The euro, then, closed at 1.1904 dollars compared to 1.2024 the Friday before. Gold in euros would be 465.56 euros an ounce down 2.2% from 475.63 the week before. Oil closed at 61.84 dollars a barrel, down 5.7% from $65.37 at the close of the previous Friday. Oil in euros would be 51.95 euros a barrel, down 4.7% from 54.37 for the week.

The yield on the ten-year U.S. Treasury note closed at 4.58%, up five basis points from 4.53 the week before.

With gold down substantially, oil down even more and the dollar up a bit against the euro, it looks like a good week for the imperial economy.

Reaping The Genetic Whirlwinds

For hundreds of years, the New World was the dumping ground for the misfits and criminals of Europe. The indigenous peoples of the Americas were their first victims. Will those who once cast off their rejects now stand up and face the consequences?

Hello Vatican, Europe, Britain, Africa and all of those other nations and authorities who used the "New World" as the dumping ground for their undesirables, their criminally greedy, their power mad, their intolerably dishonest, their delusional, their mentally deficient and dangerously violent members, for well over 300 years. We, the tattered, surviving remnants of the more than 500 Nations of Free and Independent Peoples of North America, once numbered approximately 300,000,000 souls before Columbus arrived. We were less than 10,000,000 within two generations after his departure, and entire Nations of us, some among them the most ancient of us, were wiped out, their civilizations destroyed completely. Next we were deliberately betrayed and exterminated, wholesale, for some 300 years thereafter, until today only a sad, official remnant of some 2,500,000 of us survive, with an unofficial estimate of as many as another 5,000,000 to 7,500,000 acculturated and living legally classified as white or black among the general U.S. population due to the racist, U.S. government established and enforced "blood quotas" designed to ever limit and diminish our numbers. We defy you to name to us any Peoples upon the face of this Earth who have endured more injustice, or for so long, and have, to this day, received so very little acknowledgment or awareness of it in the global Human community and consciousness. In order to satisfy your ancestors' lusts, and the lusts of their descendants for wealth and power and land, the largest genocide in known human history was committed against us, and it has never truly ended. For over 100 hundred years it was the official U.S. government policy, and, before that, for the previous 200 years or more, it was the official policies of the various or serial British, French, Dutch and Spanish colonies. To this day, your nations, your governments continue block all of our repeated attempts to file suits and seek redress for their crimes against us in the World Court. Now, we, the survivors of your genocides have a message for you.

SOTT Podcast: Channeling and Alien Abduction

SOTT Podcast Logo
In our latest podcast, we discuss another one of the more interesting hypnotherapy cases from the early days of the Cassiopaean Experiment with Laura Knight-Jadczyk. Laura describes a session she conducted during her years as a hypontherapist, complete with audio clips from the session itself. This time around, it seems the problem is not demonic possession, but an apparent alien abduction. It's another hair-raising podcast!

Preparing the World For Another 9-11

What are we to make of the "furore" surrounding the publishing of anti-Islam cartoons by Dutch and French daily papers? The intent seems clear enough - to portray Islam, and therefore all Muslims as fanatic terrorists, and to provoke Muslim groups to confirm for the world that this portrayal is accurate - which is exactly what has happened. Flag and effigy burning has already ensued in Pakistan, Indonesia, and the Palestine territories. In Iran, hundreds of thousands of worshipers staged a protest demonstration against the insulting cartoons, shouting "Death to America," "Death to Israel" and "this insult will not remain unanswered."

Abortion, Psychopaths and Mother Love

The other day a most interesting post was made to our modest little guestbook/forum as follows:
First of all, congratulations on your site - your work is admirable. Lately I have found on it one more piece of a puzzle I have been trying to put together for years.

The basic question goes like this: why does it seem necessary for the powers of the week to put down women to such an extent? An urgent sub-question is: why is George W. Bush so hellbent on taking away not only women's rights generally, especially reproductive rights?

Now, we already know some of the rather self-evident answers: a state oriented towards war and domination NEEDS babies, most of all babies born from poor and uneducated families, in order to have a) people willing to enlist in the army and b) cheap wage workers - it will be very important to have a lot of them when comes the time to remove unions and worker's rights. And you cannot get a high birth rate in a society where women are free to choose not to have babies. But then, that explanation is not enough.

Big Oil and Bigger Profits - Fleecing the Sheeple

Today, Oil company Royal Dutch Shell reported a record annual profit for a UK-listed company of $22.94bn. This comes on top of similarly outrageous profits previously posted by other major oil exploration companies. Exxon Mobil for example made a staggering $36.1 billion in 2005. Where do these vast sums of money come from? Check your bank balance, that might give you a clue.

Listen Up, America: It's Now or Never

Lately, I find myself in a bit of a funk. It all started with Patrick Fitzgerald riding in on his white horse and dishing out indictments left and right - at least, that's what everyone thought he would do. But that's not what happened.

There has also been a lot of talk lately about impeaching Bush and the rest of the corrupt gang in Washington. Given the rate at which things are progressing in the US at the moment, however, I suspect that in the not too distant future, I may be concluding my thoughts on the impeachment idea with another "But that's not what happened".

The question I keep turning over in my head is this: is it that not enough Americans can see what is going on in the US of A, or is it that enough Americans see, but aren't doing enough?

It is easy to see how the former could well be true. American society has always been one of ideals and saviors. The reality of the situation never mattered as much as the fact that one was working toward that ideal job or ideal moral plateau. Nowhere is this more evident than in the extreme religion that the Bush gang uses to garner support in its battle against a different "extreme" religion. Indeed, we might notice that "extremism" is the word of the decade. While many Americans seek saviors to preserve their way of life, the Bush gang warns of "dangerous extremists" - you know: "the Devil himself is at work here!" It's the black and white view that is so loved by the psychopaths in power, and it is one that has unfortunately been adopted by the masses. As long as the people believe they have a little slice of heaven, they won't want to rock the boat too much. It's all or nothing. While many citizens are pleasantly distracted by this little game, the government gets away with whatever it wants. Americans are on a "need to know" basis, and the Bush gang has decided America doesn't need to know a thing.

Propaganda Alert!

While browsing the news websites recently, I noticed an advertisement for an upcoming movie about Flight 93 that 'crashed' in the Pennsylvania countryside on September 11th 2001.

Here's the ad:
