from Rogue Money:
Barcelona, archives of courtesy, shelter of the foreigners, hospital of the poor, father-land of the brave, vengeance of the offended and pleasant correspondence of firm friendship, and in site, and in beauty, unique”– Don Miguel de Cervantes, author of “Don Quijote”
Once again we come together as a planet to witness yet another senseless terror attack. This time, the location of choice was beautiful Barcelona on a carefree summer esplanade called Las Ramblas.

As usual, we look at the numbers, at the codes, at the signs. What is similar, what is not similar, to Manchester, to Nice, to name-your-attack-here?
The first thing that popped out, of course, is the date. The 17th of August of 2017. 17-08-17, if written in European format. As my twitter friend noted below, we also saw the body count: 13 dead, 50 wounded (subject to change as this situation is ongoing.) However, I will point out, for several hours, the MSM was reporting only one or two dead. I found this strange because official sources, like El Mundo and RussiaToday had the correct figures posted as soon as government officials announced them.

Now, one thing I DID NOT see while skimming through dozens of news images, were shoeless feet. As you remember from our RM guest, Ole Dammegard, a sure sign of crisis actors in play are photos staged so that shoes are off on one or two feet. I really looked hard for this, but only came across two photos like that. Considering that this was a flip-flop kind of a day, you would expect to see people running with shoes off. But, no, I did not find that to be the case in this instance.
Nevertheless, we have enough codes in those figures of 17, 13, and 50 to rouse suspicion. From our friend W, we know that 17 is the Osiris number, the date of his death. The number 50 might still be important as a Jubilee “New World” kind of a number; this was the figure reported of the dead in the Orlando, Florida attack. Five is also the number of death to enemies and defense from attacks. The 13 goes without saying; the sign of bad luck especially for the Templars. And speaking of Templars, let us remember the historical significance of Barcelona.
