  • I will observe that we now have seen two Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft that have come to an ill end at approximately the same altitude.

    I’d have to point out that we have not seen two Malaysian airliners, we’ve now seen one, the other, if there is another, is still missing.

  • Sorry to have to say this again, and yes, it is speculation; I think we just found Malaysian Airlines flight 370. There are very powerful people absolutely committed to stoking this fire, as irrational as that is, and they will stop at nothing. It should also be clear by now that they don’t just leave [...]

    Sorry to be so late to answer Kate, It seems like the last six months is the period I’m talking about. I’ve heard mentioned in the past that the trains are not supposed to tie up rush-hour traffic if at all possible, but there’s been a regular mess every day around 5pm at a crossing [...]

    I live in the Twin Cities in Minnesota, where in my estimation, train traffic in my neighborhood has about doubled, much of it long trains with a lot of tank-cars. Some of these trains are passing through my neighborhood at rush-hour, and tying up traffic to an insane degree. I’ve been thinking that maybe it’s [...]

    2014-06-22 12:59:50View | Delete

    I found a remarkable article/interview mentioned on the Links page over at Naked Capitalism on Friday.

    Quotes are from Nafeez Ahmad’s article in The Guardian;

    Nafeez Ahmad interviews Robert David Steele, ex-Marine, ex-CIA officer, and proponent of what he calls Open-Source Intelligence.

    Steele sees a revolutionary change about to happen, a change he calls the open source revolution, and which he thinks is made inevitable by the fact that people are waking up to the fact that the current power structure is built on a foundation of lies, manipulation and every kind of deceit.

    “For Steele, the open source revolution is inevitable, simply because the demise of the system presided over by the 1% cannot be stopped – and because the alternatives to reclaiming the commons are too dismal to contemplate. We have no choice but to step up.”

    The decision making system related to the current power structure is fed the information it requires by intelligence organizations they’ve come to control, and of which they require a steady stream of lies and dis-information, all of which is supposed to remain hidden from the public by the techniques of extreme secrecy.

    “So how does open source everything have the potential to’re-engineer the Earth’? For me, this is the most important question, and Steele’s answer is inspiring. “Open Source Everything overturns top-down ‘because I say so at the point of a gun’ power. Open Source Everything makes truth rather than violence the currency of power. Open Source Everything demands that true cost economics and the indigenous concept of ‘seventh generation thinking’ – how will this affect society 200 years ahead – become central. Most of our problems today can be traced to the ascendance of unilateral militarism, virtual colonialism, and predatory capitalism, all based on force and lies and encroachment on the commons. The national security state works for the City of London and Wall Street – both are about to be toppled by a combination of Eastern alternative banking and alternative international development capabilities, and individuals who recognize that they have the power to pull their money out of the banks and not buy the consumer goods that subsidies corruption and the concentration of wealth. The opportunity to take back the commons for the benefit of humanity as a whole is open – here and now.”

    Steele, in short, says the current, greedy, dishonest, and amoral decision-making system based on a co-opted, super-secret and clandestine intelligence apparatus is about to be over-turned by an Open Source Revolution whose decision-making systems are based on open source intelligence gathering, that is, intelligence based on information freely available in the public domain, available to anyone willing to do the work necessary to find it.

    I’m starting to think that what I’m reading when I read Firedoglake, Naked Capitalism, Angry Bear and Truthout, for example, may be the products of that truth-based, open-source intelligence apparatus that Steele describes.

    It’s taken some years, but I think that my former, confused and mal-formed understanding of the world, the one created and nurtured, at least in part by the efforts of corrupted MSM, and national intelligence services has been supplanted by a much more accurate, and truthful understanding gained, so far, by reading and interacting with the fine folks I find online.

    Taken individually, even though the work of folks like Thomas Piketty, flaws and all, may not contain as many answers as we would like, but it inspires the right kind of questions, not the leading questions of propagandists, but the honest, open-ended questions the PTB are so afraid of.

    Piketty may not have hit the bulls-eye, but at least his labor isn’t spent on the dis-honest reinforcing of the myth that has been perpetrated on us.

    I think the people are developing a taste for the truth.

    How are you gonna feed them lies once they get a taste for truth?

    On a related note; did you ever wonder why tobacco, whiskey, cannabis, and morphine, all renewable, botanical substances, are so highly taxed and controlled, while non-renewable petroleum products are subsidized and promoted? I think it’s because they are all virtual currencies, and offer an alternative to near mandatory participation in the good-old-boy’s monopoly market free-market. I [...]

    You’ve sort of hit upon one of the main problems surrounding this situation. Not everyone is allowed the choice of deciding to believe money is not money. Most of us are limited to a world where money is always money, only some of us, very few, are allowed to behave as if money is not [...]

    People like the Kochs have been pretty clear that they want it all.

    Lately I’ve been wondering what makes the small business owners think they are immune to the squeeze.

    What are those fine free-market Americans gonna do when there’s nothing to sell and no one to sell it to.

    They can’t dance.

    Everybody now just has to make up their mind. Is money money or isn’t money money. Everybody who earns it and spends it every day in order to live knows that money is money, anybody who votes it to be gathered in as taxes knows money is not money. That is what makes everybody go crazy.

    The Deepwater Horizon wasn’t just another oil well. The link is to one of my diaries from 5/5/2010. The information I shared at that time has been widely ignored, even though it’s technically public knowledge. In short; the spill has not been properly understood as the result of BP trying to drill into the Macondo Prospect, [...]

  • Eliot Roger’s parents were concerned that their son was possibly planning a violent, reactionary attack on women, based on what he percieved as their collective guilt in dis-respecting his manhood.

    So they called the police, the virtual supreme instance of white male-supremacy groups, who upon interviewing Eliot, find him to be a regular guy, maybe even a kindred spirit.

    They probably counseled him to lay low with the online stuff because you-know, political correctness and all that garbage…

    Next comes the affluenza defense.
