Italy's lost language? They gave Rome the alphabet, but we hardly know them. Here's how we pieced together the extinct language of an early Italian civilization.

~ Briefly ~

A strange Egyptian mummy was found in the 1800s. Its bandages were filled with the letters of a book - not an Egyptian book, but a book written in an archaic Italian language known to Romans as "Etruscan". The book held a deeper mystery beyond the question of its provenance: it couldn't be read, not because the text was undeciphered but because the language was unknown.

Throughout the video we'll discover what we can (and can't) say about Etruscan sounds and words. You'll glimpse bits of Etruscan consonants, vowels, grammar, syllables, accentuation and one major change in the language's history. Along the way, I'll share tales of the hopes and frustrations of the scholars who worked through these discoveries. Finally, you'll hear the reconstructed pronunciation of an Etruscan phrase, along with a likely translation, before concluding we're still far from understanding this captivating tongue.

Commander…., The Teacher states that we are still “reliving the books” of the Bible be it old and new testament……..., so does this “information” also apply to the Koran…….., the TALMUD……., and the many other books from the Hindu Bible to the “Bibles” of the Egyptians to the Greeks……, and all the rest??? You are {a very perceptive} +=+ person my young man “be you” male….., or female for we are at WAR with [Incubus and Succubus] / * \ whom look just as we the people of all our lands…., and even though words like Vampire and Werewolves from “Warlocks” too Witches…., there does not seem to be these WORDS in our “Books of Knowledge” be it the Holy Bible to the Holy Koran??? Now..., I can not speak on “The Bibles” of the Hindu.., or the Buddhist or the Zoroaster., but me thinks the Iliad and the Odyssey by HOMER and “other such works” are where these Words came into existence from Medusa to them “flying” Harpies!!!! Moreover, since the Teacher says Angels are Demons and Demons are Angels and that “God and Satan” murdered a mans family to test his faith when that man did no evil?..?, what does this say of the “Ink on Paper” G.O.D. we are presented by the ROMAN Catholics to your local Town Preacher in them Baptist to Lutheran to “Methodist” Churches…., and What of the “Book of Mormon” or these Jehovah Witness??? Are you to tell me that we EMPLOYEES that is just another word for SLAVE under THE RULE OF LAW means “we should allow” our SLAVES The Government to do as it wishes with OUR TAXES that is their “Slave Pay” from the Congress to the Senate from the Supreme Court to our “Local Courts” from the Prison Guards whom Beat Jesus and “Spat in his face” to these FREE MASON C.O.P.S. whom beat we their EMPLOYERS??? I must say the Books of Holy Men and “Wombmen” never said A SLAVE had more rights then its MASTER?????????, and since these “Religions” LIVE off our Payment called Tithing then is not even The Pope of the Vatican our “EMPLOYEE” and OUR SLAVE and HE has “not one right” [{**}] to speak or pretend to be God or “Christ” in the Flesh as he lives in a MALE only world where the FEMALE was wrote to be REJECTED as “Sacred” in all these Books of Religions??? Do not “we all” come from the WOMB be we male or female?????, and are not “we male” of the female??? Yes….., the Teacher “is correct” that we are reliving the Days of Noah, and Sodom and Gomorrah, and The Book of “EXODUS” to the Book of REVELATION……, as we have all been repeating the IRON AGE for “whom knows” how long??? Yet, even the IRON Age was supposed to “transition” back to the GOLDEN AGE, and then the Silver Age, and then the Bronze Age, and then the Heroic Age……., but these FREE MASON Lodges and their INTERNATIONALIST [COVID 19] Virus have trapped us in their “Oraborus Curse” of De-Ja-Vu where we keep “repeating” the IRON AGE and all gets reset to 1850 C.E. by the EDISON Machine of “Forced Technology” and PROJECT BLUE BEAM!!!! Therefore, to put a STOP to {all this madness} [{*}] while we cut wires to them 5G and all CIA to “U.S. Troops” whom are nothing more then “U.N. Troops” wearing the U.S. FLAG UNIFORMS and “COSTUMES” of Murderers, Rapist, Abusers known as WAR HERO…, and to be certain let the AIR “out of all” FREE MASON Cars, and Jets, and “Planes” and Black Hawks.., and fly Mini-DRONES into “Troop Movement” Jumbo Jets…. For what we fight are “The Chaldeans” from HABAKKUK “Verse 6” Chapter 1 of the Old States man…… The Commander~

One who claims to be able to foretell events or predict the future; a seer.

Word History: The truth is not always soothing, but our verb soothe is related to soothsayer, the word for one who tells the truth, especially beforehand. The archaic adjective and noun sooth, "true, truth," comes from the Old English adjective and noun sōth with the same meanings. The Old English form derives from Germanic *santh-az, "true," which comes from Indo-European *sont-, one of the participles from the Indo-European root -es-, "to be": the truth is that which is. Old English also formed a verb from sōth, namely sōthian, "to confirm to be true." This is the ancestor of soothe; its meaning changed from "to concur to be true, say 'yes' to" to "humor by concurring, placate." Doing the latter on occasion requires something less than the truth.
