If you have ever researched the Rhesus blood grouping system, you probably already know that there is something mighty peculiar about the rhesus negative status. The Rhesus blood grouping system is differentiated from the ABO system, dealing with separate groups of antigens.
First, to give some foundation information on blood grouping: the ABO blood grouping system reflects whether a person has the antigen “A”, or the antigen “B”, or has both, or neither. “O” simply stands for zero, or “null”, having no A or B antigens.
The Rhesus blood group system contains some 50 different antigens, but the one of great importance is the “D” antigen. It is the D which determines the rh status of an individual.
This, the most immunogenic of the Rhesus factors, is key in knowing what individuals can donate blood or tissue to another without complications. The presence of a D antigen will not be…

On the morning of June 30, 1956, a TWA Super Constellation L-1049 and a United Airlines DC-7 took off from Los Angeles International Airport. The two airplanes flew more or less in the same direction but eventually separated, following their own flight paths. TWA was en route to Kansas City, Missouri, while the United Airlines flight was destined for Chicago. When they crossed the eastern portion of the Grand Canyon, the planes diverted from their path, and at 21,000 feet, the two planes collided in midair, resulting in the most tragic American commercial-airline crash of its time. The TWA plane fell out of the sky and impacted the inner gorge of the Grand Canyon about a mile from where the United flight impacted the inner Canyon. There were no survivors among the 128 people aboard the two planes. Considered the “impossible accident,” the 1956 Grand Canyon crash…

In my lifetime, I’ve probably been told the rumor of the Ultimate Warrior being dead at least a dozen times… well, the rumor isn’t a rumor anymore. Jim Hellwig, better known as the Ultimate Warrior, has died of an apparent heart attack at 55 years of age. Though my grandmother has always told me if I don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all, I can’t help but express my opinion on someone I have never understood an ounce of their popularity. His promos ran on and on, sometimes hard to understand and other times completely outlandish. His in ring work was, for lack of a better term, shitty. He held Vince McMahon up for money, refusing to do business. Not to mention the absolutely horrid person he was, his homophobic, beyond ultra conservative viewpoints on the world when he himself was addicted to steroids, at least for…

Dear Medical Practitioners in the United States of America
What bothers me about America is that of the 20,000 doctors and surgeons in Boston, from Harvard-MIT MD-Phds to the Dana-Farber super-specialists in every healthcare related field esoterica, not one can stand up to call a spade a spade? The physician I spoke to privately on Jeff Bauman’s Boston Marathon explosion injury images broadcast in the newsmedia (see Domestic Terror and Police-State), with just one look at the photos told me this cannot possibly be real.
Yet no medical practitioner, professor of medicine, EMT, EMS, man of science or man of commonsense from Boston to San Francisco has publicly made that call that the exploded legs victim looking alert and not bleeding to death while being strolled on Boylston Street in a wheelchair instead of a gurney…

Hugo Chavez was never brain dead and is not dead, he is gone — gone from this earth. First he went underground, then he jump-roomed to Mars, his last words, “The hell with the Heavy Mass Object and the reptilian, I am heading to Cydonia.”
His new home was secured by Venezuela oil profits transferred to the Mars Central Bank, where many of the Cabal Elite, Knights Templars and evil banksters have been heading to before the earth plunges into complete hellish chaos and under the control of Alestair Crowley (“the Beast”), the clones of Obama (the “anti-Christs”), and the Anti-Pope (“the Dragon”).
