Poem Copyright Alan Watt Nov. 9, 2011:
Elites Cause Damage, Then Experts
Living Standard Taking Dive
Into Great Transition Hive:
"We're a Scientifically Managed Dumbed-Down Idiocracy,
Designed by Scientific Socialists Hired by Plutocracy,
Eternal Peter Pans, A Youth Culture, We are Sold,
Everyone is Terrified of Looking and Getting Old,
Perpetual Children are Easily Contented for Control,
Lots of Entertainment, Drugs, Sex and Rock 'n Roll,
Information Managers Stream Thoughts From a Faucet,
Setting Trends of Uniformity, Much Trivia and Gossip,
The Idiocracy is Positive that Partying is Eternal,
The State Takes Care of Negatives, STDs, Things Maternal,
News of Wars, Depressions, and Police State is a Bummer,
As Long as Drugs Keep Flowing, Every Season's Summer,
If Their Lifestyle's Threatened They Become Useful Tools,
Never Questioning Who's Using Them, Experts are No Fools,
In GREAT TRANSITION to Austerity, the Gauge Used You See,
Is Can Poverty Be Balanced by How Happy You'll Still Be"

Hi folks. I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on November the 9th 2011. For newcomers, you should look into cuttingthroughthematrix.com, help yourself to the free audios for download. Remember, all the sites listed there, they are the official sites I have. Anything outside of that page happens to be not mine; so these are the official sites. They all carry the audios. They all carry transcripts in English of a lot of the talks Iíve given and if you want talks in other languages for print up, then download those available at alanwattsentientsentinel.eu, which is also listed on the .com site. Help yourself. As I say, thereís a lot to choose from and hopefully youíll understand thereís a big system behind the systems that are presented to you via the media, such as governments and parliaments and congresses and all the rest of it. Thereís a much, much bigger system running the world, that knows where itís going and of course everything in the world is led by money and bankers. The big banks, in fact, the very big banks own most of the big Military-Industrial Complex companies that youíll see listed, they own water supplies across the world. Theyíre going for everything actually right now. So itís interesting to see how they also run big foundations, under different names like the Rockefeller Foundation and Ford, Carnegie, and many others, which list and actually fund hundreds of their armies, which are non-governmental organizations, which actually lobby governments, when theyíre told to, and the governments are told theyíre going to come and lobby them because they all want to pass the same laws to please the bankers. Itís all for public perception really. And of course, when they lobby the governments, the governments say the people have spoken, even though these are really private, as far as Iím concerned, privately-paid non-governmental organizations, like any other corporation. But they appear to act on behalf of the public which always stays pretty quiet about everything. So thatís how the whole game is basically run. And weíre going into the global society. Weíre really in it now, now that weíre into interdependence as China and other countries bring in their own television stations, from mainland China, linked up to mainland China, and into the US and other countries. So help yourself.
As I say, remember too, that you are the audience that bring me to you because I donít bring on advertisers as guests. The ads you hear on this program during the breaks are paid for independently by advertisers to Republic Broadcasting Network to pay for the air time and the staff and the equipment and hopefully their bills too. And the things that break, all the gadgets that come out today that we have to use donít last terribly long when youíre using them so often. So you have to help me with my costs by buying the books and disks at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. And remember, you can donate as well. [Order and donation options listed above.]
Weíre going through, as I say, these massive changes. Weíre distracted with so much trivia in between them too, which is all intentional because they have to keep everybody mind bombed and worried about bank collapses so as that the big banks can actually do what they want to do in the first place, which is to get more power for themselves as they amalgamate all the central banks across the whole planet. Theyíre all pretty well owned by Rothschild nowadays, except for Korea and Iran and one other country. But they really do. They own pretty well all the banks of the world. And if you go into the histories of the Council on Foreign Relations/Royal Institute of International Affairs youíll find that was their plan over 100 years ago, to take over the entire wealth of the world, resources of the world, bring in a world government starting with something that resembled the United Nations and go on from there. So weíre well, well underway towards this system. And they cause the crisis and they use themselves for the solution. They get what they want by crisis creation and resolution. Back with more after this break.
Hi folks, weíre back Cutting Through The Matrix and itís so incredible to see that weíve all been conned. Weíre trained from childhood to believe in this system as itís presented to us. And of course, Iíve said before, in order for continuing propaganda to work on you, you really do need the basic grounding in education. So thatís mandatory. Thatís why education is actually mandatory, because subsequent propaganda will always refer to the initial indoctrination you got at school and itís very hard to break out of that too. People still want, even people who have studied for years, they still want to think things are just happening as theyíre presented by the media. And thereís nothing further from the truth.
We know for a fact that the countries that the New American Century wanted to take out are exactly the countries which have been and are being taken out and are still to come, that Obamaís regime is continuing. Things are planned many, many years in advance and simply set into motion regardless of who happens to be the puppet in the government at the time; itís all a big show. And government has nothing to do with what youíre trained, though countless movies, that theyíre supposed to do, where theyíre so up and proper and patriotic and concerned, etc. Government is nothing like that because itís primarily psychopaths who end up in government in the first place. Itís the same when they even get into governorships; thatís where the big money is. Itís no different from mayors of big cities; all the big contracts come to you, lots, millions every year you dish out for contracts and of course you get massive kickbacks, etc, too for giving contracts out. I mean, corruption is the name of the game.
Tonight Iíll put up a link. Itís to do with legalized corruption of government exposed by Abramoff. Abramoff was in trouble before, remember, and he actually got caught trying to bribe government officials. And it was quite standard procedure. He explains how it actually works, always has worked, and how the people in government from the politicians to bureaucrats, diplomats, naturally are in there for themselves; theyíre not in there because of any country. Itís a fantastic job, well paid and the whole bit, and if they can jump into the private sector, on higher salaries even, they jump at it. They get offers all the time by the lobbyists. And he explains how the system works to someone on 60 Minutes and this guy who introduces this particular segment of video even says, why is this woman whoís been on 60 minutes for donkeyís years Ė thatís a long time, a donkeyís year you know Ė why is she giggling and saying, oh my, like sheís absolutely astonished. Utter nonsense, they all know this stuff. Anyway, Iíll put this link up. You got to watch it. Itís quite interesting and kind of laughable too. Thatís how it really does work at the top.

And also too, another little clip, if youíve ever wondered about the media and its being controlled from central sources, Iíve mentioned this before. You could flip through channels on television, and even at the same time, in the same format, with the stories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, they all do the same stories in the same order and everything, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Same titles, same intro. Because they all come from central sources to make sure that everyone gets the standard indoctrination of nonsense. And this oneís kind of comical but it does show you, and itís a real one too, it does show you how it actually works. And how they can also alter your perceptions of things, when theyíre doing promos even. And people donít even know what a promo is anymore when they sneak it in amongst the news. They donít even know when theyíre getting promos pushed to them, theyíre so dumbed down unfortunately. Iíll put this link up as well.
If you ever had any doubt the media is controlled... - brasschecktv.com
And to do with the coming blacklisting of internet sites and so on, itís already happening. People send me links here on stories and I just canít pull them up. I just canít pull them up. So weíre already getting censorship, at least on the Canadian side, possibly on the US side as well. With sites I used to be able to pull up, I canít get them anymore. So it says...
Notes from the Star Chamber-Blacklisting in the Digital Age
boilingfrogspost.com / 8 November 2011
US Prepares to Censor Internet Access While Urging Internet Freedom for the Rest of the World!
At the London Conference on Cyberspace, November 1-2, Vice President Joe Biden urged other nations to protect internet freedom of expression.
ďBiden did not name countries he felt were offenders. But he criticized the efforts of some nations pursuing an ďinternational legal instrument that would lead to exclusive government control over Internet resources, institutions and content and national barriers on the free flow of information online.Ē (PCWorld) (Alan: So thatís what Biden was saying across the world, and that was in PCWorld, that quote.)
Meanwhile, back in the US, Congress was preparing to pass a law granting extraordinary powers to censor the internet. The proposed law, described as ďthe Great Firewall of America,Ē has the support of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (A: Well, who else, eh?), who also favors Internet freedom for other countries. If the US government still had any credibility on this issue after banning access to websites posting leaked cables, the latest hypocrisy should have killed it.
Then it goes through all the different ones who are for it and against it and all the rest of it. Thereís a whole bunch of names, they call it ďStop Online Piracy ActĒ and ďPROTECT IP Act,Ē and so on, from the Senate.† So theyíve all got different names depending on the branch of government thatís pushing it. Itís all the same thing though. Thereís a whole bunch of quotes from different science and technical magazines on the article; ArsTechnica is in here and other ones too.† So Iíll put this link up and you can see where this censorship is actually going. Itís exactly what Biden said it will do in other countries, which is, it will lead to ďexclusive government control over Internet resources, institutions and content and national barriers on the free flow of information online.Ē So anyway, itís coming and itís actually here. I know that because, as I say, I canít pull up various sites I used to pull up before, just canít do it; itís blocked. So thatís where we are today. And itís all the same people who are blocking them across the world actually.
Walmart wants to be your MD (A: Interesting, eh?)
Retailer seeks to use medical services to lure shoppers, boost traffic
(A: Itís quite something isnít it?)
msnbc.msn.com / 11/9/2011 / By Julie Appleby
Walmart ó the nation's largest retailer and biggest private employer ó now wants to dominate a growing part of the health care market. (A: Actually itís going to fill in for and be part of the Obamacare probably and thereíll be discounts for paupers and stuff like that, and youíll get maybe a Band-Aid, or maybe a used Band-Aid, maybe a recycled one, this new health care youíre bringing in there in the US. Anyway it says here...)
Walmart -- the nation's largest retailer and biggest private employer -- now wants to dominate a growing part of the health care market, offering a range of medical services from basic prevention to management of chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease, according to a document obtained by NPR and Kaiser Health News.
In the same week in late October that Walmart announced it would stop offering health insurance benefits to new part-time employees (A: Hey, what a sweetheart this is, eh? So they actually take away the health insurance from their own part-time employees.), the retailer sent out a request for information seeking partners to help it "dramatically ... lower the cost of healthcare ... by becoming the largest provider of primary healthcare services in the nation."
On Tuesday, Walmart spokeswoman Tara Raddohl confirmed the proposal but declined to elaborate on specifics, calling it simply an effort to determine "strategic next steps."
But by midafternoon Wednesday, the retailer issued a statement saying its own request for information was "overwritten and incorrect." The firm is "not building a national, integrated low-cost primary health care platform," says the statement by Dr. John Agwunobi, a senior vice president.
The information request begins with the exact wording that Agwunobi says is incorrect, saying Walmart ďintends to build a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform.Ē (A: So they go on through this crazy speech for a while and theyíre definitely going ahead with it.)
Itís interesting too, that like in the movie Idiocracy, itís supposed to be set in the future but itís pretty well here, I think myself. Your health care is, you go into this place, you all stand in line, and thereís one-armed bandits on the sides there if you get bored, things like that, to keep your heads interested in something. Then you go up to the desk and the woman asks you, she just points at a little flowchart Ė everythingís flowcharts now, thatís how medicine is done Ė and she points to the different things. If itís pain, you see a picture of a head with a zigzag, thatís pain in the head. Then thereís one with pain in the knee. Youíre supposed to pick the one that you want, because thatís what itís coming down to today with flowcharts; doctors just canít diagnose now, you know. Itís all flowcharts. Itís like that. So Idiocracy is alive and well. Even the guy in Idiocracy, one of the guys there was supposed to have taken his law degree at Costco I think he said, because Costco now caters for everything. They certainly know whatís all coming, donít they? Iíll put that up tonight too.
And then, in Food Safety, a very interesting article. It says...
Breaking News for Everyoneís Consumption:
Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn't Honey
Ultra-filtering Removes Pollen, Hides Honey Origins
foodsafetynews.com / Andrew Schneider / Nov 7, 2011
More than three-fourths of the honey sold in U.S. grocery stores isn't exactly what the bees produce, according to testing done exclusively for Food Safety News.
The results show that the pollen frequently has been filtered out of products labeled "honey."
The removal of these microscopic particles from deep within a flower would make the nectar flunk the quality standards set by most of the world's food safety agencies.
The food safety divisions of the World Health Organization, the European Commission and dozens of others also have ruled that without pollen there is no way to determine whether the honey came from legitimate and safe sources. (A: This is the key to it, why itís taken out, and theyíll probably sell the rest as vitamins, mind you.)
In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration says that any product that's been ultra-filtered and no longer contains pollen isn't honey. However, the FDA isn't checking honey sold here to see if it contains pollen. (A: Why is that? Itís because they know darn well itís not made in the USA.)
Ultra filtering is a high-tech procedure where honey is heated, sometimes watered down and then forced at high pressure through extremely small filters to remove pollen, which is the only foolproof sign identifying the source of the honey. It is a spin-off of a technique refined by the Chinese, who have illegally dumped tons of their honey - some containing illegal antibiotics - on the U.S. market for years. (A: Plus a lot of toxins off the stuff theyíre spraying over there.)
Food Safety News decided to test honey sold in various outlets after its earlier investigation found U.S. groceries flooded with Indian honey banned in Europe as unsafe because of contamination with antibiotics, heavy metal and a total lack of pollen which prevented tracking its origin.
Food Safety News purchased more than 60 jars, jugs and plastic bears of honey in 10 states and the District of Columbia.
The contents were analyzed for pollen by Vaughn Bryant, a professor at Texas A&M University and one of the nation's premier melissopalynologists (A: Thatís the name of it.), or investigators of pollen in honey. (A: Iíll read a little bit more on this particular article when I come back; itís interesting to see whoís actually dumping it on the stores; the big boys are in on it of course. Back with more after this break.)
Hi folks, Iím back Cutting Through The Matrix and talking about honey and how you canít get food anymore. They call it food and it kind of looks like food, etc, but itís not food anymore. Itís all junk weíre getting and thatís why folk are getting sicker too; unless youíre very wealthy you can afford the real thing, and not too many folk can. So anyway, hereís honey gone as well. It says here that...
The contents were analyzed for pollen by Vaughn Bryant, a professor at Texas A&M University and one of the nation's premier melissopalynologists, or investigators of pollen in honey.
Bryant, who is director of the Palynology Research Laboratory, found that among the containers of honey provided by Food Safety News:
ē 76 percent of samples bought at groceries had all the pollen removed, These were stores like TOP Food, Safeway, Giant Eagle, QFC, Kroger, Metro Market, Harris Teeter, A&P, Stop & Shop and King Soopers.
ē 100 percent of the honey sampled from drugstores like Walgreens, Rite-Aid and CVS Pharmacy had no pollen.
ē 77 percent of the honey sampled from big box stores like Costco, Sam's Club, Walmart, Target and H-E-B had the pollen filtered out.
ē 100 percent of the honey packaged in the small individual service portions from Smucker, McDonald's and KFC had the pollen removed.
ē Bryant found that every one of the samples Food Safety News bought at farmers markets, co-ops and "natural" stores like PCC and Trader Joe's had the full, anticipated, amount of pollen. (A: So theyíre the only ones that had it.)
And if you have to buy at major grocery chains, the analysis found that your odds are somewhat better of getting honey that wasn't ultra-filtered if you buy brands labeled as organic. Out of seven samples tested, five (71 percent) were heavy with pollen. All of the organic honey was produced in Brazil, according to the labels. (A: Thatís fantastic, eh, you have to get the real stuff from Brazil.)
The National Honey Board, a federal research and promotion organization under USDA oversight, says the bulk of foreign honey (at least 60 percent or more) is sold to the food industry for use in baked goods, beverages, sauces and processed foods. Food Safety News did not examine these products for this story.
Some U.S. honey packers didn't want to talk about how they process their merchandise.
One who did was Bob Olney, of Honey Tree Inc., in Michigan, who sells its Winnie the Pooh honey in Walmart stores. Bryant's analysis of the contents of the container made in Winnie's image found that the pollen had been removed.
Olney says that his honey came from suppliers in Montana, North Dakota and Alberta. "It was filtered in processing because North American shoppers want their honey crystal clear," he said.
The packers of Silverbow Honey added: "The grocery stores want processed honey as it lasts longer on the shelves." (A: Anything thatís processed, you understand, has got a lot of nutrients taken out.)
However, most beekeepers say traditional filtering used by most will catch bee parts, wax, debris from the hives and other visible contaminants but will leave the pollen in place.
Ernie Groeb, the president and CEO of Groeb Farms Inc., which calls itself "the world's largest packer of honey," says he makes no specific requirement to the pollen content of the 85 million pounds of honey his company buys.
Anyway, you just scroll down and you find that a lot of it is coming in from India and I think China as well. So it shouldnít surprise us. Theyíre laundering the stuff from China. And thatís why there was a lot of bans on China stuff. Itís because itís contaminated with pesticides and also with heavy metals. In fact, the fields over there, theyíre using water straight from the rivers that are highly polluted from all the industry. Iíve seen a couple of documentaries on it and it shows you them using it straight out of the river and pouring it along the lines of crops and so on. And the stuff is so HEAVY in heavy metals; itís highly toxic. Thatís why we were banned from eating any of their foods for a while, and actually it should still be, but of course money talks and guys who import, in the government at least, thatís their job to oversee this stuff, are highly corruptible. So thatís why a lot of the stuffís back on the shelves again, and not just honey obviously.
And Justice Breyer, itís interesting how these guys live in their ivory towers and their own little circles and they go to their own little parties and they never mix with anybody else outside their circles, I could say class, if you like, too.
Justice Breyer warns of Orwellian government
(A: Like he hasnít noticed till now, eh?)
thehill.com / Sarah Peters - 11/08/11
A Supreme Court justice on Tuesday expressed major concerns that the government would engage in round-the-clock surveillance reminiscent of the totalitarian world of the George Orwell novel 1984 if the court ruled in the government's favor.
The court heard oral arguments in the Jones case, in which the outcome will determine whether warrantless GPS tracking by law enforcement is an invasion of Fourth Amendment protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
Justice Stephen Breyer questioned what a democratic society would look like if people believed the government was tracking them for days at a time. (A: Well, look around you [Alan laughing.]... thatís what they are.)
"If you win this case, then there is nothing to prevent the police or the government from monitoring 24 hours a day the public movement of every citizen of the United States,Ē Breyer said. ďSo if you win, you suddenly produce what sounds like 1984 from their brief."
U.S. Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben contended that if all Americans viewed warrantless tracking as an Orwellian invasion of privacy, Congress would step in with a legislative solution.
Chief Justice John Roberts said that unlike earlier technology, GPS tracking gives law enforcement a ďmosaicĒ that gives them the ďwhole pictureĒ rather than just a slice of it.
Police suspected D.C. nightclub owner Antoine Jones of dealing cocaine and used a GPS tracker over the course of a month to trace his movements to a stash house in Maryland. (A: ...which they could have done just by following him.) Their warrant was expired when they installed the tracker.
So they always use somebody that theyíve caught. They could catch one, but how many thousands and millions are getting tracked for no reason at all, eh? It goes on to mention smart phones and various other techniques that theyíre using. They have voice recognition on everybody on the planet and stuff like that, so old stuff. Heís just waking up, poor old judge, eh? Back with more after this break.
Hi folks, Iím Alan Watt, weíre back Cutting Through The Matrix. This article here, it says Overpopulation is a Myth. Itís quite interesting. Iíll put this link up too. All these links I put up, remember, at the end of the broadcast at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. You can have a good look through this. It goes through a question and answer type thing and it says here...
Episode 5: 7 Billion People: Will Everyone Please Relax?
It's a huge number. But it's not what you think.
You are very confident about the earthís population leveling off and then falling. How can you prove this? After all, population is still growing.
Population is still technically growing, but according to the United Nation Population Divisionís numbers, that growth is slowing dramatically. (A: Now, the United Nations inherited that division, like all their divisions, from the League of Nations and back in 1919, 1920 they were talking about ohh, the coming overpopulation problem. So they set up the United Nations Population CONTROL Department, which they now call the United Nations Population Division. Sounds better doesnít it? So hereís the United Nations Population Division giving you the numbers, which are said to be the most accurate, because they get all the census stuff across the planet. And we donít even know what theyíre talking about with Africa and that. Do they really do accurate inventories of people there too and so on? We donít know what they fudge. Anyway it says...)
The United Nations Population Division (UNPD) is the most reliable source of population statistics in the world, which is why we use their numbers for our videos. And, according to the UNPD, population growth will continue to slow down over the next few decades. In fact, if current trends persist, our growth will halt right around 8 billion by 2045. After that, our numbers will start to fall off, slowly at first, and then faster. (A: Itís amazing how they know all these things, eh?)
If you find this whole idea counterintuitive, don't worry! You're not alone. At first glance, it really does seem like population is skyrocketing. Thatís because we're still adding a billion people every few decades . . . and a billion people is a lot of people. But the way we can tell that population is not ballooning out of control is precisely the fact that weíre only adding a billion people each time. And soon, we wonít even be adding that many. (A: Actually itís more than that too. They know thereís more and more folk dying off but they donít mention that here too. Early cancers are just skyrocketing, have been for 50 years.)
You claim that the UNís predictions are reliable. How reliable have they historically been?
Again, it depends on which variant you use. In our research, weíve looked at the UNís predictions and how they have compared with real life--and in every case the ďlow variantĒ has been the most accurate. You can run the numbers yourself. (A: And they give you the link where to run them.)
Even if population growth is slowing down, a billion people every 15 years is still a lot of people. Isnít this still a problem?
It is a lot of people. And of course, greater numbers bring their own challenges and issues. But there isn't any convincing evidence to show that the size of our population is the cause of the world's most pressing issues, like war, famine, disease, and poverty.
Let's put it another way. Since we have more people, our wars are bigger. Our famines may affect more people, and more people will have diseases and be poor. But population growth didn't create these problems--they have existed since people have existed. (A: Iíll add into that too: and itís only because we have international media now that harp on about things that we know anything about it, you see.)
In other words, we can't blame population for problems that have been around forever. The only difference is, since there are more of us now, these problems affect more people.
Why has the global total fertility rate dropped so much? (A: Now, Iíve mentioned this so many times. They know whatís causing it, because believe you me, if they didnít know what was causing it, it would be a crisis; theyíd have to investigate and find out why somethingís out of their control. They know whatís causing the birthrate to fall. Iíve done all these documentaries before and talks about basically the sterilized male. Theyíre all becoming sterile very, very quickly, dysfunctional spermatozoa, that canít even find their way through a well-lit street, you know. Literally, itís thatís bad now. And the article I read recently too, even from the one on Russia, now that theyíre getting all their imported stuff too, and their foods and all their poisons, and inoculations, then also theyíve got these malformed sperm, some with 2 heads. This is something you would find if youíd beamed them with radiation or given them certain chemicals, because they can alter, genetically mutate things through certain chemicals too, which they know, the stuff they put in your food, you know.)
Scientists are still debating exactly why (A: They just donít know; itís just a big puzzle. Thereís no crisis about it.), but there's no doubt that it is happening. All over the world, birthrates have been dropping quickly, and for nearly 50 years now. (A: So they know damn well why.)
Many demographers think that it is because more and more people are urbanizing (moving into large cities). When families live out in the country on farms, it makes more economic sense to raise larger families (A: Thatís why theyíre getting you all off the rural areas under the Agenda 21 program that came from the United Nations.), so that they have people to help them and care for them in their old age. Itís also true that cities tend to have better healthcare facilities, which reduce infant mortality. (A: Iíd change that and say they have more abortion clinics which are free, which certainly do reduce infants.) This in turn means that parents end up having fewer children, since more of their existing children are surviving to adulthood. (A: What it actually does too, is there are discouragements to have children because of the cost value. Thatís a BIG one they talk about at the top all the time, and Iíve read the articles from the bigwigs themselves on the air here where they say that, thereís an economic disadvantage if you have children. And they can actually make it more and more costly all the time.)
Demographic expert Philip Longman observes, in his book The Empty Cradle, ďAs more and more of the human race find itself living under urban conditions in which children no longer provide any economic benefit to their parents, but are rather costly impediments to material success, people who are well adapted to this new environment will tend not to reproduce themselves. (A: Well, thatís how theyíve been now for years.) And many others who are not so successful will imitate them.Ē (p.31, available here) (A: Well, for about 30 years now women in the Western world havenít wanted children; most of them at least havenít wanted children. And they donít really want to get married either. Theyíve imitated the lifestyle projected by TV and soaps, and success, success is single and looking like youíre 18 until youíre 60 or 70 or whatever. And thatís a fact. Thatís actually happened.)
Overpopulation is a myth. This myth has caused human rights abuses around the world, forced population control, denied medicines to the poor, and targeted attacks on ethnic minorities and women. (A: And so on.† So Iíll put this link up tonight as well, and see how perception management works.)
Itís all perception management. And itís not enough that weíre declining like crazy. I saw an article recently where, from the United Nations World Health Organization, it said that because of the sudden introduction of money and wealth into these third world countries, these up-and-coming countries, that we are funding to come up by giving them lots of money and more jobs by putting all our factories in their countries for them, the World Health Organization says theyíre very worried about there will be a massive increase in cancer rates. Strange thing to say isnít it? I mean, why would sudden prosperity bring cancer rates? They know damn well, to make a statement like that. Because see, theyíve already done it to all of us.
Now, remember that old song, First We Take Manhattan and Then We Take Berlin?
Germany's economic colonisation of Europe
dailymail.co.uk / Simon Heffer / 8th November 2011
The elaborate pretence that the European Union and its stricken currency will shortly be saved after some little local difficulties is now becoming ever more desperate.
The coup díetat in Athens over the weekend, which saw the demise of the sitting government, is unlikely to be the last violation of democracy in the name of European unity.
No sooner was Greece whipped into submission ó though for how long and how successfully we shall see ó than Italy was placed firmly in the line of fire.
After months of posturing about what he ludicrously claims to be the soundness of his economy, Silvio Berlusconi finds his head on the same block where George Papandreouís has just been hacked off.
If the Brussels-backed putsch against Mr Papandreou was supposed to signal the beginning of the end of the euro crisis, it failed.
To start with, it is still unclear exactly where the one trillion euros the G20 summit in Cannes last week agreed would stabilise the currency is going to come from. (A: Iíd like to know where itís going TO. I mean, is there anybody taking... You know, itís one massive scam here. You understand, itís like Hitler said: if youíre going to tell a lie and make the people believe you, itís got to be a really, really outstanding lie. Because you see, ordinary folk can understand little white lies, because they might do it themselves, but they cannot believe somebody would tell such whoppers, like all that money that we threw at this country, we just donít know where itís gone, you know. The same thing as this Ďmoney heavení that they gave to the US citizenry: oh it went to money heaven, ah-ha, ha-ha, you know. Anyway.) Also, just because Greece is apparently under control again ó and, I repeat, just how Ďunder controlí is questionable ó does not mean the euro is saved. When the bond traders woke up yesterday, they turned their attention to Italy and greatly disliked what they saw.
All this is managed, as I say, to cement and totally integrate the European countries until theyíre not countries anymore, in any sense of the word whatsoever. Thatís really the point of it, because they said 100 years ago, the Milner Group that eventually morphed into the Royal Institute of International Affairs said this, that they would set up central banking systems in every country, private central banking systems, and then all these central banking systems would be linked to an international business settlement bank, which they set up in Switzerland. And eventually theyíll be the bosses of all the whole darn world. And then theyíll use the IMF and of course The World Bank to run the whole worldís money supply, and do all their bookkeeping through the IMF instead of the countries doing it themselves and so on and so on. So weíre seeing that theyíre getting exactly what they want. In other words theyíre telling you, well you see, we know none of you wanted these super central private banks, like the European Union central bank, but itís the only thing now that can save us. And everyone will say, oh well I guess theyíll have to do it. Weíre such idiots at the bottom arenít we? We really are.
How wrangle over Jerusalem is at the core of a US Supreme Court showdown
Did Congress overstep its authority when it instructed US officials to list 'Israel' as the place of birth for Americans born in Jerusalem? (A: Itís amazing what fills up their time, isnít it? Itís always the same stuff.) Supreme Court justices heard arguments Monday.
csmonitor.com / Warren Richey, Staff writer / November 7, 2011
Ari Zivotofsky (r.) stands with his nine-year-old son, Menachem, outside the Supreme Court in Washington, Monday. The Supreme Court seems unlikely to rule for a 9-year-old boy who was born in Jerusalem and wants his US passport to list his place of birth as Israel. (A: This is a political move, I mean thatís what it is, eh?)
The status of Jerusalem, bitterly contested for ages by rivals in the Middle East, has for years also divided the legislative and executive branches of the US government.
Now a law passed by Congress in 2002 instructing US officials to list ďIsraelĒ as the place of birth for Americans born in Jerusalem is at the core of a potentially historic showdown at the US Supreme Court pitting legislative against executive power.
On Monday the justices heard arguments in the case, Zivotofsky v. Clinton, examining whether Congress overstepped its authority when it passed the law.
Based on questions asked at oral argument, the justices appear inclined to leave the intricacies of foreign policy to the State Department. (A: Theyíre all scared to touch it because of the lobby within the United States. So anyway, Iíll put this link up again too, and itís a bit of trivia for people to ponder or waste their time with.)
Now, Ahmadinejad has come back from Iran with hitting out again, because he knew damn well the US had met with Israel and again they fudged all the statistics by basically browbeating the guys at the IAEA, this International Atomic Energy Agency, to lie in other words and say, well yeah, they do. And they came out with all these maps, just like we saw when Colin Powell did it, you know, when they were going to go into Iraq, all these little bumps on the map, you see these are all weapons sites and weapons of mass destruction and laboratories and... And it was all lies, all fibs and so on. SAME THING again. Same old routine, you know, as they get ready to go into Iran. So Ahmadinejad has come out and given his side of the whole darn thing. It says...
Iran Report: Ahmadinejad fights fallout from IAEA bombshell
In a major public speech, Iran's president insisted his country won't retreat one iota from its nuclear programme. (A: Now, itís supposed to be for peaceful purposes; Britainís got it, everybody else has got it. And if they do go along into creating missiles, then, you know, thatís what they all do. Israel has done the same.) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slammed the international nuclear watchdog's newly-released report suggesting Tehran might be close to developing atomic weapons. Its findings came days after Israel bluntly considered military action against Iran - raising fears the report could be a pretext to an attack. (A: And of course, the US has taken it over because they have to do all the donkey work for it. So Iíll put this up tonight as well; thereís a little video on it. I can only watch about a minute video and I get cut off by my masters.)
And this article too, itís from The Guardian...
The 1% (A: The ones who run the money, you know.) are the very best destroyers of wealth the world has ever seen
Our common treasury in the last 30 years has been captured by industrial psychopaths.
(A: Iím glad everybodyís using that term now because I really pushed it out years ago.)
That's why we're nearly bankrupt
guardian.co.uk / George Monbiot / 7 November 2011
If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire. The claims that the ultra-rich 1% make for themselves Ė that they are possessed of unique intelligence or creativity or drive Ė are examples of the self-attribution fallacy. This means crediting yourself with outcomes for which you weren't responsible. Many of those who are rich today got there because they were able to capture certain jobs. This capture owes less to talent and intelligence than to a combination of the ruthless exploitation of others and accidents of birth (A: That means born in the right families.), as such jobs are taken disproportionately by people born in certain places and into certain classes.
The findings of the psychologist Daniel Kahneman, winner of a Nobel economics prize, are devastating to the beliefs that financial high-fliers entertain about themselves. He discovered that their apparent success is a cognitive illusion. For example, he studied the results achieved by 25 wealth advisers across eight years. He found that the consistency of their performance was zero. (A: Thatís what they found with other psychopaths too, their rather moribund results, really; whenever you check them for what they actually do, thereís nothing startling about them. And itís no different when it comes to the financial sector psychopaths.) "The results resembled what you would expect from a dice-rolling contest, not a game of skill." Those who received the biggest bonuses had simply got lucky.
Such results have been widely replicated. They show that traders and fund managers throughout Wall Street receive their massive remuneration for doing no better than would a chimpanzee flipping a coin. When Kahneman tried to point this out, they blanked him. "The illusion of skill Ö is deeply ingrained in their culture."
So much for the financial sector and its super-educated analysts. As for other kinds of business, you tell me. Is your boss possessed of judgment, vision and management skills superior to those of anyone else in the firm, or did he or she get there through bluff, bullshit and bullying? (A: ...or a combination of those, and family connections I would add to that too.)
In a study published by the journal Psychology, Crime and Law, Belinda Board and Katarina Fritzon tested 39 senior managers and chief executives from leading British businesses. They compared the results to the same tests on patients at Broadmoor special hospital, where people who have been convicted of serious crimes are incarcerated. (A: Theyíre also a bit nutty.) On certain indicators of psychopathy, the bosses's scores either matched or exceeded those of the patients. (A: Theyíre more psychopathic than the patients, the guys in the money business.) In fact, on these criteria, they beat even the subset of patients who had been diagnosed with psychopathic personality disorders.
The psychopathic traits on which the bosses scored so highly, Board and Fritzon point out, closely resemble the characteristics that companies look for. (A: And that is true. They want an aggressive guy who wonít take no for an answer, right.) Those who have these traits often possess great skill in flattering (A: All psychopaths do that.) and manipulating powerful people. (A: What they do, a psychopath will stand back and heíll get everyone so easily, so easily Ė because heís so charming, you see Ė to do all the work for him. And they do it willingly, often for nothing.) Egocentricity, a strong sense of entitlement, a readiness to exploit others and a lack of empathy and conscience are also unlikely to damage their prospects in many corporations.
In their book Snakes in Suits, Paul Babiak and Robert Hare point out that as the old corporate bureaucracies have been replaced by flexible, ever-changing structures, and as team players are deemed less valuable . . . (A: Actually, Iíll continue with this when I get back; itís quite good, isnít it?)
Hi folks, Iím Alan Watt and weíre almost at the end of the hour but reading an article about psychopaths in Wall Street and all the other big places across the world, where they run the money systems and how really, theyíre mediocre; really, itís all hype. And theyíre very aggressive. They are psychopaths and theyíre almost worshipped by the big corporations, who are also staffed by psychopaths. A psychopath can only admire a higher and richer and more powerful psychopath. They hate anything beneath them. Theyíre really snobbish that way. Anyway...
In their book Snakes in Suits, Paul Babiak and Robert Hare point out that as the old corporate bureaucracies have been replaced by flexible, ever-changing structures, (A: It used to be at one time Ďteam players,í and that was the team players of the 50s, 60s and 70s, the Ďcorporate maní and all that stuff, where they all worked together.) and as team players are deemed less valuable than competitive risk-takers (A: Now they want the risk-takers.), psychopathic traits are more likely to be selected and rewarded. Reading their work, it seems to me that if you have psychopathic tendencies and are born to a poor family, you're likely to go to prison. (A: Because youíll just go smash windows and rob jewelry and stuff.) If you have psychopathic tendencies and are born to a rich family, you're likely to go to business school.
This is not to suggest that all executives are psychopaths. It is to suggest that the economy has been rewarding the wrong skills. As the bosses have shaken off the trade unions and captured both regulators and tax authorities, the distinction between the productive and rentier upper classes has broken down. Chief executives now behave like dukes, extracting from their financial estates sums out of all proportion to the work they do or the value they generate, sums that sometimes exhaust the businesses they parasitise. They are no more deserving of the share of wealth they've captured than oil sheikhs. (A: Well, look at the crimes too. I mean, look at how every single bank bought those mortgages and then would inflate the prices again, and oh itís going to be worth a fortune in the future, and then sell it upwards, upwards to the bigger and bigger banks, who all bought them quite happily and passed them on again. Utter criminals, you know, but thatís what runs the world, folks, you know. And again, they work like a big club too, remember. They do know how to work like a big club and cover each otherís gluteus maximus.)
This here is about China...
China's state broadcaster to open U.S. studio: report
reuters.com / Lucas Shaw / Nov 7, 2011
NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - China Central Television, the country's state-owned broadcaster, is opening a new hub in Washington, D.C., from which it will broadcast its English-language TV service, according to the Financial Times.
CCTV, which produces news shows widely viewed as government propaganda, expects to begin broadcasting from a D.C. studio by the middle of 2012 and produce up to six hours of original programing a day. (A: It means, in other words, that Chinaís going to add its propaganda to the USís propaganda.)
The channel is now available through cable and satellite providers in areas with large Chinese populations.
CCTV has already built a studio in Nairobi for its English-language channel to reach viewers in Africa.
In addition to its Chinese and English businesses, it also offers channels in Arabic, French and Russian. (A: So everybodyís getting in on the act with China.)
And talking about Wal-Mart earlier...
Mobile Prison Guard Towers Coming to a Walmart near You! Unbelievable. - youtube.com
These towers are like prison guard towers that they put up, and I mentioned one last night. They use them at demonstrations and things too. They go up in the air on these kind of jacks, I guess itís hydraulic jacks. They look like scissor jacks and theyíve got all this gadgetry inside to monitor everything around them. They actually have them on display in some Wal-Martís and will be putting more in I guess, in some more Wal-Martís. So Iíll put up this little video tonight and you can have a little peak at that too, to see how wonderful it is to shop at Wal-Mart. You know, they care about us so much they want to know all about you. I mean ALL about you.
From Hamish and myself from Ontario, Canada Ė where itís been pouring for 3 days and nights, steadily too; itís almost like, you know, manufactured rain, which it probably is by all the spraying Ė itís good night and may your God or your Gods GO with you. Remember too, buy the books and disks and donate because it just makes me tick over and thatís all Iím for; Iím not out to create an empire here.
