comeback in 2015? Probably not.

Fabian Society turtleAn angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards the formation of a single world government. The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order…..

Fabian Society original logoThe Fabian Society used to openly advocate a scientifically planned society and supported eugenics by way of sterilization. Its original logo was a wolf in sheep’s clothing … But I guess that was not the best way to conceal the wolf from the masses. [A turtle is so much better!]

Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing.”

11.3 and 11.5

VC writes: “The lower right side of the cover features some more cryptic symbols. There’s a pile of dirt on the ground and two arrows on which are inscribed 11.5 and 11.3. Are those dates to remember? Why are they next to a pile of dirt? If you look up these figures as coordinates, they point to somewhere in Nigeria. Displaying numbers that can only be truly understood by ‘those in the know’ is one of the occult elite’s favorite hobbies.”

Economist 2015f

Alice in Wonderland & the Cheshire Cat

Standing to the right of the 11.5 (November 5?) and 11.3 (November 3?) arrows is Alice in Wonderland, who’s looking up at the Cheshire Cat on a tree branch. VC writes: “This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin. We therefore see another allusion to a world of fantasy, illusion and deceit as perceived by Alice – a representative of the masses. Along with the somewhat unnecessary inclusion of David Blaine – a magician – the cover mixes real world events with illusions.”

Note that the tree branch is coming from Obama’s leg — the man of fantasy, illusion, and lies.

Economist 2015g

The Lady with No Ermine

To the right of Alice is a portrait that’s a reverse image of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, The Lady with an Ermine (1489-1490), but without the ermine.

The Lady With an ErmineLeonardo da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine (l); Economist 2015 cover’s lady without an ermine (r)

The subject of da Vinci’s portrait is Cecilia Gallerani, the mistress of Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, who was the painter’s patron. Ermines, aka stoats, are known for their purity. That, of course, means that The Economist‘s lady without an ermine is without purity.

Spiderman

Then there’s Spiderman, the only reference to a movie or pop culture figure on The Economist‘s “World in 2015” cover.

Why Spiderman? Why not the even more popular The Hobbit? The worldwide box office total for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was released on May 2, 2014, is $708,996,336. In contrast, the third Hobbit movie The Battle of the Five Armies, which was released on Dec. 10, 2014, already has a worldwide box office of $804,256,417, and the movie hasn’t yet opened in China.

But wait!

Might The Economist‘s Spiderman be a veiled reference to Serco, the British-owned and UK-based global “outsourcing company” government contractor that has a spider as its logo? (H/t FOTM’s marblenecltr)

Serco operates public and private transport and traffic control, aviation, military weapons, detention centers, prisons and schools on behalf of its customers, among whom is the Obama administration. In July 2013, Serco was awarded a $1.25 billion contract to manage the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Obamacare. Serco is also one of the 55 contractors hired by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work on the dysfunctional HealthCare.gov web site.

Spiderman & SERCO

OTHER IMAGES

There are other cryptic images in The Economist‘s 2015 cover like the two-faced globe; the blonde woman with a strange head-dress; the strange thing (a piggy bank?) coming out of UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s suit jacket; and the Illuminati one-eye sign German Chancellor Angela Merkel is making with her hands.

Economist 2015j

Angela Merkel

Whatever the image, know that it’s there for a reason. The Economist had commissioned an artist to put together its “World in 2015” cover, which means much time and thought went into it. The images were selected for a reason, and each has an esoteric meaning known to The Economist but concealed from the rest of us.

Update (May 20, 2015):

My FOTM colleague, Trail Dust, found an explanation for the cover by The Economist’s editor. See “Editor of The Economist explains meaning of 2015 cover illustration“.

Did “The Simpsons” presage the Ebola epidemic? — and other pop culture foreshadowings

The plain fact is that governments do engage in deception, including plotting and instigating false flags — phony mass traumatic events — to advance a covert agenda.

One of the most famous false flags is the Reichstag fire of February, 1933 — an arson attack on the German government’s Reichstag (parliamentary) building in Berlin.

Adolf Hitler, who was sworn in as Chancellor only 4 weeks before, blamed the fire on the Nazis’ rival, the Communists — that the Reichstag fire was the beginning of a Communist plot to overthrow the Weimar Republic. Hitler succeeded in getting then-President Paul von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree. Civil liberties were suspended; the German government instituted mass arrests of Communists, including all of the Communist parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rivals gone and their parliamentary seats empty, Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) went from being a plurality party to the majority, thereby ushering in Hitler’s consolidation of power.

In the United States, there is increasing and compelling evidence that the Sandy Hook school massacre on December 14, 2012, and the Boston Marathon Bombings on April 15, 2013, are both false-flag contrived events. (See “Former CIA spy: Sandy Hook and Boston Bombing were false flags“)

Some of us have become so cynical that we suspect every traumatic event to be another false flag. After all, President Ebola’s former White House adviser (and current mayor of Chicago) Rahm Emanuel did famously advise his fellow Democrats never to let a crisis go to waste, but to make political hay out of those crises.

Adding to our unease is the fact that certain mass traumatic events seemed to have been foreshadowed by eerie pop culture images and references.

As examples:

1. The name “Sandy Hook” is written on a map in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. (The movie is now infamous for being the one shown in a midnight premier on July 20, 2012, in Century Theater, Aurora, Colorado, where alleged lone gunman James Holmes shot and killed 12 and wounded 58.) In the movie, when plotters are determining where mayhem will erupt, police commissioner James Gordon (played by Gary Oldman) points to a map showing a targeted area identified as Sandy Hook, also known as “Strike Zone 1” where Gotham Stadium is located. 

sandyhook

2. The name “Aurora” appears on the top of a skyscraper in the backdrop of another scene in Dark Knight Rises:
Aurora

3. Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games — a book about young people who have to hunt down and kill each other, which was made into a popular series of movies — lives in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, where alleged lone gunman Adam Lanza shot his mother and 26 people in the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

9/11

The terrorist attacks on New York City’s twin towers on September 11, 2001 seemed to have been presaged by many images and ads that, in retrospect, appear sinister and downright spooky. Here are 7 presaging images.

1. The cover design for an album by the hip-hop band The Coup:

The album cover was pulled within two days of the attack, and replaced with a new design in time for the album’s release date of November 6, 2001.

2. In the 1999 movie The Matrix, there’s a scene showing the passport of Neo expiring on September 11, 2001.

6. An ad for an Israeli candy called Elite:

7. 1997 FEMA Emergency Response to Terrorism booklet:

The latest pop culture presage has to do with the current Ebola epidemic.

In 1987, the popular animated TV show The Simpsons had an episode in which Marge Simpson offered her son, Bart, who was sick in bed, a children’s book titled Curious George and the Ebola Virus.

Simpsons Ebola

Are these mere accidental coincidences?

Are they instances of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung’s synchronicity? — temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events (i.e., the events are apparently not causally related) which reveal an underlying pattern or a larger framework.  If they are, what is the underlying pattern or larger framework?

Or are these not coincidences at all, but rather signs of a hidden hand manipulating events, which some attribute to the Illuminati or the shadowy Powers That Be?

What should we make of world leaders at nuclear summit wearing a triangle pin?

2014 nuke security summitOn March 24, 2014, leaders of 53 countries and 4 international organizations met in the World Forum in The Hague, Netherlands for the Nuclear Security Summit.

As Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte put it, the summit is to prevent nuclear terrorism “by preventing dangerous nuclear material from falling into the wrong hands.”

The maker of the video below and Michael Snyder of End of the American Dream draw our attention to many of the attendees wearing a curious triangle pin on their lapels, like this:

2014 nuke security summit1… and this:

2014 nuke security summit symbolBoth Snyder and the video see something sinister in the triangle lapel pins — that, like the pyramid in the U.S. dollar bill, the pin symbolizes the global elite’s secret allegiance to the Free Masons and the Illuminati.

Interestingly, neither Obama nor the host of the summit, Netherlands’ PM Rutte, wore the triangle pin. Obama wore a pin of the American flag; Rutte’s lapels are unadorned.

2014 nuke security summit2While not ruling out an occult intent, I’m not sure how sinister the pin is, because the triangle seems to be the official logo of the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS), with the initials NSS at the 3 corners of the triangle, as you can see on its website and on its Facebook page.

Nuclear Security Summit logoThe word “summit” has two meanings:

  1. A meeting between heads of government
  2. The highest point of a hill or mountain (which would be the shape of a triangle)

It is, therefore, not unreasonable for the Nuclear Security Summit to have a triangle as its symbol. And so, there can be an innocent explanation for the pyramid lapel pin.

What do you think?

Now it’s dog rape. When Obama became president, did a door to Hell open?

We are a fallen creation. For as long as humans first walked this Earth, we’ve had evil. The difference is that nowadays, evil no longer hides in the shadows but has become in-your-face emboldened.

When Barack Hussein Obama was elected and inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America, something in the spirit world stirred. A portal to the yawning abyss was opened, from which an unending army of demonic powers and principalities is unleashed.

frighteningThis pic of Obama and the two to follow are not photoshopped. They were taken at a rally in Boston for Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick on October 16, 2010, when the polling data on Obama and the Democrats were not good. The pix were so extraordinary and alarming, showing Pres. Lucifer in a frightening rage, that both Drudge Report and Rush Limbaugh took note. No wonder the White House is now censoring media photos of the POS.

How else are we to understand the proliferation of “knockout games” — of random assaults on pedestrians in urban streets, not to rob, but for fun? Like the two black teens who beat TO DEATH an 88-year-old WWII veteran?

How else are we to understand the epidemic of random black-on-white assaults — not just street “knockout games” but indoors? Like the young black male who punched a white Safeway grocery store manager to the ground for no reason? And in our homes, like the black home invader who violently assaulted a young mother?

How else are we to understand the rise of Black flash robs and violent flash mobs (herehere, herehere) infesting and terrorizing our cities like swarms of locusts?

How else are we to understand the open calls for a genocide of whites — for the killing of all white people by the New Black Panthers, by the celebrated Nelson Mandela, and by an employee of the Department of Homeland Security — without the media batting an eye, much less any accountability?

Demonic Obama

How else are we to understand our topsy-turvey pop culture where evil is good, and good is evil? Where pop “stars” like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga regularly and unabashedly flash the Illuminati one-eye sign, and young women barely out of their teens simulate masturbation and doggy-style intercourse (Miley Cyrus) and speak of butt plugs (Jennifer Lawrence) on network TV?

How else are we to understand “feminists” not only referring to the unborn as “tumors” and an Episcopal priest (!) calling abortion “a blessing,” but publicly saying Mary should have aborted Jesus?

How else are we to understand, in an America whose population are still predominantly Christian, the removal of the cross and the Ten Commandments from public places, while Satanists vow to erect a monument to their demon?

How else are we to understand a well-known Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes saying he sees nothing wrong with incest, while elite universities like Harvard and Yale sponsor incest dance-fests and incest-bestiality workshops?

Barack Obama

How else are we to understand this latest grotesque depravity —  DOG RAPE?

You read correctly: Dog Rape, as in men raping dogs.

Kelsey Duckett reports for the San Pedro Beacon that on Nov. 14, 2013 in San Pedro, California, 22-year-old Christopher Alexander Caceres was arrested on a felony residential burglary charge and charges of sexual deviance, bestiality and rape of a dog.

According to neighbors and victims, Caceres had moved with his parents into his grandmother’s house, located on the 1600 block of W. O’ Farrell Street. In the time since Caceres moved into the neighborhood more than a month ago, several homes have been burglarized, and at least one dog in the neighborhood was sexually assaulted on more than one occasion.

The San Pedro Beacon received exclusive surveillance video from the dog’s owner, of Caceres climbing over a backyard wall into a property on the 1900 block of Summerland Avenue at approximately 2:22 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10.

The suspect was in the backyard until 4:40 a.m., during which time Caceres raped and sexually assaulted for over two hours the property owner’s beloved dog, an 80 lb. female Akita, who tried to get away from the rapist.

Caceres bestiality Screenshot from a Nov. 10 surveillance video showing Christopher Caceres committing bestiality on a dog.

The owner of the dog, who wishes to remain anonymous, said they had installed surveillance cameras on their property after suspecting that someone had been entering their backyard for a month: “We had found a [cigarette] lighter on the property, and on two occasions our dog had yelped. We called the police, who came to the property twice.” Early Sunday morning on Nov. 10, “I woke up because I heard something outside. Our dog greeted me and something seemed off. I didn’t know what had happened, but I saw clumps of our dog’s hair throughout the yard. I immediately went to the surveillance cameras, and I was absolutely disgusted with what I saw.”

(Warning: graphic description below)

The surveillance video showed Caceres, with short dark hair and wearing glasses, giving treats to the dog, and the dog wagging her tail, jumping up to grab treats. Then Caceres emerges from a darkened portion of the backyard without his pants on. He pins the poor dog to the ground and performs multiple sexual acts on the dog while the canine struggles to break free of his grasp.

After a police report was filed and a copy of the surveillance footage was handed over, the family took their dog to the vet, where a rape kit was performed. The vet said “this had happened before” and advised the owner to board the dog until an arrest was made.

Four days later, the family received a call from Los Angeles Detective Katsumata that Caceres had been arrested after undercover officers caught him burglarizing a home on O’ Farrell Street, a block from the dog owner’s home.

In a follow-up, the San Pedro Beacon reports that on Nov. 18, 2013, the 6-foot-2 and 160 pounds Caceres pleaded not guilty in a Long Beach courtroom to two felony charges and one misdemeanor charge brought forth by the District Attorney’s Office.

Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Paul Guthrie provided more details: Caceres is charged with the worst of offenses against an animal — felony animal cruelty — for unlawfully torturing, tormenting, and subjecting the dog to bestiality. Caceres was also charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual assault on an animal. The complaint states that Caceres “unlawfully and willfully had intercourse with a dog.”

Guthrie,who prosecutes animal cruelty cases in Long Beach, said he has never seen a case like this: “This type of case is rather uncommon. The surveillance video is extremely graphic, and unlike anything I have ever seen in my seven years.”

If convicted, Caceres could face up to nine years behind bars, six in prison on the burglary charge alone.

Lest you think bestiality is a Californian depravity, on the opposite coast in North Carolina, a 25-year-old man was arrested for raping his family dog in front of a minor child.

David Lee Carter

David Lee Carter

WTVD ABC11 reports that on November 21, 2013, David Lee Carter of Benson, NC, was arrested on several counts of crimes against nature — for having sex with his dog —  along with indecent liberties with (committing bestiality before) a child.

Search warrants say Carter “willfully and feloniously did commit the abominable and detestable crime against nature with a male canine, family pet named ‘Drake’, (one and half year old Boxer.)”

Stephanie MiklesAnd then, of course, there’s that school psychologist in Maryland, 46-year-old Stephanie Mikles, who was scheduled to be tried in October for having sex with the family’s Labrador Retriever between August 1 and August 31, 2008. While searching her house for something else, police had found 12 photos of Mikles committing bestiality.

Sadly and incredibly, bestiality is not outlawed in every of America’s 50 states. It is not illegal in Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia (see “Table of State Animal Assault Laws“).

Another “note” on Conspiracies

“Why do the nations…”

      –from Handel’s Messiah

Psalm 2 (NIV)
Why do the nations conspire 
  and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
  and the rulers band together
  against the Lord and against 
  his anointed, saying,
 “Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
  the Lord scoffs at them.
  He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
  on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
  He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.
  Ask me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
  You will break them with a rod of iron;
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

  Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
    Serve the Lord with fear
      and celebrate his rule with trembling.
  Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
  for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Still enjoying the theme? Here’s more from Handel’s Messiah.

“The Trumpet Shall Sound…”

1 Corinthians 15:52-53
For the trumpet will sound, 
  the dead will be raised imperishable, 
  and we will be changed. 
For the perishable must clothe itself 
  with the imperishable, 
    and the mortal with immortality.

Take heart dear readers,
the Lord Almighty is on His throne.
Pleasant dreams tonight. ~ TD

Regarding Conspiracy Theories

FEMA Camps, Freemasons, Illuminati, Bohemian Grove, False Flag, and all their vile cousins are terms that haunt us (me). They sometimes make sleep hard to find. Some people whistle thru the graveyard; I prefer to renew my courage with God’s word and His fellowship.

Conspiracy is nothing new.

Serpent

Serpent

Ever since the expulsion from the Garden, humans have exhibited a tendency toward conspiracy. In fact, Eve’s and Adam’s original sin was a conspiracy with the serpent, intended to challenge their Creator.

In the book of Proverbs, after the prologue and call to honor the advice of parents, the first “nuts and bolts” piece of advice is to avoid entering into conspiracy!

Proverbs 1 verses 10-19
My son, if sinful men entice you,
    do not give in to them.
  If they say, “Come along with us;
    let’s lie in wait for innocent blood,
      let’s ambush some harmless soul;
  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,
    and whole, like those who go down to the pit;
  we will get all sorts of valuable things
    and fill our houses with plunder;
   cast lots with us;
    we will all share the loot”—
my son, do not go along with them,
    do not set foot on their paths;
  for their feet rush into evil,
    they are swift to shed blood.
How useless to spread a net
    where every bird can see it!
  These men lie in wait for their own blood;
    they ambush only themselves!
  Such are the paths of all who go 
    after ill-gotten gain;
      it takes away the life 
        of those who get it.

For me, this sheds an encouraging light on those who choose to resist conspiracies.
