Historians Claim They Have Proof That A Chalice On Display In A Spanish Museum Is The Holy Grail

Jewel-Encrusted Goblet Found Gathering Dust In Tiny Spanish Museum ‘Touched The Lips Of Jesus And Is In Fact The Holy Grail’ Say Two Historians With Evidence To Prove It – Daily Mail

It is a mystery dating back millennia.

But apparently, the long-lost Holy Grail has finally been found – on display in a Spanish museum.

The onyx chalice has been sat in the Basilica of San Isidoro in Leon, north Spain, for 1000 years – touted to visitors as a goblet belonging to 11th century Queen Urraca.
.

.
But in fact, there is ‘no doubt’ it contains the cup which touched the lips of Jesus Christ, two historians claim.

In an explosive book charting three years of ‘scientific research’, Margarita Torres and Jose Ortiza del Rio reveal there is conclusive evidence from scrolls in Egypt that confirm their theory.

The onyx vessel made between 200 BC and 100 AD, they claim, is trapped inside a bejewelled medieval chalice.

.

.
According to two medieval documents written in Arabic, it was stolen from Jerusalem by Muslims, who gave it to the Christian community in Egypt.

Centuries later, in around 1050 AD, it was sent as a gift to King Fernando I of Castile to thank him for sending aid during a famine, they say.

By that point, it had been concealed with opulent decorations.

.

.
Gold inside, with patterns etched around the edges, the revered ornament is covered with pearls, emeralds, amethysts and sapphires, which the Egyptian kings will have designed to honour the well-liked Fernando.

It was housed and used in the Basilica of San Isidoro, where it remained in storage until it was put on display in the museum which opened in the 1950s.

.

.
Ms Torres, a history professor at the University of Leon, said: ‘The only chalice that could be considered the chalice of Christ is one which went via Cairo to León, and this chalice did so.

‘This is a very important discovery because it helps solve a big puzzle.

‘We believe this could be start of a wonderful stage of research.’

More Proof That Leftists Are Insane… As If We Needed More Proof

Mandatory Safety Helmets For Pedestrians – Moonbattery

Anyone who thinks forcing kids to wear helmets to play soccer is the last word in authoritarian absurdity is directed to Moscow on the Colorado, where a sample of the public overwhelmingly approved of mandatory safety helmets for pedestrians:

People at the University of Texas at Austin agreed to sign a petition that would compel the City of Austin to enforce a law requiring pedestrians to wear safety helmets.

The tongue-in-cheek operation by Alex Jones’ Infowars.com staff was called C.H.U.M.P.S. (Compelled Helmet Use for the Misfortunate Public). Participants were told the law would also require special walking lanes so people could walk while texting and freely run into things. No one would get hurt because everyone is wearing helmets.

Sadly, most people didn’t realize it was a joke. They were even told the plan would be used to lower insurance prices under Obamacare.

“We talked to 20 people and 14 of them signed the petition to pass a law to make the general population wear helmets when you walk down the street,” said talk show host Alex Jones said in a video report.

Hats off to Jones. Despite the loose screws that can sometimes be heard rattling around in his skull, this prank was worthy of Mark Dice.

The lesson to take away:

Infowars.com writer Paul Joseph Watson noted that the helmet petition shows “the majority of the general public will accept almost any nanny state measure no matter how ludicrous.”

This has been repeatedly confirmed by New Yorkers’ passive submission beneath the heel of Nanny Bloomberg.

Yet Another Reason Why States Need To Begin Ignoring The Federal Government

Supreme Court: Arizona Law Requiring Citizenship Proof For Voters Is Illegal – Fox News

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that states cannot on their own require would-be voters to prove they are U.S. citizens before using a federal registration system designed to make signing up easier.

.

The justices voted 7-2 to throw out Arizona’s voter-approved requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a registration form produced under the federal “Motor Voter” voter registration law.

Federal law “precludes Arizona from requiring a federal form applicant to submit information beyond that required by the form itself,” Justice Antonia Scalia wrote for the court’s majority.

The court was considering the legality of Arizona’s requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a registration form produced under the federal “motor voter” registration law. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, which doesn’t require such documentation, trumps Arizona’s Proposition 200 passed in 2004.

Arizona appealed that decision to the Supreme Court.

“Today’s decision sends a strong message that states cannot block their citizens from registering to vote by superimposing burdensome paperwork requirements on top of federal law,” said Nina Perales, vice president of litigation for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and lead counsel for the voters who challenged Proposition 200.

“The Supreme Court has affirmed that all U.S. citizens have the right to register to vote using the national postcard, regardless of the state in which they live,” she said.

The case focuses on Arizona, which has tangled frequently with the federal government over immigration issues involving the Mexican border. But it has broader implications because four other states — Alabama, Georgia, Kansas and Tennessee — have similar requirements, and 12 other states are contemplating such legislation.

Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented from the court’s ruling.

The Constitution “authorizes states to determine the qualifications of voters in federal elections, which necessarily includes the related power to determine whether those qualifications are satisfied,” Thomas said in his dissent.

Opponents of Arizona’s law see it as an attack on vulnerable voter groups such as minorities, immigrants and the elderly. They say they’ve counted more than 31,000 potentially legal voters in Arizona who easily could have registered before Proposition 200 but were blocked initially by the law in the 20 months after it passed in 2004. They say about 20 percent of those thwarted were Latino.

Barbara Arnwine, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, called the decision a victory. “The court has reaffirmed the essential American right to register to vote for federal election without the burdens of state voter suppression measures,” she said.

But Arizona officials say they should be able to pass laws to stop illegal immigrants and other noncitizens from getting on their voting rolls. The Arizona voting law was part of a package that also denied some government benefits to illegal immigrants and required Arizonans to show identification before voting.

The federal “motor voter” law, enacted in 1993 to expand voter registration, requires states to offer voter registration when a resident applies for a driver’s license or certain benefits. Another provision of that law — the one at issue before the court — requires states to allow would-be voters to fill out mail-in registration cards and swear they are citizens under penalty of perjury, but it doesn’t require them to show proof. Under Proposition 200, Arizona officials require an Arizona driver’s license issued after 1996, a U.S. birth certificate, a passport or other similar document, or the state will reject the federal registration application form.

While the court was clear in stating that states cannot add additional identification requirements to the federal forms on their own, it was also clear that the same actions can be taken by state governments if they get the approval of the federal government and the federal courts.

Arizona can ask the federal government to include the extra documents as a state-specific requirement, Scalia said, and take any decision made by the government on that request back to court. Other states have already done so, Scalia said.

The Election Assistance Commission “recently approved a state-specific instruction for Louisiana requiring applicants who lack a Louisiana driver’s license, ID card or Social Security number to attach additional documentation to the completed federal form,” Scalia said.

The case is 12-71, Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc.

Proof: Obama Refused To Call Benghazi ‘Terror,’ CBS Covered Up (Video)

Proof: Obama Refused To Call Benghazi ‘Terror,’ CBS Covered Up – Big Journalism

……..

In an astonishing display of media malpractice, CBS News quietly released proof–two days before the election, far too late to reach the media and the public–that President Barack Obama lied to the public about the Benghazi attack, as well as about his later claim to have called the attack “terrorism” from the beginning.

CBS unveiled additional footage from its 60 Minutes interview with President Obama, conducted on Sep. 12 immediately after Obama had made his statement about the attacks in the Rose Garden, in which Obama quite clearly refuses to call the Benghazi an act of terror when asked a direct question by reporter Steve Kroft:

.

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

CBS News held onto this footage for more than six weeks, failing to release it even when questions were raised during the Second Presidential Debate as to whether Obama had, in fact, referred to the Benghazi attack as an act of terror before blaming it falsely on demonstrations against an anti-Islamic video. The moderator, CNN’s Candy Crowley, intervened on Obama’s behalf, falsely declaring he had indeed called the attack an act of terror in his Rose Garden statement, and creating the impression that Romney was wrong.

That exchange turned what would have been an outright win for Romney in the debate into a narrow win or possibly a loss–and it discouraged him from bringing up the issue again in the next debate or on the campaign trail. CBS News could have set the record straight, but held onto this footage, releasing it just before the election – perhaps to avoid the later charge of having suppressed it altogether.

Fox News’ Bret Baier, who has been following the timeline of events closely, noted in his analysis this morning:

These are two crucial answers in the big picture. Right after getting out of the Rose Garden, where, according to the second debate and other accounts he definitively called the attack terrorism, Obama is asked point blank about not calling it terrorism. He blinks and does not push back.

Understand that this interview is just hours after he gets out of the Rose Garden.

How after this exchange and the CIA explanation of what was being put up the chain in the intel channels does the Ambassador to the United Nations go on the Sunday shows and say what she says about a spontaneous demonstration sparked by that anti-Islam video? And how does the president deliver a speech to the United Nations 13 days later where he references that anti-Islam video six times when referring to the attack in Benghazi?

There are many questions, and here are a few more.

Why did CBS release a clip that appeared to back up Obama’s claim in the second debate on Oct. 19, a few days before the foreign policy debate, and not release the rest of that interview at the beginning?

Why on the Sunday before the election, almost six weeks after the attack, at 6 p.m. does an obscure online timeline posted on CBS.com contain the additional “60 Minutes” interview material from Sept. 12?

Why wasn’t it news after the president said what he said in the second debate, knowing what they had in that “60 Minutes” tape – why didn’t they use it then? And why is it taking Fox News to spur other media organizations to take the Benghazi story seriously?

Whatever your politics, there are a lot of loose ends here, a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of strange political maneuvers that don’t add up.

Actually, the conclusion to be drawn is quite simple: CBS News, in an effort to assist President Obama’s re-election campaign, corruptly concealed information about two critical issues–namely, a terror attack and the president’s dishonesty about it. When the players in the Libya scandal face investigation, so, too, should CBS News and those in the mainstream media who have wantonly assisted the administration’s shameless lies.

Video Proof Of Obama’s Embassy Attack Lies… (Warning: Graphic Content)

Video Proof Of Obama’s Embassy Attack Lies… (Warning: Graphic Content) – Ulsterman Report

For days now the Obama administration and supporters in the mainstream media have claimed the attacks on American embassies in the Middle East were not attacks on America – or the policies of the Obama government. These reports have also attempted to suggest Libyans, once they found Ambassador Christopher Stevens, attempted to save him by transporting the ambassador to a nearby hospital.

Video evidence now paints a very different and far more disturbing picture. The body of a man who appears to be the ambassador is shown being dragged upon the ground as those gathered around cheer.

If Barack Obama so willingly lies about details of a U.S. ambassador’s death, what else is he lying about? How deeply into the administration does this now growing scandal go? And will the American people allow the president to get away with this deception?

A final note – readers should be reminded that after being made aware of the death of Ambassador Stevens, Barack Obama flew off to Las Vegas for yet another political fundraiser. Remind yourself of that fact – a fact even more disturbing than the footage in this video.

Caught On Tape: Proof The NYC Blizzard Response Was Sabotaged?

Caught On Tape: Proof The NYC Blizzard Response Was Sabotaged? – The Blaze

Criminal investigations have been launched to find out why workers from the New York City Sanitation Department were reportedly hanging out at Dunkin Donuts for 11 straight hours and some drinking beer for six or seven hours instead of working to clear the city‘s streets of snow that had fallen in last week’s massive snowstorm.

Though the Department of Sanitation has denied any organized effort to slow down the city’s snow clean-up efforts, new video that‘s surfaced seems to prove there were dirty tricks involved in workers’ efforts to clean the streets last week. The video obtained by a local CBS affiliate are now being closely examined by prosecutors as they seem to show two sanitation trucks driving down snow-covered streets in Queens with their plows raised:

……., posted with vodpod

In addition, CBS2 reports that a number of Department of Transportation workers were told to wait six to eight hours for orders from the Sanitation Department before deploying to plow secondary roads. This action left streets in the city’s outer boroughs impassable for days.

“After looking at what happened there’s going to be hell to pay for the people who caused this and everyone’s going to be held accountable,” says NYC Councilman Daniel Halloran.

Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hern says the city is working to get to the bottom of what happened and is urging city residents to contact the agency if they have any evidence of deliberate wrongdoing. All information will be kept strictly confidential, she says.
