Magog Rhys Petley On Walpurgis Night

Magog Rhys Petley On Walpurgis Night

Welsh werewolf British Labour MP Magog Rhys Petley awoke in a daze.

He gathered from the conversation around him that he was in some sort of luxurious penthouse apartment.

After a few more moments of listening to the conversation around him, he gathered that this luxurious penthouse apartment he was in must be on Park Avenue in New York City.

Banners flowing from the ceiling said tonight is Walpurgis Night.

Walpurgis Night? Magog thought to himself, wasn’t that April 30th?

Wasn’t that the date Hitler shot himself? he wondered.

He suddenly noticed a huge poster on the wall that said, R.I.P. Adolf.

What sort of sicko mourns the passing of Hitler? Magog wondered.

He gathered that the party’s host was hiding behind a set of dark black curtains while the guests chatted to the curtains.

How did he get here to this particular Park Avenue penthouse apartment in New York City? Magog wondered.

The last thing he remembered was being in a Moscow street where he was attacked by a very sexy Russian Vampiress.

He had the feeling that was over a couple of weeks ago and that a lot had happened since.

But Magog couldn’t remember what.

“Unfortunately gentlemen,” the man behind the curtains intoned, “despite my offer and the high fee I was willing to pay her, the world-famous New Orleans songstress Angelique Dumont refused to be with us this evening to entertain us with her singing voice and her… other assets.”

The crowd groaned.

Magog himself was disappointed.

He was a big fan of Miss Angelique Dumont having seen her in several musicals in the theatre district of West London.

In fact Magog often had sexual fantasies about Miss Angelique Dumont.

“Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling couldn’t be with us this evening either,” the man behind the curtains announced, “as the post card someone recently sent him from New York City was a post card of Harlem which showed a lot of black men walking the streets.”

Magog helped himself to a piece of cheddar cheese that the Afro-American butler offered him.

“Gentlemen,” the man behind the curtains raised an inflatable balloon in the shape of a giant glass of champagne above the curtains, “I give you the future Fuhrer of the world.”

Who the Hell is the future Fuhrer of the world? Magog wondered.

And why the Hell was everyone in the room looking at him for?

The Tamurlane File

April 28, 2014 at 6:21 pm (Espionage, Geopolitics and International Relations, International Espionage, News, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The Tamurlane File

The high-ranking Mossad official who was known only as the Controller of the Golem was reading through his files.

Now that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had announced that he was increasing the power of the Turkish Secret Service giving it greater powers of surveillance and extending immunity for its agents, the Controller of the Golem decided to read all the information Mossad had about a certain individual within the Turkish Secret Service who was known only by the code name Tamurlane.

The Controller of the Golem had concerns about this Tamurlane.

He was convinced the man was anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

Coincidentally just as he was reading through the Tamurlane File, he was handed a new document that had been sent to Mossad by an Israeli agent in the field who was reporting from Pergamon Turkey.

The Mossad agent in Pergamon had apparently uncovered the true identity of Tamurlane.

Excitedly the Controller of the Golem grabbed the newly arrived document and read the name.

Tamurlane was one Imam Mehmet Moustapha the imam of a mosque in Istanbul.

As the Controller of the Golem read details about Imam Mehmet Moustapha, he felt literally quite sick to his stomach.

Cardinal JM and His Sacrifice To Zeus/Jupiter

April 27, 2014 at 7:51 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, History, Horror, Mystery/horror, News, Religion, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Cardinal JM and His Sacrifice To Zeus/Jupiter

Cardinal JM had sent a message to His Holiness Pope Francis that he was hopelessly sick and that he could not possibly make it to the canonization ceremonies of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII.

The real reason was that he had a visitation last night from the god he worshipped in private- the Ancient Greek vampire Zeus.

Zeus had told him that a friend of his had tried to do something very important for world affairs.

But that the prayers of one John Paul II within the Communion of Saints had restrained his friend’s hand.

And his friend did not like his hand being restrained.

To counteract the effects of John Paul II’s prayers, Zeus had asked that a live sacrifice be performed to him Zeus in his form of the ancient Roman god Jupiter at the ruins of the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus behind the Palazzo dei Conservatori in the Caffarelli Garden on the Capitoline Hill.

So Cardinal JM summoned his secretary Father Oliver Thomas Wardenclyffe (a former Episcopalian priest who was a worshipper of the Ancient Greek god Apollo in his private life) and explained to him the situation.

Father Wardenclyffe went out to where the Polish pilgrims were camping out in Saint Peter’s Square waiting for the canonization of their beloved native son Karol Josef Wojtyla aka Pope John Paul II.

He kidnapped the 3-month old infant son of a young Polish couple.

Father Wardenclyffe brought the child to Cardinal JM.

Together they went out to the ruins of the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill where at the exact moment that Pope Francis proclaimed John Paul II a Saint, they sacrificed the infant Polish boy to Zeus/Jupiter.

. . .

At the ruins of the reconstructed Temple of Trajan in Pergamon Turkey, Imam Mehmet Moustapha (who only paid devotion to Allah with his lips but in his heart worshipped the ancient Norse-Germanic gods Odin, Tyr and Thor) sacrificed a pig to Zeus at the exact moment Pope Francis proclaimed John Paul II a Saint.

. . .

At the Pergamon Altar inside the Pergamon Museum on the Museum Island in the German capital of Berlin, a neo-Nazi and worshipper of Odin, Tyr and Thor cut off the right hand of a young Polish boy that he had kidnapped and laid it at the altar to Zeus.

He did this at the exact moment that Pope Francis proclaimed Pope John Paul II a Saint.

The Black Hand

April 25, 2014 at 6:31 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, History, Horror, Mystery/horror, News, Vampire novel) ()

The Black Hand

It was St. Vitus’ Day June 15th 1389. The army of Serbian Prince Lazar was battling the Ottoman Turkish Army of Sultan Murad I to decide the fate of Kosovo and Serbia. Whether Kosovo and the Serbs would be ruled by Serbs or whether they would be ruled by the Ottomans.

The battle was known to history as the Battle of Kosovo. It was also called the Battle of Kosovo Field as well as the Battle of Blackbird’s Field.

The bulk of both armies were wiped out in the battle. Both Prince Lazar and Sultan Murad lost their lives in it.

But the Serbian Army had pretty well suffered the most casualties so that the end result in the following years was that all of the Serbian Principalities would become vassals of the Ottoman Empire.

During the battle after his master was slain, Prince Lazar’s right hand man Vuk happened to notice something odd about the right hand of Sultan Murad’s right hand man Mehmet after Mehmet had slain Prince Lazar.

Mehmet’s right hand was pure white whereas the rest of his body was the darker tanned skin colour of the Ottoman Turks.

Vuk fought Mehmet and slew him.

He then cut off Mehmet’s mysterious pure white right hand and left the battlefield.

Far away in a forest, Vuk made camp and lit a fire.

He took Mehmet’s pure white right hand, put it on his sword and then held it over the fire to cook.

He was planning to eat it.

Vuk fell asleep while roasting the hand and the hand fell into the fire where it was burned a charcoal black.

Midnight arrived and an owl screeched in the forest.

A raven with blood in its beak flew down by the fire and pecked at the fingers of the charcoal burnt black hand.

The charcoal burnt hand suddenly came to life and crawled away into the forest.

. . .

It was September 6th 1901. Certain members of the Serbian Army met to form a new secret society.

The name of the society was Unification or Death.

Its aim was to unite all of the territories of the Balkan Peninsula that had a majority South Slavic population into a single kingdom under the rule of the King of Serbia.

This would of course mean taking control of some territories that were now part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The Unification or Death secret society was also known as the Black Hand because its members swore and took their secret oaths by placing their right hands on a severed charcoal burnt hand.

. . .

It was June 28th 1914 and the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie the Duchess of Hohenberg were visiting the city of Sarajevo the capital of the Austro-Hungarian province of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

In the crowd waiting for the imperial couple’s carriage to pass by on the streets was one Gavrilo Princip a Bosnian Serb and a member of Young Bosnia the territory’s youth wing of the Black Hand secret society.

As the Imperial Carriage passed by, Gavrilo Princip raised his hand and fired his gun killing the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie the Duchess of Hohenberg.

That assassination would lead to the July Crisis of 1914 in which the Austro-Hungarian Empire issued an ultimatum to the Kingdom of Serbia and then invaded the country.

Within days of Austro-Hungary’s July 28th 1914 invasion of Serbia, other great European powers Germany, Russia, France and then Britain were drawn in.

By August 4th 1914, all of these great European powers were at war with one another.

World War I had begun.

Such was the end result of that fatal moment when the Black Hand’s Young Bosnia member Gavrilo Princip had fired those shots at Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie.

At his feet as he fired his gun was a severed charcoal burnt black hand.

The hand crawled away in the crowd amidst the ensuing chaos following the Archduke’s assassination.

. . .

It was the evening of March 11th 1938.

At 10 minutes to eight in the evening March 11th 1938, Austrian Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg took to the radio to address his people on rising tensions with the Nazi government in Berlin.

He concluded his radio address with these words, “God protect Austria.”

At 8 PM on March 11th 1938, a charcoal burnt black hand crossed the border from Germany to Austria.

A day later March 12th 1938, German troops would follow and cross the German-Austrian border into Austria.

By March 13th 1938, the Anschluss – the German annexation of Austria would be complete.

On March 15th 1938, Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler proudly proclaimed “the entry of my homeland into the German Reich” from the balcony of the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna.

A Japanese Zen Buddhist monk who stood amidst the cheering crowds in the street suddenly looked down and saw a severed charcoal burnt hand at his feet.

He also discovered the answer to that centuries old Zen Buddhist riddle, “What is the sound of one hand clapping?”.

. . .

At midnight September 1st 1939 a severed charcoal burnt black hand crossed the border from Germany into Poland.

Later that same day German troops would follow in crossing the border.

. . .

On August 6th 1945 a severed charcoal burnt black hand crawled along the streets of Hiroshima as an atomic mushroom cloud lit up the skies.

. . .

On June 25th 1950, a severed charcoal burnt black hand crossed the 38th parallel- it crossed the border from North Korea to South Korea.

North Korean troops followed and invaded South Korea.

The Korean War had begun.

. . .

It was May 13th 1981.

Saint Peter’s Square in Rome.

A Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca fired 4 shots at Pope John Paul II.

In the chaos that ensued, no one noticed a severed charcoal burnt black hand (that had been at the feet of Mehmet Ali Agca) scurrying away in the crowd.

. . .

September 11th 2001.

New York City.

30 seconds past 8:46 AM that morning of September 11th a severed charcoal black hand was walking the streets and sidewalks of New York City just below the World Trade Center.

But no one noticed.

For all eyes were on the skies as a jumbo jet American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Face of the North Tower of the World Trade Center between Floors 93 and 99.

. . .

On March 18th 2014 a severed charcoal burnt black hand crossed the border from Russia into Crimea.

At that exact moment, Russian President Vladimir Putin in a speech to the Russian Parliament formally announced the annexation of Crimea by Russia.

. . .

On the evening of April 24th 2014 (which was Saint Mark’s Eve) in Saint Mark’s Cemetery in Sarajevo, a severed black hand placed a black rose on the grave of Gavrilo Princip the Black Hand assassin of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

. . .

April 25th 2014.

Saint Mark’s Day.

10 AM.

A German general was briefing a meeting of deputy Defence ministers of the NATO countries.

The topic was the situation in Ukraine.

The general Wolfgang Vulkan had only one eye.

Every so often Gen. Vulkan would glance in the direction of another German general who would nod for confirmation of what Gen. Vulkan was saying.

Canada’s assistant deputy Defence minister, as he glanced at Gen. Vulkan, thought the man resembled drawings he had seen of the Norse god Odin (or as he was called in the old High German tongue Wotan).

He then looked at the fellow German general that Gen. Vulkan kept looking at for confirmation of what he was saying.

He noticed that general’s right hand was missing.

He immediately thought of that old Norse god Tyr who had lost his right hand to that demonic Norse wolf Fenrir after Fenrir had bit it off when Tyr had bound the creature.

The assistant Defence minister then recalled some New Age guru in Toronto who had said a few years back that Fenrir’s bonds were now lose and Fenrir had broken free and the Battle of Ragnarok (the final Battle of the Norse gods at the end of the world) would happen soon.

For a moment the Canadian Assistant Deputy Defence Minister mused as if all those ancient Norse myths were true,

Whatever did Fenrir do with Tyr’s right hand?

And where was that right hand today?

. . .

At 11:59 PM and 36 seconds the evening of April 25th 2014 ( the night of the Feast Day of Saint Mark), a severed charcoal burnt black hand crossed the border from Russia to eastern Ukraine.

Svetlana Kireeva On Earth Day

April 22, 2014 at 7:01 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, History, Horror, Mystery/horror, News, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Svetlana Kireeva On Earth Day

Spanish vampire Manuel de Rivera y Vargas was walking the streets of Memphis Tennessee.

Manuel was a good vampire.

In fact, he was a close friend of the famous Canadian vampire hunter Christopher Dracul Van Helsing who slew evil vampires.

Manuel a concert pianist by profession had been turned into a vampire against his will by the Egyptian Vampiress Isis in New York City back in 1942 after he had performed a particularly rousing rendition of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in a Manhattan concert hall.

Although Manuel like all vampires needed human blood to survive, he refused to attack humans to get it.

He bought vials of blood from hospitals and the Red Cross.

The only person he had ever bitten and also turned into a vampire was a young woman who was dying of cancer and had requested it because she wanted to live a few more years.

The woman was Angelique Dumont an aspiring young classically trained singer and actress.

Manuel had found her in a crypt in a New Orleans cemetery which was submerged by floodwaters when Hurricane Katrina had smashed into Louisiana back in the summer of 2005.

Miss Dumont had gone to visit the Dumont Family Crypt to tell her ancestors that she was dying of cancer when the hurricane suddenly hit.

When Manuel found her almost submerged under water in the crypt, she refused to leave.

She said he could either bite her and turn her into a vampire or let her die by drowning than face the awful fate of an agonizing death by cancer.

So Manuel had granted her request.

Miss Dumont was now a successful singer and actress who appeared in musicals in the theatre district of West London in England.

The New Orleans Songstress as she was dubbed by the British press was particularly noted for playing the role of Christine Daae in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom of The Opera.

Like Manuel, Angelique did not attack humans but bought bottles of human blood from hospitals.

As for Manuel, he had watched the woman he loved- a beautiful young Iranian girl and reformer- being murdered by the tyrannical mullah’s regime in Tehran in the wake of the street protests that had gripped Iran in 2009-2010 following Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s re-election as President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Now Manuel was in Memphis Tennessee taking a personal pilgrimage honouring another great musician he admired- Elvis Presley.

As Manuel stood outside Graceland, he blinked.

And the vampire Manuel although a supernatural creature himself was in shock.

For just like the singer in that song Walking In Memphis, he had just seen the Ghost of Elvis.

What could that possibly mean?

. . .

In another Memphis- Memphis, Egypt- the eerie winged Flying Eye of Horus flew above the ruins of the pillared hall of Rameses II at Memphis.

. . .

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II lay in bed.

From a distant room, she could hear the radio playing.

The song being played on the radio was being sung by Johnny Cash.

It was that old song The Devil Went Down To Georgia.

Her Majesty had always loved Johnny Cash’s music.

The Devil went down to Georgia.

Her Majesty gazed in the distance to the globe of the world by her bedroom window.

Coincidentally her eye fell on Georgia on the globe of the world- the spot seemed to be directly in her gaze.

Although it was not the Georgia of America’s Deep South

It was the Eastern European country of Georgia.

The country that Vladimir Putin had invaded in August 2008 and had seized the Georgian territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

. . .

Russian Vampiress Svetlana Kireeva of the FSB stood inside the mausoleum of Lenin’s Tomb and gazed at the body of Lenin- founder of Soviet Russia and the Soviet Union- as he lay behind his glass enclosure.

Today was Lenin’s 144th birthday.

It was also Earth Day.

The world’s very first Earth Day had been April 22nd 1970- which had been Lenin’s 100th birthday.

The date had been selected by Communists who had infiltrated the then emerging environmental movement in the U.S.

The KGB and its agents hoped to seize control of the burgeoning environmental movement and use it to bring about the rapid industrial decline of the U.S. and the Western world.

In the meantime, heavy Soviet industry would continue to rape and pillage the sacred earth of Mother Russia in order to bring about the Soviet Workers’ Paradise on Earth while they hoped the environmental movement in the West would lead to the rapid industrial and technological decline of the U.S. , Great Britain and Western Europe.

And so Communist infiltrators in the U.S. environmental movement had deliberately chosen the date of Lenin’s 100th birthday- April 22nd 1970- as the world’s very first Earth Day.

And none of the non-Communist members of the environmental movement had ever bothered asking why that particular date had been chosen for Earth Day.

As Lenin himself had shrewdly and astutely noted, there would be no shortage of “useful idiots” for the Communist cause in the West.

And so here on this 44th Earth Day, Svetlana Kireeva stood inside Lenin’s tomb and made a personal vow to restore the Empire that Lenin and Stalin had built.

This April 22nd 2014.

Lenin’s 144th birthday.

144.

12 x 12.

12.

Like the 12 Tribes of Israel.

144,000.

144,000 witnesses in the Book of Revelation.

12,000 from each of the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Israel.

Were Israel and Russia connected somehow? she wondered.

Suddenly to her horror, Lenin’s eyes opened on his corpse behind the glass enclosure and Lenin’s corpse spoke these words,

“The time is now.”

Syrian Presidential Election Announced

April 21, 2014 at 7:12 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, News, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Syrian Presidential Election Announced

British Prime Minister David Cameron sat wondering what the Hell on earth had happened to the parliamentary envoy he had sent to Russia last week- Welsh werewolf British Labour MP Magog Rhys Petley (although Cameron didn’t know that the man was a werewolf) who had been sent over to Moscow for secret diplomatic talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the Ukraine crisis.

The man Magog had just vanished on the streets of Moscow a week ago and hadn’t been seen since.

. . .

It was announced at a meeting of the Syrian Parliament in Damascus that a Presidential election in Syria would be held on June 3rd of this year.

As the announcement was made, the Syro-Phoenician Vampiress Astarte sat in Parliament and listened.

She immediately checked the messages on her smart phone and noticed that the U.S. was already condemning the election as a “parody of democracy”.

She smiled.

The Russian government had already been saying the same thing for weeks about the planned Ukrainian Presidential election set for May 25th of this year.

She licked her lips and her vampiric fangs delicately and exquisitely.

All was going according to plan.

. . .

New Orleans Vampiress Angelique Dumont was in her exclusive London apartment.

The Vampiress who was a songstress and an actress now made her career performing live on stage in theatrical productions and musicals in the theatre district of West London.

She held in her hand a message delivered by courier that was from a Park Avenue billionaire in New York City.

The billionaire had offered her $500,000 U. S. if she would sing for him at a private recital for him and a group of friends in his Park Avenue penthouse apartment next week.

Despite the high fee he was offering, she felt an extreme queasiness and unease at accepting.

In A Cave In Geneva

April 20, 2014 at 6:17 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, History, Horror, Mystery/horror, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

In A Cave In Geneva

The man who had accepted the mysterious figure’s offer on the top of Mount Everest and had then flown around the world in a supersonic jet (owned by a Park Avenue New York City billionaire) after having done so was now standing in a cave in Geneva Switzerland.

He was tied to ropes and was about to descend down a hole to a very deep pit in the bottom of the cave.

Some said the pit was bottomless and went deep down to the very bowels of the Earth itself.

The man with his arms outstretched proceeded to descend.

“Say, did anyone here know that this particular Easter Sunday is Hitler’s 125th birthday?” Somebody in the man’s party asked.

“Quiet you fool,” another man spoke in a very commanding and authoritative voice.

The man with the commanding and authoritative voice was dressed in a red robe with a red hood.

He resembled a medieval monk but was wearing an insignia on the front of his robe that no known monastic order of the Middle Ages wore.

The man dressed as a monk then spoke in ancient Hebrew and Ancient Greek and ancient Latin as the man in the ropes hovered over the bottomless pit.

At that moment, a spectral entity rose up out of the bottomless pit and entered the man’s body.

To some observers at the top, it looked like the entity resembled the figure depicted by classical Hindu statues of Shiva the Destroyer.

To others, the entity resembled the figure depicted by classical statues of the ancient Greco-Roman god Apollo.

The Friday The World Turned Black

April 18, 2014 at 7:47 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, History, News, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The Friday The World Turned Black

It was Maundy Thursday evening on Park Avenue in New York City as the mysterious billionaire behind the black curtains of his apartment enjoyed a lone supper of a boar’s head and roast pork and lobster and shellfish and sipped champagne from a gold chalice.
He was on a speaker phone in a conference call with 12 of his associates in important national capitals around the world.

. . .

At the exact same moment as the Park Avenue billionaire broke off a piece of pork with his bare hands and sampled it and sipped from the cup of champagne, a mysterious figure stood on the very top of Mount Everest and spoke to a man who also stood on the top.

“Do you see all these nations of the world from up here?” The mysterious figure asked the man, “I will give you them all if you worship me.”

“I see nothing but a lot of clouds at so great a height,” the man replied.

The figure waved his hands and all the nations of the world appeared to the man in a vision.

“See them now?” The figure asked, “I WILL give you them all if you worship me.”

“All right,” the man replied.

As soon as the man spoke those words, an avalanche occurred on Everest.

The avalanche immediately buried and killed 12 Sherpa guides.

. . .

It was Good Friday afternoon at 3:00 PM local time as the Park Avenue billionaire’s supersonic jet flew with great speed above the Andes right over the Chilean-Argentinian border.

On board the jet was the man who had accepted the offer from the mysterious figure atop Everest.

The man was in the plane’s washroom urinating and talking to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on his mobile phone right as the plane flew above the statue of Christ of the Andes.

The statue of Christ of the Andes had been unveiled on March 13th 1904.

109 years later on March 13th 2013, an Argentinian Jorge Mario Bergoglio would be elected Pope and take the name Francis.

. . .

The Park Avenue billionaire was listening to the radio.

Pro-Russian militias were not leaving government buildings in eastern Ukraine- one of the conditions in yesterday’s accord in Geneva between the U.S. , the EU and Russia.

Meanwhile Poland’s Defence Minister Tomasz Siemoniak announced that U.S. ground forces would soon be deployed in Poland in response to the Ukraine crisis.

The Park Avenue billionaire smiled as he sipped his glass of sherry.

All was going according to plan.
