Invasion of the Data Snatchers 
Big Data and the Internet of Things Means the Surveillance of Everything

You can almost hear the ominous narrator’s voice from an old “Twilight Zone” episode saying, “Soon the net will close around all of us. There will be no escape.”
Except it’s no longer science fiction. It’s our barely distant present.


Home Invasion 

“[W]e estimate that only one percent of things that could have an IP address do have an IP address today, so we like to say that ninety-nine percent of the world is still asleep,” Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s Chief Technology and Strategy Officer,told the Silicon Valley Summit in December. “It’s up to our imaginations to figure out what will happen when the ninety-nine percent wakes up.”

Yes, imagine it. Welcome to a world where everything you do is collected, stored, analyzed, and, more often than not, packaged and sold to strangers — including government agencies.


Commercial Stalking

Physical sensors connected to the Internet are increasingly everywhere, ready to detect a unique identifier associated with you, usually one generated by your smartphone, then log what you do and leverage the data you generate for insight into your life. For instance, Apple introduced iBeacon last year.  It’s a service based on transmitters that employ Bluetooth technology to track where Apple users are in stores and restaurants. (The company conveniently turned onBluetooth by default via a software update it delivered to Apple iPhone owners.) Apps that use iBeacon harvest a user’s data, including his or her location, and sometimes can even turn on a device’s microphone to listen in on what’s going on.

  1. Among the newer theories of evolution is what is called ‘Punctuated Equilibrium’ which describes how exponential leaps in the morphology of a species can take place in as little as a few years – perhaps even quicker in certain circumstances.

    From 1948, when 1984 was penned, to the 21st century that has manifest as now, there have occurred several large leaps of technological evolution in exponential terms that could be characterized as ‘punctuated equilibrium’. Technological advances simply beyond the human imagination of Orwell’s day have occurred, and continue at an ever increasing pace. The Panopticon has been born that has so long been predicted in dystopian speculation.

    Today it is in fact a 21st Century Dystopia, the Earth become a Planet of Terror.

  2. It’s the Corporate State, Stupid

    “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” – Benito Mussolini.

    David G. Mills

    11/10/04 “ICH” — The early twentieth century Italians, who invented the word fascism, also had a more descriptive term for the concept — estato corporativo: the corporatist state. Unfortunately for Americans, we have come to equate fascism with its symptoms, not with its structure. The structure of fascism is corporatism, or the corporate state. The structure of fascism is the union, marriage, merger or fusion of corporate economic power with governmental power. Failing to understand fascism, as the consolidation of corporate economic and governmental power in the hands of a few, is to completely misunderstand what fascism is. It is the consolidation of this power that produces the demagogues and regimes we understand as fascist ones.

    While we Americans have been trained to keenly identify the opposite of fascism, i.e., government intrusion into and usurpation of private enterprise, we have not been trained to identify the usurpation of government by private enterprise. Our European cousins, on the other hand, having lived with Fascism in several European countries during the last century, know it when they see it, and looking over here, they are ringing the alarm bells. We need to learn how to recognize Fascism now.

    Dr. Lawrence Britt has written an excellent article entitled “The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism.” An Internet search of the number 14 coupled with the word fascism will produce the original article as well as many annotations on each of the 14 characteristics of fascism that he describes. His article is a must read to help get a handle on the symptoms that corporatism produces.

    But even Britt’s excellent article misses the importance of Mussolini’s point. The concept of corporatism is number nine on Britt’s list and unfortunately titled: “Corporate Power is Protected.” In the view of Mussolini, the concept of corporatism should have been number one on the list and should have been more aptly titled the “Merger of Corporate Power and State Power.” Even Britt failed to see the merger of corporate and state power as the primary cause of most of these other characteristics. It is only when one begins to view fascism as the merger of corporate power and state power that it is easy to see how most of the other thirteen characteristics Britt describes are produced. Seen this way, these other characteristics no longer become disjointed abstractions. Cause and effect is evident.

    For example, number two on Britt’s list is titled: “Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights.” Individual rights and corporate rights, at the very least conflict, and often are in downright opposition to one another. In the court system, often individuals must sue corporations. In America, in order to protect corporations, we have seen a steady stream of rules, decisions and laws to protect corporations and to limit the rights of the individual by lawsuit and other redress. These rules, decisions, and laws have always been justified on the basis of the need for corporations to have profit in order to exist.

    Number three on Britt’s list is the identification of scapegoats or enemies as a unifying cause. Often the government itself becomes the scapegoat when the government is the regulator of the corporations. Often it is lawyers or administrators who take on the corporations. Often it is liberals who champion the rights of individuals, or terrorists who might threaten state stability or corporate profit. Any or all may become scapegoats for the state’s problems because they pose problems for corporations.

    Other notable characteristics of fascism described by Britt which are directly produced by corporatism are:

    < The suppression of organized labor (organized labor is the bane of corporations and the only real check on corporate power other than government or the legal system);

    < Supremacy of the military (it is necessary to produce and protect corporate profits abroad and threats from abroad);

    < Cronyism and governmental corruption (it is very beneficial to have ex-corporate employees run the agencies or make the laws that are supposed to regulate or check corporations);

    < Fraudulent elections (especially those where corporations run the machinery of elections and count the votes or where judges decide their outcomes);

    < Nationalism (disdain for other countries that might promote individual rights);

    < Obsession with national security (anti-corporatists are a security risk to the corporate status quo);

    < Control of the media (propaganda works);

    < Obsession with crime and punishment (anti-corporatists belong in jail); and

    < Disdain for intellectuals and the arts (these people see corporatism for what it is and are highly individualistic).

    All of these characteristics have a fairly obvious corporate component to them or produce a fairly obvious corporate benefit. Even Britt’s last two characteristics, the merger of state with the dominant religion and rampant suppression of divorce, abortion and homosexuality produce at least some indirect corporate benefit.

    In sum, it’s the corporate state, stupid.

    As I have pondered what could be done about America’s steady march toward the fascist state, I also have pondered what can be done internally to stop it. The Germans couldn’t seem to do it. The Italians couldn’t seem to do it. The only lesson from recent history where an indigenous people seemed to have uncoupled the merger of economic power with governmental power is the French Revolution. The soft underbelly of consolidated economic power is that the power resides in the hands of a few. Cut off the money supply of the few and the merger between economic power and government becomes unglued. The French systematically took out their aristocracy one by one. It was ugly; the French couldn’t seem to figure out when there had been enough bloodletting to solve the problem.

    The thought of an American twenty-first century French Revolution is ugly. But the thought of an American twenty-first century fascist state is far uglier. It would be a supreme irony that the state most responsible for stopping worldwide fascism would become fascist 60 years later. But far worse than this irony is the reality that an American fascist state with America’s power could make Nazi Germany look like a tiny blip on the radar screen of history.

    For some years now we have lived with the Faustian bargain of the corporation. Large corporations are necessary to achieve those governmental and social necessities that small enterprises are incapable of providing. The checks on corporate power have always been fragile. Left unchecked, the huge economic power of corporations corrupts absolutely. Most of the checks are badly eroded. Is there still time to get the checks back in balance? Or will we be left with two unthinkable options?

    “Not one of [the delegates to the Constitutional Convention] came to Philadelphia believing that he was there to create a new government—or reform an old one—only for the benefit of thirteen states on the Atlantic. (p. 43)”~Lawrence Goldstone

    It should be clear from the fact above that the Constitutional Convention was a Coup de Grâce by the Federalists, the Banker’s moles Hamilton and Jay in particular. The bankers here mean the central banks of Europe, headed by the Bank of England and it’s network of corporations. In other words a corporatist oligarchy. This is essentially fascism, as defined by Mussolini a couple centuries later. The symbol of the Fasces, bundled rods and a hatchet in bold relief in the chambers of the US Congress in DC is a significant reminder of this.

    The promise within the Declaration was that the States united would evolve into a confederacy of functioning republics. Always a tenuous proposition considering the powerful forces arrayed against the idea. It was the Convention and the Constitution it produced that put the final nail in the coffin of the republican quest; The spurious rhetoric of popular history aside.

    It is obvious from the nomenclature of succession, that the South was attempting a return to the promise of the Declaration, they were seen as and self-identified as Confederates. The Union side was the Federal government. As in all wars, each side was financed for a dialectic struggle manipulated by the Banking Cabal.

    Deducing further back we should look for the forensic traces of the fingerprints of the Banking Cabal’s probable manipulative influence in the Declaration and the revolution it spawned. We then consider the Bavarian Illuminati, the version of the Protocols penned by Weishaupt in this period, and the subversion of the Masonic lodges that was underway, both in Europe and the Americas. This leads us to the curious case of the madness of King George, which just happens to coincide with the years of the rebellion against Britain in the colonies. The case having been made that the King was being poisoned by the court physician, a known Mason. Add to this the way that the British Army in America seemed to be ‘throwing the fight’, making the most obvious strategic military blunders. That this was the result of folly as Barbara Tuchman hypothesizes seems untenable given all of these examples of circumstantial evidence to the contrary.

    Now we can even trace back further to Francis Bacon and the New Atlantis (1626.) to find further clues supporting the case being put forward here. Therein Bacon posits the existence of the western hemisphere and the continents in existence there.
    We can move forward to Columbus, or Columb “the Dove of Christ” and the vessel that carried him to the new land beyond the waters, Santa Maria {Mother Mary}, an allegory of the Ark of Noah. Plus the fact that ‘America’ was originally referred to as Columbia. The Federal Capitol is in The District of Columbia.


  4. ‘The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam’ by Barbara Tuchman is a theory, not ‘truth’ written in stone.

    The lesson on folly drawn from the Trojan war can be disputed by an understanding of the work of Julian Jaynes in the ‘Origins of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind’.

    The lesson on folly drawn from the Revolutionary War in America can be disputed with the information offered above, in the outline of the GRAND CONSPIRACY.

    But the most obvious criticism comes from the contemporary history of the Vietnam War.
    We are closer to it, and can be more sure of the facts due to this. This war was designed in such a way as neither ‘side’ would win. It was designed as a meat-grinder and profit generator. It was a charade, as all wars can ultimately be proven to be. An agenda created by design can be veiled by the concept of folly. Folly is the revetment, a “modified limited hangout”, or fall back position for failure in all or at least most covert operations. “Intelligence Failures” are the excuses given for the massive ‘coincidences’ found in the events of 9/11.

    Design masquerading as Diagnosis often uses ‘folly’ as an excuse and faint to draw attention away from the active agenda of political power.


    • Like ‘Coincidence Theory’, ‘Folly Theory’ collapses under the weight of the statistically unlikely to the point of shear impossibility. The likelihood of a purposeful agenda is by far the strongest case when all things are considered.


    • “With more than 2.2 million Americans currently in prisons, the incarceration rate of the United States is the highest in the entire world at 743 out of every 100,000 people, comprising 25% of the world’s total inmate population and near four times the rate of the next nation. All other countries on earth imprison far less with the next highest nation’s rate at just over 200 out of 100,000 people.”~Joachim Hagopian


  5. “Some of the Congressional report’s findings from its four year investigation were released to McClatchy, indicating that the CIA had previously lied to the committee in efforts to cover up its widespread use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” that included waterboarding, electrode shock to genitals, ripping out of fingernails, hanging upside down for hours on end.

    Predictably the CIA still insists that its methods never constituted torture nor were ever illegal. But the Senate findings refute the CIA’s claims, concluding that the CIA willfully evaded all oversight mechanisms operating without approval from either the Department of Justice or even its own CIA headquarters. The bottom line to all the torture and abuse inflicted on so many innocent victims throughout the world is that the US produced next to no useful information in its war on terror.”~Joachim Hagopian


  6. Perpetual Apocalypse Now

    “Like the Roman Empire nearly a millennium ago, America
    is falling fast. We are currently in a constant crisis mode
    as the American Empire crumbles and burns. But instead of
    Rome burning, this time it’s Washington DC, Detroit and
    virtually all our major urban centers throughout the United
    States. Instead of investing in its own people and its aging
    infrastructure, creating thousands of desperately needed
    jobs, our federal government has chosen to drain our
    national economy, bleeding middleclass taxpayers dry with
    two wars lasting longer than any prior wars in American
    history. Our tax dollars are paying for a gluttonous and
    corrupt military industrial complex that is now firmly in
    control but spinning us out of control in megalomaniacal
    global destruction. The defense contractors like Lockheed,
    Halliburton, Boeing, Northrop, General Electric and General
    Dynamics have scored record breaking profits supplying the
    American Empire with military hardware and weaponry that
    have squandered our tax dollars. Too many of their weapons
    either do not work properly or are not needed at all. But
    Congressmen worried over lost jobs in their districts and a
    “more is better” Pentagon philosophy feed a growing military
    industrial complex with an insatiable appetite for record
    breaking profits. As a result of this gluttonous orgy of
    misspent taxpayer dollars, America spends more money on its
    military than the rest of the world combined. Since 9/11
    Pentagon brass are also wielding more power than any
    previous time in American history. US generals, politicians
    and global corporations have sold the American people on a
    permanent national security state at home and a permanent
    war state around the world. Meanwhile, the corporate
    controlled media acts as a disinformation and propaganda
    mouthpiece keeping Americans uninformed in the dark while
    exploiting our fear that a terrorist is lurking around
    every corner. Like a highly toxic, cancerous affliction that
    is devouring itself until it implodes, the sprawling
    military industrial complex has betrayed all us Americans.”
    ~Joachim Hagopian

  7. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
    ~George Santayana

    And Homo Vishnu Amerikanus bleats, “gawblesmerka”


    • The issue of the Bundy Standoff is one of those that falls into the category of the false concept: ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’.

      I think we would do well not to fall into such a cognitive trap as this. It is part of the Hegelian Dialectic to see things in pure black and white, and refuse to nuance our thinking with a broader perspective.



  8. Perhaps it is that I take this personal, as I was close friends of a desert tortoise for a couple of years when I lived in E San Diego. He lived in my backyard most of that time.
    But he was an escape artist, and would sometimes be delivered to me by a neighbor after he had burrowed under the fence and gotten into their yard.

    One day I was driving to the corner store for ciggies when I saw ‘Turtle Guy’ which is what we called him. He was trucking down the sidewalk headed to the corner. The cross street was a lot busier than our cul de sac, and there is a good chance he would have been run over by a car attempting to cross. So I stopped the car, jumped out and retrieved him and took him back home, and left him in the house while I went to the store.

    When my wife of the time got home from work I told her about the little adventure our guest had had that day. We both agreed that it was time to get him to a safer environment. She made a few calls to a couple nurses she worked with who lived farther out in the desert area away from town. One of these offered to take in ‘Turtle Guy’, explaining that just a short way from where she lived was a community of tortoise that she could take him out to so he could get acquainted.

    It is my view that such creatures do need our protection. I think that this responsibility trumps financial issues. What we have with the Bundy situation boils down to financial issues – his livestock, his profit in the business of ranching etc. He has a ranch. If the ranch isn’t large enough to contain his livestock – then fuck him. The damage done by cattle in the public lands is substantial. If it were ‘oil men’ destroying the environment there, those who have sided with Bundy would certainly see this in another light. The cattle industry is no less industry than the oil industry, the timber industry, or any other that despoils the natural world.


  9. Left Wing Dialectical posture:
    “Do laws no longer apply when the radical right no longer agrees?” said Ryan Lenz, a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors militia group activity.”

    This is of course rhetoric in blithertone. The honest question is; Do laws no longer apply when the government itself is unconstitutionally ultra vires? When there is no longer even a pretense to adhering to constitutional restraints on authority, what is left of “the law”?
    . . . . . . . . . . .

    Right Wing Dialectical posture:
    “Few people had heard of Bundy and his ranch until a few days before the stand-off. Right-wing websites and advocacy groups such as Americans for Prosperity, founded by one of the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, cast his tale in a folksy David and Goliath light and helped spread it online.”

    The fact that a Koch brother is involved in the PR of this incident is strong support for the contention that this whole issue is being manipulated, and is part of the agenda being driven to a totalitarian police state. This can be seen as akin to the ‘color revolution’ template used throughout the rest of the world.



  10. The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, still in effect {?}, was passed to prevent U.S. military personnel from acting as law enforcement agents on U.S. soil.

    The reasoning behind this act must be updated however. Now that Police departments and other enforcement agencies are armed as heavily as the military, and engaged in what is essentially military assaults on the citizens of the nation, it is a situation that Posse Camitatus does not technically cover, leaving the door open to the same sorts of abuses that was feared from regular military forces.

    I still hold that larger industrial sized ranchers such as Bundy are no different than the large corporations that despoil natural habitat.
    It is not a choice of which is right when both sides are wrong.

    What is really going on here? Just what I described earlier, a Hegelian dialectical pincer movement. And the larger Amerikan public hasn’t a clue as to what is happening.


  11. Here is a video with information in it that has caused me to adjust my position quite a bit, to be more in favor of the Bundy position than what I have expressed so far.
    [Thanks to Veri for providing this to me.] \\][//

  12. Systems Analysis and Forensic History

    One builds a data set through deduction, then builds hypothesis through synthesizing theory by induction. In the study of history through the forensic lens, one finds that the farther one goes back from current events the more is known, as much is revealed after the fact as information is collated. At a certain point, by using this process, one can arrive at a grand overarching theory of history. What is discovered is an agenda that has been ongoing and evolving for several centuries. The agenda is spoken of by those who designed it in great detail.

    But PR is developed to characterize these plans as simply myths made up by ‘conspiracy theorists’. The same propaganda front for the planners of the agenda promotes the absurd idea that powerful people do not make plans for their benefit in secret behind closed doors. It is also asserted that groups of powerful people and organizations do not network with one another to achieve common goals.

    That such a proposition is preposterous is easily grasped once one begins to think for themselves. It becomes obvious that the entire system itself is the construct of a grand conspiracy. It is the direct analysis of the system that provides the data that proves this.


    • For more clarity on my position here, I do not conflate Mr Bundy as being in anyway associated with the Koch brothers or any of their enterprises. What I am saying is that Koch is attempting to ‘steal the thunder’ of this event and frame it to the advantage of the false right paradigm.

      It is such framing that tends to the ever driven agenda to synthesize the all powerful god-like state.

      And every step mankind takes into the future takes this path. This is because what really happened, what led to it, and the actual context it took place in is not known to the mass of the public at large. What is known to them is the perception molded by the Public Relations regime, and this is the engine which drives the synthesis. Until there is systemic change the arc of the path will remain the same. This presents a catch 22, as there will be no systemic change without the demand of the mass of the people. But they embrace that which they perceive as the way it is.


  13. John Judge RIP – April 2014

    John is an author, historian, and researcher who, since the sixties, has examined the hidden history of the Cold War, U.S. intelligence agencies, and international fascism, naming the key players in control of our society and describes their plans to gain that final frontier — “the space between our ears.”

    While doing extensive research in mass and individual mind control, Judge uncovered what he believes to be the real story behind the murders at Jonestown, Guyana, and links to military intelligence and a CIA program called MK-ULTRA. He also found numerous connections between people known to be involved with Jonestown as well as the Martin Luther King murder. He was the first researcher to raise questions and unearth suspicious evidence in the deaths of Judge William Miller (on James Earl Ray’s appeal court), Jessica Savitch, Abbie Hoffman, and Dorothy Hunt (wife of Watergate figure E. Howard Hunt).

    As an avid investigator into the Kennedy Assassination, John Judge found links between the characters, assassins, funding and operations in the subsequent murders of Robert F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and numerous other public figures and eye witnesses to the killings.

    Judge’s research includes detailed examination of the entire Warren Commission Report and Hearings, 26 volumes, some 300 cubic feet of records in the National Archives on the internal meetings and works of the Commission, related books, and thousands of articles by the critics of the report, as well as those who defend it. . . .

    Articles by John Judge have been printed in publications such as Utne Reader, Critique, Spy, and Newsweek, and he is the author of the book, Judge For Yourself. His Jonestown research was recently published by Feral House in Secret and Suppressed. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and has lectured at many colleges and universities, including the University of Pennsylvania, Amherst College, University of Dayton, and the University of California-Santa Barbara.



  14. “But then that is the globalist agenda – thinning the human herd down from near seven billion currently to as low as just half a billion. That means 13 out of 14 of us alive today according to their diabolical oligarch plan simply must die within the next few years. And what better way to rapidly kill off the human population than taking full ownership and control over the earth’s limited diminishing water supply.
    The human suffering caused globally by wealthy private corporations from North America and Europe exploiting people from Third World nations for pure profit is nothing less than pure psychopathic evil.”~By Joachim Hagopian
    Global Research, April 20, 2014


    “Mass extinction of plant and animal species that have thrived on this planet for millions of years is silently, invisibly taking place every single day right before our eyes. At ever-perilous stake now is our own human species as well as all living species inhabiting this earth, suffering at the hands of national governments that have corruptly co-opted with the banking cabal-owned transnational corporations and for too many decades been systematically destroying the richly diverse natural ecosystems of all earthly life forms on an unprecedented scale.”~Ibid


  15. “Paper is poverty, it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.”~Thomas
    Jefferson, 1788

    The truth may frighten you, but it is the truth nevertheless. And the truth is, there is no legitimate government in the US.


  16. A recent scientific study by Princeton and Northwestern universities, which has gone somewhat under reported in the mainstream media, concludes that the US is now a fully fledged oligarchy.
    The paper, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups and Average Citizens, notes that America is no longer even a Democracy, which begs the question, how far removed is the country from being the Republic envisioned and painstakingly established by Benjamin Franklin and the founding fathers.
    “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence,” the study notes.

    The study points toward the conclusion that the US is nothing more than an illusion of democracy.

    The authors of the study, Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page concur that the will or opinion of the majority in the US has no effect on the way government is run.
    “The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”



    • “The paper, entitled..” Watson

      Papers are not entitled to anything. Papers, books, manuscripts, movies, etc. are ‘titled’, not “entitled”.

      Furthermore, when a leading establishment university allows such “revelations” to be published under their auspices, it is a sure sign that something is being veiled by such.

      What that is which is being veiled in this instance is what I have been discussing on this blog for a long time: REALPOLITIK, or ‘Practical’ and ‘Expedient’ politics. And how this has been how Amerika has been run from the very beginning of the ‘Constitutional Republic’. It may have taken close to 2 and a quarter hundred years for sufficient fruition of a corporatist oligarchy to be firmly enough in place to admit to it – but it is only out of the closet now, it is nothing new.


      • The new paper ‘Testing Theories of American Politics’ can in fact be fairly characterized as a ‘revetment’ {a retaining wall}; a ‘modified limited hangout’. It states the obvious while hiding the deeper truths.


  17. You’ll never put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

    By Humpty Dumpty, I mean, ‘government’. It is a daydream, a fantasy that has never existed but in the collective imagination.


  18. “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”~John F. Kennedy

    “In 2008, a U.S. Army War College report warned that the military must be prepared for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,” which could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse,” “purposeful domestic resistance,” “pervasive public health emergencies” or “loss of functioning political and legal order”—all related to dissent and protests over America’s economic and political disarray. Consequently, predicted the report, the “widespread civil violence would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.”

    Indeed, there can no longer be any doubt that militarized police officers, the end product of the government—federal, local and state—and law enforcement agencies having merged, have become a “standing” or permanent army, composed of full-time professional soldiers who do not disband. Yet these permanent armies are exactly what those who drafted the U.S. Constitution feared as tools used by despotic governments to wage war against its citizens.

    That is exactly what we are witnessing today: a war against the American citizenry. Is it any wonder then that Americans are starting to resist?
    … Nevertheless, the time is coming when each American will have to decide: will you be a slave, rebel or revolutionary?”~John W. Whitehead



  19. “United States v. Bundy “arose out of Bundy’s unauthorized grazing of his livestock on property owned by the United States and administered by the Department of the Interior through the BLM and the National Park Service.”~Wiki

    > How does state and county land become ‘owned’ by the United States?~ww

    “Rangelands are distinguished from pasture lands because they grow primarily native vegetation, rather than plants established by humans. In 1848, the United States purchased a large expanse of land in the south-western region of the United States from Mexico, known as the Mexican Cession.[7][8] Nevada and the Bunkerville range are part of that land. Since then, the United States government has continuously owned the land in Nevada, which became a state in 1864.[7][8] Federal rangelands in Nevada are managed principally by either Bureau of Land Management or United States Forest Service. Ranchers may lease or get permits to use portions of this public rangeland and pay a fee based on the number and type of livestock and the period for which they are on the land.”~Wiki

    After the BLM left the area for safety concerns, Nevada’s Senior Senator to the United States Congress, and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid stated “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”

    > Totally hypocritical nonsense from Reid, the whole so-called ‘federal government’ is ultra vires and utterly illegitimate. For any member of the criminal cabal squatting in DC to cite ‘The Law’ is simply bullshit.~ww


  20. “Nevada’s constitution specifically mentions the rights of the Federal Government, stating at Article 1, Section 2, “The Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States…whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.”
    . . . . . . . . . . .

    The ‘Federal Government’, by dismissing the limits to the authority granted to it by the Constitution, acts under false color of the law in using the same instrument they have disavowed as a “warrant” to employ armed force in compelling obedience to such an illegitimate authority.~ww


    Ultra Vires is a Latin term which means “beyond the powers,” and when used in law, it refers to an activity which exceeds the powers granted to authority; beyond the scope or in excess of legal power or authority.

    In the context of the US Constitution there are two undeniable examples that the so-called ‘Federal Government’ is ultra vires, that is acting beyond the powers granted by that Constitution. These examples are “Executive War Powers” and the claims of “Executive Privilege”. Both issues are plainly unconstitutional, and built on the rhetoric of ‘practical’ or ‘expeditious’ politics, in other words; REALPOLITIK, that is rule by caveat, not law.

    And: PRESIDENTIAL WAR POWER by Louis Fisher


  22. Aug 20, 2007 12:18 am
    by David E. Kaiser

    [Mr. Kaiser is the Stanley Kaplan Professor of History and Leadership Studies at Williams College, and the author of American Tragedy: Kennedy, Johnson, and the Origins of the Vietnam War (2000).]

    “More than thirty years ago, in a brilliant work of legal history, Raoul Berger exploded the idea of executive privilege. Little, it seems, has changed since then.”




    The key episode in this controversy, upon which Berger spent most of his book, was the “Rogers Memorandum,” written by Deputy Attorney General William Rogers in 1957, which first stated the case for executive privilege. The memo claimed an unlimited executive right to withhold information from Congress, pleading, among other things, the excuse that the President needed “unfettered advice” from his subordinates. (Why it should be expected that subordinates would naturally be embarrassed by the advice they had given has, frankly, always escaped me.) Rogers cited historical “precedents” going back to the beginning of the Republic, and as Berger showed, the executive branch (including Rogers himself as Secretary of State under Nixon, and Deputy Attorney General William Rehnquist) had been referring to those many decades of “precedents” ever since. The problem, as Berger spent many details pointing out, was that the memo was legally worse than worthless: “a farrago of internal contradictions, patently slipshod analysis, and untenable inferences.” The cases Rogers cited, without exception, did not support his claims at all.


  24. PRESIDENTIAL WAR POWER by Louis Fisher
    University Press of Kansas, 1995. xvi + 245 pgs.
    [Review by David Gordon, senior fellow of the Mises Institute, Spring 1997]

    The conduct of contemporary American foreign policy flies in the face of the Constitution and much of our history. Of this unfortunate circumstance, readers of Louis Fisher’s definitive book will have no doubt. Today, President Clinton claims, on his authority as Commander-in-Chief, the power to commit American troops to Bosnia and elsewhere, without the consent of Congress. Like his predecessor George Bush in the Gulf War, he avers that he may act in entire independence of Congress: the president is supreme in foreign policy. Though the cooperation of Congress in foreign adventures may be sought, this is a matter of political convenience rather than legal necessity.

    Louis Fisher, probably the foremost expert on the legal questions involved, rejects entirely the self-serving view of our beloved chief magistrate. The Constitution states without ambiguity that Congress, not the President, has the power to declare war. As Fisher makes abundantly clear, the framers had good reason for their language.



    • I would note that the President is not automatically “Commander-in-Chief” in constitutional language, but must be ‘called to that duty’ by Congress via a ‘Declaration of War’. There is simply no ambiguity as to the facts.


      • The issues of ‘Executive War Powers’ and ‘Executive Privilege’ make the case beyond reasonable doubt that the “Federal Government” is simply a front organization for the Global Corporatist Oligarchy.


  25. The Global Corporatist Oligarchy From Another Perspective:

    Obama: “Remaking the Middle East”: The American Gulag

    By Prof. James Petras – Global Research, April 22, 2014

    “During the beginning of his first term in office President Obama promised “to remake the Middle East into a region of prosperity and freedom”. Six years later the reality is totally the contrary: the Middle East is ruled by despotic regimes whose jails are overflowing with political prisoners. The vast majority of pro-democracy activists who have been incarcerated, have been subject to harsh torture and are serving long prison sentences. The rulers lack legitimacy, having seized power and maintained their rule through a centralized police state and military repression.Direct US military and CIA intervention, massive shipments of arms,military bases, training missions and Special Forces are decisive in the construction of the Gulag chain from North Africa to the Gulf States.

    We will proceed by documenting the scale and scope of political repression in each US backed police state. We will then describe the scale and scope of US military aid buttressing the “remaking of the Middle East” into a chain of political prisons run by and for the US Empire.

    The countries and regimes include Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq, Yemen, Jordan and Turkey . . . all of which promote and defend US imperial interests against the pro-democracy majority, represented by their independent social-political movements.”

      “Indeed, Russia can only be said to be an “aggressive” and “imperial” power so long as one accepts the unrelenting hypocrisy of U.S. and Western leaders. After all, it was not Russia that invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq, killing millions. It is not Putin, but rather Barack Obama, who has waged a “global terror campaign,” compiling “kill lists” and using flying killer robots to bomb countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and even the Philippines, killing thousands of people around the world. It is not Putin, but rather, Barack Obama, who has been sending highly-trained killers into over 100 countries around the world at any given time, waging a “secret war” in most of the world’s nations. It was not Russia, but rather the United States, that has supported the creation of “death squads” in Iraq, contributing to the mass violence, civil war and genocide that resulted; or that has been destabilizing Pakistan, a nuclear-armed nation, increasing the possibility of nuclear war.”~Andrew Gavin Marshall

  28. The Trans Pacific Partnership IP Chapter Leaks: The Battle Over Internet Service Provider Liability

    Thursday November 14, 2013
    The leak of the Trans Pacific Partnership intellectual property chapter generated global coverage as full access to the proposed text provided a wake-up call on U.S. demands and the clear opposition from many TPP countries. My first posthighlighted Canada’s opposition to many U.S. proposals, but nowhere is that more evident than in the section on Internet service provider liability. In fact, ISP liability in the TPP is shaping up to be a battle between Canada and the U.S., with countries lining up either in favour of a general notification obligation (Canada) or a notice-and-takedown system with the prospect of terminating subscriber Internet access and content blocking (U.S.).

    The Canadian approach, which enjoys support from Chile, Brunei, New Zealand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, and Mexico, establishes a general obligation to limit liability for ISPs for infringements that occur on their networks (the U.S. and Australia oppose this approach, Japan and Peru are undecided). The Canadian proposal includes more detailed descriptions of the limitations of liability, an exclusion for services primarily for enabling infringement, and a reminder that ISP liability is still subject to copyright limitations and exceptions. Under the Canadian model, ISP limitation of liability is conditioned on creating a notification process and “legal incentives for ISPs to comply with these procedures or remedies against ISPs that fail to comply.”

  32. By reviewing real history, we can better understand the deceptive, dangerous, and brutal nature of Zionism today.


    Socrates taught his students that the pursuit of truth can only begin once they start to question and analyze every belief that they ever held dear. If a certain belief passes the tests of evidence, deduction, and logic, it should be kept. If it doesn’t, the belief should not only be discarded, but the thinker must also then question why he was led to believe the erroneous information in the first place. Not surprisingly, this type of teaching didn’t sit well with the ruling elite of Greece. Many political leaders throughout history have always sought to mislead the thinking of the masses. Socrates was tried for “subversion” and for “corrupting the youth”. He was then forced to take his own life by drinking poison. It’s never easy being an independent thinker!

    “I intend to set forth in this paper an overwhelming body of evidence which should forever destroy the notion that a Saudi Arabian caveman and his band of half-trained, nerdy Arab flight school attendees, orchestrated the most sophisticated terror operation in world history. The idea is utterly laughable. And yet, due to the blithering barrage of bullshit dished out by the government/media complex, “patriotic” Americans have accepted this ridiculous fairy tale with a religious conviction.”~Dr. Albert D Pastore

    “The fight against Germany has now been waged for months by every Jewish community, on every continent…We shall start a spiritual and material war of the world against Germany. Our Jewish interests call for the complete destruction of Germany.”~Vladimir Jabotinksy 1934


  33. “The Intelligence Community” is a milieu – it is combined and mixed by mutual penetrations in all quarters. It cannot be separated by nationality nor agency, it is global in extent and extant. The driving power and ultimate recipient of intelligence product is the pinnacle of the power pyramid; the head of the global oligarchy. This conclusion is drawn from an understanding of the architecture of modern political power.


    • There are no secrets. All can be gleaned by ‘open source intelligence’. This is why the effort to destroy the Internet as it is now constructed: To fold all of this intelligence back into the pocket of the global oligarchy.


  34. In the book by William J Lederer, A NATION OF SHEEP, he describes in great detail the ‘wag the dog’ scenario as played out by Western Intel in the posture of ‘journalism’. These provocations carried out in South East Asia in the 1950’s and ongoing to the 1960’s eventually evolved into the full scale US invasion of Vietnam in 1964.

  39. “While we are unequivocally committed to upholding free speech and academic freedom, we believe that SDSU’s association with Richard Falk undermines the university’s academic reputation and will provide a platform for spreading anti-Israel bigotry. It is one thing to allow this anti-Jewish, anti-American conspiracy theorist of the worst kind on campus under the guise of free speech and academic freedom; it is another thing entirely to encourage and endorse it, which by offering students credit for attending this speech is what SDSU is plainly doing,” said Nicole Bernstein, executive director of StandWithUS-San Diego.
    . . . . . . . . . .
    Deconstructing the Bullshit …
    Bernstein claims in her proximate sentence that “we are unequivocally committed to upholding free speech and academic freedom..” and then within the very same sentence begins to equivocate and make exceptions to upholding free speech. She does so through hysterical rhetoric, claiming Falk is “spreading anti-Israel bigotry,” which is not a fact but only her opinion. And it is opinion which is upheld in free speech and academic freedom.

    What is even more preposterous is Bernstein’s allegation that Richard Falk is “anti-Jewish”, given the fact that Falk is himself Jewish. And it is particularly twisted when Ms Bernstein includes the term “anti-American conspiracy theorist,” which is simply Orwellian in this application.

    That Ms Bernstein is so disingenuous in her complaints over Falk being given the chance to speak at SDSU, is one of the strongest arguments that SDSU has made the proper choice in bringing Mr Falk to the university, and a very good reason to find out what it is that has someone so insincere as Ms Bernstein in hysterics over this issue.


  40. Any who understand the battle that Lenny Bruce waged against the suppression of free speech in Amerika, knows that it isn’t when “foul language” is used that reason leaves the playing field. The worst types of attacks on reason come in saccharine coated genteel rhetoric, in the guise of academic propriety. Bullshit is best delivered dressed in a business suit with a gleaming white-toothed smile; that is the classic posture of ‘the anchorman’.

    “If you can’t say fuck – you can’t say fuck the government.”~Lenny Bruce


  41. The 1960 Democratic National Convention was held in Los Angeles. It nominated Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts for President and Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas for Vice President. I was 12 years old at the time. The convention was televised and my stepfather wanted to watch undisturbed and insisted that I go to bed at my normal time of 9PM, although I was highly interested in seeing the program and said I would be quiet.

    Having no choice, I went to bed at 9 and tried to listen anyway. I was just drifting off to sleep, in a state of revery when I heard Kennedy’s distinctive voice for the first time. I listened best I could for awhile, with a certainty that came over me that I was hearing the next President of the United States. A premonition so strong, and attended by feelings that there was to be something extraordinary and unprecedented occurring during Kennedy’s administration.

    The memory of that night and that premonition came back like a bolt of lightning on November 22, 1963. Something cosmic had come full circle. I have been deeply involved in deciphering all of this for the greater part of my life.


  42. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/israel/protocols.htm

    This site presents a chapter from Douglas Reed’s THE CONTROVERSY OF ZION.
    As the author of this page asserts, “…is the most important book I’ve read in my search to make sense of the insanity at large in this world today, and of the probable “source” of the insanity. For me, the following chapter on The Protocols adds an important element of understanding to the highly controversial Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The following quote taken from the chapter is all too recognizable today.

    I agree that this book by Reed is the single most important book available today for understanding Zionism. And this must be augmented by study of the text of the Protocols themselves. – ww
    . . . . . . . . . . .

    To bring about this state of affairs compliant politicians are needed, and of them the Protocols say:

    “The administrators whom we shall choose from among the public, with strict regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will not be persons trained in the arts of government, and will therefore easily become pawns in our game in the hands of men of learning and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world”.


  43. In The Spectator on August 27, 1921, Lord Sydenham, a foremost authority of that day, also urged investigation. “The main point is, of course, the source from which Nilus obtained the Protocols. The Russians who knew Nilus and his writings cannot all have been exterminated by the Bolsheviks. His book . . . has not been translated, though it would give some idea of the man . . . What is the most striking characteristic of the Protocols? The answer is knowledge of a rare kind, embracing the widest field. The solution of this ‘mystery’, if it is one, is to be found where this uncanny knowledge, on which prophecies now literally fulfilled are based, can be shown to reside”. ~Reed


  44. The state of affairs thus brought about after 1920, and continuing today, was foretold by the Protocols in 1905:

    “Through the press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade . . .
    The principal factor of success in the political” (field) ” is the secrecy of its undertaking; the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat . . .

    We must compel the governments . . . to take action in the direction favoured by our widely-conceived plan, already approaching the desired consummation, by what we shall represent as public opinion, secretly prompted by us through the means of that so-called ‘Great Power’, the press, which, with a few exceptions that may be disregarded, is already entirely in our hands . . .

    We shall deal with the press in the following way . . . we shall saddle and bridle it with a tight curb; we shall do the same also with all productions of the printing press, for where would be the sense of getting rid of the attacks of the press if we remain targets for pamphlets and books? . . .

    No one shall with impunity lay a finger on the aureole of our government infallibility. The pretext for stopping any publication will be the alleged plea that it is agitating the public mind without occasion or justification . . .

    We shall have a sure triumph over our opponents since they will not have at their disposition organs of the press in which they can give full and final expression to their views owing to the aforesaid methods of dealing with the press…”

    Such is the history of the Protocols thus far. Their attribution to jewish “Elders” is unsupported and should be rejected, without prejudice to any other evident about Jewish leadership of the world-revolution as such. The Jewish attack on them was bent, not on exculpating Jewry, but on stopping the publication on the plea that it was “agitating the public mind without occasion or justification”. ~Reed

  45. A passage of particular interest in the present, though it was written before 1905, says

    “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”.~Reed

  46. It is in that chapter that the idea of Zionism as uniquely Jewish is dispelled. I have spoken to this earlier in former threads on this blog. Zionism has nothing to do with any religion or particular ethnicity, it is rather a philosophy of “Might is Right” and “Ends justify the Means”; the philosophy of REALPOLITIK. That Jews are candidates for scapegoating, just as any other convenient ‘collaterally-damaged’ bystander is made clear in the pages of this most intriguing work; The Protocol of the Learned Elders of Zion.


    • ” Then the unknown scribes of some time before 1905 describe the position to which American presidents have been reduced in our century. The passage begins,

      “In the near future we shall establish the responsibility of presidents”. This, as the sequence shows, means personal responsibility, as distinct from the responsibility curbed by constitutional controls; the president is to become one of the “premier-dictators earlier foreseen, whose function is to be to break down the constitutional defences of states and thus prepare “unification under our sovereign rule”.

      During the First and Second World Wars the American presidents did in fact become “premier-dictators” in this sense, claiming that “the emergency” and the need for “victory” dictated this seizure of powers of personal responsibility; powers which would be restored to “the people” when “the emergency” was past. Readers of sufficient years will recall how inconceivable this appeared before it happened and how passively it was accepted in the event. The passage then continues:

      “The chamber of deputies will provide cover for, will protect, will elect presidents, but we shall take from it the right to propose new, or make changes in existing laws, for this right will be given by us to the responsible president, a puppet in our hands . . .
      Independently of this we shall invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war. We shall justify this last right on the ground that the president as chief of the whole army of the country must have it at his disposal in case of need . . .

      It is easy to understand that in these conditions the key of the shrine will lie in our hands, and that no one outside ourselves will any longer direct the force of legislation . . .”

      Reed discussing the Protocols

    • And the end of it all:

      “What we have to get at is that there should be in all the States of the world, beside ourselves, only the masses of the proletariat, a few millionaires devoted to our interests, police and soldiers . . .
      The recognition of our despot . . . will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence . . . of their rulers, will clamour: ‘Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who will unite us and annihilate the causes of discords, frontiers, nationalities, religions, State debts, who will give us peace and quiet, which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives’ .”

      In two or three of these passages I have substituted “people” or “masses” for “Goyim”, because the use of that word relates to the unproven assertion contained in the book’s title, and I do not want to confuse the issues; evidence about the identity of the authors of the conspiracy must be sought elsewhere than in an unsupported allegation. The authors may have been Jewish, non-Jewish or anti-Jewish. That is immaterial. When it was published this work was the typescript of a drama which had not been performed; today it has been running for fifty years and its title is The Twentieth Century. The characters depicted in it move on our contemporary stage, play the parts foretold and produce the events foreseen

      Only the denouement remains, fiasco or fulfillment. It is a grandiose plan, and in my estimation cannot succeed. But it has existed for at least 180 years and probably for much longer, and the Protocols provided one more proof in a chain of proofs that has since been greatly lengthened. The conspiracy for world dominion through a world slave state exists and cannot at this stage be abruptly checked or broken off; of the momentum which it has acquired it now must go on to fulfillment or failure. Either will be destructive for a time, and hard for those of the time in which the denouement comes. — End of Chapter — Douglas Reed

  47. Color Revolutions. Getting Our Facts Straight on the “Arab Spring”

    By Sam Muhho — Global Research, April 28, 2014
    Url of this article:

    The so-called Arab Spring is one of the most pivotal geopolitical happenings of the current century and one which will no doubt reverberate and define the academic discourse on the subject in later generations.

    That being said, it becomes disheartening to find out that the majority of the talking points on the Arab Spring echoed from both mainstream media as well as “non-aligned”, independent sources ring of the stereotypical western narrative of spontaneous, indigenous uprisings rising up corruption and despotism.

    While the notion that the US government, and specifically the corporate-financiers overlords of Wall Street and London, were behind the Arab Spring are scoffed at by “skeptics” and “academics”, the financial and political connections are well established and open for all to independently verify. The year 2011 was truly the “Year of the Dupe” and unless we collectively identify this engineering of our past and by extension our destiny, we run the risk of making true yet again Napoleon Bonaparte’s adage that, “History is a set of lies that people have agreed upon.” – Sam Muhho


  48. BBC’s killer documentary called “The Power of Nightmares“. Top CIA officials openly admit, al Qaeda is a total and complete fabrication, never having existed at any time. The Bush administration needed a reason that complied with the Laws so they could go after “the bad guy of their choice” namely laws that had been set in place to protect us from mobs and “criminal organizations” such as the Mafia. They paid Jamal al Fadl, hundreds of thousands of dollars to back the U.S. Government’s story of al Qaeda, a “group” or criminal organization they could “legally” go after.


  49. Jamal al Fadl became a business agent for al Qaeda but resented receiving a salary of only $500 a month while some of the Egyptians in al Qaeda were given $1,200 a month. Osama bin Laden discovered that Fadl had skimmed about $110,000 and asked for restitution. Fadl then defected and became a star informant for the United States.
    His upkeep during the first 12 years of his life in Witness Protection were deemed “expensive”, as he was an “incessant troublemaker” who suffered severe emotional mood swings, a taste for womanizing and financial scheming. – Wiki

    Of course they knew very well that they were manipulating the system by using this no count, low life criminal {birds of a feather as it were} as long as it fulfilled their agenda is all that mattered.

    This has to be one of the most blatant bullshit stories told yet by the National Security State.

  50. “Because stereotyping necessarily subordinates individual identity to group identity. In sociology and psychology, a common view distinguishes prejudice from racism, holding that racism is best understood as ‘prejudice plus power’ because without the support of political or economic power, prejudice would not be able to manifest as a pervasive cultural, institutional or social phenomenon.
    Some definitions of racism also include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes.
    Racism and racial discrimination are often used to describe discrimination on an ethnic or cultural basis, independent of whether these differences are described as racial. According to the United Nations convention, there is no distinction between the terms racial discrimination and ethnic discrimination, and superiority based on racial differentiation is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and that there is no justification for racial discrimination, in theory or in practice, anywhere.

    In history, racism was a driving force behind the transatlantic slave trade, and behind states based on racial segregation such as the U.S. in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and South Africa under apartheid. Practices and ideologies of racism are universally condemned by the United Nations in the Declaration of Human Rights. It has also been a major part of the political and ideological underpinning of genocides such as The Holocaust, but also in colonial contexts such as the rubber booms in South America and the Congo, and in the European conquest of the Americas and colonization of Africa, Asia and Australia.” – Wiki

  51. “The interesting thing is that during the Great Depression. People actually started creating alternate currencies that weren’t linked to Federal Reserve notes and were more of a local currency. We see the same thing happening today. Cryptocurrency is a model of that same thing. Try as they might and have been, they’ve been doing a straight on run at Bitcoin which is a brilliant concept and was created to be not controlled by any central bank and exists solely in the cloud. Bitcoin will be discontinued to be mined when it reaches 21,000,000 coins. It’s fungible and can be broken down into smaller parts. It’s volatile and fluctuates to pressures and is best used as a currency and reacts to hoarding or any manipulation leaving it to be kept in flow and is the banksters worse nightmare, they’ll be unable to control it. Is it something whose time has come?
    With only that many in circulation, it’s the circulation that keeps it effective and of intrinsic value.
    What it shows to me, is that when the Ponzi money scheme collapses in upon itself. There’s systems already created to take over that’ll prevent the hoarders from being able to take control.
    My belief is, that NWO has been fomented due to the fact that a flawed corrupt system has an expiry date and they’re in a desperate end run to beat the clock because they know the time is drawing near and people are rapidly coming out of hypnosis. The Bundy debacle right or wrong is an indicator that people are becoming aware and have had enough of corrupt, clumsy, high handed government tactics.
    I think in the all of it, there’s a strong undercurrent throughout humanity that reacts to the pressures created by the parasitical class.
    As they’ve become exposed and have become soft and defused by luxury and privilege. There’s a rising from the bottom that they fear that’s becoming ready to cast them aside to rot in their own ineffectiveness to be able to survive in the cataclysm they’ve created in the natural order of things.
    History forgotten repeats itself. There’s no Jesus Christ in this one and there’ll be no Catholic church at the root of 2000 years of turmoil and angst that created Western culture as we know. I believe Judaism and Islam will eventually fade also as has been demonstrated in the popular risings against the hegemon, most people are secular.”

  52. As Reed notes, as well as Sutton, the document come to be known as the Protocols, are an expanded and updated version of the Illuminati documents produced by Weishaupt in the late 1700’s, which are known to be a reworking and updating of even earlier versions going back perhaps centuries.

    As Reed notes as well, whereas the Illuminati saw the infiltration of Masonry as the path for laying a secret society ensconced within a secret society, the newer version from Russia was a shift in strategy, to use the open cause of “liberalism” as a vehicle, attended by its dialectic counterpart “fascism”.

    This brings us then to Albert Pike, a Southern General during the so-called ‘Civil War’ in the US. He was the Grand Master of the Masons, and wrote a strategy paper for driving the world to a series of revolutions and three world wars. The details to this, like the Protocols is “prophetic” beyond rational consideration, and must be seen as an agenda that was put in place and acted on. We have only that last world war waiting in the wings to bring the world to its knees to beg for “peace and order and leadership” – ‘Order Out of Chaos’, as is said. It was the dialectical counterparties designed by Pike that have driven sociopolitical realities from his time to the present day.


  53. WASHINGTON (JTA) April 28, 2014 4:46pm— “U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said he will introduce legislation that would cut U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority unless its government recognized Israel as a Jewish state.

    Rand Paul is just another sold out politician. Why should the Palestinian Authority recognize a illegitimate gangster state like Israel on the recommendation of an illegitimate gangster state like the US? The whole thing is bullshit.

    • Israel currently has all the land of the Palestine. They control the West Bank and Gaza. The Zionist were able to steal the Palestinians land with the help of the British and the UN. In 1947 the Zionist began destroying Palestinian villages, murdering,and driving the Palestinians out of the country even before the UN partition and before the Arab armies could come to their defense. Palestine was part of the Ottoman Empire before the end of WWI.

      Israel is an illegitimate state, Palestine was stolen through the chicanery of realpolitik. Through the eyes of justice and reason, there is no Israel, only occupied Palestine.


  54. The Jewish Question is complex. One must admit to the history of foul deeds of “Organized Jewry” – “the International Jew” as it is called. And yet one must remain true to the sound principles of judging individuals as individuals and not charging a collective guilt upon any individual in prejudiced manner. Such a principled stand may seem less than “practical”, yet the agenda of “practical politics” better called Realpolitik, is in fact an agenda designed by ‘Organized Jewry’. Thus they present a dilemma, which the principled person must not accept, must not adapt to, adopt and become despoiled with the errors of prejudiced thinking that our principles oppose.

    Might is NOT right. Might is neutral, being available for both good and evil purpose. What is ‘right’ is a question of conscience not power.
    Ends are not ‘justified’ by means, but are DEFINED by means.

    To become like the enemy one opposes, is to loose to the enemy before the contest even begins. We shall stand on our principles or become that enemy we pretend to oppose. Be not naive, know thine enemy, and do not take on his traits and become him yourself.


  55. “In the U.S. cotton states, after the war . . . the Jew came down in force, set up shop on the plantation, supplied all the Negroes’ wants on credit, and at the end of the season was the proprietor of the Negro’s share of the present crop and part of the next one. Before long, the whites detested the Jew.”~Mark Twain

  56. “The Jews could be put down very plausibly as the most unpleasant race ever heard of. As commonly encountered they lack any of the qualities that mark the civilized man: courage, dignity, incorruptibility, ease, confidence. They have vanity without pride, voluptuousness without taste, and learning without wisdom. Their fortitude, such as it is, is wasted upon puerile objects, and their charity is mainly a form of display.” (Treatise on the Gods) The fact that what are commonly spoken of as rights are often really privileges is demonstrated in the case of the Jews. They resent bitterly their exclusion from certain hotels, resorts and other places of gathering, and make determined efforts to horn in. But the moment any considerable number of them horns in, the attractions of the place diminish, and the more pushful Jews turn to one where they are still nicht gewuenscht . . . (“not wanted.”) “I am one of the few Goyim who have ever actually tackled the TALMUD. I suppose you now expect me to add that it is a profound and noble work, worthy of hard study by all other GOYIM. Unhappily, my report must differ from this expectation. It seems to me, save for a few bright spots, to be quite indistinguishable from rubbish . . .”~Mencken, H. L.


  57. “This is the real enemy, the invader from the East, the Druze, the ruffian, the oriental parasite; in a word: the Jew. (London Morning Post, December 3, 1925) This craving for bouquets by Jews is a symptom of racial degeneration. The Jews are worse than my own people. Those Jews who still want to be the chosen race (chosen by the late Lord Balfour) can go to Palestine and stew in their own juice. The rest had better stop being Jews and start being human beings.”~George Bernard Shaw (Literary Digest, October 12, 1932)


  58. Thursday, May 1, 1941 “The pressure for war is high and mounting. The people are opposed to it, but the Administration seems to have ‘the bit in its teeth’ and is hell-bent on its way to war. Most of the Jewish interests in the country are behind war, and they control a huge part of our press and radio and most of our motion pictures. There are the ‘intellectuals’ and the ‘Anglophiles,’ and the British agents who are allowed free rein, the international financial interests, and many others.” ~Charles Lindbergh (The Wartime Journals)


  59. “Eugenics, the science of improving the human race by scientific control of breeding, was viewed by a large segment of scientists for almost one hundred years as an important, if not a major means of producing paradise on earth. These scientists concluded that many human traits were genetic, and that persons who came from genetically ‘good families’ tended to turn out far better than those who came from poor families. The next step was to encourage the good families to have more children, and the poor families to have few or no children.

    From these simple observations developed one of the most far-reaching movements, which culminated in the loss of millions of lives. It discouraged aiding the sick, building asylums for the insane, or even aiding the poor and all those who were believed to be in some way ‘genetically inferior’, which included persons afflicted with an extremely wide variety of unrelated physical and even psychological maladies. Their end goal was to save society from the ‘evolutionary inferior’. The means was sexual sterilization, permanent custody of ‘defective’ adults by the state, marriage restrictions, and even the elimination of the unfit through means which ranged from refusal to help them to outright killing. This movement probably had a greater adverse influence upon society than virtually any other that developed from a scientific theory in modern times. It culminated with the infamous Holocaust and afterward rapidly declined.” – Dr Jerry Bergman
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    “It culminated with the infamous Holocaust and afterward rapidly declined.”
    Not so, it simply rebranded and went underground, much like the Illuminati which rebranded and came above ground as the CFR.

    “Planned Parenthood” is a direct descendant of the Eugenics movement, and has worked in the open world wide doing the same work and having the same effect, on an even larger scale than ‘the holocaust’ – but filtered by rhetoric.


  60. “The eugenics movement also attacked the idea of democracy itself. Many concluded that letting inferior persons participate in government was naive, if not dangerous. Providing educational opportunities and governmental benefits for everyone likewise seemed a misplacement of resources: one saves only the best cows for breeding, slaughtering the inferior ones, and these laws of nature must be applied to human animals. If a primary determinant of mankind’s behavioural nature is genetic as the movement concluded, then environmental reforms are largely useless. Further, those who are at the bottom of the social ladder in society, such as Blacks, are in this position not because of social injustice or discrimination, but as a result of their own inferiority.”


    • Francis Galton
      His goal was to produce a super race to control tomorrow’s world, a dream which he not only wrote about, but actively involved himself in promoting his whole life.
      Galton openly stated that his goal was ‘to produce a highly gifted race of men by judicious marriages during several consecutive generations’. In an 1865 article, he proposed that the state sponsor competitive examinations, and the male winners marry the female winners. He later suggested that the state rank people according to evolutionary superiority, and then use money ‘rewards’ to encourage those who were ranked high to have more children. Those ranked towards the bottom would be segregated in monasteries and convents, and watched to prevent them from propagating more of their kind.

  61. “According to Veronica Clark, “The Sidney Warburg story is pure fabrication.” This is her analysis and conclusion. According to Michael Collins Piper,

    Many of those who worship at the altar of this nonsense cite a flagrantly-fraudulent document of shadowy origins entitled Hitler’s Secret Bankers, ostensibly written by one “Sidney Warburg,” one of those “Jewish bankers.” But this document, as we’ve said, is a fraud.

    The late Dr. Anthony Sutton’s Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler has promoted this theory, based in part on the Warburg travesty and has given further institutionalization to this mythology–truth be damned.

    But Sutton approached the Sidney Warburg book as a forgery, and provided a very nuanced analysis of the myth of Sidney Warburg.

    Sutton pointed out that many of the then-little-known facts recorded in the forged book are curate. The forgery was thus sophisticated and required inside knowledge. Who forged it? Why would James P. Warburg claim as a forgery a book he hadn’t read, why would he avoid the key question [who could have forged it and why?] and divert discussion away from “Sidney Warburg” to an anti-Jewish book Sonderegger published in 1947, and why would he publish his affidavit in the Memoirs of Franz von Papen? Sutton explored these and other issues at length and came to the conclusion that the forgery was most probably by someone with inside knowledge of a war in preparation, and this person hoped for a public reaction against the Wall Street fanatics and their industrialist friends in Germany—before it was too late.

    Sutton didn’t need a forged book to make his case; he analyzed it because its contents and the circumstances surrounding it prevent anyone from dismissing Sutton’s argument using a guilt-by-association argument.”

    Sutton was smart enough to give the intelligent reader a clue about which lines of evidence to pursue to learn more about the Jewish role in Bolshevism, and he did this while superficially portraying it as minor and largely irrelevant. Notice that most of his appendix cites some of the evidence used to claim that the Bolshevist revolution was a Jewish conspiracy, which he lamely dismisses, but the reader that pursues these lines of evidence will learn much about the Jewish conspiracy.

    Sutton wrote:

    The evidence provided in this book suggests that the New York bankers who were also Jewish had relatively minor roles in supporting the Bolsheviks, while the New York bankers who were also Gentiles (Morgan, Rockefeller, Thompson) had major roles.

    Now, anyone who looks into the rise of the Morgans and the Rockefellers would quickly learn that the Jewish Rothschild bankers from Europe had much to do with their rise. Sutton gave the reader a clue where to look to learn more about the Jewish conspiracy. Radl portrays this as Sutton defending Jews!

    Look at the work of Radl. He documents the high proportion of Bolshevists who were Jews. This is interesting, but Sutton meticulously documented some of the behind-the-scenes work Jews did to acquire their power. Compared to ranting against Jews, explaining what game Jews have been playing is much more devastating documentation against Jewry even if an attempt is made to avoid making it look like a Jewish conspiracy. Prevent this game from being played and Jewry is neutered, and one never needed to even mention Jews.


  62. Sutton’s work on Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler is part of a trilogy documenting capitalist bankers implementing socialism in three nations: Russia (1910s, Bolshevism), America (1930s, corporate socialism), Germany (national socialism).

    Sutton also documented that when the U.S.-U.S.S.R. animosity persisted, with the governments and media of these countries promoting mutual dislike, Wall Street was sending lots of money to the U.S.S.R. to build and empower the Russian federation. Why? A straightforward balance-of-power arrangement. The international bankers don’t put their eggs in one basket. If a powerful nation rebels against them it could be over for them if another powerful nation couldn’t be raised against the rebels. The money/technology transfers balance power; the mutual animosity promoted by the governments and media keep things on a burner, ready to erupt should war be necessary.


  63. Without funding from international bankers, the NSDAP wouldn’t be a serious contender, let alone acquire power:

    The critical point is that the German industrialists financing Hitler were predominantly directors of cartels with American associations, ownership, participation, or some form of subsidiary connection. The Hitler backers were not, by and large, firms of purely German origin, or representative of German family business. Except for Thyssen and Kirdoff, in most cases they were the German multi-national firms — i.e., I.G. Farben, A.E.G., DAPAG, etc. These multi-nationals had been built up by American loans in the 1920s, and in the early 1930s had American directors and heavy American financial participation.

    The essential material resources needed for the planned war had much to do with industries established by international bankers:

    The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations before 1940 can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities. For instance, in 1934 Germany produced domestically only 300,000 tons of natural petroleum products and less than 800,000 tons of synthetic gasoline; the balance was imported. Yet, ten years later in World War II, after transfer of the Standard Oil of New Jersey hydrogenation patents and technology to I. G. Farben (used to produce synthetic gasoline from coal), Germany produced about 6 1/2 million tons of oil — of which 85 percent (5 1/2 million tons) was synthetic oil using the Standard Oil hydrogenation process. Moreover, the control of synthetic oil output in Germany was held by the I. G. Farben subsidiary, Braunkohle-Benzin A. G., and this Farben cartel itself was created in 1926 with Wall Street financial assistance.

    Sutton showed in detail how false the contention that “American technical assistance was accidental” is.-Ibid

    This article on Antony Sutton’s Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler is simply spectacular. If you read it, be sure to go through the comments section wherein J Richards explains further in responses to others, he really knows his Sutton, and as an adjunct to that understands the history of the manipulation of the Third Reich by the Rothschild banking cabal.

    His commentary on ‘Socialism’ in the comments section are superb.


  65. “The Satanical character of the INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, begun in England (c. 1760), bore the cloven imprint of the Rothschilds. It was they who established the building codes, and ordinances, and set standards and values. JEWS hold NO patriotism for their host country: NO love of the landscape, the State, its history, and its people. They view THEIR TALMUDIC WORLD as one without boundaries; upon goyim as THEIR sheep to be fleeced. Had Aryan Man controlled his own MONEY he would NOT have created hellish factory towns, using his own children as slave labor. He would have shaped the Industrial Revolution with the same artistry and love he used in creating his great music, literature, art, sciences and cathedrals. USURY degrades. USURY enslaves.

    The gradual change in direction of Western aspirations (c. 1750) proceeding from Culture to Civilization created stress and fractures within the monarchies of Europe, requiring time to diagnose, treat and heal. JEWS sensed in this indisposition an opportunity to attack. What most certainly would have been a peaceful revolution in France was turned into a tragedy. For the first time the West witnessed JEW POWER: The ILLUMINATI fomented the FRENCH REVOLUTION. L’INFAMIE ignited it.”
    ~James von Brunn


  66. “It’s the bankers who created socialism. Any other conceptualization of socialism appears to be a neologism or bastardization of the original banker intent. More or less cultural universals such as charity or altruism or support for a central organization that’s responsible for societal well-being aren’t enough to evolve into socialism.”~J Richards

    Socialism. Calling any system socialism that does not involve a central authority or ‘state’ that collects and distributes is a misnomer. Any examples of “socialism” predating the industrial revolution are misapprehensions. The collective cooperation of tribal societies is not a form of socialism.~ww


  67. The Nuremberg Judgement

    To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.


  68. “War! What is it Good For? Conflict and the Progress of Civilization from Primates to Robots” by Ian Matthew Morris, April 2014.
    In it he argues that we now have enough evidence to trace the history of violence across many thousands of years, and when we do so, we discover a startling fact. For all its horrors, over the last 10,000 years war has made the world safer and richer, because it is virtually the only way people have found to create large, internally pacified societies that then drive down the rate of violent death. The lesson of the last ten millennia of military history, he argues, is that the way to end war is by learning to manage it, not by trying to wish it out of existence.

    Well it’s true, as a general rule idiots win the highest accolades in a pathological society.


  69. Nick Dean on April 30, 2014 AT 4:36 PM

    “I have written elsewhere on why the ‘alternative’ media is perhaps more objectively racist (anti-White) than even the MSM:

    These people enjoy the high profiles they do precisely because they are hostile to White nationalisms, precisely because their opposition to nationalisms for peoples that happen to be White, fatally undermines their moral claims on behalf of their little Brown and Black pets. They are being used against their own aims. I have written elsewhere on the likes of Blakeney…”
    Mr Dean reveals his racist views quite blatantly by the gutter remark; “little Brown and Black pets” – just too cute a pejorative for him to pass up I suppose.

    It is very rare that a member of a ‘White Identity Cult’ visits and makes comments on Truth and Shadows. Our argument was long and drawn out, a rather exhausting duel yesterday. That I find Mr Dean’s views despicable might go without saying. But I do and I will say that I find in his views those of a sociopath. I called him a “racist asshole” during the discussion. I see no need for apology, he IS a racist asshole. He attempts to define the term “racist” out of existence, as a lexicon of some too distant past to have meaning in today’s modern intellectual world {or words to that effect}.

    Anyone who is curious can read the entire argument at the URL above.

    This has relevance to this page on my blog here, as Señora Clitora d’Maxifuckanus dropped into the conversation a few times to lift it’s skirts, spread the cheeks of it’s ass and spew more of its rancid anal hurlant. That this was in defense of this blatant racist slimefuck, makes it all the more remarkable. Although nothing should surprise me about the Maxitwat by now.


  70. Antony C. Sutton

    His work led him to more questions than answers. “Why had the US built-up it’s enemy? Why did the US build-up the Soviet Union, while we also transferred technology to Hitler’s Germany? Why does Washington want to conceal these facts?”

    Sutton, following his leads, proceeded to research and write his three outstanding books on Wall Street, FDR, the Rise of Hitler, and The Bolshevik Revolution. Then, someone sent Antony a membership list of Skull and Bones and “a picture jumped out”. And what a picture! A multigenerational foreign-based secret society with fingers in all kinds of pies and roots going back to ‘Illuminati’ influences in 1830’s Germany.

    For the full story, check-out Sutton’s book America’s Secret Establishment.


  71. Nesta Helen Webster (Mrs. Arthur Webster), (24 August 1876 – 16 May 1960) was a controversial author who revived conspiracy theories about the Illuminati.[1][2][3][4] She argued that the secret society’s members were occultists, plotting communist world domination,[3] using the idea of a Jewish cabal,[5] the Masons and Jesuits[6] as a smokescreen.[3] According to her, their international subversion included the French Revolution, 1848 Revolution, the First World War, and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.[7]

    In 1920, Webster was one of the contributing authors who wrote The Jewish Peril, a series of articles in the London Morning Post centered on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.[8][9] These articles were subsequently compiled and published in the same year in book form under the title of The Cause of World Unrest.[10] Webster claimed that the authenticity of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was an “open question”.[11]



  72. “Contrary to the assertions of certain writers, I have never affirmed my belief in the authenticity of the Protocols, but have always treated it as an entirely open question. The only opinion to which I have committed myself is that, whether genuine or not, the Protocols do represent the programme of world revolution, and that in view of their prophetic nature and of their extraordinary resemblance to the protocols of certain secret societies in the past, they were either the work of some such society or of someone profoundly versed in the lore of secret societies who was able to reproduce their ideas and phraseology.”~Nesta Webster — (1924).

  73. Psychological Warfare and the “False Flag” Meme — By James F. Tracy
    Global Research, May 01, 2014

    False flag operations and assassinations are a central component of the elaborate psychological warfare campaign waged on the American public to justify the so-called “global war on terrorism,” and the events of September 11, 2001 are this project’s cornerstone.

    Major US news outlets turn a blind eye to a wide array of evidence “that Western covert operators were behind” events such as “Bali, Madrid, London 7/7, mosque bombings in Iraq and elsewhere and, of course, 9/11. Because the mainstream media are integral to the Industrial Military Academic Intelligence Media complex,” journalist Barrie Zwicker observes, “the cold-blooded technicians of death face no journalistic scrutiny. Without moral, legal, technical or financial constraints, the black operators range freely, executing the orders of the global oligarchies.”



    • “Similar to NATO’s Operation Gladio, or the FBI’s more recent efforts at generating newsworthy terrorist incidents in the US,[6] such black operations designed to cultivate terrorism were in fact authorized by the United States in 2002 to further perpetuate its “war on terror.” At that time military officials established the “Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG).” P2OG’s overall strategy combined “CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence and cover and deception” to execute terrorist acts on civilian populations in order to provoke and respond to such consequent indigenous terrorism.[7] In other words, this was an elaborate and deadly “make work” program by and for the military and intelligence communities….

      …On the other hand, the degree and nature of the idiom’s usage in US news outlets is telling. Indeed, to forthrightly discuss false flag operations as the above items do is to render them useless as psychological techniques. The term is thus almost entirely absent in US-based broadcast (ABC, CBS NBC, Fox, NPR) and cable news programming transcripts (CNN, MSNBC, Fox News). It is invoked a total five times over the past ten years on Fox News programs–three of which focus on University of Wisconsin Arabic Studies instructor Kevin Barrett, who was subjected to a relentless media frenzy for publicly questioning the US government’s explanation of September 11, 2001.[15]”
      –James F. Tracy


      • “Despite a series of momentous political assassinations in the 1960s with proven government complicity alongside unmistakable “false flag” events such as the Tonkin Gulf incident, the USS Liberty, the 1995 Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing and the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the above suggests the conscious and now-standard use of psychological warfare methods to contain most Americans’ political horizons and understandings, thereby perpetuating the broader geopolitical status quo.”~Tracy – summation of article above.


  74. “The appalling thing … is not the tumult but the design”–Lord Acton (Essays on the French Revolution).

    The above quote of Lord Acton is in the introduction to Douglas Reed’s book, THE GRAND DESIGN OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, 1977

    Available as a free PDF on the Internet. This can be seen as a companion or addendum to his other book, THE CONTROVERSY OF ZION.

    Both are essential reading for the students of real history. – ww

    “Inextricably held in the coils of an international conspiracy of which the last eight Presidents were the prisoners, this republic is becoming, de facto if not de jure, a satellite of the Soviet Union and will not see the year 2000 in anything resembling the shape he bequeathed to it. By “covert and insidious methods” (his phrase) the principles and admonitions of his Farewell Speech have been abandoned, and America, like a pirated ship, has lost all control of course and destination.
    The conspiracy against nations has succeeded in hijacking the American inheritance of wealth and energy and diverting it to the purpose of destroying nations and setting up the world dictatorship.
    Now that the 20th Century is three parts done, the track of the conspiracy can be charted and its promoters identified. Only the lunatic fringe and the perjured public men still deny that it exists.
    The initiates have long since made public their plan for a world where nationhood would be a punishable offence, a plan, in fact, for a world concentration camp. The great Plan now overshadows our every day and is the reason why we live in a present without a future.”-Reed


  75. For myself personally, the litmus test for whether a person is ‘awakened’ or not is not as much their recognition of 9/11 as a psyop, but recognition of the Grand Conspiracy as revealed in ‘The Protocols’. Those who grasp this are certainly aware that 9/11 was another part of the plan put forth in the infamous document.


  76. When the Protocols were published “secrecy” (people might have thought) was finished. Far from it: the public debate about the Protocols was immediately quashed by a frantic clamour of “forgery” and “anti-semitism” from all parts of the world.
    Following the precepts of the Weishaupt papers and the Protocols, the conspiracy proved that it was able to control the public debate, and from that day no public man has dared mention this, the most important document of our century and the recognisable blueprint of our universal catastrophe.

    “Secrecy” is no longer necessary when open debate is forbidden, and that has become the case.” — Reed

  77. The student of these affairs constantly finds himself confronted by other, less-advanced seekers to truth who snarl at him, “Why would rich men support Communism, eh? Explain that. It doesn’t make sense!”

    This writer always advises such innocents abroad to accept the incontrovertible fact that the thing is, and to work back from that point to the “Why?” He might take as starting point the testimony of an unassailable authority, Professor Carroll Quigley (Tragedy, And Hope, Macmillan, London, 1966). Professor Quigley, who has the advantage of himself being of the “Insiders” with inside experience of the conspiracy at work, says, “There does exist and has existed for a generation an international … network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act … This network … has no aversion to co-operating with the Communists … and frequently does so.” — Reed

  78. Another diligent explorer, Mr. Gary Allen (The C.F.R., Conspiracy To Rule The World, American Opinion, Belmont, Mass., 1969) says, “Why would international bankers and financiers be interested in promoting a Socialist World Government? Clearly, socialism is only the bait to obtain the support of the political underworld and to create the structure necessary to maintain dictatorial control. What this small group of financiers and cartel-oriented businessmen are interested in is monopolistic control over the world’s natural resources, trade, transportation and communications … something that despite their great wealth they could not achieve otherwise. Therefore the supercapitalists become super-socialists, realising that only a World Government under their control can give them the power necessary to achieve their goal. Only this could explain why these extremely wealthy men would be willing to support movements which seem to be aimed at their own destruction.” — Reed

  79. “The One World conspirators at once regrouped and reorganised their forces for the next bid, through another war. Mr. Lionel Curtis was charged to reshape the Round Table group and established throughout the “English-speaking” lands separate “front organisations” (to use the Communist phraseology) each pursuing the common ambition behind a facade of fine-sounding designations.
    In England this became the Royal Institute of International Affairs, which absorbed the
    membership of the ci-devant Round Table group. In America Mr. House’s dictum about “deception regarding real opinions and intentions” was honoured in the name chosen for the new body which was incorporated in 1921: the Council on Foreign Relations.”

  80. Why should I refer to the anonymous entity as “Señor El Once” or even “Maxwell Bridges”? These are both cover stories, nom de plumes of a phantom; a vile vampire lusting to suck the vitality and character out of real people. This Renfield has even fashioned its own sign off mark as a pale replica of the one I use. Like the psychopath that poses and by long and necessary practice learns the gestures and expressions of healthy human beings. Adding to this the Mr Hyde I contend with now begins to slur myself as a “sociopath”, this addition to the lexicrime of the entity is quite recent.

    So NO, I will chose more fitting names for this vile specter, ones that paint a caricature more fitting for this creature. “Señora Cuntora d’Maxifuckanus” is the most fitting and complete of these more apt nom de plumes. “Maxitwat” is more simple but apt as well in brevity.

    I, Willy Whitten am a real living human being, while Maxitwat is a spook, and phantom.


  81. “While they are in power over us, we shall all continue to be Gadarea-bound, and the new age of darkness is nigh upon us. When that comes we shall all need to start again and work for another renaissance. Many good men and true are preparing now for that, and tomorrow’s day will be theirs. The perjurers and their kept press will call it the counter-revolution. Its proper name will be The Conspiracy Of Truth.” – Douglas Reed

  82. Douglas Reed died as Laocoon, mobbed on the beach where the ocean of truth laps at the sands of time, that reverberate with the perfidy of the villains of illegitimate power.

  83. “The newly declassified email written by Obama’s then Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes specifically directed then UN Ambassador Susan Rice in preparation for her Sunday morning talk show appearances on September 16th, 2012 to explain the administration’s take on what it knew of the Benghazi murders. Rhodes advised Rice to attribute the Benghazi uprising as “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy,” pushing talking points designed to bolster Obama’s presidential image as a cool-as-a-cucumber-under-fire kind of wise and benevolent leader and statesman. The major emphasis of the email instructed Rice to blame the bogus anti-Moslem video as inciting a spontaneous protest like in other countries in the region that apparently grew violently out of control, of course all the while knowing that that was a boldface lie.” ~Hagopian

    “Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser” — ‘Strategic Communications’ …
    Hmm? now just what could that euphemism refer to? ‘Strategy’ is game/war lexicon, and this term obviously means “communications warfare” as part of the grand strategy of “Full Spectrum Dominance” – so a “Strategic Communications Adviser” is in charge of spin, and PR = PROPAGANDA.



  84. The “Strategy of Tension” in the Cold War Period*
    by Daniele Ganser

    Historians today and in the coming years face a challenging task: they must
    write the history of the events of September 11, 2001. What they write will be taught in history classes. But what will they write? Will they write that Osama Bin Laden sent 19 Muslims to launch a surprise attack on the U.S.? Or will they write that the administration of President George W. Bush was responsible for the attack, either constructing it or deliberately permitting it in order to shock the U.S. population and to create a pretext for increasing military spending and attacking Afghanistan and Iraq?

    The Strategy of Tension
    It is probably fair to say that of the roughly seven billion people who live on our planet today, far less than one percent has ever heard of the “strategy of tension.” And only a very few of these could illustrate the strategy with specific historical examples. It is indeed a strategy of a shadow world, known only to a few military and intelligence officers (and some criminals) who have carried it out, a few police officers and judges who fought against it, and a handful of journalists and academics who have written about it.

    In its essence, the strategy of tension targets the emotions of human beings
    and aims to spread maximum fear among the target group. “Tension” refers to emotional distress and psychological fear, whereas “strategy” refers to the technique of bringing about such distress and fear. A terrorist attack in a public place, such as a railway station, a market place, or a school bus, is the typical technique through which the strategy of tension is implemented. After the attack—and this is a crucial element—the secret agents who carried out the crime blame it on a political opponent by removing and planting evidence.

    It must be noted that the targets of the strategy of tension are not the dead
    and the wounded of the terrorist attacks, as many might assume. The targets are the political opponents, who are discredited through the attack, and those who remain unharmed but learn of the attack, thereby coming to fear for their lives and those of their loved ones. Since the aims of the strategy are to discredit opponents and to create fear, the real targets are not the people who were killed, whether they number in the dozens or even thousands, but the millions of people who survive physically unharmed but emotionally distressed.

    The strategy of tension forms part of what is called “psychological warfare” or PSYWAR.

    “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game,” the neofascist Vincenzo Vinciguerra said after his arrest, explaining the strategy of tension in which he himself had participated:

    “The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the State to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the State cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”

    The permission was given and Casson made a sensational discovery: He found that under the code name “Gladio” (“sword”), a secret army existed that had been set up by the Italian military intelligence service in close collaboration with the CIA in the years after World War II. This secret army was to function as a guerrilla unit in the event of a Soviet invasion and occupation of Italy.
    The data found by Casson suggested that this mysterious Gladio army was linked to NATO and, in the absence of a Soviet invasion, seems to have manipulated Italian politics in a number of covert action operations during the Cold War in order to weaken the Italian Communists.


    This is a very good ‘101’ review of the Strategy of Tension and Operation Gladio.

  85. John Friend, Neo-Nazi racist and Hitlerite

    “Homosexuality, transgenderism, sexual promiscuity and licentiousness, race mixing, binge drinking and drug use, and everything in between is now not only socially acceptable, but encouraged and seen as “cool”.~John Friend

    . . . . . . . . . .

    “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is naïve dickspittle. The “Chosen People” and the “Master Race” are equally deplorable concepts. Both of these exceptionalist ideas lead to cult extremism and delusional world views leading to confirmation bias.


    • “Thanks for reading! If you feel compelled to comment, please do. No ad hominem attacks, no Hitler bashing, no Christ bashing, and no foul language. If you stick with these guidelines I will likely publish your comment.”~John Friend

      That is a lie. I have posted three comments to his blog so far, none having ad hominem, mentioning Hitler nor Christ.

      Like Simon Shack, Friend allows no counterarguments.

    “I linked this article by Veronica Clark in the last post, which explains in great detail the rise of the NSDAP in Germany, dispelling all of these myths about Hitler being funded by Jews, or the Rothschilds, or the Illuminati, or the bankers, ect.
    Many of those who worship at the altar of this nonsense cite a flagrantly-fraudulent document of shadowy origins entitled Hitler’s Secret Bankers, ostensibly written by one “Sidney Warburg,” one of those “Jewish bankers.” But this document, as we’ve said, is a fraud.
    The late Dr. Anthony Sutton’s Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler has promoted this theory, based in part on the Warburg travesty and has given further institutionalization to this mythology–truth be damned.”~John Friend

    Anyone who has actually read Sutton’s book mentioned above knows that he did NOT promote his theory on the “Warburg travesty” – but in fact showed it was a plagiarized document, but pointed out that the inside information was a clue as to where the original information came from.

    Now Veronica Clark may go into a lot of detail about what Hitler did on a street level, and how NSDAP was organized internally – but it does not in any way successfully dispute the international intrigue involved in the financial support of Nazi Germany’s rise to power.
    Her’s is an argumentum verbosium, full of minutia and mind numbing detail that does not “prove” any of the points that Mr Friend attempts to draw from the essay.

    Antony Sutton’s work is exhaustively footnoted and is complete and superb scholarship, that only goes into the ‘Sidney Warburg’ document to dismiss it as authentic, but show that it has clues that whoever forged the document under that name was an insider to the international banking cartel. It was shown to be a red herring with a trail leading back to the cartel in a subtle manner. Any one who disputes this has not read and understood ‘Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler’.


    • “Newly discovered documents from Hitler’s Germany prove that the computer company IBM directly supplied the Nazis with technology which was used to help transport millions of people to their deaths in the concentration camps at Auschwitz and Treblinka, a controversial Holocaust expert claims in a new edition of book published later this week.
      Edwin Black, whose book IBM and the Holocaust was published in hardback last year, says new evidence set out in the paperback version shows that executives at the firm’s New York headquarters directly controlled a Polish subsidiary which leased punch-card machines used to “calculate exactly how many Jews should be emptied out of the ghettos each day” and to transport them efficiently on railways leading to the camps.

      When the Nazis invaded Poland, Black wrote in the Jerusalem Post, “IBM New York established a special new subsidiary called Watson Business Machines,” after its then- president, Thomas Watson. “IBM’s new Polish company’s sole purpose was to service the Nazi occupation during the rape of Poland.” Watson Busi ness Machines even operated a punch-card printing shop over the street from the Warsaw Ghetto, the paperback claims.”~The Guardian, Friday 29 March 2002 07.42 EST



    • Antony C. Sutton — “The Best Enemy Money can Buy” (1986)

      “In Korea we have direct killing of Americans with Soviet weapons. The American casualty roll in the Korean War was 33,730 killed and 103,284 wounded… The 130,000-man North Korean Army, which crossed the South Korean border in June 1950, was trained, supported, and equipped by the Soviet Union, and included a brigade of Soviet T-34 medium tanks (with U.S. Christie suspensions). The artillery tractors were direct metric copies of Caterpillar tractors. The trucks came from the Henry Ford-Gorki plant or the ZIL plant. The North Korean Air Force has 180 Yak planes built in plants with U.S. Lend-Lease equipment. These Yaks were later replaced by MiG-15s powered by Russian copies of Rolls-Royce jet engines sold to the Soviet Union in 1947.”

      “By using data of Russian origin it is possible to make an accurate analysis of the origins of this equipment. It was found that all the main diesel and steam-turbine propulsion systems of the ninety-six Soviet ships on the Haiphong supply run that could be identified (i.e., eighty-four out of the ninety-six) originated in design or construction outside the USSR. We can conclude, therefore, that if the State and Commerce Departments, in the 1950s and 1960s, had consistently enforced the legislation passed by Congress in 1949, the Soviets would not have had the ability to supply the Vietnamese War – and 50,000 more Americans and countless Vietnamese would be alive today.”

      “Who were the government officials responsible for this transfer of known military technology? The concept originally came from National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger, who reportedly sold President Nixon on the idea that giving military techno­logy to the Soviets would temper their global territorial ambitions. How Henry arrived at this gigantic non sequitur is not known. Sufficient to state that he aroused considerable concern over his motivations. Not least that Henry had been a paid family employee of the Rockefellers since 1958 and has served as International Advisory Committee Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, a Rockefeller concern.”

      “Some years ago research strongly suggested that the Soviets had no indigenous military transport technology: neither motor vehicles nor marine diesel engines. Yet about 80 percent of the weapons and supplies for the North Vietnamese were transported by some means from the Soviet Union. The greater part of these Soviet weapons went to Vietnam by Soviet freighter and then along the Ho Chi Minh trail on Soviet-built trucks…

      “Clearly, the Nixon Administration at the highest levels produced more than a normal number of deaf mutes – those officials who knew the story of our assistance to the Soviets but for their own reasons were willing to push forward a policy that could only work to the long run advantage of the United States. It is paradoxical that an Administration that was noisy in its public anti-communist stance, and quick to point out the human cost of the Soviet system, was also an Administration that gave a gigantic boost to Soviet military truck capacity.”~Sutton




    “I would never advocate “acceptance of the brutal and deceptive enemy we face – the Jews, both collectively and as individuals. The Jews need to be excluded from White society, period. There is no allying with these people, no accepting them, even if they are critics of Judaism, Israel, Zionism, Communism, etc., genuine or otherwise. I happen to view the Jewish individuals I cited (Kapner, Atzmon, Shahak, Freedman, etc.) as genuine critics of Judaism and Israel, based on their writings, words, and actions. But that doesn’t mean I am advocating an acceptance of these people. Just wanted to clarify that for everyone.”~John Friend, Neo-Nazi racist

    I advise reading the comments section as well – this Nazi propagandist appeals to some of the most base, vile collection of lunatics I have read yet on the web.


    • The real problem here is EXCEPTIONALISM. Whether it be ‘Jewish Exceptionalism’, ‘White Aryan Exceptionalism’, ‘Amerikan Exceptionalism’, ‘Christian Exceptionalism’, or any other. Everyone of these forms of exceptionalist collective identity are based on irrational fear of other, and lead to exclusion as the false solution.

      There is in fact only one race on this planet, the Human Race. One species; Homo Sapiens.

      • I don’t want to hear any excuses for Hitler and the Nazis, just like I don’t want to hear any for Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, or Tojo. All of the ‘world leaders’ who staged WWII were war criminals.

        “The Good War” bullshit we get in the US is just as despicable as the, historical revisionism on these Neo-Nazi sites, and just as despicable as the historical revisionist crankshaft coming from the Zionists, be they Israeli, the “Christian Right”, or the US Congress.

        There’s no business like bullshit, and that is what all that business is. And it is this business that marches the Hegelian Dialectical down the isle to the pulpit of the marriage of the synthesis to the New World Order planet of terror.

  88. Consummate insider Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, the guy who wrote Powell’s famous speech on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – notes:

    Who’s behind the White House, and who’s therefore behind U.S. foreign policy, more or less?

    I think the answer today is the oligarchs. Which would be the same answer, – incidentally, ironically, if you will – for Putin in Russia.

    The people who own the wealth, the people who therefore have the power and who more or less (and I’m not being too facetious here) buy the president and thus buy American foreign policy.
    Indeed, we have thoroughly documented that war is bad for the economy and makes us poor. But war is very good for a handful of defense contractors and banksters who make huge sums from backing unnecessary war.

    Wilkerson explains that war profiteers feed off conflict:

    INTERVIEWER: One of the things that always hits me is that – once you look at the predictions of who would win in world war 2 – mostly what I’ve seen is that by 1940 or ’41 it was pretty clear Hitler was going to lose.

    If you’re in the German monopoly capitalist class doing analysis, you’re thinking, “Now this is not going to lead to anything good for us. Why aren’t we bailing?”

    But the forces of refusing to accept the reality of it were far too strong.

    COLONEL WILKERSON: That’s a good point. I would say – and I don’t subscribe to conspiracy theories, normally – but I would say there were forces behind that shadow, if you will, who were doing quite well.

    Swiss, Germans, Americans and others who were more or less feeding off the conflict, and got very wealthy feeding off the conflict.

    Just as they did off of World War 1, even more predominately with respect to the United States, in particular. German reparations and so forth.

    We [US] made a ton of money off of World War 1. And we really didn’t contribute a whole lot, if you remember. We were really only there substantially for a very short period of time, roughly April 1917 until Armistice Day.

    So, there is a group which is interested in this kind of thing – and this group alarms probably more than any other in the world, particularly in my own country – that is interested in a constant state of war, or as near a constant state as possible.

    Because they sit behind all the belligerents and make money.
    (Indeed, bankers profits so much from war that they often back both sides. For example, American banks funded the Nazis during WWII when America was is in the middle of a war against Germany.)

    Interestingly, Wilkerson points out that war profiteers can make a financial killing simply by stirring up volatility:

    In some respects this shadow behind the power that makes money off war period – no matter who’s the belligerent – makes money off that volatility now. In other words, destabilizing countries and creating chaos can make modern war profiteers rich.



  89. Martial Law in the Homeland Security Society
    Totalitarian Collectivism

    “The fact is that the modern implementation of the prison planet has far surpassed even Orwell’s 1984 and the only difference between our society and those fictionalized by Huxley, Orwell and others, is that the advertising techniques used to package the propaganda are a little more sophisticated on the surface. Yet just a quick glance behind the curtain reveals that the age old tactics of manipulation of fear and manufactured consensus are still being used to force humanity into accepting the terms of its own imprisonment and in turn policing others within the prison without bars.” – Paul Joseph Watson



  90. Just rule is not rule by others, but each upholding justice individually. As our strength to hold justice is the portion of justice we can attain. A just man is a free man for as long as he lives. Power may take his life, but not his sense of justice. Justice and karma are intertwined in our fate, those who serve injustices suffer the consequences as sure as there is life in mankind.

    The deep fear and loathing of “leaders” is obvious by their pathologically hysterical need for “security”. And this fear is instant karma. Create a dog eat dog world and chances are you will be eaten by dogs.

    At the core of it, freedom is a state of mind. It is a metaphor that one designs as one’s own interior landscape, or epistemology. It is impossible to extinguish this sense of freedom in a free-thinking individual, only extinguishing the life of one such as this can dowse that flame inside.

  91. As John Whitehead at the Rutherford Institute says,

    “If you have been paying attention to the news lately, you may have noticed that the building blocks for a police state are now in place: the surveillance networks, fusion centers and government contractors monitoring what is being said by whom; government databases tracking who poses a potential threat to the government’s power; militarized police, working in conjunction with federal agencies, coordinating with the federal government to round up troublemakers; and the courts which sanction the government’s methods, no matter how unlawful.
“Indeed, the government has been maintaining a growing list of ‘dangerous’ opinions and activities that might classify someone as an enemy of the state — a.k.a. an extremist — a.k.a. terrorist or sympathetic to terrorist activities — and thus qualify you for detention.

    “Included in that list of ‘dangerous’ viewpoints are advocating for states’ rights, believing the government to be unnecessary or undesirable, ‘conspiracy theorizing’ (this applies to those who believe 9/11 might have been an inside job), concern about the government’s efforts to build domestic internment camps, opposition to war, organizing for ‘economic justice,’ frustration with ‘mainstream ideologies,’ opposition to abortion, opposition to globalization, and ammunition stockpiling.
“As you can see, anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between—is a target.”

    Conspiracy theories have been woven into the fabric of American society since before the signing of the Constitution. But what was once dismissed as the amusing ravings of the tin-foil-hat crowd has in recent years crossed a threshold, experts say, with delusions, fictions and lunacy now strangling government policies and creating national health risks. “These kinds of theories have the effect of completely distorting any rational discussion we can have in this country,’’ says Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center who recently wrote a report on the impact of what is known as the Agenda 21 conspiracy. “They are having a real impact now.”

    This article is bullshit PR, and propaganda by hacks and stooges. “The government is your friend, they are just there to help you” – What jejune whackadoodle.

    Read it for yourself, it’s free at the URL above. NEWSWEEK magazine should be renamed NEWSPEAK magazine, because that is exactly the lexicon used.

  93. “So it goes with the endless loop of conspiracy theories. They can’t be corrected, they can’t be killed. Anyone who attempts to disprove some feverish thought must be involved in the plot. Indeed, most of the experts interviewed for this article agreed on one fact: Once it was published, Newsweek would be accused of being part of the conspiracy.”
    ~Article [Above]
    . . . . . . . .
    Newsweek didn’t have to publish the article to know that it, like every other mainstream outlet is “part of the conspiracy”; Bernays and Lippman made that clear in their work in the 1930’s. The “conspiracy” is systemic and it is proven beyond reasonable doubt.

  94. The US was established as a Republic.

    The only “Democracy” it has ever been is the Bernaysian Democracy it was forced into by PR during the Wilson Regime.

    Bernaysian “Democracy” is a Newspeak term, to describe an oligarchy posing as if it is the “will of the people”. “Democracy” is a facade, a false front for a criminal syndicate.

    The operative definition of a Republic:
    Representative rather than Direct government.

    Under the U.S. Constitution’s formulation of a republic, the Individual is sovereign, which prevents that conception of a republic from being a pure democracy; as the country’s citizens, as well as the elected bodies have limited authority over the sovereign individual – especially as far as disparaging the individual’s inalienable rights.

    It is as clear as an azure lake in springtime, from the historic record:
    Beginning with The Declaration of Independence, that each individual is born endowed with certain inalienable rights. That these rights are not granted by governments, and that these rights cannot be annulled by governments.

  95. “You’re trying to find the places where the money will have the most leverage, how you can save the most lives for the dollar, so to speak,” Pelley remarked. “Right. And transform the societies,” Gates replied.[1]

    Emulating his own strategies for cornering the software market, Gates has created a virtual monopoly in the field of public health. In the words of one NGO official, “[y]ou can’t cough, scratch your head or sneeze in health without coming to the Gates Foundation.”19 The Foundation’s global influence is now so great that former CEO Jeff Raikes was obliged to declare: “We are not replacing the UN. But some people would say we’re a new form of multilateral organization.”



  96. Hufferd,

    You are spouting rhetorical bullshit again.

    You say a “republic is a general term”. Yes it is a general term, UNTIL it is specifically enumerated as it is in the Constitution. It is then a very SPECIFIC term; a “constitutional republic”

    You then go on with this twisted doublespeak:

    –“Rather, it formulates a republic representative of the People more broadly speaking = what is called a Representative Democracy (a more specific type and more accurate than just saying “a republic”, which could include a lot of different arrangements).”

    We have already determined that the Constitution delineates “a more specific type” of Republic. Do you want to speak “more broadly” or more ‘specifically’ Hufferd? You want to stretch towards the ‘broadly’ to inject “Representative Democracy” while at the same time saying it is more ‘specific’. But that term too can be used as generally as just saying a “republic” without the enumerated definition of such as expressed in the US Constitution.

    The US Constitution does not “include a lot of different arrangements” – the arrangements are specific and enumerated. A “Representative Democracy” could very well be “constituted” to mean a collectivist tyranny wherein Individual Rights are disparaged for the good of the whole, where “to each according to need” and “from each according to ability” is policy … in other words, a Marxist dictatorship of the proletariat. And this is IN FACT what you keep edging towards with your rhetorical twine of Bernaysian Newspeak.

    You attempt the term “the People” as a faceless mass, as if “the People” is not composed of unique sovereign individuals. You hand-wave the the words of the Declaration of Independence by such conceptualization, and you disregard as well the Bill of Rights which was demanded by these “People” as a necessary inclusion before the Constitution could be ratified. And this Bill of Rights contains the ingenious key to the “penumbra” of the rights not enumerated, by the inclusion of the 9th Amendment.



    • There is simply no controversy that the Federal Constitution founded a Republic. None whatsoever. And yet, Hufferd argued for close to a week, and is still arguing that the US was founded as a democracy.

      I finally had to bow out of the bullshit, it was obviously futile to try to make sense with this crank. Facts have no impact on Hufferd, he has his empty opinions and that’s how it is to him. That’s why this country went to the dogs – so many screwballs like James Hufferd, generation after generation of them.

Not only are there the disturbing Nazi connections to the founding of the group, but there are also the actually fascistic aims and agenda of the group and its members. At the 1968 Bilderberg conference in Canada, George Ball gave a talk entitled “Internationalization of Business.” Ball knew of where he spoke; he was an Undersecretary of State for Economic Affairs under Kennedy and Johnson, a Senior Managing Director for Lehman Bros and Kuhn Loeb Inc, and a member of the exclusive Bilderberg Steering Committee. The speech was chilling in its scope and implications, laying out a concept of a new world economic order based on the concept of a world company. It required the elimination of the nation state as a prerequisite to the implementation of the plan. As Ball himself asked, according to the meeting’s transcripts: “Where does one find a legitimate base for the power of corporate managements to make decisions that can profoundly affect the economic life of nations to whose governments they have only limited responsibility?” This is the Bilderberg vision of globalization; not the friendly trade and cooperation that they like to sell it as, but as the global fascistic takeover of the world’s resources by the rich and powerful that it really is.”~Corbett



  100. The Perpetual Attack on the 2nd Amendment Continues

    SUNDAY, 01 JUNE 2014 00:58 LAKE COUNTY NEWS REPORTS E-mail Print PDF
    “U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5), chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, has introduced the Promoting Healthy Minds for Safer Communities Act of 2014, major mental health and domestic violence legislation aimed at reducing and preventing gun violence.

    The legislation provides resources for mental health crisis intervention services; closes the gaps in current federal gun policy by clarifying and expanding existing federal prohibitors; provides states with the tools needed to strengthen and enforce gun violence prevention laws; and improves records reporting into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

    “While those suffering from mental illness are far more likely to be victims than perpetrators of violent crimes, we must also recognize that improving our mental health system is an essential component of reducing and preventing gun violence,” said Thompson.

    “This bill strengthens and improves intervention efforts, gives law enforcement additional tools to enforce laws and keep guns away from those who shouldn’t have them, and it improves the submission of mental health records into the criminal background check system,” Thompson continued. While no one law or set of laws can end gun violence, by taking these steps – and requiring background checks on all commercial gun sales – we can make our communities safer and prevent more shootings while respecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”

    The Promoting Healthy Minds for Safer Communities Act of 2014 helps keep guns away from those who are determined to pose a danger to themselves or others.

    The legislation prohibits the purchase or possession of a firearm by individuals subject to involuntary outpatient commitment if a court finds they pose a significant and dangerous threat to themselves or others.”


  101. The 9/11 Consensus Panel

    Consensus without trappings of nonsense seems a difficult stage to reach.
    The constrictions put on rendering the WHOLE TRUTH arises from a form of timidity, trying not to scare off a herd of frightened animals; from an attempt to persuade those who simply don’t give a damn about anything but bread and circuses.

    I have explained before the ways in which consensus itself is transient, a temporary alignment which is generally upheld by appeal to authority rather than firm and complete argumentation. Thus it is necessarily piecemeal. As such the pieces taxi from moment to moment; the weakest links never too far between.

    It is my opinion that the current, ‘Consensus Du Jour’ will only achieve a ‘Success Du Jour’ because they, like all authoritarian structures hand-wave legitimate dissent; because they like all authoritarian structures rely on cliquish familiarity and incestuous intellectual tendency. As some of my own compatriots here have noted the agency of short alphabetical insignia takes on the nature of a brand, ie; “PhD Inc.”

    Again it will frustrate some that I come not bearing solutions nor healing potions. It seems to me to be a plight of the species, the nature of the game in every aspect of that term… ‘The Most Dangerous Game’.


  102. War Gear Flows to Police Departments That Already Look and Act Like Military Units
    — 08 Jun 2014

    “As President Obama ushers in the end of what he called America’s “long season of war,” the former tools of combat – M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more – are ending up in local police departments, often with little public notice. During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft. The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units. Police SWAT teams are now deployed tens of thousands of times each year, increasingly for routine jobs.”

    Today’s capitalism, he argues, is inherently predatory and destructive:
    “Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era.”

    “A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”~John F. Kennedy

    “Terrorism*, directly or sponsored, has long been America’s weapon of mass destruction – its weapon of choice. As a strategy, it outdates ‘human rights’ and ‘democracy promotion’ and has proven itself to be far more effective by creating mayhem and fear, removing resistance to intervention. The events of 9/11 justified this age-old tactic. Although the tentacles of America’s terror tactic reach back far and spread wide, this article seeks to address the presence of ISIL (or ISIS).”~Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

  105. There are some things … like The PRINCE by Machiavelli, that reading it once and ‘getting it’, gives one a firm foundation for grasping political realities.

    Another such book is PROPAGANDA by Edward Bernays. Simple, universal concepts here. The architecture of political power is systemic. Personalities are designs from central casting. Design masquerades as diagnosis. All is theater – a passion play.

    People who think for themselves are the most dangerous threat to tyranny.

  106. Gary Oldman says those who have criticised Mel Gibson for his controversial comments are “fucking hypocrites”… Yea and I agree. Also I say fuck the ‘ADL’, who defame more people more often than anyone else with their tired and worn out “anti-Semitic” slur.

    Do the Jews run Hollywood? Does the Pope shit in the Vatican? Who the fuck is kidding who?
    Anyone who works in Hollywood knows damned well that the Jews run the place. I worked in the movie industry for years, and no one I know doubts for a moment Jewish power in the industry. Of course anyone who wants to keep a career there is going to keep their mouth shut on the topic, and like Oldman says, it is hypocritical.

  107. “The ministers, who preached at these revivals, were in earnest. They were zealous and sincere. They were not philosophers. To them science was the name of a vague dread — a dangerous enemy. They did not know much, but they believed a great deal. To them hell was a burning reality — they could see the smoke and flames. The Devil was no myth. He was an actual person, a rival of God, an enemy of mankind. They thought that the important business of this life was to save your soul — that all should resist and scorn the pleasures of sense, and keep their eyes steadily fixed on the golden gate of the New Jerusalem.

    They were unbalanced, emotional, hysterical, bigoted, hateful, loving, and insane. They really believed the Bible to be the actual word of God — a book without mistake or contradiction. They called its cruelties, justice — its absurdities, mysteries — its miracles, facts, and the idiotic passages were regarded as profoundly spiritual. They dwelt on the pangs, the regrets, the infinite agonies of the lost, and showed how easily they could be avoided, and how cheaply heaven could be obtained. They told their hearers to believe, to have faith, to give their hearts to God, their sins to Christ, who would bear their burdens and make their souls as white as snow.

    It seems to me impossible for a civilized man to love or worship, or respect the God of the Old Testament. A really civilized man, a really civilized woman, must hold such a God in abhorrence and contempt.

    For centuries Christendom was a madhouse. Popes, cardinals, bishops, priests, monks and heretics were all insane.””~Robert G. Ingersoll

    Is it not still a madhouse?

  109. I have studied theology and ‘comparative religion’ most of my adult life. I think all of the holy books are contradictory and based on fable. I cannot accept that any are the untarnished words of God. They were all composed by men. This is not to say that one cannot find wisdom in these texts. There is indeed great wisdom, but this must be parsed from other sections that are the ravings of lunatics. The ideas in fact cover the human spectrum from clear lucidity to rank psychosis. As some would say, there is something there for everybody. [Grimoire]

    However when the texts as a whole take on authority in the form of dogma, the repercussions are dangerous, as is painted vividly by history. Organized religion becomes more to do with the politics of power than spirituality, and due to the maxims of corruption and power; the spiritual message is corrupted as well. But this is what time does to systems that have already begun on this blend of absurdity and grace, the grandest of dichotomies. The term, the divine comedy comes to mind.

    This opinion certainly does not mean that I am not spiritual. I am in fact one of the most spiritual people I know. It is a personal and unique spirituality born of personal revelation. But that revelation is my own story…it is uniquely mine and would therefore make no more sense to another than these organized religions make to me. I can argue my beliefs, but I can not transmit my revelation, it cannot be said in human language, but only through analogies…just like the texts of the main religions. And to borrow from the Taoists, “like is not”.~ww

    There is an old oath used in courts of law, “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God.” This should remind us that all truth is relevant, as it completes a whole, that must adhere to a reasonable unity. Which truths are the most important cannot be sorted out properly until all the truths possible can be discovered. It is especially the issues of controversy that must be attended to, not shuttled aside for the convenience of an early consensus.

    The dangers of narrowing discovery is in narrowing the field of perpetrators unduly, as at a certain point the cast of characters can lead to the inescapable determination that a whole system has become corrupted. The concept of a ‘few bad apples’ has been used as empty excuse too many times to make such an assumption.

    And even such a discovery as that, the whole system being a corrupt criminal enterprise, is not unique or out of place, in that this has been established on a penumbra of other headings.


  110. “Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking-not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”~George Orwell, *1984


  111. Legitimizing Global Tyranny – Moving Towards World Government

    As we know, all institutionalized schooling has for many decades now been infiltrated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). At a meeting in 2009, Mr. Olabiyi Babalola Joseph Yai, Chair of UNESCO’s executive board, admitted the organization was created to “think global governance”:

    “You will recall, dear colleagues, that I said, before Mr Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, that UNESCO’s role is to think global governance. That is why the Organization was founded. We come to the rescue of the system especially when the economic machine runs out of steam, as it clearly has today. It is thus a matter of urgency to set up a long-term working group on global governance. I hope that a State or group of States will seize on this worthy proposal, and that the Organization, as of this session, will give it the attention it warrants.”

    In a 1968 publication by Louis Francois for UNESCO, the author elaborates on the need for a worldwide education-system as opposed to the old, discarded one which still recognized sovereignty of the nation-state.
    “We are witnessing the establishment of a new world order based upon the system of the United Nations”, Francois explains.

    All these statements do not fall out of the clear blue sky. UNESCO’s founder, Vice President of the Eugenics Society and foremost transhumanist Julian Huxley explained why global governance is crucial in his UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy:

    “Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.”

    Another “founding father” of the scientific dictatorship, Sir Bertrand Russell once explained:

    “Every government that has been in control of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen …”

    It would almost be amusing, this notion that UNESCO is merely picking up on ideas, if it were not so horribly cynical in the end. The calculated and synchronized move toward a brave new world is not a bottom-up thing, somehow evolving naturally from the grass roots; it is a top-down system, posing as grass roots, crafted to brainwash as large an audience as it can through the use of mass media, schooling systems and other available instruments of propaganda.~Jurriaan Maessen, in this brilliant essay I have chosen to digest here.

    However Maessen has not linked the germinating source of this New World Order design, which is Zionist as the proximate base.

    Oh, but of course most of the great visionary minds have been charged with “antisemitism”, even Orwell. And this is of course perfectly well understood as to why; the charge of antisemitism is a hushing blanket that has been successful for generations, instilling fear in those who would speak to this agenda of Zion. For many examples were made, careers ruined, lives crushed in a show of power unparalleled in modern times.

    I say this of course in anticipation to the charge leveled at myself. As has been the case on more than one occasion. But certainly any awareness of the real world can plainly see that Zionism is not a purely Jewish phenomena, that there are Zionists of every creed and color, subsidiary branchings with many brands and labels. So the idea that Antisemitism has anything to do with the facts of these matters is simply that hushing tool, a superstitious ‘taboo’ propagated to silence critics of this agenda.

    The only way to successfully predict the future is to design it. Where does this design originate?It originates in the Protocols of Zion, which spells out in detail the techniques to employ to bring us to this historical point after traveling the very path mapped out in the Protocols.

    And so to the problem of parsing the Pentagon witness statements, we have shown that it is not sufficient to merely accept that testimony in a vacuum, but to analyze the merits of it in the surrounding context of the event. One of the most essential being the witnesses POV, their position in relation to the Pentagon, distance from, and obstructions acknowledged.

    It is equally necessary to determine the reasonableness of their statements in view of simple human limitations to visual acuity.

    As per our assertions as to the psychological and physiological responses to:
    1.a bright flash, and 2. the effects of trauma.
    What argument is there available to counter with? Can it be denied that these are well developed concepts of both scientific realms? Do our opponents accept these as valid scientific principles? If so, can they make a successful argument that these principles are misapplied by “opinion”? As I anticipate this here, it be must realized that this counter argument can be determined a fallacy by the very scientific and rational reasoning that the concepts are themselves constructed of.

    As I can see it, only a novel approach will have any effect on our argument, and in this case, novel would mean synthetic, some rhetorical spin of the wholly fantastical.

  112. “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” – FDR letter to Colonel Edward House, Nov. 21 1933

    The truth is that the story of the secret banking conclave that gave birth to that Federal Reserve Act is as exciting and dramatic as any Hollywood screenplay or detective novel yarn, and all the more remarkable for the fact that it is all true.

    We pick up the story, appropriately enough, under cover of darkness. It was the night of November 22, 1910, and a group of the richest and most powerful men in America were boarding a private rail car at an unassuming railroad station in Hoboken, New Jersey. The car, waiting with shades drawn to keep onlookers from seeing inside, belonged to Senator Nelson Aldrich, the father-in-law of billionaire heir to the Rockefeller dynasty, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. A central figure on the influential Senate Finance Committee where he oversaw the nation’s monetary policy, Aldrich was referred to in the press as the “General Manager of the Nation.” Joining him that evening was his private secretary, Shelton, and a who’s who of the nation’s banking and financial elite: A. Piatt Andrew, the Assistant Treasury Secretary; Frank Vanderlip, President of the National City Bank of New York; Henry P. Davison, a senior partner of J.P. Morgan Company; Benjamin Strong, Jr., an associate of J.P. Morgan and President of Bankers Trust Co., and Paul Warburg, heir of the Warburg banking family and son-in-law of Solomon Loeb of the famed New York investment firm, Kuhn, Loeb & Company.

    The men had been told to arrive one by one after sunset to attract as little attention as possible. Indeed, secrecy was so important to their mission that the group did not use anything but their first names throughout the journey so as to keep their true identities secret even from their own servants and wait staff. The movements of any one of them would have been reason enough to attract the attention of New York’s voracious press, especially in an era where banking and monetary reform was seen as a key issue for the future of the nation; a meeting of all of them, now that would surely have been the story of the century. And it was.

    Their destination? The secluded Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia, home to the prestigious Jekyll Island Club whose members included the Morgans, Rockefellers, Warburgs and Rothschilds. Their purpose? Davison told intrepid local newspaper reporters who had caught wind of the meeting that they were going duck hunting. But in reality, they were going to draft a reform of the nation’s banking industry in complete secrecy.



  113. Frank Vanderlip wrote a casual admission of the meeting in the February 9, 1935 edition of The Saturday Evening Post:

    “I was as secretive—indeed, as furtive—as any conspirator.[…]I do not feel it is any exaggeration to speak of our secret expedition to Jekyll Island as the occasion of the actual conception of what eventually became the Federal Reserve System.”

    Over the course of their nine days of deliberation at the Jekyll Island club, they devised a plan so overarching, so ambitious, that even they could scarcely imagine that it would ever be passed by congress. As Vanderlip put it,

    “Discovery [of our plan], we knew, simply must not happen, or else all our time and effort would be wasted. If it were to be exposed publicly that our particular group had got together and written a banking bill, that bill would have no chance whatever of passage by Congress.”

    So what, precisely, did this conclave of conspirators devise at their Jekyll Island meeting? A plan for a central banking system to be owned by the banks themselves, a system which would organize the nation’s banks into a private cartel that would have sole control over the money supply itself. At the end of their nine day meeting, the bankers and financiers went back to their respective offices content in what they had accomplished. The details of the plan changed between its 1910 drafting and the eventual passage of the Federal Reserve Act, but the essential ideas were there.

  114. “The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it.” -John Kenneth Galbraith

    Throughout the late 19th century the United States is rocked by banking panics brought about by wild banking speculation and sharp contractions in credit. By the dawn of the 20th century, the bulk of the money in the American economy has been centralized in the hands of a small clique of industrial magnates, each with a near monopoly on a sector of the economy. There are the Astors in real estate, the Carnegies and the Schwabs in steel, the Harrimans, Stanfords and Vanderbilts in railroads, the Mellons and the Rockefellers in oil. As all of these families start to consolidate their fortunes, they gravitate naturally to the banking sector. And in this capacity, they form a network of financial interests and institutions that centered largely around one man, banking scion and increasingly America’s informal central banker in the absence of a central bank, John Pierpont Morgan.

    John Pierpont Morgan, or “Pierpont” as he prefers to be called, is born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1837 to Junius Spencer Morgan, a successful banker and financier. Morgan rides his father’s coattails into the banking business and by 1871 is partnered in his own firm, the firm that was eventually to become J.P. Morgan and Company.

    It is Morgan who finances Cornelius Vanderbilt’s New York Central Railroad. It is Morgan that finances the launch of nearly every major corporation of the period, from AT&T to General Electric to General Motors to Dupont. It is Morgan who buys out Carnegie and creates the United States Steel Corporation, America’s first billion dollar company. It is Morgan who brokers a deal with President Grover Cleveland to “save” the nation’s gold reserves by selling 62 million dollars worth of gold to the Treasury in return for government bonds. And it is Morgan, who, in 1907, sets in motion the crisis that leads to the creation of the Federal Reserve.~Corbett

    Rep. John Duncan: Do you think it would cause problems for the Fed or for the economy if that legislation was to pass?

    Ben Bernanke: My concern about the legislation is that if the GAO is auditing not only the operational aspects of our programs and the details of the programs, but is making judgements about our policy decisions, that would effectively be a takeover of monetary policy by the Congress, a repudiation of the independence of the Federal Reserve which would be highly destructive to the stability of the financial system, the dollar, and our national economic situation.

    Alan Greenspan: “The Federal Reserve is an independent agency and that means there is no other agency of government that can overrule actions that we take.”

    The Fed goes on in its self-mythologization to state that it is “not a private, profit-making institution.” This characterization is dishonest at best, and an outright lie at worst.

    The regional banks are themselves private corporations, as noted in a 1928 Supreme Court ruling: “Instrumentalities like the national banks or the federal reserve banks, in which there are private interests, are not departments of the government. They are private corporations in which the government has an interest.” This point is even admitted by the Federal Reserve’s own senior counsel.

    In other words Greenspan lied when he intimated that the Fed was an “agency” of the government. [parse, or deconstruct his quote above.-ww]

      Yvonne Mizusawa: Our regulations do specify overall terms for the lending, but the day to day operation of the banking activities are conducted by the Federal Reserve Banks. They are banks, and indeed they do lend…

      Peter W. Hall: So they’re their own agency, then, essentially, in that regard.

      Yvonne Mizusawa: They are not agencies, your honor, they are “persons” under FOIA. Each Federal Reserve Bank, the stock is owned by the member banks in the district, 100% privately held, they are private boards of directors. The majority of those boards are appointed by the independent banks, private banks in the district. They are not agencies.

  116. Alexander Hamilton, the Banker’s Boy who brought the US a Central Government to install a Central Bank

    “We now know that for centuries the people of the United States have been at war with the international banking oligarchs. That war was lost, seemingly for good, in 1913, with the creation of the Federal Reserve. With the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, President Woodrow Wilson consigned the American population to a century in which the money supply itself has depended on the whims of the banking cabal. A century of booms and busts, bubbles and depressions, has led to a wholesale redistribution of wealth toward those at the very top of the system. At the bottom, the masses toil in relative poverty, single-income households becoming double-income households out of necessity, their quality of life being slowly eroded as the Federal Reserve Notes that pass for dollars are themselves devalued.

    Worse yet, the fraud itself perpetuates Alexander Hamilton’s persistent myth that a national debt is necessary at all. The US is now locked into a system whereby the government issues bonds to generate the funds for their operations, bonds that are backed up by the taxation of the public’s own labor.”~Corbett


  117. “The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.”~Carroll Quigley — Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World In Our Time

  120. “Lone Wolf” Law Enforcement: America’s Real “Homegrown Extremism”

    By James F. Tracy — Global Research, July 16, 2014
    Url of this article:

    “Eric Holder wants to convey his all-consuming concern over “lone wolf homegrown violent extremists” who have “domestic concerns”.

    On July 13 Holder remarked on ABC’s This Week that such bogeys keep him “up late at night” as he and his cohorts attempt “to monitor them, anticipate what it is that they are going to do.”[1]

    The Attorney General’s hand wringing is compounded by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s most recent “research” report. The document seeks to inform “law enforcement about the increasingly hostile anti-government movement” the SPLC claims “has grown from 150 groups in 2008 to nearly 1,100 last year.”[2]

    In early June,” the study intones,

    two rabid government haters who spent time at the [Bundy] ranch, Jerad and Amanda Miller, strolled into a Las Vegas pizza parlor, walked past a pair of police officers eating lunch, turned and executed the two men [sic]. Leaving a Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me Flag,” a note saying the revolution had begun and a swastika on the officers’ bodies, the couple went on to murder another man before dying in a shootout with police.[3]

    “But recent history strongly suggests how Holder’s crocodile fears and the SPLC’s associated terror mongering are grossly disingenuous. The DOJ’s foremost policing agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has since 9/11 been the nation’s greatest purveyor of “domestic terrorism.” What goes unstated in corporate news media coverage of the issue is the fact that the FBI’s wanton extremism is self-generated largely to marshal public opinion behind the so-called “war on terror” and thereby justify the broader police state’s continued existence and expansion.

    As journalist Trevor Aaronson revealed after an extensive examination of the FBI’s post-9/11 “anti-terrorism” techniques, for over a decade the agency

    has built the largest network of spies ever to exist in the United States—with ten times as many informants on the streets today as there were during the infamous Cointelpro operations under J. Edgar Hoover—with the majority of these spies focused on ferreting out terrorism in Muslim communities.[6]

    With this in mind, one needn’t stretch their imagination very far to consider the designs the FBI is likely undertaking to foster its “war on [domestic] terrorism.” Such immense schemes are more than sufficient cause to further rethink the already ambiguous roles played by the “Vegas shooters” in last month’s apparent massacre.

    Eric Holder and the SPLC are well aware of their own duplicity. The fact that they parade around waving the flag of civil rights should by no means place them beyond the deep scrutiny they so richly deserve. Moreover, their fear-based sermonizing is pitched to the most obtuse and impressionable sectors of the public—those the media routinely inoculate against historical reality, critical thought, and informed citizenship.”

Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.

    Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, and declared that the fire originated from Finland as a basis launching the Winter War four days later.

    Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this).

  128. Greater Israel Through The Eichmann Plan

    Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states.

    Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya on The Yinon Plan (1982) “ … a continuation of Britain’s colonial design in the Middle East”:

    “(The Yinon plan) is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.

    “Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge from an Arab state. This is why Iraq was outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one for Shiite Muslims and the other for Sunni Muslims. The first step towards establishing this was a war between Iraq and Iran, which the Yinon Plan discusses.”

    At the time Yinon wrote, the eight year, Western driven Iran-Iraq war was into its second year – with another six grinding years of loss, tragedy and heartbreak, valleys of widows, orphans, maimed, on both sides of their common border. The toll on life and health was compared to World War 1. Iraq of course, in an historic error, had virtually been fighting a proxy war for an American regime, even then obsessed with Islam, which, in Iran they had decided was the wrong sort of Islam. What the faith of a nation thousands of miles away had to do with Capitol Hill, remains a mystery.

    The day after that devastating war ended, the US replaced Iraq over the then USSR as the country which was the biggest threat to America. A devastated, war torn nation of, at the time, just under seventeen million people. (2)

    “There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts … around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. (US armed forces will keep) the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.

  131. “Anyone seeing a pattern developing here? Anyone?
    Coincidence? Bullshit.”~Scott

    As an artist ‘pattern recognition’ is my forte.

    As a critical analyst, conjecture and supposition take a back seat to proofs and evidence.

    “Look before you leap”…

    There is a constant MO that has developed here on Scott’s site.

    It is like a plug in script for all incidents that “nothing really happened, it is all fabricated theater”.
    But real events do happen, and then the perceptions of these events are manipulated. “Real or Memorex” isn’t best deciphered by a rote template.

    Maybe – Maybe Not – But Certainly Maybe.

    In forensic sciences “maybe” won’t do. A non sequitur is a conclusion that does not follow the premise. A premise can be conjecture, the conclusion must be proven.
    Deductive Reason combined to Ultimate Fact is Adduced to Conclusion. Proper sequence is of paramount importance.


    • Scott Creighton is chickenshit – he just banned me for criticizing his arguments (the comment before this) on his Willy Loman site. What a punk! Lol.

      Yea! I said you’re a PUNK Creighton! You can quote me motherfucker!!

        Of course I am the last person to be banned there… “i ban them for being a-hole trolls like he was.”

        For the record, I was merely frank in my assessment of Creighton’s vapid premise that isn’t supported by more than conjecture.

        After he banned me I made the remarks here about him being a punk, but I didn’t intimate any insult such as that to him in the comments I made. I simply wrote a short description of the proper course of legitimate forensic research using deductive reasoning. What he means by “a-hole troll” is nothing but empty ad hominem, he doesn’t say anything substantive as to what I was wrong about in my assessment. His remarks following that comment were just an emotional response of snarky smart ass jive.

        Scott is trapped in a cascade of conjecture that is not supported by hard facts, just circumstantial evidence that can be interpreted in several ways, but none conclusive.
        There could be more to this reaction by him than his enormous ego. But at this point that would be my guess as where the root problem lays with Scott Creighton.

      • Ego is like snoring… No one sees or hears their own… But everyone complains about others’.

        I have often enjoyed the benefit of clarity that comes with being an outsider when observing people.. And, never having been an insider to anything or anywhere (not necessarily always by choice or wisdom) has allowed me to have a lot of experience in this respect. The only thing I have to keep reminding myself is that others can always look at me, and equally easily pinpoint my patterns of behavior that can be criticized.. Therefore, I try to keep a non-judgmental outlook. It is in this context that I’d like to ask you:

        I read your blog quite often, actually. And, I enjoy, and get informed by some of what you write. So, first and foremost, my thanks for those.

        And, more often than not, I see you fighting… Fighting day in, day out… Unlike most, you seem to enjoy the fighting and verbally slashing, slaughtering, humiliating people with damn good and damn intelligent arguments with rich, elastic, smart and almost thesaural language… And I have learned to ignore your self-congratulatory condescending tone, just because I now know you mean every single word of it… :-}

        That’s all fine, and to some extent, admirable… But, my very sincere question to you is: To what end?

        To what end all this fighting? How big, or in fact, how real is your maxitwat’s negative impact on “the cause” that he deserves this much of your energy and intellect??… If he is indeed the twat that you say he is, what’s a brain like you doing fighting a twat? His commentary is so subpar that it’s beginning to look like (please excuse the lack of eloquence) you are just enjoying “masturbating on a twat” so to speak… Wouldn’t your deep intellect and knowledge be better spent on….something….? I think it would… And I think it would be good, if not great…

        But, most importantly…. As painfully fun and self-satisfying searching for 9/11 and other truths might have been, the clock has run out I am afraid. By forcing well meaning people to keep fighting shadows, the twats have done their job and to a great extent and won the truth war by pacifying the truth seekers until it became irrelevant and inconsequential.

        I do lurk around T&S and many other 9/11 forums. And, in some, I sadly observe a certain hope of finally getting one inch closer to “victory”… In many, I observe a certain sense of optimism about the fact that more and more people are finally waking up. And in even more of them, a sense of accomplishment for exposing, guarding and fighting for political and scientific truths.

        This type of hope and optimism and sense of accomplishment can only be resembled to the hope and optimism I imagine the firefighters felt while running up the stairs of WTC towers to finish off a fire they were certain was manageable. Their valiant efforts ultimately as inconsequential as the planes that started the fire, considering the demolition sequence that was soon to be initiated… The “manageable” fire was never put out…

        We might have to delay 9/11 truth victory plans for 7 years or so… Because, when the head of the IMF speaks such gibberish, and in the 7th month of the year whose numbers add up to 7 Israel launches a bible-prophecy fulfilling Gaza invasion via a false flag event, and another 7-laden false flag event occurs near the border of a contentious region, and pre-packaged sabre-rattling propaganda floods the airwaves, I take that gibberish extremely seriously. I am not smart enough to interpret her self-fulfilling prophecies and code, but nonetheless, it certainly feels like the demolition has been initiated, while most of us are still busy infighting with all our might, valiantly pushing and shoving and fighting our way up the staircase of 9/11 truth.

        What to do now?

      • In Willys case with Maxifool, it’s about seeing it through to a conclusion and not letting an idiot best you with rhetoric and innuendo. Maxitoad isn’t the first, probably not the last. Have a look at Agent Albury Smith

      • Very true, verytwo. It’s just that the word “twat” lent itself to much richer (and funnier) metaphors… :-}] So I picked him as the one who represents all of the conscious, subconscious and unconscious derailment agents that we have suffered from during the past 13 years, just like we have since the beginning of time…

        Through Willy, I am somewhat familiar with Agent Smith’s crud… As well as countless others..?

        Once again, I have nothing but respect for what Willy and people like him do, and have done during those 13 years… And I still hold the belief that 9/11 is the center stone of any effort to possibly demonstrate to the masses what kind and what size of a psychopathic force has been blowing the winds of change. But, while these processes might have had a slight chance of succeeding in a world where the rule of law is somewhat functioning, it has zero chance of succeeding in a failed and infested state that the US has become.

        The question is whether or not the information war by internet foot soldiers can continue during a real war. Never worked in the past…

        Thank you for your reply, verytwo. I appreciate it.

      • Hi again Lilaleo,

        Thank you for your further remarks here, I enjoy reading your commentary.

        Let me formulate a response of sorts by addressing a rather core question:

        You ask:
        “To what end?
        To what end all this fighting?”

        I am and have been a martial artist for most of my life. It is in fact part of a spiritual quest, and a grasp of the “Chi”*. We might define that as ‘balance’ – physical, mental and spiritual.

        A Poem (metaphor):

        You know what you’re here for
        You’d sing it if you had the chance
        The world is the music
        And life is the dance
        (ww – 1978)

        So Lilaleo, do you know what ‘kata’ is? It is Japanese for ‘patterns or movements’ it’s physical essence is ‘dance’

        (*T’ai chi ch’uan)

        Returning to your question, “To what end all this fighting?”

        There is no ‘end’ … “Life goes on within you and without you.”
        This is why “Might is Right” is error, as the philosophy is manifest as “Ends justify means”, but in fact means DEFINE ends, and further, ‘ends’ are synthetic, artifact, and thus subjective.

        The proximate answer to your question then is; it is not ‘fighting’ it is taking part in the dance – it is practicing dance steps, it is exercise as kata, and it is a life’s song.

        If you ponder and think on this, you may find that it addresses more of what you say as well…

      • Yeah… I think there’s a show on Japanese TV called Kata With The Stars… ;-}]

        When you pull a simple, material question in to the realm of philosophy, you make it a little difficult to reply to you without challenging some core philosophies you subscribe to. But I was not here to do that… Not this time, anyway…

        The “end” I was asking about was not alluding to a spiritual or existential “end”, but it was more about the 9/11 twat-swatter dance step of yours. If I asked you when the wash cycle was going to end, I doubt you’d answer “there is no beginning, no end” etc. right?

        I do get your point about the dance. But, isn’t dancing to their life’s beat exactly what every single person is doing as well, even if they are not knowledgeable enough to reference what they are doing to some eastern teaching. At this discotheque of life, I’m usually the one sitting in the back of the room watching the dance floor… And, I have often observed that people who think a lot and who know a lot just can’t let it loose.

        Now, going back to my original question… And I’ll try to choose my words more carefully this time around:

        In your opinion, when and where is the 9/11 truth wash cycle going to end???? Or will the fuze blow out and burn the whole house down before the rinse cycle even starts?

    • It’s funny that Creighton is one of CIT’s harshest critics – but he sees it as “obvious” that there was “no plane crash” in the MH-17 event in Kiev.

      What? Are you Hasbara Scott? Is Mossad going to get your old junk car replaced for you now? What’s with this stupid skip to the loo, convoluted anal hurlant from you these days?

      Ah yes the entanglements one finds themselves in trying to get that Paypal button pushed all day long every day. Aye Scott? That’s what sent Radi Cuntananda {C2} to the hamper searching for stinky panties.


  132. MH-17: Beware of the «Chameleon»
    Wayne MADSEN 21.07.2014 00:00

    “The 10-day NATO exercise code named «BREEZE 2014» has ended in Black Sea. The exercise, which included the use of electronic warfare and electronic intelligence aircraft such as the Boeing EA-18G Growler and the Boeing E3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), coincided with the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine, some 40 miles from the Russian border. NATO ships and aircraft had the Donetsk and Luhansk regions under total radar and electronic surveillance.

    MH-17 was shot down over a region where Russian-speaking separatist forces have been battling against the alliance of the Ukrainian armed forces and a private mercenary force answerable to a Ukrainian-Jewish billionaire oligarch.”

    “The seizure of the air traffic control center at Borispol by allies of Kolomoisky shortly before the shooting down of MH-17 and Kolomoisky’s strong links to Israel, which benefitted immensely from the downing of MH-17 because it drew the attention of the world’s media away from its ground invasion of Gaza, which began just as initial reports about the fate of MH-17 were being transmitted, may be the real story behind the loss of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 and the horrible deaths of its 298 passengers and crew.”
    ~Wayne Madsen



  133. Editorial Position of the New York Times: “Thumbs Up for Gaza Slaughter”
    By Norman Solomon
    Global Research, July 21, 2014

    “Over the weekend, the New York Times sent out a clear signal: the mass slaughter of civilians is acceptable when the Israeli military is doing the killing.

    Under the headline “Israel’s War in Gaza,” the most powerful newspaper in the United States editorialized that such carnage is necessary. The lead editorial in the July 19 edition flashed a bright green light — reassuring the U.S. and Israeli governments that the horrors being inflicted in Gaza were not too horrible.

    From its first words, the editorial methodically set out to justify what Israel was doing.

    “After 10 days of aerial bombardment,” the editorial began, “Israel sent tanks and ground troops into Gaza to keep Hamas from pummeling Israeli cities with rockets and carrying out terrorist attacks via underground tunnels.”

    The choice of when to date the start of the crisis was part of the methodical detour around inconvenient facts.

    For instance, no mention of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s June 30 announcement that the “human animals” of Hamas would “pay” after three Israeli teenagers kidnapped in Israeli-controlled territory in the West Bank were found dead. No mention of the absence of evidence that Hamas leadership was involved in those murders.

    Likewise, absent from the editorializing sequence was Israel’s June “crackdown” in the West Bank, with home raids, area closures, imprisonment of hundreds of Hamas party activists including legislators.

    Most of all, the vile core of the Times editorial was its devaluation of Palestinian lives in sharp contrast to Israeli lives.

    The Times editorial declared that Hamas leaders “deserve condemnation” for military actions from civilian areas in the dense Gaza enclave — but Netanyahu merited mere expressions of “concern” about “further escalation.” Absent from the editorial was any criticism of Israel’s ongoing bombardment of homes, apartment blocks, hospitals, beaches and other civilian areas with U.S.-supplied ordinance….

    By the lights of the Oval Office and the New York Times editorial boardroom, lofty rhetoric aside, the proper role of Palestinian people is to be slaughtered into submission.”

  134. One will notice that not a peep has been uttered by Scott Creighton on the distraction from the newest Israeli invasion of Gaza that the MH-17 story is. But all the while he is pointing to everyone else as “Sunstein agents, distracting” from a non-event. He has nailed Alex Jones, Robert Perry and Joseph Watson as agitprop… but of course Creighton is clean because, because … because? Because of the wonderful things he does!! Lol
    And of course he has painted me with his same “Disinfo” brush as everyone else who spits on his parade of colored party balloons.

  135. Have you watched this video yet?

    Christine Lagarde on numerology… speech January 2014

    July 20, 2014 … hmmm?

    • She starts this speech with, “I do as I am told…”

      Then she gives a very strange talk on occult numerology. Surely a message for the elite (and those researching the elite).

      “I am going to talk about the Magic 7″~Lagarde

      “2014, drop the zero; 2 x 7= 14”

      She does not note that 2+0+1+4 = 7 as well.

      “G7 may have something to do with “change”
      or perhaps G20…”

      What does the 20 mean? Everything revolved around 7 in numerology up to this point.

      Q. Is it meant to signify a date? Perhaps 7-20-2014?

      A. 7-20-2014 is the date of the newest Israeli invasion of Gaza and the MH-17 event in Ukraine meant to distract from that invasion.

      Remember Lagarde gave this speech in January of this year, 2014. An important message from the head of IMF.

      Can you say, WTF?

      • The point here is, it doesn’t matter if YOU believe in numerology, or if I believe in numerology; what matters is that THEY believe in numerology, and use it as a symbolic language to covertly message each other.


      • Yes, this was one f’d up speech my Mme. Lagarde… And quite shameless at that…

        However, it certainly does not show that “they” believe in numerology.

        It’s more likely that all this number-talk is messaging for “their” troops, implants, agents who speak the coded language. A huge declaration of war hiding in plain site…. It is far more likely that it was a coded message to announce the “go ahead” for their final mission to force the world towards their end game: a controlled demolition of world’s nations, cause havoc and chaos to push their grand scheme over the hill.

      • Hi Lilaleo,

        Let me rephrase that then; when I say “they believe in numerology” I mean they use it for planning. These events do not haphazardly fall on these dates. They use the numbers in this way and have for a long time (centuries).

        I suppose my short appearance on Scott’s site brings your curiosity by here?

        Has Creighton the cretin put 2 + 2 together to note that all this spin – including his about the MH-17 event is blatantly cover and distraction from the Israeli ground incursion on Gaza that started the same date?
        Perhaps you can remind Mr PR Everyman, as he has banned my commentary.

        Thanks for dropping by Lelaleo, don’t be such a stranger…

      • “I suppose my short appearance on Scott’s site brings your curiosity by here?”

        Not at all, HR1… Been a subscriber to your blog for a long time now, and i try to read as much as my time and enthusiasm allows. But, i am afraid not only the technical aspects of 9/11 are not my area of direct interest, but also, I find your ongoing spat with Maxiwhatever and his ilk a little too personal for my blood.

        As for Scott… As I had commented on your blog once, Scott is what Scott does. His style and intentions are transparent to me whether I agree with him or not. As I got older, I have learned to appreciate people with a WYSWYG existence, and his site has provided invaluable reporting for me for the past few years.

        I seem to have recently fallen out of grace there when I reacted and commented on the kneejerk, superficial, myopic and ignorant, biblical “evil jews” rhetoric many of the commenters were engaging in on his pages. i had attempted to point out that the Israeli three-teenagers false flag and the subsequent invasion of Gaza, when viewed within the perspective of everything else happening around the world, could not have been for the petty goal of killing some palestinians and taking over their gas or water, and that it had to have been a trigger for something much much bigger…. We all know that the invasion of Poland by Germany was not the goal but a trigger for much worse to come… In any case, ironically, all those people, along with Scott, seem to have turned their back on the intensifying Gaza situation and have chosen to concentrate on the downing of MH17… (Sevens wherever you look :-})



      • Lilaleo,
        So I notice that agitprop agents like Scott Creighton have an MO; they oink out reams of argumentum verbosium on trivial bullshit – but conveniently fail to take note of what the event really means in the larger picture. And his readership gets caught up in all the bullshit, and the thought of the larger agenda being served never occurs to them.
        They are “agitated” by such propaganda techniques, and manipulated emotionally, as well as led astray by non sequitur barrages.

        I make Creighton nervous because I can deconstruct his bullshit. And a good deal of it is simple bullshit because Creighton buys into his own egotistical PR; and his critical thinking skills are mediocre at best.

        And yes he does “wish he was as smart as me,” to paraphrase one of his feeble attempts at satire.


    • Well Lilaleo,

      I have had the same arguments with people on many blogs. The tendency to blame the Jews as a people is shared by too many who do not grasp the nature of political power.

      It is not the Jewish people who are to blame, it is the credo of Might is Right, that is exemplified in Zionism, or what Zionism provides as illusion – that it is a Jewish cause.
      Zionism has nothing whatsoever to do with religion, and those of many denominations believe in the meme of ‘Might is Right’, and that the ‘Means are justified by the Ends’; inseparable twin concepts.

      So here, where my lexicon reigns supreme, the term “Zionist” has nothing whatsoever to do with the Jewish people. And I don’t have time for people with tissue thin skin anymore, nor prudes and nannyshits.

      One thing is, that just like the brainwashed Amerikans, Jews need to wake up and smell the blood. They need to question their leadership and what they have been led to believe about their own heritage. The Rabbi elite has been playing this “Chosen People” scam on them for centuries.

      • I certainly understand that strong self-confidence can and will be interpreted as ‘arrogance’ by some.

        It is certainly fine by me. For the most part the goings along of the herd are simply a historical reality. This is the way it has always been. Could it have been different?

        I do not think the proportion of critical self-thinkers has varied much throughout the ages, even in the postmodern era of the Internet there lies that old axiom; “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink” … and if you do, it could be characterized as ‘waterboarding’ – couldn’t it? Yes it could.

        So we will take torture off the table and let them eat their pizza and drink their beer while they watch TV for their daily programming.



      Ancient occult ‘liability/indemnity clause’.

      Remember; “Ignorance is no excuse under the Law”.


    • Just goes to show the power of propaganda. The assholes are cheering. Next the psychopaths will be giving out medals to the troops for their bravery killing mostly defenseless people corralled into what has been described as the biggest open air prison on the planet. Ever read “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”?. Ah yes kill the children too, the little snakes.

      • “Ever read “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”?”~Veri

        Yes indeed, a cold hard lesson in state psychopathy. It is really hard to take isn’t it?

      • The stat is, 91% in Israel are onside with what’s going on as stated by MSM. But then it is state media isn’t it shoveling dung smelling disinfo at those bought into it by the scoop bucket load.

      • “The stat is, 91% in Israel are onside with what’s going on..”

        Well it is near certain that the majority of Israelis have been whipped into a frenzy of fear and loathing by the media and the warmongering military PR. It is fuckin’ “Sieg Heil” time in Tel Aviv tonight!

  136. Israel using flechette shells in Gaza 20 Jul 2014
    The Israeli military is using flechette shells, which spray thousands of tiny and potentially lethal metal darts, in its military operation in Gaza. Six flechette shells were fired towards the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, on 17 July, according to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) did not deny using the shells in the conflict. B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organisation, describes a flechette shell as “an anti-personnel weapon that is generally fired from a tank.”

    Gaza crisis: Palestinian death toll climbs past 500 as hospital is hit 21 July 2014
    The Palestinian death toll in the conflict between Hamas and Israel reached 548 on Monday as officials said four were killed when a Gaza hospital was hit by Israeli fire … It followed the bloodiest day of the conflict so far on Sunday when at least 120 Palestinians were killed in Shujai’iya, a third of them women and children. Thirteen Israeli soldiers were also killed – two of them US citizens – in the heaviest loss of life for the Israeli military in years.


  137. A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash – suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.
    Girkin, also known as Strelkov and allegedly a former Russian military intelligence agent, said he couldn’t confirm the information.
    He claimed that a large amount of blood serum and medications were found in the wreckage.

    This is interesting. It is only conjecture to begin with, plus if there were dead bodies aboard, it may not mean something nefarious. I had heard that many of the passengers were scientists working on AIDS. The factoid that “a large amount of blood serum and medications were found in the wreckage,” might indicate that part of the passengers were a research team bringing specimens elsewhere for professional reasons.
    All is based on conjecture at this point.

  138. Russia’s info release on MH17. The US was prematurely quick to lay blame on them. Why?

    Activist Post: MH17 Show and Tell: It’s the West’s Turn #news

    Pretty damn obvious this is a psyop by western intelligence… and it can be as sloppy as an old whore’s cunt because of the psychic jamming of corporatist media in the west.

    ‘Amerikan Exceptionalism’ is exceptionally stupid!


    In 1975 the Trilateral Commission, a Western European, Japanese, US corporate think-tank convened by David Rockefeller, issued a report entitled, “The Crisis of Democracy.” (NYU Press, 1975) Authored by none other than Samuel Huntington. (“Clash of Civilizations”).

    Huntington’s book is a blueprint for the on-going counter-revolution in America, emphasizing the elite requirement of suppressing democratic “insurgency,” the “distemper” of the 60s, a “distemper” that according to Huntington, stemmed from an “excess of democracy.” The only and final solution therefore is to “moderate” and “shrink democracy,” concluding that, “there are potentially desirable limits to the indefinite extension of political democracy.”


    • What they do not realize is; if you create a dog-eat-dog world, chances are you will eventually be eaten by dogs. That is part of ‘practical politics’.
      As far as ‘security’ is concerned; when your guard dogs are starving you just look like meat to them.

  140. “I am not smart enough to interpret her self-fulfilling prophecies and code, but nonetheless, it certainly feels like the demolition has been initiated, while most of us are still busy infighting with all our might, valiantly pushing and shoving and fighting our way up the staircase of 9/11 truth.
    What to do now?”~Lilaleo

    There is insight of your own here that you may not consciously recognize:

    You say “self-fulfilling prophecies and code” … this gets to the core of what has been the ‘game-plan’ for centuries; the grand strategy of tension: the threat of Armageddon. Designing the future to appear to fulfill Biblical Prophesy. The political creation of Israel is a key element in reading this Biblical script put in play, and a diabolical ballet on the edge of the abyss.
    One can grasp the Protocols as a driving element in this perpetual process – a state of ‘stasis/becoming’ through synthetic Hegelian cycles…

    Stories are attractive and compelling to human beings. Mythic stories and their ancient urgency has universal appeal. There is tension and release, mystery and resolution. And MOVEMENT!! The sensations of LIFE!

    Would you really have it any other way?

    What to do now Lilaleo? What you will.

    • Thank you for your reply, Willy.

      I was certainly not unconscious when I chose those words. The “prophecy” scam has been working like a charm on the masses since the dawn of time… And I see no sign that would suggest it’s not going to work this time.

      We were taught that history is written, we then realize it’s usually rewritten, but ultimately find out that most of it was actually pre-written…

      Yes, indeed… We will all do what we will do… What else to do, right?

      “Would you really have it any other way?”

      And to your rhetorical question… If you can show me a single person that has managed to “have it another way”, maybe I wanna look in to it…. Until then, I’d say that LIFE thing you speak of is definitely the way to go…

      I say these are dance steps d’Meta4 and not fisticuffs. Even if we remain temporal, and attend to the mondo carne practical existence. Even here “ends” are metaphor to a synthetic sequence of philosophical construction. In other words, everything can be said to be “philosophical” in the subtext.

      I claim this to be ‘dance’ because I am not ‘criticizing’ Lilaleo, I am merely presenting my impressions of what I see as happening in our relationships to what we deem as “reality”, and the assumptions that are revealed in the subtext of the choice of language to use.
      Empirical Reality is in fact an applied philosophy that is often socially sublimated.

      Certain assumptions are held as ‘basic fact’ – even though we know that our perceptions are a matter of our own consciousness. We also know that habituation programming creates an “unconscious”, often claimed to be inaccessible without “therapy” by some “authority”.

      It is my experience that these assertions are simply not so. There is no border between what is consciously known and subconsciously known that is not policed by our own mental facility. Sublimation points in our experience may contain pain as a “guard” to that border, but as hard as some emotions generated by trauma are to bear, the ground they conceal is some of the most critical information about your being that you have in your memories. It is the ‘guards’ which are the demons, not the events they conceal.

      “Know thyself” ~Wakan Tanka

      Now. What can be known with absolute certainty? Only that we are. What we are, who we are and where we are remains supposition. This is why I assert that the ’empirical’ is a philosophical supposition.

        But, the more we chat, the more it feels like your own satisfaction seems to be the only driving force. It’s a bit of a paradox, isn’t it, to be passionately and knowledgeably writing about and researching a subject, but having little or no interest in any actionable strategies that may actually yield real results and may save real lives by preventing further wars and destruction? And, while defending the 9/11 blogosphere from all kinds of undesireables, allowing it to wither away by spending time with dimwit trolls, and allowing it to crumble because of personal vendettas that go back because of some disagreement on who is more right about which fuckin’ alphabet chemical explosive was used, who is a shill, and who is a troll and who has balls and who doesn’t.

  142. The Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: Financial Warfare against Russia, Multibillion Dollar Bonanza for Wall Street

    By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
    Global Research, July 22, 2014
    Url of this article:

    While the mainstream media casually accuses Moscow without evidence of having orchestrated the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines MH17 in liaison with the Donesk rebels, the backlash of the crisis on international financial markets and on Russia’s financial system has passed virtually unnoticed.

    Moreover, the political threats and insinuations directed against the Russian Federation in the wake of the July 17 disaster, have been coupled with a renewed wave of economic sanctions directed against major Russian corporations and financial institutions.

    Inside Information and Foreknowledge

    The conduct of speculative operations both prior and in the wake of the July 17 crash, is also a major consideration: In the functioning of World financial markets, terror events, natural disasters as well as major tragedies such as MH17 will invariably have an impact on the short term behavior of financial markets including major stock markets, the foreign exchange market as well the energy and commodities markets.

    It should be noted that foreknowledge of a terror event such as the MH17 crash of July 17 over Eastern Ukraine’s warzone, offers an opportunity to the perpetrators as well as those who have advanced knowledge of the terror event to conduct profitable speculative transactions on various financial markets. Cui bono? Wall Street or Moscow’s Financial Establishment?

    In other words, those who planned the attack on MH17 (including their political and economic sponsors) had in their possession valuable and confidential information which could be used in large scale speculative undertakings, including options trade on the DJIA, the Moscow Stock exchange (MICEX), foreign exchange markets, not to mention speculative trade (e.g. put options) on airline stocks.

  143. Kerry’s diplomacy aids Israeli bloodbath in Gaza
    By Barry Grey
    23 July 2014
    As Israel escalated its murderous attack on Gaza on Tuesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry met with Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to promote an Egyptian ceasefire plan backed by Israel that amounts to a demand for abject surrender by Hamas.
    The plan, already rejected last week by the Islamist movement, requires that the Palestinians in Gaza end all military resistance to Israel’s blockade of the impoverished territory. It does not address Hamas’ demands for a lifting of the blockade and release of hundreds of Hamas supporters arrested last month during Israel’s weeks-long rampage on the West Bank.
    Despite the overwhelming military superiority of Israel and the isolation of Hamas, the Islamist movement has mounted a level of resistance that has taken the Zionist regime and its American backers by surprise. On Tuesday, after Hamas rockets landed near the Tel Aviv airport, the US Federal Aviation Administration suspended all US commercial flights into and out of Israel.
    The ceasefire proposal was worked out between Washington and Cairo, with the support of the Arab League, the United Nations, the European Union and the US/Israeli puppet Palestinian Authority government of Mahmoud Abbas, to provide a cover for Israel to launch its ground invasion and dramatically expand its assault on the Palestinian population of Gaza. It was designed to provoke a rejection by Hamas in an attempt to foist responsibility for the mass killing in Gaza on the Palestinian leadership there.
    Egypt is directly aiding the Israeli military onslaught by keeping the Gaza/Egypt border crossing at Rafah sealed, preventing the Palestinians from seeking refuge in Egypt.
    The US-led “diplomatic offensive” gives Israel a green light to continue its mass killing. It serves as a political accompaniment to Tel Aviv’s military violence.

      It makes my jaw twitch watching this goofy shit coming from “the government”…

    • So when this spokesperson for the State Department says, “Take a step back”, is this code to the journalist to “back off”? It is a covert message to the questioner?

  146. Lying is “Good For Business”: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Mainstream Media (MSM) are “Serial Liars”

    By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
    Global Research, July 24, 2014

    The powerful voices of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) exert a decisive influence on the formulation of US foreign policy.

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) describes itself as “independent and nonpartisan…[and] an indispensable resource in a complex world.”

    Its website at http://www.cfr.org is heralded as “a trusted, nonpartisan source of timely analysis on international events and trends.” It’s authoritative Journal Foreign Affairs “is widely considered to be the most influential magazine for the analysis and debate of foreign policy and economics.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    “What Does the MSM have to Say Regarding Israel’s War on Gaza?

    It is what you might describe as a MSM-CFR Consensus.

    The latest pitch in the Wall Street Journal by an authoritative NYU Law Professor is that because civilians in Gaza are “supportive of terrorism” they should be held accountable for their own deaths:

    Let’s state the obvious: No one likes to see dead children. Well, that’s not completely true: Hamas does. … With this conflict about to enter its third week, winning the PR war is the best Hamas can hope to achieve. Their weapon of choice, however, seems to be the cannon fodder of their own people…

    The asymmetry is complicated even further by the status of these civilians [victims of Israeli bombing and shelling]. Under such maddening circumstances, are the adults, in a legal and moral sense, actual civilians?

    The people of Gaza overwhelmingly elected Hamas, a terrorist outfit dedicated to the destruction of Israel, …

    What did Gazans think was going to happen? Surely they must have understood on election night that their lives would now be suspended in a state of utter chaos. Life expectancy would be miserably low; children would be without a future. Staying alive would be a challenge, if staying alive even mattered anymore. (Professor Thane Rosenbaum, WSJ, July 21, 2014, emphasis added)

    The above odious narrative goes beyond “authoritative” lies and fabrications. While the deaths of civilians are casually acknowledged, “their right to live” is taken away from them, because in the words of the illustrious associate professor at NYU, “adult civilians” are “terrorists” supportive of Hamas and their children are “cannon fodder.” So much for university scholarship and for “civilian academics” who support US-NATO-Israeli “humanitarian wars.”




  147. Israel’s latest self-inflicted wound
    By Hussein Ibish

    “Israel’s latest offensive in Gaza has brought with it two things that are disturbingly familiar: first, huge numbers of civilian casualties; second, endless protestations by Israel that it is not only trying to do everything it can to reduce those casualties, but that it has “the most moral army in the world,” no less. The horrors being meted out on the innocent people of Gaza are bad enough, but they are compounded by Israel’s endless and fatuous claims of unique morality, which are entirely inconsistent with the known facts.

    At least 600 Palestinians have been killed in the violence so far. The UN has estimated that over 70% of them are civilians. Even if the UN is overestimating, that still means an enormous percentage of those killed by Israeli fire are civilians. I haven’t seen any estimate in which the number of child victims was less than 100. The death tolls on Sunday and Monday both reached over 100 Palestinian dead, a shocking figure in any conflict.

    Israel cites two reasons for these deaths. Either they are the consequence of “regrettable mistakes,” which Israel has acknowledged on a small handful of occasions during this campaign, or they are the result of Hamas using the Palestinian population as “human shields.” As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cynically and cruelly put it, Palestinians, including Hamas, seek “telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    So for more than 60 years the Devil huffed and puffed ’till he blew his disguise clean off and stands revealed as Israel.~ww

  148. Government agents ‘directly involved’ in most high-profile US terror plots
    21 Jul 2014

    Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the “direct involvement” of government agents or informants, a new report says.

    Some of the controversial “sting” operations “were proposed or led by informants”, bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

    The lengthy report, released on Monday by Human Rights Watch, raises questions about the US criminal justice system’s ability to respect civil rights and due process in post-9/11 terrorism cases. It portrays a system that features not just the sting operations but secret evidence, anonymous juries, extensive pretrial detentions and convictions significantly removed from actual plots.

    “In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act,” the report alleges.

    Out of the 494 cases related to terrorism the US has tried since 9/11, the plurality of convictions – 18% overall – are not for thwarted plots but for “material support” charges, a broad category expanded further by the 2001 Patriot Act that permits prosecutors to pursue charges with tenuous connections to a terrorist act or group.



  149. To Lialeo,

    “I am glad to see my “umbrage” did not go unnoticed, but I find your replies frustratingly evasive from A all the way to Z.

    I will leave the mental and spiritual gymnastics to those who can actually afford it… And to people who feel safely remote from any danger to their and their family’s survival… I feel war is upon us and I brought you a concern to ask you a very real question about something I thought you were passionate about… “~Lilaleo – July 24, 2014 at 10:22 am

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    If my sincere honesty in admitting that I do not have the answers that will lead to Peace on Earth is to be interpreted as “evasive”, I don’t know what further I can say to our friend Lilaleo that would not be further frustration for him {it is ‘him’ I presume?}.

    I hardly feel “safely remote from any danger to their and their family’s survival,” but in fact live on the very edge of financial rupture myself. I find myself in the belly of the beast, trapped in the “Amerikan Heartland” amongst legions of TVZombies. What panacea is it that Lilaleo thinks I might have to offer?

    It is my assessment of the history and even the prehistory of the human race, that we are as we are. Nothing has changed but our advanced technology. What can I offer to such a people? A people the majority of which DO NOT FUCKING CARE. “Wisdom” is not a popular brand of candy for the Lollipop People.

    What can I offer as solace to people like Lilaleo, who do care?

    I only have the understandings that I have, I cannot see the future, I have no crystal ball, I have no magic wand. And if I should begin performing miracles…?
    Where has this ever led to but the cross?

    If you are looking for the Second Coming Lilaleo, find some charismatic to pour your faith into, and pray with all your heart. I am not the one.


    • So, Lilaleo and I seem to agree on the basic assessment of the world situation:

      ‘The fucking fucker’s fucked’.

      Perhaps Lilaleo has some answer/solutions for this?

      I am waiting with baited breath to read it dear Lilaleo.

    • C’mon, Willy… We both know that, at your age (and mine) a second coming is mostly a fantasy… Unless, of course, you are a student of the same performance enhancing eastern teachings that Sting practices… ;-}]

      Will have to save my “serious” reply for after hours, when I get some me time to sit down quietly…

      But just to allow you to resume your regular breathing, I’ll say this much:

      I approached you neither thinking that you may be the One, nor to ask for or offer a solution, nor to point out an obvious “world is fucked up” observation. I have wasted just as much time on those as the next guy over the years. Hence my continued effort to keep these exchanges on just the 9/11 blogosphere and research.

      Will catch you again later under the moonlight.

      • I happen to keep some Himalayan Wolfbane handy at all times, so I suppose I can deal with lycanthropy in the moonlit hours… and serious hours too! What promise this holds, as I myself am more “awake” after the midnight chime.

        As far as my thinking on 9/11, I suppose it is similar to yours. I think the case is cracked. That is solved by open source research. I think it can be said to be one of a cycle of false flag events that fit the MO of the elite hegemon squatting verily upon the head of the peoples of this world. It does retain the quality of “prime example” and proximate point for a paradigm shift put in play through it. Thus it is of critical import to understand.

        And it is in those pesky little details, that some claim do not matter to the big picture, that actually do matter very much. And the aspect of ‘divisions’ drawn by argument over these details… does consensus trump the full truth? These are heady issues that have gone ’round and ’round in many conversations throughout the post event years.

        And alas:
        As far as the second coming…or the third, forth, fifth…who knows how many??? I might tell you the X-rated tale of the sweet little “cowgirl” I met one Halloween party night…
        But again, I probably won’t, for to tell it I would have to be explicit to get across what this girl’s technique was… Lol

      • Hi Willy,

        Please accept my apologies for not having kept our moonlight render-vous. I got in to a spat that day at American Everyman with some Jesus people who annoyed the crap out of me, then I got annoyed with myself for not having shown more restraint and for engaging in such a thing, and even more annoyed with myself that I did it while I was trying to preach the opposite on your pages, then I got super annoyed with Scott who seem to have convinced himself that I was trying to drive away people who agreed with him (or something to that effect) and that I am an apologist for Israel…. There was no amount of moonlight that could have made all that annoyance go away and allow me to post a levelheaded comment to continue our conversation. And, the next day, we started the last leg of a road trip I was on with my two kids, etc. And here we are…

        That’s my story… Will try to pick it up where we left it one of these days.



      • Oops… This is annoying… WordPress has recently started pcking up my own (inactive) wordpress account unless I manually log in every time.. Which I forgot to do…

        Multiple identities, which I do not have, tend to be perceived as suspicious in these circles… If it is not too big of a hassle, I’d love it if you deleted my most recent post, so I can re-post it as my “true self”, so to speak.

    Synchronicity and the Ever Present Singularity
    ConsciousnessEmpowermentInspirationby Elle – Jul 24, 201410 70

    by Zen Gardner

    It’s amazing, it’s wonderful, and it’s so significant! I continue to experience and observe the most exponential increase in synchronistic events and communication I have ever witnessed and it continues to unfold daily. Writers, posters and internet information sharers are networking at such a consciously connected level it’s just fantastic, and everything ties into it.

    I know for myself, I no sooner write or read or post something on a subject but bam, there’s related stories, videos, articles or personal comments coming into my own and the general information field like a flood. And it continues to increase.

    Through thick and thin, good news and bad, our connectivity continues to quicken. That’s something to be encouraged about.

    Of Course It Does
    That’s how it works. Especially now as the awakening soars into critical mass as if approaching an event horizon. There’s a lot of encouragement to be derived for all of us here. We know we can’t trust the twisted junk media. We have our hearts to guide us, and favorite information sources we each have found and turn to. But the key to all of this is the original Source and getting the best connection possible.

    It takes time and dedication to try to keep attuned and there are a lot of wonderful tips and much good advice on this subject. As you get deeper into it you’ll find you have to give up other areas of your life that are holding you back. Do it. Time in this current state could run out quickly if we don’t do our utmost to tune into and help amplify and thus spread this marvelous awakening we are experiencing.

    There’s no limitations to the Creative Source, and there’s no blockage to our accessing it except what we individually allow. It’s sometimes big things in our lives, sometimes small, but it’s all built on moment by moment decisions. Do we go here, or do we go here? Do we waste time, or are we not taking enough breaks and relax time? Are we relaxed and loving and having fun or is it all work and no play making for very dull boys and girls? Lots of questions we all deal with, but remember, it’s all made up of decisions, big and small, and one builds upon another.

    Thankfully with this great creative collective Consciousness the conscious awakening just keeps on and we can get back “on track” any time we want. The thrill is living in that spiritual current as much as possible and having a blast as well as a helpful impact at the same time.

    We are each others’ amplifiers and the music is amping up! Dance on!


    Singularity Now…and Always
    They talk about this coming “singularity” when all information reaches a point where it is multiplying at an infinite rate and blip, everything’s over as we know it and perhaps we’re translated into another state of existence. John von Newmann first expounded this idea, defining it as the “ever accelerating progress of technology and changes in the mode of human life, which gives the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue.”

    Pretty profound idea. Trouble is, this concept has since been cleverly hijacked into the transhumanist agenda. Instead of space and time ceasing to exist as in the classic black hole or event horizon example, it generally now means the time when technological advancements have so accelerated that an artificial super intelligence is formed that will surpass human intelligence, after which the whole game is up for grabs and beyond our human control or comprehension. Our bodies, minds and civilization would be completely and irreversibly transformed.

    Clever bastards. Predictive programming at its best. That’s what they’re shooting for in all of this. But again, it’s a hijacking of the true concept.

    Whichever, I’ve got news for you. The real singularity is already here. It has always existed. Call it eternal consciousness, the creative Source, whatever, it’s always everywhere and always accessible and way beyond anyone’s comprehension.

    And it’s definitely not artificial or anti-human!

    Three cyberheads. Artificial intelligence. After Dia Sobin.

    Beware the Transhuman Imitation
    We’re in a lower level matrix in this existence as humans on planet earth. What we have about us has already been manipulated to a large degree into an imitation of the original creation, and most of humanity is unfortunately buying into this illusory containment system. Any sort of singularity on this level therefore is really insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and something to be very suspect of.

    In fact, it’s just perfecting the hijack as they try to remove our human-ness altogether. The social engineering and designed collapse we’re experiencing will seem like child’s play compared to what they’re intending. It is, however, what’s leading up to their latter plans.

    They want us to think of this bastardized “singularity” concept in an innocuous way, like they’re punching a hole in the illusion, similar to that character finding the door in the Truman Show. Nice analogy, but they’re not on our side. They want complete dominion over us and to literally erase our souls and transform us into automatons.

    In the real world they’re trying to hide from us time already doesn’t exist. It’s just a tool here to decode what is already happening all at once. So to get to the point of singularity via accumulated knowledge is not just presumptuous propaganda; it’s another revelation of the method. These big tech boys and science sell-outs are controlled by the Controllers so it’s a load of crap. Just look at the idiots at CERN and what they’re doing to punch a hole in creation without regard for the unknown consequences.

    Insane. But enough about these soulless charlatans. All they can do is destroy and imitate for control and wishful usurping dominion. Destined to fail.

    Back to beautiful synchronicity.

    Get On Board
    It’s wonderful how the information and revelations of Truth are exploding. Hey, surf’s up, grab your board and get in! How? Follow your heart, follow the leads. Keep at it. If it’s on line you’ll notice things that catch your attention. Take time to look at them. Maybe they lead to new websites you’ve never seen, or a concept you’ve never heard of. Follow along. We have the tools at our fingertips.

    If it’s in your personal life, step out!

    Sure there are decoys and wrong turns, but they all work in your favor. As long as you keep going. Religions are a good example of people who thought they found something and stopped. Right there. Camped down and became slaves to an ideology. There are lots of things that do that. Stay away from petrified propaganda. It starts off seemingly succulent but soon turns swampy. After a bit it’ll be like trying to swim in the La Brea tar pits.

    Then mummification sets in. Instead behold the world of the unconscious. Stay sharp and don’t get stuck in your tracks.

    Tuning In Through Networking
    One of your best tools to get into the stream of synchronicity is networking. Sharing. As we each pump into each other Truth, compassion and real knowledge and understanding as best we can, we contribute to this mass awakening and empowerment. It’s a fabulous dynamic and a thrill to be part of. It’s actually simply living a conscious life and it will follow naturally, but understanding the mechanics can really help keep our buns in gear and positively productive during this ridiculous shitstorm smacking humanity right now.

    As we give, we get. Universe is amazing in this dynamic. We don’t give to get, it just happens, but it’s good to know it does because we always want to keep learning and growing and gaining in spiritual capabilities. It’s also very important to know that as you share and live a conscious life, Universe will take care of you. I know I’m preaching to much of the choir here as so many of you know this and are driven like I am; sharing emails, passing on information to researchers you know, and other disseminators of information. Sharing finds with those who specialize in a certain field can have a tremendous effect. If you find something that strikes you as important in a certain field, say chemtrails or EMF hazards for example, never assume that a seeming “specialist” must know this already.

    You could be the prompter through which Universe is working.

    Synchronicity is always happening. As Carl Jung said, “Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.”


    We live in very exciting times. We’ve been given the tools for this time. We’ve always had them. Humanity has them built in but our Overlords have done everything they can to hide them from us and deny their existence. It’s time we tapped in and let ‘em have it full throttle. As we do and others join in the signal amplifies and the awakening accelerates.

    Keep moving, keep loving, keep learning, keep transcending – and take the nudges seriously.

    Join the buzz…this synchronicity rush is a blast!

    Love always, Zen

    Factual information alone isn’t sufficient to guide you through life’s labyrinthine tests. You need and deserve regular deliveries of uncanny revelation. One of your inalienable rights as a human being should therefore be to receive a mysteriously useful omen every day of your life.

  157. 9/11 Commission authors outline never ending war on terror
    Kurt Nimmo
    Prison Planet.com – July 25, 2014
    Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton have released a ten year anniversary follow-up to the 9/11 Commission Report, “Today’s Rising Terrorist Threat and the Danger to the United States: Reflections on the Tenth Anniversary of the 9/11 Commission Report.”
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    This is a good wrap-up by Nimmo of the actual situation as counter to the Kean/Hamilton synthetic PR hokum…

    The “War on Terrorism” is phony chinky chunky caca plunky . . . plop-plop.



    • “What has been thus established is that Ukraine, as well as the US, the EU, NATO, and other Western countries, have been systematically and grossly lying about evidence pertaining to the tragedy of MH17, thus willfully – and bluntly, abusing the tragedy and the demise of the victims and the suffering of their families for perverse political goals related to NATO expansionism and anti-Russian hysteria, and ‘Russophobia’, in order to support an openly fascist regime in Kiev, whose objective is the deliberate destruction of civilians and civilian infrastructure in east Ukraine.”
      “The smearing campaign has also been used to demonize and criminalize anti-fascism and its resistance to a fascist dictatorship in Kiev, enrolled by Ukraine’s criminal oligarchs….
      Once again, we’ve witnessed world’s most powerful, highly coordinated and synchronized propaganda machine. Once it’s set in motion, most western consumers are helpless to fend off it’s relentless repeating and universal coverage across hundreds of media outlets owned in most part by 5 US, and 2 British corporations.”

  158. Washington Is Escalating the Orchestrated Ukrainian “Crisis” to War

    By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts — Global Research, July 25, 2014


    “Despite the conclusion by US intelligence that there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the destruction of the Malaysian airliner and all lives onboard, Washington is escalating the crisis and shepherding the World toward war.

    Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes.” The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.

    Note that prior to any evidence of any Russian aggression, there are already 22 senators lined up in behalf of preventing further Russian aggression.

    Accompanying this preparatory propaganda move to create a framework for war, hot or cold with Russia, NATO commander General Philip Breedlove announced his plan for a deployment of massive military means in Eastern Europe that would permit lightening responses against Russia in order to protect Europe from Russian aggression.

    There we have it again: Russian Aggression. Repeat it enough and it becomes real.”

    • “The existence of “Russian aggression” is assumed, not demonstrated. Neither Breedlove nor the senators make any reference to Russian war plans for an attack on Europe or any other countries. There are no references to Russian position papers and documents setting forth a Russian expansionist ideology or a belief declared by Moscow that Russians are “exceptional, indispensable people” with the right to exercise hegemony over the world. No evidence is presented that Russia has infiltrated the communication systems of the entire world for spy purposes. There is no evidence that Putin has Obama’s or Obama’s daughters’ private cell phone conversations or that Russia downloads US corporate secrets for the benefit of Russian businesses.

      Nevertheless, the NATO commander and US senators see an urgent need to create blitzkrieg capability for NATO on Russia’s borders.”~Roberts

  159. Dinosaur Soft-tissue Explained

    Nov 26, 2013 · A T. rex found with soft tissue preserved in her bones … Controversial T. Rex Soft Tissue Find Finally Explained. … was how soft, pliable tissue could ..

    Mary Schweitzer, a molecular paleontologist at North Carolina State University, explains how proteins — and possibly even DNA — can survive millennia.

    Iron is an element present in abundance in the body, particularly in the blood, where it is part of the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. Iron is also highly reactive with other molecules, so the body keeps it locked up tight, bound to molecules that prevent it from wreaking havoc on the tissues.

    After death, though, iron is let free from its cage. It forms minuscule iron nanoparticles and also generates free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules thought to be involved in aging.

    “The free radicals cause proteins and cell membranes to tie in knots,” Schweitzer said. “They basically act like formaldehyde.”

    Formaldehyde, of course, preserves tissue. It works by linking up, or cross-linking, the amino acids that make up proteins, which makes those proteins more resistant to decay.Schweitzer and her colleagues found that dinosaur soft tissue is closely associated with iron nanoparticles in both the T. rex and another soft-tissue specimen from Brachylophosaurus canadensis, a type of duck-billed dinosaur. They then tested the iron-as-preservative idea using modern ostrich blood vessels. They soaked one group of blood vessels in iron-rich liquid made of red blood cells and another group in water. The blood vessels left in water turned into a disgusting mess within days. The blood vessels soaked in red blood cells remain recognizable after sitting at room temperature for two years.

    25 Recent Events Causing WW3 They Want You To Forget

    Anthony Freda Art
    Eric Blair
    Activist Post

    Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.

    I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”.

    In fact, they want in on the action. The Pentagon began wargaming this week with the regime in Ukraine on how best to kill pesky citizens in Eastern Ukraine who oppose the U.S. Vice President’s son stealing and fracking shale gas on their land.

    People who defend their land and families are called “terrorists” when imperial powers want their resources. In turn, Western rulers call violent coups “duly elected” if they pledge allegiance to the IMF.

    This situation is creating friction among the world’s superpowers not seen since the Cold War. Obama recently expressed concern that “The old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order.” Later in the speech he blamed uncooperative nations (read Russia) for standing in the way of the New World Order.

    It seems if Russia doesn’t get on board with the Western-led world order, these powers are destined to clash in a West vs. East showdown over international banking and the control of gas supplies.

    Here are 25 recent events, or data points, that our rulers hope we forget when they blame the collapse of the old world order on Russia:
    US spent $5 billion to destabilize Ukraine, not to mention the millions NGOs spent on “opposition groups”. The State Department was even caught playing kingmaker in Ukraine in secret recordings during the takeover.
    November 21st, 2013 – Ukraine’s President abandons an agreement on closer trade ties with EU, instead seeking closer cooperation with Russia. Violent pro-EU protests begin to organize.
    December 17th, 2013 – Putin offers to buy $15bn of Ukrainian debt and discount the price of Russian gas by about a third.
    February 2014 – Violence of coup peaks on the 20th. On 22nd protesters took control of Kiev and Parliament votes to remove president from power.
    February 23rd – New interim government named, replaces head of Ukraine central bank.
    March 6th – Obama signs national emergency executive order to punish Ukrainians that “undermine democratic processes and institutions” of the coup government in Ukraine. You can’t make this stuff up.
    March 16th – Crimea holds voter referendum to split from coup government in Kiev and ally with Russia, passes by over 95%.
    March 20th – Obama announces more unilateral sanctions on Russia.
    March 24th – Leaked tape where former prime minister of Ukraine and darling of the West, Yulia Tymoshenko, calls for wiping out all Russians with nuclear weapons.
    April 29th – Obama unilaterally expands sanctions on Russia.
    April 30th – Newly installed regime in Kiev receives $17 billion from the IMF for “economic reforms”. (December deal from Russia with better terms for Ukrainian people discarded.)
    May 3rd – Obama calls Kiev’s coup government “duly elected”.
    May 11th – Eastern Ukraine votes for independence from Kiev and for self-rule. Kiev mobilizes military to punish citizens for disloyalty.
    May 15th – US Vice President’s son Hunter Biden named to the board of Ukraine gas company.
    May 21st – Russia and China sign historic $400 billion “Holy Grail” gas deal not using petrodollars.
    May 27th – Second day in office, new Ukraine president launches military “anti-terrorist operation” against eastern Ukrainians.
    June 3rd – NATO pledges military support for Ukraine to battle dissidents.
    June 16th – Ukraine refuses to pay its gas bill to Moscow’s Gazprom, Russia cuts off gas.
    June 26th – Gazprom agrees to drop the dollar to settle contracts with China.
    June 27th – The EU signs an association agreement with Ukraine, along with Georgia and Moldova
    July 15th – BRICS nations fund international development bank to compete with the IMF, World Bank, and the dollar itself.
    July 17th – Commercial airliner MH17 shot out of the sky over eastern Ukraine. Appears to be classic false flag event after the West immediately blamed Russia citing sketchy YouTube videos.
    July 2014 – US announces yet more sanctions on Russia. EU and Canada both join in calls for more sanctions for Russia.
    July 2014 – Joe Biden’s son’s company prepares to drill shale gas in east Ukraine.
    July 2014 – Pentagon creates military plan to clear path for gas drilling in rebel-held areas of Ukraine.

    Beyond Propaganda: Discourse of War and Doublethink. “When the Lie Becomes the Truth”
    By Jean-Claude Paye and Tülay Umay – Global Research, July 25, 2014

    Since the attacks of September 11, we are witnessing a transformation of the way the media report the news. They lock us in the unreal. They base truth not on the coherence of a presentation, but on its shocking character. Thus, the observer remains petrified and cannot establish a relation to reality.

    The media are lying to us, but at the same time, they show us that they are lying. It is no longer a matter of changing our perception of facts in order to get our support, but to lock us in the spectacle of the omnipotence of power. Showing the annihilation of reason is based on images that serve to replace facts. Information no longer focuses on the ability to perceive and represent a thing, but the need to experience it, or rather to experience oneself through it.

    From Bin Laden to Merah, through the “tyrant” Bashar al-Assad, media discourse has become the permanent production of fetishes, ordering surrender to what is “given to see.” The injunction does not aim, as propaganda, to convince. It simply directs the subject to give flesh to the image of the “war of civilizations”. The discursive device of “War of Good against Evil,” updating the Orwellian doublethink process must become a new reality that de-structures our entire existence, of everyday life in global political relations.

    Such an approch has become ubiquitous, especially regarding the war in Syria. It consists of cancelling a statement at the same time as it is pronounced, while maintaining what has been previously given to see and hear. The individual must have the ability to accept opposing elements, without raising the existing contradiction. Language is thus reduced to communication and cannot fulfill its function of representation. The deconstruction of the faculty to symbolize prevents any protection vis-à-vis the real to which we are in submission.



    • “While language sets us in a collective space, images are intended for single individuals. They prevent any social relation, any symbolization. They are the paradigm of a monadic society. Thus, these images tell less about the conflict itself than about the state of our society and the scheduled future: permanent war.”~Jean-Claude Paye, Tülay Umay

    You Can’t Taper a Ponzi Scheme: Time to Reboot
    Ellen Brown: Despite the Dodd-Frank Act, the derivatives pyramid has continued to explode to a notional value now estimated to be as high as $2 quadrillion.

    You Can’t Taper a Ponzi Scheme: Time to Reboot
    Monday, 28 July 2014 09:53
    By Ellen Brown, The Web of Debt Blog | News Analysis

    One thing to be said for the women now heading the Federal Reserve and the IMF: compared to some of their predecessors, they are refreshingly honest. The Wall Street Journal reported on July 2nd:
    Two of the world’s most powerful women of finance sat down for a lengthy discussion Wednesday on the future of monetary policy in a post-crisis world: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. Before a veritable who’s-who in international economics packing the IMF’s largest conference hall, the two covered all the hottest topics in debate among the world’s central bankers, financiers and economists.
    Among those hot topics was the runaway shadow banking system, defined by Investopedia as “The financial intermediaries involved in facilitating the creation of credit across the global financial system, but whose members are not subject to regulatory oversight. The shadow banking system also refers to unregulated activities by regulated institutions.” Examples given include hedge funds, derivatives and credit default swaps.
    Conventional banks also engage in “shadow banking.” One way is by using their cash cushion as collateral in the repo market, where they can borrow to invest in the stock market and other speculative ventures. As explained by Bill Frezza in a January 2013 Huffington Post article titled “Too-Big-To-Fail Banks Gamble With Bernanke Bucks”:
    If you think [the cash cushion from excess deposits] makes the banks less vulnerable to shock, think again. Much of this balance sheet cash has been hypothecated in the repo market, laundered through the off-the-books shadow banking system. This allows the proprietary trading desks at these “banks” to use that cash as collateral to take out loans to gamble with. In a process called hyper-hypothecation this pledged collateral gets pyramided, creating a ticking time bomb ready to go kablooey when the next panic comes around.
    Addressing the ticking time bomb of the shadow banking system, here is what two of the world’s most powerful women had to say:
    MS. LAGARDE: . . . You’ve beautifully demonstrated the efforts that have been undertaken . . . in terms of the universe that you have under your jurisdiction. But this universe . . . has generated the creation of parallel universes. And . . . with the toolbox with all the attributes that you have — what can you do about the shadow banking at large? . . .
    MS. YELLEN: So I think you’re pointing to something that is an enormous challenge. And we simply have to expect that when we draw regulatory boundaries and supervise intensely within them, that there is the prospect that activities will move outside those boundaries and we won’t be able to detect them. And if we can, we won’t be — we won’t have adequate regulatory tools. And that is going to be a huge challenge to which I don’t have a great answer.
    Limited to her tools, there probably is no great answer. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men could not rein in the growth of the shadow banking system, despite the 828-page Dodd-Frank Act. Instead, the derivatives pyramid has continued to explode under its watch, to a notional value now estimated to be as high as $2 quadrillion.
    At one time, manipulating interest rates was the Fed’s stock in trade for managing the money supply; but that tool too has lost its cutting edge. Rates are now at zero, as low as they can go – unless they go negative, meaning the bank charges the depositor interest rather than the reverse. That desperate idea is actually being discussed. Meanwhile, rates are unlikely to be raised any time soon. On July 23rd, Bloomberg reported that the Fed could keep rates at zero through 2015.
    One reason rates are unlikely to be raised is that they would make the interest tab on the burgeoning federal debt something taxpayers could not support. According to the Treasury’s website, taxpayers pay about $400 billion a year in interest on the federal debt, just as they did in 2006 — although the debt has nearly doubled, from $9 trillion to over $16 trillion. The total interest is kept low by extremely low interest rates.
    Worse, raising interest rates could implode the monster derivatives scheme. Michael Snyder observes that the biggest banks have written over $400 trillion in interest rate derivatives contracts, betting that interest rates will not shoot up. If they do, it will be the equivalent of an insurance company writing trillions of dollars in life insurance contracts and having all the insureds die at once. The banks would quickly become insolvent. And it will be our deposits that get confiscated to recapitalize them, under the new “bail in” scheme approved by Janet Yellen as one of the Fed’s more promising tools (called “resolution planning” in Fed-speak).
    As Max Keiser observes, “You can’t taper a Ponzi scheme.” You can only turn off the tap and let it collapse, or watch the parasite consume its food source and perish of its own accord.
    Collapse or Metamorphosis?
    The question being hotly debated in the blogosphere is, “What then?” Will economies collapse globally? Will life as we know it be a thing of the past?
    Not likely, argues John Michael Greer in a March 2014 article called “American Delusionalism, or Why History Matters.” If history is any indication, governments will simply, once again, change the rules.
    In fact, the rules of money and banking have changed every 20 or 30 years for the past three centuries, in an ongoing trial-and-error experiment in evolving a financial system, and an ongoing battle over whose interests it will serve. To present that timeline in full will take another article, but in a nutshell we have gone from precious metal coins, to government-issued paper scrip, to privately-issued banknotes, to checkbook money, to gold-backed Federal Reserve Notes, to unbacked Federal Reserve Notes, to the “near money” created by the shadow banking system. Money has evolved from being “stored” in the form of a physical commodity, to paper representations of value, to computer bits storing information about credits and debits.
    The rules have been changed before and can be changed again. Depressions, credit crises and financial collapse are not acts of God but are induced by mechanical flaws or corruption in the financial system. Credit may stop flowing, but the workers, materials and markets are still there. The system just needs a reboot.
    Hopefully the next program that gets run will last more than 20 or 30 years. Ideally, we might mimic the ancient Mesopotamians, the oldest and most long-lasting civilization in history, and devise an economic system that lasts for millennia. How they did it, along with some other promising models, will be the subject of another article. For more on this, see The Public Bank Solution.
    About Those Derivatives
    How to kill the derivatives cancer without killing the patient? Without presuming to have more insight into that question than the head of the Fed or the IMF, I will just list some promising suggestions from a variety of experts in the field (explored in more depth in my earlier article here):
    Eliminate the superpriority granted to derivatives in the 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Act, the highly favorable protective legislation that has allowed the derivatives bubble to mushroom.
    Restore the Glass-Steagall Act separating depository banking from investment banking.
    Break up the giant derivatives banks.
    Alternatively, nationalize the too-big-to-fail banks.
    Make derivatives illegal and unwind them by netting them out, declaring them null and void.
    Impose a financial transactions tax on Wall Street trading.
    To protect the deposits of citizens and local governments, establish postal savings banks and state-owned banks on the model of the Bank of North Dakota, the only state to completely escape the 2008 banking crisis.
    These alternatives are all viable possibilities. Our financial leaders, in conjunction with our political leaders, have continually re-created the web of money and credit that knits our economy together. But they have often taken only their own interests and those of the wealthiest citizens into account, not those of the general public. It is up to us to educate ourselves about money and banking, and to demand a system that is accountable to the people and serves our long-term interests.

  170. The Case Against B.F. Skinner
    By Noam Chomsky
    The New York Review of Books, December 30, 1971

    “The dogmatic element in Skinner’s thinking is further revealed when he states that “the task of a scientific analysis is to explain how the behavior of a person as a physical system is related to the conditions under which the human species evolved and the conditions under which the individual lives” (p. 14). Surely the task of a scientific analysis is to discover the facts and explain them. Suppose that in fact the human brain operates by physical principles (perhaps now unknown) that provide for free choice, appropriate to situations but only marginally affected by environmental contingencies. The task of scientific analysis is not — as Skinner believes — to demonstrate that the conditions to which he restricts his attention fully determine human behavior, but rather to discover whether in fact they do (or whether they are at all significant), a very different matter. If they do not, as seems plausible, the “task of a scientific analysis” will be to clarify the issues and discover an intelligible explanatory theory that will deal with the actual facts. Surely no scientist would follow Skinner in insisting on the a priori necessity that scientific investigation will lead to a particular conclusion, specified in advance.”~Noam Chomsky
    . . . . . .
    “We cannot specify, a priori, what postulates and hypotheses are legitimate. Skinner’s a priorism in this regard is no more legitimate than the claim that classical physics is not “science” because it appeals to the “occult force of gravity.” If a concept or principle finds its place in an explanatory theory, it cannot be excluded on methodological grounds, as Skinner continually insists. In general, Skinner’s conception of science is very odd. Not only do his a priori methodological assumptions rule out all but the most trivial scientific theories; he is, furthermore, given to strange pronouncements such as the assertion that “the laws of science are descriptions of contingencies of reinforcement” (p. 189) — which I happily leave to others to decode.”~Ibid
    . . . . .. .
    “It is important to bear in mind that Skinner’s strictures do not define the practice of behavioral science. In fact, those who call themselves “behavioral scientists” or even “behaviorists” vary widely in the kinds of theoretical constructions that they are willing to admit. W. V. O. Quine, who on other occasions has attempted to work within Skinner’s framework, goes so far as to define “behaviorism” simply as the insistence that conjectures and conclusions must eventually be verified by observations.3 As he points out, any reasonable person is a “behaviorist” in this sense. Quine’s proposal signifies the demise of behaviorism as a substantive point of view, which is just as well. Whatever function “behaviorism” may have served in the past, it has become nothing more than a set of arbitrary restrictions on “legitimate” theory construction, and there is no reason why someone who investigates man and society should accept the kind of intellectual shackles that physical scientists would surely not tolerate and that condemn any intellectual pursuit to insignificance.”~Ibid

    “The tendencies in our society that lead toward submission to authoritarian rule may prepare individuals for a doctrine that can be interpreted as justifying it.”~Ibid



  171. In my experience the longer we ponder the deep structure of Orwellian despotism, the more clearly we grasp that it is der spinner, the spiders themselves; the propagandists who are most completely the ‘true believers’. They have become so submerged in their own PR that it is as if sacred. That is, they are the most completely delusional of all.

    Alas reality will destroy those who cannot grasp it. The final danger is that they may take the whole world down with themselves.

  172. I suggest rather than my offering a PDF of my ‘HR1 Decoder Ring’, that Lilaleo attempt to find and read the INTRODUCTION to the original edition 1852 of Roget’s Thesaurus.

    It begins with these pregnant words:

    “The present Work is intended to supply, with respect to the English language, a desideratum hitherto unsupplied in any language; namely, a collection of the words it contains and of the idiomatic combinations peculiar to it, arranged not in alphabetical order as they are in a dictionary, but according to the ideas which they express.”~Peter Mark Roget

    It is a fascinating lesson in the critical use of language for thinking and conveying ideas.

  173. Surface to air missile attack ruled out as calibre of cockpit bullet holes puts Ukraine pilots in the frame for MH17 murders
    This is what a German pilot-cum-air technology expert Peter Haisenko has just published on the subject of the MH17 disaster.

    Armour-Piercing Ammunition. Russia has published radar data that a
    Ukranian SU 25 was close to MH 017. this corresponds with Spanish air
    traffic control that two Ukranian fighter aircraft were in direct
    contact with MH 017. Examine the weaponry of the SU 25: it is fitted
    out with a 30mm cannon Type GSch-302 /AO-17A, with 250 rounds of
    splintering exploding bullets on a belt – shrapnel rounds. The cockpit
    of MH 017 was hit from TWO sides, as there are entry and exit holes on
    the same side….’




  174. U.S. Holds the World Record of Killings of Innocent Civilians

    By Prof. John McMurtry and Kourosh Ziabari – Global Research, July 29, 2014
    Url of this article:

    A world-renowned Canadian philosopher argues that the United States holds the world record of illegal killings of unarmed civilians and extrajudicial detention and torturing of prisoners who are detained without trial.

    Prof. John McMurtry says that the U.S. government is a gigantic mass-murdering machine which earns profit through waging wars, and is never held accountable over its unspeakable war crimes and crimes against humanity. He also believes that the U.S. has become a police state, which treats its citizens in the most derogatory manner.

    “I have travelled alone with only backpack possession through the world, and have found no state in which police forces are more habituated to violent bullying, more likely to draw a gun, more discriminatory against the dispossessed, and more arbitrarily vicious in normal behavior,” said McMurtry. “The US now leads the globe in an underlying civil war of the rich against the poor.”

    “The US can … detain, kidnap and imprison without trial or indictment any US citizen or other citizen anywhere by designating them enemies to the US,” Prof. John McMurtry noted in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.

    According to the Canadian intellectual, the United States statesmen have long supported dictatorial and tyrannical regimes and even funded and armed the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler in the period between 1939 and 1945.

    John McMurtry is a Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Guelph, Canada. In 2001, Prof. McMurtry was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada for his outstanding contributions to the study of humanities and social sciences. His latest major works are his 15-year study, “The Cancer Stage of Capitalism: From Crisis to Cure” and three monumental volumes commissioned by UNESCO for its Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems entitled “Philosophy and World Problems.” McMurtry’s articles and writings regularly appear on different newspapers and online magazines across the world.

    • “In the US’s so-called War on Terror, by far the greatest and most systematic terrorization of civilians is in fact perpetrated by the US state itself. Unarmed citizens are murdered across the world as ‘collateral damage’, ‘illegal enemy combatants’ or other license of impunity. The US state conceives itself as above international law along with ally Israel, but this reality is taboo to report and so too all the killing and terrorization of civilians. One can truly say that “the historical record demonstrates the US is provably guilty of continual lawless mass murder of civilians across the world”, but the truth is unthinkable within the ruling ideological regime. Consider for example, the US-led deadly civil wars and coup d’etats in Venezuela and Ukraine as well as Libya and Syria. They mass terrorize and destroy societies into defenseless dependency so that their resources, lands and markets are “free” for transnational corporate exploitation. Yet the meaning is un-decoded. Ignorance is built into the syntax of acceptable thought.” ~Prof. John McMurtry

    Brontosaurus – Paleontology Error

    The brontosaurus is actually an apatosaurus with the head of a camarasaurus.
    The name Brontosaurus continued to be featured on museum labels. But although scientists have identified error since 1903, the name was not formally removed from the records of paleontology until 1974.

  177. To grasp who the Palestinian people are, one must know something of the Romans of the Biblical period. The most important aspect of this knowledge is that the Romans did not banish their enemies, they crucified them. Understanding this leads to the conclusion that when the Romans had had enough of the rebellions by the Israelite tribes of the so called “Lavant”, they set about destroying the temples and capturing and crucifying as many of the leadership as was possible. This included the Rabbinate of the temples, who naturally fled or were captured and killed.

    But the people as a whole were not ‘dispersed’, they were attached to the land, and thus remaining had to assume allegiance to Caesar.

    As time marched on and the Roman Empire fell, other political forces applied to the area known as Palestine. At one point in time the peoples there were conquered by Islam, and it was politically necessary to convert to go along to get along; which is a constant human attribute.

    According to such logic the Palestinian peoples are for the most part descendants of the ancient Judeans. Whereas the modern Israelis are for the most part Ashkenazim with a heritage from the Caucuses, who converted to Judaism in the 11th century, and spread throughout Eastern Europe for the most part.

    This short outline leads to the major conundrum of modern so-called “Israel”, in that the people who call themselves “Jews”, have no valid heritage to claim the land of Palestine.

    For some insight into this, I refer the reader to, Shlomo Sand and his book The Invention of the Jewish People.


  178. Thanks to the Mossad, Israel’s “Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks”, the Hamas was allowed to reinforce its presence in the occupied territories. Meanwhile, Arafat’s Fatah Movement for National Liberation as well as the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression and intimidation

    Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO)”.

      • It’s a criminality beyond comprehension, the nerve of these people to espouse themselves as being victims of the alleged holocaust when they’ve created a Warsaw ghetto right on their doorstep. These people are trapped while the bastards rain ordinance on them. We’re witnessing a genocide while the dumb fucks around us are oblivious to it.

  179. “The award-winning Israeli historian and scholar on Fascism, Zeev Sternhell, has said that calling for the Palestinians to recognise Israel as a Jewish state is like asking them to recognise their own cultural and historical defeat.

    In an interview published on Sunday with the Italian newspaper l’Unità, Sternhell argued that Israel practices “ethnic discrimination” on a daily basis and that Apartheid already exists in the country. He called on the international community to hold Israel to account and to demand that it dismantle most of the settlements, “or be an outcast”.~Monitor

    I won’t count how many thousands of words of this oinking dickspittle was just spewed onto the new T&S thread, but I can say it is verbosium agitatium, and it strikes me as off key. I read bad intent in this technique of splitting up the conversation with pure static holy-holy nincompoopia.

  182. 21st Century Schizoid Man
    … as the world turns like a medieval soup opera gone buck rogers …
    Buck Rogers is a fictional character who first appeared in Armageddon 2419 A.D. by Philip Francis Nowlan in the August 1928 issue of the pulp magazine Amazing Stories.
    He is a subject of ‘natural cryogenics’, having been put into a state of suspended animation by some gas in a cavern he was exploring. He wakes up in 2419 A.D. and joins the resistance to a high tech tyranny over the decimated population of humans by the ‘Transhuman’ “supermen” in control.

    Pretty heady stuff for 1928.

    I read the book sometime back in the late 1950’s or 1960’s. I was only vaguely familiar with the comic strip.
    While working at Universal-Hartland in N Hollywood, I was able to see the models and stroyboards used in the TV show – as well as the elaborate spaceships for the original Battlestar Galactica TV show, which had the special effects done at Hartland as well. Davy Jones was the head FX guy there. At the time I was working with Rob Bottin on The THING [1981 John Carpenter].

  184. “Modern Jews are essentially divided into two major categories, ethnically and culturally: Sephardim and Ashkenazim.

    The former are primarily of Spanish origin; the name Sephardim being derived from Sepharad, the Hebrew word for Spain, and are likely the closest to actual Semitic Jews that can be established. They were expelled from Spain toward the beginning of the sixteenth century and immigrated to the eastern Mediterranean and Balkans.

    As late as 1960s the Sephardic Jews numbered only about 500,000, compared with the Ashkenazim of the same period estimated at approximately twelve million. 61

    In defining the origins of the Ashkenazim, Alan Brook states that “The geographic location of the Ashkenaz, based on references in the Torah, may be centered around southern Russia, Armenia, and Asia Minor. The ashkaenoi (askae or askai) were the people also known as Phrygians or Mysians (Meshech).” Some historians claim that the name Ashkenaz applies exclusively to German Jews. However, more recent evidence shows that they had immigrated from the southern regions of Russia and western Asia and Asia Minor — that region clearly identified as the location and origin of the ancient Khazars. The name originally indicated Iranians and was later given as the name of the god of Meshech, Men Askaenos. “It should also be pointed out,” Brook adds, “that Ashkenaz did not become a definite Jewish designation for Germany until the eleventh century.”

    Michael Bociurkiw of the OSCE group of monitors at his daily briefing described part of the plane’s fuselage dotted with “shrapnel-like, almost machine gun-like holes.” He said the damage was inspected by Malaysian aviation-security officials .(Wall Street Journal, July 31, 2014)

    There are strong and persuasive reasons behind the stricture of “the separation between church and state” in the philosophy of Liberty and Justice. As all of us familiar with the rules of critical thinking and proper debate know, “appeals to authority” are logical fallacies that are shunned for just purposes. An appeal to the authority of a “God” is the ultimate of such a logical fallacy.

    There are religionists who insist that ‘secular reason’ is just another form of “religion” [“Humanism”], and that the philosophy of Liberty simply replaces “God” with man as the supreme authority in the universe. And those making this claim call this the ultimate sin. They claim that this is the work of “the devil”. But this argument is where reason dies and dogma reigns as king. This line of thinking is the genesis of religious war, of Allah verses Yahweh, of “my God is bigger than your god”, and the breakdown of a rational structure of civilization replaced by the barbarism of the gods of war, and the credo of “Might Makes Right”.

    It is this credo that embraces the idea that ‘means are justified by ends’ that spawns Realpolitik and the divisions of ‘Exceptionalism’ and base fear and loathing of “other”, manifest as xenophobia and racism.

    Dialog is of critical necessity if the world is ever to have peace. Dogma is the end of dialog, it rebukes discussion by ‘Moral Authority’ – not reason.

    This is a summary of why I reject sermonizing in favor of reasoned debate.

    Of course the jangling one made several more paragraphs of jingling woowoo along with that opening sentence.
    A large part of TM’s error is in his lack of historical memory – he has forgotten the dumbfuckery that Balsamo pulled on T&S a few months ago. To mention P4T to Craig was a grave mistake. Also TM’s obvious push to have me banned, using the terms he did was extraordinarily stupid. TM obviously is one who causes thinning and weakness in a yarn because of the uneven spin.
    May he rest in peace.

      This reads to me as the arrogant ravings of madness to me.

    I was somewhat surprised to find out that this comment was directed at me!
    Just out of the blue!! WTF?

    What a hypocritical prick this Huffing puffing asshole is…Especially when Craig made the explicit appeal that we refrain from personal attacks.
    As I replied there Hufferd can go fuck himself.

  195. Now Hufferd tag-teamed with Maxitwerp Bridges just a couple of threads past on T&S.
    I was civil to him on this new thread anyway. Now, just as Tamborina the Twit has seemingly vacated, after being backed up by the very same Maxitwerp earlier, suddenly Huffert pulls a Full Frontal Monty on me… it’s like a baton being passed in a relay.

    If these fuckers keep it up, Craig is going to end up going back to full moderation. What assholes they are! T&S has the best blog going, but as far as I am concerned these outbursts are aimed at him – an attempt to change his management style and spoil the free exchanges there.

    This brings us back to the notion that T&S is a high priority target for the Sunsteinian agitprop treatment. As mentioned earlier, Tamborina arrived on the blog as a Fetzer-bot. And I have suspected Maxitwat as being one of the 5th column for a long time. This leaves Hufferd as a wild card. He is probably just out for personal vengeance because I have smashed his ego so many times.

    It does get old, dealing with these creeps, they are all such weirdos and psychos, spewing such twisted bullshit.

  196. So as another day passes into the night the madness at T&S continues with Tamborina and Hufferd huffing their distracting nonsense.

    Huffy has indicated he is throwing in the towel, but I figure he is just going to hit the bottle again and come on more incoherent than he has been.

    Hahahaha…Tamborina claims to have been married to his present wife for 42 years, saying that must “count for something”…???… it is irrelevant twatscrabble such as this that shows NOTHING of what he says counts for anything. He is one of the biggist idiots I have ever encountered on the blogs…and I have met quite a few. “Cheers” he says at the end of each comment as if he is drinking a toast…maybe he and his wife live the Days of Wine and Roses, and that is what keeps them together.

    Well it has become obvious that some people don’t take this seriously. This is truly tragic considering the monstrous situation at hand; the genocidal war against the Palestinians, wholesale slaughter of men, women, and children…

    Some on this forum seem to take it all as a joke, to see this forum as ‘party time’, to come on here and jerk around, be clowns and play games.

    I find this attitude abhorrent and despicable. And I for one am sick of dealing with such unconscionable jerks. If these interlopers really had any compassion they would take the issue at hand seriously and not be such flippant wiseguys.

    As far as I am concerned they can go to Hell.

I have the time, temperament and energy for this. Many people do not have such time, temperament, energy, nor the focus and interest to get to the bottom of what has happened, is happening, and will likely happen in the sociopolitical sphere.

    My approach to conspiracy theory is based in systems science, because the conspiracy is systemic. It is not haphazard, uncoordinated, nor due to the personal initiatives of ‘bad apples’. The whole system and architecture of modern political power is corrupt and psychotic; anti-human and anti-truth.

    Chris Hedges on Why Israel Lies.
    “The Big Lie, as the father of American public relations, Edward Bernays, wrote, is limited only by the propagandist’s capacity to fathom and harness the undercurrents of individual and mass psychology. And since most supporters of Israel do not have a desire to know the truth, a truth that would force them to examine their own racism and self-delusions about Zionist and Western moral superiority, like packs of famished dogs they lap up the lies fed to them by the Israeli government. The Big Lie always finds fertile soil in what Bernays called the “logic-proof compartment of dogmatic adherence.” All effective propaganda, Bernays wrote, targets and builds upon these irrational “psychological habits.”

    This is the world Franz Kafka envisioned, a world where the irrational becomes rational.”


  202. “The Big Lie destroys any possibility of history and therefore any hope for a dialogue between antagonistic parties that can be grounded in truth and reality. While, as Hannah Arendt pointed out, the ancient and modern sophists sought to win an argument at the expense of the truth, those who wield the Big Lie “want a more lasting victory at the expense of reality.” The old sophists, she said, “destroyed the dignity of human thought.” Those who resort to the Big Lie “destroy the dignity of human action.” The result, Arendt warned, is that “history itself is destroyed, and its comprehensibility.” And when facts no longer matter, when there is no shared history grounded in the truth, when people foolishly believe their own lies, there can be no useful exchange of information. The Big Lie, used like a bludgeon by Israel, as perhaps it is designed to be, ultimately reduces all problems in the world to the brutish language of violence. And when oppressed people are addressed only through violence they will answer only through violence.”~Hedges

  203. As Łobaczewski points out in this book, there is some confusion between Psychopathy and Antisocial Personality Disorder and Sociopathy.


  204. “Cleckley posits that psychopathy is quite common in the community at large. His cases include examples of psychopaths who generally function normally in the community as businessmen, doctors, and even psychiatrists…psychopathy is being recognized as a more or less different type of human.
    Hervey Cleckley actually comes very close to suggesting that psychopaths are human in every respect – but that they lack a soul.”~Ibid

  205. “What seems to be so is that conscience and feelings are related to abstract concepts of “future” and “others”. It is ‘spatio-temporal’. We can feel fear, sympathy, empathy, sadness, and so on because we can imagine in an abstract way the future based on our own experiences in the past, or even just “concepts of experiences” in myriad variations.
    The psychopath does not seem to have this capacity. We can “see ourselves” in them even though they are “out there” and this evokes feelings in us. We can’t do something hurtful because we can imagine it being done to us and how it would feel. In other words, we can not only identify with others spatially – so to say – but also temporally – in time.

    They are unable to “imagine” in the sense of being able to really connect to
    images in a direct “self connecting to another self” sort of way.”~Ibid

    I have written about this myself, developed this same explanation on my own years ago; that empathy is actually a function of the imagination.~ww

It’s all about becoming aware, hence the difference between the dead glint in the stare of farm chattel or one held in bondage to the sharpness in the eye of a wild creature in total synchronicity to their environment. It’s about attaining a higher consciousness as opposed being held by default to the crocodile mind. One can only pity another so predisposed.

      • I have to say though, I still do not buy this “supernatural evil”, whether we use the terms “demons” – “devils” – “Jin” – or “reptilians”.

        All is just metaphor for the madness of human beings.

        I cannot believe in a devil because I know God.

      of the pathologic factors taking part in the processes of the generation of evil –

    “I tried to pull out and beg off last night before the filth bombs I knew were coming really started to fall, but you saw well that worked out — bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb in message after message after message while I continued to beg mercy! Mercy!!”

    What a disingenuous pathetic twat! I made one comment:

    –‘Ahhh…such a pathetic burlesque “poor poor” Hufferd mews for the forum.’

    This single comment after Hufferd “begged off”.

    Hufferd is making this latest hyperbole excuse because Craig finally came back on T&S, really pissed at the madness ensuing there.

    • I will also say that I don’t want to read any apologies from this squirrely punk Hufferd.
      I said I want no comments from him directed to me, I mean exactly that.

    “So let’s all aspire to a higher standard of discourse even if someone else falls short of that. We can strongly argue our positions without getting personal. Because when we get personal the real discussion ends. I appreciate everyone’s co-operation.”

    Yes, Craig has wisdom beyond his rather young age.

  208. “Western leaders are not only complicit, they have blood on their hands.

    This carefully planned Israeli military undertaking was coordinated with the Pentagon and NATO. It has broad geopolitical and economic ramifications (which are beyond the scope of this article).

    Israel’s military actions are supportive of Washington’s Middle East strategy which consists in destabilizing and fragmenting Israel’s neighboring Arab States. It is also part of the road map of US-NATO-Israel war plans directed against Iran. The timing of Israel’s attack on Gaza coincides with the militarization of Eastern Europe and relentless war threats directed against Russia.”~Michel Chossudovsky
    . . . .
    1,700,000 people (the entire population of the Gaza Strip) have been affected by the destruction of electricity, water and waste-water infrastructure.



  209. “The schizoidal psychopath operates as a whole as upon shifting sand. They lack a natural sense of psychological realities.”~ Łobaczewski – pg 231

    On this page makes non too subtle remarks as to the mother as the carrier of the psychopathic genes, and alludes to the Jews as the most prevalent per capita of schizoidal psychopaths. I will note that it is in the tradition of the Jews themselves that the mother is the one who determines whether one is automatically considered a Jew.
    But this is a complex issue that is hardly finalized by discussion of DNA, but rather more confusion is added.

    I would also add that being Polish, Łobaczewski refers to the Ashkenazim, and not the Biblical “Jew”. Why this left turn into ethnicity by Łobaczewski, I am uncertain, as it is fairly determined that some general proportion of around 4% to 9% of the total population of every human group is psychopathic.

  210. And so, if I consider Tamborina a salon debils, does that make me cruel, or simply frank?

  211. “When Genocide is Permissible” – Times of Israel, August 1st, 2014

    Closing paragraph:
    “I will conclude with a question for all the humanitarians out there. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly stated at the outset of this incursion that his objective is to restore a sustainable quiet for the citizens of Israel. We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people. If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?” ~Yochanan Gordon


  212. While both sites purged the story, Yochanan Gordon continued to defend his views on his Twitter account. When a user responded to his latest tweet, he said, “Every other path to coexistence has failed miserably. [Israel has] been the Jewish homeland for 3,000 years. Do we leave now?”
    . . . . . .
    I have an answer for this psychopath – YES leave NOW! Better late than never.
    . . . . . .
    Gordon’s Twitter account has since been deleted.

    “The kid’s genocide justification never would have appeared in The Times of Israel if its boss, David Horovitz, didn’t want it on the site.
    And Horovitz doesn’t go to the lavatory, much less publish word one in the TOI, without getting prior approval from his bosses, Avigdor Lieberman, Naftali Bennett, and Danny Danon, and their handlers in the Kahane Movement that controls Judea and Samaria through, among other tools..”~Comment on the story


    The Black Heart of Zion Revealed

    A lot of Israelis and supporters of Israel are backing away in horror from a blatant revealing of what is supposed to remain their SECRET desire.

    Things like the Yochanan Gordon column are not supposed to be said out-loud, they are meant to be thought but not spoken. But this psychopathic murderous attack could not take place if genocide was not the real intent of Israel and their patron, Amerika.

  213. A 72-hour truce went into effect at 8 a.m. today in Gaza, shortly after a final flurry of Hamas rocket attacks and Israeli airstrikes. Israeli ground troops are now withdrawing from the area.

    “Every year during the first two weeks of August the mass news media and many politicians at the national level trot out the “patriotic” political myth that the dropping of the two atomic bombs on Japan in August of 1945 caused them to surrender, and thereby saved the lives of anywhere from five hundred thousand to one million American soldiers, who did not have to invade the islands. Opinion polls over the last fifty years show that American citizens overwhelmingly (between 80 and 90%) believe this false history which, of course, makes them feel better about killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians (mostly women and children) and saving American lives to accomplish the ending of the war.”

      • Tamborina’s pretense to being “Enlightened” is so trite and superficial as to be laughable.

        He speaks out of both sides of his mouth; he claims he doesn’t speak to religion, while he sermonizes about “God”. He claims proofs to reincarnation, but claims this is not a theological issue.

        He doesn’t understand the definitions of words, nor grasp the matter of metaphor, nor reason in philosophy. He blathers but is insulted when called a ‘twit’.

        It is obvious this twit is not a serious person. I don’t think there are any who disagree with me on these points besides those who have been devastated by my logic and biting critiques of their own flaccid thought processes. Maxitwat and the Huffing Puffing nincompoop are recent examples.

  218. Victims of war: How Gaza conflict will traumatize a generation of adolescents
    Date: August 6, 2014
    Source: University of Leicester
    A new study has examined adolescent victims of conflict in the Gaza strip and has found that exposure to war-torn environments has a lasting and damaging effect on the psychology of young people. The study investigated types of traumatic events experienced by Palestinian adolescents exposed to war in Gaza in relation to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and coping strategies and has found that a substantial number of adolescents in these situations develop a range of long-lasting emotional and behavior problems.

    The paper, entitled ‘Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety and Coping Strategies among Palestinians Adolescents Exposed to War in Gaza’ has been published in the Arab Journal of Psychiatry and was co-authored by Professor Panos Vostanis from the University of Leicester’s Greenwood Institute of Child Health, Professor Abdelaziz Thabet from Al-Quds University and Omar EL-Buhaisi from the University of Leicester.

  224. Zionism and Psychopathy are simply distinguished by the brand name of Zion. For Zionism is classic essential psychopathy full bloom. It is not only Israel now that manifests this brand of psychopathy but it’s patron, Zionist Amerika, and the shared agenda for a Zionist World Order. And this is the very agenda laid out in the Protocols of Zion in their various stages throughout history. From the brand of Illuminati, to Amerikan Exceptionalsim, to full blown Zionist Amerika, this Ponerist path has been documented by deep history.

  225. The Second Coming – Yeats … ‘Spiritus Mundi’

    TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    ~William Butler Yeats – 1919

    The context and essence of the two sites are different. This site is my personal journal, even though open to public purview. But it is not a discussion site for the general public, but only for those who have previously vetted as personal friends.

    Some may recall the question I would ask quite often when I first began posting on T&S, that is:

    ‘What does it mean to be well adjusted in a pathological society?’

    The answer is of course: It means one has become pathological oneself. It means one hasn’t escaped from the patterning and conditioning of the group mind created by the psychopathic PR of the current post industrial society.

    Some of us have struggled beyond this programming and thrown off the greater portion of our addiction to the “norms” of this culture, have come awake, as it were. But there are times, such as these right now, which may be termed ‘a quickening’ when a crisis arises and those who are close to us, who never made it over to the awoken side begin a concerted appeal to us to return to ‘normal’ – to go along with them as the crowd to get along – and these pressures to conform can be great, sometimes overwhelming like ones nerves are totally frayed.

    This type of crisis of enlightenment is presented in the film The Matrix when the character Cypher, one of those Morpheus has rescued/recruited makes a deal with “the agents” to go back. But it is a false promise, to be able to “go back”, one can never really go back once the Red Pill is taken and certain knowledge sinks in. The attempt to ‘go back’, to rejoin the herd will only cause more confusion and imbalance in ones life and emotions. And the fickle psychos of Disneyworld will never really accept you back.
    The only choice is to retain your convictions and refuse to be seduced by the appeals of the somnolent herd, regardless of how good of friends they once were or seemed to be.

  229. Civil Society & Polite Eloquent Discourse As Baby-Talk

    Plush toy dialog, the seduction of the Anchor Man, the saccharine scripts of politicians, and “everything’s better with blue bonnet on it”. Conditioning and programming with the carrot… the pretense there really is no stick, that is a “false memory” because everything is beautiful in “the land of the free” where the barkers smile and hand out free colored balloons. Where the rich and famous invite you into their house to show you they are just ‘everyday people’, while Oprah balloons, and shrinks, and balloons and shrinks like the phases of the moon. Yes it’s candy mountain from sea to shining sea…where seldom is heard a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day, and turnips taste like cherry pie, and you’re the apple of the Presidents eye, and Jesus loves you this you know, cuz the bible tells you so.

    Well, THAT is all bullshit. It’s “goochie goochie goo” – it’s baby talk.

  230. The Government Is Breaking the Law By Failing to Prosecute Torture

    “But over five years later, no “patriotic official” has been indicted, no judges have been impeached and no professor has been stripped of his academic tenure—not even the one who defined torture as “equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death.” In June, John Yoo was awarded an endowed faculty chair at the UC Berkeley School of Law. Bush appointee Jay Bybee remains on the federal bench. Cheney’s legal alchemist David Addington is now creating alternative realities at the Heritage Center. Psychologist James Mitchell, one of the consultants who helped the Bush administration render the Geneva Conventions quaint, didn’t lose his professional credentials, even after claiming, “I’m just a guy who got asked to do something for his country.” Jose Rodriguez, who as head of the CIA’s clandestine service personally ordered the destruction of dozens of interrogation videotapes, is a conservative hero who has smeared the soon-to-be-released Senate Intelligence Committee report on the CIA torture program despite having never read a word of it. Meanwhile, Dick Cheney appears regularly on your television screen to accuse President Obama of treason. As for Cheney’s former Oval Office sock puppet, George W. Bush is free to paint himself in the shower and give speeches to “replenish the ol’ coffers.”~Daily Kos

    [They have “moved forward” with torture in their back pocket..]

    “Obama and Attorney General Holder are also complicit for failing to prosecute those who ordered or covered up torture. As progressive writer Dan Froomkin reported last year:

    The Constitution Project’s Task Force on Detainee Treatment … lays the blame fully at the feet of the current administration, for covering up what happened and stifling any sort of national conversation on the topic — and the media, for splitting the difference between the facts and the plainly specious argument made by torture regime’s architects that what occurred should be defined as something other than what it so obviously was.

    The report points out, as I have in the past, that neither Obama nor Congress have done a thing to make sure that, the next time a perceived emergency comes up, some other president or vice president won’t decide to torture again.

    No CIA personnel have been convicted or even charged for numerous instances of torture in CIA custody — including cases where interrogators exceeded what was authorized by the Office of Legal Counsel, and cases where detainees were tortured to death. Many acts of unauthorized torture by military forces have also been inadequately investigated or prosecuted.

    So it’s not just Bush and Cheney who violated international law; now it’s Obama, too.

    The report is blistering about the cover-up. “The high level of secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees since September 11 cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security,” it states. “Ongoing classification of these practices serves only to conceal evidence of wrongdoing and make its repetition more likely.”

    And Obama appears to be continuing the “extraordinary rendition” type of torture.”

    – AUGUST 6, 2014 AT 4:30 PM

    Yes indeed “Notice the framing”. Notice Maxitwat putting his words in my mouth with quotations marks – rhetorically framing his OPINION as the truth.
    I hardly badger everyone. I have made reasonable criticisms of a select few wobbly characters on T&S, and Maxitwat is certainly one. This framing is his attempted vengeance for nailing his perpetual bullshit there.

    “Every discussion that Mr. McKee has ever closed had Mr. Rogue as an active, flame-throwing participant.”~Señora … same comment as above.

    This comment is snake piss, the anonymous entity ‘Señor El Once’ has in fact been the proximate cause of “every discussion that Mr. McKee has ever closed”.



  232. AUGUST 7, 2014 AT 10:49 AM – My inquiry to Craig:

    And now this Mr McKee,

    I was duly cited and reprimanded for using the rather tepid “insult” of the word “twit” just a thread ago.

    Yet I get framed thus by SEO:
    “..ego-centric, sociopathic Mr. Rogue..”

    Is it because SEO is civil and formal enough to use “Mr” before my name that lets him off the hook for the myriad of obvious violations of not only decor, but direct orders not to mention his rocking horse topic?


    • At any rate, as far as all this flame-war bullshit that goes on like a carousel on the threads of T&S, I assert that I am no more aggressive or pugnacious than anyone else commenting there. I am indeed more frank and upfront with my critiques, meaning more honest and less ‘covert aggressive’ [often misframed as “passive aggressive”].

      Those who get the vapors over “language” are generally “shocked” theatrically, and react theatrically as well – it becomes bullshit burlesque dealing with such clowns, and their pretense to “civility”, which is based primarily in sophistry and candy coated rhetoric, and hiding behind happy faces.

      Some of these people are simply not very smart. Some obviously pros that have a job to do. Some are thin skinned and need assertiveness training to differentiate between aggression and assertion.

      I do not claim to be perfect, nor an angel. But I can detect disingenuous bullshit when I come across it. And it is the disingenuous bullshitters who have become my main detractors on T&S.

    The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said 520,000 people have been displaced by the fighting — more than a quarter of Gaza’s population. Yet the Egyptian-controlled Rafah border has remained closed throughout the military operation, leaving the population of Gaza with its back to the sea.
    Hospitals are struggling with more than 9,450 people injured by Israel’s assault. But Egypt has permitted only 11 injured Palestinians to exit Gaza for hospital treatment.
    Six Israeli warships crossed the Suez Canal from Aug. 1 to 3, an Egyptian official in the Suez Canal Authority revealed. The warships were loaded with 19 tons of military equipment. (occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com, Aug. 3)

  234. “In fact, visual stimuli, transduced by the rods and cones in the eyes, and sent by electro-chemical signals to the central nerous system via the optic nerves does not go directly to the occipetal cortex which is the primary region responsible for processing information. Instead, it first goes to the lateral geniculate nucleus of the Thalamus, another region of the brain that is a part of the lymbic system and important to emotional arousal.
    To put this in simpler terms, this means that you can experience an emotional reaction to something before you are consciously aware that you have even seen it.”~Laurie Manwell, University of Guelph

    Amygdala hijack is a term coined by Daniel Goleman in his 1996 book … From the thalamus, … which causes our bodies to go into a ‘fight or flight’ response.”

    Processing fear is a chain reaction in the brain triggered by stressful or threatening stimuli and resulting in physical symptoms of the fight-or-flight response. They include rapid heart beat, increased adrenaline and quickened breathing. Specific areas in the brain play major roles in the automatic fight-or-flight response, which follows two simultaneous paths once prompted: the low road, which progresses from thalamus to amygdala then to hypothalamus; and the high road, which takes longer and follows the path of thalamus through hippocampus, sensory cortex and amygdala to hypothalamus.


  235. Psychotic means essentially that the person is out of touch with reality. The symptoms are delusions, false beliefs out of touch with reality.

    Although no psychiatric or psychological organization has sanctioned a diagnosis titled “psychopathy”, assessments of psychopathic characteristics are widely used in criminal justice settings in some nations, and may have important consequences for individuals.[5] The term is also used by the general public, in popular press, and in fictional portrayals.[6]



    A Psychopath and a Sociopath are similar in their lack of empathy. However the first is now considered to be due to brain physiology, whereas the sociopath is considered to be induced by trauma, usually associated with the presence of a true psychopath in their lives.


  236. “Dysfunctions in the prefrontal cortex and amygdala regions of the brain are associated with specific learning impairments in psychopathy.[44][45][46][47] Since the 1980s, scientists have linked traumatic brain injury, including damage to these regions, with violent and psychopathic behavior.[44][45][46] Patients with damage in such areas resembled “psychopathic individuals” whose brains were incapable of acquiring social and moral knowledge; those who acquired damage as children may have trouble conceptualizing social or moral reasoning, while those with adult-acquired damage may be aware of proper social and moral conduct but be unable to behave appropriately.[44][45][46] Dysfunctions in the amygdala and ventromedial prefrontal cortex may also impair stimulus-reinforced learning in psychopaths, whether punishment-based or reward-based.[47] People scoring 25 or higher in the PCL-R, with an associated history of violent behavior, appear to have significantly reduced mean microstructural integrity in their uncinate fasciculus—white matter connecting the amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex.[48] There is DT-MRI evidence of breakdowns in the white matter connections between these two important areas.[48]

    Studies also suggest inverse relationships between psychopathy and intelligence, including with regards to verbal IQ.[6][18] Studies also indicate that different aspects of the definition of psychopathy (e.g. interpersonal, affective (emotion), behavioral and lifestyle components) can show different links to intelligence, and the result can also depend on the type of intelligence assessment (e.g. verbal, creative, practical, analytical).[6] However, Hare and Neumann state that a large literature demonstrates at most only a weak association between psychopathy and IQ. They consider that the early pioneer Cleckley included good intelligence in his checklist due to selection bias (since many of his patients were “well educated and from middle-class or upper-class backgrounds”) and state that “there is no obvious theoretical reason why the disorder described by Cleckley or other clinicians should be related to intelligence; some psychopaths are bright, others less so.”[6][49]

    A large body of research suggests that psychopathy is associated with atypical responses to distress cues (e.g. facial and vocal expressions of fear and sadness), including decreased activation of the fusiform and extrastriate cortical regions, which may partly account for impaired recognition of and reduced autonomic responsiveness to expressions of fear, and impairments of empathy.[50][51][52][53][54] Studies on children with psychopathic tendencies have also shown such associations.[55][56][57] The underlying biological surfaces for processing expressions of happiness are functionally intact in psychopaths, although less responsive than those of controls.[54][55][56][57] The neuroimaging literature is unclear as to whether deficits are specific to particular emotions such as fear. Some recent fMRI studies have reported that emotion perception deficits in psychopathy are pervasive across emotions (positives and negatives).[58][59]

    A study in which psychopathic criminals were brain-scanned while they watched videos of a person harming another individual found that the psychopaths’ empathic reaction initiated the same way it did for controls when they were instructed to empathize with the harmed individual, and that the area of the brain relating to pain was activated when the psychopaths were asked to imagine how the harmed individual felt. The research suggests how psychopaths could switch empathy on at will and would enable them to be both callous and charming.[60] Professor Simon Baron-Cohen suggests that, unlike the combination of both reduced cognitive and affective empathy often seen in those with classic autism, psychopaths are associated with intact cognitive empathy, implying non-diminished awareness of another’s feelings when they hurt someone.[61]

    However, subsequent work conducted by Professor Jean Decety with large samples of incarcerated psychopaths challenge this view. In one study, psychopaths were scanned while viewing video clips depicting people being intentionally hurt. They were also tested on their responses to seeing short videos of facial expressions of pain. The participants in the high psychopathy group exhibited significantly less activation in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, amygdala and periaqueductal gray parts of the brain, but more activity in the striatum and the insula when compared to control participants.[62] In a second study, individuals with psychopathy exhibited a strong response in pain-affective brain regions when taking an imagine-self perspective, but failed to recruit the neural circuits that are were activated in controls during an imagine-other perspective, in particular the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and amygdala, which may contribute to their lack of empathic concern.[63]”

  238. “An infirmity once characterizing the past century’s most severe totalitarian regimes has now taken root in Western public discourse and practice, a process akin to Orwellian “double think” acting as a form of de facto censorship preempting consideration of major issues and events. This mindset is obliquely shared by a majority of professional journalists, academics, and public office holders—in short, those who represent and lead public opinion. Their collective publicity of the unsaid preserves and perpetuates existing belief systems and power relations. To be sure, there are self-evident injunctions for those straying from such unspoken protocols, including expulsion from this professional class.”~James F. Tracy

    On August 4, 2014 the IDF released what they claimed to be scans of a captured Hamas combat manual which explains the benefits of human shields (Captured Hamas Combat Manual Explains Benefits of Human Shields). This juicy story got quite a few people excited, and within 2 days their blog post had over 81,000 likes on Facebook. It turns out though, that the documents that they uploaded were forgeries, and sloppy forgeries at that. The work was so shoddy that you don’t even have to be an expert to see the mistake.

    An introduction into the world of conspiracy
    Christopher Thresher-Andrews

    “They are examples of a cultural shift in the popularity of the ‘conspiracy theory’; alternative narratives of a world overshadowed by malevolent groups hell-bent on the
    destruction of civil liberties, freedom and democracy. They suggest that governments, secret religious groups, scientists s or private industry (often many of these combined) are responsible for either causing or covering up significant major world events for their own criminal ends…”


    This is again the typical official fairytale denial of the obvious by paid shills of the psychiatric industry that have a vested interest in the status quo.

    “Conspiracy theories are unsubstantiated, less plausible alternatives to the mainstream explanation of an event; they assume everything is intended with malignity. Crucially, they are also epistemically self-insulating in their construction and arguments.”~Ibid

    This paragraph is utterly hypocritical, as it actually describes what is going on in this article, which gives no substantiation for the assertions that a particular “conspiracy theory” is not true, but travels on with ‘psychological theory’ which is “epistemically self-insulating in their construction and arguments”.

    This is the same rhetorical nonsense propagated by the Sunstein agitprop.

  242. We see an interesting combination of cognitive biases, personality traits and other
    psychological mechanisms at play in the formation, propagation and belief in psychological theory itself. It is content to isolate itself from the particular facts of a given dispute in order to make general psychological interpretations completely devoid of the truth and facts of such disputes.

    Mainstream Psychology steadfastly refuses to honestly address the actual issues, but defends the status quo through empty speculation and theorizing. It is like piss calling lemonade yellow, with an appeal to authority.

    • “Conspiracy theories have low standards of evidence.”~Robert Brotherton [pg 12]

      Psychological theory on conspiracy theories has NO standards of evidence, because they do not deal with the evidence, but only unsubstantiated theory. The whole approach of this “Psychology” is nothing more than voodoo based on appeals to authority. These so-called psychologists writing on “conspiracy” are nothing but witch doctors shaking rattles and dancing around skulls, the skulls of all the victims of the grand conspiracy that foments the wars that murder millions in genocidal frenzy.
      The psychological field is insane by their own professed standards.

    Dear Don,

    Dahlia Wasfi (born 1971) is
    an Iraqi-American physician
    and peace activist. Born in
    New York City, her mother is
    is descended from Austrian Jews
    who fled to America from the
    Nazis and her father, a Muslim

    She graduated from Swarthmore
    College in 1993 with BA in Biology
    and earned her medical degree
    from the University of
    Pennsylvania in 1997.

    Part of Dr. Wasfi’s April 27, 2006
    address to the Congressional
    Progressive Caucus included
    these statements:

    “I speak to you today on behalf
    of relatives on my mother’s side –
    Ashkenazi Jews, who fled their
    homeland of Austria during
    Hitler’s Anschluss. It is for them
    that we say ‘Never again.’

    “I speak to you today on behalf
    of relatives on my father’s side,
    who are not living, but dying,
    under the occupation of this
    administration’s deadly foray in
    Iraq. From the lack of security to
    the lack of basic supplies to the
    lack of electricity to the lack of
    potable water to the lack of jobs
    to the lack of reconstruction to
    the lack of life, liberty, and the
    pursuit of happiness, they are
    much worse off now than before
    we invaded. ‘Never again’ should
    apply to them, too.

  245. “This epistemic strategy has been termed ‘cascade logic’, referring to the tendency for conspiracy theories to remain viable hypotheses by implicating more and more people in the alleged scheme (Goertzel, 2010; Sunstein & Vermeule, 2009).”~Ibid, pg 12

    Of course “cascade logic” is just a fancy term for misrepresenting the actual logic of presenting a systemic critique which posits that these “more and more people” need not be conscious participants, but merely those under chains of command {military} or carrying out innocuous duties that move an event forward without the participants being privy to the final outcome.
    That the whole criticism given by the mainstream is built of trite presumptions and rhetorical sophistry does not go unnoticed by the lucid critical thinking individual who simply refuses to accept such wild and unlikely Coincidence Theories as offered by the perpetrators and their criminal networks of official PR.

  246. A review of different approaches to study belief in conspiracy theories
    Anthony Lantian

    “For example, belief in conspiracy theories is positively related to openness to experience (Swami etal., 2011, 2013), political cynicism (Swami, Chamorro-Premuzic & Furnham, 2010; Swami et al., 2011), and paranormal beliefs (Darwin, Neave & Holmes, 2011; Swami 2011) We also know that belief in conspiracy theories is negatively related to level of trust of others (Abalakina-Paap et al., 1999; Goertzel, 1994; Wagner-Egger & Bangerter, 2007), self-esteem (Abakakina Paap et al., 1999; Swami et al., 2011), , and agreeableness (Swami et al., 2010, 2011). Of course, the correlational approach is limited because it could not ensure the causal direction of these effects.”~Anthony Lantian


    For me the question automatically arises, does this person Anthony Lantian, actually wish to be understood and followed? Or does he want us to play hopscotch with brackets?!

    “Taken together, these researches show that the simple fact to be exposed to conspiracy narratives increases the belief in various conspiracy theories.”~Ibid

    So the author is obviously likening ‘conspiracy theory’to a contagious virus – dismissing the possibility that conspiracy narratives often offer sets of facts that are not referred to by mainstream PR, which in themselves are evidences of conspiratorial motivations behind an event. After all knowing the facts, and realizing that those facts have been withheld by the authorities or the reportage of the MSM, would certainly lead to suspicion by a lucid critical thinker.

    • Alright… As I read this scrabble on “Conspiracy Theories” by these quacks calling themselves “psychologists”, all I can say is that OBVIOUSLY they are lost in Wonderland themselves, are delusional, and have little or a no grasp on political realities.

      I haven’t come across one article here that actually addresses any of the facts that are asserted to be “weak” or “less plausible”. Nothing is offered to show that the facts the ‘conspiracist’ cite are wrong. They don’t seem to think it is even necessary to address the actual issues. Anyone who calls that “critical thinking” is crazy as a shithouse rat.

      • These assholes are straight out of Skeptics Digest. Had to post my rant to you here. I do my best writing when I’m pissed off
        Way I see it is, those of us considered to be conspiracy theorists lurk in that grey area between two levels of bullshit. That being MSM spin on one side and right out 6 3 9/Tambourine man lunacy. Are there people in top levels that conspire? Is their spin to make us think that they’re omnipotent and in total control? Have we the people been conspired against for nothing other than personal gain by a group of psychopathic assholes that care nothing about the planet and the welfare of their fellow man?
        It doesn’t take a genius to answer in the affirmative to what I’ve stated here. Just someone that’s had a “Hey wait a minute” unsettling moment and the gumption to try to understand what caused that unsettling thought. These egghead gate keeper skeptic assholes should be rebuked for hiding behind their phony credentials for trying to convince those of us that have done actual research. Instead of puking out their uneducated verbosity like they really know what the fuck they’re taking about.

  247. Recursive Fury: Conspiracist Ideation in the Blogosphere …
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov › Journal List › Front Psychol › v.4; 2013

    “Conspiracist ideation, by contrast, is associated with the rejection of all scientific propositions tested.”~Lewandowsky and Oberauer

    Anthony Lantian, one of the quack ‘psychologists’ who’s paper I just read, had his email in his profile. So I just emailed my “less than satisfied” take on his work.

    I noted the fact that there is never any mention of the actual issues or facts in these articles on “Conspiracism” – that it is always a handwave and groundless assertion that the ‘conspiracy theory’ is wrong, without offering even a shred of proof.

    I imagine I will get the same snooty brush-off given by most acadamiacs, that being no reply whatsoever. They are terrified of catching ‘conspiracy cooties’ and answering questions they haven’t the slightest knowledge of.

    • Actually Mr Lantian was quite congenial and willing for discussion.
      Unfortunately I did not ask permission to publish our email exchange here before doing so. Mr Lantian quite justifiably feels I betrayed his trust. And the discussion has been broken off.

      My apologies to both Mr Lantian and the readership here for my indiscretion.

      I imagine my referring to him as a “quack” in my comment above did not help matters much either.

    “After ten years the 9/11 conspiracist movement is perhaps stronger than ever. Yet ten years of extensive investigations have not produced a single scrap of credible evidence to back up the conspiracist claims; no verified traces of explosives in either the Twin Towers or WTC 7, no evidence that Bin Laden or other members of al-Qaeda were employees of the C.I.A., no evidence of any member of the U.S. government conspiring to bring about the events which unfolded. By now we can be reasonably sure that the conspiracy theories are not true. Yet the theorists continue to make a lot of noise and garner popular support.”~September 11, 2013 – by Rob Brotherton

    I will not comment here as to these bold assertions, as the issue is well known to the readers of this blog.

    • Oh brother!!! I hadn’t read the comments under that article before posting the link.

      There are a couple of very informed posters criticizing the article with facts and rational argumentation – then there is this character called ConspiracyKiller, who is a total lunatic woowoo fruitcake.

      Y’all should check out the commentary there. Pathos in the extreme.

    • Robert Brotherton:
      “Rob is a doctoral researcher at Goldsmiths, University of London, where his thesis addresses how to define the term conspiracy theory, how to measure conspiracist beliefs, and the cognitive origins of conspiracy theories.”
      Perhaps Rob can tell us how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

  249. “The paradigmatic case of this sort of vagueness is the 9/11 Truth Movement which besides its age and popularity, spends little time pointing out perpetrators of and motives for carrying out the 9/11 attacks. It seems far more common to examine alleged anomalies and dodge providing a coherent interpretation for the available evidence (Clarke, 2008) …This pattern of vague theorising has repeated itself with many events since then”~Michael Wood – pg 22
    – Issue 88 September 2013 31 © The British Psychological Society

    Sometimes one gets the impression that these ‘psychologist’ live on an entirely different planet, for it’s as if their ideas are brewed in a communal Calderon and they each simply spoon out a bowl and serve in unconsciously!

    One of the very first things pointed out by independent researchers was the PNAC document calling for a “New Pearl Harbor”. These expositions by such research used the very focused and specific methods of deductive reasoning to posit who committed the crimes of 9/11, and why, and went on to prove how.

    Out of one side of their mouths, these so-called “skeptics” complain that the “truthers” make unsubstantiated charges against members of the government, military and intelligence agencies, and from the other side they claim that we are “vague” and “and dodge providing a coherent interpretation for the available evidence.”

    The author uses the term, “alleged anomalies” to characterize huge discrepancies in the official narrative, while never addressing such discrepancies with any specificity whatsoever. For them it is all vague “psychologizing” and dodging a coherent interpretation of available evidence.

    Are they delusional? Disingenuous? Driven by political agenda? Heal thyself physician!


  250. The detrimental nature of conspiracy theories
    by Daniel Jolley

    “…with many millions endorsing conspiracy theories today (e.g. Sunstein & Vermeule, 2009). Therefore, with such a vast amount of endorsement, it is important to understand the consequences of holding such a belief. What’s the impact? Socio-political behavioural domain…Conspiracy theories have been shown to impact one’s beliefs, attitudes and behavioural intentions.”~Daniel Jolley
    – pg 35 PsyPAG Quarterly

    Yes, and this is indeed a danger to the status quo, the power elite and the despotic rule of the agenda of the New World Order. It would certainly be “detrimental” to the ruling elites should a sizable portion of society come out of the trance induced by modern PR.
    Therefore these psychologist are preparing a new formula of rhetorical sedative to put the people back into their trance.

  251. “Whilst conspiracy theories can be a popular topic of conservation, their negative impact does need to be highlighted and, in the near future, limited.”~~Daniel Jolley

    This is Jolley’s closing remark in the essay in PsyPAG Quarterly. One might wonder what steps will be advised to be taken by these psychologists who feel that conspiracy theories have a negative impact. Sunstein has himself proposed legislation might be needed to outlaw the promotion of ‘conspiracy theories’. He has already set in motion an army of infiltrators to clog blogs with “cognitive dissonance” using disruption techniques, otherwise known in intelligence terms as ‘agitprop’.
    The military think tanks are already proposing that ‘conspiracy theorists’ are a type of “terrorist’, and a danger to society.

    So the points about the dangers to society of ‘conspiracy theories’ never seems to balance itself with the clear and present danger of a despotic police state. Those who can deny that the western governments have now become panoptic maximum security states are simply delusional.


    The widely known translation of ‘Al Qaeda’, sometimes spelled ‘Al Qaida’, is ‘The Base’. However, this is not the only translation of the ominous term. There is another. “Ana raicha Al Qaeda” is colloquial for “I’m going to the toilet”. A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa’ada” which mean “to sit”, pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the “Hamam Franji” or foreign toilet, and “Hamam Arabi” or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called “Ma Qa’adia” or “Little Qaeda”. Why would a terrorist group call itself ‘The Toilet’? Did Osama really choose to name his terror network after potty humor? (The CIA came up with the name and are still laughing about it to this day.)

    “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US.” ~ Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook

    Spanish-American War: Trial Run for Interventionism
    Written by James Perloff

    Cuba: Background to a Battleground

    “In the late 19th century, citizens were increasingly alarmed that monopolistic New York banking interests — represented by such names as Morgan, Rockefeller, Harriman, Carnegie, and Rothschild — were gaining a stranglehold on our economy. This helped inspire the 1891 establishment of the Populist Party, a grassroots movement of dissatisfied voters who perceived increasingly fewer differences between the Democratic and Republican parties, many of whose bosses were beholden to the bankers.

    The Wall Street cabal realized that to thwart populism, it would be expedient to remove attention from themselves by inflaming Americans with hatred of another enemy. The enemy chosen was Spain, over the issue of Cuba. The reasons for this choice were as complex as they were sinister.

    Spain was Europe’s leading colonial power in the 16th and 17th centuries, occupying much of North and South America. Through treaties and local revolutions, Spain lost much of this territory by the 19th century, but still retained a few possessions — notably Cuba, the world’s wealthiest colony and largest sugar producer by the 1820s.

    Also in the late 19th century, a violent revolutionary movement hobbled Cuba’s prosperity. Most Americans considered this an internal Spanish affair. They had always viewed the purpose of our military as self-defense; furthermore, intervening in Cuba would have violated our neutrality laws. Transforming these attitudes required manipulation of public opinion.”~Perloff

    Astonishing! Yes incredible and amazing that anyone could say this as an opening sentence about the JFK assassination. The ignorance driving these words is emmence as yes, it has been 50 years and much has subsequently been revealed about the event.

    But the author is a “psychologist” and isn’t interested or even mildly curious about the facts of one of the signal events of our lifetimes – he wants to figure out why “conspiracy theorists” think the way they do. It doesn’t seem to occur to some people locked into their own little worlds of specialty studies, that the reason people think this was a conspiracy is simply because it was.



  259. On The Panoptic Maximum Security State

    As Foucault puts it, the Panopticon is polyvalent in its applications; it serves to reform the prisoner. The Panopticon provides us with a model in which a self-disciplined society is conditioned to the habituation of acceptance of this rape of dignity as “normal”.
    This condition leads to herd behavior and activities. Even though a sane person would realize that “political participation” is actually nothing but empty ritual.
    Those who posit such obvious points cause fear and loathing in those who are under such programming. And there is even training for those such as these who desire to “help the herd”, and who feel every emotion of righteousness and moral authority to step up for “intervention” to help cure the rare sane individual in their midst.
    As control is the prime directive, it is the most focused and finely tuned instruments seeing to the tiniest detail to refine the tools of manipulation and direction of the society.
    Every topic and activity of people’s lives must be monitored and controlled by the apparatus building the maximum security state.

    Orwell gave us a preview of this society in his dystopian novel NINETEEN EIGHTY FOUR.
    The concepts of ‘doublethink’ and ‘newspeak’ are prescient for his time. That the mainstream consensus characterizes the story as “science fiction”, it can be hand waved as not a serious work for grasping the despotic nature of the present societies of this brave new world.

    I was informed by one of these nanny do-gooders today that all of our rights and freedom are intact and only “conspiratards” had the ‘bad thoughts’ that I have written about. It is as funny as it is tragic, and is standard script; as it is from central casting. This one, a gravitar called ‘conspiracykiller’ is a True Believer. As much a fanatic as Paul, one of the main authors and ‘saint’ of biblical myth. His certainty is sublime. He loves Big Brother.

    • As for the term polyvalent as used above, what we are speaking to is the panopticon’s universal applicability to the manipulation of human behavior.

      The culture has been seeped in it from cradle to grave for several generations. It has progressed to the stage of an utterly pathological society.The ambiguity of language and the servile acceptance of contradictory construction of thoughts has developed a herd of somnambulist human beings stuffed with psychotic delusions like walking talking voodoo dolls.

    Was Putin Targeted for Mid-Air Assassination?
    August 8, 2014

    Exclusive: Official Washington’s conventional wisdom on the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down blames Russian President Putin, but some U.S. intelligence analysts think Putin, whose plane was flying nearby, may have been the target of Ukrainian hardliners who hit the wrong plane, writes Robert Parry.

    By Robert Parry

    U.S. intelligence analysts are weighing the possibility that the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was a botched attempt by extremists in the Ukrainian government to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin whose aircraft was returning from South America the same day, according to a source briefed on the U.S. investigation.

    If true, the direction of the investigation into the July 17 crash has veered dramatically from initial U.S. government allegations that eastern Ukrainian rebels, using a Russian-supplied anti-aircraft battery, were responsible for bringing down the plane killing 298 people onboard.

    A side-by-side comparison of the Russian presidential jetliner and the Malaysia Airlines plane.
    A side-by-side comparison of the Russian presidential jetliner and the Malaysia Airlines plane.
    The Obama administration used those claims to whip up an anti-Russian hysteria that prompted European countries to ratchet up economic sanctions against Moscow, starting what now looks like an incipient trade war.

    But the U.S. analysts dismissed those original suspicions because they could find no evidence that such a missile battery had been supplied by the Russians or was in the possession of the rebels, prompting a shift in thinking toward a scenario in which Ukrainian hardliners working with elements of the air force may have tried to ambush Putin’s plane but instead hit the Malaysian airliner, said the source speaking on condition of anonymity.

    Putin flies in a plane with similar red, white and blue markings as the Malaysian airliner and was known to be on his way home after a six-day visit to South America. But his plane took a different route and landed safely in Moscow.

    After the crash, as U.S. intelligence analysts pored over phone intercepts and other intelligence data, they began to suspect that the motive for the shoot-down was the desire among some Ukrainian extremists to eliminate Putin whom they had been privately vowing to kill – words initially viewed as empty bluster but which were looked at differently in hindsight – the source said.

    If some Ukrainian authorities were hoping to ambush Putin’s plane, they also would have had only a matter of minutes to detect the aircraft’s presence and make a decision to fire, so it could be plausible that the attackers made a hasty decision to hit Putin’s plane before they realized that they had made a tragic mistake.

    Blaming Russia

    After the crash, the Ukrainian government quickly assembled some pieces of information from “social media” to pin the blame on the eastern Ukrainian rebels and the Russian government for what would have been a reckless decision to supply such powerful weapons to a poorly trained force.

    The rebels denied having a Buk anti-aircraft battery capable of reaching an aircraft flying at 33,000 feet and the Russians denied having supplied one, but those denials were brushed aside by the mainstream U.S. news media and were rejected as well by senior U.S. officials. Only three days after the crash, Secretary of State John Kerry made the rounds of five Sunday talk shows to embrace the Ukrainian government’s assertions although the official investigation into the crash had just begun.

    The following Tuesday senior U.S. intelligence officials briefed mainstream reporters from several news outlets offering qualified support to the claims by Kiev and Kerry, but some journalists noted the lack of any real evidence and the briefing’s curious reliance on “social media” rather than aerial reconnaissance, phone intercepts or other official sources. The absence of this corroborating evidence suggested that the case against the rebels and Russia was weaker than the Obama administration was letting on.

    Yet, because of the high-level endorsements of Russia’s presumed guilt, the U.S. intelligence analysts are moving cautiously in developing their alternative scenario, said the source, who added that another line of inquiry still being pursued is that the Ukrainian military brought down the passenger plane simply to create a provocation that could be turned against the rebels and Russia.

    But the assassination motive would seem to make more sense given the intense hatred expressed by Ukrainian leaders toward Putin and how Ukrainian extremists would view the murder of Putin as a giant feather in their cap.

    Still, the idea of assassinating the Russian president by shooting down his plane – even if the attack were carried out by hardliners without the approval of top officials – could have provoked a major international crisis. Nuclear-armed Russia would have almost surely retaliated against Ukraine, possibly with a full-scale invasion which could have escalated into a dangerous military confrontation with the United States.

    This possibility of a cascading crisis beyond the control of rational policymakers has always been a risk since the U.S.-backed overthrow of elected Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Feb. 22, a putsch spearheaded by neo-Nazi militias though also supported by more moderate political figures. The U.S. State Department quickly embraced the coup regime as “legitimate,” but ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine, which had been Yanukovych’s political base, resisted the new order.

    Crimea, another stronghold of ethnic Russians, voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and rejoin Russia, a move endorsed by Putin and backed by Russian troops who were stationed in Crimea, the site of the Russian naval base at Sebastopol. The annexation of Crimea was heartily denounced by President Barack Obama and U.S. allies in Europe, who began applying sanctions on Russia.

    Meanwhile, the new Ukrainian government, which gave the neo-Nazis several ministries in appreciation for their key role in the coup, began calling the ethnic Russian resistance “terrorists.” New National Guard units, formed from neo-Nazi militias, were dispatched to intimidate ethnic Russians in the southern city of Odessa, where scores were killed when a pro-Kiev mob set a trade union building ablaze.

    A Worsening Crisis

    As the crisis worsened, several eastern cities in the Donbass region also voted to secede and an armed resistance emerged against the Kiev regime, which responded by vowing to crush the rebellion with an “anti-terrorist operation” that has included artillery and aerial bombardments against towns and cities held by the rebels.

    On Friday, a Ukrainian parliamentary group reported that more than 10,000 people have been killed in Kiev’s offensive since April, a number far higher than earlier estimates.

    Angered by the mounting violence, the Russians lodged murder accusations against two Ukrainian officials, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and Ihor Kolomoisky, a billionaire oligarch who was appointed by the coup regime to be governor of the southeastern Dnipropetrovsk Region.

    Kolomoisky, known for his strong-arm business tactics including deploying paid thugs to intimidate rivals, is now using his fortune to finance paramilitary units, such as the Dnipro Battalion which is considered one of the most aggressive and brutal units in the “anti-terrorist operation” in eastern Ukraine.

    Since the February coup, Kolomoisky also has engaged in a bitter war of words with Putin whom he publicly mocked as a “schizophrenic shorty.” But Kolomoisky’s fury toward Putin has intensified in the face of the Russian murder charge and other threats to the billionaire’s PrivatBank holdings. In private conversations, Kolomoisky has made angry threats against Putin, the source said.

    Other Ukrainian officials have vowed to kill Putin. Ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, a onetime Kolomoisky ally, said in an intercepted phone: “It’s about time we grab our guns and kill, go kill those damn Russians together with their leader.”

    Though U.S. intelligence was aware of such threatening anti-Putin rhetoric via American intercepts, the rants were not taken seriously, at least not until after the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner, the source said. Now, they are reportedly being studied as a possible motive for the July 17 attack.

    Another curious development was the sudden resignation on Thursday of Andriy Parubiy as chief of Ukraine’s national security. A longtime neo-Nazi leader, Parubiy had organized and directed the paramilitary forces that spearheaded the putsch on Feb. 22 forcing Yanukovych and his government officials to flee for their lives.

    Parubiy refused to explain his reason for quitting but some analysts believe it may have a connection to the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down, the source said. The U.S. intelligence analysts specifically said their evidence does not implicate Ukraine’s current President Petro Poroshenko or Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, but they did not extend that clearance to the more extreme elements of the government, the source said.

    Russian Evidence

    Based on technical evidence that Moscow has supplied to U.S. and other investigators, it appears that the Ukrainian military had several Russian-made Buk anti-aircraft missiles along the path of the Malaysia Airlines flight as well as two jetfighters in the air in the vicinity of the doomed plane.

    Eyewitnesses also reported seeing one or two Ukrainian jetfighters near the airliner right before it was blown out of the sky. Two theories are that the jetfighters were trying to identify the plane or were responsible for finishing it off if the missile failed to do the job.

    An independent analysis by an expert on the Buk systems, who has reviewed the Russian evidence, says it shows that one of the Ukrainian anti-aircraft batteries was in position to take down the Malaysian airliner by inflicting damage consistent with the wreckage that has so far been recovered from the plane.

    As the pieces of this puzzle fill in, the image that emerges is of a possible Ukrainian ambush of a jetliner heading into Russian airspace that had markings very similar to President Putin’s official plane. As shocking as that picture may be, there is a grim logic to it, given the demonization of Putin who has been likened to Hitler and Stalin by pundits and politicians from Ukraine to the United States.

    However, even if the U.S. intelligence analysts do assemble a strong case implicating an extremist faction within the Ukrainian government, there is still the political problem for the Obama administration of dealing with a conclusion so dramatically at odds with the original accusations aimed at the rebels and Russia.

    Powerful people are notoriously unwilling to admit mistakes, especially when it could open them to charges that they rushed to judgment and behaved recklessly. There are similarities with the hasty U.S. conclusions a year ago when sarin gas killed hundreds outside Damascus on Aug. 21 – and the finger of blame was pointed immediately at the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

    On Aug. 30, Secretary Kerry declared repeatedly that “we know” that the Assad regime was guilty, but some U.S. intelligence analysts were privately expressing their doubts and refused to endorse a “Government Assessment” which presented no verifiable evidence to support the accusations. The four-page white paper also suppressed the dissents of the analysts.

    Over the ensuing months as much of Kerry’s case fell apart, some of these analysts came to believe that rebel extremists were likely responsible for the attack as a provocation to draw in the U.S. military into the civil war on their side. But the U.S. government has never retracted its allegations against the Syrian government. [For details, see Consortiumnews.com’s “The Collapsing Syria-Sarin Case.”]

    Given how far senior U.S. officials have gone in heaping blame for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down on the rebels and the Russians, it is hard to envision a walk-back of those accusations regardless of the actual evidence. To compel that would require true courage from U.S. analysts or from international investigators looking into the crash.

    It is never easy to contradict important people, especially when they have leveled such serious accusations so confidently. That is one reason why Kerry and the mainstream U.S. news media should have held back on their conclusions until a thorough investigation had been done.

    • And the Russians are duly concerned with these provocations by the US administration:

  264. “Leading into the next problem is the idea that human behavior is “random” or “unpredictable”. I think this stems from our belief in free will, and the apparent agency behind our actions. However, from studying psychology, we know that humans are incredibly predictable; essentially they are nothing more than large meaty billiard balls.” ~Mr.Samsa

    So psychology posits that there is no ‘free will’; only genetic predisposition and environmental factors of experience.
    So if there is no ‘free will’ to begin with why be concerned with freedom of choice? If I am compelled to act a certain way given the stimulus, then why not build a contrived society by controlling the stimuli? Why not have despotic structure of control?

    How would one differentiate from ‘free will’ and ‘freedom of choice’?
    Do you truly believe there is no conscious agency, but that this is only an “appearance’?
    That in effect human beings are merely complex automatons?

    To merit consideration, any assertion that a prosaic substance such as paint could match the characteristics we have described would have to be accompanied by empirical demonstration using a sample of the proposed material, including SEM/XEDS and DSC analyses.

    Millette did not meet the challenge.
    Incorrect. There was aluminum. You’re just contesting that it was elemental aluminum. Millette concludes that no elemental aluminum is present in the chips he studied.
    the material reacted at 430C and we get the observed spike. after the reaction took place is when jones’ found the iron and silicon rich microspheres. did millette heat his chips up to 430C?
    millette does not even know what kind of paint he found.
    However the DSC analysis (Fig 19 Fig 29) are highly significant in that they show that the rate of the energy release is
    extremely high: a very narrow and high peak, even higher than the reference nanothermite. This is what matters: power density
    (Watt/g )and not energy density (J/g). I expect the oxydation in the air of an organic component to, may be, release much energy but certainly not at such rate, and if it does i would again conclude that the chip is a very powerful staff even if cannot say that this is due to a thermitic reaction.”
    “Dr. Farrer has ignited a paint sample in a DSC and the paint sample showed a much broader thermal spike, indicating a relatively slow heat-release”~Jones

    The LLNL tests on known nano-thermite referred to in the Harrit
    et al. paper were conducted in air — according to an interview by Dr. Farrer with one of the LLNL researchers listed on that paper.

    The key issue you correctly identify is important to re-emphasize: the formation of metallic-iron-rich spheres upon ignition of the red material — which demonstrates very high temperatures and that a thermitic reaction has occurred.~ProfJones on Sun, 02/12/201
    Replication has already occured
    with the work of Chemical Engineer, Mark Basile, who independently confirmed the thermitic findings of the Bentham paper. Mark found and analyzed the red/gray chips in WTC dust samples.
    Mark Basile has done excellent work so far on the red-gray
    chips; please note that his research is continuing (I understand).

    “Furthermore, paint does not ignite when subjected to a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) like these chips do, demonstrating energetic properties” — actually, paint samples will probably ignite in a DSC while demonstrating different properties (such as the narrowness of the thermal spike).

    Dr. Farrer has ignited a paint sample in a DSC and the paint sample showed a much broader thermal spike, indicating a relatively slow heat-release (compared to the red/gray chips).~ProfJones on Sun, 02/12/2012

  266. The JREF forum hired a scientist named Millette to test WCT dust samples to debunk the Jones-Harrit et al NanoThermite paper.
    At one point Millette passed preliminary notes to the JREF forum so the monkeys there could hoot and holler about it. But it turns out now that Millette did not publish the report. It is not conclusive whether it did not pass peer review, or if he simply withdrew it. But it is a dead letter.

    Now it has also been discovered that Millette was one of the scientists involved in giving the green light to the EPA for the clean-up of the WTC site, which as we all know was based on fraudulent science and hundreds of those workers involved now are suffering from many types of cancers and other ailments do to the extreme toxicity of that dust and environment. There are now parties out to take Millettes head. He is liable for criminal fraud in that case.

    Harrit´s paper is essentially flawless according to one of the referees that reviewed the paper on behalf of the journal, which explains why no-one has been able to challenge the explosive conclusion with published data.

    Some of these issues are addressed here:


  267. Millette – Revised Progress Report of Results: MVA9119 Analysis of Red/Gray Chips in WTC Dust – 01 March 2012 [And this is the last we have heard from him]

    NIST contractor James Millette produced an unreviewed paper that purports to replicate the finding of nanothermite in the WTC dust. This was apparently organized in the hope that doing so would discredit all of the evidence for thermite at the WTC.

    Millette is well known for having helped create the official reports on the analysis of WTC dust. He was responsible for creating the form that was used to pre-screen all materials found in the dust prior to any analysis by official investigators. Those official reports did not mention any of the evidence listed above, in particular failing to report the abundant iron microspheres scattered throughout the WTC dust. Additionally, Millette’s official report team did not find any red-gray chips, let alone nanothermite.

    As he worked to debunk the WTC thermite research, Millette was still unable to find any iron microspheres. But he did claim to have finally found the red-gray chips. Curiously, he did not attempt to replicate the testing that would determine if those chips were thermitic.
