Hotel of doom, North Korea

September 29, 2022

something interesting

(internet image)

The Ryugyong Hotel, also known as the Hotel of Doom is the world’s largest abandoned building. Construction began in 1987 under Kim Il-sung’s direction. Standing at 1,080 feet tall, the hotel was to have 105 floors and 3,000 rooms, topped with a 14-floor cone at its pinnacle. The cone was supposed to revolve, and contain restaurants, shops, and ballrooms. In 2003, construction was halted.

The shell of the building was completed on schedule. It was built in the exact shape and size of George Orwell’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ propaganda building in the novel, 1984. In the novel, the ministry serves as a propaganda machine and was responsible for falsifying historical events. Whether the shape and design of the building mimicking Orwell’s propaganda building was done on purpose, no one knows.

Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength”

…may not be the exact same, but pretty close

At first, the Soviet Union backed the construction of the hotel, but when the USSR collapsed, so did funding for the construction of the building.

In 2008, construction started again, with an announcement of a 2012 opening date. The date was pushed to 2013, then only a partial opening, then once again cancelled altogether. Two companies that supposedly made a deal to finish the construction pulled out.

In 2017, signs of work started to appear. But still no opening date…it’s still dubbed the tallest unoccupied building and the 63rd tallest building overall.

  • For now, one side of the 1,080-foot building has been outfitted with LED screens used for propaganda light shows.
  • Each of the building’s three sections, which join together at the top, are 328 feet (100 meters) long, according to Atlas Obscura. 
  • It would cost an estimated $2 billion to finally finish the Ryugyong Hotel, according to Reuters.

Global Increase In Natural Disasters – Another Birth Pain Sign Increases: prophecy news watch…“The giant rock that we all live on is starting to go haywire, and the shaking that we are experiencing now is going to get a whole lot worse during the years that are ahead of us. Earthquakes will increase in power and frequency, volcanic eruptions will become more common, great storms will cause unprecedented destruction, and immense droughts and floods will continue to ravage much of the planet. And through it all, many of the “experts” will continue to insist that everything is completely “normal” even to the bitter end. You can believe them if you want. Or you can believe the evidence that is happening right in front of your eyes.”

The choice is up to you.

take care
stay safe
much love

And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. 
To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen!

8 Recipes That Shouldn’t Have Been Forgotten: ask a prepper…salt rising bread, sugar cream pie, homity pie and Hot Red Cross are a couple recipes mentioned in this article. One recipe calls for heavy cream. I recently found a recipe for homemade heavy cream: combine 3/4 cup of milk with 1/4 cup melted butter = 1 cup heavy cream. Also, if you ever need buttermilk, you can add a tablespoon lemon juice to 1 cup of milk and let sit for 5 minutes. Use it immediately.

save the children

September 28, 2022

The corruption runs deep. So deep.
The video below is about 4 minutes long. It’s about the pedophilia ring.

Until about two years ago, I didn’t realize exactly how bad this really was. I knew it was deep, but not this deep. It’s devastating to think that this has been going on under our noses for how long?

For a while after I started seeing videos like this, I had a really hard time watching movies. I still do, actually. My then boyfriend didn’t think it was “that bad”, until he started seeing things for himself. I actually learned that I couldn’t talk to him about certain things, at least until he started seeing things for himself. He said I was crazy…It’s not that bad…but now, I think he understands. At least a little bit. I still can’t bring things up, but we have been able to have some conversations about this.

my son

When my son was young my mom used to get on my case about letting him go to the bathroom by himself when we were shopping. She was worried about him being kidnapped. What she didn’t know was that he went to the bathroom with me up until he was around nine years old – at least. Whether I had to go, or he had to go, he went with me, or I went with him. Once he was in his teens, I’d walk to the bathroom and wait for him outside. Even now, sometimes I wait in the general area. He does the same for me. Isn’t that what a your supposed to do, when you care about someone?

Of course, I told her he doesn’t use the bathroom unless I’m with him. I never had anyone say anything to me, and it was rare that I even got any strange looks. Most women understand, especially mothers. Back then, there weren’t any “family” bathrooms. They didn’t come around until later. I knew I needed to protect my son, no matter what, even though I didn’t realize fully how bad child trafficking was.

hands off our children

end human trafficking now
