Shayler: ‘Blair was an MI5 agent’

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

Digging around over the last couple of days, I came across this post from October 05 concerning more details about what David Shayler knows and has revealed.

Tony Gosling – 15Oct05 – BRISTOL

This story was to be found neither on UK Indymedia or on Bristol Indymedia as neither appear to be working properly. I spent 30 mins. or so attempting to publish this on both without success, seems this is a scoop Indymedia aren’t interested in.

Ex anti-terrorism officer David Shayler came out with an interesting revelation when stuck in Bristol recently.

There has been much speculation as to how the most right wing and powerful elements in the Labour Party used to be such left wing radicals. Did they have a change of heart? Apparently not, according to Ex MI5 Counter-Terrorism Officer David Shayler.

It would also explain why the spooks have been so busy trying to blacken Shayler’s name.

Ex MI5 anti-terrorism officer David Shayler, who spent three days with us in Bristol recently, when his car got brake failure while parked up at the University, said at his Cube cinema presentation that he had access to information contained in Blair’s Security File while in ‘the service’.

“Tony Blair worked for MI5 before he became Labour leader.”
Evening Post reference http://tinyurl.com/d9b32

The day after Shayler was arrested in France the Mail on Sunday came out with the Headline ‘Shayler Could Bring Down Government’.

On the Monday, Shayler says, Blair Summoned the editor to Downing Street and asked him into the Garden (to avoid bugs) demanding to know what Shayler knew about him (Blair).

The editor wisely explained that due to a government injunction he could not tell Mr Blair anything that Shayler knew or he’d be breaking Blair’s government’s own injunction.

Blair, according to Shayler, had documents in his file which clearly meant he had been spying on his comrades in CND and The Labour Party before being made Party Leader – which explains his so-called radical left activities as a young man – he was a spy reporting back on Communist ‘subversives’ in CND and in the Labour Party!

Shayler says his secret state agent past would make Blair utterly unreliable to hold public office – particularly in the Labour party and would make him a puppet of the hawks in MI6. The same hawks I guess who cooked up the dodgey dossier at our expense which has been used to kill nearly 150,000 Iraqis and open the gates of hell in the Middle East. (oh yes and boost the profits and margins of every single Western Arms business leaving not enough to pay our pensioners and treat people on the NHS properly).

If what Mr Shayler says is true (anyone have any doubt?) and given the history of whats happened in the Labour party, this country and their effect and influence in certain regions of this planet, over the last 15 years.

There is no ‘power’

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

“Power is very rarely limited to the pure exercise of brute force…. The Roman state bolstered its authority and legitimacy with the trappings of ceremonial – cloaking the actualities of power beneath a display of wealth, the sanction of tradition, and the spectacle of insuperable resources….Power is a far more complex and mysterious quality than any apparently simple manifestation of it would appear. It is as much a matter of impression, of theatre, of persuading those over whom authority is wielded to collude in their subjugation. Insofar as power is a matter of presentation, its cultural currency in antiquity (and still today) was the creation, manipulation, and display of images.”

Klingon Bat’leth confiscated by Police as ‘Deadly Weapon’

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

Klingon Batleth

Police confiscated a Klingon Bat’leth in a raid on a house in Gloucestershire. It was subsequently used by them to promote the nationwide knife amnesty that was taking place in the UK last month.

Is it REALLY possible that not a single police officer in Gloucestershire has never seen Star Trek TNG?

Is it REALLY possible that not a single journalist that was spreading this story has never seen Star Trek TNG, and did not point out to the police that …. using a Bat’leth to promote a knife amnesty is … very funny.

This piece comes from HELLO magazine.

Please do not ask me what I was doing reading it.

Comment is pointless

Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

This [Guardian: Comment Is Free] site is like the temple of a new religion where followers shriek and howl themselves into a maniacal trance. The Guardian is now more a mad cult than a newspaper.

[…]

The Grauniad is being treated like a mad cult by it’s posters who imagine that they are ‘contributing’, and not really being duped into believing that their opinion counts.

The Guardian itself is simply thrashing about trying to convince itself that it retains it’s importance, generating statistics of user interaction rates and the like to argue it’s case. Unfortunately for the Guardian, these users are naught but middle-brow sheep deluding themselves that they are more important than readers of the Sun. But the Guardian knows this.

And so do you. You’ve been told before.

But I can’t point you to where… ‘cos I don’t know how to use the internet!

Return To Sender

Old news department, or a taste of how NIR information will be implemented. I emphasise.

A FYLDE coast student was arrested after posting Christmas cards to his family

Stunned David Atkinson found himself at his local police station under suspicion of stealing the festive greetings he last saw when he put them in a postbox five years ago. Due to fingerprints found on the mail – which was stolen then recovered – police thought they had their man. However, it transpired the “suspect’s” fingerprints were those of the student who had innocently sent the cards to relatives when he was 15.

Mr Atkinson, now 21, of [address omitted – gosh, to think that his address was posted online after this, mm], was arrested because his DNA and fingerprints had been kept on record under controversial Government laws to combat terror.

It was only after Mr Atkinson asked officers to look more deeply into the crime his innocence was proved.

The law student said it has shattered his confidence in the system. He said: “The potential incompetence, laziness, or over enthusiasm of an individual officer means an innocent, law-abiding citizen can never truly have confidence in the giant police database.”

It was the second time Mr Atkinson had been arrested – twice for crimes he did not commit. He has now lent his support to a campaign to force a rethink by the Home Office.

The mix-up began last March when Mr Atkinson was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage – but, when the real culprit gave himself up to police, he was released without charge.

During his short time with the police, he had his fingerprints and DNA taken as part of the arrest procedure but, under recently passed laws, all details – no matter whether the person is innocent or guilty – are kept on a national computer.

Mr Atkinson thought nothing of it until he got a call from officers a month later asking him to go along to the station. He said: “I was arrested as soon as I went in. “The officer told me he had a computer report which had automatically matched my fingerprints with those recovered from a number of items of post which had been stolen from a letter box in December 2000.

“As a result of this report alone, and no further investigation, the officer advised me to ‘get the matter out of the way quickly and take a caution now’.

“After refusing to admit a crime I’d not committed, I was bailed while further investigations were made.”
“The recovered letters were in fact my family Christmas cards which had been taken after I had posted them five years ago.
“This innocent explanation had not even crossed the officer’s mind and, as far as he was concerned, if his computer report said I was guilty then I had to be.”

Mr Atkinson complained to Lancashire Constabulary and eventually received an apology. But, he claims, without the Government’s “menace to our freedom”, he would not have been put through the ordeal. A police spokesman said: “We can confirm that we did receive a complaint in August about a wrongful arrest concerning stolen post. “This was investigated thoroughly under our normal complaints procedure and dealt with locally to the satisfaction of both parties. “Under current legislation, all police forces can retain and record DNA taken for arrestable offences no matter what the eventual outcome of the investigation.”

It’s a takeover, pure and simple.

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

WASHINGTON — The government has abruptly ended an inquiry into the warrantless eavesdropping program because the National Security Agency refused to grant Justice Department lawyers security clearance.

The Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility, or OPR, sent a fax Wednesday to Democratic Rep. Maurice Hinchey of New York saying it was closing its inquiry because without clearance it could not examine department lawyers’ role in the program.

“We have been unable to make any meaningful progress in our investigation because OPR has been denied security clearances for access to information about the NSA program,” OPR counsel H. Marshall Jarrett wrote to Hinchey. Hinchey’s office shared the letter with The Associated Press.

Jarrett wrote that beginning in January his office has made a series of requests for the necessary clearances. Those requests were denied Tuesday.

“Without these clearances, we cannot investigate this matter and therefore have closed our investigation,” […]

I’m not making this up. Clearly all bets are off, and next, the gloves have to come off.

Freedom for all or none

Monday, May 8th, 2006

Your treatment of an educated historian is beyond belief. You have persecuted David Irving just for having a thought process that differs from yours, in other words your thought police have struck again.How dare you jail a human for expressing free thought, because as free people, free thought is our right.If you disagree with what David Irving has said then I challenge you to dabate this issue with him, i.e. a confrontation of evidence provided by both side with an independent ‘judge’. Somehow however I think you have not got the guts for that.The free world condems your thought police and your repressive thought laws.

http://www.petitiononline.com/DavidI/petition.html

The pathetic Guardian is baying for some Egyptian Bloggers to be freed from gaol and for everyone to write to the Egyptian Government to make it happen; a ‘lights on’ commenter pointed out that David Irving was in jail just for thinking wrong thoughts, and that everyone should support him also, to the usual scripted written and unwritten howls of ‘he should burn in hell’.

It does’nt work like that. Either all are free to write or none are free. You cannot selectively support freedom of speech. Of course, The Guardian considers brown skinned people, the chinese, South Americans en masse etc as a sort of pet that needs to be protected, wheras Irving is a ‘full human being’ who really ‘should know better’. That is their nature.

They should be pressing for the absurd laws in the UK to be put down. They should be pressing for David Irving to be released immediately. Better that they should solve their own problems before they tell other people how to live.

Lead by example should be the motto, but Britian can scarcely do this anymore as it turns, at the hands of a very criminal few, into the very sort of country people died to prevent it becoming.

Roll Call of Shame – The Future

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Look at the record of who voted for this shameful bill:

The Conservative Home Affairs front bench voted with the Labour Government !

David Davis
Edward Garnier
Patrick Mercer

Most of the Conservatives seem to have abstained, with only a few “rebels” actually voting with the liberal Democrats against the acceptance of compulsion to register on the NIR, and to pay £30 even if you do not choose to be issued with an ID card

Interestingly these include Adam Afriye, the only black Tory MP for Windsor.

It seems that David Cameron’s Tories cannot be trusted on civil liberties issues any more than Michael Howard’s Tories could.

[…]

http://forum.no2id.net/viewtopic.php?p=23712#23712

And the full list is here:

http://www.spy.org.uk/

No one should be surprised that the tories have voted for this; they also voted for the illegal colonization of Iraq. The fact of the matter is that NONE of these people can EVER be trusted. Democracy is hopelessly broken, and the only way for you to be free is if you TAKE your freedom by force.

All the MPs wailing about the abolition of parliament bill and how bad it is will no doubt cave in on that one also, secretly relishing the unlimited power it will give them should they come to office.

It is clear that Britain is being dismantled before our very eyes. What you have to decide is what sort of country you want to live in, and how you are going to make that country come into being. Its no good sitting trying to tweak the system as it is; the greatness of Britain used to depend on the gentelemens agreement that power should not be abused. As soon as murdering gangster garbage got elected, ie no gentlemen in office, the system could be used to roll out near instant tyrrany, since there are no checks and balances that can stop any law of any type being passed, including laws that abolish parliament, sell our soverignty to other countries and even call for the murdering of humans.

Clearly all the people now in charge and the corrupt system itselt needs to be thrown out and proper checks and balances need to be installed so that an ID cards bill, any bill diluting the sovereignty of the British nation etc etc becomes an absolute impossibility.

Nothing less than this will suffice. Otherwise, we will be forever beating off further attempts to enslave us, even if we beat the ID cards bill and anything else these nightmare manufacturers can dream up.

The first step is to completely disobey any law that violates our freedom. That means absolute refusal to enter into the NIR. Second, the physical and unauthorized dismantling of the nascent surveillance system, ie no more CCTV trained on public places, and no more cameras watching the roads. Period.

Failing to do precisely this as a first step means total failure.
Then we must create a document (watch this space) that outlines our rights, categorically and unambiguously.

If you are not willing to do this, and then live by it, then you might as well give up and allow Soviet UK to swallow you up. Half measures will not do the job. There is no room for compromise. You can either live free or become their property.

Charles Clarke can fuck off and die in a fire

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

As you can see, the feeling is widespread:

They are breathtaking, brass-necked bastards, these people, and it disgusts me beyond my powers of expression that I breathe the same air as any of these two-faced, contemptuous cunts. Christ, he’s not even bothering to hide the truth now the Lords have fallen for his “compromise”:


Identity cards will be made compulsory if Labour wins the next election, Home Secretary Charles Clarke has said.

The current scheme is for all passport applicants from 2008 to also have to get an ID card – although people will have an ID card opt-out until 2010. But Mr Clarke said he plans legislation after the next election to make it compulsory for everyone to get a card, whether or not they have a passport.

Mr Clarke said he did not think the opposition would be able to stop the scheme because by 2010 a “large number of people… should either have cards or hope to have cards”. “I would be very surprised if the next Conservative manifesto said ‘stop the scheme’. It would be very difficult to do,” he said.

In other words, soothe us with assurances that the cards would be voluntary, time their rollout so that they are entrenched by the time of the next election, and present us with a fait accompli which cannot be reversed. Mendacious fucking bastards. I hope they all burn to death in a freak series of fires, with the Safety Elephant taking days to die of his injuries. […]

And these are the people who have blogs…many people who are not detectable by the blogosphere are absolutely incandescent with rage.

From the linked BBQ article:

‘Background checks’

The government is launching a new Identity and Passport Service on 1 April, incorporating the existing UK Passport Service, to administer the scheme.

Interviews will begin “later this year” for passport applicants.

People applying for passports will have to visit their local passport office where they will be interviewed, fingerprinted and have “background checks” carried out on them.

Their details will be entered on to the database and they will be issued with an identity card, although they will not be forced by law to carry it.

About 80% of the UK population has a passport and all will have to be renewed within the next 10 years, at an initial rate of about 7 million people a year, a Home Office spokesman said.

Mr Clarke was not willing to set a date for ID cards becoming compulsory, saying it would depend on the rate at which passports were renewed, he told reporters in a briefing at the Home Office as the current plans became law.

So on Aprils fools day, the insanity will start. Note how Clarke says that the date for the cards becoming compulsory depends on the rate at which passports are renewed, ie the rate at which people register. If people do not register en-masse, the system will fail completely.

This is why I keep saying that it is crucial that no one register for this madness. Now is the time for the facts about renewing your passport are published, so that people understand that there is no requirement for you to have a ‘valid’ passport to leave the UK.

It’s immanent!

‘UFO sighting really took my breath away’

By Carron Taylor

WAS it a bird? Was it a plane? No, it was a shining silver pyramid, according to two colleagues who spotted a UFO in the skies of Putney last week.

Michelle Medhat was sitting at her office desk last Wednesday morning when she glanced out of the window and spotted a glimmering silver object in the sky.

“I thought what the hell is that?’ There were no clouds in the sky at all and 100 per cent visibility.

“The sun was hitting the object and you could see it was turning very slowly.

“I did get a feeling there was something strange about the thing,” she said.

Entranced, Michelle signalled to her colleague Peter Gardiner, 53, to take a look.

He said: “At first I thought it was a big piece of rubbish or a clear tarpaulin sheet.

“But then it glistened and it was shiny. It had a strange pattern of movement. It was a significant size, possibly the size of a roof or even a house.”

The pair watched it for a couple of minutes, rotating in the distance and heading towards Wandsworth Town. Then, as soon as it had appeared it vanished.

Michelle said if it was a piece of rubbish it would have caused severe damage when it came down, because of its size and density.

“I can’t explain it and therefore I’m calling it a UFO. It took my breath away. It did feel weird.

“The more I looked at it I realised there was something not quite right. It wasn’t moving like anything I’ve ever seen before,” she said.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said it had not been notified of any sighting of the pyramid.

“The MoD does not have any expertise or role in respect of UFO/flying saucer’ matters or to the question of the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial lifeforms, about which it remains totally open-minded.”

He said it examined the reports of UFO sightings it received solely to establish whether what was seen might have some defence significance, namely whether there was any evidence the UK’s airspace might have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised air activity.

Michelle and Peter said there has been a lot of activity in the skies over Putney recently.

Michelle said they had seen several Chinook helicopters over the past week and believes something must be happening.

Chinooks are used to transport troops, artillery, supplies and equipment, but also used for operations such as medical evacuation, disaster relief and search and rescue.

When travelling to Putney, our reporter saw what looked to be three Apache helicopters travelling east.

A spokesman for the MoD said the helicopters were probably part of general aviation traffic over London and there was no specific activity or event they were involved in. He added such movements were “not unusual”.

This is London Local

Chinooks are flying over that part of London regularly. They make a very distinctive sound, and you can tell they are coming when they are miles away.

As for this pyramid account, well, when I saw that logo above whilst trawling around (as one does) I just couldnt resist!

On the bourses

Thursday, March 9th, 2006

As the originator of the “Iran Oil Bourse” I hope you can spare me some space to comment in relation to Ms. Berg’s recent articles.

The original concept five or so years ago was not of an “Iran Oil Bourse” but of a “Middle East Energy Exchange” providing a new Gulf benchmark price which would not be manipulated by investment banks and oil traders – as is the case with the North Sea “Brent” crude oil complex and has been for at least 10 years.

It makes no sense at all – and never has – for crude oil coming out of the Gulf and going to the Far East to be priced against a North Sea benchmark – but Brent has always been used since it is the “least worst” solution.

From personal experience – including very high level conversations – I think that there is no prospect whatever that Iran would unilaterally attempt to create a crude oil benchmark contract whatever currency it may be priced in. A domestic market in products, petrochemicals, and so on, is another matter.

The current global market in oil is owned, controlled, and operated by intermediaries for their own benefit and is fast deteriorating – as I warned it would five years ago – into an “ICE-bound” (ICE = Intercontinental Exchange, currently completing an audacious but brilliant strategy by applying the coup de grace to NYMEX) global monopoly extracting ever increasing profits at the expense of producers and consumers. Barclays Capital recently estimated that intermediary profits from commodity markets (of which energy is a huge component) will double to $26bn in the next three years.

Moreover, this market is now awash with hedge fund money, and despite Ms. Berg’s confidence in NYMEX and IPE/LCH, I believe that these centralized institutions face little-appreciated systemic risks as “single points of failure” in the face of the unregulated, opaque, and massive off-exchange, or “OTC,” market in energy and energy derivatives.

The difference between the LTCM near-meltdown in the financial markets and an energy market crisis this winter or next is that the Fed can’t print oil to bail out the system.

In relation to clearing, Ms. Berg is unfamiliar with the concept of a “Clearing Union” because no partnership-based “enterprise model” (i.e., legal and financial structure) enabling one has ever existed. Naturally, market users would have to back up a mutual guarantee in some way, whether through margin, collateral, or otherwise.

It’s just that there isn’t the “central counterparty” Ms. Berg is used to.

In a nutshell, I believe that the future lies in the creation of a neutral global oil trading network and “Energy Clearing Union” owned by ALL market constituencies: and this concept is beginning to get across. Certainly the Norwegians were interested in it: “Norwegian Bourse Director wants oil bourse priced in euros” – a development which followed a paper I submitted at the request of their consul-general in Edinburgh.

~ Chris Cook, formerly a Director of the International Petroleum Exchange and now a member of the Wimpole Consortium tasked with creating an energy exchange for Iran

1.9 Trillion

AT&T’s 1.9-Trillion-Call Database

This whole article is worth reading, but I found this tidbit particularly interesting:

He was alluding to databases maintained at an AT&T data center in Kansas, which now contain electronic records of 1.92 trillion telephone calls, going back decades. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital-rights advocacy group, has asserted in a lawsuit that the AT&T Daytona system, a giant storehouse of calling records and Internet message routing information, was the foundation of the N.S.A.’s effort to mine telephone records without a warrant.An AT&T spokeswoman said the company would not comment on the claim, or generally on matters of national security or customer privacy.

But the mining of the databases in other law enforcement investigations is well established, with documented results. One application of the database technology, called Security Call Analysis and Monitoring Platform, or Scamp, offers access to about nine weeks of calling information. It currently handles about 70,000 queries a month from fraud and law enforcement investigators, according to AT&T documents.

A former AT&T official who had detailed knowledge of the call-record database said the Daytona system takes great care to make certain that anyone using the database – whether AT&T employee or law enforcement official with a subpoena – sees only information he or she is authorized to see, and that an audit trail keeps track of all users. Such information is frequently used to build models of suspects’ social networks.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was discussing sensitive corporate matters, said every telephone call generated a record: number called, time of call, duration of call, billing category and other details. While the database does not contain such billing data as names, addresses and credit card numbers, those records are in a linked database that can be tapped by authorized users.

New calls are entered into the database immediately after they end, the official said, adding, “I would characterize it as near real time.”

According to a current AT&T employee, whose identity is being withheld to avoid jeopardizing his job, the mining of the AT&T databases had a notable success in helping investigators find the perpetrators of what was known as the Moldovan porn scam.

In 1997 a shadowy group in Moldova, a former Soviet republic, was tricking Internet users by enticing them to a pornography Web site that would download a piece of software that disconnected the computer user from his local telephone line and redialed a costly 900 number in Moldova.

While another long-distance carrier simply cut off the entire nation of Moldova from its network, AT&T and the Moldovan authorities were able to mine the database to track the culprits.

[…]

http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2006/03/atts_19trillion.html

Decades woth of telephone calls, stored and searchable. Who wants to bet that they are using some of those Google appliances to serach through them all.

Now, imagine for yourself, the 8000 Trillion records that the UK NIR will accumulate, and what a goldmine it will be for everyone except the public. Every ounce of alcohol sold, every parcel posted, every aspirin dispensed, every car, train, plane and boat journey…everything that ever happens that is done by a human.

AT&T is a private company, and look what they have done, without any oversight, no ones explicit permission. Imagine this in the hands of government.

Now we know what the true inspiration for TIA and NIR was; AT&T.

The Jonestown Death Tape (FBI No. Q 042) (November 18, 1978)

Thursday, March 2nd, 2006

An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide or murder of over 900 members of the cult.

Author: The Rev. Jim Jones, et al. (The Peoples Temple cult)
Date: 1978-11-18 00:00:00

Notes

I acquired the source cassette tape c. 1979 from a high school friend whose father was an FBI agent.

The sound levels were increased as close as possible to clipping when I transferred to CD-R from cassette and then normalized to -18 dB average RMS power (loudness) in Sound Forge after extracting from CD-R

An interesting web site for further research is the Jonestown Institute (http://jonestown.sdsu.edu/), which contains transcripts as well as commentary on this and other recordings recovered by the FBI from Jonestown
