Six things you didn't know about Angela Merkel
Angela Merkel is indeed "a quarter Polish". Now we know: Not only was her grandfather of Polish origin, the chancellor almost was born Angela Kazmierczak. Her grandfather was a Ludwig Kazmierczak, born 1896 in Poznan – then part of the German Reich. The family was proud of its Polish roots. Obviously not grandpa Ludwig who emigrated to Berlin when Poznan became Polish again after the first world war. He married a Berlin woman, and they had a son – Horst Kazmierczak, Angela's father. The family decided to cut their Polish roots in the early 30s. The Kazmierczaks followed a common fashion and Germanised their family name to Kasner. Father and son converted from Catholicism to the Protestant church – something Merkel didn't know until recently. That was a puzzling discovery for a woman who grew up in a rectory and whose Protestantism is key to understanding her personality. When Merkel's Polish past became public, a second cousin immediately invited her for dinner. Watch out, she might show up one day in the Alley of the Cosmonauts in Poznan.

Has anyone mentioned that, in his speech, Trump made a point of saying "Exclamation mark"/point? Did he also draw one in the air with his finger very pointedly? (Only noticed it out of the corner of my eye).
I assume that is related to the Snowden tweet/Exclamation mark recently?
Although the Templars never held many possessions, they always tried to establish properties from which they could manage their financial affairs i.e the collection of money and bills of exchange owed to them. The Order of the Templars became the first international banking organisation. Their money was collected in the West and used to maintain the armies protecting the Holy Land.
In 1312, under pressure from the French King Phillipe IV, Pope Clement V suppressed the Order of the Templars. The Wavre farm, together with all other Templar possessions, was transferred to the Order of the Knights of Malta.
The chapel has five gothic windows, finished in blue stone. The entrance is on the left. Above it, are the coats of arms of the Commander of Chantraine and of Jérôme de Homblires, both of the Order of Malta. Remnants of the coat of arms of the Commander Pierre de la Fontaine are also visible.
In 1799, during the French Revolution, the chapel was sold off and fell into disrepair but was restored in around 1930. The middle stained-glass window bears the image of Our Lady with the baby Jesus with, on the right, St. Hubertus and, on the left, St. Eloi.

On June 18, 2007, King Juan Carlos of Spain conferred to Abdullah, the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia, the Catholic Order of the Golden Fleece. With this act, the Order lost its significance.
By offering the Golden Fleece, whose purpose was to defend the Church primarily against the Mohammedans, to one of the Muslim’s more important representatives today, Juan Carlos completely dishonors one of the most prestigious honorific orders of Christendom.
Reparation for such a betrayal of the ideal of Chivalry made by a reigning Catholic King is in order.

Watch the speech.
For much of the book, Jacobsen seems firmly ensconced in the skeptics camp, but in the final chapters she seems to succumb to her own evidence. One of her most convincing examples involves a clandestine unit in Army intelligence known as Detachment G, or Det G.
In 1977, the Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) Systems Exploitation Detachment (SED) started the GONDOLA WISH program to "evaluate potential adversary applications of remote viewing." Army Intelligence then formalized this in mid-1978 as an operational program GRILL FLAME, based in buildings 2560 and 2561 at Fort Meade, MD (INSCOM "Detachment G").
Because of remote viewing being an evolving intelligence collecting media...
Fort Meade Shooting
Headquarters for GRILL FLAME were Fort Meade, Maryland. This was the location where the NSA and the Army’s INSCOM conducted a majority of the RV research. In 1979, very few individuals knew of the existence of the government’s RV program. According to a particular Army memo: “Access is limited to those personnel approved on a ‘by name’ basis.” It was at this point when most of the military folks began undergoing Swann’s “training” procedures, which were mostly based upon the principles of Scientology’s “auditing” procedures.
You cannot possibly imagine the size of this.
