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

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

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

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

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

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

Movie Analysis

The Workers

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

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

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

The Thinker s

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

 Joh Fredersen, the Demi-God

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

 Metropolis themes are also very prevalent in fashion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Which is kind of reminiscent of this music video ending.

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

 The Moral of the Story

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

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

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

Analogies Between Metropolis and Today’s Pop Culture

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

In Conclusion

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

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

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


Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

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

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

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

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

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

Turkish newspaper editor in court for ‘espionage’ after revealing weapon convoy to Syrian militants

Russia Today — Nov 26, 2015

A still image grabbed from a video published on the website of the Turkish Cumhuriyet daily on May 29, 2015 shows mortar shells in boxes intercepted on a truck destined for Syria.

A Turkish prosecutor asked a court to imprison the editor-in-chief of Cumhuriyet newspaper pending trial for espionage and treason. In May, the outlet published photos of weapons it said were then transferred to Syria by Turkey’s intelligence agency.

Besides the editor, Can Dündar, the prosecution said it is seeking the same pre-trial restrictions for Cumhuriyet’s representative in Ankara, Erdem Gül.

Dündar arrived at an Istanbul court on Thursday, saying that he and his colleague “came here to defend journalism.”

“We came here to defend the right of the public to obtain the news and their right to know if their government is feeding them lies. We came here to show and to prove that governments cannot engage in illegal activity and defend this,” Dündar was cited by Today’s Zaman.

The articles, published on Cumhuriyet’s front page in May, claimed that Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) is smuggling weapons in trucks into Syria and was caught doing so twice in 2014. The trucks were allegedly stopped and searched by police, with photos and videos of their contents obtained by Cumhuriyet.

According to the paper, the trucks were carrying six steel containers, with 1,000 artillery shells, 50,000 machine gun rounds, 30,000 heavy machine gun rounds and 1,000 mortar shells. The arms were reportedly delivered to extremist groups fighting against the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad, whom Ankara wants ousted from power.

The Turkish authorities denied the allegations, saying that the trucks were carrying aid to Syrian ethnic Turkmen tribespeople and labeled their interception an act of “treason” and “espionage.”

A 2014 report by Human Rights Watch warned that under Erdogan’s rule Turkey has seen the erosion of human rights via a crackdown on media freedom, dissent and a weakening of the rule of law.

Many journalists in the country are facing harsh prison terms for exposing corruption in the government and surveillance by the Turkish state.

Egdogan’s regime has also attempted to silence social media by blocking YouTube and Twitter on a number of occasions.


There are Real Holocaust and False Holocausts and Far too many Moral Cowards

Smoking Mirrors — Nov 25, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
In a time of the greatest media saturation ever and in a time when 96% of the media is in the hands of six corporations that are all Zionist, Jewish owned, it stands to reason that fabricated lies are the order of the day and the truth lies beaten, bleeding and alone in a dark alley. It has gotten to the point that you can assume that most everything you hear from these sources are lies, designed to support their world domination agenda. The common mind is relentlessly seduced day after day and official terms of definition are given to all of the members of the small minority, who refute the lies that are being told. Anytime someone stands up and expresses what is OBSERVABLY true, they are slandered by the status quo and called ‘truthers’ or anti-Semites, or something else. As for being anti Semitic. The people applying this term are not Semitic to begin with. They are AshKeNAZI Khazars. DNA tests have proven this, just as it has been proven that it is the Palestinians who ARE Semitic. This is why the Khazar’s are seeking to genocide them out of existence and routinely murder them with government and military assistance every day. They burn alive women, children and men. They run over Palestinian girls and then step out of their cars and gun them down. They empty entire clips of automatic weapons into prepubescent school girls and then their courts acquit these psychopaths. This happens in some fashion every day. The truth is that the Palestinians are the ORIGINAL residents of this locations and the AshkeNAZI’s are interlopers and invaders.
They are engaged in changing the names of every Palestinian town. They are engaged in wiping out Palestinian history. When these invaders arrived after World War 2, they poisoned the Palestinian wells and mass murdered them, finally driving 700,000 Palestinians into exile. This is provable truth. To support their rights to murder these people they fabricated the biggest lie of the century called The Holocaust, which is now their state sanctioned religion of Victimhood and it never happened. There were no gas chambers and no mass extinctions or graves. The ground at these so called death camps has been tested with spectroscopic instruments and other means and there is no evidence of mass deaths. Now, when you go to Israeli owned Google you find all reports and articles on this have been expunged and replaced by Crass Media accounts that provide specious counter arguments. This is a recent occurrence. We did not bother to go deeper into the page count to see whether the articles are further back or simply gone. In any case all the most powerful official documents put Jewish deaths at under 300,000 and most of those were from Typhus. The lies were all engineered by Jewish torturers at Nuremberg who crushed Nazi officers testicles to control their testimony. Under torture people will say anything. Let us keep in mind that in the years prior to this the Jewish Cheka and powerful Jewish administrators killed tens of millions of Russians. You can see them right here. It is all there to be found if you care to look and the Russian Holocaust was a REAL Holocaust and only one of many done by the same people. Up to 60,000,000 were tortured and killed. This is ten times 6,000,000 and this one really happened.
Now today they have been at it again as Western Neo Cons in control of Western Foreign Policy have done similar in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon… it goes on and on and these are all Jews. You can’t dispute it because I can prove it. Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Richard Pearle, Michael Ledeen and many another. Of course, Counterpunch won’t tell the whole truth but maybe it’s better than nothing.
Obviously these people have a centuries long Satanic tradition of attempting to destroy and destroying the countries they inhabit and making war on everyone else. You may not want to know this but any inquiry will lead you to the same conclusions. People are afraid of the truth; afraid to know it and afraid to speak it but… not all of us afraid.
Alleged truth-tellers turn out to be liars and disinfo agents, as is clearly shown here with Glenn Greewald. Why would anyone of his acquired stature LIE about the Dancing Israelis? It is because he is a liar and the whole thing with Snowden and Assange and all the rest is to create an impression of truth being told in order to effectively lie later on, to greater advantage. You NEVER hear these guys criticizing or exposing Israel. None of the exposed intelligence EVER points to those who benefited the most from every evil thing done. Even though it is widely known among those who have taken the trouble to study it that Israel was behind 9/11, none of the exposed intelligence secrets EVER indicate any of it. Do the fucking math!
Why is the war in Syria going on? Because Israel wants Syria as a subjugated satellite nation. They stole the Golan Heights in a war they fabricated and then blamed on the people they attacked in the first place; just as it was in the Six Days War and all those other wars that THEY engineered. Their bombing of the U.S.S. Liberty was an effort to create a wider war and to draw in more powerful nations so… they attacked an allies ship and murdered the sailors aboard. This sort of thing goes on and on and on and never stops because all these nations that might protest are OWNED by the Satanic international bankers that print all the domestic currencies. It IS what it IS.
Russia did NOT violate Turkish air space. Turkey arbitrarily created an extended security zone into Syria of some miles. Erdogan is seeking to create an Islamic state in Turkey and he wants his piece of Syria that Israel has promised him. Zionst Ersatz (instead of Eretz) Israel demands all the land from the Nile to the Euphrates and they intend to kill everyone sitting on the land who is in their way and turn the rest into a slave population. This is what is going on with Syria. This is why the USA and NATO, under orders from Satan Worshiping Israeli Bankers created and fund IS, or ISIS or Daesh or whatever you what to call this rag tag terror army of religious extremists. It is to wipe out the present nation of Syria and turn the landscape into a killing zone.
Bad things are loose at every level as psychopathic corporations enforce their will upon the populations. Children and others are being paralyzed and blinded by mandatory vaccines. The Devil is loose upon the world and that means whatever force it is that stands in opposition to it is also loose but less evident, for the moment and less you think this is fantasy as some of you vain intellectuals maintain. How is it possible for one to exist without the other? We may not always know the difference between good and evil and many don’t but it is certain that some variation of either must exist because this is a world of opposites. You can’t have the world we know without night and day, hot and cold and so on and so forth.
Why do you see the things that are said here today, being said here again and again? Shouldn’t once be enough? Absolutely not. The truth is that the truth is seldom said at all and this is because the majority of people are moral cowards and lack confidence and conviction in and about the truth. The truth is very inconvenient. However, not telling the truth and living a lie costs lives. That might be okay if it was only your own but it is not. Every one of us who embrace the great lies that proliferate and replicate across time are complicit in the deaths of the people who die because of the force of these lies. Yes… that might be their karma. Yes… there are numerous arguments concerning the why and wherefore of all of this but for me it is simple. There are things I KNOW to be lies and things I KNOW to be true and I am responsible for what I know. If I know the truth and do not speak it because I am afraid, or self interested, or lazy or indifferent, that is on me
Yes… we could be diplomatic about the expression of it all in such a way as to avoid offending the feelings of others but… it that really possible? It is not and the people of which I speak have no feelings insofar as they apply to the greater number of us. They don’t give a shit about us. We are in the way or we are Eloi to these Morlocks. The greater and more widespread is the presence of Materialism, the greater the proliferation of psychopaths. These soulless husks must be called on their propensity to inflict injuries upon the larger populations. We have NEVER said that those of whom we speak about today are representative across the whole of the demographic of those who identify as Jews. This is not the case. There are many fine human representatives who are Jewish, just as is the case with Muslims and everyone else. However, those who refuse to acknowledge what is said here and easily proven and those who choose to share in the profits generated by these lies, are also complicit in the evil brought forth by these lies. I am immune to any arguments to the contrary about what has been said here today because it is all PROVABLY true and we and others have proven it many times by the presentation of fact.
The fact that according to their own measurements, the population of Jews INCREASED during the World War 2 years. How is that possible according to the Holocaust narrative??? I feel no need to add more than this at the moment. Just because it is unpopular and dangerous to say the Holocaust is a LIE is no proof whatsoever that it is not a LIE. As long as this world is populated with so many moral cowards, horrors such as those perpetrated will go on. However, I am certain that all is not as it appears and I am certain change is coming and I am certain that we shall see the light break on the darkness of this world. You, of course are free to believe what you like. This is what I believe. This is what I believe and this is what I know.
End Transmission…….
There might be a Thanksgiving radio broadcast tomorrow. Whether you will hear it is a matter of available technology. Regardless… may you all be in deep consideration of all those things you have to be grateful for tomorrow


Signs of a Dying Society

By Paul Buchheit — Information Clearing House Nov 24, 2015

While Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning and John Kiriakou are vilified for revealing vital information about spying and bombing and torture, a man who conspired with Goldman Sachs to make billions of dollars on the planned failure of subprime mortgages was honored by New York University for his “Outstanding Contributions to Society.”
This is one example of the distorted thinking leading to the demise of a once-vibrant American society. There are other signs of decay:
  1. A House Bill Would View Corporate Crimes as ‘Honest Mistakes’

Wealthy conservatives are pushing a bill that would excuse corporate leaders from financial fraud, environmental pollution, and other crimes that America’s greatest criminals deem simply reckless or negligent. The Heritage Foundation attempts to rationalize, saying “someone who simply has an accident by being slightly careless can hardly be said to have acted with a ‘guilty mind.’”
One must wonder, then, what extremes of evil, in the minds of conservatives, led to criminal charges against people apparently aware of their actions: the Ohio woman who took coins from a fountain to buy food; the California man who broke into a church kitchen to find something to eat; and the 90-year-old Florida activist who boldly tried to feed the homeless.
Of course, even without the explicit protection of Congress, CEOs are rarely charged for their crimes. Not a single Wall Street executive faced prosecution for the fraud-ridden 2008 financial crisis.
  1. Unpaid Taxes of 500 Companies Could Pay for a Job for Every Unemployed American

For two years. At the nation’s median salary of $36,000, for all 8 million unemployed.
Citizens for Tax Justice reports that Fortune 500 companies are holding over $2 trillion in profits offshore to avoid taxes that would amount to over $600 billion. Our society desperately needs infrastructure repair, but 8 million potential jobs are being held hostage beyond our borders.
  1. Almost 2/3 of American Families Couldn’t Afford a Single Pill of a Life-Saving Drug

62 percent of polled Americans said they couldn’t cover a $500 repair bill. If any of these Americans need a hepatitis pill from Gilead Sciences, or an anti-infection pill from Martin Shkreli’s company, they will have to do without.
An AARP study of 115 specialty drugs found that the average cost of a year’s worth of prescriptions was over $50,000, three times more than the average Social Security benefit. Although it’s true that most people don’t pay the full retail cost of medicine, the portion paid by insurance companies is ultimately passed on to consumers through higher premiums.
Pharmaceutical companies pay competitors to keep generic drugs out of the market, and they have successfully lobbied Congress to keep Medicare from bargaining for lower drug prices. The companies claim they need the high prices to pay for better medicines. But for every $1 they spend on basic research, they invest $19 in promotion and marketing.
  1. Violent Crime Down, Prison Population Doubles

FBI statistics confirm a dramatic decline in violent crimes since 1991, yet the number of prisoners has doubled over approximately the same period.
Meanwhile, white-collar prosecutions have been reduced by over a third, and, as noted above, corporate leaders are steadily working toward 100% tolerance for their crimes.
  1. One in Four Americans Suffer Mental Illness, Mental Health Facilities Cut by 90%

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 25 percent of adults experience mental illness in a given year, with almost half of the homeless population so inflicted. Yet from 1970 to 2002, the per capita number of public mental health hospital beds plummeted from over 200 per 100,000 to 20 per 100,000, and after the recession state cutbacks continued.
That leaves prison as the only option for many desperate Americans.
There exists a common theme amidst these signs of societal decay: The super-rich keep taking from the middle class as the middle class becomes a massive lower class. Yet the myth persists that we should all look up with admiration at the “self-made” takers who are ripping our society apart.

Air Defense Force Inaugurates New Centcom in Southwestern Iran

Introduction — Nov 25, 2015

Air defence centre, south west Iran. Click to enlarge

Coupled with the soon to-be-delivered S-300, the opening of a new air defence command-and-control centre marks another step in Iran’s development of an integrated national air defence system.
Right now Iran’s air defences have developed to the point where air strikes by Israel alone are pretty much out of the question. Only the U.S. has that capacity, although whether it has the will is another question. However given Iran’s steadily developing air defences, we are pretty sure that the U.S. military will think long and hard before embarking on that course of action.
In other words Iran is becoming a tough nut to crack, even for the U.S. In terms of military ability and technology, Iraq of the Gulf War pales in comparison with modern Iran.
Although the following report doesn’t precisely locate the centre beyond saying “south-western Iran”, we suspect that it will have the ability to monitor the airspace in and around the strategic Straits of Hormuz. Given that 20% of the world’s petroleum, and about 35% of the petroleum passes through the Straits, and that on the opposite side of the waterway are British and American naval facilities, it’s an area of obvious interest to Tehran.
All of which doesn’t mean that military conflict is about to erupt with Iran any time soon. The West is more focused on Russia right now. What that means however is that IF conflict does ensue Moscow will have a capable ally on its southern flank. An ally moreover that can not only guard Russia’s southern flank but one with the ability to monitor and close one of the world’s most important energy corridors. Ed.

Air Defense Force Inaugurates New Centcom in Southwestern Iran

Fars News — Nov 25, 2015

The Iranian Air Defense Force inaugurated a new command and control center in the Southwestern parts of the country in a ceremony participated by Lieutenant Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard.

“The command and control system of the Southwestern zone acts as a part of the Air Defense Base’s integrated command and control network and is capable of precisely monitoring and defending the Islamic Republic of Iran’s airspace in all dimensions,” Sabahifard told reporters on Wednesday.

“The system is a tactical combat system that operates through using tracing and collecting the active and passive data of hostile equipment and through cyber operations and electronic warfare,” he added.

Iran enjoys a highly powerful and capable integrated air defense system equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment.

In September, Iran unveiled two new home-made radar systems named Nazir and Bina with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting against electronic warfare on the occasion of Air Defense Day.

Nazir is a long-range and high-precision radar system which is highly capable of detecting targets in low radar cross section and is resistant to radar evading and anti-radar missiles.

The radar can detect all radar-evading targets and is capable of fighting electronic warfare.

Weapons Captured From ISIS – See For Yourself

Destructive Cabalist Dogma Dooms Humanity — Nov 25, 2015

ISIS, latest Illuminati masterpiece. Click to enlarge

Why do the Illuminati start wars ?
As Cabalists (Freemasons,) they are determined to destroy the social order as a precursor to establishing a world Communist dictatorship. Essentially, Cabalists need to turn the world upside down so that Satan can be on top.
All wars are designed to enslave and kill the feckless goyim who willingly embrace the role of traitors or dupes.

by Henry Makow Ph.D — (Revised from Sept 24, 2012)

The Cabalist Doctrine of Destruction provides a key to understanding world events.
According to the Cabala, which is the secret doctrine of Judaism and Freemasonry, “Evil and catastrophe [are] endemic factors in the process of creation. Without evil there could be no good, without destruction, creation could not take place.” (Kabbalah: An Introduction to Jewish Mysticism, by Byron L. Sherwin, p. 72.)
Cabalists believe the Old (Christian) Order must be ruthlessly destroyed before the New (Satanic) World Order, based on the Kabbalah, can be built.
Hence, the Illuminati motto: “Order Out of Chaos.” Hence, the Communist Manifesto advocates the destruction of nation, religion and family and the transfer of all private wealth to the Illuminati bankers, in the guise of the state.
The Doctrine of Destruction explains why war and revolution have been characterized by gratuitous genocide, terror and destruction.
It explains the banishment of God from public discourse and the widespread acceptance of obscenity, pornography and the occult. It explains the attack on gender and the promotion of homosexuality to heterosexuals. It explains the spate of false flag terror that is a hallmark of modern life.
It explains why humanity seems cursed by never-ending crises and catastrophes. They are engineered by the Illuminati to attack and destroy anything that smacks of the healthy divine order — spiritual or natural.

Guardian’s terrible dilemma over Corbyn

Jonathan Cook from Nazareth — Sept 20, 2015

In autumn 2002 the Observer newspaper’s correspondent Ed Vulliamy found confirmation of a terrible truth many of us already suspected. In a world-exclusive, he persuaded Mel Goodman, a former senior CIA official who still had security clearance at the Agency, to go on record that the CIA knew there were no WMD in Iraq. Everything the US and British governments were telling us to justify the coming attack on Iraq were lies.

Then something even more extraordinary happened. The Observer failed to print the story. In his book Flat Earth News, Nick Davies recounts that Vulliamy, one of the Observer’s most trusted reporters, submitted the piece another six times in different guises over the next half year. Each time the Observer spiked the story.

Vulliamy never went public with this monumental crime against real journalism (should there not be a media trials section at the Hague?). And the supposedly liberal-left Observer was never held accountable for its grave betrayal of its readership and the world community.

But at the weekend maybe the tables turned a little. The Observer gave Vulliamy a platform in its comment pages to take issue with its editorial the previous week savaging Jeremy Corbyn’s election as Labour Party leader.

In understandably cautious mode, Vulliamy called the paper’s stance towards Corbyn “churlish”, warning that it had lost the chance to stand apart from the rest of the British media, including the Guardian. All had taken vehemently against the new Labour leader from the very beginning of his candidacy.

we conjoined the chorus with our own – admittedly more progressive – version of this obsession with electoral strategy with little regard to what Corbyn says about the principles of justice, peace and equality (or less inequality).

What do these two confrontations between Vulliamy and the Observer –13 years apart; one public, one not – indicate about the changing status of the liberal-left media?

To understand what’s going on, we also need to consider the coverage of Corbyn in the Guardian, the better-known daily sister paper of the Sunday Observer.

All the Guardian’s inner circle of commentators, from Jonathan Freedland to Polly Toynbee, made public that they were dead against Corbyn from the moment he looked like he might win. When he served simply to justify claims that the Labour Party was a broad and tolerant church, these commentators were in favour of his standing. But as soon as he began to surge ahead, these same liberal-left pundits poured more scorn on him than they had reserved for any other party leader in living memory. In a few months Corbyn has endured more contempt from these fearless watchdogs of the left than the current Conservative prime minister, David Cameron, has suffered over many years.

The Guardian’s news coverage, meanwhile, followed exactly the same antagonistic formula as that of the rightwing press: ignore the policy issues raised by Corbyn, concentrate on trivial or perceived personality flaws, and frame the stories in establishment-friendly ways. We have had to endure in the Guardian the same patently ridiculous, manufactured reports about Corbyn, portraying him as sexist, anti-semitic, unpatriotic, and much more.

We could expect the rightwing media to exploit every opportunity to try to discredit Corbyn, but looking at the talkbacks it was clear Guardian readers expected much more from their paper than simple-minded character assassination.

Red neoliberals

The reality is that Corbyn poses a very serious challenge to supposedly liberal-left media like the Guardian and the Observer, which is why they hoped to ensure his candidacy was still-born and why, now he is leader, they are caught in a terrible dilemma.

While the Guardian and Observer market themselves as caring about justice and equality, but do nothing to bring them about apart from promoting tinkering with the present, hugely unjust, global neoliberal order, Corbyn’s rhetoric suggests that the apple cart needs upending.

If it achieves nothing else, Corbyn’s campaign has highlighted a truth about the existing British political system: that, at least since the time of Tony Blair, the country’s two major parliamentary parties have been equally committed to upholding neoliberalism. The Blue Neoliberal Party (the Conservatives) and the Red Neoliberal Party (Labour) mark the short horizon of current British politics. You can have either hardcore neoliberalism or slightly more softcore neoliberalism.

Corbyn shows that there should be more to politics than this false choice, which is why hundreds of thousands of leftists flocked back to Labour in the hope of getting him elected. In doing so, they overwhelmed the parliamentary Labour party (PLP), which vigorously opposed him becoming leader.

But where does this leave the Guardian and Observer, both of which have consistently backed “moderate” elements in the PLP? If Corbyn is exposing the PLP as the Red Neoliberal Party, what does that mean for the Guardian, the parliamentary party’s house paper?

Corbyn is not just threatening to expose the sham of the PLP as an alternative to the Conservatives, but the sham of Britain’s liberal-left media as a real alternative to the press barons. Which is why the Freedlands and Toynbees, who are the keepers of the Guardian flame, of its undeserved reputation as the left’s moral compass, demonstrated such instant antipathy to his sudden rise to prominence.

They and the paper followed the rightwing media in keeping the focus resolutely on Corbyn rather than recognising the obvious truth: this was about much more than one individual. The sudden outpouring of support for Corbyn reflected both an embrace of his authenticity and principles and a much more general anger at the injustices, inequalities and debasement of public life brought about by neoliberalism. Corbyn captured a mood, one that demands real, not illusory change. He is riding a wave, and to discredit Corbyn is to discredit the wave.

Character assassination

The Guardian and the Observer, complicit for so long with the Red Neoliberals led by Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband, thought they could kill off Corbyn’s campaign by joining in the general media bullying. They thought they could continue to police the boundaries of the political left – of what counts as credible on the left – and place Corbyn firmly outside those borders.

But he won even so – and with an enormous lead over his rivals. In truth, the Guardian’s character assassination of Corbyn, rather than discrediting him, served only to discredit the paper with its own readers.

Corbyn’s victory represented a huge failure not just for the political class in all its narrow neoliberal variations, but also for the media class in all its narrow neoliberal variations. It was a sign that the Guardian’s credibility with its own readers is steadily waning.

The talkback columns show the Guardian’s kneejerk belittling of Corbyn has inserted a dangerous seed of doubt in the minds of a proportion of its formerly loyal readers. Many of those hundreds of thousands of leftists who joined the Labour party either to get Corbyn elected or to demonstrate their support afterwards are Guardian readers or potential readers. And the Guardian and Observer ridiculed them and their choice.

Belatedly the two papers are starting to sense their core readership feels betrayed. Vulliamy’s commentary should be seen in that light. It is not a magnanimous gesture by the Observer, or even an indication of its commitment to pluralism. It is one of the early indications of a desperate damage limitation operation. We are likely to see more such “reappraisals” in the coming weeks, as the liberal-left media tries to salvage its image with its core readers.

This may not prove a fatal blow to the Guardian or the Observer but it is a sign of an accelerating trend for the old media generally and the liberal-left media more specifically. Papers like the Guardian and the Observer no longer understand their readerships both because they no longer have exclusive control of their readers’ perceptions of what is true and because the reality – not least, polarising inequality and climate degradation – is becoming too difficult to soft-soap.

Media like the Guardian are tied by a commercial and ideological umbilical cord to a neoliberal order a large swath of their readers are growing restless with or feel downright appalled by.

In 2003 the Observer knowingly suppressed the truth about Iraq and WMD to advance the case for an illegal, “preventive” war, one defined in international law as the supreme war crime. At that time – digitally the equivalent of the Dark Ages compared to now – the paper just about managed to get away with its complicity in a crime against humanity. The Observer never felt the need to make real amends with Vulliamy or the readers it betrayed.

But in the age of a burgeoning new media the Observer and Guardian are discovering that the rules are shifting dangerously under their feet. Corbyn is a loud messenger of that change.


Mafia Don Erdoğan Retaliates for Russian Strike on Family Crime Syndicate

Kurt Nimmo — Infowars Nov 25, 2015

Like a vengeful Mafia don Recep Tayyip Erdoğan shot down a Russian plane and nudged the Middle East a step closer to all-out war.

A few hours after the attack Obama climbed up on his soap box and said Turkey has a right to protect its national sovereignty.

Erdoğan’s attack, however, had nothing to do with sovereignty or airspace. It was retaliation for Russia messing with his family business.

The son of Turkey’s president is accused of making a fortune on the sale of oil stolen by the Islamic State.

“Bilal Erdoğan owns several maritime companies,” writes F. William Engdahl. “He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdoğan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.”

Map of Iraq’s oil fields and areas controlled by the Islamic State.

According to Bilal’s father this pilfering and sale does not carry a penalty under international transportation conventions.

However, according to Gürsel Tekin, the vice-president of the Turkish Republican Peoples’ Party, “Bilal Erdoğan is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.”

Tekin explains Bilal’s maritime company dealing in stolen oil and trading with the Islamic State, BMZ Ltd, is “a family business and president Erdoğan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkish banks.”

The Erdoğan clan is up to its neck in business deals with the head-choppers. Sümeyye Erdoğan, the daughter of the president, operates a “secret hospital camp inside Turkey just over the Syrian border where Turkish army trucks daily bring in scores of wounded ISIS Jihadists to be patched up and sent back to wage the bloody Jihad in Syria, according to the testimony of a nurse who was recruited to work there until it was discovered she was a member of the Alawite branch of Islam, the same as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Erdoğan seems hell-bent on toppling,” writes Engdahl.

In addition to working with a fundamentalist Turkish Muslim sect to train Islamic State fighters and providing logistical support, Erdoğan “organized the pillage of Syria, dismantled all the factories in Aleppo, the economic capital, and stole the machine-tools,” according to Thierry Meyssan. “Similarly, he organized the theft of archeological treasures and set up an international market in Antioch.”

The Russians are threatening to put these Mafia operations out of business and that provided the motivation to shoot down a Russian jet and stir the cauldron that is the Syrian “civil war,” in fact a manufactured proxy war designed to carve up the country and turn it over to a gang of psychopaths who follow a deviant sect of Saudi Wahhabism.


Erdogan’s Dirty Dangerous ISIS Games

F. William Engdahl — New Eastern Outlook Nov 24, 2015

recep_tayyip_erdoganTurkey is a beautiful land, rich in resources, with many highly intelligent and warm people. It also happens to have a President who seems intent on destroying his once-proud nation. More and more details are coming to light revealing that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, variously known as ISIS, IS or Daesh, is being fed and kept alive by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the Turkish President and by his Turkish intelligence service, including MIT, the Turkish CIA. Turkey, as a result of Erdoğan’s pursuit of what some call a Neo-Ottoman Empire fantasies that stretch all the way to China, Syria and Iraq, threatens not only to destroy Turkey but much of the Middle East if he continues on his present path.

In October 2014 US Vice President Joe Biden told a Harvard gathering that Erdoğan’s regime was backing ISIS with “hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons…” Biden later apologized clearly for tactical reasons to get Erdoğan’s permission to use Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base for airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, but the dimensions of Erdoğan’s backing for ISIS since revealed is far, far more than Biden hinted.

ISIS militants were trained by US, Israeli and now it emerges, by Turkish special forces at secret bases in Konya Province inside the Turkish border to Syria, over the past three years. Erdoğan’s involvement in ISIS goes much deeper. At a time when Washington, Saudi Arabia and even Qatar appear to have cut off their support for ISIS, they remaining amazingly durable. The reason appears to be the scale of the backing from Erdoğan and his fellow neo-Ottoman Sunni Islam Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu.

Nice Family Business

The prime source of money feeding ISIS these days is sale of Iraqi oil from the Mosul region oilfields where they maintain a stronghold. The son of Erdoğan it seems is the man who makes the export sales of ISIS-controlled oil possible.

Bilal Erdoğan owns several maritime companies. He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdoğan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.

Gürsel Tekin vice-president of the Turkish Republican Peoples’ Party, CHP, declared in a recent Turkish media interview, “President Erdoğan claims that according to international transportation conventions there is no legal infraction concerning Bilal’s illicit activities and his son is doing an ordinary business with the registered Japanese companies, but in fact Bilal Erdoğan is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.” Tekin adds that Bilal’s maritime company doing the oil trades for ISIS, BMZ Ltd, is “a family business and president Erdoğan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkish banks.”

Sümeyye Erdoğan.

Sümeyye Erdoğan.

In addition to son Bilal’s illegal and lucrative oil trading for ISIS, Sümeyye Erdoğan, the daughter of the Turkish President apparently runs a secret hospital camp inside Turkey just over the Syrian border where Turkish army trucks daily bring in scores of wounded ISIS Jihadists to be patched up and sent back to wage the bloody Jihad in Syria, according to the testimony of a nurse who was recruited to work there until it was discovered she was a member of the Alawite branch of Islam, the same as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Erdoğan seems hell-bent on toppling.

Turkish citizen Ramazan Başol, captured this month by Kurdish People’s Defence Units,YPG, as he attempted to join ISIS from Konya province, told his captors that said he was sent to ISIS by the ‘İsmail Ağa Sect,’ a strict Turkish Islam sect reported to be tied to Recep Erdoğan. Başol said the sect recruits members and provides logistic support to the radical Islamist organization. He added that the Sect gives jihad training in neighborhoods of Konya and sends those trained here to join ISIS gangs in Syria.

According to French geopolitical analyst, Thierry Meyssan, Recep Erdoğan “organised the pillage of Syria, dismantled all the factories in Aleppo, the economic capital, and stole the machine-tools. Similarly, he organised the theft of archeological treasures and set up an international market in Antioch…with the help of General Benoît Puga, Chief of Staff for the Elysée, he organised a false-flag operation intended to provoke the launching of a war by the Atlantic Alliance – the chemical bombing of la Ghoutta in Damascus, in August 2013.

Meyssan claims that the Syria strategy of Erdoğan was initially secretly developed in coordination with former French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé and Erdoğan’s then Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, in 2011, after Juppe won a hesitant Erdoğan to the idea of supporting the attack on traditional Turkish ally Syria in return for a promise of French support for Turkish membership in the EU. France later backed out, leaving Erdoğan to continue the Syrian bloodbath largely on his own using ISIS.

Gen. John R. Allen, an opponent of Obama’s Iran peace strategy, now US diplomatic envoy coordinating the coalition against the Islamic State, exceeded his authorized role after meeting with Erdoğan and “promised to create a « no-fly zone » ninety miles wide, over Syrian territory, along the whole border with Turkey, supposedly intended to help Syrian refugees fleeing from their government, but in reality to apply the « Juppé-Wright plan ». The Turkish Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, revealed US support for the project on the TV channel A Haber by launching a bombing raid against the PKK.” Meyssan adds.

There are never winners in war and Erdoğan’s war against Syria’s Assad demonstrates that in bold. Turkey and the world deserve better. Ahmet Davutoğlu’s famous “Zero Problems With Neighbors” foreign policy has been turned into massive problems with all neighbors due to the foolish ambitions of Erdoğan and his gang.

French comedian Dieudonné sentenced to two months in prison

Henry Samual — Nov 25, 2015

dieudonne meaningA Belgian court has sentenced controversial French comedian Dieudonné to two months in prison for incitement to hatred over alleged racist and anti-Semitic remarks he made during a show in Belgium.

Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, a regular in French courts over similar charges, was also fined €9,000 (£6,300) by the court in the eastern city of Liege over a show he gave there in 2012. He was not present for the verdict.

During the show before 1,000 people in Herstal, a Liege suburb and which was recorded by police, Dieudonné called Hitler a “sweet kid” and a “joyful braggart”.

He also called into question the Nazi gas chambers and described the Talmud as a “s*** book”.

Eric Lemmens, a lawyer for Belgium’s Jewish organisations, said: “All the accusations against Dieudonné were established – both incitement to hatred and hate speech but also Holocaust denial.

“For me this is more than satisfying, this is a major victory,” he added. The comedian was also ordered to publish the ruling in Belgium’s two main national daily newspapers, Le Soir and La Libre Belgique.

Earlier this month the European Court of Human Rights came out against Dieudonné in a separate case, ruling that freedom of speech did not protect “racist and anti-Semitic performances”.

Dieudonné was protesting a fine he received from a French court in 2009 for inviting a Holocaust-denier on stage. He was fined €10,000 for what that court referred to as “racist insults”.

In March, a French court also handed Dieudonné a two months suspended sentence for anti-Semitic remarks after he suggested he appeared to express sympathy with the attacks against satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in Paris, which killed 17.

“I feel like Charlie Coulibaly,” he wrote on Facebook, a play on the slogan “Je suis Charlie” and Amedy Coulibaly, one of the gunmen.

The performer, who made his name in a double act with Jewish comedian Elie Semoun, is infamous for his trademark “quenelle” hand gesture that looks like an inverted Nazi salute but which he insists is merely anti-establishment. It was notably used by Nicolas Anelka, a former West Bromwich Albion striker, who was handed a five-match ban by the FA for making the gesture in 2013.

Dieudonné has appeared several times in French court over racism and anti-Semitism charges. He and his supporters say he merely exercises his right to free speech and to mock anything he sees fit.

Russia Suggests Downed Warplane Was ‘Planned Provocation’

Russia’s foreign minister has suggested that the downing of its bomber by Turkish jets Tuesday resembled a “planned provocation.” But he reiterated that Moscow has no intention of fighting a war with Turkey over the incident.

“We have serious doubts that it was an unpremeditated act. It’s very similar to a planned provocation,” Lavrov said during a news conference in Moscow today.

Asked whether he thought the incident could escalate into a conflict, Lavrov said, “We do not intend to fight with Turkey; our relationship with the Turkish people has not changed. There are just questions that have arisen for the Turkish government.”

Lavrov made the comments as Russia’s military announced it had recovered the second pilot from the downed bomber

Speaking at a televised briefing, Vladimir Putin confirmed the pilot, who was the plane’s navigator, had been rescued.

Russia’s defense minister earlier told a briefing that the man, Konstantin Murakhtin, had been found after an all-night search, during which one rescue helicopter was downed by rebels and a Russian marine killed. He is now “alive and well’ at Russian airbase in Syria, the ministry said.

The plane’s other pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, was killed by rebels after he ejected, according to Russian defense officials. Putin said Peshkov will be awarded the Gold Star of the Hero of Russia medal, one of Russia’s highest military honors.

Simultaneously, Russia’s defense ministry announced it would be deploying advanced anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria, close to where the incident happened to prevent further attacks of its planes conducting strikes there.

The men’s Su-24 jet was brought down by Turkish fighters in the northern mountains of Syria’s Latakia province, close to the border with Turkey, where it had been bombing Syrian rebel militants. Turkey has insisted the plane was destroyed because it violated Turkish airspace, a claim Russia has disputed.

The shooting down — the first of a Russian plane by a NATO aircraft since the 1950 s– has prompted a diplomatic crisis between Russia and Turkey and added yet another tangle to the intractable Syrian conflict.

Russia has been supporting the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad with an air campaign for the past two months. Turkey, which is deeply opposed to Assad, has been supporting rebel groups with arms and money.

Putin called the downing of the plane a “stab in the back” and has accused Turkey of supporting terrorism, calling it an “accomplice of terrorists.” The incident has caused a sharp breach in Russian-Turkish relations, with Russia’s foreign ministry recommending Russian citizens stop visiting Turkey and most major tour operators halting sales of trips there.

Turkey has defended its actions, insisting it had given the Russian plane multiple warnings and that it had crossed over a mile into Turkish territory. But Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said this morning his country would not escalate the situation

Donna is a minority woman but she is not Nia-Malika Henderson. Click to enlarge

The fact that the mass media is nothing but mind control was driven home Tuesday when I got a call from “Donna.”
Donna had enjoyed brief notoriety on the cable news scene when she promoted Neo con causes, i.e., war anywhere and Islamophobia. However, when she realized she was selling her soul, she took a public stand against the Illuminati. Immediately, her PR company lost a lot of business and mysterious roadblocks appeared in a bitter divorce and custody battle she is fighting.
Tuesday Donna was baffled. CNN had approached her anew to give a woman’s view of Planned Parenthood in light of the recent scandal. She wrote a script which examined pros and cons. No, the producer told her. He just wanted the pros.
Donna’s dilemma was twofold.
1. Should she “make nice” with her erstwhile allies and hope that her trespasses would be forgiven, her business would again flourish, and miraculously she would have access to her children?
2. Why was CNN calling her again? Surely they knew about her public stand against the NWO? She is all over the internet. Even if she did promote Planned Parenthood, didn’t they know her heart was not in it?
I asked if CNN paid a fee for these appearances. Not directly, Donna replied. But after she did their bidding, mysterious clients appeared with large advances. She said this method of payment provided a kind of deniability.

The Sukhoi Su-25 pilot was killed after Turkish backed militants opened fire on him as he descended by parachute. However, the plane’s navigator is alive having been rescued by Syrian and Russian Special Forces.
In addition Russian is to boost its military presence in Syria and the eastern Mediterranean. A top official with the the Russian General Staff announced on Tuesday that the missile cruiser Moskva will be stationed off Syria’s western Latakia province:
“We warn that every target posing a potential threat will be destroyed,” lieutenant general Sergey Rudskoy said.
He added that contrary to Ankara’s claims, the Turkish fighters made no attempt to contact the Russian plane before opening fire.
In the wake of the downing of the Su-24 Russian spokesmen announced the deployment of the S-400 air defence system to Syria and said that all future Russian flights in Syrian airspace, including bombers, would be accompanied by fighters.

Navigator Rescued After Warplane Was Shot Down, Russia Says

Neil MacFarqhar — New York Times Nov 25, 2015

The navigator of the warplane shot down along the Turkey-Syria border is alive and has been rescued by Syrian and Russian special forces, the Russian minister of defense said on Wednesday.

The pilot of the Sukhoi Su-24 fighter jet was killed on Tuesday by ground fire from Syrian insurgents shooting at him as his parachute descended, the Defense Ministry has confirmed. The navigator of the plane had also been reported dead by Syrian sources on the ground, though the Russian government had not confirmed that.

Sergei K. Shoigu, the Russian defense minister, told a staff meeting that the Russian navigator was now on the Hmeimim air base outside Latakia, Syria, after an overnight operation to rescue him that lasted 12 hours.

Some Thoughts on the Ineffable and the Exercise of Reason and Logic

Visible Origami — Nov 25, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Maya the spider spins her dream web, woven out of darkness and false light. The Dream Web is magnetic and our Karma is like iron filings that hang suspended in our atmosphere like dust motes. There are charged particles that are attracted to specific details in the web. It varies with everyone. Are Karma and Fate interchangeable terms for the same thing? There are many tales about Kismet in the Sufi tradition. There are many tales about Karma in the Hindu and Buddhist tradition.
Here is an interesting and thoroughly uniformed statement made at a forum where there was a question as to whether Muslims believe in Karma; “Muslims do not believe in Karma/Superstitions/Magic. We only believe in Destiny.” This is rather humorous if you give some thought to it. What have Superstitions and Magic got to do with Karma and… how is Destiny not a expression of Karma and therefore proof of the existence of Karma? What does it mean if conditions and events are destined? It means there is some kind of cause in play. What would that cause be? Since destinies are so various and remarkably dissimilar in many ways, logically, it has to mean there are specific differences in prior behavior somewhere and where is that somewhere? In what place did these prior events happen? Surely they happened on the same plane where the destiny is being effected. Or is there some other system that makes no sense that is the cause of it all? Look at the symmetry in the wider universe and tell me that a similar symmetry does not exist everywhere.
Of course, if you have no symmetry because your nature has been hijacked by the unnatural then this won’t make sense to you. What do you believe is real or unreal? Your definitions define you. Maybe it would help if I explain how I have come to my own conclusions and beliefs. I test everything to see if it works and if it is valid when compared against the truth within me. If there is resonance then the sympathetic strings vibrate within. It is a kind of psychic smell test. It is one of those things where it feels right even though you have no immediate certainty, absent the ongoing experience of existence wherein whatever it is that one has under consideration, continues to prove out in application. This is the manner in which any legitimate philosopher and meta-physician comes to their conclusions.
Never assume anything because even if you are generally correct in what you believe, there are elements missing that are critical to the totality of your beliefs and may also account for an intensification and strengthening of your faith. Of course, without Love as the directing and most powerful drive, one is not going to come into the deeper stages of the quest. Only Love is sufficient to the necessities of the task, given the challenges that come on the way. More importantly, the Love and the devotion it inspires has more to do with drawing the attention and grace of the ineffable and it has been said by many wiser minds at different times that one does not attain to an interactive relationship with the divine under your own steam, given that all steam is generated by the ineffable to begin with and is then defined by our intentions. Intention is all important and one finds reference to this in many Buddhist texts and the scriptures of other faiths as well.
In the teachings of any legitimate religion, what is important gets said more than once and in more than one way. These elements are critical to one’s understanding and the teachings of Jesus the Christ should be kept in mind where he says that there is one series of truths for the common mind and another for the disciples. This latter is to be diligently sought after and comes by revelation. Apparently, in most cases the ground has to be prepared over the course of time, as one is engaged in those trials by which ones sincerity is proven out. Cases like that of Paul on the road to Damascus are not the usual event. Of course, I don’t know if this happened as it is said to have happened. I have absolute faith that Jesus Christ appears to certain individuals and it is a valid certainty when one considers that Jesus was a man but Christ is a station and everyone who attains to it meets Jesus, which shouldn’t be that difficult for Jesus given how few in any generation achieves this state of awareness.
On the matter of Paul, I have no idea what was or what was not. I do take exception to many things he said. It is my belief approaching certainty that the tales of any great master omit more than they include and are often filled with made up details and some exaggeration, although I consider anything to be possible when it comes to masters, so I am not referring to exaggeration in that regard. One who has attained to a certain level of consciousness has the ineffable resident within and is capable of anything without limitation. That they do not go around doing all kinds of miraculous things all the time is a testimony to their character. The fact is that they do go around doing miraculous things all the time, they are simply, more generally done within the hearts and minds of those who gather and over the longer course of time in those who read their works, see films or whatever media there might be.
God is everywhere around and within us. God is, in some ways like the wind. Everywhere in the world the air is stirred by some degree of invisible breath. We never see it though. We only see that which is stirred by the wind. Let us look at human affairs. There is that which the ineffable inspires and that which the ineffable permits. You can well ask why certain things are permitted and I will say, Karma but Karma, like the wind… is often not seen at its point of origin, in consideration of the effect that the origin drives. Sometimes Karma is more immediate and sometimes it moves through following lives. We see the leaves that tremble and we see leaves fall. We don’t see what causes it. There is so much we do not see but we base all of our beliefs on what is real on the idea that we aren’t missing anything. That is a kind of arrogance we see every day in people’s opinions on the meaning of events and the moral implications taken from whatever level of informed or uniformed morality they possess.
The almighty as we have been told, moves in mysterious ways. We might also say that the impact of the almighty on human events is often unseen. In times of Materialism, we collectively place far more emphasis on the seen as opposed to the unseen and the larger generalization on what is unseen are often misleading when not outright fabrications, indulged in by those who seek to manipulate the beliefs of the masses through promoting anthropomorphism, or whatever skewered ideas allow for catechisms, dogmas and cants that are approved for public mind control, which accounts for all the horrible things done in the name of religion.
Look, with rare exception, all political and fundamentalist religious systems are created by those who profit off of them. The same applies to economic systems and in every case as they apply to the basic understanding of any of these, one idea of the meaning of any of them is promoted through official vehicles and the real meaning is concealed because of the routine perversion of the principles over and over and over again.
We’ve all heard the name of Martin Luther but I will wager that most have read little about his life; the dramatic moments in it, the things he did and said and who he considered to be the enemies of humanity and Christianity. It is interesting to note that his ideas are shared by many another and that to this very day. When certain themes occur and reoccur over the course of hundreds and even thousands of years, there has to be a reason for it. Of course, in this time of Political Correctness, which is another pernicious by product of Materialism, all kinds of arguments are given for the belief in all manner of absurdities and these are promoted by those who benefit from the belief in these absurdities. Here we must keep in mind that the demonic authorities from the Infernal Kingdom most specifically promote discord and disorder. This is a consistent theme in the behavior of these entities, along with deception and the promotion of negative qualities in humanity. Keeping this in mind and noting the behavior of those who are in positions of leadership on the world stage, it is no reach to imagine who inspires their behavior.
Most of what needs to be seen is pretty clear but it is only as clear as the minds which consider any of it. What is it that clouds and confuses the mind of humanity? Once again, should you focus on things already said here and on what you have learned by observation about existence, it requires no great reach of the imagination.
May the ineffable inspire and motivate you in every positive way.

Turkey shot down Russian jet in Syrian airspace: Source

CNBC and Reuters — Nov 25, 2015

An Su-24m takes off from Hmeymim Airbase outside the Syrian port city of Latakia

The United States believes that the Russian jet shot down by Turkey on Tuesday was hit inside Syrian airspace after a brief incursion into Turkish airspace, a U.S. official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The official said that assessment was based on detection of the heat signature of the jet.

The information emerged as the White House said that U.S. President Barack Obama and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone on Tuesday about the need to de-escalate tensions with Russia.

Obama expressed “U.S. and NATO support for Turkey’s right to defend its sovereignty,” the White House said in a statement.

“The leaders agreed on the importance of de-escalating the situation and pursuing arrangements to ensure that such incidents do not happen again,” the statement said.

.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also appealed to Turkey and Russia to reduce tensions.

Ban hopes “a credible and thorough review will clarify the events and help prevent future recurrences,” U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. “He urges all those who are engaged in military activities in Syria, especially air campaigns, to maximize operational measures to avoid unintended consequences,” Dujarric said.

Turkey shot down the Russian warplane near the Syrian border, saying the jet had violated its air space, in one of the most serious publicly acknowledged clashes between a NATO member country and Russia for half a century.

But Russian President Vladimir Putin said the plane had been attacked when it was 1 km (0.62 mile) inside Syria and warned of “serious consequences” for what he termed a stab in the back administered by “the accomplices of terrorists”.

“We will never tolerate such crimes like the one committed today,” Putin said.

Westerners Should “Be Very Afraid” of Friday’s Chinese Yuan-IMF Decision

Money Morning Staff Reports — Nov 17, 2015

yuan-dollar-balanceChina’s yuan was just awarded reserve currency status. This was the precise event former Wall Street banker Evander Smart warned of in September:

“If you live in the West, and this goes down, be afraid, be very afraid,” Smart wrote in an op-ed for “future of money” site Coin Telegraph on Sept. 10. “The world is starting to prepare for life without the dollar and westerners should, too!”

On Friday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recommended the yuan, also known as the renminbi, to be included in its $280 billion basket of currency reserves known as Special Drawing Rights (SDR). The Chinese yuan-IMF decision places the currency alongside the U.S. dollar, the Japanese yen, the British pound, and the euro.

Inclusion becomes official at the end of the month on Nov. 30, according to French news service AFP.

As an SDR world reserve currency, the Chinese yuan is now legitimized as a serious competitor to the U.S. dollar.

Here’s what you need to know…

Chinese Yuan-IMF Decision: Times Are Changing for the Dollar

The U.S. dollar’s favored status as a world reserve currency has long churned up demand – as a global benchmark, other countries use the USD for international trade. The effect has propped up the dollar.

But increasingly there’s another global currency option for trade – the yuan.

“Times have changed, and the shoe is on the other foot. America – land of perpetual warfare – is swimming in $18 trillion in national debt,” Smart wrote. “The U.S. owes almost $3 trillion to just Japan and China alone as it prints about $696 million per day. According to the IMF or the world’s loan shark, China has even passed the U.S. as the world’s largest economy.”

Smart continues, “Over the last several years, many countries, especially in East Asia, have stopped using the U.S. dollar for trading purposes. These are called ‘bilateral trade agreements,’ and they’re becoming as popular as cat videos on YouTube.”

He notes that more and more, countries are instead opting for the Chinese yuan…

SPECTRE (2015): Tentacles of the All-Seeing Surveillance Octopus

Jay Dyer — Jay’s Analysis Nov 17, 2015

Spectre poster. Click to enlarge

Spectre poster. Click to enlarge

Appearing to conclude the Daniel Craig 007 reboots, SPECTRE has not just premiered to a no. 1 global status, but as could be expected, also gave quite a few insights into the nature of real geopolitics and espionage that only the Bond films can do.  Here at JaysAnalysis, I had a suspicion a year ago this is what we would see with SPECTRE, particularly given the so-called “leak” of the plot as part of the Sony hacking scandal that was more accurately described as a Rand-corporation designed marketing scheme, connected with the staged drama of Seth Rogan and James Franco’s release of The Interview.  In fact, The Interview was not an offense to the rogue nation-state of North Korea, quite the contrary: I have long argued North Korea is a fake state – a complete CIA puppet villain, with no ICBM “space program,” and certainly no real nuclear threat.

Concerning the SPECTRE/Interview Psy Op, analyst Patrick Henningsen commented:

“At last, an international cause that Hollywood can finally rally around – together in solidarity! It’s what we all have secretly wished for –  that Team America’s plot line has finally gone operational.  If this latest crisis demonstrates anything at all, it shows how Hollywood and North Korea have more in common than they realize – both are really big on theatrics, but not very big on substance.

What George Clooney might not know, and what history shows, is that North Korea’s bark is much worse than its bite. So in terms of a national security threat to the US, it’s somewhere between nil and nonexistent.

UNIT 121

If Washington is to be believed, then this must be evidence of North Korea’s notorious ‘Unit 121’ hacker layer.

Most US media outlets managed to spin the Sony hack into a piece of national security propaganda – stoking fears of a “mysterious” North Korean hacking group, ‘Unit 121′. No surprise then that the charge originates from the US government itself, whose own General Bureau of Reconnaissance “suspects” the North Koreans were behind the attack on Sony. If you believe FOX’s Shepard Smith, you’d think that this was something along the lines of SPECTRE or SMERSH, but it’s more likely just another exercise in creativity from CIA’s propaganda desk in Seoul, alongside other imaginary figments, dreamed-up by the State Department like the ‘feared’ Khorosan Group. If this were a creative writing class, they’d all get an A+, but sadly it’s not.”

Indeed, even The Guardian has commented on the similarities of the SPECTRE plot with the supposed leaks of Edward Snowden regarding the NSA spying apparatus, yet keep in mind that I have questioned the Snowden heroics, as well as the fact that GCHQ was surveilling the population and spying long before there was any NSA in the US.   Furthermore, the real NSA is not some government building, but in fact the largest tech corporations, like Google and Apple.  The notion that the NSA is a government-run entity which has gotten out of hand from public oversight is preposterous, as the private globocorps have been doing the real dirty data collecting for decades (and continue to do so, apart from Snowden’s so-called “leaks”).   All of this will be relevant, as we will see, in reference to the plot of Sam Mendes’ latest installment of 007’s adventures, SPECTRE.

007 stalks Sciarra, babe in hand, as he learns of the terror plots of the “Pale King,” the Lord of the Dead

007 stalks Sciarra, babe in hand, as he learns of the terror plots of the “Pale King,” the Lord of the Dead

With SPECTRE, we open with a long, single shot of Bond disguised in skeleton costume amidst the celebratory festivities of Dia de Los Muertos in Mexico City, smoothly striding through the streets with babe on arm, stalking the movements of a certain Sciarra.  The scenery elicits numerous demonic elements, including devil masks, effigies, corpses, and Santa Muerte.  Santa Muerte is the cartel-connected syncretistic cult often associated with MS-13 that analysts have noted operate both human trafficking and drug corridors.  Some have even argued the U.S. intelligence establishment is in bed with certain select cartels, with intent of controlling the black markets, while only “busting” operations of rival cartels not in bed with the Atlanticists.  We even saw elements of this in the Fast and Furious arms scandal, as well as in the recent film Sicario, where FBI agents discover their attache role in a border operation is cover for a deeper CIA black op of taking out a rival cartel.

In Mexico City, 007 gets hints of Sciarra’s involvement with the cartel underworld as the plan to bomb a professional soccer match is planned.  007 determines to take out the conspirators, ending up in an impressive helicopter battle with an escaping Sciarra.  Eliminating Sciarra at the behest of a secret, posthumous message from M (Dame Judi Dench), the only information Bond recovers is knowledge of a planned soccer match attack, and Sciarra’s curious Octopus ring.  Also worth noting is the room 007 uses to work his mojo on the Mexican beauty before this operation just happens to be Room 327 (or 237), which echoes the speculative documentary about the secret messages in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.  While this is admittedly speculative, there is a connection between the real meaning of the “secret space program” I recently lectured on, Room 237 and Jay Weidner’s work, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the present film, SPECTRE.

Tentacles of the octopus.

Tentacles of the octopus.

“The dead are alive,” the opening text of the film displays, and as the narrative progresses, we discover the meaning of this clue to be the same theme of the recent Mission Impossible installment, Rogue Nation, that the members of the (variously titled in most spy franchises), Syndicate, Cabal, SMERSH, MAD, SPECTRE, etc., tend to be ghosts.  In the spy world, a ghost is a spook, and spooks are specters, who appear to be dead.  As I have covered in many reviews and interviews, a great way to become a ghost is to fake your death and the CIA has a long history of doing this, as well as Soviet intelligence.


NRO patch with octopus

The iconic opening montage for SPECTRE hearkens to the prior 3 Craig Bonds, with all the villains of Bond’s past appearing in shattered glass fragmentation, emblematic of the psyche and the assassin’s traumatic past.  From Vesper Lynd to Mr. White, 007’s rabbit hole leads to the enigmatic cartel organization SPECTRE, symbolized by the octopus whose tentacles seemingly reach everywhere, even into Bond himself, as the source of all his ills.

Encircling the montage babes in a strange tentacle-porn imagery, the octopus morphs into an All-Seeing Eye that here will represent the panopticon surveillance state at the heart of the film’s narrative.  Furthering transforming, the eye becomes a massive octopus with nine eyes, later explained in the film to be the “9 Eyes” of a rough equivalent of the G8 nations (here G-9) that offer their sovereignty up to the promise of security from CNS, the new UK version of the NSA intent on integrating mass surveillance from the most powerful nations.  (Recall that the G6, G8 and G20 are creations of the Atlanticists and the Royal Society.)


Bond babe

Promising to prevent all future terror attacks and shut down all dated, dinosaur humint programs, the “00” licensed to kill program is also axed, resulting in the predictably rogue 007.   Injected with SmartBlood (yes, nanotech SmartBlood), the outdated tech wizardy of the implantable chip Bond received in Casino Royale is replaced with its newer transhumanist equivalent.  Tracked and traced globally, 007 is in debt to Q to keep his location secret as 007 seeks the answer to Sciarra’s backers in Rome.   After seducing and romancing Sciarra’s widow (a youthful looking Monica Bellucci), Bond sneaks his way into the elite SPECTRE board meeting that recalls Bill Harford’s (Tom Cruise) out-of-place attendance at the Eyes Wide Shut ritual.


Bond sneaks into “Illuminati” meeting

Known immediately by the mysterious head of SPECTRE, Bond is called out as if he were intentionally led to the meeting (like Bill Harford) and subsequently chased from the premises.  The location of SPECTRE in Rome is curious, as if this were some underground fascist cabal of unknown mobsters and enigmatic Third World and Far Eastern villainy gathered in the heart of global Catholicism.  Could this reference P-2 and the infamous associations with Operation Gladio and the terror cells of the Cold War stay-behind units that I argue are the model for the recent waves of Euro-terror (including the Paris attacks)?   Interestingly the most striking example of predictive programming in the film’s plot is the revelation that global terror is being orchestrated by a single shadow cabal.    This cabal is also intent on bombing nation states behind a façade of radicalism that do not go along with the joint intelligence apparatus being erected by the private “space program” of our film’s super villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.   As SPECTRE manages to appoint its Number 2 (“C,” played by Andrew Scott) as head of the new CNS surveillance initiative, the screenplay subtly refers to the plan as the culmination of the “new world order.”


Blofeld’s private space program in ‘You only live twice’

In fact, while many perceptive film-goers probably caught the numerous references to the Connery and Moore-era installments, the most interesting aspect of Blofeld’s secret base in the desert of Morocco is its observatory and aerospace features.  Once again, as with Diamonds and Forever and Moonraker, the private space program has an ulterior motive than noble advancement of scientific  knowledge.  Here, as with old school Blofeld plots, we learn his aims are not even a Star Wars Defense Initiative, but the backdoor PROMIS Octopus technology that even Wired magazine has covered as relating to the NSA’s ability to hack into most tech.   And this is precisely what Blofeld is after – a total panopticon surveillance apparatus that is erected as a result of the engineering of global terror attacks, run by a private, unknown command center.   This is real, and not only that, it is the ultimate plan of the new world order, as I have argued in numerous articles the last 5 years.  Researcher and author Daniel Estulin has even highlighted this notion in his appropriately titled book, The Octopus Deception.


Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux) in a train scene reminiscent of From Russia with Love.

Curiously, while eavesdropping on the SPECTRE meeting, 007 finds that the planning group recalls something along Bilderberg lines, where decisions are made concerning human trafficking, the management of various vices like prostitution (using a large number of refugee/migrant women), the counterfeiting of pharmaceuticals (as if BigPharma itself isn’t a tentacle of the real SPECTRE) and the planning of a bombing in South Africa to terrorize the populace into signing onto the global privatized surveillance plan.   Throughout, the presentation of MI6 is as the guardian of western liberty and “democracy,” while the more eastern and fascist elements of SPECTRE are portrayed as enemies of the people.  Never tiring of playing out this propaganda, the Cold War subterfuge of the West still banks on its mythology of being a bastion of “freedom” and “liberty,” as if these were nonexistent elsewhere.

This Anglo-centric model is by no means exposed in the film, inasmuch as it is western banking and corporate elites who are the real SPECTRE.   Never tiring of generic sloganeering, western propaganda and marketing hasn’t altered one iota since Bernays.  Moreover, the western narrative of libertarian Enlightenment freedoms ring ever more hollow in our days as it becomes increasingly evident how absurd this phraseology is, where the supposed “free” West becomes a mutant version of Brave New Disney World, all under the designs of the very establishment that professes empty mantras of “freedom.”  Freedom means the freedom to choose Coke or Pepsi, sterilization through GMOs or cancer through euthanasia – all choice delicacies of the decadent Atlanticist elites.


Seeking the supposed dead Franz Oberhauser, Bond finds his own foster-brother to be the source of his ills, as the darkest secret of 007 is his own background – he was raised as an orphan by Blofeld’s father.  Blofeld , full of ressentiment, decides to work out his daddy issues through (as you can imagine) torturing Bond by strapping him down and drilling his skull for a full-scale MKULTRA style mind-wipe.   While SmartBlood may or may not be a reality, the targeting of certain areas of the brain to erase memories and motor functions is very real.  DARPA has openly discussed such projects many times under the guise of “treating addictions” or “traumas” and PTSD.   DARPA wants to help you, just like Pine Gap exists to “research space” and not mass surveillance, just like SETI exists to send space emails to aliens with X dollar satellites, not mass surveillance (my own particular speculation).


Facing Blofeld, Bond learns the secret base is the site of a meteor crater where the oldest meteor is Ernst’s private property.  Likening himself to the obsidian Kaaba-like stone, Blofeld explains the meteor is an allegory for his own secret space surveillance system that will utilize the information from all surveillance satellites, CCTVs and tech gadgets globally.  This is SPECTRE’s big secret, erecting the global surveillance panopticon around staged terror events, erecting a total information grid that will allow for the blackmail of all.  Does this sound familiar?  Is it possible that in the real-world globo-terror is also orchestrated precisely for this purpose?   That is the thesis of JaysAnalysis, and hopefully it is becoming increasingly evident this is so, as more and more films begin to tell us this very story.

Most strikingly, as I argued in my Casino Royale analysis, the 007 reboots seem to continually hearken to clues about 9/11, such as the pre-9/11 airline stock put options.  From there, we move to Quantum of Solace exposing the Green Agenda and the left-right dialectic, to Skyfall showing us the fact that so-called cyber-terrorists are the system itself (as per the similarities of the plot of Skyfall with the Sony “hacking” scandal), and in SPECTRE yet another false flag references to 9/11 is hinted at in the “inside job” bombing of MI6 through a massive controlled demolition.  Now, whatever means you think took down the twin towers (and building 7), whether controlled explosive charges or exotic weaponry, it certainly was not jet fuel.

skyfall explosion mi6 url

It certainly was some form of controlled demolition, as the towers were demolished, and this was controlled by some artifice other than “Al Qaeda.”  Curiously, this is exactly what Blofeld does when he gains access to MI6 through placing his mole at the head of the CNS.   Isn’t it interesting that the first thing Blofeld does is lure 007 into the MI6 tower, intending on demolishing him and the old world with?   007 escapes, of course, but I would venture to say the film is not telling us about the demolition of MI6 headquarters, but the destruction of some other tower by SPECTRE.


Russian air strikes in Syria ‘have killed 97 children’, monitoring group says

Russia has killed 403 civilians, among them 97 children, during its air strikes in Syria, according to figures from a monitoring group.

The Russian president Vladimir Putin has stepped up his country’s air campaign in Syria in recent weeks, targeting anti-government rebels as well Islamist fighters with Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra.

But the figures from the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights highlight the considerable civilian toll – and raise questions about the effectiveness of the strikes.

Russia began its air campaign in Syria on 30 September.

The campaign has intensified following the downing of a Russian passenger jet in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, thought to have been carried out by Islamic State.

All 224 people on board the flight were killed.

Rami Abdulrahman at work

Rami Abdulrahman at work

The above report appeared two days ago in the Independent. At the time we thought this will likely go without confirmation or corroboration and sure enough absolutely nothing has appeared since to substantiate it.
We should not be surprised though. After all the above is based on information from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Coventry based media outlet run by one man, Rami Abdulrahman.
By his own admission the Syrian born Abdulrahman has not been back to his homeland in nearly two decades. Yet he is regularly quoted by the corporate media as some sort of authority on the situation in Syria. Even though his claims are routinely uncorroborated, like the one above.
In effect Abdulrahman is acting as a disinformation agent, distributing reports that cast the Assad regime in a negative light and which are carried without question or corroboration by the corporate media.
Rather than have paid agents in the offices of major media organisations, those who are shaping Western policy over Syria are covertly using the likes of SOHR to mould Western public opinion. In effect making the corporate media in all its guises little more than distribution outlets for disinformation crafted by Western intelligence. Ed.

A Russian pilot whose plane was shot down by Turkey was dead upon landing, according to a spokesman for the rebel group that captured him.

Jahed Ahmad, of the 10th Brigade in the Coast, said the plane’s two Russian crew members tried to land in their parachutes in Syrian government-held areas after they ejected, but came under fire from members of his group.

He added that rebels shot one of the pilots, who landed dead on the ground. The fate of the second pilot was not immediately known.

The group released a video showing gunmen standing around a blond pilot who had bruises on his face and appeared dead.

A voice on the video is heard saying ‘a Russian pilot’, while another says: ‘The 10th Division has captured a Russian pilot. God is greatest.’

Turkey said the plane had ignored repeated warnings, while Russia denied that the plane crossed the Syrian border into Turkish skies.

Vladimir Putin said that the action was a ‘stab in the back’ from Turkey.

The Russian defence ministry said: ‘We are looking into the circumstances of the crash of the Russian jet.

‘The Ministry of Defence would like to stress that the plane was over the Syrian territory throughout the flight.’


Russia said the Su-24 was downed by artillery fire, but Turkey claimed that its F-16s fired on the Russian plane after it ignored several warnings.
The ministry said the pilots parachuted but added that Moscow had no further contact with them.

A Turkish military statement said the plane entered Turkish airspace over the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province.

‘On November 24 2015 at around 9.20am, a plane whose nationality is not known violated the Turkish airspace despite several warnings (10 times within five minutes) in the area of Yayladagi, Hatary,’ the military said before the plane’s nationality was confirmed.

‘Two F-16 planes on aerial patrol duty in the area intervened against the plane in question in accordance with the rules of engagement at 9.24am.’

Turkey’s foreign ministry summoned the Russian ambassador on Friday demanding that Russia cease operations in Syria targeting Turkmen villages, saying the Russian actions did not ‘constitute a fight against terrorism’ but the bombing of civilians.

Ambassador Andrey Karlov was warned during the meeting that the Russian operations could lead to serious consequences, the ministry said.

Nato said its ruling council will hold an emergency meeting over the incident later on Tuesday, at Turkey’s request.

The North Atlantic Council (NAC), composed of ambassadors from the United States and Nato’s 27 other member countries, will convene at 3pm UK time.

An official said ‘the aim of this extraordinary NAC meeting is for Turkey to inform allies about the downing of a Russian airplane’.

The NAC accused Russia of ‘irresponsible behaviour’ on October 5 following two earlier Russian violations of Turkish airspace reported by Turkey, and sternly warned Moscow it was courting ‘extreme danger’ by sending its war planes into the skies of an alliance member country.
