"Why do you think the Media is so important to us? You have (as
a society), in your hypnotized comatose state, given your Free Will consent to the state your planet is in
today. You saturate your minds with the unhealthy dishes served up for you on your televisions that you are
addicted to, violence, pornography, greed, hatred, selfishness, incessant 'bad news', fear and 'terror'. When
was the last time you stopped, to think of something beautiful and pure? The planet is the way it is, because
of your collective thoughts about it. You are complicit
in your inaction, every time you 'look the other way' when you see an injustice. Your
'thought' at the sub-conscious level of creation to the Creator, is your allowance of these things to occur.
In so doing, you are serving our purpose."

"We journalists ... have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in
selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else's country... That means always challenging the
official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For
propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home...
In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of
countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on

1. Palestine, the World's
July 26, 2011
The nations of the world that endorse the creation of the new Palestinian state are shown in green ...
In 24 hours the UN Security Council will meet, and the world has an opportunity to embrace a new
proposal that could turn the tide on decades of failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks: UN
recognition of the state of Palestine.
Over 120 nations from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America have already endorsed this
initiative, but Israel's right-wing government and the US are vehemently trying to block it. Australia
is still undecided. Only a massive urgent public push now could tip the government to back this
momentous opportunity to move towards Palestinian self determination and an end to this bloody
US-led peace initiatives have failed for decades. But now most of the world is coming behind this bold
new initiative, that could be the best opportunity to jump start a resolution of the conflict. We've got one
day to call on the Australian government to endorse this statehood bid now, and make clear that citizens
across the country support this legitimate, non-violent, diplomatic proposal. Sign the urgent petition and
send this to everyone:
While the roots of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are complex, most people on all sides agree that the best
path to peace now is the creation of two states. But repeated peace processes have been undermined by violence
on both sides, extensive Israeli settlement-building in the West Bank, and the humanitarian blockade on Gaza. The
Israeli occupation has shrunk and fragmented the territory for a Palestinian state and made daily life a crippling
ordeal for the Palestinian people. The UN, World Bank and IMF have all recently announced that
Palestinians are ready to run an independent state, but say the main constraint to success is
the Israeli occupation. Even the US President has called for an end to settlement expansion and a return to the
1967 borders with mutually agreed land-swaps, but Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has furiously refused to
It’s time for a dramatic shift away from a futile peace process and on to a new path for
progress. While the Israeli and US governments are calling the Palestinian initiative ‘unilateral’ and
dangerous, in fact the world’s nations overwhelmingly support this diplomatic move away from
violence. Global recognition of Palestine could crush extremists, and foster a growing
non-violent Palestinian-Israeli movement in step with the democratic momentum across the region. Most
importantly, it will rescue a path to a negotiated settlement, allow the Palestinians access to a variety of
international institutions that can help advance Palestinian freedom, and send a clear signal to Israel’s
pro-settler government that the world will no longer accept their impunity and intransigence.
For too long, Israel has undermined the hope for a Palestinian state. For too long, the US has appeased them, and
for too long Europe has hidden behind the US. Right now Australia is on the fence about Palestinian
statehood. We have just 24 hours to appeal to the government to stand on the right side of
history and support a Palestinian declaration of freedom and independence, with overwhelming support, and
financial aid. Sign the urgent petition now for long-term peace in Israel
Palestinian statehood will not bring a resolution to this intractable conflict overnight, but UN recognition will
change the dynamics and will begin to unlock the door towards freedom and peace. Across Palestine, people
are preparing, with hope and expectation, to reclaim a freedom their generation has never known. Let's stand with
them and push our leaders to do the same, as they have stood with the people of Egypt, Syria and

2. Falsified Major Media Reports On
By Stephen Lendman
16 August 2011
Major media specialize in
what they do best: truth inversion (aka bad fiction), not doing what journalists are supposed to do - their job,
especially covering imperial wars for dominance and rich spoils.
With Libya's National
Transitional Council (NTC) falling apart and rebel forces in disarray, today's headlines belie the truth,
reported by independent "un-in-bed-with" journalists and other sources.
On August 16, Lizzie
Phelan's Libya diary "clear(ed) up the latest media rubbish on Libya," saying:
Gaddafi forces liberated
the "hitherto rebel-held" town of Misrata. "Last night, the Libyan army moved into the center of the city, and
now the rebels are trapped between Misrata and Tawergha."
About three-fourths of the
city, including its port, is secured, "which was a lifeline" for shipping rebels arms and other supplies.
At a press conference
attended by around 200 tribes (including the four largest comprising half the population), Libya's media
spokesman, Dr. Moussa Ibrahim, confirmed it.
Th major four, including
Wafalla, Tarhouna, Zlitan and Washafana, all support Gaddafi.
"The tribal leaders also
confirmed that Zawiya and Sorman are secure, in contrast to (falsified) claims by (in bed with) foreign
reporters in Tripoli and Djerba (Tunisia) that they have been taken by the rebels."
In addition, claims that
rebels control Ghuriyan are untrue. Ongoing clashes there continue.
Major media reports lie,
although pockets of rebel resistance remain. Nonetheless, they're "isolated and surrounded by the Libyan army
Falsified major media
reports stand in stark contrast to "Libyan tribes who, of course, know their land with great intimacy."
It's clear media bosses
want Libyans demoralized to think all is lost so give up. In addition, NATO's "been desperately trying to secure
some victory before August 17 (Ramadan's 17th day), a very important date in the Islamic calendar.
On Ramadan's 17th day in
624 AD in the Islamic calendar, the Prophet Muhammad won an important Battle of Badr victory in present day
Saudi Arabia. It was a key turning point against his opponents.
Fast-forwarding to today,
major media sources falsify reports "to create confusion and panic on the ground."
In an August 15 telephone
address to supporters massed in Green Square, Gaddafi "reasserted his calls for the Libyan people to remain
steadfast in defeating NATO's allies on the ground and NATO itself."
Phelan also said
unconfirmed reports say rebel commander Khalifa Hefter was captured, the former army officer turned CIA asset,
having formerly lived near its Langley, VA headquarters since the early 1990s.
If true, it'll will create
more disarray among TNC leaders, perhaps better described as the gang that can't shoot or get their stories
"So the media war goes on,"
said Phelan, on the ground in Tripoli, reporting important truths on her Lizzie's Liberation site, accessed
through the following link:
Contrasting Falsified Major
The vulgarity of lying
needs no comment. Doing it for a living is beyond reproach. It doesn't deter takers, however, like New York
Times writers David Kirkpatrick and Kareem Fahim headlining, "A Top Libyan Official Appears to Defect, as Rebels
Defend Recent Gains," saying:
Interior Minister Nassr
al-Mabrouk "landed in Cairo in a private plane with nine family members who were traveling on tourist
visas....The defection would signal a new crack in the Qaddafi government...."
Al-Mabrouk didn't defect as
widely reported. He left for an operation in Cairo, saying he stands firmly with Gaddafi. It's unsurprising he'd
want family members with him for support.
Kirkpatrick and Fahim
continued saying, "(R)ebels, emboldened by their gains in recent days, are losing incentive to make
Falsified rebel gains are,
in fact, unreported losses and disarray. Moreover, without NATO air support, they'd have been routed months ago.
Air cover also gave NATO a chance to slaughter and injure thousands of Libyan civilians, as well as cause
horrific mass destruction, related to imperial, not military, aims.
Both Times writers also
reported rebel claims of having Tripoli surrounded as well as key supply lines cut off. None of it is true, but
fact-checking isn't part of Times writers' job description - just reporting accounts ordered by their bosses.
From Tripoli, independent
journalist/Middle East/Central Asian analyst Mahdi Nazemroaya explained in a morning email:
"The insurgency was
defeated in Misurata. NATO responded with massive bombing. One route is controlled. Zawiya and Sorman have not
fallen. There have been attacks on the route. They are trying to cut the supply routes off" but haven't
On August 15, Washington
Post writer Leila Fadel was no better than other accounts headlining, "Gaddafi isolated as rebels advance, aide
flies to Cairo," falsifying the same agitprop as their Times counterparts, claiming rebels have "a stranglehold
on the Libyan capital, Tripoli."
London Guardian writers are
also complicit, headlining the following August 15 and 16 stories, better described as media lies:
August 15: "Libya's
interior minister flies to Egypt in apparent defection"
August 15: "Libyan rebels
enter oil town where decisive battle may yet be fought"
Fact check: Zawiya was
referred to, securely controlled by Gaddafi's forces.
August 15: "No stalemate in
Libya - the writing is on the wall for Gaddafi"
August 16: "Libya shows
signs of slipping from Muammar Gaddafi's grasp"
August 16: "Live Syria,
Libya and Middle East unrest - live updates," many, in fact, falsified like others.
Al Zajeera is also
complicit in misreporting on Libya. On August 16, it headlined, "Libyan rebels push to isolate Tripoli,"
sounding more like CNN, Fox News, and The New York Times than legitimate journalists.
The report repeated the
same misinformation about isolating Tripoli, controlling most of Zawiya, and other distortions.
An earlier August 12 report
claimed "Fleeing Libyans say Gaddafi regime crumbling" as rebels advance toward the capital. Again untrue.
Al Jazeera, of course, is
based in, funded by, and controlled by Qatar, a coalition NATO partner against Libya, its armed forces
supporting rebels on the ground.
As a result, it reports
lack credibility and should be avoided. Angry Arab editor As'ad AbuKhalil says they're "like watching MSNBC
after being purchased by Murdoch."
Of course, it's worthless
under its current owner, Comcast, and previous one, General Electric, especially on issues of war and peace, as
well as lawless US imperialism.
A Final Comment
The battle for Libya
continues. Overwhelming numbers support Gaddafi and want their country free from imperial control. They're also
prepared to fight for it, knowing the unacceptable alternative - colonization, pillaging, loss of freedom, and
perhaps their lives.
What better reasons to
resist than those!

3. The Meaning of the British
Riots: Corruption At The Top Leads to Lawlessness by the
Global Research, August 13, 2011
By Washington's Blog
I've repeatedly noted that corruption and lawlessness by
our "leaders" encourages lawlessness by everyone else. See this, for example.
Peter Oborne - the Daily Telegraph's chief political commentator -
The criminality in our
streets cannot be dissociated from the moral disintegration in the highest ranks of modern British society. The
last two decades have seen a terrifying decline in standards among the British governing elite. It has become acceptable
for our politicians to lie and to cheat. An almost universal culture of selfishness and greed has grown

without hope or aspiration ... have caused such mayhem and chaos over the past few days. But the rioters have
this defence: they are just
following the example set by senior and respected figures in society.Let’s bear in mind that
many of the youths in our inner cities have never been trained in decent values. All they have ever known is
barbarism. Our politicians and bankers, in sharp contrast, tend to have been

Cabinet. It embraces the police and large parts of our media. It is not just its damaged youth, but Britain itself that needs a moral
Osborne also gives specific
examples of corruption, such as the prime minister's involvement in the Murdoch scandal, and members of
parliament abusing expense accounts.
Indeed, the rioters themselves agreed. As Reuters notes:
Speaking to Reuters late on Tuesday, looters and other local people in east London pointed to
the wealth gap as the underlying cause, also blaming what they saw as police prejudice and a host of recent
Spending cuts were now hitting the
poorest hardest, they said, and after tales of politicians claiming excessive expenses, alleged police

the London district of Hackney. "It's time to
(Indeed, looting by the
bankers has been shown by a
Nobel prize winning economist as being the root cause of the S&L
crisis and today's economic crisis).
Austerity Leads To Rioting And
I've previously argued that the British riots are due to bad economic policy which has created rampant
inequality. (As I've noted for
years, raging inequality and policies which help the big boys at the expense of the "little people" are causing unrest - not just
in Egypt - but worldwide.)
As the above-quoted Reuters article notes:
"I don't think the implications of
this have been fully thought through or accepted yet," said Pepe Egger, western Europe analyst for London-based
consultancy Exclusive Analysis.
"What we have here is the result of
decades of growing divisions and marginalization, but austerity will almost certainly make it worse. Yes,
the police can restore control with massive force but that is not sustainable either in the long term.
You have to accept that this may happen again."
Analyst Louise Taggart at
security consultancy AKE said that in time urban unrest worries could make it harder to cut other programs as
well, including sorely needed education and community services. It went well beyond Britain, she
"Across Europe, we've already seen some incidence of civil
unrest," she said, saying it would almost inevitably impact policy. "There's definitely a likelihood that
similar scenes might erupt when austerity cuts really start to be felt."
Indeed, a study this month
by economists Hans-Joachim Voth and Jacopo Ponticelli shows that
- from 1919 to the present - austerity leads to violence and instability:
Does fiscal consolidation
lead to social unrest? From the end of the Weimar Republic in
Germany in the 1930s to anti-government demonstrations in Greece in
2010-11, austerity has tended to go hand in hand with politically motivated violence and social instability. In
this paper, we assemble cross-country evidence for the period 1919 to the present, and examine the extent to
which societies become unstable after budget cuts. The results show a clear positive correlation between fiscal
retrenchment and instability. We test if the relationship simply reflects economic downturns, and conclude that
this is not the key factor. We also analyse interactions with various economic and political variables. While
autocracies and democracies show a broadly similar responses to budget cuts, countries with more constraints on
the executive are less likely to see unrest as a result of austerity measures.
As CNN notes:
Studying instances of
austerity and unrest in Europe between 1919 to 2009, Ponticelli and Voth conclude that there is a
“clear link between the magnitude of expenditure cutbacks and increases in social unrest. With every additional
percentage point of GDP in spending cuts, the risk of unrest increases.”
“Expenditure cuts carry a
significant risk of increasing the frequency of riots, anti-government demonstrations, general strikes,
political assassinations, and attempts at revolutionary overthrow of the established order. While these are low
probability events in normal years, they become much more common as austerity measures are
And Austerity = Global Unrest
Global Spin blog
sums up these two threads nicely:
Simply working hard and
playing by the rules is no longer a path to prosperity or even a dignified future in much of the industrialized
West, where neoliberal economic policies have funneled most of the wealth created in recent decades to a small,
already wealthy elite, while shrinking the middle class finds its living standard steadily declining, and more
than one in five young people is unemployed with no prospect of finding work in the foreseeable
The looters respond to their
circumstances by simply breaking the rules and grabbing whatever they can, while the moment -- and their
capacity to hurt anyone who gets in their way -- allows it. The protestors, who are far more numerous, despond
by demanding that the rules be changed, and they're on the streets because they believe that even the
democratic political system has failed them, producing governments in thrall to the interests of financial
elites regardless of which party dominates. And the British anti-austerity programs are echoed on the streets
of Madrid and Barcelona, Rome and Lisbon,
Athens and Tel Aviv -- an
Austerity Intifada is sweeping Europe.
The term "looting" commonly
describes the actions of those who help themselves to the merchandize of stricken stores when social order
breaks down. But many of those in the more orderly protests on the streets of Europe accuse the
Western world's bankers of doing the same to the state, demanding bailouts to save them from the consequences
of their catastrophic mistakes, leaving them sitting pretty while public debt balloons and the middle class and
poor are expected to shoulder the burden of austerity.
Whether they respond with
disciplined protest or nihilism and criminality, millions of young people in Europe today see
playing by the rules of the socio-economic and political status quo as offering them no decent future.
Politicians may comfort themselves with the notion that the social unrest on the streets is simply a problem of
a "culture of irresponsibility" and deviance, but if mainstream society is unable to integrate whole swathes of
its youth population and give them a stake in playing by the rules, it's going to face growing discontent.
The protests that have
shaken Spain, Greece, Portugal, France,
Israel and Britain this year (even before this week's rioting) suggest that
the pattern continues. The orgy of looting and vandalism that Britain suffered this week may have been simply
the ugly Halloween face of a far broader wave of social unrest that expresses not simply economic discontent,
butthe declining legitimacy of the political
system in the minds of millions of people who see it as serving the interests of a narrow elite at the expense
of the majority.
More vigorous policing will
drive the thugs off the streets and restore a tenuous calm. But keeping them off the streets, and integrating
them -- and the hundreds of thousands who have poured onto the streets in peaceful protests -- into a
socio-economic system that offers them a future and a stake in social stability is a challenge that may be
nearing crisis proportions.
Recently Tony Blair (aka
Tony Bliar), the ex-PM of Great Britain, declared that England isn't in the grip of a moral decline (as if he'd
know anyway!): "I think we are in danger of the wrong analysis leading to the wrong diagnosis, leading to the
wrong prescription," he said. He blamed “the group of young, alienated, disaffected youth who are outside the
social mainstream,” for the riots. Then he quipped in with the blatant lie that above all else, “they’re not
symptomatic of society at large.” There is no moral crisis in Great Britain (i.e. if you have the morals of
Tony Blair). He blames the bad element, while of course exonerating himself from this classification. He says
that the bad element in British society do not have an individual problem, they have a family problem: “Many of
these people are from families that are profoundly dysfunctional, operating on completely different terms from
the rest of society.” The gang culture, like the culture in the military and police, gives these people a
twisted sense of belonging. “We have to be prepared to intervene family by family, and at an early age, before
criminality has a chance to take root.”
Of course all this diatribe
that slides so easily out of his lying mouth is just the pot calling the kettle black. The fact is that Blair
and his satanic cronies worldwide have created the template and the conditions for the mayhem and chaos we are
now beginning to witness on the largest scale the world will ever witness. This is because these politicians
(appropriately the word comes from the Old English for prostitute!) are doing the dirty work of the money-power
elite (commonly referred to as the Illuminati), whose agenda has always been to “make the West stink.” Of
course we have allowed this to happen, by not fighting the downward spiral in our our personal moral lives.
Sadly, we have gone along for the ride, with hardly a whimper of protest or recognition (See Defining the Spiritual War You Failed To
Fight, and Character Deficiency Syndrome).
Just recently Peter
Hitchens, writing in the Daily Mail (UK), August 20, 2011, made the following important
“It is now clear that we
have learned nothing from seeing our cities in flames and our streets ruled by violent thieves.
The governing elite have
decided to respond by pretending to be fierce for a few weeks.
But they will do nothing to
change the policies which brought us to this state. These policies will continue, and so will the consequences.
The Prime Minister David
Cameron, who has a great talent for faking anger and concern over things he couldn’t care less about, gave a
speech on Monday that could have been delivered by his idol Anthony Blair.
Mr. Cameron declared that
‘Government cannot legislate to change behaviour.’
This is both defeatist and
untrue. The whole Fabian socialist project, which revolutionized our
nation throughout the 20th century and which eventually took over the Tory Party itself, was intended to change
behaviour, and did so.
So is the new program which
has replaced it, the politically correct drive for ‘equality and diversity.’
The 1969 Divorce
Reform Act completely changed the nature and standing of marriage. The Children Act of
1989 sharply reduced adult authority.
The consequences of the
Human Rights Acts are limitless. The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, decriminalized
cannabis with huge results for behaviour. So did the abolition of the old alcohol licensing laws.
Justice Acts have robbed the courts of power. What does he mean, ‘government cannot legislate to
It can, and it does—but
always in the wrong direction.”
4. 25 Ordinary Citizens Write Iceland's
New Constitution With Help From Social Media
The newest government in
the world was designed with help from comments on the Internet. God help us all. After Iceland’s economic
collapse in 2008, the island nation decided it was time to write a new constitution, this one not based on its
parent country of Denmark but rather made from the original ideas of its citizens. Iceland’s small population of
320,000 elected 25 assembly members from 522 ordinary candidates (including lawyers, political science
professors, journalists, and many other professions), who in turnopened their process up to the public in an unprecedented
fashion. The Constitutional Council was highly active on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr, where they solicited comments and suggestions for the new
government. On Friday July 29th, 2011, the Iceland parliament officially received the new constitution, comprised of 114 articles divided into 9 chapters. Set to be reviewed, and
then put before vote for ratification by October 1st, the internet-assisted document marks a possible paradigm
shift in governing. In the 21st Century,
we’re writing our constitutions with social media. The future is a crazy place.
From the elections to the
website, Iceland has gone to great length to make their citizens feel involved and enabled by the process of
writing the new constitution. Candidates for the constitutional assembly gathered thousands of signatures to
appear on the ballot, and discussed their views publicly on 50 radio show presentations. The candidates also
wrote about themselves on public websites including Wikipedia and Facebook. After The Constitutional Council was
formed, there was a constant upstream of their proceedings to Twitter, and Facebook, along with regular photo
updates on Flickr. You can find videos of The Constitutional Council on YouTube, but they’re in Icelandic. Just
to give you a taste, here’s the inaugural meeting…opening with a song!
In many ways then, the new
Iceland constitution was the first to ever be born completely in the public eye. Sure, constitutional assemblies
are often open to some sort of public scrutiny, but Iceland’s was broadcast on the internet. Council members
regularly interacted with commenters, and every week the latest drafts of the various chapters (or the work
related to their writing) were shared via a public website. Live broadcasts of the open council meetings were shown every Thursday via
their site as well as Facebook. There was even a regular e-newsletter. Iceland used the web like never before to
open up their process to the world and attract the attention of their public.
The Constitutional Council handed the proposed draft to the Parliament last week, but it's too soon to know if
social media was the right answer for this challenge.
Yet the enthusiasm from the
public hasn’t exactly been stellar (maybe they didn’t like the singing?). Despite the historic nature of the
constitutional elections, little more than a third of Iceland actually voted (83,531 or 35.95% of the ~230,000
eligible voters). That election, by the way, was deemed invalid by the Supreme Court of the nation due to
problems with voter privacy, and the parliament had to eventually appoint the same elected candidates to the
Constitutional Council in order to get things rolling. It’s unclear how that debacle tainted the opinion of the
council in the eyes of the Icelandic public. While the social media presence has been active during the writing
of the constitution, the main website only garnered about 1600 comments. That’s certainly a lot for the Council
to wade through, but I’m not sure you can call it a mandate from Iceland’s people – especially when you consider
many comments were made from interested parties from all over the world.
The lessons we are to learn
from Iceland’s new constitution, then, are a mixed bag. It’s absolutely amazing that an entire structure of
government was made with help from social media and in total view of the world. Anyone from Reykjavík to Rio de Janeiro could watch and even give
input to how Iceland should be governed. But that didn’t guarantee widespread public support nor
even success. The new constitution is 700+ pages of ideals that may or may not be ratified come October, and
whose ultimate benefit to Iceland is uncertain. Crowd-sourcing a constitution was a remarkably ballsy move, but
it will take years before we know if it was a smart one.
1000 points to
Iceland for being progressive, daring, and crazy enough to undergo this revolutionary approach to government
1,000,000,000 points to
whoever can find a way to learn from this example and successfully leverage the power of social media to truly make
the world a better place to live.

Left, a scene from "V is for Vendetta" -- "The most blatantly honest Illuminati project I
have yet viewed."
The Illuminati exert influence in popular visual media to an extraordinary extent.
Every major film script that is in pre-production mode is
submitted to key Illuminati subordinates whose role is to assess the script for
potential alterations or insertions. These changes may be major or minor, depending on the material of the
Additionally, these subordinates comprise a tightly managed think tank which surveys the progress of Illuminati
propaganda in global societies. The members make decisions about which themes are ready for further amplification
in popular media. Then, detailed descriptions of desired creative projects are handed down to a further subordinate
(but not necessarily knowledgeable) group of highly skilled writers, who create the scripts for these projects.
Different projects are created to target different sectors of the global
population. That may seem logically obvious, but it's worth stating. Grossly blatant
Illuminati messages are more often couched in films of excessive violence, sexual content, outright weirdness, and
so on, in order to distract viewers from the fact that external ideas are being inserted forcefully into their

explanation for this is that once a viewer makes the decision to ACCEPT the violence and the sex, and so on, his or
her mind remains open to the ideas that the film is meant to insert into their minds.
Very often, the decision is made not to insert any open messages into film projects. This is due to two very simple
rules: too much openness exposes the process; and, gradual
influence is far more powerful and effective in the long run. In the event that no open
messages are going to be inserted, two other options remain which still allow for gradual influence to build.
The first is Signature Symbology. The Illuminati have, over time, generated a huge set of symbols and visual icons
which, in partnership with the more blatant messages, exert an impressive (some would say frightening) measure of
influence on public thought.
These are the Signatures of Illuminati interference in a project. When viewers see a symbol inserted into a film,
this event draws up memories of past encounters with that symbol, and of any messages or themes attached to that
This is often what some people call an "unconscious" or "subliminal" process. I call it "unreflective", for the
simple reason that most people are just not paying any attention to the
influences that affect them deeply.
Of course everyone wants to leap on the "Illuminati eye" as a blatantly repetitive symbol
these days. That's a misguided judgment, and I'll get to that part soon. An example of a less obvious Signature
Symbol is the gargoyle. Any film or
other production featuring even brief glimpses of gargoyles is announcing that it has the Illuminati stamp of
The second option is influence over the music attached to a project. Film music - well, music in general - holds a
powerful influence over viewers and listeners. Similar musical themes across various projects excite unreflective
(or subliminal) memories even more deeply than do visual symbols.
One of the tactics of the Illuminati is to present a large set of what we could call Distraction Symbols. The very name "Illuminati" is itself a
Distraction Symbol. Distraction Symbols are meant to occupy the attention of both the mildly curious thinkers and
the overly excitable conspiracy theorists.
Oftentimes, Distraction Symbols are in fact genuine signature symbols, but the publicly presented meanings of these
symbols are well-planned and tightly controlled propaganda. The meanings of Distraction Symbols have been either
completely falsified or else skewed just enough to push amateur analysts in the wrong directions.
Let's ask some questions. What do the Illuminati wish to accomplish? What do the subordinate participants in
Illuminati projects wish to accomplish? What are the major themes the Illuminati focus on presenting? Why have they
selected these particular themes?

The lower levels of human society will be completely sexualized. Sexuality will
saturate society. Sexual exploration will be encouraged from youth: hence the current seeding of child
sexualization. Sexual practice will be a mandate, not an option. At higher levels, true sexual mastery
will be taught.
(a former professional movie critic)
The Illuminati are seeding the public with
notions that gradually grow larger and more influential over time. They did it with
Feminism; they did it with
flexi-sexuality; they are doing it with
anti-religion and with
child sexualization now. They do this because
the future society they have planned must be structured differently from what we all know now. A
different structure requires citizens with different thinking who will accept that structure.
Satanism, Witchcraft, and
Are the Illuminati Satanists, in the strict sense of "Satanist"? Are they witches? Do they worship a tall,
horned guy with red skin? In all likelihood, no, but they heavily sponsor and support Satanic cultural
influences and themes. Obvious film vehicles for apparent Satanic ideology have included the works of
Roman Polanski (Rosemary's
Baby ; The Ninth Gate), several films starring Nicolas Cage (um, basically, everything over the past several
years), and Natalie Portman (same thing),
and even the somewhat recent animated Western-style film Rango. I could provide a longer list, and I
may do that later.
The Illuminati sponsor such projects in order to break the
public credibility of organized religions. The so-called "New World Order" (really,
it's The Other New World Order You Didn't Hear About) won't include any of the currently popular religions, or
their members. If you're a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, a Buddhist, a Daoist, a Satanist, or a member of any
subset of those, or of any other offhand cult, you're on "the list".
The essence of Kabbalah is that there exists no real opposition between what traditional religions have chosen
to label as "opposites", like Good and Evil. If you want a very straightforward representation of this, you can
try to find and view an early Yiddish film called The Dybbuk, and you'll see the Kabbalah in
action. A more recent film would be The Dark Crystal, directed by Jim Henson (the creator of the
Muppets). This film culminates in a scene where Good and Evil coalesce into perfect, ethereal beings of pure
light. It is the insertion of a small, perfect shard of crystal, into a very large and evil crystal, which
makes this transformation possible.
The most popular representation of Kabbalah philosophy has been the Star Wars series of films, comics, and books. It's no
accident that George Lucas was tapped to build these projects, and you can be sure that he did not do it alone.
The root derivative of the very name "Lucas" means "wolf". The wolf is one of the Illuminatis' more subtle
symbols, yet it is by now a constant infiltrator of film media, and that is to the point:
in the Protocols of Zion,
the Illuminati name themselves as wolves. More on this later.
Most viewers of the Star Wars films are not aware that George Lucas developed the spiritual format of Star Wars
culture to be precisely Kabbalistic. Within the space of the books and illustrated novels (comic books)
following the conclusion of "Episode 6" (Return of the Jedi), Luke Skywalker (Luke = Lucas) travels a new path
of exploration of "the Force", during which he attempts, successfully, to fuse the powers of the Good Side with
the powers of the Dark Side. He nearly loses out to the temptations of the sheer power of the Dark Side, but he
is narrowly saved by the love projected by his sister, Leia. He does not have to give up the Dark Side, once he
has been saved.
As has already been noted on Dr. Makow's site, recent films like Black Swan contain similar
Are the Illuminati Kabbalists? No. These Kabbalistic messages are only a rough transcription of the
Illuminatis' more finessed version of "Kabbalah". It is a fine-tuned Utilitarian Ethics, elitist in essence
because it is based on measured Intelligence. That means, that future human society is to have a hierarchy
arranged according to the intelligence levels of its members.
The Illuminati present Kabbalistic ideas to the public because according to Utilitarian Ethics, "good" and
"evil" are simplistic labels that destroy the human ability to make honest decisions.
(Left, Natalie Portman, nee Hershlag, in Closer, 2004)
Feminism, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, "the inner slut", sex without commitment, no-strings flings... There's
no point in providing a film list for this material, but I would recommend looking up Natalie Portman again.
What is this stuff all about? It just keeps getting more and more in-your-face. Why are the Illuminati so interested in "destroying traditional family values"? Is
it because they hate God? Is it because they hate all religious and traditional
No, that's not the point of it. The ultimate aim of the Illuminati is not to create a planet of confused and
violent degenerates, but to centralize reproductive control.
comment: This otherwise good article degenerates into trivial rubbish at this
point. The Illuminati hate God and everything He stands for, period! Of course the Illuminati want to destroy
the family, and they have done just that! The point is that the Illuminati aim to make the West "stink," so
that God, who will not tolerate evil once it becomes totally entrenched, will be the destroyer. This is satan's
big "fix," and he works on it always.]
In tandem with increasingly strict rules concerning what parents can and cannot do, the expansion of sexual
freedoms and the amplification of potential sexual proclivities is the pre-cursor to
a society that knows no central family
unit. This was - PARTLY - Plato's idea. Where the Illuminati differ from Plato
is that, whereas Plato intended only to scatter people's sentiments to include the body politic entirely
(because if there's no family, then everyone is family), the Illuminati are more intent on controlling
human evolution via the laboratory.
[Nazarene Remnant comment:
Notice how the young today have been bonded to each other, and their family bonding is
minimal and in many cases non-existant. When I was a school teacher, even in the early years, the creation
of Year Masters and Year Advisors, was always aimed at making the young people bond with each other and their year group. This
Illuminati goal has been easily achieved. Today satanists proclaim that the "youth" are theirs, and its not
hard to see why.]Read the Full Story:
The plan is that gradually home parenting will be proven, scientifically, and beyond all reasonable doubt, to
be less effective in producing stable individuals. Survival crises will mandate that random sexual intercourse - with an aim to REPRODUCTION -- must cease, in favor of test tube creations of
superior physical condition and stamina.
In the meantime, what to do with all that sexual desire that suddenly has no "purpose"? If people are not
trying to have babies, by fucking, then what are they going to be trying to do?
This is why the sexual fields of possibility are being seeded. Once the aim of reproduction has been wholly
distanced from sexual activity, then human sexuality will have to have an alternative destination.
[Nazarene Remnant comment: What we are actually reading about is planned genocide, whereby the young are encouraged and hoaxed not to reproduce themselves, but to go on enjoying the benefits of sexual
lust, without its long-term commitments and wholesomeness, which has always been a family with many
children. Unfortunately the majority of our youth have bought this lie without blinking and without thinking
through the long-term consequences for themselves and for society. But the really long-term agenda is to
suppress the knowledge of our destiny, which is to live forever, something that has been denied to the
members of the Illuminati. To find out the facts of the matter, see The Two Seeds of Genesis 3:15 ]

"Most homosexuals don't want to be homosexual, anymore than a schizophrenic wants to hear voices. A highly
respected colleague quietly told me that he cures 80% of the homosexuals that come to him."
Note: Rather than mental disease, I see homosexuality as a developmental disorder usually
caused by identifying with the wrong parent. I believe in live-and-let live. My concern is with the Illuminati
(satanist) campaign by corporations, schools and media to spread this disorder to healthy heterosexuals, under the
disguise of "tolerance," in order to destabilize society.]
By Anthony Carpenter
In 1973, the weight of empirical data, coupled with changing social norms and the development of a
politically active gay community, led the Board of Directors of the American Psychiatric Association to remove
homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Some psychiatrists who fiercely opposed this action subsequently circulated a petition calling for a vote on the
issue by the Association's membership. That vote was held in 1974, and the Board's decision was ratified.
1973 is the date that Satanists have gained control over the field of psychology. Today there is little protest
over taking the diagnosis of homosexuality out of the DSM. I believe from speaking with colleagues that many
professionals do not openly express their dismay with the removal of homosexuality from the DSM out of fear of
ridicule or even reprisal.
My personal experience standing up for the truth likewise has brought ridicule from both Satanists and
I believe homosexuality is a mental illness and a difficult illness to bear. Growing up homosexual is traumatizing
even to the strongest. They suffer through constant harassment from schoolmates, families and even strangers.
Depression is often a major issue with homosexuals. Most homosexuals in addition suffer from a broad spectrum of
psychosis and serious emotional disturbances.
Police and prison guards tell me that homosexuals cause more trouble than 20 normal inmates combined. They place
the homosexuals in the same cell blocks for their own safety and to concentrate the dramas they instigate in an
area isolated from the general prison population.
The Satanic line is that homosexuality is normal, not a disease. Therefore they give the homosexuals no hope of a
cure because you don't need to cure the normal. They give the green light to activities that threaten public health
and safety. Humanity is threatened with extinction in sub-Saharan Africa because of promiscuous hetero- and
homosexual behavior. Sadly we see this green light given daily for these amoral activities in our

Be assured however, the Satanists do not want a cure to be known. Its part of their plan to destroy humanity.
Therapists that insinuate that it can be cured are persecuted, humiliated and could find themselves embroiled with

8. Zionists Admit Breivik is
Fjordman! Breivik, Rightist Mass Murderer, 'Atlas Shrugged'
A far-right Norwegian nationalist with ardent anti-Muslim views levelled savage blows at the mainstream political culture of his country with massive
attacks on the government building housing the prime minister’s office and a summer camp at which young
followers of the ruling Labor Party played. He killed 80 people. There are many questions raised by
the savagery of this attack. How could Norwegian security allow such a thing to happen in the heart of
Oslo, in a government facility housing the nation’s leader and political heart? How do we apprehend the
enormity of the devastation and the fact that it was wrought by a far-right terrorist targeting the country’s
liberal political leadership? But for me, another important question which no one, so far is asking is why
did most of the world first think the terrorist/s responsible were Muslim, when the actual killer hates
|The hand of the
Mossad: "Mossad is a master at false-flag terrorist attacks designed to alter
perceptions and punish opponents of Israeli policy. The fingerprints of Israeli intelligence
are all over the 9/11 attacks on the United States, the 3/22 train bombings in Madrid, the 7/7
transit bombings in London, and, now, the 7/22 attacks in Norway… While the Israeli-influenced corporate media has droned on and on about the dangers
of Islamist terrorism, it is now
obvious that the major threat to public safety comes from the State of Israel, a
rogue nation that does not hesitate to murder the innocent to achieve its sordid political
aims," Wayne Madsen, July 25, 2011.
In fact, this is what the New York Times wrote in its story which did report the political
affiliation of the killer:
Initial reports focused on the possibility of Islamic militants, in particular Ansar al-Jihad
al-Alami, or Helpers of the Global Jihad, cited by some analysts as claiming responsibility for the attacks.
American officials said the group was previously unknown and might not even exist.
There was ample reason for concern that terrorists might be responsible.
How’s that again? Are the only terrorists in the world Muslim? If so, what do
we call a right-wing nationalist capable of planting major bombs and mowing down scores of people for the
sake of the greater glory of his cause? If even a liberal newspaper like the Times can’t call this guy
a terrorist, what does that say about the mindset of the western world?
It’s absolutely imperative for the world to face the fact that for every Islamist willing to
resort to violence there is a right-wing nationalist willing to do the same. We can see that in the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Equally important to note that while there may be some on the left who
have resorted to violence (in this country in the 1960s for example), the overwhelming share of mayhem comes
from the political right. We can see that in Israel, where the extreme settler movement assassinated a
prime minister and murdered fellow Israeli Jews. The same holds true here in the U.S., where a white
supremacist, Jared Loughner, recently murdered a federal judge and several others in addition to nearly assassinating
Gabrielle Giffords, a Jewish member of Congress.
Norwegian bloggers are reporting that Breivik is the author of a blog called Fjordman and that he’s guest blogged for Atlas Shrugs, Jihad Watch and Gates of Vienna “for

there’ll be a Festschrift in his honor. And did you know he’s written a book (of course he has, he’s an

Whether it is Israel, the U.S., or Norway, if we wear blinders which prevent us from seeing that
Muslims are NOT the only people capable of mass political violence, then we have left ourselves vulnerable to
the ascendancy of a violent far-right political culture. If you examine what happened in 1995, when
Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated, the Israeli political liberal-centrist mainstream basically imploded after a
series of Palestinian bombings and the onset of the second Intifada. All of which enabled the
ascendancy of settler extremists and their Likud fellow travellers who have now taken control of Israel’s
political discourse. People now forget that one of the most savage acts of political incitement was a
speech delivered by Bibi Netanyahu from a Jerusalem balcony while members of the crowd brayed for blood
vengeance against Rabin. The assassination followed shortly thereafter. Bibi, the Likud and the
settlers have been the ones who gained the most politically from the murder.
I would never hold that the political left is wholly pure and virtuous, but when it comes to an
impulse to violence those on the far-right largely have the market cornered.

Blair: Former PM to Be Held to Account on Iraq in Chilcot Report on Iraq
Iraq war deal
'signed in blood' by former Prime Minister
Cabinet members kept in the dark
in build-up to the war
'Obvious failings' in post-war planning

31st July 2011
Tony Blair is to face scathing criticism from the official inquiry into the Iraq War for the role
he played in leading Britain into one of its biggest foreign policy fiascos in modern history. The Mail
on Sunday has been told that the former Prime Minister will be held to account on four main
1. Bogus claims that were made
about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.
2. Not telling the British public about his secret
pledge with George Bush to go to war.
3. Keeping the Cabinet in the dark by his 'sofa
4. Failing to plan to avoid the post-war chaos in
Well-placed sources say the reputations of Mr Blair and key
allies (undobtedly a reference to Australia's 33rd degree Freemason PM John Howard) will suffer major damage when
the report by Sir John
Chilcot’s (left) Iraq War inquiry is published this autumn.
Mr Blair, former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and ex-Downing Street spin doctor Alastair Campbell
are all expected to be criticised.
All those taken to task by Chilcot’s five-strong panel of experts will receive
notice in the next few weeks of the inquiry’s conclusions.
They will be given a final chance to respond to their alleged failings before
the report is finalised. Although it has not yet been written, clear indications have been given as to which areas
it will focus on.
The damning verdict of the Chilcot Inquiry comes eight years after
went to war against Saddam Hussein with George Bush. Australian Prime
Miniuste John Winston Howard should also fall under
damnation for his part
in this great national tragedy (and he will).
The damning verdict of the Chilcot Inquiry comes eight years after Mr Blair
went to war against Saddam Hussein with George Bush.
A total of 179 British soldiers died in Iraq while estimates for the number of
Iraqi dead vary from 100,000 to 650,000.
Although Saddam was toppled within weeks, the invasion led to a bloody
aftermath and there were claims that it contributed to increased terrorism in the UK and elsewhere.
In evidence, a defiant Tony Blair said he had no regrets about the war and maintained Britain would
ultimately be able to look back on it with 'immense pride'
The Chilcot Inquiry, set up by then Prime Minister Gordon Brown two years ago, is the third inquiry
into the conflict. It followed the Butler Inquiry into the intelligence failings and the Hutton Inquiry into the
death of Ministry of Defence weapons expert Dr David Kelly.
Inquiry chairman, former civil servant Sir John Chilcot, 72, was asked to conduct a more searching
investigation spanning the period from 2001, two years before the war, right through to 2009.
The Mail on Sunday understands that the inquiry rounds on Mr Blair for telling Parliament that
intelligence suggesting Saddam had WMDs was ‘beyond doubt’.

But he admitted he had misunderstood the claim in a Downing Street dossier that Saddam could launch
WMDs in 45 minutes.
He also conceded there was not a ‘growing’ threat from Saddam in the autumn of 2002 – despite
stating precisely that in the Commons before the war.
The inquiry report is also expected to criticise spin doctor Mr Campbell, whose denial that the
dossier on Saddam’s weapons was designed to ‘make the case for war’ was challenged by former spy chief
Major-General Michael Laurie, who was head of intelligence collection for the Defence Intelligence Agency.
Major-General Laurie told the inquiry two months ago: ‘Alastair Campbell said the purpose of the
dossier was not “to make a case for war”. I had no doubt at that time this was exactly its purpose and these very
words were used.
Although Saddam Hussein was toppled within weeks, the invasion led to a bloody aftermath in Iraq

‘We knew at the time that its purpose was precisely to make a case for war, rather than setting out
the available intelligence. I and those involved in its production saw it exactly as that, and that was the
direction we were given.’
And earlier this month an unnamed MI6 officer said Mr Campbell acted like ‘an unguided missile’ in
work on the intelligence dossier.
The spin doctor had ‘a propensity to have rushes of blood to the head and pass various stories and
information to journalists without appropriate prior consultation’.
The inquiry is also understood to focus on the way that Mr Blair privately told Mr Bush more than a
year before the conflict that he would back the war, while claiming in public he had not made up his mind.
Mr Blair denied that a deal to go to war had been ‘signed in blood’ at President Bush’s Texas ranch
in 2002. He said they merely agreed to ‘deal’ with Saddam.
However, a rift between Mr Blair and Mr Straw over whether the UK supported ‘regime change’ will
also feature prominently in Chilcot’s conclusions.
Furthermore, Mr Straw is in the line of fire after saying he only ‘very reluctantly’ endorsed the
war, but ignored warnings from Foreign Office legal advisers that it was illegal.
Sir Michael Wood, former senior legal adviser at the Foreign Office, said he considered resigning
in protest at the war and was sidelined after he objected.
Mr Blair’s ‘sofa government’ style, whereby key decisions on the war were made in his study by a
small circle of confidants – with most Cabinet Ministers and officials excluded – is also expected to be

Former Cabinet Secretaries Lord Wilson and Lord Turnbull, who both served under Mr Blair, told of
their failed pleas to Mr Blair to rely on traditional Cabinet committees.
Lord Turnbull said the Cabinet was not asked to approve the war until the eve of the invasion in
March 2003, by which time they were ‘imprisoned’ and had little choice but to agree – or see Mr Blair ousted.
The failure to anticipate the post-war turmoil that followed Saddam’s defeat is believed to be
another major part of Chilcot’s conclusions.
The inquiry heard how Major-General Tim Cross, a senior British officer, asked Mr Blair to delay
the invasion of Iraq two days before the conflict, partly because planning for afterwards was ‘woefully thin’.
Major-General Cross said: ‘I remember saying, in so many words, I have no doubt at all that we will
win this military campaign. I do not believe that we are ready for post-war Iraq.’
When he arrived in Baghdad after the war, things were worse than he expected. ‘Baghdad was held
together by chicken wire and chewing gum,’ he said.
Last night sources close to Mr Blair said that they were aware of the kind of criticism he was
likely to face.
A spokesman for the Chilcot Inquiry said: ‘We will not provide a running commentary on the
inquiry.’ A source close to the inquiry said reports that Mr Blair would be heavily criticised were
A spokesman for Tony Blair said: ‘This is a deliberate attempt to pre-judge a report that hasn't
even been written yet.
'We're not going comment until it has been published.’
How Chilcot put Blair on the
Iraq War Deal ‘Signed In Blood’
The inquiry pursued a claim that a deal was ‘signed in blood’ by Mr Blair at Mr Bush’s ranch in
Crawford, Texas, in 2002, a year before the war – while Mr Straw denied regime change was considered.
Panel member Sir Roderic Lyne asked Mr Straw: ‘What Mr Blair said about Crawford was very simple –
Saddam either had a change of heart or regime change was on the agenda. He says it is on the agenda, you say it was
off. Weren’t you and the Prime Minister aiming for different objectives?’
Inquiry member Sir Lawrence Freedman challenged the way Cabinet Ministers were kept in the dark in
the build-up to the war.
His colleague Sir Roderic said: ‘Would the board of any company ever be asked to take collective responsibility for
a major strategic decision without a single paper or discussion in a board committee?’
Dodgy Intelligence Dossiers
Sir John Chilcot said Mr Blair’s claim that the secret services had established ‘beyond doubt’ that
Saddam had WMD ‘was not possible to make on the basis of intelligence’.
When Mr Blair insisted: ‘I did believe it, frankly, beyond doubt,’ Sir Lawrence said: ‘Beyond your
doubt, but beyond anybody’s doubt?’ Sir Roderic suggested Mr Blair had ‘misled Parliament’.
Inquiry member Baroness Prashar questioned Mr Blair on ‘obvious failings’ in post-war planning.
There was ‘so much concentration on the (military) campaign planning that attention wasn’t paid to the
She told Mr Straw: ‘The U.S. was dysfunctional . . . yet we continued to assume they would sort it
out. It wasn’t for want of people drawing it to the attention of the Prime Minister. Why did we not pay enough
attention to that?’

That Lodge traces its history to Sumerian and Egypt and the cities of Babylon and Ur. Its methods actively embrace
this life, this world, this physical realm, this body as a means to illumination and awakening. The left-hand path
is not a route of escapism from reality, but a confrontation with the full totality of physical and psychic
existence, encompassing pleasure and joy as well as horror, pain and mortality. You become a deliberate outcast!
Each grade is achieved, never simply conferred. Sometimes it takes many years for advancement - but you can never
really leave the Lodge. There is a point of no return. Indeed, each ritual binds the participants tighter; closer
to one another and the dream and nightmare Mysteries of Our Deities. We co-ordinate the actions of the left-hand
path and its adherents.
The left-hand path in its purist form is always characterized by radical opposition. Its method of initiation is
based on cultivating estrangement and deliberate alienation from divine, natural and human rule. Through an active
and positive sacred glorification of the radical Other (Drugoy), the walker of the left-hand path steps outside
previously secure borders, a self-exiled, self-determined creation of his or her own autonomous will! This
sacralized separation from the established law and custom, particularly sexual convention, is not to be confused
merely with the empty acts of the social rebel - it is instead a God-like disdain for the restrictions that bind
the uninitiated, a taking of supreme responsibility for one's own actions.

According to its Knowledge Lectures,
the Alpha Lodge existed mainly in England until the nineteenth century when its
operational base became the Australian colony of New South
Wales. There some of the
highest echelons of the landed gentry establishment embraced it. Individuals such as Alfred Deakin and later, King
O'Malley caused some problems, but by the time William Morris Hughes was Prime Minister, these obstacles had
largely been overcome by focusing on the
bureaucracy. We work behind the scenes.
Those with limited purpose or self-respect use what little power they are given in predictable ways. One only need
observe what has happened since the Twin Towers in New York were destroyed to see how police, customs officers,
security guards and other petty bureaucrats have created the sort of nameless, faceless and soulless justice that
is foundational for the hierarchical future. By concentrating on the system everybody and everything falls into
place. As was often said by my
mentor, Petor Narsagonan, 'Satan is a wonderful systems man!' This was learned
early by the Alpha Lodge. [Nazarene Remnant

At that time and well into the twentieth century, there was a libertarian strain within the Lodge. As Satan had
left the tyranny of heaven to pursue freedom; freedom was what the lodge supported. However it became increasingly
apparent that the masses did not want liberty. As the Western world - including Australia - moved comfortably to
the implementation of mass incarceration, right-hand path-ers had every reason to celebrate. With surveillance
cameras now in streets, in stores, at public transport stations and above the motorways; with telephone
conversations that may be recorded for 'training' purposes; with the proliferation of government regulations,
directives, policy initiatives; scanning devices and detection machines; proof of identity requirements and
triplicate forms the conformist herd is comfortable!
As the future is worked out Satanists will be gold capstone of the societal pyramid.
[Aussie Prime Minister] Billy Hughes caused a major
problem after his attendance at the Versailles Peace Conference. There was a distinct possibility in the 1920s that
the federated colonies of the Commonwealth of Australia would in fact become a sovereign nation. The
same possibility was open to New
Zealand and Canada. After a lot of effort on the part of Alpha Lodge initiates all over
the globe, only the British colony of South Africa became a sovereign
nation.The income and influence of the left-hand path and its adherents remains intact to this
MEANS OF CONTROL
The right-hand path takes responsibility away from the individual by having a formal dogma, a code of ethics and
behavior and by having the individual participate in an organized grouping. In that way and to varying extents the
identity of the individual is taken away by belief systems which the individual has to accept, and by them
accepting some higher authority, be such authority an individual, a group or an ideology. The Alpha Lodge took over these authorities -
political parties, the military, the public service, financial institutions, the legal profession, churches,
charities and others - by a variety of means and in this way achieved its aims.
The Church of Satan and its child, the Temple of Set are the public faces of the left-hand
path. They remain magnets for those with promise who will be invited to join or who will find more serious and
clandestine branches of a very old tradition. In that regard the Order of Nine Angles in Britain is a
sister 'lodge' to the various Alpha Lodges worldwide and increasingly so in America.
In the pedestrian world the universities of Oxford and
Cambridge in the Britain and the Universityof Texas in America remain the Alpha
Lodge's fertile recruiting grounds. Like all modern universities, these centers of learning prepare their students
for a life of work in some dismal institution, trapping them in the retirement system and creating prisoners of the
State. But unlike modern universities, these three and the University of
Osaka remain at the forefront of Luciferianism. Osaka University in Japan became important in
the mid-1980s owing to its relationship with of all groups, the I.R.A. Not many realize that Irish republicans have
a deep and long association with Osaka University, as that university also now has with the left-hand path in
Northern Ireland has many Satanists
of high caliber. Irish Satanists are particularly into child abductions and sacrifice. Theirs is an
old, dark paganism replete with seasonal celebrations. Akin to the Order of Nine Angles, the Irish
nonetheless retain their own mysteries. Some of their highest people are also members of the Alpha Lodge.
Clonegal Castle and its surrounds
are well know to Irish initiates.
ANTON LAVEY AND NORMAN LINDSAY
Stanton Levey (left) was originally associated with the American branch O.T.O. and it was from
them that he was first taught serious Magick. Carl Kellner, Dr. Gérard Encausse, Theodor Reuss, John Yarker, Major
General K.E. Haushofer and Dietrich Eckart were some heavyweights
in the foundation of what is today known as the Alpha Lodge. Their work was based in Europe but also found fertile
soil in America, particularly owing to the later efforts of Edward Alexander Crowley and his connections with the British intelligence services. It was this
teaching - via Crowley through Marvel Whiteside Parsons - which was the foundation of H.S. Levey's later
Whilst the Church of Satan is officially atheistic, its founder definitely wasn't. Prior to becoming Anton LaVey,
Howard Levey engaged in a number of activities which are yet to see the light of day - if these ever do. For
example, he was at one time an associate of [Zodiac Killer] Dick Gaikowski.
It was around 1964-5, that the Alpha Lodge first made contact with him and a fruitful arrangement it turned out to
be. His endearing achievements remain the Ordo Cave Lupam (just a few short years after the Profumo Affair) and its
influence upon the (originally Australia- based) Black Order (of Typhon). It is a shame that he never met [foremost
Australian artist] Norman Lindsay who contributed
much to the Black Order's success.
Crowley constantly stressed attracting significant and successful people into the occult world and Satanism
certainly did. Prior to the 1960s many Freemasons were recruited
internationally. These well placed, professional connections are still paying dividends today,
particularly in Ireland, but Australia was no different.Aristocrats
(particularly those with strong Norman ancestry), politicians, bureaucrats, media glitterati, social workers and
even Christian clerics now worship at the altars of Satan.
Norman Lindsay (left) was never
homosexual but, that said, he at times enjoyed the favors of very young girls. He engaged in work surrounding the
mysteries of the vagina, particularly the Kaula rites of Tantric Magick. I'm told that there are a number of bodies
which were buried outside (but around) his Faulconbridge property. Nearby there are chambers beneath the ruins of a
now derelict mansion that was burnt out some decades ago. I understand that these subterranean chambers have not
been accessed since the 1930s, when that mansion was sold.
Norman Lindsay discovered that the use of ritual and sex created a separate world where normal morality was
forgotten. Young children initiated through such rites displayed cognitive distortions, often becoming disciples of
their original abusers. Norman maintained that cruelty and violence were natural and that society's denial of these
was simply Christian hypocrisy. Through him the Alpha Lodge in Australia began organized sexual exploitation,
harnessing their rites towards power and the control of the individuals involved.
The child victims were disoriented by the robes, incense, incantations and locations. Who is going to believe a
little child haunted by shame and terror talking about sexual abuse and torture at the same time they mention the
bizarre aspects of ritual? Norman maintained that secrecy and silence were the first and best lines of defense;
followed of course, by the lack of
credibility of the victims themselves. Decades after his death, initiates of the Alpha
Lodge proposed "subconsciously fabricated memories" as the actual cause of some of the distressing stories
which have more recently seen the light of day, but it should be remembered that the earlier insights of
Lindsay were foundational in the acceptance of the 'panic', 'witch hunt' and 'hysteria' claims of today's
If a child speaks of what occurred, they become victims of a dismissive, incredulous society and the sensationalist
media circus which generates itself around the ambiguities of their stories. They are pushed to the margins of
society's conscience and consciousness, then forgotten. It was discovered that a few evocative words was usually
enough to cripple a victim with visceral flashbacks of the shame and agony being relived again and again - for
their memories are a prison without walls.
Lindsay rediscovered that in a threatening ritual situation - with its heightened sense of alertness, with reaction
and responses at fever pitch - if the chance to respond in a constructive way is denied then everyday responses to
danger become dysfunctional. In such individuals fear, anger and sadness can be manipulated to quickly escalate.
Emotionally numbed and fatigued child initiates can develop a separate sense of complete difference to others
together with a belief in the total power of their perpetrators. I'm told that some of the children went on to live
extraordinary lives - both within and outside of the Alpha Lodge - whilst most descended into prostitution for the
Alpha Lodge, followed by early death.
In America today Norman Lindsay is worshiped by initiates as the God He
is. He has become greater than the mortal He knew would die that a God may be born. His feast
is twenty-one days after the Eve of All Hallows. A young (virgin) girl is presented to the Temple, prepared by
female members and initiated by the most advanced male in attendance who wishes to do so. Others may then take
their turn. Her bodily juices are collected and used in later rituals, principally to consecrate or in
Meanwhile in Britain, Bob Boothby and Tom Driberg, apart from being homosexuals, were also active
Satanists. Tom's cover of Anglo-Catholicism kept him out of a lot of bother. Both were involved behind the scenes
in organizing for Harold Wilson and Edward Heath to become Prime Ministers of Britain, as Wilson
was a high initiate of the left-hand path and together with Nat Rothschild, Britain is still influenced by their
seminal work. Heath, on the other hand, was the highest initiated Satanist in Britain to become
Even occultists know little, if anything, about Bob or Ted's visits to the ancient sacrificial Wood in Clapham,
Sussex and their association with certain people in the surrounding areas. The Wood holds some serious secrets
stretching back in time to before Roman Britain and indeed it still does. From what I've been told, one day some of
these hidden horrors will be found, but by then those involved will be long dead.
Just as in
Australia, there are tunnels and caverns beneath Chequers and I'm aware that Heath used these.
Castle also sits atop a vast expanse of underground workings. There are secret tunnels beneath
London that lead into the Earth. If you know where to look, a few of London's subterranean ghost railway stations
and the odd pub cellar are good places to start. Some of these may be natural whilst others have been constructed.
Prior to London becoming a Roman city there were mines in the area, mines that were later discovered and used.
Indeed, it would be true to state that thousands of people could live in the tunnels and caverns beneath the City
as there are abundant water sources. The crowning, in-your-face audacity of the British Establishment was to name the
bunker beneath the Ministry of Defence 'Pindar' - after the Greek poet, of
Both Wilson and Heath used to sacrifice children and the British royal family still does. Ted Heath took a real
delight in it, or so I'm told. Apparently he used to engage in ritual outside of London on a Common associated with
Francis Dashwood. Likewise,
the British royals have public and very private lives. Their obsession with hidden, esoteric traditions stretching
back millennia is nothing short of amazing. Prince William is being groomed for big things. He is a man to
The Dark Lord, Peter Mandelson, (left)
apart from being openly gay, is one of the highest initiates in the United Kingdom. He was trained in the
hebdomadry system of Magick, the same system used by both the Alpha Lodge and the Order of Nine Angles. His close
association with international business figures and the Bildberg group have been of great, indeed inestimable use
to the left-hand path. Following well thought out and well honed traditions, his dream is a prison-grid global
community.He loves to control. And 'Mandy' as he's known to those who know him best, is as sharp and
dangerous as a stiletto.
It is Mandelson who has helped turn Europeans into serfs for Europe's banks. Europe is now reverting to a
neo-feudalism structure with bankers as the overlords of their indentured citizenry. Britain, America and the rest
of the world will go the same way. Kleptocratic politicians are merely vassals. If current debts were
simply wiped off of the books the only tragedy would be the destruction of the 'too big to fail' banks. While
politicians call that a catastrophe it would actually be freedom for millions of disenfranchised debt-serfs.

of James Rusbridger, particularly in the sordid way his
'suicide' was made to look.
Hekate and Diana are both Goddesses of the night and the Alma bridge tunnel sits beneath crossroads. Indeed, when looking at the

represents - apart from a Wand - is the golden semen of the thirteen royal families of Europe. Diana was
largely kept out of the inner workings of the British royal family owing to her inability to toe the line.
After William, she was expendable and rightly so. She'd served her purpose. Her death was merely icing on the
Princess Diana was a sheep among
wolves. She was chosen owing to her Stuart blood. [Her stepfather] Peter Shand Kydd did more in the colonies than raise
sheep. He was initiated into the Alpha Lodge some years before Norman Lindsay died, or so I'm told. I've no idea if
they ever met, but it wouldn't surprise me. Both loved the fairer sex and monogamy was impossible.
His mission was to break up the already troubled marriage of Diana's parents with a view to causing emotional
problems for her. He succeeded! Poor, beautiful, doe-eyed and stupid Diana never achieved much intellectually and
was therefore perfect for her purpose. Prince William definitely isn't Charles' son. Neither is Prince Harry,
although his conception was out of spite as much as misplaced infatuation. William's father is a citizen of the
world but is based in France. I've never met him, but those who have are impressed and fearful. If Satan has a
vice-regent on Earth it is Him.

11. Why Narcissists Rise To The
By Anna Edwards
11th August 2011
Narcissists rise to the top because people mistake their
confidence and authority for leadership qualities.
They may be charming, confident and climb the job ladder with ease, but when they reach the top,
narcissists are actually not very good at their roles.
Such people are often too self-obsessed to do their jobs properly, according to a study.
Those who love themselves and have vast self-confidence often impress others with their
self-belief, dominance and authority, leading them to climb the career ladder effortlessly.
However, scientists have discovered that while narcissists are convincing leaders, they are so
consumed by their own brilliance that it actually cripples their creativity and often causes them to make bad
They like to squirrel away information from their colleagues and are too focused on themselves to
allow others to shine in the workplace, researchers said.
It also prevents proper interaction with colleagues who often vastly overestimate the ability of
their overconfident bosses.
Scientists at the University of Amsterdam proved their theory by conducting an experiment involving
150 people, split into groups of three.
One of the three was randomly assigned as group leader as part of a task intended to choose a job
Information about the candidate was handed out, some to a single member, some to the entire
The group was told that all three members could contribute advice, but that their leader was
ultimately responsible for any decisions.
The study was designed to see how narcissistic leaders could hold back information about
candidates, a tactic that could result in a less skilled person given the job, thereby damaging the company.
Questionnaires given to 'employees' and 'leaders' revealed that employees hailed narcissistic
leaders as the most effective.
But they were wrong.
Leaders with the largest egos had the most negative effect on their group's overall
They were too self-centred and authoritarian to communicate properly or listen to their
Study author Barbora Nevicka, of at the University of Amsterdam, said: 'As expected, the group
members rated the most narcissistic leaders as most effective.
'In fact, the groups led by the greatest egotists chose the worse candidate for the job. The
narcissistic leaders had a very negative effect on their performance.
'They inhibited the communication because of self-centeredness and authoritarianism.'
She added: 'Narcissism can sometimes be useful in a leader.
'In a crisis, for instance, people feel that a strong, dominant person will take control and do the
right thing,and that may reduce uncertainty and diminish stress.
'However, in the everyday life of an organization, communication, sharing of information,
perspectives, and knowledge is essential to making good decisions.
'In brainstorming groups, project teams, government committees, each person brings something new.
That's the benefit of teams. That's what creates a good outcome.
'Good leaders facilitate communication by asking questions and summarizing the
conversation-something narcissists are too self-involved to do.'
Discussing how narcissists can flourish in politics and even lead governments, Ms Nevicka added:
'Narcissists are very convincing.
'They do tend to be picked as leaders. There's the danger - that people can be so wrong based on
how others project themselves.
'You have to ask: "Are the competencies they project valid, or are they merely in the eyes of the

Beware The Risen People, Part 1
[On the evening before his execution by a British firing squad for his part in the Easter
Rebellion in Dublin in 1916, Padraic Pearse etched a few lines from his own poem, "The Rebel", on the wall of
his cell ...

The World Awakens!
In a time of unprecedented global awakening, the peoples of the nations are rapidly becoming
aware of how they’ve been kept in financial bondage for centuries. The veils of deception and fraud carefully
woven by a malevolent Money Power are being torn apart like spider web in a
gale. The outrageous criminality imposed upon mankind for generations is finally exposed for all to
People are fast discovering how a cunning cabal of banksters conned them into giving up their labour,
their property, and their freedom. They now see how years of their precious energy and toil have been stolen
from them by financial terrorists who have long kept humanity in a wretched state of debt, misery, and
But now the tide of wakefulness is rising fast. A tsunami of anger and indignation is beginning
to roll towards the banksters and their political camp followers. A worldwide revolution against villainy and
corruption grows by the day. The masses are demanding truth and justice, and the cry of their fury is
fearsome and foreboding.

tyrants… hypocrites… liars!
Fearful of the risen people, the criminal syndicates who run the world from behind the facade of
governments and suborned global institutions are terrified of losing their ill-gotten wealth and privileges,
and perhaps their lives.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, a Bilderberger and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, recently
addressed the Council on Foreign Relations in Montreal and warned his fellow elitist villains about this new
“global political awakening”.
Brzezinski said: “For the first time in all of human history mankind is politically awakened –
that’s a total new reality – it has not been so for most of human history.”
Brzezinski bewailed the fact that the whole world had awakened politically and was now
“consciously aware of global inequities, inequalities, lack of respect, exploitation.” He lamented that an
enlightened people would no longer tolerate financial slavery and serfdom nor would they allow the stealthy
move towards a single world currency which would mean complete domination of the world by the international
The People Versus The Banks
More than a century ago Lord Acton said, “The issue which has swept down the centuries and which
will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.”
That fight has now been joined.
In recent years, a growing number of people throughout the world are stumbling upon a massive
deception that the banksters and their vassals have been fiercely trying to keep secret for years. It’s a
secret so incredible that the mind will not accept the truth of it on a first hearing.
…It is the borrower and not the bank who truly funds the loan!
That may seem an incredible hypothesis.
But it’s true. In most loan transactions, banks do not lend out their money; first, they receive
the full amount from the unwitting borrower himself, then they deceitfully loan it back to the borrower as if
it had originally come from their own assets, and they charge punitive rates of interest to
The idea is so preposterous that one’s first inclination is to dismiss it as hokum. But let’s
have a quick look at the origins of modern banking before we explain how the borrower is, in all actuality,
the lender. And at the end of this article we’ll show how you can lawfully get out of debt and have
your loans written off; it involves challenging the banksters from a position of truth, knowledge, and
There has been much dishonesty and trickery in the field of banking since the set-up of the Bank
of England in 1694. Although misleadingly called the “Bank of England” it did not belong to the English
Government or to the English people. It was a private bank that dealt in deceptive practices for private
The Bank of England practised ‘fractional reserve lending’, a counterfeiting process which
permitted the bank to lend out more money than it actually possessed. At the inception of the Bank of
England, the fractional reserve ratio was set at 2 to 1. That meant it could lend out and collect interest on
twice as much money as it really owned.
Fractional reserve ratios soon ran out to 3, 5, and 9 times the amount of bank reserves, and in
some cases to many multiples of these amounts. Although modern capital reserves are generally set at a
minimum of 8% (a lending ratio of 12½ to 1) some banks, such as those in Canada, Australia, and elsewhere
have no requirements at all (see Wikipedia – Reserve requirement).
Fractional reserve lending is a gigantic confidence trick that allows banks across the globe to
create money out of thin air and charge interest on it. Charging interest on money created out of nothing is
a crime known as usury. Incredibly, governments permit it without question and a compliant judiciary
accommodates banking fraud in the courts every day of the week. In bygone days, usurers were put to death;
but today they live in opulence like emperors and consider themselves above the law.
The criminality of modern banking owes its origins to the double-dealing goldsmiths of the
Middle Ages. The goldsmiths owned secure vaults where they would store gold and silver coin and bullion for
their clients for a fee. When a merchant stored gold with the goldsmith he was given a receipt, or chit, for
the amount of his deposit. Soon these chits were traded in the marketplace at face value; they were more
convenient and safer than carrying gold around.
The goldsmith, also a money lender, began to lend out chits instead of his gold. At first, these
chits were fully backed by an equivalent amount of gold in his vault. Then it wasn’t long before he cunningly
progressed to lending out chits backed by his depositors’ gold – without the depositors’ knowledge or
consent. Soon, the devious goldsmith found that he could get away with even more blatant
He noticed that only 10% of his depositors ever turned up to reclaim their gold from his vault.
This observation led the audacious goldsmith to lend out 10 times more chits than he actually possessed in
gold. That meant that nine tenths of his loans were backed by nothing of value, merely conjured up out of
thin air. And if 10% of his depositors ever returned for their gold he would have enough on hand to satisfy
Life was suddenly becoming very rosy for the wily goldsmith. By charging interest on
non-existing gold he extorted a vast fortune from his clients. Just like modern banking
But greed begets greed and it wasn’t long before the avaricious goldsmith began to ponder on a
method to loan out chits backed by no gold at all. If he could pull this off he would surely become
master of the world. Regrettably, events show that he has indeed pulled it off, and he is indeed master of
It might have begun this way…
The goldsmith purchased some bread and savouries in his local bakery and the bill came to five
shillings. He didn’t have cash on him but the baker, knowing he was good for the money, agreed to accept his
IOU for 5s. When the miller came to the baker for payment for flour he also agreed to accept the goldsmith’s
five shilling IOU in place of cash. And the miller in turn paid the farmer for his wheat with the IOU, and
the farmer paid his labourer, and the labourer paid the innkeeper for beer, and so on and
The shrewd goldsmith noticed that his IOU never came back to him to be redeemed for five
shillings in coin but was accepted and perpetually transmitted as cash by everyone in the community. What had
cost the goldsmith nothing but a scrap of paper and ink was exchanged for valuable goods and services by all
who accepted it.
In fact, the goldsmith had effectively stolen the labour and the goods of the baker, the miller,
the farmer, and the others. He had contributed nothing to the production of wealth in the community but had
undeservedly shared in its benefits. In the animal kingdom, such a freeloader would be known as a parasite or
bloodsucker. In human terms he would be called a thief.
The goldsmith became excited about his experiment with his IOU. If only he could compel the
government to make his IOUs legal tender and force the people to trade exclusively with them he would be
wealthy beyond comprehension.
As time went by, the mega-rich goldsmith became even richer and his decadent offspring
eventually evolved into the international banksters we know and detest today. Through their immense wealth
this criminal banking cabal has come to wield unwarranted control over heavily indebted governments,
businesses, and individuals throughout the world.

Source: CIA factbook - National Debt
Notes: Japan's Public sector debt is very
high. However, Japan has a high savings rate which makes it easier for the government to finance the debt. 90% of
Japanese debt is owned by Japanese individuals. US has a low savings ratio and 25% of US debt is owned by
foreigners. Nevertheless the National Debt of Japan is a real burden for the economy.
An important factor is not just cumulative national debt, but, the annual budget deficit. This
annual deficit determines the rate of deterioration in the public sector debt.
In the above list, the United States debt is given at just below 60% of national debt. But, a more
commonly used statistics is gross government debt which stands at close to 97% of GDP.
A different statistics is external debt, this the amount of debt a country owes to other countries.
It includes both the private and public sector debt. See: list of external debt by country
14. New NASA Data Blows Gaping Hole In Global
By James Taylor
July 27, 2011
NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show
the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new
study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far
less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior
studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon
dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.
Study co-author Dr. Roy
Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for
the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA's Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from
NASA's Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.
"The satellite observations suggest there is much more
energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show," Spencer said in a July 26 University
of Alabama press release. "There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is
especially big over the oceans."
In addition to finding that far less heat is being trapped
than alarmist computer models have predicted, the NASA satellite data show the atmosphere begins shedding heat into
space long before United Nations computer models predicted.
The new findings are extremely important and should
dramatically alter the global warming debate.
Scientists on all sides of the global warming debate are in
general agreement about how much heat is being directly trapped by human emissions of carbon dioxide (the answer is
"not much"). However, the single most important issue in the global warming debate is whether carbon dioxide
emissions will indirectly trap far more heat by causing large increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds.
Alarmist computer models assume human carbon dioxide emissions indirectly cause substantial increases in
atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds (each of which are very effective at trapping heat), but real-world data
have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the
alarmist computer models have predicted.
The new NASA Terra satellite data are consistent with
long-term NOAA and NASA data indicating atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds are not increasing in the manner
predicted by alarmist computer models. The Terra satellite data also support data collected by NASA's ERBS
satellite showing far more longwave radiation (and thus, heat) escaped into space between 1985 and 1999 than
alarmist computer models had predicted. Together, the NASA ERBS and Terra satellite data show that for 25 years and
counting, carbon dioxide emissions have directly and indirectly trapped far less heat than alarmist computer
models have predicted.
In short, the central premise of alarmist global warming
theory is that carbon dioxide emissions should be directly and indirectly trapping a certain amount of heat in the
earth's atmosphere and preventing it from escaping into space. Real-world measurements, however, show far less heat
is being trapped in the earth's atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping
into space than the alarmist computer models predict.
When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a
peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a "huge discrepancy" between alarmist climate models and real-world facts,
climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so
will tell us a great deal abouthow honest
the purveyors of global warming alarmism truly are.

15. Lies, Damn Lies And 'Safe' Nuclear Power
By Stephen Lendman
1 July, 2011
In any form, nuclear power is inherently unsafe. For decades, nuclear expert Helen Caldicott warned it must be
"As a physician, I contend that nuclear technology threatens life on our planet with extinction. If present trends
continue, the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink will soon be contaminated with enough
radioactive pollutants to pose a potential health hazard far greater than any plague humanity has ever
Anti-nuclear activist/expert Professor Karl Grossman agrees, calling "Atomic Energy: Unsafe in the Real World" in
his June 29 article, saying:
"Nuclear power requires perfection and no acts of God" to avoid accidents that may become catastrophes. Humans and
technology aren't perfect. Natural and other type disasters happen. "(W)e can't eliminate them. But we can - and
must eliminate atomic energy" or it will eliminate us.
On March 18, Bloomberg said Japan's Fukushima disaster "follows decades of falsified safety reports, fatal
accidents and underestimated earthquake risks in Japan's atomic power industry."
The same is true in America and elsewhere - governments, regulators, and power companies suppressing vital truths,
instead of shutting down inherently unsafe plants, making all of them ticking bombs.
Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island exploded. Others as bad or worse are assured, irradiating vast parts of
the earth disastrously. On June 22, kinetictruth.com headlined, "US heading toward nuclear disaster," saying:
"After a yearlong investigation, AP concluded that many of the nation's facilities are still (operating) because
the safety standards that they are held to have been repeatedly weakened as regulations (for the world's most
hazardous industry became) more and more lax."
After reviewing tens of thousands of government and industry studies and documents since the 1970s, it concluded
that the industry-run Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) falsified arguments, saying "safety margins could be
eased without peril." As a result, not only are Americans endangered, so is one-fifth of the nation's electricity
Many problems AP found could trigger a nuclear disaster, including broken seals and nozzles, rusted pipes, aging
facilities past their useful life, and numerous examples of shoddy maintenance and management laxity. Nonetheless,
NRC officials rubber stamp license extensions, including 66 facilities over 25 years old re-licensed for another
two decades, instead of responsibly shutting them down.
Vermont Yankee is perhaps the most notorious. Licensed to begin operating in 1972, Vermont's Senate voted 26 - 4
against re-licensing in February 2010, citing radioactive tritium leaks, falsified management statements, a 2007
cooling tower collapse, among other problems, proving the facility is a disaster waiting to happen.
Nonetheless, on March 21, 2011, the NRC extended its life for another 20 years until 2032. Moreover, Entergy,
Vermont Yankee's owner and America's second largest nuclear generator after Exelon, sued to revoke a state law,
giving it legislative authority to suspend operations when its current license expires next March.
The plant, in fact, has the same GE Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactor design as Fukushima's Units 1 and 2. According to
Citizens's Action Network's Bob Stannard:
"It's unimaginable to think that the NRC would declare this plant safe when (it) houses 640 tons of spent fuel in
an unprotected fuel pool with no containment vessel. In Japan, the plant that's in the worst shape has only 80
If Vermont Yankee blows, perhaps all Vermont and New England go with it, and given its deplorable state, it may if
it's 20 year extension isn't stopped.
In Missouri, record floods threaten two nuclear plants - the Cooper Nuclear Station and Fort Calhoun Station, yet
little about either is reported, especially on television where most people get news. In early June moreover, the
FAA issued an indefinite "no-fly hazards" restriction over the facilities to conceal the worst of what's
Both plants issued low level "unusual event" alerts that may rise to catastrophic ones. On June 30, the Omaha
World-Herald reported that both plants store spent fuel rods in open casks. As a result, if Missouri River flood
levels rise enough, they'll "overflow them and carry contaminated water downstream."
Both plants "use outdoor, above-ground entombment (called dry cask storage) for its oldest fuel," kept in welded
shut steel canisters placed "inside concrete bunkers that rely on outside air flowing" to dissipate residual heat.
Allegedly, bunkers and canisters can withstand flooding. They may soon get a chance to prove it.
On June 15, Rense.com contributor Tom Burnett headlined, "Ft. Calhoun Spent Fuel In Ground Pools, Flooded Already?"
"Ft. Calhoun is the designated spent fuel storage facility for the entire state of Nebraska....and maybe for more
than one state." It's stored in ground-level pools underwater but open on top. "When the Missouri River pours in
there, it's going to make Fukushima look like an x-ray. But that's not all. There are a LOT of nuclear plants on
both the Missouri and Mississippi and they can all go to hell fast" if flood waters or other natural disasters
Ft. Calhoun's spent and recently removed fuel are stored "OUTSIDE the reactor waiting to wash away or explode -
which will destroy about 15,000 square miles of what used to be the corn belt," besides the potential human
In fact, "Calhoun may already be spewing radiation into the flooding Missouri." However, an information blackout
keeps the public uninformed, including about an NRC report effectively saying it's unprepared "to protect the
intake structure and auxiliary building against external flooding."
Nonetheless, Omaha Public Power District CEO Gary Gates told AP:
"There is no possibility of a meltdown. The floodwaters are outside of Ft. Calhoun, not inside," AP adding:
"Fort Calhoun is the subject of more public concern because the floodwaters have surrounded that plant and forced
workers to use raised catwalks to access the facility." Cooper Nuclear Station "is more elevated, so the
floodwaters aren't as close to the facility." But the facility is by no means out of danger.
NRC chairman Gregory Jaczko also claims flooding endangers neither plant, words he may later eat if levels keep
rising. In fact, Public Citizen's Tyson Slocum believes conditions are dangerous, saying:
"We're inches away from (Calhoun) nuclear plant being flooded. It's already an island. And we still have a very
real possibility of flood levels rising....There's always the possibility of the situation escalating, especially
when we don't control all the variables. That's what happened in Japan."
"There's no question that there's significant concern about the threat that rising flood waters pose to flooding
certain operations of the plant that could disable certain critical safety features, including cooling
Cooper may also be endangered, he added, saying:
"We wouldn't be having this conversation if this were a wind farm or if this were a solar power installation.
Nuclear power inherently poses enormous risks to our communities. We really have to start questioning whether (it)
should be a viable part of our 21st century energy mix."
Any sane person would call that a no-brainer.
In addition, conditions appear worse, not better, after a protective Calhoun facility water-filled berm collapsed
on June 26 after being struck by some heavy equipment. As a result, "(m)ore than 2 feet (60 cm) of water rushed in
around containment buildings and electrical transformers," according to Reuters.
Most disturbing is that very likely the worst of what's happening is suppressed. Moreover, it's standard practice
for all major industries to protect their bottom line priorities, aided by complicit regulators, government
officials, and media bosses, dismissive of public safety concerns.
As a result, the official IAEA Chernobyl death count was 4,000 when, in fact, a New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS)
study concluded numbers approaching one million and counting. Moreover, little information explained how BP
destroyed America's Gulf and gravely harmed the health and livelihoods of millions of area residents.
In early June, the Nuclear Energy Institute, a US industry lobbying group, claimed:
"No health effects are expected among the Japanese people as a result of the events at Fukushima." In fact, weeks
after the March 11 disaster, two distinguished nuclear experts, Christopher Busby and Marion Fulk, publicly said
northern Japan (one-third of the country) is uninhabitable and should be evacuated. By now perhaps most or all
Japan is affected, as well as many other parts of the world, including American air, water, soil and food
contaminated by hazardous radiation levels.
America's Southwest On the Edge
In late June, the Las Conchas fire began in New Mexico's Sante Fe National Forest, 12 miles southwest of the Los
Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). It's America's largest nuclear weapons research center, storing huge amounts of
nuclear waste, including a reported 30,000 55-gallon drums of plutonium, the most toxic substance known.
According to the Los Alamos Study Group (LASG), a LANL site called "Area G" houses a nuclear dump, 19 miles from
Sante Fe Plaza. "It's Growing. And It's Ours Forever:"
-- larger than the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, NM;
-- permanent waste is kept "in shallow unlined pits and shafts covered with dirt;"
-- enough's there to "fill 1.4 million 55 gallon drums - plus (another 60,000 drums) of temporarily-stored
-- weapons testing and production adds another 54,000 drums annually;
-- "two other mesas (will also be used) for dump sites;"
-- regulatory oversight is entirely absent; and
-- most waste "is entirely unnecessary."
In fact, weapons development, testing and production way exceeds Cold War levels, even after America's 2010
Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia. It was an agreement more in name than substance, given
Washington's determination to pursue nuclear superiority by replacing old weapons with new, improved, more
As a result, LASG said LANL weapons design and testing continue. "Production of plutonium bomb cores has begun. A
second plutonium plant is planned. Many more tons of plutonium are needed for the bomb factories. Huge new
facilities for weapons testing and or novel kinds of nuclear processing - which will produce even more waste - are
Everything is dangerous and secret. LASG worries most about:
-- increasing US Southwest drought, creating conditions for raging fires; and
-- natural or engineered "unexpected events," causing "unthinkable" nuclear catastrophes, including one affecting
LANL, surrounding areas, and potentially much of America's Southwest because bad enough nuclear accidents are
Whether current Los Alamos fires qualify isn't known. On June 28, AP said midday flames were "as close as 50 feet
from the grounds." LANL safety assurances aren't reliable, nor is information about potential widespread
contamination if containment doesn't work.
In Los Alamos, Senator Tom Udall (D. NM) said, "We are throwing absolutely everything at this that we've got." As a
precautionary measure, the city's entire 11,000 population was evacuated.
According to Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety executive director Joni Arends:
"The concern is that (drums of plutonium) will get so hot that they'll burst. That would put this toxic material
into the plume. It's a concern for everybody."
She also worries that fire may affect LANL nuclear-contaminated soil. With a staff of about 15,000, the facility is
huge, including 2,000 buildings, covering over 36 square miles on nearly four dozen sites.
It's been around since WW II as part of the Manhattan Project. Thereafter, it evolved into a major scientific and
nuclear research facility, developing, testing and producing state-of-the art weapons, as well as multidisciplinary
work in various fields, including national security, space, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and
About one-third of its technical staff are physicists, one-fourth engineers, one-sixth chemists and materials
scientists, and the others involved in mathematics, computational science, biology, geoscience, and other
disciplines. Along with Alameda County, CA's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, it's one of two Department of
Energy facilities designing nuclear weapons and related activities.
Because of fire, lab facilities were shut for days. Moreover, 30 or more of its structures were destroyed, yet LANL
claims its buildings were constructed to meet strict nuclear safety standards. In Japan, Tokyo Electric (TEPCO),
regulators and government officials gave similar nuclear safety assurances, even after disaster struck, and still
suppress vital information millions of Japanese citizens need to know. America's NRC does it notoriously.
Why expect LANL to operate otherwise, especially given its sensitive work and large amounts of stored nuclear
waste, including plutonium, perhaps vulnerable to ignite and spread over a wide area disastrously, despite
officials calling the exposure risk small. Maybe they're right, maybe not but won't say. On June 30, Los Alamos
County Fire Chief Douglas Tucker said the fire could double or triple in size before it's checked, adding:
"We have fire all around the lab. It's a road away."
On June 29, the Sante Fe Reporter said nearly 93,000 acres were consumed. Its feature story headlined, "Flash
Point: The West is burning. Is global 'weirding' to blame? saying:
Another 60,748 acres are ablaze, threatening LANL. It's not one big fire. Since last July, nearly 1,000 ignited
around the state, most in the past few months because of tinderbox dry conditions. They're also across the West
from Texas to California, as well as north to Colorado and Utah. In nearly a year, over 711,000 New Mexico aces
In a separate report, writer Chip Ward said Arizona and Texas are burning besides New Mexico and other states.
However, residents close to Los Alamos live in fear, worried that smoke plumes might contain deadly radiation,
especially plutonium if it ignites. Unless prevented, "the West is ours to lose," and perhaps a whole lot more.

16. The CIA In Australia:
America'S Foreign Watergate
"The CIA's aim in Australia was to get rid of a government they did not like and
that was not co-operative… it's a Chile, but in a much more sophisticated and subtle form."
(VICTOR MARCHETTI, ex-CIA officer, 1980)
"There is profoundly increasing evidence that foreign espionage and intelligence
activities are being practised in Australia on a wide scale… I believe the evidence is so grave and so
alarming in its implications that it demands the fullest explanation. The deception over the CIA and the
activities of foreign installations on our soil… are an onslaught on Australia's sovereignty."
(GOUGH WHITLAM to the Australian Parliament, 1977)
On December 2nd 1972, Australia's first Labor Government for twenty-three years was elected. The
new Prime Minister, Edward Gough Whitlam, quickly set about a series of historic legislations: wages,
pensions and unemployment benefits were increased; equal pay for women was introduced; a free national health
service was established; spending on education was doubled; university and college fees were abolished; and
legal aid became a universal right.
The Federal Government assumed responsibility for Aboriginal health, education and welfare, and
the first land rights legislation for Aborigines was drafted. Cultural initiatives for women, Aborigines and
immigrants were set up. Imperial honours such as knighthoods and MBEs were scrapped. The "Commonwealth
Government" was renamed the Australian Government and an Australian anthem replaced "God Save the Queen."
Conscription was ended. Australian troops were withdrawn from the Vietnam War and men imprisoned
for draft evasion were released. Australian ministers publicly condemned the American conduct of the Vietnam
War. The U.S. bombing of Hanoi during Christmas 1972 was denounced as the work of "maniacs" and "mass
murderers". Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Jim Cairns, called for public rallies to condemn the bombing and for
boycotts on American goods. In response, Australian dockers refused to unload American ships. Whitlam himself
warned the Nixon administration that he might draw Indonesia and Japan into protests against the
The Australian Government also pressed for support for the Indian Ocean Zone of Peace, which was
opposed by the US, and spoke up in the United Nations for Palestinian rights. The French were condemned for
testing nuclear weapons in the South Pacific, and refugees fleeing the CIA-backed coup in Chile were welcomed
into Australia (an irony in the light of Washington's retaliation against Whitlam).
"We were told that the Australians might as well be
regarded as North Vietnamese collaborators."
(FRANK SNEPP, CIA officer stationed in Saigon at
the time of the Agency's covert activities against
the Whitlam government.)
The CIA's alarm over the Australian Government rose to a fury when, in the early hours of March
16th 1973, the Attorney General, Lionel Murphy, led a raid on the Melbourne offices of the Australian
Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). Murphy and Whitlam were concerned about ASIO's involvement with
local fascist Croatian groups that had carried out terrorist acts in Australia and against Yugoslav diplomats
Set up under the auspices of the UKUSA Treaty in 1949, ASIO had distinguished itself by not
uncovering a single spy or traitor (this is still the case), yet it had become almost as powerful in
Australia as the CIA itself. ASIO had a secret pact of loyalty to the CIA and helped to set up and maintain
secret police organisations that kept files on all Australian Labor Party members, prominent politicians,
government officials, union leaders, members of the Council of Civil Liberties and anyone considered the
slightest left-of centre. Even prayer meetings for peace were watched and recorded.
According to a top-secret report to a Royal Commission into Australia's secret services led by
Mr Justice Hope, for decades members of ASIO handed over to the CIA slanderous information against Australian
politicians and senior officials who they regarded unfavourably. This material ranged from accusations of
subversive tendencies to concern about their personal lives, and allowed the CIA to work against these people
in ways that ranged from blackmail to efforts to block their careers.
ASIO is run as an internal organisation in Australia. The Australian Secret Intelligence
Service, ASIS, operates abroad and is less well known. Code-named MO9, its existence was only acknowledged after
the Labor Government came to power in 1972. ASIS played an important role in the CIA's covert activities
against foreign governments in Southeast Asia. For example, after Cambodia's Prince Sihanouk broke off
diplomatic relations with the United States in 1965, the CIA used ASIS to secretly carry out its work in the
country for the next four years, despite official Australian policy being one of strict neutrality. After
Sihanouk was overthrown in a CIA-inspired coup, American forces invaded Cambodia and the US carpet-bombing of
the country - a bombing so intense that during one six-month period in 1973, American B52s dropped the
equivalent (in tons of bombs) of five Hiroshimas on the civilian population - served as a catalyst for the
rise to power of Pol Pot and the genocidal Khmer Rouge).

describing the organisation's activities.
Whitlam also discovered that ASIS agents were working for the CIA in Chile, de-stabilising the
government of Salvador Allende, who was supported by the Australian Labor Government. Whitlam promptly
ordered the ASIS officers home. However, some remained in Chile under Australian Embassy cover and without
Whitlam's knowledge; Allende was subsequently murdered during the CIA-orchestrated military coup led by the
dictator General Augusto Pinochet.
The CIA's concern over the activities of the Whitlam government was due to the fact that
Australia played a pivotal role in the United States' desire for covert influence over Indo-China. Some of
the most strategically important and top-secret American bases outside the United States are located in
Australia. These include the U.S. Naval Communication Station, North West Cape, on the northern coast of
Western Australia, which transmits battle orders for the nuclear missile-carrying Polaris submarines. The
most secretive Australian intelligence organisation is the Melbourne-based Defence Signals Directorate (DSD)
which is modelled on the American National Security Agency, NSA. The DSD spies for the U.S. in the Indian
Ocean, the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. There is also the Joint Intelligence Organisation (JIO),
established in 1970 under the supervision of the CIA's analyst division, and the Office of National
Assessments (ONA), whose job is to co-ordinate and analyse Australia's extensive spying networks in the
Most important of all is Pine Gap, near Alice Springs, officially described as an American-
Australian "Joint Defence Space Research Facility", but in actuality it is an entirely American spy-satellite
base, run by the CIA and the NSA. Pine Gap can pick up communications from almost anywhere in the world; its
primary function is the collection of data from CIA sources and transmitters, and the preparation for nuclear
warfare. So secretive were Pine Gap and the other major U.S. base at Nurrungar in South Australia that no
details of their plans were revealed to successive Australian Prime Ministers and their cabinets.
Leaked Australian Defence Department documents disclosed that in 1972, high-frequency
transmitters at North West Cape had helped the United States to mine Haiphong and other North Vietnamese
harbours; and that satellites controlled from Pine Gap and Nurrungar were being used to pinpoint targets for
the American bombing of Cambodia. These actions were taken entirely without the consent or knowledge of the
William Corson, a former senior U.S. intelligence officer, also revealed that the CIA ran
between ten and fifteen "black airfields" at their secret Australian bases during the Vietnam War, flying
"hot" CIA agents from Vietnam for debriefing. In 1975, as the North Vietnamese captured control of South
Vietnam, massive supplies of drugs that had been stashed by the CIA in Vietnam were flown into the secret
U.S. airfields in Australia. The drugs were redistributed to "regional drug banks", thus providing a "reserve
currency" for the Agency's global criminal activities.
The top-secret American base at Nurrungar, South
In October 1973, during the Middle East War, President Nixon put U.S. forces on nuclear "Level
Three" alert, through the base at North West Cape. Australia had become involved, without the knowledge of
its government, in a war on the other side of the world. When Whitlam found out about this, he was furious
and told Parliament that although the Australian government would honour agreements with America covering
existing spy stations, "there will not be extensions or proliferations."
Whitlam's words were to have serious consequences for the fate of his government. A new American
Ambassador was appointed to Australia - Marshall Green, widely known as "the coup-master". Green was a senior
U.S. policy planner for Southeast Asia and had the distinction of being involved in several countries where
the CIA had masterminded coups, such as Indonesia and Chile.
Green visited the office of Clyde Cameron, a senior minister in the Whitlam government, and made
the threat that if the Labor Government honoured one of its key election pledges to reclaim national
ownership of oil refineries and other industries which had been mostly sold to American transnational
interests, "we would move in." In early 1974, Green addressed the Australian Institute of Directors with a
speech that amounted almost to an incitement to rise against the Australian Government. Green went on to say
that Australian business leaders "could expect help from the United States, which would be similar to the
help given to South America." (The CIA-sponsored coup in Chile had happened only a few months earlier).
The CIA set about a programme of discrediting Jim Cairns, leader of the anti-Vietnam War
movement. ASIO timed the leak of a defamatory "Cairns file" to the Bulletin magazine to coincide with Cairns'
election to Deputy Prime Minister in 1974. This file claimed that Cairns "echoed Communist views... and his
activities could lead to the fascist cult of the personality... and to the destruction of the democratic
system of government." A few weeks later, ASIO leaked a second file to journalist Peter Samuels, a regular
publisher of CIA propaganda. Under the headline The Pathway to Terrorism, Samuels wrote that ASIO's prime
concern about Cairns was the "terrorist" potential of his part in the anti-war movement.
By the end of 1974, inflation and the money supply were rising at an alarming rate due to the
dramatic rise in the cost of oil. Despite this, the Whitlam Government was determined to honour its election
promise to hand control of U.S. multinational subsidiaries to the Australian people. In order to achieve
this, Whitlam sent two of his ministers to scour the Middle East for a loan of $A4 billion.
In November 1974 Rex Connor, the Minister for Minerals and Energy, met with Tirath Khemlani, a
Pakistani "commodities merchant" who was working for the London brokers Dalamal & Sons. Unknown to
Connor, Khemlani was a con-man who had been sent to sabotage the Australian Government by a Hong Kong arms
firm closely associated with Commerce International, a Brussels-based armaments company with widespread links
to the CIA. (Commerce International was set up as a front for Task Force 157, the highly secretive CIA "dirty
In March 1975 Jim Cairns was introduced to Melbourne businessman George Harris, who told Cairns
that a $A4 billion loan was available from Commerce International with a once-only brokerage fee of 2.5%.
Cairns considered the offer a fairy tale and rejected the deal. Harris then contacted Phillip Lynch, Deputy
Leader of the opposition Liberal Party. When Lynch raised the question of the brokerage fee in Parliament,
Cairns denied that any such agreement existed. Within days, a letter with Cairns' signature was published on
the front pages of the national newspapers and Cairns was forced to resign for "misleading Parliament."
Cairns steadfastly maintained that he never agreed to or put his name to such an outrageous and incriminating
letter. A top-secret CIA briefing document for the U.S. President dated July 3rd 1975 later revealed that
Cairns had been sacked "even though the evidence had been fabricated."
The CIA was involved in further activities designed to undermine the Whitlam Government. In July
1975 the Australian media reported that the Mercantile Bank and Trust Company, based in the Bahamas, had
issued a letter seeking $4,267,365,000 "for and on behalf of the Government of Australia." The bank did not
claim to be acting with the approval of the Australian Government and cabinet ministers had never heard of
it. But the implication was enough to fill the newspapers with another "scandal". Much later, an ASIO officer
was to publicly state: "some of the documents which helped discredit the Labor Government in its last year in
office were forgeries planted by the CIA."
Mercantile Bank and Trust was set up and owned by the CIA's Colonel Paul Helliwell, who built up
a network of banks, including the infamous Castle Bank, which collapsed after U.S. tax investigators found it
was laundering drugs money for the CIA and the Mafia (see the Wake Up article Dealing in Death: The CIA and
the Drugs Trade). As the loans affair reached its climax in the spring of 1975, a welter of supposedly
incriminating documents forged by the CIA were given widespread coverage in the Australian media. Tirath
Khemlani himself arrived in Australia with two bags bulging with more "incriminating" documents. Bodyguards
provided by the opposition parties accompanied Khemlani and the CIA paid his expenses. Khemlani made
outrageous claims in the media that Labor ministers had received commissions and "kickbacks" from the loans,
that documents proving corruption were soon to be made public, and so on.
In fact not one of these "documents" proved a thing; not one penny was paid by anyone to the
government, nor did any minister profit from the affair. In 1981 a CIA contract employee, Joseph Flynn,
revealed that he had forged some of the loans affair documents and had bugged a hotel room where Gough
Whitlam was staying. He had been paid by Michael Hand, co-founder of the CIA's Nugan Hand Bank.
Former Nugan Hand principal Karl Schuller provided evidence to Australian Corporate Affairs
investigating officers that the CIA transferred a "slush fund" of $A2,400,000 to the main opposition parties
in March 1973, four months after Whitlam's election. An investigation by a special New South Wales police
task force concluded that "many links were found between individuals connected with Nugan Hand and
individuals connected in very significant ways with U.S. intelligence organisations, specifically the Central
Intelligence Agency and the Office of Naval Intelligence [Task Force 157]... at times those links have the
appearance of the direct involvement of the U.S. intelligence community itself." The Commission called for
criminal charges for "drug, conspiracy, perjury and passport offences." (A year after Frank Nugan's death,
the Deputy Director of the CIA, Admiral Bobby Inman, expressed deep concern that the investigations into
Nugan Hand Bank would lead to disclosure of a range of CIA dirty tricks calculated to undermine the Whitlam
It was revealed in the press that the CIA had offered the Australian opposition Liberal Party
(the Liberals were actually conservative) "unlimited funds" in their unsuccessful attempt to defeat the Labor
party in the May 1974 parliamentary elections. Former CIA officer Victor Marchetti confirmed that the CIA had
funded both of the major opposition parties and that the Liberals had been receiving CIA funds since the late
According to the former Deputy Director of Intelligence for the CIA, Dr Ray Cline, the CIA
passed information to opposition politicians not only to discredit the Whitlam Government but also to put
pressure on Australian civil servants who in turn would pressure the Governor-General, Sir John
When the Pine Gap Treaty, which would determine the future of the CIA's most valuable overseas
base, was due for renewal on December 9th 1975, Whitlam's comments that he might not renew the treaty raised
major alarms in the Agency. CIA Director William Colby later wrote that the "threat" posed by the Whitlam
Government was one of the three "world crises" of his career, comparable with the Middle East war two years
previously, when the United States considered using nuclear weapons.
The CIA Station Chief in London, Dr John Proctor, contacted MI6 and asked for British help with
"the Whitlam problem." William Colby directly approached his opposite number, head of MI6, Sir Maurice
Oldfield, to emphasise to British intelligence that Australia was "traditionally Britain's domain" and that
if Pine Gap was closed down, "the Alliance would be blinded strategically." The CIA also sought assistance
from MI6 and MI5 liaison officers based in Washington.
British intelligence has long had a vested interest in Australian politics. MI6 operates its own
base at Kowandi, south of Darwin, where its highly secret activities are concealed from the Australian
government and people. They include widespread interception of communications and covert operations in Asia.
The Australian Secret Intelligence Service, ASIS, also operates from this base and is highly integrated with
At the same time as U.S. intelligence was targeting the Australian Labor Government, Peter
Wright (of Spycatcher infamy) and his colleagues in British intelligence were busy destabilising the British
Labour Government of Harold Wilson. Wright conspired with his close friend, James Jesus Angleton, the extreme
right-wing head of CIA counter-intelligence, to "target" the three Western leaders they regarded as
"Communist agents": Harold Wilson, Willy Brandt in Germany and Gough Whitlam.
After discovering that the British and American intelligence services based in Australia were
secretly involved in Indonesia's invasion of East Timor, Whitlam ordered the dismissal of the heads of ASIO
and ASIS in the autumn of 1975, and then began to make moves against the CIA. Then, at the beginning of
November, it was revealed in the press that a former CIA officer, Richard Stallings, had been channelling
funds to J. Douglas Anthony, leader of the opposition National Country Party, and was a close friend and
former tenant of Anthony's Canberra home. Whitlam accused the opposition of being "subsidised by the CIA."
In Parliament, Doug Anthony admitted that Stallings was a friend but challenged Whitlam to
provide evidence that Stallings worked for the CIA. (Stallings' name was not on the official list of
"declared" CIA officers working in Australia, but on a "confidential" list held by the Permanent Head of the
Australian Defence Department, Sir Arthur Tange). Whitlam prepared a reply, which he intended to give when
Parliament resumed the following week, on Tuesday November 11th.
The CIA was frantic. The Australian Prime Minister was about to blow the cover of the agent who
had set up Pine Gap and to reveal that the supposedly "joint" facility was a CIA charade. Furthermore, the
future of the base itself was to be subject to parliamentary debate. The day before his speech was due,
Whitlam was informed of a telex from the ASIO station in Washington, which stated that the Prime Minister of
Australia was a security risk in his own country. The message had been virtually dictated by Theodore
Shackley, head of the CIA's East Asia Division (and whose plethora of illegal covert activities have been
outlined in other articles on this site).
On Sunday November 9th, the Australian Governor-General, Sir John Kerr, was briefed on the
"security crisis", while the head of the Defence Department declared publicly: "This is the greatest risk to
the nation's security there has ever been." The CIA was certain that Whitlam would announce the cancellation
of the Pine Gap agreement on December 9th, and set into motion a plan to install in power a political party
to "protect the sanctity of U.S. bases."
Six weeks earlier, during a visit to Indonesia, opposition politician Andrew Peacock had briefed
government officials there on the current state of the Australian political crisis. He described in detail a
sequence of events that were about to take Australia by surprise. A record of his briefing was later read
into Australian Hansard:
"Whitlam will not agree to hold an election.... The Governor-General would be forced to ask
Malcolm Fraser to form a Cabinet. But this Cabinet would not be able to get a mandate to govern, because
Parliament is controlled by the Labor Party.... Fraser is appointed PM, a minute later he asks the
Governor-General to dissolve Parliament, following which a general election is to be held."
And that was exactly what happened. On November 11th, the day Whitlam was to inform Parliament
fully about the CIA and American bases in Australia, he was summoned by Kerr from Parliament House. Without
warning, Kerr dismissed Whitlam as Prime Minister, dissolved both houses of Parliament and appointed Malcolm
Fraser, leader of the Liberal Party, to head an interim government until new elections could be held in
December. An unelected official (whose position was traditionally only that of a figurehead representative of
the Queen of England) had, in one arbitrary and unconstitutional act, overthrown a legitimate and
democratically elected government.
Back in the House of Representatives, Whitlam called for a vote of confidence in himself and his
government. An overwhelming majority supported Whitlam. Indeed, six motions proposed that day, including a
motion of no-confidence in Malcolm Fraser, were passed by absolute majorities. The Speaker of the House
delivered Parliament's clear message of confidence in the Whitlam government personally to the
Governor-General. Kerr refused to accept it. The no-confidence motion against Fraser legally obliged the
Governor-General to dismiss Fraser, but Kerr chose to ignore this.
Former CIA officers who were among the Agency's "top seven" in 1975, revealed ten years later
that "Whitlam was set up. The action that Kerr took was so extreme that it would take far more than a
constitutional crisis to cause him to do what he did...." A Deputy Director of the CIA said, "Kerr did what
he was told to do."
During the first week of the coup, the Australian army was recalled to barracks and there were
reports that units were issued with live ammunition. There were demonstrations against the sacking of the
Labor Government throughout Australia; the unions began to mobilise and prepare for a general strike.
However, Bob Hawke, the President of the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), summoned the press and
delivered a stirring speech in which he said that "working people must not be provoked... we have to show we
are not going to allow this to snowball." Hawke's intervention was critical: Australia's organised labour was
strangely quiet in response to the affair. In fact Marshall Green later said that he found Bob Hawke so
amenable to the CIA's cause that "Bob gave me his private telephone number and said if anything ever comes up
that desperately needs some action, this is the number to ring."
An election was called for December 13th 1975. During the campaign, three letter bombs were
posted to Kerr, Fraser and the ultra-right-wing Queensland Premier, Johannes Bjelke-Petersen. Most of the
press, led by Rupert Murdoch's papers, concluded that the bombs were sent by left-wing extremists within the
Labor Party. There was not a shred of evidence to support this and no culprits were ever found, but the
charge of "terrorism" was used to great effect against Labor.
Four days before the election, Bjelke-Petersen called a special session of the Queensland
Parliament to hear "dramatic revelations". He claimed to be "in possession of material which made clear that
two Ministers of the Whitlam Government were due to receive staggering sums of money as a consequence of
secret commissions and kickbacks." Bjelke-Petersen then moved quickly to gag any debate and to prevent the
Labor leader from arranging for parliamentary investigation of the "revelations". The undisclosed
"revelations" made large headlines in the press. No material or evidence of any kind was ever produced, but
the publicity achieved its goal. Whitlam lost the election.
The new Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser renewed the Pine Gap treaty for another decade. He also
offered Washington a naval base at Cockburn Sound, even though the Americans had not requested it. In his
first budget, Fraser increased the size of ASIO and gave it more money, proportionately, than any other
government body. Kerr was given an unequalled pay rise of 170% and was promoted to "Knight Grand Cross of the
Order of St. Michael and St. George."
The Governor-General of Australia, Sir John Kerr. Despite denying
that he ever had any connections with the CIA or any other intelligence organisations, Kerr in fact had a
long association with covert intelligence operations, firstly as a member of the top-secret Directorate of
Research and Civil Affairs during the Second World War. He was then seconded to the Office of Strategic
Services, OSS, the fore-runner of the CIA. Although he joined the Australian Labor Party early in his career,
Kerr was always well to the right politically. He was chief legal adviser to the Industrial Groups, a body
which sought to dominate trade unionism and was linked to the Democratic Labor Party (DLP), an extreme
"anti-Communist" organisation whose split from the Labor Party and subsequent spoiler tactics kept Labor in
opposition until the election of Gough Whitlam in 1977. Kerr was an active member of the Australian
Association for Cultural Freedom, which was exposed in Congress in 1967 as being "founded, funded and
generally run by the CIA." In the 1960s Kerr travelled to the United States to arrange funding from the Asia
Foundation; that too, was exposed in Congress as a CIA conduit for money and
The trade union movement of Australia had long been infiltrated by U.S. intelligence. As John
Grenville, assistant secretary of the Victorian Trades Hall, revealed, "it was generally accepted that the
U.S. labour attaché was the station agent for the CIA." Robert Walkinshaw was the labour attaché from 1962 to
1964. During his time in Melbourne, a trade-union publication, Spotlight, was set up, funded and run by the
CIA. Walkinshaw's subsequent CIA posting was Indonesia, during the military coup in which over half a million
alleged Communists were murdered. Walkinshaw was later posted as CIA adviser in Phuoc Tuy, Vietnam, where the
Australian army and Australian CIA advisers were based.
The CIA later admitted giving money to the General Secretary of the powerful Australian Worker's
Union, Tom Dougherty, to "fight Communism in the AWU." Four years later the National Secretary of the
Federation Ironworkers' Association, Laurie Short, began many visits to the United States, which were
sponsored by the CIA. Short returned to Australia "determined to get rid of the Commies and their friends"
from the Labor Party and the unions. He also delivered the clear message that "in America, the trade-union
movement looked to Australian unionists to help counteract the spread of Communism in the Far
The three Americans involved in supporting Bob Hawke's campaign for the Presidency of the
Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) - Emil Lindahl, Gerry O'Keefe and Ed McHale - all worked for the
CIA. Gerry O'Keefe was exposed as a major CIA operator in right-wing Chilean unions that helped to overthrow
the Allende Government. Ed McHale was U.S. labour attaché in the early 1970s and maintained a "close personal
relationship" with Hawke when the ACTU President was one of the most powerful union bosses Australia had ever
known. McHale was internationally known as a senior CIA officer, having long been Assistant Director of Radio
Free Europe, which had been set up, financed and run by the CIA.
In 1977 the American Christopher Boyce disclosed details of CIA activities in Australia,
specifically the manipulation of unions. Boyce was employed by a Californian aerospace company, TRW Systems
Inc., in a cryptographic communications centre which linked CIA headquarters in Virginia with the Agency's
satellite surveillance system in Australia. Boyce revealed that the CIA had infiltrated Australian labour
unions, had manipulated their leadership and suppressed strikes, particularly those involving railroads and
airports. Boyce described one instance when TRW had material and personnel to ship out to the CIA spy base at
Pine Gap. The Agency was concerned that strikes at Australian airports could wreck their schedule. However, a
telex from CIA headquarters said, "CIA will continue to suppress the strikes. Continue shipment on schedule."
In other words, the CIA had infiltrated the hierarchy of Australian trade unions.
Boyce and his associate Andrew Daulton Lee were put on trial in 1977 for selling U.S. secrets to
the Russians. Lee had flown to the Soviet Embassy in Mexico and sold details of the CIA's covert activities
in Australia to the Soviets. Boyce maintained that he had never intended the information to go the Russians,
that Lee had agreed to make it public through one of his father's influential friends, but that he had been
blackmailed by Lee, a heroin addict and pusher.
Evidence emerged during the trial that most of TRW's communications came from Pine Gap and that
although the United States had signed an Executive Agreement with Australia to share information from Pine
Gap, the agreement was not being honoured and "certain information" was regularly concealed from the
Australian government. Boyce described the CIA's campaigns to subvert Australian trade unions "particularly
in the transport industry", and revealed that the Agency was using Pine Gap to eavesdrop on telephone and
telex messages to and from Australia of a political character, and that the CIA had funded the Australian
opposition political parties. Boyce also revealed that the Australian Governor-General, Sir John Kerr, was
referred to by Joe Harrison, the CIA chief at TWR, as "our man Kerr."
Boyce's disclosures caused a sensation in the United States. The prosecuting lawyers made no
attempt to refute his allegations but successfully objected to any further evidence about the CIA's
activities in Australia. The judge complied with a direct CIA request and agreed that Boyce would not mention
the "Australia information" at his trial if, in return, the government did not use it against him - such was
the sensitivity of the matter. Boyce and Lee were both found guilty; Lee was given a life sentence, while
Boyce was sent for "psychiatric observation" - an indication that he might be treated leniently in return for
his silence. However, Boyce made it consistently clear that he was so outraged at the betrayal of an ally -
Australia - that he intended to talk. He was subsequently given forty years in Marion Federal Penitentiary in
Illinois, where he is kept in solitary confinement. Whenever he leaves his cell, he is manacled, handcuffed
and accompanied by two guards. It is said that his only hope of release rests on his continued silence about
what happened in Australia.
The American Christopher Boyce described CIA covert operations in
Australia aimed at bringing down the Labor Government of Gough Whitlam. Boyce was sentenced to 40 years
solitary confinement for his refusal to stay silent on the matter.
Five years after the overthrow of Whitlam, in April 1981, senior executives of nineteen
Australian corporations met at Melbourne's Noah's Hotel for a "forecasting round table" organised by Business
International. Business International is a worldwide American organisation of "consultants" which represents
the top multi-national companies in Australia. In December 1977, the New York Times exposed Business
International's clandestine links with the CIA.
The nineteen had come to hear Business International's Alan Carroll express his concern about
the resurgence of the Labor Party under Bill Hayden, who had held senior posts in the Whitlam Government and
described himself as a republican and a democratic socialist. At that time, Bob Hawke had completed his term
as ACTU President and was a newly elected Labor Party Member of Parliament. Carroll told the meeting that he
knew Hawke "pretty well" and "basically, Hawke will be Labor Party leader by the middle of next year; and
that's my business, and we won't go into that in any great depth. But he will be there. It's all under way.
The game plan is totally under way and I forecast 3 to 5 on a Hawke Government in '83! We had a meeting with
him about one month ago and we're meeting with him every six months from now. It's terribly important." A
top-secret CIA briefing document for the U.S. President described Hawke as "the best qualified" to succeed
Whitlam as Labor leader.
The forecasts of the Agency and Alan Carroll came true in almost every detail. In February 1983,
three weeks before an election was due, Hawke and others on the party's right wing mounted a successful
putsch against Bill Hayden. With the slogan, "Bob Hawke, Bringing Australia Together", the CIA's chosen
candidate became Australian Prime Minister. Hawke went on to cultivate many ties with anti-Communist groups
and developed what U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz described as "a fine relationship" with Presidents
Nixon and Reagan.
Hawke's Government repeatedly refused to release some 1,200 documents on the Nugan Hand Bank,
the front for international crime and illegal CIA operations in Australia. Hawke also refused to find out why
the CIA barred the release, under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, of fourteen intelligence reports on
Commerce International, the CIA-front company that played a central role in the destruction of the Whitlam
Government. In 1989 a committee headed by a former Chief Justice of the High Court recommended rigorous
Government secrecy in order to prevent disclosures about the activities of the CIA, MI5 and MI6 in the
internal affairs of Australia.
The CIA's illicit actions against the Australian Labor Party clearly indicate that the Agency
will not hesitate to move against even supposed allies if it considers that they threaten U.S. interests; the
full range of CIA dirty tricks can be expected to be applied against any Western nation with the same lack of
impunity and regard for the law that the Agency has shown in its wars with its enemies in the
Good mates: U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz and Bob Hawke,
17. The Business Of America Is War
By Stephen Lendman
27 June 2011
Noted trends analyst Gerald Celente said it, and it's true. In fact, America's business is war, more war, multiple
wars, permanent wars, pillaging one nation after another for wealth, power, and dominance, while homeland needs go
America never was and isn't now the "land of the free and home of the brave." In fact, it's become a "Let 'em eat
Whether or not Marie Antoinette actually said it, France's 1789-99 revolution was very real, delivering guillotine
justice, not promised "Liberte, Egalite, and Fraternite," a status now destroying what's left of American freedom,
heading for the trash bin of history if not already there.
Earlier articles discussed Washington's wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and Yemen, as well as
numerous proxy ones in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and at home against Muslims, Latino immigrants, and
Combined, they represent a shocking contempt for rule of law justice, democratic values and humanity, notions now
mere artifacts long ago abandoned to advance America's imperium.
As previous articles explained, out-of-control imperialism is heading America for tyranny and ruin. In her 1951
book, "The Origins of Totalitarianism," Hannah Arendt said it's "never content to rule by
external means, namely, through the state and a machinery of violence; thanks to its peculiar ideology and the role
assigned to it in this apparatus of coercion, totalitarianism has discovered a means of dominating and terrorizing
human beings from within."
She called it dictatorship based
"(1) an elaborate ideology;
(2) a single mass party;
(4) a technologically conditioned monopoly of communication;
(5) a monopoly of weapons; (and)
(6) a centrally controlled economy."
Duplicitously called a democracy, today's America nearly qualifies:
(1) Its ideology is concentrated wealth and power.
(2) It's governed by a two-party duopoly - the money or property party, excluding alternative choices.
(3) It's the world's leading purveyor of state terrorism, waging global wars against nations, groups or
individuals, including targeted assassinations of its own citizens.
(4) Major media managed news gives it dominant (not monopoly) communication control, but efforts to subvert
Internet discourse and debate may undermine its free and open content.
(5) Corporate-run society makes it centrally controlled for bottom line priorities, excluding other choices.
In her book, "Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil," Arendt said crimes of state aren't
committed by fanatics or sociopaths, just "terrifyingly normal" (people)....neither perverted or sadistic....who
accepted the premises of their superiors and their state" to continue current and/or longstanding policies.
In his book, "On the Justice of Roosting Chickens," Ward Churchill agreed, explaining what he called the
"technocrats of empire," functioning as "little Eichmanns," banally serving imperial interests, no matter how
lawless or evil. They could say "no," of course, but go along to get along, including at the highest levels. For
them, it's to share spoils, no matter the harm or human misery globally.
Churchill's many books and writings discussed 500 genocidal years against America's indigenous peoples, as well as
its global imperial apparatus. Touching the right nerves persuasively, the University of Colorado disgracefully
fired him in summer 2007, a pattern repeated elsewhere against other activist professors, notably targeting Israeli
critics like Norman Finkelstein, Joel Kovel, Denis Rancourt, and Sami Al-Arian among others.
Al-Arian was also lawlessly arrested, tried, acquitted, imprisoned, brutalized, then freed, but remains under house
arrest awaiting dismissal of spurious charges against him.
Imperial America's War Machine
The empire never sleeps or tolerates anti-war activism, threatening its quest for unchallengeable "full spectrum
dominance" over all land, surface and sub-surface sea, air, space, electromagnetic spectrum and information systems
with enough overwhelming power to fight and win global wars against any adversary, including with nuclear weapons
September 11, 2001 served as pretext to consolidate power, destroy civil liberties and human rights, and wage
permanent wars against invented enemies for global dominance over world markets, resources, and cheap labor -
notably at home and throughout
Eurasia, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia at the expense of democratic freedoms and social
In its 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), the Pentagon called it the "long war." Dick Cheney said wars won't
end in our lifetime, and former CIA Director James Woolsey said America "is engaged in World War IV, and it could
continue for years....This fourth world war, I think, will last considerably longer than either World Wars I or II
did for us."
In his 1990 address to a joint session of Congress, GHW Bush called it a "New World Order," preparing the public
for Operation Desert Storm and years of war and occupation of Iraq, perhaps knowing Serbia/Kosovo, Afghanistan, and
other targeted states would follow.
Obama is America's latest warrior president, succeeding numerous past ones, including Washington, Madison, Jackson,
Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, Wilson, F. Roosevelt, Truman, Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, GHW Bush, Clinton, and GW Bush
Today's stakes, however are far greater and riskier because of Pentagon grand plans, including militarizing space
as a platform for future wars. A previous article explained, accessed through the following link:
It discussed plans to position nuclear, other state-of-the-art weapons, and delivery systems to wage multiple wars
from space anywhere on short notice. Under Obama, the policy remains in place. His May 2010 National Security
"reserve(s) the right to act unilaterally if necessary to defend our nation and our interests." In other words, to
wage preemptive wars, using first-strike nuclear and other destructive weapons "to keep the American people safe
(and advance the nation's) values and ideals," pursuing unchallengeable global/space dominance, ruling by
intimidation and war, making the world safe for capital.
During the Cold War, MAD (mutually assured destruction) held both sides at bay. Today's strategy includes "more
flexible options (for) a wider range of contingencies (with weapons) to optimize performance." It means destroy an
adversary's capabilities preemptively, then target others to eliminate all challenges to US dominance.
With America on a nuclear hair-trigger, it reinvented MAD in new form, threatening potential global nuclear winter,
defined as "a long period of darkness and extreme cold that scientists predict would follow a full-scale nuclear
war, a layer of dust and smoke in the atmosphere cover(ing) the earth and block(ing) the rays of the sun, (causing)
most living organisms (to) perish."
Anti-nuclear expert Helen Caldicott says "one single failure of nuclear deterrence could end human history
(quickly). Once initiated, it would take one hour to trigger a swift, sudden end to life on this planet." Only
nuclear disarmament and abolition of nuclear weapons can stop it, what's never discussed or considered.
On January 17, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower coined the phrase "military industrial complex" in his farewell address,
"....we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military
industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
As he prepared to leave office, he could hardly imagine the difference 50 years would make, transforming fortress
America into a colossus, waging permanent global wars, spending unconscionable amounts on militarism and
threatening planetary survival in the process.
On April 17, 2010, Independent Institute analyst Robert Higgs said annual "defense-related spending greatly exceeds
the amounts budgeted by the Department of Defense," presenting FY 2009 data, the most recent figures available.
The official $636.5 billion spent way understated a growing annual total even Higgs can't fully identify, given
enormous black budgets and hidden add-ons, likely totaling hundreds of billions of dollars. What's known for FY
2009, however, in billions of dollars includes the following:
-- Department of Defense: $636.5
-- Department of Energy (nuclear weapons and environmental cleanup): $16.7
-- Department of State: $36.3
-- Department of Veterans Affairs: $95.5
-- Department of Homeland Security: $51.7
-- Department of the Treasury (for Military Retirement Fund): $54.9
-- Half of NASA's budget: $9.6
-- Net interest attributable to past-debt-financed defense outlays: $126.3
Total: $1,027.5 trillion
Moreover, the National Priorities Project's analysis of FY 2010 discretionary spending showed 62% spent for
military-related purposes, including 4% for veterans' benefits.
For FY 2012, the House approved $690.1 billion, an 8.4% increase (though below the $725 FY 2011 budget, a temporary
drop, likely compensated for with add-ons). The Senate will approve a similar amount. If the entire $1,027.5
trillion increases by the same amount, it raises known FY 2012 defense-related spending to $1,113.8 trillion.
In fact, with supplemental and hidden add-ons, as well as Pentagon, intelligence, and other unknown amounts, the
grand total likely exceeds $1.5 trillion, a figure rising most years while popular needs go begging.
Higgs also cites the unreliability of official numbers. He believes it's more accurate to take the Pentagon's basic
budget and double it because as much as 40% of it is black or hidden. Moreover, as Pentagon power grows, more
spending accrues to congressional districts. As a result, Congress willingly goes along as jobs are allegedly
created. In addition, generous campaign contributions follow - bribes to keep funding the war machine.
Congressional Affirmation of Permanent War
The current House bill, HR 1540 includes a worrisome/duplicitous Sec. 1034: Affirmation of Armed Conflict with
Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Associated Forces, affirming:
"(1) the United States is engaged in an armed conflict with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces and that
those entities continue to pose a threat to the United States and its citizens, both domestically and abroad;
(2) the President has the authority to use all necessary and appropriate force during the current armed conflict
with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public
(3) the current armed conflict includes nations, organization(s), and persons, who --
(A) are part of, or are substantially supporting al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in
hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners; or
(B) have engaged in hostilities or have engaged in hostilities or have directly supported hostilities in aid of a
nation, organization, or person described in subparagraph (A); and
(4) the President's authority pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force....includes the authority to
detain belligerents, including persons described in paragraph (3), until the termination of hostilities."
In September 2001, Congress approved the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) for "the use of United
States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States." Still in
force today, it began the "war on terror," giving George Bush carte blanche authority to wage global wars in
violation of international and constitutional laws. A 2002 AUMF against Iraq followed.
The House (and likely the Senate) FY 2012 Defense Authorization bill affirms that authority, letting Obama as
commander and chief, wage wars anywhere at his discretion. He's taking full advantage, duplicitous congressional
On June 24, in fact, House Republicans and 70 Democrats rejected support for Obama's Libya war, but defeated a
measure to defund it. In other words, they authorized war at the same time symbolically rejecting it, exposing
their gross hypocrisy.
America's Permanent War Agenda
In inflation adjusted dollars, annual defense spending more than doubled under George Bush and keeps rising under
Obama despite growing budget cutting pressures, given a much greater national debt burden than reported.
Officially it's nearly $14.3 trillion (headed for an estimated $15.5 trillion by September 30), exceeding 100% of
GDP at that time. Omitted, however, is another $7.6 trillion owed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and other government
agencies, besides future trillion dollar or more amounts added annually.
It hardly matters, given the military/industrial complex's power to demand what it wants and get it. Today, in
fact, it comprises:
-- defense, technology, energy, financial, private military contractor (PMCs), and other corporate interests;
-- America's media;
-- prominent think tanks and other pressure groups;
-- various others benefitting from militarism; and
-- the Pentagon colossus, a frightening power unto itself, threatening humanity's survival.
The Defense Department's FY 2010 Base Structure Report shows how large it's become, even with important information
DOD is the world's largest landlord with over 539,000 facilities (buildings, structures, and linear structures)
located on nearly 5,000 sites, covering more than 28 million acres and over two billion square feet of space in
America, its territories and overseas. In fact, these numbers way understate much higher totals as many Pentagon
facilities are secret and/or unreported.
They include over 1,000 overseas bases in 150 or more countries, as well as additional secret ones shared with or
leased from host countries. As of April 2009, Congressional Research Service data includes 1,402,000 total active
duty US military personnel worldwide, 73,000 National Guard, and 208,000 Selected Reserves, for a 1,683,000
Add to them America's private military contractor (PMC) army, corporate mercenaries profiting from US imperialism.
They perform a wide range of functions from combat to consulting to logistics, virtually anything once done by the
Pentagon. Moreover, America's intelligence agencies, State Department, Homeland Security, and other branches also
Overall, they're unregulated, unaccountable, and often out-of-control, involved in some of the most controversial
aspects of war from over-billing to ritual slaughter of unarmed civilians. Yet they're not prosecuted, convicted or
imprisoned, just rewarded with fat contracts costing far more for services military personnel once performed.
Moreover, the more they're used, the greater they influence war making, sustaining their bottom line priorities at
the expense of a free society and vital homeland needs.
America's New Military Industrial Complex
On March 1, 2003 Business 2.0 magazine writers Ian Mount, Matthew Maier and David Freedman headlined, "The New
Military Industrial Complex" for digital age war, describing the Pentagon's "revolution in military affairs (RMA),"
comprised of "faster, lighter, smarter" cutting-edge technology warfare. Readying for it, they're building an
unchallengeable high-tech arsenal, more advanced now than then.
The old one remains and gets huge contracts for new and more traditional weapons. The result is an influential
"iron triangle" of Congress, the Pentagon and defense industry. Besides major media support, conservative think
tanks also like:
-- the Project for a New American Century (PNAC); its "Rebuilding America's Defenses" scheme promotes US global
-- the Center for Security Policy (CSP) headed by super-hawk Frank Gaffney endorses a policy of "Peace through
Strength" and perpetual wars for perpetual peace;
-- the Committee on the Present Danger (CPD) composed of hard right leaders and members, "fighting terrorism and
the ideologies that drive it;"
-- the National Institute for Public Policy (NIPP), focusing on defense issues, tied to the nuclear weapons
-- the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), emphasizing national security and "advancing (US)
global interests;" specializing in crisis management, it's connected to the highest levels in government and the
The nation's 16 intelligence agencies, including CIA, NSA, DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), FBI, Army, Navy and
Air Force Intelligence, DHS (Department of Homeland Security), and Department of State comprise another component
destroying a free society. They comprise a multi-billion dollar funded, largely off-the-books, clandestine
anti-democratic network. Interconnected with thousands of private contractors, they're tied to world governments
and their intelligence services.
Moreover, they comprise a government/military/industrial/intelligence service/media/think tank colossus, waging
global wars, bankrupting the nation, wrecking the remnants of a free society. Plagued by the same dynamic that
doomed past empires unwilling to change, they also pursue the misguided notion that militarism sustains growth.
In fact, it erodes it by sacrificing industrial America, shifting production and other high-paying service
operations abroad to focus on war making. As a result, essential homeland needs go begging, including healthcare,
education, job creation, and the nation's infrastructure, crumbling from years of neglect.
In his farewell address, Eisenhower said:
"Every gun that is made, every war ship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from
those who hunger and are not fed, from those who are cold and not clothed."
In his November 2003 Harper's article titled, "The War Business," Chalmers Johnson said:
"(M)unitions and war profiteering have (become) the most efficient means for well-connected capitalists to engorge
themselves at the public trough." Even Wall Street profits hugely. "To call these companies 'private,' though, is
mere ideology. (Weapons and) munitions making in the United States today (and related industries profiting from
them are) not really private enterprise. It is state socialism."
They also destroy constitutional freedoms, what George Washington in 1796 warned about, saying "overgrown military
establishments (are) inauspicious to liberty." Johnson called it America's future, now more the present, saying,
"When war becomes the most profitable course of action, we can certainly expect more of it," sacrificing a free
society for private interests reaping short-term gains.
In his book titled, "Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War," Andrew Bacevich discussed America's
"trinity," its global military presence, power projection, and intervention, creating a "permanent national
security crisis....propell(ing) the United States into a condition approximating perpetual war." However, "(no)
evidence exists - none - to suggest that US efforts advance the cause of global peace," just the opposite. As a
result, "(o)ver the horizon, a shipwreck of epic proportions awaits."

18. 10 Questions The MPs Will Not Ask
By Robin Beste
July 18, 2011 "Stop the War
Coalition" -- What was it about the relationship with Murdoch that made Tony Blair feel it was appropriate to
take a phone call from a newspaper proprietor just hours prior to the most momentous decision a prime
minister can make: ordering the country's armed forces to war? [Nazarene Remnant comment: And why did the 33rd degree Freemason PM of Australia, John Winston Howard,
frog-march Australia into Iraq right behind Blair?]
When Rupert Murdoch appears before the parliamentary committee on 19 July 2011, here are ten
questions the MPs certainly will not ask about the relationship he had with Tony Blair during the run up to
the Iraq war, when Murdoch was, in the words of Blair's former press officer Lance Price, "the third most
powerful figure in the Labour government," after Blair himself and Gordon Brown.
- In 2002-3 all of your 127 newspapers around the world, with a combined circulation of 40
million a week, supported the Iraq war. We now know you were often in direct contact with the then prime
minister Tony Blair, who you said at the time was "extraordinarily courageous and strong" and who had
"shown great guts" in planning the war on Iraq. How much
coordination was there between Downing Street and News International on the media presentation
of what was widely regarded as an illegal war?
- You said when interviewed in the run up to the war that Iraq's oil was central to the
rationale for overthrowing Saddam Hussein: "The greatest thing to come out of this for the world
economy...would be $20 a barrel for oil. That's bigger than any tax cut in any country." Tony Blair
always insisted in public that Iraq's oil played no part in the decision to attack Iraq. To what extent did he agree with you in private that getting control of the world's second biggest oil reserves was at the heart of the
- All of your newspapers used Tony Blair's "dodgy dossier" of September 2002 to try and
generate a war fever with the bogus claim that -- in the words of The Sun headline -- "BRITS 45 MINUTES FROM DOOM". The hand of Alistair
Campbell, Blair's press officer, is widely regarded as having been responsible for the dossier's
fabrications. There was no coverage in the Sun or the rest of News International's outlets, when it was
revealed that some of this dossier, which was supposed to present a cast iron case for attacking Iraq,
was drawn from a 12-year old thesis, published on the internet by a PhD student. Was this because you and Blair made a pact that News International would
be relentless in promoting the war, even if this meant using lies and
- You spoke to Tony Blair by telephone on 11 March 2003, after the announcement by the then
French prime minister Jacques Chirac that France would veto a second United Nations resolution
sanctioning war against Iraq. Blair was banking on this resolution to help sell a war that was opposed by
an overwhelming majority of the British public. The next day, the Sun wrote, "Like a cheap tart who puts
price before principle, money before honour, Jacques Chirac struts the streets of shame. The French
President's vow to veto the second resolution at the United Nations - whatever it says - puts him right
in the gutter." To what extent did your conversation with Blair
influence the co-ordinated attack on Chirac across all of your
- You spoke again with Blair on 13 March 2003. The next day, the Sun intensified its vitriolic
abuse of Chirac: "Charlatan Jacques Chirac is basking in cheap applause for his 'Save Saddam' campaign -
but his treachery will cost his people dear. This grandstanding egomaniac has inflicted irreparable
damage on some of the most important yet fragile structures of international order." Did your
conversation with Tony Blair reveal that the "grandstanding egomaniac" and "damage to the structures of
international order" may have been more appropriately applied to
him rather than to Chirac?
- Your third phone call with Tony Blair within nine days took place on 19 March 2003, the day
before the Iraq war started. What was it about the relationship
you had with Tony Blair that made him feel it was appropriate to take a phone call from a newspaper
proprietor just hours prior to the most momentous decision a prime minister can
make: ordering the country's armed forces to war?
- When the United Nations inspectors under Hans Blix could find no evidence of Iraq having
weapons of mass destruction, the coverage in your newspapers bordered on hysteria -- "HE'S GOT 'EM. LET'S
GET HIM" screamed the Sun headline. When it was later shown
beyond dispute that the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq never
existed, did you not feel that News International should have issued an apology for promoting
a lie to justify an illegal war?
- You spoke to Tony Blair on January 29, 2004. This was the day after the Sun leaked extracts
from the Hutton Report into the death of government scientist David Kelly, who had been hounded to suicide by Alistair Campbell and
the Blair spin machine. Kelly had been revealed -- almost certainly by a leak from Blair's office -- as
the source of the BBC report that said the case for war had been
"sexed up" in the "dodgy
dossier". The Hutton Report, since thoroughly discredited as a whitewash, said Blair and
Campbell were -- in the Sun's words -- "completely cleared of criticism". No such fate for the chairman
of the BBC Greg Dyke and chairman of the BBC governors Gavyn Davies, both of whom resigned, as Blair,
Campbell and your newspapers took the opportunity to savage the BBC for broadcasting the "sexed up"
claim. When you spoke to Tony Blair on 29 January, were you both
gloating over a spin job well done through the leaking of the Hutton report to the Sun, arranged we
must assume between Alistair Campbell and Rebekah Wade (now Brooks), who was then editor of the
- You are renowned for putting the interests and the profits of your media empire above all
other considerations. What payoff did News International get from
Tony Blair for the unqualified support it gave for his illegal war in Iraq?
- Over one million people were killed in Iraq. Another four million were made refugees by the war. The country's infrastructure was so
devastated that even today, electricity is rationed for many Iraqis, many still do not have access to
clean drinking water or a functioning sewage system, and the health service, which was once the most
advanced in the region, now struggles to provide a decent level of care. I79 British soldiers were killed and
hundreds more suffered life changing injuries. As a direct result of the war, Britain suffered terrorist
atrocities on 7 July 2005, in which 52 people were killed. Does
your conscience ever regret the key part that you and your newspapers played in promoting an illegal war
which has brought such death and destruction to the Iraqi people, unbearable bereavement to the families
of British soldiers sent to kill and be killed for a lie, and
increased insecurity from the threat of terrorist attack to the people of

Emergency Services - March 1996
The Victorian State Government headed by Mr Jeff Kennett promised prior to his re-election that
every state secondary school will establish emergency service cadet corps to help develop leadership and
social skills. Many-private, fee paying schools have maintained army orientated cadet corps but these have
been eliminated from the public state education system for many years.
It is interesting to note that instead of basing the new cadet corps solely on the Army, the
State Government proposes to involve 213,000 students in all other military and emergency services. Students
will have a choice of training with the Army, Air Force, Navy, Police, Fire Brigade, Country Fire Authority,
Conservation Department and the Metropolitan Ambulance Services. It is expected that in two to three years
time a large pool of basically trained young personnel will be available to support these services if
required. This programme is already in existence in Western Australia and it is expected to be adopted by
most other states over the next two years. The cost of operating the scheme in Victoria is expected to be
around $50,000,000 per year.
Considering the effort being put into the reorganisation and development of all Australian
emergency services the Cadet system (like the Scout movement) is an excellent way of training young and
enthusiastic personnel for future use without having to enlighten them as to their true purpose. If all
Australian states join in there could be as many as 1,000,000 students under part time training by the end of
After his re-election in March Mr. Kennett immediately authorised a pilot study programme to
commence in several schools in view of developing a state wide Cadet system by 1997.
(1) During late March the Federal Government announced that the Australian Army would start
training Singapore Air Force helicopter pilots at the Army
Aviation Centre at Oakey, 150KM west of Brisbane where a squadron of twelve super puma helicopters and about
two hundred and fifty service personnel and their families would be based. Singapore forces already had
flight training at several RAAF bases and armoured training at Shoalwater Bay, Queensland.
(2) The Federal Government announced that it was purchasing one
hundred special multi wheeled armoured all terrain vehicles, for the Army. These will be
supplied by Canada and stationed in the northern part of Australia. The government has also decided to set up
a part manufacturing programme for these vehicles in the near future. It is expected that more than five
hundred will be produced within three years.
(3) The Labor Government lost the federal election in March and were replaced by the Howard
Conservative government. One of the new governments first action was to instruct the Australian Submarine
Corporation to speed up the production of the Collins class submarines. The production is presently running
to the original schedule but the government wants them as soon as possible. The factory will be expanded and
staff numbers increased to achieve this.
(4) The frigate building programme in Melbourne is also to be speeded up. So far the second
frigate is operational and the third is due to be launched this year. The government wants all 10 within
(5) It appears that Australia has continued to purchase large numbers of used but refurbished
F111 fighter bombers from the USA. There are indications
that the airforce now has around 280 F-111 aircraft at their disposal! This is an enormous
number in anyone's estimation and it is difficult to understand why Australia would need such a large number
(6) The ever increasing amount of sophisticated military equipment is causing a serious shortage
of skilled man power to operate it, particularly in the airforce. To get around part of the problem the armed
services are offering positions to outside contractors such experienced airline pilots and flight engineers.
Of course no one will go into such services for lower wages so the services have agreed to pay such outsiders
at commercial rates and add a variety of benefits and perks to make the new positions more attractive. This
means that an experienced pilot contracted from outside the airforce could be paid three or four times more
than a regular careers airforce pilot of the same rank. Obviously the urgency of obtaining the services of
the new staff outweighs the conflicts it will no doubt cause. It has been rumoured that, should the need
arise, the US government will provide a large number of skilled personnel on a lease basis to operate all the
equipment should this prove necessary during a time of emergency.
(7) Shortly after the new federal government came to power in March, new discussions began with
the US Government about the establishment of a
greater American military presence in Australia. These discussions are still underway and are
expected to continue for most of 1996. The US government has asked Australia to agree to the establishment of
a major network of military supply bases in Australia which will be stocked with large quantities of
munitions, spare parts and complete equipment to fully support any American military operations in the
Asia/Pacific area. The US government has promised substantial investment in this project involving the joint
co-operation of Australian companies.
(8) The US government has proposed that a major naval base be
built for their use at Darwin in the Northern Territory. It is expected that the Australian
government will agree to this during 1996.
(9) The US government has further requested the setting up of training facilities in Australia
at which American military personnel can be field trained in all forms of warfare. This would be in addition
to the present air force training facilities already in operation.
(10) Apart from the new naval base at Darwin, the US government has suggested they establish a
substantial military presence in the northern part of Australia. This will be discussed in Washington in
June, 1996. [Nazarene Remnant comment: This presence will be in
many parts of Northern Australia, with Townsville and Bowen being prime areas. As well RAAF Base Sherger, 30
km North of Weipa is still awaiting aircraft and personnel, besides the 300 Afghans it currenly—January
(11) The new Australian Prime Minister, Mr. Howard, made it clear in May 1996 that Australia
must have wider and closer co-operation with the USA "at every level."
(12) On the 11th June, 1996 the Australian government announced that there would a major shake
up of all military services with a much greater emphasis placed on combat capability and readiness than top
In March it was announced by the US and Australian governments that the top secret base at Pine
Gap, Central Australia was being expanded. A second above ground power station is now under construction as
well as a large number of houses for additional staff. Normally Pine Gap has a staff of 400 to 500 at any one
time. This is being increased to around 1,200 this year. The reason given for the expansion was the need to
keep a close watch on the Asian area with particular attention being paid to the development of economic
espionage. The fact that such a dubious reason was given in the first place is extremely unusual. Perhaps odd
would be a better description. One wonders if the E.T.'s are also having redecoration done.
New Space Launch Facility To Be Built Near Darwin
On the 19th June it was announced that a new rocket launch facility would be built near Darwin,
Northern Territory. This will be financed by Australian, Russian, US and South East Asian money (particularly
from Thailand). Being close to the equator, larger than normal payloads can be launched. Large Russian made
rockets will be used for this purpose. Initially these will be fully imported and then part manufactured by
the Australian Submarine Corporation in South Australia together with the smaller Russian designed rocket
delivery systems they are planning to produce by 1997. It is envisaged that the facility will launch hundreds
of satellites for both civilian and military purposes by the end of the decade.
Initially it was proposed that such a facility be built in the northern part of Queensland but
due to aboriginal land claims this proposal was shelved. It is also important to note that the Darwin space
facilities would be close to the proposed new American naval base and air station which would compliment the
military operations centred there.
Police And Prisons
As of early 1996 the various State and Federal police forces continue to expand their special
operations groups and to train with the military SAS. The excuse is still the same, to counter terrorist
activities that may occur during the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000. Apart from these activities
selected groups in these police forces are being trained to search for weapons in readiness for the impending
anti-gun legislation which will be introduced during the second half of 1996.
Since 1994 the police and the military have been conducting joint counter-terrorist exercises of
a new and rather sinister nature. The make believe enemies are Australian citizens who start agitating on the
subjects of "foreign ownership of Australian resources and business and foreign involvement in the Australian
governmental system." It appears that the Anti-Terrorist Plan has been modified to give emphasis to such
possible civil activities. These modifications also include insistence that the government takes action to
remove as many firearms as possible from civilian hands. It is interesting to note that foreign ownership in
Australian business and resources is now above 90% and a large proportion of that is in the hands of American
The development of the private prison system has continued with some speed since the beginning
of 1996. In April the Victorian government announced that a new women's prison would be built in 1996/97 and
operated by the "Correction Corporation of Australia" which is an American owned company in competition with
Wackenhut Inc. It seems that the criticism of Wackenhut Inc. has caused the government to share this
profitable business with others hungry for such opportunities. An additional men's prison will be built at
the same time and managed by the British based company "Guard Force Ltd." which, in the main, is controlled
by American shareholders.
The Attack On Gun Ownership
Unfortunately since 1987 Australia has been subjected to a series of mass shootings perpetrated
by supposed lone crazed individuals wanting to get back at society. Each time such an atrocity has occurred
there has been a clamour to ban all guns held by the civilian community. The most recent shooting was
perpetrated at the tourist site of Port Arthur in Tasmania during April 1996 when thirty five tourists were
killed by a wealthy 27 year old local man using two stolen guns for no apparent reason. Within hours a
co-ordinated propaganda campaign of unprecedented proportions was launched in the media, aimed at the
elimination of private gun ownership starting with the Australia wide banning of all. self loading rifles and
shotguns and the restriction of ammunition sales.
The Federal Government was quick to seize the opportunity and obtained prompt agreement from the
states to ban various types of weapons and demonise gun ownership in general. The result has been a public
uproar and the possibility of the federal coalition government being seriously damaged by the eventual loss
of seats in it's grass root electorates.
This has not stopped the government who strangely suggest that they do not care if they lose
power as a result of their new extremist policy. At this point the reader should refer to the extract of the letter from Western Australia on
Page 28 of this report. The Australian government does not seem to be in control of the situation.
Despite the noise and the government threats to ban all privately owned firearms together with
the incongruous sight of the new Prime Minister, John Howard, addressing a large group of pro gun
demonstrators wearing a bulging bullet proof vest, the government has a major problem. To understand this
problem it is important to take a short look at some of Australia's past history in relation to the,
ownership and use of firearms.
Since Captain Cook (the official British discoverer of Australia) arrived at Botany Bay more
than two hundred years ago, firearms have been an important part of Australian society. They were used to
subdue hostile native, hunt for food, guard convicts and train new settlers to defend the colony against the
possible invasions from France and Russia.
Also, to support all British Colonial objectives wherever such support was deemed necessary.
Remaining a Crown Colony until 1901 the founders of Australia were regularly involved in British. military
affairs throughout the Empire. After federation and the creation of quasi self rule in Australia the
obligation remained and it was not until the end of the second World War that Australian allegiance to the
British Empire began to fade in favour of the USA
Guns had played a vital role in the forging of a nation and the support of a great empire, often
at enormous individual cost. There is an unquestionable tradition of gun ownership in Australia and an
ingrained sense that the right of such legitimate ownership involving the defence of the home and nation
should not be challenged by anyone. Thus it is difficult to understand why the Australian government, which
must have an appreciation of these facts, has acted in such a high handed way and is telling a large section
of the Australian population to lay down it's arms. The Port Arthur massacre is being used as the excuse to
attempt the civilian disarmament of the country, causing immediate and strong resistance from several million
Australians. Even more puzzling is the assumption by the government that, following rushed legislation,
citizens will simply hand in their guns for a small compensation payment. As only three states in Australia
have had any form of gun registration in operation over the past 20 years there is no record of where all the
Further in those states (Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia) where registration was
introduced in the 1980's it was an accepted fact that only about 15% to 20% of the guns privately owned at
that time were registered in the first place. As for Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and the Northern
Territory no method of registration was ever introduced so there is no way of locating the many millions of
guns in those areas.
To give the reader an idea of the magnitude of gun ownership in Australia the Victoria Police
Force estimated in 1995 that there was approximately three guns for every man, woman and child in Australia.
With a population of just over 18 million this means there are around 54 million guns in private hands and
only a small percentage of this number are recorded in only three states. It is safe to say that it would be
totally impossible to confiscate even a small number of these weapons without the full co-operation of the
Australian public. It is very unlikely that such co-operation will be given and the government knows it. So
why are they intent on turning this matter into a major political issue which is already starting to threaten
the very foundations of democratic government in Australia? Could it be that the pressure to embark on such
an impossible task is coming from outside the country? Due to their lack of understanding, could the future
intended occupiers of Australia, the representatives of the new world order, have made a gross miscalculation
of the Australian reaction to their demands? The author feels that this is a decided possibility and events
could easily get out of control and produce a major political backlash against these policies.
Another point of interest is that the Australian armed forces own little more than 250,000 small
arms. When this is compared with the estimated 54 million in the Australian community it pales into
insignificance. It also represents a very real threat against any official organisations, either foreign or
local which may decide to use force to get it's way. Like the United States an armed population
is a very big deterrent to totalitarian forces and more a preserver of freedom than a destroyer of it. The
Australian government knows this yet relentlessly pursues it's ill advised policies. Perhaps they have no
choice. When they are told to jump they say 'how
It is also rumoured that all present political parties in government are agreeing with one
another on the issue because their leadership is aware of the danger facing the country and when something
happens they will be forced into a government of national unity anyway. It certainly would explain the
bizarre newspaper and T.V. images of all the opposing party leaders, standing together, with their arms
around each others shoulders, like long lost brothers.
It seems apparent that Australia is being prepared to survive some form of major disaster in the
not too distant future. There is some sort of timetable in existence pointing towards the end of the present
decade. The big question is what are they expecting that can not be revealed to the public? Could it be a
cosmic cataclysm involving a comet or asteroid striking the earth? Are preparations being made with the help
of friendly extraterrestrials to resist an invasion of inimical forces from outer space? Is a climatic or
seismic crisis developing which would cause social disruption and war throughout the world? Nothing is sure,
only that obvious and massive preparations are being made to protect and secure the Australian continent from
a cataclysmic event. No doubt time will tell.

Immigration (Refer To Pages 9 And 10)
On the 4th July, 1996 the Federal Government announced that new restrictions would be placed on
the number of immigrants allowed to enter Australia., Family reunion will be eliminated as a reason for
automatic entry to Australia and emphasis will now be placed on English language capabilities and personal
skills. Also immigrants will have to pay a bond of A$30,000 to the government to ensure that they do not
settle in major cities but take up residence in rural areas and towns. Should they move to a major city such
as Sydney or Melbourne they would forfeit the bond. By introducing such complex regulations the government is
expected to cut the rate of immigration by at least 50%.
The New 'Sherger' Air Base
On the 7th July, 1996 the Federal Government announced the establishment of a new air base
situated at the north west tip of Cape York Peninsula (the most northern point of Australia) near the small
mining town of Wiepa. The base will have a three kilometre runway and facilities for the accommodation of six
hundred staff. The completion date for this new A$150 million project is November, 1998. It is interesting to
note that due to the lack of man power the base will only have a caretaker staff. All other personnel will be
flown in during times of need (see page 30 paragraph 6).
Japanese Space Shuttle (See Page 21 Paragraph 6)
During the first week of July, 1996 Japan successfully tested their first 1/3 scale model of
their space shuttle by launching it from a helicopter. It landed by remote control on the main Woomera
airport runway. A full scale prototype will now be constructed.

The Uncensored National Rumor
20. What Is The “Green” and Environmental Movement Really All About? (Part
The Green Prince: Apollyon And The Green Bible
During the old Roman Empire, the fasces were a bundle of rods bound by the helve (head) of an axe, and borne by
the victors before the Roman magistrates in symbol of their authority at once to scourge and decapitate. The
fasces symbolized the power of individuals all brought together in union and harmony under the emperor and
The Roman fasces only
contained an axe head whenever an official state of war
existed. Since Rome was in a state of
war most of the time, rarely were fasces without the axe head ever seen. During a state of emergency, the emperor or
leader was given supreme power to do as he wished without consulting the senate. In this case he
was given the title ‘dictator,’ and on this occasion the fasces were considered to be invested totally in
Emperors treated the fasces with the same
respect as a modern ruler would respect his national flag or coat of arms. Usually the fasces preceded the
emperor before his address to the Roman senate. The axe head on the fasces was removed while conducting business
in Roman government buildings, which served as a reminder that the bearers had no life or death powers within
their jurisdiction – unlike the emperor.
A dominant feature of Roman fascism is
that it “merged” the rich merchants and bankers together in “union” with the socialist Roman state headed by the
emperor who was the supreme leader. It was he alone who ultimately, had supreme dictatorial
power to “scourge and decapitate” in his position as dictator. Mussolini and Hitler did exactly
that during the Second World War.
Today the two chief fascist state
governments in the world are those of Britain and the United States. To symbolize the British Sovereign’s
fascist control of the world, four tritons (Tritones were the sons of
Neptune/Poseidon) carry the Sovereign in the Gold State
Coach, with the front two carrying conch shells as trumpets, and the rear two carrying the Roman
fasces. Dolphins, sacred to Apollo (Apollyon), hold in place the splinter bar by which the coach (and Sovereign)
is driven. To symbolize the British Sovereign’s fascist power over the US
government, these two fasces are also mounted on the wall at the back of the Speaker’s Podium in the
US House of Representatives.
While it is true that all socialism be it Fascism, Marxism, Communism, Christian Socialism
or Fabian Socialism are all the same in that they are all based
around the worship of the pagan sun god and mother earth goddess, Prince Charles’ particular version of
socialism is more a “merger” of neo-Nazi fascism (with the fascist state leader working with big business and
corporations) and Fabian Socialism (where the state leader introduces his socialist policies “gradually,” rather
than by direct revolution or confrontation like Marxism).
Fascism is the ‘merger’ of
state socialism with corporatism. Just
as Hitler and Mussolini colluded hand in hand with unprincipled big business interests to carry out their
despotic reigns of terror, so is Prince Charles now doing “subtly” through his many
influential charities and IBLF on a global basis.
Prince’s Charities is a powerful group of
not-for-profit organizations of which the Prince of Wales is president. Currently there are about 17 of which 15
have personally been founded by the Prince himself. Five of these organizations actively work to control his
global corporate environmental program through all of the world’s largest banks and corporations; Business and the Environment Program
(BEP), Business in the
Community (BITC), Scottish Business in the Community (SBC), Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum
(IBLF) and In Kind Direct.
The Prince of Wales Business and the Environment Program (BEP) has the stated objective of getting
all global corporations and companiesto integrate his concepts of sustainability into their
thinking and practices. Each year he hosts a meeting for the alumni of BEP, and one of its major
creations is the Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change, which now
is the most significant influence in the world on corporate and government policies on energy and global warming
The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) was formed in 1990 by Charles to
bring his ideas on business and development to global banks and corporations. Through the IBLF, Charles now directly
controls the policies of just about every major bank and corporation in the world. Today
the IBLF leads numerous global corporate environmental projects, such as the International Hotels Environment Initiative, which now sets the environmental standards
and policies of all the major hotel
chains throughout the world.
His charity, In Kind Direct, was founded in 1996 to distribute companies’ surplus goods to
charities. Not only is he leading the global corporate environmental and sustainable development program, he is
Royal Patron of the Soil
Association, Patron of the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, The Royal Society for Nature Conservation, Marine
Conservation Society, International Tree Foundation, Garden Organic, Climate Group, and on and
(Apollyon)in Greek mythology, was the most “subtle” and “cunning” benevolent
incarnation of the dragon and Satan of all. In ancient Rome he almost deceived everyone! – In Revelation 13:4, John said a
future day was coming when the whole world was going to worship this dragon!
One could quite easily call him the great “deceiver” and “paradox”
god. On the one hand, he was
characterized in statues and sculptures as an innocent, naked, pure, handsome young man, clean shaven and
carrying either a lyre, or his bow and arrows. He was the sacred god of light, peace and harmony, a Christ-like
figure, god of prophecy, philosophy, colonization, medicine, healing, archery (but not for war or hunting),
poetry, dance, music, agriculture, trees, protector of cattle and fruit trees, herds and flocks, shepherds,
protector of pastures, the elimination of plagues, the giver of divine guidance and the “savior” of the earth,
for the Greek and Roman people.
But on the other
hand, deceptively lurking beneath his
innocent looking posture, he had a deceptively wicked split personality and was a sexual deviant. He was a
ruthless tyrant when he got angry. With Artemis, his wife and sister, he murdered the Niabids with his poisoned
arrows. He sent the deadly plague on his enemies. He was transformed into a serpent and a dragon. In short –
the Devil in disguise – Apollyon – the destroyer – who, incarnated in Augustus, became the
tyrannical chief enemy of liberty and freedom, of Jesus Christ and his disciples.
Like Apollo and Augustus, paradoxically,
on the one hand, Prince Charles equally wants to become the “savior” of the environment and mother earth through
his sustainable development policies introduced by the UN, governments and corporate sector. He wisely wants to
encourage his people to produce and eat more vegetarian and organic food, support natural health products and
remedies in medicine, help farmers and agriculturalists eliminate the negative aspects of intensive production,
save the world’s forests and fisheries, and through his many charities and his Prince’s Trust wants to help
disadvantaged young people, the unemployed, the destitute, and everybody and everything else in general. Like
Apollo, he supports the arts, music, theatre, and many Hollywood stars and musicians are among his chief
ambassadors and admirers.
He outwardly opposes wars, plagues, world
starvation, opposes vaccination, chemical pesticides and herbicides in agriculture and so on. But on the other hand, there is a much
“darker side” to his outwardly, unassuming, innocent-looking character:
Paradoxically, the very companies,
corporations, banks and leading business CEO’s and “knights of the Realm” that support his many charities and
are members of his IBLF, are also the very same fascist organizations that have relentlessly destroyed the rain forests in
Brazil, raped the world’s fisheries, manufactured and sprayed much of the world’s farms with chemical pesticides
and herbicides, monopolized the world’s health, pharmaceutical, energy, water, seed and food resources (Monsanto
is a good example).
In two world wars they have unabatedly
made trillions of dollars of profits out of manufacturing and selling military weapons, thrown millions of
people into concentration camps, starvation and death, dropped millions of lethal bombs and chemicals on
innocent people, murdered countless millions in Russia, China, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. Even today, they are
making trillions of dollars more from secretly building up the world’s massive global stockpile of military
armaments and other even more deadly space-based hi-tech weaponry.
Paradoxically, at the Earth Summit in Rio,
through Agenda 21 (300 pages) and other radical
UN documents such as the Global Biodiversity Assessment (1100 pages)
promoted by the UN Conference on Human Settlements, Habitat II,
Prince Charles was indirectly responsible for introducing an old pagan concept which “inverted” all of the existing, constitutional, democratic, personal and
property rights and values espoused by Christianity – and transferred
them to the environment and the religion of mother earth Gaia
worship. In this religion, a tree becomes more valuable than a human being.
A rare bird becomes more valuable than a high producing farm or a large hospital.
The first Habitat conference was held in
1974 and it specifically identified “private property”
ownership as a threat to the peace and equality of the environment. The UN’s secret agenda through
“environmentalism” and “sustainable development” is very cunning and has deceived a lot
of well-meaning people.
Most people genuinely want to protect the
environment and ensure that the earth’s resources are “sustainable” for future generations there is no doubt.
But the socialist goal of “sustainable development” and “environmentalism” has absolutely nothing to do
with protecting the environment or sustainability at all. It is all
about world dictatorship, a one
world government and pagan
religion, the abolition of
private property and property rights, and ultimately, collectivization of housing
and farms under fascist
corporate State control under a one world leader.
Under this system, all of the small
farmer’s and private property owner’s rights would be effectively extinguished and overridden by strict
environmental and sustainable development resource consents and laws. The penalty for cutting a tree down
without the appropriate government consent would become worse than murder. Not only would you have to license
your dog, to own a dog you would have to be licensed too. Farmers would need to be licensed to operate or work
on their collectivized farms, spray weeds, care for cattle or drive their tractors under new Soviet-styled
health and safety laws. All tradesmen and professional workers would have to be accredited
and licensed, as would all Christian pastors and churches, and any other persons or institutions that
could be likely to criticize their socialist bosses.
All potential young parents would
need to have a license to have children, and if there
was any family genetic weakness of some sort in their state-controlled doctor’s medical records, no license
would be given. In the end you would need a license or permit to take your boat on a lake, take your kid fishing
off a wharf, or travel between towns or cities.
Everything including man and
beast would be micro-chipped, tattooed,
or marked for identification and all buying and selling. Most essential commodities like fuel and food would be
rationed. In short, a new, full-blown fascist “Fourth Reich”
global Nazi state!
At a speech by HRH The Prince of Wales,
introducing H. Lee Scott Jr., CEO and President of Wal-Mart Stores, (one of the biggest companies in the world)
at the 2007 lecture of The Prince of Wales’ Business and Environment Program, Banqueting House, London, Prince
“Today we are celebrating the first
anniversary of Wal-Mart’s announcement that within five years it will source all its fish from stocks certified
by the Marine Stewardship Council … I think it is right to
acknowledge publicly that this initiative began with Unilever, just as the equally successful Forest Stewardship Council started with B & Q. In each case, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) found a brave and innovative company as a
partner … Of course, I don’t need to tell any of you that true sustainable development is about far more than
the environment alone. It is about building a society both now and for future generations in which the natural
and social capital are in harmony. My point is that to achieve this we urgently need leaders who are willing
to make the first move.”
On October 9, 2007, Thomas Nelson Inc. and
paper manufacturer Domtar, published the first bible in history on Prince Charles’ Forest Stewardship Council certified paper. What was it called? – The Green Bible!
Based on the spurious NRSV text, and
published in conjunction with the Sierra Club, The Humane Society and the Eco-Justice Program of the National
Council of Churches USA, it has contributions from Desmond Tutu, Pope John Paul II and many others. (Charles has
even got the present pope calling himself a “Green Pope” now as well).
The blasphemous slogan on the front cover
of the bible says: “Understand the Bible’s powerful message for the
earth.” – (i.e., “mother earth” – not mankind!). Lauren F. Winner, of Duke Divinity School, says in the
advertizing for the new bible; “We need to get serious about getting green. The Green Bible is challenging,
inspiring, and hopeful. It will change the way you think, and the way you live.”
Understandably, the apostle Paul
eloquently summarized this sad practice of “green” sun god and mother earth goddess worship of his day, when he
wisely wrote to the Romans:
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither
were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the
glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts,
and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of
their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a
lie, and worshipped
and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.Amen.” (Romans 1:20-25)

22. Cold War Myth: An Exercise In
The Use Of The Dialectic
By Charlotte Iserbyt
November 23, 2002
Just because the commies (peaceniks) are opposed to Bush's agenda, for their dangerous reasons, does not mean we
true constitutionalists have to side with Skull and Bones Bush's march to war. (Read America's Secret
Establishment... An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones...can be ordered from me for only $30. Make
check payable to: 3D Research Co., 1062 Washington St., Bath, ME 04530). I know you guys know that but thought I'd
put my views on paper so that you can forward them wherever you wish. This is what I try to say on my radio
interviews. It's late, very late.
We've made that mistake (supporting the Republican Party) through the years, feeling that the Republicans are
constitutionalists and care about our sovereignty, etc. Nixon gave us regional government; Reagan signed the
education agreements with the Soviet Union (Gorbachev). (I used to be a Republican but am now an Independent)
Carroll Quigley, Clinton's mentor at Georgetown Univ. explained the internationalists'/financiers' control of
both parties in his book Tragedy and Hope. The more I read and the more I "think" and "ponder" the events of the
past century the more I believe there was never really a Cold War. I also worked in Soviet Affairs in the State
Department and had many questions then...in 1958/59...I typed the press release lying to the world about Gary
Powers when his U-2 was shot down over Soviet Union.
Why would there be a Cold War when the powers that be on Wall Street created the Soviet Union (also supported
Hitler) and the United Nations was formed by communists. The UN Charter written by Alger Hiss Soviet agent and top
Carnegie official, and Russian-born Leo Pasvolsky. Very interesting entry in my book on page 112, Don Bell's
article re "White House conference on the Industrial World", 1972. This article contains proof of USA and other
nation's knowledge, 20 years beforehand, of Wall coming down and phoney collapse of communism in order to implement
international economic system (world govt., communism).
All wars since WWII have been UN-sponsored in order to debilitate our country, get our youth on drugs, and move
us toward Lenin's goal of international socialism (world govt.) Education was also used for same purpose. Don't
have to go into that, except mention U.S.-Soviet Ed agreements which speak for themselves.
Opposition from the left to Bush's planned invasion of Iraq is no more diabolical than Bush's plans for war and
world government. Left's opposition represents use of dialectic. Most of those opposing it don't even understand
the dialectic, but the elite implementing World Government understand its use beautifully. They need Saddam Hussein
(enemy) and the left's opposition to Bush's war vs. Bush's agenda in order to arrive at the synthesis, another move
towards world government. The left opposed the UN's war in Vietnam as well in order to come to the synthesis,
defeat and another step forward for the communists. Try telling a leftist friend from sixties the war in Vietnam
was a UN war! Good luck! Try that on a conservative who should know better and he/she is probably equally
uninformed. That fact went down the memory hole long ago!
When will we learn? Don't forget Gorbachev's comment in London 2 years ago that the European Union is the New
Soviet Union. Don't forget that the Republican Party several years back invited Gorbachev as keynote speaker at
luncheon to raise money for Republican candidates.
No question that Bush is implementing communism (a softer, gentler kind? just wait):
(1) planned economy (failed socialism) through STW initiatives (quotas for jobs), like in Cuba, N. Korea, China,
old Soviet Union, recommended by Carnegie Corp. in 1934 when AHA published its Conclusions and Recommendations for
the Social Studies...change America from individualist economy to planned, socialist economy in "World Order."
Communism calls for combination of industry and government and education and work. Don't forget Carnegie Corp .
piloted OBE (Eight Year Study) in 1930s. this study paved way for implementation Skinnerian/Pavlovian
performance-based, results-based, outcome-based education in 80s and 90s and ultimately what we see going on now:
school to work (STW). Lynn Cheney, Vice President's wife, testified eloquently in opposition to STW three years
ago. Where is she now? Muffled due to her husband's position working for the big supporter of STW and the New World
(2) school vouchers for federal control (dumbing down) of all schools, including home schools (Bennett taking
care of that with his Virtual Academy charter school: fed funded)
(3) Faith-based initiatives. Don't forget Washington Post article re: George Bush's faith-based initiatives
which WP called "communitarianism" which most dictionaries define as a communistic form of government. This
communitarian agenda (old community ed) includes UN's lifelong learning under unelected school district and all
services run through schools. National Alliance of Business refers to this glowingly as K-80. Faith-based
initiative will result in takeover over of churches just as in Soviet Union. Russian Orthodox Church funded by
Moscow was and probably still is arm of KGB. (Not much left to do to American Christian churches; they did it to
themselves...read Time mag. article in my book re Federal Council of Churches plans for world government back in
(4) Bush supports most of what Chairman of Communist Party in 1932, William Foster buried with honors in The
Kremlin, called for in his book "Toward a Soviet America". Bush supports unconstitutional Department of Education
and has mandated national curriculum and national testing. supports scientific research-based reading method
(Skinner) called for in Reading Excellence Act, and S1 mandates Use of Skinnerian/Pavlovian method first for
phonics-based instruction, later for school to work and all subjects. This is mastery learning/ direct instruction.
Skinner said "I could make a pigeon a high achiever by reinforcing it on a proper schedule."
Department of Education suported by Bush is involved in implementing communist agenda: School to work agenda,
Humanistic (atheistic) curriculum including evolution, internationalism, etc. No right/no wrong curriculum: Alger
Hiss's good friend, Gen. Brock Chisholm, Canadian psychiatrist, called for getting rid of the conscience in speech
he gave in 1945 to World Health Organization (UN). We see results of his recommendation carried out in no right/no
wrong curriculum implemented from 1965 on in our schools: Columbine, etc., etc. ENRON?
(5) Patriot Act and Homeland Security which, aside from trampling on our constitutional rights, initially called
for TIPS program. Mistake on Bush's part...moving too fast in implementing police state. He had to back off TIPS.
Use of COPS program whereby police become social workers and come into our homes and are used in schools.
(6) Public/Private partnership (corporate fascism/socialism). Reagan started them. I was liaison from Dept. of
Ed with White House when that happened. Communist Manifesto calls for partnership of government and industry.
(7) U.S.-Soviet education agreements signed first by Eisenhower in 1958, and through the years by other
presidents and then by Carnegie and Reagan in 1985 (most extensive ones). Merger of U.S. and Soviet Union: Refer to
Congresional Hearings 1953 during which Norman Dodd told by Gaither, President, Ford Foundation that tax-exempt
foundations received their orders from The White House (Eisenhower at that time) to use their money to change
America so it could be comfortabley merged with Soviet Union.
(8) Regional government at local, state, national and international levels which is Lenin's international
socialism. Bush involved in setting up "New Soviet Union" in this hemisphere modelled on European Union referred to
by Gorbachev as "New Soviet Union". Lenin called for regionalization of world. Regionalism is communism. See Daily
World entry in my book, comments by Morris Zeitlin.
Put all of the above together and what do we have?
Since Republicans are now in control of Congress why not demand that they sumbit legislation calling for
abolishing unconstitutional U.S. Department of Education. Be sure to tell them that means "assessment" as well
since Chester Finn said even with Department gone, "assessment" was all government needed in order to be in
control... words to that effect. That would solve almost all of our problems since the international school to work
program which is changing our free form of government (freedom depends on economic freedom, not just political)
would be collapsed if USA, no 1. economic partner in global economy, no longer participating, but educating its
students in academics for upward mobility. I believe all good school teachers would support this legislation.
I guess I could go on and on, but I don't want to ruin my day or yours. Am taking my dog for a walk.
23. The Imperialism of Jewish Capital
September 25, 2007
By Henry Makow
published in 1889 "The Red Dragon" by L.B.
Woolfolk suggests to me that British (and American) imperialism originated in the need of Jewish bankers
and their Gentile confederates to translate money they could create out of nothing (thanks to their control of
credit), into real wealth (i.e. world ownership.)
The book confirms my assertion that "the Jewish Conspiracy is British Imperialism." (May 2004)
When these bankers finagled
a credit monopoly in England in 1694,
they turned into a monster that now has highjacked
humanity. The London-based banking cartel literally has
gobbled up the planet, and will not be content until it owns everything, and enslaves mankind, mentally
and spiritually, if not physically. This, in a nutshell, is the New World Order. [Nazarene Remnant
comment: It is high time we stop referring to the Nazi
Fourth Reich as the New World Order.]
The last push came from a secret
society Cecil Rhodes started in 1891 to "absorb the wealth of the world" and "to take the
government of the whole world."
A recent UN
study says 2% of the world's population own 50% of the wealth, while half own barely 1% of the
wealth. Needless to say, the richest 2% are mainly the London-based bankers and people associated with them.
Today British, American and Zionist imperialism
manifest the banker agenda for "world government" through the destruction of religion, nation, race and family.
This imperialism does not express the interests or wishes of ordinary English, American or Jewish people who are
being colonized themselves.
THE RED DRAGON
L.B. Woolfolk was an American Baptist preacher who traced the machinations of the banking cartel in the decades
after the Civil War. He confirmed his assertions by contacts with members of this cartel during visits to
London . He says "the Great Red Dragon" is the symbol of the "Jew London Money Power."
book, which is on line, he describes how this cartel bought up the US economy through
intermediaries, and controlled it long before the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913.
By 1864, almost 150 years
ago, Woolfolk claims the wealth of the world already was concentrated in their hands.
"The Imperialism of
Capital to which I allude is a knot of capitalists—Jews almost to a man—who make their headquarters in the
Money Quarter of London, in Threadneedle street, Lombard, and other streets in that vicinity, where bankers have
their habitat. These Jew capitalists have succeeded in centralizing in their own hands the industry and commerce of
the earth. —They own almost all the debts of the
world, —the debts of nations, states, counties, municipalities, corporations and individuals, —amounting
in the aggregate, it is estimated, to seventy-five billion dollars, on which they are annually receiving about four
billion dollars of interest. —They own the manufactories, the shipping, and the commerce of Great Britain, and most
of the manufactures, shipping and commerce of the whole world. —They have attained control of the industry and
trade of the whole earth;and are rapidly
centralizing all business in their own hands. They hold possession of all the great lines of trade and
business of all kinds, and they regulate all prices by their own arbitrary methods. This Money Power of the Money
Quarter of London is the only grand pre-eminent Imperialism existing on the
Woolfolk traces the beginnings of this cartel to the
East India Company in the early part of the Eighteenth Century.
"In 1764, the
British East India Company was the grandest and richest corporation in the world. It was the only corporation,
which ruled a territorial empire. It was enriched by traffic, by the extension of its trade through the conquest of
the trading stations of its Continental rivals and by the wholesale plunder of India....it came to pass that
the greater part of the stock of the East India Company, and of the other companies afterwards organized out of the
dividends of that great company, fell into the
hands of the Jews. The Jews became the great Money Kings of the world.... History presents no career of
conquest, in which fraud, deceit and rapine were so blended as in the conquest of India by the East India Company.
It was the first example in the history of the world of a trading corporation becoming an imperial power; and its
imperial rule was marked by the rapacity, chicane and fraud that characterize a great corporation in the soulless
and conscienceless pursuit of gain."
With the invention of the steam engine in 1775, only
the capitalists of the British East India Company had the means to profit from the industrial revolution. They set
up hundreds of joint stock companies—manufacturing companies of all kinds, coal and iron mining, railways and
ships, real estate-- which
concealed their ownership.

24. Is the Devil in the New World Order?
Is the Devil in the New World
Most people are not aware of the Luciferic connection.
By Ken Raggio
“...and the dragon gave him his power,
seat, and great authority,” (Revelation
The devil is in the details -
literally. Satan himself drives this
new world government. (Note: Although a dragon is the modern symbol of China, the Bible clearly says that the
dragon mentioned here is the Devil - "He laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and
Satan," Revelation 20:2, also 12:9).
peopleeither refuse to
believe or don't WANT to believe that God or Satan are real forces in the
world today. This article will show you, in hard facts, that they ARE. I am not suggesting
that people are atheists. People definitely believe in spirits, but they do not accept truly Biblical
concepts or teachings about God and devils. Spiritualism has never had more practitioners. But in that
reality lies a great and universal error.
Neo-paganism is a more accurate term to
apply to popular religion today. Modern society demonstrates that it is possible to have a keen sensitivity to the
spirit world and yet know NOTHING about the true and living God.
It is up to Bible believers to emphatically assert the TRUTH that is revealed in the Bible - which, in its original
language, is the infallible Word of God.
Let's take a few moments to review some basic but extremely critical assertions of Bible prophecy.
Lucifer and Jesus Christ are the two major forces in world events.
Lucifer is the principal spiritual force for evil in the
world today. He is the driving force in the New World Order. This is verifiable. There are any
number of key personalities in the New World Order that are dramatically and explicitly linked to Luciferian
doctrines and practices.
(For an in-depth study of the Biblical character of Lucifer, and his ambitions, please study my online article,
"Satan’s Doom" at www.kenraggio.com.)
Rooted in ancient beliefs tracing back as far as Nimrod at the Tower of Babel, a vast procession of empire builders have marched across the
centuries in defiance of the Kingdom of God, and in deference to the earthly kingdoms of men and devils.
NONE of these empires have worked independently of Satan's evil princes. EVERY society is influenced by a demon prince. The
scriptures prove this. For further explanation, see my articles, The Nature of the Battle, SPIRITS!, Spiritualism, and Spiritual Warfare
In these last prophetic days, some of these principalities are fulfilling major prophetic roles. Most of them have
been at work for centuries to bring about the destruction of civilization as we know it, in order that they may
have complete possession of the world.
The reason I make that statement, is because the Bible is perfectly clear to tell us that before Jesus Christ
returns to the earth at Armageddon, several international
events must take place, and several political alliances and coalitions must be created. NOTHING can prevent these eventualities. They WILL occur!
If we follow the scripture closely, then follow the daily news, we can plainly observe these fulfillments.
I have traced back hundreds of years to identify the major
spirits of the past two thousand years, and attempt to show how they have brought us to our present
dilemma. If you will be patient, these explanations will astonish you.

Hard Facts About
27. ECHELON: The Global Eavesdropping
Dwarfs Murdoch's "News of the
By Sherwood Ross
As eavesdroppers go, next to Uncle Sam and John Bull, Rupert Murdoch, the moral force
behind Fox News, is an amateur.
That's because a global eavesdropping scheme being run today by the United States and
Great Britain dwarfs anything that Rupert Murdoch's editors at The News of The World (TNTW) ever dared
British Prime Minister David Cameron may well deny he knew TNTW was tapping the phones
of members of UK's Royal household or those of American 9/11 victims. But he can't claim he doesn't know his
country is a partner in ECHELON, which, according to Washington journalist Bill Blum, is a "network of
massive, highly automated interception stations" that is eavesdropping on the entire world.
"Like a mammoth vacuum cleaner in the sky, the National Security Agency (NSA) sucks it
all up: home phone, office phone, cellular phone, email, fax, telex...satellite transmissions, fiber-optic
communications traffic, microwave links, voice, text images (that are) captured by satellites continuously
orbiting the earth and then processed by high-powered computers," Blum writes in his book "Rogue State"
(Common Courage Press).
Calling it the greatest invasion of privacy ever, Blum says the ceaseless, illegal spy
system sucks up perhaps billions of messages daily, including those of prime ministers, the Secretary-General
of the UN, the pope, embassies, Amnesty International, Christian Aid, and transnational corporations and that
"if God has a phone, it's being monitored."
Blum also said that during the countdown to its invasion of Iraq in 2003, the U.S.
listened in on the conversations of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the UN weapons inspectors in Iraq, "and
all the members of the UN Security Council...when they were deliberating about what action to take in
Launched in the 1970s to spy on Soviet satellite communications, the NSA and its junior
partners in Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand operate ECHELON, which is a network of massive,
highly automated interception stations covering the globe at the expense of American
Today, Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour opposition, is blasting PM Cameron on grounds
that, according to The New York Times of July 19, "the recent scandals in British life were caused by a lack
of accountability among those in high places." Across Britain, Miliband said, "there is a yearning for a more
decent, responsible, principled country."
What makes the British public recoil is the sort of conduct by former TNTW reporter
Clive Goodman, who pleaded guilty in Jan., 2007, to hacking the voice mails of aides to the royal
Pardon me, but how does that crime begin to compare with ECHELON, an organ of the U.S.
Government, spying on the Secretary-General of the United Nations or the Pope? Or stealing, as it has,
confidential business information and passing it along to favored firms?
I'll say this for Mr. Murdoch: he's closed down his biggest newspaper; he's fired top
editors and reporters for their part in the scandals. He's gone before the public and begged forgiveness. By
contrast, what have high U.S. officials done about the crimes committed via ECHELON? Zip, and they have no
announced plans to do so. They continue to operate ECHELON unashamedly.
Rupert Murdoch's TNTW was only attempting to do in a small way what the governments of
the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are doing big time every day. ECHELON is a criminal
operation in violation of international law and terminating it might make America, too, "a more decent,
responsible, principled country." #

NATO is said to be coming to the rescue of the Libyan people. That is what we are being told.
Western journalists have quite deliberately distorted what is happening inside Libya. They have
upheld NATO as an instrument of peace and democratization.
They have endorsed an illegal and criminal war.
They are instruments of US-NATO propaganda.

29. NATO will be Defeated in
The Libyan Resistance Movement. A Defining Moment for
By Gerald A. Perreira
July 14, 2011
The argument in Libya has been won by the Al Fateh revolution. There is now a glaring
truth confronting the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO) – Muammar Qaddafi has handed out
over one million kalashnikovs to the Libyan
people. If he was the brutal dictator that NATO would have us believe him to be, then the armed
population could have turned their guns on him and the revolutionary armed forces by now, especially as they would
have NATO’s full backing if they did so.
Instead, on July 1st, more than a million Libyans, were in Green Square and the
surrounding streets, to hear Muammar Qaddafi speak and to rally against NATO.
Chinese media put the number at 1.7 million and Intifada – Voice of Palestine website
called it ‘the largest demonstration ever in world history’.
The crowd chanted over and over again ‘We want Qaddafi’ while unveiling a green flag 6 kilometers
The Al Fateh revolution has given the Libyan people a taste of the dignity that comes with
true independence and real sovereignty.
Unlike so many ‘Third World’ nation-states, Libya, under the leadership of Muammar Qaddafi, has
been a surrogate of neither the East nor the West. The first thing that hits you when you step off the plane at
Tripoli International Airport is that Libyans are firmly in control of their country. Libya is a power unto herself
and Libyans are not taking kindly to NATO’s attempts at re-colonization.
What has developed in Libya is a conundrum for NATO. They may have imagined that with such vicious
ongoing bombing raids, Qaddafi’s forces would have crumbled.
Instead, they have witnessed the opposite. In the face of this all out aggression, over 10,000
bombing raids and into its fifth month, the Libyan patriotic and revolutionary armed forces and the vast majority
of Libyans have remained steadfast and loyal, defending their revolution and its leader.
There are even pro-Qaddafi rallies in Benghazi, and constant gun battles between pro-Qaddafi forces
and the rebels in Benghazi and Misurata. In villages and towns, reportedly under rebel control, the green flag of
the Al Fateh revolution can be seen flying from homes and public buildings. One thing is clear, if Qaddafi did not
have mass support he could not be resisting this barbaric onslaught so effectively.
Every day the rebels reveal themselves to be mere surrogates of an imperialist plot to overthrow
the Libyan revolution. They cannot call for health-care, housing, free education, subsidized food and a share in
the oil wealth because they have all of that.
Residents in areas where the NATO backed rebels are in control, have reported that the rebels are
looting stores and removing goods and food at gunpoint. There are also numerous reports of torture, rape and
execution of captured pro-Qaddafi soldiers, Black Libyans and migrant workers from neighboring African
The nature of the Benghazi rebels is best illustrated by events that occurred after rebels took
control of the mountain village of Qawalish in Western Libya. Many of the villagers were forced to evacuate the
area since, according to a report carried on July 10th, in the New York Times:
“All of the shops in the town had been ransacked, several homes were burned, and the town’s
gas station, in fine condition when Qawalish fell, had been vandalized to the point of being dismantled. In
building after building furniture was flipped over, dishes and mirrors shattered, and everything torn apart. Except
for a few rebels roaming the streets in cars and trucks, the town was deserted – a shattered, emptied ghost town
decorated with broken glass.”
There is no doubt that ‘the Coalition of Demons’, as Minister Louis Farrakhan has called them, has
realized their grave mistake – if not out in the open, certainly behind closed doors. Having finally understood
that the Benghazi rebels are not now, nor would they ever be in a position to take power in Libya, the ‘Coalition
of Demons’ is crumbling, with major differences surfacing amongst members on how to proceed with this ill-fated
After spending billions of dollars at a time when their economies are in deep crisis and reeling
from the cost of years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Europe and the US are now scrambling for a solution which
will allow them to save face.
The French, who were the driving force behind the invasion of Libya, are now pressing for dialogue
with Tripoli. On July 11th, in a report carried in Flash News Today, French Defense Minister, Gerard Longuet
stated: “We’ll stop the bombing when the Libyans talk to each other and the military forces on all sides return to
their barracks. They can talk to each other because we provide the proof that there is no solution by force”.
I wonder sometimes if these people actually hear themselves. No matter what disdainful spin Gerard
Longuet tries to put on the situation, he can never convince us that the purpose of this mission was an exercise to
prove that this conflict could not be resolved by force.
The truth is that the French, British and Americans, in their arrogance and ignorance, believed
that toppling Qaddafi and rolling back the Libyan revolution would be a push over and now they are trying
everything to avoid admitting an all out defeat.
In addition to the death and destruction caused by this French, British and US barbaric
adventurism, an estimated 150,000 people have been forced to flee Libya, many of them African migrant workers.
These refugees, who were working in Libya and supporting their families in other parts of Africa, now find
themselves sleeping in parks in Italy and France.
With an estimated 23 million men and women unemployed in Europe, a figure that is expected to
increase in the coming months as the capitalist crisis deepens, the situation for these refugees is disastrous.
NATO picked on a country that has experienced a profound political and social revolution for the
past 40 plus years. The majority of Libyans only know life in the Jamahiriya and have lived in its dignity, comfort
and calm all their lives, causing many of them to perhaps become complacent, taking much of what they had for
However, there is no doubt that their revolutionary spirit has been reignited by NATO’s bombs and
they are standing behind the Al Fateh revolution. As one female student from Al Fateh University put it, “Libya is
our mother and Qaddafi is our father.”
NATO – North Atlantic Terrorist
NATO is a terrorist organization. Originally created to check the spread of Soviet Communism into
Western Europe, this European organization has now reinvented itself as an enforcer and defender of White
supremacy. On a global crusade, NATO brutally enforces neo-colonialism worldwide under the guise of ‘spreading
democracy’ and ‘humanitarian intervention’.
Since the onset of colonialism, hundreds of years ago, West Europeans have carried out a policy of
genocide and plunder throughout the world. NATO comprises these same old tribes of Europe organized under a modern
The number of Iraqis slaughtered in the ongoing US war and occupation of Iraq – now in its ninth
year, is estimated at 1,455,590, let alone the numbers murdered in Afghanistan, Somalia, Cote d’Ivoire and
conflicts all over the world – set in motion either covertly or overtly by these terrorists. No people in the
entire history of humanity have made war on all peoples and murdered more people than these North Atlantic Tribes.
This is an historical fact.
Qaddafi – African Hero
Only leaders who are determined to live for their people are prepared to die for their people.
Young Libyans from the Student Revolutionary Committees in the streets of Tripoli chant ‘Allah, Qaddafi, Libya’.
The overwhelming majority of Libyans – young and old – love him. And then there is the massive outpouring of love
and support that has come from every corner of the globe, where people, organizations and liberation movements, all
of whom have received assistance from him at one time or other, have raised their voices against NATO’s unprovoked
But nowhere is Qaddafi loved more than in Africa. His genuine commitment to our liberation is known
to all Africans. African youth support his vision. Rappers have called him ‘African Hero’.
Tuaregs and freedom fighters from all over the continent have joined with the Libyan people to
defend Tripoli. The Pan-African movement has been re-energized. It is no accident that it took an attack on the man
who said ‘The Black race shall prevail throughout the world’, to galvanize the movement which is capable of
bringing about the dream of Garvey and Nkrumah, a dream which Muammar Qaddafi has pursued at his own peril.
Tingba Muhammad, in an excellent article in The Final Call, made the following
“Since he came to leadership in that oil-rich nation in 1969, Col. Qaddafi has amassed a
record of accomplishment for Black Africa unmatched in modern history. Using his nation’s oil revenues, he has set
the exploited former Italian colony firmly on the road to true independence… those who take the time to look past
the litany of white lies about Qaddafi will be introduced to a man whose progressive record of accomplishments very
well may be unmatched by ANYONE who has ever led a nation in modern times. And this is not hyperbole! We will take
it further: If this man—Muammar Qaddafi—ever ran for president of America with a résumé like his, we dare say EVERY
American would not only vote for him, but would angrily trash the 22nd amendment to the Constitution to allow him
to serve forever!”
‘Wathint Abafazi Wathint Imbokotho’ – ‘You Strike a Woman, You Strike a Rock’
The women of Libya are taking a leading role in defending the gains of the revolution. Under the
leadership of Muammar Qaddafi they have been able to realize their own emancipation, which is uniquely Libyan and
not based on the Eurocentric notions of Western feminism.
They are amongst the most highly educated female population in Africa and the Arab world. They are
free to dress with or without the headscarf, because Qaddafi understands that Islam cannot be enforced by a ‘moral
police force’, harassing and beating people in the streets for not dressing in hijab and not praying on time.
Adhering to the edict articulated by Prophet Muhammad, stating that ‘there can be no compulsion in
religion’, Qaddafi knows that the only way forward is to raise the consciousness of the people.
What protects the Islamic tradition and way of life in Libya is that their very liberation is
derived from the true emancipatory spirit of Islam. They have been able to hold onto their traditions, while
shedding the reactionary pre-Islamic residue that permeates so much of the Muslim world. No one is clearer than the
women of Libya about what to expect from the backward, al-Qaeda inspired Benghazi counter-revolutionaries, and they
are having none of it.
Sarkozy – the Wicked Pied Piper
NATO is arming and fighting alongside al Qaeda in Libya after telling the world for years that al
Qaeda is the single largest threat to their national security.
At the same time, they continue to claim that they are fighting al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Iraq,
Pakistan and Somalia. This might seem like a contradictory and confused foreign policy however, it is classical
Machiavellian policy at play and nobody plays Machiavellian politics better than Europeans.
War criminal, Henry Kissinger, summed it up many years ago when he said: “We do not have permanent
friends or permanent enemies – we only have permanent interests.”
Obama, Cameron, Berlusconi and other European leaders were led on a merry dance by French president
and white supremacist, Sarkozy.
His real reason for France’s frantic move against Libya was his government’s embarrassing failure
to save their minion, Zinedine Ben Ali in Tunisia, in an election year. We know this man Sarkozy by his actions and
his words. He is on record as saying, in true Hegelian spirit, that:
“The tragedy of Africa is that the African man has never really entered history. The African
peasant has known only the eternal renewal of time via the endless repetition of the same actions and the same
words. In this mentality, where everything always starts over again, there is no place for human adventure or for
any idea of progress.” He added: “Africa’s problem is that its present is permeated with nostalgia for the paradise
of its lost childhood….”
They call it Democracy – we know it as
Muammar Qaddafi has handed out kalashnikovs to an entire people. Libya is one of maybe only two
countries in the world – the other being Cuba – that could arm their people under these circumstances. Why?
Could Sarkozy, Cameron, Obama, or for that matter the Sheikdoms in the Arab world who have lined up
against Qaddafi, hand out kalashnikovs like pancakes to their populace under the same circumstances? I think
In fact, in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia was called on to invade and brutally suppress the rebellion. The
Bahraini ruling family is certainly not arming the people.
When the Saudis brutally suppressed the uprising in Bahrain, not a word was uttered from the
‘international community’ – international community being a euphemism for the US and Western Europe. And if a few
words were uttered by Hillary Clinton, it was done for the sake of protocol and meant nothing.
Kwame Ture Speaks
The great Pan-African revolutionary, Kwame Ture, was a frequent visitor to Libya. He was a member
of the World Mathaba based in Tripoli and a vocal supporter of the Al Fateh revolution. He led a worldwide campaign
to break the unjust sanctions placed on Libya in the 90s and worked tirelessly to promote Nkrumah and Qaddafi’s
vision of a united and truly independent Africa.
He made an interesting point about the double standards that the West applied when dealing with
Africa, which is particularly relevant to what is happening in Libya today.
He observed that when sections of society in Europe or the United States disagree, even violently
disagree, it is called pluralism and this is said to be a vital ingredient of their democracy.
It is never said that the US is undemocratic because they disagree–on the contrary it is, according
to them, what makes it democratic. Our people on the other hand are not allowed to have differences or
disagreements. When we do, it is called disunity and dissent, never pluralism.
When revolutionary leaders defend their revolutions against counter-revolutionary uprisings they
are called brutal dictators. The contradiction is that throughout the history of the United States, any uprising
against America’s injustice has always been suppressed violently, and Kwame would remind us that he was one that
knew this from personal experience.
The Libyan rebels make up an estimated 2 percent of the entire Libyan population. What is the
percentage of people who disagreed with George W. Bush or who now disagree with Barak Obama? In fact, Bush only
received 50.7 percent of the US citizens’ vote and Obama only 52.9 percent. There is a great deal of dissent
In the Green Book, Muammar Qaddafi has this to say:
“Political struggle which culminates in the victory of a candidate obtaining 51 percent of the
total votes of the electorate, establishes a dictatorship in the seat of power garbed in the guise of democracy. It
is in fact, a dictatorship because 49 percent of the electorate would then be governed by an instrument of
government they did not vote for, and which has been imposed upon them. This is the essence of dictatorship…under
such systems the people are the victims whose votes are vied for by exploitative competing factions, who dupe the
people into political circuses that are outwardly noisy and frantic, but inwardly powerless and irrelevant.”
Let us put one fallacy to rest forever – Europeans do not have a monopoly on the theory and
practice of democracy. It is not my intention here to enter into what is a huge discussion of what constitutes
democracy. Suffice to say, that Western Europe and the US, which continue to this day to brutally enforce their
undemocratic systems of colonialism, neo-colonialism and capitalism worldwide, are not in either a moral or
historical position to lecture the world on what is or is not democratic.
Those who promote democracy, European and US style, must be aware that the Fathers of the American
revolution excluded the indigenous peoples and the captured Africans from their ‘democratic’ project. Same with the
French revolutionaries, who in 1789 were proclaiming ‘liberty, equality and fraternity’, but were not prepared to
extend these principles to the captured Africans working their plantations in the Caribbean.
However fallacious the Western notion of democracy may be, the only thing that matters from an
African perspective is that the West is prevented from continuing to impose this fallacious notion on us. They can,
as far as we are concerned, have whatever political system they choose. The point is, so can we as Africans. This
is what we are fighting for – our inalienable right to self-determination – to freely decide our own destiny.
That is what it means to finally throw off the yoke of colonialism and imperialism, and that is
what Libya dared to do under the leadership of Muammar Qaddafi. And Qaddafi dared to extend this vision to the
entire African continent.
In the words of the Afrocentric intellectual warrior, Dr Molefi Kete Asante:
“The work of the Brother Leader, as he is sometimes called, has been to raise African consciousness
to the point that some of the nations on the continent of Africa begin to reject the loyalty they hold for their
colonial masters…Qaddafi has proposed that Africa do away with travel restrictions, create a common currency and
ease trade tariffs and barriers. This African solidarity is not only a threat to the West – some who identify as
Arabs have a difficult time accepting the Africanity promoted by Qaddafi.”
The battle for African self-determination did not start in Libya or with Qaddafi – it is a very
long battle stretching back to the earliest incursions into Africa. And it is not the first time that Africans have
faced such a sophisticated and deadly European attack – we can look way back at the battle of Isandlwana in 1879,
where the arrogant British army, one of the most technologically advanced in the world at that time, was humbled by
the Zulu fighters under the leadership of the great African king, Cetshwayo.
What this ‘Coalition of Demons’ currently attacking Libya, armed with the most sophisticated
weaponry known to humankind, is slowly coming to realize, is that they could well be defeated by the will of the
Libyan people armed with their faith, revolutionary consciousness and kalashnikovs.
Fear of a Black
‘Up you mighty race, you can accomplish what you will’ – Marcus Garvey
‘The Black race shall prevail throughout the world’ – Muammar Qaddafi
This is a defining moment for Africa and Africans all over the world. It is a moment in history
that we must seize.
Africans on the continent and throughout the Diaspora were recently given a tiny glimpse of the
kind of power that Africa can possess, when Jean Ping, speaking on behalf of the African Union, directed all member
states to ignore the ICC’s (International Colonial Court) call for Qaddafi’s arrest. Jean Ping stated that “the ICC
is discriminatory because it only pursues Africans. The Hague-based court ignores crimes committed by Western
powers in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan”. Thank you, Jean Ping.
However, it is the African youth on the continent and in the Diaspora that are leading and
inspiring us towards true independence. Tendai Wenyika, Deputy General Secretary of the Pan-African Youth Union,
addressing the recent AU Heads of State summit in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea called on African leaders to:
“demand the arrest of the likes of Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy, who through their unprovoked war
have violated the supreme tenets of the Nuremburg Principles and committed the crime of all crimes…We call for the
suspension of all engagements with NATO, and Africa must begin to strengthen its internal ties, security and trade
mechanisms in order for us to prosper.”
As I have stated in previous articles, there is nothing that White Power fears more than a united
Africa. They know that a united Africa would completely alter the balance of power globally. The well-documented
fact is that if Africa stopped the flow of all resources and raw materials to the Western nations for just one
week, the United States and Europe would grind to a halt.
In 2007, in Conakry Guinea, Qaddafi made a simple observation to a cheering crowd of thousands:
“Whenever I ask people about Pepsi-Cola and Coca-Cola people immediately say it’s an American or
European drink. This is not true. The kola is African. They have taken the cheap raw material from us, they’ve made
it into a drink, and they sell it back to us for a high price. We should be producing it ourselves and selling it
If only Africa could realize its immense power. Realizing this power is primarily a psychological
transition, since the material facts are overwhelmingly clear. Almost every known natural resource needed to run
the contemporary industrial economies—such as uranium, gold, copper, cobalt, coltan (for cell phones, video games,
laptops), platinum, diamonds, bauxite, and especially large reserves of oil are located in Africa. Azania (South
Africa) alone contains half the world’s gold reserves. Democratic Republic of Congo contains half of the world’s
cobalt and 80 percent of the world’s known coltan reserves. One quarter of the world’s aluminum ore is found in the
coastal belt of West Africa and the continent is awash in petroleum reserves.
Time for ‘us’ to put sanctions on ‘them’
It is time to stop the flow of these strategic resources to the Western capitals until they meet
our demands. Yes, it is time for us to sanction the Western capitals. The Global Pan-African Movement and the
African masses are crying out for it – the time is now. Africans everywhere must exert maximum pressure on their
leaders to realize this power, as Muammar Qaddafi dared to, or move aside.
But how would we survive if we were to sanction these Western capitals? I can hear the detractors
cry. Answer: there are huge emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil who will be only too happy to pick
up the slack.
Already this is the West’s greatest fear: In an article titled, ‘Wen calls for more Access for
Africa’, which appeared in 2007 in the Financial Times, W. Wallis and G. Dyer, wrote:
“Western powers real concern is that African States will opt for Chinese deals to free themselves
from the punitive conditions of IMF/ World Bank loans and other forms of financial dependence on Europe and the
Unites States. As the second largest source of oil in Africa, Angola is now in such a strong position that it is
rejecting IMF loans completely. As one consultant put it, with all their oil revenue, they don’t need the IMF or
the World Bank. They can play the Chinese off the Americans.”
In another article, ‘China and the USA in a new cold war over Africa’s oil riches: Darfur? It’s the
oil, stupid…’ William Engdahl points out:
“Today China draws an estimated 30% of its crude oil from Africa. That explains an extraordinary
series of diplomatic initiatives which have left Washington furious. China is using no-strings-attached dollar
credits to gain access to Africa’s vast raw material wealth, leaving Washington’s typical control game via the
World Bank and IMF out in the cold. Who needs the painful medicine of the IMF when China gives easy terms and
builds roads and schools to boot?”
What does all this mean for Africa? Quite simply it means that we now have a choice in trading
partners, and although all trading partners drive a hard bargain – some are giving better deals than others.
Black Power – African Power!
This is the moment to put all our efforts into the realization of Nkrumah and Qaddafi’s grand plan
for a United States of Africa. A strong and truly independent Africa, with one government, one defense force and
one currency based on our African gold standard as Qaddafi has proposed. Only when we can achieve this level of
unity and power, will we be able to take our rightful place in the world. Only then can we say that the time is
finally over when Africa must run from one power broker to another to do our bidding. At last we will be able to do
our own bidding on our own terms. Backed by a population of 1 billion people, Africa will then be able to make
demands that cannot be ignored.
In 2009, at a meeting of the AU in Addis Ababa, Qaddafi, commenting on European and US attitudes to
Africa, had this to say: ‘If they do not want to live with us fairly, then they should know it is our planet and
they can go to another planet.’
Fair and just is all we are seeking – only the unfair and unjust have anything to fear from a Black

30. 10 Most Influential People in the
Alternative Media-2011 Version
Many readers will expect to see Matt Drudge or Arianna
Huffington on this list. Although they both indeed have leading Internet news websites that cover
some fringe stories and report on systematic injustices more so than the mainstream media, they primarily aggregate
mainline news. Therefore, they are excluded from our "alternative media" label.
The criteria we've chosen to base these rankings of the most influential alternative media figures
are the following:
||people that have the
courage to seek the truth no matter where the information
||those with the
courage to question 9/11;
don't buy into the false left-right political
||those who are
grounded in peace and liberty;
||those with the
communication skills and platform to affect real
Significantly, each of the people who made our list is clearly driven by unyielding passion.
Despite some natural disagreements, they each provide a unique bridge to forbidden knowledge and they all deserve
high praise for their efforts and commitment to inform the public. Sincerely, it is very encouraging to have so
many talented voices leading the stampede for truth, liberty, justice, and peace.
With so many people doing great work in the real alternative media, we are sure that some deserving
reporters will be left off the list. Although Activist Post has forged relationships with some of the people on
this list, we've tried to remain as non-biased as possible in our observations. At the end, we've also included a
list of those who deserve honorable mention for their tireless work and talent providing the truth.
10. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:
Paul Craig Roberts is one of the most respected columnists in the alternative media. His syndicated articles can be
seen on many leading alternative news websites including Lew Rockwell, Infowars, Counterpunch,
InformationClearingHouse and countless others. Roberts scores huge points in the credibility department
having been the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury under Reagan, and the editor of the Wall
Street Journal -- among a long list of other accolades. His research is impeccable and his vision of how
the world really operates is second to none. He knows why and when the global chess pieces are moving, and has the
incredible talent to communicate difficult concepts to the general public. He has written several books including
The Tyranny of Good Intentions , and How the Economy was Lost . His many interviews can
be seen on Russia Today and Prison Planet TV. Roberts is also a recent contributor to Gerald
Celente's esteemed Trends Journal. There is no one better at reporting the reality of geo-political
events and the workings of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve.
Many of Paul Craig Roberts' articles are here:
9. Gary Franchi: Franchi is a longtime
researcher and liberty activist. His essays and reports have been published all over the Internet and in the book
Songs of Freedom: Tales From the Revolution . He's also the producer of several documentaries like
Camp FEMA and Don't Tread on Me . Because of his tenacious work, he now has one of the
best alternative media platforms on the Internet. His liberty social network, RTR.org (Restore the
Republic) has over 32,000 members and is growing quickly. The quality of his Reality
Report newscasts rival the multi-million dollar productions at any cable news outfit -- except he reports
TRUTH news. Franchi does an excellent job aggregating the most important stories in the alternative news and
presenting them in a concise and visually appealing newscast. We've found each of Franchi's recent Reality
Reports to be must-see TV, and only expect this up-and-comer's influence to continue to grow.
Gary Franchi's Web site is here:
8. Adam Kokesh: Kokesh is a
former Iraq war veteran turned peace activist, a former Libertarian congressional candidate, and the current host
of Russia Today's Adam Vs. The Man nightly cable TV show. He recently gained recognition when he was brutally
arrested for silently dancing at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial with other activists. The video of the alarming
arrest went absolutely viral and surely brought many new viewers to his TV show and to the truth movement. Kokesh
is well-informed, well-spoken, committed to individual liberty and peace, and has the legitimacy of having served
his country in combat. Kokesh recently received high praise from a fellow journalist who details his appeal here.
Watch for Kokesh's influence to grow as more people become aware that a genuine truther has an entertaining and

10 Most Influential People in the
Alternative Media-2011 Version
31. The Federal Reserve ADMITS that Its 12 Banks Are
PRIVATE - Not Government - Entities
Much of the tens of
trillions in bailout money and "easy" money from quantitative easing went to
foreign banks (and see this,
this and this).
Indeed, Ron Paul noted recently that
one-third of all fed bailout loans - and essentially 100% of loans from the New
York Fed - went to foreign banks.
The New York Fed is the
most important Fed bank. As Bloomberg pointed out in 2009:
“The New York Fed is one of
12 regional Federal Reserve banks and the one charged with monitoring capital markets. It is also
managing $1.7 trillion [now up to at least $1.9 trillion] of emergency lending programs [and accepting
collateral from the banks in return].”
However, the country's most
powerful "agency" - the Federal Reserve - is actually no more federal than Federal
Express. The Fed itself admitted (via Bloomberg):
“While the Fed’s
Washington-based Board of Governors is a federal agency subject to the Freedom of Information Act and other
government rules, the New York Fed and other regional banks maintain they are
separate institutions, owned by their member banks, and not
subject to federal restrictions.”
For that reason, the New
York Fed alleged in the lawsuit brought by Bloomberg to force the Fed to reveal some information about its loans
- Bloomberg LP v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 08-CV-9595, U.S. District Court,
Southern District of New York (Manhattan) - that it was not subject to Federal Freedom of Information Act. As
Bloomberg reported in a
“The Federal Reserve Bank
of New York ... runs most of the lending programs. Most documents relevant to [a freedom of information lawsuit
filed by Bloomberg news] are at the New York Fed, which isn’t subject to FOIA law,
according to the central bank. The Board of Governors has 231 pages of documents, to which it is denying access
under an exemption for trade secrets.”
As the long-time Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee (Charles McFadden) said on June 10,
“Some people think that the
Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies
Similarly, the Bank for
International Settlements (BIS) - often called the "central banks' central bank", as it coordinates transactions
between central banks, and which is the entity determining the
level of reserves banks are required to keep worldwide - is itself owned by the central banks of the world.
As Spiegel reported in 2009:
“The BIS is a closed
organization owned by the 55 central banks. The heads of these central banks travel to the Basel
headquarters once every two months, and the General Meeting, the BIS's supreme executive body, takes place once
In, other words, the
private banks own the Fed (and most other central banks), and the central banks - in turn - own BIS, the global
Interestingly, Spiegel points out that BIS is largely immune from regulation, oversight or taxes:
“Formally registered as a
stock corporation, it is recognized as an international organization and, therefore, is not subject to any
jurisdiction other than international law.
It does not need to pay
tax, and its members and employees enjoy extensive immunity. No other institution regulates the BIS, despite the
fact that it manages about 4 percent of the world's total currency reserves, or €217 trillion ($304 trillion),
as well as 120 tons of gold...
Central bankers are not
elected by the people but are appointed by their governments. Nevertheless, they wield power that exceeds that
of many political leaders. Their decisions affect entire economies, and a single word from their lips is capable
of moving financial markets. They set interest rates, thereby determining the cost of borrowing and the speed of
global financial currents.”
32. Modern Christianity is Designed to
Create Extremely Dissociated People ...
Title: Dissociated State of Mind is Social Necessity
July 26, 2011
"The machine must function without thinking, or individual will, for it to
fulfill its purpose of managing the crowd predictably."
By Kevin D. Annett
I was wondering today why it is that we are all insane.
I paid my way through college by working as an orderly in the campus hospital's nuthouse; and of course later, I
dealt for years with church congregations. So I know a lot
about crazy people, and the societies they create.
Life was oddly familiar on the psych ward, whose inhabitants - whether patients or staff - spun about
themselves a self-sustaining, insular and utterly dissociated little world that, like society at large,
resisted change or even

helped me to understand
institutionalized insanity, and how
convincing it can be.
The day I started working on the chronic ward of the University of British Columbia's psychiatric hospital, the
head nurse was knocked out cold by an enormous guy they'd just carted in from Riverview hospital: high as a kite
and not the kind of gentleman to be told off, like Big Nurse tried doing.
Violence is unusual in a nuthouse, not
simply because everyone is drugged to the nines.
Like in any workplace, everything is so
completely and mind-numbingly routinized that the assembly
line of meds, meals, television and outings leaves no room, or energy, for a completely spontaneous and
willful act like striking out.
So, the reaction of my co-workers to the sight of Big Nurse lying unconscious and bloody on the floor of her
station, as her drooling assailant smiled down at us, was interesting. Nobody moved. The unpredictable had happened.
As I smiled nervously back at the assaulter, I thought at first that our collective numbness arose from fear, and a
natural desire to stay clear of the guy's sizable fists. But then I saw the genuine confusion on everyone's faces.
Nobody had expected this, even
though we had all been trained to expect it.
The procedure had broken down, and without it, we were helpless.
Fortunately, our numbness was dispelled by the arrival of other orderlies from the adjoining ward, who immediately
tackled the guy and shook us back to our senses.
Later that night, scribbling my report of the incident in the duty log, I wrote in the margins,
"The machine must function without thinking, or individual will, for it to
fulfill its purpose of managing the crowd predictably."
Sigmund Freud observed that the natural instincts of any person must be suppressed for society to function as a
mass of managed individuals: a suppression that breeds "civilized" mankind's basic neurotic condition. Society, in short, makes us all crazy: or
more exactly, massively
Hardly accidental, or even merely consequential, our insanity is a necessity. For without being dissociated, we couldn't dwell
for a day in what we call civilization.
Since it's our basic operating principle, let's examine this thing called dissociation.
Don't look to psychology for a definition, since like all sciences, it tends to examine and classify the tiny
scales of a dragon while ignoring the Beast in its totality. We need to know what dissociation means not just for one person but for an entire

As an example, I recently showed a family member hard and incontrovertible proof that her church was responsible
for the death of many thousands of children in their Indian boarding schools. That person acted confused at first,
and eventually acknowledged the truth and expressed her horror. And yet the next Sunday, she attended that same
church and gave her usual offering to sustain it.
Her mind, in effect, was not capable of
integrating a new and unsettling truth. What she knew could not be related to her daily
pattern of life.
Psychology likes to treat such dissociation as some kind of individual mental illness resulting from a trauma. But
any large organization, let alone a compartmentalized, consumptionist society like ours, structurally requires such a
mentality in its workers for the system to function efficiently.
Cohesion rests on the suppression of unpredictable human responses which might threaten the functioning of what is
in effect an enormous machine.
A rational, feeling person who integrates thought and action is potentially unpredictable, and may refuse, for
example, to obey. The machine's operations would then come to a halt. But a person whose senses and thoughts can
never possibly affect his behavior will not threaten the automatic life of the machine. Hierarchy therefore abhors an integrated personality because of its

the neurotic requirements of modern civilization and its organized repression of natural human impulses.
To answer my first question, we are all insane because the God of Commerce needs it that way.

33. Naming Names: Your Real
When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction.
By Tony Cartalucci
This is your real government; they transcend elected administrations, they permeate every
political party, and they are responsible for nearly every aspect of the average American and European's way
of life. When the "left" is carrying the torch for two "Neo-Con" wars, starting yet another based on the same
lies, peddled by the same media outlets that told of Iraqi WMD's, the world has no choice, beyond profound
cognitive dissonance, but to realize something is wrong.
What's wrong is a system completely controlled by a corporate-financier oligarchy with financial, media, and
industrial empires that span the globe. If we do not change the fact that we are helplessly dependent on these
corporations that regulate every aspect of our nation politically, and every aspect of our lives personally,
nothing else will ever change.
The following list, however extensive, is by far not all-inclusive. However after these examples, a pattern should
become self-evident with the same names and corporations being listed again and again. It should be self-evident to
readers of how dangerously pervasive these corporations have become in our daily lives. Finally, it should be
self-evident as to how necessary it is to excise these corporations from our lives, our communities, and ultimately
our nations, with the utmost expediency.
International Crisis Group
Background: While the International Crisis Group (ICG) claims to be "committed to preventing and resolving
deadly conflict," the reality is that they are committed to offering solutions crafted well in advance to problems
they themselves have created in order to perpetuate their own corporate agenda.
Nowhere can this be better illustrated than in Thailand and more recently in Egypt. ICG member Kenneth Adelman had been backing Thailand's Prime Minster
Thaksin Shinwatra, a former Carlyle Group adviser who was was literally
standing in front of the CFR in NYC on the eve of his ousting from power in a 2006 military coup. Since 2006,
Thaksin's meddling in Thailand has been propped up by fellow Carlyle man James Baker and his Baker Botts law firm, Belfer Center adviser
Robert Blackwill of Barbour Griffith & Rogers, and now Robert Amsterdam's Amsterdam & Peroff, a major corporate member of
the globalist Chatham House.
With Thailand now mired in political turmoil led by Thaksin Shinwatra and his "red shirt" color revolution, the ICG
is ready with "solutions" in hand. These solutions
generally involve tying the Thai government's hands with arguments that stopping Thaksin's subversive activities
amounts to human rights abuses, in hopes of allowing the globalist-backed revolution
to swell beyond control.
The unrest in Egypt, of course, was led entirely by ICG member Mohamed ElBaradei
and his US State
Department recruited, funded, and supported April 6 Youth Movement coordinated by Google's Wael Ghonim. While the
unrest was portrayed as being spontaneous, fueled by the earlier Tunisian uprising, ICG's ElBaradei, Ghonim, and
their youth movement had been in Egypt since 2010 assembling their "National Front for Change"
and laying the groundwork
for the January 25th 2011 uprising.
ICG's George Soros would then go on to fund Egyptian NGOs
working to rewrite the Egyptian constitution after front-man ElBaradei succeeded in removing Hosni Mubarak. This
Soros-funded constitution and the resulting servile stooge government it would create represents the ICG
"resolving" the crisis their own ElBaradei helped create.

The Chatham House
Background & Membership: The UK's Chatham House, like the CFR and the Brookings Institute in America,
has an extensive membership and is involved in coordinated planning, perception management, and the execution of
its corporate membership's collective agenda.
Individual members populating its "senior panel of
advisers" consist of the founders, CEOs, and chairmen of the Chatham House's corporate membership. Chatham's
"experts" are generally plucked from the world of
academia and their "recent publications" are generally used internally as well as published throughout Chatham's
extensive list of member media corporations, as well as industry journals and medical journals. That Chatham House
"experts" are submitting entries to medical journals is particularly alarming considering GlaxoSmithKline and Merck
are both Chatham House corporate members.
No better example of this incredible conflict of interest can be given than the current Thai "red" color revolution
being led by Chatham House's Amsterdam & Peroff with consistent support lent by other corporate members
including the Economist, the Telegraph and the BBC.
In one case, the Telegraph printed, "
Thai protests - analysis by Dr Gareth Price and Rosheen Kabraji," within which Price and Kabraji make a
shameless attempt at defending the Western-backed, Maoist themed,
violent protests. While the Telegraph mentioned that Price and Kabraji were both analysts for the Chatham
House, they failed to tell readers that the Telegraph itself retains a corporate membership within the Chatham
House as does the Thai protest leader's lobbyist, Robert Amsterdam and his
Amsterdam & Peroff lobbying firm.

is more revolutionary and constructive
than burning down your own city and killing security forces.
As Washington plunges the Middle East and North Africa into chaos, and city by city collapses into the hands of
globalist stooges, many have mistakenly interpreted this "change" as a positive transformation.
On the contrary, the regimes that will replace the embattled nationalistic dictators in each nation the globalists
despoil will interface not with the national governments in the service of their people, but will interface with
the "civil society" underlay the Western backed NGOs have meticulously built up over decades. This "civil society"
will in turn answer to corporate serving globalist institutions, like the IMF, WTO, World Bank and the UN,
We have been given a prepackaged ideal of what "revolution" is supposed
to look like. So when we see people in the streets battling security forces, waving flags, all
within the backdrop of their burning society, we are satisfied that "revolution" is taking place. But the reality
is, this is not a revolution by any stretch of the imagination. It is a high-tech, high-speed invasion and
subjugation, a corruption of the sovereign state similar to what Tacitus described in Roman conquered
'His object was to accustom them to a life of peace and quiet by the provision of amenities. He therefore gave
official assistance to the building of temples, public squares and good houses. He educated the sons of the chiefs
in the liberal arts, and expressed a preference for British ability as compared to the trained skills of the Gauls.
The result was that instead of loathing the Latin language they became eager to speak it effectively. In the same
way, our national dress came into favour and the toga was everywhere to be seen. And so the population was

As we can see, "civil society" is not a new idea, nor is the concept of lulling a population into decadence and
complacency while rolling them into a corrupt, exploitative domineering empire.
Real revolution will take place when people realize what indeed is really happening, who is behind it, and then no
longer paying into their corrupt system. This translates into boycotting the corporate combines behind the very
policies we deplore, and replacing "their" system that benefits only them, with our own system that solely benefits

Some may be skeptical of whether or not boycotting and replacing the elitist system that currently domineers
mankind is even possible, however it is already taking place. The alternative media is one such example, where
people fed up with being lied to by obnoxious propagandists have decided to turn off the TV and report the news
themselves. It has become a self-sustaining industry with exponential growth, where reputation and accuracy is
replacing the slick graphics and 500 dollar suits that used to represent "legitimacy."
The alternative media offers people accurate information. Accurate information is essential when making life
decisions. Hearing the truth allows us to make decisions that benefit ourselves and our community. This stands
contra to the current corporate owned media who would have us living our lives to benefit their shareholders, even
to our own detriment.
We can and we must translate the success of the alternate media to all aspects of our life. The globalists have

with our own local system, where would the globalists get their manpower? Their money? Their legitimacy?
They need us, we don’t need them. That’s the big secret. We get our freedom back as soon as we take back our
responsibilities for food, water, security, the monetary system, power, and manufacturing; that is independence.
Independence is freedom, freedom is independence. We’ll never be free as long as we depend on the Fortune 500 for
Fixing these problems unfolding overseas starts with fixing the problems in our own backyards. Boycott the
globalists, cut off their support, undermine their system, and they lose their ability to commit these atrocities.
That will be a real revolution and it can start today. Not burning cities and masked rebels waving flags, but
communities no longer dependent and fueling a corrupt system we all know must come to an end.

35. Tea Party is Controlled
The Tea Party was created to be a mouse trap for millions of people that were waking up
and beginning to ask the right questions and stand up for themselves.
[Now] Tea Party constituents are used as useful idiots, 'demanding' the very policies that are impoverishing
By Richard Evans
The Debt Ceiling / Default threat is a standard Punch and Judy script debate. The ceiling's raised
every year - sometimes twice a year. It's been raised 10 times since the year 2000, and 74 times since
1962. Usually they don't want the public to know so it's back page news. When they make it a big deal
like this year, it means they want to drastically cut social services.
So they play this old 'good cop, bad cop' routine. The Republicans are the bad cop that pretend to
gridlock raising tax on the rich. The argument is reversing the Bush tax cuts will prevent new job
The Democrats play "good cop" by offering to cut social security or other benefits in return for 'compromise' on
raising taxes. When it's all over, the imaginary "ceiling" is "raised", and consumers are seeing less of take
home out of their paychecks.
Obama, Capitol Hill, and Bernanke all serve the same master. Governments don't plan and dictate economic
policy anymore. The financial sector does. Who is the financial sector? It's Wall Street in America; the city
of London in England, the Bourse in France and Frankfurt in Germany. This combine has taken over the
authority of de facto centralized economic planning bureaucracies. They now control governments through
international bypassing of local laws, and they've got all the politicians in their pocket. Central banks are
controlled by financial interests - board members and controlling share holders aren't elected by consumer votes. .
So they are not beholding to the public.
It started in the 80's with massive 'de-regulation' that kept the financial sector under control since they'd tried
the last attempt at global coup d'tat between 1929 and 1933.
When you know all this, it becomes obvious how the Tea Party constituents are used as useful idiots, 'demanding'
the very policies that are impoverishing them.
What is the Tea Party? For those who can remember 2006-2008 before the election, there was a year where
a lot of people seemed to be waking up to the news that both parties were screwing them. In the
election of 2006 the Democrats regained seats through voters who wanted the military adventures and deficit
spending stopped and the troops recalled, and peace.
No sooner than the election was done Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi went on national TV with Bush and Cheney
to let voters know there would be no change in foreign policy. Alienation of voters by both parties reached
an all time high by March 2007.
That's when Ron Paul appeared to lure them back into the 'magic of believing' in the election circus.
Supposedly Libertarian, Ron Paul actually led millions of voters back to the Republican ticket.
Then was the economic shock, crash, and 'Bailout' - TARP. It was a done deal as Bush's last act of
treachery before handing off to Obama, Wall Street and the 'mysterious offshore speculators'.
So by the summer of 2009, the growing pool of alienated voters and half awake, half asleep people were herded into
this 'grass roots phenomenon' called the Tea Party.
I learned about the local Tea Party group here in town and very quickly recognized what I'd seen years before when
I was involved with the Left local organizations in the past. I assure you that anywhere more than a

In July 30's article, Fozdyke wrote, "If current debts were simply wiped off of the books the only tragedy would

"Wages will continue to be cut even as taxes are increased to service the debt owed to the Banker Lords.
Politicians everywhere are bowing and scraping before their Lords, promising deeper cuts and higher taxes. This is
as it should be and will effectively cripple economies around the world."
Unbeknownst to American consumers (ie, labor, tax payers), The exponential debt system crashed years ago and has
been running on artificial life support since 2008. "Jobless recovery" is a euphemism for depression. The
financial interests that own the politicians and the Fed - well aware the jig is up - ordered their lackeys in
government and media to make sure all losses are borne by the consumer without them knowing it for as long as
possible. In fact Obama and Bernanke have been dutifully carrying out the order to lower US wages by
30%. How do we know the percentage? That's how much it takes to bring US wages on par with the rest of
the hemisphere. In America, that's why your grocery, fuel, and utility bills have been steadily rising at an
alarming rate since last year.
Once you know that Bernanke's job has been to lower the US standard of living (wage value) 30% between 2006 and
2013 he no longer looks like a fumbler. Media encourages the public to think politicians and bureaucrats
'foul up' because they're 'stupid'. It only looks that way if you believe their job is serve and protect the
consumer. On the contrary. We are just 'human resources', i.e. livestock.
So what do consumers have to lose if Capitol Hill defaults? What would happen?
Default means the dollar would not be acceptable tender again until the United States paid. How have they
been paying? They have been promising the labor of Americans that have to pay taxes. That means 18-40% of the
labor of those just starting careers will go to the Federal Reserve combine for the next four decades of their
lives - just to pay the interest on debt incurred this year.
When they "raise the ceiling," that means they've taken it out of the future pockets of American taxpayers. US
money isn't backed by gold or natural resources. it's backed by HUMAN resources.
Remember it's the Globalist financial sector calling the shots through their vassal politicians. The only
reason they would tell the politicians to actually default is this: it will mean they want to collect the
"debt" in privatization of public sectors. A serious example of hostile privatization of public assets was
after the Soviet Union fell down, and the Russian government handed over natural resources like OIL to private
'investors'. The buyers were called "the Oligarchs" and they were nothing but proxies for House
Will they default this time? I don't think they will so long as the US Military occupation of the
Middle East is necessary in their unfolding plans. So I expect default will come after the next big war.
36. The International Monetary Fund's "Kiss of
By Paul Drockton
"They’ll say the IMF is arrogant. They’ll say the IMF doesn’t really listen to the developing
countries it is supposed to help. They’ll say the IMF is secretive and insulated from democratic
accountability. They’ll say the IMF’s economic ‘remedies’ often make things worse – turning slowdowns into
recessions and recessions into depressions. And they’ll have a point. I was chief economist at the World Bank
from 1996 until last November, during the gravest global economic crisis in a half-century. I saw how the
IMF, in tandem with the U.S. Treasury Department, responded. And I was appalled." (Joseph Stigletz-
Former IMF Chief Economist)
8/3/11 (Special Thanks to S. Davis)
The following is from the International Monetary Fund Website:
"the IMF remains one of the largest official holders of gold in the world. Consistent with the
new income model for the Fund agreed in April 2008, on September 18, 2009, the IMF Executive Board approved
gold sales strictly limited to 403.3 metric tons, representing one eighth of the Fund's total holdings of
gold at that time. Resources linked to these gold sales will also help boost the Fund's concessional lending
capacity. The approved sales program was completed in late December 2010." (Source)
The question remains, how did the IMF acquire so much gold bullion? Again, the answer is right
on their website:
The IMF acquired its current gold holdings prior to the Second Amendment through four main types
§ “First, when the IMF was founded in 1944 it was decided that 25 percent of initial quota
subscriptions and subsequent quota increases were to be paid in gold. This represents the largest source of
the IMF's gold.
§ Second, all payments of charges (interest on member countries' use of IMF credit) were normally
made in gold.
§ Third, a member wishing to acquire the currency of another member could do so by selling gold to
the IMF. The major use of this provision was sales of gold to the IMF by South Africa in
§ And finally, member countries could use gold to repay the IMF for credit previously extended.”
In other words, when a country borrows money from the International Monetary Fund, they repay
the interest in gold bullion. The Knights Templar used the same techniques to bankrupt the Monarchies
of Europe and the Catholic Church:
- The Templars would agitate for war between the monarchies of Europe, and Crusades for the
- They would also lobby for increased "social spending"
- Cash strapped kings and Pope's would borrow "chits", the Templar version of "money" from
- All loans and interest were repaid in gold and silver.
Gold and silver are the only real wealth in this world. Exchanging worthless pieces of paper for
real bullion hardly seems like a fair exchange, but, these men are, after all, plundering pirates. The
IMF is the gold collector, and apparently resells the gold it collects at a deep discount to "member nations"
central banks (Rockefellers and Rothschilds). (Ibid.)
It also resells the gold to other private (Rothschild/Rockefeller) banking concerns at supposed
"The first phase in the Fund’s gold sales was set aside exclusively for off-market sales to
interested central banks and other official holders, which were conducted at market prices at the time of the
transactions. In October and November 2009, the Fund sold 212 metric tons of gold in separate off-market
transactions to three central banks: 200 metric tons were sold to the Reserve Bank of India during October
19-30; 2 metric tons to the Bank of Mauritius on November 11; and 10 metric tons to the Central Bank of Sri
Lanka on November 23." (Ibid)
The New World Order is made possible by the private ownership of the world's currencies and the
multitude of privately owned National Banks. Whether those concerns exist in Great Britain, India, or the United States means very little, as
they are all controlled by the same small cabal of Satanic Psychopaths that reside in the "City of London".
The City of London is a one square mile parcel of property that enjoys the same autonomy as the Papal State
The International Monetary Fund exists as just another tool to plunder those countries that get
sucked into the Banksters' perpetual wars and endless creation of "social programs". They are Parasites that
suck off the life blood of everything that is good in this world.
We end up with trillions of dollars in debt. They end up with trillions of dollars in gold and
silver. We bury our dead by the hundreds of millions, they profit from the funerals.

Geerd Hamer, above, discovered that not only cancer but all diseases are triggered by unexpected
shocks and traumas. Thugs showed up and threatened that if he didn't disown his findings, things would become
By Stephen Coleman
In 1978, Dr. Hamer's son Dirk was mortally wounded in a shooting accident, shot by the crown prince of Italy. Dirk
died 4 months later.
Six months later Dr. Hamer was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He had the cancer surgically removed.
Since Dr. Hamer never had been seriously ill, he wondered if the sudden shock of his son's accident may have
triggered his cancer. While working in a large cancer clinic, he visited the ward with testicular cancer patients
and began asking them questions. He noted that, prior to the diagnosis, every patient has had a serious conflict,
or loss of a loved one.
He visited the ovarian cancer ward and the patients also had lost a dear loved one prior to diagnosis. He learned
in the university that the testicles and ovaries were of the same embryonic origins.
Dr. Hamer then noted on brain CT scans that every testicular and ovarian cancer patient had a dark spot in the same
location. He concluded that not only cancers but all disease is triggered by unexpected shocks and traumas.
Later he came to the conclusion that various related smaller emotional triggers can accumulate over years or even
decades to manifest as disease.
In 1981, he submitted his findings in a post doctoral thesis at the University at Tubingen, Germany. Within
days, a couple of thugs showed up at his home. They threatened that if he didn't disown his findings things would
become unpleasant. Dr. Hamer refused. He had made a momentous discovery and had rigorously proved it.
Meanwhile Dr. Hamer and his wife were the target of constant harassment from the the powerful Italian Savoy family
who were responsible for their son's death. Dr Hamer believes that this constant persecution eventually caused the
death of his wife in 1985.
A few months later the University of Tubingen rejected his thesis without any testing or serious review.
They refused to accept the link between the psyche and disease. Years later, the court ordered the university
to test Hamer's findings. Despite this the university has never complied.
In 1986, court action was sought against Dr. Hamer for refusing to deny his discoveries. The court took away his
license to practice medicine, told him to get another line of work and warned him not to speak to any cancer
Nevertheless, he operated an underfunded cancer clinic and was having phenomenal success with a 92% cure rate in
well over 20,000 cases. Dr. Hamer maintains that modern cancer treatments are cruel, barbarous and
unnecessary. He says that if he knew the truth back when he had his testicular cancer, he would never have asked
for its surgical removal.
The persecutions became so intense that he fled to Spain, where he practiced. Eventually he was arrested and
falsely imprisoned. France extradited him for further persecution and imprisoned him for a further three years on
ridiculous falsified charges.

39. Why did Japan
Sixty-six years ago, we
dropped a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima. Now, some historians say that’s not what ended the
August 7, 2011
What ended World War
For nearly seven decades,
the American public has accepted one version of the events that led to Japan’s surrender. By the middle of 1945,
the war in Europe was over, and it was clear that the Japanese could hold no reasonable hope of victory. After
years of grueling battle, fighting island to island across the Pacific, Japan’s Navy and Air Force were all but
destroyed. The production of materiel was faltering, completely overmatched by American industry, and the
Japanese people were starving. A full-scale invasion of Japan itself would mean hundreds of thousands of dead
GIs, and, still, the Japanese leadership refused to surrender.
But in early August 66
years ago, America unveiled a terrifying new weapon, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a
matter of days, the Japanese submitted, bringing the fighting, finally, to a close.
On Aug. 6, the United
States marks the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing’s mixed legacy. The leader of our democracy purposefully
executed civilians on a mass scale. Yet the bombing also ended the deadliest conflict in human
In recent years, however, a
new interpretation of events has emerged. Tsuyoshi Hasegawa - a highly respected historian at the University of
California, Santa Barbara - has marshaled compelling evidence that it was the Soviet entry into the Pacific
conflict, not Hiroshima and Nagasaki, that forced Japan’s surrender. His interpretation could force a new
accounting of the moral meaning of the atomic attack. It also raises provocative questions about nuclear
deterrence, a foundation stone of military strategy in the postwar period. And it suggests that we could be
headed towards an utterly different understanding of how, and why, the Second World War came to its
“Hasegawa has changed my
mind,” says Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Making of the Atomic Bomb.”
“The Japanese decision to surrender was not driven by the
President Truman’s decision
to go nuclear has long been a source of controversy. Many, of course, have argued that attacking civilians can
never be justified. Then, in the 1960s, a “revisionist school” of historians suggested that Japan was in fact
close to surrendering before Hiroshima - that the bombing was not necessary, and that Truman gave the go-ahead
primarily to intimidate the Soviet Union with our new power.
Hasegawa - who was born in
Japan and has taught in the United States since 1990, and who reads English, Japanese, and Russian - rejects
both the traditional and revisionist positions. According to his close examination of the evidence, Japan was
not poised to surrender before Hiroshima, as the revisionists argued, nor was it ready to give in immediately
after the atomic bomb, as traditionalists have always seen it. Instead, it took the Soviet declaration of war on
Japan, several days after Hiroshima, to bring the capitulation.
Both the American and
Japanese public have clung to the idea that the mushroom clouds ended the war. For the Japanese, Hiroshima is a
potent symbol of their nation as victim, helping obscure their role as the aggressors and in atrocities that
include mass rapes and beheading prisoners of war. For the Americans, Hiroshima has always been a means
justified by the end.
“This seems to touch a
nerve,” observes Hasegawa.
That may help explain why
Hasegawa’s thesis, which he first detailed in an award-winning 2005 book and has continued to bolster with new
material, is still little known outside of academic circles, says Ward Wilson, a nuclear weapons scholar who has
drawn on Hasegawa’s insights in his own recent work. Measured against the decades of serious and settled
thinking about World War II, Hasegawa’s scholarship feels radical. But another reason, Wilson argues, is that to
look at history in this new light is to entertain what seem like shocking ideas. That the destruction of cities
does not sway leaders. That what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not overly remarkable. And, strangest of
all: That nuclear explosives may not be particularly effective weapons of war.
The Pacific War began in
1941 with the violent humiliation at Pearl Harbor. Japan already held parts of China, and quickly invaded New
Guinea, the Dutch East Indies, Burma, and Singapore. Manila fell. The country enjoyed air supremacy across most
of Southeast Asia; in February 1942, it even attacked Australia. Japan’s control was tightening, and it appeared
After the epic Battle of
Midway in the summer of 1942, however, the United States and its allies gained the momentum. Still, progress was
slow as Marines hopped from atoll to island to atoll: wading through bloody coral shallows under a rain of
shelling, engaging an enemy that was dug in, highly trained, and willing to fight to the death. The names of
these tropical hells - Gaudalcanal, Iwo Jima, Okinawa - have become Marine Corps legend. The casualties were
By the summer of 1945, the
Americans had cornered Japan and assembled a final invasion plan, codenamed Operation Downfall. The first stage
was scheduled for the fall, and would have opened with the landing of more than 700,000 troops on Kyushu, the
southernmost of the big four islands. It would have been a larger operation than D-Day, certain to result in a
Americans, then and today,
have tended to assume that Japan’s leaders were simply blinded by their own fanaticism, forcing a catastrophic
showdown for no reason other than their refusal to acknowledge defeat. This was, after all, a nation that
trained its young men to fly their planes, freighted with explosives, into the side of American naval
But Hasegawa and other
historians have shown that Japan’s leaders were in fact quite savvy, well aware of their difficult position, and
holding out for strategic reasons. Their concern was not so much whether to end the conflict, but how to end it
while holding onto territory, avoiding war crimes trials, and preserving the imperial system. The Japanese could
still inflict heavy casualties on any invader, and they hoped to convince the Soviet Union, still neutral in the
Asian theater, to mediate a settlement with the Americans. Stalin, they calculated, might negotiate more
favorable terms in exchange for territory in Asia. It was a long shot, but it made strategic sense.
On Aug. 6, the American
bomber Enola Gay dropped its payload on Hiroshima, leaving the signature mushroom cloud and devastation on the
ground, including something on the order of 100,000 killed. (The figures remain disputed, and depend on how the
fatalities are counted.)
As Hasegawa writes in his
book “Racing the Enemy,” the Japanese leadership reacted with concern, but not panic. On Aug. 7, Foreign
Minister Shigenori Togo sent an urgent coded telegram to his ambassador in Moscow, asking him to press for a
response to the Japanese request for mediation, which the Soviets had yet to provide. The bombing added a “sense
of urgency,” Hasegawa says, but the plan remained the same.
Very late the next night,
however, something happened that did change the plan. The Soviet Union declared war and launched a broad
surprise attack on Japanese forces in Manchuria. In that instant, Japan’s strategy was ruined. Stalin would not
be extracting concessions from the Americans. And the approaching Red Army brought new concerns: The military
position was more dire, and it was hard to imagine occupying communists allowing Japan’s traditional imperial
system to continue. Better to surrender to Washington than to Moscow.
By the morning of Aug. 9,
the Japanese Supreme War Council was meeting to discuss the terms of surrender. (During the meeting, the second
atomic bomb killed tens of thousands at Nagasaki.) On Aug. 15, the Japanese surrendered
How is it possible that the
Japanese leadership did not react more strongly to many tens of thousands of its citizens being
One answer is that the
Japanese leaders were not greatly troubled by civilian causalities. As the Allies loomed, the Japanese people
were instructed to sharpen bamboo sticks and prepare to meet the Marines at the beach.
Yet it was more than
callousness. The bomb - horrific as it was - was not as special as Americans have always imagined. In early
March, several hundred B-29 Super Fortress bombers dropped incendiary bombs on downtown Tokyo. Some argue that
more died in the resulting firestorm than at Hiroshima. People were boiled in the canals. The photos of charred
Tokyo and charred Hiroshima are indistinguishable.
In fact, more than 60 of
Japan’s cities had been substantially destroyed by the time of the Hiroshima attack, according to a 2007
International Security article by Wilson, who is a senior fellow at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies at
the Monterey Institute of International Studies. In the three weeks before Hiroshima, Wilson writes, 25 cities
were heavily bombed.
To us, then, Hiroshima was
unique, and the move to atomic weaponry was a great leap, military and moral. But Hasegawa argues the change was
incremental. “Once we had accepted strategic bombing as an acceptable weapon of war, the atomic bomb was a very
small step,” he says. To Japan’s leaders, Hiroshima was yet another population center leveled, albeit in a novel
way. If they did*n’t surrender after Tokyo, they weren’t going to after Hiroshima.
Hasegawa’s work is an
important new entry into the scholarly conversation, reconstructing the conflicting perspectives of Russians,
Americans, and Japanese, and concluding that the bomb played a secondary role. Barton Bernstein, a professor of
history emeritus at Stanford University, is the unofficial dean of American atomic bomb scholarship and counts
himself as both a fan and a critic of Hasegawa. Hasegawa’s ability to read three languages, Bernstein says,
gives him a unique advantage over other scholars. Hasegawa spent years working through primary documents, with a
deep understanding of linguistic and cultural nuance. His knowledge was especially valuable because historians
of the period face such fragmentary and contradictory evidence, in part because the Japanese destroyed many
But therein lies the
weakness of the Hasegawa interpretation as well, Bernstein says. After a long war and in the space of a few
days, the Japanese leadership was hit with two extraordinary events - Hiroshima and the Soviet invasion - and
sorting out cause and effect, based on incomplete documentation, may prove impossible.
“When you look through all
the evidence, I think it is hard to weigh one or the other more heavily,” Bernstein said. “The analysis is well
intentioned, but more fine-grained than the evidence comfortably allows.”
Yet Bernstein, Hasegawa,
and many historians agree on one startling point. The public view that the atomic bomb was the decisive event
that ended World War II is not supported by the facts.
What happened at Hiroshima
and Nagasaki has framed the world’s thinking about nuclear weapons. Those days in August remain the only
instance of nuclear war. The sheer horrors of the destruction, and the lingering poison of radioactivity, inform
what has come to be called nuclear deterrence: No sane nation would bring a nuclear attack on itself, and so
having nuclear weapons deters your enemies from attacking. When two rival nations have nuclear weapons, as
during the Cold War, the result is stalemate.
disturbs this simple logic. If the atomic bomb alone could not compel the Japanese to submit, then perhaps the
nuclear deterrent is not as strong as it seems. In fact, Wilson argues, history suggests that leveling
population centers, by whatever method, does not force surrender. The Allied firebombing of Dresden in February
of 1945 killed many people, but the Germans did not capitulate. The long-range German bombing of London did not
push Churchill towards acquiescence. And it is nearly impossible to imagine that a bomb detonated on American
soil, even one that immolated a large city, would prompt the nation to bow in surrender.
If killing large numbers of
civilians does not have a military impact, then what, Wilson asks, is the purpose of keeping nuclear weapons? We
know they are dangerous. If they turn out not to be strategically effective, then nuclear weapons are not trump
cards, but time bombs beneath our feet.
Whatever the merits of this
position, it suffers the great handicap of trying to change, fundamentally, how several generations have thought
about the atomic age, says Linton Brooks, who has served in arms control and nuclear policy positions in several
administrations. “Fifty years of telling ourselves that these things are different has sort of made them
different,” says Linton. “That is the mystique of nuclear weapons.”
Hasegawa’s own relationship
to the events of August of 1945 testifies to the degree to which, all these years later, they resist clear
appraisal. As a child, Hasegawa watched the Tokyo firebombing from his roof, and he can still recall the eerie
orange glow on the horizon. Growing up, he felt anger at the Japanese government for bringing the conflict onto
its people. Later, working as a scholar in America, he accepted the position that the atomic bombing was
necessary to end the war. Today he views America’s bombings of Japan’s cities - Hiroshima and Tokyo included -
as war crimes. Yet, he adds, they are crimes America should not apologize for until Japan comes to terms with
war crimes of its own. These are the evolving views of a man who has mustered the courage to look at an ugly
period of history without flinching - something that most people, Americans and Japanese alike, have found
themselves unable to do.

with Jay Weidner on Rense Radio
Rense: Many people have heard the term “Archon” but would be hard-pressed to
define it. What is an Archon?
Weidner: To begin with, I would draw attention to two
articles on your site: The Global Coup d'Etat and the one about ownership of the world. The Queen of England owns
one sixth of the non-ocean surface of the world; and keep that in mind as we go into the Archon subject. The
Archons were whispered about in texts after the burning of the library at Alexandra with some mention of mysterious
beings called Archons. But the powers that be spent 1,300 years cleaning up the records andhad written out the Archons from our history. In 1947,
texts were found in clay jars in Nag Hammadi in Egypt and, on these texts was a story of what the Nag Hammadi
people, 2,000 years ago, thought the world was about.
The reason the Nag Hammadi texts, which date back 2,100 years (100 BC), are so important is that no-one has been
able to put a spin on it [the texts have not been altered, destroyed or omitted as in the Bible], no-one has been
able to distort or destroy them which is what they’d really like to do [to keep the information and knowledge from
the masses]. Luckily, they survived, were successfully translated and when many people read them, they found a
clear and defined discussion of what these Archons are. The texts had been buried in a deep cave in Egypt, in order
to protect the most important information that they had.
Rense: There are 13 codices containing over 50 texts, which is quite a substantial
amount of writing.
Weidner: A highly descriptive document of an entirely
different world [from the one we know]. People don’t realise that, 2,000 years ago, there was a religion on this
planet called Gnosticism, which was the biggest religion on earth at the time, was vying with Hinduism. You could
go take a university course on the history of religions now and wouldn’t even find a mention of Gnosticism. The Nag
Hammadi texts provide a description for what the Gnostics believed. Gnostic is a Greek word meaning knowledge –
gnosis. The Gnostics believe that liberation can only be achieved by knowledge, by the consumption and evaluation
of reality through knowledge. The library at Alexandria was run by Gnostics and they were the first people to
collect scrolls and books and assemble this information. Their culture spread throughout Europe and the Middle
East. This was long before the advent of the Western religions outside of Judaism which was mostly concentrated in
Israel. Gnostics preached that there was an invasion that occurred about 3,600 BC and, about 1,600 years before the
Nag Hammadi texts were buried, they wrote that this invasion was like a virus and, in fact, they were hard pressed
to describe it. The beings that were invading were called
Archons. These Archons had the ability to duplicate reality, to fool us. They were jealous of us
because we have an essence of some kind, a soul, that they don’t possess, and the Nag Hammadi texts describe the
Archons. One looks like a reptile and the other looks like an unformed baby or a foetus. It is partially living and
partially non-living and has grey skin and dark, unmoving eyes. The Archons are duplicating reality so that when we buy into it,
when we come to believe that the duplicated, false state reality is the real reality - then they become the
Rense: How are they duplicating reality? Is it by using
Weidner: Yes, according to the texts, they can get into
people and can manipulate people to do things very suddenly that are very odd. But also they are actually
responsible for the deterioration of culture, so unlike the culture of the ancient Greeks or Chinesebut a cheap façade of a culture. As the Archonic
presence has spread across the earth and has escalated in the 20th century, you can see that they are responsible for sprawl and the mass ugliness
that is everywhere.
Television is an example of Archonic imitation.
Humans are imitated on television but the imitation is altered and is nearly always obscene and profane because
not only do not understand the sacred but they hate it. They are jealous of the natural world and of
human beings with the natural world. Also of sexual relationships: loving couples make them angry and they love violence and are
sexually titillated by anger and war and death. They create war to consume energy from the
Rense: The Archons seem to be making their big move now,
at this time. You can find out about the Nag Hammadi Library on the Internet, which is the living record of the
great Gnostic movement. Gnostics and Templars seem to have been all but cleansed from history. How, in the texts,
have the Archons been described as coming here? Is there any reference to their mode of transit, travel?
Weidner: Supposedly, they live or lurk outside the inner
planets near Saturn i.e. in our solar system. The Gnostics thought that Jehovah was an alien, off planet, demon and
that he was a fake god – a masquerading Archon again - duplicating reality. They did believe in God, they believed
in what they called the one true God and that’s how they always defined it. Interestingly, Jesus defined his belief
as being of the one true God, always delineating it. I believe many of the stories of Jesus are actually Gnostic
myths about a possible rebellion against the Archons who came down very severely on the rebel.
So the Archons were released somehow from a prison – and this is probably what The Book of Enoch is about – where he said he took the demons and locked them in a
box but that they would come back at the end of time. Jesus was very interested in relating this idea that
something was going to happen at the end of time. So you see this illusion going on and then we see also that when

probably also the Archons. So we can learn more about the Archons by reading about the Annunaki who
came here and altered us genetically [using our DNA] so that they could make slaves of us. So we can work out a
picture of what these Archonic forces are. They were somehow successfully quelled and then began their re-emergence
and they are as close to immortal as we could understand and that’s why their plan is so precise but they needed
time to gain power because, the people of the earth were essentially Gnostics who were resistant to, and didn’t
believe in the “religion” that was being foisted on them where they must be fearful of an angry, war god called
Jehovah. But eventually, the forces of Jehovah conquered the last of them and now they are pretty much in control of
the system and are getting ready for the final, gleeful
[sarcastic] orgy of despair and horror [imposed upon humans] which is what they like. So,
following Tim Rifat and his horrific description of what is about to happen. This is very appropriate, very
accurate because this is exactly what they want to occur.
When I did a show for the History Channel last year, I shot it so that it would not end up making people fearful. I
shot it so that it didn’t have any fearful footage and they went behind my back and they shot more footage without
my knowing and they filled this special, for which I was one of the producers, resulting in two hours of
terrorising fear. This is the head of a major network. I think the Archons are involved in some bizarre pornography
where they are here and they are perverting us and enjoying every last second of it and we’re letting it happen and
I don’t know if there’s any escape from it because now they’ve made it almost desirable to be violent and perverted

The Rise of the
41. The Invasion Of
Australia - Official At
1 July 2011
The City of Sydney has voted to
replace the words “European arrival” in the official record with “invasion”. The deputy lord mayor,
Marcelle Hoff, says it is intellectually dishonest to use any other word in describing how Aboriginal Australia
was dispossessed by the British. “We were invaded,” said Paul Morris, an Aboriginal adviser to the council. “It
is the truth and it shouldn’t be watered down. We wouldn’t expect Jewish people to accept a watered-down version
of the Holocaust, so why should
In 2008, the then prime minister
Kevin Rudd formally apologised to Aborigines wrenched from their families as children under a policy inspired by
the crypto-fascist theories of eugenics. White Australia was said to be coming to terms with its rapacious past,
and present. Was it? The Rudd government, noted a Sydney Morning Herald editorial, “has moved quickly
to clear away this piece of political wreckage in a way that responds to some of its supporters’ emotional
needs, yet it changes nothing. It is a shrewd
The City of Sydney ruling is a
very different gesture, and admirable; for it reflects not a liberal and limited “sorry campaign”, seeking
feel-good “reconciliation” rather than justice, but counters a cowardly movement of historical revision in which
a collection of far-right politicians, journalists and minor academics claimed there was no invasion, no
genocide, no Stolen Generation, no
The platform for these holocaust
deniers is the Murdoch press, which has long run its own insidious campaign against the indigenous population,
presenting them as victims of each other or as noble savages requiring firm direction: the eugenicists’
view. Favoured black “leaders” who tell the white elite what it wants to hear while blaming their own
people for their poverty, provide a PC cover for a racism that often shocks foreign visitors. Today, the first
Australians have one of the shortest life expectancies in the world and are incarcerated at five times the rate
of blacks in apartheid South Africa. Go to the outback and see the children blinded by trachoma, a biblical
disease, entirely preventable, eradicated in third world countries but not in rich Australia. The Aboriginal
people are both Australia’s secret and this otherwise derivative society’s most amazing distinction: the world’s
In its landmark rejection of
historical propaganda, Sydney, the country oldest and largest city, recognises black Australia’s “cultural
endurance” and, without saying so directly, a growing resistance to an outrage known as “the intervention”. In
2007, John Howard sent the army into Aboriginal Australia to “protect the children” who, said his minister for
indigenous affairs, were being abused in “unthinkable numbers”. It is striking how Australia’s incestuous
political and media elite so often rounds on the tiny black minority with all the fervour of the guilty, unaware
perhaps that the national mythology and psyche remain culpably damaged while a nationhood, once stolen, is not
returned to the original
Journalists accepted the Howard
government’s reason for “intervening” and went hunting for the lurid. One national TV programme used an
“anonymous youth worker” to allege “sex slavery” rings among the Mutitjulu people. He was later exposed as a
federal government official and his “evidence” discredited. Of 7433 Aboriginal children examined by doctors,
just four were identified as possible cases of abuse. There were no “unthinkable numbers”. The rate was around
that of white child abuse. The difference was that no soldiers invaded the beachside suburbs, no white parents
were swept aside, their wages diminished and welfare “quarantined”. It was all a mighty charade, but with
The Labor governments that
followed Howard have reinforced the new controlling powers over black homelands: the strict Julia Gillard
especially: a prime minister who lectures her compatriots on the virtues of colonial wars that “make us who we
are today” and imprisons refugees from those wars indefinitely, including children, on an offshore island not
deemed to be Australia, which it
In the Northern Territory, the
Gillard government are effectively driving Aboriginal communities into apartheid areas where they will be
“economically viable”. The undeclared reason is that the Northern Territory is the only part of Australia where
Aborigines have comprehensive land rights, and that here lies some of the world’s biggest deposits of uranium,
and other minerals. The most powerful political force in Australia is the multi-billion dollar mining industry.
Canberra wants to mine and sell and those bloody blackfellas are in the way again. But this time they are
organised, articulate, militant, a resistance of conscience and culture. They know it is a second invasion.
Having finally uttered the forbidden word, white Australians should stand with
