Stranger Than Fiction: 13 Year Old Struck By Lightning On Friday 13th, Fidel Castro’s [Cosmic]Trip, Dwight Eisenhower & Hitler’s DNA

There are several news stories that were beyond interesting:

According to London AFP:

“Friday the 13th proved suitably unlucky for one 13 year-old boy who was struck by lightning before being taken to hospital — at 13:13 on the dreaded date. The boy, who has not been named, was treated for a minor burn after being hit along with two others at an air show in Suffolk, a spokeswoman said.

Staff at the St Johns Ambulance service said there had been heavy rain all day before they witnessed a big flash of lightning and a loud clap of thunder over the sea off the Suffolk coast.”We got a call that someone had been struck by lightning so we immediately sent our paramedics to the scene, followed by an ambulance,” said Rex Clarke, head of the team of St John Ambulance volunteers at the event.

“Lightning strikes can cause cardiac arrest, but when our volunteers arrived the boy was conscious and breathing.”

Clarke added that two other people were treated for injuries from lightning burns in the space of twenty minutes, and that all three people were holding umbrellas at the time which “acts as a conductor for electricity.”Jason Gillingham, a County Ambulance Officer and on scene at the show, said: “This was a minor burn to the boy’s shoulder, but he was taken to hospital and is recovering well.”  Notice the appearance of 13 four times in this story.

The next news item of interest deals with the person of Fidel Castro. Fidel Castro appeared in the National Assembly for the first time in 4 years on August 7, 2010 following his emergency intestinal surgery. His birthday was on Friday, August 13, 2010. The 13-year-old being struck by lightning at 13:13 was not the only unusual phenomena to occur on the Cuban leader’s birthday. On Friday, August 13 there was also the sighting of the Perseids Showers:

“As Perseus rises and the night deepens, meteor rates will increase. For sheer numbers, the best time to look is during the darkest hours before dawn on Friday morning, Aug. 13th, when most observers will see dozens of Perseids per hour.”  There was also on August 13, 2010 the planetary conjunction of “thin crescent Moon close to Venus, Mars and Saturn, with Mercury below.”

Castro also made news during the month of August 2010 when he spoke glowingly about a book on the secret society known as the Bilderberg Group. According to the Associated Press on August 18, 2010:

“HAVANA – Fidel Castro is showcasing a theory long popular both among the far left and far right: that the shadowy Bilderberg Group has become a kind of global government, controlling not only international politics and economics, but even culture.

The 84-year-old former Cuban president published an article Wednesday that used three of the only eight pages in the Communist Party newspaper Granma to quote — largely verbatim — from a 2006 book by Lithuanian-born writer Daniel Estulin.”

The news article goes on to state:

“The excerpt published by Castro suggested that the esoteric Frankfurt School of socialist academics worked with members of the Rockefeller family in the 1950s to pave the way for rock music to “control the masses” by diverting attention from civil rights and social injustice.”

There were several stories related to Dwight Eisenhower

Anthony France of the Sun (UK) wrote on August 23, 2010:

“Geoff Bacon, 90, died after a thug punched him to the ground as he entered his flat – to rob him of £40 and a bus pass. John Eisenhower told The Sun: “It’s a terrible way for someone who has given such great service, and served with my father in the war, to die. “It just sounds so senseless. It’s heartbreaking. My sympathies are with his family.” Geoff had driven the then Supreme Allied Commander – who went on to become President “Ike” – on undercover missions in France during World War II. The leader’s son spoke out as it emerged a 32-year-old man was arrested on Friday on suspicion of Geoff’s murder. He was released on police bail until September. John, 88, of Trappe, Maryland, also said The Sun “has to be applauded” for offering half a £40,000 reward to help catch the killer. Geoff died 11 weeks after the April attack at his flat in Camberwell, South London.

 A police source said yesterday: “We still need people to come forward if they know anything about this crime.”

Other stories involving Dwight Eisenhower include:

  • A document written by a federal judge 216 years ago has turned up in an unlikely place: in President Dwight Eisenhower’s archives in Kansas. The 1794 document, signed by Judge Richard Peters, was found at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in July. The document was found among letters sent to Eisenhower in 1955.

On August 25,1958 , President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a measure providing pensions for former U.S. presidents and their widows.

From the Daily Mail also an U.K. publication:

“The final moments of Nazi Heinrich Himmler can be revealed 65 years after his suicide following the discovery of an old soldier’s war diaries. Corporal Harry Oughton Jones wrote an account of his top-secret encounter with the head of Hitler’s SS police force while he was stationed at a prison camp at the end of the war. According to his personal recollections, Hitler’s number two bit on a cyanide capsule and dropped down dead.

And while Himmler’s final words are widely believed to have been: ‘I am Heinrich Himmler’, according to the diaries he laughed in the face of a young officer before swallowing the pill.

Unbeknown to the British, Himmler was among the German soldiers captured after the Nazi surrender – disguised in a sergeant’s uniform with a patch over one eye. But his ruse was blown by his own shocked comrades who immediately informed their British captors of Himmler’s presence.

Corporal Jones – then 27 – and another officer were tasked with challenging Himmler before he took his life.

According to the diary he scoffed: ‘You my boy are just a young captain and to take me I want to see your colonel in charge.’ His account continued: ‘As we made to get him he just put his hand to his mouth and before we got to him he dropped dead on the bed.’ Two days later and under the cover of darkness, Corporal Jones helped bury Himmler in an unmarked grave on Luneburg Heath, in northern Germany.

The final news items that will be briefly examined deal with Adolf Hitler. Huffington Post  reported:

“SAN MARINO, Calif. — During the final days of World War II, as American soldiers were returning from Germany with swastika-inscribed helmets, flags and other Nazi memorabilia, Gen. George Patton was packing up his own set of souvenirs.

The legendary field commander took four pages of documents signed by Adolf Hitler that laid the legal framework for killing 6 million Jews – the so-called Nuremberg Laws.

On Wednesday, The Huntington Library, a sprawling complex of libraries, museums and botanical gardens in this leafy Los Angeles suburb, plans to hand over the documents to the government-run National Archives, thus concluding a 65-year-old odyssey.

The papers, which among other things rescinded the citizenship of German Jews and forbid them to marry non-Jews, are the only original pieces of Nuremberg trial evidence missing from the collection, said National Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper.

Holocaust scholars have described them as priceless, saying they provide an outline of the beginnings of a movement that led to the most atrocious act of genocide in history.

It hasn’t been lost on officials at The Huntington that Patton, a notorious war trophy collector, carried the papers out of Germany illegally.

“We were aware of the fact that General Patton, who had received the documents from his staff as a gift and deposited them at The Huntington, had not paid attention in his souvenir hunting to the orders of his commander in chief,” library President Steve S. Koblik said.

The papers should have gone to the U.S. government, which was collecting evidence to use in the Nazi war crimes trials that took place in Nuremberg shortly after the war.”

The story about Hitler that has generated the most interest is the report that Hitler has “African” and “Jewish Roots”. Various media outlets reported:

“Saliva samples taken from 39 relatives of the Nazi leader show he may have had biological links to the “subhuman” races that he tried to exterminate during the Holocaust.

Jean-Paul Mulders, a Belgian journalist, and Marc Vermeeren, a historian, tracked down the Fuhrer’s relatives, including an Austrian farmer who was his cousin, earlier this year.

A chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1 which showed up in their samples is rare in Western Europe and is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.

“One can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised,” Mr Mulders wrote in the Belgian magazine, Knack.

Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of Ashkenazi and 8.6 per cent to 30 per cent of Sephardic Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.

Knack, which published the findings, says the DNA was tested under stringent laboratory conditions.

“This is a surprising result,” said Ronny Decorte, a genetic specialist at the Catholic University of Leuven.

“The affair is fascinating if one compares it with the conception of the world of the Nazis, in which race and blood was central.

“Hitler’s concern over his descent was not unjustified. He was apparently not “pure” or ‘Ayran’.”

It is not the first time that historians have suggested Hitler had Jewish ancestry.

His father, Alois, is thought to have been the illegitimate offspring of a maid called Maria Schickelgruber and a 19-year-old Jewish man called Frankenberger.”

This is not the first time the number 39 has appeared with a story about Hitler:

  • Hitler’s father Alois had always used the last name of his mother, Schicklgruber, and thus was always called Alois Schicklgruber. He made no attempt to hide the fact he was illegitimate since it was common in rural Austria. But after his success in the civil service, his proud uncle from the small farm convinced him to change his last name to match his own, Hiedler, and continue the family name. However, when it came time to write the name down in the record book it was spelled as Hitler. And so in 1876 at age 39, Alois Schicklgruber became Alois Hitler.
  • On November 1, 2007 at the  National Archives press conference, Allen Weinstein, Archivist of the United States, Michael Kurtz, Assistant Archivist for Records Services and Robert M. Edsel, author of Rescuing Da Vinci and President of the Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art, announced the discovery of two original leather bound photograph albums documenting art that was looted by the Nazis during World War II, both of which Mr. Edsel will donate to the National Archives under separate terms. These albums were created by the staff of the Third Reich’s Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR). The National Archives has custody of the 39 original ERR photograph albums that were discovered at Neuschwanstein, where the Germans, in April 1945, had placed them for safekeeping. In late 1945, this set of 39 albums was used as evidence at the Nuremberg trials to document the massive Nazi art looting operations.

Key elements in the stories referenced above are: Numbers 3, 5, 6, 9, 11, 13 , 39, 88 as well as WWII.

Decades before the recent news on the genetic make-up of Hitler, Afro-Jamaican historian J.A. Rogers who was married to a German woman, documented in his  work “Nature Knows  No Color Line”, the Black origins of the Aryan race. “J.A. Rogers’ search for truth led him to examine the African blood lines of Europeans and Americans. His signal work, “Nature Knows No Color-Line” and the three-volume set, “Sex and Race” destroyed the myth of Aryan race purity.” 

In the article “J. A. Rogers’ Hitler and the Negro by Amin Sharif writes:

“The reader will find above a small article by J. A. Rogers entitled “Hitler and the Negro.” J. A. Roger is, of course, known to every serious student of African and African-American history through his many voluminous works such as From Superman to Man and One Hundred Amazing Facts About the Negro. Born in Jamaica on September 6, 1883, Rogers saw two World Wars, attended the coronation of Haile Selassie, and traveled extensively throughout the world as a journalist before he died in New York City of March 26, 1965.

“In this article, as in all of his works, Rogers is quick to point out the contradictory nature of white racism as embodied in the philosophy of Adolph Hitler. One of the most puzzling aspects of racism is that it holds to false concepts against every tide of reason. Rogers maintains that Hitler’s argument that Negroes “are half-apes” cannot be collaborated by any evidence found in Germany or elsewhere. On the contrary, there is evidence right beneath Hitler’s nose that Negroes (Africans) made important contributions to Germany history and culture (Emphasis Mine).

Sometimes the “Truth” is stranger than fiction. It is not a coincidence it is “Cosmic”.
