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.

Japanese knotweed or Polygonum cuspidatum is a perennial plant that belongs to the buckwheat family. While it is considered to be an aggressive weed by many, it is also edible — at a certain time of the year. Japanese knotweed also contains vitamins and minerals and has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. In a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers from Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine in China investigated the bioactivity of Japanese knotweed against hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). They discovered that the roots of Japanese knotweed are good sources of STAT3 signaling inhibitors, which are now being studied for its potential anticancer properties.
For the First Time Since 9/11, Federal Gov’t Takes Steps to Prosecute the Use of Explosives to Destroy WTCs
by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:
A team of lawyers has successfully petitioned the federal government, by presenting them with evidence indicating that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers.
In what can be described as a monumental step forward in the relentless pursuit of 9/11 truth, a United States Attorney has agreed to comply with federal law requiring submission to a Special Grand Jury of evidence that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers.
Wise Man’s Parable Shows How Freedom Dies In America: This ‘Nightmare’ Illustrates How America Could Descend Into Civil War And Become An Imperial Dictatorship
by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, All News Pipeline:
Founders of our constitutional republic studied Julius Caesar’s books, “The Gallic Wars” and “The Civil Wars,” to learn why ancient Rome’s republic failed, descending into civil war and becoming an imperial dictatorship.
Intriguingly, missing from Caesar’s books — written by one of world history’s greatest generals and statesmen — are their first and last pages that, like books today, would be the introduction and summation, saving for first and last those thoughts most profound.

14 Facts That Prove That America’s Absolutely Pathetic System Of Public Education Deserves An ‘F’ Grade
by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
One thing that almost everyone can agree upon is that our system of public education is broken. We spend far more money on public education than anyone else in the world, and yet the results are depressing to say the least. Considering how much we are putting into education, we should be producing the best students on the entire planet, but it just isn’t happening. Personally, I attended public schools from kindergarten all the way up through law school, and the quality of education that I received was extremely poor. Even on the collegiate level, most of the courses were so “dumbed down” that even the family dog could have passed them. And of course millions of other people all over the country would say the same sorts of things about their own educations. Many refer to what is happening to our society as “the dumbing down of America”, and if we don’t get things fixed the United States is on course to become a second class nation.

For practicing his first amendment right to film in public, an innocent man was held at gunpoint by an officer who feared for his life over the man filming.
Mesa, CA — Filming the police is entirely legal in every state. However, all too often, we will see police officers overstep their authority and arrest, attack, and assault innocent people for the constitutionally protected act of documenting their behavior in public. A video shared with the Free Thought Project this week shows just how dangerous a cop’s ignorance of the law can be.
In the video below, an entirely innocent man, doing nothing other than practicing his first amendment right to film in public, was assaulted with a deadly weapon. Because a police officer feared for his life over a camera, he chose to pull his weapon and threaten an innocent man’s life.

In his new book Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers details the Democrat Party’s reliance on illegal voting and their efforts to keep those vulnerabilities intact.
Here, Breitbart News sits down with Eggers to discuss voter fraud, how it goes ignored by the media and politicians, and the Democrats’ push for giving noncitizens the right to vote.
The reason I’ve been interested in covering immigration is that there has never been enough data and information readily available to the public on the issue. Did you find this same problem when tackling the issue of election fraud for your book?
from True Pundit:
To add to the growing scandal, Jack Posobiec of One America News reported Wednesday that one of the FBI agents who was in the room when Flynn was interrogated by the bureau believes the disgraced national security adviser was unfairly railroaded — and Comey was behind it.
“FBI Agent Joe Pientka who interviewed General Flynn plans to testify against Comey and McCabe, adds ‘It was all Comey,’” Posobiec posted on Twitter.
