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

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

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

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

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

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

Movie Analysis

The Workers

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

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

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

The Thinker s

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

 Joh Fredersen, the Demi-God

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

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

Maria

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rotwang

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

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

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

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

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

 Metropolis themes are also very prevalent in fashion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Which is kind of reminiscent of this music video ending.

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

 The Moral of the Story

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

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

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

Analogies Between Metropolis and Today’s Pop Culture

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

In Conclusion

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

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

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

Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

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

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

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

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

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

George Soros and His Kind are Evil, Mass Murdering Monsters

Smoking Mirrors — Oct 25, 2014

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
You got all kinds of evil running loose in these times. By definition, these are evil times, being as it is the Kali Yuga. The very worst of us profit without reserve and the best of us are hammered into the pavement. There’s supposed to be some kind of justice in this but… those of us who are within the constraints of single lifetimes and lacking the panorama view of the realized, are hard pressed to see it. It’s there somewhere. Of course, I’m speaking only for those of us that believe in something. For those of us that believe in nothing, except ones own blind, naked ignorance, the appearance of justice is nowhere to be seen. There’s one thing we can certainly presume is true and that is that we will find out at some point, even if… in the cases of those who believe nothing, they find nothing. It might be that that is how it works; to each according to what they do or do not believe.
When one studies the case histories of after death experiences, there is a recurrent theme that is somewhat telling; unless one believes, as do no small number that all belief is an hallucination. This recurrent theme is that when people pass on, what they encounter is always specific to whatever faith they were followers of in life. They saw the icons specific to what they had believed. I don’t know what that means or maybe I do but… that this is the case, well… one can go and look it up for themselves. Anyway… this is not what the posting is about. This is just one of those digressed intros in a pre-crime kind of a way. Let’s take a look at some of the things that are happening today-
The unctious and odious psychopathic hypocrite, George Soros is at it again. As we know, this man has been a venomous liar and a 24 carat sonofabitch for as long as he has been here. He is a mass murderer who has performed murder in various countries around the world. At present he is accusing Vladmir Putin of precisely what his kindred in Israel are guilty of 24/7. Soros is the guy behind the color revolutions. As you probably know, people die in his color revolutions and all of his revolutions take place in those locations where the Zionist run American government wants them to take place. It’s past arguing about that he’s tied in with Robert Kagan and Kagan’s wife, Victoria Neuland, in their vicious banker motivated assault upon a segment of the Ukrainian populace where white phosphorous is being used and mass graves are being discovered and where people have been locked in buildings and then buried alive. This is all true. This is past doubt AND people like Soros and Kagan and Neuland and a supporting cast of too many are behind these horrors. They are behind the majority of the world’s ills. Their marching orders come out of the Devil’s throne room country established for that very purpose
This is real. This is obvious but… for some reason it is near impossible for the toxic mass mind to comprehend it. I see it with no difficulty at all and I know others who do too but we are in a sad minority; sad in the knowledge that we are surrounded by blind automatons, on all sides, in the pursuit of material satisfaction and material gain. This is more important to them than every honorable thing, than the urgings of their conscience, or any good and decent thing.
As far as I understand the workings of Mr. Apocalypse, he comes on soft and suave and those so touched early are given the benefit of seeing, which, translates into stations of security of some kind, or so I am given to understand. Once he has gone as far as he can with the soft and suave methodology, he ups the intensity and gradually takes off the gloves and continues to up the intensity until, no matter how stupid or encased in the frozen amber of denial you may be, you get reached. I say this to hopefully inspire hope in all of the hearts like mine that are daily hammered by the demon vibes from ugly town. It is EASY to see WHY they took control of the mass media because ANY journalist with a conscience, ANY conscientious owner of print or electronic media would by decree of their humanity expose these creatures. These creatures are mass murderers. They are guilty of crimes of such a magnitude that it beggars the imagination to come up with a fitting punishment. All that seems fitting is the deepest circles of Hell. I don’t know what’s down there but that would at least do for starters.
These fiends have mightily profited from their lifetimes of crime. Observe the case of Kissinger and, of course, those already named and so many others whose names we are familiar with. Yes, let me keep referring back to those already mentioned. Let us keep them front and center in this posting. There can be no doubt that Soros is a major cheerleader for the pending Third World War. All he lacks for authenticity is a cheerleader outfit; an outfit designed to scare even the older children on Halloween. Soros reminds me of the clown in Stephen King’s “IT”. He’s worse than that of course and many, many times worse than that other clown, John Wayne Gacy. Gacy only killed about 40 young boys AFTER having his way with them sexually. Soros has done far worse but there he waves like a blood soaked flag of immeasurable shame, high above the world he torments. He is named a philanthropist. If he is a philanthropist then Joseph Stalin was the Sweetheart of the Rodeo.
Of interest and probably connected, since all the plots of these world shakers interconnect, is the continually increasing profile of Fast Eddie Snowden. Now… of course, I can not know definitively that Snowden is a tool but what I do know is that Israel did 9/11 and I know that Israel has done all kinds of abominable things and who would know more about that than Snowden’s former employers? We are led to believe that Snowden had access to all kinds of top secret things and ONE WOULD THINK he would know who did 9/11. ONE WOULD THINK that would be one of the things anyone would want to know who had access to direct links… yet… yet? We hear not a word about this and strangely… we hear not a word from those other celebrated whistleblowers. We hear pretty much nothing about Israel from any of them. Why is that? What does it suggest that this does not happen, that mention is not made? Certainly it is puzzling. Why do we not hear about intelligence information having to do with Soros?
Yes… there is a blanket of suppression operative pretty much everywhere except in those places where people like us stick our heads up out of the gopher hole and make a little unamplified noise that might be enough to make the nearest neighbors call the cops but not much else. Still… the internet is a kind of coconut telegraph and sooner or later everybody is going to hear it and why? Because Mr. Apocalypse says so.
It’s no big surprise who is behind all the economic turmoil as well as the majorities of all of the wars. I found this posted at the top of whatreallyhappened today; “The few who can understand the system (check money and credits, will either be so interested in it’s profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no oppositions from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” — Rothschild Brothers of London and then there’s this “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.” Gutle Schnaper-Turtle Rothschild
One need not be a world class intellect to get what’s what about what’s what; to understand the concentrated focus of utter depravity on the part of this small group of merciless monsters in pursuit of nothing more than material profit, except of course for the part that has to do with the service and worship of their infernal master.
These things need to be said again and again and again. They need to be shouted from the rooftops, in the parks, on sidewalks and in food courts or wherever the spontaneous force of unbridled freedom is joined with courage and conviction, wherever that occurs, should it occur AND… it should occur. We must be quit of these lives of quiet desperation. We have to embrace the challenges of our humanity or we will cease to be human. Even today, all round about us, people are dropping onto all fours in time lapse action as a result of the most driving imperatives of their life. Do not let these be the driving imperatives of your life. Do not let fear put it’s hand on the tiller of your ship of life.
George Soros is a vile, vindictive and evil man and this must be said and it must be realized around the world in every place where there are people so hungry or so crazed that they will take his filthy lucre and betray their fellows and themselves for fucking money. These days, these things are seen as good business sense because we live in a world of moral relativism that has been subtly and not so subtly hammered into our minds by those who snatched up all the mediums for the arts and all the media that reports on them in order to control the definition of what art is, as well as what truth is and what Love is and what anything that can be defined is defined as. Men and women like this MUST be identified for what they are. There must arise from our midst a common courage that permits us to say, “J’accuse!”
If they are not stopped, it will not be all that long before our lives will not be worth living. In many cases that is already true. I’ve said what I had to say.

CIA-Mossad doctor is “infected” with Ebola

Mike King — Rebel News Oct 25, 2014

Craig Allen spencerEbola Mania just got a huge new ‘booster shot’ with the news that one Dr. Craig Allen Spencer has returned to the media capital of the world, infected with the Ebola virus. Dr. Spencer, 33, was placed in isolation at New York’s Bellevue Hospital on Thursday after reporting a fever and gastrointestinal symptoms. He had been treating Ebola patients in Guinea for, get this, Doctors Without Borders - the notorious CIA front run by the mega Globalist-Zionist Bernard Kouchner.

As we had explored in previous rebuttals, African villagers have accused Doctors Without Borders of deliberately spreading Ebola and chased them away with clubs and machetes. Now, Kouchner’s gang of deadly doctors is taking their game to America. Along with the Spencer article comes another front page announcement which reveals that a previously shelved Ebola vaccine is ready for “testing”. Thanks. but no thanks!

trumpWe maintain that one of the objectives, or at least one of the major unintended consequences, of Ebola Mania is for the neo-con warmongers to destroy Obongo the Reluctant Warrior. Along those lines, neo-con billionaire Donald Trump wasted no time in blasting Obongo in a ‘tweet’:

“If this doctor, who so recklessly flew into New York from West Africa,has Ebola,then Obama should apologize to the American people & resign!”

The combed-over con man then added:

“I have been saying for weeks for President Obama to stop the flights from West Africa. So simple, but he refused. A TOTAL incompetent!”

And this:

“I never thought I’d say it in my lifetime, but President Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Sotoro, is a far worse president than Jimmy Carter!”

donald-trumpTrump appeared on Israeli TV to endorse the re-election of Bibi Satanyahu:
“You have a great Prime Minister. There is nobody like him.”

Ebola Mania is absolutely killing Obongo. This infected doctor story now makes it seem as though Obongo is utterly useless and incompetent when it comes to protecting America. Of course, we already know that he is useless and incompetent, but that’s for many other reasons, not for his “mishandling” of an Ebola “crisis” which does not exist.

The Ebola scare is causing frightened single female and girly-man voters to abandon the Democrat Party in droves. Even Blacks have soured on ‘brother’ Obongo and are expected to stay home during next week’s Congressional elections. Between the ISIS scam and the Ebola Hoax, Satanyahu and his gang of warmongers have really stuck it to Obongo, and good.

Lockheed, Pentagon reach $4 billion deal for more F-35 jets

Reuters — Oct 23, 2014

The F-35: expected to become the mainstay of U.S. air power in the decades ahead.

The F-35: expected to become the mainstay of U.S. air power in the decades ahead.

Lockheed Martin Corp and U.S. defense officials have reached agreement on the terms of a contract worth about $4 billion for an eighth batch of 43 F-35 fighter jets, sources familiar with the deal said on Thursday.

The contract will lower the cost of the radar-evading warplane by about 3 percent and includes jets to be built for the U.S. military, Britain and other U.S. allies, according to the sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The cost of the U.S. Air Force model of the plane, which accounts for 27 of the 43 aircraft, will go down by nearly 4 percent, said one of the sources.

Both sides had expected to reach a deal in May or June, but the negotiations slowed after a June 23 engine failure on an Air Force jet grounded the entire F-35 fleet for several weeks.

Lockheed Chief Financial Officer Bruce Tanner told analysts on Tuesday that the company was close to reaching a deal with the Pentagon office that runs the $399 billion weapons program, the costliest arms project.

The Pentagon reached an agreement earlier this month with engine maker Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United Technologies Corp (UTX.N), that lowered the cost of the engines that will power the seventh batch of jets by 4.5 percent.

Pratt expects to conclude an agreement with similar cost reductions for engines to power the eighth set of jets after the Lockheed deal is finalized.

Lockheed, the Pentagon’s No. 1 supplier, delivered the first airplane from the sixth lot of jets on Wednesday. It was the 23rd jet to be delivered this year of 36 that are due.

Lockheed has said it has a plan to deliver all 36 jets that were slated for this year, despite the grounding earlier this summer and some flight restrictions that remain in place.

Lockheed and the Pentagon said they were still finalizing the eighth Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP 8).

“We are encouraged by progress taking place and look forward to an agreement in the near future,” said Lockheed spokesman Mike Rein.

Russia Rising

Lasha Darkmoon — darkmoon.me Oct 24, 2014

Russia is on the way up, America on the way down. Will Washington start a major new war in a desperate attempt to reverse its decline and deal a death blow to its increasingly confident competitor?

Russia rising1

An edited abridgment of Dmitri Orlov’s How to Start a War and Lose An Empire, presented with pictures, captions and comments by Lasha Darkmoon

A year and a half I wrote an essay on how the US chooses to view Russia, titled The Image of the Enemy. I was living in Russia at the time, and, after observing the American anti-Russian rhetoric and the Russian reaction to it, I made some observations that seemed important at the time. It turns out that I managed to spot an important trend, but given the quick pace of developments since then, these observations are now woefully out of date, and so here is an update.
At that time the stakes weren’t very high yet. There was much noise around a fellow named Magnitsky, a corporate lawyer-crook who got caught and died in pretrial custody. He had been holding items for some bigger Western crooks, who were, of course, never apprehended. The Americans chose to treat this as a human rights violation and responded with the so-called “Magnitsky Act” which sanctioned certain Russian individuals who were labeled as human rights violators. Russian legislators responded with the “Dima Yakovlev Bill,” named after a Russian orphan adopted by Americans who killed him by leaving him in a locked car for nine hours. This bill banned American orphan-killing fiends from adopting any more Russian orphans. It all amounted to a silly bit of melodrama.
But what a difference a year and a half has made! Ukraine, which was at that time collapsing at about the same steady pace as it had been ever since its independence two decades ago, is now truly a defunct state, with its economy in free-fall, one region gone and two more in open rebellion, much of the country terrorized by oligarch-funded death squads, and some American-anointed puppets nominally in charge but quaking in their boots about what’s coming next.
Syria and Iraq, which were then at a low simmer, have since erupted into full-blown war, with large parts of both now under the control of the Islamic Caliphate, which was formed with help from the US, was armed with US-made weapons via the Iraqis.
Post-Qaddafi Libya seems to be working on establishing an Islamic Caliphate of its own. Against this backdrop of profound foreign US foreign policy failure, the US recently saw it fit to accuse Russia of having troops “on NATO’s doorstep,” as if this had nothing to do with the fact that NATO has expanded east, all the way to Russia’s borders.

American-Military-Bases-across-the-globe

Unsurprisingly, US–Russia relations have now reached a point where the Russians saw it fit to issue a stern warning: further Western attempts at blackmailing them may result in a nuclear confrontation.
The American behavior throughout this succession of defeats has been remarkably consistent, with the constant element being their flat refusal to deal with reality in any way, shape or form. Just as before, in Syria the Americans are ever looking for moderate, pro-Western Islamists, who want to do what the Americans want (topple the government of Bashar al Assad) but will stop short of going on to destroy all the infidel invaders they can get their hands on. The fact that such moderate, pro-Western Islamists do not seem to exist does not affect American strategy in the region in any way.
Similarly, in Ukraine, the fact that the heavy American investment in “freedom and democracy,” or “open society,” or what have you, has produced a government dominated by fascists and a civil war is, according to the Americans, just some Russian propaganda. Parading under the banner of Hitler’s Ukrainian SS division and anointing Nazi collaborators as national heroes is just not convincing enough for them.
What do these Nazis have to do to prove that they are Nazis, build some ovens and roast some Jews?
Just massacring people by setting fire to a building, as they did in Odessa, or shooting unarmed civilians in the back and tossing them into mass graves, as they did in Donetsk, doesn’t seem to work. The fact that many people have refused to be ruled by Nazi thugs and have successfully resisted them has caused the Americans to label them as “pro-Russian separatists.” This, in turn, was used to blame the troubles in Ukraine on Russia, and to impose sanctions on Russia. The sanctions would be reviewed if Russia were to withdraw its troops from Ukraine.
Trouble is, there are no Russian troops in Ukraine.
Note that this sort of behavior is nothing new. The Americans invaded Afghanistan because the Taleban would not relinquish Osama Bin Laden (who was a CIA operative) unless Americans produced evidence implicating him in 9/11—which did not exist. Americans invaded Iraq because Saddam Hussein would not relinquish his weapons of mass destruction—which did not exist.
They invaded Libya because Muammar Qaddafi would not relinquish official positions—which he did not hold.
They were ready to invade Syria because Bashar al Assad had used chemical weapons against his own people—which he did not do. And now they imposed sanctions on Russia because Russia had destabilized and invaded Ukraine—which it did not do either. (The US did that.)
The sanctions against Russia have an additional sort of unreality to them, because they “boomerang” and hurt the West while giving the Russian government the impetus to do what it wanted to do all along. The sanctions infringed on the rights of a number of Russian businessmen and officials, who promptly yanked their money out of Western banks, pulled their children out of Western schools and universities, and did everything else they could to demonstrate that they are good patriotic Russians, not American lackeys.
The sanctions affected a number of Russian energy companies, cutting them off from Western sources of technology and financing, but this will primarily hurt the earnings of Western energy companies while helping their Chinese competitors. There were even some threats to cut Russia off from the SWIFT system, which would have made it quite difficult to transfer funds between Russia and the West, but what these threats did instead was to give Russia the impetus to introduce its own RUSSWIFT system, which will include even Iran, neutralizing future American efforts at imposing financial restrictions.
The sanctions were meant to cause economic damage, but Western efforts at inflicting short-term economic damage on Russia are failing. Coupled with a significant drop in the price of oil, all of this was supposed to hurt Russia fiscally, but since the sanctions caused the Ruble to drop in tandem, the net result on Russia’s state finances is a wash. Oil prices are lower, but then, thanks in part to the sanctions, so is the Ruble, and since oil revenues are still largely in dollars, this means that Russia’s tax receipts are at roughly the same level at before. And since Russian oil companies earn dollars abroad but spend rubles domestically, their production budgets remain unaffected.
The Russians also responded by imposing some counter-sanctions, and to take some quick steps to neutralize the effect of the sanctions on them. Russia banned the import of produce from the European Union—to the horror of farmers there. Especially hurt were those EU members who are especially anti-Russian: the Baltic states, which swiftly lost a large fraction of their GDP, along with Poland. An exception is being made for Serbia, which refused to join in the sanctions.
Here, the message is simple: friendships that have lasted many centuries matter; what the Americans want is not what the Americans get; and the EU is a mere piece of paper.
Thus, the counter-sanctions are driving wedges between the US and the EU, and, within the EU, between Eastern Europe (which the sanctions are hurting the most) and Western Europe, and, most importantly, they drive home the simple message that the US is not Europe’s friend.
There is something else going on that is going to become more significant in the long run: Russia has taken the hint and is turning away from the West and toward the East. It is parlaying its open defiance of American attempts at world domination into trade relationships throughout the world, much of which is sick and tired of paying tribute to Washington. Russia is playing a key role in putting together an international banking system that circumvents the US dollar and the US Federal Reserve. In these efforts, over half the world’s territory and population is squarely on Russia’s side and cheering loudly. Thus, the effort to isolate Russia has produced the opposite of the intended result: it is isolating the West from the rest of the world instead.
In other ways, the sanctions are actually being helpful. The import ban on foodstuffs from EU is a positive boon to domestic agriculture while driving home a politically important point: don’t take food from the hands of those who bite you.
Russia is already one of the world’s largest grain exporters, and there is no reason why it can’t become entirely self-sufficient in food.
But this is only the beginning. The Russians seem to have finally realized to what extent the playing field has been slanted against them. They have been forced to play by Washington’s rules in two key ways: by bending to Washington’s will in order to keep their credit ratings high with the three key Western credit rating agencies, in order to secure access to Western credit; and by playing by the Western rule-book when issuing credit of their own, thus keeping domestic interest rates artificially high.
The result was that US companies were able to finance their operations more cheaply, artificially making them more competitive. But now, as Russia works quickly to get out from under the US dollar, shifting trade to bilateral currency arrangements (backed by some amount of gold should trade imbalances develop) it is also looking for ways to turn the printing press to its advantage.
To date, the dictat handed down from Washington has been: “We can print money all we like, but you can’t, or we will destroy you.” But this threat is ringing increasingly hollow, and Russia will no longer be using its dollar revenues to buy up US debt.
One proposal currently on the table is to make it impossible to pay for Russian oil exports with anything other than rubles, by establishing two oil brokerages, one in St. Petersburg, the other, seven time zones away, in Vladivostok.
Foreign oil buyers would then have to earn their petro-rubles the honest way—through bilateral trade—or, if they can’t make enough stuff that the Russians want to import, they could pay for oil with gold (while supplies last). Or the Russians could simply print rubles, and, to make sure such printing does not cause domestic inflation, they could export some inflation by playing with the oil spigot and the oil export tariffs. And if the likes of George Soros decides to attack the ruble in an effort to devalue it, Russia could defend its currency simply by printing fewer rubles for a while—no need to stockpile dollar reserves.
So far, this all seems like typical economic warfare: the Americans want to get everything they want by printing money while bombing into submission or sanctioning anyone who disobeys them, while the rest of the world attempts to resist them.
But early in 2014 the situation changed.
There was a US-instigated coup in Kiev, and instead of rolling over and playing dead like they were supposed to, the Russians mounted a fast and brilliantly successful campaign to regain Crimea, then successfully checkmated the junta in Kiev, preventing it from consolidating control over the remaining former Ukrainian territory by letting volunteers, weapons, equipment and humanitarian aid enter—and hundreds of thousands of refugees exit—through the strictly notional Russian-Ukrainian border, all the while avoiding direct military confrontation with NATO.
Seeing all of this happening on the nightly news has awakened the Russian population from its political slumber, making it sit up and pay attention, and sending Putin’s approval rating through the roof.
Russians remember Russia’s unique historical mission is among the nations of the world:
It is to thwart all other nations’ attempts at world domination, be it Napoleonic France or Hitleresque Germany or Obamaniac America.

US-world-domination-tour

LASHA DARKMOON COMMENTS

Shortly after 9/11, in September 2001, the US embarked on a five-year plan to “take out” seven countries in five years. We have this on the authority of General Wesley Clark. According to Clark, an unnamed senior general at the Pentagon told him:
“We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years.”
Well, it looks like the American warmongers are eight years behind schedule. Because if things had worked out, they would have “got” Iran by September 2006.
The Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, was a Washington-based think tank created in 1997. PNAC’s aim? The establishment of a global American empire which brought all other nations into subjugation, under American hegemony.
The central requirement was for the US “to fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars.” For this they needed a pretext: “a new Pearl Harbor.” This they managed to find, by hook or by crook, in a remarkably short time: the catastrophe of 9/11 that was so convenient for Israel and such a bonanza for the American arms industry.
The entire thrust for world domination had the mark of international Jewry upon it, for it was through their control of America that the Jews sought to control the world.
Apart from a handful of Jewified non-Jews such as Cheney, Rumsfeld and Jeb Bush, the neoconservatives behind PNAC—the animating spirits, so to speak—were almost all Jews: Bernard Lewis, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Elliot Abrams, William Kristol, and the crypto-Jew Rupert Murdoch.
Right now we are at a dangerous cross-roads. If the wrong road is taken, we can expect Armageddon: a Jew-created catastrophe such as the world has never known.
In the chilling words of William Rivers Pitt:
“There will be adverse side effects…. The American economy will be ravaged by the need for increased defense spending, and by [its] constabulary duties in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Former allies will turn on us….As the eagle spreads its wings, our rhetoric and their resistance will become more agitated and dangerous.
Many people, of course, will die. They will die from war and from want, from famine and disease. At home, the social fabric will be torn apart in ways that make the Reagan nightmares of crack addiction, homelessness and AIDS seem tame by comparison. This is the price to be paid for empire…”
— William Rivers Pitt, The Project for the New American Century
Every century or so some nation forgets its history lessons and attacks Russia.
The result is always the same: lots of corpse-studded snowdrifts, and then Russian cavalry galloping into Paris, or Russian tanks rolling into Berlin.
Who knows how it will end this time around? Perhaps it will involve polite, well-armed men in green uniforms without insignia patrolling the streets of Brussels and Washington, DC.
Only time will tell.
You’d think that Obama has already overplayed his hand, and should behave accordingly. His popularity at home is roughly the inverse of Putin’s, which is to say, Obama is still more popular than Ebola, but not by much. He can’t get anything at all done, no matter how pointless or futile, and his efforts to date, at home and abroad, have been pretty much a disaster.
So what does this social worker turned national mascot decide to do? Well, the way the Russians see it, he has decided to declare war on Russia! In case you missed it, look up his speech before the UN General Assembly. It’s up on the White House web site. He placed Russia directly between Ebola and ISIS among the three topmost threats facing the world. Through Russian eyes his speech reads as a declaration of war.
It’s a new, mixed-mode sort of war. It’s not a total war to the death, although the US is being rather incautious by the old Cold War standards in avoiding a nuclear confrontation. It’s an information war—based on lies and unjust vilification; it’s a financial and economic war—using sanctions; it’s a political war—featuring violent overthrow of elected governments and support for hostile regimes on Russia’s borders; and it’s a military war—using ineffectual but nevertheless insulting moves such as stationing a handful of US troops in Estonia.
The goals of this war are clear: it is to undermine Russia economically, destroy it politically, dismember it geographically, and turn it into a pliant vassal state that furnishes natural resources to the West practically free of charge. But it doesn’t look like any of that is going to happen because, you see, a lot of Russians actually get all that, and will choose leaders who will not win any popularity contests in the West but who will lead them to victory.
Given the realization that the US and Russia are, like it or not, in a state of war, no matter how opaque or muddled, people in Russia are trying to understand why this is and what it means.
Obviously, the US has seen Russia as the enemy since about the time of the Revolution of 1917, if not earlier.
It is known that after the end of World War II America’s military planners were thinking of launching a nuclear strike against the USSR, and the only thing that held them back was the fact that they didn’t have enough bombs, meaning that Russia would have taken over all of Europe before the effects of the nuclear strikes could have deterred them from doing so.

HOW AMERICA VIEWS THE WORLD

Hugo Chavez once called Obama “a hostage in the White House,” and he wasn’t too far off. So, why are his advisers so eager to go to war with Russia, right now, this year?
Is it because the US is collapsing more rapidly than most people can imagine? This line of reasoning goes like this: the American scheme of world domination through military aggression and unlimited money-printing is failing before our eyes. The public has no interest in any more “boots on the ground,” bombing campaigns do nothing to reign in militants that Americans themselves helped organize and equip, dollar hegemony is slipping away with each passing day, and the Federal Reserve is fresh out of magic bullets and faces a choice between crashing the stock market and crashing the bond market.
In order to stop, or at least forestall this downward slide into financial/economic/political oblivion, the US must move quickly to undermine every competing economy in the world through whatever means it has left at its disposal, be it a bombing campaign, a revolution or a pandemic (although this last one can be a bit hard to keep under control).
Russia is an obvious target, because it is the only country in the world that has had the gumption to actually show international leadership in confronting the US and wrestling it down; therefore, Russia must be punished first, to keep the others in line.
I don’t disagree with this line of reasoning, but I do want to add something to it.
First, the American offensive against Russia, along with most of the rest of the world, is about things Americans like to call “facts on the ground,” and these take time to create. The world wasn’t made in a day, and it can’t be destroyed in a day (unless you use nuclear weapons, but then there is no winning strategy for anyone, the US included). But the entire financial house of cards can be destroyed rather quickly, and here Russia can achieve a lot while risking little.
Financially, Russia’s position is so solid that even the three Western credit ratings agencies don’t have the gall to downgrade Russia’s rating, sanctions notwithstanding.
This is a country that is aggressively paying down its foreign debt, is running a record-high budget surplus, has a positive balance of payments, is piling up physical gold reserves, and not a month goes by that it doesn’t sign a major international trade deal (that circumvents the US dollar).
In comparison, the US is a dead man walking: unless it can continue rolling over trillions of dollars in short-term debt every month at record-low interest rates, it won’t be able to pay the interest on its debt or its bills.
Good-bye, welfare state, hello riots. Good-bye military contractors and federal law enforcement, hello mayhem and open borders.
It must be understood that at this point the American ruling elite is almost entirely senile.

George Soros Russia poses existential threat to Europe

Julian Borger — Guardian.co.uk Oct 23, 2014

soros-hrwGeorge Soros has warned that Russia’s expansionism poses an existential threat to the EU and called for greater material support for Ukraine.

The investor and philanthropist argues that Vladimir Putin’s mix of authoritarianism and aggressive nationalism represents an alternative model to western liberal democracies, referring to the admiration for the Russian president expressed by the Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, the president of France’s Front National, Marine Le Pen, and Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán.

“Europe is facing a challenge from Russia to its very existence. Neither the European leaders nor their citizens are fully aware of this challenge or know how best to deal with it,” Soros writes in an article published in the New York Review of Books.

“Now Russia is presenting an alternative that poses a fundamental challenge to the values and principles on which the European Union was originally founded. It is based on the use of force that manifests itself in repression at home and aggression abroad, as opposed to the rule of law.”

Soros told the Guardian: “There is a general dissatisfaction with the EU as a result of the euro crisis, which has perverted the initial impetus for forming a union of like-minded democratic states. The euro crisis was mishandled and lasted a long time, and it turned a voluntary union of equals into something quite different.”

Soros said the EU had become a dysfunctional relationship between creditor and debtor nations, resulting in widespread resentment. “Putin has established good relations with those agitating against Europe,” he said. “The failure of Europe as an experiment in supranational government would make Russia a potent threat … The collapse of Ukraine would be a tremendous loss for Nato, the European Union and the United States. A victorious Russia would become much more influential within the EU and pose a potent threat to the Baltic states with large ethnic Russian populations.”

Soros, founder and chairman of the Open Society network of pro-democracy foundations, predicts that after the elections in Ukraine on Sunday, the Russian president will offer his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko, a gas supply deal on condition he appoint a prime minister acceptable to Putin. If that is refused, Putin “may then revert to the smaller victory that would still be within his reach: he could open by force a land route from Russia to Crimea and Transnistria [a pro-Moscow breakaway statelet in Moldova] before winter”.

Soros calls for radically boosted western support of Ukraine with an “immediate cash injection of at least $20bn with a promise of more when needed” to help write off public debt, and help to reform the country’s energy sector to make it less dependent on Russia. By assisting Ukrainian reformers, he argues that the EU would be rediscovering its founding principles. “The European Union would save itself by saving Ukraine,” Soros said.

ET/UFO’s — New Age Assault on Christian Faith

Related- Exorcist Claims ET’s are Demonic in Character

by Alan Morrison — (Excerpt by henrymakow.com)

serpent and the crossThe very heart of the matter today is the radical conflict between atheistic or pantheistic scientists and Biblical Christianity.
One only has to examine the leading edges in genetics, obstetrics, astronomy and the ‘new physics’ to see that there is an all out war on the teachings of Scripture which will soon come to a head. There can be no doubt whatsoever that the true Church — that is, genuine believers, clinging to the Cross, worshiping God, extolling Christ, preaching the Word, and eschewing the corruptions of the world — will be utterly marginalized by all this UFO bunkum and the other discoveries which will shortly come to light; and our churches will be ridiculed as dangerous sects which refuse to cooperate with these ‘beneficial’ discoveries of our times.
It should also come as no surprise that the world’s media was so obliging in this circus, with headlines such as ‘Life on Mars — Official’ (Daily Mirror, 7/8/96), or ‘In the Beginning, did God Create Aliens?” (Times, 8/8/96), or ‘If the Aliens do Decide to Call, We’re Listening’ (Times, 12/8/96).
The bulk of the media across the world today is controlled by a few huge conglomerates which are essentially lackeys of the New World Order. So NASA’s little finger twitches about micro-organisms and we have banner headlines four inches tall: LIFE ON MARS! — and an article in the Times (12/8/96) states ,”Once dogged by the crackpot image, the search for alien life has become credible”.
It is extraordinary how the world will reject the Christian Gospel as a childish myth, but yet it is so ready to accept a scientistic fable about fossils from Mars!

Concerning a Recent Visit from a Dear Friend

Visible Origami — Oct 24, 2014

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
I’ve learned so much from my mistakes that I am seriously considering making a few more (grin).
Well… my plans are solidifying and the divine isn’t laughing (yet). This is a portion of what I want to talk about tonight. My destination and the time of arrival are being set. Now it is just a question of which island, since there is suddenly an interest from several residents who would like to see me in my old location. What will be will be.
Moments ago, I was standing outside the back door, smoking a short butt and watching a spider crawl along the wall toward the open door. I thought, ‘maybe he’s looking to come inside since the cold cannot be far off’. Then he stopped and I thought, “No… it’s the light he walked over to be in.’
Then the divine came into my mind and said, “You know it all comes together when you master Nature. By this I mean your internal nature; The external nature always operates in accord with whatever relationship a person has engineered by their thoughts, words and actions. No one escapes some kind of relationship.
Then the divine said, “You can accomplish this. You can certainly accomplish it with me in residence. Would you like that?” “Yes, yes,” I replied. “Well… you have proved that you won’t be diverted from the pursuit of me. It stands to reason that I would inevitably show up in a real and lasting manner as a result of your persistence. You have to firmly believe that and you are approaching this state which is why we are having this communication. You HAVE TO believe that I am capable of ANYTHING through you. There is no limit to what I can accomplish through anyone, should I so choose. From among humanity come my regents on Earth, Anyone might think, ‘ah, I am so far away. Ah, I have so much work to do to be worthy.’ Certainly anyone I would take seriously would have such thoughts. No one without the proper humility can host me. It’s a cosmic law. It is true that I see through humanities eyes and hear through humanities ears and… as the recording angel I catalog all of the events of anyone’s life but some relationships are special because I made it so based on the secret truth in the particular heart.
“Whom I choose to live in and act through, that is a rare thing indeed and it is only rare because the vast majority of everyone does not want this more than anything else. Until that happens, it doesn’t happen. Prior too, I give or deny pretty much everything, mostly to see what happens but also because someone really wants it, whatever it is.
“I know ahead of time how that’s all going to work out. If I really care about someone all kinds of unpredictable things might happen and to those on the outside it may look like misfortune but I am simply acting as a potter and shaping that soul to a particular end, based on capacity and whatever talents are invested in them.
“You hit on a good point my friend, the other day in the car when you said, “You possess everything. Why on Earth would anyone look anywhere else for whatever it is that they want?” Indeed. Not only do I possess everything that can be imagined by anyone but I also possess many things that are not imagined. I alone can activate all manner of things within one and as for, ‘ah, I am so far away. Ah, I have so much work to do to be worthy.’ The timeline is up to me. I can transform someone utterly in an instant and this is what the seeker must keep in front of them. This is an important thing to realize because it sets the ground for it to happen. As ones capacity for belief is limited, so is their ability to realize what they visualize. It’s that ‘faith of a mustard seed’ thing.
“To each according to their capacity is what I operate according to and when the time comes, I can light someone up like a Christmas tree. Of all the things that might be important in this or any life, one thing stands supreme among them and that is the discovery of me within. Once that happens everything else is academic, merely a matter of time. You have achieved this. You have little idea of the value of that and your recall of the things that have happened to you is often subjective. You need to cultivate a greater objectivity concerning yourself, or you could just ask me for it, heh heh.
“When one has a fine and detached objectivity concerning themselves, it is possible to see all of the events of ones life in a new light. In any case, once someone has found me, they are in possession of something greater and more valuable than any thing, any position, anything. They are in possession of something worth more than all of these things put together AND- should one be named my friend that is truly special for they become my companion in all manner of things and travel with me as the occasion permits. They have the certitude that one has in respect of a dear and devoted friend but how much greater is my friendship than any friendship one might have here? Here… yes I am here. I am here now and what will be will be,
“For one who has my friendship, he also has my counsel. Take this very much to heart my friend, once contact has been made it is only a matter of time. There is no departing away again. There is no trial or test, for the purpose of demonstration, that I cannot accomplish through you. Learn to look upon past events with new eyes. Learn further not to look to the past at all, nor the future either. It is here and now where and when I appear and eternity is here in the here and now. Everything that happens and everything anyone is in anticipation of is in the here and now. Heaven is here and now for those who have been granted entry and one of the greatest prizes is to gain entry while still resident here. That is assured for anyone who wants me more than anything else.
“Truly, visible, one of the most unfortunate things is the seduction of the human heart and mind by world glamour because it deceives one into the desire for pedestrian things which have no comparison with the gifts of the spirit. Therefore, it should be very easy for anyone to love me with all their heart and soul if they realize this. Not realizing this is a serious drawback in ones ability to proceed. The best one can hope for is a stalemate between their occasional attraction for me and the relentless distraction of other things they have placed value upon. AND consider this; anything one might long for and acquire, any relationship or… well, like I said… anything… how can anyone enjoy anything in any meaningful and profound way without me? I am the supreme enjoyer. This should make it even easier for one no matter what it is they think they want because only with me can there be any true satisfaction in anything.
“I grant all manner of things. For some I place blessing upon blessing on them. I manifest the cornucopia. I make the rainbow. I grant the capacity to experience and I grant the ability to learn from it. Anyone who has found me should be so filled with gratitude that there is no impulse to be cross with others or to think overly upon anyone else except as to in what manner one might be helpful. You will see the value of this soon enough. Whenever I arrive in such a way there is change coming shortly. Go and share this with others and practice that energized expectancy you have been mentioning. I’ll be in touch (laughter).”

Early Easter Islanders had contact with Americas

Will Dunham — Reuters Oct 24, 2014

Easter Island figuresThey may have lived on a remote dot of land in the Pacific, but the ancient Polynesian people who populated Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, were not as isolated as long believed.

A genetic study, published in the journal Current Biology, reveals these ancient people had significant contact with Native American populations hundreds of years before the first Westerners reached the island in 1722.

The Rapa Nui people created a unique culture best known for the 900 monumental head-and-torso stone statues known as moai erected around Easter Island. The culture flourished starting around 1200 until falling into decline by the 16th century.

Genetic data on 27 Easter Island natives indicated that interbreeding between the Rapa Nui and native people in South America occurred roughly between 1300 and 1500.

“We found evidence of gene flow between this population and Native American populations, suggesting an ancient ocean migration route between Polynesia and the Americas,” says the study’s lead author, geneticist Anna-Sapfo Malaspinas of the Centre for GeoGenetics at the University of Copenhagen.

The genetic evidence indicates either that Rapa Nui people travelled the 3700 kilometres to South America or that Native Americans journeyed to Easter Island. The researchers believe it probably was the Rapa Nui people making the arduous ocean round trips.

“It seems most likely that they voyaged from Rapa Nui to South America and brought South Americans back to Rapa Nui and admixed with them,” says Mark Stoneking, a geneticist with Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, who collaborated on a related study of Brazil’s indigenous Botocudo people.

“So it will be interesting to see if in further studies any signal of Polynesian, Rapa Nui ancestry can be found in South Americans.”

In making their way to South America and back, the Rapa Nui people may have spent perilous weeks in wooden outrigger canoes.

The researchers conclude that the intermixing occurred 19 to 23 generations ago. They say Rapa Nui people are not believed to have started mixing with Europeans until much later in the 19th century.

Malaspinas says the genetic ancestry of today’s Rapa Nui people is roughly 75 per cent Polynesian, 15 per cent European and 10 per cent Native American.

Human skulls

A second study, also published in Current Biology , illustrates another case of Polynesians venturing into South America.

Two ancient human skulls from Brazil’s indigenous Botocudo people, known for the large wooden disks they wore in their lips and ears, belonged to people who were genetically Polynesian, with no detectable Native American ancestry.

“How the two Polynesian individuals belonging to the Botocudos came into Brazil is the million-dollar question,” says the study’s lead author geneticist Eske Willerslev of the Centre for GeoGenetics at the University of Copenhagen

The findings suggest these Polynesians reached South America and made their way to Brazil, either landing on the western coast of the continent and crossing the interior or voyaging around Tierra del Fuego and up the east coast, Stoneking says.

“In either event it is an amazing story.”

US to take airport in Iraq’s Kurdistan as military airbase: Officials

Press TV — Oct 23, 2014

F-18 Super Hornet. Click to enlargeThe United States reportedly plans to take control of a strategic airport in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan and use the site as a military airbase in the region.

Unnamed Kurdish officials say the evacuation of Herir Airport has started as demanded by Washington. The airport’s personnel have been ordered to clear out within weeks.

US commanders visited the territory last month to examine the airport and its surroundings, officials said.

Herir airport is located near Arbil (or Erbil), 60 kilometers from the Iranian border and close to both Turkey and Syria.

It was a military airbase under Saddam Hussein’s regime and was used by US forces during and after the 2003 invasion of the oil-rich country.

The airport will be Washington’s only military base in Iraq’s Kurdistan region following the withdrawal of US troops in December 2011.

The United States and its allies are already using the international Erbil airport as launching ground for airstrikes against ISIL militants.

US forces have been bombing ISIL positions in Iraq since August and expanded the aerial campaign into neighboring Syria in late September.

However, US officials acknowledge that the airstrikes are not stopping ISIL advances in Iraq and Syria.

President Barack Obama has deployed about 1,600 military personnel and special operation soldiers to “assist and advise” the Iraqi military in pushing back the terrorist organization.

Top US military commanders insist they will need more US troops on the ground in Iraq in order to defeat ISIL.

Michael Harris’ book A Party of One, about how Canadian PM Stephen Harper assumed dictatorial powers, has focused attention on the role of veteran US political consultant Arthur Finkelstein, 68, whose resume reaches back to Nixon and Reagan.
His clients includes a who’s who of right-wing politicians in the US, Israel, Eastern Europe and Canada. (See client list at bottom of Wiki entry.) Finkelstein is notorious for clunky but effective attack ads, such as those on Canadian Liberal leader Justin Trudeau.
Below are pertinent passages from articles about Finkelstein. What are the chances Arthur Finkelstein is another link between the Illuminati bankers and their political vassals? Does this help explain the decline of parliamentary democracy in Canada?
“Finkelstein is the ultimate sort of Dr. Strangelove, who believes you can largely disregard what the politicians are going to say and do, what the newspapers are going to do, and create a simple and clear and often negative message, which, repeated often enough, can bring you to victory,” said Philip Friedman, a Manhattan consultant who got his start working for Finkelstein Democratic rival David Garth.
In November, please vote for the llluminati Jewish shill of your choice!

We’ve all been Finkelthinked

Finkelstein would also work for Ronald Reagan, before joining Canada’s National Citizens Coalition [an anti-big-government lobby that Harper led from 1998-2002.] According to Gerry Nicholls, who was Stephen Harper’s VP when he was running the NCC:
Arthur [Finkelstein] was an American political consultant who worked for the NCC, he gave us political, media and fundraising advice. He was, in fact, truth-be-told, one of the chief reasons behind the NCC’s success. He was also the top Republican political consultant, if not the top American political consultant period. He was also the guy who basically invented the negative ad. His nickname was the “Merchant of Venom.”
And this “Merchant of Venom” taught Stephen Harper well.

US Negotiator: Some Want Talks With Iran to Fail

Bradley Clapper — Associated Press Oct 23, 2014

The chief U.S. nuclear negotiator suggested Thursday that some U.S. allies and members of Congress hope diplomacy with Iran fails, offering a glimpse of the difficult task awaiting the Obama administration if it manages to secure a nuclear agreement with Tehran by a late November deadline.

Wendy Sherman, the undersecretary of state for political affairs, said negotiators are focused on clinching an accord that gives the world confidence that Iran’s nuclear program is exclusively peaceful. In exchange, Iran would get significant relief from the international sanctions that have crippled its economy.

Significant hurdles remain, however. For the U.S., they include selling an agreement at home and to its closest regional partners.

“We are aware, of course, that this negotiating process is, shall we say, controversial,” Sherman said in a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

“Some worry that it will fail. Others seem to fear that it will succeed. Many have questions and doubts,” she said. “The Obama administration has consulted regularly with members of Congress and with our many overseas partners, including Israel and the Gulf states. We have heard a variety of concerns and done our best to answer hard questions.”

The U.S. government has come out of those discussions with a reinforced conviction that diplomacy with Iran is worth the risk, Sherman emphasized.

The technical details of the talks have been closely guarded by the negotiating partners — the U.S., Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran — even if the broad parameters of a potential agreement are clear: Iran would have to cut back on its number of centrifuges enriching uranium and redesign a planned heavy water reactor so it doesn’t produce plutonium. Both materials can be used in nuclear warheads. In exchange, the U.S. in particular would have to roll back some of the financial, trade and oil sanctions that significantly cut off Iran from global markets.

Congress could prove an obstacle in this regard, given threats by Democrats and Republicans to institute new sanctions if the deal isn’t to their liking.

Negotiators want to conclude the talks by Nov. 24.

Sherman said talks have progressed at a “deliberative pace, which is diplo-speak for not so fast.”

Top Iranian Official: Obama is ‘The Weakest of U.S. Presidents’

Adam Kredo — Washington Free Beacon Oct 23, 2014

Obama visits the cell where Nelson Mandela was held on Robben Island. The Sotuh African apartheid regime's very own version of modern America's Guantanamo

Obama visits the cell where Nelson Mandela was held on Robben Island. The Sotuh African apartheid regime’s very own version of modern America’s Guantanamo

The Iranian president’s senior advisor has called President Barack Obama “the weakest of U.S. presidents” and described the U.S. leader’s tenure in office as “humiliating,” according to a translation of the highly candid comments provided to the Free Beacon.

The comments by Ali Younesi, senior advisor to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, come as Iran continues to buck U.S. attempts to woo it into the international coalition currently battling the Islamic State (IS, ISIL, or ISIS).

And with the deadline quickly approaching on talks between the U.S. and Iran over its contested nuclear program, Younesi’s denigrating views of Obama could be a sign that the regime in Tehran has no intent of conceding to America’s demands.

“Obama is the weakest of U.S. presidents, he had humiliating defeats in the region. Under him the Islamic awakening happened,” Younesi said in a Farsi language interview with Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency.

“Americans witnessed their greatest defeats in Obama’s era: Terrorism expanded, [the] U.S. had huge defeats under Obama [and] that is why they want to compromise with Iran,” Younesi said.

The criticism of Obama echoes comments made recently by other world leaders and even former members of the president’s own staff, such as Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Younesi, a former minister of intelligence in the country, also had some harsh comments about U.S. conservatives and the state of Israel.

“Conservatives are war mongers, they cannot tolerate powers like Iran,” he said. “If conservatives were in power they would go to war with us because they follow Israel and they want to portray Iran as the main threat and not ISIS.”

Younesi took a more conciliatory view towards U.S. Democrats, who he praised for viewing Iran as “no threat.”

“We [the Islamic Republic] have to use this opportunity [of Democrats being in power in the U.S.], because if this opportunity is lost, in future we may not have such an opportunity again,” Younesi said.

The candid comments by Rouhani’s right-hand-man could provide a window into the regime’s mindset as nuclear talks wind to a close.

The Obama administration has maintained for months that it will not permit Congress to have final say over the deal, which many worry will permit Iran to continue enriching uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon.

About the potential for a nuclear deal, Youseni said, “I am not optimistic so much, but the two sides are willing to reach results,” according to an official translation posted online by Fars News.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have adopted a much more pessimistic view of Iran’s negotiating tactics, which many on the Hill maintain are meant to stall for time as Tehran completes its nuclear weapon.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), for instance, wrote a letter to the White House this week to tell Obama his desire to skirt Congress is unacceptable.

“Congress cannot and will not sit idly by if the Administration intends on taking unilateral action to provide sanctions relief to Iran for a nuclear deal we perceive to be weak and dangerous for our national security, the security of the region, and poses a threat to the U.S. and our ally, the democratic Jewish State of Israel,” Ros-Lehtinen wrote.

“If the Administration opts to act in a manner that directly contradicts Congress’ intent, then Congress must take all necessary measures to either reverse the executive, unilateral action, or to strengthen and enhance current sanctions law,” she told the president.

Gilad Atzmon: The Cognitive Elite of Jewish History

Sailing on the Prevailing Wind of the Temporary

Reflections in a Petri Dish — Oct 23, 2014

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet. Ruf!
Ah… to be more like my dog. The fidelity and unconditional love shames and inspires me every day; probably why he’s there. I’m beginning to think everything is where it is for a ‘very good reason’. Oh… I’ve always thought that but it didn’t make it to the visceral until recently. You can believe it’s all there for a reason, or you can believe there is neither rhyme nor reason to any of it. Somehow… the latter is decidedly unattractive. Besides… when I look at the symmetry and beauty of Nature and the wider universe; what I see is an inexplicable harmony among diverse interactives. Now… how one explains that, to themselves and others is where the controversy comes in and… I suspect the reason for that is that no one really knows and everyone either suspects that or has a visceral awareness of it. I like what Lao Tzu said;
“Existence is beyond the power of words
To define:
Terms may be used
But are none of them absolute.
In the beginning of heaven and earth there were no words,
Words came out of the womb of matter;
And whether a man dispassionately
Sees to the core of life
Or passionately
Sees the surface,
The core and the surface
Are essentially the same,
Words making them seem different
Only to express appearance.
If name be needed, wonder names them both:
From wonder into wonder
Existence opens.”
AND this;
“The breath of life moves through a deathless valley
Of mysterious motherhood
Which conceives and bears the universal seed,
The seeming of a world never to end,
Breath for men to draw from as they will:
And the more they take of it, the more remains.”
How can you improve on that? You can’t. Probably one of the reasons he is not more universally followed is he provides no room for argument. You can’t argue with him except to expose yourself as a fool. The other thing is that there’s no effective religion that represents it. Sure you have the so called ‘Taoism’  but… that’s kind of like fries with your burger. You will be getting something to eat but the centerpiece of the meal is the burger and that you are going to have to go look for.
Today I was at the dentist; part of the process of my new teeth. I have to take care of this before I migrate because obviously… looking at the present state of my finances, something like this would be out of the question in the USA. When I am at the doctors (rarely) or a dentist, I encounter a perspective on the world that I don’t usually get; the same way I learn things from the commercials on NFL Network. First the medical offices; they got copies of Vogue and Cover and that sort of glamour garbage. I’ve been amazed to ponder the prices women (the ones with money) spend on clothing and shoes. You got 2,000 and up for shoes designed by men who hate women. You got jeans and nothing blouses for 4 and 600 and up. Everyone is making perfume. Jimmy Choo is making perfume now. I wonder if it incorporates the smell of his shoes? I look at the Heroin dead model’s eyes and the ridiculous poses which make the individual nothing more than a commodity AND they know this AND they’re okay with this, unless you get to the Jennifer Lawrence stage where you hear, “I’ll do anything for my career, it comes first;” followed by, “no one has the right to look at naked pictures of me. They should be ashamed of themselves yadda yadda.”
This reminds me of an old joke where a guy goes up to an attractive woman in a bar and asks her, “Would you go to bed with me for a million dollars?” She replies, “Yes, I would.” Then he says, “Well then, would you sleep with me for a hundred dollars?” She replies, “Of course not! What do you think I am?” He answers, “We’ve already established that, now we are only hassling over the price.”
I don’t know if it is the case on the regular networks in the USA but on NFL Network, it is pork and bacon central. Now they are selling some cheap pans that allow you to wrap all kinds of things in bacon; wrap whatever in bacon and wrap bacon around whatever from the inside too. I use my customary logic on this sort of thing and thereby I deduce that, if you are what you eat, it serves the imperatives of materialism for people to eat as much pork as possible.
What has any of this to do with Taoism, Nature, the Universe and my dog? There is an essential harmony to existence that exists when one is harmonious with their essential nature. The world then, reflexively, adjusts to that. When you are out of harmony with your essential nature, your perceptions of what is real and what is valuable and what is not become hopelessly out of sync with the natural order. When you are out of sync with the natural order, you come to an unnatural end and the degree of suffering you experience is massively enhanced. It may not seem so at times but… it WILL catch up with you. The truth of this is concealed from the lumpen proles. They are not to know that the rich and powerful are just as helpless as they. This keeps everyone driven.
Let’s look at that term, ‘driven’. All of us have been on the highways and encountered those individuals who are maniacally obsessed with getting somewhere so that they can hurry up and wait. I always wonder if it’s some kind of symbolic ass rape phenomena going on in the subconscious the way they like to tailgate and push. Well… thing is, they’re driven. They are under the spell and under the control of a force that drives one toward all manner of eventual calamity. Conversely… if ‘you’ are driving, you are in command. How can you be in command if there is any urgency about your movements? How could there be a need for urgency if you are operational within the Tao of your true nature? So… I have learned not to get angry at these fools but to be grateful that I do not share their condition. I am constantly reminded; ‘there but for fortune goes I.’
Everywhere you see people seeking to fit in with what is contrary to their best interests because it is the prevailing wind of the Temporary. They are trying to fit in the way cattle respond to being herded and they are being herded and for what amounts to the same end result, more or less. If one could see this, one would not do this, so… regardless of how one views scripture, it’s a case of the blind leading the blind with the predictable result.
Sure, it can get cold and lonely on The Lonesome Highway but there are unexpected perks that go down when one gets past the probationary period. One comes to find that the highway is alive and conscious. That’s a big thing, oh yeah!

Canadian Terror Wave a Modern-Day Gladio

Tony Cartalucci — Land Destroyer Oct 23, 2014

Bibeau. Click to enlarge

As warned, after multiple staged incidents used to ratchet up fear and paranoia in the build-up to US and its allies’ military intervention in Syria and Iraq, at least two live attacks have now been carried out in Canada – precisely as they were predicted.

The first attack involved a deadly hit-and-run that left one Canadian soldier dead. AP would report in its article, “Terrorist ideology blamed in Canada car attack,” that:

A young convert to Islam who killed a Canadian soldier in a hit-and-run had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey, authorities said Tuesday.

The second, most recent attack, involved a shooting in Ottawa injuring several and killing another Canadian soldier. RT in its article, “Ottawa gunman ‘identified’ as recent Muslim convert, high-risk traveler,” would report that:

While the name of the Ottawa gunman is yet to be announced, a number of officials told numerous media that the shooter is believed to be Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a recent Muslim convert, allegedly designated as a high-risk traveler.

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall north of Montreal, two US officials told Reuters, claiming that American law enforcement agencies have been advised that the attacker recently converted to Islam. 

AP sources also identified the man to be Zehaf-Bibeau. A Twitter account associated with Islamic State militants tweeted a photo they identified as the Ottawa shooter. The Globe and Mail reports that the shooter was designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian authorities with his passport seized.

Clearly, both suspects were under the watch of not only Canadian authorities, but also US investigators, beforethe attacks.

Canada’s Attacks Were Predictable – Western Security Agencies are Prime Suspects

It was warned last month after security agencies staged scares in both the US and Australia, that suspects under investigation, being walked through planned terrorist attacks by Western security agencies as part of “sting operations” would inevitably be switched to live terrorist attacks.

In mid-September A Rochester man, Mufid A. Elfgeeh, was accused by the FBI of attempting to provide material support to ISIS (undercover FBI agents), attempting to kill US soldiers, and possession of firearms and silencers (provided to him by the FBI). The FBI’s own official press release stated (emphasis added):

According to court records, Elfgeeh attempted to provide material support to ISIS in the form of personnel, namely three individuals, two of whom were cooperating with the FBI. Elfgeeh attempted to assist all three individuals in traveling to Syria to join and fight on behalf of ISIS. Elfgeeh also plotted to shoot and kill members of the United States military who had returned from Iraq. As part of the plan to kill soldiers, Elfgeeh purchased two handguns equipped with firearm silencers and ammunition from a confidential source. The handguns were made inoperable by the FBI before the confidential source gave them to Elfgeeh.

It was warned that only an inoperable firearm stood between Elfgeeh’s arrest and his successful execution of deadly plans hatched by him and his undercover FBI handlers. This script, written by the FBI to entrap Elfgeeh, would be followed almost to the letter in live attacks subsequently carried out in Canada resulting in the death of two Canadian soldiers. Conveniently, both suspects are now dead and little chance remains of ascertaining the truth of who they were in contact with and how they carried out their deadly attacks.

With both suspects having been on both US and Canadian watch lists – it is very likely undercover agents were involved in either one or both cases. While many possibilities exist, Western security agencies should be among the first suspects considered as potential collaborators.

A Modern-Day Operation Gladio - Inducing Fear, Obedience, and Control

Before Elfgeeh’s entrapment and later live attacks in Canada, US policymakers and pundits had begun in earnest setting the rhetorical stage for eventual staged attacks. With serial beheadings failing to raise Western public support necessary for an expedient intervention in Syria, more insidious provocations appeared to be in the works. Setting the stage, a CBS/Associated Press story titled, “Former Deputy CIA Director: ‘I Would Not Be Surprised’ If ISIS Member Shows Up To US Mall Tomorrow With AK-47,” would claim immediately after the initial James Foley ISIS execution video that:

“The short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks,” Morell stated. “If an ISIS member showed up at a mall in the United States tomorrow with an AK-47 and killed a number of Americans, I would not be surprised.”

Morell warned that over the long-term the extremist group could be planning for a 9/11-style attack that killed thousands of Americans.

1993 World Trade Center bombingThe FBI has a long list of foiled terror plots of its own creation. More disturbingly are the plots they conceived but “accidentally” allowed to go “live.” One might recall the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. FBI agents, according to the New York Times, were indeed overseeing the bombers that detonated a device killing six and wounding many more at the World Trade Center.

In their article, Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast,” NYT reported:

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.

The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.

Considering the 1993 bombing and the fact that the FBI literally oversaw the construction and deployment of a deadly bomb that killed 6, it is clear that the FBI can at any time through design or disastrous incompetence, turn one of their contrived entrapment cases into a live terror attack. One can only guess at how many similar FBI operations are currently taking place within the United States involving ISIS sympathizers – any one of which could be turned into a live terror attack provided the weapons handed over to potential terrorists are functioning, just as the bomb was in 1993 when it was driven into the lower levels of the World Trade Center.

It is very likely that the recent attacks in Canada involved at least one “informant” working for the FBI. Because the FBI uses confidential informants to handle suspects, if a plot is switched ”live,” the informant will be implicated as an accomplice and the FBI’s covert role will remain uncompromised.

The FBI has an impressive portfolio of intentionally created, then foiled terror plots. Its methods include allowing suspects to handle both real and inoperable weapons and explosives. These methods allow the FBI to switch entrapment cases "live" at any moment simply by switching out duds and arrests with real explosives and successful attacks. Because the FBI uses "informants," when attacks go live, these confidential assets can be blamed, obfuscating the FBI's involvement.  Click to enlarge

Everything from a mass shooting to a bombing, and even an Operation Northwoods-style false flag attack involving aircraft could be employed to provide Wall Street and London with the support it needs to accelerate its long-stalled agenda of regime change and reordering in both Syria and across the Iranian arc of influence. Readers may recall Operation Northwoods, reported on in an ABC News article titled, “U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba,” which bluntly stated:

In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba. 

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

In addition to Operation Northwoods, the public must also consider NATO’s Operation Gladio, and its larger “stay behind” networks established after World War II across Europe and at the center of multiple grisly assassinations, mass shootings, and terrorist bombings designed to demonize the Soviet Union as well as criminalize and crush support for left-leaning political parties growing in popularity in Western Europe. It would be determined that NATO’s own covert militant groups were killing innocent Western Europeans in order to effect a “strategy of tension” used to instill fear, obedience, and control over Western populations.

That the FBI and Australian authorities had coordinated staged security operations in tandem on opposite ends of the globe to terrify their respective populations into line behind an impending war with Syria, and now two highly suspicious attacks have been carried out using the very script Western security agencies were using to lead suspects through “sting operations,” suggests a new “Operation Northwoods” or “Operation Gladio” of sorts is already being executed.

Staged executions on cue by ISIS in the Middle East of US and British citizens at perfectly timed junctures of the West’s attempt to sell intervention both at home and abroad, and now live shootings just in time to heighten a new “strategy of tension” reek of staged mayhem for the sole purpose of provoking war. Could grander and ultimately more tragic mayhem be in store? As ABC News’ article on Operation Northwoods and the Military Channel’s documentary on Operation Gladio suggest, there is no line Western special interests will hesitate to cross.

With the West attempting to claim ISIS now has a “global” reach, the US and its partners’ attempts to obfuscate the very obvious state-sponsorship it is receiving will become exponentially more difficult. That the FBI is admittedly stringing along easily manipulated, malevolent patsies who at any time could be handed real weapons and sent on shooting sprees and/or bombings – and now apparently have been – Americans, Canadians, Europeans, and Australians would be foolish to conclude that their real enemy resides somewhere in Syria and not right beside them at home, upon the very seats of Western power.

Making Sense of Ottawa Shooting

Because I am a Canadian, some readers have asked for my take on the attack Wednesday on two of Canada’s national institutions.

First, an honor guard at the National War Monument, Cpl. Nathan Cirrilo, was shot and killed. Afterward the shooter, Michael Abdul Zehaf Bibeau, whose father is from Libya, was able to enter the Parliament Building where he fired off some rounds before being killed.
The fact that Bibeau was able to enter the Parliament Buildings with a rifle is highly suspicious. The press entrance he used is protected by airport-like security and guards.
Didn’t they know a shooting had just taken place a few blocks away?
I see this incident in the context of what Albert Pike predicted in his famous letter to Mazzini. The Third World War would be between Zionists and Islam.
There is a need for all Westerners to feel like Israelis, under the constant threat of terror. This goes a long way toward meeting that demand.
In order to have a confrontation between Zionists and Islam, you need to build up an Islamic enemy. ISIS fills that role.
It was created by “Zionist” intelligence services: CIA, CSIS, Mossad, etc. (They can’t demonize all Muslims because they would have to explain why they are importing so many.)
Then you have the Zionist-controlled nations — the US, Canada, UK, France etc.– declare war on ISIS. Thus, even though Canada had just extricated itself from Afghanistan, and never participated in Iraq, Stephen Harper is sending six jets to Iraq and 600 support staff to make sure they run.
BibeauIn response, ISIS has warned of terror attacks, and right on schedule there have been two now. Two soldiers were hit by a car in Quebec on Monday. One died.
ISIS apparently posted this image of Bibeau. If he was indeed working for ISIS, and ISIS is Western-backed, then this indeed was a false flag.
As we all know by now, the mass media is a collaborator in present and future wars, including all false flag terror.

China says wants closer military ties with Iran

China wants to have closer military ties with Iran, the Chinese defence minister told the visiting head of the Iranian navy on Thursday, state media reported, reaffirming diplomatic links despite controversy over Iran’s nuclear plans.

Chinese Defence Minister Chang Wanquan told Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari that the two armed forces have seen “good cooperation on mutual visits, personnel training and other fields in recent years”, China’s official Xinhua news agency reported.

“Exchanges between the two navies have been fruitful and their warships have paid successful visits to each other,” it cited Chang as saying.

“Chang … stressed China is willing to work with Iran to further pragmatic cooperation and strengthen military-to-military ties.”

Xinhua cited Sayyari as saying Iran attached great importance to its ties with China and was “ready to enhance bilateral exchanges to push forward cooperation between the two armed forces, especially in naval cooperation”.

For the first time ever, two Chinese warships docked at Iran’s Bandar Abbas port to take part in a joint naval exercises in the Gulf, Iranian state media reported on Sept. 20.

Naval cooperation between Iran and China is aimed at reinforcing Iran’s military capability in the Gulf, analysts say, as well as displaying China’s plan to exert greater influence and presence beyond East Asia.

“The (port) call reflects China’s military-to-military relationship with Iran,” said Christian Le Mière, a naval expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies think-tank.

“It is the most explicit sign of Beijing’s acknowledgment of this relationship, which has remained relatively covert until now.”

China’s People’s Liberation Army Daily separately reported that Sayyari had been given tours of a Chinese submarine and warships, where he “listened to an introduction on equipment ability and weapons systems”.

Sayyari said he hoped Iran and China could cooperate on anti-piracy operations, the newspaper said.

China is Iran’s top oil buyer and has been the most aggressive in raising its crude purchases after an easing of the Western sanctions aimed at ending Tehran’s disputed nuclear programme.

Iran and the United States said last week they made some progress in high-level nuclear talks aimed at reaching a final resolution to the decade-old dispute but that much work remained to clinch a deal by a late-November deadline.

China, a participant at the nuclear talks with Iran, has consistently urged a negotiated solution and decried efforts to place sanctions which have not been endorsed by the United Nations on Iran.

Moscow says U.S. working on military ‘scenarios’ at Russia’s borders

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu accused the United States on Thursday of working on military “scenarios” near Russia’s borders that he said were a source of grave concern.

Interfax news agency quoted Shoigu as expressing surprise at a speech on Wednesday in which U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said U.S. armed forces “must deal with a revisionist Russia – with its modern and capable Army – on NATO’s doorstep”.

Russia’s relations with the West have reached a post-Cold War low over the conflict in Ukraine, with Moscow denying accusations that it has supplied weapons and troops to back pro-Russian separatists in the east of the former Soviet republic.

“Chuck Hagel’s thesis on the necessity for the American army to ‘deal’ with ‘modern and capable’ Russian armed forces on NATO’s doorstep is of grave concern,” Shoigu said, according to Interfax.

“This testifies to the fact that the Pentagon is working on scenarios for operations at the borders of our country.”

Shoigu did not say what he thought the U.S. military was planning.

Washington has been open about its deployment of additional troops to Central and Eastern Europe, including Poland and the Baltic states, on manoeuvres intended to signal its commitment to nervous NATO allies.

Since the collapse of Communism, NATO has expanded eastward to take in three former Soviet republics and a clutch of ex-communist states once dominated by Moscow, in what Russia views as a serious threat.

Shoigu said an “impartial dialogue” was needed with Russia’s Western partners on all aspects of relations, instead of “pumping up tension”.

His comments marked Moscow’s second forceful intervention in two days on the topic of relations with the United States.

In an interview published on Wednesday, President Vladimir Putin warned Washington that a “spat between major nuclear powers” over the Ukraine crisis could threaten global stability, and said Russia would not be “blackmailed” by Western sanctions.
