Hope

From my own point of view, the way that a concept like hope can be made useful is when it is not connected to an expected success — when it starts to be something different from optimism — because when you start trying to think ahead into the future from the present point, rationally there really isn’t much room for hope. Globally it’s a very pessimistic affair, with economic inequalities increasing year by year, with health and sanitation levels steadily decreasing in many regions, with the global effects of environmental deterioration already being felt, with conflicts among nations and peoples apparently only getting more intractable, leading to mass displacements of workers and refugees ... It seems such a mess that I think it can be paralysing. If hope is the opposite of pessimism, then there’s precious little to be had. On the other hand, if hope is separated from concepts of optimism and pessimism, from a wishful projection of success or even some kind of a rational calculation of outcomes, then I think it starts to be interesting — because it places it in the present. - Brian Massumi

Victor Ostrovsky

ostrovsky

I briefly mentioned former Mossad agent, Victor Ostrovsky, on Monday (Blackmail). Just thought I would post a bit more about him. He is now a writer and painter, with a gallery dedicated to his work. The above painting, Jerusalem Paradox, was painted by him, and his work clearly reflects his time spent in the underworld of espionage.

CIA/FBI/Mossad are large crime syndicates, and boy do you pay hell if you try to get out and tell the truth:
"When Israels Mossad set out to break me, it found its helpers here at home"

by Victor Ostrovsky
The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs
(October/November 1997, pp 37, 84-85)

"We will get to him by other means, we will break him economically", stated the chief of the Mossad, Israel's CIA, to a Knesset committee after the failure of the government of Israel's attempt to ban publication of my first book, By Way of Deception, in the U.S. and Canada. This statement made on camera was purposely leaked to an Israeli reporter and printed in the weekend edition of Ma'ariv, Israel's leading daily newspaper, with the military censor's approval. Since that day, Israel's foreign intelligence agency has waged a war of attrition against me with the enthusiastic cooperation of its cabal of North American Zionist organizations.

For years as a Canadian-born, Israel-raised former Mossad caseworker I was unwilling to accept the possibility of a wide conspiracy against me. After all, my book had finally been published. What more harm could I do to the country I had left in disgust to return to the land of my birth. Only hitting rock bottom has finally jolted me out of this state of innocence - and optimism that a change of luck is just around the corner. I'm now convinced that I am the target of a broad collusion between elements of the Israel government and their gofers, mostly in the American Jewish community.

Following publication of my By Way of Deception I wrote a spy novel, Lion of Judah, using the spycraft I'd learned with the Mossad as background. The book described a fictional Mossad operation aimed at thwarting a secret peace process underway in the Middle East. (The book was written and published before the real-life, year-long secret negotiations that led to the Oslo accord came to light.)

In the book I revealed considerably more about Mossad techniques than I had in By Way of Deception. But, despite the wide publicity garnered by my first book due to the Israeli government's unsuccessful effort to suppress it, my second book was ignored.

Radio and television interviews that were scheduled by my publisher were canceled almost as soon as they were booked. A speaker's bureau in Toronto, which seldom had trouble arranging speaking engagements with student and other groups eager to have me as a speaker, found that the engagements were cancelled before I could appear. In fact, the cancellations occurred each time a loal B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chapter got wind of them, and they always did.

But, of course, the less I spoke, the more time I had to write. In 1995, when my third book, The Other Side of Deception, another work of non-fiction, was published, the efforts against me were stepped up.

So, on Oct. 21, 1995, I was surprised to be invited by Canadian Television (CTV) producer Ron Fine to do a guest appearance on "Canada AM", the widely viewed Canadian version of "Good Morning America". Scheduled to appear on the same program, via satellite from Israel, was Israeli journalist Yosef Lapid, the former head of Israeli television.

An Appeal To Murder

Lapid had earned his 14 minutes of North American media fame by appealing openly on the Israeli television show "Popolitica" for the Mossad to seek me out in Canada and kill me for writing my books. He had followed this with an article making the same appeal in the Tel Aviv daily Ma'ariv headlined "By Virtue of Murder" [see accompanying article].

On cue, Lapid repeated, as I listened, his call for my assassination on the Canadian television show, but this time with a twist. He said that, since Israel's Mossad could not kill me in Canada without causing a diplomatic incident, "I hope that there would be a decent Jew in Canada who would do the job for us". [...]

Raining Flesh

A disturbing story from yesterday reminded me of something from Charles Fort's work:
"The Kentucky Phenomenon."

So it was called, in its day, and now we have an occurrence that attracted a great deal of attention in its own time. Usually these things of the accursed have been hushed up or disregarded -- sup- [44/45] pressed like the seven black rains of Slains -- but, upon March 3, 1876, something occurred, in Bath County, Kentucky, that brought many newspaper correspondents to the scene.

The substance that looked like beef that fell from the sky.

Upon March 3, 1876, at Olympian Springs, Bath County, Kentucky, flakes of a substance that looked like beef fell from the sky -- "from a clear sky." We'd like to emphasize that it was said that nothing but this falling substance was visible in the sky. It fell in flakes of various sizes; some two inches square, one, three, or four inches square. The flake-formation is interesting: later we shall think of it as signifying pressure -- somewhere. It was a thick shower, on the ground, on trees, on fences, but it was narrowly localized: or upon a strip of land about 100 yards long and about 50 yards wide. For the first account, see the Scientific American, 34-197, and the New York Times, March 10, 1876 . [...]
Here is the recent story:
Flesh chunks found in Iowa water lines

Monday, April 25th, 2005
The Associated Press

CARROLL, Iowa (AP) - City officials are perplexed over the discovery of mysterious chunks of flesh that have been clogging up city water lines. A month ago, city officials sent a hunk of meaty-fatty tissue to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for identification.

As they wait for those results, three similar chunks of fleshy material were found on Thursday in another water main during routine flushing, Public Works Director Randy Krauel said.

A city worker discovered the blockage when a diffuser on a fire hydrant became clogged, Krauel said.

Additional flushing removed two other chunks from water mains, he said.

"Again, we're really not sure what it is," he said. "The pieces kind of looked like the first one. There was no hair and no real bone. There were varying degrees of the substance, whatever it is." [...]
Probably just some animal that came to an unkind end, right? Read all of Charles Fort's books and you may not be so sure anymore. Anyway, I couldn't resist the opportunity to quote him:
"Almost all people are hypnotics. The proper authority saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and the people believed properly." - Charles H. Fort

Blackmail

I posted a couple of days ago about the explosive allegations that the US may be blackmailing Putin into keeping quiet about Russian satellite photos proving that it was not a plane that hit the Pentagon on 9/11.

Blackmail and terrorism are just how things get done, but if you are not aware of how prevelant such activities are today, then such an idea may sound unbelievable.

The US literally wrote the book on blackmailing. The text book that is:

U. S. Army Torture Manuals

[...] In the 1970s, the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School moved to Fort Huachuca in Arizona and began exporting Project X material to U.S. military assistance groups working with "friendly foreign countries." By the mid-1970s, the Project X material was going to armies all over the world. [In its 1992 review, the Pentagon acknowledged that Project X was the source for some of the "objectionable" lessons at the School of the Americas where Latin American officers were trained in blackmail, kidnapping, murder and spying on non-violent political opponents. But disclosure of the full story was blocked near the end of the Bush administration when senior Pentagon officials ordered the destruction of most Project X records. -- See Robert Parry's Lost History: Contras, Cocaine & Other Crimes, and Washington Post, Feb. 22, 1997]. [...]
Sherman Skolnick is often disparaged due to his love of hyperbole, none the less, he makes some good points in his blackmail series:
What really makes the world go round? What is the key factor in foreign relations? What is the important consideration for the aristocracy in deciding who, if anyone, is to run for high office? What is it that the liars and whores of the press do not like to publicly discuss?

If you are that rare person, an independent thinker, somehow not already brainwashed, you guessed it! The Blackmail Business. A potential candidate for high position must first of all, be blackmailable. So that if he or she were to ever later have an independent thought cross their mind, the Establishment, the Ruling Class, "the powers that be", whatever you call THEM, could pull on the chain and discredit and silence their chosen stooge. [...]

No matter what you say when you describe the times we live in, it always comes out sounding like hyperbole anyway. Use the blandest, unemotional language and you can still end up sounding like a wild-eyed fanatic. But that is not the always the fault of the one talking. We are ruled by wild-eyed fanatics, so just repeating what they say out loud makes you sound crazy. Try it some time:

We're talking about a part of the world in which, uhh, you know, our foreign policy was, let's just hope for the best and tolerate the fact there's no free societies. And -- what ended up happening was, there was a -- tyrants have emerged, tyrants that threatened our security. And so not only was the action worth it, the action is worth it to make sure that democracy exists, and, uhh, because democracies will yield peace, and that's what we want. -- Dubya making the case (?) for the invasion of Iraq, Washington, D.C., Apr. 4, 2005 (audio here)
Blackmail is business as usual, as former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani pointed out:
Bush's remarks [were] "rude and impudent," adding that "threats and blackmail might work with people who are afraid of the Americans, but Iran had a long history of revolutionary resistance to American pressure, and adopting such a tone would have an opposite effect."
Israel's Mossad is also extraordinarily adept at the blackmail trade:
Gideon’s Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad

By Gordon Thomas, St. Martin’s Press
Reviewed by Richard H. Curtiss

[...] In his book, Thomas implies that downgrading the FBI search for “Mega,” just when the circle of suspects had been narrowed down, was linked to Clinton succumbing to Israeli blackmail based on the Mossad’s tapes of his telephone conversations with Monica. [...]

IS ISRAEL BLACKMAILING AMERICA?

FOX NEWS SPIKES FOUR PART STORY ON PHONE TAPPING SCANDAL

What follows is the original article I wrote when the news story first broke regarding the existence of a system to tap into any phone in America built into the surveillance system used by law enforcement authorities. Several cases were cited where investigations ranging from drug running and money laundering to the events of 9/11 had been compromised by leaks from the company that operated the phone taps as well as phone data from an associated company that handles billing services for almost every phone in America.

The focus of the article was a single question. Could Israel be blackmailing the entire US Government and media. [...]
I also recommend Victor Ostrovsky's By Way of Deception. He describes several methods of how blackmailing campaigns are conducted. And as we have been recently reminded with the Gannon scandal, many of the power elite like their sex kinky, dangerous and exploitive, making them easy to blackmail; particularly when they are preaching to the family values crowd.

It has become obvious that Mossad had a part in 9/11, so there will obviously be a full frontal attack to cover their tracks:
The MOSSAD Happy Dance

9/11 a CIA-MOSSAD False Flag Operation
Who has gained the most from 9/11? The Bush Regime and their cronies are getting richer by the minute, grabbing power and resources, and curtailing freedoms. Israel is getting the wars they want, while distracting the world's eyes from the plight of the Palestinians.

The idea of Putin being blackmailed is not so outrageous.

An Email from COINTELPRO and Shocking 9/11 Revelations part 2

The Robinowitz operation is mildly clever. There is a lot of energy expended toward promoting the idea that he is only trying to give research into some validity, while at the same time saying the real trouble is peak oil.

He has gone around publicly pushing the idea of peer review for 9/11 research claiming that it is not censorship. He says that the sciences use peer review and that is not censorship. The truth is that there is plenty of censorship in the sciences, and there are numerous shocking and strange ways to censor science. But that is a another story for another day.

9/11 research has no validity in the minds of many US citizens. Many are not even aware that there are unanswered questions. Trying to force honest people to shut up about the weakest link in the official 9/11 narrative will not magically give research into this awful crime any more cachet among these people.

More of these people may begin seeking answers as the US economy crumbles, and as more die in illegal and vile wars. In a strategic move, a major psyop operation has been put into place to confuse, misdirect, and defuse such a situation.

A standard procedure in such operations is to accuse others what they themselves are doing. Those that publish research that shows a high probability that it was not a plane that blew a hole in the side of the pentagon are being accused of somehow hindering the efforts of "true" 9/11 research and its dissemination. Who started this weird narrative?

A reality is being created, just by saying it is so: that research in this crime is being held back by forces other than a rogue US/Israel government; that researchers who debunk the no plane theories somehow have more validity; and that those calling for peer review have somehow been mysteriously appointed as worthy of being a peer while those who think such a concept silly and controlling are not worthy of being included in such a club.

The below is a must read article. I will only quote a few paragraphs, and I highly recommend you check out the full article:
WHY AMERICANS REFUSE TO BELIEVE THE 9/11 EVIDENCE!!!
An Analysis by TvNewsLIES.org - April - 2005

link via Signs of the Times

[...] The point to be made is this: sometimes, the more outrageous an action, the easier it is to get away with. Sometimes, there is no way that people can connect the criminal with the crime: the very idea of guilt is so far out of the norm as to be unthinkable.

Very simply, it is possible to escape blame if you do something that nobody in the world believes you could do. If the deed is egregious enough, even if some proof of your culpability surfaces, you’ll be on safe ground. If people cannot imagine your involvement in an unthinkable action, they will simply not believe you could possible be complicit in its commission. Think about it. [...]

At close inspection, the official version of 9/11 is outrageously full of holes. When those of us who are knowledgeable discuss the evidence that has unearthed about that day, there is so much to reveal that we don’t know where to start or where to stop. When tapped for what we know, we have so much to expose that the torrent of information that rushes can sound like the meaningless rant of a lunatic. Regardless of how credible or tangible the evidence, when rolled out in front of the public, it often sounds too far fetched or irrational to believe.

The facts that have come out about 9/11 differ so greatly from the official story that they almost defy validity. On the contrary, the official version is so simple as to be perfectly believable. It places the entire blame on the work of a handful of terrorists who hated us for our freedom. Case closed.

It is important to keep in mind that the 9/11 issue is not simply a question of whose version of a story is correct. This is a case in which millions of people would be taking a great risk. They would have to consider that the very government they have trusted and supported for more than four years may have participated in an unthinkable atrocity. That, in itself, may be impossible. By opening their minds to an objective examination of what has been discovered about the 9/11 attacks, millions of Americans would have to abandon their blind faith in this administration, and reject the mistaken belief that those in charge of our nation can do no wrong. That, too, may be impossible.

Herein lies the paradox. If the American people want truth they must acknowledge that they have been deceived. If that were to happen, and if they were to accept the facts that have been uncovered by the independent 9/11 research community, their faith in their government would be irreparably destroyed. In the long run, it is far easier to maintain one’s faith in a deceptive government than to deal with the painful details of that deception. [...]

An Email from COINTELPRO and Shocking 9/11 Revelations

It is bound to happen eventually.

Search for the truth long enough, post a little about it, and you will be contacted. Apparently no blog is small enough to avoid attention.

I started a blog, 9.11 Soundbytes, to post quotes from the memory hole on the terrorist attack as I found them. I received an interesting email from Mark Robinowitz of oilempire.us regarding the blog, and I will share a small fraction of it with you.

My guess is that he regularly sends something similar to all sites that link to The Pentagon Strike Video. The email makes him appear more like a paid COINTELPRO agent, or so I think.
Stumbled upon your site -

the "Pentagon Strike" video has been debunked by many of the best
writers on 9/11 complicity issues - such as the author of the
911research site you list. [...]
Now for a bit of context. The Pentagon has all but announced that they are using propaganda:
U.S. government planting propaganda and misleading stories in the international media

BBC News
By Tom Carver
Wednesday, 20 February, 2002
Washington correspondent

The Pentagon is toying with the idea of black propaganda.

As part of George Bush's war on terrorism, the military is thinking of
planting propaganda and misleading stories in the international media.

A new department has been set up inside the Pentagon with the Orwellian
title of the Office of Strategic Influence.

It is well funded, is being run by a general and its aim is to influence
public opinion abroad.

Black and white

It has been canvassing opinion within the Pentagon on what it should do. [...]
I have written briefly here about psyop operations, and have posted an image of a propaganda wheel from a 1950's government sponsored research paper demonstrating methods used. There is plenty of evidence that such activities have never stopped, and US citizens are a primary target of propaganda or psyops as it is now called.

Regular readers know that I am opposed to the Peak Oil concept, particularly when it is used to downplay the obvious crimes of the Bush Regime. In a blatant and obvious attempt at sleight of hand trickery, Ruppert (and buddyRobinowitz) is telling us to not look at the man behind the curtain, instead focus on our impending economic collapse due to peak oil.

While searching for information on the email I received, I turned up this very interesting tidbit:
David Beckham and Flight 77 in Paris
[...] The dinner itself was "normal" in every respect, and MOST of the conversation was also "normal." It only got strange when politics - including the subject of George Bush and 9-11 - was brought up.

Our friends who circulate socially among various government officials brought out some photos to show of a recent private party. Among the attendees of said party - which I reiterate, was private and not an "official function," was the brother of Vladimir Putin! There was the usual grouping of various ministers, AND one of the most powerful men in the Financial World (and here I don't mean America, I mean the GLOBAL Financial world!)

What was interesting about these photos was the obvious camaraderie of these individuals depicted in the photographs. There was Vlad's brother whooping it up with what were obviously close pals in France.

Hmmmm...

So, of course I asked about this. What came next was, in a sense, quite shocking. It seems that it is common knowledge in these circles that Russian satellites photographed a ship-launched craft (seems to have been a drone type plane rather than a missle) that ended up impacting the Pentagon on Sept 11, 2001, and that, for various reasons this information has been withheld from the public.

I was naturally startled to hear this even though I have long held the opinion that it was NOT a commercial jetliner that hit the Pentagon. I think the thing that startled me was the fact that, if Russia (and perhaps other countries with satellites?) had proof that Flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon, why weren't they revealing this?

It was explained to me that during part of the time George Bush was "incommunicado" on September 11, 2001, he was on the phone to Putin "negotiating." That was a polite way of saying "blackmailing." Apparently, Bush, by way of MOSSAD and/or the CIA had enough goods on Vlad to keep him silent.

Now THAT explains why Putin has not responded publicly to the rather obnoxious criticisms of Russia made by Bush and Condi Rice.

In any event, it was explained to me further that these satellite photos HAD been revealed to Thierry Meyssan who was asked by either French or Russian intell to write his book "Pentagate" to "leak" the info that Flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon. His instructions were, apparently, that he had to "make the case" without recourse to official backing; he couldn't refer to the satellite photos.

Well, suddenly, a LOT of things began to make sense. [...]
A lot of pieces begin to fall into place if we begin to consider that the above has some validity (and I do). The above post from Perfect Infidel, goes on to discuss the author of the email sent to me, Mark Rabinowitz:
Another interesting event in this timeline was the creation of a website with the domain name oilempire.us. This site lists what it calls "Bogus 9-11 Websites" saying:
The three biggest stories used to alienate the public from 9/11 truth

1. No Planes on 9/11 (Pentagon, North Tower WTC, "pod plane" at South
Tower, Pennsylvania)
2. The Jews Did It (Israel had foreknowledge and possibly played a role,
but that doesn't justify anti-semitism and Holocaust Denial)
3. The Victims' Phone Calls Were Faked (a way to keep the 9/11 families
and the skeptics from working together)

why are there bogus 9/11 websites? a mix of malice and incompetence, but both make real evidence harder to find
Considering the very good case for the involvement of MOSSAD in 9-11, the very good case that the victims phone calls WERE faked, not to mention what I have discovered about satellite photos on 9-11, it sure does look like the Oil Empire Website is a "plant," so to say. So I did a whois lookup. Here's what I found: [...] [catalytic: I cut out the whois information]

The site is claimed by a Mark Rabinowitz even if it was "prepared for use" as early as February of 2003. That, in itself, is rather suspicious. Seems that this was right about the time that the Meyssan book was making a splash.

Robinowitz was posting on usenet as far back as 1994 in regards to an auto free DC. He's on a few dc.biking threads on usenet.

Rabinowitz then did some reporting for the Institute of Global Communications based in MD.
[See: http://www.igc.apc.org/]

He then moved to Eugene, Oregon by the looks of things and is into permaculture. He appears to be coming from a "green" perspective. He got into the Y2K hysteria for a bit and now it appears he's onto the "Peak Oil deal" via Ruppert.

Do a Ruppert- Robinowitz search on google and you'll see what I mean in regards to the Ruppert promotion.

So it DOES look like Ruppert - who has been quoted as promoting the "no plane theory" but has now advised everybody to just "forget 9-11 and concentrate on Peak Oil" - has a strange bedfellow with Rabinowitz.

Shades of COINTELPRO!
The Pentagon Strike Video has been such a hit on the internet that even the Washington Post sat up and took notice. Something had to be done.

Now just imagine what you would do, if you committed the crime of the century and had infinite resources to cover it up along with willing lackeys to sally forth and do your bidding. I am reminded of an old AC/DC song.

Playing along with the Bush Regime is much worse than anything the anti-hero of that song could imagine doing. 9/11 has been used to justify mass murder and genocide. For the Worldwide Attack Matrix to continue, it is imperative that the truth not come out.

And they might have overplayed their hand with blowing a hole in the side of the Pentagon. Hubris will get you every time.

I have not yet seen a reasonable explanation as to how a plane could plow into the side of Pentagon in the heaviest defended air space in the world - without destroying the lawn or the lamp posts. The Regime is counting on most of us to not question the official story. For the rest of us, they send out their agents to create a lot of confusion and misdirection.

Even with the message that the Bush regime allowed it to happen, justification can be made in the minds of some that we should continue and escalate the "War on Terrorism". That psyop fantasy still handily delivers the idea of the enemy out there, ready to strike at any moment, so give up your freedoms as we march off to war.

Who had the resources to pull of such an attack? Who has benefited from these wars? Certainly not the people of Iraq or Afghanistan, who had nothing to do with anyway. As the US and Israel prepare to escalate the violence, we can expect more desperate attempts to have us look away from the truth.

Check out the The Center for an Informed America for more humorous tales of the ridiculous lengths these bad stage magicians will go. Who better to debunk a conspiracy than suppossed conspiracy researchers?

Anyone else been contacted by Robinowitz and care to share?

Update: I have responded to Robinowitz's recent charges - Robinowitz and "Snitch Jacketing"

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

The new pope is announced. Yeah, he had a brief turn with the Hitler Youth, but his current obsessions are also troubling.

Look out Buddhists. You are considered one of the prime enemies of the church. Does anyone else find that a bit, well, insane? Sanity has never been a strong suit of the rich and powerful.

God help you if you happen to be a gay Buddhist. You don't deserve basic civil rights according to the Ratz.

From Worldbeaters:
Currently the suave, white-haired German Cardinal runs the Church’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This august organization is occasionally referred to as the Holy Office but it is perhaps best known by an older name – the Inquisition. You history buffs will remember the Inquisition: those Catholic zealots who in the Middle Ages couldn’t abide apostates and doubters of the One True Faith. They perfected the use of thumbscrews and the rack to force Jews, Muslims and other dissenters to adopt the Vatican’s more ‘accurate’ understanding of Christianity. [...]

In 1986 Ratzinger issued a letter to the Catholic Bishops in which he wrote that homosexuality was a ‘tendency’ towards an ‘intrinsic moral evil’. A few years later, in 1992, he rejected the notion of human rights for gays, stressing that their civil liberties could be ‘legitimately limited’. He followed up by remarking that ‘neither the church nor society should be surprised’ if ‘irrational and violent reactions increase’ when gays demand civil rights. Not a man to mince his words, Ratzinger urgently set to work to ferret out gay-sensitive clergy.[...]

As if that weren’t enough, the ever-busy Cardinal has used his privileged take on the Truth to set back inter-faith tolerance and religious pluralism a few decades. In 1997 Ratzinger annoyed Buddhists by calling their religion an ‘autoerotic spirituality’ that offers ‘transcendence without imposing concrete religious obligations’. And Hinduism, he said, offers ‘false hope’; it guarantees ‘purification’ based on a ‘morally cruel’ concept of reincarnation resembling ‘a continuous circle of hell’. The Cardinal predicted Buddhism would replace Marxism as the Catholic Church’s main enemy this century. [...]

Ratzinger helped put together The Church and the Mistakes of the Past, a stirring apology for 2,000 years of violence and persecution by the Catholic Church, which the Pope released last March. ‘Even men [sic] of the church, in the name of faith and morals, have sometimes used methods not in keeping with the Gospel,’ said Ratzinger. [...]
And that's okay, he might as well have added. Sounds like a Bush supporter. We can probably expect more of the "Might makes right" and "The ends justify the means" kind of theology. Would we expect any less from the church?

Internet Black OP's

When things begin to really go wrong with the internet, and they claim it is due to terrorist activity, but what they really want to do is silence truth, remember these people:
U.S. Military's Elite Hacker Crew

The U.S. military has assembled the world's most formidable hacker posse: a super-secret, multimillion-dollar weapons program that may be ready to launch bloodless cyberwar against enemy networks -- from electric grids to telephone nets.

The group's existence was revealed during a U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee hearing last month. Military leaders from U.S. Strategic Command, or Stratcom, disclosed the existence of a unit called the Joint Functional Component Command for Network Warfare, or JFCCNW.

In simple terms and sans any military parlance, the unit could best be described as the world's most formidable hacker posse. Ever. [...]

Capt. Damien Pickart, a Stratcom spokesman, issued a short statement in response: "The DOD is capable of mounting offensive CNA. For security and classification reasons, we cannot discuss any specifics. However, given the increasing dependence on computer networks, any offensive or defensive computer capability is highly desirable."

Nevertheless, Verton says military personnel have told him numerous "black programs" involving CNA capabilities are ongoing, while new polices and rules of engagement are now on the books. [...]
If you study the long arm of COINTELPRO activity, you realize that the power structure has no problems with using their capabilities on US citizens. That phrase, "new...rules of engagement", is not comforting.

This story reminded me that back in 2003 it was discovered that a Naval ship was being used as a spam relay: The amphibious transport dock and spam relay.

My paranoid mind asks the question, were they cracked or was this part of the plan for causing trouble on the internet?

Speaking of internet problems, I just tried to publish this post and got one of those server errors. The new recover post function worked this time.

Alien Agenda part II

freaky_skull

I am posting this photo for no good reason, except that it is freaky as hell.

I will get back to peak oil. From what I can tell so far, the concept of peak oil will be/is a big psyop production that will be used to justify a lot of horrors.

I want to look at the type of monsters that are getting press. So much press that one would think that the mass of US citizens think like these people.

And the Verdict on Justice Kennedy Is: Guilty

[...] Phyllis Schlafly, doyenne of American conservatism, said Kennedy's opinion forbidding capital punishment for juveniles "is a good ground of impeachment." To cheers and applause from those gathered at a downtown Marriott for a conference on "Confronting the Judicial War on Faith," Schlafly said that Kennedy had not met the "good behavior" requirement for office and that "Congress ought to talk about impeachment." [...]
Ms. Schlafly wants Kennedy impeached because he does not advocate the state killing juveniles. Good behavior is state endorsed murder.
[...] Vieira, a constitutional lawyer who wrote "How to Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary," escalated the charges, saying a Politburo of "five people on the Supreme Court" has a "revolutionary agenda" rooted in foreign law and situational ethics. Vieira, his eyeglasses strapped to his head with black elastic, decried the "primordial illogic" of the courts.

Invoking Stalin, Vieira delivered the "no man, no problem" line twice for emphasis. "This is not a structural problem we have; this is a problem of personnel," he said. "We are in this mess because we have the wrong people as judges." [...]
I highly recommend today's Signs of the Times commentary on the above article.

While Vieira is busy invoking Stalin, lets take a look at what Stalin wrought:
About one million people were shot during the periods 1935–38, 1942 and 1945–50 and millions of people were transported to Gulag labour camps. In Georgia about 80,000 people were shot during 1921, 1923–24, 1935–38, 1942 and 1945-50, and more than 100,000 people were transported to Gulag camps.

On March 5, 1940, Stalin himself and other Soviet leaders signed the order to execute 25,700 Polish intelligentsia including 14,700 Polish POWs. It became known as Katyn massacre. See massacre of prisoners.

It is generally agreed by historians that if famines, prison and labour camp mortality, and state terrorism (deportations and political purges) are taken into account, Stalin and his colleagues were directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of millions. How many millions died under Stalin is greatly disputed. Although no official figures have been released by the Soviet or Russian governments, most estimates put the figure between 8 and 20 million. [...]

A quote popularly attributed to Stalin is "The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic." (possibly said in response to Churchill at the Potsdam Conference in 1945). [...]
I have no doubt that US citizens will be reviled and hated around the world soon. (More than we are now. This time it is personal.) I am pretty sure this is exactly what the Bush/neo-con regime wants. They are in the business of creating enemies out there. What better way to justify perpetual war than have the entire world our enemy.

A culture of death has a death grip on the media. A regular Manson death cult. Except these people outsource the killing, and are calling for the heads of those who don't have their values.

We better speak up while we still can. Most of us are not like these people.

From the referenced Signs commentary:
Americans who have Love and Empathy for all humanity and who are horrified to see what America has become must UNITE and form bonds of trust, communication, reason, common cause, and TRUTH that will help us to find the ways and means, as peacefully as possible, to get these psychopaths who are destroying America and other countries, who aim at nothing less than the ownership and destruction of the entire Earth, confined in a way and a place where they can never again do to humanity what they are doing now.

Alien Agenda

Grappling with all that is going on right now can be a bit overwhelming. You admit one little aspect of horrifying truth, and the whole edifice of belief that we are going to muddle through this period of turmoil, come out on the other side, perhaps a bit shaken but not much worse for wear, can quickly crumble.

Make no mistake about it. The US is running concentration camps:
Man's Claims May Be a Look at Dark Side of War on Terror

United Vegetative States of America

[...] When they were shedding tears over Schiavo, not very long back an Iraqi girl Fatima was being repeatedly raped by the beasts that guarded Abu Ghraib prison. Here is an excerpt from her heart-rending letter to Iraqi resistance fighters:

"...I say to you: our wombs have been filled with the children of fornication by those sons of apes and pigs who raped us. Or I could tell you that they have defaced our bodies, spit in our faces, and tore up the little copies of the Qur'an that hung around our necks? ....By God, we have not passed one night since we have been in prison without one of the apes and pigs jumping down upon us to rip our bodies apart with his overweening lust. Kill us along with them! Destroy us along with them! Don't leave us here to let them get pleasure from raping us....Leave their tanks and aircraft outside. Come at us here in the prison of Abu Ghurayb.

"They raped me on one day more than nine times. Can you comprehend? Imagine one of your sisters being raped. Why can't you all imagine it, as I am your sister. With me are 13 girls, all unmarried. All have been raped before the eyes and ears of everyone. They took our clothes and won't let us get dressed. As I write this letter one of the girls has committed suicide. She was savagely raped. A soldier hit her on her chest and thigh after raping her. He subjected her to unbelievable torture. She beat her head against the wall of the cell until she died, for she couldn't take any more. [...]
It is almost taboo to speak of current events in the workplace or on the street here in the US. We are at war. We will be at war for the rest of our lives. It seems that many US citizens assume we will carry on as always.

Don't count on it. After careful planning, an economic collapse appears to be in the works.

In the past raping and pillaging was conducted a bit more discreetly, although there was plenty of evidence available for anyone who cared. Now, it is known that we will keep our mouths shut, allowing elections to be stolen, and giving in to an insane and vocal minority who are full of lust for Armageddon. So, expect more of the same.

We can expect to have the predator turn its hot gaze our way. Oh, we will scream. It may just be too late by then. We couldn't stop the torture and pain of those slightly different or out of our sight.

Every era in human history has its troubles. Right now it looks like we are in some crazy mash up of the WWII era and the Crusades. I don't suppose we are so special that we should be reserved from such horrors. We humans have always given up our free will with great abandon. Not much better than slaves really.

It so hard to discover the truth. Particularly when there are so many mythical constructs created with our ignorance and willingness to believe in mind. It so much easier to just believe in what sounds reasonable or fits in with what we desire to be true.

We are practically insane in how we cling to what we perceive as reasonable. How easy it is to discount out of hand anything that does not fit in with how we think the universe should work. It may be our undoing.

There is the other side of the spectrum also. Many of us jump at the outrageous explanations of reality, even with little evidence, in some desire to make sense of the world. I suppose there is the same narcissistic motivations at the root of both ends of the spectrum. We all want to play at god, and rearrange the universe as we see fit. We are filled with shoulds, and there is little room for how it really is.

Psyop operations work well at both ends of the spectrum and have integrated themselves nicely in both. There is some suitable psyop operation flavor available for nearly all palates to help palliate crimes of the state.

"Land of the free. Home of the brave." Complete myth now. To continue believing such, is to deny reality. There are a few brave souls out there, but most of us are busy hiding behind the skirt of mass media myth making. We are only free to believe in what we are told.

I noticed a particularly bizarre flavor of psyop activity that seems to be appealing to some: Some Columbian guy is writing that Nostradamus predicted an overwhelming horde of Muslims, generally raising hell and mayhem everywhere, and destroying civilization. No specific references to quatrains or anything supportive. Just your basic racism. The blog Steel Magnolia has some interesting things to say about Nostradamus.

We know the reverse is true: an overwhelming horde of Americans have been invading or planning to invade just about everywhere. There is even a name for it: The Worldwide Attack Matrix. The word terrorist has been redefined: Anyone who does not lie down and allow the US/Israel murder machine roll over them and their family. This definition is already being directed toward US citizens. Pretty much 24 hours a day on Fox.

While we are alive, we might as well make the most of it. No use just sitting around just playing the good consumer. (Even after the money is gone, many of us will probably consume what ever myth we are told as to why it is gone.)

Who knows what we may discover along the way? We do live in an open universe.

It is almost bewildering what is going on in our little world. Almost unbelievable.

We are caught in the headlights of an agenda alien to our understanding. An agenda so bereft of anything human, that many of us are having difficulties understanding how evil or entropic it is; how destitute and destructive to anything that we may perceive as desirable.

The psychopaths in the Bush regime may take us all on a journey that may open our eyes a bit. Maybe they will even over play their hand.

21 Jump Street

I have been absent from the blogsphere for way too long. Time to get back into the swing of things. I have spent some time wrapping my mind around just what exactly is going on our little world, am refreshed and ready to go. I'll just dip my toe back in with this little item:
Fascist 'public-private' narc op busts high schoolers

This is really outrageous. "Private-sector" intelligence agents hired by local police to spy on schoolkids. Source link has video, etc.

From WPCO-TV Cincinnati 4/5/2005:
9News is learning new information about the drug bust at Milford High School that ended with the arrests of 16 students.

The bust came after the school district along with the police department hired an undercover agent from a private company based in Dayton to pose as a student.

For seven months, a 23-year-old female college graduate posed as a Milford High School student.

As a result of her work, police say she was able to buy drugs from students including ecstasy, mushrooms, and marijuana. [...]
This little incident reminded me of a Fox television show:
21 Jump Street was about a group of under-age looking cops
who went undercover on high schools to catch young criminals before they become older, more dangerous criminals. In later seasons, the team went less and less undercover on high schools, and the plots focused more on the cops' personal lives.

21 Jump Street was FOX'S first most serious drama and also its first hit series. It strove to be a better show than average. Especially in the first two seasons, the plots were very tightly written and the internal continuity puts a whole lot of today's shows to shame. It dipped a bit after the departure of Patrick Hasburgh at the end of the 2nd season and became somewhat of a showcase to show pretty faces.
We should all be worried when reality is mirrored by Fox TV.
