"Let's be honest: you'll never win the lottery.
"On the other hand, the chances are pretty good that you'll slave away at some miserable job the rest of your life. That's because you were in all likelihood born into the wrong social class. Let's face it — you're a member of the working caste. Sorry!
"As a result, you don't have the education, upbringing, connections, manners, appearance, and good taste to ever become one of us. In fact, you'd probably need a book the size of the yellow pages to list all the unfair advantages we have over you. That's why we're so relieved to know that you still continue to believe all those silly fairy tales about "justice" and "equal opportunity" in America.
"Of course, in a hierarchical social system like ours, there's never been much room at the top to begin with. Besides, it's already occupied by us — and we like it up here so much that we intend to keep it that way. But at least there's usually someone lower in the social hierarchy you can feel superior to and kick in the teeth once in a while. Even a lowly dishwasher can easily find some poor slob further down in the pecking order to sneer and spit at. So be thankful for migrant workers, prostitutes, and homeless street people.
"Always remember that if everyone like you were economically secure and socially privileged like us, there would be no one left to fill all those boring, dangerous, low-paid jobs in our economy. And no one to fight our wars for us, or blindly follow orders in our totalitarian corporate institutions. And certainly no one to meekly go to their grave without having lived a full and creative life. So please, keep up the good work!
"You also probably don't have the same greedy, compulsive drive to possess wealth, power, and prestige that we have. And even though you may sincerely want to change the way you live, you're also afraid of the very change you desire, thus keeping you and others like you in a nervous state of limbo. So you go through life mechanically playing your assigned social role, terrified what others would think should you ever dare to "break out of the mold."
"Naturally, we try to play you off against each other whenever it suits our purposes: high-waged workers against low-waged, unionized against non-unionized, Black against White, male against female, American workers against Japanese against Mexican against.... We continually push your wages down by invoking "foreign competition," "the law of supply and demand," "national security," or "the bloated federal deficit." We throw you on the unemployed scrap heap if you step out of line or jeopardize our profits. And to give you an occasional break from the monotony of our daily economic blackmail, we allow you to participate in our stage-managed electoral shell games, better known to you ordinary folks as "elections." Happily, you haven't a clue as to what's really happening — instead, you blame "Aliens," "Tree-hugging Environmentalists," "Niggers," "Jews," Welfare Queens," and countless others for your troubled situation.
"We're also very pleased that many of you still embrace the "work ethic," even though most jobs in our economy degrade the environment, undermine your physical and emotional health, and basically suck your one and only life right out of you. We obviously don't know much about work, but we're sure glad you do!
"Of course, life could be different. Society could be intelligently organized to meet the real needs of the general population. You and others like you could collectively fight to free yourselves from our domination. But you don't know that. In fact, you can't even imagine that another way of life is possible. And that's probably the greatest, most significant achievement of our system — robbing you of your imagination, your creativity, your ability to think and act for yourself.
"So we'd truly like to thank you from the bottom of our heartless hearts. Your loyal sacrifice makes possible our corrupt luxury; your work makes our system work. Thanks so much for "knowing your place" — without even knowing it!"

Why are we (the US and its allies) forever looking around for someone new to overfly, bomb and/or invade? Haiti, Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran.... The list just keeps getting longer. Now Libya is in our bomb sights. Do you really want to know why? Well, here's why:
"FACE THE FACTS, America: We’re being used as “the Golem” for World Jewry. No doubt, whatsoever. What is a “Golem” you might ask? Well, back during the middle ages, when the Khazar Ashkenazi Jews lived in eastern Europe, one of their overly imaginative rabbis dreamed up a story (like the holohoax) where he could conjur up a giant monster to slay the Jew’s enemies; which they always seem to have plenty...."

Kneeling Office Chair with Blue Fabric Seat and Wood Frame - WL-SB-310-GG
I bought this kneeling chair at Amazon a month ago and have come to the conclusion that it's just an uncomfortable ride and nothing can be done about it. I got it because of low back pain that was exacerbated by the old chair.
First, the padding in the chair is inadequate, at least in my case. The kneeler frame makes itself known after just a few minutes and after an hour in it my knees are complaining loudly. I'm not big either - 5'9", 165 lbs. No doubt it'd be even more painful for people heavier than myself. Also, my increasingly sore knees are sliding forward continuously and I have to reposition myself back up in it every couple of minutes. This is because the kneeler too closely parallels the floor. It needs more of an upward angle, but unfortunately the kneeler can't be adjusted. The seat has problems too. It's pretty hard and in my case it should be a little more parallel to the floor; but it can't be adjusted either. The back rest *is* adjustable but it has only three settings - none of which fit me, or any other human being I can imagine. There's a high/low adjuster underneath the seat that I've monkey'd with a half dozen times but to no avail. It's just trading one discomfort for another. My back pain has let up somewhat, but now my knees hurt and are growing callouses. And getting up to walk after an hour or more in this thing makes me feel like I'm 90 years old.
In a nutshell here's what's wrong: *we're not all the same size*! To make it comfortable the kneeler and seat need more padding and some way to individually adjust them. The back rest is poorly designed too and is pretty much useless except for a head rest when you're using the chair as a recliner. If you're anywhere near my size I totally recommend you not buy this. It hasn't been too expensive a mistake but I'm looking for something else already.

Charles Jaco and Carl Rochelle were two CNN news actors stationed in Saudi Arabia during Gulf War I. You may recall they appeared regularly on CNN broadcasts at the time. The clip below is a masterpiece of a sort: fake sirens, fake trees, fake reporters, fake news and fake war:

The title of her talk was, "Free Speech and the Internet" - concerning how "freedom of speech" with help from the Internet triumphed in bringing down Egypt's corrupt Mubarak regime. Ray McGovern, a 71 year old peace activist and a former CIA analyst, was violently ejected from the auditorium then arrested for breach of peace for quietly standing up and turning his back on the big H. Beyond this irony is the further irony that America's Zionist occupied government is working very hard behind the scenes to censor OUR Internet; and Hosni Mubarak was all along a puppet of this same government. You couldn't make this stuff up folks.

It’s been a bumpy ride, but life has returned to normal at Chernobyl. At least for subsequent generations of the animals that perished in the disaster and who now flourish in the returning wilderness. People have been slowly returning too. Some legally, some illegally. Moral? It takes a while but mother nature can fix any boo boo.

Yup, worrisome stuff is going on whichever way you look. Things are breaking down all over, and the globe being interconnected in ways like never before, the disaster(s) in Japan are sure to have a wide reverberation. Irrespective of an end of the world scenario, this nuclear catastrophe has the potential to ricochet like a house of dominos.
"Radiation is spewing out as we speak. Evidently, the explosions have indeed damaged the containment structure and suppression chambers surrounding the cores. These water-filled enclosures cool the fuel rods, which are not just uranium as you might think (bad enough) – but infinitely worse — it’s reprocessed plutonium and uranium oxides called MOX. This could be a million times Chernobyl...." The Incogman

Liberals like to cast doubt on all things religious; especially the supernatural. The Shroud of Turin is a big problem for them: despite the best efforts of their sacred "science" - science only confirms its miraculous elements the more.

J.R. Nyquist, with some additions from yours truly, has assembled these prophecies. Though diverse in time, nationality and vocation, the visions carry ominously similar warnings about a latter days epoch of three tremendous wars. The third and last being the "Destroyer of Nations" in which more people will die - in one day - than in all previous wars combined.
Lucia of Fatima, 1940: “A great chastisement will come over all mankind; not today or tomorrow, but in the second half of the twentieth century. What I announced at LaSalette through the children, Melanie and Maximin, I repeat to you now: humanity has not developed as God desires. Mankind has been sacrilegious and has trampled underfoot the gifts of God.
“A time of very severe trials will come upon the Church. Cardinals will oppose Cardinals and Bishops will oppose Bishops. Satan will walk in their midst. In Rome there will be startling changes. What is rotten will fall, and what falls will not survive. The Church will be obscured, and the world will be thrown into chaos.
“Order no longer reigns anywhere. Satan reigns and directs events. He will sow confusion in the minds of scientists, who will create weapons with which to kill millions of people in only a few minutes; and he will cause these weapons to be produced in great numbers.
“If mankind continues to assent to evil, I will be obliged to let My Son’s arm fall. God will then visit His justice upon men. He will punish man more severely than He did with the Great Flood - the mighty along with the lowly.
“A terrible war will come in the second half of the twentieth century. Fire and smoke will fall from heaven. The waters of the ocean will rise to immense heights and turn to foam. Millions will die from hour to hour. Those who survive will envy the dead. Distress, misery and desolation will be everywhere.
“The time is drawing near and the abyss widens beyond hope. There will be no escape: the good will perish with the wicked, the great with the lowly, the princes of the Church with the faithful, the rulers of the nations with their people. Death will be everywhere, raised to triumph by erring men, the helpers of Satan, who imagine themselves masters of the earth. These evils will come suddenly - at a time when no one expects them. Nevertheless they will come as punishment and in accordance with God’s justice.
“The time of times approaches. The end of ends if men do not repent and convert. This conversion must also include the rulers of the world and the Church. Woe, and greater woe, to men because they refuse to repent and convert.
"Afterwards, those who survive will repent. They will call upon God and submit to His Will and become true followers of my Son. I will gather them to me and become their intercessor and mankind will enjoy a period of peace."
Edward Korkowski, 1983: "Don't be fooled! The eastern bloc will feign peaceful compliance: with the opening and shifting of borders, with pact dissolutions or pretended suggestions of neutrality. Then, when you are factored out of Western protection, they will attack you just like unprotected game."
Fatima prophecy, 1917: "Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer and various nations will be annihilated."
Lucia Santos, the seer from Fatima, 1990: "The events taking place in Europe are a deception. Russia will be the scourge for all nations, because it was not converted. Russia attacks the West, and China invades in Asia."
Alois Irlmaier, Bavaria, 1950: "The Russians do not stop anywhere while running in their three wedges. Day and night they race in order to reach the Ruhr district, where the many furnaces and chimneys are.... It will be after a trouble in the Balkans."
Stockert, Munich, 1947: "These tanks will come from the east and will drive with great speed to the west. The Russian tank troops will come up to the Rhine."
Anonymous, Metz, 1872: "A terrible war will ensue. The enemy will come from the east like a flood. In the evening they will call "Peace! Peace!", but the next day they will be before our doors. There will be an early and beautiful spring in the year in which the war starts. The cows will walk through opulent grass in the meadows in April.... The conflict, in which one half the world will fight the other half, will not last long. God will scare the warring factions by producing a terrible natural catastrophe."
Erna Stiglitz, Augsburg, 1975: "At the end of July Russian attack wedges will rapidly advance against Western Europe."
Brother Adam, Wuerzburg, 1949: "At the same time sections of the Russian army will advance by West Prussia, Saxony and Thuringia to the Rhine, in order to reach Calais and gain control of the Channel coast."
Biernacki, Poland, 1984: "Next, the Russian Army will strike against western Germany, exactly up to the French border."
Anton Johannson, Sweden, 1907: "The assault from the east will happen on a wide front from northern Scandinavia into Germany and Italy...."
A Sister of Queen Brigitte Order, Rome (published in 1970): "The Third World War will begin a few days after the murder of a leader in the area of Yugoslavia-Hungary."
Brandt, Germany, 1962: "I saw Russian tanks roll into Rottenburg am Neckar. It was a misty and cloudy day."
Wessel Eilert (Old Jasper), Germany, 1833: "From the east this war will break out. I am frightened of the east. This war will break out very fast."
Abbe Curique, 1872: "A terrible war will follow. The invaders will come from the east like a flood."
Johann Peter Knopp von Ehrenburg, Germany, 1714-1794: "The year before the war will be a good year, followed by three bad years full of misery and suffering.... The war will come when no one expects it; and it will be a war like none seen before, but it will not last long."
Part Two - more detailed visions:
Testament of a Fleeing Pope, 1701: "Europe will be afflicted by horrible punishments when the papal chair is empty. Wickedness, spitefulness and slander will provoke a small nation, which will light the fuse by killing a prince.
Seven realms will rise against the bird with two heads; and the bird with one head. In east and west a great war will destroy many. Famine, epidemics and plague will cause more victims than the war. The time will come, when one can neither buy nor sell. Bread will be assigned and marked. The seas will turn the color of blood.
Carriages will travel without horses. Fiery dragons will fly through the air and belch fire and sulfur, destroying cities and villages. The victor wears a cross on his breast; and between the seven cities with the seven towers the decisive battle takes place. There will be a crucifix between two lime trees. The war will begin when the ears of corn are lean, and crescendo when the cherry trees flower a second time."
Spielbaehn, 1722: "A small nation will arise and bring war into the world. When they build a bridge across the Rhine River near Mondorf, it would be advisable to be among the first to cross over it to the other side. A great barbarian country will fall. With it will fall many false prophets. Many foreign people will be killed here. Poison will fall like rain upon the fields and bring great hunger into Germany.
Finally, a foreign king will rise and win victory for the just cause. The surviving enemies will flee as far as the birch tree country; and there, in the final battle, the the good cause will be victorious. Those who have been hiding in the mountains will return to plant the fields.
Those who escaped the holocaust will return with their children and will live again in peace at home. There will follow a good and happy time."
Fr. Nectou, S.J., ca. 1770: "Paris will be destroyed so completely that twenty years afterwards fathers walking over its ruins with their children will be asked by them what kind of place it was; and they will say: 'My children, this was once a great city - which God destroyed on account of her crimes.'"
Egger Gilge, Austria, 1663-1735: "At a time when all the people read and write and schools look like palaces, faith will decline. When the priest says mass facing the people, know that the time is near. Spiritual and temporal rulers will be eating from the same bowl (i.e. making common cause), then the red-skirted ones will come and it will be terrible."
Brother Adam, Wuerzburg, 1949: "The war will break out in the southeast, but that is only a ruse. Thus the opposition is to be misled; Russia long prepared its plan of attack. Each Russian officer has the order already in his pocket and waits only for the word to move. First, the main thrust is effected against Sweden; and then against Norway and Denmark.
At the same time part of the Russian army will advance through West Prussia, Saxony and Thuringia to the Rhine, in order to gain control of Calais and the Channel coast. In the south the Soviet army will join up with the Yugoslav army. Their armies will confederate to break into Greece and Italy.
The Holy Father will flee. He must flee fast, in order to escape the blood bath. Cardinals fall - and bishops too are victims. Then they will try to advance by Spain and France to the Atlantic coast in order to unite with the army fighting in the north and to complete the military encirclement of the European mainland.
The third Russian army, whose task it is to occupy the left blank areas and to strengthen inland communism -- head office of the communist world government should not be Moscow, but Bamberg -- will be used no more, because the army is disturbed in its advance due to the revolutions in the south and is in rapid dissolution, while a great monarch determined by God will attack the army in the north at the Niederrhein and overpower it with the most modern weapons."
"In Saxony, when the retreating army turns to do battle, it will be defeated and destroyed. Thus the war is terminated in Germany. The remainder of Russia's staggering armies will be pursued deep into Russia and wiped out."
Sister Elena Aiello Italy, 1959 - 1961 "A terrible war will come from the east to the west. Russia with her secret weapons will battle America and will overrun Europe. The Rhine will be overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy will also be harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer terribly."
Andreas Rill, Germany, 1914: Prophecies known as "Feldpostbriefe" (field dispatches): "And finally Russia will attack Germany.... By the third happening (WW3) Russia will invade Germany in the south precisely up to Chiemgau; and the mountains will be on fire. The Russians will leave behind all their munitions. Up to the Danube and the Inn everything is razed to the ground and destroyed.... The rivers are so shallow one will not need a bridge to cross them - beginning with the Isar.
The people won't want to suffer misery, but there will be only misery and suffering. The wicked will fall like snowflakes in a mid-winter blizzard and die. In Russia the ruling elite are destroyed. Their corpses are not buried and remain lying on the ground. Hunger and destruction will be Russia's punishment for its crimes. The religion (Russian Orthodoxy) will be cleared out and cleaned up. The Catholic Church will gain the victory."
Alois Irlmaier, Bavaria, 1950: "Everyone thinks 'Peace! Shalom!' Then it will happen - another Middle East war suddenly looms. Naval forces face off in the Mediterranean - the situation is strained. But the real spark is lit in the Balkans. I see an important man falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him. Then, blow upon blow.
The war begins at sunrise. The farmers sit in the pub playing cards when the foreign soldiers look through the windows and doors. An army comes from the east. Everything occurs very fast. Massed units march from the east into Belgrade and then on to Italy. Thereafter, three armored wedges advance with lightning speed north of the Danube towards the Rhine.
This will occur so quickly that the panicked population flees to the west. Many cars clog the roads. Everything that's an obstacle for the rapidly advancing tanks on highspeed-motorways and other motorways will be crushed. The Rhine Valley will be devastated, mainly by air. Immediately the counterattack comes from across the large water. The yellow dragon invades Alaska and Canada, but doesn't get far. The Great City of the United States will be destroyed and the West Coast will be invaded by Asians, but they will be beaten back."
Airplanes drop a yellow dust in a line from the Black Sea to the North Sea. Thus a death strip is created, as wide as half of Bavaria. In this zone no grass survives, let alone humans. Whoever inhales the dust gets a cramp and dies. Do not open the windows, cover them completely with black paper. All open-standing water becomes poisonous and also all unsealed meals.
After 72 hours it is over, but until then do not go out of the house, and do not look out your windows. Keep the candles burning and pray. Overnight more will die than in the two world wars that went before.
The Russian supply is interrupted.... But then I see an airplane coming from the east, that drops something into the large water, so that something strange will happen. The water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down, then everything is inundated. There is an earthquake and half of England sinks into the sea.
The Third World War will come, but I do not know the year. It will be preceded by signs in the skies which will be seen by millions of people. It will begin on a rainy night, shortly before harvest time, when the corn ears are full. It will begin after the assassination of an eminent politician in Czechoslovakia or Yugoslavia."
Josef Kugelbeer "The Seer of Vorarlberg", 1922: "Overnight the revolution of the communists, together with national socialists, starts! A storm breaks over cloisters and clergymen. At first people will not believe it, so unexpectedly will it commence. Many will be imprisoned and killed.
Everyone flees into the mountains. The Pfaender (a mountain in western Austria) is full of people. Like lightning from cheerful sky the mischief of Russia sweeps through Germany, then on to France, Italy and England. Everywhere tumult and destruction! The Rhine areas are destroyed by airplanes and invading armies. There will be a great famine. People will grind bark, in order to make flour and even the grass on the meadows will be used as food.
There will be revolutions. Many will be locked up and executed. Others flee to the mountains. Paris will be destroyed by fire. Marseille will sink into an abyss which forms around the city. The plague rules. Large black marks appear on the arms. Sulfurous steam fills the world, as if all of hell has been released.
Finally, the Cross appears in the sky. This is the end of the darkness. The earth is a great cemetery. Men come out quietly, frightened, from their houses. The corpses are collected on wagons and buried in mass graves. Neither railways, nor automobiles, nor ships work anymore. The roads and factories are empty. The fast pace of former times has ended."
Josef Stockert, 1947: "Tanks roll over Germany. These tanks will come from the east and will drive with great speed to the west. Where obstacles are put in their way they flatten everything to the ground. In three spearheads they push to the west, along the North Sea, to central Germany and in the south along the alps (as far as I can remember).
People will flee to the west in fear. In France the roads will be clogged with fleeing people and cars which can go neither forward or back. Men and women are used by the hostile army. Those who refuse [orders] are shot.... Food and everything that the enemy army needs is taken from the people. The tank troops of the Russians will come up to the Rhine.
The whole country will be full of strange soldiers who murder and rape women without check. The people will possess neither property nor anything else. Many won't have a house and will have to live in hiding places. Thus I saw the death angels flying and emptying their poison bowls over all mankind. Entire nations will die; and two thirds of mankind, abandoned by their new god. But afterwards will be a fruitful peacetime."
Prokop, the forest herdsman, Zwiesel, 1887-1965: "I sleep and sleep not when I lie in my hut at night. But things I see... Frightening things. I don't sleep because I can hear my bulls out there and I hear the wind and the rain. Once I saw the wind bringing fire and all the trees burning like matches. Another time I saw everything in decay, no humans and no houses, only ruins and debris. And clouds come again and again. Fire-red and flashing - but there is no thunder.
Once, I saw that everything was dark on Waldhaus Street [a road in Zwiesel near to where Prokop lived] and someone was going around with a burning branch shouting, 'Am I the last one? Am I really the only one?' And I saw the sky - yellow like a lemon and hanging far down on the horizon. No birds sang. I could not find any bull or water anymore. Neither on the mountain nor down in the Regen (a river near Zwiesel). Not a drop.
It has to come in such a way, because people believe in nothing anymore. Everyone seems to think that they'll live forever; and of what they appear to be, and can still become. There will come a time when people begin to go crazy! Thinking they can live by shrewdness and not by working. Those who work will become fewer and fewer. And those who live off those who do work will become more numerous. Thus, to rule is easier than to work."
Sepp Wudy, 1914 "As Sepp was called up [World War I] he said he wouldn't be coming back because he was going to die in ice and snow. As it happened, he perished during the war in the Dolomites. Sepp said, 'This is not the last war (WW1), because there will soon come another, and finally the last one will come.
This last one will be more terrible than the others. To know what it will be like at the time: you will be able to speak to your cousin in Vienna from your own house; and if you needed him rapidly he could be with you in one hour. The Bohemian forest will one day be burned like a straw barn. Don't run away when the gray birds are flying. If you see this, know that the end is near and in fact has already begun. It will then be like it was one hundred years ago.
Thus, people will be punished for their wantonness. You have the meal in front of you and are not allowed to eat it, because it causes death; and you have the water but cannot drink it, because it would also mean your death. From the Osser (a mountain at the one time Bavarian-Bohemian border) there will still be a water source and there you can drink. The poisoned air burns into the skin. Put on all the clothing you have and don't let even the tip of your nose remain uncovered. Place yourself into a hole and wait till it is all over. It will not last long. Or look for a cave in the mountains. Take a Kronwittbirl (Juniper berry) into the mouth. This will help. And don't drink milk for (at least) eight weeks. When you lose your hair it has gotten you.
It will be bad, and the later-born ones will have to learn writing and reading anew. The cause will be that the people do not recognize the Devil anymore, because he is dressed beautifully and promises everything to them. When no owl cries any more and the hares come to the house and collapse, then go away from the water and don't mow grass. In these times there will no more be a border with Bavaria, but where the border will be I cannot say." [Wudy lived in Bohemia, few miles away from the border with Bavaria. This border doesn't exist anymore since the Czechs joined the European Union].
However, what can I say? It does not concern you - but tell it to your children and grandchildren. They will have to face it and experience the rest of the story. I also do not understand those that have no modesty at all. People will become increasingly base and godless, so things must come to a head. In the end Europe will be like one hundred years ago.
I see even more, but I can't understand it and can't tell it. With the decline of faith everything goes downhill and everything gets confused. Nobody sees clearly. The elite already believe nothing at all and the masses will go crazy themselves. In church they will play dance music and the parson will sing along while people will dance, but there will be a celestial sign, announcing the beginning of great mischief. There will be a brightness in the north, unlike any seen before, and then the fire will rise up all around.
Go to Bavaria, where Blessed Mary will protect the people; but even there all will be chaotic.
Everything will come like Stormberger said, but he didn't tell everything or they didn't understand him - because it will be worse than bad." [Matthias Stormberger was another Bavarian seer who lived in the same region, about about 75 years before Wudy].
Farmer, tell this to your children: when everything crashes they must run to the mountain. I'm only a farmhand and I don't know if it's a good spirit or a bad spirit showing me these things. But I know they will happen."
Josef Naar, "Fuhrmannl", Bohemia, 1691-1763: "Few humans will survive the great war. The area of Pilsen will figure in the outcome. Who isn't at least two miles from this place, should creep away on hands and feet because everything will be destroyed - bodies and souls.
Signs of the large world war are: when the way to the forest is closed with barriers and wooden locks; when iron roads are built by the forest of Bohemia and around; and humans travel in fiery cars. The last flying road (runway) will be built near Bouban mountain. In the houses the foxes and hare go in and out of the windows. Nettles grow everywhere. Prague too will be destroyed. The whole of Bohemia will be deserted. From afar people will come back to look around."
Farmer Wessel Eilert, "Old Jasper", 1764-1833: "In the evening people will say: 'Peace!' But there is no peace. In the morning the enemy will be at the door. But it will not last long; and those will be safe who have found a good hiding place for only a few days. Also, the retreat will be very rapid. From the east this war will break out. I am frightened of the east. At first our soldiers will go to the borders, soon thereafter returning home calmly. But hardly are they back home when the enemy arrives so suddenly it's as if they grew like mushrooms from out of the ground.
An important battle will take place at the birch trees between Unna, Hamm and Werl. There nations from half the world will face each other. Only a few Russians will get back home to tell of their defeat. First the Polish will come over. They will fight against their oppressors and finally get a king.
One has to throw wagons and wheels in the water or the fleeing enemies will take it all with them. The battle, the victory and the retreat will happen in such rapid succession that one who can hide himself for only a short time will escape the danger. At Cologne the last battle will take place."
Johann Peter Knopp von Ehrenberg ,1714-1794: "Ships without horses come up the Rhine, carriages move without horses - making a buzzing sound. Then, when nobody believes it, there will be a war like never been before. Foreigners will occupy the Rhine, but will be defeated after hard resistance. When the bridge at Cologne is finished, warriors will cross it. Those who are requested [as reinforcements] at last come when everything is over."
Matthias Stormberger, 1775-1835: "Iron roads will be built and iron monsters will bark though the wilderness. Carrriages will travel without horses, and men will fly through the air like birds. The Catholic faith will almost completely disappear. Priests will be badly respected. They will become unpopular due to their way of living.
There will be few good Christians left. The Commandments of God are no longer respected by the aristocracy, and even the lowliest worker! They will not think the greatest injustice to be a sin. As the faith disappears so too the love of others. The poor will be treated with great injustice and be less respected than dogs. After this a mischief will arise that will be much regretted. There will be no order among the people.
When on the outskirts of the forest the iron road is finished, and an iron beast seen, a war will begin that will last twice two years. It will be fought with iron fortresses that move without horses. Two or three decades after this war will come a second war, still larger. Almost all the nations of the world will be involved. Millions will die, without being soldiers. Fire will fall from the sky and many great cities will be destroyed.
After the second great war there will come a third worldwide conflagration. It will determine everything. There will be weapons totally new. In one day more men will die than in all previous wars. The battles will be fought with strange weapons. Gigantic catastrophes will happen. With open eyes, the nations of the planet will go through these catastrophes. People won't know what is happening. Those who do know, and tell, will be silenced.
Overnight it will take place: in a pub in Zwiesel many people will be together, and outside the soldiers will ride over the bridge. The people will run out to the forest. Those who hide themselves at the Fuchsenriegel or the Falkenstein will be spared.
Whoever survives must have an iron will. People will become ill and no one will be able to help them. But it is still a long time till it happens. No one will know, where Zwiesel and Rabenstein (German towns) were. It will be horrible.
In many places the earth will be a great cemetery. The third great war will be the end of many nations. You, my children, won't see the largest mischief. You, my grandchildren, won't see it either. But the third stock, they will easily see it.
Afterwards, things will be different from before. Charity will be renewed; and those who survive will see a time of hope."
Muehlhiasl from Apoig , 1753? - 1830? (Muehlhiasl and Matthias Stormberger could be the same person, though historians are uncertain): "It all starts when a large bird or a fish flies over the forest, [a Zeppelin flew over the Bavarian forest just before the First World War.] then the war comes, then another one; and then the last one will come.
When does it come? Your children will not experience it, but your grandchildren may see the beginnings. A great war will come. A small one begins it, and a big one comes across the water and makes an end to it. The war will come from the east and will end in the west; but the last war will be the total destroyer. When you do not understand the people you meet, it is not far to the terrible day.
Humans have never seen so many fires and felt so much iron before. Everything will be in disorder. Those who survive must have an iron will. But the fighting will not last long. Nothing will help those involved, even if they believed again and prayed to God. They will become ill and no one will be able to help them.
It will all happen so rapidly that no one can believe it. It will happen so rapidly that one who has two loaves of bread under his arm and drops one of them, will not need to bend down to pick it up because one loaf will be enough.
The war will not be over until the death birds stop flying. Afterwards, when you find a cow beside the Danube, it should be given a golden bell.
Those who begin anew will build a church and praise God. Those who survive will say to each other 'Brother, are you still living?' and greet one another saying 'Jesus Christ be praised!' This will not only be with us, but over the whole world. Right will become right again and peace will govern for many years."
Anton Johansson, Sweden, 1858-1909:
1) India will be occupied by China.
2) New diseases used as weapons will cause 25 million people to die.
3) Persia and Turkey will be conquered by what seem to be Russian troops.
4) Revolutionaries will instigate unrest and war in India and Egypt to facilitate the occupation of India and Europe.
5) The Russians will conquer the Balkans.
6) There will be great destruction in Italy.
7) The "red storm" will approach France through Hungary, Austria, northern Italy and Switzerland. France will be conquered from inside and outside.
8) American supply depots will fall into Russian hands.
9) Germany will be attacked from the east.
10) There will be a civil war, Germans will fight against Germans.
11) The Eastern Bloc will cause a civil war in England.
12) Russia will lead a mass attack against the United States so U.S. forces will be prevented from reinforcing Europe.
13) New weapons will cause huge hurricanes and firestorms in America, where the largest cities will be destroyed.
Mitar Tarabic, 1829-1899: "When this horrible war starts woe to those armies that fly through the skies. Better off to be those who fight on ground and water. People waging this war will have their scientists who will invent new and strange cannon-balls. When they explode, these cannon-balls, instead of killing, will cast a spell over all that lives; people, armies and livestock. This spell will make them sleep, and sleep they will instead of fighting, and after they will come back to their senses.
We [Serbia] will not fight in this war, but others will do battle over our heads. Burning people will fall from the sky over Pozega [a town in Serbia]. Only one country at the end of the world, surrounded by great seas, as big as Europe, will live in peace, without any troubles.... Upon it or over it not a single canon-ball will explode! Those who run and hide in the mountains with three crosses will find shelter and will be saved to live afterwards in abundance, happiness and love, because there will be no more wars."
The monk of Werl, Cologne, 1801: "There will be a terrible war; on one side will be the people who live where the sun rises, on the other all those who live where the sun sets. Russia will send out enormous masses of soldiers and Cossack cavalry. One will fight a long time without decisive result, until finally one comes to the country of the Rhine. There, one will fight so much during three days that the water of the Rhine will be reddened.
This war will come when there is general contempt for religion. When nobody wants to obey any more, when one cannot distinguish the rich person from the poor, when the people give themselves up entirely to sensual pleasures, when iniquity reaches its climax believe that this time is close. What follows this battle: Peace will be returned to you, Germany! France will recover its king. The Shepherd will bring His flock to its fold."
The "Blind young man from Prague", 14th century:
1) One and one more and a half time there will be foreign rulers over Bohemia.
2) At a time when one ruler is over Bohemia for more than 60 years, a big war will start after a regicide.
3) Then, the crowned heads will fall like ripe apples from the trees.
4) The Bohemian lion will rule himself and won't be subordinated any more.
5) Two peoples will live in Bohemia.
6) The first (or ruling) people will persecute second people, and give them no freedom.
7) Until a powerful one comes.
8) Then, the lords in Prague will throw freedom to the second people, but too late.
9) There will come another war between all the peoples of the world.
10) Germany will become a large heap of rubble and only the region of the blue stones (the Alps) will be spared.
11) The big war will come to an end when the cherries blossom.
12) As long as the cherries grow, I wouldn't want to be a German.
13) But when the cherries are harvested, I wouldn't want to be a Czech.
14) Twice the Bohemian land will be sieved: the first time only as many Germans will remain as there is place under an oak.
15) Again the Czech lion will rule over Bohemia, but it's brilliance is over.
16) Then there will be still only one people in Bohemia.
17) A new war will break out and this will be the shortest of all. The people will destroy the world and the world will destroy the people. Bavaria has to suffer much. This happens because mankind will leave God, and God will purify them. When people attempt to take the Creator's place the end is near.
18) The people in Bohemia will be destroyed by the war, and everything in the country will be buried.
19) Twice the Bohemian land will be sieved: the second time only as many Czechs will remain as there is space on one hand.
20) There won't be peace in Europe until Prague is a heap of rubble.
23) The revenge comes from across the large water.
21) At the [time of the] cherry blossom Prague will be destroyed.
24) When for the second time the cherries ripen, the refugees from Bohemia will sadly return to their looms and fields.
25) But it won't be many.
26) And these few will ask each other: 'Where did you hide?' and 'Where were you?'
27) The farmers will crack the whip behind the plow and say: 'Here was Prague!'
28.) All over the world will be a new age, which will be called the Golden One."
The Sybille of Prague, ?-1658: "Still your rule lasts, my loved Prague, but you too will face the last hour. Prague, my dear Prague, you will find a rare and terrible end. A breath goes through your lanes, sweet and warm; surprised mankind will feel it. With horribly distorted faces thousands begin to rest and freeze despite the warmth. It comes to the end. Ten musty bells of the last church clang in the air. The slow and muddy tides of the Moldau roll as a terrible hurricane roars across the country, across the city.
Yellow-grey dust and heavy, poisonous clouds take the breath from humans and cattle. The Hradschin is set on fire, in the city the walls burst. Everywhere fire rages. The earth trembles, vibrated by the mighty quake. Deep gaps do open, devouring the dead and the living. The graves open as ransacked by spirit hands, and the skeletons smile with cruel laughter. Everything sinks in the unfathomably black depth.
From Vyschrad a tremendous fireball comes along, rocks fly through the air and all around blazes a sea of fire. Everything that mankind's diligence has created lies in debris and ash. One can only hear the roar of the storm. Life has gone out. I only see rubble and corpses. Slowly the clouds disappear where once the proud cathedral dome had been. I see a bloody-red fireball. It is over!
Prague, your fate has been fulfilled! Where are your houses, proud city? Why do gloomy tides flood the coasts of a deserted heath? Horrible worms eat body and spirit with frightening effect. Weeds and ruins and poisonous clouds cover the countryside. Is this the harvest of humanity's seed?"
