I find the strangest things while roaming the Internet.
Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, which introduced the character of Count Dracula of Transylvania and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy.
Stoker’s notes for Dracula show that the name of the count was originally “Count Wampyr”, but Stoker became intrigued by the name “Dracula” after reading William Wilkinson’s book An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia with Political Observations Relative to Them (London 1820). The name Dracula was the patronym (Drăculea) of the descendants of Vlad II of Wallachia, who took the name “Dracul” after being invested in the Order of the Dragon in 1431.
Dracula means “son of the devil” in Romanian.
Some historians believe that a historic figure, Transylvanian-born Vlad III Dracula, aka Vlad the Impaler, was the model for Stoker’s Count Dracula. The second son of Vlad Dracul, Vlad the Impaler massacred more than 100,000 Turkish warriors in battle. The vampire legend is said to have been inspired by his cruelty, brutality, and predilection for eating bread dipped in his victim’s blood.
The (UK) Telegraph reports, November 5, 2012, that Transylvania, synonymous with the legend of the vampire, should also be known as the ancestral home of the Prince of Wales, according to the Romanian National Tourist Office. Links between the British Royal Family and Vlad the Impaler are being exploited in an attempt to lure tourists to the eastern European country.
The Prince has made no secret of his love for Romania and is believed to travel there frequently. In 2006, he purchased a farmhouse in Viscri, a village in rural Transylvania, which is available as a guest house at certain times of the year.
Prince Charles himself appears in a video being used to promote the country in which he claims distant kinship with Vlad Tepes, the 15th–century Wallachian ruler on whom the Irish novelist Bram Stoker based his Dracula.
Prince Charles jokes in an interview first shown on satellite television in 2011: “Transylvania is in my blood. The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country.” The video climaxes with a reference to the Prince of Wales, “who can trace his ancestry back to Romania’s dark and distant past”.
According to Royal Highness, a book published in 1982 by Sir Iain Moncreiffe, Prince Charles is a great grandson 16 times removed to Vlad the Impaler, his lineage traced back through his great grandmother Queen Mary, the consort of George V, to Vlad IV, the half brother of the notorious ruler.
It has been claimed that porphyria, an iron deficiency which is thought to lie behind the vampire myth, has run in the British Royal Family. One of the symptoms of cutaneous porphyria is sensitivity to sunlight — of burning and severe pain in skin exposed to sunlight.
Here’s the family tree:
Dracul is Romanian for the dragon — a serpent used in the Bible as a symbol of the Devil.
Maybe there really is something to conspiracy theorist David Icke’s notion of a reptilian ruling elite after all. LOL. (Note: Australia recently banned Icke from entering the country for his multi-city speaking tour.)
Here’s something for a lazy Sunday which will either amuse or alarm you.
Some of you know about the assertion, begun and popularized by David Icke, 64, that walking among us is a secret group of reptilian humanoids called the Babylonian Brotherhood who controls humanity. Descendants of reptilians from the constellation Draco — a race of gods known as the Anunnaki in the Babylonian creation myth, Enûma Eliš — they live in tunnels and caverns inside the earth, walk on two legs and can shapeshift from reptilian to human form. The reptilian Anunnaki have crossbred with human beings, the breeding lines chosen for political reasons. There have been three successive reptilian-human hybrids, the third of which controls the world today and includes such prominent figures as Queen Elizabeth II, George H.W. and George W. Bush.
It is said that the hybrids sometimes give themselves away when their eyes momentarily reveal their true reptilian, non-human nature when the pupils turn into slits.
9 months ago, I did a post on homosexual British actor/comedian Stephen Fry whose left eye’s iris, in a documentary film on manic depression, suddenly turned yellow-green in color and the pupil an inverted triangle. See “Is this the infamous reptilian eye?“.
While wandering on the net this afternoon, I came across a fascinating video of an interview Miley Cyrus did with Barbara Walters in December 2013 — the Miley Cyrus who twerted obscenely and mounted an inflated penis.
While you watch the video, pay close attention to Miley’s right eye (the one on our left). This is the screenshot I took at the 0:04 mark of the video, showing her right eye’s pupil narrowing into a vertical slit:
Here’s the video:
Below is the original ABC News video of the Miley Cyrus-Barbara Walters interview, which shows that the first video in this post had not been photoshopped or altered. The interview begins at the 1:11 mark:
A rival hypothesis or alternate explanation for the reptilian eye is that there isn’t a different species of reptilians posing as humans, but that the slit pupils (and other reptilian attributes like tongue-flicking and sudden manifestations of scaly hands) are signs of demonic possession. See:
I favor the demonic possession hypothesis because there is ZERO archeological evidence for a species of reptilian-human hybrids. In the case of Miley Cyrus, demonic possession could also explain her obscene twerking, exhibitionism, and insistence on sticking out her tongue.
Thanks to a tip from FOTM reader CP, we finally have the reason why Cyrus insists on sticking out her tongue.
As you can see in the pics above, Miley identifies with Krampus — a horned demon in Austro-Hungarian folklore who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved. (Source: The Sundial)
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is a lobbying group that advocates pro-Israel policies to the Congress and Executive Branch of the United States. The current President of AIPAC is Lillian Pinkus.
One of several pro-Israel lobbying organizations in the U.S., AIPAC states that it has more than 100,000 members, seventeen regional offices, and “a vast pool of donors.” California Congressman Brad Sherman has called AIPAC “the single most important organization in promoting the U.S.-Israel alliance.” In addition, the organization has been called one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the United States. The group does not raise funds for political candidates itself, but its members raise money for candidates through PACs AIPAC helped establish and by other means.
Its critics have stated it acts as an agent of the Israeli government with a “stranglehold” on the United States Congress with its power and influence. The group has been accused of being strongly allied with the Likud party of Israel, and the Republican Party in the US, but an AIPAC spokesman has called this a “malicious mischaracterization.” The Washington Post described the perceived differences between AIPAC and J Street: “While both groups call themselves bipartisan, AIPAC has won support from an overwhelming majority of Republican Jews, while J Street is presenting itself as an alternative for Democrats who have grown uncomfortable with both Netanyahu’s policies and the conservatives’ flocking to AIPAC.”
In other words, AIPAC is the Israeli-Jewish lobby for Republicans; J Street is AIPAC’s counterpart for Democrats.
It turns out this post isn’t really such a fun post after all. Sorry 🙁
David Icke, 64, is an English writer, public speaker, and former sports broadcaster. Since the 1990s, Icke has made a name for himself as a professional conspiracy theorist with over 20 books, numeorous DVDs, and lectures in over 25 countries speaking for up to 10 hours to audiences across the political spectrum. He calls himself a “full time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world.”
At the heart of Icke’s theories is the idea that many prominent figures belong to the Babylonian Brotherhood — a group of shapeshifting reptilian humanoids who are propelling humanity toward a global New World Order fascist state. The humanoids are descendants of reptilians from the constellation Draco, a race of gods known as the Anunnaki in the Babylonian creation myth, Enûma Eliš, who live in tunnels and caverns inside the earth, walk on two legs and can shapeshift from reptilian to human form.
Icke maintains that the reptilian Anunnaki have crossbred with human beings, the breeding lines chosen for political reasons. There have been three successive reptilian-human hybrids, the third of which controls the world today and includes such prominent figures as Queen Elizabeth II, George H.W. and George W. Bush. It is said that the hybrids sometimes give themselves away when their eyes momentarily reveal their true reptilian, non-human nature.
I used to snicker at Icke’s notion of Reptilians until I came across a documentary made by Stephen Fry, 58, an openly-homosexual English actor who portrayed the corrupt master of Laketown in parts 2 and 3 of Sir Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. (Fry’s father is English, a physicist; his mother is Jewish, but Fry was not raised in a religious family. Fry has attempted suicide on a number of occasions, most recently in 2012. An atheist and “humanist,” he is against organized religions, especially the Catholic Church. In 2015, Fry married a stand-up comedian named Elliott Spencer.)
In 2006, Fry made an Emmy Award-winning documentary on manic-depression; he claims to be bi-polar. Beginning at the 49:55 mark, the camera comes in for a close-up of Fry’s face. Watch his left eye.
At the 50:06 mark, he closes, then opens both eyes. Look at his left eye at the 50:07 mark!
Here’s a screenshot at the 50:07 mark. What human eye has an inverted- triangle pupil and chartreuse-colored iris?
Fry then quickly blinks his left eye, as if something was caught in his eye and he’s trying to blink it away. The eye then returns to its former grey-blue color and round pupil.
Several weeks ago, the subject of Reptilians came up again when I published a post on UFOlogist Stephen Greer’s bizarre double row of lower teeth (see below), which prompted a YouTube video claiming that Greer is a Reptilian. (see “The stuff of nightmares: UFOlogist Dr. Stephen Greer has a double row of lower teeth“)
I was beginning to freak out until I discovered that there’s a dental condition called hyperdontia that explains Greer’s teeth.
That being said, there was still something about Greer, besides his teeth, that makes me uneasy — his penchant to smile too much; his hyper-muscularity; his mouth; the thin upper lip; the shape of his head . . . .
Then, on a tip from FOTM’s joandarc, I discovered this — Exorcists say that the demon-possessed sometimes take on the appearance of a reptile.
(1) Fr. Gary Thomas
Father Gary Thomas is the official exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose, California. In 2005, for 3½ months, Fr. Thomas received training in exorcism in Rome under veteran Italian exorcist Fr. Carmine De Filippis. Thomas’ apprenticeship is the subject of the 2010 book, The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt Bagli, as well as the 2011 Hollywood movie based on the book, The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins. In a 2012 interview with Patrick Coffin for Catholic Answers, Fr. Thomas said this about the demon-possessed:
“Sometimes their whole body language, including their face, can take on the look of a reptile or a snake, and I’ve had that happen a number of times.”
(2) Ed and Lorraine Warren
Ed and Lorraine Warren were a well-known husband-and-wife demonologist and exorcism team for over 40 years. In the 1980 book on the Warrens, The Demonologist, Gerald Daniel Brittle wrote (on page 115):
Ed speaks of the demonic spirit showing itself only rarely in preternatural form. What does the demonic spirit look like?The question is an uncomfortable one for him to answer.
“Although the spirit can project itself in any form it chooses,” says Ed, “Its appearance is an abomination, a monstrosity. To see what is really behind the phenomena is not something to be desired. To actually see the demonic is to feel ruin. What shows is something distinctly preternatural in appearance: something real enough as you can see it, but yet something not of this world.”
But what does it ultimately look like?
“Ultimately,” Ed answers with great reluctance, “it is not human. It is inhuman. It has scales. It looks…like a reptile. That’s it,” he cautions, “I won’t complete the rest of the image.”
(3) Fr. Francisco Sedano
Fr. Francisco Lopez Sedano, 80, the national coordinator emeritus of exorcism for the Archdiocese of Mexico who has conducted at least 6,000 exorcisms in 40 years of service, said he has observed possessed persons who “began to shout, to bark like a dog, to scream or writhe and who squirmed like a snake on the ground. There are a thousand forms.” (Catholic News Agency)
Of late, there are many accounts of a worldwide increase in demonic possession and demand for exorcists. Father Thomas concurs:
“It would seem there are many more people today who have dabbled—or more than dabbled—in idolatry and paganism who are both Catholic and non-Catholic than twenty, twenty-five years ago. Benedict XVI said, ‘As faith diminishes, superstition increases.’ And I would say, as a kind of corollary, ‘As faith diminishes, darkness increases.’ Because we’re all spiritual beings, we’re all searching for meaning; and if we don’t find meaning in ways that the Church would promote, we’ll go search for ourselves. And because of our flawed nature, oftentimes we’re drawn to things that, down the road, can do more harm than good.”
According to Fr. Thomas and other exorcists I’ve read, there are different levels of demonic activity. From mild to intense, the levels are:
Infestation: Demonic infestation refers more to a thing or object, than to humans. A demon or even a disembodied spirit can attach itself to a house. It could be because a satanic ritual was performed there, or a satanic cult existed there for a long time.
Oppression: Demonic oppression is a physical attack on the person. It can be kind of depression, where the person is filled with anxiety and very often there’s a sense of despair or despondency.
Obsession: The person is overcome with or obsessed with the idea of Satan being in their life. In both oppression and obsession, the afflicted person can function “where you wouldn’t necessarily be able to detect anything demonic going on unless they disclose certain things to you.” According to Fr. Thomas, a curse done by a competent practitioner of the occult or the satanic could create an oppression or an obsession. In cases of oppression or obsession, the exorcist has “to go in and break the curse before you can remove the demon.”
Possession: Sometimes called “involuntary possession,” demonic possession is “the most extraordinary and the rarest degree,” wherein the person’s will is compromised and their functionality is limited, to the extent that they may not even be able to take care of their own physical needs or make decisions on their own. Fr. Thomas said he had witnessed only a few cases of full possession — “a couple of them in Rome and one here” in the U.S.
Complete or “voluntary” possession: Also known as “integration,” this is when the person accepts the demon and so does not want the attention of exorcists. Fr. Malachi Martin called this “perfect possession” — a frightening phenomenon about which little is written, except this account.
According to Fr. Thomas, the following are the “classic” signs of demonic possession:
Rolling of the eyes.
An aversion to the sacred, such as to the crucifix, the Eucharist, or a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mother because, in the words of Fr. Thomas, she is “the first disciple, the first to say ‘yes’ in the Gospels … the carrier of the Word. From the point of view of an exorcist, Satan and the demons hate the Blessed Mother in a very different kind of way than they hate Christ. And very often the Hail Mary can be more powerful than the prayers of the rite of exorcism.”
A sensation of burning when the person comes into contact with holy water or a crucifix.
Knowledge of hidden things that the person has no reason to know, either about the exorcist or a situation or the future.
Ability to speak in a language they have no competency in.
A change in the voice.
Very extreme facial contortions that are not just some strange thing the person does with their mouth or tongue, but “a physiognomic change” — “almost a temporary bone structure shift” — such as taking “on the look of a reptile or a snake”. Fr. Thomas said: “I know that seems off the charts, but I’ve actually seen that in people’s faces, where there is a change in the contour of their face. I wish I could describe it better, but I’ve seen that happen a number of times.”
“Animation of legs and arms during the [exorcism] prayers, where they’re using their limbs to either intimidate me or put their hands in the form of fists with every intention of using them to injure me or the people around them.”
Fr. Thomas said 80% of the people who come to him have been sexual abuse victims, usually as a child, and that traumas, including attempted suicide, as well as the wide availability of pornography on the Internet, “open doorways to the demonic”.
Matt Berman reports for National Journal, April 2, 2013, that a new poll by Public Policy Polling found that 13% of registered American voters surveyed believe the POS is the Antichrist, while another 13% are not sure.
The poll of 1,247 registered American voters was conducted from March 27-30, 2013, through automated telephone interviews. The margin of error for the overall sample is +/-2.8%.
