T.J. Lane, school shooter: Narcissistic existentialist gone wild?


In a time long since, a time of repent, The Renaissance. In a quaint lonely town, sits a man with a frown. No job. No family. No crown. His luck had run out. Lost and alone. The streets were his home. His thoughts would solely consist of “why do we exist?” His only company to confide in was the vermin in the street. He longed for only one thing, the world to bow at his feet. They too should feel his secret fear. The dismal drear. His pain had made him sincere. He was better than the rest, all those ones he detests, within their castles, so vain. Selfish and conceited. They couldn’t care less about the peasents they mistreated. They were in their own world, it was a joyous one too. That castle, she stood just to do all she could to keep the peasents at bay, not the enemy away. They had no enemies in their filthy orgy. And in her, the castles every story, was just another chamber of Lucifer’s Laboratory. The world is a sandbox for all the wretched sinners. They simply create what they want and make themselves the winners. But the true winner, he has nothing at all. Enduring the pain of waiting for that castle to fall. Through his good deeds, the rats and the fleas. He will have for what he pleads, through the eradication of disease. So, to the castle he proceeds, like an ominous breeze through the trees. “Stay back!” The Guards screamed as they were thrown to their knees. “Oh God, have mercy, please!” The castle, she gasped and then so imprisoned her breath, to the shallow confines of her fragile chest. I’m on the lamb but I ain’t no sheep. I am Death. And you have always been the sod. So repulsive and so odd. You never even deserved the presence of God, and yet, I am here. Around your cradle I plod. Came on foot, without shod. How improper, how rude. However, they shall not mind the mud on my feet if there is blood on your sheet. Now! Feel death, not just mocking you. Not just stalking you but inside of you. Wriggle and writhe. Feel smaller beneath my might. Seizure in the Pestilence that is my scythe. Die, all of you.
from Facebook Message on Ohio School Shooter’s Profile: ‘Die, All of You’

I'm no shrink, but based on what I've read about narcissism, this appears to fit the description.  Also note that he seems lost, asking why we exist.  Clearly, his parents and society failed him, and he decided to lash out at it in a way calculated to cause maximum pain.  But at least he's not sitting in the Oval Office, with nuclear weapons at his disposal.

St. Giuliano's coven confesses


They prepared the trap in the police station. The woman was drawn into it, with no lawyer, with no witness, and the pack attacked! All barking wolves against a woman alone. Their usual game, twenty against one. Got a deja vu feeling?
Rosa revealed it last Friday on the TV show Quarto Grado: “They interrogated me for 16 hours, they were telling me that I was lying. To make me confess they beat me, they strangled me, they even pushed me outside the window and threatened to let me fall down”.
“When later they will understand they were wrong” –Rosa added– “they apologized. THEY SAID IT WAS THEIR METHOD TO OBTAIN INFORMATION”. [emphasis added]
from Amanda Knox’s Ordeal Everyday Clearer

It almost goes without saying that this undermines their "defamation case" against Knox's parents, whom the Italian "justice" system is dragging back to Italy. Again, note the implicit amorality of these "supermen," who are "super" by virtue of not being weighed down by a conscience.  It's the same banality as seen in the "explanations" for bombing children out tending their flock in Afghanistan, for purposes of terrorizing Afghans and Pakistanis as a result of not knowing who will be "accidentally" bombed next, as part of creating Hell on Earth. This same type of creature set up base in Turkey and slithered across the border to gun down civilians in cold blood, so that the British empire could point fingers at their next target, the Syrian government, as part of their drive to start a thermonuclear world war and unleash global chaos.

Another proposal in the pursuit of affordable "high end" audio

Rev A - See notes

It seems to me that if Sony really wants to popularize SACD, they should offer inexpensive SACD DACs with the potential to demonstrate the format's potential for great sound quality, and inexpensive SACD players that could be used as transports in conjunction with these DACs.

The reason for having a separate DAC would be to ensure that the DAC isn't affected by the transport's vibrations and its demands on the power supply, the latter of which I've recently learned can cause audible effects if the supplies aren't adequately isolated from each other. [1] (I'm not entirely convinced that vibrations cause a significant effect, although I can't rule it out.) If the DAC and transport share a common enclosure, it's hard for consumers to be certain that these issues have been addressed.

These inexpensive DACs would be designed to have excellent, but not cutting-edge stereo sound, so that audiophiles would aspire to more expensive gear with better sound and more channels and features. If it threatened to stifle demand for pricey gear, it wouldn't be put into production.

Such a DAC could probably be made at a very low cost, considering that all that's required for direct DSD-analog conversion is a special, inexpensive analog filter. [2] This would allow audiophiles to spend more of their audio budget on recordings, and to wait until the economy recovers, or more likely, to win the lottery, before getting better gear.

Another likely reason such a device isn't available is Sony's concern with minimizing access to the master-quality digital content of SACDs. However, it seems that Sony could reduce the key components to a sealed module so that the decryption circuitry would be destroyed in an attempt to access its output. Furthermore, if greater efforts were put into making pirates worry more, Sony could worry less about letting us have such a DAC.

Notes
Rev A: Corrected and clarified explanation of DSD in note 2, and deleted "consumers" after "ensure" in 2nd paragraph.
[1] Optical disc treatments evidently improve sound quality in cheap players, not by reducing errors at the output of the error-correction system (which are essentially zero despite rumors to the contrary spread by audio hucksters), but by reducing the amount of work the servos must perform to keep the laser on track.  This in turn reduces their effects on the servo power supplies. In cheap players, the servo power supplies aren't sufficiently isolated from the audio section's power supplies, so that servo-supply fluctuations caused by servo demands are passed to the analog section's power supplies, and they affect the output signal.  So, in cheap players, disc treatments improve sound by reducing fluctuations in the audio section's power supplies.  In well-designed players, they have no effect, other than the placebo effect.

[2] DSD is a digital waveform modulated with an analog technique.  The continuous analog information is contained in the relative density of ones and zeros, and it is extracted with a special but inexpensive analog filter.

Chnia scores one against the "free world"


"The United States' motive in parading as a 'protector' of the Arab peoples is not difficult to imagine. The problem is, what moral basis does it have for this patronizing and egotistical super-arrogance and self-confidence?," the paper said according to a Reuters report.
from China Labels Hillary's Comment "Totally Unacceptable," U.S. Is Super-Arrogant

Touché! This raises the issue of whether the riots in Afghanistan are intended to show how "democratic" the US is, by not violently cracking down on the rioters.  All the slaughter by airstrikes, drone-strikes, and sneak-attacks on defenseless people in the dead of the night (all of which are partly intended as sheer terror), have faded into the background.

Why the performance of high-priced disc transports isn't measured

Rev A (see Notes)

There are many claims that high-priced transports produce cleaner data, but no measurements to support these claims.  Robert Harley of the Absolute Sound might have inadvertently provided an explanation for why so many audio reviewers, including himself, resort to mumbo-jumbo and hand-waving when it comes to "explaining" the supposed differences in transport sound quality:
The Memory Player (see p. 120) might, indeed, produce a sonic improvement, but that improvement is certainly not attributable to the mechanism claimed by the manufacturer. First, uncorrected errors on CD playback are rare. The data stream read from a disc is rife with bit errors, but those errors are instantly corrected and replaced with the identical original data. Corrected bit errors result in absolutely no loss of information or change in sound quality. The CD’s CIRC (Cross-Interleaved Reed-Solomon Code) error-correction scheme is remarkably robust, allowing burst errors of up to 4000 consecutive bits (equivalent to 2.5mm of track length on a CD) to be reconstructed with the identical missing data. This is not interpolation or error concealment, but perfect bit-for-bit correction. This powerful error correction is what allows CD-ROM to work so well. Missing or interpolated data in audio data could introduce a momentary glitch; errors in computer code could cause a program to crash. Granted, CD-ROM has an extra layer of error detection and correction above and beyond that of CD, but that extra safeguard is rarely invoked. Second, if uncorrectable errors do occur (primarily because of disc scratches or dirt), error-concealment circuits replace the missing data with a best-guess interpolation based on the waveform’s values before and after the missing data. Error concealment is rarely audible. In some instances, concealment can be heard as a low-level tick sound. The manufacturer’s assertion that error concealment is commonplace, and results in “a congestion and harsh odd (order) harmonics borne of a synthetic tone” is simply false. Uncorrected errors, at worst, introduce momentary ticks, not a global change in sound quality. If the error is too great for concealment (12,300 consecutive bits, or 7.7mm of track length), the player momentarily mutes the signal. Furthermore, these interpolated data are not “called ECC (error correction codes)” in any of the technical literature. I must repeat that an uncorrectable error is a rare event on a CD that has not been abused. In fact, the uncorrected error rate for a reasonably well-made CD that has not been abused is roughly 10[exp]–10, or one error in every 10 billion bits. This isn’t to say that the Memory Player doesn’t improve the sound. There are many instances in high-end audio where an audible change exists that cannot be explained by our limited understanding of the science. Indeed, other mechanisms might be at work. But “a congestion and harsh odd (order) harmonics borne of a synthetic tone” is not one of them. I have some familiarity with this subject: I worked in a CD mastering lab where my job duties included modifying CD players to extract the various error-correction flags from the decoding chips for input to custom error-analyzers, performing bit-for-bit comparisons between the data on CD master tapes and CDs replicated from those masters, examining CD pit structures with a scanning electron microscope, and correlating error rates on replicated CDs with mastering parameters (see my Audio Engineering Society paper, co-written with Ray Keating, “CD-V Signal Optimization,” presented at the 1989 Hamburg convention). 
from Robert Harley comments on the Memory player
The Absolute Sound, December 2006

In other words, assuming that an optical-disc reader is functioning properly, and reading a disc that's in decent condition, its output will contain less than 1 error for every ten billion bits!  The cheapest CD player therefore produces essentially the same data as the most expensive transport.

While searching for reviews of high-priced transports which include performance measurements, I found an article written by someone else who wanted to get to the bottom of this particular issue, and did so by performing a test.  He found that the above claim by Robert Harley is correct.  So, the notion that there is any advantage to spending enormous amounts on CD transports is pretty thoroughly discredited, and additional refinements have been made in optical disc technology since then to make DVDs and Blu-ray discs feasible.

However, I noticed that, of all of the reviews of expensive optical-disc transports I perused, none include measurements, probably because measurements would prove that they ultimately aren't any more accurate than any cheap optical drive.  Instead, they say that the supposed audible superiority is due to mysterious factors.  This has been the standard line for years, and there has been no organized attempt to identify these mysterious factors, although the old bugaboo, jitter, is usually mentioned, but without showing how it effects the data.  As long as jitter isn't so bad that it causes data errors, then it doesn't matter. However, it is critical to minimize jitter at the DAC's clock inputs, because at that point, it becomes part of the analog output.

Blinded by audio hucksters

Now that I've examined the issue of errors from optical-disc drives more closely, and realized that I was wrong on the issue for quite a while, mainly because I fell prey to BS intended to sell something, such as audio streaming systems or Bedini Clarifiers (which help on some machines by reducing the amount of work done by the laser servo, which can affect the audio stage via the power supply unless isolated).  I realized that I was wrong when I stumbled onto an alternative explanation that makes sense, so that my mind was opened to evidence that CD error correction is indeed amazingly good.

Hamas betrays its loyalty to chaos


Feb 24 (Reuters) - Leaders of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas turned publicly against their long-time ally President Bashar al-Assad of Syria on Friday, endorsing the revolt aimed at overthrowing his dynastic rule.
from Hamas ditches Assad, backs Syrian revolt

For the truth about Hamas as a puppet of "Israel," go to EIR's website and search for "Hamas" (without quotation marks). The first three articles listed in the search results prove that Hamas was created by Israel during Sharon's reign of terror, to ensure that there would never be peace between "Israel" and the Palestinians.  Now, Hamas is showing its true character as a British tool for causing chaos. Note that in this case, it is allied with "Israel," just as Obama is allied with "Al Qaeda," which are all-purpose British imperial "Islamic militants."

A correction on correction

Rev A (see Notes)

Because I ran into some evidence that seems to disprove my assumption that the optical-disc correction system is far from perfect, I looked into the issue some more, and found The Numerically-Identical CD Mystery: A Study in Perception versus Measurement, which indicates that the problems which I was attributing to poor "on the fly" error correction are more likely caused by perturbations in the disc-player's power supply as the laser-servo mechanisms work to keep the laser focused on the right track.  These perturbations then subtly modulate the output signal, producing effects which critical listeners hear.  The study indicates that this problem is not noticed in "two box" players, which makes sense.  It would also explain the lack of such effects in computer audio systems with well-designed separate DACs, and in systems in which flash memory is the source.

So, this would indicate that for the ultimate fidelity at a reasonable price, SACDs are the way to go, but that the optical drive's power supplies need to be completely isolated from the rest of the power supplies.  It also undermines the case for spending thousands of dollars on a precision transport.

As evidence that transports don't actually make a difference,  unless their jitter is so bad that it causes bit errors (although eliminating as much jitter as possible is critical at the DAC clock inputs), I cite an experiment  in which an audiophile compared a dirt cheap CD player with digital outputs, used as a transport, with his supposedly highly superior Arcam transport.  He indicates that he heard no difference.

Commercial audio reviewers have a vested interest in claiming that transports sound different, and this is that their job is to sell as much expensive gear as possible to rich people.  This fixation on transports is a holdover from analog turntables, which do indeed generally sound better as price increases, at least at this point in their development.  It's not unusual for wealthy audiophiles to spend $10K-20K on a turntable system, and the most expensive is in the neighborhood of $300K. They might even sound better than a $1500 SACD player playing a recording made with a Grimm AD-1 analog-to-DSD converter.

Recent reports on IAEA's dealings with Iran shown to be British propaganda


I've been waiting for Gareth Porter, who for years has been closely following the IAEA's dealings with Iran, to weigh in on the latest reports which imply that Iran is hiding something.  Today, I found that he has (here), and that his latest article essentially exposes the British empire's desperation to start a war. In a nutshell, all they have is baseless suspicions.  The Mossad has evidently ginned up another fake "leaked research document" which supposedly proves that Iran is working on nukes, and Iran's "refusal" to allow a certain facility to be re-inspected (for no good reason) is actually just an attempt to get the IAEA to stop insinuating that Iran is working on nuclear weapons in exchange for allowing the re-inspection.

The same day that Porter's article came out, the IAEA came out with new insinuations that the progress on Iran's nuclear energy program can only mean one thing: that it's working on nuclear weapons.  So, it's clear to me that the IAEA, like other divisions of the British empire, has apparently long cultivated an image of objectivity, waiting for this moment to stampede the world into "Armageddon."

Obama: A solution for everything, eventually

Drone attack on the White House?


I would point to one very important thing. The beginning of this week we have Zawahiri the likely MI6 double agent who runs al-Qaeda, calling on all the fighters in Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and everywhere else to come into Syria and wage war against Assad.
And we had the US intelligence, James Clapper yesterday in the Congress acknowledging that al-Qaeda, these terrorists; these killers are an integral part of the Syrian opposition.
And nevertheless the US pushed through that resolution saying that the Syrian army and the Syrian police, the lawfully constituted forces of that government, they have to pull out of cities like Homs and they have to turn that over to these foreign fighters, renegades, deserters and al-Qaeda.
So basically they are saying Homs is better off under al-Qaeda than it is under Assad and that is just an obscene, a monstrosity. It shows you how degraded these imperialists have become as they attempt to pursue this process of destabilization.

This just goes to show how stupid they think we are.  We're supposed to think "Now that you mention it, it HAS been getting warmer lately. Global warming must be real after all, so let the decarbonators dictate policy."  Wait until the Arctic oscillation turns against this hemisphere in some future winter as global cooling sets in. Those snowblowers, probably purchased at a discount due to the relative lack of snow this year, will come in very handy.

Stanford Institute also liberally spread BS

Rev A (see Notes)

Further study of EIR's special report entitled The Aquarian Conspiracy’s Road to Orwell’s 1984 (go here , scroll down) led me to the conclusion that the Stanford Prison Experiment, or at least what the public was told about it, was one of the many varieties of BS purveyed by the Stanford Institute.  The trigger for this conclusion was the section written by LaRouche, entitled The Difference Between Their Science and Ours, in which he mentions that there is nothing new about the teachings associated with the "Aquarian Conspiracy," but that it was just a variation on an ancient theme by the "gods of Olympus" (which he implies are black magicians), i.e. that of filling mankind's heads with false beliefs in order to manipulate them.  This has become more difficult as mankind's consciousness has progressed, so the Devil and his agents have had to work harder at it.

I would also add pod people of various sorts, infused with Satanic intelligence and anti-human drive, to this group of top-level deceivers. The Spirits of Darkness also strive to insinuate false beliefs into our minds, and to temporarily take possession of weak individuals, such as, I suspect, Jared Loughner.  (His insane grudge against Giffords might have been an example of how the Spirits of Darkness goad people. The wild day or so leading up to his rampage, which killed and injured many others against whom he had no such grudge, might have been the result of a last-minute "surge" of will-impulses which bypassed Loughner's human instincts, effectively taking possession of him.)

Another of its varieties of BS is its study entitled Changing Images of Man, the basis for which is the pathetic assertion that mankind's behavior throughout its existence is determined by its BELIEFS about itself, i.e., its self-image, when in fact mankind's rational nature is based on its current soul-configuration, which is the product of unimaginable eons of development over the course of four incarnations of our solar system. [1] Before that, our behavior was dictated by pressures from society, and/or by the gods, especially Jehovah, who acted as a sort of "group soul" during the sentient-soul epoch.

Stanford's "study" then lamely claims that the image of man as rational and creative has had undesirable effects (conveniently forgetting the influence of the oligarchy), and that this image therefore has to be replaced with images from past epochs.  This image-change isn't the same as their ultimate goal, which is similar to that which was done to Jose Padilla, but just some lies about our nature to allow them to manipulate us as they wish.  Their gradual destruction of civilization, combined with a perpetual reign of terror ("war on terror), which includes the sheer terror of knowing that you could be obliterated out of the blue at any moment by a missile fired from a drone "by mistake," is more directly connected with their ultimate goal of driving the human spirit out of the world.  Perhaps there will be no utter destruction and re-creation, but just a gradual descent into hell.

So, although the Stanford prison experiment included elements of "enhanced interrogation," an explicit goal of which is "learned helplessness," a.k.a. "obliteration of the self," I believe it was associated in the public's mind with Stanford Institute as a HINT of its source (Satanism) and ultimate goals.  It appears that most of what EIR's study associates with the Aquarian Conspiracy is just more Satanic BS intended to confuse us and make us easier to manipulate.

Notes
Rev A: Added Note 1

[1] For an idea of what the Stanford Institute considers to be a more appropriate "image" (i.e. consciousness) for mankind, refer to the p 26, which is in the Stanford Institute's 'Images of Man' section. There, the report states that Stanford's "Images of Man" claims to have identified several beliefs which determined the nature of man over the last 250,000 years, and certain aspects of them which would be more suitable than the one which has supposedly caused all modern problems, i.e. the image of man as rational and creative.  Not surprisingly, they decided that we need to believe ourselves into becoming more like we were in feudalism's heyday, i.e. blissfully ignorant, superstitious peasants.

Beliefs obviously do affect behavior, but they don't change the fundamental underlying form of consciousness which allows us to HAVE images and manipulate them in our minds. In previous evolutionary epochs associated with earlier forms of consciousness, mankind did not have this ability.  It is absurd to claim that we can get rid of our current form of consciousness by making use of it.  The masters of the universe probably realize this, and that they will have to obliterate our minds and replace them with artificial intelligence.  (I noted in the introductory section of EIR's report that Marilyn Ferguson, the author of The Aquarian Conspiracy, published a magazine called The Mind/Spirit Bulletin before writing her book.  I doubt that she would admit that driving the mind/spirit OUT OF US was her goal.)  So, it seems that they want us to believe that we can believe ourselves into a supposedly superior form of consciousness, but that they are hiding the truth about how they intend to bring about this change, while dropping hints of what's involved under our noses in the form of the Stanford prison experiment.

Ahmadinejad, "Apocalyptic prophecy fulfiller," a.k.a. Promise Keeper


Iranian President Mahmoud’s Ahmadinejad’s mystical pre-occupation with the coming of a Shiite Islamic messiah figure – the Mahdi – is raising concerns that a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic could trigger the kind of global conflagration he envisions will set the stage for the end of the world.
While Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been making headlines lately by questioning whether the Holocaust actually happened, by suggesting Israel should be moved to Europe and by demanding the Jewish state be wiped off the face of the earth, his apocalyptic religious zealotry has received less attention.
from Iran Leader's Messianic End-Times Mission
Kelley stresses he still thinks Iran has a lot to explain:
I should be clear: Iran deserves tough scrutiny. It claims to have given up its nuclear-weapons ambitions, yet repeatedly acts as if it has something to hide. 
from Former IAEA official questions Iran evidence
And to make matters worse, Iran intervened in a dispute between Russia and Georgia over oil and gas supplies, by announcing, on the eve of the meetings of the five Security Council permanent members, that they would guarantee Georgia's energy supplies. Russian President Vladimir Putin read the Iranian action as a slap in the face to Moscow, and as a clear signal that Iran was not prepared to reach a deal on the nuclear enrichment and reprocessing protocol.
These actions by the Khamenei-Ahmadinejad leadership in Tehran merely served to demonstrate that they are nothing but half-witted pawns in the greater British game—like the Shultz-steered Cheney crowd in Washington.
from Iran Showdown Is the Fuse for a Global Monetary Bomb

It seems to me that Iran, which according to LaRouchePAC is involved in "intense factional fighting," is intentionally creating suspicions that it is working on nuclear weapons, just as Saddam Hussein gave the neo-cons reasons to suspect that he was hiding something because he assumed that fear of WMD would prevent an invasion.  In Iran's case, it seems that there's a "Fundy" faction that's following an "Apocalyptic" script which I suspect can be traced back to London or Venice.

What was the Stanford Prison Experiment, really?



Out of the blue, I became interested in the Stanford prison experiment, which Wikipedia introduces here as follows  :
The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted from August 14–20, 1971 by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University.[1] IT WAS FUNDED BY A GRANT FROM THE US OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH [2] and was of interest to both the US Navy and Marine Corps in order to determine the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners. [emphasis added]

I took a brief look at it, and not surprisingly concluded that it was not what we were told it was.  It appears to me to have been mainly intended as a hint that Stanford was a source of much of the research that went into designing various techniques for what Orwell described as "the obliteration of the self" which are typically employed in prison settings, such as in the "war on terror," which is partly a war on the very spirit of mankind. The students chosen as guards, I suspect, were members of organized Satanism, working on their "superman/wizard" (pod) degree, which is one of the best majors to assure employment in present-day society, which is essentially a prison run by organized Satanism.  The experiment concluded that their sadism reflected man's capacity for cruelty, but if the guards were Satanists, then it just reflects the nature of Satanism. I recalled that Stanford is a key center for Satanism, and that EIR has done quite a lot of research into the various "New Age" (Satanism-front) initiatives undertaken by Stanford. A search of EIR's database quickly turned up a major report from 1980 (go here, scroll down to find links to its various sections), which has evidently been added since I created The Campaigner Unbound website.  Otherwise, I would have found it at the time and included a link to it on that site.

Another expert claims CD-ripping improves sound quality

Rev A (seen notes)

Additional searching to confirm Linn Hi Fi's statement that ripping CDs to computer memory improves the sound quality has so far turned up a lot of noise (i.e. ignoramuses babbling and Satanists practicing the art of deception in echo chambers knows as forums) and very little signal, the little bit of signal being a 2005 Postive Feedback article by Steve Nugent, a former electrical engineer and president of Empirical Audio (which has a page on computer audio).  The article goes into considerable detail about jitter, which is one of the sources of error involved in reading data from optical discs.

The article concludes by stating "Computer-driven audio is adding new life to the CD format, providing new methods to get even more performance from CD tracks. Those that have discovered the performance and ergonomics advantages of this new technology have found new joy in their music listening." In other words, on-the-fly error-correction of optical-disc players is not perfect, and the resulting errors are detrimental to sound quality.

Eliminating optical discs from the playback-chain is probably one of the major advances in digital audio since oversampling and the eventual transition to DVDs and SACDs, which made oversampling obsolete.  The main problem with oversampling, or interpolation, is trying to mathematically create high-res data using 16-bit data and formulas based on compromises. The result was a residue of artificiality which could not be eliminated because of the errors contained in the input data.

The idea behind interpolation is to increase the effective sampling rate at the output of the DAC, and make it possible to filter out undesirable high frequencies produced by sampling, without using steep filters which cause phase distortion. (Phase distortion causes the various harmonics of complex signals to become misaligned in time.) The earliest digital sounded "smeared" and lacked a sense of space because it used steep filters.  (When I saw the phase characteristics of the input filters of the earliest digital recorders, back in the late 70's, I remarked that they would cause problems, and was ridiculed by someone who had been assured by Sony that their product was perfect. We now know that Sony's "perfect sound forever" was half-baked, to put it mildly.)

The main problem is now piracy, and the recording industry has adopted various measures to combat it, including the use of certain secret "watermarking" techniques.

Both the US and "Israel" are essentially puppets of the British empire, and both will follow London's orders, despite the supposed personality conflicts between Obama, Sarkozy, and Netanyahu.  It's possible that Israel has been secretly ordered to attack Iran, and that Britain and the US are pretending to wish that it wouldn't in order to hide this relationship, only to be "forced" to defend Israel when Iran retaliates.  If we really wanted to prevent Israel from invading, would we give it bunker busters and tell the world that we're joined at the hip?

But then, perhaps we're just ratcheting up tensions to "explain" the rising gas prices, which are probably due to some combination of Bernanke's money-pumping, speculators, and the desire to sell more fuel-efficient cars so that Obama can tout the "recovery" in this election year. Furthermore, Tarpley has indicated that a "Wall Street Faction Seeks Closure of Hormuz to Stave Off Dollar Collapse."  So, I'm not going to make any near-term predictions, although LaRouche has indicated that London is desperate for war because its financial system won't last much longer.

"The Borg" as a hint Satanism's darkest secret


The Borg manifest as cybernetically-enhanced humanoid drones of multiple species, organized as an interconnected collective, the decisions of which are made by a hive mind, linked by subspace radio frequencies. The Borg inhabit a vast region of space in the Delta Quadrant of the galaxy, possessing millions of vessels. They operate solely toward the fulfilling of one purpose: to "add the biological and technological distinctiveness of other species to [their] own" in pursuit of "perfection". The concept of perfection is the unifying idea at the core of the Borg. The pursuit of an unemotional, mechanical perfection is the Borg's only motivation. This is achieved through forced assimilation, a process which takes individuals and technology, enhancing and controlling them.
[...]
In the text commentary to the Collector's Edition of Star Trek: First Contact, Michael Okuda revealed that Star Trek: The Next Generation writers began to develop the idea of the Borg as early as the first season episode, "Conspiracy", which introduced a coercive, symbiotic life form that took over key Federation personnel. It was thwarted by the Enterprise crew and presumably never heard of again (the 'alien conspiracy' plotline itself was scrapped when it became clear that the concept was too grim for Star Trek's target audience). Plans to feature the Borg as an increasingly menacing threat were subsequently scrapped in favor of a more subtle introduction....
from Wikipedia's "Borg (Star Trek)" entry

As a result of my periodic encounters with organized Satanism in the form of "flash mobs" which are clearly organized to demonstrate its omniscience and omnipotence, I've come to think of it as "the Borg." (Note that "The Borg" just happens to convert to 33 42, i.e. 6 6, and that "Delta Quadrant," their supposed region of space, just happens to convert to 42 96, i.e. 6 66.)  I can't be certain of the mechanism used to coordinate these activities, because only those involved would be privy to such information, but sometimes it seems to me like they're spiritually controlled like puppets, because of how quickly they adapt to changing situations, and how inhumanly relentless they are, as if they have no greater purpose than to act as appendages of a "hive mind."

"Person of Interest" as a hint of organized Satanism's pervasive surveillance


Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the US


If you believe the premise of the TV show Person of Interest, there would have to be video cameras watching every square foot of at least New York City from a few angles, which is absurd.  However, to me, it isn't so absurd to think that the cameras represent members of organized Satanism, and there might be a system monitoring our internet activity, and even spying on our thoughts by saving every keystroke to a secret area on the hard drive, and retrieving that data when we're connected to the internet.  Although the show alludes to pervasive surveillance (including secret searches of residences), it doesn't go so far as to mention the possibility that our every keystroke might be scrutinized by some NSA Thought Police program.  There are probably ways to avoid this, but chances are that sending unbreakable encrypted messages over the internet would just draw attention.  But if you do this, the messages would have to be encrypted before transferring them to an internet-connected computer, and even this might not be sufficient.  For example, the encryption program might be written and provided by the NSA.  I know that a certain free sticky-note program, and a certain free word processor, send their contents out over the internet periodically, if they're not prevented from doing so, such as by a firewall.

It's not as if I'm trying to undermine legitimate government surveillance activities.  "Our" government has proven that IT is the greatest force for evil on this planet, because it is powerful, and it has been subverted by the enemies of mankind, i.e. organized Satanism. Without the power of the US, the British empire would have been destroyed long ago.  So, I don't buy into the notion that all of this supposed snooping is intended to protect us.

Obama doesn't suffer from hypocrisy - he revels in it


On August 4, 2011, in the midst of his unconstitutional war against Libya, the treasonous British puppet President Barack Obama, issued National Study Directive #10, ordering the creation of "an Interagency Atrocities Prevention Board," to institutionalize mechanisms and procedures for unending, anti-Constitutional United States overseas wars in the name of "preventing genocide." 
from Add Another Atrocity to Obama's Impeachable Offenses

Actually, this is just another instance of his compulsive big lying.  What about the mass atrocity known as the "war on terror," or the atrocities being committed by his masters and projected on their next target, Assad? He really does think he's God, and that we're too stupid to see through his constant lies.  The British play on this belief, by giving him to impression that he has been accepted into the oligarchical fold, to set him against us, but when they're through with him, they'll drop him like a hot potato. He has been diagnosed as a malignant narcissist by experts, but there is a fine line between this condition and psychopathy, which is characterized by a lack of conscience, which Rudolf Steiner might classify as a lack of absorption of the Christ-impulse, a condition which facilitates possession in those who participate in Dionysian wild abandonment, which is typically found in the outermost circles of Satanism.

I've known narcissists, and it's as if any hint that they should care about others sends them into a rage. To them, they are the only ones that matter, and everyone else is a toy, and toys aren't supposed to have lives or minds of their own.  In the course of writing this blurb, I stumbled onto a page entitled Narcissism, Psychopathy, and Evil, which strikes me as unusually precise, written by a forensic psychologist.

The Energizer Bunny of Italy's "justice" system comes after Knox again


The family of Amanda Knox said today that efforts by Italian prosecutors to put her back in prison is "an example of the harassment" by prosecutors who are intent on prolonging "this terrible, painful incident."
Knox's family put out the statement after prosecutor Giovanni Galati filed a 112-page appeal seeking to throw out a court ruling that found Knox innocent of her roommate's murder and set her free after four years in an Italian prison.
Galati said he is "very convinced" that Knox and her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito killed Meredith Kercher....
from Amanda Knox's Family Slams 'Harassment' By Italian Prosecutor

Galati, who would be Mignini's puppet, waited until we forgot that there there is no evidence that either Knox or Sollecito was involved in the murder, that the persecution's case (which consisted of fantasies, false testimony, and fabricated "evidence") was all but exposed as a pathetic frame-up, and that the very notion that they would have been involved is insane.  Then, he simply reasserted that he REALLY, REALLY BELIEVES that she did it.  Well, SO WHAT?  He can believe all he wants, but THAT IS NOT EVIDENCE.

This is also intended to torment Knox over her decision to return to Italy to defend her parents against a charge that any court not controlled by organized Satanism would have dismissed.  I don't know why her parents don't force the Italian government to extradite them.  It might decide that the charges should have been dropped.  If it doesn't, then the US government would have to get involved, in an election year, and go on record as supporting the insanity of the Italian government.  If the Italian government tries to use the CIA's rendition of an Islamic cleric from Italy to pressure the US government, then Knox's lawyers could cite it as evidence that they are just trying to get back at the CIA through Knox. Furthermore, in these times of tight budgets, making things too expensive might be all it takes to force the government to decide it's not worth it.

Our real government trots out its "respectable" members to demand Syrian invasion


For those of you who consider my statements in the previous post, regarding the existence of a secret fascist/Satanic government behind our apparent government, to have been unfounded, consider the following:
[The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies] today issued an open letter to Barack Obama, demanding he order an "immediate" U.S. intervention into Syria, in the name of "humanitarian" concerns.
from British Foot-Soldiers Demand Immediate Intervention into Syria

These are, I gather, representatives of our secret government. They evidently decided to exclude Dick, the Lord of the Dark Side from their petition, because he is too closely identified with the "war" in Iraq and Afghanistan. But his wife/puppeteer, who is closely allied with The Fabian Society (33 33 96, i.e. 6 6 6) which includes those most responsible for lying us into that disaster, is on the list. Bill Kristol is also on the list, and how can anyone forget how glibly he lied us into Iraq?  I'm surprised that anyone takes him seriously anymore, but I guess W.C. Fields was right.

The FBI waves the truth under our noses again


On Friday, Amine El Khalifi's goal to detonate the vest at the Capitol ended with his arrest in an FBI sting, said U.S. authorities who had been monitoring him for nearly a year. Undercover operatives — not an al-Qaida representative as he believed — gave him a gun and explosives that didn't work, according to an affidavit. He had those items with him when he was taken into custody at a parking garage near the Capitol, a counterterrorism official said.
from Authorities: Terror suspect planned suicide bomb

The moral of this story is that nobody can run a successful terror operation without the cooperation of the FBI. [1] Without them providing him with fake weapons, he would have realized that a significant DIY terror operation is not feasible, and he would have ended up just wishing he could do it, which isn't a crime, unless thoughts are now crimes.

Meanwhile, NATO routinely drops bombs on innocent civilians, and all they have to say is "oops, sorry."  Those responsible aren't even identified (because it would put these great warriors in DANGER, and we can't have that), much less sweated or charged with a war crime.  They're in for a shock when they slither off their mortal coil, however.  "What - Satan lied to ME?!  But he told me that I'm SPECIAL!" (What he meant was "psychopath," i.e. just his type of guy. There's nothing worse that a gang of psychopaths who make and "enforce" the laws.)

Notes

[1] By "FBI," I mean the REAL FBI, which is a division of our REAL, fascist/Satanic government, which just recently destroyed Libya and is now raping Syria in the guise of "freedom fighters." Those in the outer circles of the FBI might have run up against the core group once in a while, and wondered about their real agenda.

British mouthpieces set stage for false-flag black ops to be blamed on Iran


The British continue promulgating disinformation, making the absurd claim that Iran is planning a joint terror operation with the Saudi-financed al-Qaeda.
from British Spread More Iran Disinformation

To anyone who realizes that Al Qaeda is essentially a patsy for terrorism committed by black-ops-type special forces, perhaps privatized, the meaning of this warning is clear: the British empire is about to launch a terrorism spree which naturally will be blamed on their "Al Qaeda" patsies (whom we supposedly largely eliminated, at least when it serves their purposes to say so), but this time supposedly in alliance with Iran.  As the article points out, the notion of an AQ-Iran alliance is utterly insane, but the British empire is desperate to start a nuclear war, and it's pulling out all the stops.  Until recently, they've been more careful in order to maintain their credibility, to "keep their powder dry" for this final push for "Armageddon."

Similarly, the Taliban, or at least the hard core Taliban, are also patsies for the British empire, or perhaps an "Islamic" branch of British terrorism which takes the blame for all British terrorism.  As evidence of this, see British Kill Afghan Journalist Who Exposed Their Double Game in Afghanistan.  This hard core, I surmise, serves partly as a recruitment office for Afghans who have been provoked into becoming cannon-fodder, such as suicide bombers or IED-planters.

The final word on optical-music-disc read errors


After stating in a previous entry that "ripped" CDs sound better than CDs played on CD players, I realized that some people might want more evidence that a statement to that effect on the internet.  So, I decided to find a more authoritative source to back me up, and for the most part found the usual blind-leading-the-blind in echo chambers, and claims that CD (etc.) error correction is perfect, until I went to Linn Hi Fi's expert, no-BS website.  There, on their introduction to Linn DS page (here), I found the following statement:
Why Streaming Sounds Better
There’s a very good reason why we stopped making CD players. We discovered that streaming the music from the network sounds better than using a disc. CD players suffer from read errors and the moving parts interfere with the sound quality. If you rip, or import your music from a compact disc onto a hard drive, and play it through a Linn DS player, you get more of the music and none of the imperfections. With no moving parts and no reliance on discs, which scratch, or degrade over time, your music sounds brilliant forever. 
So, Linn's golden-eared audiophiles say it sounds better, and that's good enough for me. The ear is the most sensitive instrument, and science eventually vindicates what audiophiles hear. (The Linn Sondek turntable developer's unofficial motto was "shut up and listen!" It took him ten years to develop a phono preamp that satisfied him, but when he did, it was a revelation.) So, even if there are no measurements to prove that ripping improves the sound of a CD, Linn says it does, and you can take that to the research lab.

Honduras "Branch Davidian" redux

Still bringing it onto the American foot soldier


And just over a week ago, eight young shepherds, all but one under 14 years of age, lit a fire for warmth on the snowy Afghan mountainside in Kapisa province, where they were helping support their families by grazing sheep. French troops saw the fire and acted on faulty information, and the boys were all killed in two successive NATO airstrikes. The usual denunciations from local authorities, and Western apologies, followed.
from Cold, Cold Hearts
British Air Commodore Mike Wigston told a news conference that there was no doubt that eight young men were killed in the bombing raid.
He expressed his condolences over the deaths, saying they were not targeted because they were necessarily Taliban or insurgents, but because they appeared a threat to Afghan and French troops operating in the area.
[...]
"These were young Afghans. They were adult sized, athletic, strong, walking perfectly in the valley. I have no doubt that they were carrying weapons," Wigston told reporters. [They were evidently out in the open, making no efforts to conceal themselves. Were the "weapons" pieces of firewood?]
It was "not the first time that children have been seen carrying weapons" and it was "not unusual for young males of this age to hold weapons".  [If it's common, why did they assume that they were a threat?]
He described the area in Kapisa as "dangerous" and a place of "enmity between the villages". [So, wouldn't this explain why they were carrying rifles, if they were?]
He disputed an account from Afghan investigators saying that local Afghan security forces did not back the operation, saying "there's no doubt that there was full cooperation of the Kapisa police."
[...]
At the time, Kapisa district police chief Abdul Hamid Erkin told AFP that seven children and a mentally-handicapped 20-year-old were killed.
[...]
Safi said the children had gathered to start a fire about 600 metres west of a village where troops were operating when "all of a sudden a plane dropped one bomb in first round and another bomb later".  [But they gathered "menacingly" in the open, with FIREWOOD! So, why only one bomber?  This was a job for an entire squadron of bombers!]
He said French commanders "claimed that the target was a group of Taliban facilitators, but we checked the area and there were no Taliban".  [Then the blame was passed onto some anonymous "informant."]
from Afghan teens were armed when bombed: NATO

Here's what I think:  The IED-planting season is upon us, and Britain and France are out to fan the flames of hatred for mainly American soldiers, who will now be dispatched on IED patrol to be blown up.

Digital downloads and Armageddon


My major remaining objection to digital audio, once high-resolution recordings became available, was based on the error-prone process of reading data from optical discs. (If you think that error correction on the fly is perfect, why then the big deal over "ripping" CDs to hard drives without errors?)  I expressed a preference for DSD over PCM because DSD is less sensitive to errors.  However, now that digital audio downloads via the internet are widely available, and because the internet is capable of providing bit-perfect copies, my objection to PCM as a source is no longer valid.

So, digital audio has for all practical purposes been perfected in the form of high-resolution recordings downloaded over the internet.  In my opinion, analog holdouts are in it for the money.  There's a lot of money to be made trying to get all the music off of LPs.  For example, Goldmund makes a $300K turntable which has a preamp in the headshell and a 500-pound stand.  I'd like to see how it compares to an iPod and a good DAC playing an "equivalent" high-res recording in a double-blind listening test.

While working in Burr-Brown's data-converter design group in the late 1970's (when 16-bit linearity was the holy grail), I joked that digital audio would be perfected just before the "end of the world," based on the assumption that man is not meant to have "perfect sound forever."  Well, digital audio has been essentially perfected, and lo and behold, the British empire and its media are pulling out all the stops to instigate "Armageddon." If only we had learned to live with LPs, 15 bits, and 20KHz brick-wall filters, the British empire would have magically gone away, and we could have had NAWAPA, maglev, colonies on other planets, and a lot more orchestras and live performances.  Damn!

The major media's new, thinly-veiled alliance with Al Qaeda


Within hours after a McClatchy News story reported that US intelligence officials believe that Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) was behind a series of suicide bombings that have taken place inside Syria, Iraqi officials confirmed that Iraq-based militants are indeed making their way from northern Iraq into Syria.
from More Evidence of the British-Saudi-Al-Qaeda 9/11 Coalition Against Syria

However, if all you know about what's happening in Syria is based on the major media's shouting-points, the fact that it and the rest of the British empire have realigned themselves with Al Qaeda for purposes of "regime change" (chaos) in Syria is lost in the get-Assad hysteria, which has replaced the "get rid of nuclear power" hysteria for the moment.  Never mind the fact that "liberating" Libya has had disastrous results - the British empire and its mouthpiece is out for world war, and they'll do and say whatever they have to do and say to get it.

Also of interest is that Al Qaeda is apparently operating out of Iraq with impunity.  Didn't we invade Afghanistan precisely because Al Qaeda was using it as a haven?  Now, after a decade of war in Iraq, we suddenly don't care whether Al Qaeda operates freely there.  That's because they actually work for us, and in the destroy-Iraq phase of the war on civilization, they supposedly ran around committing terrorism there, providing us with an excuse to bomb the place back to the stone age.  Now Al Qaeda is supposedly helping Syrians to establish democracy, when until recently they've been trying to establish Sharia law globally.  But the implicit alliance between Al Qaeda, the US government, and the major media just isn't mentioned.

Lives lost in Afghan war have not been wasted


"How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding?" Davis boldly asks in an article summarizing his views in The Armed Forces Journal.
from The Afghanistan Report the Pentagon Doesn't Want You to Read

As I keep reminding people, the "war" must be achieving its actual purposes, or it would have been called off by now.  From my perspective, it's a combination of a war on civilization and mankind, and advanced Satanism on a vast scale.  From the perspective of higher beings, it probably serves some mysterious purposes related to human destiny, making it a necessary evil.

So, the lives lost have not been wasted, although it is sad from a human perspective to see so many promising lives lost  while the "devils" running the war escape unscathed and go on to live lives based on imitating beer commercials, thanks to their master's control over the "democratic free trade" system and their ability to enjoy watching humans suffer.

MSM is paving the way for a Libyan-style "liberation" of Syria


The global mainstream media is feverishly creating a poster child for the planned invasion of Syria, by affording a British citizen who claims to be a Syrian “activist” endless air time during which he constantly begs for a U.S., Israeli or NATO-backed bombing campaign to depose President Bashar Assad.
from Global Media Promotes Syrian “Activist” Begging For Military Invasion

The same media is hiding the consequences of the Libyan "liberation," which was actually a war on Libya's infrastructure, with the intent of turning Libya into another chaotic playground for organized Satanism.  Some of its large stockpile of military weapons has supposedly ended up in the hands of independent terrorists, but anyone with a clue knows that there is no such thing as a significant independent terrorist.  So don't expect the Establishment to recover the weapons that have ended up in their pet terrorists' hands.

Details on identities of "rebels" in Syria (Rev A)


In January, Michel Chossudovsky reported British media confirming UK/CIA/MI6 operatives in Syria training anti-Assad Western-backed insurgents. They’re also supplying them with arms, ammunition, and equipment.
from NATO’s “Secret War” on Syria: Replicating the Libya Model

As revealing as this article is, it closes by stating that the goal is regional dominance, although without indicating that the purpose of this dominance is ultimately the "spontaneous" destruction of civilization and mankind - a sort of "unintended consequence of democratic free trade."  Look at what we've done to Iraq in the name of "fighting terrorism," and now it's coming out that there has been no real progress in Afghanistan either, after spending THOUSANDS OF BILLIONS of dollars on Cheney's "cakewalk."

Like I said years ago, the "war on terror" is a combination of a war on civilization and advanced Satanism on a vast scale, with most of our military among the victims.  "Islamic terrorists" appear when and where needed in order to "justify" destruction.  Most recently, they've donned their "Syrian freedom fighter" hats (as front-men for British dirty ops, as usual), and in this case, the Syrian government is the villain. When Syria's destroyed, the "uprising" will dissipate and the "war on terror" will move elsewhere, or become a world war with Russia and China.

Notes
Rev A - Indicated that serving as front-men for British dirty-ops is Al Qaeda's usual role.

Congress using AQ members in Syria while "waging war" on it elsewhere


Still, while we can’t prove that arms are flowing yet, officials have given us reason to believe such aid may be forthcoming. Rep. Steve Chabot (R – OH), the head of the House subcommittee on the Middle East, is openly calling for armament of the rebels.

Papademos pushes more of the poison "cure"


(Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos has told lawmakers to back a deeply unpopular international financial rescue in a vote Sunday or condemn the country to "uncontrolled economic chaos and social explosion."
from It's bailout or chaos, PM Papademos tells Greece

It's a trick choice - either one leads to economic collapse, although default on bogus debt, followed by the judicious creation of credit for infrastructure, would lead to a recovery.

Why don't they just say that they're going to kill us all, or most of us, that there's nothing we can do about it, and start dropping some nukes on select locations?  Well, for one thing, it has to look spontaneous if they intend to "fulfill prophecy," and perhaps they intend to con us into accepting some servant of Satan as the supposed physical return of Christ

Christ is not going to return physically in his incarnation as Jesus of Nazareth. For one thing, his physical body vaporized instantaneously in the tomb, producing the Shroud of Turin. Christ even said quite explicitly that his kingdom is not of this world, which seems to rule out setting up a kingdom on Earth. He has already descended into the etheric realm, and he appears to many people in different locations at once, as various ordinary people. (He has a unique mode of spiritual/physical manifestation, thus explaining his appearances to his disciples after his resurrection. This is how he could appear out of thin air, take on different appearances, and share meals with the Apostles, who recognized him through their clairvoyant abilities. The Book of Revelation is a description of a clairvoyant vision by St. John regarding the end of our solar system's present incarnation, a.k.a. the Apocalypse.)  As each of us obtains etheric vision (such as in a future incarnation), we will be able to perceive him, and this constitutes the Second Coming on a case-by-case basis.  The Devil/Anti-Christ and his minions, Satan and Lucifer, will do everything in their power to prevent this.

Obama "intends" to do something about Libya


In addition, the president expressed gratitude to Monti for Italy’s partnership in last year’s NATO campaign to remove Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.  Obama said he intends to work closely with Italy - Libya’s one-time colonial ruler - to help strengthen Libya’s transitional government.  
from Obama Applauds Italian Leader’s Economic Reforms

This is another of his smokescreen-statements. He's just saying that he plans to do something about the chaos in Libya to prevent us from recognizing that chaos and death were the goals all along.

Liberation, Obama-style


International human rights organizations and observers say the reality is infinitely darker, however. The prisons are being used as sites to wreak revenge against those who fought for former leader Muammar Gaddafi and also as bargaining chips in the struggle for who ultimately will hold power in Libya, they say.
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon first complained in November that thousands of detainees were being held in prisons run by former rebels without access to due legal process.
Since then, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have charged that torture of prisoners is widespread across the country.
from Libya fighters-turned-jailors face heat over prisons
TRIPOLI: Libya, the country that witnessed the Arab world's most sweeping revolution, is foundering.
The government of the interim Prime Minister, Abdel Rahim el-Keeb, is virtually paralysed by rivalries that have forced it to divide power along lines of regions and personalities, by unreachable expectations that Muammar Gaddafi's fall would bring prosperity and by powerlessness so marked the national army is treated like another of the many warring militias.

As a consolation prize, Emperor Nerobama will be air-dropping photos of himself wearing a big, beaming smile, so that Libyans can bask in the glow of his greatness as they die.

Syria: another chaos operation disguised as a democratic uprising


Despite vehement denials by Washington- London-Paris representatives at the UN Security Council last week, there are growing signs that what London and Doha are in the process of putting in place in Syria, is an exact replica of their covert and not-so-covert operations inside Libya.
from Qatari Special Forces Operating in Syria

The Syrian government is not attacking its own people - the cowardly serial killers who have been gunning down civilians in Syria are agents of the British empire, including Qatari and British special forces. This is what is known as a black operation, such as the demolition of the WTC, the JFK hit, the MLK hit and the RFK hit, because such operations don't officially occur, and will forever be denied by the various divisions of Mammon's global empire, including the US government and media. Such operations are just too dirty to admit, because doing so would expose the true nature of our actual government.  So, as usual, the blame is projected onto our actual government's next target, which in this case is the Syrian government.

Considering the media's capacity for deception in this sort of situation, I have to wonder whether my opinion on the Egyptian government, which is based on mass-media reports, is based on reality or another such utter fabrication.

Whose butts were really covered in Haditha-related trials?


One of the accused Marines, Sgt. Frank Wuterich, gave his account of the Haditha killings in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” including an admission that his squad tossed a grenade into one of the residences without knowing who was inside.
“Frank, help me understand,” asked interviewer Scott Pelley. “You’re in a residence, how do you crack a door open and roll a grenade into a room?”
“At that point, you can’t hesitate to make a decision,” Wuterich answered. “Hesitation equals being killed, either yourself or your men.”
“But when you roll a grenade in a room through the crack in the door, that’s not positive identification, that’s taking a chance on anything that could be behind that door,” Pelley said.
“Well, that’s what we do. That’s how our training goes,” Wuterich said.
Four Marines were singled out for courts-martial over the Haditha killings though some legal analysts believe the case is collapsing because of loose “rules of engagement” that let U.S. troops kill Iraqis when a threat is detected.
from Bush's Free-Fire Zones

So, as I speculated in a previous post (here), it appears that "wars" such as those in Iaq and Afghanistan are set up partly to lead to precisely such situations, possibly in order to lead some soldiers from rage to possession. The frustrating nature of the war triggers rage, and the rules of engagement allow them to surrender to that rage, which is a recipe for possession. If anything would indicate such possession, it would be the act of knowingly killing defenseless children, which did occur in the course of the Haditha massacre. [1] However, I would have to know more about the individual soldiers involved to make such a judgment. I suppose it's possible to merely be so intent on revenge that killing children seems justified, although the rules of engagement should prohibit such conduct, and the "whispered" ones apparently don't.

Notes
[1]  The aforementioned previous post contains a quote from Rudolf Steiner regarding "Jupiter man" Satanic possession which doesn't make it clear whether the resulting possession is persistent. However, Steiner elsewhere indicates that it is persistent, and that such puppets can be found, for example, performing diabolical medical research.  Mengele comes to mind.

Hints of the Invisible Hand behind the Knox ordeal


Seattle’s local media did something unprecedented the day Amanda arrived home, after an initial interview they told the family they were leaving to honor the request for privacy and then to the amazement of the national and international media they packed up the trucks and left. The US media followed suit the next day and the Italians left a week later. The British have never left and they are paying the paparazzi to follow Amanda and Raffaele. What little press you’ve seen in the past few months has all been yellow journalism.
[...]
The American Embassy in Rome should have seen a Red Flag when Amanda became the second American targeted by Perugia’s Public Minister Giuliano Mignini himself in an 18-month period. Several Protests should have been filed on Amanda’s behalf with the State Department; so far we have not found any, only a few threadbare dispatches, none mentioning FAM laws broken by the Perugians.
from Amanda Knox: The Mask and Mantle

I've previously written that I suspect that one of the motives behind Amanda Knox's ordeal was to serve as a distraction from our governments' treason in service of the British empire, and the above excerpts support this position, because both the Daily Mail and the State Department are British imperial tools.  The Daily Mail is one of the most unabashed outlets of blatant fabrications on the planet, and spying on Knox is partly intended as a form of SRA, by making her feel as if she's still in prison ("Big Brother is watching you"). The current Secretary of State is pushing the British line against Syria, although I don't know her motive.

If Knox's ordeal was intended to serve as a distraction by virtually putting us too in some hellish Italian prison through media coverage of her ordeal, it worked like a charm.  A lot of people were utterly preoccupied with her plight for four years.

Fortunately, I managed to avoid being distracted, and waited until Mignini had stuck his neck all the way out before exposing him for the Satanic monster he is.  Note how the distraction ended just in time for what could be the end-phase of civilization, i.e. the outbreak of thermonuclear world war, the ultimate motive of which would be to allow the Mt. Pelerin Society, (i.e. Satan's Venetian oligarchy's hoary feudalistic "free market" hand reaching out from the grave, waving a copy of The Road to Serfdom by arch-cynic Friedrich von Hayek) to save face.  Actually, I'm being facetious, because there will be no reason to save its face when civilization is instantly plunged into a dark age, thus "explaining" what happened to "the recovery."

Egyptian police up to their old tricks


Twin brothers who play for the football team Al-Masry, whose match against a rival team in Egypt ended in a massacre, claim the violence was encouraged by the police with the backing of the army.
from Egyptian police incited massacre at stadium, say angry footballers

This is entirely consistent with my previous conclusion (here) that the real Egyptian government is a division of organized Satanism (Mubarak is their fall guy), and that Cairo is the "Mecca" of the Cult of Isis, which is the "mother" of organized Satanism.  In this case, the police were apparently trying to fan the flames of unrest, as part of their chaos agenda, and to provide them with more opportunities to beat people up, lock them up, and subject them to "interrogation" (torture sprinkled with inane questions), for purposes of SRA.  Again, it's possible that those conducting the "interrogations" are just some Satanists from anywhere on the planet, brought in for some quality SRA at some Egyptian peasant's expense.

Signs of 8th Sphere agenda contained in "lucid dreaming" guidance


While trolling the internet for the latest on Jared Loughner's status, I ran across an article (here) which contains a link to a page on "lucid dreaming," which states the following, among other things:
This technique is by far more difficult and may take some time and patience. The goal of this is to stay conscious while your body falls asleep."
[...]
3. What you might see is random flashing and streaks of color. Look carefully at this blackness. This is all the beginning of your brain's imagery (Hypnologic imagery) [HALLUCINATIONS]. You need to watch this imagery but do not focus hard, your vision needs to be relaxed, your eyelids should gently be closed not forced shut. Some solid objects and scenes should appear. [In other words, hallucinations of physical reality, which seems unlikely.]
[...]
6. This stage either happens or it doesn’t. Dream images will start to form. You can GO WITH THESE IMAGES AND ENTER a Lucid Dream. This takes a lot of hard work but it is well worth the effort.  [In other words, you hallucinate an alternate reality, and magically go live in it.  Right. This reeks of the 8th Sphere agenda's goal of cultivating escapism.]
The only problem with this is that if you're conscious, you can't dream.  Dreaming occurs when the the higher levels of the soul are separated from the physical and etheric bodies, which prevents normal consciousness from occurring.  Clairvoyants, however, can be conscious of the SPIRITUAL world when their astral body is separated from the physical body, but this is NOT A DREAM.  Dreams are symbolic "movies" created by the etheric body, out of its perceptions of certain aspects of the spiritual world, and its dim form of "consciousness."  So, whatever "lucid dreaming" is, it's not dreaming.

As far as I can tell, the described state is a fantasy, which is the goal of the 8th Sphere agenda - to get people to escape into fantasies.  Note that it includes the statement "it either occurs or it doesn't."  The point is that it's impossible to prove that something doesn't exist, so they can simply make these claims and send people on wild goose chases and waste a lot of their time trying to achieve what is in fact a fantasy, while actually cultivating a tendency to flee from Satan's soul-crushing world order into fantasies.

Another possibility is that it's intended to render them susceptible to the belief that the world is theirs to control  however they see fit, by virtue of being their dream, and ultimately to fleeting possession by the Spirits of Darkness, who are always on the lookout for useful, weak-minded suckers to use as puppets.  Jared Loughner's fixation on Giffords, which ultimately translated into the deaths and maiming of an entire crowd of people who had nothing to do with his insane grudge, has all the signs of being a case of the Spirits of Darkness "egging" him on to the point of getting into position to assassinate her, and then impelling him to launch into mass murder.  But we'll never know.

"Prophecy fulfiller" Santorum would blame US attack on itself on Iran


At a campaign stop in Missouri, Santorum told a crowd that a nuclear Iran would pose a direct threat, even to Missouri. “Once they have a nuclear weapon, let me assure you, you will not be safe, even here in Missouri,” he said.
from Santorum: Iran Would Nuke America

The reality of the "war on terror," somewhat oversimplified, is that of a reign of terror with a narration of a "war on terror" superimposed upon it.  Who brought down the WTC, after all? Who has been caught flying Taliban around Afghanistan in helicopters?  When the time is right, these same Satanic monsters won't hesitate to nuke some US city and point the finger at Iran.  THAT's why they're so insistent that Iran has nukes - they need us to believe that they do in order to "retaliate."

Was Santorum hinting that Missouri is one of the intended targets?

The fiction known as "lucid dreaming" (Rev A)

Rev A (see Notes)

Upon revisiting my effort to comprehend Jared Loughner's shooting rampage, I was reminded that he was obsessed with "lucid dreaming," which he sought to achieve via sleep deprivation. So, I did a little research and reflection on this topic, and concluded that it's another reality-garbling hoax by organized Satanism, which loves nothing better than to deceive well-intentioned truth-seekers with such synthetic "New Age" mumbo-jumbo.  The basic notion of "lucid dreaming" is that of consciously controlling dreams, which is ludicrous because dreams are the product of the etheric body, which is unconscious.

However, it appears that Loughner's concept of "lucid dreaming" was similar to the teachings of A Course In Miracles, which teaches that we are all gods, and that each of us lives isolated in our own universe which we create through some bizarre process which it describes as "dreaming," although it includes elements of illusion, guilt and insanity.  The physical universe IS an illusion, but one created by higher spiritual beings for our benefit.  Other people in this world are expressions of other human spirits (although some humans have been "hijacked" by Satanic spirits); they are not part of our dream.

ACIM is an excellent example of a LUCIFERIC teaching, because it tells us that we are more "God-like" than we are at this stage in our evolution.  This is the nature of the delusions which Lucifer feeds us. Satan, on the other hand, feeds us lies such as Darwinism (110), or The Big Bang (6 9 6), i.e. that the ultimate reality is some eternal particle. I wracked my brains over ACIM, trying to make sense of it, and ultimately dropped it and stumbled onto the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, which hit me like a bolt of lightning.  It helped me to get oriented more to reality, although there's more to it than I'll ever understand.

Most people are unconscious of the experiences of the astral body when it's outside the physical body, in the spiritual world.  With the right training and effort, people who are "evolutionarily ready" can develop clairvoyant abilities and become aware of these experiences, but it's generally not easy to do so. However, what they perceive isn't a dream (which consists of images from the physical world, combined without regard to the laws of the physical world) but a reality which is higher than physical reality. As they advance, they attain greater powers of perception, and perceive higher levels of the spiritual world.

There is no spiritual world which resembles the physical world which we can manipulate like a puppeteer.  To me, this sounds like a combination of being half-asleep, and fantasy.

I have had VIVID dreams, but as with all my other dreams, they were just images or memories produced by my etheric body, which again is unconscious and cannot be used for consciously controlling the content of dreams.  Consciousness is a product of a combination of the spirit, the higher soul (astral body), and the physical body.  When we're asleep, this combination doesn't exist, because the spirit and the astral body are separate from the physical and etheric bodies.  

Ultimately, when trying to determine what caused Loughner to commit mass murder, one has to consider the sheer inhumanity of the act.  It was either an act of insanity (perhaps partially due to sleep deprivation and a belief that the world is just a dream), the result of being "egged on" and ultimately used as a puppet by the Spirits of Darkness, or both.  He supposedly had a grudge against Giffords, but this doesn't explain why he shot so many others.

Chief Vitamin D pusher is a "behavioral nutritionist" (Rev A)

Rev A (see Notes)
Tyrants don’t take to science easily. They always fight back. And the vitamin D council is doing so by inventing a new disease known as “Vitamin D Deficiency Syndrome,” or VDDS.
According to Dr. Cannell, VDDS exists for anyone with 25-D blood levels equal to or less than 25ng/ml who also have two or more of the following conditions: osteoporosis, heart disease, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, certain cancers, depression, chronic fatigue or chronic pain. And since sunshine won’t help you meet this artificial level, most of us are going to qualify as patients based on the faulty, 25-D blood test.
... Did you know that Cannell’s previous gig was as a psychiatrist in a hospital for the criminally insane? Now you do. Psychiatrists are master disease branders and drug pushers. It’s no surprise that once your diagnosed deficient by his standards, he’ll sell you his own “vitamin danger” as, “Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D.”
Truth be told, vitamin D2 and D3 are man-made drugs, suitable for rat poison, not vitamins. And the University of Colorado reminded the scientific community of this danger when they published, “In fact, baits containing large quantities of vitamin D are used very effectively as rodenticides (rat poison).”
[...]
Writing for the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism, scientists showed that vitamin D consumption, decreases parathyroid function and may depress bone turnover to some degree. Trevor Marshall, PhD, professor at Australia’s Murdoch University School of Biological Medicine and Biotechnology DEMONSTRATED THAT IT SUPPRESSES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, concluding that, “The comprehensive studies are just not showing that supplementary vitamin D makes people healthier.”
from Stinky Sulfur Award Warns about Unapproved "Vitamin D" Drug Disguised as Vitamin

(Unfortunately, this article includes a lot of salty language, but the author is one of the few experts telling the unvarnished truth about Vit D.)

So, it turns out that the Vitamin D Council (website) , which I once regarded as the definitive source of infomation on Vit D, and which pushes Vit D by the boatload, is run by what appears to be Reesian psychiatrists, whose mission is to implement the 8th Sphere agenda, and part of which is to cause as much suffering as possible without driving people to commit suicide.  When such creatures are in charge of economic policy, as in the early days of the Obama administration (and probably to this day, but from behind an impenetrable veil of secrecy), they're known as "behavioral economists," i.e. specialists in luring the world off an economic cliff.

At Gitmo, the "worst of the worst" (i.e. Crowley's "outcast and unfit," labeled "terrorists") are prevented from starving themselves to death by force-feeding them in a manner which is designed to increase their suffering.  The idea there is to apparently push suffering beyond the point where it drives people into committing suicide, so that their only "escape" is mental/spiritual.  The Devil's ultimate goal is to drive the human spirit literally out of the world, and into the 8th Sphere, a fake "Heaven" created by the forces of evil, characterized as a realm of pure fantasy without any connection to Creation.  Earth would then become an "animal planet," where humans would be reduced to mindless drones, apparently with "artificial intelligence" modules surgically implanted to make them useful as slaves to the black magicians and/or pod people who would rule the planet.  This is the danger of the current crisis.

The opportunity is to progress to the next stage of evolution, an advanced form of consciousness in which we would retain our ability to think while obtaining etheric perception.  This is why I'm somewhat fatalistic regarding the plans to depopulate the planet, while being so opposed to the Reesian agenda.  Then there's the necessity for a certain amount of suffering. If everything were handed to us on a silver platter, we would have no incentive to think sufficiently, and developing our ability to think is a major goal of the current phase of our evolution.  Without the irritation of a grain of sand, oysters wouldn't produce pearls.

One of the effects of Vit D3 consumption, according to the above-referenced article and sources quoted in my health-related blog (here) is to suppress the immune system.  It was a couple of weeks after I started taking large doses of D3 as recommended by the Vit D Council that I developed a fungal sinus infection, although taking potassium bicarbonate, as recommended by a couple of internet sources whom I considered to be trustworthy, probably contributed to it.

Fungal sinus infections are very difficult to eradicate, and apparently epidemic (also apparently disguised as allergies).  The medical establishment's lack of serious effort to provide treatments for this condition to the general public soon became apparent to me after going to my  primary care provider, who didn't order a culture but instead prescribed expensive broad-spectrum antibiotics, which would tend to exacerbate a fungal infection. When it became apparent that these weren't going to help, I realized that the infection was fungal in nature, and naively requested an antifungal drug.  So, my "caregiver" prescribed oral antifungal medication (Nystatin), which doesn't do a thing for sinus infections, and she would have known this.  In the interest of using it properly, I then did some research into it, and quickly discovered that it is useless for a sinus infection.  So, naturally I didn't take it and decided that seeking a cure through my "caregiver" was worse than useless.

There is a clinic, The Biamonte Center for Clinical Nutrition (website), which appears to have an effective treatment program (which requires the patient to abstain from certain vitamins, including D), although as with any medical treatment, there are no guarantees, and if the clinic or some lab involved in the process decides to sabotage the treatment and claim that some cases just don't respond, you're out of luck and a lot of money. Buyer beware.

There are indications that lufenuron is being pushed by organized Satanism (see for example Candida Away's "12 Hour Cure" [12 62 47, i.e. 74 47, i.e. 11 11] page, which features the usual blissfully happy masks, the ludicrous selling points, the "Satanic codes" and the bullet-proof disclaimers ), although there is that video in which someone claims to have been cured of candida by taking lufenuron (here).  He's either telling the truth, or one of the best liars on the planet.  Perhaps it helped him because his immune system is in good condition, whereas someone whose immune system is weaker, such as due to age or Vit D3 consumption, might not be so lucky.

Unfortunately, Lufenuron also causes lethargy, dullness, and disorientation which lasts a few weeks after the end of treatment (as I reported here), and this might be one of the reasons why organized Satanism is apparently pushing it.  However, IF it's effective at getting rid of a fungal overgrowth, and the prospective user can get by with reduced mental capacity, it might be the way to go.

But since I am not qualified to provide medical advice, I have to say that anyone considering the use of lufenuron should consult with a trustworthy medical expert, but as indicated by this entry, finding one isn't trivial.

Notes
Rev A: Added indication that mental effects of lufenuron are temporary
