Can you hear the creaking?

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

I appear to have hit a nerve with my call for a sceptical view of the alleged “bigger than 9/11” plot. In the UK, at least, the more serious wing of the mainstream media is beginning to catch up with the idea that all is not well here.

Still, after eight days of detention, nobody has been charged with any crime. For there to be no clear evidence yet on something that was “imminent” and “Mass murder on an unbelievable scale” is, to say the least, rather peculiar. The 24th person, who was arrested amid much fanfare yesterday, has been quietly released without charge today. Breaking news, another “suspect” has just been released too.

The drip, drip of information to the media from the security services has rather dried-up. The last item of any significance was that they had found a handgun and a rifle–neither of which could have been in any use in the alleged plot. If you were smuggling undetectable liquid explosive onto a plane, you would be unlikely to give the game away by tucking a rifle into your hand baggage.

As with the murder some years ago of the uncle of the suspect held in Pakistan, it remains a possibility that there could be some criminal activity here involving a few of the suspects, which is not terrorist linked.

As the Police immediately told the press about the guns, it is a reasonable deduction that it remains true that they still have found no bombs or detonators, or they would have told us, particularly as they haven’t charged anyone yet. They must be getting pretty desperate to announce some actual evidence by now.

This brings us to one particuarly sinister aspect of the allegations–that the bombs were to be made on the plane.

The idea that high explosive can be made quickly in a plane toilet by mixing at room temperature some nail polish remover, bleach, and Red Bull and giving it a quick stir, is nonsense. Yes, liquid explosives exist and are highly dangerous and yes, airports are ill equipped to detect them at present. Yes, it is true they have been used on planes before by terrorists. But can they be quickly manufactured on the plane? No.

The sinister aspect is not that this is a real new threat. It is that the allegation may have been concocted in order to prepare us for arresting people without any actual bombs.

Let me fess up here. I have just checked, and our flat contains nail polish remover, sports drinks, and a variety of household cleaning products. Also MP3 players and mobile phones. So the authorities could announce–as they have whispered to the media in this case–that potential ingredients of a liquid bomb, and potential timing devices, have been discovered. It rather lowers the bar, doesn’t it? This has a peculiar resonance for me. I spoke at the annual Stop the War conference a couple of months ago. I referred to the famous ricin plot. For those outside the UK, this generated the same degree of hype here two years ago. It was alleged that a flat in North London inhabited by Muslims was a “Ricin” factory, manufacturing the deadly toxin which could kill “hundreds of thousands of people”. Police tipped off the authorities that traces of ricin had been discovered. In the end, all those accused were found not guilty by the court. The “traces of ricin” were revealed to be the atmospheric norm.

The “intelligence” on that plot had been extracted under torture in Algeria–another echo here, as the “intelligence” in this current case has almost certainly been extracted under torture in Pakistan. Another police tip-off to the media was that the intelligence had been stored in plastic jars, and they had indeed found plastic jars containing a suspicious substance. It turned out the containers in question were two Brylcreem tubs. What was in them? In the first, paper clips. In the second, Brylcreem.

I told the story in my speech, and concluded with a ringing “So we must congratulate the government for saving us from a dastardly Islamic plot to take over the World using hair styling products.”

I fear the government may have taken me seriously!

I do not discount the possibility that there is a germ of something behind the current alleged plot. Will it be anything like the hype? No.
The hype scarcely lowers. On the flagship ten o’clock news last night, the BBC reported breathlessly on the United flight diverted from Washington to Boston last night, and its fighter escort. We had very earnest besuited security experts terrifying us about the dangers.

The extraordinary thing was that, by this stage, we knew definitely that this was a 60 year old woman with claustrophobia, who had a few loose matches and some Vaseline intensive care hand lotion in the bottom of her handbag. The facts reported were totally at odds with the whole manner of the “be terrified” report and the analysis being built on it. But that didn’t stop them.

It has, of course, worked. When did you last see Iraq on the news? Where is Liebermann’s defeat now on the news agenda? […]

Ariel Sharon, the incapacitated former Israeli Prime Minister, is wearing an SS uniform. A man with Jewish side locks is depicted as a vampire drinking from a container marked ‘Palestinian blood’. An Arab figure is impaled to the ground by the absurdly long nose of a man in a black hat characteristic of orthodox Jews and marked ‘Holocaust’.At their worst, the images conform to lurid western stereotypes of Iran as a hotbed of anti-Semitism, as evoked by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s dismissal of the Holocaust as a ‘myth’.

They are among the results of a competition run by the country’s biggest-selling newspaper, Hamshahri, to find the ‘cleverest’ cartoons satirising the slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis in the Second World War.

More than 200 images have gone on public display in an exhibition at Tehran’s Palestine Contemporary Art Museum. The exhibition’s opening was attended by the de facto Palestinian ambassador to Iran, Salah al-Zawawi, who has full diplomatic status in Tehran.

Organisers say they received about 750 entries from around the world, including America and Britain, as well as many Muslim countries. The winning entrant will be announced next month and will receive a prize of US$12,000 (£6,380).

The contest, condemned by Israel and Jewish organisations, was launched in February in response to widespread Muslim outrage at the publication of Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in European newspapers. It followed a series of anti-Israeli outbursts from Ahmadinejad, including a call for the Jewish state to be wiped off the map.

Massoud Shojai Tabatabai, director of the Iranian House of Cartoons which co-ordinated the project, said its aim was to challenge perceived western double-standards on free speech, which Iran’s leaders insist precludes openly debating the authenticity of the Holocaust.

‘Why is it acceptable in western countries to draw any caricature of the Prophet Mohammed, yet as soon as there are any questions or doubts raised about the Holocaust, fines and jail sentences are handed down?’ Tabatabai told The Observer.

That sentiment finds expression in a split-image cartoon from a Brazilian entrant in which a stand-up comic is portrayed performing in a venue called the West Club. In one image, captioned ‘Making jokes about Islam’, the comedian is greeted with raucous laughter. But the accompanying picture, marked ‘Making jokes about the Holocaust’, shows him being booted out of the window.

The exhibition’s other themes are a contention that the death toll of the Holocaust is exaggerated and a comparison of the Nazis’ behaviour with Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. The latter is explored in a cartoon, purportedly by a Belgian Jewish artist, in which two parallel railway lines – one marked with a swastika, the other with a star of David – merge before leading into a building resembling Auschwitz and bearing the slogan ‘Welcome home’. […]


I wonder if the Guardian printed any of these drawings…or any other newspaper running this story for that matter. hmmmmmmm!

While we are on the subject of publishing, they apologise today for publishing the name of someone who they said was arrested in the phony turrr plot, but who in fact was not arrested at all. They do not say how they made this mistake, they just say ‘sorry’. They should also say ‘sorry’ for whipping up hysteria whenever these false plots are unleashed to scare the the (half)wits out (there) of(in) the public.

And here is a TV report on the exhibition, via MEMRI.

This ten times upside down world

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching Rambo III, which I had not seen for many years.
Every scene was a jaw dropping WTF ‘can you believe it?’ moment.

That film … you MUST see it if you have not yet done so … is an upside down inside out mirror of what is happening today, with the Americans replacing the Soviets word for word and action for action. For example:

  • The Soviet commanders call Rambo ‘a terrorist’
  • The Soviets murder innocent people playing a polo game en masse, and mow down women and children from helicopters
  • The Soviets run a hellish torture dungeon / prison where they use electricity and all manner of barbarisms
  • Insert your own comparison here

Honestly, If anyone  in 1988 (the date this film was released) had said that the USA would be doing EXACTLY what the Soviets were doing in teh middle east, only MUCH WORSE, they would have been laughed at, but now….its not a joke; its actually happened.

This film is a montage of all the bad behaviour that is going on, but with the characters swapped around. The only constant is the suffering and injustice poured upon the resident populations.

This film is old. Many of the people who will be watching it now were probably born around the time that it was made. I wonder what on earth they make of it? They do not have the cold war mindset backdrop to put it into perspective like we had; it must seem like a very strange affair indeed, with Russians blowing women and children to bits and the Americans saying ‘In-Sha‘-Allah‘ with the same frequency as Lord Bush refers to tuurrrrrsts.

This world…its all upside out and inside down.

“Jultra”. Chant it.

Friday, August 18th, 2006

From a recent post of Jultra:

“As we face the threat of mass murder, we have to accept that the rights of the individual that we enjoy must, and will be, balanced with the collective right of security and the protection of life and limb that our citizens demand,” he added.

Uh uh. Not so fast. No we don’t, and proclaiming it doesn’t make such sweeping twaddle so. Firstly, I’m not so sure that there is such a thing as a ‘collective right’ outside of the padded cells of the Home for the Communistically Deranged, so it’s not surprising such a deluded fantasy finds a home in John Reid’s filthy communist imagination along with pornographic hallucinations of Stalin, Lenin, and a lap dancing Mao Zedong. […]

“Meanwhile, a YouGov poll out today reveals that more than half of people in the UK questioned wanted a “more aggressive” foreign policy.

Do the respondents actually understand what a foreign policy is, or do they think it means a ‘domestic policy toward foreigners’ ? It really makes you wonder about the integrity of these polls and the ability of those being polled to make anything even approaching an informed rational decision at all as they clearly are not in grasp of the essential issues.


I’ve said before: if you take the war on terror at face value, then the terrorists have won and you have lost. And your loss is a terrible one; an infinite and ongoing haemorrhage of your very humanity under grotesques like Blair, Brown and Reid, the collapse of society into an appalling political and technological police-state, the end of the rule of law, and inevitably, the total disintegration of the state itself into pockets of anarchy and civil war, that is, if the state can’t maintain sufficient order with politically engineered ‘terror busts’ or if things get bad enough for it: it’s very own Tiananmen Squares (hint: look out for this in Parliament Square soon perhaps in protest to a nuclear attack on Iran, hint2: “the rights of the massacred protesters had to be balanced with the rights of the tanks”)

In a twisted way, people like Blair, Reid and Brown are right when they say the world has changed, as it is they themselves who are making the changes and it should be an enormous warning sign that this ‘plot’, before it has even been established, has been jumped on immediately to ram through radical politically unpalatable policies.

It is simply impossible to maintain that terrorists either homegrown or in a cave are making this nightmare happen and it is time to take a stand and say, enough is enough.


Now. Repeat in unison:

Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra! Jultra!

All chant the name of Jultra!!

Jultra, whose analysis and words are so perfect, so accurate, so on the ball it beggars belief.

As I read Jultra, my mind replies to the insanity that he is describing, and then the actual words that I am thinking are his next lines!! Specifically, the part where brutish Communist enforcer Reid talks about ‘Collective Rights’. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A COLLECTIVE RIGHT, you imbecile…but that is besides the point. You MUST read Jultra, because like BLOGDIAL, he is telling it completely correctly and seeing it absolutely clearly.

What a great find, and how reassuring it is to know that someone like Jultra is there, awake and writing.

Michael O’Leary understands perfectly

Friday, August 18th, 2006

Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said: “The best way to defeat terrorists and extremists is for ordinary people to continue to live their lives as normal.

“Because of the additional security restrictions imposed by the government last Thursday, the shambles at the London airports has been anything but normal.” […]

Mr O’Leary added: “The UK government successfully led the return to normality of the London Underground within two days of the 7 July terrorist attacks.

“It is important that they now restore security at the London airports to normality and remove some of these nonsensical, and (from a security perspective) totally ineffective restrictions which were introduced last week.


I keep saying; the most effective means we have to totally defeat these monsters and regain control are economic. No amount of marching, demonstrating, petition signing and blathering on BBQ will change anything.

RyanAir are demonstrating what this means. They are going to launch an economic attack on murder inc. if they do not restore normal function to the airports. If we extrapolate this, imagine a one week boycott of the airports / airlines.

No airline can survive for more than a week without passengers. They need to have their seats filled constantly so that they can repay the aicraft leases and do everything they need to do. If money is cut off for more than that, they collapse.

That is one idea.

Imagine this; no muslim in the UK using commercial aviation. Not many people know this, but anyone can charter an aircraft, and if you have enough people, it is not that expensive. Imagine all the 1.7 million musilms getting together to start their own charter organization where they aggregate their buying power in the same way that people use group buying websites to push down prices of consumer goods. They could have their own virtual airline where they don’t have to put up with racists, and more importantly, they punish the commercial carriers for going along with the nonsensical crusade-edicts of murder inc.

A ghetto airline? Perhaps, but that’s better than having someone look down your pants for a bottle of babymilk. Either way, major digression; the most effective attacks are economic, not verbal or violent. The blood of Murder inc. is money, and if you pinch off the flow of money to any of its organs, it reacts by instant retreat. It is uniquely vulnerable in this respect, and the sooner the StopWar, MoveOn brigade wake up to this, the sooner we will be able to take our lives back on a permanent basis.

Why Patrice Lumumba, first Prime Minister of the Congo was Assassinated.

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

Dear Dr. Waldron, All my life I was affected by the tragic end of Mr. Lumumba. My father could not explain why this very intelligent and lovely man who was the incarnation of our socio-political dreams and hopes was killed with the blessing of the USA president of the time, UN general secretary and the local leaders of the time, My question is why Lumumba was so hated? Why nobody could hear him and understand him objectively? Why king Baudouin who was so intelligent and religious could not take time to discuss with Lumumba to know him better and understand his vision for his home country? From South Africa to Algeria, Egypt to Ivory Coast, I heard similar stories of the best men who were killed to satisfy the international community.

Dear Rev. Doctor, I don’t think anyone in America had anything personal against Lumumba. They did listen to him and they understood very well what he had to say, and that is why Western economic interests killed him. Lumumba was killed by the European and American mining and banking interests because Lumumba was the only person who could hold the Congo together after Independence, and those economic interests wanted to break the Congo apart for their own profit. In order to justify killing Lumumba, they had to create the propaganda lie that he was a Communist. The assassination of Lumumba also suited the Russians who could not control Lumumba alive, but after his death could wrap their man Gizenga in his mantle. Lumumba was doomed. If the West hadn’t killed him, Russia would have, and Lumumba’s Congolese political rivals were equally determined to get rid of him so they could carve out their own little kingdoms within the Congo. This was not just Tshombe in Katanga, but do not forget that Kasa-Vuba originally called himself King Kasa in his election campaign, in which he promised to make his own ethnic group an independent entity. In the months before Independence, most of the Belgians in the Congo knew perfectly well that the Belgian Government, for the sake of the profits of Union Miniere de Haut Katanga and its other economic interests, was already engineering the conditions in which the Congo could not survive as a unified country. The Royal Family of Belgium were major stockholders in Union Miniere de Haut Katanga, and King Baudouin of the Belgians was just as profit motivated as the notorious King Leopold II was when he set up that company to exploit the mineral riches of the Congo. Ordinary born-Congolese Whites and those among the provincial administrators who were caring and honest, were outraged by what the government in Belgium was doing, not just to the African Congolese, but to the White Congolese. You can read more about this in the Luluabourg excerpt from my book THE SECRET IN THE HEART OF DARKNESS; The Sabotaged Independence of the Belgian Congo, which is on this Web site There is a saying in English, that to understand something you “Follow the Money”. Therefore, don’t look for answers to what happened to the Congo in political ethics, or animosities, or misunderstandings of what Lumumba was saying and wanted to do. Look for the answers in who was planning to profit. The people who were behind the chaos and the murder of Lumumba then looted the Congo of all its resources both through taking them directly and through loans to Mabutu at crippling interest rates to have European companies the lenders designated build (or in many cases not actually build) unneeded huge projects while letting the basic infrastructure crumble, impoverishing the country and depriving the people of the necessities of life to service the debts. The people of the Congo need peace, good government, and a viable infrastructure, and I do not know how any of these can be attained in the present conditions of corruption, chaos, war and poverty. A BOOK I RECOMMEND TO SERIOUS SCHOLARS: THE CONGO CABLES THE COLD WAR IN AFRICA–FROM EISENHOWER TO KENNEDY Author: KALB, MADELEINE G MACMILLAN, 1982, These are the actual cables back and forth between Washington, the Congo and the UN.

NSA eavesdropping program ruled unconstitutional

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

(CNN) — A federal judge on Thursday ruled that the U.S. government’s warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered it ended immediately.

In a 44-page memorandum and order, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, — who is based in Detroit, Michigan –struck down the National Security Agency’s program, which she said violates the rights to free speech and privacy.

Taylor’s ruling stems from a case filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. According to The Associated Press, Taylor is the first judge to rule the eavesdropping program unconstitutional. (Read the complete ruling — PDF)

The defendants “are permanently enjoined from directly or indirectly utilizing the Terrorist Surveillance Program (TSP) in any way, including, but not limited to, conducting warrantless wiretaps of telephone and Internet communications, in contravention of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and Title III,” she wrote.

She further declared that the program “violates the separation of powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III.”

She went on to say that “The president of the United States … has undisputedly violated the Fourth in failing to procure judicial orders.”

The lawsuit, filed January 17 by civil rights organizations, lawyers, journalists and educators, “challenges the constitutionality of a secret government program to intercept vast quantities of the international telephone and Internet communications of innocent Americans without court approval.”

The judge rejected the government’s argument that the program is within the president’s authority, according to the AP. […]

Another classic clip from MEMRI

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

Ahmad Khatami: (member of the Iranian Assembly of Experts)

“This victory was promised in the Koran: “The party of Allah must triumph.” On this occasion, I want to tell Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert that they should learn a lesson from this shameful defeat. They should not bare their fangs, expose their stings, or make threats against Islamic Iran. They should learn a lesson from the fact that a single party [Hizbullah] has turned their days into dark nights. If they decided to display the slightest aggression against Islamic Iran, they should bear in mind that the missiles of the Lebanese Hizbullah, with a range of 70 kilometers, have turned Israel into a ghost-country. They should fear the day that our missiles, with a range of 2,000 kilometers, land in the heart of Tel Aviv. Therefore, we hope that Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert have learned the necessary lesson. They should know that playing with Islam is like playing with a lion’s tail.”



These people have absolute control over the creation and delivery of rhetoric….priceless!

Stop collaborating: LISTEN. Aye he’s back with a brand new deception.

Thursday, August 17th, 2006

A system for the “positive profiling” of European airline passengers is to be urgently explored in response to last week’s alleged airline terror plot, European interior ministers meeting in London agreed yesterday.

The home secretary, John Reid, insisted that the new system, which would affect all domestic and international flights in and out of Europe, would not involve screening by religion or ethnic background but would be carried out well in advance of flights based on biometric checks – electronic eye or facial scans.



This would not address anything – you can no more identify a potential terrorist through ‘biometric information’ than you can by what brand of breakfast cereal they eat. This sort of data rape serves only one purpose and that is for the (EU) State(s) to aggregate information on individuals in any/every manner possible. It would be a sickening and wicked deception that would have nothing to do with amending the UK’s foreign policy (nor the interim measure of improving targeted investigations against suspected terrorists) and would simply be an outrageous use of tax payers money that subsidises the Government favourite lobbying companies.

We have been through the arguments so many times that they practically never leave the front page.

For this sort of thing to stop the people of the UK must STOP.

(So where is the rebuttal of Reid’s tripe in the Guardian story? And I’m not talking about the easy option of reporting ‘potential’ racial discrimination)

Craig Murray’s assesment in his own words

The UK Terror plot: what’s really going on? August 14, 2006

Craig Murray [former British ambassador to Uzbekistan]

I have been reading very carefully through all the Sunday newspapers to try and analyse the truth from all the scores of pages claiming to detail the so-called bomb plot. Unlike the great herd of so-called security experts doing the media analysis, I have the advantage of having had the very highest security clearances myself, having done a huge amount of professional intelligence analysis, and having been inside the spin machine.

So this, I believe, is the true story.

None of the alleged terrorists had made a bomb. None had bought a plane ticket. Many did not even have passports, which given the efficiency of the UK Passport Agency would mean they couldn’t be a plane bomber for quite some time.

In the absence of bombs and airline tickets, and in many cases passports, it could be pretty difficult to convince a jury beyond reasonable doubt that individuals intended to go through with suicide bombings, whatever rash stuff they may have bragged in internet chat rooms.

What is more, many of those arrested had been under surveillance for over a year – like thousands of other British Muslims. And not just Muslims. Like me. Nothing from that surveillance had indicated the need for early arrests.

Then an interrogation in Pakistan revealed the details of this amazing plot to blow up multiple planes – which, rather extraordinarily, had not turned up in a year of surveillance. Of course, the interrogators of the Pakistani dictator have their ways of making people sing like canaries. As I witnessed in Uzbekistan, you can get the most extraordinary information this way. Trouble is it always tends to give the interrogators all they might want, and more, in a desperate effort to stop or avert torture. What it doesn’t give is the truth.

The gentleman being “interrogated” had fled the UK after being wanted for questioning over the murder of his uncle some years ago. That might be felt to cast some doubt on his reliability. It might also be felt that factors other than political ones might be at play within these relationships. Much is also being made of large transfers of money outside the formal economy. Not in fact too unusual in the British Muslim community, but if this activity is criminal, there are many possibilities that have nothing to do with terrorism.

We then have the extraordinary question of Bush and Blair discussing the possible arrests over the weekend. Why? I think the answer to that is plain. Both in desperate domestic political trouble, they longed for “Another 9/11”. The intelligence from Pakistan, however dodgy, gave them a new 9/11 they could sell to the media. The media has bought, wholesale, all the rubbish they have been shovelled.

We then have the appalling political propaganda of John Reid, Home Secretary, making a speech warning us all of the dreadful evil threatening us and complaining that “Some people don’t get” the need to abandon all our traditional liberties. He then went on, according to his own propaganda machine, to stay up all night and minutely direct the arrests. There could be no clearer evidence that our Police are now just a political tool. Like all the best nasty regimes, the knock on the door came in the middle of the night, at 2.30am. Those arrested included a mother with a six week old baby.

For those who don’t know, it is worth introducing Reid. A hardened Stalinist with a long term reputation for personal violence, at Stirling Univeristy he was the Communist Party’s “Enforcer”, (in days when the Communist Party ran Stirling University Students’ Union, which it should not be forgotten was a business with a very substantial cash turnover). Reid was sent to beat up those who deviated from the Party line.

We will now never know if any of those arrested would have gone on to make a bomb or buy a plane ticket. Most of them do not fit the “Loner” profile you would expect – a tiny percentage of suicide bombers have happy marriages and young children. As they were all under surveillance, and certainly would have been on airport watch lists, there could have been little danger in letting them proceed closer to maturity – that is certainly what we would have done with the IRA.

In all of this, the one thing of which I am certain is that the timing is deeply political. This is more propaganda than plot. Of the over one thousand British Muslims arrested under anti- terrorist legislation, only twelve per cent are ever charged with anything. That is simply harrassment of Muslims on an appalling scale. Of those charged, 80% are acquitted. Most of the very few – just over two per cent of arrests – who are convicted, are not convicted of anything to do terrorism, but of some minor offence the Police happened upon while trawling through the wreck of the lives they had shattered. […]

Baggage reclaim

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

An article in the Grauniad about missing baggage has some interesting bits aside from the reason for the article:

British Airways passengers today faced more flight cancellations as the airline revealed that up to 20,000 bags had gone missing at Heathrow over recent days.


The home secretary, John Reid, today urged his European counterparts for consistency in anti-terror measures across the continent.

“It’s very important that the measures that are taken in one country are reflected in other countries, because we want equal security for all our countries,” Mr Reid said.

Why would other European countries need to burden themselves with the farce that is being enacted in the UK? It is costly to airlines, is not targeted at actual trrrrrrrrrrrrrsts and finally they don’t seem to have the groundswell of dissaffected persons willing to engage in trrrrrrrrrrrrsm. Obviously it should be the government that should be reflecting the world view of other European countries rather than that of the US, the only EU country to have previously suffered ‘islamic trrrrrrrrrrrrrsm’ is Spain, the government was ousted and we hear of no more problems. With Reid touting himself as an Occam’s razor wielding hardball he should appreciate the simplicity of the argument and pass it onto the other Cabinet lunatics.

And below we see that companies are revolting at the costly smoke and mirrors that the government is toying passengers with:

The budget airline Ryanair, which was today hoping to run a cancellation-free programme for the first time since last Thursday, has been highly critical of the new security arrangements, describing the new hand luggage regulations as “nonsensical”.

The airline’s chief executive, Michael O’Leary, said it had seen a 10% drop in group bookings over the last couple of days as a result of the travel disruption.

“We’re seriously considering taking legal action against the government to force them to get the airports back to normal,” Mr O’Leary added.


And even the police are unimpressed by calls for passenger profiling:

However, the Metropolitan police chief superintendent Ali Dizaei has warned that singling out some passengers considered to be more of a security threat would create a new offence of “travelling whilst Asian”.

Cool Stuff

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

The nice guys at Forced Exposure sent us our very own FM3 last hollidays; very cool stuff, that I should have posted ages ago.

The box it comes in is bears little releation to the magic that is inside, except for a 1in x 1.5in bue sticker attached to the back face of the box, that says ‘fm3 buddha machine’ with the numbers one to nine running vertically (the ‘track numbers’).

freedom & responsibilty

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

Stumbled across this speech from 1950 that contains a few things to think about and a few things you may disagree with (Controversy? We need controversy!):

The constitutions of former American slave states generally specified that the masters must provide their slaves with adequate housing, food, medical care, and old-age benefits. The Mississippi constitution contained this following additional sentence: “The legislature shall have no power to pass laws for the emancipation of slaves . . . [except] where the slave shall have rendered the State some distinguished service.”

The highest honor that Mississippi could offer a man for distinguished service to his country was personal responsibility for his own welfare! His reward was freedom to find his own job and to have his own earnings, freedom to be responsible for his own housing, freedom to arrange for his own medical care, freedom to save for his own old age. In short, his reward was the individual opportunities-and the personal responsibilities-that have always distinguished a free man from a dependent.

What higher honor can any government offer?

But many present-day Americans are trying to avoid this personal responsibility that is freedom. They are voting for men who promise to install a system of compulsory, government-guaranteed “security”-a partial return to the old slave laws of Georgia that guaranteed to all slaves “the right to food and raiment, to kind attention when sick, to maintenance in old age. . . .” And the arguments used to defend this present-day trend toward the bondage of a welfare state are essentially the same arguments that were formerly used to defend the bondage of outright slavery.

For example, many of the slave-holders claimed that they knew what was “best for the slaves.” After all, hadn’t the masters “rescued” the slaves from a life of savagery? The advocates of government-guaranteed “security” also claim that they know what is best for the people. Many of them argue in this fashion: “After all, haven’t the American people conclusively shown that they are incapable of handling the responsibility for their own welfare?”

Many of the slave-holders sincerely believed that the “dumb, ignorant slaves” would starve to death unless their welfare was guaranteed by the masters.

And the advocates of compulsory “security” frequently say: “Are you in favor of letting people starve?”

But as proof of the fact that personal responsibility for one’s own welfare brings increased material well-being, consider the emancipated slaves. Among them, there were old and crippled and sick people. They had no homes, no jobs, and little education. But-most precious of all-the former slaves were responsible for their own welfare. They were free . They had the privilege of finding their own security. . . .

The advocates of this compulsory “security” honestly seem to believe that most Americans . . . are too ignorant, or lazy, or worthless to be trusted with their own destiny; that they will literally starve in the streets unless their welfare is guaranteed by a “benevolent” government. However good their intentions may be, these disciples of a relief state are demanding that they be given the power to force mankind to follow their plans. In the name of liberty they advocate bondage!

This is true because the persons who receive support from the state are thereby led to expect-and then to demand-more support from the state. They become dependents. Thus they enter into a form of bondage. They lose their individual freedom of choice to whatever extent the state assumes responsibility for their personal welfare. In time, as is now the case in the welfare state of Russia, the people become completely subservient to the state. In effect, they become slaves of the “benevolent” government that has promised to solve all of their personal problems for them!

Admittedly, this is not the intent of the planners. Apparently, most of the advocates of government paternalism really believe that they are able to know and to do what is “best” for all of the people. Most of them may honestly desire to help the people. But their efforts always result in some form of bondage. . . .

In Russia we find another example of the fact that good intentions are no guarantee of freedom. For instance, in the beginning Lenin and Stalin probably had no desire whatever to bring slavery to Russia. Their announced plan was to free the Russian people from the slavery of an all-powerful government. But look what happened!


[The American Revoltionaries] knew that the main purpose of government should be to protect whatever security the people were able to attain individually or in voluntary cooperation. They knew that electing or appointing a man to public office cannot endow him with wisdom; it can endow him only with power . Thus they took no chances on this power of government being used to encroach upon their individual liberties and their personal responsibilities. In advance, they put positive restrictions on all officeholders. And as a final guarantee of freedom, they specified that any powers not expressly given to the federal officials were to remain with the individual citizens and their local governments.


And just as the Russians are enslaved to a welfare state, so this country is being carried into bondage by accepting the same false principle. Just as force is used in Russia to make the people conform to the security laws designed “for their own good,” so we also are now forced to submit to American security laws designed “for our own good.” And just as the Russian state punishes any objector, so the American state will now imprison us if we refuse to conform.

If you doubt that compulsory socialism has gone to that extreme in this country, just test it, for instance, by refusing to pay the social security tax that is taken from your salary. The government will do the same thing to you that it did to the owner of a small battery shop in Pennsylvania who balked at the idea of compulsory social security. First, the state confiscated his property. Still he refused to obey. Then the state preferred criminal charges against him. And in January of 1943, the government gave him the choice of conforming or going to prison as a criminal-an enemy of the state because he refused to pay social security! He paid. And his six-months prison sentence was suspended. . . .


Before choosing, however, consider this: When one chooses freedom-that is, personal responsibility-he should understand that his decision will not meet with popular approval. It is almost certain that he will be called vile names when he tries to explain that compulsory government “security”-jobs, medicine, housing, and all the rest-is bad in principle and in its total effect; it saps character and strength by encouraging greed and weakness; it destroys the individual’s God-given responsibility for self-help, respect, compassion, and charity; in some degree, it automatically turns all who accept it into wards of the government; it will eventually turn a proud and responsible people into cringing dependence upon the whims of an all-powerful state; it is the primrose path to serfdom.

No, the choice is not an easy one. But then, the choice of freedom never has been easy. It never will be easy. Since this capacity for personal responsibility-freedom-is God’s most precious gift to mankind, it requires the highest form of understanding and courage.

Dean Russell was a member of the staff at The Foundation for Economic Education, Irvington-on-Hudson, New York, when he delivered this speech in 1950.

Interesting, especially if you update the meaning of security to cover what our governments are legislating against and consider the shifting of the focus of personal responsibility from empowering the individual to informing the State that the National Identity Register, Automatic Number Plate Recognition schemes (etc.) embody.

British Ambassador, “Liquid Terror Plot is FAKE”

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray says the alleged transatlantic liquid bomb plot is staged-managed propaganda on behalf of Bush and Blair – who yearn for a “new 9/11” to absolve them of domestic political trouble.

Murray previously blew the whistle on how the British government was using evidence obtained from torture in Uzbekistan – inflicted on its population US-funded regime of Islam Karimov – the dictator who likes to boil people alive.

Murray questions the intent and capability of the alleged terrorists to carry out the attack and offers the likelihood that evidence of the plot was obtained through torture in Pakistan.

“None of the alleged terrorists had made a bomb. None had bought a plane ticket. Many did not even have passports, which given the efficiency of the UK Passport Agency would mean they couldn’t be a plane bomber for quite some time,” says Murray.

“In the absence of bombs and airline tickets, and in many cases passports, it could be pretty difficult to convince a jury beyond reasonable doubt that individuals intended to go through with suicide bombings, whatever rash stuff they may have bragged in internet chat rooms.”

“Then an interrogation in Pakistan revealed the details of this amazing plot to blow up multiple planes – which, rather extraordinarily, had not turned up in a year of surveillance. Of course, the interrogators of the Pakistani dictator have their ways of making people sing like canaries. As I witnessed in Uzbekistan, you can get the most extraordinary information this way. Trouble is it always tends to give the interrogators all they might want, and more, in a desperate effort to stop or avert torture. What it doesn’t give is the truth.”

Murray describes the alert as “more propaganda than plot,” and points out that of all the Muslim terror suspects who have been charged, 80% have been acquitted and only 2% have ever been convicted on offenses related to terrorism.

Meanwhile, Delhi police in India claim they have concrete evidence that proves collusion between Pakistani intelligence service ISI and the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) in carrying out militant attacks in India.

One of the alleged mastermind’s of the liquid bomb plot, Rashid Rauf, is a member of Lashkar-e-Taiba. The ISI is a CIA front and the CIA have privately ignored their control of terror groups while publicly lauding Pakistan’s status as an ally in the war on terror.

On Monday night it emerged that elements of MI5 wanted the liquid bomb plot to proceed and make the arrests only after the attack had taken place – sacrificing an estimated 3,000 lives and ensuring Britain experienced its own 9/11. […]

The Transatlantic Airplane Bomb Plot Armageddon – DON’T TALK ABOUT IT !

So the Guradian reports “Media must stay silent on suspects

In a joint statement, The Home Secretary John Reid (and PM in waiting – Our Saviour and our Strength) and Attorney General Lord Goldsmith have called for the media to show “considerable restraint” to avoid prejudicing any future trials.

This presumably relates to the fact that no flight tickets had been bought by the cold blooded (but evidently not well prepared killers) and indeed some of the suspect suicide bombers had not got round to getting a passport (well a real one , maybe they had dud ID)…or that most of the suspects were known to the SIS / Police before 7/7 and had been under surveillance with phone taps, photography – even to the comical level that “suspects stepped up their Internet searches for possible U.S.-bound flights, etc.,” .. master planners at work, evidently REALLY WELL PREPARED AFTER 12 MONTHS OF PLOTTIN’ AND A PLANNIN’. Make the Miami 7 look like professionals.

It is evident that this whole crock of shit is now falling apart – See the Miami 7 , see the “Ricin ” gang, see Forest Gate a raid of 250 cops based on “solid intelligence”, see the rapid release of so many “arrested” under the Terrorism Act.

The truth is that there is not the slightest shred of evidence produced anywhere to put any of these people on trial for attempting to bomb anything, anywhere.

They are just a bunch of infiltrated wannabes who have been exposed for that, to further the career of John Reid at the expense of the travel industry , BAA, and passengers. All these people were known about for over 12 months. The “exposure” discussed and planned on both sides of the Atlantic was aimed to ;

1. Introduce even more draconian measures for controlling the population.
2. To increase the element of fear and justify notching up the new “Critical” threat level.
3. To boost John Reid’s grab for the Premiership (revealed here over 4 weeks ago) and fuckover Gordon Brown’s chances of the top job slot.

The Wise men say (Under dire threat of The Contempt of Court Act 1981 ) “We must avoid the publication of materials which may impede or prejudice the complex and ongoing investigations by the police and avoid the risk of prejudicing potential future legal proceedings or prejudging their outcome.”

It was of course the persistence of Bridget Dunne and many others in demonstrating the absurdity of the published Timeline for the 7/7 bombers – ie that they had jumped on a train at Luton that did not exist which led one of the wise men,The Home Secretary John Reid (and PM in waiting – Our Saviour and our Strength) to tell the Police to correct the record. The Met’s response (AKA Dumb Ox Clarke, Heard of Terrism at the Yard ) was, to say it was the Home Office who stated the time of the train the “suicide bombers” caught from Luton … hmm… the Police are actually part of the Home Office .. do they ever talk to each other in there ? Evidently not. Not Fit for Purpose and yet they pull this stroke.

Far from the chance to “impede or prejudice the complex and ongoing investigations “ it will be entirely helpful if there is the widest public discussion of this whole farrago and charade of incompetence.

The Daily Torygraph report that John Reid (PM in waiting – Our Saviour and our Strength) himself has “prejudged the trials for some of the members (of the plot).” according to David Davies the Tory spokesman, who is quoted from a remark he made on Sky TV. Reid is also embroiled in an argument with Gordon Brown and the Treasury about the publication of the names of suspects (required when their assets are frozen) under UN inspired legislation – which simply underlines his grab at the Prime Minsitership , and his ill concelaed contempt for the fellow Scot from the Lang Toon.


The Sunday Times has a leader on the usual lines, abour disaffected muddle class Muslims and youth etc etc.,it also claims ….

When an undercover reporter from The Sunday Times visited Beeston in Nottinghamshire, where three of the July 7 bombers came from, he found either a denial that they had been involved or, perhaps more alarmingly, respect for them as Muslim martyrs.

Please note Mr Murdoch , there is a Beeston in Nottinghamshire , but the Beeston that the three Muslims carrying the bombs on 7/7 came from is in West Yorkshire.100 miles away.

PS. Of course it would be a Godsend if the trial could not be held as if it had been prejudiced, by say the publication by the Bank of England of their names, addresses etc., … wouldn’t it? […]

When critical mass is reached, there will be no turning back. there will be no outrage that can be performed, no staged attack, no real attack, that will persuade the British public to eat any more bullshit.

In fact, if a new attack DOES happen, it might just provide the catalasys needed to start off the chain reaction that will blow the whole system to smithereens. The bigger the outrage the more likely people will say ‘enough is enough’. This will only happen however, once the critical mass of refusal is reached in advance. Everyone needs to be primed. If it happens before the mass is prepared, we may still have enough deployed sheeple to absorb the neutrons of change.

Yes, sheeple are like carbon rods in a nuclear reactor; remove them and their dampening effect and a runaway reaction of freedom explodes and contaminates everything.

How to get private information without database access

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

Confidential bank details scavenged from computers dumped in British rubbish tips and recycling points are being traded for cash in Africa, according to a new investigation.

Personal data, including passwords, sort codes, account numbers and even family names and birth dates, are being offered for sale by fraudsters in Nigeria for less than £20.

The information is being taken from the hard disks of PC’s abandoned at waste tips and local authority recycling points which are then shipped to Africa for repair.

Although the owners believe that they have deleted any confidential information before throwing away the computers, the data can usually be retrieved easily and quickly.


Banks will be among the many institutions that will be able to access NIR related information, qed we shall see this story repeated with far more sensitive & personal information if the NIR database goes ahead and people register on it. Of course the increased usage of computer records in the NHS and other State agencies means a potential agglomeration of personal data from recycled/waste PCs.

Olbermann Exposes Nexus Of Politics And Terror
Details ten clear examples where Bush admin. alerts preceded by damaging revelations

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | August 15 2006

During a prime time segment on his MSNBC show last night, anchor Keith Olbermann presented ten clear examples where the Bush administration had issued terror alerts days after politically damaging revelations and questioned the credibility of each of the alleged plots’ authenticity in light of astounding evidence to the contrary.

Olbermann overwhelmingly documents the staged timing of terror alerts spanning back four years and ends by scrutinizing the latest alleged liquid bomb plot – an operation infiltrated and surveilled for months by intelligence agencies, yet announced to the public on a carefully scripted pre-arranged schedule.

The alleged foiling of the terror plot was announced days after darling of the Neo-Fascists Joe Lieberman was defeated in the Connecticut Senatorial election by anti-war opponent Ned Lamont. Hours afterwards, drooling feverish Neo-Con cheerleaders tried to smear Lamont as “the Al-Qaeda candidate.”

Go here to watch the video segment.


‘No Sale’ is what the awake are saying, and there are ALOT of people who are awake.

The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.

~William Colby, former CIA director

They can’t POSSIBLY own Olbermann. And that is amazing, because he is on Prime Time TV. Or maybe Colby was lying.
