May 28th, 2031, Central Committee Móng Cái, one of the wealthiest cities in Vietnam, is due for a large upgrade. At least, that is what the Central Committee believes. The Central Committee has proposed to turn Móng Cái on the border with China, into a special economic city. The end goal is that Móng Cái can be turned into the pride of Vietnam. Currently with a population of around 350,000 residents, the Móng Cái Smart City Project has proposed to prepare this new special, and modern, economic smart city to take on in excess of 1,000,000 new residents at the time of its completion. The proposed total for the project will be:150Bn This would make the Móng Cái Smart City, the largest megaproject ever devised in South East Asia. The Móng Cái Smart City project has been proposed to host its own Stock Exchange with districts specifically for Universities, Commercial Businesses, Residential, Office Space, Tourism, and of course the Port Authority. The main focus of this city would be to create industry and economic activity along the Chinese border, specifically for tourism and luxury, similar to that of Hong Kong or Macau. However, since the city is considered a split city between Dongxing in China and Móng Cái in Vietnam, that the project be completed in full two encompass both cities. The proposed changes and breakdown is as follows:
Development of Modern Apartment Housing
Commercial District and Technology Park
Móng Cái Port Authority (SEA Trading Hub)
Móng Cái Metropolitan Transportation System (Buses and Subways)
White Sand Beach Development
Total: 150 Bn Móng Cái Commercial District and Technology Park The Commercial District and Technology Park is proposed to house the new stock exchange, and consist of businesses, and research institutes. Also it will consist of malls and shopping centers. This area is supposed to be a sanctuary for businesses and research to be conducted, as well as a tax haven. Since Móng Cái Smart City will be a special economic city, it will abide by special laws created within the city. However, it is expected that a lot of wealth and businesses will be brought into the commercial district via the new Móng Cái Port Authority. Móng Cái Port Authority The Móng Cái Port Authority is expected to become a large trading hub for all of SEA, as a considerable amount of trade moves through the South China Sea, and through ASEAN participating members. Due to the port's close proximity to China, it is expected to be an ideal place for goods to be shipped into and out of with relative ease, but bear less cost on the companies to operate there, and a geographical advantage over other ports in the South China Sea. The port will also be within a desirable proximity to the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hainan, and Hong Kong, all very desirable destinations for trade and commerce. The Central Committee hopes that Móng Cái can join the ranks of the elite Asian economic cities. Móng Cái Metropolitan Transportation System It has been proposed for a new public transit system to service Móng Cái, including public buses, subway and share bike. The entire program will be serviced by a transportation card called Red Star which will provide users a discount on the fees to use the service. The Red Star card is proposed to be affordable and inexpensive to anyone, making the transportation truly affordable. The subway being the most expensive of the fees, and then buses, and finally share bike. The subway is proposed to run on the Tokyo Metro 13000 Model. The subway will be completely electrically powered. The bus system will service electric-powered double-decker Jinghua BK6126S model buses, and also serve an articulated, and short variant, both being one floor. An app is to be created for the Red Star program to use when getting on and off the bus, filling up your card, and provide a map of Móng Cái and tell you how many stops away the next bus is on your selected route. The App will feature typical map services for the city, but with the previously mentioned added feature, and listing which routes have the least people, and the fastest route. All transportation services, except the share bike program will feature air-conditioning and annual Wi-Fi by subscription, to be used during the services. Tourist District Large parts of old-town Móng Cái will be retained in the tourist district, as well as the old markets, but large amounts of amenities for modern tourism must be built up. With the steep budget proposed for this district, the Golden Boulevard will be created. What the Golden Boulevard means, is a long stretch of hotels and casinos right in-front of newly developed beach, will be erected and become the center of tourism for the region. One of the main selling points of the Smart City will be gambling and relaxation. Several casinos have already been proposed, and the invitation to foreign casino companies such as MGM and Bvlgari will be extended. In fact, it is proposed upon completion that 41% of the revenue from the city will be gambling and tourism efforts. The following casinos have been proposed:
The Jade Bay
The Sand Castle
Diamonds of Mekong
Palace of the Sun (A North-Korean Themed Casino) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea will be invited to take management, and aid with designing
Sea of Silk
Grand Ba Dinh Casino
Rostov-on-Nam (Russian Language Only Casino)
And many more invitations to private companies! University District The University District has a main goal of pulling large academic weight to the city, in order to feed employment to firms operating in the city, and to transfer a large amount of intellectual capital from Hanoi to Móng Cái. The University District will consist strictly of universities, except for a large shopping mall and a series of bars and clubs, catering to the universities. The following universities will maintain a campus in Móng Cái:
Vietnam National Univeristy
Can Tho University
Hanoi University of Science and Technology
National Economics University
An Giang University
Ho Chi Minh City University of Transportation
Vietnam Aviation Academy
Institute for International Relations
The following universities will be created in Móng Cái: (Educational Expense)
Thanh University (Proposed to be the top and most prestigious university in Vietnam)
Lieu Trong University of Military Science
National University of Science and Technology (Proposed to be the leading university for STEM studies in Vietnam)
Vietnam Foreign Language Studies University
A number of foreign universities will also be invited to set up a campus in Móng Cái
After my last post about Regulus and bringing up the Nov 14th date spoken about in the Trackdown - End of the World Episode again, I started doing some more digging. It's important you read that post before you can understand this one. You can find it here. The name of the asteroid that occulted the star Regulus for 14 seconds on March 20, 2014 was called 163 Erigone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/163_Erigone
163 Erigone is an asteroid from the asteroid belt and the namesake of the Erigone family of asteroids that share similar orbital elements and properties. It was discovered by French astronomer Henri Joseph Perrotin on April 26, 1876, and named after one of the two Erigones in Greek mythology. Erigone is a relatively large and dark asteroid with an estimated size of 73 km. Based upon its spectrum, it is classified as a C-type asteroid, which indicates that it probably has a carbonaceous composition. 2014 occultation of Regulus In the early morning hours of March 20, 2014, Erigone occulted the first-magnitude star Regulus as first predicted by A. Vitagliano in 2004. This would have been a rare case of an occultation of a very bright star visible from a highly populated area, since the shadow path moved across New York state and Ontario, including all five boroughs of New York City. Observers in the shadow path would have seen the star wink out for as long as 14 seconds. However, heavy clouds and rain blocked the view for most if not all people on the shadow path. The website of the International Occultation Timing Association does not list any successful observations at all. Two single chord Asteroid Occultation events have been observed, in 2013 and 2014
Icarius was cordial towards Dionysus, who gave his shepherds wine. They became intoxicated and killed Icarius, thinking he had poisoned them. His daughter, Erigone, and her dog, Maera, found his body. Erigone hanged herself over her father's grave. Dionysus was angry and punished Athens by making all of the city's maidens commit suicide in the same way. Erigone was placed in the stars as the constellation Virgo. According to Ovid, Dionysus "deceived Erigone with false grapes", that is, assumed the shape of a grape cluster to approach and seduce her.
Dionysus was the god of winemaking. He was responsible for the growth of the vines.
John 15 "I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful."
Erigone would have been slain by Orestes along with her brother Aletes if not for the intervention of Artemis, who rescued her and made her a priestess in Attica. In some stories, she hangs herself after the child is born, though this may be a confusion with Erigone, daughter of Icarius. Also, after Hermione died, she is said to have married Orestes and gave birth to Penthilus. Or it is said she sued Orestes to murder of her parents.
Orestes murdered his own mother then went crazy. Satan/Yahweh have other gods related to them where they are rejected by their mothers or don't have one, which is why they are narcissists who hate women and why we he kicks Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (Mother Nature) and curses women to be subservient to men (read more about this idea here). Revelation speaks of the Red Dragon trying to kill a newborn baby and the woman who birthed him. She then goes somewhere in the wilderness, where God held a place for her until its time. God in this story apparently, is Artemis or Diana. She's not dead, she's just hiding until Orestes (humanity) attones for what he did. This stuff correlates to so much more, I might have to make another post just about this. I came across this date (11/14) towards the beginning of my journey and I never went back looking into it because it felt like a dead end besides a couple of VERY key significances. Nov 14th is both the day the "Great Comet" is discovered in 1680 and the day that Einstein presented his Quantum Theory of Light in 1908. Looking at this list now, I see WAY more correlations with this to the point it's getting ridiculous. And it seems this date is a sort of pendulum point in time because we have instances of people winning their freedoms, overtaking governments and rulers being killed and we have instances of enslavement, attacks and new kings getting crowned. I wonder which way Earth is going to go in this timeline. Also important to note 11/14 = 1 + 4 = 5 = 11/5 = 1 + 1 + 5 = 7 "Remember, Remember the 5th of November"

This seems to imply we'll be at union with both the masculine and the feminine. But all of these events seem to be polar opposites so who knows. It almost seems like women are going to take over and we're trading places. Like Dumuzid and Inanna. If this is the coming of the True Antichrist, then it won't be good and balance will not be achieved through them.

1964 "Fade Out-Fade In" closes at Mark Hellinger NYC after 199 performances
The show spoofs some of the great film stars of the era, such as Shirley Temple and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, and Governor is based on MGM honcho Louis B. Mayer, known for his roving eye for pretty starlets and deep-seated nepotism.
1964 "Folies Bergere" closes at Broadway Theater NYC after 191 performances 1964 "Oliver!" closes at Imperial Theater NYC after 774 performances
A workhouse in Dunstable, England is visited by the wealthy governors who fund it. While a sumptuous banquet is held for them, the barefoot orphan boys who work there are being served their daily gruel. They dream of enjoying the same "Food, Glorious Food" as their masters. While eating, some boys draw straws to see who will ask for more to eat, and the job falls to a boy named Oliver Twist. He goes up to Bumble and Widow Corney, who run the workhouse and serve the gruel, and asks for more. Enraged, Bumble takes Oliver to the governors to see what to do with him ("Oliver!"). A decision is made to have Oliver sold into service. Bumble parades Oliver through the snow, trying to sell him to the highest bidder ("Boy for Sale"). Oliver is sold to an undertaker named Mr. Sowerberry, who intends to use him as a mourner for children's funeral

This one warrants reading the entire plot as it fits too perfectly. Even ending with the assassination of the main character. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_(1976_film)) Network is a 1976 American satirical film written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet, about a fictional television network, UBS, and its struggle with poor ratings
1981 "Raise!" 11th studio album by Earth, Wind & Fire is released (Billboard Album of the Year 1982) Event of interestEvent of Interest 1987 "La Cage aux Folles" closes at Palace Theater NYC after 1761 performances
La cage aux folles literally means "the cage of mad women". However, folles is also a slang term for effeminate homosexuals (queens).

As ridiculous as this sounds, this might be the most relevant of all. I can't fit it all here, so just go here and read about the plot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Twilight_Saga:_Breaking_Dawn_%E2%80%93_Part_2#Plot Her daughters name literally means "born again". Someone gets told they don't live in the world they think they do. Her child get persecuted and they gather "witnesses" to testify for her. The 2 witnesses in Revelation? The correlations here are crazy. Especially with the idea I've heard that everything man exalts, God hates and vice versa. So Pagan and witches seem to be implying something here.
2016 "Moana" animated Disney film directed by Ron Clements and John Musker with voices by Auli'i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson premieres in Los Angeles
On the Polynesian island of Motunui, the inhabitants worship the goddess Te Fiti, who brought life to the ocean, using a pounamu stone as her heart and the source of her power. Maui, the shapeshifting demigod and master of sailing, steals the heart to give humanity the power of creation. However, Te Fiti disintegrates, and Maui is attacked by Te Kā, a volcanic demon, losing both his magical giant fishhook and the heart to the depths. A millennium later, Moana, daughter of Motunui's chief Tui, is chosen by the ocean to return the heart to Te Fiti. However, Tui arrives and takes Moana away, causing her to lose the heart.

2002 The United States House of Representatives votes not to create an independent commission to investigate the September 11 attacks
Now this is VERY interesting. Trump has repeatedly said he would expose 9/11 and I've had this theory for a while that he would use this information to end the investigation and take complete power.
1976 War criminal Pieter Menten captured 1 day after fleeing
He was a Nazi. A Dutch writer was involved in his capture. I'm noticing a lot of references to the Dutch. Apparently they were very complicit in atrocities of Nazi Germany and they had the highest percentage of Jewish deaths in Western Europe, 75% of them died. A lot of Nazi's actually hid out in these areas to avoid capture. The Little Baron Trump books say he changed his name to a Dutch name. Trump himself lied and said his father was Swedish. I think it's pretty obvious what this means.
1666 Samuel Pepys reports on 1st blood transfusion (between dogs)
Almost seems like an illusion to genetic manipulation. The Greeks called the city where they worshiped the Egyptian god of the Underworld Anubis, the "city of the dog". Jesus referred to a Canaanite woman as a dog once. Trump also called Omarosa a "dog". Keeping with my theory that almost 100% of the negative things Trump says about a person are projection, which means he's really talking about himself, this is very interesting. Especially with his love for Black and Gold color schemes on his "Towers" which is very Egyptian. Ramses II also had red hair. Which means he was an Edomite. Ramses II is mentioned specifically on Cleopatra's Needle, one of which is a mile away from the black inverted obelisk that is Trump Tower. Ramses II sounds an AWFUL lot like Trump. Loved to build monuments to himself and over exaggerated his accomplishments. He is very revered though and thought of as a great Pharaoh, according to what was written about him at least.

1967 The Congress of Colombia in commemoration of the 150 years of the death of Policarpa Salavarrieta, declares this day as "Day of the Colombian Woman"

2007 the last direct-current distribution by Con Edison was shut down.
Is this indicating the power will be cut off or is it a metaphor for humanity itself? Children's Day is celebrated on the 14th of November in India as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on November 14, 1889. Jawaharlal Nehru, who was fondly called Chacha Nehru or simply Chachaji, was known for his love for children. On this day, chocolates and gifts are often distributed among children, while schools organize different events such as debates, and music and dance performances. It is also a common practice to distribute gifts like clothes, toys and books to orphan children on this day.
