Burningly it came on me all at once,
This was the place! those two hills on the right,
Crouched like two bulls locked horn in horn in fight;
While to the left, a tall scalped mountain … Dunce,
Dotard, a-dozing at the very nonce,
After a life spent training for the sight!
What in the midst lay but the Tower itself?
The round squat turret, blind as the fool’s heart,
Built of brown stone, without a counter-part
In the whole world. The tempest’s mocking elf
Points to the shipman thus the unseen shelf
He strikes on, only when the timbers start.
Not see? because of night perhaps?—why, day
Came back again for that! before it left,
The dying sunset kindled through a cleft:
The hills, like giants at a hunting, lay,
Chin upon hand, to see the game at bay,—
“Now stab and end the creature—to the heft!”
Not hear? when noise was everywhere! it tolled
Increasing like a bell. Names in my ears
Of all the lost adventurers my peers,—
How such a one was strong, and such was bold,
And such was fortunate, yet, each of old
Lost, lost! one moment knelled the woe of years.
There they stood, ranged along the hill-sides, met
To view the last of me, a living frame
For one more picture! in a sheet of flame
I saw them and I knew them all. And yet
Dauntless the slug-horn to my lips I set,
And blew. “_Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came._”
This is an excerpt from the Robert Browning poem that inspired Stephen Kings magnum opus, The Dark Tower.
I’ll never forget the moment on television back in 1987, when Jim Bakker… Continue reading
“But they can rule by fraud, and by fraud eventually acquire access to the tools they need to finish the job of killing off the Constitution.’
‘What sort of tools?’
‘More stringent security measures. Universal electronic surveillance. No-knock laws. Stop and frisk laws. Government inspection of first-class mail. Automatic fingerprinting, photographing, blood tests, and urinalysis of any person arrested before he is charged with a crime. A law making it unlawful to resist even unlawful arrest. Laws establishing detention camps for potential subversives. Gun control laws. Restrictions on travel. The assassinations, you see, establish the need for such laws in the public mind. Instead of realizing that there is a conspiracy, conducted by a handful of men, the people reason—or are manipulated into reasoning—that the entire population must have its freedom restricted in order to protect the leaders. The people agree that they themselves can’t be trusted.”
― Hagbard Celine, The Eye In The Pyramid, 1975

You know what? If they don’t make the DT live action movie, I think an animation series would do it just as much, if not more justice! What do you think?
I’ve spent a few years researching the Montauk Project and the Philadelphia Experiment to discover what really happened. One involved a ship vanishing from one area and reappearing in another some 200 miles away. Two sailors jumped off the boat while it was “in between dimensions” and ended up in the future. The other deals with a military base in Montauk, that conducted time travel experiments on children, based on the outcome of the Philadelphia Experiment. The connection and stories behind these mysteries are mind-blowing. I was fortunate enough to speak directly to the author of “The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time Travel”, Peter Moon. It was the most out of this world conversation I’ve ever had with someone so damn intelligent! It really helped convincing me that these tales were not b.s. After researching dozens of books, his was the best and most accurate. He worked directly with the men involved in these phenomenons and clearly has the best insight. Check out this video…PLEASE!!! Even if you can’t watch the full thing in one shot, bookmark it and continue when you can. Believe me, it is worth it.
