Helping children to love Satan, one skateboard at a time. Collect them all.

Many people snicker at the idea that the Illuminati use numerology and symbols like ferris wheels. It strikes most people as silly, and they don't want to waste time on silliness because they are too busy working their asses off to make ends meet.

But the fact is we all use symbols and see symbols every day. Corporate logos, texting shortcuts (brb, lol, etc.), yellow ribbon magnets, pink ribbon magnets, inside jokes, nicknames, team logos, crosses, stars, flags, colors. We are literally immersed in symbols. Symbols decorate the walls, floors and ceilings of the matrix. The issue comes in the awareness we bring to their use. We tune most of them out because they have become so ubiquitous as to be background noise. We tune into the ones we like, the ones we think are "cool."

This process, or training if you will, begins at a very young age. If you have school aged children, you may know about a toy called Tech Decks, little skateboards. Children find these toys "cool," despite the fact, or maybe because of the fact, that they sport satanic designs. Go to techdeck.com and look for yourself. Little skateboards with satanic designs. That's it. That's the product. You could say Tech Decks are literally little vehicles useful for training young children to like satanic designs. And maybe they improve fine motor skills or some such bullshit, too, but that would be an ancillary marketing feature for sure. These toys feed off of and into a youth culture that glorifies evil in a lighthearted way, suitable for children. Evil Light. Decaf Evil. Charmed, I'm sure.

The parent company, Spin Master, Ltd. was founded by three Canadians, Anton Rabie, Ronnen Harary, and Ben Varadi. http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/Spin-Master-Ltd-Company-History.html
The origins of Spin Master date to 1994, when three young Canadians began marketing a novelty gift item called Earth Buddy. Ronnen Harary and Anton Rabie, both born in South Africa, had been friends since they attended summer camp together as children, and Rabie had gotten to know Ben Varadi while all three were students at the University of Western Ontario. Rabie and Harary had run a poster business in college, and after graduation began seeking a new type of product to sell. They found it in a gift Harary's grandmother had brought back from Israel, which consisted of a nylon stocking with a face drawn on it that was filled with sawdust and grass seed. When watered, it sprouted green "hair" on top. Deciding to market it in Canada, the pair took $10,000 of their savings to make 5,000 copies to sell as gifts for Mother's Day, 1994. On Rabie's suggestion, Varadi was brought in to oversee manufacturing.
Boy it's amazing. These guys hit the big time. Lucky lucky lucky. They make something called a Devil Stick, an idea "inspired" by an activity commonly seen at Grateful Dead concerts, hook up with some British investors named John Dixon and Peter Manning, and now they have made tons of money selling, among other things, toy skateboards covered with satanic images. No doubt they live in the lap of luxury for providing this service.

Actually, B'nai Brith has an article extolling their virtues, religious ethics, and business acumen. A nice little puff piece for the boyishly charming, charismatic, dynamic, intelligent and funny wunderkinder. You see kids, their success comes because they follow the Talmud. Duh. http://www.bnaibrith.ca/article.php?id=397
The Talmud has influenced the way three thirty-something Jewish men, founders of Spin Master Toys, the ninth largest toy company in North America, conduct business. On the evening of April 27 at Toronto’s Holy Blossom Temple, Ronnen Harary and Ben Varadirega led the audience with tales of toys, entrepreneurship and Judaism. Anton Rabie, president of the company, was, unfortunately, called away on business. Harary, the suave young CEO of Israeli origin, explained how the Talmud is their source for business ethics. In making decisions with regards to customers, suppliers, products and employees, Harary and his partners use the first question asked after death as their guideline: “Did you conduct your business affairs ethically?”
How do you meet the ethical threshold? Simple. You sell products that people find cool. Pasting satanic images on toys for school-aged children? No problem.

The sad thing is that people don't even see this low-hanging fruit hanging off the evil tree. We're not talking subtle symbols, yet people will make excuses and brush off this as marketing, and therefore acceptable. It's just some pictures. It doesn't mean anything. They will then turn around and pay $70 for a $20 sweatshirt just because it has the official Red Sox insignia on it.
Then they'll say, what do you want, hearts and flowers and butterflies? Hey, guess what. The Illuminati has their tentacles into hearts and flowers and butterflies, too. That stuff is even worse, and I will get to it.


Outcrazying the Crazies

The Samson Option is a term used to describe Israel’s alleged deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a “last resort” against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence, and possibly against other targets as well. Israel refuses to admit it has nuclear weapons or describe how it would use them, an official policy of nuclear ambiguity, also known as "nuclear opacity." This has made it difficult for anyone outside the Israeli government to definitively describe its true nuclear policy, while still allowing Israel to influence the perceptions, strategies and actions of other governments.
The butcher, Ariel Sharon, expressed the Samson Option (before it was called such) as his personal philosophy in 1982:
"I personally don't want to be any better than Khomeini or Brezhnev or Ghadafi or Assad or Mrs. Thatcher, or even Harry Truman who killed half a million Japanese with two fine bombs. I only want to be smarter than they are, quicker and more efficient, not better or more beautiful than they are. Tell me, do the baddies of this world have a bad time? If anyone tries to touch them, the evil men cut his hands and legs off. They hunt and catch whatever they feel like eating. They don't suffer from indigestion and are not punished by Heaven. I want Israel to join that club. Maybe the world will then at last begin to fear me instead of feeling sorry for me. Maybe they will start to tremble, to fear my madness instead of admiring my nobility. Thank God for that. Let them tremble, let them call us a mad state. Let them understand that we are a wild country, dangerous to our surroundings, not normal, that we might go crazy if one of our children is murdered - just one! That we might go wild and burn all the oil fields in the Middle East! If anything would happen to your child, God forbid, you would talk like I do. Let them be aware in Washington, Moscow, Damascus and China that if one of our ambassadors is shot, or even a consul or the most junior embassy official, we might start World War Three just like that!"
Yoo hoo...krazy kat...Ok he's now a vegetable but there are others, like Bibi Dearest.
"We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq," Ma'ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events "swung American public opinion in our favor."
It's no secret that Israel has nuclear weapons, and lots of them, and that Israel would like to start a war with Iran because Israel wants to maintain world hegemony. However, Israel needs to control it's military arm, meaning the US military, and so far that has not been a problem either thanks to organized Jewry wielding massive, disproportionate control over the media and financial industries, the end result being that our political system has become completely subservient to Jewish interests, which are not the same as American interests. That's how we got into Iraq, and that's how Israel would like to get us into Iran.

So it's getting interesting with North Korea, because acting crazy is one thing when Israel does it as a calculated tactic while controlling massive American resources and public opinion, and it's quite another thing when crazy Kim Jong-il does it. He might ruin everything with getting the war on Iran on. It's like he's cutting in the lunch line.

On the one hand, this trouble with North Korea could remove some obstacles to starting a war with Iran, because if diplomacy fails in Pyongyang, that will be used as an excuse not to bother with diplomacy in Tehran. That opens the door to a military conflict, which Israel desperately wants as long as the US military takes the losses. But on the other hand, North Korea could tie up the US military first. And if the US military is not available to fight Israel's desired war with Iran, that sort of leaves the job to Israelis and possibly calls the Samson Option bluff, because you know someone will get hurt. And as crazy Ariel Sharon said back in 1982, it only takes ONE to set them off.

Here's a rather hysterical Israeli opinion-maker claiming that WW III has already started.

One needs to be deaf, blind, and an idiot at this time in order not to understand that the nuclear bomb tested in North Korea two days ago also exploded in the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem.

The North Koreans blatantly disregarded the Americans and publicly presented them as a meaningless power, yet officials in Jerusalem are still reciting the “Road Map” and making note of the evacuation of some minor West Bank outpost. The world is changing before our eyes, yet here we see Knesset members earnestly explaining that the Americans will agree that we stay in Judea and Samaria if we only evacuate some tin shacks.

Do you see how upset he is that the North Koreans insulted the Americans? It's almost like the Israelis feel personally insulted. Hmm. Either the Israelis are just being our really good friends, OR, the Israelis run America and the insult is actually directed at them. A commenter to this Press TV story left this remark: "Strength to the DPRK! Keep up your artillery and strike any blows necessary. Death to any zionist puppets who dare to intimdate you. Your a very honorable man Kim Jong Il." Mmm hmm. Crazy Mr. Kim is standing up to the bullies.

Back to Israeli opinion...

Two days ago, in North Korea, World War III officially got underway – the war that would pit “crazy” states such as North Korea and Iran, for example, against states we shall characterize as “moderate,” including Egypt, Gulf states, and Saudi Arabia, which at this time leads the Arab initiative for peace with Israel.

Ever since Sunday, the world has gone crazy, and this crazy world is monitoring with horror the struggle between the “moderate” and “crazy” states. The problem is that some of those crazy states – Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea [note the quick addition of Pakistan from one paragraph to the next - ed.] – already have, or will have, a nuclear button to push, while the moderates, headed by the United States, are not eager to rush into battle.

Why? Because America is already entangled in wars, [for Israel - ed.] and there was someone who recently won the presidential elections there, among other reasons because he pledged to remove US troops from the Iraqi and Afghani quagmire. That same president promised that we shall live in a world free of nuclear weapons. Remember that?

This is the same North Korea that spat in America’s face three years ago, and this week it did it again. Based on the reactions in Washington (unless they are part of a deception campaign,) it doesn’t appear that the great America will respond. Now all we need is for Iran to blatantly disregard America and Israel in order to prompt us to slide into real emergency turmoil (as opposed to the drill planned for the coming days.)

Iran is here already. There is a direct and intimate link between the Korean bomb and the planned Iranian bomb; between Iran’s and North Korea’s spit in America’s face, Washington’s desire and ability to lead the fight against the crazy world, and the Israeli government’s conduct.

One does not need to be a supporter or rival of the settlement enterprise in the territories to understand this Gordian knot – and the question is whether we want the American sword to undo it for us.

If the answer is positive, we need to be familiar with the Americans to realize that three tin huts removed from the Maoz Ester outpost are not good enough.

It seems to me that man is not confident in Bibi and Avigdor's ability to finesse the diplomacy enough to control the American sword (the US military), presuming it is even available. Army Chief of Staff General Casey met with an unnamed think tank (AEI? JINSA? Heritage Foundation???) on Thursday and stated that it would take 90 days to shift gears in case of a military confrontation with North Korea. That's kind of a long time, and if in the middle of that the US military has to turn around and redeploy people to Iran...well, something would just have to give. And by that time more people will have died, and meanwhile the economy is collapsing. The old lies might just not work anymore. That's Israel's problem.


The Worry

1999: She intimated that things would not play out the way "they" planned, and that the war [WWIII against Iran] would spin out of all control.

2009: Bilderberg fears losing control in chaos-plagued world

Investigative journalist Daniel Estulin, whose information from inside Bilderberg has routinely proven accurate, states that the global elite’s plan to completely destroy the economy and ultimately lower global population by two thirds has stoked fears even within Bilderberg itself that the fallout from such chaos could ultimately result in the globalists losing their control over the world.

In a telephone interview, Estulin re-iterated his original points about Bilderberg’s 2009 agenda, which were released in a pre-meeting booklet to members. These include the notion that investors, whipped up into a false state of euphoria by the belief that the economy is recovering, are being suckered into ploughing their money back into the system as a set up for “massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead” as the stock market reverses its uptrend and plummets to new lows.

But this all has to be finessed or they could get into something called "demand destruction," which means that they killed the goose that lays the golden eggs, and the geese that remain have rabies and shotguns.

Tucker said that Bilderberg are keen on stressing the problems caused by the economic crisis, as well as the threat of a disease pandemic, as a means of justifying centralization of power.

According to Tucker, Bildt also discussed global warming in the context of a global tax on carbon emissions, which has long been a part of Bilderberg’s agenda.

...Tucker confirmed the information first released by Daniel Estulin, that Bilderberg were discussing whether to sink the economy quickly or drag on a long agonizing depression. “Treasury Secretary Geithner and Carl Bildt touted a shorter recession not a 10-year recession….partly because a 10 year recession would damage Bilderberg industrialists themselves, as much as they want to have a global department of labor and a global department of treasury, they still like making money and such a long recession would cost them big bucks industrially because nobody is buying their toys….the tilt is towards keeping it short,” said Tucker.

Tucker concluded by noting that Bilderberg members seemed grim faced at this year’s meeting and that geopolitically, “Things are going bad for them, Americans are responding, Europeans are responding, and their program is being blocked.”

By the way, these are all the people Obama sent to Bilderberg to find out the plan, lest anyone suggest he is somehow out of the loop:
The Obama administration was heavily represented at this years Bilderberg meeting. Among the attendees were Keith B. Alexander, a Lieutenant General of U.S. Army and Director of the National Security Agency, the massive spying agency of the United States; Timothy Geithner, US Treasury Secretary and former President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Richard Holbrooke, the Obama administration's special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan; General James Jones, United States National Security Advisor; Henry Kissinger, Obama's special envoy to Russia, longtime Bilderberg member and former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor; Dennis Ross, special advisor for the Persian Gulf and Southwest Asia to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; David Petraeus, Commander of CENTCOM, (U.S. Central Command, in the Middle East), Lawrence Summers, Director of the White House's National Economic Council, former Treasury Secretary in the Clinton administration, former President of Harvard University, former Chief Economist of the World Bank; Paul Volcker, former Governor of the Federal Reserve System and Chair of Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board; Robert Zoellick, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and current President of the World Bank;[30] and Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg.[31]
So Obama's job is to keep the American people subdued with lies. This is the exact same job that Bush had, except Obama does it 'better' from the perspective of his bosses.
12/17/2007: "This economy is pretty good. There's definitely some storm clouds and concerns, but the underpinning is good, and we'll work our way through this period." President Bush

5/28/2009: "When you look at the economy right now I think it's safe to say that we have stepped back from the brink, that there is some calm that didn't exist before." President Obama
Oh Really?


A country run by psychopaths, for psychopaths

My God, only in America. Only in American can psychopaths get fluffed like this.
In retrospect, it appears that Paulson was not the callous titan of Wall Street, but rather an earnest, sometimes bewildered man caught in a whirlwind he could not tame or even fully understand. He did the best he could, reaching, sometimes lurching for answers, but in the end he was rescued by the sort of nerdy professor type who might have been devoured on the trading floors of Wall Street. To the extent that there was a hero during those weeks, it was arguably Ben Bernanke, the quiet, shy chairman of the Federal Reserve, whose problem-solving and salesmanship before a skeptical Congress were critical to avoiding financial disaster.

...Yet Paulson can be oddly inarticulate for such a powerful man. He is not a Wall Street smoothie: no trophy wife (he remains married to his college sweetheart), and at Goldman he was known for wearing penny loafers, not handmade Italian shoes. He's an avid bird watcher. A nonsmoking, nondrinking Christian Scientist, he did not head for the Hamptons on the weekend but visited his mother in Barrington, Ill. Yet, physically imposing, radiating a confident forcefulness, he came to stand for the dominating Goldman brand. In the Wall Street hierarchy, Goldman is the smartest and most confident of them all: the firm makes bets, but only ones it feels sure to win.
You see kids, we got it all wrong about these guys. These guys, Ben and Hank, they are the Nicest Guys EVAH, ok? Quiet. Shy. In over their heads. Visiting their mommas and staying loyal to their high school sweethearts.

Look at that face. How can you not feel sorry for him, going through life with a snake eye? Poor thing.
[Regarding a different psychopath...] Notice the transition from arrogant bullying and braggadocio...to abject begging. In my experience, sociopaths are both shameless and prideless – whatever works is their credo. Prideless begging is simply the manipulation he thinks the situation calls for (while bullying was the manipulation called for in other situations). [Like when forcing the Bailout down our throats back in September. - Ed.]
Righto. And if you can get Newsweek to help you, well, then more power to you man. I mean, this is AMERICA.


Lucky Charms

More on these....

They are winged human headed bulls, a symbol offering protection (via magical powers) against enemies. They were sculpted during the reign of Sargon II to guard one of the gates of his palace, which was excavated (1843, 1928-35) in present day Khorsabad, Iraq, near Mosul.

This information is from the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago:
Khorsabad takes its name from a modern Iraqi village that stands on the ruins of an ancient city called Dur-Sharrukin. Dur-Sharrukin ("Fort Sargon") was constructed as a new capital city by the Assyrian king Sargon II shortly after he came to the throne in 721 B.C. The city had not been completed when Sargon died in 705 B.C. His son and successor, Sennacherib, moved the capital to the old established city of Nineveh, about 15 miles to the south, and Dur-Sharrukin appears to have been largely abandoned.

...Early in April of 1929, workmen excavating outside what would later prove to be the throne room of King Sargon II uncovered fragments of a colossal human-headed winged bull. The sculpture had fallen face downward onto the pavement, had then been covered with the debris of the falling building, and was thus perfectly preserved, although broken into a number of pieces. The expedition's field director, Edward Chiera, [newly appointed to the University of Chicago] was uncertain what to do with this new discovery and immediately cabled Breasted:
  • Breasted promptly cabled Chiera to ask for the piece during the division and to make all necessary arrangements to transport the bull to Chicago, even though he had no money in his budget with which to foot the bill. Pierre Delougaz was placed in charge of the transportation, which proved to be an extremely arduous task.

    So the bull went to Chicago, but it seems that it now resides at the Louvre. The antiquities found at Khorsabad went to the following museums: the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad (looted), the Oriental Institute Museum in Chicago, the Louvre in Paris, and the British Museum in London.

    Sargon II was one of the first to use numerology in construction.
    "Numerology, the science, is based on the understanding that each number has an inherent vibration which provides the key to greater self awareness. This ' vibrational quality ' of each number originated before an alphabet was created! When sounds were originated, they were originally assigned a number as a way of counting - eventually this numbering system was used by the Babylonians: King Sargon II, who ruled Babylonia in the 8th Century BC used the numerical value of his name to determine the length of a wall in the city. Hebrews applied this method to one of their first alphabets. Through this way of applying sound and number they were able to determine that by adding the numeric values of letters and words together they could create values that equaled the 'vibration' or 'quality' of the actual letter or word that was being spoken. This method was eventually named Gematria: "a system for discovering the true and hidden meaning of words, using numbers and letters of the alphabet. The numerical values of the letters of words are added together, and then interpreted according to other words with the same numerical values", from Harper's Encyclopedia of Mystical and Paranormal Experience."
    Note: Solomon building?

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

    Here is a diagram of the Palace of Sargon at Khorsabad. The lucky charms were at one of the gates, but I don't know which one.

    Here's some history about Sargon II:
    Sargon II (721-705 BC) was an Assyrian King. He took the throne from Shalmanassar V in 722. It is not sure if he was the son of Tiglatpilesar III or an usurper unrelated to the Royal family. In his inscriptions, he styles himself as a new man, rarely referring to his predecessors, and he took the name 'Sharru-kinu', true king, after Sargon of Akkad, a mighty king who had been found in a wicker basket, a child of a temple prostitute and an unknown father. Sargon is the name given by the bible. Beset by difficulties at the beginning of his rule, Sargon made a pact with the Chaldean Marduk-apla-iddin. He freed all temples, as well as the inhabitants of the towns of Assur and Haran from taxes.


    Sargon plundered the fertile lands at the southern and western shore of Lake Urmia, felling orchards and burning the harvest. In the Royal resort of Ulhu the wine-cellar of the Urartian kings were plundered, wine was scooped up like water. The Assyrian host then plundered Sangibuti and marched north to Van without meeting resistance, the people having retreated to their castles or fled into the mountains, having been warned by fire-signals. Sargon claims to have destroyed 430 empty villages. After reaching lake Van, Sargon left Urartu via Uaiaish. In Hubushkia he received the tribute of Nairi. While most of the army returned to Assyria, Sargon went on to sack the Urartian the temple of the god Haldi and his wife Bagbartu at Musasir (Ardini). The loot must have been impressive, its description takes up 50 columns in the letter to Assur.


    Energy Extraction

    From the Matthew Delooze Website, describing his visit to Paris and the Louvre:

    Caption under this picture:

    I realised that all the artifacts in the museum were actually set around the pyramid that was located outside.

    Hmm. That looks like the same antiquity on the cover of Mr. Cumo's book. (As you may recall, Mr. Cuno is president and director of the Art Institute of Chicago.)

    Things started to get interesting for me and I suddenly had flashbacks in my mind of walking down the Champs-Élysées in a straight line towards the pyramid from the Arch de Triomphe, past the obelisk, past the Hexagon shaped pond, past the Ferris wheel and past the Arc de Carousel and into the Pyramid. I immediately felt drained. What the hell is going on here I thought. I was in a spiritual daze. Like I was pissed (drunk). (No I hadn't touched a bloody drop and at 8 Euro a pint I wasn't able to.)

    Yes I had indeed walked part way along an invisible energy line but I somehow knew that the monuments were just as important as the actual invisible energy 'line'. I realised in my daze that the 'creators' of the monuments were actually feeding from energy that was being created by the visitors, and the mass thoughts of others, and the energy was somehow being passed through the monuments and they, the creators of the monuments, somehow had exclusive rights to the energy they had extracted.

    I realised that 'They' are syphoning off energy because 'We' automatically adore or simply accept the monuments as being idols deserving respect.

    'Just like we drink a milkshake through a straw they suck energy through the monuments'. 'The more symbolic the monument the bigger the size of milkshake' comes to my mind. Do you know what I mean? Lets go a little deeper while we can eh? Don't worry most of the plastic sheeple of the spiritual communities will have long left this article by now, so there is only us serious folk left to trigger our inner memories within. So please come with me...

    Thousands of humans beings are being led into the pyramid at the Louvre but its not for their own benefit in my opinion. Far from it. The fact that the Louvre is full of ancient symbolic monuments, that literally surround the pyramid, only confirmed my thoughts that spiritual energy extraction is taking place.
    Note the language describing the architectural exhibits at Millennium Park in Chicago.

    Some people know how to celebrate an anniversary

    They build things.

    From The Matthew Delooze Website:

    The Ferris wheel was also created for the World Fair in Chicago (1893). It appears to me that the secret societies actually arranged the layouts of the symbolic buildings and symbolic monuments that were used at all World Fairs and the World's Columbian Exposition (another name for the Chicago World's Fair) is no exception. Indeed a bloke named Daniel Hudson Burnham played a big part in the Chicago Exhibition. I don't want to drone on about him, and you can click on his name to know more about him, so I will just say that he built this. (pictured on left, the Masonic Temple Building in Chicago)

    Again I have researched World Fairs and please believe me when I say that the trouser leg lifting Freemasons and other sun worshipping liars and conmen had their crafty fingers involved in all of them. 100%. They literally used them to built replica temples and occult monuments and then literally placed them right under the noses of the unknowing sheeple. Just like the Atomium and the Eiffel Tower were in the Brussels and Paris 'World Fairs' respectively, simply has an excuse to build them without any serious questions asked.

    I will also say the world fairs were massive events and had the same hypnotic powers as the main stream TV has today. Yes they really were that big an event. It is time to wake up folks or the bastards are going to grind you to dust. Sadly some of you are already salt pot filling material.

    Anyway lets move on. We now know the Ferris wheel was created in Chicago by George Washington Gale Ferris Junior after he was selected by Freemason Daniel Burnham to do so. Another fact (or coincidence) is that the Ferris wheel was not only created by a symbolic founding father of the USA 'George Washington' Gale Ferris. It was also created to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of another secret society member Christopher Columbus and also celebrate, wait for it, the 'New World'.

    Indeed the Ferris wheel is totally laden with symbolism that is linked to the illuminate and the Serpent Cult. It literally is an obelisk, a benben stone (pyramid), an all seeing eye, the Sun and an acknowledgement of famous secret society members all rolled together in one monument.

    I tell you the truth, there is enormous symbolism behind the Ferris wheel and the secret rulers of this world have tricked you for at least a century about its symbolism and its true meaning. The Ferris wheel is literally a very powerful symbolic Sun God monument and it is literally being hidden right under our noses and I believe you would be a fool if you under-estimated its true symbolic meaning and therefore under-estimate its true spiritual power. Again your state education will kick in here and get you to fob the information off.

    (Pictured: the current ferris wheel at Navy Pier in Chicago)

    September 13, 2008
    A bigger Navy Pier Ferris wheel? Let's get the wheels of creativity turning

    A giant Ferris wheel at Navy Pier?

    Why not? The Ferris wheel was invented in Chicago at the world's fair of 1893, and there's no reason, as pier officials say, that the city can't contribute a new creative chapter to the Ferris wheel tradition.

    But it would be better still if the new wheel gets the wheels of creativity turning about the future of the entire pier.

    Ever since a Canadian firm's lackluster plan for reinventing the pier was shot down a few years ago, the 3,000 -foot-long lakefront attraction has languished in an urban design netherworld. Chicago architects including Helmut Jahn, Dirk Lohan and Laurence Booth were invited by pier officials to brainstorm its future. But nothing ever came of those meetings.

    So the proposed Ferris wheel, which would be at least 300 feet tall (twice as high as the current model), begs the question: Will the new wheel be an isolated, one-shot deal aimed at juicing up interest in the pier or will it form the iconic image of a comprehensive reinvention?

    If pier officials answer that question in the right way, they could have a new Millennium Park on their hands. And if they answer the wrong way, they may get the hot new tourist attraction they're after, but they'll blow an opportunity to uplift the public realm.


    You're getting very sleepy

    Verbatim from these pages celebrating the Plan of Chicago...www.burnhamplan100.com...

    "Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die."

    Architectural exhibits in Millennium Park designed by London-based Zaha Hadid and Amsterdam-based Ben van Berkel of UNStudio emphasize the importance of boldly imagining a better future for all. Both are intended to echo the audacity of the 1909 Burnham Plan, which proclaimed, “What we as a people decide to do in the public interest we can and surely will bring to pass.”

    Zaha Hadid’s pavilion is a tent-like structure made of light weight aluminum and dressed in a tensile fabric. The exterior skin rises and falls along its aluminum ribs—the lines for which were derived from the diagonal lines and avenues in Burnham and Bennett’s 1909 Plan. Louvers in the pavilion’s ceiling will bring an interplay of light and shadow into the space as the sun changes position during the day. Exterior lighting will highlight the pavilion at night.

    The interior of the Hadid Pavilion will serve as a screen for an immersive video installation created by UIC-trained and London-based artist Thomas Gray for The Gray Circle. This film will tell the story of Chicago’s transformation, including visions for Chicago’s future by local architects. The pavilion envelops visitors in its sinuous form, but the addition of Gray’s film leads to an even more engaging experience. This pavilion and video exhibition will inspire public discourse about the history and future of Chicago.

    The aluminum structure for this fabric pavilion was donated by Marmon/Keystone Corporation, a member of The Marmon Group of companies. The Pavilion can be dismantled and re-installed in another location.

    The sculptural UNStudio pavilion is highly accessible and functions as an urban activator. Framed by Lake Michigan on one side and Michigan Avenue on the other, it relates to diverse city-contexts and scales. The edges of the roof are parallel, but toward the center there is more complexity in the form.

    At night, UNStudio’s pavilion becomes a responsive architecture with LED lights that change color and pattern. These lights will be in constant flux as the number of visitors to the pavilion changes. Programmatically the pavilion invites people to gather, walk around and through the space—to explore and observe. It’s sculptural form and reactive lights will spark curiosity and wonder in its visitors.

    The UNStudio pavilion is made of steel, clad in plywood, and is covered in high-gloss white paint to reflect the city and pavilion visitors. It will be built of steel donated by Chicago-based ArcelorMittal, and after October 31 will be de-constructed and recycled.

    One almost doesn't know what to say. Shall people walk around inside a snake like form and be programmed, or shall they walk around in a state of curiosity and wonder and pretty lights and be programmed and activated? Hmm. Tough decision.

    For more information on creepy architecture, see here.


    This is the logo for the Burnham Plan Centennial.

    Daniel Burnham designed the plan for Chicago. The actual centennial anniversary of this plan is on July 4, 2009.

    When I saw the logo, it immediately made me think of this crop circle reported in early May 2009, particularly the part on the far right end of this picture.

    Here's some analysis of this glyph by Clif High at halfpasthuman.com.

    I'm sure that's just a total coincidence that the bottom section of this glyph and the Burnham logo have an eerie similarity, right?

    Two nested circles and a big arc touching a smaller circle.

    I have two circles for you, and they go like this: o_O

    A Hue and Cry

    Hue and cry, from Wikipedia (links removed):

    In common law, a hue and cry (Latin, hutesium et clamor, "a horn and shouting") is a process by which bystanders are summoned to assist in the apprehension of a criminal who has been witnessed in the act of committing a crime. By the statute of Winchester, 13 Edw. I cc. 1 and 4, (1285) it was provided that anyone, either a constable or a private citizen, who witnessed a crime shall make hue and cry, and that the hue and cry must be kept up against the fleeing criminal from town to town and from county to county, until the felon is apprehended and delivered to the sheriff. All able-bodied men, upon hearing the shouts, were obliged to assist in the pursuit of the criminal, which makes it comparable to the posse comitatus. It was moreover provided that a hundred that failed to give pursuit on the hue and cry would become liable in case of any theft or robbery. Those who raised a hue and cry falsely were themselves guilty of a crime.

    In contemporary terms, the hue and cry is also used figuratively to describe the behavior of the news media, seeking a scapegoat for some complex public calamity or instigating moral panics.
    Can you imagine the hue and cry that would ensue if, for example, some terrorist incident destroyed an iconic American painting like, let's just say for shits and giggles, American Gothic?

    Let's pause here for a moment and imagine that. Think about Charlie Gibson and Brian Ross with their sad eyes, shaking their heads sadly, regrettably, as they report the World News Tonight. Think of Diane Sawyer, her face all magically blurred into wrinkle-free perfection on high def teevee, and think of all the talking heads who deliver "the news." Imagine the graphics and the crawl and the music for their next terrorist production extravaganza.

    You might need some tissues.

    OK, nevermind. It turns out that the American Gothic painting "lives" at the Art Institute of Chicago. It's totally safe in a beautiful and famous building designed by Daniel Burnham, in a museum under the direction of a Mr. James Cuno. There is NOTHING to worry about. Mr. Cumo has even written books about antiquity.

    {Hmm. That's an interesting book cover. Ancient Egyptian art guarded by machine gun toting white guys in black uniforms...can't quite make out the patches but they look like private security.}


    Cuno argues that nationalistic retention and reclamation policies impede common access to this common heritage and encourage a dubious and dangerous politicization of antiquities--and of culture itself. Antiquities need to be protected from looting but also from nationalistic identity politics. [which are bad, see?] To do this, Cuno calls for measures to broaden rather than restrict international access to antiquities. He advocates restoration of the system under which source countries would share newly discovered artifacts in exchange for archaeological help, and he argues that museums should again be allowed reasonable ways to acquire undocumented antiquities. The first extended defense of the side of museums in the struggle over antiquities, Who Owns Antiquity? is sure to be as important as it is controversial.

    "...an illuminating...book."--Edward Rothstein, New York Times
    Oh indeed, Edward (winkedy wink wink wink).

    "It would be a mistake to see this deeply felt and carefully reasoned argument as self-serving. [or maybe not a mistake] The crux of his argument is that modern nation-states [which are bad bad bad] have at best a tenuous connection with the ancient cultures in question, and their interests are political rather than scientific...Cuno advocates instead a universal, humanistic approach [kind of like a new world order approach] to the world's shared cultural treasures...Cuno's pleas for a more expansive approach to cultural artifacts must be taken seriously."--Publishers Weekly

    "The author's message is that stewardship [ie: control], not ownership, is what matters. Trade in antiquities should be dictated not by politics, but by the demands of conservation, knowledge, and access. The argument presented here is thought-provoking. Cuno may be over-optimistic. But you can't help feeling that he is right."--Financial Times [Go ahead, just try and help yourself from feeling that he is right. You can do it because he is wrong.]

    Stay tuned. There could be something to worry about after all.


    The Hail Mary Pass

    The Illuminati hide their plans in the open by going big and long -- grand plans executed over many years. They use buildings and structures. They use symbols and numbers and dates. A lot of it is out in the open. That way if you ever point anything out they can scoff and brush it off and call you a paranoid conspiracy kook. Also, they use the good energy people innocently put into things that the Illuminati control, like ancient artifacts in museums for instance.

    I offer the following posts for your consideration, jumping off from the ten year old American Gothic prophecy I stumbled across and posted about yesterday.

    American Gothic Prediction from January 2006

    I just stumbled across this while looking into the Sy Hersh/Dick Cheney/Benazir Bhutto story. Click through for the details. (Cross-posted at AA News.)

    In July of 1999, the woman with whom I was romantically involved at that time -- call her Gabrielle -- woke up, woke me up, and announced that she had just had an exceptionally vivid dream. A prophetic dream.

    A dream in which airplanes flew into the World Trade Center -- "or buildings like the World Trade Center."


    Naturally, I wanted to know who would commit such an act. "It won't be who they say it is," she answered.

    She mentioned that there would be a war in Iraq as a result, even though Iraq would not be responsible. (She also mentioned Saudi Arabia, but the reference was quite vague. I could not discern how that country figured into this scenario.)


    Before continuing, I should fill in some more backstory.

    In the mid-1990s, before she met me, Gabrielle had had a series of troubling dreams depicting a "small" nuclear explosion in Chicago. In each dream, she viewed the event from a closer perspective. In one dream, she saw it from the point of view of a reporter flying in a commercial airliner not far from the event.

    Naturally, I wanted to know if the New York event was connected with the nuclear event in Chicago. Yes, she said. In a way. But the explosion in Chicago would happen later.


    Would the same people be responsible for both events, I asked?

    Not really, she answered, although the events are linked. In both cases, she emphasized, "it won't be who they say it is."


    "Yes and no. It's like people from the government are involved. Or at least they know about it."

    She said that the public would be told that Iran was responsible for the Chicago event. "After that, it's World War Three."

    She intimated that things would not play out the way "they" planned, and that the war would spin out of all control.

    I asked for more details about the "small" nuclear event in Chicago. She mentioned the Sears tower.

    Water played a role in the scenario she envisioned; the device would be transported via boat. I reminded her that Chicago is on one of the Great Lakes. (For some reason, I couldn't remember which one!) She said that the boat would not be on a lake. "You know those movable bridges?" she asked. One of those bridges had something to do with the event.

    "You know that picture of the farmer and his wife?" she asked. I took this as a reference to Grant Wood's American Gothic, which I once saw on loan in San Francisco. (Incidentally, the woman in the painting is actually the man's sister.) I vaguely recalled that the work's "home" is in Chicago. She felt that the painting would be destroyed by the blast, and that we would subsequently see the image reproduced ad infinitum in news accounts.

    (One doesn't need ESP to foresee how the lost work would take on symbolic, even propagandistic, value.)

    Since her unusual trance-like state might never occur again, I attempted to pinpoint a date for these events. She could give neither year nor month, although she insisted that the Chicago event would occur after the fall of the skyscrapers in New York City. (She did not intimate how long after; for some reason, I came under the impression that the two events would occur within fairly quick order.)


    "When the bomb goes off in Chicago, do you see snow?" She didn't. It won't happen in the winter.

    Update: I wonder if she meant bridges like this.

    Spring 2009 bridge lifts run April through June

    Each spring and fall, Chicago's movable bridges are raised to allow recreational boats to travel to and from the Lake Michigan harbors.

    Lifts occur Wednesdays and Saturdays through June, starting along the South Branch of the Chicago River then continuing north and east to Lake Michigan. Wednesday lifts begin at 9:30 a.m. and impact the downtown area between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.. Saturday lifts begin at 8 a.m. and impact the downtown area between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.

    Each bridge lift lasts an average of 8-12 minutes.

    Federal law mandates that the bridges open for boat traffic, and CDOT coordinates the bridge lifts with local boatyards to create a schedule that minimizes the impact on street traffic.

    OK does anyone else find this totally creepy?

    A few other interesting items about this scenario which get my Illuminati sensors twitching...

    Regarding the Sears Tower, 233 S. Wacker Drive, supposedly owned by Larry Silverstein:
    The building consists of nine framed tubes, which are actually nine skyscrapers on themselves taken together into one building. Originally, the plan included no less than 15 tubes, but when the planned hotel was taken out of the project, only nine tubes were used in the final designs. The nine tubes all reach forty-nine stories. At that point, two tubes end. The other rise up to the sixty-fifth floor. From the sixty-sixth to the ninetieth floor, the tower has the shape of a crucifix. [that's like having a target painted on your back] Two tubes, creating a rectangular, reach the full height of 442 meter (1451ft).
    And over at the Art Institute of Chicago, at 111 S. Michigan Avenue:
    The exterior of the Art Institute is one of the most photographed landmarks in Chicago. The two huge lions that greet visitors at the entrance to the museum were designed and crafted by sculptor Edward Kemeys in 1894 and attract as much attention today as they did more than a century ago. Founded in 1879 as both a school and museum, the building that originally housed the Art Institute of Chicago was built atop rubble from the great Chicago fire.
    These two landmarks appear to be eight or nine blocks apart (map) but along a more or less straight east west line. The Sears Tower is built by the Chicago River and across the river is Union Station, designed by the same architect who designed the Art Institute (Daniel Burnham). And Mr. Burnham had a whole plan for the City of Chicago, and the plan celebrates it's centennial anniversary in 2009. Hmm. Go figure.

    Planting a little seed

    Those who study the NWO plans know that the goals include a micro-chipped population. Total control over where you go, what you buy, perhaps extending to whether you live or die. Why not? Look at this story from Fox News (via Cryptogon).
    It could be the ultimate in political control — but it won’t be patented in Germany.

    German media outlets reported last week that a Saudi inventor’s application to patent a “killer chip,” as the Swiss tabloids put it, had been denied.

    The basic model would consist of a tiny GPS transceiver placed in a capsule and inserted under a person’s skin, so that authorities could track him easily.

    Model B would have an extra function — a dose of cyanide to remotely kill the wearer without muss or fuss if authorities deemed he’d become a public threat.

    The inventor said the chip could be used to track terrorists, criminals, fugitives, illegal immigrants, political dissidents, domestic servants and foreigners overstaying their visas.

    “The invention will probably be found to violate paragraph two of the German Patent Law — which does not allow inventions that transgress public order or good morals,” German Patent and Trademark Office spokeswoman Stephanie Krüger told the English-language German-news Web site The Local.

    Let me point out a few things. First, a Saudi invented it. Naturally, who would be more evil than a Saudi? Maybe a Palestinian Hamasnik, but they're too poor to invent things like this unless they do it in their smuggling tunnels in their spare time when not smuggling diabolical Iranian weapons to wipe the poor Israelis off the map with help from Hezbollahniks, but I digress.

    Now, a Swiss tabloid reported this story. Did you even know that the Swiss would have tabloids? It just gets curiouser and curiouser. But the good news is that the Germans, in a fit of moral clarity (which is amazing seeing as they are *still* guilty as shit for murdering six million Jews during the Holocaust (TM)), probably won't patent the thing because it will violate paragraph two of the German Patent Law against public order or good morals. Oh PHEW. So there's nothing to worry about, especially not from the Model B chip with the cyanide option to remotely kill the chipped person "without muss or fuss" if the "authorities" deem him a public threat. People like illegal immigrants, political dissidents (bloggers?), domestic servants (cleaning people, landscape crews, nannies?) and foreigners overstaying their visas. You know, you're typical menaces to public safety.

    This is all just totally normal news now, OK? None of this will so much as raise an eyebrow. An Evil Arab has invented this killer chip, but there's nothing to worry about because nobody will ever use it, despite it's many handy uses in our super dangerous world full of brown people and terrorists and bloggers.

    Meanwhile, when was the last time you washed your hands? Did you know that money carries germs? This might strike you as Common Sense, the kind of thing that everybody knows and already takes precautions for seeing as human beings have been using money and touching things in general for thousands of years. Mm hmm. So?

    Despite the pervasiveness of cash in society, its role in transmitting illness has been the subject of surprisingly little study.
    This is my favorite part:
    Amid public concern and media hype about the swine flu outbreak, it's remarkable how little the subject of money comes up -- and how few people want to discuss it. The CDC wouldn't discuss the role of money in flu transmission. At the New York State Health Department, spokeswoman Claire Pospisil declined to comment. And when we asked the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing -- that's the government operation that actually manufactures money -- a spokeswoman told us that what happens to U.S. dollars once they're in circulation is beyond the bureau's control.
    The stiff upper lip. They don't want to talk about it. Oh My God it must be Bad. They're Hiding Something. Grab them by the shoulders and shake it out of them!!! TELL US???? HOW DANGEROUS IS THE PAPER MONEY????? WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!@@#@#$$$ (Somebody get a paper bag we have some people hyperventilating here....)

    Obviously this is just my take on the psychological mind fuckery, but it would seem to me that the seed must be planted for people to become afraid of using paper money in order to soften us up for the transition to a cashless system. A system which may or may not involve microchips somewhere down the line. You see where I'm going. Did I just string some things together and make some wild assumptions? Yes I did. It's called paying attention.


    Mental Notes

    From Urban Survival, a couple of things that I feel compelled to highlight:
    Then we get the bombing of Iran by Israel in late October, about which time, the U.S. government will be contemplating use of its 'continuity of government' plans due to social unrest brought about by (what else?) economic collapse. And that in turn sets a 4-week temporal 'timer' that brings us to the part where South Korea receives a nuke or two from the North. And then things get bad.
    And a little further down:
    Yesterday's piece in the "Coping" section - which dealt with the 'hearing of Voices" and then people supposedly disappearing has brought all kinds of feedback. But before we go there, let me clarify that the story in the Tasmanian Times was not written in 2005 as I reported yesterday, and was in fact published on May 11th...barely four days ago.

    [big giant snip here of very interesting reading, letters from George's readers, etc.]

    I have been watching the net closely for the 'disappearances' meme to set in, since that's something predicted in the HPH linguists. Some time after July 15th we ought to be reading headlines about a ship with 50-people aboard being found in Mary Celeste fashion, abandoned with no trace of living humans - and even more mystifying - no sign of violence.
    I have nothing to add except that we are moving through very strange territory now. Things like this can make the difference between you seeing some news this summer and going 'huh?' as you crack another beer versus having a little bell go off in your head reminding you to pay attention.


    Throw me a frikkin bone

    From Wikipedia, the definition of a "limited hangout:"

    A limited hangout is a form of deception, misdirection, or coverup often associated with intelligence agencies involving a release or "mea culpa" type of confession of only part of a set of previously hidden sensitive information, that establishes credibility for the one releasing the information who by the very act of confession appears to be "coming clean" and acting with integrity; but in actuality by withholding key facts is protecting a deeper crime and those who could be exposed if the whole truth came out. In effect, if an array of offenses or misdeeds is suspected, this confession admits to a lesser offense while covering up the greater ones.

    A limited hangout typically is a response to lower the pressure felt from inquisitive investigators pursuing clues that threaten to expose everything, and the disclosure is often combined with red herrings or propaganda elements that lead to false trails, distractions, or ideological disinformation; thus allowing covert or criminal elements to continue in their improper activities.

    Victor Marchetti wrote: "A 'limited hangout' is spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting - sometimes even volunteering - some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further."

    For example, from TBR News, The Voice of the White House, via The Truth Seeker:
    “As much as I dislike coping with the incredible glut of conspiracy theories I have to review on a daily basis, [because this person is obviously an "expert" and shall we say "well placed"] I saw a report early this morning that I felt I had to pass on to the public, such as it is. [oh thank you what would we do without you?] I cannot just scan it in because it is classified with a very limited COSMIC readership but I can, and have, copied out salient parts of it and, after suitable rewriting, I am sending it out. [for us??? little old us???? but we are not worthy (blushing)]

    There is now an on-going mini-epidemic of a form of swine flu sweeping the world but I can see almost nothing about how, or where, it really started. [actually hold on, there is some stuff about the CDC and the WHO back in 2004 mucking around with these virusus, and then there's the whole Baxter thing, you know this could be a hot trail maybe you people in the White House oughta get some people on it, eh?]

    Of course, it started in Mexico, probably Mexico City, and was deliberately sat on by the Mexican government because it coincided with the American spring break and the Mexicans did not want to warn off the enormous army of American teenagers who pour into that benighted country every year, flush with nice money. [um, right, of course. those damn poor brown people they fuck with us everytime...but what about the CDC and the WHO and all the money the Israelis have invested in biopharma?]

    By delaying official notice of the disease, they allowed it to spread all over the world but that is not the issue. After all, what can you expect from a country whose national bird is the fly? [yeah, um, so i see you think this is all the fault of the damn Mexicans, yup got that inference thanks, but could you please look into this other stuff about the CDC and the WHO and the tainted vaccines and all the money these biopharma companies can make forcing us to take a vaccine because we're all scared shit of dying from the scary flu they cooked up in laboratories? you know, all that stuff?]

    It seems that an Israeli pharmaceutical company, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd, one of the world’s largest with 28,000 employees located in 50 countries, bought out one Ivax Corporation that had labs in Mexico City. Teva has been working on finding vaccines and medicines for a host of different human ailments and took over the work of Ivax which also produced medicines and vaccines for human consumption but also did extensive experimental work in the veterinarian field. [oh oh you're getting warmer we got an ISRAELI company on the hook here but looks like they were just being fucking super-de-dooper as usual finding cures to save humanity with their juicy Israeli Brilliance, patented that is for the chosen people as we all know. ok so um let's see...um what happened next o inside one? please do tell us lowly peons out here in the hinterlands shaking in our flip flops?]

    It seems that sometime in late March of this year, one of the human test subjects for Teva developed a form of swine/bird flu that was not responsive to medical treatment but company officials in charge of the program (the development of a vaccine for several different forms of swine/bird flu) were unaware of this and allowed the test subject to leave their facilities and go into the public. When the test subject died, it took two weeks for the company to find out about this and as the infection was now spreading, instead of speaking out, they quickly burn reams of test documents and destroyed the records of their test subject. [oh i see, so it was simply a case of human error, and then the poor dears panicked. so we should have some sympathy because you know, that could happen to anyone. right? and by the way we can't prove anything now because they panicked and destroyed all the evidence, but we should just take your word for it is that what you're saying?]

    The CDC has learned that the type of swine/bird flu involved here “has the potential of causing a pandemic” that could “easily have the same global effect as the 1918 influenza” epidemic that killed 30-50 millions of people world wide and did terrible damage to the global economy.

    It is obvious that this was a deplorable accident but by trying to cover it up, the potential damage could be beyond our belief. Neither the Mexican authorities or the pharmaceutical company will admit to any of this and, like the missing billions of Bernie Madoff, no one in authority in the United States, Mexico or Israel will address it, hoping that the flu now creeping across the planet will not prove to be pandemic or deadly. [yeah. so we got some brown people, some Israelis, and some Americans who are acting badly, and throw in bernie for good measure just so we know that you're not covering up for the jews or anything ok we got it, and it's all just some human error combined with bad behavior but there's nothing sinister or planned about it no sirree bob are you fucking kidding me what do you think i wear a tinfoil hat?]

    What can be done about this tragedy of errors? Nothing at all. However, unlike a major earthquake, this is not an act of God but an act of man.”

    [you got that peeps? you can't do a damn thing so stop looking around there's nothing to see this is just going to have to play out and these people who fucked up well we hope they can sleep at night. 'kay? but actually there is something you can do you can contact this pharmaceutical company and pester their sorry asses to your hearts' content because that's how they're gonna know whether this here limited hangout is working...]

You need to relate to the poor guys who fucked up and be gracious about it because that could happen to anyone. It could happen to you if only you were a brilliant Israeli scientist or manager working at Teva Mexico trying to same humanity. Sheesh don't be such an asshole.
    Sociopaths want you to pity them. In some strange and perverted twist, lacking the capacity to pity or empathize themselves, they know that pity is one of humanity’s greatest vulnerabilities and most of us believe the ability to pity is a part of what’s wonderful about people. We become totally vulnerable in the face of somebody that we pity. The sociopath knows that once he has your pity, he has you in his power and control, able to trick or convince you of virtually anything. Stout says, "The most reliable sign, the most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy."
    Thankfully, you get a natural immunity from this sort of bullshit once you've been exposed to it a few hundred times.


    I smell "regrettable"

    I feel like a broken record, but if this is what it takes...

    Did the Swine Flu evolve in a lab?

    The implication being that somebody has some 'spaining to do.

    If the virus had spent time evolving in eggs, it would suggest it was not solely the creation of nature but may have been accidentally or deliberately engineered in a lab.

    If that were the case, it would of course raise questions about how something constructed in a lab ended up circulating in humans in at least 30 countries around the globe.

    Um, yeah.
    CDC to mix avian, human flu viruses in pandemic study

    Jan 14, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – One of the worst fears of infectious disease experts is that the H5N1 avian influenza virus now circulating in parts of Asia will combine with a human-adapted flu virus to create a deadly new flu virus that could spread around the world.

    That could happen, scientists predict, if someone who is already infected with an ordinary flu virus contracts the avian virus at the same time. The avian virus has already caused at least 48 confirmed human illness cases in Asia, of which 35 have been fatal. The virus has shown little ability to spread from person to person, but the fear is that a hybrid could combine the killing power of the avian virus with the transmissibility of human flu viruses.

    Now, rather than waiting to see if nature spawns such a hybrid, US scientists are planning to try to breed one themselves—in the name of preparedness.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will soon launch experiments designed to combine the H5N1 virus and human flu viruses and then see how the resulting hybrids affect animals. The goal is to assess the chances that such a "reassortant" virus will emerge and how dangerous it might be.

    CDC officials confirmed the plans for the research as described recently in media reports, particularly in a Canadian Press (CP) story.

    ...Any viable viruses that emerge from these processes will be seeded into animals that are considered good models for testing how flu viruses behave in humans, according to Daigle. The aim will be to observe whether the animals get sick and whether infected animals can infect others.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has been "pleading" for laboratories to do this research, because it could provide some evidence to back up the agency's warnings about the risk of a flu pandemic, according to the CP report.

    And they make the flu shots in labs too.

    Your turn is coming.
    The Obama administration is considering an unprecedented fall vaccination campaign that could entail giving Americans three flu shots -- one to combat annual seasonal influenza and two targeted at the new swine flu virus spreading across the globe.

    If enacted, the multibillion-dollar effort would represent the first time that top federal health officials have asked Americans to get more than one flu vaccine in a year, raising serious challenges concerning production, distribution and the ability to track potentially severe side effects.

    ..."They have never tried this before, and there is going to be a great deal of confusion," said William Schaffner, chairman of the Department of Preventive Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

    ...Some medical experts said rolling out two vaccines would present additional challenges in terms of testing and tracking adverse reactions. Health officials and manufacturers will need to know what the negative reactions might be for each vaccine on its own and in combination with the other. Initial tests would be done on animals, and then clinical trials would be conducted with people to determine side effects before either vaccine is rolled out.

    Harvey Fineberg, president of the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academy of Sciences, said officials will have to weigh the risks of the time spent on testing.

    "All this takes time, money and organization," said Fineberg, who led an investigation into the government's handling of the 1976 swine flu vaccinations.

    The greater challenge will be tracking any adverse reactions as millions of Americans get multiple vaccinations in a matter of months this fall and winter.

    "There will be adverse effects to any vaccine. That's just science," said Michael Hattwick, who ran the CDC's vaccine-tracking system during the last swine flu scare.

    It's just science people. The Science of Murdering People and Getting Away with It while Making Gazillions of Dollars.


    Idioms in Action

    Give them enough rope, and they'll hang themselves.
    Results from a recent opinion poll show at least one third of Americans more or less blame the Jewish community for the current economic recession.

    A survey by the Boston Review in its May/June issue indicates some 38 percent of the non-Jews in the United States blame the Jews in some way for the financial crisis, while an estimated 25 percent blame the Jews a moderate amount or more for the global economic slump.

    The financial crisis in the US has swept off nearly six million jobs since the start of the recession in December 2007 with American taxpayers, the working class in particular, growing a grudge against bailed-out businesses.
    Ironic, huh?


    A Conclusion Not Drawn

    Psychopaths are not all that rare. Therefore you should know how to recognize them so that you might protect yourself and your loved ones from their dangerous and potentially murderous behavior.

    Psychopaths make up about five percent of the population. If you're in a room with thirty people, chances are one of them is a psychopath. It's not a rare condition; it's like knowing someone with diabetes. It's not that they all murder, but a psychopath has no conscience. So let's just say that if someone were to be hurt or killed by something a psychopath did or did not do, it would not necessarily be a big deal to the person -- you know, as long as he or she could get away with it. It might even be sort of amusing to the psychopath. You know people like this, you probably just don't know what to call them other than "asshole."

    The corporate media, for all their Investigative Reporting, will not tell you this. They love these stories about psychopaths and the horrible things they do, but they present them as rare, mysterious birds who puzzle and confound the experts. Take The TODAY Show, a forum that reaches millions and millions of Americans.
    Experts: Drew Peterson's body language says a lot

    Drew Peterson’s behavior and words during interviews with TODAY and NBC News did not match up with what would be expected from someone whose wife had abandoned him and his children for another man, two analysts said Thursday. [Unless he is a psychopath, in which case his behavior is perfectly consistent.]

    Body language expert Tonya Reiman and NBC analyst and former FBI profiler Clint Van Zandt reviewed the tapes of Peterson talking exclusively to TODAY’s Matt Lauer on Wednesday and saw a man sitting back with legs spread wide in a position of arrogance. They said they also saw a man who showed no anger or frustration or concern for his children, who have been left without a mother since the Oct. 28 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.

    “Just indifference, pure indifference,” Reiman told Lauer after analyzing the tape. “[Peterson’s] wife is missing, and you notice that there’s really nothing going on with his expressions. You don’t see any remorse, you don’t see any anger, frustration.”

    ...In a later interview on Wednesday with NBC News, Peterson had gotten emotional about his children, but only in response to a question about what would happen to them if he is charged and found guilty with killing either Savio or Stacy Peterson.

    He briefly choked up when saying, “If my kids are OK and provided with, I’m OK with anything that comes. If you’re trying to get me to cry, you’re close.”

    ...“This is a guy, we’re told, who wouldn’t leave his wife alone. He followed her to college, he monitored her cell phones, he knew who she saw socially,” he said. “Number one, he ought to be able to say, ‘Here’s her cell phone records. Here’s the name of her boyfriend.’ Number two, he can’t give us one name, one example of who this mysterious person she may have run off with is.”

    It's just so puzzling, isn't it? What does it mean when a person shows indifference to the pain and suffering of his own family members and children, shows no expression or remorse unless talking about himself, and stalks his own wife? Do you think the FBI Profiler knows the answer to this question? I don't suppose he could have done his job unless he knew how to recognize psychopaths, do you? Why doesn't The TODAY Show let you know that Drew Peterson's behavior is consistent with him being a psychopath, and that this condition affects about five out of one hundred people and not one in a thousand as you might be forgiven for concluding? Wouldn't it be good for people to know that sort of thing? Maybe they could protect themselves.

    For some reason, it's like the corporate media just doesn't want you to know the truth about psychopaths. Why is that? Would it ruin all the fun or something?



    Memo to Human Beings: Expectations Matter

    I have come to the conclusion over time that we must have a fighting spirit and an attitude that good will prevail over evil in order for that to be true. I've written about it in a few different ways here, usually with religious connotations because I am a person of faith. But for those of you who maybe need a different slant, George Ure offered one on Tuesday May 5th at Urban Survival (you have to scroll down to Coping: With Detractors).

    Turns out that at a very deep, fundamental level, it turns out that God/Universe/Nature (or however you want to refer to in this here Matrix is highly entangled. With respect to Erwin: "Verschränkung'ed". Expect the cat to live when you view it and it lives! Expect it to be dead and so it will be....

    Since Cliff, Igor, and I approached this project with a 'time monk's' perspective (look gently at the future but don't get caught up in profiting from it, or changing it) , we've been able to observe that yes, it appears the future really can be manipulated - future-jacked - if you will.

    But it's much more complex than people imagine. A good starting point might be to read Dean Radin's book: Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality. For you see, the future changes slightly each time we looked at it but more importantly, each time our expectations change.

    Best I can figure, our looking at it - without any sense of attachment to a particular outcome is the only way that one can look at the future without changing it, because it seems that when a particular outcome is desired, the future can be made to drift a little, this way or that.

    To be more direct, the entanglement / Verschränkung of it is such that it appears influenced by expectations.

    What's more, in my study along the way, it seems many different human activities may influence how the future actually shows up because they change expectations. Does prayer work? Well, if it embeds a really firm expectation about how the future will arrive, of course. But doesn't that also mean meditation could work? Again, most certainly. And what about all those self-help guru's and their positive mindset/ positive expectations? Well, them too, at least to some extent.

    But wait! What about groups that hold on to supposed magical traditions handed down from ancient Egypt - do they work too? Then what about a fraternity group or covens of 'magicians' following the tradition of the Golden Dawn schools...they all work on expectations of the future so what about them? Well, yeah, them too.

    In fact, all of them may work, at one level or another (except for the groups that have been co-opted from the inside via Mafia-type favor-traders within the ranks of otherwise 'clean' traditions), but they only work to the extent they effectively implant changed expectations about the future.

    ...What happens when those seeking Power enter the equation is that this personal self determination or self-manipulation of the future becomes forbidden, or lost, or tabooed away such that regular folks like you and me are hypnotized into thinking it doesn't exist. Then, what happens with Power is that some person or institution will set itself up and offer that for a price of some kind, you will be reintroduced to the power within each of us. A little 'tribute', either in the form of money, but also in the belief of the Power leadership's ideology/vision of the future and trah lah! Stairway to Heaven turns out to be right there in front of you....

    And so forth and so on. This is why, my dear people who love humanity, we must have steel rods of certainty in our spines that we will prevail. Don't sit around all Woe! Woe! We're Doomed!

    No no no a thousand times NO. Do not ever concede your desire and EXPECTATION that good will prevail over evil, and right soon as a matter of fact. Whether you get there by faith or science does not matter at this point, but get there and do it today. Thank you for your cooperation!

    In solidarity and love, your fellow human being,
