The first Panama Canal and the first Suez Canal were built by the Chinese and the Egyptians
by Gavin Menzies

Some months ago we started serious research into the DNA of the native Indian peoples of North America. This quickly threw up a mystery:  why were there so many clusters of Indian peoples on the borders of Panama, Ecuador and Colombia – no less than nine different peoples – who had DNA with such strong affinities to the Chinese and Japanese? Obviously Chinese and Japanese seafarers had settled in those areas – but why choose such an inhospitable country where there appeared little opportunity for trade compared with the rich Maya civilisation further north or the Incas further south? Why settle in the jungle?

Either side of the Atrato River (which flows from south east Panama  into the Caribbean have DNA which Professor Gabriel Novick and colleagues have summarised as follows: “Close similarity between the Chinese and native Americans suggests recent gene flow from Asia”. The same can be said of Professor Novick’s description of the Guambiano and Ingano peoples who live nearby where the Rio San Juan reaches the Pacific. The people who live either side of those two rivers – the Nganama/Wanana – “are clustered closer to Japanese people than to other American natives” (Fideas E Leon S and colleagues).

Professor Fideas E Leon S and colleagues also found that some 200 miles further south “the Cayapa or Chichi from Ecuador [have genes] molecularly similar to those found in south east Asian and Japanese people”. Professors Tulio Arends and Galengo studied “the occurrence in transferins in 91 Yupa Indians, 69 of whom belong to the Pariri tribe and 22 to the Shaparu tribe. They inhabit the foothills of the Sierra Perija (latitude 9o to 110 north, longitude 720 40’ to 730 30’ west)…”

“In 58 per cent of the Yupa Indians of Venezuela there is a slow moving transferin electrophoretically indistinguishable from that which to date has only been found in Chinese. This finding is additional evidence of the existence of a racial link between South American Indians and Chinese.”

In short, between Lake Maracaibo (which can be clearly identified on maps such as the Cantino published before Europeans reached that part of America) and the estuary of the Rio San Juan there are fourteen Indian peoples who have Chinese or Japanese genes – a discovery made by seventeen dedicated geneticists.

When the first Europeans arrived in that part of the world they found coconuts planted along the Pacific coasts and on islands off the coasts – coconuts being plants which originated in the Far East. They also found Chinese ship dogs and Chinese rice.  Drake captured a Chinese junk trading between North and South America whose pilot had a chart showing the Pacific.  Taking all this evidence in the round, it seems to me inescapable that the Chinese and Japanese lived in this small part of the Isthmus of Darien and created settlements there before the first Europeans arrived – for, as mentioned in earlier talks, the first Europeans found Chinese people already settled on the Pacific coasts of both North and South America. The puzzle is, why should this be?

A clue may be obtained, as always, from medieval maps, which were published before Europeans reached the Pacific coasts of North America, notably the Waldseemueller. To my mind, the Waldseemueller accurately charts the Pacific coast of North America from 500 north right down to the approaches to the Straits of Magellan in the southern part of South America. Perhaps even more interesting, the Waldseemueller chart, which was published in 1507, does not show the Straits of Magellan – this chart was available for the public at large to purchase. However, smaller globes which Waldseemueller produced at the same time for his private client, do show the Straits of Magellan. So before Magellan set sail Waldseemueller knew the Straits of Magellan existed. As mentioned earlier in another talk, Magellan also had seen a chart of the Straits of Magellan in the King of Portugal’s library before he set sail on his circumnavigation of the world. He referred to that chart when he was passing through the Straits of Magellan.

The Waldseemueller also showed an opening between the Atlantic and Pacific at 80 north – that is, the latitude of the southern parts of the Isthmus of Darien where there is this cluster of Indian peoples who have Chinese and Japanese DNA. Pedro Menedez de Aviles, the first Castilian viceroy of Florida, believed that there was a canal which linked Pacific and Atlantic, for he found the wrecks of Chinese junks off the coast of Florida and stated that these could not have been there unless there was a passage similar to the Straits of Magellan. His biographer, Carlos Prince reported, “Chinese . . . with Tartairs, Japanese and Koreans . . . crossed the maritime stretch into the kingdom of Quivira, populating Mexico, Panama, Peru and other eastern countries of the Indies. In short, taking these reports together with the Synopsis of Evidence on my website, reveals a mountain of evidence which corroborates what Carlos Prince said – Chinese, Japanese and Koreans did indeed populate Panama, as is evidenced by the DNA of today’s people.

How Tesla will change the world…

This is Part 2 of a four-part series on Elon Musk’s companies. For an explanation of why this series is happening and how Musk is involved, start with Part 1.

A Wait But Why post can be a few different things. One type of WBW post is the “let’s just take this whole topic and really actually get to the bottom of it so we can all completely get it from here forward.” The ideal topic for that kind of post is one that’s really important to our lives, and that tends to come up a lot, but that’s also hugely complex and confusing, often controversial with differing information coming out of different mouths, and that ends up leaving a lot of people feeling like they don’t totally get it as well as they “should.”

The way I approach a post like that is I’ll start with the surface of the topic and ask myself what I don’t fully get—I look for those foggy spots in the story where when someone mentions it or it comes up in an article I’m reading, my mind kind of glazes over with a combination of “ugh it’s that icky term again nah go away” and “ew the adults are saying that adult thing again and I’m seven so I don’t actually understand what they’re talking about.” Then I’ll get reading about those foggy spots—but as I clear away fog from the surface, I often find more fog underneath. So then I research that new fog, and again, often come across other fog even further down. My perfectionism kicks in and I end up refusing to stop going down the rabbit hole until I hit the floor.

For example, I kind of got the Iraq situation, but there was a lot of fog there too—so when I wrote a post about it, one fog-clearing rabbit hole took me all the way back to Muhammad in 570AD. That was the floor. Digging into another part of the story brought me to the end of World War I. Another brought me to the founding of ISIS.

Hitting the floor is a great feeling and makes me realize that the adults weren’t actually saying anything that complicated or icky after all. And when I come across that topic again, it’s fun now, because I get it and I can nod with a serious face on and be like, “Yes, interest rates are problematic” like a real person.

I’ve heard people compare knowledge of a topic to a tree. If you don’t fully get it, it’s like a tree in your head with no trunk—and without a trunk, when you learn something new about the topic—a new branch or leaf of the tree—there’s nothing for it to hang onto, so it just falls away. By clearing out fog all the way to the bottom, I build a tree trunk in my head, and from then on, all new information can hold on, which makes that topic forever more interesting and productive to learn about. And what I usually find is that so many of the topics I’ve pegged as “boring” in my head are actually just foggy to me—like watching episode 17 of a great show, which would be boring if you didn’t have the tree trunk of the back story and characters in place.

So when it was time to start what I had labeled in my head as “the Tesla post,” I knew this was going to be one of those posts. To understand if and why Tesla Motors matters, you have to understand both the story of cars and the story of energy—two worlds I somehow am simultaneously confused by and tremendously sick of. Just hearing someone say “climate change” or “energy crisis” or “tailpipe emissions” makes me kind of gag at this point—just too much politics, too many annoying people, too much misinformation on all sides, and it’s just hard to know how much I actually care and if there can be a solution to all of it anyway. So I did what I do when my tortoise shits when I’m out of the apartment and then spends hours walking through it and tracking it across everything, including the walls somehow—I rolled up my sleeves, took a deep breath, whispered, “Be a man, Tim,” and started scraping through layers of shit. If I have to live in a world with people arguing constantly about energy and oil and greenhouse gases and incentive programs, I might as well build myself a proper tree trunk.

After weeks of reading and asking questions and writing, I’ve emerged from the tortoise sewage with something that toes the line between a long blog post and a short book. I could have broken this into multiple posts, but it’s all one story and I wanted to keep it all together. It’ll be a bit of a time investment, but I think you’ll come out of it with a sturdier tree trunk about all of this than you have now. And as it turns out, when it comes to this topic, we may be witnessing a very awesome moment in history without quite realizing it yet.

Russian and Chinese marines advancing in Syria sounding alarm bells of Armaggedon

Fact or fiction?

The recent arrival of the Russian Marines and Air Force to the Syrian port-city of Tartous has generated a significant amount of interest around the world, as the possibility of Russia’s direct military intervention becomes the focal point of the war on ISIS. To add to Russia piling up its military strength in Syria, on Tuesday morning, a Chinese naval vessel traveled through Egypt’s Suez Canal to enter the Mediterranean Sea, scheduled to arrive in the coming weeks (6 weeks) to the port-city of Tartous in Syria that will join the Russian presence in Syria. And, to add more salt to Obama’s injury, Russia is now getting militarily involved, not just in Syria, but also in Iraq, as it moved, without radar detection, 24 attack jets from bases in Russia through Iran before traveling into Iraq.


Putin will show he means business with the air strikes on ISIS, which began earlier this week and which were accompanied by ground attacks near the Kweiris air base in the east of Aleppo province, where government troops have long been surrounded by ISIS, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Vladimir Putin‘s explicit promise to go ahead with airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria with or without the help of the US effectively marks the end of Washington’s years-old effort to destabilize and ultimately remove the Assad regime.

To send the clear message to Washington, Putin appears to have a contingency that involves another world power that was absent from the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition: China.

Subscibe to The Sons of Liberty Media Newsletter to Keep Up to Date on the News You won’t get from the State-run Media

Russia has made it abundantly clear that they are taking an active role in this conflict, but the news of the Chinese military to Syria provides more insight into their contingency.

Many are excited about more force coming to Syria to destroy ISIS and ask, since Russia is beginning military operations: will Russia begin to coordinate with the U.S. to destroy ISIS?

Such cooperation or intent to destroy ISIS is food for the sheep. If Russia or the U.S. is bent on destroying ISIS, why then is Russia not joining the U.S.-led Coalition and why is Russia not seeking the assistance of the neighboring Arab countries to combat ISIS? If the idea is to destroy ISIS, why would the United States, which is also waging its own aerial campaign against ISIS, reject help? While the media argues on the strategy of both sides to combat ISIS, everyone knows that the U.S. is able to squash ISIS in few weeks. Why, then, has the U.S. had minimal success in obstructing ISIS growth in Syria and Iraq?

Obviously, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf would object to Russia’s involvement, since their main goal is to destroy Shiite expansion represented by Iran, and Bashar Al-Assad is their stronghold in the Levant.

So, as it seems, the evidence is clear: the military buildup has nothing to do with fighting ISIS. Simply put, the two major military superpowers–Russia and the U.S.–appear to be at it again; both are actively flexing their muscles through their proxies where the U.S. supports the rebels and Russia supports the Syrian Army. With Russia moving its chips, Turkey, any Sunni extremists, and/or CIA-trained “freedom fighters” intent on seizing control of the country will now need to go through Russia and Iran.

The third players, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, including the Gulf States, fear Iran’s encroachments and the loss of their sphere of influence on the Sunni Muslim world. This is what will become the crux of the whole matter.

So, to answer our original question, all of the players have a use for ISIS. To completely destroy ISIS would prevent all the excuses for one party or the other to wield its global dominance.

The sooner the sheep put this equation in their heads, the sooner they will begin to understand the Armageddon which is a world conflict centered in the Middle East.

ISIS is useful for the U.S., as well as for Russia and Turkey. Even Japan has major use for ISIS, using it as the excuse for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s re-interpretation of the Japanese constitution in regards to weapons, allowing Japan to also play a stronger role in global affairs.

Again, Armageddon is a global affair where global powers arise in a showdown that is centered in the Middle East.

The crucial issue to understand is that the strong Russian military commitment to redress the military balance on the ground would jeopardize Turkey’s calculations concerning Syria.

During Erdogan’s latest visit to Moscow, which came on the heels of Russia’s latest military buildup in Syria, Putin shunned Erdogan. Turkey’s quest to create a safe zone within Syrian territory is hampered by Russia’s involvement. To add more problems, not only for Washington, but also for Turkey, China (the biblical “armies from the east”) showed up. Beijing made a concerted effort this year to project the growing power and influence of the PLA navy. That effort has, so far, involved an unprecedented land reclamation effort in the Spratlys, a “rescue” operation in the Yemeni port of Aden, and a surprise appearance off the coast of Alaska.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke on Sept. 22 of his then-upcoming trip to Moscow, regarding “The Syria question” now that Russia (North to Turkey) and China (east of Turkey) have Erdogan’s plans in check. What Erdogan said sounded right from Daniel 11:44 “But then unpleasant news from the east and the north will alarm him” (Daniel 11:44):


Key Govt claims NZ needs Consul-General and a $6.2 million mansion in Hawaii…

Grandiose ideas:


Our pretend government aka corporation is borrowing $27 mill a day to keep us afloat, and has spent $6.2 mill on a house that is double the value of surrounding houses. It’s not a house it’s a mansion fit for a king. Our corporation is also flogging off our state housing, whilst many Kiwis are homeless and doesn’t give a toss about kids in poverty. Here then is a blatant example of ‘let them eat cake’. Something has gone terribly wrong with this country that once stamped out poverty and homelessness. Our CEO is a bankerfolks, he’s not a leader. He simply poses as one.

In case you missed it, the corporatization of our nation & its former government departments has led to a bottom line of maximizing profits. People no longer matter.

Untitled$6.2 mill mansion for NZ Diplomat

“Would you like to own a $6.2 million house in Hawaii? Good news – you already do. But bad news – the Government has bought the place for a diplomat.

It has inspired Story to start up a brand new segment called Silly Spending.

One of the many real estate ads for the home describes it as “ultimate modern luxury”.

“The crystal chandeliers are a great touch. The whole effect is one of a jewel box.”

It is 570 square metres of exceptional floor plan. It’s about four times bigger than your house, if you live in an average New Zealand home.

It’s got a pool and spa deck and it’s one block from the beach. The house is almost twice the average price of houses around it.

We bought the pad last year for diplomat Rob Kaiwai. He’s New Zealand’s first-ever Consul-General in Hawaii. We set up that posting last year to help out the 14 diplomatic postings we already had across the United States.

If you’re thinking he might need his house for high-powered meetings, that’s what the office in downtown Honolulu is for.”

NZ TPPA activists claim refusal to release negotiating texts unlawful…

Tim Groser should reconsider earlier decisions to withold documents…

NZ TPP Activists Claim Refusal To Release Negotiating Texts ‘Unlawful’
September 29 2015 | From: WakeUpKiwi via NationalBusinessReview

Ministers can’t make blanket refusals to release documents under the Official Information Act without reviewing them first or by arguing the only information that could be made public would be “anodyne,” the High Court at Wellington has been told.

Several organisations concerned at the secrecy surrounding negotiation of the Trans Pacific Partnership trade and investment agreement are seeking a declaration from the court that would require Trade Minister Tim Groser to reconsider earlier decisions to withhold documents relating to the negotiations.

Matthew Palmer QC is representing the claimants, Consumer NZ, Ngati Kahungunu, Greenpeace, Oxfam, the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, the NZ Nurses Organisation, and the Tertiary Education Union in an action initiated by the University of Auckland law school’s TPP critic, Professor Jane Kelsey, who claim the process of deciding to withhold information requested so far has been unlawful.

Justice David Collins, who is hearing the application, reacted rarely during Dr Palmer’s submissions but asked him before the lunch break to reflect on a recent decision “about the extent to which courts should give direction.”

Dr Palmer argued the New Zealand government should not be “contracting out” its legal obligations under the OIA by making it subservient to the requirements of a strict confidentiality agreement between the 12 TPP nation

Justice Collins observed that such a decision “could be consistent” with the act.

Dr Palmer responded:

“Our submission is that if there was no other reason for information to be withheld, that agreement cannot provide an additional reason.”

Much of the morning’s arguments revolved around the fact that neither the minister nor the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had undertaken a full review of the documents in question to determine whether parts that were either in the public domain already or were “anodyne” and uncontroversial and could be released.

“The minister failed to undertake a basic element by failing to assess the information itself,” said Palmer.

” That’s the basis of a request for a determination. Blanket refusals are not contemplated by the act.”

Dr Palmer also dwelled on the approach being taken by the European Union, which has been willing to allow release of negotiating texts relating to the European-US equivalent of TPP, known as TTIP, and comments by the European Ombudsman suggesting the traditional secrecy surrounding trade negotiations is counter-productive to public trust in such processes. The hearing is continuing.
