Alan Watt "Cutting Through The Matrix" LIVE on RBN:
Poem Copyright Alan Watt March 12, 2010:
Ruling Technique is Clear,
Keep Public in Fear:
"An Arm of Government, Mainstream Media,
It Can Take Statistics and Drum Up Hysteria,
Few Gang Shootings in Toronto Become 'Year of the Gun,'
Few Stabbings in U.K. is 'More Slicing to Come,'
Fear and Terror Pushed Year After Year,
To Keep Public Timorous, Grovelling in Fear,
More Cops are Hired for Crime's Sticky Wickets,
Who're Sent on Highways to Hand Out Tickets,
Now Latest Decree Is Beyond the Pale,
Non-Violent Burglars to Be NOT Sent to Jail,
Why is Law on Thievery Negated this Time?
Politicians Have Affinity with Partners in Crime"

Hi folks. I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on March 12th 2010. For newcomers, you should always look into cuttingthroughthematrix.com web site. Scroll down and bookmark all the other sites I have up there for future reference because when the big ones go down, the .com site sometimes goes down, you can always download the latest shows from the other sites. [Official sites listed above.] I always remind the audience that you are the audience and that depend upon YOU to keep me going. I donít accept money from advertisers or backers. The ads on this show that you hear are paid by the advertisers directly to RBN for the broadcast of the show and for their equipment and staff and their bills. So you have to help me with mine. You can do so by going into any of my web sites and see the books that I have for sale. Remember, I donít write in the linear fashion, the computer language that we are brainwashed with. I show you a lot of symbols and so on, which is a language in itself, to show you there are other ways of thinking as well. Also, to show you how symbols work upon you and how youíve been conned your whole life long, and probably most of you will continue to be conned as they use different combinations of them. We are very predictable. You can also buy CDs and DVDs on the sites or you can donate to me. The disks have maybe 50 shows at a time, going at pretty good prices. [Ordering and donation options listed above.] For those that get the disks burned of the shows and passed to them, they play them on their CD players and donít like computers; you can get in touch with me at [address above]. And thatís the spiel over for the first few minutes.
A lot of this news that I even read over the air, to me is kind of trivia. Itís is released into the mainstream media, sometimes itís legalities, other times itís to take you off into different directions. But the mediaís job is NOT to keep you informed. If you were informed about what was happening in the world, we wouldnít be in the mess we are in. They understand that of course. We wouldnít have this massive debt. We wouldnít have a corrupt banking system thatís been on the go long before we were ever though of. We wouldnít have this big mafia system we call democracy all tied together through the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations. If there had been a true media in any country, this would not have happened. It couldnít happenÖ because we would know the scam from the beginning. The beauty of scams like this is, once itís on the go and you parents accept it, then you will accept it quite naturally as well. All mammals look to the parents to warn them of whatís dangerous to them and humans are no different. What a system. Beautiful. Train one generation and they train the next. I'll be back with more after this break.
This is Alan Watt and we're Cutting Through The Matrix, just mentioning if the media had ever done its job properly we would never be in the mess we are in. We couldnít be fooled if we were being given truth all the time. Remember, I read an article last year where some case was brought against, I think it was one of the big TV networks, by some of the staff who were forbidden to show a program that they had done, a documentary, even though they were under contract to do as they wished. It turned out in a court in the US that, the judge said that the media is under no obligation to tell the public the truth. That seldom dawns on the average person who parrots off the media at face value. Itís always been this way. Itís always been this way.
When the big bankers started off using London as a test run, theyíd already used countries before. Holland was one and then they built up London to take over and then New York after that, although London is still one of the biggest players, probably still the biggest player. They also took over and CREATED the big media chains. Information is VITAL. Knowledge is power. If you want to hold on to power and not share it, then you just give the public nonsense and trivia to follow around. Thatís what we are dished out DAILY. Until - and this is the interesting thing which theyíve found at the top as well - the more trivia they give the public, the more the public seem to like it, especially if itís sort of trivia about the stars. They gave us the stars as well, from Hollywood and the bimbos and whoís having affairs and who is divorced and all the rest of itÖ as though it was vital to know, vital to our existence to know this stuff, kind of like sports, the same kind of nonsense. The people seem to want more and more and more of it, because, you see, you donít have to get INVOLVED and make any decisions with this kind of trivia. It titillates the senses but you donít have to make any adjustments in your life or actually do something, so they kind of like that.
Most folk in todayís society are part of the new collective. Individualism was a short-lived thing. People were starting to get a bit of it after the death of feudalism, if you want to call it that or even want to believe in that. Thatís when individualism came to the surface for the first time as folk got some freedoms. Theyíve found out that it is much easier to go back and use collectivism where we all parrot the same stuff and think the same stuff, we are all educated with the same stuff and so we are all in the same Platoís Cave. We are all familiar with the exact same cave; anything outside that cave has got to be ludicrous, you see, and you laugh at it because it canít exist, can it.
Yet, as I say, the mediaís job is like, itís an ARM OF GOVERNMENT. Itís an arm of the big banker boys who control everything. The same families that have lent to countries, for centuries, still run the world today. They are doing it even more so as they bring on the big crash, to lead up to the International Monetary Fund, which is their bank by the way, taking over. Thatís just a meeting place for the same money lenders to meet, the International Monetary Fund AT the United Nations. Everybody works for them. Everyone. Every Prime Minister and President works for them, across the planet. Thatís the reality of life.
Your educational system is GIVEN by them to mandate you get the proper indoctrinations, so youíll never figure it out. Your entertainment industry PROGRAMS you for whatís to come through fiction and at the same time it keeps you bedazzled as well, so you donít figure it out. Youíll think everything that happens in life and comes up and is passed by law must be quite normal, right down to getting a chip stuck in your head. That will be quite normal too. But itís much better to get the public to actually WANT itÖ and thatís not hard to do either.
To show you how the media is just an arm of government, listen to this spiel thatís given by this particular reporter here for The Register. Iíve talked before about how Australia was one of the first government to mandate the filtering policy on the internet and yet one of the first people who was censored for using the internet was actually a Christian group who had the word Ďabortioní in one of their topics. So it wasnít going after pornography at all, it was going after all the people who were protesting against the corrupt way of depopulation thatís been mandated across the world, which is also an outcome of the promiscuity that was mandated back in the 40s and 50s by Julian Huxley and others as a way to destroy the family unit. This article is from The Register.
NZ internet filter goes live -
(Alan: So New Zealand followed. The British Commonwealth countries all work together; they are still ruled from London really.)- gov forgets to tell public
The rise of the secret censor
By John Ozimek - theregister.co.uk - Posted in Government, 12th March 2010
New Zealandís internet filtering system went live last month Ė but the government forgot to mention this to its electorate until its hand was forced by online freedom campaign, Tech Liberty (techliberty.org.nz). (A: So here is the spiel the paper give out about it, right, which the government forgot to mention this to the electorate.)
Thomas Beagle, a spokesman for the group, said he was "very disappointed that the filter is now running" and that its launch had been conducted in such a "stealthy mode". He added: "It's a sad day for the New Zealand internet."
In an interview with Computerworld (computerworld.co.nz/news.nsf/security/new-zealands-internet-filter-goes-live) this week, he claimed that the filter had gone live on February 1 but the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) (A: Thatís an internal department.) delayed announcing this at until it had met with its Independent Reference Group.
The manager of the DIAís Censorship Compliance Unit, (A: I like that, ĎCensorship Compliance Unití, it sounds very soviet doesnít it?) Steve O'Brien, denied that there had been any subterfuge. The system has been undergoing trials for two years and the media have been aware of this throughout. (A: So hereís one blaming the other, you see. Thatís what they do. But what he is saying is also true. The media were aware of this for the last two yearsÖ but where did they have their public pointing? The same bimbos you see on your same front pages, and all down the side there, in their bikinis. Thatís where they take you, into nonsense.)
He said: "The Independent Reference Group has met and the filter system processes were demonstrated as set out in the code of practice, that is that the website filtering system prevents access to known websites containing images of child sexual abuse." (A: Thatís what they said with the Australian one too and it ended up grabbing Christian groups.)
While the DIA continues to be coy about exactly which ISPs are joining the filter, Tech Liberty understands that Watchdog and MaxNet have already signed-up to deploy the filter system, and that ISPs Telstra Clear, Telecom and Vodafone have said they will do so. (A: So there ya go.)
The government blames the media for not informing the public and the media blame the government for doing it in a stealth mode. THATíS how itís run because they both work for the same boss, you see, the guy who prints the money. Thatís what central banks are; they have the right to issue, to print up money. Thatís what they do. And everyone goes to the big boys for their money, including every so-called head of every government.
Whatís also come out too, is how they are leaving nothing to chance anymore. Everyone is supposed to know, at a certain levelÖ Put it this way, all the common people, thatís the bulk of the populace, are supposed to know, or be able to find out about everybody else across the planet, in the same class as themselves. Quite a few years ago, they did say, I can remember from the British government and the US government, that SPECIAL people, their information as to where they live, who they really are, all that kind of stuff, would be denied to the public, as far as access through internet went. So you couldnít find out. But for the common folk, everyone else is supposed to know exactly where you are. Google has come out with a completely mapped Britain now with your house and everything on it. There is also a company, which I should mention before I go on with this article, thatís come out with some kind of phone and somehow or another if you join their little club it allows burglars and everybody else to know when youíre home or where you are if youíre not at home and it will tell you where you are. So now here is Google to tell them how to get to where you are.
All mapped out: Virtually every road in the UK will now appear on Google's Street View
By Sean Poulter and Claire Bates - Mail Online - 12th March 2010
Google is extending its Street View service to peer at 95 per cent of homes in the UK, despite criticism that it amounts to an invasion of privacy. (A: Well, you know who the other 5% are. These are the people who really MATTER, you see, the people who DESERVE privacy, as they say. After all, in the British system, everything is a PRIVILEGE. Privacy is a privilege in Britain.)
From today, 360-degree pictures will be available of virtually every street from Penzance to Shetland. An extra 210,000 miles of detailed mapping will be made public.
The service (A: Ha.) has previously been restricted to major cities. It means Britain will join Spain, France, Italy and the U.S, which already have nationwide coverage.
Street View images are captured by a Google car fitted with a panoramic camera on its roof. (A: Why do they even need a car? They can just do it all from satellite.)
Pedestrianised areas including Stonehenge and the banks of Loch Ness were shot by a Google tricycle. (A: Ah, oh-ho, big deal, trivia.)
The project, launched in partnership with Visit Britain, also imaged the Millennium Stadium, Angel of the North, Eden Project and Warwick Castle. A number of National Trust properties are also viewable. (A: Etc, etc, etc. However, there are also people who are complaining about it because once again, itís the destruction of your own privacy. If youíre a commoner youíre not in that 5% whoís not on it. Great how they can also make deals with the Ďnobs,í as they call these people; you know, the 5%, the ones who matter. The government employees up there in the federal governments and so on, they donít appear because, you see, people might be after them. Well, maybe some nutcase is after common folk as well, apart from the government and the tax man. But that doesnít matter either does it?)
Thatís what we are, you see; we are just the herd, as I said last night. Iím going to put an article up tonight too, on cuttingthroughthematrix.com. All these links will be up there if XplorNet obliges me with the speed to put anything up, which they seldom do. This is from the BBC and itís about statistics and how the media can BEND your perception as regards to actual facts.
Safety in numbers
bbc.co.uk - 18 July 2008
(A: This one is worth repeating.)
A POINT OF VIEW
Alarming stories of a rise in knife crime + lack of confidence in understanding statistics = more fear for ourselves and our children, says Lisa Jardine. (A: Iíll read this. Iíll show you how it goes through the process of the media spinning things out of proportion. I'll be back with more after this break.)
This is Alan Watt and we're Cutting Through The Matrix, reading an article which is a couple of years old but itís worth going back over. It is written by a woman who, she says hereÖ
My own small research centre runs a Masters in Research programme, and the marks accumulated by students from the various exercises and modules have to be collated and tabulated to work out their degree result.
Since each module's mark represents a proportion of the sum total of those available, this involves calculating percentages - a task which seems to fill several of my otherwise highly competent members of staff with dismay, even though they are accustomed to processing arcane information from documents and archives. (A: But thenÖ They actually use this technique on the media and the stories in the media.)
Over the past couple of weeks we have been bombarded with figures by the media, on a range of topics, all apparently calculated to cause the person in the street the maximum amount of concern. Some of the stories based on these statistics have been the talking point at practically every social gathering I have attended.
In the aftermath of what has felt like an avalanche of shocking news stories, multiple arrays of statistics have been produced, purporting to show a sudden, alarming rise in knife-related murders of school-age young people.
These have whipped up public anxiety to near-panic levels with headlines proclaiming an "epidemic of knife and gun crime", "spiralling out of control", creating a level of youth disorder which adds up to "a national crisis". (A: These are the headlines she is showing you.)
The first thing to say is that discrepancies in data collection methods make it hard to get a coherent story out of these numbers, though the journalists have certainly tried hard.
In spite of the statistics selectively used to fuel an alarmist story, all the available figures from reliable sources like the Home Office (A: Thatís the British governmentís sort of Homeland Security thing.) and the police seem to be showing that incidences of knife crime have remained relatively steady over the past five years, while violent crime as a whole has actually declined.
The 2007 British Crime Survey reported that the drop in violent crime "is part of a long-term trend - crime rates peaked in 1995, then fell by 42% over the subsequent 10 years". (A: But to read the reports that come out of the newspapers, itís worse than ever, you see.)
A lengthy report by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies - Guns, Knives and Street Violence published last month - summarises as follows: "The evidence on knife crime contains a number of ambiguities, but combining the various data sets, a rather clearer picture emerges. Despite increased media attention, levels of knife crime have remained fairly stable at around 6-7% of all violent crime."
Then she goes on to show you how itís done and how the media grab these stories, blow them way out of all proportion until everyoneís terrified. Then, of course, the non-governmental organizations come forward and demand that something be done, get more laws out there, and that kind of stuff. And when theyíre not on about that, theyíre on about dog bites, dog bites, get more laws to restrict dogs and so on. Then theyíre back to knife crime again. Itís just back and forth because the media, apart from keeping you in utter ignorance, is also supposed to keep you on the edge. The big boys in politics, the boys that run the banking system, want everyone to be on the edge, all the time. It makes you easier to control. You never relax. When youíre relaxed you can really think clearly about things. When youíre always on the edge and afraid of things, then you will never, ever think clearly on anything. So Iíll put this link up as well for those who want to look it over and go over it.
Iíve got an article here about burglars. Itís amazing. Itís interesting to look at the Soviet Union, the test bed for the Fabian Socialists and the collectivist system to run the world. Thatís where they got it, from the Soviet Union. In the Soviet Union, if you said anything about government, even about any particular policy of government, you were called Ďanti-government.í Thatís where the term comes from that WE are now using NOW. Itís being slapped on anybody who is not in Parliament or in your Congress. Itís been slapped on anybody in the general public who complains about any policy. Ah, youíre anti-government. Well, we got that from the Soviet Union. ALSO from the Soviet Union, they would slap you in a gulag, you see, for any, what they called, political crimes. That meant disagreeing about things or objecting even. An objection was a nasty thing in the Soviet Union.
However, ordinary criminals were treated with incredible leniency in some places, in prisons. Because under the Darwinian scheme of things and the Pavlovian scheme of things where everyone can be RETRAINED through science, they can REMAKE youÖ kind of like the character in the movie A Clockwork Orange, they can remake you into the proper kind of man with SCIENCE. Science rules, you see. Science has displaced all Gods off their pedestals. Well, here is Britain, again the flagship for the whole world to follow, doing the same thing. Guess what? Here is a ruling come out from the high court in England that burglars should not be put in prison. Iím not kidding.
Don't put burglars in jail (unless they hurt someone), courts told
By Steve Doughty - Mail Online - 12th March 2010
Burglars should not be jailed unless they cause damage or hurt someone when committing their crime, Government advisers said yesterday.
The Sentencing Advisory Panel called for judges and magistrates not to hand down prison sentences to ordinary burglars who were responsible for 'minimal loss or damage'.
But even criminals who operate in gangs or steal large sums of money may walk free under the guidelines, which suggest 'community' punishment for many offenders.
The recommendations contradict last year's ruling by Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge, (A: Heís actually called ĎLord Judgeí believe it or not. This is like reading a fairly story when you read these British newspapers. I'll be back with more on this after this break.)
This is Alan Watt and we're Cutting Through The Matrix, just going over an article which talks about, burglars should be allowed to go free. It says here thatÖ
Instead, the Sentencing Advisory Panel said yesterday that 'any starting point for domestic burglary should be non-custodial'.
Damage, harm to householders (A: Thatís if they bash you on the head and stuff.) or other factors making the crime more serious should make a jail sentence more likely, (A: Not definitely, right.) it suggested.
So there is how far things are going. See, they want this stuff. They want to hype up the problems within society, the revolving door, and turn them back on the streets again to cause more crime. Cops love it too because if they put all the criminals away theyíd have to start laying-off the cops. So as long as the criminals are just revolving out, they can keep catching them again for new crimes and putting them back in and they just come back out of the court again, like a revolving door, just round and round and round. So everybody is happy, especially the law society; it keeps them in business. But in society itself, it makes you afraid; when youíre afraid you look to government to make you secure. Thatís the oldest technique of tyranny in the book: terrify the public, offer them security AT A PRICE Öno freedom, weíve got to watch everybody including you too, you know. Thatís how the game works.
While theyíre allowing burglars to go free, there is a good article here, in the same country about the guy being put in jail for SMOKING. He was a landlord of a bar, a pub.
Jailed smoking ban martyr is freed by a mystery crusader's cash
By David Wilkes - 11th March 2010 - Mail Online
Freedom arrived earlier than expected for smoking ban martyr Nick Hogan yesterday... courtesy of a briefcase full of cash carried by a man in a green Guy Fawkes mask. (A: Thatís after that V for Vendetta [movie].)
Former pub landlord Mr Hogan became the first person to be jailed in connection with the smoking ban when he was sentenced to six months for refusing to pay a fine imposed for flouting the legislation.
His plight inspired a campaign on the internet to raise funds to pay off his outstanding fines.
It reached its climax yesterday (national no-smoking day, no less) when a mysterious blogger called Old Holborn (A: Thatís a nice tobacco.) delivered the money to Forest Bank prison in Salford - 11 days into Mr Hogan's sentence.
The arrival of the self-styled ' libertarian vigilante' at the Category B prison in his mask, full black costume and hat left other visitors amused or bewildered.
In the prison car park, Old Holborn, who wore his costume to hide his identity, flipped open the metal case to reveal enough bundles of used fivers and tenners (A: Thatís cash.) to pay the £8,445.15 [Double that for dollars.] needed to secure 43-year-old Mr Hogan's release. (A: Isnít that just EXTORTION? Donít people realize that the legal business is just a MAFIA? Where you can pay the cash and you go free. Pay the cash and you go free... thatís how it all works isnít it? Itís the same with your taxes if you have a home or something, you pay the cash to the government or they steal your home. We live in an extortion systemÖ but weíve been trained to see it in a different way. Our perceptions have been distorted through conditioning, so we donít actually see what weíre seeing.)
Old Holborn - who says he is named after his mother's birthplace in London rather than the well-known tobacco, told reporters: 'I'm here to free a man in prison under an unjust law.
So they put guys in prison who own their own bars, right, and who allow customers to come in, who all smoke. If you were going into a striptease joint, you know what to expect in a striptease joint, right? If you go into a gay bar, you know that you are walking into a gay bar. Well, if you go into a smoking bar, you know what they are going to do, they are going to smoke. So whatís their problem with it? Whatís their problem with it? They go after smokers instead. Now, itís okay to shoot heroin and all that kind of stuff; they actually have government social workers going around in vans dropping off new syringes and stuff like that, to make sure itís nice and hygienic. In British Columbia they teach young children in primary school how to inject safelyÖ but donít dare smoke a cigarette. Thatís just taboo!
Where did all this come from? The United Nations World Health Organization; thatís who started it all off. Who started off the war against obesity? The United Nations World Health Organization again. Everything comes from the United Nations, something that none of us vote for because we are not GIVEN a vote on anything, in this wonderful democracy. I call it derotcracy, you see. Itís ROT, you see. Thatís what it really is.
For shades of things to come, things to come as they say, rioting is expected as the countries go under with the latest plunder of our pockets by the same bankers, again, who planned it all long ago. Mind you, they got all the military ready to take over countries, shoot the folk that start rioting, and they planned that long ago as well, to make sure of it. Greece is the first country, one of the first countries. I think Iceland had a bit of riots going on as well about the bankruptcies going on and Greece has also followed suit. I expect there will be a spate of them going on. It says hereÖ
Greece rocked by riots as up to 60,000 people take to streets to protest against government
By Mail Foreign Service - Mail Online - 11th March 2010
Street clashes broke out between rioting youths and police in central Athens today as tens of thousands demonstrated during a nationwide strike against the cash-strapped government.
Hundreds of masked and hooded youths punched and kicked motorcycle police, knocking several off their bikes, as police responded with volleys of tear gas and stun grenades.
The violence spread after the end of the march to a nearby square, where police faced off with stone-throwing anarchists and suffocating clouds of tear gas sent patrons scurrying from open-air cafes.
Rioters used sledge hammers to smash the glass fronts of more than a dozen shops, banks, jewelers and a cinema.
Youths also set fire to rubbish (A: garbage.) bins and a car, smashed bus stops, and chopped blocks off marble balustrades and building facades to use as projectiles.
Organisers said some 60,000 people took part in the protest. But an unofficial police estimate set the crowd at around 20,000 - including those that took part in a separate, peaceful march earlier Thursday. (A: Whatís interesting, if you read down in the article, a lot of the police themselves joined in because theyíre also fed up at government cutbacks on their wages.)
About 200 uniformed police, coast guard and fire brigade officers, who cannot go on strike but can hold protests, gathered at a square in the center of the city shortly before the marches got under way.
'The police and other security forces have been particularly hard hit by the new measures because our salaries are very low,' said Yiannis Fanariotis, general secretary of one police association.
Joining the protest 'doesn't feel strange, because we are working people like everybody else and we are all shouting out for our rights,' he said.
This is really the start of the riots to come. Weíve all to pay through the nose with massive inflation as they print more cash and governments, of course, are going to tax us more and more in ANY possible way they can. Everything is going to be taxedÖ even the air we breathe is going to be taxed. Thatís really what the carbon taxes are all about. You know, it was King James the 1st that was called the first King to tax fresh air, and light. He made a law to get taxes in; he couldnít get any through parliament at the time. Inspectors went around to the houses counting your window panes and depending on how many that you had and how many windows that you had, they would also give the amount of tax that youíd have to pay up. Thatís why in England today some of these very old houses, the old mansions and so on, youíll see where the windows have been bricked up. Thatís how the folk go around it then. They used their savvy and said, well, okay, weíll sit inside with a candle rather than pay these taxes. You know folk today wouldnít even do that. They are too dumbed down, drugged, doped with the stuff in their drinking water and their injections to even think of doing that. They also taxed you for, according to the light that would come through your windows.
Now weíre going to get taxed on how much carbon dioxide we use, or what goes into any product that we buy. The farce of bags of nothing. They donít even have the bags to collect it in, just bags of theoretical nothing. Worked out by whom? The bankersí boys. Who profits off it? The bankersí boys. Who pays for it all? WE DO, as always, as always. A world where the majority of people just play, play into their graves. Quite something. How disgusting! You know our ancestors would turn in their graves to know what we put up with today. They would DISOWN US, utterly disown us for the wimps that weíve become.
Iíve always said that 50 years after any major event, because thatís generally what they put down for the official secrets act, when government and their agencies do dirty tricks on the general public, that will kill you. Generally itís the lethal type of thing, like spraying Norwich people, with the British Navy, and allowing the gas to go across the part of the sea into Norwich and then test them down the road to see how many cancers develop, how many problems theyíll have. This is a COMMON thing that governments do. But there is nobody more clandestine, really, than the CIA. Here is an article. It blossomed out today; itís probably all over the place.
French bread spiked with LSD in CIA experiment
A 50-year mystery over the 'cursed bread' of Pont-Saint-Esprit, which left residents suffering hallucinations, has been solved after a writer discovered the US had spiked the (A: the townís) bread with LSD as part of an experiment.
Henry Samuel in Paris - telegraph.co.uk - 11 Mar 2010
An American investigative journalist has uncovered evidence suggesting the CIA peppered local food with the hallucinogenic drug LSD.
In 1951, a quiet, picturesque village in southern France was suddenly and mysteriously struck down with mass insanity and hallucinations. At least five people died, dozens were interned in asylums and hundreds afflicted.
For decades it was assumed that the local bread had been unwittingly poisoned with a psychedelic mould. Now, however, an American investigative journalist has uncovered evidence suggesting the CIA peppered local food with the hallucinogenic drug LSD as part of a mind control experiment at the height of the Cold War. (A: They did it in other places as well. They were doing an awful lot within the United States on their own military.)
The mystery of Le Pain Maudit (Cursed Bread) still haunts the inhabitants of Pont-Saint-Esprit, in the Gard, southeast France.
On August 16, 1951, the inhabitants were suddenly racked with frightful hallucinations of terrifying beasts and fire.
One man tried to drown himself, screaming that his belly was being eaten by snakes. An 11-year-old tried to strangle his grandmother. Another man shouted: "I am a plane", before jumping out of a second-floor window, breaking his legs. He then got up and carried on for 50 yards. (A: Thatís what it does to you. You can break your bones and still go on.) Another saw his heart escaping through his feet and begged a doctor to put it back. Many were taken to the local asylum in strait jackets.
Time magazine (A: Time magazine is a great cover for the CIA.) wrote at the time: "Among the stricken, delirium rose: patients thrashed wildly on their beds, screaming that red flowers were blossoming from their bodies, that their heads had turned to molten lead."
(A: In other words, the CIA and Time worked together on the story because you see that happened in the Middle Ages quite commonly with the ergot of rye, a mold that forms on the rye, which they used for their bread and kept it in a common place, a common silo. It would often happen and they would get these hallucinations. They are using that, thatís how they put it down at the time: it could be the same ergot of rye hallucinations.)
Eventually, it was determined that the best-known local baker had unwittingly contaminated his flour with ergot, a hallucinogenic mould that infects rye grain. Another theory was the bread had been poisoned with organic mercury.
However, H P Albarelli Jr., an investigative journalist, claims the outbreak resulted from a covert experiment directed by the CIA and the US Army's top-secret Special Operations Division (SOD) at Fort Detrick, Maryland. (A: Maryland is responsible for an awful lot of stuff.)
The scientists who produced both alternative explanations, he writes, worked for the Swiss-based Sandoz Pharmaceutical Company, which was then secretly supplying both the Army and CIA with LSD.
Mr Albarelli came across CIA documents while investigating the suspicious suicide of Frank Olson, a biochemist working for the SOD who fell from a 13th floor window two years after the Cursed Bread incident. (A: I love how they fit it together. They love these numbers and stuff.) One note transcribes a conversation between a CIA agent and a Sandoz (A: pharma.) official who mentions the "secret of Pont-Saint-Esprit" and explains that it was not "at all" caused by mould but by diethylamide, the D in LSD.
While compiling his book, A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA's Secret Cold War Experiments, Mr Albarelli spoke to former colleagues of Mr Olson, two of whom told him that the Pont-Saint-Esprit incident was part of a mind control experiment run by the CIA and US army.
After the Korean War the Americans launched a vast research programme into the mental manipulation of prisoners and enemy troops.
Scientists at Fort Detrick told him that agents had sprayed LSD into the air (A: They had aerosolized it.) and also contaminated "local foot products".
Mr Albarelli said the real "smoking gun" was a White House document sent to members of the Rockefeller Commission (A: Well, who else? Who else, eh, since the bankers are in control.) formed in 1975 to investigate CIA abuses. It contained the names of a number of French nationals who had been secretly employed by the CIA and made direct reference to the "Pont St. Esprit incident." In its quest to research LSD as an offensive weapon, Mr Albarelli claims, the US army also drugged over 5,700 unwitting American servicemen between 1953 and 1965. (A: There are instances too, of servicemen under experimentation who also threw themselves out of windows quite a few floors up and died as well.)
Thatís how you can trust your governments. You can not trust your governments for anything. Iíve got report after report from different countries of their own governments doing these kinds of experiments on them and WORSEÖ much, much worse. In Canada it took 50 years before the very FEW survivors of experiments of the Canadian government in the warfare facilities division of the Department of Defence had been spraying all their soldiers, these so-called volunteers were told they were going to test new gas masks. It was nothing to do with that at all. It was to get the stuff through their skin, through their clothing onto their skin, something that goes into your blood stream. They were all dying off of cancers; there are only about 2 of them left so far. Who needs enemies when youíve got your own government? Do you realize we are all pawns in a bigger game? And the boys who rule us have world agendas and they donít see the peasants below them in any country any different from the peasants anywhere else. They donít have any particular affiliations or amiable feelings towards you. They see you as a separate, lower species, less evolved. But we never learn do we? But weíre very handy for keeping it goingÖ paying the taxes for research and development for new weaponry to control all of us.
WE PAY FOR OUR HANDCUFFS, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. WE PAY FOR OUR CHAINS. Of course, thereís no stage where itís enoughÖ you can never say, thatís enough. We never say that. Itís true, you know, if everyone stood up tomorrow and just told every law officer, every courtÖ NO, NO, we are not even going to recognize you and you walk out. What are they going to do? Arrest the whole nation? Or weíve had enough with these prices or these taxes or whatever. Do you realize theyíd all have to go home? Öin their silly little costumes they call uniforms? Thatís the music so Iíll be back with more after this break.
This is Alan Watt and we're Cutting Through The Matrix just mentioning the fact, you know it takes two to tango. An old, old saying, two to tango; thatís when people used to hold each other when they danced. It really does. It takes the authorities and it takes the public to tango, where they play and pretend that they are there to take care of us and we play and pretend that they are. We pay up and cough up and they go through the motions with a smile on their face, can we have more cash and we say, weíre kind of broke. Then they pass a law and say, youíll really have to obey now wonít you? And we all say, yeah, I guess we do. Really, if the public just stood up, which they will never do... Donít get me wrong, I know theyíd never do this. But if they ever stood up and just walked out of courts and walked out of everything ALL TOGETHER, EN MASS, then all the people with all their silly symbols of authority, it would mean nothing. It would instantly mean nothing. Nothingness, absolute nothingness. Theyíd all feel like goons, with the judges with their big, long wigs on and their cloaks on and whatever they do or donít wear underneath it, and stuff like that. It takes two to tango.
The reason that weíve been trained to believe we need them all, is for OUR OWN SECURITY AND SAFETY. Itís such a violent, scary world out there that without them there would be chaos. For that reason, we allow ourselves to be coerced and cajoled until we have no privacy whatsoeverÖ none at all. And itís time the game was stopped really and say enough, everybody say, thatís enough. Itís true enough, which will never happen, itís pie in the sky fantasy, but if the next time the gasoline goes flying up, or the oil for heating goes up, everybody stops buying it; thatís it. Youíll see them scurry VERY QUICKLY to get the prices down. But we donít do these simple things.
Passive resistance worked in India. Thatís what we really need to show across the world. People would really have to be united. The problem is there are so many factions all fighting for supremacy you canít really get folk even to go along with anything together for their own good. Even if the world was coming to an endÖ they wouldnít do it. Thatís where the Club of Rome was correct, quite right; there were too many competing and conflicting parties for power, for democracy to work. Thatís why they bypassed democracy and brought us the parallel government called the Royal Institute of International Affairs.
And talking about them, their brothers in the US and Canada called the Council on Foreign Relations have issued Ė and Iíll put this up on my site Ė a series of reports on HOW TO REPORT the science TO the general public on climate change, so that they are all on board giving the same lies together and they donít start emailing each other about all the nonsense that gets found out by the public. So they are issuing guidelines on HOW to report this stuff TO the public so weíll all get the same propaganda from the different panels. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is working with them and the Council on Foreign Relations are the ones who are advising them on how to overcome problems with brainwashing the public with the propaganda. Iíll put that link up.
How to Fix Climate Science Reporting

Also, next to it, another article. Actually itís a United Nations article, from the Telegraph.
United Nations review of how world assesses risk of climate change
The head of the United Nations (UN) has announced a review of how the world examines the risk of global warming following a series of scandals around the science of climate change.
By Louise Gray - telegraph.co.uk - 10 Mar 2010
At the same time as the Royal Institute of International Affairs issued their report. Amazing how they all do it at the same time. They couldnít be connected could they? No. Whoíd have thunk of such a thing? So Iíll put this link up too and you can read it for yourself to see how we get nothing but standardized reporting on the climate, FROM THEM ALL, from now onÖ thanks to the Council on Foreign Relations.
From Hamish and myself in Ontario, Canada, itís good night and may your God or your Gods GO with you.
