Police Brutalize Cerebral Palsy Victim at London Protest

The appalling attack on cerebral palsy victim Jody McIntyre by the London Police in last weeks student protests is only equaled by the transparent attempts of the BBC to pillory, intimidate, and discredit him in this very revealing interview.

Ahab on the Quarter Deck-Melville and the American Savage

At the very least, the former United States of America is a grandiose place, once a veritable paradise of natural wilderness and beckoning opportunity, slumbering in the primeval dream of world history, mutely awaiting its eventual blood-soaked despoiling by the forward colonization of Western European chauvinistic imperialism which, after washing back and forth from sea to shining sea in a veritable orgy of unparalleled sanguinary fury of greed and rapacious opportunism, creative of the most singular territorial expansion and prodigious elaboration of the scientific technological imperative, seems to have finally drained from its immense and potentially infinite promise the last vestiges of such an enormous bounty and, more importantly, the unquenchable spirit of pioneering adventure which had come to represent at once the immense and unforgivable excesses of a piratical, unyielding triumphalism and yet also an unprecedented development immeasurably advancing our present civilization and now reigning as its supreme, though rapidly fading, world empire.

One has to ask whether this unparalleled and extraordinary revolution in human history
embodies an evolution of civilization as a distinct entity or merely embodies "an advanced state of barbarism" as Louis Leary points out in his introduction to Herman Melville's "His Fifty Years Of Exile-Israel Potter". Indeed, Georges Cemenceau expands upon this observation in his pithy and pejorative assessment- "America has gone from barbarism to degeneracy without the usual interim of civilization". Melville himself, in "Israel Potter", gives voice to this singular dichotomy in the portrait he paints of the legendary revolutionary war hero John Paul Jones.
"Sharing the same blood with England, and yet her proved foe in two wars-not wholly inclined at bottom to forget an old grudge-intrepid, unprincipled, reckless, predatory, with boundless ambition, civilized in externals but a savage at heart, America is, or may yet be the Paul Jones of nations."

Of course one of the most rarely mentioned facts regarding the implosion of the national economy is the staggering and unsustainable military expenditures which have for decades drained the public coffers at an exponential and alarming rate as the American military juggernaut rampages across an ever widening international landscape. Little mention is ever made of the absolute dependence of so-called defense spending upon the unabated issuance of US Treasury debt. (see Scarcely Surprising Correlation on Kushmonster). There is no little irony in the fact that the holder of some $2 trillion of that debt, the People's Republic of China, is also now emerging as the most significant challenge to US military dominance since the collapse of the former Soviet Union. (see The Precipice and the Abyss on Kushmonster) Indeed, such a precarious economic and geopolitical arrangement has led some commentators to question just how long China will exchange the rapidly diminishing economic advantages once inherent in such a relationship for its ongoing geopolitical containment and encirclement by the West.

John Paul Jones' incredible forays into British territorial waters and shipping lanes and even the English mainland during the revolutionary war presaged the maritime supremacy with which the nascent United States Navy came to assume from its former sovereign. Jones' attack on the English coal exporting port of Whitehaven and the legendary battle of the Bon Homme Richard with the British warship Serapis mark the advent of the more that a century of dominance by US Navy on the high seas, laying the groundwork for unchallenged ascendancy of the American imperialism and empire.

As such an ascendancy has become increasingly challenged by the sustained growth in China's naval and air power and its expanding footprint especially throughout South Asia and into the African continent, the US has sought to reinforce its own presence with Japanese and South Korean allies in the South China and Yellow Seas. Of course this geopolitical stratagem only attempts to seal the encirclement of the Middle Kingdom already underway by the massive US military presence across the Middle East and through Central Asia as outlined in Zbigniev Brzezinski's "The Grand Chessboard"

Ahab on the Quarterdeck

Melville's most notable anti-hero is a figure who has come to symbolize the maniacal obsessions which wrack the American psyche. Captain Ahab's pursuit of the monster Moby Dick is a latter day parable which exposes the lengths to which the dark nether worlds of our collective unconscious can compell our actions. The paranoid and Puritanical pursuit of evil leads inexorably to the cathartic cataclysm which consumes the Pequod and its crew as the corpse of their captain lashed to the Whale beckons them to their doom. Melville's prophetic vision prefigured the ultimate fate of the United States now being realized as the nation, awash in a deluge of massive social dislocation and burdened with unsustainable debt, pitches blindly across a darkening and swelling sea like a rudderless vessel driven to inevitable shipwreck.

The thirty sixth chapter of "Moby Dick" entitled The Quarterdeck bears witness to the critical moment when, nailing an ounce of gold to the mainmast, Ahab reveals the nature of his monomaniacal quest to which each member of the crew has unwittingly committed. In a druidical incantation of mesmerizing intensity, Ahab, with a preternatural vehemence, elicits from his crew a sacerdotal oath sealed with draughts of an infernal grog to hunt Moby Dick to the death.

"It seemed as though, by some nameless interior volition he would fain have shocked into them the same fiery emotion accumulated with the Leyden Jar of his own magnetic life. The three mates quailed before his strong sustained and mystic aspect..."

"Now, three to three, ye stand. Commend the murderous chalices! Bestow them, ye who are now made partners to this indissoluble league Ha! Starbuck, the deed is done! Yon ratifying sun now waits to sit upon it.Drink ye harpooners! Drink and swear, ye men that man the deathful whaleboats bow-Death to Moby Dick! God hunt us all if we do not hunt Moby Dick to his death"

It takes little imagination to discern the obvious parallels that can be drawn between Melville's creative evocations and similar strain of malignant and obsessive preoccupation with projected evil which has haunted this nation since its inception. From the early days of Puritanism to the tent house revivalism of modern neo-conservative politics, the idée fixe of american consciousness has been the projection of an unacknowledged subjective evil into a monolithic, implacable force to be hunted down at all costs and exterminated. In keeping with the ritualistic conjurations of Ahab's mediumistic exhortations to the crew of the Pequod, the resultant crusades have invariably assumed the transports of a religious fervor leavened with a toxic admixture of jingoism, xenophobia, and overt racism. Carl Jung referred to this collective aberration as a psychological phenomenon which overwhelms and ultimately effaces individual responsibility and conscience in a devastating flood of unconscious contents. This "participation mystique" he suggests was responsible for the collective psychosis which gripped the 80 millions of German peoples in their fatal fascination with their Führer.

The Princes of This World

Our own present elaborate stage-managed foreign policy misadventure has a multiplicity of Ahabs something like the army of Agent Smiths in the film, The Matrix. With the subliminal manipulations of their Bernaysian propaganda combine piggybacked on the pulsating waves of the electronic media and disseminated through controlled organs of print media, a bewitching and incantatory spell is cast, enlisting millions of "partners to this indissoluble league" mutely and obediently manning the levers, wheels and cogs of the diabolic machinery carrying them to the inevitable looming cataclysm of destruction. While we acknowledge that greed and the lust for absolute power are productive of the greatest ills that have befallen humanity, it is also proverbial that the ordinary mortal is often quickly ensnared by the duplicitous schemes these madmen have concocted for the attainment of their nefarious aims. Yet Ahab's vendetta against Leviathan partakes of a more profound metaphysical reality and wars not only against the vast and undecipherable natural world which imprisons and torments his spirit but against God Himself much as does Milton's Lucifer rebel against his heavenly confines in the epic "Paradise Lost".

Yet, far from transpiring in what might be thought by many to be some airy realm of
imaginative flights and quaint myths and the like, this human tragedy partakes of our own flesh and blood and ultimately determines the eternal destiny of the incorporeal spirit. It was not without supreme and ultimate cogency that the biblical narrative presents us with the ironic tableau of Lucifer, the Prince of this world tempting the Prince of Peace with the kingdoms of the world if He only bow down and worship him. Obviously the lord of the temporal realm, he lays rightful claim to the principalities which constitute it. The immediate and undeniable inference is that those who inhabit the thrones and halls of power have been bestowed with such passing and ephemeral glories by he whose it is to grant it to them on condition of their absolute fealty to no one less than he, the fallen angel of light, Lucifer, the prince of darkness. When one considers the infernal stench of the surpassing rank corruption which attends and indeed emanates from the princes of this world and the death and destruction which they unyieldingly sow at the behest of their master, it becomes evident that all those high grand councils of such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergs, The Council of Thirty, The Round Table and all their requisite foundations, think tanks, and institutes ad nauseam are but the infestations and habitations of demonic power lurking treacherously behind the trappings of governance as invested in the various congresses, parliaments, and tortuously complex and nightmarish bureaucratic institutions which by dint of law concoct ever new feral madnesses and devilish brews in their "murderous chalices".

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization Turns Hopey-Changey World Upside Down

As the nuclear powered aircraft carrier USS George Washington and its battle group surges across the Western Pacific and into the Yellow Sea for joint naval exercises with the South Korean Navy scheduled to commence Sunday and continue through next Wednesday, it appears that commander in chief whatever his name is will finally become the beneficiary of the expected and engineered international crisis which will restore his approval rating to levels befitting his exalted mission as world savior.

Coming on the heels of the significant national diversion of the frenzied American orgy of consumerism oddly denoted as Black Friday, the erupting conflagration on the Korean peninsula provoked and fueled by ongoing US naval exercises in the Yellow Sea for the past several weeks just so happens to follow the Illuminati G20 meeting in Seoul and a state visit by our Supreme Prestidigitator to India where two divisions comprising 36,000 troops are presently massing on the Chinese border in central and eastern Arunachal Pradesh.

It has been a matter of widespread and persistent speculation across the net and even in some mainstream media outlets just how far the US would descend into its unprecedented economic and societal malaise before the requisite international incident would be staged to distract the credulous and ever gullible American public from the dawning realization that the death knell was sounding not only for the once mighty dollar and their hopelessly moribund economy but also for themselves as well. Well it appears that the long awaited moment has finally arrived.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization Makes Its Move-Obama Dithers

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization has finally made its move, decoupling its two largest economies from domestic exchange in the world reserve currency US dollar. The death knell has finally and irrevocably sounded for the USD as the Federal Reserve proceeds at breakneck pace toward inevitable hyperinflation and the ultimate devaluation of the US currency. This watershed action taken in St. Petersburg between Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao promises to fuel creation of a de facto new world reserve currency the massive repercussions of which will be felt through the coming months throughout the world financial system.

The recent attack on North Korea by the South and the ensuing NK shelling of the Yeonpyeong border island in the Yellow Sea following months of US naval exercises and the launch of a Chinese ICBM some 30 miles off the western coast of the US portends escalating confrontations in the near future as the US economy continues to slide into Depression and a floundering administration, reeling from one of the most disastrous mid-term elections in US history and a stinging rebuke from the rising ASEAN nations at the recent G20 meeting in Seoul, seeks recourse in the patented last resort of US foreign and domestic policy failures- military adventurism. see also The Precipice and the Abyss on Kushmonster

We have noticed one little addendum here in our perusing of internet sources which we feel might be of some significance in the global shift towards the SCO. Pakistan has petitioned for full membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization as of 11/25/ 2010. With the present full scale US military and mercenary presence in Pakistan, we can only surmise that the battle lines are being drawn for a predicted and now imminent US/ China confrontation in the Chinese client state. India, the recent beneficiary of a state visit by the lame-duck American president, will undoubtedly be drawn into the currents of this perilous and destabilizing geopolitical brinksmanship . http://news.in.msn.com/international/article.aspx?cp-documentid=4626637

Depersonalization, Mass Indoctrination and the New American Pornocracy

With the latest grotesquerie involving the airport backscatter X-ray scanners hitting the airwaves and newswires across a nationwide background of ever smaller, constricted and surveilled interstices in the tortured and convoluted matrix of complex national security apparatuses, a nation once heralded for its magnificent untrammeled awe inspiring sea to shining sea landscape is rapidly constricting into an infernal network of screenings, roadblocks, checkpoints, and sundry bottlenecks through which the American human cargo is funneled like the docile, captive, and compliant cattle upon which they so voraciously feed. checkpoints, and sundry bottlenecks through which the American human cargo is funneled like the docile, captive and compliant cattle which they so voraciously feed upon.
One has to ask what further indignities and outright humiliations await this forlorn assemblage of lemmings on their way to what to all appearances suggests is a most uncertain future and which has come to uncomfortably mirror the fate of those highly prized and succulent beasts whom we have increasingly come to resemble. Could it possibly be suggested that the progressive and incremental institution of these choke points upon entry to any arena of mass activity is simply conditioning and prepping the American people for an inevitable submission to possibly more draconian and extreme measures at identification, sequestering, and ultimate confinement?

Such important speculations are of course all but lost in a titillating and unseemly display of prurience as to the images produced by the "naked body scanners" and the scandalous reports of gropings and molestations which comprise the TSA goon squads attempts to "pat down" those unwilling to subject themselves to the backscatter X-rays. In a society awash in pervasive pornography, inundated with subliminally sexually suggestive media and advertising and floundering in a farrago of uninhibited and perverted sexual mores, it should come as little or no surprise that the general and ongoing violation of individual rights should now assume such a critical, invasive assault on our very physical bodies.

Indeed the ignominious disgrace of being caught naked in public is psychologically not only

something that haunts the collective nightmares but also signifies the very real conditions of absolute bondage, slavery, and helplessness in a state of captivity. Remember that the consciousness of nakedness was the first of the many Edenic curses and was emblematic of the primal separation from God and the newly forged bondage to the serpent and the thralls and curses of Original Sin. One has only to recall the recent notorious pictures of the abused and tortured naked prisoners at Abu Grhaib prison (photo right) to witness an eerily similar parallel to the psychological high tech rape and emasculation now occurring at major US airports. Forced and public nakedness and the ultimate shame and vulnerability it signifies plays an integral part in any coercive action which seeks to intimidate exploit and otherwise break the human spirit.

This inglorious state of affairs is not without precedent in the highly charged atmosphere of sexual politics which has come to play an increasingly significant role in the political arena. Though the breaking of the so-called sexual taboos and the subsequent "liberation" of sexual repressions are hailed by many as a sign of an enlightened and politically progressive society, subsequent appeals to state and civil authority to adjudicate, codify and legislate all matters sexual have resulted in unwonted intrusions by the body politic into the private affairs of its citizens all in the name of equal protection under law.

Thus the present furor over the high tech porn images being printed gratis at the nation's airports in the name of the national security state is somewhat redolent of the campaign of abortion rights activists, calling to mind their oft repeated mantras of "our bodies, ourselves" and "keep your laws off my body". The two seemingly disparate issues are joined by the correspondence of the invasive, unwelcome, and intrusive intervention of government agencies into the seemingly inviolate realm of individual privacy. More importantly, aside from any political considerations, the individual has become increasingly subject to highly impersonal technological imperatives which seek to objectify and subsequently exploit personhood and its most intimate expression in sexuality in the name of a specious collective identity and its supposed greater good.

In a wider sense it could be stated that at the core of these issues concerning our personal sexual identity rests the crucial question of individual liberty and our corresponding collective responsibility. Indeed issues of sexual identity and practice have come to assume an unprecedented primacy in social and political affairs since the advent of Freudian psychology. The application of Freud's sex theory in particular by his nephew and the "father of public relations," Edward Bernays, was elemental in the transformation of American society into a proving ground for the sublimation and exploitations of subconscious libidinal sexual energy in service to everything from Madison Avenue ad campaigns to manufacturing consent for military adventurism and the clandestine activities of intelligence agencies. At the crux of this radical departure in modern social affairs is a revealing statement of Bernays in his book "Propaganda"

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.
Freud, Bernays, and the social engineers at the notorious Tavistock Institute where the Viennese psychiatrist's theories were amplified and expanded into a largely unknown and yet highly influential program for mass social conditioning, inherently mistrusted the innate capacities and capabilities of a humankind which they believed was subject to only blind and irrational forces of the unconscious largely beyond the scope of a limited comprehension. The harnessing, direction, and ultimate exploitation of these dangerous libidinal forces by the psychological methodologies of an elite class of scientific puppet masters became the template for social control. This unrelievedly grim and rigidly deterministic philosophy has come to dominate our societies, transforming them into the mechanistic and restrictive gulags of fear which admit of such monstrosities as the backscatter X-ray devices and the repressive monolithic police state which they are emblematic of.

Obama as Shiva the Destroyer

In the various successive attempts ever since his election to invest the latest POTUS with divine status, this latest hagiographic, hallucinatory incarnation of the anointed one perhaps stands out, especially in respect of the greatest US midterm electoral disaster in recent history as well as what has been regarded as a singularly calamitous foreign policy exercise at the largest and recently concluded G20 Illuminati convocation in Seoul, South Korea. The precarious balancing act depicted on the cover of our Orwellian Newspeak magazine implies that herculean task being apparently undertaken by our most august dimwit is perhaps an exercise which strains even the extraordinary transcendent capacities of the tacitly acknowledged god-man.

In actuality of course, this mind controlled, computer generated puppet show would be better served by a depiction of the many invisible strings connecting this lifeless marionette to the numerous puppet masters working the contrived motions of the theatrical events which comprise the stage management behind this increasingly absurd pretense of national governance. Also implied and subliminally suggested is the inevitable and looming downfall of this ersatz modern Promethean as he is either elevated to a new apotheosis via false flag event or simply conveniently and presently disposed of as the stalking horse he was from the very beginning. Either way, the madison avenue messiah is shortly to outlive his usefulness as his supporting cast one by one skulks off stage left like so many rats from the sinking ship, his masters slacken the mannequin strands and the hosannas of the mob turn to cries for blood.

Tactical Nukes Already Used World Wide

With the extradition of alleged world arms dealer and so called "Merchant of Death" Viktor Bout to the United States from Thailand after languishing at the high security "Bangkok Hotel" prison wherein he has been confined for more than two years, a recent interview with Bout's friend and former high level Russian nuclear intelligence officer Dimitri Khalezov, recently conducted by Daniel Estulin this October, raises new and disturbing questions not only about the desperate and finally successful attempts by the US government to extradite Bout but more importantly about the new era of tactical nuclear weapons attacks which Khalezov alleges brought down the World Trade Center towers and building #7, as well as being involved in numerous other massive bombings internationally such as
"the nuclear bombings of the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 on an anniversary of Hiroshima bombing, the 1996 Khobar Tower nuclear bombing, the 1995 Oklahoma nuclear bombing, the 2002 Bali nuclear bombing, the 1993 first nuclear bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, several recent nuclear bombings in Iraq, Pakistan, Algeria and Saudi Arabia that were reported to the gullible plebs as “car-bombings”, and also the El-Nogal nuclear bombing in Bogotá in 2003, as well as the previous nuclear bombing in Bogotá in November 1999"

Khalezov's assertion that a Soviet made Granit P-700 nuclear missile stolen from the ill-fated Kursk submarine was responsible for the attack on the Pentagon remains one of the most provocative and controversial yet highly plausible explanations for the bombing.

CIA Militia in the Heartland

The Secret Life Of Extreme Militias

TIME magazines latest cover story focusing on "The Secret Life of Extreme Militias" profiles the Ohio Defense Force and given the magazine's long standing reputation as the mouthpiece and sometimes bully pulpit of American establishment politics as well as its less admitted role as one of the mainstays of Orwellian thought control, it is instructive to peruse the contents of the Henry R. Luce Foundation's latest efforts to ensure homogeneity in the thinking of its extensive readership regarding the burgeoning militia movement in the United States.

The deceptively simple and tidy analysis which typifies TIME's attempt to pigeon hole complex issues, effectively dismissing them from any further more thorough and extensive journalistic endeavor, belies the psychological and behavioristic models which underlie a blatant form of newspeak propaganda which partakes more of the subliminal techniques of modern advertising than real journalism. With its stable of editors and reporters firmly entrenched and embedded in the government think tanks and military and intelligence agencies, one can discern an insidious and barely discernible attempt to shape and mold public opinion into such acceptable categories of opinion as resonate with the long established agendas of what some critics have termed its "media fascist empire".

On the surface, it would appear that the Luce Foundation associates the maneuverings and military exercises of the ODF with the recent activities of what they characterize as a deranged and dangerous assemblage of psychopaths, foremost of whom is one James Cummings, shot to death by his wife (?) in the little town of Belfast, Maine on December 9, 2008. Cummings apparently was engaged in the piecemeal assembly of a radioactive "dirty bomb" which he allegedly wanted to drive to Washington DC in the undercarriage of a motor home. Also profiled is octogenarian James Von Brunn who achieved notoriety in the June 2009 shooting of a security guard at the Holocaust Museum. As will be shown however, this convenient conflation serves only to cloak the hidden agenda of the political and paramilitary wings of black ops government intelligence agencies operating within the Ohio Defense Force and undoubtedly numerous other militia movements.

Along with a host of other "patriot", states rights, and militia luminaries who have momentarily grabbed headlines for their anti-government activities that it traces back several decades, TIME paints a lurid picture of various outrageous provocations enacted in the name of defending the constitutional rights of American citizens against the ever encroaching tyranny of the federal government. While generally avoiding the considerable and even lethal excesses of the ATF and FBI against various "patriot" groups, TIME focuses on the supposed "lone wolves" who seemingly spontaneously emerge from the wider context of the anti-government fringe with random acts of violence. This bizarre and growing retinue of Manchurian candidates and government provocateurs have served in the minds of many to brand legitimate dissent with the inevitable recrimination of "terrorism" effectively neutralizing political opposition. This "demonization"of a movement which has gained new found mainstream acceptance in the "Tea Party" and Libertarian campaigns of Congressman Ron Paul and Lyndon LaRouce, is widely challenged across a spectrum of anti-establishment forums, most notably but scarcely limited to Alex Jones Infowars and Prisonplanet media outlets.

Jones' vocal and untiring promotion of certain militia proponents such as Steve Quayle and the notorious Mark Koernke has undoubtedly provided millions with exposure to the so called "patriot" and militia movements and their apparent opposition to the "New World Order" enemy which Jones, as he never ceases to inform us, has gone to great and selfless lengths to expose, true Son of Liberty that he is. On the other hand Jones himself has come under increasing suspicion as a tool of controlled opposition and agent provocateur. Indeed both Jones and Quayle have amassed considerable fortunes with the vast commercialization and merchandising of the "patriot" counter culture. Needless to say, an essential component of the true patriot's stockpiles of ready provisions for the approaching NWO showdown is a vast array of weaponry as befits any red blooded American's rights and even duties under the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. Indeed if there is one issue which unites the disparate and contentious factions which form the volatile bubbling cauldron (formerly melting pot) of American social and cultural identity it is the unfettered access to the largest and most varied arsenal in world history.

The Ohio Defense Force Liberates The Roseville State Prison

Though the TIME magazine article depicts the Ohio Defense Force as an independent militia, the group is actually one of a number of State Defense Forces created by State Approved Charters across the nation. The ODF was founded by William B. Alexander, a former navy seal, along with two former Ohio SWAT team officers. They train by state approval on state land in uniform. According to Ohio State Law it is against the law for militias to do otherwise. For reasons to be discussed later, none of this was revealed in the TIME article. This past August the ODF engaged in mock operations at and around the abandoned Roseville State Prison near Zanesville.

Camouflaged and silent, the assault team inched toward a walled stone compound for more than five hours, belly-crawling the last 200 yards. The target was an old state prison in eastern Ohio, and every handpicked member of Red Team 2 knew what was at stake: The year is 2014, and a new breed of neo-Islamic terrorism is rampant in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio... The current White House Administration is pro-Muslim and has ordered a stand-down against Islamic groups. The mission: Destroy the terrorist command post — or die trying. The fighters must go in "sterile"—without name tags or other identifying insignia—as a deniable covert force. "Anyone who is caught or captured cannot expect extraction," the briefing officer said.

Though the exercises were grueling, exhausting and conducted with blank ammunition, the military character and training involved were quite real and apparently conducted according to strict military protocols. Although the TIME article suggests that this "moderate" militia was perhaps gearing up for a possible confrontation with the FBI or ATF, the real enemy potentially awaiting the ODF remains a subject of much speculation especially among members. It is interesting to note that the last mentioned protocols above are recognized signature practices of the 17th Special Operations Group, a delegation of which happened to be attending the ODF exercises under the command of Colonel Dick Wolf, a former Army drill sergeant, who in addition to taking a unit of the Group to join in armed patrols along the Mexican border, "travels around the country, to train groups in knife fighting and convoy operations" Knife fighting is also a signature specialty of the SOG.

The presence of the Special Operations Group seems to indicate at the very least a significant degree of government and professional military involvement in the activities of these "citizen soldiers", a strange conundrum for a militia possibly training for an armed confrontation with agencies of that same government. In fact the involvement of the 17th Special Operations Group reveals a covert liaison which the editors at TIME magazine may be only exposing under advisement of their intelligence agency imbed as a tacit acknowledgement of what is direct involvement of high level government intelligence agencies in the Ohio Defense Force. The Special Operations Group is actually an "element operating under the Special Activities Division (SAD), a division of the Central Intelligence Agency's National Clandestine Service "responsible for covert operations, black operations and other 'special activities'."(Wikipedia) There are two groups operating under the aegis of SAD, one for paramilitary operations and the other for political operations. One might assume that the ODF has a political action group attached to it as well.

Special Operations Group (SOG) is the element within SAD responsible for paramilitary operations. These operations include collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions, and all high threat military or intelligence operations with which the U.S. government does not wish to be overtly associated.[3] As such, members of the unit (called Paramilitary Operations Officers) normally do not carry any objects or clothing (e.g., military uniforms) that would associate them with the United States government.[4] If they are compromised during a mission, the government of the United States may deny all knowledge.[5] Wikipedia

It is noteworthy that SOG activities involve "the collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions and all high threat military or intelligence operations with which the US government does not wish to be overtly associated with". I guess we are now to assume that the US heartland now falls within the category of hostile territory and by inference that CIA trained and funded "patriot" militias, a.k.a. State Defense Forces, are now being deployed in advance of much anticipated massive civil unrest and social anarchy expected to follow the economic collapse and subsequent social disintegration of the United States. Thus any doubts of the members of the Ohio Defense Force as to the identity of the mysterious "enemy" for whom they are in combat training and whom they have alternately characterized as the ATF/FBI, private security contractors, UN forces or even Mexican national troops can be largely dispelled. To quote the legendary cartoonist and social critic Walt Kelly in the words of his beloved Pogo. "We have met the enemy and he is us"

Backlash Against Gays Roils Belgrade

The first gay rights parade since 2001 in Belgrade, Serbia led to the worst domestic violence in over a decade in the former Yugoslavian republic as the Balkans prepared for the impending visit of reputed lesbian and Wiccan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The coincidence nor timing of the two events was certainly not lost on either the participants in the confrontation nor the Serbian government which undoubtedly felt doubly compelled to limit the political damage and present itself to the EU as a model of tolerance. Nonetheless the clashes of heavily armed security forces with thousands of right wing Serbs, orthodox religious, and roving gangs of skinheads unleashed chaos in the streets of the Serbian capital which left the streets littered with overturned and burned automobiles and broken glass and lined with gutted businesses defaced with anti-EU graffiti. US Ambassador Mary Warlick attended and warmly endorsed the march which abruptly ended in face of the unrelenting opposition. Damages were estimated at more than one million Euros.

Once again the incredible divisiveness of the international gay agenda was on full display for all to see, openly abetted and encouraged by the US political establishment in the persons of Warlick and Clinton with the expected and resultant fractious discord exposing and exploiting the fissures of irreconcilable and colliding social strata. The resulting black eye for Republica Serbska was undoubtedly an intended result of the ongoing American geopolitical isolation of the Serbs still bristling from the dismemberment of their nation, the ceding of Kosovo and the devastating bombing at the hands of US/NATO led forces under General Wesley Clark in the early 90s Serbo-Croatian conflict during the regime of Mrs. Clinton's husband.

The events in the staunchly orthodox and adamantly anti-western Serbia were greeted with warnings from the European Union that such outrages would delay and possibly pre-empt any Serbian entry into the EU. They also signaled a growing backlash against the queer movement which up to this point has carried out its colorful and provocative displays of gay exhibitionism throughout the Western Hemispheric capitals. In the midst of the unrest generated by the economic crisis and growing social breakdown it can only be expected that such scapegoating of minority groups will increase exponentially as a renewed enthusiasm for chauvinist, nationalist and right wing agendas grows. The characteristic intoxication of paranoia which thrives in increasing social and economic upheavals unerringly seeks out those projected alien menaces which threaten to destroy the perceived social order. So far in the present crisis the US itself has remained immune from such pathological outbursts of irrational mob violence, but they are not long in coming, and not unlike the Belgrade queers, so many who presently command the streets under armed guard will likely soon be the unfortunate recipients of the anarchic and grotesque "justice" which dwells just on the other side of those same streets and the paramilitary police lines.

Al Qaeda Never Existed/Osama Bin Laden 9 Years Dead

It's been some time since I've seen this video, but I stumbled across it at Godlike Productions and just had to post it here as it goes farther than anything else I've seen to dispel the myth of "Al Qaeda"

As long as we're in a debunking mode here, I realized this post would be terribly incomplete without at least some reference to David Ray Griffin's excellent book "Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive" in which he conclusively proves that OBL (a.k.a. Tim Osman), died in the months following 9/11, and was miraculously resurrected by US intelligence agencies in the series of fabricated videos circulated since then. There is a thorough synopsis of the salient themes of Griffin's book at this link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1212851/Has-Osama-Bin-Laden-dead-seven-years--U-S-Britain-covering-continue-war-terror.html

The Wrath of Odd: Snyder vs. Phelps

The extremely bizarre and incongruous spectacle surrounding the ongoing political/media circus spawned by the Westboro Baptist Church's singular and unrelenting crusade against the iniquities of America has reached a crescendo of absurdity with arguments before the Supreme Court on the case of Snyder vs. Phelps. At issue is one of the more egregious of the Westboro Phelps family's signature antics of demonstrating at military funerals nationwide against the decadence and indecency of a nation which they perceive to be on greased rails to Gehenna due to its sinful ways. Originally directed against the pernicious influence on gays on our treasured moral values as a once God fearing nation, especially in the sacred ranks of the military, the scandalous and almost universally condemned spectacles staged by minister Fred Phelps and some 84 family members, who comprise the vast majority of the tiny Westboro congregation, have expanded to include obsequies marking the passing of any serviceman they can dredge up from a methodical scouring of military obituaries.

It was this ghoulish behavior which led them to position themselves a legally sanctioned (passed into Kansas State Law by Governor Kathleen Sibelius in 2007 and replicated in several states across the country) though scarcely respectful distance from a Catholic church in Westminister, Maryland one balmy spring day on March 10, 2006, as Marine Lance corporal Matthew Snyder was being laid to rest. Snyder had answered the call to duty shortly after September 11 only to fall victim to a Humvee accident in Iraq on March 3. As is usual with their increasingly familiar and garish pageants of shadenfreude, the Phelpses waved placards celebrating the deaths of US soldiers, the downfall of America and of course the execration of their erring and hell bound homosexual brethren.

The experience so traumatized Albert Snyder and his family that, with the help of the lawyer who had recently drawn up his will, and after witnessing his deceased son's graduation picture miraculously launch itself from its perch above the fireplace onto the floor, Snyder eventually sued Phelps and Westboro and won a spectacularly large judgment of $2 million along with $8 million in punitive damages. This victory was short lived however as the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision and in the end the grieving father had to pay some $16,510.80 in resulting court costs.

Of course, the one enduring and adamantine claim upon which the Phelps family dogma is founded is that God hates just about everyone, everywhere without reservation or discrimination and can hardly wait to punish the vast majority of the insensible and wicked brutes he has created with the everlasting and unquenchable flames of hell fire. This rather dire view of the human condition is relentlessly broadcast on their charming and thoroughly entertaining web site: http://www.godhatestheworld.com/. Needless to relate this tiny faction of backwoods wackos have ignited a serious firestorm of controversy which, with its loud din and hubbub, has drawn in media mavens and polticos right, left, and center across a wide political/media spectrum from the bloated Michael Moore to transsexual Ann Coulter and even George Bush 43 (who signed into law The Respect for Fallen Heroes Bill in 2007 in acknowledgement of the disruptive efforts of Phelps and his Westboro cadre), veritably uniting the hostile and warring political partisans of a deeply divided nation in common purpose.

Yet it might be suggested that the preternaturally sclerotic Mr. Phelps, who reserves special acerbic and obscene condemnation for his fellow Protestant Christian ministers and the Pope for condoning and even sanctioning homosexual and pedophiliac activity within their respective clergies (as in "Your Pastor Is A Whore"), embodies a high profile example of a shared collective mania which has gripped the national consciousness and which finds a particularly revealing focus in the strange nexus of Snyder vs. Phelps. In the larger context of the once unthinkable and widespread international conflicts in which the nation is embroiled, the side show spectacle of the Westboro provocations and their concommittant legal imbroglios seem insignificant. Simply put, Phelps personal abusive disrespect for the dead (and the living) pales in comparison with justifiable criticism of the significant and far more serious business of massive US genocidal wars in progress across the Middle East and South Central Asia, not to speak of the catastrophic economic conditions.

Yet, in germino, this tawdry and grotesque tabloid spectacle, is but only one of many of the pathological exhibitionisms emanating from what has become a distorted and highly dysfunctional American society in the terminal stages of complete societal breakdown. This particular misé en scene, however, exposes one of the major archetypal rifts which has haunted the nation down through the centuries from its inception. The source of this abnormality which has caused such a major national psychological dissociation is of course the deep strain of Puritanism á la Cotton Mather and Jonathan Edwards the nature of which was imaginatively expressed most admirably in Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter" and brought to the stage a century later in Arthur Miller's "The Crucible".

Anyone really interested in the diathesis of Mr. Phelps peculiar atavistic dementia would be well advised to undertake a study of Puritanism in America especially as creatively depicted by those artists so steeped in determinants of our historical and collective national mythos. Such deep and primeval soundings resonating from the past are emblematic of an unacknowledged and yet still living history which resides in our shared collective unconscious and occasionally manifests in the inchoate ravings of those amenable to these blind impulses such as Fred Phelps.

In a nation daily transfixed by the growing and irrefutable evidence of its own decline and fall, the numerous pathologies emerging and contending for a piece of the media spotlight trained on the anguished paroxysms of the national death throes, form a grotesque and absurdly theatrical social landscape which has transformed the once invincible triumphalism and exceptionalism of empire into chaotic farce. The spectacle of a nation once called "United" splintering and fracturing into factionalism, hybrid nationalism, and contention of mutually exclusive economic and political interests as the national wealth and substance is pillaged and pirated by Wall Street robber barons and their legislative enablers is made only more painfully obvious by the paltry nature of this internecine squabbling and bickering as the country slides mournfully into oblivion.

Nowhere is the nonsensical claptrap of this embarrassing display of buffoonery more evident than in the so called struggle for "gay rights". And this is precisely the arena in which religious demagogues like the Phelps find their firmest footholds thanks to the selective and focused agendas of corporate owned media in service to pan global enterprises. It goes without saying that it is the designed intention of the foundation funded think tanks and institutes such as Monroe and Tavistock whose occult blueprints for social engineering plan and effect the evisceration of national and social identities in the name of a bogus "equality" under law but only for certain classes and social groups which effectively promote their divisive and alienating agendas.

Mr. Phelps would undoubtedly not be surprised to find that the past two occupants of the Oval Office have been seriously compromised by alleged involvements in homosexual affairs. Barack Obama has been dogged by persistent and highly credible allegations raised by Larry Sinclair regarding sex and cocaine use with Sinclair. Tom Heneghan and Wayne Madsen have also exposed Obama and Rahm Emanuel as mutually frequenting the Mountain Man gay bath house in Chicago. Bush 43's drug use is common knowledge and he has been linked with male prostitute and White House "correspondent" Jeff Gannon. GHW Bush of course was implicated as having pedophiliac sex parties at the White House during the notorious Lincoln Savings and Loan scandal, allegations which made front page news at the Washington Post before being summarily quashed. Of course these closeted homosexuals and lesbians (Hillary Clinton) however highly placed are highly unstable personalities and most susceptible to black mail, extortion, and coercion which is most amenable to the purposes of their handlers and controllers as well as making them high risks to national security. Indeed the halls of power are redolent of pervasive promiscuity, perversion, and sexual vice as befits those whose public personas serve only to conceal the vile filth of sadistic and deviant sexual pursuits which seem to be the necessary concomitants of these slaves to absolute power, obsessive control, and above all the worship of the prince of this world.

Thus, perhaps much like the Romans of the decadence in the reign of Commodus, the hopelessly corrupt American power elite and their worshipful minions, having availed themselves of such an unrestrained foray into similar exploits of sexual depravity, indecency, and licentiousness, await a universal chastisement of biblical proportions similar to that visited upon Sodom and Gommorah. If so, Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church will have reserved VIP seats front and center at the apocalyptic cataclysm. Convinced as they are that they are numbered among the righteous elect they will await, no doubt, their eternal reward and vindication. And yet an unfamiliar pang of guilt might send a quiver of apprehension up their righteous spines when they hear the following:
"Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison and you did not care for me...Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me" Mt.25- 41-14, 45

Trade War Farce

If the current brouhaha over the 20%+ undervaluation of the Chinese Yuan (renminbi) versus the world reserve currency and the looming prospect of a "trade war" between the US and China sounds familiar, it is and nauseatingly so. On June 30, 2005 a proposal to impose a 27.5% tariff on all Chinese goods was voted on in the US Senate with a resulting tally in favor of the measure of 67-33. At this point secretary of the Treasury John Snow and the Federal Reserve Chief Alan Greespan "assured" senators of Chinese plans to revise exchange rates and by July 21, 2005 Snow welcomed a senate measure to derail the proposed legislation with the Chinese instead floating a demand from the US Congress to "revaluate immediately" the Yuan 10% or face "contrary legislation". The Chinese, with the able lobbying of Snow and Greenspan, outmaneuvered the congressional request by immediately embarking on a 2.1% revaluation followed by, well...nothing. The 2005 G-8 summit in Scotland produced only a deafening silence on the issue solidifying the Chinese position and when the IMF, responding to a US appeal to the WTO for arbitration, ruled that the Renminbi was not undervalued, the whole issue was quite unceremoniously mothballed. The sovereign interests of the US Congress through the agency of its own Treasury secretary and the head of the Federal Reserve had been effectively overruled by the WTO, the IMF and not lastly the Chinese themselves. This was largely due to an agreement by the US Treasury to enter into consultation with the IMF as stipulated by OTCA 188 to determine whether foreign currency manipulation was taking place and if so what effective actions to take regarding Balance of Payments and unfair trade advantages due to an undervalued currency.

The empty posturing of the US Congress and its ultimate capitulation to the Treasury, The Federal Reserve, the IMF, the WTO, and finally the Chinese government left little to the imagination as to who was really in charge of the ballooning US trade and budget deficits and balance of payments. And five years later we find the same stage management and actors on the same set, Lindsey Graham and Charles Schumer engaging in the same stale and tired posturing. Little mentioned is the obvious fact that any devaluation of the Yuan/Renminbi runs headlong into economic complexities which disallow any so simple a solution as a mere currency revaluation. First of all, as one commentator recently averred, "the Chinese own the United States" and there will most likely be no appreciable revaluation of the Chinese currency due as well to the endemic Chinese propensity for resisting foreign pressure and influence in its domestic affairs, especially when it holds all the trump cards, mostly in the way of $2.27 T in foreign reserves , a majority of which are in the form of US Treasuries. Secondly as spoken of above, according to 1979 IMF article IV, the IMF itself is the enforcer on any issue of exchange rates through the mechanism of its SDR (Special Drawing Rights). Any IMF country is bound to seek IMF approval if the country in question desires to change par value compared to the US$ with the establishment of SDR "freely" determined exchange rates.

Of course the now rapidly deflating US housing bubble could not have been effected without the intervention by Mr. Greenspan and the Federal Reserve in the way of the now infamous Greenspan Put and aggressive loose monetary policies accomplished by the Maestro during his tenure at the Federal Reserve but most dramatically from the dawning of the new millennium onwards with the critical participation of the Chinese and their massive purchase of US Treasury bonds and the "vast recycling of insupportable US deficits by China and other creditor nations" In effect Greenspan exported US inflationary policies into the international markets and in the process fueled globalization and helped create the new economic engine in China and SouthEast Asia. Without the acquisition by China of US$ through US securities, higher interest rates would be inevitable and with that the end of the Greeenspan housing bubble. It has been suggested that Greenspan and Federal Reserve's interest rate manipulation concommittant with massive injections of liquidity have radically disrupted the natural K-Wave cycles, artificially extending the summer cycle with drastic and dire consequences for the US and World economies which are now plunging headlong into a grotesquely exaggerated and horrendously distorted K-Wave winter cycle. See Prophets, Profits and Loss on Kushmonster.

In the present US/Sino totentanz, which seems to be entering into a fast paced crescendo begging for an ultimate denouément, the Chinese have once again parlayed their previous 2+% "revaluation" and once again have promised further and significant revaluations in the future. They, along with the Japanese, have pared their purchases of US Treasuries, requiring further vast monetization of the US debt by the Federal Reserve and a host of back door and shadowy buyers. Schemer and Graham's Punch and Judy show going on in Washington regarding Yuan revaluation is, as in 2005, just so much window dressing designed to impress a credulous American populace that there really is somebody at the wheel and rudder of the ship of state in control of economic policy. In reality the US government long ago ceded any authority or responsibility for credible economic policy to an international economic order predicated on the exportation of american industry and intellectual property, the subsequent decimation of its productive employment base, the devaluation and elimination of its world reserve currency in service to impossible and unsustainable levels of debt, and the employment of its endemic chauvinistic military adventurism as a mercenary police force in service to international drug cartels and global corporate interests. Trade war? The bad actors in Washington could only hope for such a sanguine outcome to what can only properly be described as an already accomplished national capitulation.
