A retired CIA officer, Normand Hodges, has made a series of astonishing confessions since he was admitted to the Sentara General Hospital on Monday. The 78-year old claims he committed 37 assassinations for the U.S. government between 1959 and 1972, including the beloved actress and model, Marilyn Monroe. Mr Hodges worked as a high level operative for 41-years and was granted top-level security clearances. Trained as both a sniper and a martial arts expert, Mr Hodges says he also has significant experience with more unconventional methods of inflicting harm upon others, like poisons and explosives. He says he was often employed as a hit-man by the organisation, to assassinate individuals who could represent a threat to the security of the country. Most of his victims were political activists, journalists and union leaders, but he also claims that he killed a few scientists and artists whose ideas represented a threat to the interests of the United States. Mr. Hodges says that Marilyn Monroe remains unique among his victims, as she is the only woman he ever assassinated. He claims he has no regrets, however, as he says that she had become a “threat for the security of the country” and had to be eliminated. “We had evidence that Marilyn Monroe had not only slept with Kennedy, but also with Fidel Castro” claims M. Hodges. “My commanding officer, Jimmy Hayworth, told me that she had to die, and that it had to look like a suicide or an overdose. I had never […]
SAN DIEGO, California – Earlier this month, an 80-year-old, homeless, white-bearded man was found deceased under an overpass in San Diego, California. Nobody knew the man’s name, but friends referred to him as Jessie. Investigators decided to try DNA testing with hopes that something would pop up in the nationwide DNA database. What came up on the computer screen in the high-tech lab stunned everyone. The DNA results of ‘Jessie Doe’ were an exact match to the one and only, Elvis Aaron Presley. Lab technician Robert Brensdale said he and his lab assistant, Madeline Hedgespeth, laughed when the name popped up. “We thought somebody, somewhere, somehow in the system pulled the greatest and most elaborate prank on us ever, we both laughed with hysteria for about an hour,” Bresndale told Jerry Hardin of the Hollywood Word, a new entertainment publication based out of Los Angeles. Brensdale and Hedgespeth then went to their superior with laughter, as if he were the one behind this “prank”. They were told to simmer down and stay quiet, that this was no laughing matter. From there, the results went up the ladder to the FBI and CIA. Now, weeks later, FBI spokesperson Philip Hunter has revealed that the deceased man’s body was actually the body of Elvis Presley, who had been in the witness protection program since 1977. Mr. Presley was placed in the program under a voluntary basis. He was not a witness to any crime or anything like that. Once he had met […]
Galileo Galilei was the first to demonstrate that bodies of different mass fall equal distances in equal times. He did this very dramatically by dropping a light and heavy ball from the Leaning Tower of Piza before an assembly of students and skeptical faculty of the University of Pisa. The balls reached the ground at the same time, thereby proving Aristotle’s physics wrong. Galileo wasn’t the first to do this. Flemish engineer/mathematician Simon Stevin (1548-1620) did the experiment. Even earlier, the 7th century Byzantine scholar John Philloponus (John the Grammarian) described the experiment in detail, in language that leaves no doubt that he had actually done it. To make matters worse, Galileo probably didn’t even do the experiment himself, at least he never claimed he did. No document of the University of Pisa mentions it, nor does any other independent source. The story was likely a fictional invention of Vivani, Galileo’s pupil and biographer. Galileo did describe such an experiment, and used it when arguing against Aristotelian mechanics. The myth still shows up in textbooks. It should have died when Lane Cooper demolished it in a pahmphet titled Aristotle, Galileo, and the Tower of Pisa (Ithica, 1935; Kennakat Press, 1972).
The history of witches and warlocks may surprise you. It surprises many people to learn how the whole story of broomsticks and pointy hats got started. It’s a long story. This is just a brief overview. The origin of the word “witch” is the Old English word “wicce”. The masculine form of the old word was “wicca”. The modern religion Wicca, which is also known as the “witchcraft religion”, was named after the Old English word for a male witch or wizard. Wicca developed in England during the early 20th century but the religious practices are said to be based on those of the ancient European pagans. The word warlock actually has a different origin. It comes from the Old English word waerloga, which can mean one who lies or breaks faith and is also a word for the Devil. The word witch was in use in England prior to the 12th century. The first known use of the word warlock was not until the 14th century. Prior to the late medieval times, being called a witch was not necessarily a bad thing. There were white witches practicing in England and throughout Europe. The terms used to refer to these “good” witches included cunning folk and unbinding witches. In the English language of the time, referring to a woman as a witch was no different than saying she was a wise woman, according to historians. The characterization of the witch as an evil-doer evolved slowly over time and resulted from […]
The Battle of Los Angeles Case and point: A UFO event of mass proportion: a giant Alien spaceship hovering over one of our major cities, threatening our very existence. A scenario from “War of the Worlds,” “Independence Day,” or “The Day the Earth Stood Still”? NO! it is NOT science fiction, it has ALREADY happened. When? February 25th, 1942 in the Los Angeles area. Many believe that the “beginning” of the UFO era was in 1947, when Kenneth Arnold sighted flying disc-like objects over Mt. Rainier, coining the phrase “flying saucers.” This term was already common military jargon by the time of the Roswell event of the same year. Preceding these landmark UFO events was the mass sighting of a large flying disc in the Los Angeles area in February 25th, 1942. Coming at a time of heightened security and anxiety following the Japanese invasion of Pearl Harbor only a few months before, this invasion would become a major UFO event, and possibly an omen of things to come. In Ufology, this is commonly referred to as: The Battle of Los Angeles The early morning hours of 2-25-42 would bring the first alerts of an invasion. Naturally, the first thought in the minds of everyone was that another wave of Japanese planes was attacking America on its own soil. Citizens of Culver City and Santa Monica would be the first to witness the surreal sight of a giant unknown object hovering over the suburban areas of Los Angeles. […]
