Alan Watt "Cutting Through The Matrix" LIVE on RBN:
Poem Copyright Alan Watt Aug. 23, 2012:
Most Can't Handle the Truth:
"As Economy Plummets There's No Surprises
That Theft and Criminality Rises,
And "Austerity" with High Taxation
Brings to Boil Angst and Vexation,
Yet This Phase was Planned Long Ago
When Top Socialist Eugenicists Told Us So,
Today They Demand Rapid Depopulation,
Blaming Economy, Pensioners, High Inflation,
Bank Crashes were Planned, They Lost Nothing,
Because the People Bailed Them, Suffering,
The Slide into Reduced Way of Living,
Dying in Austerity while Giving and Giving"

Hi folks. I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on August 23, 2012. For newcomers out there you should help yourself to the website cuttingthroughthematrix.com and you’ll find over a thousand audios for free download, where I go through this history of the big system that runs the world and how they have thousands of think tanks across the planet working full time to do all the cultural changes, to affect all of you of course, and your children; and the same thing happened of course to your parents and your grandparents. This has been going on for an awful long time. So if you help yourself to the audios you’ll find out the organizations and the foundations behind it and their big, big plans for the future. They did publish their own books, lots of books, at the beginning of the 20th century. For those who have managed to get some of the ones I’ve mentioned I’m sure they’ve had an awful eye-opener as to the reality of the world, vastly different from the media spin you get every day. And pretty well everything to do with the media is spin or distraction. So help yourself to those. Remember too, you are the audience that bring me to you. You can purchase the books and discs at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. [Order and donation options listed above.] Straight donations are really, really welcome, and you’ll find out how to do it, as I say, at cuttingthroughthematrix.com website.
And those who don’t understand the past, and it truly is a maze to even find the past, even the recent past, as they constantly change history; it’s quite the chore. But when you do get into the old books it’s an awful eye-opener. Books written at the time, when you’re going through wars, that kind of thing, and then you look back about 20 years later and you’ve got a completely different version of what happened. The same as 9/11, those who kept all the data coming out at the time find a completely different story from the official version that emerged later, and we end up with all of these wars. Then you find out that all the wars were planned before 9/11 happened anyway. So it’s just amazing. The boys at the top have such good luck; they’re always winning. They should go to the casinos, I guess they’d win all the time, because they can always predict what’s going to happen, and they’ve always got troops outside countries before anything does happen, and then in go the troops. Because they were planned that way a long time ago to do so.
As I say, your daily media spin is really made up today of cultural changes; the things that you accept as little laughable things, are actually meant to change culture, like Harry with his nude little orgy there, that type of stuff, and then they play it up. Because you see, that wouldn’t have flown very well only 10, 15 years ago. Now they can because they have their pulse on the public. And as the public watch television and dramas and comedies they’re being degraded as they watch them, so that you now all accept it as no big deal. Nothing becomes a big deal, so much so that nothing shocks us at all, on any level. Right down to the mass abortion of children that we’re doing in our own countries and we’re paying for across the world as well; nothing shocks the public anymore. So you’re being altered by design and your opinions are being given to you, and you generally will adopt the ideas of your peer group and they all go along with the official versions because that’s the world they live in.
Also, it’s very difficult for people to really believe that such big powers would want to lie to them in the first place. They truly believe they’re free. They truly believe that the boys above them, the people who come out of special wombs, the dynasties that go into politics, they truly believe that they’re special people who are designed to somehow deal with big problems and allow you at the bottom to just go and play. You’ll find big authors in the past that designed the system you’re in today, they actually wrote books about it, like Bertrand Russell; and he said that we’ll teach them to basically ignore politics and let the government simply rule over them. That’s happened for most folk already. Back with more after this break.
Hi folks, I’m back Cutting Through The Matrix and talking about basically how our thoughts are given to us, and our topics are given to us, so much so that Brzezinski mentioned this 40 years ago, that eventually the public would be unable to reason for themselves, they’d expect the media to do their reasoning for them and their topics every day would be the previous day’s news. That’s already happened, news and sports, so we’re given our topics to talk about; it’s all very safe stuff of course. That’s what the media is there for. Remember, the media all belong to one organization pretty well across the world now. It’s the Council on Foreign Relations; they have a department in every country. They own the media and the journalists and the guys that come on the television and so on and give you your thoughts.
But getting back to democracy. Democracy… it’s never really been defined as such; it’s not got a static definition. It’s elastic you might say. And of course over a hundred years ago those who talked about democracy coming in said that eventually only the biggest groups would have a say in anything. People at that time, some of them thought it was just the political parties, but it also meant big groups of anything, any particular agenda. And we’ve got lots of them out there all paid for by the big foundations, etc. Now, this article here is to do with something that the US is already putting through their books to do with birth-control and I guess abortion too. This article is put in the paper and it says…
Should the Government Pay for Birth Control?
Canadian Doctors Think So
ca.shine.yahoo.com/blogs/team-mom / Lia Grainger 17 Aug, 2012
(Alan: Now, you don’t elect Canadian doctors; that’s your first point, remember. But they’re a big group and an Association, so they obviously now see themselves as a political group as well. It says…)
The issue of government funding for contraception has fueled fierce ideological debate recently with our friends south of the border. Yet here in Canada, it appears our own debate is stirring. (A: What a coincidence eh? At the same time.)
Canadian doctors recently recommended that all forms of birth control be made available for free. (A: ...and that obviously would include abortion, you see.) A resolution was approved on Wednesday at the annual meeting of the Canadian Medical Association (A: As I say, this is a private, professional group; you don’t elect them in. And they’re supposed to, mind you, take care of health. They’ve forgotten what they’re there for, obviously. They’re supposed to be there to save life, etc. Now they’re into eugenics.) that states, "The Canadian Medical Association supports full coverage for all forms of contraception."
And while resolution DM 5-58 passed with about 70 per cent in favour, the issue still spurred lively discussion among the doctors.
According to the CBC (A: ...television in Canada…), the motion was introduced by Dr. Sarah Cook, a Yellowknife family doctor, who believes that birth control is not accessible enough, and that even when it is accessible, the cost is often prohibitive. Another Yellowknife doctor added that unwanted pregnancies are a far greater public health expense than birth control. (A: So they’re down to economics, you see, these doctors that are supposed to deal in healthcare are down to economics and the value of life; I’m talking about economic value.)
A similar argument was made when several American states recently cut subsidies for contraceptives, despite analysis that the cuts would cost more money than they saved, reports the National Post.
Some doctors at the meeting questioned which level of government would fund the initiative. (A: Now, what level of government does it matter? The taxpayer is the only ones who fund anything, from government.)
"Is this going to be a provincial or territorial or federal program that will be available to all patients? There's a cost that's involved," said Dr. Laurence Colman of Toronto.
It is not yet clear how the CMA will lobby the federal government to fund contraception, (A: Now, why would the Canadian Medical Association be lobbying the government to start with? Really? Really? They don’t ask the public what they want, you see. See, the public, really, in democracy are out of the picture. You’re either a big NGO, nongovernmental organization funded by the big foundations with trillions of dollars across the planet, or you’re a bunch like this that often they don’t know who’s funding them, except that we’re all paying them in Canada, and no doubt too they’ll be getting grants from big Pharma as well, and other organizations.) as providing healthcare falls under provincial jurisdiction. Exactly how the CMA resolutions will be implemented is something that will continue to be debated and decided by members throughout the year. (A: Now, it’s not up to them to decide what’s to happen to the general public. As I say, we don’t vote these characters in. They’re allowed to have their opinions and that’s that.)
"The CMA carries a lot of weight, and I think it's great they'll be lobbying the federal government on this issue," says Agathe Gramet-Kedzior, acting executive director of Canadians for Choice, a national pro-choice charitable foundation. (A: So there you go, there’s your charitable foundation in there – there’ll be a lot of them in there too – run by the big foundations, to do with eugenics.) "Contraceptives should be fully-funded: they prevent STIs (A: ...that’s sexually transmitted infections, rather than disease. Disease sounds nastier, you see, so they call it infections here.) and unwanted pregnancies, which cost our healthcare system a huge amount of money."
She points out that there are many reasons someone might not be able to afford birth control, be it woman in a precarious employment situation, or a young person that doesn't want their parents to know they're sexually active. (A: Well, most of them are because that’s all that’s been rammed down their throats through music television and the comedies and the movies, for years and years, to make that happen, you see. Monkey see, monkey do.)
Matthew Wojciechowski -- project manager at Campaign Life Coalition, a Canadian pro-life advocacy organization -- sees the resolution as a poor financial decision.
"We're already drowning in debt, we're suffering financially," says Wojciechowski. "We need more nurses, more doctors, better technology, but instead they're calling on taxpayers to fund lifestyle choices, (A: ...and that’s true, lifestyle choices…) and we don't agree with that."
So, as I say, most folk will say, and Canadians will definitely do it, they’ll say, oh the Canadian Medical Association... Well, they’re not part of government. They’re allowed their opinions but they shouldn’t be lobbying for what the general public will have to end up paying for. And it’s true, it’s lifestyle choices. You never hear any of them ever come out, ever, ever come out when these things are going on and say, well can’t we put some restrictions on maybe Hollywood? Oh my goodness, that would never happen. Never happen. And all the porn they’ve made sure was freely available for all children to see through the Internet. It will never happen. You see, we’re all being guided down a path and eventually the system will be, like they said at the Fabian Society a long time ago, you’ll have to come to them and they’ll decide whether you should be born in the first place, if they need you, and once you’re alive you’ll have to come to them and say why they should keep you alive; you must serve the world state. You see. That’s what’s coming down the pike.
Australia to boost refugee numbers
(A: War is great, you see; it floods other countries with all the refugees, who naturally run out. I would too, wouldn’t you?)
Australia said it would increase its annual refugee intake by 40 per cent to 20,000 a year, as part of a plan to deter people smugglers. (A: ...because you get people smugglers making a lot of cash off of... A lot of different people make money off war you know.)
telegraph.co.uk / 23 Aug 2012
Prime Minister Julia Gillard said the rise, which was recommended by a recent expert inquiry into refugee policy, would include the immediate resettlement of 400 asylum-seekers from Indonesia as a gesture of goodwill.
That’s part of the reason too they’ve flooded a good part of Europe, with the wars, folk trying to get away and get out. And they know this is going to happen before they start the wars too. It fulfills different parts of the purpose of the great plan too, to multiculturalize society and destroy the initial culture that was there. That came out with Tony Blair and his assistant Prime Minister in the mainstream a while back. Nothing happens by chance, nothing at all. It’s all planned that way.
It’s amazing too, that there’s never enough money for everything, supposedly, or hardly anything for the general public, but we’ve got money for wars. And it’s a great industry, the war industry, massive industry. And it’s all to keep you safe, of course. That’s been the ancient technique from then to the present time, it’s to keep you safe. There’s so much money thrown at it all, but not all the stuff that’s put into the air right away or different kinds of weaponry that’s used right away. A lot of it’s put into experimentation for the future, billions and billions and billions of dollars. Anyway, it says...
Chameleon 2.0: American defence robot can creep into rooms and then disguise itself against surfaces (A: ...just like something out of sci-fi.)
dailymail.co.uk / Eddie Wrenn / 20 August 2012
America's defence agency has released footage of their latest research project - a robot that can crawl on to any surface and then discreetly camouflage itself.
The robot, made of soft silicone, has been designed to infiltrate areas through small gaps, before adapting its 'skin-tone' to that of its surroundings.
While movie fans may see overtones of the sinister shape-shifting robot from The Terminator series, for the moment this robot is still in prototype form and takes 30 seconds to change colour. (A: So they’re working on that. There’s a video that goes along with it too, I’ll put that up. They love to show videos to say how wonderful it is. We’re supposed to praise them for all this knowledge and expertise when they come out with all these new things.)
The soft robot can be seen in the video walking on a bed of rocks, before being filled with fluid to match the color of the rocks and break up the robot’s shape.
By introducing narrow channels into the molds through which air and various types of fluids can be pumped, the robot can be made to change its color, contrast, apparent shape and temperature to blend with its environment.
It can also glow through chemiluminescence, and most importantly, achieve movement through pneumatic pressurisation and inflation of the channels.
At a pumping rate of 2.25 milliliters per minute, color change in the robot required 30 seconds. Once filled, the color layers require no power to sustain the color.
The robot moves at a speed of approximately 40 meters per hour - without the colored fluid, it can move at approximately 67 meters per hour. (A: So you might get these sneaking under your doors at night too, and then climbing up the wall and blending in with the wallpaper I suppose. That’s the way things seem to be going. Back with more after this break.)
Hi folks, I’m Alan Watt and we’re Cutting Through The Matrix. I always take interesting articles, when articles come out of your own country for instance, and they lambast some other country for some kind of corruption or something, and you get the same thing in your own country, just the same, you know. But it says here…
Food security: China’s food production characterized by corruption, health-threatening practices
homelandsecuritynewswire.com / 22 August 2012
A report on Chinese TV showed rotten peaches spiked with sodium metabisulfite to make the fruit look fresh (A: Now, I know for a fact people in Canada who work with companies that go around the grocery stores, early in the morning, before the people get in, and they spray stuff on all the veggies to make them look fresh, and the fruit. [Alan chuckles.] But here’s China, so it’s bad, right?), seasoned in bleaching agents and additives harmful to the human liver and kidneys, and pickled in outdoor pools surrounded by garbage; the peaches are then packed in dirty bags which were previously used to hold animal feed, and shipped off to big brand stores; trouble is, this story is typical of, rather than an exception to, food production practices in China.
In a disturbing report, China’s national broadcaster CCTV detailed the manufacturing process followed by sixteen different Chinese companies that sell preserved fruit.
The report showed rotten peaches spiked with sodium metabisulfite to make the fruit look fresh, seasoned in bleaching agents and additives harmful to the human liver and kidneys, and pickled in outdoor pools surrounded by garbage. The peaches are then packed in dirty bags which were previously used to hold animal feed, and shipped off to big brand stores.
The potentially toxic fruit is just the latest item on China’s growing list of food products which are seriously dangerous to citizens. Baby formula adulterated with melamine made the headlines (A: That was Nestlé that was at the head of that one at the time.), but the New York Times reports that other food stuffs produced by Chinese manufacturers include meat containing banned steroids, rice contaminated with cadmium (a metal), noodles flavored with ink and paraffin, mushrooms treated with fluorescent bleach, and cooking oil recycled from street gutters. (A: I actually saw a program on that once, where every night in the main cities there were guys employed and they’d lift up the gratings on the gutters – and the oil floats to the top, and that’s where they dump all their cooking oil – so these guys would suck it all out again and recycle it. I guess they call it ‘very practical’ in the communist systems.)
The food safety problems are a result of the country’s business ethics and the failure of government regulators to keep pace with an expanding market. Observers say that the poor government oversight is an indication of a deeper problem of a weakening civic morality. (A: Well, they’re only copying the immorality at the top. That’s how all socialist/communist type systems work. Because the ones at the top, believe you me, are living high on the hog, and it’s a very fixed, rigid system.)
In 2009 the Chinese government enacted the Food Safety Law to prohibit the use of unauthorized additives and materials and to provide a basis for food oversight from production to households. A national commission of three vice premiers and twelve minister-level officials was set up. The end result, however, has not been what the government or citizens were aiming for. (A: There’s so much corruption and it mentions that too.)
Inefficiency and corruption are widespread among the officials which were supposed to enforce these laws. (A: You get corruption too, in Canada and the States and everywhere else. It happens all over. I’ve seen it. I’ve actually seen it in places I’ve worked in the past, and money changes hands and eyes look the other way. And that’s how things really are in the great world. But as I say, it’s always kind of funny when your country tries to lambast some other country when they’re doing pretty much the same kind of stuff.)
This article too is for the UK listeners…
Have your say on the draft Communications Data Bill
parliament.co.uk / 9 July 2012
(A: I’ll put this up tonight. It’s a joke, because you don’t have any say, but you can always complain. It’s been out already for about a month but it’s going on for another month and it says…)
The Joint Committee on the draft Communications Data Bill, chaired by Lord Blencathra, is conducting pre-legislative scrutiny into the draft Bill and the policies it seeks to implement. (A: This is the one that’s really going to… You’re already observed to the nth degree but this is going into even more privacy.) The Joint Committee comprises 6 MPs and 6 Peers. It will take oral and written evidence and make recommendations in a report to both Houses. The Joint Committee invites interested organisations and individuals to submit written evidence as part of the inquiry. (A: So I’ll put that up tonight for those who want to waste their time.)
This article’s quite interesting too, it’s about Iceland. Of course, we’ve heard what Iceland did. They didn’t go bankrupt like all the other countries and put their people into austerity. They threw out the bankers in fact, and some of them they put in prison I believe; I know they’ve charged them.
Iceland Was Right, We Were Wrong: The International Monetary Fund
thestreet.com / Jeff Nielson / 08/15/12
For approximately three years, our governments, the banking cabal, and the Corporate Media have assured us that they knew the appropriate approach for fixing the economies that they had previously crippled with their own mismanagement. We were told that the key was to stomp on the Little People with "austerity" in order to continue making full interest payments to the Bond Parasites -- at any/all costs.
Following three years of this continuous, uninterrupted failure, Greece has already defaulted on 75% of its debts, and its economy is totally destroyed. The UK, Spain and Italy are all plummeting downward in suicide-spirals, where the more austerity these sadistic governments inflict upon their own people the worse their debt/deficit problems get. Ireland and Portugal are nearly in the same position.
Now in what may be the greatest economic "mea culpa" in history, we have the media admitting that this government/banking/propaganda-machine troika has been wrong all along. They have been forced to acknowledge that Iceland's approach to economic triage was the correct approach right from the beginning.
What was Iceland's approach? To do the exact opposite of everything the bankers running our own economies told us to do. The bankers (naturally) told us that we needed to bail out the criminal Big Banks, at taxpayer expense (they were Too Big To Fail). Iceland gave the banksters nothing. (A: I’ll continue with this when I come back from this break.)
Hi folks, I’m back Cutting Through The Matrix, talking about Iceland and what they did to deal with their crisis that the bankers caused of course. It says…
The bankers told us that no amount of suffering (for the Little People) was too great in order to make sure that the Bond Parasites got paid at 100 cents on the dollar. Iceland told the Bond Parasites they would get what was left over, after the people had been taken care of (by their own government).
The bankers told us that our governments could no longer afford the same education, health care and pension systems which our parents had taken for granted. Iceland told the bankers that what the country could no longer afford was to continue to be blood-sucked by the worst financial criminals in the history of our species. Now, after three-plus years of this absolute dichotomy in economic policymaking, a clear picture has emerged (despite the best efforts of the propaganda machine to hide the truth). (A: And there are three pages to this; I’ll put this link up tonight and you can go through all the rest of it for yourselves, to see how they actually got out of it and how they’re coping today.)
And the countries of course that didn’t fight back in any way, and then they sat back and watched the big crooks being rewarded with your tax money and bailed out, you’ll find that this is what’s happening in Italy and Greece and elsewhere.
Italian dies after setting himself on fire outside parliament
reuters.com / ROME | Aug 19, 2012
(Reuters) - A 54-year-old man died on Sunday after setting himself on fire outside the Italian parliament last week to highlight his struggle with unemployment, police said.
Angelo di Carlo suffered 85 percent burns after the incident in front of the lower house of parliament - the Chamber of Deputies - in central Rome during the early hours of August 11, Italian media reported.
Police on duty nearby put out the flames with fire extinguishers and took him to hospital.
The widower was facing economic difficulties after losing his job and had struggled for years before that with temporary work contracts that offered little protection or benefits, according to media reports. (A: It’s always the ones at the bottom who get hit first; they’re the first to get hit, and the hardest too.)
Italians are grappling with a recession and rising unemployment while facing higher taxes and state spending cuts introduced by the government to try to help rein in Italy's massive public debt. (A: So that the big guys who are too big to fail of course, can go on having their big massive lunches with each other, and conspiring to pull off the next con.)
This article here too, is to do with US intelligence tests and they’re using crowd-sourcing against experts, it says. It says…
U.S. intelligence tests crowd-sourcing against its experts
Might large groups be better predictors of wars and terrorism than analysts in government spy services?
latimes.com / August 21, 2012 / Ken Dilanian
WASHINGTON — Nine years ago, Congress blocked a Pentagon agency from setting up a website that would have allowed anyone with a credit card to bet on the likelihood of foreign assassinations, coups and terrorist attacks.
The idea was to take advantage of the "wisdom of crowds," a social science maxim that contends the average of a group of forecasters, under certain circumstances, tends to be more accurate than even the most knowledgeable single forecaster.
But lawmakers worried the proposed predictions market could allow terrorists to profit from their own misdeeds. (A: ...kind of like the bankers eh? They can bet on things failing.) Congress forced the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency -- the military's cutting-edge research arm, known as DARPA -- to scuttle the program.
Now terrorism futures are back.
DARPA's sister agency (A: ...the one that you haven’t really heard of much…) -- the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, which funds experimental projects for the U.S. intelligence community -- is running a four-year, $50-million program that pays people willing to predict major world events, including wars and terrorist strikes. Unlike the earlier scheme, participants can't profit from their predictions.
Now in its second year, the so-called crowd-sourcing project involves competing corporate and university teams, including UC Irvine. Each team includes more than a dozen social scientists and as many as 2,000 participants, who can answer hundreds of questions each if they want.
The study, known as (A: They love these names…) Aggregative Contingent Estimation, is designed to see whether the 17 agencies in the U.S. intelligence community can aggregate the judgment of its thousands of analysts -- rather than rely on the expertise of just a few -- to issue more accurate warnings to policy makers before and during major global events.
Participants in the project give their best guesses on whether the Free Syrian Army (A: ...you know, the ones we all employ to go over there and overthrow Syria.) will gain control of Aleppo, for example, or whether Kim Jong Un will resign as the leader of North Korea before April 1, 2013, according to project websites. (A: ...etc, etc. But they’ve got a whole bunch of universities into it, including the University of Pennsylvania and different ones. So they’re getting everybody into the spy game. It’s a bit of a joke when you’ve got long-term policy already made. Maybe the whole thing is to find out how many folk will clue in of what they want to do next according to the agenda. Because it’s all an agenda you know.)
This is an article too about possible Civil War in the US. It says…
Texas official warns of Obama civil war
chron.com / Compiled by Chronicle Staff / August 22, 2012
A Lubbock County, Texas, judge, the panhandle county's chief administrator, is asking for a tax increase to hire deputies for the inevitable civil war he believes would follow President Obama's re-election.
The way he puts it, Judge Tom Head wants to prepare for the "worst", which to him means "civil unrest, civil disobedience" and possible "civil war", according to a report from Fox 34 Lubbock
Judge Tom Head and Commissioner Mark Heinrich told the station this week that a 1.7 cent tax increase for the next fiscal year was necessary to prepare for many contingencies, including Obama's re-election. He also mentioned to the station that the county needs a pay increase is needed for the district attorney's office and more funds to pay for more sheriff's office deputies.
"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the (United Nations), and what is going to happen when that happens?," Head asked the station during a Monday interview. "I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."
Head also seems to fear the retaliation of such civil unrest.
"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'. (A: I remember it was Kissinger that said many, many, many years ago, when they were talking about the United Nations troops coming into the United States one day, and he says, under the right circumstances the people would welcome them in. And you should ask yourself why he was saying that, giving that speech in the first place. And that was in California, I think, he gave that speech.)
"And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me' he said, 'yeah, I'll back you'. Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."
The station reports that the tax hike will provide an additional $832,433 coupled with $2 million in cuts to make the numbers work.
So there you go. Who knows? I know that there will be civil unrest down the road because we’re all turning into third world countries, whether we recognize it or not. The signs are all around you. I mean, you’ve got Senators that want to bring in big hefty sentences for people who are stealing metal now. They’re even stealing the metal from graveyards because the economy is kaput. Kaput. It’s all overseas, and that was the plan when they signed the deal with China a long time ago.
An article came out too, to do with be careful who you follow because you’ll find behind all the uprisings and so on, and always behind terrorist bombings, inside the US, you’ve always got the FBI. It says…
Man who armed Black Panthers was FBI informant, records show
baycitizen.org / Seth Rosenfeld, Center for Investigative Reporting / August 20, 2012
The man who gave the Black Panther Party some of its first firearms and weapons training – which preceded fatal shootouts with Oakland police in the turbulent 1960s – was an undercover FBI informer, according to a former bureau agent and an FBI report.
One of the Bay Area’s most prominent radical activists of the era, Richard Masato Aoki was known as a fierce militant who touted his street-fighting abilities. He was a member of several radical groups before joining and arming the Panthers, whose members received international notoriety for brandishing weapons during patrols of the Oakland police and a protest at the state Legislature.
Aoki went on to work for 25 years as a teacher, counselor and administrator at the Peralta Community College District, and after his suicide in 2009, he was revered as a fearless radical.
But unbeknownst to his fellow activists, Aoki had served as an FBI intelligence informant, covertly filing reports on a wide range of Bay Area political groups, according to the bureau agent who recruited him.
That agent, Burney Threadgill Jr., recalled that he approached Aoki in the late 1950s, about the time Aoki was graduating from Berkeley High School. He asked Aoki if he would join left-wing groups and report to the FBI.
“He was my informant. I developed him,” Threadgill said in an interview. “He was one of the best sources we had.”
The former agent said he asked Aoki how he felt about the Soviet Union, and the young man replied that he had no interest in communism.
“I said, ‘Well, why don’t you just go to some of the meetings and tell me who’s there and what they talked about?’ Very pleasant little guy. He always wore dark glasses,” Threadgill recalled.
See, they can tell you this many, many years after the fact because there are official secrets acts and time limits to all these things. They tell you way after the fact when most of them are dead and no one cares anymore. But the same techniques are being used all the time. So those out there, especially young guys, who are going to get radicalized by people, be very, very careful because you’re getting set up. It’s the same everywhere across the world, Canada, Britain, you name it, especially in this day and age. Don’t follow anybody.
Here’s the article actually here to do with metal being stolen in the States. And in Britain it’s got pretty bad too; they’re even stealing the lead sheeting under the roofs of churches over in Britain now because it’s just dire straits.
Sen. Schumer aims to make metal theft a federal offense
gsnmagazine.com / 2012-08-10 / Mark Rockwell
Critical infrastructure isn’t just under electronic assault, according to one New York lawmaker. It is also being physically assaulted by metal thieves cutting away at bridges, gas lines and other facilities, in search of a quick buck.
As scrap metal prices skyrocket, metal thieves pose a potentially dire threat to the nation’s bridges, water and gas lines, and electrical systems, said Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) on Aug. 8. (A: Have you seen the price of copper these days? I mean, it’s sky high.)
Schumer, appeared at a press conference at a Syracuse, NY, school where metal thieves had stolen copper air conditioning lines, causing thousands of dollars in damage, said he has introduced legislation that would make stealing metals, such as iron, copper and other metals, a federal offense. (A: And it really is going through the roof. But as I say, it’s happening all over the place because the economy is kaput. And when that happens crime rises. People will survive one way or another, you know, that’s just the way it is.)
I’ve mentioned before about neuroscience, it wants to create itself as a proper science. Most sciences are really full of nothing but theories and guesses; a theory is just somebody’s guess, that they all agree is a good guess. [Alan chuckles.] So anyway, neuroscience, since it’s pushing itself up there, has put different videos up there on trying to get psychopaths off with easy court sentences. They can’t help it, you see, and neuroscience, they say, can help prove that. You see. So here’s another article on it and it says…
Biology gives American psychopaths a legal break
Thedailyherald.com / 16 August 2012
(A: I knew this was going to happen years ago.)
LONDON--Criminal psychopaths in the United States whose lawyers provide biological evidence for their brain condition are more likely to be sentenced to shorter jail terms than those who are simply said to be psychopaths, according to new research. (A: So just SAYING it’s a biological condition at the courtroom is going to get a leaner sentence.)
A study published in the journal Science found that if judges were told a criminal was a psychopath, they considered it an aggravating factor. But if they also heard biological explanations for the disorder, they gave shorter sentences.
Researchers from the University of Utah who conducted the study said the findings were surprising and worrying, and external experts said they had problematic implications for how brain science might affect criminal justice in future. (A: And that’s why they’re trying to get into everything, especially the justice system, with all their theories, you know.) "In the coming years, we are likely to find out about all kinds of biological causes of criminal behaviour, so the question is, (A: This is an old communist idea by the way, that there had to be biological causes for criminal behavior, you see. That’s why if you were a psychopath and a criminal you got a very light jail sentence in Russia. But if you spoke out against the government you were locked away for life and probably killed. See, under their belief system anyone can be retrained, you understand.) so the question is, why does the law care if most behaviour is biologically caused?" said Teneille Brown, an associate professor at the university's college of law.
Seena Fazel, a clinical senior lecturer in forensic psychiatry at Britain's Oxford University, noted there are already known biological bases for many disorders criminals suffer from, including drug abuse, alcoholism and antisocial personality disorder. "So if psychopathy reduces your sentence because it has a biological basis, why shouldn't these other more common conditions also result in reduced sentences?" he said. (A: See how it affects everything else? You see.)
The Utah team carried out a survey of 181 judges in 19 U.S. states who were given a hypothetical case of aggravated battery to consider. They found that when judges were given a "biomechanical" explanation for a criminal's psychopathy, they saw this as a mitigating factor and reduced the sentence, on average by about a year.
Now, they haven’t found any biological or biomechanical reason for it at all. They really haven’t found it. And even when they say there’s a certain part that’s a different size in the frontal lobe of the brain, that’s literally smaller in psychopaths, it doesn’t mean all psychopaths commit crime, by the way. There’s lots of psychopaths out there, and who are professionals, in surgery, or a lot of them in academia, and definitely a lot in politics, you see, but it doesn’t mean there’s a biological cause for it. They haven’t got the proof of that, or they’d all be crazy and antisocial and nasty. But it doesn’t matter. This is the big agenda, because neuroscience you see is eventually to take control of all of us from birth to death, and psychological testing from birth to death. And this is part of the agenda here that I’m reading right now, as they raise their standard as being a new science that’s going to show that they are the top science of human behavior.

Surveillance unit produced no terrorism leads, NYPD says
cnn.com / David Ariosto / August 22, 2012
(A: Remember a whole bunch of them were caught in a room and they were part of a spy network watching Muslims; but it says surveillance unit produced no terrorism leads, the NYPD says.)
The NYPD's Demographics Unit was put together with the CIA's help
(A: Now, this is the CIA working inside the US, and it doesn’t matter about the laws anymore, they can do what they want.)
The unit's reports never led to a terrorism investigation in at least 6 years of monitoring
(A: ...the Islamics.)
Thomas P. Galati's testimony was part of a suit that began with class-action case in 1971
NYPD says "premise that the demographic unit was used for wholesale spying.. was false"
New York (CNN) -- A controversial NYPD surveillance unit that cataloged information on Muslim communities never produced a lead that linked to a potential terrorist plot during years of investigating, according to the head of the city's police intelligence division.
The NYPD's Demographics Unit -- or Zone Assessment Unit -- was put together with the CIA's help following the September 11, 2001, attacks. The unit has acknowledged that it engaged in monitoring that included Muslim-owned business and mosques across the New York region. (A: ...but they didn’t have one thing to report in six years of surveillance. So you know…ppffew, there it goes. That’s how things really work out, unless the FBI’s in there with an instigator. Back with more after this break.)
Hi folks, I’m Alan Watt and I’ve mentioned many times about this big system and how they decided a long time ago to use socialism, or communistic style bureaucracy to control all the people through numerous ways from birth to death, in all situations, and all data would be kept on you, etc, and government officials and agencies would rule your life all through your life; that’s already happened of course. And that pleases the fascists on top, you know, the big bankers that run the whole system. Here’s an article here which shows you how the chaos of globalization affects everyone, especially those who really need the cash. Because in Britain they have a winter fuel allowance, it’s only 200 pounds they get, for pensioners. I’ve read the articles year after year here on how many thousands die in Britain, in their homes, pensioners, because they can’t afford the bills. And that’s an acceptable amount to the government, you see. It’s acceptable. You know, they’re over the hill, they’re not paying taxes anymore because they’re pensioners, or they’re paying low taxes. But they’re pensioners and they’re not, you know, not consumers anymore and producers. Remember, the United Nations definition of a good world citizen is a producer AND consumer. Once you’re retired you’re no longer a producer. But it says…
Pensioners to take 'temperature tests' before receiving winter fuel allowance
telegraph.co.uk / Rowena Mason / 23 Aug 2012
Pensioners will have to take a "temperature test" before claiming their £200 winter fuel allowance after the European Union ruled the British expatriots in tropical countries are eligible for the heating benefits. (A: So it’s going to take more money away from folk living in Britain, to give to folk who’ve moved off into the hot countries; they have to get paid as well.)
Iain Duncan-Smith, the Work and Pensions Secretary, has promised to fight the "ridiculous" EU ruling that could cost the UK almost £100 million per year. (A: They’re still in it. See, Britain doesn’t really have, this Parliament they have in Britain is just a sham; they’re under this massive Soviet system of the EU.)
The diktat (A: ...and that’s what they call it, diktat...) means 444,000 expatriots who have spent most of their working life in Britain would be eligible for the payment. Currently, only 73,000 who currently get it because they still lived in the UK when they retired.
Mr Duncan-Smith is now planning to bring in a new rule saying the payments can only go to people living in cooler climates.
"The winter fuel payment is about helping British pensioners with heating costs," he told a newspaper. "It is ludicrous we could have to pay more pensioners in hot countries." (A: That’s globalization for you. That’s your socialist system, you know. That’s how it goes folks.)
Another article I’ll put up tonight too, and go into cuttingthroughthematrix.com to get all these articles. This is about Ritalin....
Raising the Ritalin generation
joannejacobs.com / August 19, 2012 / By Joanne
(A: It gives you an example about a child who was diagnosed, an eight-year-old boy of course, with the usual eight-year-old boy’s energy, and the school teacher suggested an evaluation. School teachers don’t like boys with a bit of energy and stuff; they don’t sit like little girls. But in a socialist system you’ve all to be the same now.)
But the third-grade teacher suggested an evaluation.
. . . once you start looking for a problem, someone’s going to find one, and attention deficit has become the go-to diagnosis, increasing by an average of 5.5 percent a year between 2003 and 2007, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (A: It’s not a disease.) As of 2010, according to the National Health Interview Survey, 8.4 percent, or 5.2 million children, between the ages of 3 and 17 had been given diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
There’s no test for ADHD, she writes. Teachers’ impressions... (A: ...They’re given impressions; they are the ones who make the diagnosis and make the recommendations to go off and see the quack, and they drug the children. And you all think it’s normal. You all think it’s normal.)
From Hamish and myself from Ontario, Canada, it’s good night and may your God or your Gods GO with you.
