Qui Breivik?

The evidence that last week's massacre in Norway involved something more than a lone nutcase is starting to stack up...

- The possible involvement of multiple gunmen
- Ridiculously slow police response time
- The police knowing the gunman's name when they arrived
- The 'media package which emerged immediately after the shootings - including a dubious 1,500 page manifesto, suitably incriminating Facebook account and high quality portraits and photos of the gunman dressed up in a variety of deranged costumes like some kind of White Nationalist Action Man

Anders Behring Breivik posing with some chums

and so on and so on

So, yes, there are plenty of reasons to suspect 'dark actors playing games' behind the scenes

And if the profile of the gunman, as being woven by the corporate media, were that of a Muslim fanatic or a lone Internet-obsessed conspiranoid I'd acknowledge that at least some of the analyses I'm seeing in the alternative media were internally consistent and credible

However, it's a little different this time

The ideology being implicated on this occasion is the kind of anti-Islamist, White Nationalist, pro-Zionist brew which up till now the 'dark actors playing games' have been working like bastards to cultivate around the world

When ghastly characters like 'Lionhart' and Melanie Phillips, people who've spent years bigging up the TERROR!! threat in support of their ideologies, feel obliged to distance themselves from an act of terrorism I personally conclude that something unusual is going on

You don't have to do much digging to establish that the EDL and other European White Nationalist groups are Zionist funded and often quite open about their solidarity with the state of Israel

My take is that if Melanie Phillips is wetting her knickers about something the chances are that it's not that good for Zionism

Melanie Phillips - The answer to the question 'Do you want to see something *really* scary?'

However, the fact that this mass murder places Zionist-associated ideologies firmly into the frame has done nothing to prevent many on-line conspiranauts posing the question 'Cui bono?' and responding 'The Zionists'

This is a belief system I've been criticising
repeatedly in recent posts - the conviction that 'The Jews' are responsible for every event of malevolent significance in the world. A presumption nurtured by a willingness to cherry pick evidence and bend thought to gratify that belief system

It is on the increase in many of the sites that I visit, in readers' comments if not in the posts, and it's fucking up clear, critical thinking

It is no accident that the corporate media persistantly go out of their way to depict conspiracy theorists as people motivated by racial or religious agendas. Racial and religious based belief systems are easily ridiculed and, not to put too fine a point on it, they have a boundless capacity to piss people off. Well thought out, politically-based points of view are a much tougher proposition

Truth? Where's the market for that?

In the UK, back in the days before the Internet, it was possible to make a fairly reliable estimation of an individual's political viewpoint based on the title of newspaper they had under their arm; The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Express, The Daily Sport and all the rest, each had a particular target demographic. The biases were unashamed and undenied

The priority for the readers of those newspapers was not the quality of research, or the writing, or the photography or any of that nonsense. Their top concern, first and foremost, was to read material which presented events in a way that was most pleasing to their pre-existing world view

Curiously, apolitical readers of the back pages of newspapers often genuinely were interested in non-partisan, well-written, well researched articles, accompanied by decent photography. Which is why you could sometimes screw up guessing a person's politics by their choice of newspaper, if they'd only bought it for the sports coverage

The reason why I'm raising the subject of people prioritising their world-view ahead of their thirst for objectivity is that I've just finished reading Webster Tarpley's take on the recent massacre in Norway...

Norway Terror Attacks a False Flag: More Than One Shooter on Island; Oslo Police Drilled Bomb Blasts; Was It NATO’s Revenge for Norway’s Decision to Stop Bombing Libya?

Washington DC, July 24, 2011 – The tragic terror attacks in Norway display a number of the telltale signs of a false flag provocation...

As I was reading the piece I was overcome with the same sense of frustrated tedium that I've been feeling recently as I plough through most of the 'alternative' news and commentary on the web. In that respect, I'm not singling Tarpley out. His article on Behring Breivik simply typifies the laziness that I think is corrupting alternative analyses of current events

What's my problem with Tarpley's piece?

For starters this 'number of telltale signs of false flag terror' stuff is way too reminiscent of the cliched 'all the hallmarks of Al-Qaeda' nonsense that mainstream commentators trot out five seconds after anything bad happens in the world

And the parallels with mainstream presstitution don't end there. Tarpley and countless other 'Truthers' started banging out their analyses of the massacre whilst the bodies were still warm. The result was not informed commentary but mounds of speculative verbiage - where the absence of facts and carefully thought out conclusions was compensated for by a pile of 'what ifs' and 'maybes'

And whilst I'm on the subject of carefully thought out conclusions, the last time I looked the whole purpose of a 'false flag op' was to create the appearance that it was carried out by another entity. So how does framing up reactionary white supremacist lunatics 'punish' the Norwegian state for refusing to bomb Libya or, as others are writing, for its friendly relations with Palestine?

If this were a false-flag op to punish Norway wouldn't the idea be to implicate Libya, or Palestine, or Muslims in general? Why would Zionist or other establisment gangs stage an atrocity which discredits an ideology they've worked like bastards to cultivate and which they need to maintain now more than ever?

The Muzzers are soooooo going to catch it for this one

There's no serious critical or original thought going on in Tarpley's piece; no more than in most of the other alternative commentary I've read. The writers are just simply filtering through the material as it becomes available and cherry-picking that which fits their pre-established narratives. The end result is a certainty of conclusion that is a 'characteristic hallmark' of the most blinkered, the most confirmation-bias afflicted and the most thoughtless


Mainstream Conspiraloons #120 - Matthew Parris multipack

Matthew Parris - completely off his tits

An absolutely superb torrent of unrelenting mainstream loonery from Matthew Parris which would have been lost for all time behind The Great Paywall of Murdoch if someone hadn't lifted it onto their blog...

The next 20 scandals. So you won’t be shocked

1 Many prison officers are complicit in the supply of drugs within prisons. How else do I reconcile what’s common knowledge — that drug use is rife in prison — with the almost abusive security checks I’ve undergone when I visits friends in prison? Among the reasons for these checks must sometimes be the protection of a monopoly.

2 Nothing like a real competitive market exists among banks or energy suppliers. They are classic cartels, robbing their customers.

3 Many sporting records that still stand — and not just in cycling — have been fuelled by performance-enhancing drugs. Have you noticed the plateauing or even dropping off of many winning times, including in my own former sport of long-distance running? This is because of anti-drug enforcement. There will be more and much bigger stories here than have yet been told.

4 Insider trading. It’s absolutely endemic. In many spheres and all sorts of ways within the financial world, nothing even approaching a free, fair or open market exists. The protection and enhancement of entrenched advantage is, to a far greater degree than capitalist competition, the key dynamic in many markets.

5 The stock exchange has all but lost its original purpose — the financing of new business — and become a turbo-charged, non-stop poker school for a huge, wealthy, essentially unproductive and largely parasitic class. Unfortunately for my argument, Britain makes a lot of money from this...

Lots more here, absolutely heaps

A lone gunman narrative that has it all...

including the all-important triple name thing...

Anders Behring-Breivik

I'm waiting for the dust to settle on this one

The mainstream media started off with 'It woz the wogs wot done it'

A large chunk of the alternative media is playing with 'It woz the yids wot done it'

No-one seems to think Anglo-Saxons are capable of slaughtering people on their own account any more

How the mighty have fallen

'Christian' Doublethink

For reasons I'll get into in a future post I've been mulling over the nature of belief and the internal contradictions within certain belief systems

Top of my list of belief systems with internal contradictions is evangelical Christianity

Having not been raised in a 'born again' tradition, evangelical Christianity came as a bit of a surprise to me when I started bumping into evangelicals and the strange, rather scary take some of them had on how a supposedly Loving Creator goes about his business

I also couldn't help noticing that members of certain evangelical communities were very big on quoting that ode to genocide, the Old Testament, and the bits in the New Testament that follow accounts of the life of Jesus. They were much more selective about what they quoted from Jesus Christ himself and accounts of his life

All that stuff about sharing, turning the other cheek, embracing outcasts and unconditional love barely got a look in

Which struck me, and still does, as rather peculiar behaviour for people who claim to be followers of Jesus' teachings

Someone asked me yesterday about one particular inconsistancy within evangelical Christianity

The End Times thing

The subject came up because there is a significant overlap between people who are sceptical of 'Official Narratives' and evangelical Christians who believe that they are among The Elect, blessed to be around during the run up to Armageddon and battling in a holy war against Satan and his End Game (which includes state-sponsored false flag terror ops)

They know this because it has been prophesised

One thing that has always struck me as peculiar with this belief is that it seems to presuppose that either a) Satan hasn't read the Bible or b) Satan has read the Bible but reckons he can outwit the Creator of Everything and change the ending

Nope, it's not working for me I'm afraid

And then there's the small matter of Jesus' own words, as quoted in the divinely inspired Word of God - The Gospel of Matthew 24:36-44...

"36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. ... 42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

Jesus' position on End Time prophecies couldn't be much clearer could it?

I freely admit that I like Christianity, as defined by the words and actions attributed to Jesus. The intolerant, arrogant, inconsistent belief system that some people practice and describe as Christianity has got fuck all to do with either

The capacity to adhere to a belief system which is contradicted internally by its own teachings is more Orwell than Jesus

Another proper Charlie, sorry, Johnnie

I've noticed some speculation here and there about yesterday's flanning of Rupert Murdoch by zany, madcap, UK Uncut* co-founder Jon May-Bowles

A common line of thought being that Johnnie was deliberately allowed to deliver his load so that Murdoch would garner some sympathy from the viewing public and also to serve as a distraction from the heinous matters being discussed

Speaking as someone who prefers his unverifiable hypotheses to be more (L)assagne-like; with at least a couple of layers, I favour the possibility that the flanning served as both a distraction from the hearing *and* a reminder to Murdoch of his vulnerability

There does, after all, appear to be a huge pissing contest taking place in the UK amongst various establishment gangs - which kind of flies in the face of those who believe there are no cabals and those who believe that there is essentially only one

An alternative explanation for Johnnie's behaviour would be simply to take things at face value; as many of the warm and supportive Youtube commentators have done underneath this video of Johnnie strutting his rib-tickling stuff down in the hood in Stockwell...

"Congratulations, you fucking dick - you've just guaranteed tomorrow's headlines will be dominated by some posho wannabe activist and shaving foam rather than the abuse and corruption of the Murdochs. Oh, and you're fucking shit as well."

"You disrupted one of the most important criminal investigations in British history to get your grubby little fifteen minutes of fame. Congratulations, you attention-seeking cunt."

"he attacks old men and gets beaten up by middle aged women
jonnie fucking marbles.... the least funny man in the world"

"Oh, what a surprise, listen to the posh twat. What’s the betting that Jonathan May-Bowles turns out to be another middle-class knob from the home counties, like 99% of these over-privileged, activist, leftie, anarchist pricks are."

Any similarities to Charlie Veitch are entirely structural and class-based


* = I've not been exactly what you might call a fan of the activism to date, typified by UK Uncut, which has been directed at the austerity program promised by the UK government and banking system. My take is that the activists are currently flogging a dead horse and until they start talking about structural reform, rather than tinkering with a bit more tax here, a little more spending there, I will continue to look upon them as attempting no more than putting lipstick on a pig. The counter to my point of view is that these activists have to go through a learning process and will eventually conclude, as a result of their trials and tribulations, that structural reform is needed. Fine, let them learn...

I'm going to get medieval on your arse - pt. 1 and a bit

Christchurch's ex Central Business District

I've been meaning to write a piece for a months now about the Fukushima earthquake and some of the more imaginative assertions which have appeared on the Internet about the how, why and who made (sic.) it happen

I'm still planning to get round to it, whenever I feel up to the shit I'll get for writing it

As part of a discussion of the theories about what happened to Fukushima I was going to mention how little coverage the alternative media has given to the earthquake that hit Christchurch just before Fukushima. No, make that three major earthquakes and 7,500 aftershocks that have pounded a city that had no recorded history of seismic activity until it started ringing like a bell a year ago

Anyway, I'm pre-empting what I want to write about Fukushima and Christchurch because there's a story brewing in the land of the Long White Cloud which will be of particular interest to those who believe that 'The Jews' have, courtesy of HAARP, now taken charge of all tectonic activity on the planet...

"LATEST: Prime Minister John Key has confirmed one of three Israelis killed in the Christchurch earthquake was carrying multiple passports but is refusing to go into further detail because it is not in the national interest.

The police national computer has been under scrutiny in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake in February because of fears Israeli agents loaded software into the system that would allow backdoor access to highly sensitive intelligence files.

The Security Intelligence Service ordered the checks as part of an urgent investigation of what one SIS officer described as the suspicious activities of several groups of Israelis during and immediately after the earthquake.

Three Israelis were among the 181 people who died when the earthquake destroyed most of Christchurch's central business district on February 22. One was found to be carrying at least five passports.

An unaccredited Israeli search and rescue squad was later confronted by armed New Zealand officers and removed from the sealed-off "red zone" of the central city.
Key was asked repeatedly today to confirm details of an SIS investigation into whether the Israeli secret service had infiltrated the police national computer after three Israelis were killed and other Israeli citizens fled the country..."

All the old favourites are there - multiple passports, hacking of national computer systems, Chabad safe houses, Israeli humanitarian aid teams that are not anything of the sort...

But, for the life of me, I can't see how the Magic Jew Earthquake Machine fits into the story

Israel, of course, has form when it comes to ripping off Kiwi passports for use by its fearless, globe-trotting back-shooters - and this story from 2004 is particularly heart-warming; featuring as it does Israeli agents befriending a victim of cerebral palsy on the basis that he would have never needed a passport and no-one would notice if someone applied for one in his name

Of course, if the state of Israel behaved a little more like New Zealand its employees could use their own fucking passports


The F Word

Just a thought, but I can't help noticing that the mainstream media have been scrupulously avoiding any reference to profanity in their coverage of the Conspiraloon wet dream currently engulfing the nation...

Comedy Infiltration?

There's a new character currently doing the rounds on the Conspiraloon Circuit...

Tony Farrell was senior intelligence analyst for South Yorkshire police for 17 years, who underwent a Truth Epiphany in July 2010, submitted an intelligence report to management which identified the New World Order as a bigger terrorist threat than Radical Islam and was subsequently fired for his beliefs

So far, he's told his tale on the Alex Jones show and an orbiting starship, as well as being written about in several blogs and Conspiranoid websites

What interests me about Farrell's treatment by the alternative media thus far is just how easy a ride and warm a reception he's been getting

This is, after all, a milieu where it is normal to be accused of being a government operative or Zionist shill on the flimsiest of pretexts

Unless, that is, you are an ex(?)-police employee with an inconsistent back-story who appears from out of nowhere and says he's one of You now

Apparently, he's just got to be OK

Here's a provisional list of issues I have about this character which will doubtlessly change as he continues to ply his meagre wares...

  • The J7 Truth Campaign 7/7 Inquests blog and website are currently the most detailed and comprehensive critiques available of the 7/7 inquest and the Official 7/7 Narrative. Farrell has made no reference to either; preferring instead to cite secondary sources. You really would have to deliberately go out of your way not to refer to J7 when talking about issues arising from 7/7
  • Nor has Farrell made any attempt to communicate with J7 even though he is currently popping up everywhere else. This behaviour with regard to J7 is inconsistent with Farrell's stated desire to spread awareness of 7/7 'Truth'. The key differences between J7 and the other groups Farrell has referred to and dealt with are that J7 maintains a sceptical approach to promoting alternative 7/7 narratives and researches the material it publishes thoroughly. I can think of no reason why someone playing a straight game would stear clear of that
  • Farrell has currently made little of that fact that he was a police analyst in the same county that three of the four alleged bombers came from. If he didn’t encounter material that offers new insights into the Official 7/7 Narrative in the five years that followed the bombings I would consider that extremely peculiar. Thus far he has simply recycled selected highlights of existing 7/7 lore and nothing more
  • Farrel was dismissed in September 2010 and waited until June 2011 to publicise his story. The delay has not been explained. Farrell is now trying to drum up support and potential 'expert' witnesses for his dismissal hearing, scheduled for early September 2011. No Truther knew this man from Adam a month ago and now he's trying to get people who know nothing about the circumstances of his case to become involved in a hearing
  • The examples of reasons to doubt the Official 7/7 Narrative Farrell has cited so far include tendencious, potential red herrings; such as a claim that two of the alleged bombers were 'most probably' shot at Canary Wharf. For a allegedly Senior Intelligence Analyst, Tony appears to have a limited capacity to distinguish shit from shoeshine
  • I've discussed Farrell's recent interviews with a few fellow sceptics and we all seem to share a vague sense that Farrell, putting it politely, does not exactly exude a powerful forensic intelligence. He does not come across as being anlytical, informed, or any way energised by the material he is discussing. He simply doesn't, to my ears anyway, ring true
This man is an ex(?) police employee who brings nothing new to the table and is recycling selected 7/7 anomalies and red herrings

Farrell might be what he claims to be. However, as things stand, the persona he has projected so far is completely indistinguishable from a poorly implemented, low-budget attempt to co-opt 7/7 Scepticism by the intelligence community

In fact the strongest reason I currently have for believing that Farrell is an honest Truther is my doubt that the intelligence community would try a stunt as half-arsed, verging on the comical, as this. Spooks must take some pride in their work, surely?

Alex Jones closed his recent interview with Farrell by inviting him on as a resident criminologist to help break down and analyse incidents other than 7/7

It would appear that Farrell is not the only person incapable of distinguishing shit from shine

One to keep an eye on...

Charles Veitch has such lovely teeth

When I first went to university in the early 1980s I got to know one group of students, all ex private schoolboys from well to do backgrounds, who were members of the Socialist Workers Party. You could tell they were working class at heart, if not in background, by the donkey jackets and Doc Martens they wore

The 1984 Miners’ Strike was in full, bad-tempered, swing at the time. My SWP acquaintances would regularly zip up to potential confrontational hot spots with a view to getting stuck into police lines, in solidarity with their striking ‘comrades’

These passionate revolutionaries subsequently got their degrees and went off to work in accountancy, banking and legal firms; with a view to partnership and rearing the next generation of middle-class dickhead student activist

The miners, of course, all ended up on their arse and I doubt if many of them went on to become partners in City law firms

My mistrust of activists from privileged backgrounds consequently goes back almost 30 years

An ex-girlfriend of mine had an expression for rich kids who get down with the common people for a time, often fuck things up, and then return to pursuing their own genuine class interest. She’d spot one a mile off and mutter ‘down at heel, a mouthful of dental steel’

They do have such lovely, well-maintained teeth

Which brings me back onto the subject of Charles ‘Charlie’ Veitch

Veitch's latest outrageously satirical Youtube video. I got as far as 3:22. If he stops being a cock anywhere before the end of the clip could someone let me know

For the reasons outlined above, I freely admit that I was prejudiced against Veitch from the moment I first became aware of his existence

On the other hand, he did start off his Internet career by promoting the kind of subversive, non violent approach to activism that I personally warm to

So, I gave him the benefit of the doubt

...right up until he took a great big dump on the 9/11 Truth Movement, and the conspiratorial view of the world in general, a few days back

People have commented here and elsewhere that it does not matter that a solitary 9/11 Truther has publicly recanted his conspiratorial views

On one level that’s true. Veitch is not a 9/11 researcher and after listening to his reasons for accepting the Official 9/11 Narrative it is clear that he is either not very informed about 9/11 or pretending to be not very informed about 9/11. He is simply recycling pre-existing arguments in support of the Official Narrative and offering no good reasons for an informed 9/11 sceptic to adjust their opinion

However, the Veitch recantation may be useful to promoters of Official Narratives in other ways

I have seen no evidence which conclusively proves that Veitch is a conscious cognitive infiltrator. However, Veitch himself freely admits that he changed his views on 9/11 as a result of being part of a BBC production on the subject of 9/11 conspiracy theorists

So, at the very least, Veitch himself has been the successful subject of a deliberate act of cognitive infiltration

Which makes him a very special little muffin indeed

I cannot think of another case of a high profile ‘conspiracy theorist’ successfully being converted back to a non-conspiratorial world view

Praises be! The pickle has been turned back into a cucumber. The cult fanatic has been successfully deprogrammed back to being a ‘normal’ person

The BBC is going to make a meal out of this conversion in its 9/11 Conspiracy Road (to Damascus) Trip, big time

There are parallels with the BBC’s earlier 7/7 Conspiracy Files production, which also featured a leading (sic.) conspiracy theorist who hadn't been on the scene for very long before the programme was made and who was more than happy to be presented as a delusional idiot on national television

At a time when the resources available for investigative journalism are so meagre most productions have to be put together in a matter of weeks, the BBC still manages to devote months, sometimes years to the preparation of hit pieces targeted at conspiracy theorists

And the cherry on the cake for any self-respecting BBC hit piece worth the resources lavished upon it is the inclusion of at least one fool, whose ego is greater than his intellect, willing to offer himself up for ritual sacrifice

When all is said and done, no-one has ever became a Truther or stopped being a Truther as a result of watching the BBC. The service provided by the BBC is to provide viewers with narratives that at least appear to explain what’s going on in the world. It doesn't really matter if those narratives stack up or not, as the target audience won’t be subjecting those narratives to critical scrutiny

Contrary to the standard BBC psychobabble, there is nothing comforting about a conspiratorial world view. The average television viewer probably understands that, albeit subconsciously, and their psychological defence mechanisms cut in. The BBC exists to nurture and feed those defence mechanisms

Personally, I’m going to continue to keep an eye on Veitch’s antics because there’s more to come, that’s for sure. I’m going to do so, partly for pure entertainment value but mostly because I’m fascinated by the pathology of the cognitive disruption game

Thus far, my gut feel is that the sophistication of the mass of on-line loons is currently developing faster than the tactics and stunts being rolled out to deal with them - the controlled demolition of Charles Veitch included

Charles Veitch - off my Christmas card list

Hands up, I admit that I've linked to a couple of videos from Charlie Veitch's Love Police in the past

However, in recent months I've been somewhat uneasy about Charles' place in the scheme of things.

There was that business a few months ago when Charles posted a video of him and his girlfriend; glamorous, pouting, reality TV contestant Silkie Carlo, bigging up Julian Assange

Then he turns up in support of that personal hero of mine and 21st century British equivalent of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Lord Muad'dib of Canvey island (that was at the trial timed to coincide with the conclusion of the 7/7 inquest)

Then there was Veitch's well-publicised 'pre-crime' arrest before the recent royal wedding and Veitch's peculiar pre pre-crime arrest video where he sails off with the fairies and explains that he had been treated relatively leniently by the authorities thus far because he was being true to the path laid out for him by the Cosmic Consciousness

Which doesn't work too well for me as I can think of a long list of people who have been true to their conscience and had their heads blown off as a consequence

And that's without muck-raking around Charlie and Silkie's backgrounds

But there was always the possibility that Charlie was what he purported to be

However, as Michael Parenti said, 'Trust no-one except your family. And, even then, check them out once in a while'

Charlie Veitch on 9/11...

Case closed
