Montague Keen – 18 March 2012

As the Irish all over the world celebrate being Irish on what they see as their day, most of them are blissfully unaware of the decisions that were made at the Council of Nicea, to destroy the people of Ireland and their religion of love, preached by the Druids. The Cabal stole the real history of Ireland and its language, and they made slaves of its people. Though the indoctrination that followed was barbaric, it failed to break the Irish Spirit.

Visionkeeper – Where Is The Key? – 18 March 2012

Lucas – Germany Has New President Elected After Resignation Wulff – 18 March 2012

After the German president, Christian Wulff,  resigned due to  being caught up in a corruption scandal involving a dubious loan and some more not very presidential behaviour the new German president is elected. His name is  Joachim Gauck.   As a former East-German human rights activist and Lutherian pastor  he had already before the vote the backing of most political parties.  Therefore no surprises. Good luck in restoring faith in the democracy and presidency.

Love and Light,
