Egypt: Another taste of things to come

There are many facets to what has been happening in Egypt, and it seems to me that it's another phase in the contrived collapse of civilization being disguised as numerous other things. Only LaRouche, as far as I know, is pointing the finger at the desperation being caused by the British oligarchy's "economic recovery," and it appears to me that the British are pointing their fingers at Mubarak to distract attention from their responsibility. I suspect that the conflict is being stage-managed, and that chaos is the goal.

Webster Tarpley claims that the hard-core of the demonstrators are being run by the CIA, which is an extension of the British empire. He also claims that the intent is to replace Mubarak in order to get a more compliant regime. But my question is whether Mubarak is part of the scheme, and is just putting on a show of resistance in order to contribute to the chaos. If the plan is for Egypt to become more strident against Iran, as part of the next phase in the "Apocalypse," then perhaps Mubarak will leave after enough chaos has taken place.

Wikileaks supposedly has documents which prove that the US government has been planning this for three years. But Wikileaks has been so discredited in my mind that I consider them to be just a "rogue" division of the mainstream media, and for all I know is working with people inside the government who created those documents in order to be "leaked." The effect again is to distract attention from the British hand.

Why the Bedini Clarifier improves the sound of CDs, SACDs, etc.

It turns out, as I suspected, that the error correction systems in digital disc players don't produce error-free results, as indicated in the following excerpt:
But hang on a minute, the Music Server still gets the data from CDs?

You may be asking if CD players have trouble extracting the data on the CD then doesn't the same issue exist for the music server. The answer is that the methodology for putting the data onto the music server hard disk is quite a different process to that used when a CD is playing music. For obvious reasons when you play a CD in your hifi then the CD is read once only in real time, any errors have to be dealt with on the fly there and then. On the other hand when you rip a CD into the Music Server then you use a computer. Computers are designed to read and process data. Thus the CD reader can read the disk multiple times to try and extract the data rather than relying on one read and then error correction. Furthermore there are some sophisticated programs to read CDs ( such as Exact Audio Copy ) that correct for misalignment of the laser and use checksums to ensure a perfect bit copy. All of this means that the digital tracks on the hard drive are the best possible source possible. Remember for the best music production the source must be of the highest quality.

By using a Bedini Clarifier, which evidently neutralizes static charges on the bottom of the disc, the raw (uncorrected) error rate is reduced, and this reduces the (partially) corrected error rate, thus improving the sound. Mystery solved.

Another bogus excuse for dismissing DSD and SACDs (Rev B)

Rev B (see notes)

"Tape is now the holy grail for musicians," he says, welcomed by both industry veterans who miss the format's sine-wave [analog] warmth and by indie twentysomethings who are experiencing full bandwidth after a lifetime of listening to highly compressed MP3s.
A vintage multitrack deck like a Studer A827 costs $7,000 or more, and and additional $10,000 to refurbish, but Spitz says demand continues to increase. The cost of the media is also rising -- a reel of 2-inch tape today costs $250 to $300, more than double the cost a decade ago. That reflects the scarcity of the necessary raw materials like base film and oxide, says Don Morris, director of sales for RMG Intl., the Dutch company that took over the assets of BASF's liquidated EMTEC tape manufacturing business. "But musicians are willing to pay that now, because they know how much better it sounds," he says.
Analog's attraction lies in its ultra-high resolution capability, Spitz explains. Direct Stream Digital (DSD), the high-resolution digital disc format Sony used for its audiophile SACD format, is capable of 2.884,000 transitions per track per second, but a high-quality mastering tape contains approximately 80 million transitions per track second. "And that's just for 1/4-inch two-track tape running at 15 IPS," says Spitz. "The resolution goes up substantially with wider tracks and higher (tape) speeds."

"Transitions per track per second?" What ever happened to frequency response, noise, dynamic range, wow, flutter, distortion, generational loss, irretrievable loss with age, etc.? By any real measure, including listening, DSD and DXD are superior to analog tape. So, there's some other reason or reasons for the preference for analog masters. I think it's partly because artists are leery of digital recordings, partly perhaps because they like the effect of tape distortions, and partly because having an analog master ensures that they'll have the best copy as long as it's in good condition.


Rev B - Removed all comments regarding consumer formats vis a vis pirating, and comments regarding media attempts to create a "retro" atmosphere, upon realizing that many albums are released on both CD and LP. (So, LP releases, which typically cost more that CDs, are apparently purely to satisfy consumer demand for pure analog sources.) Also revised remaining paragraph.

Right on cue, the Taliban stage an outrage

Horrific video footage has emerged of Taliban insurgents stoning a couple to death for alleged adultery in northern Afghanistan.

How convenient for those in the US government who want an excuse to stay in Afghanistan. The Taliban - at least some of them - are British puppets, working with the other imperial factions within the various military establishments to maintain conflict, for the same end: the end of civilization and the depopulation of the planet. This has happened before, although not on such a scale and with our current form of consciousness, but we spirits have always come back in a new and improved form (i.e. with improved capabilities, in general). You just can't keep mankind down.

Loughner's search history took a long time to "find"

Jared Loughner did Internet research on lethal injection, solitary confinement and political assassinations before the Jan. 8 shootings in Tucson, law enforcement sources told The Washington Post.

Police seized Loughner's computer from his home shortly after the rampage, which killed six and wounded 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who is ready to begin full rehabilitation in Houston.

So, it should have taken them a couple of days, not nearly three weeks, to find this information and get it to the media, to save us a lot of time and effort trying to figure out what drove him. If it were fabricated to "prove" what the FBI wanted to prove, it wouldn't be the first time.

Loughner: Existentialist gone wild?

TUCSON — Jared L. Loughner, the man accused of opening fire outside a Tucson supermarket on Jan. 8 in what the authorities consider an attempted assassination of Representative Gabrielle Giffords, researched famous assassins, the death penalty and solitary confinement on the Internet before the shootings, an official close to the investigation said Wednesday.
So, before collapsing headlong into psychosis and violence, Jared Loughner had nursed a Weltanschauung—a worldview—and that worldview was atheism of the nihilistic variety. He was a Dostoevskian ”underground man”; a Raskolnikov atheist ruminating on semantics and nihilism. Tierney also says Loughner was percolating a longstanding hatred toward his congressional district’s representative, Gabriella Giffords, and possessed a serious inclination to play Heath Ledger’s Joker for real:

Since hearing of the rampage, Tierney has been trying to figure out why Loughner did what he allegedly did. “More chaos, maybe,” he says. “I think the reason he did it was mainly to just promote chaos...."

I'm beginning to wonder whether Loughner was in fact crazy, or if he was putting on a "crazy act." Assuming this evidence isn't fabricated, this pretty much proves that he knew that what he was doing was wrong, in which case, his trial should take a couple of days before the guilty verdict is produced and the death sentence handed down.

There are reports that he read Nietzshe's Beyond Good and Evil, which might explain a lot about him.

Terrorism experts discover that terrorists prefer unprotected targets

The suicide bombing at a busy international airport outside Moscow exposes the vulnerable underbelly of airports in this country and around the world, several security experts and former anti-terrorist government officials say.

But I thought that we wouldn't have to fight them over here because we're fighting them over there. Let me guess: it would be worse if we weren't over there. They can't prove it, but we can't disprove it. That's the entire basis of the "war on terror": the inability to prove a negative (that it wouldn't be worse, or for Iran to prove that it doesn't have nukes).

How the Devil might have influenced Loughner

Another likely factor behind Jared Loughner's actions is the direct influence of Sorath (Hebrew for Beast), a.k.a. the Sun Demon, 6-6-6, Antichrist, or Devil. When this occurred to me, I referred to Christ and Antichrist by Peter Tradowsky and found a few passages which seems to fit Loughner:

The result of Sorath's activity in respect of the thinking and sense-impressions is that man should eventually lose his confidence in both; he is to be cut off from the world in which he grew up. He is led to believe that he is inescapably confined within a world of illusion. p 57
Sorath drives the man of action into senseless acts by encouraging him to carry out actions that only serve the physical material body and do not serve other people.... It is he, too, who harnesses the human will to the terrible swing between paralysis and aggression. p 58
With all this the human will, which is unable to work actively in the spiritual part of the social organism (to which it corresponds) because it is paralysed, remains to unfulfilled so disengaged that a tremendous urge for experience overwhelms the soul, which then seeks by all means at its disposal to satisfy this hunger. This takes place on the one hand through aggression, conflict, violence; on the other hand through seeking what it has not experienced in a spiritual way through material means - that is, through drugs of all description. p 62

Woman resorts to sanctimony as excuse for torturing dog to death

A US woman has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly hanging her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burning its body after it chewed on her Bible.

Animal control officers said that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a 'devil dog' and she worried it could harm neighbourhood children.

It is typical for Satanists to use some supposed offense against God as an excuse for their worst cruelty. Take the Salem Witch Trials, for example, which were run by Satanists against local non-Satanists. Either that, or she's insane.

Interesting insight into Loughner's all-nighter before shooting

The unassuming Loughner started forcing himself to stay awake in an effort to experience "lucid dreaming," a trance-like state in which a person goes directly from waking to dreaming with no lapse in consciousness.

A timeline of Loughner's behavior the night before the shooting -- when he crisscrossed Tucson's northwest side, stopping at two Wal-Marts, a Walgreens pharmacy and three convenience stores between midnight and sunrise -- is typical of the way Gutierrez remembers him.

"He got really into depriving himself of sleep ... It had to be natural. He explained this.

Actual dreams occur typically as we awaken, and our astral body returns from its "travels" in the spiritual world. They are really meaningless, and cannot occur while we're awake.

It seems that "lucid" dreaming consists of hallucinations caused by sleep deprivation. Hallucinations, as I mention in an essay on the 8th Sphere, facilitate Satan's theft of free will, which would seem to make one more vulnerable to the influence of evil spirits. Not only that, but being tired and unable to think clearly also opens the door to the influence of various spirits.

It would be interesting to see the sleight of logic behind Loughner's belief that the world is his own illusion, and yet believing that there was some point in controlling it. In fact, the world is an illusion, but created by God to allow us to have certain experiences necessary for our evolution, including by controlling it to some extent through the exercise of reason and free will. Loughner seems to be doing just the opposite: seeking to control what he believes is his own dream by simply destroying what he doesn't like about it.

Digital music

As I feared, purchasing a couple of choice SACDs (Bach's Magnificat by Channel Classics and McCoy Tyner's Land of Giants by Telarc) for my old Sony DVP NS 755V, would make an SACD-addict out of me, and now I have to fight the compulsion to order more SACDs. The sound is so natural that I find myself listening to music, and not audio.

To get the most out of SACDs and CDs, they need to be "clarified" periodically with a Bedini Clarifier. The improvement, which is not subtle, obviously is due to an improved ability to read the disc. How this translates into an improved corrected error rate is beyond me, but I suspect that the error-correction isn't all it's said to be, and that by reducing raw errors, the corrected error rate is reduced.

One of the advantages of SACDs is the simplicity of the playback circuitry, and the fact that it is all analog. There's no high-speed switching-and-glitching circuitry intimately bound up with low-level analog circuitry. All that is required for SACD playback, after the bitstream is corrected and decrypted, is essentially a filter which integrates the pulse-density modulated bitstream (Direct Stream Digital) and produces the original waveform with negligible distortion of any kind, and none of the artificiality caused by digital interpolation, which almost every CD player uses. Some Audio Note CD players, considered by many audiophiles to be the only ones to properly replay CDs precisely because they avoid the use of both interpolators and brick-wall filters, go for $40,000 or more. Still, because they don't use oversampling or brick-wall filters, there is high frequency noise on the output which can cause problems with some audio equipment down the line. Filtering out the noise would roll off the high end and/or introduce phase distortion, which causes misalignment of musical harmonics. So, if you want to "get it right" with CDs, you have to take out a mortgage and risk frying your tweeters.

SACDs unfortunately didn't replace CDs as Sony hoped they would, and I think it's precisely because they are so natural-sounding and so inexpensive to play back. One popular audio gear reviewer initially praised SACDs, and later came out with an insane critique on the basis that they're TOO SMOOTH.

LaRouche has exposed the war on classical culture, including the war on Bach's influence [1], and he is a critic of digital audio, and I think there's a connection. If everyone were to have access to a truly natural audio medium (prevented by releasing pop music in inferior digital formats), they would gravitate toward classical music, which wouldn't set well with those waging a war on our souls.

[1] The referenced page refers to a "Kit Kat Club" as one of Bach's major foes. This odd spelling makes sense when converted to numbers: 40 32 38, i.e. 72 38, i.e. 9 11, two of Satanism's "sacred" numbers.

Aspects of Loughner not widely reported

Mark DeBeliso, 19, said Loughner shouted out questions six or seven times during a 90-minute class. The outbursts concerned the apocalypse and death, DeBeliso said.

"It was the kind of stuff where you'd stop and think, 'What in the world is this kid talking about?"
Chris Walker, another PCC sophomore, said Loughner came to house for dinner "all the time." Loughner liked heavy metal and classic rock music and was a "big video gamer," said Walker, 19.

"He was the nicest kid, quietest guy," said Walker.

Although Loughner's mind was fertile soil for the influences of all sorts of devilish spirits, it's just as possible that his schizophrenia magnified all of the bad influences he had absorbed over the years, along with his video-game playing, leading to his delusions and subsequent implementation of a combination of revenge fantasy and "mayhem fest," a phrase he once wrote during one of his classes (which alone should have served as a big red flag). He apparently believed that the world is a dream that he can control, and it seems that his "dream script" included his escape, perhaps explaining why he wore ear plugs. From this perspective, he wouldn't have seen any harm in what he did - it was just a dream which he sought to control, although he couldn't deny the reality of ear damage from firing a gun. So, his reality is a combination of delusions and aspects of reality which he can't deny, and he was able to deny the reality of those he shot. To him, they were figures in a video game.

Someone almost calls a spade a spade

I realize that these evil men don’t represent Jews everywhere, nor do they even represent the entire rabbinic community. There are many esteemed rabbis who reject outright the satanic mindset permeating through the landscape of the sick minds of people like Elyahu, his cohorts and evil colleagues.
More to the point, it is abundantly clear that thousands of Israeli soldiers would rather heed and obey their respective rabbis’ homilies than their army superiors’ instructions when it comes to treating Palestinians. This fact was revealed during the Israeli onslaught on Gaza two years ago when Israeli soldiers knowingly and deliberately murdered innocent civilians, including children, by the hundreds.

He's getting warm - they're not Satanic rabbis, but Satanists disguised as rabbis, and those "soldiers" who used military might on defenseless civilians aren't just adopting the attitude of these "rabbi"-Satanists - they're Satanists using the rabbi's statements as a cover for what they would have done anyways with whatever excuse. They probably cut their "magical" teeth as youngsters in the settlements, abusing Palestinians in less extreme ways. If mere protests could do any good, they would have changed their ways by now. The best weapon against them is exposure, because they can't operate when enough people understand what they're doing.

The Palestinians are being abused largely in order to fan the flames of hatred for "Israel" and the US, the British Empire's dumb giant which was taken over through the intelligence agencies during WWII. They're also being abused to provide Satanists in the IDF with opportunities for advanced SRA, and to experiment with creating abject hopelessness and driving the higher souls of people out of the world, forever. Consider the results seen in those who have been subjected to "enhanced [>54>6x9] interrogation," which has nothing to do with interrogation. They're typically basket cases. Those responsible should know that they cannot hide from God, and that they will be held responsible when they eventually slither off their mortal coil and find themselves in a system of justice not controlled by Satan. Since they're absolutely certain that they'll never be held accountable, they'll have to find out the hard way that Satan reserved his biggest lies for his followers.

Last throes of January 2011 (revised)

Revision: see Notes

A pair of major car bombings targeted checkpoints on the outskirts of the Shi’ite holy city of Karbala today, killing at least 51 people and wounding an estimated 200 others. The vast majority of the casualties were pilgrims, headed to the city for religious rituals.
So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but it is widely assumed that it is one of the assorted Sunni militant factions linked with al-Qaeda in Iraq....

Defenders of the "war on terror" policy would predictably claim that terrorism would be worse without having destroyed Iraq and Afghanistan, and beginning to destroy nuclear-armed Pakistan (thanks to the U.S. government - see How US Helped Pakistan get nukes), and it's up to us to disprove it. Perhaps it would have been worse here - more 9/11's - until the neo-cons got their war on civilization and mankind.

Revision: : inserted "Pakistan" after "nuclear-armed" and added "on civilization and mankind" at end.

A monster in a red g-string?

It appears that Loughner is being set up to take the fall as an evil mastermind, to be executed or locked up for life in a high-security prison, despite all the evidence that he's a raging lunatic. Consider the evidence of him posing in a red g-string with his gun. Why would this "evil mastermind" pose in this manner? It's possible that even he doesn't know. Might it be an indication of Satanic spirits driving him? Urges from these beings, as indicated by Twin Peaks, stimulate both sexuality and and the urge to kill and destroy. Note the combination: the g-string and the Glock: sex and violence. I have a hard time believing that such a freak could be a cold, calculating mass murderer. Perhaps an alien being that drove him to do it was the cold-blooded mastermind.

His video "tour" of his one-time college is additional evidence that he's bonkers. His narration consists of a tossed salad of words and phrases obtained from wingnut conspiracy theories. (It supposedly contained speech reversals, but lossily-compressed audio is notorious for masking reversals. The one "reversal" I could find was patently bogus.) This is supposedly a symptom of schizophrenia, which combined with the various influences he absorbed, I suspect made him vulnerable to various Satanic spirits. Determining precisely which type requires a higher authority, but considering the lack of subtlety in his attack, the Spirits of Darkness are my primary suspects, since they goad people into doing monstrous things, like Andrea Yates methodically killing all of her children, and then throw them away like a used Kleenex. Demons don't sacrifice their tools. I can understand (not condone) him shooting Giffords, since to him she might have represented a means to strike back at the federal government, the villain of his worldview. But to then turn on those who are also supposedly victims? A little girl and elderly people? It's beyond insane - it's inhuman.

Loughner puzzled by his constant hostility

Last May 9, at two in the morning, Jared Lee Loughner typed a question to a group of about 50 online gamers located around the world: "Does anyone have aggression 24/7?"

I find this interesting because Loughner couldn't understand his feelings of hostility. If he were on an anti-depressant, that might explain it, but he apparently wasn't on any medications. But most people can understand why they feel hostile, because their hostility is the results of thoughts, and it comes and goes. These feeling were new to him, apparently, because earlier in his life, he was a member of a school band, and this doesn't seem like something he would have done if he had a generalized constant hostility.

One possibility is that he was being influenced by the Spirits of Darkness in his will-region (which they can do to the point of using someone as a puppet). Feeding their impulses into this region would cause Loughner to behave in a hostile manner, to feel hostile, and to generate thoughts to "explain" his feelings. I wrote about this phenomenon in my essay Andrea Yates and the Spirits of Darkness:

No religious conviction, no matter how ardently believed or how dazed the mind which holds that belief, is going to so powerfully override the motherly instinct to protect her children from physical harm. So, I conclude that her instincts had been overridden by alien impulses of will.

Furthermore, it just so happens that there is a class of Satanic beings, known as Spirits of Darkness, which can insinuate such impulses into the three main functional levels of the human soul (thinking, feeling, and willing). These beings, since they were cast down to Earth in 1879, have been under the command of Mammon. In The Archangel Michael: His Mission and Ours, Rudolf Steiner stated "For occultists [i.e. white-path initiates or their students], Mammon is not only the god of money. Mammon is the leader of all the dark, lower forces [i.e. Satanic forces inhabiting the subphysical realm]. His troops attack not just the human soul, but the physical bodies of humans as well, devouring and destroying them." (p 33) So, the Spirits of Darkness, or SoDs, as subordinates of Mammon, would strive to induce people to kill other people, and they can do so, especially to people with weakened resistance.

Where did Loughner get the money?

The Wall Street Journal has unearthed 131 posts written in an online forum for gamers between April and June 2010. Some of the comments are chatter about weight lifting, rejection by women, or his difficulties job hunting (he wrote that he hadn't had a paycheck in six months, submitted 65 applications without an interview, and confessed to a "mental breakdown" after getting fired from five jobs)....

So, as of November 30th, when he bought a $500 Glock, he had been out of minimum-pay jobs for about a year. The authorities have yet to explain how he managed to afford it.

Loughner had Angels on his mind, and perhaps in it

Michelle Montanaro, a second-grade teacher and mother of Jared's onetime best friend Alex Montanaro, said that during a 2007 visit to their home, Loughner spoke excitedly about becoming a writer and told an indecipherable story about an angel talking to a reporter after the end of the world. "I didn't really understand it," Montanaro said. "Neither did Alex. We just sort of looked at each other."

This story might have been an effect of being influenced by the Spirits of Darkness, which are Angels who allied themselves with Satan and were subsequently transferred to Satan's "underworld," from where they constantly seek to "egg on" weak-minded people to do things such as what Loughner did, and what Andrea Yates did. Note that this story can be construed as an incentive provided by the Spirits of Darkness: if you help to destroy civilization, you will survive and commune with Angels - a variation on the Wahhabite story fed to would-be suicide bombers.

Why would Obama want to meet Dupnik?

Original caption: President Barack Obama shakes hands with Sheriff Clarence Dupnik as he and first lady Michelle Obama arrive in Tucson, Ariz., to attend a memorial service for victims of last Saturday's shooting rampage that killed six people and left 14 injured, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011.

Why was it so important for Obama to meet Sheriff Dupnik? Why would he even want to be associated with him, considering that at best Dupnik's department missed the glaring warning signs that Loughner was about to go nuts and kill someone?

Rudolf Steiner: Cause of schizophrenia is improper soul-development

Let us take an example which has been emphasised before and which can be found in my little work The Education of the Child in the Light of Anthroposophy. There it says that the child up to the seventh year of age primarily feels the impulse in all its actions to imitate. Then, between the changing of the teeth and puberty, its development is characterised by what might be called “orientating oneself according to an authority” or acting according to the impression made on us by another person. Let us assume that these two stages of imitation and bowing to authority are ignored. If no account is taken of them the outer body, instead of becoming an instrument of the soul, will develop irregularly and the soul will then no longer have the opportunity in the consecutive periods of human development to affect in the correct way the irregular nature of the outer human being and interact with it. Then, when the human being enters a new stage of development at significant periods in human life, we see that to a certain degree a member of his being may have fallen behind if these rules are not observed. Ignoring this law lies at the basis of schizophrenia, dementia praecox. By ignoring the correct processes in earlier periods dementia praecox can arise as disharmony between the inner and outer human being, a symptom of belated imitation.

One of the more interesting statements of the above excerpt is "the soul will then no longer have the opportunity in the consecutive periods of human development to affect in the correct way the irregular nature of the outer human being and interact with it." It seems to me that this loose connection between the body and soul would provide an opportunity for the Spirits of Darkness to step in and take over. As I wrote in a previous entry, this crime was so monstrous and inhuman (on par with what Satanists routinely/ritually perpetrate in the "war on terror" zone) that it had the same quality as Andrea Yates' methodical murder of all of her children, which I attributed to the Spirits of Darkness. Because of the confused nature of a schizophrenic's mind, the signs of such influence would be very difficult or impossible to detect, although there are some possible signs, such as his expressed interest in nihilism ("a viewpoint that traditional values and beliefs are unfounded and that existence is senseless and useless"), and in sowing chaos, which is one influence of the Spirits of Darkness. (Clearly, if there were an intelligence agency behind this atrocity - which essentially kicked off Obama's 2012 campaign - Loughner's well-known attitude would have made him a prime choice for their zombie killer, and the timing was just right to turn it into a media event: the winter, when Tucson's a good place to be.) His choice of reading material might have opened the door to the influence of the Spirits of Darkness, considering that Nietzsche acted as Satan's stenographer, essentially, at times.

Obama's peace

In spite of a White House report that "progress" is being made in Afghanistan, by virtually any measure the war has significantly deteriorated since the Obama administration surged troops into Kandahar and Helmand provinces.

The standard is the destruction of civilization and the depopulation of the planet. So, war is peace - of the graveyard - eventually.

Some have noted that Obama's recent appearance in Tucson seemed more like a campaign rally than a memorial service. The mass murder was widely used as a means to attack one of his potential opponents, Sarah Palin, who used crosshairs to symbolize political targeting of Obama's death-care supporters. He's been in campaign mode since returning from vacation, promising to finally get the economy back on track - by which he means escalating the economic BS to unprecedented levels to get re-elected (or reappointed) to serve his masters the best he can.

Bankers thank us for bailout with higher food and fuel costs

A year-end surge in gasoline prices ratcheted up consumer inflation expectations to their highest in more than two years, according to the latest data from Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan.

Perhaps they'll throw in some new hostilities toward China as a bonus, on the basis that they're supposedly driving up demand, when the real cause is all those baseless bailout bucks being plowed into anything of real value, including that most useful tool, Congress.

Previous "warming" forecasts wrong? Try longer range!

Even if humans stop producing excess carbon dioxide in 2100, the lingering effects of global warming could span the next millennia. The results? By the year 3000, global warming would be more than a hot topic - the West Antarctic ice sheet could collapse, and global sea levels would rise by about 13 feet (4 meters)....

Sounds like someone needed an excuse for something they're about to cram down our throats.

Psychiatrist declares Loughner to be a paranoid schizophrenic

Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world. People with schizophrenia have an altered perception of reality, often a significant loss of contact with reality. They may see or hear things that don’t exist, speak in strange or confusing ways, believe that others are trying to harm them, or feel like they’re being constantly watched. With such a blurred line between the real and the imaginary, schizophrenia makes it difficult—even frightening—to negotiate the activities of daily life. In response, people with schizophrenia may withdraw from the outside world or act out in confusion and fear.

Q: Quite early in the news cycle, the media more or less diagnosed Jared Loughner as paranoid schizophrenic. Do you think that's accurate?

A: He's a textbook case.
Q: I was struck by his obsession with "lucid dreaming."

A: When someone comes in and talks about lucid dreaming, drugs are the first thing I wonder about. But with schizophrenia, you can get almost anything that's weird like that. In itself, it didn't stand out to me.

If he's such a textbook case, then it would have been easy for a shrink to simply observe him, such as by sitting in on a class of his, and make a diagnosis. There were students and teachers in fear for their lives, and the school administration couldn't even be bothered to have a shrink look into the situation. But then perhaps they did get some shrinks involved, but the wrong kind. Also of interest is the fact that the authorities so far haven't explained how Loughner could afford a Glock, which is an expense gun for someone out of a minimum-wage job.

Tucson (Pima County) deputies allegedly claimed that Loughner was in the mental health system

Jared Loughner, pronounced by the Sheriff as Lock-ner, saying it was the Polish pronunciation. Of course he meant Scott or Irish but that isn’t the point. THE POINT IS HE AND HIS OFFICE HAVE HAD PREVIOUS CONTACT WITH THE ALLEGED ASSAILANT IN THE PAST and that is how he knows how to pronounce the name.
Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers. WHEN PIMA COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WAS INFORMED, HIS DEPUTIES ASSURED THE VICTIMS THAT HE WAS BEING WELL MANAGED BY THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM. It was also suggested that further pressing of charges would be unnecessary and probably cause more problems than it solved....

As far as I know, LaRouche was the first to suggest that Loughner was being manipulated by an intelligence agency, and if true, this is pretty good evidence that he was right.

Too bad Loughner isn't a Muslim

If the Tucson massacre weren't a black op, I think that a lot of the blame can be laid at the feet of the "war on terror," which has programmed us to expect terrorism to come from people of the Islamic persuasion, who can become persons of interest for the most innocuous activities. In Loughner's case, the warning signs were so overwhelming, and the response so underwhelming, that it's hard to believe that he wasn't being protected by some intelligence agency working with the sheriff's department.

It would be interesting to learn whether someone convinced Giffords that she didn't need to worry about security. Perhaps someone on her staff knows.

Obamaville of the Caribbean

A year since a cataclysmic earthquake levelled much of Haiti, little has changed for the 1.2 million residents still scraping an existence in these squalid refugee camps.

Survivors have been further blighted by an outbreak of the deadly water-borne disease cholera. The illness has struck 155,000 since October, killing 3,651.

If Obama remains in office, and Glass-Steagall isn't implemented, we're all soon going to be Haitians.

Loughner was on Tucson Sheriff's radar

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik got plenty of attention when he quickly pinned the blame for the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., on conservatives, Rush Limbaugh and even Republican opposition to the “progress” being sought by his fellow Democrats.

But it has now been revealed that Dupnik’s department had prior interaction with suspect Jared Loughner. The department is still holding back details of the calls, but has now confirmed that deputies made multiple visits to the Lougner home in recent years.

This is beginning to look more and more like what LaRouche claims it is - a zombie killer controlled by an intelligence operation. Notice how the sheriff is trying to deflect blame from the fact that they knew Loughner was unbalanced and that his department did nothing to even prevent him from getting a gun, and from the lack of security, to inflammatory political rhetoric which Loughner apparently couldn't comprehend.

Intriguing lack of security for Giffords

It might prove interesting to investigate why there was no security for Giffords last Saturday. It seems to me that there is usually some security at any appearance by a member of Congress, and that the heightened controversy over health care increased the need for security. So, why wasn't there any? Did someone, such as a staff member who wasn't at the event where the shooting took place, convince her that she didn't need any?

Classify Westboro as enemy combatants

Well, they are. At the very least we should recognize that they're not human, and thus have no human rights. We could impound them in a dog kennel, check them for rabies, and see if any humans claim them. If so, the human would be required to prevent them from running loose and attacking people.

LPAC hypothesizes plot to use Loughner as a zombie killer

All these and other facts in the public record indicate that Jared Loughner had been pre-primed for an attack against Rep. Giffords; all that was lacking was the suggestion. Last fall at the latest, when Pima community college expelled him on psychiatric grounds, and required him to get a psychiatric clearance before he could return, he "entered the system," in the sense that his background was then available, through government psychiatric agencies, to the unknown controller who later planted the suggestion to assassinate Rep. Gifford.

Within hours of the shooting, the first coverage of major media, led by the Morgan-owned New York Times, blamed Sarah Palin for the killing because of her opposition to the Hitler-like Obama healthcare "reform." This had been coordinated in advance.

I've been assuming that Loughner was never reported to the mental health system, but this hypothesis assumes that he was reported, and that the system decided to use him as a zombie killer whenever it suited their purposes. I also never heard of a movement to encourage "conscious dreaming," although Loughner's video-game habit might have given him an affinity for it. As indicated by the quotation in the previous entry regarding Satan's efforts to "draw them down into the realm of half-conscious sleep and dreams," this movement might be another of Satan's traps.

The media's drumbeat against harsh criticism of politicians was beginning to bug me, and I sensed that it was intended to create peer pressure against criticizing our political leaders, who are only trying to destroy civilization. I also sensed that it is intended to lead to an Orwellian thought-police state.

Another effect of this incident will probably be to let Gov. Brewer appoint someone more in step with the new fascist Congress to take Giffords' place.

Website revision

After learning the Jared Loughner (the shooter in the recent shooting rampage in Tucson) was at one time an avid video-gamer, I revised Programming Kids for Satanism with Video Games. In light of Loughner's interest in "conscience [conscious] dreaming" (perhaps related to the trance-like state induced by video games), I found it interesting that the following is one of the opening quotations:

...the Dragonlike serpent-form of Ahriman [Satan] winds its way among the human beings shining in the astral light, trying to ensnare and embrace them, to draw them down into the realm of half-conscious sleep and dreams. There, caught in this web of illusion, human beings would become world-dreamers [i.e. they would imagine fantasy-worlds], AND IN THIS CONDITION THEY WOULD BE A PREY TO THE AHRIMANIC [Satanic] POWERS.

The following excerpts shed some light on Loughner's concept of "conscious dreaming":

At 2:00 a.m. on Saturday—about eight hours before he allegedly killed six people and wounded 14, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), in Tucson—Jared Lee Loughner phoned an old and close friend with whom he had gone to high school and college. The friend, Bryce Tierney....
He also describes Loughner as being obsessed with "lucid dreaming"—that is, the idea that conscious dreams are AN ALTERNATIVE REALITY THAT A PERSON CAN INHABIT AND CONTROL—and says Loughner became "more interested in this world than our reality." Tierney adds, "I saw his dream journal once. That's the golden piece of evidence. You want to know what goes on in Jared Loughner's mind, there's a dream journal that will tell you everything."

Video games a possible factor in Tucson slaughter

Mr. Loughner was a scrawny, average teenager with a mop of curly hair. He played saxophone at football games and jammed with a friend's garage band. In his freshman and sophomore years at Mountain View High School, Mr. Loughner flew under the radar.

"All he did was play video games and play music," said Tommy Marriotti, a high school friend. Mr. Marriotti said much of Mr. Loughner's free time was devoted to the school band. He wasn't especially political, Mr. Marriotti said, though he expressed frustration with the Bush Administration.

If Loughner continued playing video games, this combined with his other mental problems might explain why he gunned down so many people.

It turns out that at one point two cops delivered a notice to Loughner's home to notify him that he had been kicked out of college, and it seems to me that the police should have made a couple of calls to get some more details, and let the FBI know that there is good reason to believe that he is not qualified to have a gun.

That child was not innocent. This is a nation of depraved perverts who pass their children through the fire of their rage against God & all-consuming lust. From the womb, she was taught to hate God & mock His servants. That child is better off dead, so the cup of her iniquity will not overflow! Rep. Giffords passed laws trying to keep WBC watchers off the street corners. In repayment, God sent the shooter when she took to a street corner! The blood of the 9-year-old is on Rep. Giffords’ hands! This nation rejoiced & your officials were ho-hum when a violent veteran stalked 5 WBC picketers with 90 rounds of ammunition. In repayment, God sent the shooter with 90 rounds of ammunition & killed your federal judge, your child, & others. Now let’s see if you’re so ho-hum in the face of God’s wrath!

Giffords shooter might have had an accomplice

Authorities said Giffords, 40, was targeted at a public gathering by a man with a semiautomatic weapon around 10 a.m. Saturday outside a busy Tucson supermarket. Arizona's chief federal judge and five others were killed and 14 people were injured, including the Democrat lawmaker.
"He was definitely on a mission," according to event volunteer Alex Villeca, former Giffords intern.

Police say the shooter was in custody, and was identified by people familiar with the investigation as Jared Loughner, 22. U.S. officials who provided his name to the AP spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release it publicly.

His motivation was not immediately known, but Dupnik described him as mentally unstable and possibly acting with an accomplice.

His office said a man possibly associated with the suspect who was near the scene was being sought. The man, who was photographed by a security camera, was described as white with dark hair and 40-45 years old.

Authorities are searching for a place known only as "the black lodge."

Was Loughner "mind-controlled?" (revised)

It's clear that Rep. Gifford's assailant, Jared Loughner, doesn't have a coherent thought in his mind, using the term "mind" loosely. So, trying to ascertain some motive by analyzing his "thoughts" is futile for the most part. However, perhaps one of his favorite topics, mind control, is a hint of what's driving him. In his "video" entitled How To: Mind Controller, he states that "If I'm the mind controller then I control the belief and religion." But down below, he indicates that the control extends to action, thought, location, and food, perhaps indicating that besides feeling that his thoughts and actions were being manipulated in general, he specifically felt compelled to go to certain locations and to eat certain things.

In my essays on Andrea Yates, I contend that her actions were controlled by Spirits of Darkness, who were able to take temporary possession of her due to her weak defenses, to the point of overcoming her maternal instincts and forcing her to implacably kill all of her children. I also contend that they targeted her because killing her children, all named after Biblical heroes, was a means of proclaiming "Satan was here."

The attack on Giffords and about 20 other people have this same quality about them - as if the Spirits of Darkness are using some expendable mindless puppet's fixation on Giffords to insinuate their control over his will, and compelling him to commit this inhuman deed. It just has this monstrous quality about it, as if it came from some inhuman being that regards humans as ants and enjoys killing and terrorizing them. This would also explain Loughner's interest in mind control. Note how he claims that controlling someone's "grammar" is a means of mind control - in other words, planting thoughts in their mind. This is one aspect of how the Spirits of Darkness operate. Another aspect is control over their will, forcing them to do something even if there is apparently no human motive.

It's also interesting that the shopping center where Giffords was attacked is fairly close to a ley line, where the influence of these beings would be greater than in many other places.

Threats against Giffords should have triggered security response

But it's worth noting that Giffords -- who in 2006 became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, at 36 -- has, for more than a year, been the target of violence-tinged rhetoric from political opponents and of threats that appear to have come from right-wing activists.

Asked by the New York Post whether his daughter had any enemies, Giffords's father replied: "The whole tea party."

In August 2009, an attendee at a Giffords town-hall meeting dropped a handgun, leading Giffords's staff to call the police. "We have never felt the need before to notify law enforcement when we hold these events," her spokesman said at the time.

All the more reason for her to have been provided with security, whether she felt endangered or not.

Why wasn't Giffords shooter in a mental ward?

When I learned of the circumstances of the shooting incident of 1/8/11 ("9/11") in which Rep. Giffords was shot, I figured that the shooter had to be insane. When I discovered his YouTube videos, I realized that he's so insane that it's hard to believe that he's not locked up in a mental ward, and even harder to believe that he was able to obtain and keep a gun, of which he published a photo on his MySpace page. Then there's the apparent lack of security for Giffords and her staff, during a supposed war on terror. So, there's something fishy going on.

It's likely that Gifford's political career is over, in which case her replacement will be appointed by Gov. Brewer, a vacuous, fascist puppet of the Correctional Corp. of America who has started killing transplant candidates to save money. CCA prisons are notorious for prisoner abuse, and studies have shown that prison privatization makes no sense from a fiscal perspective, which is its ostensible motive.

"Representative" Garrett proposes effectively gutting Constitution

While the House Republican leadership was reading the entirety of the U.S. Constitution on floor of the House, and the the House Republican Conference pledged to change the House rules so that anyone introducing a bill would have to cite the authority under the Constitution for that bill, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) proposed an amendment to the proposed rule-change on Wednesday morning, to forbid a member of the Congress from citing "the General Welfare Clause" or the "Necessary and Proper Clause" as his authority. The House Republican Conference did not agree to his changes when he proposed them, but he has vowed to press for them.

And here's another vague, old-fashioned article he doesn't like:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
from Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution

More "war on terror" terrorism

Approximately two weeks ago (on December 20), Mohamed went to the airport in Kuwait to have his visa renewed, as he had done every three months without incident for the last year. This time, however, he was told by the visa officer that his name had been marked in the computer, and after waiting five hours, he was taken into a room and interrogated by officials WHO REFUSED TO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES [perhaps because they knew they were about to commit a war crime]. They then handcuffed and blindfolded him and drove him to some other locale. That was the start of a two-week-long, still ongoing nightmare during which he was imprisoned for a week in an unknown location by unknown captors, relentlessly interrogated, and severely beaten and threatened with even worse forms of torture.

As Commander-in-Chief, Obama is responsible for this torture, torment, and terror inflicted on an American citizen as part of the "war on terror," here exposed as a Satanist reign of terror. This was indeed another case of advanced SRA, which is the essence of Satanism, and it had nothing to do with obtaining accurate information. The victim will have psychological scars for a long time. Will Obama investigate it? If he doesn't, he's admitting that he approves.

Palestinians adopt Obamacare

Medical sources said a 65-year-old Palestinian, who was reported to be an unarmed civilian, was brought dead to hospital with several bullet wounds to the upper part of his body. They said the man had been shot in a building the soldiers had raided to arrest one of the Hamas members.

The man who was killed, Amr Qawasme, was asleep when soldiers broke into his home before dawn. His wife, Sobheye, said IDF troops brushed past her into the bedroom, where she heard several shots fired. When she went in, she found her husband in a pool of blood.

Think of it as deep sedation, and a step toward global cooling (i.e. depopulation).

The Invisible Empire's war on LaRouche

After returning to London, Erica Duggan was immediately surrounded by a coven of low-level retainers scooped from prior intelligence operations against LaRouche, some of them dating back to late 1970s....
The soul will be made non-existent with the aid of a drug. Taking a ‘sound point of view’, people will invent a vaccine to influence the organism as early as possible, preferably as soon as it is born, so that this human body never even gets the idea that there is a soul and a spirit.

[The "mental health" movement was launched in Britain by the head of the Bank of England. Perhaps he was hearing voices in his head, telling him to establish the "mental health" movement. After all, the Spirits of Darkness apparently target those whom they find most useful, and the head of the Bank of England is very useful.]

One should not be astonished that the late George Orwell conceived his 1984 novel after a period of exposure to a group of Rees's [1] followers.

The use of "coven" in the top quote is by no means an exaggeration. After recognizing the actual nature of SRA, and then happening to read an article about the early attacks on the LaRouche movement, I realized that those who were kidnapping and "deprogramming" members of the LaRouche movement were actually subjecting them to SRA. Other accounts of confrontations between the LaRouche movement and its enemies made it clear to me that these enemies were Satanists. One woman whom I recognized as a literal witch due partly to her incessant cruelty was clearly programmed to parrot "LaRouche [mispronounced] - isn't he a socialist?" whenever his name was mentioned. The reason for their attacks must be that the LaRouche movement has done more to expose their high-level influences than anyone else. (He also exposed certain low-level aspects of Satanism, particularly the "Hellfire" aspects, which are really the most dangerous because it literally seduces people into becoming possessed in an initial manner.) For instance, LaRouche exposed the oligarchy's control over global drug trafficking, an "opium war" on mankind (an undeniably dirty business - the book Dope Inc. provoked their initial attacks on LaRouche). It's the war on the human mind that proves that this, the Devil's empire, has no good intentions toward mankind. He also exposed the consummately evil Bertrand Russell, who was perhaps the actual inspiration, through Crowley, for the modern Satanist movement. LaRouche's promotion of real science, as opposed to the parodies which Venice and its successors have fed to us in the guise of real science, is another of the many reasons they have put him on their permanent "to get" list.

Is support for the enemy of mankind a means of defending democracy?

Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR), a non-profit organization of psychologists committed to social change and social justice, has written a letter to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, protesting “the needless brutality of the conditions to which 23-year-old PFC Bradley Manning is being subjected” at the Marine Corps brig at Quantico, Virginia.
If there is one aspect of Manning’s situation I wish PsySR had emphasized more, it concerns the use of bogus Prevention of Injury (POI) orders to justify some of the conditions of Manning’s imprisonment, including use of a rough, heavy “suicide blanket,” limitations on time out of his cell, waking him in the night to “check” on him, as well as “checking” on him every five minutes or so during the day to ask if he is alright, even though he is under 24-hr. video surveillance.

"Now this cosmic wisdom, which was intrinsically not evil but held holy secrets hidden within it, was carefully concealed by the initiates of Taotl. It was communicated to no one who had not been initiated correctly by the Taotl method. When a candidate had been initiated in the correct way, the teaching concerning the secrets of the cosmos was then imparted to him. Now, it was necessary for him to receive these secrets through initiation in a quite definite mood of soul. He had to feel in himself the inclination and desire to apply them on earth IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY WOULD SET UP THAT MECHANISTIC RIGID REALM OF DEATH.
Through the murder, the victim was to be prepared in his soul to strive upward to the Luciferic realm [the 8th Sphere], WHEREAS THE CANDIDATE FOR INITIATION WAS TO OBTAIN THE WISDOM TO MOULD THIS EARTHLY WORLD IN SUCH A WAY THAT SOULS WOULD BE DRIVEN OUT OF IT.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.
from 1984 by Orwell

Again, this treatment has nothing to do with obtaining information. Its purpose is to destroy souls, pure and simple, which the last time I checked is not included in the Constitution. Manning, as far as I can tell, was used for the purpose of leaking certain information so that it could be passed off as the hidden truth, and is now being scapegoated and fed to the Orwellian/Reesian soul-destroying shrinks for whom Jose Padilla, hidden away in some supermax prison, represents a smashing success. It would be very interesting to learn of Padilla's current state of mind, but I suspect that he's content to sit in his cage, without a thought in his mind except the terror of returning to the Bush-Cheney dungeon of horrors that destroyed him. The mere fact that Cheney allowed himself to be used by these monstrous "shrinks" is sufficient for me to consider him to be evil, and the fact that Obama hasn't stopped the torment of Manning speaks volumes about him.

Potential recruits to the US military should consider the possibility that they too might end up being incarcerated in some pit of Hell as a result of being charged with some crime.

Obama planning to build on his "economic success," even if it kills most of us

Reporting from Honolulu — President Obama called on Republicans to be equal partners in his efforts to jump-start the nation's fragile economy in the new year, pledging to work in good faith with the party as it prepares to assume greater power in Washington.

In his weekly address Saturday, Obama said economic data showed the economy has been "gaining traction" for months, and said his personal resolution for 2011 was to "do everything I can to make sure our economy is growing, creating jobs, and strengthening our middle class."
"Here's what I want you to know: I'm willing to work with anyone of either party who's got a good idea and the commitment to see it through. And we should all expect you to hold us accountable for our progress or our failure to deliver," Obama said.

To know? No - that's what he wants us to BELIEVE. Once again, he demonstrates his endless capacity for telling huge lies to the American people. The only "evidence" of a recovery are statements to that effect, and economic data taken out of context. The people know it's a bunch of crap, because shortly after hearing Obama's latest lie about some imaginary recovery, along comes some real-world evidence. Perhaps Obama thinks he can hypnotize us into ignoring physical reality. I'm sure that he wishes he could.

Another victim of Israel's "accidentally-ricocheting" tear gas canisters

Art student Emily Henochowicz was seriously injured during a protest against the IDF’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in late May.

The Judea and Samaria district police found no criminal wrongdoing in the actions of the Border Police soldiers who left an American art student without an eye after getting hit in the face with a tear gas canister at a protest in Qalandiyah six months ago.

(Reuters) - A senior Palestinian medical official said a woman died on Saturday after being treated for inhaling gas fired by Israeli forces quelling a protest a day earlier in the occupied West Bank.

Jawaher Abu Rahme, 35, was the second member of her family said to have died in one of the weekly protests held in the village of Bilin against an Israeli barrier built across the West Bank.

A brother, in his 20s, was killed in 2009 after a tear gas canister struck him in the chest.

After it ricocheted, of course, just as in the Emily Henochowicz case, because we know that Israel is a paragon of respect for human rights, and it is only because of the viciousness of the protesters that their aim is misdirected and that ricochets which end up killing and maiming are so common.
