Lafayettes, Movie Massacres, Predictions, and Anniversaries + Shelby Name Game

On July 20, 2015, I made a prediction of a potential movie shooting on August 5, 2016.

Yes, that's a year away. I based those thoughts on future forecasting informed by historical patterning, such as the July 22, 2011, Utøya, Norway massacre occurring the day Captain America was released, and the Aurora, Colorado shootings happening at the premiere showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2013. Copycats followed in the wake of those events, in all sorts of variations. It is called the copycat effect, after all.

In 2012, I compiled a comprehensive list of movie shootings and mayhem; see "Blood Red Movie Massacres."

Suicide Squad is to be first screened in wide release on August 5, 2016.

But then, a mere three days after I wrote that overview on the exact anniversary of the Aurora shooting, a gunman shot up a theater on Wednesday, July 23, 2015. In what even Wikipedia now calls the "2015 Lafayette Shooting," America was surprised again, and I and others discussed some of its sync links; see, "Fayette Factor Hits Movie Theater."

The Lafayette killings took place during the film Trainwreck.
Sam: “You really think you’ll be ready for opening tomorrow?”Riggan: “Yeah, yeah. Yeah, well, I mean, previews are pretty much a trainwreck. We can’t seem to get through a performance without a raging fire or a raging hard-on. ~ Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) - Best Picture of 2014, Academy Awards
BTW, if you missed it, the gunman in the Lafayette horror, John Russell "Rusty" Houser, was born on November 22, 1955. His boyhood 8th birthday was dominated, not by any attention to his youthful entertainment in Columbus, Georgia, but, no doubt, by the news of the day, the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

It appears November 22, 1963, did spawn many monsters.

It is more than a footnote, perhaps, that in the Texas Theatre, a Dallas movie theater, in the Oak Cliff neighborhood, Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the JFK assassination and DPD officer J. D. Tippit, on November 22, 1963.

Meanwhile, back to the future, in 2015, it's business as usual down the street from the Grand 16, where Trainwreck is showing again, and guns are for sale at Lafayette Shooters.

Time moves along on many fronts.

We are coming up to the two-week anniversary for the Trainwreck/Lafayette shooting, always a dangerous window. The date for that anniversary - Wednesday, August 5, 2015.

People should watch out.

Update - Shelby Name Game:

In The Rebirth of Pan: Hidden Faces of the American Earth Spirit, Jim Brandon writes, regarding the overall "name game":
I'm not talking here of such spooky tongue-twisters as H.P. Lovecraft's Yog-Sothoth or Arthur Machen's Ishakshar, but of quite ordinary names like Bell, Beall and variants, Crowley, Francis, Grafton, Grubb, Magee/McGee, Mason, McKinney, Montpelier, Parsons, Pike, Shelby, Vernon, Watson/Watt, Williams/Williamson. I have others on file, but these are the ones which I have accumulated the most instances.
You will see buried in that list, "Shelby."

Of late, the Shelby name game appears to be "hot."

Shelby, North Carolina

The alleged Charleston, South Carolina killer of nine on June 17, 2015, at the Mother Emanuel Church, Dylann Storm Roof was apprehended on June 18, 2015, after a motorist spotted his black Hyundai Elantra, which displayed a "Confederate States of America" license plate on the front bumper, while driving near Shelby, North Carolina. See more, here.

It was noted at the time of the Charleston killer suspect's capture the irony in the location of his apprehension with the name of James Shelby Downard, Synchromysticism's Godfather.

Shelby County, Tennessee

Shelby County, Tennessee was the site of a police officer being killed on Saturday, August 1, 2015.
Then on Monday, August 3, 2015, authorities arrested a convicted bank robber suspected of the killing of the Memphis, Tennessee, police officer Sean Bolton during a weekend traffic stop, the Shelby County sheriff said.
Tremaine Wilbourn, 29, had been wanted for first-degree murder since Bolton was shot dead Saturday after he apparently interrupted a drug deal.
Police director Toney Armstrong said Sunday that a passenger shot the 33-year-old Bolton several times after "some type of physical altercation."
Wilbourn had been free on supervised release by the U.S. Western District Court for a 122-month sentence for bank robbery, Armstrong said.

Camp Shelby, Mississippi

The Mississippi National Guard says soldiers reported shots fired during a training exercise at Camp Shelby, but no service members were hurt.
The Guard said in a news release Tuesday, August 4, 2015, that the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center is secure and all personnel accounted for. The news release says the shots were fired from a road near Camp Shelby, but not on the military post’s property. Officials say they’re searching for two white males traveling in a two-door, red Ford Ranger. The words “Broken Arrow” are on the front of that vehicle. The shooting happened just before noon Tuesday on Paret Tower Road near Camp Shelby.


The name "Shelby" means "willow grove," "a place where willows grow," and "willow farm."

Locations in North America named "Shelby," are most frequently named after Isaac Shelby (December 11, 1750 – July 18, 1826), the first and fifth Governor of the U.S. state of Kentucky and served in the state legislatures of Virginia andNorth Carolina. He was also a soldier in Lord Dunmore's War, the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812.

The links and syncs in Shelby's life to names frequently encountered nowadays is phenomenal. Let me give a few examples.

Shelby's military service began when he served as second-in-command to his father at the Battle of Point Pleasant (October 10, 1774), the only major battle of Lord Dunmore's War, and what is regarded by most historians as the actual first battle of the Revolutionary War. The site of the battle was Point Pleasant, Mason County, West Virginia, and involved the defeat of Chief Cornstalk. The area is known for the modern Mothman reports, and the location of the alleged "Curse of Cornstalk," which is tied to disasters and the Mothman trouble in the area.

At the Battle of Point Pleasant, among those killed was Pucksinwah, the father of Tecumseh. Colonel John Field, an ancestor of United States Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, was killed in the battle. The monument to the battle in Point Pleasant is a Masonic obelisk.

Shelby was surveying lands in Kentucky in 1780 when he heard of the colonists' defeat at Charleston. On the morning of July 31, 1780, he surrounded the British stronghold at Thickety Fort on the Pacolet River with 600 men. The British commander lost his nerve and capitulated; without firing a shot, Shelby's men captured 94 prisoners.

Following the surrender of Thickety Fort, Shelby joined a band of partisans under Lieutenant Elijah Clarke. This unit was pursued by British Major Patrick Ferguson. On the morning of August 8, 1780, some of Shelby's men were gathering peaches from an orchard when they were surprised by some of Ferguson's men on a reconnaissance mission. Shelby's men quickly readied their arms and drove back the British patrol. Soon, however, the British were reinforced and the colonists fell back. The pattern continued, with one side being reinforced and gaining an advantage, followed by the other. Shelby's men were winning the battle when Ferguson's main force of 1,000 men arrived. Outmanned, they retreated to a nearby hill where British musket fire could not reach them. Now safe, they taunted the British, and Ferguson's force withdrew from the area. Thus ended the Battle of Cedar Springs.

Shelby's further involvement with Charleston and Ferguson is documented here, and the name game seems beyond coincidential.

Isaac Shelby, as Kentucky's Governor, began the tradition of Kentucky Colonels in 1813, which evolved into the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels born in May of 1931, and organization with ties and overlaps with Freemasonry.

In 1820, Shelby was stricken with paralysis in his right arm and leg. He died of a stroke on July 18, 1826, at his home in Lincoln (another power name) County. He was buried on the grounds of his estate, Traveller's Rest. The state erected a monument over his grave in 1827.

Fayette Factor Hits Movie Theater

On Thursday, July 23, 2015, at the Grand 16, in Lafayette, Louisiana, an unidentified 59-year-old male opened fire on a crowd of viewers at Trainwreck.

This occurred at 7:30 pm. Reportedly, 3 are dead, including the gunman. Also, apparently 7 are injured.

The name of the gunman is John Russell Houser, 59, former of Phenix City. Alabama. The last true battle of the Civil War took place in Phenix City, then known as Girard.

Houser is a variant on the German surname Hauser. 
  1. Hauser Name Meaning. German (also Häuser) and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German hus 'house', German Haus, + the suffix -er, denoting someone who gives shelter or protection. Compare Hausmann.variant of Hausen.

It has not been lost on sync thinkers that "Houser" is technically another evolved variation of the same root name that gives us "Holmes." House/home.

The use of the terminology of "drifter," as a law enforcement and media description for the late Lafayette theater shooter John Russell "Rusty" Houser, appears to be rather unconsciously calculated. What it does is to reinforce the notion that Houser is a "lone gunman," without connections. Within synchromystic circles, the name game thoughts on Lafayette's Houser/Hauser origins ("house") and Aurora's Holmes etymology ("home"), therefore, are in stark contrast to the definition of a "drifter": a person who is continually moving from place to place, without any fixed home or job.

synonyms: wanderer, traveler, transient, roamer, itinerant, tramp, vagabond, vagrant, hobo, bum ~ example, 

"a lonesome drifter who had come from parts unknown".

Joe Mehl sends along these links to the names and their meanings:  John (Water - Fish God - Sumerian Lucifer); Russell (Red Haired - Red - Fox); Houser (German Hauser - House - Shelter - Protection).

CNN Wolf Blitzer is reporting shooter John Houser was "very political," flew Confederate and Don't Tread On Me flags in his yard.

Correspondent Robert Phoenix, who alerted me to the Phenix City, Alabama, link to the Lafayette shooter, also pointed out this intriguing point: "Roof and Houser."

PM writes: "In the instance of Aurora, James Holmes killed 12, injured 70. 
In this instance of Lafayette, 3 were killed and 7 were injured according to the report.
1+2 = 3, 7+0 = 7. Same numerical equivalent."

Also, "Notice they say gunfire broke out at '7:30pm'. 7 and 3 are consistent here. Although I've only read this report so cannot say whether these are the widely reported numbers."

Travis Vaughn comments: "Spokesperson is Clay Henry."

Beyond Disney's Hades: Pluto, Chilean 33, and Centipede

Some thoughts from correspondent Steve L.:

  Inline image

Disney's Hercules went into wide release on June 27, 1997.

The Fates prophesize that in eighteen years HADES will have the best chance to overthrow MT. OLYMPUS when the Planets are in alignment ... But warned that HERCULES (currently an infant) could thwart his plans.

Synchronistic Links to 9/11

"Somebody call IX-I-I!"
Two of Hades Minions (Pain and Panic) try to trap Hercules by pretending to be imperiled children trapped under a giant boulder.

Side note --- in Roman numerals 9/11 is IX XI.

James Woods "Hades" witnessed a possible practice run for the 9/11 attacks.

Now --- so we are now 18 years since 1997 ---- 2015.

Currently some of the biggest international news is centered on Greece.

In 2013, the movie Olympus has Fallen was released.

On July 14/15, a spacecraft that was launched January 19, 2006, will rendezvous with the dwarf planet Pluto. (Success, see, "The Long, Strange Trip to Pluto, and How NASA Nearly Missed It" in the New York Times, July 18, 2015.)

Hades, as you know, is the Greek equivalent of PLUTO.

Trailer for the movie 33 about the Chilean miners --- last movie for which James Horner composed the score. Move is scheduled to be released on 11/13/15.

Chattanooga: 11 AM on Route 11

The news of the Chattanooga shooting is all over the media today, as it should be. Four U.S. Marines were killed, and the shooter was found dead.

At the bottom is a typical detailed news article.

Let's look at the twilight language in the story.

These events occurred at 11 am on one road that is known as the Lee Highway. Lee Highway is a National Auto Trail in the United States connecting New York City and San Francisco, California via the South and Southwest. It was named after Robert E. Lee. Lee Highway passes through East Tennessee via US 11 from Chattanooga to Dixie Lee Junction.

Considering the recent events in Charleston on Calhoun Street, here we find ourselves with an event on a highway with a name again associated with a Confederate general.

The other road is Amnicola Highway. The thoroughfare was named for Thomas Crutchfield's plantation.

Amnicola was an antebellum estate owned by Thomas Crutchfield. He named the farm "Amnicola", which in Latin means "dwelling by the river". The farm was the site where General Sherman's troops crossed the Tennessee River prior to the Battle of Missionary Ridge. The house served as a field hospital during the conflict.
In the morning of November 24, 1863, the Crutchfield family awoke to find their farm occupied by several thousand soldiers from the Union's Army of the Tennessee, who had arrived by pontoon boats during the night. Under the command of General William Tecumseh Sherman, the troops immediately began digging rifle trenches and fortifications. A floating bridge was built across the Tennessee River, and by afternoon, some 17,000 men had crossed to attack Confederate positions on the north end of Missionary Ridge. After the battle, a field hospital was set up at Amnicola, and in the days that followed, over a thousand wounded soldiers were treated there.
The war left Amnicola in shambles. Years of work were required to rebuild. Crutchfield succeeded in restoring the plantation and its beautiful gardens. He was widely known for his advanced farming practices, orchards, sheep, and cattle. With his generous and genial nature, Thomas Crutchfield, Jr. had great influence on the early development of Chattanooga. He died in 1886. Source.

An ancient Indian mound was found on Amnicola Highway.

The specific meaning of Amnicola is from amnis ("river") + colō ("cultivate").

The Chickamauga and Chattanooga campaign in the Civil War was a significant part of the conflict in the South.

The etymology of Chickamauga and Chattanooga points to an old story in which Chickamauga means the "River of Blood."

Chattanooga is also allegedly known as Atlanuwa, Hawk’s Nest, or the home of the Tlanuwa, which is actually more like the Thunderbird.

As far as a name game with the killer's name, he was the one who talked of his own name. Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez used this quote with his Red Bank High School senior picture, "My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?" Hijabman.

"HijabMan" means "Muslim hipster."

The date is significant. Ramadan began in the evening of Wednesday, June 17, 2015, and ends in the evening of Friday, July 17, 2015. Today, July 16, 2015, is the last full day of Ramadan.

July 16, 622 – The beginning of the Islamic calendar.

July 16, 1969 – Apollo program: Apollo 11, the first mission to land astronauts on the Moon, is launched from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Kennedy, Florida.

Did ISIS tweet the event before it happened?

Four military personnel were shot and killed and a Chattanooga Police officer was shot Thursday morning in an attack on a local military recruiting office on Lee Highway, then a shootout near the Naval Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway.
The police officer was reported in stable condition with a shot to the ankle.
Two others were injured.
The shooter was shot and killed. Reports listed his name as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, who was living in Hixson and is originally from Phoenix, Ariz. A SWAT Team and numerous police units were at his home on Colonial Way Circle, which is off Colonial Drive near Lake Chickamauga. Near-by neighbors were told to leave their residences. Abdulazeez is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Kuwait.
President Barack Obama gave a live statement from the White House condemning the attack and saying authorities will make every effort to determine the facts surrounding the incident. He issued his condolences to the four families who lost loved ones.
An ISIS-affiliated account tweeted "You will see wonders Chattanooga" at about the time of the shooting outbreak.
The shootings were at a Naval recruiting facility at 6219 Lee Highway and the Naval Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway. FBI Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said those killed were at the facility on Amnicola Highway near the Riverpark.
He said the shooter started at the military facility on Lee Highway around 10:45 a.m. Numerous bullet holes were in the front door, and there were a number of shell casings on the parking lot.
A witness said a vehicle pulled up and the driver brought out a large gun. She said he "fired one shot, then there were endless shots." She said some people from the recruiting office ran out the back door.
Agent Reinhold said the man drove the seven miles between the two facilities, and the entire incident was over in about 30 minutes.
He did not answer a question at an afternoon press conference on whether the shooter was shot by police or took his own life.
He said the shooter is from the Chattanooga area.
Early on, Mayor Andy Berke said one police officer and a shooting suspect were down. Mayor Berke tweeted "Horrific incident in our community. We will release details as they are confirmed. Prayers to all those affected."
At the press conference he called it "a nightmare for the city of Chattanooga," saying there was "a vicious attack at two different locations on people who proudly serve our country."
Mayor Berke called it "incomprehensible" and said authorities "will respond will every resource we have available."
Police Chief Fred Fletcher praised city and county police for responding quickly and preventing further carnage.
The gunman was reportedly driving a silver Mustang and wielding a high-powered rifle. Agent Reinhold said he had numerous weapons with him.
Numerous ambulances and emergency vehicles went to both scenes. Additional ambulances were still going to the scene at Amnicola Highway as late as 11:40 a.m.
Chattanooga State Community College nearby was on lockdown and later called off classes for the rest of the day.
Amnicola Highway was blocked in both directions.

Shortly after 1 p.m., police said the "active shooter" situation was over.
There were no reported shootings in Bradley County, but authorities were making a "clean sweep" at the Bradley County Mall.
Special ATF agents were being sent to Chattanooga in response to the shootings. Agent Reinhold said several hundred FBI agents would be sent here to investigate.
U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said the FBI is in charge of the probe, but that it would be a joint investigation.
He said it was still to be determined whether it was an act of terrorism or a criminal act.
U.S. Attorney Killian called it "a sad day for the United States."
Officials from Erlanger said, "Today a tragic incident took place in our community. Following the shooting incident which occurred this morning on Amnicola Highway, Erlanger’s Trauma Center received three shooting victims, a Chattanooga police officer and two members of the military. One of those patients was discharged from Erlanger this afternoon; the other two are still being treated.
"Erlanger officials continue to work closely with the Mayor’s Office, Chattanooga Police Department, Hamilton County Emergency Operations Center and federal officials. More information will be released on the condition of the remaining gunshot victims as it becomes available.
"Our facility remains open to patients. Emergency patients are still being accepted, and everyone has the ability to arrive and depart from our hospital.
"Please join our staff in keeping the families and victims of this terrible tragedy in your thoughts and prayers."
Authorities said they had no warning about the attack.
No flights at the Chattanooga Airport were impacted; the airport has remained open and operational throughout the day.
The sanctuary of Abba’s House is open for prayer for the city until 6:30 p.m. Officials said, "The community is welcome to come and pray for the families of those who were killed, those who were wounded, first responders, military and the city."

In light of Thursday's tragedy there will be a Community-Wide Prayer Vigil, at 7:30 p.m. at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church, 6314 East Brainerd Road, Chattanooga.
Church of the Highlands will hold a city-wide prayer gathering for the victims of Thursday's shootings, and peace to come to the Scenic City at 6:30 p.m. at 6621 Hunter Road, Harrison, Tn. 37341. The community is invited to join in praying for the city.
The Derby Downs Subdivision off of Hickory Valley Road in Chattanooga is placing its neighborhood flag at half mast and lining the entrance way with small American flags. This is an act of respect for the 4 Marines who lost their lives on Thursday and in honor of the law enforcement who keep Chattanooga safe. Derby Downs Homeowners Association encourages all subdivisions to join in this tribute to these brave heroes. Source.

Next Movie Shooting: August 5, 2016?

Could the next major theatrical mass shooting occur on August 5, 2016?

Remember Friday, July 20, 2012? James Holmes opened fire on the patrons at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, just as The Dark Knight Rises began, killing 12 and injuring 70 others. The night was the premiere evening for the film. (See also here, here, and here.)

Do you recall what occurred a year before that event? Early on Friday, July 22, 2011, a person dressed as a policeman (Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old Norwegian right-wing extremist) fired shots at Norway's Labour Party Youth Camp on the island of Utøya, injuring and killing over 90 people, mostly young people. There were about 700 people at the camp. The death toll for the shootings at the camp plus the bombings was set at 77. The same day, on Friday, July 22, 2011, Captain America: The First Avenger was widely released in the United States, which began with a battle between Nazis and the film's hero - in Norway. (See also here.)
The movie Suicide Squad opens on Friday, August 5, 2016. Is it subconsciously broadcasting the kinds of messages to those who might shoot up a movie theater?

I hope not, but stay tuned. And be forewarned.

What has happened on August 5ths in the past?

642 - Battle of Maserfield - Penda of Mercia defeats and kills Oswald of Bernicia.
910 - The last major Viking army to raid England is defeated at the Battle of Tettenhall by the allied forces of Mercia and Wessex, led by King Edward and Earl Aethelred.
1071 - Emperor Romanos IV Diogenes captured/Islam advances through Europe.
1305 - William Wallace, who led Scottish resistance to England, is captured by the English near Glasgow and transported to London for trial and execution.
1812 - War of 1812: Tecumseh's Native American force ambushes Thomas Van Horne's 200 Americans at Brownstone Creek, causing them to flee and retreat.
1973 - Arab terrorists open fire at Athens airport, kills 3 injures 55.
1997 - Ramzi Yousef, mastermind of World Trade Center bombing goes on trial.
2003 - A car bomb explodes in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta outside the Marriott Hotel killing 12 and injuring 150.

Known for The Werewolf of Ansbach, Killing Spree Visits Area

A suspect has been caught by police after allegedly shooting to death two people in a killing spree in Ansbach in northern Bavaria, Germany, on Friday morning, July 10, 2010.

The area is known as the site of famed werewolf account, in many ways, a German version of the Beast of Gévaudan (La Bête Du Gévaudan).

Coat of Arms of Anspach.

The name of the town was originally Onolzbach, meaning "On'z Brook". It was also formerly known as Anspach.

The Wolf of Ansbach was a man-eating wolf that attacked and killed an unknown number of people in the Principality of Ansbach in 1685, then a part of the Holy Roman Empire. Initially a nuisance preying on livestock, the wolf soon began attacking women and children. The citizens of Ansbach believed the animal to be a werewolf, a reincarnation of their late and cruel Bürgermeister, whose recent death had gone unlamented. During an organized hunt the locals succeeded in driving the wolf from a nearby forest and chasing it down with dogs until it leaped into an uncovered well for protection. Trapped, the wolf was slain, and its carcass paraded through the city marketplace. It was dressed in a man's clothing and, after severing its muzzle, the crowd placed a mask, wig, and beard upon its head, giving it the appearance of the former Bürgermeister. The wolf's body was then hanged from a gibbet for all to see until it underwent preservation for permanent display at a local museum. (See also, The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould, and The Werewolf by Montague Summers).

Franz Ritter von Kobell and other writers wrote poems about the wolf and its actions.

The man arrested in conjunction with the July 10, 2015, Ansbach shooting is thought to be around 47 years old, is alleged to have driven in a silver Mercedes convertible to the village of Tiefenthal, where he stopped and had a brief exchange of words with an 82-year-old woman before shooting her dead.

Tuefebthal literally translates as "the deep valley." The municipality lies in a small hollow with northern slopes between the Eisbach and Eckbach valleys in the Palatinate. Tiefenthal belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Hettenleidelheim, whose seat is in the like-named municipality. Until 1969, the municipality belonged to the now abolished district of Frankenthal.

The German blazon reads: In Rot ein goldenes Tatzenkreuz. (A golden cross in red.)
Tiefenthal’s arms might in English heraldic language be described thus: Gules a cross pattée humetty Or. The arms were approved by the now defunct Regierungsbezirk administration in Neustadt and date from a 1724 seal. They are borrowed from the arms once borne by the Counts of Leiningen-Westerburg, to whom Tiefenthal belonged.

The suspect fled the scene before shooting and killing a 72-year-old male cyclist 5km away in Rammersdorf.

Another man was threatened with a gun, and shortly afterwards a tractor driver was shot at, but was unhurt, police said.

Two mechanics working at a petrol station in Bad Windsheim overpowered the man after he entered the shop and threatened employees with a gun, police said.

Police said the man, named as Bernd G, was not previously known to the authorities.

Gerhard Neuhof, a senior public prosecutor in Ansbach, said there was no indication the gunman knew his victims and the incident appeared to have been a random killing spree.

The mayor of Leutershausen, Siegfried Hess, said he was shocked by the attack, according to the newspaper the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Crime scene investigators in Leutershausen, near Ansbach (EPA)

Hess told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that he was "totally shocked".

Hess described the killings as "probably the worst crime in the history of the town." He said he had already sent his condolences to the family of the 82-year-old victim, and said he believed the suspect did not know the woman.

Apparently Herr Hess is unaware of the werewolf history of Ansbach!

Twins, Name Games & Syncs In Overdrive

Things seem to be coming in twos, of late. The sync twins, we could call them.

The story of the man in Calais, Maine who decided on the evening of the 4th of July 2015, to put a fireworks mortar on his head and set it off, makes us wonder about folks and what they do on the 4th. But, despite the jokes about him being a Darwin Award winner, you have to remember the human element behind such news items.

Devon Staples had been drinking with friends Saturday evening and setting off fireworks, when Maine State Police say he put a mortar on his head and lit it. It exploded, killing Staples instantly. His friends and family grieve, his father said he thought it was a dud, and he was joking around. Looking deeper into the incident, it seems Staples might have not thought it was live explosive.
Turns out the 22-year-old (11 + 11) was an actor and something of a comedian. Devon Staples used to work at Disney World in Orlando and would dress up as Gaston and Goofy. The duality in his life may have ended it.

Other "celebrities" had fireworks accidents this 4th of July. A "twinning" event occurred this year when two NFL players lost fingers.

New York Giants NFL superstar Jason Pierre-Paul had his finger amputated dur to an injury to his hand during a fireworks show at his Florida home. In 2009, his junior year in college, he played for the University of Florida, Tampa, Florida, and then entered the NFL draft of 2010.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback C. J. Wilson lost two fingers due to a July 4th fireworks accident at his Lincolnton, North Carolina home.

Rarely do we see times like these.

The "name game" appears to be going wild with lexilinks and connections. The synchromystic world is ringing like a bell. And hidden twilight language abounds.

It is really too much for me to capture, so I'm going to rely on some friends and their hints to fill out part of the picture here.

"One measures a circle, beginning anywhere," as Charles Fort wrote.

The date 7-7 seems as good as anyplace to start. Various people who were 77 died around this day, but look what happened on the date.

On July 7, 2015, over Moncks Corner, South Carolina, a F-16 fighter jet collided with a small plane, a Cessna, killing two people and raining down plane parts and debris over a wide swath of marshes and rice fields. The two people aboard the smaller Cessna were the ones killed, and the plane was completely destroyed. The pilot of the F-16 ejected and "is apparently uninjured," he said.

Then Johanna Lenski pointed out: "I just found out the time of the crash was 11 am, 11 miles away from Charleston."

Sibyl Hunter said: 
The pilot, Maj. Aaron Johnson from the 55th Fighter Squadron [of Charleston] ejected and survived. Another 55/ISIS/1515 sync to go with the 77s and 11s. Also of note, the crash happened over Lewisfield Plantation where 178 slaves were once held. And I don't know if it's relevant at all but the story made the biblical rapture scripture pop into my head:
"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." (1 Thes 4:17)

With the killing of 9 at the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, much thought has been placed on the name "Charles."

JL shares: 

Charles \ch(ar)-les\ as a boy's name is pronounced charlz. It is of Old German origin, and the meaning of Charles is "free man". From "karl", similar to Old English "churl", meaning "man, serf" (slaves/blacks/ CHARLEStown). The first Holy Roman Emperor (seventh to eighth century) Charlemagne (Latin Carolus Magnus (Magus), meaning "Charles the Great") was a powerful German leader (Hitler?), who created a more ordered society out of the chaos that followed the fall of Rome. He united France and much of central Europe. His widespread fame gave rise to many forms of his name. Charles is the French variant of Carolus or Karolus, adopted by the English especially since the 17th-century reigns of kings Charles I and II. Charles and its variant forms have been favoured by the royalty of several countries, including the present Prince of Wales. Charlie and Charly are occasionally used for girls. See also Arlo. Naturalist Charles Darwin (Eugenics); French president Charles de Gaulle; author Charles Dickens; actor Charlie Chaplin; basketball player Charles Barkley.
Later, on July 7, 2015, the Fayette Factor collided with the day. Near the University of Maryland, there was a quadruple shooting, in the 900 block of W. Fayette St, West Baltimore, at 11 PM, 7-7-15, that left 3 dead, 1 injured.

There appears to be a good deal of duality, twins, and repeating situations going on. This happened during the animal attacks, when sharks and sturgeon appeared to be repeating attacks in the same spots. There have been others. As RS wrote me: "[Besides the] two false calls of gunshots reported on two different military bases, we should keep in mind this recent run of occurrences that take place before and then re-occur again only this time fatally. Plane crashes on the same street, a stairwell collapses again, flying sturgeon...."

As of July 8, 2015, there have been 17 lightning fatalities in the lower 48 states.

John A. Keel's 1970s' newletter, The Anomaly News often carried one of his favorite obsessions, his reports of the less-than-random intersection of lightning and the name game. Similar overlaps continue today.


Morgan (calling William Morgan) and Nichols (calling Jim Brandon) Name Game

At Fort Morgan, Alabama, a 12-year-old girl, Megan Nickell of North Little Rock, Arkansas, was killed by lightning on July 7, 2015. She was playing soccer on Fort Morgan peninsula beach.

National Weather Service lightning specialist John Jensenius says Nickell's death is the third lightning fatality this year in Alabama and the 17th in the country.

Charles Name Game


Enki King writes: "The odds of all these Charles syncs happening must be the same as four people getting struck by lightning in the same storm. Oh wait, that just happened. The two survivors were taken to Prince Charles Hospital."

Two men (one said to be carrying a selfie-stick) died who were hit in separate lightning strikes on the Brecon Beacons (a mountainous area of Wales), while two other men were hospitalized with their injuries at "nearby Prince Charles hospital."

One of the dead men was identified as Jeremy 'Jez' Prescott, 51, from Telford, Shropshire, (shown here with his dog Charlie), a Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition leader.


Fayette Factor (see more recently here)

Jacob Bryan Russell Neff, 17, of Ansted, West Virginia, died on June 1, 2015, after being struck by lightning. Neff and two other boys were fishing at a pond when a tree they took shelter under was struck by lightning. The call came in around 3:30 p.m. on the 1st, in an area of Elverton Road near Fayetteville. Neff was killed and the other boys were injured. Neff was an 11th grader at Fayetteville High School, according to Charleston, WV media.

Finally, we need to mention that on July 8, 2015, three "coincidences" happened with the shut down of the United Airlines flights (all were grounded), the New York Stock Exchange (trading was suspended for about 4 hours) and the Wall Street Journal's website (was down). Homeland Security said it was not a cyberattack.

But you could not convince the social conspiracy community of that.

Those with a sense of humor felt it was Bane's fault! And here we are, full circle, back to The Dark Knight Rises.
