This post comprises a selection of key documents and videos which precedes an introduction that was written at the beginning of the scamdemic. Much of what was written in March 2020 has come to pass. There is a concentrated propaganda onslaught in the media and across the internet crushing independent, scientific, geopolitical and economic analysis. Elements within the British government, British Intelligence and Psychological Operations Army unit 77 Brigade are fully involved in making sure critical analysis of the COVID-19 vaccinations and lockdown measures are prevented and/or ridiculed.

This false narrative extends to Wikipedia, so-called “fact-checkers” and deluded individual commentators who cannot bring themselves to question this pretext because it would mean questioning everything else. Not many people are prepared to do that, which is why we are in the mess we are.

This isn’t about creating whacky conspiracy theories with no evidence. It’s about highlighting a proven psychological assault on global populations, involving medical malpractice, corporate profiteering, media corruption and a long-term program for social and economic transformation. There is abundant evidence this is taking place in plain sight.

Acquiescence encourages an inability to recognise truth from lies; it weakens conscience and strengthens those who are in it for power and greed. There is a line being drawn which offers a choice to be on the right side of history. The type of future we create will depend on whether each of us supported tyranny or resisted it. This is a call for those who are able to see the writing on the wall and to begin organised and peaceful civil disobedience.

We can only make an authentic choice by building our knowledge base, asking the right questions and networking with others. I hope the information within these pages will make that choice easier.

What COVID-19 is all about…

[March 2020] If you are new to all this information its probably a wise move not to read this post all in one go otherwise you’ll likely zone out and not come back. Take your time and dip in and out over a day or a few days. There’s a lot to take in. 

Suffice to say, we are being subjected to the biggest propaganda event ever witnessed in modern times.

Why? because  “Now Is The Time For a ‘Great Reset’.

Yes, it’s all about global economics. If you read the World Economic Forum article above, you’ll hopefully connect the dots to see that the fake revolution and riots in the USA and the equally fake corona virus is all about restructuring the global economy. But first you have to ensure wave after wave of lock downs.

Never let a good crisis go to waste.

And if you haven’t got a crisis then you simply create one. This is the story of history.

I’ve put together a collection of extracts, links and my own brief commentary here and there to show that the corona virus is NOT a pandemic nor is there any justification for these global lock downs.

There is a virus, and it is similar to a nasty flu – but that’s it. Thanks to these politically motivated lock downs however, when these rules are “relaxed” we will see an explosion of genuine and more serious disease.

This is not a left or right issue either. All political beliefs should be aligned when it comes to calling out the authoritarian agenda that’s using  pseudoscience and corporatism to push through their economic and ideological imperatives. As a result, official statistics cannot be trusted.

Too many people are placing their trust in government and the media. Many of us know there is something “off” about this “crisis” but are unwilling to make the leap to discover why. Authority is a big deal for humans and it can be a scary thing to jump into the unknown away from those we believe have our best interests at heart and will keep us safe.

In this post we’ll start with the statistics and the science and move on from there. Don’t forget to look at the links page which will be updated every three days.

The above may sound nonsensical and ridiculous to many of you. But over the next year or so, you are going to find many bizarre things happening in the name of “protection”. And it will pay dividends for everyone to begin to understand just what is going on here. That won’t be pleasant or easy, but it needs to happen if we value truth.

The stakes might be quite high for those who believe this is just a “blip” and normal service will be resumed.

By the time you have read this post in its entirety, in one sitting or over a few days, at the very least, you’ll have a more discerning view of what the media and global governments are piping into your mind.

I know many people who prefer to live in fear and can’t even be bothered to inform themselves outside the endless and incessant brainwashing of our media outlets, be it Sky, or BBC, CNN or Channel 4.

If you read all this information and conclude it’s all hogwash – no problem. But at least you’ll have made the effort to discover what may be going on and made your own conscious choice to do so.

If you conclude that there is indeed a huge gap between state information and what appears to be going on objectively – as in real science – then this will undoubtedly raise more questions. Some of the answers to those questions you might find in this post, or you may have to keep your eyes and ears open for new information as it comes to light. I’ll do my best to include those developments in the links page.

Please forward this post on to those you think might also benefit.

Let’s get started.

Here’s a simple summary of the real picture as opposed to the government, WHO and selected paid up and deluded scientists. Journalist Kit Knightly from Off Guardian published an article that puts it in plain terms: “It’s All Bullsh*t” – 3 Leaks That Sink The COVID Narrative:

The science of the coronavirus is not disputed. It is well documented and openly admitted:

  • Most people won’t get the virus.

  • Most of the people who get it won’t display symptoms.

  • Most of the people who display symptoms will only be mildly sick.

  • Most of the people with severe symptoms will never be critically ill.

  • And most of the people who get critically ill will survive.

This is borne out by the numerous serological studies which show, again and again, that the infection fatality ratio is on par with flu.

There is no science – and increasingly little rational discussion – to justify the lockdown measures and overall sense of global panic.

Nevertheless, it’s always good to get official acknowledgement of the truth, even if it has to be leaked.

Here are three leaks showing that those in power know that the coronavirus poses no threat, and in no way justifies the lockdown that is going to destroy the livelihoods of so many.

1. “It’s all bullshit!”

On May 26th Dr Alexander Myasnikov, Russia’s head of coronavirus information, gave an interview to former-Presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak in which he apparently let slip his true feelings.

Believing the interview over, and the camera turned off, Myasnikov said:

It’s all bullshit […] It’s all exaggerated. It’s an acute respiratory disease with minimal mortality […] Why has the whole world been destroyed? That I don’t know,”


2. “Covid-19 cannot be described as a generally dangerous disease”

According to an e-mail leaked to Danish newspaper Politiken, the Danish Health Authority disagree with their government’s approach to the coronavirus. They cover it in two articles here and here (For those who don’t speak Danish, thelocal.dk have covered the story too).

There’s a lot of interesting information there, not least of which is the clear implication that politicians appear to be pressing the scientific advisors to overstate the danger (they did the same thing in the UK), along with the decision of some civil servants to withhold data from the public until after the lockdown had been extended.

But by far the most important quote is from a March 15th e-mail [our emphasis]:

“The Danish Health Authority continues to consider that covid-19 cannot be described as a generally dangerous disease, as it does not have either a usually serious course or a high mortality rate.”

On March 12th the Danish parliament passed an emergency law which – among many other things – decreased the power of the Danish Health Authority, demoting it from a “regulatory authority” to just an “advisory” one.

3. “A Global False Alarm”

Earlier this month, on May 9th, a report was leaked to the German alternate media magazine Tichys Einblick titled “Analysis of the Crisis Management”.

The report was commissioned by the German department of the interior, but then its findings were ignored, prompting one of the authors to release it through non-official channels.

The fall out of that, including attacks on the authors and minimising of the report’s findings, is all very fascinating and we highly recommend this detailed report on Strategic Culture (or read the full report here in German).

We’re going to focus on just the reports conclusions, including [our emphasis]:

  • The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
  • The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
  • During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

After being attacked in the press, and suspended from his job, the leaker and other authors of the report released a joint statement, calling on the government to respond to their findings.

If the current crisis was being approached rationally by all parties, these leaks would seal the debate.

Evidence is piling up that the people in charge knew, from the very beginning, that the virus was not dangerous.

The question remaining is: Why are these leaks happening now?


Why indeed? And let’s remember alongside all of the statistical conflation it has since been discovered that over 95% of UK Covid-19 deaths had a pre-existing condition. What does that say about our so-called “Pandemic”?

So, let’s have a look at some numbers for a comparison:

1918 Influenza pandemic:

  • Global cases: 500 million

  • Global deaths: over 50 million

Seasonal Flu:

  • Global cases annually: about 1 billion infections

  • Global deaths annually: between 291,000 to 646,000

2009 (H1N1) flu pandemic

  • Global cases: about 60.8 million

  • Global deaths: over 284,000

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Global Cases: 6,325,303

Global deaths: 377,460 [as of June 2nd]


Sad as it is to lose anyone in this way, 17,337 deaths  in the UK is not a pandemic. This is especially true when many (perhaps even most) are deaths from entirely different diseases or conditions. 

As of June 2nd, 2020, the total global death tally was 377,60. That translates into approx. 0.004 % of the global population.

As we go forward from statistics which are inherently wrong, you’ll be getting more and more inflated figures, be they 300,000 or one million.

This does not justify global lock downs nor the destruction of people’s livelihoods. Besides, 52 years ago, a pandemic flu killed 100,000 in the US and nothing shut down—not even Woodstock. And what about the ‘80,000 people who died of flu 2017 in the U.S., “the highest death toll in 40 years”??

Furthermore, seasonal flu maybe TWICE as Deadly as Coronavirus, Danish study revealed that coronavirus may be almost 20x less deadly than WHO predicted and scientists are learning that People are recovering from COVID-19 ‘like they would from the flu’

Perhaps this is why the numbers just don’t add up with nearly 500,000 people who went to hospital in 2018-19 flu season but today, there are not enough hospital beds for coronavirus patients…

Hmmm.

All these new makeshift hospitals… Yet they are empty…Where Are All The Coronavirus Patients?

“I would say the best advice is to spend less time watching TV news which is sensational and not very good. I view this Covid outbreak as akin to a bad winter influenza epidemic. We are suffering from a media epidemic!“

Professor John Oxford, the UK’s top expert on influenza and Emeritus Professor of Virology at the University of London


FAUCI and FRAUDULENT SCIENCE

America’s “top” immunologist Anthony Fauci MD and his March 26 2020 article in the New England Journal of Medicine ‘Covid-19 — Navigating the Uncharted’ is quite the eye-opener. Here is the most important snippet:

“If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.”

That’s: 0.1%

We are shutting down nations for a strain of flu that is actually milder than the standard seasonal influenza.

Fauci has since shown his true colours and joined the hysteria for reasons of his own and that peer-reviewed study from just a couple of weeks ago has been buried. In fact, Fauci is about as corrupt as you can get. This particular doctor has a reputation for greed and double-dealing. Take for instance his ‘GLOBAL VACCINE ACTION PLAN’ that he organised with vaccine fanatic Bill Gates before pushing the COVID panic and doubts about the Hydroxychloroquine treatments…

Dr. Judy Mikovits PhD – Exposes Gates, Fauci, Corrupt Science

But there’s a lot more evidence from doctors and academics that the actual treatment of COVID-19 is worse than the virus itself. And you can always produce endless mutations to feed the fear and ensure partial or full lockdowns as many times as you like. The populations will become more and more demoralised and eventually clamour for normality, but that “normality” will be predefined according their agenda, not yours.

Meantime, on top of the drastic manipulation of COVID-19 cases and deaths, we have a further problem: a Higher mortality rate in ventilated COVID-19 patients due to a clear misunderstanding of the virus and its treatment. People with underlying conditions are being killed by a treatment designed to cure COVID-19.

Mike Whitney explains in this article: Are ventilators killing more people than they’re saving?

Answer: Yes. Discovery: Autopsies Prove that COVID-19 is a Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Pulmonary Thrombosis)

“It is now clear that the whole world has been attacking the so-called Coronavirus Pandemic wrongly due to a serious pathophysiological diagnosis error. According to valuable information from Italian pathologists, ventilators and intensive care units were never needed. Autopsies performed by the Italian pathologists has shown that it is not pneumonia but it is Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Thrombosis) which ought to be fought with antibiotics, antivirals, anti-inflammatories and anticoagulants.”


Do you want to know why there are so many deaths put down to COVID-19?

“It is important to emphasize that Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death. Other terminology, e.g., SARS-CoV-2, can be used as long as it is clear that it indicates the 2019 coronavirus strain, but we would prefer use of WHO’s standard terminology, e.g., COVID-19. Specification of the causal pathway leading to death in Part I of the certificate is also important. For example, in cases when COVID-19 causes pneumonia and fatal respiratory distress, both pneumonia and respiratory distress should be included along with COVID-19 in Part I. ”

There’s your pseudoscience right there.

We have US coronavirus task force leader Dr. Deborah Birx confirming the above CDC policy stating this month (April 2020):

“I think in this country, we are taking a very liberal approach to mortality. And I think the reporting here has been pretty straightforward over the last five to six weeks,” she said, adding..

…’If someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that.’

There are other countries, that if you have a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus called you to go to the ICU (intensive care unit) and then have a heart or kidney problem,” she explained. “Some countries are recording that as a kidney issue, or a heart issue, and not a COVID-19 death.” In the U.S., Dr. Birx suggested,…

…’we’re still recording it’ as a COVID-19 death.”

Sorry, what?

This is not only unscientific but amounts to fraud.  She is nonchalantly admitting that they don’t care if someone died of an unrelated illness – they count it anyway. There is a big difference between dying OF COVID-19 and dying WITH COVID-19.

We know that most of those “cases” are likely not corona virus at all, and if they are, then equally, most people will recover. Which is probably why Italy has admitted that 99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illnesses and why the testing methodology is a joke. But you generally won’t hear about that on the BBC or Sky, just hackneyed attempts to evoke the “war time spirit” amidst the doom and gloom gravitas from journalists who should know better. But they prefer their pay cheques to the truth with the resulting panic that has now become worse than the pathogen, as journalist Tony Cartalucci rightly explains..

And why would we believe anything the World Health Organisation has to say, when it is led by an individual who is suspected of perpetrating crimes against humanity and where the organisation as a whole is firmly inside the pocket of pharmaceutical companies?


The distinction between dying ‘with’ Covid-19 and dying ‘due to’ Covid-19 is not just splitting hairs. Consider some examples: an 87-year-old woman with dementia in a nursing home; a 79-year-old man with metastatic bladder cancer; a 29-year-old man with leukaemia treated with chemotherapy; a 46-year-old woman with motor neurone disease for 2 years. All develop chest infections and die. All test positive for Covid-19. Yet all were vulnerable to death by chest infection from any infective cause (including the flu).

– How to understand & report figures for ‘Covid deaths’The Spectator, 29th March 2020


Make no mistake, this is an imposed official narrative that amounts to a dictatorship. The US Bill of Rights and European democracy mean NOTHING.

If you believe these numbers then you are believing a LIE. And you are WILLINGLY doing what the consortium of interests behind the government wants you to do. (See The Top Twelve Lies about Covid19)

If you are compliant then you are effectively welcoming a new “second wave.”

If you allow them to control the narrative you allow them to control your mind.

DO NOT TRUST THE OFFICIAL NUMBERS.

Now read this extract from Coronavirus Death Predictions Bring New Meaning to Hysteria By Michael Fumento


EPIDEMICS ALWAYS FLATTEN AND DECLINE ON THEIR OWN

Fact is, the epidemic worldwide, far from “growing exponentially,” is slowing. And that was to be expected per what’s called “Farr’s Law,” which dictates that all epidemics tend to rise and fall in a roughly symmetrical pattern or bell-shaped curve. AIDS, SARS, Ebola, Zika – all followed that pattern. So does seasonal flu each year. COVID-19 peaks have already been reported in China, South Korea, and Singapore.

Importantly, Farr’s Law has nothing to do with human interventions such as “social distancing” to “flatten the curve,” and indeed predates public health organizations. It occurs because communicable diseases nab the “low-hanging fruit” first (in this case the elderly with comorbid conditions), but then find subsequent fruit harder and harder to reach. Until more or less now, COVID-19 has been finding that fresh fruit in new countries, but it’s close to running out. So while many people assume that China contained its epidemic with draconian regulations, we actually have no evidence of that. Even the New York Times admitted South Korea recovered far more quickly with measures nowhere on the scale of China, although of course the Times still attributes that to human intervention, which assigning no role to Mother Nature.

When the coronavirus epidemic ends and the public health zealots inevitably slap themselves on the back for having prevented their own ridiculous scenarios, don’t buy it. This isn’t to say that thorough hand-washing several times a day and not sneezing and coughing in others’ faces won’t help: It will. But without the authoritarian and economically-devastating measures the U.S. and other countries are taking that are wrecking the world economy, there will be no Apocalypse Now or in the future. The streets are empty not because of direct effects of the disease, but from fear and from government dictates; as in a cognate of “dictatorship.”

Why is the media not reporting the true nature of this corona hoax?

When have the mainstream media ever reported anything that goes counter to the Corporate State and its goals? Take a look at this image and this one to get why our news is skewed.

And please check out this video TIME TO WAKE UP from Dave Cullen who lays out an unassailable case for why this is a gigantic SCAM.


At the “frontline”

Let’s go to someone who is on the “frontline”, former surgeon and practicing GP Dr G. Segura who posted these observations at cassiopaea.org forum in March 2020:

 
Here are more details so people can get an idea of how things work.
.
 
A National Emergency for coronavirus is declared, which changes a few things. So here’s the Primary Health Care scenario:- The entire population is suspect, so no more laboratory tests for coronavirus are done.
 
.

– A “contaminated” respiratory circuit is developed at the clinic, and which is separated from the rest of the outpatients and health staff. Anybody coming with a cough, or who is sneezing or any respiratory sign is derived there and kept separated from those who say have wound or any non-related respiratory illness. That way, contagion is not propagated to the entire clinic, but is kept isolated in the respiratory circuit who has his own specific doctor.

-The electronic bureaucracy is set in place so that those with a respiratory illness and need to stay at home because they are suspect of carrying something, can get an international code related with the coronavirus label, so they can get their appropriate sick leave paperwork and appropriate days of isolation. Remember, no tests are to be done by now because the entire population is suspect due to the declaration of the national emergency alert. The person can have a common cold, could be coughing from a seasonal allergy, or the regular flu… Since it’s a national emergency, it gets labelled as coronavirus related.

– Create a section in the electronic system where all people with doubts regarding the coronavirus or who have respiratory symptoms can make teleconsultations with doctors. Remember, every time a doctor has to write down anything related to a patient’s consultation, he or she has to write an electronic note in their file under a diagnosis. In this case, a new diagnosis has to be created just to write down that you talked with someone in the phone. Because of the national emergency, that label falls under the international codes related with the coronavirus.

What I’m trying to say is that that creates a bunch of coronavirus labelled diagnoses when there was no actual laboratory test done and/or when the respiratory illness could have been anything from the common cold to the typical seasonal flu caused by a non-coronavirus. However, these “coronavirus” labels can now be used for statistical purposes.

As far as hospital care, I don’t do that any more (I hope!). However, I worked in the past in European hospitals and know their systems.

Mark said:
 
I just did my practicum in data science – studied MIMIC hospital admission data. So many patients in hospitals with type 2 diabetes, kidney failure, sepsis, high blood pressure, respiratory failure, heart disease, and many other serious diseases. Some of these patients have been diagnosed with multiple, life-threatening diseases upwards of 20 times per diagnosis. My point is that there is such a thing as ‘”professional patients” and any one of these people could be diagnosed with COV-19 but nevertheless die of some other life-threatening illness – just sayin’. I am not a medical professional, but I think many that are could speak to this phenomenon. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Exactly, which is what Joe is saying:

Joe said:

“Today we registered 627 new deaths. And I want to remind you that these are people who died WITH Coronavirus, not people who died BECAUSE of Coronavirus.”

And therein lies that essence of the problem with the scurrilous, fearmongering BS being proffered about this virus.

Why do you think the speaker stressed that point? Because the vast majority of people who are dying are people with SERIOUS HEALTH CONDITIONS who most likely died due to those serious health conditions, NOT due to Coronavirus.

Why do you think the speaker stressed that point? Because the vast majority of people who are dying are people with SERIOUS HEALTH CONDITIONS who most likely died due to those serious health conditions, NOT due to Coronavirus.

I’ll repeat what I’ve said dozens of times already. Last year in Italy, 43,000 people “died from the flu”. Now, why do you think this wasn’t shouted from the media rooftops at the time? Why were there no “lock downs” in Italy or elsewhere? Why no “pandemic” declared? Why no “self-isolation”?

Because health authorities around the world KNOW VERY WELL that they cannot attribute those 43,000 deaths (or the other ESTIMATED 600,000 deaths EVERY YEAR around the world) to “the flu” because they know that the large majority of people who “die from the flu” every year are the elderly who have one, or two or three existing chronic illnesses, and no responsible health authority would EVER claim that “the flu killed them”.

And yet, this is PRECISELY what health authorities, the media and governments around the world are doing when it comes to coronavirus. WHY?

By the way, on average over the past 10 years, 1,800 people in Italy have died EVERY DAY. There are no statistics that I can find that break that number down, but you can bet that a lot of them occur in winter, and a lot of them are elderly with existing serious health issues.

Exactly!

This is so obvious to me as a practitioner that I find it hard to realize that it needs explaining. It means people really live in a bubble and have no clue as to what real life really looks like in the health care trenches.

Say a 88 years old patient has a fever. He was coughing the days previously. A doctor might find he’s on respiratory failure. In his medical history you find that he has chronic kidney failure (as most elderly do), heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation and hypothyroidism. This is not unusual on someone this age and that’s why a patient like this could be taking 12 medications, including potent blood thinners.

A person such as the above, is likely to be labelled COPD – exacerbation. He or she would be prescribed antibiotics, nebulizations, cortisone, etc. They might test for microbes and find a bacterial infection AND the coronavirus. They will easily find he or she has a urinary tract infection. He or she might have internal bleeding due to the potent blood thinner and its interaction with the antibiotics or any new treatments. If he’s not making progress and his organs start to fail all at once, a call to the ICU might be in order. The ICU doctor might not take him into the ICU because he’s too old. Nevertheless, the patient might get better. Some don’t and die. With so many issues and his age, some will say it was his time to pass away.

European hospitals and clinics are overburdened with patients like this because there are many patients like these. Nevertheless, assistance and a pretty good health care is always provided until the very end. I was often surprised how much Europeans (Italy, Spain) cared about their elderly. Now I got used to it. In other countries, they just don’t bother.

As I said before, ICU doctors always run a filter, so they can have beds for those who don’t have so many diseases piled in one very old body, which basically signals to them that it’s time for this person to pass away. It can happen that health staff get so fixated into treating old patients, that a younger person doesn’t have a ICU bed when is needed, i.e. respiratory distress induced by the flu.

In the example above, and for bureaucratic purposes, each disease and infection found will have its own international code for labelling purposes. First cause of death might be cardiopulmonary arrest and/or multiorgan failure. Second diagnosis might be bacterial infection. The coronavirus label will also have its code for statistical purposes. And that’s where the numbers are coming from. They come from specific international codes used on doctor’s files. It doesn’t mean the coronavirus killed the person. As I said in previous posts, some people have so many diseases, that any banal bug could take them out.

As I understand, only patients that are admitted to the hospital (not even patients consulting the ER and who are sent home) are being tested for the coronavirus. That means the mortality will represent this population, not the general population. Only patients that are in a pretty bad shape get admitted.

From the head of the Italian Superior Institute for Health, we gather the following data (note, the video is one of several that contain all the information):

From the medical records examined so far (not much more than 100), the majority of deaths from covid-19 in Italy have been among the very old. The average age is 80.3 years. The majority of deaths had 3 or more associated serious health issues. Two patients who died did not have any of the most common serious health issues, although other issues may become apparent as further investigation takes place. Just two people under 40 years old have died, both 39 years old, one had cancer and the other one had diabetes, obesity and other health problems prior to the infection.

It bears repeating, this season is not very different from the ones before. Actually, I remember 2016 and 2017 as being particularly bad. Many patients that I was called for a home visit back then were already in respiratory failure and all of them had serious underlying health problems and/or where over 85 years old. A guy was just over 40 years old, but he had Down Syndrome and thus, much older than his biological age.

What has happened with this “pandemic”? We went to seeing from 30 to 40 patients per morning (and I have seen over 60 patients in one morning), to seeing 10 stable patients per morning. Those with diabetes, cancer, heart failure, COPD, etc. have to wait out at home, enclosed, until we get the green light that they can continue with their medical visits and follow ups. Too bad if they catch up the cold or anything from the stress this pandemic is engendering. If they end up in the hospital, they will run the coronavirus test, because after all, it’s pandemic time. In the time being, they are waiting patiently at home and are very understanding of the system that told them to wait at home because it has to deal with more important issues right now.

“I practice Family Medicine in Europe and as everybody knows by now, we’re in the midst of Coronavirus madnessTM which we are told is now an official global pandemic. It’s true that we’re living through a critical, decisive and increasingly divisive era, but the real issue is something other than what the media and politicians would have us believe. Let’s review our society’s problems for some much needed perspective.”

While I might not agree with Dr Erikson on his points about a vaccination programme and more testing, his overall contribution is rational, well-reasoned and sensible.

Against the current hysteria that puts official science to shame: Swiss Propaganda Research: Facts About Covid-19.

Facts from a Swiss Doctor

Here’s a taster (April 12th 2020):

  1. According to data from the best-studied countries such as South Korea, Iceland, Germany and Denmark, the overall lethality of Covid19 is in the lower per mille range and thus up to twenty times lower than initially assumed by the WHO.
  2. A study in Nature Medicine comes to a similar conclusion even for the Chinese city of Wuhan. The initially significantly higher values for Wuhan were obtained because a many people with mild or no symptoms were not recorded.
  3. 50% to 80% of test-positive individuals remain symptom-free. Even among the 70 to 79 year old persons about 60% remain symptom-free, many more show only mild symptoms.
  4. The median age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years and only about 1% of the deceased had no serious previous illnesses. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially corresponds to normal mortality.
  5. Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid19 have proven to be false upon closer inspection. Many of these people either did not die from Covid19 or they in fact had serious preconditions (such as undiagnosed leukaemia).
  6. Normal overall mortality in the US is about 8000 people per day, in Germany about 2600 people and in Italy about 1800 people per day. Influenza mortality in the US is up to 80,000, in Germany and Italy up to 25,000, and in Switzerland up to 1500 people per winter.
  7. Strongly increased death rates, as in northern Italy, can be influenced by additional risk factors such as very high air pollution and legionella contamination, as well as a collapse in the care of the elderly and sick due to infections, mass panic and lockdown.
  8. In countries such as Italy and Spain, and to some extent Great Britain and the US, a serious overload of hospitals, notably by the flu, is not unusual.In addition, up to 15% of doctors and nurses currently have to self-quarantine, even if they develop no symptoms.
  9. An important distinction concerns the question of whether people die with or indeed from coronaviruses. Autopsies show that in many cases the previous illnesses were an important or decisive factor, but the official figures usually do not reflect this.
  10. Thus in order to assess the danger of the disease, the key indicator is not the often mentioned number of test-positive persons and deceased, but the number of persons who actually and unexpectedly develop or die of pneumonia.
  11. The often shown exponential curves of “corona cases” are misleading, since the number of tests also increases exponentially. In most countries, the ratio of positive tests to total tests either remains constant between 5% to 15% or increases only very slowly.
  12. Countries without lockdowns and contact bans, such as Japan, South Korea and Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events than other countries. This might call into question the effectiveness of such far-reaching measures.
  13. According to leading lung specialists, invasive ventilation of Covid19 patients is often counterproductive and causes additional damage to the lungs. The invasive ventilation of Covid19 patients is partly done out of fear of spreading the virus through aerosols.
  14. Contrary to original assumptions, however, the WHO determined at the end of March that there is no evidence of aerosol dispersal of the virus. A leading German virologist also found no aerosol and no smear infections in a pilot study.
  15. Many clinics in Europe and the US have been lacking patients and some have had to introduce short-time work. Numerous operations and therapies were cancelled by clinics, even emergency patients sometimes stay at home out of fear of the virus.
  16. Several media have been caught trying to dramatize the situation in clinics, sometimes even with manipulative pictures and videos. In general, many media outlets do not question even doubtful official statements and figures.
  17. The virus test kits used internationally are prone to errors. Several studies have shown that even normal corona viruses can give a false positive result. Moreover, the virus test currently in use has not been clinically validated due to time pressure.
  18. Numerous internationally renowned experts from the fields of virology, immunology and epidemiology consider the measures taken to be counterproductive and recommend a rapid natural immunisation of the general population while protecting risk groups.
  19. The number of people suffering from unemployment, psychological problems and domestic violence as a result of the measures taken has exploded in the US and worldwide. Several experts believe that the measures may claim more lives than the virus itself.
  20. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the corona crisis is used for the massive and permanent expansion of global surveillance. The renowned virologist Pablo Goldschmidt spoke of a “global media terror” and “totalitarian measures”. Leading British virologist Professor John Oxford spoke of a “media epidemic”.

Facts from a Swedish Epidemiologist

A great interview with a Swedish expert from unherd.com/:

Professor Johan Giesecke, one of the world’s most senior epidemiologists, advisor to the Swedish Government (he hired Anders Tegnell who is currently directing Swedish strategy), the first Chief Scientist of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and an advisor to the director general of the WHO, lays out with typically Swedish bluntness why he thinks:

  • UK policy on lockdown and other European countries are not evidence-based

  • The correct policy is to protect the old and the frail only

  • This will eventually lead to herd immunity as a “by-product”

  • The initial UK response, before the “180 degree U-turn”, was better

  • The Imperial College paper was “not very good” and he has never seen an unpublished paper have so much policy impact

  • The paper was very much too pessimistic

  • Any such models are a dubious basis for public policy anyway

  • The flattening of the curve is due to the most vulnerable dying first as much as the lockdown

  • The results will eventually be similar for all countries

  • Covid-19 is a “mild disease” and similar to the flu, and it was the novelty of the disease that scared people.

  • The actual fatality rate of Covid-19 is the region of 0.1%

  • At least 50% of the population of both the UK and Sweden will be shown to have already had the disease when mass antibody testing becomes available

The imperial College paper was the most cited source of so-called science and if you listen to the above interview you’ll see how how bad it is. Epidemiologist Professor Neil Ferguson and his team at Imperial College, London, released  “Impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) to reduce COVID-19 mortality and health care demand”

Ferguson’s modelling and science that told the government that it would be facing 500,000 deaths. But the modelling/programming was amateurish and based on faulty data.

Ferguson is the same Government coronavirus adviser who quit in May after home visits from his married lover

You think this guy was concerned about covid-19?? This is the man responsible for advising the government on lock down measures.

He KNOWS its all garbage.

Scientist Behind “Lockdown” Doesn’t Actually Believe In, Or Abide By, His Own Fear Porn Advice

He’s also the same guy who received $79 million from Bill Gates to extend his computer modelling for new vaccines. Oh, he happens to have no papers to show regarding how he produced the numbers that sent the world into an oppressive tail-spin.


Back in the UK, the result of all this has hysteria has been to make the UK National Health Service a COVID only service. People are being denied real care and staying away in droves. And if and when they do become registered with COVID they are then put on a ventilator which will likely kill you due to this equipment being entirely the wrong method for tackling the disease which is primarily respiratory. furthermore:

“It is now clear that the whole world has been attacking the so-called Coronavirus Pandemic wrongly due to a serious pathophysiological diagnosis error. According to valuable information from Italian pathologists, ventilators and intensive care units were never needed. Autopsies performed by the Italian pathologists has shown that it is not pneumonia but it is Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Thrombosis) which ought to be fought with antibiotics, antivirals, anti-inflammatories and anticoagulants.” – Discovery: Autopsies Prove that COVID-19 is a Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Pulmonary Thrombosis)

Oops.

Meanwhile, thanks to face masks and lock downs our immune systems are being made more fragile and people who need it most are being denied proper care, all of which means disease WILL go through the roof when we do start to mingle again. Which means new phases of lock down will be implemented ad infinitum…

See the pattern?

I hate to use anything from the BBC but this chart says it all:

Which leads to: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in community unrelated to COVID-19 because people are not getting access to care


Let’s get some more science in and go to an interview with one of the top experts in infectious diseases in the world:

Didier Raoult on the coronavirus: “We must not play with fear”

Interview by Brice Perrier | Original article in French

A world leader in the field of infectious diseases and member of the scientific council dedicated to the coronavirus, Didier Raoult fears the runaway against a coronavirus which he has been inviting for weeks to treat.

Director of the Mediterranean Infection Institute in Marseille, Professor Didier Raoult is one of the most recognized French infectious diseases specialists in the world. He notably joined the multidisciplinary committee of 11 experts formed in March by the executive, assembled to “enlighten public decision in the management of the health situation linked to the coronavirus”.

But in this crisis, he believes he is little heard by French health authorities when he is conducting a clinical trial on an old antimalarial drug used in China against Covid-19. Faced with the reality of the epidemic, he recommends not to panic and to detect the patients without waiting for their case to get worse to better treat them.

Marianne: What does the evolution of the coronavirus epidemic inspire in you?

Didier Raoult: I don’t let myself get into terror. I do not know how to guess the future and I am not used to believe the most excited who have always been wrong in their modeling. I analyze from day to day, and the evolution, today, it is some 6,000 deaths in the world, including approximately 3,500 in China where the epidemic ends, and 127 in France. I am surprised that we are talking about a very significant cause of mortality, and even a health crisis of the century, when in 2017 the flu and other respiratory infections killed between 14,000 and 20,000 people in France. Maybe the statistics will be very different at the end of the epidemic, but today I do not see a major problem in terms of mortality.

We can only test this mortality if we integrate forms that are not very symptomatic

As a scientist, I am interested in what is done in the world to analyze the solutions associated with the best results. Most countries had not taken the type of decision announced by France, except Italy with not very remarkable success. Germany did not make this choice, neither did South Korea, although it was hit hard. In China, only the Wuhan region has been quarantined, where there have been 2,500 deaths, while the virus has been everywhere else. But mortality has not spread. We are taking measures that have nothing to do with those of countries that have controlled the epidemic. Maybe it’s a stroke of genius, or not. It is especially important to reduce things to their proportion, because the interpretation that one gives ends up completely biasing the vision.

Isn’t this virus particularly contagious and dangerous?

Dangerousness, I don’t know what that means. It depends on the sample we observe. We can look in South Korea where we have done what I advocate from the start, namely to detect and treat, or in the greatest madness carried out in Japan by wedging elderly people on a cruise ship, an experimental model equivalent to putting together twenty mice including four infected to see how many will be contaminated. In both cases, mortality was relatively low, and in Korea it was one of the lowest in the world. In our center in Marseille, the only fatal case arrived after wandering from hospital to hospital. An 89-year-old lady who had been in intensive care for ten days when she was diagnosed. Mortality will obviously be higher for people identified in intensive care than with early detection. It will depend on the quality of care, and we can only test this mortality if we integrate mild symptoms.

In China, suicides of anguished people are reported

We have undoubtedly carried out more tests of the coronavirus than all the other French laboratories combined, with both moderate and severe forms. PACA [Southeastern France] may be spared with just one death, but that would prove that the generalizations are wrong. The ecosystems are different between inner Paris, Wuhan, the PACA region, and there is the unmeasurable risk because chaotic super-contaminators, difficult to understand. We still know now how to measure viral loads and we see that people have quantities of virus a million times greater than others. Logically, this can play a role in contamination, along with other things like behavior. The fact remains that today most of our patients come for respiratory symptoms due to the twenty or so other viruses circulating, or because they met someone who had the coronavirus. They are frantic and want to know if they don’t have something that will kill them. Fear is very contagious. In China, suicides of anxious people have been reported. Do not play with fear.

Do you think we’re getting carried away dangerously?

Yes. What are the practical details? In 2019, there were 2.6 million deaths worldwide from acute respiratory infection. In your opinion, what influence will the coronavirus have in this? Before significantly modifying these statistics, he will have to kill a lot … And who knows if it will not stop overnight without knowing why like SARS, or if we be will finished with it in March, as is usual with the flu. All this means that I am not particularly moved, and think above all of detecting and treating.

You are conducting a clinical trial of treatment with chloroquine. Do you have any initial results?

I will present them this week, but will not invent anything. Dr. Zhong Nanshan, who successfully managed the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, has shown that chloroquine improves the clinical picture. In Saudi Arabia, the country where there has been the most coronavirus in recent years, Ziad Memish also recommends it as a basic treatment. These two scientists are the best in the world for treating coronaviruses, but in France, perhaps because one is Chinese and the other Arab, we don’t listen to them. In South Korea, chloroquine is also in the official protocol, as in Iran.

Coronaviruses come from these countries and those who offer this product know them. I transmit things that others should also transmit if they read, followed what is done abroad and realized that the Chinese have become the largest producers of science in the world. I am only doing a confirmatory study at the level of viral load, the only element really measurable today, except to include thousands of people for analyzes which will arrive in several months, without immediate result.

Viral load, on the other hand, is easy to watch and answers the essential question of transmissibility. Its average duration is 12 to 14 days, and Doctor Zhong has already shown that chloroquine reduces the persistence of the virus to four days. Among all the products tested, it is the most harmless in terms of side effects, the cheapest, and it has at least partially shown its effectiveness. Good news to announce. This will have an effect, including in a population where one can fear dying from something that cannot be treated. I don’t understand why we don’t use it. It’s weird at a time when we keep talking about globalization. In France we’re asked to provide results already found elsewhere.

Your statements about chloroquine have been labeled “fake news”

At the end of February, I made a video in which I presented the Chinese results. It was posted and shared on Facebook, which qualified it as “fake news” after advice from a World decoder. The Ministry of Health website then posted that I was spreading fake news, but quickly removed it. And two weeks later, the ministry asked me to enter the scientific council dedicated to the coronavirus …

Are you heard there?

I say what I think, but the council does not translate it into action. It’s called scientific advice, but it’s political. I’m like an alien there.

[end]

The stance of the authorities is diametrically opposed to this world renowned expert. He repeatedly stated that the coronavirus is just a mild flu, that chloroquine was an effective drug and that testing should be done systematically. He was ignored. Why? As a result, Raoult left the coronavirus scientific council on March 25th, sick of their refusals to apply proper scientific measures and protocols.’ And even if COVID-19 isn’t mild and its a nasty respiratory version of seasonal influenza, does it justify global lockdowns?

Raoult isn’t alone. There are other academics and professionals voicing their concerns.


Journeyman Pictures have made an excellent series on the science behind the fake pandemic in a series of interviews with Dr. John Ioannidis, Professor Knut Wittkowski and others. These too, were removed by YouTube which is conducting a censorship campaign infringing freedom of speech and pushing government pseudo-science. This is clear evidence that true science and investigative journalism is under threat from the tech giants.


More Scientists Speak Out

From an article by OffGuardian they present “twelve medical experts whose opinions on the Coronavirus outbreak contradict the official narratives of the MSM, and the memes so prevalent on social media.”

Here they all are…Strap yourself in:

Dr Sucharit Bhakdi is a specialist in microbiology. He was a professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene and one of the most cited research scientists in German history.

What he says:

We are afraid that 1 million infections with the new virus will lead to 30 deaths per day over the next 100 days. But we do not realise that 20, 30, 40 or 100 patients positive for normal coronaviruses are already dying every day.

[The government’s anti-COVID19 measures] are grotesque, absurd and very dangerous […] The life expectancy of millions is being shortened. The horrifying impact on the world economy threatens the existence of countless people. The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients in need are reduced, operations cancelled, practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling. All this will impact profoundly on our whole society.

All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide based on nothing but a spook.

Dr Wolfgang Wodarg is a German physician specialising in Pulmonology, politician and former chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. In 2009 he called for an inquiry into alleged conflicts of interest surrounding the EU response to the Swine Flu pandemic.

What he says:

Politicians are being courted by scientists…scientists who want to be important to get money for their institutions. Scientists who just swim along in the mainstream and want their part of it […] And what is missing right now is a rational way of looking at things.

We should be asking questions like “How did you find out this virus was dangerous?”, “How was it before?”, “Didn’t we have the same thing last year?”, “Is it even something new?”

That’s missing.

Dr Joel Kettner is professor of Community Health Sciences and Surgery at Manitoba University, former Chief Public Health Officer for Manitoba province and Medical Director of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases.

What he says:

I have never seen anything like this, anything anywhere near like this. I’m not talking about the pandemic, because I’ve seen 30 of them, one every year. It is called influenza. And other respiratory illness viruses, we don’t always know what they are. But I’ve never seen this reaction, and I’m trying to understand why.

original article

Dr John Ioannidis Professor of Medicine, of Health Research and Policy and of Biomedical Data Science, at Stanford University School of Medicine and a Professor of Statistics at Stanford University School of Humanities and Sciences. He is director of the Stanford Prevention Research Center, and co-director of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS).

He is also the editor-in-chief of the European Journal of Clinical Investigation. He was chairman at the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology, University of Ioannina School of Medicine as well as adjunct professor at Tufts University School of Medicine.

As a physician, scientist and author he has made contributions to evidence-based medicine, epidemiology, data science and clinical research. In addition, he pioneered the field of meta-research. He has shown that much of the published research does not meet good scientific standards of evidence.

What he says:

Patients who have been tested for SARS-CoV-2 are disproportionately those with severe symptoms and bad outcomes. As most health systems have limited testing capacity, selection bias may even worsen in the near future.

The one situation where an entire, closed population was tested was the Diamond Princess cruise ship and its quarantine passengers. The case fatality rate there was 1.0%, but this was a largely elderly population, in which the death rate from Covid-19 is much higher.

[…]

Could the Covid-19 case fatality rate be that low? No, some say, pointing to the high rate in elderly people. However, even some so-called mild or common-cold-type coronaviruses that have been known for decades can have case fatality rates as high as 8% when they infect elderly people in nursing homes.

[…]

If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR tests, the number of total deaths due to “influenza-like illness” would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average.

– “A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data”, Stat News, 17th March 2020

The original article: A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data

Dr Yoram Lass is an Israeli physician, politician and former Director General of the Health Ministry. He also worked as Associate Dean of the Tel Aviv University Medical School and during the 1980s presented the science-based television show Tatzpit.

What he says:

Italy is known for its enormous morbidity in respiratory problems, more than three times any other European country. In the US about 40,000 people die in a regular flu season and so far 40-50 people have died of the coronavirus, most of them in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington.

[…]

In every country, more people die from regular flu compared with those who die from the coronavirus.

[…]

…there is a very good example that we all forget: the swine flu in 2009. That was a virus that reached the world from Mexico and until today there is no vaccination against it. But what? At that time there was no Facebook or there maybe was but it was still in its infancy. The coronavirus, in contrast, is a virus with public relations.

Whoever thinks that governments end viruses is wrong.

– Interview in Globes, March 22nd 2020

Dr Pietro Vernazza is a Swiss physician specialising Infectious Diseases at the Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen and Professor of Health Policy.

What he says:

We have reliable figures from Italy and a work by epidemiologists, which has been published in the renowned science journal Science, which examined the spread in China. This makes it clear that around 85 percent of all infections have occurred without anyone noticing the infection. 90 percent of the deceased patients are verifiably over 70 years old, 50 percent over 80 years.

[…]

In Italy, one in ten people diagnosed die, according to the findings of the Science publication, that is statistically one of every 1,000 people infected. Each individual case is tragic, but often – similar to the flu season – it affects people who are at the end of their lives.

[…]

If we close the schools, we will prevent the children from quickly becoming immune.

– Interview in St. Galler Tagblatt, 22nd March 2020

Prof. Hendrik Streeck is a German HIV researcher, epidemiologist and clinical trialist. He is professor of virology, and the director of the Institute of Virology and HIV Research, at Bonn University.

What he says:

The new pathogen is not that dangerous, it is even less dangerous than Sars-1. The special thing is that Sars-CoV-2 replicates in the upper throat area and is therefore much more infectious because the virus jumps from throat to throat, so to speak. But that is also an advantage: Because Sars-1 replicates in the deep lungs, it is not so infectious, but it definitely gets on the lungs, which makes it more dangerous.

[…]

You also have to take into account that the Sars-CoV-2 deaths in Germany were exclusively old people. In Heinsberg, for example, a 78-year-old man with previous illnesses died of heart failure, and that without Sars-2 lung involvement. Since he was infected, he naturally appears in the Covid 19 statistics. But the question is whether he would not have died anyway, even without Sars-2.

– Interview in Frankfurter Allgemeine, 16th March 2020

Dr Yanis Roussel et. al. – A team of researchers from the Institut Hospitalo-universitaire Méditerranée Infection, Marseille and the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille, conducting a peer-reviewed study on Coronavirus mortality for the government of France under the ‘Investments for the Future’ programme.

What they say:

The problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably overestimated, as 2.6 million people die of respiratory infections each year compared with less than 4000 deaths for SARS-CoV-2 at the time of writing.

[…]

This study compared the mortality rate of SARS-CoV-2 in OECD countries (1.3%) with the mortality rate of common coronaviruses identified in AP-HM patients (0.8%) from 1 January 2013 to 2 March 2020. Chi-squared test was performed, and the P-value was 0.11 (not significant).

[…]

…it should be noted that systematic studies of other coronaviruses (but not yet for SARS-CoV-2) have found that the percentage of asymptomatic carriers is equal to or even higher than the percentage of symptomatic patients. The same data for SARS-CoV-2 may soon be available, which will further reduce the relative risk associated with this specific pathology.

– “SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data”, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, 19th March 2020

Dr. David Katz is an American physician and founding director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center

What he says:

I am deeply concerned that the social, economic and public health consequences of this near-total meltdown of normal life — schools and businesses closed, gatherings banned — will be long-lasting and calamitous, possibly graver than the direct toll of the virus itself. The stock market will bounce back in time, but many businesses never will. The unemployment, impoverishment and despair likely to result will be public health scourges of the first order.

– “Is Our Fight Against Coronavirus Worse Than the Disease?”, New York Times 20th March 2020

Michael T. Osterholm is regents professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

What he says:

Consider the effect of shutting down offices, schools, transportation systems, restaurants, hotels, stores, theaters, concert halls, sporting events and other venues indefinitely and leaving all of their workers unemployed and on the public dole. The likely result would be not just a depression but a complete economic breakdown, with countless permanently lost jobs, long before a vaccine is ready or natural immunity takes hold.

[…]

[T]he best alternative will probably entail letting those at low risk for serious disease continue to work, keep business and manufacturing operating, and “run” society, while at the same time advising higher-risk individuals to protect themselves through physical distancing and ramping up our health-care capacity as aggressively as possible. With this battle plan, we could gradually build up immunity without destroying the financial structure on which our lives are based.

– “Facing covid-19 reality: A national lockdown is no cure”, Washington Post 21st March 2020
Dr Peter Goetzsche is Professor of Clinical Research Design and Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and founder of the Cochrane Medical Collaboration. He has written several books on corruption in the field of medicine and the power of big pharmaceutical companies.

What he says:

Our main problem is that no one will ever get in trouble for measures that are too draconian. They will only get in trouble if they do too little. So, our politicians and those working with public health do much more than they should do.

No such draconian measures were applied during the 2009 influenza pandemic, and they obviously cannot be applied every winter, which is all year round, as it is always winter somewhere. We cannot close down the whole world permanently.

Should it turn out that the epidemic wanes before long, there will be a queue of people wanting to take credit for this. And we can be damned sure draconian measures will be applied again next time. But remember the joke about tigers. “Why do you blow the horn?” “To keep the tigers away.” “But there are no tigers here.” “There you see!”

Connecting the Dots Part 2 By Dave Cullen (April 19th 2020)

The following video is with molecular geneticist and immunologist Prof. Dolores Cahill which was also taken down by YouTube.

MUST WATCH: Debunking the Narrative (With Prof. Dolores Cahill) (May 11th 2020)

The cure is worse than the disease.

Why are a consortium of Establishment figures perpetrating this scam?

Multiple benefits. Let’s press on… Next stop Germany, May 30th.

An article by Daniele Pozzati for Strategic Culture Foundation goes as follows:

“Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

Some of the report key passages are:

  • The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
  • The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).
  • Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
  • The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
  • A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

So far, so bad. But it gets worse.

The report focuses on the ‘manifold and heavy consequences of the Corona measures’ and warns that these are ‘grave’.

More people are dying because of state-imposed Corona-measures than they are being killed by the virus.”

The reason is a scandal in the making:

A Corona-focused German healthcare system is postponing life-saving surgery and delaying or reducing treatment for non-Corona patients.

Bill Gates

And if you’d like to know what’s IN this super vaccine that will save us all, how about untested Genetically Modified Organisms:

Bill Gates told an audience in Brussels, Belgium that he is taking “genetically modified organisms” and “injecting them right into little kid’s arms“, in a recently surfaced shock video.

We are taking things that are, uh, you know, genetically modified organisms and injecting them into little kid’s arms,” said Gates in January 2015, before adding, “we just shoot ’em right into the vein.

So yeah I think maybe we should have a safety system where we do trials and test things out,” continued Gates.

According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who shared a version of the video on Instagram last week, Gates is unqualified to “dictate vaccine policy to 7 billion humans.”

Punchline: He considers himself competent to dictate vaccine policy to 7 billion humans, AND he believes vaccines are inter-venous medications. Finally, he admits he’s injecting us with GMOS. Number of studies indicating that is safe? ZERO!

Bill Gates “landed the job of dictating world health policy with no election, no appointment, no oversight and no accountability”says Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is demanding to know how and why this happened, adding “Does anybody else think this is creepy?

Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vac ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control over global health policy—the spear tip of corporate neo-imperialism,” Kennedy Jr. wrote.

Gates’ obsession with vaccines seems fueled by a messianic conviction that he is ordained to save the world with technology and a god-like willingness to experiment with the lives of lesser humans.”

Is this really sensible or even desirable? Who the hell is this guy and why is he leading the charge to vaccinate every human on this earth?

If you aren’t aware of who Bill Gates is and his fanatical agenda for global vaccination then take a look at this series of videos by James Corbett:

HOW BILL GATES MONOPOLIZED GLOBAL HEALTH

TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: www.corbettreport.com/gates

“Who is Bill Gates? A software developer? A businessman? A philanthropist? A global health expert? This question, once merely academic, is becoming a very real question for those who are beginning to realize that Gates’ unimaginable wealth has been used to gain control over every corner of the fields of public health, medical research and vaccine development. And now that we are presented with the very problem that Gates has been talking about for years, we will soon find that this software developer with no medical training is going to leverage that wealth into control over the fates of billions of people.”

BILL GATES’ PLAN TO VACCINATE THE WORLD

TRANSCRIPT AND DOWNLOAD: www.corbettreport.com/gates

“In January of 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates announced a $10 billion pledge to usher in a decade of vaccines. But far from an unalloyed good, the truth is that this attempt to reorient the global health economy was part of a much bigger agenda. An agenda that would ultimately lead to greater profits for big pharma companies, greater control for the Gates Foundation over the field of global health, and greater power for Bill Gates to shape the course of the future for billions of people around the planet.”

BILL GATES AND THE POPULATION CONTROL GRID

TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: https://www.corbettreport.com/gates

“The takeover of public health that we have documented in How Bill Gates Monopolized Global Health and the remarkably brazen push to vaccinate everyone on the planet that we have documented in Bill Gates’ Plan to Vaccinate the World was not, at base, about money. The unimaginable wealth that Gates has accrued is now being used to purchase something much more useful: control. Control not just of the global health bodies that can coordinate a worldwide vaccination program, or the governments that will mandate such an unprecedented campaign, but control over the global population itself.”

MEET BILL GATES

TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: www.corbettreport.com/gates

“There can be no doubt that Bill Gates has worn many hats on his remarkable journey from his early life as the privileged son of a Seattle-area power couple to his current status as one of the richest and most influential people on the planet. But, as we have seen in our exploration of Gates’ rise as unelected global health czar and population control advocate, the question of who Bill Gates really is is no mere philosophical pursuit. Today we will attempt to answer that question as we examine the motives, the ideology, and the connections of this man who has been so instrumental in shaping the post-coronavirus world.”


Note: And if  you think that the power of Big Pharma in concert with government agencies wouldn’t stoop to getting rid of people if they need to – think again. The latest person to be taken out is former Merck employee and ‘Learn The Risk’ Founder Brandy Vaughan. Her death is extremely suspicious for a host of reasons which are detailed in a report by her friend Erin Elizabeth. 


Biongineering, China, present-future predictions

By over-inflating the number of coronavirus deaths and initiating indoctrination of “social isolation”, “social distancing” “quarantine shaming” and other such jargon, a consortium of interests hope to implement drastic control measures. Once enforced, they will be nigh on impossible to reverse. (This will include the exclusion of a systematic test that would reveal that 99.9% of the statistics given for the dead were not even carrying the coronavirus).

This is not a pandemic nor will it ever be, unless we use the same unquestioning logic that prompts us to bulk-buy on supermarket toilet paper, clear out the meat counter or to believe that the government has a sudden miraculous money supply to keep some small businesses afloat while shouldering a £2 trillion debt.

They’re printing money again out of thin air just as they did prior to the last recession in order to push through self-serving socio-economic measures that they couldn’t possibly do without a convenient “crisis.”

As former White House Chief of Staff for Obama once said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. … it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” And he wasn’t talking about the milk of human kindness, but milking people’s minds to focus on the chaos, a diversionary tactic that relies on fear and a misplaced trust in the authorities. Meanwhile, they stripped our assets, broke our social infrastructure, bailed out the banks and got us to pay for it all!

It was only a few weeks ago that the media was fretting about the 10,000 deaths from flu and there were no lock-downs and collective hissy fits then.

So, what changed?

Over to Professor Michel Chossudovsky:

“What these [lockdown] measures are doing is literally liquidating small and medium-sized capital to the benefit of big business and big corporations. Don’t believe what the government is telling you … This is not a dangerous infection if addressed by the relevant health authorities [as you would normal flu] but what is dangerous is the collapse of the economy … which is leading to global impoverishment in both the western countries as well as the developing countries”

— Michel Chossudovsky 

While 36 million Americans have filed for unemployment support US billionaires have made a killing seeing their wealth rebound by $282 billion according to the Institute of Policy Studies. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon is well on his way to being the world’s first trillionaire due to this plandemic.

A record wealth gap before the crisis has now become deeper and wider.

The same old story.

New distractions always need to be cooked up when you are seeking to implement major socio-economic re-structuring. Taking advantage of China’s outbreak certainly fits the bill – all sorts of cool things can be undertaken under the cover of “pandemic” as we will discover when this “blows, over.” But believe me, when it comes to the economic reset, this is not going to be just another crash…

Don’t think that the COVID Plandemic and the recent fake revolution riots in America are all part of the bid to reset the global markets?

Well, take a look at the recent World Economic Forum article by its chairman appropriately titled: “Now Is The Time For a ‘Great Reset’.”

Of course it is! So, glad we could all get with the program and dutifully do as we are told….

Keep in mind that there is a lot of anti-China propaganda out there that is part of the new Cold War 2.0 scenario to blame China, Russia and Iran for pretty much everything. Don’t believe it. This strain of flu appears to have been the result of bioengineering strains that were hanging around for the last 2 years, the mutated forms of which were then shipped off to China care of factions within US military intelligence. (No, we didn’t get it from bats – this is misinformation). The illness comes from infection by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and shipped out to China.

If you think that our beloved Anglo-American crazy scientists haven’t been messing around with biowarfare then you need to review. With US bio-labs dotted around the world, it’s sexy stuff for these guys and they’ve been peering into their petri-dishes to create a deadly flu virus for quite some time.

Journalist Ben Swann has even found clear evidence that the Corona Virus is not a virus that occurs naturally in nature in its present form, rather it was altered in a Lab in order to better attach to humans.

Here’s the video:

And here are a few more supporting links for your edification:

Ancestral type of COVID-19 virus mainly found in the US: study

“Recent research conducted into the genetic network analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic, done jointly by British and German experts, testified the variant of novel coronavirus that is closest to that discovered in bats was actually found mainly among cases from the US, rather than in Wuhan, Central China’s Hubei Province.”

But it’s lethality may not lie in the fact that it causes death but what it does to the DNA…. It seems this experimentation has resulted in something not so serious for us, but quite threatening for our illustrious leaders which is the real reason for the lockdowns. (Huh?) More on this later.

So, what does all this global lockdown hoopla mean for us all when everything goes back to normal?

Er… Well, it means it won’t. And that’s the point.

These restrictions in some form or another – diluted, buffered and rationalised – are here to stay.

Don’t you know there could be a “second wave”?? Listen to Daddy State and he’ll make it aaaall better.

The problem is the global lock downs are unjustified on medical grounds alone. Look at this graph from UK COLUMN:

Click on graph to enlarge

Here are some of the changes that have taken place –  in particular for the US – and what may be coming down the pipeline from One World Press:

New World (Dis)order

De-Facto Martial Law…

There’s no other way to describe both the “recommended” and mandatory quarantines that many in the world are experiencing than to call them what they are, a state of de-facto martial law, which isn’t being formally declared in order to not provoke any more panic than there already is.

* ...Is The “New Normal”

Now that de-facto martial law of a seemingly indefinite period has been accepted by the people (whether willingly or begrudgingly), it’ll probably become the “new normal” and be implemented countless times in the future, be it as an “overabundance of caution” in the event of another outbreak or under any other pretext.

Social Media Censorship Will Intensify

“Big Brother” is already here, but he’s going to become a bigger bully than ever before by intensifying his censorship of people’s social media posts on the basis that they’re “socially irresponsible” (e.g. questioning the seriousness of this disease), after which the “politically incorrect” net will widen to encompass other topics too.

Travel Will Never Be The Same Again

Domestic and international travel will never be the same again, with internal restrictions on movement likely becoming commonplace and most foreign guests being required to self-quarantine for a period of time except in special circumstances, thus all but killing the global tourism industry.

Border Control Will Become More Robust

Gone are the days of so-called “open borders” where anyone can freely move between jurisdictions at will (whether legally or otherwise), with more stringent controls being put into place to protect the local population from outsiders (including their own compatriots from elsewhere in the country).

Mandatory Vaccines Are Coming

For whatever one thinks about vaccines, there’s probably no way to stop them from becoming mandatory after the COVID-19 pandemic, with it being predicted that people will have to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to do anything at all such as study, work, travel, and receive government benefits.

Remote Learning & Working Will Increase

With so many people stuck at home and unable to leave except to purchase essential goods in most cases, it’s predictable that remote learning and working (the latter which will of course be for those whose jobs allow them to do so) will pick up in the coming future as society gets used to this way of doing things.

* 5G Is Inevitable

The massive surge of online traffic from folks who are learning, working, or simply entertaining themselves online will necessitate the rapid roll-out of 5G technology despite what some people suspect are its serious health concerns.

[Note: 5G is bad news for our health and it will play a large part in the envisioned SMART infrastructure however…Keep this in mind:

Society Depends On Just A Few Jobs To Function

The “new normal” of de-facto martial law has made many people realize that society really just depends on a few jobs in order to continue functioning at the bare minimum, with these being techies, grocery store and pharmacy employees, bank clerks, healthcare professionals, food service workers, farmers, and truckers.

Nationalization Might Be Imminent

For better or for worse, governments across the world might go on a nationalization spree in order to take control of what they regard as “essential industries” (though whether some of them truly are or not is another story), which could lead to the informal imposition of either socialist or fascist economic models.

Universal Basic Income

Given the scale and scope of the global economic collapse that was catalyzed by the world’s uncoordinated response to COVID-19, it’s foreseeable that governments will unveil what’s been described as a “universal basic income” in order to ensure that their people can continue to at least purchase basic goods and services.

Mandatory Medical Training In Exchange For Government Benefits

Medical training is arguably more important than military service nowadays, so the state will probably make it mandatory in schools from here on out and for anyone who wants to receive government benefits, thereby enabling the government to draft them in the future whenever there’s a dearth of healthcare professionals.

Say Goodbye To Cash

The cashless society is coming, whether justified by the (real, false, or exaggerated) fear that lethal viruses can be spread by paper currency or as the government’s preferred method of dispersing its “universal basic income”, meaning that the authorities can cut folks off from their funds at any time that they want to.

We might add to the above that our beloved leaders will add a second wave outbreak…Or maybe a third, fourth or fifth? In fact, they can do as many as they like to keep populations in line.

And since everyone’s immune systems will be out of kilter due to quarantining the likelihood of REAL diseases getting out of control is a very real possibility…

So they want you to get on that vaccination train and are prepared to enact some rather draconian measures prior to rolling it out – can’t have the public questioning such insanity….

Welcome to the Police State

From using acts of terror to keep the populations compliant they have simply exchanged one system of control with another.

Remember this?

And we compare this with the juvenile nonsense from Prime Minister Boris Johnson address to the nation which included the new system:

This is pure manipulation, talking to us like children, a standard protocol for psychological warfare.

The result?

FEAR.

Mass fear and ignorance is necessary to implement the various social and economic changes that lie ahead.

Which begs the question: In what sense do you think we are free?

Sweden has resisted the lockdowns and the country doesn’t appear to have gone extinct….In fact, the numbers are going down. Sweden enacted the world’s sanest ‘pandemic’ response policy and it’s paying off.

Ankle trackers, beatings and spy drones: Welcome to the COVID-19 surveillance state Stasi

This is a form of collective insanity foisted on us by a consortium of interests and the vast proportion of the populace are buying into it. This has to change if we are to inhabit a world that allows any freedom of thought. You can bet you bottom dollar this is the beginning of the end of at least the semblance of democracy if you allow yourself to be intimidated.

The more fear is generated the easier it is to belive the LIE.

While the cause and lethality of the virus is fabricated there are signs of a deep willingness to pull together from many people in the face of a perceived crisis. It’s just a shame that such altrusim is largely a response to manipulation. On the other side of the fence, there are those who are so fearful and ignorant that they fit the profile of authoritarian followers. These are the new “Covid-Stasi” who easily slip into snitching on their neighbours – who dare to break the “rules,” or the bureaucrats and police who level fines on the public who do not comply. One state in the US has resorted to imposing ankle bracelets on those who do not comply with covid-19 rules….And another have these gestapo-type “COVID-19 Public Health Order Non-Compliance Reporting Form.”

In case you don’t get it yet…This isn’t about protecting you.

It’s about ensuring you obey.

Who Controls The British Government Response to COVID-19?

Sott.net comments:

“It’s clear, seeing as most national governments effectively fled their roles as governors in March, that ‘some rough beast’ now rules in their stead. Through this manufactured crisis, the ‘One World Govt’ has publicly heralded its arrival – and its intention to reshape and rule our world, in perpetuity.

When the president of the United States of America – despite initially stating, correctly, that he believes this pandemic to be blown way out of proportion to its alleged fatality – has no choice but to yield, and when the leader of the second-largest nation in the Western hemisphere is personally attending rallies against the lockdown, it is clear that democracy is dead and totalitarian world order has taken over.”

Coronavirus: You Have Given Your Freedom Away Don’t Abandon Critical Thinking Too

So, what now?

Some or all of the above may materialize. But you can be sure that the life we managed to pretend was “business as usual” is finished.

The question now becomes: how can we meet the unknown with courage and pragmatism so that we can ride out the changes without being sucked down the plug-hole of chaos?

If you are one of those who is skeptical of knee-jerk conspiratorial thinking where shadows are seen under every stone, then well done. That’s never a healthy thing. It is equally unhealthy however, to place your trust in the sanctity of the State and its agencies and pretend they have your best interests at heart. This is even more foolish because it is predicated on the idea that those in power care two hoots about you. They do not. Until you disavow yourself from that belief then your mind will be easy prey for their propaganda. No need for cynicism either, just a reappraisal of the nature of the deep state and how they view the global rabble of ordinary people.

Our history is literally overflowing with evidence that the public is regularly duped and lied to on a daily basis, all with media complicity.  It has become so normal now that no one really notices and those that do are ridiculed as “conspiracy theorists”.

What happened to investigative journalism?

We are not talking about Lizard beings living in your toilet or Elvis Presley running a hot-dog stall in Blackpool. This is a genuine and disturbing fraud that is causing deep suffering, the effects of which we can barely imagine.

When we begin to discern the same fake patterns of information that repeat again and again until they become too compelling to disregard, we have a choice:  to question why and network with others to find answers or to open a bottle of wine or watch Netflix and pretend the forces of authority do care about us and want to keep us safe.

Time to wake up from our slumber.

One has to keep the possibility open that our “Official Culture” has been programmed to accept a consensus reality that bares very little relationship to objective truth. Once you learn to recognise those veiled patterns of pathological thinking in language, ideology and strategy you can begin to predict what will happen.

Once you realise that you’re smelling a very stinky rat, then many further questions might emerge, two of which may be a) Why are the Powers that Be doing such a thing? And b) how is it even possible?

Well, at it’s simplest, it’s all about money.

At its most complex, it’s concerned with Establishment factions warring between themselves for a slice of a future pie that is still being baked. It is about their respective ideologies clashing over the management of the global population. What better way to bring global government advocates together while “socially distancing” everyone else to prevent those pesky communities of people who can think for themselves?

Combine those two together and it becomes all about control.

Isn’t that what history has always been about?

A concentration of inter-generational psychopaths at the top of a social pile are quite happy to do almost anything to retain their status. The Hegelian Dialectic (thesis) versus (anti-thesis) equals (synthesis) is a favourite of these people. We can also describe it more simply as “problem-reaction-solution”: You create the problem, wait for the mass reaction and then step in to provide a “solution” which then delivers the outcome you had ready all along. Biowarfare and terrorism are the tools of such thinking.

As to how it is possible to pull the wool over so many eyes and float pseudoscience and blatant lies with apparent ease…Well, much of this blog discusses that subject, so feel free to peruse. The short version is that we are in living through a period of history where modern society has been subject to about 70 years of intense social engineering that has targeted our minds and bodies so that we are much more susceptible to bullshit without having the slightest idea we have been manipulated.

That’s the basic upshot.

As Czech theoretical physicist and former assistant professor at Harvard University Dr Luboš Motl states in a recent article:

“The Covid-19 crisis – specifically, the reaction to it – demonstrates that people have grown bored, detached, and easily impressionable by things that have nothing to do with the roots of their society. We are all – or too many of us – fin de siècle Romans now.

A large number of Westerners are happy to accept the suicidal shutting down of their economies to try to halt a virus that predominantly causes old and sick people to die just a few weeks or months before they would have anyway. Just as they enthusiastically endorse proclamations such as that there are 46 sexes, not two; that the flatulence of a cow must be reduced to save a polar bear; that millions of migrants from the Third World must be invited to Europe and assumed to be neurosurgeons; and so on.

The widespread opinion that everything, including economies, must be sacrificed to beat coronavirus is a revival of medieval witch hunts; the sacrifice seems more important than finding an effective method to deal with the problem.”

This is the same irrationality that sees nearly 2 in 5 Americans ditching Corona BEER over virus concerns and why Food shortages are likely as US farmers dump MOUNTAINS and LAKES of food

Keeping in mind what Dr Segura and other experts wrote, there are plenty of reasons why most of us are so quick to believe it is a pandemic and why global governments stand to benefit from that compliance. This even extends to some twat on the BBC’s Panorama giving us precise lessons in how to wash our hands. As James Corbett mentions, this is indoctrination that speaks down to us as if we are primary school children in order to drum compliance into our heads. Perhaps some of us are. After all, we have been immersed in a juvenile rendering of reality for many decades in various forms. Clearly, they believe that we are dumbed down enough to accept it.

Well, are we as stupid as they think?

Are you?

I hope you’ll read at least some of the articles in the links page and many more that will no doubt emerge to rightfully question the shameful media and equally corrupt World Health Organisation which has spearheaded this drive.

While disengaging from the hysteria might prove impossible for some, it’s very important not to let the media hypnotise you. This is like a social contagion in itself. To be swept up in unthinking reactions force fed into the mass mind will likely prove more fatal than any strain of flu. Fear-based stress lowers the immune system and messes with your mind.

It doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that lockdowns of this kind will take their toll on the health of the human population.  (See also: Why severe social distancing might actually result in more coronavirus deaths.)

With economic strife around the corner we need to be fit and healthy to cope. That means building our community bonds and supporting each other. It does not mean buying into the media fear-mongering. Nor does it mean accepting – yet again – another major distraction from the eternal tinkering and consequent damage that the government and the banks are doing to the economic architecture, effectively pushing it toward another global recession from which we will not recover, at least, not for a long while.

It means building your knowledge base and strengthening your awareness of possibilities. With more awareness you have more choices, with more choices you will be better able to choose your direction and have your own thoughts instead of having someone choose for you; to use your compliant mind as fertile real estate for their own ideas.

Many more details will emerge to confirm that our political elite and their handlers are not attempting these lock downs to protect us. Their general ideology is in favour of reducing the Earth’s numbers as any Establishment think-tank report will tell you, so they are hardly likely to be reacting in this fashion to “save lives” … Unless there was something that is threatening to their long-term power base.

What could that be?

Here is my summary drawn from information in the below links with some crucial dots connected from the cassiopaea transcripts:

One Possible Scenario…

There is a common misconception that the reasons for the measures being imposed on Western nations is to prevent them getting infected all at once, or to avoid them infecting those who are weak or elderly as per the official mainstream narrative – They talk of “flattening the curve.” This is false. There are several complexes of agendas in play, as well conflicts.

There are two factors here: the economic and the political both of which are being used to increase the power of the authorities. As they see it, this is an opportunity to “reset” the economy so that they can put everything back together again when all the chaos is over. So the idea is to burst the bubble now and then to regrow the markets and make a lot of profit meantime. In other words, this is part of an economic crash that is engineered but may become uncontrollable. Thus, it is the height of wishful thinking. To reinforce and centralise their power requires a global lock-down and the imposition of restrictions and rules under the cover of protection thereby extending their ability to control people as they go about their dangerous tinkering with an already flat-lining economy.

However, the good news is – this will backfire due to the gradual exposure of the truth of the situation.

Although this hoax was partially planned, the virus outbreak in China represented an opportunity by the West’s Establishment to initiate their plans ahead of schedule via the World Health Organisation (WHO) which is a tool of a minority of corrupt insiders. The aim is to enforce a new “capitalist” “eco-smart” system defined by much greater socio-economic amid centralised controls but they did not envisage it playing out in this way. Again, this is opportunistic in terms of time-scale though it seems the use of biowarfare was certainly part of the toolkit to be used at some juncture, depending on the response, or lack thereof.
.

The virus did not appear first in China. There were experiments at Fort Detrick regarding the creation of a vaccine that would make humans more controllable. They have enough detail to know that a virus can change DNA. They use viruses to go in and replace very specific segments of DNA to cure diseases. If there are certain sets of genes that make people less controllable, the engineered virus is programmed to go in and alter/erase them. For example, there are personality characteristics that people have that make them open to experience. If one is open to experience, creative, you don’t follow the crowd, or you like coffee etc. these are all inputted into dense data sets from a variety of sources. (If you think that Fort Detrick isn’t all about biowarfare, think again. Read Fort Detrick’s mind-blowing, murderous history

This vaccine had unexpected effects and in some cases did the opposite of what was intended. The strain escaped into the population and further mutated. Indeed, it was carried to China by US soldiers. China soon knew the type and origin and launched a massive campaign to control the situation. This was seen by Western powers as a good model to follow with additional add-on factors. In the interim, further mutations have occurred, resulting in two major strains.

This minority of government, corporate and “Deep State” insiders need to stop the spread of that which they “created” since they are actually producing constructive results in some of the psycho-genetic makeup of the population. For some, this bioengineered, mutated strain will bring out the negative behaviour, for others it will enhance more positive dynamics. This is a rather delicious irony I believe. The more you try to control the less likely one’s objectives will be met – and even result in highly unexpected effects.

Naturally, at this point at least, this is impossible to prove but it makes the most sense. Why else would the global Elite be so desperately keen to lock everything down when we know it is just like any other flu – except for this caveat of mutation? If it was in their best interests and a decimation of global populations was in progress (or even the annual flu count) you would hear nothing. This reaction is due to the fact it is not in THEIR best interests and indeed, is a major threat to their positions of power should enough people have become infected. This is their worst possible scenario and now they are doing damage control.

The fact that so many leaders (Angela Merkel, Boris Johnson and other ministers have been “infected” is merely another ruse to persuade the public to knuckle down and get with the programme. i.e. (Look even the Prime Minister has it! Gosh! Then I really should take note and stay indoors!) Very transparent.

Many political leaders were sold a story that this virus got out and that it would do things that would cause lots of problems if strategies weren’t implemented now. They were told it would unleash uncontrollable social chaos if they didn’t get with the picture. What precisely they were told and by whom we can only speculate. Not everyone is in on the truth and there are turf wars taking place between certain Establishment groups..

So, the solution is to create a global vaccination program which they hope will get their overall agenda for control back on track.

I’m personally not convinced of the science of vaccines, but that isn’t the issue. THIS is the issue right here:

“Desirous of streamlining vaccine technology still further and enabling vaccine stockpiles in an even shorter time frame, researchers began tinkering in the mid-1990s with nucleic acid vaccines, which include DNA vaccines and messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. As a form of gene therapy, both represent significant departure from classical vaccines.” – COVID-19: The Spearpoint For Rolling Out a ‘New Era’ of High-Risk, Genetically Engineered Vaccines

That’s the distinction. Throwing about the “anti-vaxxer” label doesn’t do justice to these concerns. Vaccines of today are not the same as classical vaccines of yester-year. Most people want to highlight these dangers fairly and sensibly. But when you combine this vaccination program with invasive technology and the surveillance state – then you really have a problem.

A vaccination record that is linked to Wifi SMART infrastructure, finances, social media, health records etc. and the current 5G apparatus is being erected around us  while our attention is distracted. (You’ll also want to take a cold, hard look at the role your smart phone plays in all this….) These vaccines and the architecture built around them would be designed to prevent certain signals from being able to activate certain genes, thus limiting the risk of broadening perceptions and thus raising awareness. These effects appear to be the byproducts of this bioengineered strain.

It’s like this: vaccines will contain bioengineered adjuvants and nanoparticles programmed to respond to the 5G grid which in turn may well be integrated into MAIN CORE data base, PRECRIME surveillance all under the guise of public health.

Or maybe you’ll opt for your vaccination records being up-to-date with the new Quantum-dot tattoos?

Ah, so many possibilities – all of which ultimately lead to ZERO freedom.

Sounds like science fiction right?

Behavioural conditioning is playing out all over the world. In fact, our decades old social engineers The Rockefeller Foundation has been floating this scenario and indeed, preparing for it. In 2010, they published a paper predicting how a pandemic can be used as an excuse to establish global authoritarian power. It’s called Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development and you can read it here. As G. Edward Griffin rightly describes: “The first scenario, titled, “Lock Step”, describes a world of total government control and authoritarian leadership. It envisions a future where a pandemic would allow national leaders to flex their authority and impose airtight rules and restrictions that would remain after the pandemic faded. The first half of this scenario already has unfolded. Will it continue as predicted?”

It’s all there in black and white.

The convergence of SMART infrastructure, surveillance and a digital identity has been on the cards now for a long time. All these barmy technocrats need is a suitable “crisis” to get the ball rolling. And here we are.  No up-to-date vaccinations on your iPhone? Sorry Sir/Madam you are not authorised to travel. Criminal record for posting subversive anti-government propaganda? Sorry Sir/Madam we can’t accept your phone credits here.

It’s the RULES.

Is it law? Nope, not at the moment. But it seems all you need to do is to treat adults like children and repeat “RULES” enough and people obey.

RULES can easily become LAW without you even questioning it, likely because mass behaviour is so controlled that a population will positively clamour for it. “STAY AT HOME, SAVE LIVES…” will have been burned into the mass limbic brain for so long, no amount of contrary information will have any effect.

Sceptical about behaviour modification (BM)?

Western society has been in a living laboratory since the Second World War. Want a sickly sweet version of this? Well, go to the UK government’s latest outsourced BM team called MINDSPACE: Influencing Behaviour Through Public Policy highlighted in a recent UK Column presentation. Here is an interesting little window into what this is really all about:

MINDSPACE – Influencing behaviour through public policy Cabinet Office, Institute for Goverment

So, we can look forward to “tak[ing] a lead on issues despite public opposition”. And if behaviour change is an “unhelpful term” then we can expect to see new linguistic tricks for social control which are no longer hidden but aired in plain sight. These soundbites are carefully sweetened with a camouflage of platitudes and social justice euphemisms extolling the virtues of social progress and protection. Thus, mandatory vaccinations are inevitable. IF you just sit back and let it happen.

The recently published article in The Telegraph: “Posting anti-vaccine propaganda on social media could become criminal offence, Law Commissioner says” is proof positive of what they have in mind.

And if the public starts to become aware of this propaganda, you have the UK’s 77 Brigade the Psyops section of the British military that is waging an Information War on the population. Mike Robinson of UK Column writes:

Last Wednesday, during the daily UK Government Coronavirus livestream, the head of the British Army, General Sir Nick Carter, bragged:

We’ve been involved with the Cabinet Office Rapid Response Unit, with our 77th Brigade helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation. Between three and four thousand of our people have been involved, with around twenty thousand available the whole time at high readiness.

So, this blog, and so many others are probably in their sights as “disinformation.”

And what an amazing coincidence that a Coronavirus vaccine was conveniently announced even before the pandemic was in in full throttle, the WHO standing in as its Big Pharma figurehead. The pharmaceutical companies are set to make yet another big fat profit on top of an already medically corrupt system of care. As a result of the 24 hr saturation of covid-19 propaganda people are denied proper medical care and real issues like the on-going Yemeni crisis is ignored while businesses that benefit from war continue to flourish.


I know, this is a lot to take in for many..

What is undeniably apparent if we summarise the bare bones of the situation is:

a) This is NOT a pandemic b) The upper levels of governments are lying to us and inflating the figures
c) there is no reason at all to lock down nations. d) An economic depression is around the corner. e) The new genetic recombinant vaccines are unlike any other vaccine of the past: they are untested and tinker with the DNA. NO ONE knows what the effects will be on the mass population. But it is very likely indeed that it will mutate through those who have been stupid enough to be vaccinated. 

If that is all you take away from this, that is enough. More questions will ensue and you’ll have further choices to make.

But at least they will be conscious choices.

Or you can keep on clapping the NHS like dutiful Maoist followers and let fear be your guide.

I suggest you and your communities do NOT take whatever vaccination programme is coming down the pipeline sold as an antidote to this problem because it will be nothing of the kind. If you have no choice then there are de-tox and healing protocols available (which will be outlined in a forthcoming post).

I hope this at least makes you stop and think. Even if you think the above summary is nonsense – just look at the science and start from there. If it strikes a chord in you as a rational human being seeking to resist lies, then please pass this link on to others.

And remember: DONT PANIC! Even if this may be the precursor to a global reset to which we must prepare accordingly...

Take it away James Corbett of the Corbett Report:


It is the worst of times.

I don’t think I have to explain how this is the worst of times. But I will anyway.

It’s the worst of times economically. An absolutely unprecedented 10 million Americans have filed jobless claims in the last two weeks alone, with many millions more expected to join them in the coming weeks. The numbers are similarly apocalyptic in CanadaEuropeSouth Korea and many other parts of the globe. The word of the year is “supply chain,” as people are starting to discover just how tenuous the links supplying the global just-in-time delivery of food and medical supplies and cars and high-tech goods and basically everything else really are during a massive worldwide disruption. The Fed is outright monetizing the debt and dropping helicopter money on Wall Street as fast as it can print it up, but markets are still in meltdown. The modern-day bread lines are forming and there is no longer any doubt that we have entered the event horizon of The Greatest Depression.

This is also the worst of times for human freedom. Half of humanity is now on lockdown orders or being requested to “self-isolate.” Borders are snapping shut and internal checkpoints are popping up in country after country as travel is further and further restricted. Police drones are increasingly being used to enforce “social distancing” and snitch hotlines are allowing citizens to police each other. Governments are now openly tracking smartphones in order to monitor all citizens’ movements at all times. Medical martial law is here, and it’s only getting more restrictive with each passing day.

And this is the worst of times for our health. It is quite possible that a bioweapon has been wittingly or unwittingly unleashed upon the world. Meanwhile, installation of 5G towers is proceeding apace, threatening to further compromise our immune systems and otherwise harm our health in the midst of this virus scare. Promising potential cures for whatever is going around right now are being actively suppressed by Big Pharma and their mafia buddies. And a completely novel mRna vaccine is being developed to “cure” and prevent further outbreaks of the Covid-19 disease. Once that vaccine is ready, you will require proof of vaccination to engage in most daily activities as The National Plan to Vaccinate Every American unfolds before our eyes.

It is the best of times.

Given just how “worst” the “worst of times” appears to be, it might seem that there is no “best of times” to be had from this reset. But it is important to remember that a reset involves wiping the slate clean, and, as I’ve pointed out before, it is only in these moments of chaos that there is the opportunity for true change—change initiated by us as individuals, rather than being foisted upon us from on high.

If you’ve found this column, it’s likely you’re already aware of the need to change the status quo. Waking up to the fact that the world we inhabit is built on politicians’ lies, unpayable debt, false flag terror, and kakistocratic rule is unpleasant, to say the least. But it brings with it a secondary burden: the Quixotic task of convincing those around you that there is a problem and that things need to change.

Convincing others of this need shouldn’t be difficult to do; after all, everyone knows that the system is broken. But the propaganda the public is fed has been so effective, their indoctrination so thorough, that the most the majority can muster is an inchoate rage that manifests in squabbles between neighbors rather than in attempts to overthrow the psychopaths who are attempting to enslave humanity.

But now the reset button has been pushed.

Strive For Simplicity, Economise on Energy (3)

“I have long held an opinion, almost amounting to conviction, in common I believe with many other lovers of natural knowledge, that the various forms under which the forces of matter are made manifest have one common origin; or, in other words, are so directly related and mutually dependent, that they are convertible, as it were, one into another, and possess equivalents of power in their action.”

Energy

What is energy?

Energy is a property of matter, space, objects and fields. It can be transferred and converted, but it can’t be destroyed – or created. Energy can be chemical, thermal electrical and kinetic, all of which exists in and around the mind-body system.

For our focus it is potential energy which can be stored and qualitatively accumulated which is of interest.

Energy can be refined in order to get more vitality for your voltage, so to speak.

Since sufficient energy is the fuel for all manner of action, (and The Work) it stands to reason that the more energy you have within your mind-body system the more enhanced the capacity for change.  With enough stored, (and the “space” ready to store it) we have a greater chance of changing our physical, mental and emotional states.

With a greater store of energy on tap, this might even provide the “nourishment” and power needed to fuel overall meta-physical transformation.

At this point in history the demands on our time and energy are relentless. Many of us have become mentally ill or physically debilitated due to environmental and psycho-social factors. In this technological age there are reasons to fill every waking hour with activities and distractions which feed our restlessness but give little in terms of true nourishment. If we cut out the clutter and re-organise our daily lives so that things become simpler we make better use of our time. Time management goes hand in hand with simplicity. Economising conserving and simplifying are mutually inclusive.

What is crucial to your life and what is just repetitive, useless busy-ness? Is that moving centre sending into you spirals of pointless activity in order to displace energy that could be useful to personal transformation? Ask yourself honestly: Is your attention habitually fixed on getting things to feel better? Has this focus overshadowed what’s truly important in my life?

If that’s true and like so many of us, you have been caught up in finding too much satisfaction in possessions (or possessing people) then it’s a cue to simplify and to realise that attachment to beliefs and their possessions are often the greatest obstacle to living a more harmonious life. Or, as German poet and playwright Johann von Goethe expressed it: “Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.”

To achieve simplicity we have to conserve our energy in thought and action. One thing is for sure, you’ll need every ounce of it if you are to transform your inner life. By gettting rid of that which ultimately drains you, it opens up the space for an ongoing process of spring-cleaning, much like you do with your flat or house. And it’s amazing how much more can be achieved by decreasing one’s complexity.

The Hissy Fit Generation and The Loss of Free Speech VI: The Jekyll & Hyde of Social Media (3)

“People will accept ideas presented in technological form that would be abhorrent in any other form.

Censorship and Fakebook News

Since the fake news trope has been doing the rounds Facebook is now the Establishment’s social media tool of choice to combat the rise of alternative news outlets, as well as more mainstream but editorially more responsible news rooms such as Russia’s wildly popular flagship news network RT.  Under the banner of “tackling fake news” Zuckerberg’s crusade is the perfect platform for the terminally offended and the easily swayed by the vast echo chamber of predominantly left-liberal delusions that make up Facebook’s political discourse. News is further filtered, sanitised and put through the algorithmic grinder of FB’s ideology.

It doesn’t matter whether you are left or right leaning in your views  – one political belief censored in favour of another is bad news for free speech and democracy. Indeed, in late 2016 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to employ a few websites that would have the honour of labelling stories as “fake news” according to an agreed media consensus. These include ABC News, Factcheck.org and PolitiFact, and the so-called myth-busting website Snopes.com. According to conservative website The Daily Caller there is a problem:Almost all of the writers churning out fact checks for Snopes have a liberal background, and many of them have expressed contempt for Republican voters. The Daily Caller could not identify a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background. Snopes did not respond to a list of questions from The DC regarding the site’s ideological leaning.” [1] Match this with Facebook curators and you are unlikely to get unbiased news, rather  it will be selected according to what is deemed acceptable to modern day, left-liberal thinking. As discussed previously such thinking is no longer the kind of leftism that values free speech but has slipped into opinion-hungry authoritarianism.  

Debunking spurious news stories is less admirable when it comes from mega-corporations who are walking in step with Establishment, the cogs of which are greased by psychopathic perceptions. Thankfully, a large proportion of the public are simply not buying it.[2] This is due to the hard evidence provided by independent media of the very thing of which it has been accused: propagating lies and fake news propaganda. This is what makes it so painfully ironic. The mainstream media is, and has always been fake news. It has been caught red-handed, with its pants down  on numerous occasions, peddling sometimes subtle psyops and on other occasions ludicrous BS that would have made Machiavelli cry with shame. Whether it’s 24hr fear-mongering, Deep State anti-Russian propaganda, paid-up editorials, or the ping-pong of culture wars,  the MSM has been at the forefront of the most atrocious fake news for many decades.

Facebook has elected to take on the “disinformation” circulating from alternative news outlets and conveniently forget the most obvious examples of fake news which was spread by most of the corporate-chained MSM. The explosive details of tacit media support and collusion for the Clinton election campaign exposed in the Wikileaks Podesta emails and by The Intercept was purposely omitted and suppressed by Facebook, Google and Twitter as a matter of policy – policy which is founded on personal opinion of their CEOs and shaped by the Liberal arm of the Establishment.  This included drafting news pieces and handing them to suitably “friendly” media plants dotted around MSM outlets. [3] An internal strategy document dated January 2015 reads: “As we discussed on our call, we are all in agreement that the time is right [to] place a story with a friendly journalist in the coming days that positions us a little more transparently while achieving the above goals.” [4] All of this and more was happily shared on social networks with Facebook as the primary disseminator.

Whether we have our faces glued to the smartphone in the street or feverishly checking our Twitter and Facebook accounts on our lap top at work, face-to-face interaction is fast being replaced by social media, which has society built around it. These networks offer steadily diminishing returns on social investment since a large proportion is rooted in self-promotion, self-admiration and the endless noise of opinions. The latter is drawn from a long since compromised mainstream media that has the audacity to charge alternative media with propagating “fake news,” a meme expressly created by neo-Cold War strategists within the Deep State to counter the non-existent presence of Russian interference in US elections. Opinions therefore are useful for creating emotional capital  and the noise of distraction for the rest of us, so that intel agencies can continue to extract all the data they want.

Meantime, young adults are having to cope with an economic time-bomb; the legacy of poor parenting and a lack of play; minimal contact with nature and poor social skills. On top of a pervasive technology that is re-wiring the brain from easily accessible hardcore porn to virtual and highly superficial forms of exchange which, by their very nature, “optimise” and “compress” information down to soundbites. The pace of information exchange and the ratio of quantity over quality means that the highs and consequent lows are making addicts and infants out of many millennials and Generation Zer’s. The neuro-hacking of culture over the last few decades has given us a crisis in the young, now exacerbated by social media and smartphone technology. Yet, such technology is here to stay. So, can we turn it around and apply its true potential?

First, we must dig deep in order to find out what’s truly going on.

Facebook, more popular than Google, is now herding over 2 billion users and growing faster than any year since 2012. According to Tech Crunch the platform hasn’t lost its popularity with”66 percent of Facebook’s monthly users return each day now compared to 55 percent when it hit 1 billion.”  The social networking giant has an enormous influence on young minds and society as a whole in ways we are only just beginning to fathom.

Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg offered his new mission statement to “Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” This has to get the prize for the most disingenuous statement since George W. Bush claimed he was bringing freedom to Iraq. The world is getting closer together all right but we ‘ain’t holding hands. Rather, we are giving over our freedom and the very kernel of our minds to a new form of corporatism and surveillance. Analysts can barely keep up with how Facebook and other social media platforms are literally redesigning our lives and psychology.

As smartphone usage attests, there are voluminous studies indicating how social media (Facebook) is bad for your health. A family member often tells me: “Time just seems to disappear when I’m checking Facebook…It’s like I’m under a spell!” Two hours almost seem like two minutes. Yet, they frequently come away feeling exhausted rather than inspired. Why? University of Kent psychologists wrote in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology that compared to general internet use Facebook and its related stimuli can lead us to underestimate time. Although general internet use has the same effect, Facebook was the  worst offender for such time distortion. The distortion of time locks us into a greater exposure to social media and internet surfing than we realise, suggesting that our mind is in a specific state of addictive suggestibility.[1] They found that it was Facebook-related images that changed how we pay attention to this visual stimuli, and likely plays a significant part in the rise of internet addiction as a whole.

The Hissy Fit Generation and The Loss of Free Speech VI: The Jekyll & Hyde of Social Media (1)

By M.K. Styllinski

“Social media spark a revelation that we, the people, have a voice, and through the democratization of content and ideas we can once again unite around common passions, inspire movements, and ignite change.”

― Brian Solis, Engage: The Complete Guide for Brands and Businesses to Build, Cultivate, and Measure Success in the New Web

***

“Ignorance meets egoism, meets bad taste meets mob rule.”

Andrew Keen, The Cult of the Amateur


The above quotations from writers Brian Solis and Andrew Keen are equally valid. Social media has already offered enormous benefits to connect, share and liberate humanity. It has revolutionised business as a marketing tool and allowed us an instantaneous global reach. Yet, technology – as everything else – always presents a choice between a Jekyll or Hyde application. Which perception and allotted values gain dominance will logically characterise how it develops. The internet and social media is still very much driven by the same pathology of Mr. Hyde that has been bludgeoning ordinary humanity into submission since the rise of the oil industry to the emergence of big data as the new oil. Consequently, Hyde is subsuming Jekyll at a faster rate with its moral character disappearing fast.

Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple surpass the national GDP of many countries and have more overt and covert control over our lives than the State – if indeed there is much difference. Monopolisation is too weak a word to describe how these companies seek to dominate our lives through the kind of advertising, marketing and data capitalisation that is literally predicting our every move. We are becoming the new algorithms in a vast simulation of global consumption and predictive analysis. This is inseparable from the National Security State and its SMART surveillance infrastructure. The new frontiers of social media are redefining communication fully enmeshed in the propaganda of eco-SMART cities of the future and the visions of the technocrats.

The 1960’s saw a genuine revolutionary spirit of inquiry and an expansion of awareness which was comprehensively hijacked by the Establishment. Now, we have the same commercialisation, consolidation, centralisation and control (the 4C’s) appearing in the 2000’s to divert and re-direct the enormous creativity present in humanity in partnership with this technology. To do so, the Establishment and its agencies must ensure that generations of young adults are suitably disconnected from perennial values and re-connected – even addicted – to technology as an end in itself; to be made to believe that their lives and their eco-SMART future is inevitable. Social media and its communication and consumer platforms are part of this agenda, about which most of us are wholly unaware.

“But I couldn’t do without my smart phone…”

And that’s how it works. Tweak society just enough so that such tools become indispensable because infrastructure, economics and commerce is built around it.  Once again, technology is not the problem, it is those with the money and mindset that determine its trajectory. The reasons why must be  understood in order to have the choice to resist such impositions. Our freedom of mind depends on it.

Before we get into the murky world that is Facebook, this somewhat lengthy post will start with the new human appendage granting entry into social media – and just about everything else – the smart phone.

The Hissy Fit Generation and the Loss of Free Speech V: Infantilism in America and Beyond

By M.K. Styllinski

Let me tell you about Preschool Mastermind, a daycare for adults in Brooklyn, N.Y. It is not, as I had thought, an April Fool’s joke or even a fetish den but an actual thing. Tall, hairy, wrinkled Americans — I’m assuming they have jobs because you can’t get student loans for kindergarten — pay a grand to recreate their happiest times, spending their days as four-year-olds: fingerpainting, show-and-telling, playing musical chairs, napping with a blankie and a Fig Newton.

— Heather Mallick, ‘The growing childishness of American adults’


Columnist Heather Mallick quoted above comments on mass infantilism and political disengagement which can only lead to the erosion of our civil liberties. She highlights a recent interview of whistleblower Edward Snowden by John Oliver of The Intercept who took a camera to Times Square and asked people who “Edward Snowden” was. Not one person knew. However, when asked if it was okay for the NSA to store photos of their genitals  they were vehemently indignant. As Mallick observes: “This is how you get toddlers upset; you mention swimsuit areas.”Hugely important issues that strike at the very heart of our freedoms barely register, unless it’s to do with personal shame.

The freedom to exhibit one’s tackle and the shame of it being viewed (with probable hilarity) by State minions certainly throws up a tangled mess of mixed Freudian messages….

If you think the world is going insane then you can be sure that much of this is due to an inability to process deep change and the horror of having to confront one’s own psychology in the face of uncertainties and shocks. The net result of cultural narcissism means an arrested emotional development which has led to a widespread absence of maturity and responsibility. Nonetheless, you don’t have to be a pathological narcissist to find yourself grappling with such things. Since we live in such a culture, it is probable that all of us have had to confront narcissistic traits and various degrees of trauma in order to truly move forward with our lives. As those who have finally tackled such an ambitious objective can attest – it is not a pleasant experience, which is why those exhibiting symptoms of infantilism find it doubly difficult to claw their way back to adulthood without some appropriate form of therapy. For older individuals who have spent a life time sucking on the dummy of victimhood and entitlement this may be a tall order indeed, since it has become their personality with little room for change.

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary the definition of an adult is “a fully developed and mature: grown-up”. What does it mean to be grown up? Robert A. Hall’s article in the American Thinker gives a suitable description of what an ideal adult might be, taking into account that none of us can live up to this ideal all or even some of the time. The key is to strive to do so, both for yourself and your children since they will follow your example and define the next generation. He lists several descriptors which define a normal adult including: resilience; patience; disciplined; openness; consideration; supporting themselves and their family; altruistic in day to day life and most importantly, they do not take on a victim status but cultivate a sense of responsibility. In a word: true adults have integrity; they have a healthy ego that is kept in check by humility knowing that it’s not all about them and they are aware of their weaknesses but strive to overcome them. As discussed previously, many parents and the cultural cross-currents under which they were immersed in the 60s and 70s were exposed to a range of detrimental social changes which ultimately did no favours for them or their children.

Marketing Infantilism

Our body-centric focus is certainly over-developed alongside an elevated egotism. This infantilism is presiding over the male-female removal of body hair to the normalisation of paedophilia in law and academia. We are seeing generations of men and women who are personifying the psycho-spiritual chaos that has been wrought over the last several decades through emotional impairment, missing certain stages of neurological development through experiences in childhood and beyond. Factor in social engineering, postmodernist inculcation and a legion of other psychic pressures, the concept of adulthood has been twisted out of shape to induce a total reliance on the State for all one’s provisions. The government as provider of social welfare has fed into an assumed right to be taken care of, further eroding the potential of community and the lost creative power of people to nurture, support and nourish each other financially and spiritually.

Neuro-Hacking the Mass Mind (II)

Conférence Neuro-Pirates, Neuro-Esclaves partie 1 : Intervention de Lucien Cerise (Neuro-Hackers Conference – Neuro-Slaves Part I: A Talk by Lucien Cerise)


Continuing our exploration of Lucien Cerise’s collection of essays entitled Neuro-Hackers: Reflections on Social Engineering (2016) (Neuro-Pirates Reflexions Sur L’Ingenierie Sociale) published by Kontre Kulture.

Neuro-Hackers provides an overview of a neurological “hacking” that has been taking place in the modern age and imposed upon global populations. It seeks a “maximum efficacy” in the elimination of the seeds of revolt and if such a revolutions manifest they are to be of the Establishment’s choosing – not ours. More alarmingly, since we are no more than cattle or sheep for these self-elected Masters, it is of the utmost importance to their objectives that the collective herd does not awaken to its own power. It seems at the end of every route to true freedom they have prepared for it, anticipated it and created avenues by which we will be “entertained.”

As Cerise states:

In our age of increasing labour automation the master no longer depends on his slave for production and can therefore begin to physically suppress him. But in order not to provoke a reaction, he must do so stealthily, without striking it him thus, by stages plunging him into a globally anxiogenic, pathogenic, depressing and morbid environment where everything is polluted and toxic to the body and mind, from ambient chemical molecules to the ideas and representations disseminated in public opinion. Thus it is that a whole population is murdered by a small fire without being aware of it, as in the manner of the “boiled frog.” * [1]

In other words, the real battle is not external but through our very minds and the plasticity of our brain and epigenetic inheritance. Hence, the Elite seek to extinguish the very spark of a mental condition that might give rise to a genuine individual and collective awakening. The author mentions the role of the neuro-hackers is to induce a collective suicide and the suppression of creativity through such mental illness so that tribalism is invoked and maintained as camouflage for globalist authorities. Further, he has reminded us of a strata of three social engineering applications currently at play in Western societies in particular, each of which emboldens the other. As an illustration to this idea, we might liken this to the stages required for the erection of a prison for the mind: the ground work or foundation is laid, the building blocks or façade erected and finally the roof under which societies are housed is fixed in place, a container for the mind to which we are all subject.

Neuro-Hacking the Mass Mind (I)

By M.K. Styllinski

“…brain-hacking through social engineering and other processes is already a reality, and hackers are our brains. This ‘neuro-hacking’ can involve acting on the hardware, that is to say on the biological and genetic substrate of the brain, but it can also involve acting on the software, that is to say, on the communication code that we learn from society.” – Lucien Cerise


One of the breakthroughs in understanding the level of influence of the Deep State and Overworld dynamics has been through the recent revelations from Wikileaks’ Podesta emails. A veritable Pandora’s Box of connections has led to Pizzagate – now Pedogate – blackmail, corruption, child pornography, sex trafficking, black magick rituals and a plethora of other sordid revelations fanning out from the quest for regime change and the battle for resources in the Middle East. After researchers from all political persuasions and beliefs had been highlighting these horrors for years, these leaked emails, now being sat on by the FBI, are the closest yet to offering proof of the mechanisms which are passed from one Establishment/Deep State generation to the next like a dark baton slippery with blood.

Slowly but surely the why, who and how of our Official Culture and the drivers which ensure that humanity remains under the yoke of  World State cartels is being revealed in a way that hasn’t been seen before. Oil/Gas, weapons, drugs, and sex/organ trafficking lie at the top of multi-tiered resource pyramid. The financial architecture that perpetuates these unimaginably toxic channels is achieved through a long tradition of social engineering by Elite factions, the puppets & players of which follow a revolving door of power, irrespective of a President and his administration. This is the facade, the entrenched and inevitable outgrowth of the State that permits a shadow government to remain forever at the control panel of perpetual war and social disruption. As top-level power brokers between the CIA, the NSA and FBI jostle for supremacy let’s not forget that overall, these agencies are primarily engaged in a war for our minds as their primary reason for being.

However, let’s not imagine that the Wikileaks organisation and their poster-child Edward Snowden are somehow working for the greater good, although many in their staff may think so. I suspect that this period of permitted leaks is very probably nothing more than a psychological operation, a limited hangout of the CIA and thus an attempt to acclimatize populations to the ubiquity of surveillance and intelligence that is literally inside your home, phone, T.V. and anything else connected to the internet and the emerging SMART society.  This is one facet of the same social engineering project that we’ll discuss below.

It’s a risky game managing the flow of “leaks.” Allow too much information to seep into public consciousness and a momentum begins to emerge, not enough information and they can’t pursue their time-table of phased objectives. Which is why the hacking of lap-tops, smart phones and T.V.’s merely mirrors the hacking of our minds and beliefs – a potentially far more dangerous state of affairs then data mining. For example, the core roots of progressivism and the left have now been infected by ponerological streams of political correctness and narcissism, working in concert with CoIntelpro agents in much the same way as the New Age or Human potential movement as a whole. Thus, social movements such as LGBT, Black Lives Matter and Soros-led “social justice” organisations such as Moveon.org tune into a genuine desire for social equity and “rights” but are created or hijacked early on, driven by Deep State directives that desire the chaos of tribalism as a default setting for society. The younger generation of Millennials – who should be the hope of the world – appear incapable of exploring this dichotomy because they have already been programmed to embody and act out these inverted social-cultural beliefs, ethics and activism. The rise in an epidemic of narcissism in this demographic further encourages feel-good sensation, and a technology-driven buffer to the acknowledgement of nuance, complexity and attention to objective reality. The ability to think outside the box against ingrained conditioning becomes severely limited because it is perceived as an attack against the collective ego mask of self-entitlement.

Thus, Millennials and older generations of the well-intentioned (and not so well-intentioned) are already falling into the many traps, the escape from which will be extremely difficult since the these info-tainment led emotional hooks of manipulation offer benign moral imperatives to seduce a collective projection of unresolved shadows out into the world, thus turning ideology and justice on its head. Controlled opposition has therefore been easy to manufacture, backed up as it is by fake news of the corporate media. Those that are paying attention can see this formula everywhere you look: whether it is the BBC or CNN that promote the Establishment’s agenda of anti-Russian rhetoric to University Campuses engaging in an Orwellian re-branding of vocabulary in an tragi-comic and painfully ironic stand against racsim and bigotry.  Such tactics focus away from what really matters and into the realm of skin-deep analysis of feeling and sensation. This bio-chemical template that is burned into the young brains of new generations is the neural pathway upon which social engineering functions and thrives. Indeed, it seems much of the left, new age/green and “socially aware” are now the unconscious cultural foot-soldiers of the Deep State. This is why social engineering has been adopted with such pin-pointed skill and precision over the years and why it needs to be confronted and thoroughly explored.

The awakening to the nature of the MSM as a monolithic exercise in propaganda and thought control is gaining ground, thanks largely to the internet. It is becoming less easy to monopolise information and applied knowledge in this age of independent news feeds, FOI requests, forum research, whistle-blowers and leaked documents, despite the signs of psyops constantly filtering the truth. There is a real chance for moderates from the left and right (and many shades inbetween) to turn down the volume of their beliefs and collaborate against a common foe – that of institutionalised psychopathy. Which is why the war is being fought through the inner shadows and unresolved issues that we all have. These weaknesses can be exploited and used by the Elite through suitably prolonged exposure to new forms of social engineering. It is for this reason that lines between awareness, knowledge and apathy and ignorance are being drawn.

And so to neuro-hacking…

Trump Hysteria, Left Hypocrisy and the Four Drivers of the Deep-State Part II

By M.K. Styllinski

Trump1© infrakshun

“That’s why we’ve witnessed such fury from her supporters – they had wrapped themselves so tightly in the Hillary flag that a rejection of her felt like a rejection of them. And when you consider that many American colleges gave their students Wednesday off  class because they were too ‘upset’ to study, you can see that this wasn’t a battle for the White House – this became a genuine battle for America’s future direction. And, indeed, for the West.”

‘Two Fingers to a Politically Correct Elite’ by Ian O’Doherty


Image is everything in America right?

Bill Clinton’s jazz-cool sax playing and predatory behaviour towards women; Barack Obama’s winning smile and languid nonchalance care of a marketing ploy of the first Black American fused with mythic qualities of JFK and Martin Luther King…. Who wouldn’t want such a man proclaiming “Hope and Change” after the Organ Grinder and Monkey of the Bush-Cheney years?

Well, that fell as flat as a week old soda. But not before havoc and mayhem was caused on behalf of Deep State movers.

cool-obama

In the heady days of Obamamania – so cool so fake. See: OBAMA: A LEGACY OF ASHES (2017)

Obama was a gargantuan disappointment failing to deliver on his stunningly hyped message of progressive change as an antidote to the Bush Junta. In particular, African-American supporters were thrown into tail-spins of disillusionment or a psychosis of denial because he gave the U.S. population the exact opposite of emancipation and liberal dreams of equality: he became the figurehead of the same regime change foreign policy strategy killing hundreds of thousands in the process. Our ex-human rights lawyer tipped this country into a full-blown police state and allowed the NSA to transform America into a surveillance society. Despite Edward Snowden, Bradley/Chelsea Manning and other whistle-blowers the dark maneuvers of the NSA  became public knowledge but didn’t change. If anything, it got worse.

Barack Obama’s presidency, (as was his diabolical Nobel Peace Prize) was a carefully managed stage show, the same shadow marketing which has shaped successive presidents to ensure a role designed to whittle away corporate accountability and dismantle the constitution;  to preempt and degauss a restless population and enforce compliance by stealth on behalf of their banking masters.

The same worship of authoritarianism is as relevant now as it was just after the Industrial Revolution and the outgrowth of elite institutional directives post World War II.  Accordingly, the same divide and rule formula in combination with the conditioned “normality” of statism had been used against a dumbed down populace for more than one hundred and fifty years. Yet, we live in the Information Age, an equivalent to an internal expansion of the mind in the same vain that the Industrial Revolution was an expansion of external control. And yet, still – STILL – you have terminally deluded individuals who feel duty-bound to support and defend this war criminal against all the bloody evidence. Such objective proof batters on the door of people with conscience up and down the country pleading to be recognised. Unfortunately, it seems denial and lies have been inculcated to such an extent that a collective Stockholm Syndrome is still holding sway.

Reality Change I: 16 ignition points

 By M.K. Styllinski

 “Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

– James Baldwin


Unless you have been living in a small cave in the mountains for the last few decades (and that may still be an option) you have probably noticed that we are moving through extremely tumultuous times. Having successfully traversed the Grand Hype and misinterpretations of the 2012 Mayan Prophecy which did not say the world would end but indicate massive change – humanity is still here. Nonetheless, it seems we are in for some truly momentous events. In fact, there is a host of global indicators which, in isolation, or as a non-linear combination, could signal an epic meltdown in the fortunes of humanity whilst offering the possibility of a completely new world.

Do not take the following synopsis as inevitable and that we should all order a bulk supply of dehydrated chicken noodles and chlorinated water tablets, pack our bug bags and find our respective caves … Only that one, or several of these events have an extremely high probability of occurring over the next 2 -10 years. Our history appears to be one long bid to cover up the reality that this planet goes through cycles of catastrophic upheaval – a “reset” if you will. Those that learned to read the signs and took sensible measures to avoid unnecessary future hardship in the face of these dramatic environmental and infrastructure changes were the ones that survived. That means psychological as well as practical awareness.

In lieu of what has gone before in this series, I hope this list helps to place the events in context, whilst offering an easy summary of what we are all facing. A selection of links is included under each heading which are not definitive, merely relevant sources for further reading.

Official Culture Reprise III: Authoritarianism Revisited (2)

 “… instead of trusting what their own minds tell them, men have as a rule a weakness for trusting others who pretend to supernatural sources of knowledge.”

Arthur Schopenhauer


article-1192484-054FBEE9000005DC-392_468x551

Promotional poster from the film 1984

Authoritarianism only becomes a dominant force when ponerisation is advanced and normal humanity succumbs to the emerging restrictions. Our trust and belief in those who offer the pretence of leadership and a para-moral imperative appears to have a symbiotic relationship to our wilful blindness and apathy which is also part of the rise and fall of numerous Empires. Someone to lead and show us the way, someone with power, personality and charismatic inspiration that is almost spiritual… The same old patterns are in evidence everywhere one looks.

But what if such power lies within a network of human beings who have shed their reliance on an external authority and have discovered the pragmatism of their own centered faith in the Universe and each other? Do we have to have to have ideologues who arrive based on what we lack inside? Is it possible to manifest a leader or leaders who are drawn from something quite different and where the very notion of leadership is redefined?

We have explored the theories of ponerology, authoritarianism and our own stratum of wishful thinking and wilful blindness. We must also factor in an undue emphasis on the material world and the separation from Nature to which we are mysteriously connected, not just through the thousands of years of bio-rhythms and collective archetypes pulsating through the human psyche, but resonant through our very DNA. We might also posit that all the problems of the world lie not in economic, ecological or socio-cultural solutions but ultimately in our relationship to ourselves and the potential to connect with realities that transcend the five senses.

9/11: An Occult Ritual? V: New Order of the Oculus

“Their method is part psychological warfare and part black magick, and all highly effective. We subconsciously fixate on the very symbols they intend to manipulate us with, our very essences being alchemically transmuted as we play the game. We are playing with fire, but we cannot resist.”

S.K. Bain, ‘A Warning’


If we cast an eye over the last 14 years it is apparent to anyone with an eye on current events that the world is rapidly reaching a crisis point, in large part due to the mega-Ritual of 9/11. The World Trade Centre acted as an opportunity to initiate an omni-directional chaos so that a singular quality of “order” could eventually reign. And you can bet your life that the average person isn’t going to have much of a say in that Hegelian formula – other than serving as sacrificial fodder. And if you look closely, this ritualistic worship so beloved of our psychopathic elite is literally everywhere, from corporatist iconography to Hollywood programming. Yet, it takes some time to actually see it if you haven’t been exposed to the semiotic language, aside from the official culture of beliefs which prohibit the recognition of such “nonsense.”

The famous Sovereign Grand Commander of Scottish Rite Freemasonry Mr. Albert Pike described the Egyptian origins of the Eye of Horus: “… the All-Seeing Eye … to the Egyptian initiates was the emblem of Osiris, the Creator.” And Osiris’ power “… was symbolized by an Eye over a Sceptre. The Sun was termed by the Greeks the Eye of Jupiter, and the Eye of the World; and his is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges.” Which means the descendants of freemasonry are overseen by an All-Seeing-Eye of an ancient Egyptian death cult suffused with Jewish Kabbalism which has consequently been the inspiration for all kinds of hierarchical-based forms of secrecy ever since, regardless of the initial intent.

Pike also went on to do a bit of house-cleaning within the deep corridors of freemasonry which may or may not have been for the most benevolent of reasons. In his famous treatise Morals and Dogma he states: “Magic is the science of the ancient magi … “Magic unites in one and the same science, whatsoever Philosophy can possess that is most certain, and Religion of the Infallible and the Eternal. It perfectly … reconciles these two terms … faith and reason … those who accept [magic] as a rule may give their will a sovereign power that will make them the masters of all inferior beings and of all errant spirits; that is to say, will make them the Arbiters and Kings of the World…”

Not exactly a glowing endorsement of humanity, rather the usual Synarchy and New World Server belief.

640px-Albert_Pike_-_Brady-Handy

Portrait of Albert Pike by Mathew Bradey (wikipedia)

Pike was one of the greatest freemasonic movers and shakers of the last two hundred years. He was also the Klu-Klux-Klan’s chief judiciary officer; reputedly wrote the organisation manual for the terrorist anti-black movement after the U.S. Civil War and fielded accusations that he was a follower of the “Luciferian Doctrine” and breakaway Palladinian sect. It is therefore, hardly surprising that he has become a personification of how freemasonry has effectively two branches: service to others and service to self, which can be a minefield for aspiring freemasons (Such is the reality of ponerology that no system whatsoever is untouched at some stage in its evolution). [1]

By happy chance, Pike would be pleased to know that there is also an All-Seeing-Eye or “Oculus” beneath the Chambers Street, WTC subway stop in New York City which, given our context and the  negative residues of occult manipulation, can only act as a ritualistic “transducer of energies.” Whether with benign intent from the artists or malign intent from the commissioners of the works it is undoubtedly satanic in symbolism.

The All-Seeing-Eye of Horus, the resurrected Egyptian Sun God,  referred to as the Biblical Lucifer, the angel of light is not just on the US dollar bill but part of popular music culture. Whether the “Novus Ordo Seclorum—New Order of the Ages” was purposely included by freemasons as part of the plan of the founding fathers is open to dispute. Benjamin Franklin was certainly a freemason and the rest his colleagues if not freemasons considered themselves the real Christians but were decidedly ambivalent to orthodox Christianity, much like traditional freemasons.

As freemason and walking occult encyclopaedia Manly P. Hall explains:

“On the reverse of our nation’s Great Seal is an unfinished pyramid to represent human society itself, imperfect and incomplete. Above floats the symbol of the esoteric orders, the radiant triangle with its All-Seeing-Eye. … There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies which came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War. … There can be no question that the great seal was directly inspired by these orders of the human Quest, and that it set forth the purpose for this nation. ” [2]

Author Robert Heironimus states: “America’s Great Seal may be seen as a blueprint for the elevation of consciousness. It says, in part, that we must transform ourselves before we can change the world, and that it is during the process of self-transformation that we can catch a glimpse of what part we are to play in national and global transformation.”

And what does this All-Seeing-Eye represent in occult doctrine?

Hieronimus further explains:

“… from the union of spirit and matter (the pyramid is made of stone, rock, and earth—and represents the unconscious. The capstone is made of an immaterial substance—light or spirit—and is conscious), a new being—a transformed being—is created. The seal’s reverse depicts a separation state in the separation of the eye the triangle.

The pyramid exemplifies the initiation stage … it is the house of initiation, in which the candidate confronts the world of darkness and enters the world of spirit. By passing the tests of the elements, the candidate is initiated into the realm of higher consciousness.” [3]

Namely, the initiation process is completed and a rebirth takes place, being integrated (or subsumed?) into the single eye atop the pyramid. This depends however, on who is at the apex of such a top-down transmutation. If current events are anything to go by, rather than serving others it seems we are being served up … As farmers seeking to extract the best from their cattle, the task is ambitious or as S.K. Bain states, it means: “taking hold of an artificially-accelerated, technologically and pharmacologically induced synthetic evolution of humanity” as an “unfinished pyramid” and directing the mass consciousness towards their own ideas of Order.

If we take a gentle stroll down below the bowels of the newly initiated One World Trade Centre we can see a more explicit occult symbolism which, given the nature of the site, is truly bizarre in its audacity.

The artworks, which have been installed all over Chambers Street/World Trade Centre station complex consist of over 300 different mosaic “Oculus” eyes, based upon actual human eyes taken from photographs. These artworks are directly below the WTC under Ground Zero.  According to one definition the “occult” derives its name from:

“… the circular sun and the crescent moon which when joined together form the word “oc.” ‘To occult’ means to eclipse, as when the moon obscures the sun during a total eclipse. ‘“Oc’ is also the root of the Latin word for eye – oculus. So the occult is the cult of the celestial sun moon eye whose wink darkens the day. Occult actually means hidden and is often represented by a closed eye, or a winking eye.” [4]

Knowing that the United States is undergoing a transformation into a surveillance state of unparalleled proportions one would imagine the last thing New York citizens would need is to have an artistic reminder of Big Brother eyes staring out at every juncture, least of all the slightest allusion to a satanic power symbol. But here they are in plain sight – yet more examples of diabolical satire.

The artists, Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel in singing their praises to nature and the universe created their centre piece work. It has an elliptical glass and stone mosaic floor, with a distinctly Egyptian eye at the centre of a vortex set against an image of New York City. It is pertinent that the Oculus floor mosaic, directly under the WTC, also depicts the Earth’s 7 continents around the periphery of the elliptical border, with the Eye of Horus in the centre of the vortex pulling all nations towards its centre. This is close as you are going to get to explicit One World Order iconography.

Apart from commissioning suitably occult-themed designs in  the “underworld” of this particular “New One World” centre, it seems that the the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is squandering a very great deal of cash on the project with estimates of over $3.7 billion as of February 2015 which makes it the most expensive train station ever. [5] That’s $2 billion over budget and seven years late.

Nothing like making a financial killing on the site of a mega-ritual killing …

As if that wasn’t enough then it seems our ceremonial psychopaths just love to play with innocence and ignorance by enacting their rituals in plain sight without a care in the world. One example of this took place at Ground Zero memorial service in 2002, filmed live by CBS News.

eye3

Still from CBS News Report. You can see the video here: The All Seeing Eye of Horus During the 911 Memorial Service at Ground Zero.

Photographer James Estrin took an interesting photo of the event from an 8th floor building across the street. Titled: “Silence and Dust, 9/11 Memorial, 2002,” he later recalled observing a wind blowing during the ceremony which brought up dust across the centre of the circle and served to accentuate the feeling he had that the place was “alive.” During Estrin’s January 2014 exhibition “Observance: Photographs of Spiritual Experience,” L’Oeil De la Photographie described the photograph as“… the most powerful (and chilling) image made of the event.”

That is certainly true but perhaps not for the reasons any of these participants realise.

It appears to be a blatant celebration of ritual sacrifice rather than remembrance. What else our we to believe after all this evidence when you have a congregation of rescue workers encircling a disc shaped like an eye? (You can see the photo here: www.loeildelaphotographie.com)

The ritual of 9/11 was inspired from occult signatures and their geometry which lies strewn across the modern landscape. Recall the US Department of Defence’s Pentagon for instance,  a 5-sided building, with 5 concentric rings and 5 above-ground floors (5-5-5), and a 5-acre central plaza. Remember the World Trade Centre as a site for 5’s ritual invocation site and fitting as a Number of Death. (9+5 = 14 = 1+4 = 5)

img_823_thumb.jpg

Sitting on the 77th Meridian West, with its height reaching 77 feet, the Pentagon site was ready for construction on September (9) 11, 1941. (9/11/41). Exactly 60 years later, hijacked American Airlines Flight 77—a Boeing 757-223—crashed into its western side. Flight 77’s fiery meeting with the Pentagon reflects the formula: 77= 7 x 11, “magical power in perfection.” “The number 77,” Bain informs us, “… is also a Masonic signal, the number of the Revenge of Lamech, ancestor of Hiram Abiff the Master Mason. Anton Szandor LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan and author of The Satanic Bible, lists the 77 “infernal names” of the “Gods and Goddesses called upon, which make up a large part of the occupancy of the Royal Palace of Hell.” [6] 

As discussed previously, the pentagram/pentacle  – which has a pentagon in its centre – has the reputation of being the most powerful symbol in the occult world used traditionally for invoking less than angelic spirits or “etheric intelligences.” It apparently acts to induce the manifestation of a portal given the right formula and bridge-making abilities. What this means is a disturbing Mega-ritual with: “a number of power combined with a symbol of power” which creates: “… a ceremonial vessel numerically consecrated and filled with living sacrifices violently penetrat[ing] … the inner sanctum of a five-ring jumbo-sized heart-of-a-pentagram in a spewing eruption of flame, glass, steel, flesh and blood … this diabolical ceremonial act was designed as a key to unlock the powers of hell (symbolically, or perhaps more literally than we care to imagine), unleashing them on the denizens of earth.” [7]

All of which tends to put 9/11 in a slightly different “light”… and brings us to the mysterious planes which were spotted on the morning of 9/11 above Washington DC.

Despite the fact that all flights were grounded on 9/11 there seems to have been up to four sightings of planes in restricted airspace. These included Word 31: airborne at 1327; a Venus 22: Gulfstream 3, airborne at 1316 on a scheduled flight to West Virginia; landing back at Andrews at 1354; Gofer 06: a Minnesota Air National Guard C130H, airborne at 1333 an observer to the aftermath of the impacts of AA 77 and UA 93. [8] This means that three planes were spotted in the vicinity of the Pentagon at the time.

The inevitable questions that come to mind are: 1) what were these planes doing in the air when airspace was restricted? 2) How could the Air Force get two military aircraft promptly into the air after the WTC attacks and at the same time fail to get any fighter planes to intercept the “hijacked” planes? A third question pops up when we consider there was a fourth aircraft in the skies. A B747, airborne at 1345; which eyewitnesses called the “white plane.”

03-tile_thumb.jpg

Why Did the World’s Most Advanced Electronics Warfare Plane Circle Over The White House on 9/11? By Mark H. Gaffney | image source: www.911blogger.com/

According to Mark Gaffney’s book The 9/11 Mystery Plane, the aircraft was a modified Boeing 747-200; an E-4B a state-of-the-art airborne command centre worth $800 million which had been painted white. Hi-tec functioning radar outside of FAA and NORAD was well taken care of if we are to believe Gaffney’s claims, which makes a mockery of the excuse that no one in the US defence and military knew that aircraft were targeting the most heavily defended military HQ on earth.

But there was something even more bizarre:

“…information obtained from the FAA in 2008 under a FOIA request, we learn the call sign of the doomsday plane circling in the skies above DC on 9/11… VENUS 77. That’s right. Yet another 77 (apparently you just can’t have too many), and, wouldn’t you know it, yet another pentagram reference: the successive inferior conjunctions of the planet Venus against the Zodiac form a pentagram, thus in occult thought this geometric form represents Venus, and Venus invokes the pentagram… just Google it. (The Romans designated the morning aspect of Venus as Lucifer, literally “Light-Bringer”: Venus = Lucifer.) Here again, the 77 and the pentagram/pentagon, in the air, combined together in magical union[9]

The first Flight 93 memorial site was another interesting example of occult satire. The Boeing 757 jet-airliner (which officially crashed and then completely disappeared into an abandoned mine-shaft while also managing to scatter debris over an eight mile radius) was commemorated with a large red crescent entitled: “The Crescent of Embrace” by Paul Murdoch architects. The design caused controversy to many within 9/11 research and the general US public for the simple fact that it is a direct reference to an Islamic red crescent. In fact, when you take the Red Crescent from the Tunisian flag and superimpose it over the Murdoch design the match is almost identical. Considering that the official story and commemoration is asking us to remember those that died at the hands of supposed Islamic terrorists, is this not an exercise in mockery? To top it all, one online researcher has proposed that this innocent little crescent is oriented towards Mecca. [10]

The project caused such an outcry it was abandoned in favour of a more nondescript, minimalist tribute. However, rather than a one off aberration, Islamic themes under scored with Kabbalistic-masonic overtones are all over the One World Trade Centre memorial site before and after the attacks.

The large metallic sculpture by German sculptor Fritz Koenig called “The Sphere” lies where the WTC North and South Towers once stood and: “… meant to symbolize world peace through world trade, … placed at the centre of a ring of fountains” and where other decorative touches [were] designed by trade centre architect Minoru Yamasaki to mimic the Grand Mosque of Mecca, Masjid al-Haram, in which The Sphere stood at the place of the Kaaba.” [11] Similarly, Scott Onstott shows us more visual connections when comparing the WTC 9/11 memorial site with Islamic monuments and religious iconography that is, as he mentions, so ironic when: “… the official story of 9/11 is of Islamic terrorists who destroyed what the architect who designed the WTC saw as an exquisite monument to Islam.” [12]

Those behind the occult ritual of 9/11 would no doubt be laughing there socks off at the esoteric humour of it all.

Furthermore, Onstott and his colleague Mark Gray discovered that: “… the pier that accesses the Statue of Liberty (SOL = Sun) on Liberty Island is oriented perfectly in line with the Kaaba in Mecca. The red line stretches from the torch of the SOL to the center of the black cube in Mecca.” With further numeric revelations yielding atop the SOL: “… a crown of 7 rays compared to the base star’s 11 points [which] matches the 7:11 proportions of the Great Pyramid from height to base.” [13] Add to this the significance of 666 as “… the precise distance between the Kaaba in Mecca and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem [as] 666 nautical miles,” it does make you wonder just when this vast “Game of Thrones” actually began.

A macabre and secret satire is very much part of false flag attacks. For instance, the 7/7 London false flag operation. In 2005, July 7th a London underground train at Kings Cross and a bus in Tavistock Square were blown up killing 52 people. It wasn’t only the fact that Tavistock Square is the heart of Anglo-American tradition of social engineering and mind control but still visible on the side of the wrecked bus was a promotional ad for a horror film which read: “Outright terror, bold and brilliant.” [14]

outrightterror_thumb.jpg7/7 Bombings Tavistock Sq, July 2005

Similarly, another repellent aspect of occult satire embedded in the 9/11 ritual came from the aftermath of September 11th and the million tons of material which had to be removed from Ground Zero and the surrounding area. As WTC steel and other key evidence was whisked away care of Mayor Rudy Giuliani, another nearby landfill site was appropriated for detective and forensic teams so that they could sort through the debris and begin identification of at least some of those who died in the attacks. Approximately one-third of the rubble found its way to the site and after 1.7 million hours, more than 1,600 personal effects were retrieved, over 4,000 human remains recovered and finally, 300 people were identified. The remaining material was buried in a 40 acre section of the landfill site. [15]

The name of this site?

“Fresh Kills Landfill” on Staten Island.

Police State Amerika IV: The New Brutality

 “All I kept hearing from him was, ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.'”

– Valencia Griffin, witness to the police assault of Eric Garner who died on the spot.


The 2014 unrest in Ferguson, Missouri led to serious riots and protests as a result of the apparent police execution of unarmed Michael Brown and subsequent acquittal of the police officer. The event highlighted a legion of other crimes committed against civilians including the death of Eric Garner, an asthmatic father who died as a result of a police choke-hold – an unwarranted assault, caused outrage prompting global protests against police brutality. [1]

This was only the latest in hundreds of similar crimes against Americans which continue to take place day after day. For all the cases that do reach the headlines there are many more that do not. SWAT Raids on family homes with no warnings, and sometimes no warrants are justified by the discredited war on drugs and the war on terror. Add to this the unnecessary and excessive use of the taser leading in many cases to death and verbal and physical harassment in the street. What is especially disturbing is in the majority cases it is children, the elderly and mentally ill who suffer these attacks. Police officers seldom receive a reprimand let alone a prosecution, mirroring the lack of accountability of our leaders and their agencies.

Hyper-aggression from police departments has risen exponentially since 9/11, with police on the street prone to violence against the American public as never before. A brief description of four cases from the many reports which reached the news in 2013-2014 is followed by a headline collection of the stories from the last few years. Hopefully, this will give readers a taste of the problem facing American society at this time.

We start with a report concerning 25-year-old paraplegic Nicholas Kincade who needs a motorised mobility scooter to get about and had the unfortunate luck to run into police officer Lt. Tom Davidson. Kincade was checked out by a group of  Indiana’s Lafayette police officers after reports surfaced that he was carrying a gun (He was not). After the discussion which took place on a suburban sidewalk, the young man accidentally grazed Davidson’s foot as he attempted to pass by. Kincade became the object of an extraordinary display of uncontrolled rage by the officer who, with both hands, pushed the young man out of his scooter and onto the road. A shocked Kincade protested his innocence claiming it was only an accident. The video of the incident can be viewed HERE.

To be fair to the Lafayette Police Department, the Mayor and Police Chief’s determined that Davidson should be fired citing  excessive force and behaviour unbecoming of a police officer. Although Davidson’s actions should have resulted in instant dismissal he was demoted, took a cut in pay and was allowed to keep his job due to the Civilian Review Board blocking the move. Ironic? Kincade thought so and decided to file suit alleging First and Fourth Amendment violations as well as violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  [3]

21-year-old Brenda Hardaway found out the hard way that even if you are pregnant it will not protect you from excessive police force. An unidentified Rochester police officer was seen trying to control Hardway after she came to the assistance of her brother who had been arrested for disorderly conduct. Hardaway did not comply with the officer and apparently resisted arrest. As the video from a bystander clearly shows, after several minutes into the fracas she becomes afraid and voices her concern: “Get off of me, you’re gonna kill my baby.” “I’m pregnant, I’m pregnant …” The response of the officer was to punch the back of the women’s head and not long after and with the weight of his body bearing down on the woman – slams her to the sidewalk, landing on her back. He places his forearm against the back of the woman’s neck and head, forcing her into the ground. Many onlookers were shocked at such an unnecessary display of force.

On the evening of May 11th 2014, Ron Hillstrom was experiencing a nervous breakdown. The 44 year-old man from University Place, Washington State was obviously delusional and in need of help. Instead he received quite the opposite. As family attorney Nathan Roberts states: “It appears that this [was] a guy who was reaching out for help, literally requesting help and instead of getting help was given a death sentence.”

Around 9:45 p.m., Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies approached Mr. Hillstrom. According to the many witnesses who were disturbed by the chaos outside, Hillstrom was running around as though panicked, believing that the police were out to “set him up”; or out to get him. Four deputies began to remorselessly taser and beat the victim whilst he pleaded for help. Police defended the murder of a vulnerable man by saying he was a threat and was resisting arrest, despite all the witnesses which came forward offering an entirely different story.


 “… then they started beating him. And they just weren’t done until he was dead. Bam, bam, bam. It was horrible. It was absolutely horrific.”

Hillstrom’s neighbour Ashley Patterson was unequivocal: “I knew last night they were gonna kill that man,” …  “You beat this man to death last night for no reason and we caught you. Period.” Unfortunately, no action was taken against the sheriff’s deputies in question. [5]

Another old man became the victim of psychopathic police officers out to have some fun.

In Homer, Louisiana on February 20th, 2009, a family was having a “cook-out”. Already harassed by police for suspected drug use, though no evidence suggested this was the case, 38-year-old Shaun Monroe was in attendance along with Bernard Monroe, Sr., and his wife Louise who were hosting the get-together with Shaun’s elderly parents. In fact, it was a pleasant family celebration with about 33 children present.

Shaun’s father, 73 year-old, retired electrical utility worker Bernard Monroe Sr. was no longer able to speak due to surgeries for throat cancer, but was enjoying himself as he sat in the shade watching his relatives. When Homer Police Department Officers Tim Cox and Joseph Henry marched into the family gathering with the intent of harassing Shaun Monroe as an “easy target for arrest,” the atmosphere, unsurprisingly, turned sour. Shaun became spooked and ran through the Monroe’s residence. The presence of the policeman was an unprovoked action without justification escalating the fear and tension. The New York Times describes what happened next:

Shaun Monroe burst out of the front door and was at the front gate when Officer Henry, who was in the yard, hit him with a Taser. Seconds later, Officer Cox reached the front screen door from the inside, witnesses said, as the elder Mr. Monroe was walking up the steps to the porch.

Officer Cox told investigators that the elder Mr. Monroe had picked up a pistol he kept on the porch and was aiming it at Officer Henry. All of the civilian witnesses say Mr. Monroe was carrying only a sports drink bottle.

But this is not in dispute: Mr. Cox shot Mr. Monroe seven times in the chest, side and back. Several witnesses said they saw a police officer later place the pistol next to Mr. Monroe’s body, but the police officers said that was because it had been moved when they were checking his wounds. [6]

And the Los Angeles Times:

The witnesses said the second officer [Joseph Henry] picked up a handgun that [Bernard] Monroe, an avid hunter, always kept in plain sight on the porch for protection. Using a latex glove, the officer grasped the gun by its handle, the witnesses said, and ordered everyone to back away. The next thing they said they saw was the gun next to Monroe’s body.

“I saw him pick up the gun off the porch,” Marcus Frazier said. “I said, ‘What are you doing?’ The cop told me, ‘Shut the hell up, you don’t know what you’re talking about.’”. [7]

Mr. Bernard Monroe Sr. was shot and killed by police officers who then planted “evidence” to cover up their own crimes.

In a deprived neighbourhood where black people are routinely harassed and stopped for no reason, it seems obvious that planting a gun on an old black man was the route Joseph Henry decided to take. Covering your own back by planting or making up the “evidence” on the spot is not uncommon. Along with assault and murder, police are getting away with it as the following summary of cases suggest:

Innocent pedestrian attacked by police, framed with charges, imprisoned for 15 months

“Police attempted to deliberately ruin a man’s life with a concocted story, yet no one faced justice.”

San Diego police raid strip club and take photos for ‘investigative purposes’

“One dancer says police photographed “every single one of my tattoos.”

“‘The guy didn’t seem to speak English,’ said a witness.”

“An unprovoked attack left a woman requiring facial reconstructive surgery.”

Atlantic City officers brutally beat man, release an attack dog to gnaw on his neck

“After bludgeoning, attacking, and mauling the man with a dog, officers stood around and laughed and took pictures.”

“My daughter died at the hospital while my son and I were chained to a bench.”

“The officers are then seen forcefully slamming the 5′-6″, 130 pound woman face-first to the hard ground, followed by a giving her a gratuitous knee to the back of her head, exacerbating her facial trauma. She can be heard screaming in pain as she is being pressed into the road by two male assailants.  Officer Ormerod continued to press her face into the ground with his arm.”

At the time of writing more and more cases are coming to light reinforcing how out of control US police are becoming. The above shows a still from a video which emerged revealing an execution-style killing. The victim was 50 year-old Walter Scott who was shot eight times as he ran away from police officer Michael Slager who has since been charged with his murder. Originally Slager lied that his gun went off in a struggle over his taser. (photo still from video)


Putting aside the politics of multiculturalism and its strengths and weaknesses, we can say that most crime appears to be  committed from the African-American demographic. One only has to look back at the recent history of the civil rights movement and the legacy of black slavery to understand that these seeds of oppression run deep. It is not the fact that ordinary people today must be held morally responsible for the state crimes of the past but we must be prepared to evaluate our institutions and recognise when those ponerological seeds are sprouting again and moreover, how these divisions are used against ALL of us, not just black Americans, Hispanics or Asians. One sector of society suffers, we all suffer because whether we like it or not, regardless of political and religious beliefs, we are all part of the human species connected and interrelated through our DNA, enmeshed in the vital energy of nations and the planet itself. In the end, intense pain of one part of the organism will manifest in another.

Similarly, a cancer in the form of a cluster of minority psychopaths weakening the integrity of a village, town, city, country and finally the biosphere itself, must be addressed. If not, the parasite will kill the host. This is the danger we are facing.

Let’s also not forget that movements such as “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) do not help heal the divisions or assist in seeking accountability for Police actions. In fact, such movements do the opposite because they are often part of government’s CoIntelpro, which is very possibly the case with the BLM movement. Take these salient facts from the Washington Post’s Marshall Project:

  • American police killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015.
  • More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks.
  • Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers
  • Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops.
  • In New York City alone, comprising 23 percent of the city’s population blacks “commit 75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime”.

Doesn’t quite square with the Black Lives Matter message does it?

And this is how divide and rule works: it brings out extremism on both sides where the complex nuances of reasoned discourse is shredded in the mainstream media and lost amongst the rising grief and anger of the families.  With the current 000.1% holding the lion’s share of the nation’s wealth and with racism and corruption within police, judiciary and federal agencies at an all time high, it is inevitable that social unrest will erupt. It should also be noted from the above that crying “racist!” against police merely trying to do their job also occurs as an easy escape route for those who have no social conscience and are merely seeking to profit from chaos. This is a concurrent adaptive behaviour and another symptom – but it is not remotely the cause.

Yet, let us also remember that the so-called “war on police” is also a nonsense. Crime against police is down to record lows  which does tarry with the FACT that minority groups are targeted with more frequency, end up in prison more often and are on the sharp end of severer punishment.

Witness the riots and looting which occurred in both white and black communities across the United Kingdom in 2011 and the rioting in Ferguson in 2014 and other states. This can be explained away as the understandable boiling over of frustration and anger at the clear disparity between those that have and those that have very little, and the power of violent protest to send a message. The riots in the UK also involved so-called middle-class youth who were better off in monetary terms than many. Thus it bespoke of a deeper malaise going well beyond material concerns; a profound loss of meaning which is still not addressed in our current social systems. Unfortunately, the message of this type of violent protest merely reinforced stereotypes of race and class, especially those of colour, quickly diluting the essential message: that there is real change desperately needed.

Fundamental racism is real yet so are dynamics on both sides of the endless binary divide who encourage it. The focus on keeping racism and division alive is the issue here. Our present institutions affect ALL people, regardless of race. Our global Establishment benefits from an excess of social movements and the kind of diversity which promotes cooperation and understanding yet, at the same time, implicitly reinforces separation by claiming exclusive “rights” at the expense of human rights.

In other words, psychopaths don’t discriminate – prey is prey. But they can have a lot of fun cleaving natural cooperation and creating tribal factions to work against each other. In this sense, African-American social movements  are seeking to redress the balance but missing the point that this is a problem of pathology which includes discrimination against ethnic groupings or race, but reflects a more hidden source of discrimination against normal majority of the human species from a minority of psychopaths, presently holding the reins of power. This is the core problem, a solution to which will naturally begin to resolve the sub-categories of racialism and so many other equally important “infections” of the human spirit.

If racism disappeared tomorrow, there would remain the problem of institutionalised psychopathy from which ALL entropic patterns originate. Social divides based on class, money and race will only be dissolved through education and cooperative experience, something that is socially-engineered not to occur. When we begin to look at the core problem that gives rise to all these iniquities, the various other rights and demands to be heard, understood and treated with dignity will begin to be addressed. Yet, it may mean some key collective shocks along the way so that humanity begins to recognise where and how it has been duped.

Social fragmentation and the normalisation of divided communities have deep-rooted socio-economic causes. The desperate loss of meaning and lack of a spiritual nourishment is also key. (By “spiritual” this does not mean “religious.”) There is no doubt that in the USA, African-American people bear the brunt of this burden at the present time. No race has a natural crime bell-curve. Such trends stem from a deep-seated malaise. More disturbing still, is the prison-security complex which had grown out of the pain of a society lost in inculcated pathology. The mentally ill and those stricken by poverty and economic hardship are now a profitable commodity for corporatists. Brutalisation of the American people is fertile ground for instigating new Establishment projects, after all.

On the other side of the coin is how different cultural groups and minorities feeling victimised react to the ponerisation process. After all, as a Kenyan friend of mine recently reminded me: “Black folks are some of the most racist people I know.” A sweeping statement for sure, but the concept of taking on the oppressors’ methods for divide and rule is something to acknowledge since we are all prone to hypocrisy on a smaller scale, often unconsciously. The African-American community has to face the danger of relying on the victim mentality and using it as a political tool where every crime is racially motivated. When a state tool like the police is so obviously loaded against people of colour it is tempting to assume that ALL cases can be categorised under this banner. The same dynamic has allowed the Jewish tribe to rule by victim-hood; an adapted cultural Marxism and political correctness which has provided an industry of entitlement out of all proportion; defying constructive criticism as it uses the historic shield of anti-Semitism to protect and elevate tribal privileges and a “cognitive elite” (recently updated in this context by Gilad Atzmon). Tribal divisions and “rights” can also be warped into further isolated units of aggression that lose sight of the core problem: normal humanity subjugated and oppressed by psychopaths. This has to be reiterated again and again.


 “Americans are locked up for crimes — from writing bad checks to using drugs — that would rarely produce prison sentences in other countries. […] The United States … has 751 people in prison or jail for every 100,000 in population. (If you count only adults, one in 100 Americans is locked up.) The median among all nations is about 125, roughly a sixth of the American rate.”

– ‘U.S. prison population dwarfs that of other nations,’ New York Times


Over the last two decades various statistical studies and reports have all come to roughly the same conclusion: there is a serious race disparity regarding crime and incarceration with the prison-security complex booming as a result. One 2012 research study drawn from 58,000 federal criminal cases found that this disparity between sentencing of blacks and whites was so severe that African-American prison time was: “… almost 60% longer” than it is for Caucasians. M. Marit Rehavi of the University of British Columbia and Sonja B. Starr, who teach at criminal law at the University of Michigan Law School describe the reasons for racial disparities in this way:  “in a single prosecutorial decision: whether to file a charge carrying a mandatory minimum sentence … Black men were on average more than twice as likely to face a mandatory minimum charge as white men were, holding arrest offense as well as age and location constant.”

The report further concluded that disparities can be explained by three factors:

  1. the original arrest offense,
  2. the defendant’s criminal history,
  3. and the prosecutor’s initial choice of charges. [8]

And these three factors create a feedback loop that is almost unbreakable. And it’s designed that way.

The Centre for American Progress offered these statistical conclusions also from 3 years ago to ponder: 


  1. While people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned.
  2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.
  3. Students of color face harsher punishments in school than their white peers, leading to a higher number of youth of color incarcerated.
  4. According to recent data by the Department of Education, African American students are arrested far more often than their white classmates.
  5. African American youth have higher rates of juvenile incarceration and are more likely to be sentenced to adult prison.
  6. As the number of women incarcerated has increased by 800 percent over the last three decades, women of color have been disproportionately represented.
  7. The war on drugs has been waged primarily in communities of color where people of color are more likely to receive higher offenses.
  8. Once convicted, black offenders receive longer sentences compared to white offenders.
  9. Voter laws that prohibit people with felony convictions to vote disproportionately impact men of color.
  10. Studies have shown that people of color face disparities in wage trajectory following release from prison.  [9]

(This is an edited summary for brevity. Go here for the full version)


When we understand that the prison-security complex demands a steady stream of “criminals” to support a private industry worth billions, it begins to make horrible sense.  With the help of expensive lobbying groups and corrupt politicians the prison-security sector is set to explode. The largest for-profit prison and immigration detention facilities in the US is Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). It made $300 million in 2013 with an overall revenue at $1.7 billion. Do you know how those profits were paid for? By the American tax payer through government contracts.  [10] incratesAnd Europe is set to follow America’s lead.

If that sends you reeling, the latest report encompassing a wide constellation of studies is provided by the ACLU. They have distilled a high volume of information into a digestible infographic which certainly makes interesting reading. In summary: Incarceration can actually cause more crime. (oh, the shock).

Probation recidivism rates fell by 12% as opposed to an increase of 21% from time in prison.  Longer prison sentences also increased recidivism by 3% and many US states after cutting incarceration have seen a significant decrease in crime. For example, New Hampshire, which favours private prisons came in at a 10% increase with a parallel rise in violent crime at 17%. Property crime reached a 13% increase.In comparison, Massachusetts lowered its incarceration rate by 15% and achieved a 16% reduction in violent crime and an 18% drop in property crime. The patterns are the same for other states showing even more dramatic differences.


 “As more and more government functions get privatized, states become pay-to-play paradises, in which both political contributions and contracts for friends and relatives become a quid pro quo for getting government business. Are the corporations capturing the politicians, or the politicians capturing the corporations?”

– Prisons, Privatization, Patronage’ New York Times


This is yet another fleecing of the taxpayer who is helping government and their out-sourced cartels make massive profits by increasing the perpetrators and the victims of crime in an endless cycle. But what do you know? Crime has actually been decreasing steadily for decades, as many studies have highlighted. Much as the FBI and law enforcement in general would like us to forget this fact, the ACLU puts the figures at a 50% decline nationwide since 1990. So, here we have a natural expression of human equilibrium trying to find its way out of all the conflict, and psychopaths are trying to turn it around in virtually every sector in society. The time is approaching when it will not be just black or Hispanic peoples getting it the neck.

There is a collective time-bomb that will have repercussions for us all.

Democracy in Retreat: US ranks 46th in the world for civil liberties |Courtesy of Mark Rice from rankingamerica.wordpress.com

On October 21st 2011, Keith Timmerman reported in the online magazine The Daily Caller the Obama administration’s policy of removing references to Islam in terror training manuals and expanding the definition to encompass a large proportion of the American population. If we have learned anything from history it is that demonisation precedes persecution. Official US government documents obtained by Judicial Watch through Freedom of Information requests detail what the US government considers to be “extremist” or “potential terrorist” beliefs and which therefore, require special attention.

In other words, pretty much everyone who isn’t waving an American flag and praising the government.

We can see that the list is very broad indeed, redefining the terrorist towards the dissident, activist and indeed, anyone exercising their right to free speech. Notice too, that these government alerts are bi-partisan – left and right is meaningless when it comes to profiling the population. In true Orwellian style, anything that lies outside what the government considers “normal” is characterised as a threat.

Such a blanket paranoia and authoritarianism means that many federal agencies and Justice departments willingly apply these strictures. This says something about the nature of those employed and those who decide they cannot work in the job they used to love. People work within the system under the illusion that they can change it or decide to turn a blind eye in favour of financial security or just give up and acquiesce to peer pressure. Alternatively, those lawyers, advocates, police-officers and soldiers who cannot stand it anymore vacate their posts and individuals aligned to various degrees of pathology gradually fill their places, thus contributing further to a psychologically compromised State. These are the familiar patterns of pathocracies using the cover of the war on drugs, war on terror, constant surveillance and the prison-security complex.

Nonetheless, there are surely many cops and military men and women out there with conscience. Since the level of corruption and instinctive deference to authority is so strong it is going to be more difficult for these individuals to speak out. It will take great courage. They need to be given the support from activist groups and whistleblowing organisations so that they can do so, or else there will be little chance to take action in the future.

A Police State has arrived and it is going to get worse very soon. This isn’t pessimism – it is simply reading the writing on the wall, and interpreting the numerous other warnings from those who have tried to warn us. Such writing fades all too easily in our ever so distracted consciousness. Recall the last words of Eric Garner before he was choked to death by a policeman: ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.'” It was also a metaphor for the human race – above colour, race or creed – that is being slowly crushed by the jackboot of psychopaths whom we have allowed to create the mechanisms through which they may gain positions of power. It doesn’t matter if it is the President of the United States or the President of your local Neighbourhood Council – the infection is the same. We literally cannot breathe, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Poor Eric Garner’s death can be likened to a collective symbolism – a potent archetype of sacrifice – whether the victims of the American police state, the Palestinians in Gaza or the victims of ISIL in Iraq – they serve to alert us to the nature of our world, acting as as a profound wake-up call to resist in the name of conscience. 

Let’s hope we can heed their sacrifice and lend our voice in whatever way we can. 

Which brings us back to the events of 9/11 – the day the world changed.

Now that we have touched on the extent to which the US State is gradually declaring war on its inhabitants, we will return to how the coup d’etat of 9/11 which enabled such a rapid descent to take place. The more people can begin to make the step towards understanding what really took place on that day the more all the denials, repressions and lies can be exorcised and driven into the light.

Police State Amerika III: “Non-Lethal” Tasers

  “In a police state, there is no need for judges, juries or courts of law, because the police act as judge, jury and law, and their version of justice is one-sided, delivered at the end of a gun, taser or riot stick,”

– attorney and author John W. Whitehead


As a back up to the riot police’s favourite tactic of pepper spraying you in the face, the so-called “non-lethal weapon” of choice marketed for more than 11,000 law enforcement agencies – is the taser. Under the umbrella term for Conducted Energy Devices (CEDs) this electro-shock gun with targeting laser has the capacity to inflict up to 50,000 volt by firing two small darts attached to wires. With a maximum reach of 35ft, it paralyses the central nervous system and can be used to “incapacitate” any unsuspecting driver, homeowner, pedestrian or protestor. 

Although marketed by Taser manufacturers as a much safer choice to presumably gunning down the public (which still occurs with greater and greater frequency) the net result of this mass deployment has been the replacement of due caution and sensible policing with a policy of tasing first and asking questions later. More worryingly still, Amnesty International found that unarmed suspects bore the brunt of tasers, with 36% of individuals tased merely for the crime of “verbal non-compliance.” Where the officers’ lives might be in danger from a deadly assault the average was only 3% of cases. [1] Even though you are well within your rights not to give your name or identity if you are lawfully going about your business, the nature of policing is breaking with tradition in alarming ways.

Alongside the taser, pepper spray is the preferred choice at peaceful protests: “Former campus officer John Pike, the “Pepper Spray Cop,” received $8,000 more in workers’ compensation pay than peaceful protesters he sprayed.” Source: ‘Occupy Victims Burned By Settlement For Pepper-Spray Cop’ By Katie Rucke, Mint Press News.

Since over 500 people have died in taser-related incidents since 2001 and others having suffered serious injuries, it suggests that tasers are very far from “non-lethal”. [2] A large proportion of cases also involve those with health problems already present, thus exacerbated the likelihood of injury or death. A 2008 study by UCSF and cited in the Journal of American Cardiology found: “… a sixfold increase in sudden deaths during the first year of taser use – amounting to nearly 6 deaths per 100,000 arrests.” [3]

hc-ed-police-taser-stun-gun-deaths-call-for-more-controls-20150311Taser companies pay lip-service to the safety that is said to be built in to the guns. There is indeed a button on all models which, when lightly pressed gives a five second burst ostensibly designed to limit excessive use. However, this “tool” is being routinely abused. It has been shown that it’s far more expedient in the minds of some police to hold down that button and deliver the maximum burst. Yet, because the signs of abuse are difficult to locate it raises serious questions not only of basic human rights but police accountability. Even more troubling is the decision by Taser International to market the sale of modified tasers to the general public.

It seems we can seek to ban e-cigarettes but having a taser in your handbag is apparently fine.

When reviewing the following cases where the public have obviously been victimised by the police, it is very hard not to come away thinking that many officers are itching to use their tasers at every opportunity – usually against the most vulnerable – rather than actually do their job properly. Moreover, when circumstances point to excessive use of tasers, even in cases of death, police officers are very rarely prosecuted or disciplined repeating the same pattern of closed ranks in law enforcement as a whole. In exactly the same vein as no-knock raids, it matters little whether you are elderly, mentally impaired, pregnant or a child – the taser appears to be a reflex-response from a culture saturated in fear. Or else, it is simply a whole lot of fun for your resident psychopathic policeman who appears to use it as cat would its prey before killing it. And as the ACLU like to remind us when engaging in a tense police intimidation:

“You have the right to refuse to consent to a search of yourself, your car or your home. – If you are not under arrest, you have the right to calmly leave.” [4]

Sadly, knowing your rights is no protection against some police officers.

In March 2015, Connecticut police were once again in the headlines when two of their officers from Branford County shot David Werblow with a taser for refusing to leave his car. Consistent with taser-related deaths where individuals have mental disability or addiction problems (or both) Werblow was not actively resisting arrest. Yet, he was tased anyway. According to the local Hartford Courant quoting the police report: “A Branford Police Officer successfully deployed his department issued TASER to gain control of Werblow,” … “Officers were able to remove Werblow from the vehicle and place him in handcuffs.” [5]

Gaining control of individuals, regardless of their civil liberties or constitutional rights appears to be the overriding priority in these cases, where the police officers’ willfulness determines the outcome of such cases. Since officers are the ones with tasers and firearms we know how the statistical pattern will likely play out.

mn_bart07_ph3_ta_0499627869_par.jpgBack in 2011, cases like these went through the roof, with the elderly and mentally ill as victims of hyper-aggressive policing. Take two separate incidents in different states: one suffering from dementia and another from Alzhiemer’s disease.

Albert Flowers, then 66 years old, was involved in a dispute. Police officer Derek Middendorf from Melbourne, Florida had been called to the scene primed with information that Flowers had in his possession a small pocket-knife and was in an angry state of mind. When the officer arrived, Flowers slowly approached him and when a few feet away the burly Middendorf suddenly ran towards him delivering a full kick to the old man’s chest causing him to fly backwards collapsing on the ground – as one might expect.  If that wasn’t enough, the policeman pounced on Flowers punching him repeatedly about the head with the old man weakly trying to defend himself. Turning him onto his stomach the officer continued to rain down blows on his head and abdomen. With Flowers still lying face down in the road and Middendorf straddling his back, a second officer approached from the nearby police cruiser and proceeded to taser the old man in the face.

Officer Middendorf had disabled the in-car dash cam before exiting his vehicle so it was clear what he had in mind and did not want it recorded. The information was nonetheless extracted from the hard drive. According to the police report “Flowers walked towards him in an aggressive manner” and that he “refused to stop at a safe distance.” This was the initial reason for arresting Flowers and charging him with assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

Middendorf received a reprimand and all charges were dropped against Albert Flowers while was in hospital recovering from his injuries. [6]

The next senior citizen to become victim of police aggression was 67 year-old Alzheimer’s patient Dolores Seyfried and her husband David. In a bizarre interpretation of the code to “serve and protect”, City of Lewisville Police Department, Dallas physically and emotionally abused the couple in a fashion astonishing for its brutality.

On May 29th 2013, Dolores Seyfried had become agitated with her husband David and held a 4-5 five-inch letter opener in her hand. The Dallas Alzheimer’s Association was contacted by Mr. Seyfriend and in a response that mirrored the kind of reflex action of the CPS, promptly called the police without his consent. The couple were in the backyard to their house when police officers George Reed and Sgt. Courtney Letalien arrived. Instead of maintaining a sensitive distance and allowing David the time to calm his wife down – something he had no doubt done many times before –  Letalien  immediately tried to remove David from the vicinity.  He repeatedly tried to explain to the officers that he could defuse the situation and calm her down, but the policemen had other ideas. It was clear from lawsuit reports that Mr. Seyfried was being maneuvered to the front of the house so that he did not witness the forced disarming and subjugation of his wife.

As David was attempting to reason with Letalien it was then that he heard Officer Reed firing his taser at Dolores. As she remained standing he then shot at her three times with an orange non-lethal shotgun, which uses rubber bullets. Now on the ground, officer Reed attempted to cuff Mrs. Seyfried, stepping on her wrist to do so, breaking it in two places. Just for good measure he tased her a second time, imagining she was resisting arrest. Dolores also received a wound to her head which required seventeen stitches. As if this weren’t enough, ignoring Mr. Seyfried’s protests, the police then conducted a warrantless search of their premises violating their Fourth Amendment rights. The final insult was to come, however.

According to Dallas Courthouse News:

“While David continued to shout his disapproval at the officers, he was told that they ‘saved his ass today,'” the complaint states. Reed then called the Dallas Alzheimer’s Association and reported that David could not take care of Delores, David says. “This action was unnecessary and … it was done with actual malice,” David says. [7]

David Seyfried sought “punitive damages for excessive force and wrongful search and seizure.” At the time of writing it is not known if he was successful in that claim.

As we saw in the last post, being elderly or having a neurological disorder is no protection against some members of the police force. It would seem more psychopathic-minded individuals gain intense satisfaction from torturing the vulnerable. All too frequently their masks slip to reveal their true nature. Using a taser on someone who is African-American, hand and ankle-cuffed and who is mentally ill was obviously a lot of fun for Chicago jailers. It also led to the death of Philip Coleman.

A University of Chicago graduate and masters graduate of UIC, Coleman had never been in trouble and was a model citizen. On December 12, 2012, all that changed and he suffered a nervous breakdown, striking his mother and exhibiting symptoms of delusion. When police arrived it was obvious that Coleman was not in control of his senses, uttering nonsense, bleeding from his mouth and generally showing signs of distress. His father, Percy Coleman, wanted to see his son taken to hospital immediately. Jail was not the place for him. The police disagreed, stating: “We do not do hospitals, we do jail.”  [8] All he could do was to try and mitigate the end result by attempting to calm down both the police and his son. According to a WYWLAS Radio network the situation became more volatile as Coleman become more incoherent and unstable: 

An officer pulled his gun and “I got in front of my son and said ‘You are not going to shoot him,’” Coleman said. “I told him, ‘How are you going to give him orders when he don’t understand?’”

He said he calmed his son down, but then an officer shouted at his son, agitating him. Coleman said he rushed his son and took him down and got a neighbor to sit on Philip so they could hold him down until police handcuffed him. [9]

It was when Coleman was in jail that the torture started. He was awoken at night and deliberately tased. In the morning as he was transferred to County Hospital he was again tased and once more on arrival at the hospital. In fact, according to CBS Chicago News, Coleman was tased 16 times in 22 hours. [10]

A police station video allegedly shows six officers entered Coleman’s cell as he lay sleeping and used a TASER on him three times after they told him to stand up. Attorney Ed Fox filed a lawsuit for the Coleman family and is fighting to get the video released. He says after the TASER was used on Coleman the officers reacted. “Some of them were laughing,” Fox says. “He was treated like an animal.” [11]

His father, former Chicago Housing Authority police chief Percy Coleman filed suit against the police in December 2012, the results of which are still pending.

The cases just keep coming in, all of which follow the same pattern of total disregard, even contempt for human life and sensibility:

  • A family who sought help for their son Michael who was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia called the police. Officers tased the young man until the battery was drained and when the victim tried to escape they shot at him repeatedly until dead. “My son did not deserve 11 shots to his head, and we have to find out from the media how many times he was shot in that bathroom. … All that we’re asking is that someone recognizes what we recognize. That was brutality at its finest in that bathroom that day,” -mother, Kimberly Blair-Olaniyi.”  [12]
  • Electric shocks and clubs were used by a group of six policemen on an unarmed, homeless man leading to his death. Kelly Thomas was known to the area and diagnosed as schizophrenic. He was not prone to violence. “See my fists, they’re going to f*** you up,” said one of the officers sliding his hands into rubber gloves.” The last words of Thomas before lapsing into a coma and later death were: ‘Please sir,’ ‘I’m  sorry,’ ‘I can’t breathe.’” The police officers responsible  walked free.  [13]
  • 44 year old Michael Angel Ruizd had climbed onto the roof of his apartment and was behaving erratically. When Phoenix police arrived he was tased several times on the roof before consenting to come down. After giving himself up, he dropped down to the balcony and was immediately placed in a choke-hold by an officer who was then joined by others. With no aggression shown by Michael and with no history of violence he was tased once again while still in a choke-hold as they descended the adjoining staircase. By the time they got to the ground, he was dead. “Witnesses say they could audibly hear the lifeless man’s skull thumping across the staircase.”   [14]
  • Police tased and arrested father Ryan Miller who was trying to save his 3-year-old son, Riley from a house fire. A city police officer stunned Riley’s stepfather Ryan Miller with a Taser gun three times as he tried to enter the burning house. “He tried to get back in the house to get the baby,” … “They took my son to jail because he tried to save his son.”- Gandmother Lori Miller  […] “It’s just heartless. How could they be so heartless?” … “And while they all just stood around and waited for the fire department, what kind of police officer wouldn’t try and save a three year old burning in a house?” – Emily Miller, sister-in-law. [15]
  • A 10-year-old boy who only weighed 42 kg was tased by police at a day care centre by two Indiana policeman because he was “out of control.”  [16]

stungun1Still from Prime News


“What this means is that all of us need to be very afraid now,” “Its carte blanche for police officers everywhere to kill us, beat us, whatever they want. It has been proven right here today that they’ll get away with it.”

Ron Thomas, father of Kelly Thomas beaten and tased to death by LAPD police officers.


In one sense, the  problem is not so much the tool itself, though there are plenty of arguments to suggest that its use is inappropriate. Rather, it is a large proportion of police officers themselves who pose a threat to the public. The irony is that your local cop has pledged an oath to serve the public yet the National Safety Council tells us you are 9 times more likely to die at the hands of a US law enforcement then any terrorist – with or without a taser. [17] Another statistic underscores the growing realisation that we have more to fear from law enforcement then any terrorist or criminal as more than 5,000 American citizens have been killed by police since 9/11. [18]  What’s the argument? Guns are not the problem it’s the mind behind the weapon. The same could undoubtedly be said about both the militarisation of police forces. With pathological individuals gravitating toward avenues which provide an opportunity to act as state enforcers they are liable to turn a baby’s rattle into a lethal weapon, let alone a taser.

The situation is no better in Europe, in particular the United Kingdom. Benevolence shone through the UK courts in 2007 when legislation permitted tasers to be against the under 18’s. Statistics from 2011show that 323 victims of tasers for that year equates to one child a day tased by police, some as young as 11 years-old. [19] As we have seen, this pales in comparison to the US, where age at both ends of the spectrum is no protection against state control.  Conforming to police officers’ requests, unreasonable or not, is the primary objective as befitting the emergence of Pathocracy. Civilian rights are simply not relevant.

Conformity is the prime directive.

Police State Amerika II: No-Knock Raids

“Police violently broke in on a couple of men watching television, exploded concussion grenades, and shot one man roughly a second after entry. The fatal, under-investigated raid yielded no arrests and led to the shooter being named “Officer of the Year.” All because someone was suspected of getting high without government permission.”

– Police State USA


During the April 2013 Boston Bombings and the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Boston suburbia was effectively in lock-down with thousands of National Guard troops, FBI and other federal agents, state and local police, all creating virtual martial law in a matter of hours. Units conducted house to house searches, often heavily armed whilst residents were told to stay inside with their doors locked and not open them to anyone but identified police officers. This was part of an official order called “shelter in place” enacted by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and which was gradually extended over 100 square miles of the Boston metropolitan area, housing over 1 million people. Local reporters compared the scene to videos of US-occupied Baghdad.  [1]

It seems this was a taste of what was to come. With an operation such as this, following hot on the heels of a so-called terrorist attacks with a tragic loss of life, one might say that such martial law was justified in order to catch the perpetrators. Yet, even if we were to discard evidence that the Tasarnaev brothers were set up, the same patterns of deception found similar to every false flag operation, we would surely have to arrive at the conclusion that this was an utterly over-the-top response. What this military deployment did achieve, was to stoke the fear of authority and its capabilities. There has never been a more dangerous time to be poor, elderly or the recipient of SWAT teams’ persistent encroachment into civilian life. For every one of these examples – whether black, white, Army veteran, elderly man or woman, babies, children or the mentally disabled – there are hundreds of similar cases.

SWAT raids are truly terrifying for those unfortunate enough to experiences them. Arriving in armoured personnel carriers, usually in the dead of night or early morning, a team of 8-10 heavily armed, andrenalin-pumped young men break down your door, and/or smash your windows, hurl incendiary devices into the interior regardless of the presence of children or elderly folk and frequently move to kill your pets.  Whilst securing the house and if you are not dead already, you are made to lie face down in blood and glass with your arms tied behind your back. Armour-clad soldiers carrying sub-machine guns shout at you to remain where you are, often during the aftermath of a violent physical assault. It is not uncommon for SWAT members to brutalise homeowners in their search for suspects.

But what of the individual cases? How far has this phenomena encroached into everyday American lives?

“Not having proper security on your Wi-Fi router can lead to a SWAT team raid on your house, as one family in Evansville, Indiana, discovered. Louise Milan learned this the hard way when SWAT officers smashed through her door and threw flash-bang grenades into her house in a case that is getting attention again because of court action this month in a lawsuit.” – David Jennings, Off the Grid News, August 2014.

We will start off this brief survey with a tragedy that occurred in 2008, when homeowner Ronald Terebesi was relaxing in his living room with friend, 33-year-old Gonzalo Guizan. The peace was shattered by a nine man SWAT team with a “no-knock search warrant for narcotics”. After police had tossed in three flash-bang grenades through the windows the team battered down the door and after almost 2 seconds inside Mr. Guizan had been shot six times and Terebesi hit with a rifle butt and pinned to the floor. The rest of the team trashed the house looking for concealed drugs.

It became apparent that the SWAT team had burst in so quickly that a grenade denoted in close proximity to the officers causing its fragments to hit Officer Sweeney who claimied he’d been hit, therey firing a volley of bullets into Guizan. According to later testimonies by Sweeny, Terebesi and Guizan had tried to attack him despite the absence of any corroborating evidence. Since the whole event lasted less around 2 seconds it seems like a feeble allegation to cover up incompetence. The Connecticut Post reported attorney for Terebesi Gary Mastronardi stating: “There is undisputed evidence Guizan and Terebesi were huddled in a corner when police shot,” which makes Sweeney’s claims even more unlikely.

Neither man had criminal records. Their only “crime” was to enjoy a small quantity of drugs for personal use, but it was enough to cause a SWAT team to burst into their own home, murder one man and assault another. Terebesi is still seeking compensation for “emotional suffering” while Guizan’s family received a $3.5 million pay out in February 2013.  [2]


“It looked like the Russian army had approached,” … “This was overkill.”

neighbor of Terebsi, Drew Clark


If a police team is out and about and your house has been targeted – prepare to pray.

In 2013, an 80 year-old retiree barely had time to do that before being shot six times as he lay in his bed. The reason? Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department deputies thought they could smell a meth lab. In fact, when no meth operation was found they decided to clutch at the fact that a small quantity of marijuana was discovered in another part of the property. A $50 million civil lawsuit was served by the widow Tonya Pate and her attorney James Bergener. County sheriffs say that the deceased, Eugene Mallory had raised a gun at deputies whilst his wife is adamant that her husband, a former engineer at Lockheed Martin would never have taken such action. “He was shot in his bed before there was any warning given,” Bergener said. [3]

From an old age pensioner to a mentally disabled youth found dead after strong-arm tactics by police officers.

Robert Ethan Saylor was found to have suffered a fractured throat cartilage after being suffocated to death by police officers who sought to remove him from a cinema. Saylor, who had Downs Syndrome and a low IQ had thoroughly enjoyed the film he had been watching and wanted a repeat performance. Saylor and his caretaker did not have enough money and since he did not understand the concept of tickets, he became upset and refused to leave. Though the caretaker pleaded for patience and warned that he was very sensitive to being touched, in the end police moved in. As he was wrestled to the ground not understanding what was going on, there were reports from witnesses that officers told Saylor that he was going to jail, as he struggled in obvious pain. He last words were: “Mommy! It hurt!” as he died of asphyxiation.  [4]

Although the death was ruled a homicide, the 3 police deputies in question received no criminal charges and remained on active duty. They were however, enrolled on a training class to learn how to interact with people with low intelligence. Somehow such a move won’t be much consolation for Saylor’s mother nor will it make the slightest difference to the police in question.

Iraq veterans are also at risk.

We go back a few years to May 5, 2011 and the case of Jose Guerena. The former marine was shot and killed by SWAT team members when they raided his house.

After working the night shift at the local copper mine he and his wife were awakened by voices and loud noises. Assuming that there were intruders he retrieved his rifle and hid his wife Vanessa and his 4-year old son in the closet. He then checked the house. As he stood in the hallway the SWAT team fired off 71 rounds and hit Guerena 22 times. His wife and child were unharmed. No drugs were found.

dreamstime_m_40957630© Zabelin | Dreamstime.com – SWAT Team Photo

Fancy meeting these guys in your living room? Your friendly neighbourhood SWAT team on a street or home near you.

By all accounts, Guerena had no idea that this was the police, nor did he realise that the detonation of concussion grenades in their back yard were the cause of his awakening. Seconds before an armoured truck had arrived in their front yard and a SWAT team was already preparing to break down his door. To compound the tragedy, as he lay  bleeding in the hallway, it appears the police did everything they could to prevent ambulance services from reaching Guerena. According to an ABC News report his wife claimed she called 9-1-1 for an ambulance yet it was over one hour 14 minutes before any paramedics could get to Guerena. This was due to the evacuation of neighbouring houses and the deployment of two robotic drones to check the house interior. One wasn’t enough it seems. The clock ticked by. After that, the bomb squad was called in and the deployment of robotic scouts was set in motion. Only then did the SWAT team re-enter the house to sweep the rooms. By this time, Jose Guerena had bled to death. Deputy Tracy Suitt on behalf of the The Pima County Sheriff’s Department strongly believed: “… the events of May 5, 2011, were unfortunate and tragic, but the officers performed that day in accordance with their training and nationally recognized standards…”.  [5]

These “Nationally recognised standards” were employed with the shooting of two members of Vanessa Guerena’s sister-in-law’s family, Cynthia and Manny Orozco, last year. A small bag of pot was discovered along with $94,000. Though members of the family were allegedly involved with the smuggling of marijuana, such a case requires due diligence and extreme caution which was clearly not the case here. Raids with trigger-happy teams of paramilitary men storming suburbia is common place. Once again, no reprimands or arrests were forthcoming. The Guerena family proceeded with a civil lawsuit and settled at $3.4 million dollars. It seems one can survive two tours in Iraq but not your own law enforcement.

Next in line for raid treatment were two grand-parents shot by DEA agents in their own homes, one fatally and within one month of each other.

In August 2014, New Hampshire Grandmother Lilian Alonzo was looking after her grandchildren aged, 1, 4 and 10 years old. At around 7.00pm the door was opened by a family member and the DEA raided the third story apartment looking for drugs. Alonzo was fired at twice by an agent and was hit in the torso by one of the bullets. The Grandmother’s son later told reporters that all she had been attempting to do was to pick up the baby, a natural reaction one might think when a group of strangers barge into your home. Ms. Alonso had no criminal or previous arrest record and was not arrested or charged following the raid.

Why was this grandmother put in hospital?

It was apparently part of a series of 13 raids carried out: “… to investigate several people allegedly selling prescription painkillers without government authorization.” [6]

Painkillers.

Nor is this an isolated incident. From one of many incidences, Three people were killed and four wounded in October 2013 when yet another no-knock raid turned to tragedy. Reason? The illegal distribution of prescription pills.

From tracking those dastardly crimes of painkiller users, to taking the word of a meth addict and thief in order to raid a Grandfathers home, unannounced.

In September 2014, David Hooks, 59, was awakened by his wife who said the thieves who had earlier stolen their SUV were back. Hooks picked up his gun in order to protect his wife and his home from further intruders. Little did he know that Rodney Garrett had stolen their vehicle, the same man who had tipped off the police that he had seen illegal drugs on the Hooks’ property. Meanwhile, a SWAT team of sheriff deputies broke down the door, firing sixteen shots leaving David Hooks dead. No drugs were found. According to the widow’s lawyer, the Sheriff’s Department then “mislead the public” about the shooting and raid. [7]

Finally, the killing of a 7 year-old girl in a raid by the Detroit Police Department in May, 2010.

Looking for a wanted man on the evening of May 16, 2010, the Detroit Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) were preparing for a dawn no-knock raid on a duplex where the man was said to live. The house having been under close surveillance throughout the day, the police nonetheless disregarded any safety measures for the likelihood of children being present at the address, even though children’s toys were littered around the front of the residence. With a warrant to arrest Chauncey Owens and armed with MP5 sub-machine guns and even a Reality TV crew, the SRT team approached the house.

A pedestrian out walking his dog was held back by police and unnecessarily pinned to the ground with police boots on his neck and back. (Gosh, those brave, virile policeman putting on a real show for reality TV). Despite this, he repeatedly told officers that there were children in the house. Bizarrely, officers broke into two locations: the suspect’s and the next door neighbour’s downstairs apartment. Windows were smashed, a concussion grenade thrown which lit up the porch. The door was kicked down and after just over 30 seconds from the start of the raid, a gunshot was heard and Aiyana Stanley-Jones lay dead from a bullet through he neck. It took only six seconds for the girl to be killed from the moment the police entered the home.


 “They blew my granddaughter’s brains out,” …  “They killed her right before my eyes. I watched the light go out of her eyes.”

Ms. Mertilla Jones, Grandmother of  Aiyana Stanley-Jones


She had been sleeping on a couch next to her Grandmother Mertilla Jones who had dived to the floor when the grenade had hit the couch, scorching it in the process. It is then that the police began to lie about the events of that early morning preferring to blame the Grandmother by saying that the man responsible for discharging his weapon – 37-year-old Officer Joseph Weekley – had lost control of his weapon due to contact with Ms. Jones whom, he said, had tried to grab the gun. The Grandmother’s story is the exact opposite to the officer’s and much more believable. She explained that she tried to protect Aiyana after being shocked awake by the grenade and the sound of broken glass. She reached for the girl and made no contact with the officer or his gun. This was later corroborated by the absence of Jones’ fingerprints on the weapon.

Although Weekly had a dubious record of hyper-aggression against children and the shooting of animals during no-knock raids, he was to escape any punishment for this latest tragedy. Both trials in 2013 and 2014 were eventually declared mistrials, as the juries on both occasions were unable to reach unanimity. Finally, in January 2015, the case was dismissed and the Jones family had to pay costs. A civil suit has been filed and an appeal to the U.S. attorney general. [8]

Family spokesman Ron Scott commented on the injustice of the law: “Weekley doesn’t have to pay but the family that lost a child has to pay,” I think it’s abominable. I think it’s evil. I think it’s one of the lowest things I have ever seen.” [9]

Rather than some overseas combat zone Americans can expect this ordeal to occur all over the United States an estimated 45,000 times every year, mostly in the search for drugs and disproportionately focused within minorities. [10]  Although the failure of the “War on Drugs” was always a certainty and remains deeply unpopular, it was never designed to be a genuine solution to a criminal enterprise, since the traditional role of intelligence agencies and law enforcement has been to profit from the support and sale of drugs on the street. 

swat-search-warrants

The creation of SWAT teams originated in the 1960s, the brainchild of the Los Angeles Police Department who were seeking ways to assist officers in high-risk situations such as a lone shooter, riots and hostage-taking. In the 21st Century they are no longer used for such specialised situations but for the average citizen and the search for drugs. According to a new study of 800 such raids conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) 79% of raids were focused on private homes and: “… only 7% of the time were heavily armed SWAT teams used for their original purposes: hostage and barricade situations.” [12]

And the reason for this explosion in state-mandated home invasions?

Aside from the aforementioned militarisation of law enforcement [8] it is partly to habituate the idea of the State as ultimate authority and the acquiescence required to justify its existence. It isn’t about finding a solution as we have surely surmised by now, it is about extending conflict in perpetuity so that the human spirit is further fragmented and broken. Secondly, as the ACLU points out, Departments of Justice, Defence, and Homeland Security make sure billions of dollars are lavished on law enforcement in order for it to complete the loop of weapons and associated military hardware contracts. The government is now merely another corporation, after all.

Tragedy and brutalisation breeds fear and compliance for some sectors of the population. For others, it ensures the propagation of the revolution meme which in turn, demands martial law and unleashing of the power of the state to enforce a return to “social cohesion.”

Continuing our look at post-9/11 rise of the police state in America, the next post will explore the use of tasers and the fallacy of non-lethality.
