The Evil Ones Will Fall

Hello Dear Reader, after watching the unbelievable chaos at Calais recently I hope our Dear Leader Cameron is very proud of himself for ordering the obliteration of Libya in 2011. Gadaffi warned the West that it would be inundated with migrants and refugees if he was toppled from power and his country destroyed, he must be laughing in his grave. Within 8 months, 60, 000 sorties were dropped on Libya ! more than was used in the entire second world war. War is incredibly monstrous and barbaric, shouldn’t we have evolved beyond such evil practices ? Some pictures here are graphic but it’s so important to realise exactly the kind of horrific deaths inflicted on the innocent by the satanists in charge of planet earth.

And of course they won’t stop until the same vicious punishment has been meted out to Assad in Syria.

I’m actually dumbfounded at the depth of trance that most people seem to be under, they willingly comply to every one of their liberties being dismantled brick by brick, for f…’s sake wake up out there. On that note, love to you all, Janie, xxx

For a few months after Gaddafi’s demise, Mr Cameron basked in the warm afterglow of his first personal experience of military conflict, even making triumphant visits to Tripoli and Benghazi, where he was greeted by cheering crowds ****(I wouldn’t say cheering crowds but paid with over a thousand dinars crowd). Indeed, the belief among senior ministers that Libya constituted a great foreign policy success persisted long after the country had descended ****(they did not persisted they were protected by the European and American Secret AGENTS that is how they stayed into power) into chaos, with lawless bands of Islamist militias roaming the country, killing and kidnapping their opponents with impunity. In 2013, when I accompanied William Hague, the then Foreign Secretary, on a visit to Mali, where Libya-based Islamist groups were threatening to overrun the country, I was subjected to several lectures by his entourage on the merits of the Coalition’s Libyan adventure. ****( and this is what your coalition left behind)

And just what demonic concoction was used on these poor souls do you think ? Same as Sadam Hussein’s army back in Kuwait me thinks….just too painful to think about eh. How can we put up with this people ? How can Cameron et al continue to live their lives as normal whilst perpetuating this unimaginable terror ?

Glastonbury Symposium 2015 Rocks ! Mike Mitcham The ‘Smart’ Deception

Hello Dear Reader, back sooner than anticipated as traffic from Glastonbury to London is horrendous so left early.

As usual, the calibre of speakers was exceptional, the musicians simply brilliant and overall ambience perfect.
Thank you so much Di Brown, Sheila Martin, Andy Thomas & Jason Porthouse for all of your hard work in organising the 25th Glastonbury Symposium. People please go to www.glastonburysymposium.co.uk to find out about next years event, you’ll love it.

I wanted to share the work of Mike Mitcham with you today. His mission is to alert us all to the very real dangers of ‘Smart’ Meters.
This topic may, at first glance appear to be a tad trivial compared to the atrocities occuring in the world right now, but trust me this is extremely important information as it fits neatly into ‘their’ large armoury of resources being used against us day after day.
And this technology is a major cause for concern. It addles your brain and severly damages your DNA.

This talk was given at this year’s AV5 Conference which I wasn’t able to attend so I’m thrilled that I’ve found it here for you.
Please visit Mike’s website stopsmartmeteres.org.uk

You must watch it to the end to get the full picture, our “Dear Leaders” think they have it all sewn up ! they know full well that water is going to be at a premium in the very near future, especially after they have sucked 73 trillion gallons of it from the water table for the ‘fracking’ agenda, and once you’re hooked up to ‘their’ Smart Meter, game over, they can control access to your every drop of water and your energy usage….spy on you and so much more ! I hear that in Ireland the police are escorting the energy companies to homes to ensure ‘smart’ meters are installed ! Also, that the fresh water wells that local people there have used for centuries are cordoned off and are out of bounds ??? I’ll look into it further.

‘Our Dear Leader’ David Cameron

Hello Dear Reader, what a week eh, their cruelty to their fellow humans is unprecedented and unforgivable, at least in battles of old you came face to face with your enemy and knew what you were up against. But nowadays the proliferation of the use of drones takes warfare to another level. An extremely dangerous and cowardly level. I am white, English, 64 year old woman, I can only imagine what I would feel like as a young person witnessing the hideous annihilation of my family members by a foreign force by way of these obscene instruments of death.
Unthinkable, and the lunatics in charge of the asylum question why the retaliation ??? Talk about insanity. Who the hell do Western leaders think they are ? no debate, no discussion, just automatically reach for the bombs, splatter people to pieces, steal all their resources, reduce their once beautiful countries to rubble, as long as they can earn mega bucks from the immoral selling of armanents it’s all permissable…someone please explain why we are putting up with this shit ?

Here’s a couple of articles from stopthewarcoalition Also video of Richard D Hall, filmed a year ago but still of interest. Second video from RT today, very good.
I’m quite angry at the complacency of the British people it’s unfathomal to me as to why they can’t see through the oh so obvious lies of our ‘Dear leader’ David Cameron. I lexigrammed his name this morning, here’s some of the words I derived from it:

“Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. Albert Einstein

Revelations that British fighter pilots have been secretly attacking Syria under US command reveal both the government’s contempt for democracy and its subservience to Washington foreign policy.

The news makes a mockery of UK defence minister Michael Fallon’s promise of a full debate and vote in parliament on the issue.

Since the start of the “war on terror”, jihadi organisation has spread from small pockets of Central Asia across whole swathes of the globe. Western bombing in Syria will do nothing to halt Isis.

On the contrary it will add fuel to the flames of war engulfing the whole region, and it will lead to an increase in terrorist attacks.

Stop the War demands the government publicly commits to an immediate end to British bombing of Syria. More widely we call for an end to military and diplomatic support for Saudi Arabia in its war on Yemen and for a stop to the bombing campaign in Iraq.

British government makes mockery of parliament by secretly bombing Syria

Prime minister David Cameron accused of contempt for democracy after revelations that UK pilots took part in Syria bombing campaign.

The rubble of a home reportedly hit by a U.S.-led coalition airstrike in Kafar Daryan in Syria.

BRITISH military pilots carried out airstrikes in Syria while embedded with allied forces fighting the Islamic State group, the UK government has confirmed, despite parliamentary opposition to military involvement in the civil war-stricken country.

Responding to a freedom of information request, the Ministry of Defence said that Royal Air Force pilots embedded with US and Canadian forces “operating in Syrian airspace” had flown “strike missions” against IS targets.

British forces have been involved in the air campaign against IS in Iraq since last September but they have not formally participated in the wider coalition effort targeting territory held by the group and other Islamist factions in Syria.

The British parliament voted against military action in Syria in 2013, and Michael Fallon, the British defence secretary, had earlier indicated that any expansion of the UK’s air campaign to Syria would be put before parliament.

Critics on Friday accused David Cameron, the British prime minister, of displaying contempt for democracy and of keeping the public in the dark about the activities of the country’s armed forces.

“Parliament voted against bombing Syria two years ago. Now we find that the government ignored this and allowed British pilots to bomb under US command,” Lindsey German, one of the founders of the Stop the War Coalition, told MEE.

“This was a political and not a military decision and shows the contempt our prime minister has for democratic decisions. This should stop now and we should oppose all further attempts to bomb Syria.”

‘Open and honest debate’

The Ministry of Defence revealed details of British involvement in Syria in response to a freedom of information request submitted by Reprieve, a human rights organisation, which made the information public on Thursday.

“It is alarming that parliament and the public have been kept in the dark about this for so long,” said Jennifer Gibson, staff attorney at Reprieve.

“Yet more worrying is the fact that the UK seems to have turned over its personnel to the US wholesale, without the slightest idea as to what they are actually doing, and whether it is legal.

“We need an open and honest debate about UK involvement in Iraq and Syria. We can’t have that, though, until the UK comes clean about what actions its personnel are already undertaking.”

Responding to Reprieve, the Ministry of Defence said it did not have information on the specific number or location of airstrikes carried out by British pilots, and said that its personnel were subject to the chain of command of the forces with whom they were embedded.

“UK military personnel embedded with the USA, French and Canadian armed forces have been authorised to deploy with their units to participate in coalition operations against ISIL. UK embeds operate as if they were the host nation’s personnel, under that nation’s chain of command,” it said.

syria_refugees_460

“These personnel include pilots flying ISR [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance] and strike missions against ISIL targets using the equipment of those units. Of these three nations only the USA and Canada are operating in Syrian airspace.”

A Ministry of Defence spokesman told the UK’s Press Association news agency that there were currently no British pilots operating in Syria and said only “small numbers” had been involved in operations there as part of the embed programme.

Fallon has argued for an extension of British military involvement in the international campaign against IS and suggested it is an “illogicality” to target the group in Iraq but not in Syria. British armed forces have committed about 1,000 personnel to the coalition, with most of them involved in airstrikes in Iraq launched from bases in Cyprus and others deployed in training and advisory roles with Iraqi and Kurdish forces.

On Thursday Fallon announced plans to deploy a second RAF spy plane to the region later this year and said the UK was the only coalition member conducting “manned ISR” over Syria.

‘Lack of leadership’

Cameron has also suggested that the UK should consider joining the military effort in Syria after 30 British tourists died in an attack claimed by IS on a beach resort in Tunisia last month.

Earlier this week he invited several senior members of the opposition Labour Party to attend a meeting of the government’s national security council in an effort to win cross-party support for potential attacks on targets in Syria.

A spokesperson for Cameron said on Tuesday: “He has been clear he wants to approach this with consensus. He thinks it is important that people understand the nature of the threat.”

The Labour Party said it would call for the government to make a statement about the airstrikes in parliament on Monday. Jeremy Corbyn, one of four candidates currently running for the leadership of the party, said the government needed to be straight with the public and said there was no mandate for UK involvement in Syria.

“It absolutely has no authority for British forces to be involved in Syria. The excuse that these individual pilots are embedded with other airforces seems to me a very difficult and dodgy argument,” Corbyn told Sky News television.

Criticism of the role of British pilots in the skies over Syria also came on Friday from inside Cameron’s governing Conservative Party, with one parliamentarian suggesting the government had displayed “an insensitivity to parliament’s will”.

“I think this is a lack of, if anything, political leadership. We had a major vote. There should be sensitivity on this issue, and we should be very sensitive to the fact that we have military personnel participating, in effect, in military intervention,” John Baron, a Conservative MP, told BBC Radio’s Today Programme.

“Those individuals should be withdrawn from the embedded programme whilst this vote holds sway, while it still has authority, until we vote again. This is at the end of the day what parliamentary democracy is all about, regardless of the pros and cons of military intervention.”

Members of parliament rejected a government motion seeking support for British military backing for a proposed US-led campaign against Syrian government forces in 2013 following a deadly chemical weapons attack on the outskirts of Damascus. The US subsequently ruled out taking unilateral military action against Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The US-led coalition against IS has conducted thousands of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since launching Operation Inherent Resolve last year. Coalition forces on Wednesday bombed 15 targets in Syria and 16 targets in Iraq, US Central Command said in its latest operational update.

How the US and its allies ‘sent hell’ to Syria by putting ISIS in its midst

Charles Glass 15 July 2015. Posted in News
While millions of Syrians are fleeing, tens of thousands of jihadi volunteers are coming in as shock troops of self-styled Islamic State.

BY THE time the Arab-Israeli War of 1948 ended, Israeli forces had expelled about 700,000 Palestinian Arabs from their homes. Their plight led to the overthrow of Arab regimes as well as civil wars in Jordan in 1970 and in Lebanon from 1975 to 1990.

Israel bombed refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Gaza. Radicalized Palestinians staged hijackings, airport massacres and suicide bombings that captured headlines around the world and more than once led to dangerous American-Soviet confrontations.

The legacy of Syria’s refugee disaster awaits. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, António Gutteres, has just declared that 4 million Syrians are now refugees in neighboring countries.

That is almost six times greater than the number who fled Palestine. Another 7.6 million Syrians, he says, have also lost their homes but remain destitute within Syria. Gutteres said, “This is the biggest refugee population from a single conflict in a generation.”

The UN reports that Lebanon, a country of 4 million, has taken in 1.2 million Syrians. This figure is probably an underestimate, because not all refugees register with the UN. Almost all these Syrians, like the Palestinians before them, are Sunni Muslims whose mere presence upsets the delicate sectarian balance through which the Lebanese attempt to govern themselves.

Where the Palestinians caused fear among the Christians, the Syrian Sunnis pose a threat to the Shiite Muslim Hezbollah. Hezbollah depends on its Shiite plurality in Lebanon to hold power while it fights for the regime in Syria against Sunni Muslim jihadis.

In Lebanon, displaced Syrians live where they can. Some dwell in unfinished buildings, others in schools or farms. Lebanon does not wish to establish camps for them as it did for the Palestinians after 1948.

Jordan has taken 630,000, many of whom languish in desert camps along the border with Syria. Another 1.8 million Syrians have settled in Turkey, which has no intention of providing permanent homes for either Kurds or Arabs from Syria. Astoundingly, 250,000 Syrians have fled to Iraq despite the war there.

Before the war began in 2011, Syria fed itself and provided almost all of its medicines from flourishing pharmaceutical industries. Now it is dependent on foreign charity that is anything but adequate. The UN says that of the $4.53 billion needed for displaced Syrians to survive, it has received only $1.06 billion in the first half of this year. Gutteres lamented that aid falls far short of “the most basic survival needs of millions of people over the coming six months.”

The UN has had to cut food supplies to 1.6 million refugees. John Owen reported on Voice of America that the monthly food allowance for refugees in Lebanon has been reduced from $27 last January to $13.50.

Try feeding yourself on $13.50 a month to understand the reasons behind the desire of some Syrians to escape the region to feed their children. One 22-year-old Syrian, Osama al-Raqa, who lost his chance to go to university because of the war, told Agence France-Presse, “I dream of leaving to Europe. Europeans eat and live in houses. We, on the other hand, are homeless and the whole world treats us like a burden.”

Syrians who can flee the poverty of refugee camps and shantytowns in the Middle East are paying smugglers to take them by land and sea to Europe. Of the 137,000 people who attempted the perilous voyage across the Mediterranean to Western Europe in the first six months of this year, the UN says that one third were Syrians. The fact that many of them drowned has not deterred the others, who face living death without proper sustenance in the Middle East.

To imagine that the long-term plight of millions of Syrian refugees in the Middle East and Europe will have no consequences is folly on a greater scale than predicting the Palestinian refugee problem would disappear after 1948. This is a political more than a humanitarian issue. For the refugee exodus to stop, the war must end.

While millions of Syrians are fleeing, tens of thousands of jihadi volunteers are coming in. They are the shock troops of the self-styled Islamic State, which with Saudi and Turkish backing has taken control of large swathes of Syria and Iraq that it calls its caliphate. Its oppressive rule is reminiscent, albeit in religious garb, of the brutality of the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq. Indeed, Ahmed S. Hashim wrote in Middle East Policy that Saddam’s former intelligence operatives were “maintaining special detachments for conducting assassinations, kidnappings and the collection of funds” for ISIS.

In addition, the Islamic State is gaining support among jihadis worldwide. One private intelligence assessment, by IntelCenter, estimates that ISIS has attracted 35 affiliates and loyalist groups in Afghanistan, the Philippines, Mali, Lebanon, Egypt, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia.

One of them murdered 38 tourists, 30 of them British, in Tunisia on June 26. The shooter trained in Libya, where Western air power delivered the country over to a motley collection of jihadis who have unfurled the ISIS banner as their own. Britain is advising its citizens to avoid Tunisia, but Tunisia is unlikely to be the last place where jihadis will strike.

A friend of mine in Aleppo, who refuses to leave despite the battles in his once beautiful city, told me over the telephone, “You have sent hell to us.” That is, he blames me as a Westerner for putting the jihadis in his midst. The day cannot be far off when the jihadi militants, like the poor refugees whom they and the regime have displaced, will bring that hell back to us.

Technocracy Rising/ Trilateral Commision Patrick Wood

Hello Dear Reader, ‘got a great video here, ‘had it a couple of days but it’s prefaced with a warning not to copy ??? But I seriously don’t think anyone would want to deliberately prevent this from reaching as many truth seekers as possible, so here it is, brilliant.

Hadn’t heard of Patrick Wood before ! I know..I know, shame on me but ‘will definitely take a look at his books now.
I got it from Philosophers Stone Views From The Boat website. He’s a guest on ‘Caravan To Midnight’ radio so if you’re able to help these guys please do. We really do need to support one another in this gigantic battle for our minds and souls and it’s only because of the wonderful material gleaned from such radio shows and websites that we are able to be prepared and stay one step ahead of the lethal entities ruling our planet.

It’s long but well worth the listen, astounding information, he covers agenda 21 and it’s connection to a long term plan of ‘Technocracy’ the scrutiny and observation of every person on the planet.

It was first bandied about in the 1930’s and Zbigniew Brzezinski, a founder of the Trilateral Commision, played a large role in furthering these plans, surprise, suprise.

A question: How many clones must there be in circulation of this man for him to attend every secretive meeting held across the globe ?

After listening to almost all of it (just about to hear the remainder) I remembered that the great late William Cooper spoke of the Trilateral Commision and tells us in the youtube below that the name of this secretive group was taken from an extra terrestial source!
Well we know that just about anything’s possible in this ‘Orwellian’ world of ours and as ‘they’ were so intent on murdering poor ol’ William Cooper, it makes his words ever more powerful.
And let’s never forget the momentous work of David Icke who wrote about the Trilateral Commision a number of years ago too.

Smoke and Mirrors – The Greek Tragedy Worsens

Hello Dear Reader, forgive my delay in getting this posted. I saw it on David Icke’s site, written by my favourite journalist, John Pilger. He hones in on details that most people miss, you’ve got to love him.
I know we’ve been informed many times in the past that the EU experiment would never be allowed to fail, so I’m not surprised that this Greek fiasco has gone belly up. I just feel for the everyday man & woman of Greece that actually thought they had a hope in hell of being released from the EU’s satanic clutches.
There’s way too much money and power at stake here, why would they ever concede defeat and lose their big, fat, obscene salaries and perks. Wolfgang Schauble is a shining example of the blatant thuggery in use here.

But, personally, I believe that a lot more people have become aware of their nefarious antics and are not going to be so easily swayed, the perpetrators of this ugly mess have a few nasty surprises coming their way, enough is enough.

Our Dear leader Cameron is in the midst of rattifying a raft of new laws to quell any ideas about striking by his hard working, tax paying, law- abiding workers. But the propoganda unleashed on the masses over recent years has done a brilliant job of turning the private sector against the public sector and has them clamouring for these laws to be passed ASAP.
Instead of thinking ” there but for the grace of God go I”……they rage at the audacity of other’s having the nerve to strike and stand up to their slave masters. Makes you wonder eh ?

Greek Crisis is Not Only a Tragedy: It is a Lie
BY JOHN PILGER • JULY 13, 2015

WE BRING YOU PERSPECTIVES FROM AROUND THE WORLD. HELP US TO INFORM AND EDUCATE. YOUR DONATION IS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

The leaders of Syriza are revolutionaries, but their revolution is the perverse kind, says John Pilger.

An historic betrayal has consumed Greece. Having set aside the mandate of the Greek electorate, the Syriza government has willfully ignored the country’s landslide “no” vote and secretly agreed a raft of repressive, impoverishing measures in return for a “bailout” that means sinister foreign control and a warning to the world.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has pushed through parliament a proposal to cut at least €13 billion from the public purse—€4 billion more than the “austerity” figure rejected overwhelmingly by the majority of the Greek population in a referendum on July 5.

These reportedly include a 50% increase in the cost of health care for pensioners, almost 40% of whom live in poverty; deep cuts in public sector wages; the complete privatization of public facilities such as airports and ports; and a rise in value added tax to 23%, now applied to the Greek islands where people struggle to eke out a living. There is more to come.

“Anti-austerity party sweeps to stunning victory,” declared a Guardian headline on January 25. “Radical leftists,” the paper called Tsipras and his impressively-educated comrades. They wore open neck shirts, and the finance minister rode a motorbike and was described as a “rock star of economics.” It was a façade. They were not radical in any sense of that clichéd label, neither were they “anti austerity.”

For six months, Tsipras and the recently discarded finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, shuttled between Athens and Brussels, Berlin and the other centers of European money power. Instead of social justice for Greece, they achieved a new indebtedness, a deeper impoverishment that would merely replace a systemic rottenness based on the theft of tax revenue by the Greek super-wealthy—in accordance with European “neo-liberal” values—and cheap, highly profitable loans from those now seeking Greece’s scalp.

Greece’s debt, reports an audit by the Greek parliament, “is illegal, illegitimate and odious.” Proportionally, it is less than 30% that of the debit of Germany, its major creditor. It is less than the debt of European banks, whose “bailout” in 2007-08 was barely controversial and unpunished.

For a small country such as Greece, the euro is a colonial currency: A tether to a capitalist ideology so extreme that even Pope Francis pronounces it “intolerable” and “the dung of the devil.” The euro is to Greece what the US dollar is to remote territories in the Pacific, whose poverty and servility is guaranteed by their dependency.

In their travels to the court of the mighty in Brussels and Berlin, Tsipras and Varoufakis presented themselves neither as radicals, nor “leftists,” nor even honest social democrats, but as two slightly upstart supplicants in their pleas and demands. Without underestimating the hostility they faced, it is fair to say they displayed no political courage. More than once, the Greek people found out about their “secret austerity plans” in leaks to the media—such as a June 30 letter published in the Financial Times, in which Tsipras promised the heads of the European Union (EU), the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund to accept their basic, most vicious demands—which he has now accepted.

When the Greek electorate voted “no” on July 5 to this very kind of rotten deal, Tsipras said, “Come Monday and the Greek government will be at the negotiating table after the referendum with better terms for the Greek people.” Greeks had not voted for “better terms.” They had voted for justice and for sovereignty, as they had done on January 25.

The day after the January election, a truly democratic and, yes, radical government would have stopped every euro leaving the country, repudiated the “illegal and odious” debt—as Argentina did successfully—and expedited a plan to leave the crippling eurozone. But there was no plan. There was only a willingness to be “at the table” seeking “better terms.”

The true nature of Syriza has been seldom examined and explained. To the foreign media, it is no more than “leftist” or “far-left” or “hard-line”—the usual misleading spray. Some of Syriza’s international supporters have reached, at times, levels of cheerleading reminiscent of the rise of Barack Obama. Few have asked: Who are these “radicals”? What do they believe in?

Alex Jones

In 2013, Varoufakis wrote:

“Should we welcome this crisis of European capitalism as an opportunity to replace it with a better system? Or should we be so worried about it as to embark upon a campaign for stabilising capitalism? To me, the answer is clear. Europe’s crisis is far less likely to give birth to a better alternative to capitalism.

“…I bow to the criticism that I have campaigned on an agenda founded on the assumption that the left was, and remains, squarely defeated … Yes, I would love to put forward [a] radical agenda. But, no, I am not prepared to commit the [error of the British Labour Party following Margaret Thatcher’s victory].

“What good did we achieve in Britain in the early 1980s by promoting an agenda of socialist change that British society scorned while falling headlong into Thatcher’s neoliberal trip? Precisely none. What good will it do today to call for a dismantling of the Eurozone, of the European Union itself ?”

Varoufakis omits all mention of the Social Democratic Party that split the Labour vote and led to Blairism. In suggesting people in Britain “scorned socialist change”—when they were given no real opportunity to bring about that change—he echoes Tony Blair.

NOT A DONE DEAL

The leaders of Syriza are revolutionaries of a kind, but their revolution is the perverse, familiar appropriation of social democratic and parliamentary movements by liberals groomed to comply with neoliberal drivel and a social engineering whose authentic face is that of Wolfgang Schauble, Germany’s finance minister, an imperial thug. Like the Labour Party in Britain and its equivalents among former social democratic parties such as the Labor Party in Australia, still describing themselves as “liberal” or even “left,” Syriza is the product of an affluent, highly privileged, educated middle-class, “schooled in postmodernism,” as Alex Lantier wrote.

For them, class is the unmentionable, let alone an enduring struggle, regardless of the reality of the lives of most human beings. Syriza’s luminaries are well-groomed; they lead not the resistance that ordinary people crave, as the Greek electorate has so bravely demonstrated, but “better terms” of a venal status quo that corrals and punishes the poor. When merged with “identity politics” and its insidious distractions, the consequence is not resistance, but subservience. “Mainstream” political life in Britain exemplifies this.

This is not inevitable, a done deal, if we wake up from the long, postmodern coma and reject the myths and deceptions of those who claim to represent us, and fight.

War Crippling Countries Not Welfare / Fly On The Wall at Bilderberg 2015

Hello Dear Reader, taking the opportunity to post this straight away, just received it from a friend, brilliant.
Quite funny how I used that same term a few days ago about wishing to be a fly on the wall at the last Bilderberg meeting. Well the great thinker, Foster Gamble has let his imagination go there, great stuff.

Can you really believe the level of madness that seems to prevail on earth ? I mean, seriously, the slaughtering of one another is just not the way forward people, the only outcome from murdering your neighbour can be more tyranny and suppression for all of us, please wisen up and look to your hearts, there is no way you can possibly know the feelings of happiness and contentment by carrying out such abhorrent acts, life is meant to bring laughter and joy, do you see any evidence of that in your life ? Of course not, harming others is the greatest crime one can commit, you’ll never have peace of mind by “following orders” from the psychopaths in charge.

After Foster’s piece there’s an article from Stop The War Coalition, stating the obvious but none the less very good “It’s War that creates povery and hardships, not welfare and public services stupid !
Love to you all, Janie, xxx

FLY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS — REVOLUTION AT THE BILDERBERG

A Fly on the Wall
Strangest dream! I dreamt I was a fly on the wall in the main auditorium hall of the annual Bilderberg meeting.

I heard someone yelling and turned to the stage where an ancient-looking, paunchy, white man with red-rimmed eyes and a snarl was scolding the participants.

“I don’t know how many times I have to repeat it. We can’t control this many people. We have to get rid of most of the useless eaters and it’s not happening fast enough. You each have power and responsibility in this, so what the hell have you been doing this last year?”

The Bilderberg Group
The Bilderberg Group is an annual private conference of about 120–150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media, established in 1954. Though its existence is now known, participants are sworn to secrecy about any of the proceedings and forbidden to even take notes. Here is a roster of attendees from this year’s event.
A CEO from a chemical company stood to defend himself, saying, “We control over 80% of what they eat already, and we have laced it with GMOs, hormones, aspartame, and pesticides. Our MSG combines elegantly with all the High Fructose Corn Syrup they consume to create cancers and heart disease and diabetes at an unprecedented rate.”

The President of a pharmaceutical conglomerate chimed in, “We’ve got over half of the adults in our country on at least one prescription drug and now we have almost as many of the kids as well. The anti-depressants are hooking them when they get convinced that strong feelings aren’t OK, and the pushers are selling pain killers and mood pills almost as fast as the pharmacies. When someone loses it entirely and goes on a killing rampage, that’s helping convince folks they should turn in their guns to the government. We’re succeeding in making vaccines mandatory, and are on the verge of being able to just inject everyone with the toxins and heavy metals that we have been dropping from the sky and infusing in their water — the ones that dumb them down, weaken their resistance and shorten their lives.”

A notorious minister of education rose to speak. “Now that state-sponsored education is mandatory, we are doing everything we can to teach the history we want them to believe. They memorize but don’t ask or challenge much. Their heroes are the military, political and banking elite. They believe in the goodness of the nation state as their rulers and even the students of journalism all want to go into PR. They mostly want to work for the multi-nationals because that’s where the money is and even the elite private school students want to go to Wall St. or head up a big corporation or foundation…, again because we’ve made sure that’s where the money is.”

A four star general snapped to attention and boomed, “Hey, we’re still knockin’ em off in the desert, over a million in Iraq alone and we’re back in there. Profits are still rising after we got Hamas and ISIS to follow in Al Qaeda’s boot steps. We’re doing everything we can to get into Iran and Syria, while convincing the world that China and Russia are the bad guys. We just need more money and it’ll all work out the way we planned.”

A prominent former Western head of state adjusted his tie and lapel pin to represent the politicians. “Hey, we got you the Patriot Act, the NDAA, the Military Commissions Act, and the Natural Resources Defense Act. That’s total power over every system, resource, citizen and enforcement agency. Now with fast-tracking passed by the Senate, we are ready to go with the TPP, TTIP and Agenda 21, we are handing almost complete global authority over to you bankers and CEOs. The BRICS alliance is a nuisance, but at least we are keeping most reports of them and their power out of the mainstream news.”

The original boss at the podium glared at them all. “OK, so you are telling me you’ve got the masses sick, poor, in debt, afraid, medicated and duped. How come we still can’t get rid of most of them and control the rest? For all your bragging, we seem to be losing. We’re getting exposed, even arrested and forbidden to travel in some cases. We are becoming the laughing stock with all our banks and governments hundreds of trillions in the red. Our gold has mostly disappeared and they aren’t buying the notion of just letting us print money any more. We’ve got to get rid of cash and commodity-backed transactions immediately! Our own soldiers are on the verge of revolt in unprecedented ways. They’re starting to think they’re the ‘White Hats’ and we’re some kind of delusional psychopaths! This is unacceptable!”

With this outburst, he slouched and started to cough and had to sit down. But then I saw that men and women all over the ballroom were swooning and reeling. The MC ended the program abruptly and people helped each other out of the room to return to their suites.

As a fly on the wall, all of this definitely had my attention, so I flew down and snacked on some leftovers at one of the tables and then camped out behind a light fixture for the night.

When the doors opened for the next day’s presentations over breakfast, I was stunned to see people dragging in looking tired, ill and disoriented. The first speaker, some Queen from Europe, could barely stand and her voice was weak. “Something is wrong, ladies and gentlemen. I don’t feel very well. And apparently many of you don’t as well.”

At that moment, one of the armed guards walked up onto the stage and bent the microphone toward himself. “Yes, indeed, people, there is something very wrong. And the problem is people who act like YOU.” A hush came over the auditorium and the Queen grabbed the mic, yelling, “Guards, get rid of this man.”

The guards around the room remained motionless. “Don’t bother, ma’am, they’re all with me. Everyone in uniform, in fact, is here to give you a message.” As the participants looked around the room, guards were standing in front of every exit. “We have heard you refer to the ‘X Factor’ — some mythical force you don’t seem to be able to defeat, no matter how much money, deception and force you throw at it. It’s actually not that esoteric. It’s the life force — which includes the truth, morality, empathy and love. It’s good people everywhere. You can think of us as emissaries of the X Team.”

One of the waitresses put down her tray and walked up the steps to the stage. She stepped to the mic and said, “On behalf of the kitchen and wait staff, I want to let you know that the food and beverages you consumed the last several days were all the trash that you have all been inflicting on innocent people worldwide. You were drinking fracking water, enhanced with coal slurry and fluoride accented with various of your unethically approved pharmaceuticals. We were generous with the aspartame, MSG, syrups and coloring we added to your anti-biotic, pesticide and hormone-infused main courses along with their sides of GMO starches. Is it any wonder you are feeling the effects? Your exposure has been minimal, relatively speaking, and you will be relieved to know that today you are being served the organic vegetables and fruits that will begin to restore your health.”

Limousine Driver

Two of the limo drivers in dark suits and caps approached the podium. One was setting up a laptop and projector. The curtains parted at the back of the stage and in a moment one of them had started a presentation. “While your oil, gas and coal companies are fouling our atmosphere and raining asthma on our kids, while you send our children to risk their lives as your soldiers to destroy other cultures and steal their resources — all under the guise of ‘National Security,’ here is what you keep secret from the people!” He proceeded to show footage from laboratories around the world pulling electricity from the air, generating it with magnets, boiling water almost instantaneously with copper coils in beautiful geometric configurations.

Energy Wholeness
Maid
A maid joined the crew at the mic, saying, “My husband, my daughter and many of my friends have died of cancer while you have bullied, threatened or killed many inventors who had developed real cures.” The screen showed numerous doctors and researchers with a flood of before and after X-rays showing the disappearance of various tumors and diseased cells.

A waiter stepped to the front and looked over the participants. “Our children will go to the schools of their choice — or assemble their own education. They will not be squashed into your molds. They will be able to celebrate their curiosity, creativity and natural collaboration. They will learn real history, authentic science, useful skills and real philosophy rather than be propagandized into becoming mere robotic consumers or cogs in the banking-government-military-industrial corporatocracy. They will be nurtured in recognizing, honoring and restoring the wholeness of natural systems — from energy to agriculture, from media to economics and justice.”

One of the janitors from the hotel chimed in, “We have been instructed not to look you in the eyes — not to say or ask anything unless spoken to by you. Well, there’s not enough you could pay us or threaten us to keep us quiet any longer. While you were stealing our hard earned wages around the world through inflation, bailouts, fraud, fiat counterfeit, fake trade agreements, taxation, rigged markets and outright theft, we watched you building your walled cities, co-opting the military and intelligence agencies to protect you. We have had enough. See the sprinklers in the ceilings? Behind them are sophisticated spy cameras like the ones you use on everyone, but this time they have been aimed at you. We and our allies in other hotels have been patiently recording the proceedings of these meetings for years and the highlights are beginning to stream around the global Internet as I speak to you. The truth will always have its day…and today is that day. We do not come to hurt you, as you have done to so many. But justice calls for reconciliation and restitution.”

The concierge of the hotel was the last one to approach the podium. “We have many special guests here today. They have been watching this morning’s proceedings on monitors in the lobby. They were invited here as a surprise for your final day’s celebration and now they will join us.” The guards opened doors around the ballroom and people of all ages started flowing in. It became apparent that they were spouses, siblings, children and grandchildren of the members of the Bilderberg group.

“Today, finally, titles and money don’t matter. Starting now, the primary currency is changing from power, force and deception to trust, virtue and character. Your New World Order will not be the totalitarian pyramid of global coercion you have envisioned, but one based on merit and caring, on authenticity and freedom for every single being on the planet — as long as they do no harm. There are healthy solutions rising in every sector. The X Factor is everywhere. There is no leader. There is no regime or capital. Just the shared principles of integrity, non-aggression and self-ownership.

“Please gather your belongings and vacate the premises,” he continued. “This meeting is over, and a new way of life is beginning for humanity and this planet, our home. You will be regaining your strength over the next several weeks. Hopefully you will appreciate it, for you are going to need it to make amends with the rest of your life. ‘Bilderberg’ is supposed to mean ‘a community of builders.’ Let’s get started on that. You will be held personally accountable for what you have done and also for what you do from this day forward. Perhaps you can share with your children on your way home what you are going to be doing to set all of this right. We will be in touch. The whole world is watching.”

I could hardly believe what I had just witnessed. Oh, man, I’m thinking… did this all really happen? The details all seemed so real…

But hey, what do I know? I’m just a fly on the wall in some old guy’s dream.

War spending is what cripples countries, not welfare and public services

Giles Fraser 09 July 2015. Posted in News
Debt and war are constant partners: the global financial crisis was due, at least in part, to US intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq.

32
Greece war ships
Greek frigates and torpedo boats during a military exercise in 2005. ‘In the years following their EU entry, the Greeks were the world’s fourth-highest ­spenders on conventional weaponry.’
SOMEWHERE in a Greek jail, the former defence minister, Akis Tsochatzopoulos, watches the financial crisis unfold. I wonder how partly responsible he feels?

In 2013, Akis (as he is popularly known) went down for 20 years, finally succumbing to the waves of financial scandal to which his name had long been associated. For alongside the lavish spending, the houses and the dodgy tax returns, there was bribery, and it was the €8m appreciation he received from the German arms dealer, Ferrostaal, for the Greek government’s purchase of Type 214 submarines, that sent him to prison.

There is this idea that the Greeks got themselves into this current mess because they paid themselves too much for doing too little.

Well, maybe. But it’s not the complete picture. For the Greeks also got themselves into debt for the oldest reason in the book – one might even argue, for the very reason that public debt itself was first invented – to raise and support an army.

The state’s need for quick money to raise an army is how industrial-scale money lending comes into business (in the face of the church’s historic opposition to usury).

Indeed, in the west, one might even stretch to say that large-scale public debt began as a way to finance military intervention in the Middle East – ie the crusades. And just as rescuing Jerusalem from the Turks was the justification for massive military spending in the middle ages, so the fear of Turkey has been the reason given for recent Greek spending.

Along with German subs, the Greeks have bought French frigates, US F16s and German Leopard 2 tanks. In the 1980s, for example, the Greeks spent an average of 6.2% of their GDP on defence compared with a European average of 2.9%. In the years following their EU entry, the Greeks were the world’s fourth-highest spenders on conventional weaponry.

So, to recap: corrupt German companies bribed corrupt Greek politicians to buy German weapons. And then a German chancellor presses for austerity on the Greek people to pay back the loans they took out (with Germans banks) at massive interest, for the weapons they bought off them in the first place.

Is this an unfair characterisation? A bit. It wasn’t just Germany. And there were many other factors at play in the escalation of Greek debt. But the postwar difference between the Germans and the Greeks is not the tired stereotype that the former are hardworking and the latter are lazy, but rather that, among other things, the Germans have, for obvious reasons, been restricted in their military spending. And they have benefited massively from that.

Debt and war are constant partners. “The global financial crisis was due, at least in part, to the war,” wrote Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, calculating the cost of the US intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, pre-financial crash, to have been $3tn.

Indeed, it was only this year, back in March, that the UK taxpayer finally paid off the money we borrowed to fight the first world war. “This is a moment for Britain to be proud of,” said George Osborne, as he paid the final instalment of £1.9bn. Really?

The phrase “military-industrial complex” is one of those cliches of 70s leftwing radicalism, but it was Dwight D Eisenhower, a five-star general no less, who warned against its creeping power in his final speech as president.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government … we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.”
Ike was right.

This week, Church House, C of E HQ, hosted a conference sponsored by the arms dealers Lockheed Martin and MBDA Missile Systems. We preach about turning swords into ploughs yet help normalise an industry that turns them back again.

Varoufakis – A Trojan Horse ?

Hello Dear Reader, think I’ve jumped the gun a bit over this Greek fiasco and ex financier Yanis Varoufakis is definitely not what I first thought him to be. As this video so brilliantly explains, he is a Trojan Horse being used by the same old bunch of of occultist’s at the helm of this madness.

Ian R Crane, one of my favourite speakers, a dedicated and generous person who shares his profound insight with us all. Here he’s talking to William Engdal about the real reason behind the rapid departure of Varoufakis from his role as finance minister for the Greek government, simply fantastic research on both their parts, just had to post it for you.

It’s by way of ukcolumn.org do try and support these guys, I personally can’t thank them enough for the tremendous work that they do, if only videos such as these could be seen on prime time TV ! what a different world we would occupy eh.

Just heard the budget being announced by Gideon Osborne, yawn, yawn…..talk about parallel universe. I’ll address it more in detail soon, love to you all, Janie, xxx

EU Project for Enslavement Now Defunct ?

Hello Dear Reader, ‘been trying for ages to copy & paste today’s brilliant show on rt today, Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert’s views on the referendum that took place in Greece on Sunday with no luck, so please try to find it for yourself, so worth watching. His guest is Steve Keen from Kingston University (my home town) simply amazing stuff.

It never fails to amaze, the ridiculous adoration for the royal family here in the UK, astounding, when the entire world is falling apart,thousands of their serfs queque in all weathers to get a glimpse of them arriving for the divine christening of baby George !!!!
Forget about the most momentous decision of the brave Greek people to say a big fat NO to the bullying psychopaths of Brussels and the IMF, just stay focused on baby George ! But how exhilarating was that NO decision ! A huge breath of fresh air for anyone with an inkling of what’s really occuring here.

Alexis+Tsipras+zBseLNrUSHSm

Yes we know that the Greek people will be punished for their audacity to refuse to live life on their knees to their financial masters, it’s all so predictable as usual, but please stay strong, your country will go down in history as the epitomizing of the ‘David & Goliath’ legend. And what a smooth operator the finance minister Yanis varoufakis turned out to be ! I know not all is squeaky clean here but even so anyone that beats these ‘determined to enslave the human race nutter’s’ is a heroe in my book.

Greece+Facing+Uncertain+Future+After+Rejecting+aBLVbo0LEUFs

He and Alexis Tsipras have been labeled deranged marxist’s by the UK media, but they would say that wouldn’t they. Having said that, a very good point of view by journalist Peter Oborne in the Daily Mail ! today made complete sense, he writes…”terrible risks lie ahead, but he (Tsipras) has already achieved something extraordinary. The idea of democracy was invented in Greece 2,500 years ago. Thanks to him, democracy inside the eurozone, snuffed out by the single currency, was reborn in Greece on Sunday”, amen to that, let’s all book our next holiday there now !

Also in the UK we’ve had endless reports and reenactments of the so-called terrorist attacks on 7th July 2005 just to ensure you stay afraid, very afraid ! and do not believe any other version than what you’re told by your satanic rulers.
Check out older posts of that fateful day, I mention Peter Powell who just happened to be orchestrating an exercise involving the exact three underground stations that the bombs went off ! well what a coincidence ! the chances of that occuring in the real world is about one in 7 billion ! but they get away with their atrocious lies time and time again, their lives depend on it, they simply must keep everyone in fear of the next ‘terrorist’threat to enable them to have complete control over all we do and to earn them mega dollars in the process. The war on terrorism is nothing more than a very cruel hoax, I’ll write more on that soon, love to you all, Janie, xxx

The Sinister Side of Uber

Hello Dear Reader, continuing on from my post on ‘Uber’ it turns out our suspicions are completely justified. Natural News have compiled the following information about just how sinister this ‘overnight sensation’ really is and it’s not funny. Their app monitors your every move even when it’s not in use. It’s exactly what truth speakers have been warning everyone about for years, well it’s definitely here now.

As soon as you learn that incredibly rich bankers are sponsoring something you automatically know it’s beyond dodgy. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at this year’s bilderberg soiree in Austria, one of the chosen few to attend was Dame Anne Dowling
Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Cambridge.
Ann Dowling became the first female Professor in the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge in 1998. She is currently the Department’s Head and is an authority on aircraft noise. She has worked at Cambridge since 1977, but also held posts at the MIT (1999-2000) and Caltech (2001).
of Mechanical Engineering, University of Cambridge

p014n9pw
She is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2003. She holds an honorary ScD degree from Trinity College Dublin. She was appointed CBE in 2002 and a DBE for services to Science in 2007.

The reason why I think this is interesting is that she’s involved in advanced technology which is exactly what Uber is, I don’t know if there’s a direct connection to her work and Uber but time will tell eh.

In one of the newspapers today was a small mention of a fifteen year old boy who has chosen to inject himself with a microchip !!! What a brilliant job ‘they”ve done on the young eh, they cannot believe ‘thier’ luck, that in this day and age when most of us are informed about the dire consequences of becoming a microchipped population that there are youngster’s such as this (BryanWake) offering themselves as cyborgs !!!
There are quite a few willing recipients of this technology already, the mind boggles.

Here now is a snippet from someone discussing the latest Call of Duty Warfare video game, I didn’t copy the accompanying youtube, too boring, but he’s saying essentially, what I’ve posted about previously that super soldiers are definitely part of ‘their’ arsenal being used across the world.

“YouTube user TheLongSensation has posted a video that, according to his own sources and research, may well point towards some features of the game. If his information is to be believed, Black Ops 3 will feature a unit of soldiers from the EVO, Evolved Variable Operator, Program. A program that augments and replaces body parts with cybernetics to create superior soldiers.
Some of these augmentations are thought to allow dashing and sliding, think Vanquish, but they won’t allow for boost assisted jumping, see Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Other augmentations will allow the EVO soldier to take more damage and survive in dangerous environments, possibly even receive boosted strength. Plot supposition stretches into using the “How far are we willing to go” line as the central pillar for the game, presumably meaning how far does an EVO soldier go before they’re not human.”

Here’s a video further explaining the scientific basis of cybernetics, there are numerous videos out there but the radio hosts or talk show hosts have such huge ego’s that you have to endure their endless prattle and horrible tastes in music before they get to the nitty gritty ! drives me mad, all I want is to hear the subject matter, please take heed when recording you guys.

Love to you all, Janie, xxx

Uber is your Big Brother: It tracks you everywhere, even when you’re not using the Uber app

Untitled-1

(NaturalNews) Uber, the popular mobile ride-finding app, has been at the center of controversy since its launch in 2009. Much of the uproar has been due to the fact that its low-cost ride service poses a direct threat to the livelihood of cab drivers and other professional drivers who claim that the competition is unfair, unethical and downright illegal. In March 2015, Brussels cab drivers went on strike in protest of the Uber service, and since then, there has been increasing pressure on the company regarding its practices.

In June, the debate reached a fever pitch when taxi drivers in France staged anti-Uber demonstrations that turned violent, leading to a raid by police on the Uber headquarters in Paris and the detainment of two Uber executives for questioning.

However, there is another issue with the Uber smartphone app that has raised serious concerns among the public and various privacy groups: Uber tracks and records information regarding the location of passengers who use the service even when the app is not in use.

In the first years of its operations, Uber came under fire over charges that the company had “casually” used the information it gathered with its “God View” technology, which gives the company the capability of monitoring the location of all its drivers as well as users who have flagged its vehicles. The company even reportedly shared some of this data with third parties who did not work for Uber.

Recently, however, it has been revealed that Uber’s updated policy tracks passengers and allows access to their personal information.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington, D.C., has called for the Federal Trade Commission to conduct an investigation into the company’s invasive practices.

The complaint filed by the EPIC reads:

Uber will claim the right to collect personal information and detailed location data of American consumers, even when they are not using the service.

Technology-Eye-Spy-Data

Among the concerns raised by the EPIC complaint is the fact that Uber employees have admitted to tracking the geo-locations and other info regarding journalists who were questioning the company’s policies. The EPIC also points to the possible threat of hackers gaining access to users’ personal information.

In the EU, regulators have been scrutinizing the company’s privacy policies in an attempt to determine if Uber is in compliance with European privacy laws. Among the EU regulations are requirements that companies that use geo-location tracking must first obtain clear consent from the user.

EU guidelines also require the company to provide users with “comprehensive, easily accessible and understandable notice” regarding their data collection policies and to allow users access to their own collected data so that they can modify or delete particular details.

Finally, the regulations require that the data collected by companies such as Uber must be deleted as soon as the information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained.

It is unclear at this point whether Uber has revised its policies to reflect the EU regulations or similar privacy laws in the United States. The company has stated that it it amended its privacy policies to address the concerns raised by various legal entities and privacy groups.

Hudging from Uber’s past track record, there is plenty to remain concerned about. The company has showed a clear disregard for the privacy rights of its users, not to mention their continued undermining of the rights of cab drivers and other professionals throughout the world whose jobs have been threatened by Uber’s cheap, non-professional ride services.
