To the OP, it seems that you've already made your mind up and are just wanting to acquire a circle of similarly narrow-minded types. Congratulations, epic fail accomplished.
Sitchin's speculations are entirely discounted by professional scientists, historians, and archaeologists, who note many problems with his translations of ancient texts and with his understanding of physics, categorizing his work as pseudoscience.

If there is a brown dwarf out there in the Kuiper belt more astronomical measurements of the paths of the known planets and the the PAN-Starrs project place such an object out over 2000AU from the sun. It has to be way over 50 times the distance out to Pluto.
Brown dwarfs are larger than Jupiter. Neptune is smaller than Jupiter so that is a mistake.
Since the brown dwarf has to be out so far it can't have an orbiting companion that would enter the orbits of the known planets. The orbit would be affected by the stronger gravity of the sun. The object would also affect the orbits of the known planets and that would be observable.
So clearly the book is not using the latest findings of astronomy.

Nibiru is not a planet. Nibiru isn't even a physical thing. Call that object in the video what you want, it isn't Nibiru. It really can't be that hard to understand. The amount of total ignorance is amazing.

so your not banned, or weren't banned?
As I rewatched the video it occurred to me the possibility of it being Mercury is still on the table for me. I say that based on solar flares that appeared to be caused be the object COULD have been affected by small comets and we can't tell that. Did you find a wider angle or a combined view in steoroscopic view? That would help determine if I saw flares going toward the object that were in fact influenced strictly by the object. Or it was normal response to collisions of comets or asteroids with the sun.
