The Open Yada Yada Whatever Kicks Yer Bippy Thread

Okay, since amia my, the last thread has grown to so many comments, I thought a fresh thread would be the ticket. You can’t pay at the courthouse. There is no courthouse, just courting the lovely lady of truth and consequences. 

So Mr Flash, Veri, keep on keeping on…I will be here with stuff too, as I unmangle my jellified brain from too many loud screaches from the parrot on my shoulder…sheeeze! !

  1. I knew someone on the Akasha Record lable…but that may have been in a future life past tense.
    If you can get past tense, life is a lot more relaxing. It relieves that old rigormortis with vim an vinegar. Or vile and verisimilitude – don’t recall which witch was the evil one in Oz…mebee t’was all ovum, or all over town…er all over time…like a stoned drummer.

    Thanks for being first to post Veri – very good of you. If I’m quippy, snot the subject matter, it is just my mood. Limathy Teary ‘n’all that.

  2. Totally awesome video, it presents the Buddhabrot of the last thread pretty much as it is seen felt and experienced by happy critters. This is a great way to start the next cycle. Furthur!

    • The Lady definitely got on the bus. Inner Worlds Outer Worlds is 4 parts and can be viewed via Youtube. Here’s another one that reinforces what’s been presented in the Worlds Series

      • Unfortunately I can’t watch something of this length. But I have read a lot of articles on the “Electric Universe” and the concept makes a lot of sense to me.

  3. I don’t if this will post or not. This is the first record I ever made. Back in 1967…
    The Oracle; ‘DON’T SAY NO’.

    \\][//

  4. “Don’t Say No” has recently appeared on Rhino’s 4 CD Set “Where The Action Is – 1965-1968 Los Angeles Nuggets” (2009)

    The flip side was penned by Terry Green, the lead guitar player. Curt Boetcher and Keith Olson produced it.
    Keith was in THE MUSIC MACHINE as bass player at the time. He “discovered” our band THE ORACLE in Baton Rouge when we opened for the Machine.

    We opened our set with ‘Paperback Writer’ [Beatles of course]…and the whole group of the Machine filed out from the back to watch…in amazement, as they later told us.

    There were five of us in the Oracle. Terry on lead guitar, Ronnie Hamilton on rhythm guitar, Perry Gaspard on keyboards, Joey [?] on bass and Kenny [?] on drums. I was the lead singer, but all of us could sing, and our harmonies were tight.

    If you go to the YouTube page this vidyoyo is from, you will see how little is remembered. The commentators there are wondering if Curt B was singing the song, if it was a “made up group”…Lol
    No we were for real, it was a good band. You really can’t hear what we were really like by these two songs though. We had a lot more edge…what you do hear on these cuts is Boetcher’s distinctive production sound. They call it “Sunshine Pop” now – we used to call it “BubbleGum”…

    The Oracle broke up when Terry went on a Robatusen cough medicine binge…just before we got a call from Dick Clark Tours to go on tour…so Terry started this band, and Terry finished it off.

    I have no idea where any of those guys are anymore. Curt B died in 87, and Keith is a big shot in the music industry now.

    Maybe I’ll tell you about Sherry Olson in another comment…huh, maybe not…Lol

    I can’t play or download this one…I think it’s an mp3…I have a copy of the vinyl 45, but haven’t had a turntable in decades.

    Kim Fowley was an animal…known for his lechery – a crazy guy…a “short order cook” producer. But it was fun doing the recording. Sandy Nelson played drums on this, and Mars Bonfire was on guitar.

    • Will, you were THERE in the sixties drama Yes your sound is from a certain genre you call sunshine pop, kind of like the Association and some other bands I could name if my memory was not blown of those radio days. You got sitar, got the akasha swirling through it at the end too with that celestial wind effect.
      I bet when Nancy Reagan heard this song she came up with ‘just say no’ because the lyrics were engrained in her head, what she could remember of it,

        That is interesting…I have a recording of Nancy saying that, that I have used in a couple of my pieces…that would be a full circle of synchronicity — wooden tent?

        Yea, I noticed there was a vidyo in the choice-tiles by your tabla player from the last thread.

        Curt Boetcher produced the Association’s first album — so the sound is simulator for that reason.

    Fallujah: US Marines – Further Allegations of War Crimes Surface

    By Felicity Arbuthnot — Global Research, January 24, 2014

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/fallujah-us-marines-further-allegations-of-war-crimes-surface/5366163

    “Fallujah, now under attack from US installed tyrant Nuri al Maliki’s sectarian militia armed with US supplied weapons, with the US also: “ … looking to provide additional shipments of Hellfire missiles to Iraq … as well as ten Scan Eagle drones and forty eight Raven drones” (Guardian, 7th January 2014) now, another previously unreported US war crime of the myriad heaped on the city in 2004, also returns to haunt them.

    The Americans invaded, chillingly: “house to house, room to room”, raining death and destruction on the proud, ancient “City of Mosques.”

    One correspondent wrote: “There has been nothing like the attack on Fallujah since the Nazi invasion and occupation of much of the European continent – the shelling and bombing of Warsaw in September 1939, the terror bombing of Rotterdam in May 1940.”

    Further: “ …the ‘battle for Fallujah’ was entirely one-sided. US military and technical superiority over the Iraqi resistance (was) as great, if not greater, than the American army’s advantage over their Indian opponents in the 1870s and 1880s.”(1)

    Seventy percent of houses and shops were reported destroyed, with those still standing damaged. Iraqi doctor, Ali Fadhil, described a city: “ … completely devastated, destruction everywhere. It looked like a city of ghosts. Falluja used to be a modern city; now there was nothing. We spent the day going through the rubble that had been the centre of the city; I didn’t see a single building that was functioning.”(City of Ghosts, The Guardian, January 11, 2005.)”

    \\][//

    • . Fallujah was even worse than what Felicity tells in this article. I give her credit though for having written this previous article about Roger Helbig-
      http://www.theecologist.org/blogs_and_comments/commentators/other_comments/269012/depleted_uranium_an_untold_story.html
      This should give you an idea of how contentious is the issue of US nuclear war with depleted uranium. The US is a signatory of the Geneva Convention on Poison Gas Weapons.
      The connection with Helbig and Arbuthnot’s DU story is that Operation Phantom Fury in November 2004 was a calculated radioactive poison gas attack on a civilian population penned for slaughter in a city the size of Cinncinnati. The PTB waited for the Presidential selection to complete in which blackbox voting flipped votes in Ohio the pivotal state from Kerry to Bush. Exit polls were at variance with the official count. Kerry despite having a residual funding of forty million dollars refused to contest the rigged vote. Kerry figured therefore at least circumstantially in the gas attack on Fallujah that November which commenced as Kerry conceded the election. Kerry’s heritage is said to be not Irish but jewish and his real family name to be Kohn. His great grandfather shot himself in NYC.

      http://judaism.about.com/od/jewishgenealogy/a/jewpas_kerry.htm

      Kerry’s father appointed Conant to the radioactive gas committee of the Manhattan Project. Conant wrote the notorious Groves Memo in 1943 which was declassified in the 70’s. The memo lays out how to destroy earth with ‘permanent terrain contamination’ from uranium smoke. U238 has a half life of 4.5 billion years. DU warfare is ‘scorched earth’ at 4.5-8.0 MeV for eternity, the most damaging form of radiation, alpha particles that enter people through inhalation exposure.
      Before the attack on Fallujah, US forces cordoned the city and allowed women to escape but not any males of teenage to older, who were the intended victims and targets of the planned bombardment with depleted uranium weapons. The US unveiled a new smaller 500 pound DU bunker buster the GB38 at Fallujah. Almost all the weapons and ammunition used in the attack were of radioactive uranium metal alloys.
      Uranium metal has an extremely low ignition temperature and is called pyrophoric meaning once ignited it maintains burning. DU munitions ignite right out of the gun barrels from the explosive propellants’ hot shockwave and streak to targets appearing like rays from a ray gun. The ignition temperature of less than 400 degrees F may be low but the combustion temperature once ignited is right up to the boiling point of uranium, 7000 degrees F. As uranium boils it gives off gas; liquid uranium turns to vapor or ceramic metal fumes of as small as .1 micron-nanoparticles.
      High temp combustion of uranium metal alloys resulted at the Highway of Death in ‘crispy critters’, the charred corpses found in vehicles attacked with 30 mm DU bullets fired by A10 Warthogs. GE reportedly built the Avenger cannon in the A10s, a gatling gun that disperses a ton or more of US nuclear waste into the environment in less than a minute. GE also designed and partially built Fukushima Daiichi.
      An indie US film crew stayed on in Fallujah during Phantom Fury. They took footage of how the US tank shells pierced an entire city block of reinforced concrete buildings. These shells contain a sold uranium rod that flies at supersonic speeds carrying high kinetic energy being nearly twice the density of lead. The entire city was bombed with DU bunker busters and shot up with tank rounds. US snipers stationed themselves on roofs overlooking hospitals and shot wounded civilians as they were unloaded to the ERs. Clusterbombs also contain DU pellets that ignite in the explosion shock wave. The indie film crew in Fallujah was waylaid back in the US by agents who stole their footage, but the producers managed to obtain some more footage from Iraqis. Their film- “Caught in the Crossfire”
      In the aftermath of the battle of Fallujah, childhood leukemia incidence increased 37 times. There were widespread birth defects and the full spectrum of Gulf War Syndrome. The city still is in ruins. We need to remember it was Churchill who said eight decades previously the ‘unruly tribes of Fallujah’ must be gas attacked.
      We have some of the most heinous and satanic criminals ever to stalk the earth right there in US officialdom, maneuvered by their puppetmasters, the ultimate criminal nation within nations. If we ever get to tribunals a la Ruanda, the billionaire boyz with the DU are going to face the music for crimes that are almost unimaginable.
      The same DU weapons such as missiles and flechettes is now being readied to again mutilate the civilian population. These same weapons were also put in the hands of the Syrian ‘rebels’ so favored by Mr. Kohn or whatever his name is.
      It’s groovy to live in the now, but the real world outside our remaining bubble is going to hell fast. Countless Americans are now also afflicted with Gulf War Syndrome. Dr. Major Doug Rokke continues to be harassed and slandered.. Dr. Durakovic was driven out of the Pentagon and harassed. Ask any DU activist for their harassment stories. At least a dozen US military training facilities are now either Superfund sites or under NRC license as uncleanable nuclear waste dumps because of the DU munitions fired there that aerosolized and contaminated everything with fine poison dust. Surrounding communities often report elevated cancers. Most Americans have no idea what they did as a nation in Fallujah and how the pigeons have come home to roost with an epidemic of cancer since 1945.
      If there is anything that can be done to stop the ghouls running the US it needs to be done. I wish I could say I see progress but there is none. Justice is long overdue.
      One last note if you read Arbuthnot’s article on Helbig you will see the court case cited it was alleged he put up Israeli flags on windows. Israel was the first official user of US DU weapons in 1973, long before Gulf War 1. Highway of Death under Barry McCaffrey was an attack on the retreating Iraqi columns of motor vehicles that occured on the Day of Purim 1991. Bush’s Shock and Awe was similarly planned to occur on the Day of Purim, 2003. Bush the reptile was evilly grinning and saying “Today’s the Day”. Last Purim some Israelis dressed up as the Twin Towers.
      Whether Americans can connect the dots in time to figure out who controls them, their money, and entire system and way of life is the big question. Irving Fisher could be a clue.
      Let’s not forget it was Einstein and Tzeilard who wrote the letter that Sachs delivered to FDR in 1939 urging him to begin production of radioactive WMD. DU is a covert WMD hidden as a conventional munition but its radioactive gas nature is not conventional, it’s nuclear war on humanity everywhere.
      Bollyn just was on with O’keefe talking about the falseflag event on 9/11. Bollyn was asked about the jumpers from the Twin Towers. He said they were jumping because the thermite cutter charges burning into the four inch thick steel box beams were so hot the people up there literally could no longer hold out on the upper floors waiting for rescue. So the hellfires are striking America too, only the sheep don’t even realize what has been happening to them. For those who missed Bollyn with O’keefe last week-

      • Obviously when I say “anything that can be done needs to be done” I am not talking about the same tactics and mentality as the criminals. What we need is a restoration of the rule of law that proscribes poison gas warfare. The US is the greatest perpetrator today. Even a tribunal on all the laws being broken with DU warfare would remove the perpetrators and give the world a break from the radiation overburnden that is mutating humanity and causing so much sickness and suffering..

  9. Peter Chiarelli, who had just finished his term as the Army’s vice chief of staff, visited Peter Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks headquarters.

    “Rome had its gladiators. The Aztecs had their epic human sacrifices. But in all the annals of bloody spectacle, nothing has ever drawn a crowd like America’s biggest annual event: The Super Bowl.

    In 2011, 111 million people watched the Super Bowl, making it the most-viewed television program in US history.

    American football, unlike European football, is a violent, militaristic game. The gist: Two teams of eleven muscular men in plastic armor pummel each other into oblivion as they march up and down the field capturing territory while trying to penetrate each others’ “end zone.”

    The game rose with the military-industrial society it represents. American football surpassed the gentler sport of baseball as America’s national pastime during the post-World War II years of US imperial expansion.

    Normally, the Super Bowl – with its ritual militarized violence and crass, tasteless, often downright perverse advertisements – represents American culture at its worst. But this year’s Super Bowl, scheduled for February 2nd, will have one redeeming feature: It will put the national spotlight on the rise of the 9/11 truth movement.

    The Seattle Seahawks, who will be playing the Denver Broncos for the championship, are coached by a 9/11 truther, Pete Carroll. This fact has already begun to astonish the middlebrow world of mainstream American football audiences.

    The sports blogosphere is already spilling over with outraged headlines:

    “Is Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll a 9/11 Truther?”

    “Report: Pete Carroll May Be 9/11 Truther”

    “Pete Carroll seeks truth about 9/11 from four-star general”

    “Pete Carroll, 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist”

    What did Pete Carroll do to achieve such notoriety?

    Last spring, Carroll grilled four-star general, Peter Chiarelli – who had just retired as the US Army’s Vice Chief of Staff – about whether 9/11 was an inside job. Carroll expressed skepticism about whether an airliner really hit the Pentagon, and apparently also remarked on the obvious controlled demolition of World Trade Center Building 7, and the only slightly less-obvious explosive demolitions of the Twin Towers: “Every 9/11 conspiracy theory you can think of, Pete asked about,” said Riki Ellison, an ex-football player turned military advocate who was present at the meeting.

    Gen. Chiarelli was understandably annoyed by Carroll’s questions about 9/11. Obviously the general could not publicly deviate from the official story of 9/11 without endangering his career – and perhaps his life. So Carroll was basically forcing Chiarelli to lie. By confronting Chiarelli about the all-too-obvious 9/11 inside job – the biggest barrel of political dynamite in US history – Pete Carroll became an honorary member of We Are Change, an activist group that specializes in guerrilla video “interviews” with suspected 9/11 cover-up criminals and traitors.

    “Rock and Roll is the devil’s music.. and no one can convince me otherwise.” ~David Bowie
    . . . . . . . .
    Yea, well, that’s only if you “believe in” the devil. The devil, “Satan” is bullshit. Man is the only ‘devil’ in this universe that I know of. He invented the devil as an excuse for his own evil ways.
    It is believing in something that gives it power over you.

    This is one of those arguments that JG the Nurse Rached of COTO and I had, that sent her into hysteria, and her despotic acts. I wouldn’t put too much weight into Bowies quote there either. He has said many controversial things for the sake of the controversy [PR] it would cause.

    I use terms like, “the devil”, “Heaven and Hell”, “Purgatory”… but this is metaphor, it is just language, it doesn’t mean I believe in these things like the herd, which doesn’t have the slightest idea what ANYTHING really means. Only Mr. Natural got that right.

  11. Media Disinformation: What’s Really Going On in Ukraine?

    By Andy Dilks —- Global Research, January 27, 2014

    “The seemingly spontaneous 2004 Ukrainian “Orange Revolution”, sparked by alleged electoral fraud and allegations of voter intimidation, was led largely by a number of grassroots movements tied to political activists and student groups. Many of the groups involved, however, were funded and trained by organizations intimately linked to the US government. The foreign donors of these groups included the US State Department, USAID, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the Open Society Institute and the National Endowment for Democracy.”

    THE TECHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY

    I have heard it said that “technology is neutral”, that it can be used for both good and evil purposes. This is only partly true, and doesn’t consider the totality of the dangers of a technological society. It is the very ignorance of this larger aspect which makes the future an exceedingly dangerous prospect.

    It has already come to the point where the general population have become virtual robots, “TVZombies”, as I have christened them. The futility of trying to reach a dead brain is finally sinking in. “The lights are on, but nobody’s home” is a saying that covers this well. A new form of unconsciousness has developed in the postmodern world, and it is a form of techno-despotism at it’s core.

    • Understood, Will. For me it is good still to follow the alternative news aggregators and commentary to keep ready to dodge the boot coming down. The shitstorm is upon us alot more, and Gladio puts on a psyop about monthly trying to keep the sheep in fear. I do like to learn what people like you and Veri share inspirationally much of it still new to me. Most of the news I could tell would be horrible, some only is inspirational. Without “Controversy of Zion” by Reed I doubt I could form a unified theory of millenial history incl. JC, 9/11, JFK, World War, money, control, and the boot. The trick is trying to overcome all that spiritually to make a viable response to the darkness descending on the happy lamestream somehow keeps a hopefest energized by sporting challenges, celebrities, cheetos, perks and acquisitions.

      I hate to blather or drone on. You know and I know. I feel raw fear sometimes speaking truth on the net especially when I enter a site where I know they are running a psyop against us with an agenda and I am dissenting to the consensus of trolls. It does take time away from music and reading to post.
      Many world class artists starve for lack of audiences and support. People do what they do out of passion often and not much else. Hope? I know your take there too.
      Do you know if Rense is getting more hits or less? Rense is an aggregator not forum.
      I can’t worry too much about C1. Was never into The Vatican Did It, muslims did it, masons did it, etc Was never into mini nukes and Energy weapons at WTC like you encountered at T&S.

        They used to be mostly full with ads for one thing or another. It looks like he is losing sponsors in that way…

        There are ups and downs to everything in life … maybe things will perk up for Jeff. And everyone else. This dark period can’t last forever either. But as far as that goes…all it has to do is wait my life’s last few years out and I won’t know the difference. Unless my hyperspirit is still paying attention to this place after I segue.

  15. “As James Bamford and others have described in exhaustive detail, the NSA was monitoring Al Qaeda’s “communications hub” in Yemen for years prior to 9/11, and purposefully withholding most of that information from the CIA bin Laden unit. But the idea that the NSA just wasn’t able to track bin Laden because of his dastardly technology was a key meme for the NSA to implant in the immediate wake of 9/11. That’s why the Hayden interview was replayed on CBS less than 48 hours after the attacks, and that’s why, as recently declassified documents show, the NSA used 9/11 as an official talking point to justify their illegal surveillance of Americans.

    This meme, of course, was a lie. As NSA insiders have pointed out for years, most if not all of the current illegal collections programs began before 9/11, but the false flag events of September 11th provided the perfect justification for the revelation and expansion of those programs.”

    • It is astounding how the US went down in 1913 and has been turned into animal farm since, but America was the necessary empire to jump on the shoulders of to introduce Albert Pike’s trifecta. We could of course date it back quite a bit previously, but 1913 like 9/11 was a system spasm. Heck that Balfour Declaration soon after, and the World Wars, and the New Freedom program, all that was just a COINCIDENCE (not) and never mind about the USS Liberty and 9/11 unless you want to take a look at writhing maggots in the enchilada.

I see the Manhattan Project exporting nuke technology over Alaska under Lend Lease to the Commie Soviet and how Yale set up Mao, or that there Bolshevik Revolution made in the USA.

  17. What I see is not just one faction of players at the top in this game to control this mind meld of the masses to project our energy into the field manipulating the field. I see Snowden put out there as a set piece on the chess board of the grand game with Greenwald and Omidyar placed to play the game along. This is an old game of old money decrepit to the core that’s being nibbled at the edges to bring it down by new forces and is starting to falter. Natures force is to evolve, we’re witness to a paradigm shift of epic proportions that if you believed in such would be a whole new testament in a bible.
    Of course it’s all shit, that goes without question by those of us that question but that’s the current state of the game as it’s being outed. You should at least listen to him, he believes what he’s saying. It is pertinent to a corrupt to the core system being brought down by external forces not identified. Always subterfuge in the shadows, is it positive or negative? The swings will be determined in the balance but one has to take into consideration, we play large in maintaining the balance. The field speaks to us individually should we be attuned to listen and learn.

  18. I just couldn’t get into the cheesy acting by Snowman and the German ‘journalist’ who is having a hard time keeping a straight face pretending Snowjob is in any danger from TPTB. Major media, even Assange, can interact with Snowden, but the Superpower USI-NSA-CIA which tracked OBL all the way to a plank in the Indian Ocean, could never breach hotel security in Hong Kong, their own eastern banking node to snatch the boy who could bring them all down…Free pass through the world’s airports and safe haven in a strategy of tension. I know- it’s incredible! Don’t get me started on Russia. Robbie Parker is Snowie’s only serious competition for biggest joke in a modern limited hangout or psyop.
    It was reported Snowden was reading Dick Cheney’s autobiography in Hong Kong. Cheney type reactionaries are essential to complete the psyoperation with a sheepdip of the agent, by calling Snowie a vile traitor….still another layer of phony drama in the glass onion. It has been going on for millenia since the neolithic began. It is the state of the undemocratic State. Spying was an essential part of the Mauryan dynasty two millenia ago when the Arthashastra was written. Modern psyops-or rather spy-ops- work off the Arthashastra’s ‘he who is an enemy of my enemy is my friend’. A judas goat poses as an enemy of the state and therefore becomes a friend of the oppressed.. Everyone got their roles? Action! The actors however cannot keep a straight face anymore…they don’t have to, it’s in the bag and Pierre could be the bagman. If I dint laugh I could yawn.

    • Strange game this, us being penny ante pawns in this multi dimensional set that has all the characteristics of a Fibonacci sequence that manipulates our perceptions to maintain the holographic nature of the time space warp we find ourselves in. Consensus is, upon being told it’s manna. If it looks like shit & smells like shit. One has to trust their senses beyond any cajoling, it is shit.

    So what might be the elephant flapping its Ganesh ears behind the snowman’s comedy skit? That could be Israeli backdoor control of US systems. They have it lock stock and barrel. This already prior to 9/11. Bibi was just this week pleading for all global control of the internet out of Israel because of their experience running everything. The intel or spy center is to be Beersheba. You know, for our ‘security’ we hire the people who invented purim..but please keep your eye on the snowman and NSA. A Gladio a month should convince you of the need for strict security measures, the kind the Israelis know best. I’m sure Irving Fisher had the experience at Bank of Israel to handle the Fed too. And Bibi-what alot of experience he has with terror events homing in on them like he was invited.

    “There are two big “waves” set to hit Israeli hi-tech in the coming year, according to Gadi Tirosh, a general manager at venture capital fund Jerusalem Venture Partners. One wave will consist of new companies working in the cybersecurity space, as protecting government, enterprise, and consumers from hacking, online espionage, and cyber-terrorism becomes even more vital than in the past.

    The second wave concerns the place where many of these security-oriented companies will set up shop — Beersheba, a city which will soon host many of the IDF’s advanced technology facilities. As the city grows, multinational giants, like Deutsche Telecom, Ness Technologies, EMC, and others are setting up R&D facilities in the city, drawing from the graduates of Ben Gurion University’s large body of engineering students.”

    Here is what Bibi said Monday in Israhell where chutzpah is par for the coarse-

  22. The Born Sucker Machine

    Ever hear of the Born Sucker Machine? Yea, a guy named Born invented the first mechanized lollipop manufacturing. One of those poetic and coincidental metaphors.

    Samuel Born was a Russian immigrant who invented a lollipop making machine, 1916 … San Francisco gave the ingenious candy maker the keys to the city for inventing the Born Sucker Machine.

  23. The Born Sucker Machine

    How I ended up learning about this was that I was writing an article on the Public Relations Regime, and that was the title I was using for it. I wondered if anyone else had thought of such a title to describe the Bernaysian wonderwelt, so I looked it up on the Internet.

    You can imagine my surprise and the laughter it brought, to find that there is actually a historical Born Sucker Machine…

    That was about eight years ago, and it still makes me chuckle at the weird synchronicity – the idea of born suckers, circuses, marks and fairways. The world is the Circus of Saint Petro, the summit being Mt Blitherton – always hidden by smog.

    The ‘record company’ is operating under the delusion that a “notice” such as this is a legal and binding contract – JUST BECAUSE THEY SAY SO. It is not, I signed no contract and do not agree with their arbitrary “notice”.

    This attitude by corporations such as Virgin Records, is the result of the continuing descent into corporatism/fascism; an unlawful state of affairs as far as the rights of individuals are concerned.

  25. SEERSUCKER SUITS

    Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric, commonly striped or chequered, used to make clothing for spring and summer wear. The word came into English from Hindustani(Urdu and Hindi), and originates from the words “kheer aur shakkar”, literally meaning “rice pudding and sugar”, probably from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth texture of milk and the bumpy texture of sugar. The seersucker suit is the favorite of the queer plantation owners in south Georgia.

    \\][//

    • I keep my dhuni glowing just out beyond the rice pudding and circuses where they hand out suckers to suckers carrying enough debt. A shot of undiluted HighFructoseCornSyrup can set a citizen up for the evening in ways that healthy food can’t. Ask the Blob! Ain’t a saddhu in the world can compete with that.
      Oh well. There will always a bunch of us jokers without tickets kicking back around a campfire out past the elephant camp.
      It’s weird though. While the suckers are seers of the circus, the seers outside are not seersuckers.

      • I always think of the term seer, as in magus tag us conflag us and those with “future eyes”, when I think of ‘seersucker’ — also think of that line from Mick Jagger in that Rolling Stones song {the title of which tripped the light fantastic like Rock Candy Mountain er sumpin}.

        Circus Mondo, is a concept I have had for many years…more like the carnivals in grocery store parking lots I used to ride the hammer at … dingy … like the post apocalypse world we live in now.

  26. Not Even Arthur C Clarke Had This Foresight

    “An article in a 1965 edition of Eagle, a British comic book, predicted the arrival of the Internet with stunning accuracy, including services similar to Skype, Netflix, Kindle and Google years before the very first rudimentary ARPANET links were even established and decades before the first incarnation of the world wide web became available to the general public.

    In summary, the article predicted at least seven fundamental aspects of the Internet, some of which are still only in their early stages today, a full four years before the very first arcane Internet-style communications were even tested, three decades before the Internet became accessible for the general public, and four decades before we saw services like Skype, Netflix and so-called ‘smart’ products.
    – “World knowledge at your fingertips” (the search engine).
    – “Summon any page of any book or newspaper instantly before your eyes” (Kindle).
    – “The computer will control all power supplies to your house” (smart home, Internet of things).
    – “Videophone” (Skype).
    – “Multi-channel TV signal” (Netflix, Internet TVs).
    – Computers/Internet to replace “Tape recorder and record player” (Spotify, iTunes).
    – Network to operate at speed of light (fiber optic).
    All of these were predicted 50 years ago by a children’s comic book! Weird, but true.

    The article, entitled Computers for Everyone, predicted “world knowledge at your fingertips….as early as the 1990′s.”” ~Paul Joseph Watson

    • That’s very interesting that the characteristics of the net were so clear, whereas many other technical theories have failed to materialize. I would guess the accuracy has to do with the mirroring projection of neural networks…which extrapolated in 1965 would project the future. Thanks for this link…somehow I had missed it previously.

      The kids today are wrapped up in it for better or worse. How would you predict the future of the internet, besides the control mechanisms or connection with an electronic Beast? I just wonder what part of today’s silicon technology would survive a trophic collapse due to say something as mundane as oil depletion or grid failure. Leaving out EMP or a big solar event or an asteroid revisiting Yucatan. It seems like alot of ducks have to stay in a row for the net to survive…without even getting into censorship, spying, chipping, and all that. Right now I am agnostic…so pray tell.

      • The future is never clear…even the past sitting on our heads is not certain but for it’s almost unbearable weight. One thing is so; all things must pass, and this so-called civilization will pass as well. We witness the likely beginnings of that passing even today.

        Those integers, the unknowns, such as the when of a solar EMP, or an asteroid … that is mystery assured. Yes, if we are assured of anything it is mystery.

        One thing is certain, if “High Tech” is not intervened, there will be a veritable Hell on Earth in the not too distant future. It is The Beast {technology}, it is the monster from the id, ala The Forbidden Planet. And it all started with chipping flint knives and arrowheads. A great wonder this ‘artifact’ …and it’s attendant golden calves.

  27. On November 24, 1980, the Associated Press quoted Leonard Bernstein, a
    globally prominent musical conductor, as saying in reference to the
    Kennedy assassination, “We don’t dare confront the implications. I think
    we’re all agreed there was a conspiracy and we don’t want to know. It
    involves such a powerful high force in what we call the high places, if we
    do know, everything might fall apart.”

    \\][//

    • I hear that fear of ‘things falling apart’ all the time by people afraid to think about 9/11 seriously. IMO it is rooted in heart memory of trophic collapse of our biology transmitted into mindset at the level of trope-ic collapse. It is the deal with devil that came in with the neolithic societies and govern-ment or mind-control. By that time it was getting to be impossible to survive in the hinterlands as free people, and many would join the circus state to avoid starvation or predation by the state. We are arch heterotrophs far from equilibrium. We sense we are far from equilibrium but do not want to give up one degree of amplitude or frequency which instead of spirit we allow to define us. I extrapolate trophic cascade from biology to project trope-ic collapse of belief systems. Changes in latitude, changes in attitude. A trope in math is a tangent or plane. We see the tropics as a tangent defining the amplitude of the sun’s journey through the year. Tropes are not mere embellishments of language, they are the deeper organization or world view of the believer which accepts the tangent as the definition of its amplitude and frequency. All neolithic rulers have found out they can control popular tropes by establishing amplitude and frequency of the energy exchange (bread, alcohol, water, fuel, amusements) and linking beliefs to the trophic delivery of a cargo cult….the spirit of pre contact Enkidu is forgotten (except by Ishtar)(or Enkidu in his dream) because people will eventually march on their stomachs and rally to falseflags hanging from the maypole, being heterotrophs clinging to the city statecraft. We can call ourselves free, but we are clearly not autotrophs like photosynthetic plants. So how free are we? Do we never serve or seek service? No. Nor should we try to be what we are not. We do not however need to throw in with Gilgamesh, Bibi, Obammy, and NBC. We can go back to the old ways in powerdown, an orderly trophic cascade that certainly tends toward greater freedom, at least, the freedom to voluntarily interact or contract with others.
      In the cult of the cities is power to control the mind, or government. Gilgamesh sleeps with our wives on our wedding night, with no tropic collapse. Thug cops can trash 4A at will and Massholes will cheer them on.. But challenge the citizen to take one degree less amplitude or less frequency and they are very upset with challenging their tropic boundary which they perceive as their bond to reality. Their fears are somewhat grounded in reality. Their tropic support system they well know is a piece of crap made in the USA. Wait til they get a taste of a banana republic (sic).
      Many of us are curious to see how a trophic collapse in the merkin dream could influence trope-ic shift in a positive rather than negative fashion, however realistically most of us sense we may need to not expect much positive…although as Will says the future is the great mystery. Hopi elders said to cast off from the banks and ride the river. We will just have to float down toward the trophic cascade ahead and see what happens.

      • Loved both your written response, and the Josie vidjo. Excellent.

        In a metaphoric sense, we are as free as our understanding of the message in the young lady’s rap. Free of mind. Freedom of body and action in merka and the world it rules is bound and straigjacketed. No, it is not a test, it is reality world wide…

  28. I should probably note that the PDF that I link to above is not actually about the Kennedy assassination, other than a lead in to addressing the larger issue of the paradigm, the world theater in-which the assassination could take place.

    The essay is actually about The Pilgrim Society, which the author claims is the prime secret society ruling the planet. So it is an exposition of ‘The Grand Conspiracy’, from this author’s point of view.

    There are many competing theories on this topic. Personally I don’t think the name, or title of the group is important. What is important is grasping that there are such hidden powers, and they are interconnected in the fashion this author describes. The architecture of modern political power is as put forward in this thesis. Whether all the specifics are correct is debatable, as there are many roads that lead to Hell.

  29. Plastic Fantastic Black Widows

    “The Sochi Games are occurring at the height of a Worldwide crisis marked by the confrontation between the US and Russia on the geopolitical chessboard. In turn, the ongoing protest movement in Ukraine has a bearing on Russia’s geopolitical control of the Black Sea.

    What would be the underlying political objective of a terrorist attack?

    Are these slanted media reports solely intended to create an aura of fear and uncertainty which causes political embarrassment to the Russian authorities?

    While network TV and the tabloids have their eyes riveted on the Black Widow, the more fundamental question as to Who is behind the Caucasus terrorists goes unmentioned.

    None of the news reports has focused on the fundamental question which is required in assessing the terror threat.

    Both the history of Al Qaeda as well as recent developments in Syria and Libya confirm unequivocally that the Al Qaeda network is covertly supported by Western intelligence.

    Materials for a History of Studies of Crisis Cults: A Bibliographic Essay
    Weston La Barre – Current Anthropology
    Abstract:
    Since the pioneering work of James Mooney on the Ghost Dance and F. E. Williams on the Vailala Madness, the study of crisis cults, in a native world undergoing massive acculturation, has become a major preoccupation of modern fieldwork. Notable theorists have been Ralph Linton and A. F. C. Wallace; areal monographs and compendia have multiplied; and the taxonomy of crisis cults has become highly developed. Theories of causality have suffered from the “tunnel vision” of confinement usually to a single preferred academic discipline, and the necessity of a holistic approach is demonstrated.~La Barre
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    As we live in the paradigm of a pathological society where Newspeak is the language du jour , new definitions must be made for the sake of sanity – thinking anew. “Crisis Cult” is a term that needs such a new definition, for our post industrial paradigm itself is a crisis cult. We live in an age of exponential crises, and this is dealt with in the main through the promotion of mass-delusion: Folie à Mondo.~ww

  31. It was obvious Boylston was fakery.. What I missed previously was the connection with the immigration ‘reform’ agenda. this vid is fine investigation. One world odor!

  32. Look up John Taylor Gatto. Last year I read his book; ‘Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher’s Journey through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling’ (2008). [ISBN 0-86571-631-5]

    I can’t recommend it too highly. It touches the same ground as Iserbyt, Antony Sutton; ‘The Dumbing Down of America’ – and ‘Skull and Bones’. The central issue is the importation of the Prussian model of Kindergarten indoctrination, or ‘factory schooling.

    This was a project headed by the tax-exempt foundations, like Ford and Rockefeller, etc.

    The totalitarian situation certainly didn’t come about by happenstance here.

    Gatto’s Main thesis

    What does school do to children? Gatto states the following assertions in “Dumbing Us Down”:

    It confuses the students. It presents an incoherent ensemble of information that the child needs to memorize to stay in school. Apart from the tests and trials that programming is similar to the television, it fills almost all the “free” time of children. One sees and hears something, only to forget it again.
    It teaches them to accept their class affiliation.
    It makes them indifferent.
    It makes them emotionally dependent.
    It makes them intellectually dependent.
    It teaches them a kind of self-confidence that requires constant confirmation by experts (provisional self-esteem).
    It makes it clear to them that they cannot hide, because they are always supervised.

    He also draws a contrast between communities and “networks,” with the former being healthy, and schools being examples of the latter; in the United States, networks have become an unhealthy substitute for community.

    \\][//

    • Gatto on standard education in America- “The first lesson I teach is confusion. Everything I teach is out of context. I teach the un-relating of everything. I teach dis-connections.”
      The result is pretty much the same thing as the old Testament man disconnected from his dominion, as seen on dollar bills. The biggest connection to sever with standardized education is the heart-mind bond, or empathy. Without this bond it is impossible to learn very much, and dumbing down is achievable. Psychopaths without empathy are the result of standard education. Heartless robots are required to run the machine into the ground. But to give budding psychos some phony empathy, maybe we could rustle up some Sandy Hoax kids in uniform at the Superbowl a few months after they died their miraculous deaths, shot to heaven, well, so they say (wink)

      Now the funny thing is cognitive dissonance and disconnectedness is ‘not a problem’ for our industrious warrior siblings. In fact that is what works best and is rewarded. If they do have problems they learn crisis acting and other PC role playing. Carlos provides a fine example of story telling skills. But I grant that they will not learn a redirection into truly new trix because of us cynics and skeptics. Something will have to emerge in them on their own terms. I’m not holding my breath.
      As an antidote to standardized education we might put up the opposite approach of connectedness and self knowledge. A very good book on that is by Carla Hannaford Ph.D called “Smart Moves”. She links learning to our biology and neural networks, devising strategies to enhance our experience of learning.
      One caveat is how the regime can steal creativity’s fire and techniques. Political cadres are trained in call and response, a technique whose origins were in drupad spirituality and around paleolithic campfires. If harmony is not wanted, disparage it with derogatives like singing kumbaya. When mirroring is wanted, sing hoo-ya and give masonic signs, or wear a sheep pelt to establish the right connections at Bohemian Grove.. Connectedness thus can be fashioned as chains to the big lies, perks and imperatives of the state. So connectedness per se means nothing if the signals transmitted are counterfeits of what the heart really wants and needs..
      Another twist, our situation is a combination of miseducation by disconnection to reality plus environmental poisoning. SAT scores have declined all through the nuclear era. Besides miseducation via disconnectedness there is generational dumbing down that is cognitive or biological. Add in factors like fetal alcohol syndrome, SSRI’s, endocrine disruption by foreign proteins, and rising autism, and there is a physical component to dumbing down the population besides the paradigm explained by Gatto.
      Can free men survive fools? Poster boy for dyslexia, GW Bushleague the Bleak, wanted to know, is the children learning? The answer clearly was within! No!
      What do you say, Veri? Haven’t heard from you in awhile, bro. Is home schooling the way out fer us seniors? Wilderness leadership courses with Timothy Treadwell? Music? Sannyasa? Yam festivals? Earth diving?
      I think what Hannaford is saying is that ideally learning begins in the womb. That might be how Zakir Hussein learned rythm. But for others who maybe have been disconnected to some degree all their lives, we need a toolkit to start things in the right direction maybe late in life, emergeant from dysfunctionality, a method that works for anyone without a long wait for satori. I have read some interesting ideas on education during aging by people like Andrew Weil. True learning is connection and stimulates brain cells to be happy campers. In the end each person is going to have to figure this one out and practice a method that is ‘personally endorsed and proven’ rather than something out of a rotten common core of misdirection, IMHO.

        You hit a keynote Mr Jack speaker. Being a born artist, and identified as such by my blessed grandfather when I was but three years old or so…I was made intimately aware of all the discouragement aimed my way as far as “being and artist when I grow up”.
        Being as “hard headed as a mule”, as my X3 used to say, I would let nothing stand in my way to my chosen life style. I always answered to my Muse first, no one else had a chance in competition with her.

        I can look back as far as I remember, as thinking the rest of the world was nuts.
        My stepfather once said to me, “oh, I get it, you’re the only sane one, and everybody else is crazy.” I was about 12 at the time. It took me back for a moment. Although I didn’t say it out loud, I though “yes, indeed”… And I have no idea of what I had said to illicit that response from him {???}. Life has taught me that generally I had it right back then. It’s not just intuition, it is paying attention, and really looking. Most people “see” misconceptions, templates of delusion cover the world they look out upon. They are under a deep dark spell.

        As far a Veri, he is under another kind of spell right now – one I was under just a short while ago; he is hooked on watching BREAKING BAD, the amazing series that we both missed because we don’t watch TV.

        Have you seen it Jack? It is an awesome thing – one of the best things ever produced as far as moving pictures. It took things to a new level. Set a new standard, not just for the small screen, but any size screen. It took me a while to be able to watch another film after that…they all seemed mediocre in comparison.

        Yoda McNoda’s Magic Soda didn’t even stand up to it.

  33. Didn’t finish high school. Maybe even a little dyslexic. Being a south paw, had to learn how to learn on my own. Hated school and had a passionate dislike for most of my teachers, they were unsuccessful of breaking me of my left handed ways and treated me thus.
    The mediocre spin mediocrity. They’re incapable of stepping outside of their comfort zone and are good little drones that go along to get along.
    Been close mouthed to keep from inserting a foot. Learning is exercising the faculties, never not been on a learning curve and certainly don’t feel any different than I ever did in my memory. I like my age and certainly don’t feel old. I stay healthy to stay flying. Building them and flying them might not be a recognizable art form to some but that’s my best foot forward and what turns my crank.
    You and Willy have a good rapport going here. I don’t see anything of consequence I can add or question, I’ll observe for the time being.

    • Hey Veri, howzda Breaking Bad viewing going? Have you reached the conclusion yet?

      Man I hated Walter White after thinking about it. Whatta psycho.

      \\][//

      • I’m up to where they first hook up with the particularly crooked lawyer towards the end of the second season. To tell you the truth Wil, I kind of sympathize with Walt. He hasn’t grabbed many breaks in his life and to find himself in his predicament. He’s been cast into the “cornered rat” syndrome. You cower and die or stand up and fight. Been in Jesse’s kinds of predicaments from time to time also. The stuff that happens to these two, hilarious but a nail bite’r too. Blue crank times. I think there’s 60 or so episodes, it’ll take awhile to view through it.

      • Yea, Walt is the veritable “cornered rat” … what is so intriguing about the series is how it depicts what Amerikan life is really like – even unto the whole modern world. The cultural critique comes to you with no preachy sermons, but is slammed into your face like a sledge hammer. And it ain’t ‘the pop’ – this is high art, this film making tour d’force. It has edge like a razor. The casting is unbearably superb, as is the writing and score.

        Me thinks it will be a long time before something so unique and – let me say; ‘perfect’ is achieved in this medium. And to think, it happened on the TV. Crazy.

    The National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes – an unreliable tactic that results in the deaths of innocent or unidentified people.

    According to a former drone operator for the military’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) who also worked with the NSA, the agency often identifies targets based on controversial metadata analysis and cell-phone tracking technologies. Rather than confirming a target’s identity with operatives or informants on the ground, the CIA or the U.S. military then orders a strike based on the activity and location of the mobile phone a person is believed to be using.

    The drone operator, who agreed to discuss the top-secret programs on the condition of anonymity, was a member of JSOC’s High Value Targeting task force, which is charged with identifying, capturing or killing terrorist suspects in Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

    His account is bolstered by top-secret NSA documents previously provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. It is also supported by a former drone sensor operator with the U.S. Air Force, Brandon Bryant, who has become an outspoken critic of the lethal operations in which he was directly involved in Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen.

    In one tactic, the NSA “geolocates” the SIM card or handset of a suspected terrorist’s mobile phone, enabling the CIA and U.S. military to conduct night raids and drone strikes to kill or capture the individual in possession of the device.

    The former JSOC drone operator is adamant that the technology has been responsible for taking out terrorists and networks of people facilitating improvised explosive device attacks against U.S. forces in Afghanistan. But he also states that innocent people have “absolutely” been killed as a result of the NSA’s increasing reliance on the surveillance tactic.

    One problem, he explains, is that targets are increasingly aware of the NSA’s reliance on geolocating, and have moved to thwart the tactic. Some have as many as 16 different SIM cards associated with their identity within the High Value Target system. Others, unaware that their mobile phone is being targeted, lend their phone, with the SIM card in it, to friends, children, spouses and family members.

    Some top Taliban leaders, knowing of the NSA’s targeting method, have purposely and randomly distributed SIM cards among their units in order to elude their trackers. “They would do things like go to meetings, take all their SIM cards out, put them in a bag, mix them up, and everybody gets a different SIM card when they leave,” the former drone operator says. “That’s how they confuse us.”

    As a result, even when the agency correctly identifies and targets a SIM card belonging to a terror suspect, the phone may actually be carried by someone else, who is then killed in a strike. According to the former drone operator, the geolocation cells at the NSA that run the tracking program – known as Geo Cell –sometimes facilitate strikes without knowing whether the individual in possession of a tracked cell phone or SIM card is in fact the intended target of the strike.

    “Once the bomb lands or a night raid happens, you know that phone is there,” he says. “But we don’t know who’s behind it, who’s holding it. It’s of course assumed that the phone belongs to a human being who is nefarious and considered an ‘unlawful enemy combatant.’ This is where it gets very shady.”

    The former drone operator also says that he personally participated in drone strikes where the identity of the target was known, but other unknown people nearby were also killed.

    “They might have been terrorists,” he says. “Or they could have been family members who have nothing to do with the target’s activities.”

    What’s more, he adds, the NSA often locates drone targets by analyzing the activity of a SIM card, rather than the actual content of the calls. Based on his experience, he has come to believe that the drone program amounts to little more than death by unreliable metadata.

    “People get hung up that there’s a targeted list of people,” he says. “It’s really like we’re targeting a cell phone. We’re not going after people – we’re going after their phones, in the hopes that the person on the other end of that missile is the bad guy.”

    The Obama administration has repeatedly insisted that its operations kill terrorists with the utmost precision.

    In his speech at the National Defense University last May, President Obama declared that “before any strike is taken, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured – the highest standard we can set.” He added that, “by narrowly targeting our action against those who want to kill us and not the people they hide among, we are choosing the course of action least likely to result in the loss of innocent life.”

    But the increased reliance on phone tracking and other fallible surveillance tactics suggests that the opposite is true. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which uses a conservative methodology to track drone strikes, estimates that at least 273 civilians in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia have been killed by unmanned aerial assaults under the Obama administration. A recent study conducted by a U.S. military adviser found that, during a single year in Afghanistan – where the majority of drone strikes have taken place – unmanned vehicles were 10 times more likely than conventional aircraft to cause civilian casualties.

    The NSA declined to respond to questions for this article. Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, also refused to discuss “the type of operational detail that, in our view, should not be published.”

    In describing the administration’s policy on targeted killings, Hayden would not say whether strikes are ever ordered without the use of human intelligence. She emphasized that “our assessments are not based on a single piece of information. We gather and scrutinize information from a variety of sources and methods before we draw conclusions.”

    Hayden felt free, however, to note the role that human intelligence plays after a deadly strike occurs. “After any use of targeted lethal force, when there are indications that civilian deaths may have occurred, intelligence analysts draw on a large body of information – including human intelligence, signals intelligence, media reports, and surveillance footage – to help us make informed determinations about whether civilians were in fact killed or injured.”

    The government does not appear to apply the same standard of care in selecting whom to target for assassination. The former JSOC drone operator estimates that the overwhelming majority of high-value target operations he worked on in Afghanistan relied on signals intelligence, known as SIGINT, based on the NSA’s phone-tracking technology.

    “Everything they turned into a kinetic strike or a night raid was almost 90 percent that,” he says. “You could tell, because you’d go back to the mission reports and it will say ‘this mission was triggered by SIGINT,’ which means it was triggered by a geolocation cell.”

    In July, the Washington Post relied exclusively on former senior U.S. intelligence officials and anonymous sources to herald the NSA’s claims about its effectiveness at geolocating terror suspects.

    Within the NSA, the paper reported, “A motto quickly caught on at Geo Cell: ‘We Track ’Em, You Whack ’Em.’”

    But the Post article included virtually no skepticism about the NSA’s claims, and no discussion at all about how the unreliability of the agency’s targeting methods results in the killing of innocents.

    In fact, as the former JSOC drone operator recounts, tracking people by metadata and then killing them by SIM card is inherently flawed. The NSA “will develop a pattern,” he says, “where they understand that this is what this person’s voice sounds like, this is who his friends are, this is who his commander is, this is who his subordinates are. And they put them into a matrix. But it’s not always correct. There’s a lot of human error in that.”

    The JSOC operator’s account is supported by another insider who was directly involved in the drone program. Brandon Bryant spent six years as a “stick monkey” – a drone sensor operator who controls the “eyes” of the U.S. military’s unmanned aerial vehicles. By the time he left the Air Force in 2011, Bryant’s squadron, which included a small crew of veteran drone operators, had been credited with killing 1,626 “enemies” in action.

    Bryant says he has come forward because he is tormented by the loss of civilian life he believes that he and his squadron may have caused. Today he is committed to informing the public about lethal flaws in the U.S. drone program.

    Bryant describes the program as highly compartmentalized: Drone operators taking shots at targets on the ground have little idea where the intelligence is coming from.

    “I don’t know who we worked with,” Bryant says. “We were never privy to that sort of information. If the NSA did work with us, like, I have no clue.”

    During the course of his career, Bryant says, many targets of U.S. drone strikes evolved their tactics, particularly in the handling of cell phones. “They’ve gotten really smart now and they don’t make the same mistakes as they used to,” he says. “They’d get rid of the SIM card and they’d get a new phone, or they’d put the SIM card in the new phone.”

    As the former JSOC drone operator describes – and as classified documents obtained from Snowden confirm – the NSA doesn’t just locate the cell phones of terror suspects by intercepting communications from cell phone towers and Internet service providers. The agency also equips drones and other aircraft with devices known as “virtual base-tower transceivers” – creating, in effect, a fake cell phone tower that can force a targeted person’s device to lock onto the NSA’s receiver without their knowledge.

    That, in turn, allows the military to track the cell phone to within 30 feet of its actual location, feeding the real-time data to teams of drone operators who conduct missile strikes or facilitate night raids.

    The NSA geolocation system used by JSOC is known by the code name GILGAMESH. Under the program, a specially constructed device is attached to the drone. As the drone circles, the device locates the SIM card or handset that the military believes is used by the target.

    Relying on this method, says the former JSOC drone operator, means that the “wrong people” could be killed due to metadata errors, particularly in Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia. “We don’t have people on the ground – we don’t have the same forces, informants, or information coming in from those areas – as we do where we have a strong foothold, like we do in Afghanistan. I would say that it’s even more likely that mistakes are made in places such as Yemen or Somalia, and especially Pakistan.”

    As of May 2013, according to the former drone operator, President Obama had cleared 16 people in Yemen and five in Somalia for targeting in strikes. Before a strike is green-lit, he says, there must be at least two sources of intelligence. The problem is that both of those sources often involve NSA-supplied data, rather than human intelligence (HUMINT).

    As the former drone operator explains, the process of tracking and ultimately killing a targeted person is known within the military as F3: Find, Fix, Finish. “Since there’s almost zero HUMINT operations in Yemen – at least involving JSOC – every one of their strikes relies on signals and imagery for confirmation: signals being the cell phone lock, which is the ‘find’ and imagery being the ‘unblinking eye’ which is the ‘fix.’” The “finish” is the strike itself.

    “JSOC acknowledges that it would be completely helpless without the NSA conducting mass surveillance on an industrial level,” the former drone operator says. “That is what creates those baseball cards you hear about,” featuring potential targets for drone strikes or raids.

    President Obama signs authorizations for “hits” that remain valid for 60 days. If a target cannot be located within that period, it must be reviewed and renewed. According to the former drone operator, it can take 18 months or longer to move from intelligence gathering to getting approval to actually carrying out a strike in Yemen. “What that tells me,” he says, “is that commanders, once given the authorization needed to strike, are more likely to strike when they see an opportunity – even if there’s a high chance of civilians being killed, too – because in their mind they might never get the chance to strike that target again.”

    While drones are not the only method used to kill targets, they have become so prolific that they are now a standard part of U.S. military culture. Remotely piloted Reaper and Predator vehicles are often given nicknames. Among those used in Afghanistan, says the former JSOC drone operator, were “Lightning” and “Sky Raider.”

    The latter drone, he adds, was also referred to as “Sky Raper,” for a simple reason – “because it killed a lot of people.” When operators were assigned to “Sky Raper,” he adds, it meant that “somebody was going to die. It was always set to the most high-priority missions.”

    In addition to the GILGAMESH system used by JSOC, the CIA uses a similar NSA platform known as SHENANIGANS. The operation – previously undisclosed – utilizes a pod on aircraft that vacuums up massive amounts of data from any wireless routers, computers, smart phones or other electronic devices that are within range.

    One top-secret NSA document provided by Snowden is written by a SHENANIGANS operator who documents his March 2012 deployment to Oman, where the CIA has established a drone base. The operator describes how, from almost four miles in the air, he searched for communications devices believed to be used by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in neighboring Yemen.The mission was code named VICTORYDANCE.

    “The VICTORYDANCE mission was a great experience,” the operator writes. “It was truly a joint interagency effort between CIA and NSA. Flights and targets were coordinated with both CIAers and NSAers. The mission lasted 6 months, during which 43 flights were flown.”

    VICTORYDANCE, he adds, “mapped the Wi-Fi fingerprint of nearly every major town in Yemen.”

    The NSA has played an increasingly central role in drone killings over the past five years. In one top-secret NSA document from 2010, the head of the agency’s Strategic Planning and Policy Division of the Counterterrorism Mission Management Center recounts the history of the NSA’s involvement in Yemen. Shortly before President Obama took office, the document reveals, the agency began to “shift analytic resources to focus on Yemen.”

    In 2008, the NSA had only three analysts dedicated to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen. By the fall of 2009, it had 45 analysts, and the agency was producing “high quality” signal intelligence for the CIA and JSOC.

    In December 2009, utilizing the NSA’s metadata collection programs, the Obama administration dramatically escalated U.S. drone and cruise missile strikes in Yemen.

    The first strike in the country known to be authorized by Obama targeted an alleged Al Qaeda camp in the southern village of al-Majala.

    The strike, which included the use of cluster bombs, resulted in the deaths of 14 women and 21 children. It is not clear whether the strike was based on metadata collection; the White House has never publicly explained the strike or the source of the faulty intelligence that led to the civilian fatalities.

    Another top-secret NSA document confirms that the agency “played a key supporting role” in the drone strike in September 2011 that killed U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki, as well as another American, Samir Khan. According to the 2013 Congressional Budget Justification, “The CIA tracked [Awlaki] for three weeks before a joint operation with the U.S. military killed” the two Americans in Yemen, along with two other people.

    When Brandon Bryant left his Air Force squadron in April 2011, the unit was aiding JSOC in its hunt for the American-born cleric. The CIA took the lead in the hunt for Awlaki after JSOC tried and failed to kill him in the spring of 2011.

    DT 4

    According to Bryant, the NSA’s expanded role in Yemen has only added to what he sees as the risk of fatal errors already evident in CIA operations. “They’re very non-discriminate with how they do things, as far as you can see their actions over in Pakistan and the devastation that they’ve had there,” Bryant says about the CIA. “It feels like they tried to bring those same tactics they used over in Pakistan down to Yemen. It’s a repeat of tactical thinking, instead of intelligent thinking.”

    T

    hose within the system understand that the government’s targeting tactics are fundamentally flawed. According to the former JSOC drone operator, instructors who oversee GILGAMESH training emphasize: “‘This isn’t a science. This is an art.’ It’s kind of a way of saying that it’s not perfect.”

    Yet the tracking “pods” mounted on the bottom of drones have facilitated thousands of “capture or kill” operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan since September 11. One top-secret NSA document provided by Snowden notes that by 2009, “for the first time in the history of the U.S. Air Force, more pilots were trained to fly drones … than conventional fighter aircraft,” leading to a “‘tipping point’ in U.S. military combat behavior in resorting to air strikes in areas of undeclared wars,” such as Yemen and Pakistan.

    The document continues: “Did you ever think you would see the day when the U.S. would be conducting combat operations in a country equipped with nuclear weapons without a boot on the ground or a pilot in the air?”

    Even NSA operatives seem to recognize how profoundly the agency’s tracking technology deviates from standard operating methods of war.

    One NSA document from 2005 poses this question: “What resembles ‘LITTLE BOY’ (one of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan during World War II) and as LITTLE BOY did, represents the dawn of a new era (at least in SIGINT and precision geolocation)?”

    Its reply: “If you answered a pod mounted on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that is currently flying in support of the Global War on Terrorism, you would be correct.”

    DT 3

    Another document boasts that geolocation technology has “cued and compressed numerous ‘kill chains’ (i.e. all of the steps taken to find, track, target, and engage the enemy), resulting in untold numbers of enemy killed and captured in Afghanistan as well as the saving of U.S. and Coalition lives.”

    The former JSOC drone operator, however, remains highly disturbed by the unreliability of such methods. Like other whistleblowers, including Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, he says that his efforts to alert his superiors to the problems were brushed off. “The system continues to work because, like most things in the military, the people who use it trust it unconditionally,” he says.

    When he would raise objections about intelligence that was “rushed” or “inaccurate” or “outright wrong,” he adds, “the most common response I would get was ‘JSOC wouldn’t spend millions and millions of dollars, and man hours, to go after someone if they weren’t certain that they were the right person.’ There is a saying at the NSA: ‘SIGINT never lies.’ It may be true that SIGINT never lies, but it’s subject to human error.”

    The government’s assassination program is actually constructed, he adds, to avoid self-correction. “They make rushed decisions and are often wrong in their assessments. They jump to conclusions and there is no going back to correct mistakes.” Because there is an ever-increasing demand for more targets to be added to the kill list, he says, the mentality is “just keep feeding the beast.”

    For Bryant, the killing of Awlaki – followed two weeks later by the killing of his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al Awlaki, also an American citizen – motivated him to speak out. Last October, Bryant appeared before a panel of experts at the United Nations – including the UN’s special rapporteur on human rights and counterterrorism, Ben Emmerson, who is currently conducting an investigation into civilians killed by drone strikes.

    Dressed in hiking boots and brown cargo pants, Bryant called for “independent investigations” into the Obama administration’s drone program. “At the end of our pledge of allegiance, we say ‘with liberty and justice for all,’” he told the panel. “I believe that should be applied to not only American citizens, but everyone that we interact with as well, to put them on an equal level and to treat them with respect.”

    Unlike those who oversee the drone program, Bryant also took personal responsibility for his actions in the killing of Awlaki. “I was a drone operator for six years, active duty for six years in the U.S. Air Force, and I was party to the violations of constitutional rights of an American citizen who should have been tried under a jury,” he said. “And because I violated that constitutional right, I became an enemy of the American people.”

    Bryant later told The Intercept, “I had to get out because we were told that the president wanted Awlaki dead. And I wanted him dead. I was told that he was a traitor to our country…. I didn’t really understand that our Constitution covers people, American citizens, who have betrayed our country. They still deserve a trial.”

    The killing of Awlaki and his son still haunt Bryant. The younger Awlaki, Abdulrahman, had run away from home to try to find his dad, whom he had not seen in three years. But his father was killed before Abdulrahman could locate him. Abdulrahman was then killed in a separate strike two weeks later as he ate dinner with his teenage cousin and some friends. The White House has never explained the strike.

    “I don’t think there’s any day that goes by when I don’t think about those two, to be honest,” Bryant says. “The kid doesn’t seem like someone who would be a suicide bomber or want to die or something like that. He honestly seems like a kid who missed his dad and went there to go see his dad.”

    Last May, President Obama acknowledged that “the necessary secrecy” involved in lethal strikes “can end up shielding our government from the public scrutiny that a troop deployment invites. It can also lead a president and his team to view drone strikes as a cure-all for terrorism.”

    But that, says the former JSOC operator, is precisely what has happened. Given how much the government now relies on drone strikes – and given how many of those strikes are now dependent on metadata rather than human intelligence – the operator warns that political officials may view the geolocation program as more dependable than it really is.

    “I don’t know whether or not President Obama would be comfortable approving the drone strikes if he knew the potential for mistakes that are there,” he says. “All he knows is what he’s told.”

    Whether or not Obama is fully aware of the errors built into the program of targeted assassination, he and his top advisors have repeatedly made clear that the president himself directly oversees the drone operation and takes full responsibility for it. Obama once reportedly told his aides that it “turns out I’m really good at killing people.”

    The president added, “Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.”

    • Murder One — simple as that. There is no excuse, none whatsoever.

      The whole ‘war on terror’ is based on a lie, it is myth and distorted reality.

      • Reads that Greenwald and associates are doing a slow release of Snowden info. What’s the strategy? Effect maybe? A lot of people are now tuned in. What better way to have a cascading effect. It still begs the question though. Who and what forces are behind this. It’s a given I think, something’s being played off here. But to what end. That’s a question being asked across the real alternate news.

      • Look at the forces that Greenwald aligned with…who profits? Cui Bono? — a staple in critical thinking. Figure out who profits from the paradigm that is the logical conclusion to the info being disclosed by the Greenwald tack.

        At first it seems “a given” that NSA is a target to be brought down. But if this is the case, what will the process be, and what will replace it as a center of power?

        The cards are being played close to the chest here. I don’t like the idea of the info being delivered an spoon-size portions. I’d rather see the whole bag spilled on the floor and let others highlight what they find of interest. This is information being managed, and whoever manages information has an agenda as the reason for controlling it. And “control” is usually the reason to control something. It’s an Orwellian critique, the whole purpose of “power” is power. Cut to the bones, simplify, what do words really mean?

        You say yourself that they “are doing a slow release” – doling the info out. The most innocent ‘assumption’ behind such a process is that the public needs the info ‘organized’ for their consumption. Well there is no “public” but that which is held in mind metaphorically. This is crowd control psychology that is at work here, whether consciously or not on the part of Mr G and his ‘associates’. Do you think Mr G has a sophisticated grasp of crowd control psychology? I would presume that he does.

        Now, does this assessment necessarily equate to proposing sinister intent by Greenwald or his associates? Not necessarily so … but any who hold on to knowledge, wishing to control it, “for your own good” is bullshit, whether the person controlling it is aware of it or not.

      • I always wanna suggest people go back to basics studying the purpose of a perennial political gambit- limited hangout and judas goat. Pretending Snowjob reveals secrets covers up the deepest truths that can never be said for they are treason involving 9/11, national treasure, Presidential assassination and all World Wars. These pathetic jokers got folks worried about NSA spying not the octopus controlling all world governments via money, military and media. The management is very happy to throw some stupid USI agency like NSA to the herd to stall out a new investigation into historical reality…keeps the focus way down the chain of command. the truth is, if Stasi goes Google, it makes no diff. No change in ownership anywhere.
        I would guess all the peeps cheating on their taxes are a target of NSA paranoia. Any citizen with something to hide would be more inclined to STFU because big brother, the world’s arch crime syndicate, is keeping tabs on its competition.
        I’m just surprised people can’t grok something so obvious. But we already looked into ‘why Johnnny can’t larn”.

    The United States is fast racking up characteristics of a Third World nation. Its finances are Third World. Its president is Third World. Its banking integrity is Third World. Its absent industry is Third World. Its decaying cities are Third World. It urgently begs for a Third World currency, but that is soon to be remedied. The nation has been a freeloader on the global reserve currency for too long. That is about to end. For the last three years, the United States has been living in a fairy tale with bailouts from the vast bond monetization. The Quantitative Easing with its amplified bond purchases and hidden channels to disguise higher volumes has been operating as an historically unprecedented Wall Street bailout and Fannie Mae fraud recycle room. Pressures are building. The USDollar held in foreign jurisdictions is beyond the legal authority of the USGovt, which cannot continue covering its debts with inflation spew in the grandest heretic experiment in history. The solution within the global currency reset is the launch of the new American Dollar, for its own usage, no longer a global reserve currency.

    Given its wretched fundamentals, it earns the name of Scheiss Dollar. Those familiar with the German language recognize it as the Shit Dollar. It will be stowed high in transit, true to the colonial application of shipping manure that gave off gas. S.H.I.T. was a warning to beware of gas explosions from lanterns on ships transporting the fertilizer agent. The current USDollar is not just giving off excess gas for global banking system flatulence. Its gas has produced vast insolvency in the banking systems of many nations. The air pockets in circulatory systems have caused widespread cardiac arrest. The higher cost structure, primarily felt in food prices and energy prices, but also in material prices, has resulted in diminished profitability and a ruinous retirement of capital. The capital destruction must be halted, going hand in hand with global recession. Foreign nations demand a new solution and quickly. Thus the Global Currency Reset, within which the new Scheiss Dollar will be launched.

    INSURMOUNTABLE PRESSURES BUILD
    As the world moves away from the USDollar, it will avoid the USTreasury Bond in banking reserve function. The world will settle trade outside the USDollar on a rapidly growing basis. The result will be a shock to the USeconomy with fast rising prices. Alternative systems will move toward other currencies in trade settlement, like the Chinese Yuan and Gold bullion. The USFed will compensate by printing money to cover the USTBond selloff, dumping, divestiture, and indirect exchange. Only when the foreign suppliers do not want USDollars will the problem hit the United States like a financial hurricane.

    The USFed response will trigger two events: a separate dollar from a split, and the ravage of price inflation. Not monetary inflation but rather a currency crisis will slam the United States. Powerful dynamics inside the United States and outside the United States will result in split birth of a new Scheiss Dollar for domestic usage, but also a flood of foreign USDollars converted to Gold bullion. The Scheiss Dollar will suffer from a sequence of devaluations. The conversion of USTBonds and other sovereign bonds to gold will gain momentum to change the face of the world. The Gold Standard lies directly ahead. In fact, the Global Currency Reset has a more appropriate name in the Return to the Gold Standard.

    The pressures internal and external to the United States will force drastic action. The USGovt must defend against a growing tide of USTreasury Bond dumping and absent demand for USTreasury Bonds, both hitting simultaneously. The USFed cannot solve the imbalance and fill the gaps, by means of endless monetary hyper inflation. The USGovt must make a new Domestic Dollar, and devalue it in order to assure supply to the import dependent USEconomy. Neither the financial so-called experts nor the US maestros will not anticipate how deeply they will have to devalue the New Scheiss Dollar. The Jackass estimates between 50% and 60% in at least two steps, probably more. The result will be well over 100% price inflation. See Venezuela for an example that made up for two decades of abuse. Also, the US maestros have misjudged the oil supply from the Bakken region, misjudged the natural gas supply from Shale projects, while contaminating the US-based water supply table.$7.77 Shipping

    The USFed must halt its hyper monetary inflation, since it is wrecking the global financial markets and ruining capital on a grand scale. No more can the central bank cover the sold and dumped USTreasury Bonds with newly printed money. So they lie about tapering, after a failed experiment last year. The QE volume is increasing, not decreasing. Monetary inflation is a cancer, always has been, always will be. To call it the New Normal is national suicide. The three years of QE bond monetization have created the high pressure factor in the massive vortex. As the global trade is settled more outside the USDollar, far fewer USTreasury Bonds will be accumulated by foreign trade players. In fact, a whirlwind of USTBonds will be sold off during a grand divestiture, often called diversification. As the USDollar goes out of favor in trade, the United States will have a tremendous new challenge.

    Being a massive importer, the USEconomy must find a means of paying for the huge volume of incoming supply. This is precisely how the USDollar will undergo its crisis. Events will go out of control. The USGovt must find a way to devalue its USDollar currency, and stop printing new USDollars. During the next chapter, foreigners will begin refusing USD in trade while selling its USTBond shelves from their banking systems. The sales dump will form the low pressure factor of the massive vortex. The hurricane is gathering force from the high pressure of central bank monetary growth, combined simultaneously with the low pressure of foreign dumping. Add to the intense pressures the economic damage from capital destruction, which raises sovereign government deficits that must be financed.

    VICIOUS CYCLE & DOWNWARD SPIRAL
    The USFed response will be to print money to cover the sales of USTBonds, but done with a discount which has already begun in force. The debasement of the USD from rampant money supply growth will exacerbate the situation. Foreign USTBond holders will rush to sell more, thus fueling the downward spiral. The USFed will print even more money to compensate in the bond monetization, probably done in hidden fashion to hide the monstrous QE volume increase. Then comes the full blown currency crisis, which in my view will result in a currency split. The USGovt with its USFed masters will decide to split the currency. They will tell the foreigners that the external USDollars retain value, but a new Scheiss Dollar (aka Shit Dollar) will be distributed in order to pay for imports from foreign suppliers. It will be devaluated, in order to encourage its acceptance and to assure incoming supply. The foreign USTBond selling will slow down, and even halt, only when the USFed promises to redeem with original USTBonds in cash. The foreigners will use the cash to buy other major currencies and Gold Bullion, and certainly not swap into the new Republic Shit Dollar.

    The Chinese will take control of the Federal Reserve, and assume responsibility for management of foreign held USDollars, with some assistance by the Intl Monetary Fund. The IMF already has a Chinese dominance. The USDept Treasury late last year took back control of certain USDollar responsibility. Doing so set the stage for launch of the Scheiss Dollar, while the Chinese had been busy with acquisition of the JPMorgan headquarters in South Manhattan. The split oversight has already taken root.

    As the perception spreads like a virus that the new Scheiss Dollar will see deep devaluation on a repetitive basis, the torrent will be directed toward conversion of major nation sovereign bonds into Gold bullion. From 2009 to 2012 the PIGS took the headlines. Next the US, UK, and Japan will make headlines for trouble in sovereign bonds. As the perception spreads like a virus that the major currencies all suffer from the central bank debasement problem, the conversion of Euros, British Pounds, and Japanese Yen will all be directed toward Gold Bullion. Their sovereign bonds will undergo separate simultaneous crises, all perceived as toxic paper. The recognition of Gold Trade Settlement will be common, its practice born in a simultaneous stroke. The momentum into Gold Bullion will be staggering, secret, and robust, led by the BRICS Bank (aka Gold Trade Central Bank).

    On the domestic front, the new split Scheiss Dollar will face a huge problem of its own. The USGovt deficits must be covered, and the foreigners will continue not to purchase the USTBonds. They already do not bid at USTreasury auctions. They already are shedding them en masse, as their divestitute continues like a rampaging storm. Marginal factors will dominate. The enormous new supply and absent demand within the US walls will result in severe devaluation. The USTreasury Bonds will offer a higher yield with a lower currency value, in order to attract foreign buyers again for its toxic Third World debt. Expect probably a devaluation of the Scheiss Dollar with a first sudden quantum step like 30% down. When it finally trades more freely like in the FOREX open market introduction, it should suffer another quantum step down. Such launch will be traumatic, loaded with shock, and begin the sweeping perception of Third World America in an outbreak of reality.

    The loss of US industry will become a major point of discussion and debate, the focus on attracting it back. Harsh blame will be given for decisions to move industry to the Pacific Rim, then to China. More likely the open trading could result in 10% decline per month for a while, with ugly quantum jumps. In the end, the internal domestic newly split Scheiss Dollar could be devaluated by up to 70%. That is exactly what it deserves, in response to annual 1 $trillion government deficits, annual $400 to $500 billion trade deficits, a newly arrived higher Current Account Deficit from the global USTBond selloff, a grossly inadequate industrial base, wrecked financial markets, and deep corruption broadly across the top echelons, with a clear double standard in legal prosecution for $trillion crime. The symptoms are recognized as Third World. Commercial colonization will hit the US shores, a process also already begun.

    INDIRECT EXCHANGE DUMPING OF USTBONDS
    The indirect exchange concept will continue to accelerate. A quick review around the world can identify a wide range of locations for the discharge. The USTreasury Bonds are being used as currency by third parties (mostly China & Russia) to pay for large assets sales and energy purchases. The USGovt bonds are being dumped. A race will develop to convert the USTBonds before a final restructure writedown. In past Hat Trick Letter reports, some major Indirect Exchange routes had been identified. The biggest two were the Rosneft buyout of the British Petroleum stake in the TBK-BP huge Russian energy firm for $55 billion. The deal will see the Russians unloading those $billions in USTBonds, sent to London banks where they cannot be refused. The other large deal is to be the payment by China for Russian crude oil delivered via the vast network of Asian pipelines. The Chinese will pay the huge annual energy bill in USTBonds, a steady discharge.

    The Indirect Exchange usage of USTBonds will contribute to the external pressure on the USDollar, from which the USGovt will be forced to ramp up the QE volume in bond monetization, and then split the USDollar for a domestic currency that is heavily devalued. The radical action will take place as the USD is dropped from global reserve status. Several creditor nations will follow suit in the Indirect Exchange movement, including Brazil, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Luxembourg, Norway, and Ireland. The exchange of bonds will grow and become a global stampede, then a race to extract value before the USTreasury Bonds default and convert to 65 cents on the dollar during a Global Restructure Conference, with the USMilitary having a seat to ensure cooperation and compliance (with a smile). The Jackass forecast of a USGovt debt default made in late 2008 is slowly taking shape.

    NO MORE USTREASURY BOND DEMAND
    The overriding global message is that Russia & China are leading a movement across the entire East to dump the USTBond, to work toward alternative trade settlement, and to replace the USDollar in its key role as trade settlement medium and global reserve currency. A Global Paradigm Shift is in progress. Downward pressure in the USTreasury 10-year bond yield (TNX) will be seen in the poor economic results and application of the interest rate derivative machinery. Upward pressure in the TNX will be seen from the global USD/USTBond rejection and recognition of the USFed Taper Talk falsehood deception. The USFed is on course to lose all remaining credibility. Their prestige vanished with the introduction of the Quantitative Easing against the ZIRP zero bound rates. Five key important points dominate the global landscape like a gigantic billboard.
    1) QE to Infinity is being recognized, the Taper Talk widely seen as a ruse and propaganda to defend the broken USDollar, another turn in the road.
    2) The Geneva Iran Talks can be better described as the Petro-Dollar Surrender Talks, another turn in the road.
    3) The Boyz might misjudge that the derivatives can prevent a powerful breakout above the critical 3.0% and toward the 3.7% target, as the London Whale incident was a turn in the road.
    4) The Indirect Exchange seen in broad USTBond dumping is a new dangerous disruptive trend, yet another turn in the road.
    5) The pension and bond funds as well as insurance sector demand higher bond yields for carry income, a breakdown coming.

    PETRO-DOLLAR DEMISE & PETRO-GOLD RISE
    The JPMorgan metal futures unit is actually included in a commodities sale, despite bank denials. The ploys continue to keep the ongoing gold price suppression active. One side attempts to comply with regulatory requirements, while the other side attempts to maintain gold inventory management scheme tied to deep gold market fraud. The JPM folks are liars to the end. The big bank is under siege by regulators who slowly grow teeth. Being revealed is the inter-relations with the brokerage business, like in providing credit.

    Shadow warehouses are hoarding industrial metals, as the world’s metal is slipping into the shadows of a convenient system beyond regulation. The power centers slip away from the light as they attempt to retain control. Banks, hedge funds, commodity merchants, and other seamy firms (like offshore subsidiaries) are hiding tens of millions of tons of aluminum, copper, nickel, and zinc in a vast system of private warehouses. The network spans the globe. These facilities are known to some in the industry as shadow warehouses, since unregulated and not subject to disclosure. Their purpose is to operate outside the London Metal Exchange system of warehouses, their traditional home.

    London and Frankfurt are way ahead in the Renminbi hub game. The Chinese Yuan currency trade will solidify the non-USDollar alternative movement. Great irony comes, since the final nail in the USDollar coffin will come from London, Frankfurt, and Switzerland, with their hands on the hammer. The Swiss business community is not enthusiastic at all about Yuan-based bond trading, as extreme competition has been sensed.

    The Turkish Govt might be the casualty of a $119 billion Petro-Dollar loophole. The Great Silk Road is making a return, with gilded center stripes. An incredibly powerful reaction to the Iran sanctions has occurred, which should astonish analysts. Iran has biult a Petro-Gold highway out of necessity and expedience. Iran has brought the King Dollar to its knees. The Iran talks are about USDollar surrender, to assure no nuclear proliferation in its wake. The Geneva Iran Nuclear Talks should instead be called the Petro-Dollar Surrender Summit, as the Iran crime of selling energy outside the USD sphere has come full circle. The 21st century equivalent of the Great Silk Road is beginning to emerge. It has been constructed in the last year. The Iran workaround of the Iran sanctions has constructed the prototype of the Petro-Gold machinery. The rat has escaped the maze built by the USGovt and has wandered off the table.

    The Petro-Dollar is being carted to the global cemetery, where war usually is triggered. Amazingly, the feisty maverick Iran has constructed the embryonic lanes for trade settlement in gold. The gold trade has long been at the center of controversial financial ties between Halkbank of Turkey and the oil ministry in Iran. Research conducted in May 2013 by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and Roubini Global Economics revealed the Halkbank exploited a golden loophole in the punitive extensive sanctions by the USGovt against the Iran regime. The ruse was the public declaration of design to curb Iran’s nuclear program. The reality was to halt energy sales outside the USDollar. Its detailed workings are as simple and elegant as they are powerful.

    IRAN, TURKEY, INDIA HOLD THE CROWBAR
    India has a long history of tremendous gold demand. The private citizens own between 20,000 and 30,000 tons, apart from the banking system. Together with China, the pedal is held to the metal on gold demand, which works to break the paper gold price suppression schemes. Turkey after all is a key pivot ally in the region, as will be seen in the Eurasian Trade Zone as well. At the same time, Turkey was playing a key role in US policy in Syria. Possibly, the USGovt wished to appease its own allies, who regarded the Iran sanctions as far too punitive not only to Iran, but also to Western European nations. It appears the US under the clumsy Obama hand lost on all fronts, a regular occurrence on the geopolitical stage. The man has the anti-Midas touch. Possibly, the compromise had more to do with coaxing Iran into signing a nuclear deal. There might have been an American olive branch extended to Iran via Turkey, done to persuade its leaders to continue back-channel negotiations with the United States, under other hidden agendas. Again though, the US is not on any winning side, since the Iran Talks are not about nuclear disarmament or dismantled weapons programs. The main nuclear topic in discussion at the Geneva-based Iran Talks is the usage of nuclear weapons by the United States in retaliation for abandoning the USDollar, a highly secretive table topic. The gain for the USGovt is the appearance of taking the high ground of diplomacy, while guilty of genocide in civilian killings in several war zones and of earth crimes in HAARP usage on earthquakes, hurricanes, and rainfall. The USGovt is playing an absurd end game strategy to save face as it falls into the Third World.

    BIRTH OF PETRO-GOLD
    The birth of the Petro-Gold trade will coincide with the birth of the Petro-Yuan, and later usher in the Gold Trade Settlement in full glory. It remains to be seen what the new gold-backed currencies will be, but they will arrive in a powerful stream, probably in direct response to a unmistakable systemic collapse that cannot be painted over in the financial press. The Saudis will find themselves scrambling to retain their plundered wealth, even to save their skins. They will return as very wealthy bedouins on the move, if they fail to make significant reforms at home.

    What comes in the year 2014 will be amplified global USDollar rejection and widespread USTreasury Bond divestiture. It will cause fireworks aplenty. Russia will pull some strings in Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf. Expect Putin to use Dubai and China together with Iran to weaken the House of Saud, and possibly to knock them off their exploitative throne. Russian vengeance is coming very soon. Notice Putin and the Chinese president meeting numerous times during the Sochi Winter Olympics, taking advantage of the venue without Western leaders in the room. Russian tactics will likely force the Saudis to adopt certain financial devices on oil pricing. Their adoption will wreck the US relations, like massive lobs of grenades into the USTBond and Big Bank Stock windows. In 12 to 18 months, expect the House of Saud Royals will be on the run in Southern Europe, as in running for their lives from both Russian and HezBollah hit squads. The attack on the Saudis does not necessarily mean the fall of the House of Saud, only tremendous changes, concessions, maybe even public payouts.

    EASTERN LINCHPIN NATIONS
    Greece, Turkey, and Ukraine are critical linchpins, each with a critical pivotal role to plan in the global Paradigm Shift and in the development of the Eurasian Trade Zone. Many are the deceptions in the last couple years. To be sure, Cyprus might stay in the European Union, but it will keep a big window open to Russia with the GazpromBank. Then Greece will be a battleground for its energy pipeline access to Europe, perhaps the main reason why the EU continues to throw good money after bad in Athens. Then Turkey and Ukraine are critically important to tip the entire table East for the Eurasian Trade Zone. The Turkish gold routes will be extraordinarily important. The Ukraine energy pipeline routes will be extraordinarily important. The East can afford to lose Cyprus. The West is on the verge of losing Greece, which could be bought over the weekend by Russia with pocket change. But the East must have Turkey (for gold) and must have Ukraine (for energy) in the skeletal structure, as the paradigm shift continues to move and the trade zone takes form. It is interesting that the Bosporus Straits were crucial in ancient times, where fees were paid. Nowadays Turkey commands the NATO airbase and the gold trade routes.

    WASHINGTON TOSSES SAUDIS UNDER THE BUS
    China has begun to support the Arab states, making promises toward regional development and political stature. They must shmooze in order to create a fertile seedbed for the Petro-Yuan defacto standard to be born. Large projects and oil client relations over the last decade have helped. The new Persian Gulf protectorate role is being reshaped, slowly but surely. Arab monarchies eye stronger ties with China, and have conducted high level meetings. The Persian Gulf nations prepare for the Petro-Yuan. The Gulf Coop Council will serve as the platform for wider Chinese protectorate role. It will eventually usher in the Petro-Yuan Standard more formally, but only after more wine, more lamb, more deals, and more head nodding. Any strategic partnership between the Saudis and China means dumping WashingtonDC, simply put. The fallout will be tremendous.

    As the United States embarks on a new path, with the Saudis perceived and painted at the extremists who discard the USDollar in favor of Asian devices, watch relations between the US and Iran warm slowly. The process has already begun. This point has been made by the Jackass in past analysis and interviews. Look for growing evidence that the USGovt will see Iran as a stability rock in the Persian Gulf after the Saudis piss on the US Embassy gates, after the Saudis discard the Petro-Dollar in favor of a tighter deal with Russian oil pricing and Chinese Yuan oil payments. Meanwhile, the Saudis are being painted with a nasty ugly new brush by the USGovt and its dutiful press like the New York Times. The Saudis will be forced to apply the crowbar that collapses the very Petro-Dollar that the kingdom has depended upon for 40 years to plunder their nation. The great divestiture of the Saudi USTreasury Bonds will take place while London and New York bankers continue to rehypothecate (steal) Saudi gold. All the Saudi gold outside their nation will disappear. Most Saudi gold has already been stolen. In the aftermath, no nation on earth will trust the Americans and British, who will have tossed the Saudis under the bus and stolen their gold. As WashingtonDC paints the Saudis as terrorists, watch the royals reveal who really took the lead role on 911.

  36. “Jim Willie dollarThe solution within the global currency reset is the launch of the new American Dollar, for its own usage, no longer a global reserve currency.
    The United States is fast racking up characteristics of a Third World nation. Its finances are Third World. Its president is Third World. Its banking integrity is Third World. Its absent industry is Third World. Its decaying cities are Third World. It urgently begs for a Third World currency, but that is soon to be remedied. The nation has been a freeloader on the global reserve currency for too long.
    That is about to end.”

    Jim Willie and others have been crying “wolf” on this situation for a long time. But if we recall the end of that story [The Boy Who Cried Wolf] — the wolf did eventually come. And in this instance, it is not only the boy who will get eaten.

    I guess we’ve all known for a long time that Amerika is fucked. The empire of the west is in a state of collapse – what actually follows depends on a crystal ball to report with any real accuracy. My crystal ball fogged up some years ago — all I got to see was what is here at the present, and that is just prologue to something mysterious.

  39. Ariel Sharon, Another War Crime Surfaces: Expulsion and Massacre of the Bedouins

    By Jonathan Cook
    Global Research, February 13, 2014
    Url of this article:
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/ariel-sharon-another-war-crime-surfaces/5368568

    Forty-two years late, another Israeli war crime emerges from the shadows. In this case, dozens, and more probably hundreds, of Israeli soldiers kept a decades-long vow of secrecy. One of them is Shlomo Gazit, today a respected (in Israel, at least) academic at Tel Aviv University.

    In January 1972, Ariel Sharon decided that 3,000 Bedouin were in the way of a massive military exercise he wanted to conduct in the southern Negev and northern Sinai. So he summarily expelled two tribes in the el-Arish area of the Sinai from their homes, during a deep winter spell. At least 40 people died, mostly babies, children and the elderly.

    A young army researcher, Clinton Bailey, heard from other Bedouin of the expulsion and went to meet the families. He photographed 28 small graves at their new makeshift location.

    He then brought the expulsion to the attention of the head of the army, David Elazar. Although Elazar ordered the tribes to be returned to their land, it was too late for the dozens who had died. No action was taken against Sharon or anyone else. In fact, Sharon’s military and later political career prospered on such “exploits”.

    Bailey and everyone else covered up the crime for four decades, fearful of the damage it would do to Israel’s reputation. The silence has been broken now because Bailey divulged the incident to journalist David Landau, who was preparing a new biography of Ariel Sharon.

    Haaretz coyly admits that its military correspondent of the time knew of the war crime too but kept quiet. The paper has published the story now, but one cannot but ponder its motives. This revelation should help book sales, and Landau is a former senior editor at the paper.

    No one is denying that these events took place. The Israeli army even comments that the “case is known”, though it wishes to say nothing more. Gazit has no recollection of being told about it at the time.

    What other such crimes do we still not know about because Israelis consider their loyalty to their state more important than their responsibility as human beings to the truth and justice?

    And although Haaretz, and most of those involved in the cover-up, treat this as some footnote in the historical record, or another aberration to lay at the feet of Sharon, the reality is that Israel is still driving Arabs – Palestinians – off their land. The people of the Jordan Valley, Sussiya and East Jerusalem know this only too well.

        Canadian Conscious Rap artist, formerly of the group, Rhythmicru pretty much breaks down everything my site has been saying for the past 3 years in less than four and a half minutes, on this track, “The Truth Is”.

        Even people who think they don’t like Rap will like this brilliant summary of the rampant corruption in our world and the falsity of our most basic beliefs.

        ===

        “The Truth Is” Lyrics:

        [Chorus]
        The truth is that we need
        To open up our eyes so that we start to see
        All of the lies that we were told and we believed
        Because the time has come to face reality
        And work together for the sake of liberty
        So that our future generation can be free
        WE NEED TO WAKE UP
        AND SEE THAT
        THE TRUTH IS NOT
        WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

        [Verse One]
        Truth is, the Real reason for war is
        Motivated by money and corporate interest
        Rwanda didn’t have oil, that’s why
        The world turned a blind eye during its genocide

        Truth is, corporations can donate
        An unlimited amount of money to a candidate
        Democrats and Republicans are bought and paid
        So Government does whatever corporations say
        Truth is the President doesn’t run the country
        The people in charge are those who control the money
        So The Federal Reserve is really more powerful
        Than the U.S. Government and they’re running the show
        The truth is, That Goldman Sachs
        Sold sub-prime mortgages they knew were bad
        they also profited by betting they’d all fail
        So they’d win either way and no one went to jail
        Truth is, the financial crisis ain’t solved
        It was a big Ponzi scheme, an inside job
        Where taxpayers bailed out the banks who caused
        It in the first place and now, they’re still in charge
        Truth is, money is created from debt
        If all debt was repaid there’d be no money left
        But loans that are made have interest attached
        That doesn’t exist so we can’t pay it back
        Truth is, our banking system’s a trap
        That leads to bankruptcy and collapse
        It’s why the States are fifty trillion in the hole
        And this crisis is spreading all around the globe
        Truth is, a crash is inevitable
        Cuz’ our growing debt must be matched in the real world
        Through the use of resources, so infinite growth
        On a finite planet is impossible

        [Chorus]
        The truth is that we need
        To open up our eyes so that we start to see
        All of the lies that we were told and we believed
        Because the time has come to face reality
        And work together for the sake of liberty
        So that our future generation can be free
        WE NEED TO WAKE UP
        AND SEE THAT
        THE TRUTH IS NOT
        WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

        [Verse Two]
        Truth is, The C.I.A.
        Has a history of smuggling drugs into the States
        Their profits are then laundered through banks
        In order to help them secretly operate
        Cuz’ the truth is, they’ve been involved
        In things that should make people appalled
        Like mind control experiments on soldiers
        To alter their behavior with drugs and hypnosis
        Truth is, Nazis were the first to try
        Putting fluoride into the nation’s water supply
        To dumb people down and control what they think
        And now it’s in almost all the water that we drink
        Truth is, there’s a chemical company
        Called Monsanto controlling the food we eat
        By transforming everything genetically
        And then forcing everyone to only use their seeds
        Truth is, that the medical industry
        Is big business with millions of employees
        the last thing it wants is a cure for cancer
        Cuz’ they’d lose trillions if there was ever an answer
        Truth is, cures for cancer exist
        Just look up Dr. Burzynski in Texas
        Who’s been curing people with tumors for years
        The F.D.A. and the government don’t want you to hear
        Truth is, you can’t trust the TV News
        It’s pre-filtered to distract and confuse
        All the outlets are owned by only five companies
        So It’s impossible to ever get news objectively
        Cuz’ the truth is, people need to wake up
        And expose how our whole system is corrupt
        And if you think I’m wrong, go ahead try to stump me
        Let’s see you write a song as smart as this to debunk me

        [Chorus]
        The truth is that we need
        To open up our eyes so that we start to see
        All of the lies that we were told and we believed
        Because the time has come to face reality
        And work together for the sake of liberty
        So that our future generation can be free
        WE NEED TO WAKE UP
        AND SEE THAT
        THE TRUTH IS NOT
        WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

    Binyamin Netanyahu has launched a swingeing attack on supporters of a boycott of Israel, accusing them of practising “antisemitism in a new garb”, and urged the country’s friends to “expose and outflank” them by emphasising its high-tech achievements and global economic appeal.

    Addressing a conference of US Jewish organisations in Jerusalem, the Israeli prime minister said the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement was intended to lead to “the end of the Jewish state”.

    “Some supporters of the movement see it as a way to put pressure on Israel to end illegal settlements in the territories occupied in the 1967 war; others favour the creation of a single state that would dismantle Israel.

    “I think the most eerie thing, the most disgraceful thing is to have people on the soil of Europe talking about the boycott of Jews,” Netanyahu said. “In the past, antisemites boycotted Jewish businesses and today they call for the boycott of the Jewish state. And by the way, only the Jewish state.

    “The founders of the BDS movement make their goals perfectly clear. They want to see the end of the Jewish state. They’re quite explicit about it. And I think it’s important that the boycotters must be exposed for what they are. They’re classical antisemites in modern garb. And I think we have to fight them. It’s time to delegitimise the delegitimisers.”

    Netanyahu’s remarks reflect anger and anxiety in Jerusalem about BDS, which claims to have made a significant advance during the recent row involving Scarlett Johansson’s sponsorship of a factory in a West Bank settlement and her leaving her role as a goodwill ambassador for Oxfam.

    Pressure on Israel is mounting, especially from Europe, where NGOs, trade unions, churches and others are forcing their governments to take action. Last year the EU blocked grants and funding for any Israeli entity operating beyond the pre-1967 borders, building on earlier decisions to require the labelling of goods produced in settlements. Two weeks ago the US secretary of state, John Kerry, warned that Israel would face more calls for boycotts if the current peace talks with the Palestinians collapsed.

    But Israel was far from being shunned, Netanyahu insisted: “Israel is being sought after.. Founders and leaders of big companies and some small companies and medium-sized companies … are all coming to Israel. They all want the same three things: Israeli technology, Israeli technology and Israeli technology. They know that Israel is the repository of great genius, great creativity, entrepreneurship, innovation, scientific capability, out-of-the-box thinking.”

    But Rafeef Ziadah, from the Palestinian BDS national committee, said: “More international corporations are ending their business and shying away from bids in Israel This trend is due to continue until Israel abides by international law and ends its system of colonialism, apartheid and occupation. The BDS movement is steadily making ‘Brand Israel’ a toxic one.”

    • “Addressing a conference of US Jewish organisations in Jerusalem, the Israeli prime minister said the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement was intended to lead to “the end of the Jewish state”.

      Yes, and that would be a godsend to the whole planet to see that racist cesspool known as Israel come to it’s overdue end. Netanballyhoo speaks of “antisemitism” when he is Ashkenazim, which is hardly Semitic – the Palestinians are the only true Semitic peoples in that land.

      All of this we all know very well, aye Veri. And I think the rest of the world is starting to catch on as well.

Bro N wants to call a monetary conference to replace the Fed…long overdue remedies beyond dancing the quenelle, but same same.

  43. I am repeating this comment in it’s entirety as written as an example of how excruciatingly ludicrous and spurious the tortured logic of Anti-Truthers can be.
    Behold the lame excuse for reasoning put forth without the slightest embarrassment by a constant toady of authority:

    “I read this article by Graham MacQueen years ago and his conclusions was basically this
    “As will be clear by now, my research refutes the claim that the FDNY witnesses
    as a body perceived with their own eyes that Seven was severely damaged and on that basis concluded that it was at risk of total collapse. My research shows that the great majority of witnesses accepted that Seven was going to collapse because they were told that it was going to collapse.”

    There are a large number of firefighters and there is a smaller number of firechiefs and commanders who command them. The firechiefs and senior officers are the people who assess situations and make the judgements and decisions about what course of action to take and this is passed on to the larger number of people they command. On 911 the firechiefs at the scene looked at WTC7 and judged that it was structurally unsound and might possibly collapse and they decided not to fight the fires and create a collapse cordon around the building. This information was then passed to the large numbers of firefighters on the site.
    The logic of Graham MacQueen’s arguement is that the validity of the judgement of firechiefs that the building was likely to collapse is affected by the fact that it was communicated to the people under their command. This would mean that if they told an even larger number of people , if they went on TV and told millions of people that they thought WTC7 would collapse, that it would undermine their assessment of the building even more because there would now be an even greater majority of people who were told it was going to collapse rather then made that judgement themselves. The best thing the firechiefs could have done ,according to that logic, was not tell anyone they thought WTC7 was going to collapse.”~A.Wright – February 19, 2014 – 7:10 PM

  44. “‘NOC’ evidence. Surely an investigation that arrives at conclusions by ignoring the evidence against those conclusions can’t be regarded as having credibility and can hardly be described as scientific.”~A.Wright — February 15, 2014 – 3:03 PM

    From the same link as my last comment. This assertion constantly repeated by agent Wright is simply a bald faced lie. There has been no evidence ignored in this case by the promoters of the ‘NOC’. There has been plenty of ignoring the actual evidence and testimony by the critics of the ‘NOC’ position.

    All one has to do is go through the arguments on the very site that this statement by Wright is made, to see with your own eyes the thorough treatment of said evidence.

    \\][//

  45. Wright, you say above at 4:16 PM about Graham MacQueen:

    “It’s not an argument that makes much logical sense and I find that surprising for someone who is an academic.”

    Frankly Wright, what you call “logical sense” is so unimpressive that I find your whole bag of tricks a sack of bullshit chips. What I find “surprising” is that you continue to patter on here, where you know all concerned with this site can see right through your flimsy rhetorical jabber.

    You have wasted enough of the forum’s, and my own time. Go tell it to JREF, or some place that does the same giggle dance you do. You have struck out.

  46. Most people are loath to admit it. But they would shut up too, if they were told their job was on the line, even if this is just intimated. Most will go along to get along, don’t want to rock the boat, make waves. Especially when there are fins darting about the dingy.

    Moral courage is rare. It seems even more rare than bravery under fire. And this may be because of the steady-state nature of moral courage, compared to the momentary act in an emergency. Desperation itself can appear to be courage.

    At any rate, normalcy – or at least the illusion of it seems to be one of the highest priorities of the herd mentality.

    I guess the bottom line is; the bad guys are going to win. The bad guys always win. It’s just a historical fact that the evil motherfuckers of this world stay on top.
    I don’t think this makes them ‘happy’, I think they are emotionally crippled, and that is what drives their ruthless behavior – but they win at the games, and they fuck things up for all with a sense of justice.

    I heard that quote by Gandhi, the one about “tyrants always fall’…. it’s bullshit, total delusional bullshit. Tyrants may fall to one another, but there’s always the tyrant that wins over the lesser tyrant. Just look at the history of India since Gandhi — wretched fucking place for most of the people.

    It’s amazing the chump-gene has lasted so long in evolution…aye? I suppose that is because someone needs to do the dirty work, the manual labor, act as servants.

  48. Imperial Brainwashing Detergent

    Since the 1953 CIA-MI6 coup in Iran, the West has been using the same formula to overthrow legitimate but uncooperative leaders: First, sabotage the country’s economy. Then bribe corrupt military officers and thugs and pay rent-a-mobs to create chaos in the streets. Next (this step is optional) incite violence by paying snipers to fire into crowds – and maybe set off some bombs. Finally, send the corrupt military units and gangsters to overthrow the target nation’s legitimate leader, murder or imprison his supporters, install a Western puppet in his place – and announce that “order has been restored.”~Dr. Kevin Barrett

    “Question mark headlines musing about the possibility of such a “cyber hijacking” serve to obscure or even deny a very important point.

  51. The whole idea of “rogue elements” as those who pull of these false flag crimes is ludicrous. Of course there is operational compartmentalization. But major agenda boosting events like 9/11 are deep systemic projects, officially condoned and planned.

    Those who still can’t seem to comprehend the military concepts of ‘need-to-know’ and
    ‘chain-of-command’ are either simpletons or disingenuous when they complain that, “everybody had to be in on it.”

    \\][//

  52. Police officers stopped a strange van near their temporary command post next to the still-smouldering twin towers while the chaos unfolded on the morning of 9/11. According to the official report of the Mineta Transportation Institute:

    “There were continuing moments of alarm. A panel truck with a painting of a plane flying into the World Trade Center was stopped near the temporary command post. It proved to be rented to a group of ethnic Middle Eastern people [in fact Israelies] who did not speak English. Fearing that it might be a truck bomb, the NYPD immediately evacuated the area, called out the bomb squad, and detained the occupants until a thorough search was made. The vehicle was found to be an innocent {?} delivery truck.”

    That such a truck, with “a painting of a plane flying into the World Trade Center” could be described as “innocent” in such a circumstance is amazing, in fact appalling; and leads any sane researcher to wonder at the machinations already at work in early investigative reports.

    \\][//

  53. I am convinced, after life long study and contemplation, that government is a racket. The concept itself defines a racket. Government is no less a ‘fictitious entity’ than a “corporation” – they are both imaginary creatures, and belief in imaginary creatures is mythology.

    A “constitution” is not a lawful ‘contract’. Each party to a lawful contract, must be a signatory to said contract. It is simply a form of blood liable to force non-signatory individuals into the bondage of a ‘constitution’. The idea that ignorant acquiescence, is lawful “consent” is a preposterous notion.

    Government power is seated in coercive force, not intellectual persuasion. Government itself is necessarily authoritarian.

    Bill Kristol Calls For Americans to be ‘Awakened and Rallied’ to War
    John Glaser, March 17, 2014

    Bill Kristol is not shy about his fetish for war. His latest piece at the neoconservativeWeekly Standard borders on self-parody in the way that it openly longs for a return to a time when Americans were eager to send the U.S. military off on unnecessary, imperialistic adventures.

    Kristol is frustrated by the “war-weariness” of the nation. He laments the reluctance on the part of the Republican Party to “challenge” “the idol of war-weariness.”

    “A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied,” Kristol cheers. “Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast.”

    People like Kristol are so blinded by ideology that they breach the etiquette which calls on elite commentators to camouflage their enthusiasm for war with superficial appeals to peace. He loves death and destruction and wars of choice and he doesn’t care who knows it! He is way out of the closet. That he can explicitly call for Americans to be “awakened and rallied” for new wars and not be embarrassed by the Hitler-esque tone of such despicable cravings is an indication of how lacking in self-awareness he is. His foreign policy beliefs are the kind that are not susceptible to reasoning or disconfirming evidence. His worship for the warfare state is religious in its persuasion.

    Kristol condemns using war-weariness “as an excuse to avoid maintaining our defenses or shouldering our responsibilities.” In other words, the fact that Kristol’s preferred policies were implemented throughout the Bush administration and it led to war crimes, hundreds of thousands killed, trillions of dollars wasted, region-wide instability in the Middle East, and clear geo-political losses for the United States shouldn’t deter us from continuing to spend more than the rest of the world combined on our military or from “shouldering our responsibilities” of ruling the world through force and war.

    To Kristol, war-weariness is a kind of ailment that Americans need to be cured of. He calls for war-weary Americans to be rallied to some unspecified military crusade just around the corner. Iran, Russia, China…anything will do, I suppose.

    I’m reminded of what Noam Chomsky wrote in his book Media Control about this ailment, or “malady” of being averse to extreme violence and war.

    “The Reaganite intellectual Norman Podhoretz defined it as ‘the sickly inhibitions against the use of military force,’” Chomsky writes. “There were these sickly inhibitions against violence on the part of a large part of the public. People just didn’t understand why we should go around torturing people and killing people and carpet bombing them.”

    “It’s very dangerous for a population to be overcome by these sickly inhibitions, as Goebbels understood, because then there’s a limit on foreign adventures,” he explains. “It’s necessary, as the Washington Post put it rather proudly during the [first] Gulf War hysteria, to instill in people a respect for ‘martial value.’ That’s important. If you want to have a violent society that uses force around the world to achieve the ends of its own domestic elite, it’s necessary to have a proper appreciation of the martial values and none of these sickly inhibitions about using violence.”

    That’s the real threat of our resistance to extreme violence. Anything that puts a limit on foreign adventures is like kryptonite to Kristol and his ilk.

    • Psychos like Podhoretz and Kristol are so lost in their psychosis that they can blatantly blare it out to the whole attentive world that they are simply mad. The frightening aspect to this is the legions of willing psychos who see nothing wrong in this and readily agree with this batshit crazy nonsense. And the fact that these lunatics are viewed as “experts on foreign policy” by the equally insane mainstream media puts the whole society in a state of hypnotized psychosis.

      How long this malaise has continued unabated is a great mystery to the still sane watching from the margins.

  55. 55 Things About America You May Not Know
    by Tyler Durden – 03/11/2014 20:32 -0400

    Is America the greatest nation on the planet? Before you answer that question, you might want to check out the statistics that I have shared in this article first. The reality is that the United States is in a deep state of decline, and it is getting harder to deny that fact with each passing day. Mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially we are a train wreck. Many that are “patriotic” attempt to put a happy face on our growing problems, but the truly patriotic thing to do is to admit just how bad things have gotten so that we can start finding solutions.

    If you truly love this country, then you should know that this nation needs a huge wake up call. We have abandoned the values and the principles that early Americans held so dear, and as a result our society is a giant mess. The following are 55 things about America that you may not know…

    #1 We are supposed to have a government “of the people, by the people, for the people”, but only 25 percent of all Americans know how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans know how many U.S. senators there are.

    #2 Americans spend more on health care per capita than anyone else in the world by far, and yet we only rank 35th in life expectancy.

    #3 Only one state in the entire country has an obesity rate of under 20 percent. 11 states have an obesity rate of over 30 percent.

    #4 Of all the major industrialized nations, America is the most obese. Mexico is #2.

    #5 Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese, but it is being projected that 42 percent of all Americans could be obese by the year 2030.

    #6 According to a new report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 31 percent of all food in the United States gets wasted. In case you were wondering, that amounts to approximately 133 billion pounds of food a year.

    #7 America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a wide margin.

    #8 In America, we even put 81-year-old women in prison for feeding the birds.

    #9 According to a Newsweek survey taken a few years ago, 29 percent of all Americans could not even name the vice president.

    #10 Americans spend more time sitting in traffic than anyone else in the world.

    #11 60 percent of Americans report feeling “angry or irritable”. Two years ago that number was at 50 percent.

    #12 36 percent of Americans admit that they have yelled at a customer service agent during the past year.

    #13 Only 30 percent of all Americans can tell you in what year the 9/11 attacks happened.

    #14 There are more “deaths by reptile” in America than anywhere else in the world.

    #15 Right now, 29 percent of all Americans under the age of 35 are living with their parents.

    #16 Average SAT scores have been falling for years, and the level of education that our kids are receiving in most of our public schools is a total joke.

    #17 According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, nearly 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. An astounding 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.

    #18 Americans spend more than 280 billion dollars on prescription drugs each year.

    #19 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year.

    #20 Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants than children in Europe are.

    #21 In the United States today, prescription painkillers kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.

    #22 America has the highest rate of illegal drug use on the entire planet.

    #23 According to the federal government, the number of heroin addicts in the United States has more than doubled since 2002.

    #24 It is hard to believe, but 56 percent of all Americans now have “subprime credit”.

    #25 America exports more weapons to other countries than anyone else in the world.

    #26 The United States has the most complicated tax system on the entire planet.

    #27 Corruption is rampant throughout our society. In fact, America leads the world in money given to fake charities.

    #28 America leads the world in soft drink consumption by a wide margin. Today, the average American drinks more than 600 sodas a year.

    #29 In 2008, 53 percent of all Americans considered themselves to be “middle class”. In 2014, only 44 percent of all Americans consider themselves to be “middle class”.

    #30 70 percent of Americans do not “feel engaged or inspired at their jobs”.

    #31 40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968 after you account for inflation.

    #32 Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6 Americans is on food stamps.

    #33 The marriage rate in the United States has fallen to an all-time low. Right now it is sitting at a yearly rate of 6.8 marriages per 1000 people.

    #34 In the United States today, more than half of all couples “move in together” before they get married.

    #35 America has the highest divorce rate in the world by a good margin.

    #36 America has the highest percentage of one person households on the entire planet.

    #37 100 years ago, 4.52 were living in the average U.S. household, but now the average U.S. household only consists of 2.59 people.

    #38 According to the Pew Research Center, only 51 percent of all American adults are currently married. Back in 1960, 72 percent of all adults in the United States were married.

    #39 For women under the age of 30 in the United States, more than half of all babies are being born out of wedlock.

    #40 At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.

    #41 In 1970, the average woman had her first child when she was 21.4 years old. Now the average woman has her first child when she is 25.6 years old.

    #42 America has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world by a very wide margin.

    #43 Approximately one out of every four teen girls in the United States has at least one sexually transmitted disease.

    #44 America has the highest STD infection rate in the entire industrialized world.

    #45 According to the latest figures released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, there are 20 million new sexually-transmitted infections in the United States every single year, and Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age range account for approximately 50 percent of those new sexually-transmitted infections.

    #46 As I wrote about recently, there are 747,408 registered sex offenders in the U.S. according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

    #47 America produces more pornography than any other nation in the world.

    #48 America has the most lawyers per capita in the entire world.

    #49 If you choose to be a “Constitutionalist” in America today, you may get labeled as a potential terrorist by the U.S. government.

    #50 America has the largest national debt in the history of the world. Back in 1980, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars. Today, it is over 17 trillion dollars.

    #51 According to the Congressional Budget Office, interest payments on the national debt will nearly quadruple over the next ten years.

    #52 Americans spend more money on elections than anyone else does in the world by a very wide margin.

    #53 65 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the U.S. system of government and its effectiveness”. That is the highest level of dissatisfaction that Gallup has ever recorded.

    #54 Only 8 percent of Americans believe that Congress is doing a “good” or “excellent” job.

    #55 70 percent of Americans do not have confidence that the federal government will “make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014.”

  57. The Claim for Indian Redress: How the West Was Stolen

    “Concealed behind the benevolent facade of the American mission civilisatrice is the brutal reality of invasion, slavery, forced relocation, genocide, land theft, ethnocide, and forcible denial of the right to self-determination wholly incompatible with contemporary understandings of U.S.-Indian history and with the notions of justice informing the human rights regime. It is perhaps impossible to overstate the magnitude of the human injustice perpetrated against Indian people in denial of their right to exist, on their aboriginal landbase, as self-determining peoples: indeed, the severity and duration of the harms endured by the original inhabitants of the United States may well exceed those suffered by all other groups domestic and international.”

    A. Genocide: “The Metaphysics of Indian Hating”

  58. “In the aftermath of the Civil War, the might of the U.S. Army was directed toward Indian eradication. Military and civilian contractors induced deliberate starvation by destroying primary food sources such as the buffalo, yet Indian tenacity necessitated more direct applications of force. One by one, the Seminole, Nez Perce, Lakota, Shoshone, Comanche, Apache, and other tribes were hunted, pursued, cornered, and murdered. A series of “massacres” were written in Indian blood on the pages of American history…”

  60. The White Man Speaks With Forked Tongue

    The Indian was so spiritually ascended to the Europeans that they couldn’t even conceive of the depth of vile dishonesty and bloodlust of the invaders.
    I have found the “Judeo-Christian-Muslim” belief system to be hypocritical and despicable. It is the most disturbing epistemology I have encountered. Those who embrace it apologetically do not consider the consequences this belief system has burdened this planet with.

    The revolting hubris of the Anglo-European paradigm is beyond my capacity to express adequately. And this is not merely a problem of the past, it is an ongoing nightmare.

After all that has been revealed of the national security state – that you would brush it all aside, as if none of this blatant prima facea evidence exists is astounding. You are a burlesque, tacky theater; and ridiculous, like some absurd caricature out of Kafka.

    This is not simple ‘insult’ Wright, it is a frank assessment of your turgid rank appeals to nonsense.

    “we never dreamed of planes flying into buildings”~Condi Rice, at 9/11 Hearings

    But of course they “dreamed of planes flying into buildings”, they are the ones that dreamed the whole scenario up. And this statement by Rice is utterly discounted by the fact of the known history of “threats made” thereof and contingency planning to blunt such situations. That Rice was lying through her teeth is without question. Her work with Zelikow was in the very topic of the creation of social myths.

    Absence of command authority
    The specific people who should have managed the air defense on 9/11 were absent precisely while
    the attacks were occuring. Even though they were available in the days before and after the attack,
    they were missing exactly in the crucial hours of the hijackings. For better understanding, this is
    what the protocol said before 9/11 in case of a hijacking:
    The air traffic controllers realizing the hijacking would inform their superiors, who in turn would alert
    the Hijack Coordinator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Hijack Coordinator would
    call the Pentagon, more precisely the Deputy Director for Operations (DDO) in the National Military
    Command Center (NMCC). The DDO in coordination with the Secretary of Defense then would give
    orders to NORAD, which would scramble fighter jets to intercept the hijacked plane. 1

    So the top people responsible would be:
     the FAA´s Hijack Coordinator
     the DDO in the NMCC
     the Secretary of Defense

    On 9/11 all three were absent from their command posts in the crucial hours between 8:14 a.m. (first hijacking) and 10:03 (last crash).

    Michael Canavan, the Hijack Coordinator of the FAA (and former Special Forces General) was not in the office but had flown to Puerto Rico;
    Lynne Osmus, his Deputy, arrived in the office only after all the planes had crashed
    General Montague Winfield, the NMCC DDO (who in 2012 became Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense), was not at his post between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.; Captain Charles Joseph Leidig, his Deputy, had just qualified for being DDO one month before; General Winfield had asked him the afternoon before if he would sit in as DDO from 8:30 on; Winfield returned to his post only after all planes had crashed.
    Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld stayed away from the NMCC, too, and arrived there no sooner than 10:30 a.m., after all planes had crashed.
    This seemingly well-timed absence of key people is still unexplained. It obstructed the air defense effectively.”
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    Why was there no air response on 9/11? Yes there are conflicting stories claiming various responses. However none of these add up, nor do they matter as none were effective, even if they did occur. What is most obvious to the diligent researcher is that the air response was purposely interfered with and conflicted by the high military command.

  63. At 9:36 NEADS received the message that a plane was 6 miles from the White House. That was the plane that would crash into the Pentagon in the following minute. According to the 9/11 Commisson Report Major Nasypany discovered only then and „to his surprise“ that the Langley fighters had flown in the wrong direction for already 6 minutes. 44 When his Weapons Controller Steve Citino then tried to call them directly, he was unsuccessful. Allegedly they were out of reach over the ocean.
    At 9:37 one of the Langley pilots contacted NEADS and asked for confirmation of the (wrong) course to the east. 46 That meant „Giant Killer“ had definitely not forwarded the requested redirection – for unknown reasons. NEADS instantly gave the correct heading to the Langley pilots (call sign: „Quit“) but got only this response from a nearby flying refueling tanker plane: „We are relaying to Quit 25, they can´t hear you.“ Only at 9:38 could a radio connection be established between NEADS and the pilots – precisely one minute after (!) the crash at the Pentagon. Only then the pilots learned that they should have flown to the Washington area right from the beginning – and finally turned.
    Major Nasypany had a hard time understanding all this. „Why‘d they go out there?“, he asked his people, according to the tape recordings. One of his controllers answered: “Because Giant Killer sent them out there.“

  64. “Giant Killer“, the responsible control facility, deleted all its tapes from the communication on 9/11. This was done routinely, as Commission staff member Miles Kara claimed.
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    No, what is done routinely is to present these blatantly obvious obstructions as plausible. As if it is conceivable that anyone would view the events of 9/11 as in any way “routine”. As if it is remotely possible for anyone directly involved to simply erase the record of their participation in the events of that day, and claim it was just routine.

    And this is just another in the countless loads of bullshit the authorities have shoveled out in their ‘official narrative’.

  65. Summary

    “September 11, 2001, was a quite remarkable day for the air defense system of the United States.

    The key people responsible for managing a hijacking were absent from their command posts right in the crucial hours.
    Important telephone and radio connections didn´t work until after the attacks were over.
    A hijacked plane disappeared in a radar gap, and nobody is willing to explain.
    A wargame projecting a hijacking was taking place simultaneously.
    The airbase that should have protected the capital was not able to send fighter jets within an hour of time.
    Interceptors from alert bases were scrambled with unexplained delays and then diverted several times.In short, a whole set of highly improbable events occurred simultaneously on that morning.”

  70. Anticipating the angle of “Plausible Deniability” that Wright is bound to use as an excuse for haunting 9/11 sites, which would be that he is simply doing it for the sake of justice, and to “defend the innocent”; this is not a convincing proposition.

    At the core of this position would be that these so-called “innocent” parties face jeopardy and are in someway dissuaded from their agenda. But that is one of the material evidences against these people; the fact that their stated aims for producing a “New Pearl Harbor” was to effect the results we see today. There has been no hindrance to their agenda in any way whatsoever.
    So what is the point in seeking “justice” wherein those who enjoy the success of their adventures already?

    And what are the results of such successes by the PNAC group and their associates? The brutal “constabulary duties” as envisioned in their planning document is and has been borne by the contrived enemies chosen for their full spectrum domination. And those “enemies” of this state are not only those in foreign lands, but the domestic western populations as well.

    It is therefore quite obvious that the “justice” that our visiting stooge is speaking to is the inverted Orwellian version of Newspeak and Doublethink.
    This too shows that we are dealing with the classic totalitarian paradigm of Orwell’s 1984, and Wright is playing a bit part as one of the legions of stooges and thugs attempting to break the bonds of dissidents.

    This leaves Wright little wiggle room, to narrow the issues to this rational analysis. Wright is a insignificant PRbot, a cog in a larger machine burying the planet in bullshit.
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    And now, after posting this on Truth and Shadows, we leave Wright with only one avenue of escape, a narrow alley really. All he has left to mew is more of the same type of melodramatic twaddle such as he wrote to Adam Ruff earlier in the tread. Blooming rhetorical turds, empty of all substance. Or perchance one of his sudden disappearing acts.

  73. “Objective 1. Determine why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed following the initial impacts of the aircraft (p xxxvii/39)”

    The extent of NIST’s explanation for the totality of the collapses and their many demolition-like features is simply that the total collapse was “inevitable” once a collapse event was “initiated”. A footnote in the Executive Summary reads:

    The focus of the Investigation was on the sequence of events from the instant of aircraft impact to the initiation of collapse for each tower. For brevity in this report, this sequence is referred to as the “probable collapse sequence,” although it includes little analysis of the structural behavior of the tower after the conditions for collapse initiation were reached and collapse became inevitable. (p xxxvii/39)
    [emphasis added]
    The footnote is a re-worded version of a paragraph in the text of the Report’s Draft, which read:

    “… although it does not actually include the structural behavior of the tower after the conditions for collapse initiation were reached and collapse became inevitable. (p xxxvii/39 of Draft)”

    That adjustment reflects the addition of a half-page section entitled “Events Following Collapse Initiation,” that combines a vague rendition of the pile-driver theory with incomplete, circular, and straw-man arguments against the demolition hypothesis. The addition of this section does not change the fact that NIST did not attempt to model, or characterize in any meaningful way the collapses.

  74. Hiding Engineering History

    “NIST’s Report gives the reader no clue of how unprecedented and unexpected the total collapses of these skyscrapers were. Rather, it suggests that total collapses of high-rise buildings are normal events, but usually happen less suddenly.

    In our cities, there has been no experience with a disaster of such magnitude, nor has there been any in which the total collapse of a high-rise building occurred so rapidly and with little warning. (p xli/43)
    Indeed, buildings are normally evacuated and cordoned off before being taken down by controlled demolition, so the statement is literally true. But the Report doesn’t contain the word demolition, so the statement seems crafted to mislead. In fact, there appear to be no examples of total collapse of skyscrapers anywhere in the world except through controlled demolition. There are examples of steel-framed buildings about 20 stories in height being knocked over by severe earthquakes, but large portions of earthquake-destroyed buildings remain intact. In contrast, the steel skeletons of the Twin Towers were shredded into thousands of pieces, and their non-metallic constituents and contents were pulverized into fine dust.”~Hoffman

    So just what is it that gives a stage magician the expertise necessary to judge scientific, or even logical argumentation? His expertise is in presenting illusions. His “debunking” of other “magicians” are primarily the presentation of illusions in another venue.

    The promotion of his organization as genuine “skeptics” is rather laughable if one actually reads the discussions at the JREF site. As Dr Greening finally concluded, the JREF community is very much a cult. There is so little actual technical discussion compared to the slurs and self congratulations that it quickly becomes a total bore to read through the threads offered there. Greening refers to the treatment of the 9/11 issues treated there as “the 9/11 fantasy site” – and Greening began his public career as a supporter of the so-called ‘gravity collapses’ of the WTC buildings.

    In my view the JREF forums are composed mainly of arrogant clowns. And I would gladly debate any one of them on a fair and open blog site, such as Truth and Shadows.

  77. As this issue of the Payne Stewart Lear Jet has been debated to exhaustion on another thread, let me put this as simply as possible:

    Wright is focused upon a footnote. He is stressing his interpretation of the data as if there is no controversy of the actual time. But there is controversy as to which time zone to consider if we look at it from the responding fighter jets originating time zone, or the time zone of the sighting. This is where complexity arises. But as I point out, this is a trivial matter regardless, it was not a national emergency situation. The matters of essence are the events that actually took place in the lack of air response on 9/11.
    As is outlined here in several of my postings, I will only point out that Wright avoids taking those points for dispute, but remains fixated on the Stewart flight. It is this sort of handwaving and cherrypicking what he will and will not address, his continued melodramatic rhetorical garbage, and his lack of a statement of purpose that make up his MO. Clearly the MO of a corporatist stooge.

  78. Loss of Oxygen Cited as Possible Cause of Jet’s Wayward Flight, Crash
    Lynn Lunsford

    10/26/1999
    KRTBN Knight-Ridder Tribune Business News: The Dallas Morning News – Texas
    Copyright (C) 1999 KRTBN Knight Ridder Tribune Business News; Source: World Reporter (TM)

    MINA, S.D.–A Dallas-bound Learjet carrying U.S. Open golf champion Payne Stewart knifed nose-first into a grassy field southwest of Mina, S.D., on Monday after a ghostly ramble across America with no one at the controls.

    All five people listed on the flight manifest — Mr. Stewart; his agents, Robert Fraley and Van Ardan; and pilots Michael Kling and Stephanie Bellegarrigue — were killed, officials said.

    A sixth person, a golf course designer from North Palm Beach, was also believed to have died on the plane, according to his employer, Nicklaus Design.

    Jack Nicklaus said Monday that Bruce Borland, 40, was flying to Texas because he wanted to design a course with Mr. Stewart under the Nicklaus Design banner.

    Authorities could not confirm that Mr. Borland was on the plane, and officials at the crash site said they could not tell exactly how many people had been killed.

    No one on the ground was hurt.

    Flight controllers frantically tried to contact the Lear 35 by radio, and a series of military jets scrambled to chase the plane as it streaked along, guided by its auto-pilot system until the fuel supply finally ran out.

    Capt. Kevin Bakke of the South Dakota Highway Patrol said he watched for three or four minutes as the plane sped across the sky, followed by two military jets.

    Then a deputy thought he saw a parachute, but it was the plane plummeting toward the ground, Capt. Bakke said.

    “It fell out of the sky,” he said. “There was no glide to it.”

    Investigators said everything they know so far about the flight is consistent with hypoxia, the condition caused by a lack of oxygen that leads to confusion and ultimately to death.

    “We figure these guys were dead for most of the trip,” one source said.

    The last contact with the plane came near Gainesville, Fla., when one of the pilots spoke with flight controllers in Jacksonville, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman.

    But there was no hint of trouble until the Lear failed to turn west over Florida’s panhandle for its flight into Dallas Love Field.

    Mr. Stewart, 42, decided to stop in Dallas to meet with developers building a golf course near the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco that would carry Mr. Stewart’s name.

    Mr. Stewart, who played golf at Southern Methodist University before beginning his successful professional career in 1979, was en route from his home in Orlando to Houston, site of this week’s Tour Championship. It is the Professional Golfers Association’s final tournament of the year for its top 30 money winners.

    “It is difficult to express our sense of shock and sadness over the death of Payne Stewart,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem in a statement issued from PGA headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

    “This is a tremendous loss for the entire golfing community and all of sports. He will always be remembered as a very special competitor and one who contributed enormously to the positive image of professional golf.”

    Fellow golfer Duffy Waldorf, in Houston practicing for the Tour Championship, told KTRH-AM that he considered turning around and going home when he heard the news.

    “He’s an irreplaceable guy, not just for his playing record,” Mr. Waldorf said.

    Mr. Stewart was among the best-known players on the professional tour, in large part because of his distinctive sartorial style. In a sea of baggy khakis, Mr. Stewart was singularly elegant in his trademark knickers and snappy English-style caps.

    This had been a particularly successful year for Mr. Stewart, who suffered a long, difficult drought through much of the ’90s before winning the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and then his second U.S. Open championship, sinking a 15-foot putt on the final hole to beat Phil Mickelson.

    “I’m proud of the fact that my faith in God is so much stronger and I’m so much more at peace with myself than I’ve ever been in my life,” Mr. Stewart said after the win. “Where I was with my faith last year and where I am now is leaps and bounds.”

    The Rev. Jim Henry, retired pastor for First Baptist Church of Orlando who used to minister to the Stewart family, was one of those who gathered Monday outside the family’s home.

    “He was a wonderful Christian who had Christ in his life and somehow in his death,” Mr. Henry said. “That brought a great sense of peace to his family in a difficult and tragic time.”

    Stewart and his wife, Tracey, had two children, Chelsea, 13, and Aaron, 10.

    The Learjet that carried Mr. Stewart and his party was operated and managed by Sunjet Aviation of Stanford, Fla. It was manufactured in 1976 and had made roughly 7,500 flights, company officials said.

    All required maintenance was current, the officials said.

    Determining just what went wrong could be very difficult because the plane was completely destroyed at impact, investigators said.

    The Learjet 35, a light twin-turbofan business jet that can carry eight passengers and a crew of two, is equipped with an oxygen system for emergency use, with masks for the crew and each passenger.

    It also has a depressurization warning system.

    Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board will be looking for anything that might explain how the plane could have lost oxygen without triggering the alarm or anyone noticing.

    If the plane rapidly lost pressurization for some reason, all the occupants would have had masks to wear until the plane reached a lower altitude.

    But if the oxygen system malfunctioned, the passengers could have been slowly starved of oxygen, causing hypoxia. That condition provides only subtle signs, beginning with a feeling of well-being or giddiness. Within a few minutes, confusion sets in, followed by unconsciousness and death.

    Such losses of cabin pressure are rare in private aircraft, experts said, but there have been similar cases.

    In 1980, newly named Louisiana State University football coach Robert “Bo” Rein died when a private plane veered 1,000 miles off course at extremely high altitudes and then plunged into the Atlantic Ocean.

    The flight was supposed to go from Shreveport to Baton Rouge. The plane crashed off the coast of Virginia.

    And in 1988, a Learjet bound for Addison Airport from Memphis, Tenn., overflew its target by hundreds of miles, crashing in Mexico.

    In both crashes, officials blamed hypoxia.

    Mina resident Lesley Braun, who lives about two miles from the crash site, said her husband saw the plane carrying Mr. Stewart spiraling down.

    “The plane had pretty much nosed straight into the ground,” Mrs. Braun said. “There’s not a lot of debris spread out a long ways.”

    The force of the crash compressed the plane to roughly the size of a large pickup truck. The only part clearly recognizable as a piece of aircraft was the tail cone, resting atop the wreckage.

    “If you didn’t know it was a crash site, you’d think you stumbled across a trash pile,” said Capt. Bakke of the highway patrol.

    The plane crashed in a field that was once wetlands, and Capt. Bakke said it’s possible parts of the wreckage are buried 15 to 20 feet deep.

    At a news conference Monday, President Clinton said he was profoundly sorry about the death of Mr. Stewart and the others who died in the crash.

    “It’s a very sad day,” he said.

    “I am very grateful for the work the FAA did and for the two Air Force pilots and the others in the Air Force that monitored this plane and made every effort to try to make contact with it.

    “They did everything that could humanly be done, and they were looking out for the safety of everyone involved.”

    There was some speculation Monday that the military jets were prepared to shoot down the Lear if it threatened to crash in a heavily populated area. But officials at the Pentagon strongly denied that possibility.

    Shooting down the plane “was never an option,” Air Force spokesman Capt. Joe Della Vedova said. “I don’t know where that came from.”

    Instead, according to an Air Force timeline, a series of military planes provided an emergency escort to the stricken Lear, beginning with a pair of F-16 Falcons from the Air National Guard at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., about 20 minutes after ground controllers lost contact.

    An F-16 and an A-10 Warthog attack plane from Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., took up the chase a few minutes later and were trailing the Lear when it climbed abruptly from 39,000 to 44,000 feet at 9:52 a.m. CDT.

    Fifteen minutes later, the F-16 intercepted the Lear, the pilot reporting no movement in the cockpit.

    At 10:44 a.m., the fighters from Eglin diverted to St. Louis for fuel. Fifteen minutes later, four Air National Guard F-16s from Tulsa, Okla., took up the chase, accompanied by a KC-135 refueling tanker.

    F-16s from Fargo, N.D., later scrambled to intercept the Lear jet, too. At noon Dallas time, the Fargo F-16s reported that the windows of the jet were fogged with ice and there was no evidence anyone was piloting the plane.

    At 12:14, the Lear jet began to spiral. It crashed about six minutes later.

    On 11 September Andrews had two squadrons of fighter jets with the job of protecting the skies over Washington D.C. They failed to do their job. Despite over one hour’s advance warning of a terrorist attack in progress, not a single Andrews fighter took off (or scrambled) to protect the city.

  80. Ridicule, or “ad hominem” is not proper argumentation. However, ridicule is a just assessment post-argument, when an opponent is shown to have made ridiculous arguments. At some point a disingenuous opponent must be dismissed, as it becomes obvious that it is futile to make valid points that are continually brushed off by hand waving and ignoring those points.

  81. From an interview with Van Romero, the director of research at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, on 9/11/2001.

    According to the article, Mr. Romero:

    ‘studies explosive materials and the effects of explosions on buildings, aircraft and other structures.’

    His Institute:

    ‘assists in forensic investigations into terrorist attacks, often by setting off similar explosions and studying the effects.’

    Van Romero reported that he had studied the videos of the WTC collapse and concluded that the towers were most likely destroyed by carefully placed demolition charges. He told the ‘Journal’:

    “It would be difficult for something from the plane to trigger an event like that.”

  82. “Despite the use of the prefix anti-, the terms “Semitic” and “antisemitic” are not directly opposed to each other, making the term a misnomer.
    While the term’s etymology might suggest that antisemitism is directed against all Semitic people, the term was coined in the late 19th century in Germany [1873 German journalist Wilhelm Marr] as a more scientific-sounding term for Judenhass (“Jew-hatred”), and that has been its normal use since then.”~Wikipedia

    Note that regardless of “normal use” – the term is still a misnomer – as I have been pointing out for years. By the reasonable standards of linguistics and logic, the term is technically meaningless. And this is one of the main points that Orwell made in his lifelong treatise on language and its popular misuses, which he termed ‘Newspeak.

  83. There comes a point in investigation where ‘circumstantial evidence’ combines into such weight that it becomes ‘substantial evidence’. The context entails reckoning with long strings of ‘coincidence’ that become simply impossible statistically.

    9/11 is such a case, wherein coincidences are piled to the rafters. Adding the weight of these to the weight of actual substantive evidence produces a case that is in fact beyond the jurisprudence of ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ to the point of near certitude that the official narrative is simply a tissue of lies.

    Having taken it upon myself to follow and study these issues from the very day that the events took place, I have come to such a conclusion of near certitude; for all practical purposes I am indeed certain that the events of 9/11 were the result of systemic forces, and that these forces remain and grow more dangerous each day.

    As I argued as long ago as 2008, there is no debate. The debate is over. All of the arguments and apologies for the official story have been destroyed. It is now up to the deluded now to open their eyes to see this.

    \\][//

  84. Of course, attendant to this logic, the realization that the so-called “War on Terror” is in fact a hoax, that it is a War Of Terror by those who propagate this hoax. And this is a very thinly veiled prospect considering the openly disclosed agenda of ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’.

    So to all the chumps out there wallowing in their cognitive dissonance, all I can say is:

    Welcome to the New World Order.

    \\][//

  85. And, for those who would take exception to my use of the term ‘New World Order’, my advice would be to take that up with the Council On Foreign Relations and The American Assembly who produced and published the 1992 book: RETHINKING AMERICA’S SECURITY – BEYOND COLD WAR TO NEW WORLD ORDER

    ISBN 0-393-03059-8

    \\][//

  86. It is my considered opinion that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is absolutely essential reading. It states the agenda most directly and in bold straight forward unapologetic language. It’s validity being self-evident as it describes what has indeed taken place in the “future” it’s authors have engineered. Any sane mind can see that this present paradigm is the exact model being described within the pages of the Protocols.

    The fruition and ends of this agenda should be no surprise to those who have understood this text, it is a grim situation for all but the elite cabal in control.

    \\][//

  87. More on the Protocols

    There was one central constant in all of the versions come to light throughout history, and that was the descriptions of the methods and techniques, the ways and means to accomplish world domination.

    There is a document by Wieshaupt that is practically word for word for several chapters as those found in the Protocols, and this document was written in the same year as the Revolutionary War in North America. Similar documents surfaced during the French Revolution, and again during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte. As revolution is one of the techniques of the Protocols, it is no surprise that they again surfaced during the Russian Revolution that ended with the “dictatorship of the proletariat”.
    It is this particular version that is claimed to be plagiarism and a fraud. Which given the nature of the writings, it is as I say, self evident as a prediction of the future that came to pass. And the only way to successfully predict the future is to engineer it.

    \\][//

    • The Controversy of the Protocols of Zion

      “The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu. … but elements of the text were plagiarized in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
      The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu (in the original French Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu) is a satire written by Maurice Joly, an attorney with political views that were conservative, monarchist, and legitimistic, which was first published in Geneva, Switzerland in 1864.”~Wikipedia
      . . . . . . . .
      Of course one of the major flaws in this assertion is that Joly’s work is predated by earlier versions of the Protocols. As I have mentioned the text from an “Illuminatie” manuscript by Weishaupt written in 1776. Another updated version again appears at the onset of the French Revolution. And during the reign of Napoleon the Protocols were a well known document. It is much more rational to suppose that it was Joly who plagiarized the Protocols.

      Another thing to note is that there is much more to the text of the Protocols than the slim volume of the ‘Dialogue’. There are long discussions of ways and means that are not in the Dialogue, there is the references throughout of “our lesser brethren”, which refer to the average Jew on the street, who are considered ‘privileged’ in some ways, but also considered expendable, and meant to be kept in the dark as to the true aims of Zion.

      But what is most important to these assertions by those attempting to frame the Protocols as a fraud, is the matter of context. Only the issues of similarities of dialog is addressed. What is always avoided is an assessment of what is actually being said, and how these techniques are obviously used and the agenda put forth has been an ongoing process even unto the present. All of this is obfuscated by the distraction of placing the Protocols in a context other than that in which they were written. They are in no way a ‘satire’, but a serious exposition on the means to global domination.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dialogue_in_Hell_Between_Machiavelli_and_Montesquieu

  88. From archived July 2001 NORAD website:

    “Overall, during the past 4 years, NORAD’s alert
    fighters took off to intercept aircraft (referred to as scrambled)
    1,518 times, or an average of 15 times per site per year. Of these
    incidents, the number of suspected drug smuggling aircraft averaged
    one per site, or less than 7 percent of all of the alert sites’ total
    activity. The remaining activity generally involved visually
    inspecting unidentified aircraft and assisting aircraft in distress.
    Appendix I contains additional information on the scramble activity
    at each air defense unit and alert site and on the continental air
    defense and air sovereignty missions.”

    \\][//

  89. I find it peculiar, even suspicious that one can find the most trivial information on the web, such as baseball statistics – who hit the most home runs, who the players were for the entire history of the sport, mundane bullshit like that – a snap to pull up.

    BUT, start looking for the number of intercepts of errant aircraft and the average amount of time from scramble to interception and it is a blank slate – as if there is no such activity. And this seems to have become the case only since the events of 9/11. The government and military are running silent-running deep under cover. Hiding anything they can.

    If this isn’t another RED FLAG to people, then the people are asleep at the wheel.

  90. ILLUMINATI PROTOCOLS

    “Now then, this satanic-plot was launched back in the 1760’s when it first came into existence under the name “Illuminati.” This Illuminati was organized by one Adam Weishaupt, born a Jew, who was converted to Catholicism and became a Catholic priest, and then, at the behest of the then newly-organized House of Rothschild, defected and organized the Illuminati.”~Myron Fagan
    http://jahtruth.net/illumin.htm

    “Now, let’s go back to the birth of the Illuminati. Adam Weishaupt was a Jesuit-trained professor of canon law, teaching in Engelstock University, when he defected from Christianity to embrace the luciferian conspiracy. It was in 1770 that the professional money-lenders, the then recently organized House of Rothschild, retained him to revise and modernize the age-old protocols of Zionism, which from the outset, was designed to give the “Synagogue of Satan”, so named by Jesus Christ [and who are “them which say they are Jews and are not” – Revelation /Apocalypse 2:9], ultimate world-domination so they could impose the luciferian ideology upon what would remain of the human-race after the final social-cataclysm by use of satanic despotism. Weishaupt completed his task May 1, 1776. Now you know why May 1 is the great day with all communist nations to this very day (May 1 is also “Law Day” as declared by the American Bar Association). (The celebration of May 1 [Baal/Bealtaine] goes much further back into history than this, and the day was picked for the ancient reasons, which comes through Paganism; Baal-worship and revolves around the worship of Satan. – David G.) That was the day, May 1, 1776, that Weishaupt completed his plan and officially organized the Illuminati to put the plan into execution. That plan required the destruction of all existing governments and religions. That objective was to be reached by dividing the masses of people, whom he Weishaupt, termed: “goyism” [nationalism] or human cattle into opposing camps in ever increasing numbers on political, social, economic, and other issues – the very conditions we have in our country today. The opposing sides were then to be armed and incidents provided which would cause them to fight and weaken themselves and gradually destroy national governments and religious institutions. Again I say, the very conditions in the world today.”~Ibid

    \\][//

  91. The ‘Ends’ are defined by the ‘Means’ used to reach them. So the ends do not ‘Justify’ the ‘Means’ as is proclaimed by those who also claim that ‘Might is Right’. ‘Might’ is simply force, it has no inherent quality of justness or injustice in itself.

    Both concepts of “Might is Right” and “Ends Justify the Ends” are rank excuses for vile despotism. They are simply lies. And these lies are the basis and credo of the conspiracy of Zion.

    \\][//

  92. “Now can you see why the vile Earl Warren and his equally vile co-Supreme Court justices issued that infamous and treasonous desegregation-decision in 1954? It was to aid and abet the plot of the Illuminati conspirators to create tension and strife between the Negroes and Whites.”~Myron Fagan
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Fagan cannot pretend that relations between the “Negroes and Whites” in this time period were in anyway just. And I object to the manner in which he states this. It is clear that the Illuminists took advantage of the sins of the “Whites” and used them against the bigoted racists, and played the unsuspecting “Negroes” for chumps in a dialectical game of divide and conquer. But no one needed to invent the strife already present, only exacerbate and manipulate it.

    “Probably so much money and energy were never before in history expended on the effort to suppress a single document [Protocols]. The period of 1920 marks the end of the time when the Jewish question could be impartially openly discussed in public.”

  96. PROTOCOL 1

    THE BASIC DOCTRINE

    Right lies in Might – Politics versus Morals – The End justifies the Means – “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” – The New Aristocracy.
    1. Putting aside fine phrases we shall speak of the significance of each thought: by comparisons and deductions we shall throw light upon surrounding facts.

    2. What I am about to set forth, then, is our system from the two points of view, that of ourselves and that of the goyim [i.e., non- Jews].

    3. It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and terrorisation, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare.

    4. What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What has served for their guidance hitherto?

    5. In the beginnings of the structure of society, they were subjected to brutal and blind force; after words – to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of nature right lies in force…”

    \\][//

    • PROTOCOL 1
      11. The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the goyim, but we must in no wise be guided by them.”
      . . . . . . . . . . . . .

      “Practical Politics” or “realpolitik” is hardly a secret in this world. It is referenced openly and without apology often enough, and is clearly the policy of all government.

      Written Law is clearly a sham [make-believe] and rule by caveat the standard. Those who fail to see this are enchanted by the necromancy of the Public Relations Regime.

  98. PROTOCOL 9
    2. “Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us, it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Herein much is revealed by the psychopathic maniacs who wrote the Protocols
    \\][//

  99. PROTOCOL 7
    1. The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces – are all essential for the completion of the aforementioned plans. What we have to get at, is that there should be, in all the States of the world; besides ourselves, only the masses of the proletariat; a few millionaires devoted to our interests; police and soldiers.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Perhaps it is redundant to point out how this has come to pass, and intensifies yet today.
    \\][//

  100. Those who deny the validity of the Protocols must also deny that the plan for global domination is well advanced – indeed practically to the point of fruition. In order to deny the second, one must deny that which is clearly manifest:
    It is the open and admitted strategy of the US to establish “Full Spectrum Dominance”. It then is incumbent upon those who deny the agenda to make an interpretation of the term ‘full spectrum dominance’.
    “Full spectrum” clearly means ‘in every aspect’. The word “dominance” is too blatant to quibble over. Thus “full spectrum dominance” is in fact a euphemism for ‘Totalitarian’.

    “Tyranny,” “Despotism,” “Totalitarian” … all these terms describe the same object.

    As these clearly are the aims, and the policy of the Western Empire, and as these aims have been articulated in the most straight forward manner in the text of the Protocols, long before these aims were achieved, it is impossible to frame the situation as a coincidence, or a matter of chance, as every particular, in ways and means for this achievement can be found in that infamous document.

    \\][//

  101. PROTOCOL 22
    POWER OF GOLD

    3. “Surely there is no need to seek further proof that our rule is predestined by God? Surely we shall not fail with such wealth to prove that all that evil which for so many centuries we have had to commit has served at the end of ends the cause of true well-being – the bringing of everything into order?”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Can these be the words of any other than a maniac?

    \\][//

    • Really, this must leave any sane mind in a state of awe, a sense of amazement that there are even minds mad enough to construct such a preposterous proposal. The blind blithering hubris displayed in P22-3 is insane spittle, the howling ululations of utter madness.

      \\][//

    • Again on P22-3:

      Here we have the confession by the perpetrators, of committing evil for centuries – yes indeed from the time of Deuteronomy to this very day. And their excuse is that this terror through the centuries is ordained by “God”.

      At this point it must be asked, What god? To what god do these maniacs appeal? As many questions, the answer lies in the question itself: Their “god” must be as insane as they are, a demon god, a devil.

      I do not accept that such an entity exists as a Cosmic Force or ‘deity’. It is the imagination of psychotic human beings that create such mythical forces as an excuse for their own mad ideas. And the “god” designed by these “chosen people” is the god of their choice, not the choice of any actual deity.

      \\][//

  102. It is quite simple to deduce; that is to infer from the general principles of logic and reason, assessing well known facts – that fanatic zealots such as Coren have no rationally defensible position.

    It is not their job description to ‘debate’ but to merely propagate the official line.

    The official narrative is by necessity defended by distraction, misdirection and bluster, for that narrative is of the whole a lie. A propagandist or ‘apparatchik’ for such a system certainly cannot speak frankly to the victims of such a system, and explain that the interests of these victims are purposely being crushed by the system; for if he were to do so he would be crushed as well – and post-haste.

  103. Early on Lippmann said the “bewildered herd,” his way of referring to the masses, must be governed by “a specialized class whose interests reach beyond the locality.” This class is composed of experts, specialists and bureaucrats. The experts, who often are referred to as “elites,” were to be a machinery of knowledge that circumvents the primary defect of democracy, the impossible ideal of the “omnicompetent citizen”.

    Philosopher John Dewey (1859–1952) agreed with Lippmann’s assertions that the modern world was becoming too complex for every citizen to grasp all its aspects, but Dewey, unlike Lippmann, believed that the public (a composite of many “publics” within society) could form a “Great Community” that could become educated about issues, come to judgments and arrive at solutions to societal problems.

    \\][//

  104. We can get a much clearer picture of the context of this particular struggle with seeking accountability for Mr Coren’s despicable burlesque, by understanding of the history of the Public Relations Regime. I capitalize this phrase because of the prime importance of its function as its core position in the system that it not only ‘represents’ but is an integral portion of. As is reminded by media’s critical experts, the media isn’t just a mouthpiece for the corporations, the media is corporations – it is a symbiotic entanglement that cannot exist as an ‘entity’ one without the other.

    With this in mind, I recommend that any who wish to “understand your enemy” take the time to read the founding documents, the best primers being, Edward Bernays’, PROPAGANDA, and Walter Lippmann’s, PUBLIC OPINION. In the interest of grasping the entirety of The System, to gain an understanding of the architecture of modern political power in it’s full panorama, I offer this short bibliography as what I have found to be essential writings on this subject: [SEE ABOVE: March 31, 2014 at 2:00 am]

  105. The Almond–Lippmann consensus, which is based on these assumptions:

    >Public opinion is volatile, shifting erratically in response to the most recent developments.

    >Mass beliefs early in the 20th century were “too pacifist in peace and too bellicose in war, too neutralist or appeasing in negotiations or too intransigent”

    >Public opinion is incoherent, lacking an organized or a consistent structure to such an extent that the views of U.S. citizens could best be described as “nonattitudes”
    Public opinion is irrelevant to the policy-making process.

    >Political leaders ignore public opinion because most Americans can neither “understand nor influence the very events upon which their lives and happiness are known to depend.”
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    I would assert that every one of these “assumptions” are due to the design {masquerading as analysis} of the very PR men {Lippmann and Almond} that made these spurious assumptions.

  106. Possible release of Israeli spy Pollard spurs uproar 01 Apr 2014

    “A reported U.S. offer to free spy Jonathan Pollard to breathe life into stagnant peace talks has politicians, settlers and activists on all sides in an uproar over whether the price is too high. Israel’s news media reported Monday that the Obama administration is weighing the release of Jonathan Pollard, an American Jew convicted of spying for Israel, in return for Israeli concessions to the Palestinians on settlement building and freeing of Palestinian prisoners. Pollard was convicted of spying after providing Israel with thousands of classified documents, including intelligence on the Soviet military, while working as a civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy in the 1980s.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Absolutely absurd…. making deals between two parties; Israel and the US, who both have a record of doing whatever the fuck they want regardless of contract or treaty is just more bullshit burlesque.
    The so-called “Peace Process” is meant by both parties to be a permanent ‘procedure’ that never reaches resolution – that is all resolved by “events on the ground”.

  108. As in all things ancient there is controversy. But as far as my opinion having studied this for quite a few years – in fact decades, is that it began as a Jewish document, that being a furthering exposition on Deuteronomy by the high rabbis of the Levites.

    There are things in the Talmud that reflect such thinking. However having said this, what comes from the modern period; that being the 1700s is the first document with the text arranged and presented in the same fashion as the Nilus document. That would be the text from the Weishaupt ILLUMINATI manuscript discovered on a Bavarian carrier on horseback who had been struck and killed by lightning. Often cited by the ‘Christians’ as an act of providence, or an “act of God’.

    I have read the side by side text of the Nilus compared to the Illuminati in a book titled, WORLD REVOLUTION OR the PLOT AGAINST CIVILIZATION by Nesta Webster. A book still in my library.

    The presumption is strong that the Protocols were issued, or reissued at the First Zionist Congress in Basil in 1897 by Theodore Herzl.

    Weishaupt was born a Jew, and was converted to Catholicism and became a member of the Jesuits. There is evidence that the newly formed House of Rothschild contracted and financed Weishaupt to bring the Protocols up to date in 1760. This is why researchers such as David Icke, and Mullins refer to modern Zionism as “Rothschild Zionism”. If one is familiar with the machinations surrounding the Balfour Declaration to establish the state of “Israel”, one finds the House of Rothschild at the core of this agenda as well.

    It is admittedly a complex history to untangle, and I think the premier book to read to understand this, the one that untangles this web most eloquently is Douglas Reed’s THE CONTROVERSY OF ZION.

    Nevertheless, I still assert that the prima facea evidence is the text of the work itself. While it is an arduous task to read through such obvious mania, the only way to grasp this is to read that text for oneself.

  109. The Argument From Incongruity

    “Power-over comes from the consciousness I have termed estrangement….It is the consciousness modelled on the God who stands outside the world, outside nature, who must be appeased, placated, feared and above all, obeyed. p9

    The language of power-over is the language of law, of rules, of abstract, generalised formulations enforced on the concrete realities of particular circumstances….in the worldview of power-over…value must be earned or granted….in the secular world, the worth we acquire is constantly rated against that of others… we internalise a primal insecurity about our own right to be, which drives us to compete for tokens of pseudo-value….Power-over motivates through fear. Its systems instill fear and then offer a hope of relief in return for compliance and obedience. p14”

    Power-over shapes every institution of our society. p9 (Starhawk 1990)

    Argument From Incredulity

    To simply assert that one does not believe a proposal as an argument in opposition to the proposal without basis, is not enough. One must have a rational explanation as to why the proposal is dismissed. In classical argumentum, such hand-waving dismissal is called an ‘Argument From Incredulity’.
    Such arguments from incredulity are most often shown to be derived by subconscious and irrational fear; often referred to as paranoia. It is an emotion unhinged from a rational base. This is how the Argument From Incredulity seems to be a symbiotic relation to The Argument From Incongruity, both are a form of estrangement as defined above.

  110. UNDERSTANDING THE MADNESS BY DECONSTRUCTION OF THE SUBTEXT

    By ‘subtext’ in the title above, I mean recognizing the unmentioned assumptions that drive the text. All views are supported by assumptions, whether they are stated or even consciously realized by the speaker or author of the views being expressed.
    It is a necessary part of epistemic self examination to recognize ones own assumptions, and to account for them consciously to build a congruent world view [epistemology].

    My last comment has two illustrations derived from terms of argumentation.

    • Perhaps it is my age, but I still don’t understand how calling a woman a “lady” is now taken as insult. Although I do admit that my comment was a form of taunt to Clare on Truth and Shadows. But it still makes me wonder …. ???
      This umbrage towards the phrase is a holdover from “radical feminism”, and one might think that the PC era, that is the political correctness regime that put so much pressure on strict language control, would be grasped and left by the wayside.
      But the fact that the whole ‘spat’ began with an honest apology for missing the PC taboos in my post before it, leaves me in even a deeper state of wonder. I tried to explain the best I could so as to preempt what seems to have been inevitable.
      So Clare got hot, and had to dole out some nannyshit. The very thing to bring out the satirical nature in me. And especially that my apology was dismissed, I did indeed give her the business.
      There is that same thing in Maxitwat that puts that spark in my poetic imagination, to use the satirical cats paw to incite hysterical response from a hot-headed rainbird sprinkler. It’s the rhythm of that “rat tat tat” of the paddle smacking the water that I enjoy.

      “But why so serious?” ~The Joker, from The Dark Knight
      Yes, a villains words, but in the threads context the question is germane; why so serious? I should have thought it was obvious that I was pulling her leg.
      Hmmm….perhaps even that allegory could be reinterpreted as sexist…Lol

      Aw WTF? – sometimes everything turns into absurd theater.

      I meant my apologies to Clare, and extend them to Craig. However the Maxitwat can fuck off.

    “Conspiracy Theorists bring up the fact that the towers were the first steel high rises to fall from fire in history. The fact is the towers had other firsts that day they never seem to include.
    There were a lot of firsts for the WTC. In all the history of high-rise fires, not one has ever been hit with a plane traveling 500 miles an hour and had its fire proofing removed [1]from its trusses. In all the history of high-rise fires, not one has ever had its steel columns which hold lateral load sheared off by a 767[2]. In all the history of high-rise fires, not one has ever been a building which had its vertical load bearing columns in its core removed by an airliner.[3]”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    I have numbered the points made in this argument, however all 3 points can be answered with a single answer; No proof.

    1. There is no proof that the fire proofing was removed from the trusses. It is proposed but not proven by NIST.
    2. Again, there is no proof that the steel columns were sheared off by the 767. It is again proposed but not proven by NIST.
    3. There is no proof that vertical load bearing columns in its core were removed by an airliner. It is only another supposition proposed by NIST.

    NIST in fact did not prove anything whatsoever. NIST proposed a theory based on faulty and fraudulent computer modelling that didn’t even attempt to explain the global collapse of the entire buildings. This fact means that NIST is in breach of it’s contract for not providing the answers it was charged with producing. The NIST 9/11 Reports were clearly scientific frauds, and anyone promoting such fraud are charlatans.

  115. What many people take to be “conspiracy theory” is actually ‘deep systems analysis’, an investigation into how things actually work, rather than relying on appearances. The catch here is that in sociopolitical matters there is much subterfuge and intrigue involved in struggles for power.

    As subterfuge and intrigue are bywords for conspiracy, the term “conspiracy” itself becomes a sub-section of systemic analysis.

    The architecture of political power must be viewed from a historical perspective in order to be fully understood. And the use of language must be fully understood, and the nature of what is called “psychology” – both personal and mass psychology must be understood. And all of these together must be understood as living processes that are not static in time, but do have patterns and cycles.

    For many on this site, what I am saying here is ‘primer’ level, ’101 class’ information. But not all of our readers will have gone through the elementary thinking to be up to speed on much of what is discussed here. And certainly those who blabber on about “tin-hat conspiracy nuts” haven’t even begun to think. If they are ever to educate themselves, they must begin constructing a rational epistemology, and grasp that they are going to have to do their own thinking. And this begins with reassessment of everything one has been taught by the system of control.

    The underlying message here is that the cops can get away with anything – even outright murder caught on video.

    I reject all the spurious conspiracy theories such as Scott Creighton’s on Everyman’s blog site: That the baby was Obama’s and all the other twaddle. The real motive is to instill fear and loathing into an already quailed populace. Senseless Violence is the most impressive tool for a police state, because it can happen to anyone.

  117. 9/11 and Other Lies

    The official explanation gave the neoconservatives the “new Pearl Harbor” that they needed for their program of invasions of Middle Eastern countries. The private armaments companies could look forward to decades of high profits. Wars always bring the military rapid promotions and higher retirement benefits. Private manufacturers of security equipment and spyware enjoy a rising demand for their products and have grown fat from the products sold to the TSA and NSA. Homeland Security has vastly expanded the federal workforce and administrative positions. The left-wing has proof of “blowback” caused by US interference in the internal affairs of other countries. The right-wing has proof that America has enemies against whom defense at all costs is necessary. The Israel Lobby has the US to overthrow the regimes in the way of Israel’s territorial expansion. The media has the story of the century with which to boost ratings and curry the favor of government.

    These are formidable interests arrayed against the mere obvious truth, obvious, that is, to any educated person. The 2,100 Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have no vested interest in any explanation of 9/11. Indeed, they are harmed by disproving, as they have done, the government’s explanation. None of them will ever again get a government contract, and many of their former clients have turned their backs on “those damn anti-Americans who don’t believe their own government!” Cass Sunstein, a Chicago and Harvard law professor who sold out his integrity, if any, to the Obama regime by accepting an appointment and arguing that the federal government should infiltrate the 9/11 truth movement with agents and set-up truth-tellers so that they could be discredited, possibly even prodding them into actions for which they could be arrested.

    In other words, the government’s story cannot stand the light cast by the facts and independent experts, and the government’s false story must be protected by shutting down the truth-telling experts. The government, Sunstein argued, needs to either gain control over these experts or to shut them down.”~Paul Craig Robberts

  119. Zionism does not begin with Herzl. This is only the modern era incarnation. Zionism began close to 4000 years ago with the curses of “God” in the book of Deuteronomy, when the tribes of the Levites became the first “scribes” to write down what had been the spoken myths of the combined tribes of Judea. Although Deuteronomy predates Genesis, it is called “the second book” – the first in the long history of deception perpetrated by the Levites. Genesis was written as an account for the purposes of placing the Leviticans in a genetically central role as direct decedents of Abraham.
    The major curse against “the Chosen People” was the demand that they not possess “the Promised Land” until they would obey the word of their “god”. Zion, is the term for this “promised land”. Zionism is the hope for the “return” to Zion. That a practical political movement took to making a plan to achieve such a return in the 19th century in no way the proximate beginning of Zionism.
    That this agenda is one of practical politics, it is properly removed from the issue of religion. By the same token, the benefits of such practical politics now has a more universal appeal to those who embrace the validity of ‘might as right’ and that the ‘ends justify the means’. The belief in such realpolitik is in no way exclusively a Jewish fixture. Neither is identity politics an exclusively Jewish activity. “Manifest Destiny” is no less the same apparition for the Amerikans.

    “Analysis has always been at the heart of philosophical method, but it has been understood and practised in many different ways. Perhaps, in its broadest sense, it might be defined as a process of isolating or working back to what is more fundamental by means of which something, initially taken as given, can be explained or reconstructed. The explanation or reconstruction is often then exhibited in a corresponding process of synthesis.”

  122. Port-Royal Logic, the first edition of which appeared in 1662 and the final revised edition in 1683. Chapter 2 (which was the first chapter in the first edition) opens as follows:

    The art of arranging a series of thoughts properly, either for discovering the truth when we do not know it, or for proving to others what we already know, can generally be called method.
    Hence there are two kinds of method, one for discovering the truth, which is known as analysis, or the method of resolution, and which can also be called the method of discovery. The other is for making the truth understood by others once it is found. This is known as synthesis, or the method of composition, and can also be called the method of instruction.

  125. THE HISTORY OF THE BATTLES OF ARMAGEDDON

    On May 9, 1457 BC, Egyptian troops led by Pharaoh Thutmose III defeated a rebel army led by the King of Kadesh at the Battle of Megiddo. It has the distinction of being the first recorded battle in history. The Battle of Megiddo is the first battle that was recorded in detail and for posterity. Pharaoh Thutmose III’s military scribe inscribed it in hieroglyphs.
    The ancient site of Megiddo is in the Jezreel Valley of northern Israel.

    Solomon built a fort on the site and in 609 BC King Josiah of Judah was killed there when opposing the march of the Egyptian King Necho II towards Assyria.

    The last Battle of Megiddo was fought September 19 to October 1, 1918, during World War I. Ending with the British having captured Jerusalem.

    The following is an excerpt from ALL THE PRESIDENTS’ BANKERS: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power by Naomi Prins

    “May 26, 1970, the “Big Three” bankers— Wriston and Rockefeller, along with Alden “Tom” Clausen, chairman of Bank America Corporation—appeared before the Senate Banking and Currency Committee to press their case for widening the loophole.

    They wielded fear coated in shades of nationalism as a weapon: if US bankers became less competitive, then by extension the United States would become less powerful. The competition argument would remain dominant on Wall Street and in Washington for nearly three decades, until the separation of speculative and commercial banking that had been invoked by the Glass-Steagall Act would be no more.

    Wriston deftly equated the expansion of US banking with general US global progress and power. It wasn’t so much that this connection hadn’t occurred to presidents or bankers since World War II; indeed, that was how the political-financial alliances had been operating. But from that point on, the notion was formally and publicly verbalized, and placed on the congressional record. The idea that commercial banks served the country and perpetuated its global identity and strength, rather than the other way around, became a key argument for domestic deregulation—even if, in practice, it was the country that would serve the banks.”Prins

  131. I have been enjoying reading your fritzing of the fretzer over the past few weeks. Thank you :-}]

    I am really not privy to any statistics that show the percentage and breakdown of Fretzer’s generation’s connections to the military, what with all the Korea and Vietnam and all that… But, whenever I look in to the background of these suspected ops and see that they had been a Marine, that fact alone becomes the tiny pea under 9 mattresses that makes one lose sleep.

    As usual, I can’t say that I have the time, energy or the enthusiasm to check on every little claim he makes (all the more reason why I enjoy reading your digging in)… But, I do consider myself a semi-pro judge of character, and quite fluent in reading between the lines. His argumentative technique follows a very recognizable pattern that two classes of people follow:

    One is the obvious trained operative on a conscious mission to disseminate disinfo, poison wells, propagate untruths, blur people’s minds, planting mines and traps along the way to cover their tracks, and throw off doubtful researchers…

    The other is the intellectually dishonest researcher whose livelihood, professional reputation and persona depend on the pseudo-scientific “research” they put forward while wearing a cloak of respect-demanding academic title. I have seen ones who are fully aware of the giant hole of lies and semi-truths they have dug for themselves, who then spend the majority of their time dancing around in order not to fall in it. But, there are also the ones whose intellectual dishonesty does not allow them to admit this fact even to themselves.

    The effect of both of these types in this second category, whether they are fully conscious of their behavior or not at all, is essentially the same on the discourse in the field they operate.

    Then, there is this Claire Keuhn character…. As a duo, Keuhn and Fetzer have quite a bit of web presence together. I am not sure if she is (or has become) his official sidekick or just an impressionable young lady who is a fan of Fetzer’s. For all I know, she could be his new handler… She operates a blog where her extremely long winded posts deal with some conspiracy stuff, but with a very limited angle. Her main conspiratorial interest seems to be the death and switching of Paul McCartney. But it is not her support for Fretzer that raises doubts in my mind, but more the proficiency she seems to have on ALL of the technical aspects of the Z film which are 110% aligned with every comment Fretzer makes.

    Regardless of who and what these two are, there is one inescapable commonality in their comments besides the technical “facts” they propagate as the do-all-end-all ultimate truth that can’t be argued against… And that is condescension! Both of them fall back on heavy condescension and insults as soon as they are asked a legitimate question, or any doubt is raised about their “facts”, or any dissent whatsoever is expressed, as you also mentioned in some of your exchanges with them. But, the pattern and the style seems so calculated that it is heavily reminiscent of the douchebag PhDs at that Pscychology of Conspiracy Theories site, and many other disinfo agents and intellectually dishonest people who roam the blogosphere.

    In summary, I suspect your impression of Fretzer from his “work” on 9/11 has been correct all along. He reeks to high heaven. For a so-called “scientist” he speaks in too many certainties, without having done the experimentation or research himself. He repeatedly fails to consider, let alone address, valid questions and arguments, to which he replies with dismissive condescension and a vicious circle of copy-paste answers, links and circular arguments not unlike ones that you get from dimwit “believers” who base the authenticity of the bible on God, and the existence of God on the bible. Normally, i would give him the benefit of the doubt that he is simply wrong… But the fallacies he repeatedly engages in are a little hard to swallow, coming from a Princeton magna cum laude and all….

    (I wanted to share some of my observations with you and show some support for your latest efforts, but was worried I would be diluting your JFK and Fretzer threads.. So, I chose to post this in your yada yada thread)
