Red Ice Radio - Brett Veinotte - Hour 1 - School Sucks: Intelligence & Education vs. Schooling

Synopsis: "Brett Veinotte has worked in education for the last 12 years, in a variety of capacities. After leaving classroom teaching in 2006, Brett began to work exclusively as a private tutor in the greater Boston area. In 2009, he began The School Sucks Podcast as an outlet for the lessons and experiences he had gathered in and around the schools. The show addresses the problems, history and hidden lessons of American compulsory schooling, but also covers a variety of educational topics including The Trivium, communication, mainstream media, peaceful parenting, philosophy, self-esteem, history and political science. Brett will discuss the difference between schooling vs. education and the importance of cognitive liberty. We’ll also compare past to present day intelligence levels and hear about the Flynn effect. Then, Brett tells about the 9 types of intelligence. Later on, we’ll discuss Charlotte Iserbyt’s work, John Dewey, the Scandinavian school system and the banning of homeschool in Europe. Brett also comments on anti-bullying laws in school and how it creates helplessness. In the member’s hour, we’ll speak more about homeschooling and what to do if it’s illegal in your area. He’ll also give his view on fighting the political system. Then, we’ll discuss how parents have become an enforcer for school, changing the dynamics of the parent/child relationship. Brett also talks about the 6 pillars of self-esteem. We’ll move on to talk about the power of pop culture and whether parents should shield their children from the programming. At the end of the hour, Brett gives advice for people who want to drop out of school."

(Admin Notice: As I warned some time ago, if I need to make time for my novel it would at the expense of my blogs; this is me making time for that while keeping up engagement here. I will resume writing essays and observations when the time crunch relents.)

(Originally posted to YouTube on 10/12/2014)

"As the false flag terror sponsor Saudi Arabia threatens the West with the claim that "ISIS Will Be Here Soon" and warns of an "imminent threat" from which the U.S. and Europe "can't hide", Gerald Celente of the Trends Journal joins us to dissect the despicable, sinister plans of the New World Order and the madness of the 'Grand Chessboard'. The pieces are all lining up to take the world directly in to World War III if the maniacs in power are not stopped."

Max Igan: Reclaiming the Earth-Steps Towards a Collective Awakening

Max Igan gave this presentation at the Open Mind Conference Copenhagen in Denmark, which occurred over the weekend of September 21st of 2014. You see this because, underneath all of the historical details of his argument (some of which I have issues with), he has a valid foundation: the real wealth of this planet is the whole of the population, and everything else is illusory- and therefore ephemeral and changeable. We can do what we need to do without the systems of control that prey upon us.

I Am Making My Move

I am, as of this post, committed to writing a novel. It is fiction. Indeed, it is a genre fiction novel in the Speculative Fiction realm (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror) because that genre area is one I am very familiar with and know well. That does not mean that I seek only to find a way to finance further operations; I am, as so many before me, using the creation of literature to communicate vitally important truths in a manner I cannot achieve in any other way. I am on my third draft, and I finished Chapter 5 on Thursday of last week. I start Chapter 6 tomorrow.

As this is a novel written as fiction, and intended to be sold as a commercial product, my first duty as a writer is to entertain. Nothing else I have to say means a damn thing if the reader is not willing to listen, and readers that enjoy what they read are more willing to do just that. So, no, I won't be following Ayn Rand's example; I'm aiming more for Tolkien, in that I too want to create a myth in order to demonstrate the power and importance of narrative as well as demonstrate how and why someone would want to use such power- i.e. why Empire wants such fundamental dominance of the individual.

I am not new at writing fiction. I've maintained an original fiction blog for five years now, and I've used that time to not only hone my craft as a writer but develop the discipline necessary to finish a project and make it readable. I have the benefit of knowing successful professionals, and I do read regularly. In other words, I have the bare minimum needed to seriously consider and attempt this project. I have Beta readers lined up to read the drafts as I finish them, and I expect that I will have something to offer sometime in 2015.

The consequence for my shift is that I will reduce this blog in priority. While a weekly schedule isn't that hard to keep up, and I've paced myself so far to handle this and the novel writing, I repeat what I said previously: should there be a schedule conflict, or some other pressing need, do count on this blog getting the chop first.

A Free Man Tells His Own Story

So, what's your story?

Such a simple question, right? No, it's not, and you know it because it's not the right question.

The right question is "So, who's telling your story?" If you truly are a free man, then the only proper response is "I am, and I alone."

In history, journalism, and political science we use the word "narrative" to mean "the story that a party tells to explain their perspective with regard to a given matter". Political campaigns are, for all intents and purposes, struggles over which narrative is more compelling to those who decide upon what to do or whom to elect with regards to those matters. Control over that narrative, therefore, means control of what story gets told and how it's presented. This is why politics is about illusion and perception, not reality.

Empire, as a toxic meme--or, as John Lash puts it, the "archonic infection"--requires the manipulation of one's paradigm in order to operate; as a fundamental, existential requirement it comprehends the need (as one comprehends the need to breathe to stay alive) to subvert, seize, and thereby control the narrative. Empire needs to tell the story of your life--of Mankind's life--in order to lay the foundation necessary for latter-order levels of dominance and control.

In more plain speech, we're talking about myth. No, not myth as a synonym for "lie" or "false", but the way that Joseph Campbell revived the term: "the narrative that a nation tells itself to explain how it relates to the environment wherein it exists". Those that control the mythology of the nation control the nation's narrative, and thereby exert control over the individual narrative of that nation's people. By shaping the very ground wherein battle is joined, those who control the narrative control the very language used--the symbols employed, and the meanings they convey--by all parties, constraining what is even conceived of in the minds of the combatants long before any conflict ensues. This is, in a very real sense, what ancients such as Sun Tzu meant by defeating an enemy first, and then joining battle to expand a victory.

If someone else tells your story, then they are dictating to you what you are to yourself. They tell you what your world is, and how you relate to it, and they exert real power over you by doing this because they con you into accepting their claims and thus subordinate your beliefs against you for their benefit. Belief is a very powerful thing; that which is not permitted within one's mind due to belief cannot ever be considered, let alone acted upon, so if you believe that you are weak and powerless then you shall conform to that belief- and that belief always stems from a myth that someone else foisted upon you when you were too weak in fact to resist it.

Slaves are chained, first and foremost, by the myths told to them about them by others. Empire is a slaver; it wants you to believe the myths told to you about you by it--it wants to control your narrative--and it cannot rely upon the physical, objective reality wherein facts exist and can be independently and universally verified to support its toxic mythologies. If you, on the other hand, build your own mythology upon that very same reality--the one with gravity, chemistry, physics, etc.--then your mythology will be stronger than anything that does not rely on that same foundation. A free man's mythology is self-made, builds upon the real world, and is told by no one but himself. He alone controls his narrative.

So, will you tell the myth of how you made Empire fall? No one else can. No one else will.

The Gnostic Media Podcast #212: 9/11 & Cyclical, Fear-Based Mind Control in the Media w/ Lenon Honor

Recorded on the 10th of this past week, I am embedding this interview because it does a great deal of good about explaining what is going on with the psychology behind the inside job that was 9/11 and how this technique for mind control (especially via opinion control) works in practice. Do watch, and sub to both Lenon and Jan's respective YouTube channels.

The Critical Literacy is Narrative Literacy

(Admin: Due to a death in the family, and therefore a funeral today, I am posting this entry early.)

I find it interesting that the emerging necessity in literacy is not, as is so often said, the literacy of programming- not in the form of writing and compiling applications to use in computer systems of various sorts. Instead, the necessary literacy is something that computer programming is only tangentially related to mastering: the literacy of narrative.

In other words, put down the C++ manual and go pick up Propaganda.

At this time, what we have is a very mature mastery of what narrative is and how to seize control over and manipulate the narratives of others. It is this literacy that I find, as a historian, to be both the issue and the solution to the problem in all sorts of societies and communities. This literacy is how systems of objective inquiry into how the physical world works can be, has been, and continues to be subborned to serve the ends of Empire. Far beyond such aphorisms as "Follow the Money", narrative literacy is the means by which resilient illusions and phantasms--built by way of application of discoveries regarding the brain, the mind, and how they work--can be made and maintained over generations, even centuries.

It is not merely the control over the flow of information. It is control over the presentation of information--who gets it, what do they get, when do they get it, where do they get it, how, and why--and control over the development of the skillset necessary to properly process information and produce true, faithful, and accurate conclusions that one can act upon. In other words, this is the shit that the Spook Sector has been about since intrigue began. Between 1984 and Brave New World, the multiple layers of this form of control become easier to see and thus to detect. If you can't conceive of a thing, then you can't comprehend it and thus act upon it, and Empire can prey upon you with ease; to quote Charles Baudelaire, "The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist". Narrative illiteracy, first and foremost, is the means by which said trick is made possible.

It is not enough to blithely accept some expert--no matter how esteemed--even if they speak within their known expertise. You must know who that expert is, whom they are tied to (and, if so, how), and if they have any history of questionable actions that would cast suspicion on the current claims. If you hear things by a third party, such as a news outlet, then you need to know them also- both the individuals doing the talking as well as the institutional relations of that outlet. (This is why even the appearance of impropriety is enough, in honest operations, to cause fallout up and including the liquidation of the offender(s) depending upon the severity of the offense.) Narrative literacy allows the individual to operate, as President Reagan is famous for saying, under the policy of "Trust, but Verify" because it takes the foundation of the Trivium and specializes it to permit the inquiry into such things in an efficient and effective manner: you know who to approach, what to say, when to say it, where to do it, how to do it, and through that process answer the vital question of "Why did they do or say what they said/did when/where/and how they did."

Why is this necessary? Because control over the narrative is very much a real and effective form of mind control, in that it is control over what is considered accepted and acceptable to think--it is opinion control, social control--because once a taste-maker decides what is or is not okay the forces of social conformity spin up and go into action. People are not hired, promoted, associated with, etc. for fear of themselves being ostracized in turn; real effects manifest over the opinion of another's opinion, effects that can lead to someone's death by means of deprivation because his access to resources is cut off by those with power over that access. Compare the careers of those who expose corruption within a given law enforcement agency or intelligence agency vs. those who contribute to covering them up; it is not just the whistleblowers who feel the blacklash, or their families, but everyone who makes any significant attempt to contravene the preferred opinion--the narrative--about that institution in the population at-large.

So, when you see someone post (or, more likely, repost) a claim that "it's over because we've got the pics/video/etc." you would be wise to not take that claim at face value. Thanks to the combination of nigh-ubiquitous Internet access in the First World (and increasing access worldwide), plenty of cheap communications technologies decentralizing the ability to communicate effectively and efficiently, and the increasing savvy of a young adult generation as to the technical aspect regarding information manipulation (which is the gateway to mastering the other sorts), what seems like an honest claim today can--and, increasingly, will if it's bullshit--be exposed as a false claim intended to shape the narrative in someone's preferred direction. (e.g. the analysis of the two recent ISIS beheadings by independent individuals)

"What's the story here?" is a good question to keep on hand now. Questioning the narrative imparted by a piece aids greatly in avoiding errors, and it is liberating your own narrative from those who would wield it against you that you become able to free yourself from Empire- and thus be your own savior, making Empire fall.

On the Matter of Space, Physical and Non-Physical Alike

When I was a boy, I learned from my father that one does not go where they are not wanted unless they are looking for a fight.

I find this concept to be a simple one, yet it is not comprehended by far too many individuals in this world because I see these fools trespassing into spaces where they have no right to be, are not needed there, are not wanted there, and then complain that they are treated like criminals for doing so.

Space is property. This includes social space. It is a thing that one creates through the admixture of one's labor with the raw material of Nature, changing it from what naturally emerges into something crafted and defined by the hands of Man and guided by the mind of Man. That it lacks a form obvious to one's eyes at times does not mean that the creation does not exist, that it is not a thing created by one or more individuals, and thus space is property.

Therefore, no one has the right to unilaterally cross into space that is neither their own property nor that which is the common property of all without the permission of the owner. To do so is to violate that property, to do damage or steal something that does not belong to you, and that is an act of violence. It is predatory behavior, and it is NOT to be tolerated.

There are places in this world where, for whatever reason, you are not to go. You do not have a right to be wherever you want to go; boundaries do exist, and with good reason, and one of the first steps to a practical and lasting peace is the insistence that these boundaries be respected- and that does me using whatever force is required to do the work necessary to finish the job that is defending these fundamental Natural Law rights. I weep not for the trespassers slain by those defending their property, and neither does any other right-thinking individual, because no one sheds a tear for those seeking to prey upon others.

As I said above, this includes social spaces. You don't have a right to be in a social space just because it is there, no matter how alluring that space is. If you are told to keep out, then know that you have no right of ownership. You are not wanted there. You are not needed there. Respect their right to their property, and go somewhere else. (And, by correlation, if you are allowed within, then you are a guest and you are expected to behave appropriately.) If you want to gain admission, then either take out an ownership stake or become an owner's guest, and take both the obligations as well as the benefits of that course of action. (Guests may be expelled at any time, and ownership demands engagement with that property.)

Space is not scarce. It is abundant, especially in the social realm. There is no reason to violate the space of others to achieve the ends that you desire from occupying that space; this is predatory behavior and cannot be tolerated. Go elsewhere and do the work necessary to create a space that is truly your own; violating the space of others is the path of destruction, chaos, and ruin- it turns everything it touches to shit. Building your own space, creating your own property, is the path of civilization, order, prosperity, and the betterment of Mankind as a whole. It takes time, and there is no guarantee of success, but even failure is productive and useful- if you are willing and able to listen to the lessons that it offers.

The violation of another's space, regardless of the excuse, is to show that you are infected by Empire; you make the false presumption that you can claim that which you neither created nor traded for, under some sophistry that comes down to "I am your master, and you shall obey because reasons or I shall violate your body or your property until I compel compliance from you." This is Empire. If you think yourself better than this, then prove it- and repent from such behavior forevermore. The more that we do this, the sooner Empire must fall.

Truthstream News EP02: Faux Aid and Corntamination

Description: "We're back! It's Truthstream News No. 2! First, we just want to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming support we received after we put up the first show. You guys are awesome.

In this second episode of Truthstream News, Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton expose the phony pretenses behind a massive corporate takeover in Africa and the rest of the world – as well as other examples of Trojan Horse philanthropic aid on the international scene.

We also finally finished Corntamination! (Long time fans: remember that from last summer?) Woooot!

In this episode:
  • Aaron sells the world on international food aid at the hands of the planet's foremost billionaires.
  • Melissa presents evidence to support her hypothesis that working for the highest echelon of the federal government turns people into bridge trolls.
  • The duo breakdown the recent U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit and what's really driving all this "foreign aid".
  • John Kerry tells starving Africans not to build any new farms, just to plant some GMO, while Obama informs young African leaders that we can't live in a world where everybody has a nice house and air conditioning because the planet will "boil over".
  • Melissa discovers the benefits of water fluoridation.
  • In a special investigative report, Truthstream follows the trail of biopharming, where science is using genetically engineered crops to growing pharmaceutical and vaccine components. Some of these medications are developed to be eaten directly as food. (Remember Prodigene and Epicyte?)

"Authority" is a Cult. Resisting is Doing Good.

Given the events going on in Ferguson, Missouri I find this article at the Free Thought Project to be one that needs a much wider reading. Usually, I would just link to it and give my commentary below. Today, I will reproduce it in its entirety (link to the original is above) and then give my commentary, and that will come with a Larken Rose video that speaks blasphemy against Empire's false faith, the Cult of the Thin Blue Line. WARNING: This is going to be a long post.

No, The Police Don’t Work for You

By Matt Agorist on July 21st, 2014.

Law enforcement is a “product” we are forced to buy

“The police are worthless. I don’t know what we’re paying them for.” Pro Libertate

William N. Grigg

July 21, 2014

That familiar, despairing lament was voiced by a friend here in Payette after his family had lost $20,000 worth of property a burglary. The crime was solved before the police intervened: Some of the pilfered property was still in possession of the suspects, who admitted that it didn’t belong to them. Working on their own initiative, my friend and his adult daughter — the primary victim — tracked down more of the stolen goods at local yard sales and garage sales.

A phone call to the Payette PD led to a visit by an officer who was courteous, professional, and who provided no practical help of any kind. He did arrest one suspect, a mentally deficient man who readily admitted to the officer that he had taken the property because an unspecified “they” had told him it was “all right” to do so.

Neither the responding officer, nor the colleague who took over the case when the first officer went on vacation, expended any effort to identify who “they” were, or to press charges against the accomplices. The case was closed with the arrest of a solitary man — a registered sex offender — who “became somewhat upset [because] he was the only one who was going to be in trouble for the thefts that occurred, because he was honest,” as an investigative report summarized.

“The police wouldn’t bother to fingerprint my stolen property,” Elizabeth Puckett, the owner of the property, recounted to me. “When I asked why, the officer said, `Well, we’re not CSI.’” It shouldn’t be assumed that the Payette PD is consistently insouciant about the collection of forensic evidence. A few years ago, Puckett recalls, she received a visit from the Animal Control officer (an official with whom I’ve had some experience) after the department received a report that “we had a dog that looked like a pit bull.”

A county ordinance enacted several years ago during a spasm of civic alarm forbids residents to “own, possess, keep, exercise control over, maintain, harbor, transport, buy or sell” pit bulls or “dangerous dogs” displaying pit bull characteristics. Those who owned such dogs prior to enactment of the ban were required to register them with the police (who were exempt from the ordinance, of course), “keep $1 million liability insurance, have a microchip ID … implanted in the dog, and pay an annual pit bull license fee.” Dogs owned by people not in compliance with the edict “are subject to impoundment and destruction.”

“The officer told us that if we were going to keep it we would have to have a blood test,” Elizabeth recalled. “So I would have had to pay $100 for a blood test, and still could lose the dog if it displayed the wrong `characteristics.’ So I just let the dog go.”

The same Payette Police Department that couldn’t help Elizabeth recover her stolen property was diligent in taking her property, even though she had done no injury to anybody else. This is because the Payette PD, like every other agency of its kind, is involved in law enforcement, rather than the protection of persons and property. It defines its role in terms of what its officers can do to people, rather than what they are required to do for people.

No, Police Don’t Work for You

When a disgusted citizen tells an abusive police officer that he pays the officer’s salary, the victim is committing a category error. Those of us who constitute the productive sector don’t pay the police; they are paid by the people who plunder our property at gunpoint. Once it is understood that police employed by the people who commit aggression against our property, we shouldn’t be surprised that police are of practically no value in terms of protecting property against criminal aggression. Police are properly seen as retail-level distributors of violence on behalf of the coercion cartel.

Law enforcement is a “product” we are forced to buy, and severely punished — through summary application of torture, or even by death — if we refuse. Since law enforcement operates as a monopoly, rather than through the market, there is no legitimate pricing mechanism to guide rational allocation of resources, and no way to measure “customer” satisfaction — although using the term “customer” in this context is a bit like using the term “girlfriend” to describe a rape victim.

Indeed, the institutional response of law enforcement to public dissatisfaction is to expand and escalate the behavior that inspired the discontent, and treat persistent criticism as evidence of criminal intent. Witness recent developments in Albuquerque, where outrage over serial police homicides — including the death squad-style murder last March of James Boyd, an unarmed homeless man — generated a substantial organized protest movement.

After infuriated protesters took control of a city council meeting to place the defiant APD Chief Gorden Eden “on trial,” the city government’s reaction was not to cashier the official who had instigated the outrage, but rather to impose new restrictions on citizen participation in city council meetings.

When protesters held a subsequent public “mock trial” of Chief Eden at a peaceful public demonstration, the gathering was infiltrated by a several undercover police officers, including a detective who had shot a 20-year-old in the stomach during a drug sting in 2010. As public frustration and discontent continue to rise in Albuquerque, the APD has responded to the growing dissatisfaction of its “clientele” by spending $350,000 to purchase 350 AR-15 rifles – the same type that were used to slaughter Boyd in the foothills outside the city just a few weeks earlier.

The Albuquerque Police Department, like dozens of others nation-wide, has displayed what the Justice Department calls a “pattern and practice” of excessive force. If it were a private corporation, it would be the target of lawsuits and, most likely, criminal prosecution. Unlike a private entity, however, a police department is protected by the fiction of “sovereign immunity,” and its employees are shielded from personal accountability through “qualified immunity.”

While exceptionally corrupt police departments are occasionally disbanded, their “markets” are quickly captured by other agencies that will provide the same “service.” Individual police officers who distinguish themselves through abusive and criminal behavior — which, given the competition, is a significant accomplishment — sometimes find themselves briefly unemployed. However, they often become “gypsy cops” and find employment elsewhere as state-licensed purveyors of violence.

“Operational Security” rather than Accountability

One fact not adequately understood by the public is that even geographically local police departments are not locally accountable. Police chiefs are not elected officials; they are appointed by the municipal corporation that employs them. Police departments describe themselves as public agencies for the purpose of “qualified immunity.” However, as the recent ACLU report on police militarization revealed, an increasing number of police agencies are claiming to be “private corporations” exempt from open records laws.

This isn’t the only tactic employed by police agencies to impede transparency and accountability to the public supposedly “served” by them.

I recently filed a public records request with the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office regarding the disposal of a huge quantity of marijuana that had been seized by a nearby multi-jurisdictional narcotics task force. Undersheriff Travis Johnson informed me that he could provide “photo documentation” of the marijuana being buried at a local landfill. “The cost to produce those records will be one hour of labor at $48.11 and one CD at $10 for a total of $58.11,” according to Johnson.

Both the “labor” and materials involved in fulfilling that records request have already been paid for. The information — which, interestingly, was not provided to the defense as discovery during a recently-concluded trial — should be easy to find. All that is necessary would be for a MCSO functionary to insert a CD into a computer and click a mouse. A single CD — assuming that Malheur County buys them in bulk – would cost less than twenty cents. The market rate for an hour of labor by a “copy specialist” is less than nine dollars. The amount cited to me by Undersheriff Johnson reflects the price structure of a monopoly, which in this case is trying to impede public scrutiny of its actions by making it cost-prohibitive to pursue public records requests.

Opacity of this kind is hardly compatible with a “public service” agency. It is entirely appropriate, however, for an entity that sees the public as hostile and thus makes “operational security” a priority.

Even before “local” police agencies were effectively satellitized by the federal government they were paramilitary bodies designed to operate as occupation forces, rather than as a protective service. In creating his London Metropolitan Police, Robert Peel adapted the model he had employed in creating the “Peace Preservation Force,” a specialized unit within the 20,000-man military contingent Peel had commanded as military governor of occupied Ireland.

Peel’s Militaristic Model

Writing in the December 1961 Journal of Modern History, Galen Broekker observed that when Peel was appointed governor in 1814, his objective in creating the Peace Preservation Force was “`pacifying’ a recalcitrant population.” For several years prior to Peel’s appointment, rural insurgents called “banditti” had been fighting among themselves and occasionally attacking British outposts. Of much greater concern to occupation authorities, however, was evidence of involvement by “respectable people” in “insurrectionary activity of a political nature.”

At the time of Peel’s arrival, the crime rate in Ireland wasn’t particularly high, so he took advantage of a “lull” to “muster the forces of authority in anticipation of the inevitable trouble to come” as English authorities took aggressive action to stamp out separatism. The “Peace Preservation Force” — which was the prototype for every modern police agency — wasn’t designed to protect person and property from criminal aggression, but rather to protect a political elite. This is why Peel’s London Metropolitan Police Force was initially greeted with hostility by conservatives in the British Parliament and the public at large, who often referred to officers as “Blue Locusts.” Within a decade, however, Peel’s model was firmly entrenched in London, and migrated across the Atlantic to New York City.

As evangelists of “Manifest Destiny” carved their bloody path to the Pacific, an Americanized version of Peel’s police concept was among the chief tenets of their gospel of government-imposed “civilization.” It wasn’t until the early 1970s, however, that the latent militarism of the police was given expression when the Nixon administration declared “war” on drugs. This led to the proliferation of SWAT teams, which were modelled after counter-insurgency units organized by the CIA as part of its Phoenix Program in Vietnam.

Declining Crime, Escalating Police Militarism

Beginning in the 1970s, the official rhetoric of law enforcement became overtly martial, a tendency that has grown in crescendo. However, by most measures, violent crime has been in decline for five decades. A similar trend is visible regarding on-the-job police fatalities. Joseph McNamara, former NYPD Deputy Inspector, points out that police “work” is actually much safer today than it has been in a half-century or more. Law enforcement is not found in the top ten “most dangerous occupations” in the annual list compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Yet police insist that the United States “has become a war zone,” in the words of Sheriff Michael Gayer of Indiana’s Pulaski County. This is entirely true — but only in the sense that the police consider themselves at war with the public, and have fully embraced a mindset compatible with their role as an occupying army.

As was the case when Peel created his “Peace Preservation Force” in Ireland two centuries ago, the Power Elite has been relentlessly expanding its domestic army of occupation and indoctrinating those enlisted therein to see the public as its enemy — ”in anticipation of the inevitable trouble to come.”

Just a few weeks ago, the House of Representatives recently rejected, by a dramatic margin, an amendment to a military spending bill proposed by Florida Democratic Representative Alan Grayson that would have placed theoretical limits on the transfer of war-fighting assets to local police departments. Mind you, that measure would not have shut down the Pentagon’s pipeline to the police; it would have forbidden future transfers of high-capacity weaponry, including armed drones, armored vehicles, grenade launchers, “toxicological agents,… guided missiles, ballistic missiles, rockets, torpedoes, bombs, mines, or nuclear weapons.”

The amendment was rejected by a vote of 355 to 62 — which means that 355 members of the House of Representatives, the branch of the federal legislature supposedly most accountable to the people, are on record refusing to rule out the transfer of nuclear weapons to your “local” police agency. Some of the most outspoken critics of Grayson’s amendment waxed indignant in condemning critics of the ongoing militarization of the police.

“This is absolutely ludicrous to think that the equipment that is utilized by law enforcement is utilized for any reason except for public safety interests, and it happens across this nation every day in a responsible way,” harrumphed Florida Republican Representative Rich Nugent, a former sheriff. Nugent is correct about one thing: Military-grade hardware and war-fighting tactics are used by police “every day”: On average, there are 124 SWAT deployments every day, nearly all of them carried out as drug enforcement raids or to enforce routine search warrants. Many, if not most, of those raids are carried out after sunset or before the dawn.

There is no country on earth where citizens are more likely to experience the “midnight knock” than the United States of America. That fact surely reflects the interests of those who want to monopolize power, rather than a market demand for “security.”

Keynesian Cops

As part of the Obama administration’s “stimulus” package in 2009, the Justice Department increased spending on its Byrne grant and COPS programs — two major conduits for local law enforcement subsidiesby more than $4 billion. At the same time, the Pentagon expanded its 1033 program, through which military-grade hardware and vehicles are provided, on concessionary terms, to local police. The predictable, and subsequently observed, impact of this example of police state Keynesianism was a dramatic escalation in police militancy toward the public. But these federally created distortions in the “security” market have created other, less visible burdens on the public as well.

The police department in Nampa, Idaho, a city of about 80,000 people with a crime rate well below the national average, was one of more than 400 to receive a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle through the Pentagon’s 1033 program. Over the past two years, the Nampa PD also purchased a new fleet of Ford Taurus Police Interceptor patrol vehicles. However, in June Chief Craig Kingsbury went to the City Council to ask for funding to purchase a dozen additional SUV patrol vehicles because the Interceptors “aren’t popular with many of the department’s officers — they’re cramped and uncomfortable for long patrols,” reported the Idaho Press-Tribune.

In the hierarchy of public concerns, “officer comfort” apparently resides very close to the sacred imperative of “officer safety.” Rather than requiring his subordinates to adapt to their vehicles in order to serve their “customers” better, Kingsbury insists on getting another $441,000 in plundered funds to serve the creature comfort of Nampa’s costumed tax-feeders.

Question: If the need for new patrol vehicles is so acute, why doesn’t the Nampa PD sell off its spanking-new MRAP, which has a listed market value of about $500,000? Like hundreds of other departments, the Nampa PD got the MRAP not because of an actual need, but because the Pentagon was willing to give it to them at practically no expense. If we were to assume that the SUV patrol vehicles are a “necessity,” the MRAP should be regarded as a luxury and liquidated as such. That’s how a market-based enterprise would operate, in any case.

However, the only market for MRAPs consists of other police departments that can get them from the Pentagon at negligible expense. Even if the people running the Nampa PD were sufficiently rational and mature to sell off their dangerous new toy, they wouldn’t find a buyer. Unless austerity is somehow imposed on the Nampa PD, the city’s tax victims will eventually be forced to pay nearly the entire price of the “free” MRAP that was provided to the department — a vehicle that has no conceivable use other than providing “force protection” during SWAT raids of the kind that have become commonplace.

Predation, Not Protection

Like most other police agencies, the Nampa PD devours roughly half the municipal budget, and much of that expense is devoted to salaries. In 2010, seven of the ten highest-paid municipal positions in Nampa were filled by “public safety” officials, only one of whom — Fire Chief Karl Malott — was not a police officer. Coming in at number four on that list was Corporal (now Sergeant) Jason Cantrell, who received $104,173 in total compensation — nearly as much as then-Chief Bill Augsburger. Another corporal, Chadrick Shepard, finished at ninth place on the list with an annual haul of $93,559.

The median salary for a Nampa patrol officer is $50,214 – about $4,000 more than Idaho’s median household income, and roughly $14,000 more than the typical household income in the city supposedly “served” by that police department. A “parking and compliance officer” for the Nampa PD – that is, a state functionary who writes parking tickets — can expect a starting salary of $13.50 an hour. By way of contrast, an entry-level “security officer” employed by Secure Solutions to provide protection for private and commercial property in neighboring Boise is offered $10.00 an hour.

These disparities in compensation are not the product of natural market forces, because police and private security officers are not serving the same market: The later protect property, the former protect those who prey upon it. Even in the era of the all-encompassing Homeland Security State, privately employed security officers outnumber government-employed cops by at least three to one.

If government law enforcement agencies performed the advertised function of “protecting and serving” property rights, it wouldn’t be necessary for property owners to pay for their own security services. It has been known for decades — specifically, since the Police Foundation’s year-long study of the impact of “preventive patrols” on crime rates in the early 1970s — that government law enforcement patrols do nothing to reduce or deter property crimes, such as “burglaries, auto thefts, larcenies … robberies, or vandalism.” Private security services, such as Detroit’s Threat Management Center, provide much better protection – as do armed citizens, as Detroit’s Police Chief James Craig has admitted.

Once again, this isn’t surprising: Government-employed police have no enforceable duty to protect persons and property, even those to whom they have made explicit promises of individual protection. In fact, citizens are expected to protect the police – and some have found themselves being sued by officers who accused them of failing to provide that protection.

New York City was the first jurisdiction to adopt Peel’s model of paramilitary policing. Three years ago, NYPD officer Terrance Howell, who had been sent to find a deranged slasher-killer named Maxim Gelman, who had murdered three people, watched from the operator’s booth of a subway car while a martial arts expert named Joseph Lozito tackled and subdued the suspect. As Gelman slashed at the back of Lozito’s head, the desperate, bleeding man pleaded for help from Officer Howell, who did nothing to intervene. It was not until after Lozito had pinned Gelman to the floor and disarmed him that Howell emerged from his secure location and told Lozito, “You can get up now.”

Howell, the “hero cop” who was photographed triumphantly escorting Gelman in handcuffs, admitted to a member of a grand jury that he had hid from the suspect out of fear for his safety. After Lozito filed a tort claim for negligence, city attorney David Santoro explained that “Under well-established law, the police are not liable for such incidents” because police have “no special duty” to protect any individual citizen – even one who is literally bleeding to death a few feet away as he heroically subdues a psychotic murderer.

“Next time you hear people call cops trigger-happy or complain about their overtime and pensions, think of Police Officer Terrance Howell,” pontificated the New York Daily News in a reflexive paean to the police after Gelman’s arrest.

Ironically, that is a very good suggestion. Here is a better one: Next time you are told that police protect the public, remember Joseph Lozito.

Where protection of property is concerned, police are much worse than useless. Their job is to enforce the will of the predatory class that employs them, which is why we would be safer without them.

* * * * *

I long had my suspicions as to the origin of police agencies, as they emerged in the 19th century, due to their ties to corrupt and evil organizations such as the Pinkerton Detective Agency and the Wackenhut Corporation. However, I was unaware of the ties between the British oppression of Ireland and the creation of London's Metropolitan Police; Robert Peel has much to answer for. Though I have long though that the bunker mentality of the cop culture was largely self-inflicted, I did not realize that their origins in the brutal occupation forces in Ireland were there by design.

This validates the experiences in the United States of minority communities nation-wide: the purpose of Law Enforcement is to be the Praetorian Guard for the Elite, whose purpose is to "serve and protect" their masters, to enforce the regime. This is why Posse Comitatus was never a big deal; the "standing armies" fear of the Founders manifested not in the fear of regular soldiers on the streets (or even reservists or the National Guard), but exists--and has existed for generations now--in the form of uniformed paramilitaries (the aforementioned police agencies) playing legbreaker to their employers (who are just gangsters with good publicity).

Which means that we now run into an issue with the civic cult we've been indoctrinated with since birth, which is that cops are superior beings due to being cops and as such are to enjoy privileged status against the common people- and that to resist them is to commit blasphemy against the great god Authority. To suggest otherwise, to say that they are but ordinary men and subject to the same universal morality that everyone else abides by, and therefore can be--and should be--foricibly resisted when they turn their predatory behaviors against you and move to violate your body or property--to do violence to you or yours--by any means necessary, up to and including killing them, is an act of blasphemy to those in thrall to the Thin Blue Line Cult.

Of course, as with any other religion, this claim is false. The Thin Blue Line Cult is a sect within the larger false faith of "Government". This is, in fact, a religion dedicated to Empire in the guise of "authority" (as Mark Passio, in other words, explains in his seminars), and as such is as false as all other religions are. It destroys lives--the term is "democide"--and consumes nations; it's a cult. Yes, that's what this really is: a destructive religious cult. The dogma of the cult promotes all of the predatory behavior in the article above, and uses magical thinking and logical fallacies to brainwash the population (in conjunction to their own terrorist acts; this is not hyperbole- committing acts of violence against civilian populations for the expressed purpose of gaining and keeping compliance to their will is the very definition of terrorism.

As this is a religion, with a god--"Authority"--that does not exist in reality, I am as much an atheist here as I am elsewhere. It is not evil to resist criminal frauds, and it certain is not evil to resist violence done to perpetuate such frauds; belief in authority is as much a sign of arrested development--of being a cognitive child--as earnest belief in Santa or the Tooth Fairy, and so when individuals freak out at the suggest that it is okay to shoot--even kill--cops when they cross the line, I cannot help but to think of it as akin to telling a Scientologist that L. Ron Hubbard is a fraud who continues to ply suckers from well beyond the grave (such as most Scientologists) and that they are materially contributing by--and are accountable for--their acts on behalf of that criminal organization.

Remember, "this nonviolent stuff'll get you killed", as we see so often with disarmed or ill-armed populations facing oppressive occupations. The people of Ferguson, as with Gaza and all other peoples under occupation, should arm themselves and resist by force--which, obviously, means that killing is on the table; dead predators can't prey upon you--EVERYONE that seeks to do violence to them, to violate their bodies (or those of their dependents) or their property. The use of force, especially deadly force, against those initiating violence is not only NOT a crime, it is a necessary and vital act to secure and defend Civilization. The insistence, based on "authority", to the contrary is a criminal fraud and will NOT be entertained by any rational and mature individual.

No, it's NOT okay if you're wearing a uniform.

No, it's NOT okay if you're wearing a badge.

No, it's NOT okay if you're "following orders". (That shit went out at Nuremburg.)

No, it's NOT okay if another man--regardless of what he wears, what he says, or what thing on a piece of paper he points to says--tells you that it's okay because he is lying to you. No man can absolve you of responsibility for your actions.

YOU are responsible for your actions, ever and always; if you prey upon someone (under the color of law or not), and you suffer an injury or die due to the use of force against you in the work of resisting your violation of them, then you deserved it and it is NEVER wrong to employ such force--to do such work, even if it kills the violator--to resist violence. Little Timmy, in time, will be told that his parent died because he was a bad man who did evil things to other people, and the reason that you aren't here anymore is because he got put down by someone who had the means and the opportunity to put a stop to it. It has happened before, and until Empire falls it will happen again.

Those who cannot accept this are not yet adults.

The Echoes of the Guns of August

The First World War began 100 years ago this year. Due to the communications and transportation technologies of the time, there remained a significant lag time between the heads of state declaring war in the aftermath of Archduke Ferdinand's assassination and the commencement of hostilities. Procedures had to be followed, public support garnered by hook or by crook, and the militaries had to mobilize. First by train, and then by ship, Allied and Central Powers deployed their forces in Europe and elsewhere around the globe (though, to be fair, this was primarily a European affair). Hostilities--i.e. people shooting at each other--commenced on August of 1914, hence the meme referred to in the title (and the title of Barbara Tuchman's famous book on this moment in history).

That war changed everything. According to some, the First World War was the true end of the 19th Century, as the social paradigm that existed before the war did not survive it. The chaos that the war wreaked upon the world, especially in the West, did not end with the 1918 armistice; the changes in female social status, the shifts in political and philosophical paradigms, the economic upheavals (both the boom of the '20s and the bust of the '30s) were all foreseeable consequences of the costs incurred prosecuting the war. The common man, by and large, profited little or not at all from it- and the Versailes Treaty ensured that peace could not last, but instead that the war would resume within the lifetimes of those men who survived this round. The real beneficiaries, as usual, were the elites.

As Smedley Butler said, war is a racket. That war was one, and so has every war since then. (Arguably, every war from the 18th Century in Europe forward, but that gets into Crazytown turf.) Since then, the nature of war as a racket has become increasingly clear, and the propaganda required to manufacture consent (and therefore support) for war has had to become increasingly sophisticated to obscure the truth. More advanced manipulations, at higher levels of operation (more economic and less diplomatic in their schemes; this would become formalized and systamatized after the Second World War in the corporate-centric trans-national system that John Perkins would reveal in Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

Perkins revealed that war, in this system, was the final failsafe when the system's ordinary operations could not be sustained due to the toxic effects of its operations. What is not clear in that book, or in the follow-up (A Game as Old as Empire: the Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption), is that this system existed in familiar--but less company-centric--iterations before Perkins' time. Butler's testimony of his military operations, by way of the United States' government, does make clear that military operations--including formal, declared wars--are (as Sun Tzu, Machievelli, and Clauswitz all teach) nothing but politics by other means, and that means war is a tool of Empire.

So, why the echoes? August, especially in Europe, remains a time for many to take Summer vacations (holidays, for you folks on the other side of the pond)- and the establishments of the world are very keen on those vacations. Therefore, political events that make significant shifts in the world increasingly trend towards beginning (if not also ending) in August, with precursors or catalysts put in place in the months before; long before the backroom deals that spawned the phrase "October Surprise", we had this become a thing- World War I was just the first prominent expression.

Now we see a lot of similar things going on. Massive international alliances, each on hair-triggers, manuevering for advantage in a struggle for dominance are again a thing. An increasingly unstable global economy, threatening total collapse, is in the air and with it increasing political destablization that opens the door to radicalization and fractionalization (and therefore to infilltration by hostile interests seeking to shape events to their advantage). Attempted and successful assassinations of major figures are accelerating in frequency. Sooner or later, if this goes on, the conditions for a repeat of World War I will manifest- and soon thereafter, those conditions will produce that war. This is why I say "echoes"; history doesn't necessarily repeat, as such, but it often rhymes.

Empire knows this, and seeks to ensure its survival now that one host seems too week to continue and another host seems ready for the taking by leaping from one to another by way of war and the chaos that comes of it. This is the long game of Empire, that toxic meme that's ruined Mankind for so long, and now that more and more of us are aware of it we have a chance to kill it; all we need to do is deny it the chance to swap hosts. Let the current one die, quarantined and isolated, and scour its remains to be certain; don't let the emerging response become infected. Not easy, not painless, and not without sacrifice- but the opportunity exists, here and now, to stop Empire from extending its unnatural existence any further, to make Empire fall.

Down The Rabbit Hole w/ Popeye (07-24 2014) IDF Soldiers & Holocaust Survivors vs. Israel

Description: On this edition of DTRH Popeye goes over two main topics. In the first hour he covers the ongoing slaughter in Palestine by Israel. This being an ongoing subject he has been discussing on the broadcast. This time he plays audio from two holocaust survivors who take the government and it’s supporters in Israel, and Zionism itself to the woodshed. He then plays an audio clip of two former IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) Soldiers who expose the reality of the occupation of Palestine, what those people face on a daily basis, the dehumanization of it’s people, and more. In hour number two Popeye covers mind control, and how society is controlled on a mass scale. You will hear how TV, and sports are used to control society; and a rare interview from 1985 with former KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov. He explains the 4 basic steps to socially engineering entire generations into thinking and behaving the way those in power want them to. It’s shocking because our nation has been transformed in the exact same way, and followed the exact same steps.

Breaking The Silence: Israeli Soldiers Speak Out About The Reality In The Occupied Territories

A searing interview with Avichai Sharon and Noam Chayut, both veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces and members of Breaking the Silence. Sharon and Chayut served during the second intifada, an on-going bloodbath that has claimed the lives of over three thousand Palestinians and nine-hundred-fifty Israelis. After thorough introspection, these young men have chosen to speak out about their experiences as self-described "brutal occupiers of a disputed land."

TruthStreamMedia: From Martial Law to Big Money - Five Questions We're Asking about the Ebola Scare

This is what happens when you get out from under Alex Jones: you actually become just as effective, if not moreso, than his outfit on a fraction of the time or resources (or bullshit). Nevermind Jones; mind these two instead (but not uncritically so). Here's their introduction: "Why are they shipping Ebola-infected patients onto American soil for the first time? Why is Obama amending executive orders about quarantining people infected with Ebola when he already had that power? What exactly have Ft. Detrick biowarfare researchers been doing in the Ebola hot zone in West Africa all this time? Why does the U.S. government own a patent on a novel strain of Ebola that those same Ft. Detrick researchers quietly admitted in a CDC journal article last month may actually be the cause of the current Sierra Leone outbreak, not Ebola Zaire as widely reported? Who stands to gain from this, and what is it they are ultimately after?

Just asking. Talking about something scary isn't automatically scaremongering, but if the powers that shouldn't be are scaremongering, we should talk about it.

P.S. - The Bundibugyo version of Ebola (Ebobun), which is apparently genetically distinct, differing by more than 30% at the genome level from all other known ebolavirus species, has a much lower death rate than the Zaire version the media keeps talking about, at 36% for the initial Ebobun outbreak versus 70-90% on average for Zaire. Additionally, because it is much more unique, if a vaccine or treatment is created for Ebola and the Ebobun strain is not taken into account, the resulting treatment or vaccine obviously might not work on it."

The Hollywood Ten - ClandesTime 034

Secker Says: "In this investigative episode I look into the background of the Hollywood Ten - a group of filmmakers who were jailed for refusing to answer questions by the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities. Their case helped establish the Hollywood blacklist, and all ten were Communists of one sort or another. Despite this, four of the ten were involved in military/intelligence assisted productions. I explore this apparent contradiction and try to resolve it via the papertrail, concluding that McCarthyism was not just a domestic subversion program, but also subject to a turf war between the FBI and CIA."

The Internet Is Key To Empire's Fall

The Internet continues to prove that it is a game-changing technology, one that Empire's Thralls are not happy with because it cuts down--and threatens to destroy--the ability to control a narrative. This is clearly seen in the West when looking at coverage of the Israeli criminality going on in Gaza. Even as recent as 2006, mainstream media outlets successfully controlled the narrative of that episode in the West; the penetration of the Internet, while great, had not reached the levels that exist now. Now, eight years later, Internet penetration is so broad and deep that the mainstream and established media outlets--all in thrall to Empire--cannot control that narrative anymore.

You cannot lie to the Internet. That is what is now clear. The Western Establishment's narrative is continually undermined by the efforts of ordinary people filming the protests that do not get covered properly (if covered at all) by the mainstream outlets, be it protests about Gaza, protests about Ukraine, even things that go on in North Korea or the People's Republic of China. Even if it is deleted after posting, that doesn't mean that it is gone, as many celebrities and politicians have found out to their detriment. This is a big part of the reason for why there is a big push to fetter the Internet; all of the statutes, treaties, buyouts, paid shills, infiltration and "moderation" of unwanted narratives in places like Reddit (and so on) are intended to bring the Internet to heel and serve Empire (as was its original intention).

No, not in a grand and centrally-coordinated conspiracy; it is instead just an intention to create the conditions wherein normal corporate or business sensibilities warp online cultures into the same drone hive we see everyday in corporate and government offices everywhere. In short, the same structural method that constrains the old mainstream media to serve Empire is intended to be imposed on the Internet as a whole; go read Chomsky & Herman's Manufacturing Consent to see how that happened a generation or so ago with regard to newspapers, radio, and television.

We need a free and independent Internet, founded upon the principle of Network Neutrality and enforced with the ethics behind Open Source software, to continue to break the hold of Empire upon the narratives that Empire and its Thralls use to justify its various actions around the world. The Western Establishment cannot be trusted. The governments of the BRICS cannot be trusted either; never trust ANY government, and don't trust corporations either- not Google, not Microsoft, not ADM, not Monsanto, not Boeing, none of them no matter their size, influence, past behavior/performance, etc. Trust in individuals alone, and never in the creations of an individual (e.g. governments, corporations, NGOs, etc.), and only so long as they continue to demonstrate by deed their worthiness.

We cannot make Empire fall by staying within its structure, and living by its rules. We have to bring it down from without by taking down its ability to exert its influence, and that means taking back control over the narratives we tell about ourselves; we must fight to protect the Internet, using all means available, and be ready and willing to do what it takes to make that so- peacefully if we can. This is something worth fighting for, so fight- and with this cause to fuel our fight, we cannot lose and Empire will fall.

Anthony Lawson: The Blood of Palestine is on the Hands of the Bribe-Takers

Lawson's Description: "The blood of the thousands of Palestinians who have been killed by the so-called Israel Defence Forces since the beginning of the siege of Gaza, stains the hands of each and every politician who has done nothing to censure Israel for this cruel and illegal act of virtual imprisonment, or who has taken any kind of bribe to bolster his or her election-campaign coffers, in return for turning their backs on the quite obvious fact that Apartheid Israel has never had any intention other than to genocide the Palestinian people.

Gaza Massacre - Max Igan - Truth News Radio Australia - July, 25th, 2014

True Lies and Reel Bad Arabs - ClandesTime 033

"Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Radio joined us again to talk about the the portrayal of Arabs in Hollywood. We talk about the documentary Reel Bad Arabs, which details much of the stereotyping of Arabs in popular movies, and also the film True Lies as an example of these trends. We look at some of the limits in the analysis offered by Reel Bad Arabs, the military involvement in making True Lies, and the careers of the actors who played the two main Arab characters in the film -- Art Malik, who seems to specialise in playing terrorists, and Grant Heslov who won an Oscar for producing Argo."

Storm Clouds Gathering, MH17, and You

Need a break from Gaza stuff? I would think so by now. (Don't worry; Max on Gaza will appear again this coming week.)

Our friends over at Storm Clouds Gathering released a video on Malaysia Airlines' MH17 today. It's very timely information, so I'm letting them take the stage today. Below I'm embedding the video and then putting a link to their transcription of the video script (which has links to their sources), but--quoting them--this is why I'm doing it:

"This video is particular in that it has many layers of information. This layering was necessary to accommodate details we received while in the later stages. To fully understand it you will need to watch it more than once and pause at several points. The video however did not have room for other sources, video clips and commentary which we have included in the written transcript, so you will need to visit the written version as well if you want to see the full picture.

Initially we considered doing a full analysis of the various theories and debunking those that were false, but in the end we realized that there is far too much disinfo to cover it within a reasonable time frame (the video is already over 14 minutes long). Instead we will deal with those theories in a dedicated article later."

That's a level of dedication to discipline and integrity that is not as commonplace as it ought to be, which is why I favor them and include their stuff whenever I can. Watch the video, and then read the transcript. You'll be better for it.

The transcript is here.

Max Igan is Mad About Gaza.

The following week of curated posts focus upon Max Igan and his pursuit of what is going on in Palestine, specifically Gaza, and why it exposes the Israeli government as being little more than a macro-level example of the abused becoming the abuser. While there are some online who take this as an opportunity to spew forth the Jew-hate, they are misguided; the problem is not Jews or Judaism, but Zionism--a completely separate and distinct ideology, created in the 19th century, which parasitically rides Judaism as well as Christianity to its own benefit; it is a manifestation of Empire--and it is this toxic fraud of an ideology that threatens to kill and kill and kill to feed itself until both Palestinians and Jews are utterly extinct.

Israel's contemporary history is itself the result of fraud, starting with 19th century talks by Zionists of a return that took on substance during the 1st World War with the Sykes-Pico Agreement that created the provisions needed to prepare for the post-WW2 creation of Israel in 1948 when the British Mandate over Palestine became Israel. In the West, especially the US, Israeli agents (formal and otherwise) work to obscure its history, maintain political and social influence amongst its backers, and otherwise be a less-than-honest actor in the world.

So yes, I am no friend of the government of Israel; it is the engine of an Apartheid state even worse than South Africa, and its actions against the Palestinians since the beginning is abhorrent and inhumane. It has no right to exist, and should not exist; if it ceased to exist, world peace would be improved. It's is one of Empire's workshops, and it must fall for the good of all Mankind.

So, I ask that you take the time over the coming week to listen to the interviews and conversations that Max has regarding Israel and Gaza- and remember that much of this applies also to other contexts here and now.

Thomas Sheridan: Cultural Marxism and the Psy-Op in Europe (Red Ice Radio)

Description: "Thomas Sheridan is an author, artist, musician, satirist and independent researcher, best known for the book, Puzzling People: the Labyrinth of the Psychopath, along with his writings on socio-cultural engineering, propaganda and the influence of late Victorian occult societies and policy think-tanks upon the creation of both Fascism and Bolshevism, and the paralysing shadow these aristocratically created and cultivated symbiotic ideologies have cast upon the face of humanity. In the first hour, we'll talk about cultural Marxism as a corrosive force in Europe that piggybacks on the environmental movement, the gay rights movement and other minorities to further its cause. Then, we'll discuss Germany as the heart of Europe and those who sought to create a new kind of German, a mechanical man. Thomas talks about the making of a Bavarian Bolshevik and a great psyop that took place in Germany. Later, we discuss how Europeans have been fractured by Semitic traditions and archetypes. In the member's hour, Thomas elaborates on the extraordinary heritage of Europeans, which is diverse and should be celebrated not shunned. He talks about how European folklore, sagas and mythology help to change consciousness. Also, we discuss disinfo coming out of Hollywood surrounding European history and the psyop of the "White man's burden." We'll talk about Irish slaves, the American Civil War and re-examining history. Later, we'll discuss the portrayal of the "dumb White man" as well as the Marxist instigated war between women and men. At the end, Thomas elaborates on winning the culture war."

No Lasting Change Comes Without Paying a Price

Last weekend I attended a local convention--CONvergence--as I have for most of its 16 years running. I did so in large part to that convention being the nexus where a lot of friends I've made over the years come together, allowing us to keep in touch by sharing real time together (instead of social media posts). It's one of the largest fan-owned, fan-run, general-interest fan conventions in North America; over 6000, all of them members of the convention community, are in one big hotel for a long weekend.

So, what does this mean for Empires?

Well, one of those that regularly attends--and this year was (at last) a Guest of Honor--is a good and long-time friend of mine, the novelist and fantasist Scott Lynch. Despite being quite busy, as is usually the case (on between a dozen and a score of panels, book signings, etc.), he made time at the end of the convention to sit down and have lunch with me in the hotel bar. We talked about a fantasy novel I've had in the works since January, and the feedback--which he, as a working and successful novelist, I value greatly--he gave during our somewhat unfocused conversation was enough to fill in the blanks that I needed, coupled with an offer to read what I have ready when it's ready.

Well, never wanting to let a good friend down, that got my ass in gear. However, there is only so much time in a day and only so much attention I can give at any time. The bottom line is this: the readership for this 'blog, of the three that I maintain right now, is the lowest and has the shallowest scale and scope. If I must shut one or more 'blogs down to make time for this novel, then Empires is first to go. It is disappointing, to a certain extent, but the analytics make it clear that this move would be the least painful.

If this is to happen, I will make it known on the final post so you few that do read are not left hanging, and I will instead find another avenue to satisfy the need that this 'blog fulfills. All things that begin must end, and many end without warning at all; those who end with some warning to that fact are the lucky, and I daresay blessed, for it. This includes Empires; such is the way of all things. That doesn't meant that I cease to seek Empire's fall, or that I wish you to cease seeking it; find another way, as I am now, and we'll cross paths again somewhere down the road.

Red Ice Radio - Vahan Setyan - Hour 1 - Armenian Roots of Civilization & The Armenian Genocide

Their Description:"Vahan Setyan has been examining world mythology, language and civilizations for the last decade. He is an independent researcher and regularly collaborates with scholars and researchers in various fields including anthropology and Armenology. He continues with his collaborations with Armenologists and historians around the world to further examine, decipher and reveal most of the prehistoric elements that continue to be hidden within the Armenian highlands, the Armenian language and their revolutionary effects on human civilization and languages. He has contributed to articles on ancient mythology, ancient Armenian history and its language. He is the author of "Enigma of the Armenian Alphabet: Letters, Protons and Paradoxes," a book that seeks to reopen a perspective into the world of antiquity and its languages, which has been generally hidden, disregarded and overlooked for more than 120 years. In this program, Vahan explains Armenia as a root for human civilization and languages. He tells about skewed studies of history and how Indo-Aryan civilization and language migrated from the Caucasus and the Armenian highlands to other parts of the world. He outlines linguistic connections to other ancient high cultures. We'll also discuss Armenian pre-Christian traditions and what happened when monotheism arrived with violence and bloodshed. In the second hour, we speak about the neglected atrocities of the Armenian Genocide. Setyan talks about the Ottoman Empire, the Young Turks and those who were pulling the strings behind the scenes and organizing these atrocities. Is there an ancient tribal war being waged to this day? Later, we discuss how Armenia and Europe alike are facing massive problems with Islam and what needs to occur for us to reawaken to our ancient heritage."

What It Will Take: Most Won't See The Truth Until It's Too Late

This weekend, I am attending--as I have for most of the last 16 years--a local fan convention by the name of CONvergence. No essay this week; I will be too tired after coming home from four days of high energy and activity to do it, so here's a video that nonetheless addresses the topic I had in mind for today. This is from SGT Report, so adjust your filters to account for silver bug talk, but nonetheless the point--that American economic functionality is a fraud, kept up by gangsterism at the macro level and micro-level bullshiting you would not believe, and cannot long endure--is sound and should be heeded.

The Rise and Fall of the Bankster Part 1. Competition Is A Sin

Okay, this is from a Silver Bug outlet, and they are doing this as a promotion, but they're dedicated to telling some hidden (but verifiable) history that needs to be told. As the intersection of business and activism goes, this is a benign one.

It Is Time To Make Changes At This Place

Now that we are past the midway point of 2014, I think it is time to pause and consider what I want to do with this 'blog.

By now I have a short list of go-to people whose videos, articles, etc. consistently meet my standards for reliability, quality, and usefulness. I find it interesting to see that most of the content originating elsewhere that I curate and connect to during the week and on Saturdays comes from those sources. While useful to me, I think that I should reconsider making outright posts of this stuff instead of just adding the regulars to a 'blog roll on the side, and instead focus my curation efforts on connecting you readers to all of the good stuff that I find- but yet is not popular or has not yet found itself an audience.

The other thing I think I need to reconsider is that, at this time, there is little formal structure to the content that I post here. This is, I think, doing more harm than good for the 'blog at this time and I should institute some form of structure to the content. At the very least, I should impose a schedule and use that to focus my attention (therefore, my efforts, and in turn your attention) on a far more manageable range of topics. This, I think, is a good way to resolve an issue that I have right now.

That issue is a lack of perceptible impact. Audience size, scale, scope, etc. are consistent- and consistently low and shallow. I think that I can solve this problem through a review of what I choose to curate, what I choose to exclude, and find within those niches a place for myself. This will not happen within a week; I have plenty to do that has nothing to do with this 'blog coming up this week, and I have other things competing for my attention through the first two weeks in July. So, while you can expect things to change they will not happen immediately or immanently.

The goal, however, is the same- to make Empire fall.
