COLUMBINE STUDENT’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER!!
Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.
They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:
“Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.
“The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart.
“In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA – because I don’t believe that they are responsible for my daughter’s death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent
I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.
Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage,
You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question “Why?”
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!
“Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact.
What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs — politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws.
Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.
“As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him.
To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!
My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!”
— Darrell Scott
Do what the media did not — let the nation hear this man’s speech. Please share this with your friends!
Columbine was a CIA US government psy-operation. That is a fact. A cold, disgusting fact.
Fucking bastards should all die.
Europe’s Early News Network
Did you know that handwritten sheets – called avvisi – circulated among the cities and courts of Europe in early modern Europe after public mail routes became common? They were bought on the streets or by subscription, and had information and news from cities like Warsaw, Paris, and Madrid. They sometimes even had information from further afield such as Ireland or the American colonies. It is hard to understand now, by the once or twice weekly avvisi were a revolution in news, connecting Europeans more than ever before.
One newsletter, dated March 19th, 1588, describes the famous Spanish Armada which sailed against Queen Elizabeth I of England. It was described as having “140 or more sailing ships and eight months of provisions” plus “17,000 combat soldiers and 8,000 sailors.” The same avvisi also discusses the reconstruction of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, and how problems with pilings were fixed on-site rather than being replaced due to the “inconvenience” of closing the Grand Canal.

UNCUT STS-48 UFO “event”

This is for the researcher who wants to see this “legendary” clip in full. It goes from “normal” at night, to the 1st NASA shuttle video to show a UFO!

1999 Buick Cielo
With a name that translates as “sky” in Spanish, this stylish four-door convertible brings a new dimension to open-air motoring. Designed as a no-compromise convertible, Cielo’s front-to-rear roof rails provide body strength and permit three opaque roof panels to slide into the trunk. A voice command operates the convertible top, open and close the doors, and activate the entertainment and climate control systems.
Cielo’s styling draws from Buick’s design heritage with a strong vertical grille reminiscent of the Y-Job, fully functional portholes that recall the famous VentiPorts that first appeared on 1949 models, and the “sweepspear” bright metal body trim of the late ’40s and ’50s. The concept car is powered by a 240-horsepower supercharged 3800 Series II V-6 with electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. The transmission is operated by a push-button control.
This is quite nice, actually.

A Trip Down Market Street, 1906 – With Sound!
Jan 6, 2014
Historic pre-earthquake San Francisco, 1906, with full sound design.
This film was shot on April 14, 1906, just four days before the San Francisco earthquake and fire, to which the negative was nearly lost. It was produced by moving picture photographers the Miles brothers: Harry, Herbert, Earle and Joe. Harry J. Miles hand-cranked the Bell & Howell camera which was placed on the front of a cablecar during filming on Market Street from 8th, in front of the Miles Studios, to the Ferry building. A few days later the Miles brothers were en route to New York when they heard news of the earthquake. They sent the negative to NY, and returned to San Francisco to discover that their studios were destroyed.
The origin of the film was an enigma for many decades, and it was long thought to have been shot in September of 1905, after being dated as such by the Library of Congress based on the state of construction of several buildings. However, in 2009 and 2010, film historian David Kiehn, co-founder of Niles Film Museum in Niles, California, dated the film to the spring of 1906 from automobile registrations and weather records. Kiehn eventually found promotional materials from the film’s original release and dated the film to April 14th, 1906, and finally gave credit to the filmmakers, the Miles Brothers.

Automobile sounds are all either Ford Model T, or Model A, which came out later, but which have similarly designed engines, and sound quite close to the various cars shown in the film. The horns are slightly inaccurate as mostly bulb horns were used at the time, but were substituted by the far more recognizable electric “oogaa” horns, which came out a couple years later. The streetcar sounds are actual San Francisco streetcars. Doppler effect was used to align the sounds.

Spotted this on another forum and thought it was worth sharing with my ATS friends. Sound is a studio job, but it works really well. Really gave me the chills once in a while thinking about how normal that day was and what was to come. Enjoy!

1969 Video Mentions USAF Knew Back In 1948 That UFOS Were Interplanetary Probes
In Over My Head
Location: Upstate NY
Member is offline.
posted on Dec, 8 2019 @ 07:57 AM
I just watched a video on YouTube, of a press conference, featuring UFO experts from the National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), that was filmed in Washington, DC, back on January 11, 1969. (I used the ATS search engine to check for a past thread on this. Many threads on David Kehoe and NICAP, but I couldn’t locate a thread that was specifically on this filmed press conference. My apologies if one exists.)
At this press conference, UFO researcher and co-founder of NICAP, Donald Kehoe, disputes the findings of the Condon Report. Kehoe states that Dr. Condon had a biased and negative approach towards his investigation on UFOs, and that his conclusions were “extremely flimsy.”
Kehoe then states (clip here) that back in 1948, The Air Force had a “top secret estimate” concerning the UFO phenomenon and concluded that UFOs were interplanetary probes. Kehoe mentions that a letter stating this fact was sent by Lt. Col. George Freeman, who was a USAF spokesperson on UFOs, to the head of a NICAP subcommittee in London.
Also at this press conference, scientist George McDonald, states that the “Extraterrestrial Hypothesis” is the more probable hypothesis explaining UFO sightings. Watch that clip here.
McDonald, who was a senior physicist at the Institute For Atmospheric Physics, later states at this press conference:
“Dr. Condon has apparently not read his own material very carefully, and that would again, I’m afraid, be consistent with his general remoteness from what really went on in the project. I say that, because when we tally the, first of all, the 59 major cases numbered and identified in the report, we found that the percentage of unexplained cases, with which the Condon committee is left, at the end of their scrutiny, is 5 to 6 times larger, than the percentage of unexplains that the Air Force Project Blue Book has been talking about for the last 10 years.” WATCH THIS CLIP HERE.

What an absolutely fabulous woman!
Joan Beauchamp Procter
Her best friend was a Komodo dragon and if that doesn’t entice you to read this, I don’t know what will.
Joan Beauchamp Procter is a scientist every reptile enthusiast should admire.
Joan was an incredibly intelligent young woman who was chronically ill (and as a result of her chronic illness, physically disabled by her early thirties). Her health issues kept her from going to college, but that did not stop her from studying and keeping reptiles. She presented her first paper to the Zoological Society of London at the tender age of nineteen, and the society was so impressed that they hired her to help design their aquarium. In 1923, despite having no formal secondary education and despite being only 26 years old, she was hired as the London Zoo’s curator of reptiles.
Now, that in and of itself is an awesome accomplishment, but Joan was absolutely not content to maintain the status quo. Nosiree, by the age of 26 Joan had already kept many exotic pets (including a crocodile!) and knew a thing or two about what needed to be done to improve their lives in captivity.
So Joan got together with an architect, Edward Guy Dawber, and designed the world’s first building designed solely for the keeping of reptiles. She had some really, really great ideas. Her first big idea was to make the building differentially heated- different areas and enclosures would have different heat zones, instead of having the whole building heated to one warm temperature.
She also set up aquarium lighting- the gallery itself was dark, with dim lights on individual enclosures to make things less stressful for the inhabitants. She also insisted on the use of special glass that didn’t filter out UVB. This meant that reptiles could synthesize vitamin D and prevented cases of MBD in her charges.
The above is just a snip of the article… read it!
I so love this lady… so smart… so lovely… so wow!
Why is There NO Record of Ancient Humans? – Randall Carlson

Randall Carlson is a master builder and designer, a geologist, anthropologist and historian. He specializes in sacred geometry, ancient civilizations, climate and environmental change, myths, legends, comic cycles and catastrophes. He is a proponent of the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, and has theorized about the extinction of historical advanced human civilizations.
Thanks for watching.
This is, as expected, an excellent and quick overall view of things that have happened to the world during a vast chunk of our existence upon it. A real eye-opener if you are not aware. Randall is one of the leading experts in this field of study. He most assuredly knows what he is talking about.

Re Uploaded from the fabulous Channel Tony Heller “This is my most concise expose of climate fraud. Please pass it around to everyone you know and your elected officials. The video is short, but cuts right to the heart of the matter.”
In this video you will see the critical data that has been deliberately withheld from both journalists and policymakers.
And, I must say, once you see what’s been censored, you will immediately understand WHY it has been withheld.
This is how the world works. Unfortunately for We The People. This is what’s really going on.

143 New Nazca Lines Discovered in Peru with the help of A.I. Technology | Ancient Architects
Nov 18, 2019
Huge thanks to Michael Wolf for alerting me about this story!
A team of Japanese researchers from Yamagata University and IBM Research have discovered an incredible 143 stunning geoglyphs, etched into the desert in southern Peru around the enigmatic Nazca Lines.
It is yet another example of how technology is assisting archaeology because a number of images were found using state-of-the-art AI technology developed by IBM, finds that were then confirmed with an on-site investigations.
The geoglyphs include humans, birds, camels, cats and other animals and were found between 2016 and 2018. They were identified through fieldwork and analysing high-resolution 3D data and aerial photography. Incredibly, one geoglyph in particular was solely discovered with AI technology, without the aid of humans, making it the first geoglyph discovered by an AI.
Back in April 2018 I reported in a video that Peruvian archaeologists in the Palpa province of Peru had discovered more than 50 new geoglyphs (youtu.be/gpkc7-9_604) so this new discovery by the Japanese team builds on the ever-expanding line of study.
Watch this video to learn more and please Like, Subscribe and Comment below!
All images are taken from Yamagata University. Please visit www.yamagata-u.ac.jp/en/infor… for full detailed information on the new discoveries.
This is a pleasant bit of news, I must say. I love it when new pieces of the puzzle are discovered!
“In 1925 through 1927, the Rudge-Whitworth company introduced a line of touring accessories which have never been equaled by any other motorcycle manufacturer…
Specifically, Rudge introduced a full touring caravan, complete with dining table and beds, which could be towed behind one of their ‘4-valve, 4-speed’ models. Added to this, one could order a sidecar chassis carrying a quick-detachable canoe! This was no ‘miniature’ boat, as some manufacturers produced in the 1950s for sidecar haulage; the Rudge canoe was fully 14 feet long. Yet, the company advertised that the “Canoe sidecar can be turned round in a circle of 20 feet diameter, which very few motor cars are capable of doing. To river lovers it gives great mobility and makes it possible to become acquainted with half the rivers in the country.””
I think this is beautiful and perfectly illustrates a time when America really was great and an attitude and practical, empowering philosophy that was so prevalent then.
I doubt that I or anyone else will ever see its like again.
Speed ace died as his windscreen decapitated him
Published: Saturday 26 October 2002
THE final chapter in the life and death of Donald Campbell was written yesterday to reveal that the legendary speed ace was decapitated by Bluebird’s windscreen exploding at 300mph.
Campbell’s craft crashed on Coniston Water in 1967 as he attempted to better his own world record of 297mph.
Ironically, he succeeded, but only for the seconds before his apparent impatience to become the fastest man alive caused him to make a fatal error, an inquest into his death heard.
The inquest was set up following the recovery last year of Bluebird and Campbell’s remains from the Cumbrian lake.
It was held in a school classroom within sight of where Campbell died.
Details of Campbell’s “second” and fatal race for the record were described to the coroner, Ian Smith.
He heard that Campbell planned to make two attempts on the record hoping to achieve a speed of 328 mph on at least one of the “runs.”
The first run on the “mirror-like” surface went well.
But Campbell, a hero to Fifties schoolboys, who had eclipsed his father’s record-breaking exploits on land and water, turned too quickly into the second and encountered his own wake.
The disturbance caused the nose of Bluebird to rise.
The boat’s plastic windshield shattered and severed Campbell’s head, the coroner was told.
Mr Smith heard the most likely cause of the crash was a sudden “throttling back” at a critical time.
Neat looking thing, is it not?
Bummer, it ending as it did.

Cryptids and Monsters: Stoa
Apr 18, 2019
Well, like the videomaker, this class of cryptid reports is far and away my favorite.
I had not heard much from Texas as opposed to Colorado and Wyoming, but, that is really down to my physical and mental conditions causing a whole lot of nothing to take place. The creator is not up on the latest in dinosaur knowledge and he keeps calling them T-Rex, which is kind of annoying, as they are obviously not.
Truth be told, the majority of dinosaurs of all types were small, like most of the subjects of these videos, 2 or 3 feet tall.
Let us forgive him his sins and just enjoy the wonderful collection of stories he has compiled along with some very fine research into these critters, quite a few of which are new to me.
Some good stuff here, folks and Gol dang it, if I had the ability I would be down there with a tonne of recording devices for as long as it took to get some fine stuff.
The Stellavox Stellamaster SM8 is the highest fidelity analog magnetic tape recorder ever made. The recorder pictured in this gallery is actually an SP7 Stellamaster, which is basically the same, for all intents and purposes, finishing in second by mere thousandths of a percent.
It is spectacular.
