its large gravitational effects cause the rotation of earth to momentarily stop,
A Bayesian statistical analysis suggests that the probability of the companion hypothesis is comparable to or greater than the probability of the null hypothesis of a statistical fluke. Such a companion could also have produced the detached Kuiper Belt object Sedna. The putative companion could be easily detected by the recently launched Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE).
The planet is thought to be one to two times as massive as Jupiter, according to the scientists who imaged it. It orbits a star similar to a young version of our Sun. The star, GQ Lupi, has been observed by a team of European astronomers since 1999. They have made three images using the Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile. The Hubble Space Telescope and the Japanese Subaru Telescope each contributed an image, too. The work was led by Ralph Neuhaeuser of the Astrophysical Institute & University Observatory (AIU). "The detection of the faint object near the bright star is certain," Neuhaeuser told SPACE.com on Friday. The system is young, so the planet is rather warm, like a bun fresh out of the oven. That warmth made it comparatively easier to see in the glare of its host star compared with more mature planets. Also, the planet is very far from the star -- about 100 times the distance between Earth and the Sun, another factor in helping to separate the light between the two objects.

CNN just talked about the theory that there may be a massive object in the outer reaches of the solar system. The theory has been around for a while but so far there isn't a lot of evidence. A couple of guys hope there will be some soon.
Astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette think data from NASA's infrared space telescope WISE will confirm Tyche's existence and location within two years.
No "admitting". Nothing about it "hurling" toward Earth.

I believe there is a planet behind our sun. I made a YouTube video of pictures of something behind the sun. I just can't post it yet until I do the 20 post.
If such object is passing through the inner system, how come nor a single amateur astronomer of the entire planet, has noticed it yet?

That is NOT CW Leonis, I called a local planetarium and they definitely confirmed that. So stop spreading that bull#. They said they were not sure what that object is but is NOT CW Leonis. You fail. Nice try dude.
Also, how do you ignore increasing (massively too by the way) earth changes that would be caused by a passing celestial object, just like have been seeing the past few years : HUGE quakes, Tsunamis, record heat waves, floods, tornadoes, government prepping like crazy for "something big", near earth satelites now classified, bunkers being built, seed vaults, sinkholes, massive increases in metreorites, it goes on and on.
What will it take for someone like you to wake up? Nothing will, we know your type.

In this Letter I compare recent findings suggesting a low binary star fraction for late-type stars with knowledge concerning the forms of the stellar initial and present-day mass functions for masses down to the hydrogen-burning limit. This comparison indicates that most stellar systems formed in the Galaxy are likely single and not binary, as has been often asserted. Indeed, in the current epoch two-thirds of all main-sequence stellar systems in the Galactic disk are composed of single stars. Some implications of this realization for understanding the star and planet formation process are briefly mentioned.
