What do you want ME to do?

I read this the other day. It makes my blood boil. Particularly this part:
Israel cleverly tries to use worldwide Jewry to promote its policies. [And has cleverly succeeded.] Critics err by publicly pressuring Jewish communities to rally against Israel’s oppressive policies. [Which would be useful.] Pressuring in private has benefits, [which are...?????] but public demonstrations promote the concept that world Jewry is indirectly responsible for the oppression. [World Jewry does not want to be held responsible for the oppression, but they also don't want to come out and say so "in public."] The approach is counter-productive because it reinforces the belief of a close attachment of all Jews with Israel, arouses anti-Jewish sentiments and forces Jews to seek assistance from Israel. [How this "forces" Jews to seek assistance from Israel escapes me.] It is also cowardly because it transfers the responsibility to directly attack the institutions and persons supporting Israel’s policies from the critics to Jewish persons. [Who are presumably "not critics," and therefore, "not responsible." Well they are sort of critics, but you know, not *that* much. I mean, c'mon. What do you want? You want them to say something in public? Are you crazy?] It’s almost as if these detractors fear a backlash from Jewish institutions, tread softly when criticizing Israel and solicit others to perform their tasks. [It's "almost as if" these detractors think they will hear from the ADL or something.] Making others seem powerful reinforces their power. [You don't say.]
You know, I'm sorry, but I'm so fucking distraught after looking at pictures of dead Palestinian children that I don't really feel like explaining reality to this guy, so I'll keep it short.

The reality is that non-Jews who criticize Israel are labeled "anti-semitic." Hello???!!!????

That's why Jewish Americans a b s o l u t e l y have an obligation to speak up unequivocally about the atrocities and crimes committed by Israel. It IS your problem, whether you want it to be or not. Now is not the time to play dumb.

Here's more reality: you cannot enjoy all the benefits of the amazing Jewish-Israeli-American juggernaut and then whine that you're not responsible for the problems it creates. This entire country has been relentlessly browbeaten to support Israel. Thus, non-Jews will assume that Jewish Americans support Israel. So if you want people to know that you oppose Israel, you are going to have to say it clearly just like everybody else; and if you're afraid to speak up because Israel is out of control, welcome to our reality. Wash your hands of it because it's uncomfortable? Ha. No shit.


People who believe their own hype will come to a bad end

I'm not even going to link to anything here. Surely you have been around the block and witnessed the rending of garments over the situation in Palestine -- the rending of garments from Israel's supporters! They're so defensive. Nobody understands. The poor people of Sderot have to put up with unpredictable loud noises. They can't sit out on their patios in peace. !!

And so forth. Such hystrionics, while little children die in Gaza by the dozens.

Let's just cut through the bullshit. Israel is wrong. They are morally wrong. All the people busily debating the nuances of whose fault this is and the so-called peace process and everyone else's burden and role to solve this supposedly intractable problem -- blah blah blah -- it is all beside the point. Israel drags the situation out interminably because Israel does not want peace. Israel wants all of Palestine. Israel makes the problem intractable, on purpose. And since Israel has a captive worldwide corporate media megaphone, Israel can proceed to muddy the waters ad nauseam, which of course they do, to this very end. It's so helpful for them when everybody debates incessantly because it wastes time, and time works against the Palestinians, as it has now for over 60 years.

If Israel wanted peace, there would be peace. It is really as simple as that, because Israel always gets what Israel wants.

Look at the maps. The maps don't lie, only the people do. There is precious little the Palestinians can give up but their lives, at this point. And that seems to be just fine with Israel, because Israel does not want peace. Israel does not want to share the land with the Palestinians. Not after 60 years. Not ever.

Israel always gets what Israel wants. And everybody knows it. And they will continue to carve up the Palestinians until they have satisfactorily carved themselves clean out of the human race.

And then humanity will say, "I know you not."


A Few Observations

Israeli explanation for the attacks on Gaza defy rational thought. The web has erupted in full-blown outrage. Even the international community has seen fit to make some uncomfortable noises -- all quite diplomatic of course -- though Obama remains silent. "Vociferous" demonstrations have occurred at the Israeli embassy in London and New York, and also in France and Turkey. What? Didn't you see the coverage on teevee?? Conclusion: Some people can still think. Some people still care. Maybe many more people than you know. Would that give you hope? Well then you must never find out from the corporate media.

The Middle East situation can spiral out of control in various ways. Meanwhile, Pakistan is continually compromised. Come to find out that India made agreements with Iran back in January 2003 to use Iranian military bases "in the event of any outbreak of tensions with Pakistan." Just a thought...since Israel has infiltrated India -- made clear by the Mumbai attacks -- does this agreement give Israel a trojan horse opening to infiltrate Iranian military bases via India? Wouldn't it be convenient for Mossad to start something from inside an Iranian military base? What more could one ask for but a totally deniable false flag operation on one's arch enemy? Conclusion: Let us hope the Iranians have the matter well in hand.

Meanwhile, the Madoff scandal continues to percolate. A bankruptcy judge ordered the maximum compensation for "victims" capped at $100,000. This was reported on Christmas eve day. You were probably busy that day and missed it. This is a somewhat hopeful development. Related: Questions have arisen about the credibility of the author of The Madoff Double Bluff, Mohammed Rafiq. His piece first suggested (to my knowledge) the intriguing theory that Madoff admitted to fraud to prevent a process of discovery. It's all here. In addition, another item has been circulating from an alleged Swiss whistleblower which supports the double bluff theory. You can read that here.

For the record I have known Rafiq for 15/20 years. Mohammed Rafiq was a banker but is not a Jewish convert to Islam. In fact he was baptised at Winchester Cathedral when he was a kid.

Neither is he from a line of bankers. His father was an army man of the lower ranks.

Why would somebody want to discredit Mohammed Rafiq? Hmm? Was he too close to the truth? Conclusion: This is far from over.

Final conclusion: It's all connected. The wheels are coming off the bus in this period between the end of bush and the beginning of Obama. Qui bono?


There is a perfectly good explanation for all of this

On the heels of the Madoff scandal, which is challenging enough to spin, Israel now needs to be defended from the consequences of its own murderous behavior. In today's Sunday papers opinion pages across the country, I'm guessing you will find shrill letters blaming everything on the Palestinians. Here's one from the Boston Sunday Globe op ed page: http://tinyurl.com/8v4dw8
WHEN YOUSEF Munayyer ("Ignoring the plight in Gaza," Op-ed, Dec. 21) compares Hamas and the people of Gaza to the people in 1949 Berlin during the Soviet blockade, he stands history on its head. Berliners were not firing missiles on civilians in neighboring towns. They were not holding a kidnapped Russian soldier hostage for years. They were not smuggling in arms to launch terrorist attacks.

[Oopsie. We better not mention the doubts about who, exactly, fires all those rockets. Also, the political prisoners? Um...1 Israeli prisoner vs 10,756 Palestinians as of 3/07. And the weapons? The US is giving Israel $2.55B in military aid alone for 2009. The little rockets are no match for the awesome military might of Israel, paid for by the US taxpayer.]

That is the reality of Gaza. Collective punishment? Well, as Munayyer suggests, the Gazans overwhelmingly support Hamas's terrorist activities. They are reaping the consequences of their own choices. They are not simply innocent bystanders, like the neighboring Israelis who have seconds to react when a missile from Gaza is heading toward a residence or a school.

[Reality? The man cites nothing but lies. Hamas was democratically elected. Notice he does not deny the collective punishment. How could he? He justifies it because the Palestinians elected Hamas. In other words, in his mind they deserve to be collectively punished for displeasing the Israelis. They are not innocent bystanders, he says, like the neighboring Israelis. Racist much?]

Israel has shown time and again that is willing to negotiate peace with former enemies. It has done so with Egypt and Jordan. It has been attempting to do so with very limited success with the weak Palestinian Authority government in the West Bank. Hamas, however, can't bring itself to end its acts of terrorism, even during the truce that recently ended.

[Get real. The US pays Egypt to support our Middle East policies, which of course mean sucking up to Israel. Mubarak is a dictator, and he's been there for 25 years. He is loathed by the Egyptian people, and his government does not reflect their wishes. Nothing in the Middle East can be taken at face value because the US government meddles incessantly on Israel's behalf. So spare us the hagiography.]

If you weep for the people of Gaza, place the responsibility where it belongs: on the Hamas thugs who run it, and the people there who support them.

[Well we do weep. And we will continue to place responsibility exactly where it belongs: with the thugs who run Israel and the people who support them.]

But it doesn't stop there. We are also treated to a melodramatic apologia from a Rabbi about Madoff. http://tinyurl.com/8v4dw8
BERNARD MADOFF'S confessed Ponzi scheme assaults four core Jewish values.

Whom Can You Trust? In the wake of Madoff's profound violation of his ethical and fiduciary duties, can we trust anyone any longer?

[Meaning can Jews trust other Jews.]

Sustenance and Spirituality. A classic Jewish text teaches no sustenance, no spirituality. What will happen to all those good organizations, that did all those good works, whose funding has been decimated?

[Those organizations being Jewish charities.]

Desecrating God's Name. Madoff is a Jew. Jews are supposed to sanctify God's name, kiddush hashem. That is, a non-Jew is to see how a Jew behaves in the world, in the marketplace, and sees authenticity, integrity, compassion, and says: "Wow, there is something beautiful about Jewish truth." Madoff did just the opposite: not sanctification, but desecration.

[You see here a total disconnect from reality.]

Trashing the Jewish People's Name. Jews are supposed to be an or la'goyim, a light unto the nations. But in a time of massive demoralization, uncertainty, and collapse - fertile soil for the seeking of scapegoats - Madoff gives anti-Semitic blogs just what they need: the face of a Jewish financier who is indeed unreconstructed evil.

[Again, total disconnect from reality.]

He goes on to bring up the Talmud, of all things, recommending that the Jewish people study it. If you've never looked into the Talmud, it's quite an eye-popper. Click through for the many details.

Among other things, the Talmud teaches that harm must be done to the work of Christians.
Since the Goim minister to Jews like beasts of burden, belong to a Jew together with his life and all his faculties:

"The life of a Goi and all his physical powers belong to a Jew." (A. Rohl. Die Polem. p.20)

It is an axiom of the Rabbis that a Jew may take anything that belongs to Christians for any reason whatsoever, even by fraud; nor can such be called robbery since it is merely taking what belongs to him.

In Babha Bathra (54 b) it says:

"All things pertaining to the Goim are like a desert; the first person to come along and take them can claim them for his own."

And in a later passage, the Mossad motto makes an appearance:
In Zohar (I, 160a) it says:

"Rabbi Jehuda said to him [Rabbi Chezkia]: 'He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them. 'Rabbi Chezkia asked, 'How must we fight against them?' Rabbi Jehuda said, 'By wise counsel thou shalt war against them' (Proverbs, ch. 24, 6). By what kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must fight against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau - by deceit and trickery whenever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we should free ourselves from them and rule over them."

It would be very useful for people to understand the wide variety of brutal and unethical practices explicitly approved by the Talmud. When we say that someone like Michael Chertoff, for instance, is a Talmudic Jew, that means he has been formally instructed through religious indoctrination to lie to, deceive, steal from and kill non-Jews: approximately 97% of the population of the United States. Attorney General Mike Mukasey -- same thing. It's not like the difference between Episcopalians and Catholics; it's the difference between following a religion or following a secret plan for murderous racism.

Such a hideous secret kept for such a long time. But no more.


Mass murderers expect your support and understanding

"Israel expects the support and understanding of the international community as it confronts terror." - Tzipi Livni

Israeli air strikes in Gaza strip kill as many as 200 people

Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Israeli aircraft attacked police and security installations across the Gaza Strip, killing scores of people in the deadliest raid since the occupation of the coastal region ended in 2005, security and medical officials said.

As many as 200 people were killed and 750 injured, including women and children, Mu’awia Hassanien, a Palestinian medical-services official in Gaza, said today. Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, called the air strike a massacre and said it would retaliate. At least 30 rockets were fired from Gaza today, Israel Radio reported, killing a woman in Netivot.

Israel’s strikes started at 11:30 a.m. and in two minutes hit more than 30 targets, most of them security compounds run by Hamas, said an official of the movement who declined to be identified. They came after a week in which dozens of Qassam rockets were fired into Israel following the expiration Dec. 19 of a six-month cease-fire with Hamas.

“Israel expects the support and understanding of the international community as it confronts terror,” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said. The government ordered the strikes on Hamas only after it saw no other way to stop rocket attacks on its southern towns. The attack comes amid an election campaign in Israel, with the ballot scheduled for Feb. 10.

Cryptogon notes how the price of gold spiked ahead of this attack and links this to other similar events.

And let's talk about those rockets, the ones used to justify this attack. Here is Sarkozy, speaking presumably for the EU, citing them obliquely. The asshole Bush cites them directly:
President Nicholas Sarkozy of France, who holds the rotating European Union presidency, said he “firmly condemns the irresponsible provocations that have led to this situation, [the rockets] as well as the disproportionate use of force,” according to an e-mailed statement.

...In Washington, White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said in an e-mailed statement from President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, that “Hamas’s continued rocket attacks into Israel must cease if the violence is to stop.” He also urged “Israel to avoid civilian casualties as it targets Hamas in Gaza.”
The rockets get top billing. Oh and by the way, watch that disproportionate force and try to avoid the women and children, ok? please & thanks. Love, Nick and George. We support you, because we mass murderers gotta stick together.

Here are some questions about those rockets:
The picture published at the ORF website is credited to "MOHAMED SABER/EPA". Those are two first names and no family name. Who is this person? Why does he not present himself with a family name as any Arab would do? Does he exist at all or is he a fabrication?

The rockets depicted in that picture (and on the video) look more like the fancy bengalas which can be bought in many shops all over the world before festivities than any known weapon.

These so-called "rockets" appear to not have place for fuel or an engine, but they are supposed to fly 10-15Km? How do they accomplish this miracle?

How did ORF and other western media come into possession of this video which supposedly shows "Hamas fighters" shooting rockets from between fruit trees? Was it distributed by the Israeli embassy? Neither Austrian nor other western journalists are known to go to Gaza, so they can only have received them from the Israeli government, and that is what a link to exactly there from the ORF page suggests.

If the firing of these rockets from Gaza can be doubted, from where else could they have been fired? From within Israeli territory perhaps? Could it be that the firing of these rockets is a propaganda campaign implemented by the IDF in order to "justify" a long-planned massacre against the people of Gaza?

Could it be that the IDF is using the inhabitants of Sderot, Asqelon and other places around Gaza in order to construct a justification for genocide against a people who are already half hungered to death?

Why did nobody ask these questions before showing the clip at several European TV stations? If western media are not sloppy in their research and their checking of sources but still publish material which is obvious propaganda, is it possible to say that this irresponsible and less than professional attitude, the wholesale regurgitation of Israeli propaganda, is tantamount to complicity in the genocide against the Palestinian people?



Having an Epiphany

Doesn't it all get so depressing sometimes? We've all been there. Once you get that burning curiosity and start digging around on the web, you soon find out things that plunge you directly into despair. From then on it's a process of confirming, sorting, picking your jaw up off your lap, walking away in disgust, looking at your children with your heart in your throat, etc. etc. etc. Then you sit back down and do it all again. Some days you will laugh, and other days you will cry; but always you know this will surely end in prison camps for somebody.

To greatly oversimplify deeply convoluted things, the people causing the NWO problems worship dark forces. They participate in occult rituals. Evil really exists, and these people tap into it. These forces are unseen, yet they can be accessed and used by willing human beings. If you doubt this, please do some research. These people are not atheists. They believe in the unseen world and actively work against God. They despise the name of Jesus Christ and do everything possible to turn people away from him. And look what they've accomplished. What does that tell you?

Yes, God exists. Is he weak? No. It is we who are weak. It is we who deprive ourselves of his power and hand our wills over to the absolutely wrong people, even when we don't mean to. That is what happens when we succumb to despair. We literally play into their hands. Despair feeds into the very thing we struggle against. They want us to be afraid. They want us to be in despair. They want us to wallow in negativity and hopelessness. That's how they win. That's how they crush our spirits. Like everything else about the NWO, their main goal is to convince people to destroy and enslave and imprison themselves! Because certainly, they could never outnumber us.

This is an unseen battle of wits and will and faith. The resistance begins within. It begins when people stop thinking We're doomed. It begins when you get to the point where you say, in not so many words, eff these people. Who the hell do they think they are?

No. I do not accept this corruption. I do not accept their dominion. It is a lie. We deserve better. I believe that these corrupt people will fail. They will destroy each other, and then they will go to prison, where they surely belong. We will have peace on earth. I believe that good will prevail over evil.

And with that act of will, you have thrown your shoulder behind the unseen force of good. Notice that you don't have to figure out how, exactly, this will happen. You only need to believe that it will happen and do your own small part, whatever that may be.


Come Lord Jesus

O Magnum Mysterium, Thomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

O magnum mysterium et admirabile sacramentum ut animalia viderent Dominum natum jacentem in praesepio.

Beata virgo cujus viscera meruent partare Dominum Christum. Alleluia.

O great mystery and admirable sacrament that animals see the Lord born lying in a manger.

Blessed virgin whose womb was worthy to bear Lord Christ. Alleluia.

May the beauty, simplicity and mystery of Christ's birth be with you tonight.

Environmental Disaster in Tennessee

usxp has the story at AA News:
There was a huge and terrible environmental disaster in Tennessee yesterday.

The Tennessee Valley Authority, better known as TVA, has a coal-burning power plant located near Harriman, Tennessee, along Interstate 40 between Knoxville and Nashville. The stuff that is left over after TVA burns their coal is called coal ash.

Coal ash contains mercury and dangerous heavy metals like lead and arsenic - materials found naturally in coal are concentrated in the ash.

TVA has a huge mountain of this coal waste material stored in a gigantic pile next to their Harriman (Kingston) power plant, alongside a tributary of the Tennessee River.

On Monday morning Dec. 22 around 1:00 am, the earthen retaining wall around this mountain of coal ash failed and approximately 500 million gallons of nasty black coal ash flowed into tributaries of the Tennessee River - the water supply for Chattanooga TN and millions of people living downstream in Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.

This Tennessee TVA spill is over 40 times bigger than the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, if local news accounts are correct.
This engineering failure has a familiar ring.


How about a nice poke in the eye?

Remember the dueling banjos?

Today we have the Dueling Hegelian Dialectic. We have a real problem (fiat currency), and we need a real reaction, and a real solution. But in parallel, we have a manufactured problem with a timing issue (the bailouts), and a manufactured reaction (provoking people to riot at the appointed scapegoats), and a manufactured solution (Martial Law, new currency, etc.)

Apparently, in about eight weeks, all hell is going to break loose with the real problem: hyperinflation.

But for our overlords, everything has not quite been put into place to manage the problem of our fiat money system imploding, and that's why you have some messy problems like Bernie Madoff having to fall on his sword, and Hank Paulson looking all squirrely in public, and this unfortunate leadership vacuum between the merciful end of GWBush and the beginning of Obama. I really think this was all meant to hang together for just a few more months. It would have been much easier to manage -- for scapegoating purposes -- if Obama got in there before it all came unglued. It would have been nice and neat. The Republican bastards would take the blame, but they would be already gone so it wouldn't matter. But as it stands now, scapegoats are desperately needed in real time, and nobody has left the stage yet. Can we get a volunteer to be the bad guy so we can make our escape? C'mon....somebody?...Bernie?? Super. We love you, baby. Anyone else? We need a few more. We have several trillion dollars of shit to cover up, people. No joke. Come on...who's a team player?

So our overlords are focused on that timing issue. They have got to get everybody wrapped up in some big chocolate mess before the eight weeks are up, because when the problem of hyperinflation hits, there will be no more Mr. Nice Goys in America. And our overlords will have no place to hide. Therefore, somebody has got to be the scapegoat right now, and the bankers drew the short straw. Which is sort of fair, but not totally, as they did not do this all by themselves. They did it with the help of the corporate media and Congress, among others. But hey, those guys are not the designated scapegoats this time. No no no. Somebody has to direct the show.

Enter the REACTION PORTAL. You are getting very sleepy. Veeerrry sleeeepy. Now listen to me. It is time for you to outraged at bankers. Point all your rage at the bankers. Good. Soon you will riot in the streets, just like they did in Greece. Yessss. Veeerry goood. Listen to CNN. Listen to your Congresspeople. Yessss. They have your best interests at heart always. Always. Please riot so we can institute Martial Law. Yesss. We need you to be very upset and distracted now. Yessss. With bankers. Not with us. No No. Listen to us. Just be angry with the bankers. That's right. Goood.

Well, Peasant, shouldn't we be outraged at bankers? Oh yes. Most definitely. But hey, didn't our Congresspeople totally neglect to put strings into the legislation after the American people made it crystal clear that we didn't want any bailout in the first place? WHY is any of this a surprise?? It was very clear from the beginning that Congress had no intention of doing a thing to protect the taxpayers.
These assholes have supposedly worked it all out. So they say. (Does Henry Paulson look like a bloodsucking ghoul all the time?)

Behold the cornucopia of hedging language to describe this deal.

The plan calls for the Treasury Department to buy deeply distressed mortgage-backed securities and other bad debts held by banks and other investors. The money should help [or not help] troubled lenders make new loans and keep credit lines open. The government would later try [they will try, but they will fail] to sell the discounted loan packages at the best possible price.

At the insistence of House Republicans, some [unspecified amount] of the program's $700 billion would be devoted to a program that would encourage [as opposed to require] holders of distressed mortgage-backed securities to keep them and buy government insurance to cover defaults.

The legislation would place "reasonable" limits [as determined by the ultra-rich] on severance packages for executives of companies that benefit from the rescue plan, said a senior administration official who was authorized to speak only on background. It would affect fired executives of financial firms, and executives of firms that go bankrupt. Some [unspecified] of the provisions would be retroactive and some [unspecified] prospective, the official said.

And so forth. I don't even think it's necessary to speculate about the bribes paid into Caymen Island bank accounts that made this legislation possible.

And CNN. Let's talk about that little shop for a second. CNN, which lost the feed during a truthy rant. CNN, which neglected to report on the bailout protests. CNN, which played a role covering up events in Georgia (read the comments).

So what I'm trying to say is this: people really should cock an eyebrow at CNN's (or any other) breathless reports about how outraged you should be that the bankers screwed us. You already know that it's outrageous, don't you? Do you really need CNN to tell you that the bankers have destroyed the world economy? Wouldn't it have been much more helpful if CNN had done some fierce investigative reporting...you know...earlier?

And the same for Congress. Spare us the grave concern, you shameless people who have just given yourselves a raise over our dead bodies. I've never known a bunch of lawyers to make the lamest contracts possible for their clients, unless of course they pretend to work for the American people but in reality have been bought and paid for multiple times over by special interests.

All these people should just save their breath. And Americans should tuck their rage in for about eight more weeks and refuse to be baited and lured into some media-led reaction that is sure to make a nice getaway opportunity for the guilty parties. Just hold on for a while longer. Don't react to their little timing problems while they scurry off to count their money stashed away in offshore banks. When it's time to react, you will know. You don't need CNNABCCBSMSNBCFOX to tell you when your money becomes worthless. That's when it all stops. That's when everybody will turn their eyes together on the enemy within. I hope they shit their pants for a change.


Counter-psyops 101: Words Matter & We Need More Snark

"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 Cooke (source)
We all know that Dick Cheney and George Bush lie, but the fact remains that they got away with lying for a long time. Many people have written about and analyzed these lies, and that is all well and good. Yet the problem is not the lying so much as the getting away with it. And it really isn't that hard to innoculate oneself, so here's a little case study.

Words have emotional content. They have literal meanings, and they have connotations. Some words have blurry edges and others have sharp edges. The problem really rests with the way psychopathic people use words. They slip them into our minds like date-rape drugs, and many people have a limited defense against this, especially when it happens on tv where the words pass by so quickly. It's one of the main reasons why tv remains such a powerful and dangerous tool used against the American people. In most cases, you're better off reading what they say than watching them say it.

So here's an easy one to deconstruct (via PressTV): Cheney Clueless about Bin Laden
It's easy because we all know how much Dick Cheney lies, but you can take this little display of arrogance and extrapolate it out into literally thousands upon thousands of interactions for public consumption. They all do it the same way: they use words which are loaded with connotation or else vague with meaning, and you fill in the rest with your mind. You don't even know it's happening. That's why they call it psychological operations (psyops). You are manipulated to believe something other than reality.
US Vice President Dick Cheney says he cannot verify that Osama Bin Laden, the notorious leader of al-Qaeda terror network, is still alive.
cannot verify: Sounds crisp. Military. Precise. Mr. Cheney "cannot verify" this information because he has such great respect for the facts, and he would not want to mislead people or get them excited and then have to disappoint them later. Suuuure. In reality, he "cannot verify" this information because that would blow an important component of the War of Terror.
Cheney told Fox News on Sunday that he did not know whether Bin Laden was alive but "I'm guessing he is," the vice president said.
guessing: Guessing is so squidgy. It has built in plausible deniability. Could Dick have guessed that Bin Ladin is dead? Yes, he could do that (especially since it's true as he knows), but again, that would blow an important component of the War of Terror, so he must guess in the direction that suits his purposes.
"We've had certain pieces of evidence become available from time to time, there'll be a photograph released or something that allows the intelligence community to judge that he is still alive," he added.
passive voice: Here Dick puts himself right in your shoes, standing on the outside, as if he has hardly any inside knowledge whatsoever. That's right. He's just an innocent bystander, just taking what comes along from those wily terrorists, while sadly lacking the ultimate intelligence to solve this problem once and for all. You can imagine his frustration, no?

Look at his sentence again. It is a marvel of lying.

How do the pieces of evidence become "available from time to time"? Why indeed! Since Al Qaeda was created by the CIA, the pieces of "evidence" are always available. They come right out of the CIA psyops shop whenever it seems appropriate, also known as "from time to time"!! A "photograph" or "something" that "allows" the intelligence community "to judge" [don't you love it!] that their nemesis, Bin Laden, is still alive. !!! It couldn't be easier.
In the aftermath of 2001 September 11 terrorist attacks, US President George W. Bush declared he wanted Osama Bin Laden “dead or alive.” He vowed to kill or capture the mastermind behind the suicide attacks that hit the heart of the United States and left nearly 3,000 people killed.
serious vows: It's very important to vow the most serious things that you know will never happen, like capturing the terrorists on your payroll.
Bush stepped up the manhunt for Bin Laden earlier in the year, hoping to capture or kill him before handing the presidency over to Barack Obama.
stepping up: Same thing. You step up efforts only for things that you know will never happen, like "capturing" and "killing" long-dead terrorists that were on your payroll. It looks good for the folks watching at home.
With a bounty of USD 25m on his head, the 51-year-old Bin Laden has so far eluded his Americans pursuers.
bounty: What a rich word, evoking the Wild West. [Never] Gonna git 'em! Heh heh. It's perfect for George. And there's that worthy opponent, Bin Laden, "eluding" his "American pursuers." So rich in meaning.
Earlier in December, CIA Director Mike Hayden told a group of reporters this month that finding bin Laden and blocking terror attacks, remained the agency's main goal.

"I can assure you, although there has been press speculation to the contrary . . . that the hunt for bin Laden is very much at the top of the CIA's priority list," he said.
technical guru in charge: Oh yes. We now have Mr. Hayden "assuring" us that the "speculation" is erroneous. The "hunt" for Bin Laden is a "top" priority. Well of course!! We can never stop this phony hunt because finding Osama bin Laden would blow an important component of the War of Terror.

OK. Back to the headline: Cheney Clueless about Bin Laden. This story is from Press TV, which is an Iranian media source. The headline uses the word clueless -- a clear put-down. And yet the article itself conveys the psyops of Mr. Cheney, Mr. Bush and Mr. Hayden, essentially without pushback. In fact, that top sentence with the "cannot verify" almost legitimizes Dick's lies unless you read it as snark. The reader must understand. But do readers understand? Let us hope so. Because otherwise we have to ask ourselves why Press TV is putting out a story full of unchallenged psyops. And an interesting question too, that is, since people would never expect it from Press TV, the target of blacklist legislation this past summer. Well, that's the kind of thing that keeps it "fun" for those of us who give a shit.

Once you get the hang of this, it's mordant chuckles all day long. Now if we can just figure out how to get about 150 million people up to speed by next week, we should be all set.


Just like finding a $20 in your pocket

Totally unexpected...surprising him no end...practically inconceivable that it should turn out this way...blah blah blah
Kissinger also related that he has been struck by how much the move toward a new global order has been enhanced by the recent crises.

“The jihadist crisis is bringing it home to everybody, that international affairs cannot be conducted entirely by drawing borders and defining international politics by who crosses what borders with organized military force.” he said.

“This has now been reinforced by the financial crisis, which totally unexpectedly has spread around the world. It limits the resources that each country has for a foreign policy geared to an assertion of its own pure interests.”

Here he's been, advocating for a New World Order for decades now, and lookie here! This here financial crisis has spread around the whole world, in a "totally unexpected" manner, and that will help usher in the New World Order that Herr Kissinger has been working toward for decades! Go Figure!! What are the chances?!?

You know, these unfortunate crises like terrorism and global economic catastrophe? These are actually opportunities to fulfill the life's work of people like Henry Kissinger. And what is his life's work but instituting a New World Order? He says so himself.

Interviewer Charlie Rose, who has previously listened to Kissinger’s calls for a new world order, recognized the direction the conversation was taking and urged Kissinger to elaborate:

“When you talk about a new structure, I’m not sure, you’ve used the term new world order, what is it? Is it simply a world order that is defined by new interest and new mutuality of interest?” Rose asked.

“That’s certainly how you have to start. I know the view that you start by converting the whole world to our political philosophy. I don’t think that can be done in one or two terms of an administration. That is an historic process that has its own rhythm.” Kissinger replied.

"Our" meaning the people who have been running the world into the ground for the past half a century and who have by now transferred unimaginable sums of money into their own pockets.

And you are to believe that the current catastrophes keeping you awake at night are simply unfortunate but golden opportunities to convert the whole world to the international elites' political philosophy. It just all happens by chance actually. Weird, huh?

The Fallout

Yes. The Fallout. This Madoff situation is a tragedy, see?, like a nuclear bomb went off. And don't you forget it. People are being hurt. (No not you.)

If you enjoy a little schadenfreude, well, that's ok. The people in charge would actually really like to take the temperature on that anyway, you know, see where the people are at. Have they got you to a boiling point yet? Not quite? Hey, they're fiddling with the knobs now.

This Madoff scandal represents such a magnificent opportunity for psyops. The intelligence people must be rubbing their hands together as they "craft" their "narrative." Got to be careful, though.

Head on over and watch the latest sitcom masterpiece from MSNBC at Huffington Post.

Here's the canned audience reaction (that would be YOU):
The Poor Jewish Victims. (again)
The Money Is ALL GONE. (don't ask where it went wink wink wink.)
Now They Can't Help the Gifted Children. And There Are So Many. (sniff and fill many tissues)
But Failure Is Not An Option. !! (clutch heart in wonder, bite lip like Bill Clinton)
Aren't They Just...The Scrappiest? (be really impressed now)
It's a Good Thing That US Taxpayers Will Bail Out These Jewish Charities in Israel, Since Madoff Committed Fraud on His Own People! (shake head sadly)
It's Just So Unbelievable.
Yes. Yes it is. I was just thinking the very same thing.

Now if it's true that Madoff sent the money to Israel and these charities know it, well that might elicit a different kind of fallout.


Bernie Madoff: The Scooter Libby of 2008

Yesterday turned up this little curiosity about Madoff. Let's just see what it might mean.

As more info comes in regarding the Madeoff scheme, news from several sources
say that Madeoff and his clients were the largest bank account holders listed
on a computer disk leaked by a Swiss bank worker regarding US persons with
hidden Swiss bank accounts.
A whistleblower. And you may recall that pressure has increased on Swiss banks to ditch some of their notorious secrecy rules because they facilitate tax evasion and corruption. So it makes sense that a whistleblower might come forward about now, as the game is changing anyway.

As the IRS approached him regarding the repayment of taxes from his hidden
swiss account, Madeoff reportedly became admamant that his wealth would not be
taxed by the US. He also realized that once the swiss records were exposed
that his and his client's wealth were also within reach of seizure or
judgement by a US court regarding past frauds of him or his clients.

Realizing that he was be certain to arrested on other securities and market
making fraud issues in the near future, insiders say that it was at this point
he made the decision to just say it was all lost in trading and move it
directly to Israel. Insiders also report that he was ready to pay the taxes on
the money in Israel but was adamant that taxes in the US would not be paid nor
would any of the money be available for US court judgements in subprime,
fraudlent trading and misrepresentation charges in the future.

So Madoff is adamant not to pay US taxes, but he is ok with paying taxes in Israel. He sounds like a Talmudic Jew.

Sources say that most of his and his clients wealth were gained through
issuing subprime mortgages to unqualified borrowers and then tranching the
mortgages into CDOs and circulating the CDOs among US pension funds including
GM, GE, IBM and Califorina's State pension fund. Some of the wealth was also
gotten through investments in Vegas housing sub divisions and Miami condo
projects at the height of the real estate bubble.

Finally, sources say that the wealth from Madeoff's has been fully transfered
to Israel and that "most if not all of the clients have been made aware" that
their money is available to them in Israel and that it was felt that this was
a necessary measure in protecting certain high level clients in the face of a
collapse of the USA.

They're all set. That's all that counts. The rest of the article confirms this point. Madoff and his investors show utter contempt for the citizens of the US.

But that is not what we hear on psyops tv. No. By all accounts Madoff is something like 'the nicest guy in the world.' Yes. Well, maybe in his own little world that's true. We can all afford to be nice when we have mountains of stolen money at our disposal and no worries of being caught.

And naturally, a judge stepped in right away to help all the poor wealthy victims of Madoff's "fraud." That's right. We can't have any wealthy investors or their pet money laundering causes losing any of their dollars. That's what you are for, American Citizen: to keep rich people whole.

And all Madoff has to do is plead guilty to "fraud," and everyone is happy in the end. Except you, but you don't count, Bubba. That's why Madoff is "the nicest guy in the world," see? He's the Scooter Libby of 2008 -- taking one for the team. A real hero, that Madoff.
So why plead guilty? The answer is simple. Look on the net and you will see that because this case is being labelled a fraud, it would appear that investors are going to be able to claim their investment back under the US government's financial fraud protection scheme. A judge has already given his approval in principle for compensation, w ithout any evidence having been presented and financial fraud being demonstrated in a court of law. And it would appear that there will never be such a demonstration in a court of law. Why? It would appear that all the funds financial records are mostly "missing" (rather like Dov Zakheim's US$1.4tn) and those few records that do survive are in a terrible mess.

However, since the guy has pleaded guilty we do not need to demonstrate the fraud, because he says he is guilty.

And look further on the net and you will see that these "victims" have also been told by the US tax authorities that they will probably also be entitled to claim back some taxes on these defrauded sums.

Rather than saying this hedge fund has gone bust, due to its choice of investment assets and investment methologies, a scenario which is highly probable in the current financial paradigm, since all the professionals are predicting that at least 30% of all hedge funds are about to fail, more than 700 of them, the CEO chooses to fess up to fraud. If the CEO admits the fund has gone bust, then all those wealthy members of the Jewish community get nothing, but if the CEO admits to fraud they get their money back as compensation from the US tax payer, just as they are also drawing money back from the tax payers with the other hand.

And, as can be seen at the Daily Mail link above, the investors in this fund only get to litigate the fund directors against Lloyds insurers in London for even more compensation. Done properly the compensation could end up paying out far more than the original fund returns (yes this is sarcasm, it was bound to creep in eventually in yet another swindle like this).


Use What You Have

George Washington has a post up about the riot meme being spread by the very people who, one would think, don't want people to riot.

Smart readers understand the Hegelian dialectic: problem-reaction-solution.
Funny - this coming from the IMF, which collection of bankers is directly responsible for creating the problem. Notice a pattern here?

It sounds to me like they're preparing us for the solution to the problem they caused which will probably take the form of a "one-world" currency, or better yet, all of our wealth could be encoded on a chip and implanted under our skin. That marvelous idea will put an end to all crime.

Don't buy it. Small communities can print their own currency and trade it for goods and services, and everyone should be growing food. We don't need any more of their "solutions."
Read about the Hegelian dialectic. Understand it, because this is the primary tool used to make the NWO agenda possible. Once the American people understand this, it's game over for the globalists. Time is of the essence.

Branching into theology for a second, I have many times cited M. Scott Peck and his book, People of the Lie. Evil people do not understand love. They understand it only as a crude handle by which to manipulate normal people. In other words, they understand it in a mechanical way. But of course, this falls far short of understanding and experiencing the power and nuances of love in its many forms.

Right now they are conducting an obscene, in-our-faces brazen financial theft, so over-the-top in its diabolical greed that they fully expect and hope we will rise up out of our multiple poisoned induced stupors to riot against them, thereby justifying dumping their further abuse on our heads. Since we've been largely inured to their longstanding abuse, however, they have to send out the occasional satrap like Strauss-Kahn to make a provocative statement. I guess we're a little dense.

So here is their plan in a nutshell:
Problem: Unprecedented, outrageous financial fraud undertaken with complete impunity.
Reaction: Justified rage, disintegrating into riots, helped along by agents provocateurs in the streets and through the media.
Solution: Martial Law, new currency, NWO agenda, etc.

If that financial problem doesn't get you to do "the right thing," they most certainly have plans B and C, which can range from "terrorist" attacks to "natural" disasters. They will do whatever it takes, and they have the technology, the money, and the power to carry it through.

I don't know exactly where that leave the rest of us, but you always have the power of your attention. Don't give it to them. You have the power of your emotions. Don't give it to them. You have the power of your creativity. Don't give it to them. Respond and react from a place of love, to the best of your ability. They cannot predict the things people will do out of love because love is like a mysterious foreign language to them. Be an expert on the one thing they just don't quite get.

For instance, check this out.


Are we ever going to wake up and die right in this country?

More information comes out all the time about the real crimes being committed in our names as Americans. I know people know, but do we really know? Do we really appreciate the horror of pain and suffering inflicted on innocent people in our names? This morning was one of those mornings when I just can't take it reading things like this:
"We were walking, I was holding my grandson's hand, then there was a loud noise and everything went white. When I opened my eyes, everybody was screaming. I was lying metres from where I had been, I was still holding my grandson's hand but the rest of him was gone. I looked around and saw pieces of bodies everywhere. I couldn't make out which part was which."
How can any human being go on? Think about some of the petty things people turn into tragedies in this country, and yet our weapons routinely inflict this unspeakable suffering on innocent people. We're fighting wars and killing people because of 9/11, a crime premeditated and carried out by the intelligence world. It's beyond sick what's going on and how long it has been going on, and how many innocent people have suffered grievously because of it. All this ridiculous nonsense about trials for the "masterminds" and the "terrorists" behind these attacks. Spare us. The intelligence world plans these attacks. They are the masterminds and the terrorists. Everything else is an elaborate show for the benefit of people who refuse to get real.

When it is going to end? I just want to know before I lose my mind.

But then, I refuse to lose my mind. What good would that do? Sanity means devotion to reality at all costs. So I can't lose my mind. I must preserve it and guard it as I lay my heart on the altar instead. I must suffer the agony of knowing, of understanding, that our country is doing these horrible things to innocent people, and especially to children, as I try to imagine their agony. In a runaway corrupt world, can we make that sacrifice? Can we stop telling ourselves lies that make us feel good? Can we stop offering our minds to evil men who wish to control our thoughts? Can we more jealously guard our minds from liars while sacrificing our hearts freely to God instead?

There is a destiny that makes us brothers: None goes his way alone.
All that we send into the lives of others, comes back into our own. - Edwin Markham


It's not for nothing that they do these things

A few months back I stumbled across this site which explains the meaning of gold fringe and other decorations on American flags. Guess what? They don't belong on the flag except under special circumstances.
Martial Law Flag "Pursuant to 4 U.S.C. chapter 1, §§1, 2, & 3; Executive Order 10834, August 21, 1959; 24 F.R.6865; a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE border on three sides. The President of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the military. The placing of a fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag and the arrangement of the stars in the union are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but are within the discretion of the President as Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy." 34 Ops. Atty. Gen. 83.

President, Dwight David Eisenhower, by Executive Order No.10834, signed on August 21, 1959 and printed in the Federal Register at 24 F.R. 6865, pursuant to law, stated that: "A military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a yellow fringe border on three sides."
(Second photo of Stephen Hadley, December 2007.)

You can go read it and judge for yourself. According to the Executive Order, these matters rest within the (tremendous and ever expanding) purview of the President as Commander in Chief. And we all know how much George has loved being Commander in Chief. I think he enjoys every single trapping of power, and he probably really gets his rocks off standing in front of fringed and tasseled flags with spread eagle finials, especially knowing that the meaning is lost on most people. Talk about getting away with bloody murder...

So, have we been under Martial Law for years, as many suspect? Has the evidence been in our faces this whole time? Would George Bush love that kind of brazen smackdown?

Dates and symbols and secret codes hold meaning to the underworld. While it may seem flaky and ridiculous to normal people who obviously have more important things to worry about, tuning it all out deprives us of important clues. Remember when Tommy Lee Jones picked up the tabloids in Men in Black to find out what was going on? There's some truth to that. We are dealing with whack-jobs.

So I have been intrigued to notice the flags since Obama's election.

On his third press conference (11/25/08), the flags sported no fringe or tassels. I don't know about the finials. At the recent appearance with Al Gore, the flags do have fringe but no tassels, and the display does not call attention to the fringe.

In contrast, the last picture was taken sometime before his election.

Hopefully what we're seeing is a transition back to a constitutional government, but we're not there yet. Nevertheless, it's always a good thing when they know that we know about their secret handshakes and dog whistles and all that kooky stuff. If they want to deny that the fringe means anything, well, fine. Take it off then. Either it means something or it doesn't. If it doesn't, remove it. What's the big deal?

You tell me.


You're Getting Warmer

This is a little weird. Are they playing that party game when you blindfold the person who's 'it' and make them grope around the room for some mysterious object while giving them hints like warmer and cooler?
It's quite unsettling to talk to members of Barack Obama's transition teams these days, especially those who are helping with the economics portfolio. Without going into details, the sense I get from them is that they are very worried that the economy will get a lot worse before it gets better. [WARMER] Not just worse... a lot worse. [WARMER] As in -- double digit unemployment without the wiggle factors. Huge declines in aggregate demand. Significant, persistent deficits. [DEFINITELY WARMER] That's one reason why the Obama administration seems to be open to listening to every economist with an idea and is stocking the staff with the leading lights of the field. In one sense, the general level of concern among Obama advisers and transition staffers is reassuring; they get the magnitude of the problems, and they're not going to assume that, just because the bottom has never dropped out before -- certainly not in the lifetimes of most people doing policy these days, the bottom will never drop out. [VERY VERY WARM]

Where the discussion isn't going, at least in public, (or the PR level), is the possibility that the first foreign policy crisis the administration will face will be the complete economic collapse of a large, unstable nation. [GETTING HOT NOW -- SO CLOSE!! WHICH COUNTRY WILL IT BE!?!?!?! CAN YOU FIGURE IT OUT?!?!?!? IT'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!!!] {Blindfolded player takes sharp U-turn.} To be sure, Pakistan is nearly broke, and U.S. policy makers seem to be aware of that; but a worldwide demand crisis could lead to social unrest in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, Singapore, the Ukraine, Japan, Turkey or Egypt (which is facing an internal political crisis of epic proportions already). [COOLER] The U.S. won't have the resources to, say, engineer the rescue of the peso again, or intervene in Asia as in 1997. [MUCH COOLER]

The public rhetoric from Team Obama seems to treat history as having ended in early October, [WARMER, YES] which is understandable; the priority right now is on the liquidity crisis, the structure of government and the peopling of the administration and the domestic economy. [WARMER] Most of the administration's major policy voices don't have the luxury of time to game out scenarios. Now -- it can fairly be said that Treasury nominee Tim Geithner, himself an assistant secretary for international economic affairs during the Clinton administration, is aware of the precarious state demand in certain critical countries, [MUCH WARMER!] as is Larry Summers. The question: what's the administration's policy in this area? [VERY WARM AGAIN] {Another U-turn.} Which countries can we afford to let fail? Which unstable states would concern us the most? Is there something the U.S. can do, in advance, should do, in advance, to forestall the collapse of other economies? [COOLER]
Well...how about we forestall the collapse of OUR economy? I bet that would help.


Why even bother watching these clowns?

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Luke 6:41

1. The auto bailout -- a proposed loan, by the way -- represents about 2% of the money given to banks with absolutely no strings attached. See American Goy for details. Are the auto companies worthy of some disdain? Yes. But is the ratio of disdain proportionate, given that the banks have destroyed the entire world economy and successfully threatened us into giving them what is now estimated at $3.92 Trillion (with a T), no strings attached? No.

2. Blagojevitch. He's stupid. He's corrupt. And don't we all know it. But how does he compare to the Bush/Cheney team, eh? Has he started any illegal wars of choice resulting in over a million deaths? No, I didn't think so. And yet, George Bush is still around, having survived eight years of a murderous presidency, during which time he has presided over mind-boggling levels of corruption. Did he ever get indicted? Is the ratio of disdain heaped on Blagojevitch proportionate to his crimes, with Lincoln rolling over in his grave and all, in light of the cesspool of corruption our government has long become? No.

All thanks to the corporate media for beholding motes and perceiving not beams.


Keep your wits about you at all times

Important information here about events in Canada:

Harper's "Civil Assistance Plan" documented by the Centre for Research on Globalization, under the SPP-NAU agenda, gives the right of the U.S. military to unilaterally cross into Canada for whatever cover story. This unconstitutionally reached "Executive Agreement" that was made sometime in February 2008, is apparently only the tip of the treasonous iceberg.

Did you also know apparently, that under "NORTHCOM", Canada's military is now under U.S. Presidential Executive Control?

Presumably, the Canadian military can also cross into the US if they are all under Bush's control.

We don't know what our globalists have in mind, but we know they have something in mind. We can expect it to be a very unpleasant surprise meant to beat the American people down, physically but especially psychologically. In order for Americans to accept the globalist agenda, the entire system must be shredded and crushed and destroyed beyond recognition. We must feel utterly hopeless. We must look to the leaders for help. We must be reduced to a shadow of our former selves, and then, as we meekly offer whatever little scraps of dignity and freedom we yet possess, they will deign to grant us so-called security.

Is that how you treat people you love? No. That's why these disasters must always be blamed on terrorists, or natural disasters, or some particular scapegoats who can be safely thrown under the bus. Shoving normal people into certain waiting arms and getting away with it is the life's work of many a fancy-pants think-tank smarm-peddler.
In the West, typically, the smartest students study humanities and social sciences, and the think-tanks as well as the Pentagon are populated with scores of PhDs in political science and history. What do you think they do there? What do you think they do at the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations, and the Carnegie Endowment for Peace? How about at CFR and RIIA? They are united in one common global agenda – world government. And they get there by shrewdly employing the overarching political science concept articulated by David Ben Gurion “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”!
It's nothing but torture on a vast psychological scale. Plunge people into raging seas of despair, then toss them a life preserver, attached to a rope, of course. Then just pull 'em in, gasping and choking and terrified.

The Christmas Spirit

As you probably know, an important editorial came out this week.
So there you have it - one of the world’s top newspapers, editorially led by chief economics commentator Martin Wolf, a top Bilderberg luminary, openly proclaiming that not only is world government the agenda, but that world government will only be achieved through dictatorial measures because the majority of the people are dead against it.

Will we still be called paranoid conspiracy theorists for warning that a system of dictatorial world government is being set up, even as one of the world’s most influential newspapers admits to the fact? Or will people finally wake up and accept that there is a globalist agenda to destroy sovereignty, any form of real democracy, and freedom itself in the pursuit of an all-powerful, self-interested, centralized, unrepresentative and dictatorial world government?
Oh, pshaw, they will say. Don't you want peace on earth, good will toward men? C'mon.

Again, let us be clear. I very much desire all good things for our planet. I love peace, but I also love justice. I used to be young once, and naive. I remember sitting in a college classroom as we discussed the military industrial complex, and Eisenhower's warnings on leaving office, and thinking that of course we should have corporations in full cooperation with the government. Precisely because I am a person of good will, and because I was young, I did not yet imagine what could go wrong. Well, that was a long time ago. But sadly today, many full grown Americans yet fail to imagine what could go wrong, and this despite the fact that it all already has! In spades. One thousand percent. If only they would notice.

Clinical psychopaths are the problem. Secret societies are the problem. People who lie with extreme facility are the problem. The halls of power around the world are full to bursting with these very people! They will lie and lie and lie until they get what they want. And they have nearly achieved their darkest goals: the institution of a world government from which to terrorize, oppress and rape the planet and all beings on it for their own gain.

Let me assure you. If we randomly went around the world and pulled one thousand working people off the streets, representing every country, and locked them in a room until they came up with a world government system, you would most assuredly get something workable. But the powers that be would never, ever, in a thousand years NO! submit to such a thing. Their horror at the very idea would be endless. The whole point, and the only reason they want this New World Order, is to ensure their supremacy over the whole of humanity. They want to bake it in. They alone want to design this new world order. They alone want to run it. They alone want to control it. And that is the only way they will agree it -- if we do it their way. Because a true new world order, springing as it were from the working people of the world, would be just. And justice is pure anathema to the ruling class.

What are their goals? Here's a list compiled indirectly from the work of the late Anthony C. Sutton.

1. Modify education to adjust people's beliefs and expectations from an early age.
2. Control the money supply.
3. Use the law to enforce to advance the state agenda.
4. Manipulate both sides of politics.
5. Control the economy to allow for the concentration of wealth.
6. Rewrite history to favor the elite.
7. Control people's thoughts through psychology.
8. Turn philanthropy into a vulgar display of wealth.
9. Control medicine.
10. Corrupt religion and encourage the occult.
11. Control the media.*
12. Appoint only the elite to positions of power.

I suggest to you that they have basically completed this checklist, with the small exception of the internet. Troublesome, that one. It might require some rough handling to get the internet under control, hmm? All those pesky people poking around in corners where they have no business, uncovering things kept secret for decades and tossing all this blood- and shit-stained dirty laundry all over the place? Do you think that goes up their asses? I guess so. It makes the time tables slip and forces them to cut corners and rush things through before all the Ts are crossed.

What percentage of Americans really understand the danger? Five percent? While many more understand we have Serious Problems, only a small percentage actually possess a mental framework of how those problems relate back to the New World Order agenda. When these busy people hear talk of peace, solving problems, working together, etc., they will want to 'go for it' because they are overwhelmingly normal people of good will who yet fail to imagine that this could be a giant trap.

But of course it is a trap. Setting traps is all these people know how to do. It is their core competency.

Do you want a New World Order? Fine. Let's start here off the top of my head. No Illuminati. No Secret Societies. No dual nationals in government. No Skull and Bones. No Opus Dei. No Chabad Lubavitch. No CIA. No Mossad. No KGB. No ISI. No Al Qaeda. No Federal Reserve. No fiat money. No Goldman Sachs. No Morgan Stanley. No JP Morgan. No Deutche Bank. No Citibank. No big banks of any kind. No Title 18, Section 6 corporations. Undo every single executive order made by GW Bush. No illegal drugs. No nukes. No chemtrails. Immediate trials and prison for all the presently known criminals like Bush 41, Bush 43, Clinton, Blair, Cheney, Paulson, Olmert, Rumsfeld, et cetera ad nauseum. Open every fucking file cabinet on every fucking computer in OUR fucking government so we can find the rest and put them on trial and in prison. Pay restitution for your crimes against humanity. Where's all the money you people stole? Fork it over. It belongs to us now.

What? You don't like that deal? Well I guess we have no deal then. You must not be serious about peace on earth good will toward men.



Greek rioters have been focused on attacking wealth and prestige: banks, cars, buildings. Did I mention banks? The situation there is pretty grim, and strangely familiar...

New Democracy made lofty promises of reform to win re-election after the Greek wildfires in 2007, but voters have only seen scandal after scandal with hundreds of millions of taxpayer euros being wasted, an increase in violent crime, and a system of law and order that makes it impossible to get justice. It is a maladministration that allows convicted parliamentarians, terrorists, rapists and murderers to go unpunished for years and decades, yet sanctions police to raid and close down Stanleybet UK in a mere seven days for daring to compete with a €7bn monopoly in which the Greek state holds a 34.4% share. It is a government that does not protect, serve or even respect its people. This is a government out for itself, and the people respond accordingly by dodging taxes, refusing to pay social insurance, polluting the environment, flouting the law, paying bribes, coveting public sector jobs, and doing what they please without punishment.

Government and media are quick to label anyone daring to take to the streets in angry protest as "far-left, self-styled anarchists", although these youths are more likely thugs, hoodlums and bored rich kids who subscribe to the same mob mentality found at football games and wouldn't know the definition of anarchy. And when things get out of hand or an innocent dies, the government is quick to pass on blame to subordinates – in this case, two police officers who serve it. A minister tenders resignation, but no one implements real measures or takes ultimate responsibility for the discontent and hopelessness that sparked these and other violent riots in the first place. In short, the Greek state is incapable of controlling rioters with the same corrupt policies and lax enforcement that created them.

Irish Bulletin reports further on the common thread of banking:
Torching banks? Clashes near Parliament? Attacking diplomatic vehicles? Yesterday, I heard that ten banks had been attacked, and it seems strange that all of this is happening solely over last Saturday's shooting. Indeed, it is a perfect pretext for the Greek authorities and the media - not to mention their counterparts over here - who fear that their cosy relationship with the international clique of banking criminals may result in them hanging from shiny lamp-posts from Washington to Dublin to Sydney.
Oh. Indeed. Long story, but it has recently come to light that some very huge quantities of stolen money has been parked in Greece for the past two years.
This diversion had been orchestrated by the corrupt former President Clinton’s main mole inside Citibank/Citigroup, one Robert Rubin, the former US Treasury Secretary, who authored a prominent article published in the Wall Street Journal dated 29th November, the theme of which was ‘It’s not my fault’. [The Editor calls the habit that these people routinely adopt of protesting too much when cornered, ‘Blankfeinism’, after the display of supreme arrogance by Paulson’s successor as CEO at Goldman Sachs, Mr Blankfein, who boasted in the summer of 2007 about how well his institution had been doing, when of course it had been engaged in dodgy financial manipulations as exposed inter alia by this service].

Confirmation that the original $4.5 trillion funds were diverted by Robert Rubin from Citibank to an account or accounts located in Athens, and that the funds had been so diverted for perhaps two + years, was obtained by this service between 11.30pm and midnight on Wednesday 26th November 2008. For their part, certain Greek parties could not understand what on earth was going on, with some concluding that the Americans had gone completely mad. Whether the transactions were in any way facilitated by John Negroponte, of Greek Jewish extraction, and /or by Olga Sarantopoulos, is not known at this juncture.

It may also be recalled that in the late fall of 2007, the Treasurer of the United States, Ms. Anna Escobedo Cabral, held a meeting with Robert Rubin at Citibank, which she was reported to have left in a seriously discontented frame of mind. It was even rumoured that Ms. Cabral had indicated that she would not stand for this endless corruption any longer, would do her best to procure the Settlements, and would then resign. What the US Treasurer is believed to have found out during that meeting was that certain missing funds had been diverted to Athens.

Reverberations from this and related scandals were still roiling Citibank/Citigroup, one of the CIA’s favoured 'helpful' institutions, as late as mid-November 2008. On the 13th November, the institution issued the following brief statement:

‘The Board of Directors of Citigroup Inc. today reiterated its full support for the company’s chairman, Sir Win Bischoff, and said it looks forward to its continued leadership. This morning’s Wall Street Journal report to the contrary is completely erroneous’.

The ‘erroneous’ report had referenced allegations that senior Citigroup staff members had been unhappy with Sir Win’s oversight of Chief Executive Vikram Pandit and his management team, and had suggested that Dick Parsons, the bank’s senior independent director, was possibly being lined up to replace Sir Win Bischoff, who was parachuted into Citibank in part to serve inter alia as the guardian of The Queen’s loan funds with the bank.

But in translation, it can be seen that the pressure on Robert Rubin will have been intense, and that a belated rearguard action may have been mounted to ‘rid the bank’ of HM The Queen’s de facto representative and of the influence of MI6 in procuring the necessary overdue resolution of the Settlements dimension of this vast crisis, without collapsing Citibank and causing thereby a worldwide depression (the ‘ace’ that Robert Rubin has of course been cynically playing). On 21st November, Rubin was STILL reported, as noted, to have tried hard to block the Settlements.
People rioting in the streets, disgusted with greedy and corrupt officials who have wasted their money and brought nothing but scandal after scandal? You don't say. Maybe that's why Hank Paulson looks like a hunted, beady eyed rodent out in public. He probably expects someone to rush him with a pitchfork at any moment, or maybe have a bolt of lightning come down and turn him into stubble.

Problems at the Carnival

The CSIS report on cyber security has hit the ground running. We have problems, people. Serious, serious problems. Just ask CNN. Every day our national security gets compromised by cyber criminals, foreign intelligence operatives, and who knows who else.


Yes, my friends. Woe. Woe! Obama must do something right away, like appoint a Cyber Czar and spend taxpayer money creating a new agency. STAT! It's an e m e r g e n c y.
The 96-page "Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency" report was made public at the start of the week and offers numerous ideas and recommendations for government officials who are growing more concerned about the possibility of cyberwarfare.

"The United States must treat cybersecurity as one of the most important national security challenges it faces," according to the report. It adds that the current Bush administration's Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative "good but not sufficient" and the use of computers as attack tools creates "a strategic issue on par with weapons of mass destruction and global jihad."

Furthermore, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has not been able to properly secure U.S. government computers from cyber attacks, and should no longer have the responsibility. DHS isn't suited to handle technology issues, as the agency uses "archaic" methods that cannot keep up with new attacks.

At least five members of Obama's transition team helped contribute to the report, and his staff is eager to see how they can better protect the United States from cyber attacks.

DHS will likely be strengthened once Obama takes office, but even so, it's not recommended the agency continue to have the lead in cyber security, as it "is not the agency to lead in a conflict with foreign intelligence agencies or militaries, or even well organized international cyber criminals."

In an ideal scenario, the new office would combine the Joint Inter-Agency Cyber Task Force and DHS National Center for Cybersecurity while recruiting cyber security experts to help create new levels of defense.
Now, just a small sampling of CSIS board of trustees members include some familiar names like Dick Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bill Frist, Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft. This is clearly an arm of the octopus. These people know full well that our government has long since been infiltrated by foreign operatives, aka their friends and colleagues. They know full well that they at best ignored the problem they so shrilly wave their arms about today, now that it has grown massively out of control. They know that DHS, under the dual national Michael Chertoff, never had any intention of protection US national security. This is just Hegelian problem-reaction-solution stuff.

Anyone who seriously wants to help this country can start by weeding out all the dual nationals and foreign operatives who brazenly work to destroy America. And I would suggest that's not about to happen, unfortunately, much as I would wish otherwise.

By polluting and compromising our national interest, our so called leaders have truly made a mess of the whole world; since no country can operate safely in an environment where other nations' interests and motives remain hidden and entwined, unless of course they spy. Yes, spying has always existed, but securely lashing the US national interest to Israel's has resulted in an escalation of security breaches because it destabilizes our position vis a vis the rest of the world. We must be like dealing with Sybil. And this has been going on for years and years, but now, all of a sudden, surprising us no end, practically inconceivable, you are to consider that it is an emergency that our security has been compromised. Yes! No shit! Thanks for the tip! And you can just imagine what sorts of fixes they have in mind, which of course will need to be rammed through as quickly as possible a la the Patriot Act, especially if we suffer some kind of terrorist attack, as has been forecast, and during which the ride will probably not withstand the tremendous spin forces.

Meanwhile, we're just going to keep going around and around on this carnival ride until somebody down there throws some sand in the gear box or sticks a banana in the exhaust or tackles the operator, or something. God help us.
