Lizard News – How fake news media portrays Trump revealed laptop info to Russia

CIA specializes in what-the-butler-saw-style of spying.

White House sources: Trump may have leaked intelligence info to Russia

Trump: Psst… Lavrov, you want some top-secret intelligence info about laptop bombs.

Lavrov: If it’s from CIA, no thanks.

I Told You So: A defensive Modi had advance knowledge of voting (tampering) results when he asked his ministers details of their demonetization promotion efforts

Even though “electronic” voting machines were used, it took weeks, instead of a day, to finish voting.

After the elections in Punjab, the American embassy seems to have told Modi that most votes have been cast against the BJP-SAD coalition. To avoid being blamed for the loss and expecting the same in UP elections, Modi tried to put his cabinet detractors on the defensive. He asked for details of tours if any conducted by them to raise support for demonetization. The reptilians seems to have told Modi, they weren’t going reverse the Punjab verdict because the incumbents were thoroughly hated. It wasn’t worth the effort.

In Uttar Pradesh, the Congress made the mistake of allying with another hated incumbent party and that created scope for getting away with tampering the foreign-made EVMs chips. Unfortunately for BJP, their vote bank was totally gone. Not a problem, said the reptilians. Modi had done well with treasonous demonetization and national ID swindles and had won their approval. Like a treat for a good dog, the reptilians seem to have initiated largescale tampering of the EVMs. Even before the voting was over, Modi let the cat out of the bag with his “electric [electronic] shocks” statement (https://moralvolcano.wordpress.com/2017/03/06/modi-unwittingly-reveals-electronic-tampering-of-voting-machines-by-us-embassy/). Modi got votes even in Muslim-majority areas.

If they could get away with vote tampering in the general elections, the reptilians could effect the same in a handful of states too. (https://moralvolcano.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/want-proof-that-rothschild-evm-s-elected-modi-rather-than-people-of-india-bjp-sweeps-assam/) But, how can they do that after after demonetization?… Remember, Uttar Pradesh is like Bihar a state where huge numbers of casual laborers had become jobless and/or had to return from other states because of demonetization.

Not a problem! In America, the reptilians feared an armed revolt after Trump said he will not accept the result if it went against him. Yet, even though they let him win, they gave the popular vote to Schmillary Clinton. In comparison, India is a docile country where the population does not have guns to challenge the government.

Have you noticed something else? Amazing how that schmuck Modi has so suddenly overcome his own doubts and become more eloquent on demonetization than before. Modi is even calling for more humility in his party. That’s hilarious!

Everything about this government is fake. It wins fake elections. It fakes GDP numbers. It gave fake reasons for demonetization – to reduce India’s gold demand (reptilians are running out of physical gold and had to unwind massive long positions in crude oil) and to give payments banks-led cashless transactions a lift up (very few licenses were picked up). They wouldn’t admit that they didn’t have the brains to smoothly & efficiently implement a demonetization plan.

You know they are stupid because they are still refusing to print the 1000 rupee note, which is an important denomination in terms of transaction volumes. All they had was the willingness to accept orders from abroad. As a result, the economy is stuck in reverse gear. Most people are spending only on basics and cut back on discretionary spending. The good thing however is that digital transactions are going to fall and the fantastic dream of a cashless economy will revert back once enough cash percolates into the economy. My people will return to their old ways.

Modi is daydreaming and believing in his own lies. That is why RBI refuses to reveal details about returned currency notes. More than expected amount has been returned to banks and RBI will most likely falsify those numbers and justify the stupid/useless exercise.

EU is a fascist dream! So, all hail, “The EU is dead! Long live the UK!”

Without trade deals, how is China still the biggest trading nation in the world?

NEWSCLIP-BL-Britain-exits-European-Union-in-Brexit-vote

I used to hate the Brits for colonizing India but now I have forgiven them. The Brits voted for independence, and freed themselves and future generations from the tyranny of a villainous super-state called the European Union (EU).

In the 11th century, William The Conqueror (from Normandy, France) occupied England and instituted the feudal system. While much of the population became as serfs to nobles, the Jews he brought with him were exempted. Like Jews in ancient Palestine, Jews got themselves exempted from the law of the land. Jews became direct subjects of the King. By the 13th century, Jews had ruined their welcome. As traditional moneylenders (Christians were forbidden by their religion to charge interest), they were not particularly liked by the people. There were many accusations of ritual murder in which children were found murdered, often drained of all blood from their bodies. Some of these children are still worshiped as saints in many parts of Europe. Some 350 years later, Jews were formally allowed back into England by Oliver Cromwell, who had beheaded the King Charles and instituted a military dictatorship. While Cromwell’s complaint was that Charles had ignored the Parliament, he ruled more or less like a king without a formal crown on his head. Under Cromwell’s “Commonwealth”, the feudal system remained intact. Jews continued to charge high interest and squeezed out competitors in various trades. Some nobles may have changed but as a class their wealth and privileges continued.

PHOTO-EU-president-Schulz-questions-the-wisdom-of-the-crowdComing to recent times, the EU has grown into a lumbering overarching bureaucratic state. Bit by bit member states have had to cede their sovereignty to the mandarins in Brussels, Belgium. Members states had to give up everything – from jobs to control over trade and immigration. But the EU left royal families, nobility and landed gentry untouched. They would be anachronism if EU had to proceed further as a real super-state.

Although UK was a member of the EU, it had not ceded all of its sovereignty. It continued to have its own currency – the Sterling Pound, and did not have to follow many EU conventions. As an internationalist, the Prime Minister of UK, David Cameron wanted to UK to subsume into the EU. In this, he faced opposition from the old guard in his party, whose loyalties lie with the royalty and the upper class of British society.

To bypass opponents in the Conservative Party and go ahead with full EU integration, Cameron called for a referendum – the Brexit. A pal of his, Boris Johnson, seems to have been given the task of preventing the likes of Nigel Farage of UKIP (UK Independence Party) from hijacking the Brexit Leave vote. During the run-up to the vote, a known supporter of Palestinians and unfortunately a supporter of the Remain campaign was, let’s say, sacrificed for maximum advantage. (In France or Turkey, there is always a terrorist attack whenever the politicians in power are not doing well in the popularity charts.) To make matters worse, YouGov published a poll in which weeks of Leave campaign advantage was reversed and the Remain campaign was shown as in the lead. This was the reason why voter turnout was high.

Given such high turnout, the writing was on the wall. But the globalists had to show that Remain campaign was not in a minority. Hence the final tally showed a difference of just a few percentage points.

If the Leave camp was in a minority, then the turnout would have been low. The television images of rapefugees from Middle East and boat people from Africa had created indelible impression that UK and the EU was under an invasion. Instead of stopping the influx, German government were getting them to stay. As it became clear that Germany would not stop refugees, millions of illegal migrants started invading the borders of the borderless EU states. These illegals were everywhere – inside bus stations, railway stations and highways. When they were stopped, they started attacking. In Germany, Sweden and other countries, rapefugees started mounting sexual assaults on women. Instead of arresting them, authorities wanted citizens to take precautions. Churches were asked to remove the crosses when refugees were housed in them. Citizens living in state housing complexes were asked to leave to make way for refugees. Near the English Channel, illegal immigrants had stopped trains, trucks and other traffic.

The alien invasion came at a time of financial turmoil in EU states. EU integration and free trade had destroyed the manufacturing base of these countries. Countless factories and businesses had shut down. Jobs had become. Housing and education was becoming more and more expensive by the day. Despite all that, anyone opposing the illegal migration was immediately branded as a Nazi. Politicians and journalists were making bold-faced lies about the alien invasion and its response. It seemed that system had failed. The referendum captured a revolt in the making.

Is it the end of the world now? Hang yourself if you want!

Before the refrendum, everyone from the Janet Yellen to the EU to the IMF was claiming that Brexit would be catastrophic. After the refrendum, nothing happened. Sure, stockmarkets crashed but they are still trading higher than the week before.

Will Brexit be bad for the UK? UK is broke. It can’t get out with the EU as a millstone around its neck.

No. Britain was not a full member of the EU. It continues to have its own currency, which trades freely in the market.

Despite the fact that EU regulations are already like mountains, the group is still in its infancy. EU member states still have national parliaments and are sovereign states.

The globalists initially sold the public that the EU was just a common market for goods. Over time, the customs union was followed by a common bureaucracy, powerless common parliament, a common currency, common regulations, common court…

In recent years, EU states have been suffering from financial turmoil. It was caused by poor lending practices, low interest rates and unpayable private/public debt. With the common currency, national governments were unable to guide their economies.

The solution to the financial turmoil in EU, as suggested by the globalist kleptocrats, was now a common fiscal union. A fiscal union means national parliaments are obsolete and no longer in control of their budgets. With each crisis, the kleptocrats have showed no sign of slacking. They were moving the EU super-state project even further. UK was facing doom in the EU, as are other remaining state within the union. The EU bureacracy already operates in an opaque manner. The total secrecy with which the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) treaty was being negotiated is proof. In the US, the kleptocrats were guiding the American government on similar lines with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Even as the American public and legislators were denied access to the draft and minutes of the negotiations, US president Obama claimed that his country (and not China) would be writing the rules of international trade. (In India, Modi government has put Nirmal Sitharam on a similar secret deal called Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership  (RCEP) with Asian and Oceanic countries. The EU is part of a larger World Government project and Modi is a small pawn in it. Because Indian media is clueless about TPP and TPIP, there is no media discussion on the ill effects of RCEP. Instead, they are loudly agonizing over a useless NSG membership.)

INFOGRAPHIC-EU-is-fascism-in-disguise

EU is a fascist dream. UK is better off without all that red tape and bureaucracy.

How can UK trade without trade deals? Trade without trade deals is free trade!

Nations should be able to regulate their trade. Trade deals are bondage agreements. UK does not need trade deals to trade in goods or services. The biggest trading nation in the world is China. It has a huge pool of slave labour and it is destroying manufacturing nations all around the world without any fancy trade deal.

Many European countries like Norway and Switzerland already trade with EU states without enjoying the “benefits” of being a EU state.

Will not Brexit affect stockmarkets? Not any more wobbly than it is already!

The effects of Brexit will not be immediate. Cameron has delayed Brexit until October when he resigns. The new Prime Minister has two years time after that to negotiate the exit. UK can sign new trade deals with individual EU nations if it wants to. EU leaders say they want a quick UK exit but they will try to make it difficult for the UK to exit and will make it a long-drawn-out process, lest it encourage other nations to leave.

If other EU nations do not provide duty-free access to UK exports, then UK can impose duties on their exports too. This will also help restarting the manufacturing base in the UK while shoring up revenues for the government. EU needs the UK more than UK needs Europe.

Will not Scotland want to leave? Sturgeon is a Merkel!

Earlier, I would have liked Scotland to leave the UK. Now, I don’t. Small nations are easier to exploit. What happened in Iceland and Greece are good examples. If Scotland wants to leave Great Britain be part of the EU, it will be like exchanging one master for another. Sturgeon is a Merkel in disguise, put in there like Boris Johnson for a purpose.

How can you trade the Brexit

Just how stupid were those billion dollar bets based on the last minute YouGov opinion poll! It clearly shows that pundits in the media and the markets are totally clueless when it comes manipulation of events.

Stockmarkets have become extremely sentiment-driven. They are like a cat on a wall. However, thanks to quantitative easing, a lot of government money has come into the stockmarket. It will not return unless interest rates are hiked.

Only if China stops buying US treasuries or Saudi Arabia wants to bill crude oil in other currencies than the US dollar will stockmarkets collapse as a whole in the immediate term.

Over the long term, massive corporate debt defaults are looming the US, where companies have borrowed from the market to buyback equity, which have boosted share prices. This will cause a slow downturn in the Dow. If it gets ugly, purchases of US treasuries by other central banks cannot be justified. US government will have to then devalue its currency or default on some of it debt, as I have already predicted.

You should have already bought gold as a hedge against all bad news. Stocks with good EPS and ROCE can be picked. Stocks that have run up like crazy should be avoided.

WEBPAGE-MV--Gold-Will-Be-Back

The bottom-line is that trade deals are not needed for UK to be trading. It was the unfree trade that was destroying UK businesses (the steel industry, for example). Even if other countries leave the EU, so much the better. Only when national governments have full control over their economies, can manufacturing for internal consumption (rather than exports) be able to provide enough jobs and create lasting prosperity.

India’s Broken Tryst Review – Tavleen Singh takes the hide off Karan Thapar’s back

There is no doubt that Karan Thapar is a koolaid addict of the worsk kind. Tavleen Singh says that Karan Thapar told her that her last book would have been good except for the pages about Sonia Gandhi.

Tavleen Singh tells Karan Thapar to read the book again and then do an interview.

Tavleen Singh tells Karan Thapar to read the book again and then do an interview.

Throughout the interview Karan Thapar tried to get her to apologize for being harsh on Vajpayee or Sonia Gandhi but Tavleen Singh ignored it and went on eloquently about her complaints against them.

Giving up, Thapar resorted to bad-mouthing her book and misquoting her. In her previous book,Tavleen Singh seems to have mentioned that Sonia brought new clothes from Italy for her son. Karan Thapar misquotes her by saying that Sonia brought Rahul’s old clothes for her son. What shameless attempt to put her in her place! For whom is he doing this? Somebody ought to break his butting chin with a hammer. Singh simply said he has not understood the subject and asked him to read the book again before doing an interview.

The book is titled India’s Broken Tryst. Thapar tried saying the title had no bearing on the book and it was just another of her pet collection of anecdotes and no analysis. Without losing a beat, Singh said the title was about promise made at the time of independence and every anecdote was about how various leaders have broken that promise. See this interview and you will agree that this prick should be dispatched to hell like the atheist bloggers in Bangladesh.

NDTV 24×7 becomes less than 24×7, as Indian tv news channels sell out to televangelists

Now, they are less than 24-hour news channels.

Godmen and charlatans have bought TV time on news channels. They appear as "ADVT" or like teleshopping programs.

Godmen and charlatans have bought TV time on news channels. They appear as “ADVT” or like teleshopping programs.

The CNBC people seem to be there all the day from early morning to late into the evening. Other Indian news channels do not have that luxury. (CNBC is still lucky because they, for a few hours, switch over to CNBC US programming.)

Indian news channels have sold out to godmen and televangelists.

NDTV 24×7 has made its name an oxymoron. Early morning hours are not manned by NDTV personnel but by televangelists.

On India Today channel, BrahmaKumaris and some Christian televangelists are on air well past 0630 hours.

Perhaps to provide cover for this sad state of affairs, state broadcaster has done followed suit.

What alternate media? Try some podcasts instead!

While the mainstream media paddles around in its reality-distortion field, peddling conspiracy theories from governments and globalists (such as ISIS or Climate Change) and distracting us with inane hearsay about celebutards, people are turning to alternative news websites and even podcasts for a proper perspective on what’s happening around us… Really? Are we now down to amateur MP3 recordings masquerading as media properties? Read on…

“A lie can travel halfway around the world while truth is still putting on its shoes” or so goes a quote attributed to Mark Twain. Rest assured that it is lies, not love, that makes the world go round. We live in an age of universal deceit. Big Brother is already here all but in name. Whatever George Orwell had predicted in 1984 or whatever Bertrand Russell prescribed in Icarus, or, the Future of Science has already been tried, tested and implemented in various parts of the world. In 1924, Bertrand Russel wrote:

The effects of psychology on practical life may in time become very great. Already advertisers in America employ eminent psychologists to instruct them in the technique of producing irrational belief; such men may, when they have grown more proficient, be very useful in persuading the democracy that governments are wise and good…

More sensational than tests of intelligence is the possibility of controlling the emotional life through the secretions of the ductless glands. It will be possible to make people choleric or timid, strongly or weakly sexed, and so on, as may be desired. Differences of emotional disposition seem to be chiefly due to secretions of the ductless glands, and therefore controllable by injections or by increasing or diminishing the secretions. Assuming an oligarchic organization of society, the State could give to the children of holders of power the disposition required for command, and to the children of the proletariat the disposition required for obedience. Against the injections of the State physicians the most eloquent Socialist oratory would be powerless. The only difficulty would be to combine this submissiveness with the necessary ferocity against external enemies; but I do not doubt that official science would be equal to the task.

In 1984, the totalitarian society of the future was divided into just three groups – elites (inner party), useful idiots (outer party), and slaves (proles). The most fitting example of such a society today is the one-party “democracy” called Singapore. There, only the rich (or elite) can own cars and buy land for residence. All others live in high-rise apartments. At a young age, students are channeled into two streams, the haves and the have-nots, based on their performance. The former are allowed to go to college and get white-collar jobs. They become the useful idiots. The latter can only get to polytechnic/vocation schools and eventually end up in blue-collar jobs (requiring manual labour). They are the slaves. The living costs including rent and transportation are high. Behinds its modern facade, you can just about manage to live in Singapore and be content. But, absolutely, no complaining. There are signs, posters and notices everywhere telling inhabitants what to do and what not to do. There is only one political party in town and that’s the ruling party. There is no independent media. No protests are allowed. Any gathering of more than two people in a public place needs a police permit. There are cameras and undercover agents everywhere. Judges order corporal punishment such as caning, whipping, and even whole-body confinement in a small box. The concrete jungle sticks plastic trees everywhere so that more cameras and notices could be hung on them.

One might argue that the Buddhist culture of the inhabitants makes them submissive and that it would be impractical in other parts of the world. Right? Beggar’s belief! Nobody is more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

Taking away whatever power that people have has become the main job of governments around the world. In the US, Obama is ruling by decree, issuing an unending stream of executive orders bypassing Congress. To make it a less of hassle, Obama has also allowed US federal agencies write their own rules. A good example of how this works can be learned from the Net Neutrality hullabaloo. Americans think Obama is on their side as he had opposed to any change in Net Neutrality. But, very few of them realize that it was he who who enabled the FCC rewrite and expand its mandate. In India, Modi is also doing the same with ordnances. Everyone is rushing to pander to corporates and special interests. Recently, the WTO ruled that Indian government should remove its restrictions on US poultry imports (citing avian flu concerns) because those restrictions were not based on an “international standards.” Who writes those international standards? Nameless faceless bureaucrats at the UN? Big corporations? Fascism means rule by corporates – not hounding Jews as most people falsely believe. There is no better way of bringing Fascism than by legislating every pursuit and vocation out of existence. The big tomes of most of the new laws passed by Democrat and Republican politicians at various levels in the United States are all written by one organization. I forget its name. The laws are designed to strip us off our God-given inalienable rights. The Land Acquisition Bill that is pending in the Indian Parliament is not the only one. Several of them are being pushed along or have already become law in various countries. How come all of them are moving in the same direction? The 100 smart cities that Modi promised are just rehashed versions of dense megacities like Hong Kong or Shanghai that globalists have long promoted to corral human populations into. In the pink papers, there is lot of talk about the need for land banks and the one-time stamp duty exemption sought for Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) by the new set of “technocrats” who have sailed in with Modi. These are one of many vehicles to dispossess people of their land. This kind of subterfuge requires a submissive unquestioning public. So, the old game of divide-and-rule works has been put to good effect to distract the public – males against females, homosexuals against heterosexuals, liberals against conservatives, children against parents … not just Hindus vs Muslims or Muslims vs Jews or Christians. To top it all, there is also the locals-vs-foreigners exploit to distract us. In the United States, transit through airports has become a privacy nightmare for American citizens and legitimate travelers because of the naked-body x-ray scanners and abusive TSA personnel but the southern border with Mexico has been thrown up to all kinds of illegal immigrants from Latin America. Apparently, no terrorist has yet been able to locate a travel agent in Mexico! Terrorists can come only by air; never over land. European countries have also been inundated with immigrants – Muslim and African refugees from the America’s perpetual “War on Terror”. Anyone who opposes this sly demographic attack on White Christians is called a racist or xenophobe. Decades of guilt-tripping the Whites by writers, journalists, and talking heads has made it easy for politicians to openly state that the locals are too laid back (in other words fools) and growth can only come if legal and illegal immigrants are let in. (NYT, Thomas Friedman, http://www.deccanherald.com/content/291398/more-time-hope-amp-reform.html) This has ensured that White Christians are being reduced to a minority in many cities. This goes on even as various outfits promote abortion, delayed child birth, birth control and for what it’s worth homosexualism among White Christian populations. Interestingly, while Jewish organizations and individuals are at the forefront of support for all kinds of immigration in the West, Israel seems to have had no problem evicting black African immigrants! (https://sverigesradio.se/sida/artikel.aspx?programid=2054&artikel=5750629 , https://moralvolcano.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/it-is-okay-for-israel-to-get-rid-of-illegal-immigrants-but-not-for-america/) Then, there is the drugging problem. People in the West are over-medicated. Hormones and antibiotics in food has ensured that the population is overweight from a young age. This is a self-reinforcing cycle that does wonders to the balance sheets of pharma companies. Big Pharma has not even spared children. (It is a high-growth market!) A huge number of American kids have been wrongly diagnosed as suffering from autism, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder and other psychological ailments and doped up. (Most psychotropic drugs are based on narcotics. Many of these people become dependent on drugs later in life and become delinquent.) Nurses in schools aren’t there to just administer first aid but they also do psychological profiling. In reality, they have become just another conduit for medicine sales. Speaking of schools, well, do you know that many American schools have cops stationed inside the premises? Activism by NGOs and legislative bodies have ensured that a school’s major concern is dealing with paperwork and non-educational activities. It is all coming to India, don’t worry. We need to be on par with “international standards.”

For someone who follows international news and has read a few history books, this is all quite apparent. But, for the majority of my people, I am saddened to note that they see nothing amiss. Once in a while, they find something wrong but they rarely think there is a concerted effort to subvert society as a whole. Most of my countrymen don’t read newspapers. The ones who do only skim the headlines. This is bad because editors typically rewrite headlines to make them seem less controversial and journalists hide the juicy stuff somewhere in the middle or the last paragraph. In the 90s, I used to visit the British Library regularly and I got to read several of their newspapers. At that time, British newspapers were hyperventilating about a few select crime cases. Every newspaper was literally screaming bloody murder. They seemed to be competing with each other as to who sounded the most outraged. Today, there are cameras all over the UK (even in dressing rooms and homes) and jails have been privatized. Law enforcement and judiciary works to keep the jails full at all times. (Of course, the financial terrorists in the City of London can commit no crime. HSBC had helped international drug cartels and terrorists to launder billions of dollars but no HSBC banker has gone to jail.) Legislators, for their part, have been busy writing new laws to make almost everything a crime. Even more appalling, child protection services take advantage of the slightest of excuses to grab children from their parents and put them in foster homes or government institutions (where many of them have been abused). Already, divorce rates are high and by 2016 most children will be born out of wedlock. They did not even spare the elderly. Doctors were used to implement a fiendish scheme called Liverpool Care Pathway and thousands of elderly patients were put to death. They were wrongly and prematurely declared to be dying, and then sedated and starved to death. (Daily Mail; Euthanasia by the back door: Hospitals ‘death pathway’ is open to error; http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1210848/Terminally-ill-care-scheme-death-pathway-warn-experts.html)

When I am reading papers today, I see that the same thing is happening in India. Bit by bit, almost like clockwork, everything seems to be falling into place. I don’t know if there is a way to prevent India from joining the list of broken nations but we can definitely prevent ourselves from lending support for our own downfall. A good way to start would be to read newspapers and avoid watching TV news channels. When you watch TV news, you become a passive consumer of propaganda. The news flows by you. You cannot hit pause and return to a previous paragraph. It does not let you think. When you read newspapers, don’t just read the local news or the sports/entertainment section; read the international news too. Try to read a bit of business news even if you don’t understand all of it initially. Follow international news on the Internet too. A single newspaper may not provide all the news you need or be interested in. Use RSS feeds to keep track of news from multiple sources on subjects that matter to you. For example, to keep track of GMO and monsanto in India, you can do a search for the subject in a news aggregator site such as Bing News (not Google News) and then find the RSS feed. The feed reader will then update you whenever a new article has been published on the subject anywhere on the Web.
http://www.bing.com/news/search?q=monsanto+gmo+india&FORM=HDRSC6&format=RSS

Besides the online versions of newspapers, there are bloggers and specialist news websites that can provide a different perspective on a particular subject. Then, there are podcasts… Well, I wanted to write this article as an introduction to a few podcasts that I listen to but this has turned into a long rant. Anyway, it could be a good introduction. I wanted to write this article around the time when I released by Android browser app. The app had a RSS feed reader with podcast support but most Indians do not know what podcasts are. Podcasts are popular in the United States but not in India not many people have heard them. The podcasts that I am reviewing here may not be dealing with the truth, the whole truth or nothing but the truth but they can definitely give you an international perspective on what is happening in India. Once you learn how to decipher news from propaganda, you can be on your own. Anyway, here is the list:

  • Webster G Tarpley: I had an image of Tarpley’s book Bush: An unauthorized biograpy on my blog for several years until I moved it to WordPress. The book is available free on Tarpley’s site. It is all about Bush Sr. and what a screwy character he was even before he became CIA director, VP and POTUS. There is a chapter on some assassination (Kennedy or Reagan) which is not available online. Anyway, it was a fascinating read years ago. To properly understand the book, you must also have read Victor Marchetti’s CIA and the Cult of Intelligence in which you learn that CIA runs drugs for right-wing rebels in South America, supplied Naga ultras with weapons in India, and airlifted prostitutes to IndoChina. William Blum’s Rogue Superpower would also help. Blum also documents how US government had tested chemical and biological weapons on civilian areas in the United States. Rogue Superpower has extensive footnotes and everything can be cross-checked with newspaper archives. It is so good that even Osama bin Laden quoted him in one of his video tapes. If those non-fiction books are too much for you, then I suggest you go with a fiction primer – novels from the now forgotten Jonathan Black who wrote books such as The World Rapers, MegaCorp, The Plunders, and The Carnage Merchants. If you read them, you will be able to make sense of the Boko Haram massacres, Rwandan genocide and the many Syrian “carnages”. Anway, I learned sometime last year that Tarpley had a podcast. Tarpley also appears on the Iranian Press TV and the Russian RT. Unlike the rest of this list, Tarpley is a regular scholar with a PhD. He is a historian and speaks several languages. He had worked in Italy/Moscow where I think he mentioned a retired KGB general met him and gave him a lot of information for further investigation. It seems to have helped him write something on the American hit on Italian president Aldo Moro and also about Bush family. He also written book on 911 and Obama. 911 Synthetic Terror is the better one, where he has reviewed every bit available evidence and looked at all possible angles. The Obama book is a disappointment in comparison. His language is clean, except when he refers to chocolate king and Western puppet Poroshenko of Ukraine as Pornoshenko. Tarpley was an associate of Lyndon LaRouche. LaRouche runs the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), which publishes a lot of good commentary on strategic affairs. William Engdahl also writes for EIR. LaRouche has documented a lot of material critical of Jews and/or Israel and blamed them for everything ill with the world. (Not many people realize the global kleptocracy is run by people from all races and religions.) As a result, LaRouche he was ignored by mainstream media when he ran for US presidency. (They wouldn’t even mention that he was in the race.) Tarpley now supports the Tax Wall Street Party and other small groups that are trying hard to fight the two-party system that works more or less like the World Wrestling Entertainment company. Tarpley recommends a small transactions tax on financial trades, as a way of making Wall Street pay something. He has also taken up the cause of a Rev. Pinkney, who has seems to have been incarcerated by the owners of WhirlPool corporation. Apparently, a black-majority company town had been taken over by the corporation. They managed to do this by making the town pay for a white elephant water infrastructure project, underwritten by Wall Street. The project made the town bankrupt and it was put under the financial administration of a Wall Street lackey by the governor of Michigan state. One of the tactics used by the town to terrorize black residents was to grab children when water bills were not paid. When the bills were not paid, the water supply was cut off. The water company then informed the child protection services who reasoned that children would be starving if there was no water. This went on for a while until Rev Pinkney started organizing the community. They turned the pipes back on after the officials turned them off. This got him on the wrong side of the corporation, which wanted take over the town for real-estate projects. When Pinkney tried to organize a recall petition against the mayor, the corporation/administration found some issues with the documentation and then arrested him for falsifying the papers. Since then, Pinkney has been in jail fighting his case. Obama, who makes political capital out of any race issue, has been of no help. Nobody from the mainstream media has taken otice. The black residents of Benton Harbor has been thrown to the whims of a corporation. Tax Wall Street Party is fighting his case and survives on small donations. Tarpley canvases support from listeners. At other times, Tarpley digs up a lot of little info that seems otherwise impossible to find. I learned from his show that Victoria Nuland’s real name was Victoria Noodleman and that Ed Snowden originally worked for the CIA before he went to work for NSA. There are no ads in this podcast. There is some humour in the podcast, the sauve sophisticated kind but he keeps it to a minimum. For some stupid reason, he supports illegal immigrants and thinks infrastructure projects (white elephants) are good way of creating jobs. He hates all republicans and just about tolerates democrats. Tarpley was opposed to Romney as a future President and went into great lengths as to why he might be the prophesied Mormon conduit to take over America. Mormonism was started by an outrageous polygamist American named Joseph Smith and taken forward by another polygamist named Brigham Young. It borrowed a lot of ideas from Christian Bible, Talmud, Freemasonry, Eastern mythology and what seems like his Smith’s fertile imagination. Joseph Smith created a new Bible called Book of Mormon. He tried to run for US presidency and was lynched to death for his troubles. On all other counts, I agree with Tarpley.
  • William (Bill) Cooper: Cooper is no longer with us. He was killed in a shootout with the police after there were complaints that he brandished a gun at some troublemakers near his residence. Cooper was an officer in the military when he says he stumbled up on some government documents that lead him to the world of conspiracies. Later, he started broadcasting on short wave and focused on globalist kleptocracy, secret societies, history, Bible, Jesus and other matters. In many broadcasts, he quotes extensively from published and secret archives of secret societies. These broadcasts are now archived on his site as audio files. In these files, you will hear him gold (not gold funds or company shares) and dried emergency food supplies to fund his operation. He also encouraged others to follow him and showed how they could use short wave broadcasts to bypass the mainstream media filter.
  • Alex Jones: He is the enfant terrible of the conspiracy world and he is probably the most successful. When I first heard about him, I went to WikiPedia where it was said that he had foreseen 911 in a vision. I thought he was a crackpot and forgot all about him until I saw the video of him falling on Piers Morgan like a tonne of bricks. I instantly liked him. I tried to listen to his podcast on InfoWars.com but found him to be speaking in an extremely agitated manner with absolutely no humour. Strangely, I mentioned this to someone and sometime after that Alex Jones started adding a bit of humour in his broadcasts. He played some extra music and made himself a bit more tolerable. The USP of his shows are his guests. Government employees, whistleblowers, and victims of government/corporate wrongdoing come on him and pour their heart out. His sites are visited by millions of readers and he gets a lot of tips and disinfo. Jones has all the conspiracies on his fingertips and it is very difficult for people to bamboozle him. His show has a lot of ads including male/female enhancement pills, dried food stuff (emergency food rations for future economic collapse/shutdown), and water filters for removing flouride, chlorine and other chemicals put in by utilities. He also has a fledgling news team. They do create original material and cover news stories that mainstream media tries to avoid such as the open border gates at the Mexico border. One day, I saw a TV documentary where a crocodile taking a neat bite off the back of some beast. The next day, Alex Jones quotes Churchill and recreates the same scene I saw on TV. Maybe we both saw the same documentary on the same day but it was too freaky. I stopped listening afterwards. Jones tries hard to be recognized like a legitimate news source but he can’t help peddling strange stories about the elites. He vehemently denies this when people in the mainstream media mock him with their own made-up stories about him, say, about giant bats residing under the United Nations building. However, I remember one episode in which he said he met Karl Rove, the Bush advisor/mentor, at a party. He says Rove made some strange noises that made him doubt he was really a human being. Jones says Rove would speak like a normal human being at one moment and make some weird animal-like noises in the next. Jones said he was overwhelmed by a desire to flee and their meeting did not last long afterwards. He is also on record stating that he had sneaked into Bohemian Grove where the elites of the world perform satanic rituals. (He took a photo to prove it.) Although people in the mainstream media mock him, he says Hollywood regularly consults him on their film projects. Like many people in this list, Jones operates out of Austin in the right-to-work state of Texas. Alex Jones has hinted there are people in his family who were probably Freemasons (they had showed him the ceremonial dress). He has also stated that there are people in his family with military and intelligence background. Bill Cooper, the original conspiracy theory broadcaster had awarded Alex Jones a crazy nutball award.
  • Texe Marrs: What I know about Texe Marrs is from what he has said about himself. He used to work in the US Air Force. He was for sometime assigned with the task of keeping track of advanced technologies with military implications. Then, he says he had a calling and became a preacher. He also was taught at psychology at some Texas university. He has written several books on Freemasonry and other satanists/globalists. He has also produced videos on the “evil elites”. He is the only one in this list who dares to name the Rothschilds as a purveyor of evil but he however doesn’t say they are the sole purveyor of all evil. Someone listening out of context to his shows might mistake him for a Jew-hater. Even I thought so but Marrs pulls no punches and calls a spade a spade. Sometimes, there is no two ways of dealing with a subject and the Jews in question are guilty as charged. Marrs is a Christian first and foremost. A Muslim or a Hindu might be offended by what he says sometimes – that we worship the Devil. But, he is a preacher and that’s his brief. Marrs also publishes several books on his own that mainstream publishers wouldn’t dare to touch. Protestantism founder Martin Luther’s Jews and their Lies would be a good example. He also sells cassette tapes and CDs of his podcasts. His ministry also runs a children’s home and says all profits from his publications goes to his ministry. His podcasts are very entertaining, as he reviews the news and technologies used to enslave us. However, he also covers the use of sexual perversion in secret societies and the use of sex baits and blackmail by Israeli organizations in the United States. This makes it awkward to listen to his podcasts in the presence of others, particularly women and children. Being a preacher, his language is clean, although I have heard him once tell someone to shove his filthy ideas where the sun doesn’t shine. Texe Marrs also works from Austin. He was opposed to Mitt Romney as a presidential candidate. Romney is a leader of the Mormon community and many including Marrs feared he would promoted by the influential group as the prophesied Mormon messiah who would drive America to an extreme (with the US Constitution “hanging by a thread”) and then “save” it sealing the fate of Mormonism as the prevailing faith in all Christendom. It did not pan out and Obama got reelected. On all other matters, I agree with Texe Marrs.
  • Max Keiser: Max is not a podcaster. He has his own show on the Russian broadcaster RT. He was for a brief time with BBC World News. The Keiser Report videos are available on his blog MaxKeiser.com. Max focuses on the financial terrorists of Wall Street and City of London and explores their scams and scandals. Max was a trader on Wall Street and later hosting shows related to entertainment and stocks. His shows are extremely entertaining and hilarious. His show features Stacy Herbert in the first half where they review news items that rarely get attention in the West, for example, Western funds investing millions of dollars on non-existing Chinese firms or Davos running out of limousines and aircraft parking space during the climate change summit. Max sometimes makes off-color jokes. In the latter half, he interviews a financial analyst or commentator. Both parts are extremely entertaining and informative. He also engages in activism. Max is also friends with Alex Jones and George Galloway. It is difficult to gauge how serious he is with his campaigns. For example, he wanted his followers to buy silver to short JP Morgan’s position on the metal. JP Morgan manages the gold reserves of several countries. It wouldn’t have matter if half-a dozen countries ganged up to short JP Morgan. JP Morgan stole Iraq’s central bank and Libya’s central bank. Ukraine’s gold is said to have disappeared. The other issue with Max is bitcoin. Bitcoin is every bit as opaque as the Federal Reserve’s or Bank of England’s IOU system of money. Why would bitcoin be a better option? One of the reasons why bitcoin was touted as safe was that no government could confiscate your bitcoins. This has proved to be false. One bitcoin exchange have collapsed after hackers stole their bitcoins. A contrabran drug site using bitcoins as currency was taken down by US Feds who now have become the biggest holder of bitcoins. Given the way Max promotes bitcoin, I have come to think that he is the notorious Satoshi Nakamoto, the alleged founder of bitcoin. Before becoming a broadcaster, Max Keiser created virtual currencies for his Hollywood Stock Exchange, that is, back in 1996.
  • No Agenda: This started with “no jingles, no music and no agenda.” Now, it has all three. It was the first podcast that I began listening to and it is very entertaining. Former MTV VJ and podcasting pioneer* Adam Curry teamed up with PC Magazine columnist John C Dvorak to start this podcast as freewheeling conversation about news and stuff. At that time, Curry was living with his first wife in London. He was also running his company Podshow/Mevio with VC money. (It recently ran out of money recently and shut shop. Curry admitted that there was no way to make money of a network of podcast shows.) To me, it seems that he had upset someone in the kleptocracy with his conspiracy stuff and they seemed to have blown the lid of his affair with another woman. It lead to his divorce and he started soliciting donations for the show. After his divorce, he started living with his new girlfriend. And, they seemed to have dived head first into conspiracy world, living off very much like Alex Jones fans – water filters and dried food. In one episode, the conversation goes like this:

    AC: And I… I got to tell you. I like David Ike. I buy into a lot of what he is talking about but I have never… I’ve always had a little… little bit of trouble with the reptile stuff. From time to time…
    JCD: It does explain a lot though like… I mean THEY LIVE FOREVER, THESE…THESE… ROYAL FAMILY… NOBODY EVER DIES PREMATURELY.
    AC: THEY ARE BUTT-UGLY…
    JCD: THEY ARE BUTT-UGLY. THEY ALL GO TO THE MAX. … GO TO THE OLDEST. ONE OF THE NON-REPTILIAN MOVES IN WITH THE FAMILY AND THEY’RE MURDERED!

    Today, Curry is much wiser but doesn’t like Alex Jones anymore for he is a competitor. He still uses one of their water filters but that’s it. Like many others in this list, Curry now operates from Austin, Texas. The show is more more entertaining than ever. AC and JCD compete with each other and review the news – American, international, tech, entertainment and others. It was from No Agenda that I learned that most vaccines use mercury or aluminum as a preservative or that the FBI had a three-week cycle of releasing news about a terrorist plot to attack the United States that the helped (conceive and) foil. These were stuff that slipped past mainstream journalists. There are not many places on the Internet where you can listen to AP reporter Matt or British politician Nigel Farage speak the truth. The show is not suitable for listening in the company of others, certainly not among women or children.

  • Tax Justice Network: I started listening to this very recently. The voice of the presenter is so smooth that it could have been created by a computer.
  • Gnu World Order: This podcast is not about the odious New World Odour people. It is a podcast about Linux and FOSS alternatives for a No World Order in computing.

Albatross or millstone? Times Of India once again gets its metaphors mixed!

image

First line of frontpage story on #Jayalalithaa story makes hilarious reading! “Yes, albatross around the neck! Sounds good!”

Read the poem dorks! It’s all in the mind. A millstone around the neck slows you down, makes you uncomfortable and prevents you from doing anything useful – putting it mildly. The mariner’s albatross was something rankling his mind and mind alone. It was attributed by his fellow sailors to have brought them ill luck.

Nobody at the paper corrected them. They went on and on about it.

Times Of India tweets like mad with the albatross mixed metaphor.

Times Of India tweets like mad with the albatross mixed metaphor.

 

Going on & on about it! It shows how stupid the whole lot is. I read somewhere that a lot of good have left the paper, which was never very good except commercially, after some lizards took over.

See, these guys couldn’t write English even if someone gave them a stencil and some black paint.
