Hollywood Rumor Mill Links Tom Cruise To 33 Again



A couple years ago, I highlighted the strange "coincidence" to be found in Tom Cruise ending his relationships when his partners turn 33. The details are in "Tom Cruise: 33° of Separation" and "Cruise and 33 Again."


Perez Hilton (who missed one of the 33-breakups I point out) theorized, due to the fact Cruise was a Scientologist, his relationship endings had something to do with where his religion was founded. Hilton said: "the Hubbard Association of Scientologists, the forerunner of the Church of Scientology, was established in Phoenix, Arizona. And Phoenix lies on the 33rd parallel."

I explore the synchromystic significance of "33" and other elements in those essays. The Fayette Factor also comes into play, as the "Hubbard" being discussed is L. Ron Hubbard, with the "L." standing for "Lafayette."

Earlier this week, rumors began to circulate that Tom Cruise was involved with Laura Prepon, the redheaded actress playing Donna Pinciotti on That '70s Show. She also appeared as Hannah Daniels on October Roads, and currently as Alex Vause doing naked shower scenes in Orange is the New Black (shown above with the shaker tattoo).

While Laura Prepon is 34 years old, as of March 7th, the rumors of their dating appear to extend back to when she was 33. Was Tom aware of the 33 curse, and trying to break it?

In a December 2007 interview in Women's Health, Prepon stated that she is a Scientologist, like Cruise.

<><><>

Laura refers to the laurel tree, and in ancient Rome the rulers were given laurels as wreaths to symbolize their power. (My first name, Loren, is a variant on that name game.)

The Anomalist's Chris Savia writes:  "I was unable to find an etymology of Prepon, but there are references to a Prepon, an Assyrian, and his heresy, which [involves] deep scripture and teachings."

<><><>

By the weekend, most sources, including Cruise's spokespeople, were claiming the rumors tying Cruise and Prepon together as a couple were all false.

They run into each other at Scientology functions, only, we are being told.

Canadian Stabbing Spree Leaves Five Dead



There has been a mass stabbing spree in Canada that has left five dead, including two members of a rock band, Zackariah Rathwell and Josh Hunter.


Matt de Grood, 22, is accused of killing five people during an end-of-year college party in the Calgary suburb of Brentwood on April 15. Police say the attack began at 1:20 a.m. Five people -- four men and one woman -- were killed. De Grood has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

The suspect.
Less than a week after a stabbing in Pennsylvania left 22 injured, five college students have died in the "worst mass murder" in the Canadian city's history
A 23-year-old man will likely face murder charges after allegedly stabbing and killing five University of Calgary students at a party Tuesday.
After arriving at a party shortly after midnight on Tuesday, the suspect — who was an invited guest and is a also a student at the university — allegedly targeted other students individually, according to Calgary Police Chief Rick Hanson. “The suspect arrived at the party, obtained a large knife and targeted the victims one by one, stabbing them,” said Hanson.

Calling the incident “the worst mass murder in Calgary’s history,” the chief identified the arrested suspect as Matthew de Grood, a University of Calgary student.
Hanson said de Grood had no prior history with the police and was likely not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. Police believe he brought a weapon directly from his place of work to the party, but used knife found at the party to stab his victims.
“The suspect arrived at the party, obtained a large knife and targeted the victims one by one, stabbing them,” Hanson said.
The victims were four males and one female.... Source.
De Grood's father, Inspector Doug de Grood, is a Calgary policeman with 33 years of experience. 

The name de Grood originally was written as de Groot, which is composed of the adjective groot, from middle Dutch grote, meaning big or great, preceded by the definite article de, meaning the. It was originally a nickname for a tall person.

Meanwhile, today, the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, had a moment of bizarreness in Boston.

Boylston Street was evacuated Tuesday night after two bags were left at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Both bags were detonated by the Bomb Squad.
At least one of the bags was being carried by a barefoot man who was wearing a long black veil and screaming “Boston Strong.” That man has been identified as Kayvon Edson.
A source tells WBZ-TV that when the Edson was stopped by police, he told them he had a rice cooker in his bag. That is when the Bomb Squad was called to the scene...[T]he rice cooker in the bag was full of confetti. More, see source.
Elsewhere, it should be noted that yesterday was the anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. And this news is hitting the wires, a South Korean ship with about 450 passengers is sinking off the country's southwestern coast.

Boston Marathon Bombings: First Anniversary



Today is the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Next Monday, the 2014 Boston Marathon will be run.

Remain Boston Strong. And Boston Safe.

Aurora Name Game Surfaces In Overland Park Shootings





Aurora. Aurora. Aurora.
The goddess of the dawn. 
The name is back to haunt us, now in connection to the Overland Park shootings.

As I detailed after the The Dark Knight Rises deaths in Aurora, Colorado, a new red dawn appeared to be in evidence.

Now, hidden in the name game and lexilinks of the Overland Park, Kansas events, Aurora dawns again.

The shootings at the Jewish-related sites on Palm Sunday, April 13, 2014, resulted in three deaths.



Authorities announced Sunday night that in custody was none other than Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., 73, who is suspected of fatally shooting a 14-year-old Methodist Eagle Scout and his grandfather in the parking lot at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus in Overland Park then gunning down a woman at Village Shalom, a retirement community.


The two identified victims are Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, both members of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood.



Also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller, he lives in Aurora, Missouri.


The population of the town is about 7500, and it lies in Lawrence County. Between 1911 and 1920, the virulently anti-Catholic newspaper The Menace was published in Aurora by W. F. Phelps and Earl McClure. It achieved a national circulation of over one million, according to the March 1932 issue of American Mercury.




Miller has a long track record of racist and anti-Semitic activities.

Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr. (b. Nov 23, 1940),...is the former leader of the defunct North Carolina-based White Patriot Party (formerly known as the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan). Convicted of criminal charges related to weapons and violation of an injunction against paramilitary activity, he is a perennial candidate for public office. He is an advocate of white nationalism, white separatism, and anti-Semitic theories; and a critic of homosexuality and Third World immigration into historically White nations.
As a member of the racist hate group, “The Order,” which advocated violence against Jews and African-Americans, Miller was involved in the assassination of Denver, Colorado radio talk show host, Alan Berg, in 1984:
"Ten members of The Order were tried and convicted under Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) statutes, and with the help of the testimony of Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., who testified against Order members in order to have his own sentence reduced.”
...
In 1980 Miller founded the White Patriot Party, which developed from the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a local chapter. It was a paramilitary organization with an ideology influenced by the Christian Identity theology. Miller was the leader and principal spokesman for the organization until his arrest in 1987, after which the organization soon dissolved.
After the Southern Poverty Law Center surreptitiously accessed the WPP computer systems, it presented evidence in court indicating the WPP leadership was planning the assassination of SPLC leader Morris Dees. The court issued an injunction barring the WPP, and Miller specifically, from engaging in paramilitary activity. The WPP was avowedly pro-Apartheid, and openly advocated the establishment of an all-White ethnostate in the territory of the American South.
During his time as leader of the WPP, Miller unsuccessfully sought both the Democratic Party's 1984 nomination for Governor of North Carolina, and the 1986 Republican Party's nomination for a seat in the United States Senate.
After going underground, Miller was arrested on April 30, 1987, on numerous Federal criminal charges in the company of three other men (Tony Wydra, Robert "Jack" Jackson, and Douglas Sheets), who were also taken into Federal custody. After his arrest, Miller agreed to testify against several other defendants in a major Federal sedition trial in Arkansas. He served three years (1987-1990) in Federal prison, following his conviction for weapons violations, as well as for violating the injunction proscribing him from engaging in paramilitary activities.

After his release from prison, Miller wrote an autobiography, A White Man Speaks Out, which was privately published in 1999. By 2002 he had moved to Aurora, Missouri. Miller has since become affiliated with the Vanguard News Network of Alex Linder, which is an anti-Semitic, white nationalist website....Miller's [was] interviewed on The Alan Colmes Show and by phone on The Howard Stern Show. Source.
Miller was involved in the rally and leadership which resulted in the The Greensboro massacre, which occurred on November 3, 1979 in Greensboro, North Carolina, United States. Five protest marchers were shot and killed, allegedly, by members of either Miller's group, the American Nazi Party, and/or the KKK. While eyewitnesses stated it was a klansman who fired the first shot, Frazier Glenn Miller said the first shots were fired from a handgun by an anti-Klan demonstrator.

But what is the reality behind this man? As Michael Hoffman notes elsewhere and summarizes in the comments section, "Frazier Glenn Miller, the accused shooter, is a former informant for the Federal government having testified for the prosecution in a landmark 1989 'sedition' trial of militiamen, Klansmen and 'Order' members at Ft. Smith, Arkansas."



After Miller moved to Aurora in 2002, he began publishing his paper, The White Patriot Leader. It included articles by Miller, and former KKK leader David Duke, as well as a recommended reading list which included Mein Kampf, and The Turner Diaries, a racist novel that supposedly inspired Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. 

In 2008, Miller's son, Jesse, was killed in a shootout.
Frazier Glenn Miller, who once went to prison for refusing to shut down his paramilitary White Patriot Party, wrote in a blog post that he doesn't know why his son shot the "white man" who had pulled over to help him after a traffic accident.
But that didn't stop Miller from naming a scapegoat: the Springfield, Mo., Police Department.
The shooting was part of a bizarre string of events on March 28 that began with a car accident and culminated in the death of Miller's son, Jesse. Early that afternoon, an SUV driven by Jesse Miller, 30, hit a pick-up truck in Marionville, Mo. When Joseph M. Rich, 55, stopped to offer assistance, Jesse Miller killed him with a shotgun he had in his vehicle. Soon afterward, a Marionville, Mo., police officer arrived and ordered Miller to put down his weapon. Miller responded by shooting the officer, who then shot Miller dead. The officer, Andy Clark, suffered a non-life threatening shoulder wound. Source.
In 2014, it now appears that Glenn Miller of Aurora, Missouri, visited his violent history upon Overland Park, Kansas.

April is turning into the kind of month we thought it might be.

Shootings At Kansas Jewish Sites By Alleged Hitler Lover

Please see an update to this story, here.


Three people are dead due to shootings at two separate Jewish-related locations in Overland Park, Kansas. One suspect is reportedly in custody. Overland Park police arrested the man in the parking lot of Valley Park elementary. He yelled "Heil Hitler" at onlookers.

The critically injured received emergency surgery at Overland Park Regional Medical Center, authorities confirm. Some did not survive.

The initial shooting was reported about 1:00 p.m. Sunday at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, according to an Overland Park Fire Department spokesman. This happened at the Lewis and Shirley White Theatre inside the center.

The gunfire at the west side of the campus came as hundreds of high school singers from across the metro area were expected to audition for the KC SuperStar contest, while elsewhere there actors were rehearsing for an evening production of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Parents were frantically trying to get to their children.

The second shooting was reported at Village Shalom, which is an assisted living center at 5500 West 123rd St.

Worried relatives of residents tell KCTV5 that Village Shalom has been placed on lockdown.



Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in Braunau am Inn, Austria, and died on April 30, 1945, in Berlin, Germany.

Passover, a major Jewish holiday, begins Monday.

Bundy Ranch


In 2014, the moniker "Bundy" is linked to events reminding many of Ruby Ridge, Waco, and other similar situations. The Bundy Standoff (also known as the Bundy Ranch Standoff and the Siege of Bundy Ranch) is an ongoing standoff between the United States Bureau of Land Management and cattle farmer Cliven Bundy. The standoff originated when the BLM accused Bundy of herding cattle which threatened the desert tortoise.




Reports of black helicopters being used to herd Bundy cattle to be caught and killed by the BLM has further incited anger in the Old West, and raised fears of government conspiracy and mistreatment. The BLM has designated "First Amendment areas," deemed as the only place where protesters (in support of Bundy) are allowed to exercise their First Amendment rights.

April Flashbacks: Waco, OKBomb, Columbine, Hitler, Patriots Day, VA Tech...

It will be recalled that the Waco Siege (also known as the Waco Massacre) was a standoff and assault of a compound belonging to the religious group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and military between February 28 and April 19, 1993.

Four ATF agents and six Branch Davidians killed in initial raid. A 51-day siege ensued, ending with an FBI assault during which the compound burned down, killing 76 people, including many children, inside, including David Koresh. Eleven people who left the compound were arrested.

As a direct result of the events at Waco were cited as the primary motivation for the perpetrators of the Oklahoma City bombing that took place exactly two years later in 1995.

Timothy McVeigh cited the Waco incident as a primary motivation for the Oklahoma City bombing, his April 19, 1995 truck bomb attack that destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, a U.S. government office complex in downtown Oklahoma City, and destroyed or damaged numerous other buildings in the vicinity. The attack claimed 168 lives (including 19 children under the age of 6) and left over 600 injured in the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil prior to the September 11 attacks, and as of 2014 it remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in American history.

The Murrah building had been previously targeted in October 1983 by white supremacist group The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord, including founder James Ellison and Richard Snell. The group had plotted to park "a van or trailer in front of the Federal Building and blow it up with rockets detonated by a timer." After Snell's appeal for murdering two people in unrelated cases was denied, he was executed the same day as the Murrah bombing. Richard Wayne Snell (May 21, 1930 – April 19, 1995) watched the television reports of the Murrah Building bombing before he was put to death in Arkansas.

In his last words before being executed, Snell addressed then-Governor Jim Guy Tucker:
Governor Tucker, look over your shoulder; justice is coming. I wouldn't trade places with you or any of your cronies. Hell has victories. I am at peace.

Other events sharing the date of fire at Mt. Carmel have been mentioned in discussions of the Waco siege. The April 20, 1999, Columbine High School massacre might have been timed to mark either an anniversary of the FBI's assault at Waco or Adolf Hitler's birthday. Some of the connections appear coincidental. April 19 was the date from the American Revolution's opening battles ("the shot heard round the world") and was also the date of the opening of the siege on the CSAL group in Arkansas in 1985. On April 17, 2013, a fertilizer plant exploded at West near Waco, two days after the Boston Marathon bombings that some speculatively connected to an upcoming 20th anniversary of the Waco incident of 1993, as well as to an anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre of April 16, 2007.

Another Link: Ruby Ridge

The Siege of Ruby Ridge has been cited as a precursor to what may be unfolding at the Bundy Ranch standoff. Ruby Ridge was the site of a deadly confrontation and siege in northern Idaho between August 21 – August 31, 1992 against Randy Weaver, his family and his friend Kevin Harris by agents of the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It resulted in the death of Weaver's son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan.


It appears an April encounter with a helicopter was behind why people were killed at Ruby Ridge. Following an April 18, 1992 fly-over by a helicopter for the Geraldo Rivera "Now It Can Be Told" TV show, US Marshal Service HQ received media reports that Weaver had fired on the helicopter. That day in Idaho, a US Marshals team was installing surveillance cameras overlooking the Weaver property at the time of the fly-over. The field report for April 18, 1992 filed by Marshal W. Warren Mays reported seeing a helicopter near the Weaver property, but not hearing any shots fired.

Weaver then granted an interview with a newspaper reporter in which he, family and friends present that day denied firing on the helicopter. The helicopter pilot Richard Weiss eventually gave FBI FD-302 interviews denying that Weaver fired on his helicopter.

The media reports that Weaver had fired on the Rivera helicopter became part of the justification later cited by USMS Wayne "Duke" Smith and FBI HRT Commander Richard Rogers in drawing up the Ruby Ridge Rules of Engagement on August 21–22, 1992. Also, in spite of Richard Weiss' repeated denials that shots had been fired at his helicopter, US Attorney Ron Howen would charge that, as Overt Act 32 of the Weaver's Conspiracy Against the Federal Government, Randy, Vicki and Harris fired two shots at the Rivera helicopter.

Bundy



Formerly, the name "Bundy" was associated with an infamous serial killer of the 1970s. The adopted son of Johnny Culpepper Bundy, Ted Bundy (November 24, 1946 – January 24, 1989) would go on to kill perhaps 30 young women in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

The quick meaning of the name Bundy is "free."

A little more digging shows links to the fate of Cliven Bundy:
Bundy: This interesting surname, of Anglo-Saxon origin, with variant spellings Bownd, Bownde, Bounde, was at first a status surname for a peasant farmer or husbandman. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bonda, bunda", reinforced by the Old Norse "bonde, bondi", in Middle English, "bonde". The ultimate derivation is disputed; it may be connected with the Olde English "buan", to dwell, hence "buende", a dweller, but is thought more likely to be from "bindan", to bind. It was originally used to signify a farmer holding lands from and bound by loyalty to a lord, and hence a free landowner. After the Norman Conquest the name became associated with the idea of bound servitude. Source.

Separate Mass Stabbing Incidents Hit Two Superlative Sites



Mass stabbings hit two unique locations on April 9th. One is known for formerly having "the world's largest arboreal sign" and "the largest commercial gas well in the world." The other is still famed for being "the longest street in the world."

While mass shootings have been common in North America, mass stabbing events are more frequent in China & Japan (see here, here, here, and here).  A well-publicized American incident did occur in Texas in 2013.

Murrysville, Pennsylvania



Seven teens and one adult are being treated after a stabbing incident at a Pennsylvania high school and some of the injuries are "clearly life threatening," according to a doctor at Forbes Regional Hospital. The teens had stab wounds to their torsos, abdomen, chest and back areas, he said.


The stabbings occurred at the Franklin Regional Senior High School to youth with ages  ranging from 14 to 17.
A Disney Dreamworks movie, I Am Number Four, was filmed at the school in 2010. It was based on a book with the same name. The sequel to the book was called The Power of Six, writes the Newspaceman.


The suspect, a male student, was in custody after the stabbings at the school in Murrysville, about 15 miles east of downtown Pittsburgh. Update: The suspect in the Pennsylvania school stabbings is identified in court documents as Alex Hribal, 16. He has been charged as an adult.

Hribal's Facebook page is adorned with a picture of Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide nearly exactly 20 years ago. The social media profile includes a reference to Hitler. He allegedly lived on Sunflower Court in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

The suspect was described as wielding two knives simultaneously during the attack.

The injured were admitted to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, with stab wounds.


"These are all very serious injuries," hospital spokesman Jesse Miller said in a telephone interview.

The first 911 call was received at 7:13 a.m. EDT. The attacks took place in several classrooms and hallways as the school day began. Zak Amsler, a 17-year-old junior at the school, said the attack occurred just before his first class was scheduled to begin.


"I saw a girl with blood running out of her sleeve," Amsler said as he waited to pick up his younger sister, a student at the nearby middle school. "It was pretty mind-blowing."

Stevens, the county official, noted that the scene had been contained. "The students that are here are safe," he told reporters.

The Haymaker Gas Well in Murrysville was the nation's first commercial natural gas well. For some time, it remained the largest commercial gas well in the world.
Since 1933, Murrysville has had a "tree sign" spelling out the word "Murrysville". The trees were landscaped to grow and form the letters by local Boy Scouts. The sign is situated on a large hill as one enters the Municipality from the Murrysville–Monroeville border, near U.S. Route 22. In 1947, the sign was featured in "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" as the world's largest arboreal sign. (It is no longer the world's largest, or even the largest in the country; "Luecke", near San Antonio, Texas, is much larger.) The "Y" in the Murrysville sign points to the Haymaker Gas Well. Source.

Toronto, Ontario



Just after 9:30 am ET also on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, Toronto police responded to multiple 911 calls from an office building on Yonge Street near York Mills Ave.


One man, apparently Asian, (shown here) was placed in custody after Toronto police say at least four people were stabbed (by scissors) at the building in the northern part of the city.

Police say the attack happened on the fifth floor of an office complex at 4110 Yonge St., near York Mills Avenue.

CBC News has confirmed that four people were taken to hospital with stab wounds.

A man and a woman in their 30s are among the people who were stabbed. The two suffered multiple, serious stab wounds, according to police, and are in critical condition in hospital. Two other males whose ages are not known were transported with serious wounds to a trauma centre.
Yonge Street (pronounced "young street") is a major arterial route connecting the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto to Lake Simcoe, a gateway to the Upper Great Lakes. It was formerly listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest street in the world at 1,896 km (1,178 mi). The construction of Yonge Street is designated an Event of National Historic Significance in Canada. Yonge Street was fundamental in the original planning and settlement of western Upper Canada in the 1790s, informing the basis of the concession roads in Ontario today. Long the southernmost leg of Highway 11, linking the capital with northern Ontario, Yonge Street has been referred to as "Main Street Ontario". A large part of the route follows an ancient well-established Aboriginal trail that linked the Lake Ontario waterfront to northern parts of the region. It was also the site of Canada's first subway line. Source.

4.4.14: The Winter Soldier, Jinn, and Fort Hood?


Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4, 2014. Remember what happened when the initial Captain America first was released?

The day of neo-Nazi Anders Behring Breivik's massacre in Norway (July 22, 2011) was the day of the release of the film Captain America (July 22, 2011), with the film's first scene taking place in Norway, to the sound of Nazis' rapid fire machine gunning. A bizarre coincidence, to say the least.

All this lead me to ask on July 19, 2012, "What will happen on July 20, 2012?," with that year's upcoming Friday release of The Dark Knight Rises.

We know, now, don't we? The Aurora theater shooting

Predictions are only helpful if people take precautions. A journalist wrote a Dangerous Minds article later, entitled: "The Copycat Effect: Meet The Man Who Predicted The Aurora Shooting." Nothing has really changed, as far as we can tell.

Certainly, we are in different times here in 2014 than we were in 2012. Newtown/Sandy Hook has taken place. The Boston Marathon bombing occurred. Mass shootings are part of the landscape too frequently. The Fort Hood shooting on April 2, 2014 may have already released the jinn from the bottle. Soldiers. Mass Shootings. Fort Hood & the Bell Name Game. BTW, the film Jinn is being released on 4.4.14, too. The purpose of the movie Jinn is to "introduce the accurate mythological concept of the jinn to western audiences."


Something is already in the air. 

Should we expect mass violence this weekend, regarding soldiers, jinn, and shooting sprees? Let's hope not.

Nevertheless, we are heading into April, which has been the month of Copycat Effects. Waco (April 19, 1993), OKBomb (April 19, 1995), Columbine (April 20, 1999), VA Tech (April 16, 2007), Boston Marathon bombings (April 15, 2013) and so many major and minor copycats are tied to this terrible month of violence.

April is the cruellest month... 
by T.S. Eliot (1888–1965). 
 From The Waste Land, 1922.





Ozymandias vs Winter Soldier

In antiquity, Ozymandias was an alternative name for the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II.

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ozymandias, January 11, 1818
