Daily 2 Cents: My Guardian Angel -- Attack by 'High Elf' Battling Evil -- 'Angel of Mons'...Possibly UFO

My Guardian Angel

My dad recently told me this story and I was just amazed. I thought you guys would like to hear it.

When I was young, about three or so, I was hospitalized and near death. I had a fever that just would not break and was passed out for most of the hospitalization. My dad, who has always been religious, wanted the hospital's priest to come say a prayer for me.

So, the priest comes to pray for me but, something's not right about the guy. He never gives his name and has no bible. He says the entire prayer in Latin and blesses me.

Now, my parents aren't married yet and since the priest is there, they ask why they haven't been able to have another child yet. They had been trying for about a year with no luck. The priest tells them that they won't have another child until they're married.

The priest leaves after that and an hour later my fever breaks.

The next day the hospital's priest comes to the room to say a prayer for me. My dad is confused and tells the man that someone had already come the day before, to which the man replies that no priests were on duty the day before. He checked with all of the hospital staff and their visitation book and everything, nothing turned up. No priest was in the previous day.

He searched for years to find this priest that prayed for me and he never found a single trace of him anywhere.

A month after my mom and dad got married, my mom got pregnant with my brother.

So, we'll never know who the mysterious man was but, I like to think he's my guardian angel. To this day my dad still has found no record of him, not even someone who looks like him. Someone was looking out for me that day though. I just wish I knew who. - Reddit.com

“Martyrs Breeding Nation of Iran” Demands Flogging for Actress Kissing Strange Man on Cheek

In Iran, women are supposed to dedicate themselves exclusively to breeding martyrs. Not kissing strange infidels on the cheek. That’s cheeky behavior at odds with Hezbollah’s pride in breeding human cannon fodder which must be punished with lashes.

The group, which is called Hizbullah, has links to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, demanded the flogging of Iranian actress Leila Hatami for her on-the-cheek kiss with the president of the Cannes Film Festival during the opening ceremony.

It filed a complaint with Iran’s judiciary for the prosecution of the actress who stars in the Oscar-winning, “A Separation.”

“We, the undersigned, who are a group of student Muslim brothers and sisters, ask the cultural and media branch of the judiciary to prosecute Leyla Hatami for her sinful act of kissing a strange man in public, which according to article 638 of Islamic Criminal Justice carries a prison sentence.”

“Furthermore, the action of this film star has hurt the religious sentiments of the proud and martyrs breeding nation of Iran and as such we also demand the punishment of flogging for her as stipulated in the law.”

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard effectively runs Iran. Hezbollah in Iran was the traditional arm of Iranian clerics, gathered from criminals who were the lowest element of society, and were used to beat and kill the enemies of Islam.

Every time you see an appeaser cite how many Iranian women work in film, remember that these are the conditions under which they work. Iran is a totalitarian society run by theocrats and fascists. It has plenty of talented women. It also has vicious repression.

Iranians are rather tired of breeding martyrs, but the rulers of Iran aren’t. Their “moderate” president is a puppet of its true rulers. - Front Page Mag


“Angel” which saved British troops in WW1 “may have been UFO”

A famous supernatural incident during World War I may have had a rather more otherworldly explanation.

According to the story, heavily outnumbered British soldiers managed to push back the German forces at the Battle of Mons thanks to supernatural intervention in the form of angelic warriors who mysteriously appeared during the battle and fought alongside the troops.

The miraculous tale would go on to spur both controversy and intrigue for years to come. Several books were published with conflicting views of the event which lead to rumors and conspiracy theories. One particularly prominent idea was that the whole thing had been fabricated as part of a military morale boosting exercise designed to improve recruitment numbers.

Fast forward to the 21st century and now the Angel of Mons has been brought once again in to the limelight thanks to a new set of claims suggesting that what the soldiers witnessed was in fact the otherworldly occupants of a UFO.

"The UFO enigma was unknown during the First World War conflict; the troops would relate to an event such as this in the only way they could, by thinking that they had a sign from God," said author Kevin Goodman.

The testimony of a Lance-Corporal who was a first-hand witness to the event is quite compelling:

"I could see quite plainly in mid-air a strange light which seemed to be quite distinctly outlined and was not a reflection of the moon, nor were there any clouds in the neighbourhood. The light became brighter and I could see quite distinctly three shapes, one in the centre having what looked like outspread wings, the other two were not so large, but were quite plainly distinct from the centre one. They appeared to have a long loose-hanging garment of a golden cloak."

Woman's car attacked by self-identified 'high elf' battling evil

The last thing the woman from Northeast Portland probably expected when she got up Tuesday morning was that she would be attacked by a sword-wielding elf.

But that's what happened around 7 a.m. as she drove her red BMW by the intersection of Southeast 7th and Morrison.

A man dressed in chain-mail with a helmet, shield and carrying a sword and staff ran into traffic and started attacking her car.

She called 911, reporting that "a pirate" was attacking her car.

When police got there, they detained Konrad Bass of Glendale, Oregon.

Bass told officers that he wasn't a pirate but a "high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth."

Morgoth is a character created by JRR Tolkien in a prequel to the Lord of the Rings stories. In the stories, he is the character from which all evil grew.

Bass, who was cited for criminal mischief and transported to Providence Hospital, also told officers he had taken LSD.

The woman's car had several puncture marks.

NOTE: Portland, OR is certainly a weird place. But, then again, us 'Grimm' fans already know that. Lon
