Ruth (Baker) Ndesandjo

Born Ruth Beatrice Baker in the United States around 1937, the daughter of Maurice Joseph Baker and Ida Baker of Newton, Massachusetts, who are of Lithuanian Jewish descent. Ruth Baker was a 1954 graduate of Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, and a 1958 graduate of Simmons College in Boston with a degree in business. She was a suburban elementary school teacher when she met and began dating Barack, Sr., in Cambridge in June 1964, a month before his return to Kenya in August 1964. She followed Obama, Sr., back to Kenya five weeks later, and married him in Kenya in a civil ceremony on December 24, 1964. She later became a private kindergarten director in Kenya. She had two sons with Barack Obama, Sr.: Mark and David. She and Barack Sr. separated in 1971 and divorced about 1973. Since she remarried when her sons were young, they took their stepfather’s surname, Ndesandjo, as their own. Her third son, Joseph Ndesandjo, was born c. 1980 in her second marriage….

There’s Something About… American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulos Murdered With Part Of His Family

The murderer(s) took 40k in cash and left (his) DNA on eaten pizza that was delivered to this family house:

http://www.wusa9.com/story/news/local/2015/05/20/savopoulis-10-year-old-boy-tortured-before-murders-and-fire-in-dc/27643991/

Next:

http://observer.com/2015/05/stringer-wrings-1-million-from-city-contractor-for-underpaid-immigrant-workers/

Comptroller Scott Stringer today handed out checks totaling more than $900,000 to 33 mostly Guyanese immigrant workers—the proceeds of a nearly $1 million settlement with a construction firm that worked on 12 city projects and failed to pay prevailing wage.

The money redistribution followed a press conference where Mr. Stringer lambasted the Queens-based North American Iron Works Inc. for failing to pay the $42-an-hour plus benefits to its non-union employees, whom he said it had instead compensated at the rate of roughly $16 per hour. The comptroller, charged with handling the city’s finances and setting prevailing wage and benefit figures, reached a settlement deal with the subcontractor—which worked on 11 schools in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan as well as the Queens Museum—for it to reimburse to workers some $920,000 in back wages and pay a civil penalty of $46,000.

Police said Saturday night that they are seeking a person of interest in the deaths of four people in a house in an upscale neighborhood in Northwest Washington.

Police said the individual may have been operating a Porsche automobile linked to the house.

They also provided video footage that appeared to show a man wearing a hoodie moving rapidly behind a building.

The announcement came in the deaths of Savvas and Amy Savopoulos and two others, believed to be their son and one of their housekeepers.

The Savopoulos family had been having a busy week. The husband was trying to get a new martial arts center in Chantilly, Va., ready for a grand opening, and he enlisted the help of one of his housekeepers. His wife was ill, and their 10-year-old son was recovering from injuries suffered in a go-kart crash.

Before the late night police announcement, the days and hoursleading up to the deaths of the husband and wife and the two others had come into sharper focus Saturday with new details from police records. They show attempts by friends and relatives to reach the victims Thursday morning, before they were found dead that afternoon in a burning home in Northwest Washington.

At least one of the four victims found dead in suspected arson attack at million-dollar family home of CEO ‘had head injuries and smelled of gasoline’

  • Three adults and a child were found dead inside the home in Northwest D.C. on Thursday afternoon following reports of a fire
  • One of those victims had a bloody injury to the head and smelled of gasoline when they were removed from the home, according to reports
  • The house is owned by American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulos who lives with his wife, two teen daughters, a son, 10, and two housekeepers
  • Mrs Savopoulos ‘told a housekeeper not to come to work on Thursday because everyone was sick; when the worker called, she did not pick up’
  • Son, 10, did not got to school Thursday. The girls were at boarding school
  • The family Porsche was discovered abandoned near the scene and investigators are asking for witnesses who saw it leave around 10.30am

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — D.C. Police are still investigating the aftermath of a quadruple homicide and fire in the Northwest part of the city.

On Monday night, police officers were still at the home of Savvas and Amy Savopoulos, 46 and 47 respectively, on Woodland Drive with bloodhounds to collect evidence.

Firefighters responded to the Savopoulos’ home for a fire on Thursday. Upon arrival, they found the pair, their 10-year-old son Philip and housekeeper Veralicia Figuaroa, 57, dead. An investigation found the four were cut or beat to death before the fire was set.

The Savopoulos’ also have two daughters, but both were away at boarding school during the murders.

Police have been sparse with details about the investigation, but did release video Saturday of a person of interest wanted in the investigation. The video shows a person running behind a building. Their face is not visible.

More on this man, this story, as well as connections:

A married couple, their son and a housekeeper were found dead in a home in an upscale Washington, DC neighborhood on Thursday after the house burned in a fire, police say.

The home’s owner, 46-year-old American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulous, his 47-year-old wife Amy, his 10-year-old son Philip, and their housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, 57, of Silver Springs, Maryland, were identified as the victims during a Friday news conference.

Three of the victims died of sharp, blunt force trauma, according to My Fox DC. Police did not say how the fourth victim was killed. The deaths of all four were ruled as homicides, police said.

Figueroa was a native of El Salvador, were her children still lived, according to WUSA-TV. She had been working for the family for four years and had recently said she wanted to retire soon and return home.

Police believe more than one person was involved in the killings.

The $2 million mansion is in the 3200 block of Woodland Drive NW, not far from Vice President Joe Biden’s residence.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Police Found a ‘Savage,’ Bloody & Obvious Crime Scene After the Fire

Police sources told My Fox DC that first responders found a “savage, bloody and obvious crime scene,” when they arrived at the scene.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier said at a Friday news conference that the fire was intentionally set.

“Evidence collection will go on for several days,” Lanier said. “There’s still a lot more we don’t know.”

Lanier said they haven’t found evidence of random or forced entry into the home. She said it’s hard to know if the house was ransacked because of the fire damage.

Firefighters were called to the house at about 1:15 p.m. It took about 30 minutes for the fire to be extinguished.

A neighbor, Joe Carregal, told the Washington Post he saw smoke pouring from the upper-story windows of the house and man knocking on the front door to try to get the family out. Fire trucks soon arrived and firefighters broke windows, deployed ladders and climbed onto the roof. Carregal said he saw them pull three victims from the house.

Police believe the killers accessed the home Wednesday and kept the victims bound, threatening them, until Thursday, NBC Washington reports. Investigators believe Savvas Savopoulos gave the culprits what they were looking for on Thursday.

2. The Family’s Porsche Was Abandoned & Burned in Maryland After it Was Seen Leaving the House

4. A Text Message Was Sent to Another Housekeeper Telling Her to Stay Home

The couple’s two daughters, 19-year-old Abigail, and 16-year-old Katerina, were not home because they were at boarding schools.

Abigail was set to graduate soon from Mercersburg Academy in Pennsylvania, while Katerina is a student at Peddie School in New Jersey.

Philip Savopoulos was a fourth grader at the prestigious St. Albans School in DC.


5. The Family Moved Into the Home About 10 Years Ago & Were Active in the Community

The family was very involved in the community, friends and neighbors told the Washignton Post.

“The community where they lived really loved them,” a friend, Colo Palomeque, told the Post.

Amy Savopoulos was stay-at-home mom and was involved in her children’s schools and local charities.

Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, according to the company’s website.

The company is the “leading integrated manufacturer of highly-engineered, custom-manufactured building products and provider of installation services for specialty metals and structural steel in the Washington, DC, Metropolitan region.”

He was also the chairman of the board of Sigma Enterprises Ltd., an international trading firm, and had recently accepted a job with a Puerto Rico-based company.

For you Alf

Let’s talk about Duke a bit, first a tv twin:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patty_Duke

Patty Duke 1975.JPG

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Ann_Duke

Photograph of Elizabeth Ann Duke, taken in 1985.

Photograph of Elizabeth Ann Duke, taken during the 1970s.

Elizabeth Anna Duke (born November 25, 1940) is a former teacher and militant fugitive best known for her involvement with a number of political organizations, and subsequent flight from prosecution. She is currently wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The criminal indictment against Duke was dismissed and the arrest warrant quashed by Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson of the U.S. District Court, District of Columbia in June 2009.

Duke was born in Beeville, Texas on November 25, 1940 but has given her date of birth as April 20, 1941. Duke was allegedly a member of a Weathermen splinter group, the May 19th Communist Movement. The group claimed responsibility for a series of bombings of U.S. government buildings between 1983 and 1985, including the bombing of the United States Capitol building in November 1983.

Duke, along with her accomplice Alan Berkman, was arrested in May 1985 and indicted on conspiracy and weapons charges by a federal grand jury, in what became known as the Resistance Conspiracy case. Also charged as co-conspirators were Marilyn Jean Buck, wanted for her role in the 1981 Brinks armored car robbery, Laura Whitehorn,Linda Sue Evans, Susan Rosenberg, and Timothy Blunk. She was released on bail in July 1985 and in October 1985 she skipped bail and has evaded recapture ever since.

Next, Ruth:

http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Nidesand

Ruth Nidesand

Ruth Nidesand also Ruth Ndesandjo (born Ruth Beatrice Baker ca. 1937)is an American Jew and the third wife of Barack Obama, Sr., the father of President Barack Obama. They meet at Harvard University in the early 1960s shortly after Barack Obama, Sr. left Obama’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham. Barack Obama, Sr. was attracted to Ruth because she was wealthy and could support his lifestyle. They moved to Kenya and were married in 1965 where Barack Obama, Sr. worked for a U.S. oil company. Later he joined the government of Jomo Kenyatta, working for his early patron Tom Mboya in the Ministry of Economic Planning as a senior economist.

Ruth Baker and Barack Obama, Sr. would have two children. Ruth was brutally beaten by her husband when he was in his drunken rages. She eventually left him and married a Tanzanian. She has adopted the surname Ndesandjo.

Her son, Mark Ndesandjo who now lives in China, has written a semi-autobiographical novel Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East. At a press conference to promote his book he discussed his childhood having an abusive father and a defenseless mother.

My father beat me. He beat my mother. I remember in my house I would hear the screams. I would hear my mum’s pain. As a child, I could not protect her. I could not remember any good things about my father.

Her second son, David, died in a motorcycle accident. A third son third Joseph Ndesandjo (born c. 1980) was fathered by her Tanzanian husband.

Ruth Nidesand’s parents were Lithuanian Jews who immigrated to America. She currently lives in Nairobi, Kenya as a director of a private kindergarten.

And another story on the name*CARTER* and a tale of 2 birth certificates:

That Obama’s birth certificate lists a registrar that appears remarkably like a forger’s signature joke on the word “ukulele” is not the only peculiarity observed in comparing the president’s record with other long-form Hawaiian birth certificates that have been fully authenticated.

In the Nordyke twins’s birth certificate, the type in Box 9, “Race of Father,” Box 12b, “Kind of Business or Industry,” and Box 14, “Race of Mother,” line up to the left margin of the box (in all three boxes for Susan Elizabeth Nordyke and in two of the three boxes for Gretchen Carter Nordyke), while in the Obama birth certificate, the type in each of these three boxes is indented from the right box margin, with varying indent spacing in each line.
The Rosetta Stone for determining the authenticity of the Obama birth document is the long-form birth certificates for the Nordyke twins, which WND discovered and authenticated in July 2009.

The question is whether the Obama birth record the White House released Wednesday is an authentic photocopy of an original 1961 vital record or a modern-day forgery.

His birthplace is disputed with many sources stating Haleakalā on Maui or Waikiki on Oahu. According to Kahanamoku, he stated he was born at Honolulu at Haleʻākala, the home of Bernice Pauahi Bishop which was later converted into the Arlington Hotel. He had five brothers and three sisters, including Samuel Kahanamoku. In 1893, the family moved to Kālia, Waikiki (near the present site of the Hilton Hawaiian Village), to be closer to his mother’s parents and family. Duke grew up with his siblings and 31 Paoa cousins. Duke attended the Waikiki Grammar School, Kaahumanu School, and the Kamehameha Schools, although he never graduated because he had quit to help support the family.

“Duke” was not a title or a nickname, but a given name. He was named after his father, Duke Halapu Kahanamoku, who was christened by Bernice Pauahi Bishop in honor of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, who was visiting Hawaii at the time.

The Financial Information Unit of Argentina is investigating a conspiracy between Iron Mountain and its major clients – international financial companies such as banks HSBC, BNP Paribas and JP Morgan – to destroy documentation involving economic crimes, by causing a fire in the company’s warehouses.

The TeleSUR report goes on and says that “since 2008 the local administration started to promote the setting up of technological industries in the southern areas of the city giving them tax reduction benefits. Iron Mountain’s location was not in this area, but the head of Economic Development of the City, former HSBC executive Francisco Cabrera, intervened in order to give the company these tax benefits. It turns out HSBC was the most affected company in the fire, and it is one of Iron Mountain’s biggest client globally. … An inspector of the Secretariat of Labor of the local government wanted to close down Iron Mountain’s facilities for lack of security measures, but superior officers put a stop to this closure because of the good relationship between Iron Mountain and the local administration.”

Nugan Hand Bank was an Australian merchant bank that collapsed in 1980 in sensational circumstances amid rumours of involvement by the Central Intelligence Agency and organized crime. The bank was co-founded in 1973 by Australian lawyer Francis John Nugan and US ex-Green Beret Michael Jon Hand, and had connections to a range of US military and intelligence figures, including William Colby, who was CIA director from 1973 to 1976. Nugan’s apparent suicide in January 1980 precipitated the collapse of the bank, which regulators later judged never to have been solvent. Hand disappeared in mid-1980.

Canfield ?
Davis was married to Thelma Boyd, his first wife, for 13 years. For a time while Davis worked in Chicago, Thelma lived and worked in Atlanta and later in Washington DC. In 1946 he married Helen (née Canfield), a white woman that he had met in one of his classes who was 18 years younger than he.Davis and Canfield divorced in 1970. Davis had a son, Mark, and four daughters Lynn, Beth, Jeanne, and JillIn 1935, Davis moved back to Chicago to take the position of managing editor of the Associated Negro Press, a news service for black newspapers, which had begun in 1919. Eventually, Davis became executive editor for the ANP. He held the position until 1947.While in Chicago, Davis also started a photography club, worked for numerous political parties, and participated in theLeague of American Writers. Davis was an avid photographer, and inspired Richard Wright‘s interest in the hobby. Davis’s wrote that his photography consisted in large part of nudes because “the female body fascinates me, both aesthetically and emotionally” and that when photographing, he focused on “contours” and the “wide range of tones”.Davis, Richard Wright, Margaret Walker, and others were part of the South Side Writers Group, which met regularly beginning in 1936 to critique each other’s work. Davis worked as a sports reporter, in particular covering the rivalry between African American Joe Louis and the German Max Schmeling, which he and other writers portrayed as democracy and equality vs fascism. Davis saw sports as a way to break the color bar, and a way to reach out to a working class. During the Depression, Davis participated in the federal Works Progress Administration Writers’ Project. In 1937 he received a Julius Rosenwald Fellowship.

From link above:

Stanley Ann Dunham… Is It Possible Obama’s Birth Mother Is Still Alive?… Maybe… You Decide

Communsim from day 1

It is reported that Obama’s grandparents were members of the CPUSA communist party. Also his mother Ann Dunham. Obama’s mentor Frank Marshall Davis was a big time player in the CPUSA in Chicago before leaving for Hawaii to live. Obama ends up where? Chicago. Obama immediately joined the NEW PARTY when he arrived and they helped him get elected to the Illinois senate.

Who died and when?…

Ann Dunham’s father seemingly never died and married another woman. Ann seemingly never died and is alive and well to this day. Did Obama’s grandmother really die recently?

Keep in mind there were no funerals, just memorial services for each person. Also, there is no record of a Stanley Ann Dunham having been treated and dying in a Cancer Institute in Hawaii that Obama has made claim to. They have no record of her having died or even being there at all.

What we’re told…

November 7, 1995, Stanley Ann (Dunham-Obama) Soetoro allegedly died of “ovarian cancer” at age “56.” Her body was cremated; there was no funeral. Memorial service held in her honor at the University of Hawaii. No info on BHO attending; But “helped scatter her ashes over the Pacific Ocean.”

Problems with the story…

– An alias for Stanley Ann Dunham was found as a “relative/associate” of Madelyn L. Dunham, Honolulu, HI: “Kelly A. Dunham.”

Dunhams had only one daughter, Stanley Ann. Therefore, Kelly Ann, who does not seem to have any other history, is likely an alias for Stanley Ann.

An alias search for Stanley Ann at www.recordsarea.com shows the following information:

** Kelly A. Dunham, associate/relative of Madelyn L. Dunham, Honolulu, HI;

** Kelly A. Shippleck (Kelly A. Dunham), Phoenix, AZ [is this a third marriage or an alias for real estate/money laundering?].

** Sandra Dunham (Sandra Lee Dunham), OH, FL

** Susan N. Dunham, HI, CA. Ste (Stephen) Dunham, Honolulu, HI (Stanley Ann chooses another male name?)

** Stephen O. Dunham, Honolulu, HI

** Scott A. Dunham, (Stanley Ann chooses a second male name?), HI, WA, OR, TN, VA, IN.

Each of the aforementioned aliases contains one or more references to the above examples. In cases where the trail seemingly ends, one needs only to cross-reference the “relatives/associates” and the trail continues. Some entries show as many as “99 addresses” in one city and “160 relatives/associates

ACTIVE social security check on Stanley Ann Dunham

Her SSN is 535-40-8522 from www.Ancestry.com

A search at www.intelius.com using that SS# returns 2 addresses in Honolulu, HI and one address for NY,New York.

Stanley Ann’s age for this record is shown to be age 66.

Doing a Whitepages.com search yields the following results:

Stanley A. Dunham

Telephone Number 212-573-5000

Co Ford Foundation

It has been reported that Stanley Ann Dunham was at Ford Foundation during Barack’s Columbia years.

A reverse phone number search for the Ford Foundation number returns an individual by the name of Scott Terkowitz

Did Scott Terkowitz take over that phone number and office? It looks like he had a California license and a West Virginia license to practice.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Ford_Sinclair

Harry Ford Sinclair (July 6, 1876 – November 10, 1956) was an American industrialist. Founder of Sinclair Oil, he was implicated in the 1920s Teapot Dome Scandal and served six months in prison for jury tampering. Afterwards he returned to his former life and enjoyed its prosperity until his death.

He was an avid owner of sports properties, one of the principal financial backers of baseball’s Federal League and a force in U.S.thoroughbred racing. Horses from his stable won the Kentucky Derby and three Belmont Stakes.

Nickname: The Forbidden Isle
Niihau sep 2007.jpg

Sinclair family/ Robinson family/ Hawaii:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niihau

Niʻihau or Niihau (/ˈnh/; Hawaiian: [ˈniʔiˈhɔu]) is the westernmost and seventh largest of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. state of Hawaiʻi, lying 17.5 miles (15.2 nmi; 28.2 km) southwest of Kauaʻi across the Kaulakahi Channel and having an area of 69.5 square miles (180 km2) Several intermittent playa lakes provide wetland habitats for theHawaiian Coot, the Black-winged Stilt, and the Hawaiian Duck. The island is designated as critical habitat for Brighamia insignis, an endemic and endangered species of Hawaiian lobelioid. The United States Census Bureau defines Niʻihau and the neighboring island and State Seabird Sanctuary of Lehua as Census Tract 410 of Kauai County, Hawaii. Its 2000 census population was 160;[4] As of June 2009, the population was 130.

Elizabeth Sinclair purchased Niʻihau in 1864 from the Kingdom of Hawaii and private ownership passed on to her descendants, the Robinson family. During World War II, the island was the site of the Niʻihau Incident: A Japanese navy fighter pilot crashed on the island and terrorized its residents for a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The people of Niʻihau are known for their gemlike lei pūpū (shell lei) craftsmanship, and speak Hawaiian as a primary language. The island is generally off-limits to all but relatives of the island’s owners, U.S. Navy personnel, government officials and invited guests, giving it the nickname “The Forbidden Isle.” Beginning in 1987, a limited number of supervised activity tours and hunting safaris have opened to tourists. The island is currently managed by Bruce and Keith Robinson. They have turned down all offers to sell it including $1 billion from the U.S. government.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Pierce

Marvin Pierce (17 June 1893 – 17 July 1969) was president of McCall Corporation, thepublisher of the popular women’s magazines Redbook and McCall’s.

Marvin Pierce was born in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania to Scott Pierce and Mabel Marvin. Marvin was a 1916 graduate of Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. His ancestor, an early New England colonist, was also an ancestor of Franklin Pierce, the 14th President of the United States. At Miami University, where he was a member of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, he was nicknamed “Monk” and was a stand-out athlete in football, basketball, baseball and tennis. He was inducted into Miami’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1972.

Pierce’s first marriage was to Pauline Robinson who was born in 1896 to Ohio Supreme Court justice, James E. Robinson and died on 23 September 1949. They had four children together:

http://www.mediaite.com/online/birth-certificate-revelation-widow-discovers-that-her-husband-delivered-president-obama/

You know, sometimes people hating the president so much that they refuse to even believe he’s even an American can lead to good things. It’s rare but it happens. Take for example the family of Dr. David A. Sinclair who had no idea until a few hours ago that his name was on President Obama’s birth certificate. Ivalee Sinclair, the doctor’s widow, woke up this morning to discover that her late husband was the one who delivered the future leader of the free world. Talk about a nice surprise. TMZ interviewed her today and it’s clear that this was quite a charming little surprise.

And before all of you conspiracy theorists start asking why she didn’t know, Sinclair explained to TMZ’s Harvey Levin that her husband delivered babies all the time and died back in 2003 before he got a chance to maybe recognize the name. It wasn’t until Obama’s keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention that she and her neighbors realized that guy from Illinois was really a homegrown Hawaiian.

http://www.wnd.com/2011/05/294665/

The White House release of a copy of Barack Obama’s long-form Hawaian birth
certificate continues to raise more questions
– since the name of the president’s attending physician differs from previous published reports.

The name on the purported birth certificate lists Dr. David Sinclair as the obstetrician who delivered Obama in 1961.

But reports by the Buffalo News and supposedly confirmed by the hoaxbusting website Snopes.com indicate the name of Obama’s birth physician was Dr. Rodney T. West.

Here is an image of what the White House claims is Obama’s official, long-form birth certificate, with Sinclair’s name listed as the doctor….

The Marks, Currents And Shades of Greys

©Renee  2015

http://wiki.exopaedia.org/wiki/index.php?n=Main.Markabians

The terms “Markabians” and “Orion Crusaders” are used to indicate the types of Greys that are part of the Draconian/Orion Empire. These include the greys of the following systems: Orion, Draco, Ursa Maior and Reticulum (Zetas).

[Note the similarity with the word Merkabah. The fact that these entities are said to use ‘external merkabahs’ to travel through time and space, may explain this semantic similarity].

Other sources refer to the Markabians as the members of the Draconian / Orion Empire(s) that work closely together with the Secret Government because of their shared agenda of a “new world order” of control and manipulation.

L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology, also pays a lot of attention to the Marcab Confederation, and its members who are called Marcabians. The MarcabConfederation would be one of the most powerful civilisations, still active in our Galaxy. The Confederation is said to have been established 200,000 years ago. The Marcabians would be human-like, yet very oppressive, and would have ruled Earth at a given moment in time.

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (March 13, 1911 – January 24, 1986), better known as L. Ron Hubbard (/ɛl rɒn ˈhʌˌbərd/, ell-ron-hub-ərd) and often referred to by his initials, LRH, was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology. After establishing a career as a writer, becoming best known for his science fiction and fantasy stories, he developed a self-help system called Dianetics which was first expounded in book form in May 1950. He subsequently developed his ideas into a wide-ranging set of doctrines and rituals as part of a new religious movement that he called Scientology. His writings became the guiding texts for the Church of Scientology and a number of affiliated organizations that address such diverse topics as business administration, literacy and drug rehabilitation….

Sara Elizabeth Bruce Northrup Hollister (April 8, 1924 – December 19, 1997) was the second wife of L. Ron Hubbard, from 1946 to 1951, and wife of Miles Hollister from 1951 to her death in 1997. She had one daughter, Alexis Valerie, fathered by Hubbard in 1948.

Sara Northrup was a major figure in the Pasadena branch of the Ordo Templi Orientis(OTO), a society founded by the English occultist Aleister Crowley. From 1941 to 1945 she had a turbulent relationship with John Whiteside Parsons, the head of the Pasadena OTO, who was married to her sister Helen. Although she was a committed member of the OTO, to whom she was known as “Soror [Sister] Cassap”, she acquired a reputation for disruptiveness that prompted Crowley to denounce her as a “vampire“.

She began a relationship with L. Ron Hubbard, whom she met through the OTO, in 1945. It led to the couple eloping with a substantial amount of Parsons’ life savings and marryingbigamously a year later while Hubbard was still married to his first wife Margaret Grubb. Sara played a significant role in the development of Dianetics, Hubbard’s “modern science of mental health”, between 1948 and 1951, during which time she was Hubbard’s personalauditor and one of the seven members of the Dianetics Foundation’s Board of Directors, alongside Hubbard himself. However, their marriage broke up in extremely acrimonious circumstances amid accusations of kidnapping and Communist plots, which prompted lurid headlines in the Los Angeles newspapers. She subsequently married one of Hubbard’s former employees, Miles Hollister, and moved to Hawaii and later Massachusetts….

The E-meter

Main article: E-meter

Mark Super VII Quantum E-meter

Most auditing sessions employ a device called the Hubbard Electropsychometer or E-Meter. This device measures changes in the electrical resistance of the preclear by passing a small electrical current (typically in the range from 50µA to 120µA) through the preclear’s body by means of a pair of tin-plated tubes originally much like empty soup cans, attached to the meter by wires and held by the preclear during auditing. These changes in electrical resistance are believed by Scientologists to be a reliable and a precise indication of changes in the reactive mind of the preclear.

According to Scientologist doctrine, the E-meter allowed for a change in how auditing worked and made it more precise, although no clinical trials have shown its effectiveness. It later became a requirement to only run processes that reacted on the E-meter and equally crucially, to determine when to stop running a particular action. As a repair tool, the auditor can also call out a list of possible difficulties and relevant phrases will react on the E-meter, again guiding the auditor to any difficulty.

Project Camelot…. An interview with ‘Dane Tops’:
The man who blew the Church of Scientology wide open

http://www.projectcamelot.org/dane_tops.html

SCIO:

http://www.epilepsy.com/node/965226

http://www.quantumenergywellness.com/index-7.htm

What is the Quantum SCIO?

SCIO stands for Scientific Consciousness Interface Operation system. Scio is derived from the Latin = I know.

The SCIO is a sophisticated and profound energetic medicine system, derived from the SCIO [Quantum Xrroid Consciousness Interface]. It incorporates electro-dermal screening, stress testing and biofeedback.

It is a computerized system that both tests and balances the body at the subtle energy level.

It integrates the sciences of mathematics, quantum physics, fractal dynamics, subspace theory, electronics, and computer programming. The therapies include the following modalities: naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic, energetic medicine, psychology, aromatherapy, reflexology, colour therapy, Neuro- Linguistic Programming, biofeedback and Rife Resonator. It also incorporates knowledge of metaphysical subjects to bring a unique synergistic perspective to natural healing.

What is meant by “subtle energy”?
Intelligent or invisible energy for diagnosis and healing has been used for thousands of years in acupuncture and other ancient, traditional healing arts. Conventional Western Medicine is the only major health system which does not recognise any form of biological energy. Quantum physics in the past 100 years has provided a scientific understanding of the electro-magnetism, which is at the heart of energetic medicine.
Every cell, organ, meridian and emotion has a characteristic electro-magnetic signature. Illness can start as an energetic disturbance, which can be detected by the SCIO. The body’s subtle energy system is an early warning system. Imbalances in the body’s subtle energies show up much earlier than overt physical disease.
How often have you complained of symptoms, for which all the tests come back normal? By the time blood tests and X-rays reveal abnormalities, the disease process may be quite far advanced. Healing can often only be addressed by harmonising the subtle energies.
All aspects of our lives [physical health and illness, emotions, thoughts] operate according to the laws of quantum physics. We can now all have access to the power of energetic healing, combined with ancient wisdom and modern technology.

What does the SCIO do?
The SCIO is a sophisticated, biofeedback system, which is designed for stress detection and stress reduction. It does NOT diagnose any clinical diseases.
The SCIO measures the unconscious of the patient, and provides an interface between the conscious and unconscious minds. The unconscious monitors the total complexity of current and past life experience. Since the conscious mind is aware of only a tiny fraction of this totality of exposure, it is therefore not a reliable source of information of life or disease.
The device gathers bio-energetic data from the body via fifty-five parameters simultaneously. This happens at biological speed, which is 1/100th second for each stimulus. This means that thousands of items can be screened for reaction from the body in a few minutes.
Imbalances at the energetic or subtle energy level can be an early warning system regarding health status. If imbalances go uncorrected, eventually physical symptoms will erupt, and health problems and disease develop. As well as being an early system of prevention, keeping the subtle energies balanced helps to restore physical energy.

The SCIO communicates with the body to determine what energy imbalances are most affecting personal health; physical, mental and emotional concerns. It is calibrated to measure the body’s subtle reactions to a database of biological, psychological and medical items in electro-magnetic form. The sensitivity is set so finely that it picks up the earliest sign of dis-ease [see Integrative Medicine] and distress. The information is then prioritized to help the practitioner zero-in on the body’s current specific needs. The program offers information specific to subtle energies – emotional and mental stresses, nutritional needs, toxins, food sensitivities, digestive and elimination needs, etc. The values shown represent an 85% probability that the body has reacted to that particular signal….

That Thing Of Theirs (Part 1) The Grand Opening

©Renee  2015

Her bathroom was so elegant. Blocked glass windows behind her oval tub sparkled bright, white light below the jeweled swags. Large, antique tapestries lined the walls in pastels that she could see behind her while at her vanity thru the mirrors. The vanity was lined with all of her varieties of Chanel perfumes, powderpuffs and a vase of her makeup brushes. She dropped her pink, silk robe, applied lotion and powder to her body and picked an elegant, flowing, white, Gatsby type creation from a hanger and liked how it felt on top of silk stockings and high end heels. She threw on a dozen gold bracelets, pearls and matching earrings and grabbed her bag, ready for the big day. It had taken three years for this day.

She left the bathroom and watched him asleep in her bed. Under her white, goosedown comforter he was so still. One perfect butt cheek barely peeking out from under the covers. He had the body of a Greek statue. His face looking so young and childlike in sleep. His short chin under his low set mouth that turned downward when serious. The family face. The genetics did not lie. He looked much like his Don ancestor. Carried the name and face ever so quietly. So secretive. Guarding the family stories in gentlemanly fashion. She never asked too many questions as there were many things that a girl like her just did not wish to know. It was one of the things he loved about her. Along with her long legs, blonde hair and blue eyes. They fit well somehow though. The Italian man and French girl. Dark and fair. They complimented each other and made a stunning couple. People loved to wonder about them, and know them, but never really did as they were so complete with just each other. It had been like this from the start with them. Not much had altered thru the years, except their ages.

He called her his baby girl even though there were just a few years age difference. He was so wise, and she was so child like but very cool and sleek, feisty and warm, loving to dance and laugh, and he was a man of few words, serious, businesslike. She loved it when he told her that Poppa loved his baby girl, and he was always hot with his big, sexual appetite. He loved two things. Making money and making hot sex. They were a force together hard to match. He in his dressy slacks and import shoes, she in her short skirts and good legs that went on forever. They both were older, but beautiful to see. He loved her look, and she loved his way. She loved men of mystery and he liked her warmth on his arm. He showed her off to his friends and told her that. It made her feel flattered. He told her she was beautiful, she told him she loved his style.

She slipped into her Mercedes convertable and smoothly left the flagstone, circular drive of their small, villa styled home. She turned left on Canyon Ranch Road and hit Central Avenue in the afternoon sunshine. She briefly stopped at Wilkinsons and picked up special order Aztec truffles filled with a tequila made by a childhood friend, and lime cream filling and topped with dark chocolate and dried, sweet lime peel. They were for deserts with lemon crepes. Now on to the restaurant/ club to make sure it was perfect before the doors opened for the first time at 5PM.

The entry foyer sparkled. Custom tile mosaics were carefully laid in each room’s floor. The entry floor had a peacock design, in  neon green, blues and gray upon white and gold diamond shapes. The entry table was round, in gleaming dark wood and a huge, floral arangement in a Tuscan Urn of clay was filled with Bird of Paradise flowers. The walls were lit with amber wall sconces and the smell of lavender and rosemary filled the air. Her man would be pleased. The orchestra was setting up and the kitchen was ready. The dining rooms shimmered with Palatial Gold rimmed, white china, linens of Egyptian cotton, the best silver and glassware. Antique tapestries adorned the walls of pale cream and the bar was a beautiful, old world creation with a mirrored, lit back. The draperies were pale blue silk, adorned with Turkish beads. Like it’s name, it was truly an Oasis. All that was needed now were the elegantly dressed people to fill it, and open it in style. They would stand at the door together greeting their guests. She knew he was dressing by now, soon to join her. It was almost time for the night to begin. Three years of planning every detail. The effort now showing it’s worth. Their wealthy, nameless investors would tonight see with their own eyes that their stacks of money had truly been well spent.
