Can Activism Be Regulated?

Can Activism Be Regulated?




Well, guys, the time is now, cos they’re grabbing us by the short and curlies, and trying to take down us activists; they’re coming at us from all sides now. This is the Quickening. From threats to regulate the press, to Internet censorship, the powers-that-be are finding many ways to control dissent. The Internet is being militarized, laws are being worked over, and political activists are the next target.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_censorship_in_the_United_Kingdom?uselang=ja



One of the biggest activist groups here in the UK, the UK Column, has been targeted by an organisation called ATVOD, an offshoot of Ofcom. ATVOD (Authority for Television on Demand) has singled out the UK Column, and insisted they must submit to being regulated, simply for being ‘television like’. ATVOD’s current directory of regulated groups is mainly made up of porn sites, and big players in the video-on-demand sector, such as CBS, 4OD, and the BBC.http://www.atvod.co.uk/


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0zP0ATo15w

After being threatened with a fine of £250,000 for non-compliance, the UK Column decided to take a stance against ATVOD by removing all of its videos from YouTube. Now we get to watch Mike and Brian sitting in a car, or at their kitchen table, doing all they can to not be at all ‘television like’.




Yeah, ‘television like’. There are thousands (millions?) of videos on YouTube which could be classed as being ‘television like’.

There’s the rub: almost every conceivable format has been shown on TV. So how can any production not be deemed to be ‘television like’? The UK Column were forced to chat to each other in a car, to not look at the camera too much, to not use techniques used by TV producers. If only ATVOD could clearly define what ‘TV like’ actually means … You see, they have described it as a “dynamic” and evolving concept, so it seems this is a concept which can only be understood by ATVOD, or a team of lawyers. The definition of ‘TV like’ evolves along with what TV is actually like, but these days, much of the (linear) programming is ‘reality TV’, just like most of YouTube. Perhaps there is no format which could not be classed as ‘like TV’ unless it is very short, or poorly produced!

http://www.atvod.co.uk/uploads/files/Ofcom_Decision_-_SUN_VIDEO.pdf

Ofcom spawned ATVOD to “create a level playing field” between video-on-demand services which compete with linear TV services, and to regulate content, but the UK Column are not competing with linear TV in any way, and the last thing any activist wants is for their editorial to be monitored and regulated by a government quango. http://www.taylorwessing.com/download/article_vod.html#.U6-fzvldW8A

This is a huge red alert! The Internet is supposed to allow free speech, and it is where activism has flourished. Now, however, any opposition to the prevailing paradigm is being classed as ‘extremism’, or ‘radicalism’; even old-age pensioners have been roughly man-handled and arrested under terrorism laws, simply for protesting against cuts to their rail fares.

Have you ever wondered why we’re allowed to say what we want on the Internet? It’s quite simply because it takes time to take control, erecting fences, passing laws. The Internet has been the equivalent of the Wild, Wild West, but bit by bit, we’re being reined in.

Maybe I, and thousands (millions?) of others, won’t even be able to write articles like this for much longer. Both the UK and the US are busy cracking down on whistleblowers, and journalism. The Leveson Inquiry into the ‘phone hacking scandal’ is being steered into regulation of the press. Likewise with the Media Shield law proposed by Feinstein in the US, and attempts to define ‘real journalists’ as only those in the paid employ of a regulated press.https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130807/13153224102/sen-feinstein-during-shield-law-debate-real-journalists-draw-salaries.shtml

The future for ‘the news’, it seems, will be vetted and embedded journalists, combined with automated AI-produced news stories,  and an even more tightly controlled mainstream media. So far, we activists have had the ‘luxury’ of being able to read and speak relatively freely. But now, the stranglehold is getting serious, and it’s time to take action; instead of just reading and speaking, we need to step away from the Internet and come together.http://www.activistpost.com/search?q=ai+news+and+the+ai+economy

Start work on a placard or two, ready to walk the streets with those who also got off their seats.
But wait – could it be that all protestors are classed as domestic extremists? Jenny Jones, who is a Peer (House of Lords), and a member of the Green Party, has been put on the domestic extremist list, and surveilled. All she did was stick up for a pensioner who didn’t want to be on the list just for being a protestor! The Domestic Extremism Unit here in the UK has compiled a huge watchlist, but what constitutes a domestic extremist? http://london.greenparty.org.uk/news/2014/06/16/green-assembly-member-speaks-out-against-met-spying-ahead-of-supreme-court-case/

Domestic Extremism relates to the activity of groups or individuals who commit or plan serious criminal activity motivated by a political or ideological viewpoint

(Viewpoints which include opposition to fracking, capitalism, and austerity! - Source )
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/jan/21/fracking-activism-protest-terrorist-oil-corporate-spies

NetPol, the Network for Police Monitoring, has identified the problem with this definition of domestic extremism; it comes down to the way ‘serious crime’ is defined:
The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA), which regulates the powers of public bodies to carry out surveillance, says that one of the tests of a ‘serious crime’ is whether someone with no previous convictions could reasonably be expected to be sentenced to imprisonment for a term of three years or more.”

However section 81(2b) of RIPA also includes this alternate test: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2000/23/section/81

That the conduct involves the use of violence, results in substantial financial gain or is conduct by a large number of persons in pursuit of a common purpose. (Source)http://netpol.org/2014/04/22/new-definition-of-domestic-extremism/

It’s that last bit that gives serious cause for concern, does it not? And a wry nod to the twist on the term ‘common purpose’….

Can you believe it has come to this?

The voice of the resistance cannot be quelled, for dissent cannot be regulated.


It’s high time we all became active activists, by getting away from the Internet! NetPol are “encouraging activists to submit subject access requests” to find out who is on the secret police databases, and Brian and Mike suggest phoning ATVOD to seek clarification on the definition of ‘television like’, and to raise awareness of the issue generally.http://netpol.org/2014/03/11/legal-challenge-scrap-ndeu/

Internet activism is not enough.

Spread the word and do something!

Pre-Crime Police Target Mental Health


Arizona is the latest to begin using pre-crime models to supposedly thwart attacks by those who are "near the breaking point." The video below highlights how mental health police units look to harvest everything from medical records to gun purchases to online posts. Citing the crimes of Jared Loughner and Elliot Rodger, these units are being given the green light with new legislation to involuntarily detain those who are flagged.

It's becoming a trend that is taking various forms. In Chicago, a "Heat List" has gone into effect that has indexed approximately 400 people who have been identified by a computer algorithm as being future threats to commit violent crime. Without having actually committed a crime, some of those on the list are beginning to get visits from Chicago police warning them that they are already being watched.

The Reason NASA Never Returned To The Moon (Full Documentary)

                              The Reason NASA Never Returned To The Moon (Full Documentary)


Neil Armstrong refused to swear on The Bible that he walked on the Moon. http://youtu.be/mNz3xn449RA

Have you ever wondered why we haven't returned to the moon again? The truth is that NASA is hiding a very dark secret from us.

Is there an "Alien Base" on the Moon? More and more people are coming forward with stories that might prove this is true. Rumors say that there is an Alien Moon Base on the far side of the moon, the side we never see from Earth.

Did you ever wonder why the Moon landings stopped and why we have not tried to build a Moon Base? It does seem like a better and easier idea than a floating space station with no access to any raw materials or supplies? According to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong the aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon!

Sound far fetched? Milton Cooper, a Naval Intelligence Officer tells us that not only does the Alien Moon Base exist but the U.S. Naval Intelligence Community refers to the Alien Moon Base as "Luna," that there is a huge mining operation going on there, and that is where the aliens keep their huge mother ships while the trips to Earth are made in smaller "flying saucers".

LUNA: The Alien base on the far side of the Moon. It was seen and filmed by the Apollo astronauts. A base, a mining operation using very large machines, and the very large alien craft described in sighting reports as mother ships exist there. -Milton Cooper

Water Justice:It’s time for the thirsting masses to toss leftwing activism from the world water supply

Strong is not alone in the exploitation of the precious liquid by which the entire human species survives, he’s only the de facto leader of the UN activists falsely claiming to uphold ‘Water Justice’.


It’s time for the thirsting masses to toss leftwing activism from the world water supply


By Judi McLeod



Has anyone noticed how it is the same “outraged” activists working on Water Justice” who are taking the threatened water cutoff service for Detroit customers 60 days overdue in payment or more than $150 behind in their water bill payments to the Detroit Water and Sewage Department (DWSD) to the ubiquitous United Nations, are the same UN activists who have been in charge of water ‘equality’ for years?



In 2008, the UN’s “senior advisor on water”  was a Canadian hardline leftist activist by the name of Maude Barlow, the one and the same co-founder of the Blue Planet project, now—at least ostensibly—fighting DWSD on the water cutoff threats to residents of Detroit.

Activists with Barlow’s Blue Planet project own the claim of “working internationally for the human right to water”.

Detroit residents don’t need airy-fairy claims or political rhetoric—they need the assurance of having access to life-saving water.http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/64024

Activist Barlow also chairs the board of the Washington-based Food & Water Watch;  is a founding member of the San Francisco-based International Forum on Globalization, and a councillor with the Hamburg-based World Future Council—all organizations in the same spirit of the UN which talks about water without getting it to the masses.

Big question: if Barlow and company are working internationally for “the human right to water”, how is it that people in Detroit, part of the human race, will be cut off from life-sustaining water by summer’s end?



From the get-go as the UN’s “senior advisor on water”, Barlow has maintained that “everybody has a right to water”, but talk, talk, talk does zero to slake human thirst.

Talk is cheap when millions of children in third world countries still have no access to clean water, and thousands of Detroit city residents impoverished by Barlow’s Democrat friends in office will be cut off from access to H20—all because they can’t afford to pay for rising DWSD water bills.

The Department has shut off water service to more than 7,500 properties in the past two months alone.

Where was Ms. Maude during the time period when Detroit has seen a steady rise in its water bills, including a staggering 119 percent increase over the last decade?

Ten years is a long time to do nothing significant in keeping Detroit’s water taps running.

“Detroit has seen a steady rise in its water bills, including a staggering 119 percent increase over the last decade. The average water bill is now an outrageous $75 a month, compared to national average of $40. For perspective sake, the average cell phone bill is $71 per month. (Arnold Ahlert, Canada Free Press June 24, 2014)

“The activists are apoplectic, claiming those affected were given no time to prepare for a shut off and that some accounts were suspended prior to the deadline. “Sick people are left without running water and running toilets,” writes Blue Planet Project Founder and Food & Water Watch Board Chair Maude Barlow.

“People recovering from surgery cannot wash and change bandages. Children cannot bathe and parents cannot cook. Is this a small number of victims? No. The water department has decreed that it will turn the water off to all 120,000 residences that owe it money by the end of the summer although it has made no such threat to the many corporations and institutions that are in arrears on their bills as well. How did it come to this?”

“Unsurprisingly, Barlow blames “decades of market driven neoliberal policy that put business and profit ahead of public good.” A less delusional examination reveals the usual suspects: free-spending, progressive Democrats, allied with labor unions,” writes Ahlert.

Problem is Barlow is part and parcel of the “neoliberal policy that put business and profit ahead of public good” and has been ever since getting the blessing of UN Poster Boy, Canadian Maurice Strong.

UN special advisor, Strong, is on the public record predicting that water will have to be rationed by armed guards as soon as 2031. (Canada Free Press, May 26, 2003)http://www.canadafreepress.com/2003/main052603.htm

“Isn't it odd that the same sources voicing alarm about the imminent scarcity of H20 just happen to be the same ones who own it?

“Strong claims that he didn't know there was a massive aquifer under the 100,000-acre Baca ranch he and his wife Hannah once owned. The ranch, sold by Strong to flamboyant businessman Gary Boyce, and now owned by the Nature Conservancy, includes 14,154-foot Kit Carson Peak in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and extends a dozen miles south to Great Sand Dunes National Monument. The Baca is part of the upper San Luis Valley, which in turn sits above an immense amount of sediment extending two to six miles deep and holding—at least—2 billion acre-feet of water. That’s 50 times the combined capacity of Lake Powell and Lake Mead, according to High Country News writer Ed Quillen.”

Strong is not alone in the exploitation of the precious liquid by which the entire human species survives, he’s only the de facto leader of the UN activists falsely claiming to uphold ‘Water Justice’.

It’s time for the increasingly thirsting masses to toss out leftwing activism from the water supply.

Talk is cheap when millions of children in third world countries still have no access to clean water, and thousands of Detroit city residents impoverished by Barlow’s Democrat friends in office will be cut off from access to H20—all because they can’t afford to pay for rising DWSD water bills.

The Department has shut off water service to more than 7,500 properties in the past two months alone.

Where was Ms. Maude during the time period when Detroit has seen a steady rise in its water bills, including a staggering 119 percent increase over the last decade?

Ten years is a long time to do nothing significant in keeping Detroit’s water taps running.

“Detroit has seen a steady rise in its water bills, including a staggering 119 percent increase over the last decade. The average water bill is now an outrageous $75 a month, compared to national average of $40. For perspective sake, the average cell phone bill is $71 per month. (Arnold Ahlert, Canada Free Press June 24, 2014)

“The activists are apoplectic, claiming those affected were given no time to prepare for a shut off and that some accounts were suspended prior to the deadline. “Sick people are left without running water and running toilets,” writes Blue Planet Project Founder and Food & Water Watch Board Chair Maude Barlow.

“People recovering from surgery cannot wash and change bandages. Children cannot bathe and parents cannot cook. Is this a small number of victims? No. The water department has decreed that it will turn the water off to all 120,000 residences that owe it money by the end of the summer although it has made no such threat to the many corporations and institutions that are in arrears on their bills as well. How did it come to this?”

“Unsurprisingly, Barlow blames “decades of market driven neoliberal policy that put business and profit ahead of public good.” A less delusional examination reveals the usual suspects: free-spending, progressive Democrats, allied with labor unions,” writes Ahlert.

Problem is Barlow is part and parcel of the “neoliberal policy that put business and profit ahead of public good” and has been ever since getting the blessing of UN Poster Boy, Canadian Maurice Strong.

UN special advisor, Strong, is on the public record predicting that water will have to be rationed by armed guards as soon as 2031. (Canada Free Press, May 26, 2003)http://www.canadafreepress.com/2003/main052603.htm

“Isn't it odd that the same sources voicing alarm about the imminent scarcity of H20 just happen to be the same ones who own it?

“Strong claims that he didn't know there was a massive aquifer under the 100,000-acre Baca ranch he and his wife Hannah once owned. The ranch, sold by Strong to flamboyant businessman Gary Boyce, and now owned by the Nature Conservancy, includes 14,154-foot Kit Carson Peak in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and extends a dozen miles south to Great Sand Dunes National Monument. The Baca is part of the upper San Luis Valley, which in turn sits above an immense amount of sediment extending two to six miles deep and holding—at least—2 billion acre-feet of water. That’s 50 times the combined capacity of Lake Powell and Lake Mead, according to High Country News writer Ed Quillen.”

Strong is not alone in the exploitation of the precious liquid by which the entire human species survives, he’s only the de facto leader of the UN activists falsely claiming to uphold ‘Water Justice’.

It’s time for the increasingly thirsting masses to toss out leftwing activism from the water supply.

A Step Closer to Bio-Printing Transplantable Organs: Study

A Step Closer to Bio-Printing Transplantable Organs: Study

Researchers have made a giant leap towards the goal of 'bio-printing' transplantable tissues and organs for people affected by major diseases and trauma injuries, a new study reports.


Image Source: http://www.explainingthefuture.com/bioprinting.html
Scientists from the Universities of Sydney, Harvard, Stanford and MIT have bio-printed artificial vascular networks mimicking the body's circulatory system that are necessary for growing large complex tissues.

"Thousands of people die each year due to a lack of organs for transplantation," says study lead author and University of Sydney researcher, Dr Luiz Bertassoni.

"Many more are subjected to the surgical removal of tissues and organs due to cancer, or they're involved in accidents with large fractures and injuries.

"Imagine being able to walk into a hospital and have a full organ printed – or bio-printed, as we call it – with all the cells, proteins and blood vessels in the right place, simply by pushing the 'print' button in your computer screen.




"We are still far away from that, but our research is addressing exactly that. Our finding is an important new step towards achieving these goals.

"At the moment, we are pretty much printing 'prototypes' that, as we improve, will eventually be used to change the way we treat patients worldwide."

The research challenge networking cells with a blood supply.

Cells need ready access to nutrients, oxygen and an effective 'waste disposal' system to sustain life. This is why 'vascularisation' – a functional transportation system – is central to the engineering of biological tissues and organs.

"One of the greatest challenges to the engineering of large tissues and organs is growing a network of blood vessels and capillaries," says Dr Bertassoni.

"Cells die without an adequate blood supply because blood supplies oxygen that's necessary for cells to grow and perform a range of functions in the body."

"To illustrate the scale and complexity of the bio-engineering challenge we face, consider that every cell in the body is just a hair's width from a supply of oxygenated blood.

"Replicating the complexity of these networks has been a stumbling block preventing tissue engineering from becoming a real world clinical application."

But this is what researchers have now achieved.

What the researchers achieved

Using a high-tech 'bio-printer', the researchers fabricated a multitude of interconnected tiny fibres to serve as the mold for the artificial blood vessels.

They then covered the 3D printed structure with a cell-rich protein-based material, which was solidified by applying light to it.

Lastly they removed the bio-printed fibres to leave behind a network of tiny channels coated with human endothelial cells, which self organised to form stable blood capillaries in less than a week (see diagram below).

The study reveals that the bioprinted vascular networks promoted significantly better cell survival, differentiation and proliferation compared to cells that received no nutrient supply.

Significance of the breakthrough

According to Dr Bertassoni, a major benefit of the new bio-printing technique is the ability to fabricate large three-dimensional micro-vascular channels capable of supporting life on the fly, with enough precision to match individual patients' needs.

"While recreating little parts of tissues in the lab is something that we have already been able to do, the possibility of printing three-dimensional tissues with functional blood capillaries in the blink of an eye is a game changer," he says.

"Of course, simplified regenerative materials have long been available, but true regeneration of complex and functional organs is what doctors really want and patients really need, and this is the objective of our work.

President’s continued attack on the economy

President’s continued attack on the economy—which includes a massive increase in illegal immigration—the nation’s economy will remain tenuous

What Economic Recovery?




You have to know that the Obama administration has run out of excuses for destroying the U.S. economy when it starts to blame it on the weather.



According to the Commerce Department, the economy based on its Gross domestic product—the value of its goods and services—fell at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 2.9% in the first quarter of this year. That was the largest recorded drop since the end of World War II in 1945!

The June 20 edition of The Wall Street Journal’s article, “Economy Shrank Rapidly in First Quarter” led off by reporting that “Weather disruptions at home and weak demand abroad caused a contraction in the U.S. economy in the first quarter, renewing doubts about the strength of the nation’s five-year-old recovery.”
http://online.wsj.com/articles/u-s-gdp-contracted-at-2-9-pace-in-first-quarter-1403699600?mod=trending_now_4&articleIndex=3

What recovery? When the economy stays in the basement for five years you are looking at an on-going stagnation based on too much government interference with growth, the decline of the nation’s middle class, the lack of new start-up businesses, and the reluctance or inability of consumers to spend money, if they have any to spend.

In May, writing on his blog, Economic Collapse, Michael Synder pointed to “27 Hugh Red Flags for the U.S. Economy” noting, for example, that according to government numbers, “everyone is unemployed in 20 percent of all American families.” The other indicators include:http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/27-huge-red-flags-for-the-u-s-economy



Sales for construction equipment were down 13% in April and have been down for 17 months in a row.
During the first quarter of 2014, profits at the office supplies giant, Staples, fell by 43.5%
Foot traffic at Wal-Mart stores fell by 1.4% during the first quarter of 2014.
It is being projected that Sears will soon close hundreds more stores and may go out of business altogether.
Existing home sales have fallen for seven of the last eight months and seem to repeating a pattern witnessed back in 2007 prior to the last financial crash.
The home ownership rate in the U.S. has dropped to the lowest level in 19 years.
You do not have to be an economist to understand that President Obama’s economic policies are flat-out failures that include a “stimulus” that wasted billions of taxpayer dollars without stimulating the economy, nor that having a $17 trillion debt means anything other than a nation teetering on a massive economic collapse.

In May, CNSnews reported that “A record 92,594,000 Americans were not in the labor force in April as the labor force participation rate matched a 36-year low of 62.8 percent, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/92594000-americans-not-labor-force-hits-all-time-record-participation

This is not my definition of a “recession” although we are told that it ended in 2009. This is a “depression” for millions of Americans. The labor force participation rate has gone from 63.5% to 63.3%, the lowest since 1979, but the Obama administration keeps telling us that it is “improving.”

Consumer spending is down. Exports are down. Employment is barely increasing. The only thing that is up is inflation.

Edward C. Prescott, a 2004 Nobel Laureate in Economics and Lee E. Ohanian, a professor of economics UCLA, writing in the June 26 edition of The Wall Street Journal, noted that the declining GDP rate was “the worst productivity statistic since 1990. And productivity since 2005 has declined by more than 8% relative to its long-run trend. This means that business output is nearly $1 trillion less today than what it would be had productivity continued to grow at its average rate of about 2.5% per year.”

“Lagging productivity growth is an enormous problem because virtually all of the increase in Americans’ standard of living is made possible by rising worker productivity.”

The Obama administration would have you believe that the economic decline in the first quarter was due to a harsh winter. They will be blaming it on a hot summer come autumn.

This is an administration whose main theme these days is the threat of “climate change”, but it has nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with vast government spending and borrowing, an explosion of regulations that have slowed or stopped the creation of new businesses, a “war on coal” that is forcing a decline in the production of electricity, and a widespread perception that the President is the worst to have held office since the nation began.

There is no recovery. There is a return to the factors that led to the 2008 financial crisis. Government entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that bought up all the sub-prime mortgage loans and packaged them as assets are still in business. Credit card companies are reaching out to sub-prime users, signing them up. Nobody seems to learn anything from the past, even if it is the recent past.

If the control of the U.S. Senate cannot be wrested away from a Democratic Party led by Harry Reid and a GOP increase in the U.S. House that was led by Nancy Pelosi until the 2010 elections cannot be achieved in the forthcoming November elections, the President’s continued attack on the economy—which includes a massive increase in illegal immigration—the nation’s economy will remain tenuous.

The Solution to Everything: Slavery to the State

The Solution to Everything: Slavery to the State


Let me clarify that. Slavery to the corporate State. Government and mega-corporations work hand in hand.

The incurably naïve believe the State is beneficent. The government is kind. The government knows what to do. The government will solve society’s ills if we let it.

Of course, the government, in the form of NSA, is spying on everybody all the time—but you see, that’s not really the government. It’s a rogue element.

Sure it is. And rainbows will appear at any moment and the people of Earth will experience a galactic frequency that eradicates all impulses toward conflict.

To put it another way, people see what they want to see.

“Ahem, when I say ‘government,’ I don’t mean the CIA or the Pentagon or the FDA or the President’s national security team, or fraudulent federal scientists, or the whole lot of venal people in Congress, or corrupt prosecutors and judges or invasive bureaucrats or paper-pushing money-sucking desk jockeys.”

Of course not. Government is an idea in the mind of God.

And when you think about it, the NSA watches over us to make sure we stay on the path of righteousness. It’s absurd to be suspicious of the State. The authors of the Constitution, who tried to limit central authority, were a bunch of paranoids.

We need more government, not less.


Here are quotes from George Orwell. In case there is any doubt, he is describing aspects of the State:

“As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are ‘only doing their duty’, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life.” (The Lion and the Unicorn, 1941.)

“Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them, and there is almost no kind of outrage — torture, the use of hostages, forced labour, mass deportations, imprisonment without trial, forgery, assassination, the bombing of civilians — which does not change its moral colour when it is committed by ‘our’ side.” (Notes on Nationalism, 1945.)

“A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible. But since, in practice, no one is infallible, it is frequently necessary to rearrange past events in order to show that this or that mistake was not made, or that this or that imaginary triumph actually happened. Then, again, every major change in policy demands a corresponding change of doctrine and a revaluation of prominent historical figures.” (The Prevention of Literature, 1946)

“But actually, he thought as he re-adjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connexion with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connexion that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version.” (1984, chapter 4.)

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.” (1984, chapter 5.)

But you see, these are all old Orwell remarks. Now we have a different kind of State. It’s…government. Yes. The State isn’t government. Aha. The State exists in places other than America. In America, we have government. Yes, that’s right. Two different animals. One is repressive, and the other is earnest. (More rainbows for the sentimentalists.)

Here are quotes about the State from Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel, Brave New World:

“Till at last the child’s mind is these suggestions, and the sum of the suggestions is the child’s mind. And not the child’s mind only. The adult’s mind too—all his life long. The mind that judges and desires and decides—made up of these suggestions. But all these suggestions are our suggestions!” (Chapter 2.)

“Every one belongs to every one else.” (Chapter 3.)

“Mother, monogamy, romance. High spurts the fountain; fierce and foamy the wild jet. The urge has but a single outlet. My love, my baby. No wonder these poor pre-moderns were mad and wicked and miserable.” (Chapter 3.)

“Everyone works for every one else.” (Chapter 5.)

“Don’t you wish you were free, Lenina?”
“I don’t know what you mean. I am free. Free to have the most wonderful time. Everybody’s happy nowadays.”
He laughed, “Yes, ‘Everybody’s happy nowadays.’ We begin giving the children that at five. But wouldn’t you like to be free to be happy in some other way, Lenina? In your own way, for example; not in everybody else’s way.”
“I don’t know what you mean,” she repeated. (Chapter 6.)

But again, Huxley’s remarks are about the aspirations and victories of the State, which doesn’t exist in America. Never has.

In America, we have a fluid and flexible government, which tries to respond to the people’s needs. Of course. Just ask Elizabeth Warren or Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W Bush, or the ghost of Richard Nixon. Ask the heads of Goldman Sachs, Monsanto, Dow, DuPont. Google, Facebook, Microsoft.

There are “repressive States” in Europe, Asia, and Africa, but that is a foreign phenomenon.

Rebelling against the State? Not here. Here we merge with the government and help it and encourage it. Besides, we’ve recently learned—and this is a revelation—that rebelling is very likely a terrorist act. Well, that settles that.

We’re all in this together. Even if the “we” and the “this” and the “together” seem to require some further clarification, rest assured it will be forthcoming. At the right time.

The government understands time (and also space). It arranges them. Someone has to.

The government is not the State, the government is not the State. The Solution to Everything: Slavery to the State


Let me clarify that. Slavery to the corporate State. Government and mega-corporations work hand in hand.

Just ask Elizabeth Warren or Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W Bush, or the ghost of Richard Nixon. Ask the heads of Goldman Sachs, Monsanto, Dow, DuPont. Google, Facebook, Microsoft.

There are “repressive States” in Europe, Asia, and Africa, but that is a foreign phenomenon.

Rebelling against the State? Not here. Here we merge with the government and help it and encourage it. Besides, we’ve recently learned—and this is a revelation—that rebelling is very likely a terrorist act. Well, that settles that.

We’re all in this together. Even if the “we” and the “this” and the “together” seem to require some further clarification, rest assured it will be forthcoming. At the right time.

The government understands time (and also space). It arranges them. Someone has to.

The government is not the State, the government is not the State.

Hillary: Congenital Liar, or Innocent Victim of Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?

When it comes to the raw truth, Hillary Clinton appears to be uniquely unqualified to critique anyone's "reliability as a source of information!"

Hillary: Congenital Liar, or Innocent Victim of Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?




From the archives of days long since ended when free speech was still practiced openly, the late columnist William Safire started a political fire storm by accusing Hillary Clinton, at the time functioning as the self-anointed co-president of the United States, of being a “congenital liar.”



As expected, Safire’s column did not set particularly well with then-President Bill Clinton, whom threatened to punch Safire on the nose, were if not for the fact that he (Bill Clinton, AKA Slick Willie) was the elected half of the manacled duo.

Other Clintonistas rushed to Hillary’s defense by objecting to the word “congenital,” which means inherited or a medical condition existing at birth. Egged on by Hillary herself, defenders pointed out that Hillary’s estrangement from truth did not commence until after she was introduced to, and paired with, Slick Willie.

Slick Willie called that a “damnable lie” and threatened to punch Hillary on the nose, were it not for the fact that it was Easter Sunday and he had an urgent appointment in the Oral Office with a chubby intern named Monica Lewinsky.

This rancid page from American history springs up because Hillary Clinton is now seen as a formidable candidate for the US presidency in 2016.



With Hillary’s sights set so high, it is crucial that she be fully vetted, a function normally carried out by the mainstream media, except when the candidate is a radical leftist Democrat and personal favorite of biased reporters and editors.

As was the case of Barack Obama and just about everyone running with a D affixed to his or her name.

But more about Hillary.

When it comes to veracity, or lack thereof, we must not forget that, in the brutal street war waged for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2008, Hillary once boasted that she was made battle tough and ready for any 3 am call on the Red Phone—- as a result of ducking sniper fire while on a mission in Bosnia for hubby President Clinton.

Unfortunately for the “inevitability queen,” a CBS reporter, who had accompanied Hillary on her Bosnia trip in 1996, unearthed a clip of video that totally debunked her “dodging sniper fire” campaign rhetoric.

As reported:

“As has now been conclusively established by video film and news photographs, Hillary Clinton did NOT come under sniper fire in Bosnia in March 1996 when she made a morale-boosting visit to U.S. troops enforcing the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement. But she is taking plenty of bullets for her over-dramatic accounts of the trip, and acknowledged on Monday that she had made a “misstatement.” She said it should be treated as a “minor blip.”

From that same report, this, in part:

“U.S. Air Force journalist Don Jackson was standing on the back of a flatbed pick-up truck filming the event when Clinton’s plane touched down. Here is his account:

Mrs. Clinton arrived to a flight line full of well-wishers, both military and civilian, accompanied by her staff as well as comedian Sinbad and singer Sheryl Crow who were there to entertain troops.

To set the record straight, there was no enemy fire, and no imminent danger. If there had been any danger, “well-wishers” would not have been allowed on the tarmac, much less allowing me to stand above everyone else on the back of a truck.

And Sinbad and Sheryl Crow would’ve been running for their lives instead of taking the time to be interviewed by yours truly, on the tarmac. Mrs. Clinton’s [claim] is a lie, plain and simple.”

Bottom line: When it comes to the raw truth, Hillary Clinton appears to be uniquely unqualified to critique anyone’s “reliability as a source of information!”

In other words, as William Safire stated so succinctly and flawlessly, Hillary is a “Congenital Liar”.

It is no secret that I spent twenty years in the U.S. Army. However the World has changed, and unfortunately, not for the better. At the time I enlisted, the Soviet Union was the biggest World threat, and had been so since my birth in 1950. When I manned the radars in the fire control section of the Nike-Hercules missile system (designed to protect the U.S. and our overseas allies from a Soviet bomber attack), I felt proud to be a part of using these nuclear devices to protect my country. It was a different era and I had a different mindset.

Today I am looking at the World that my service, along with millions of other people helped to create. The least I can say is that I am aghast at what we have helped to create and I apologize for my part in what we have succeeded in achieving; a near fascist nation with the military power to subjugate every nation on the planet. This is what we have achieved, and the American people need to understand the implications of this. The fact is that the people in power in this country are trying to use this military power, along with our economic power to create World hegemony, another way to say that they want to conquer the World.

This is what we accused the Soviet Union of trying to do during the Cold War. This was the reason millions of Americans signed up to go to war and to work in the defense industries and allow our tax dollars to go toward bigger and better armaments to defend the "Free World" from Russian and Chinese Communism instead of rebuilding out infrastructure and trying to devise ways to develop green energy to get off the fossil fuels that are killing this planet. This was also the reason we neglected to properly fund medical research that could have culminated in destroying diseases that are still rampant around the World. The fear of Communism also took funds away from the American people that had contributed their tax dollars and now find themselves worse off than their parents and under trillions of dollars in national debt in order to fund a military that uses an amazing 54% of our discretionary national budget.

We have seen our political system being used to a degree never seen in our history by the wealthiest amongst us in order to receive favors from Congress and the Executive branch. We have allowed these bought politicians to allow for foreign manufacturing of "American" products to allow our industrialists to reap bigger profits for themselves and their shareholders through "Free Trade" agreements that sold off American manufacturing to other nations. We hear talk of a "World Economy" that is in essence a way to skim the profits from manufacturing the products in the World to the people that own the companies that produce these products and those that fund their International manufacturing adventures (Wall Street).

We are told that America is the richest nation on Earth. I have no doubt that this is true, but I can see that this nations riches are not being dispersed to the American people that fought the wars and paid their taxes to create the monster of a global economy. Instead, the money is being held by the richest families that run and control these huge American assets and to those shareholders wealthy enough to buy stock in these companies that manufacture globally instead of giving manufacturing jobs to the American people that allowed them to do this through a system of half-truths and lies foisted upon them by every party in power after the Kennedy era.

We have seen the creation of institutions such as The World Bank and The International Monetary Fund that are run by the same bankers that have run the Western System of banking for well over a hundred years. The same six families that have control over much of this banking system have used their interests to create World Wars and supported both sides of these wars at times to create huge fortunes that added to their coffers. Now they are humankinds greatest predators. They set the stage for nations to wage economic wars against each other and when some nations economies falter, they rush in to render huge loans to "save" these nations.

Meanwhile, as with most things that are too good to be true, they also dictate how these funds (which amount to billions of dollars) are to be used. They make sure that debtor nations only use the borrowed money to buy equipment and to use contractors from an approved list that they supply, adding to the profits of their subsidiaries. The proceeds of the money borrowed doesn't usually flow back into the economies that borrowed this money and there isn't enough economic expansion to pay back the banks that made these loans. Now the real fun begins. The desperate nations that are in debt to the World Bank and the IMF now must sell off its assets such infrastructure (transportation facilities, hospitals, airlines) to internal conglomerates. They also sell mining rights and fisheries and other national resources to international interests to pay their bills, in other words, these nations are raped by the bankers.

This brings us to this "special relationship" we have with the United Kingdom. It seems that most of these bankers come from the U.S. and the UK. After 150 years of trying to derail the United States in almost every endeavor we undertook, we now are the World's greatest allies. We forget that it was the threat of war with the UK and France from Russia that stopped those nations from recognizing the Confederate States of America that almost started a first World war. The Russians even sent two fleets to the United States and put one in San Francisco and one in New York Harbor. That part of history has been scrubbed out of history since the cold war by American revisionists.

While many allied soldiers died during World War II, it was the Russians that paid the price in blood. Over twenty million Russians died fighting and having their citizens killed by the Nazi's. It wasn't just German Nazi's that did the killing however, it was Hungarian, Romanian, Italian and yes Ukrainian Nazi's. It was no surprise to FDR when Russia demanded control of Eastern Europe. It was completely understandable to anyone that understood the horror that they had gone through. Still, the American propaganda machine after FDR's death hyped the take-over of Eastern Europe as nothing but a Communist plot, downplaying the carnage that most of these nations had brought against the Soviet Union. Still, in the Khrushchev Era (Khrushchev, by the way was Ukrainian), The Ukraine was given Russian provinces in order to temper the nation and remove the threat of unrest. One of those provinces was Crimea.

Russian troops fought Ukrainian fascists well after the official end of World War II. It was a few years before the Ukraine was at peace. Many Ukrainians fled to the US and Canada to escape the USSR and were greeted with open arms. Unfortunately, many of these emigrants escaping communism were hard core Nazi's. Huge communities in Canada and the U.S. of Ukrainians popped up, sending money back to their homeland and keeping their traditions including National Socialism. When the "Orange Revolution" happened (with CIA help) they sent money and materials. When the Orange Revolution fell apart, they waited until another period of unrest.

They got it when the EU (UK, Germany and others) made overtures to Ukraine. The Western part of the nation (including Galicia with the largest concentration of Nazi's in their population) was ecstatic. Many Western Ukrainians despised Russia. They were also tempted by the richness of the West and the promise of economic help by the IMF and the World Bank, not understanding the ramifications of taking their "help". Huge demonstrations erupted in Kiev helped in part by 5 Billion U.S. taxpayer Dollars admitted by Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Now the demonstrations got ugly. Snipers were killing not only the police, but protestors. It was recently reveled that the shots were coming from a building that the protestors occupied. It has been determined by some as an attempt by the protestors to create a revulsion towards the democratically elected government.

It apparently worked. With mounting pressure from the protestors and under EU pressure he signed a deal to transfer powers to parliament and hold early elections. But within hours the President had fled the capital and his administration had crumbled. He then went to Russia with his family and to safety. Putin admits that Viktor Yanukovych was a horrible leader and he is politically doomed, but he still contends that he was ousted in a coup. He doesn't mention that it was a Western backed coup but look at the facts. Putin has been acting as diplomatically as he can.

Most people in the World understand that Crimea is occupied by a 95% Russian population and was ceded by Khrushchev in the 1950's. The Crimean's, seeing a chance to return to Mother Russia, immediately organized a referendum to rejoin Russia. Russia never invaded the Crimea, contrary to what the State Department, President Obama and the mainstream media tell you. Russia is allowed to have 26,000 troops in Crimea and had a 50 year lease on the port of Sevastopol, the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. These Russian military took no part in the events in the Crimea, it was the military self-defense force of Crimea that detained Ukrainian solders at their bases.

The referendum passed with 97% of the vote and the Russian Duma passed a bill to incorporate them back into the Russian State and President Putin signed the bill. End of story. The U.S. government and U.S. media story that the Crimea was "invaded" by Russia is a propaganda event designed to mislead the American people and it is working... unfortunately. Many Americans still trust in the mainstream media to tell them the truth, it doesn't. The corporate media regurgitates exactly what the government wants them to say. People like Scott Pelley on CBS is nothing but a lackey that spews out American State Department information designed to deceive the American public.

This time, American propaganda has overstepped its ability to deceive many Americans. There are U.S. citizens that are rethinking what the government is telling them. I credit Edward Snowden for telling us the truth about the mass surveillance on American citizens for raising the consciousness of the American public. I also credit President Obama for informing us on how the American government stoops to lies and deception by letting him tell us outright lies and distortions about the events in the Ukraine and the Crimea. Congressman Alan Grayson just stated about the events in the Crimea;

“Why are we pretending otherwise? Why are we speaking about naked aggression, why are we speaking about stealing Crimea, why are we speaking about bullying, or the new Soviet Union, or thuggery, or audacious power-grabbing, or bully bear Putin, or Cold War two?”
Our nation wants the Ukraine to loot the natural resources of that country and to put it into NATO and use it as launching pad for missiles in order to render Russia helpless to retaliate after a U.S. first nuclear strike. This would make Russia pliant and subservient to this coalition of the U.S. and the EU.

The sad part of this story for me personally, is that I now find myself living in a country (and pardon the hackneyed phrase) that is on the wrong side of history. I admire Steven Segal (who I don't like as an actor) for going to Russia and siding with President Putin. If I had the resources I might also move to Russia. I find myself living in a country that fails to live up to our Constitution and treats its people, not as citizens, but as subjects. There is no real democracy in this nation and our political system is broken with no chance of repairing it. It is controlled by influential people with money to act in their interests.

Everything you hear in the Mainstream media is suspect. Everything that comes out of Congress is suspect. The President lies to his people. The government spies on us. This is something I didn't sign up for.

ISIS (DAASH) now recruiting in Palestinian camps in Lebanon--who are those guys?

ISIS (DAASH) now recruiting in Palestinian camps in Lebanon--who are those guys?


As Washington and London were affirming the past few days their intentions to continue to arm “moderate rebel factions” in Syria, Tel Aviv just announced it would like to be helpful by joining with “moderate Arab nations” to battle their mutual Muslim enemies.

Israel offered on 6/26/14 to help “moderate” Arab nations who may feel threatened by the lightning land grabbing offensive by Islamic militants in Iraq. As its foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, an arch Zionist Islamophobe and Arabphobe, met with Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris, he reportedly talked sweet about some Arabs and told Kerry that "the extremists currently operating in Iraq and Syria will try to challenge the stability in the entire Gulf region, first of all in Kuwait." A statement from his office added that “Israel could provide effective and reliable assistance to moderate Arab states who are dealing with extremists.”

Just a few days after visiting Iraq, and being briefed on the pathetic situation, Kerry seems intrigued by the Zionist idea and noted according to a senior U.S. official, that it is "important that countries in the region (including Israel) stand together against the (ISIS) threat."

Basically “Israel wants to do what Shite Iran has started doing” he continued, which according to the New York Times is flying surveillance drones over Iraq and sending military equipment to help Baghdad fight the Sunni insurgents. Except Israel wants to arm the Sunni tribes in league with the West and the Gulf monarchies and not arm the Shia.

Israeli officials and AIPAC are arguing to Washington that Israeli interests were converging with moderate Arab nations and “both sides should be dealing with the threat of Iran, world jihad and al-Qaida, as well as the spill-over of conflicts in Syria and in Iraq to neighboring countries." The Israeli embassy issued a statement, "Today, (6/26/14) there is a basis for the creation of a new diplomatic-political structure in the Middle East." Yet another ‘New Middle East’, one wonders?

This week, (6/22/14) on NBC’s Meet the Press, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu restated the half-century old Zionist project and continuing to permanently divide and control the Middle East. On the subject of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (DAASH) Netanyahu expressed the intention of his regime to continue to promote internal strife in Israel’s neighboring states. “We must weaken both [Sunni and Shia Muslims],” Netanyahu said, restating his governments preferred policy to have Muslims continue fighting among themselves. “When your enemies are fighting each other, don’t strengthen either one of them, weaken both,” he told the American public.

While it would not be the first time the Zionist regime has worked with preferred members of the Arab League to advance its own interests, another strong incentive to ratchet up its “split the Arabs” policy is the popular spill-over political effects of the advancements of DAASH in Iraq and Syria. Briefly stated, Lebanon is awash with rumors about a “Sunni uprising” to regain what is viewed by some in Lebanon and the region as seeking justice for their substantial political and economic loses since the 2003 Bush-Blair invasion of Iraq.

If the Gulf Kingdoms and the West agree to share information and leverage with respect to Iraq and Syria with Netanyahu & Co., it will be with the knowledge that Israel has another motive in wanting to join the coalescing forces against ISIS (DAASH). Presumably it is also is what its Lebanon based agents are surely reporting from the Palestinian camps.

Briefly put Palestinian camps generally, and using Ein el Helwe, in Saida, Lebanon as an example, are beginning to experience what Nahr el Bared camp near Tripoli, Lebanon did in 2007. At Nahr al Bared, over a period of more than six months began to notice the arrival of ‘strangers.’ Some camp residents asked “Who are those guys”? At first the new arrivals appeared to be rather self-effacing, very polite, and seemingly deeply religious. They tended to keep to themselves and soon their families arrived. More than one Sheik in Nahr al Bared assured the camp residents that the strangers were “good Muslims” and some were even teaching lessons from the Koran at the Mosque.

Fast forward, and as one of the Nahr el Bared camp leader explained in great detail to this observer at the time, soon residents soon began to notice changes in what were in fact affiliates or members of a new group calling itself “Fatah el Islam (FEI).” For example, the Islamists began to accost women on the street demanding that they wear a full length Hijabs and to stop smoking and more generally change their ways to be “better Muslims”.

Today, FEI is relatively strong and growing, but secretively in Ein el Helwe. But they are not alone. New arrivals, plus young, unemployed, discouraged and increasingly disenchanted and angry youth are reportedly secretly holding meetings with DAASH, Al Nusra and other recruiters and they are promised immediate material benefits and soon to be granted the full right to work plus a deepening Resistance to the occupation of their country, Palestine. There are takers naturally, but numbers so far are difficult to learn. Militias are growing in the camps but it’s difficult to calculate just how fast because camp residents know of many outside intelligence agents living among them, ranging from Lebanese Internal Security to Zionist agents and many others, so keeping their work secret is most essential.

According to analysts in Lebanon, and a recent report in Now Lebanon, the small cells based in rural northern Lebanon, the eastern Bekaa, and the Palestinian camps, where law enforcement remains very difficult are expanding due to the ISIS’ surge in Iraq and its apparent success in securing popular support from Sunni tribes and former Baathist groups. Fears continue to spread that the Sunni-Shiite sectarian struggle will explode in Lebanon as well.

But the threat does not come only from outside Lebanon’s borders, according to a security source in Ain al-Helweh Palestinian refugee camp. The source reported that he has been receiving information recently about Jihadist factions mobilizing in several areas of Lebanon, including Palestinian refugee camps with both DAASH (ISIS) and al Nusra Front setting up training camps. According to one source, Jihadists reportedly are not only mobilizing inside the Palestinian camps: it is happening across Lebanon, especially after the Qalamoun second battle. Fanatic Muslims and takfiris are spreading very fast. “What is happening in Iraq and Qalamoun shows that the situation will soon be very dangerous in the region, including Lebanon. It will all become a jihad battlefield,” the source said.

Two active and knowledgeable Palestinians from Ein el Helwe camp explained to this observer this week as they introduced me to the leader of Fatah el Islam, “Of course all the camps are affected just like everyone else around here by what has been happening in Iraq and Syria. Palestinians always want to avoid local fights but we always seem to be pulled in. Look what happened in the Lebanese civil war. Our leadership tried everything it could do stay out of the sectarian fight but we were pulled in and paid a huge price.

As for the attitude of the general camp population in Lebanon, a recent unscientific poll found that more than 96% of camp residents in Lebanon do not want to stop the Resistance but rather to reclaim all their stolen land. This survey results compares remarkably closely to a June 15-17 poll commissioned by the Zionist Washington Institute. That poll comprised face-to-face interviews with a standard random geographic probability sample of 1,200 adult Palestinians, yielding results with a 3% statistical margin of error. Only 22% of Gazans would opt to give up the ‘by whatever means necessary’ Resistance “to end the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza to achieve a two-state solution." Even fewer, pick a "one-state solution," in which "Arabs and Jews having equal rights in one country, but want their country returned from the river to the sea." The “two-state solution” is the preferred option of a mere 9% in the West Bank and 10% in Gaza. Nearly two-thirds of the Palestinians in the same Zionist poll said "resistance should continue until all of historic Palestine is liberated."

Both the Zionist poll and the informal one done in Palestinian camps in Lebanon find board support for popular resistance against the Zionist occupation seen as having a positive impact by most respondents in Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon. These activities include stepped up demonstrations, building more support for the BDS campaign, strikes, marches, and mass refusals to cooperate, though various acts of Resistance to confront the Zionist occupiers.

Increased Resistance is seen as having a positive impact by most respondents in both territories: 62% in the West Bank, 73% in Gaza and close to 90% in Ein el Helwe.

Meanwhile, a twitter account with 21,000 followers, one of many, and this one dubbed the "League of Supporters", called this week for DAASH sympathizers to post messages warning America not to carry out airstrikes against DAASH. Rather they urged their supporters to prepare to follow them and to confront the Zionists across Palestine.

In summation, the Zionist regime is very aware that the camps are likely to explode for a number of reasons not least of which the lack of civil rights including Palestinians is being banned from most jobs and the rising anger in and among the camps. It is also the case that the Zionists realize that the future looks bleak for its continuing occupation of Palestine internationally and helping stamp our extremist Jihadists, even by working with Arab regimes, and to weaken Iran in the process, it what it must do.

As Canadian freelance writer and journalist Brandon Martinez reminds us: “Fragmenting, weakening and Balkanizing the Middle East has been part and parcel of the Zionist impulse from the very beginnings of the Jewish state. Israeli strategist Oded Yinon candidly outlined this imperialist line of thought in his 1982 paper “A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s.” A strong, unified Iraq is Israel’s primary military concern, Yinon stressed” Yinon went on to push for the territorial dissection of Iraq into three state-lets along ethnic and confessional lines. And we may well witness these developments in Iraq. He promoted much the same scenario for Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran and other Arab/Muslim states bordering the Zionist colony.

Martinez further observes, “The Zionists have used deception, subterfuge and cunning to con the world into entering conflicts and conflagrations that have expedited their ominous aims. But Israel’s insatiable avarice for more land and resources will eventually be its downfall, just as every empire in history has sooner or later collapsed under its own weight.”

Reminding this observer of a quote a valued friend from New Mexico recently sent to me:

“Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too” (Marcus Aurelius).

ISIS (DAASH) now recruiting in Palestinian camps in Lebanon--who are those guys?


As Washington and London were affirming the past few days their intentions to continue to arm “moderate rebel factions” in Syria, Tel Aviv just announced it would like to be helpful by joining with “moderate Arab nations” to battle their mutual Muslim enemies.

Israel offered on 6/26/14 to help “moderate” Arab nations who may feel threatened by the lightning land grabbing offensive by Islamic militants in Iraq. As its foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, an arch Zionist Islamophobe and Arabphobe, met with Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris, he reportedly talked sweet about some Arabs and told Kerry that "the extremists currently operating in Iraq and Syria will try to challenge the stability in the entire Gulf region, first of all in Kuwait." A statement from his office added that “Israel could provide effective and reliable assistance to moderate Arab states who are dealing with extremists.”

Just a few days after visiting Iraq, and being briefed on the pathetic situation, Kerry seems intrigued by the Zionist idea and noted according to a senior U.S. official, that it is "important that countries in the region (including Israel) stand together against the (ISIS) threat."

Basically “Israel wants to do what Shite Iran has started doing” he continued, which according to the New York Times is flying surveillance drones over Iraq and sending military equipment to help Baghdad fight the Sunni insurgents. Except Israel wants to arm the Sunni tribes in league with the West and the Gulf monarchies and not arm the Shia.

Israeli officials and AIPAC are arguing to Washington that Israeli interests were converging with moderate Arab nations and “both sides should be dealing with the threat of Iran, world jihad and al-Qaida, as well as the spill-over of conflicts in Syria and in Iraq to neighboring countries." The Israeli embassy issued a statement, "Today, (6/26/14) there is a basis for the creation of a new diplomatic-political structure in the Middle East." Yet another ‘New Middle East’, one wonders?

This week, (6/22/14) on NBC’s Meet the Press, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu restated the half-century old Zionist project and continuing to permanently divide and control the Middle East. On the subject of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (DAASH) Netanyahu expressed the intention of his regime to continue to promote internal strife in Israel’s neighboring states. “We must weaken both [Sunni and Shia Muslims],” Netanyahu said, restating his governments preferred policy to have Muslims continue fighting among themselves. “When your enemies are fighting each other, don’t strengthen either one of them, weaken both,” he told the American public.

While it would not be the first time the Zionist regime has worked with preferred members of the Arab League to advance its own interests, another strong incentive to ratchet up its “split the Arabs” policy is the popular spill-over political effects of the advancements of DAASH in Iraq and Syria. Briefly stated, Lebanon is awash with rumors about a “Sunni uprising” to regain what is viewed by some in Lebanon and the region as seeking justice for their substantial political and economic loses since the 2003 Bush-Blair invasion of Iraq.

If the Gulf Kingdoms and the West agree to share information and leverage with respect to Iraq and Syria with Netanyahu & Co., it will be with the knowledge that Israel has another motive in wanting to join the coalescing forces against ISIS (DAASH). Presumably it is also is what its Lebanon based agents are surely reporting from the Palestinian camps.

Briefly put Palestinian camps generally, and using Ein el Helwe, in Saida, Lebanon as an example, are beginning to experience what Nahr el Bared camp near Tripoli, Lebanon did in 2007. At Nahr al Bared, over a period of more than six months began to notice the arrival of ‘strangers.’ Some camp residents asked “Who are those guys”? At first the new arrivals appeared to be rather self-effacing, very polite, and seemingly deeply religious. They tended to keep to themselves and soon their families arrived. More than one Sheik in Nahr al Bared assured the camp residents that the strangers were “good Muslims” and some were even teaching lessons from the Koran at the Mosque.

Who are the 'moderate' rebels President Obama wants to train and arm?

Who are the 'moderate' rebels President Obama wants to train and arm?


Well, God bless Barack Obama – he’s found some “moderate” rebels in Syria. Enough to supply them with weapons and training worth $500m. Congress wants to arm these brave freedom fighters, you see. And Obama, having sent his 300 elite Spartan lads to Iraq to help Nouri al-Maliki fight the rebels there, needs to send help to the rebels in Syria – even though most of them are on the side of the rebels in Iraq whom Obama wants Maliki to defeat.

Confusing? You bet. So first steps first. Who are the “moderate” rebels whom Obama wants to train and arm? He doesn’t name them – and he can’t, because the original “moderates” whom America swore to arm (with the help of the CIA, the Brits, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey) were the so-called “Free Syrian Army”, mostly composed of deserters from Assad’s government forces. But the FSA – briefly beloved of John McCain until he discovered a pro-al-Qa’ida fighter sharing a photo-op with him in northern Syria – has decomposed.
Its men have gone home, switched to the bearded Islamists of the Nusrah or Isis – or Isil if we heed the latest acronym – or re-deserted to the government army and taken up arms for Assad again. Some freedom fighters! They weren’t given enough weapons, we are told. Now they’ll get more. And no doubt sell them – as they did the last lot. For it is a sad fact of war that whenever a gun crosses a border, it represents not loyalty but cash.

Give an FSA man – if you can find one – an anti-aircraft missile and it will be sold to the highest bidder. In all the civil wars I’ve covered, I’ve never seen a weapon in the hands of a militia which hasn’t bought it from someone else. In a humiliating interview on Channel 4, our own Defence Secretary admitted that weapons given to Syrian rebels had fallen into the hands of the bad guys. How do you monitor all the guys whom you give a gun to? Send them off with a personal drone to make sure they don’t sell it?

Besides, how do you actually find a “moderate” these days in Syria’s war? The Islamist rebels fight to the death. No “moderates” they. And – accursed facts now intervene – these are the very same Islamist rebels now threatening the Iraqi state. And just to make things even more confusing, Maliki has just been thanking Assad’s boys for air-raiding his own rebel enemies on the Iraqi-Syrian border on the grounds that Syria and Iraq are “friends”.

So now to our own real friend, the Department of Home Truths. What’s left of the FSA has been fighting the Islamist Isis-Isil forces. So have the Kurdish militias in northern Syria. So have a few village militias. And the Syrians have a suspicion that this is Obama’s half-baked plan: to arm the anti-Islamist Syrian rebels to fight the pro-al-Qa’ida rebels and thus – indirectly – keep both the Assad and Maliki regimes in power.

The problem is that Obama must do this without revealing that the Syrian-Iraqi battle against Sunni Wahabis is one and the same war, that Assad’s Syrian army – using Russian jets – is struggling against exactly the same enemy as Maliki’s Iraqi army, also soon to be augmented (if we are to believe Maliki’s blather to the BBC Arabic Service) with Russian jets. In other words, Assad not only has the public support of Moscow; he has the private support of Washington (and therefore, of course, of Israel).

Why else would the White House say that the money for Syrian “moderates” would help “counter terrorist threats” – “terrorist” being Assad’s description of his enemies. But of course, Obama must keep calling Assad a “brutal dictator”. Difficult to explain all this on Fox News, of course. So just keep repeating the word “moderate”. Over and over again.

The War on Humans

The War on Humans




As hard as it is to believe, there is a segment of society, especially in developed Western countries, that considers the human race to essentially be a parasite.

This 31-minute documentary covers what can fairly be characterized as the anti-human movement and the various ways it is rearing its ugly head around the world.

Some of the examples shown in this documentary are downright absurd. Plant rights? Really? I was hoping they accidentally used an article from The Onion, but no, the Swiss government actually does recognize “plant dignity.”

From the YouTube description:

Are humans the enemy? Should pigs and peas have constitutional rights? The War on Humans is a 31-minute documentary that critiques growing efforts to disparage the value of humans in the name of saving the planet. The documentary investigates the views of anti-human activists who want to grant legal rights to animals, plants, and “Mother Earth,” and who want to reduce the human population by up to 90%. The video features Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Wesley J. Smith, author of a companion e-book with the same title.

What do you think? Are humans really the enemies of the planet? Should the human population really be reduced by up to 90% in the name of environmentalism? Let us know in the comments.

So, Your Spiritual Awakening Cost You Some Friends

So, Your Spiritual Awakening Cost You Some Friends



Have you noticed a change in your relationships with other people lately? Is it sometimes difficult or awkward to talk to others about spiritual topics? Do you, at times, feel alone in your beliefs? Have you lost contact with any long time friends recently? You are not alone!

I’m fortunate to have a lot of Facebook friends who post similar types of links. Too many times, I see a lot of people who talk the talk but are afraid to walk the walk, due to being ridiculed for their thoughts and posts (GROUP-THINK). I've lost some longtime friends because of this but have made many, many new ones. Once the ego is released, you no longer worry about conformity and peer pressure.

Group-think is a psychological phenomenon that structures various belief systems within a group of people while discouraging individual creativity and independent thinking. Even within a group of individuals who are spiritually awakened, you will find groupthink.

If you look at the recorded history of mankind, you’ll find that this history is merely someone’s interpretation of a landmark event or evolutionary process, backed by eyewitness testimonial, scientific data, video or faith. The actual truth may be hidden or distorted for many reasons, but mostly for control and power. Look no further than the origins of mankind and you’ll find a plethora of creation myths from all cultures with varying dates of our existence. Who’s right?http://www.in5d.com/20-history-questions-they-refuse-to-answer-in-school.html

http://www.in5d.com/everything-weve-been-taught-about-earth-origins-is-a-lie.html

Can you talk to your friends about the universe? Do they know what a stargate or chakra is? Are they willing to talk about ascension or spiritual enlightenment?http://www.in5d.com/nassim-haramein-stargate.html

http://www.in5d.com/earth-chakras-and-vortices.html

http://www.in5d.com/how-to-ascend-ascension-101-part-1.html

http://www.in5d.com/3-stages-of-enlightenment.html

When you talk to people about the creation myth, they tend to remain inside the box with a belief system that supports religion’s story of creation, which dates mankind back to 4,000 B.C. If you raise questions about our true origins, it tends to separate people and relationships between those who think outside the box versus those who think inside the box. When these topics arise within relationships, they often create dissention. It’s hard for anyone to admit they've been deceived for so long and even more difficult to admit they were possibly wrong in their assumptions.
http://www.in5d.com/when-spiritual-awakening-begins.html

http://www.in5d.com/who-created-god-if-god-created-everything.html

This is a prime example of how our educational systems keep us locked inside the box without questioning anything about what we've been taught.

Those who remain inside the box are afraid of what others might think if they venture outside the box, so they remain complacent and subservient while conforming to what society dictates rather than relying on their own discernment and judgment. People could live their entire lives pretending to be what society expects them to be and not even know it!

From an ego perspective, our thoughts are basically cultivated by what we've learned from our family, friends, educational systems and religious beliefs, but what have we truly been taught? What can we say about anything that wasn't regurgitated to us by someone else?

As evidenced by past life regressions, our previous lives and soul history remain dormant in our cellular DNA and can be recalled through our subconscious minds through hypnotherapy. Within your cellular DNA, you actually remember being back with the Source along with all of the things you wanted to accomplish during this incarnation, as well as all of the challenges you wanted to overcome and all of the people who would lead you to where you are. This includes the people that have come and gone from our lives.
http://www.in5d.com/free-past-life-regression-self-hypnosis-mp3.html

http://www.in5d.com/dna-can-be-influenced-and-reprogrammed-by-words-and-frequencies.html

Sometimes, we project to be someone that we expect others to see in us. In psychology, this is referred to as the shadow self, where we project an identity that conforms to how other people may perceive us versus being true to who we really are. Some people may find out that they never knew who they were because they lived their lives through the expectations of how others will perceive them.

Those who have begun their spiritual journeys may also be confronting these issues, which initially creates cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance occurs when you get an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously. This is the transition period that many of us have gone through, where our beliefs have changed, yet we’re unsure about relating these new ideas to our friends and family, due to fear or rejection.http://www.in5d.com/we-are-spiritual-beings-on-a-human-journey.html

As our spiritual journeys continue, we become more comfortable within our own beliefs and less concerned about how our friends and family view this awakening. This is when the ego becomes separated from the self and fear is dissolved by love. At this juncture, we begin to talk to acquaintances, as well as friends and family, about spiritual and metaphysical topics, with less regard about what they might think of us or how we may be perceived by others.http://www.in5d.com/spiritual-awakening-quiz.html

In time, spirituality will be the predominant frame of mind and it’s likely that those who have strayed from us will be the first in line to ask for help in adjusting to the new paradigm.

Remember this: You are not alone! Those who truly love you will stand by you, no matter what. Those people who are no longer part of our lives have already played their role in helping us find out who we truly are. Sometimes, it takes polarity to be able to differentiate who we are and where we’re going. This is where the unawakened help immensely, by providing that contrast which allows us to see the differences.

Envision each awakened person across the planet holding a candle. While your individual candle may not seem like a lot of light, it greatly contributes to making the world FULL of light and keeps us connected, no matter how far apart we may be. While it may be painful to lose some dear friends, think about what they have brought to your life and why.

Chances are, you’ll end a few old relationships with people who were, at one time, very close to you, only to create new relationships with like-minded people. Forgive yourself, as well as your friends, if you feel badly about this. They came into your life for a reason a season or a lifetime:

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Gregg Prescott,

So, Your Spiritual Awakening Cost You Some Friends



Have you noticed a change in your relationships with other people lately? Is it sometimes difficult or awkward to talk to others about spiritual topics? Do you, at times, feel alone in your beliefs? Have you lost contact with any long time friends recently? You are not alone!

I’m fortunate to have a lot of Facebook friends who post similar types of links. Too many times, I see a lot of people who talk the talk but are afraid to walk the walk, due to being ridiculed for their thoughts and posts (GROUP-THINK). I've lost some longtime friends because of this but have made many, many new ones. Once the ego is released, you no longer worry about conformity and peer pressure.

Group-think is a psychological phenomenon that structures various belief systems within a group of people while discouraging individual creativity and independent thinking. Even within a group of individuals who are spiritually awakened, you will find groupthink.

If you look at the recorded history of mankind, you’ll find that this history is merely someone’s interpretation of a landmark event or evolutionary process, backed by eyewitness testimonial, scientific data, video or faith. The actual truth may be hidden or distorted for many reasons, but mostly for control and power. Look no further than the origins of mankind and you’ll find a plethora of creation myths from all cultures with varying dates of our existence. Who’s right?http://www.in5d.com/20-history-questions-they-refuse-to-answer-in-school.html

http://www.in5d.com/everything-weve-been-taught-about-earth-origins-is-a-lie.html

Can you talk to your friends about the universe? Do they know what a stargate or chakra is? Are they willing to talk about ascension or spiritual enlightenment?http://www.in5d.com/nassim-haramein-stargate.html

http://www.in5d.com/earth-chakras-and-vortices.html

http://www.in5d.com/how-to-ascend-ascension-101-part-1.html

http://www.in5d.com/3-stages-of-enlightenment.html

When you talk to people about the creation myth, they tend to remain inside the box with a belief system that supports religion’s story of creation, which dates mankind back to 4,000 B.C. If you raise questions about our true origins, it tends to separate people and relationships between those who think outside the box versus those who think inside the box. When these topics arise within relationships, they often create dissention. It’s hard for anyone to admit they've been deceived for so long and even more difficult to admit they were possibly wrong in their assumptions.
http://www.in5d.com/when-spiritual-awakening-begins.html

http://www.in5d.com/who-created-god-if-god-created-everything.html

This is a prime example of how our educational systems keep us locked inside the box without questioning anything about what we've been taught.

Those who remain inside the box are afraid of what others might think if they venture outside the box, so they remain complacent and subservient while conforming to what society dictates rather than relying on their own discernment and judgment. People could live their entire lives pretending to be what society expects them to be and not even know it!

From an ego perspective, our thoughts are basically cultivated by what we've learned from our family, friends, educational systems and religious beliefs, but what have we truly been taught? What can we say about anything that wasn't regurgitated to us by someone else?

As evidenced by past life regressions, our previous lives and soul history remain dormant in our cellular DNA and can be recalled through our subconscious minds through hypnotherapy. Within your cellular DNA, you actually remember being back with the Source along with all of the things you wanted to accomplish during this incarnation, as well as all of the challenges you wanted to overcome and all of the people who would lead you to where you are. This includes the people that have come and gone from our lives.

http://www.in5d.com/dna-can-be-influenced-and-reprogrammed-by-words-and-frequencies.html

Sometimes, we project to be someone that we expect others to see in us. In psychology, this is referred to as the shadow self, where we project an identity that conforms to how other people may perceive us versus being true to who we really are. Some people may find out that they never knew who they were because they lived their lives through the expectations of how others will perceive them.

Those who have begun their spiritual journeys may also be confronting these issues, which initially creates cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance occurs when you get an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously. This is the transition period that many of us have gone through, where our beliefs have changed, yet we’re unsure about relating these new ideas to our friends and family, due to fear or rejection.http://www.in5d.com/we-are-spiritual-beings-on-a-human-journey.html

As our spiritual journeys continue, we become more comfortable within our own beliefs and less concerned about how our friends and family view this awakening. This is when the ego becomes separated from the self and fear is dissolved by love. At this juncture, we begin to talk to acquaintances, as well as friends and family, about spiritual and metaphysical topics, with less regard about what they might think of us or how we may be perceived by others.http://www.in5d.com/spiritual-awakening-quiz.html

US Military Personnel forced to Submit to the Sharia during Ramadan


US Military Personnel forced to Submit to the Sharia during Ramadan




Editors Note:    I read the original notice I got about this and thought it was wrong.  Upon researching it I found it was correct!  I am amazed.  This is what the Obama administration and the US military are obsessed with as armies of jihad tear through the Middle East, murdering, plundering, raping and mutilating??  Our military even have to wear clothing considered decent by these medeival, barbaric muslims and greet them in a certain way?? What is even worse it the propaganda even quotes a US soldier, a Petty Officer 1st Class James Ramirez as saying, and I quote from the article here:     “It actually made me want to do a lot more research into the religion.”  Religion???  No folks, Islam is not a religion.  It is a cesspool of filthy, degrading, inhumans and is a cult where the so called God they worship is a sick paedophile (Muhommad). They are intollerant of all who are not Muslim and their aim is world domination and the implementation of Sharia Law.  God help you if you are gay!!  They have no plans to integrate into any other society than their own.  Cultural Diversity, a phraze so beloved by the left, is not eben in their vocabulary.  They even have the President of the United States, a usurper of unknown lineage,  background and history, with a Muslim name (HUSSEIN)  and an upbringing in a strong Muslim country (Indonesia), supporting any Muslim aim he can, arming them with American weapons, even those groups alligned to al Qaeda who are sworn to destroy the Big Satan (America) as well as Israel.   Obama and this sick cult even were united in the plot to murder, rape and violate the ambassador in Libya and the other three American heroes murdered with him in Benghazi. America, our military are being slowly destroyed by the left wing and the Obama Administration and this is just a further nail in their coffin….Just my opinion America, Fred Brownbill.



US personnel in Bahrain prepare for Ramadan

Ali Hassan, a base cultural adviser at Naval Support Activity Bahrain, briefs about 150 U.S. personnel about Islam, the Islamic lunar calender, and about customs and traditions during Ramadan, Tuesday.

MANAMA, Bahrain — U.S. personnel accustomed to drinking their coffee on the drive to work will have to put that habit on hold for about a month. It’s one of a few lifestyle changes Americans will have to make during the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Officials expect Ramadan to begin at sunrise on Saturday, depending on when the new moon is sighted. The holy month lasts for approximately 30 days — until about July 28. For Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a month of fasting and devotion to God. Most Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, when families gather for Iftar — the meal that breaks the fast.

For the 8,200 U.S. personnel living here, and those serving throughout the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility — including service members, civilian personnel, contractors and family members — the month may require changing some daily routines.

Businesses and government offices will reduce hours and most restaurants will be closed during daylight hours.

While not required to fast during Ramadan, in Bahrain, Americans can be fined or detained by local authorities for eating, drinking or smoking in public when off-base during daylight hours.

Navy officials are requiring U.S. personnel to dress more conservatively off-base during Ramadan. Although not a requirement by Bahraini authorities, the Navy is demanding that men wear long-sleeved shirts and women wear sleeved blouses that cover their elbows. Also, men must wear long trousers, and women should wear pants or skirts that cover the knees.

Base cultural advisers have spent the last few weeks conducting Ramadan briefs to educate Americans about the holy month. Ali Hassan briefed about 150 personnel Tuesday about Islam, the lunar calendar and customs and traditions during Ramadan.

It actually made me want to do a lot more research into the religion, said Petty Officer 1st Class James Ramirez. He said the additional requirements during the month aren't a big deal to him. For such a small period of time, it’s a small sacrifice, he said.

Other service members echoed that sentiment.

Hassan encouraged personnel to experience Iftar in a Ramadan tent, many of which are set up at various locations around Bahrain during the holy month and welcome non-Muslims.

“Make it a point to visit these tents while you’re here. You don’t know if you’ll ever come back to Bahrain in the future,” Hassan said during the brief.

While the tents offer a more traditional atmosphere, many restaurants put aside their regular menus during the month and serve special Iftar dinners.

Things to Know During Ramadan:


Eating, drinking, chewing and smoking in public are civil offenses in some Islamic countries.

Men should wear long sleeves and pants. Women’s sleeves should extend below the elbow and pants or skirts should cover the knees.

Avoid critical remarks about fasting or any religious practice.

Most restaurants will be closed except those in 4- and 5-star hotels.

Businesses alter and reduce hours during the day; some open at night until early morning hours.

Arabs are good hosts and may offer you food or refreshments during daylight hours. Such offers should be declined.

All consumption of alcohol by U.S. military personnel is prohibited at any off base public venue in the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility during Ramadan.

It’s customary to say ‘Ramadan Kareem’ during Ramadan.
