Some Thoughts On Mail, Comments, Links

I  want to clarify one more time how I deal with reader comments and letters.

1.  I  no longer put an email contact on my blog, because email addresses out there tend to attract huge amounts of spam and become impossible to clean up. They also attract malicious people, who hack and access personal information.

2. If you comment on this blog and I recognize you as a regular reader, I can send you a personal email address to a contact you provide. However, I only tend to do this for regular readers and contributors. Sorry, but there are lots of people who make up email addresses and pose as readers simply to get information.

3. Encryption is a good idea when commenting on this blog or writing to me, because I cannot guarantee that your IP address might not be visible to a hacker or spammer. I don’t track my readers, but someone else might. However, if you actually relish my NSFW writing, you are tough enough and smart enough to take care of any attendant problems.

4. I do reply to emails in my inbox, sometimes long after the fact, I am afraid. But that is the result of having multiples email addresses, a blog that gets attacked, and a day job. If you don’t get a fast enough reply to an email, just post a comment on the blog and tell me not to publish it. I won’t.

5. Please let me know if links are broken on this site or to another site to which I have linked. If you have the time, I would much appreciate any links that you can can get redirected to the new URL of this site, http://lilarajiva.com.

So far, people I have contacted have been very helpful.

There is a wordpress plugin that could help with it: search-and-replace.

6. Pay no attention to contradictory personal information about me on the web. I  rarely sign up anywhere with accurate information and when Google rehashes the public records, the result is quite inaccurate.

7. Whatever I have stated on this blog about my personal experiences with flaming and stalking is hundred-percent accurate. I might not be able to say everything I want, but I am not in this business to mislead.

“Guerilla blogging,” as I call it, or defensive blogging, is meant to protect me from law-suits, not cover up anything.  I am exactly what I say I am: an ordinary citizen, a former academic and teacher, with no connections to intelligence, except in so far as some of my editors might have those ties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This blog is now back up at a new URL

So….. I got sucker punched.

For the last several months, as you probably know, I have been inundated by spam bots, code executing excessively, and other problems that led to my blog being offline most the time. It was up maybe a few hours each month and never in time for me to correct anything.

With that going on, some email miscommunication, oversights by tech support and globe-trotting on my part created what I must admit is a bit of a disaster. My domain was sold. I won’t comment on the blog to which it now directs. But I wonder if there is some connection to the scrapers that were piling on before.

Chief among them was a Russian scraper called Megaindex, which some sites consider shady. But then a lot of bots also disguise themselves, so I have no idea who or what was really behind all of that.

Next thing you know, Godaddy, the mother..or daddy..of all domain-snatchers had gobbled me up. Godaddy is a whole story to itself. But then, my former domain host and its reseller are also now sisters in a huge combine called Endurance International Group. Turns out that Goldman Sachs owns shares in EIG, which bought my host in 2014.

Thrilling any conspiracy fan, that was when problems of access to my cpanel began. In 2016 the bot attacks began. They accelerated into 2017, leaving me afraid they would wipe out the blog itself.

Well, the blog seems to have got through. But the domain is lost, maybe for good.

Also gone, and probably the object of the whole sabot…I mean sale.. were hundreds of links.

Gone are traffic, domain authority, page rank and other important things.

They were disguised and distorted by the spam attacks and by Google, the spy-state’s bff, but they were solid.

The links were my petty proof that I could take a licking and survive.

Ah well.

If I sound stoic, it’s because I am.

This is a war and the prize is your mind. Erasing people from the web, rewriting history, stealing IP (and links are not intrinsic to the domain – they are intrinsic to the blog), are all part of the war.

What does the law have to say about it?

The law, as usual, is a flat-footed copper, opening fire on the victims and letting the guilty off.

The underworld of the internet on the other hand is the dark kingdom of Dr. Moriarty.

It needs Sherlock.

 

 

PETA’s “Animal Ethics” Is Mass Slaughter Of Pets

Excerpted from “PETA’s Death Cult Part III” 

“Ingrid Newkirk has unapologetically described herself as a tyrant: “‘This is not a democratic organization,’ she said. ‘I never pretended that it was. I don’t know where exactly it would go if it were a democracy. And I am not willing to give it a try.’”

One place it might go: towards ending PETA’s mass slaughter of dogs and cats. It’s hard to imagine that every one of her employees feels all warm and fuzzy about working for an outfit that has — in one blood-soaked location — killed 27,561 pets.

Newkirk just hates it when you describe her pet organization as a cult: “I can’t stand to hear that word,” she told Michael Specter of the New Yorker. “If you put that cult stuff in, nobody will take what we do seriously.”

So I’ll let you come up with a word of your own, keeping the following information in mind.

If you intern at PETA’s headquarters in Norfolk, you are expected to condone the killing of shelter animals. On the official application (which you can download here), the only question that requires a response longer than a couple of factual words is:

Have a look at our Web site, review our stance on euthanasia, and let me know if you agree or disagree with it and why.

Now perhaps that means they hope to take in clever interns who disagree with them, so that they might have fruitful and interesting conversations while they tend to the cheerful business of killing animals.

The chances of this are small. They are even smaller than the chances of a healthy kitten surviving PETA’s headquarters. Three percent smaller, to be precise. (Do the math: 97 percent of animals delivered into PETA’s care are summarily slaughtered; hence a kitten does in fact have a 3 percent chance of dodging Ingrid’s hypodermic.)”

Behind #BlackLivesMatter, REVCOM dot US

From  AllNewsPipeline.com:

“According to Wikipedia, the media refers to the Black Lives Matter movement as “a new civil rights movement,” but a look into an organization behind the BLM shows a comprehensive plan by another group who are using the BLM protestors as nothing more than patsies to create a “profound and acute crisis in society,”  with the “goal of revolution and ultimately communism ,” as their endgame plan.

In other words…. to start a civil war.

The organization in question is seen clearly on a Black Lives matter sign held by protesters during a march against the New York City grand jury decision to not indict in the death of Eric Garner, in Oakland, California December 3, 2014, shown below:

BLMREVCOM.jpg

REVCOM.US

The revcom.us website header says “Welcome to the REVOLUTION – The Voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.” The quotes above speaking to creating a crisis in society with the ultimate goal being revolution comes directly from their “New Communist Manifesto,” which is a 100+ page PDF document found here. ….”

….In their preamble they clearly state the need “to defeat and dismantle the forces of the old, oppressive order, and establish the new socialist state,” further stating the ” process and goal which, fundamentally and in the final analysis, can only be achieved on a global scale, with the advance to communism throughout the world”.

Briefly, #BlackLivesMatter, like #OccupyWallStreet and the Million Mask March, is an advertising campaign to sell race-wars and revolution, brought to you from the same people who brought you Pussy Riot, Anonymous, “V” for Vendetta, Wikileaks, #Kony2012 and #JeSuisCharlie…..

Putin: ISIS Funded By G20 Per Russian Intel

From Global Research:

We’ve been very patient. For the last 12 hours we’ve been constantly refreshing Google News for just one — one — western article about Putin’s bombshell comments at the G20 summit in Antalya. You would think that the Russian President stating publicly that ISIS is receiving money from 40 different countries, including G20 members, would be “newsworthy”. Right? 

But the western media has defied even our worst expectations: Not a single mainstream western outlet reported on Putin’s comments. Typically, at least the Daily Beast has the common courtesy to distort or misrepresent the most recent Putin press conference. But in this instance, there is literally no written western record of Putin saying anything about who finances ISIS during the G20 summit in Turkey. This is insane.”

Only cricket chirps from the west

Levels Of Brain-washing

First Level Brain-washing: General Public:

Reaction:

“The Paris attacks were committed unprovoked by Islamicists (ISIS) who hate us (France/America/substitute country name) for our freedoms.”

RESULT: Anger directed against Islamic countries, Muslims, all brown people.

Helps NWO-instigated ongoing psyop called “war on terror.”

Second Level Brain-washing: Informed Public/Activists:

Reaction:

“The Paris attacks were blow-back by radicalized young men who join ISIS, who hate us  (France, America/substitute country name) for attacking them before.”

RESULT: Anger directed against French, American and allied Muslim governments.

Helps NWO-instigated ongoing psyop to dismantle all governments.

Deprogrammed public & activists:

Reaction:

“The Paris attacks were committed by Western intelligence operatives, working with their golem, ISIS and with hired operatives of Western-allied Muslim outfits to instigate public support for more funding for the “war on terror.”

RESULT: Anger directed against Western intelligence outfits and the Western elites who run them.

Obstructs NWO’s continuing psyop on the world, called the “war on terror,” which might better be called the “war OF terror.”

Hint:

Open defecation is a social problem in India and Indonesia, not in Syria. Middle-class Syrian Muslims are not likely to be involved in anything like that.

Conclusion: the “migrants” are operatives.

Note that the CIA has, for several years, been using feces and menstrual blood in its intelligence operations abroad: for example, these “Egyptian feminist” activists, who front for Western intelligence.

[I deleted the link because of the images. You can find them by googling for Egyptian feminists sh** and bleed, or looking up the archives of Reason magazine.]

The secondary benefit Western intelligence agencies derives from the usage of feces and menstrual blood is that the public begins to be habituated to such images in the news, which helps promote genres of porn involving feces and menstruation.

The intelligence agencies are ultimately run by financiers/elites that depend on the global porn trade, so the use of these images can be seen as government-funded advertising to increase big porn’s market-share.

The images also make homosexuality more acceptable, for reasons I needn’t flog.

A further benefit to the agencies is that by running public campaigns against open defecation in Asia, on the one hand, while simultaneously running intelligence operations involving open defecation, on the other, the Western public is conditioned to associate militant brown (“like feces”) Isis operatives with, first, Islam and Muslims in general, and, secondly, with all brown-skinned people, especially South Asians and Indians.This conflation helps transform rational debate over immigration into something visceral and racial that solidifies resentment and anger toward all foreigners and thus supports imperial aggressions.

Lack of hygiene ( a social and economic problem) becomes conflated with “brown people” (color and race) and these in turn become conflated with attacks against the West leading to the notion of an anti-white foreign invasion generated by the third-world.

Syria, of course, is not a “third-world” country.

The propaganda classic, “Camp of the Saints,” made exactly the same move, conflating impoverished people in Calcutta with a migrant invasion of Europe, and in the process exacerbating white working-class anxieties.

The author, Jean Raspail, is a royalist, but, like all too many who fawn on blood-elites, he himself is  working-class.

The Calcuttan slum-dwellers who, in the book, land up in Paris, in the real world, cannot even afford to leave their slum, let alone, Bengal or India.

In the book, the slum-dwellers from Calcutta are uniformly depicted in the most loathsome terms, as perpetually copulating, disease-ridden sub-human monstrosities, swamping the shores of the “beloved city” of France.

The “beloved city” is a phrase from Revelations that actually refers to Jerusalem, so that in Raspail’s white-nationalist supremacist vision, the Christian end-times becomes fused with British Israelism and white Europeans become the “true Israel,” surrounded in the last times by the demonic forces of Gog and Magog, now equated with the third-world.

This is simply sleight-of-hand, intended to distract from the groups actually orchestrating the “clash of civilizations.”

US Trans-Formation: Money, Control, Depopulation

Gender dysphoria is a psychological condition like anorexia.

Like anorexia, gender dysphoria is most likely a result of injured family dynamics or social pressures.

But while anorexics are not given liposuction to appease their anxieties, people with gender identity confusion are given sexual reassignment surgery (SRS).

As one tortured “trans-gender,” who quickly came to regret his transformation, realized, the medical community is making big money from this quack “treatment”:

The recently published WPATH Version VII has simply allowed the medical community to open the “floodgates” for this very tragedy to unfold. To get on cross gender hormones and then have surgery has become almost as simple as going to the convenience store for a pack of gum. If the client [Lila: the word client, instead of patient, is instructive] wants it, give it to them. “Real Life Test”? Maybe, maybe not, depending on your circumstances, occupation, etc. It is a billion dollar industry that thrives on your illness.

Get help. Don’t mutilate your body. The psychiatrist, psychologists, and surgeons will enjoy a wonderful life. You, however, could end up with a tortured life, ending up penniless, possibly unemployed, without family or friends and maybe even homeless. And that’s if you haven’t tried or committed suicide by then! All so you can become the girl you “think” you are inside and wanted to be! People, God or whatever you believe in made you in the correct gender. It is encoded in your very DNA. If you think differently, get real help; but, DON”T CHANGE IT.”

There are several incentives at work here for the ‘trans agenda’:

  1. MONEY: These lucrative surgical and hormonal therapies are a bonanza for the unethical professionals who offer them. Drug companies make big money from them. Meanwhile, the expensive treatments become another burden that tax-payers are forced to pick up, making them more impoverished. The fetishitic and pornographic aspects of trans life-style are also cash cows for the sex industries (pornography, sex-toys, fetish costumes etc).
  2. CONTROL: The advantage of creating another protected class is that it becomes dependent on the government and antagonistic to the general population. Trans activists can thus be successfully used as proxy rulers, snitches, and controllers, to demonize and further destroy heterosexual families. The “trans” agenda helps the government interpose itself intimately into childrens’ lives and makes them destroy family and society from within. The increasing numbers of confused teens drawn into this community become a reliable vote-bank for pro-government policies.
  3. DEPOPULATION: The end-game is to reduce the number of “breeders.”  This is the real goal of encouraging people with psychological issues to turn themselves into guinea-pigs for treatments that have no chance of changing their chromosome-determined sex,  but have a 100% chance of destroying their ability to have children.

 

Thanks To All The People Who Tweet/Link Me

Thank you to all the kind souls who take the time to link, tweet, or repost my pieces.

I appreciate it a great deal, since I don’t have the time to do it myself and am reluctant to get on other forums because of all the crazy stuff I’ve experienced.

Jeff Rense and Henry Makow, both of whom I’ve fingered for running disinformation, overlooked that and still gave me a boost. I appreciate both, though I will still call out disinfo as needed.

I would call out all your names except it might embarrass some of you or cause you trouble, given that this blog isn’t exactly uncontroversial, but you know who you are.

Thanks.

Jeff Rense Link

Jeff Rense, the conspiracy site (which also retails “aliens” and other sci-fi stuff) has linked my piece on Merkel’s Ashkenazy and communist affiliations. I thank him heartily, but warily, since when one gets attention from bigger sites, it often ends up in the services of other agendas, some hostile.

Is November slated for some big-time shake-up (ala the Million Mask March in London) that the powers-that-be have planned and every little dissident voice must be roped in….or not?

No idea. But I see the same link showing up on some fairly racialist/racist sites, below which Indian immigrants are characterized as “shit-skins,” among other epithets.

I suppose it’s all the anti-migrant feeling being fanned by the NWO-orchestrated migrant/refugee incursion into Europe.

To be expected.

Meanwhile, I’m watching that one piece get more hits in one morning than my whole blog sometimes gets in a couple of weeks.month.

Autogynephilia: The Truth Behind “Transgender”

 

Lady in red: Kerry says that many men enjoy female masking but that it's a taboo even among the cross-dressing community“Transgender” as an identity equivalent to a biological male or female is the latest intellectual legerdemain intended to hoodwink the American population.

Some radical feminist bloggers have spotted “transgenderism” accurately as an attempt to erase the notion of biological women in favor of  male autoerotic sexual obsession – autogynephilia –  a condition that is associated, apparently at alarming rates, with sexual offenses ranging from public exhibitionism to rape and murder.

[Note: transgender activists adamantly deny the centrality of autogynephilia to transgenderism and consider it quack science.

As for me, I find it plausible, but not as a medical condition so much as a moral condition.

In my lay opinion, there are no such fixed identities as homosexuals, autogynephiles etc. These are reifications of acts chosen by human beings, under more or less erotic compulsion.

As a Christian, I consider such acts disordered or immoral on the basis of their non-conformity to the injunction to regard our bodies as the temple of God, who appears to favor the missionary posture and reproductive sex over everything else.]

Despite the language of “feminine essence” employed by political activists, it is not female “brain sex” but male fetishism – autogynephilia – that is behind the large majority of transgender cases that develop in adulthood.

Perhaps to disguise this fact, transgender activism has lately become centered on feeding puberty-delaying/suppressing hormones to children who display even the most innocuous divergence from the expected behavior of boys or girls.

In a two-step regime, this blocking is followed with hormone therapy to induce the secondary sex characteristics of the desired sex.

The hormone blockers are the first stage of the treatment, but there’s a second stage that’s possible. Once children have postponed puberty for three or four years, at around age 16 they can choose to begin maturing sexually into the opposite gender, the gender they want to become. To do this, they begin taking the hormones of the opposite sex. For males, taking estrogen at this point will bring on breast and hip growth — and all the attributes physical and emotional of females. The reverse will happen for girls who take testosterone. Spack says this treatment can help make an adult transgender male almost indistinguishable from a biological male in terms of physical appearance.”

But there’s a catch in this gender wonderland:

Taking testosterone or estrogen immediately after blocking puberty will make a teenage patient sterile.”

To repeat  –   transgender therapy following puberty-blocking therapy results in sterile adults who cannot, and will never, reproduce.

How different is this really from Nazi human experimentation?

And who gives either the medical profession or the parents the right to make such monstrous changes in the sexuality of their children?

What irony that people who are so quick to denounce Muslims for female genital mutilation, even of a relatively circumscribed nature, have no problem with destroying forever the fertility of their children.

Fertility, moreover is not adventitious but central to sexuality.

Regardless, the rush is on to swap organs and hormones at will.

One can see why.

With government funding and elite backing, transgenderism and its attendant therapies, surgeries, drug-regimes, social-conditioning, judicial monitoring, legislative framing, and media promotion, make for a huge financial bonanza for the professions, NGO’s, and government agencies involved.

In the UK, the Tavistock and Portman Trust has taken the lead in transgender therapy, which has seen a 75% increase there from 2002 to 2015.

The Tavistock and Portman Trust is a specialist mental health branch of the National Health Service (NHS) of the UK under private control. Note, private control.

It is an off-shoot of the Tavistock Clinic, founded in 1920 to treat shell-shocked soldiers returning from World War I.

The Portman clinic was founded in 1933 to study and treat delinquency.

The Tavistock Clinic and the Portman joined forces in 1994 and then became a foundation trust of the NHS in 2006.

The work of the Tavistock Clinic was expanded by the Tavistock Institute, founded in 1946 with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

It planned to study/assist organizations with an amorphous mandate best described by its own web-site:

(They) integrate different approaches from the social sciences to give our clients a deep understanding of their issues and potential ways forward. (They) bring assumptions to the surface and work with the unpredictable, including what is hidden, and sometimes, unconscious.” [2]

So-called conspiracy researchers are almost unanimous in concluding from this vague jargon that the Tavistock Institute’s real goal is far more subversive and anti-social than its stated one.

Tavistock has become synonymous with mind-control of the masses.

Another of the elite backers of transgender therapy, this time in the United States, is influential billionaire and former US army lieutenant-colonel James (now Jennifer) Pritzker.

Pritzker has publicly admitted that he is an autogynephile, that is, a man who is aroused at the thought of himself as a woman.

Pritzker has also come out publicly as a transsexual, a man who makes himself into a woman through surgery.

Pritzker’s family, one of the richest in the America, owns and operates the Hilton chain of hotels and his own personal net worth is around $1.5 billion.

His extended family’s fortune is over ten times that.

Sadly for its public image, aging male fetishists like James Pritzker are the primary fans of the trans-gender movement.

It has therefore cleverly fastened onto transgenderism in children as a way to diffuse that awkward fact.

But the transgender children end up being paraded by their adult care-takers in a pornified spectacle catering to the same fetishistic males:

The “Transgender Chicken Circuit”, for the uninformed, is a patchwork of media appearances, news and feature articles, talk shows, documentaries, convention and seminar appearances that savvy parents can weave together into a modest cottage industry of transgender child celebrity. Think of it as a Munchausen-marinated transgender version of “Toddlers and Tiaras” whose fans are aging cross-dressing male autogynephiles in possession of both a wistful longing for an unexperienced girlhood, and a generous disposable income. These men are the funders of the agencies and lobbying groups promoting the medicalization of childhood gender nonconformity. The best known example is billionaire financier and lifelong closeted crossdresser (and father of three) James “Jennifer Natalya” Pritzker whose Tawani Foundation single-handedly funds the experimental pediatric transgender drug clinic at Children’s Hospital of Chicago.”

To sum up, transgender activism in the UK (Tavistock) and in the US (Tawani) caters to the sensibilities of adult male fetishists and is both driven and funded by the private foundations (Tavistock and Tawani) of the super-rich ruling elite.

To be more specific:

The Pritzkers, a rich, powerful, and influential family of Ashkenazy Jews, are behind the transgender therapy movement in the US.

The king-pin Ashkenazy Rothschild family and the Sephardic converso Rockefeller family, which merged financial interests in 2012, are behind the same thing in the UK.

The Rockefellers fund a wide-range of political and social programs whose overarching themes are those of what is called the New World Order – feminism, environmentalism, one-world government, sexual license, sterility, abortion.

Those who think that the crypto appellation for the ostensibly Protestant Rockefellers is an anti-Semitic canard should read “The Grandees: America’s Sephardic Elite,” by Stephen Birmingham.

The author cites a book meant only for Jewish eyes that lists older established Sephardic Jewish families in the U.S in order to distinguish them from the post-1848 parvenus, among whom are many of the Ashkenazy banking elites.

Who would expect to find, for example, the Rockefellers in The Book? They are there, along with such old-family members of American society as the De Lanceys, the Livingstones, the Goodwins, the Stephensons, the Ingersolls, the Lodges, the Ten Eycks, the Tiffanys, the Van Rensselaers, the Hopkins, and the Baltimore McBlairs.”

Now a little more about the Pritzker family: Penny Pritzker, the current Secretary of State is Obama’s top fundraiser.

The Pritzker family co-owned the Superior Bank with the New York developer Alvin Dworman (also Jewish) at the time of its spectacular crash from gross mismanagement, a collapse that was the largest of its kind in a decade.

The Pritzkers pretended not to have known anything about the management, even though they collected exorbitant dividends, let the federal thrift insurance fund take a hit of $440 million dollars for the bank’s covered losses, and coming out relatively unscathed themselves.

In short, your typical crony-capitalist hustlers.

Guy Russo’s book, “Supermob: How Sidney Korshak and His Associates Became America’s Hidden Power Brokers,” (2006) describes how Pritzker’s grand-father and great-grandfather became wealthy as tax lawyers for the Chicago mob, the Outfit.

But the Pritzker’s association with crime does not stop there.

It extends to banking with the criminal BCCI bank; CIA ties through the off-shore racket, looting of thrifts; labor racketeering; and sweet-heart deals with the government.

The Pritzkers are allied with another Ashkenazy crime family – the Crowns, according to Christopher Bollyn, citing Sherman Skolnik (h/t to Abel Danger) who says that the Crowns are affiliated with Israeli intelligence and have repeatedly exerted pressure on Obama to attack Iran and to attack researchers on 9/11.

With that bit of background, let’s return to what the Pritzker money has wrought in the realm of transgenderism.

First:

It has funded studies at the Palm Center of  San Francisco State University that urge the military to open its doors to transgendered individuals, despite their elevated risk for suicide and psychiatric illness.

The Palm Center also wants the military (the tax-payer) to subsidize the drug-therapy and surgeries that transgenders might require.

Second:

The Pritzker money funds the Center for Gender, Sexuality, and HIV Prevention at the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

There, younger and younger children are being given hormones that block puberty or bring on opposite sex characteristics that cause irreversible changes, including loss of fertility.

Many of these patients are 14 and younger at the time they give their “consent.”

Ironically, many of these gender non-conforming children would, if allowed to develop, simply choose to act homosexually.

In other words, the transgender activists are demanding that childrens’ bodies conform to their moral/sexual choices about sexuality.

It is not wonder that many homosexuals, lesbians, and radical feminists have found the transgender agenda alarming, although they have erroneously identified the problem as conservative heterosexual conformism.

Even more dishearteningly, the Lurie children’s program is run by an HIV-positive homosexual who admits that he has no idea what the long-term result of hormonal interventions will be, but nonetheless has few qualms about using confused children and their anxious parents as guinea-pigs in his quest for glory.

It is hard to understand in what way this odious project is different from the human experimentation of Nazi scientists, who also induced sterility in their victims.

Moreover, adult transgenderism is not associated by medical researchers with opposite sex identification (or same sex interest) in children, although some activists have created a narrative that argues as much.

Adult transgenderism is linked most obviously to autogynephilia, a behavioral addiction that, unchecked, can lead to obsessive cross-dressing at one end of the scale, and sexual reassignment surgery at the other.

Less remarked is the large number of autogynephiles who commit assaults, rapes, and murders.

Colonel Russ Williams, the commander of a Canadian air-force base,  broke into women’s bedrooms to steal their underwear for years before he raped and murdered two subordinates.

A cross-dressing fetishist, he routinely masturbated in his victims’ undergarments after his crimes and meticulously recorded everything for his future gratification.

Serial killer Ed Gein, the inspiration for the horror films, “Psycho” and “Silence of the Lambs,” was obsessed with creating articles of clothing from the sexual organs of his victim.

In the minds of these injured males, wearing women’s clothes is equated with wearing women’s skins and sexual organs….a male erotic fantasy that they enjoy as males, not females.

Far from being a case of “women hiding in men’s bodies,” as the media presents it, autogynephilia is a case of men hiding in  men’s bodies, and in the case of a related erotic fetish – female masking –  men hiding in women’s bodies.

Autogynephiles remain men intent on mimicking the appearance of women to enhance their sexual experience as men.

They “wear” their victim/target’s appearance/clothes in order to erase the women outside them – real biological women – in favor of their own narcissistic and erotic mimicry.

In that sense, the autogynephile is not becoming a woman, as he would like us to believe.

He is consuming or assimilating woman-hood to complete his self-contained and injured masculinity.

By definition, autoeroticism – like porn – is fundamentally at odds with other-directed, reproductive, biological sex, although it can parody it grotesquely.

That is to say, transgenderism is sterile in theory as well as in practice.

And this sterility coincides with the stated objective of the New World Order to eliminate or reduce reproduction, which is why it is being promoted vigorously by the establishment media.

But to observe as much in this increasingly deranged society is to be counted as paranoid and bigoted.

All aberrations must be tolerated by the tolerant society except the aberration of  calling things aberrant.

 

St. Peter Damian On Public Reproof

I was worrying whether I ought to have criticized Pope Francis.

What right have I to judge his faithfulness to Catholic doctrine, when I am not a Catholic and not a regular church-going Christian either and certainly hold a few heterodox beliefs.

But then I came across this letter by St. Peter Damian, who got a lot of criticism for his forthright denunciation of homosexual clerics in his day (1007-1072 AD).

Unlike Pope Francis who famously said, “who am I to judge,” in reference to homosexuals, St. Peter Damian says, “Who am I not to judge…”.

[Christians are not supposed to “judge” (that is, condemn or consign to damnation), but they are explicitly instructed to “judge” in the sense of reprove, when their reproof might be the only means to save someone from more self-destructive actions.]

… I would surely prefer to be thrown into the well like Joseph who informed his father of his brothers’ foul crime, than to suffer the penalty of God’s fury, like Eli, who saw the wickedness of his sons and remained silent. (Sam 2:4) … Who am I, when I see this pestilential practice flourishing in the priesthood to become the murderer of another’s soul by daring to repress my criticism in expectation of the reckoning of God’s judgement? … How, indeed, am I to love my neighbor as myself if I negligently allow the wound, of which I am sure he will brutally die, to fester in his heart?[48] “So let no man condemn me as I argue against this deadly vice, for I seek not to dishonor, but rather to promote the advantage of my brother’s well-being. “Take care not to appear partial to the delinquent while you persecute him who sets him straight. If I may be pardoned in using Moses’ words, ‘Whoever is for the Lord, let him stand with me.’ (Ezek 32:26)” [49]

 

 

NWO Shill Says Forget NWO

One Jake Anderson of Anti-Media says forget about the New World Order  – it’s sophomoric. Deep thinkers, such as Anderson, use sophisticated terms like Deep State….

Oh.

And I thought people used that term to distract attention from the people behind the Deep State.

And to make sure that readers stick with Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Peter Dale Scott (all name-checked in the piece), and the rest of the Anglo-American mouth-pieces making sure that the eyes of 7 billion people world-wide watch only what those activists tell them to watch, repeat what those activists repeat, and listen to them.

Seven billion.

All those interests and voices must be screened out for a dozen or so over-exposed Westerners.

Can propaganda be any more transparent? Is this the best intelligence can come up with?

 

Orthodox Warning About False NWO Opposition

Update 2: 10/13/15

As I’d begun to suspect (see update 1 below), there is something amiss here and despite the correct assessment of disinformation in Western alternative media, the Orthodox Father must himself be looked at with reserve. It turns out, from my research so far, that he was charged by several sources with the abuse of young men and was forced to leave his post for disobedience, without any comment on the underlying charges.

This is not the first serious critic of the powers-that-be who has ended up tarred with sex abuse allegations that are unclear. One doesn’t know whether Podmoshensky was simply slandered in order to discredit him because of his activism or whether he was chosen to disseminate anti-NWO views, because it was known that he was a sexual predator and that would serve to discredit those views ultimately. This is the same issue that rises with Eustace Mullins, who turns out to have had a long interaction with the FBI.  it is the same kind of thing we find in many patriot and right-wing circles, which turn out to be fully in bed with the intelligence agencies.

Yet another instance when a little sense of unease turned out to be predict a larger problem accurately.

UPDATE, September 10, 2015 @ 17:12:01

I see an approving reference to Jonathan Cahn, who has been hyping the shemitah judgment on the US, which several Christian sites have thoroughly debunked, not least for the reason that the Shemitah had to do with a covenanted nation – Ancient Israel – not the US.

The site talks about the dangers of Christian Socialism, identifying it with the red dragon and it talks about the New Age and ecumenism as dangerous.

Fair enough.

But now that people are grasping the idea that there is a fake NWO-resistance, it will not be long before that too is co-opted.

So reader beware.

ORIGINAL POST

It warms my heart to think that there are religious who take the time to understand the nuances of politics and the fake opposition that is deceiving so many anti-war or anti-empire people.

Here, Father Herman Podmonshenksy of Orthodox Australia talks about the real NWO that will rise from the fake anti-NWO resistance.

And, he too sees through Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, and the rest – all theater for the home crowd and smoke-and-mirrors for outsiders:

Harlan K. Ullman, the principal author of the “shock and awe” doctrine and current Chairman of the Killowen Group which advises government leaders, who also writes for the Atlantic Council, a prominent think tank based in Washington DC, warns that an “extraordinary crisis” is needed to preserve the “new world order,” which is under threat of being derailed by non-state actors like Edward Snowden.

http://www.infowars.com/think-tank-extraordinary-crisis-needed-to-preserve-new-world-order/

In an article entitled War on Terror Is not the Only Threat, Ullman asserts that, “tectonic changes are reshaping the international geostrategic system,” arguing that it’s not military superpowers like China but “non-state actors” like Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning and anonymous hackers who pose the biggest threat to the “365 year-old Westphalian system” because they are encouraging individuals to become self-empowered, eviscerating state control.

“Very few have taken note and fewer have acted on this realization,” notes Ullman, lamenting that “information revolution and instantaneous global communications” are thwarting the “new world order” announced by U.S. President George H.W. Bush more than two decades ago.

In a similar article, Brzezinski, a co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, seems to decry the ‘Global Political Awakening’ which “is making the Syrian war difficult”.

http://www.storyleak.com/brzezinski-global-political-awakening-making-syrian-war-difficult/

This is not the first time Brzezinski “denounces” the global awakening:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCWgksGGPQ0

So here we have it all, the plan in plain view – the elites are seen loosing control and their NWO plan derailed  by the rebels – just like in Star Wars.

No dear Orthodox brothers and sisters, it is not that simple. As much as they would like us to believe that this is the case, the real NWO Bush was referring to, when he talked about forging “a new world order where the rule of law, not the rule of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations”, is not about what the think-tank is suggesting, that is just the diversion. The real new world order will come about from this resistance movement that is carefully orchestrated by the same powers of darkness.

Yes, the coming world-wide tyranny under the “current” NWO is to be denounced and its true nature needs to be exposed, but we should not loose sight of what “the other hand” is doing.

Unfortunately every single member of the alternative media that have been warning about the impeding catastrophe, be it Alex Jones, David Icke, Glenn Beck etc, they are all identifying the current elites and the current NWO as the prime “enemy”, and see the resistance movement as the way to conquering it, but they give no thought to the possibility that the whole NWO thing being a diversion for the real NWO George Bush talked about – which will bring about a “more just system”. They all see these sort of news of the elite being defeated as battles won in their long war, not thinking that the victories may not be theirs at all.

It is really hard for anyone in the west, which has been under Catholic and Protestant chiliastic influences for centuries, to really see the deception, and pause for a second and take a look at the whirlpool that sucks everything in. It is hard for them to see the deception because they do not put Christ first, rather they see themselves as fighters for freedom for the sake of freedom, not understanding that the real freedom only comes from God as a gift for righteousness and repentance.

The real NWO is being prepared in secret and will be revealed by bringing the antichrist to the world scene as a liberator from the rising tyranny and coming wars, and will most likely be a leader of this movement of “awakening”. As our Holy Fathers have said, the antichrist will be Orthodox which is why the deception will be complete. He will be Orthodox, but of the World Orthodoxy – the ecumenist Orthodoxy.

Therefore we would like to ask you, our reader, to please take a moment and read some of our other related articles, and if you think that what is written here is true, help spread the message before it is too late.”

 

Replies To Mail

Had a few notes from readers, while I was away.

Thanks to everyone.

I’ll reply in this forum:

  • Reader who asks to send information without posting: I don’t read my email often, so posting will get a quicker reply. You can post anonymously and just use someone else’s computer, if you don’t trust encryption.
  •  Douglas V. has a couple of articles, including an interview. I’ll post them, when I have a chance to read them.
  •  M. asks about archives. Well, they’re accessible now.

Besides the mail, I had a rethink about  my comments about LRC/Mises/Rand and Ron Paul etc.

I am thinking of rewriting more politely some past criticisms of them and of various neocons and liberal/leftists, as well as stalkers and critics.

I’ve always shied away from the Hindu teaching that you should not focus on the negative, feeling that it was some thing wrong in Hinduism.

But as I read the Orthodox fathers, I come across similar teachings about not condemning.

I know they were talking about personal life, not political blogging, which, by it’s nature is confrontational and critical.

But still…

So if you see something changed or modified, I’ve not “gone wobbly” or “covering-up” for people.

I’m just trying to tone down the finger-pointing and make the criticism more peaceable.

Hard for me, being a bit trigger-happy, when I blog.

Back Links and No Follow tags

I happened to look at my back links at a website that monitors these things and found I had over 16,000.

A much larger website with 25% fewer links had a rate of no-follow tags to links of 1.5%.

13.5% of my links had no-follow tags.

A link to my site at Zerohedge (a govt. endorsed conspiracy site) has a no-follow tag behind it.

So also at the popular site, Business Pundit.

And at Christ4ro.com.

In other words, dozens of sites that have links to this blog placed by readers and sometimes by me (I voted for Business Pundit, that’s why there was a link there) have no-follow tags after the links, so I don’t get traffic from them.

Did they take the trouble to do it themselves or is it some kind of web censorship?

When I’m a bit less sleepy (it’s past midnight), I’ll find out more about the other sites that are blocking traffic for me.

Meanwhile, a reader posts and asks me not to publish.

I published, but removed the name.

I need your comments and I need links.

I know people don’t like “getting involved,” but if you don’t, who will?

 

Behind “Tampon Gandhi”: Menstrual Hotlines @ $8/Call

TAMPON GANDHI – A  SCRIPTED BADASS

A Google search of Kiran “Tampon” Gandhi brings up pages and pages of uncritical praise from slick fashion, alternative, political, and media sites, even though, from the comments, most readers have reacted unfavorably.

Nearly every one of these sites applauds Tampon Gandhi as a “badass,” in such uniform terms that the articles must have been scripted.

AZADI.COM AND THE MENSTRUAL HOT-LINE

One such site is Azadi.com, which can be translated as Freedom.com, “freedom” being one of those multi-valent buzz-words typical of New World Order mob-speak.

Azadi.com signals it’s on board the global menstrual revolution, by sticking out the begging-bowl for its cutting-edge “Menstrual Hot-line,” manned by menstrual activists at the cost of $8 a phone-call.

8 dollars in India is a decent amount of money, close to 500 rupees.

The Azadi Toll-Free Menstrual (1-800-3000-2805) aims to fill critical knowledge and support gaps, providing adolescent girls with a trained counselor to learn and discuss menstruation, menstrual health and menstrual management. Given the ubiquity of mobile phones in rural India, the Azadi Menstrual Helpline has the capacity to bring information to thousands of girls.

Each call costs approximately $8 to service. This includes the cost of training our counselors, manning the lines, and doing outreach activities. If you would like to support this program, click here! here!”

MENSTRUAL MIND-CONTROL COMES TO INDIA

“Menstrual counseling” and “menses outreach”translate to radical feminist brainwashing and recruitment.

Now, the Indian government already has innumerable rural health schemes of all kinds, quite apart from the work of religious and secular charities.

So, the new, tax-subsidized, one-world government-backed, initiatives exist only to take tax-dollars and donations from Indian citizens on one hand and guilt-ridden Westerners on the other to fuel their parasitic existence.

It’s the most extraordinary chutzpah and immorality for the Crony-Corporate One-worlders (aka “international community”) to demand donations from ordinary people, crushed by the burden of taxes, the depreciation of their savings,  and the evisceration of their economies, all of which have been orchestrated by the very same people now trundling out Indian villages girls to pan-handle on their behalf.

“NON-PROFIT” AS A MARKETING GIMMICK FOR FOR-PROFIT SCHEMES

As I wrote earlier, these “non-profits” have “for-profit” investors lined up for miles behind them.

A few clicks on the web-site of  Azadi.com take us into the Byzantine world of Health NGOs’ and non-profits:

AZADI.COM has for its partners,

VILLGRO, PATH, WATER AID, IMPACT ENGINE, and WASH UNITED.

Deconstructing just two of these is enough to establish that the Menstrual Hot-line links back to the Globalists.

VILLGRO.COM

1.VILLGRO.COM has a web-site replete with globalist buzz-words (eco-system, thrive, sustainability – all of which are worthy enough in their own right, except that they are perpetually exploited to sell one-worldism.)

One of VILGRO’S initiatives is called “UNCONVENTION.”

“Unconvention” partners with

(among many other)

TIE (Indus Entrepreneurs), IIM- Ahmedabad, ASHA IMPACT (“Tampon” Gandhi’s family’s foundation), and the BRITISH COUNCIL..

These names represent the quintessence of academic respectability and knowledge-capital in the UK and India.

PATH

Azadi’s next partner is PATH.

PATH describes itself as “driving transformative innovations to save lives.”

Their slick website suggests why a single phone-call in India – capital of cheap cell-phones and free VOIP services – should need $8 bucks to back it up.

After all, a typical cell call in India might be a few cents and VOIP calls are often free.

A click on PATH’s “Executive Leadership” explains the high-cost:

PATH’S executives are all involved with the Centers of Disease Control or other initiatives of the US Govt, or with international health bodies like UNICEF, or with the Gates Foundation and its vaccine programs, or with Microsoft.

USG, CDC, AND MICROSOFT BEHIND  MENSTRUAL HOT-LINE?

These ties suggest that the US Government and its corporate cronies, rather than some humble charity, is the ultimate beneficiary of the Menstrual Hot-line promoted by Asha Impact and its partners and advertised so slickly by Kiran “Tampon” Gandhi.

There is certain to be a surveillance angle to all this, considering that the current allegedly nationalistic Modi Government (with its suspicious courting of the Saudi government) is also pushing a gargantuan, privacy-shredding DNA profiling program onto the entire Indian sub-continent.

Proof That Free-Bleed Marathon Was A Stunt

Previous Related Posts:

1. The Kotex-Industrial Complex I Another Indian Stooge

2. The Kotex-Industrial Complex II

3. The Dynamics Of the Humanitarian-NGO Racket

1. Kiran Gandhi claims that she ran the marathon without a tampon to bring awareness to her “sisters” in poor countries who have no access to tampons.

But there are no links to any charities or organizations that supply tampons to the poor on her web-site. If she really did it for the poor, wouldn’t she have a link on her site?

2. The only organization that is mentioned by Gandhi is THINX. Thinx is a private company created by her friend, Miki Agrawal, a serial entrepreneur, who has a book accompanying it.

Forbes and major media have given a lot of play to Thinx, which doesn’t happen to your usual drum-playing recent Harvard MBA.

The title of the Forbes piece is a give-away.

It runs, “Can these panties disrupt the $15 billion feminine-hygiene market?”

The word ‘DISRUPT’  is a favorite with the NWO ruling elites. You will see it repeated often. Sometimes these words are used innocently by people unaware of their potency. But when the word “disrupt” comes with the backing of Forbes and front groups for the Royal family, you can label it a ruling-class meme.

Gandhi is in the music business (she is a professional drummer).  Gandhi’s mother and father are prominent figures in international financial and NGO circles. Thinx and the Gandhi family’s philanthropy, Asha Impact,   are both involved with AfriPads, a tampon distribution outfit in Africa.

The “free-bleed” stunt is a way to push THINX and its related companies and to allow the Gandhi family foundation (which is a front for Rothschild interests, as I have shown above) to profit.

3. The extensive coverage of menstruation in the major media in the past year is proof that the Western ruling elite is seeking to enter the lucrative feminine hygiene market. Compare this to the high number of Indian beauty queens who cropped up at international levels in the 1990s, when the Western ruling elite was entering the Indian luxury goods market.

4. Photos of Kiran Gandhi at a TED talk show that she is already a voice for the ruling elites. TED talks are a prominent elite venue. She is promoting “Atomic living,” which is another way of talking about synchronicity, the notion of “finding your bliss” by “going with the flow” (notice the pun) of events.  Those are major New Age/New World Order themes. They are rehashed Hinduism, omitting the moral and traditional content.

5. The dark patch on Kiran Gandhi’s track-suit was amazingly small for 4 hours of bleeding during exhausting physical effort. It is also amazingly neat. I didn’t see any streaks and runs. How do we know that Gandhi actually had a period at this time?

6. If her point was that having to wear tampons to avoid being a mess in public is oppressive of female agency, then why did she shave her arm-pits when she ran? Let it all hang out.

7. Is training for a marathon for a year the best way to spend your time, if female hygiene in the third-world is really your passion?

8.  Isn’t the most likely result of this stunt that more people will look at ordinary Indian women abroad as disgusting and unhygienic, adding to other attacks on them (partially accurate) on the Internet that have garnered a lot of attention?

9. Isn’t Gandhi speaking for women who would most likely find her behavior repellent themselves?

10. Isn’t Gandhi slandering poor women, who do NOT walk around with blood running all over them? Most poor women use and reuse rags, or use straw, leaves, sand, or ash, or simply lie down for a few days, out of public sight. Rather than representing them, Gandhi is misrepresenting them.

This Bloomberg article, which is also pushing the menstrual meme, gives the game away in a paragraph toward the end. An Indian specialist states that it is the lack of WATER that is the problem in menstrual hygiene, not the lack of things to staunch the flow.

11. In countries, where public hygiene is a serious problem, Gandhi’s message is actually a horrible one.

She’s saying that you can do in public anything you want, regardless of how unsanitary, offensive, or inconvenient it is for everyone else.

Does a country like India or Indonesia, with so many people defecating outside the house, really need this message?

Even in the West, more and more people feel it is OK to litter, spit, breast-feed, pull down their pants, and go topless in public. Reality shows and media are saturated with vulgar exhibitionism. Doesn’t Gandhi just add one more chunk of degradation?

12. With all those appeals to “sister-hood,” what is the real message? Women already receive the larger part of public funding of health in India and the West. Yet, men are ignored when it comes to public health campaigns.

[Note: I  don’t think the tax-payer should be funding health-care at all. Let private companies compete freely, without any subsidies.]

Consider that the first person to develop a cost-effective tampon for the Indian market was a man. That man was shunted aside so that the Indian government and foreign corporations and NGOs could enter the hygiene market with a program of “free” tampons for poor Indian women. The tampons are actually purchased at above-market rates from Western companies, and the government then distributes them through Western NGOs to the poor. That means, the Indian tax-payer is actually paying Western companies to undercut local Indian businesses for a sham humanitarian venture that actually puts money in the pockets of the ruling class (see links above).

13. Kiran Gandhi has written publicly that she is interested in pornography.

? You know, we’ll just talk about things that matter to me, for example, like feminism and pornography and just like weird things that I like and just kinda see where they’re at with it. I live for these conversations.

Her website (which I won’t link) contains a video, which she says was made to empower women who are terrified by men exposing themselves in public. Her idea of empowerment is making a porn video of the subject. This connects her to the menstrual porn that is being distributed by the CIA, via so-called anti-Islamicist activists affiliated to Pussy Riot.

These supposed acts of disruption are actually advertisement for new genres of pornography.

That link is very clear from reading through Gandhi’s website and from the interview cited in the link above.

That interview ends this way:

So, if I were a piece of art, I would want it to be some sort of gender-funk performance art that make people question the way they view their own world.”

[Of course, there was no “gender-funk” in the optics of the London Marathon. Kiran Gandhi SHAVED her arm-pits, like any other woman subject to traditional beauty norms, Western or Eastern.]

As for the interviewer, if this is the kind of individual being sent to man the guns of gender war in India, god help that country.

Medha is currently a student at Bryn Mawr College studying things like Health, Policy, Sexuality, and South Asia. She spends her free time getting inspired by other brown womyn and dabbling with music. In the near future, she hopes to be working in the Public Health field with a focus on violence against women in India.”

These are the brain-washed tools of elite university campuses who function as the thought-control agents and enforcers of the crippling ideology of modern feminism, the twin-sister of communism.

 

The Dynamics Of The Humanitarian NGO Racket

I want to expose the actual dynamics at work below the surface of “activism” and “social justice.” [I will add links later.]

STEP ONE

The UN and establishment Western non-governmental agencies (aka “international community”), with heavy ties to the Western corporate world and to politicized religious bodies, intervene as HUMANITARIAN ADVISERS in the policies of developing countries (in this case, India), telling them they need a FREE PROGRAM FOR THE POOR or a CRISIS will ensue.

KEY WORDS:

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, HUMANITARIAN, FREE PROGRAM, CRISIS

STEP TWO:

Vulnerable members of the Indian government are either BRIBED or PRESSURED with POLITICAL/ECONOMIC THREATS to go along with the WESTERN PROGRAM. If they are reluctant,  a NEGATIVE MEDIA CAMPAIGN is launched to DEMONIZE India, and POLARIZE it, using SHILLS from the country as spokesmen. A TWITTER MOB is created to enlist support from young people who do not know they are being used. The tools are promoted and rewarded.

KEY-WORDS

BRIBE, PRESSURE, THREAT, MEDIA CAMPAIGN, DEMONIZE, SHILL, TWITTER MOB

STEP THREE

The Indian government succumbs and agrees to the program. Immediately, LOBBIES from politically-connected corporations descend, BRIBES/KICK-BACKS are given to CORRUPT OFFICIALS, and the BID IS RIGGED.   Local companies offering the same product at much lower rates are ignored. The Indian tax-payer is FORCED TO SUBSIDIZE corrupt Western corporations at his own expense.  The Western media sensationalizes the CORRUPTION of the Indian government, while ignoring the CORRUPTION OF ITS OWN CORPORATIONS AND NGO’s.

KEY-WORDS: LOBBIES, BID-RIGGING, KICK-BACKS, BRIBES, CORRUPTION, NEGATIVE MEDIA CAMPAIGN

STEP FOUR

The Indian government then hands out free products to the poor in India, creating a DEPENDENT CLASS and a new VOTE-BANK. The CORRUPT INDIAN POLITICIANS and the CORRUPT WESTERN CORPORATIONS then pat themselves on the back. In the Western media, this is trumpeted as HUMANITARIAN AID funded by the Western NGOs who hand out the freebies, when it is actually AID GIVEN BY THE INDIAN TAX-PAYER TO THE WESTERN CORPORATIONS and NGOs.

Meanwhile, Indian small-businesses that could supply the same need un-subsidized, cost-effectively, and locally are destroyed. Only big businesses with political connections can survive this subsidized competition. Only large corporations can afford to pay for new workers. Enclaves of corporate employment are created in a sea of unemployment.

KEY-WORDS: FREEBIES, DEPENDENCY, VOTE-BANK, TAX-PAYER SUBSIDIES,  UNEMPLOYMENT

STEP FIVE

Western corporate media then sensationalizes this situation as the result of INDIAN BUREAUCRACY and demands further INTERVENTION leading to further PRIVATE-PUBLIC partnerships and further subsidies to Western corporations from the Indian tax-payer.

The NGOs are FRONTED by wealthy cosmopolitan Indians, with strong ties to Western governmental and ruling class interests, which are concealed through philanthropic foundations and charities. The greater part of the money earned goes to the “stake-holders” and administrators’ salaries. With IMPACT INVESTING, the interests are even more clearly private.

The media, owned by corporations, acts as an advertising arm using the humanitarian angle as a marketing tool. What needs are met are met not from the pockets of the investors, but from those of the developing country’s tax-payers and the government’s budget. That means there is no government money left for services to the developing country’s tax-payer. The Western media that is actually RESPONSIBLE for this situation then hypocritically trumpets this as another FAILURE of the Indian government. This becomes the launch-pad for FURTHER INTERVENTION, either “HUMANITARIAN,” or when the country has served its purpose as  a MILCH-COW for the West, for a MILITARY INTERVENTION.

STEP SIX:

BUREAUCRACY, NEGATIVE MEDIA CAMPAIGN, HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION, PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP, MILCH-COW, MILITARY INTERVENTION,

 

Cooling Houses Without Electricity

In places where electricity is not predictable or is expensive, it pays to explore other ways to reduce heat:

1. Use paint that reflects heat on your roof.

Painting your roof white can cut temperatures noticeably, by as much as 10 deg. centigrade. Roof-paint can be simple white-wash, which might need to be reapplied every year or so. Or, you can use paints that are designed to be reflective (high albedo), which are more expensive but last longer.

Hiten Chavda, lead architect of Bio-diversity Conservation India Limited (BCIL) says that over 70% of heat in a building enters through the roof and is heated up quickly, especially by infra red and ultra violet rays of the sun. Building materials being good conductors of heat radiate this to the inside and trap it there. While the rest of the earth cools down after the suns sets, our homes are still warm inside. To combat this, Chavda says, roofs can be painted white as the colour reflects a large part of the sun’s rays back in to the atmosphere, thus reducing the heat absorbed by the building. Temperatures, Chavda says, can differ by as much as 10 degree centigrade between painted and non-painted roofs. To get the best effect, he says, high albedo paint should be used. “High albedo paints are highly reflective and can reduce conductivity of heat considerably. In our buildings, we have found reduced energy consumption for cooling drop by as much as 20%,” he says. Temperature difference before and after painting the roof white. Pic: Yograj S Mudalgi White roofs can even help reduce the ‘Heat island effect’ one of the causes for rising temperature in urban areas. Concrete structures and tarred roads not only heat the surroundings, they also trap it. So urban areas become islands of heat. But with white roofs, more heat is reflected back in to the atmosphere, cities can remain cooler. Naresh Narasimhan, principal architect at Venkatraman Associates, an architectural firm based in Bangalore says it has been long since benefits of painting roofs white have been known. “Not only can they keep homes cooler, if all surfaces in the city are painted white, they will bring down the temperature of the area considerably,” says Narasimhan.Read more at: http://bangalore.citizenmatters.in/articles/2951-paint-your-roof-white-stay-cool-?utm_source=copy

White reflective paint can be used on exterior walls, compound walls, and anywhere else to diminish heat.

 

2. Landscape to block heat:

A few trees around the house can make a huge difference to how much sun gets absorbed by the walls and conducted into the interior. While trees take a while to grow, you can substitute vines, which grow rapidly. 10-15 foot high trellises can be fully covered within 6 months and form an effective barrier against heat. Shrubs can block heat from being absorbed lower down. They too grow fast and are easier to care for than trees.

Cape Honeysuckle does well in very hot climates, can withstand drought after establishment, and grows very rapidly to form a thick bush or a dense vine that gives excellent protection from the sun and vivid color. Its bark is medicinal.

 

3.  Use awnings outside the window and blinds/curtains inside:

It is not common to see awnings in India. Instead, builders usually incorporate concrete ledges that jut out over the window. They need to be combined with outdoor and indoor blinds for maximum cooling.

Exterior bamboo blinds are especially effective.

This eco house in Brazil has aluminum trellises mounted against the walls, on which vines are being grown, keeping the walls protected from the heat.

4. Shade structures in the yard keep the weeds down and provide protection from the sun.

Here are several examples. Living walls (plants grown vertically on a wall) are another option.

5. Grow plants on the terrace in wooden boxes, lined with plastic to prevent water leaking. The mud and foliage absorb heat that would other wise enter the house. Window-boxes also help cool temperatures.

6. Add a roof-structure, solar panels, or even an open water-tank to cool the roof. Inside the house, false ceilings are a possible way to reduce heat.

Update 3: Vikram Gandhi, Kiran’s father, also has this on his resume:

Vikram is also a member of the Bretton Woods Committee, Washington DC, which plays an important role in promoting economic growth, reducing poverty and maintaining global financial stability.”

The Bretton Woods Committee is an annual meeting of  the leading figures of the financial world and the world of international policy-marking.

Gandhi is listed with his financial firm, VSG Capital Advisors.

Vikram Gandhi also leads Asha Impact, a non-profit involved in “impact investing,” which is another trendy term for investing in social uplift schemes, where there is a higher risk involved and a longer term horizon for returns.

 

Update 2: Kiran Gandhi’s father is Vikram Gandhi, an investment banker, whose professional background is described as follows on Wikipedia:

After a successful career in investment banking spanning more than two decades in New York and Hong Kong, he decided to return to India with the desire to actively participate in the development and growth of his country. [3] He also served as Vice-Chairman at Credit Suisse,[4] Co-Head of Global FIG at Morgan Stanley,[5] Country Head and President of Morgan Stanley India, Founding Member of Harvard University’s South Asia Initiative,[6] Co-founder of The Giving Back Foundation, Board Member at India Inclusive Innovation Fund – a US $1 billion Venture Capital Impact Investment Fund and Board of Director at Grameen Foundation appointed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.[7]

He is also the member of Standing Council of experts to assess and make recommendations regarding the international competitiveness of Indian Financial Sector by Department of Finance, Ministry of Finance, Government of India.[8]

Vikram Gandhi and his wife have positioned themselves to profit from the growth in disposable income in the emerging markets.

With their clout in international financial circles, they stand positioned to influence the Indian government’s policies on international financial flows and investment.

There’s free-bleeding here, alright. But it’s not from Kiran Gandhi.

It’s from the Indian economy, the tax-payer (a small and brutalized class in India), small businessmen, and consumers, to Western investors.

“Free-bleeding” is marketing hype and just one more example of MANAGED capitalism at work.

Update 1:

Kiran Gandhi’s mother is Meera Gandhi (who is half Irish). She holds an MBA and is the CEO and founder of the Giving Back Foundation.

Private foundations have long been a favorite tool for the pursuit of long-term financial interests of families, circumventing government taxation and scrutiny.

Here are some of the charities that Gandhi’s Foundation supports:

Gandhi has supported charities with strong female leadership programs and workshops, in part because of the role models in her life: Hillary Clinton, Cherie Blair, and Gandhi’s own mother, an Irish woman living in India. These charities include the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women in the United Kingdom and the Eleanor Roosevelt Leadership Center in the United States.[5]”

and

Other charities Gandhi is involved with either directly or through her Foundation include the Happy Home and School for the blind in Mumbai, the Robert F. Kennedy Centre for Justice & Human Rights, the Cambodian Landmine Relief Fund, Centrepoint, Give to Colombia and The American Friends of Prince William and Prince Harry.[9]

That is the second direct link to the British ruling family (intermarried with the Rothschilds). The first one is Prince Charles’ leadership role in Water Aid, the NGO which was instrumental in making “free tampon distribution” government policy in India.

The Giving Back Foundation lists as its partners and affiliates a powerful group of non-profits (the ones in red are those which struck me the most):

Aid for Aids InternationalAlways Dream FoundationAsha Dan (Mother Teresa’s homes for orphans);  Asha FoundationAsia SocietyAUW (Asian University for Women Bangladesh);  Birch Wathen Lenox School (Aids);  Bono One/Red (Aids);  Boston University (graduate grant programs for travel and work);  Brain Trauma Foundation Brown University;  Cambodia Landmine Museum and Relief FundCancer Patients Aid AssociationCentrepoint (Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry);; Cherie Blair Foundation For Women;   Children’s Hope India in New York City;  Clinton Global Initiative;  Crafts CenterCRY (children’s rights);  Donna Karan’s Urban Zen (connects and collaborates in well-being, preserving cultures and inspiring changes);  Eleanor Roosevelt Leadership Center (ERLC);  FERI (Franklin Eleanor Roosevelt Institute;  Foundation Reach and Heal ProgramGlobal Ovarian CancerGrameen (microcredit financing);  Habitat for Humanity (building homes for the poor);  Happy Home and School for the Blind, Mumbai;  Harrow SchoolHema DoraHip Hop Youth Summit Council (bringing back literacy to young people in the Hip Hop culture);  Human Rights Watch;  I Create (children’s rights);  Indian Merchants’ ChamberInnocence in Danger (for abused children);;  Kalashiri School of ArtsKhel Shala PunjabKids for Kids in Hong KongKilkenny Day Care Center (Alzheimer’s Disease in Ireland);  Lavelle and Co.

ORIGINAL POST

Following up on my previous post about the Menstrual Meme that’s being pushed by the alternative media, I  took a look at the commercial interests behind the scenes.

Which company could be hooked up with the US government  back-stage of the Menstrual Meme?

Kiran Gandhi has come out endorsing “Thinx” (which is apparently the brain-child of another Indian-American, Miki Agrawal).

That’s why Gandhi is determined to raise awareness both of period shaming and lack of access to feminine products in developing countries. She’s now partnering with Thinx, a period underwear company that helps women stay dry while on the go, and AfriPads, which makes low-cost, reusable sanitary pads out of Uganda.”

Thinx donates to Afri-Pads for each sale it makes in the US. Both are attempts to compete for the $15 billion a year female hygiene industry:

In Uganda, Canadian Paul Grinvalds and American Sophia Klumpp believed that a reusable menstrual pad could be manufactured locally. The pad could be made to last a year or more with only hand washing, and be affordable to almost all Ugandan girls and women.

Following a pilot project in early 2009, a Dutch private equity investor saw the business and social potential of the idea. The investor, along with several others, provided the necessary capital—and AFRIpads was born. A.T. Kearney has supported the startup on a pro bono basis ever since.

Today, the company operates two factories with a combined staff of 60 employees, mostly rural Ugandan women, and is in talks to ship products in bulk to major nonprofit organizations, including World Vision, War Child Holland, United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), Rotary International and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). As AFRIpads grows, it plans to build its own distribution network and sell directly to consumers.

The demand for such a product in Africa and across the developing world is undeniable. A recent Credit Suisse economic study finds that 53 percent of the almost 700 million Indian women who earn less than $1,000 per year are likely to spend more money on menstruation hygiene products in the next 12 months, and similar spending trends are expected in China, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

In addition, the “free-bleeding” movement has been pushing LunaPads, which makes reusable products for developing countries and also makes Diva Cups, which the media has been pushing through activist blogs.

When you read LunaPads’ site, you notice that Kofi Annan has endorsed them and that they work with NGO’s in dozens of developing nations:

Since its inception, in partnership with dozens of groups, individuals, and NGOs, Lunapads has helped provide over 14,000 girls and women in 17 nations with over 85,000 menstrual pads and/or menstrual underwear, giving them an immediate, essential and sustainable means to remain in school or at work. In addition to working closely with AFRIpads to support our One4Her program, we are also shareholders of AFRIpads, which has supplied over 500,000 girls and women with their reusable sanitary pad kits.

PADS4GIRLS DISTRIBUTION GROUPS

Pads4Girls has partnered with many different groups over the years to bring washable cloth pads to girls and women in the developing world, including:

So a whole network of influential and well-funded NGO’s distributing free reusable tampons in developing countries is behind the “Menstrual Meme”.
As non-profits, these NGOs encourage the public to donate to what they’re doing, the donations  being tax-exempt.

At the same time, at least one of them – AfriPads, which calls itself a “social business’ – has “shareholders” (people invested in the outfit) who belong to the company (LunaPads) that is selling products at a profit in the West.

Behind AfriPads are wealthy Dutch investors hoping for long-term returns.

Thus the “non-profit,” “social-service” angle acts as an excellent marketing tool for a Western for-profit company that is competing in the market in Asia and Africa, which is why Kiran Gandhi’s face is on the campaign.

Now, why not, if there is such a market?

Nothing wrong, if  these tampon companies were really competing, without the support of a manipulative, possibly intelligence-run campaign, demanding government subsidies and privileged treatment in the Western and Indian market.

How privileged?

Consider that LunaPads claims to be a private outfit, but it’s tied to heavily-subsidized NGO’s and social businesses that are using government and the media to push its interests.

At the same time, the government has been taxing their private competitors (Always and Kotex, for example), as non-essential.

Note: Earlier this year, after public pressure, the UK and Canadian governments both lifted the tax on sanitary products (hitherto described as “luxury” goods).

Now these two companies (Always and Kotex) may indeed be making sub-standard products, but that is for the market to decide.  The larger companies themselves, J&J in India, for instance, have benefited from private-public partnerships. The newer “green” companies are trying to get in, also in partnership with the governments, NGO’s, and international finance.

There’s also another, bigger problem.

On the other side of the equation, local Indian producers, like Arunachal Muruganathan, who put years into developing a cost-effective sanitary napkin that he sells in India, face subsidized competition from abroad and neglect from their own governments:

Muruganantham seemed set for fame and fortune, but he was not interested in profit. “Imagine, I got patent rights to the only machine in the world to make low-cost sanitary napkins – a hot-cake product,” he says. “Anyone with an MBA would immediately accumulate the maximum money. But I did not want to. Why? Because from childhood I know no human being died because of poverty – everything happens because of ignorance.”

He believes that big business is parasitic, like a mosquito, whereas he prefers the lighter touch, like that of a butterfly. “A butterfly can suck honey from the flower without damaging it,” he says.”

But, it seems when the Indian government, which, like Western governments, is now in the feminine hygiene business, set out to look for a partner, they didn’t pick Muruganantham, even though he won national recognition from the IIT’s (the prestigious technology institutes of the public sector) and from the government itself.

Instead, the Indian government picked partners from big business:

According to P C Vinoj Kumar, a journalist who was until recently working for Tehelka, the two major players in the Indian sanitary napkins market are P&G (who own the Whisper brand) and Johnson & Johnson (who own the Stayfree & Carefree brands). He says that the Government will most likely strike a public private partnership with them or a third player, Kimberly Clark Lever (a JV between Kimberly Clark & Unilever).

“What really ticked me off was when I heard that the Government was providing these napkins at a highly subsidized rate. This would mean that it would buy those napkins at a higher cost from elsewhere. What is the need of that, when my technology provides with a similar product at a cheaper price and at the same time generates a lot of rural employment,” says Muruganatham. Muruganatham laments that the newly announced central government scheme apart from involving a lot of corruption, will effectively kill an innovation that has the potential of providing employment to millions of Indians, especially women.”

How did that happen?

As always, the finger-prints of the Western ruling class can be spotted in the whole business.

First came the international intervention, with a foreign NGO’s pronouncement:

The surveys conducted by Unicef with the help of Nielsen India Private Limited and social organisations Vatsalya and Water Aid revealed that over 85% girls used old tattered clothes during menstruation. Almost half of the girls did not even wash the old cloth before using it, while an equal number re-used the cloth several times.”

Checking out Water Aid’s Wikipedia page, I find that it was set up as a charitable trust by none other than the UK’s “water industry.”

The charitable trust structure is the usual  – and legal – method whereby private interests can protect themselves from taxation.

Water Aid’s creation was in response to the UN’s Drinking Water & Sanitation decade (1981-1990) and its first president was Prince Charles, from the ruling Windsor family that is intermarried with the Rothschilds.

Water-Aid could not be any more obviously a face of the global world order.

And it is Water-Aid that has promoted the notion that the Indian government should have a program for free tampons.

That seems to explain why the Indian government didn’t partner with a local actor.

[Note: I don’t believe the government should be in the business of feminine hygiene in the first place.]

Likewise, in Africa, the Western NGOs’ are competing against local small businesses that are supplying the market, as well as against the big foreign brands, on which wealthier women have come to depend:

 Such projects haven’t been snag-free: Komera found Rwandan women were skeptical about the quality of cheap, locally-produced pads which didn’t look much like the imported brands they knew. Laadli has been excluded from the Indian government’s subsidised pads programme..

The Misandric Law

Dadi.org has a great list of the growing list of legal sanctions imposed on men and men alone:

The List of Legal & Social Sanctions Against Men

“. . . . In the ’90s, we’ve entered a phase of “female chauvinism.” You see –and hear — female chauvinists everywhere — in movies, novels, on television and worst of all, in real life.

Such meanness does not go undetected by men.

The word “misandry” (hatred of men), in fact, is insinuating its way into the male vocabulary as a form of protest. Men’s organizations have long argued misandrists always focus on men as violent and abusive, and this has had dramatic effects on a man’s and/or father’s sense of self, their social valuation, and their potential for being criminalized.

Today’s men remain competitively individualistic, despite the growing trends that impose a frightening number of legal and social sanctions against masculinity per se. These sanctions have been initiated under the guise of “protecting” women and children.

Unlike women’s groups of the 60’s, men’s competitive individualism – a valuable quality in the protection of their family – has worked against them in developing the kind of networking needed for combating the criminalization of men as a class.

Sadly, most men will think these legal sanctions are focused on the other (really bad) guy, until they innocently encounter the system. Meanwhile, the misandric legislation is growing by leaps and bounds.

The following list exemplifies the growing body of laws and social sanctions against men:

Domestic Violence (VAWA – clearly unconstitutional legislation):

“A surprising fact has turned up in the grimly familiar world of domestic violence:

Women report using violence in their relationships more often than men. This is not a crack by some antifeminist cad; the information will soon be published by the Justice Department …”

legal representation and support available free to all women, not men.
recantation is not allowed in most jurisdictions
the physically “bigger” individual will be taken to jail

can be alleged and prosecuted via anonymous source

restraining orders are virtually automatic

loss of parental rights for the accused (read Dad)

loss of 2nd amendment rights (gun ownership)

risk of criminal charges and imprisonment

elevation from misdemeanor to felony consequences

does not provide punitive awards for false allegations

Divorce

“few of these divorces involve grounds such as desertion, adultery or violence.

The most frequent reasons given are “growing apart” or “not feeling loved or appreciated.”

(Surveys consistently show that fathers are much more likely than mothers to believe parents should remain married.) ”

legal representation and support available free to many women, or must be paid by the husband/spouse. Not available to men

75% of all divorces are initiated by wives

nearly all divorces are initiated by wives when children are involved

false allegations of child or spouse abuse have become more frequent with presumed guilt issuing to the husband

loss of parental rights for the dad is an 87% probability

family courts can and do negate shared parenting

arrangements agreed to by divorcing spouses,

awarding physical custody to the mom
alimony: can be a lifetime award to the wife after five years of marriage

can mean a lifetime of court appearances and attorneys’ fees

child support awards are arbitrary and capricious,

but at minimum extract 35% of the dad’s net income

– and are constantly reviewed for income increases
loss of home and family is virtually assured for dads.”

Ambassadors For Christ: Mtegemee Yesu

I just discovered Rwanda’s magnificent gospel choir, “Ambassadors for Christ.”

The song is Mtegemee Yesu.

Even in tough times, it says, trust in Jesus.

The subtitles are in English, but even without the translation from Swahili, the meaning comes through.

Rwanda is around 90% Christian, one of the many predominantly Christian African countries that make the continent a new bastion of Christianity, supplanting Europe.

Mtegemee Yesu

1. Mambo mengi yanakupata ndugu….yanayokuumiza moyo Hata ukimwomba Mungu waona…. kama vile amekutenga Maisha magumu shida tupu….. wabebeshwa dunia nzima unapapasa hapa na pale…. bila kuata msaada
2. umeanza kukata tamaa…. imani yako inayumbayumba unajisikia mpweke …..umeachwa kama yatima utokako ni mbali sana…… kiasi kwamba huwezi rudi mbele huendako nako giza….. umekosa matumaini Kiitikio Magumu shida yakupatayo ndugu…. ni ya muda kidogo kamwe yasikutenganishe na yule… rafiki wa kweli Hebu itegemee ahadi yake ….kwamba atakuwa nawe hata kwenye wakati huo mgumu….. mtegemee yesu
3. Umezongwa nazo shida nyingi…. lakini mkumbuke Ayubu Alivyozidiwa nayo majaribu…. alisimama imara Tabu yako imefanywa wimbo…. na waumini wenzako sawa na wale marafiki za ayubu …walivyomcheka
4. Usiruhusu shida yako… ikunyakue mikononi mwa bwana jibu lako ni yeye pekee…. tegemeo na kimbilio hata wenzako wakucheke…. vumilia utayashinda ndugu jipe moyo mtetezi yupo…. magumu atarahisisha

 

Political Zionism Is Esau

Back to Esau and Jacob.

ISIS IS ESAU?

Recently, famed Johns Hopkins neuro-surgeon Dr. Ben Carson has come out with the risible statement that the rationale for Isis is to be found in Genesis, in the tale of Esau and Jacob.

Indeed it is, only not in the way Dr. Carson intends it.

Anyone who has studied the matter with any integrity will immediately identify Esau in today’s world, because no less than the Jewish Encyclopedia has made the identification explicitly.

EDOM IS IN JEWRY

It admits that Esau (under the name of Edom, which means Red) is in Jewry.

That is to say, by the time of Jesus, the descendants of Esau were living as Judeans and Judahites, even though they were neither Jews nor Israelites by birth.

JEWS VERSUS JUDEANS VERSUS JUDAHITES

The word Jew when used to refer to a single ethno-religious community is a coinage from the nineteenth century.

There were no Jews, as we know them, before that time.

When the word Jew is inserted into the Bible, it is an anachronism.

At the time of Jesus, there were only Judahites (those who belonged to the tribes of Judah, one of the twelve tribes descended from Jacob’s twelve sons) and Judeans, people who lived in the kingdom of Judea.

Judea was the southern Israelite kingdom, which had split from its northern half and had gone into and captivity and returned, like its northern sister.

The word Judean does not identify a race any more than the word New Yorker identifies a race.

A New Yorker may be Chinese or African or Italian in ethnic origin. He gets his name from where he lives, not from his racial identity.

So also, the term Judean included people of all kinds of racial make-up, including many who had nothing to do with the original Israelites or Judahites and who were often sworn enemies of them.

ESAU’S HEIRS – THE IDUMEANS (EDOMITES)

One such enemy was Idumea, which is the Greek rendering of the word Edom.

Edom/Idumea is the region where the descendants of Esau lived and dominated  – a strong-hold in the mountains that includes the great city of Petra in Jordan.

As a nation, the Idumeans of Biblical times were the vicious and unrepentant enemies of the sons of Jacob, sacking, looting and attacking them at every turn.

ESAU VERSUS JACOB

God had given foreknowledge of this generational enmity to Rebecca, when Esau and Jacob were still twins in her womb.

He had let her know that the two would engender nations that would struggle with each other and that her second-born would eventually rule over her first-born.

This was prophetic knowledge, however, not predetermination, as Calvinists teach. God in no way forced Esau to play this unfortunate role.

EDOM  – THE RED HUNTER

From birth, Esau was marked for his carnal role.

He was covered with hair all over and reddish (Edom).

He was a hunter, fond of venison, fleshly in appetite, and careless of family tradition and piety.

From the New Testament, we learn that he was also sexually immoral and idolatrous.

From the Book of Jasher, an apocryphal text quoted by Jewish authorities, we learn that Esau was so great a hunter that he killed King Nimrod of Babylon and seized from him the garments that God wove for Adam and Eve when they found themselves naked.

These magical vestments had been passed down from the first family, through Seth, to Noah, to Ham, Cush and then to Nimrod and they bestowed the power of conquest on their possessor.

ESAU, NIMROD, AND ANTI-CHRIST

In Genesis, Nimrod is the legendary warrior-king of Babylon who seeks to challenge the heavens with his mighty tower of Babel.

He is a type of anti-Christ and thus of Satan.

[I will explain in another post why I think the equation with Esau and Satan/Serpent is misleading and dangerous and is one often made by people who have a racist agenda – either against Gentiles (if they are Jews) or against Jews/non-whites (if they are Aryan supremacist) or against whites (if they are black supremacists).

Each of the groups I’ve mentioned likes to equate Esau with whichever group they want to claim is genetically Satanic.

But Esau is not descended from Satan (however he is conceived and with whatever validity).

All of mankind today is descended from Noah, who was considered perfect by God, drunkenness and all.

Esau is  DELUDED by Satan, which is quite a different thing.]

Thus, by association and by the possession of the magic garments, Esau becomes an anti-Christ type (repeat, TYPE) as well.

[Note: The notion that there is a single “anti-Christ” who will oppose God at the end is not even in the Bible, which mentions the anti-Christ spirit, and also, Satan, a red dragon, a beast (two, actually) and a whore (of Babylon), but really doesn’t posit a figure called Anti-Christ, in the modern sense.]

HITTITES, CANAANITES, AND ISHMAELITES

According to the Book of Jasher – which, keep in mind, is apocryphal and part of Rabbinical lore and not canonic – it is after the slaying of Nimrod that Esau sells his birthright for the red pottage (lentils), because, believing absolute power to be in his grasp, he has no use for the mere birth-right.

Not knowing (or caring) that the birth-right includes the honor of siring the Messiah, he chooses instead worldly power and his belly, proving himself unworthy, as God had predicted to Rebecca.

Genesis tells us that Esau disobeyed God’s covenant with his forefathers and intermarried with Hittite women. [The Hittites were the descendants of Heth.]

Esau also intermarried  with the family of Ishmael and with the Canaanites, who practiced such vile customs as child sacrifice and ritual prostitution.

Genesis mentions how much sorrow Esau’s disobedience and his foreign wives caused Isaac and Rebecca. They did not want all they had striven for to be dissipated and lost in the houses of inimical in-laws.

This is no doubt the reason the anxious mother used such wiles to deprive her unworthy first-born of the primogeniture.

JACOB TO ISRA-EL

Jacob, her second-born, was no saint, of course.

He allowed his mother to manipulate him into cheating his father and then engaged in trickery himself against her brother, Laban, also a wily man.

But Jacob, who is described as a “mild” man, was true to his father’s traditions and to the Abrahamic covenant.

He didn’t practice idolatry or intermarry with the vicious Canaanites. So God was able to shape him to his destiny and eventually make him Isra-el – a prince (Isra) of God (El), or by virtue of God.

JACOB AND TRUE ISRAEL

The story of Jacob and Esau is used by St Paul to reprimand Jews who did not want to admit Gentiles into the company of believers in Jesus.

Jacob, he said, was a type of the Gentile believer. Esau was a type of the Jewish unbeliever.

Just as the Jews had the law and racial descent on their side, Esau had the law of primogeniture on his. Yet, Esau was indifferent to his privilege, just as unbelieving Jews were indifferent to the privilege of birthing the Messiah.

Thus, God had given salvation to the “second-born” – the Gentiles, as he had given the birth-right to the second-born, Jacob.

THE CONVERSION OF THE IDUMEANS

But, in a more literal way too, Esau is in Jewry.

By the first and second century before Christ, the Edomites/Idumeans had been forcibly converted to Judaism from their Canaanitish ways.

Many had been circumcised and were indistinguishable from Jews by external appearance.

However,  they were not true Israel, either by tribal descent, nor in their hybrid customs.

They worshiped “they know not what,” as Jesus put it, preferring their own customs and “traditions of men” over the true teachings of Torah.

Many of the Pharisees and Sadducees who attacked Jesus were not Jews by birth, as he himself noted.

JESUS: LEVITE AND JUDAHITE

Remarkably, Jesus was not a Judahite either.

[I have corrected this statement below]

Jesus was a Levite (a descendant of Jacob’s son Levi) on his mother’s side  (since Mary was the cousin of Elizabeth, wife of Zacharaiah, the Levitical priest).

And he was grafted onto the house of Judah (the most famous of Jacob’s twelve sons) on his father’s side.

Thus, he was an Israelite by descent on both accounts.

[Added: Researching this a bit more, I find that the two genealogies – in Mark and in Luke – are taken to be genealogies of Mary, not Joseph, even though Joseph’s name is inserted into them.

This is because Joseph was adopted by Mary’s father, Heli, since he had no sons to inherit his property.

This makes Jesus descend from BOTH the Levitical line (the priestly line) and the Judahite (the kingly line).]

On the other hand, was Jesus NOT a Judean. He lived in Galilee, not Judea.

[Added: However, the Gospels note that he was born in Bethlehem of Judea, which is connected to David and the messianic prophecy.]

IMPORTANT CORRECTION (added 10/8/2015): The House of Judah (as opposed to the tribe of Judah) included Judah, Levi, and Benjamin, so that Jesus DOES belong to both the priestly and the ruling line of Israel, through his mother, which is the descent that makes him a Jew legally.]

THE END OF THE OLD COVENANT

Jesus’s unclear parentage and his residence in Nazareth and Galilee were the reasons why many Judeans did not see Jesus as the Jewish messiah.

Ironically, these skeptics were often not Judahites or Israelites themselves.

They were often Samaritans, Idumeans, and Canaanites.

For instance, the Herodians and Zealots were Idumeans with Idumea’s violent, revolutionary spirit.

It was these Edomite-Jewish rebels who, in the century after Jesus’ crucifixion, provoked Rome into crushing the Jews and destroying the Temple of Jerusalem (Herod’s temple) in 70 AD.

With the end of Temple worship, the Old Testament Jewish world was destroyed once and for all.

This was the judgment of the last days (of the Old Covenant) that Jesus predicted so accurately.

PSEUDO-ISRAEL

The descendants of these pseudo-Jewish Edomites are arguably a major (or substantial) part of the modern Talmudic/Rabbinal tradition that is now regarded, erroneously, as the rebirth of Biblical Israel.

This being the case, since the Idumeans do not descend from Jacob, contemporary Ashkenazy Jews at least cannot be direct genetic descendants of ancient Israel.

Of course, genetics is beside the point.

BIBLICAL ISRAEL

Biblical Israel was always a nation of “promise” and “faith,” first and foremost.

In so far as modern Zionists are either Kabbalists/Talmudists who reject Jesus as a blasphemer and reprobate or communists who consider religion a fraud they cannot by definition be true “Israel,” even if they were descended directly from Abraham.

CHILDREN OF THE SERPENT

Jesus made that very point to his enemies when he called them children of the Serpent.

[This term has had its own malign legacy.

Christian Identity and some other groups have taken this to mean that contemporary Jews – a mixed-race of  Euro-Turco-Mongolic people with genetic affinity to the Idumeans – are descended from Satan/the Serpent, which is surely a thoroughly racist and dangerous notion.

But, as I will show in other posts, the imprecations Jesus pronounced on his critics had NOTHING  to do with racial/genetic descent.

They had to do with the absence of faith in the unseen/spiritual kingdom to which he was trying to lead them. 

By accusing them of descent from “their father, the devil,” he was accusing them of moral affinity/moral descent, not a blood-line connection.

It was a moral pronouncement, not a thesis on DNA.

Esau, after all  was a child of Abraham. What did that get him?]

In short, contemporary “Israel” with its blood-line claim is a religious imposter, credible only to people who choose to ignore the very texts from which “Israel” claims authority.

ZIONISM IS ESAU

Zionist Anglo-Israel and the Sanhedrin that has orchestrated her rise to world dominion are Esau incarnate.

They are his spiritual (and likely, genetic) descendants.

They are heirs only in name and not in truth to the religion whose mantle they ostentatiously wear.

Nonetheless, because Isaac did in the end give Esau one blessing, their charade has been allowed its moment in history.

It will collapse soon.

Just as that ancient blessing that Esau cadged was an empty one because its substance had already been taken by the one who knew its worth, Jacob, so also political Zion is an empty spectacle.

The kingdom it seeks today has already met its true ruler…. two thousand years ago.

 

 

Filthy America: Baby Chop Shops

Planned Parenthood Sacrifices Babies & Sells Their Body Parts

http://weaponizednews.com/medical-tyranny/planned-parenthood-sacrifices-babies-sells-their-body-parts/

h/t to Rush Limbaugh for the term, “baby chop shops”

Life News.com:

The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies.

The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.

Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide appropriate medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion or purposefully birthed to “let die.” That would be one of the potential ways Planned Parenthood could produce a “fully intact” baby to sell to StemExpress for research. Most “crunchy” abortion methods would do damage to the baby’s body.

The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact aborted babies.”

Lila: Please note that Planned Parenthood sells itself to the public, which supports it with tax dollars, as a “family planning” outfit that counsels pregnant women. In practice, it is an abortion mill.

Filthy India: Public Defecation And Urination

Update: Since writing this, I’ve had a look at the population density figures in the countries with comparable or higher density population numbers than India and it occurs to me that these numbers tell only one part of the story. While the average population density might indeed be comparable, the actual population density in any given public facility in India is much much greater, because of the utter inadequacy of public infrastructure. That is, there are many many more people lining up for buses, at hospitals, or anywhere else where services are provided by private or public vendors, because of the vastness of the population. That means the situation in India is not strictly comparable to anywhere else.

_______________________

Dirty public urinals, animal waste, holes in the sidewalk, open sewers litter, stench, public defecation.

This is the norm in India.

The cause is not poverty.

Africans are poor, but they are not anywhere as dirty as Indians.

The cause is not crowding.

Tokyo, Amsterdam and many other big cities have high population densities, but are organized and clean. [Correction: However, their population densities are not as high as in India.]

The cause is not solely colonialism or exploitation by the West.

Vietnam, China and many other Asian and African countries have suffered as much under colonization but they are not as filthy.

[Correction: China until recently did suffer from a serious public hygiene problem in many areas.]

The cause   A major cause of India’s public filth is Indian attitudes.

1. Agamic (traditional)Hinduism stresses personal cleanliness and the insides of Indian homes are usually as clean as their owners can afford.

But Hinduism and the thousands of non-traditional and often traditionally proscribed local practices that range from superstition to witchcraft do not say much about civic virtue or public space.

Not In My Backyard is often the default Indian motto.

However, given that the Hindu golden ages produced some of the greatest cities of the world, the problem should not be seen as arising from Hinduism as such, but from the cultural accretions that have deformed its practice in the modern world.

Meanwhile, Muslim neighborhoods, some of the poorest and most congested in India, are also often as dirty.

It is almost always Christian areas or very Westernized ones that are cleaner than their surroundings.

2. Despite the Hindu Reformation of the 19th century, many Hindus still tend to look down on manual labor, and cleaning, especially cleaning human waste.

It is considered the lowest of the low, so no one wants to do it.

Christianity, on the other hand, has a social ethic that values the human being in every walk of life and values the physical body, which it believes will be resurrected.

It values manual work, since Jesus himself worked with his hands.

Out of this correct valuation of the real world and human relations springs the desire to clean and beautify.

In traditional Hinduism, sringara or beautification of the body and its surrounding is also central, but this aspect of the tradition has been lost to large masses of ordinary people, so it is no use invoking it.

Out of respect for physical creation arises respect for the other man and his property rights.

3. In India, property rights have long been eroded by a socialistic government (imposed by the pseudo-Christian, communistic Zionist Order) that encourages looting by the highest and the lowest class.

Between the two, the Indian middle class has become demoralized and dis-empowered.

4. The masses of ordinary Indians are anti-social toward groups larger than the family.

They do not  – and often cannot –  cooperate and organize to pursue their interests. They are too consumed with the rigors of surviving.

The average India does not not take part in civic organization unless he and his family are personally benefited.

5. Corruption and colonialism have encouraged a slave mentality that accepts things as they are without any serious attempt to change them.

6 The vast expansion of the government and welfare system has broken the connection between work and reward and encouraged criminality and corruption. Essential services are absent. It’s each man for himself.

7. Indians as a group are not self-critical but insecure, trying to ride on past (ancient) glories.

The post-Independence generation has been taught to blame everything on colonization, even when a large part of modern India’s problems is caused by Indians themselves.

8. Indians today are a distressing mixture of braggadocio, insecurity, and fawning, who ape the worst things in the West and ignore the best.

They disdain the best in their own culture and make excuses for the worst.

 

 

Jade Helm: The Drug Connection To China

Previous posts:

Jade Helm: Training, Terror, Or Hoax? (May 2, 2015)

Jade Helm –  Part II (May 3, 2015)

This is my third post on Jade Helm 15, the special forces drill spread out across nine US states that is scheduled to run from July 15 to September 15, 2015.

JADE HELM: THE DRUG CONNECTION TO CHINA

Again, my starting point is going to be the Jade Helm logo and name.  These things are usually carefully chosen and are worth more than cursory examination.

So far, I’ve suggested the following readings:

1. The crossed arrows and upright dagger is the logo of one of the Special Forces, the Green Berets. The Green Berets took their logo from British commandos, who got it from South Africa. (Uncontroversial).

2. The clog in the center symbolizes anarcho-syndicalism and revolution and is also associated with Jewish oppression and suffering, at the hands of the Nazis and Muslims (in the middle ages).

Connecting the Nazis and Islam is fairly typical of neo-conservativism and also, covertly, of left-liberalism.

(Convincing)

3. Jade Helm =  Green Helmet = Nazi helmet (Plausible, not convincing).

I am still dissatisfied with my parsing of this last part:

1. Since  the clog indicates syndicalism and leftist revolution and also evokes Jewish suffering under Nazis and Muslims,  a Nazi interpretation of the term Jade Helm is precluded rather than indicated.

2. The Nazi helmets are described as “apple-green” and sometimes “olive.” Jade might be green, but it’s not really the word you would use in that context.

What is Jade?

Jade is an opaque green stone and has a long association with China.

What is the Chinese angle in all this?

One. Communists run China.

But behind the egalitarian rhetoric, forrmer Chinese Premier Li Peng was and current PM Li Leqiang is at home with the rich and powerful, although whether they are in any way related either to a common family that includes the Hong-Kong plutocrat Li-Kashing  (worth over $35 billion) or to the “New World Order ruling-family blood-line” of Li, as suggested by conspiracy researcher Fritz Springmeier, is too much for me to figure out here.

Secondly, mega investment bank Goldman Sachs, which supplies governments and agencies with officials through out the West,has extended its reach into the state in China.

Goldman Sachs is a leading part of the Rothschild complex of ruling families and financial houses. The House of Rothschild is the architect of the New World Order.

Third, the Chinese holds over a trillion in US debt. The US government cannot meet those claims.

Fourth, received wisdom is that China has overtaken the  US as an economic power.

Just take a look at what Rabbi Cahn’s best-selling book says  – the American century is over; the Chinese century has begun.

China-boosting is very much a part of the Rockefeller/Rothschild New World Order.

And the Chinese recently announced a new economic world order.

Zion is not necessarily centered on Israel. It is more broadly “the kingdom of God on earth,” that is, a humanist/man-created utopia.

Zion,  in what is called British-Israel ideology, is also England’s “fair and pleasant land,” to quote gnostic William Blake’s  “New Jerusalem”.

British-Israel dogma holds that the “lost tribes” of Israel,  the ten northern kingdoms of Israel after the Assyrian invasion, were dispersed and eventually became the nations that now constitute Europe.

In Brit  Israel teaching, the thrones of Scotland and England derive from the House of David and the Anglo-Saxon race is the true Israel.

[This genetic dogma should not be confused with the authentic Christian teaching that believers in Jesus are the “true Israel.” That is a matter of belief and not blood.]

British-American belief and Zionist belief coincide, since the House of Rothschild is also married into the royalty of Britain and it also claims descent from the House of David.

So “the New Jerusalem” can be led as well from Britain (or America) as from Israel.

In fact, Blake’s poem, “Jerusalem” was prominently featured at the London Olympics of 2012, which was clearly meant to be the inaugural ceremony of the New World Order.

There was also the 2012 logo at the Olympics that set off a fire-storm for looking exactly like the word Zion.

The global order, whether neo-conservative and pro-Israel, or liberal-left and anti-Israel, is  Zionist in this British-Israel sense.

Zion in this context is never the heavenly/spiritual paradise of the Gospel, which is a genuine Christian teaching.

The Zionist’ Zion is an earthly, not a spiritual, kingdom.

This Zion  is also the state-less utopia promised to communist dupes after the “proletarian” revolution. The dupes don’t seen through the skin-deep secular language  of communism to its sacred, occult skeleton.

Communism may be godless, but it is a godless religion, with capitalists as devils, workers as saints, Marx as its prophet, and a future classless, gender-less society as paradise.

This is the political and ideological back-ground you need before you understand why Jade Helm has got to refer to China.

Now for the role of China in Jade Helm 15.

In one sentence:

Chinese gangs partner with the drug cartels that control the area of Mexico below the main theater of Jade Helm – 15 in south-western USA.

Arrests last Christmas in the Philippines confirmed that Chinese gangs based in Hong-Kong – called triads – are heavily involved with Mexican drug gangs in the manufacture and supply of methamphetamine (“crystal meth”) for which there is massive demand in the US.

Tightening regulations on access to the precursor chemicals in Mexico and the US and lax regulation in China have given an opening to gangs in Hong-Kong to make money smuggling precursor chemicals, along with Asian gang members, into the West.

It is a lucrative trade, in which a single shipment can bring in $10 billion.

Two triads were named in the raid – “14K” and “Sun Yee On,” both among the three most important in Asia.

The triads are known to have deeply penetrated Hong-Kong and Chinese intelligence and  government with the backing of Hong-Kong’s plutocrats, including, reportedly, Li Ka Shing.

A 1997 Canadian Mounted Police report describes the extent of Hong-Kong and Chinese ownership of Canadian businesses and real estate; their ties to organized crime and to Chinese/Hong-Kong intelligence; and their control of the Canadian financial services industry.

A 1999 Intelligence Assessment by the US Southern Command (SouthCom) warned of the threat posed by Li Ka-shing’s containerized shipping facilities in the Bahamas and Panama. US intelligence services were afraid of the leverage Ka-shing possessed with the Panamanian government because of his business; they warned about his business dealings with the government of Communist China, including the Red Army; and they were certain that he was involved in smuggling drugs.

The report indicates that Li Ka-shing met with then Commerce Secretary Daley at a luncheon hosted by Goldman Sachs on its boat, “The Monkey’s Uncle,” on a Hong-Kong trade trip.

Also present were a who’s who” of organized crime families from Hong-Kong, including Henry Fok of the 14K Triad and Robert Kok, who was allegedly involved in smuggling heroin in Burma and whose son Peter was the business partner of the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (Dem – CA).

Jade Helm: Part II

Previous Post on Jade Helm: 

 Jade Helm 15 – Training, Terror, Or Hoax? (5/2/15).

Jade Helm – Part II

The Symbolism of Jade Helm:

That the clog is a symbol of the Nazi concentration camp has been noted also on the Common Sense Show.

This is helpful, because overnight I was wondering if I was being  paranoid.

So the clog can symbolize anarcho-syndicalism, the French Revolution,  Jewish persecution by Muslims during the middle ages and by Nazis in the 20th century, and also orthodox Sephardic Jews, as I posted earlier.

That connection makes me more confident that Jade Helm could be read as Green Helmet, which is the color of the steel helmets of the Nazi army.

Here’s the Jade Helm logo again:

Special ops: Operation Jade Helm will involve Green Berets and SEALs and special forces from the Air Force and Marines starting in July and lasting 8 weeks

The Reach of Jade Helm:

I wrote before that some of the blogs were getting it wrong about the number of forces being deployed. 1200 is the number only in Texas.

This blog seems to think that that will be the largest number overall in any individual state, but that the largest numbers at any specific time will be in Florida and Mississippi, because the HQ’s of the operation are located there, at Eglin Airforce Base and Camp Shelby, respectively.

Eglin Airforce Base lies about 60 miles east of Pensacola in north-west Florida. Camp Shelby in southern Mississippi is the largest reserve training site in the country.

Most interestingly,  local HQ in at least 3 of the Texas counties involved will be set up at private ranches, two of them being that of Steve Blaylock and of T. Michael O’Connor.

Reportedly, the ranches were volunteered and the owners are not compensated in any way, not even with tax write-offs.

Previous Drills:

There was a large military drill in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the end of March.

On April 11, 2015, armed national guards patrolled a neighborhood in Ontario, California.

Abrogation of Law:

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 had a section providing for the indefinite detention of US citizens on suspicion of terrorism. The provision was reaffirmed by Obama in 2014.

Context of false-flags and black ops

A good article published at Global Research rounds up the various false-flags and black ops that make people wary of Jade Helm. It makes the point that the alternative media is not to be trusted either.

When the Washington Post condemns conspiracy theories by featuring them prominently, the reader is probably wise not to take either the theories or the critics at face-value but to reserve judgment until he understands all the facts for himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fruit of Peace

Ann Diener writes about an early collaboration between Palestinians and Israelis:

According to Wikipedia, “Jewish immigrants to Palestine adopted the Jaffa orange variety from Arab farmers. Partnerships in growing and exporting these oranges was an example of Arab-Jewish cooperation despite rising political tensions.

“By 1939, Jewish and Arab orange orchards in Palestine covered 75,000 acres (300 km2), employed over 100,000 workers, and their produce was a primary export. During World War II (1939–1945) citrus-growing declined, but recovered after the war with the vigorous assistance of the British Mandate authorities.”

“Jaffa oranges are harvested in Israel between November and March, with the marketing season beginning in September and extending through until April. More than half the annual crop is exported, and Israel is a main provider of other citrus fruits to the European Union.”

The Jaffa orange groves were a sign of success of cooperation post the writing of the “Iron Wall.”

Currently, more attention is paid towards the failures that include rockets in Israel and destruction of Arab society in Palestine through warlike activities potentially based on the “Iron Wall” thinking and isolation of Israeli society with the premise that the wall will keep them safe and force the Palestinians into submission with the threat of “enormous suffering.”

What if the solution was found in the exact opposite tactic, one of cooperation to produce success for both sides, like that of the Jaffa orange?

According to the Hope Simpson Royal Commission Report of 1930, “The cultivation of the orange, introduced by the Arabs before the commencement of Jewish settlement, has developed to a very great extent in consequence of that settlement. There is no doubt that the pitch of perfection to which the technique of plantation and cultivation of the orange and grape-fruit have been brought in Palestine is due to the scientific methods of the Jewish agriculturist.”

Therefore, maybe after over sixty years of conflict, the government of Israel should consider former President Ronald Reagan’s famous line, “Tear down this wall,” in their mindset. and try a new, more positively based strategy. Then, maybe we will see a better headline like “Jewish Agriculturalist and Arab Products Create Perfection with Orange,” rather than “Children Terrified and Burnt to Death in Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.”

Men Forced Into Sex More Often Than Women

In a thoroughly documented piece, “Yellow Journalism and the Meme of Rape Culture,” a blogger  takes apart Rolling Stone magazine’s coverage of the University of Viriginia “gang-rape” story to show the incredibly shoddy standards of investigation of many elite (read, left-liberal) news outlets and the biased advocacy that passes itself off as objective reporting.

Rolling Stone has retracted the story and issued an apology but no one has been fired for what amounts to criminal libel.

The agenda behind this, as admitted by the reporter herself, was to find a rape story that was “emblematic” of the rape culture that feminists declare is threatening women on campus.

But as I’ve blogged many times,  this isn’t so.

To find a “rape culture” on American campuses,  you would need to use a broad definition of rape that included seduction with alcohol, fraud, or other means.

I tend to agree with the broadening of what we define as rape, while disbelieving that the criminal justice system is the best place to address any of it.

Both Heather McDonald and Emily Yoffe named the beast that nobody wants to confront: an alcohol-lubricated hookup culture that begins in high school (if not earlier) and turns colleges and universities into rape traps for both women and men.

U-VA President Teresa Sullivan didn’t mention alcohol – not even once – in her November 22 statement about the Rolling Stone report of a gang rape at a fraternity house and her intention to quell sexual abuse on campus.

Yet a 2004 study by the Harvard School of Public Health (Correlates of Rape while Intoxicated in a National Sample of College Women) of almost 24,000 women at 119 colleges found that 72% of campus rapes happened when the victims were so intoxicated they were unable to consent or refuse.”

In this broad sense (but not in the narrow one) there is a “rape-culture”.

Only, today it victimizes men as much, or more, than women, as is the case elsewhere in the world .

Riversong.wordpress.com

“If any unwanted or not fully consensual sexual activity is defined now as rape, then more men then women are victims of rape and most of their victimizers are women.

An article about college students published in the Journal of Sex Research Vol. 31, No. 2 (1994), noted that Muehlenhard and Cook (1988) found that 46% of women and 63% of men had acquiesced to unwanted sexual intercourse, while Muehlenhard and Long (1988) also found that more men (49%) than women (40%) had engaged in unwanted sex. Muehlenhard and Rodgers (1993) found that 34% of women reported having engaged in token resistance to sex, in which they said “no” when they really desired to have sex. US women acknowledge a 55% rate of consent to unwanted sex, which is consistent with the findings of 50% false rape allegations in university studies.

[Charlene L. Muehlenhard, PhD, the author of all those studies, is a Professor of Psychology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Fellow in Three Divisions of the American Psychological Association (Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, Society for the Psychology of Women, Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues), and a Fellow in the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality]

According to a 2014 paper published in the American Psychological Association journal, Psychology of Men and Masculinity, 43% of high school and college-aged men say they’ve had “unwanted sexual contact”, and 95% of those say a female acquaintance was the aggressor.

Researchers found that 18% reported sexual coercion by force (including by use of weapon), 31% said they were verbally coerced into sex, 26% said they’d experienced unwanted seduction, and 7% said they were compelled after being given alcohol or drugs.

Dr. Bryana French, who teaches counseling psychology and black studies at University of Missouri and co-authored the study, says that male victims are often less willing to describe sexual coercion in detail, “but when asked if it happened, they say it happened”.

French said, “Seduction was a particularly salient and potentially unique form of coercion for teenage boys and young men when compared to their female counterparts.”

The Sexual Victimization of Men in America: New Data Challenge Old Assumptions is co-authored by Lara Stemple, Health and Human Rights Law Project, UCLA, and Ilan H. Meyer, Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law.

The authors assessed 12-month prevalence of sexual victimization from five federal surveys conducted, independently, by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2010 through 2012. The review of these surveys provides an unprecedented wealth of new data about male victimization, challenging long-held stereotypes about the sex of victims.

In one of the studies included in the analysis, the CDC found that an estimated 1.3 million women experienced nonconsensual sex, or rape, in the previous year.

Notably, nearly the same number of men also reported nonconsensual sex. In comparison to the number of women who were raped, nearly 1.3 million men were “made to penetrate” someone else. The CDC data reveal that both women and men experienced nonconsensual sex in alarming and equal numbers.

The study also included the 2012 National Crime Victimization Survey, which found that 38% of all reported rape and sexual assault incidents were committed against males, an increase over past years that challenges the common belief that males are rarely victims of this crime.

“These findings are striking, yet misconceptions about male victimization persist. We identified reasons for this, which include the over-reliance on traditional gender stereotypes, outdated and inconsistent definitions used by some federal agencies, and methodological sampling biases.”

The 2011 CDC analysis referred to in the 2014 report found that 6.7% of men (7.6 million) reported that they were made to penetrate someone else, and that 82.6% of male victims of “made to penetrate” events and 80% of male victims of sexual coercion reported female perpetrators, meaning they were raped by a woman, according to the current and broadly accepted definition of rape as any unwanted sexual encounter.

The CDC report’s statistics for the preceding 12 months showed that a higher percentage of men were “made to penetrate” (1.7%) than women were raped (1.6%), such that if you properly include “made to penetrate” in the definition of rape, men were raped by women at least as often as women were raped by men.”

Fatu Kekula: True Survivalist

From the LA Times:

“Fatu had been away at a relative’s home in Grand Bassa County when her father, a 52-year-old administrator at a local clinic, got sick July 29. About a week earlier, he had been diagnosed with typhoid and given a bed that had just been vacated by an Ebola patient in the clinic where he worked.

His wife, Victoria, sent her four youngest foster children away and did her best to care for him, but when he weakened dramatically, with vomiting and diarrhea, she called Fatu home Aug. 3.

Fatu and her sister, Vivienne, took Moses by taxi, 90 minutes on punishing roads, to Monrovia, but no Ebola treatment unit could take him. On the ride back, Fatu made her plan.

“Since I know small, small medicine, I said, ‘God, with my faith I’m going to get my father home, and he’ll survive.’”

She set up a makeshift isolation room in a spare unfinished room outside the house. She bought raincoats, rain boots, chlorine and other supplies. Then she went to work.
I never felt tired. I was fighting for my family and their lives. – Liberian nursing student Fatu Kekula

When she entered her father’s treatment room she put on socks, plastic bags donned like waders, rain boots, four sets of gloves, a coat, a mask and a plastic bag over her hair. He wouldn’t eat. Carefully, she put in an intravenous drip. She poured rehydration liquids down his throat, drop by drop.

She gave him blood pressure medicine, antibiotics, analgesics for his fever and splitting headache. She even gave him an antiretroviral medicine normally used to save the lives of AIDS patients.

“He was restless. I did his blood pressure and it was very low, and I was afraid that he might die,” she said.

Moses Kekula was struggling to breathe, with a shattering headache, aches all over his body.

“I was almost like giving up. I kept praying to survive,” he recalled.

A week later, just as he was beginning to show signs of improvement, his wife became sick. Then the disease struck daughter Vivienne and her cousin, who’d been sent to live with them by his father, a farmer.

Around the clock, one or the other of them would be weakly calling Fatu for help. She dozed 15 minutes here, 30 minutes there.

“It was a bit difficult for me to sleep because all the time they would call me, maybe two of them would call me at the same time. Every time I would go into a dangerous room, I would dress up,” she said.

“The whole virus thing, it’s like carrying a baby in your hands, because it turns them into a child. You have to be sorry for them. You have to put yourself into the shoes of that person and ask yourself, ‘What if it were me?’”

She went through four boxes of surgical gloves, and bags of raincoats. When she took off the clothing, she had to shrug it off carefully to avoid touching the exterior. She sprayed copiously with chlorinated water. She carefully burned all the waste.

She swiftly burned through the $600 in her bank account.
Ebola in Liberia

“My approach was just to treat them based on their symptoms. I never felt tired. I was fighting for my family and their lives. I would do it for other people in the hospital so I knew I could do it for my family.”

On the 18th day, as Alfred’s condition swiftly declined, an ambulance arrived. She watched it depart with her family members, fear gripping her heart. Would she see them again?

“I was worried. I worried a lot because my entire family went there. They had the symptoms of the virus, and the virus had no cure.”

She prayed as hard as she could that their Ebola tests would be negative. All would come back positive.

Outside John F. Kennedy Medical Center, Alfred collapsed, convulsing.

“He said, ‘Aunty, I want to lie down,’” Victoria said. There were no beds inside, so Moses, Victoria, Vivienne and Alfred were given mattresses lined up next to each on the floor. Alfred’s skin became hot, he started bleeding from his mouth, convulsing again.

When Victoria awoke the next morning at 5, she saw Alfred, her foster child, just a yard away on the next mattress, drenched in blood from his head.

“I was afraid to touch him,” she said. “Then I saw he wasn’t breathing.

“I cried. I said ‘It’s a shame on me, because I took somebody’s child, a relative’s child, and he died in my hands.’”

Victoria’s health declined sharply, she began ranting unintelligibly, her skin broke out in a rash. But she would ultimately survive.

After helping her family, Fatu wants to spread hope, passing her knowledge on to other desperate families. She addressed workshops organized by the Ministry of Health, teaching people how to use plastic bags to protect themselves when there’s nothing else.

“I’m going to teach them the things I’ve already done, because I treated four people, and only one died,” she said.

OSINT, espionage, & sedition

A university researcher wrote to me a week or two ago. He asked if I would be interested in a project studying Operation Mockingbird and the CIA’s past and continuing use of the news media (and of social media).

A little research into the researcher showed that he was involved in a website promoting the use of  OSINT.

OSINT is the graceless acronym the government bestows on something called open-source intelligence.

OSINT is public information similar to what this blog uses.

Not just media reports, but links on forums,  government data,  court documents, commentary at blogs and in discussion groups, social media postings.

As long as it’s not confidential (a lawyer’s privileged conversation) or obviously private (a home phone number or medical information), it’s all fair game.

Until “national security” gets involved.

Of course, “national security” is an elastic term that seems to include everything.

The empire’s desire for full-spectrum dominance makes anything in outer – or inner – space part of “national security.”

Now, until I encountered the term OSINT in the past few days, I‘d no idea that what I was doing by chance bears a resemblance to what a whole wing of the CIA specializes in.

I do it because I’ve generally found the major media unreliable (and uninteresting) and the alternative media, while far more interesting,  ideologically biased.

But there’s a catch.

OSINT can get an un-credentialed journalist or blogger into serious trouble.

How serious?

Wikipedia on the dangers of OSINT:

“Accredited journalists have some protection in asking questions, and researching for recognized media outlets. Even so they can be imprisoned, even executed, for seeking out OSINT.

Private individuals illegally collecting data for a foreign military or intelligence agency is considered espionage in most countries. Of course, espionage that is not treason (i.e. betraying one’s country of citizenship) has been a tool of statecraft since ancient times, is widely engaged in by nearly all countries, and is considered an honorable trade.”

So, well-paid mercenaries and meddlesome bureaucrats who provoke international conflicts and break domestic and foreign laws while  spying on foreign countries are patriots, while unpaid citizen-bloggers/journalists trying to deconstruct the dense fog  of corporate-state propaganda to help ordinary people should be shot.

Very rational.

That leads me back to the curious invitation in my mail-box.

If gathering open-source intelligence can in some circumstances be seen as  treasonous, then why the invitation?

Blogging from public sources is one thing. But blogging that is intended to inform an enemy might be another.

The OSINT web-site I saw gave me a hint by referring to an open-source “revolution.

Long-time readers of my blog will probably know  how I feel about “revolutions,” especially those led by what I call techno-utopians.

And sure enough, in the last two weeks it seems that the 45-year-old meme of “open source revolution” has been revived.

Yes, 45 years. That’s how old this “cutting-edge” meme is.

Only now it’s migrated from the soft-ware community, where it began, to the intelligence community.

Going back, the term “open-source” was a spin-off from a community of “hackers” creating what was later called free software at an MIT artificial intelligence lab in 1971.

The word hacker here doesn’t mean anything criminal. It’s a positive word for people who take apart and improve on computer programs for the sheer fun of it and for the good of the public.

At least, that’s the self-portrait.

The developer of free software, Richard Stallings, later worked at Lawrence Livermore lab and won a MacArthur “genius” award.

Lawrence Livermore is a government lab devoted to science and research in the interests of national security.

The cypherpunk group, devoted to developing strong cryptography ,  was the group from which Julian Assange and Wikileaks emerged.

It  included one researcher from the Lawrence Livermore lab, as well as many senior people from Bell, MIT, and Sun Microsystems (among others).

Stallings himself is a strong supporter of free software.

He developed the “copyleft” approach to IP, which allows changes to be made to code by innovators, so long as each innovator in turn allows other users the same freedom.

Copyleft also allows people the freedom to commercialize their innovations.

Stallings is a strong supporter of the hacker collective Anonymous, seeing it as a kind of legitimate “street protest.”

Unknown devices…..

Unknown devices keep showing up under network adapters in my device manager. I keep disabling them and they keep showing up.

They have no signature, no device ID or function, no location or vendor information. They just have the word root and then a number.

Then there’s the comment link on which I accidentally clicked that took me to an empty website. Was someone tying to download something or find my IP address?

My computer got very buggy and slow yesterday. Then my security software keeps turning off.

Worse, there are the unknown devices of my fellow man.

Someone sent me an email at which to contact them. The handle was something like city-slicker@usa.com (not the actual handle, of course).

Now do high-profile people usually have emails with such handles,  and, even if they do, do they give it out to strangers on the web?  Do they insist on contacting you and then insist that you respond only on personal email and private cell numbers?

And then do they comment on this blog using a fake handle?

One with a link on which I accidentally click that takes me to an empty website set up a long while ago?

Methinks I smell a set-up.  Especially when the high-profile one claims to have intelligence contacts/experience.

I could be wrong, of course. In which case, my profound apologies.

But that is why I do not respond except in ways I choose.

And that is why I like to keep it strictly about politics, except for people who have actually intersected with me.

Even then, I tend to be wary.

Anything a stranger needs to tell me can be posted at this blog.

If it’s confidential and has some public importance, disguise the information and post pseudonymously.

If it’s private information, please find a personal friend in whom to confide.

It does you, the reader, and me, the blogger,  no good to confuse web-reality with real-reality.

“Mobs” Ist Edition was 2007, not 2009

I just saw this on Amazon, in a Google search of
“Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets” (Bonner & Rajiva, Wiley, 2007)

Product Details

The 2007 publication date is what ought to be in the catalog, because that is when the first edition, the hardcover, came out.

There are six English language editions, besides foreign-language versions:

1. Hard-cover,  1st edition, August 31,  2007

2. Unknown binding, 2007 (Not sure what this is)

3.  Audible book, October 30, 2007

4. Pre–loaded digital audio, Sept. 1 2008

5.  Kindle,  May 18, 2009

6. Paper-back,  September 8, 2009

By 2009, there  were already five editions.

Yet the sixth version of “Mobs” is listed as the first edition.

And then this first edition is dated at 2009, not 2007.

Technical glitch? Careless mistake?

Or does someone want to revise the date of publication?

Inquiring minds want to know…..

 

 

Voice of the Martyrs: Fraud and Pedophilia?

Michael Wurmbrand is the son of the famous Jewish-born communist, Richard Wurmbrand, who converted to Christianity and suffered extraordinary persecution in communist Romania.

In February 2014, Michael Wurmbrand  wrote to Voice of the Martyrs, the prominent Christian organization founded by his deceased father, to drop their association with his name because of suspected fraud and pedophilia in its leadersip:

My parents died in 2000-2001 and I am now 74 years old.

Against my express request NOT TO DO SO, the mission Voice of the Martyrs of Bartlesville (VOM), Oklahoma, USA and its international affiliates, continue to use Richard Wurmbrand, Sabina Wurmbrand, my parents’ persona, pictures, writings and books, my persona also to obtain your donations!

Tom White, the past Voice of the Martyrs Chairman for more than 20-years, committed suicide in April, 2012, only two to three hours after an accusation of child sexual molestation (pedophilia) of a 10-years old girl was formally filed by her parents with the local police, and while the Bartlesville, OK. police were searching to arrest him. This terrible event made world news. At the time of his committing suicide, Tom White had a $140,000+, plus perks, yearly salary and very substantial travel and expense accounts used in his extensive and frequent international travel year after year. Since the suspected perpetrator was dead, the police closed any further investigation of the sexual molestation. The police chief and the former mayor of the town of Bartlesville, OK. were personally serving on the Board of Directors of Voice of the Martyrs. A few other directors are related to each other or get salaries from the organization.

I asked in writing of the Voice of the Martyrs Board of Directors for an independent investigation, to be undertaken from outside of VOM. The investigation in the famous legal action in England of Jimmy Saville, the BBC children program head while alive, started with only 2 cases BUT there were more than 600 pedophilia complaints after Saville died. In the last 4 years, the state of Arizona, for instance, failed to investigate 6,000 cases of children molestation. Being the son of Richard Wurmbrand, a person of my background and position could have more inside information, than I can discuss publicly. I asked therefore for an independent investigation!….”

This is one more instance of the highest levels of conservative anti-communist circles being associated, rightly or wrongly, with pedophilia.

Here are some other recent scandals in conservative Christian circles.

More here.

Some Protestant foes of the Roman Catholic Church derided Wurmbrand’s ecumenism as a false-front for a New World Order co-optation of Christianity.  (LINK DELETED)

[ADDED: I should clarify that I consider this accusation deluded and semi-litarate.]

It is important to consider that the allegation of pedophilia has not been followed by any public testimony from victims, which is usual in such cases.

There was a third-party statement by a Christian minister in the area to the effect that he had spoken to the father of the alleged victim and was sure that the abuse had taken place.

However, that isn’t evidence.

The minister in question was Wade Burleson,  pastor of the  Southern Baptist Emmanuel Enid church.  In a comment on his blog, defending his unsubstantiated statement, he described his past government affiliations.

Wade Burleson said…

Ken,
I have worked as a chaplain for the Tulsa Police Department (1987-1992), the Garfield County Sheriff’s Department (1992-2012), the Department of Justice (1995), the FBI and DEA special task forces (1995-2012), and have had training in hostage negotiation, criminal interrogation and the like. You can trust me when I say the man on the phone was who he says he is–though not one ounce of my training is even needed to immediately ascertain the truth. Of course, for me to tell you how I know would give too much information that I have pledged to keep confidential.

Tue May 01, 08:27:00 AM 2012

His blog post was addressed to the ten-year old girl and confirmed her abuse, but it didn’t produce any evidence.

The post was reproduced at Christianpost.com, where astute readers faulted it for its theatricality and lack of substance.

[I will add more on this as I research the story.]

The local police-chief who was in charge of the investigation  was  on the board of Voice of the Martyrs  at the time and shut the case down, without disclosing anything further.

The case was closed within a month of the charge, even before the coroner’s office issued a medical report.

That report, shared with the press, showed that VOM chief Tom White died from a mixture of alcohol and prescription drugs.

The quick cover-up of the case can be interpreted either in VOM’s favor (the charges were false and concocted to destroy the organization, so there was no evidence) or against it (the charges were true but hushed up to save VOM).

White took his life before a warrant had been issued, suggesting that he had been tipped off in advance, presumably by Tom Holland, the police-chief.

Holland himself  is facing two cases of discrimination.

He has been ranked 14 among America’s top 100 worst bosses.

Oddly, he was brought into the Bartlesville Police Dept. to clean it up. It had a bad reputation for corruption.

This is significant because city documents show that VOM was on the receiving end of a corrupt subsidy via tax-payers for  improvements that the city had asked it to perform.

There are other questions.

According to its 2008 income tax returns, VOM has gross receipts of over $44,000,000, but spent only around $9 million for services directed for persecuted Christians, which is its stated mission as a non-profit.

That mission is what earns it tax-exempt status from the government.

VOM’s director at the time of the 2008 returns earned a six-figure salary ($140000/year).

Total salaries at VOM in 2008 amounted to over $2,000,000.

One of  VOM’s principals in 2008 turns out to  have been convicted twice for embezzlement.

(I am not naming him or linking the article, since I haven’t researched this personally).

As the Bible says,

Put not your trust in princes nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help…

 

Mark Ames: Ties between Soros, Snowden, Greenwald, Ukrainian Nazis

Mark Ames separates himself from the pack of craven journalists to point out that George Soros is aiding the Ukrainian neo-Nazi coup and he’s also behind Snowden’s treasure-trove of NSA secrets:

Some­how, the same bil­lion­aire who co-financed the “coup” in Ukraine with USAID, also has exclu­sive access to the NSA secrets—and very few in the inde­pen­dent media dare voice a skep­ti­cal word about it.

Lila: Actually, Mr. Ames, there are at least a few of us who have been skeptical of Snowden from the start and have pointed out the tell-tale connections between Julian Assange, Laura Poitras, Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, George Soros and the world of “hacktivism” and  IP-socialism….. with few giving us credit for it.

I have questioned the Snowden story since June 2013 and Assange since 2009. Search this blog.

In the larger sense, this is a prob­lem of 21st cen­tury Amer­i­can inequal­ity, of life in a billionaire-dominated era.

Lila: Well go get a job and write on the side, beholden to no one.

It is a prob­lem we all have to con­tend with—PandoDaily’s 18-plus investors include a gag­gle of Sil­i­con Val­ley bil­lion­aires like Marc Andreessen (who serves on the board of eBay, chaired by Pierre Omid­yar) and Peter Thiel (whose pol­i­tics I’ve inves­ti­gated, and described as repug­nant.) But what is more imme­di­ately alarm­ing is what makes Omid­yar dif­fer­ent. Unlike other bil­lion­aires, Omid­yar has gar­nered noth­ing but uncrit­i­cal, fawn­ing press cov­er­age, par­tic­u­larly from those he has hired. By acquir­ing a “dream team” of what remains of inde­pen­dent media — Green­wald, Jeremy Scahill, Wheeler, my for­mer part­ner Matt Taibbi — not to men­tion press “crit­ics” like Jay Rosen — he buys both silence and fawn­ing press.

Lila: That tells you what Taibbi and the rest were all about…..which is what I said from the start. Check out my comments about Taibbi, plagiarism and revisionism.

.Both are incred­i­bly use­ful: Silence, an absence of jour­nal­is­tic curios­ity about Omidyar’s activ­i­ties over­seas and at home, has been pur­chased for the price of what­ever his cur­rent all-star indie cast cur­rently costs him. As an added bonus, that same invest­ment buys silence from expo­nen­tially larger num­bers of des­per­ately under­paid inde­pen­dent jour­nal­ists hop­ing to some­day be on his pay­roll, and the under­funded media watch­dogs that sur­vive on Omid­yar Net­work grants. And it also buys laugh­able fluff from the likes of Scahill who also boasted to the Daily Beast of his boss’ close involve­ment in the day to day run­ning of First Look. “[Omid­yar] strikes me as always sort of polit­i­cal, but I think that the NSA story and the expand­ing wars put pol­i­tics for him into a much more promi­nent place in his exis­tence. This is not a side project that he is doing. Pierre writes more on our inter­nal mes­sag­ing than any­one else. And he is not micro­manag­ing. This guy has a vision. And his vision is to con­front what he sees as an assault on the pri­vacy of Americans.”

Highly “rational” leftist debates history

In response to a post by Bionic Mosquito at EPJ about the actual violence of anarchists in Spain in the 1930s a gentleman of the name Philip Martin claimed that BM’s linking of anarchist violence to Marx was untenable and tantamount to faulting Jesus for Timothy McVeigh or the Inquisition.
  Martin then claimed that the facts did not support BM’s argument, which he (BM) had supported with reference to literature rather than journalism.
Martin’s post exhibited several logical as well as historical errors, which, I tried rather mildly to set aright:

@Martin

Novels are excellent and often more insightful than what paid hacks and party flacks will write.
In any case, journalists do describe the anarchists as violent.

Even anarchists admit it:

http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/spain/durruti.html

“Here the anarchists, ‘socialists’, Stalinists and the neo-Trotskyists worked together. Moreover, many of the workers attacked their old enemy, the Catholic Church, and convents and some churches were burned down; a few nuns said they had been raped and the Bishop’s Palace and much of the University of Oviedo was destroyed. Several unpopular priests were shot.”

Is Hugh Thomas a good enough expert for you? Read his account.

Having been caught out on the facts, Martin tried to rephrase:

Philip Martin May 22, 2014 at 4:26 PM

Even Orwell, in Homage to Catalonia, mentions the violence visited upon the clergy class at the outbreak of the Spanish civil war. I was not denying that historical event, only questioning the usefulness of using a work of fiction to analyse the complex interplay between less than tight-knit groups orchestrating a revolution. As John Howard (above) notes, religion is, or rather, can be the handmaiden of tyranny. While it’s certainly not justifiable, I can understand the anarchists, and other revolutionaries, at the time punishing the clergy-class after their stalwart defence (aided by Rome, no doubt) of the monarchy and the coup–that is to say, the dictator Franco.

To this vague folderol, I again came back with specifics:

Lila Rajiva May 22, 2014 at 5:04 PM

@Wrong again?
Authoritarianism (not the same as authority) is greatly to be preferred to totalitarianism and has historically been a bulwark against it
Will Grigg:

http://www.advancedchristianity.com/pages/mpc/docs/francisco_franco.pdf

 

This led to an outburst from the “rationalist”  against religious “hocus-pocus”:

Philip MartinMay 22, 2014 at 6:00 PM

It’s difficult to comment on this sort of stupidity. Please talk to a Catalan about Franco before you continue passing off shit articles–based solely in religious hocus pocus–about how he saved anyone. Calling Franco a savior is a new, lower, level of idiocy.

 

The two posts in which I rebutted Martin were not published (as of posting).

But from memory, let me recap what I said.
I argued the following:

1. I hadn’t called Franco a savior. Martin had.
2. I knew many Spaniards and they all felt the same way about Franco.
3. I had used logic and evidence to present my case and had been met with ad hominem, proving BM’s point.

I then cited more sources, including this one:

Blogger arrested for invasion of privacy

A blogger was arrested for invading the privacy of a relative of a political candidate:

http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/17/politics/mississippi-gop-primary-arrest/

“The arrest of a man who allegedly obtained an image of a senator’s bedridden wife has shaken up an already intense Republican primary battle in Mississippi.

Political blogger Clayton Kelly was arrested Thursday, accused of exploiting a vulnerable adult and illegally and improperly obtaining a photo of her without her consent for his own benefit, according to the Madison Police Department.

Donald Clark, an attorney for Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Mississippi, and his wife, Rose, told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper that the woman in question is Rose, saying the Cochrans’ “privacy and dignity have been violated.” Rose Cochran suffers from dementia and has lived at St. Catherine’s Village, the nursing home where Thursday’s incident took place, for 14 years, according to the newspaper.”

The usual suspects will cry foul.  Journalists – even bloggers –  should always be free to say anything they want to about the political class.

On its face, of course, the arrest is a prior restraint, since no one has established the blogger’s guilt in a court of law.

However, this is not the first case of this type. Last year, the Legal Schnauzer blog,  which admittedly published defamatory material, was shut down before a court could adjudicate:

It’s clear that Southern courts are taking an aggressive position on the issue.

Frankly, constitution or not, I can sympathize with the victims. If political bloggers cannot tell the difference between a public issue and a private, they might need a severe shaking-up to find out.

On the other hand, the whole business worries me a lot.

While the first use of the law to pre-emptively discard public speech might be exerted on an obviously unsympathetic figure, it doesn’t follow that every other use will be.

For instance, there was another recent case of an outspoken blogger with powerful enemies being arrested, without a search warrant, for having child-porn on his computer.

Here,  the charges do in fact look trumped up and motivated by resentment of the blogger’s political speech:

These days, with the government privy to every move you make on the Internet, how hard would it be for someone to get a friend in government or a former government employee or contractor to download something onto your computer?

Not very hard, said a counter-terrorism expert I spoke to, although an FBI agent told me the FBI could always determine how any material was downloaded.

Still, if you’re a political blogger, the chances are you don’t want to be relying on the good offices of the FBI to avert a long stay in jail.

Anti-NWO blogger Vadakayil arrested for defamation

I’ve linked Ajit Vadakayil’s often colorful blog here a couple of times. He’s more than somewhat controversial and his language can be over the top but his blogging is in good faith (so far as I can see) so I’ve linked him.

Now comes news that one of the targets of his blog, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, has had him arrested for defamation.

India Today reports:

“A retired Merchant Navy officer has been arrested for allegedly defaming Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his television show Satyamev Jayate on social media. The retired officer – Ajit Vadakayil, 58 – was arrested from Manipal in Karnataka on Thursday, the Mumbai police said.

Vadakayil’s arrest came after a complaint was lodged by the actor. In his complaint, Khan said that “false messages which claimed that donations sought in his TV show were going to a trust working for a particular religion” were being circulated through electronic media.

“Vadakayil was arrested and was immediately granted bail. Today, we filed a chargesheet against him in the court,” a crime branch officer said.

Vadakayil has been booked under relevant sections of the Information Technology Act and for defamation under the Indian Penal Code.

Last month, Aamir Khan had met Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Sadanand Date at Mumbai Police headquarters and briefed him about the “false and malicious messages” being circulated on social networking sites Facebook, Twitter and messaging app WhatsApp were damaging his image and the reputation of his issue-based reality show.

The Cyber Crime Investigation cell had later blocked the content on the website.

Khan, through a social networking site, had said false and malicious messages were circulating through various electronic media, including Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks alleging donations are being sought in his television programme Satyamev Jayate, in relation to an entity by the name of Humanity Trust working for a particular religion.

Khan had said West Bengal’s Humanity Trust had nothing to do with Humanity Trust referred to in the messages.

The actor had also clarified “all donations sought in the show are used and channelised for entirely deserving and secular causes, contrary to the content of the highly mischievous/malicious insinuations in the messages, being circulated by vested and unscrupulous interest.”

Rain-water harvesting: Green living on a Bangalore roof

From Rainwaterharvesting blog, run by a Bangalore couple who are active in the water-conservation and rain-harvesting movement in India:

“Almost all the rain on the building site falls on the roof. In Bangalore it can rain 970 mm in an average year. This meant that our house roof with an area of 100 square metres had 97,000 litres of pure rainwater falling on it. With the idea why allow it to go waste, we started to harvest it? This harvesting was done at many levels.

From the staircase rooftop which had an area of 10 square metres, we placed a Rain barrel and collected the water on the roof itself. A small platform was designed and the 500 litre Rain Barrel placed on it. On the staircase roof we placed a gutter to collect the rain. This came down into a vertical pipe with an end cap called the first rain separator. During the first rain and subsequently when we want to clean the roof or the rain gutter we open the cap and the dusty water flows out through the first rain separator. Then after a ‘Y trap’ rainwater flows in through a ‘dhoti filter’ into our rain barrel. We checked the rainwater quality using a H2S strip test and found the water potable. Sometimes when there is slight contamination we use a method called SODIS (Solar Disinfection) to treat the collected rainwater for drinking purpose. Here you fill a PET bottle with the rainwater and leave it in the sun for 5 hours. The water is now sterilized and can be brought into the house cooled and is ready for drinking. This is not a low cost solution for water treatment but a no-cost solution.  Our annual requirement of drinking cooking water comes from this rain barrel alone.

Rain Barrel

We also have an Ecosan toilet on the terrace. This pan in the toilet separates solids and liquids at source. We collect the urine in a barrel, dilute it and use it as a fertilizer for our terrace garden. The solids are covered with ash every time we use it. This is then transferred to some Blue drums we have kept on the terrace and again covered with earth or straw. We then plant trees in these drums. Trees such as Papaya, lemon, curry leaves, sapota are planted and they grow well. No waste from our toilet on the terrace leaves the roof.

The rainwater falling on the Ecosan toilet too is collected in a 200 litre rain barrel and used for ablution purpose.

We have a box type solar cooker to cook our lunch on the terrace. A solar water heater heats water for bath and for the kitchen. During cloudy days we use a ‘Gujarat boiler’ which uses bio-mass for the water heating. The Gujarat Boiler also generates ash for us to use in the Eco-san toilet. We have planted many trees in front of the house and the twigs and branches from the trees are used for the Gujarat Boiler.

Next we have placed a bathroom on the terrace itself. This also has a front loading washing machine which is one of the most water efficient ones in the market. We collect the water from the bath we have on the terrace bathroom as well as from the washing machine in a small ferro-cement tank placed just below the roof slab. We then pump it up to a planted reed filter to clean up the grey-water using a small pump. The reed filter is Cattails – reeds found in lakes- placed in 4 blue drums. In a fifth drum we have sand and gravel filter to clean up the grey-water further. This treated grey-water is then used for the terrace garden where we sometimes grow rice paddy.  Some extra grey-water is also used for flushing the toilet in the ground floor. No greywater is allowed to go waste.

The rice on the rooftop grows well on even a small area. We place 2 sheets of a pond lining material called Silpaulin with a brick edging. The sheet is then filled with a mix of compost, vermi-compost and red earth up-to a depth of 2 to 3 inches. Rice paddy is then planted in it. The water required for the paddy comes from grey-water alone. For the fertilizer the urine from the Eco-san toilet is used. Kitchen waste which is composted is also added to the soil. We have had productions of paddy to the tune of 1 kg per square meter. We have also found that we can grow 4 crops of rice in a year. Millets can also be grown instead of rice. Vegetables such as tomatoes, brinjals, lady-fingers, chilies all grow on the terrace though the monkeys who frequent this place can also be a nuisance at times.

A small wetland has also been created in a ferro-cement tank where different plants and fishes occupy and clean water.

Solar photo-voltaic panels on the roof provide enough power for us to store in batteries and use to light 11 bulbs in the house. The house incidentally has no fans let alone AC’s thanks to the cool terrace as well as thanks to the trees planted on the sides which enfold it in shade.

A well designed rooftop can provide all the water required for a house-hold, provide energy for cooking , lighting and water heating, provide food-grains and vegetables , enhance bio-diversity as well as absorb all the waste-stream from the house from the kitchen and bathroom / toilets and convert it to reuse .

Female abuse of males: enshrined in Indian law

In light of the hyped-up rape crisis in India, I wanted to repost an old post of mine from 2008 that shows how feminist-inspired laws have only been making gender-relations  worse:

In India, the Old Curry for the Goose is the New Curry for the Gander, April 30, 2008:

“The marriage of Naveen, an engineer in Florida, hit rock bottom in mere five months.

“I just asked her why she was in touch with her boyfriend. She tried to harm herself with a knife. We returned to India and I suggested she stay with her parents for some time. As soon as I was back in the US, she filed a 498-A case against my family and me. My parents were jailed for three days,” said Naveen, a case against whom is on in India and an Interpol Red Corner Notice pending abroad.

Anupama Singh, the secretary of Rakshak that has raked up such cases, said the voluntary organisation has received over 700 such complaints, half of them from the US alone.

“We don’t say all these are genuine cases, but many are. The government is not really concerned. It’s futile to talk about the plight of men and their families by the women they marry.

“In contrast, the cases of women being tortured by their husbands abroad have been overplayed with the government claiming that 30,000 brides — 15,000 from Punjab’s Doab region alone — had been abandoned abroad,” she said.

But in 2005, the government said in Parliament that only 100 such complaints had been received. The ministry of overseas Indian affairs (MOIA) recently revised the figure to 152. The trend, therefore, is more of vanishing brides and abandoned grooms abroad, Singh added.”

Comment

That’s from the Times of India last year, describing the ongoing barrage of domestic abuse of non-resident Indian males (especially high-status, high-earning males)  by their delicately-nurtured, oh-so-domestic, docile, doe-eyed, dosa-making desi brides).

No surprise. Whenever the state starts “doing-good” with its right hand, its left hand has the thumb pressed into the pan of the scales. Dowry laws were cooked up to protect victimized wives.  But after gender feminists got done with the recipe, a new set of victims had been trussed up for carving on the marital altar – husbands.”

Another MBP post from 2008 on the gender-nazis in India:

“Feminastiness: Eastern Men As Oppressive As Westerners,” April 14, 2008

I quote a men’s rights blog from India that satirizes the condition of Indian males (especially doctors and other highly educated men with middle-class or upper-middle class wives).

The blog suggests the following satirical remedies for “oppressed women”:

QUOTE:

2) As soon as a woman marries, she should get 50% rights to her husband’s property.

3) Large scale single parenting by woman (with maintenance provided by husband) is the norm. Research shows that children who are not allowed to see their fathers after divorce for years grow up to be very healthy. In India, Gender Sensitive judges alone should decide if the women should allow the father to see the child after divorce or not. Or if he should ever see them.

4) Any violence committed by woman against others (including murder) should be considered self-defense.

5) The disparity between life expectancy rates in men and women needs to be raised to the levels in developed countries. In India, women live 2.4 years more than men on an average. This difference has to be improved to the levels in the US and Europe where women live more than 6 years than men on an average.”

The writer is especially pungent about the abusive dowry death law, which punishes the man and his family by default:

QUOTE::

7) For any woman who commits suicide within 7 years of marriage, a dowry harassment (or other harassment) case against the husband should be filed by default. He should be imprisoned for at least a year for not taking care of his wife.

If a woman complains of domestic violence, the man should be imprisoned immediately and bail only granted by a court. All their joint bank accounts need to be frozen at once.”

Lila: The author shows how the new gender-roles make the women far more powerful than the husband, both financially and emotionally.

QUOTE:

9) A man must do half of all household work, even if his wife is not working. But he must always work full-time. If he does not, even if he does all house work, he should be labeled lazy, improvident, pathetic, and derelict, certainly in private, and preferably in public where it will cause maximum humiliation and pain either to him or to his relatives. If a woman does not work either outside the house or in, she is nonetheless entitled to all consideration and respect and anything less than deferential treatment of all her needs, demands, whims, and psychiatric moods should be considered a violation of her human rights.”

Lila: Having full control of the husband’s finances and of her time, she thus has the power to entirely control his life, his family and all other relationships.

QUOTE:

10) After marriage, a man must not stay with his parents or allow his parents to stay for a prolonged period with him (”prolonged” to be decided by the woman and subject to revision at any time on request by her, her friends, or her relatives however distant and uneducated). He must allow her in-laws to stay in his house for at least the same length of time his parents stay in his house. If he violates any of these fundamental human rights of a woman, he can be imprisoned for neglect and abuse of his in-laws.

Lila: In some cases, the in-laws stay with her continuously at the husband’s expense, while the husband’s family are kept at a distance. The isolation of the male perpetuates a  system of hidden but intense abuse that would be considered rank criminality if it were to take place between business associates.

QUOTE:

13) The richer and the more educated the men are, the more pressure should be placed on them. They should provide the wife with a lifestyle equivalent to their status….. and they must also spend quality time with family (See 9, 10, 11 above). If this is still impossible, see 12.

14) By definition, Bangalore techies (since they work with software) are required to be softer than others. Since they are also paid more than most, they should deposit 20% of their monthly salary, at least,  in their wives’ names.”

Lila: Finally, the author points out that women who really do suffer abuse in India (usually poorer women) use domestic violence laws far less than the upper class urban sector, where women are increasingly the predators, not the victims.

QUOTE:

19) Since, rural women do not suffer from domestic violence (see 18), domestic violence laws must be used mostly – and most stringently –  in urban India.

Anti-Spy Wear: Modest Swim-Suits Fight the Pornocracy

In an age of universal surveillance and blackmail, involuntary porn, state-mandated voyeurism, mass rape and sodomy of prisonersGoogle-Glass, and citizen-spying, modest swim-wear might be the most astute political statement a woman can make.

It protects her privacy and dignity from snoopers and pornographers, looking for cheap shots, as well as from state operatives and contractors, fattening their files for blackmailing purposes.

I’ve made the connection between surveillance and blackmail many times on this blog and even back in 2004, in essays on virtual crime (used later in Language of Empire).

Alfred McCoy’s recent piece on the subject (cited above) substantiates the accuracy of my analysis.

The making and circulation of pornographic images are powerful tools of the state-corporate complex.

The key role of such images in blackmailing operations that universalize the power of the state is precisely the reason I am less than admiring of theorists who praise the public virtues of blackmail unthinkingly, people like Murray Rothbard and Walter Block.

Check out the Christian blog,  Big-is-Beautiful, for attractive, modern swimwear that is modest….

..that lets a woman be a lady and leaves her physical dignity and privacy intact.

(Here is a list of modest swim-wear made for Jewish ladies; this one is for Muslims).

Jean Raspail: sage dystopia or severe diplopia?

At Zobenigo blog, Jean Raspail’s gloriously muddle-headed dystopia about the destruction of a virginal Europe by inchoate brown masses (the yellow peril recycled) gets a keen rebuttal:
“The reasons for the popularity of Le Camp des saints are easy enough to decode. Here’s the novel’s synopsis from the usual place:

The story begins in Bombay, India, where the Dutch government has announced a policy that Indian babies will be adopted and raised in the Netherlands. The policy is reversed when the Dutch consulate is inundated with parents eager to give up their infant children as it would be one less mouth to feed. An Indian “wise man” then rallies the masses to make a mass exodus to live in Europe. Most of the story centers on the French Riviera, where almost no one remains except for the military and a few civilians, including a retired professor who has been watching the huge fleet of run down freighters approaching the French coast. The story alternates between the French reaction to the mass immigration and the attitude of the immigrants. They have no desire to assimilate into French culture but want the plentiful food and water that are in short supply their native India. Near the end of the story the mayor of New York City is made to share Gracie Mansion with three families from Harlem, the Queen of England must agree to have her son marry a Pakistani woman, and only one drunken Soviet soldier stands in the way of thousands of Chinese people as they swarm into Siberia.

In short, it’s the OYPA — the old yellow peril alarm — all over again.THE OYPA seems a weird beast to me since I have spent all my life being bored with the familiar and seeking out out the exotic as its antidote. I welcome Asian immigration on several grounds: first, the wonderfully zany Indians seem a million times more interesting to me than the predictable familiar boring French, whom I have no reason to love anyway; certainly, on average, Pakistani women are prettier than the English; the food they bring is more tasty; etc.

I therefore cannot fit into my head: why would not everyone else feel the same way?

What is more interesting about Jean Raspail’s brain is that it appears to be internally split: while writing his Dantean yellow perilist visions about foreigners flooding (and destroying) good old France, he simultaneously writes other books of scathing criticism of the very same modern France as a rotten perversion of its former self. He is a monarchist to the core and writes movingly about the spark of divinity which resides in the person of the king; his inviolability and irreplacability; the dire consequences of regicide; the lack of proper legitimacy in the person of a merely elected President; lack of authority; lack of respect for authority; etc. This is not merely a political fantasy: Jean Raspail senses that there is something deeply and fundamentally rotten about modern French (and, more generally, European) culture (about which he is probably right) and seeks its causes in the abolition of the monarchy two hundred years ago (I withhold my opinion).

But then he defends that very same rotten France against subversion by foreigners. Why? If France is rotten, then, heck, why not let it sink?

This is known to psychologists as cognitive dissonance.”

“Language Of Empire” Influences Lankan Human Rights Debate

Lankan minister and eminent writer/teacher Rajiva Wijesinha gave a  thumbs-up to “Language of Empire” in March on Lanka Web.

I couldn’t be more pleased. The minister, a part of the Rajapaksha government, was sent the book by someone who wanted to inform him about the depth of propaganda in the Western media.

Wijesinha, like many others, had been wondering about the manipulation of the international “human rights” agenda (the game of who gets to call what a genocide).

This manipulation has been termed Human Rights Imperialism by Jean Bricmont.

In this case,  the manipulators are the Tamil Tigers and Eelam separatists and their new-found supporters in the West, including Ron Paul’s legal advisor, one Bruce Fein.

The evident purpose of the manipulation is the continuance and augmentation of a covert war on the island….and on India….in an area of great strategic importance to Western interests

….that is not too far from Tamil Nadu with its huge concentration of foreign and domestic corporate interests and its nuclear reactors – one at Chennai and the other at Kudankulam, bordering the ocean, just opposite Sri Lanka. Kudankulam has been the site of intense anti-nuclear activism, which seems to have a covert political agenda and is apparently financed from abroad.

Of-course, India’s nuclear policy itself  seems to have come with foreign strings attached, so there is nothing to choose between the two sides.

Rajiv Malhotra’s “Breaking India” describes this long-term policy and its role in creating, sustaining, and manipulating Dravidian identity politics in Tamil Nadu as part of the creation of a larger Afro-Dravidian identity that has global consequences that play into Western geopolitical goals.

The manipulation of Nicholas Berg’s killing makes for interesting reading from this angle and throws a good deal of light on, among other things, the images of the alleged torture and assassination of Tiger leader Prabhakaran’s son, Balachandra, which became a cause celebre in the strange, seemingly “fanned” anti-Lanka rioting in Tamil Nadu, in March-April.

Wijesinha writes (“Dealing With Allegations of War Crimes,” March 10, 2013, LankaWeb):

“Some weeks back I was sent, by a friend in England, a book entitled The Language of Empire: Abu Ghraib and the American Media. It was by someone called Lila Rajiva, but doubtless that was not the only reason to assume it would interest me.

I took some time to start on the book but, once I did so, it had to be finished. Published in 2005, it is a graphic and convincing account of the manner in which the Americans ignored all moral restraint in the war against terrorism they were engaged in.


Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq

That part was convincing, and simply fleshed out what one knows anyway, that countries in pursuing their own interests will stop at nothing. What was more startling was the suggestion that the wholesale prevalence of this absolutist mindset also represented a takeover of the ruling political dispensation by a culture of chicanery that strikes at the heart of supposedly predominant American values.

At the core of this transformation is the corporate supremacy represented most obviously by Rumsfeld and Cheney, and the takeover of much supposedly military activity by private contractors and special agents, who move with seamless dexterity from one world to another. Exemplifying this, and indicative of what C S Lewis would have described as a Hideous Strength which finds its own partisans dispensable, is the strange story of Nicholas Berg, the shadowy contractor whose beheading served to deflect the story of torture at Abu Ghraib, and in some minds excuse the institutionalized torture that was taking place there.

Weapons of mass destruction

The book should be essential reading for those concerned not just with human rights, but with human civilization….”

Zerohedge: Party Time Over, Fight Club Time Begins

“Water, even when it’s polluted, is the source of life; blood, even when it’s carelessly spilled, is the symbol of life being fully lived. To put his point simply: it’s better to be wet than dry.”

—   Richard Schickel about “Fight Club”

Tyler Durden at Zerohedge says it’s time for the Paul grass-roots to grow out of politics and take their fire to the real world and the real fight: time to become self-sufficient, time to gain financial independence,  time to develop powerful networks, diversify your assets, travel or relocate abroad, if necessary, develop alternative currencies, new trading systems, new banks; counter-economics:

“It has become clear that Benton and others have been “handling” Ron Paul for a considerable portion of his campaign and attempting to divorce him from the elements of the movement which are seen as “extreme” or anti-establishment, even though these are the same elements that catapulted Ron Paul into the minds of average Americans.  My impression is that they have been targeted for surgical removal because they are impossible to co-opt for the purposes of diplomacy (submission) with the Neo-Con elites running the GOP carnival.

Rand Paul’s recent endorsement of Mitt Romney is not surprising given the parasitic nature of particular campaign organizers who buzz about him, including Benton.  The bottom line is that some people in the movement are not in it to fight for freedom, or to ensure a brighter and more Constitutional Republic.  Some are in the movement to further their political careers and ambitions, and are perfectly willing to use the energy of popular candidates to carry them to success.

Sadly, this is the ultimate weakness of the political ideal; regardless of how honest and forthright a candidate is, even a principled luminary like Ron Paul can be undermined by those closest to him if he is not careful.  Millions of people relying solely on the tenuous chance of victory of a single man in a single rigged contest is NEVER a recipe for liberty…..

Stewart Rhodes’ speech at Paulfest was the most shocking for many of the political Paulers, as well as the most necessary.  He removed the kid gloves completely as well as any feel-good rhetoric, stating that the GOP as a party was dead, and deserved to be, letting the Paul folks know that any further strategy of attempting to “infiltrate” the Republican establishment and turn it over to the side of good was a waste of time.  He also stated that it is no longer enough for the movement to play around as “intellectual warriors”, they might soon have to become real warriors.  I agree.

In my speech, I gave clear cut and tangible solutions to Paulfest attendees, including alternative markets and barter networks, commodity based currencies, micro industries and localized business models, useful trade skills, off-grid living, preparedness, and if all else fails, real revolution.  Not idealized intellectual activism under the catchy label of revolution, but fists in the air and rifles in hand revolution.  The kind that scares the crap out of most, not because of its danger, but because of its finality of purpose.  The will to fight, really fight, is frightening, especially to those who cling to the belief that one can reason with his opponents.  The cold hard fact is; some men are not men.  Some men are monsters, and reason is the last thing that will ever sway them…”

Assange & Anonymous: Sock-Puppet Rebels..

Willy Loman has an impassioned plea to forget the “dissent-chiefs” and official revolutionaries on the left (Greenwald, Ellsberg, Hedges, Cole, Chomsky, Goodman, Assange, Anonymous etc.) and on the right (Ron Paul, Alex Jones, Doug Casey, etc.).

Take what’s good in them, but go beyond.

They are reliable on past conspiracies.  Don’t believe them on present ones, unless confirmed by your own analysis. (Hint: If they support Assange and Anonymous, or keep pointing to the approved activists, think twice).

Light your own fire. Think your own thoughts.

And, follow the facts, not the leader.

Willy Loman::

The rolling psyop known as Julian Assange is not done with us just yet.

After serving as the CIA’s front-man for the distribution of phony intel for a couple years (and getting paid well for it) and then living like a king in an English mansion under “house arrest” for 500 days (while the patsy Bradley Manning is in lock down 24/7), now Julian is getting his very own interview based TV show…….

..Julian Assange lives with a globalist billionaire in the heart of the new imperialist England and he’s going to tell us 99%ers what we should be doing and which “politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries” we should trust and follow.

Anyone else see an inherent problem with that?

With yet another economic collapse just off the horizon and the Occupy Spring taking shape and the entire European continent rioting, you don’t think steering the boiling over dissident movement would be something that the CIA, NSA, and the State Department would be interested in, do you?

If a psyop gets any more obvious than Julian Assange, I haven’t seen it……..

Unfortunately as you know there will be those on the dissident left and right who buy into this shit, believe it or not. Let’s see how our old friend Glenn Greenwald writes about it.

“A WikiLeaks press release states, “‘The World Tomorrow’ is a collection of twelve interviews featuring an eclectic range of guests, who are stamping their mark on the future: politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries. The world’s last five years have been marked by an unrelenting series of economic crises and political upheavals. But they have also given rise to the eruption of revolutionary ferment in the Middle East and to the emergence of new protest movements in the Euro-American world. In Julian’s words, the aim of the show is ‘to capture and present some of this revolutionary spirit to a global audience.’””  RT

[Lila: This is exactly what this Peter Dale Scott article at Lew Rockwell is about. It too lists the activists you should pay attention to.  That’s just what prizes are intended to do – focus your eyes on what the globalists want you to focus on. That is how revolution has been co-opted from the start of scientific state propaganda.]

“Does anyone remember how much we trusted al Jazeera English after their great coverage of the Egyptian protests? Anyone getting the feeling that Russia Today is headed down the same path AJ took right after they earned our trust?

The RT article announcing this weekly psyop is hinting that the proven NSA asset “Anonymous” may be one of his first interviews.

The guest list has not been revealed, but it has been hinted that the first guest will be someone controversial. A tweet from the WikiLeaks account asks provocatively, “Any bets on who The World Tomorrow’s first mystery guest(s) are?” It then adds the hashtag “#ExpectAssange” — a play on the Anonymous slogan, “Expect us.” RT

“For those of you who don’t understand how these games are played, I’ll give you an example. If a law enforcement agency wants to get a new man on the inside of an organization, say a mob organization, what they do is they have someone who is already on the inside vouch for him. Someone with “street cred” so to speak. This is the same thing they do when trying to influence movements of different types.

Take for instance the Truth Movement (or what’s left of it). You have a fake “truther” named Jon Gold. His idea of the “truth” of 9/11 is whatever George Bush and Dick Cheney told us… plus.. “foreknowledge”… well, foreknowledge minus insider trading which he doesn’t think took place. Well, you have that guy (which no real Truth advocate believes for a second) write a book and then you get Sibel Edmunds of Boiling Frogs to stand beside him claiming he is the real deal. Then Gold promotes Sibel’s LIHOPy book and BINGO… you have the APPEARANCE of a consensus in the hijacked movement.

See how that works? One fake vouches for another fake. Jon and Sibel = Julian and “Anonymous”

[Lila: To give Sibel Edmonds credit, she is a lot more credible to me than the others. She is after all a brave person and a whistle-blower who has called out a lot of the lazy activism of another very well-heeled, “comfortable” group, Antiwar. Edmonds seems to be reliable until she gets to 9/11 and she falls silent about Hank Greenberg, as do most Republican activists. But other than that, I don’t feel she belongs in this group. I feel she’s been forced to join them.]

In the world of organized crime, this kind of game can be a bit dangerous. In the world of crime fighting this can be very very dangerous. But in the world of dissident movements, what’s the risk? Remember that guy who was busted infiltrating that movement down in New Orleans? What happened to him? Nothing. He went on after he was exposed to start some new assignment and that was the end of it. What happened to Nurse Nariah (whatever her name was) or that guy who pretended to be the “Gay Girl from Damascus” or “Syrian Danny” once they were all exposed?

This is how they work.

Right now we are on the edge of a massive popular uprising and it just so happens that their two most successful psyops are about to go on one of the most respected news outlets left to us to tell us what to do.

Get it?

Assange himself says in the trailer for the show, “Today we’re on a quest for revolutionary ideas that can change the world tomorrow.” RT

oooooo…. Julian himself tells us what to do…. oh I can’t wait… and “Anonymous” will be there too? And it’s on RT? Well hell, that must be legit.

If you notice though, at the end of the RT article, they seem to be presenting a little disclaimer. Turns out RT didn’t produce this CIA/State Department psyop… some “independent” company out of London produced it. I wonder if it is owned by the same globalist billionaire who is letting Julian live in his mansion while under “house arrest”

“A press release for the show, however, emphasizes that it was put together by an independent UK producer and that RT is merely serving as the initial broadcaster. Negotiations are presently underway with other possible licensees, who might broadcast longer versions of the same interviews.” RT

Seems like RT is already making sure they can distance themselves from this psyop even before it launches it’s first installment……

John Young of Cryptome said years ago that he knew Assange and Wikileaks was a CIA honeypot from the start and he was correct.

Now they are trying to cash in on his “street cred”, street cred that was given (“given”.. not earned) him by the likes of Amy Goodman, Glenn Greenwald, and Daniel Ellsberg.If you still that that is a group of true dissidents, I can’t help you.

[Lila: So what does that make Peter Dale Scott who points to the dissent-chiefs?]

All I can say about this State Department infomercial is: Don’t believe it folks and don’t watch it.

Let them know via their own ratings tools that we can’t be fooled by their Disneyesque smoke and mirrors.

The PR and influence peddling institutions think they’re the real power behind this country and time and time again they’re proven wrong but they just keep plugging away telling themselves they are smarter than all of us. They’re not.

If you don’t take the hint from me, take a cue from the RT article… there’s a REASON they posted the disclaimer in their press announcement and the article about the show. RT is trying to tell you something. The reason is… it’s BULLSHIT.

Don’t watch the show. Tell others its bullshit. Make sure Julian and his NSA handlers get the rotten tomatoes ratings they deserve.

No more Syrian Danny no more Gay Girl no more Julian of the Mansion. We’ve outgrown it. We’re tired of the bullshit. That’s it.

This is going to be our revolution and NOTHING they do is going to hijack it.

Whomever he puts on that fraud of a show of his is suspect. Whoever is on that show of his is just as much of a fraud as he is.

We saw through Invisible Children and Kony 2012 in record time (less than a day I believe) and we will see.. through.. this.. too.

No prepackaged heroes, no ready-made leaders. It’s ham-handed and obvious and we are too tired and angry to fall for this shit.”

Paul-Lehrman Connection Meaningless, Says Daily Bell (Corrections Added)

Update: Subsequent to my posting this, the Agora disinfo agent/troll/paid basher Ryals reposts Amberger’s comments to him (rather than Amberger’s blog posts about Agora), simultaneously discrediting and neutralizing Amberger by an unsubstantiated smear (Nazi Stasi), just as he posts any substantial criticism of Agora, ALWAYS with slurs about the critics and always with OLD NEWS about Agora, usually attributing criminal behavior to the critics, for which he gives not a shred of proof.

His response fails to mention the people who really are responsible for Agora’s marketing and selling today – Myles Norin (CEO), Matthew Turner (counsel), Addison Wiggin (chief of Agora Financial, its flagship subsidiary, and also heavily involved in Oxford Group, Michael Masterson (Mark Ford), Byron King, Alexander Greene, Mike Ward, Julia Guth, and many others, whose border-line promotions were all deconstructed by Christoph Amberger. Instead, Ryals tries to discredit Amberger’s whistle-blowing. No question Ryals has some kind of tie to Agora.

To make things clearer, Agora is not solely Bonner’s company but owned by several people, some of whom no doubt have axes to grind with others. Bonner himself might have enemies within the company, for partisan, financial or personal reasons.

Notice how Ryals only focuses on the Republicans in the group, like Bonner, presumably Casey, and Robert Bauman, who specializes in the admirable field of asset protection. Now, unlike the state-worshipping fraud Ryals,  I would love to believe Bob Bauman is a really good asset protector (aka money-launderer), but, alas, if he is not what he seems (and I haven’t seen anything concrete to suggest that), he is much more likely to be an IRS/DOJ honey-pot, if I know how these things work.

That’s what I believe large parts of the  asset-protection racket really is about, when it’s not about espionage and government-related money-laundering.

That might include the over-hyped Simon Black, who also seems to be a part of the LRC-Agora crew and constantly tells people that Singapore is a great place for financial security, when anyone who even researches the matter in a skimpy way will figure out that Singapore is crawling with Mossad and CIA.

NWO resistance indeed.

Anyone boosting simplistic asset protection, or simplistic encryption like Tor (heavens!) is simply pushing people into US govt supervised encryption. But, then, maybe that’s the idea.

ORIGINAL POST

The Daily Bell argues that the Ron Paul-Lewis Lehrman connection is meaningless (links to follow):

“Worse, in our humble opinion, whenever such issues arise these days, the dissemblers come out in force to attack the world’s only apparently honest politician, US Congressman Ron Paul, for working with Lewis Lehrman.

It is true that when Ron Paul and Lewis Lehrman served (with many others) on a US Gold Commission during the Reagan years they wrote a minority report recommending a return to some sort of gold standard.

But Ron Paul certainly didn’t seek Lehrman out to write the report. He wrote it with Lehrman because Lehrman was on the committee. Ron Paul, of course, went on to call for a regime of competing currencies, which is something we’re partial to.”

Comment:

This would be a whole lot more credible if  The Daily Bell itself didn’t call out people on just as tenuous evidence, in much more black and white terms than I have ever done.

It also doesn’t help that the Bell dismisses critics of Paul as dissemblers.

Why?

What’s wrong with criticizing a politician who’s set up as the sole spokesman for libertarian issues?

Why would anti-state capitalists focus on a politician as their spokesman, in the first place?

What sense does that make?

Especially, when just a few days ago, the Bell raised no objection at all, when, in an interview on their site, Gerald Celente claimed Paul was “not a fighter” and had failed because he was not a fighter.

If that is the opinion of Paul’s friends, isn’t it natural that people on the paper-money team or outside the binary altogether (like me) would reach even more devastating conclusions?

I don’t believe most Paul critics are dissembling. I think they are genuinely disappointed and suspicious. I am too.

Three. The Bell loses credibility when it claims Paul is the “only honest politician in the world.”

That’s pure hyperbole.

I’m sure the Daily Bell doesn’t know “all the politicians in the world.” And Paul isn’t perfectly clean. There was rampant nepotism during his campaign. There was the alleged double-billing. There were other mis-steps.

They might all be minor. And the Lehrman connection might be innocuous too, but it’s not the only troubling thing that comes to mind.

Which brings me to my fourth point.

Paul has a long-standing relationship via Murray Rothbard with Agora Inc. and its founder, James Dale Davidson, about which I blogged in July (the first person to pull that little nugget up, I do believe….although, as soon as I say that, I’m sure a dozen quicky sites will pop up with the same information on them).

This is a very troubling connection, in my opinion.

The Agora Inc. network has  ties to Rockefeller-related groups, like the Peterson Institute. I blogged about that in 2009, January.

Now, I myself have once cited research produced by the Peterson.

[It’s in my piece on Krugman, at LRC, and the researcher was Anders Aslund, who was one of the advocates of privatization in the Soviet Union. Aslund was wrong about that,  although not the only one wrong, and certainly not the main one.]

But I post research from all over the place, and that is not an endorsement of the authors’ other works or of the websites carrying the research.

Agora’s ties to the Peterson Institute, however, are a bit more relevant and important than my posting or quoting someone once, casually.

The I.O.U.S.A film (a spin-off from Agora’ “Empire of Debt,” Wiley, 2005) was promoted nationally by the Peterson Institute. Some of the positions Agora supports are consonant with Pete Peterson’s interests, although I do believe most people at Agora are anti-state libertarians, whereas Peterson is no more than a  crony capitalist.

This is what I wrote in my 2009 blog post  about the Peterson connection:

“Assembling this bipartisan group of prominent enablers/theorists of empire over the last twenty years lets IOUSA claim it goes beyond partisanship. In reality it does no such thing. Omitting a context for its arguments, the film actually lends itself to being interpreted in ways quite contradictory to the tenor of the original work. At times it even subverts the book thoroughly.

IOUSA lends itself to a very anti-libertarian, statist moralizing of the debt issue: thus, spendthrift population needs to be forced to save by government. Now that really alarms me. Watch out – forced savings accounts ahead!”

Agora also promotes things like “peak oil,” which I don’t find persuasive, being a long-time believer in the abiotic origin of oil.

These positions are  accompanied by promotions throughout its marketing network from which it stands to gain financially, either directly or indirectly.

That surely calls into question the credibility of the positions of anyone deeply connected to them.

Is Paul connected to them in a serious way?

{Added, August 25: Obviously, Agora has also supported anti-war positions that have not won it popularity, so I should give them credit for that and I do.

But I also recognize that the “anti-war” position has a place in the permissible range of public opinion, as long as on crucial issues and events  antiwar advocates develop laryngitis. This strategy, devised by the intelligence services, ensures that there is “cognitive diversity” among critics of war and the police state that gives the appearance of a “liberal” political culture, while actually permitting them little impact.  It siphons off the energy, time, money, and ambition of perhaps 95% of activists and effectively marginalizes the rest. Zahir Ebrahim has written extensively about this at his depressing but honest website, Project HumanBeingsFirst.]

Besides the tie-in to the establishment via Peterson/Rockefeller and besides the commercial imperative which undermines the sincerity of its positions, there are also Rothschild connections to Agora.

First, Rothschild interests are now directly connected to Rockefeller interests, by a recent merger (which I’ve blogged a couple of times).

Second, there are also direct connections between the Rothschilds and Agora.

I wasn’t sure about some of those, a couple of years ago.

In fact, I thought the allegation that Agora was a Rothschild front was only innuendo concocted at Executive Intelligence Review by ex-Larouchite, Bill Engdahl, who often doesn’t cite his sources and has once picked up leads from me without acknowledgement, likely because I come from the right

That’s why, even though I was disillusioned with Ron Paul by then, I didn’t place much stock in the Engdahl charge, especially when it was picked up on Jennifer Lake’s blog (see this blog post of March 10 2010) and then embellished with a lot of strange errors.  I felt the whole thing had to be some kind of disinformation. I certainly didn’t make any connection to Paul.  I thought it was a ploy to muddy more concrete legal issues. One can’t be prosecuted for being a Rothschild front, after all, but one can discredit one’s detractors by posing as one, since the whole Rothschild conspiracy is beyond the pale for mainstream analysts and writers. In fact, Lake’s silly comments, which I was forced to address because they libeled me, actually damaged the very thing she –  with typical arrogance – thought she was assisting – the public interest. In short, she forced me to state things that tipped off the very people she claimed I was covering for.

That’s why I even thought Agora itself was encouraging the story, a view shared by at least one other credible journalist. For the same reason, I suspect that Tony Ryals, the cyberbully behind all the negative postings about me, isn’t half as insane as he pretends to be. In fact, I think he has indirect ties to Agora himself, since he never mentions the people there who have actual legal responsibility there, like CEO Myles Norin, or their attorney, Matt Turner, or Agora Financial chief, Addison Wiggin, or some of their star traders, like Alan Knuckman.

[Sept 6 – this morning, I checked to find that Ryals’ posts referencing these comments of mine and thus referencing these individuals had been deleted or “disappeared.” Of course, just to make me a liar,  they might pop back. But it’s interesting that it’s impossible to stop Ryals’s libels, when it’s someone like me (or others, who aren’t in charge at Agora or whose crimes, if they committed any, are beyond the statute of limitations, but it’s easy enough to get him to remove comments about the people still there.]

Funnier still, Ryals never mentions a former senior employee, Christoph Amberger, whose blog about the company’s shenanigans (cons would be a better word from what I read) was shut down in 2011. Reportedly, this was after he was paid to keep his silence, that is, hold to a non-disclosure agreement under threat of litigation. All traces of his blog about the company’s marketing deceptions (GreenLaserReviews) were wiped off the net in a matter of days.

Instead of mentioning all this, Ryals, who even corresponded with Amberger (who smacked him down for the troll he is) waffles on about Davidson, who is safely beyond reach of prosecution, and, in any case, seems to have more than paid for any sins by his investigations into the Clinton mafia and his insights into the manipulation of the stock markets; Bonner, who probably has no legal liability, as he’s not an officer of the company, and is too wealthy, too cautious, too smart, and too well-connected to get into trouble anyway; and Stansberry, who is already damaged goods and unlikely to get hurt any worse by innuendo.

But leaving aside intriguing theories about the cyber-underworld in which Ryals and his rants reside, I’m still not sure what the Rothschild connections to Agora really amount to.  The best I can say is I’m much more willing to believe some people there profit from them.

Why did it take me so long to get to that point?

Because it’s only recently (over the last year) that I’ve had the time to dig around and find any kind of credible accounting of how the Rothschild family might be the financial juggernaut they are said to be on conspiracy sites.

[I got there by adding material posted at Project Humanbeingsfirst  to my own research into BCCI (via Engdahl, Skolnik, DeepBlackLies, Yamaguchi.com, Forbes.com, LBMA website and other material.]

Now that I’ve come to think the whole “Rothschild” conspiracy  is something more than fiction, I’ve also begun to look at Ron Paul with a more critical eye.

So that’s where I come from on that.

Now, for my own credibility on the subject, given that I too have a connection to Agora.

This is what I have to say.

Except for the attacks following my pieces on Assange (by an attention-seeking Assange groupie, Tom Usher at RealLiberalChristian) and a legal threat at DailyBell by another fanboy and blatant troll, calling himself Al Kyder, and a couple of other things), one hundred percent of  the negative posts about me on the net stem from this one supposedly crazy person, who seems to have an indirect connection to Agora.

And all the rest of the monitoring/hacking I’ve experienced stem from my fall-out with Agora too.

What was the monitoring/hacking about? Simple.

In 2008, I gave whatever information I had  about certain sensitive issues to responsible journalists and investigators.

There you have it. That’s why their campaign against me didn’t end with the resolution of my IP issues with the company.  In fact,  it’s the reason why the IP issue keeps festering.

Who likes to be joined at the hip to someone who’s outed them? Who likes to know that someone knows what they are capable of?

That is why they are so bent on isolating me, stirring up third parties against me, and minimizing my influence in every way possible.

Since then, I’ve been warned by good people to “leave it alone” or possibly become even more of a target.  And that’s what I’ve tried to do, but it’s not because I’m interested in covering up anything for anyone.

It’s because I see no reason to second-guess the integrity, good faith, and sound judgment of what I’ve been told but take it as solid advice from people who know better than me. And  it’s because I believe more evil than good will come from ignoring that advice.

Especially as there’s another layer of complexity to this story.

Agora Inc. was also the last business association of former CIA director, William Colby, who  seemingly committed suicide some twenty years ago.

I say seemingly, because the suicide theory has been peddled only recently, and only by one of Colby’s sons. No one else believes it and there’s not much evidence for it.

Thus far, the official story has been  that it was an accident.

That sounds just as unlikely to me, as I blogged earlier.

Note: Ryals not only filched the Davidson-Chomsky-Rothbard connection from my blog (posted on July 20), as well as the information about Rees-Mogg’s and Colby’s Le Cercle and Pilgrim connections (which I got by discovering and researching the ISGP.EU site in detail),** he failed to link the post and then tried to pretend that I was covering up something about the Colby killing, when I’d  blogged about it as a murder, long ago, in 2010, and before that, in 2009. In fact, I’d been researching Mockingbird, MKUltra, mind-control, and sex-trauma as early as 2004, for my first book, where I have a couple of chapters on the material.

In 2005 I wrote a piece about former CIA director Stansfield Turner and Operation Gladio. It was around then that I also first heard about about Colby.

The fact that I ended up in the company where Colby once worked is one of those strange coincidences that “intention” pulls out of the universe.

And, far from covering up any of this, I’ve blogged repeatedly about it.

For instance, here’s my comment on an interview of Rees-Mogg there:

Sorry. Colby was Cercle and apparently also Opus Dei …

Posted by Lila Rajiva on 06/05/10 11:55 AM

Rees-Mogg is reportedly a member of Le Cercle and the Pilgrim’s Society, as well as the exclusive Roxburghe club – supposedly a very influential part of the Anglo-American establishment. He was backed by speculator and corporate raider, James Goldsmith, relative and close associate of the Rothschilds.

Allegations are made on the left that Rees-Mogg is closely associated with Richard Mellon Scaife. Rees-Mogg is also closely tied to James Davidson, Bill Bonner, and Agora, through the Strategic Investment newsletter and other publications.

Through SI, he’s also linked to William Colby, ex CIA chief, also a Pilgrim Society member, if I’m not mistaken.

By link, I just mean there exists a relationship. It’s by no means clear how that actually plays out, if at all.

Colby was murdered (?) early 1990s. My best guess is it was related to the opening of CIA files with the Church Committee (much earlier)….and inter departmental fighting that resulted; there’s also a connection to a White House- related paedophilia scandal in Nebraska that got hushed up in a hurry. Some have linked that scandal to CIA mind-control operations but I haven’t seen anything conclusive about it. “

It always seemed plausible to me that Colby’s death was a political assassination, given his involvement in Operation Phoenix and Project Mockingbird, his testimony at the Church Committee hearings, his interest in the Nebraska pedophile ring, and his work for the intelligence-affiliated Nugan Hand bank (which had ties to BCCI).

I learned about Le Cercle and the Pilgrim’s Circle from ISGP.eu, and passed that onto the Bell, as well.

I posted the link to ISGP.eu at the Bell below a July 8, 2010 article

Posted by Lila Rajiva on 07/09/10 12:28 PM

Sorry. Two careless mistakes.

@John Treichler (not Treicher, as posted before).

The site is the Institute for the Study of Globalization and Covert Politics (ISGP.eu not ISGPU, as I wrote in a hurry). Written from a very left-wing perspective. Meticulously compiled.

[Note: ISGP eu was up when I posted the link, but googling for it today, I find that the domain is for sale and I find a post at Cryptogon, dating back to January of the same year (2010), saying that the site had disappeared, but that the writer at Cryptogon had saved the information from the google cache in the form of a zip file. However the link he had posted didn’t open to the ISGP.eu file at all. He claimed he had given it to Wikileaks for safe-keeping. I later found it at wikispooks.]

So, that’s my explanation of why the Bell’s dismissal of the Lehrman link isn’t quite enough; why there are other reasons to worry about Paul, such as his connections to Agora; why I was slow to start looking at Paul critically; what Agora’s ties to the Rothschilds might be; and what my connection to the whole business amounts to.

There’s one other thing. The Bell is also a part of the same Agora network to which Paul seems to have ties.

You won’t hear that from them, though.  It’s one of those little omissions that are troubling,  like the repositioning and revisionism that goes on on the site, at times.

For instance, in the same piece on the Lehrman tie, Wile writes that he knew Assange was disinformation right away.

Not so. He got that from me (see these comments below a piece at Infowars.com

as well as these comments below another piece there.

I was perhaps the only rightist anti-neocon to criticize Assange.

Other debunkers were Wayne Madsen (the first on the case) and Bill Engdahl, both on the left.

Neither of those two, by the way, assembled nearly as comprehensive a critique of Wikileaks as I did.

And I know that research had an impact, because  the Guardian ran a piece derived from it shortly after (picking up on the John Shipton lead) and an Australian academic wrote a paper repositioning the cypherpunk association (deconstructed in my pieces) into a narrative more favorable to their man.

Wile relied on that research, as well as material on Gordon Duff’s site, in changing his opinion. Then he exaggerated and ended up with a kind of parody of my criticism of Assange.

This he tends to do, which allows an opening to people like Fed regulator, William Black, whom Wile once made the mistake of criticizing. Black reacted with a petty and surprisingly  personal attack, but, when you distort people’s positions, you have to expect vehement reactions.

Wile’s subtle perception management has even caught the attention of many contributors to the Bell, including pro-Paulian goldbugs like Bionic Mosquito and Leonardo Pisano, as well as paper-money anti-Paulians like FauxCapitalist and Memehunter.

Why does he do it? Most likely as a way for the site to stay viable on the net, while conspiracy mongering, or perhaps, as a way to manage the reactions of readers and associates. Nothing wrong with that, but, still, it’s unsettling and tends to make people suspicious.

It’s why I stopped posting on their forum, despite my gratitude to them. for providing a useful and unusual venue for discussions.

I also do respect Wile’s courage in tackling material people usually avoid for fear of losing their credibility.

So the Bell does get a lot of props from me for bravery and unique content, yes, but I also see them as compromised by their financial ties. The same goes for some other libertarian sites I still read.

Other pluses: Wile is almost always polite and he is not as Eurocentric in his thinking as some others.

I should add that I’m not one of those who think he’s running a limited hang-out himself.  Or, at least, he is doing it less than most.

Some final thoughts:

First, about Colby and Agora.

Colby had so many enemies that it would be hard to narrow down who murdered him, if he was murdered, without a lot more evidence being uncovered. But no one in officialdom or intelligence is likely to want to do that. And only a fool or a martyr would venture into that territory alone.

About the Agora connection (and, through them, to Paul):

Colby’s name appeared on Agora’s long-running Strategic Investments newsletter, with which the Rothschild-related Rees Mogg is/was affiliated, along with long-time anti-tax advocate, electronic counterfeiting (anti-Naked Short Selling) critic, and Forbes/Scaife protege, James Dale Davidson.

Davidson, Rothbard, and Chomsky all worked together in the 1970s, in antiwar activism, which by itself means little or nothing. Many ideological foes make common cause on single issues.

But, it was not “by itself,” as the evidence shows.

At least one of Paul’s writers (the guy who wrote the race realist pamphlets) is directly tied to Agora.

Paul himself has been incessantly promoted by Agora, until very recently, when affiliates and associates began promoting a few anti-Paul libertarians, like Wendy McElroy, N. Stephen Kinsella, and even Stephan Molyneux, who appeared briefly on the Doug Casey website, and then was pushed out.

It was also from Agora Inc. that I first heard of Ron Paul.

Casey, like Jeff Berwick and what looks like a majority of the hard-money community, is himself closely tied to the Agora network by business affiliation.

So also, as I said earlier,  the Daily Bell, with its multiple banking and gold community associations.

These ties may or may not mean anything nefarious, but they would certainly limit what the Bell, or any other libertarian writer in this circle, would be willing or able to say publicly.

Which means I really can’t trust someone in that circle to be too forthcoming about Paul, since they all share business networks.

That is simply common-sense.

Even I have had a hard time writing about Agora’s network, even though all I did was write and do some research there, and the only person I really worked with was Bill Bonner.

To put it as simply as possible for all the trolls who still can’t read my actual words, let alone between my words:

It is difficult to write critically about people with whom you have had personal and professional relationships; who have accessed your personal and business records (illegally).

It is even more difficult when their employees work and live close to where you work and live and they are native-born, while you are an immigrant.

It becomes impossible when the political and economic context is a multi-front global military and economic war, in which your motherland is also involved, and not always as an ally; when the legal and media environment of your adopted country is totalitarian; when your family lives abroad and you are self-employed and modestly well-off, while they have tens of millions of dollars behind them, are connected to intelligence and financial elites, have thousands, if not millions, of subscribers and friends to whom they can outsource their efforts, and when they are marketing, financial, and political players on a global scale.

If that is true of me, how much more is it true of the hard-money community, which is completely encompassed by the Agora network?

I don’t expect any of them to pipe up with anything but support for Ron Paul. They will alienate their business associates, otherwise.

I hope that explains why I don’t think the Bell’s dismissal of the Lehrman tie is sufficient by itself.

I say this as someone who took a long time to open their eyes about Paul.

Which person likes to think they’ve been had? Or, that establishment critics mightn’t be entirely off-base in their criticism of Paul?

As far back as 2008, I heard some mutterings from loyal fans of Paul but said nothing, hoping it was all minor or a mistake.

I even took the part of the LRC crowd against the WSJ in a lengthy blog post.

[As far as that WSJ incident goes, I still stand by the piece ]

In 2010 I spoke up about my dissatisfaction with Paul’s positions at the Daily Bell forum.

I didn’t want to, because I knew Paul supporters would get annoyed by it, but credibility is very important to anyone writing about politics. It should be more important than pleasing the team.

Then, a few people who’ve wanted to discredit me for supporting libertarian positions(albeit nuanced and rather more conservative ones than that of the anarcho-caps), or for criticizing Assange (albeit in a most circumspect and balanced way than his other detractors), or for deconstructing Ron Paul and his libertarian promoters (albeit factually and with respect), have tried to claim that I’m covering up for this or that person.

The truth is exactly the opposite. I’ve been libeled, monitored, and undermined covertly, almost continuously since 2007.  I’ve also been plagiarized repeatedly and marginalized.

I don’t really believe the government was behind any of that, except maybe at a very low level, in so far as some petty operatives might have been employed by my enemies to do the dirty work.

So, there is no cover up on my part. Or paranoia.  What I say is not a lie. It’s not propaganda. It’s not a smear or anything but the most truth it is possible, helpful, and advisable for anyone in my position to speak.

For the umpteenth time, I’m not RAW, nor CIA, nor Jihadi, nor Hindu fascist. I’m just a writer, with a lot of interests, an eclectic background, and too much curiosity and impetuosity for her own good.

It was a meaningful synchronicity that I got involved in the whole business. I don’t say that to promote myself,  create a mystery, or confuse the situation. I say it because that is really how it happened.

There are mysteries of “intention,” “attraction,” and the cycles of time.  And they have nothing to do with “dissembling”, “disinformation,” or “RAW”.

The innuendos by Jennifer Lake, Tony Ryals, and Tom Usher are simply smears, even if they are understandable smears.

There really are more things in earth and heaven, Horatio…

Gore Vidal Dead: Clever Satirist, Deluded Moralist

Gore Vidal died.

He said some accurate things about American foreign policy [which I admired], wrote some famous books I’ve never read [well, actually I did read “Myra Breckinridge” and disliked it] and was a clever fellow altogether, at least, all the clever people say so. 

But, hmm…I don’t really have anything to say except, let’s see…

I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young

hooker decrepit old pansy man dies?  feels as though she’s been taken advantage of ?

[That was Gore Vidal defending his good friend Roman Polansky, guilty of forced sodomizing and rape of a 13 year-old girl, after feeding her drugs.]

[Further note. The derogatory term (pansy) is intended to be satirical.  I have no animus against gays or gay rights, in fact, I fully support them.]

But, since the entire blogosphere is singing Vidal’s praises, without any reference whatsoever to his many negative traits, including venomous attacks on people ranging from Truman Capote to Charlton Heston,  I decided to break my usual rule of not saying anything negative on someone’s death and point out how mean a man he was in some ways, personally.

There was, for instance, his trick of embarrassing heterosexual males by implying homosexuality, the most famous instance of which was his encounter with Charlton Heston, who was not amused.]

And more here about the venom behind the urbanity:

About Truman Capote:

“Vidal made no secret that he detested the author of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood, saying once: “Capote I truly loathed. The way you might loathe an animal. A filthy animal that has found its way into the house.”

When asked ‘What was Capote doing that you didn’t like?” Vidal shouted: “Lying! The one thing I hate most on this earth. Which is why I do not have a friendly time with journalists.” He called Capote’s death “a good career move” and added “Every generation gets the Tiny Tim it deserves.”

Stephen Moss in The Guardian has a good piece about a man who wrote brilliant essays and over-rated novels, and  carried his perceptive and prescient anti-imperial criticism into pointless America-bashing that finally undercut his own criticism.

Does age bring wisdom?” a questioner from the floor asked Gore Vidal? There was a short pause. “No, it brings senility.” Cue a wave of applause from the vast audience that had come to touch the hem of the man Adam Boulton, who had the tricky task of interviewing Vidal, called “the greatest essayist since Montaigne”.

That’s a big claim, but not necessarily wide of the mark: Vidal’s essays on politics and literature are magnificent and will live long after the weighty novels he is keener for us to read and remember are gathering dust.

The wind-lashed encounter with Boulton was a ramble – an old man (Vidal, not Boulton) peering into the nooks and crannies of a fascinating life – but, happily, it was punctuated by some memorable one-liners. Asked who his successor as the great contrarian would be, he said: “I’m not holding the door open.” Lifting his walking stick and brandishing it like a mitre, he intoned: “I’m still the bishop of Rome.”

His advice to young people – “Grow up.” Questioned about his famous line that “when a friend succeeds, a little part of me dies”, he insisted it had been a joke – the books of quotations may have to be rewritten. The Republicans he called “a mindset rather than a party – a group of like-minded people compelled by greed and with a capacity for character assassination.” Asked by Boulton if Bobby Kennedy (who Vidal heartily disliked) would have made a better president than George W Bush, he replied: “You would make a better president than Bush!” Could an intellectual ever be elected president? “Well,” said Vidal, “accidents happen.”

[LR: Being anti-Bush or anti-Republican, is, after all very popular in intellectual circles, so it is hardly evidence of great courage to attack either of them from the safety of Europe.]

The one-liners, if you could catch them above the howling wind, kept coming: Vidal’s mind, which has a deeply ironic and subversive bent, is sharp, even if at 82 the body is frail. But are one-liners enough? There is substance in Vidal’s worldview – the Jeffersonian belief in the autonomy of the states, the fear of centralised power, the opposition to US entanglements abroad (he even said US involvement in the second world war was undertaken for selfish reasons) – but these days it gets hopelessly lost. He has become a turn.

His ceaseless negativity is also wearing. Perhaps that is the prerogative of the old, but the attack on the US is so unremitting that he undermines his own assault. “America is a country where no one can be phoney enough” – it sounds good, but is it true? It seems phoney to me. This is the country, after all, he has chosen to return to after his long sojourn in Italy.

Vidal has things of value to tell us – that the US administration has used 9/11 to tear up supposedly inviolable personal freedoms, that America cannot be both republic and empire, that all US politics is based on money, property, business. It was a telling moment when Boulton mentioned the picture in Vanity Fair that linked Vidal, Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer, three octogenarians pitching against America’s misguided, self-interested interventions in the Middle East. That got a large and deserved burst of applause.

Where were the voices of the younger generation was the implication? Is the art of engagement dying? Ironically, Christopher Hitchens, seen by some as a possible heir to the waspish Vidal, has engaged – but on the side of so-called liberal interventionism. Hitchens was in the audience and asked a loaded question – was it true Vidal had said the Bush administration knew 9/11 was coming? Vidal shot back that he’d never said such a thing, and that in any case Bush – his questioner’s hero – was too incompetent to have carried out so strategically devastating an attack.

[LR: Notice that Hitchens and Vidal reinforce the propaganda frame-work, by denying any validity whatsoever to the view that the government itself might have been complicit. How is this different from the Michael Moore brand of Democrat anti-establishmentarian critique?]

Vidal avoided that trap, but the uncommitted observer was still left wanting a more coherent picture of what should replace Bush. Even old guys – and it is poignant that Vidal is now the last of that Vanity Fair trio alive – have to do more than mock the vanities of the world. And beyond welcoming an Obama presidency as a sign that the US might be growing up,

[LR: Again, how deep really is criticism of this kind? ]

Vidal has little positive to say. Bush is an idiot, McCain a dimwit – not even a war hero, because “all he ever did was crash his plane; he didn’t even try to escape”; even Roosevelt wanted only to become “emperor of the west”. Sorry, but I don’t buy that latter point: there is a point where glib contrarianism becomes hollow and self-defeating; the enemy of thought.

Did he have any words of wisdom to offer at the dusk of a long life, asked a youthful member of the audience? Vidal had none, which seemed rather sad. It doesn’t suggest senility – the mind is strong, the wit undiminished – but it does suggest that irony can only take you so far.”

Rand Paul: Welshing On No Aid To Israel?

If I were a young libertarian who’d emptied my wallet into Rand Paul’s campaign, I’d  be painting his face on the basement wall and throwing darts at it, especially after the recent revelation at Liberty Fight about Rand Paul’s apparent silence on the $9 billion dollars in aid guarantees to Israel.

That’s after Rand spent the whole of 2011 (just google) swearing he’d cut aid to Israel. It’s not 100 percent clear what happened with the vote, some are making excuses and giving plausible explanations,  but at this stage of the game,  it doesn’t look good.

Also, one thing that seems to have missed comment is that the Senate summary of the bill specifies support for Israel as a “Jewish state,” not just once, either. Delete Israel and substitute, say, “Malaysia as a Muslim state,” and then you’ll get how just preposterous business-as-usual in DC is.

Not only is this vast sum of tax-payer money going to a foreign government (that’s all aid is anyway), it’s going to a form of government that runs counter to something the Constitution stands for – the US is against a state establishment of religion.

Meanwhile, the same people who applaud “Israel as a Jewish state” every day of the week will foam at the mouth and bark like rabid dogs if someone suggests that the US is a Christian state or that India is a Hindu state.

The h*** with Rand.

A Tribute To Ayn Rand And The Spirit Of America

A Tribute to Ayn Rand

I posted this in 2008 and I’m reposting it from PopModal today because it seems to be corrupted on my blog and the youtube version has vanished

Projwal Shreshta  compiled the quotations from “Atlas Shrugged” and the music, which is Divano, by Era.

From “Atlas Shrugged”:

“I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.”

“What is morality, she asked.
Judgment to distinguish right and wrong, vision to see the truth, and courage to act upon it, dedication to that which is good, integrity to stand by the good at any price. ”

“The view that man was ever to be drawn by some vision of the unattainable shining ahead, doomed ever to aspire, but not to achieve, my life and my values could not bring me to that.”

“I never found beauty in longing for the impossible and never found the possible to be beyond my reach.”

“I take no pride in hopeless longing; I wouldn’t hold a stillborn aspiration. I’d want to have it, to make it, to live it.”

“I do not think that tragedy is our natural fate and I do not live in chronic dread of disaster. It is no happiness, but suffering that I consider unnatural. It is not success, but calamity that I regard as the abnormal exception in Human Life.”

“Every form of happiness is one, every desire is driven by the same motor.- by our love for a single value, for the highest potentiality of  our own existence — and every achievement is an expression of it.

“Every man builds his world in his own image; he has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice. If he abdicates his power, he abdicates the status of man, and the grinding chaos of the irrational is what he achieves as his sphere of existence—by his own choice.”

“Morality is judgment to distinguish right and wrong, vision to see the truth, courage to act upon it, dedication to that which is good, and integrity to stand by it at any price.”

“Joy is the goal of existence, and joy is not to be stumbled upon, but to be achieved, and the act of treason is to let its vision drown in the swamp of the moment’s torture.”

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.”

“I am. Therefore I’ll think.”

“The choice–the dedication to one’s highest potential–is made by accepting the fact that the noblest act you have ever performed is the act of your mind in the process of grasping that two and two make four.”

“There was no meaning in motors or factories; that their only meaning is in man’s enjoyment of his life, which they served – and that my swelling admiration at the sight of achievement was for the man from which it came.”

“For the power and the radiant vision within him which had seen the earth as a place of enjoyment and had known that the work of achieving one’s happiness was the purpose the sanction and the meaning of life.”
