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?

That Critical Moment of Passing out of this World

Visible Origami — Feb 26, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
The more I look into it; meaning ancient scripture and less ancient scripture, the most important moment of one’s existence is, ironically, in the hour before their death. It need not be the last hour because… people die suddenly or by accident (not meaning accidentally) and they don’t have an hour available to them. So… let me rework that; the most important moment of one’s existence takes place in the moment(s) before one’s death and that has to do with the focus of their thoughts and feelings. If that happens to be the ineffable then you are good to go, leave or otherwise vacate the scene. If it is not… there is no way that one can consider it a good thing.
One might think it would be an easy thing to remember the ineffable at the moment of death. What other moment in life could be judged more critical? This brings us back to the subject of angels again. There is an angel whose job it is to distract you from thoughts of the ineffable at that time in your life. Only those who have focused on the ineffable more than on anything else in their life are allowed to maintain it at the point of departure. Don’t hassle me about this. Argue the matter with those far more wise and informed than I am. Read about it in the Bhagavad-Gita and other texts that state it unequivocally.
According to the Gita, we are all in a lot of trouble with this because it talks about the status of realized and dedicated yogis and I don’t rate that descriptor, from what I’ve seen of myself but then I figure that the key is love and not so much the incredible requirements of consciousness to reach those rarefied states that seem sometimes so far beyond anything we are capable of. I tend to believe it is the intensity and consistency of our Love that counts and not the degree of our spiritual elevation due to the fortunate karma of having found a guru of such a level that one can be transformed under that guidance without faltering so often as so many of us do. I believe those who love much are forgiven much.
I look back on my life and I see the acting out of one seriously abused person whose childhood was so bad that it generated all sorts of states of madness and lack of self that once the opportunity for certain kinds of divine madness became possible (psychedelics and the enforced monastic states of long periods in confinement) it was fairly easy to achieve. Unfortunately, reckless abandon was a constant feature in the relentless press for every greater experiences. Truth be told the greater truth does not lie in that direction. I’ve come to believe that we are an ongoing experiment of teaching moments, sometimes for others and sometimes for ourselves; sometimes this came about due to positive actions of some sort and sometimes it came about due to mistakes of varying severity; good lessons, bad lessons but always a matter of whether you learned them or not. That’s the important thing. You don’t have to carry the fear of retribution with you if you actually learned from it.
Some of us have a lot of easy highway and some of us have very hard highway and some of us have very very bad highway early on and it lightens and lightens but it takes a really long time and some of us have it very easy in the beginning and it gets harder and harder and some of us just skate entirely and it’s all karma. According to what the ineffable (or his agent) told me, sometimes the things we went through and the things we did does not mean anything like what we think it does. If one or more of our parents (karma) were hard on us we will be hard on ourselves and sometimes hard on others too.
These are seriously dark times and I am of the opinion that only love for the ineffable will work for many of us; certainly I am speaking for myself. It has taken a great deal for me to get to the point I am at and when I look at the route and the incidents I had to pass through to get here, it astounds me that I should have made it through and past all of it. Perhaps I have not. I don’t really know but it is truly weird to make comparisons between all of these points of experience and see that they have culminated in a state where I have absolutely no choice but to rely on the ineffable for everything. It’s a design I have no control over and can do nothing about. None and… every effort to make it more stable or predictably routine ends in failure.
I find it disturbing at times to have to take on the most powerful interests in this world and say things that will brand me for who knows how long as some Don Quixote like creature who has been truly successful at one thing in particular and that being to achieve near total ostracization from every theater of endeavor I work in. It’s perplexing. At the same time I note that I have been able to say things that are against the law in countries where I was in residence and not a single thing happened in that regard ever. Those associated with me over that period of time are mystified by this having been so.
For some time I was occasionally terrorized on an invisible level but that is probably not the best way to put it. Let’s say the effort to do so was there but it didn’t result in that. It was simply degrees of tension I had to live with. I’m not talking about these things for the purpose of self involvement with a wider public but only because, as I have seen, these things so often resonate with the reader in terms of their own lives.
There are many, many events I have never spoken of here. Some of them are so completely outrageous they would test my credibility with those who come here. I live in a very strange syndrome of interaction with invisible worlds and I don’t often understand the meaning of these things. At the same time, this has all gone on for so long that it is what passes for normal with me and none of it is normal in terms of what I see around me every day. At least I have finally come to the point where I am able to behave as if I were everyone else with everyone else because bringing some of these things out would be disturbing to many.
I know that a goodly number; in fact, I would say most of the people who come here are not like most people in this world of the present and it is no accident that this has happened. It is no accident that link hosting sites have cut me out of their operations after some period of time and often with no reason given. Nothing is an accident but boy… it’s difficult to autopsy any of it. You just have to swallow it whole and take is as it is, whether you understand any of it or not.
Ultimately, what matters is that we come to our time of departure and the thought of the ineffable is paramount in our hearts and minds. It doesn’t matter if we are less spiritually evolved than we might wish to be, or are unable to travel to states of bliss at any time we wish to, or be completely free of attachment to anything in this world. Some of us probably feel terribly inadequate on many levels and doubt our ability to devote ourselves as much as we think we must and so we live in fear of transiting without having made the connection we need to make to insure that we will have the ineffable on our minds in the moment that we need to most.
We can only pray as often as it is possible to for the guidance and the strength to come to a state of being where the ineffable is simply more important than anything else; even more important than everything else put together. Once the ineffable sees that we are determined in this course, events will be set into play to bring us to that state of being but the ground over which we must pass to accomplish this may be torturous indeed. Well… we did ask for it, yes? I’m guessing that is what it comes down to, to be willing to go through whatever you have to go through to get there. Perhaps it will not prove as difficult as one imagines it to be because, possibly simply coming to that commitment is all that is required and it is only as hard as we make it when we hold on to the things that we must necessarily put aside.
I don’t know what else to say about this. I believe I have said as much as I have to say on the matter. May God guide and inform you all, according to your faith, certitude and determination.
End Transmission…….

Horror in Hampstead? It Happened.

Crimes of Empire — Feb 21, 2015

Hampstead. The Finders, Belgium and the Franklin Scandal: the Pattern of Cover Up Replayed.

Abused Russian kids HampsteadHampstead is an apparently very wealthy area of Inner London. The Wikipedia entry reads

”Part of the London Borough of Camden in Inner London, it is known for its intellectual, liberal, artistic, musical and literary associations It has some of the most expensive housing in the London area. The village of Hampstead has more millionaires within its boundaries than any other area of the United Kingdom “ So there is a lot of extreme wealth in the area.

Several weeks ago a series of gut wrenching videos emerged of two young children describing in detail their sexual abuse, by a number of individuals including their father and staff at the school they attended, including the head teacher.

The videos also detail their involvement in Satanic rituals that on a number of occasions involved the murder of infants. The title of this piece may be slightly hyperbolic given the suppression of the evidence, but all the signs are of a cover up, none are of a hoax and to claim so is to show a terrible ignorance of recent Western history.

If the allegations are properly investigated and turn out not to be true I will be pleased but I know that it is impossible. We have seen this happen too many times before the pattern is clear and there are unmistakeable signs of a cover up of the Hampstead allegations.
Once you get past the troubling initial shock of the extremity of the claims and the fact that the interviews were conducted by an “interested party” in a custody dispute the allegations made in the footage appear to be sincerely believed by the children of their own volition.

I hope these matters are dealt with by the Courts and would not seek to offer pre-judgement. However, after reading the documents, reading excerpts of the police interview with the children that supposedly “resolved” a “misunderstanding”, having read about these cases and the cover-ups from several places in the West in recent decades. I have no doubt that the original horrendous allegations the children made before the September 17th “debunk” interview are based in fact.
The stories the children tell of satanic blood orgies in churches that included murdered babies, are sadly familiar. These cults of evil are actually rather predominant in certain Western societies, it seems.

Given that many people seem to be having trouble coming to terms with these claims of cover up it seemed a good idea to recount some of the more famous and well documented cover ups of similar behaviour in recent times against the Hampstead story and to see whether these new allegations fit into a well established pattern of cover up, not just of child abuse, but more specifically these apparently elite satanic networks of procurers, abusers and blackmailers (influence peddlers may be a more accurate term). For some reason these type of groups have the ability to achieve very aggressive and complete cover-ups for their crimes.

Obvious Cover Ups that Show the Same pattern as Hampstead.

No.1. The “Finders” group members arrested in Tallahasee on February 4th, 1987.

Right at the start of the “Franklin Scandal” by Nick Bryant is a sub-story about a Cult called the “Finders” who were caught with a van-load of very young and severely abused children in Tallahassee during February 1987. Six children aged 3 to 6 were noticed behaving strangely by a concerned citizen who called the police. The children were malnourished and showed clear signs of sexual abuse. It turned out that the children were also not allowed to live inside and only fed as a reward. The group of eight people were living in a white 1979 Dodge van with Virginia plates.

Two well dressed men were arrested and charged with Felony child abuse. Special Agent Ramon Martinez of the US Customs Service was an investigator assigned to the case. Initially he and a Washington DC Police officer James Bradley made strong progress, receiving a tip off that referred specifically to ” ”blood rituals” sexual orgies involving children and an as yet unsolved murder in which the Finders may be involved.” (Franklin Scandal, Bryant Page 22) and also to two Washington DC warehouses the Finders used.

The warehouses were raided by the police and it seemed that the police had stumbled upon an industrial scale child kidnapping, abuse and trafficking operation. The Finders  collected intelligence on babysitters from the local papers. They collected intelligence on child care centres.  Photos showed the children and adults together dressed in sheets. The photos depicted the slaughter, disembowelment, skinning and dismemberment of a goat by the children. Police also found jars where human waste was stored, both kinds, it seems they saved it to use in their “ceremonies”.

Special Agent Martinez was set to meet his DC colleague Bradley about one month into the investigation. Upon arrival at the meeting he was told it was cancelled, not the meeting, but the entire investigation! Martinez was “further advised… of circumstances that indicated that the Investigation into the activities of the Finders had become an internal CIA matter.”

Meanwhile in Tallahassee an identical scenario unfolded. “The Tallahassee Police dropped the case like a hot rock!” complained one Tallahassee Officer with knowledge of the case.The media coverage reveals an identical pattern to that seen in Hampstead and so many other places. The first wave of Law enforcement are honest, they take the claims seriously and begin to gather evidence, then magically days or weeks later a new policeman will take charge of the case and will completely backtrack, downplay and sabotage the investigation. On other occasions the same police will have an inexplicable mid-investigation “change of mind.”

In the case of the Finders, initial reports from the Tallahassee Police made mention of “clear signs of sexual abuse”, and “apparent satanism” connected to the abuse, a recurring combination. Six days after the original arrests, a new policeman arrived and now described the child kidnapping and rape cult as a “communal” group. There are “no signs” of sexual abuse suddenly nor of Satanism. Initially the felony charges were downgraded to misdemeanors. The men were released and all charges were quietly dropped six weeks later and incredibly the original six tiny, obviously abused children were returned to their tormentors!

The Finders was a protected CIA front and the whole thing became a total no go area immediately. This was a group acting with the approval of a US intelligence agency. They had approval for what they were doing, which was kidnapping and raping children…at best!! The allegations get much worse than mere child abduction and rape.

All these elements of satanism, child abuse and intelligence agency and media  protection are recurring across nations and continents over decades.

Obvious and proven child abuse cover up No.2. Belgium in the 1990’s. The so called Dutroux affair.

Michel Nihoul alleged puppetmaster behind Dutroux. Children were murdered during child abuse parties of which he was the host.

Michel Nihoul alleged puppetmaster behind Dutroux. Children were murdered during child abuse parties of which he was the host.

The same type of thing was discovered in Belgium during the 1990’s. The child rapist and sadistic murderer Marc Dutroux, was apparently supported by and consorting with “Secret state” elements in Belgian society and strenuous effort was made by the Belgian authorities to protect the paragon of evil Dutroux and the procurement operations he was running so that unnamed agencies could maintain their “leverage” over various “senior figures.”

When protecting Dutroux was no longer possible, he was hung  out to dry and all the efforts, extremely intense efforts were made to protect the men who ran Dutroux, his employers, men like Michel Nihoul who once boasted that,”my influence is as long as the Danube” implying that he was protected by very senior figures within the Belgian power structure.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_Nihoul

This passage from Richard Cottrell’s “Gladio NATO’s Dagger at the Heart of Europe” explains how the limited hangout is used to mask these operations when all else fails and someone must be punished. Often the procurer is punished while the broad network remains protected.

“When he (Dutroux)  was in trouble once again in 1996, it transpired key police officers knew he was snatching young female victims to order, who were then subjected to sadistic horrors practised in the dungeons of his slum dwellings scattered around Charleroi, or dragged around the vice circuit. But no one moved against him. As many later reports clearly established, his largely accidental exposure tipped the Belgian establishment into a tailspin. At all costs it was essential to divert the public gaze away from the paedophile network organised around Nihoul, the ringmaster, and beam the spotlight instead on Dutroux, who would act the sacrificial scapegoat. This much became blatantly obvious as the glacial Belgian legal system dragged its heels ever more slowly. The trial was a grotesque charade. Vital evidence, especially any that pointed to Nihoul, was lost or stifled before it came to court. The initial investigating magistrate, Jean-Marc Connerotte, was feted as a national hero when he personally rescued two more kidnapped victims from Dutroux’s cellars. Then, on the specious grounds of taking an informal meal with some of the victims’ families, he was dismissed from the case as ‘biased.’ When the trial finally began and Connerotte was summoned as a material witness, he railed against the bullet-proof cars required to protect him from the vengeance of the secret state.” (Gladio,Cottrell Page 320).

Regina Louf, Belgian abuse survivor, whistle-blower and murder witness. Denied justice even after being proven correct. Click to enlarge

Regina Louf, Belgian abuse survivor, whistle-blower and murder witness. Denied justice even after being proven correct. Click to enlarge

Of special relevance to the Hampstead matter is the story of Regina Louf, a young Belgian abuse victim who the authorities desperately tried to debunk after she made claims of being witness to horrendous acts during elite child abuse parties. Regina Louf was written off as a fantasist but was proven to be telling the truth after the body of a murder victim was found in identical circumstances to her description of the place and manner of death.

The account of the case from “Gladio-NATO’s Dagger at the Heart of Europe” (page 320) is also worth quoting:

“Regina Louf who came forward to testify she had seen her closest girlfriend murdered at one of Nihoul’s wretched parties, was traduced by official spinners and investigating magistrates as an insane liar.[59] The police interrogating team was sacked and replaced by another, which tossed out all her charges. Another side of the same force raided a decrepit mushroom farm specified by Louf and found the dead girl’s remains in exactly the circumstances she described, roped and tied so that she asphyxiated herself during excruciating torture for the amusement of onlookers. It is hard to credit a political system with the slightest perception of civilisation when it refuses to bring the perpetrators of such a horror to justice, particularly when they are known to the authorities”

The account of the investigation of the Regina Louf claims mirrors the Hampstead and Finders pattern almost identically, It is eerie. When the first group of police do their job and get the “wrong answers’ new police must be brought in to get the “right answers”. Whenever these type of allegations are unveiled, they are absolutely “red hot” and every attempt is always made to at least get a “limited hang’ if worst comes to worst and the cover up can no longer proceed.

Belgium’s X-Files – An Olenka Frenkiel Investigation

Example No.3 of the obvious Cover up of Elite Child Abuse

The Franklin Scandal, the USA in the 1980s. Covered up into the 1990s.

Witness testimonies and Blanket denials standard tactics. Evidence and witnesses are destroyed.

If we look to the very well documented Franklin Scandal, one of the truly striking things is the extent to which the Nebraska and Federal Law Enforcement authorities went to intimidate the victims. Several victims were actually imprisoned for making allegations that were complete and proven truth and corroborated by more than a dozen other victims and witnesses.

Alisha Owen was sentenced to 25 years prison for refusing to change her story regarding the Franklin Scandal. Served four and a half years prison for telling the truth about powerful people in Nebraska.

Alisha Owen was sentenced to 25 years prison for refusing to change her story regarding the Franklin Scandal. Served four and a half years prison for telling the truth about powerful people in Nebraska.

Shamelessness, along with evil is a key characteristic of these people. When caught red handed for totally heinous crimes, most people would fold, would be ashamed, these people are completely the opposite. No matter how obvious their crimes, they deny and deny and deny and use their agents inside Law enforcement to meld reality to their lies. Alisha Owen was sexually abused as a minor by several prominent citizens of Franklin, Nebraska. Alisha Owen served almost half a decade in prison having received a 25 year sentence for perjury for refusing to retract her allegations of having been trafficked by Lawrence E. King and abused by prominent members of the Franklin community, including the local Chief of Police.

Gary Caradori murdered investigator of protected pedophiles in Nebraska.

Gary Caradori murdered investigator of protected pedophiles in Nebraska.

Gary Caradori was a prominent investigator employed by the Nebraska Legislature to investigate the claims. He conducted a series of detailed, lengthy and formal interviews with a series of victims. Caradori was former Law Enforcement, a trained Investigator and interviewer with such a high degree of credibility that he was employed by the Nebraska legislature. He was a prominent successful and respected member of the community. The interviews were rock solid, he never coached a witness ever, he was an honest former cop doing an interview cop style. Gary Caradori did such a good job interviewing all the victims of the elite pedophile ring that dark elements in US Law Enforcement apparently chose to assassinate him, sabotaging his plane in Chicago was allegedly a task delegated to the Chicago FBI by their Nebraska brethren. Caradori’s young son also died in the “engineered” mid-air accident.

It was a very obvious assassination. Complete with the obligatory “disappearing briefcase” full of “knock out photographic evidence” according to Nick Bryant who is extremely meticulous. After they killed Gary Caradori the media went to work on his character, tried to paint the man as a “crank” who “badgered witnesses” towards a “predestined conclusion”. GQ magazine wrote a story after he was dead that described him as a “delusional investigator.” a claim of extraordinary mendacity even from the routinely evil commercial Western media.

The interviews Caradori conducted survived and it is absolutely clear that Caradori was the total opposite. He had never heard of this type of thing before and was astonished at what he discovered. Caradori’s interviews with Alisha Owen, Troy Boner and Paul Bonacci are embedded here. Even a brief look at any one of the interviews will make it absolutely clear that the man was completely down to earth and the nonsense spouted by (do they even still exist?) GQ was a deliberate attempt to discredit the overwhelming evidence Caradori accumulated.

Alisha Owen — Gary Caradori’s Interview

Troy Boner — Gary Caradori’s Interview

The destroy Caradori routine really did give new meaning to wickedness. But it worked, or at least delayed justice other than in history. The head pimp to the elite in Nebraska at that time was a fellow named Lawrence E King Jr. he procured children for the other local notables essentially and was also prolific in his personal abuse of young boys. He spent almost a decade in prison for embezzling money from the local Credit Union he ran. King was never prosecuted for his many well documented sex crimes against children.

Lawrence E King, the procurer and child pimp punished for financial crimes. His sexual crimes against children were well documented but it led to too many powerful people.

Lawrence E King, the procurer and child pimp punished for financial crimes. His sexual crimes against children were well documented but it led to too many powerful people.

King was kind of a big deal, supplying children to child abusers in several different areas in the United States. Singing the National Anthem at the yearly Republican party convention. Some of the children he pimped serviced clients in California, Colorado and Washington DC among other spots. King had connections in the prestigious Nebraska boys institution called “Boys-town” he recruited many boys from there and when complaints were made to the Boys-town counselor, he not only covered them up but also proceeded to abuse the victims himself.

Paul Bonacci, victim of Lawrence E King Jr won a million dollar judgement. Sent to Washington DC to work as a child prostitute. Witness to murder.

Paul Bonacci, victim of Lawrence E King Jr won a million dollar judgement. Sent to Washington DC to work as a child prostitute. Witness to murder.

Paul Bonacci won against Lawrence King in a Civil Court.

Paul Bonacci was one of the younger children that Larry King trafficked and abused, he was only eight years old when it started and was therefore a more highly sought after “product “ than the fourteen and fifteen years olds who were the majority of King’s stable of child prostitutes. This saw Bonacci for example as the only Franklin victim trafficked in Washington DC. Bonacci thus saw more of the network and a more extreme end than the other Franklin victims.

Only Bonacci of the major Franklin witnesses/victims actually managed to achieve a legal victory in a US court when in 1999 a Civil Court found that King had trafficked and abused him, he was a truthful witness and awarded Bonacci a million dollars in damages, none of which he actually received. Lawrence King was a  depraved abuser of young boys and girls himself in addition to his procurement role. (There are “beyond credible’ allegations from the 100% no doubt murdered witness and victim Troy Boner, that King violently raped a boy of around ten who was seen to be bleeding afterwards)

Paul Bonacci: THE MURDER -[1985]- GRAPHIC!–!WARNING![![p.4 -subtitled]

Investigator Gary Caradori’s Interview of Child Sex Slave Victim Paul Bonacci

Paul Bonacci has told the story of the time he was present at a child sex abuse party where a young boy was murdered. The video depicts a clearly honest and severely traumatised young man and is very upsetting. It’s almost like you have to harden your heart to even be able to look upon these crimes, to hear the stories. This is not uncommon. Because the major media are either in denial or complicit in the cover up of these operations and often sensationalise the claims when they air them, people have no idea it is actually true.

Conclusion.

Hampstead Allegations Sound All Too Familiar.

History Shows a Clear Pattern of Outright Lies.

The History of the Dutroux affair and of Franklin,Tallahassee, Washington DC, Westminster, Portugal; and many other places tells us that every possible attempt will be made to deny and cover up these crimes. A small industry of people exist in order to tell people that “these sort of things don’t happen, it was a false memory” etc. Yet when you look at the known facts in Belgium, in Franklin, in Westminster, it is perfectly clear that there has been a consistent pattern of cover up and massive attempts to discredit honest victims for decades.

If you read the Pedocracy by Dave McGowan, he painstakingly goes through these cases and looks at the evidence, in the Presidio case, in cases where the cover up supposedly succeeded. It is perfectly clear that there is no pattern of fabricated claims on this matter, entirely the opposite. The cover-up is the rule. At certain times people will be convicted of their crimes in relation to these incidents, such as Dutroux, but the existence of the network is never, ever admitted.

If we look at the dark history of the West, in Dolphin Square, in Washington DC, in Belgium with the studied disinterest in Law enforcement in Dutroux for years as he murdered and tortured minors. If the recent history of the West is examined, the Hampstead allegations do not sound outlandish at all, in fact these cases are sadly familiar to even a relative novice in this area such as myself.

The Gulf speaks the silent truth.

One of the ways to try and understand whether a cover up is taking place is to examine the investigation that has taken place and then compare that with what a sincere investigation would look like and the gap between the two, in this case a vast yawning gulf, speaks the truth.

If the children’s video interviews were troubling somewhat due to their being conducted by a party to a custody battle, all doubt was erased by the way the police interview of September 17th proceeded. The police officer conducting the interview appeared to find the allegations so unbelievable that he set out to debunk them as quickly as possible. That is the innocent explanation.

The problem with the interview is very profound and revealing. The police officer showed no intent whatsoever to discover the truth, quite the opposite. The interviewing officer behaved identically to a man sent out to ‘end it and make it all go away, get them to retract”. He actually coached them that they were coached, in an awesome display of hypocrisy and dishonesty.This was quite outrageous in my opinion. It ended all doubt for me. Here is a short excerpt from

Extracts of EXPERT Statements re Police Videos and Investigation.pdf

“When asked by Steve “we talked in two other interviews…was what you told me the truth?” Gabriel responds “yeah” Steve replies “so all that stuff about the babies, and the church and all that” Gabriel replies “no, well the babies, the babies…there is some of the babies killed yeah” are you sure “yeah, but not much, not every single day…”

This passage is completely transparent. The interviewing officer asks the child if the allegations previously made were correct. The child answers yes, so instead of further questioning to elicit corroborating details, the police officer straight out badgers the child, and being a child he half relents at the first attempt to badger him, stating, “well not every day.” sticking to his story but attempting to please the police officer. So when the badgering continues and the child folds it is completely predictable and has no bearing on the truth of the allegations. It is evidence of a cover-up, pure and simple.

A person seeking the truth would question in a completely different manner.You don’t even ask them about the allegations. They should be asked a series of very easy open questions at the start and not pushed to even talk about the allegations at all.

Once the abuse is mentioned, then you have to ask specific questions. about the details of the event.

This is how you get people to tell you what they know and then test how much of their story fits with the known and corroborated facts.

If these allegations were properly investigated there is a strong likelihood that further forensic evidence can be collected that would corroborate the children’s claims.

The obvious example of this relates to the allegations of murder. Where did these crimes take place? It has to be in London, if this happened it happened inside a room in London and it should be possible to identify the room. It should be possible to search the scene for microscopic blood remnants and other indications of violence at the scene. If the area has been subjected to an inexplicable industrial cleaning recently, the evidence may have been destroyed but there would still be a degree of corroboration there.

There are multiple investigative streams that have not been pursued and after all the known and proven cover ups of these matters in Britain and elsewhere, that is really unforgivable.

You don’t get a young child in the room and then immediately start suggesting the story they previously told was made up. It is simply not how it’s done, unless you are conducting a cover up.

My understanding is that there is abundant physical evidence that proves that the children have been abused by someone, so the whole line of questioning and approach appear to be fraudulent. I also considered that there would be no need or purpose to make such extreme allegations in order to win a custody battle. These allegations do not help win a custody battle, quite the opposite. More importantly,  you would not coach someone to tell a story like that to win a custody battle, serious criminal allegations such as murder only complicate things. The same goes for all the allegations about the school. There are too many details that can be checked that appear not to have been checked.

One of the things people may find the most unbelievable are the stories of the murders. I would not comment specifically other than to say they have a high degree of veracity in my opinion and this deserves a serious large scale police investigation right now. A Major Task Force, dozens of Detectives working thousands of hours if necessary. If these stories turn out to be somehow confused or incorrect, let the world know, show the world the exonerating evidence, not some “instant debunk” travesty as we appear to have seen in the Police interview of September 17th. 2014.

We know that horrendous crimes committed against children in the past, in the fairly recent past in the UK, have been covered up. This is the whole point of the Investigation that was set up by the British Home Secretary that has reached it’s third incarnation and gone nowhere in more than a year. It is worth remembering that the police unit investigating the historical Westminster claims are investigating at least three homicides related to protected child abusers during the 1980s. Not that the two very different cases should be conflated.

Therefore, given the gravity and apparent credibility of the allegations one troubling police interview is simply not going to suffice. The specific allegations need to be investigated in detail and prosecuted if they (as seems almost completely certain) turn out to be true.

The effort to expose the crimes in Hampstead has been an heroic one and the personal cost to several people involved in this case has already been immense.
The interviews Caradori conducted in a completely professional manner were alleged to have been entirely coached. This is a common place tactic in these cases, no matter how ridiculous.  It was a complete lie but they said it. This points to the problem with the Hampstead videos, they appear to convey and contain the truth but because of the relatively informal nature of the interviews, and more importantly the personal connection of the interviewer to the case, from a legal standpoint they are going to be very easily discounted.

These interviews, regardless of the truth of the allegations therein are not going to be particularly helpful in a criminal prosecution.This is not intended to criticise the interviewer but merely as a statement of fact. The perpetrators will deny to the last so the accounts need to be recorded by a neutral third party who cannot be accused of bias or coaching as soon as possible.

Ideally there should be fresh police interviews of the victims in order to get as detailed an account as possible to check against the known facts. If the police are unwilling to conduct fresh interviews, another neutral party should have the opportunity to ask the children what has happened in detail so that the allegations can be detailed in a neutral environment to an independent third party and corroborative background facts can be properly checked.

Someone needs to get these children on tape at length telling their stories and checking that against the known facts such as the medical reports and action must be taken. Someone has committed a crime here and the police are not going to be able to simply walk away from these allegations on the basis of the inexplicably unprofessional approach taken in the September 17th interview. The days of the simple one step “fob off” cover up are well and truly over.

Google translation of the French Michel Nihoul Wikipedia page.

:Michel Nihoul (Verviers, April 23, 1941) is a Belgian businessman and swindler from Brussels. In 2004 he has been tried as an alleged member of the gang of Marc Dutroux.
Biography
In the seventies and eighties is Nihoul in Brussels known as a frequent visitor to sex parties. He seems to know many senior figures in politics and business. He is also active as a radio producer, DJ and presenter at the free radio “Radio Activités”. In between, he was sentenced several times in fraud cases.
About his part in the activities of Dutroux is far from clear. Initially, he is seen as a gang leader. Later, his role minimized by both researchers and media. It also will not change as Regina Louf makes incriminating statements against him.
At the start of the Dutroux trial is whether Nihoul only a swindler and drug trafficker who “accidentally” did with Dutroux affairs, or that he was the central figure in a pedophile network. He is on trial for conspiracy, kidnapping and drug trafficking. He always boasted that “his arm was as long as the Danube”, referring to its relations to the highest circles of the country.
Nihoul denies any involvement in the kidnappings. He would indeed have sold drugs to Dutroux and Michel Lelievre, but would have done on behalf of the state police to infiltrate the gang – something he denied earlier though.
Nihoul was eventually acquitted of involvement in the kidnapping and only convicted of drug offenses and conspiracy. It earned him five years of imprisonment. In the spring of 2006, he was released early. He settled in Zeebrugge, where he still resides. Three years after the process creates a stir when he is playing in the reconstruction of scenes from the Dutroux case in the TV program Dossier noir of February 18, 2007 at the French-speaking channel RTBF. [1]
Nihoul was on May 20, 2010 from prosecution stated in the by-file of the Dutroux case, after which he immediately 250,000 compensation demanded by Marc Verwilghen, the chairman of the parliamentary inquiry Dutroux. [2] [3] The final judgment on this claim was in December 2011, with the requirement of Nihoul was rejected. [4]
Annie Bouty
Nihoul’s ex-partner and second wife, Annie Bouty, also long been suspected of involvement in criminal activities. Nihoul and Bouty met each other in 1975. She had a private law firm and was co-founder of Cadreco, a firm legal assistance granted to an arms dealer who supplied the Iranian ayatollahs for $ 83 million missiles. [Source?] She also gave false passports to illegal Nigerian prostitutes in Belgium. [Source ?] Bouty was also suspected of involvement in the Dutroux case, but was eventually acquitted.”

Unlike most British Jews, The Vast Majority Of UK Muslims Are Loyal To The Kingdom

Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Feb 26, 2015

Poll of British Muslims

A month ago we learned that “a quarter of Jews in Britain have considered leaving the country in the last two years and well over half feel they have no long term future in Europe”*
Interestingly enough, yesterday the BBC published a poll that measured British Muslims’ attitude towards Britain. Unlike the majority of Jews who expressed their will to leave Europe, 95% of the Muslims here are “loyal to Britain.”
In spite of Britain’s waging countless wars against Muslim countries for decades, despite Britain’s blind support for Israel and despite the ongoing discrimination against Muslims in Britain, nineteen out of twenty Muslims remain loyal to this Kingdom. Contrast this with at least half the of Jews who, although they enjoy prominence in this country and whose Israeli Lobby has enjoyed remarkable success, appear willing to leave this country behind.
This raises the following questions, that a sociologist or perhaps the British Jews themselves must address.
What is it about British Jews, that has caused so many of them to fail to settle after so many decades? Why are they happy to wander again? Is the notion of dwelling foreign to Jewish culture? Is true assimilation impossible as far as Diaspora Jewish culture is concerned? Is it possible that it is actually the prominence of Jews in British society (media, politics, culture, finance) that makes Jews feel insecure?
Early Zionists attempted to address these questions. Settlement in Zion, i.e. Palestine, was supposed to free the Jews from their ‘Diaspora symptoms.’ The ‘homecoming’ adventure was supposed to introduce Jews to the notion of dwelling and belonging. It was intended to attach the Jew to the soil. However, the birth of the Jewish State brought to light new and far more devastating traits some of which have actually put our planet at grave risk.
I guess that for the time being, there is NO answer to the Jewish question, yet, the question itself is more vital than ever.

Saudis Said to Aid Israeli Plan to Bomb Iran

Robert Parry — Consortium News Feb 25, 2015

According to an Israeli media report, Saudi Arabia has agreed to let Israeli warplanes fly over Saudi territory to save fuel while attacking Iranian nuclear sites, the latest indication of how the two former enemies have developed a behind-the-scenes alliance that is reshaping geopolitics in the Middle East.

“The Saudi authorities are completely coordinated with Israel on all matters related to Iran,” a European official in Brussels told Israel’s Channel 2 in a report broadcast on Tuesday and described in other Israeli media outlets.

Riyadh’s only condition was that Israel make some progress in peace talks with the Palestinians, a stipulation that may be mostly cosmetic so the Saudis can save face with other Arab states without really interfering with an Israeli flyover to strike Iran.

Disclosure of this Israeli-Saudi military cooperation comes as the United States and five other world powers rush to finish an agreement with Iran to curtail but not eliminate its nuclear program, which Iran says is only for civilian purposes. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to appear before the U.S. Congress on March 3 to undercut President Barack Obama’s negotiations.

The reported Saudi permission for Israeli warplanes to take a shorter route to bomb Iran also suggests that Netanyahu may be laying the groundwork for his own plans to attack the Iranian nuclear sites if the international negotiations are successful. Netanyahu has denounced a possible deal as an “existential threat” to Israel.

In recent years, Israel and Saudi Arabia have quietly begun cooperating on a range of mutual interests with the goal of blunting Iran’s regional influence. For instance, they have sided with rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, an Iranian ally, even if the victors might be Islamist radicals affiliated with al-Qaeda or the Islamic State.

Elements of the Saudi royal family have long been known to support Islamist militants, including forces associated with al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that convicted al-Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui identified leading members of the Saudi government as financiers of the terrorist network.

According to the story, Moussaoui said in a prison deposition that he was directed in 1998 or 1999 by Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan to create a digital database of the group’s donors and that the list included Prince Turki al-Faisal, then Saudi intelligence chief; Prince Bandar bin Sultan, longtime Saudi ambassador to the United States; Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, a prominent billionaire investor; and many leading clerics.

“Sheikh Osama wanted to keep a record who give money,” Moussaoui said in imperfect English — “who is to be listened to or who contributed to the jihad.” Moussaoui also said he discussed a plan to shoot down President George W. Bush’s Air Force One with a Stinger missile with a staff member at the Saudi Embassy in Washington, at a time when Bandar was the ambassador to the United States and considered so close to the Bush family that his nickname was “Bandar Bush.”

Moussaoui claimed, too, that he passed letters between Osama bin Laden and then Crown Prince Salman, who recently became king upon the death of his brother King Abdullah.

While the Saudi government denied Moussaoui’s accusations, Saudi and other Persian Gulf oil sheikdoms have been identified in recent years as financial backers of Sunni militants fighting in Syria to overthrow Assad’s largely secular regime, with al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front the major rebel force benefiting from this support.

Shared Israeli Interests

The Israelis also have found themselves on the side of these Sunni militants in Syria because the Israelis share the Saudi view that Iran and the so-called “Shiite crescent” – reaching from Tehran to Beirut – is the greatest threat to their interests.

In September 2013, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren, then a close Netanyahu adviser, told the Jerusalem Post that Israel favored the Sunni extremists over Assad. “The greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc,” Oren told the Jerusalem Post in an interview.

“We always wanted Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.” He said this was the case even if the “bad guys” were affiliated with al-Qaeda.

In June 2014, speaking as a former ambassador at an Aspen Institute conference, Oren expanded on his position, saying Israel would even prefer a victory by the brutal Islamic State over continuation of the Iranian-backed Assad in Syria. “From Israel’s perspective, if there’s got to be an evil that’s got to prevail, let the Sunni evil prevail,” Oren said.

That hostility toward Assad’s regime has taken a tactical form with Israeli forces launching attacks inside Syria that benefit Nusra Front. For instance, on Jan. 18, 2015, Israel attacked Lebanese-Iranian advisers assisting Assad’s government in Syria, killing several members of Hezbollah and an Iranian general. These military advisers were engaged in operations against Nusra Front.

Meanwhile, Israel has refrained from attacking Nusra militants who have seized Syrian territory near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. One source familiar with U.S. intelligence information on Syria told me that Israel has a “non-aggression pact” with Nusra forces, who have even received medical treatment at Israeli hospitals.

Israel and Saudi Arabia have found themselves on the same side in other regional struggles, including support for the military’s ouster of the elected Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt, but most importantly they have joined forces in their hostility toward Shiite-ruled Iran.

I first reported on the growing relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia in August 2013 in an article entitled “The Saudi-Israeli Superpower,” noting that the complementary strengths of the two countries made their alliance a potentially powerful influence in the world. Israel could wield political and media clout while the Saudis could use their oil, money and investments.

At the time, the story was met with much skepticism, but, increasingly, the secret alliance has gone public. On Oct. 1, 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu hinted at it in his United Nations General Assembly speech, which was largely devoted to excoriating Iran over its nuclear program and threatening a unilateral Israeli military strike.

Amid the bellicosity, Netanyahu dropped in a largely missed clue about the evolving power relationships in the Middle East, saying: “The dangers of a nuclear-armed Iran and the emergence of other threats in our region have led many of our Arab neighbors to recognize, finally recognize, that Israel is not their enemy. And this affords us the opportunity to overcome the historic animosities and build new relationships, new friendships, new hopes.”

The next day, Israel’s Channel 2 TV news reported that senior Israeli security officials had met with a high-level Gulf state counterpart in Jerusalem, believed to be Prince Bandar, the former Saudi ambassador to the United States who was then head of Saudi intelligence.

Even the MSM

The reality of this unlikely alliance has now even reached the mainstream U.S. media. For instance, Time magazine correspondent Joe Klein described the new coziness in an article in the Jan. 19, 2015 issue.

He wrote: “On May 26, 2014, an unprecedented public conversation took place in Brussels. Two former high-ranking spymasters of Israel and Saudi Arabia – Amos Yadlin and Prince Turki al-Faisal – sat together for more than an hour, talking regional politics in a conversation moderated by the Washington Post’s David Ignatius.

“They disagreed on some things, like the exact nature of an Israel-Palestine peace settlement, and agreed on others: the severity of the Iranian nuclear threat, the need to support the new military government in Egypt, the demand for concerted international action in Syria. The most striking statement came from Prince Turki. He said the Arabs had ‘crossed the Rubicon’ and ‘don’t want to fight Israel anymore.’”

Israel and Saudi Arabia also have collaborated in efforts to put the squeeze on Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, who is deemed a key supporter of both Iran and Syria. The Saudis have used their power over oil production to drive down prices and hurt Russia’s economy, while U.S. neoconservatives – who share Israel’s geopolitical world view – were at the forefront of the coup that ousted Ukraine’s pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych a year ago.

Saudi hostility toward Russia also surfaced in 2013 when Bandar met Putin and delivered what Putin viewed as a crude threat to unleash Chechen terrorists against the Sochi Winter Olympics if Putin did not reduce his support for the Syrian government.

According to a leaked diplomtic account of a July 31, 2013 meeting in Moscow, Bandar informed Putin that Saudi Arabia had strong influence over Chechen extremists who had carried out numerous terrorist attacks against Russian targets and who had since deployed to join the fight against the Assad regime in Syria.

As Bandar called for a Russian shift toward the Saudi position on Syria, he reportedly offered guarantees of protection from Chechen terror attacks on the Olympics. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year,” Bandar reportedly said. “The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”

Putin responded, “We know that you have supported the Chechen terrorist groups for a decade. And that support, which you have frankly talked about just now, is completely incompatible with the common objectives of fighting global terrorism.”

Bandar’s Mafia-like threat toward the Sochi games – a version of “nice Olympics you got here, it’d be a shame if something terrible happened to it” – failed to intimidate Putin, who continued to support Assad. But Putin became obsessed with security at Sochi, distracting him from the worsening crisis in Ukraine where Yanukovych was ousted in a neocon-orchestrated coup on Feb. 22, 2014, a day before the Olympic torch was extinguished.

Now, with Obama nearing a possible agreement to rein in but not end Iran’s nuclear program – against the wishes of the Israeli-Saudi tag team – the leak in the Israeli media suggests that Netanyahu with the support of Saudi Arabia’s royal family may be contemplating his own bombing campaign against Iran.

First full body transplant is two years away, surgeon claims

Ian Sample — The Guardian Feb 25, 2015

Doctor says an operation to attach a living person’s head to a donor body is not far off. Click to enlarge

Doctor says an operation to attach a living person’s head to a donor body is not far off. Click to enlarge

A surgeon says full-body transplants could become a reality in just two years.

Sergio Canavero, a doctor in Turin, Italy, has drawn up plans to graft a living person’s head on to a donor body and claims the procedures needed to carry out the operation are not far off.

Canavero hopes to assemble a team to explore the radical surgery in a project he is due to launch at a meeting for neurological surgeons in Maryland this June.

He has claimed for years that medical science has advanced to the point that a full body transplant is plausible, but the proposal has caused raised eyebrows, horror and profound disbelief in other surgeons.

The Italian doctor, who recently published a broad outline of how the surgery could be performed, told New Scientist magazine that he wanted to use body transplants to prolong the lives of people affected by terminal diseases.

“If society doesn’t want it, I won’t do it. But if people don’t want it, in the US or Europe, that doesn’t mean it won’t be done somewhere else,” he said. “I’m trying to go about this the right way, but before going to the moon, you want to make sure people will follow you.”

Putting aside the considerable technical issues involved in removing a living person’s head, grafting it to a dead body, reviving the reconstructed person and retraining their brain to use thousands of unfamiliar spinal cord nerves, the ethics are problematic.

The history of transplantation is full of cases where people hated their new appendages and had them removed. The psychological burden of emerging from anaesthetic with an entirely new body is firmly in uncharted territory. Another hitch is that medical ethics boards would almost certainly not approve experiments in primates to test whether the procedure works.

But Canavero wants to provoke a debate around these issues. “The real stumbling block is the ethics,” he told New Scientist. “Should this surgery be done at all? There are obviously going to be many people who disagree with it.”

The idea of body transplants – or head transplants, depending on the perspective – has been tried before. In 1970, Robert White led a team at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, US, that tried to transplant the head of one monkey on to the body of another. The surgeons stopped short of a full spinal cord transfer, so the monkey could not move its body.

A lull in attempted body transplants followed White’s experiments, but last year researchers at Harbin Medical University in China made some headway with mice. They hope to perfect a procedure they claim “will become a milestone of medical history and potentially could save millions of people”.

Despite Canavero’s enthusiasm, many surgeons and neuroscientists believe massive technical hurdles push full body transplants into the distant future. The starkest problem is that no one knows how to reconnect spinal nerves and make them work again. Were that possible, people paralysed by spinal injuries could have surgery to make them walk again.

“There is no evidence that the connectivity of cord and brain would lead to useful sentient or motor function following head transplantation,” Richard Borgens, director of the Center for Paralysis Research at Purdue University in Indiana, US, told New Scientist.

According to the procedure Canavero outlined this month, doctors would first cool the patient’s head and the donor’s body so their cells do not die during the operation. The neck is then cut through, the blood vessels linked up with thin tubes, and the spinal cord cut with an exceptionally sharp knife to minimise nerve damage. The recipient’s head is then moved on to the donor’s body.

The next stage is trickier. Canavero believes that the spinal cord nerves that would allow the recipient’s brain to talk to the donor’s body can be fused together using a substance called polyethylene glycol. To stop the patient moving, they must be kept in a coma for weeks. When they come round, Canavero believes they would be able to speak and feel their face, though he predicts they would need a year of physiotherapy before they could move the body.

“This is such an overwhelming project, the possibility of it happening is very unlikely,” Harry Goldsmith, professor of neurological surgery at the University of California, Davis, told the magazine.

Leaked Mossad Document Challenges Bibi’s Credibility on Iran

Jonathan Broder — Newsweek Feb 25, 2015

Netanyahu appearing before the UN General Assembly in 2012 to warn of the threat posed by Iran. Since then we've seen no hard evidence of Iran's nuclear weapons drive, although we've heard plenty more allegations. Click to enlarge

Netanyahu appearing before the UN General Assembly in 2012 to warn of the threat posed by Iran. Since then we’ve seen no hard evidence of Iran’s nuclear weapons drive, although at the time Netanyahu claimed that Iran was only a”year away” from producing a nuclear weapon . Click to enlarge

The drawing was as controversial as it was cartoonish. In September 2012, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations, arguing that Iran was less than a year away from making a nuclear weapon. To bolster his claim, Netanyahu used a cartoon drawing of an old-fashioned anarchist’s bomb with a lit fuse poking out the top.

“By next spring—at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates—they will have finished the medium enrichment and moved on to the final stage,” Netanyahu said. “From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks, before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.”

Apparently, however, Netanyahu’s own intelligence service came to a much different conclusion. According to Al-Jazeera and The Guardian, a top secret Mossad document written around the same time concluded that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons”—an assessment Netanyahu left out of his speech. Now, as the Israeli leader prepares to deliver another warning about Iran’s nuclear program next week, this time to a joint meeting of Congress—the U.N. address is coming back to haunt him. Like Brian Williams and Bill O’Reilly, the Israeli premier is fighting claims of embellishment—that he exaggerated Iran’s progress toward making the bomb.

The Mossad document, which Al-Jazeera said the agency shared with South Africa’s intelligence service a few weeks after Netanyahu’s speech, was part of a large cache of top secret files given to the Qatar-based television network. Al-Jazeera shared the Mossad document with The Guardian, which said it verified their authenticity, and both published the document on Monday.

The apparent contradiction between Netanyahu’s dire warning about Iran and what Mossad said behind the scenes comes at a sensitive moment for the Israeli leader. Netanyahu is poised to deliver his speech to Congress next Tuesday and will tell U.S. lawmakers about the dangers of the nuclear deal that Obama is negotiating with Iran. The planned speech has poisoned relations between Netanyahu and the White House because it was cooked up behind Obama’s back with Republican leaders and will take aim at a diplomatic effort that the president hopes will be part of his legacy.

On Tuesday, Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, called Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress—and the partisan manner in which it came about—“destructive” to U.S.-Israel relations. And the Israeli prime minister only exacerbated the partisan tension surrounding his speech by turning down an invitation to meet with Senate Democrats.

Israeli officials shrug off suggestions that the leaked document has damaged Netanyahu’s credibility. They won’t confirm the authenticity of the Mossad report, yet they insist the document doesn’t contradict Netanyahu’s warning since both said the Iranians were enriching uranium to produce nuclear weapons. That response, however, sidesteps the spy agency’s conclusion that Iran wasn’t actively developing a bomb and the fact that that the prime minister never mentioned that critical detail in his 2012 speech.

Netanyahu hopes his upcoming address will prompt a sufficient number of lawmakers to impose stronger sanctions against Iran and thereby override Obama’s ability to veto any such legislation. It remains unclear whether Obama could defeat an override vote, but with less than a week until Netanyahu’s speech, the president has warned that further sanctions would torpedo the nuclear talks with Iran and could even lead to another Middle East war.

This isn’t the first time that Netanyahu’s credibility on Iran has been challenged. Before his U.N. speech 2012, some Israeli intelligence officials criticized the prime minister’s claims about Iran. Among them was former Mossad director Meir Dagan, who called Netanyahu’s threats to launch a preemptive Israeli attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities a “stupid idea.”

“An attack on Iran before you are exploring all other approaches is not the right way how to do it,” he told CBS’s 60 Minutes, in an unusually frank interview for one of Israel’s normally tight-lipped former intelligence chiefs. “We are going to ignite, at least from my point of view, a regional war. And wars, you know how they start. You never know how you are ending it.” Dagan, who is suffering from cancer, didn’t respond to Newsweek’s request for comment on the leaked Mossad report.

In April, Yuval Diskin, former head of Israel’s Shin Bet internal security service, also spoke up, calling both Netanyahu and then defense minister Ehud Barak “messianics” whose repeated threats to bomb Iran amid U.S.-led diplomatic efforts rendered them no longer fit to lead the country.

The leaked document, which was dated October 22, 2012, acknowledged that Iran was “working to close gaps in areas that appear legitimate, such as enrichment reactors, which will reduce the time required to produce weapons from the time the instruction is actually given.” But the document also said that Tehran “does not appear to be ready” to enrich uranium to weapons-grade levels.

The Mossad’s view of Iran’s nuclear program tracks closely with the U.S.’s assessment in 2007. The report said Iran had around 100 kilograms of 20 percent enriched uranium, a stockpile that was later diluted or destroyed under a 2013 interim nuclear accord between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council—the U.S., Russia, China, France and Britain, plus Germany.

Under the 2013 accord, Iran has frozen or rolled back some elements of its nuclear program in exchange for modest sanctions relief. In Geneva this week, both Iranian and U.S. negotiators reported progress toward a framework agreement by the end of March. Negotiators hope to secure a final accord by the end of June.

The broad outlines of what this accord may look like have trickled out in recent weeks. The U.S. and Iran are reportedly considering a deal that would prevent Tehran from stockpiling enough enriched uranium for a bomb for at least 10 years. Under such a deal, Iran could be allowed to gradually increase its enrichment activities once the deal expires. But Netanyahu considers unacceptable any accord that leaves Iran with any capacity to enrich uranium whatsoever, a position the U.S. has described as both unrealistic and unattainable.

Whether Netanyahu’s credibility has truly suffered in Washington from the leaked documents report may become clear in the event of congressional votes on new sanctions, or other legislation on a possible nuclear agreement with Iran.   

Any damage the Israeli leader may have suffered back home won’t become clear until Israeli voters go to the polls March 17. But current polls indicate that his maneuvering in Washington is working in his favor among right-wing voters, many of whom don’t trust Obama and admire Netanyahu’s readiness to stand up to him. Which is perhaps why the Israeli prime minister will continue to fire torpedoes at the Iran negotiations as the Israeli elections loom closer. In a tightly contested race, it may be the only way Netanyahu can win.

Toothless Lions: Socialists Betray Greece

henrymakow.com — Feb 25, 2015

Greece Syriza supporters celebrate. Click to enlarge

Alexis Tspiras and Syriza supporters. Click to enlarge

Syriza came to power on the pledge that it would renounce the country’s $327bn debt, kick out the troika bailiffs and put an end to austerity that has plagued the country for the last five years. Instead they caved, another reminder that socialists are part of the Illuminati.
Greece’s salvation depends on leaving the Euro, something the craven new government is afraid to do. They even caved on EU sanctions against Russia.
Here, Jane Burgermeister, who questioned the Smolensk “crash” in 2010, takes the new Greek government to task.

by Jane Burgermeister — (Abridged by henrymakow.com)

The betrayal by the newly-minted Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tspiras and his side kick, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, has been complete.
One month after being elected to stop the Troika and banker-imposed austerity, controlled-opposition Tspiras and Varoufakis agreed to continue the very same policies of debt enslavement with only minor adjustments in a deal in Brussels.
The theatrical negotiations on Friday were all in a days work for this pair of actors and media darlings. Only now the Greek people do not have the inclination to watch crafted displays of pain and suffering on the Brussels stage. They need relief from the crushing debt burden, and they need it immediately.
It is a defining moment in Greek history. This moment of betrayal in Brussels needs to be defined by one word. OXI. NO! No to debt slavery! Oxi!
After pretending to battle in negotiations, the duo of Tspiras and Varoufakis thought up the ruse of renaming the “Troika” as “Institutions” before they signed the new extension on the bailout with a flourish of their gold-capped pens on Friday. It is difficult to see how the Rock Stars — as they are called by the mainstream media — could have thought the Greek people would not notice the two words denoted exactly the same thing. A phone call to friends in the media to publish high fake poll ratings may have seemed an easy option to cushion the cataclysmic fall in public support.
But things have turned out differently. Public anger has boiled over at the “treason”. It is difficult to see how it can be controlled when the very existence of the Greek people is at stake.
Contrary to the media hype, there is no support for Tspiras and Varoufakis. They have no Rock Star appeal or charisma. They are not popular.

The following post is taken from the Ultra Zionist CIF Watch. The hawkish Israeli outlet is bragging today about its success in persuading The Guardian to  remove The Wandering Who from its online book shop.  Needless to say that The Wandering Who was published three years ago, it has been a best seller since then. It was translated into 12 languages and not a single claim referring to  any form of hatred has been issued in the UK or anywhere else. The Wandering Who has been endorsed by the most impressive list of scholars and humanists.  Seemingly, it doesn’t take much for The Guardian to shamelessly surrender to pressure made by supporters of   ethnic cleansing Israel.

Following our post, Guardian removes antisemitic book from online shop

By Adam Levick
Yesterday, we posted about the sudden reappearance of a book by Gilad Atzmon at the Guardian’s online bookshop which they had removed back in 2011 (due to its extreme antisemitic content) following communication with this blog.

Guardian bookshop

After emailing Guardian editors yesterday to ask about the reappearance of Atzmon’s book, we were informed that their online shop uses automated feeds, and that the removal of specific titles has to be done manually.
So, they again removed Atzmon’s book from their virtual shelves.
Here’s what you see when you open the link to the book.
Ooops sorryWe commend Guardian editors for the prompt removal.

Iran’s IRGC wraps up first day of major maneuvers in Persian Gulf

Press TV — Feb 25, 2015

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has wrapped up the first day of major massive war games it started earlier in the day in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, code-named the Great Prophet 9.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the drills, the IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Ja’fari said the naval forces of the IRGC are in full control of the Sea of Oman, the strategic Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf.

He added that the drills are aimed at the establishment of security in the Persian Gulf region, and all preplanned objectives of the exercise have been so far met.

The IRGC commander added that the Great Prophet 9 exercise focused particularly on enemy targets at sea in their first day in order to exhibit Iran’s capabilities in maintaining security in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.

“The maneuvers are of deterrent nature so as to discourage use of force or any effort to create insecurity by our enemies,” he noted.

The Iranian commander also emphasized that the military exercise is meant to convey Iran’s message of security and peace to the countries in the region.

The Great Prophet 9 military exercise started on Wednesday morning with maritime mine operations by speedboats as well as the firing of four coast-to-sea missiles in the Persian Gulf region and the Strait of Hormuz.

Various types of ballistic and sea-launched cruise missiles were fired, and nearly 400 rounds of 107-milimeter rockets struck a huge model a US aircraft carrier. The first phase of the drill concluded later on Wednesday with a parade of marine units and speedboats.

Jafari noted that the IRGC Ground Force will undertake the next phase of the exercise, which will begin at 9:00 local time (0530 GMT) on Thursday morning and incorporate intricate tactics.

A total of 20 new missiles, including underwater ones with a speed of 100 meters per second, were tested during the military exercise.

The drill also featured other military equipment, including speedboats equipped with naval radars, electronic communications systems, cruise missiles with a range of 25 kilometers, anti-ship medium-range missiles, medium- and large-caliber torpedoes, sea mines, heavy machine guns, rocket-launchers and shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.

Meanwhile, IRGC’s second-in-command, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, said coast-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles as well as naval mines of the IRGC are not restricted to operational radius; and the use of technologies like Limited Laser Range of Intercept has no negative impact on the might of the IRGC Navy.

The top Iranian commander stated that the IRGC has identified all strong points, and technological and tactical capabilities of the enemy, and has upgraded its prowess to befit them.

The IRGC’s second-in-command further noted that the force has unannounced weapons at its disposal that will be put on show only in case of a military aggression.

‘State-of-the-art naval mines’

In addition to the two senior IRGC commanders, Admiral Ali Fadavi, who serves as head of the IRGC Navy, also said the force has state-of-the-art naval mines in its inventory that the US military cannot imagine, noting that the mines can be planted at various depths.

Saying that the IRGC naval forces have numerous extraordinary vessels that are different compared to the ones already showcased, Fadavi added that the vessels come in different sizes and their features will not be made known as long as the enemy has not committed a made does not commit a folly.

Iran has conducted several war games to enhance the defense capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military tactics and equipment.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly said that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.

The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden ‘black site’

Spencer Ackerman — The Guardian Feb 24, 2015

Homan Square, Chicago. Click to enlarge

Homan Square, Chicago. Click to enlarge

The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.

The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.

Alleged police practices at Homan Square, according to those familiar with the facility who spoke out to the Guardian after its investigation into Chicago police abuse, include:

  • Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases.
  • Beating by police, resulting in head wounds.
  • Shackling for prolonged periods.
  • Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility.
  • Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15.

At least one man was found unresponsive in a Homan Square “interview room” and later pronounced dead.

Brian Jacob Church, a protester known as one of the “Nato Three”, was held and questioned at Homan Square in 2012 following a police raid. Officers restrained Church for the better part of a day, denying him access to an attorney, before sending him to a nearby police station to be booked and charged.

“Homan Square is definitely an unusual place,” Church told the Guardian on Friday. “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.”

The secretive warehouse is the latest example of Chicago police practices that echo the much-criticized detention abuses of the US war on terrorism. While those abuses impacted people overseas, Homan Square – said to house military-style vehicles, interrogation cells and even a cage – trains its focus on Americans, most often poor, black and brown.

Unlike a precinct, no one taken to Homan Square is said to be booked. Witnesses, suspects or other Chicagoans who end up inside do not appear to have a public, searchable record entered into a database indicating where they are, as happens when someone is booked at a precinct. Lawyers and relatives insist there is no way of finding their whereabouts. Those lawyers who have attempted to gain access to Homan Square are most often turned away, even as their clients remain in custody inside.

“It’s sort of an open secret among attorneys that regularly make police station visits, this place – if you can’t find a client in the system, odds are they’re there,” said Chicago lawyer Julia Bartmes.

Chicago civil-rights attorney Flint Taylor said Homan Square represented a routinization of a notorious practice in local police work that violates the fifth and sixth amendments of the constitution.

“This Homan Square revelation seems to me to be an institutionalization of the practice that dates back more than 40 years,” Taylor said, “of violating a suspect or witness’ rights to a lawyer and not to be physically or otherwise coerced into giving a statement.”

Much remains hidden about Homan Square. The Chicago police department did not respond to the Guardian’s questions about the facility. But after the Guardian published this story, the department provided a statement insisting, without specifics, that there is nothing untoward taking place at what it called the “sensitive” location, home to undercover units.

“CPD [Chicago police department] abides by all laws, rules and guidelines pertaining to any interviews of suspects or witnesses, at Homan Square or any other CPD facility. If lawyers have a client detained at Homan Square, just like any other facility, they are allowed to speak to and visit them. It also houses CPD’s Evidence Recovered Property Section, where the public is able to claim inventoried property,” the statement said, something numerous attorneys and one Homan Square arrestee have denied.

“There are always records of anyone who is arrested by CPD, and this is not any different at Homan Square,” it continued.

The Chicago police statement did not address how long into an arrest or detention those records are generated or their availability to the public. A department spokesperson did not respond to a detailed request for clarification.

When a Guardian reporter arrived at the warehouse on Friday, a man at the gatehouse outside refused any entrance and would not answer questions. “This is a secure facility. You’re not even supposed to be standing here,” said the man, who refused to give his name.

A former Chicago police superintendent and a more recently retired detective, both of whom have been inside Homan Square in the last few years in a post-police capacity, said the police department did not operate out of the warehouse until the late 1990s.

But in detailing episodes involving their clients over the past several years, lawyers described mad scrambles that led to the closed doors of Homan Square, a place most had never heard of previously. The facility was even unknown to Rob Warden, the founder of Northwestern University Law School’s Center on Wrongful Convictions, until the Guardian informed him of the allegations of clients who vanish into inherently coercive police custody.

“They just disappear,” said Anthony Hill, a criminal defense attorney, “until they show up at a district for charging or are just released back out on the street.”

Jacob Church learned about Homan Square the hard way. On May 16 2012, he and 11 others were taken there after police infiltrated their protest against the Nato summit. Church says officers cuffed him to a bench for an estimated 17 hours, intermittently interrogating him without reading his Miranda rights to remain silent. It would take another three hours – and an unusual lawyer visit through a wire cage – before he was finally charged with terrorism-related offenses at the nearby 11th district station, where he was made to sign papers, fingerprinted and photographed.

In preparation for the Nato protest, Church, who is from Florida, had written a phone number for the National Lawyers Guild on his arm as a precautionary measure. Once taken to Homan Square, Church asked explicitly to call his lawyers, and said he was denied.

“Essentially, I wasn’t allowed to make any contact with anybody,” Church told the Guardian, in contradiction of a police guidance on permitting phone calls and legal counsel to arrestees.

Church’s left wrist was cuffed to a bar behind a bench in windowless cinderblock cell, with his ankles cuffed together. He remained in those restraints for about 17 hours.

“I had essentially figured, ‘All right, well, they disappeared us and so we’re probably never going to see the light of day again,’” Church said.

Though the raid attracted major media attention, a team of attorneys could not find Church through 12 hours of “active searching”, Sarah Gelsomino, Church’s lawyer, recalled. No booking record existed. Only after she and others made a “major stink” with contacts in the offices of the corporation counsel and Mayor Rahm Emanuel did they even learn about Homan Square.

They sent another attorney to the facility, where he ultimately gained entry, and talked to Church through a floor-to-ceiling chain-link metal cage. Finally, hours later, police took Church and his two co-defendants to a nearby police station for booking.

After serving two and a half years in prison, Church is currently on parole after he and his co-defendants were found not guilty in 2014 of terrorism-related offenses but guilty of lesser charges of possessing an incendiary device and the misdemeanor of “mob action”.

The access that Nato Three attorneys received to Homan Square was an exception to the rule, even if Jacob Church’s experience there was not.

Three attorneys interviewed by the Guardian report being personally turned away from Homan Square between 2009 and 2013 without being allowed access to their clients. Two more lawyers who hadn’t been physically denied described it as a place where police withheld information about their clients’ whereabouts. Church was the only person who had been detained at the facility who agreed to talk with the Guardian: their lawyers say others fear police retaliation.

One man in January 2013 had his name changed in the Chicago central bookings database and then taken to Homan Square without a record of his transfer being kept, according to Eliza Solowiej of Chicago’s First Defense Legal Aid. (The man, the Guardian understands, wishes to be anonymous; his current attorney declined to confirm Solowiej’s account.) She found out where he was after he was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

“He said that the officers caused his head injuries in an interrogation room at Homan Square. I had been looking for him for six to eight hours, and every department member I talked to said they had never heard of him,” Solowiej said. “He sent me a phone pic of his head injuries because I had seen him in a police station right before he was transferred to Homan Square without any.”

Bartmes, another Chicago attorney, said that in September 2013 she got a call from a mother worried that her 15-year-old son had been picked up by police before dawn. A sympathetic sergeant followed up with the mother to say her son was being questioned at Homan Square in connection to a shooting and would be released soon. When hours passed, Bartmes traveled to Homan Square, only to be refused entry for nearly an hour.

An officer told her, “Well, you can’t just stand here taking notes, this is a secure facility, there are undercover officers, and you’re making people very nervous,” Bartmes recalled. Told to leave, she said she would return in an hour if the boy was not released. He was home, and not charged, after “12, maybe 13” hours in custody.

On February 2, 2013, John Hubbard was taken to Homan Square. Hubbard never walked out. The Chicago Tribune reported that the 44-year old was found “unresponsive inside an interview room, and pronounced dead. After publication, the Cook County medical examiner told the Guardian that the cause of death was determined to be heroin intoxication.

Homan Square is hardly concerned exclusively with terrorism. Several special units operate outside of it, including the anti-gang and anti-drug forces. If police “want money, guns, drugs”, or information on the flow of any of them onto Chicago’s streets, “they bring them there and use it as a place of interrogation off the books,” Hill said.

A former Chicago detective and current private investigator, Bill Dorsch, said he had not heard of the police abuses described by Church and lawyers for other suspects who had been taken to Homan Square. He has been permitted access to the facility to visit one of its main features, an evidence locker for the police department. (“I just showed my retirement star and passed through,” Dorsch said.)

Transferring detainees through police custody to deny them access to legal counsel, would be “a career-ender,” Dorsch said. “To move just for the purpose of hiding them, I can’t see that happening,” he told the Guardian.

Richard Brzeczek, Chicago’s police superintendent from 1980 to 1983, who also said he had no first-hand knowledge of abuses at Homan Square, said it was “never justified” to deny access to attorneys.

“Homan Square should be on the same list as every other facility where you can call central booking and say: ‘Can you tell me if this person is in custody and where,’” Brzeczek said.

“If you’re going to be doing this, then you have to include Homan Square on the list of facilities that prisoners are taken into and a record made. It can’t be an exempt facility.”

Indeed, Chicago police guidelines appear to ban the sorts of practices Church and the lawyers said occur at Homan Square.

A directive titled “Processing Persons Under Department Control” instructs that “investigation or interrogation of an arrestee will not delay the booking process,” and arrestees must be allowed “a reasonable number of telephone calls” to attorneys swiftly “after their arrival at the first place of custody.” Another directive, “Arrestee and In-Custody Communications,” says police supervisors must “allow visitation by attorneys.”

Attorney Scott Finger said that the Chicago police tightened the latter directive in 2012 after quiet complaints from lawyers about their lack of access to Homan Square. Without those changes, Church’s attorneys might not have gained entry at all. But that tightening – about a week before Church’s arrest – did not prevent Church’s prolonged detention without a lawyer, nor the later cases where lawyers were unable to enter.

The combination of holding clients for long periods, while concealing their whereabouts and denying access to a lawyer, struck legal experts as a throwback to the worst excesses of Chicago police abuse, with a post-9/11 feel to it.

On a smaller scale, Homan Square is “analogous to the CIA’s black sites,” said Andrea Lyon, a former Chicago public defender and current dean of Valparaiso University Law School. When she practiced law in Chicago in the 1980s and 1990s, she said, “police used the term ‘shadow site’” to refer to the quasi-disappearances now in place at Homan Square.

“Back when I first started working on torture cases and started representing criminal defendants in the early 1970s, my clients often told me they’d been taken from one police station to another before ending up at Area 2 where they were tortured,” said Taylor, the civil-rights lawyer most associated with pursuing the notoriously abusive Area 2 police commander Jon Burge. “And in that way the police prevent their family and lawyers from seeing them until they could coerce, through torture or other means, confessions from them.”

Police often have off-site facilities to have private conversations with their informants. But a retired Washington DC homicide detective, James Trainum, could not think of another circumstance nationwide where police held people incommunicado for extended periods.

“I’ve never known any kind of organized, secret place where they go and just hold somebody before booking for hours and hours and hours. That scares the hell out of me that that even exists or might exist,” said Trainum, who now studies national policing issues, to include interrogations, for the Innocence Project and the Constitution Project.

Regardless of departmental regulations, police frequently deny or elide access to lawyers even at regular police precincts, said Solowiej of First Defense Legal Aid. But she said the outright denial was exacerbated at Chicago’s secretive interrogation and holding facility: “It’s very, very rare for anyone to experience their constitutional rights in Chicago police custody, and even more so at Homan Square,” Solowiej said.

Church said that one of his more striking memories of Homan Square was the “big, big vehicles” police had inside the complex that “look like very large MRAPs that they use in the Middle East.”

Cook County, home of Chicago, has received some 1,700 pieces of military equipment from a much-criticized Pentagon program transferring military gear to local police. It includes a Humvee, according to a local ABC News report.

Tracy Siska, a criminologist and civil-rights activist with the Chicago Justice Project, said that Homan Square, as well as the unrelated case of ex-Guantánamo interrogator and retired Chicago detective Richard Zuley, showed the lines blurring between domestic law enforcement and overseas military operations.

“The real danger in allowing practices like Guantánamo or Abu Ghraib is the fact that they always creep into other aspects,” Siska said.

“They creep into domestic law enforcement, either with weaponry like with the militarization of police, or interrogation practices. That’s how we ended up with a black site in Chicago.”

Estonia shows off NATO ties at celebrations on Russian border

Estonia marked its independence day Tuesday with a military parade featuring NATO hardware and troops on its eastern border with Russia amid heightened east-west tensions over Ukraine.

Around 100 British, Dutch, Spanish, Latvian and Lithuanian troops marched in the snow alongside some 1,300 Estonian soldiers to mark the independence of the formerly Soviet-ruled republic, now a member of the European Union and NATO.

“History has taught us that if we do not defend ourselves, nobody else will,” General Riho Teras, Estonia’s chief of staff, said at the parade.

“The events in Ukraine that have kept the entire world awake, demonstrate very clearly that we ourselves must maintain security,” he added.

Two US Stryker armoured personnel carriers and a number of Dutch CV90 tanks were also on parade, equipment NATO has brought into the Baltics for a wave of exercises on the heels of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula and subsequent meddling in that country’s east.

The annual parade has taken on particular importance this year in the context of jitters in the Baltic countries.

Holding the parade in Narva on the Russian border, where a majority of residents are ethnic Russian, was seen by commentators as sending a strong signal to Moscow about NATO’s committment to collective defence.

General Adrian Bradshaw, NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, said last week that Russia could try to seize territory from the alliance’s states off the back of fighting in Ukraine.

British Defence Secretary Michael Fallon reportedly also told journalists last week that there was a “real and present danger” to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

However, few ethnic-Russian Narva locals who came to the parade seemed to echo fears of a Russian intervention.

“In my opinion national security is blown up by the press, it’s nothing serious, everything is okay, no one is going to attack anyone,” said 55-year-old Yuri Melnikov.

Elvira Neimann, 77, said she’s been living in Narva since the end of the Second World War in 1945: “I feel part of Estonia, not Russia.”

“We’re all tolerant people, Russia is our friendly neighbour,” she told AFP.

Lithuania said Tuesday it would return to limited conscription later this year as concern mounts over Russian military exercises near NATO Baltic states.

The Soviet Union annexed the three small states during World War II. They won independence in 1991 and have had rocky ties with Moscow ever since.

Noticed the unusual number of movies about Zombies currently available? Last year alone there were a spate of such movies. From Wyrmwood, an Australian movie that could be described as sort of Mad Max featuring the living dead to REC 4: Apocalypse and Ojuju, a Nigerian movie and Life After Beth, a comedy featuring yet more of the living dead.
Nor is the theme limited by medium. Apart from movies the Zombie onslaught can also be found in video games and TV shows.
All in all it seems Zombies are the order of the day.
However, if you thought the number of such movies was unusual you’re not alone. Jim Stone thinks its social programming and vaccines are the key

I think I figured out why they are pushing zombies so hard

Jim Stone — jimstonefreelance.com Feb 23, 2015

The zombie meme is more than viral, true, zombies have usually scored well at the box office in the past, but I think Star Wars and other sci fi moves score bigger overall yet sci-fi is not pushed in my face everywhere I go. Though naturally popular, the zombie meme cannot possibly warrant as much attention as it is getting, and I believe I know exactly why zombies are everywhere, and it is called social programming before a huge forced vaccine campaign where the vaccine itself causes a zombie like state while it wrecks the recipient. Let me explain . . .
Dees Mandatory Vaccine. Click to enlarge

Dees Mandatory Vaccine. Click to enlarge

In their push for intellectual dominance over the masses, the “elite” are getting away with destroying our children with brain destroying vaccines largely because children who are as young as they are when they get shot up have no reference to a past life, no knowledge of what they should be as “normal” and no way to communicate something horrible has happened to them. All children get knocked to a lower level by the new intentionally sabotaged vaccines, and only the worst affected exhibit the down grade as autism.
If the “elite” want to do the same type of damage to the adults, when the adults KNOW what they should be capable of they need a pretext – like a zombie virus, so when the vaccine itself wipes adults down to a lower intellectual level, it can be claimed THE VACCINE SAVED YOU, YOU HAD THE DISEASE BUT THANKS TO THE VACCINE YOU WILL NOT BE A COMPLETE ZOMBIE, IT STOPPED YOU FROM BEING TOTALLY DESTROYED. Meanwhile, there is no zombie virus out there at all, it is just cover for vaccine damage.
Obviously such a campaign to destroy adults would have to be forced, because if there were a large number of adults that got no shot, and only adults who received the shot went stupid, it would be obvious the shot was entirely responsible for all zombie symptoms. It would be too obvious and could spark an uprising.
As any proven child molesting pedophile member of British Royalty, the luciferian sect of the Jewish community, or any other high level pervert who has sold out to Satan knows, children consider anything normal because they have no reference to anything else. So when they go stupid from a vaccine, they have no way of knowing anything happened. Only a perv would formulate the vaccines to do what they are doing to the children now, and because adults DO have a reference, those same pervs have to formulate a way to fool and destroy a much harder target. The zombie meme fits into this very well.
I believe the “elite” have lost their patience with people intelligent enough to see through their lies, and that in addition to the prison camps and whatever else they have ready for those who are already awake, they will have their vaccine ready to take care of the entire population of sleeping sheep, to permanently stupefy them and make GOOD AND SURE they never wake up.
Just take a look at the kids now. They only follow, they DO NOT THINK. It’s all get this feed from there, work only as a team, NEVER THINK FOR YOURSELF – this, to a degree may be possible to program in school, but it is so prominently in place now that something else is obviously at play, and I believe it is the initial shots they start their lives with as children. The autism stats more than imply something is amiss, they prove it. If they want to do the same thing to the adults, there has to be an explanation for why adults suddenly started getting autism as well. Zombie virus?

Materialism Fever; World Pandemic

Reflections in a Petri Dish — Feb 24, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
It’s no accident that Dog is God Spelled backwards.
Is the world as wicked as it seems to me to be? Some of us long for sanctuary and surely succor too. It’s one thing to be ‘involved’ with the world. Then you’re not troubled by this weltschmerz and the strange and occasional angst that comes to one who is no longer capable of being involved with the world. Woke up at 1:30 AM. It keeps getting earlier. One of these days it will be yesterday, just like that, or that tomorrow that never comes but somehow, it finally does and you’re finally ahead of the game or out of the game.
Does the world actually chew people up and spit them out? It seems like it does. It’s a big world; something like seven billion people. I find it hard to get my head around that number. I look at it but it just bounces from zero to zero, like one of those balls that set the timing for lyrics on a kid’s TV show. There’s this place called Indonesia. A whole lot of people live there. I don’t know any of them. I don’t know what goes on there. I heard about a place called Timor where some bad things happened. It’s like a dream, or a nightmare if you happened to be there. I suppose this is more of the world doing its laundry, here in The Kali Yuga. It’s been laundry day, every day, for a long time; wash, rinse, spin, repeat cycle, repeat cycle. Seven billion people would not be here for no reason. This is simple logic but the vast majority of the residents of this world are unable to put this together in their heads because they have a fever. There is a fever pandemic that holds the world in thralldom. It’s Materialism fever.
Materialism fever is a complex thing. It’s not just a fascination with the external world, to the exclusion of virtues and pursuits that apply to states of being that are possible when the fever has gone into remission. What it does is to color ones thoughts and emotions and this affects the manner in which one sees and hears. It affects the value given to every experience. It affects the types of experiences that are sought out. This contagion is massively amplified by its presence in the group mind. It creates a hive mind which can be very difficult to break away from the influence of.
There are traditional venues that are routinely expressed as a result of Materialism fever and there are traditional mindsets that attend these venues. Materialism fever is an aggressive pathology. It turns all of the venues into wars. War is the primary vehicle that drives the economy. War is the basic drive of commerce, as it expresses itself in the various theaters where the manufacture, transport and sale of goods takes place. Today the interplay between men and women is a war and there is all too often no harmony or Love manifesting between these opposites.
There are people seeking to control these seven billion. They seek to control how they live and what they do. They seek to control how they think and what they think about. They seek to control how they feel and to set the tone for the particular focus of the feelings and the types of responses generated.
There are different ways that one can control the masses and usually this is accomplished by a combination of them. Some of the general control mechanisms are educational and social programming, fear; which expresses itself through a manipulation of the availability and cost of shelter and food, the presence or lack of employment opportunities, the threat of censure and possibly imprisonment, loss of rights and other forms of menace. In some cases, there is much worse and places like Timor are now multiplied across the face of the Earth and this is all made possible by the relentless drive soulless commerce in the service of war. There are all kinds of wars. There are information wars and wars of commerce. There are all sorts of reasons for war. War is a madness that is generated by Materialism fever.
Today, visible is watching Foxcatcher. I had previously thought another actor deserved the award, based on comparison against mediocre competition. Watching Steve Carell play John Dupont is like watching Brando. It’s hard to recognize him from his previous roles when matched against this. It’s an ironic thing to watch this in the context of today’s posting. This is a very subtle film; not the sort of film they make these days. It’s slow but riveting, if that makes sense.
One of the primary ways that people are controlled and which doesn’t get the notice and mention that it deserves is SEX. When you can manipulate the intensity and direction of the public’s sexual expression, you literally have them by the balls. When you can mutate this basic drive, you can confuse people. Sexual identity is an integral part of one’s being.
In times of Materialism fever, Nature gets bent and distorted in ways that serve the interest of those set upon controlling the masses. Shame and guilt are used to drive people in particular directions. It keeps them chained to the wheel.
The most insidious feature of Materialism fever is that everything abnormal begins to look normal. A portion of the world is permitted to get away with anything they please to do. The rest of the world is not. A gulf develops between the few and the many and the gulf widens and widens and the excesses of the few become more and more outrageous. Millions die in wars fought for nothing more than banker profit and banker advantage. If you are on the banker team, you can profit but… at the expense of being owned. For many, that is no problem. For them, the juice is worth the squeeze. They don’t even realize that they are what the juice is being made from. The people pay tribute in the currency of human blood.
It is hard to see justice in this world of the moment and that is because there is very little evidence of it to be found along the lines of what we usually look for to prove something out. I can come up with only one reason for this and that is that what is taking place was set in motion at a former time that we have very little evidence of. We don’t know what to relate any of this to. Because of this, there are many people who believe its all Darwinism, or it’s all random, or it’s caused by some kind of aliens who came out of a volcano millions of years ago, which is something you get from Scientology. Scientology is one of a number of elitist schemes that are endemic of Materialism fever and it is very similar to Satanism, as are all of the cult antics of the time. Meanwhile, the traditional religious faiths are being possessed by one form or another of Materialism fever, which manifests as Fundamentalism, radical suppression of individual rights, weird interpretations of dogma and various frenzied expressions of teachings and doctrines directed toward mind control.
Those seeking to control the masses realize that they have to control both church and state, while giving appearance otherwise. They set up oppositions to themselves and then control that too.
Let me move to a conclusion here and also point out that there is only so much that can be said in a brief posting. Then again, if you can’t say it with brevity, it’s unlikely it can be communicated in an extended complexity. The truth can be elusive. So let us say that this idea of control by the few is an illusion and it is time sensitive. It can exist only so long as the illusion of it exists. That can continue for a longer period of time than we might wish and try us to the limits of our endurance; those of us who know it is an illusion and want no part of it. For everyone else, it is a blur of varying density.
It is not the few who control the dream or movie. They are as much under control as those they appear to have control over. It’s all an acting out of the payback for events that preceded the events that led to it. It keeps happening for so long as we live in a world of blind men gumming each other to death. If the world is merely a projection of the mind then we all bear the responsibility for the world we live in. You see what you see around you. There it is. For most people, they see what they want to see, whether it is there or not. Their self constructed reality is so powerful they do not permit themselves to accept the possibility that it is delusion. It traps them as a willing prisoner of unfortunate design that comes about through some sort of accommodation to the greater world that seems to be under the control of the few. One can only see to themselves on this matter and hope that the example of liberation set by anyone who has managed to accomplish it will somehow work on the minds of those still in subjugation.
Materialism fever, catch it!!!

Obama failed his coup in Venezuela

Thierry Meyssan — Voltairenet.org Feb 24, 2015

Since February 12 millions have taken to the streets in Venezuela. Click to enlarge

Millions took to the streets in Venezuela following the attempted coup. Click to enlarge

President Obama had given a warning. In his new doctrine of Defence (National Security Strategy), he wrote: “We stand with citizens whose full exercise of democracy is in danger, as the Venezuelans.” Yet, Venezuela is, since the adoption of the 1999 constitution, one of the most democratic countries in the world. This sentence presaged the worst to prevent it from continuing its path to independence and wealth redistribution.

It was on February 6, 2015. Washington was finishing developing the plan for the overthrow of the democratic institutions of Venezuela. The coup was planned for February 12.

“Operation Jericho” was supervised by the National Security Council (NSC), under the authority of Ricardo Zuñiga. This “diplomat” is the grandson of the homonymous president of the Honduran National Party who organized the coups of 1963 and 1972 in favor of General López Arellano. He directed the CIA station in Havana (2009-11), where he recruited and financed agents to form the opposition to Fidel Castro while negotiating the resumption of diplomatic relations with Cuba (finally concluded in 2014).

As always in this type of operation, Washington is careful to not appear involved in the events it leads. The CIA works through supposedly non-governmental organizations to organize coup leaders: the National Endowment for Democracy and its two pseudopods of the right (the International Republican Institute) and left (the National Democratic Institute) Freedom House and the International Center for Non-Profit Law. In addition, the United States always seeks allies to outsource parts of the coup, in this case at least Germany (responsible for the protection of NATO nationals during the coup), Canada (responsible for controlling the civilian international airport in Caracas), Israel (responsible for the assassination of Chavez personalities) and the UK (in charge of the propaganda coup). Finally, they mobilize their political networks that are ready to recognize the coup: Washington Senator Marco Rubio, former Chile president, Sebastián Piñera, in Colombia former Presidents Alvaro Uribe and Andres Pastrana, in Mexico the former presidents Felipe Calderón and Vicente Fox, in Spain the former President of the Government José María Aznar.

To justify the coup, the White House had encouraged large Venezuelan companies to warehouse rather than distribute essential commodities. The idea was to cause queues at the shops, and to infiltrate agents into the crowd to cause riots. In reality, though there had been supply problems in January-February and queues in front of stores, never did Venezuelans attack shops.

To strengthen its economic action, on December 18, 2014, President Obama signed a law imposing new sanctions against Venezuela and several of its leaders. Officially, this was to punish individuals who had suppressed student protests. In fact, since the beginning of the year, Washington was paying four times the medium salary income – to gangs so that they would attack the police. The pseudo-students had thus killed 43 people in a few months and spread terror in the streets of the capital.

Military action was overseen by General Thomas W. Geary, from SOUTHCOM in Miami, and Rebecca Chavez, from the Pentagon, and outsourced to a private army, Academi (formerly Blackwater); a company now administered by Admiral Bobby R. Inman (former head of the NSA) and John Ashcroft (the former Attorney General of the Bush administration). A Super Tucano, registered N314TG, purchased by the Virginia firm in 2008 to assassinate Raul Reyes, the No. 2 man in the Colombian FARC, was to be disguised as an airplane of the Venezuelan army. It was supposed to bomb the Miraflores presidential palace and other targets from a pre-determined dozen, including the Ministry of Defence, the management of Intelligence at the ALBA, Telesur television channel. The plane, being parked in Colombia, the operational headquarters of “Jericho” had been installed at the US Embassy in Bogota with the participation of the Ambassador, Kevin Whitaker and his deputy, Benjamin Ziff.

Some senior officers, active or retired, had registered in advance a message to the nation in which they announced the takeover of power in order to restore order. They were scheduled to subscribe to the transition plan, published on February 12 in the morning by El Nacional and drafted by the US State Department. A new government would have been formed, led by former MP María Corina Machado.

The coup was supposed to place Maria Corina Machado in power. On January 26, she hosted her main foreign accomplices in Caracas. Click to enlarge

María Corina Machado was the president of Súmate, the association that organized and lost the recall referendum against Hugo Chávez Frias, in 2004, already with money from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the French advertising services of Jacques Seguela. Despite her defeat, she was received with honor by President George W. Bush in the Oval Office, May 31, 2005. Elected representative of Miranda state in 2011, she suddenly appeared on 21 March 2014 as Chief of the Panamanian delegation to the Organization of American States (OAS). She was immediately dismissed from her duties as a member for violation of sections 149 and 191 of the Constitution.

To facilitate the coordination of the coup, María Corina Machado organized a symposium in Caracas on January 26, “Citizen Power and Democracy today”, which was attended by most of the Venezuelan and foreign personalities involved.

No luck, Venezuelan Military Intelligence watched personalities suspected of hatching a previous plot to assassinate President Maduro. Last May, the Caracas prosecutor had accused María Corina Machado, Henrique Salas Römer, governor, former diplomat Diego Arria, lawyer Gustavo Tarre Birceño, Eligio Cedeño, banker and businessman Pedro M. Burelli, but they challenged emails, claiming they had been falsified by Military Intelligence. Of course, they were all in cahoots.

By tracking these conspirators, Military Intelligence discovered “Operation Jericho”. On the night of February 11, the main leaders of the plot and a Mossad agent were arrested and aviation security was enhanced. Others were rounded up on the 12th. On the 20th, confessions obtained permitted the arrest of an accomplice, the mayor of Caracas, Antonio Ledezma.

President Nicolas Maduro immediately intervened on television to denounce the conspirators. Meanwhile in Washington, the spokesman for the State Department was joking with journalists who remembered the coup in Honduras organized by Obama in 2009 – for Latin America – or, more recently, the attempted coup in Macedonia in January, 2015 – for the rest of the world -, stating: “These charges, like all previous ones, are ridiculous. It is a matter of long-standing policy: the United States does not support political transitions through unconstitutional means. Political transitions must be democratic, constitutional, peaceful and legal. We have seen repeatedly that the Venezuelan government is trying to divert attention from its own actions by accusing the United States or other members of the international community of responsibility for the events in Venezuela. These efforts reflect a lack of seriousness on the part of the Government of Venezuela to cope with the serious situation it faces. »

For Venezuelans the failed coup poses a serious question: how do we keep democracy alive, if the main opposition leaders are in jail for the crimes they were about to commit against democracy?

For those who think, wrongly, that the United States has changed, that it is no longer an imperialist power and that now it defends democracy in the world, “Operation Jericho” provides endless food for thought.

The United States against Venezuela
- In 2002, the United States organized a coup against elected President Hugo Chavez Frias [1], then they murdered the judge in charge of the investigation, Danilo Anderson [2].
- In 2007, they tried to change the regime by organizing a “color revolution” with Trotskyist groups. [3]
- In 2014, they seemed to give up their goal and supported anarchist groups to vandalize and destabilize the country, it is the Guarimba [4]

Sweden’s Multicultural Center Expert on Islamophobia Joins ISIS

Daniel Greenfield — Frontpage Mag Feb 23, 2015

Abo Ibrahim Al Swedi. Click to enlarge

Abo Ibrahim Al Swedi. Click to enlarge

Michael Nikolai Skråmo aka Abo Ibrahim Al Swedi probably didn’t need a job. He was trained as a chef before he converted to Islam.

The 29-year-old Swede, who today calls himself “Abdul Samad al Swedi”, grew up in Gothenburg. He converted to Islam during a field trip to Egypt about ten years ago and has since been engaged in a series of tax-funded Muslim organizations.

In 2009 he was invited to SVT, where he told Swedish viewers how Muslim phobia (Islamophobia) and hatred was spread around Europe.

Previously, the Swede have been heavily involved to counter what he described as a misleading picture of Muslims as violent fanatics. In an episode of SVT debate, which can be seen on Youtube, he attacked the malicious picture of Muslims spread in Europe.

“This fear is based on ignorance of Islam,” Michael Skråmo said.

Obviously. If only people truly knew what Islam was.

As a lecturer Abdul Samad has mainly been active in the radical Bellevue Mosque in Gothenburg. There he held a series of sermons on the association Multicultural Youth Center (MKUC), notorious for four youth leaders of the Association, including president of the association , once armed with knives attempted to attack Lars Vilks in an art event at Red Rock in Gothenburg. It is worth noting that sermons should have been co-arranged with the wide Muslim educational association Ibn Rushd. Abdul Samad has also been linked to the Swedish Federation of Muslims , also a compound of radical preachers, located at the Bellevue Mosque.

And then he took the inevitable next step.

Michael Skråmo, 29, took the whole family – his little four children and wife – to the IS-controlled area inside Syria. Now Skråmo filmed a propaganda video outside the Syrian city Kobane where he preaches jihad and calls Swedish jihadists to leave Sweden and join the “holy war”.

“My brothers, ‘hijra’ (migration) and ‘jihad’ are so simple. It only costs a few thousand ‘lapp’ [Swedish kronor],” he says in Swedish. “Do you not wish in in your heart to fight and show God what you have to offer him? The door to jihad is standing there waiting for you. It’s the fastest way to Jannah [Paradise].”

According to Sweden’s Expressen newspaper, he converted to Islam in 2005, after which he travelled widely in the Islamic world, learning Arabic and studying the religion.

At the end of the video, Skråmo becomes more emotional.

“I want you to be here with me. I want us to hang out in Jannah. My wonderful brothers, take this decision, trust in Allah, sacrificing your money and your life for Allah, and you will receive the highest from Allah “.

And if the whole ISIS thing doesn’t work out, he can always go back to Sweden and lecture the natives on how they’re Islamophobes for associating Islam with terrorism.

Thailand Has Become a Police State

henrymakow.com — Feb 24, 2015

“Semper Castleton,” an expat living in Thailand for more than twenty years, reports on the power struggle between NWO fronts and the military. Either way, the Thai people will not gain the democracy they seek.
Three years ago, Castleton reported here ” that Thailand is now on the slippery slope to a police state.” His fears have been realized.

by Semper Castleton (henrymakow.com)

Yingluck Shinawatra. Click to enlarge

Yingluck Shinawatra. Click to enlarge

For the past few years, Thailand has been controlled by a coalition government based on the political machine left behind by Taksin Shinawatra , the deposed Prime Minister ousted by the 2006 military coup . This government has been fronted by his sister (some people say daughter) Yingluck Shinawatra.
It has been a weak coalition. However, it has allowed Taksin Shinawatra to turn Thailand into a client state of the West. His violent red shirt supporters from the country’s north had become stronger and stronger. Whilst witnessing that situation, the indigenous institutions have been far from happy . It was their turn to strike back.
Consequently, in May 2014 there was a swift and brutal coup d’etat. The Yingluck coalition government was busted by the Military.
Peoples were caught by surprise! Their emotions were mixed at that time.
This military takeover had the full blessing of the Monarchy. Martial law was declared and the military took charge of everything. A few weeks later the TV stations were allowed to open and broadcast but under strict conditions. There was a different feel to air.
The limited resistance by Taksin supporters was quickly crushed. The leader of the coup was prompt to promise an early return to civilian rule and democratic elections by November 2014.
It never happened by that date and it prompted ‘do gooders with agendas in Thailand’ and businessmen in Europe and America, with allegiance to Shinawatra, to publicly condemn Thailand. Even the American Secretary of State made a strongly worded plea to the Military leaders to restore civilian rule as quickly as possible. Such condemnation was ignored by the military rulers.
The leader of the coup was blessed (again) by the Thai King .
The Shinawatra family was dealt another blow in January 2015 when Yingluck, 47, was impeached for her part in the failed rice farmers program. She had allowed corruption to go unchecked. Many rice farmers had committed suicide because the government had not made the payments that were due to them.
Yingluck stated that she was innocent. She even ‘sourgraped” to her Facebook account much to the amusement of Thai people. At the same time, members of her fallen government threatened there would be violence on the streets, if she was impeached. Two days after her impeachment, a bomb went off in central Bangkok. No one was killed.
With her impeachment, Thai people hoped that finally the Shinawatra legacy and influence was over. But there was still some resistance left.

US Army’s Top Secret Arctic City Under The Ice “Camp Century”‏

Worldtruth.tv — Feb 2015

Camp Thule GreenlandIt’s not every day the one has the opportunity to observe the construction of a secret underground base. This video is an actual declassified US Army film, documenting the nuclear-powered construction process of Camp Century, beneath the ice of central Greenland.

The base was constructed in the late 1950s, during the height of the Cold War, for “research” purposes.

To study the feasibility of working under the ice, a “cover” project, known as Camp Century was launched in 1960. However, unsteady ice conditions within the ice sheet caused the project to be cancelled in 1966.

It eventually came out that the ultimate objective of Camp Century was of placing medium-range missiles under the ice – close enough to Moscow to strike targets within the Soviet Union. This was kept secret from the Danish government, which owns Greenland and which was legally a “nuclear free zone”, in keeping with Danish policy.

Details of the missile base project were classified for decades, first coming to light in January 1997, when the Danish Foreign Policy Institute (DUPI) was asked by the Danish Parliament to research the history of nuclear weapons in Greenland during the Thulegate scandal.

A report confirmed that the U.S. stockpiled nuclear weapons in Greenland until 1965, contradicting assurances by Danish foreign minister, Niels Helveg Petersen that the weapons were in Greenland’s airspace, but never on the ground. The DUPI report also revealed details of Project Iceworm, a hitherto secret United States Army plan to store up to 600 nuclear missiles under the Greenland ice cap.

Danish workers involved in the clean-up operation claimed long-term health problems resulting from their exposure to the radiation.

The crash-landing of an American B-52 bomber – laden with nuclear weapons – in Greenland in 1968, and the ensuing radioactive effect on local rescue teams, would have been consigned to the footnotes of history had it not been for one intrepid Aarhus radio journalist

Let me take you back to an Arctic night in January 1968, still the era of the Cold War. An American B-52 bomber gets into trouble, the crew scramble to safety and the plane comes down in Greenland with an enormous amount of weapons-grade plutonium on board. Residents of Greenland working at the American base in Thule immediately set out across the ice with husky teams to get to the downed plane – the Americans desperate to get there before anyone else.”

These were the words spoken to the European Parliament in 2007 by Diana Wallis, a British MEP. It sounds like a promising plot for an international blockbuster movie, but this largely forgotten piece of history not only had serious ramifications for the unfortunate workers commissioned to clean up the radioactive debris, but also uncovered clandestine nuclear activity on Danish soil, despite the nuclear-free zone peacetime policy announced by Denmark in 1957.

Perched right at the top of the globe, Thule Air Base has been of enormous strategic importance to the US since its construction in the early 1950s. It’s an ideal location for radar to scan the skies for any stray incoming missiles. What the Danish populace did not know or need to know at the time was that, since 1961, nuclear-armed B-52 bombers had been continuously circling Thule Air Base on routine ‘hard head’ missions, as part of a cold war strategic missile warning system. Not only that, but around 50 nuclear weapons had also been stored at the base between 1958 and 1965.

It was on one of these routine missions on 21 January 1968 that a fire broke out in the cockpit of a B-52 stratofortress. The pilot, Captain John Haug, gave the mayday signal, and the plane, loaded with four nuclear warheads, was abandoned to crash into the ice of Greenland. The husky rescue teams set off and the rest is history, although had it not been for the unrelenting detective work of Aarhus radio journalist Poul Brink almost two decades later, it would have remained in the footnotes.

From Wikipedia:

Project Iceworm was the code name for a top secret US Army program during the Cold War to build a network of mobile nuclear missile launch sites under the Greenland ice sheet. The ultimate objective of placing medium-range missiles under the ice – close enough to Moscow to strike targets within the Soviet Union – was kept secret from the Danish government. To study the feasibility of working under the ice, a highly publicized “cover” project, known as “Camp Century” was launched in 1960. However, unsteady ice conditions within the ice sheet caused the project to be cancelled in 1966.

German, 94, charged with murders from time as Nazi sergeant at Auschwitz

Associated Press — Feb 23, 2015

Railway tracks leading to the entrance Auschwitz-Birinau

Railway tracks leading to the entrance Auschwitz-Birinau

German prosecutors have charged a 94-year-old man with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder on allegations he served in the Nazis’ Auschwitz death camp.

Schwerin prosecutors’ spokesman Stefan Urbanek said Monday the suspect was an SS sergeant who served as a medic in Auschwitz in an SS hospital. In that role, Urbanek said the man helped the extermination camp function and could thus be charged as an accessory to the 1944 killings.

Urbanek wouldn’t release the suspect’s name in line with privacy laws.

The man is one of 30 former Auschwitz suspects against whom federal investigators recommended in 2013 that state prosecutors pursue charges under a new precedent in German law.

His attorney, Peter-Michael Diestel, told the Bild newspaper there’s no evidence of any “concrete criminal act” by his client.
