Political Correctness in the Court of Byzantium

Despite its seeming veneer of civilization, its appearance of uniformity and routine, this world is a jungle where predators roam by day and by night. The ordinary focus is upon those at the ground level who break the usual laws which we all agree we need to maintain order. Even before Hammurabi there must have been some system. When we think of crime, we think about things like robbery, rape and murder along with all the white collar variants of the ancient shell games and cards tricks. Then there are the Badger and Murphy games and whatever else they’ve come up with since. Some laws are reasonable and some are not and... most often... the unreasonable ones come about without any connection to the well being of the public.

There’s a whole lot of hypocrisy combined with those who have the gold making the rules and we see it in things like alcohol and tobacco being legal while marijuana is not. Marijuana is illegal because of the alcohol and tobacco lobbies. Alcohol and tobacco kill more people in one year than all the illegal drugs in the world across a century or more and... when it comes to manufacturing violence and guilt; alcohol has no equal. If we could package and sell violence we could make a fortune, come to think of it... we do. I’m not just talking about movies and videogames and sporting events, I’m talking arms and the money for the causes for the wars from which the bankers rake in the profit from both sides of the conflict. Meanwhile, hemp production could revolutionize the world and that is also something that someone... doesn’t want to happen.

Now we are talking about bigger crimes and bigger criminals. I’ve a new blog called Profiles in Evil and in coming months I’m going to feature some of these people, the same way that Hustler used to profile their ‘asshole of the month’, complete with a list of their crimes. I’m thinking it should look like a baseball card with all the stats. We might even make them like the playing cards that circulated with pictures of the Iraqi leaders so... stay tuned.

Ordinary crime is something most of us want controlled and contained. However... these days there are so many things that have become criminal that most of us are lawbreakers without even knowing what we’ve done. Somewhere there’s a great big book of laws about crimes we may not have even heard about. The book is written in lawyer speak and authored by anyone in a position to do so for the purpose of control and financial profit which benefits all of the industries that feed off of their enforcement. The crimes in this book are not the real crimes. The real crimes are the laws that have been created to enforce them. These crimes are all associated with the regulation of social behavior for the purpose of behavior modification and the primary kingpin, mob boss of the whole shebang is Political Correctness.

If you want to see Political Correctness, when it becomes the ruling entity in the lives of the people, you have only to study the Khmer Rouge and you can trace that back through China in the 60’s and then back to its Marxist origins in Lenin land and then back into the brains of those who fashioned the template that preceded the presence. Here’s a conservative take on PC.

Its right about here that I start to get in trouble with the people who don’t want to know because... I tend to look under the bed and in the attic; behind the shoes on the floor of the closet and even in the slaughterhouses where the parts destined for sausage are stored. Because I am looking around, I find things like this. You have to scroll all the way down to see the list and it becomes apparent that a certain group of people have a vested interest in this particular industry. Then you see the parallel to this industry. Then you swerve around through historical realities and bend time a little to wind up behind the thing you are talking about and you see things like this. You can snake back over the course of time and find so many parallels that maybe you really start to wonder. Then you can come into the present day and you see Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza at the end of last year.

No one can dispute the massive carnage that was Gaza and no one can dispute 60 years of land theft and genocide. No one can dispute the apartheid status of the Palestinians but that isn’t the point of this piece. We are talking about Political Correctness and we want to tie all of these links into what happened when George Galloway wanted to speak in Canada and the ruthless suppression of free speech, including imprisonment whenever anyone criticizes the behavior of Zionist entities, due to politically correct laws that are designed to prohibit one’s ability to reveal the truth or to draw attention to bad behavior which... would have been against the law in Hammurabi’s time as it ‘should be’ against the law now.

So what we are getting is things like this and things like this. You have to trace that back to this peculiar period in history when Theodor Herzl founded Zionism and declared the uses of Anti-Semitism. The uncanny sensation that I am getting is that a certain group of people created Political Correctness in order to use it as a system of control against anyone who speaks out against the industry of control. It’s a powerful system.

It appears that one of the main targets of Zionist endeavor is to destroy Christianity and you can see how that is being accomplished by simply studying what is being shown in the links previously given. It’s not just Christianity that is the target. It is Islam too, which was the point of 9/11. It all connects. What we have is a not so Holy War against competing religious groups for control of the human mind. I’m not a fan of religion but religions, like the family unit, cultures and governments, are the glue that holds society together. I wouldn’t want them all done away with because, first of all it isn’t possible; something else will always replace what went missing but... what? That is the question you need to ask.

Now, of course, those who criticize what I say here will question the mindset behind the links given but... that’s not the important point. The important point is... is it true? Are the points being made true? Are the names given as being on various boards and representing certain industries true? Are those said to be responsible for the deaths of tens of millions true? Did these people occupy these offices and did they carry out the executions that history shows them to be responsible for?

In the game of Political Correctness, telling the truth is a hate crime. In the game of Political Correctness, what is is shaped into what is not and what is not... is shaped into what is. This is being worked in the sub-basements of the educational system. Very strange things are going on at every level. Football game schedules are conflicting with God’s time slots? The level of ridiculous has rendered the word obsolete. Now... what do you get when you sift all of the components presented here? Furthermore... what do you get when you look at the players involved in the financial crash and then look at those who are empowered to fix it? Which banks were unaffected by the financial crash or... are actually reaping enormous profits? Here is a bonus question... how does the present state of epidemic foreclosures relate to the drama detailed in the book, “The Grapes of Wrath”?

So... what are we to make of political correctness and how correct is it? Is it about what it says it is about or is it about something else entirely? Did I pull all of this information out of a particular part of my anatomy or... is it true? Is it true? Show me how it is not true. Please take the time to show me that these things are lies and fabrications. Furthermore please reflect on what seems to be the point of it all; use your imagination to connect the dots and look at the image. Now tell me if the picture you see is a credible portrait of a calculated effort by a certain movement over the last however many decades or... is it just coincidence? Since this is all affecting you in real time or... it’s all a product of a deluded imagination well... you probably should analyze it to see if what is affecting you is real or not. Does that make any sense?

Somebody has too much power and that power is being used to the detriment of us all. Where does this lead and... do you want to go there? The thing is... you are going there. You are flowing with the current. You are not swimming against the tide. If one and one adds up to two then... where does that leave you? I realize that some people are telling you that one and one do not add up to two but... you might want to think about that.

Political correctness is a tool to keep the men behind the curten hidden. As for your take on alcohol I must point out that my faviorit pint is one of the few pleasures in life that I can enjoy without being hassled and, it is probably better for you than chemical sweage they call tap water.

education...

last wk, as my middle school aged kids were unusually attending school on 'good fri', as a bad weather make up day... i wondered if they still had the usual'easter mon' off here in tx, north of dallas? newp.

an online chk of the school district's website main page was less than informative...

i had to dig into a .pdf 'holiday calendar' file which contained holiday dates for xtian,jewish,sikh,bahi,hindu,buddhist observances.

i was not totally surprised to find that the page for jewish holidays was the singular example w/in the doc highlighting their holy days in yellow*,w/an accompaning '*' and designation as such.

...
as a sidenote, the month of april is now designated as jewish awareness month or somesuch... and my 8th grader twins have spend the better part of march and april studying about the 'holocaust'... spending the majority of english class reviewing/tested on a rendering of a stage production 'drama' of 'anne frank's diary', then spending more time watching the movie...

the interesting thing to me, their Lit book, explains;

Unit III, The Human Spirit
Part II, Voices of Courage
Learning the Language of Literature / Plot
The Active Reader / Story Mapping

Goodrich and Hackett
ACROSS THE CURRICULUM History
'The Diary of Anne Frank' /Drama


Willy Lindwer from 'The Last Seven Months of Anne Frank' /Interview

Gerda Weissmann Klein from 'All But My Life' /Autobiography

Gerda Weissmann Klein from 'A Diary from Another World' /Newspaper Article

105 pages of over 900 devoted to a drama... referred to in the index with the word 'history'.

from the page 'WHO WAS ANNE FRANK?'

a snip;

Born into Danger
'...With the Nazi's in control, Jews were singled out for unjust treatment. Almost immediately, they were stripped of all legal and political rights. Later Hitler tried to systematically eliminate the Jewish people. Millions of Jews were herded into concentration camps where they were brutally worked to death or murdered in the gas chambers. This horrible destruction of human life is now known as the Holocaust.'

the book does list her death attributable to disease/starvation.

interestingly the 'historical/world events' timeline only begins w/hitler's rise to power in '33. apparently nothing before that is considered historical, other than Frank's birth in '29.

71 pages of the drama's dialogue has a 'gold' star of david top/center of the page.

my point is that... school will let out in less than 5 weeks, the yearly standardized 'no child left behind' TAKS tests are under way, so no more new material/chapters will be covered on any subject this year. effectively my kids have spent well over a month and a half of their 8th grade literature class being indoctrinated into the holocaust, studying the dialogue of a '50's drama, cast as history, and told as a 'true story'..............

@Les: Les, I often find your thought sort of right along beside mine, even if I don't always agree (or even make sense). I don't want to take a lot of spacetime here, so I will just say what I think on the matter: Israel is the steel ramp leading to the slaughterhouse of our morals. It's where the pendulum of Western dualism snaps off and falls to the ground, where the gloves of modernity come off and there are no hands inside. It's where the basic mistake made by the human-herders who run the big games comes to the surface - and that mistake is the unmaking of us.

Luckily, nanomachines and a looming Ice Age keep me distracted. Along with trying to write the futures that whirl in my mind.

Lord Reptor said...

@Kikz - Do remember that to the people who play the real games, 'Jewish' is just another puppet's mask. Those who think they rule the world in secret are just as played as those who think they're ruled.

The psychology of control is to divide people into camps and pit each camp against the other. Divided, the camps are then radicalized. Political correctness is used to silence discussion/understanding/dissent, not only within the camps, but also the “external projection” to the other camps. Certain language is used in the camps, other language is used outside the camps. Camps are synonymous with subculture. The camps are racial, religious, economic, sexually diverse, geographic (to name a few), and in any manner conceivable. Can you feel the “pressure cooker”.

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

Most people can not see through the matrix. They do not realize that they are being played as fools.

Rate of information doubling in human history
(Source: Michael Lesk, at www.lesk.com/mlesk/ksg97/ksg.html)
• It took 4 million years of human existence to arrive at the
"information density" of Rome in the year 1 AD.
• 1,500 years later, in the time of Leonardo DaVinci and the
Renaissance, that information density had doubled.
• The next doubling took 250 years, as marked by the beginning
of the Industrial Revolution and the birth of democracy.
• In the six years from 1967 to 1973, another doubling occurred.
(Several earlier doublings had occurred between the Industrial
Revolution and 1967.)
• By 1998, information doubling was estimated to occur every 18
months.

The fact of the matter is, most people are not able to absorb, digest, categorize and understand information. As a result, most people psychologically turn off information perception…but not totally. They “allow-in” information that “only” agrees with their own perceptions, beliefs and understandings as a shortcut. Understanding takes effort, energy, time, and most of all…”desire”. People do not have the time, so they “filter”, they devise a shortcut strategy. Ignorance is bliss; it is a shortcut path to non-existence.

Case in point:
I had dinner with two friends last week. I am an information junkie and attempt to communicate and categorize it so that others can understand, sometimes to no avail. Speaking to my friends about some economic issues, one of them (a 50 years old man), put his fork down, stuck both fingers in his ears and said, “La La La La La La La La La La”.
The both of us were then Privileged to talk, only, about him and his business for the next hour.

Les, putting it together can be the hard part. Im going with the flow of your work, and I not getting taken out to sea, I hope.
There are many different "PC" groups that for sure arent working to create change some much as stop it, true. But Im worried about the Zionist thing. Now the linked acts of past and present Jewish money control rackets is big and should be brought to light. Its a whole other animal, this clash of social ideas. The church will be for as long as we need group thought, yes, but the details arent so important. The willness to agree in mass is all thats of matter. Now "PC" talk is a great tool for this agreement to move alone, but of what and why, the "master" dont care. If they did, we would be moving up the ladder, a planned thing, some far off land, a real new world order?
It seems there are base human level events, ideas that surface at all time and now nothings stopping the dirty stuff. I cant see a two hundred year plan to get teen sex to this level, sorry. About two hundred years ago we only had "teen sex."
The effects arent the goal, the act of control is. Most important, the "master" are getting "lazy" and just feeding and not farming anymore. Its going to be their downfall. Zionist and the lot arent the problem, itsthe reaction to and support for their actions, thats a big problem. We pay them, we watch porn, we love the dollar. Who's at fault here? Sure the dealer's so bad. How about just saying no?
Les, the PC world is a joke but please laugh at it, if not you're too, a knee jerk away from making PC laws?
Holy wars are for money, yes, but so is anything that move or uses material objects, anymore. The whole need to stay within a coffortable lifestyle is an outcome of PCness. If you and I feel the same thing shouldnt that be ok, I say no. We will never feel the same ever under the same vib? Its a false hope, and that the true crime here. Pushing dreams that will never be. Here we have super control over the mind!!!

Oh, I get it. If someone hires you to rob a bank that's okay but... if you rob the bank that's not okay.

...or someone hires you to kill their wife and that's okay but, if you do, that's not okay.

It's okay to poison a person's food but it's not okay to eat it.

Here's another... someone hires a gang of thugs to beat up women and children. If they kill them then that is fine too. We don't know who it is that hired them and no matter what we find out it is always someone else who is behind them. Eventually one might think it's just a circle. One thing for sure, the argument is a circle jerk. The people killing the women and children are dupes so we shouldn't blame them. The fact that they enjoy doing it shouldn't mean anything because someone else 'tricked' them into doing it. Someone tricked them into becoming the people involved in all the bank frauds and scams. Someone tricked them into performing false flags. Someone tricked them into stealing Palestinian land and even though their own motto about making war through deception is right there to see, it's someone else who set them up and made them do it.

Thousands of years of historical behavior from certain people is just an indication that someone else has been fooling them for thousands of years to use them as patsies. Someone else engineered the Bolshevik holocaust and someone else made sure that 2/3rd's of them became members of The Cheka. I get it. I'll never get it but I get it.

One of these comments is so strangely written that I can't even understand it. Usually I just skip over these comments because there isn't anything there that's going to be improved by my reading it but this is worse than usual.

Anyway... no problem. Somebody else is doing it so probably somebody else put me up to writing this so that somebody else would see it.

@Les again: Re: Legalization: I don't think 'they' mind the average Jo smoking the stuff - it's popularized by the controlled media behemoths. Two points occur to me, though -

a)As long as you get both the fines and some of the sales revenue, illegal beats legal all to hell and TO Hell with the taxpayer's cut, so power to the fake world of 'tolerance!' The way it is, cops and the people at the top of the illegal drug world get the majority of the profits, and Jo and his hippie friend Gro do all the work and take all the heat.

and

b)When I was a boy, I rented a copy of Reefer Madness from my local (a once-great hometown video shop called PicAFlic). When the credits of this 1930's production rolled (and boy, was that sucker over-the-top BS, wow, the Murder Plant they'd call it if half that film was true, not the Peace Plant), there they were: DOW. MacMillan Bloedel. Right in the credits, I kid you not. Went back years later, rented the exact same old tape again (from the new management...) - credits chopped, tape spliced. No kidding. I guess it broke, probly. Probly.

and, just occurring...

c)Instead of 'legalizing' pot, it'll be a case of 'illegalizing' tobacco and 'decriminalizing' "approved" use of both products (i.e. signed release, no medical coverage, high insurance premiums, police can shoot you if you're 'high', etc etc.). the possibilities for profit are huge - and many Jo's will be dumb enough to think that it's great that BigBro is looking after them so tolerantly despite how childish we just can't help our 'consumer' selves being.

and d)That's PRODUCER to you, O Parasites Who Insult My Lightbulbs While Bombing Me For My Own Good. Who do you think makes all that stuff everywhere? All those greedy lazy 'consumers'?

Oh, and while we're on manufactured self-image issues (or while I am, anyway giggle chortle whirr whirr coffee coffee!), don't you just love the way there's all outlines of Big O with a crosshairs and all this 'White Right vs MultiColoured Left' and oooo, GUNS! stuff in the media, and STILL we won't attack each other and keep staring at the banks and tapping our little feet?

Maybe we're waking up. Ooo, look over there! It's Pirates! (who of course just turn out to be more victims - that should be the new class name for the poor - not Consumer, but Victim!)

PLAM!

" religions, like the family unit, cultures and governments, are the glue that holds society together."

NO, it does NOT! You're confusing religion with spirituality.

Religion was created to divide us, the "common" people, so one group in some area looks down on others. That's EXACTLY what is Judaism; and until recently, so did christianity. One gets the idea that, if they could get away with it, the popiola and the chruch would continue in the same way, as the previous centuries. Thing is, need to control us, since the're billions of We, the People, and only a few thousands of "Therm"- if that many.

Spirituality is from the heart and Soul, and does NOT need structure, rules, SET PRAYERS, ceremonies or buildings or some "go-between" between THE Creator, the All That Is, or whatever you call that Force. One can feel and stand there, anywhere, where one is and send feelings/emotions to that Force. Even in the middle of an errand or a chore. Whatever one does is a PRAYER. Petting a "4-legged", washing clothes, cooking a meal. THAT is Spirituality.

The title of this piece was not, "Chicken Soup for the Mentally Challenged." AND- so far as we know, spell-checking is not yet a hate crime. Just thought I'd mention this in case anybody got lost and wound up here on their way to the Cliff Notes Convention down the street.

Les, the problem is the mind frame that "someone else" is doing. Its bad loop to work with. Yes circles can be made, and judgement pulled out of the spinning wheel. I ask who is doing the "doing?" I hope you, and no one else!!! Yes, people act out for other peoples needs, and yes, and small number of people effect the actions of the rest, but not you? Its to easy to fix this, and most of the people posting here, just write off the poor sheep that are doing the doing. Its no big thing to feel as if you see the world different than the SQ, great, but its worse to feel others cant do this, or wont. The "Zionist" hope you go down this road.
Its our job to share, and you have given so much, dont loop backwards. Dont feed the machine and start using titles and names. Walk away form PC words. You know well, that if you repeat something long enough, it becomes a truth for the mind, even if it not right. Dont get it stuck in peoples minds that anyone other than themselves can effect change or "control" the outcomes.
The Profiles in Evil is a wonderful idea, yes it plays off smoke and mirrors too, but what fun you can have. What better way to use the tools agianst the man! Pictures work better anyway.

@Les: No, I've been Lord Reptor since before the Internet (I used to have an Apple II, I'm that old). The only site I ran was Damp Caverns (currently closed), where I did do a lot of photography and weird fiction. I may have been the oddly-written incomprehenible commenter you mentioned...that happens to me a lot, but I still think it's really all the rest of you and not me that has the communications issues....

anyway, what I meant to say was that the whole wild road of Western Empire and Israel, which has been a long long one (just read Ivanhoe!), is leading somewhere...and that where is a place in which moral compasses have been replaced by coloured pins. it's a road with two impassable sides and a trapdoor in the middle. Leading to Zamiatin's We, to Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, to Orwell, to Hell.

I'm off to go and plant chard, lettuce, root crops, and the occasional pretty shrub on somebody else's land. A Lord's gotta eat.

p.s. beware of imitations...ever since I got myself tossed down the memory hole at the Guardian for getting on someone's sociopolitical nerves while using security software (oh, DO come and kick the door in boy's the kettle's on, there's fresh bread and I could use the conversation - and besides, I've sworn off politics as a bad job) ahhh digressing again anyhoo ever since then,

there's been a few more of me out there than there are of me. A little cut, a little paste...but anyway if it ain't my Google account, it ain't me...until the beleaguered Google AI gives me up too, at which point I'll just, well, I don't know, continue acting strange as is my wont. Flashing eyes, floating hair, beware beware, etc. You know.

Is it my imagination or is there a slight change of tone in your recent article? It may simply be a reflection of a better understanding of the affairs. Any way, we all are in for the change.

To understand the complexity of our human nature and the human affairs we need to understand The Origin – The Origin of it all – with a purely scientific perspective. I will, if I may, strongly urge you to read the two articles: http://www.viewsandpreviews.com/creator1.html and http://www.viewsandpreviews.com/creator2.html .
The approach here is purely Philosophical Physics. You will see the Universe, Human, God and religion(s) in a different perspective. You will have a better understanding of the nature and the causes of the ongoing struggle and the seemingly chaotic world. There is more to it than meets the eye.

Your stamina complements your stomach and you continue to surprise. Or maybe my ego just makes me forget I am not the only fountain of true knowledge and understanding. These submissions my attempt to expiate the sins of omission accumulated in blending in and keeping the low profile which I lost at the Tea Party when I lustily booed the Govboys" Rep. There's a link on WRH to Tsarion on the Constitution Con. It's replete with cites of the Zion mongering agents who finessed the usurpation and demise of the 13 rebellious colonies under the articles of confederation Un-INC. I repeat that all my knowing things and talking or writing about them does less to effect real change than the prana blasting I rediscovered recently. The US is Zion. Benjamin the Franklinist was the Bill-Oreilly of his time, except considerably more subtle. Nothing subtle in todays' slap in the face media is there? And Glenn Beck, who is Bills' disciple and heir apparent for Fox primetime seems to have the famed ones' chutzpah. Both are slimy, wretched and arguments for censorship. News programming and the editors who produce it ought to be fine-able for blatant misrepresentations. I ramble so goodbye for now.

So what we are seeing is the destruction of societies and cultures. An attack that has come from many directions.

One aspects is, and there are many, is that our society is more advanced in a technical sense but not on an individual level. When a high school graduate of 2000 has 1/3 the vocabulary of a 1900 grad something is wrong. The masses are wired into technology for survival and technology can be turned off at the flip of a switch.

The sad part of all this is the realization of how much human suffering is intentional. From the blatant evils of things like Gaza to the intentional destruction of our economy.

The only logical explanation is that the elite are of motivated by something dark.

That is why they so fear being exposed into the light. for this, I must express great appreciation to Les for holding up the light where darkness rules.

Le Mat;

In response to your reasoned commentary concerning my work; what I say is never presented in a screaming or hate filled way and I doubt anyone else would see it so. I generally write in measured tones and save the impassioned statements for another blog which, brings me to my point. I author several blogs with several purposes.

I have been at pains to let people know that I am a work in progress and I do make mistakes and when they are pointed out or when I catch them I try to be quick with the apology.

On the other hand, a lot of people say some very complimentary things about me and sometimes attribute spiritual characteristics and powers to me that I don't have and, if I do have them I am unaware of them. Sometimes I behave in a less polished way on purpose just so people will have evidence that I am human a failable. Sometimes I snap a bit and lash out in a certain way and it should be assumed that I am aware of how some people will take it. It's calculated to see how they respond and to get a better measure of them.

Form what I little I got of his rant, m_astera just lashed out at me over at Petri Dish. He seemed incensed about what I had to say to Pot with whom I am OK with and with whom I occasionally get into a certain amount of bantering with. As it so happens, what I had to say originally was also directed at him which may be why he went ballistic. I stand by what I said however. I'm not just going to accept that Gandhi was a tool. That doesn't wash with me. I've a deep respect for him. Maybe that means I'm blind as well as flawed.

A lot of people read here. I didn't go out and chase them down. I don't advertise. I don't trade links. I don't network. I just write what I have to say. Ove the course of time I have had big supporters turn into nasty enemies. I've been informed of letter writing campaigns, being reported to Interpol and various other offenses that weren't generated by anything more than my refusal to play pattycake with anyone. I've had people who were aggressively opposed to me become friends and vice versa. I've seen a lot of things since I started doing this.

I'm not a prophet or a holy man and I'm also not a scoundrel or manipulator. I'm just me and I have known for a long time that people can turn on you in a heartbeat. I've seen long time readers suddenly and for no reason become crazy over some little detail that is surely not connected to any real reason for the event. I don't try to analyze it. When I hear complimentary things or less than complimentary things I try to see them as perspectives that can change in a moment.

For whatever the reason, there are some number of people who like what I do and as long as that is the majority I will continue. When I get criticisms I always consider them but sometimes I don't agree, sometimes the criticism is based on something that isn't even the thing under discussion. I can't control any of it so I just have to go through it.

I try to be fair and I try to be kind and sometimes I do things to see what happens because I may not trust something and I want it revealed. Usually that works.

Anyway... I'm just doing my best.

Tsarion is a good start, and has given us a good overview of history and our place in that story. He too, helps put together a path or way. It starts with the "dark self" and move out. He tells us to link ideas to earthly places in hope of grounding faith to the other half of us, the world see by the eyes. He gives no answers nor asks for truth. The quest or finding of ones self he asks. His use of Jung's ego line works well, and should be view if we want to hear the whole self, body, mind, heart, and soul.

PS Mary Jane is a gateway drug, but not to other drugs. Its used by more than half of the world and then can be used to control and screen others things. It a gateway to prosecution.

Yes... I'm aware of that.. Tsarion.

I personally don't use marijuana. I don't use many drugs period. I do use ketamine and certain psychedelics at certain times for reasons I have explained elsewhere.

In the end, the body/mind has the capacity to recreate any state created by any drug and that is what I am after.

Hi Les

(Is Mor Visible your twin?:-))

Here are some words which will surely inspire all of us.

Blog on, bro'!

THE SILENT REVOLUTION

On the surface of the world right now there is
war and violence and things seem dark.

But calmly and quietly, at the same time,
something else is happening underground
An inner revolution is taking place
and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.

It is a silent revolution.
From the inside out. From the ground up.
This is a Global operation.
A Spiritual Conspiracy.

There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.
You won't see us on the T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper
You won't hear about us on the radio
We don't seek any glory
We don't wear any uniform
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.

Most of us work anonymously
We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.

You could pass by one of us on the street
and not even notice
We go undercover
We remain behind the scenes.

It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done.

Occasionally we spot each other in the street
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way
During the day many of us pretend we have "normal jobs"
But behind the false storefront at night
is where the real work takes a place.

Some call us the Conscious Army
We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts
We follow, with passion and joy.

Our orders come from from the Central Spiritual Intelligence
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking

Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Movies ~ Kind words ~
Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance - Art ~ Social activism ~
Websites - Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness...

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents,

Be the change you want to see in the world
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place.

We know that quietly and humbly we have the
power of all the oceans combined
Our work is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains
It is not even visible at first glance
And yet with it entire tectonic plates
shall be moved in the centuries to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century
You don't have to be a highly educated person
Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it
It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all
human beings.

Be the change you want to see in the world
Nobody else can do it for you.

We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.
All are welcome
The door is open

A while ago I commented on the ancient Roman concept of the List of the Proscribed. That is how a "Profiles in Evil" can be viewed. Anyone alive and on that list can be viewed as subject to apprehension anywhere in the world by citizens of the planet.

Various "citizen arrests" on known war criminals have been attempted in Canada and elsewhere, but have failed because it was just one individual.

When a posse of thousands shows up to greet a war criminal, then there will be some success. Tea parties, while good to raise awareness and solidarity, will ultimately fail because there is no focus nor resolution. This is the reason anti-war rallies fail, and the authorities allow them to continue as anger/energy dissipation mechanisms.

However, if the rally had in mind the apprehension of war criminals, and if that rally were attended by thousands upon thousands, then justice might begin to be served. There would be a clear goal and resolution: particularly if, after a few attempts to have such apprehended war criminals turned over to the Hague for prosecution, that set of judicial criminals in the Hague let the powerful walk. THEN there would be posses, apprehension, tribunal justice, sentencing and immediate dispensation of justice.

The trick is sufficient numbers of posse members, with legality provided by an ad hoc grand jury of thousands, said grand jury appointing itself as the posse. There is clear precedence in common law to do just that: declare existing governments criminal, null and void by acclamation.

The internet can be used the next time, not to organize tea parties or ant-war rallies, but to organize a confederation of grand jury/posses, for the sole purpose of arresting, prosecuting, and punishing war/ financial criminals.

No death penalty, please. Permanent marking in the least painful way OK. Tattoo "T" for Traitor to Humanity across their forehead. A big "T".

Two things... Annie- is that you Charlotte my beloved friend?

Unknown Blogger; precisely. That is just what I am aiming for when I chide and don't think for a moment that I don't know that that is going on. This is exactly what I expect because the reality of reincarnation shows that a generation of vipers is always followed by an improvement on the theme. I consider reincarnation the best weapon truth ever had. It's right up there with teh blood of martyrs; which I hope I can be excused for formerly getting a little pissed when anyone says anything bad about Martim Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi.

As I tried to point out in my novel, I have had three real heroes in my life who were not spiritual masters. They are MLK, Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan; all black men. And all of them gifted by God just to prove a point.

When it comes to kicking ass... The avatar is going to walk down the hill and fuck them all and he is nearly on the scene. We are in the time of Biblical prophecy and Mayan prophecy and every legitimate prophecy. We are in THE TIME. If there ever was a time to be real and to risk it all for the only thing worth having then this is it.

I hold close to what I am certain of and I know that the second coming is not a person but a reality waking up in many hearts at the same time. Anyone who is willing will get a taste and for those who have worked in the darkness... like Strider and the Rangers on the borders of the Shire even more is coming.

Some believe they can kill where no one sees but I know the witness always returns and I know that the ultimate point of existence is freedom and the promise of what no government or individual has the capacity to bring forth. We are at the turning of the age. No more needs to be said. Watch and wonder and know the meaning of awe.

Les,

Josey here.

I might believe some of the comments except for this fact.

In the GAZA destruction. Israel lost 14. Of those 14 several were from friendly fire and accidents not related to the fighting directly.

Israeli troops made SURE THEY KILLED 100 to 1

In GAZA over 1,400 were killed, no accident. Thats 14 X 100 = 1,400+

Look at what their religious leaders were saying before they were invaded.

"It's your DUTY TO SHOW NO MERCY, KILL EVERYONE, MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, THEY ARE ALL GUILTY".

.....NO TRIAL, NO EVIDENCE, JUST KILL THEM.

That was the rallying cry and oh, "And don't fuck with the Jews"

I have heard it before, kill one hundred of theirs for every one of ours.

In their other wars, this 100 to 1 kill ratio has been true, take a look.

They truly believe they are worth 100 times as much as any of us.

Or do I have that fucking wrong?

All the other bullshit in the comments section does not matter because they have acted on this repeatedly.

Any thoughts on Kenneth Wilber?

I may have brought him up before, or maybe not. But I went through a phase a couple of years ago, read all of his stuff. The whole Spiral Dynamics thing helped me stop trying to talk to everyone.

I was bowled over by him, and I was just dying for Wilber to start taking his work on into the "future", but he seems to be stuck teaching everyone his elementary points.

So he`s not a prophet, but a necessary pedagogue, I guess.

In any event, he gives the PC crowd the old heave-ho. "Boomeritis" is his name for their "disease." That was kind of entertaining, when he stopped trying to explain things to them, and started making fun of them.

Maybe he`s just laying low, biding his time.

Maybe he`s an Illuminati toolbox.

I don`t know.

Anyway, Les, ever read any of his stuff?

Hey Les,

I grooved on this one. Actually I've been grooving on each of your recent pieces. Is your head in a good place at the moment? Or perhaps the planets are in alignment. Anyway, my head is at sixes and sevens lately and it's nice that I can borrow your maths.

Dope is illegal because anyone with soil and sun can grow their own. In fact, is there anything easier to grow than dope? Since it can't possibly be controlled, illegality is the only option. The effects of dope on people is one half of the argument and the other half is that dope is just another thing people want. Nothing we want or need is in our hands. We cannot grow our own food. We can't make our own clothes. We can't make our own energy. Once water gets privatised even collecting rainwater will be illegal. Not forgetting that what with ready-made food and cheap take-out, hardly anyone can even cook anymore. In Sydney there are apartment buildings in which none of the apartments have a kitchen. At all.

The point of the exercise is to ensure that whatever it is we need has money as the only way of getting it. None of us labours for food, or power, or water. We labour for money. If we could generate our food, power, water, and, yep, dope, we wouldn't need money. Well not hardly, anyway. We'd still be labouring. Just not for a middleman. The point of the exercise is to put us under the control of those who have a monopoly on money. It is the 'always be a middle-man' logic taken to ultimate point. Everything must go through the money middle-man. That fellow can control all things.

And then there's the destruction of christianity and the rise of PC. Likewise these are elements in a total campaign. Can I call it a campaign against 'all the ties that bind'? Control in and of itself is definitely a part of PC, sure, but PC is a misrepresentation and trashing of what was otherwise known as 'politeness'. So perfectly wrong was PC that people decided 'to hell with it' and next thing you know the baby has gone out with the bathwater. Politeness is devalued and the otherwise sensible function it served by way of smoothing out potential discord is lost. Let discord reign!

But like dope, PC isn't actually that special. I put it together with feminism, communism, and youth culture each of which co-opted and went on to trashed things worth having. Feminism trashed harmony between the sexes. Men and women at each other's throats. Communism trashed the otherwise admirable concepts of public ownership, share and share alike, and 'from each according to his ability, to each according to his need'. All now burned. And the perfectly oxymoronic 'youth culture' trashes successive ties between each generation. Things we used to have in common like music and drama (even language) are now the means of our division. And then there's the pedophocracy and its proliferation of paedophilia which trashes the role of uncles.

Put all these together and what bonds are left? Wife v husband. Grandparents v parents. Parents v kids. Uncles suspect. Neighbours and even complete strangers all self-obsessed, rude, and distrustful. It's the perfect atomisation of society. If I said it was divide-and-conquer taken to the nth degree would I be wrong?

Who's left standing? Is there anyone who holds to a familial and societal coherence in the face of this atomisation?

Anyone out there read the Protocols of Zion?

Wonderful Les. I sense a recoiling going on in your writing. Perhaps the "profiles" idea is the strike. Hopefully so. Just a note on an honorable mention in same. There's a book called "The Establishment of Christianity and the Proscription of Paganism" by Maude Huttmann. (ironic) which lists all the laws enacted by Const. and his successors, utimately outlawing all other belief systems. It is, again ironically, a study of public law and economics, rather than a religio-bash. But the facts are clear and a valuable source of real history and clearly demonstrates how those in power used it for control.

Just another bit of irony:

Hi Les, wanted to add this.
A simple explanation which will bring Zionists and those who claim to be engaging in nefarious activities because it's good for their own particular religious/cultural group.
Accuse OTHERS of what one's self or one's own group is doing.
That's it, in a nutshell.
Once one understands this, then everything else comes in to focus. Psychologists call it "projection" (and I'm not referring to the astral kind:) )
Combine this with the "big lie" technique first described by a certain politician, and there you have it.
Tie these to serve those who practice usury and ethnic exclusiveness and this will explain much.
The smokescreens, the lies, the BS from those who practice projection and disseminate lies in the service of usury and exclusiveness can be seen through simply by asking a phrase consisting of 2 words-Who Benefits?

The Tower Of Basel - Secretive
Plans For Issuing A
Global Currency
Do we really want the Bank for International
Settlements (BIS) issuing our global currency?
By Ellen Brown
4-17-9


In an April 7 article in The London Telegraph titled "The G20 Moves the World a Step Closer to a Global Currency," Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote:


"A single clause in Point 19 of the communiqué issued by the G20 leaders amounts to revolution in the global financial order.


"We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity,' it said. SDRs are Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund that has lain dormant for half a century.


"In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's power to create money and begin global 'quantitative easing'. In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it."


Indeed they will. The article is subtitled, "The world is a step closer to a global currency, backed by a global central bank, running monetary policy for all humanity." Which naturally raises the question, who or what will serve as this global central bank, cloaked with the power to issue the global currency and police monetary policy for all humanity? When the world's central bankers met in Washington last September, they discussed what body might be in a position to serve in that awesome and fearful role. A former governor of the Bank of England stated:


"[T]he answer might already be staring us in the face, in the form of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).... The IMF tends to couch its warnings about economic problems in very diplomatic language, but the BIS is more independent and much better placed to deal with this if it is given the power to do so."1


And if that vision doesn't alarm conspiracy theorists, it should. The BIS has been called "the most exclusive, secretive, and powerful supranational club in the world." Founded in Basel, Switzerland, in 1930, it has been scandal-ridden from its beginnings. According to Charles Higham in his book Trading with the Enemy, by the late 1930s the BIS had assumed an openly pro-Nazi bias. This was corroborated years later in a BBC Timewatch film titled "Banking with Hitler," broadcast in 1998.2 In 1944, the American government backed a resolution at the Bretton-Woods Conference calling for the liquidation of the BIS, following Czech accusations that it was laundering gold stolen by the Nazis from occupied Europe; but the central bankers succeeded in quietly snuffing out the American resolution.3


Modest beginnings, BIS Office, Hotel Savoy-Univers, Basel


First Annual General Meeting, 1931

In Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time (1966), Dr. Carroll Quigley revealed the key role played in global finance by the BIS behind the scenes. Dr. Quigley was Professor of History at Georgetown University, where he was President Bill Clinton's mentor. He was also an insider, groomed by the powerful clique he called "the international bankers." His credibility is heightened by the fact that he actually espoused their goals. He wrote:


"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. ... [I]n general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."


Quigley wrote of this international banking network:

"[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations."


The key to their success, said Quigley, was that the international bankers would control and manipulate the money system of a nation while letting it appear to be controlled by the government. The statement echoed an often-quoted one made by the German patriarch of what would become the most powerful banking dynasty in the world. Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild famously said in 1791:


"Allow me to issue and control a nation's currency, and I care not who makes its laws."

Mayer's five sons were sent to the major capitals of Europe London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin and Naples with the mission of establishing a banking system that would be outside government control. The economic and political systems of nations would be controlled not by citizens but by bankers, for the benefit of bankers. Eventually, a privately-owned "central bank" was established in nearly every country; and this central banking system has now gained control over the economies of the world. Central banks have the authority to print money in their respective countries, and it is from these banks that governments must borrow money to pay their debts and fund their operations. The result is a global economy in which not only industry but government itself runs on "credit" (or debt) created by a banking monopoly headed by a network of private central banks; and at the top of this network is the BIS, the "central bank of central banks" in Basel.


Behind the Curtain

For many years the BIS kept a very low profile, operating behind the scenes in an abandoned hotel. It was here that decisions were reached to devalue or defend currencies, fix the price of gold, regulate offshore banking, and raise or lower short-term interest rates. In 1977, however, the BIS gave up its anonymity in exchange for more efficient headquarters. The new building has been described as "an eighteen story-high circular skyscraper that rises above the medieval city like some misplaced nuclear reactor." It quickly became known as the "Tower of Basel." Today the BIS has governmental immunity, pays no taxes, and has its own private police force.4 It is, as Mayer Rothschild envisioned, above the law.


The BIS is now composed of 55 member nations, but the club that meets regularly in Basel is a much smaller group; and even within it, there is a hierarchy. In a 1983 article in Harper's Magazine called "Ruling the World of Money," Edward Jay Epstein wrote that where the real business gets done is in "a sort of inner club made up of the half dozen or so powerful central bankers who find themselves more or less in the same monetary boat" those from Germany, the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Japan and England. Epstein said:


"The prime value, which also seems to demarcate the inner club from the rest of the BIS members, is the firm belief that central banks should act independently of their home governments... . A second and closely related belief of the inner club is that politicians should not be trusted to decide the fate of the international monetary system."


In 1974, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision was created by the central bank Governors of the Group of Ten nations (now expanded to twenty). The BIS provides the twelve-member Secretariat for the Committee. The Committee, in turn, sets the rules for banking globally, including capital requirements and reserve controls. In a 2003 article titled "The Bank for International Settlements Calls for Global Currency," Joan Veon wrote:


"The BIS is where all of the world's central banks meet to analyze the global economy and determine what course of action they will take next to put more money in their pockets, since they control the amount of money in circulation and how much interest they are going to charge governments and banks for borrowing from them... .


"When you understand that the BIS pulls the strings of the world's monetary system, you then understand that they have the ability to create a financial boom or bust in a country. If that country is not doing what the money lenders want, then all they have to do is sell its currency."5


The Controversial Basel Accords

The power of the BIS to make or break economies was demonstrated in 1988, when it issued a Basel Accord raising bank capital requirements from 6% to 8%. By then, Japan had emerged as the world's largest creditor; but Japan's banks were less well capitalized than other major international banks. Raising the capital requirement forced them to cut back on lending, creating a recession in Japan like that suffered in the U.S. today. Property prices fell and loans went into default as the security for them shriveled up. A downward spiral followed, ending with the total bankruptcy of the banks, which had to be nationalized although that word was not used, in order to avoid criticism.6


Among other collateral damage produced by the Basel Accords was a spate of suicides among Indian farmers unable to get loans. The BIS capital adequacy standards required loans to private borrowers to be "risk-weighted," with the degree of risk determined by private rating agencies; and farmers and small business owners could not afford the agencies' fees. Banks therefore assigned 100 percent risk to the loans, and then resisted extending credit to these "high-risk" borrowers because more capital was required to cover the loans. When the conscience of the nation was aroused by the Indian suicides, the government, lamenting the neglect of farmers by commercial banks, established a policy of ending the "financial exclusion" of the weak; but this step had little real effect on lending practices, due largely to the strictures imposed by the BIS from abroad.7


Similar complaints have come from Korea. An article in the December 12, 2008 Korea Times titled "BIS Calls Trigger Vicious Cycle" described how Korean entrepreneurs with good collateral cannot get operational loans from Korean banks, at a time when the economic downturn requires increased investment and easier credit:


"'The Bank of Korea has provided more than 35 trillion won to banks since September when the global financial crisis went full throttle,' said a Seoul analyst, who declined to be named. 'But the effect is not seen at all with the banks keeping the liquidity in their safes. They simply don't lend and one of the biggest reasons is to keep the BIS ratio high enough to survive,' he said... .


"Chang Ha-joon, an economics professor at Cambridge University, concurs with the analyst. 'What banks do for their own interests, or to improve the BIS ratio, is against the interests of the whole society. This is a bad idea,' Chang said in a recent telephone interview with Korea Times."


In a May 2002 article in The Asia Times titled "Global Economy: The BIS vs. National Banks," economist Henry C K Liu observed that the Basel Accords have forced national banking systems "to march to the same tune, designed to serve the needs of highly sophisticated global financial markets, regardless of the developmental needs of their national economies." He wrote:


"[N]ational banking systems are suddenly thrown into the rigid arms of the Basel Capital Accord sponsored by the Bank of International Settlement (BIS), or to face the penalty of usurious risk premium in securing international interbank loans... . National policies suddenly are subjected to profit incentives of private financial institutions, all members of a hierarchical system controlled and directed from the money center banks in New York. The result is to force national banking systems to privatize ... .


"BIS regulations serve only the single purpose of strengthening the international private banking system, even at the peril of national economies... . The IMF and the international banks regulated by the BIS are a team: the international banks lend recklessly to borrowers in emerging economies to create a foreign currency debt crisis, the IMF arrives as a carrier of monetary virus in the name of sound monetary policy, then the international banks come as vulture investors in the name of financial rescue to acquire national banks deemed capital inadequate and insolvent by the BIS."



Ironically, noted Liu, developing countries with their own natural resources did not actually need the foreign investment that had trapped them in debt to outsiders:


"Applying the State Theory of Money [which assumes that a sovereign nation has the power to issue its own money], any government can fund with its own currency all its domestic developmental needs to maintain full employment without inflation."


When governments fell into the trap of accepting loans in foreign currencies, however, they became "debtor nations" subject to IMF and BIS regulation. They were forced to divert their production to exports, just to earn the foreign currency necessary to pay the interest on their loans. National banks deemed "capital inadequate" had to deal with strictures comparable to the "conditionalities" imposed by the IMF on debtor nations: "escalating capital requirement, loan writeoffs and liquidation, and restructuring through selloffs, layoffs, downsizing, cost-cutting and freeze on capital spending." Liu wrote:


"Reversing the logic that a sound banking system should lead to full employment and developmental growth, BIS regulations demand high unemployment and developmental degradation in national economies as the fair price for a sound global private banking system."


The Last Domino to Fall

While banks in developing nations were being penalized for falling short of the BIS capital requirements, large international banks managed to escape the rules, although they actually carried enormous risk because of their derivative exposure. The mega-banks succeeded in avoiding the Basel rules by separating the "risk" of default out from the loans and selling it off to investors, using a form of derivative known as "credit default swaps."



BIS Tower Building, Basel


Botta 1 Building, Basel

However, it was not in the game plan that U.S. banks should escape the BIS net. When they managed to sidestep the first Basel Accord, a second set of rules was imposed known as Basel II. The new rules were established in 2004, but they were not levied on U.S. banks until November 2007, the month after the Dow passed 14,000 to reach its all-time high. The economy was all downhill from there. Basel II had the same effect on U.S. banks that Basel I had on Japanese banks: they have been struggling ever since to survive.8


Basel II requires banks to adjust the value of their marketable securities to the "market price" of the security, a rule called "mark to market."9 The rule has theoretical merit, but the problem is timing: it was imposed ex post facto, after the banks already had the hard-to-market assets on their books. Lenders that had been considered sufficiently well capitalized to make new loans suddenly found they were insolvent. At least, they would have been insolvent if they had tried to sell their assets, an assumption required by the new rule. Financial analyst John Berlau complained:


"The crisis is often called a 'market failure,' and the term 'mark-to-market' seems to reinforce that. But the mark-to-market rules are profoundly anti-market and hinder the free-market function of price discovery... . In this case, the accounting rules fail to allow the market players to hold on to an asset if they don't like what the market is currently fetching, an important market action that affects price discovery in areas from agriculture to antiques."10


Imposing the mark-to-market rule on U.S. banks caused an instant credit freeze, which proceeded to take down the economies not only of the U.S. but of countries worldwide. In early April 2009, the mark-to-market rule was finally softened by the U.S. Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB); but critics said the modification did not go far enough, and it was done in response to pressure from politicians and bankers, not out of any fundamental change of heart or policies by the BIS.


And that is where the conspiracy theorists come in. Why did the BIS not retract or at least modify Basel II after seeing the devastation it had caused? Why did it sit idly by as the global economy came crashing down? Was the goal to create so much economic havoc that the world would rush with relief into the waiting arms of the BIS with its privately-created global currency? The plot thickens ...

I've read the protocols long long ago.

Seen the "matrix" which was really slick holyweed diversion of the protocols into the realm of fiction.

"Its only a movie"

appreciate the info on BIS (as usual)

Am I crazy or is all of this designed to harvest awareness and tie it up, breed more of it and farm it like product?

Is the very mind that attempts to unravel this but another link in this chain?

What is released/generated when mind is involved in uncovering what is "hidden"?

Slightly off topic, on the subject of PC.

Simply put, about 8 years ago I married someone who is not a US citizen. We have a beautiful, intelligent 5 year old. The wife was compelled to leave and we chose Canada for the destination. They have been in Canada for about 1 1/2 years now. I'm keeping it simple. So about 2 weeks ago I loaded up a Uhaul and drove 1500 hundred miles north to the border.

We have all seen the bureaucratic mind at work. How following rules, supersedes common sense. I met this full force at the border.

If you fly high above the earth you only see rivers and trees and mountains, strangely, no solid lines separating states and countries. But in our minds they exist.

There was a beautiful young girl waiting at the window while I was being interrogated like a common criminal. I have a passport, I've conformed to your silly rules, haven't I? Not quite.
The woman officer was reading me the riot act for daring to enter the country without the proper "papers" Isn't this Canada I asked? Aren't we joined at the hip?

No we are not!

So now I'm banned from Canada for 1 year, if I try to step back in I will be banned for life. All because I want to join my little family. And the only real victim is that 5 year old sitting at the window wondering where dad is.

Pathetic human beings.

I don't think it's a coinicidence that many of our media and other luminaries get invited to the Playboy Mansion, to fool around with the "playmates" and god knows what else.
Back in their studios or wherever they parctise their particular propaganda, they then make light of prostitution as encapsulated by Playboy and the odious Hugh Heffner.
I short, I agree, there is an agenda here, and the Zionists are primarily behind it. Christians and Muslims seem less keen on these things......

Hey Les, just what is the big black square I see in the comments? What is that? Bugging the shit out of me!
Anyway, we all talk of the big picture and the "joos"
and everything else, and that's cool.
But aside from useless Tea Parties and what not, what does it come down to?
It comes down to your locality and your friends, and
what you are prepared to do.
I watched a youtube deal with a Marine Sargent talking about resistance. I knew there would be this split in the military and here it is with Oath Keepers and all.
Do you think that there will not be a violent
collision here?
Do you think there is an alternative?
I don't think ANY peaceful means will do anything.
I wish it were otherwise, but history tells us different.
This time it will be us fighting the goons who don't fucking know why they attack us, but it will be different in that this time we know what we are fighting for.
During WWII America thought it was fighting the Good Fight, because the same people who are doing the PC thing were doing the propaganda then.
Good Allies----Bad Axis. But we know different.
No Good Guys, period.
Philosophize, ponder, and all that, and that's cool, but what it comes down to is Submit or don't.
Simple. You can choose to fight or not. You in the inclusive sense, not you personally.
People in my neck of the woods are ready for a fight. MLK WAS used for a purpose. He was used to produce the racial divide here, under the pretense
(and good idea at first glance) of "equality".
They used lynching as one of thier talking points,
but left out the part where almost all those lynched were GUILTY of crimes, and there were no
courts in these areas. Also fully one third of those lynched were WHITE people.
The fact that I didn't know this in the 60's when
this was going on, tells me a lot.
MLK didn't know he was being used. HE wasn't aware of how distorted history was being abused
in what he was doing, but the fact is that what resulted from that time has now turned into what the real reason they did it in the first place:
to divide this country up into racial segments.
All about division. Blacks murder whites at an extreme disproportionate rate.
At a statistical level, 0 whites rape black women, while, 20-30,000 white women are raped by black men each year.
Here is the result of the Civil Rights movement.
Again, I don't give a fuck what a persons race is.
I try to go where the facts lead me, period.
To even try to talk about these stats and what they mean is almost impossible, and that was the goal all along. They wanted a divided America, and that's what we are. If you want to talk along the lines of DR. Kevin Macdonalds excellent work, you'e labeled just like he is.
It will be race war, but not because whites want
it, but because it has been manufactured to be that way starting in the 60's. I can't believe you don't know this.
Peace.

I’ve thought about writing this for a long time. The film „The Iron Wall“ about the Palestine/Israel conflict, which I saw recently after finding the link to it here on Smoking Mirrors, gave me the final push.
I’ll make it short and without intellectual quips and windings.

After seeing another film with interviews with still living WWII pilots, I came to the conclusion that even the most hardened of these men felt the deepest of regrets for bombing buildings with red crosses or SOS displayed on the roofs. The events still haunt them today.
A good number of them are even traumatized.

The letters SOS are recognized throughout the world as the international signal of distress.
“Save our Souls”.
I would like to see the Palestinian People use this psychological tool against their aggressors.
Before the people of Palestine are genocided, I beg of them to simply ask the world for help. Everywhere, on every rooftop, wall, flag, sign, vehicle, t-shirt, EVERYWHERE!
The letters SOS must be everywhere, so that no single camera can avoid these letters. The Israelis don’t have that much paint to cover all of them, and when they do, the letters will go up again.
Beat them over the head with their own conscience and shame.

I want Israeli pilots and soldiers seeing this message, doing their jobs and then thinking about what they have just done. I want the Arab Nations to see this message and start standing up for their people. I want children asking their parents what SOS means and I want parents to be stuck for an answer, lest they tell the truth. I want the media covering this phenomenon. I want people the world over to realise what is happing there. A bombed school or hospital with SOS written on it, holds a different power to one without it.

I'm quite sure the effect of these letters are more numerous, than I have outlined here.

It is said “The word is mightier than the sword” so lets use a word that will shame the ones who ignore it.

SOS

The organization= PFP –“ Paint for Palestine”, would be my suggestion.



Please spread this message so that it reaches the Palestinian People.


Greetings
