There is a strong link in the quatrains
between the advent of Nostradamus’ comet (’bearded star") and war in
the Mediterranean. What isn’t clear from Nostradamus is exact times,
though he does provide a ’time frame’ which puts us in 2004 right in
the middle of his end time predictions.
I think too that there are a number of ’Nostradamus’ in the world
today (David Booth?) that because of the religious/political climate
are not able to speak in anything other than coded messages.
On Booth’s site he has posted, "Antares Occultation on January 7,
2005" on his front page. The information about this comet is NOT on his
front page but on a ’secondary’ one.
Is this significant? I don’t know but if his site is indeed a
’coded’ one, like many believe, then this would make sense and is
showing that this comet is an ’event’ that though ’secondary’ is
nonetheless an ’important’ marker in a ’timeline’ known to those
that are ’knowledgeable’ about these events.
I alone could fill up volumes with the historical/mythological
significance of a 2,000 year comet transiting Orion and the
Like many of you who also know David Booth, I have always been more
than skeptical about him, but something about him, his ’story’, the
’dates’ he has given (that haven’t really ’predicted’ anything,
other than vague ’warnings’ of mass death and destruction) his ’here
one minute/gone the next’ appearances on the ’public stage’ and the
’strange’ family ’connections’ associated with him make me really,
really wonder what is the truth.
Being more familiar (by far!) with
Nostradamus I’ve begun to see
certain similarities between them.
The both ’lived’ during periods of great world changes with ’death’
around just about any corner one would turn. They both felt/feel
’compelled to impart their ’knowledge’ but because of the politics
and religion of their times would be persecuted if they did so.
"Some called Nostradamus a simple
visionary, or, in coarser phrase, a fool; others accused him of
magic and of being in too close treaty with the Devil"
"He (Nostradamus) kept them (his predictions) by him for a long
time, half afraid to risk the publication; he foresaw there was
danger, and that it would lead to infinite detraction, calumny,
and backbiting, as indeed it finally fell out."
The significant differences between the
two though can be, in my own opinion, attributed to the vast
difference in time each of them were faced with when imparting what
they knew. It’s as if David Booth has ’condensed’ into a year what
to Nostradamus would have been two decades.
Central to both of them were their ’first’ verifiable predictions.
With Booth he remains the only person to have had verified prior to
the event (modern times) a prediction of a future event (May 25,
1979, Chicago, American Airlines disaster) and by no less than an
agency of the government. (Which in and of itself at least ’alludes’
to a higher ’connection’ of sorts between him and the ’rulers’.)
Both Nostradamus and David Booth also had/have an almost ’lost’
ancient knowledge relating to ’signs in the heavens’ as foretelling
events here on earth. It’s more than a coincidence that the dates
Booth has given publicly also coincide with some pretty ancient
astrological knowledge that was known not only by Nostradamus but
goes back to the Druids.
It is also important to realize that the programs David Booth
utilized for ‘releasing’ his ‘information’ were also his
Here is just one example from an interview David Booth had with
Jeff Rense (http://www.rense.com)
April 20 - May 20
“Booth: People, if they want to really start worrying?
Start worrying about between April 20 and May 20... the world’s
going to change, you know, in the next, you know, 40 days.
Rense: In the next 40 days, from April 20th to May 20th,
a lot of people are going to ...have matriculated out of here.
Booth: Oh, absolutely.”
A quick hearing of this conversation
would apparently lead you to believe that David Booth is predicting
a disaster that would occur between the dates he had stated and that
‘a lot’ of people would die.
But that is not what was said. Hearing this exchange (and the pause
Jeff Rense has right before he states, “…have matriculated out of
here.” Is accurately documented in the written transcript) Jeff Rense uses a very particular word to add emphasis to the dates
Booth had given, ‘matriculated’.
And that word is both a ‘key’ and a ‘clue’ because it has one, and
only one, meaning:
MATRICULATE: To admit or be admitted into a
group, especially a college or university, derived from the Medieval
Latin diminutive of matrix.
MATRIX: A situation or surrounding
substance within which something else originates, develops, or is
(A purely subjective observation also is the pause before
Jeff Rense saying the word was like someone reading from a script.)
What a very strange word to use. A lot of people between the dates
of April 20th and May 20th are going to be admitted to a group? A
group of what?
So let’s look at the dates David Booth gave, do the dates of April
20th and May 20th have any significance? Well, only if you’re
knowledgeable about the ancient Druids it turns out. Both April 20th
and May 20th are New Moon dates and ‘bookend’ a Druid month!
Now the almanacs one would currently consult would show the New Moon
dates and times as follows: APR. date:19th hour:13 minute: 21/ MAY
date:19th hour:4 minute:52. So, why the discrepancy of David Booth
being one day off of the exact day, stating the 20th instead of the
19th? Would he actually have forgotten that ‘small’ fact?
Not even close because the Druids believed in a duality to
everything so for every date they also had a ‘soul’ date that ran
parallel, but one day separated from ‘real’ events.
Though much is more unknown about the Druids then known, here are a
few ‘comments’ about them from those who knew them much better than
“The Druids were possessed of "...
much knowledge of the stars and their motion, of the size of the
world and of the earth, of natural philosophy... and in
reckoning birthdays and the new moon and new year their unit of
reckoning is the night followed by the day..."
“The Druids are prophets because "...they can foretell certain
events by the Pythagorean reckoning and calculations..."
“The Druids measured time using a lunar calendar "... for it is
by the moon that they measure their months and years and also
their ages of 30 years..."
But in our world today here is what
‘connects’ the Druids, Nostradamus and David Booth, the art of scrying.
"Great prophets and seers, with most
all using some form of scrying have come and gone throughout
history. In Greek, Roman and Celtic eras prophesies were made by
oracles while scrying into lakes, pools, or large bowls of water
or ink. The Egyptians studied and practiced dream scrying and
the Druids were renowned for and practiced cloud scrying.
Arguably the most well known and famous prophet, Nostradamus, is
said to have used a black obsidian mirror as well as a dish
filled with ink to make famed predictions.”
(Scrying is the name given to
the ancient technique of gazing into an object such as a crystal
ball - or skull - for the purposes of divination)
The conclusions I’ve reached based upon
my research clearly show that David Booth’s first prediction not
only preceded the event happening but was in fact verified by the
Federal Aviation Administration to, among others, The Cincinnati
Enquirer, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Omni Magazine, 20/20 News
Program, BBC, In Search Of , That’s Incredible, Arthur Clarke’s
Mysterious World and Playboy Magazine, all of which did feature and
prominent stories about David Booth spanning the years between
(Note: The BBC featured David Booth in a
program taped in 1999 that Booth never gave permission to air in the
What has been happening over this past year since David Booth
‘released’ his vision of 2003 relating to a large celestial body
having a close encounter with planet earth is an ‘apparent’ scouring
of Internet resources relating to David Booth’s first prediction.
One example is the premier research site
having over 300 public references to David Booth now show none. Why?
More important to ask would be who, or what organization, is able to
achieve this type of ‘scrubbing’?
(Note: One of most informative written articles about David
Booth’s first prediction was featured in the March, 1980 edition of
the men’s magazine Playboy and titled: "Bad Dreams in the Future
Tense" by Walter L. Lowe. Playboy magazine was headquartered in
Chicago at the time of the 1979 American Airline disaster and had
more than a passing interest in David Booth as this article shows.
This issue is available through online companies dealing in past
issue magazines, such as:
(Note: The ”In Search Of” television program that featured
David Booth was titled “Air Disaster Predictions” A study of reports
that major air crashes have been "seen" or predicted beforehand in
nightmares. This series can be seen at times in reruns and features
in depth interviews with Federal Aviation officials Paul Williams,
FAA Administer for the Greater Cincinnati Airport and Jack Barker,
FAA Regional Director based in Atlanta, Georgia.)
There is no discussion having to do with David Booth that can leave
out the allegations of plagiarism surrounding his 2004 book,
Red: The Coming Destruction of the United States, 2004. But before
addressing my research on that issue it’s important to realize what
his book is about, or rather what it is not about.
With David Booth releasing the information about his second
‘dream/vision’ one would have expected his book to be about that
subject, but it wasn’t. What the book was instead about, at first
glance, was an ad hoc mixture of mostly known facts relating to past
and present events surrounding the formation of a shadow government
of the United States and extensive positive information about
President Bush and
the Bush family.
David Booth fittingly begins his book with the words, “Once upon a
time….”, in an apparent gesture acknowledging his ‘liberal’ use of
other peoples works in his book.
There exist numerous online articles detailing the exact specifics
regarding the accusations of plagiarism such as:
The fundamental ‘flaw’ in any accusation
of plagiarism against David Booth rests on two very solid
‘foundations’ that support him.
The first is David Booth’s opening statement,
“For those of you who are looking
for the ultimate truth, fully documented, referenced, and
without error, the ‘ultimate’ book of truth….keep looking…”
Code Red: The Coming Destruction of the
United States, 2004, © 2004, David Booth, Long Trail
The second rests with Fair Use copyright
law, which in part states:
"Editing, cropping, morphing, and
other transformations of underlying content are a common
practice in multimedia productions. Among the bundle of
exclusive rights is the right to create a derivative work. A
derivative work is based upon one or more pre-existing works."
"Copyright law permits an author
access to the copyright protected expression of another author’s
work when creating a new work so long as the new work is not
substantially similar to the earlier work." (http://www.temple.edu/lawschool/dpost/copyrit.htm)
In the above referenced article, “David
Booth’s Book Found Almost Totally Plagiarized”, the author in
“I found that, starting at page 10,
the first half of the book is a compilation of articles, located
on the internet, attributed to various authors. None of the
articles were attributed to David Booth. It appears that whoever
"wrote" this book, took the material from a range of different
online sites which included everything from encyclopedia entries
to material from NASA.
Most of the pages in the book that
match are verbatim to what is found on the net. There are
sometimes slight variations in the book where a sentence is left
out or something is added to the beginning or end of the article
found on the internet."
The book appears to be a "cut and
paste" job. That said, whoever did the "editing" in putting
these articles together did so in an informed and deliberate
manner, connecting the random pieces together to form a coherent
Notice how strange it is that the
article writer who states that David Booth plagiarized his book then
lays out the same truth that he had in that the book was in every
way fully compliant with the law.
A reading of the associated articles/information in the book show
clearly that Booth included various, numerous and dissimilar works
from a number of sources in order to put them together in a manner,
and to reach a conclusion, that they could not have reached by any
other means thereby creating a unique work that though supported by
its numerous ‘parts’, by themselves could not have achieved the
unique goal Booth accomplished in putting this information together.
The logical question having to be asked then is why David Booth
didn’t defend his book; it would seem at first glance. But, and as
always seems to be the case with David Booth, what at first appear
to be objective facts fall by the wayside when put under the light
The controversy surrounding these baseless allegations has had the
effect of keeping David Booth in the ‘limelight’ instead of causing
him any public damage, and I believe that this was intended and
indeed even orchestrated. What remains shrouded are all of the
reasons for this being so.
Lost in the muddle of all of these events was what David Booth's book
was intended to be, and to quote him:
“When you first opened this
book I told you I was going to tell you a story, and that’s what
I’ve done to the best of my ability. But in listening to my story
you’ve also put yourself on another path, one less, way less,
traveled by your fellow human beings. The information I’ve put in my
story are all true facts, but less known than maybe those you’ve
been used to hearing. Most people can’t or won’t believe facts
anymore unless they’ve heard them from the popular newspapers,
radio, or television outlets utilized for indoctrinating the masses.
And that’s pretty sad isn’t it?”
Putting everything about David Booth in any sort of ‘order’ can’t be
done at this time because this ‘story’ is still playing out. What
can begin to be glimpsed however is that whoever David Booth is, and
who the powers behind him and against him are, this a remarkable
saga worthy of any researchers time and effort.
Very rarely in human history do figures like David Booth arise, and
I can’t find any other way to say that. Just listening to his voice
strikes a chord of meaning in anyone who has heard him. But, are his
efforts (and by extension those who support him) for human good or
At this point in time all the evidence points to the good, but I’m
personally still reserving my opinion, as you know I don’t believe
in an ultimate type of god figure.
I know too that I have left out a number of other issues, Fatima
being one, but these are currently still playing out and based upon
the clues David Booth has given already I don’t think it will be to
long before we’re all shaken to the core.
So in my last few words, here is what I believe is true. I believe
that David Booth sometime prior to 1979 acquired the ancient art of scrying
(scrying is the name given to the ancient technique of gazing
into an object such as a crystal ball (or skull) for the purposes of
divination). After releasing his first prediction I believe he became a
part of a more powerful organization. Since 1979 I believe he has
accumulated a complete chronicle of all future events dealing with
he terms ‘the last days’.
I believe that beginning with his first book the releasing of this
information began. I believe that between the dates of April 20th
and May 20th a ‘select’ group of people were ‘admitted’ to a
‘school’ to begin their ‘lessons’. I believe that he is protected by
a group or organization more powerful than any one single
