An open letter to Europe's leaders: "F*ck the EU" was an insult, not a command!

Dear leaders of Europe,

In a socio-political-economic-military bloc like the EU, consisting as it does of 28 countries and 24 official languages, communication can be a problem. Although most speak English or understand it to some degree, nuances of the language can perhaps be difficult to pick up. So I propose to clear up a particular nuance that has obviously been misunderstood by most of you.

On December 13th 2013, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, said to the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt the words "F*ck the EU". Now this was immediately interpreted by you all to be a command coming from the US boss in Washington to "f*ck the EU". The problem is - and here good knowledge of the English language is useful - that Victoria Nuland was insulting you, dear leaders, and all Europeans. She was NOT commanding anyone to "f*ck the EU", but the fact that you appear to have run with her suggestion is evident for all with eyes to see. The devil's advocate in me would suggest that she most likely meant it both ways; that is, both as an insult and as a command. BUT, at the very least, you should have been insulted and not taken it as a command.

You may protest and say that you didn't take it as a command, in which case I will refer to a few examples that demonstrate how you have. In all fairness to Victoria Nuland, it didn't start with her command/insult, but the destruction of Europe has definitely gone ballistic since she provided you with renewed enthusiasm.

What is Europe doing?
I remember first reading Sebastian Haffner's Defying Hitler back in 2009. It shook me to the core to read about one man's experience with Nazi Germany, and the persecution he experienced simply trying to maintain his common sense during days of utter darkness. So many lies were taken at face value by his peers, until they finally changed and it became dangerous to speak to them. A tipping point was reached. It became impossible to speak out, despite the fact that social life continued on "as normal". History has recorded what followed. Speech could prove lethal, just as lethal as having the wrong religion, ethnicity, or skin color.

Sebastian's memoirs gave us an insight into what experiencing life under 'the totalitarian beast' looks and smells like. As an American I'd felt the strange change myself, from 9/11 to the expansion of the War on Terror, Homeland Security, and Total Information Awareness. Now 'The Scum' is not the Jew and the Communist, but the "Islamo-fascist".

We knew that a modern "Defying Hitler" would not have a Hitler to defy. It would not have a Bush, or an Obama, or an Osama, to defy. We were always treated to some new terrorist, evil dictator, or conspiracy. There were no symbols, like the Swastika, soaked with the blood and dread of a generation.

Worshiping at the Altar of Pus: How putrid matter is the alpha and omega of vaccination

Vaccination, the holy sacrament of allopathic medicine, is a crime against humanity. Under all circumstances, they are neither safe nor effective. By their very nature they bypass the natural laws of immunity and are antithetical to health. Vaccination is an assault upon everyone who accepts it, and it has left a trail of debility, disease and death in its wake. This grotesque ritual is one of the greatest scams foisted upon citizens of the world.

Most truly health-conscious researchers know that vaccines contain very hazardous ingredients: Aluminum, polysorbate 80, formaldehyde, aspartame, benzethonium chloride, glutaraldehyde, thimerosal, MSG, squalene, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide and phenoxyethanol, just to name a few.

Additives aside, what about the vaccine 'seed'? How do scientists acquire the main ingredient? What is the process of procuring the viruses used in this deadly concoction? While researching vaccine production, it struck me that the main ingredient seems to just appear out of nowhere. The virus is just there. It's taken from somewhere and grown in something. It's attenuated (reduced in virulence), or not, 'purified', strained and mixed with additives, and voila!... a vaccine is born.

But that is not the whole story. It doesn't explain how virus samples are collected and cultivated. The high priests in the Cult of Vaccination would have you believe that there is a Virus Fairy making deliveries to labs around the world, but there isn't. I don't know about you, but I don't believe in the Virus Fairy. This stuff has to come from somewhere.

At our house, the most interesting conversations take place around the breakfast table before we begin our day's work. The topics range from weird animal behavior to politics and everything in between. (Hmmm... in fact, "weird animal behavior" and "politics" may have more in common than one initially suspects!) Well, anyway, this morning the conversation led to an observation by one of the family members that everything is like I described in one of the chapters of The Wave some 16 years ago, that we can look out the window and see cars passing, birds hopping around, people going about their business as though everything was still the same, but it isn't; and knowing that it isn't the same can have a profound, visceral effect on a person.

In The Wave, I was addressing the issue of becoming aware, via collecting evidence and connecting dots, that our reality may be/must be embedded in some bizarre 'hyperdimensional reality', and that we live our lives similar to the example given by Plato in his story of The Cave. Reading about such things as Platonic realms of ideas is an interesting intellectual exercise, but for me, and many others, it is a visceral experience. Anyway, the passage in question goes as follows:

Nous sommes Charlie! The death of freedom and innocence

Some of our favorite covers.
If anyone doubts that the attacks on Charlie Hebdo were personal, they are deluding themselves. This hate crime has rightly shocked the entire world, and it sounds a wake up call that the people of the world need constant vigilance in the face of terrorism.

While some may think that the French State could have done a bit more to stop these attacks, we see that they are making honest efforts to curb the liberal attitude that makes terrorism such an effective method of attack. Many people are mobilising to do more than just condemn terrorism, but to take an active role in weeding it out and ensuring the future prosperity of humanity.

The Mystic vs. Hitler, or Fritz Gerlich's Spectacles

I've often wanted to get my hands on the German newspapers of the time before and immediately after Hitler came to power so as to try to understand what was really going on in Germany at that moment. I wondered if we could draw any lessons from it for our present time. I've asked many people if they have ever seen any such articles reproduced anywhere, or have they heard of them, and I've always drawn a blank on that question. After all, if we suppose that our present time has any similarity to the Third Reich of Hitler, it would be nice to have some concrete material that was written in real time, at the time, on which to base comparisons. As it happens, a guy named Ron Rosenbaum was curious about it too but for a different reason. He interviewed a Holocaust survivor who mentioned an article that he remembered from the time, and Rosenbaum went looking for it. He found a lot more than he bargained for. He found Fritz Gerlich and the Munich Post. Rosenbaum calls Fritz and his ilk the "First Explainers."

Thomas Cole: 'The course of empire - destruction' - 1836
President Eisenhower, in an internal discussion, observed to his staff, and I'm quoting now, "There's a campaign of hatred against us in the Middle East, not by governments, but by the people." The National Security Council discussed that question and said, "Yes, and the reason is, there's a perception in that region that the United States supports status quo governments, which prevent democracy and development and that we do it because of our interests in Middle East oil. Furthermore, it's difficult to counter that perception because it's correct." 1
While the West has been waging a war on terrorism over the past 13 years, the ordinary Muslim people of Middle Eastern countries have born the brunt of the devastating effects of that war. The war on terror has involved the invasion, occupation and bombing of only Middle Eastern nations. The countries in question - Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Palestine - had no significant standing armies to counter any offensive, and the Western attacks were, by definition, attacks on the civilians of those nations, some of whom took up arms in a futile attempt to resist. In Iraq alone, 2.7 million Iraqi Muslims, most of them civilians, have been slaughtered as a direct or indirect result of the 'war on terror'.2

Charlie Hebdo: France's 9/11

Image
In the last few days since the mass shootings at the offices of the Parisian satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, and a Paris Kosher supermarket which left 17 dead, France has seen massive demonstrations in support of the victims and their families, a catchy but misplaced meme of solidarity with the slogan "Je suis Charlie", and a string of anti-Muslim hate speech and attacks. The head of the French National Police is warning of "further attacks", the government is pushing a hard-line stance in the war on terror, and the country is on red alert. Some are calling it France's 9/11. That could be closer to the truth than they intend to convey by making that particular connection, assuming anyone knows the real culprits behind the 9/11 attacks.

To see why, first let's take a look at the Paris attack, the suspects, and what the media has been telling us about them.

SOTT Summary Video - December 2014: Extreme Weather, Earth Changes, Fireballs, High Strangeness

Mother Nature was apparently determined to see out 2014 with a bang, ramping up the extreme weather and Earth Changes in December. Snowstorms buried cities in Russia's Far east and Northeastern China, where a waterfall on the Yellow River partially froze. Japan was hit with record-breaking snowfall for the second time in a year, while a deep freeze in Northern India claimed at least 150 lives.

A week of non-stop electrical storms brought hail, flooding and widespread damage to Sydney, Australia, while a huge sinkhole swallowed three cars in Melbourne. Fish and whales continue to turn up dead in large numbers on coastlines and in freshwater lakes and rivers, thanks in part to increased volcanic activity, demonstrated above ground in December via eruptions in Indonesia, Mexico, Iceland, Cape Verde, Hawaii and Japan.

Drought-stricken Sao Paulo was inundated with rain, turning streets into rivers. Waterspouts appeared in Australia and the Mediterranean, a tornado hit downtown LA for the first time in decades, while another 'unseasonal' tornado outbreak in the U.S. South killed 5 and left dozens homeless. The "worst flooding in decades" hit Southeast Asia, especially Malaysia and Sri Lanka, where some quarter million people had to evacuate their homes.

A trail of storms pummelled the US West Coast, with landslides, mudslides, blizzards, and flash-flooding washing away homes and roads. Across the Atlantic, a so-called 'weather bomb' hit the UK and Ireland, bringing monster waves and hurricane-force winds. This was followed by a big freeze that brought blizzards to Western Europe, the Balkans and the Mediterranean, where Malta received its first snow in over a half-century.

Spectacular meteor fireballs were filmed over Puerto Rico, Brazil, the US, Canada, Spain, and Japan. So-called 'mystery' booms shook homes in communities from the US to the UK. An incredible UFO sighting in Santiago, Chile, and the appearance of a bright glowing 'plasma light' over Lima, Peru rang in the New Year.

Buckle up for 2015; it's gonna be 'interesting'!

Meet Alexei Navalny: The U.S. State Department's inside man for 'regime change' in Russia

Alexei Navalny, "anti-corruption" campaigner or U.S.-sponsored controlled opposition?
In recent months it's come to light that the U.S. government and allied Western powers have arrayed all of their economic, social, political, martial, and propagandizing forces against Russia and the leadership of its president, Vladimir Putin. Some of the policies, strategies and approaches towards destabilizing Russia are out in the open. Some less so. But this is where it gets most interesting. For while it was fairly easy to spot some of the aggression aimed at Russia from without, seeing it occur even more covertly from within is another story. Which brings us to some recent news.

The western media is now carrying the story of a protest on the streets of Manezh Square in Moscow which occurred on Tuesday, December 30th. At the center of the rally was Alexei Navalny, self-proclaimed "anti-corruption" blogger and head of the largest opposition movement of the leadership of Vladimir Putin and his administration in Russia. Navalny was just convicted of defrauding a cosmetics company of about $440,000 and given a suspended sentence of 3 1/2 years. Relating to the same case, his brother, Oleg, will be sent to prison for the same period of time. In 2013, Alexei Navalny was also tried and convicted of embezzling over $500,000 from the state-owned timber company Kirovles, where Navalny worked as a volunteer in 2009.
