cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Ka-CHING: UK signs up for 90 million doses of vaccine

Ministers have signed agreements to secure up to 90 million doses of swine flu vaccine despite the fact that a pandemic has not yet been declared, it was announced today.

The deals with pharmaceutical companies GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Baxter will secure “early supplies” of a vaccine for the newly identified H1N1 strain.

Enough “pre-pandemic” vaccine has been ordered to protect at least half of the population by December, at an estimated cost of £100 million.

This is in addition to the purchase of 500 million doses of anti-viral drugs that have already been stockpiled to help treat illness and deals to procure vaccine in the event of a pandemic.

Reasons Elite Use Bioterrorism

Government, the mainstream media, and the drug companies are trying hard to keep it secret that Baxter was caught very recently shipping weaponized avian flu while they hype the scare of the latest swine flu outbreak. They’ve done this many other times.


The ruling elite have a lot of power and wealth. Their primary goal is to protect their wealth and power. Bioterrorism helps them achieve this goal with three prime objectives.

First, there is the profit objective. Bioterrorism helps the ruling elite profit by owning shares of corporations which develop and manufacture vaccines and drugs such as Tamiflu. This increases this wealth through insider trading and allows them to buy more power.

Second, there is the depopulation objective. Depopulation helps make resources more available. With more resources available, there is less competition and strife in society. A large, hungry mob is a danger to the ruling elite. A smaller mob is easier to be kept happy and to control. There is also less traffic and more nature for the elite to enjoy with less people.

Third, there is the martial law objective. Bioterrorism creates a lot fear and allows government to implement martial law. With martial law the ruling elite have stronger police powers to keep their wealth and power secure.

Flu virus was not lab creation, WHO says

And WHO are we to argue? I mean, wow was that fast or what? All things should be resolved so quickly. I mean, this claim came up and in like ONE DAY they looked into it, very seriously I'm sure, and swatted it down like a fly. Nope nope nope nope nothing to see. Nada zilch zero. Phew! That was easy. Hey I bet they have one of those Staples Easy Buttons too. - Ed.

Geneva, May 14 (DPA) There is no evidence to support a theory that the new influenza A(H1N1) virus was created in a laboratory, a World Health Organisation official said Thursday.
Scientists associated with the WHO had taken the theory seriously, said Keiji Fukuda, the organisation’s head of health security, and looked into the claim.

“This group of scientist believes that this hypothesis does not stand up to scrutiny,” Fukuda told reporters in Geneva, saying it was most likely a “naturally occurring virus”.

An Australian scientist, Adrian Gibbs, had submitted a paper to the WHO Saturday in which he had put forth his theory.

Fukuda said the incident was a “good example” of cross-border cooperation and scientists taking advantage of the way modern technology allows them to share information, unlike at any other time in history.

Also, the official said there were so far no signs that the virus, also known as swine flu, was showing resistance to anti-viral drugs.

Fukuda said the WHO would like to see anti-virals made available “as broadly and widely as possible”, and the organisation was working with poorer nations to achieve this. It has already distributed some 2.4 million doses to the world’s least developed countries and Mexico.

Scientist arrested for smuggling vials used in Ebola research into US

So, did the NIH ask him to steal and smuggle the vials? - Ed.

OTTAWA (AFP) — A Canadian scientist has been arrested for smuggling 22 vials stolen from Canada's National Microbiology Lab, used in Ebola and HIV research, into the United States, Canadian and US officials said Wednesday.

Konan Michel Yao, 42, "was taken into custody" while crossing the border from Manitoba province into the western US state of North Dakota on May 5, said a spokeswoman for the Public Health Agency of Canada, which operates the lab.

According to US prosecutor Lynn Jordheim, Yao was detained for carrying unidentified biological materials in vials wrapped in aluminium foil inside a glove and packaged in a plastic bag, along with electrical wires, in the trunk of his car.

Yao said in an affidavit he stole the vials, described as research vectors, from the Winnipeg lab on his last day of work there on January 21.

He told US border guards he was taking them to his new job with the National Institutes of Health at the Biodefense Research Laboratory in Bethesda, Maryland.

What happened? It was all about Israel. This document should leave you with no doubt whatsoever that Jewish Groups planned this war and carried it out by closely aligning themselves with the President of the Current Empire, the United States. But the question that begs to be asked is how many Jews died in this war? I do believe that Patrick Buchanan was absolutely correct when he said:

"The civilized world must win this fight,' the editors thunder. But, if it comes to war, it will not be the 'civilized world' humping up that bloody road to Baghdad; it will be American kids with names like:

The Soviet Art of Brain Washing

From May 2, 1936, to October 10, 1939, I was a dues-paying member of the Communist Party, operating under my own name, Kenneth Goff, and also the alias John Keats. In 1939, I voluntarily appeared before the Un-American Activities Committee in Washington, D.C., which was chairmanned at that time by Martin Dies, and my testimony can be found in Volume 9 of that year's Congressional Report.

During the period that I was a member of the Communist Party, I attended their school which was located at 113 E. Wells St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and operated under the name Eugene Debs Labor School. Here we were trained in all phases of warfare, both psychological and physical, for the destruction of the Capitalistic society and Christian civilization. In one portion of our studies we went thoroughly into the matter of psychopolitics. This was the art of capturing the minds of a nation through brainwashing and fake mental health -- the subjecting of whole nations of people to the rule of the Kremlin by capturing their minds. We were taught that the degradation of the populace is less inhuman than their destruction by bombs, for to an animal lives only once, any life is sweeter than death. The end of a war is the control of a conquered people. If a people can be conquered in the absence of war, the end of war will have been achieved without the destructions of war.

During the past few years, I have noted with horror the increase of psychopolitical warfare upon the American public. First, in the brainwashing of our boys in Korea, and then in the well financed drive of mental health propaganda by left-wing pressure groups, wherein many of our states have passed Bills which can well be used by the enemies of America to subject to torture and imprisonment, those who preach the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and who oppose the menace of Communism. A clear example of this can be seen in the Lucille Miller case. In this warfare the Communists have definitely stated: "You must recruit every agency of the nation marked for slaughter into a foaming hatred of religious healing."

Umm...I wonder if Les Vis is experiencing this phenomenon described here, via Urban Survival:

What interests me are the people who are hearing the Voice. It begins as a susurration, like falling rain although with a rhythm, as if wave fronts of rain were rushing back and forth across a tin roof.

This is a common description, though others as often describe the Voice as beginning like the soft rumblings of distant thunder, waxing and waning rhythmically on the edge of perception. There exist no other descriptions of the start of the Voice.

What can we say about these people? They are exceedingly average in life. Men and women, adults of all ages and walks of life. After interviews and a sifting of their lives, my colleagues and I have determined only one unifying factor: Not a single person who hears the Voice has a diet that includes the flesh of animals. There is one other thing unique to these people and this is the most enthralling; they are no longer with us...

WASHINGTON, May 13 (Reuters) - Fewer than a third of U.S. adults would get a shot especially made to protect against the new H1N1 swine flu virus, according to a poll released on Thursday.

Most are simply not that worried about the new flu, which has spread around the globe, killed more than 60 people and brought the world to the brink of a pandemic, the poll of 1,442 adults found.

Only 36 percent said they got a vaccine against seasonal influenza this year, although virtually the whole population, especially everyone over 50, children, pregnant women and people with chronic conditions, are advised to get the immunization every year.

Do not go quietly

This entire hysterical Flu flap is almost certainly mind fuckery. The filthy, vermin, child murdering scum that run the world are using this outbreak, due to a virus that they cooked up in one of their secret demonic witch's labs somewhere, to scare the cattle and slip in lots of talk about a one world reaction to combat this new bubonic plague, and of course vaccines for all, containing god only knows what. A side benefit of this circus is of course that few people are now talking about the disastrous world economy anymore, nor about the sinister international bankers and financiers who are still fucking their various taxpayers up the ass.

The reaction of the disgusting and complicit - child murder enabling - controlled media is key to this flu crisis. The concerted way in which they all pounced on this non story, and proceeded to over state the dangers and ramp up the emotion of the many braindead automatons who still read their various steaming piles of literary excreta, is a sure sign to those of us who actually take an interest in the world (most people, quite frankly, don't) that this is yet another of their massive attacks on us, another 911, another silent weapon in a quiet war.

Avigdor Lieberman meets with David Miliband but it's a big secret what they discussed

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's first official visit to London was shrouded in secrecy. There was no press conference for British journalists, only a closed briefing for Israeli correspondents and the visit received no coverage at all in the British media on Wednesday.

In his first high level meeting as foreign minister, Lieberman met with his counterpart, David Miliband, at the Foreign Office in Whitehall on Wednesday morning.

The two discussed how Britain and Israel could continue to work together on a range of issues, particularly in the Middle East.

They expressed deep concern with Iran's nuclear ambitions and destabilizing actions in the region and had detailed discussions about the Middle East peace process and the current situation in Gaza.

Iran's nuclear ambitions: a baseline assessment

A new report from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee discusses what is known about Iran’s potential for developing nuclear weapons, as well as what is suspected or imagined.

“There is no sign that Iran’s leaders have ordered up a bomb,” the report notes. “But unclassified interviews… make clear that Iran has moved closer to completing the three components for a nuclear weapon–fissile material, warhead design and delivery system,” the report stated. Resolving suspicions about the potential military aspects of Iran’s nuclear program “will be one of the most difficult [issues] confronting negotiators for the two countries and the international community,” wrote Committee chairman Sen. John Kerry in his transmittal letter.

Burn after reading: intel dump muddies dirty war water

Throughout the long history of the Afghan War, the United States has never accused the Taliban of using white phosphorus weapons -- until now. Suddenly, after the emergence of glaring evidence of Afghan civilians being seared and maimed by these chemical weapons following American airstrikes and combat operations, the Pentagon has released "classified information" claiming that the Taliban have actually been using white phosphorus weapons for six years, since 2003: a practice that the Pentagon -- which has been using white phosphorus weapons in Afghanistan since 2002 if not before -- denounced as "reprehensible."

This is very curious. The bipartistan managers of the Terror War have always been eager to trumpet -- even exaggerate -- the atrocities committed by the various armed groups opposing the imposition of foreign troops in Afghanistan. But now we are to believe that the Pentagon has been keeping evidence of the Taliban's chemical weapons use -- chem weapons! WMDs! -- under wraps for years.

Leo Zagami: Illuminati Whistleblower, Norway, February 2008

Leo Lyon Zagami, ex-member of the Comitato Esecutivo Massonico - the Masonic Executive Committee - of Monte Carlo, was, until recently, a high level member of the Italian Illuminati. He is a 33rd degree Freemason, and a senior member of the infamous P2 Lodge. He was the 'Prince': prepared to take over after the older Illuminati 'King', Licio Gelli. He was born of a Scottish-Sicilian Illuminati aristocratic bloodline, and so has been involved in the Illuminati Order since childhood. Disgusted with satanic black magic rituals, and with the true intentions of those who regard themselves as the elite controllers of the planet, he has now made the commitment to tell the real story of those who seek to rule us all without our consent. Quick, intelligent, likable, passionate, and with a huge amount of information at his fingertips about the inside workings of the Powers that Be, Leo welcomed us into his house in Oslo, Norway, where he had been living in what might be called exile. In our two and a half hour interview we were barely able to scratch the surface of everything he knows, and what we present is a summary for those unfamiliar with the labyrinthine details of one of the most important stories of our time. Be warned: some of the material is shocking. Leo seems to have paid a price for talking to us on camera. Days after our interview, his wife Fatma Süslü, of Turkish descent but an aspiring Norwegian politician, left him - accusing us at Project Camelot, in the process, of being agents.

Between 1917 and 1928 a puzzling illness swept around the world. Young people, especially women, seemed to be the most vulnerable, although it affected thousands of people of all ages.

Doctors named it encephalitis lethargica, which simply means 'inflammation of the brain that makes you tired'.

Although an epidemic of encephalitis lethargica hasn't recurred, occasional cases are still seen. Some experts suggest it may be more common than we realise, but that many minor cases go undiagnosed.

Adrian Gibbs, 75, who collaborated on research that led to the development of Roche Holding AG’s Tamiflu drug, said in an interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers use to make vaccines. Gibbs said he came to his conclusion as part of an effort to trace the virus’s origins by analyzing its genetic blueprint.

Both the “mark to market” valuations for businesses set by FAS157 and the same effectivley for banks through Basel 11 which built on the original Basel accord, have set in place mechanisms which are prone to, and I believe designed to, the cascading effect. Looking at the effects of this or that regulation is a bit like trying to piece together what happened after a nuclear explosion by focusing on the cascading atomic reaction rather than on who designed and built this bloody bomb and who triggered it.

Swine Flu hits China

Mainland China has confirmed its first case of the new H1N1 flu strain and quarantined 130 passengers who had travelled with the man who tested positive.

The patient, surnamed Bao, is a 30-year-old student and is in a stable condition, China's centre for disease control said on Monday.

He is being treated at a specialist hospital in Chengdu, the capital of China's southwestern Sichuan province, after testing positive for Type A H1N1 influenza.

US *Sends* Swine Flu samples to Russia

MOSCOW, May 8 (RIA Novosti) - Samples of the A/H1N1 swine flu virus have been delivered from the United States to Russia where scientists will conduct tests and develop a vaccine.

"Yes, the strain sample was sent yesterday from Atlanta...The plane must have arrived," a source in a medical institute involved in the research said.

A spokesman for the Epidemiology Central Research Institute said on Thursday that Russian scientists had developed tests to detect the A/H1N1 virus.

The head of Russia's Flu Research Institute, Oleg Kiselyov, said last week the scientists could create a vaccine to combat swine flu in three months.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday that there had been 2,371 confirmed A/H1N1 cases in 24 countries, with a death toll of 44.

In Mexico, the number of swine flu cases has been put at 1,112, with 42 dead. Two people have died in the United States, where officials confirmed 952 cases.

No swine flu cases have been reported in Russia.

"While substantial uncertainty remains, clinical severity [of the current swine flu] appears less than that seen in 1918 but comparable with that seen in 1957."

A study published today in the journal Science concludes:

While substantial uncertainty remains, clinical severity [of the current swine flu] appears less than that seen in 1918 but comparable with that seen in 1957.

The 1957 flu killed about 2 million people, which is between four and eight times more deadly than a typical seasonal flu epidemic which cause between 250,000 to 500,000 deaths each year, according to the World Health Organization.

The 1918 flu killed between 50 to 100 million people.

Given that the current H1N1 strain has not killed many people to date, I am guessing that the Science projections are assuming a more lethal mutation later this year.

The danger of drugs...and data


This time Elsevier Australia went the whole hog, giving Merck an entire publication which resembled an academic journal, although in fact it only contained reprinted articles, or summaries, of other articles. In issue 2, for example, nine of the 29 articles concerned Vioxx, and a dozen of the remainder were about another Merck drug, Fosamax. All of these articles presented positive conclusions. Some were bizarre: such as a review article containing just two references.

In a statement to The Scientist magazine, Elsevier at first said the company "does not today consider a compilation of reprinted articles a 'journal'". I would like to expand on this ­statement: It was a collection of academic journal articles, published by the academic journal publisher Elsevier, in an academic ­journal-shaped package. Perhaps if it wasn't an academic journal they could have made this clearer in the title which, I should have mentioned, was named: The Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine.

During the Great Depression, a time when all sorts of half-baked "experts" arose armed with panaceas, the idea reached its apotheosis in the form of Technocracy, a movement founded by Howard Scott, which championed a dictatorship of scientists and engineers.

A few months ago I shared with you my analysis about the present political situation in an article headlined “The Icarus Sect“. In this article I named the interests who for decades have been robbing our planet and are willing to sacrifice the health and the lives of billions of people in the interest of the chemical/pharmaceutical and oil Cartel.

The name “Icarus“ is taken from a figure in Greek mythology: The arrogant Icarus – armed with artificial wings made out of wax – tried to fly higher and higher. He succeeded until he got too close to the sun and its heat melted the wax of his fake wings. Inevitably, he fell from the sky to his death.

Precisely this is the fate of today’s “Icarus Sect”, those interest groups who have been ruthlessly seeking to monopolize health, food and energy supplies for the people of our planet. In order to continue their unscrupulous investment business, they were willing to bring wars, epidemics, hunger and economic crisis to our planet.

The “Icarus Sect” is doomed because – driven by their insatiable greed – they were flying too close to the sun. Now the sun – the truth – is brightly shining on the fake wings of the “Icarus Sect” (i.e. the multi-trillion dollar oil and drug business) and exposing them as fakes. The tyranny of oil and the dependency of mankind on the false promises of the drug industry is ending – and with it the century-long terror regime of the “Icarus Sect.”

This article reveals the plans of the “Icarus Sect” for 2009 – particularly as they relate to its plan to turn Europe into a corporate dictatorship under the stranglehold of the chemical/drug and oil Cartel. In short, the “Brussels EU” is being strategically developed as the “politburo” of the “Icarus Sect” and as a bridgehead for the global expansion plans of the Cartel.

Before we expose the plans of the “Icarus Sect” for 2009 it is necessary to have a look back at the origin of this Sect and its current political players. Following is a short summary of the facts covered in my previous article (in German):

Global Crisis: How much time do we have?


In our communiqué No. 52 of October 3, 2008 dealing with the Global Financial “crisis” that had then just broken out, we said that there was no such “crisis”. Rather, what began Monday, September 15, 2008 was the beginning of a terminal and irreversible collapse of the global financial system, which is part of a controlled Model through which other objetives will be achieved. Those objective go far beyond merely financial goals: rather, they seek to advance towards the next geopolitical stage in the “New World Order” (NWO). And this is nothing more and nothing less than the enthronement of a WORLD GOVERNMENT. At that time, we also described the NWO Elite’s three basic “Plans”, i.e.,:

- Plan “A” seeks to resolve the on-going financial “crisis” through merely financial measures. It’s not working….
- Plan “B” will seek to resolve the “crisis” by a comprehensive overhaul of the global financial system, which among other factors will include introducing a New Dollar, backed by “foolproof” gold bullion. This will allow the global elites to transfer the bulk of Wall Street and European bankers’ losses to other geographies (amongst them, China, which is one of the focus of present crisis, as well as Latin America), and
- Plan “C” that will seek to “kick the chessboard”, so to speak, triggering a planetary war.
We believe that these three “Plans” are presently in different stages of implementation: Plan “A” is almost dead. Plans “B” and “C” are about to be activated. Let’s see where we stand at present….

US aid to Israel to continue despite financial crisis

Important information about your tax dollars at work that you can only get, apparently, from Al Manar TV. o_O - Ed.

10/05/2009 Despite the deep financial crisis in the United States, Washington has no plans to halt its foreign aid. The American administration recently asked the Congress to approve the full security aid to Israel, which stands at $2.775 billion, as part of the 2010 budget plan.

Outgoing Israeli Ambassador to Washington Salai Meridor expressed his appreciation Saturday night following the US administration's decision to include the full security aid in the budget plan.

"This move is an implementation of part of the memorandum of understanding for 10 years, which was signed between the two countries, and an expression of the ongoing American commitment to Israel's security and to guaranteeing its exceptional advantage," he said.

Crop Circle Analysis by halfpasthuman

The crop circle (glyph) which appeared in Clatford on May 9th has been provided a label of 'sigil' in an article at EarthFiles.Com.

Personally, I doubt that this latest crop glyph is a sigil as it is not asymetric, as are all, meaningful, sigils. As is explained in the annotated diagrams of the crop circle(glyph) below, this latest orb-created glyph is bi-laterally symetrical, as no sigil *can* be an still retain value as a code. Also let us note now that sigils are an attempt to disquise information through coding, not communicate it. does not make sense to me that these orb-dudes would go to all the trouble to create these glyphs only to then use forms that 'obscure' information, as do conclusion therefore is that this glyph is NOT a sigil, and, assuming that it is intended to create effective communications, a different interpretation *could* be extracted.

First, a diagram of the glyph in question:

King Abdullah of Jordan's ultimatum: peace now or it's war next year

America is putting the final touches to a hugely ambitious peace plan for the Middle East, aimed at ending more than 60 years of conflict between Israel and the Arabs, according to Jordan’s King Abdullah, who is helping to bring the parties together.

The Obama Administration is pushing for a comprehensive peace agreement that would include settling Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians and its territorial disputes with Syria and Lebanon, King Abdullah II told The Times. Failure to reach agreement at this critical juncture would draw the world into a new Middle East war next year. “If we delay our peace negotiations, then there is going to be another conflict between Arabs or Muslims and Israel in the next 12-18 months,” the King said.

Report: Turkey to break with NATO on Iran

Jerusalem — A report issued by the Washington Institute says Turkey has moved steadily away from its NATO allies and toward Iran, Russia and Syria.

The report, titled “The AKP’s Foreign Policy: The Misnomer of Neo-Ottomanism” and authored by senior researcher Soner Cagaptay, says Turkey’s new foreign policy — led by the ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP according to its Turkish initials — has come at the expense of Ankara’s relations with Israel, the European Union and the United States.

“Ankara will likely opt out of a NATO consensus on Iran, clash with the United States on how to handle Hamas and Hezbollah, and disagree with the EU and the U.S. on Russia,” the report said.

"...banks should remain in private hands."

On Feb. 23, 2009 the Treasury, FDIC, OCC, OTS, and the Federal Reserve made a joint statement concluding with the following paragraph.

"Currently, the major U.S. banking institutions have capital in excess of the amounts required to be considered well capitalized. This program is designed to ensure that these major banking institutions have sufficient capital to perform their critical role in our financial system on an ongoing basis and can support economic recovery, even under an economic environment that is more challenging than is currently anticipated. The customers and the providers of capital and funding can be assured that as a result of this program participating banks will be able to move forward to provide the credit necessary for the stabilization and recovery of the U.S. economy. Because our economy functions better when financial institutions are well managed in the private sector, the strong presumption of the Capital Assistance Program is that banks should remain in private hands."

The April 26 NY Times article entitled Geithner, Member and Overseer of Finance Club should be read carefully because it gives a strong indication of the meaning of "private hands."
