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

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

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

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

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

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

Movie Analysis

The Workers

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

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

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

The Thinker s

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

 Joh Fredersen, the Demi-God

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

 Metropolis themes are also very prevalent in fashion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Which is kind of reminiscent of this music video ending.

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

 The Moral of the Story

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

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

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

Analogies Between Metropolis and Today’s Pop Culture

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

In Conclusion

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

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

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


Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

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

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

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

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

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

Rumours of Barenboim Iran visit piques Israel’s far-right

John Reed — The Financial Times August 26, 2015

Renowned classical pianist Daniel Barenboim

Renowned classical pianist Daniel Barenboim

Not content with threatening to cut off funding for artists she deems disloyal to Israel, Miri Regev, Israel’s far-right culture minister, is apparently seeking to project power onto her country’s preeminent foreign policy issue: the recently signed nuclear deal with Iran.

Ms Regev said on Wednesday that she planned to lodge a formal protest to the German government about a possible musical visit to Iran by Daniel Barenboim, the celebrated pianist and conductor, and that she would ask Berlin to stop the conductor from travelling.

“Daniel Barenboim, a citizen of Israel, will perform in Iran together with the Berlin Philharmonic,” Ms Regev wrote on her Facebook page after reports circulated in the media that he might travel to Tehran in September. “Daniel Barenboim’s concert in Iran hurts Israel’s efforts to prevent the nuclear agreement and boosts the delegitimisation efforts against Israel,” she added.

Ms Regev, a member of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, sits well to the right of the prime minister in one of the most right-wing cabinets in Israeli history. She openly scorns many of the figures in Israel’s cultural elite served by her ministry, and has even dismissed artists as “tight-asses”.

Some of her more extreme comments – such as when she likened African migrants in Israel to “cancer” make even conservative Israelis cringe.

1miri regev

Miri Regev

Mr Barenboim, an Argentine-born Israeli who holds several musical directorships in Europe, is a harsh critic of Israel’s policies in the occupied territories. He co-founded, with the late Palestinian-American writer Edward Said, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, which brings together young Arab and Israeli musicians.

“Barenboim has taken an anti-Israel stance and he makes sure to slander Israel while using culture as leverage in order to state his political opinions against the state of Israel,” Ms Regev wrote.

Mr Barenboim serves as musical director of the Berlin State Opera, Milan’s La Scala and the Berliner Staatskapelle, but – contrary to Ms Regev’s post – holds no such position with the Berlin Philharmonic.

A spokeswoman for the Berlin State Opera – which is on summer recess – could not confirm the reports on Wednesday, and the Vienna Philharmonic denied it had any plans to visit Iran next month.

The shrill tone of the Israeli culture minister’s reaction to the rumour says something about her style as a politician, and quite a bit more about the current anxious mood in the Israeli establishment about the nuclear deal.

Her remarks also reflect a querulous, aggrieved tone among many Israeli officials as the Iran deal heads toward final implementation.

The Israeli government has argued tirelessly against the deal, saying it will free up billions of dollars Tehran can use to fund its own allies in the region – such as the Shia militant group Hezbollah – and put in place an inspections regime the Iranians can exploit if they choose to.

With more and more politicians and businesspeople planning visits to Tehran – including German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who is due there in October – many in Israel feel betrayed by its closest allies. This included the US, where more members of Congress are voicing support for the nuclear deal ahead of next month’s vote.

But it looks as if the show is going to go on whether Israel protests or not – and whether or not Mr Barenboim’s supposed visit to Iran ever takes place.


Never Forget: The Central Banks Have Engineered This Collapse

James Corbett — The Corbett Report August 25, 2015

Dead Cat Bounce.Click to enlarge

Dead Cat Bounce.Click to enlarge

Good news, everybody! The markets are rebounding! Yes, we just a hit a minor bump in the road there, but don’t worry, everything is back to normal now. Let’s forget about the tail end of last week and this week’s Black Monday, shall we? Pay no mind to the uncomfortable lowlights of the global stock rout:

Nope, nothing to see here. And now that this dead cat bounce is underway, surely there will be no more commodity deflation or global economic slowdown or worldwide currency war or historically unprecedented bond bubbles to worry about, right?

OK, enough sarcasm. Readers of this column will know by now that the phoney baloney stock markets, manipulated as they are from top to bottom and juiced as they are on the Fed’s QE heroin, are no longer reflective of economic reality. The only question is how far this particular dead cat market will bounce, and whether it will be helped along with more heroin from the Fed.

But there is already one vitally important take away from these events that the independent media must articulate now, before it’s too late. Namely: This crisis was engineered by the central banks. It is their fault.

Let me repeat that again in case you missed it: This crisis was engineered by the central banks.

This point is not even controversial. It has been the universal consensus of institutions ranging from the Bank for International Settlements to the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum, and from OECD officials to former Fed Governors and even Alan “Bubbles” Greenspan himself.

In fact, analyst after analyst and pundit after pundit–including the most mainstream of mainstream publications–have been sounding the alarm on the stock market bubble for much of the past year.

This tells us two things: the current market mayhem was perfectly predictable (and predicted), and the central banks not only stayed the course but actually doubled down with more and more QE injections.

It is the central banks that have created this mess, and what’s more they have created this mess in the full knowledge that their actions would lead to disaster. And now, one can be sure, the same central bankers and their political puppet mouthpieces will use this crisis to continue the construction of the “New World Order” that they called for in the wake of the 2008 collapse.

Anyone who can’t see the endgame now–global government by the bankers, of the bankers and for the bankers–is either blind or wilfully ignorant.

It is especially important to state these obvious truths now, because we can already see a false narrative underway. This narrative has two main thrusts: one is to paint China as the culprit for the global downturn and the other is to assume that only central banks can save the day (with even greater liquidity injections and even deeper rate cuts).

The China-as-economic-villain narrative ranges from the subdued (“China’s ‘Black Monday’ sends markets reeling across the globe“) to the blatant (“Chinese Economy Causes Markets to Fall“) to the silly (“Don Yuan Causes Heartbreak“), but they all convey the same message: China has brought this on the world all by itself. It’s not that China is reacting to a global monetary environment created by the Fed and fostered by other central banks, or a global economic slowdown that is biting into a heavily export-driven economy, or the conflicting pressures on the country as it tries to navigate its way toward global reserve currency status. Nope, it’s just a bull in a china shop (or is that a China in a bull market?) knocking things over and causing mayhem (Trump was right!).

Committee to Save the WorldThe only-central-banks-can-save-us narrative is even more infantile, but also more dangerous. We are told that the crash came because China’s central bank failed to act. We are told that it’s now up to Turkey’s central bank to bolster the flagging lira. We are told that the Lehman collapse occurred because of too little central bank intervention. We are told that only the European Central Bank is capable of “riding to the rescue” and preventing a market rout.

In other words the very same institutions that engineered this crisis are the only ones that can save us.

It is the height of insanity that anyone would believe this nonsense, but then again the world fell for it after Lehman, and they’re likely to fall for it again. Unless we spread the word.

The banksters did it. And unless we derail their agenda, they’re going to do it again.


The City of New York versus Homer Simpson

Comment — August 26, 2015

Britain’s Channel Four just aired an old repeat episode of the Simpsons, entitled the City of New York versus Homer Simpson, Series 9, Episode 1
It caught my eye because it first aired on Fox on Sept 21, 1997, nearly four years before Sept 11, 2001. That’s significant because the World Trade Center was still standing when this particular Simpsons episode was first broadcast. That’s why it features the iconic twin towers.
Why is this important? Because for a few brief seconds as Homer Simpson contemplates a trip into New York City the cartoon features what looks like the cover of a New York travel brochure. On it is a depiction of the WTC twin towers.


Remember this Simpsons episode was first broadcast in September 1997. So either this episode uncannily prefigured events nearly four years before they happened. Or, the Simpsons scriptwriters were in on the game plan and sending coded visual signals to others who might also know what was being planned.


Of course those scriptwriters and cartoonists involved may not have known exactly what was being planned. It may just have been “suggested” to them by an insider that they depict the WTC next to the figure of 911.
Either way, someone close to the Simpsons production team or maybe part of it was intent on sending coded signals to others in the know.
Nor was the Simpsons the only cartoon to display an uncanny precognition of the events of Sept 11, 2001. On April 27, 2001, an episode of Johnny Bravo aired which also seemed to prefigure the events of 9/11. A still from that episode features below and readers will note the ominous words “Coming Soon …”

Note the picture on the wall

Some might like to dismiss these eerie similarities as “coincidence” but as a mentor once remarked: “there is no such thing as coincidence”. A sweeping statement but I would suggest that insiders are sending coded signals to others “in the know” via the corporate media.

There is No Way out, there is Only a Way In

Visible Origami — August 26, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

There are so many mysteries in life and it seems to me that the most impressive mysteries are the one’s right in front of our face that we bypass every day because we think we get it but we don’t get it because if we got it… what we learned would be in operation all of the time, simply because of the inescapable truth contained in the understanding of it. For instance, one of the mysteries is that of the existence of an all powerful divine presence that not only permeates all of existence but which composes it out of the substance of its own being and is at the same time every living thing in some fashion or another because all life is an expression of the divine life force.
99% of the time when false-self important intellectuals attack or denigrate the existence of a divine being, it is about religion, as if this sort of apples and oranges argument were scientifically valid, which it is not …but those who argue about most anything because their objective is argument to begin with, could care less about false premises even as they argue about how sound their principles are. The truth is that they can imagine nothing more important or worthy than themselves and the idea of any force greater than themselves is anathema to them. It always amuses me to see those with the dimmest understanding of the totality of it all, holding in contempt the mind of the grand architect who formed everything including them.
It is not with these scoffers and self felating egotists that I am concerned. They will discover the truth at some point, across the massive reach of life and lifetimes at that time and place where illumination finally descends on them. My concern is with those of us who KNOW there is a God and yet who do not spend every waking moment in search of communion with it. My concern is with those who know there is a god but who prefer to argue with those of other faiths about the composition of the almighty and what the almighty wants and prefers as if they were privy to these informations which, of course, they are not. These things should not be my concerns because my capacity to do anything is completely in the hands of the one who decides whether anything is successful or not. If the almighty forbids something, it doesn’t happen. If the almighty permits something it does happen, for the purpose of demonstration. Are there myriad and uncountable exceptions and contradictions to all of this? Yes. Does any one of us know more than a fragment about any of it? No.
Another mystery is that though we see men and women dying all around us, for some reason we do not think that we shall die. I think a stork told one of the Pandavas this but I am not absolutely sure. The stork, if memory serves, was an expression of Dharma.
All through our lives we war against ourselves. We remember selectively. We err and regret and then we go forth and err again. There is something in us that tells us we will get it right the next time as we go about it in the same fashion and we do not get it right and we regret and then set out to repeat the action yet again. I have spent my life reflecting on these things and on the meaning of life and I have come to one inescapable conclusion; one cannot know. It is impossible to know and one only understands when one has effectively managed to surrender to the higher self within and ceases forever to contend with it again. Here is what Lao Tzu had to say on the matter.
You will note what has been highlighted in bold text. If you want more of Lao Tzu, all that we have of what he said is to be found here.
Another mystery is how we can fear the unknown, while possessing a certitude of the existence of a profound awareness that interpenetrates all life and without which there would be no life and which is fundamentally aware of even the slightest alteration in our state and is aware of us beyond any capacity we possess ourselves and yet… we doubt and we fear. I suspect it is because we measure the benevolence and mercy of the almighty against our own. We attribute to the almighty a facsimile of our own nature and expect the almighty to behave as we do. This is not how it works. What is it in us that causes us to reason and project in this manner?
 “Be utterly humble
And you shall hold to the foundation of peace.
Be at one with all these living things which, having arisen and flourished,
Return to the quiet whence they came,
Like a healthy growth of vegetation
Falling back upon the root.
Acceptance of this return to the root has been called ‘quietism,’
Acceptance of quietism has been condemned as ‘fatalism.’
But fatalism is acceptance of destiny
And to accept destiny is to face life with open eyes,
Whereas not to accept destiny is to face death blindfold.
He who is open-eyed is open-minded-
He who is open-minded is open-hearted,
He who is open-hearted is kingly,
He who is kingly is godly,
He who is godly is useful,
He who is useful is infinite,
He who is infinite is immune,
He who is immune is immortal.”
One of the cardinal objectives of self inquiry is to find the enemy within and to recognize it. Far more important is to find the master of all things, for this force will instantaneously deal with the enemy within. However, finding the master within is consistently hindered by the enemy within and that is why recognition is so very important. There is an old phrase that I am very fond of; “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” It ties in with this concept- we become like that which we emulate. We cannot know the ineffable and there are sound metaphysical reasons for this. That which we aspire after should forever be beyond our reach in its entirety so that we are always approaching and never arriving. Like they say, ‘it’s the journey that counts’. We do encounter stages of completeness and that which we pursue leaves a trail and we acquire particles as if we were being pulled along in the tail of a comet. Eventually we become fully magnetized to the comet or the star we rotate around. Some seek total immersion in the ineffable and a complete loss of personal identity and some seek to be filled with the presence of the ineffable but to allow the light of it to flow unhindered through the stained glass windows of the personality. I am of the second order and I believe there is a choice involved here and we have our reasons for making that choice and we are made a certain way that inclines us toward that choice; by what?
Perhaps one final mystery will serve for the conclusion of this entry. How is it that a seeker after a particular path can find illumination and a seeker after a very different path can find illumination and their approach, their tactics and their scripture be significantly different from the other? The truth is that they are both right and that is why the wise do not argue. There is one mountain and many paths. It is, faith, certitude and determination that lead us up the path. The paths each have a particular degree of difficulty. One might say that the path is ourselves and we are the path the ineffable walks in a course that resolves in mutual recognition, although we were known and recognized long before. Once this recognition takes place, all arguments and inconsistencies of spiritual variables as expressed in different faiths, dissolve into a primary understanding. There is no longer a ‘this’ and a ‘that’. It is what it is.
We have one responsibility and that is to maintain our commitment to the one we aspire to emulate and.. as our intensity grows and our sincerity is deepened and refined we are given more of the qualities of the ineffable to express. It troubles some that I say that it doesn’t matter what we go through if we arrive at the intended objective. It troubles some when I talk about utter surrender to the inner light and a complete submission to the inner voice but that is what I have discovered as the result of all of my efforts and errors. I know that I do not know, as I know that I can be given what I need to know when I need to know it. I am not reliant on my own devices. I have repeatedly failed at this. Perhaps others have been and will be more successful. I can only speak for myself and so this is the path that I follow and this is the message that I preach.

Net migration predicted to hit record level

Alan Travis — The Guardian August 27, 2015

immigration border controlNew official figures are expected to show that net migration to Britain has reached record or near record levels.

The politically sensitive figure, which estimates the net flow of people in and out of Britain, stood at 318,000 in the last set of quarterly figures published in May just after the general election.

This was just 2,000 below the 320,000 record high in net migration recorded in 2005, soon after Poland and other east European states joined the EU. The net migration figure is politically significant since David Cameron renewed the Conservatives pledge to reduce it to the “tens of thousands” immediately after the general election.

The latest quarterly migration figures, covering the 12 months to March 2015, published on Thursday are expected to show that the number of foreign-born people living in Britain has passed the eight million mark for the first time and that more than three million of them have become British citizens since arriving in the UK.

The immigration minister, James Brokenshire, announced further details of the government’s forthcoming immigration bill earlier this week, including measures to imprison migrants found to be working illegally and to temporarily close down businesses that are found to be employing illegal labour.

The impact of the Calais migrant crisis has driven immigration to the top of voters’ concerns according to an Ipsos Mori poll earlier this month with more than 50% of voters naming it as a major issue issue facing the country. This was an eight point jump compared with the June poll in the same series.

Mark Hilton, immigration policy director at London First, said: “The business community wants the government to tone down its anti-migration rhetoric. Migration is an important part of being in a thriving, modern economy.

“As we’ve seen in recent days, the global economy remains fragile, so now is not the time to pull up the drawbridge to the type of global talent that will help drive our economic growth.

“Immigrants are job creators, allowing British businesses to expand into new markets, by bringing specialist skills. So far from taking our jobs, they actually create more of them.”

The Institute of Directors echoed the warning to the government not to pull up the drawbridge and backed a call from the migration thinktank British Future for a comprehensive review of the UK’s immigration needs and the impact on the economy, culture and society.

Simon Walker, the IoD’s director general, said: “By announcing polices on the hoof every time new figures come out, the government betrays its lack of a long-term plan on migration. Scrabbling around to find measures to hit a bizarre and unachievable migration target is no way to give British businesses the stable environment they need.

“Combined with ministers’ increasingly strong rhetoric on immigration, the UK’s reputation as an open, competitive economy is under threat.”

British Future’s Sunder Katwala said a comprehensive immigration review would set out “what’s possible and what isn’t. It could also give the public more of a say in what happens – providing impartial facts about the impacts of different policies on the economy, society and public services.”

Katherine Jaconello and her mother on Mother’s Day, 2013. Click to enlarge

In 2000, my mother was hospitalized, and then involuntarily committed — all because she had a dream of suicide while drugged!!
My mother had no history of psychiatric care. She was the main caregiver of my sick and elderly father. Her family doctor gave her a sleeping pill when she had pneumonia and she had side effects – a palpitating heart.
At the local hospital emergency, she was diagnosed with anxiety. She had NO SUICIDAL IDEATION. Not until doctors dosed her with the anaesthetic, chloral hydrate – contraindicated in elderly people with gastric problems like my Mom had.
She was held for five days until she finally had a dream of killing herself. Then the Dufferin County Mental Health jumped into action. While she was delirious, they did a 15-page mental health assessment, committed her to a mental asylum while she was in the hospital. That left my ill father without any help at home, plus he was in shock.
After I raised hell, they let her go home as long as she attended the Dufferin County Mental Health office in two days. There, a doctor repeatedly pointed an index finger in her face and demanded to know if she wanted to kill herself.
She was finally told to be at Homewood Psychiatric Hospital by 9 pm or the Ontario Provincial Police would come and seize her in front of her neighbours.

Harvey Proctor accuser ‘distressed’ by former MP’s denial

Former MP Harvey Proctor

Former MP Harvey Proctor

Introduction — August 26, 2015

Call it a hunch but this writer thinks that former MP Harvey Proctor is being used to divert attention from others who participated in depraved Westminster sex parties that led the deaths of three young boys.
Which is not to say that Proctor wasn’t involved in some sort of sex ring. However, he may have been set up so that some bigger names who were also involved, and may still active in politics, can evade examination. Former prime minister Ted Heath and ex-home secretary Leon Brittan have both been implicated as have Lord Janner and Michael Hanley, the former director general of MI5.
All of the aforementioned were far higher in the British establishment than Proctor and all, with the exception of Lord Janner, are now dead.
This leads me to suspect that Proctor is being used to draw attention away from others in the British establishment who may still be alive. He is, in effect, being used as a fall guy; a relatively low level figure who can be sacrificed so that bigger names can escape scrutiny. Ed.

Harvey Proctor accuser ‘distressed’ by former MP’s denial

Rajeev Syal — The Guardian August 26, 2015

An alleged sexual abuse victim who has told police that Harvey Proctor raped and murdered two children has reportedly been left distressed by the former MP’s categoric denial.

The claimant, who is known only as Nick, is believed to be Scotland Yard’s main witness in an investigation into an alleged paedophile ring of establishment figures that dates back to the 1980s.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Proctor claimed that Nick’s allegations were untrue, had destroyed his reputation and his job, and smeared the reputation of eight other alleged ring members.

Mark Watts, the editor of the Exaro investigative journalism website which has been the main conduit for Nick’s claims, tweeted that the website has been in contact with Nick since Proctor’s press conference:

Operation Midland is investigating claims of an establishment paedophile ring in Dolphin Square, a luxury block of flats near Westminster, as well as at the Carlton Club and at other London locations in the 70s and 80s. Other members of the alleged paedophile ring include the late prime minister Edward Heath and the former home secretary Leon Brittan.

At the press conference Proctor disclosed new details of the inquiry which have been sent to his solicitors.

He said he had been accused by Nick of participating in two murders and aiding in a third murder of young boys, along with numerous other claims of torture and rape against Nick and other boys.

Addressing the allegations directly, Proctor told journalists: “I should be arrested, charged and prosecuted for murder and these awful crimes immediately so I can start the process of ridiculing these preposterous allegations in open court. Nick should be stripped of his anonymity and prosecuted for wasting police time and money. The paranoid police have pursued a homosexual witch-hunt on this issue, egged on by media, Labour MPs and a ragbag of internet fantasists.”

Scotland Yard declined to comment on Proctor’s press conference, although detectives had previously issued a statement saying officers found Nick’s allegations to be “credible and true”.

The story of Nick’s alleged abuse was broken by Exaro. Unusually, he was accompanied by a journalist from the website when he was interviewed by police from Operation Midland. Nick claimed the alleged abuse began in 1979, when he was handed to a group of powerful paedophiles by his father, who also abused him.

A film of Nick, showing only the back of his head to protect his identity, shows him to be well-spoken and articulate. Few other details have been released about him, other than that he is a 47-year-old businessman who was 11 when the alleged abuse began.

According to Proctor, Nick has claimed that he witnessed the former MP torturing one young boy with a knife before raping and strangling the victim. He also alleged that on one occasion, Heath intervened to stop Proctor from using a knife to mutilate Nick’s genitals.

Proctor, 68, said on Tuesday that he and Heath detested each other because of their political differences. He said it was unbelievable that he would have been invited to the prime minister’s home to take part in a sex attack. “It is unbelievable because it is not true. My situation has transformed from Kafkaesque bewilderment to black farce incredulity,” he said in his statement.

Proctor claimed that Brittan had been driven to his death by police action.

A retired general who Proctor says was named as part of the alleged paedophile ring has disclosed that he was interviewed by police, but not as a suspect. General Sir Hugh Beach told the Telegraph police had confirmed to him that no allegation of any kind had been made against him. The former deputy commander in chief of UK Land Forces said he had been interviewed once by officers but “not in any sense as a suspect”.

Proctor also named Sir Michael Hanley, who was director general of MI5 from 1972 to 1978 and died in 2001. In a statement on behalf of the family, Hanley’s daughter Sarah said: “Until this morning we knew of no alleged investigation by the Met into allegations against our father. Our father was a decent, loving, principled family man. These are unfounded allegations from an anonymous source and, as such, have no effect on our father’s good name.”


Russian and Iran Begin Talks on New Air Superiority Fighter Deal

News Brief — August 26, 2015

Sukhoi Su-30

Sukhoi Su-30

Russia and Iran have reportedly started talks on a deal involving the Su-30 fighter.
The Sukhoi Su-30 is a twin-engine, two-seat, multi-role fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep strike missions.
Conducted on the sidelines of the MAKS Air show near Moscow, the talks come as the two countries finalise delivery details for the S-300 air defence system.
Although the discussions are still only exploratory, the acquisition of the Su-30 would mark a significant upgrade in Iran’s air power.
While still serviceable, most of Iran’s front line interceptors are decades old and no match for the West’s more advanced air-superiority fighters. Russia’s Su-30 would alter that and put the Iranian Air Force on an equal footing with its potential adversaries in the West.
It remains to be seen whether Iran will purchase the highly manoeuvrable fighter but one area of defence that Iran is woefully deficient is in its lack of cutting edge air superiority fighters.
At present the best the Iranian Air Force has is the Russian Mig 29 Fulcrum, purchased 25-years-ago, and Grumman F-14 Tomcats, originally acquired during the reign of the Shah and before the Islamic Revolution.
Although Iran has upgraded its F-14 Tomcats with new avionics and locally developed missiles, they would still struggle against British Typhoons or American F-22s. The last U.S. F-14 Tomcats in service were retired from the USAF nearly a decade ago.
The recent agreement with Iran over its nuclear program has opened the way for fresh arms deals with the Islamic Republic.
Although Washington wouldn’t approve of arms deals with Iran it’s something that Russia would welcome. First it would bring in much needed foreign revenue to counter Western imposed trade embargoes on Russia.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, a well armed Iran would be a useful and willing ally in Russia’s ongoing face-off with the West.

‘UK surveillance is worse than 1984′ says UN privacy chief

Under the watchful eye of UK authorities: Merseyside police surveillance drone. Click to enlarge

The UN‘s newly appointed special rapporteur on privacy, Joseph Cannataci, has described digital surveillance in the UK as “worse” than anything imagined in George Orwell’s totalitarian dystopia 1984.

Speaking to the Guardian, Cannataci — who doesn’t own a Facebook account or use Twitter — lambasted the oversight of British digital surveillance as “a rather bad joke at its citizens’ expense”.

Warning against the steady erosion of privacy and increasing levels of government intrusion, he also drew sinister parallels with Orwell’s vision of a mass-surveilled society, adding that today’s reality was far worse than the fiction: “At least Winston [a character in Orwell’s 1984] was able to go out in the countryside and go under a tree and expect there wouldn’t be any screen, as it was called. Whereas today there are many parts of the English countryside where there are more cameras than George Orwell could ever have imagined.”

Cannataci, who holds posts as a professor of technology of law at the University of Groningen, and as head of the department of Information Policy and Governance at the University of Malta, also called for a “Geneva convention-style law” for the internet.

“Some people may not want to buy into it. But you know, if one takes the attitude that some countries will not play ball, then, for example, the chemical weapons agreement would never have come about.”

As part of his new role — which elevates digital privacy to the same level of importance as other human rights — Cannataci has vowed to begin systematically reviewing government policies and the business models of large corporations, which he accuses of “very often taking the data that you never even knew they were taking”.

Although the privacy chief admits that his mandate is more than likely “impossible to achieve in the next three years”, he stressed the importance of a “longer-term view” in an effort to help protect people’s data and safeguard their digital rights.


The Priceless Worth of a Love Centred Heart

Reflections in a Petri Dish — August 25, 2015

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

Jantoo Cartoon

One of the more interesting features of existence, as it presents itself these days, is the level of pervasive insanity that abounds from sea to shining sea and since we are all surrounded by seas, even if we are many miles inland, that means it can be found just about everywhere and what that means is that it either passes for normal or those observing are themselves so crazy that they don’t even notice. Things like this are a common fare but you don’t need an endless litany of links from me to tell you what you already know about the state of the world.
On the surface one might gravitate toward some level of despair about the terrible state of things as the Satanic Cabal unleashes its chaos and confusion upon the world, in this last gasp effort to harvest every soul that is not anchored in the ineffable. The winds of discord are wailing down the pipeline of the continuum of end times that are not ending but simply the beginning of something else and what that something else is… none of us save the ineffable knows. This is why faith in the ineffable is so important because it aligns you with the greater plan of the almighty. It makes you one with the ONE.
It is not necessary for us to know the details or to make plans of our own because as we have all heard, “If you want to make God laugh, make plans. I have one plan and that is to serve the ineffable to the limits of my ability and that means to see everything as a special dealing of the ineffable with my soul. When you see the whole of your life and every event in it, no matter how small, as an interaction between you and the ineffable, you are exactly where you need to be. It is not ‘not knowing’ that creates problems for us, it is ‘knowing’, because all of our knowing is limited and that means that as long as we think we know we are walking blind. There is only one thing we can know and that is that there is an ineffable and that the ineffable loves us and to the degree that we surrender to this understanding, to that degree, we are able to receive the grace of the ineffable.
If everything falls apart around us, it is only another change in the ever changing infrastructure of appearances. What will never fall apart is the shining rock of the spirit within. There is no life. There are no appearances and no consciousness except that it is expressed in us by the ineffable. It is not a matter of good or evil. It is not a matter of any works performed by us because we can perform nothing except that the ineffable provides the power to do so. All that matters is the degree of our love for the ineffable and the level of sincerity and commitment contained within that love. It is love that defines us, just as it is the lack of love as well. I will return to two pieces of scripture that associate with this and which are absolutely and eternally true; “If God is for me, who can be against me?” AND… “greater is that which is within you than that which is in the world.” Ponder these thoughts and consider the meaning of them; given that they are real and true.
Think of your connection with the ineffable as a matter of electrical cabling. Is it a slender line that can be parted through stress or frayed by trial or circumstance? Is it something that can carry only so much current? Is it a thick and powerful cable that can carry a serious amount of power? This is something that we build by the exercise of faith. To the extent that we focus our attention upon the ineffable through every moment of our day, we build that cable. The slender lines are woven together and built into an unbreakable connection. One strand is not strong enough to endure the vicissitudes of testing and adversity but many strands woven together can possess an enormous strength. Just as one small stick is easily broken in our hands, many sticks in a bundle are not.
We build that shining city, that kingdom of the heart by a relentless application of devotion. It is built block by block, every time we tell the ineffable of our love for him/her/it. The ineffable takes the shape that it is given in the heart and mind of the one who loves the ineffable. The ineffable becomes all things to the one who loves the ineffable. There comes a time when there is nothing but the ineffable and what a shining and inexpressible splendor that is. No one who has ever lived has ever been capable of describing the wonders upon wonders that come along with the love of the almighty. As scripture has very clearly revealed to us; “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
A lot of us have had some significant problems in recent times. The amount of people who have contacted me about their own episodes is startling. It is like some kind of flu season. It is not hard to understand how these assaults on our being can throw us off center and make us doubt all the things we believe to be true at other times. This is when we need to remind ourselves of all the good things that are true about us that we might not be paying enough attention to, such as, all the people that we are not, like this and all the things we don’t do, like this.
We are not rich and indifferent and contemptuous of those who are not rich and indifferent. We are not making war on primitive cultures in pursuit of their resources and geo-political advantage. We are not haunting the malls in pursuit of the latest fashion accessory, or planted in front of our TV’s and watching an endless redundancy of terminal dumbass. The television is the altar of worship for the majority of those caught up in the maelstrom of materialism. We are not a great many things and people that if we were, would most certainly be grounds for a terrible depression if we had the intelligence to feel it. Consider the meditations of your heart and how this defines what you are, regardless of how you appear to be in the eyes of the calculating cynics who measure everything according to its status in the world.
It should be obvious to anyone capable of objective thought that there are forces in this world which are directed and focused on making the human race appear as ignorant and ridiculous as it is possible to make them out to be. We are not engaged in that. This is cause for celebration. Simply what you know about yourself, regardless of any lack of success …or possession of fortune and fame you may not have, is cause for celebration. Being on the right path, despite the costs and the continuing uncertainty of your course is reason for celebration. Do we have any idea of the incalculable worth of a heart centered on the love of one’s creator? We do not, or we would be swimming with joy at the possibility of performing it at every turn.
We need to burn away the mist of unknowing that shrouds our consciousness from the blinding light of the ineffable that both fills us and surrounds us on all sides. We cannot see it because of our state of separateness from our real self. Our false self walks in a false light and only illuminates those things that are meant to be seen in a false light. When the everlasting light of the love of the ineffable breaks upon our consciousness, ALL of the objects of the false world disappear from our sight, or are illuminated as what they really are. All of the dangers and deceptions of the false world are burned away and no longer have any power over us at all. Things can happen to us on our way but they are nothing more than instructional events meant to keep us on our sure course to the kingdom of the ineffable. We enter that kingdom when our consciousness rises to a sufficient level that we can see and experience it. Heaven is not in some far away location deep in the distance of the endlessly reaching sky above you. Heaven begins where your feet touch the ground. You walk in the kingdom of Heaven by acting as a citizen of that realm and by embracing the code of conduct that verifies your right to be there. You do it by believing you are doing it, regardless of being able to see or comprehend it. If you are determined in your intention to realize this, it will materialize around you. It will.
If we see everything that happens to us as an expression of the ineffable working on the evolution of our soul, it will be realized as exactly that. If you want to see everything as blind chance and coincidence you will see nothing and there will be no deeper meaning. It is difficult to persevere against the seemingly unending force of opposition. It can be very difficult but… it is not impossible and so long as the ineffable is walking that course with you, seen or unseen, it is a certainty. The ineffable does not fail. We might fail but the ineffable does not and if we are aligned with the ineffable we will not fail either. Love is always victorious and the motive engine of the ineffable is love.

Syrian Refugee Camps in Turkey Become ISIL ‘Playgrounds’ – Syrian Delegate

Svetlana Alexandrova — Sputnik News August 26, 2015

Tarek Alhamad, a member of the Syrian Social National Party, arrived in the Russian capital of Moscow on Sunday as part of a delegation of government officials and moderate opposition members.

Alhamad, who met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa Mikhail Bogdanov on Monday, said “Turkey is in a double trap.”

“Refugees cause economic and social tension inside the country, while refugee camps are turning into the playground for ISIL where ISIL fighters can easily move around, train and recruit new members to send them to Syria,” Alhamad told Sputnik.

Turkey is estimated to be currently hosting some one million Syrian refugees in the wake of a civil war that broke out in 2011, according to the UN Refugee Agency. About 217,000 refugees live in 22 camps on Turkish territory.

For several years Turkey has vigorously advocated for the formation of a “safe zone” along its 511-mile southern border with Syria, asking also for greater US and NATO-member involvement to end the Syrian civil war.

The United States denies having agreed with Turkey to set up a planned 37-mile ISIL-free safe zone.

Ankara recently joined the United States in airstrikes against ISIL on Syrian and Iraqi territories following a spate of terrorist attacks across Turkey last month.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s proposal to establish a humanitarian safe zone along its border with Syria is an unrealistic campaign slogan that is set up to fail, Tarek Alhamad said.

Alhamad, a member of the Syrian Social National Party, arrived in the Russian capital of Moscow on Sunday as part of a delegation of government officials and moderate opposition members. The group met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa, Mikhail Bogdanov, on Monday.

“I think the problem of the refugee camps cannot be solved easily and the plan of creating a buffer zone will fail,” Alhamad stressed.

The delegate pointed out that the idea to set up the safe zone “is just a slogan for Erdogan’s new election campaign and will not solve the migrant crisis for Jordan and Turkey.”

Reports emerged on Monday that Jordan was considering the creation of a safe zone stylized after the Turkish proposal. Ankara has actively advocated the establishment of a 31-mile safe zone along its 511-mile southern border with Syria.

Erdogan announced early elections last week after Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu returned a mandate after failing to form a coalition government. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) failed to gain a majority in the June elections for the first time since 2002.

“We know that Erdogan calls for another snap election and promises his people as part of his election campaign that he can solve the Syrian refugee problem,” Alhamad told Sputnik.

However, the diplomat stressed, the proposed plan is a “dead circle.”

Turkey is estimated to be currently hosting over one million Syrian refugees, after a civil war broke out in 2011, according to the UN Refugee Agency. Some 217,000 refugees live in 22 camps on Turkish territory. The number of Syrian refugees in Turkey is expected to rise to 1.7 million in 2015, according to the UN.


As Gaza Lies in Ruins, The NY Times Blames the Victims

Timeswarp — August 24, 2015

The devastation in Gaza in the aftermath of the Israeli operation.

The devastation in Gaza in the aftermath of the Israeli operation.

Israel’s attacks on Gaza ended a year ago, but the strip remains an expanse of rubble and devastation. Who’s to blame for this outrage? The New York Times has an answer: everyone but Israel.

Jodi Rudoren comes up with this response in a story that aims to whitewash Israel’s brutal treatment of Gaza by blaming the Palestinian victims along with the international community for the lack of rebuilding. It is all summed up in the story’s subhead, “Political Infighting and Lack of Funds Stymie a Reconstruction Mechanism.”

Her article takes pains to present the process as a collaborative project between the Palestinian Authority, Israel and the United Nations, and she is hazy about Israel’s role, describing it as nothing more than “involvement in approving projects and participants.”

Rudoren furthers her efforts in a single paragraph that absolves Israel completely: “[The Palestinian minister of housing], other Palestinian leaders and United Nations representatives all said that Israel had done its part in reasonable time and allowed cement into Gaza. Empty coffers, they said, are the primary problem.”

Times readers, however, never learn the direct quotes or the names of the “leaders” and “representatives” that would help substantiate this claim, nor does Rudoren explain what “Israel’s part” actually refers to here.

In fact, Israel controls everything that goes into Gaza, from people to foodstuffs to building material, and the agreed-on process for rebuilding the strip—the “reconstruction mechanism” referred to in the subhead—is built solely on Israeli demands. (Israel also blocks Gaza traffic by sea and has the full cooperation of the Egyptian government on that border as well.)

Although the United Nations and the Palestinian Authority have roles in the process, Israel determines who gets building materials, what they get and in what amounts. As Harvard-based Gaza expert Sara Roy notes, the two major documents outlining the reconstruction process “read like security plans, carefully laying out Israeli concerns and the ways in which the United Nations will accommodate them.”

Roy adds, “Israel will have to approve all projects and their locations and will be able to veto any part of the process on security grounds.” Moreover, she writes, “No mechanism for accountability or transparency will apply to Israel.”

Without doubt, Palestinian bureaucracy, donor fears of yet another attack on Gaza and other factors come into play in reconstruction efforts, but Rudoren ignores the major element, which is the Israeli blockade.

Her story, in fact, never refers to the eight-year blockade of Gaza and makes only vague mention of Israeli “control” of the enclave. Readers are left without any relevant context.

Rudoren’s article also omits other details that would place Israel’s role in a different light: the fact that by July of this year it had allowed the passage less than 1 percent of the construction materials needed to adequately house Gaza residents or that as of May, a total of 20 schools (kindergarten to college level) completely destroyed by Israel had yet to be repaired.

Readers never learn, for instance, that aid agencies in Gaza were forced to rely on temporary building materials as the Israeli-mandated process kept concrete, cement and steel supplies to a trickle. They also never learn the sequel to this chapter: that Israel stepped in to squelch the effort just as it was gaining momentum.

The project was run by Catholic Relief Services, which began using lumber to build temporary homes for the displaced residents this year, and media reports in February and March stated that 70 had been built and 40 families had moved into the new houses. CRS had plans to construct more than 100 additional wooden homes, but in April the program came to an end when Israel suddenly banned all lumber for housing.

Here we can see how Israel actually operates in the opaque rebuilding process mentioned in Rudoren’s piece. Times readers, however, never learn of this sad narrative nor of many others that would reveal how Israeli actions are destroying the economy and depressing the living conditions in Gaza.

And yet, the Times story would have us believe that Israel has “done its part” in the reconstruction of Gaza, ignoring the obvious: that Israel alone has complete control of its borders with the strip, and if Israel so willed, Gaza residents would have moved out of the rubble long ago.

Footnote — August 26, 2015

It is worth noting that the former BBC Director General Mark Thompson is now president and chief executive of the New York Times company.
While still in his former post, Thompson had generated considerable controversy after he had refused to broadcast a charity appeal for aid to help the people of Gaza rebuild their homes following the Israeli Gaza offensive 2008-2009.
Interestingly the BBC did eventually broadcast Palestinian charity appeals. But only after Thompson had moved on and the corporation was given the go-ahead by Israel.
Apart from being central to preventing the broadcast of the charity appeal, Thompson has also been implicated in efforts to conceal the extent of the Jimmy Savile scandal when the story first broke. The BBC had employed Savile for decades during his time as a prolific sexual abuser.
Seems like Mark Thompson has found his home-from-home at the New York Times. Ed.

Most Gays Reject Illuminati Agenda, one says

This is what a lesbian looks like. It’s hard to find a picture of an unattractive lesbian due to the Orwellian mind control exercised by Google. Mark says gay and lesbian activists are one dimensional, and not representative of gays as a whole.

I am a gay man fully awake to the New World Order plan. I am not a lone voice speaking out in the gay community. The majority of gay & lesbian people feel hijacked by external forces who use our legitimate concerns to undermine society.
The Illuminati Gay Agenda is not supported by most gays. This agenda is neither gay nor friendly to humanity; it’s all about their plot to take over and coerce society in a Satanic direction.
The LGBT activists, militants, both Gay & Lesbian are a separate species to normal gays. Inherently nasty, they are driven by a victim identity mind-set, looking for perceived persecutions and corresponding revenge. Socially these individuals are one-dimensional and single-faceted people.
In contrast, I am like a cut diamond with many facets: gender, race, religion, culture, nationality, plus things such as skills, hobbies & interests, politics, philosophy and sexuality.
LGBT activists can talk only about sexual orientation and gay rights. Ask them about anything else; they have nothing to give and unable to listen. Remove sexuality and they are very sad and boring people. It’s their whole identity! They have a problem relating to people normally. They are very insecure, self-hating and paranoid.

US To Send Lockheed Martin F-22 Fighter Jets To Europe To Counter Russia Amid Ukraine Crisis

Sneha Shankar — International Business Times August 25, 2015

The United States is set to send Lockheed Martin Corp.’s F-22 fighter jets to Europe to help NATO allies counter Russia’s intervention in Ukraine, U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah James said Monday. The latest deployment is reportedly in line with U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s recent call for a strong and balanced approach toward Russia.

“Russia’s military activity in the Ukraine continues to be of great concern to us and to our European allies,” James said at a news conference at the Pentagon, according to Reuters, adding: “For the air force an F-22 deployment is certainly on the strong side of the coin.”

The deployment is being seen as a contributor to tackle Russian military aggression in eastern Ukraine. However, it is not clear how many planes will be sent to Europe or when the deployment will take place. The F-22 fighter jets have also been used in Washington’s strikes against the Islamic State group.

General Mark Welsh James, the air force chief of staff, reportedly said that the jets’ inaugural training deployment would help the U.S. forces to train with NATO partners in Europe and also test the F-22’s ability to fight with the Eurofighter and other advanced planes. The deployment is also expected to give the pilots more experience in handling the jets — which have been previously used in Japan and South Korea — in the European terrain.

The deployment would take place under the European Reassurance Initiative (ERI), created last June by U.S. President Barack Obama to enhance NATO’s defenses amid the crisis in Ukraine, according to the Daily Express.

The F-22 is a twin-engine single-seat jet that can fly at speeds of up to 1,500 miles an hour with a range of almost 2,000 miles, the Daily Express reported. The plane costs $150 million and came into service in 2005.


EPA Permits Unlimited Use of Toxic Coal Fly Ash in Chemical Geoengineering Operations

Posted on August 17, 2015 by State of the Nation — via The Peoples August 23, 2015


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is well known for working directly with industry lawyers and lobbyists to ensure that corporate interests are served first, second and third. Whether it’s rule-making or regulation-changing at the federal or state level, the high-paid corporate lobbyists are always the first through the EPA door. Who has not heard or read on the internet about the “Environmental Protection Racket”?

With that understanding the EPA has just committed the biggest and most transparent blunder in its history. The profound and unparalleled transgression against the American people and environment concerns coal fly ash. Coal fly ash is one of four types coal combustion residuals (CCRs) which are produced by industrial and power plant coal-burning. Current air pollution control standards require that it be captured prior to release by the appropriate pollution control equipment.

Fly ash is generally captured by electrostatic precipitators or other particle filtration equipment before the flue gases reach the chimneys of coal-fired power plants.[1]

That is one half of the context of the EPA’s historic violation of the public trust. The other half concerns the fact that coal fly ash has just been identified as perhaps the largest component of the chemtrail aerosols which are sprayed worldwide by chemical geoengineering programs. In other words the coal-burning industry is rightly required to remove the coal fly ash in order to meet pollution control standards, so that it can be sprayed right back into the atmosphere via ongoing chemtrail operations.

After a long regulatory process, the EPA published a final ruling in December 2014, which establishes that coal fly ash does not have to be classified as a hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).[1]

Because it directly concerns the air that we all breathe, that December 2014 ruling by the EPA subjects every U.S resident to dangerous and unacceptable levels of highly toxic air pollution. Not only has the EPA allowed for a perilous reclassification of coal fly ash, it has permitted the ubiquitous chemical geoengineering programs to pollute the skies and waters of the USA with chemically-mobile aluminum, as well as with mercury, lead, arsenic and various radioactive solids.


Ground-breaking, Peer-Reviewed Paper Confirms Coal Fly Ash in Chemtrails

It was the high integrity investigative research of J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D. which confirmed that the very same toxic coal fly ash captured in the smokestacks of coal-fired power plants is used to generate immense chem-cloud cover across the planet. In his landmark, peer-reviewed, scientific research paper recently published at the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health[2] he confirmed that coal fly ash is a primary constituent used in the chemical engineering formulas which are utilized to produce chemtrails.

Massive chemtrail operations are now conducted day and night throughout the skies of the world. The chemtrails then unfailingly and quickly morph into chem-clouds. The chemtrail operations are most commonly executed prior to forecasted rainfall, thunderstorms and other low pressure weather events. In this way the chemical aerosols naturally undergo their predictable reactions and breakdown, and eventually fall to the Earth.

Dr. Herndon has performed rigorous test studies which have confirmed that the mix of chemical compounds used in chemtrail aerosols is almost identical to those found in coal fly ash. As follows:

Two methods are employed: (1) Comparison of 8 elements analyzed in rainwater, leached from aerosolized particulates, with corresponding elements leached into water from coal fly ash in published laboratory experiments, and (2) Comparison of 14 elements analyzed in dust collected outdoors on a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter with corresponding elements analyzed in un-leached coal fly ash material. The results show: (1) the assemblage of elements in rainwater and in the corresponding experimental leachate are essentially identical. At a 99% confidence interval, they have identical means (T-test) and identical variances (F-test); and (2) the assemblage of elements in the HEPA dust and in the corresponding average un-leached coal fly ash are likewise essentially identical.[2]


Chemically-Mobile Aluminum is the Real Problem with Chemtrail-Disseminated Coal Fly Ash

The critical point here is that coal fly ash is the primary ingredient of the basic chemtrail formula. Coal fly ash contains a high percentage of aluminum oxide, one of the most prevalent chemical compounds found in coal fly ash. It is elemental aluminum which is found in unusually high concentrations in both the water and air wherever chemical geoengineering via chemtrail operations have been conducted with regularity.

Consider the following observations about chemically mobile aluminum made by Dr. Herndon:

Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 2.02.33 PM

Given the enormous volume of coal fly ash that is sprayed into the troposphere and stratosphere by chemical geoengineering programs, there is now a tremendous amount of chemically-mobile aluminum that makes its way into the ambient air of human populations everywhere. The effects of this manmade environmental catastrophe and ever-evolving public health disaster are only now beginning to be understood.

For instance the olfactory nerve of a human being is surrounded by what us essentially an attenuated blood-brain barrier. Because of this little-known fact, the quality of the air that we breathe can have major consequences. If we are constantly breathing aluminum-laden air, that aluminum can end up traversing the blood-brain barrier and entering the brain tissue. Witness the explosion of those diseases which are associated with aluminum toxicity and/or poisoning, as noted by Dr. Herndon.


A true blood-brain barrier is 8 cells in thickness. The number of cells which constitute the layer around the olfactory nerve is only 4 to 5 cells thick.[3]

Animal life is also being greatly harmed by the incessant exposure to atmospheric and waterborne aluminum. Birds, in particular, are now highly vulnerable as they fly through chem-clouds and low-hanging chemtrailed air on a regular basis. Their delicate lungs and upper respiratory systems are being overwhelmed by all of the toxic pollutants being delivered by chemtrails. Likewise, the land-dwelling animals are susceptible to the contaminated water and food supply as the toxicities bio-accumulate up the food chain.

So, too, is there profound and pervasive injury being inflicted on the entire plant kingdom. Aluminum has now been shown to accumulate in the roots of plants which grow under chemtrailed skies. The significant increase in the amount of bio-available aluminum due to rains from chem-clouds has contributed considerably to soil acidification. The higher concentrations of aluminum are stunting the normal development of plant roots, which has in turn reduced plant growth.

This sole development, which has occurred since the beginning of chemical geoengineering utilizing coal fly ash, represents the single greatest environmental catastrophe of the modern era. And, it is the Environmental Protection Agency that has enabled the whole misguided endeavor. In so doing, the EPA has profoundly violated its charter by permitting the spraying of so much coal fly ash into the skies across America.


By ignoring the systematic and intentional “dumping” of so much coal fly ash into the air, onto the land and into the waters of the USA, the EPA has essentially relinquished its role as America’s environmental guardian. The agency has, in effect, set itself up for closure, for it no longer serves the people or the environment. On the contrary the EPA often works aggressively against the best interest of the citizenry (remember the BP Gulf oil spill and Corexit).

The terrible tragedy here is that the EPA has gone out of its way to perform in a manner that is completely contrary to its statutory mission. They have functioned like the physician, who has taken the Hippocratic Oath to “First, Do No Harm“, and then ends up becoming a serial mass murderer … LITERALLY!

Does the EPA ever stop to consider just how many lives are being taken by the coal fly ash-driven chemtrail operations? Do they ever wonder how much pain and suffering their lack of environmental stewardship has caused the American people?

Dr. Herndon has quite poignantly posed additional questions about this worsening public health disaster as follows:

The Primacy of Jewish Genes

Gilad Atzmon — August 25, 2015

The Guardian reported this week that a study of Holocaust survivors revealed that the Jewish trauma is passed on to its children’s genes. The conclusion from a research team at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital led by Rachel Yehuda stems from the genetic study of 32 Jewish men and women who had either been interned in a Nazi concentration camp, witnessed or experienced torture or who had had to hide during the second world war.
Unlike The Guardian, that published a dry report of this ‘scientific revelation’, I am puzzled. What is the meaning of this scientific news? Does it suggest that the kids of Holocaust survivors are better adapted to the next holocaust or does it suggest alternatively that the heirs of Shoah survivors have inherited the trauma and are now entitled to German reparation money until the end of time?
On the other hand, if Zionists are telling the truth and Jews have been persecuted throughout their history and the Jewish past is dotted with holocausts, then one would expect the ‘trauma gene’ to be widely spread amongst Jews anyway. I am confused.
It is obvious that Rachel Yehuda, her Jewish team and the Jewish hospital were particularly interested in Jewish genes and Jewish suffering, but are the new findings universal? What about African Americans who survived slavery and who are still subject to institutional discrimination and constant abuse, are they also passing their trauma through their genes or is it only Jews who possess this special physiological capacity? And what about the people who suffer at the hands of Jewish nationalism or Israeli terror?  Did Yehuda bother to find out whether Palestinians are also passing genetic information to their successors? Obviously not and for a good reason. Unlike the Nazi Judeocide that had a start and an end in time, the on-going Palestinian plight has no foreseeable end. The babies born in Gaza today do not need to inherit trauma from their parents through genetics; trauma will be delivered to them directly by the Israeli army and the Israeli air force.
In the years that followed the Shoah, some Jewish psychologists and writers expounded on the meaning of post-traumatic stress disorder (Post-TSD). I have always been confused by the term. I grew up in Israel and was surrounded by many Holocaust survivors – people with numbers tattooed on their arms. Some of them suffered enormously along the war. Yet they were generally quite ordinary people. Some were kind, others less so, some were clever and charming, others not so much. The Holocaust was not much of an issue for them as far as I could tell. They wanted to get away from that life. If anything they tried to forget. But often their children were slightly different. Many were overwhelmingly possessed by the Shoah and made it into their new religion. My study of the Holocaust religion led me to define the notion of PRE Traumatic Stress disorder (Pre-TSD) – the unique ability to be tormented by an imaginary fictional event in the phantasmic future. It is the Pre-TSD condition that makes contemporary Jewish politics into a dangerous affair for Jews and the rest of us. It is Pre-TSD that enables the sufferer to see an existential threat everywhere and in anything. If I am correct about Pre-TSD, we may even learn that within the context of Jewish trauma, it is the children who pass trauma onto the genes of their survivor parents. I am certain that Mount Sinai and Rachel Yehuda can find at least 32 members of that community that would support such post-epigenetic findings.
Meanwhile, we are clearly moving into a new phase in the study of collective Jewish phobia. The Jewish trauma now resides in the genes reports the Guardian. If true, the Holocaust religion is now forever engraved in Jewish physiology. This is devastating news for anti Semites and Jew haters – no point in tormenting the Jews anymore for the Jews are born tormented.

Syria Shoots Down Israeli Warplane F-16 Bomber, Using Russian S-300 Air Defense System

Ziad Fadel — Syrian Perspective via Global Research Aug 23, 2015

GR Editor’s Note:

Syrian air defenceThe shooting down of an Israeli warplane by Syria has not been reported by Western and Israeli media sources. According to Sputnik, on August 21, “the Israeli Air Force resumed airstrikes on Western Syria, targeting a government army base at Khan Al-Sheih in Damascus province and another in the al-Quneitra province after a six-hour halt in attacks that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights.”

Fars News Agency (FNA) also confirmed the Israeli attacks and the shooting down of an Israeli fighter plane

The Syrian air defense system shot down an Israeli warplane violating the Arab country’s air space.

The Israeli fighter jet was targeted over the city of Al-Quneitra on Friday.

Israel regularly violates the Syrian airspace and it launches missile attacks against the Arab country.

On Friday, the Israeli Air Force resumed airstrikes on Western Syria, targeting Brigade 68 Base in Khan Al-Sheih in Damascus province and Brigade 90 Base in the al-Quneitra province after a six hour halt in attacks that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights.

*     *     *

Yesterday, Friday, August 21, 2015 in the early hours, Damascus time, an Israeli US made F-16 fighter-bomber, flew into Syrian airspace brazenly and fired at Brigade 68 and, then, turned and flew back toward Brigade 90 in Qunaytra in order to insure a safe landing in occupied Palestine if the aircraft was struck.  It was struck.  An SA-9 from the Iftiraas Air Defense Base and an SA-2 near the Khalkhaala AB were fired.  But, the technical wizardry was most on display when an S-300 (SA-10 “Grumble) super-air-defense missile was fired from the Republican Guard base near the Mazza AB at the foot of Qaasiyoon Mountain west of Damascus.  This was done so that the F-16’s electronic countermeasures would first fix on the SA-2 and SA-9 while the S-300 plowed forward to exterminate the vermin inside the Israeli aircraft.   The S-300 vaporized the Israeli bomber.  No evidence was seen of the pilot ejecting.  Instead, eyewitness accounts described a ball of fire over the Golan and the remains scattering into the air over the Huleh Valley in Palestine.

Also, the Israelis lost 2 helicopters while flying missions over the Golan Heights in an effort to bolster the sagging morale of the Takfiri rats of Nusra/Alqaeda and Al-Ittihaad Al-Islaami li-Ajnaad Al-Shaam.   The 2 helicopters went down over the area near Qunaytra City and were reportedly shot down by shoulder fired, heat-seeking missiles deployed throughout the Syrian Army.

Syria’s Right to Self Defense

It had to happen, sooner or later.  The seeming diffidence of the Syrian brass had to transform into a bolder and more pugnacious articulation of Syria’s right to self-defense.  With Russia now inevitably bound to the Syrian government for reasons discussed at length on our website; and Iran, now dazzled by a new role to play in regional politics;  the green light turned on, finally, with Moscow withdrawing all restrictions on the use of advanced weaponry sold to the Syrian military.  If you want to know what the former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Martin Dempsey, meant when he told Congress Syria had a “robust air defense system”, the Zionists just found out for themselves.

Yesterday, there was despondence after Israel assaulted Qunaytra and killed civilians seated in a public vehicle.  The Israelis also killed one Syrian soldier and wounded several others in the Brigade 68 base.

But, the Syrian Army Chief of Staff, in consultation with the president and the Defense Minister, had no intention of letting this episode slide by especially in light of President Putin’s recent meeting with the Turkish ambassador in Moscow during which he flatly told the diplomat that relations with Turkey would be severed if Erdoghan did not stop supporting terrorism.  It also came just after Sergei Lavrov called the Saudi foreign minister an “imbecile” just as the latter was renouncing any intention to treat with the Syrian government.  There is a new belligerency in both Moscow and Teheran and it is being translated into action over Syria.

Chinese stocks tumble once again as ‘Black Monday’ looks set to plunge towards ‘Black Tuesday’

Samual Shen, Pete Sheney — The Mirror August 25, 2015

Black Monday, August 24, 2015, the the Dow Jones was down by as much as 1,000 points or 5 percent.

Black Monday, August 24, 2015, the the Dow Jones was down by as much as 1,000 points or 5 percent.

‘Black Monday’ could be set to creep into ‘Black Tuesday’ as Chinese stocks slumped again, following a devastating day which saw billions wiped off markets across the world.

The Shanghai Composite Index tumbled a huge 6.4 per cent in the first few minutes of trading after plunging 8.5 per cent yesterday.

It recovered slightly, ending the morning session 4.3 per cent down and has now fallen below 3,000 points – seen by many as a key threshold which could lead to panic selling if breached.

This morning’s fall was prompted by investors dumping shares after yesterday’s grim Black Monday that battered global markets but failed to prompt fresh rescue measures from Beijing.

The Shenzhen Composite Index for China’s smaller second exchange lost 4.6%.

The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 3.9 percent, to 3,147.76 points, also paring some of its losses when trading opened.

China’s fall was the latest in a series of jarring declines that have defied multibillion-dollar government efforts to stem a slide in prices following an explosive market boom.

The flagship indexes, which have lost more than 16 percent in August, are heading for their worst monthly performance in six years, barring a sharp rebound in the final days.

Hong Kong stocks fared better than mainland ones on Tuesday.

The Hang Seng index reversed early losses and was up 1.6 percent at lunch time, to 21,595.74 points.

The Hong Kong China Enterprises Index, which tracks big Chinese companies listed in the city, gained 0.5 percent, to 9,646.01.

On Monday, China stocks fell nearly 9 percent in the worst trading session since 2007, triggering a ferocious global market rout amid deepening concerns over the state of the Chinese economy.

But no policy or emergency rescue measures were announced by Beijing overnight. The absence of any sentiment-soothing editorials in Tuesday’s state media strengthened views that the Chinese government now has little will to prop up share prices.

“Global investors are cannibalising each other. Calling it a market disaster is not an overstatement,” Zhou Lin, an analyst at Huatai Securities, told Reuters.

“The mood of panic is dominating the market… and I don’t see any signs of meaningful government intervention.”

In a sign of rapidly shrinking risk appetites, outstanding margin loans – money investors borrow to buy stocks – fell for the fifth day in a row in Shanghai.

They totalled 795.9 billion yuan (£78billion) on Monday, or 46 percent below the June 18 peak of 1.48 trillion yuan.

“Stocks in the U.S. and Europe are all slumping, so it’s not just a China issue. It’s the start of a global financial crisis,” said Jerry Xu, a 35-year-old retail investor in Shanghai.

Striking a different note, he said: “From another perspective, it shows China’s huge global clout.”

Banking is the only sector that moved into the positive territory by midday, amid signs that lower valuation of lenders – many trade below their net asset value – were attracting bargain hunters.

Tech and energy shares were among the sell-off’s worst casualties.

In Hong Kong, most sectors rose. Among the main ones, only energy and materials were in the red.

Monday’s 8.5 per cent loss for the Shanghai index triggered a global selloff


Is China Getting the Greek Treatment? — August 24, 2015

chinese_small_investors_009“The Illuminati want a country to be in monstrous debt so they can crash its economy at will, and use the IMF to hijack the country’s political system and major corporations.It is likely that China will experience an economic collapse once it reaches the desired level of development.”
‘Every province in China is Greece. Why aren’t they imploding like Greece?’ (2011)
David Richards, now 27, teaches English in Mongolia. He was living in China in 2011.

David Richards — from 28/12/2011

The mainstream media generally portray the US as a dying giant and China as an unstoppable rising power.
And yet, both countries have virtually the same debt-to-GDP levels. The US has $15 trillion worth of debt and a GDP of just over $14 trillion, while China has a GDP of $5.8 trillion and debts of $5.7 trillion.
So why is China portrayed as being strong? Because, as the Goldman Sachs graph shows, over the next 40-years, the Illuminati plan to weaken the US and strengthen China. Economics are a veil for an agenda.
China is picked to be the economic powerhouse of the New World Order.
A 2003 projection of the world’s economies by Goldman Sachs ‘predicts’ that China’s GDP will overtake the US in 2040. By 2050 China’s GDP will have reached $45,000 billion, leaving the US a distant second with $35,000 billion. Germany, the powerhouse of the EU, will only have a GDP of $2,500 billion.

The Big List Of 33 Things That Are Going To Happen In September 2015

By Michael Snyder — The End of the American Dream Aug 19, 2015

Is September 2015 going to be a month that changes history?  For months, there has been an unprecedented amount of buzz all over the Internet about what is going to happen in September.  And without a doubt, we are going to witness a convergence of events during that month that is quite remarkable.  What I have attempted to do in this article is to put together a list of things that we know will happen next month.  Some of the lists that I have seen contain things that cannot be proven or that are simply inaccurate.  And of course it is very likely that some things will happen in September that we cannot anticipate right now.  I am just providing the information that I have at this time, and it is up to you and your family to prepare for what you believe will happen.  The following is my big list of 33 things that are going to happen in September 2015…

September 1 – This marks the beginning of FEMA’s annual “National Preparedness Month

September 7 – Labor Day

September 11 – The 14th anniversary (7+7) of 9/11

September 11 – The last day of trading on Wall Street before the end of the Shemitah year

September 12 – Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour opens in the United States.  The first stop is in Washington D.C. and according to Holly Deyo the “opening theme is Desecration of The Bride and Arrival of Fallen Angels”

September 12 and September 13 – Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, a leading authority in Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, has indicated that the Messiah that the Jewish people are expecting could come at this time

Black Monday, August 24, 2015, the the Dow Jones was down by as much as 1,000 points or 5 percent.

September 13 – The last day of the Shemitah year.  During the last two Shemitah cycles, we witnessed record-breaking stock market crashes on the very last day of the Shemitah year (Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar).  For example, if you go back to September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in all of U.S. history up until that time.  The Dow plunged 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.  On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time in the United States.  Now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began in the fall of 2014, and it ends on September 13th, 2015.

September 14 – Rosh Hashanah

September 14 – The first day of trading on Wall Street after the end of the Shemitah year

September 15 – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date.  It has been widely reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which will give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state shortly after the new session begins.  Up until now, the U.S. has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama has already indicated that things may be different this time around.  It would be extremely difficult to overstate the significance of this.

September 15 – The Jade Helm military exercises are scheduled to end

September 17 – If there is going to be a rate hike in September, this is probably when the Federal Reserve will do it

September 17 – This is the deadline for Congress to vote on Obama’s deal with Iran

September 17 Constitution Day – most Americans do not even know that this holiday exists

September 18The Days of Awe conference in Sandpoint, Idaho – Christians from all over the nation will be gathering to call out to God in prayer and to repent for the sins of our country

September 20 to September 26 – The “World Week For Peace in Palestine Israel” sponsored by the World Council of Churches

September 23 – Yom Kippur

September 23 – The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, also known as “the Feast of the Sacrifice”, begins

September 23 – Pope Francis arrives at the White House to meet with Barack Obama

September 23 – The 266th Pope will be meeting with the president of the United States on the 266th day of the year.  Some have suggested that “something is being birthed” on that day since 266 days is the average length of the human gestation period.

September 24 – The Pope addresses a joint session of the U.S. Congress

September 25 – On May 14th, 2014 French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius famously proclaimed that we had only 500 days to avoid “climate chaos”. His time frame of 500 days ends on September 25th.

September 26 and 27 – The Pope will be traveling to Philadelphia for the “2015 World Meeting of Families

September 28 – The first day of the Feast of Tabernacles

September 28 – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015.  This blood moon will be a “supermoon” and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem.

Due to the ending of the Shemitah year and numerous other factors, there is rampant speculation that a stock market crash is going to happen in the United States during the month of September.  Previously, I have expressed my view that a major global financial crisis is imminent, but my warning covers all of the remaining months of 2015.  Since I cannot prove that a stock market crash will happen next month, I have left it off the list.  But without a doubt, we are entering the danger zone.

There is also lots of speculation about unusual activity at the Large Hadron Collider during the month of September.  In my research, I have not yet come across anything that confirms that.  If you have solid information concerning this, please send it to me.  But certainly, what they are doing with the Large Hadron Collider concerns me greatly.  This is something that I covered in a previous article entitled “Will The Large Hadron Collider Open Up A Portal To Another Dimension?

In addition, I am also aware that there is a tremendous amount of speculation about an asteroid or a meteor that may or may not be heading toward our planet next month.  At this time, I have no way of proving this is true, and I have no way of disproving it is true either.  I have not come across anything that I can independently verify that indicates that this will or will not happen.  In law school I was trained to stick to the facts, and I don’t have any facts.  If you do have some solid and verifiable information, please share it with me.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge that there is plenty of speculation about certain natural disasters that may happen in September.  They may indeed happen, but I cannot prove anything of that nature right now so I have left those natural disasters off the list.

Needless to say, next month promises to be absolutely crazy, and our time for preparing is running out.

Disaster can strike very suddenly, and when it does, average citizens can be caught totally unprepared.  This is a point that Carl Gallups, the author of a new book entitled “Be Thou Prepared: Equipping the Church for Persecution and Times of Trouble“, recently made during an interview with WND

Gallups identifies specific incidents when civil society collapsed, most notably in New Orleans immediately following Hurricane Katrina.

You ended up with the worst of both worlds,” Gallups observed. “You had widespread criminality, anarchy and disorder, and somehow, at the same time, you had government officials going around enforcing wildly tyrannical guidelines and even confiscating firearms.”

As a result, Americans may be forced to rely on themselves for protection, meaning Christians have to begin planning now.

Even if it doesn’t happen next month, life in America is about to change dramatically.

The infrastructure and government services that we have all come to take for granted may not be there in the future.

It is imperative that we all start to learn how to become more independent of the system, because the system is going to start failing in thousands of different ways.
