The Occult Symbolism of the movie "Metropolis" and its Importance in Pop Culture

The Occult Symbolism of the movie “Metropolis” and its Importance in Pop Culture

Direct link to visually rich Vigilant Citizen – October 19, 2010

Fritz Lang’s 1927 movie “Metropolis” is one of those timeless classics that withstand the test of time. Rather than becoming forgotten and obsolete, “Metropolis” is increasingly relevant as many of its predictions are becoming reality. We will look at the  underlying occult message of the film and the usage of its imagery in the acts of  pop stars such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue and others.

 Metropolis is a silent science-fiction movie released in 1927 by Fritz Lang, a master of German Expressionism. Set in a futuristic dystopia divided into two distinct and separate classes—the thinkers and the workers—Metropolis describes the struggles between the two opposite entities. Knowing that it was produced in 1927, viewing this movie today is quite an experience as many “sci-fi” aspects of the plot are eerily close to reality. Metropolis describes a society where the “New World Order” has already taken been implemented and a select elite live in luxury while a dehumanized mass work and live in a highly monitored hell.

 As we have seen in previous articles on The Vigilant Citizen, Metropolis is excessively echoed in popular culture, especially in the music business. Whether it be in music videos or photo shoots, pop stars are often portrayed as the character Maria, an android programmed to corrupt the morals of the workers and to incite a revolt, giving the elite an excuse to use violence repression. Are pop stars used by the elite in the same matter, to corrode the morals of the masses?

Movie Analysis

The Workers

The movie opens by showing the workers and their city, situated deep below the earth’s surface. They are shown dressed alike, walking in sync, holding their heads down in submission, resignation and desperation. Throughout the movie, the human cattle is depicted as being physically and mentally exhausted, highly impressionable and, let’s say it, all-around dumb. Like a flock of sheep, the workers move in crowds, are very impressionable and can easily be deceived. This description of the masses corroborates those of Walter Lippmann, an American thinker who, five years earlier in Public Opinion, compared the general public to a “bewildered herd” that is not qualified to manage its own destiny. Joseph Goebbels, the head of propaganda of the Nazi regime, was also in accord with the movie’s conception of the general public. Hitler famously said “How fortunate for leaders that men do not think”.

The workers labor in a monstrous machine, a hellish industrial complex where they must accomplish repetitive and dehumanizing tasks. At one point, the machine is compared to Moloch, the ancient Semitic deity honored by human sacrifices.

 The tasks assumed by the workers are purely mechanical, needing absolutely no brain power, making them nothing more than an extension of the machine.

The Thinker s

If the workers live in a hellish underground dystopia, the thinkers conversely evolve in a gleaming utopia, a magnificent testimony of human achievement. This shiny city could not, however, be sustained without the existence of the Machine (Moloch) and its herds of workers. On the other hand, the Machine would not exist without the need to sustain a city. We find here a dualistic relation where two opposite entities exist in mutual dependence, a concept that has deep occult resonance.

 Joh Fredersen, the Demi-God

The city was founded, built and is run by the autocratic Joh Fredersen. As the creator and only ruler of Metropolis, Fredersen is likened to the Gnostic demiurge, a demi-god who is creator and ruler of the material world.

Joh’s son, named Freder, who, like all sons of managers, was enjoying a life of luxury, discovers the harsh reality of the workers of down under. Wanting to experience the worker’s reality first-hand, Freder descends to the lower level and trades places with a worker. Freder therefore becomes a Christ-like figure, a savior who descends from above. He also becomes enamoured with Maria, a saintly young women from the proletariat.


Maria is a charismatic woman that is highly admired by her fellow workers. Understanding their suffering and despair, and knowing that a revolt is brewing, Maria preaches peace and patience, prophesying the coming of a “mediator”, who would become the “heart between the head (the thinkers) and the hand (the workers)

At one point, Maria tells the story of the tower of Babel, upon which would be written:

“Great is the world and its Creator! And great is Man!”

This statement has a deep resonance in Mystery Schools as it is taught that men have the potential to become gods through enlightenment. Throughout the ages, monuments and architecture were used to communicate the principles of the Mysteries and to celebrate the greatness of the human mind. Partially for those reasons, there are numerous links between Freemasonry and the Tower of Babel.

 “As regards to Masonry, Babel of course represented a Masonic enterprise and early expositors reaped full benefit from the facts. They remembered that the people, who were of ‘one language and one speech’ journeyed from the East to the West, like those who have been tried and proved as Master Masons. When they reached an abiding place in the land Shinar, it is affirmed that they dwelt therein as Noachide, being the first characteristic name of Masons. It was here that they built their high tower of confusion. Out of evil comes good, however, and the confusion of tongues gave rise to ‘the ancient practice of Masons conversing without the use of speech.’”
-Arthur Edward Waite, A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: Their Rites, Literature and History, Volume I

 “In several early Masonic manuscripts – for example, the Harleian, Sloane, Lansdowne, and Edinburgh-Kilwinning – it is stated that the craft of initiated builders existed before the Deluge, and that its members were employed in the building of the Tower of Babel.”
– Manly P. Hall,
The Secret Teachings of All Ages

 “… at the making of the Tower of Babel there was Masonry first much esteemed of, and Nimrod was a Mason himself and loved well Masons.”
– John T Lawrence, The Perfect Ashlar

 However, says Maria, “one man’s hymns of praise became the other man’s curse”. In other words, the monument praising the greatness of the human spirit was built with the blood and sweat of workers who knew nothing of the Thinker’s grand vision. And, in the film, the same thing is happening all over again. The name of the demi-god Joh Fredersen’s headquarters? Of course … The New Tower of Babel.


Upon learning that the workers are planning an uprising, Joh Federsen seeks the advice of Rotwang, an inventor and mad scientist. Although his work utilizes the latest of technologies, many clues within the movie indicate that he also taps into ancient occult knowledge to create his inventions. He is said to live in “a small house overlooked by the centuries,” symbolically meaning that the scientist’s arcana descended from ancient occult traditions; the basement of his house has a secret trap door leading to 2,000 year-old catacombs, further alluding to the ancient and mysterious sources of Rotwang. Furthermore, the front door of his house bears a pentagram, which refers to the Pythagoreans, occultism and Freemasonry.

If we were to do real-life comparisons, Rotwang is to Joh Fredersen what John Dee was to Queen Elizabeth I: an esteemed advisor immersed in the worlds of science, magic, astrology and Hermetic philosophy. If Fredersen represents our world’s rulers, Rotwang is the occult pendant of decision-making, the mystical entity that is hidden from the public but always historically present.

The inventor proudly presents to Fredersen his latest invention, the Machine-Man, which he considers to be the “Man of the Future”. The android has the faculty of taking the form of any person and, says Rotwang, “no one will be able to tell a Machine Man from a mortal!”. The transhumanist dream was already present back in the early 1920s.

 Fredersen then tells Rotwang to give the Machine-Man the likeness of Maria in order to use her credibility and charisma to spread corruption among the workers.

 So what do today’s pop stars have in common with this android, programmed by the rulers, with a mix of science and occultism? Well … everything.

 Metropolis themes are also very prevalent in fashion.

 Back to the movie. The android completed, Rotwang tells it:

“I want you to visit those in the depths, in order to destroy the work of the woman in whose image you were created!”

Robot-maria responds: One eye closed with devilish grin. You probably know the importance of the single eye from previous articles and the ridiculous amount of pop artists who flash it.

 The Maria android is then sent to Yoshiwara, a man’s club, where she performs erotic dances. In one of her acts, she is portrayed as Babylon, the Great Harlot from the Apocalypse.

Playing the role of the Great Harlot Babylon of the Book of Revelation. “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, having a golden cup in her hand”. She is held up by the seven deadly sins.

Do this scene remind you of a classic music video? Madonna – Material Girl. How many realized that she was playing the role of Babylon here?

The programmed Maria performs mesmerizing dances in front of an avid public, causing men to fight, to lust, to be jealous and to commit the rest of the deadly sins. When she’s with her fellow workers,  Maria acts as an “agent-provocateur”, inciting the working men to riot and giving Joh Fredersen reason to use force against them. She is basically acting against the best interest of the public and for the interest of the elite.

With the help of their foreman (because they can’t really think for themselves), the workers ultimately realize that they have been mislead by the android. Believing that she’s a witch, they find robot-Maria and burn her at the stake.

 A bunch of things happen after that, but I won’t spoil the ending for you (though can you really be mad at someone for spoiling the ending of a 83-year old movie?). The movie finishes with this caption.

 This “moral of the story” is basically a message to the elite, a tip to keep the masses in check: in order to keep the oppressed content, you must capture their heart. That is what the media accomplish.

 Which is kind of reminiscent of this music video ending.

 Madonna’s Express Yourself video heavily borrowed its imagery from Metropolis. In turn, Christina Aguilera’s Not Myself Tonight, heavily borrowed from Express Yourself.

 The Moral of the Story

The moral of the story of Metropolis is not “let’s abolish all inequities and rebuild a world where everyone is equal” and it is certainly not “let’s be democratic and vote for who we want as a ruler.” It is more “let’s send the workers back to the depths where they belong, but with the addition of a mediator, who will be the link between the workers and the thinkers”. So, when all is said and done, the movie is intrinsically “elitist,” as it still calls for the existence of an elite group of people holding most of the resources and managing a working class. In the end, the workers – and Freder – were duped, believing that their conditions would change. In fact, the status-quo remained and Joh even got his naive son to give the elite a friendly image while reporting everything happening in the depths, resulting in tighter surveillance and control.

 Who is the Freder of today’s working class? The media. Media is the mediator. That is its function.

 Mass media manipulate the masses’ thoughts and feelings on a daily basis, tricking them into loving their oppression. Popular culture is the entertainment branch of mass media and pop music is the fun way to communicate the elite’s message to the youth. References to Metropolis in pop music are almost winks to those in the know, the initiates, as if to say “this star is working for us”. So go ahead and be an ignorant, degenerate and materialistic person, like in the videos … that’s what they want you to be.

Analogies Between Metropolis and Today’s Pop Culture

But why Metropolis? Why has it become the code for “Illuminati star”? If you’ve read other articles on this site, you’ve probably realized that the movie touches upon all of the themes of today’s “Illuminati agenda”: transhumanism, mind control, dark occultism, degradation of morals, police state, all-seeing government. Metropolis is basically a blueprint for population control. Like Maria, today’s pop stars are recruited from the working class and literally programmed and reinvented to become the hidden ruler’s spokespersons. Notice how many pop stars have wild alter-egos, with a different name and personality. Part of the stars’ role is to promote the elite’s agenda through music and videos, making it sexy and attractive.

In Conclusion

Metropolis is a definitely a movie “by the elite, for the elite”. It tackles the concerns of those managing the world and presents a solution that does not disturb the status-quo. The movie is also permeated with Masonic symbolism and contains many symbols referring to ancient Mysteries which were meant to be decoded by proper initiates. In other words, the movie was primarily aimed at the ruling class.

 So why do singers love it so much? Well they probably don’t love it as much as those behinds the scenes, the directors and image-makers, those who have power in the music business. They decide what the stars do and stand for. And today’s popular culture is elitist, permeated with Illuminati symbolism and promotes moral degradation and the debasement of traditional values. Our pop stars channel Maria, the programmed android, through their acts and accomplish the same functions. Why else would they dress like her? If artists always embodied absolute freedom and creativity, why do singers play the role of a mind-controlled android? Because that’s what they are.

 Metropolis is indeed a great movie. So great that it is only becoming relevant 80 years after its release. But if the elite have it their way, it will be even more relevant in the years to come.


Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

“A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires” (Paul Simon).
“The world is governed by far different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Benjamin Disraeli).
“Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws” (Mayer Rothschild).

Conspiracy theory is the theory that most of the world is secretly governed by a small group of men who operate behind the scenes. Conspiracy theory is now an accepted turn of phrase but sometimes one hears the expression, sometimes whispered rather than spoken. “The Illuminati”.

What does this mean? Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.

The pivotal family is probably the house of Rothschild, the descendants of Mayer Rothschild (1743 – 1812) of Frankfurt. The male descendants of this family, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. The family established banking institutions in Vienna, London, Naples and Paris as well as Frankfurt. Ever since the middle ages, these families have been building their power by lending money at rates of interest to the monarchies and governments of Europe who were forever in debt, particularly in times of war. Sooner than tax the population to raise funds, always an unpopular measure, they usually preferred to borrow money from the money-lenders. This was the birth of the concept “the national debt.” The countries of the world are forever in debt but where there is a debtor there is a creditor – who is this money owed to? It is owed to this coterie of international bankers.

By the nineteenth century the power of the Rothschild family was immense. They increased their wealth with great cunning and cleverness, while maintaining a low public profile. A notable example of their methods was their exploitation of the battle of Waterloo. The Rothschilds had spies watching the course of the battle and as soon as became evident that Wellington had won, a Rothschild agent traveled at maximum speed to London, arriving hours before Wellington’s own messenger. Rothschild received the messenger and began conspicuously selling his stocks. The whole stock exchange assumed that Wellington had lost and Napoleon had won so everybody started selling, at this point, other Rothschild agents bought up huge stocks at give-away prices. Thus an already massive fortune was massively increased.

The Rockefeller family may be equally important. The pivotal figure in this family was J.D.Rockefeller, who made his fortune out of Standard Oil or Esso in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also controlled the railroads. When rival road transport systems were established he attempted to block them by parking his trains across the roads at level crossings. His basic business technique was the elimination of competitors at all costs, followed by the establishment of a monopoly, followed by profit taking. He rapidly gained a name for huge wealth, secrecy and hard and dirty business practice. In his later years he had a harsh and gaunt appearance, so to counter his bad “public image” JD more or less invented the PR industry. He had short films of himself made, calculated to charm the public, himself playing golf with a pretty little child for instance. This film was shown on TV recently. It has a rather false and amateurish air but was very effective with the public of the day.

The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon (the world’s biggest company) and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week. With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean? Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?

Apparently in the name of Lucifer, the fallen angel also known as the bringer of light, hence the name “Illuminati”, which means “the enlightened ones”. Lucifer is also known for the characteristics of pride, deception and impermanence. The illuminati were apparently founded in Bavaria in 1770 by one Adam Weisshaupt, a student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelsohn, and backed by the Rothschild family. The society has always been based on the lodges of Freemasonry, which was taken over at the highest levels during the course of the eighteenth century by agents of the Illuminati. Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, to the extent that members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. Hence it is an organisation which is full of bonhomie and good deeds at the lower and middle levels, while its motives and deeds at the highest levels veer towards the dark side.

Both Freemasonry and Judaism have strong roots in the ancient Egyptian systems of religious belief, and it was this very similarity which attracted the illuminati to Freemasonry, for most of them were Jewish. It is a source of controversy today to speculate whether or not they are still predominantly Jewish. No unfair racism intended – they either are or they aren’t. Certainly there is much evidence to suggest that they are not, George Bush for instance, a prominent illuminati figure and obviously not Jewish.

The all seeing eye on the U.S. Dollar Bill

The United States of America is more or less a creation of Freemasonry. The symbol of Freemasonry was placed on the cornerstone of the Whitehouse, while the assembled Freemasons lodges stood and watched the ceremony. The famous all-seeing eye in the pyramid appears on the one dollar bill. It is one of the main symbols of Freemasonry. This bill also bears the inscription, in Latin, “1776, the year of inception of a new world order”. If one joins the dots formed by the stars of the thirteen original states one obtains an exact Star of David.

The goal of the IlIuminati is total control of the world. The only nations, which are holding out against their power, are some Islamic nations and China but this resistance is limited because the Illuminati have crushing economic power.

There are certain methods of subjugation and control which are indispensable to this power. The first is, of course, complete control over all financial systems, all borrowing and lending. All banks, all building societies, all insurance companies have to be under their control. At the lowest level even the smallest bank will be forced to toe the line. At the highest level the World Bank decides the fate of countries. It is an interesting and amazing fact that both the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England are controlled by these Illuminati dynasties, in spite of the names of these banks, which suggest that they are run for public benefit. It is said that both Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy wanted to change this system.

The second essential component is control of the media. It is controlled through business fashion. If the board meeting, or the management meeting, or the sales meeting, or the training meeting suggests that facts should be presented in a certain way, who is going to present them differently? There is an implied threat to one’s job and one’s career. Few people would gladly face demotion, retrenchment or the dole and most people are so ambitious they will do nearly anything “reasonable” to court favour with their superiors. This is how business is controlled and the media is the most important part of business, for it controls people’s minds. People are very suggestible and often lend more credence to what they see on “the box” than to what happens on their own street. The Illuminati know this and use this suggestibility factor to the full. Lenin’s key move during the Russian revolution was the capture of the radio station.

The third factor in the control system is the universities, and through them the whole education system. Particular effort is put into the schools of sociology, politics, economics and education, hence “liberal” systems of education which are often degenerate and even violent. Their men are inserted into the universities through the power of funding by big business. They then spread their influence downwards through tertiary to secondary and primary education.

The fourth factor is the enormous influence wielded by two similar organisations, The Council of Foreign Relations in the USA and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England. These institutions are schools for statesmen, Illuminati statesmen. They are the stamping grounds of men such as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Lord Carrington. These two “think tanks” have a crucial influence on all US and British governments, no matter which party is “in power”. The statesmen produced by these institutions can and do decide the fate of nations.The tax-exempt foundations are also instruments of Illuminati power. The Ford foundation and the Rockefeller foundation are two prominent examples of this type of “charitable” institution. They were heavily involved in supporting various communist powers when the cold war was at its height. Communism versus capitalism arms race = more money and power for the Illuminati. So these are some of the structures through which the Illuminati work but what methods do they use?

Pitting one side against the other, using a theory devised by Hegel, which is: Thesis versus antitheses – synthesis.

Every force tends to have an opposite counterforce. The conflict between the two results in a new situation, the synthesis. The illuminati make it their business to be the synthesis. Thus no problem situation is ever “nipped in the bud” it is rather fostered and used, just as the Soviet Union was fostered and used.

The insertion of immigrant groups into countries is a variation of this divide and rule process. Each group can be played off against the other.

“Double talk” and “double think”. George Orwell knew instinctively what was going on when he invented these two expressions:
I categorically deny = it will happen a bit later.
Peace = war by another means.

To say one thing and do another is fundamental to Illuminati practice. They believe that the public will accept these lies through laziness and wishful thinking. Unfortunately they are usually correct.

“Keep them busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals.” We are kept so busy with business (or busyness) that we do not understand or participate in the decisions and events that will crucially affect our future.

When a real power move is made it is usually done secretly and suddenly often with the pretence that nothing has happened. There is preparation for opposition, but conflict is often not necessary as most people have been trained to be so passive that they will probably not create an effective opposition.

Use of front men in important positions. These front men have the characteristic of “servile obedience”, probably because of a blot or blots on their character which they are anxious to conceal. Most of the Presidents of the USA fall into this category. The current situation springs to mind. Behind the opponent stands the man with real power, who has long been groomed for this position. Men like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Bush are in this category.

The assassination of opposing leaders as quietly and as secretly as possible, so as to simulate a natural death. If this is not possible due to time constraints or other limited circumstances, surrogates are used and the lines of suspicion are covered by deception, false accusation and if necessary, multiple assassinations. Induced heart attacks, fake motor accidents and apparent suicides are also favoured methods of assassination.

Social engineering. An easily manipulated rabble is what is required. Mixed population groups with weak morals, weak traditions, low educational standards and weak group willpower are the aim. Those with special aptitudes can be taken out and trained to serve the illuminati for technical purposes, security purposes or as part of the propaganda apparatus. The middle class will become surplus to requirements and will be reduced to relative poverty.

Mockery and submission of the manners and morals of societies which show any resistance. Control of the media, the fashion industries and the education systems are essential components in this strategy. “Free love”, the cult of youth, mockery of the Christian and Muslim faiths also fall into this category. “I don’t give a rats ass about Jesus Christ” is one recent masterpiece from one of Hollywood’s biggest starts. He probably didn’t realise what he was saying, which makes him a “useful idiot’. A “useful idiot” is much more effective than a conscious supporter. By these means of subversion societies and nations are conquered from within and open battle is usually not necessary.

The conduct of unrelenting economic warfare. This is the real war and continues even while the bombs are falling and the bullets are flying. The important part is the control of the enemy’s economy after the conflict. The recent economic crash in the far-eastern countries is in reality an assertion of the Illuminati’s economic power, an expression of economic dominance. The Illuminati now control 10-15% of the Japanese economy. This is public knowledge, that is what has been bought at bargain prices. In reality they probably control much more.

Control and exploitation of the standards of public health. The sale of prescription drugs is a huge business generating mega profits. Medical operations and treatments can also be very profitable to big business. These extreme treatments have their place but are over-used for the sake of profit.

In fact big business, particularly the big drug companies, have a vested interest in the ill health of the population. These companies, working through the US Food and Drug Administration, have tried to suppress the health food industry. In this they have largely failed but now the game is to own it and control it so that health foods can only be afforded by the elite.

Argument through defamation of character. The factual debate is ignored while characters are defamed. This is usually a very effective technique as many human beings are very suggestible and seem reluctant to use their reasoning abilities. Thus a “smear campaign” can easily draw attention away from the facts.

To conclude, it is growing increasingly evident that a world government is developing, and many would say that it is probably no bad thing, but few have asked for what purpose this “new world order” is created. Nor have they asked themselves what the consequences will be. These consequences (or some of them) will probably be as follows:

• Increasing profits for big business, increasing poverty for the middle class (who they despise). A rapid decline in moral standards and the promotion of social decay.

• Transience. Jobs that don’t last; neighbourhoods that don’t last.

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

• Decline and demise of public services; replacement by private enterprise – good service for the few who can afford it.

• Ongoing ill health for the bulk of the population because of stress; poor quality foods; food additives; genetic engineering; pollution and drugs. There may be good health for those who can afford it – only the rich and well informed.

• The gradual phasing out of national governments, which will have powers more like the regional governments of today.

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

In time a world leader will be announced, a real one this time. A pity he will have a cynical contempt for the most of humanity. Do we deserve it?

Calls Made To Ted Heath Child Sex Abuse Line

Sky News — August 4, 2015

A number of calls have been made to police appealing for potential victims of child sex abuse by Sir Edward Heath to come forward.

Officers investigating allegations made against the late Conservative Prime Minister have set up an inquiry line and said they wanted to “identify if there are any witnesses or victims” to “support allegations”.

It comes as details of further claims against Sir Edward started to emerge with claims he had been spotted at a property in north London where children were abused and allegations he was involved in the abuse of children at Jersey care homes.

Jersey Police confirmed the politician featured in its investigation into historic child sex abuse on the island, which the force says, includes allegations against 13 “people of public prominence”.

Allegations against Sir Edward were first disclosed yesterday when it emerged Wiltshire Police were being investigated for failing to properly handle an apparent allegation made against the politician in the 1990s.

A 65-year-old man has claimed he was raped by the then MP for Bexley at a Mayfair flat in 1961.

The man says he was picked up by Sir Edward on the A2 in north Kent as he hitched a lift and was taken back to the Park Lane apartment and raped.

However, he said, he was branded a “liar and a fantasist” when he initially reported the alleged assault.

Campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson confirmed he had heard allegations against Sir Edward and passed them to police.

He said: “I received information in 2012 concerning allegations of child abuse carried out by Edward Heath and a separate claim concerning Heath was made to me subsequently.

“I passed them both to the police, who have confirmed to me that at least one of those allegations is being investigated and taken seriously.”

Another Labour MP, Simon Danczuk, told Sky News he had spoken to a former Metropolitan Police detective who had told him he had seen Sir Edward going into a north London flat where boys were being abused.

Mr Watson has called for a central child sex abuse investigation unit for the country to be set up to speed up investigations.

A US Newsweek reporter Leah McGrath Goodman disclosed on Monday night she was removed from the UK for investigating child sex abuse claims against Sir Edward on Jersey in 2011.

She told LBC Radio: “Ted Heath was one of the more prominent allegations. He enjoyed using his yacht, and would come to the island frequently.

“He would take children from care homes for a ride on the yacht and it was reported that some never came back.”

She claimed he had been to a home “frequented” by Jimmy Savile. The late TV presenter has been accused of abusing children at the Haut de la Garenne children’s home, which was the centre of the biggest investigation into historic child sex abuse on the island.

Ms Goodman said: “I know the police received reports. I have looked into the records from the home. The children were loaned out. Sometimes they would come back – sometimes they would not.”

Sir Edward, who was PM for four years in the 1970s, is the highest-profile figure to be named in historical abuse allegations against prominent figures.

The independent inquiry into claims public bodies failed to act or attempted to cover up claims against senior politicians has been told by David Cameron there are no limits to their investigations and officers should “go as high as they like”.

Lord Armstrong of Ilminster, Sir Edward’s former principle private secretary, told Sky News all the allegations were “absolute nonsense.”

The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation said: “We welcome the investigation by Wiltshire Police, which we wholeheartedly believe will clear Sir Edward’s name and we will co-operate fully with the police in their inquiries.”

Sir Edward, who led the Conservative government between 1970 and 1974, never married and kept his private life under wraps.

He died at his home in Salisbury aged 89 in July 2005.


Iran’s Ahmadinejad aims for comeback in challenge to moderates behind nuclear deal

Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a political campaign ahead of February’s parliamentary elections in what could prove a challenge to the moderates behind a landmark nuclear agreement reached last month.

Few expect a rerun of Ahmadinejad’s surprise victory in the 2005 elections, which kicked off an eight-year presidency marked by confrontation with the West, incendiary rhetoric toward Israel and refusal to compromise on the disputed nuclear program. Many former allies have turned on Ahmadinejad, and two of his former vice presidents have been jailed for corruption.

But the unapologetic populist is believed to command strong support in the countryside, and could be seen by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as a counterbalance to the reformers who have tried to reverse Ahmadinejad’s confrontational legacy since the election of President Hassan Rouhani, a moderate, two years ago.

At a gathering of his supporters Thursday, Ahmadinejad, 58, broke two years of silence, vowing to “redefine revolutionary ideals” laid out by the leader of Iran’s 1979 revolution, the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

“God willing, victory and a very bright future awaits us. However, there will be bumps and satanic obstacles in our path,” the diminutive former leader, sporting his trademark close-cropped beard and sports coat, told some 400 supporters in Tehran. “One should not forget that the U.S. is our enemy.”

He called on his supporters to “begin working energetically in the provinces.” He remains popular among the rural poor because of his government’s decision to provide monthly cash handouts after cutting food and energy subsidies, and because of his condemnation of capitalism and injustice. During his presidency he received thousands of letters a day from ordinary Iranians, and earlier this week people lined up outside his Tehran residence to ask for assistance, a reflection of his populist touch.

But many middle and upper class Iranians, even in small towns, blame the crippling international sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program on his bombastic anti-Western rhetoric. And the current government is in the process of removing millions of wealthy citizens from the welfare rolls to ease a budget crisis caused in part by the sanctions and plunging oil prices.

Ahmadinejad has not commented on the nuclear deal, which would lift painful international sanctions in return for Iran curbing its nuclear activities. He could do little to derail the agreement, particularly if it enjoys the support of the supreme leader. But a strong showing by Ahmadinejad’s supporters in February’s election could hinder any push for a broader rapprochement between Iran and the United States, and lay the groundwork for his return to the presidency.

Former Deputy Foreign Minister Sadeq Kharrazi, a reformist politician, said Ahmadinejad’s political career is over but that “Ahmadinejadism” — his unique melding of economic populism with a hawkish foreign policy — remains a “threat to the country.”

In the absence of reliable polling, it’s impossible to gauge Ahmadinejad’s level of support. Any comeback would depend on Khamenei, who along with his hand-picked appointees vets candidates for parliamentary and presidential elections.

“The key is the ruling system’s decision on how to deal with Ahmadinejad,” political analyst Saeed Leilaz said.

“He can’t reappear without approval from the top echelons of power,” he added. “His comeback means Khamenei wants to use him as a counterbalance to control reformists in the upcoming elections.”


Man accuses Sir Edward Heath of raping him as a boy

A man has claimed he was raped aged 12 by Sir Edward Heath, as police urge potential victims of the former prime minister to come forward.

An inquiry has been launched into an alleged cover-up of child sex allegations, amid claims that a prosecution against an individual was shelved after a threat was made to ”expose” the Conservative politician.

Sir Edward, who was prime minister for four years in the 1970s, is the highest-profile figure to be embroiled in historic abuse allegations against prominent figures.

His accuser has claimed he was abused in 1961 in London’s Mayfair while Heath was an MP.

In a letter to his solicitors, he wrote: “I don’t know how the conversation got round to sex. After having a shower he said that he only had one bedroom and that if I was OK with that I could share his bed.”

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is looking into whether Wiltshire Police followed up a claim against Sir Edward, which was made in the 1990s.

A woman who was in charge of a brothel had been due to stand trial but said she would expose the top politician, according to reports.

It is claimed that the woman was arrested in the 1990s for running a vice den and was due to stand trial fort her crimes but, it is alleged, senior police officers intervened to protect her.

A retired detective reportedly came forward in June last year to claim that the allegations against Heath were never properly investigated.

Meanwhile an alleged victim, now aged in his 60s, has claimed he reported being sexually assaulted by the Conservative MP in 1961 but was branded ”a liar and a fantasist”.

The boy, who claimed to have been abused throughout his childhood by his father and his paedophile friends, said Sir Edward picked him up along the A2 road in north Kent as he hitched a lift.

He claimed to have gone back to an apartment in Park Lane, London where he was raped, the Daily Mirror reported.

It was not until 1965 that he realised who his abuser was, recognising him from a picture in a newspaper in which Sir Edward was standing beside Margaret Thatcher.

In statements to his legal team reported in the newspaper he said: ”I learned that he was MP for Bexley. This answered a lot of questions as to why no-one believed me about the London saga. I got called a liar and a fantasist.”

The Metropolitan Police declined to comment on the claims.

Wiltshire Police have appealed for potential victims of Sir Edward to come forward, after launching an inquiry on the back of allegations made by a retired senior officer.

Superintendent Sean Memory of Wiltshire Police said: ”The allegation is that a trial was due to take place in the 1990s and information was received in that trial that Sir Ted Heath was involved in the abuse of children and the allegation is from the result of that information that the trial never took place.

”A retired senior police officer has come forward towards the end of 2014 indicating that they were aware of this information.

”This is an appeal for victims in particular. If you have been the victim of any crime from Sir Ted Heath or any historical sexual offence, or you are a witness or you have any information about this, then please come forward.”

Wiltshire Police said Sir Edward ”lived in Salisbury for many years”.

It said: ”We would like to hear from anyone who has any relevant information that may assist us in our inquiries or anyone who believes they may have been a victim.”

An IPCC spokesman said it will investigate allegations concerning the force’s handling of an ”alleged claim of child sexual abuse made in the 1990s”.

He added: ”It is alleged that a criminal prosecution was not pursued when a person threatened to expose that Sir Edward Heath may have been involved in offences concerning children.

”In addition to this allegation, the IPCC will examine whether Wiltshire Police subsequently took any steps to investigate these claims.”

Labour MP Tom Watson claimed he received information relating to allegations of child abuse involving Sir Edward in 2012.

He added: ”A separate claim concerning Heath was made to me subsequently.

”I passed them both to the police, who have confirmed to me that at least one of those allegations is being investigated and taken seriously.”

The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation said: ”We welcome the investigation by Wiltshire Police, which we wholeheartedly believe will clear Sir Edward’s name and we will co-operate fully with the police in their inquiries.”

Sir Edward, who led the Conservative government between 1970 and 1974, never married and was famously reticent about his private life.

One biographer concluded that he may have been a latent or repressed homosexual while another thought he was ”pretty well sexless”.

Away from politics he was noted for his enthusiasm for sailing and classical music.

Sir Edward died at home in Salisbury aged 89 in July 2005.


BBC forced out team behind Savile exposé, says ex-Newsnight journalist

Jasp Jackson — The Guardian July 29, 2015

Meirion Jones

Meirion Jones: claims he was told he would ‘would never work for the BBC again’ if he co-operated with a Panorama investigation into the corporation’s handling of the Savile scandal.

BBC journalists will be afraid of speaking out about the next big BBC scandal after seeing how those who tried to expose Jimmy Savile were forced out, according to the former head of investigations at Newsnight.

Merion Jones said the way he and other journalists who complained about the way the BBC handled the scandal were pressured to leave.

He said: “We were told at the time that you won’t be sacked, but over a year or two years you’ll realise you are being treated as an outsider, that you will never be trusted because you blew the whistle, and you will find yourself leaving,” he said. “I didn’t believe that, but I started watching what was going around me.

“I think journalists will be afraid of speaking out. This isn’t ancient history, I left in February. It looks like no lessons have been learnt.”

Jones earlier told Press Gazette that those who tried to expose the handling of the case were seen as “traitors” while executives who tried to suppress the scandal had continued their careers unhindered.

“Everyone involved on the right side of the Savile argument has been forced out of the BBC,” he said.

“There is still sadly a small group of people at the BBC who think that the only problem with Savile was that it was exposed and if it had stayed hushed up, everything would be fine.”

Jones’s investigation into Savile was pulled by the then Newsnight editor Peter Rippon in December 2011, just weeks before a tribute to the presenter – who is thought to have abused hundreds of children over decades – was broadcast.

Jones said he was told by an employment lawyer that if he sued the BBC, he would win and there would be “no cap on it because it will be a whistleblower case”, but the corporation would fight the case for at least a year before settling. Instead, Jones said he decided to take voluntary redundancy.

Among those who Jones says were also targeted by bosses over Savile included his colleague on the the investigation, Liz Mackean, who left after 23 years with the corporation in April 2014 and now works on Channel 4’s Dispatches.

Mackean told Press Gazette: “I didn’t feel encouraged to stay. I felt I would do better to work outside the BBC.”

Jones and Mackean gave evidence to the Pollard inquiry, which found that “rigid management chains” meant the BBC proved “completely incapable”of handling the Savile case. However, it decided Rippon’s decision to pull the Newsnight investigation was “done in good faith” without undue pressure from senior management.

Jones says he and Mackean were told they “would never work for the BBC again” if they co-operated with a Panorama investigation into the scandal called What the BBC Knew. “Lots of efforts were made to block that Panorama,” he added.

He says the editor behind the programme, Tom Giles, and the executive put in charge of Savile coverage, Peter Horrocks, who forced it through, were also subsequently squeezed out.

Giles was shifted to a strategy role in May last year and left to become head of ITV current affairs a year later. Horrocks left the BBC earlier this year to become vice-chancellor of the Open University.

Jones also said the way the BBC treated one of Savile’s original accusers, Karin Ward, when she was sued by Freddie Starr over comments she made on BBC and ITV, showed how the corporation was prepared to leave whistleblowers out to dry. Ward did not receive any legal support from the BBC until the eve of her trial, which she eventually won.

“It’s an extraordinary thing for the BBC not to support a whistleblower who had appeared on a BBC programme,” said Jones. “That’s unprecedented as far as I know.”

“If I was a whistleblower, I would not go to the BBC now unless they announce a big change in their policy.”

A BBC spokesman said: “Meirion Jones has made his views known before and we have always been clear that nobody was forced out of the BBC for exposing the Savile scandal.

“The Pollard report concluded, following a detailed investigation, that the decision to drop the initial investigation into Jimmy Savile was taken in good faith and not for any improper reason.”

The publication of the independent investigation into sexual abuse at the BBC overseen by Dame Janet Smith was indefinitely delayed in May after police said it could prejudice ongoing investigations.


Dreaming of the Beautiful Islands in the Sun

Reflections in a Petri Dish — August 4, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there and just because you can doesn’t mean it is.
Every now and then some of those moments comes around and you segue off into one of those exits of the imagination and you find page after page of impossible reaches into some dreamscape. We’re all searching for some sort of serenity. We get the idea it must be, ‘out there’ somehow but… it’s not. It could be out there but you’d have to bring ‘in there’ along because otherwise you get reminded all the time about something vague and undefined that’s missing.
It’s not all that hard to understand the fascination of money, when it can land you in some sparkling oasis, somewhere far away from everything else, in the Caribbean, the South Pacific… the world’s clutter is nearly everywhere you go. It’s also flammable. The combustibility of the material plane is not in doubt. California is burning right now. In the burgeoning urban wastelands, all manner of fiery circumstance is smoldering beneath the paint rags in the corner of that dark basement, that sits beneath all the gaudy Hollywood fronts up top. Some of the fronts are not so gaudy. They are in serious disarray, a kind of torn and tattered dishabille, of disharmonious and threatening cityscapes, filled with brutalized and boarded up buidings and long narrow shadows that move in synchronicity with the deadly disenfranchised of the American nightmare. From Chicago to Baltimore and curling around like the Fingers of Sauron reaching along the super highways to East St. Louis and beyond, reaching on to the low rider Hells of Riverside and everywhere that the psychopathic social experiments of the self styled elite are having their moments of disorder, before desert gets served; some kind of flambe, I’m guessing.
It is a fitting irony that all that intensifying desire and the frustrations of unreachable objects and objectives, would begin to experience spontaneous combustions because of the pressure of millions of bodies, pressing up against each other in  a writhing and twisting frenzy of misdirected need and greed. They aren’t getting anything and they aren’t going anywhere, except back and forth from the apartment to the treadmill. The favored, of course, will have a better success rate. They’ll be knocking them back at those watering holes of privilege, rubbing each other on the back with that ‘hail fellow, well met’ thing, there amidst all of the other slithering snakes of quid pro quo.
Around the world the desperate wanting festers in massive population zones like Karachi, Mexico City, Bejing. You can’t know what it’s like unless you’ve been there. In Mexico City, packs of feral and ravenous dogs eat the unwary.
Because the system is based on separations of class, determined by the fortunes of birth and association, it eventually results in too few in possession of too much and too many in possession of nothing at all. Everything functions, when it functions, on the principle of balance. As long as some balance is retained, some semblance of order exists. This is not to say that justice plays any part in it. This is only to say that as long as balance is greater than imbalance, there is the appearance of some kind of sustainable routine.
In Iraq, the children bear radioactive water home in abandoned Jerry cans and whatever containers they can find. Anti personnel mines and cluster bombs blow up at random intervals, attended by blasted limbs, twisting in the air for a moment, until they land somewhere in the poisoned dust. I close my eyes and see some private island, winking in a turquoise sea. It does not wait there for me. It waits for those who have skimmed and scammed the finances necessary to acquire them. They are a breed apart. I don’t know these people, our lives are so very, very different but… my life is nowhere near as bad as some already mentioned here.
During the horrible Iraq/Iran war with all that poison gas and the millions who went down in the conflict, the rats grew to be up to 26 pounds. There was so much to eat. It was a never ending vermin banquet. Far away from most of us, human tragedies of epic proportion take place and we barely hear about them. East Timor was nothing more than a speed bump on the way to some dark Rothschild Rio Tinto fantasy
Today, in The Congo, Coltan Fever is epidemic. The conditions are a complexity of bandit hordes, killing with impunity. Before that was Rwanda and all over the dark continent, darkness is in a full blown sway over the flyblown landscape. At the heart of it all is the lust for resources in western culture. Let us not forget The Sudan. It’s hard to imagine the reality of what takes place in these locations. It’s not just Africa. It’s all over the place and because of what is happening there and in countries near about, there is a swarm of refugees taking every imaginable risk, in order to reach some point of safety and I dream about some unattainable island in the Caribbean, when I am already on an island and though my circumstances are generally more iffy than stable, they are nothing like the unfortunate state of so many others. Uncertainty and dire impoverishment might threaten me but neither have actually knocked on the door yet.
I’ve dreamed of these islands for many years; something intensely private and mostly deserted. I think it is more of an inner world that one sometimes visits in dreams, more so than in reality. I’ve lived in the Caribbean. I lived for months on a beach on Andros Island; the least populated and largest island in the Bahamas chain. When I was there it was primitive and desolate. There were towns that were a little more than ten miles apart and people in one town that had never been to the other in their whole lives. I lived with my girlfriend in a tent on the beach where I also built one of those tropical structures out of palm fronds and bamboo, or whatever it was. It was a glorious period and maybe it is the memory of that that keeps returning to my mind but… as I said, maybe it’s just an interior place yet to be opened for residence because I have it right here already, sort of. Of course… there is a lot of that materialism here but you can’t see it from my driveway and you got to drive for awhile before you get there.
In the war torn regions the idea of materialism is their own dream of islands. This is understandable when you are hungry and poor and live under the threat of death and worse at all times and where there is litle in the way of health care and a great deal in the way of pestilence. Follow the money and you know who is responsible for these things and those responsible don’t live there. They live in London and New York, Brussels and Tel Aviv. They are the bankers who print the currencies and they are all the rest of them who live in pursuit of the currency. They are monsters and a sizable portion of them are Ashkenazi Klingons birthed from the hemorrhoidal regions at the ass end of the universe and they have come here because this is their time. Certain lifeforms prosper in certain environmental climates.
Well… I didn’t stay long studying those islands. I’m back here now, on my own island, which is itself on an island, far out in the Pacific and about as far away from anything else as you can get, which is certainly a part of its charm. When the system collapses this will not be the easiest place to get to.
I suppose what I am writing about today is to count your blessings. Never forget all of what is taking place outside of your sight line. Live in comparative awareness and be grateful. Be very, very grateful.
End Transmission…….
I’ll try to get that radio broadcast up for those of you with any interest. Revisit this space later for a link.


Apocalpytic Heat Wave Nearly Breaks World Record

Ari Yashar — Aretz Sheva August 3, 2015

The Met Office has predicted it could be another five years before surface temperatures begin to rise again, but said the current "pause" would not affect long-term global warming forecasts. Click to enlargeOn the same weekend in which it threatened to “annihilate” Israel following the nuclear deal it struck with global powers, Iran experienced a mind-boggling 164 degrees (73 Celsius) heat index reading last Friday, in what some might see as a warning by the Almighty Himself that all options are on the table.

The heat index, also know as the “feels-like” temperature, combines air temperature and humidity to give an accurate reading as to how the human body perceives the relative temperature.

As Iran entered the current heat wave breaking on the Middle East last Thursday, temperatures at the Manshahr Airport in southwest Iran’s Bandar Mahshahr, home to over 100,000 people, hit 109 degrees (43 Celsius) with a dewpoint of 90 degrees (32 Celsius). Those figures compute out to an incredible 159 degrees (70 Celsius).

But it got even hotter on Friday, with the Weather Channel reporting that the same site reached 114.8 degrees (46 Celsius) and a dew point of 89.6 degrees (32 Celsius), yielding an inhuman 164 degrees (73 Celsius).

Meteorological experts said Iran is experiencing some of the hottest temperatures “ever endured by humankind.”

“That was one of the most incredible temperature observations I have ever seen, and it is one of the most extreme readings ever in the world,” AccuWeather meteorologist Anthony Saglia told The Telegraph.

Iran’s heat index last Friday nearly broke a world record, coming within a few degrees of the 2003 heat index record in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, which was a suffocating 178 degrees (81 Celsius).

Putting aside the heat index, the highest recorded temperature in all of Asia was actually experienced in Israel’s Tirat Tzvi back on June 21, 1942, during the days of the Holocaust, when the temperature hit 129 degrees (54 Celsius). However, the Weather Channel casts doubt on the accuracy of that record, and lists Kuwait’s scorching 128.5 degrees (53.6 Celsius) in 2012 as the record.

Kuwait nearly matched that record again last Thursday, when it hit 127 degrees (52.8 Celsius) in Mitribah.

The rising temperatures are part of a regional “heat dome,” a type of high pressure ridge that is causing soaring temperatures and is expected to last several days.

Iraq has also been coming in for a pounding, and on Sunday it was expected to hit over 120 degrees (49 Celsius) for the eight day in a row.

Iraq’s government last Thursday took the desperate measure of instituting a four-day holiday so that citizens can take shelter at home and stay out of the sizzling sun.

Baghdad on Saturday hit its four consecutive day over 120 degrees, and has been over 100 degrees (37.8 Celsius) every day since all the way back to May 30.

Temperatures in Israel are ranging between 90 degrees (32 Celsius) in the country’s center, to 114 (46C) in Eilat and 113 (45C) near the Sea of Galilee.


The Satanic Temple Unveils a Massive Statue of Baphomet in Detroit

VC — Vigilant Citizen August 3, 2015

The unveiling of the 9-feet tall and 1.5 ton statue of Baphomet took place in Detroit and was dubbed “largest satanic event in History”.
On July 26th, the Satanic Temple unveiled a massive bronze statue of Baphomet sitting on a throne, complete with two children look up to him in admiration. The unveiling took place in an industrial building near Detroit River after attempts to have it installed near a Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol have failed.
The caduceus on Baphomet’s lap is meant to represent an erect phallus. Combined with the two children looking up to him, this statue is a true nod to the occult elite’s favorite obsessions.

The unveiling was preceded by an event which gathered several hundred guests. Before entering the premises, guests were required to sign a contract “selling their soul to the Devil” – which was also a way of keeping protestors at bay. Attendees celebrated under red lights cheering “Hail Satan,” as bands and DJs performed on a stage beneath a big, red inverted cross. Officials of The Satanic Temple delivered speeches alongside a pair of shirtless men who held candles on both sides of the bronze statue.

Topless Twist in War on Gender — August 3, 2015

topless_protestThese young airheads are campaigning for the right to go topless in public. Women like them march in “slutwalks” to normalize dressing like streetwalkers.
Both campaigns advance an ongoing satanist objective of turning nature on its head. By flouting natural heterosexual reactions and standards, they undermine marriage and gender. Tom Bothwell shows the absurdity of their argument woman should go bare chested if men can.

By Tom Bothwell — (

For several days now, the top story on has been about women going topless in public: “Rally in support of women’s right to go topless takes place in Waterloo, Ont.”
The protest in question was organized by the Mohamed sisters who, while biking topless a little over a week ago, were stopped by a male police officer and told that the law requires them to cover up.
The officer was in error. Women going topless in public has been ‘legal’ in Ontario ever since 1996 when Gwen Jacob, who had been charged with indecency for doing just that, was acquitted by the Ontario Court of Appeal. The judge ruled that baring one’s breasts was not a sexual act or indecent and that it did not exceed the ‘community standard of tolerance’.
The legalization of public toplessness was, of course, largely a feminist goal and was argued for on the grounds of ‘equality’. If men are allowed to go shirtless in public outdoor spaces, then women should be permitted to go topless as well!

Sources: Terrorists in Syria Receive Cargo of Chemical Substances

Fars News Agency — August 3, 2015

The terrorists in Syria have received hazardous chemical substances loaded in trucks crossing the borders from neighboring Jordan, local Syrian sources disclosed on Monday.

“The Takfiri terrorist groups have received dangerous chemicals in trucks which crossed Jordan into Syria through Nasib border crossing,” the Syrian sources said.

The local sources also revealed that the hazardous chemical substances included chlorine agent.

In April 2014, the foreign-backed militants fired mortar shells, containing poisonous chemical substances, on several residential areas in the city of Homs.

The terrorists attacked the cities of Al-Sabil and Al-Zahra districts in Homs with mortar rounds containing poisonous chlorine agent.

Chlorine gas, which was widely used during World War I, can be deadly.

In late August 2013, rebels and local residents in Ghouta in Damascus countryside accused the then Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, of providing chemical weapons to an al-Qaeda linked rebel group.

Interviews with people in Damascus and Ghouta, a suburb of the Syrian capital, where the humanitarian agency Doctors Without Borders said at least 355 people had died in late August from what it believed to be a neurotoxic agent, appear to indicate as much, said in a report written by Dale Gavlak and Yahya Ababneh.

From numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerged. Many believed that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.

“My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” said Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of a rebel fighting to unseat President Assad, who lives in Ghouta.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and 12 other rebels were killed inside of a tunnel used to store weapons provided by a Saudi militant, known as Abu Ayesha, who was leading a fighting battalion. The father described the weapons as having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas bottle.”

Ghouta townspeople said the rebels were using mosques and private houses to sleep while storing their weapons in tunnels.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and the others died during the chemical weapons attack. That same day, the militant group Jabhat al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front), which is the al-Qaeda’s arm in Syria, announced that it would similarly attack civilians in the Assad regime’s heartland of Latakia on Syria’s western coast, in purported retaliation.

“They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them,” complained a female fighter named ‘K.’ “We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

“When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them,” she warned. She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.

A well-known rebel leader in Ghouta named ‘J’ agreed. “Jabhat al-Nusra militants do not cooperate with other rebels, except with fighting on the ground. They do not share secret information. They merely used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate this material,” he said.

“We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” ‘J’ said.

Doctors who treated the chemical weapons attack victims cautioned interviewers to be careful about asking questions regarding who, exactly, was responsible for the deadly assault.

The humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders added that health workers aiding 3,600 patients also reported experiencing similar symptoms, including frothing at the mouth, respiratory distress, convulsions and blurry vision. The group has not been able to independently verify the information.

More than a dozen rebels interviewed reported that their salaries came from the Saudi government.

Obama Authorizes Airstrikes to Defend Syrian Rebels If Attacked

Introduction — August 3, 2015

So-called “Syrian rebels” have had ambivalent relations with Islamic State extremists. Far from fighting Sunni extremists, “moderate Syrian rebels” were previously reported to have struck a truce with them.
According to Reuters, Sunni extremists and Syrian rebels had agreed to focus their efforts on fighting the forces of Syrian President Assad rather than each other.
So whence this sudden turn-around? Or is this just another ruse in the U.S. use of proxies to oust President Assad?
The giveaway actually came last September in a Global Research article, in which Patrick Henningson claimed the U.S. was planning to use air strikes against ISIS as a pretext to provide air support for Syrian rebels to hit Syrian government forces.
So step by incremental step the U.S. appears to be being drawn into more direct military involvement in the conflict in Syria. Ed

Obama Authorizes Airstrikes to Defend Syrian Rebels If Attacked

President Barack Obama has authorized the use of air power to defend U.S.-trained Syrian rebels if they come under attack from terrorist groups or the Assad regime, deepening the U.S. role against Islamic State forces in Syria.

The broader U.S. rules of engagement, approved July 31, came after rebels fighting Islamic State were attacked by the al-Nusrah Front, an al-Qaeda offshoot, in northern Syria, a U.S. defense official said. The U.S. provided close air support to protect the rebels and quash the attack, he said.

While airstrikes remain limited to Islamic State targets for offensive operations, they can now be used to defend U.S. allies on the ground in Syria, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations.

The official discounted the risk of a U.S. confrontation with the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, should he choose to attack any American-trained forces on the ground. The U.S.-trained rebels, who number about 60, have pledged to fight only Islamic State, not the Assad government, and Assad must focus on other threats to his regime, the official said.

Alistair Baskey, a National Security Council spokesman, said U.S.-trained rebels “are being provided with a wide range of coalition support” that includes defensive strikes.

While declining to discuss the specific rules of engagement, Baskey said the administration has “said all along that we would take the steps necessary to ensure that these forces could successfully carry out their mission.”

Obama’s move was first reported Sunday by the Wall Street Journal.

Incirlik Accord

The new rules follow an agreement reached in July with Turkey that allows U.S. forces to use Turkey’s Incirlik airbase to launch airstrikes in Syria. Turkey has sought U.S. assurances that it would protect allied ground forces, although the defense official said the new rules had no connection to the Incirlik accord.

Republicans in Congress, led by Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, an Arizona Republican, have pushed the administration for months to assure Syrian rebels that the U.S. would come to their defense if needed in the fight against Islamic State.

The Pentagon had planned from the beginning to provide such defense, but took time to work out the details because of the slow start to the rebel training program, the official said.

The U.S. had hoped to train 3,000 Syrian rebels by the end of this year, Brett McGurk, the deputy special presidential envoy for the coalition against Islamic State, said in May. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told Congress in July that only 60 had been trained so far.

Smaller Number

“This number is much smaller than we hoped for at this point,” Carter told the Senate Armed Services Committee on July 7, attributing the delay to U.S. screening standards for the Syrian fighters.

Obama, who has ruled out sending U.S. ground troops into combat in Syria or Iraq, is counting on defeating Islamic State fighters through local forces on the ground, bolstered by U.S. and allied airstrikes. The U.S. and allies have conducted more than 5,000 airstrikes over the past year in Iraq and Syria against Islamic State, a radical Sunni group that declared a self-styled caliphate, or religious state.


Migrant flow is result of US, EU military ops in Middle East – Czech president

Russia Today — August 3, 2015

The flow of immigrants to Europe stems from the Western states’ military interventions in Iraq, Libya and Syria, which have contributed to the emergence of terrorist groups in the Middle East, Czech President Milosh Zeman told local media.

“The current wave of migration [to Europe] is rooted in the crazy [US] idea to launch an intervention in Iraq, which allegedly had weapons of mass destruction, but nothing was found,” Zeman said in a video interview  with the Czech Repubic’s Blesk newspaper published on Sunday.

On top of this, the US’ desire to “restore order” in Libya and Syria only resulted in the escalation of conflicts in both countries and the emergence of terrorist organizations, prompting people to flee the area, Zeman said.

He added that not only the US was to blame for the migrant chaos, but its Western allies that helped to “coordinate operations in Libya” as well.

He announced his intention to speak at the regular session of the UN General Assembly later this year and propose that the UN create military units to destroy terrorist training camps.

Zeman also lashed out at immigrants on Sunday after tensions at a refugee detention center in the Czech Republic’s northeast prompted police to use tear gas. About 100 illegal immigrants waiting for deportation staged a demonstration on Friday, damaging the building of the center, according to local authorities.

“No one invited you here. But now you are here, you must respect our rules, as we respect the rules when we go to your country,” the president said.

According to police, 3,018 illegal migrants have been intercepted by Czech law enforcement so far in 2015. The figure is almost 50% higher than in the first half of 2014.

Meanwhile, late on Saturday, about two hundred migrants, according to AP estimates, once again stormed the Eurotunnel terminal near the French port town of Calais in a bid to reach the UK. Police reportedly stopped the crowd by using a chemical irritant. More than a hundred attempts to enter the tunnel have been documented by security forces in this week alone. A man was fatally hit by a truck during one of attempts.

The chaos in Calais, where thousands of migrants have been making nightly attempts to access the Eurotunnel terminal, has shown “a system that is breaking down,” Morgan Johansson, the Swedish justice and migration minister, told BBC Radio 4’s World This Weekend.

He accused Britain of failing to “take the responsibility that they should,” and criticized Prime Minister David Cameron for the wording he uses with regard to migrants.

“I hear what he is saying about ‘illegal immigrants’ and ‘swarms’ and I think he is trying to divide people, that that is not a constructive way.”

The refugee camp set up near Calais, dubbed the “Jungle,” houses up to 10,000 immigrants. Xavier Bertrand, French MP and mayor of the northern city of Saint-Quentin, who is familiar with the situation, told RT the conditions at the camp “are severe.”

British Home Secretary Theresa May and French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve have stressed that resolving the crisis and stopping the flow of immigrants is their “top priority,” Britain’s Sunday Telegraph and France’s Journal du Dimanche reported. The two top officials also urged to the EU to “address this problem at root.”

“We must break the link between crossing the Mediterranean and achieving settlement in Europe for economic reasons,” they added.

Under the Le Touquet treaty signed in 2003, the British border was moved to French Calais and British border control was stationed at French ferry terminals. This was done as part of an effort to close the infamous Sangatte refugee camp and stop the flow of illegal immigrants from reaching the UK to claim asylum.

French officials have made calls to scrap the agreement and move the border back to Dover and Folkestone. No official steps, however, have yet been taken.

In 2014, the UK received 31,400 asylum applications, while 63,100 were submitted to France and 81,300 to Sweden, according to data provided by the British Red Cross.


Illustrious Jewish roots of Tory leader revealed

Introduction — August 2, 2015

David CameronWhen David Cameron told the Jewish Chronicle in 2007 that “my values are yours”, the then leader of the opposition was understating things.
By the time he was prime minister in 2012, David Cameron probably felt secure enough in power to openly acknowledge his allegiance to Zionism. Although, of course, he didn’t do so quite so bluntly. Nonetheless, in a speech to the United Jewish Israel Appeal the British prime minister reaffirmed his commitment to Zionist power.
A closer look at his family background reveals why he is such an ardent and unquestioning advocate. Quite literally, it’s in David Cameron’s blood. Apart from usury, Cameron’s great, great grandfather, Emile Levitas turned over a tidy sum as a Director of the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China. However, the big money came in during the Second Opium War, which Britain and its ally France fought to ensure the continuation of the drugs trade between India and China.
So it was in essence a war FOR drugs not on them and it helped cement David Cameron’s family fortune.
That’s one of the reasons why Cameron’s now pushing for tighter all-encompassing legislation against “non-violent extremism”. The real threat now comes not just from terrorists but from “conspiracy theories”, he says. Exactly the sort of thing that might expose his ancestor’s role in war profiteering and narcotics.
Disregarding the fact that the West and its allies have helped finance, arm and equip many of today’s terrorists, something that is now common knowledge among Iraqis, David Cameron has also denounced “conspiracy theories” because they are in his words “anti-Semitic”.
In reality the threat posed by “conspiracy theories” is that many are more than mere theories. Although largely ignored by the mainstream media the wider broadcast of this information is a real threat insofar as it would undermine Cameron’s power. Not because it would help foster terror. Rather it would expose the real forces that have shaped much of modern history and political power. These same forces are also behind much of modern terror and that is something David Cameron and his allies don’t want revealed.
We’ve posted extracts from the following before but it serves to illustrate why Cameron is so focused on this one particular aspect of conspiracy theories. He wants to silence “conspiracy theories” because they reveal how “terrorism” is being used by the West and its allies for their own purposes, and Cameron’s using the old “anti-Semitic” charge to achieve just that. Ed.

Illustrious Jewish roots of Tory leader revealed

University of Manchester — July 10, 2009

David Cameron’s Jewish history goes back hundreds – if not thousands – of years, according to a University of Manchester historian.
Dr Yaakov Wise, who specialises in Jewish history, says the Tory leader is descended from a German-born Jewish scholar whose writings furthered the study of Hebrew in European Christendom at a time of widespread hostility toward its Jews.
And according to Dr Wise, who has been using archival material to examine the Cameron family tree, the Tory leader could also be a direct descendent of the greatest ever Hebrew prophet, Moses.
Cameron is a descendent of banker Emile Levita, who came to Britain as a German immigrant in the 1850s. Emile Levita was himself a descendent of Elijah Levita, who lived from 1469-1549.
During the last years of his life Elijah Levita produced, among other works, two major books: the 1541 Translator’s Book, the first dictionary of the Targums or Aramaic commentaries on the Hebrew Bible.
His lexicon of 1542 explained much of the Mishnaic Hebrew language and was a supplement to two important earlier dictionaries.
Elijah Levita also wrote what is thought to be the first ever Yiddish novel – called the Bove-bukh (The Book of Bove) written in 1507 and printed in 1541.
The book is based on an Italian version of an Anglo-Norman tale about a queen who betrays her husband and causes his death.
Emile Levita, who was granted citizenship in 1871, is Cameron’s great great grandfather.
Levita ,says Dr Wise, is the Latin form of the name Levite, a Jew descended from the Tribe of Levi, the son of Jacob and one of the original twelve tribes of Israel.
“The leader of the Levites at the time of the exodus from Egypt was Moses, who was married with two sons named in the Bible,” said Dr Wise – who is based at the University’s Centre for Jewish Studies.
“However, later descendents of Moses are unknown and many of today’s Levites – often carrying the surnames such as Levy, Levine, Levitan or Levita – could in fact be his descendants.”
Emile Levita enjoyed considerable financial success, becoming a director of the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, which had offices in Threadneedle Street in the City of London.
He took on all the trappings of an English gentleman – he hunted, owned a grouse moor in Wales, and started an educational tradition which has continued through to today’s Tory leader, by sending his four sons to Eton.
Emile’s eldest son, Arthur, a stockbroker, married Steffie Cooper, a cousin of the Royal Family providing Cameron with a link to King George III, an ancestor he shares with the Queen – his fifth cousin once removed.

Standing on the Shoreline of Fathomless Time

Smoking Mirrors – August 2, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there and just because you can doesn’t mean it is.
Well… it’s official, in my mind anyway; the news is a bunch of crap, both Crass Media and alternative media. Neither one of them has any idea what they are talking about. I’ve been going to these places every day, mostly to get links to reports and stories, as examples of whatever it was I was in the process of writing about. I can’t seem to find anything in either place anymore that I care enough about to share with you. There’s  no loss in that regard. you can always go there on your own. Of course, every now and then you find something that YOU KNOW the readership will be wanting to see.
This leaves me without a whole lot to say about the world in general, or specific for that matter. It is what it is and we are what we are, except when we are not, which is, as they say in fashion is ‘all the rage these days’. Quite obviously, the darkness and the agents of the darkness, in passing, are ramped up to accomplish all of the confusion that is possible for them, before they must make their exit, willingly or otherwise. I’m guessing ‘otherwise’ is the likely vehicle of departure.
In the meantime; accent on ‘mean’, we have to resolve our primary difficulties. Here’s a list of what has come to my attention as representative of these; our presumptions of knowing, when we don’t, our attachments to all the things that bring us pain and which we seem unwilling to recognize as doing exactly that, our idea that we have control over our lives, which most of our regular experiences prove is not the case, our inability to love ourselves, our impatience at conditions and circumstances, because our concept of time is different from the one who owns time and space and everything that passes through and between them, our fantasy that we know what god wants of us and everyone else, when we don’t even know what we want or who we are to begin with. I’m sure there is more but every one of all of them has something to do with the way we see ourselves.
Much of what contributes to our view of ourselves was formed in us without our permission when we were too young to possess the objective capacity to filter bad impressions of ourself, that were injected into our consciousness through telepathic invasion. It’s all the result of bad parenting and those parents were themselves all subjected to similar experiences, as were their parents before them. It’s not just our entry point parents, it’s also all the various social influences from government, peer pressure and the culture. The latter of these is presently being expressed as a ravenous, mucoid substance, something along the lines of, The Slime that Ate New York.
A great many people are having problems of the moment. We’re all engaged at some level in a cosmic Spring cleaning process. Of course, I’m talking about present company because many of us are not engaged in the process and are simply meant to be processed at some point. If you are not consciously engaged, you will be unconsciously rendered through a series of successive events that bring about whatever resolution the variable math of your being adds up to.
For many these days, one of their biggest trials is having to be alone; if what I hear is any indication of trends. Great divisions are occurring like fault lines through the social strata. There aren’t that many of us that really enjoy being alone. Personally I can take it or leave it. Being with another person is entirely dependent on the quality of the interplay. If that is not of a sufficiently high order, it is often more trouble than it is worth. Even more important is the level of belief that one’s consort has in the other. It is near impossible to succeed if your significant other does not fully believe in you. This is especially so if the other has no frame of reference for the ineffable, or does not believe in the ineffable. There is a current, much like an electric current, that passes between two people and which charges the dynamic between them, in relation to what appears on the manifest realm. Without this in effect, there is no ‘juice’, no energy. You spend all your time walking uphill and the hill keeps climbing because the doubt keeps piling. In a large percentage of cases, when someone succeeds at what they do it is because of the faith that another has in them.
So… even if you are alone, sometimes this is for the best, especially given that none of us are ever alone, we only think we are. Why would we be put in the company of someone who doesn’t believe in us? There are as many reasons for conditions as there are people to hold the opinions on them. Sometimes it is Karma and sometimes it is because nothing of any significance, in a wider sense, was meant to take place in a particular time zone. We can imagine that the ineffable is unconcerned with what we desire or seek after. We might imagine that what we want is at odds with the will of the ineffable, or we might imagine that the ineffable is too busy to put any attention to our insignificant personal pursuits. To the contrary, the ineffable is deeply involved in every aspect of our lives and this is something we need to impress on ourselves viscerally. Just because something doesn’t happen the way we want it to or when we want it to does not mean it will not happen at some point, or in a way vastly different than we might have envisioned it.
The reason that the ineffable, or fate, or life; call it what you will, sets such trials before us and often seems to be working overtime to reduce our faith and push us beyond what seems to be the breaking point, time and time again, is to increase our faith- to remove from us every support structure except for a simple and unshakable faith in the ineffable. Scripture is timeless because truth is timeless. It is written into the very integrity of existence. It is the word and the word is the basic building block of life and from its resonance comes everything that is or ever will be.
Sometimes I think, “If God loves me he sure has a funny way of showing it.” Still, I can speak from experience and say that my faith in the ineffable and my willingness to rely on the ineffable is stronger than it has ever been, despite everything I have been put through. Even now, when there is so much more to think about than I ever expected to have served on my plate, I’m not thinking about any of it. I’m just thinking the ineffable is going to arrange it to his satisfaction in whatever way that is manifest and I will take it as it is and be glad to have done so.
On the Beach
seeing things as they are
what does that mean?
seeing my mortality in
the context of a dream…
this brief hour of life
the impotent voice of my heart to
all the torments before and beyond
the unknown into which i am gone
over and over again I return
until every role has been
my own
until every triumph and defeat
every honor and ignominy
tasted and digested
mourned and regretted
and the point
what is the point?
reaching desires end
standing on the shoreline
of fathomless time
bearing witness to the limits
no longer applied
here is that boundless moment
without end
and nothing that was will ever
occur again
My dear friends, whatever it may be that you struggle with, it is only a restless dream growing nearer to awakening. When one awakens, the environment of the dream fades, until one cannot even recall what had formerly been present. Now you are in another place and surrounded by the elements of that location …there is no room for anything else. There is nothing that we need to do to bring any of it about. Our job is not to interfere. Our job is to reach the understanding that it is all vastly beyond us and knows far better than we ever shall, where it is bound and how it will go about arriving and becoming.

Al-Nusra Front, ISIL Ask Syrian Army for Safe Passage to Withdraw from Damascus Province

FNA — via Veteran Today August 2, 2015

The two main rival Takfiri terrorist groups, the ISIL and the Al-Nusra Front, asked the Syrian army to allow them to safely withdraw from several areas in Southern Damascus.

The ISIL and Al-Nusra Front groups called on the Syrian army to allow them retreat their forces and military hardware from al-Hajar al-Aswad and al-Tazamon towns as well as the Palestinian Yarmouk refugee camp.

“These two Takfiri terrorist groups have once again demanded for withdrawal from their positions in Damascus countryside after their conditions deteriorated,” Khalid Abdul Majid told the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper.

Several groups of militants have surrendered to the Syrian army in the Damascus Countryside in the last several months. The last one of such groups gave in to the authorities in the region in mid February.

Last month, Syria’s National Reconciliation Committee announced that tens of militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) surrendered to the government troops in the city of Zabadani.

A large number of militants laid down arms and surrendered to the Syrian authorities, the Lebanese Al-Hadith news website reported.

FSA’s senior commanders Tareq al-Zin, Ali Morad, Akram al-Hourani, Monir al-Aqa and Abdullah Rahmeh have also surrendered themselves to the Syrian army in Damascus countryside, the report added.

The development came after President Bashar al-Assad in a televised address on Sunday pardoned all soldiers who have fled the army, saying that his words served as a general decree to relevant officials.

Assad said even those who have fought the Syrian army will be pardoned. This was the third general amnesty declared by President Assad in the last four years.

Hundreds of gunmen have been laying down their weapons and turning themselves in to authorities in areas across the country.

This number seems to be on the rise as the army has been making steady gains in the battlefield against the terrorist groups, recapturing an increasing number of areas, including strategic sites, which helped cut off many of the militants’ supply routes and forced them to surrender or run away.


Extortion! The Real Reason for War — August 2, 2015

pope against JewsAt the end of the 19th Century, the Catholic church organized massive resistance to Illuminati Jewish domination of national life. The Illuminati instigated World War One partly to crush and punish a recalcitrant Europe.
When a new ritual murder was reported in Hungary in 1899, the official Vatican newspaper L’Observatore Romano issued this warning “not to all Jews but to certain Jews in particular: Don’t throw oil on the fire…Content yourself with the Christian’s money, but stop shedding and sucking their blood.” (163)
“Is not war already a revolutionary function? War? Since [1870] every war was a giant step towards Communism.” – Illuminati insider Christian Rakovsky, The Red Symphony
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” J. Edgar Hoover
“We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered.” — Rupert Murdoch Feb 24, 2009

by Henry Makow Ph.D. — (Revised from Feb 21, 2009)

Lenin defined “peace” as the end of all forms of resistance to Communist (i.e. Illuminati Jewish) despotism.
After WWI and WWII, the League of Nations and the UN both promised world government to prevent war. Indeed, Illuminati globalists always promise this–but we don’t realize they are blackmailing us. They start the wars in the first place.
The Elders of Zion vowed to harass the nations with corruption and strife until they accepted their “Superstate” (i.e. world government tyranny.)
“The recognition of our despot may also come …when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence – a matter which we shall arrange for – of their rulers, will clamour: “Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who will unite us and annihilate the causes of disorders – frontiers, nationalities, religions, State debts – who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives.” (emphasis mine, Protocols of Zion, 10-18)

After Iran deal: Israel trying to thwart move to monitor its nuclear program

Barak Ravid — Haaretz August 3, 2015

Over the past two weeks, Israel has begun a diplomatic campaign to thwart a resolution to subject its nuclear facilities to international supervision. The resolution, which is being pushed by Egypt and other Arab and Muslim states, will come up for a vote at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s General Conference in mid-September.

A senior Foreign Ministry official said he feared the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the six powers will make it hard for Israel to defeat the resolution.

The resolution, titled “Israeli nuclear capabilities,” has been repeatedly proposed by Egypt in recent years. It condemns Israel, demands that it open its reported nuclear facilities to IAEA inspection, and calls for an international conference on making the Middle East a nuclear-weapons-free zone.

Unlike Security Council resolutions, this one wouldn’t be binding. But it could still cause Israel great diplomatic damage, focus international attention on Israel’s nuclear program and prompt further IAEA action.

A few months ago, Egypt and Iran proposed a similar resolution at the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) review conference, but the United States, Britain and Canada blocked it after Egypt refused to soften the language.

Though Egypt is the IAEA resolution’s chief sponsor, Iran seems likely to join the move. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif indicated as much by publishing an article in The Guardian titled, “Iran has signed a historic nuclear deal – now it’s Israel’s turn.”

Zarif wrote that Israel must be pressured to join the NPT and advance an international conference on a nuclear-weapons-free Middle East. Israel, he wrote, has “an undeclared nuclear arsenal and a declared disdain towards non-proliferation, notwithstanding its absurd and alarmist campaign against the Iranian nuclear deal.”

For the last three years, Israel has succeeding in mustering a majority against Egypt’s IAEA resolution, thanks partly to proposals for a direct regional security dialogue with Arab states under UN auspices. Egypt and various other countries rejected these proposals, but they earned Israel considerable international credit.

The campaign to thwart the latest resolution began two weeks ago, when the Foreign Ministry sent a cable to all Israeli embassies and consulates instructing them to urge their host governments to oppose it.

“The resolution is fundamentally biased and mistaken, aimed at diverting global attention from the real dangers of nuclear proliferation in this region,” the cable’s talking points said. “This move will further politicize the IAEA and undermine the trust necessary for any regional dialogue on this issue.”

Israel has also sent personal envoys to several countries it considers key to winning the vote. For instance, former Foreign Ministry director general Nissim Ben Shitrit went to Argentina about 10 days ago, on the assumption that if Argentina doesn’t back the Arab proposal, other Latin American countries would likely follow suit.

Senior Israeli officials are divided over how the Iranian deal will impact the IAEA debate. Some argue that following the Iran agreement, America and other leading countries won’t want to raise the pressure on Israel even further. But others fear that with the Iran deal done, the international focus will shift to Israel’s nuclear program. They also fear Israel will enjoy less American support than in the past, due to the severe tensions with Washington over the Iran deal.


The Crashing Matrix and Last Ditch Trans-Everything Agenda

Zen Gardner — July 25, 2015


The outdated matrix programming by the engineers of deceit can’t keep up. The vibrational changes are exceeding their capabilities.  The imitators of creation can’t maintain a current operating system any longer in the face of this massive Universal shift we’re undergoing.

And it’s driving them nuts.

Just look at the desperation we’re witnessing. Crude military and police state maneuvers are only one aspect, of course working in concert with dastardly economic manipulations and an outlandish propaganda barrage. The biggest clue is seeing the previously incremental and now hyperbolic use of technocratic programs from mass surveillance and data gathering to the advent of cyber warfare and artificial intelligence, while crazed maniacs at CERN try to crack into other dimensions.

The magnitude and desperation of their insane agenda has become completely transparent to just about anyone.

This last techno-based stage is a draconian move to try to delete our innate humanity before our awakening reaches critical mass. They’ve openly admitted this. Hence their attempt to transmute everything from genes and humans to automated monsters and geoengineering. Agreed, when it comes to realizing what’s happening there are the entranced apathetics who swallow anything, but we’re witnessing what’s bound to lead to a total meltdown of their dark designs before our very eyes.

If you can’t see it, look again.

Obama Appointee Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting

Mollie Hemingway — The Federalist July 31, 2015

Still from a video in which top Planned Parenthood official, Deborah Nucatola, discuses and arranges the sale of body parts of aborted babies. Click to enlarge

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.

Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

Even though the National Abortion Federation filed its claim only hours before, Orrick quickly decided in their favor that the abortionists they represent would, ironically, be “likely to suffer irreparable injury, absent an ex parte temporary restraining order, in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation, and the requested relief is in the public interest.”

Thus far the videos have featured born-alive humans discussing the killing of what abortion providers themselves call “babies,” the “crushing” of their bodies and harvesting of their organs for sale to for-profit companies.

From Orrick’s restraining order:

YOU ARE HEREBY ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE on Monday, August 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m., before the Honorable William H. Orrick, at 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, Courtroom 2, why you, your officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and any other persons who are in active concert or participation with you, should not be enjoined and restrained from engaging in, committing, or performing, directly and indirectly, any and all of the following acts:
(1) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party any video, audio, photographic, or other recordings taken, or any confidential information learned, at any NAF annual meetings;
(2) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party the dates or locations of any future NAF meetings;
(3) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party the names or addresses of any NAF members learned at any NAF annual meetings; and
(4) attempting to gain access to any future NAF meetings.

Pending hearing on the above Order to Show Cause you, your officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and any other persons who are in active concert or participation with you ARE HEREBY RESTRAINED AND ENJOINED from:
(1) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party any video, audio, photographic, or other recordings taken, or any confidential information learned, at any NAF annual meetings;
(2) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party the dates or locations of any future NAF meetings; and
(3) publishing or otherwise disclosing to any third party the names or addresses of any NAF members learned at any NAF annual meetings.

The suit filed by the National Abortion Federation attempted to restrain the journalism on the grounds that the Center for Medical Progress would be in violation of non-disclosure agreements its journalists had signed. The issue of whether you can restrain journalistic expression on such grounds is not cut and dry, according to Eugene Volokh, a First Amendment lawyer.

David Daleiden, the journalist behind the Center for Medical Progress videos, told CNN earlier today that the reason why Stem Express filed suit against release of a video of their meeting with him is because they admitted to receiving fully intact fetuses from abortion clinics. Daleiden said those conversations may have shown “prima facie evidence of born-alive infants.”

The Center for Medical Progress responded to the injunction:

The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work. The National Abortion Federation is a criminal organization that has spent years conspiring with Planned Parenthood on how to violate federal laws on partial-birth abortion and fetal tissue sales. The Center for Medical Progress will contest any attempts to suppress our First Amendment rights to free speech or silence the freedom of the citizen press.

We’ll have to wait to find out just how grisly the National Abortion Federation’s discussion of organ harvesting was.

Temperature in Iran hits 165F due to ‘heat dome’ over Middle East… Iraq declares national holiday as it’s too hot for people to work

Nick Enoch — Mail Online July 31, 2015

The extreme weather has been triggered by a high pressure ridge - or 'heat dome' - over the Middle East

The extreme weather has been triggered by a high pressure ridge – or ‘heat dome’ – over the Middle East

If the mercury heads north of 70F in Britain, the nation tends to go ‘summer crazy’ and breaks out the budgie smugglers, sandals and shorts.

But spare a thought for residents in the city of Bandar Mahshahr, south-west Iran, where ‘hot’ has taken on a whole new meaning.

Today, it reached a super-sweltering 165F (74C) on the heat index (or ‘feel-like’ temperature), taking into account humidity – making it one of the highest temperatures ever recorded.

Bandar Mahshahr’s air temperature registered 115F (46C) coupled with a dew point temperature of 90F (32C) at 4.30pm local time.

‘That was one of the most incredible temperature observations I have ever seen and it is one of the most extreme readings ever in the world,’ said AccuWeather meteorologist Anthony Sagliani.

The city, which has a population of more than 200,000, is the capital of Iran’s Mahshahr County in the Khuzestan Province.

Residents had to endure a similarly stifling heat yesterday too, as the heat index climbed to 159f (70C) – and the forecast for the next few days gives little hope of respite.

The extreme weather has been triggered by a high pressure ridge – or ‘heat dome’ – over not just the Persian Gulf but the Middle East generally.

The highest known heat index ever attained was 178F (81C) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on July 8, 2003.

And neighbouring countries are feeling the strain as well.

In Iraq yesterday, authorities declared a mandatory four-day holiday, to begin with immediate effect.

The government has urged residents to stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water.

But chronic electricity and water cuts in Iraq and other conflict-ridden countries make heatwaves like the present one even more unbearable – particularly for the more than 14 million people displaced by violence across the region.

In the southern Iraqi city of Basra earlier this month, protesters clashed with police as they demonstrated for better power services, leaving one person dead.

Unlike other countries in the region, Iraq lacks beaches, and travel restrictions make it difficult for people to escape the sweltering heat, leaving many – even those fortunate enough to live in their homes – with limited options for cooling off.

Some swim in rivers and irrigation canals, while others spend these days in air-conditioned shopping malls.

To the south, in the similarly sweltering Gulf, residents cranked up their air conditioners, and elsewhere in the Middle East, those who could headed to the beach to escape Thursday’s soaring temperatures, high even by the standards of the region.

It is not uncommon for well-off Gulf citizens to decamp with their luxury cars and servants to cooler spots such as Britain or Switzerland as temperatures rise.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, joined by a delegation numbering in the hundreds, is currently cooling off in the south of France.

Several Gulf states, including the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, mandate midday breaks when temperatures are at their highest for low-paid migrant labourers during the summer months.

But that only provides some relief as many still spend long hours working in the heat and travel to job sites on buses without air conditioning.

A Filipino migrant rights activist collapsed and later died of apparent heat stroke during a visit to his country’s consulate in Dubai this week.

One of the hottest spots in the Gulf was Kuwait City, where Thursday temperatures were expected to reach 118F (48C).

The civil aviation authority’s meteorological department forecast daytime conditions as ‘very hot’ and overnight temperatures as ‘relatively hot,’ with moderate winds providing little relief.

Even Zhirinovskiy doubled Poroshenko’s score! In spite of the common wisdom which says that if Vladimir Volfovich takes up the Ukrainian question, the nationally conscious will be left in charge of Lvov, and even that will be a lease…All in all, pretty bad news for the embroidered shirt crowd…

One could of course argue that Kremlin trolls attacked the poll en masse, pushing the Putin button in order to play mind games with the patriotic citizens of Ukraine and to establish the “bloody dictatorship of the Moscow tyrant.” One could, but who will believe it. The site is well known in a very narrow circle, and is rather not frequented by “trolls and bots”: this landfill of an internet resource is visited mainly by the nationally conscious warriors.

Now about Putin. It’s no wonder: he is considered to be the world’s number 1 politician according to the global media community. That’s the result of the 2013 world survey of 175 news agencies and media outlets around the world. Naturally, did not participate in that survey but confirmed its results nevertheless: even in Ukraine where the population is being thoroughly zombified and threatened with the image of the Russian president 24 hours a day, his rating is off the scale. Therefore Ukraine’s national idea, defined in terms of “Ending Putin” is suffering a defeat on all fronts.

J.Hawk’s Comment: I’d add that even it was “bots and trolls” voting for Putin, where is the pro-Poroshenko/Yatsenyuk/Lyashko/Timoshenko enthusiasm? Right? That, in my view, is what speaks in favor of its authenticity, the fact that none (NONE, KARL!) of Ukraine’s leaders elicit respect, admiration, emulation, gratitude, love, or even mere tolerance. No, they are all hated or, worse, despised. Putin, on the other hand, commands respect, grudging or otherwise, even in the US.

This poll, incidentally, is indicative of a crucial difference between Ukraine and Russia. Russia has a strong tradition of statehood and, with it, a strong tradition of an exacting system of cadre selection and training which fails only rarely. Ukraine has neither. Therefore the sort of incompetent mediocrity that is virtually every mid-level and senior Ukrainian official (can anyone name anyone who doesn’t fit that characterization) would never make anywhere close to the top in Russia which is generally run by people who actually know what they are doing (what a concept!), and where the incompetent mediocrities have been largely relegated to the ranks of the “liberal” “opposition” which pines for a Maidan because that’s the only way they could come to power.

And, as Comrade Stalin once said, “cadres decide everything.” The fate of countries and empires turns on their ability to discharge the functions of office they occupy. Ukrainian elites’ inability to do so means Ukraine, as a state, is doomed. If it had “someone like Putin” (and Putin’s cadre which actually runs the country in his name), it just might pull it off. But it doesn’t so it won’t.
