Obama dressed as Baphomet?

The Baphomet was first drawn and popularized in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Lévi in his book, Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic) — a winged, horned, androgynous, humanoid goat with breasts and phallus. (See “The Devil is transgender”)

Levi called his image the Baphomet — “The Sabbatic Goat” and “The Goat of Mendes.” Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the Rider-Waite Tarot image of the Devil. The Baphomet goat, together with the downward-pointed pentagram, was adopted as the official symbol — called the Sigil of Baphomet — of the Church of Satan and continues to be used among Satanists.

Yesterday, an art illustrator named AnnaMarie Hope uploaded to her Instagram account @everysilversea a pic of what appears to be Barack Obama dressed as Baphomet, standing next to Artur Davis.

Note: Artur Davis was a national co-chair for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign; a U.S. Congressman (D-Alabama) from 2003 to 2011; and a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Alabama in the 2010 election.

Below are the Obama Baphomet pic (on the left) next to a pic of Obama (right), for comparison.

Those who saw the pic on Hope’s Instagram clearly recognized the Baphomet dude as Obama:

kellygil18: “What’s with your Obama pic?”

unbearableghostbear: “Yeah you got some ‘splainin’ to do about that Obama pic.”

Hope quickly took down the pic, claiming she’d received “too much hate & not enough support”.

Jay Greenberg of NeonNettle says the Obama Baphomet image is not a photoshop:

To check if the image has been digitally altered from another photo, the first thing to do is is do a reverse image search to see if the original image appeared online or if there ever was an original image. After uploading the image to Google image search and Tinyeye, the photo pulls zero results from either service, meaning, if it was altered from another image, then the original image has never been uploaded to the internet, which seems unlikely.

If the image has been photoshopped as some may suggest, then it would require a very high skill set in image manipulation, that would go way beyond the typical prank image levels. It’s also unlikely that Hope would have such professional skills without a mention of it anywhere. The fact that Miss Hope doesn’t appear to have obtained this image elsewhere, and that she couldn’t have faked the image, suggests that she took the photo herself.

11 years ago, Adrenochrome was featured in UK TV series ‘Lewis’

Last November, our Trail Dust published a post, “Adrenochrome and Elite Vampirism,” about AltMedia rumors of elites kidnapping children not just for pedophilia, but to kill them for adrenochrome.

Needless to say, ingesting a human’s adrenochrome is a form of cannibalism.

At the time, cautiously skeptical, I wrote this comment:

Adrenochrome is a chemical compound produced by the oxidation of adrenaline. (Oxidation is the loss of electrons during a reaction by a molecule, atom or ion.)

Every credible source I’ve read on adrenochrome says its effects may be hallucinogenic and psychotropic, and may trigger psychotic reactions such as thought disorder, derealization, and euphoria. Nothing on adrenochrome being rejuvenating or life-extending. Which then beggars the question of why the “elites” would consume adrenochrome.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrenochrome
http://www.chemistrylearner.com/adrenochrome.html

Since the buying and selling of adrenochrome is legal in the United States (it can even be bought online here), the question must be asked why would the “elites” resort to killing children for it? . . .

And if adrenochrome indeed slows the aging process, you can be sure Big Pharma would have manufactured adrenochrome pills to sell to us.

Going by the decrepit appearances of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros, whatever “anti-aging” thing they’re ingesting sure isn’t working.

To which, Trail Dust responded:

My thesis is that the chase for a drug rush from adrenochrome is entirely separate from the quest for rejuvenation. I believe the desire for the fountain of youth is expressed in the evil harvesting of “long” telomeres from aborted or murdered children. And the lust for physical power is directly associated with harvested adrenochrome.

So we have a person in power seeking to reverse aging with baby telomeres, and we have a person seeking a thrill fulfilling it by drinking blood heavily infused with adrenochrome. Sometimes that’s the same person, sometimes the same sacrificed baby providing both substances.

When I was a little child, a friend and I stumbled into a trap set by evil local boys (one is still thought to be genuinely evil 50+ years later) in our neighborhood. We were walking through the woods near our homes when my friend was suddenly hoisted upside down into the air by a noose on his ankle. I immediately identified this as a death trap and burst out towards the nearest safety, which was my friend’s mother’s house. I have never been a super fast runner, even thought then and now I have been athletic. But at that moment my legs moved at seemingly supernatural speed. The enemy kid chasing me could have easily caught me under normal circumstances, but my speed at that moment was beyond anything I have ever experienced. Now, think of a Hollywood actor or producer finding access to a sip of blood from my adrenal gland at that moment of maximal terror at a very young age (I think I was about 7 years old); think of nearly unlimited physical speed for a flight or ferocity for a fight.

People without a good conscience might accept the moral evil for the personal gain. And all that is still separate from the seeking of power through devils by committing the sacrifice of children (the very spiritual crime that finally brought the wrath of God down on the jews).

And my response:

Since it is legal to buy and sell adrenochrome in the U.S. (you can even buy it online), then why the need to obtain adrenochrome by killing children? That makes no sense.

It turns out that eleven years ago, long before Andrenochrome became the stuff of AltMedia chatter, the drug was featured in second episode of Season One of the TV series, Lewis, which was first aired in Britain on February 18, 2007. [Inspector] Lewis is a spin-off from the popular Inspector Morse series.

In Episode Two, “Whom the Gods Would Destroy,” written by Danny Boyle,  beginning at about the 1:16:50 mark, DI Lewis and DS Hathaway were searching a suspect’s apartment, in a case concerning the murders of two members of an Oxford University club from 30 years ago — the Sons of the Twice Born (a reference to the Greek god Dionysius). Those murders harken back to the murder of a prostitute 30 years ago by the Oxford club.

In the suspect’s apartment, Hathaway found a note-pad with the imprint of the word “Adrenochrome”.

Hathaway explains: “It’s a drug, a very special drug found in a very special place. To harvest adrenochrome, you have to go to Hell itself. You’ve got to murder for it.

The scene then cuts to Lewis and Hathaway interrogating the female suspect.

Lewis: “Do you know what adrenochrome is? . . . Adrenochrome is a drug, Tina. And Platt and his crew (referring to the Oxford students club), they thought drugs could work wonders for them, couldn’t get enough of them. And how they wanted to try adrenochrome, but try it in its purest form which, myth has it, gives the highest of highs. But the thing about it is, in its purest form adrenochrome comes from the human adrenal gland. When you remove that, the donor dies.

It is said that director Stanley Kubrick’s death, at age 70, from a massive heart attack on March 7, 1999, mere days after submitting a final cut to Warner Brothers of his last movie, Eyes Wide Shut, was the Illuminati’s retribution for Kubrick revealing their secrets in the movie. (See “Eyes Wide Shut: Occult Symbolism“)

Here’s a video showing the Illuminati symbology employed by Kubrick in Eyes Wide Shut:

Kubrick was not being far-fetched.

In my November 2012 post, “There really are sex orgies of the global elite,” I quoted the New York Times — that the criminal charges against former IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn:

“offered a keyhole view into a clandestine practice in certain powerful circles of French society: secret soirees with lawyers, judges, police officials, journalists and musicians that start with a fine meal and end with naked guests and public sex with multiple partners. […]

The exclusive orgies called “parties fines” — lavish Champagne affairs costing around $13,000 each — were organized as a roving international circuit from Paris to Washington by businessmen seeking to ingratiate themselves with Mr. Strauss-Kahn.”

Then there’s that sinister 1972 masked ball thrown by the Rothchilds in the UK. Among the creepy pics of the ball is this photo of a table centerpiece comprised of mutilated baby dolls. Was that a hint at child sacrifice?

If Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut indeed is fact-based, then we have reason to suspect that the reference to adrenochrome in the Lewis episode “Whom the Gods Would Destroy” is also fact-based.

‘Home Alone’ actor Macaulay Culkin is a satanist: Website invites readers to be one with the Devil

The Baphomet was first drawn and popularized in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Lévi in his book, Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic) — a winged, horned, androgynous, humanoid goat with breasts and phallus. (See “The Devil is transgender”)

Levi called his image the Baphomet — “The Sabbatic Goat” and “The Goat of Mendes.” Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the Rider-Waite Tarot image of the Devil. The Baphomet goat, together with the downward-pointed pentagram, was adopted as the official symbol — called the Sigil of Baphomet — of the Church of Satan and continues to be used among Satanists. [Source: Wikipedia]

Former “Home Alone” child actor Macaulay Culkin, now 37 and a supposed recovered drug-addict, has a new website with a childlike, cutsey name — Bunny Ears. On its “About” page is this description:

We are a lifestyle brand founded by Pagemaster star Macaulay Culkin.

On the front page of Bunny Ears is an invitation to a “mindfulness exercise,” written by a Matt Cohen. The reader is first asked to empty and render him/herself an “empty vessel”; then the Baphomet — the Devil — is invited in with an incantation, followed by a blood-letting ritual to seal the pact:

I thought it might be nice to celebrate the website’s launch with a small mindfulness exercise; a setting of intentions as it were. And because you and I are basically the same, it might be fun if you were to help each other along the process.

To set an intention, we’ll need to first clear our minds of all extraneous thought. We need to make our very core an open and waiting vessel for the knowledge and enlightenment we are set to receive from the sacred depths.

Close your eyes and listen to a few seconds of this, then open your eyes:

Think of a key phrase; a mantra if you will. Something that you can return to throughout the day and that will keep you balanced and on your spiritual path. For instance; I often go with a repeating call of “Lucifuge Rofocale,” which is just some silly thing I like to say. What is your mantra? Some fun suggestions: “Naberius”, ‘Rusalka” or “Ukobach”. Whatever feels right for you and helps you set a clear focus.

Now that we’ve set our intention, let’s picture an idyllic spot; a place that really makes you feel whole. Personally, I like to transport myself to a beautiful beach; perhaps the black shores of the lovely Cocytus river.

But you do you! It could be a lovely meadow in Tartarus, taking in the night that has been described as “So dark that it grows the roots of the earth and the unharvested sea.”

Now take yourself to the fantasy spot in your mind, and with me – repeat the following phrase out loud:

“The light and the teacher in me recognizes the void and the mongrel in you. Agios O, Baphomet, Agios O Baphomet. Namaste.”

[Note: “Agios” is the Greek word for “holy”]

And now- to seal in our exercise, we, like Legion before us, must prove that we are worthy in his great eyes; his monstrous, burning, all-seeing eyes.

Baphomet

Look deep into his eyes. You are his.

His gaze permanently kept agape, so that he may judge us all, with his ever-knowing ferocity.

So you’re gonna wanna grab a thumbtack (or an exacto knife if you’re the crafty type), and with your intention in mind, and the clearest and darkest of hearts, let your fluids co-mingle with the very terra firma that our dark lord reigns from under. And remember: just a prick. A little blood goes a long way in terms of ritualistic bloodletting. And you’re going to lose a lot of blood.

Bind your blood to the flesh of the earth. Let it bathe the soil.

But it’s the concept, really; more about the quality of thought than the quantity of plasma.

Take a deep breath. Take another. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it until you see the divine shadow start to creep in and welcome you into Adversary’s open maw. The dark one has been waiting for you. His patience running ever thinner. His wait is over. Now release. And know that you are his… and that we are one. Forever.

Welcome to Bunny Ears!

Hollywood rumors say Macauley Culkin, when he was a child actor, had been sexually molested. With that in mind, it is noteworthy that among the merchandise hawked on Bunny Ears is a bunny-pizza pin, reminiscent of Pizzagate:

NXIVM is also a *child* sex-trafficking cult

It turns out NXIVM (pronounced “Nexium”), from whom the Dalai Lama accepted a $1 million “payment” to speak at one of its events, isn’t “just” a sex cult that branded and enslaved willing women, the cult also engaged in child sex trafficking. See:

The Daily Mail reports, April 23, 2018, that NXIVM founder and leader Keith Raniere, 57, didn’t just brand and molest adult women, he had “sexual relationships” with at least two minor females, aged 15 and 12.

Raniere didn’t have “sexual relationships with” the girls. He raped them — which is what the law calls sex with underage minors.

According to the Complaint and Affidavit in Support of Arrest Warrant that was filed on February 14, which stipulated the allegations against Raniere and his second-in-command, Smallville actress Allison Mack, 35:

“the defendant [Raniere] had repeated sexual encounters with multiple teenage girls in the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s.  In one instance, the defendant met a fifteen-year-old girl while he was in his 20s and had repeated sexual contact with her. In another instance, the defendant met a twelve-year-old girl whose mother worked for the defendant and began tutoring her. Shortly thereafter, the defendant began having regular sexual intercourse with her, including at his home where he lived with multiple adult sexual partners.”

Last March, Mexico extradicted Raniere to the United States from the villa in which he had been hiding for the past 5 months. Actress Allison Mack then took over as interim cult leader, until she herself was arrested on April 20, 2018. Mack had recruited women into NXIVM. Both her initials and Raniere’s were branded on the pubic area of women recruited into the cult as their willing sex slaves.

If found guilty of human trafficking and sexual slavery, both Raniere and Mack face a lifetime jail sentence.

The Daily Mail also confirms what White House insider Q Anon had intimated on April 20 — that Mack “is now looking to make a deal”:

Below is the unsealed indictment of Allison Mack, stating the three charges for which she was arrested:

  1. Sex trafficking of children or by force, fraud or coercion.
  2. Conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of children or by force, fraud or coercion.
  3. Attempt to establish peonage, slavery, involuntary servitude, human trafficking.

Unsealed indictment of Allison Mack sex trafficking

In addition to actresses (Mack, Kristin Kreuk, Linda Evans), Seagram heiresses (Sara and Clare Bronfman), business moguls (Richard Branson, BET co-founder Sheila Johnson, Stephen Cooper of Enron), family members of Mexican presidents Vicente Fox and Carlos Salinas), and politicians (former U.S. surgeon general Antonia Novello), two new names have been added to the list of “celebrities” who are devotees/associates of NXIVM:

  1. Arkansas lawyer Richard Mays, a longtime Clinton friend and fundraiser whom Bill Clinton appointed to the Arkansas Supreme Court, reportedly had “intensive classes with Raniere”.
  2. Doug Rutnik, father of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) who championed the #MeToo movement, was once a lobbyist for NXIVM and Raniere.

Devotees of NXIVM paid thousands of dollars for seminars, wore colored sashes denoting their “rank,” spouted Scientology-like jargon, and literally bowed before leader Keith Raniere — whom they call “The Vanguard.”

NXIVM sex cult actress Allison Mack arrested; naming names

True to his word, President Trump is going after sex traffickers.

Two days ago, on April 20, 2018, federal prosecutors announced that actress Allison Mack, 35, best known for playing Superman’s platonic friend in the TV series Smallville, has been arrested on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor for her role in the NXIVM sex-slave cult.

“The Devil may appear in the vesture of the Angel of Light.”
–2 Corinthians 11:14

NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”) is a sinister, marketing organization in upstate New York which offers self-help personal and professional development seminars. Founded by former computer programmer Keith Raniere in Albany, NY, NXIVM’s president is Nancy Salzman. The two are referred to, respectively, as “Vanguard” and “Prefect”.

More than 12,000 people have attended NXIVM’s seminars between its founding in 1998 and 2010. Among its clients are notables such as actresses Linda Evans (always a sucker for cults) and Smallville‘s Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk; UK mogul Richard Branson; BET co-founder Sheila Johnson; former U.S. surgeon general Antonia Novello; Stephen Cooper of Enron; Ana Cristina Fox, daughter of former Mexican president and rabid anti-Trumper Vicente Fox; and Seagram heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman who have plowed millions of dollars into NXIVM. In addition, the director of NXIVM in Mexico is Emiliano Salinas, son of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas.

In 2009, NXIUM gained even more respectability when the Dalai Lama was paid $1 million to travel to America to speak at a NXIVM event in Albany, New York, which NXIUM trumpeted as an endorsement and “victory”.

But former members have exposed NXIVM as a sex cult. According to an exposé by Barry Meier for The New York Times, members of a “secret sisterhood” of 70-80 women within NXIVM, including Allison Mack, are branded with Raniere’s initials (KR) as his “slaves”, blackmailed, and beaten with paddles. Women who wish to join the “sisterhood” are required to provide nude photos or other potentially damaging information about themselves, all the better for future blackmail.

Allison Mack’s arrest came less than a month after NXIVM leader Keith Raniere himself was arrested on the same charges of sex trafficking and forced labor at a luxury villa in Mexico where he had been hiding out.

As recounted by Priscilla DeGregory and Ruth Brown for Page Six:

Mack, 35, was Raniere’s direct “slave” and had a sexual relationship with him — but also acted as a “master” to other slaves, who were forced to have sex with Raniere and get his initials burned into their pubic region with a cauterizing pen, according to the criminal complaint.

As the women were being branded like cattle, Mack allegedly placed her hands on their chests and told them to “feel the pain” and to “think of [their] master,” prosecutors say.

The actress first lured the women into the secret society within Nxivm known as “The Vow” — and cajoled them into providing “collateral” like embarrassing photos and statements to use as blackmail, federal prosecutors allege.

She then allegedly groomed the slaves for sex with Raniere — ordering them to adhere to extremely restrictive diets, refrain from removing their pubic hair, and to stay celibate, according to court documents.

She also forced them to pose naked for photos — “including on one occasion close-up pictures of their vaginas” — which were given to Raniere and also used as collateral, the feds charge.

Mack and other slave “masters” allegedly made their slaves participate in “readiness” drills, requiring them to respond to requests at any time of the day or night so they were “seriously sleep-deprived.”

One of her slaves became so thin and tired that she stopped getting periods….

Mack was last seen chasing after Raniere in Mexico as cops hauled him away.

Both face at least 15 years behind bars and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Interestingly, the last thing Mack tweeted before her arrest was a pic of satanist Marina Abramovic — the so-called “performance artist” whose “spirit cooking” is a form of cannibalism.

According to White House insider Q Anon, Mack is singing like a canary:

Will Ferrell performs Satanic ritual on live TV

Actor/comedian Will Ferrell, 50, is a Hollywood success, with an estimated net worth of $100 million.

In 2011, Ferrell and other Hollywood stars (including Pamela Anderson) attended the annual gala of the Museum of Contemporary Art, in which participants simulated cannibalism by eating cakes molded into life-size images of “spirit cooking” artist Marina Abramovic and pop singer Debbie Harry.

The long dining tables had holes cut out, from which popped the heads of staffers.

On April 3, 2018, Ferrell appeared on an obscure talk show, the Chris Gethard Show, which began in 2011 on the public-access Manhattan Neighborhood Network and, after 7 years, now airs on cable truTV. (Like you, I’ve never heard of the Chris Gethard Show. Nor have I ever watched or even known about truTV.)

From TruTV:

In Season 3, episode 19, “Executive Producer, Will Ferrell performs a cleansing over Chris with a mission to achieve monumental show ratings success.”

The episode begins with Ferrell chatting with a caller, making non sequitur references to “pizza” — the pedophile code-word for young girls.

See “Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails

Then comes the satanic ritual.

Gethard is stripped down to his shorts, and drinks a disgusting fecal-colored liquid. Minions in hooded body suits smear blood on his torso and face. Then the minions throw dirt on Gethard.

Ferrell asks the masked and hooded audience to repeat after him:

“You are nothing! Increase the numbers! This is not art!”

Ferrell orders Gethard to step up to a mirror and say “I love you, emu.”

Gethard is lying on the ground. The minions drag him up, as someone screams “Bring him to daddy!”.

Ferrell grabs Gethard’s head and lifts him up, saying, “Come up, my child. Come up.” Pointing to his chest, Ferrell says, “Suckle from my womb. This is the milk of strong, consistent high ratings.”

There is nothing funny about Ferrell’s skit.

It was a satanic ritual, disguised as a comedy skit.

Update (April 12):

Thanks to a tip from FOTM reader Bob Denver, we have Chris Gethard’s own acknowledgement that he is a satanist, which he wrote on Reddit and subsequently deleted — but not before it was captured by alert netizen TheHighBlatman and uploaded to imgur:

Dalai Lama accepted $1M bribe to endorse NXIVM sex cult

NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”) is a marketing organization that offers self-help personal and professional development seminars. Founded in 1998 by former computer programmer Keith Rainere in Albany, NY, NXIVM’s president is Nancy Salzman, the two are referred to, respectively, as “Vanguard” and “Prefect”.

More than 12,000 people have attended NXIVM’s seminars between its founding in 1998 and 2010. The organization claims to have worked with more than 16,000 people in 30 countries. Among NXIVM’s clients are notables such as actresses Linda Evans (always a sucker for cults) and Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack of the Smallville TV series; UK mogul Richard Branson; BET co-founder Sheila Johnson; former U.S. surgeon general Antonia Novello; Stephen Cooper of Enron; Ana Cristina Fox, daughter of former Mexican president and rabid anti-Trumper Vicente Fox; and Seagram heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman who have plowed millions of dollars into NXIVM. In addition, the director of NXIVM in Mexico is Emiliano Salinas, son of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas.

But former members have exposed NXIVM as a sex cult. According to an  exposé by Barry Meier for The New York Times, members of a “secret sisterhood” of 70-80 women within NXIVM, including actress Allison Mack, are branded with Raniere’s initials (KR), referred to as “slaves”, blackmailed, and beaten with paddles. Women who wish to join the “sisterhood” are required to provide nude photos or other potentially damaging information about themselves.

NXIVM sex cult branding

Ryan Parry reports for the Daily Mail, January 24, 2018, that none other than the Dalai Lama was paid $1 million to travel to America to speak at a NXIVM event in Albany, New York in 2009. Attended by 3,000 of the cult’s followers, the Dalai Lama’s appearance was trumpeted by NXIVM as an endorsement and a “victory”. The Dalai Lama even honored cult leader Keith Raniere with a khata — a traditional Tibetan ceremonial scarf that symbolizes purity and compassion.

Daily Mail uncovered how NXIVM plotted to get the Dalai Lama to speak at the event, a scheme that involved Seagram heiress Sara Bronfman and Lama Tenzin Dhonden, the Dalai Lama’s effective ambassador (“personal emissary of peace”) to the U.S., who are said to have had an illicit affair. Tibetan monks are supposed to be celibate.

Dhonden arranged for Sara Bronfman and her sister Clare, as well as NXIVM president Nancy Salzman, to meet with the Dalai Lama in Dharmsala, India. There the women offered to make a contribution of more than $1 million, and invited “His Holiness” to New York to meet NXIVM leader Raniere.

However, after local media in Albany, NY, reported that the Dalai Lama was planning a four-day trip to the U.S. visiting prestigious colleges alongside “cult” leader Raniere, the Dalai Lam canceled the visit, concerned over the negative media attention. The Bronfman sisters flew back to India, this time with NXIVM leader Raniere in tow, to convince the Dalai Lama the press coverage was inaccurate. The Dalai Lama then agreed to attend a one-day NXIVM event as part of an already scheduled trip to the U.S. to visit Harvard University in Massachusetts.

On her blog, Sara Bronfman called the Dalai Lama’s change of mind a success: “After an onslaught of negative articles and powerful local personalities voicing their lack of support for his proposed visit, His Holiness postponed until the truth became evident. In the end the truth prevailed, but in the process we lost participants, money and good faith.”

In a YouTube video of the event held at the Palace Theater in Albany on May 6, 2009, the Dalai Lama was asked by someone in the audience about his canceled visit. “His Holiness” said about Raniere and NXIVM: “If you have done something wrong, you must accept, you must admit, change, make correction. If you have not done (anything wrong), make clear all these allegations (are untrue), truthfully, honestly, openly, transparently.”

Having said that, however, Raniere was called on stage and the Dalai Lama draped the khata — a symbol of purity and compassion — around the cult leader’s neck.

In February 2018, the Dalai Lama Trust removed Dhonden as its executive secretary, amid accusations of corruption, pending an investigation. Nor is there any report that the Dalai Lama has returned the $1+million “contribution”.
