NewGrange Hall Asatru Hof
Allsherjargothi Stephen McNallen of the Asatru Folk Assembly addresses the Folk prior to the dedication ceremony at NewGrange Hall Asatru Hof.Allsherjargothi Stephen McNallen of the Asatru Folk Assembly addresses the Folk prior to the dedication ceremony at NewGrange Hall Asatru Hof.
This talk was given by Stephen McNallen at NewGrange Hall in 2015. I don't want anyone to absolutely hold me to the idea that NewGrange Hall is literally the first "community hof," as there may have been numerous meeting places of one type or another over the years. Of course, there have also been many smaller hofs, and I don't want to minimize that either; but apparently this is the first officially known and exclusive location. This is important---even if you're not specifically an Asutrar, or don't live close to it---as it sets an example for the folk to follow. The great Leif Erikson was both a Heathen and brief colonizer of North America a millennium ago. I think if Erikson is looking down upon NewGrange Hall, that he would be proud of what the AFA has accomplished.
I think the time has come for individuals to step up and be the satellite for what you believe... in the county you live in. One doesn't need any special permission to be an organizer where they live, and I would say that a county is just the right size region for this. It doesn't have to be literally official, and you need not a title, as you may merely be assisting the greater whole. I can think of many beautiful locations, in urban areas and not far off the beaten path, which could serve as spiritual gathering places for small groups. Sometimes when I'm at one of those special places, I experience a brief feeling of bewilderment that I'm the only person there enjoying its bliss. Think outside the box; there are many untapped resources around us. No human endeavor is real until someone uses their energy to breathe life into it.

I'm planning on going to high ground to view the eclipse, although I don't plan on literally looking at it.... at least until it is blacked out. It's dangerous to look directly at a bright sun at anytime. This should be special. Be sure to find out the time, as the west coast will experience it in the morning hours... so don't allow it to sneak up on you. However, unfortunately, it will be during standard work week hours.
Lastly, the weather. Check for the weather forecast. Perhaps you may need to take a drive for better weather. It would probably be a good idea to just make a checklist: date, time, weather, location, camera, etc. In northern California we will not get total darkness, but it will be the next level down apparently (75%). Also, look up your local eclipse information; you may or may not want to be a the most popular viewing locations.
The eclipse will begin at 9:05 AM for us, and peak at 10:22 AM, so it will not be like a five minute affair. It should be a good half hour long... wherever you are..

Total Solar Eclipse 2017 When, Where and How to See It August 21, 2017
Great American Total Solar Eclipse will darken skies all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, along a stretch of land about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide. People who descend upon this "path of totality" for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.

How Long Will the 2017 Solar Eclipse Last:
What You'll See:
Nwo Report: http://www.nworeport.me
A solar eclipse is coming to America. Here’s what you’ll see where you live.
By Casey Miller, Ryan Mark, and Brian Resnick - vox.com - Jul 25, 2017
On Monday August 21, a solar eclipse will cut across the entire United States. And wherever you are, you will be able to see it. Even though the “totality” — the area where the sun is completely blocked out by the moon — is only 70 miles wide, the whole country (even Alaska and Hawaii) will experience a partial eclipse.
This is what you’ll see, and the time you’ll see it, in your zip code.
We recommend punching in a few different ones to see how the eclipse experience will vary across the country. Salem, Oregon (97301), is going to see a total eclipse. Downtown Los Angeles (90012) will see 62 percent of the sun blocked at the peak. In Lake Charles, Louisiana (70601), it’ll be 71 percent.
'Tis the last rose of Summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded gone.

L.U.C.I.F.E.R. Device and Chapel of the Holy Cross (Legend of the Verde Valley) Documentary
NOTE: This is a chapter out of the series and book "Legends of the Verde Valley" which you can get by licking on the link below.
This short documentary makes a few connects between the Chapel of the Holy Cross, The L.U.C.F.E.R. Device, The Vatican, Premier Vortex location, and the possibility the church was built upon sacred ground giving rise to the question why does the church point a cross to the sky? What is it trying to signal? Questions of interest for further works in progress in this series.
In 1984, the University of Arizona and the Vatican selected Mount Graham as a site for a complex of telescopes. The fact that this is a sacred place for the Apache was not taken into consideration which would ultimately be the start of "The Long, Bitter Battle over Mount Graham."
For many Native American nations there are certain geographic places which have special spiritual meanings. These sacred places are often portals to the spirit worlds. For the Apache in Arizona, one of these sacred places is Mount Graham which is said to be one of the most holy places in the world because of the gateways and portals found there.
“L.U.C.I.F.E.R., which stands for “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research,” is a chilled instrument attached to a telescope. And yes, it’s named for the Devil, whose name itself means “morning star” [and which] happens to be right next to the Vatican Observatory on Mt. Graham in Tucson.” — Rebecca Boyle, Popular Science Magazine
Why would the Vatican name one of their projects "Lucifer?" If someone is Luciferian, fine! Just say I am Luciferian. Just as with many Christians... to the global elite, everythng is "the Devil." The Devil, Satan, Lucifer, Pan, Kali, Cernunnos, Apollo, any stag or horned fertility god, etc. Lucifer is not Satan, but there can be a conflated meaning.

Now owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Filoli is open to the public. The site is both a California Historical Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Famous Celebrity Homes - The Dynasty House "Filoli" VIDEO
I'm planning to visit the Filoli house in the next few weeks. For me it's not really the size or luxury of the house, but the space, tranquility, and especially the nearby wilderness of the Santa Cruz Mountains. I was on a trail just last night at about 10:30, dark sky, crescent moon, stars, mountain, trees and thick brush, and the howls of coyotes. Now combine that with a mansion, what could be more desirable than that? If I had a house on the edge of the wilderness, I would be happy even if I didn't have any money to speak of.

Teutonic Order Anthem
The Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem (official names: Latin: Ordo domus Sanctæ Mariæ Theutonicorum Hierosolymitanorum, German: Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus der Heiligen Maria in Jerusalem), commonly the Teutonic Order (Deutscher Orden, Deutschherrenorden or Deutschritterorden), is a Catholic religious order founded as a military order c. 1190 in Acre, Kingdom of Jerusalem. Purely religious since 1929, it still confers limited honorary knighthoods.
The order was formed to aid Christians on their pilgrimages to the Holy Land and to establish hospitals. Its members have commonly been known as the Teutonic Knights, having a small voluntary and mercenary military membership, serving as a crusading military order for protection of Christians in the Holy Land and the Baltics during the Middle Ages.
If a violent foreign enemy invaded Germany,
and rioted, looted, raped, robbed, murdered, and maimed....
I wonder what the Teutonic Knights would have done?
My top 3 "move scapegoats"
1) Lynette from 'An Officer and a Gentleman'
She may have been a gold digger of sorts, but not any more so than than Paula. Talk about "projecting!" If she was guilty of anything, it certainly wasn't due to Sid's suicide! Was it her fault that he quit? NO. Was it her fault that he committed suicide? NO. Zack and Lynette didn't have a speck of evidence that she did anything wrong. In movie-fact, she did not. They had an argument because he quit, period. What would self-righteous Paula have don't differently if in the same situation? What is worse is that it's just left upon her shoulder to carry this non-existent guilt. Extremely cruel. When Paula said "God help you"... grrr
2) Christine from 'Family Business'
Jesse was not only a crook, but a proud crook who openly admired Gypsy thieves for their honesty of a clear conscience. How the hell could he call Christine a "parasite!?" Her crime was victimless to boot! Jesse's crime could have coast people's lives!! Jeopardizing people's lives so he can steal money for himself. Isn't that infinitely more parasitical? At the least, his "projection" on Christine was insanely hypocritical.
3) Randy from 'The Wrestler'
After just beginning the process of patching things up, his estranged daughter Stephanie "projected" all of her legitimate anger toward her father--literally wrote him off permanently!--all because he made one unintentional mistake. She could have said "don't call me for awhile," and put the ball back in his court... or to punish him. It was extremely cruel, but she did have old baggage as sort've an excuse.
'Box of Moonlight'
The late Lisa Blount, who played "Lynette," was in a very "different" sort've movie in 1996 entitled 'Box of Moonlight'. John Turturro plays the part of a construction foreman, something of a tough guy, who meets Sam Rockwell's offbeat and vulnerable character while driving out in the countryside. It's so different; it could almost take place today... or in 1950! It's like a lot of movies in that it's about a regular person having an experience, an adventure.... only it doesn't feel fake at all. The characters are real. Pretty good movie... sometimes harsh.. in other ways innocent.
At one point they're in the woods near a body of water, and they meet two sisters... one played by Lisa Blount. John Turturro's character was married, and Sam Rockwell's homeless character wasn't in any position to meet any women. They all just went swimming, without any social or sexual tension; like when you were a kid and could make a few friends like in an hour. The two sisters were like simple country girls so to speak. It's been so long since I saw it; I've forgotten the particulars, but it's a good film. Sam Rockwell is apparently from Daly City, not far from me. Lisa Blount passed away in 2010.

I don't agree with much of what his guy says anymore, but he's correct on this point. It's such a no-brainer.... obviously this private corporation needs more and more prisoners for its corporate "growth!" This corporation has changed its name to the more benevolent sounding and stock market catchy "CoreCivic." Their symbol looks very "Soviet."
'Top 5 Most Sinister Corporate Logos'
By Vigilant - In Pursuit of Happiness - June 16, 2009
Big corporations pay millions in public relations to make customers associate their brand with a warm and fuzzy feeling. It is imperative that the soulless and inherently greedy nature of the corporation be hidden behind a family-friendly facade. But some companies just don’t give a hoot. They hate you, your family and especially your cat and they don’t care if you know it. They even display their evilness right on their logo. Here is my top 5 of most sinister logos.

Flowing Hair Half Dimes (1794-1795)
I have held onto coins which I've come across over the years. I keep ones which I think have some interesting feature, such as a very rustic 1839 penny, an old German coin with a Germanic eagle, Roman coins, Indian heads, or coins with female heads that remind me of perhaps Athena or Freya. This one caught my eye recently. I like that "Lady Liberty" is presented as not really beautiful, but has a certain grand-quality to her. The eagle is really an Egyptian Phoenix due to the Masonic influence.
Another is a 1791 Scottish St. Andrews half-penny, in which the "X"--to me--could symbolize the ancient symbol of "Man." Sometimes something can just be what you want it to be. Officially he is St. Andrews, but to you it could symbolize someone else perhaps.

New Horizons Flyover of Pluto
Using actual New Horizons data and digital elevation models of Pluto and its largest moon Charon, mission scientists have created flyover movies that offer spectacular new perspectives of the many unusual features that were discovered and which have reshaped our views of the Pluto system – from a vantage point even closer than the spacecraft itself.
This dramatic Pluto flyover begins over the highlands to the southwest of the great expanse of nitrogen ice plain informally named Sputnik Planitia. The viewer first passes over the western margin of Sputnik, where it borders the dark, cratered terrain of Cthulhu Macula, with the blocky mountain ranges located within the plains seen on the right. The tour moves north past the rugged and fractured highlands of Voyager Terra and then turns southward over Pioneer Terra -- which exhibits deep and wide pits -- before concluding over the bladed terrain of Tartarus Dorsa in the far east of the encounter hemisphere.
Digital mapping and rendering were performed by Paul Schenk and John Blackwell of the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.
Watch: NASA Releases Amazing Pluto Flyby Video
To celebrate the two-year anniversary of NASA's New Horizon probe arriving at Pluto, the space agency has released a breathtaking video showcasing the notoriously distant planet.
The remarkable presentation, culled from data obtained during the 2015 study of Pluto, provides viewers with the perspective of flying over the planet from around 8,000 miles above its surface.
While there are no signs of UFOs or alien bases, the footage is still pretty awesome when one considers that Pluto, at its furthest point, sits an astounding 4.6 billion miles away from the Earth.
As such, the video constitutes what is probably the only view of Pluto that many of us will have in our lifetimes, since it's highly unlikely that humans will make their way out to the planet anytime soon.
That said, based on the barren and seemingly unforgiving landscape of the planet, we're not sure anyone would really want to visit the faraway world anyway.
Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather 2nd (TORONTO) Press Conference!
Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather 2nd Press Conference TORONTO! Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Press Conference BEST MOMENTS!
Conor McGregor: Conor Anthony McGregor (Irish: Conchúr Antóin Mac Gréagóir; born 14 July 1988) is an Irish professional mixed martial artist who is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion, and former UFC Featherweight Champion. During his career, McGregor has competed as a featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight.
In 2008, McGregor started his mixed martial arts (MMA) career and, in 2012, he won both the Cage Warriors Featherweight and Lightweight Championships, holding both titles concurrently before vacating them to sign with the UFC. In 2015, at UFC 194, McGregor defeated José Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship via knockout thirteen seconds into the first round. This was the fastest victory in UFC title fight history. Upon defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 205, McGregor became the first fighter in the UFC's history to hold titles in two weight divisions simultaneously.
He is known for being the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA, as well as his extravagant lifestyle and trash talking.
Floyd Mayweather: Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. (born Floyd Joy Sinclair; February 24, 1977) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1996 to 2015, and currently works as a boxing promoter. Widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, undefeated as a professional, and a five-division world champion, Mayweather won fifteen world titles and the lineal championship in four different weight classes (twice at welterweight). As an amateur, he won a bronze medal in the featherweight division at the 1996 Olympics. Mayweather is a two-time winner of The Ring magazine's Fighter of the Year award (1998 and 2007), a three-time winner of the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) Fighter of the Year award (2007, 2013, and 2015), and a six-time winner of the Best Fighter ESPY Award (2007–2010, 2012–2014).
In 2016, Mayweather was ranked by ESPN as the greatest boxer, pound for pound, of the last 25 years. In the same year, he peaked as BoxRec's number one fighter of all time, pound for pound, as well as the greatest welterweight of all time. Many sporting news and boxing websites ranked Mayweather as the best boxer in the world, pound for pound, twice in a span of ten years; including The Ring, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, BoxRec, Fox Sports, and Yahoo! Sports. He is also regarded as the best defensive boxer in the sport, as well as being the most accurate puncher since the existence of CompuBox, having the highest plus–minus ratio in recorded boxing history. He finished his career with a record of 26 wins without a loss or draw in world title fights (10 by KO); 23 wins (9 KOs) in lineal title fights; 24 wins (7 KOs) against former or current world titlists; 12 wins (3 KOs) against former or current lineal champions; and 2 wins (1 KO) against International Boxing Hall of Fame inductees.
In addition to his accomplishments in the ring, Mayweather is well known for being one of the most lucrative pay-per-view (PPV) attractions of all time, in any sport. He topped the Forbes and Sports Illustrated lists of the 50 highest-paid athletes of 2012 and 2013 respectively, and the Forbes list again in both 2014 and 2015, listing him as the highest paid athlete in the world. In 2007, he founded Mayweather Promotions, his own boxing promotional firm after defecting from Bob Arum's Top Rank. Mayweather has generated approximately 19.5 million in PPV buys and $1.3 billion in revenue throughout his career, surpassing the likes of former top PPV attractions including Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya, and Manny Pacquiao.
Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Press Conference BEST MOMENTS! TRASH TALK!
Mayweather-McGregor is a matchmakers dream. Two big egos with big followings; both trash-talking extraordinaires able to sell it to the public. A bout, which very possibly could end up being one-sided, may end up making more money than any boxing match in history. Everything depends on McGregor's jab. Theoretically, if he is able to use his good reach to establish a powerful jab while stalking Mayweather, then he may be able to do something when he can put him to the ropes. It seems logical that Mayweather will be able to land some serious counter punches against an inexperienced opponent.

14th April 1561: The Nuremberg Celestial Phenomenon
On the morning of 14th April 1561, the people of Nuremberg in Germany witnessed a “dreadful apparition” in the sky. Modern UFO enthusiasts have used the Nuremberg celestial phenomenon as evidence of extra-terrestrial life, although scientists have also put forward their explanation of why hundreds of people saw what they described as an aerial battle raging in front of the sun.
The spectacle was recorded by the artist Hans Glaser who lived in Nuremberg and so presumably witnessed the event himself. He published a woodcut and text in a ‘broadsheet’ – a kind of newspaper that reveled in reporting strange or violent stories. The woodcut shows cylindrical objects; multiple-coloured discs and globes, crosses, and even tubes that look like cannon barrels all moving in the sky.
There’s no way of knowing how accurate the woodcut is, or what caused the shapes in the sky, but recent science has pointed towards atmospheric phenomena. UFO-skeptic Frank Johnson has written a convincing argument suggesting that the people of Nuremberg witnessed a parhelion, otherwise known as a sundog, caused by light refracting through clouds of ice crystals, along with other atmospheric tricks of the light including a low viewing angle of the sun. Others suggest a city-wide outbreak of ergotism, where fungus growing on grain can cause hallucinations.
Whatever the cause, the celestial phenomenon terrified the people of Nuremberg who interpreted it as a warning from God.
It seems likely that whatever happened was beyond our understanding. Perhaps some battle in another dimension which briefly conflated with our world.
Top DARPA Projects That Should Creep You Out

In addition to the many robots DARPA has created to mimic human walking, throw cinder blocks, run on four legs at cheetah speed, climb trees, grasp objects, kill targets and more, DARPA has announced projects including mapping the human brain, trying to create a physical, thinking brain for robots, computers that can think for themselves, tracking rat brains over the Internet, real-life Avatar projects, autonomous robots, electronic tattoos and pills swallowed to authenticate online access instead of passwords, mapping the neuroscience of the "fight or flight response," tracking heart beats and other long distance biometrics, quantifying and track "love" and emotive responses, mind controlling squids.... and much much more.

'All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black Sea'
Michael Hanlon - Daily Mail (UK) - February 1, 2008
Throughout history they have been the eyes that are prized.
Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood.
But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic mystery. Until now.
According to a team of researchers from Copenhagen University, a single mutation which arose as recently as 6-10,000 years ago was responsible for all the blue-eyed people alive on Earth today.
The team, whose research is published in the journal Human Genetics, identified a single mutation in a gene called OCA2, which arose by chance somewhere around the northwest coasts of the Black Sea in one single individual, about 8,000 years ago.
This, if true, would tend to support my "original Teutonic homeland" theory. Personally, I believe that this is more of an element of the whole truth, rather than an absolute truth.

The Texaco symbol: An exercise in the collective unconscious - Part 3 - Does the "T" altar represent the Irminsul?
I once heard an occult researcher refer to the Texaco symbol as a pentagram with an altar in front of it. However, could it be a Listian Vehme star rose with an Irminsul in front of it? Guido von List called the common "welcome star" or "barn star"--usually black in color--as an ancient Germanic symbol.... apparently with partly the same basic meaning as the neopagan pentagram. In other words, an ancient European version of the Indo-European or Sumerian pentagram. Actually von List made reference to the Vehme star (also: five-angled star, Truthenfuss, barn star, or welcome star), the Vehme star rose (Pentacle star with outer circle), and the Vehme cross (occultic "exoteric Christian cross" with a hidden "fifth point").
|"Barn star" (Vehme) of German origin|
An Irminsul is an altar to the Germanic god Irmin... which may have been a representation of Odin, Tyr, or another Germanic god. Some of the meanings were probably lost after Charlemagne had virtually all of them in central Europe destroyed. It sounds like it was an altar to the Germanic god or goddess of choice in the community in which it was constructed. Occasionally, "Irminism" is used as an alternate name for Germanic Neopaganism. Again..... a green Irminsul... in front of a red Vehme star.... surrounded by an outline of the circle of nature. A living green altar to the Germanic gods, within the circle of nature, and amid the literal blood-red (DNA) regeneration of nature and all of it's elements.
In the red and white Texaco symbol, one can see what appears to be an altar upon a hill or raised platform, and perhaps against the morning or evening sun. If you stare at it, it's as though your subconscious ancestral memory is telling you to ascend the platform. Then compare it to the Irminsul image, also sitting upon a raised platform. Is the Texaco symbol the spirit of Wotan (Irmin) within the five elements (Vehme) of nature (circle)? I had said it in yesterdays posting on a different topic, and I'll say it again... all of you Asutrar, Odinists, Wotanists out there should be all over this. Take the symbol back... "recapture the flag." Reappropriate.
Excerpts from EnglishNews.org ("English Asatru News") Irminsul page:
"Irminsul is a pure and ancient Germanic symbol. The name Irminsul is of Old Saxon origin meaning “arising pillar”, or "great pillar that supports”. The concept of Irminsul and its iconic, unique shape is found within the most ancient pure Germanic languages and history, from Sweden to Switzerland..."
"The Irmin component of the name is an Old Saxon adjective that transliterates as “colossal strength” or “Great/strong ”. Irminsul in its literal interpretation potentially refers to the Germanic spiritual concept of spiritual pillars, Irminsuls which are pillars that were used as totems, or statues of worship in the classic shape."
"The name Irmin potentially refers to one of the alternate regional Old Saxon names for Tyr or more realistically with Woden/Wotan/Odin. As the Old Norse attested equivalent of Irmin is Jörmunr which is a name/title ascribed to Woden/Wotan/Odin."
"It should be noted that through Old Norse alone over 220 names of deities have been attributed to different aspects or titles for Odin alone, such as Grim, Hárr, Gondlir and Jörmunr. Factor in all the Old English, Old German and regional variations, the names of Odin must over our entire history have numbered into the thousands."
