On August 10, 2014, there will be a full moon. This full moon will be the closest moon encounter with Earth in 2014, thus it will appear to be the largest full moon of the year.
It's called a super moon, the closest moon of 2014. According to NASA, this full moon will be 14 percent closer and 30 percent brighter than other full moons in 2014.
Certain Native American tribes along the Great Lakes refer to this August moon as Sturgeon Moon, also called Full Green Corn Moon. The Ojibway call it Blueberry Moon and the Dakota Sioux call it Moon When All Things Ripen.
On August 10, 1944, 70 years earlier, a secret meeting took place at the Maison Rouge Hotel in Strasbourg in eastern France whereby three Nazi officials met with an elite group of German industrialists to plan for Germany's post-war recovery. They created a document called the Red House Report, detailing how they would rebuild the German economy by sending money through Switzerland.
As the Third Reich was crumbling around them, they were laying the foundation for the Fourth Reich. The plan was not to pursue the physical occupation of Europe (and the world) but rather to gain control by economic means. This would be accomplished by creating a centrally-controlled European community.
"In 50 years' time, nobody will think of nation states." Nazi propaganda chief, Joseph Goebbels.
It took a bit longer, but 70 years later the European Union (EU) has become this centrally-controlled European community.
The EU is controlled by the European Commission, an unelected bureaucracy which proposes all the European community laws. These proposed laws are then discussed in secret meetings of the Committee of Permanent Representatives and rubber-stamped by the Council of Ministers. National parliaments of European countries have no say in the matter.
This is another step closer to a One-World government -- one-world unelected rulers, one-world police-force, one-world monetary system -- a global socialist-communist dictatorship.
Also, on August 10, 1944, I was born into this dimension on a U.S. Army Air Force in Blytheville, Arkansas.
My parents were from Stevens Point, Wisconsin, and my father had been conscripted into the Armed Forces during World War II. He had become an officer and a pilot instructor. After the war, we moved back to Stevens Point and various locations thereafter.
Thus, I became 70 years-old on August 10, 2014, during a super moon event.
Obviously, it means greatness awaits me -- either that, or it means I'm really getting old.

Quote for the Day -- “In 1492, the natives discovered they were indians, discovered they lived in America, discovered they were naked, discovered that the Sin existed, discovered they owed allegiance to a King and Kingdom from another world and a God from another sky, and that this God had invented the guilty and the dress, and had sent to be burnt alive who worships the Sun the Moon the Earth and the Rain that wets it.” Eduardo Galeano
