A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Public Service Announcement


14 April 2014

Visible is moving home April 15th 2014.

At the same time, all his blogs - including this one, will be relocating, too; this means that soon this page will disappear - as will all other pages on Vis' sites. The move (the blogs' move that is, not lord Visible's) is expected to take somewhere between 3 and 8 Earth days so should complete some time between 18 and 25 April 2014.

The blogs will remain accessible however, on their old blogspot.com URLS, and here is where you are going to find them - so please bookmark the following links!


Reflections in a Petri Dish
Smoking Mirrors
Visible Origami


Please also be aware that although all the existing blogs' content will remain accessible, many image links and other bits and pieces may look a bit tatty for the duration of the move (not that anyone visits Vis blogs for pretty pictures anyway, but it's just polite to let you know)



Thank you for bearing with us during the move!

Those Fat Little Lying Whores in their Spandex Hot Pants.

Notorious sleaze-bag Kate O'Beirne said something about how it was improper to leak/disclose the existence/location of secret prisons on right-wing fantasy show- Hardball the other day. It seems like everywhere you go what used to be known as journalists (but certainly can no longer be called that under the dictionary definition) are forming opinions for the mass mind or fabricating news that they then comment on- or justifying anything, no matter how immoral or illegal.

When Tony Blair wants the public to react in a predictable manner he goes to one of Murdoch’s tabloids and has something fabricated for public consumption. It doesn't matter how outrageous or false it is. How deep into the ugly shit of the day is the media embedded? All you can see of them are the bubbles breaking on the surface.

Let’s think about this. Some collection of individuals- over a fairly long period of time- gain control of all of the organs of public information. This includes radio and television as well as the print media. Hand in hand with the corporations that pay their way through advertising and hand in hand with the government that creates and applies the laws, these three formulate the common world view and enforce it. This world view is enhanced by manufactured events, Photo-shop altered photos, fake recordings and videos and news releases and opinions on the meaning of events.

Here are some of the members of PNAC; Robert Kagan, William Kristol, William Bennett, Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Richard Pearle, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfield, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, Dov Zakheim, Richard Armitage, Dan Quayle, James Woolsey, Ellen Bork, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, Charles Krauthammer, John Bolton, Norman Podhertz. There are a few others. It’s a bit of an eye-opener to see that most of the architects of American foreign policy and the Iraq attack are listed here. It’s also interesting to note that some of the individuals strategically involved in compromising the 2000 presidential election are also here. It is further interesting to note that Dov Zakheim was the man in charge at the pentagon when something in excess of one trillion dollars went missing and... how about that William Kristol (who along with Robert Kagan founded PNAC) who runs the Weekly Standard? He works for Rupert Murdoch. Nah...geddouddahere! What a whole lot of coincidence I see. Of course, only a conspiracy nut would begin to connect the dots in this perfectly innocent collection of cosmic altruists.

But... what is most interesting is that PNAC called for a “New Pearl Harbor” and boom! There it is. That single event on 9/11 galvanized a gullible world into collective outrage against the Arab world and set the nation on a course of applied fascism. Since that time 9/11 has been used to justify just about everything done by the Bush administration. Since that time all questions about glaring inconsistencies in the official explanation of what took place has been suppressed. It is interesting to note the sudden appearance of 'detailed' pornography accusations against Charlie Sheen now that he's pointing the finger at all the 9/11 bullshit. Does one thing have anything to do with the other?

Now, you and I KNOW, that the Bush administration with the guidance and assistance of The Zionistas and British intelligence orchestrated 9/11. You know and I know that 9/11 was an inside job. You and I know that they control the media and the armies and the police forces and that they have some agenda at work. We can see part of that. I imagine that there are parts of it we cannot see. I imagine that the parts that we cannot see are even uglier than the ones we know about.

Let’s get back to the press. Who are these people who manipulate global perceptions and fabricate news? If you were industrious you could do the research and you could see who a large part of these individuals are. You could see who owns the companies and who sits on the Boards of Directors. You can find out where their sympathies lie politically and you can move on to what happens to people who point out the obvious.

It appears that we are outgunned. When I say we I mean those of us courageous enough to say something about it and to put ourselves in harms way as a result. Why would we do this? Is the truth that important? Does it matter what happens to other people as long as it isn’t happening to you? Isn’t it better to curry favor with the people in charge and see if you can’t get yourself some of that pie? It certainly seems so to the wooden headed flacks who fabricate the news, who spin the news, who do what they are told and who close their eyes to what is obvious in order to get closer to the honey pot.

Materialism is a funny thing. Its power is often severely under-estimated. There are men and women, hundreds of thousands of them, who will give up their honor, their dignity and their self-respect to publicly shill for a lie. They will do it over and over again. I don’t understand these people. I can’t get a handle on what makes them that way. It’s obvious that they are robot-controlled because you would expect, at least occasionally, that one of them would finally just break down on the news and scream, “It’s all a lie. I’ve been lying. I’ve been telling you what they told me to tell you. I knew better but I did it anyway and I am sorry.” But it never happens. Why is that?

These people took their native integrity and they dressed it up in thigh-high boots and hot pants and they put it out on the avenue for anyone with whatever it costs to do what they want to with them. They parade around as whores and they celebrate it. They are proud of it. Chris Mathews goes on TV every day and presents himself as a truth seeker and then gets down on his knees in front of millions of people and performs felatio on mass murderers. We get all outraged and vengeful and shocked when we hear about Charlie Manson or Ted Bundy. These cats were pikers. Bush and Cheney and all those other names I mentioned kill more people every hour than these guys did in their whole career. They torture and burn and mutilate. They imprison and frame and slander. They kill whole families every single day and it is okay.

Then Chris Mathews or any one of the other whores has them on TV and talks to them like they are, not just ordinary people- but leaders of the free world. They are treated with respect. They are believed. They lie constantly and they are caught out constantly and it doesn’t matter. Instead of sitting on death row or doing life in prison these mass murderers give speeches and send other men to war in illegal conflicts that are justified by lies that have been exposed a hundred times already.

What makes a man like Chris Mathews or Rupert Murdoch? What makes a woman like Katie O’Beirne or Ann Coulter? What do these lying faces on CNN and Fox News tell themselves when they lay in bed? They must know that they are lying whores. How could you not know? But it doesn’t seem to matter. Thousands of people are dying because of lies and greed and it is just okay. It’s just okay.

I don’t get it. Is it the power? Is it the exposure? Is it being believed and admired by people too stupid to tell the difference? Can you really enjoy being admired by people too stupid to see that you are a lying whore? Can there be satisfaction in knowing you are part of a machine that tortures and kills people on a daily basis?

We have seen- up close and irrefutably- of late, that there is no question now that these are all lying whores. Every single day the evidence of the lies mount and new lies are added. What a terrific irony that those who work daily to subvert and spin the news, who fabricate and lie, are also forced to report the truth that refutes their lies. By this time you are either cooperatively evil or too stupid to live if you can’t see this. Well, I may never get any further than I am and I may never know the perks and bennies that are the daily fare of these strange and unusual people but... at least I am not a lying whore who is proud of being a lying whore.

The Strange Case of Doug Thompson and Others

Yes, I have not been around for awhile. I’ve been thinking. I’m still puzzled. I’m puzzled about Doug Thompson over at Capital Hill Blue; once a fairly entertaining source of well written commentary on administration humbuggery and various other buggeries as well. I’m puzzled about what happened to Doug as I am puzzled about what happened to Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens also was entertaining and informative at one point. He certainly went after The Royal Family (in Vanity Fair) and his dispatches from Sarajevo were illuminating. He became a full on administration butt-boy and bombastic drunk. I’ve noted other peculiar conversions. I can’t get my head around them; especially when I measure the evidence that they deny against the overwhelming clarity of the evidence. There are things you can argue about because we can’t see them, weigh them, compare them. 9/11 isn’t one of those things.

What could turn a man against his conscience? What could make a man serve his self-respect up on a platter to a mocking world? What kind of fear is powerful enough to take away a man’s pride and conviction? It must be something. I can’t imagine it. I’ve been falsely accused and facing life in prison. I was offered some things if I cooperated. I did not, even with my life on the line. Ain’t it something that I walked free against all odds? No one expected it. But this isn’t about me. It is about how I can’t understand what it is that would make a man walk away from what, for me, would remove all meaning from life.

I know that 9/11 was engineered by American Neo-cons and Zionists with the complicity of the Bush administration with assistance from the members of PNAC and the forces behind it in collusion with British intelligence forces. It’s a no-brainer. Every which way you turn it, it comes back to the same people. Whether you look at the players and events or whether you view it through the lens of cui bono it’s the same.

There are some things, like Larry Silverstein- owner of WTC #7 (which wasn’t hit by anything) calling on the phone for his building to be brought down- recorded saying it ("we should probably pull it." and then the building comes down into its own footprint. Here is the $64,000 question; how did the explosives get in there? At what point were they placed there? and... WHY? Why? W H Y ? were they placed there? Larry Silverstein was involved in the 9/11 attacks and you can take that to the bank. he certainly did- to the tune of a $500,000,000.00 profit- NO QUESTIONS ASKED. This is a big question. This may be a bigger question- when considering PRE_MEDITATION- than any other. This building wasn’t even hit. This building came down the SAME WAY the two buildings that were hit came down. They all came down at the rate of direct free fall into their own footprints. Weigh... measure... think about it. Think about Silverstein taking out terrorist insurance just shortly before the attack. And remember... this entire paragraph is 100% anti-Semitic AIPAC approved. No dancing Mossad connected Israeli's were injured during the construction of this paragraph. All evidence of interogation was supressed- "We can't talk about that." and all Israelis shipped home in protective cartons. You can be sure that the truth comes out before the label goes on.

How did those explosives- which brought down WTC #7 get into the building? Did a battalion of speed freaks race in faster than the eye can see and plant the charges throughout the entire building in the short hours between the attack and the time the building came down? This is absurd right? Therefore the explosives went into the building before the attack. What does this tell you?

I’m not going to go into why I KNOW that the groups I mentioned were behind the 9/11 attack. I have addressed that elsewhere and many others have too. You can go to What Really Happened Archives

and read and read and read.

How come, with the OBVIOUS information, implications, evidence and sheer weight of incredible disinfo and lies, that no one in the United States Congress or media has come forth to the bully pulpit and asked just the one question; when did the explosives get into WTC #7 and WHY did they go into WTC #7? Forget all the rest, answer me just this one thing.

Think about it. It’s incredible isn’t it? Think about all the incredible things that don’t add up and that do add up. Look at what is happening to Charlie Sheen ( I always did like that guy). Who is doing this?

Now ask yourself; why does the media which has all of this information ignore it? Who controls the media? You can look it up can’t you? But remember, when you get the answer that the answer you get cannot be the answer. What is right in front of you cannot be right in front of you. Welcome to Lies Incorporated. Welcome to Room 101.

Let’s go back to Doug Thompson and Chris Hitchens and all of the others who changed their POV and their politics- suddenly...

I’m going to advance a theory here. I’m not saying it is so. I’m just asking you to think about it. What pressure could make a man fold? I can think of two things. One of them is the threat of death and the other is indictment for child molestation. If you are not familiar with the Dutroux case in Belgium I suggest you investigate it and especially where it leads. You can find all you want on Google. If you are not familiar with Lawrence King and the Franklin Credit Union Child Sex Ring caper in the late ‘80’s and it's connection to the Reagan White House, I suggest you look into that too. You might even dig a bit deeper and find that scandals of this sort come up in connection with powerful groups and individuals in government on a regular basis. In Britain it seems like it’s on a timer.

My new novel “The Lolita Cage” deals with an organization that uses underage sex to control and blackmail government figures around the world. When you can get a man on videotape with “a live boy or a dead girl” you’ve got a powerful persuader. Some men are afraid to die. Some men are afraid of financial ruin. All men are afraid of their reputation utterly destroyed by the most vile of charges. This is the power in the calculated use of the slur- “anti-Semitic”. It’s ironic that present day Israelis are not even of Semitic origin; only the Arabs are.

Think about it. One day you walk into a public restroom and an 8 year old boy runs out screaming, “He touched me!” or someone brings someone by your house; say you know them casually through business, socially... they bring a child... Then again, he or she could be 16 and look older. In a moment of weakness you are the one who is fucked. The press doesn’t really distinguish between 16 and 8 or 10 that much. The damage is done.

I’m not saying they used this particular frame-up on Thompson or Hitchens. I’m just saying they used something and they use this and they use all of the others too. How strong are you against something like that? One thing we do know; something happened to Thompson and Hitchens and many others. We may not know what but we know something did.

Now look at that WTC #7 thing and ask yourself one more time, “How did those bombs get in there? When did those bombs go in there? Who put those bombs in there? And you can also ask yourself if there might be bombs in your house right now... or photos ...or videos ...or whatever it would take to make you someone you weren’t before and don’t recognize now.

Is it All in My Imagination?

I guess the hardest thing for any of us to do is to cut through our own bullshit. Every time I go to write something I have to ask myself; “Do I know what I’m talking about? Am I right?” There are so many axes grinding these days that sometimes it is almost too loud to hear yourself think. There are enough wheels within wheels to make a Swiss Watchmaker smile. The word ‘Byzantine’ comes to mind. The word ‘Machiavellian’ follows soon after.

I’ve had card sharks show me how they do what they do; things I would never attempt but it’s good to see it in action. Sometimes the hand is indeed quicker than the eye but often it is a matter of mis-direction. I’ve had scams run on me and I’ve had them explained to me. This was earlier in my life. I’m not open to scams anymore because I don’t want anything that isn’t on its way or that I don’t already have.

You’ve got to assume that those playing in the international political and economic arenas have got more subtle methodologies than three-card monte hucksters, card sharks or Murphy artists. Whatever their methods are though they all trace back to the simpler scams; they are all variations on a theme.

So I look at things and I try to look into things and I try to look into myself at the same time and see if what I see is really there and if I am seeing and analyzing correctly. I noted the recent appearance of Zacarias Moussaoui in the headlines at the same time as I see Charles Sheen come out about 9/11. I note the release of the ‘one-sided’ 9/11 tapes and the absence of mention that the fires had gone out. I noticed all of the things that were missing. The focusing on Moussaoui is to give us the impression that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by Arabs. Somehow we are supposed to believe that a handful of individuals who weren’t that good at flying Cessna’s suddenly were able to pilot large commercial aircraft. Now this doesn’t make even a little bit of sense but we are told it is so.

I have been told that Iraq had WMD’s. Then I see that they did not have WMD’s. I’m told that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. The actual evidence shows that they can’t be building a nuclear bomb- not yet. I keep hearing from Bin Laden and yet the voice and the images don’t match up. The Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence said that it wasn’t Bin Laden’s voice on the tapes. They are the experts. They said the tapes were almost certainly faked. My common sense tells me Bin Laden is dead.

It is supposed to be anti-Semitic to say that the Jews control the American media or exert a powerful influence upon American foreign policy and political life. Yet I see this-

“According to Israel radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael, [Shimon] Peres warned [Ariel] Sharon Wednesday that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and "turn the US against us."

At this point, a furious Sharon reportedly turned toward Peres, saying "every time we do something you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."

The radio said Peres and other cabinet ministers warned Sharon against saying what he said in public because "it would cause us a public relations disaster."

Two respected scholars release a report that corroborates all of this and immediately those whom we are told do not control certain things and do not exert certain influences suddenly appear to control and exert these influences and this we can see right before our eyes.

I have observed George Bush for years and I have concluded that he is a stupid, incurious demagogue who is incapable of governing anything. I must logically assume that someone is governing him. I observe that he lies nearly every time he opens his mouth but no one of any importance seems to call him on it. If a man who is president of the United States is lying all the time, shouldn’t there be a national outrage? Why would the president have to lie all the time unless he was doing the wrong thing all the time? There are supposed to be two parties in the American Congress but I cannot locate the opposition party. I see one version of the news in the alternate press and in foreign media and I see an entirely different version in America.

All of my research into 9/11 tells me that Arabs were not behind the 9/11 bombing. My research inevitably leads me to the American neo-con movement, PNAC, Mossad and British Intelligence as the culprits of this event. I can’t seem to come up with other conclusions. I don’t want to indict, even in my mind, these powerful forces. It can’t be good for my career. What am I supposed to do? Should I seek the truth wherever it may lead or should I shut my mouth and bow my head?

Why isn’t anyone in congress or even foreign governments and the foreign press coming out and saying what is obviously true? There really seems to be a very effective suppressive force at work. It seems to me that the governments and religions of the world are all in the wrong hands as far as any greater benefits for the human race.

A single IDF soldier is killed and it is a headline at msnbc.com/ Palestinian children are regularly targeted by IDF soldiers while doing nothing at all. In some cases full clips of ammunition are discharged into their bodies and it doesn’t even make the news. Cui bono?

What am I missing? I have often stated that I am willing to change my mind immediately if someone will point out to me how it is that my conclusions are wrong. Where am I going wrong? Am I right? I don’t need to ask why certain things are happening because that is obvious. What I want to know is why does it continue? Why is nothing being done about Dafur? What the Hell is going on?

It appears to me that Muslims were targeted to be the villains of 9/11 because it served the agenda of certain interests to cast them in this light. We have seen what followed as a result. On the surface, without much argument in my mind, it seems obvious that America is behaving as a fascist state. Can the American people really be as stupid as they appear?

More ominously, all of the signs seem to indicate some new horrible action on the horizon. Bin Laden is popping up all over the place in the press. Who decides to print this? Who is doing all of this and why? I keep coming back to the same agenda and the same players? Am I missing something?

The more I look into the history of the Palestinian plight the more I see that history has been altered. The more I look at what is actually happening and what I am told is happening the more lies appear. Honestly, I don’t want to be a gadfly. I don’t want powerful forces at my throat simply because I love the Truth. Meanwhile the peoples of the world sleep in their pastures, grazing on what they can find and being manipulated, confused and set against each other. Surely there is a better way. Surely there are better leaders somewhere among us. Surely the world is not what it could be, much less what it appears to be. Is it just my imagination?
