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?

Jewish Culture and Cognitive Partitioning

Gilad Atzmon Interviewed by E&R — gilad.co.uk Dec 17, 2014

jewishrootsE&R: In recent conferences with Alain Soral in Lyon and in Théâtre de la Main d’Or, you reflected on The Bell Curve, a book written by Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray. The book suggests that contemporary society is partitioned by cognitive ability. And for the obvious reasons, “Cognitive Elite” is most likely to get key cultural and political positions in society.
- To what extent can you explain the evolution of society during the past decades in the light of The Bell Curve?
Gilad Atzmon: It is indeed devastating to admit the prophetic qualities of Herrnstein’s study from the 1990’s in the context of the categorical cognitive portioning we witness in society around us. Due to some technological developments such as automation and computing and also, rapid evolvement of global capitalism, we have been seeing a vast decrease in the need for unskilled labour. At the same time, the demand for highly skilled professional and intellectually able people have been rising sharply and constantly.
This shift in society introduced a devastating social, economical, demographic and geographic partition between the able and the less able.  It is not anymore a  division between rich and poor or between the proletariat and the capital.  It is instead, a cognitive division that is widening up. Those who used to be the working class are now workless class, or ‘under class’ – at least, this is how sociologists prefer to call them. The new order created a clear demographic urban divide between the deprived, or shall we say less bright and the isolated quarters of the gifted few. This strict order is maintained by growing policing force that is becoming more and more brutal as we see in the USA at the moment.
We are dealing with a ticking bomb. However, Herenstein was clever to point out that being less bright, is in most case due to act of birth. An ethical society must create the necessary conditions that would allow the less bright to sustain life in dignified condition. I cannot see how such conditions can materialized in a globalized market. What we need and urgently, is to reinstate manufacturing.
E&R: Is there an intrinsic link between the above evolution and the transformation of western society into a Jewish ghetto?
Gilad Atzmon: In Lyon and in Paris I explored the Jewish European’s practice that led to the development of  a unique Jewish cognitive elite. For more than 1500 years European Jewish merchants married their daughters to young rabbinical protégées. This unique setting led to the emergence of a sophisticated Jewish elite that excelled in money and scholarship and centered largely in central Europe.
Strictly speaking Jews have been practicing cognitive partitioning for 1450 years before the West was introduced to the concept. It is hardly surprising that Jewish elite performs well within such conditions. But it is hardly a surprise that Heresntein, himself a Jew, was the one who produce the necessary social theory. It is more than likely that Herenstein himself, a superb scholar was a product of cognitive partitioning.
E&R: Many 18th and 19th century authors  (Augustin Barruel, John Robison, Maurice Talmeyr, etc…) pointed out the key role of Free Masonry and the Illuminati of Baviere in European revolutions and specifically the French revolution. Other authors like Pierre Hillard explain that Free Masonry is but an extension of The Synagogue in order to replace Goyim religions with a single Noahidic religion along with the establishment of a single World wide government. What do you think about this thesis?
Gilad Atzmon: I am not an historian and far from being an expert on Free Masons. However, there is no doubt that Jewish ID politics, Global Zionism, Neo-conservatism, Free Market and also Bolshevism are united in their attempt to impose a structured pseudo universal value systems in an attempt to set a phantasmic global rational that, always happens to serve some dark tribal interests. Whether, we burn Catholic churches in the name of the ‘Working Class Revolution’ and ‘anti Fascism’ (Spain 1936) or leave Iraq with almost 2 million dead in the name of ‘Moral Interventionism.’ The genocide is always justified by a ‘rational’ argument that that is shaped as a ‘human call.’
Noahisim is realized as a global call to accept monotheism and the seven laws of Noah. As such, the opposition to Noahisim should be realized as an Athenian necessary assault on  Jerusalem. The Athenian is the realization of the ethical as a moral judgment as opposed to the Jerusalemite ‘rule of law.’ For the Athenian, the moral shouldn’t be imposed by law for humanity is the ability to reach at the ethical by means of judgment and creativity. The Jerusalemite, on the other hand,  replaces the judgment with commandments and Mitzvoth i.e. restrictions and obedience. The Jerusalemite and the Noahist demand compliance, a regulated discourse that are subscribed to a given set of restrictions. We can already see an affinity between the Jerusalem/Noahism mode of thinking and the cultural Marxist fascination with correctness. The reason is obvious, Cultural Marxism, the dominant Left school of thought since the 1960’s is an extension of Jerusalem that led to the tragic ghettoization of the West. I guess that time is ripe for liberation.
E&R:  In the history of the 20th century Zionist movement, it’s rarely mentioned that when the British government proposed to the World Zionist Congress and Theodor Herzl the possible establishment of a Jewish settlement in Uganda, it was East European Zionists and Haïm Weizmann who lobbied restlessly against the offer. They pushed for the Jewish National Home to be established  in Palestine. Do you think that it suggests that contrary to the idea of a secular Jewish movement, Zionism is rooted in a literal interpretation of the Torah and Talmud?
Gilad Atzmon: The idea of Jewish secularism is in itself very problematic. As you may know, I argue that Judaism is only one Jewish religion amongst many. To be a Jew is to be able to transform different ideas into a Jewish religion. Enough was written about Holocaust being the most popular Jewish Religion. The Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz commented in the 1970s that Jews believe in many different things but all Jews believe in the Holocaust. However, in the 20th century alone we saw Communism, Egotism, Moral Interventionism, Zionism, ‘Anti’ all being celebrated as ‘Jewish secular’ and ‘universal’ religions.
What makes an idea into a Jewish religion then? The ability to facilitate a strong sense of choseness.
Now we are ready to tackle your question. Zionism, in its early days was a ‘Jewish secular anti Jewish’ movement. It promised to transform the Diaspora Jew into  a civilized being by means of ‘homecoming.’  Detesting the Diaspora Jewish identity, Zionism attempted to drift away from the Rabbinical attitude, it distanced itself from the Talmud and made the Hebrew Bible  into the forming text of the new Israelite. It basically made the Torah into a ‘land deed’ and God into an ‘estate agent.’
The Jews who followed Zionism at the time were partially naïve or idealists, however, there is no doubt that Zionism failed in its mission. The newly born Hebraic Jew has very little to contribute to the notion of civilization. Zionism failed completely in its attempt to drift away from the Jew. Why? Because Zionism was, after all a Jewish exclusive movement, it was tribal, racist and supremacist. It made the Jew celebrate choseness. It had all the necessary ingredients needed to establish a new Jewish religion. And here is a small fascinating anecdote. When Zionism was anti Jewish, it was a marginal movement, but as it became more and more Jewish, its popularity rose, it eventually became the  voice of world Jewry.
E&R:  You recently worked with Pink Floyd, you are featured on their new album The Endless River, tell us about it?
Gilad Atzmon: I was obviously honored to be called in for that session. Pink Floyd is what I listened to when I was at the age of my son. My son is 14 and whenever I pass near to his room I can hear the The Dark Side Of The Moon. Pink Floyd is still a unique radical voice, it sounds fresh and it appeals to young music lovers. There must be an eternal quality in the band’s epic simplicity.   Pink Floyd introduced a new aesthetics that shaped every active musician on this planet since the late 1960’s. To a certain extent, recording with the band closed a circle in my life. It was a home coning.
But I must also mention that my engagement with the band  was very limited in terms of time. It was only one session probably 3-4 hours. It was totally amazing to watch how David Gilmour works, how he hears things, his attention to details,  how much involve he is in the production of every note. I  was very lucky to experience  such a musical encounter.

Iran Requested Sydney Gunman’s Extradition 14 Year Ago

The Sydney siege that left three dead when security forces ended the stand-off in the early hours of Tuesday morning, has also left many unanswered questions..
In particular how a known criminal who had been charged as an accessory to the murder of his own wife and with a string of other offences against him, had been able to evade closer scrutiny. Especially as he had already been convicted of an earlier offence that the judge had described as “grossly offensive”.
At the time Haron Monis, the 50-year-old Iranian born Sydney gunman, had been convicted of sending abusive letters to the families of Australian servicemen killed in Afghanistan between 2007 and 2009.
Moreover as more facts emerge about Man Haron Monis still more questions are being asked.
Why, for instance, was Monis out on bail? Why was he not on a terror watch list? And how did he get his hands on a shotgun in a country that has tough restrictions on gun ownership?
Australia’s politicians are going through the motions of being outraged.
New South Wales Premier Mike Baird for example has said, “We are all outraged that this guy was on the street”.
So why the hell was he on the streets and armed with a shotgun too? Where and how did he get hold of one? These questions are all the more pressing as Iran’s Police Chief Brigadier General Esmayeel Ahmadi Moqaddam revealed on Tuesday that Tehran had earlier warned Australia about Haron Monis.

According to Iran’s chief of police Monis Haron had “a dark and long history of violent crime and fraud” in Iran where he had run a travel agency in 1996, before fleeing the country after having fleeced his customers of nearly $200,000.
However, Iran did more than just warn Australia about Haron Monis. It had in fact requested his extradition to face fraud charges but because there was no formal extradition agreement between the two countries Australia had rejected the request.
Instead Australia allowed Haron Monis to remain, even though the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils had warned that he “could be a fake deliberately stirring up anti-Islamic sentiment”.
With all this in mind we know the answer to at least some of the questions asked by Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott at a press conference on Tuesday:
“How can someone who has had such a long and checkered history not be on the appropriate watch list?” Abbott had asked. “And how can someone like that be entirely at large in the community?”
He was allowed to that’s how.
Abbott’s questions are only an act, a performance intended to deceive an unwitting public into thinking that he’s concerned about what happened. He’s not. The fact is that Australian authorities had already been warned that Haron Monis was “deliberately stirring up anti-Islamic sentiment”.
Iran had even requested his extradition yet Australia did absolutely nothing, even as the criminal charges against Haron Monis mounted.
This event was “allowed” to happen and shadowy figures in Australia’s covert intelligence service may have even helped facilitate it. Such as providing a convicted criminal on bail with a shotgun.
Just like the earlier massacre at Port Arthur, there are many questions that we can expect will remain unanswered. Port Arthur was used to effectively disarm the Australian public, just like the Hungerford shootings in Britain. What will the Sydney shootings be used for?

The plane that could fly ANYWHERE in four hours gets a step closer to blast off

Mark Prigg — Mail Online Dec 17, 2014

The Skylon air breathing rocket that could power a plane anywhere in the world in four hours and get to space in 15 minutes has moved a step closer to blasting off as a major project review said it was possible to operate the plane.

A feasibility study carried out earlier this year as part of the European Space Agency’s ‘New European Launch Service’ requirements for lowering the cost of European launch services by 2014 by using a radical new type of engine, have backed the plans – paving the way for it to blast off in 2019.

The engine is called Sabre, which stands for Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine, and was built by British firm Reaction Engines.

The €1M ESA-funded study identified proved that all current mission requirements for launches can be met.

It also said vehicles operated from Europe’s launch site in French Guiana, together with a reusable upper stage, can meet all Europe’s launch operator requirements.

Reaction Engines claims Sabre can be used to help accelerate existing aircraft up to five times the speed of sound and plans to use the technology on a unique 3,500mph ‘spaceplane’ called Skylon.

Now, it is believed the firm is putting the finishing touches to the plan to launch the aircraft – possibly in 2019.

It has been earmarked as a ‘high priority’ technology project by the UK government following the favourable technical reports from ESA’s propulsion experts.

‘For example, an aircraft carrying 300 passengers could go from Europe to Australia in about four hours,’ said Alan Bond, chief engineer, in a video.

The aircraft will be able to fly Mach 5 – five times the speed of sound – because of the engine, named Sabre, according to Bond.

Modern-day traditional aviation engines have to carry tanks of liquid oxygen when travelling at more than 1,900mph because they can’t ‘breathe’ oxygen.

Oxygen helps an engine to burn the fuel needed to power its propulsion.

Reaction Engine’s Sabre design uses a system of pipes, filled with helium.

The air passes through these pipes and the helium helps remove any heat and the oxygen is carried to the engine.

Once in space, the engine is capable of switching into rocket mode.

This means the craft can travel in orbit for around 36 hours and used to launch satellites, for example.

Last year the UK Government has announced plans to provide £60 million for a revolutionary new rocket engine capable of taking people to Earth’s stratosphere in just 15 minutes.

David Willetts, minister for universities and science, said the investment in Sabre would provide support at a ‘crucial stage’ to allow a full-scale prototype to be built.

‘We’re investing £60 million in this and we expect them to go out and find private support as well,’ Willetts told Radio Five Live.

‘But we’re backing this because it’s technology that has been tested in the lab, it’s been assessed by outside experts as right in principle.

‘Now it needs to be built on a full-scale prototype before it can get commercial.

‘We think it’s right to support it through that crucial stage.

A passenger version, called the Lapcat A2, is also under development.

The A2 vehicle, which is designed to be propelled by the Scimitar engine, has exceptional range (ca. 20,000 km both subsonic and supersonic) and is ‘able to service a large number of routes whilst simultaneously avoiding supersonic overflight of populated areas and the related sonic booms that can be heard on the ground,’ the firm says.

‘Its good subsonic performance enables it to service conventional subsonic overland routes.’

Skylon is likely to be viewed a competitor to Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic business, in which people can experience six minutes of weightlessness during a sub-orbital spaceflights.

Sir Branson and his Virgin Galactic company offer trips into space, that include six minutes of weightlessness, for around £121,000.

Skylon is expected to offer similar flights for cheaper, but has not announced any prices.

Figures from the company believe the Skylon space place could cut the cost of space launches by around 95 per cent.

The Sabre engine has taken part in 100 successful test runs and its design was recently validated by the European Space Agency to validate the design.

This means the craft can travel in orbit for around 36 hours and be used to launch satellites, for example.

Alan Bond, founder of Reaction Engines, told International Business Times: ‘Rockets are stuck in a rut. The weight problem means it costs a great deal of money to launch even the smallest satellite.

‘The basic problem is that when you suck air into an engine at high speed it instantly heats up to 1,000C – which is unmanageably hot.

‘The challenge was to cool it back down to 140C in just a hundredth of a second – the time it takes to pass through the engine.’

Bond continued: ‘It would allow us to launch satellites far more cheaply, to build space stations or to create orbiting solar arrays that would beam power to earth.

‘We could even construct spaceships for missions to other planets.’

Vaccine Pandemic Targets the Innocent

by Ken Anton — (henrymakow.com) Dec 16, 2014

49 dosed of vaccineDuring the last 30 years, the number of vaccines given to babies has quadrupled to over 40, and rising to over 70 by school age. This rise is coincident with a dramatic increase in the number of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Shockingly, it isn’t an increase in epidemic diseases causing this disaster but an increase in vaccinations, in effect – a pandemic of vaccines.
Vaccines were first developed to prevent epidemics like smallpox. The basic theory was to inject a small sample of an attenuated virus into the body to stimulate antibodies in an attempt to jumpstart an immune response. However, it has often been found that injection of live viruses, even attenuated ones can cause the disease the vaccine was intended to prevent (as admitted by Dr Jonas Salk with the polio vaccine). After years of mandating the cowpox vaccine in England and Japan, the death rates skyrocketed and the vaccines were eventually stopped.
In 1976, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) sponsored a national vaccination campaign for the previously unheard of Swine Flu; in fact, there had not been a single case in the country except amongst pigs. Some months after President Ford endorsed the campaign on CBS TV, thousands started feeling the toxic effects of the vaccine and claims of paralysis resulted in lawsuits and damages against the drug companies totaling $1.3 billion.
An even greater tragedy was the inadvertent inclusion of the SV40 cancer virus in the polio vaccines given to over 90 million Americans in the 1950′s and ’60′s. Even after the virus was discovered, the government kept it secret and the national vaccination campaign continued its course. Over recent decades, tumors bearing the SV40 signature have been discovered in the lungs, brains and lymph systems of thousands of cancer patients.
The US healthcare industry is run by a Medical Cartel encompassing Federal regulators (such as the FDA, NIH, CDC) and giant Pharmaceutical companies posting sales in excess of half a trillion dollars. Vaccines comprise a major portion of this cash flow. Both vaccines and cancer are vital to profitability regardless of how many people are actually cured or immunized.

Israel’s Arrow 3 missile shield fails interception test – sources

Reuters — Dec 16, 2014

Israel’s upgraded ballistic missile shield failed its first live interception test on Tuesday, security sources said, a fresh setback for the U.S.-supported system billed as a bulwark against Iran.

Operators of the Arrow 3 battery at Palmahim air base on the Mediterranean coast cancelled the launch of its interceptor missile after it failed to lock on to a target missile fired over the sea, the sources said.

“There was a countdown to the launch and then nothing happened,” one source told Reuters on condition of anonymity. “A decision was made not to waste the interceptor missile.”

Arrow is among several elements of an integrated Israeli aerial shield built up to withstand potential future missile and rocket attacks by Iran, Syria or their guerrilla allies in Lebanon and Gaza.

Israel’s Defence Ministry said that “within the framework of preparations for a future interception test, a target missile was launched and carried out its trajectory successfully”.

It later added, in a statement, that “the conditions had not been ripe for launching an interceptor missile”.

Arrow 3 interceptors are designed to fly above the earth’s atmosphere, where their warheads detach to become kamikaze satellites, or “kill vehicles”, that track and slam into the targets. Such high-altitude shoot-downs are meant to safely destroy incoming nuclear, biological or chemical missiles.

Arrow is jointly developed by state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and U.S. firm Boeing Co. Its earlier version, Arrow 2, was deployed more than a decade ago and officials put its success rate in trials at around 90 percent.

But an Arrow 2 interception test on Sept 9 ended inconclusively, the Defence Ministry has said. The U.S. journal Defense News later reported that the Arrow 2 interceptor missile had missed its target.

The Congressional report on torture confirms that Al Qaeda was not involved in the attacks of September 11

Thierry Meissan — Voltairenet.org Dec 16, 2014

Presentation of the report

Senator Dianne Feinstein. Click to enlarge

Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on December 9, 2014, released an extract of her classified report on the secret program of torture by the CIA [1]. Click to enlarge

The declassified portion corresponds to only one-twelfth of the initial report.

The report itself does not address the vast removal and sequestration system that the US Navy had put in place during the terms of President George W. Bush; a program that has led to worldwide kidnapping and sequestration of more than 80 000 people aboard 17 flat-bottomed boats stationed in international waters (these ships are: USS Bataan, USS Peleliu, USS Ashland, USNS Stockham, USNS Watson, USNS Watkins, USNS Sister, USNS Charlton, USNS Pomeroy, USNS Red Cloud, USNS Soderman, USNS Dahl MV PFC William B Baugh, Alex Bonnyman MV, MV Franklin J Phillips, MV Huage Louis J Jr, James Anderson Jr. MV). It is content to study 119 cases of human guinea pigs subjected to psychological experiments in Guantánamo and fifty secret prisons from 2002 to late 2009, a year after the election of Barack Obama.

The extracts of the report do not indicate the criteria by which these human guinea pigs were chosen. They merely state that each prisoner denounced the following, while indicating that the confessions were not coerced but learned. In other words, the CIA sought to justify its choices by making denunciations post.

In the initial report, the names of agents and contractors of the CIA involved have been replaced by pseudonyms. In addition, the declassified extracts were widely censored, mainly to clear the names of foreign accomplices of the CIA.

The content of the report

I read the entire 525 pages of excerpts from the public report. However, I am far from having drawn all the information because much research is needed to interpret the redacted passages.

Conditioning sessions were performed in fifty secret prisons under the responsibility of “Alec Station”, the unit of the CIA responsible for following Osama bin Laden. Infrastructure, staff and transport were the responsibility of the “Group of surrender and detention” of the CIA. The sessions were designed and built under the supervision of two contracting psychologists who formed a firm in 2005. The conditioning techniques employed were authorized at the highest level, without specifying that these tortures were intended to condition and not to extract information.

Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Justice John Ashcroft, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Colin Powell and CIA Director George Tenet attended meetings on this subject at the White House. They attended simulations at the White House and watched recordings of some sessions; records that were subsequently illegally destroyed. These meetings were obviously designed to “wet” these personalities, but it is not possible to determine which of them knew for what these techniques had been used.

However, in June 2007, Condoleezza Rice was personally briefed by the CIA contractor who supervised the experiments. The National Security Advisor authorized the continuation of the experiments, but diminished the number of authorized tortures.

The publicly available excerpts of the report contain a detailed analysis of how the CIA lied to the other branches of the Bush administration, the media and Congress.

The experiments of Professor Martin Seligman

The public extract from the report confirms that the CIA conducted experiments based on the work of Professor Martin Seligman (theory of “learned helplessness”). They were not intended to obtain a confession or information, but to inculcate a narrative or behavior in the subjects.

Most of the quotes that the press has extracted from the report are confusing. Indeed, the CIA speaks of “conditioning methods” under the name of “non-standard means of interrogation”). Out of context, we can assume that the term “interrogation” means the search for information while it actually denotes conditioning sessions undergone by the subjects.

All the names of the torturers were censored in the declassified extracts. However, we recognize Bruce Jessen under the pseudonym “Grayson Swigert” and James Mitchell as that of “Hammond Dunbar.” From April 12, 2002, the two men oversaw the program. They were physically present in secret prisons. In 2005, they organized themselves into a commercial company, Mitchell Jessen & Associates (referred to as “Company Y” in the report). From 2005 to 2010, their firm was paid $ 81 million. Subsequently, they were used by the Army to conduct a behavioral program on 1.1 million US soldiers.

In May of 2003, a senior CIA officer informed the Inspector General of the Agency that the work of Professor Seligman was based on torture practiced by North Vietnam to obtain “confessions for propaganda purposes”. The officer put the conditioning program into question. His information was not followed up on. Moreover, he made a small mistake by citing North Vietnam; Seligman’s research was based, like the North Vietnamese practices, on Korean work.

How torturers protected themselves

According to the Senate Committee, the CIA’s torture program was ordered by President George W. Bush, September 17, 2001, six days after the attacks. He had intended only to give extraordinary means to investigate the attacks of 11 September 2001. However, this program was immediately developed in breach of some President’s instructions. Therefore, from the attacks, the CIA, unbeknownst to the White House, sought to manufacture fraudulent evidence falsely attesting to the guilt of al-Qaeda.

President George Bush and parliamentarians were deceived by the CIA who
- got authorizations to practice certain forms of torture by masking their true purpose and
- misrepresented inculcated confessions as if they had been extracted under torture.

When , on September 6, 2006, President Bush admitted to the existence of the secret torture program of the CIA, he defended the practice, arguing that it had yielded information that saved lives. It was based on the false reports of the CIA and he was unaware that it manufactured evidence instead of searching for it. From that point, the Atlanticist media descended into barbarism and debated the merits of torture by presenting it as a necessary evil.

The torturers ensured legal cover for themselves by asking for permission to practice from the Department of Justice. But it took no action on the legality of the methods used (isolation, confinement in a small box, staged funeral, use of insects, etc.) and not on the program as a whole. Most lawyers allowed only particular postures ignoring their psychological consequences when combined. All authorizations were collected in August of 2002.

CIA officials who authorized these experiments have indicated in writing that the human guinea pigs were to be incinerated if they succumbed during conditioning or they should stay locked up for life if they survived.

“Confessions” fabricated

Let’s be clear: the Senate Committee does not say that the confessions of CIA detainees are legally incorrect because they were obtained under torture, it states that the CIA did not question the detainees, but it conditioned them to confess to acts of which they knew nothing. The Commission states that the CIA agents did not even look to see what the detainees had confessed during previous interrogations with the authorities who arrested them. In other words not only has the CIA not investigated whether al Qaeda was involved in the attacks or not, but its action had no other purpose than to generate false evidence attesting to the involvement of al-Qaeda in the attacks of September 11.

The Senate Committee did not discuss whether the confessions of the human guinea pigs were extorted or inculcated, but after explaining that supervisors were conditioning experts and not interrogators, the Committee explains at length the fact that none of these “confessions” has allowed us to anticipate anything. It demonstrates that the CIA lied by claiming that they had helped prevent further attacks. The Commission does not write that information on al-Qaeda in these confessions is fabricated, but notes that it all was verifiably false. In doing so, the Commission explicitly refutes the arguments that were used to justify torture and implicitly cancels the testimonies which were used to link al-Qaeda to the attacks of Sept. 11.

This report confirms, officially, several items of information we presented to our readers and that contradict and invalidate the work of Atlanticist think tanks, universities and the media since September 11, both in regard to the 2001 attacks themselves and with regard to al-Qaeda.

Following the publication of excerpts from this report, it appears that all the evidence cited in the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the September 11 attacks connecting these to al-Qaeda is false. There no longer exists to date a shred of evidence for attributing the attacks to Al Qaeda: There is no evidence that the 19 people accused of being airline pirates could have been found that day in one of the four planes, and none of the former members of Al Qaeda’s testimonials confessing to the attacks is genuine [2].

The report confirms what we revealed in 2009

In October 2009, I published a study on this subject in the Russian magazine Odnako [3]. I argued that Guantanamo was not an interrogation center, but a conditioning centre. Also I was putting personally calling Professor Seligman to task. A year later, the article having been translated into English,US psychologists led a campaign to ask Martin Seligman for an explanation. In response, he denied his role as a torturer and launched legal proceedings against myself and the Voltaire Network in both France and Lebanon where I lived. Ultimately, Professor Seligman instructed his lawyers to stop the procedures after we published one of his letters followed by an explanatory text. [4] Martin Seligman sued all those who treated this subject, such as Bryant Weich of the Huffington Post [5].

CIA Director John Brennan

John O. Brennan was deputy director of the CIA (2001-05) and, as such, director of the National Anti-Terrorist Centre. He was the main architect of the secret program for fabricating confessions under torture. In 2009, he became adviser to President Barack Obams on Homeland Security issues. He was appointed CIA director in 2013.

And now

Senator Diane Feinstein bravely managed to publish part of her report, despite the opposition of the current CIA director, John Brennan, formerly in charge of controlling the torture program.

President Barack Obama announced that he would not pursue any of the perpetrators of these crimes, while defenders of human rights are fighting to have the perpetrators brought to justice. It’s the least we can do.

However, the real issues are elsewhere: Why did the CIA committed such crimes? Why did it fabricate confessions to link al-Qaeda artificially to the attacks of September 11? And therefore, al-Qaeda being unrelated to the attacks of Sept. 11, who has the CIA therefore sought to protect?

Finally, the CIA program involved only 119 human guinea pigs, what do we know about the 80,000 secret prisoners of the US Navy?

Trapped in a terror trance

John Kaminski — Rebel News Dec 17, 2014

Trapped in a terror tranceIt is imperative that the American people elect a president in the 2016 election who is not recommended by the Jewish controlled mainstream media, and preferably, someone who has had no ties whatsoever with the current U.S. government.

If this fails to happen, and another manufactured pseudo personality with no moral or intellectual capabilities, someone very much like Obama, Bush or Clinton, is allowed to further sabotage America’s legal, financial and sociological structures, there will no longer be a United States, but only a collection of arbitrary national security prison sectors operating under the aegis of the fictitious North American Union, itself under the command of the United Nations, an organization created, manipulated and wholly owned by the worldwide Jewish monster.

The United States will then be forever lost in this fake terror slave state in which the government continues to fabricate false flag disasters to convince a gullible public that its guiding hand is the only way to prevent its citizens from succumbing to the evil deeds of anti-government “terrorists”, which events of the past three decades have proven to be government-contract employees such as Al-Qaeda and ISIL assigned to create conflict to achieve devious political objectives.

Every president in our lifetime — and long before — has been chosen to serve in the White House, not in the role of leader of the American people, but as the plantation foreman of the world overseers, the Jewish bankers who invented the Federal Reserve scam, coopted British royalty long before that, and has its poison tentacles plugged into the financial jugular veins of virtually every country on the planet.

It was Woodrow Wilson who was blackmailed into silent acquiescence for the bankers’ takeover in 1913, and Franklin Roosevelt who was put into place to start World War II.

It was Lyndon Johnson who arranged the murder of John F. Kennedy, and wiped out the last chance America had of derailing the Jewish Federal Reserve menace. Ever since that time, and long before, all the presidential candidates have been vetted by the Jew power brokers who run Wall Street, the TV networks, the oil companies, all working, not for the American people, but for the Jewish bankers who run the world.

And it was George W. Bush — that stupid, simpering wimp — who had no trouble looking the other way and acting dumb (it was no act) while Cheney and his friends from Israel engineered the greatest hoax of all time on 9/11. It didn’t matter to any of them how many American lives their power-grabbing caper cost. It only mattered how many more innocent people, all around the world, they would be able to kill once the trick was pulled and the people were deceived, made terrified by the thought that terrorists could blow up buildings in the middle of America’s biggest city.

And against all odds — thanks to the incredible stupidity of the American people, gulled into a false sense of omnipotent knowledge by a century of Jewish manipulation of American media and school curricula — the power brokers actually managed to come up with an even more despicably false president than Bush the Younger, and that would be a homosexual dope fiend with no college degrees and a past that was totally hidden from the credulous American public, too self-absorbed to realize they didn’t have another president on their hands, but a psychopathic assassin who attempted to obliterate the U.S. Constitution with the stroke of his Executive Order writing pen.

Barack Obama’s singular achievement, even more momentous than Dick Cheney’s demolition of the Twin Towers in New York City, was to claim he could kill anyone he wanted to in the name of the phony war on terror. Obama continued Bush’s war, and killed millions more in the name of the Jews who run America.

So now you see the importance not accepting any more criminal presidents put forth by mainstream media — Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan: they’re all infected by Jewish money, all programmed to sabotage the republic and enrich themselves at our expense.

The next generation has already been infected by this false history written by the Jews: Muslim terrorists who couldn’t fly Piper Cubs flew complex jetliners and knocked down the Twin Towers; an autistic boy killed 20 children with multiple weapons he didn’t have the strength to carry; it is against the law to say any less than 6 million Jews died in German concentration camps, and you will be put in jail if you do.

This is the poisoned, phony reality that has been brought to us by the Jews, a reality of no benefit to anyone but themselves as they faithfully follow their psychopathological programming from the Talmud which instructs them to kill or enslave all the non Jews of the world, programming that they followed to the letter in the Soviet Union when under Stalin and his fellow kosher sadists they murdered 100 million non Jews and which they now plan to follow in the United States by fomenting a race war, addicting everyone to poison food and medicine, and choking off the rest of the population by starvation when they crash the currency and funnel everyone into FEMA camps, and follow the formula Eisenhower used on the Germans shortly after World War II.

The only way to avoid this fate is to make damned sure that the next president is not the one recommended by Jewish media.

A real president of the United States would not allow his or her government to be dominated by citizens of another country working to destroy this one, namely dual Israeli-American citizens, of which everyone in the world knows which allegiance takes precedence. Remember, Jews are sworn to kill or enslave everyone in the world who is not Jewish.

The first thing the next president must do is convene a new inquiry about 9/11, an inquiry not dominated by Jewish functionaries and paid off politicians who are willing to allow Israelis to get away with anything and simultaneously not recognizing Palestinians as actual human beings. Judges who deliberately failed to charge Israeli operatives and Jewish businessmen who profited mightily from the deceptions would presumably be first in line to the gallows.

An independent investigation of 9/11 would find that most of the leading figures of the last two U.S. presidential administrations are definitely eligible for the death penalty because of the well known crimes they have committed — treason, accessory to mass murder, obstruction of justice in time of war, all death penalty offenses.

The second task of our next president would be to arrest every one involved with the Federal Reserve. The RICO acting of these men plus all members of Congress implicated in the 9/11 coverup — plus the RICO acting and trials for treason of ALL dual Israeli-American citizens — would instantly balance the federal budget when integrated with the shutdown of the Federal Reserve and the reorganization of the Treasury Department into the system of social credit that prohibited fractional reserve lending.

The third and perhaps most important task an independently elected president would have to at least attempt is something that was only partly achieved twice in history, and that would be to remove the Jews from any position of power that would give them any influence over expenditures of public money and molding of public opinion.

I would assume at this date that this would be an impossible task for any independently elected president free of Jewish influence to accomplish because the business and government establishment, plus law enforcement and military structure, are currently so overwhelmingly dominated by Jewish power brokers who would effectively resist such measures to restore genuine honor and integrity to the American government.

But these are just preliminary goals for the younger generation of Americans, currently trapped in an avalanche of false information and phony propaganda to consider if they harbor any aspirations toward living in a functional republic not dominated by bogus information furnished by Jewish homicidal maniacs.

America is now trapped in a terror trance in which the alleged enemies of peace are actually hired by Israeli and American government sources to pose as enemies against which U.S. and allied forces and weapons can be deployed, resulting in astronomical profits for those who fabricate the reasons for wars, and waste millions of lives simply to line their own pockets.

Any presidential candidate promoted by mainstream media will be a hypocritical killer of this very type. Supporting any one of them will make you a person just as disgusting and soulless as they are.

The only way to save the world and end the terror is to get the Jews out of government. After what just happened in Gaza, the Ukraine, and happens every day in Washington, this should be very obvious by now.

Do we finally have proof of life on Mars?

Jonathan O’Callaghan — Daily Mail Dec 16, 2014

In the past few months, conclusive evidence has been found that Mars once had water on its surface, but one greater question remains: Was there, or is there still, life on Mars as well?

Scientists may be on the brink of answering that question with an equally conclusive ‘yes’, as convincing evidence has been detected by Nasa’s Curiosity rover.

An instrument on the rover identified spikes of methane that scientists believe may have come from bacteria-like organisms on the surface – and it could be the first alien life ever detected.

Previous satellite observations have detected unusual plumes of methane on the planet.

But none of these previous readings are as extraordinary as the sudden ‘venting’ measured at Gale Crater, where evidence suggests water once flowed billions of years ago.

Curiosity landed in the 96 mile-wide (154km) crater in August 2012 and has been exploring the region ever since.

Recently, Nasa reported that Gale contained the remains of an ancient freshwater lake where there may have been a hospitable environment for life in the distant past.

The new discovery, reported in the journal Science, followed studies of gas samples by Curiosity’s Tunable Laser Spectrometer (TLS) – an instrument that uses intense light to carry out chemical analysis.

It revealed a low background level of methane, which spiked 10-fold over a period of just 60 Martian days.

In four sequential measurements, Curiosity showed the methane level soaring from about 0.69 parts per billion by volume (ppbv) to 7.2 ppbv.

The spikes occurred within 655ft to 985ft (200 to 300 metres) of each other and less than 0.62 miles (1km) from where the lower readings were detected.

By the time Curiosity had travelled a further kilometre, the higher methane levels had disappeared.

In their paper, the US scientists led by Dr Chris Webster, from Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, wrote: ‘The persistence of the high methane values over 60 sols (Martian days) and their sudden drop 47 sols later is not consistent with a well-mixed event, but rather with a local production or venting that, once terminated, disperses quickly.’

The wind direction indicated a source to the north of the rover.

Life is the chief producer of methane on Earth, but there are many non-biological processes that can also generate the gas.

The low background level of methane detected by Curiosity can be explained by the sun’s rays degrading organic material possibly deposited by meteors, said the Nasa scientists.

But the spikes of methane required an additional source, which was unlikely to be a recent impact by comet or asteroid.

Such an object would have had to measure several metres across and would have left a large crater – no sign of which was visible.

The short time-scale of the methane spikes did not suggest that the gas was released from volcanic deposits trapped in ice, called clathrates either. Nor did it appear to come from the release of gaseous methane that had become bound to the soil.

The Nasa authors are cautious about jumping to conclusions, but conclude that ‘methanogenesis’ – the formation of methane by microbial bugs known as methanogens – may be one answer to the riddle.

They wrote: ‘Our measurements spanning a full Mars year indicate that trace quantities of methane are being generated on Mars by more than one mechanism or a combination of proposed mechanisms – including methanogenesis either today or released from past reservoirs, or both.’

Gale Crater, on the Martian equator, was created when a large meteor struck the planet 3.5 billion to 3.8 billion years ago.

At its centre is a high mountain, named Mount Sharp, that rises 18,000ft (5,500 metres) above the crater floor.

Flowing water appears to have carved channels in the sides of the mountain and the crater walls.

Another major discovery by Curiosity was that of water bound in the fine-grained soil within the crater.

Each cubic foot of Martian soil was found to contain around two pints of water, not freely accessible but attached to minerals.

The rover has reached the base of Mount Sharp and over the coming months will begin a slow climb.

Scientists are especially keen to explore the mountain because its sedimentary layers provide tantalising snapshots of Martian history.

The question of whether there is, or was, life on Mars may finally be answered by Esa’s ExoMars mission, which will land a 300kg (660lbs) rover on the Red Planet in 2019.

ExoMars will be equipped with a 6.5-foot (two metres) drill and the ability to detect biomarkers of life. It will not be heading for Gale Crater, however. Because it will land with less precision than Curiosity, the crater and its mountain are considered too potentially hazardous.

Truth In Berlin

By Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk Dec 16, 2014

Once again, ‘scandal in Germany.’ This time the ultra Zionist AJC (American Jewish Committee) is empowered to define the boundaries of an exchange in Germany about Palestine and the hope for peace in the Middle East.

Truth in Berlin

The Jerusalem Post reported yesterday that Germany’s Family Ministry and the Berlin Senate are engulfed in an anti-Israel scandal because they provided some funding for the three-day Canaan conference that included a group that had previously hosted a speaker who called for an “end of Jewry” and claimed that “Zionists are racists.”
If anyone still harbored some remote doubts about racism and the ‘Jews only State’, such doubts evaporated last month when the Israeli cabinet approved Israel’s National Bill, a law that specifically affirms the primacy of Jews in Israel.
And who was it who called for the “end of Jewry?” The AJC and the Jpost blame me. These people must be mad – would I call for the demise of my favourite intellectual pets, i.e., the Jews? Such a tragedy would sentence me to spiritual death. I will never let it happen. I need the Jews alive and kicking and I need their lobbies to keep celebrating their symptoms as they did this week in Berlin, so I have something juicy to write about every morning when I awake.
According to the Jpost, Jewish organisations were devastated to find out that the Canaan conference invited Cafe Palestine Freiburg because it is infested with those who are “stoking modern anti-Semitism.” Apparently, the ‘anti-Israel critic Gilad Atzmon, delivered a 2011 lecture for Cafe Palestine Freiburg and called for a process of dismantling Jewish ideology.’
This part is correct. In 2011 in Freiburg, I argued that in order to make Israel into an ethical ‘state of its citizens,’ Jewish ideology, which sustains and promotes Jewish racial exceptionalism must be abolished. Are not Germany, Britain and France states of their citizens? Apparently not. The Cannan conference, although it was in full compliance with German law, and largely funded by the German Family Ministry, has been harshly abused by the Ministry due to pressure mounted by an American Jewish Lobby group.
But before we move forward I urge you to watch the following 2011 Freiburg talk. Try to detect a call “for the end of Jewry.” All I find in this talk is a desperate call for Israel to become a state of its citizens, drifting away from Jewish exeptionalism.


Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qW0nLtxSPuw


Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gnKYWCR-2g

But I am only part of this story. The Zionist campaign is now focused on Dr. Gabi Weber, the fierce German activist who founded Café Palestine Freiburg and sits beside me in the above video (translating).
Dr Gabi Weber

Dr Gabi Weber

In the last few years, Café Palestine Freiburg has become a hub of vibrant intellectual and humanitarian activity. Israel and its Lobby are worried about Dr. Weber’s success; they cannot control the Cafe via the usual channels (George Soros, Open Society Institute, NGO’s etc). The lousy pro Israeli journalist David Harnasch, who has written about ‘modern German anti-Semitism,’ termed Cafe Palestine Freiburg “Cafe Jew hatred.” In late 2013, Joachim Bruhns, of the Socialist Initiative Forum, another Israeli Hasbara front, described Cafe Palestine’s co-founder Dr. Gabi Weber as a “helper of neo-Nazis.” This despite the fact that the vast majority of speakers at Café Palestine have been Jews and Israeli dissenters.
It is worth pointing out that Dr. Weber and Café Palestine’s criminal record is nonexistent. Not once has Dr. Weber or the café been so much as questioned by the authorities on issues of anti-Semitism or any form of incitement of hatred.
In the next paragraph the Jpost reveals who dictates German Government actions. “Deidre Berger, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Berlin office, said: “whoever advocates a boycott of Israel cannot be a partner for peace…” She called on the Family Ministry and the Berlin Senate to “review their funding policies.”
Peculiar: law-abiding German citizens are now subject to pressure mounted by a Jewish American Lobby. Germany’s Family Ministry surrendered to the Jewish lobby group immediately and shamelessly. But there is something they probably don’t know.
In recent years Dr. Weber won two significant court cases against the mayor of Freiburg and Freiburg University. Both attempted to stifle discussion of Palestine in a similar manner but saw their argument collapse in the house of law. Knowing Dr. Weber well, I am pretty sure that Germany’s Family Ministry will regret its cowardly actions very soon.

What’s behind the astonishing rise of an anti-Islam movement in Germany?

Albert Pike and his alleged prediction of WWIII. Click to enlarge

The Washington Post omits to mention the obvious: that the Illuminati and their agents in the intelligence services, undercover and in the media, are helping to fuel the rise of anti-Islamic sentiment.
The Washington Post pointedly omits to mention the plans of General Albert Pike. In a letter to Giuseppe Mazzini, dated the 15th of August 1871, Pike had broadly outlined his long-term plan for the seizure of global power. Crucial to this was this was the fomenting of conflict between the nominally Christian West and the Islamic world
Naturally there will be those who try to dismiss this letter as a forgery but it was already being referred to by Canadian Intelligence office William Guy Carr in the 1950s.
That’s long before the rise of modern militant Islam. Nor should we ignore the weight of evidence that militant movements like Islamic State are being sponsored by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, all supposedly Western aligned nations. Or that the head of Islamic State Al Baghdadi is reported to be a Mossad trained agent.
None of this warrants a mention in the following. But don’t be surprised if government operatives are helping to promote what is reported in the following article and in their way helping in the fulfillment Albert Pike’s plan. The Western public is being woefully deceived: the principle agents in this deception are the very agencies that claim to be fighting terror, working hand-in-glove with corporate media.

What’s behind the astonishing rise of an anti-Islam movement in Germany?

Carrying German flags and banners saying “We’re against religious fanaticism,” an increasing number of German protesters, known as the Pegida movement, have taken to the streets in recent weeks to voice their concerns about an influx of Muslim immigrants.

On Monday, 15,000 came to the eastern German city of Dresden to march through the historic city center. Anti-Islam protesters have been chanting “We are the people!” – a slogan that was used in 1989 when eastern Germans rallied to bring down the communist regime. The movement’s members have repeatedly emphasized that they are not extremists, but civil rights groups are accusing them of being “pinstriped Nazis.”

In a country that is still haunted by World War II, the protests have come as a shock to many politicians and left-leaning activists. In an interview on Monday, Germany’s justice minister Heiko Maas called the movement “a shame for Germany” and warned of a new “level of escalation of agitation against immigrants and refugees.” About 6,500 human rights campaigners joined two separate counter-demonstrations on Monday that were organized in opposition to the anti-foreigner movement.

The protests have revealed a deep divide between many citizens and their political elite. Half of Germany sympathizes with the anti-Islam protesters, according to a ZEIT ONLINE-YouGov poll that was released on Monday.

Supporters can be found all over the country, but protests in western Germany have so far failed to attract large numbers of supporters. In eastern Germany, however, the rallies against immigrants have quickly gained steam – despite the fact that only few foreigners currently live there.

Now put Blair and Straw on trial for torture, says diplomat who was fired after he warned about torture

Craig Murray — Mail Online Dec 14, 2014

How former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and Tony Blair might look if they are ever called to trial. Click enlarge

How former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and Tony Blair might look if they are ever called to trial. Click enlarge

In the summer of 2004, I warned Tony Blair’s Foreign Office that Britain was using intelligence material which had been obtained by the CIA under torture. Two months later I was sacked as the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan on the orders of Downing Street, bringing to an end my 20-year diplomatic career.

When I then went public with the news that Uzbek territory was part of a global CIA torture programme, I was dismissed as a fantasist by Mr Blair’s henchmen. Now finally, a decade later, I have been vindicated by last week’s shocking Senate Intelligence Committee report.

Over 500 pages it details the CIA’s brutal abuse of Al Qaeda suspects, who were flown around the world to be tortured in a network of secret prisons. One of these was in Uzbekistan, where the US had an air base.

The CIA programme included both torture they conducted themselves and torture conducted for them by allies. Shamefully, the torture-by-proxy details remain classified to protect America’s gruesome ‘allies’.

The CIA were flying people to Uzbekistan to be tortured, usually via their secret prison at Szymany in Poland. The Uzbeks were doing the actual torture, sometimes with CIA members in the room.

Aside from the moral dimension, the Senate report confirmed my repeated view that intelligence gleaned from torture is useless. When I was Ambassador, one secret file I was sent contained CIA information which named a member of Al Qaeda. The man turned out to be a Jehovah’s Witness.

In 2003, I attended a meeting at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), where I was told by officials that it was not illegal for us to use intelligence from torture as long as we did not carry out the torture ourselves. I was also told at the meeting that this intelligence was ‘useful’ – and that policy came directly from the then Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.

I have a copy of a note signed by the Foreign Secretary’s private secretary which says that Mr Straw had seen the minutes of the meeting and thought it had been ‘handled well’.

I was specifically told by a very senior FCO manager that there was a deliberate policy of not writing down anything about this because there should not be evidence of the policy.

Meanwhile, the FCO was churning out speeches which claimed we opposed it. On July 22, 2004, I sent that telegram to Mr Straw complaining about the fact we were using intelligence material obtained under torture and passed to us via the CIA.

HIS silence in response didn’t surprise me. I was gone soon afterwards. Strange then that when he sacked me – on the express orders of Mr Blair’s Downing Street, I was later informed – Mr Straw claimed to Parliament that the existence of a CIA torture programme was only ‘Mr Murray’s opinion’.

He claimed the Government knew nothing of any torture by the CIA, and still today denies knowing anything about it.

My career had been destroyed by politicians who wanted to hide their complicity in human rights abuses.

To complete the process, they then trashed my reputation with smears: the stressful end to my first marriage, and the start of my relationship with my current wife, Nadira, found its way into the press in the most lurid terms. False stories about my drinking and fabrications about sleeping with prostitutes also appeared. All of this was to distract from the truth: that hundreds of British members of the security services, diplomats and civil servants co-operated with the CIA torture programme.

It is a terrible indictment of our society that I was the only person in a position of authority who was trying to stop it.

Now that I have been vindicated, it is time for a formal Government apology for the way I was treated. But it is not just past UK governments which were complicit in both the torture and the cover-up. For the past year, the British Ambassador in Washington and his staff have regularly been lobbying the US authorities not to reveal facts about the UK’s involvement in the CIA torture programme.

That lobbying has been successful, and is one of the reasons that most of the Senate report has not been published.

The British Government continues to cover up the truth even today. We should not forget that the climate of public and media opinion which made it possible for this US Senate report to be published at all was generated entirely by the work of whistleblowers. I was the first of these, but at least I remain at liberty: two subsequent whistleblowers – soldier Chelsea Manning and CIA agent John Kiriakou – are serving long stretches in prison.

Although it is in no way comparable to the horrifying abuses suffered by the torture victims, we truth-tellers have also been through hell.

It is very strange to now hear Westminster politicians calling for a judicial inquiry into our involvement in rendition.

There has already been one, headed by retired judge Sir Peter Gibson. He started to gather evidence, and ordered the Foreign Office to give me full access to all the classified documentation on the subject from my time as Ambassador. Indeed, Gibson gave every appearance of being a man of integrity, appointed to lead an investigation into governmental wrongdoing.

It was therefore no surprise when the Gibson inquiry was cancelled and his duties handed to politicians on the Commons Intelligence and Security Committee. Incredibly, its members include Hazel Blears, one of Tony Blair’s Ministers at a time when the Government had a policy of using intelligence from torture. She is therefore investigating herself.

No wonder a source on the Intelligence and Security Committee told journalists last week that they would only scrutinise members of the security services, not the politicians who instructed them.

There is, at least, an ongoing Metropolitan Police inquiry, called Operation Lydd, into whether the criminal law was broken by Britons implicated in the rendition programme.

Complicity in torture is a crime in the UK. I have given sworn evidence to the detectives involved, who recently passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Astonishingly, at the CPS the dossier has been given not to the branch that deals with misconduct in public office, but to the counter-terrorism division. This focuses attention away from the crime of torture and on to the alleged criminal intentions of the actual victims of the crime they are supposed to be considering.

The police think it will all be quietly swept under the carpet by the CPS.

Recent scandals, such as the alleged cover-up of an Establishment paedophile ring, highlight the apparent impunity of our political class in the face of the honest forces of law and order.

We don’t need an inquiry into British complicity in torture. We need a trial. And it should be Tony Blair and Jack Straw in the dock.

Robots’ drones to boost Russian 5th gen nuclear subs’ arsenal

Russia Today — Dec 15, 2014

Russian submarine (Varshavyanka class). Click to enlarge

Russia’s fifth generation nuclear submarines will be armed with robots and underwater drones in addition to conventional weaponry.

“The new [fifth] generation [of submarines] will be equipped with both contemporary weapons and those currently being developed,” Nikolay Novoselov, deputy CEO of the Malakhit design engineering bureau, told RIA-Novosti.

“We’re talking about battle robots which can be released by the submarine, and a type of underwater drone,” he explained.

According to the designer, the robots would be disposable or returnable of military, surveillance or communications purpose.

“They’ll be released by the submarine and stay offline before being remotely activated on command. It will give the submarine time to leave the area, with the drone staying in place to maintain a semblance that the submarine is still there,” he said.

Novoselov stressed that developing robots for submarines isn’t an exclusive Russian field, as “the whole world is moving in this direction.”

However, it’ll take some time for underwater drones to become common practice, because at present the Russian military is being equipped with fourth generation subs.

This year, the St. Petersburg-based Malakhit design engineering bureau completed the 20-year construction of the Severodvinsk multipurpose nuclear submarine, which has already joined the naval fleet.

Severodvinsk is the flagship of the Yasen-class submarines, which will become the backbone of the Russian Navy’s conventional submarine force.

In addition to 533mm torpedoes, Yasen-class submarines can fire cruise missiles from its eight vertical launching systems. They can also carry Onyx and Kalibr supersonic anti-ship missiles.

The subs have a submerged displacement of 13,800 tons and can travel up to 30 knots (56 kmh) under water.

The crew totals some 64 sailors, including 32 officers, proof of the highly-automated level of its functions.

Russia is currently building three more Yasen-class submarines, with three more contracted for 2015.

Illuminati Behind Popularity of Tattoos?

Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I [am] the “I AM”. Leviticus 19:28
(David Richards, 25, teaches English in Mongolia. From Jan 2013)

David Richards — henrymakow.com Dec 15, 2014

Returning to England after spending 2 ½ years abroad, I noticed many more people were displaying tattoos. A decade ago there were 300 tattoo parlors in Britain, now there are more than 1,500. The best estimate says 20% of Brits have a tattoo. The picture is the same across the Atlantic; 14% of all Americans have a tattoo, including 36 % of all 18-25 year olds and 40% of 26-40 year olds.
Clearly, the Illuminati are promoting tattoos. Nearly every star is covered in them. A good example is Justin Bieber who has nearly a dozen tattoos despite being only 20-years-old. He has an image of Moloch on his arm.
What is the purpose of this campaign? On one level, it is part of the agenda to corrupt and degrade.
porn girl tatt2The Illuminati use tattoos as a method of branding. This is seen by how they mark sex slaves. Many girls in porn movies have tattoos of Illuminati symbols, like this girl (left) in a video on a major porn site. Girls in different films have tattoos of Monarch butterflies and satanic symbols.
However, I believe the primary purpose is to prepare the public for RFID implants and brainchips. To desensitize us to being branded, they are encouraging us to brand ourselves. That’s why they promote tattoos. This desire to brand is also behind the push for brain chips, which is why people call them the ‘mark of the beast’!
The big players of the transhumanism movement talk about the need to desensitize the public to implants. Dr. Keith Bolton, chief technology officer at industry leader Applied Digital Systems, said at a meeting in 2000:
“Before there may have been resistance, but not anymore. People are getting used to implants. New century, new trend. We will be a hybrid of electronic intelligence and our own soul.’
The desensitization campaign is multi-faceted, including having characters in TV shows with brain implants, like the Borg Collective in Star Trek who are equipped with brain implants that connect them to a collective consciousness, to the push for people to have their pets micro chipped.
Incredibly, the British government has announced that all owners who fail to chip their pet will be fined £500 ($750.) I believe tattooing is promoted because, like an RFID implant, it involves painful intrusion into the skin.
A few years ago the University of Illinois announced they had created an electronic skin tattoo with RFID technology. Considering how ‘cool’ tattoos are, how many young people would think twice about getting one?

What is it about Iran that scares the US?: On Tehran’s military capabilities

Iran announced its first live test of the air defense system, Bavar 373, which is said to be similar to, or an alternative to the S 300 Russian system. This piece of news appeared two weeks ago but did not get adequate media coverage. Specialists and other concerned parties, however, read it with great interest.

Iranian media outlets broadcast the first picture of one of the Bavar missiles, which greatly resembles the missile used in the S 300 system. This test represents the beginning of completing the last phase in the Iranian air defense system, which consists of several systems with multiple ranges. Some of them are revamped old US weapons while others are clones of foreign radars and missiles and some are a combination of the two.

Estimating Iran’s military power is a very difficult task. Many of its projects are shrouded in secrecy and are revealed only after their completion, while the defense ministry’s propaganda adds to the mystery. Some research and experimental models are showcased as though they are in the production phase, and mixing actual achievements with propaganda is designed to mislead. The Iranian press often misinterprets military statements and the media, in general, is known for its ignorance of military issues and its inadequate coverage of these matters, thus adding to the confusion.

What we do know is that the United States and Israel were seriously planning a war against Iran, or at least, an air campaign to hit the Iranian nuclear program and other military targets since the US invasion of Iraq. One of the largest energy corporations in the world, received Russian intelligence reports in 2006 confirming that the war was going to take place in the coming months. What is it that postponed this war all these years, making it an unlikely scenario and undesirable for the US army despite Israeli objections?

The terms of the game

Iran Air Force Mig-29 over Tehran. Iraqi Air Force Mig-29s were among many Iraqi planes flown to Iran to escape destruction during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Iran impounded the planes and pressed some into service in the Iranian Air Force in lieu reparations for Iraq's attacking Iran at the outset of the First Persian Gulf War 1980-1988. Click to enlarge

Iran Air Force Mig-29 over Tehran. Click to enlarge

If the goal is to compare military capabilities between Iran and the US, the answer would be easy and clear. There is no parity between the resources and capabilities of the two countries, neither in terms of budget nor technological level, preparation or equipment. Most of the Iranian tanks are old, older than the Iranian Revolution. The same is true when it comes to the air force. The last serious military deal that Iran signed with another country to modernize its army was in the early 1990s, when it bought a number of T-72 tanks and MiG-29 planes from Russia, in addition to two submarines. These are the “newest” imported weapons in Iran’s traditional arsenal today.

The confrontation with Iran does not involve a direct war across the borders of the two countries. As a matter of fact, the protagonist has to send its forces to an area that is thousands of kilometers away from the US mainland, deploy them in flying distance from Iran, secure safe routes for air refueling and seize control of a large lake – the Arabian Gulf – whose width in many places is less than 200 kilometers (124 miles) and depth less than 50 meters (164 feet). Taking advantage of the circumstances of the Iraq-Iran War, the US navy entered the Gulf in the 1980s, wielding its influence by force after a series of skirmishes that turned into a quick war against the Iranian navy that the US forces easily won (Operation Praying Mantis). Iraq itself was not happy with this US expansion even though it was directed at its enemy. In 1987, an Iraqi jet aircraft hit the American frigate USS Stark with a French-built Exocet missile killing over 35 Americans.

The Iraqi government said the attack was a mistake but many analysts believed that the missile was an Iraqi message aimed at discouraging the US from having a military presence in this strategic area, especially that there were claims that the pilot was not punished, but rather promoted after the “incident.” (In 2011, the US forced Iraq to set up a US$ 400 million fund to pay compensation for the victims of USS Stark and American prisoners of war from the multiple US invasions of Iraq). During the Gulf War in 1991, the US military presence became firmly-established with permanent bases and a comprehensive support structure after signing semi-colonial “protective” agreements with all the countries on the Western bank of the Gulf.

In this sense, there is a similarity between Iran and China. Both countries are focused on a specific military goal, namely, confronting a Western attack supported by local allies and preventing it from seizing full control of the maritime area that surrounds the country, blockading and hitting it.

The difference is that China expects a limited, though violent, confrontation in the South China Sea in the context of competing for influence. China knows that such a clash can not develop into an invasion of the Chinese mainland or an attack to overthrow its regime and destroy its economy, given the nuclear deterrent that China has and Iran does not yet. This is exactly the scenario that the US wants to preempt. If the conditions of the confrontation were different and the Gulf was not an expected theater of war, most of the Iranian weapon systems would not have constituted a threat to US forces. Iran, for instance, focused on importing modern anti-ship missiles from China (C-801 and C-802), developing them and building new models whose range exceeds 200 kilometers (124 miles) and with several guidance systems.

This would not mean much if the confrontation were to take place in the high seas where aircraft carriers and the destroyers accompanying them enforce a prohibition area that extends to more than 400 kilometers (248 miles) in all directions, not allowing a boat or a plane to cross through, let alone fire missiles at US ships. In the Gulf, however, the situation is different. The distance between the Iranian mainland and the base of the Fifth Fleet in Bahrain is less than 190 kilometers (118 miles). This means that any US ship in the Gulf lies within the range of missiles fired by speedboats and aircrafts in addition to the a large number of mobile terrestrial platforms deployed along the eastern coast of the Gulf.

In the same sense, small submarines – dozens of which are produced by Iran – have no value whatsoever in international waters where US submarines and airplanes roam in “hunting teams” to subdue these kinds of threats. But like a naval mine, they become a scary weapon in the shallow Gulf that is full of targets, where the sonar does not work effectively. Besides, the huge US submarines cannot operate or dive in most areas of the Gulf.

The same scenario applies to the Iranian missile arsenal and US bases in nearby countries. Some Iranians say that the Fateh-110 precision missile of which Iran produced at least three generations so far is called the “Lebanon missile” among Iranians because its range and characteristics suit the Lebanese terrain as though it were designed for it. But Fateh also constitutes a threat to US bases in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia (in addition of course to oil facilities and the oil export ports near these bases). In addition to Fateh, Iran has a huge number of Shahab-2 and Shahab-3 missiles after years of production, which can be utilized in major confrontations to take down missile defenses, whether in the Gulf or Afghanistan.

War without borders

There are two factors that summarize the reasons behind US reluctance to engage in a military adventure against Iran. First, the difficulty of confining the war and keeping it within the limits desired by the US. Second, because the war against Iran threatens to be the first confrontation that the US military wages under the conditions of “modern war,” meaning an adversary whose military does not belong to the previous century, but rather knows ahead of time American strengths and prepares technical means to neutralize them. In other words, war against Iran will not be a walk in the park and a chance to showcase superior US technology. The US military knows that it will enter an arena where the GPS system will be jammed and drones may not be able to contact their bases via satellite. The US may actually be deprived of space and electronic reconnaissance, all of which are central pillars of the current US war doctrine. It is almost impossible for example to use far-range ammunition in the absence of the GPS system. The only alternative is to guide through laser or cameras which requires drones to be near their targets and therefore within the enemy’s air defense range.

These fears are not exaggerations or mere assumptions. They are all based on experience and on proven capabilities in the battlefield. For example, during the same month that Iran was able to control an “invisible” US spy plane, bringing it down and capturing it last year, Americans were surprised when Iranians “blinded” a spy satellite that was passing over Iran through a laser burst that most likely hit its lense. The lesson from the two incidents is that Iran possesses radars and means of reconnaissance that allow it to track invisible drones and low-orbiting satellites. For war planners, this raises a lot of concern. The US B-2 Bomber, expected to spearhead any air campaign, is slow, unable to manoeuvre and depends almost entirely on its radar-invisible technology to sneak into a hostile airspace and strike its air defenses. When Iran proves its ability to conquer radar-invisible technology, the most expensive bomber in the world – and the US owns less than 20 versions of them – becomes an easy target for air defenses.

The US got used to third world armies that threaten and huff and puff but have fragile structures with a lot of propaganda and no military effectiveness. The performance of Iranian-supported militias in Lebanon, Gaza and Iraq, however, draws a distinction between propaganda and reality and provides an undeniable example of the level of combat that any invading power will face. When the Israeli navy ship Hanit was hit in 2006 with an Iranian-made missile, many experts say, the war on Iran was postponed for years. Arabs were the first to introduce anti-ship missiles in military history when two Egyptian missile boats managed to sink the Israeli bomber Eilat with old Russian Styx missiles in October 1967. Hitting Eilat inaugurated a new era in naval warfare around the world as military experts realized that these new missiles enable a small boat to destroy much bigger ships. Arabs, however, were not able to repeat this feat against Israel for 40 more years, until 2006. The same thing applies to the IEDs that terrified US troops in Iraq, the tactics that debilitated the Israelis in Lebanon and Gaza and the performance of Iranian-trained forces in Syria.

Finally, the conditions of the confrontation prevent the US from planning a limited or containment strike that would disable Iran from retaliating. As Seymour Hersh wrote in a report about this issue years ago, US military officials discovered that limiting the war against Iran, the way it happened in Iraq in 1991, is impossible. It is not possible to hit Iranian nuclear sites without securing US air bases in the region. This requires hitting Iranian missile platforms but this could not be done while the Gulf is teeming with anti-ship missiles. Hence, little by little, the targets of the US campaign began to expand to include invading the Iranian coast and destroying a large number of military facilities in the country. The quick air campaign turned into a comprehensive war plan with hundreds and thousands of targets. US generals went as far as seriously contemplating using tactical nuclear bombs to quell Iranian defenses according to Hersh’s sources.

Therefore, the war against Iran becomes a risky proposition. Some American researchers, especially those close to Israel, tried to encourage the US government to hit Iran, insisting that the Iranian defenses will not pose a threat to the superior US fleet. But no country in the world will go to war if the cost of a mistake or misjudgement might be sinking an aircraft carrier or destroying bases that house thousands of US troops. The high stakes lead to reluctance. Postponing the war on Iran made it harder and more complicated. Hitting Iran in 2004 was easier than in 2007. And the war on Iran in 2007 is incomparable to a war that might break out today because Iran has developed new weapons and capabilities and its production lines worked for years to produce and accumulate missiles whose effectiveness and precision improved every year. (In the past few years, Iranians started replacing the old military warheads on Shabab-3 for example with new warheads that are more effective and precise). That is why the Israelis were rushing the Americans to hit Iran arguing that delaying the confrontation will make it harder and more complicated until it becomes impossible. The Iranians began showcasing the cruise missiles they are designing, which, like previous developments, will introduce a new element that will change the equation entirely as soon as they enter into service.

An example of Iran’s preparations: Unveiling stealth aircrafts

Third world countries can buy the best technology manufactured by the West or Russia and it will not be of concern to the US as one – less effective – radar manufactured by the country itself with its own capabilities. The characteristics and specifications of all the systems that are exported are known and the electronic means aboard planes are pre-programmed to monitor enemy radar waves, imitate and jam them. What scares an invading army are the things it does not expect, the radar it does not know about and the defense methods it is not prepared for. In modern warfare, an air defense battery, when working freely, can bring down a whole squadron of planes in minutes. Iranian military shows always play on the idea of fear of the unknown and display different and varied systems even if they perform the same task.

The invisibility technology is a clear example of military investment in Iran. The US was able, through multiple wars, to turn stealth aircrafts into an irreversible technological advantage. The F-117 aircraft (the prototype of stealth aircrafts) hit Iraqi radars in the raides that launched the Second Gulf War. The same aircrafts, in addition to the B-2 Bombers, played a central role in the Yugoslavia and Iraq campaigns in 2003. On the other hand, several technological methods were developed to offset the invisibility advantage and Iran concentrated its research and production in these areas specifically.

The first method has to do with the type of radar. The Russians quickly discovered that stealth aircrafts are designed to avoid a specific kind of radars, namely the high-frequency radars with the thin wave (X band) used aboard enemy aircraft and in missile guidance radars. This frequency produces a narrow radar beam, its width in centimeters, which is ideal for detecting targets with precision and guiding ammunition.

So the Russians began to build on the wide wave technology (K band and L band and in HF which is a metric wave, i.e., its width exceeds one meter), which they have used since the end of World War II. Its drawback, however, is in its lack of precision and the inability to use it for guidance (the wider the wave, the more scattered it is at long distances, giving inaccurate coordinates about the target). The advantage of the wide wave is that its large size makes the stealth aircraft design useless. Aircraft surfaces are designed to scatter, deflect and absorb the small centimeter waves but will not prevent a wide beam from reverting to the source and detecting the target.

When the F-117 aircraft was shot down over Yugoslavia, many experts attributed it to the Yugoslav use of old Russian radars (L band, a decimetric wave) in the Sam-3 System, which downed the aircraft. After the Yugoslav War, the Russians went a step further in developing a new generation of modern metric radars whose precision is comparable to high-frequency radars. This system became integrated into each S-300 battery operated by Russia. Iran has for years displayed different types of wide wave radars, the most famous are Matla-ul-Fajr-1 and Matla-ul-Fajr-2 (Breaking Dawn). The latter resembles the Russian Nebo radar considered an invisibility detector in S-400 batteries.

Iranian generals claim that these radars have become ubiquitous completely covering the Iranian air space.

The second method used to offset invisibility technologies calls for adopting visual equipment instead of radars. With the development of modern thermal cameras, pilots discovered that they can be an excellent alternative to the radar in many cases. They are an important monitoring device (the enemy does not know that it is following them). The Russians knew since the 1980s that modern cameras are capable of monitoring US bombers from a long distance of over 90 kilometers (55 miles) without the need to operate a radar, especially at high altitudes where there is a large temperature disparity between the aircraft and the cold atmosphere surrounding it. No other country in the world today relies on visual systems the way Iran does. It integrates them in all kinds of air defense systems and constantly develops new and light systems capable of detecting targets and guiding missiles and machine guns. This is another Iranian invention as the defense establishment noticed that anti-aircraft artillery considered by many to be old-fashioned can become highly effective if connected to a modern radar and operated within a group by using computer programs that can guide a wave of firearms, forming it precisely, thus creating a wall or rather a square of shrapnel in the sky around the target. These methods become ideal for shooting down cruise missiles and reconnaissance aircrafts and protecting sensitive areas.

Conclusion

Iran built its deterrent capabilities while avoiding competition with the US on its turf. It knows in advance that it will never be able to confront a Western power in air or at sea. It is from here that asymmetrical war technologies emerged, trying to exploit existing gaps and hit the enemy with unconventional means, like missiles for instance. For years, the US was busy developing defense means for protection against Russian, Chinese, North Korean and Iranian missiles. But a report published recently in the Economist magazine explains the difficulty of doing so. The US could not stop talking about the missile shield program but few people know that a program which cost more than US$ 40 billion failed in all five interceptor tests conducted since 2008. The Economist says that about a US$ 100 billion were spent in the last decade on similar programs that did not get the US any closer to neutralizing the missile threat. On the contrary, it may have proved that the goal itself is impossible and that, indeed, is the conclusion that many US Generals who worked in this field came to. The problem is not limited to technical difficulties – trying to intercept a warhead or multiple warheads the size of a small closet floating in space at a distance of 8 Mach or more – but also has to do with how easy it is to mislead complex defence systems with simple methods. Russian missiles today are designed to launch dozens of fake targets when the warhead separates from it in outer space, all of them similar in size and moving at the same speed, thus, making it almost impossible to distinguish between them. As the US develops new interceptor technologies, Russia launches counter measures that nullify their effect.

This military and technical discussion constitutes the foundation for developing Iran’s relationship with the West and determines, to a large degree, the dynamic of the confrontation, sanctions, dialogue, agreement, competition and deals. Whoever is unaware of this background becomes easy prey to simplistic conspiracy theories and narratives about the “game” that the Iranians and Americans are playing behind the scenes while pretending to be enemies in public. The goal of course is to trick us Arabs.

Given the size of the US economy and its enormous technological capabilities, no country in the world can scare the US with the size of its army or through US-style air and naval fleets. What scares the US is armies that have combat experience and a fighting doctrine of their own, able to take advantage of local and geographic factors and design their combat style outside the traditional Western box. In this context, we can learn a lot from Iran’s experience.

We Just Witnessed The Worst Week For Global Financial Markets In 3 Years

Michael Snyder — The Economic Collapse Dec 14, 2014

Global-Financial-Markets-Crash-Public-Domain-300x300Is this the start of the next major financial crisis?  The nightmarish collapse of the price of oil is creating panic in financial markets all over the planet.  On June 16th, U.S. oil was trading at a price of $107.52.  Since then, it has fallen by almost 50 dollars in less than 6 months.  This has only happened one other time in our history.  In the summer of 2008, the price of oil utterly collapsed and we all remember what happened after that.  Well, the same patterns that we witnessed back in 2008 are happening again.  As the price of oil crashed in 2008, so did prices for a whole host of other commodities.  That is happening again.  Once commodities started crashing, the market for junk bonds started to implode.  That is also happening again.  Finally, toward the end of 2008, we witnessed a horrifying stock market crash.  Could we be on the verge of another major one?  Last week was the worst week for the Dow in more than three years, and stock markets all over the world are crashing right now.  Bad financial news continues to roll in from the four corners of the globe on an almost hourly basis.  Have we finally reached the “tipping point” that so many have been warning about?

What we witnessed last week is being described as “a bloodbath” that was truly global in scope.  The following is how Zero Hedge summarized the carnage…

  • WTI’s 2nd worst week in over 3 years (down 10 of last 11 weeks)
  • Dow’s worst worst week in 3 years
  • Financials worst week in 2 months
  • Materials worst week since Sept 2011
  • VIX’s Biggest week since Sept 2011
  • Gold’s best week in 6 months
  • Silver’s last 2 weeks are best in 6 months
  • HY Credit’s worst 2 weeks since May 2012
  • IG Credit’s worst week in 2 months
  • 10Y Yield’s best week since June 2012
  • US Oil Rig Count worst week in 2 years
  • The USDollar’s worst week since July 2013
  • USDJPY’s worst week since June 2013
  • Portugal Bonds worst week since July 2011
  • Greek stocks worst week since 1987

The stock market meltdown in Greece is particularly noteworthy.  After peaking in March, the Greek stock market is down 40 percent since then.  That includes a 20 percent implosion in just the past three trading days.

And it isn’t just Greece.  Financial markets all over Europe are in turmoil right now.  In addition to crashing oil prices, there is also renewed concern about the fundamental stability of the eurozone.  Many believe that it is inevitable that it is headed for a break up.  As a result of all of this fear, European stocks also had their worst week in over three years

European stock markets closed sharply lower on Friday, posting their biggest weekly loss since August 2011, as commodity prices continued to fall and and shares in oil-related firms came under renewed pressure from the weak price for crude.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 unofficially ended 2.6 percent lower, down 5.9 percent on the week as the energy sector once again weighed heavily on wider benchmarks, falling over 3 percent.

But despite all of the carnage that we witnessed in the U.S. and in Europe last week, things are actually far worse for financial markets in the Middle East.

Just check out what happened on the other side of the planet on Sunday

Stock markets in the Persian Gulf got drilled Sunday as worries about further price declines grew. The Dubai stock index fell 7.6% Sunday, the equivalent of a 1,313-point plunge in the Dow Jones industrial average. The Saudi Arabian market fell 3.3%.

Overall, Dubai stocks are down a whopping 23 percent over the last two weeks, and full-blown stock market crashes are happening in Qatar and Kuwait too.

Like I said, this is turning out to be a truly global financial panic.

Another region to keep an eye on is South America.  Argentina is a financial basket case, the Brazilian stock market is tanking big time, and the implied probability of default on Venezuelan debt is now up to 93 percent

Swaps traders are almost certain that Venezuela will default as the rout in oil prices pressures government finances and sends bond prices to a 16-year low.

Benchmark notes due 2027 dropped to 43.75 cents on the dollar as of 11:35 a.m. in New York, the lowest since September 1998, as crude extended a bear market decline. The upfront cost of contracts to insure Venezuelan debt against non-payment for five years is at 59 percent, bringing the implied probability of default to 93 percent, the highest in the world.

So what does all of this mean for the future?

Are we experiencing a repeat of 2008?

Could what is ahead be even worse than that?

Or could this just be a temporary setback?

Recently, Howard Hill shared a few things that he looks for to determine whether a major financial crisis is upon us or not…

The first condition is a serious market sector correction.

According to some participants in the market for energy company bonds and loans, such a correction is already underway and heading toward a meltdown (the second condition). Others are more sanguine, and expect a recovery soon.

That smaller energy companies have issued more junk-rated debt than their relative size in the economy isn’t under debate. Of a total junk bond market estimated around $1.2 trillion, about 18% ($216 billion, according to a Bloomberg estimate) has been issued by energy-related companies. Yet those companies represent a far smaller share of the economy or stock market capitalization among the universe of junk-rated companies.

If the beaten-down prices for junk energy bonds don’t stabilize or recover a bit, we might see the second condition: a spiral of distressed sales of bonds and loans. This could happen if junk bond mutual funds or other large holders sell into an unfriendly market at low prices, and then other holders of those bonds succumb to the pressure of fund redemptions or margin calls and sell at even lower prices.

The third condition, which we can’t determine directly, would be pressure on Credit Default Swap dealers or hedge funds to make deposits as the prices of the CDS move against them. AIG was taken down when collateral demands were made to support existing CDS agreements, and nobody knew it until they were going under. There simply isn’t a way to know whether banks or dealers are struggling until the effect is already metastasizing.

I think that he makes some really good points.

In particular, I think that watching how junk bonds perform over the next few weeks will be extremely telling.

Last week was truly a bloodbath for high yield debt.

But perhaps things will stabilize this week.

Let’s hope so, because this is the closest that we have been to another major financial crisis since 2008.

Moving through Darkness in Search of the Light

Visible Origami — Dec 15, 2014

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!! Why Merry Christmas? Here’s one good reason. Starting off here with a little terrestrial observation and thinking… hmmmm, I don’t want to talk about this garbage, which is there to be seen, behind the scenes and right out in front too, if you want to see it; if you permit yourself to see it and consciously accept the responsibility that comes with seeing it. I know it’s there; a great big steaming mess of runaway madness, seeking whom it might destroy. It’s the last gasp of the Zio Ogre Empire, in search of another Communista killing orgy, in the land of lumbering meatheads (just like they did in Russia), caught up in the fires of materialism, dancing in an agonizing frenzy of self immolation. Materialism is a supermarket of pain; a one stop shopping center of non stop torment and the worst of it is in not knowing why it hurts. It hurts all over but… why? The confusion about this observable truth is a big part of the reason for it. There is something in the human psyche that absolutely refuses to see why something done over and over, consistently has the same result. There is something in the human psyche, while caught up in the raging waters of a Grade Six force flow of seriously magnetized Materialism  that says, “I don’t care what the cost is, I WANT IT. I don’t want to hear any arguments about good or bad, I WANT IT! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Materialism is not magnetic in relation to metal. It is magnetic in relation to ignorance, greed and appetite and the force of it increases in direct relation to the siphoning off of personal fluids necessary for ones resistance to the power of the fascination and lure of the whole lurid spectacle. If you don’t have control over the subtle fluids of the mind and emotion then you won’t have control over the physical fluids which, when routinely drained from the body, leave one in a seriously weakened state. This accounts for the ubiquity of porn and the terrible fixations and consequences that come with it. It also accounts for the motivation of those who are the manufacturers of it. Sure the money is good but… it is the devastating effect of it upon those consumed by it that is the real payoff for those who trade in it, along with blackmail and other mediums for profit and control. It is a purely satanic area of influence, whose currency is death and spiritual devastation. It is a horrific bardo of burning confinements.
It may be that in some vanished age of which not even the memory survives to this day, that this world may have once been an Okay place to live but… in these times, those rewarded are the most rapacious and twisted of souls among us. The greatest and most actively pursued pleasures here seem to be about physical indulgences, the acquisition of wealth past any possibility of actual need and a fierce joy taken in causing harm on as wide a level as it is possible to accomplish it. The awful tandem of indifference and mendacity is a wonder to behold. They don’t care who they hurt or how much and they are positively ingenious in the intricacies of offenses visited upon all and sundry; excepting themselves.
It is impossible for one to maintain any semblance of balance if they are squandering their vital forces. The result of this is ill health and guaranteed infirmity, as well as various forms of servitude and enslavement. It also drains the mind and the higher emotional arc of all capacity to function. It deposits one in a well of torpor. It activates negative emotion. It generates confusion, a lack of will and purpose and generally messes you up big time.
Modern day psychologists will sneer at my suggestion of this here. They are paid by the same interests that own the corporations that make their living sucking the population dry. They are verified and licensed by the governments that serve the interests of the corporations that suck them dry. The descriptor for this condition, in my own words is, “burned out from within”. You become a husk and you lack everything needed to function and exist on those planes of being where certain protections can be secured. Let me put it this way; when your vital forces are leached away, you exist in a space not unlike those abandoned neighborhoods in Detroit where the police don’t go. If you have your tank topped up it is more along the order of a gated community with an armed guard at the gate. Any informed yogi can verify what is said here and certainly this would be corroborated by Hermetic scientists and anyone informed about physiology as it was once understood before every area of science got corrupted by the necessity to whore for money, as well as denying the actual truth, while in pursuit of gain… because those handing out the money demand it. They insist on it, as a requirement of the funding.
What, to my mind is the most critical awareness… that should be held uppermost in any mind that is ‘capable of doing so’; ONLY because it has not squandered all the oil in its lamp, is that all of the seeming complexities of this material age; the intricate agendas of governments, corporations and banks, all the external conditions are about one thing and that is the war for the individual and collective souls of humanity. I don’t care under what guise any of it presents itself; this is what it is all about. Imagine a graphic done by the artists, Dore or Escher. There is a corkscrewing spiral going up and going down. A different form of luminosity attends each directional aspect and the aspect of the travelers on each spiral is different as well or… you might look at it as something like this. You may be sure that regardless of how strange it may appear to you it is a highly accurate depiction. You may also be sure that regardless of how invisible the invisible realms of existence may appear to be, they are most certainly real and in the sense of enduring permanence, they are more real than this plane.
The idea is to seduce every mind, which can possibly be seduced, into believing that what we see around us here is real and also important; important enough to risk one’s welfare and spiritual being for. The force of all the dancing glamour of this world is about distraction and it is about a specific distraction and… that is to take your mind off of the ineffable; only that. All the strife and struggle to survive and prosper is about occupying your attention in the period between birth and death. That is ALL it is about. It has no other meaning and no real importance otherwise. Nothing here is of any value except what lies within and the only way what lies within can be accessed is by taking the mind off of what lies without. Some will say… “That’s impossible! I have to feed and clothe myself. I have to have somewhere to stay. I have responsibilities to this one and that one. I have no intention of being reduced to the state of a homeless vagabond” and yadda yadda yadda. Well… that’s not necessary. It is perfectly possible to take care of everything that needs taking care of without becoming an indentured servant to it because… that… doesn’t end and it only gets worse. After a certain point one forgets that there ever were any other options and by that time there is a good chance that there aren’t any.
It should also be understood that no matter what ones perception of their circumstances here, they actually are a homeless vagabond and they will find this out fairly shortly after they exit this plane. On the following plane, ones former position, ones level of wealth, prestige, power and currency of appearance et al mean nothing, except insofar as how one used any of them and to what end. No one you will encounter on the following plane is going to be impressed by any of these former possession; they are nowhere to be seen, except on the big screen, where the highlights of ones tenure here are played for the benefit of whoever is going to be passing judgment on you and routing you on to your next port of call. Of course, it plays for you as well. It is important that you get to see what you thought was important by comparison with what is truly important and which, should you be unaware of what that is, you will surely be informed of at the time.
Life is somewhat easier to manage and negotiate when one realizes how little of importance anything is down here and that the only importance that can be attributed to anything is to what end you used it or were used by it; chased after it or ignored it. What is important is the degree of service and devotion rendered. It really is all about how you played the game. Winning and Losing in the cosmic sense is utterly dependent on that.

Sydney hostage situation over after armed police storm cafe

News Brief — Dec 15, 2014

The Sydney hostage stand-off appears to be over after police stormed the Lindt Chocolat Cafe shortly after 2.00am on Tuesday, local time.
An injured woman is carried from the scene. Click to enlarge

After the police moved in, Associated Press reports that one weeping woman was seen being helped out by officers and at least two other people were wheeled out on stretchers.
Perth Now reports that three people were believed dead — including gunman Sheik Man Haron Monis — and another three injured after police stormed the Lindt Café were later confirmed.
Flashes were seen emanating from the siege site as NSW police moved in on the cafe at around 2.11am.
Sydney police have been reticent with details concerning the siege. As Jim Stone has pointed out however, this “reeks to high heaven of a pre programmed CIA drone doing this according to what ever script was washed into his head”.
That being the case police will only release information that abides with the script.
After a news conference during which very little hard information was disclosed, New South Wales state police Commissioner Andrew Scipione told reporters:
Man Haron Monis. Click to enlarge

Man Haron Monis. Click to enlarge

“I would like to give you as much as I can but right now that is as much as I can.”
That was shortly before police stormed the Lindt Cafe but we do know that the prime suspect named by police is Man Haron Monis, a fifty-year-old Iranian refugee.
Well-known to the authorities since he was found to have written hate letters to the families of Australian soldiers killed in overseas conflicts, Haron Monis is currently on bail charged with being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife and mother of his two children.
Monis is reportedly also facing more than 40 sexual and indecent assault charges.
These relate to time allegedly spent as a self-proclaimed “spiritual healer” who dealt with so-called black magic at a premises in western Sydney, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
In other words Man Haron Monis had the makings of  perfect CIA patsy who can be written off of as a maladjusted malcontent without question.

Probable Islamic terror hoax in Australia

Jim Stone — via Rebel News Dec 15, 2014

ISIS™ nabs a chocolate shop in Sydney, right across from Channel 7!
Christians march in Sydney against US funded killings by ISIS in Syria and Iraq

Christians march in Sydney against US funded killings by ISIS in Syria and Iraq

As of 10 PM Central time on the 14th (which is the 15th in Australia) an “Islamic terrorist” has taken over a Lindt chocolate shop in Sydney Australia and held 50 people hostage. But there are serious problems with this story.
The first problem? A sign the hostages reportedly were forced to hold up against the windows which read “We sacrifice ourselves for you, O Mohamed” was shown via a blurry photograph and had incomplete text. This would be expected of a hack doing this, no Muslim would get the text wrong.
The second serious problem is that this is purportedly an ISIS action. But it appears to be a lone gunman doing it all, which reeks to high heaven of a pre programmed CIA drone doing this according to what ever script was washed into his head especially with the sign being apparently half baked in appearance.

The third serious problem? As of 10 PM CST, absolutely nothing about this has been released on anything other than twitter. Nada on Drudge, CNN or anywhere else. Only Australian papers have anything up and all they are doing is following tweets because tweets are all there is at this point. So they could be doing toe dips with a load of bunk and seeing where it goes. HOWEVER, Lindt Chocolate company has shut all other stores, that is for certain so even if it is all tweets at this point, something of substance has happened as a result.
This story may well be so fresh that no one has caught on yet in the MSM? Let’s see what posts on the 15th in the U.S., certainly if this is “their” next pet project they will do all they can to make hay with it.

Update:

The Jewish Press has come right out and said it is ISIS doing this. Perhaps a setup or wishful thinking? Awful quick to the draw with this when all they are doing is following tweets as well, but interesting perspective here.

Update:

All Jewish synagogues and organizations are on lockdown in Australia already. That does it for me! That was TOO FAST to get that done, it happened WAY TOO FAST, THEY DID THIS, the extremely rapid lockdown response proves foreknowledge. They just got the word GO. All a show!

UPDATE:

The location and timing appears to be too perfect to be real. Take a look at this photo – The location was obviously selected for huge media coverage with a perfect view of the hostage taking scene. The fact this was launched early morning on Monday gives them a full day of media coverage (just like 911) and a whole week to make hay. The ISIS sign was placed perfectly between “Lindt” and Merry Christmas” on the windows, perhaps a back stab because the Swiss asked for their gold back?
Update: Drudge still does not have anything up about this along with CNN and all others, why the delay in the American press? 5 hours into this now . . . . .

Update: Snipers on scene, perfectly clear shots of police pointing guns at news cameras, 3 hostages “escaped” or released, depending upon which report, AND, you do not get perfectly clear shots of police pointing guns directly at news cameras unless it is all set up to be that way for propaganda psy op purposes, this one is tough to believe. What on earth could that cop possibly be pointing his gun at other than a news camera to make a big show? What is between the cameraman and that cop that needs a gun pointed at it? So called “hostage” or escapee looking right at the news camera just like the cop is, WHY? Because it makes a great photo!
UPDATE: Confirmed: Over five hours into this, there is a complete blackout in the American media as confirmed by readers on the Forum, and I would like to know why. This was well underway a full hour before the nightly news on the East coast, yet hours later it was still not on the nightly news on the West coast. ABC news is doing a livestream of this from Australia, why did ABC news not have it on the nightly news in America then? This livestream proves the American press is not in the dark about this, why nothing on the nightly news?

ANSWER: Because they know that the ISIS ruse is a risky fraud to uphold, and they are afraid of putting it up in front of Americans en masse before they know if it is going to actually fly in Australia. That is the only possible answer for this blackout in the American press. They have a few more hours for the toe dip in the truther piranha tank to prove itself out in Australia while people sleep in America before deciding whether or not to dip America in that tank as well. Obviously if it flops before evening in Australia, they will retire it where it sits.
UPDATE: They are testing the waters with various stories. For example, the unintelligible message about all of this being done for Mohammed has been replaced with “it was the Shadaha” which is too big of a leap for any real story. They are simply testing new things until they find a load of crap most intellectual carp will suck on and enjoy.
HA! Here’s a good one! Among their demands was that they be brought an Isis flag! If that is not a laugh I don’t know what is, YOU MEAN ISIS SHOWED UP WITHOUT A FLAG? NOT EVEN A LASER PRINTED ONE? Come on now, 11X17 laser print available at Kinkos would work JUST FINE! No flag??!!?? what a joke! That demand was apparently made at the request of a few intellectual carp who will believe said demand “proves” it has to be ISIS!
Obviously they are working out the bugs in their presentation before manure forking it over to the American side of the Pacific! GET WHILE THE GETTING IS GOOD, THE FRESH B.S. IS PRICELESS.

Once again language is distorted in order to hide US state wrongdoing

Robert Fisk — The Independent Dec 15, 2014

Thank God for Noam Chomsky. Not for his lifetime of eviscerating assaults on our political hypocrisy, but for his linguistics. Long before I knew him, undergraduate Fisk laboured at his university linguistics course, where Chomsky’s work first alerted me to the pernicious use of language. Hence I condemn at once the vile semantics of the Pentagon and the CIA. Not just that old, wolfish, obscene phrase “collateral damage”, but the language of torture.

CIA Director John Brennan

Or, as the lads who torture on our behalf call it, “enhanced interrogation techniques”. Let’s take a closer look at that. “Enhanced” is a word of improvement. It suggests something better, more learned, even less costly. For example, “enhanced medicine” would presumably involve a more streamlined way of improving your health. Just as “enhanced schooling” would suggest a more worthy education for a child. “Interrogation” at least gives a hint of what this is all about. Asking questions and getting – or not getting – a reply. But “techniques” beats the lot. A technique is a technical skill, is it not? Usually, so my dictionary tells me, in artistic work.

So the “interrogators” have special skills – which implies training, learnt work, application, the product of brains. Which I suppose, in a way, is what torture is all about. It’s just not the way I would normally describe the process of slamming people into walls, half-drowning them in water and ramming hummus up their rectums. But in case that’s a bit too graphic, the US press lads and lasses have got round it in a familiar form. The whole process of “enhanced interrogation techniques” is now called “EIT”. Like WMD – another whopper in our political vocabulary – the whole filthy business is wrapped up in a three-letter abbreviation.

And then we learn that this is all part of a “programme”. Something carefully planned, you understand, a syllabus, a performance, regular, approved, even theatrical. My trusty old American College Dictionary even defines “programme” as “an entertainment with reference to its pieces or numbers”, which is what I suppose the sickos in the CIA were enjoying when they set about their victims. Strap him down, cloth over the face, pour on the water, whoops, not too many bubbles please. Ah well, slam him into the wall again. A programme indeed.

Dick “Dark Side” Cheney used the word “programme” when he condemned the US Senate report on CIA torture. Oddly, however, his description of the document as “full of crap” contained an unintended side effect of the process which he applauds. For those under torture often urinate and defecate, and – as we know from those who suffered these “programmes” – the CIA often let their victims stand naked and soil before them. Cheney wishes us to believe, of course, that these poor men gave important information to the vile creatures who were torturing them. That’s exactly what medieval inquisitions discovered when they accused the innocent of witchcraft. Almost to a man – and woman – the victims admitted that they had flown through the air. Perhaps that’s what Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, after being waterboarded 183 times, told his CIA torturers. He could fly through the air. A terrorist human drone. I suppose that must be the kind of “vital information” Cheney claims the victims gave the CIA.

Of course, it was left to the Gothic-faced CIA director, John Brennan, perhaps feeling the heat of some human-rights lawyers breathing down his neck, to say that some of the “techniques” – yes, that’s the word he used – were unauthorised and “abhorrent”. And thus he deftly provided a new version of the CIA’s crimes. AIT – the abhorrent torture – “should be repudiated by all” – but not, it seems, good old EIT. As Cheney said, torture was “something that we very carefully avoided”. I note the words “very carefully”. And I shudder.

The good Mr Brennan told us that “we fell short when it came to holding some officers [sic] accountable”. But it is perfectly clear that the torturers – or “officers” – are not going to be held accountable. Nor is Mr Brennan. Nor Dick Cheney. And nor, dare I mention this, are the Arab regimes where the CIA “rendered” those victims worthy of even viler treatment than could be meted out in its own secret prisons. One poor chap, Maher Arar, was a Canadian citizen, a truck driver seized by the CIA at JFK airport in New York and bundled off to pre-civil-war Syria for a little AIT – not EIT, mark you – at the request of Americans. Held in a hole little bigger than a coffin, his first introduction to AIT was being whipped with electric cables.

Thus did Cheney and his lads and lasses indulge their sadism by proxy – to the very state whose “interrogation techniques” now outrage the West so much that it is calling for the overthrow of the Syrian regime (along with the overthrow of Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra), in favour of newly armed “moderates” who will, presumably, engage only in EIT rather than in AIT.

But as my journalist colleague Rami Khouri has been pointing out, the 54 countries in the CIA’s “programme” of rendition included Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. You can add Gaddafi’s Libya to that list. Indeed, the Italian secret police even helped the CIA to kidnap an imam off the streets of Milan and pack him off to Cairo for a little AIT at the hands of Mr Mubarak’s interrogators. Which probably accounts for why the Arab and Muslim world has been a bit quiet ever since the US Senate report – even in its highly censored form – was published last week.

It was the Egyptian journalist Mohamed Hassanein Heikal who first wrote of how the CIA circulated film of an Iranian woman being tortured by the Shah’s secret police so that other nations should learn how to make female prisoners talk. Not so the new and improved CIA of today, of course. It destroyed its own video tapes before the US Senate committee could get its hands on them. But the subservient nature of the Arab regimes should be studied at this time. For they also tortured – on our behalf. As Khouri asked last week, “Will we speak of, or try to repair, our own criminal and imperial collusions nearly as openly as the US addresses its own?” Don’t bother waiting for the answer.

Is This Xi Jinping’s Jewish Handler?

Scott Frost — henrymakow.com Dec 14, 2014

Robert Lawrence Kuhn.

Robert Lawrence Kuhn.

Let me introduce you to Robert Lawrence Kuhn. He’s an international investment banker and the author of “How China’s Leaders Think: The Inside Story of China’s Reform and What This Means for the Future”.
I venture to say Mr. Kuhn is the most recent of many Jewish handlers who have shaped China’s political and economic policy throughout its long history.
In Kuhn’s book [How Kuhn has programmed China's leaders to think]he explains the “Chinese Dream”. (Remember the American Dream?)
“The Chinese Dream has four parts: Strong China (economically, politically, diplomatically, scientifically, militarily); Civilized China (equity and fairness, rich culture, high morals); Harmonious China (amity among social classes); Beautiful China (healthy environment, low pollution). Kuhn states that “a moderately well-off society” is where all citizens, rural and urban, enjoy high standards of living.
This includes doubling the 2010 G.D.P. per capita (approaching $10,000 per person) by about 2020 and completing urbanization (roughly one billion people, 70 percent of China’s population) by about 2030.
“Modernization” means China regaining its position as a world leader in science and technology as well as in economics and business; the resurgence of Chinese civilization, culture and military might; and China participating actively in all areas of human endeavor”. In other words “Chinese Dream” is just another catch phrase promoting the Illuminati agenda for “sustainable development” [human misery].
chinesedreamXi Jinping leader of The People’s Republic of China adopted “Chinese Dream” as his slogan in November of 2013. In May 2013, Xi Jinping called upon young people “to dare to dream, work assiduously to fulfill the dreams and contribute to the revitalization of the nation.” He called upon all levels of the Party and the government to facilitate favorable conditions for their career development. Xi told young people to “cherish the glorious youth, strive with pioneer spirit and contribute their wisdom and energy to the realization of the Chinese dream.”
The CHRD are not buying the smooth talk being parroted by Xi Jinping. Could this be a glimmer of hope for China?
According to the Network of Chinese Human Rights Defenders (March 3, 2014) – “Human rights defenders in China experienced a tumultuous year of government suppression in 2013, yet they continued to demonstrate remarkable strength and extraordinary courage, as documented in CHRD’s annual report , A Nightmarish Year Under Xi Jinping’s “Chinese Dream.”
“The Chinese government’s assault on activists last year indicates just how far authorities … are willing to go to suppress an increasingly active and emboldened civil society,” said Renee Xia, CHRD international director.
“2013 saw the harshest suppression of civil society in over a decade…with human rights and rule of law basically going backwards. Still, the drive in Chinese civil society to keep fighting under difficult and dangerous conditions is the most important asset for promoting human rights and democratization in the country.”
- Teng Biao, Chinese human rights lawyer, speaking to CHRD
Robert Lawrence Khun’s via Xi Jinping “Chinese Dream” appears to be more of the same ole, same ole; a recurring Illuminati “Jewish Nightmare” that continues to haunt mankind.
