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

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.

Rotwang

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?

Shameless Dershowitz Campaigns For Israel

Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Jan 31, 2015

Alan Dershowitz, recently implicated in a sex scandal, is campaigning for Israel. The shameless Harvard Professor is begging for Jewish support following recent Zionist leaders calls to dissociate from him and his acts.

Interestingly enough, Dershowitz is correct – the West Bank Settlements are not an obstacle as far as peace is concerned. If anything they make the One State Solution into the only viable resolution of the conflict.   The real and only obstacle to peace is the embarrassing fact that the word ‘peace’ doesn’t even exist in the modern Hebrew language.
The word shalom, usually translated into peace doesn’t really mean peace, harmony or reconciliation. Shalom actually means ‘security for the Jews.’ As such, Shalom is a non empathic  judeo-centric notion  sustained by blindness to otherness. The only obstacle to peace in the Middle East is the lack of the notion of peace within the Israeli and modern Hebraic culture.
Once again, it is the comprehension of Jewish culture that enlighten us on the conflict and the prospect of its resolution.

Dead at the Stupor Bowl from an American Sniper

Reflections in a Petri Dish — Jan 31, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
“If you love me, love my dog” (ancient Hindu adage)
Okay, cats and kitties, Super Sunday is upon us. That is what they call it. Given what I can intuitively glean and also draw from my relatively large understanding of the game and how it moves (in mysterious way) according to arcane math, as well as what for some, can be predictable destiny, it seems fair clear to me that The Patriots will win (grin). It just ‘feels’ that way. So now I give you this tidbit in which you will find much humor and possibly someone to root for (grin again).
Yes… before you tell me about it, I am well aware of the sham and pretension. I am well aware that this is a corporate field day; a triumph of Materialism over humanity and the day will be filled with gross and painful examples of it. Why then do you watch this kind of crap, Visible? Well… along the road to self realization and whatever part or portion of enlightenment I might be capable of, other things cross my attention screen. Though we may seek to reside completely in the present, we are, to some degree a reflection of our past and while Visible was growing up and even to the present, he has played these games. He played them from dawn to dusk on military recreation fields and after that in any number of sandlot like environments; once traveling around Virginia with his friends in a sort of reverse of “Bingo Long and the Traveling All Stars”, where we played black teams who were quite good and whose families brought fried chicken and beer to the games ( for 50 cents each) and it was… a whole lot of fun. So… it is kind of in my blood. I actually enjoy the spirit of competition as long as good sportsmanship is involved.
However… I bring up the Super Bowl today to point out its negative aspects as much as anything. The picture of Robert Kraft and Paul Allan’s faces bespeak to m,e a legacy of soul deep corruptions and, given that, when they have their funerals in coming times, there will be many, many long black limousines, filled with the wealthy and important (among themselves) and they will, one after another, stand over the coffin, on some stage and talk about what wonderful men these two were. Oh they will go on and on. A river of weeping crocodiles will flow past the coffin. Don’t stand to close to the banks (double unintendre?). Like visible is not shy about saying; {“the bigger the limousine the bigger the a******.”
Meanwhile, “American Sniper” is wiping the box office floors with all previous, cynical propaganda pieces. It’s based on a true story which, means for sure that most of it is a lie. It’s done by Steely Eyed Clint who has his hands on the pulse of the market . This sniper killed oh… about a thousand people of every type and then, driven by guilt, I suppose, he took to counseling people broken by their participation in the same. After a few years of that he got shot by one of them. It’s a criminal lie of justification for one more horrific act of mass murder, based on a lie and financed by bankers.
Based on the incredibly popular success of this mass media hyped and expensively advertised pack of lies and justifications, they are now talking about shooting either a couple of the judges or the winning performer on the finale of this season’s American Idol. Imagine what that would do to the ratings. Judging by films made that actually mirror this, one might say a lot.
So… we got The stupor Bowl and we got American Pit Viper and we got John McCain calling people scum. We got Limbaugh saying that he despises The Patriots because they elevate team over individual and come out on the field together. He says that is socialism and un American. How about that? When people can say that with a straight face and have millions of Nimrods bobbing their heads in response, you KNOW the end is near.
Still… for a few hours, I close my eyes to the glitter and bullshit. I close my eyes to the hypocrisy and bad taste and I focus only on the moments of contact. I don’t even hear the rest of it. Quite possibly I am watering the ferns during these moments. Well… let me be brutally honest here. Except for these kinds of contests, I never watch TV, so I don’t know what’s going on there and these are only the few times when I get to see how fiendishly twisted this world really is.
I’ve decided I will go ahead and see American Sniper and in the process, I can speak authoritatively about the effect of it on someone with objective reasoning powers. Now… if you don’t have objective reasoning you might want to skip that part once I get to it toward the end.
Okay… I watched half of it now and it is worse than I thought. They could have pulled this crap off with Gary Cooper back in his SGT. York days but then the world was a different place and Gary Cooper is a lot more man than Bradley Cooper. The weirdest thing is that while showing the propaganda side they also (inadvertently?) show what nasty sonofabitches we were. I watch closely. Sometimes a director or writer will be so skilled that he or she is more celebrated than they ever were in life. Maybe that is what Eastwood had in mind. Even by now, ten minutes later I would say, “Yes, this film deserves at least one award and that is Best Director. Regardless of what he was trying to say, he did it very, very well. I’ve seen a lot of films. This is one of the best directed since “Chinatown” or The Usual Suspects. You would have thought I would have said “Apocalypse Now” or “Platoon” but I used those examples because they are different forms of deception; if that makes any sense.
I see films like this and I think about what I would have filmed with that kind of money. It would have been very, very different. Remember something my friends, you have to live with yourself. Just cause it looks like life is overlooking you doesn’t mean life doesn’t notice. Life is actually saving your ass by keeping you from making a bigger fool of yourself than you are already. I used to say to people that sometimes obscurity is not a bad thing. It’s one thing for the people around you to know that you don’t have what it takes. It is quite another thing for the whole world to be made aware of it. Fame and fortune have a longevity relative to the plane they are on. Okay… now the film is boring me to death because taps just took more than half time takes at the super bowl. At least it felt that way. Now it is trite and cliché. You’ll see what I mean if you ever see it.
See… now we are near the end of the post, three quarters of the way or not; who knows? And we didn’t spend much time talking about the Super Bowl did we? I’ll add this; I watch because I love strategy and I love watching people who are good at it. I don’t agree with everyone but when someone is really good at it and it’s just a game; like football is just a game then I get to see the inside of a mind like Bill Bellichick’s because I am paying attention. I have no special skill besides that and it brings me to the reason I am discussing all of this in the first place. If you have one skill that lifts you to a certain place, you can access a lot of other skills. Once you can do that you are confronted with which direction you will take those skills in; right hand or left hand path? Remember, you don’t always get to choose ‘when’ they ask… heh heh. I laugh because that one I got down. Others… heh heh again, not so much. Look people, I’m no different than most of you. Since I got here in my new location, I have been hanging out with at least half a dozen readers and all of them are of singular aspect. Today, two friends and readers (in that order), Joel and Chas came by and my landlady says to me after they leave, “Who were those two guys? They were so cool!” pretty funny, trust me.
I’m not going to get into mentioning names except where I know that people don’t care. This environment does not disappoint and if even I, on a wing and a prayer, can pull it off it, must be pretty idiot proof… heh heh…
For some reason I am feeling very personal tonight when it comes to the good fortune that has been shown to me. Today I saw something called “Dives, Diners and Drive ins” It is some over the top borderline intellect who goes around to these restaurants and they show you how they make some of the worst food you can imagine. Once you see this and note the amount of toxic overdoses of basic ingredients put into these things you might not ever want to eat in a restaurant again. No wonder food tastes so much better at home than out there.
In many ways, this film has now turned into one of those video game shooter things. I could retch but I wont cause I have to live here. You know? I now realize that it doesn’t matter where you are until it doesn’t matter where you are and until that happens, it does matter where you are. I may have taken the long way around the mountain but at least I know my limitations and at least I got there; of that makes any sense.
I know the Stupor Bowl is just more witchcraft and bad wizards with long staffs and short dicks but if I classify everything I see in those terms I might as well shoot myself. I know the world is full of shit. I know on occasion I have also compressed what I was and sold it as free flowing but usually… not. You get to where you get to and you have only yourself to blame if it isn’t enough. If it is more than you expected then you handle that however you do.
I don’t know what to think about that movie at this point. I can only measure things by what I would have done. In that case… everyone in this film should be ten times deader than the people they killed.
It may be just this evening but I feel really good. Something changed somewhere.
End Transmission…….
{The film just ended and it is a steaming pile of crap and what do I see in the credits? Bradley Cooper. I think he is Barack Obama’s date for the prom.}

NY Times: China Further Tightens Grip on the Internet

By ANDREW JACOBS

The Chinese authorities are no longer tolerating the workarounds used by millions of people who rely heavily on less-fettered access to the Internet.

Rebuttal by the Anti-New York Times Jan 31, 2015

Today’s anti-China attack ad features the familiar whine about China’s censorship of the Internet. But nowhere in this piece is there any mention of China’s stated reason for such controls; namely, the CIA’s relentless efforts to seduce China’s young people with western propaganda and subversive Facebook activism. Instead, we are fed a sob story about a poor Chinese girl struggling to keep in social media contact with friends she made overseas:
“Jing Yuechen, the founder of an Internet start-up here in the Chinese capital, has no interest in overthrowing the Communist Party. But these days she finds herself cursing the nation’s smothering cyberpolice as she tries — and fails — to browse photo-sharing websites like Flickr and struggles to stay in touch with the Facebook friends she has made during trips to France, India and Singapore.”
Well, Ms. Yuechen might not have any interest in “overthrowing the Communist Party”, but the Globalists certainly do and the Internet is their Trojan Horse. By the way, just to keep the record straight, these days pro-business, pro-private property, pro self-reliance China is “communist” in name only.

The Globalists are so obsessed with China’s Internet censorship that they actually sent the First Beast over to China last year to incite the country’s youth against Internet control. In several addresses before Chinese students, the uncultured Chicago Globe Trotter of debatable gender managed to trash ‘racist’ America (as always) and incite against China’s Internet policies at the same time. A previous Times article revealed Moochele Obongo’s classless and subtly loaded comments about Internet censorship:
“Many decades ago, there were actually laws in America that allowed discrimination against black people like me, who are a minority in the United States,… but over time, ordinary citizens decided that those laws were unfair. So they held peaceful protests and marches.”

The subject of Internet censorship is a delicate issue. On the one hand, we at the Internet-based Anti-New York Times strongly oppose all forms of “thought control”. However, the world’s impressionable young people are indeed under relentless attack from the Western propagandists of the CIA, the NGO’s, Hollyweird and the US News Media.This phenomenon was a key element of the 2014 coup in Ukraine. The NWO’s weapons of choice for targeting the “students” are biased Internet news content, pornography, western “entertainment” and social media. The ultimate goal is to manipulate young minds and foment an organized ‘Color Revolution’ (“peaceful protests and marches”) to overthrow the nationalistic and pro-Russian Chinese government, or at least to help some pro-western traitors to soften things up a bit.
By the way, today’s article also fails to mention that the seditious website of Sulzberger’s sleazy Times is banned in China. Take that Sulzberger!

Pentagon: US may lose high-tech military superiority to China, Russia

Russia Today — Jan 29, 2015

The Pentagon has expressed deep concern about the US eventually losing its military technological superiority over rivals such as China and Russia, and is urging NATO states to develop innovative weapons in close cooperation to optimize military spending.

“I am very concerned about the increasing risk of loss of US military technological superiority,” Pentagon arms buyer Frank Kendall told a House Armed Services Committee hearing. “We’re at risk and the situation is getting worse,” he warned, specifying that his concerns lay with the heavy investments into weapons design being done by China and Russia.

Kendall noted that development of aircraft carriers and satellite technologies by China and Russia was targeting “critical” US military capabilities, Reuters reported.

In a separate hearing at the House Armed Services Committee, US Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work announced Wednesday that “bold action” was needed to keep the US’s lead in technology as China, Russia and other countries are rapidly developing weapon systems of their own.

The US must “increase collaboration” equally with NATO members, and allies in Asia and other areas when investing into new weapons.

“We must coordinate and collaborate, avoid duplication, leverage niche capabilities, and push our establishments to innovate in technology, concepts, experimentation and wargaming,” Work told a conference hosted by the Center for a New American Security.

Work also called on representatives of NATO members to keep their promise given last year and spend 2 percent of GDP on defense.

Extensive collaboration with allies worldwide is a part of America’s new plan, dubbed “Defense Innovation Initiative” (DII), which aims to ensure US decisive technical military superiority against potential enemies.

Leading manufacturers in America’s defense industry, including Boeing and Lockheed Martin, have repeatedly urged the Pentagon to allocate more investments into developing new technologies.

In response, the Pentagon unveiled its Defense Innovation Initiative program.

The plan was presented in November 2014 by US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

“It will put resources behind innovations,” Hagel said on November 15 at a national defense conference at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation in Simi Valley, California. The budget for the new initiative was not publicly specified.

Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work was appointed to lead a group of senior Pentagon officials to lead on the DII plan.

Two months later, speaking at the House Armed Services Committee, Work has also not revealed the budget behind the DII plan. He said the investments are going to be “significant” and into multiple means of military hardware, from nuclear weapons, space control capabilities, missile defense and cyber warfare, together with high-speed strike weapons, unmanned undersea vehicles, advanced sensors, and high-energy lasers and railgun technology.

In turn, Kendall revealed that DoD has allocated special-purpose funding for designing of a new “next-generation X-plane” to eventually succeed the F-35 fighter jet, as well as a new engine for it.

Work mentioned that a number of key technologies, such as robotics and autonomous operations, are going to be elaborated by commercial companies in various regions.

Bilderberg 2015 Location Confirmed

Steve Watson — Prison Planet.com Jan 30, 2015

Interalpen-Hotel-Tyrol1The location and dates of the forthcoming 2015 gathering of secretive elites under the Bilderberg Group banner has been confirmed.

Local police have verified that the conference will take place at the opulent Interalpen Hotel, in the Austrian mountains near Telfs.

In a press release, the Austrian police revealed that security for the confab will be in operation from June 9th-14th. As is usually the custom with Bilderberg, the actual meeting of delegates will take place from the Thursday to the Sunday of that week, June 11th-14th.

The police press release notes that security at the Bilderberg meeting will be part of the same operation as security for the much more public G7 meeting, which is scheduled to take place at the beginning of the same week, 7th-8th June, at Schloss Elmau in Bavaria, Germany.

“The security measures at the G7 summit on 7 and 8 June 2015 in Bavaria, and the Bilderberg Conference from 9 to 14 June 2015 in Tyrol were focal points of a briefing by Federal Minister Mag Johanna Mikl-Leitner and representatives of the Ministry of Interior and State Police Tyrol on 13 January 2015 in Vienna.” the press statement reads.

“The venue of the G7 summit lies only 3.6 kilometers in a straight line from the Austrian border, both events cover similar issues and take place one after the other, the G7 summit on 7th and 8th June 2015 and the Bilderberg conference on 9th to 14th June 2015.” the statement continues.

“The job of the police at the G7 and the Bilderberg conference is the protection of state guests, eminent persons and the general public,” the Minister of the Interior is quoted as saying. “The defense and prevention of attacks is a top priority. However, the police presence also ensures the protection of peaceful demonstrators, because freedom of assembly is one of the fundamental rights of our democracy.” the Minister is said to have added.

The statement also notes that in conjunction with German police, extra special police forces will be called in to operate security during the gatherings. Known as COBRA, the forces are Austria’s primary counter-terrorism special operations tactical unit. and are not part of the Austrian Federal Police but are directly under the control of the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior.

Major General Robert Strondl, Head of the Operations Department of the Interior Ministry noted that “For months we gather all the relevant information about both events and create risk assessments that are continuously updated and are the basis for all other plans.”

The statement also notes that police are considering “significant” traffic restrictions, and even a 30 mile no-fly zone around the Bilderberg meeting, to include paragliders and hang gliders.

Rumours over the venue for this year’s Bilderberg meeting, the Interalpen Hotel, were first touted back in August when enquiries to the hotel revealed that it was already fully booked on the first two weekends of June. The uncovering of Bilderberg came earlier than ever before, perhaps reflecting the intense scrutiny that the group has come under in recent years.

Interalpen-Hotel is surrounded by forest and mountains, close to a ski resort, and not too far away from Innsbruck airport. Its ‘Meetings And Events’ brochure, states that “the hotel lies at an altitude of 1,300 metres in an exclusive setting in the Tirolean Alps and offers panoramic views of magnificent mountain peaks.”

The venue, owned by Swiss manufacturing giant The Liebherr Group, has a 400-capacity conference centre with “a magnificent Alpine backdrop”. The hotel previously hosted the Bilderbergers in 1988, 27 years ago. If the latest reports are correct, 2015 will mark the third occasion that the conference has been held in Austria.

The Interalpen Hotel has a 400-capacity conference centre.

The Interalpen Hotel has a 400-capacity conference centre.

It seems that the elites have returned to form following 2014′s relatively transparent location in Copenhagen Denmark, where reporters were able to get up close and personal with attendees as they wined and dined.

The gathering this year is sure to be reminiscent of the 2011 meeting in St. Moritz, Switzerland, when Bilderbergers retreated into the mountains, shielded by winding roads and forest cover.

While the mainstream media habitually fails to afford Bilderberg the press coverage it demands – characterizing the group as a mere “talking shop” – innumerable examples of the organization having a direct impact on global policy have been documented in recent years, leading to charges that the group is fundamentally undemocratic in nature.

In 2010, former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes’ admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement policy decisions that are formulated during the meeting.

Bilderberg has influenced major global events ahead of time, picking Presidents and Prime Ministers on a regular basis with total contempt for the democratic process.

In 2013, Italian lawyer Alfonso Luigi Marra requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the clandestine organization for criminal activity, questioning whether the group’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy.

In 2009, Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon even bragged about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group.

Top British diplomat was focus of secret file sent to Margaret Thatcher about ‘unnatural’ sexual behaviour

Introduction — Jan 30, 2015

It’s a curious coincidence that we are only now hearing about Sir Peter Hayman’s ‘unnatural’ proclivities. Like Lord Brittan or Cyril Smith, his perversions have only been more extensively disclosed after his death. Could it be that whilst alive Hayman’s perversions were concealed and maybe even being indulged, like those of Brittan and Smith? .
Were their perversions a key to their positions? Was this the handle that the powers that be had over Hayman and his ilk?
On the one hand their perversions may well have been concealed and even catered for. While on the other, it gave the powers that be influence over them: either by indulgence or with threat of exposure.
After all while still alive such revelations would have ruined their political careers. So it’s curios that all the recent revelations have only concerned politicians now dead.
Which begs the question: how many other politicians are currently being protected and indulged? Ed.

A top British diplomat was the focus of a secret Government file about his ‘unnatural’ sexual behaviour, it was revealed today.

The file, which has just been released to the National Archives, names the late Sir Peter Hayman as the subject of a file prepared for then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Sir Peter died in 1992 after a career working as a diplomat including as High Commissioner to Canada. He also worked for intelligence service MI6.

He was outed as a paedophile in the House of Commons after being let off with a police caution despite being found with a trove of extreme pornographic images which he shared with other child abusers.

He was named as a child abuser by the campaigning MP Geoffrey Dickens in the 1980s. He also had links to the controversial Paedophile Information Exchange which campaigned for sex with children to be legalised.

The top secret Government file was retained on grounds of national security and held by officials at the Cabinet Office, until it was finally released by the National Archives today, Sky News reported today.

Sir Peter’s sickening secret life was discovered in 1978 after police raided a flat he kept secret from his wife where they found child abuse images and post shared with other paedophiles.

Among it was a library of 45 substantial diaries in which Sir Peter had recorded in detail his sexual experiences and fantasies, the latter including sex with minors.

There was also substantial correspondence with other PIE members — 111 pages in one instance — in which they shared their otherwise secret desires and other graphic paedophile material.

Police later found that two of the dozen or so paedophiles in Sir Peter’s circle had been writing to each other about their interest in the extreme sexual torture and murder of children.

Even the hardened cops of the Obscene Publications Squad were ‘revolted’ by the Linden Gardens haul, it has been revealed.

When interviewed, Sir Peter — a man who had been deputy commandant of the British zone in Berlin and was later tasked to tear a strip off the Soviet ambassador to London after Moscow crushed the Prague Spring of 1968 — broke down and wept.

However, he was let off with a caution.

The Director of Public Prosecutions deemed that as the paedophile material sent through the post by Sir Peter and his friends had not been ‘unsolicited’ nor traded for profit, no offence had taken place worthy of prosecution.

Sir Peter’s reputation remained intact until he was outed in Parliament by the campaigning MP Mr Dickens.

The Hayman affair came back into the spotlight last year after Theresa May ordered an investigation into the alleged cover-up of a VIP paedophile ring which included leading figures in Westminster and Whitehall.

It came after Labour MP Simon Danczuk raised the matter in the Commons and centres on a dossier of child sex allegations involving senior Establishment figures, which was handed to the then Home Secretary Leon Brittan by fellow Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens in November 1983.

Lord Brittan said that he passed the documents on to Whitehall officials. But no action was taken and the Home Office has admitted that the Dickens dossier was subsequently destroyed.

Internet Martyr Aaron Swartz is Immortalized in Film

henrymakow.com — Jan 30, 2015

internets_own_boy_the_story_of_aaron_swartz_ver2Unjust laws exist;
shall we be content to obey them,
or shall we endeavor to amend them
and obey them until we have succeeded,
or shall we transgress them at once?
–Henry David Thoreau

by Henry Makow Ph.D. — Jan 30, 2015

A reader, Mary Lynn, tipped me to a documentary The Internet’s Own Boy, (2014) written and directed by Brian Knappenberger, and released last summer, 17 months after Aaron’s suicide Jan 11, 2013.
For some mysterious reason, this wonderful two-hour documentary did not get the media hype or word of mouth it deserved, and bombed in theatrical release. It is now available for free on YouTube which perhaps is appropriate given Aaron’s work and its Kickstarter funding.
Aaron’s suicide at the age of 26 was a tragic mistake. Many people believe he was murdered but that is true only in an indirect sense. The film makes it clear that he was a highly-strung young genius who was depressed by criminal charges against him.
Swartz easily could have turned his trial into a cause celebre and used it to advance the cause. He had already helped engineer an unprecedented nation-wide outcry that stopped a bill restricting Internet freedom. He could easily have done the same for himself. His Internet freedom lobby, Demand Progress.org, had 1.5 million members. His supporters were Obama voters, and ultimately, the President would have had to intervene with the Dept. of Justice.

King Salman dismisses Prince Bandar from National Security Council

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has dismissed Prince Bandar bin Sultan from the National Security Council.

King Salman on Thursday issued a number of royal decrees that removed or changed a number of top Saudi officials.

The new king, who succeeded the late King Abdullah last week, also removed Intelligence Chief Prince Khaled bin Bandar from his post and appointed him as his advisor.

He also sacked two of the late king’s sons from big jobs.

King Salman replaced Riyadh Governor Turki bin Abdullah with Faisal bin Bandar, and reinstated Khaled al-Faisal as Mecca governor less than two years after he was replaced by Mishaal bin Abdullah.

The new king, however, kept in place Abdullah’s other son Miteb as the Minister of the National Guard.

King Salman also reshuffled a number of posts in the cabinet, while keeping unchanged the oil, foreign, finance, defense, interior, labor, transport and economy, and planning ministers.

The 79-year-old king also eliminated a dozen councils and specialized committees while creating two main bodies for security and economy affairs.

The former king died on January 23 at the age of 90 after weeks of being hospitalized with a lung infection. He had suffered frequent periods of ill health in recent years.

The new monarch, who has suffered at least one stroke that has left him with limited movement on his left arm and is believed to be suffering from Alzheimer’s, is taking over at a time when King Abdullah’s demise is expected to fuel a power struggle within the ruling family.

His succeeding to the throne also coincides with the kingdom’s grappling with dissent in the east and the region’s attempting to deal with the repercussions of the terrorism funded and the extremism exported by Riyadh.

Riyadh has also turned into a butt of criticism for sending shockwaves throughout the international economy by allegedly fixing oil prices.

Nuclear arsenal will ensure military edge over NATO, United States, Russia says

Thomas Grove — Reuters Jan 30, 2015

The chief of Russia’s armed forces said on Friday a strong nuclear arsenal will ensure military superiority over the West as Russia seeks to fulfill a multi-billion dollar plan to modernize its forces by 2020.

Russia, facing a likely recession this year after U.S. and European sanctions over Ukraine and a fall in oil prices, must deal with new forms of Western aggression, including economic confrontation, said armed forces chief Gen. Valery Gerasimov.

Despite deep economic woes, he said Russian armed forces would receive more than 50 new intercontinental nuclear missiles this year.

“Support for our strategic nuclear forces to ensure their high military capability combined with…growth of the military potential of the general forces will assure that (the United States and NATO) do not gain military superiority over our country,” said Gerasimov.

Tensions between Russia and the West have risen over the conflict in eastern Ukraine, where the United States and Europe say Moscow is fueling an insurgency by sending in troops and weapons. Moscow denies this.

Russia has criticized NATO expansion in eastern Europe and President Vladimir Putin has accused the Ukrainian army, which is fighting pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, of being puppets of NATO with a policy of “containing” Russia.

Russian military planes increasingly have been spotted over Europe on radar in recent months. Britain summoned the Russian ambassador on Thursday for an explanation to the flight of two Russian long-range bombers that flew over the English Channel, forcing British authorities to reroute civil aircraft.

Russia promises to push through by 2020 a more than 20-trillion-rouble ($286.62 billion) military modernisation plan conceived by Putin, and military expenditures will remain unchanged even in the face of a growing economic crisis that has cut the budgets of other ministries.

The modernisation project aims to revamp Russia’s weapons systems to assure that 70-100 percent of the armed forces weapons and equipment has been modernized by the end of the decade — a plan confirmed by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

“We plan to fulfill the government armament program and reach by 2020 the intended quantities of modern weapons systems,” he said at the meeting.

Speaking against a backdrop of rising prices brought on in part by a weaker rouble, Gerasimov said Russia had to deal with new forms of Western aggression.

“Western countries are actively using new forms of aggression, combining military as well as non-military means. Political, economic and information methods are also being used,” Interfax news agency cited him as saying.

“Jewish” Control – A Fait Accompli 125 Years Ago

henrymakow.com — Jan 29, 2015

LaCiviltaCattolicaLa Civiltà Cattolica (Italian for Catholic Civilization) is a periodical published without interruption by the Jesuits in Rome, Italy since 1850 and is among the oldest of Catholic Italian periodicals. All of the journals articles are the collective responsibility of the entire “college” even if published under a single author’s name. It is the only one to be directly supervised by the Secretariat of State of the Holy See and to receive its approval before being published.
An 1890 article in an official Vatican publication puts the NWO in perspective.

by Henry Makow Ph.D

We need to go back to 1890 to understand what has taken place. An article in the official Vatican periodical La Civilta Cattolica dated 23 Oct. 1890 reveals how Catholics perceived Jews 125 years ago. The article confirms that humanity has been colonized by a satanic cult, Cabalist Judaism, using Freemasonry, which is Jewish Cabala for Gentiles. Society is indeed satanically possessed.”

Our political and cultural leadership are “straw men” — fronts for the Cabalist (i.e. Illuminati Jewish) central bankers. This is why our “leaders” are such perverts and non-entities. To ensure they toe the line, they are filmed in compromising sexual situations. To ensure the whole rotten structure doesn’t collapse, the bankers have erected a police state, using terrorism (which they instigate) as a pretext. “Democracy” is an elaborate charade.
Multiculturalism and diversity, feminism and homosexuality, Muslim and Latin in-migration are employed to divide and destabilize. Most people are willing to “go along to get along”, to collaborate in their own enslavement.
Success generally depends on support for the Judeo Masonic (Illuminati) world government agenda. Ordinary Jews are not aware of this agenda. Jews and non-Jews alike suffer from a false consciousness, although they don’t know it.

Why the Elite Are Buying Secret Hideaways

Paul Joseph Watson — propagandamatrix.com Jan 29, 2015

This week’s revelation that the wealthy are purchasing secret hideaways in remote locations in order to escape social upheaval and possible riots is the culmination of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s warning that a worldwide “political awakening” is serving to derail the move towards further global centralization of power.

Economist Robert Johnson made headlines at the recent Davos Economic Forum when he revealed that “hedge fund managers all over the world….are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.”

Johnson cited income inequality and the potential for civil unrest and riots as the reason for the panic.

“A lot of wealthy and powerful people are quite afraid right now – they see us on an unstable trajectory,” said Johnson. “As the system doesn’t have proper resources, as it doesn’t represent people, things are getting more and more dangerous as say Ferguson, Missouri brings to bear.”

However, Johnson’s warning is nothing new – the super rich have been busy securing property in safe heavens for at least five years in anticipation of the next financial collapse.

In 2010, John Malone, billionaire chairman of Liberty Media, announced that he had bought a retreat on the Quebec border as an insurance policy to “have a place to go if things blow up here,” adding that he was concerned about the survival of the dollar and whether or not “America (was) going to make it” through the economic crisis.

In 2012, Hollywood director James Cameron also announced his decision to leave America and move his entire family to a 1,067 hectare farm in New Zealand.

The Bush family also purchased 100,000 acres in Paraguay back as far back as 2006.

There are several reasons why the rich are preparing to flee, but the main factor is the rise of income inequality – a factor that Zbigniew Brzezinski blamed for the “global political awakening” that poses a direct threat to the elite’s bid to further centralize power.

“For the first time in all of human history mankind is politically awakened – that’s a total new reality – it has not been so for most of human history,” said Brzezinski during a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal, adding that the development was borne out of “global inequities, inequalities, lack of respect, exploitation”.

Brzezinski made similar comments during a November 2012 speech in Poland, in which he admitted that a worldwide “resistance” movement to “external control” driven by “populist activism” is threatening to derail the move towards a new world order.

The former US National Security Advisor also noted that “persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples to external control has proven to be increasingly difficult to suppress.”

It is important to note that Brzezinski was not championing this development. In his 1970 book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technotronic Era, the former Obama advisor heralded the arrival of a technotronic era “dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values” under which citizens would be tightly controlled and manipulated.

The likelihood of widespread disenfranchisement and economic turbulence causing civil unrest has also been repeatedly invoked by economist Martin Armstrong, who correctly predicted the 1987 Black Monday crash as well as the 1998 Russian financial collapse.

“It looks more and more like a serious political uprising will erupt by 2016 once the economy turns down. That is the magic ingredient. Turn the economy down and you get civil unrest and revolution,” wrote Armstrong.

With distrust in government and leadership in the United States and other western countries continuing to remain near historic lows, the toxic cocktail of increased corruption, social alienation, and lack of community (all contributory factors to the 2011 London riots), will heighten the risk of domestic disorder.

As real wages drop it will also become increasingly harder to pacify younger generations via consumer culture. With religion, family and social mobility all declining in influence, lifestyles built around the acquisition of products will become harder to maintain as the economic environment worsens and the wealth gap widens.

Police brutality and perceived widespread injustice will also lead to more unrest in poorer areas as unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri last year.

While the move on behalf of the wealthy to purchase property in safe heavens by no means signifies a relinquishing of power, it does indicate that the super rich are readying insurance policies in the form of secret getaways in case massive political unrest leads to sustained domestic turmoil.

Alexa Sucks

Rebel of Oz — Jan 30, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, I blasted Amazon owned Alexa for obviously cooking the books in order to artificially reducing the search engine ranking of dissident websites.

Today, I read a similar complaint by Jim Stone on his website, causing me to cancel my Alexa account.
What made me lose my patience with Alexa was a comparison between Jim’s server stats and mine, put into perspective with the ‘certified’ Alexa rankings of our two sites.
Here are Jim’s stats for this month.

As you can see, the Rebel Site compares favourably with Jim Stone’s website. In almost all countries my page views are higher than Jim’s. Now compare that to the certified Alexa ranking of our two sites.

Comparison of the Alexa ranking of JimStoneFreelance.com and therebel.website on 30 January 2015. Click to enlarge

As you can see, JimStoneFreelance.com’s Alexa ranking is 3.5 times higher than that of therebel.website, when the Rebel Website should be ranked higher.
There are two kinds of objections Alexa routinely makes when caught cheating. I’m going to counter them in advance.
1. The therebel.website domain name is only about one month old, before the site’s default domain name was therebel.org) and the Alexa ranking number is calculated based on three months of data.
You can’t see it all that well from the displayed screenshot, but the Alexa ranking of therebel.website has been fairly stable since January 15. If the low ranking of The Rebel was distorted by the 3 months calculation, it should have gone up consistently, when in fact it went slightly down.
2. The therebel.website’s Alexa stats are ‘certified’, that is based on a script embedded in the head section of all our web pages, making sure, Alexa is aware of every hit to any page on the site. The jimstonefreelance.com Alexa stats are ‘estimated’, which means they are statistically calculated based on data from users who have installed the Alexa plugin for their browsers.
This makes even less sense. If the Rebel Website’s Alexa ranking is based on ‘certified’ data, whereas jimstonefreelance.com’s Alexa ranking is solely based on estimates, how can Alexa justify giving Jim Stone’s website a 3.5 times higher ranking, if The Rebel’s pageviews are higher than his.
It’s obvious that Alexa is cooking the books. They are manipulating the ranking of dissident sites, depending on how much they dislike them, in order to make them rank higher or lower in search engines such as Bing, Yahoo and Google. They want to make sure that links to sites like mine, that consistently publish articles that are embarassing for our ruling parasties, don’t show up prominently on the search engines.
I leave it to my readers to conclude why those low lifes al Alexa would prefer internet users to find a page on Jim Stone’s website than on The Rebel. Personally, I believe it’s got to do with my ‘proudly anti-Semitic’ attitude.

The prisoner swap has only one purpose for the militants – recognition its Islamic State exists and that foreign nations acknowledge its power

However tragic the ending, the weird and unprecedented prisoner swap – of a failed suicide bomber, an air force pilot and a journalist – has only one purpose for Isis: recognition that its Islamic State exists and that foreign nations acknowledge its power.

You only had to listen to the number of reporters talking in the last few hours about “the Islamic State” – without the usual “so-called”and “self-styled” in front of it – to realize that we are already, with scarcely a thought for the consequences, accepting the Caliphate as a viable, if illegitimate, nation. Forget the original demand for cash – Isis is funneling the stuff in from its friends in the Arab Gulf – because a Jordanian king and a Japanese deputy foreign minister are more valuable than a billion dollars. By agreeing to negotiate over hostages, in however confusing a fashion, they have given the Islamic Sate their own imprimatur. Last autumn, the State introduced its own currency. Now the State talks to other sovereign nations, albeit through intermediaries. Soon, no doubt, we can expect Isis to have that other necessary accoutrement of modern statehood: an airline. Then it only has to wait for the West to identify the ‘moderates’ in the Islamic State – and I suppose we’ll all be able to go and chat to Caliph al-Baghdadi himself.

Of course, there’s a Jordanian side to all this. King Abdullah’s Sunni Muslim subjects have never been very enthusiastic about signing up to the West’s war on the Sunni Muslim Islamic State, and many Jordanians – especially the Palestinian majority of the country – see no reason why Jordan’s military should be trying to destroy Isis’ occupation of parts of Syria and Iraq when another foreign occupation exists rather closer to Amman. When Muath al-Kasaesbeh’s own father appealed to the Islamic State to free his son – another gift of recognition to Isis – the King was in no position to turn him down. The King of Jordan’s duty to protect his people may be more robustly carried out than that of our own prime ministers and presidents towards their citizens, but it is real nonetheless.

Besides, almost every Western nation has made contact, however tenuously, with the Islamic State. The British, according to Arab officials who should know, have in the past sent messages to the lads in Raqqa through an Iraqi intermediary. The French, too. Saying that you “don’t do business with terrorists” or that you “don’t reward terrorists” is nonsense. Israel has uttered these words a thousand times yet, it has released literally thousands of prisoners in return for captured or dead Israeli soldiers – most recently in Lebanon and through its usual intermediary: the head of the German secret service.

But sovereign territory means a lot in politics; that’s why the ‘Islamic State’ wants to free a suicide bomber who was not only a member of its (supposed) enemy, al-Qaeda, and not only a failure – her husband blew himself up and killed 60 innocents when she did not do so – but a woman as well! Are we to believe, on top of this, that an institution that has slaughtered thousands of prisoners – Iraqi soldiers, Syrian soldiers, Shia Muslims and Christians and Yazidis and enslaved women – really cares about a single human life? But sovereign territory has a meaning for the Hezbollah as well.

Despite the dozens of newspaper and television reports on the rockets that killed two Israel soldiers on “the Israeli border” on Wednesday, this is untrue. The soldiers were attacked inside the border of Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan – or, if you believe the old French mandate maps, inside Lebanese territory which has been occupied since the 1973 Middle East war. Israel’s annexation of the Golan under Israeli law means nothing, since the world does not accept such annexation. So when the Hezbollah announced that the death of the two Israeli soldiers was retaliation for the Israelis’ drone attack on Hezbollah and Iranian forces in Syria 11 days ago, they specifically chose to take their revenge against Israeli military personnel who were not inside Israel itself.

A small point, but both the Hezbollah and the Israelis understand this, whatever they may say to the contrary. Borders matter – which is why one of the first acts of the ‘Islamic State’ was to bulldoze the sand berms along the old Sykes-Picot frontier that separates – or separated – Syria and Iraq. Flt-Lt al-Kasaesbeh, failed bomber Sajida al-Rishawi and journalist Kenji Goto – whether they realise it or not – are part of this frontier re-drawing.

Gorbachev Warns of ‘Hot War’ Between Russia and the West

Introduction — Jan 29, 2015

Mikhail Gorbachev may be portrayed as an elder statesman but like Henry Kissinger he’s still very much an insider. That makes him worth listening to, not because he’s especially perceptive or wise but because to some extent he’s in on the game plan.
In other words he’s privy to what the elite have planned.
Without wishing to sound alarmist it’s an inescapable fact that the pieces for a much wider conflict between Russia and the West are now being put into place.
The Western military is steadily encroaching across eastern Europe, from Poland through Ukraine towards Russia’s western borders. As it does so Russia is forging stronger ties with a potential ally and long time Western adversary, Iran.
Meanwhile Moscow’s envoy to European security watchdog OSCE has warned that “big catastrophe” could lie ahead.
“I would like to appeal to the representatives of countries that have influence on Ukraine’s leadership, most of all to Washington: It’s time to stop indulging Ukraine’s ‘party of war,’” said Russia’s envoy to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Andrei Kelin.
“Only a big catastrophe can result from this if developments continue to evolve in [the current] direction,” Kelin told a meeting of the group in Vienna on Thursday.
So the writing is on the wall and may only be a matter of time before another major military conflict unfolds. Ed.

Gorbachev: Ukraine could explode into ‘hot war’ between Russia and the West

Robert Marquand — Christian Science Monitor Jan 29, 2015

Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet Union’s last leader and widely credited for helping end the cold war, today blamed the West and the US in particular for “dragging” Russia into what he says could be a larger, “hot war” over Ukraine.

“Unfortunately I cannot say for sure that a cold war won’t lead to a ‘hot’ one,” Mr. Gorbachev was quoted. “I fear they could take the risk.”

In comments to Interfax news service, Mr. Gorbachev weighed in on the Ukraine crisis, which has taken more than 5,000 lives since the spring, saying an American thirst for “dominance” is behind the crisis.

“Where will that lead all of us?” he said. “A cold war is already being waged openly. What’s next?”

In recent weeks, fighting has again sharply escalated along Ukraine’s eastern border with Russia, in violation of a cease-fire inked last fall.

With billions in aid to cash-strapped Ukraine promised in recent days by the US and the European Union, and with more sanctions aimed at Moscow, whose forces and military support to rebels have been cycling back and forth across the border, Gorbachev lashed out especially against sanctions:

“All you hear is about sanctions towards Russia from America and the European Union. Have they totally lost their heads?”

For years, the West has considered former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev a voice for understanding, dialogue, and restraint – even as he is widely pilloried in Russia for his role in helping dismantle the Soviet communist empire under his policies of glasnost and perestroika.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Mr. Gorbachev’s strategies of greater openness and economic restructuring were the worst thing to ever happen to the former empire, and Gorbachev has in turn called Mr. Putin’s Russia a “fake democracy.”

Last fall, Gorbachev said the Ukraine crisis was dangerously teetering toward war and called on the West and Russia to “defrost” it through specific dialogue and meetings. At the time he blamed “both sides” in the crisis in articles on his Gorbachev Foundation website:

” … both sides of the Ukrainian conflict have been violating the terms of the ceasefire; both sides are guilty of using dangerous types of weapons and violating human rights ..”.

Yet in recent months, the former Soviet leader has changed some of his internationalist stripes, and he has made nods toward the approval of Putin’s policies in claiming territory in Russia’s so-called near abroad. Gorbachev is on record saying that Russia’s de facto annex of the Crimean Peninsula is legitimate, and corrects a historical mistake – a position of changed borders not accepted by much of the world community.

Meanwhile, this week in Ukraine itself, Russian troops and materiel have continued to filter in to aid rebels fighting Kiev’s forces. Satellite imagery, the NATO Secretary-General, and a variety of NGOs such as Doctors Without Borders have fingered Moscow for backing the rebels across the border.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko last week told a group at Davos, Switzerland, that 9,000 Russian troops were operating in Ukraine, and this week the Ukrainian parliament voted to designate the two principal rebel forces in Donestk and Luhansk as “terrorist” organizations.

On Tuesday, all 28 EU leaders – in unusual unanimity – issued a joint statement about security and humanitarian conditions in eastern Ukraine. They criticized rebels’ “indiscriminate shelling” of the coastal city of Mariupol that killed 30 people. That action followed rebel gains in Donetsk last week, after Ukrainian forces gave up part of an airport they had held since the fall.

The US and EU also this week pledged some $4 billion in aid and loans to the Ukrainian government in Kiev.

The Economist this week argues that the Ukraine crisis has slowly morphed into a war that is more serious than generally realized. It also rejected the much-discussed idea that Mr. Putin is looking for ways to back away from the conflict.

“The fighting is picking up momentum along the entire front. On January 24th a barrage of rockets struck civilian neighbourhoods on the eastern edge of Mariupol, a strategic Ukrainian port city, killing 30 and wounding scores. One senior Ukrainian official described it as “genocide”. Alexander Zakharchenko, the Donetsk rebel leader, told an emotional crowd that the attack on Mariupol was “the best possible monument to all our dead”. Russia blamed Kiev for the deaths; hours after his first statement, a chastened Mr Zakharchenko walked back his bluster on Russian television. But analysis of the impact craters by experts from Human Rights Watch and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe suggests the rockets were fired from rebel-held areas.

“The shelling of Mariupol puts added pressure on the West to respond to the rebel push, one that NATO now says is backed by Russian troops. Many in the West hoped that sanctions, falling oil prices, and international isolation would coax Vladimir Putin into a compromise. Instead, further violence in Ukraine has become a “means of blackmail” for Mr. Putin, argues Lilia Shevtsova of the Brookings Institution.”

Deep in the Mangrove Swamp with a Broken Leg and a Busted Crutch

Smoking Mirrors — Jan 29, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
I’m getting a little annoyed at that ‘cold and wet’ maxim. It’s fine if I am writing this in a kennel or a dog pound; then again, one might not be altogether remiss in assuming I am doing exactly that after a fashion. Since the dog symbolizes desire and we live in a world ruled by it… well. Right.
One of the things that happens to the human consciousness when it is immersed in material culture is that it forgets what it actually is and begins to accept the identity programmed into it by the force of materialism, thus rendering this potentially cosmos embracing force into that of a mindless consumer, being herded in one direction after another by the hidden persuaders. Most of humanity is then rendered into hundreds of millions of pinballs bouncing into bumpers that generate lights and noises. It doesn’t matter how proficient the player is, eventually the pinball goes down the bottom chute. After that, all sense of play and engagement in the magnetic fields of delusional life ends; at least for the moment… a new game… a new life… maybe the playing field looks different. It is still on an incline though and the same way that casinos make incredible profits, regardless of the occasional big winners is because the odds favor the house.
Millions of people fly in and out of Las Vegas every year. Why they go there can be for several reasons. They are hopeful they will win something. Usually they will not. They are hoping that something exciting will happen to them. Since excitement can manifest in positive and negative ways, they can count on something exciting happening (grin). They go there hoping something fantastic, at least in the eye of the imagination will occur; they will meet someone and romance will result. They will hire someone and some rough facsimile of romance will occur. They’ve heard what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Good luck with that. I have never been to Vegas. I might as well put an ad on Craig’s List for a vampire to come to my house and suck all the blood from my body. I don’t see the difference between that and going to Vegas.
People lose fortunes there all the time. They seldom win any. I am sure you can find all kinds of things there. If you have the money. Depending on what your tastes are, you’ll need more than money to get it done and get on your way without hassle further on. The way the world works these days is much like the carrot on the stick with a horse, except there is no carrot there. It is perhaps a holographic carrot, or a sexual device cosmeticized to resemble a carrot but which you would be advised not to eat. In the case of most people, they don’t eat carrots anyway. A truly unfortunate number of people these days eat no vegetables at all. Life long card carrying Satanist, George, Stroll Walker, Bush must have meditated for years upon his opportunity to tell the nation that he hated Broccoli and one of the perks of being an adult was that he never had to eat it again. A bit of research into the many health wonders of Broccoli will clear up any mystery about why he said what he did. I can’t remember if this was before or after he threw up into the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister. I’m thinking what caused it is some wag added holy water in the Miso Soup.
Bread and Circuses… lottery tickets… thousands and thousands of contests and raffles… introductory offers of all sorts that snag you in with a free first month or some pointless gratuity (over the long haul,)… free hotel rooms if you are going to throw away a certain amount of money… Free airline flights… Internecine wars between cellphone companies and cable companies and every company anywhere competing for money that doesn’t need to be spent there. It is now one gigantic carnival of toxic lights and sounds… suicidal dietary choices… hot and cold running alcohol… pharmaceuticals with so many side effects mentioned in their commercials that if you don’t break out laughing when you hear them being listed, something is wrong with your mind and if you actually use these things, something is absolutely wrong with your mind.
Let us address some of the techniques and principals illustrated here at different intervals. They didn’t just waft out of some geothermal vent. They have been presented because there are some unpleasant agendas at work and these techniques give one a fighting chance to get through or around the pervasive enemy action being directed at you. Tactics of enslavement in a material culture are pretty straightforward, once you acknowledge that the practitioners are completely bent out of shape according to any moral or human schematic. They seek to separate you from your fellows. They set you in conflict with each other based on skin color and creed, as well as political preferences. They bewilder you with a blizzard of disposable items. They create tension between the sexes and they amplify the power and importance of tiny demographics of alternative sexual persuasion. Oh… they are busy night and day with endless lies, generated fears and every kind of havoc that they can manifest. They are engaged in telepathic invasions and they are engaged in all manner of mind control; some of it is the result of technology and some of it is a little more arcane.
When one performs empty mind disciplines they naturally evict the mind parasites and neutralize lower register parasites and invaders. When one practices any of the simple and effective techniques that come and go around here, one has a much better chance of negotiating the relentless assaults being generated by some seriously evil entities. You are in a much better position to maintain a positive mindset and in a much better position to get useful advice because the interference has been cut back.
These are difficult times. For some, these are very difficult times. If you don’t have certain timeless survival skills, the road you will be herded onto is going to take you all the way up Shit Creek and leave you in a Mangrove swamp with a broken leg and a busted crutch. These fiends don’t just come around now and again like a couple of Mormons or Jehovah’s Witless. They are full time committed to your destruction on every level they can cause it to occur on. Unless your head is filled with Milk Duds or Styrofoam popcorn, you should have some idea of how it has all been trending and who it is that has been taking it on the chin and other areas of the human anatomy.
If you CAN’T SEE what is going on, you are in big trouble. If you can’t see what is going on, that means someone else is controlling what you see and how you see it. You are not seeing what is going on, you are seeing a fake video where the camera has been shut down and the interface diverted to manufactured data with nothing but false impressions. Experience false impressions for even a fairly short while and you take them for granted as the real thing. Broad Daylight Awareness shuts down the phony data stream and turns on the camera again.
Sometimes the challenges that we face are intimidating. I just passed out of such a sequence not long ago; not long ago at all. Persistence furthers and I’ve been persistentt and I was persistent. It didn’t look good for awhile. It might not look so good again further on but “that’s life. That’s what they say.” I cannot understand why the movie wants to stay in the same thematic so often. The most frustrating thing seems to be that regardless of one’s dedication to personal change, one is not permitted to change anything, nor does one know what it is one is supposed to change. Well… it appears that ‘keep on keeping on’ will suffice when one has no effective solutions. It is one thing to be feeling your way in the dark and quite another to have the walls and the floor moving at inopportune moments.
Personally, I have long passed the demarcation light between ridiculous and absurd. I see the same thing happening in the world around me. I have come to see that patterning and conditioning are very powerful weapons of influence. Throw in the natural inclination of most people to cooperate with authority and add in the natural inclination of people to obey and respect authority, for any number of bizarre reasons, even when the evidence on the surface shows those authorities to be criminal and corrupt to an appalling degree. There’s more going on than the Maytag repairman in the laundry room.
Today I finally got internet in my little yurt office and the TV system went into effect within the same small window of time, in a completely unrelated way. It was like someone came in and waved a magic wand. Now… I don’t watch TV but maybe there is something I’m supposed to see soon or maybe I’m supposed to get a little more familiar with what they are up to there. I was moving around the channels and I came across an advert for something called “My Big Fat Fabulous Life?” I can’t remember exactly what the title was. I saw some scenes. It appears to be about a woman who weighs somewhere around 500 pounds and the word ‘grotesque’ comes to mind. I’m sure you can find vids of what I am talking about. It looks like some kind of reality TV thing. It was designed to look as shallow and depraved as possible. I’m guessing there are dozens of these programs running around at the moment. It ain’t accidental. The news is not accidental. The daily policy of church and state is not accidental or coincidental. There is some kind of perverse purpose to it all. I think I’ve mentioned a time or too what my take on it all is. You probably have your thoughts too.
At the moment everything just out of the tunnel. Maybe that’s the end of it for a bit, unless I happen to be taking a train through Switzerland.
End Transmission…….

The Director of an Anti-NWO Movie Was Found Dead in his Home in Suspicious Circumstances

Vigilant Citizen — vigilantcitizem.com

David Crowley, the director of “Gray State”, a movie about the New World Order and the occult mind-state of the elite was found dead in his home, along with his wife and young daughter. The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office stated that the deaths appeared “suspicious”.

leadgraystate

David Crowley wrote and directed Gray State, an unfinished movie about the militarization of police, the imposition of a martial law, high tech surveillance, RFID chips and the occult mind-state behind it all. The movie’s Facebook page states that the story is about “a wounded veteran who leads the insurgency against a corrupt Government after nationwide martial law has been declared.” Here’s the concept trailer of the movie.

In a 2012 InfoWars interview, Crowley stated that he felt it was his responsibly to spread the message about the possibility of a United States decline in wake of a New World Order. The interview describes the film as “a highly-anticipated independent film envisioning a brutal police state, martial law crackdown, complete with biometric identification, a ubiquitous surveillance state, and FEMA storm-troopers rounding dissidents up into camps.”

Israel confirms Hezbollah not interested in escalation

Y Net News — Jan 29, 2015

Israel said on Thursday it received a message from Hezbollah that it was backing away from further violence, a day after the worst clashes in years erupted along the border.

The Israel-Lebanon frontier, where two IDF soldiers and a Spanish peacekeeper were killed in an exchange of fire between Hezbollah and Israel, appeared quiet early on Thursday.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Israel had received a message from a UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon that Hezbollah was not interested in further escalation.

“Indeed, a message was received,” he said. “There are lines of coordination between us and Lebanon via UNIFIL (the UN force) and such a message was indeed received from Lebanon.”

In Beirut, Hezbollah officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

“I can’t say whether the events are behind us,” Ya’alon added in a separate radio interview. “Until the area completely calms down, the Israel Defense Forces will remain prepared and ready.”

The Israeli soldiers were killed when Hezbollah fired five missiles at a convoy of Israeli military vehicles. The attack appeared to be in retaliation for a January 18 air strike in southern Syria – attributed to Israel – that killed several Hezbollah members and an Iranian general.

The peacekeeper in southern Lebanon was killed as Israel responded with air strikes and artillery fire, a UN spokesman and Spanish officials said.

Spain’s ambassador to the United Nations is blaming Israel for the death.”It was because of this escalation of violence, and it came from the Israeli side,” Spanish Ambassador Roman Oyarzun Marchesi told reporters.

The UN peacekeeper has been identified as Cpl. Francisco Javier Soria Toledo, 36, and UN officials have said only that the cause of his death is under investigation. The Security Council condemned the peacekeeper’s death in the strongest terms and offered its deepest sympathies.

Social Credit- A Simple Explanation

by Oliver Heydorn Ph.D. — (henrymakow.com) Jan 28, 2015

The founder of the Social Credit movement, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas 1879-1952

The founder of the Social Credit movement, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas 1879-1952

Social Credit refers to the ideas of the brilliant Anglo-Scottish engineer, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas (1879-1952).
Douglas identified what is wrong with the industrial economy and also explained how to fix it.
The core problem is that there is never enough money to buy what we produce. In essence, people don’t earn enough to afford the plethora of available consumer goods and services.
This gap is caused by many factors. Profits, including profits derived from interest on loans, is only one of them. Savings and the re-investment of savings are two others. The most important cause, however, has to do with how real capital (i.e., machines and equipment) builds up costs at a faster rate than it distributes incomes to workers.
The economy must compensate for this recurring gap between prices and incomes. Since most of the money supply is created out of nothing by the banks, the present financial system fills the gap by relying on governments, firms, and consumers to borrow additional money into existence so that the level of consumer buying power can be increased.
As a society we are always mortgaging our future earnings in order to get enough purchasing power so that we can pay present prices in full. Whenever we fail to borrow enough money, the economy stalls and the government may even start a war to reboot it. To the extent that we succeed in bridging the gap, we contribute to the building-up of a mountain of debt that can never be paid off.
Filling the gap with debt-money is also inflationary, wasteful, and puts the whole society on a production-consumption treadmill. It is the prime cause behind social tensions, environmental damage, and international conflict.
All of this dysfunction is tolerated because the banks profit from it. Compensating for the gap transfers wealth and power from the common consumers to the owners of the financial system.

FILLING THE GAP DEBT-FREE

Russia in the cross hairs

Paul Craig Roberts — Press TV Jan 28, 2015

Putin demonised as the new Hitler. Click to enlarge

Putin demonised as the new Hitler. Click to enlarge

The New Chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, has declared the Russian news service, RT, which broadcasts in multiple languages, to be a terrorist organization equivalent to Boko Haram and the Islamic State, and Standard and Poor’s just downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status.

Today RT International interviewed me about these insane developments.

In prior days when America was still a sane country, Lack’s charge would have led to him being laughed out of office. He would have had to resign and disappear from public life. Today in the make-believe world that Western propaganda has created, Lack’s statement is taken seriously. Yet another terrorist threat has been identified–RT. (Although both Boko Haram and the Islamic State employ terror, strictly speaking they are political organizations seeking to rule, not terror organizations, but this distinction would be over Lack’s head. Yes, I know. There is a good joke that could be made here about what Lack lacks. Appropriately named and all that.)

Nevertheless, whatever Lack might lack, I doubt he believes his nonsensical statement that RT is a terrorist organization. So what is his game?

The answer is that the Western presstitute media by becoming Ministries of Propaganda for Washington, have created large markets for RT, Press TV, and Al Jazeera. As more and more of the peoples of the world turn to these more honest news sources, Washington’s ability to fabricate self-serving explanations has declined.

RT in particular has a large Western audience. The contrast between RT’s truthful reporting and the lies spewed by US media is undermining Washington’s control of the explanation. This is no longer acceptable.

Lark has sent a message to RT. The message is: pull in your horns; stop reporting differently from our line; stop contesting the facts as Washington states them and the presstitutes report them; get on board or else.

In other words, the “free speech” that Washington and its EU, Canadian, and Australian puppet states tout means: free speech for Washington’s propaganda and lies, but not for any truth. Truth is terrorism, because truth is the major threat to Washington.

Washington would prefer to avoid the embarrassment of actually shutting down RT as its UK vassal did to Press TV. Washington simply wants to shut up RT. Lark’s message to RT is: self-censure.

In my opinion, RT already understates in its coverage and reporting as does Al Jazeera. Both news organizations understand that they cannot be too forthright, at least not too often or on too many occasions.

I have often wondered why the Russian government allows 20 percent of the Russian media to function as Washington’s fifth column inside Russia. I suspect the reason is that by tolerating Washington’s blatant propaganda inside Russia, the Russian government hopes that some factual news can be reported in the US via RT and other Russian news organizations.

These hopes, like other Russian hopes about the West, are likely to be disappointed in the end. If RT is closed down or assimilated into the Western presstitute media, nothing will be said about it, but if the Russian government closes down Washington’s agents, blatant liars all, in the Russian media, we will hear forever about the evil Russians suppressing “free speech.” Remember, the only allowable “free speech” is Washington’s propaganda.

Only time will tell whether RT decides to be closed down for telling the truth or whether it adds its voice to Washington’s propaganda.

The other item in the interview was the downgrading of Russian credit to junk status.

Standard and Poor’s downgrade is, without any doubt, a political act. It proves what we already know, and that is that the American rating firms are corrupt political operations. Remember the Investment Grade rating the American rating agencies gave to obvious subprime junk? These rating agencies are paid by Wall Street, and like Wall Street they serve the US government.

A look at the facts serves to establish the political nature of the ruling. Don’t expect the corrupt US financial press to look at the facts. But right now, we will look at the facts.

Indeed, we will put the facts in context with the US debt situation.

According to the debt clocks available online, the Russian national debt as a percentage of Russian GDP is 11 percent. The American national debt as a percentage of US GDP is 105 percent, about ten times higher. My coauthors, Dave Kranzler, John Williams, and I have shown that when measured correctly, the US debt as a percent of GDP is much higher than the official figure.

The Russian national debt per capita is $1,645. The US national debt per capita is
$56,952.

The size of Russia’s national debt is $235 billion, less than one quarter of a trillion. The size of the US national debt is $18 trillion, 76.6 times larger than the Russian debt.

Putting this in perspective: according to the debt clocks, US GDP is $17.3 trillion and Russian GDP is $2.1 trillion. So, US GDP is 8 times greater than Russian GDP, but US national debt is 76.6 times greater than Russia’s debt.

Clearly, it is the US credit rating that should have been downgraded to junk status. But this cannot happen. Any US credit rating agency that told the truth would be closed and prosecuted. It wouldn’t matter what the absurd charges are. The rating agencies would be guilty of being anti-american, terrorist organizations like RT, etc. and so on, and they know it. Never expect any truth from any Wall Street denizen. They lie for a living.

According to this site: http://people.howstuffworks.com/5-united-states-debt-holders.htm#page=4 the US owes Russia as of January 2013 $162.9 billion. As the Russian national debt is $235 billion, 69 percent of the Russian national debt is covered by US debt obligations to Russia.

If this is a Russian Crisis, I am Alexander the Great.

As Russia has enough US dollar holdings to redeem its entire national debt and have a couple hundred billion dollars left, what is Russia’s problem?

One of Russia’s problems is its central bank. For the most part, Russian economists are the same neoliberal incompetents that exist in the Western world. The Russian economists are enamored of their contacts with the “superior” West and with the prestige that they image these contacts give them. As long as the Russian economists agree with the Western ones, they get invited to conferences abroad. These Russian economists are de facto American agents whether they realize it or not.

Currently, the Russian central bank is squandering the large Russian holdings of foreign reserves in support of the Western attack on the ruble. This is a fools’ game that no central bank should play. The Russian central bank should remember, or learn if it does not know, Soros’ attack on the Bank of England.

Russian foreign reserves should be used to retire the outstanding national debt, thus making Russia the only country in the world without a national debt. The remaining dollars should be dumped in coordinated actions with China to destroy the dollar, the power basis of American Imperialism.

Alternatively, the Russian government should announce that its reply to the economic warfare being conducted against Russia by the government in Washington and Wall Street rating agencies is default on its loans to Western creditors. Russia has nothing to lose as Russia is already cut off from Western credit by US sanctions. Russian default would cause consternation and crisis in the European banking system, which is exactly what Russia wants in order to break up Europe’s support of US sanctions.

In my opinion, the neoliberal economists who control Russian economic policy are a much greater threat to the sovereignty of Russia than economic sanctions and US missile bases. To survive Washington, Russia desperately needs people who are not romantic about the West.

To dramatize the situation, if President Putin will grant me Russian citizenship and allow me to appoint Michael Hudson and Nomi Prins as my deputies, I will take over the operation of the Russian central bank and put the West out of operation.

But that would require Russia taking risks associated with victory. The Atlanticist Integrationists inside the Russian government want victory for the West, not for Russia. A country imbued with treason inside the government itself has reduced chance against Washington, a determined player.

Another fifth column operating against Russia from within are the US and German funded NGOs. These American agents masquerade as “human rights organizations,” as “women’s rights organizations,” as “democracy organizations,” and whatever other cant titles that serve in a politically correct age and are unchallengeable.

Yet another threat to Russia comes from the percentage of the Russian youth who lust for the depraved culture of the West. Sexual license, pornography, drugs, self-absorption. These are the West’s cultural offerings. And, of course, killing Muslims.

If Russians want to kill people for the fun of it and to solidify US hegemony over themselves and the world, they should support “Atlanticist integration” and turn their backs on Russian nationalism. Why be Russian if you can be American serfs?

What better result for the American neoconservatives than to have Russia support Washington’s hegemony over the world? That is what the neoliberal Russian economists and the “European Integrationists” support. These Russians are willing to be American serfs in order to be part of the West and to be paid well for their treason.

As I was interviewed about these developments by RT, the news anchor kept trying to confront Washington’s charges with the facts. It is astonishing that the Russian journalists do not understand that facts have nothing to do with it. The Russian journalists, those independent of American bribes, think that facts matter in the disputes about Russian actions. They think that the assaults on civilians by the American supported Ukrainian Nazis is a fact. But, of course no such fact exists in the Western media. In the Western media the Russians, and only the Russians, are responsible for violence in Ukraine.

Washington’s story line is that it is the evil Putin’s intent on restoring the Soviet Empire that is the cause of the conflict. This media line in the West has no relationship to any facts.

In my opinion, Russia is in grave danger. Russians are relying on facts, and Washington is relying on propaganda. For Washington, facts are not relevant. Russian voices are small compared to Western voices.

The lack of a Russian voice is due to Russia itself. Russia accepted living in a world controlled by US financial, legal, and telecommunication services. Living in this wold means that the only voice is Washington’s.

Why Russia agreed to this strategic disadvantage is a mystery. But as a result of this strategic mistake, Russia is at a disadvantage.

Considering the inroads that Washington has into the Russian government itself, the economically powerful oligarchs and state employees with Western connections, as well as into the Russian media and Russian youth, with the hundreds of American and German financed NGOs that can put Russians into the streets to protest any defense of Russia, Russia’s future as a sovereign country is in doubt.

The American neoconservatives are relentless. Their Russian opponent is weakened by the success inside Russia of Western cold war propaganda that portrays the US as the savior and future of mankind.

The darkness from Sauron America continues to spread over the world.
