I can’t really comment in any informed way on societies in the East, except to point to the Chinese slave workers who produce mountains of plastic crap for Western nations to use and then dump in the ground and oceans; the Middle East’s role as a bombing target, ‘terrorist’ recruiting ground and civil war factory for Western warmongers, and South East Asia and Africa as a block of new ‘nations’ born out of the ‘white man’s burden’ to civilize their people via brutal colonization and then grant them ‘independence’ in the form of never-ending debt to Western banks.
In the West on the other hand, where I live, I can say with confidence that our modern society, its political and social conventions, customs and morality, has past it’s expiry date and is well and truly moribund. If I were a political or social cartoonist, the image would be a giant rotting corpse plastered in thick make up and doused in cheap perfume with a greedy banker’s hand up its ass making it move and talk to fool the public into thinking that they actually has a future worth living in.
Leading the cast in this tragicomedy (heavy on the tragi) we find our psychopathic leaders and their media whores trying extra hard to convince us that everything is just fine. But that smell, that stench of lies and the screaming contradiction between what they say and what we can all see (if we look) is making it increasingly hard to believe them, and even our own wishful thinking.

Shows that it isn’t hard for people to be “disappeared”, and makes ya wonder how many other missing persons are actually being held around the world by your average psycho citizen scumbag.
These are the three human siblings (obviously misidentified as human) who kidnapped the three girls between 9 and 11 years ago and held them in their house in Cleveland, Ohio. The evidence suggests the girls were repeatedly raped and abused by the subhuman species known as the Castro brothers. Worse still, at least one of the girls gave birth to what is most likely the progeny of one of these freaks of nature. Latest reports suggest the girls may have given birth to up to 5 babies by the Castro creatures.
Check out Charles Ramsey, a neighbor of the Castro brothers, describing how he discovered the Amanda Berry as she was trying to escape the house.
I became familiar with the poems of Pablo Neruda while studying Spanish/Latin American literature at University. Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, the legal name of the Chilean poet, diplomat and politician Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He chose his pen name after Czech poet Jan Neruda. In 1971 Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in 1973. Throughout his life he was one of the world’s most eloquent freedom fighters in the true sense of the word. You can read a reasonably balanced synopsis of his life here.
One of his most famous poems is called simply, Poem 20, and it’s one of my favorites (and even better in the original Spanish), but the poem by Neruda below is more topical (in terms of this web site) I suppose. It’s a poetic (and accurate) rendering of the history of US corporate and government involvement in Latin America, a history that was defined by CIA coups, death squads and the installation of brutal dictators that would do business the ‘American way’ and not balk at murdering thousands of innocent people.
I suppose I’m just feeling a bit melancholic because there are so few people of the caliber of Neruda left in the world today. Read More →
Vincent Bridges, in the vicinity of a camel, many years ago when he could still pass as a human
When not sponging of gullible tourists in Prague, Vincent Bridges (aka ‘Dr. Strange’) spends his time writing about how to “call down the cube of space” and has been known to impolitely impose himself on an Egyptian camel or two. Bridges claims to be an ‘Enochian Magician’. For the uninitiated, ‘Enochian magick‘ has its origins in ancient Egypt and the various cults that existed at that time. Many of these ‘Enochian magicians’ today see themselves as tasked in some way with triggering the end of the world, or ‘cosmos regeneration’ as they call it. In more recent times, Enochian magick is understood as being a fancy term for ‘Satanism’.
In recent years Bridges appears to have fallen off the map, possibly due to ill health or perhaps as a consequence of an overzealous “calling down of the cube of space”; we may never know.
Jay Weidner, on the other hand, is still very much tramping the new age circuit. Read More →
Vigils for a ‘shining city on a hill’ that never was
Two days ago, onDecember 14, 2012, another ‘withdrawn’, ‘troubled’, ‘genius nerd’ allegedly went on a rampage in the USA, killing dozens of people – this time, mostly small children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
The US government wasted no time in making subtle allusions to ‘gun control’: “We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.” said Obama in the wake of the massacre. Statements such as these threaten to give America’s millions of 2nd amendment nut-jobs a collective aneurism.
Throughout the wide and emotionally-charged media coverage, no one seems to care that there are many serious unanswered questions about the last major US domestic massacre, allegedly by another ‘withdrawn’, ‘troubled’, ‘genius nerd’ – James Holmes – in July 2012 in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater.
Starring the Aurora Police Chief and a smirking FBI special agent, the following 3 minute video poses some uncomfortable questions that take us beyond the ‘lone nut and a nation in grief’ storyline that gets dragged out to placate the population every time someone goes postal in the USA.

The Century 16 movie theater early on Friday morning, July 20, 2012. A 24-year-old man gave himself up to police after telling them he “possibly” had explosives in his home.
Claiming 70 victims, 12 confirmed dead and 58 injured, the mass shooting Friday at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, about 10 miles from Denver, is the worst mass shooting in US history. Cinema goers were 30 minutes into a sold-out midnight screening of the newly-released third installment of the Dark Knight Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, when someone described by witnesses as dressed “entirely in black” in full SWAT/riot gear – including gas mask, ballistic helmet, bullet-proof vest, bullet-proof leggings, throat and groin protection, and black tactical gloves – entered an emergency side exit of the theater.
After releasing cannisters of tear gas into the packed movie theater, he proceeded to calmly shoot members of the audience, picking off anyone who tried to escape along the aisles. Most of the movie-goers were between 15 and 25 years of age. When the gunman decided he was done, he exited the way he came, downed his weapon and gave himself up to police. A law enforcement source told CBS News the suspect was well-equipped, with one rifle, two handguns and a knife. There were also unidentified explosives found in his vehicle. He also informed them about “possible” explosives in his apartment. When Aurora police showed up at the University of Colorado medical campus address, they found his apartment rigged with trip wires, thousands of rounds of ammunition, jars full of highly flammable liquid that would explode on mixing and 30 improvised grenades. Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said“I personally have never seen anything like what the pictures show us is in there.”
There’s more to this story than meets the eye, however. Read More →
The people behind this campaign are MASSIVELY misguided. Or it’s a CIA-sponsored psy-ops.
Take for example the fact that one of the 12 ‘policy makers’ (US politicians) that they are targeting to help them ensure Joseph Kony is arrested is George ‘Dubya’ Bush. The puppet president who presided over the murder of 1.5 million Iraqi civilians. And we’re all meant to believe that people like him are going to care about the plight of Ugandan children? Kony is Bush’s ideological brother for god’s sake.
Other than their complete ignorance of the fact that the US political elite is populated by the world’s worst war criminals, the makers of this video are also massively ignorant of the truth about WHY Uganda, and many other African nations, are subjected to the brutal excesses of war lords and have been for so many decades.

The sad news of the drowning of two-year-old Liam Keogh in a ‘ghost estate’ in Atlone, Ireland, presents a tragically perfect analogy to the wholesale plunder of the Irish economy by the psychopaths who sit atop the world’s banking cartels. Instead of a decent future for Ireland’s youth, they have left a literal and financial death-trap.

While the mainstream media is going to great lengths to convince the world that events in Syria are the result of yet another ‘people’s revolution’, the facts point clearly to yet another US government-sponsored bloody ‘regime change’. Given that the US has been a de facto global empire for at least 60 years, with all of the power, infrastructure and influence that entails, how difficult do we think it would be for agents of the empire to manufacture a ‘revolution’ in any given country? The answer, surprisingly, is ‘not so easily’. But it is doable, as long as the empire is willing to murder innocent civilians to create the impression of a brutal regime in need of removal. And the USA has never balked at murdering a few hundred, a few thousand, or even a few million civilians to ensure it gets its geo-political way, to the delight of psychopaths in power everywhere.
