Tea Leaves

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.”
--Cicero, 42 BC

Major Media News Articles on Behavior Modification

"In all, the agency [CIA] conducted 149 separate mind-control experiments, and as many as 25 involved unwitting subjects. At least one participant died, others went mad, and still others suffered psychological damage after participating in the project, known as MK Ultra. The C.I.A. ... deliberately destroyed most of the MKUltra records in 1973."

F.W. Taylor

(born March 20, 1856, Philadelphia, Pa., U.S.died March 21, 1915, Philadelphia) U.S. inventor and engineer. He worked at Midvale Steel Co. (187890), where he introduced time-and-motion study in order to systematize shop management and reduce manufacturing costs. Though his system provoked resentment and opposition from labour when carried to extremes, it had an immense impact on the development of mass production techniques and has influenced the development of virtually every modern industrial country. Taylor is regarded as the father of scientific management. production management; Taylorism.

Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915) consolidated a system of managerial authority, often referred to as scientific management, that encouraged a shift in knowledge of production from the workers to the managers.

His system broke up industrial production into very small and highly regulated steps and required that workers obey the instructions of managers concerning the proper way to perform these very specific steps. Taylor determined these steps through careful scientific observations, his most significant individual contribution to scientific management. He used these observations to compare the pace at which various workers completed tasks. Taylor's system of management atomized, or separated workers from each other. Workers in his system were given highly detailed work instructions that Taylor's scientific studies had determined to be the very best - that is most efficient - way to perform the specific, isolated, task. Workers became parts of a larger machine and they were expected to understand that their interests were in accord with the interests of managers. This "mental revolution" of interests was, Taylor believed, the most significant contribution of scientific management, in that it reduced management-worker strife.

Of or involving clever rogues or adventurers.
Of or relating to a genre of usually satiric prose fiction originating in Spain and depicting in realistic, often humorous detail the adventures of a roguish hero of low social degree living by his or her wits in a corrupt society.
One that is picaresque.

[French, from Spanish picaresco, from pícaro, picaro. See picaro.]

Early form of the novel, usually a first-person narrative, relating the episodic adventures of a rogue or lowborn adventurer (Spanish, pcaro). The hero drifts from place to place and from one social milieu to another in an effort to survive. The genre originated in Spain and had its prototype in Mateo Alemn's Guzmn de Alfarache (1599). It appeared in various European literatures until the mid-18th century, when the growth of the realistic novel led to its decline. Because of the opportunities for satire they present, picaresque elements enriched many later novels, such as Nikolay Gogol's Dead Souls (1842), Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn (1884), and Thomas Mann's Confessions of Felix Krull (1954).
Picaresque novel [pik‐ă‐resk], in the strict sense, a novel with a picaroon (Spanish, picaró: a rogue or scoundrel) as its hero or heroine, usually recounting his or her escapades in a first‐person narrative marked by its episodic structure and realistic low‐life descriptions. The picaroon is often a quick‐witted servant who takes up with a succession of employers. The true Spanish picaresque novel is represented by the anonymous Lazarillo de Tormes (1554) and by Mateo Alemán's more widely influential Guzmán de Alfarache (1599–1604); its imitators include Johann Grimmelhausen's Simplicissimus (1669) in German, Alain‐René Lesage's Gil Blas (1715–35) in French, and Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders (1722) in English. In the looser sense now more frequently used, the term is applied to narratives that do not have a picaroon as their central character, but are loosely structured as a sequence of episodes united only by the presence of the central character, who is often involved in a long journey: Cervantes' Don Quixote (1605), Henry Fielding's Tom Jones (1749), and Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884) are examples of novels that are referred to as being wholly or partly picaresque in this sense, while Byron's narrative poem Don Juan (1819–24) is a rare case of a picaresque story in verse.

Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human work in the production of goods and services. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provides human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation greatly decreases the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the world economy and in daily experience.
Automation has had a notable impact in a wide range of industries beyond manufacturing (where it began). Once-ubiquitous telephone operators have been replaced largely by automated telephone switchboards and answering machines. Medical processes such as primary screening in electrocardiography or radiography and laboratory analysis of human genes, sera, cells, and tissues are carried out at much greater speed and accuracy by automated systems. Automated teller machines have reduced the need for bank visits to obtain cash and carry out transactions. In general, automation has been responsible for the shift in the world economy from industrial jobs to service jobs in the 20th and 21st centuries.
The term automation, inspired by the earlier word automatic (coming from automaton), was not widely used before 1947, when General Motors established the automation department. At that time automation technologies were electrical, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic. Between 1957 and 1964 factory output nearly doubled while the number of blue collar workers started to decline.

Proxemics is a subcategory of the study of nonverbal communication along with haptics (touch), kinesics (body movement), vocalics (paralanguage), and chronemics (structure of time). Proxemics can be defined as "the interrelated observations and theories of man’s use of space as a specialized elaboration of culture”. Edward T. Hall, the cultural anthropologist who coined the term in 1963, emphasized the impact of proxemic behavior (the use of space) on interpersonal communication. Hall believed that the value in studying proxemics comes from its applicability in evaluating not only the way man interacts with others in his daily life, but also "the organization of space in his houses and buildings, and ultimately the layout of his towns.

In animals, Swiss zoologist Heini Hediger had distinguished between flight distance (run boundary), critical distance (attack boundary), personal distance (distance separating members of non-contact species, as a pair of swans), and social distance (intraspecies communication distance). Hall reasoned that, with very few exceptions, flight distance and critical distance have been eliminated in human reactions, and thus interviewed hundreds of people to determine modified criteria for human interactions.

(Greek, telos, end) The study of the ends or purposes of things. The idea that there is such a thing as the end or purpose of life is prominent in the Aristotelian view of nature (and ethics), and then in the Christian tradition. The association with moral thought is visible in the idea that correct human living is in accordance with natural law, or in the idea that human nature can only fulfil its purpose through the exercise of virtue. The theory of evolution through natural selection allows speculation about the function for which particular things are adapted, and so permits assertions about the purpose an adaptation serves, without any commitment to the idea of a designer who put it there for a purpose, and without the unscientific belief that the future utility of a feature somehow brings about its existence by a kind of backward causation. Teleology free of these implications is sometimes called teleonomy. The teleology of a feature may have metaphysical implications: thus one might (controversially) suggest that our spatial vision is for success at coping with a spatial world, whereas colour vision may not be for success at coping with a coloured world, but adapted to the skillful tracking of surfaces through changes of light, and this would be a way of defending a primary/secondary quality distinction. See also function (biological).
A teleology is any philosophical account which holds that final causes exist in nature, meaning that design and purpose analogous to that found in human actions are inherent also in the rest of nature. The word comes from the Greek τέλος, telos; root: τελε-, "end, purpose" (not to be confused with τῆλε, “at a distance, far from”). The adjective "teleological" has a broader usage, for example in discussions where particular ethical theories or types of computer programs are sometimes described as teleological because they involve aiming at goals.

Teleology was explored by Plato and Aristotle, by Saint Anselm around 1000 AD, and later by Immanuel Kant in his Critique of Judgment. It was fundamental to the speculative philosophy of Hegel.

A thing, process or action is teleological when it is for the sake of an end, i.e., a telos or final cause. In general it may be said that there are two types of final causes, which may be called intrinsic finality and extrinsic finality.

    A thing or action has an extrinsic finality when it is for the sake of something external to itself. In a way, people exhibit extrinsic finality when they seek the happiness of a child. If the external thing had not existed that action would not display finality.

    A thing or action has an intrinsic finality when it is for none other than its own sake. For example, one might try to be happy simply for the sake of being happy, and not for the sake of anything outside of that.

In modern science teleological explanations tend to be deliberately avoided since the Novum Organum of Francis Bacon, because whether they are true or false is argued to be beyond the ability of human perception and understanding to judge. Some disciplines, in particular within evolutionary biology, are still prone to use language that appears teleological when they describe natural tendencies towards certain end conditions; but these arguments can almost always be rephrased in non-teleological forms.

Biomimicry: Making Cement the Way Coral Does It
The creation of cement is an incredibly polluting process, but Stanford scientist Bret Constanz has found a way to mimic the way coral works, by creating cement from CO2 and water.
What a fascinating concept -- that corals might teach us to make eco-friendly building materials! What can we learn from them?
"Building reefs, the corals have developed an incredible ability to calcify. They’re the most prolific mineralizers on the planet. They form great structures like the Great Barrier Reef. In doing so, they’re able to make more mineral than any other organism we’ve ever seen. They’ve adapted specialized structures. In biomimicking what corals do, we’re really trying to mimic, in some cases, how they can mineralize so rapidly, so prolifically, to make the largest biological structures on the planet, like the Great Barrier Reef." Bret Constanz explains in this video.
For those of you who want a deeper scientific explanation of the process, the following is from

What’s the simplest way you could explain your process of taking CO2 and making concrete from it?
Brent Constanz: "There’s a natural interaction between CO2, which is a gas, and water. They come into equilibrium together and the CO2 is dissolved in water. The colder the water is, the more CO2 is dissolved into it. This forms another molecule, CO3, which we call carbonate. It’s the carbonate in carbonated water. The higher the concentration of CO2, the more carbonate you form. When we interact water with something with very high concentrations of CO2, like the flue gas of a power plant, we get much, much more CO2 dissolved in water to form carbonate.
That’s what Calera does. Across the street here at Moss Landing, there’s a 110 foot high absorber – it’s just a vertical carwash, which is spraying sea water through this big, vertical column. At the base of the column comes the flue gas from this power plant. It comes up from the base of the column, and it goes up and goes over the top. On its way out, with the sea water spraying through it, that same reaction occurs. The CO2 goes to CO3 as it dissolves in the water.
Sea water has calcium. When the calcium sees the carbonate, you form calcium carbonate, the solid. That’s what limestone is. That’s how corals form their shells. So that’s the basic process. The solids that form – it looks like milk – fall to the bottom and are separated. They’re dried out using the waste heat from the hot flue gas. There’s a way to trap the heat of the hot flue gas – it’s called a heat exchanger – so there’s no burning of fossil fuel to dry it out. That produces a powder in a spray dryer, which is akin to a machine making powdered milk. And that is the cement. The cement can be used to make aggregate, synthetic rock like synthetic limestone, or it can be kept dry as a cement and used in a concrete formulation."

Breivik a False Flag to Discredit the Right
Breivik is a Freemason Doing his Bit to Advance Communism by Pretending to Oppose It

40,000 Norwegians Mock Killer with Marxist Song He Hates
"Thousands Gather in Norway Thursday to Denounce Breivik" (and everything he supposedly stands for!)

Anders Breivik's mass murder of leftist students is a false flag intended to discredit the nationalist causes he pretends to espouse.
The demonstration Thursday is a form of mass brainwashing that consolidates support for multiculturalism, socialism and world government. This is why this mass murderer is still alive and is being treated with kid gloves.
Essentially it is the same tactic used on Jews or Americans (9-11): Mobilize and manipulate by false flag attacks by their "enemies."

I could not pass this one up. The media circus in Oslo around the trial of the century has left me speechless, but not surprised. 7/22 was the excuse to clamp down further on the "free" folks in Norway, just like 9/11 here. Then this in today's paper - the irony was just too much. Link is for visual effect.
How to brainwash a population and make them believe they are as free as a bird while under complete control by their so-called leaders. It's a piece of cake in Norway.

Breivik in Masonic regalia
The "lone nut" and accused killer of the July 22, 2011 massacre in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, had the audacity to claim in court that Pete Seeger's song "My Rainbow Race" is an example of Marxist indoctrination of children. This is how he marshals support for diversity, socialism and world government.
A call to arms was advertised and around 40,000 in Oslo answered and met downtown to protest this claim, not realizing they are being brainwashed. They all are indoctrinated from cradle to grave. The irony of it all.
The arms were innocent enough; roses everywhere and everyone singing "My Rainbow Race" both in Norwegian and English. That will teach the "lone nut".......maybe not. The same scene unfolded in another two dozen cities across the country. Jens Stoltenberg, the esteemed prime minister, twittered a "thank you to the world's most beautiful rose choir".
The crowd claimed they were taking back the song. No report of a response from Pete Seeger yet, perhaps too soon.
Makow comment: Clearly Breivik's assignment, much like Hitler's was to discredit the causes he pretends to espouse. Masons are pro-Marxist. Illuminati insider Christian Rakowsky said the real aim of Freemasonry is "create all the required prerequisites for the triumph of the Communist revolution."

The Next US President Will Be....
.... The Fortune 500. Why no matter who you vote for, nothing will ever change.
By Tony Cartalucci, Contributor
President George Bush, President Barack Obama, and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney all work for the exact same handful of corporate-financier interests. While they vary in how they dress up their methods of carrying out what is essentially a singular agenda, there is glaring continuity from one administration to the next in a process analogous to a corporate spokesman presenting the agenda of the board of directors. Changing spokesmen doesn't change the agenda of the board of directors.
While the corporate media focuses on non-issues, and political pundits accentuate petty political rivalries between the "left" and the "right," a look deeper into presidential cabinets and the authors of domestic and foreign policy reveals just how accurate this analogy is and who sits on the "board of directors."

Image: Professional spokesmen and representatives of Fortune 500 multinational corporations and banks. Since the time of JP Morgan 100 years ago, the corporate-financier elite saw themselves as being above government, and national sovereignty as merely a regulatory obstacle they could lobby, bribe, and manipulate out of existence. In the past 100 years, the monied elite have gone from manipulating the presidency to now reducing the office to a public relations functionary of their collective interests.
George Bush's cabinet consisted of representatives from FedEx, Boeing, the Council on Foreign Relations, big-oil's Belfer Center at Harvard, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Circuit City, Verizon, Cerberus Capital Management, Goldman Sachs, and the RAND Corporation, among many others.

Image: The Henry Jackson Society is just one of many Neo-Conservative think-tanks, featuring many of the same people and of course, the same corporate sponsors. Each think-tank puts on a different public face and focuses on different areas of specialty despite harboring the same "experts" and corporate sponsors.
His foreign policy was overtly dictated by "Neo-Conservatives" including Richard Perle, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Paul Wolfowitz, James Woolsey, Richard Armitage, Zalmay Khalilzad, Elliot Abrams, Frank Gaffney, Eliot Cohen, John Bolton, Robert Kagan, Francis Fukuyama, William Kristol, and Max Boot - all of whom hold memberships within a myriad of Fortune 500-funded think-tanks that to this day still direct US foreign policy - even under a "liberal" president. These include the Brookings Institution, the International Crisis Group, the Foreign Policy Initiative, the Henry Jackson Society, the Council on Foreign Relations, and many more.
Image: A visual representation of some of the Brookings Institution's corporate sponsors. Brookings is by no means an exception, but rather represents the incestuous relationship between US foreign and domestic policy making and the Fortune 500 found in every major "think-tank." Elected US representatives charged with legislative duties, merely rubber stamp the papers and policies drawn up in these think-tanks. 
Obama's cabinet likewise features representatives from JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, the Council on Foreign Relations, Fortune 500 representatives Covington & Burling, Citigroup, Freddie Mac, and defense contractor Honeywell. Like Bush's cabinet, foreign policy is not penned by Obama sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office, but rather by the very same think-tanks that directed Bush's presidency including the Council on Foreign Relations, RAND Corporation, the Brookings Institution, the International Crisis Group, and the Chatham House. There are also a myriad of smaller groups consisting of many of the same members and corporate sponsors, but who specialize in certain areas of interest.

Image: A visual representation of current US President Barack Obama's cabinet's corporate-financier ties past and present. As can be plainly seen, many of the same corporate-financier interests represented in Obama's administration were also represented in Bush's administration.
And with Mitt Romney, the likely Republican candidate running for president against Obama in 2012, we see already his foreign policy advisers, Michael Chertoff, Eliot Cohen, Paula Dobrainsky, Eric Edelman, and Robert Kagan, represent the exact same people and corporate-funded think-tanks devising strategy under both President Bush and President Obama. 
While Presidents Bush and Obama attempted to portray the West's global military expansion as a series of spontaneous crises, in reality, since at least as early as 1991, the nations of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and many others that previously fell under the Soviet Union's sphere of influence, were slated either for political destabilization and overthrow, or overt military intervention. While the public was fed various narratives explaining why Bush conducted two wars within the greater global "War on Terror," and why Obama eagerly expanded these wars while starting new ones in Libya and now Syria, in reality we are seeing "continuity of agenda," dictated by corporate-financier elite, rubber stamped by our elected representatives, and peddled to us by our "leaders," who in reality are nothing more than spokesmen for the collective interests of the Fortune 500.

Image: The International Crisis Group's corporate sponsors reveal a pattern of mega-multinationals intertwined with not only creating and directing US, and even European foreign policy, but in carrying it out. ICG trustee Kofi Annan is in Syria now carrying out a ploy to buy time for NATO-backed terrorists so they can be rearmed, reorganized, and redeployed against the Syrian government for another Western-backed attempt at regime change - all done under the guise of promoting "peace."
No matter who you vote for in 2012 - until we change the balance of power currently tipped in favor of the Fortune 500, fed daily by our money, time, energy, and attention, nothing will change but the rhetoric with which this singular agenda is sold to the public. Romney would continue exactly where Obama left off, just as Obama continued exactly where Bush left off. And even during the presidencies of Bill Clinton and Bush Sr., it was the same agenda meted out by the same corporate-financier interests that have been driving American, and increasingly Western destiny, since US Marine General Smedley Butler wrote "War is a Racket" in 1935.
A clear pattern should be apparent. The influence of corporate-financiers transcends more than presidencies, but contaminates all aspects of modern society including what is often called "non-governmental organizations" or NGOs. Modern NGOs are entirely funded and centrally directed by Fortune 500 corporations to carry their neo-imperial agenda to the four corners of the globe under the guise of the very best of intentions. The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), for instance, portends to be "supporting freedom around the world." A quick look at their board of directors reveals they are in fact drawn from big-oil, big-banking, and defense contracting boards of directors, Neo-Conservative warmongering think-tanks, corporate lobbyists, and US State Department functionaries, past and present.

Image: A visual representation of the National Endowment for Democracy's corporate-financier ties. It is not freedom they are interested in "supporting around the world," but rather the interests of the corporations and institutions their board of directors represents.
NED was central in funding, training, and directing mobs of protesters across the Arab World during the 2011 US-engineered "Arab Spring," only to see US proxies put into power where these mobs successfully toppled governments or led to violence and foreign military intervention that successfully implemented regime change. Tunisia and Libya both have overt, long-time associates of the West now in power, while similar proxies are fighting to take power in Egypt as well as battling for control over Syria. It then becomes obvious that it is not "freedom" NED is supporting worldwide, but rather the corporate-financier hegemony of the Fortune 500.

Image: NED, Freedom House, and the US State Department don't just reflect the interests of the Fortune 500, they actively carry them out, many times using the resources and reach of these very interests to implement global policy. The Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) starting in 2008 began recruiting, networking, training, funding, and equipping armies of "activists" from around the world to prepare for the "spontaneous" Arab Spring in 2011.
And the very shell organizations created to train NED's mobs, including the US State Department's Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM), was likewise funded by a myriad of Fortune 500 corporate-financier interests and attended and directed by representatives of these corporate interests.
The various business councils within the US Chamber of Commerce are also directed by the very same corporate interests directing both the US Presidency and carrying out their agenda through US-funded organizations like NED. The US-Qatar Business Council is one such example, whose representatives sit on the Washington D.C. based Middle East Policy Council alongside the UN's Karen Koning AbuZayd. AbuZayd was charged with compiling human rights reports in regards to Syria. Clearly she is the subject of a gross conflict of interests exposing yet again how US and even Western policy is not directed by presidents, prime ministers, or legislative branches, but rather by cadres of corporate-financiers and their representatives who have infiltrated every institution in Western society and even contrived a few of their own to perpetuate their agenda.

While there are a number of reasons to vote - including to simply write in the names of candidates to show dissatisfaction with the predetermined choices presented before us - we must recognize that voting alone will not change anything. And as the Occupy Wall Street movement has taught us, while our leaders demand nations like Libya and Syria allow their people to roam the streets armed and terrorizing the population, they have no intention of allowing even peaceful protests to take place back at home.
The solution is to identify and undermine the very source of power driving these world-spanning corporate-financier interests. One needs not travel further in search of this source of power than their own bathroom mirror. It is we the people, who on a daily basis, feed this monolithic corporate-financier machine of domination, exploitation, and destruction. And we need not do more than simply withdraw the time, money, energy, and attention we pay into this machine on a daily basis. We can begin by eliminating from our lives entirely the unnecessary amenities we purchase from this machine. This includes junk-food like that peddled by Pepsi Co., Coca-Cola, and the mega-chain restaurants, cafes, and fast food outlets spanning the world.
We can then begin devising local alternatives to replace these amenities, and eventually the necessities. We need not live a life of austerity or of want in the wake of deciding to boycott entirely the Fortune 500. We can leverage education, technology, and ingenuity to devise alternatives that not only match, but exceed the quality and comfort provided to us by these mega-multinationals.
While the system wants you to vote in their elections, you would be better served to instead vote with your wallet, time, energy, and attention. Don't be drawn into the establishment's circular debates, distractions, and especially the charade of predetermined elections. Regardless of who wins, Obama or Romney, the Fortune 500 will have a professional spokesman to present their collective agenda to the public under the guise of "democracy." America, and the West in general, is run by the Fortune 500, they are/were your last president or prime minister, they will be your next president or prime minister.
If this dissatisfies you - boycott them and put them out of business.

    The answer isn't to boycott the Fortune 500 companies these scoundrels represent, it's to boycott the election. Obviously, America is not going to be given a REAL choice for president because there isn't going to be a REAL election.
    Voting for who you actually want isn't going to change anything. Don't let them pretend they have the people's mandate to govern. Make them face the fact, and show to the world, that they have no authority from Americans to do what they're doing.

    Anon #1 - that is a good first step - exposing their illegitimacy, but that still doesn't change the fact that they own and run everything. What will the next move be? Obviously boycotting the Fortune 500 strikes right at the source of their power - I suppose general strikes could help too. Why wouldn't you support developing local solutions, businesses, and industry instead of continuing to send your money to Wall Street?

    Honestly, its not going to do any good to boycott the election unless EVERYONE (or a very significant amount) boycotts the election. Since that probably wont happen, I would recommend voting for the best possible candidate and holding them up to the standards of the Constitution. We must start throwing our elected officials out of office if they dont start following the constitution. Thank you, Lee

Radioactive Hell on Earth
By Mark Sircus, Contributor
I really wish this subject would just go away and that we could just go on with life and have a good time. There are actually so many things to enjoy on Mother Earth—there are the spiritual realms all around us such as the “above beings” (Native American spirituality expression) that that we may dance, intermingle and communicate with (pray to).
Fortunately we know for sure that one day we will join up with those who live beyond their bodies, meaning we are going to die whether we like it or not. It is our spiritual destiny to lose our bodies and let them go back to the dust from whence they came. The bad news is that it is going to happen a whole lot faster for the lot of us humans who will have to learn to survive on an increasingly contaminated planet. It wasn’t enough to cover the globe with lead, then mercury, plastic and a host of other chemicals. 
We have now made it more difficult to live on earth and that situation is going to get much worse. There have been severe nuclear accidents before, several very bad ones in Russia and farmers are still feeling the effects of Chernobyl. Hundreds of British sheep farmers still have to obtain a license every time they want to move sheep. Before anything moves off the farm it has to be inspected and scanned with a Geiger counter. That contamination has not gone away; it is still burning people’s and animals’ bodies and will continue to do that for a long time.

Cancer Cure?
Ever since the mid 1960's the rate of cancer diagnoses has only increased. Many speculate that this dramatic rise in cancer is tied to the industrialization of our food sources. When we look at the pharmaceutical industry, their profits have only increased every year for the last 35 years makes you wonder just maybe finding a cure for cancer isn't all it could be. And, in allot of cases the patients whose quality of life is greatly reduced just because of some drug or in many cases organic medical marijuana that could make a great difference are being purposely denied.
Cesium Chloride a little know substance whose properties have been found to be of great benefit in fighting or eliminating all forms of cancer. A very common substance that until recently has been almost overlooked as a very strong remedy in fighting and eliminating cancer. Just now the public is gaining more information on how Cesium Chloride works all of which has enormous implications that just might prevail in the fight against cancer in all its forms. So what is cesium? It is a naturally occurring alkali metal, a chemical compound with the formula CsCl. It is nature's most alkaline mineral. Cesium chloride is a salt form of cesium. Now the next question is why is this compound so effective in killing cancer cells and leaving patients with what is a reliable cure?

Anecdotal vs Scientific Evidence: Which is stronger?
Once upon a time, before there were laboratories and test tubes and innocent animals to experiment on, there were anecdotes. Anecdotes were the stuff of stories. Stories reveal what is happening in the world in real time, with real people, in real living contexts.
Where it concerns healing and curing, health and wellness, these important stories took on great significance and special meaning. Why wouldn’t they? The wisdom that they contained was responsible for keeping the people alive and well and thriving.
Over millennia most of these anecdotes and stories were passed down through the culture via the Oral Tradition. Eventually many of these stories were written down and systematized so that the teachings could be accessed in a methodical and efficient way.

Wheat: To eat or not to eat?
That has become the question for every health enthusiast who has been hit with a barrage of conflicting reports about wheat in the diet.
Since we’re dealing with the staff of life, this weighty issue must be reconciled in the minds of all concerned, especially those who are challenged by related medical conditions and health problems.
So, what is the real deal?
Let’s break it down this way for those who are sick and tired because of life-long ingestion of wheat. 
If you have been diagnosed with celiac sprue disease, you should positively not eat wheat or any gluten-containing grains. This medical condition requires a life-long prohibition, if one is to escape the ravages of this debilitating disease — celiac.
If you have been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity, you should not eat wheat or the associated grains like barley, rye, oats, etc. Doing so will eventually set you up for celiac sprue disease; that is, if you don’t already have it. The medical diagnostics and laboratory tests for gluten sensitivity are not necessarily conclusive, by the way. Therefore a strong tendency by way of family history toward gluten sensitivity ought to take it out of your diet for life.
  If you have been diagnosed with wheat intolerance, then discontinuing wheat in the diet is certainly in order. However, it is important to understand the nuance and subtlety associated with this entire field of diagnosing and remediating gluten/wheat conditions. It is not easy to thoroughly understand because of some complexities which are way beyond the scope of this coaching session.
Hence, we will take up a much more consequential matter which has recently taken the internet by storm.
There are articles, essays, books and videos which assert that eating wheat for anyone is never recommended, and will always produce a negative outcome where it concerns health. This position is the product of an incorrect understanding and highly narrow view of the role of grains in the human diet. Quite frankly, so disturbing is this gross misunderstanding that The Health Coach was compelled to write this piece.
You see, it looks like this. Once upon a time God made wheat for the benefit of humankind. In its original environment it was nourishing, fortifying and an integral part of the Ayurvedic food pyramid rightfully taking its deserved place at the base, serving as the foundation of the cultural diet. It has been eaten for thousands of years [1] with great positive effects until a few things happened.

Again, exploring the history of wheat is way beyond the scope of this session, but three critical developments will shed needed light on “what has gone wrong with the wheat”.

I. During the years of ‘creative baking’ throughout the history of Europe in particular, the bakers always tended toward using the more heavily glutenized wheat strains because they were much preferred by the customers. You know, the more chewy and glutinous, the more savory and tasty. This baking technique was eventually utilized in the making of all the breads and rolls, pastas and pizzas, cakes and pies, cookies and tart, etc. So, over the span of centuries, you can imagine how the gluten content of virtually all wheat baked goods continued to rise?
II. With the advent of modern agricultural methods, many chemicals were introduced into the process of farming wheat. In addition to the massive amounts of chemical fertilizers, there were also fungicides, herbicides, insecticides and other imprudent additions* to the soil, wheat crops, as well as the harvested wheat. We all understand what that has done to the original healthy wheat products of yesteryear.
III. Modern food companies (mom & pop bakeries included) have also contributed to this process of wheat degradation through the ways in which factory-produced foods have been furthered denatured, by both the manufacturing process itself as well as with many unnecessary and unhealthy additives (like synthetic vitamins to make it ‘enriched’) systematically added to the mix. Inferior forms of allergy-producing yeast are particularly troubling for many with compromised GI tracts and degraded villi.

Now it’s easy to see that what passes as wheat products today is far different than those of centuries ago. Like soy, which has undergone a similar process of over-hybridization, wheat has been forever tainted to a certain degree. [2]
Back to what this means to you, a wheat eater or wheat abstainer. If your heredity and relevant genetic characteristics are such that there is no predisposition toward celiac sprue in your bloodline, nor any traces of gluten sensitivity or wheat intolerance, you ought to feel secure in the knowing that eating wheat is quite okay and healthful. However there are further qualifications as follows:
Your Ayurvedic body type and Traditional Chinese Medicine profile ought to be favorable for regular wheat ingestion, otherwise ama can build up and chi blocked. Also, if you have certain chronic conditions or a tendency towards mucus production, wheat should be eaten very sparingly since it is a highly mucus-producing grain. The diet can be augmented with other foods, herbs and spices which can effectively counteract the mucus, but special care should be taken when in the throes of a respiratory illness or other mucus-producing conditions.
Also, the tendency toward obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and similar conditions ought to encourage one to decrease one’s wheat intake. This list of qualifications does go on, but for the sake of this discussion let’s end with the following extremely critical point and caveats.
Critical Point:
It is essential that we feel good about our food as we eat it. A positive attitude is key to the way all food and beverage is digested, absorbed and assimilated, and constitutes new tissues. As long as the wheat we eat, assuming you have not been disqualified by your risk profile, medical conditions, overall health status or genetic predispositions, is truly organic and made with positive vibes, it is as healthy a grain as exists on the planet.
In Ayurveda wheat is considered very sattvic, which is especially very good for yogis, meditators, students, artists and philosophers. It serves to raise the subtle vibrations of the body, as well as the entire being, so that transcendental states of consciousness can be experienced more easily.

Final Thought:
We live in a society which has placed wheat at the very top of the list of foods most frequently eaten — in the home, at the fast food counter, the gourmet restaurant, the supermarket, the health food store, the ball game, the wedding reception and funeral gathering, etc. When we attend these functions or visit these places, the question often emerges, “To eat or not to eat the wheat?
If you choose not to, you probably made the right decision.
If you choose to eat the “delectable wedding cake at the reception”, do so with perfect acceptance, enjoyment and positive feeling toward the sumptuous food you are about to eat.
May you enjoy great health,
The Health Coach
[1] “Wheat is one of the first cereals known to have been domesticated, and wheat’s ability to self-pollinate greatly facilitated the selection of many distinct domesticated varieties. The archaeological record suggests that this first occurred in the regions known as the Fertile Crescent, and the Nile Delta. These include southeastern parts of Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, the Levant, Israel, Egypt and Ethiopia. Recent findings narrow the first domestication of wheat down to a small region of southeastern Turkey, and domesticated Einkorn wheat at Nevalı Çori—40 miles (64 km) northwest of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey—has been dated to 9,000 B.C. However, evidence for the exploitation of wild barley has been dated to 23,000 B.C. and some say this is also true of pre-domesticated wheat.” (Per Wikipedia — Wheat)
[2] Wheat degeneration and added chemical toxicities have significantly contributed to the the ever-increasing incidence of celiac disease (CSD), gluten sensitivity (GS) and wheat intolerance (WI). For instance, the introduction of mercury into the wheat storage process* alone was in part responsible for overly sensitizing the entire GI tract to many of the other artificial additives, as well as setting it up for various pathological transformations (especially the destruction of the mucus membranes in the small intestine).
*“It used to be common practice across the USA to float mercury vapors from the base of all the huge grain silos in order to control all the “bugs” that fed on the wheat and oats and barley during storage.” (Per Mercury Poisoning and/or Toxicity: Do you have it?)
Why is there such a raging epidemic of GS, CSD and WI?
Two main reasons: (1) The strong digestive capacity, which is required to properly digest a tough protein like gluten, has substantially diminished throughout the modern era, particularly among Americans and Europeans. When the digestive fire is really burning well, it can practically digest nails. (2) We, as a society, simply eat too much wheat. Breakfast, lunch and dinner; morning, noon and night we grab the snack which so often contains wheat. Too much of an inherently good thing can hurt you. Way too much, for way too long, can actually kill you. Especially when any of the previously mentioned incompatibilities become operative.
Personal Testimony:
The Health Coach has submitted himself to a number of lab tests over the years each designed to determine the presence of gluten sensitivity. All of the results have come back negative. However, the bloodline on both sides of the family suggests a very high likelihood of possessing a genetic predisposition for all three — gluten sensitivity, wheat intolerance and celiac sprue disease. So does a childhood fraught with allergies, skin conditions, and other numerous unexplained ailments, many of which remain up to this very day.
It must be pointed out that a strict, multi-year, wheat and gluten-free diet had no effect on the same chronic health conditions? Some of you reading this may have experienced a similar situation. This predicament poses a very significant conundrum which will be taken up in Wheat — Part II
Factoid #1:
Did you know that every child in the country of Italy must be tested for gluten sensitivity by the age of one? It was recognized that celiac sprue disease has taken such a toll on that nation’s healthcare system, that early detection became necessary to stem the tide of celiac-related diseases overwhelming the system.
Factoid #2:
Celiac Sprue Disease has been determined to have causal correlations to almost 200 different other diseases, illnesses and syndromes. Some of these are as serious as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Systemic lupus erythematosus (aka Lupus), and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (aka Lou Gehrig’s disease and ALS).

Beware of any article, research paper or book which rails against the eating of wheat for everyone, all the time, everywhere. To put it bluntly, this type of thinking is highly uninformed and profoundly unenlightened. Furthermore, such ideas are dangerous toward the maintenance of a balanced and physically fit society, particularly in light of how pervasive and invested Western society is in the staple known as wheat.
We mean no offense, but when highly esteemed health professionals and wellness advocates embrace the notion of “No wheat ever, far anyone”, they do a great disservice of engendering unnecessary fear and anxiety, especially for those WHO MAY HAVE NO ALTERNATIVES!
We sincerely hope that we have made ourselves clear in this matter, and offer our email to those beacons of health who would like to carry on a constructive dialogue regarding this extremely important societal health matter.
Author’s Note:
For the record, The Health Coach has 8 aunts and a mother who have either died or are dying of celiac sprue disease. His wife, two sisters-in-law, brother-in-law have also been formidably challenged by gluten sensitivity and celiac. There are also several other relatives and numerous friends, business associates, acquaintances who have been likewise diagnosed. That’s not to mention well over 20 years of coaching and counseling hundreds of clients through their formidable celiac sprue challenges.

Root Canals: Why would anyone want a dead tooth in their mouth … for life?
Root Canals: Are you putting a bullet in your mouth?
In closing let us say that of all the medical and dental operations which are regularly performed on the unsuspecting public, the root canal procedure is the most misrepresented, potentially injurious and underestimated in its repercussions to systemic health. No matter which tooth has been compromised beyond repair, we universally recommend that the tooth be extracted and the tooth socket be thoroughly cleaned out as per the protocols offered by Dr. Meinig in Root Canal Cover-Up.
In the final analysis it has been determined that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD ROOT CANAL. They are all infected and only differ by the degree and outward signs of infection. Therefore, there can only be one solution which we will take up in our next dental coaching session: Root Canals: What is the best and only alternative?

Circumcision: Male Genital Mutilation
How in the world did we ever come to a place where male genital mutilation is not only completely accepted as a societal custom, but also embraced as a religious practice?! Truly, it is regarded as a rite of passage into this world of pain and suffering.
It’s like, after the baby boy is born, as if that’s not traumatic enough, he is then forced to suffer the excruciating pain and shock of having a very important piece of his body cut off … from the most sensitive part of his body, no less!
Just who is it (or who was it) that determined that the male genitalia was somehow flawed by the Creator?

The Psychedelic Transhumanists
Transhumanism in a fortune cookie:  the familiar human world is just one point along a continuum of evolution, and we have an unprecedented capacity to participate in that process.  And yet, the future being as slippery as it is, there are as many visions for how this might occur as there are visionaries to guess at it.  Computer scientists tend to have one transhumanism, genetic engineers another.  However, coherent themes emerge for those who have taken it upon themselves to make a sweeping survey of human inquiry, integrating a keen reading of the vectors of our technology with postmodern insight into the nature of mind.
Some of these thinkers have been catalyzed by the psychedelic experience -- in a way, the most informative window into a world beyond the human that we have yet discovered.  They understand the message of psychedelics and the message of technology to converge on the horizon of a deeper reading of reality that recognizes mind and matter as dimensions of the same truth -- a truth for which language has ill-prepared us.
The ranks of these "psychedelic transhumanists" include legendary rebels like Timothy Leary, wise fools like Terence McKenna, cultural commentators like Erik Davis and Mark Pesce, and avant-psychopharmacologists like David Pearce.  Hailing from disparate knowledge domains, they nonetheless share hyperliterate and uniquely discerning intellect. As unusual as their arguments may be to anyone trained in more conventional models of reality, they nonetheless obey a rigorous scientific discipline in their own way, augmenting empirical knowledge with the established insights of 20th-century psychology and philosophy.
Their common vision shares much with the rest of the transhuman community, including an embrace of technology and science as both potent and inevitable; an evolutionary model of the universe and humanity; a sense of the human organism as something that can be tinkered with and expanded; a recognition of drugs as a technology that can dramatically reinvent identity; and a playful challenging of fixed boundaries. In many ways they demonstrate the seed of transhumanism in this moment by exemplifying self-revision and the reevaluation of assumptions as an open-ended and ongoing process.  And along the way, they tatter the mechanistic control fantasies we have held onto in spite of our most sophisticated inquiries.
Among these visionaries, we find a general agreement on the emergence of emotional machines, but from a more non-dual perspective of the human as both emotional and machine-like, and a recognition of both inner and outer realities.  They tend to critique philosophies that consider mind a mere epiphenomenon, or that fail to recognize the role of the speculator in speculation.
They see technology as ideas, and ideas as technology.  They question our fanaticism for control in light of progress's runaway complexity, and remind us of the stubborn persistence of the unconscious, the body, and the other.  They insistently remind us to see the evolution of humanity and beyond as much in terms of qualia as quanta, and paint the portrait of a future sensitive to psychological, spiritual, ethical, and biological concerns.

The distinctions between this vision and the more common idea of a technological singularity are easily distilled.  In their own words, presented as a "virtual conversation" of transcripts and correspondences, here are the core messages of a transhumanist vision informed by the psychedelic experience...
Medium is message, and information is psychoactive.
Information is a more fundamental substrate of reality, an implicate order.  "Pattern" replaces "matter."
Timothy Leary:  I'm a great follower of a man named Marshall MacLuhan who wrote those wonderful books about communication.  He said that if you want to change a culture, if you want to change yourself, if you want to change religion, then change the medium, the mode of communication.  He said that Gutenberg created Protestantism where he had the mass-assembled book, where everybody can read.  And now the new form of communication is electronic...
Terence McKenna:  The realization that has flowered in the wake of the internet and the rise of cybernetics is that everything is made of information.  Information is the primary datum of being.  Concepts like time and space and energy are orders of magnitude removed from the present at hand when compared with a concept like information.  Every iota, every bit of information that passes through us, changes us.
Mark Pesce:  If you took a picture of this room in 1990 and you took a picture of it today, everything would look exactly the same and yet everything is completely different.  Because in 1990 we didn't have this layer of bits that's flowing seamlessly among all of us. And it's changed us.  It's radically sped up the way we deal with information in society.  And every bit of information that passes through you changes you. You cannot be unaffected in any way by any bit of information.  So the internet is acting as this enormous accelerator...
Erik Davis:  Information came to be seen as an abstract, almost transcendental stuff that could "circulate unchanged among different material substrates." Once we begin to believe that information is more essential than material forms, we vacate the old cosmos defined by presence and absence, entering a world characterized by the binary feedback of pattern and randomness, signal and noise.
This accelerating knowledge leads to widespread acceptance of all reality as virtual...and that it has always been this way. 
The transhuman age is simply making this inescapably obvious. Aldous Huxley's descriptive "far antipodes of the mind" (He used the phrase in a discussion of his mescaline experiences) and their real ecologies is the intellectual progenitor of The Matrix, and of a pragmatic relationship to the questions of ontology.
McKenna:  The minute I understood the concept [of virtual reality] I knew...that this would be the next great thing.  As a tool of art.  As a tool for leading us beyond the notion that we are a hive society of advanced primates, because that's how we visually appear to the empirical point of view.  That's an out-of-context description of what we are.  It's like a schematic or an aerial map.  What we really are is a community of mind, knitted together by codes and symbols, intuitions, aspirations, histories, hopes -- the invisible world of the human experience is far more real to us than the visible world, which is little more than a kind of stage or screen on which we move. The purpose of VR is to show us aspects of reality that are not artificial, but that are fields of data not ordinarily coordinated by ordinary perception.
I see virtual reality not as a way of escaping the notion of empirical reality, but as a way of re-portraying invisible levels of the given world that are very vital and important to us:  how we see flows of energy, how we understand complex economies, how we understand the fractal hierarchies of nature.

What is already co-present with three-dimensional reality is being literalized....but being literalized in timescales that make the nature of the game apparent to all but the dullest among us.  I mean after all, we have always lived in virtual realities, ever since we abandoned nomadism and defined a polis and a wilderness.
Davis:  Media have long sought to create immersive spaces of fictional reality: Baroque cathedrals, 19th century panoramas, even, perhaps, the Paleolithic caves of Lascaux or Altamira. Today, the accelerating perceptual technologies of media are on a collision course with cognitive science and its understanding of how the human nervous system produces the real-time matrix we take for ordinary space-time.
Pesce:  My first experience of virtual reality happened in 1990 and required absolutely no technology except about 500 micrograms of LSD-25.  And what I found in this virtual world, the thing that I must have suspected I would find in this virtual world, wasn't an artificial Tron-like environment. It wasn't something that was entirely artificial. What I beheld in that environment was an image of the planet, as if I was cruising above it in a spaceship. And I knew that part of my own destiny as connected with virtual reality wasn't to escape into another dimension, but to find a way to make real to us the things that we can't always see, because we exist at a level of scale, of experience, that hides them from us.
Where we're going, the simulated and the real are going to get really blurry.  And we don't have any tools of mind.  Western culture, which is based on this objective external reality -- it's not hard, it's all become very soft, and it's all flowing together. So we need to now start to find ways of describing what's going on.  And so what we need to do -- I found in my own investigations -- is to take a look at cultures that describe the world magically, that understand that perception shapes what you are, and you shape what you see.  And that they're not separate areas, they're not separate domains, and you have to consider them as a whole.
My own explorations had led me to understand that in fact, in a world where anything you want is true, the only way to deal with this is by learning how to deal with your will.  Dealing with your will is what magic has always, in all cultures, always been about.  This is why the shaman doesn't go insane when the world just disappears -- they're ready for it.  Because they understand that where they are isn't bound up in their idea of the world.  MUCH MORE HERE

The Great Data Sellout Reveals How We Pay For Our Own Enslavement
Marijuana Arrests Feed Insatiable U.S. Prison System
By Whittaker Chambers


Jean-Pierre Brisset
Brisset, Jean-Pierre (1837-1923). An erudite yet eccentric philologist whose biography remains obscure, Brisset came to light in the 1980s when French linguistics began to address various marginal cases. Brisset's grand aim was to reveal the origins not only of language but of Creation itself. Words, he contends, originate in God-the-Logos; they are always linked to things; hence all aspects of language open onto cosmology. Publications such as La Grammaire logique (1883) and La Science de Dieu (1900), which he financed himself, are replete with delirious puns and sound-permutations, yet have an unremitting seriousness. One of his more provocative ideas is that Man is descended from the frog, a claim based on phonetic evidence and confirmed, Brisset triumphantly notes, in the empirical fact that human sperm resembles tadpoles.
— Roger Cardinal
Jean-Pierre Brisset (La Sauvagère, 1837 – La Ferté-Macé, 1919) was a French writer.

Born in a family of farmers, Brisset was an outsider writer, much like Henri Rousseau was an outsider artist. He is a saint on the 'Pataphysics calendar. His writings are in publication as of 2004.
Brisset was an autodidact. Having left school at age twelve to help on the family farm, he apprenticed as a pastry chef in Paris three years later. In 1855, he enlisted in the army for seven years and fought in the Crimean War. En 1859, he learned Italian thanks to the war in Italy against the Austrians. After he was wounded at the Battle of Magenta, he was taken prisoner. During the Franco-Prussian War, he was a second lieutenant in the 50e régiment d'infanterie de ligne. Taken prisoner again, he was sent to Magdeburg in Saxony where he learned German.
In 1871 he published La natation ou l’art de nager appris seul en moins d’une heure (Learning the art of swimming alone in less than an hour) before resigning from the Army and moving to Marseilles, where he filed the patent for the "airlift swimming trunks and belt with a double compensatory reservoir". This commercial endeavor was a complete failure. He then returned to Magdeburg, where he earned his living as a language teacher, developing a method for learning French, which he published through a vanity press in 1874.
He became stationmaster at the railway station of Angers, and later of L'Aigle. After publishing another book on the French language, he undertook his major philosophical work, which consisted in spreading his theory that Man's origins were in the water, and He was descended from Frogs. He supported his contention by comparing the French and frog languages (like "logement"= dwelling, comes from "l'eau" = water). He was dead serious about his "morosophy", and penned several books and pamphlets expounding his indisputable substantiations, which he had printed and distributed at his own expense.
In 1912, novelist Jules Romains, who had got his hands on a copy of God's Mystery and The Human Origins, set up, with the help of a few fellow hoaxers, a rigged election for a "Prince of Thinkers". Unsurprisingly, Brisset got elected. The Election Committee then called him to Paris in 1913, where he was received and acclaimed with great pomp. He partook in several ceremonies and a banquet, uttering emotional words of thanks for this unexpected late recognition of his work. Newspapers exposed the hoax on the next day.
The Complete Works of Brisset have recently been reprinted by Marc Décimo, Dijon, Les Presses du réel, 2001. In an essay entitled, Jean-Pierre Brisset, Prince des Penseurs, inventeur, grammairien et prophète, Dijon, Les presses du réel, 2001, Marc Décimo has given a biography, explanations about Brisset's delirium about frogs as ancestors of humankind. Translations in several languages (European languages, Wolof, Armenian, Arabic, Houma, etc.) can be found in this book as well. It also includes the major texts written about Brisset by Jules Romains, Marcel Duchamp, André Breton, Raymond Queneau, and Michel Foucault. In 2004 the Art of Swimming (as a frog) was published in paperback.
Around 2001, Ernestine Chassebœuf wrote several letters to French politicians, universities, railway stations, library directors, psychiatric hospitals, to suggest they name a street, a university, etc. after Brisset. Their answers were published on a website dedicated to him, but there is no "rue Jean-Pierre Brisset" as of yet. Thanks to a bequest to Jules Romain, an annual dinner in his memory was made possible until 1939.

385–380 BC. It concerns itself at one level with the genesis, purpose and nature of love, and (in later day interpretations) is the origin of the concept of Platonic love.

Love is examined in a sequence of speeches by men attending a symposium, or drinking party. Each man must deliver an encomium, a speech in praise of Love (Eros). The party takes place at the house of the tragedian Agathon in Athens. Socrates in his speech asserts that the highest purpose of love is to become a philosopher or, literally, a lover of wisdom. The dialogue has been used as a source by social historians seeking to throw light on life in ancient Athens, in particular upon sexual behavior, and the symposium as an institution.
The dialogue's seven participants are:
Phaedrus (speech begins 178a): familiar from Phaedrus and other dialogues.
Pausanias (speech begins 180c): the legal expert.
Eryximachus (speech begins 186a): a physician.
Aristophanes (speech begins 189c): he at first skips his turn because of a bout of hiccups. The eminent comic playwright has become a focus of subsequent scholarly debate. His contribution has been seen as mere comic relief, and sometimes as satire: the creation myth he puts forward to account for heterosexuals and homosexuals may be read as poking fun at the myths of origin numerous in classical Greek mythology.

Professor Depicts Blood-Dripping Knife, Machine-Gun, While Talking Population Control
Deception is the fruit by which we know the eugenicists, that much is evident. As the video shows, another typical trait is the perverse pleasure these people have in scaring mankind into accepting depopulation plans.

There was the case of Professor Eric Pianka who during a lecture in 2006 displayed an image of human skulls as he was calling for mass-death. Forrest Mims, Chairman of the Environmental Science Section of the Texas Academy of Science gave a description of one of Pianka’s lectures:
“Professor Pianka said the Earth as we know it will not survive without drastic measures. Then, and without presenting any data to justify this number, he asserted that the only feasible solution to saving the Earth is to reduce the population to 10 percent of the present number. He then showed solutions for reducing the world’s population in the form of a slide depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. War and famine would not do, he explained. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved. Pianka then displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls, one of which had red lights flashing from its eye sockets. AIDS is not an efficient killer, he explained, because it is too slow. His favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (…), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. However, Professor Pianka did not mention that Ebola victims die a slow and torturous death as the virus initiates a cascade of biological calamities inside the victim that eventually liquefy the internal organs.”
These are some death-loving sociopaths that sit spider-like inside the halls of academia. Forrest Mims continues:
“After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us and carefully said, “We’ve got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. With his slide of human skulls towering on the screen behind him, Professor Pianka was deadly serious. The audience that had been applauding some of his statements now sat silent.”
It’s clear what is happening. Scientists worldwide are engaging in open threats of death to scare us into submission. They will not succeed.

The City World Conquest

Anthony Blunt 1907-1983, Queen's cousin and curator of her art until he was outed as a Soviet spy in 1979. The traitors were Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt.
Rothschilds Planned to Make Britain Communist
Victor Rothschild, the mystery fifth man, recruited and placed four influential spies to help him subvert the UK. They were known as the "Cambridge Five."

Victor Rothschild 1910-1990, in a Masonic pose
Former intelligence asset T. Stokes says modern Britain reflects the Rothschilds' plan for Communist tyranny.
By T. Stokes

The role the Cambridge traitors like Anthony Blunt played in bringing Britain into WWII on Communism's side will be revealed in a new book which cannot yet be identified.

The new book should reveal how and why Communist recruitment teams were allowed to flourish in the British Universities. This is related to generous bequests from Victor Rothschild.
The Cambridge Apostles were working for the time when Britain was ruled by the Communist system, maybe under another name but still communist and they were promised positions of great power.
Britain was to undergo many of the hardships of the Russian people, such as unemployment, starvation, loss of national rights and stature; the elimination of Christianity and the extinction of the Royal family as in France and Russia, and the installation of multiculturalism and loss of national identity.

Stalin played this constantly inside the Soviet Bloc pitting one race against another, and according to the book "The Great Terror" murdering as many as 63 million of his captive people, or useless eaters he called them.
(See Oleg Bzorski document "Stalin's Long March to Britain ".)
The English race was to be phased out similar to Germany; no Anglo Saxons would exist in 80 years. Prison camps for dissidents would dot the British countryside.

All the Cambridge traitors felt that Britain was failing fast and this was their only hope.

Anthony Blunt believed what Rothschild told him, that the wealth and artworks of the royal family would be confiscated and Buckingham palace would become a museum for the people.
He would build a huge art museum in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv called the Sir Anthony Blunt Institute.  There would be marble floors and a special Poussin section where Blunt could give talks on his favorite French painters.
Rothschild told him that he was working to build financial power blocks.
Britain would go into the EU; gradually the number of world power blocks would be reduced and left with a one-world-currency one world army and one world government controlled by the Zionists based in Jerusalem.

The Cambridge traitors were untouchable. They did not realize that Russia was the Trojan horse which the Rothschilds had been running since 1917. Their largely completed goal: to take over the world.

Venus in Furs
By Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch
If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.
Venus in Furs (or essentially, "The Education of a Young Woman') is novelist and poet von Sacher-Masoch's most sublime text on the devotion of "masochism"-emotional, psychological, sexual-and it is a masterpiece of persuasion. Its protagonist is an educated and devout man given to whips and ideals. Severin von Kusiemski's is an unusual (and mystical) pedagogy and his Ideal is the cruel woman in furs who will allow him to be her slave; for in his rapturous acquiescence, and in his conscious guidance of both his own and his mistress' will, Severin will have penetrated into the beating heart of a solitary man's deepest and most profound desires: to merge flesh with spirit, birth with death, Heaven with Hell. This classic late-nineteenth-century novel-surprisingly, rarely if ever made so accessible to English-speaking readers-is not, as popular rumor would have it, simply a lurid tale of obsessive obscenity. Nor is it merely a Victorian dream of antique decadence. It remains a deeply felt, intelligent and powerful morality play of our time, marvelously written, and it leaves one, finally, to question his/her presumptions and ambivalence toward torment, submission, and ecstasy. This edition includes an intriguing selection of letters between von Sacher-Masoch and a young correspondent that illuminates the real-life parallel of von Sacher-Masoch's ideals and that of his oeuvre. Venus in Furs and Selected Letters is, in all, a passionate portrayal of one man's indomitable struggle to enlighten and instruct himself and his world in the realm of desire. A timeless volume, highly recommended for bed-sitting aesthetes everywhere. -- From Independent Publisher

Sacher-Masoch is the great-great-uncle to the British singer and actress Marianne Faithfull on her mother's side, the Viennese Baroness Eva Erisso.
Thomas Nashe
Nashe or Nash, Thomas, 1567-1601, English satirist. Very little is known of his life. Although his first publications appeared in 1589, it was not until Pierce Penniless His Supplication to the Devil (1592), a bitter satire on contemporary society, that his natural and vigorous style was fully developed. His ardent anti-Puritanism involved him in the Martin Marprelate controversy, resulting in a scurrilous pamphlet battle with Richard and Gabriel Harvey in which Nashe produced some of his liveliest writing. The Unfortunate Traveler (1594), his best-known work, was a forerunner of the picaresque novel of adventure. His plays include a satirical masque, Summer's Last Will and Testament (1592); and a lost comedy written with Ben Jonson, The Isle of Dogs (1597), which caused the imprisonment of several persons, including Jonson himself, for "seditious and slanderous" language.

I. Every Pregnancy Is A Wanted Pregnancy. Every Child Is A Wanted Child.

Unwanted children are typically unloved, abused and neglected who become the next generation of delinquents, violent offenders and alcohol/drug abusers and addicts.

II. Every Pregnancy Has Proper Nutrition & Prenatal Care--medical and psychological --and is free from alcohol, drugs tobacco and other harmful agents of stress.

III. Natural Birthing--avoid wherever possible obstetrical medications, forceps & induced labor with no episiotomy nor premature cutting of umbilical cord. Mother controls birthing position with no separation of newborn from mother. Newborn maintains intimate body contact with mother for breastfeeding and nurturance that promotes Basic Trust.

IV. No Circumcision of newborn. The traumatic pain of newborn circumcision adversely affects normal brain development, impairs affectional bonding with mother and has long lasting effects upon how pain and pleasure are experienced in life that shapes the development of Human Trust.

V. Breastfeeding On Demand by newborn/infant/child and for “two years or beyond”, as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. Failure to breastfeed results in positive harm to normal brain development and to the Immunological health of the newborn, infant and child. Encoding the developing brain with the smell of mother’s body through breastfeeding is essential for the later development of intimate sexuality.

VI. Intimate Body Contact is maintained between mother and newborn/infant by being carried continuously on the body of the mother for the first year of life. Such continuous gentle body movement stimulation of the newborn/infant promotes optimal brain development and “Basic Trust” for peaceful/happy behaviors. Mother-infant co-sleeping is encouraged for “two years or beyond”. Mother-infant/child body contact can also be optimized with daily infant/child massage. The Father must a lso learn to affectionately bond with his infant and child by being an additional source of physical affection and supporting mother as a nurturing mother.

VII. Immediate Comforting is given to infants and children who are crying. No infant/child should ever be permitted to cry itself to sleep, which impairs development of Human Trust.

VIII. Infants and Children Are For Hugging and should never be physically hit for any reason. Merging childhood parental love with parental violent pain helps create adult violent "love".

IX. Infants and Children Are Honored and should never be humiliated nor emotionally abused for any reason. The emerging sexuality of every child is respected which promotes Human Trust.

X. Mothers Must Be Honored and not replaced by Institutional Day Care which emotionally harms children before three years of age. Mother-Infant/Child Community Development Centers must replace Institutionalized Day Care.

An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way. Archaically the word mome has also been used. The similar terms moron, imbecile, and cretin have all gained specialized meanings in modern times. An idiot is said to be idiotic, and to suffer from idiocy. A dunce is an idiot who is specifically incapable of learning. An idiot differs from a fool (who is unwise) and an ignoramus (who is uneducated/an ignorant), neither of which refers to someone with low intelligence.
 Look up idiot in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

Idiot as a word derived from the Greek ἰδιώτης, idiōtēs ("person lacking professional skill", "a private citizen", "individual"), from ἴδιος, idios ("private", "one's own"). In Latin the word idiota ("ordinary person, layman") preceded the Late Latin meaning "uneducated or ignorant person." Its modern meaning and form dates back to Middle English around the year 1300, from the Old French idiote ("uneducated or ignorant person"). The related word idiocy dates to 1487 and may have been analogously modeled on the words prophet and prophecy. The word has cognates in many other languages.

An idiot in Athenian democracy was someone who was characterized by self-centeredness and concerned almost exclusively with private—as opposed to public—affairs. Idiocy was the natural state of ignorance into which all persons were born and its opposite, citizenship, was effected through formalized education. In Athenian democracy, idiots were born and citizens were made through education (although citizenship was also largely hereditary). "Idiot" originally referred to "layman, person lacking professional skill", "person so mentally deficient as to be incapable of ordinary reasoning". Declining to take part in public life, such as democratic government of the polis (city state), was considered dishonorable. "Idiots" were seen as having bad judgment in public and political matters. Over time, the term "idiot" shifted away from its original connotation of selfishness and came to refer to individuals with overall bad judgment–individuals who are "stupid". According to the Bauer-Danker Lexicon, the noun ίδιωτής in ancient Greek meant "civilian" (ref Josephus Bell 2 178), "private citizen" (ref sb 3924 9 25), "private soldier as opposed to officer," (Polybius 1.69), "relatively unskilled, not clever," (Herodotus 2, 81 and 7 199). The military connotation in Bauer's definition stems from the fact that ancient Greek armies in the time of total war mobilized all male citizens (to the age of 50) to fight, and many of these citizens tended to fight poorly and ignorantly.

In modern English usage, the terms "idiot" and "idiocy" describe an extreme folly or stupidity, and its symptoms (foolish or stupid utterance or deed). In psychology, it is a historical term for the state or condition now called profound mental retardation.

In 19th and early 20th century medicine and psychology, an "idiot" was a person with a very severe mental retardation. In the early 1900s, Dr. Henry H. Goddard proposed a classification system for mental retardation based on the Binet-Simon concept of mental age. Individuals with the lowest mental age level (less than three years) were identified as idiots; imbeciles had a mental age of three to seven years, and morons had a mental age of seven to ten years. The term "idiot" was used to refer to people having an IQ below 30. IQ, or intelligence quotient, was originally determined by dividing a person's mental age, as determined by standardized tests, by their actual age. The concept of mental age has fallen into disfavor, though, and IQ is now determined on the basis of statistical distributions.

In current medical classification, these people are now said to have "profound mental retardation."

Until 2007, the California Penal Code Section 26 stated that "Idiots" were one of six types of people who are not capable of committing crimes. In 2007 the code was amended to read "persons who are mentally incapacitated."[13] In 2008, Iowa voters passed a measure replacing "idiot, or insane person" in the State's constitution with "person adjudged mentally incompetent."

In several U.S. states, "idiots" do not have the right to vote:

Kentucky Section 145
Mississippi Article 12, Section 241
New Mexico Article VII, section 1
Ohio (Article V, Section 6)
The constitution of the state of Arkansas was amended in the general election of 2008 to, among other things, repeal a provision (Article 3, Section 5) which had until its repeal prohibited "idiots or insane persons" from voting.

In literature
A few authors have used "idiot" characters in novels, plays and poetry. Often these characters are used to highlight or indicate something else (allegory). Examples of such usage are William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and William Wordsworth's The Idiot Boy. Idiot characters in literature are often confused with or subsumed within mad or lunatic characters. The most common imbrication between these two categories of mental impairment occurs in the polemic surrounding Edmund from William Shakespeare's King Lear. In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Idiot, the idiocy of the main character, Prince Lev Nikolaievich Myshkin, is attributed more to his honesty, trustfulness, kindness, and humility, than to a lack of intellectual ability. Nietzsche claimed, in his The Antichrist, that Jesus was an idiot. This resulted from his description of Jesus as having an aversion toward the material world.
Nietzsche, Friedrich (1895). The Antichrist.  "To make a hero of Jesus! And even more, what a misunderstanding is the word 'genius'! Our whole concept, our cultural concept, of 'spirit' has no meaning whatever in the world in which Jesus lives. Spoken with the precision of a physiologist, even an entirely different word would be yet more fitting here—the word idiot."
(§ 29, partially quoted here, contains three words that were suppressed by Nietzsche's sister when she published The Antichrist in 1895. The words are: 'das Wort Idiot,' translated here as 'the word idiot'. They were not made public until 1931, by Josef Hofmiller. H.L. Mencken's 1920 translation does not contain these words.)

I. A. Richards
Richards, I. A. (Ivor Armstrong Richards), 1893-1979, English literary critic. Richards was one of the founders of the school of interpretation known as the New Criticism, which stressed an awareness of textual and psychological nuance and ambiguity when studying literature. He advocated this viewpoint in influential studies including The Meaning of Meaning (with C. K. Ogden, 1923), Principles of Literary Criticism (1924), and Practical Criticism (1929) (see criticism). Richards's own poetry included Internal Colloquies: Poems and Plays (1973) and Beyond (1974) Richards was well-known for his creation, with Charles Kay Ogden, of a simplified language called Basic English, which consists of a primary vocabulary of 850 words. He championed its adoption in books such as Basic English and Its Uses (1943) and So Much Nearer: Essays Toward a World English (1968), and in his teaching at Cambridge and Harvard; he even translated Plato's Republic into Basic English.

Marshall McLuhan   
McLuhan's theories consisted of a core of related propositions. He argued that human communication media are extensions of one or more of the senses and that use of these media re-arranges the sensory balance by stressing one sense over another. The self-definition of a culture (or a person) can thus be traced, says McLuhan, to the media that the culture relies on. To emphasize the importance of the sensory reorganization imposed by a medium, McLuhan claimed that "the medium is the message," which he later extended to the metaphor that "the medium is the massage."
In The Mechanical Bride: Folklore of Industrial Man (1951), written before McLuhan's theories had reached their full development, one can see the brilliant attempt of a professor of literature to demonstrate to his students the ideologies that are invisibly (and therefore influentially) built into the content and structure of popular culture. Drawing mainly upon newspaper and magazine advertising, McLuhan argued that images of mechanical technology had come to dominate popular consciousness, so that human beings reduced themselves to mechanical and instrumental objects.
The Gutenberg Galaxy: The Making of Typographic Man (1962), which won the 1963 Governor-General's Award for critical writing, is a study of the results of introducing movable type into the culture of 15th-century Western Europe. McLuhan argued that the invention of print culture made possible the creation of the public and the organization of the public into a nation. Movable type also changed the culture by altering people's sensory balance, emphasizing a visual fragmentation and linearity consistent with mechanical print.
McLuhan became famous with the publication of Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man (1964). In this book McLuhan made his most comprehensive statement of his theory. He argued that "the medium is the message," in the sense that

the 'message' of any medium or technology is the change of scale or pace or pattern that it introduces into human affairs. The railway did not introduce movement or transportation or wheel or road into human society, but it accelerated and enlarged the scale of previous human functions, creating totally new kinds of cities and new kinds of work or leisure. This happened whether the railway functioned in a tropical or a northern environment, and is quite independent of the freight or content of the railway medium. The airplane, on the other hand, by accelerating the rate of transportation, tends to dissolve the railway form of city, politics, and association, quite independently of what the airplane is used for.

Understanding Media also advanced McLuhan's notions of the narcotizing effects of media and of the distinction between hot and cool media. McLuhan claimed that when one of our senses is "extended" through a new medium, our sensory balance is altered in such a way that the other senses become dimmed or "narcotized." The hot versus cool distinction claims that hot media deliver information in high definition, and hence require little effort from the receiver. Cool media, on the other hand, provide little information, forcing the receiver to fill in what is missing to make sense out of the message, thus demanding a high degree of participation by the receiver. McLuhan wrote that, just as the change from oral and manuscript cultures to print culture had altered history, so, too, the change from print to electronic culture (television, computers) would, apart from whatever messages might be sent on television or computers, bring about a fundamental alteration in human consciousness.
"The modern little red riding hood, reared on singing commercials, has no objections to being eaten by the wolf."
"Advertising is the greatest art form of the twentieth century."
"Ideally, advertising aims at the goal of a programmed harmony among all human impulses and aspirations and endeavors. Using handicraft methods, it stretches out toward the ultimate electronic goal of a collective consciousness."
"Money is a poor man's credit card."
"The school system, custodian of print culture, has no place for the rugged individual. It is, indeed, the homogenizing hopper into which we toss our integral tots for processing."
"American youth attributes much more importance to arriving at driver's license age than at voting age."

Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche; October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900) was a German philosopher, poet, composer and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.
Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism, nihilism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation, mostly in the continental tradition. His key ideas include the death of God, perspectivism, the Übermensch, amor fati, the eternal recurrence, and the will to power. Central to his philosophy is the idea of "life-affirmation", which involves an honest questioning of all doctrines that drain life's expansive energies, however socially prevalent those views might be.
Nietzsche began his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy. In 1869, at the age of 24 he was appointed to the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel (the youngest individual to have held this position), but resigned in the summer of 1879 due to health problems that plagued him most of his life. In 1889 he became mentally ill with what was then characterized as atypical general paresis attributed to tertiary syphilis, a diagnosis that has since come into question. He lived his remaining years in the care of his mother until her death in 1897, then under the care of his sister until his death in 1900.

A History of Happiness
We've forgotten much of what older traditions knew about happiness.
By Darrin M. McMahon, Ph.D.
Happiness has increasingly been thought to be more about getting little infusions of pleasure, about feeling good rather than being good, less about living the well-lived life than about experiencing the well-felt moment.

A History of Happiness
We've forgotten a lot of what we used to know about happiness.

The ancients thought of happiness not as an emotional state but as an outcome of moral comportment.
This perspective lies behind our belief that suffering is inherently wrong, and that all people, in all places, should have the opportunity, the right, to be happy.
We might focus less on our own personal happiness and instead on the happiness of those around us, for relentless focus on one’s own happiness has the potential to be self-defeating.
Darrin M. McMahon, Ph.D., originally wrote this article for Greater Good, the UC Berkeley-based magazine that covers research into the roots of compassion, happiness, and altruism. It is republished through a special collaboration between Greater Good and YES! Magazine, a national, nonprofit media organization that fuses powerful ideas with practical actions. Darrin McMahon is a professor of history at Florida State University and the author of Happiness, A History. This piece is based on a talk he delivered at the 2008 "Happiness and Its Causes" conference in San Francisco, co-sponsored by the Greater Good Science Center.


    10 Things Science Says Will Make You Happy: Scientists can tell us how to be happy. Really. Here are 10 ways, with the research to prove it.
    Making a Difference Makes you Happy: A series of studies find that activism brings pleasant emotions, greater life satisfaction, and more experiences of freedom, competence, and connection to others.
    Be Happy Anyway: The economic boom didn't bring us (or the planet) any happiness. So maybe there's an upside to the downturn.

For a Muscular, Moral Foreign Policy
By Amitai Etzioni
After receiving his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1958, Dr. Amitai Etzioni served as a Professor of Sociology at Columbia University for 20 years; part of that time as the Chairman of the department. He was a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution in 1978 before serving as a Senior Advisor to the White House from 1979-1980. In 1980, Dr. Etzioni was named the first University Professor at The George Washington University, where he is the Director of the Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies. From 1987-1989, he served as the Thomas Henry Carroll Ford Foundation Professor at the Harvard Business School.
Dr. Etzioni served as the president of the American Sociological Association in 1994-95, and in 1989-90 was the founding president of the international Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics. In 1990, he founded the Communitarian Network, a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to shoring up the moral, social and political foundations of society. He was the editor of The Responsive Community: Rights and Responsibilities, the organization's quarterly journal, from 1991-2004. In 1991, the press began referring to Dr. Etzioni as the 'guru' of the communitarian movement.
Dr. Etzioni is the author of numerous books, including The Monochrome Society (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2001), The Limits of Privacy (New York: Basic Books, 1999), The New Golden Rule (New York: Basic Books, 1996), which received the Simon Wiesenthal Center's 1997 Tolerance Book Award, The Spirit of Community (New York: Crown Books, 1993), and The Moral Dimension: Toward a New Economics, (New York: Free Press, 1988). His most recent books are My Brother's Keeper: A Memoir and a Message (Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2003), and From Empire to Community: A New Approach to International Relations (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2004).
Outside of academia, Dr. Etzioni's voice is frequently heard in the media.
In 2001, he was named among the top 100 American intellectuals as measured by academic citations in Richard Posner's book, Public Intellectuals: A Study of Decline.
Also in 2001, Dr. Etzioni was awarded the John P. McGovern Award in Behavioral Sciences as well as the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. He was also the recipient of the Seventh James Wilbur Award for Extraordinary Contributions to the Appreciation and Advancement of Human Values by the Conference on Value Inquiry, as well as the Sociological Practice Association's Outstanding Contribution Award.
Dr. Etzioni is married and has five sons.

Whatever happened to Officer Friendly?
All U.S. cops guilty of treason for assisting coverup of 9/11
Congress, bankers, military leaders all know it has all been a big lie
Corrupt judges, bought-off media sold their own people into worldwide slavery

By John Kaminski

Every police officer in the United States of America is guilty of treason for acquiescing to the now-provable lies top officials of the U.S. government told to the world immediately after the 9/11 disaster. Their actions changed the character of America forever. Their lies have resulted in the needless deaths of millions around the world.
With a story so flimsy and a crime so gruesome, any cop who submitted to his superiors in any police department anywhere the kind of evidence U.S. officials submitted to the world would have been fired on the spot for either incompetence or corruption. Needless to say, it is not that way anymore.
When America's first known homosexual president stood in the ruins of the World Trade Center and said to all the shellshocked mourners — "They hate our freedoms!" — every cop worth his salt could see a quivering liar running a scam not even City Hall could fix. They all kept silent. (Pensions, y'know.)
This brilliantly conceived psyop, through saturation media, managed to convince the world that a man named Tim Osman, who once trained at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, was really Osama bin Laden (whose family was close to the Bush family), dealing a death blow to the Western colonialists in its biggest city from a high-tech cave in darkest Afghanistan.
Every pronouncement of every American official in any circumstance uttered since that moment has been embellishment of that lie. All events since that time are predicated on the falsehood that unidentifiable and unconvincing Islamic terrorists who absolutely could not fly planes outwitted the U.S. trillion dollar defense system.
The world still runs on this hollow tune, and the blood still flows.
However, through their control of the media and education, pretty much nobody seems the wiser, as the various environmental poisons course through their veins and make them sleepier and sleepier, while they continue to be dazzled by entertainment that only gets dumber and dumber.
They cheer Obama wildly when he appears on late night talks shows. He's a fine entertainer. Yes dear, it's almost time for bed.
Particularly after Obama's latest stunt that he may murder American citizens by decree, we all have to ask ourselves — what kind of robot does it take to smile at a man who has promised to kill you if you disagree with what he says?
A chickenshitmotherfuckingman who probably cannot look at himself in the mirror without his antidepressants and his lubes.
And whatever happened to Officer Friendly?
When he's not tazing your grandmother, he's raping your granddaughter at her elementary school. But it's OK; the lesbian social workers will take good care of her, and the kids on the corner who talk to the guy in the big black car will make sure she feels better.
Officer Friendly was then taken to Israel and mentally sodomized by top Israeli officials, administered with the proper psychological steroids that guarantee he will self-destruct from various diseases in a fairly short period of time, after he first disposes of the prescribed number of non Jews in his allotted time frame when he returns to the United States.
The Jews never were American citizens and never will be. They are all agents of a foreign power, and you, my fellow Americans, are their prey.

The Power And Aims Of International Jewry (Zionism)
November 22, 2001

1. The Jews are a nation held together by their common enemies. (Note 3.)
2. With the Jews Nationality and Religion are inseparable and co-extensive.
3. All groups of Jews from the extreme radicals (Poole Zionist) to the most conservative, are united in this National Religious Movement.
4. Once a Jew always a Jew.
5. The teachings of the Talmud still exercises a profound influence on Jewish life.
6. Judaism and Socialism are different expressions of the same movement.
7. The Jews consider themselves the original exponents of internationalism and the League of Nations. (Note 4.)


... Concerning the leaders of the Munich Soviet Revolution, Ben Hecht, himself a radical, in a cable published in the CHICAGO DAILY NEWS said:
"As for the Communist leaders in Bavaria, for instance Toller, Levine, Muhsam, Landauer, Lipp, and, in fact, all whom I met in the April Soviet days in Munich, were Jews."
As to the general Jewish influence in Germany, Hecht states:
"One of the tragi-comic sides of the feverish German situation today is the position of the German Jews. Although less than one per cent of the German population consists of Jews, fully 75% of its present leaders - conservative and radical - are Semitic. The only political party which has no Jewish leaders is the centre or Catholic party, controlled by Mathias Erzberger. In Weimar, however, I have seen numerous centrist delegates to the national assembly whose Catholicism was political rather than racial.
As for the majority socialist, it must be remembered that the socialist party was founded by Karl Marx, a Jew, and co-ordinated by Ferdinand Lasalle and the elder Liebknecht, also Jews, while it was economically developed by Singer, another Jew. On the other hand the most active anti-socialist leaders in Germany - Theodor Wolff, George Bernhard and a dozen others of similar standing - are likewise Jews.
Hugo Haase, leader of the independent socialist party, is a Jew, as are practically all of its more important leaders, with the exception of Dr. Rudolph Breitscheld.
Nearly all of the newspaper editors and publicists whom I have encountered, from Maximilian Harden up and down the line, are Jews, and, so far as I can make out, nearly all the Berlin bankers are of the same race."


It is true that there have been local outbreaks against the Jews, for special reasons, due to upset conditions, and tales about Jewish profiteering, particularly from Russian Bolshevik Jews, who are trying to upset the Polish nationalist spirit. **** I remark with wonder that the leaders of America’s greatest Jewish societies are lending themselves to this movement, for all this agitation in America is only helping Germany and Bolshevik Russia. *** Whenever one Jew has been hurt in Poland, Jews say ten were killed and Germans say a thousand. If a Jew is killed in conflict, like the Jews in Vilna who fought with the Bolsheviki, the German press immediately spreads a tale of a Polish pogrom in Vilna."
(b) Have the Jewish Zionists as a part of a definite propaganda to get for the Jews of Poland minority rights, deliberately exaggerated the stories of pogroms in Poland?
The BILL OF RIGHTS adopted at the American-Jewish Congress at Philadelphia on December 19, 1918, requested the Peace Conference to grant to the Jews in new or enlarged states to be created by the Conference, autonomous management of all Jewish communal institutions and insisted that such autonomy be a condition precedent to the creation of any such state. Poland being the largest and most important new state thus to be formed, it was natural that the Jews should center their efforts on establishing this principle there.
To quote from one of their own number, (Israel Cohen, in the WASHINGTON POST, May 30, 1919):


“There is only one way in which the civil equality of the Jews can be preserved and that is by their being given the rights of a national minority. The Jews should be given autonomy as far as the administration of their religious, cultural, social and charitable affairs are concerned, but they should also be constituted a separate electoral college with the right to proportional representation in the Polish Parliament. And in order to establish a good working understanding between them and the government, it is advisable that there should be a ministry of Jewish affairs, the head of which should be responsible to a representative council of the organized Jewish communities."


Article 10 - Educational Committee appointed locally by Jewish communities will provide for distribution of proportional share of public funds allocated to Jewish schools in accordance with Article 9 and for organization and management of these schools. The provisions of Article 9 concerning the use of language in schools shall apply to these schools.
Article 11 - provides that Jews shall not be compelled to violate their Sabbath and that no elections or registration shall be held on a Saturday.
Article 12 - provides that the foregoing provisions constitute obligations of international concern and shall he placed under the guarantee of the League of Nations, no change to be made without the consent of majority of council of League of Nations which will be binding on the United States and the leading Allies. Any member of the League Council can call attention of the Council to possible infraction, and Council may take jurisdiction of question.
Mr. Marshall in an interview of July 24, 1919 said: "The rights which have been secured have not been affected in favor of the Jews alone, but for all minorities." In this connection it is worthy of notice that Article 10 and 11 relate solely to the Jews.
In an earlier interview of June 30, 1919 (NEW YORK TIMES, July 1) Mr. Marshall said:
"Nothing thus far accomplished by the Peace Conference exceeds in importance the Polish Treaty. **** It is literally a charter of Liberty and the final act of emancipation of those who, for centuries, have been bereft of elemental human rights. ******* It enshrines in the law of nations the eternal principles of human liberty that constitute the distinctive features of the American Constitution by means of which, despite the divergent racial elements of our population, we have become in fact as well as in spirit, a homogeneous, patriotic, just nation. We have long appreciated what at last is to enter into the consciousness of all people - that the true purpose of government cannot be realized until majorities look upon minorities as their equal before the law."
This statement is misleading because it gives the reader the idea that the rights granted the Jews in Poland are only those enjoyed by Jewish Americans whereas, quite the contrary is true. Another interesting point is that this interview bears the same date as the text of the Polish Treaty, namely, June 30, 1919, but the interview appeared July 1, 1919 in the NEW YORK TIMES, while the Treaty was withheld until the day following.
Premier Clemenceau as quoted in the NEW YORK TIMES of July 2d defended the provisions above set out saying:
"The following articles are of a rather different nature, in that they provide special privileges to certain groups of these minorities: ****


... (7) On July 24 Mr. Marshall stated that:

"The horror of the Pogroms in Poland and Ukrainia will ‘stagger the world’ when the truth becomes known. Tens of thousands of Jews have been killed. The pogroms were not so much the result of an organized movement as they were the outgrowth of unsettled anarchistic tendencies in the countries where they occurred. They found expression in attacks of Jews."
Heretofore he has never mentioned the Ukraine in his interviews, except very casually.
On August 1, 1919 Mr. Marshall made public the following telegram dated July 30, 1919 from Leo Motkin, Secretary of the "Combined Jewish Committee of the World” at Paris:
"Zuckerman arrived and confirms former communications. He reports new and terrible Pogroms which occurred during June at Kaminets, Podolsk, Kitaigorod, Ourinine, et cetera. The latest news is certified by three Rabbis and by other Jewish representatives at Khotine. I know these men who are from the Ukraine. They state that altogether 120,000 have been killed. In Proskurof alone 3,964 inhabitants and numerous passing people have been killed and 2,000 wounded. Among the killed were 1500 school children. Ukrainian Judaism fears total extermination. It is impossible to check the exact figures. In all of the pogroms undoubtedly dozens of thousands have been massacred."
The Department has in its files a dispatch (heretofore referred to on Page 17) dated April 2, 1919 from the American Commissioner at Constantinople quoting Rabbi Tittlebaum in which he stated hundreds of thousands of Jews had been killed and wounded in the Ukraine and that 5000 were killed in Proscorog alone. This information undoubtedly came to Mr. Marshall in April. Why then, has the story remained unpublished all these months? It is asserted by the Poles to be because such a publication would have weakened, if not utterly destroyed the case which they claim the Jews were so laboriously building up in support of their minority rights in Poland.
On August 2, 1919 the day following the publication of the above telegram, the Ukrainian National Committee in New York issued a statement in part as follows:
"There are not and have not been pogroms in Ukraine outside the zone of Bolshevism. While unfortunately it probably is true that there have been many innocent victims of lawless bands in Ukraine, just as there have been Jewish victims of the Polish soldiery in Galicia, the killings are the work of the Bolsheviki and the Bolsheviki alone." ******

Luis Walter Alvarez
Luis W. Alvarez (June 13, 1911 – September 1, 1988) was an American experimental physicist and inventor, who spent nearly all of his long professional career on the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley. The American Journal of Physics commented, "Luis Alvarez (1911–1988) was one of the most brilliant and productive experimental physicists of the twentieth century." He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1968, and took out over 40 patents, some of which led to commercial products.
In the fall of 1943, Alvarez returned to the United States with an offer from Robert Oppenheimer to work at Los Alamos on the Manhattan project. But Oppenheimer suggested that he first spend a few months at the University of Chicago working with Enrico Fermi before coming to Los Alamos. During these months, General Leslie Groves asked Alvarez to think of a way that the US could find out if the Germans were operating any nuclear reactors, and, if so, where they were. Alvarez suggested that an airplane carrying a system to detect the radioactive gases that a reactor produces, particularly xenon 133. The equipment did fly over Germany but detected no radioactive xenon because the Germans did not succeed in building a reactor capable of a chain reaction. This was the first idea of monitoring fission products for intelligence gathering. It would become extremely important after the war.
As a result of his radar work and the few months spent with Fermi, Alvarez arrived at Los Alamos in the spring of 1944, later than many of his contemporaries. The work on Little Boy (uranium bomb) was far along so Alvarez became involved in the design of Fat Man (plutonium bomb). The technique used for uranium, that of forcing the two sub-critical masses together using a type of gun, would not work with plutonium because the high level of background spontaneous neutrons would cause fissions as soon as the two parts approached each other, leading to heat and expansion forcing the system apart before much energy has been released. It was decided to use a nearly critical sphere of plutonium and compress it quickly by explosives into a much smaller and denser core, which was a technical challenge at the time.
To create the symmetrical implosion required to compress the plutonium core to the required density, thirty two explosives were to be simultaneously detonated around the spherical core. Using conventional explosive techniques with blasting caps, efforts to accomplish simultaneity to within a small fraction of a microsecond were discouraging. Alvarez directed his graduate student, Lawrence Johnston, to develop a method of using a large capacitor to deliver a high voltage charge directly to each explosive lens, replacing blasting caps with exploding-bridgewire detonators. The exploding wire detonated the thirty two charges to within a few tenths of a microsecond. The invention was absolutely critical to the success of the Trinity and Nagasaki plutonium bomb explosions. Alvarez himself comments on this in his autobiography "Alvarez, Adventures of a Physicist" by saying:
    With modern weapons-grade uranium, the background neutron rate is so low that terrorists, if they had such material, would have a good chance of setting off a high-yield explosion simply by dropping one half of the material onto the other half. Most people seem unaware that if separated U-235 is at hand, it's a trivial job to set off a nuclear explosion, whereas if only plutonium is available, making it explode is the most difficult technical job I know.
Working with his student, Lawrence Johnston, Alvarez's last task for the Manhattan Project was to develop a set of calibrated microphone/transmitters to be parachuted from an aircraft in order to measure the strength of the blast wave from the atomic explosion. This would allow the scientists to be able to calculate the energy of the bomb. Flying in the B-29 The Great Artiste in formation with the Enola Gay, Alvarez measured the blast effect of the first bomb which fell on Hiroshima. A few days later again flying in the Great Artiste, Johnston used the same equipment to measure the strength of the Nagasaki explosion.
Alvarez proposed in 1965 to "X-Ray" the Egyptian pyramids to search for unknown chambers. Using naturally occurring cosmic rays, his ingenious scheme was to place spark chambers, standard equipment in the high-energy particle physics of this time, beneath the second pyramid of Chephren in a known chamber. By measuring the counting rate of the cosmic rays in different directions the detector would reveal the existence of any void in the overlaying rock structure.
Alvarez assembled an international team of physicists and archeologists from both the United States and Egypt, the recording equipment was constructed and the experiment carried out, though it was interrupted by the 1967 Six-Day War. Restarted after the war, the effort continued, recording and analyzing the penetrating cosmic rays until 1969 when Alvarez reported to the American Physical Society that no chambers had been found in the 19% of the pyramid surveyed.
In November 1966 Life Magazine published a series of photographs from the film that Abraham Zapruder took of the Kennedy assassination. Alvarez, an expert in optics and photoanalysis, became intrigued by the pictures and began to delve deeply into what could be learned from the film. The result of this was that Alvarez proved conclusively both in theory and experiment that the backward snap of the President’s head was completely consistent with his being shot from behind, which would have been the case if Lee Harvey Oswald were the assassin. He also investigated the timing of the gun shots and the shockwave which disturbed the camera, the speed of the camera, and pointed out a number of things which the FBI photoanalysts either overlooked or got wrong. He produced a paper intended as a tutorial, with informal advice for the physicist intent on arriving at the truth.
Dinosaur extinction
In 1980 Alvarez and his son, geologist Walter Alvarez, "uncovered a calamity that literally shook the Earth and is one of the great discoveries about Earth’s history"
Walter Alvarez was doing geological research in central Italy during the 1970s on the walls of a gorge whose limestone layers included strata both above and below the so-called K–T boundary (sometimes called the K-Pg), the boundary between the Cretaceous and Tertiary periods corresponding to a time of 65.95 million years ago (Kuiper et al., 2008). Exactly at the boundary is a layer of clay about 1 cm thick. Walter removed a small piece of the rock containing both sections of limestone and the clay layer and later showed it to his father. Walter said "This layer marks where the dinosaurs and much else went extinct. Nobody knows why. Or what the clay is about. A big mystery!", and intended to discover why from then on.
One of the first things Alvarez did was to try to figure out how long it had taken to lay down the centimeter of clay. It was not an easy question to solve considering the events happened 65 million years ago, but he thought he might be able to use the very slow deposition of iridium on earth from the cosmos as a kind of clock. Elements of the platinum group, including iridium, are rare in interplanetary space, but much more abundant than on Earth. There is very little iridium in the Earth's crust, but the planet is constantly bombarded with micrometeorites which, as they burn up in the atmosphere, lightly dust the surface with iridium at a constant and known rate. Alvarez reasoned that if there were a lot of iridium in the clay layer, then the clay layer had formed over a long time, and if there was very little, then the clay layer had formed in a short time.
Alvarez had access to the nuclear chemists at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and was able to work with Frank Asaro and Helen Michel. The chemists used a technique known as neutron activation analysis and were astounded to discover that exactly at the clay boundary the iridium content was enormous, but not in the limestone on either side. Whatever had caused the iridium content in the clay, it was far too high to have come from micrometeorites. Carefully checking their work, the next step was to determine if the clay from other locations contained the same level of iridium (the K-Pg clay is well known and is distributed worldwide), which it did. Within a few years of the publication of their paper, more than 100 iridium-containing clay sites were found. The team, knowing of no terrestrial source which could produce and deliver so much iridium, concluded that the source had to be extraterrestrial.[8] In the years following their publication the clay was also found to contain soot, glassy spherules, shocked quartz crystals, microscopic diamonds, and other rare minerals formed only under conditions of great temperature and pressure.
They considered a number of possible sources for the iridium anomaly; the passage of Earth through giant nebular clouds, a nearby supernova, and other low probability scenarios. With time, effort, and subsequent experimentation, all of these were eliminated, leaving a direct impact on the earth by a comet or an asteroid as the only hypothesis which could satisfy all of the conditions, the impact hypothesis, a significant challenge to current theory.
They published their paper in 1980; there was criticism from the geological community, and an often acrimonious scientific debate ensued. Ten years after this initial proposal, after Alvarez's death, evidence of a huge impact crater called Chicxulub off the coast of Mexico strongly supported their theory. Other researchers later found that the end-Cretaceous extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs may have occurred over thousands of years, rather than millions of years as had previously been accepted. Others continue to study such theories as increased volcanism, particularly the massive Deccan Traps eruptions that occurred around the same time, and climate change, checking against the fossil record. Significantly, however, on March 4, 2010, a panel of 41 scientists agreed that the Chicxulub asteroid impact triggered the mass extinction.
