no fear mongering, no psyop - updated

[Updated at bottom, just tying up a loose thread.]

A short diversion to another topic: smallpox.

To refresh your memory, we have looked into this before.

One has to PREPARE first.

And PLAN. And have NARRATIVES Ready To Go.

See: not ready yet

Excerpt: Once upon a time, a long time ago, namely June 2001, our US government ran a national security exercise called Dark Winter simulating a smallpox attack, to see if the country was ready for a biological weapon attack. Conclusion: NOT READY YET.

See: eat fresh produce

Excerpt: ...And we were stunned to learn that a Dr. A.R. Campbell, 1865-1931, conducted extensive research on smallpox, and he discovered that smallpox was caused by bedbugs. Furthermore, it did not spread person to person, or through the air, or through clothing, but it struck people with poor hygiene and vitamin C deficiency.

"In considering this malady, I quickly became impressed with two distinctive peculiarities of it, viz: Its being a disease of the winter and of the coldest climates, and that, as a rule, it is confined to the lower or filthy classes." Resume of Experiments on Variola, by Charles A.R. Campbell, M.D.

One would note at this link that a Russian scientist had arrived at the same conclusions as Dr. Campbell. One might also note the strong connection to poor nutrition and crop failures:

The most important observation on the medical aspect of this disease is the cachexia with which it is invariably associated and which is actually the soil requisite for its different degrees of virulence. I refer to the scorbutic cachexia. Among the lower classes of people this particular acquired constitutional perversion of nutrition is most prevalent, primarily on account of their poverty, but also because of the fact that they care little or nothing for fruits or vegetables. That a most intimate connection exists between variola and scorbutus is evidenced by the fact that it is most prevalent among the poor or filthy class of people ; that it is more prevalent in winter, when the antiscorbutics are scarce and high priced; and, finally, that the removal of this perversion of nutrition will so mitigate the virulence of this malady as positively to prevent the pitting or pocking of smallpox. A failure of the fruit crop in any particularly large area is always followed the succeeding winter by the presence of smallpox.

Very, very interesting reading.

"The current drought is covering almost as much of the U.S. as during the 1930s dust bowl."


We have been told repeatedly that smallpox was eradicated worldwide, except for some samples of the deadly virus which exist in the US and Russia.

The last officially acknowledged stocks of variola are held by the United States at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by Russia at the State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology. The US collection consists of 450 isolates of variola, while various authoritative sources place the number of specimens retained by Russia at ≈150 samples, consisting of 120 different strains (7,8), including several selected for their increased virulence that were collected during the Cold War as potential biological weapons. The possibility that stolen smallpox cultures may already be in the hands of rogue states or terrorist organizations also remains an important subject of international concern. 
Cave home in Afghanistan.

Well, you know, you cannot reassort deadly viruses in caves. You need BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs.
"These are not easy viruses to reconstruct," Professor Diane Griffin of Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health said in 2005. "You're not going to do this in a cave in Afghanistan." (source)

How many BSL-3 and BSL-4 (even safer!) labs are there in the world?

And where do they conduct bioterrorism research?
Not in the caves of Afghanistan.
BSL-3 lab at University of Georgia, for "research involving recombinant DNA molecules"

Just to be crystal clear: BIO-TERROR research is conducted in BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs.


Most nations agreed these smallpox stocks should have been destroyed, but then, it turned out, LUCKILY, in 2011, they REALIZED that they *should NOT* destroy the stocks after all. Because they discovered there could be some [$$$$$$$$$$] "CURES" in those viruses. And sure enough, we have noticed stories in the past few months about the smallpox vaccine having sudden new benefits vis a vis other diseases.

In 2011, the World Health Organization will recommend the fate of existing smallpox stockpiles, but circumstances have changed since the complete destruction of these cultures was first proposed. Recent studies suggest that variola and its experimental surrogate, vaccinia, have a remarkable ability to modify the human immune response through complex mechanisms that scientists are only just beginning to unravel. Further study that might require intact virus is essential. Moreover, modern science now has the capability to recreate smallpox or a smallpox-like organism in the laboratory in addition to the risk of nature re-creating it as it did once before. These factors strongly suggest that relegating smallpox to the autoclave of extinction would be ill advised.
Phew close call, huh?

Just in the nick of time, the scientists found out about the possible miracles that they must study by recreating the smallpox or smallpox-like organisms in their BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs, located worldwide, which you may recall those labs are -- INEXPLICABLY -- not as super secure as we would hope. 


Sure enough, because we have a news filter for "smallpox," we can tell you that smallpox is very much alive and well in the scientific community and percolates along on the back burner of the herd consciousness. These headlines are just from November 2012, just a selection. This goes on all the time, this constant background focus on smallpox. Someone someplace is always reminding us. Never Forget blah blah blah.

LA Times: Smallpox virus detected in 300-year old Siberian mummy, 11/21/12...
San Fransisco Chronicle: Smallpox vaccine kills liver cancer, 11/23/12....
Reuters: Bavarian Nordic receives additional order for IMVAMUNE(R) smallpox vaccines from the Canadian government, 11/28/12....
Business Wire: Research and markets: Smallpox - pipeline review H2 2012, 11/2/12....
The Nation (Pakistan): Three children die of smallpox in Khairpur, 11/19/12

Whoa, hold on a second there. We thought this disease was eradicated except for the stockpiles in the US and Russia....?

KHAIRPUR - Three children died of smallpox in Therimirwah Taulka in Khairpur district. Three children identified as Samander, Ashfaq, Farhan died at village Ajeeb Dasti near Tharimirwah. According to the villagers, a total of seven children died during the last 48 hours in different villages, but the health department or district administration are still unaware in this regard. They said due to poor services of the health department, medicines are stolen from health centres while district administration is also not paying attention in this regard. They have demanded dispatch of doctors teams to their areas as several people including children are suffering from smallpox disease and the people are scared of the rising death toll.

How can this be? Well, there are a couple of possibilities:

1) It's not smallpox but some other pox. 
2) Bio-terrorists, using their BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs, have let the disease loose in Pakistan.
3) It's a disease that occurs naturally under certain conditions: bedbugs + winter months + poor nutrition / hygiene / poverty / lack of Vitamin C + following crop failures.

So, let's see here. We have a precedent case. It turns out that back in June 2002, a similar event happened. No one seemed to know anything.
A spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control says he had not heard anything from official sources about any outbreak.
“We did get some anecdotal reports,” said the CDC’s Llelwyn Grant.
“There are so many poxes out there that are sometimes misdiagnosed,” Grant continued. “It could be a number of things.”
OBVIOUSLY not a big emergency to the CDC, aside being useful to open some public forums about the smallpox vaccine. But the story goes on to speculate about al qaeda being responsible. And then, it turned out to be chickenpox.  Hoo, false alarm. And of course, it makes sense as all of us who were children once if we remember, and those who additionally have children may also remember, that chickenpox tends to go around in the warm months.

Lesson straight from the CDC's mouth: "There are so many poxes out there that are sometimes misdiagnosed. It could be a number of things."

So if you ever hear about smallpox breaking out, just remember it could be one of the many other poxes. Especially if it happens in the warm months. Just Saying there is no need to push the panic button in case some news story pops up about people getting smallpox someplace.

As for al qaeda or some other bioterrorists, we would expect that IF THAT WERE THE CASE THIS TIME, this news would have been handled differently. You would not be reading about it way over here at Twelfth Bough on 12/28, because everyone on teevee would have been freaking out over it since 11/20. The narrative is always prepared in advance of the event. If you don't see a narrative, that means the event was not planned. 

No fear mongering, no psyop!

That leaves us the third explanation: it's a naturally occurring outbreak of the disease...?

In 2003, we see this report about some army doctors who had seen smallpox patients in Pakistan in the 1960s.

Notable observations:

Kersey, university colleague Dr. Ashley Haase and Dr. David Williams of the Mayo Clinic are part of an elite medical group: the 200 to 400 U.S. doctors who have seen smallpox victims. Their expertise has largely been overlooked during federal bioterrorism planning.
All three say they are reassured by planning done during the past year to prepare the nation to deal with a bioterrorism attack. Their experience also suggests that smallpox is readily recognized and that it typically doesn't spread beyond bedside contacts of victims -- even in the medical conditions of war-torn Pakistan in the 1960s, where all three saw the disease....

When the two men arrived in one of the dusty villages dotting the Himalayan foothills of northern Pakistan, they would ask for the village chief. Then they would share tea, as custom dictated, and ask if any villagers had smallpox.

If the answer was yes, Haase would ask to see the smallpox victims. Most often, they were cared for by family members in dark, cramped, homes.

Sometimes, he would encounter smallpox victims along the road. One woman was journeying to a distant part of Pakistan to visit relatives. She had the disease's pustules but felt strong enough to make the trip.

The woman, and others like her, probably helped keep smallpox circulating in Pakistan, Haase said. The virus can be shed in pustule scabs. Still, cases were rare, indicating that the disease did not spread easily without prolonged, close contact, he said.

That was good, because the drug Haase tested didn't work. It often made people vomit. Some patients' families got angry and forced him to leave villages in a hurry.

...Williams, 70, a retired lung specialist at the Mayo Clinic, was a Methodist medical missionary stationed in Pakistan from 1965 until late 1973. He still remembers his first smallpox case at the United Christian Hospital in Lahore.

The man, who lived in the countryside, arrived covered with pustules. The diagnosis was obvious.

Williams and the other doctors sent the man elsewhere for treatment after a day or so.

No one else at the hospital contracted the disease, including the men in the open ward where the man stayed, he said. Although most staff members were vaccinated, many patients were not.

...Kersey, 64, had much the same experience at a hospital in Karachi, in southern Pakistan.
That's where he saw the three smallpox patients whose pustule-marked faces still are imprinted on his memory. Yet no one else in the hospital became infected; most staff members were vaccinated.

In the slums of Karachi, where he volunteered to care for patients, it was different. The crowded conditions, malnutrition and other health problems helped the disease spread.

"These were extraordinarily poor health conditions," he said. And smallpox wasn't the only threat. Far more common, Kersey said, were leprosy, malaria, rabies and deaths from a disease that still kills millions of people -- diarrhea.

The expertise of these doctors has been largely ignored by the people doing bioterrorism planning. CHECK.

AND, their observations about smallpox agree entirely with the observations of Dr. A.R. Campbell. CHECK.

AND, we have no fear-mongering narrative in place. CHECK.

AND, we have a precedent case of misdiagnosis in Pakistan, in 2002. CHECK.

What else do we know?

Khairpur district of Pakistan

At the same time the provincial government of Sindh has declared Tharparkar District a calamity-hit drought area, deferring all payments of outstanding government dues including agricultural taxes and loan payments. It further declared the drought situation beyond its capacity to respond and called upon the federal government and international community to respond to the people’s needs. 95% of Tharparkar has had no rain and 1.2 million of its population of 1.3 million is affected by the drought. Major parts of Umerkot District and some areas of Sukkur, Khairpur, Sanghar, Kohistan region of Jamshoro, and ‘Kachho’ area of Dadu District are also facing severe drought. 

Pictures of Khairpur:


We think, maybe, there's a pretty good chance that the people who live in Khairpur may be poor, and malnourished, and lack vitamin C in their diets, due to the floods a couple of years ago (that were inexplicably not forecasted), and the current drought this year. We think also, that some of these people may have to contend with pests such as bedbugs.

In other words, we think this is an environment, that HISTORICALLY, provides the conditions that lead to smallpox.


Virtually eradicated nationwide sixty years ago thanks to superpowered pesticides such as DDT, bedbugs are back — largely because those chemicals are now banned, but also thanks to what experts quoted in news reports call "increased foreign travel." While much of this involves airplanes — and Koehler points out that "there are parts of the world such as India and Pakistan that have had bedbugs forever and where they never went away" — the bedbug resurgence is spurring not-so-surprising buzz about its origins.
Ah, see, the bedbugs could be Pakistan's fault then? Experts cite "increased foreign travel?" You know, from skeevy places that we might want to bomb someday? Actually we had a different take on it.

Bedbugs have plagued humans for centuries. Then, after a half a century of relative inactivity, the bedbugs suddenly started up again in the late 1990s. Hmm. Kind of strange. And of course, the bedbugs are harder to kill than ever.

Scientists hypothesize what's up with that. In the 1940s and ’50s, liberal use of DDT and other insecticides all but wiped out the pests. Scientists hypothesize that the few that survived proliferated—females can lay up to five eggs a day, and 500 during a lifetime—and passed along pesticide-resistant traits. Millions of bedbug generations later, scientists are finally zeroing in on how, exactly, bedbugs made their comeback.

Possibilities include:
  1. thicker skin repels pesticides faster 
  2. metabolism repels pesticides 
  3. chemical blocking repels pesticides 
  4. Fort Detrick bio-engineered a bedbug that repels pesticides

Just kidding! The scientists didn't actually hypothesize about Fort Detrick. That was us.
Some people might be eager to blame countries like Pakistan for the bedbug problem, and perhaps the smallpox problem should it become an issue, but they should rather look at countries with BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs, because that's where all the bioterror research is conducted. Research that may have made bedbugs *suddenly* more virulent after decades of being easily controlled, and research into creating deadly chimera viruses that would never occur in nature, and research into naturally occurring diseases like smallpox that have been understood for over a century, with such knowledge having been intentionally suppressed from the masses, leading to needless suffering. And also leading to some people making obscene profits on vaccines and huge government bureaucracies instead.


For your consideration.


eleven twenty nine - UPDATED

UPDATE at the bottom...

This November 29th, the UN General Assembly will vote on upgrading Palestine to non-member status. On 11/29/47, the UN General Assembly voted to divide Palestine.


The moment Israel stops being Israel it becomes Palestine. 


Hamas was formally created in 1987 (25 years ago), and before that Hamas founder Sheikh Yassin's Islamist activities had been externally supported since the 1970s.


Hamas is a creation of the Mossad -- CIRCA 2002 article:
Thanks to the Mossad, Israel's "Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks", the Hamas was allowed to reinforce its presence in the occupied territories. Meanwhile, Arafat's Fatah Movement for National Liberation as well as the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression and intimidation Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, "Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO)".

Golda Meir

Back in the 1970s, Israeli PM Golda Meir began authorizing monies to fund an Islamist movement -- Yassin's -- to push against the PLO, to compete with and weaken the PLO via schools, health clinics, jobs run by the Islamist movement.

...when the Intifada (‘uprising’) began, in October 1987, which took the Islamists by surprise, Sheik [Ahmad] Yassin responded by creating the Hamas (The Islamic Resistance Movement)...The Hamas had built its strength through its various acts of sabotage of the peace process, in a way which was compatible with the interests of the Israeli government. In turn, the latter sought in a number of ways, to prevent the application of the Oslo accords. In other words, Hamas was fulfilling the functions for which it was originally created: to prevent the creation of a Palestinian State. And in this regard, Hamas and Ariel Sharon, see eye to eye; they are exactly on the same wave length.
To be clear, the 2002 analysis says Hamas was originally created to prevent the creation of a Palestinian State.

Click through for the details.

Has the goal of Hamas changed?



Sheikh Ahmad Yassin was assassinated by Israel in March 2004. Reportedly, Ariel Sharon himself ordered the hit.

By killing the spiritual leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Israel wanted to deal a deadly blow to Hamas, however the act had backfired. Israel granted Sheikh Yassin his greatest wish, gave unprecedented boost to the resistance movement in occupied Palestine, and made of him a resistance icon in the Arab and Islamic worlds.

The Israeli assassination of Yassin "backfired" by giving an unprecedented boost to the conflict that Israel needs to go on forever and ever and ever. Win win win.

Israel just last week assassinated another Hamas leader, Ahmad Jabari, just as he was negotiating a permanent truce with Israel. This will "backfire" too, giving an unprecedented boost to the conflict that Israel needs to go on forever and ever and ever. The conflict that prevents Palestinian statehood from coming.

Hamas actions will make things harder for Abbas as he pursues non-state membership for Palestine in the UN, with a vote on 11/29/12.

Israeli official: Palestinian statehood appeal to UN would nullify peace deals
Israel's vice premier says the Palestinians would violate their peace accords with Israel by seeking recognition of an independent state of Palestine at the United Nations. Moshe Yaalon told Army Radio on Wednesday that Israel would "have to take steps to make it clear that there will be heavy price" if the Palestinians go ahead with their plan to petition the U.N. General Assembly for statehood on Nov. 29. He said it would be a "flagrant" breach of the accords of the early 1990s but stopped short of saying they would be rendered void. But another official said Israel was sending out the message to world leaders that it would consider the accords nullified if the statehood bid goes ahead. He spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential comments.

Israel would take steps? Such as war on Gaza? War with Hamas? Hamas which was created to prevent the creation of a Palestinian state?

Khaled Mechaal
 image from: lexpress.fr

Thierry Meyssan writes about the timing:

Why a New War on Gaza?

Two of the points made:
  1. Possibly this will resurrect an old plan to transfer the Palestinians to Jordan, thus evacuating and annexing their territory. "In this case, the military operation must not target all Hamas leaders indiscriminately, but only those who oppose the former political head of the organisation, Khaled Mechaal, since he is slated to become the first President of a Palestinian State in Jordan."
  2. The Syrian war has caused economic hardship in Jordan, leading to protests supervised by the Muslim Brotherhood, to follow other Arab takeovers in Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. "The best-known member of the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood is Khaled Mechaal, the ex-chief of the political branch of Hamas. Mechaal lived in exile from 2001 to 2012 in Damascus, under the protection of the Syrian state. In February 2012, he sudddenly accused Bashar al-Assad’s government of repressing his own people, and chose to move to Qatar, where Emir Hamad al-Thani showed him great generosity."

Other Hamas leaders appear to have been targeted for assassination.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The residence and offices of a number of Hamas leaders were identified during the recent visit to the Gaza Strip by Qatar's King Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and later targeted by Israeli missile and bomb attacks, informed sources disclosed. The emir of Qatar gifted a number of watches and ballpoint pens to Hamas leaders, which transmitted low-frequency signals to Israeli satellites, the sources, who asked to remain unnamed due to the sensitivity of the information, told FNA, adding that the Israeli military officials would then use the received signals to spot and assassinate senior Hamas officials.
Qatar Sheikh Hamad
"In the past year alone, Qatar, through its sovereign wealth fund, has taken a 10-percent in Volkswagen AG, bought famed London department store Harrods, acquired Singapore's historic Raffles hotel as well as the landmark US embassy building in London."

PRESUMABLY the Israeli military only assassinated the Hamas officials who were not on their payroll, or who were no longer cooperating. Presumably, Mr. Mechaal is on the payroll and will not be assassinated.

Hamas, like any large organization, has many people. Some of the people are honest. Some of them have hidden agendas.

How Israel actually helps Hamas, by Erin Cunningham 11/15/12

Five years ago Hamas won the Palestinian legislative lections, then seized power in Gaza after a brief civil war with its rival, Fatah. Sworn enemies of Israel, Hamas and the tiny, beleaguered territory they inherited were quickly placed under onerous international trade sanctions.
But instead of crippling Hamas’ rule, the years-long blockade has turned the movement into a wealthy enterprise with a far-reaching tax regime and widespread investments.
Hamas’ wealth has helped it win some local support, but the group’s mafia-style intrusion into sub-sectors of Gaza’s economy has frustrated others. Hamas leaders have positioned themselves as overlords of the territory’s business transactions.
In an effort to pressure Hamas, Israel often closes border crossings, choking off traditional commercial routes. This has allowed Hamas to consolidate control over smuggling tunnels under the Egyptian border.
“The traditional businessmen of Gaza, the traditional landowners, and the traditional [influential] families have all disappeared” in the past few years, said Eyad Sarraj, a Gazan psychiatrist and rights activist who also served as a consultant to the Palestinian delegation at the 2000 Camp David Accords.
“They are being replaced by new businessmen, new leaders and new families — families from the villages from where Hamas leaders come,” he said. “The big umbrella of power [in Gaza] today is Hamas. If you are under that umbrella, you can have some power.”
The full extent of Hamas’ financial empire remains unclear, as it hides much of its funding — including cash from patron states abroad — from scrutiny. But the movement is considerably better off than it was five years ago.
Let's recap that:
OVERLORDS of the territory's business transactions...
Using mafia-style intrusions into sub-sections of the economy...
To create a wide ranging financial enterprise...
An organization that benefited from the brutal Israeli blockade policy...
And supplanted traditional influential families...
And employs secrecy about foreign funding...

We are talking about Hamas here.

Hamas controls all the tunnels, one way or another. There are perhaps 400 main tunnels and 1000 subsidiary tunnels. Tens of thousands are employed by Hamas. Hamas controls economic life in Gaza. Hamas taxes every item that comes into Gaza through the tunnels.

Gaza tunnel trade: Matter of life and death for Hamas

A well-informed Palestinian source, speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat on the condition of anonymity, revealed that “the Hamas tunnel belongs to the [Hamas] movement, and Hamas affiliates are employed there, and this tunnel specializes in the smuggling and importing of special goods for the Hamas movement, including cars and arms.” He added that Hamas elements also uses the tunnel network to enter and exit the Gaza Strip.
As for the public tunnels, the source stressed that “these are owned by ordinary people, and they have partners, sometimes Egyptian Bedouins” adding “these tunnels are subject to Hamas supervision and specialize in the smuggling of goods and commodities.”

Hamas views the tunnels as a matter of life and death, whilst the Palestinian Authority [PA] – based in the West Bank – supports their closure and destruction. The PA has claimed that 600 new millionaires have made their fortunes thanks to the tunnels, at the expense of thousands of ordinary workers who are risking their lives. 

As noted, Hamas employs many people. People who are trying to survive in Gaza.


That is no reason not to scrutinize Hamas.

The US military employs many people. The FBI employs many people. The intelligence and police services employ many people. Corporations employ many people. Media companies employ many people.

So what. Do we not scrutinize organizations because we work for them, because our loved ones work for them? Because they pay us? Because they do some good things? In fact, it makes sense to scrutinize organizations all the more if we are giving our labor to them. In fact, many large organizations are full of corruption.

Some people don't do that. We understand. Are all these people corrupt? No. Many people are trying to survive, to pay their bills. People are trying to survive all over the world, and especially in Gaza. They remain COMPARTMENTALIZED. But certainly, many people in the US military, in the FBI, in the intelligence and police services, in corporations and media companies are certainly corrupt, and work for organized crime.

And Hamas, no doubt, has some corrupt people too, people who seem to be part of organized crime.

And why wouldn't this be so, given that Gaza is located in the WORLD HUB OF ORGANIZED CRIME?

We just want to suggest that we should notice these details.

The NYT tells us that, regrettably, the Palestinian Authority is losing credibility, and regrettably, Hamas is gaining popularity.

The West Bank, aka Little Bantustan
under control of the Palestine Authority
shredded by Israeli settlements and roads

"Gaza crisis poses threat to faction favored by US."

The Gaza truce talks in Cairo, involving Egypt, Turkey and Qatar, offer a telling tableau. The Palestinian leader seen there is not Mr. Abbas, but Khaled Meshal, the leader of the militant group Hamas, who seeks to speak for all Palestinians as his ideological brothers in the Muslim Brotherhood rise to power around the region.
Israel is also threatening Mr. Abbas, even hinting that it may give up on him, as he prepares to go to the United Nations General Assembly on Nov. 29 to try to upgrade the Palestinian status to that of a nonmember state. The Israelis consider this step an act of aggression, and even some Palestinians say it is somewhat beside the point at this stage.

The Hamas leader Meshal, allied with the MB, is meeting with the other tools from Egypt, Turkey and Qatar. Meantime Israel threatens Abbas over the statehood issue. And which part of this cabal is not supported by the US? Just Mr. Abbas.

Many Palestinians believe that Israel launched its latest operation in Gaza to block the Palestinian Authority’s United Nations plans by embarrassing it. Israeli officials say that is ridiculous: the operation’s purpose is to stop the growing number of rockets being fired at their communities, and Israelis interrupted their deliberations over the United Nations bid to wage the military campaign. 

It is not about the damn rockets. Palestinian statehood is the issue. The UN General Assembly vote on 11/29 is the issue.

UPDATE: 11/21/12

We think this term "DURABLE OUTCOME" term used by Hillary Clinton is mighty interesting.

"The goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians alike," Hillary told reporters in a joint media availability with Netanyahu here - her first stop in her current visit to the region.

We could be wrong but that term has not been tossed about until now. Durable. Hmm. Sounds like Final Solution stuff.

"They briefed her on the situation in Gaza and the threat posed by continuing rocket fire to Israeli cities and towns. The Secretary offered condolences for Israeli citizens killed and wounded in attacks today and over the past several days," Nuland said in Washington. Ahead of her meeting with Netanyahu, Hillary told reporters that Obama has emphasised on "durable outcome" in his multiple conversations with the Egyptian President.

Clinton and Nuland, State Department

The Jewess Nuland speaks. The threat? Continuing rocket fire to Israeli cities and towns. Regrettably nothing ever seems to stop that problem. No one can control those damn rockets. The poor Israeli citizens get the apology from Clinton. Does anyone apologize to the Palestinians who suffer ten thousand percent more? We must have missed that part. Obama also mentions the DURABLE OUTCOME in his conversations with Morsi. Clinton will now consult with Abbas.

She said the US would work with its partners in Israel and across the region towards an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza, and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region....Following the meeting, Nuland said in a statement issued in Washington that Hillary and Netanyahu discussed efforts to de-escalate the situation and bring about a sustainable outcome that protects Israel's security and improves the lives of civilians in Gaza.
We note the language.

What could be more durable than getting the Palestinians out of Gaza forever?

We note that moving the Palestinians to another location would be a SOLUTION that fits this language. If one accepts the goals as presented, and they sound so nice and reasonable, one can then be pressured to accept a SOLUTION which meets those goals. Well if you don't, you obviously don't CRAVE PEACE & YEARN FOR PEACE?? Note that the goals do not mention anything specifically that the Palestinians would stay in Gaza. The goal is just to IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS FOR THE PEOPLE OF GAZA.

Presumably, that could be accomplished by MOVING THE PEOPLE OF GAZA somewhere else. Somewhere with better conditions. The Palestinians have been conditioned to get on the move by those sweet pamphlets that the IOF helpfully dumped on them from airplanes.

Perhaps they can move to Jordan? Perhaps, since King Abdullah of Jordan is now coming under the threat of the Arab Spring, he could be persuaded to make a huge concession and be a hero and allow a Palestinian state to be established in Jordan... ? And then he could stay in power and Khaled Meshaal could be the leader of the Palestinians?


Obama and Netanyahu are the presidents who magically resolve the problem, after all these years? OH the Legacy... The intractable problem finally solved.....?

The Palestinians in Gaza get IMPROVED CONDITIONS? And the Israelis get SECURITY? And the people of the region get a COMPREHENSIVE PEACE?? Everyone is So Happy?

OH, and, by the way, Israel would get control over those OIL AND GAS DEPOSITS OFF THE COAST OF GAZA?

This is about DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Except in this case, there is an extra step required because the Palestinians have been so difficult to subdue, and they keep having babies: DISPLACE.

Israel divided the Palestinians physically into two distinct areas, the West Bank and Gaza. CHECK. They divided the Palestinians politically as well. Hamas in Gaza, the Palestine Authority in the West Bank. CHECK.

Still, they have not been able to conquer the Palestinians.

In order to conquer and get the land, they need to move those pesky Palestinians out. Especially out of Gaza, because of the offshore oil and gas deposits. Blockades and punishment for Gaza, settlers and checkpoints for the West Bank.

Israel's "adversary" in Gaza is Hamas. The negotiations go between Israel and Hamas. The negotiations go back and forth, but the destination seems to be appearing on the horizon now: is that a Palestinian state in Jordan...?

Huh, is that paradise we see off in the distance? 
Paradise for whom?

Anyone who has sailed knows that when you head into the wind, you have to tack back and forth to get to your destination.

That is what we see from here. We could be too far away, or we could be just the right distance.

CODA: Now for the limited hangout..."Number crunchers were right about Obama despite what pundits said," LA Times. 

Story mentions Nate Silver for the NYT, Sam Wang, Drew Linzer, Scott Elliott... no mention of Richard Charnin. We wouldn't want to get CARRIED AWAY with the truth or anything about the fraud factor. Yes the math guys nailed it. No we don't want to say what that means about previous elections being rigged.

Money quotes:
"The most sophisticated quantitative work is not happening with people like me, but by those inside the campaigns themselves," Linzer said. He and other election quants said candidates employ high-powered math whizzes of their own to help predict outcomes and have far larger budgets than any college professor.
"Their work doesn't show up in a blog or newspaper, but it's their secret sauce," he said.

So, in other words, the campaigns know exactly what is going on at all times. All those nice donations? Used in part to know the truth about what the public really thinks, to better fine tune the mind-fucking on the campaign trail. Please send more money it's such a close race...


Others decry the injection of mathematics in something as personal and heated as presidential politics. Their fear is that computers, rather than well-spoken pundits, might not only take the fun out of the races, but also change the way they're conducted.

Math and facts.... Ruining Everything...

(Hey, Karl Rove gave it the good old college try...911 votes blah blah blah...


UPDATED at the bottom...

Too close to call...? Really...?*

What are the odds that has happened in multiple elections in recent history? How does this country stay so perilously divided, year after year?

The cartogram map (top) scales states in proportion to their population and vote in the 2008 election.

Perhaps in reality, the race is not actually too close to call, but that NARRATIVE needs to be in place for a multitude of reasons. It might be too boring unless the race is kept "too close to call." Also, the challenger needs to have a PLAUSIBLE CHANCE of winning.... somehow... so people need to believe that the race is too close to call. That way, when some plausible things go wrong, the race can be tipped.


Updated Daily: Presidential True Vote / Election Fraud Forecast Model by Richard Charnin

The Presidential True Vote and Monte Carlo Simulation Forecast Model is updated on a daily basis. The election is assumed to be held on the latest poll date.
11/06/2012 9am
Obama: 321 expected electoral votes; 99.6% win probability (498 of 500 trials).
He leads the state poll weighted average by 49.3-46.2%.
He leads in 16 of 18 Battleground states by 50.4-47.0% with 184 of 205 EV.

A 99.6% win probability according to this mathematician.

The True Vote Model indicates that Obama would have 55.2% of the two-party vote with 371 expected EV in a fraud-free election. Will he be able to overcome the systemic fraud factor?

Note that in a fraud-free election, the election is not actually too close to call.  Not even before the vote. The models show that Obama should win decisively.

1988-2008: 274 Exit state polls. An 8% Discrepancy
In the six presidential elections from 1988-2008, the Democrats won the average recorded vote by 48-46%. But they led both state and national exit polls by 52-42%. There were approximately 375,000 respondents in the 274 state polls and 90,000 respondents in the six national polls. Overall, an extremely low margin of error.
1988-2008 Unadjusted State and National Exit Poll Database
The Ultimate Smoking Gun that proves Systemic Election Fraud:
1) The Likely Voter Cutoff Model eliminates newly registered Democrats from the LV sub-sample. Kerry had 57-61% of new voters; Obama had 72%.
2) Exit poll precincts are partially selected based on the previous election recorded vote.
3) In the 1988-2008 presidential elections, 226 of 274 exit polls red-shifted to the Republicans. Only about 137 would normally be expected to red-shift. The probability is zero.
4) 126 of the 274 exit polls exceeded the margin of error. Only 14 (5%) would normally be expected. The probability is ZERO.
5) 123 of the 126 exit polls that exceeded the margin of error red-shifted to the Republicans. The probability is ZERO.
Please click through for the detailed analysis.


If the models show that Obama should win, then the narrative about the race being too close to call clearly benefits Romney. Aside from the tight race narrative putting pressure on people to turn out, Obama does not need the narrative to keep a win plausible. The models show with 99% certainty that Obama will win the electoral votes by a wide margin.

The models show that the race IS NOT too close to call.


So cui bono from the too close to call narrative? Romney.

Who is Romney allied to in the deep state apparatus? The neocons.


Clearly, for whatever reasons, the MEDIA COOPERATES in this narrative by referencing certain polls.

Registered and Likely Voters
Historically, RV polls have closely matched the unadjusted exit polls after undecided voters are allocated and have been confirmed by the True Vote Model.
Likely Voter (LV) polls are a subset of Registered Voter polls and are excellent predictors of the recorded vote – which always understate the Democratic True Vote. One month prior to the election, the RV polls are replaced by LVs. An artificial “horse race” develops as the polls invariably tighten.
The Likely Voter Cutoff Model (LVCM) understates the voter turnout of millions of new Democrats, thereby increasing the projected Republican share. Democrats always do better in RV polls than in the LVs. Based on the historical record, the Democratic True Vote share is 4-5% higher than the LV polls indicate. The LVs anticipate the inevitable election fraud reduction in Obama’s estimated 55% True Vote share.
Media pundits and pollsters are paid to project the recorded vote – not the True Vote. The closer they are, the better they look. They never mention the fraud factor which gets them there, but they prepare for it by switching to LV polls.
The disinformation loop is closed when the unadjusted, pristine state and national exit polls are adjusted to match the LV recorded vote prediction.
They have it down to a science, a social engineering science. But the belief that the election is too close to call is not true. For whatever reasons, it looks like more people support Obama than Romney. That's just the way it is, and consequently, we should not be subjected to all sorts of DRAMA about the election being too close to call, when it is not.

What kinds of things would have to happen in order to flip the expected results.

The Boston Herald, a right-leaning paper, lists the things that could happen -- all the "nightmare" election scenarios, which seem to be the "new trend in American politics." http://bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/view.bg?articleid=1061172694&position=2

The razor-thin margin separating President Obama and Mitt Romney has conjured up a slew of nightmare election scenarios, ranging from a weeks-long wait amid calls for recounts and a tangle of legal challenges to a historic Electoral College tie that could give the GOP nominee the win — and Joe Biden, too.
“This could be drawn out and litigated,” said Boston University presidential historian Thomas Whalen, harking back to the 2000 election that needed a Supreme Court decision to put George W. Bush in office. “That seems to be the new trend in American politics.”

Except we see that the premise is faulty. There is not a razor-thin margin separating Obama and Romney. The razor-thin margin has been artificially constructed IN THE MEDIA by selecting Likely Voter polls which underestimate the Democrat turnout. But in order for the "nightmare" scenarios to have any chance of working, people must first believe in the razor-thin margin. It is a prerequisite condition. People on both sides of the political divide have to believe it in order for them to be continually divided.

So the Tavistock cycle of stress and relief and uncertainty can go on and on and on.

The media, the Drama Club, has done their role setting up the prerequisite conditions for people to believe that the election can go either way.


Behold the Deep State, in the shadows.
It cannot come into the light directly.
You will see it in what happens,
and in what does not happen.

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I'm not a video guy, but if it's possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more.
