Debate and Argument

Recently I’ve been away. 

I drove to deep Northern New England right after posting the last entry over at, hitting the northernmost Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in my town for a extra large hot, and then the Mobil station across the street at the Interstate cloverleaf to top off the other tank, and then hopping into the lines of fleets of utility trucks



so I could draft in the convoy on the way to Dover-Foxcroft, gateway to the deep Northern woods,





where I could use my Nightcore TM15

to spot the abominable snowman’s crystal skull

before they got the lights turned back on


While I was away, an anonymous individual using a server in Manchester, England used my contact box at “occurrences” to send me a collection of all things Khalezov.  

Here it is, in the interest of sharing:


A new book on 9/11 is out


The author knew the Mossad agent who organised the events of that day.

Dimitri Khalezov has spent 10 years researching and writing this book.

Download links:

Or read at:

In a 2010 interview, Khalezov explained that you can’t build a skyscraper in NYC without an approved demolition plan. On 9/11, the World Trade Center’s demolition plan was put into action to demolish the complex.

Khalezov learned of this demolition plan from his job in the Soviet Union. He had worked in the nuclear intelligence unit and under an agreement between the Soviet Union and the USA, each country was obliged to inform the other of peaceful uses of nuclear explosions.

The WTC was built with 3 thermo-nuclear charges in its foundations.

Note: underground nuclear explosions do not produce mushroom clouds.

This is only ever seen when the explosion takes place above ground. On 9/11, the explosions were deep underground.

More info:

You can watch the 2010 interview at:

Video # 4 – WTC’s demolition plan

Video # 14 – WTC 7 (which fell ½ hour AFTER the BBC announced its collapse).

Videos # 24/25 – chronic radiation sickness of WTC responders (their cancers are not due to asbestos poisoning)

Khalezov was interviewed on 4 Sept 2013:


Here is a more recent article mentioning Khalezov:

I know it is preposterous to claim that the WTC was brought down by nukes. But if you look up the meaning of ‘Ground Zero’ in the old dictionaries you have at home, you’ll find that there would only be one definition. It is what you call a place that has been nuked.

After 9/11, the US government sent people round to every bookshop and public library on the planet to replace ALL the dictionaries. The replacements differed only in the meaning of ‘ground zero’. They show extra definitions for that term, to obfuscate the original single meaning.

For example, if you have a genuine old Merriam-Webster dictionary, you would see this:

ground zero n (1946) : the point directly above, below, or at which a nuclear explosion occurs.

The replacement books (even of old editions) show two extra

definitions and this is what you’ll see:

ground zero n (1946) 1 : the point directly above, below, or at which a nuclear explosion occurs. 2: the center or origin of rapid, intense, or violent activity or change 3: the very beginning : SQUARE ONE

Have a look at this video:

At 6:05 mins, he shows the old and new definitions of ‘Ground Zero’.”


Now, before we go any further, let me state the following:

I’m not generally in the habit and don’t want to start a habit in which I post everything that comes in from anonymous sources. While I appreciate the value for anonymity in forwarding communications of a very interesting sort, anonymity has been over-used, abused and mis-used, notably by governmental and media sources.

We’re at a time and place where it is necessary for all good men

to come out of hiding and stand up and speak their piece

with integrity.

Second, I believe 9/11 is a topic of utmost importance. There is a comment that precedes a very well-known piece on the Internet about litmus tests that sums the issue up nicely. 

Third, I doubt anyone other than someone who just now stumbled across this blog for the first time isn’t already very well-versed in the topics and sub-topics of 9/11, from LIHOP to MIHOP, from plane or no plane or cartoon plane, and now from nukes or no nukes.

And anyone who is at all conversant in the topics of 9/11 can also speak to the massive disinformation game that has run rampant since before 9/11 and which parallels or mimics the same game(s) used around the topics of Dealey Plaza. 

So the question must be asked of this and everything else about 9/11:

Is this valid and accurate, or is it purposeful disinformation — and, if so, where is it coming from and why?

Anyone can and should immediately use their onboard search engine (including the one between their ears) to find out more about this fellow from Russia.  Why is Russia  interested? Don’t they have state surveillance and propaganda there too? 

And Veteran’s Today…  a valid outlet? 

Are the contributors there valid? Many disparage Gordon Duff. Some question Jim Fetzer.  I read them and post them.  Then I watch for  reactions, ripples, and more. [By the way, I am currently reading Operation Kronstadt by Harry Ferguson, Hutchinson, 2008.] 


and this link provided in the comments: whose author may be the anonymous fellow from Manchester. 

WikiSpooks has this entry: Who is WikiSpooks? 

The biblioteca-playades entry is noted above…. but it cites Rayelan Allen of RumorMillNews … whose bona fides have been questioned. 

But we also have this:

The Dimitri Khalezov “WTC was nuked” hoax 

and this:

Re-exploding the WTC Nuclear Demolition Myth – The Mysterious Dimitri Khalezov [there’s a link to Part Two as well inside that link].


So we are left with the following things:

  1. dueling theories extending back years;
  2. the need on a personal basis to do a helluva lot of reading and listening and further research to decide the outcome in our own individual minds… but for what purpose?

I’m an agnostic on a lot of the sub-theories like nukes or not, planes or not, MIHOP versus LIHOP. Oh, I’m not without a POV, but I’m not convinced there is a valid purpose in my sharing them here, now, ever, or at all. 

I’m a Salandrian. See his “False Mystery” speech.

“… I chose to assess how an innocent civilian- controlled U.S. government would have reacted to those data. I also envisioned how a guilty U.S national security state which may have gained control of and may have become semi-autonomous to the civilian U.S. governmental structure would have reacted to the data of the assassination. The use of this simple method of analysis applied to the assassination data and the reactions to those data by our national security state and its civilian allies thoroughly convinced me that my model of explanation was correct. No other interpretation adequately explained how our government, our media and our establishment reacted to the facts relevant to President Kennedy’s killing…..” 

In 1975 Salandria told Gaeton Fonzi: “I’m afraid we were misled. All the critics, myself included, were misled very early. I see that now. We spent too much time and effort microanalyzing the details of the assassination when all the time it was obvious, it was blatantly obvious that it was a conspiracy. Don’t you think that the men who killed Kennedy had the means to do it in the most sophisticated and subtle way? They chose not to. Instead, they picked the shooting gallery that was Dealey Plaza and did it in the most barbarous and openly arrogant manner. The cover story was transparent and designed not to hold, to fall apart at the slightest scrutiny. The forces that killed Kennedy wanted the message clear: ‘We are in control and no one – not the President, nor Congress, nor any elected official – no one can do anything about it.’ It was a message to the people that their Government was powerless.” 

Draw the parallels to 9/11. They picked the media gallery of a global broadcast.

Does it really matter whether they let it happen or made it happen? 

No. The argument has been made successfully that one is a slippery slope to the other and means little in terms of minimizing death or damage, or in terms of prosecuting the crime, preserving the evidence, etc.  

Does it really matter whether there was a plane or not?

No; three towers fell with large loss of life.

What matters is the aftermath… the way in which the event was used to further foster wars, cement the control of the military-industrial-intelligence, radically reduce our rights, and undermine or destroy the Constitution. 

There is no need for debate or argument other than deciding what you are going to do now. 

Scoped, Amused, and Interrogated

I had a very interesting weekend.  Battling a minor-league cold, I did my duty and undertook a slightly-delayed commitment for a second  screening colonoscopy, complete with two bottles of mag citrate, a squirt of IV propofol, and some color glossies after I woke up. (I passed the test, and a few other things too.]

After surveying the world via Internet Saturday evening and finding a few notable items (now old news noted over at ), I dropped down out of the loft office to the living room level and the TV where I stumbled across some historical offering on the World channel, that PBS/Ford Foundation/Aspen/globalist offering in disguise, and a show that spoke of the French and Indian War, the Abenaki Indians, Odanak [ ] and the search-and-destroy operation against it by Robert Rogers  and his rangers [].

Rogers’ Rangers was initially a provincial company from the colony of New Hampshire, attached to the British Army during the Seven Years War (called the French and Indian War in the United States). The unit was quickly adopted into the British army as an independent ranger company. It was trained by Major Robert Rogers as a rapidly deployable light infantry force tasked mainly with reconnaissance as well as conducting special operations against distant targets….”

[’_Rangers ]

“In 1759, the tide of the war turned and the British advanced on the city of Quebec. Major General Jeffrey Amherst, the newly appointed Commander-in-Chief of British forces in North America, had a brilliant and definitive idea: He dispatched Rogers and his rangers on an expedition far behind enemy lines to the west against the Abenakis at Saint-Francis in Quebec, a staging base for native raids into New England. Rogers led a force of two-hundred rangers from Crown Point, New York, deep into French territory to Saint-Francis.

At this time, the natives near Saint-Francis had given up their aboriginal way of life and were living in a town next to a French mission. Rogers burned the town and claimed to have killed 200-the actual number was 30 killed and 5 captured…. The destruction of Saint-Francis by Rogers was a major psychological victory: The colonists no longer felt that they were helpless. The residents of Saint-Francis — a combined group of Abenakis and others — understood that they were no longer beyond reach. Abenaki raids along the frontier did not cease, but significantly diminished.”


“Rogers evidenced an unusual talent for commanding his unit in conditions that the regular armies of the day were unaccustomed to working in. He took the initiative in mustering, equipping and commanding ranger units. He wrote an early guide for commanding such units as Robert Rogers’ 28 “Rules of Ranging”. The Queen’s York Rangers of the Canadian Army, the U.S. Army Rangers and the 1st Battalion 119th Field Artillery all claim Rogers as their founder, and “Rogers’ Standing Orders” are still quoted on the first page of the U.S. Army’s Ranger handbook.”

Then I changed channels as the snow fell and found one carrying IndiePlex movies where I watched Denys Arcand’s French-Canadian award-winning film “The Barbarian Invasions”, complete with some anti-American cynicism, some intellectualism of a socialist nature, mixed with a little ribaldry, some human warmth, amidst the tale of a man dying of terminal liver cancer.   Denys Arcand is generally accepted as Quebec’s best film-maker and the film won more than one award. See the appropriate links below. What struck me were the quotes that, interestingly enough, were also selected at IMDB. 

 Remy: Contrary to belief, the 20th century wasn’t that bloody. It’s agreed that wars caused 100 million deaths. Add 10 million for the Russian gulags. The Chinese camps, we’ll never know, but say 20 million. So 130, 145 million dead. Not all that impressive. In the 16th century, the Spanish and Portuguese managed, without gas chambers or bombs, to slaughter 150 million Indians in Latin America. With axes! That’s a lot of work, sister. Even if they had church support, it was an achievement. So much so that the Dutch, English, French, and later Americans followed their lead and butchered another 50 million. 200 million dead in all! The greatest massacre in history took place right here. And not the tiniest holocaust museum. The history of mankind is a history of horrors.


Rémy: We’ve been everything: separatists, supporters of independantists, sovereignists, sovereignity-associanists…

Pierre: At first, we were existentialists.

Dominique: We read Sartre and Camus.

Claude: Then Fanon, we became anti-colonialists.

Rémy: We read Marcuse and became Marxists.

Pierre: Marxist-Leninists.

Alessandro: Trotskyists.

Diane: Maoists.

Rémy: After Solzhenitsyn we changed, we became structuralists.

Pierre: Situationists.

Dominique: Feminists.

Claude: Deconstructionists.

Pierre: Is there an -ism we haven’t worshipped?

Claude: Cretinism.


The film is available online at YouTube. 



The Barbarian Invasions | Reviews | Film…/0,4267,1151606,00.html‎

Feb 20, 2004 – This grotesquely overpraised movie from Denys Arcand, now an Oscar nominee for best foreign film, is a jaded sequel to The Decline of the American Empire…

The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions Barbares) | Film | The …

The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions Barbares) … a bleak, funny film about death, decay and change… [with] an intelligent interest in ideas rare in the cinema …


The movie won the 2004 Caesar Award (French equivalent of Oscar) for Best Picture, and the Best Screenplay and Best Actress (Marie-Josée Croze) award at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. At first glance, an Oscar winner for Best Foreign picture about an middle-aged man dying of cancer might lead you to expect a deeply sensitive tale about family relations, raw emotions and loads of melodrama.  

The Barbarian Invasions (Les Invasions Barbares) is not that movie, not quite. The movie is rather a celebration of life, cherishing fond memories, rekindling relationships and not losing yourself in the face of an imminent and impending death. (Read Review)


After the film, I went to bed. It was snowing heavily outside. I expected to have to get up relatively early to brush off and carve out the car from its assigned parking space.

Indeed, five hours later, the plows woke me up, along with the voices of the men shoveling the sidewalks. I live in a condo complex, collective living in miniature. I threw on some sweat clothes, slapped on the new LL Bean snow sneakers, grabbed the stiff-bristle broom from the garage, and ventured out into the cold, white, encrusted world. After about ten swipes with the broom on the back of the SUV, I thought that the work might be more difficult than I had expected and that perhaps I should re-assess my approach when, ping OUCH, my internal pacemaker fired.  [It’d just been replaced last fall. it’s like a Tesla motor-car; when the battery dies, the whole thing gets replaced. In this case, the whole thing brings an entire new software package with it, and the second lead into the ventricle finally got placed with accuracy and effectiveness. I now have dual-chamber pacing; in my age and condition it’s like having a four-barrel carburetor and an 8-track stereo.]

So, when the device fires, it’s a notification of sorts. It’s supposed to fire when certain deadly arrhythmias show up and shock me back to a normal rhythm. As such, it mandates immediate follow-up at an emergency level. But I was fine… a little tired and dizzy perhaps, which was the primary clue that the device had mis-read, again, as it did before it was replaced, the existence of a rapid atrial beat like atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, itself a noteworthily-dangerous rhythm requiring attention, but not life-threatening. Long-term atrial fibrillation can lead to a stroke and, having already had one of those and recovered from it, don’t want or need another, thanks very much. So I followed the directives of wife and doctors and she dialed 911 and I sat down to wait. In came my old friends from the local fire department and ambulance service who refused to let me walk to the ambulance and we went through a long protocol of service that delivered me safely and soundly to the emergency department where both my wife and I used to work. [I was an orderly, charged with departmental maintenance and some occasional muscular assistance with patients; she was the head nurse.] There, I went through another series of protocols which resulted, in the end, in me waiting for the representative of the company that designed and manufactured the pacemaker-defibrillator to work his way down through the list of waiting emergency calls (I was at the bottom, being stable and ambulatory) and bring his magic machine to “interrogate my device”.

Now interrogation in this day and age sounds like torture, with hot lights, maybe some harsh words, a black-jack to the ribs, and maybe some water-boarding.  But actually it was very quick and easy, due to the sophistication of the equipment. He opened a small suitcase not much larger than a thick lap-top computer, pulled out a stainless steel hockey-puck-sized disc attached to the machine through a bundle of cables, and placed it on my chest. He keyed-in two commands and downloaded the complete and total memory (with analysis) of the event and my heart’s status (before, during and after the event), and printed it out into a report of bundled EKG strips that ran about 15-20 pages. He took the report, riffed its pages, turned it in his hands, and leaned over my bed to show the emergency physician and my wife, explaining it as well to me, with the class of a very friendly and warm individual who was without question an expert in cardiology and electrophysiology. The device interpreted the atrial rhythm, some of which trickled down through my old existent left bundle branch block pattern into the ventricle, as a dangerous rhythm and — zap!. The aberrant atrial rhythm was gone and the dual-chamber pacing resumed. He sent a copy of my own electrophysiologist today who will probably tell me to increase my dose of sotalol.

I returned home fast enough to catch the last five plays of the Patriots-Dolphins game, finish my Xmas catalog browsing for ordering on Monday morning, and my wife took over the TV to find a movie.

She found one: It was called “The Barbarian Invasions”. 



The Soviet Union’s $1 Billion ‘Psychotronic’ Arms Race with the U.S.

December 16th, 2013

Via: Medium:

During the Cold War, the US and the Soviet Union battled on many fronts to demonstrate their superior technical and scientific achievements. Some of these battles are well known and well documented, such as the race to put a human in space and then on the Moon.

Others are much less well known. One of these battlefronts was in unconventional research—parapsychology (or psychotronics as the Soviets called it), mind control and remote influence and the such like. Some of the US work on these topics is now public and has famously become the basis for various books, TV documentaries and for the Hollywood film “The Men Who Stare at Goats”.

But much less is known about the Soviet equivalents. Today that changes thanks to the work of Serge Kernbach at the Research Center of Advanced Robotics and Environmental Science in Stuttgart, Germany. Kernbach provides an overview of Soviet efforts in unconventional research between 1917 and 2003 based on publications in Russian technical journals and recently declassified documents.

He shows how Soviet research evolved more or less independently of work in the western world but focused on many of the same unconventional themes as secret US programs. And he shows how the Soviets and the Americans used what little they knew of each other’s work to create a self-sustaining cycle of funding. This psychotronic arms race cost as much as $1 billion and only ended in the early 21st century when the funding bubble burst.

Over the years, the Soviets focused on a number of areas, many of which mirrored US efforts. For example, the US Project MKULTRA, was a 20-year CIA program that studied ways of manipulating people’s minds and altering their brain function.

The Soviets had a similar program. This included experiments in parapsychology, which the Soviets called psychotronics. The work built on a long-standing idea in Soviet science that the human brain could receive and transmit a certain kind of high frequency electromagnetic radiation and that this could influence other objects too.

Various researchers reported that this “human energy” could change the magnetisation of hydrogen nuclei and stimulate the immune systems of wheat, vine and even humans. They even developed a device called a “cerpan” that could generate and store this energy.

Like MKULTRA, this program also included a study of the effects of electromagnetic waves on humans and led to the development psychotronic weapons, which were intended to alter people’s minds.

Kernbach also describes significant Soviet research on non-local signal transmission based on the Aharonov-Bohm effect. This occurs when a charged particle is influenced by an electromagnetic field, even when it is confined to a region where the field strength is zero.

Soviet scientists appear to have called this effect “spin-torsion” and built a number of devices to exploit it. But just how successful this was isn’t clear and this line of work appears to have been killed off in 2003.

One thing that Kernbach’s analysis lacks is any detailed discussion of the results of these programs. Consequently, it’s hard to escape the sense that this research is steeped in jargon and pseudoscience

All this research required substantial investment, says Kernbach. Numbers are difficult to come by but he concludes that Soviet spending on unconventional research must have reached the equivalent of hundreds of millions of dollars and may have hit $1 billion.

It certainly matched US spending and on projects such as MKULTRA this was in the hundreds of millions. “Soviet and US costs are comparable at least on a level of separate programs,” he says.

Although Kernbach says much of this research was discontinued in 2003, it is not clear whether Russia (or the US) has ongoing programs in these areas. However, Kernbach says there are as many as 500 researchers in Russia that are still active in the field of psychotronics (as measured by the numbers still attending conferences on this topic).

What’s also clear is that a significant amount unconventional research is still classified in Russia. “For instance, documents on experiments performed in OGPU and NKVD—even 80 years after—still remain classified,” says Kernbach (OGPU was the secret police force of the Soviet Union between 1922 and 1934. It evolved into the NKVD, which included the organisation that later became the KGB.)

“I once put it rather pungently, and I was flattered that the British Foreign Secretary repeated this, as follows: … namely, in early times, it was easier to to control a million people, literally it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today, it is infinitely easier to to kill a million people than to control a million people. It is easier to kill than to control….”

Tamerlan Tsarnaev Heard Voices in His Head

December 16th, 2013

Via: Yahoo:

Suspected Boston marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was tormented by voices in his head, according to the Boston Globe, which published the results of a five-month investigation into the attack on Sunday.

“He believed in majestic mind control, which is a way of breaking down a person and creating an alternative personality with which they must coexist,” Donald Larking, a 67-year-old who attended a Boston mosque with Tamerlan, told the Globe. “You can give a signal, a phrase or a gesture, and bring out the alternate personality and make them do things. Tamerlan thought someone might have done that to him.”

The Ultimate Conspiracy Theory Propaganda  (4:43) 


There is a deplorable lack of understanding about how modern conspiracies work. At least since the JFK assassination, all big American conspiracies have been constructed with multiple patsies built in. This is to provide the conspirators options on who to blame (including possible future blackmail and control), and a protection for the conspiracy (the JFK assassination cover-up was encouraged by the threat of blaming the assassination on the patsy of the Soviet Union, setting up WWIII).”

Report: FBI Disrupted 150 Shootings through Interventions

Monday, 16 Dec 2013 06:37 AM

The FBI has helped to disrupt or prevent nearly 150 shootings and violent attacks this year, in part by steering potential gunmen toward mental health professionals.

There have been hundreds of these disruptions since 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder told an audience of police chiefs in October, touting the behind-the-scenes work of a small FBI unit based out of Quantico, Va. In most cases, the FBI has helped potential offenders get access to mental health care.

US Supported Death Squads Massacre Syrian Civilians

The Roach Motel at the End of the Universe (12:35) 

Dirty Laundry

Recently I sat and watched the ending of the movie “Zero Dark 30”  (available anytime on demand on Starz, as all good myth-based propaganda should be). 

I’d tuned in so I wouldn’t miss a moment of The Magdalene Sisters.  

While I was waiting for the Obama tale to endI thought about a simple survey I’d like to take of a well-selected group of the 30 or so people I thought I knew most closely in high school.

The survey would involve one question–albeit in 3 parts–and would be undertaken during my upcoming 50th high school reunion. It would ask the question:

“At the time of high school graduation, on your 42nd birthday, and 6 months ago: What was your worldview? How has it changed? What changed it?

Vaguely familiar with the story of the second film, and personally familiar with corporal punishment, abusive psychology and more, the obvious parallel between the governing structures and their ideologies obvious in that film and those of the rural world of 2013 are not clear enough to most of the people. But it is difficult to perceive all the nuances when you lack direct experience within that culture.

The IMDB entry for the film:

The Magdalene Sisters: Evidence, Testimony . . . Action?

by James Smith

[Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society 2007, vol. 32, no. 2]  

Some are called from time to time to bear witness;  my time came  when I realized the movie was on in a few minutes, acknowledged to myself that I’d never seen it, and understood implicitly that I was obligated to watch it, to bring my empathy to bear through cathartic extension and my own experience (to be sure a mere shadow of the sisters’ but distantly relative, in miniature, in solitude rather than group).

Some are called to witness; a few (a number always much bigger than it appears) must bear the burden, the pain, the scars, the damage to life and spirit and flesh; a few (a number always much higher than it appears) must bear the guilt, though few of them ever own their own role in these kinds of events due to their own psychopathology, the protective envelope of their own assuredness in their obedience to some form of behavioral code, or lesion in their brain, or an anomaly in their social DNA, or simply a hole in their heart, or a jagged crack in their humanity.

Some are always available to — but never called to — the slightest bit of awareness or concern about the hidden myriad of victims of this particular type of socio-psychological disease, the physical, mental and sometimes sexual abuse of another human being. Sometimes victims are codependent in some way, a state which makes them prey or at least vulnerable to exploitation, more likely simply unable to be responsible enough to stand up to or escape from the situation. Children, of course, are especially vulnerable and unable because they are not yet fully formed and developed sentient bipeds, often because they have been limited in some way in that development by the very adults charged with bringing them from tender vulnerability to thoughtful self responsibility. Such an advance renders them no longer available to being exploited; it does not necessarily bind or heal the wounds, nor render the prior victim invulnerable to the assaults of others.  This is true of small boys and girls, and teenagers, and whole nations wandered into bonded indenture by wealthy and powerful feudal lords of church and state, even when that state is but a small chunk of property. Boundaries are invisible. The very acts of abuse are damaging to the developing triune brain and its ability to integrate into wholeness.

But some of the crabs leap for the edge of the bucket.

Occasionally one of them is able to scramble out and even fall into the water, scurrying for the safety of the murky bottom, sometimes missing part of a claw, or with damaged antennae, or forever restrained by something that formed within them during that period of extreme stress.

Sometimes the victims become perpetrators. Sometimes they become messengers, or agents, or advertisements for the act of traumatic abuse, for the possibility of the psychological ownership of another.

Sometimes they become caricatures of people, harlequins of what they might’ve been.

Many people remain oblivious to the existence of this underside of life, blissfully unaware or quickly but firmly in complete denial that men and women are capable of being so beastly to other humans.

The Magdalene sisters is a film, a story, a bit of history. But today’s headlines — if one pays attention —  scream of the ongoing and ingrained ways in which we continue to destroying our society and our culture  one act at a time.

Though not of an Irish nor Catholic upbringing (these things are not restricted, but cross all boundaries), I’ve had my own version of scenes involving dirty laundry {“hanging out sheets in the dirty breeze in my little town”}, corporal punishment, forced labor for extended periods (the work having to be done always front and center, groundskeeping and household maintenance, laborare est orare), and torture and self degradation to the point and purpose of shaming. Abu Ghraib had its roots deep in history, and was not an anomaly.

My siblings were co-participant as a victim (though we were almost always segregated) and occasional perp (though this must be recognized for what it was,  a form of adolescent Stockholm syndrome that lessened their own victimhood).  They had their own hell; we were not allowed to know what the other endured. I doubt they know what I endured.

Escape was out of the question, save through endurance, prior (in my case, meditation), hardening of a useful sort through education, and eventually emancipation through graduation, attainment of legal maturity, and departure to college.  Like some of the sisters and the laundry, I rebelled, reacted, tried to run away (a lifelong periodically-appearing behavior, 1st at age 5 with a little red wagon and a suitcase, then in a fast black used car [ ]  stuffed with laptop, music CDs, books on psychology, and clothing),  and sought relationships with people to whom I was attracted [ ]  because —  I now understand —  they too were victims.

The attractants  were behavioral patterns born of similar abuse of history; they too sought something. Each of us not recognizing at first our own inability to enmesh because of patterns of psychological, spiritual and social damage and scarring, each “leaning forward for love”. In one case, I simply found the way back to an abusive and grossly dysfunctional setting in my attempt to provide sanctuary for another. My second attempt to provide sanctuary was so vivid and severe as to be laughable, clinical, critical, desperate, and finally, instructive and healing. (The broken-down fast car, and the broken-down driver, then towed a UHaul trailer back up the hill.)

But even the people closest in social proximity are ignorant, oblivious, uncaring and they wonder why I fret and anguish when I see all of this playing out in their larger autocratic political and social world.

When I attempt to warn them, they think I must be crazy.

When they cannot or refuse to see, I think they are uncaring

(or perhaps complicit).

“The commission will be able to advise the Holy Father about the protection of children and pastoral care of victims of abuse,” the archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean Patrick O’Malley, told reporters in Vatican City.

The precise mission and make-up of the committee were not made clear, nor how it would respond to one of the most common criticisms of the church: that bishops who shielded pedophile priests have not been held to account.

The left half of my duplex was rented out to a ex-military or incarceration-style security consultant, and the unit on the right side was just bought by an employee of a company that installs high-end surveillance, security, CCTV and alarm systems and whose vehicles sport decals from law enforcement-linked motorcycle clubs.

What better evidence that we are regarded as fools to be toyed with at will by the collectivist Tavistockian circle jerkers than the fact that the two films designated to get us into the holiday spending and film experience were “Frozen” [ “Anna’s quest to find her sister Elsa the Snow Queen and save their kingdom from an eternal winter”] and “Catching Fire”, featuring “a symbol of revolution against the oppressive Capitol government ruling the fictional world” in her “a laser-cut patent leather dress”.

How better to quench our revolutionary ardor than by transference?

“The ending of the film has the Catching Fire logo shift into the Mockingjay one to tease the future of the films.”

Who brings us these kinds of things?

Disney (but of course)(rumored to be deeply involved in MK-Ultra style mind control) and Lionsgate (see as well as and, where it’s noted they also produce “the search for the hottest girl in America”. {Google and oogle on YouTube} And the NSA follows every click.


Was it at The Sullen Bell [ ] or was it somewhere else at which I noted the numerous articles citing the parallels between the assassination of JFK and 9/11?

Well, whatever… Here’s another one — a particularly good one, at that — , written by Robert Bonomo whose work “Your Love Complete” was noted recently by Kenny at the sideshow [ ] and is available for download at the link below:


JFK and 9/11: The Common Threads

[tip of the cap to Cryptome]

The most disturbing common thread in the aftermath of these two crimes was the reticence to thoroughly and openly investigate them.  Both crimes were ‘solved’ within hours, the basic outline of events decided on in days and etched in stone, never to be disturbed. Even to  mention a doubt as to the perpetrators was to question the very essence of the nation because it seemed clear that to disbelieve the guilt of Oswald or Bin Laden had one very dangerous consequence- the implosion of the modern myth upholding the entire state apparatus. It’s hard not to make the comparison with a family ravaged by an abusive father, avoiding the obvious in a desperate attempt to maintain its existence as a unit.


[If you need further expression of that analogy of a dysfunctional family structure headed by an abusive parent, I recommend that you read “A Language Older Than Words”.  It’s published by Chelsea Green, is available for sale at a number of locations — the author himself offers an autographed copy — and there’s a free copy in a pdf format. I think the author ought to be paid for slicing open his vein and letting it bleed onto the page.]


Seen recently:

In an 1843 letter to E. Bruce Stevens, Pater Knox described the origin of Beta Theta Pi: “It was during the winter season, 1838-39, that the idea of forming a secret association first suggested itself. I saw that there were many advantages in such an association, which could not otherwise be enjoyed… The history of many of these secret associations had always possessed a charm for me… There was an interest about the actions of men who bound themselves together by vows which were never broken, and who pursued the great objects of their association…” Yet, even Knox admits, “in some of these societies… were to be found many objectionable features which rendered them liable to be used as engines of evil as well as instruments of good.

Feds looking for contractor to spy on all social media

CBC, CA – Tweets, public Facebook posts and YouTube videos could soon be subject to round-the-clock scrutiny by the federal government, a procurement document posted this week by Public Works and Government Services Canada suggests.

The federal government is seeking a firm that “continuously monitors social media content on a daily basis in near real time and (can) provide web-based, online media metrics and reporting capabilities.”

That includes combing through “blogs, micro-blogs, social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter, forums and message boards, traditional news websites and comment sections, media sharing websites (videos, photos and user-generated content websites including YouTube).”

The contractor is also being asked to keep tabs on English- and French-language internet news sites and blogs.

The document specifies that the contractor must be able to provide the service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

A Review of the “Mental Illness” Definition Might Prevent Crime

Posted by samzenpus on Sunday December 01, 2013 @01:45PM

from the getting-it-right dept.

An anonymous reader writes

“Following a BBC report showing abnormal variation in the number of people taken into police custody with mental health problems, concerns have been raised about the legal definition of “mental illness”. Prof. Steve Fuller argues that a much sharper legal distinction is required to ensure criminals with mental disorders are not released without appropriate treatment. Fuller distinguishes between two cases: a ‘client’, who pays a therapist and enjoys a liberal, level-playing field in face-to-face interactions, and a ‘patient’ who is being treated by a doctor for a particular disorder. If the former relationship cannot be established due to person’s mental state, then the latter one should be enforced. Thus, Fuller calls for ‘a return to institutions analogous to the asylums of the early 19th century.'”

Film School Isn’t What It Used to Be, One Father Discovers

July 13, 2003|David Weddle

“Neoformalism posits that viewers are active–that they perform operations. Contrary to psychoanalytic criticism, I assume that film viewing is composed mostly of nonconscious, preconscious, and conscious activities. Indeed, we may define the viewer as a hypothetical entity who responds actively to cues within the film on the basis of automatic perceptual processes and on the basis of experience. Since historical contexts make the protocols of these responses inter-subjective, we may analyze films without resorting to subjectivity . . . According to Bordwell, ‘The organism constructs a perceptual judgment on the basis of nonconscious inferences.’ ”

Then came the question itself:

“What kind of pressure would Metz’s description of ‘the imaginary signifier’ or Baudry’s account of the subject in the apparatus put on the ontology and epistemology of film implicit in the above two statements?”

I looked up at my daughter. She smiled triumphantly. “Welcome to film theory,” she chirped.

Alexis then plopped down two thick study guides. One was for the theory class, the other for her course in advanced film analysis. “Tell me where I went wrong,” she said.

The prose was denser than a Kevlar flak jacket, full of such words as “diegetic,” “heterogeneity,” “narratology,” “narrativity,” “symptomology,” “scopophilia,” “signifier,” “syntagmatic,” “synecdoche,” “temporality.” I picked out two of them–“fabula” and “syuzhet“–and asked Alexis if she knew what they meant. “They’re the Russian Formalist terms for ‘story’ and ‘plot,’ ” she replied.

“Well then, why don’t they use ‘story’ and ‘plot?’ ”

“We’re not allowed to. If we do, they take points off our paper. We have to use ‘fabula’ and ‘syuzhet.’ “” 

“… Modern semiotic theory is also sometimes allied with a Marxist approach which stresses the role of ideology.” 

Semiotics and Marxist Criticisms

Semiotics can be defined as the study of signs or symbols and of their implementation—whether in the specific context of an artifact, or more generally in a cultural context. The relation of Semiotics to Marxist criticisms can be quite interesting; analyzing the use of signs and structures of relations between signs within a culture to reinforce an ideology (or perhaps to raise of a reader’s consciousness of such an ideology) can reveal a number of aspects about that culture or ideology that would otherwise remain hidden. From such a marriage—method to sociopolitics—arise many of the later 20th century Marxist-influenced theories.

Much more here: 


“… The most effective kind of propaganda is intellectual montage; one that develops the emotions and thought processes towards the Marxist world-view, using the juxtaposition of images to create a “synthesis of art and science.”

The Soviet Marxist film theoreticians as well as the film structuralists essentially set out to make film theory scientific, more methodical and measured and quantifiable; less like an art form that rests on aesthetics or technology or value statements. We already know the “codes” of film and speak them fluently—with several dialects, as of MTV, documentary, TV news, TV commercials, silent film, Chinese film, b&w film, genre films and so forth—so these issues don’t seem terribly significant. Film theoreticians build on ideas of preceding theoreticians and important thinkers in related fields. Earlier thinkers and artists are referred to, either as points or departure, or to strengthen or explain their argument. The major concern of semiotics, however, is not what film says, but how it says it; that is, what system of codes and conventions make shared meaning possible.”
