Obamanoids … For Real!

This doesn’t seem so farfetched after all. It surfaced during the presidential campaign. “An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches” purports to contain “over 60 pages of evidence and analysis proving Barack Obama’s use of a little-known and highly deceptive and manipulative form of ‘hack’ hypnosis on millions of unaware Americans, and reveals what only a few psychologists and hypnosis/NLP experts know.” It deserves a serious look in light of the following.

Liquidate the Banks; Fire the Executives


On Tuesday, a congressional panel headed by ex-Harvard law professor Elizabeth Warren released a report on Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's handling of the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP). Warren was appointed to lead the five-member Congressional Oversight Panel (COP) in November by Senate majority leader Harry Reid.
From the opening paragraph on, the Warren report makes clear that Congress is frustrated with Geithner's so-called "Financial Rescue Plan" and doesn't have the foggiest idea of what he is trying to do. Here are the first few lines of "Assessing Treasury's Strategy: Six Months of TARP":

"With this report, the Congressional Oversight Panel examines Treasury’s current strategy and evaluates the progress it has achieved thus far. This report returns the Panel’s inquiry to a central question raised in its first report: What is Treasury’s strategy?"

Six months and $1 trillion later, and Congress still cannot figure out what Geithner is up to. It's a wonder the Treasury Secretary hasn't been fired already.

Britain Stopped us From Vetting People, says Pakistan Envoy

Phil Woolas, the Immigration Minister, has rejected claims that Britain was failing to co-operate with Pakistani authorities on checking applicants for student visas in Britain.
He was reacting to an assertion by the Pakistani High Commissioner in London that the British authorities would not allow Pakistan to help to carry out background checks on applicants for student visas.

Metropolitan Police Chiefs Ordered to Justify Tactics at G20 Protests

The Metropolitan Police has been ordered to review the crowd-control tactic known as the “kettle”, which was used to pen in 5,000 people protesting over the G20 summit in London last week.
The Times has learnt that senior Scotland Yard officers who led Operation Glencoe, the plan to protect the summit and prevent disorder, have been summoned to explain their tactics to members of the force’s watchdog body.

Raids on 'Bomb Plotters' Finds Absolutely Nothing!

Raids to foil an alleged al-Qa'ida bomb plot, hurriedly brought forward after a blunder by a senior police officer, are yet to uncover any explosives or firearms, according to senior security sources. But further pressure was growing on the government last night after after it emerged that the suspects being questioned today may have exploited lax student visa regulations to enter the UK from Pakistan.

A Conservative Estimate of Total Direct U.S. Aid to Israel: Almost $114 Billion


This estimate of total U.S. direct aid to Israel updates the estimate given in the July 2006 issue of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. It is an estimate because arriving at an exact figure is not possible, since parts of U.S. aid to Israel are a) buried in the budgets of various U.S. agencies, mostly that of the Defense Department (DOD), or b) in a form not easily quantifiable, such as the early disbursement of aid, giving Israel a direct benefit in interest income and the U.S. Treasury a corresponding loss. Given these caveats, our current estimate of cumulative total direct aid to Israel is $113.8554 billion.

Panetta: CIA No Longer Using Secret Prisons (Yeah, Right!)

The CIA is “no longer” operating secret prisons used by the intelligence agency to interrogate terror suspects, and plans to shut all remaining “black sites,” the spy agency’s director said Thursday.
The statement by the Central Intelligence Agency chief confirmed the spy service was carrying out an order from President Barack Obama to shut down the secret prisons that have been condemned at home and abroad as a flagrant violation of human rights.

Openness of Family Courts is a 'Con Trick'

Jack Straw has been accused of a confidence trick over plans to open the family courts to the media.

John Hemming, a Liberal Democrat MP, has warned that although the Justice Secretary’s new rules will allow the media to attend family court proceedings for the first time, reports cannot be published without the judge’s permission.

The media, groups campaigning for justice for families and the English public had each been taken in, he said. “Whether it is by Jack Straw or by forces of reaction in the judiciary – we have all been hoodwinked.”

Obama's Obscene Remarks in Iraq

It is hard to know where to begin on Obama's remarks in Iraq yesterday during a visit described unnecessarily by our press as a "surprise" since that is the only sort of visit a US President can make to Iraq. What is more appalling? The casual obscenity of a US President calling upon a nation that the US has been beating, brutalizing, and raping (that is when not using like a pawn in geo political games) for decades to "take responsibility for itself" or the fact that he has absolutely no idea of how much like a criminal sociopath he sounds when making such remarks?

Serb Demonization a Propaganda Coup

The successful demonization of the Serbs, making them largely responsible for the Yugoslav wars, and as unique and genocidal killers, was one of the great propaganda triumphs of our era. It was done so quickly, with such uniformity and uncritical zeal in the mainstream Western media, that disinformation had (and still has, after almost two decades) a field day.

Sun Subliminals in 'The Secret' by Jim Porter

Yesterday I wrote about the The Secret, that self help book and DVD which has been very popular.

Watching through the DVD again last night, I found many interesting quotes relating to the Law of Attraction, the basis of the ’secret’ itself.

I also saw some interesting examples of subliminal programming, three which I would like to share with you. They are all related to the sun.

Terminator Planet: Launching the Drone Wars

by Tom Engelhardt


In 1984, Skynet, the supercomputer that rules a future Earth, sent a cyborg assassin, a "terminator," back to our time. His job was to liquidate the woman who would give birth to John Connor, the leader of the underground human resistance of Skynet's time. You with me so far? That, of course, was the plot of the first Terminator movie and for the multi-millions who saw it, the images of future machine war -- of hunter-killer drones flying above a wasted landscape -- are unforgettable.

Since then, as Hollywood's special effects took off, there were two sequels during which the original terminator somehow morphed into a friendlier figure on screen, and even more miraculously, off-screen, into the humanoid governor of California. Now, the fourth film in the series, Terminator Salvation, is about to descend on us. It will hit our multiplexes this May.

Oh, sorry, I don't mean hit hit. I mean, arrive in.

Meanwhile, hunter-killer drones haven't waited for Hollywood. As you sit in that movie theater in May, actual unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), pilotless surveillance and assassination drones armed with Hellfire missiles, will be patrolling our expanding global battlefields, hunting down human beings. And in the Pentagon and the labs of defense contractors, UAV supporters are already talking about and working on next-generation machines. Post-2020, according to these dreamers, drones will be able to fly and fight, discern enemies and incinerate them without human decision-making. They're even wondering about just how to program human ethics, maybe even American ethics, into them.

Okay, it may never happen, but it should still make you blink that out there in America are people eager to bring the fifth iteration of Terminator not to local multiplexes, but to the skies of our perfectly real world -- and that the Pentagon is already funding them to do so.



An Arms Race of One

Now, keep our present drones, those MQ-1 Predators and more advanced MQ-9 Reapers, in mind for a moment. Remember that, as you read, they're cruising Iraqi, Afghan, and Pakistani skies looking for potential "targets," and in Pakistan's tribal borderlands, are employing what Centcom commander General David Petraeus calls "the right of last resort" to take out "threats" (as well as tribespeople who just happen to be in the vicinity). And bear with me while I offer you a little potted history of the modern arms race.

Think of it as starting in the early years of the twentieth century when Imperial Britain, industrial juggernaut and colonial upstart Germany, and Imperial Japan all began to plan and build new generations of massive battleships or dreadnoughts (followed by "super-dreadnoughts") and so joined in a fierce naval arms race. That race took a leap onto land and into the skies in World War I when scientists and war planners began churning out techno-marvels of death and destruction meant to break the stalemate of trench warfare on the Western front.

Each year, starting in 1915, new or improved weaponry -- poison gas, upgrades of the airplane, the tank and then the improved tank -- appeared on or above the battlefield. Even as those marvels arrived, the next generation of weapons was already on the drawing boards. (In a sense, American auto makers took up the same battle plan in peacetime, unveiling new, ramped up car models each year.) As a result, when World War I ended in 1918, the war machinery of 1919 and 1920 was already being mapped out and developed. The next war, that is, and the weapons that would go with it were already in the mind's eye of war planners.

From the first years of the twentieth century on, an obvious prerequisite for what would prove a never-ending arms race was two to four great powers in potential collision, each of which had the ability to mobilize scientists, engineers, universities, and manufacturing power on a massive scale. World War II was, in these terms, a bonanza for invention as well as destruction. It ended, of course, with the Manhattan Project, that ne plus ultra of industrial-sized invention for destruction, which produced the first atomic bomb, and so the Cold War nuclear arms race that followed.

In that 45-year-long brush with extinction, the United States and the Soviet Union each mobilized a military-industrial complex to build ever newer generations of ever more devastating nuclear weaponry and delivery systems for a MAD (mutually assured destruction) world. At the peak of that two-superpower arms race, the resulting arsenals had the mad capacity to destroy eight or ten planets our size.

In 1991, after 73 years, the Soviet Union, that Evil Empire, simply evaporated, leaving but a single superpower without rivals astride planet Earth. And then came the unexpected thing: the arms race, which had been almost a century in the making, did not end. Instead, the unimaginable occurred and it simply morphed into a "race" of one with a finish line so distant -- the bomber of 2018, Earth-spanning weapons systems, a vast anti-ballistic missile system, and weaponry for the heavens of perhaps 2050 -- as to imply eternity.


The Pentagon and the military-industrial complex surrounding it -- including mega-arms manufacturers, advanced weapons labs, university science centers, and the official or semi-official think tanks that churned out strategies for future military domination -- went right on. After a brief, post-Cold War blip of time in which "peace dividends" were discussed but not implemented, the "race" actually began to amp up again, and after September 11, 2001, went into overdrive against "Islamo-fascism" (aka the Global War on Terror, or the Long War).

In those years, our Evil Empire of the moment, except in the minds of a clutch of influential neocons, was a ragtag terrorist outfit made up of perhaps a few thousand adherents and scattered global wannabes, capable of mounting spectacular-looking but infrequent and surprisingly low-tech attacks on symbolic American (and other) targets. Against this enemy, the Pentagon budget became, for a while, an excuse for anything.

This brings us to our present unbalanced world of military might in which the U.S. accounts for nearly half of all global military spending and the total Pentagon budget is almost six times that of the next contender, China. Recently, the Chinese have announced relatively modest plans to build up their military and create a genuinely offshore navy. Similarly, the Russians have moved to downsize and refinance their tattered armed forces and the industrial complex that goes with them, while upgrading their weapons systems. This could potentially make the country more competitive when it comes to global arms dealing, a market more than half of which has been cornered by the U.S. They are also threatening to upgrade their "strategic nuclear forces," even as Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama have agreed to push forward a new round of negotiations for nuclear reductions.

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has just announced cutbacks in some of the more outré and futuristic military R&D programs inherited from the Cold War era. The Navy's staggering 11 aircraft-carrier battle groups will over time also be reduced by one. Minor as that may seem, it does signal an imperial downsizing, given that the Navy refers to each of those carriers, essentially floating military bases, as "four and a half acres of sovereign U.S. territory." Nonetheless, the Pentagon budget will grow modestly and the U.S. will remain in a futuristic arms race of one, a significant part of which involves reserving the skies as well as the heavens for American power.




Assassination by Air

Speaking of controlling those skies, let's get back to UAVs. As futuristic weapons planning went, they started out pretty low-tech in the 1990s. Even today, the most commonplace of the two American armed drones, the Predator, costs only $4.5 million a pop, while the most advanced model, that Reaper -- both are produced by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems of San Diego -- comes in at $15 million. (Compare that to $350 million for a single F-22 Raptor, which has proved essentially useless in America's most recent counterinsurgency wars.) It's lucky UAVs are cheap, since they are also prone to crashing. Think of them as snowmobiles with wings that have received ever more sophisticated optics and powerful weaponry.

They came to life as surveillance tools during the wars over the former Yugoslavia, were armed by February 2001, were hastily pressed into operation in Afghanistan after 9/11, and like many weapons systems, began to evolve generationally. As they did, they developed from surveillance eyes in the sky into something far more sinister and previously restricted to terra firma: assassins. One of the earliest armed acts of a CIA-piloted Predator, back in November 2002, was an assassination mission over Yemen in which a jeep, reputedly transporting six suspected al-Qaeda operatives, was incinerated.

Today, the most advanced UAV, the Reaper, housing up to four Hellfire missiles and two 500-pound bombs, packs the sort of punch once reserved for a jet fighter. Dispatched to the skies over the farthest reaches of the American empire, powered by a 1,000-horsepower turbo prop engine at its rear, the Reaper can fly at up to 21,000 feet for up to 22 hours (until fuel runs short), streaming back live footage from three cameras (or sending it to troops on the ground) --- 16,000 hours of video a month.

No need to worry about a pilot dozing off during those 22 hours. The human crews "piloting" the drones, often from thousands of miles away, just change shifts when tired. So the planes are left to endlessly cruise Iraqi, Afghan, and Pakistani skies relentlessly seeking out, like so many terminators, specific enemies whose identities can, under certain circumstances -- or so the claims go -- be determined even through the walls of houses. When a "target" is found and agreed upon -- in Pakistan, the permission of Pakistani officials to fire is no longer considered necessary -- and a missile or bomb is unleashed, the cameras are so powerful that "pilots" can watch the facial expressions of those being liquidated on their computer monitors "as the bomb hits."

Approximately 5,500 UAVs, mostly unarmed -- less than 250 of them are Predators and Reapers -- now operate over Iraq and the Af-Pak (as in the Afghanistan-Pakistan) theater of operations. Part of the more-than-century-long development of war in the air, drones have become favorites of American military planners. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in particular has demanded increases in their production (and in the training of their "pilots") and urged that they be rushed in quantity into America's battle zones even before being fully perfected.

And yet, keep in mind that the UAV still remains in its (frightening) infancy. Such machines are not, of course, advanced cyborgs. They are in some ways not even all that advanced. Because someone now wants publicity for the drone-war program, reporters from the U.S. and elsewhere have recently been given "rare behind-the-scenes" looks at how it works. As a result, and also because the "covert war" in the skies over Pakistan makes Washington's secret warriors proud enough to regularly leak news of its "successes," we know something more about how our drone wars work.

We know, for instance, that at least part of the Air Force's Afghan UAV program runs out of Kandahar Air Base in southern Afghanistan. It turns out that, pilotless as the planes may be, a pilot does have to be nearby to guide them into the air and handle landings. As soon as the drone is up, a two-man team, a pilot and a "sensor monitor," backed by intelligence experts and meteorologists, takes over the controls either at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, or at Creech Air Force Base northwest of Las Vegas, some 7,000-odd miles away. (Other U.S. bases may be involved as well.)

According to Christopher Drew of the New York Times, who visited Davis-Monthan where Air National Guard members handle the controls, the pilots sit unglamorously "at 1990s-style computer banks filled with screens, inside dimly lit trailers." Depending on the needs of the moment, they can find themselves "over" either Afghanistan or Iraq, or even both on the same work shift. All of this is remarkably mundane -- pilot complaints generally run to problems "transitioning" back to wife and children after a day at the joystick over battle zones -- and at the same time, right out of Ali Baba's One Thousand and One Nights.

In those dimly lit trailers, the UAV teams have taken on an almost godlike power. Their job is to survey a place thousands of miles distant (and completely alien to their lives and experiences), assess what they see, and spot "targets" to eliminate -- even if on their somewhat antiquated computer systems it "takes up to 17 steps -- including entering data into pull-down windows -- to fire a missile" and incinerate those below. They only face danger, other than carpal tunnel syndrome, when they leave the job. A sign at Creech warns a pilot to "drive carefully"; "this, it says, is 'the most dangerous part of your day.'" Those involved claim that the fear and thrill of battle do not completely escape them, but the descriptions we now have of their world sound discomfortingly like a cross between the far frontiers of sci-fi and a call center in India.

The most intense of our various drone wars, the one on the other side of the Afghan border in Pakistan, is also the most mysterious. We know that some or all of the drones engaged in it take off from Pakistani airfields; that this "covert war" (which regularly makes front-page news) is run by the CIA out of its headquarters in Langley, Virginia; that its pilots are also located somewhere in the U.S.; and that at least some of them are hired private contractors.

William Saletan of Slate has described our drones as engaged in "a bloodless, all-seeing airborne hunting party." Of course, what was once an elite activity performed in person has been transformed into a 24/7 industrial activity fit for human drones.

Our drone wars also represent a new chapter in the history of assassination. Once upon a time, to be an assassin for a government was a furtive, shameful thing. In those days, of course, an assassin, if successful, took down a single person, not the targeted individual and anyone in the vicinity (or simply, if targeting intelligence proves wrong, anyone in the vicinity). No more poison-dart-tipped umbrellas, as in past KGB operations, or toxic cigars as in CIA ones -- not now that assassination has taken to the skies as an every day, all-year-round activity.

Today, we increasingly display our assassination wares with pride. To us, at least, it seems perfectly normal for assassination aerial operations to be a part of an open discussion in Washington and in the media. Consider this a new definition of "progress" in our world.


Proliferation and Sovereignty

This brings us back to arms races. They may be things of the past, but don't for a minute imagine that those hunter-killer skies won't someday fill with the drones of other nations. After all, one of the truths of our time is that no weapons system, no matter where first created, can be kept for long as private property. Today, we talk not of arms races, but of "proliferation," which is what you have once a global arms race of one takes hold.

In drone-world, the Chinese, the Russians, the Israelis, the Pakistanis, the Georgians, and the Iranians, among others, already have drones. In the Lebanon War of 2006, Hezbollah flew drones over Israel. In fact, if you have the skills, you can create your own drone, more or less in your living room (as your basic DIY drone website indicates). Undoubtedly, the future holds unnerving possibilities for small groups intent on assassination from the air.

Already the skies are growing more crowded. Three weeks ago, President Obama issued what Reuters termed "an unprecedented videotaped appeal to Iran... offering a 'new beginning' of diplomatic engagement to turn the page on decades of U.S. policy toward America's longtime foe." It was in the form of a Persian New Year's greeting. As the New York Times also reported, the U.S. military beat the president to the punch. They sent their own "greetings" to the Iranians a couple of days earlier.

After considering what Times reporters Rod Nordland and Alissa J. Rubin term "the delicacy of the incident at a time when the United States is seeking a thaw in its relations with Iran," the U.S. military sent out Col. James Hutton to meet the press and "confirm" that "allied aircraft" had shot down an "Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle" over Iraq on February 25th, more than three weeks earlier. Between that day and mid-March, the relevant Iraqi military and civilian officials were, the Times tells us, not informed. The reason? That drone was intruding on our (borrowed) airspace, not theirs. You probably didn't know it, but according to an Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman, "protection of Iraqi airspace remains an American responsibility for the next three years."

And naturally enough, we don't want other countries' drones in "our" airspace, though that's hardly likely to stop them. The Iranians, for instance, have already announced the development of "a new generation of 'spy drones' that provide real-time surveillance over enemy terrain."

Of course, when you openly control squads of assassination drones patrolling airspace over other countries, you've already made a mockery of whatever national sovereignty might once have meant. It's a precedent that may someday even make us distinctly uncomfortable. But not right now.

If you doubt this, check out the stream of self-congratulatory comments being leaked by Washington officials about our drone assassins. These often lead off news pieces about America's "covert war" over Pakistan ("An intense, six-month campaign of Predator strikes in Pakistan has taken such a toll on Al Qaeda that militants have begun turning violently on one another out of confusion and distrust, U.S. intelligence and counter-terrorism officials say..."); but be sure to read to the end of such pieces. Somewhere in them, after the successes have been touted and toted up, you get the bad news: "In fact, the stepped-up strikes have coincided with a deterioration in the security situation in Pakistan."

In Pakistan, a war of machine assassins is visibly provoking terror (and terrorism), as well as anger and hatred among people who are by no means fundamentalists. It is part of a larger destabilization of the country.

To those who know their air power history, that shouldn't be so surprising. Air power has had a remarkably stellar record when it comes to causing death and destruction, but a remarkably poor one when it comes to breaking the will of nations, peoples, or even modest-sized organizations. Our drone wars are destructive, but they are unlikely to achieve Washington's goals.





The Future Awaits Us

If you want to read the single most chilling line yet uttered about drone warfare American-style, it comes at the end of Christopher Drew's piece. He quotes Brookings Institution analyst Peter Singer saying of our Predators and Reapers: "[T]hese systems today are very much Model T Fords. These things will only get more advanced."

In other words, our drone wars are being fought with the airborne equivalent of cars with cranks, but the "race" to the horizon is already underway. By next year, some Reapers will have a far more sophisticated sensor system with 12 cameras capable of filming a two-and-a-half mile round area from 12 different angles. That program has been dubbed "Gorgon Stare", but it doesn't compare to the future 92-camera Argus program whose initial development is being funded by the Pentagon's blue-skies outfit, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Soon enough, a single pilot may be capable of handling not one but perhaps three drones, and drone armaments will undoubtedly grow progressively more powerful and "precise." In the meantime, BAE Systems already has a drone four years into development, the Taranis, that should someday be "completely autonomous"; that is, it theoretically will do without human pilots. Initial trials of a prototype are scheduled for 2010.

By 2020, so claim UAV enthusiasts, drones could be engaging in aerial battle and choosing their victims themselves. As Robert S. Boyd of McClatchy reported recently, "The Defense Department is financing studies of autonomous, or self-governing, armed robots that could find and destroy targets on their own. On-board computer programs, not flesh-and-blood people, would decide whether to fire their weapons."

It's a particular sadness of our world that, in Washington, only the military can dream about the future in this way, and then fund the "arms race" of 2018 or 2035. Rest assured that no one with a governmental red cent is researching the health care system of 2018 or 2035, or the public education system of those years.

In the meantime, the skies of our world are filling with round-the-clock assassins. They will only evolve and proliferate. Of course, when we check ourselves out in the movies, we like to identify with John Connor, the human resister, the good guy of this planet, against the evil machines. Elsewhere, however, as we fight our drone wars ever more openly, as we field mechanical techno-terminators with all-seeing eyes and loose our missiles from thousands of miles away ("Hasta la Vista, Baby!"), we undoubtedly look like something other than a nation of John Connors to those living under the Predators. It may not matter if the joysticks and consoles on those advanced machines are somewhat antiquated; to others, we are now the terminators of the planet, implacable machine assassins.

True, we can't send our drones into the past to wipe out the young Ayman al-Zawahiri in Cairo or the teenage Osama bin Laden speeding down some Saudi road in his gray Mercedes sedan. True, the UAV enthusiasts, who are already imagining all-drone wars run by "ethical" machines, may never see anything like their fantasies come to pass. Still, the fact that without the help of a single advanced cyborg we are already in the process of creating a Terminator planet should give us pause for thought... or not.

Time For a Closer Look

For several decades the state and its willing accomplices in the media and talk radio have marginalized and demonized anyone who alleges involvement of the state in illegal activities or conspiracies to provide false information to support its illegal wars and other agendas. Those who do so are referred to as "conspiracy nuts" or in the case of Rush Limbaugh, Keepers of Odd Knowledge Society members. (K.O.O.K.S)

To believe the state is never involved in illegal conspiracies would require one to believe the state incapable of criminal behavior and Julius Caesar was killed in a random walk-by knifing.

Antarctic Sea Ice Up Over 43% Since 1980, Where Is The Media?


Still no sign of the national media on the extraordinary growth of sea ice at the antarctic. They sure haven't missed a chance to point out the relatively small loss of ice at the arctic. Did did it ever occur to them that perhaps there is a natural process at work that has shifted ice growth from one pole to the other? Do they not want to admit that there are things man doesn't yet understand about how this planet works?
Remember that some of the “models” predicted increased antarctic ice, but they predicted increased “interior ice” due to increased snow fall. None of the models predicted increased sea ice around the antarctic. Yet that is what we have, and not just a little increase but a 43% increase since 1980!. This is highly significant yet hardly anyone in the main stream media (MSM) is talking about it.

US Behind Recent Iraq Bomb Attacks

An Iraqi lawmaker alleges that 'the occupiers' are behind the recent bomb blasts in Iraq basing his claims on the fact that the US has access to Iraq's security and intelligence files.

Maha al-Dori, a member of Sadr fraction in the Iraqi parliament said that "the occupiers are causing disarray in Iraq with aim of at taking control over the country's affairs."

Al-Dori, who was speaking to al-Alam on Wednesday, also noted that Sadr's anti-occupation movement has called on Iraqis to hold a demonstration, calling for the occupiers' - a term referring to American forces -- immediate withdrawal from Iraq.

He added that the demonstration would also urge the release of the innocent detainees, while protesting at calls for the return of the Baath party. Citing that the escalating violence in the country is coinciding with the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq, the Sadrist lawmaker said that 'the occupiers' are responsible for the insecurity, linking the recent blast to American forces.

The Global Coup d'Etat by Philip Jones



The term "New World Order" refers to the advent of a Totalitarian World Government. The current push towards achieving this nirvana has at it's core, a powerful and secretive group known as the Illuminati, which has been conspiring to take control of the the world for millennia. They aim to do this by the introduction of an autonomous Global State, which would supersede and replace the sovereign nations of the world. Most if not all significant occurrences in politics and international business are manipulated, orchestrated and designed by this extremely influential cabal operating through many front organisations, such as the Bilderberg Group, The Club Of Rome, The Royal Institute For International Affairs and a plethora of others, all of which connect at the very top of the Illuminati's symbolic pyramid.

But the idea of such a `One World State` is not new, and the origins go back into the very shadows of antiquity, and to a presence that has been a constant thorn in the side of mankind since it's very beginning.

The One World State and the Temptation of Christ

The Bible tells us that the concept of a `One World State` was put forward by Satan to Christ as one of the `Temptations in the Wilderness`. We are told that it was firmly rejected by Jesus. Whether one accepts the Scriptures or not, it cannot be argued that Christ's teachings, which involve personal freedom and free will, are totally incompatible with the concept of a `One World State` which would mandate and coerce diverse peoples and cultures into a centralised dictatorship. Satan's offer was conditional on Christ's worship of him. This temptation has been put to men throughout the ages, and it is not surprising to discover that many of the most influential men throughout history, and enthusiastic advocates of world government, have been Satanists. I speak of men such as Marx, Bakunin, Moses Hess, Stalin, to name but a few, together with a near full compliment of the more recent crop of Satan worshiping world `leaders` such as the Bush's, Clintons, Blairs and the current `Saviour` of the `Free World` along with them`

The outlines of the centuries old conflict between good and evil were laid down in the Gospels in as much as `God is the god of truth`, while Satan is the `father of lies and there is no truth in him`. And still on yet another level "You must serve God or money. You cannot serve both".

The present drive towards the setting up of a World State, that can increasingly be seen to be not atheist in construct, but Satanic and Anti God, has it's origins in Ancient Babylon, with the coalescing of the `Kabballah`, but which in it's modern form can be said to have begun gaining impetus in the 19th century, with the advent of Marxist Socialist theory, together with the growth of International Banking.

"Marxism you say is the bitterest opponent of Capitalism, which is sacred to us. For the simple reason that they are opposite poles, they deliver over to us the two poles of the earth and permit us to be it's axis. Within these two opposites, we find ourselves identified in the Internationale. And these doctrines of the two poles of society, meet in their unity of purpose, the renewal of the world from above by the control of wealth, and from below by revolution". The Comte de Saint Aulair in `Geneve contre la Paix` Libraire Plan, Paris 1936.

Communism

Among the requirements outlined in the `Communist Manifesto` for the establishment of a One World Dictatorship were:

1.The abolition of private property;

2.The abolition of the family;

3.The abolition of countries and nationalities;

4.The abolition of religious liberty and freedom of conscience, together with all religion and all morality.

In the context of the above, the word `Communist` is in many ways interchangeable with all those who aspire to a One World State, including Marxists, Zionists, Fabian Socialists, The United Nations, The Parliamentary Group for World Government, Trilateral Commission, CFR, Bilderberg Group, and even the World Council of Churches, plus a plethora of fellow travelers.

Marx formed the first `Internationale` with Mikhail Bakunin, the `God Father` of Anarchism who wrote,

"In this revolution, we will have to awaken the devil in people, to stir up the basest passions".

Doesn't this describe the world we live in today? All around is social decay and chaos, intended and designed to create the desired response in the people, that `something must be done`. We see violence, pornography, gambling, alcohol and drug abuse, all the vices extolled and normalised, together with the perverse promotion of homosexuality as a `valid lifestyle choice` and extreme feminism, disguised as `women's rights` being used to socially and morally emasculate men, turning God's natural order on it's head, and weakening that element in society most likely to become an obstruction to the plan. More recently, the European Union tabled a motion to legalise Pedophilia. How far down this road do we need to be driven before people say enough? The Masonic Motto `Out of Chaos Order` aptly applies to our world today, and Satan appears to reign supreme.

When Satanists are initiated into the seventh degree, they swear that their overriding principal will be, " Nothing is true and everything is permitted".

Is this not indicative of the attitudes and conduct of our leaders and so called celebrities today? Whether they be Bankers, Politicians, Senior Police Officers, Professionals, Bureaucrats, Pop Stars or Film Actors, I believe that even the most cursory examination of all or any of the most prominent individuals active in the above spheres of influence will show that they are deeply connected to both Freemasonry and Satanism, and are working knowingly or otherwise, to bringing their `Master's` goal of a tyrannical world state into being, and sooner rather than later.

In `On Hegel`, Marx wrote,

" Words I teach all mixed up in a devilish muddle. Thus anyone may think just what he chooses to think".

And that is exactly why so many have followed `the yellow brick road`, towards the Dictatorial One World State that the followers of Satan advocate. They have been duped, confused, mesmerised. They have not thought out what it means to lose one's freedom and national identity, or that the diabolical depopulation agenda is real and evidential and that the slaughter of millions is a very real possibility, to be achieved via a bewildering array of means not least of which might include a `stage managed` Third World War. The `FEMA` camps in the US and the massive number of similar installations throughout Europe http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=8134 attest to the deadly seriousness of the situation. The `Dark One` is playing for keeps this time.

The Genetic Requirements

For the establishment of a World Dictatorship, there were three main requirements. The Communist and revolutionary teachings of Marx and associates must be integrated, disseminated and universally accepted. The destabilizing of nations morally and financially with the draining away of money and assets outside of the control of any nation would have to be achieved, along with the provision of a `Master Race` to provide the dictators and rulers.
In his book `Terrorism and The Illuminati`, Canadian Author David Livingstone describes such a `race` in the clearest of terms thus;

"The Illuminati represent the descendants of the Fallen Angels who inhabited the lost continent of Atlantis. These Fallen Angels interbred with humans, to whom they taught the Ancient Wisdom. Therefore, throughout the centuries, the Illuminati have been carefully intermarrying with each other, to preserve their "sacred" bloodline, handing on their esoteric knowledge from generation to generation. For this reason, they also refer to themselves as "the Family".

There are thirteen core bloodlines at the top of this `Family` and it is these `people`, who allegedly trace their lineage back to Babylon, and beyond into the distant past, who intend to become `Again as Gods` once their `Dark Lord's` World State becomes at last a reality. From one of these lines of decent, believed by many to be the Merovingian Bloodline, will come it is said, the supposedly beneficent `World Leader`, sometimes referred to as the `Anti Christ`.

These people or rather `things` see us as cattle, for culling and they have been very busy doing so throughout history. But today with the weaponry, medicines, vaccines and poisons available to them, it is difficult to see how their `Agenda` can be halted. Particularly when one considers the levels of apathy prevalent amongst what they term `The Sheeple`..

The British writer, `Bertrand Russell` had this to say back in 1954, "Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will continue until they become separate species. A revolt of the plebs against the masters would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton".

Mr Russell wasn't so far `off base` as a walk down any City High Street these days will confirm. However, knowing how deeply `connected` Bertrand Russell was, I am convinced he knew that the `rulers and ruled` have always been different species.

In `Treason at Westminster` Kitty Little writes, "By 1963, the UN Convention on Racial Discrimination had provided for the massive movements of population that would in turn provide for the interbreeding of genetically incompatible races, and for the positive discrimination against the native populations of European decent who were considered to be the greatest obstacle to their plans. A parallel UNESCO Convention against `discrimination` in education had provided the impetus for race, sex, parentage, local and national loyalties and all forms of religion as well as ability, to be regarded as forms of `discrimination` and therefore to be abolished. Children were deemed to have a `human right` to be protected from religious indoctrination. All this, in addition to the encouragement of oral contraceptives (that lead to physical, mental and moral degeneration) vasectomy, drug abuse, and the current fashion for genetic engineering with artificial insemination and `test tube` babies, was designed for the debasing of the human race".

Financial Requirements

Taking financial control out of the hands of national governments was an absolute requirement if the Global Dictatorship was to become a reality. This was seen as a preliminary to the operation of a system of credit whereby only those in good standing with the `World Government` would receive the means of subsistence. Hence the fact that the EU, the prototype for World Government, has concentrated it's focus on undermining national industries, taking control of food supplies, and by dictating farming and fishing policies, ensuring that the member nations remain dependent on the centralized European State for essentials.

Another example of how the `One Worlders` coerce and manipulate countries economically is the way the World Bank discriminates in favour only of those nations who comply with it's genocidal depopulation goals, mandating the use of `family planning` via contraception, and implementing compulsory vaccination policies on whole swathes of people in the developing world, resulting in the mass sterilisation of native women as a primary goal, and chemically induced miscarriages as an important secondary `failsafe`.

The fanatical opposition to South Africa, before the takeover by the majority population can also be placed into context when one comprehends the `Agenda`. South Africa had and still has the largest gold reserves on this planet, and without taking control of that, the credit trap could not be sprung.

Development of the Plan


Since the launch of World Communism, the Illuminati's plans have developed and matured. In 1928, the Communist Internationale presented a three stage plan for achieving World Government:

1.
Socialise the economies of all nations.
2.
Bring about the regional unions of various groupings of these nations.
3.
Amalgamate all these groupings into a final World Union.


In 1942 Stalin, in cooperation with Western Marxists was intent on laying the foundations of the UN. He defined the necessary goals for the final World Coup d 'Etat as:

1.
Confuse, disorganise and destroy the forces of private capitalism.
2.
Bring all nations together into a single world system of economy.
3.
Force the industrialised nations to pour prolonged financial aid into the developing countries.
4.
Divide the world into regional groups as a transitional stage to total World Government.


As any informed observer must be able to see, the plan is far advanced and in it's final stages. Can anyone argue that goals one and three have not already been attained. Number four is partly fulfilled in the form of the European Union, and plans for a North American Union are beyond the planning stages. The European Single Currency or Euro is a `stepping stone` towards the World Currency, to be possibly called the `Phoenix`, symbolising Satan rising from the ashes of the old order to establish the new.

Working on the assumption that the point of no return would be reached with the establishment of European Union, the Illuminati in their obsession with all things Satanic, created a symbolic `Monetary Snake` that would penetrate into the heart of nations and undermine their power. They saw it primarily as an encirclement of Europe and in as much as, "When this ring closes, all the States Of Europe will be locked in it's coil as in a powerful vice". This statement was made in the 19th Century and it was considered that by `enchanting` Europe, it would ultimately encompass the whole world..

The current manipulated global financial crisis is a ruse to achieve a universal system of money, and with it, World Government will be achieved by `hook or crook`, by financial or murderous means. Either way, the point of no return seems long past..

The United Nations and The European Union

Together with UNESCO, the UN has insinuated itself globally into the very fabric of nation states, corrupting and undermining them at every turn. In the field of education for example, the intentions of the `One Worlders` who controlled UNESCO (and still do) were:

1.
To deride, ridicule and destroy any feelings of patriotism or loyalty to their country amongst the youth.
2.
Instill in the youth an outlook of internationalism that could easily be reconciled at a later date with the concept of a One World Dictatorship.
3.
Indoctrinate the youth to embrace Marxist Socialism (under different labels such as Social Democracy for example) as being the correct social and political outlook.
4.
Neutralize the youth against the religious influences in the home along with all concepts of rigid morality.


The establishment of a European Union has been critical for the Illuminati's plans to create a `World Government` and the formation of the UN was seen as a necessary preliminary, in the same way as the EU and NAU are seen as stepping stones to World Government. When the UK entered the EEC back in 1973, the British people were told deliberate lies about the intentions and significance of that move. The now familiar deceits were new back then, the primary `mother of all lies` being no loss of sovereignty. The Treaty of Rome empowered the Commission to formulate Directives which took precedence over national laws. There was no requirement to make these laws public, even though they had to be implemented.

Since then, with each treacherous treaty signed, the peoples of Europe have been lead by the nose ever closer into a Federal `Rat Trap` from which there is no way out. Jean Monnet, the so called `father` of the EU put it like this;

"Europe's nations should be guided towards the superstate without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation'.

Last years Irish referendum debacle exposed the EU for what it is; A Totalitarian State in the making, albeit of the `drip by drip variety`. It's refusal to accept the `democratic` will of the Irish people is little more than a precursor of what is to come.

The Treaty of Lisbon had been absolutely critical for the Illuminati/Communist plans for the World Dictatorship, and having come thus far, it was clear even before the Irish Referendum that the `Euro Marxists` would not allow something as insignificant as Democracy to get in their way. But the question begs to be asked; "How on earth have they managed to come this far without detection ?

The research of Dr Kitty Little back in the 1960's and on through the 1980's describes how the activities of the members of a nameless subversive organisation at Oxford University back in 1940 set the agenda for how the goal of a Federal European State would be achieved. In her pamphlet, `Treason at Westminster, she writes;

" At a meeting in Oxford in 1940, the head of the political section of the subversive organisation described it's intentions, and MI5 received a report from Moscow the following year outlining the same plans. Members of the political section of the subversive organisation were to infiltrate the Political Parties. Those in the Conservative Party would lean to the left, those in Labour to the right. The reason being that the British it was said, distrust extremists. Those infiltrating the Conservatives were to be responsible for the `financial smokescreen` that would conceal the changeover from democracy to a Marxist Dictatorship. The description given fits entirely the manner in which the Heath Government took us into the EEC and explains the Tory party's support for the Treaty establishing European Union."

Throughout, the method has been infiltration from the top. Although the people of a `member state` may continue to vote in national elections, the candidates are chosen by a very small select number of people, and since WWII, large numbers of the subversive organisation have entered the various national parliaments. I think it is now safe to say that this insinuation of subversives is mirrored globally and particularly throughout the west, and since the great weakness in the `party` system is the manner in which candidates are chosen, this provides fertile ground for subversive activity. A further weakness in the electoral system of the UK for example has been the `packing` of marginal `seats` where strong Anti Marxist candidates are standing, with immigrants who vote the way their own `bought and paid for` leaders tell them. Thereby circumventing true democracy, and undermining those prepared to make a stand against the subversives bent on achieving the Federal Superstate as the initial goal, and the `World State` as the final solution to the `democratic question`.

The Damage Done

Over the past thirty or so years, the primary objectives of the EEC Commission has been to pave the way for the Treaty Establishing European Union, and thereafter the creation of the Federal Superstate. The laws emanating from Brussels have seriously damaged the industry and defenses of member states and have introduced many changes needed for the smooth transition to a dictatorship. The significance of handing over vast sums of taxpayers money to the EU, only to have them returned, should not be overlooked. The money returned is spent according to the wishes of the Commissioners , mostly on altering the infrastructure of the nation that it may more easily be split into smaller administrative units, thereafter to be more easily absorbed into the Federation..

In all of this, the complicity of national governments has been imperative, and the levels of treachery unprecedented in human history.

The Penultimate Step

Later this year, the Irish will be coerced into another referendum, and this time, there will be nothing left to chance. One way or the other, the Communitarian's of the EU will fabricate their `yes` vote and with the Lisbon Treaty finally ratified, it will be full steam ahead towards the Supestate.

Within it's murky pages, the Lisbon Treaty holds no provision for the continuation of the Monarchy (not that in this writer's opinion that is any great loss, considering who and what they are) or National Governments. The Commissioners would become absolute rulers, with a Presidential `Puppet` fronting the tyranny. The Nation States of Europe will be divided into geographical regions divorced from all historical and traditional reality. The Map Of The Superstate to be, shows ten such regions in Britain including Scotland and Wales and Northern Ireland, and four in the Irish Republic. It rejects entirely the existence of England.

The European Union is the `prototype` for the other world `Super Regions` intended to become a reality in the near future as illustrated in the diagram below.

The Final Solution

The current financial crisis is intended to terrify the people of the world into accepting World Government. The calls for `New World Order` and for `global solutions for global problems` are increasingly being heard and transmitted across the airwaves by the media sycophants in thrall to the Globalists. Meanwhile, the political puppets are playing their part as dictated to them by their Illuminati masters, and although the `economic` route appears to be the chosen vehicle to attain World Power for now, does anyone doubt that if they feel it expedient, they will launch a global war on a scale hitherto thought unimaginable. We are not there yet, but the world situation deteriorates daily.

This intended `Coup d' Etat` with the installation of Satan's' World State the intended `Final Solution`, is by far the most far reaching and sweeping change seen in human affairs in millenia, yet we have not been told about it by our elected leaders. The reason for this deafening silence is quite simple. The `Family` controls virtually everything it needs to ensure that the secrecy of the `Great Work` remains hidden, right up until that time, when like all conspiracies, it must raise it's head above the `ramparts` for all to see. This is happening now, but the mass of humanity is still in total denial, and seems to prefer to stick it's collective head in the sand and hope all the bad things just go away. There are comparatively few involved in this criminal conspiracy and if all those who are unconsciously helping them stopped doing so, the plan would collapse.

As Kitty Little wrote, "Publicity is what they fear most and it will defeat them".

Drug Decriminalization in Portugal

In 2001, Portugal began a remarkable policy experiment, decriminalizing all drugs, including cocaine and heroin. Some predicted disastrous results—that drug addiction rates would soar and the country would become a haven for "drug tourists." Now that several years have passed, policy experts can study the results. In a new paper for the Cato Institute, attorney and author Glenn Greenwald closely examines the Portugal experiment and concludes that the doomsayers were wrong. There is now a widespread consensus in Portugal that decriminalization has been a success. The debate in Portugal has shifted rather dramatically to minor adjustments in the existing arrangement. There is no real debate about whether drugs should once again be criminalized.

Israeli Settlers Rampage In Arab Village

The Beit Ayn settlement outpost near Hebron
Eyewitnesses said as many as a hundred settler terrorists descended on the small village of Safa, 10 kilometers north west of al-Khalil, with the purpose of carrying out a pogrom against local inhabitants.

The terrorists were escorted by several Israeli army soldiers who reportedly made no effort to stop the terrorists who were shouting “death to the Arabs.”

The Palestinians, fearing for their lives, hurled stones at the rampaging settlers to prevent them from setting fire to Palestinian property, prompting Israeli soldiers to open fire at the Palestinians.

At least 28 people were reportedly wounded with live ammunition, including a boy who was shot in the chest.

2009 - Year of The Slave

So, what is a slave? How do we define a slave? What test do we use to tell if someone is a slave. What makes them different from free people?

Free people can say “no”. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say “no”. If someone demands that you do something and you can say “no” and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied.

Freedom is the freedom to say "no."

A Declaration of Separation

We claim the right to exist, and we will defend it.

We do not seek to overthrow anything. We do not seek to control anything. We merely wish to be left alone.

All we ever wanted was to live in peace with our friends and neighbors. For a long, long time we bore insults to our liberty; we took blows, we did what we could to avoid injury and we worked through the system to get the offenses to stop. That has now changed.

We no longer see any benefit in working through the world’s systems. At some point, working within a system becomes cowardly and immoral; for us, that point has arrived. Regardless of the parties in power, their governments have continued to restrict, restrain and punish us. We hereby reject them all. We hereby withdraw from them all. We hold the ruling states of this world and all that appertains to them to be self-serving and opposed to humanity.

We now withdraw our obedience and reclaim the right to strike back when struck. We will not initiate force, but we do reserve the right to answer it. We did not choose this – it was forced upon us.

==== To The Governments of Earth: ====

You are building cages for all that is human. In the name of protection, you have intruded into all areas of human life, far exceeding the reach of any Caesar. You claim ultimate control of our property and our decisions, of our travels and even our identities. You claim ownership of humanity far beyond the dreams of any Emperor of any previous era.

Understand clearly: We reject your authority and we reject your legitimacy. We do not believe that you have any right to do the things you do. You have massive power, but no right to impose it upon us and no legitimacy. We have forsaken you. We are no longer your citizens or your subjects. Your systems are inherently anti-human, even if all their operators are not.

We are not merely angry young people. We are fathers and mothers; aunts, uncles and grandparents; we are business owners and trusted employees; we are mechanics and engineers and farmers. We are nurses and accountants and students and executives.
We are on every continent.

This is not a burst of outrage; this is a sober declaration that we no longer accept unearned suffering as our role in life.

For long decades we sat quietly, hoping that things would turn around. We took no actions; we suffered along with everyone else. But after having our limits pushed back again and again, we have given up on your systems. If our fellow inhabitants of this planet wish to accept your rule, they are free to do so. We will not try to stop them. We, however, will no longer accept your constraints upon us.

- From now on, when you hurt us, we will bite back. If you leave us alone we will leave you alone and you can continue to rule your subjects. We are happy to live quietly.

But if you come after us, there will be consequences. You caused this because of your fetish for control and power. The chief men and women among you are pathologically driven to control everyone and everything that moves upon this planet. You have made yourselves the judge of every human activity. No god-king of the ancient world ever had the power that your systems do.

You have created a world where only the neutered are safe and where only outlaws are free.

Netenyahu to the West: Destroy Iran Before We Destroy You

Miller further predicted that the aim of this “very serious” conversation would be to “scare the daylights out of the president”, the ultimate objective of which would be mobilizing–not only the United States, but indeed the entire “international community”–into addressing the Iranian situation in a manner deemed “acceptable” to the Jewish state and her agenda.

Drugging of Children In UK Care Homes Lead to Birth Defects

The practice of sedating troublesome teenagers in care homes was today being linked to birth defects after ten women came forward to complain that their children had been born damaged.

As teenagers at the Church of England-run Kendall House in Gravesend, Kent, the ten were routinely restrained with huge doses of tranquillisers and other drugs.

Sedating children was allegedly commonplace in care homes during the 1970s and 1980s, although the levels of drugging at Kendall House,a home for girls with problems, appear to have been unusual.

G20 Police Assault on Man Who Died

Britain is Protecting the Biggest Heroin Crop of All Time

The Taliban had reduced the opium crop to precisely nil. I would not advocate their methods for doing this, which involved lopping bits, often vital bits, off people. The Taliban were a bunch of mad and deeply unpleasant religious fanatics. But one of the things they were vehemently against was opium.

That is an inconvenient truth that our spin has managed to obscure. Nobody has denied the sincerity of the Taliban's crazy religious zeal, and they were as unlikely to sell you heroin as a bottle of Johnnie Walker.

Our economic achievement in Afghanistan goes well beyond the simple production of raw opium. In fact Afghanistan no longer exports much raw opium at all. It has succeeded in what our international aid efforts urge every developing country to do. Afghanistan has gone into manufacturing and 'value-added' operations.

It now exports not opium, but heroin. Opium is converted into heroin on an industrial scale, not in kitchens but in factories. Millions of gallons of the chemicals needed for this process are shipped into Afghanistan by tanker. The tankers and bulk opium lorries on the way to the factories share the roads, improved by American aid, with Nato troops.

How can this have happened, and on this scale? The answer is simple. The four largest players in the heroin business are all senior members of the Afghan government ? the government that our soldiers are fighting and dying to protect.

Queen Elizabeth the Second is the Largest Landowner on Earth


Queen Elizabeth II, head of state of the United Kingdom and of 31 other states and territories, is the legal owner of about 6,600 million acres of land, one sixth of the earth’s non ocean surface.

She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries, and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory.
This land ownership is separate from her role as head of state and is different from other monarchies where no such claim is made – Norway, Belgium, Denmark etc.

The value of her land holding. £17,600,000,000,000 (approx). (£17.6 Trillion)
And the witch takes money off the taxpayer too!!!

US Helped Pol Pots's Rise to Power

The Khmer Rouge's most notorious prison chief told a Cambodia war crimes court today US policies in the 1970s contributed to the rise of Pol Pot's genocidal regime.

Kaing Guek Eav, or 'Duch,' the brutal director of the infamous torture centre S-21 said he believed the Khmer Rouge regime would have died out had the US not supported the right wing military government that removed Prince Norodom Sihanouk from power in a 1970 coup.

"I think the Khmer Rouge would already have been demolished," he said. "But Mr. Kissinger (the then U.S. Secretary of State) and Richard Nixon were quick (to back General Lon Nol, the right wing coup leader), and then the Khmer Rouge noted the golden opportunity."

Congresswoman Bachmann: Obama Wants 'Re-Education' Camps For Young People

Appearing on Minnesota radio station KTLK-AM, (h/t Minnesota Independent) the Republican congresswoman expressed her concern that White House was trying to put in place "re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward." Furthering the Obama-as-autocrat theme, Bachmann said the youngsters would "then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums."

The Psychiatrists Who Programmed the Sleepers are Being Killed

Over a week ago one of my sources told me that the psychiatrists who programmed Sleepers are being hunted down and killed. It's being done like this because the psychiatrists are easier to find than are their victims.

A programmed sleeper needs timely "recall visits" to keep the program in place. If there is no programmer around to keep these people in their programs, a number of things might happen.

Some people will wake up, as if they have been a victim of amnesia. They will remember their "other" life and they will try to return to it and to the people they once loved.

The example above is one of the tragic, but sometimes heartwarming cases where a long lost child returns home with a new family. Sadly, sometimes the long lost spouse returns home only to find that his/her former spouse has remarried and is in love with someone else.

The examples above are NOT the norm.

What usually happens if a programmed sleeper is no longer kept in his program?

They start to destruct.

Some of the signs they exhibit are instability, anger, wild bursts of screaming and yelling. Possibly threatening to kill or destroy those around them.

These are minor and with proper care the person can be brought out of their programming. Sadly, most of these people will not have an informed person around to help them. Some may end up in a mental institution under heavy medication... literally a chemical lobotomy.
