Aaron Russo on Rockefeller Plans of One World Government and RFID Chip

In this revealing video, the patriarch of the Peace Movement in America, Aaron Russo, details how Nick Rockefeller of the Rockefeller banking family asked Aaron to join the Council on Foreign Relations. Aaron Russo also said Rockefeller told him about plans they have for a One World government where everyone gets an RFID chip. Aaron explains that Rockefeller told him a year before the 9-11 attacks occurred that a major event would occur to cause America to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, and a fake war on terror would occur designed specifically to allow the US gov't to strip away the rights of citizens.

US Apologises for Scientists Deliberately Giving Mental Patients STD's

America faces global outrage after it apologised for deliberately infecting patients in a mental hospital with STDs in science experiments.
Government officials provided prostitutes to patients in the Guatamalen institute from 1946 to 1948 to to test if the relatively new drug penicillin could prevent them catching STDs.
None of the tests proved successful and the details were hidden in medial archives for decades.

But medical historian Susan Reverby from Wellesley College in Massachusetts unearthed the shocking details of the tests while researching archives in Pennsylvania. 
Around 696 men and women were  exposed to syphilis and gonorrhea during the research. If the patients failed to contract the illnesses they were deliberately inoculated.
President Barack Obama rang Guatemala's president, Alvaro Colom, to apologize when he became aware of the tests on Friday. Hilary Clinton had called to apologize the night before.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said: 'Obviously this is shocking, it's tragic, it's reprehensible. It's tragic and the U.S. by all means apologizes to all those who were impacted.'
Arturo Valenzuela, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, said that in her conversation with the Guatemalan president, Clinton expressed 'her personal outrage and deep regret that such reprehensible research could occur'.
Guatemalan Embassy official Fernando de la Cerda said his country hadn't known anything about the experiment until Clinton called to apologise on Thursday night.
'We appreciate this gesture from the USA, acknowledging the mistake and apologising, he said. 'This must not affect the bilateral relationship.'
Miss Reverby made the discovery last year while combing the archived records of Dr.John Cutler, a government researcher involved in the infamous Tuskegee study that from 1932 to 1972 tracked 600 black men in Alabama who had syphilis without ever offering them treatment.
She found that Cutler also led the Guatemala project which is believed to have been on a much wider and more worrying scale.
In Tuskegee, scientists knew African-American sharecroppers had become infected with syphilis but withheld treatment to track the progression of the disease.

But in Guatemala, prisoners, soldiers, and inmates in mental asylums were willfully infected, sometimes by using prostitutes provided by the scientists or sometimes by pouring the germs onto skin abrasions the researchers caused.
A total of 696 men and women were exposed to syphilis or in some cases gonorrhea through jail visits by prostitutes or, when that didn't infect enough people, by deliberately inoculating them. They were offered penicillin, but it wasn't clear how many were infected and how many were successfully treated.
Miss Reverby revealed the disturbing find to health professionals at a conference in May. She later provided her findings to the government the next month resulting in Friday's apology and she has since posted them on her website.

She said: 'I was just completely blown away. I was floored.
'I expected to find something on Tuskegee. There was nothing. What he left behind were these records from the Guatemala study. 
'That was all he left behind. Why he did this, I have no idea. Why would you leave this?'
Reverby said she did not publicise her findings sooner because no one was in immediate danger and because, unlike Tuskegee, most of the subjects were treated. 
She added: 'It’s not like I could have stopped something that was happening now.'
Strict regulations today make clear that it is unethical to experiment on people without their consent, and require special steps for any work with such vulnerable populations as prisoners. But such regulations did not exist in the 1940s.
The U.S. government has ordered two independent investigations to uncover exactly what happened in Guatemala and to make sure current bioethics rules are adequate. They will be led by the prestigious Institute of Medicine and the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues.
Dr. Arthur Caplan, a University of Pennsylvania bioethicist said: 'We've made some obvious moral progress.
'The sad legacy of past unethical experiments is that they still shape who it is that we can get to trust medical researchers.'

Armageddon Fortress May Hold Keys to History

MEGIDDO, Israel -- The Book of Revelation says the biblical fortress of Armageddon will be the site of an apocalyptic battle between good and evil at the end of time. Scientists believe it could also be the place where time begins -- at least for archaeology.

In a groundbreaking new project, scholars are using the rich archaeological remains that soar more than 50 feet above the Jezreel Valley in northern Israel to synchronize the clocks of the ancient world and create the first definitive calendar of human history.

Armageddon: Can Modern Science Solve Time Riddle?

The ruins atop Megiddo in Israel may look like just another hill, but the mound is man-made, containing the remains of 29 cities built one on top of the other from 3,000 to 300 B.C.
The word "Armageddon" comes from the HebrewHar Megiddo, which means mountain of Megiddo, where Revelation says the final battle will take place. To the untrained observer, the modern-day site of Megiddo looks like one more hill in the Carmel mountain range near Haifa. But the vast mound is entirely man-made, containing the remains of 29 separate cities built one on top of the other by a succession of civilizations from 3,000 to 300 B.C.

More than a century of excavations has revealed a complex network of houses, stables, temples and palaces protected by massive fortifications and watered by two natural springs.
The treasures discovered at the site have posed as many questions as they have answered about the history of the ancient world. A vast, centuries-old temple deep within the mound is the largest yet discovered from that period in the Levant but its purpose and rituals -- including several large, perfectly round black stone altars just a few inches high -- are unknown.

It was around this time that stone inscriptions and records on clay tablets and papyrus began to record human history in the area. The Bible, the most monumental work of all, emerged during this period. Early archaeologists used the Bible as a guide, relating their finds to events described there and allocating them to biblical figures.

The legendary Israeli archaeologist Yigael Yadin identified one impressive Iron Age gateway as the remains of a city built by Solomon in the 10th century B.C., but the current director of the excavation, Israel Finkelstein of Tel Aviv University, rocked the scholarly world when he declared the remains to be at least 100 years later. Finkelstein's theory threw the traditional view of the Davidic and Solomonic kingdoms into disarray and cast doubt on whether the biblical giants had ever truly been "kings" at all.

Now Finkelstein, together with Tel Aviv University physicist Eli Piazetsky, is spearheading an international effort to settle the chronology once and for all. A scientific conference at Megiddo, "Synchronizing Clocks at Armageddon," launched a project to analyze 10 separate Iron Age destruction layers using four state-of-the-art scientific techniques: radiocarbon dating, optical luminescence, archaeo-magnetism and rehydroxilation -- a new method pioneered in Britain within the last two years.

Megiddo is the only place in the world with so many destruction layers -- archaeological strata resulting from a calamity such as a fire, earthquake or conquest -- that resulted from a specific event in history.

Finkelstein told AOL News that the site provides "a very dense, accurate and reliable ladder for the dating of the different monuments and the layers."

"These destruction layers can serve as anchors for the entire system of dating," Finkelstein said. "Megiddo is the only site which has 10 layers with radiocarbon results for the period 1300 to 800 B.C.E."

Scientists hope that by analyzing the archaeological strata they can nail each layer to a specific year or decade, using the physical data from Megiddo to set the clocks of history and create a definitive timeline that can be used as a basis for accurately dating all archaeological sites.

The Megiddo Expedition

It's an ambitious undertaking and one with profound implications for historical scholarship. A definitive timeline for the Levant could also unlock the secrets of ancient Greece, where specific historical dates before about 600 B.C. are basically guesswork. One conundrum that has perplexed scholars for years is a major discrepancy between the dating of sites in the Levant and those with similar pottery and other artifacts in the Aegean Basin.

"For many years the traditional dating of strata in the Levant were about 100 years earlier than that of the Aegean. There was similar pottery that we date to the 10th century and they date to the ninth. The question was, who's right?" said Aren Maeir of Bar-Ilan University, director of the excavation at Tell es-Safi, believed to be the ancient city of Gath, home of Goliath.

"The problem is that the Aegean does not have an independent chronology for the Iron Age," Finkelstein said. In the absence of a historical record, dating of pottery from ancient Greece has relied on Greek pottery found in Middle East excavations. New doubts cast by Finkelstein about the dating of sites in Israel have thrown the ancient Greece timeline into further disarray.

The new project will take samples from Megiddo and other sites where dates are fairly certain and subject them to a battery of four different scientific tests:

Radiocarbon, or carbon-14 dating, measures the decline of a naturally occurring radioisotope to fix the date it was deposited at the site. It can be used for animal remains, plants and even olive pits. But it cannot determine the age of inorganic material like pottery; some materials, including wood, can give false results; and it requires a complex statistical calibration that on 3,000-year-old items produces inaccuracies of up to 300 years.

Archaeo-magnetism measures changes in the Earth's magnetic intensity and magnetic north over centuries to date pottery and cooking ovens. Optical luminescence is in its infancy. It measures the effect of the sun's rays on quartz particles to determine when certain minerals were last exposed to sunlight.

Rehydroxilation is a method recently developed in Britain that measures the amount of moisture absorbed from the atmosphere by oven-fired clay. Experiments suggest that it can accurately date bricks and pottery from 50 to 2,000 years old. The team has taken some 5,000-year-old pottery samples back to the lab at Manchester University to see if they get similar results.

They believe the method has the potential to become as important for ceramics as radiocarbon dating is for organic materials.

"Making the various tools for dating archaeological finds more accurate is very important," said Maeir, whose own excavation is part of the project. But he warned that rehydroxilation may not provide magic answers. Like carbon-14 dating, it involves a statistical manipulation that is likely to result in similar disputes between scholars.

"If they did reach a clear-cut model which would be agreed upon by the overall majority, it could have a whole slew of historical implications," he said. "It changes your understanding of what was going on from a political, from an economic point of view at these various sites. This could in theory have very broad implications for our ability to interpret the historical scenarios."

420 Banks Demand 'One World Currency'

excerpted from Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert

The Institute of International Finance, a group that represents 420 of the world’s largest banks and finance houses, has issued yet another call for a one-world global currency, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.

“A core group of the world’s leading economies need to come together and hammer out an understanding,” Charles Dallara, the Institute of International Finance’s managing director, told the Financial Times.
An IIF policy letter authored by Dallara and dated Oct. 4 made clear that global currency coordination was needed, in the group’s view, to prevent a looming currency war.
“The narrowly focused unilateral and bilateral policy actions seen in recent months – including many proposed and actual measures on trade, currency intervention and monetary policy – have contributed to worsening underlying macroeconomic imbalances,” Dallara wrote. “They have also led to growing protectionist pressures as countries scramble for export markets as a source of growth.”
Dallard encouraged a return to the G-20 commitment to utilize International Monetary Fund special drawing rights to create an international one-world currency alternative to the U.S. dollar as a new standard of foreign-exchange reserves.
Likewise, a July United Nations report called for the replacement of the dollar as the standard for holding foreign-exchange reserves in international trade with a new one-world currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.
The 176-page report, titled “United Nations World Economic and Social Survey 2010,” was issued at a high-level meeting of the U.N. Economic and Social Council and published in its entirety on the U.N. website.
