The Donald’s propaganda machine has obviously overheated – The Nation

HHB Beria-Goebbels is again sicking up his formulaic bile with malice aforethought, continually absurd contradictions, post-truth obfuscation, and with lots of infantile little exclamation marks thrown in for good measure.

Take this, for example: Its out in the open, the so-called Russian collusion is nothing more than a totally made-up toxic cocktail concocted by the crooks at cnn [sic]. Yep, course it is; if you say so.

Bizarrely, the HHB wing of the Grimer Wormtongue Collective Voice contradicts this negativity by stating that CNNs highly respected journalist Van Jones actually speaks the truth by saying that it (Collusiongate) is a nothing burger!!!. So, CNN actually tells the real truth, but only when it suits The Collectives mix-and-match agenda, eh? Make one of your minds up, please.

Then theres the fantastic Alex Jones is going up [sic] thanks to his factual reporting. Going up where? This would be the same Alex Jones who takes David Icke seriously, one presumes. All of this tosh would unquestionably sit far more comfortably within the pages of the National Enquirer.

HHB Beria-Goebbels finishes off his diatribe by laughably predicting good riddance to come soon; let us all hope so, beginning with the removal of Trumps nepotistic placement system so beloved of dictators worldwide, and ending up with deserved impeachment.

10 Musical Conspiracy Theories That Demand Your Full Attention – Junkee

Paul McCartney is dead, Elvis is alive and Katy Perry is JonBenet Ramsey.

To avoid being snapped bythe paparazzi who are stationed outside her New York apartment 24 hours a day, this year Taylor Swift began leaving home hidden in a box carried by her security team.

At least, thats what one of 2017smost memorable conspiracytheories would have you believe. It mightseem like a very long bow to draw how could Swift, at 5 ft 10 inches, casually tuck herself inside a box? Does she get out ofthe box in thecar just outside her apartment, or doesshe travel inside it until she reachesher destination?

Regardless of logistics, the internet quickly became convinced that this was how Swift had been hiding from the public for months, and the whole scenario becameeven more suspicious when suddenly almost all mention of The Box Theory vanished from the internet. Just a couple of months after it set the internet ablaze, a cursory Google search will turn up scant little. So had Swift deployed her army of lawyers to strip the internet of any evidence?

Luckily, there are plenty of other batshit crazy musical conspiracies out there to keep you busy in Tay-In-A-Boxs absence, ranging from secretsong meanings to full blown murder cover-ups. Heres ten of the best.

If youre not across your lizard history, heres a primer: in 1999, British broadcaster David Icke wrote a book called The Biggest Secret,detailing his belief that the worlds political leaders and celebrities areactually a race of reptilian aliens known as the Babylonian Brotherhood.

Notable lizards apparently includeBarack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, and Pope Francis as well as Me And Bobby McGeesinger Kris Kristofferson. No, I have no idea either.

Now, these folks arent actually lizards (dont be ridiculous). Rather, Kristofferson and the others are merely descendants of the blood-drinking reptilians who came to earth 200,000 years ago and bred with humans.

Think you know who Andrew W.K is? Tryagain, sheeple.

Andrew W.K doesnt actually exist, at least not as you know him. Apparently, W.K isa character who has been played by variousdifferent actors over the years. Behind this grand schemeis a guy called Steev Mike, who was an executive producer onW.Ks debut albumI Get Wet.

Truthers are quick to point out that Mike may not actually be Mike either (because heaven knows this story needed another plot twist) and could insteadbe Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

Musicians never die, they just fake their death to get away from the paparazziand live out the rest of their days in hiding. They also eat out at Burger King sometimes.

Well, thats what people think happened toElvis, anyway. The King actually didnt die in 1977, he faked his death to throw the press off his trail. In the decades since hes been spotted multiple times: ata Burger King in Michigan, with Muhammad Ali in 1984, and even as an extra inHome Alone.

Sure, appearing in a blockbuster movie when youre supposed to be dead seems a little risky but YOLO, right?

No, Paul McCartney isnt touring Australia later this year he died in a car crash in 1967 and was replaced by a lookalike called William Campbell. Paul Is Dead Truthers have amassed a bewildering amount of evidence so support this theory, so to save time were just gonna present the key points:

On the cover of Abbey Road,Paul is the only barefoot Beatle, and the only one striding with his left foot first twothings that represent himbeing out of step with his living bandmates.

On the cover ofSgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,Paul is depicted with a hand above his head, which could indicate being blessed and given Last Rites. Hes also the only band memberfacing backwards on the other side of the album sleeve.

If you play their song Revolution 9 backwards, you can hear the words turn me on, dead man.

At the end of Lennons song Strawberry Fields Forever, a voice says I buried Paul.

And sure, McCartney himself has asserted multiple times that he is, in fact, alive but he would say that, wouldnt he?

You know what? It would be great if celebrities could stop dying and being replaced by lookalikes, thats all Im saying.

This time, its Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne. According to this theory,Lavigne died in 2003 at the height of her fame, and was quickly replaced by a lookalikecalled Melissa. Theorists point to changes in her handwriting, her vocal tone, her nose, and the shape of her eyes as evidence that the Avril of 2003 is no longer with us.

If you want to get really deep in this, dive into the thread below. 128,000 retweets cant be wrong.

Truthers: if theyre not killing someone off, theyre resurrecting children whose cause of death has already been extensively documentedby the Boulder County Coroner.

Apparently, the woman you know as Katy Perry is actually JonBenet Ramsey, the child beauty queen who was murdered in 1997. YouTuber Dave Johnson popularised the theory with a long-winded video in 2014, which went viral last year. Johnson is SERIOUSLY CONVINCED:

JonBenet Ramsey became Katy Perry. Thats a fact, hesays at the beginning of the video. So if any of you continue to lie about this person dying, you are in fact a false witness to murder and death.

Steady on, Dave.

According to Johnson, the Ramsey parents staged their daughters death (by way of a Masonic play) so that she could become famous in later life. He doesnt really explainwhythis would help Ramsey become famous, but those are mere details that Dave doesnt need to bother with.

His evidence is that Perry and Ramsey bear a slight resemblance. Thats it. He goes to the trouble of blending their photos together, which would be impressive except that it shows they look nothing alike.

Musical icon Lou Reed died in 2013 after a long battle with liver disease. Except that actuallyhe wasmurdered by pop star Lady Gaga after Reed said he didnt like her albumARTPOP.

The story goes that Reed was brought in to overseeARTPOPsmusical direction, which Gaga intended to be an homage of Velvet Underground. Reed was apparently so unimpressed with Gagas songs that he left the project, and she became so furious that she conspired to murder him with the help ofInterscope label head Jimmy Iovine and her then-manager Troy Carter.

Of course.

Reed was injected with the toxic substance polonium while he was recovering at the Cleveland clinic.Before you ask, theres absolutely no evidence to support this theory in any way. Not even a Ramsey/Perry level link.

I think weve had enough of murder and death-faking, so heres a theory thats actually someway reasonable. Swedish pop star Robyn has an extensive discography, but arguably her two biggest tracks are Call Your Girlfriend and Dancing On My Own.

Call Your Girlfriend is about someone on the verge of breaking up with their partner, while Dancing On My Own is from the perspective of a person thats just been broken up with.

Two different songs, two different protagonists OR ARE THEY?

If you thought that a woman could break into the hip-hop world with nothing but extraordinary talent and an excellent work ethic, try again!

According to one particularly slimy corner of the internet, the Nicki Minaj you know is justthe face of Jay-Zs alter ego. In order to disguise his real voice, Hov simply speeds up the raps until they sound like a woman.

Plenty of videosclaim to provide indisputable evidence to support the theory, mostly by slowing down Minajs raps until they sound (kinda, sorta, not really at all) like Jay-Z. Truthers also point to the fact that Minajs third album was calledThe Pinkprint,a reference toJay-Zs series of albums calledThe Blueprint.

Itwouldnt be a conspiracy article without mentioning these guys. Where to even begin?

The Illuminati a secret society set up during the Enlightenment era in the late 18th century is believed by some to still be operating today, with many of the worlds leaders and celebrities counted as members. They influence world events, rig award shows, keep the martians under wraps basically do everythingThe Simpsonsmentionin the Stonecutters song.

Jay-Zand Beyonce are right at the heart of the Illuminati. That diamond cutter sign Jay is always throwing up? Thats connected to the Illuminatis Eye Of Providence. Blue Ivys name? That stands for Born Living Under Evil Illuminatis Very Youngest. The real reason they had twins? They neededthree children to complete the three points of the Illuminati pyramid. Jaysclothing line is full of occult symbols and signs of Freemasonry, and hisvideo for On To The Next One is also full of Illuminati imagery.

Oh yeah, and he can apparently time travel and control peoples minds.

Its not only Jay and Bey who are in on this musicians like Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga (when shes not busy murdering people), Adele, Rihanna, Kesha, Lana Del Rey and Nicki Minaj have all been implicated in this conspiracy in someway or other. Together, theyre seeking no less than world domination.

David Icke on world domination: Who are the Illuminati and they rule the Earth – www.MICEtimes.asia (press release)

I reveal how a global secret society called the Illuminati ( the Sanctified as they call themselves) holds since ancient times in their own hands the reins of the world , their power was initially established in the middle East , then Europe, and then , by English and other European empires , has spread to America, Africa, Australia, Latest Zealand, Asia, and other places, according to David Icke.

When these empires left their collonie, there ostavili Illuminati network of secret societies and Illuminati dynasties , who continued to manage and conduct the events . There are two types of prisons or dictatorships. Some of them unadulterated dictatorship (communism, fascism, etc) , other and more effective is the hidden dictatorship masquerading as freedom. People dont rise up against slavery, ESDI think that they are free!!!

The Illuminati are implementing a painstakingly planned and coordinated a plan to create a world government, Central Bank, army, and stuffed with microchips of the population,joined to the same computer. At least some who at least a little savvy, can see that the process of implementation in reality all of the above for today goes like never before. With the goal of globalization of government made such massive enterprises as the European Alliance (born on the basis of EEC free trade area), South American Alliance (which evolved out of the NAFTA American free trade area), and the Pacific Alliance (developed from AREK Asian free trade area).

NATO (together with UN peacekeeping forces) is scheduled to become a world army, world police force, to deal with those countries who do not want to cede their sovereignty to the Illuminati world government, which , in agreement with their plans, must be formed on the basis of the United Nations.

Structure of world control is a pyramid inside of a pyramid.Like the Russian dolls : one doll inside another. Whichever company You are shpanola , You will see that it is built on the principle of a pyramid. Standing on the lower rungs of the pyramid often have no idea what the whole organization. They do their job and vorachivayutsya home every day, znayaya how what they do connects with the work of others, and vyrastai into something naslovima.

Only a few at the top know. So Makar, a few people can manage a thousand in the organization to realizovati plan, the existence of which those thousands do not even know. It is a global scheme, in accordance with which are controlled by a billion people. Personal organization, be it banks, multinational company, Empire media, NATO, etc., pouring into a huge pyramid. So Makar, Youll find, for example, that at the apex of the global banking pyramid, where all the banks , ultimately, are controlled by, are the same people the Illuminati.

The same in relation to ethnic corporations, media information, etc.. There is a global pyramid that includes the pyramids of banking, business, tools, information, military, politics, and other institutions that control the planet. On the top of the pyramid is the elite of the Illuminati, which carried out its policy of globalization are not associated through honey, in 1-St look. This particular explains the growing centralization of world power in all areas of our lives. Everything is OGNIEM AND the SAME people in accordance with the SAME program. You will find many articles on this web site that will provide You detailed information about this Plan , almost everything you find in my books that You can satisficers this website.

Illuminati manipulated the population through emotion and reason.

Ordinary people even more than the Illuminati, which, accordingly, cannot manage all at the physical level. Because they operate by manipulating the emotions and minds of the masses so that we live our lives and litsezreem the world as they wish . For example, more powerful means of manipulation one that I call problem reaction solution . He works in the subsequent way: You want to achieve something that, as You know, not like population . It can be anything : the growing power of the militia (police ), the limitation of main freedoms, even a war.

See also: Scientists have linked the emergence of life on Earth with planets-giants

You understand that if You offer this policy openly , people will react against it . So You first create a Problem : povyshenie levels of crime, greater amount of violence, terrorist acts, government crises, or You make one of your Illuminatis puppets like Saddam Hussein to get involved in the war. You will make sure that somebody else is accused of this dilemma and not You, and those who is the real premise of this difficulty . You are creating a Patsy Patsy, as they call them in America: Timothy McVeigh or Lee Harvey Oswald. Then You use your money info to tell people what they should think about you concocted the event and they need someone to blame. It privodit us to stage 2-Oh, the REACTION from people This cant continue, what are THEY going to do? That allows them to then openly offer the SOLUTION to the difficulty that they made a new law that promoted their plan for the centralization of global power or the limitations of the main freedoms.

This technique is used posovremennee, for example : programmed a bunch of teenagers and adults who descend from mind with a gun in the hands of worldwide, which immediately leads to a tightening of control over the weapon. I say this as a person does not have guns and believes passionately in nonviolence. But if were going to be realistic, we must overcome the limits of our own vision and to give to itself the report in that Illuminati seek to disarm those who would use a weapon against them.

See also: The global gas revolution. The decision of the Stockholm much worse than you think

Specifically, before Adolf Hitler began to fill concentration camps, he introduced the same anti-gun law , which we see now in the world. The time in which we live is critical .So not enough cards should be played Illuminati in the next 12 months. We stand at the crossroads of human history. We can choose freedom or fall under the control of a global fascist countries, global version of Nazi Germany.

Illuminati, the cabal controlling the world, consists of genetic hybrids resulting from the mating of reptiles alien race with people that occurred thousands of years back. The control center is not even in this dimension he is on the lower level of the 4th dimension, the lower astral as many people call it, is the usual home of demons , according to the folklore and legends. These reptiles stellar work using hybrids belonging to certain dynasties( bloodlines) because they are vibrating together comparability.

This is why European Royal and aristocratic families so manic relatives together , as well as the Eastern family of the United States to create favorites of America. All presidential elections since George Washington in 1789 , has been won by more pure candidates , and the sample is a European Royal Blood. Of the 42 presidents prior to bill Clinton, 33 have been genetically related with 2 people Alfred the Majestic, the Lord of Britain, and Charlemagne, a monarch who ruled in the area of modern France. And the same goes for all the major positions of power, everywhere one and the same tribe!

Together with the twinning only with their: to preserve genetic inheritance, Illumnati also obsessed with symbolism and rituals.

Curious what ordinary science has received confirmation reptilicas parts of the human brain (R-complex,as it is called) the source of subsequent behavioral traits of: obsession with ritual, cold blooded behavior, territorialism this belongs to me and the obsession with hierarchical structures. It perfectly depicts the mindset of the Illuminati . And if You have more of that R complex, or it is activated mainly meshes need these traits will be expressed mainly. But their ritual is not only for ceremonial purposes either free of the nightmare. Rituals created to extra fields of the energy grid of the planet and the impact of such makarom on human consciousness.

The rituals of these dynasties have not changed for thousands of years ( See. The biggest Secret for more info). They have detailed kathgodam calendar of events on the occasion which they carried out human sacrifices in coordination with key lunar, solar, and planetary cycles, all of this is to use this energy for their delusional plan to seize full control over the Planet Earth in the very near future.

Where David Icke Stands in Trump’s America – Splice Today

Trump, Jones, and Icke are bloviators and bullshit-mongers in their own way.

As a new right-wing made itself known by ham-fisted, 4chan-influenced trolling, the faux-respectable rantings of white nationalist Richard Spencer, the fever dream election of Donald Trump, his press secretary Sean Spicer on the Holocaust, and how at least Adolf Hitler didnt use chemical weapons, the question of who possess a hatred of Jewish people took on new-old importance.

For many years, and not entirely baselessly, British conspiracy theorist and author David Icke has been accused of being anti-Semitic. Not because, like Spencer, he puts on blatantly white nationalist conferences and gets punched into meme stardom. No, Icke, 64, is best known as the person who popularized the notionbelieved by four percent of respondents to a 2013 Public Policy Polling surveythat reptilian space aliens control much of our world. Reptilians are thought to be the true identities of prominent people including the British royal family, the Clintons, the Bushes, anyone named Rothschild, and, for some reason, country singer and actor Kris Kristofferson.

The Anti-Defamation League, however, has long thought that reptilians is a codeword for another sort of bloodline historically accused of impossible, devilish plots. And their suspicions are not without foundation.

Author and documentarian Jon Ronson has a long history with Icke, who appeared in Ronsons book 2001 book Them: Adventures with Extremists and its companion documentary The Secret Rulers of the World. Ronsons who I think of when I think of people who know kooks, so I invited the British transplant to New York City to sit outside Brooklyns Grand Prospect Hall while Icke goes on, and on, and on, to discuss the obvious questions which arise from this carnival of kook. One of these is whether Icke or his followers possess any particular vitriol against Jews or not.

Hes never been hostile to Ronson when he shadowed him, or in the years afterwards when theyve encountered each other, even though Ronson is himself Jewish, and wasnt entirely gentle in his portrayal of Icke or his fans. On the other hand, over pretzels and sodas, Ronson, 49, asks if I saw the anti-Semitic cartoon that was recently tweeted out on the Icke Twitter account. I didnt. Ronson says it was fairly appalling, but he cant find it, and I dont either when I scroll through the tweets.

In his previous books, of which he has many (and they appear dense and tedious, to me, at least) Icke has suggested that he believes that the barnacle-like 1903 hoax work The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is real. Hes been accused of doubting the Holocaust (though, to be fair, he doubts everything else, including the moon and reality itself). Icke looks different now than he did in Ronsons documentary. Stouter, his hair still in a hint of a gentlemans mullet, but now pure white, the former soccer player and broadcaster has made his living peddling explanations for the whole universe for more than two decades. He seem either cheerful, or just more polished than he once did, even as he spends 12 hours mostly discussing how the world is in a terrible, wicked state. (The $60-$100 ticket price in the oddly posh Grand Prospect Hall probably keeps Icke in an upbeat mood.)

Ickes views are best summed up by picturing someone sweeping the entire New Age/Occult and Conspiracy sections of your local Barnes and Noble onto the floor. There are not just aliens, but brainwashing, chemtrails, evil tones, and controlling frequencies, robotic copies of humanity. Something about the moon either not being real, or bad, or hollow. Transhumanism is going to kill us all. DARPA, Google, and robots are wicked. Pedophile rings are everywhere. Trans people are… fine (there comes Ickes stilted hippie tolerance), yet somehow encouraging children to pick their own gender identity is an evil plot intended to sow confusion. Politicians are corrupt and controlling (he had to get one right).

Icke endlessly references other New Age and conspiracy theorists, picks quotes from scientists and science articles out of context, and then backs it up with the words of Martin Luther King Jr. and characters in The Matrix and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. All of it is woven together into a ransom note of artful nonsense. The production has a hypnotic, albeit draining, quality in the moment, but afterwards, your notes are confusing and your head swims. What was that about Saturn and the Rockefellers? Life is a tiny experience in a band of frequencies. Thats good, right?

The audience appears bizarrely diverse in age, sex, and race. There are also a lot of men between the ages of 20 and 30 who are wearing crystals around their necks. Two brunette males, one with long hair, pass by me during one of Ickes very necessary breaks in speaking. One says to the other with perfect earnestness something about your vibrations…

Ickes ex-wife is here. So are both his sons. Her nametag has a subtle Linda I, but I eventually figure it out. She asks around to see if David can speak to me, but predicts that hell be tired by the end of his spiel. Four or five hours after I ask, I figure Im at least as tired. At one point, a middle-aged bespectacled man who sounds to my ears exactly like Irish comedian Dylan Moran asks Linda if Icke is ever going to wrap this up. He has to leave, he says, speaking to us in a confidential tone. Can Linda tell him how it ends? She tries to dodge. Hes got to see how it all comes together. Every hour is necessary. Finally, she yields. Love is the answer. Well, of course it is, says the Irish fellow dryly, and he shifts off before Linda or I can get a name or occupation.

The table that Linda mans has a t-shirt which pictures Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and has the words This choice is no choice. Her and Ickes towering son Jaymie is spotted wearing the shirt later. Icke can easily be filed with conspiracy king Alex Jones in the fringe section of lifeand indeed, they both pop up in Ronsons book and documentary seriesbut while Jones is full-on for Trump, and by virtue of that, has nearly become mainstream, Icke remains a space hippie. He continues to fill the void that Jones pre-Trump was supposed tothat is, trust no one on earth.

Trump, Jones, and Icke are bloviators and bullshit-mongers in their own way, but while Trumps like a drunk man at a bar whos backed you into a corner, and Jones always looks and sounds seconds away from a brain aneurysm, Icke comes off as a moderately funny, personable fellow at a cocktail party telling you what he does for a living. Still, if theres anything more self-aggrandizing than believing you can fix every problem in America by passing the correct law, it might be charging 100 bucks for a 12-hour explainer on the universe and human existence.

Outside, I ask Ronson the most obvious question of all, what the hell is Ickes deal? Prejudiced, crazy, conman, or some mixture? Ronson says he doesnt think Icke is either. Mental illness is categorized by how much distress it causes the person And I dont see David Icke as particularly distressed. Hes grossing $100,000 next door for one tour.

Doesnt that make him a charlatan then, I ask.

Ronson hesitates. Most of his work, from Them, to The Psychopath Test, to his recent dissection of the Internet at its worst, So Youve Been Publicly Shamed, can be characterized as humanizing and sympathetic to nearly every person discussed, no matter how foolish or flawed, or occasionally criminal. Some people dont like that about Ronsons work. After all, Icke is making a lot of money with a lot of nonsense, and maybe thats not such a great thing?

Maybe not, but Ronson has been deeper into the conspiracy world than Ill ever be, and he still has a gooey spot for people like Icke. Ronson is right. Icke also doesnt seem upset that he used to hear voices, thinks he was the son of God, and currently believes that the world is controlled by beams from Saturn. I think everything David Icke says, he believes, Ronson says. Perhaps, Ronson suggests, Icke is just immersed in his topic, the way Ronson has been in psychopathy, public shaming, conspiracy theories, and any other book subject. Icke, well, maybe the thing hes found is justmore nutty.

Ronson, who authored a Kindle single on Jones, Trump, and the alt-right called The Elephant in the Room, says its clear that while Jones popularity fluctuates, and is now increasing because hes hopped on the Trump train, Icke has kept a more constant, solid level of support since he first suggested that he might be Jesus, and really kicked it into high gear when he learned about the Reptilian space aliens. Next door is not the Nuremberg rally, says Ronson. Its a thousand spiritually anti-New World Orderits the same as it ever was. The only difference is that Trump is a fan of this [fringe] stuff, so hes brought them into his campaign. But thats different than saying theres a huge groundswell of these people, theres like loads more than there used to be. I think thats a really important distinction. Icke has been more or less en vogue over the years, says Ronson.

Two or three Hillary for Prison t-shirts float about the crowd. But on the whole, Ronson is correct that this doesnt resemble the regular right, the alt-right, or even the more 1990s-paranoid militia types. Jones, for all of his flights of fancy about conspiracies he cannot prove, doesnt go in for what Ronson dubs Ickes spiritualityenergy, and vibrations, and you know, we actually have more than five senses, we havenine senses, I dont know how many senses. Furthermore, Icke sums up the recent election with a disgusted, dismissive which psychopath do you want in officethis one, or this one?

The audience is here for the long haul, but they do seem more entranced by talk of the reptilians than by the bit about Saturns evil rays for which I spaced out. Ronson agrees that the 12-foot lizards are a bit of a millstone around Davids neck, rather how Trumps most ardent fans waited with great excitement for him to mention the wall, and who is going to build it, sometimes with eyes glazed over in the interim.

Ronsons Secret Rulers of the World segment on Icke spends a lot of time covering the goofy Canadian activists who think Icke is a prejudiced menace to their nation, and must be barred from speaking. The result is less-than-flattering towards them. However, Ronson remains agnostic on the prejudice question until he ends the documentary by relating how he overhears a member of Ickes circle referring to one protester as the fat Jew.

Now, he says that Ickes website once linked to The International Jew, a book thats about as bad as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of paranoid, fanciful hatred of that particular group. Ronson tells me, Icke definitely attracts anti-Semites. I saw that with my own eyes

I see it as well.

Critiquing Israel as a country, or even feeling nervous about the concept of nationalistic Zionism does not make one anti-Semitic. And Icke probably does mean actual aliens, at least to a point. However, if youre feeling particularly uncharitable, you might wonder if in his lecture, Icke calls religion the greatest form of mind control ever invented in order to dissuade people from thinking hes got any particular vendetta against Jews.

The Icke fan I interview first is Ryan Disomma, and he doesnt help allay these suspicions. The 27-year-old owner of a conspiracy/vegan/uncensored truth site called Revolution of the Mind where they expose a lot of corruption with no actual agenda to it, Disomma is uncertain about the reptilians, though humans clearly have a mysterious origin. Hes underwhelmed by Trump. Unless you have Rothschild and Rockefeller blood or impossible sums of money, the political process is all for show. When asked if Icke is prejudiced against Jews, Disomma dismisses it. Its just hes generalizing a certain aspect of people. His level of understandinghe knows exactly who hes talking about, whereas some of the general population takes it more literal and not so general, like hes talking about. Hes exposing kind of what Hitler was exposing and going after, and stuff, its just some peoples understanding is not there yet.

Uh, Hitler?

Hitler was going after a bloodline that he knew was going to take over the world.

After some journalistic stammering, I squeeze confirmation out of Disomma that neither he nor Icke actively like Hitler. I dont agree with [Hitlers] methods, but that was his understanding, and his way of going about it, says Disomma. Icke clearly doesnt dig Hitler, since he just puts on conferences. So thats… good.

The next several Icke fans dont mention Hitler, which now feels like a disturbingly positive sign. Several think its important to be clear that disliking Zionists isnt the same thing as disliking Jews. Most of them profess to be skeptical about at least parts of the whole Icke experience. However, theyve stayed all day. And they think Icke is terrific. Hes waking people up, hes saying what you arent supposed to say. Hes opening minds.

Theyre 9/11 truthers. None of them have anything good to say about Trump.

Michelle F. is from Long Island. She sits down beside me on a bench outside the bathroom, and speaks before she notices the notebook which says its not safe to speak to me freely. Shes the only Icke fan not comfortable with sharing her full name, but is still willing to talk. Its a family affair, coming to Icke, and its not the first time. I believe everything he says, she says casually, and then later says, I am not saying he has 100 percent of the truth, but hes lifted the veil on a few things. Shes 68, black, and worked 40 years in the mental health field. She says Icke is rational. Not crazy. The Lizard People are either real space lizards, or they might just be people with an evil lizard energy. [Icke is] not saying all Jews are Reptilians, hes saying that the overlords, the people who created the state of Israel have an ulterior motive… Theyre the same people who left millions of their compatriots to die in World War II. So are they anti-Semitic? I would say so.

One exhausted man in a ball hat illustrated with a firearm and the words come and take it drove all night from Philly to see Icke, which is why he doesnt trust himself to be coherent in an official interview. He and two other guys, one tall and mustached enthusiastically debate the use of force. Come and take it thinks that Ickes peace and love is the answer bit will only go so far when they are trying to control us. Without any hate in his heart, he says, the next person who tries to take his rights, hell put in the ground. A cheerful, bearded sixtysomething is here with his wife and friends. Hes tired, but doesnt mind checking out Icke and considering it all. A 37-year-old Canadian named Jonathan Davis gives me a hug. He says he was a trained scientist, but he knows that not everything can be explained by science. He came to New York City to work for peace for a non-specified NGO, but he was helping to welcome people to the Icke event.

The seminar finally ends with Ickes positive vibes. The last hour could be a chipper corporate-Yogi retreat; the power of love and such, just as Linda Icke promised. Now its nearly 11 at night, and 15 or 20 loyal fans linger in front of the Grand Prospect Hall to see if Icke will come out. Jaymie appears and steers his dad firmly through the crowd, and towards a waiting cab. David takes a moment to hug a few people, and express his appreciation for their appreciation. He waves goodbye.

Its sweet. They adore him, and he seems so genuine, just as Ronson said. And then my Uber arrives, and I have to go, just as a slender black woman and a brunette white guy giggle, and discuss the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as if its a factual book. The woman says she first read it 20 years ago. The man is passionate. Yes! That book! They have different rules for themselves, the Jews do. Different rules for themselves than for the rest of us.

Murder in T.B. Joshua’s church? (PART 2) | News Ghana – News Ghana

I have many friends in the intelligence agencies both within Nigeria and outside. I was at Harrow School, Kelly College and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom with many that ended up in M15 and M16 and their sister agencies all over the world and we are friends till today.

Most of them are decent, law-abiding patriots whose purpose is simply to ensure that their country is safe and that its citizens are well-protected.

One of them, who is a good friend of mine till today and who actually heads a formidable and wel-known intelligence agency, recently told me that he sees his country as a plane that is in mid-flight which is being flown and piloted by the politicians and whoever may be the President, Head of State or Prime Minister at any given point in time.

He said the role of the intelligence services is to ensure that the engine of that plane runs well and that it does not overheat or knock whilst the flight is in motion and whilst the plane is in mid-air.

This is a profound description and eloquent testimony of what the intelligence agencies are meant to do. And all over the world most of them do it very well.

These are mostly courageous and patriotic men and women who live in the grey areas of our mutual existence, who operate in the murky world of secrecy and subtefuge, who do jobs and carry out operations that few of us can do, who are hardly celebrated and who are mostly unsung yet who do such a great job at keeping us safe and who carry out such a vital and critical role. Without them we would be lost.

There is, however, also a darker side. I say this because, generally speaking, these are people that are obsessed with secrecy and haunted by some of the atrocities that they and their friends and associates may have commited in the past.

A few of them are cold-blooded and have multiple personalities. Worse still they are almost sociopathic in nature. They have no feeling, empathy or sympathy for their targets, their victims, the subjects of their enquiries or the objects of their interest.

Most relevant of all is the fact that they do not always operate within the confines and parameters of the law.

Sometimes they do the most hideous and barbaric things which is why their oath and culture of secrecy unto death is so vital.

They can be very nice and pleasant on the surface but below that they are utterly ruthless and exceptionally dangerous.

Their Nigerian counterparts are no different and I have worked closely with many of them over the years.

As it is with all intelligence agents and spies, deception and deceit is their language and their loyalty is, more often than not, to the state than to their friends and family members.

That is their training and I guess no-one can blame them for that. Finally they operate like a cult and they literally have their own strange code of conduct and coded language which is exclusive to them.

Yet despite this chilling and grim analysis quite a few of them are humane and decent people who have a deep sense of what is right and wrong and who, more often than not, wish to make amends for some of the horrific things they have done or witnessed in the past.

It was from a few of those that share this kind, generous and charitable disposition that I was given the true picture of things and the relevant information about what really happened to Prophet T.B. Joshuas church and how and why it was brought down.

I will not mention their names but I will tell their story. And that story is as follows.

They told me why the operation was carried out, how those involved covered it up and how they attempted to hit TB Joshua the second time but failed.

They told me that it was the same group of operatives that were behind the fatal crash of General Patrick Azazis (the former National Security Advisor) helicopter and how Governor Patrick Yakowa (the Governor of Kaduna state) was purposely lured on that helicopter in order for them to literally kill two birds with one stone.

They told me how the operation was conducted by rogue elements in the intelligence agencies without the knowledge of Mr. Eta Ekpeyong, the head of the Department of State Security (DSS) at the time who was totally loyal to Jonathan but with the knowledge and support of a handful of disloyal and ruthless senior operatives from other arms of the intelligence agencies who provided the logistics, hardware, man-power and funding for the operation.

They told me that there was a foreign component to the whole affair which I will touch on in part 3 of this essay.

They told me that there was a religious dimension to the whole affair and about how a group of fifth columists within the security agencies in Jonathans government had sworn that they would destabilise his government and either kill him or stop him from coming back in 2015 and how they assisted the then opposition by providing them with sensitive and often false information to use against the government.

Their view was that the country must not be ruled by a Southerner or a Christian and that Jonathan must be stopped at all costs.

T.B. Joshuas crime was that he knew too much and that he was secrety exposing their plans to those that cared for Jonathan. He needed to be discredited, stopped, kept busy, rubbished or permanently silenced.

In part 3 of this essay I will go much futher into this matter and expose far more about this issue but for now two things remains clear.

That firstly the entire horrendous episode and the terrible tragedy that occured in T.B. Joshuas church must be revisited and properly investigated by the security agencies with a view to bringing the real perpetrators, and not their victims and targets, to justice.

And that secondly the Nigerian people would do well to question ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that their government (and I mean ALL governments and not just the Buhari administration) tells them about such events or that they read, watch or listen to in what President Donald Trump so eloquently describes as the mainstream media (MSM).

At this point readers may ask, do intelligence agencies and governments actually kill people? Unfortunately the answer to that question is yes, they do.

This is especially so when they believe it is in the national security interest to do so or when they want to discredit or weaken the government that they purport to serve.

It is also pertinent to note that when they do these horrendous things they always look for someone else or some innocent group of people to use as scapegoats, to blame it on and to carry the can.

Many innocent people have either gone to jail or have been executed as consequence of this.

One should also note that oftentimes they use violent criminal networks and bloodthirsty gangsters to do their dirty work for them.

In return they give such men of the underworld official protection and sometimes even funding. Consequently when we hear that people were eliminated by the local mafia, a group of armed robbers or any other criminal gang, they may well have done so at the behest of one of the intellingence agencies and they would have been well paid for it.

As the great writer and analyst David Icke often says, nothing is ever as it seems or appears.

This is the way things work in the dark cloak and dagger world of intelligence and espionage and this is the way things are done by what has come to be known and universally described as the system.

In the parlance of that murky world they call such practices extreme measures, special ops or black ops and those that actually carry out such operations (i.e. the footsoldiers that actually pull the triggers or detonate the bombs) are referred to as wet boys because what they do is not only deadly but also wet and messy.

It is a universal practice and it is something that is well-known to anyone that has ever been in the inner circles or corridors of power. It is also utterly evil and godless.

We shall look into their modus operandi in more depth with special reference to what happened in TB Joshuas Church in the third and final part of this contribution. (TO BE CONTINUED).

ILLUMINATI MEETING? Angela Merkel makes ‘sign’ at G7 meeting as Donald Trump looks on – Express.co.uk

Mrs Merkel was pictured with Mr Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May today during G7 talks in Italy.

She is known for making her infamous “diamond” hand sign, which has been branded of masonic-style and a symbol of the alleged Illuminati by conspiracy theorists.

It is alleged by believers in the Illuminati that it is a secret organisation made up of world leaders and celebrities that actually runs all world governments from behind the scenes and intends introducing a New World Order which will see just one government running the entire world.

At its most extreme, the Illuminati is allegedly a Satanic group that uses hand signals to identify members to each other.

Mrs Merkel’s use of the sign often attracts attention and comes after a Nato meeting yesterday – which is of particular significance as conspiracy theorists believe the G7 talks and NATO are Illuminati run and part of the plan to introduce a world army.

Others photographed using the hand sign in the rhombus shape have included British Prime Minister Theresa May, and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker.

The sign is often referred to as a Merkel Diamond, due to her frequent use of it.

Mrs May was snapped imitating the ‘Merkel diamond’ while giving a speech outside the Palace of Westminster on July 11 last year.

Conspiracy theory website illuminatiRex lists the diamond sign as number one out of a top-ten of illuminati signs, with Mrs Merkel given her own section for doing it in reverse, in what it describes as the Merkel Raute.

And on the conspiracy theory forum run by David Icke, the significance of the Merkel Diamond, which has been used in political poster campaigns, has been discussed.

A senior forum member with the user name Posidon posted: “I don’t know if anyone ever noticed the Angela Merkel famous hand sign?

“I don’t know if anyone ever noticed the Angela Merkel famous hand sign?

David Icke forum member

“I found today a new picture of it in my local newspaper, and I found curious that they use her hand sign in a political campaign.

“Diamond they say? So I ask, is every one asleep these days?

“Just the first time I saw the image, I noticed it is not a diamond at all, plus the way she placed her fingers (which is not even easy) unless you really want them to be that way does not resemble a diamond at all, but a Masonic symbol of the compass and square.

“Is every one asleep? No one sees and talks about these things, is it not evident enough?”

But, Mrs Merkel, who has led the Christian Democratic Union party for 16 years, explained the reason she makes the unusual gesture in a 2013 interview, and denied there was anything sinister behind it.

In 2011, Osama Bin Laden was killed by US Navy Seals and buried at sea, but now conspiracy theorists claim that it was all a lie and he is still alive

She told a German magazine: “There was always the question, what to do with your arms, and that’s how it came about. It contains a certain symmetry.”

Other famous faces including Gordon Brown, the Duchess of Cornwall and Recep Tayyip Erdogan have also been spotted making the ‘Merkel diamond’.

Mr Trump has not been known to make the diamond sign, but he has made other hand gestures which have been alleged to be Illuminati signs.

Some conspiracy theorists claim Mr Trump is a fully signed up member of the Illuminati, but others believe he is an enemy of the Illuminati who has managed to infiltrate its top position – the US presidency.

‘Shelby National Forest’ thriving on Hi-Line – Great Falls Tribune – Great Falls Tribune

SHELBY Seventeen years ago, the first time the city earned recognition in the Tree City USA program, a skeptic quipped, Shelbys tree is doing very well.

And now?

Were working on the Shelby National Forest, Mayor Larry Bonderud joked.

Shelby, the Montana Tree City of the Year, hosts the states Arbor Day celebration on Friday, May 12, and Gov. Steve Bullock will help plant a tree as part of an 11 a.m. ceremony at the high school football field (or gym if the weather is bad).

This week the city added 45 trees to Champions Park just off US Highway 2 behind Pizza Hut. The new park commemorates the 1923 Jack Dempsey-Tommy Gibbons boxing match with interpretive signs, a medal sculpture and cement work that gives visitors an idea of the size of the venue. A DNRC Urban Forestry grant helped with the tree planting.

Justin Aikins of Simons Petroleum helped make tree planting a truly community event, Bonderud said.

Aikins, 38, studied horticulture and landscape design in Bozeman and said the more he learned about the benefits of trees in cleaning the air, in carbon sequestration, in calming people the more he was interested in planting trees in Shelby.

It just exploded into an Earth Day extravaganza, he said.

His son Kolben, 5, was planting a birch tree he named Big for the third annual Earth Day tree planting at Simons Petroleum when bankers Locke Mellot, Sam Sharples and Byron Kluth drove by and were intrigued. They placed their orders for trees on the spot and thus began a mass planting that tied in many businesses, organizations and volunteers.

Mellot already is making plans for lunches under the shade of the new tree at Bear Paw Credit Union, Aikins said.

Sam Sharples of LPL Financial volunteered to pick up the first trailer load of trees from the nursery and helped Mark Olson, Amy Madison and Marlene Howery plant a bur oak tree at the State Farm Insurance office. The tree now has a yellow ribbon tied to it as a thank you to veterans and vigil for those serving far away.

Dwaine Iverson donated his tree to the kids attending Sunday School at St. Williams Catholic Church for their annual end-of-the-year tree planting event, and Leavitt Insurance Group donated theirs to Champions Park, as did Steve Nichols, Janine Horgus and Bonderud.

Leorra Nickol and Wilma Steiner started planning for trees next year at Veterans Memorial Park, Aikins said, with some relief tree-planting season is only a month-long project every year.

Aikins and family made the next run to Great Falls for trees. He told his wife, Loralee, that he and his four vocal/hungry kids were making memories saving the planet here, Lovie with thanks for her patience as hes also juggling coaching baseball this spring.

The trailer full of trees required a planting party, across from the fire hall. Aikins counted more than 30 adults and children with shovels and smiles.

He praised Darcy Mcallister for digging the hole for her oak so fast. In fewer than four minutes, her husband Shannon was calling out, This ones ready for a tree.

They were joined by Mike and Sara White and Annika and her dad Buck Kidder. Peder, Gage and Madisson Underdal of All Seasons Heating planted an oak and then swept the sidewalks. Ryan, Kayler and Alley Austin of MRE, Jason Gray along with Ryan and Rylee Offe of Shelby Gas plant their oak tree next to each other and noted no power lines were overhead.

Meanwhile, Shane Clark of Marias Medical Center shoveled with Alan Bridge and his grandchildren Hazel and Leo. Brian, Colleen and Catherine Lee of Lee Law planted an oak tree together and let Aikins dirty up their new trailer. Lorette Carter picked up garbage and kept everyone laughing.

A big new Canada red chokecherry tree is bound for the track field in memory of Helen Schnee, thanks to Greg and Debbie Schnee. Elaine and Kevin Mitchell of Shelby Paint and Hardware and Greg and Peggy Taylor of Ben Taylor Inc. contributed cottonwood trees for the field, too. The Shelby Home and School Organization added a bur oak, Aikins favorite tree.

They have a tap root that goes straight down, so theyre grounded. They live 200 years with little maintenance, he said. Its a mighty tree.

Aikins draws inspiration from the David Icke quote that today’s mighty oak tree was yesterday’snutthat held its ground.

At the center of Champions Park is this recreation of the Dempsey-Gibbons World Heavyweight Championship Fight held July 4,1923, in Shelby. It’s now surrounded by trees.(Photo: TRIBUNE PHOTO/KRISTEN INBODY)

Forde Nursery in Great Falls won the citys latest tree bid, and Bonderud said the Champions Park has four varieties of trees.

We seek a diversity in our tree population, he said. Shelby was cottonwoods and evergreens and not many other varieties 20 years ago when we started emphasizing trees.

The tree project has caught the publics attention, highlighting the care of trees and the role they play in the community, Bonderud said.

He treasures a weeping willow in his front yard, rare for the area and with a trunk two-feet across.

Shelby students will be able to start cultivating their own future favorite tree. They each get a free tree seedling to take home from the Arbor Day commemoration.

BWW Review: COSMIC TRIGGER THE PLAY, Cockpit Theatre – Broadway World

So what, then, is Cosmic Trigger The Play? At times, yeah, a play, but at other times a cabaret, a documentary, a history lesson, a biography, a tribute, a literary adventure, a tragedy and a comedy. Is it, dare I use the word, perhaps most aptly labelled “A Happening”?

No matter how you describe it, it is four hours of great fun that constantly threatens to go off the rails, but just about stays on track, as the drugs, the paranoia and the joie-de-vivre pile on top of each other in a great tower of 70s hokum – with the glinting edge of relevance to 2017 cutting through any cynical dismissal of its key themes.

We’re in the swinging Sixties at the offices of Playboy where Robert Anton Wilson sifts through the bonkers conspiracy letters that arrive by the sackload. Realising that they are on to something, he and fellow scribbler Robert Shea decide to weave all the crazy stuff into a book they call Illuminatus, a project that takes over their lives and soon garners a global cult following (Dan Brown must have been looking on and thinking, “Hmm…”). Wilson jumps headfirst into the emerging counterculture, hobnobbing with Timothy Leary, William S Burroughs and the Charles Mansonesque figure (without the murders) Kerry Thornley – pass the hookah please.

Daisy Campbell’s twisting, tantalising, treat of a script isn’t satisfied with just telling that story – she also tells the story of her father’s (cult director Ken Campbell) 1976 staging of Illuminatus in Liverpool and later at the National Theatre in its Mary Whitehouse baiting days. Cue plenty of excellent jokes about the excesses of radical experimental theatre and dollops of goat blood!

And, topping off these narratives layered upon narratives, there’s Cosmic Trigger itself, the book about the book and the source for the play based on the book about the book – well, you know, sort of.

Got all that? Well, it doesn’t really matter if you haven’t, because, over its four hours running time, you will, as the metas stack up . Amazingly, it’s never difficult to follow, a testimony to the clarity of vision in the writing, the skills of actors playing multiple roles (sometimes naked – you have been warned) and a staging that maintains an audience-friendly pace through the New Age mumbo-jumbo and the incipient psychosis that, unlike in the case of Phillip K Dick (with whom he shared many traits), Wilson just about keeps at bay. In his case, the trips are a lot of fun and only a little scary!

It’s funny and clever and delightful too. Our heroes may not have much respect for straight society, but they are decent people who love each other and the world around them (though, of course, not everyone came out the other side unscathed). Oliver Senton plays Wilson as a guide and sardonic commentator on the craziness of the consumer-driven capitalism driving the USA (and, soon, the world) to a state where one can never have enough. Kate Alderton’s Arlen Wilson is a bra-burning feminist poet, but (if that’s the right word) full of love for her husband and her children, who are as sweet as can be.

If Mr and Mrs Wilson (how plain those names sound for such unplain individuals) hold the centre of the plot together, there are plenty of splendid performances swirling around them. Jethro Skinner is full of bonhomie and voracious sexuality as Timothy Leary, not even cowed by prison, inspiring a bravura song and dance number every bit as good as Dr Evil’s “It’s A Hard Knock Life”. Leigh Kelly’s Goat Man is (how can I put this?) eye-catching and Josh Darcy’s Ken Campbell is an uncanny impersonation of the old rogue, all unpredictable charisma and commitment.

Though 8 is a little steep for the programme, it does include a superb essay by John Higgs (who wrote the definitive story of pop anarchists, The KLF, who trace their roots back to Ken Campbell’s seminal show) which brings us right up to date with the hijacking of the fun element of conspiracy theories by the alt-right in the post-truth world of 2017 – though, rightly, he claims that we have always lived in a “post-truth” world, it’s just that its creators are more brazen and more powerful than ever. When the images of boobs and balls and a squid singing Radiohead’s “Creep” (every bit as brilliant as it sounds) fade from the mind, Wilson’s ideas (like Phillip K Dick’s smuggled into the mainstream) seem closer and closer to reality every day.

There probably isn’t a cult directing our world from Sirius (at his outer limits, Wilson can go a bit David Icke, never without a twinkle in his eye though), but, in an interconnected world of instant communication, the question of who is working with whom and to what end, is no less relevant to the Left and the non-political, for all of its appropriation by the Right, led by their champion, tweeting outlandish allegations at 3.00am from The White House. How the world can escape from the Chapel perilous into which it is being led and away from a state of paranoia into agnosticism, is the key question for our times.

Cosmic Trigger The Play is a Love & Will production at the Cockpit Theatre until 27 May.

The historic sex abuse investigation needs a dose of common sense – Spectator.co.uk (blog)

Amid the tidal wave of allegations of historic sexual abuse by so-called VIP paedophiles, yet another high-profile police investigation has stalled. Wiltshire Police, who are looking into claims made against the late Sir Edward Heath, revealed two weeks ago that they had released the only other two people arrested, saying theyface no further action. Despite this, officers told Radio 4s Today programme that Operation Conifer remains an ongoing investigation and that there are a significant number of allegations made by a separate number of individuals. But its unclear where else the investigation can go.

Following the abandonment of another probe that of Operation Midland by the Metropolitan Police, the former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor isreportedto be suing the anonymouswitnessknown only as Nick, who has accused him and others of decades-old sex crimes. Following an independent review by a retired high court judge, Sir Richard Henriques, Nick has been described as a fantasist. Northumbria Police are also considering whether to charge him for attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Mr Proctor is now suing the Metropolitan Police for damages; so too are former army chief Lord Bramall and the celebrity DJ Paul Gambaccini, who have also been falsely accused of abuse and face no further action. The claims could collectively cost the Met an estimated 3 million but the damage and financial cost to these mens reputations is incalculable. The question is, just how many others are facing historic accusations which are false?

Police across the UK have been so overwhelmed by the onslaught of child abuse allegations including current, non-recent, online and peer-to-peer abuse that many forces have reached saturation point, according to Britains most senior child protection police officer. Simon Bailey, Chief Constable of the Norfolk Constabulary, is so concerned by the unprecedented volume that he has proposed the decriminalisation of offenders who do not pose a physical threat to children, such as those viewing low level online child pornography. Instead, they should be dealt with through counselling and rehabilitation, he saidin February.

Mr Baileys radical suggestion comes in the wake ofstatisticsthat are truly staggering. The number of child abuse reports has leapt by 80 per cent in just three years, with police receiving an average of 112 complaints a day. There are now more than 70,000 complaints a year, with forces preparing an estimated 40,000 reports of abuse from the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. That inquiry set up in the wake of revelations that Jimmy Savile was a predatory paedophile is projected to cost 100 million over the next five years.

Why are so many people coming forward now? Sociologists might call this a moral panic, an explosive amplification of genuine public concern victims are told they should know they will be believed. This has been coupled with a burgeoning and increasingly powerful survivor movement, a growth in the number of psychotherapists helping the vulnerable recover repressed memories, and compensation specialists at theAssociation of Child Abuse Lawyersactively soliciting allegations all fuelled by social media and the anonymous ether of Twitterland.

So how to deal with the sheer volume of accusations, especially when some go back decades? One filter the police could use is plausibility; instead of simply believing victims outright, officers need to consider that some claims might be false, elicited in dubious recovered memory psychotherapy, or motivated by the prospect of compensation. One area in which this should apply is in claims of so-called Satanic ritual abuse, where accusers claim there is an international network of devil-worshipping paedophiles who breed babies for sacrifice, murder, rape, drink blood and even eat body parts in occult ceremonies. It sounds ridiculous and it is a government-funded inquiry as far back as 1994 concluded that ritual abuse was amyth. But, incredibly, some recent allegations made to police involvesuch claims.

Operation Hydrant set up to oversee investigations of non-recent child sex abuse within institutions or by people of public prominence has looked at some of the most controversial cases. These include the high-profile Operation Midland which was abandoned aftercosting a staggering 2.5 million and the farcical Operation Conifer, which cost more than1 million.

Last November, the Mail on Sundayreportedthat four of Sir Edwards accusers, all women, had shared lurid stories of sexual abuse, child sacrifice and murder in occult ceremonies. A confidential report by Dr Rachel Hoskins, an expert on religion-based ritual crime, who was called in to examine witness statements and other evidence gathered by police, concluded that the Satanic claims were preposterous and that the women knew each other well and had swapped tales. In February, the Daily Mailreportedthat the women had talked about possible compensation payouts and that one may even have already submitted a claim.

Despite this, the outlandish allegations against Sir Edward are now common currency in the blogosphere and on Twitter. They include those made by David Icke, the former sports presenter and Green Party spokesman, who alleges thatSavile was a Satanistwho procured children for the former prime minister and others at the Haut de la Garenne childrens home in Jersey, the subject of an earlierhigh-profile police investigation.

One common denominator in the VIP Satanic paedophile ring motif is a belief shared by some psychotherapists involved in counselling victims. As Dr Hoskins made clear, the main woman accuser who sparked Operation Conifer known as Lucy X recovered her abuse memories whilein therapy underhypnosisin the 1980s at the height of the recovered memory movement. She also noted that Nickhad been helped to rememberby separate psychotherapists using similar (recovered memory) techniques.

Clearly Nick and Lucy X have suffered severe issues and possibly need sensitive professional help. But when memories turn to Satanic ritual abuse, shouldnt police exercise some common sense and judgment, especially when investigating a dead former prime minister who cannot defend himself? And, amid the growing mass of historic allegations nationally, shouldnt police be more sceptical and ask: wheres the evidence?

The Donald’s propaganda machine has obviously overheated – The Nation

HHB Beria-Goebbels is again sicking up his formulaic bile with malice aforethought, continually absurd contradictions, post-truth obfuscation, and with lots of infantile little exclamation marks thrown in for good measure. Take this, for example: Its out in the open, the so-called Russian collusion is nothing more than a totally made-up toxic cocktail concocted by the crooks at cnn [sic]. Yep, course it is; if you say so. Bizarrely, the HHB wing of the Grimer Wormtongue Collective Voice contradicts this negativity by stating that CNNs highly respected journalist Van Jones actually speaks the truth by saying that it (Collusiongate) is a nothing burger!!!. So, CNN actually tells the real truth, but only when it suits The Collectives mix-and-match agenda, eh? Make one of your minds up, please. Then theres the fantastic Alex Jones is going up [sic] thanks to his factual reporting. Going up where? This would be the same Alex Jones who takes David Icke seriously, one presumes. All of this tosh would unquestionably sit far more comfortably within the pages of the National Enquirer. HHB Beria-Goebbels finishes off his diatribe by laughably predicting good riddance to come soon; let us all hope so, beginning with the removal of Trumps nepotistic placement system so beloved of dictators worldwide, and ending up with deserved impeachment.

10 Musical Conspiracy Theories That Demand Your Full Attention – Junkee

Paul McCartney is dead, Elvis is alive and Katy Perry is JonBenet Ramsey. To avoid being snapped bythe paparazzi who are stationed outside her New York apartment 24 hours a day, this year Taylor Swift began leaving home hidden in a box carried by her security team. At least, thats what one of 2017smost memorable conspiracytheories would have you believe. It mightseem like a very long bow to draw how could Swift, at 5 ft 10 inches, casually tuck herself inside a box? Does she get out ofthe box in thecar just outside her apartment, or doesshe travel inside it until she reachesher destination? Regardless of logistics, the internet quickly became convinced that this was how Swift had been hiding from the public for months, and the whole scenario becameeven more suspicious when suddenly almost all mention of The Box Theory vanished from the internet. Just a couple of months after it set the internet ablaze, a cursory Google search will turn up scant little. So had Swift deployed her army of lawyers to strip the internet of any evidence? Luckily, there are plenty of other batshit crazy musical conspiracies out there to keep you busy in Tay-In-A-Boxs absence, ranging from secretsong meanings to full blown murder cover-ups. Heres ten of the best. If youre not across your lizard history, heres a primer: in 1999, British broadcaster David Icke wrote a book called The Biggest Secret,detailing his belief that the worlds political leaders and celebrities areactually a race of reptilian aliens known as the Babylonian Brotherhood. Notable lizards apparently includeBarack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, and Pope Francis as well as Me And Bobby McGeesinger Kris Kristofferson. No, I have no idea either. Now, these folks arent actually lizards (dont be ridiculous). Rather, Kristofferson and the others are merely descendants of the blood-drinking reptilians who came to earth 200,000 years ago and bred with humans. Think you know who Andrew W.K is? Tryagain, sheeple. Andrew W.K doesnt actually exist, at least not as you know him. Apparently, W.K isa character who has been played by variousdifferent actors over the years. Behind this grand schemeis a guy called Steev Mike, who was an executive producer onW.Ks debut albumI Get Wet. Truthers are quick to point out that Mike may not actually be Mike either (because heaven knows this story needed another plot twist) and could insteadbe Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Musicians never die, they just fake their death to get away from the paparazziand live out the rest of their days in hiding. They also eat out at Burger King sometimes. Well, thats what people think happened toElvis, anyway. The King actually didnt die in 1977, he faked his death to throw the press off his trail. In the decades since hes been spotted multiple times: ata Burger King in Michigan, with Muhammad Ali in 1984, and even as an extra inHome Alone. Sure, appearing in a blockbuster movie when youre supposed to be dead seems a little risky but YOLO, right? No, Paul McCartney isnt touring Australia later this year he died in a car crash in 1967 and was replaced by a lookalike called William Campbell. Paul Is Dead Truthers have amassed a bewildering amount of evidence so support this theory, so to save time were just gonna present the key points: On the cover of Abbey Road,Paul is the only barefoot Beatle, and the only one striding with his left foot first twothings that represent himbeing out of step with his living bandmates. On the cover ofSgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,Paul is depicted with a hand above his head, which could indicate being blessed and given Last Rites. Hes also the only band memberfacing backwards on the other side of the album sleeve. If you play their song Revolution 9 backwards, you can hear the words turn me on, dead man. At the end of Lennons song Strawberry Fields Forever, a voice says I buried Paul. And sure, McCartney himself has asserted multiple times that he is, in fact, alive but he would say that, wouldnt he? You know what? It would be great if celebrities could stop dying and being replaced by lookalikes, thats all Im saying. This time, its Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne. According to this theory,Lavigne died in 2003 at the height of her fame, and was quickly replaced by a lookalikecalled Melissa. Theorists point to changes in her handwriting, her vocal tone, her nose, and the shape of her eyes as evidence that the Avril of 2003 is no longer with us. If you want to get really deep in this, dive into the thread below. 128,000 retweets cant be wrong. Truthers: if theyre not killing someone off, theyre resurrecting children whose cause of death has already been extensively documentedby the Boulder County Coroner. Apparently, the woman you know as Katy Perry is actually JonBenet Ramsey, the child beauty queen who was murdered in 1997. YouTuber Dave Johnson popularised the theory with a long-winded video in 2014, which went viral last year. Johnson is SERIOUSLY CONVINCED: JonBenet Ramsey became Katy Perry. Thats a fact, hesays at the beginning of the video. So if any of you continue to lie about this person dying, you are in fact a false witness to murder and death. Steady on, Dave. According to Johnson, the Ramsey parents staged their daughters death (by way of a Masonic play) so that she could become famous in later life. He doesnt really explainwhythis would help Ramsey become famous, but those are mere details that Dave doesnt need to bother with. His evidence is that Perry and Ramsey bear a slight resemblance. Thats it. He goes to the trouble of blending their photos together, which would be impressive except that it shows they look nothing alike. Musical icon Lou Reed died in 2013 after a long battle with liver disease. Except that actuallyhe wasmurdered by pop star Lady Gaga after Reed said he didnt like her albumARTPOP. The story goes that Reed was brought in to overseeARTPOPsmusical direction, which Gaga intended to be an homage of Velvet Underground. Reed was apparently so unimpressed with Gagas songs that he left the project, and she became so furious that she conspired to murder him with the help ofInterscope label head Jimmy Iovine and her then-manager Troy Carter. Of course. Reed was injected with the toxic substance polonium while he was recovering at the Cleveland clinic.Before you ask, theres absolutely no evidence to support this theory in any way. Not even a Ramsey/Perry level link. I think weve had enough of murder and death-faking, so heres a theory thats actually someway reasonable. Swedish pop star Robyn has an extensive discography, but arguably her two biggest tracks are Call Your Girlfriend and Dancing On My Own. Call Your Girlfriend is about someone on the verge of breaking up with their partner, while Dancing On My Own is from the perspective of a person thats just been broken up with. Two different songs, two different protagonists OR ARE THEY? If you thought that a woman could break into the hip-hop world with nothing but extraordinary talent and an excellent work ethic, try again! According to one particularly slimy corner of the internet, the Nicki Minaj you know is justthe face of Jay-Zs alter ego. In order to disguise his real voice, Hov simply speeds up the raps until they sound like a woman. Plenty of videosclaim to provide indisputable evidence to support the theory, mostly by slowing down Minajs raps until they sound (kinda, sorta, not really at all) like Jay-Z. Truthers also point to the fact that Minajs third album was calledThe Pinkprint,a reference toJay-Zs series of albums calledThe Blueprint. Itwouldnt be a conspiracy article without mentioning these guys. Where to even begin? The Illuminati a secret society set up during the Enlightenment era in the late 18th century is believed by some to still be operating today, with many of the worlds leaders and celebrities counted as members. They influence world events, rig award shows, keep the martians under wraps basically do everythingThe Simpsonsmentionin the Stonecutters song. Jay-Zand Beyonce are right at the heart of the Illuminati. That diamond cutter sign Jay is always throwing up? Thats connected to the Illuminatis Eye Of Providence. Blue Ivys name? That stands for Born Living Under Evil Illuminatis Very Youngest. The real reason they had twins? They neededthree children to complete the three points of the Illuminati pyramid. Jaysclothing line is full of occult symbols and signs of Freemasonry, and hisvideo for On To The Next One is also full of Illuminati imagery. Oh yeah, and he can apparently time travel and control peoples minds. Its not only Jay and Bey who are in on this musicians like Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga (when shes not busy murdering people), Adele, Rihanna, Kesha, Lana Del Rey and Nicki Minaj have all been implicated in this conspiracy in someway or other. Together, theyre seeking no less than world domination. Jules LeFevre is Staff Writer at Music Junkee and inthemix. She is on Twitter.

David Icke on world domination: Who are the Illuminati and they rule the Earth – www.MICEtimes.asia (press release)

I reveal how a global secret society called the Illuminati ( the Sanctified as they call themselves) holds since ancient times in their own hands the reins of the world , their power was initially established in the middle East , then Europe, and then , by English and other European empires , has spread to America, Africa, Australia, Latest Zealand, Asia, and other places, according to David Icke. When these empires left their collonie, there ostavili Illuminati network of secret societies and Illuminati dynasties , who continued to manage and conduct the events . There are two types of prisons or dictatorships. Some of them unadulterated dictatorship (communism, fascism, etc) , other and more effective is the hidden dictatorship masquerading as freedom. People dont rise up against slavery, ESDI think that they are free!!! The Illuminati are implementing a painstakingly planned and coordinated a plan to create a world government, Central Bank, army, and stuffed with microchips of the population,joined to the same computer. At least some who at least a little savvy, can see that the process of implementation in reality all of the above for today goes like never before. With the goal of globalization of government made such massive enterprises as the European Alliance (born on the basis of EEC free trade area), South American Alliance (which evolved out of the NAFTA American free trade area), and the Pacific Alliance (developed from AREK Asian free trade area). NATO (together with UN peacekeeping forces) is scheduled to become a world army, world police force, to deal with those countries who do not want to cede their sovereignty to the Illuminati world government, which , in agreement with their plans, must be formed on the basis of the United Nations. Structure of world control is a pyramid inside of a pyramid.Like the Russian dolls : one doll inside another. Whichever company You are shpanola , You will see that it is built on the principle of a pyramid. Standing on the lower rungs of the pyramid often have no idea what the whole organization. They do their job and vorachivayutsya home every day, znayaya how what they do connects with the work of others, and vyrastai into something naslovima. Only a few at the top know. So Makar, a few people can manage a thousand in the organization to realizovati plan, the existence of which those thousands do not even know. It is a global scheme, in accordance with which are controlled by a billion people. Personal organization, be it banks, multinational company, Empire media, NATO, etc., pouring into a huge pyramid. So Makar, Youll find, for example, that at the apex of the global banking pyramid, where all the banks , ultimately, are controlled by, are the same people the Illuminati. The same in relation to ethnic corporations, media information, etc.. There is a global pyramid that includes the pyramids of banking, business, tools, information, military, politics, and other institutions that control the planet. On the top of the pyramid is the elite of the Illuminati, which carried out its policy of globalization are not associated through honey, in 1-St look. This particular explains the growing centralization of world power in all areas of our lives. Everything is OGNIEM AND the SAME people in accordance with the SAME program. You will find many articles on this web site that will provide You detailed information about this Plan , almost everything you find in my books that You can satisficers this website. Illuminati manipulated the population through emotion and reason. Ordinary people even more than the Illuminati, which, accordingly, cannot manage all at the physical level. Because they operate by manipulating the emotions and minds of the masses so that we live our lives and litsezreem the world as they wish . For example, more powerful means of manipulation one that I call problem reaction solution . He works in the subsequent way: You want to achieve something that, as You know, not like population . It can be anything : the growing power of the militia (police ), the limitation of main freedoms, even a war. See also: Scientists have linked the emergence of life on Earth with planets-giants You understand that if You offer this policy openly , people will react against it . So You first create a Problem : povyshenie levels of crime, greater amount of violence, terrorist acts, government crises, or You make one of your Illuminatis puppets like Saddam Hussein to get involved in the war. You will make sure that somebody else is accused of this dilemma and not You, and those who is the real premise of this difficulty . You are creating a Patsy Patsy, as they call them in America: Timothy McVeigh or Lee Harvey Oswald. Then You use your money info to tell people what they should think about you concocted the event and they need someone to blame. It privodit us to stage 2-Oh, the REACTION from people This cant continue, what are THEY going to do? That allows them to then openly offer the SOLUTION to the difficulty that they made a new law that promoted their plan for the centralization of global power or the limitations of the main freedoms. This technique is used posovremennee, for example : programmed a bunch of teenagers and adults who descend from mind with a gun in the hands of worldwide, which immediately leads to a tightening of control over the weapon. I say this as a person does not have guns and believes passionately in nonviolence. But if were going to be realistic, we must overcome the limits of our own vision and to give to itself the report in that Illuminati seek to disarm those who would use a weapon against them. See also: The global gas revolution. The decision of the Stockholm much worse than you think Specifically, before Adolf Hitler began to fill concentration camps, he introduced the same anti-gun law , which we see now in the world. The time in which we live is critical .So not enough cards should be played Illuminati in the next 12 months. We stand at the crossroads of human history. We can choose freedom or fall under the control of a global fascist countries, global version of Nazi Germany. Illuminati, the cabal controlling the world, consists of genetic hybrids resulting from the mating of reptiles alien race with people that occurred thousands of years back. The control center is not even in this dimension he is on the lower level of the 4th dimension, the lower astral as many people call it, is the usual home of demons , according to the folklore and legends. These reptiles stellar work using hybrids belonging to certain dynasties( bloodlines) because they are vibrating together comparability. This is why European Royal and aristocratic families so manic relatives together , as well as the Eastern family of the United States to create favorites of America. All presidential elections since George Washington in 1789 , has been won by more pure candidates , and the sample is a European Royal Blood. Of the 42 presidents prior to bill Clinton, 33 have been genetically related with 2 people Alfred the Majestic, the Lord of Britain, and Charlemagne, a monarch who ruled in the area of modern France. And the same goes for all the major positions of power, everywhere one and the same tribe! Together with the twinning only with their: to preserve genetic inheritance, Illumnati also obsessed with symbolism and rituals. Curious what ordinary science has received confirmation reptilicas parts of the human brain (R-complex,as it is called) the source of subsequent behavioral traits of: obsession with ritual, cold blooded behavior, territorialism this belongs to me and the obsession with hierarchical structures. It perfectly depicts the mindset of the Illuminati . And if You have more of that R complex, or it is activated mainly meshes need these traits will be expressed mainly. But their ritual is not only for ceremonial purposes either free of the nightmare. Rituals created to extra fields of the energy grid of the planet and the impact of such makarom on human consciousness. The rituals of these dynasties have not changed for thousands of years ( See. The biggest Secret for more info). They have detailed kathgodam calendar of events on the occasion which they carried out human sacrifices in coordination with key lunar, solar, and planetary cycles, all of this is to use this energy for their delusional plan to seize full control over the Planet Earth in the very near future. 2017, micetimes.asia.

Where David Icke Stands in Trump’s America – Splice Today

Trump, Jones, and Icke are bloviators and bullshit-mongers in their own way. As a new right-wing made itself known by ham-fisted, 4chan-influenced trolling, the faux-respectable rantings of white nationalist Richard Spencer, the fever dream election of Donald Trump, his press secretary Sean Spicer on the Holocaust, and how at least Adolf Hitler didnt use chemical weapons, the question of who possess a hatred of Jewish people took on new-old importance. For many years, and not entirely baselessly, British conspiracy theorist and author David Icke has been accused of being anti-Semitic. Not because, like Spencer, he puts on blatantly white nationalist conferences and gets punched into meme stardom. No, Icke, 64, is best known as the person who popularized the notionbelieved by four percent of respondents to a 2013 Public Policy Polling surveythat reptilian space aliens control much of our world. Reptilians are thought to be the true identities of prominent people including the British royal family, the Clintons, the Bushes, anyone named Rothschild, and, for some reason, country singer and actor Kris Kristofferson. The Anti-Defamation League, however, has long thought that reptilians is a codeword for another sort of bloodline historically accused of impossible, devilish plots. And their suspicions are not without foundation. Author and documentarian Jon Ronson has a long history with Icke, who appeared in Ronsons book 2001 book Them: Adventures with Extremists and its companion documentary The Secret Rulers of the World. Ronsons who I think of when I think of people who know kooks, so I invited the British transplant to New York City to sit outside Brooklyns Grand Prospect Hall while Icke goes on, and on, and on, to discuss the obvious questions which arise from this carnival of kook. One of these is whether Icke or his followers possess any particular vitriol against Jews or not. Hes never been hostile to Ronson when he shadowed him, or in the years afterwards when theyve encountered each other, even though Ronson is himself Jewish, and wasnt entirely gentle in his portrayal of Icke or his fans. On the other hand, over pretzels and sodas, Ronson, 49, asks if I saw the anti-Semitic cartoon that was recently tweeted out on the Icke Twitter account. I didnt. Ronson says it was fairly appalling, but he cant find it, and I dont either when I scroll through the tweets. In his previous books, of which he has many (and they appear dense and tedious, to me, at least) Icke has suggested that he believes that the barnacle-like 1903 hoax work The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is real. Hes been accused of doubting the Holocaust (though, to be fair, he doubts everything else, including the moon and reality itself). Icke looks different now than he did in Ronsons documentary. Stouter, his hair still in a hint of a gentlemans mullet, but now pure white, the former soccer player and broadcaster has made his living peddling explanations for the whole universe for more than two decades. He seem either cheerful, or just more polished than he once did, even as he spends 12 hours mostly discussing how the world is in a terrible, wicked state. (The $60-$100 ticket price in the oddly posh Grand Prospect Hall probably keeps Icke in an upbeat mood.) Ickes views are best summed up by picturing someone sweeping the entire New Age/Occult and Conspiracy sections of your local Barnes and Noble onto the floor. There are not just aliens, but brainwashing, chemtrails, evil tones, and controlling frequencies, robotic copies of humanity. Something about the moon either not being real, or bad, or hollow. Transhumanism is going to kill us all. DARPA, Google, and robots are wicked. Pedophile rings are everywhere. Trans people are… fine (there comes Ickes stilted hippie tolerance), yet somehow encouraging children to pick their own gender identity is an evil plot intended to sow confusion. Politicians are corrupt and controlling (he had to get one right). Icke endlessly references other New Age and conspiracy theorists, picks quotes from scientists and science articles out of context, and then backs it up with the words of Martin Luther King Jr. and characters in The Matrix and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. All of it is woven together into a ransom note of artful nonsense. The production has a hypnotic, albeit draining, quality in the moment, but afterwards, your notes are confusing and your head swims. What was that about Saturn and the Rockefellers? Life is a tiny experience in a band of frequencies. Thats good, right? The audience appears bizarrely diverse in age, sex, and race. There are also a lot of men between the ages of 20 and 30 who are wearing crystals around their necks. Two brunette males, one with long hair, pass by me during one of Ickes very necessary breaks in speaking. One says to the other with perfect earnestness something about your vibrations… Ickes ex-wife is here. So are both his sons. Her nametag has a subtle Linda I, but I eventually figure it out. She asks around to see if David can speak to me, but predicts that hell be tired by the end of his spiel. Four or five hours after I ask, I figure Im at least as tired. At one point, a middle-aged bespectacled man who sounds to my ears exactly like Irish comedian Dylan Moran asks Linda if Icke is ever going to wrap this up. He has to leave, he says, speaking to us in a confidential tone. Can Linda tell him how it ends? She tries to dodge. Hes got to see how it all comes together. Every hour is necessary. Finally, she yields. Love is the answer. Well, of course it is, says the Irish fellow dryly, and he shifts off before Linda or I can get a name or occupation. The table that Linda mans has a t-shirt which pictures Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and has the words This choice is no choice. Her and Ickes towering son Jaymie is spotted wearing the shirt later. Icke can easily be filed with conspiracy king Alex Jones in the fringe section of lifeand indeed, they both pop up in Ronsons book and documentary seriesbut while Jones is full-on for Trump, and by virtue of that, has nearly become mainstream, Icke remains a space hippie. He continues to fill the void that Jones pre-Trump was supposed tothat is, trust no one on earth. Trump, Jones, and Icke are bloviators and bullshit-mongers in their own way, but while Trumps like a drunk man at a bar whos backed you into a corner, and Jones always looks and sounds seconds away from a brain aneurysm, Icke comes off as a moderately funny, personable fellow at a cocktail party telling you what he does for a living. Still, if theres anything more self-aggrandizing than believing you can fix every problem in America by passing the correct law, it might be charging 100 bucks for a 12-hour explainer on the universe and human existence. Outside, I ask Ronson the most obvious question of all, what the hell is Ickes deal? Prejudiced, crazy, conman, or some mixture? Ronson says he doesnt think Icke is either. Mental illness is categorized by how much distress it causes the person And I dont see David Icke as particularly distressed. Hes grossing $100,000 next door for one tour. Doesnt that make him a charlatan then, I ask. Ronson hesitates. Most of his work, from Them, to The Psychopath Test, to his recent dissection of the Internet at its worst, So Youve Been Publicly Shamed, can be characterized as humanizing and sympathetic to nearly every person discussed, no matter how foolish or flawed, or occasionally criminal. Some people dont like that about Ronsons work. After all, Icke is making a lot of money with a lot of nonsense, and maybe thats not such a great thing? Maybe not, but Ronson has been deeper into the conspiracy world than Ill ever be, and he still has a gooey spot for people like Icke. Ronson is right. Icke also doesnt seem upset that he used to hear voices, thinks he was the son of God, and currently believes that the world is controlled by beams from Saturn. I think everything David Icke says, he believes, Ronson says. Perhaps, Ronson suggests, Icke is just immersed in his topic, the way Ronson has been in psychopathy, public shaming, conspiracy theories, and any other book subject. Icke, well, maybe the thing hes found is justmore nutty. Ronson, who authored a Kindle single on Jones, Trump, and the alt-right called The Elephant in the Room, says its clear that while Jones popularity fluctuates, and is now increasing because hes hopped on the Trump train, Icke has kept a more constant, solid level of support since he first suggested that he might be Jesus, and really kicked it into high gear when he learned about the Reptilian space aliens. Next door is not the Nuremberg rally, says Ronson. Its a thousand spiritually anti-New World Orderits the same as it ever was. The only difference is that Trump is a fan of this [fringe] stuff, so hes brought them into his campaign. But thats different than saying theres a huge groundswell of these people, theres like loads more than there used to be. I think thats a really important distinction. Icke has been more or less en vogue over the years, says Ronson. Two or three Hillary for Prison t-shirts float about the crowd. But on the whole, Ronson is correct that this doesnt resemble the regular right, the alt-right, or even the more 1990s-paranoid militia types. Jones, for all of his flights of fancy about conspiracies he cannot prove, doesnt go in for what Ronson dubs Ickes spiritualityenergy, and vibrations, and you know, we actually have more than five senses, we havenine senses, I dont know how many senses. Furthermore, Icke sums up the recent election with a disgusted, dismissive which psychopath do you want in officethis one, or this one? The audience is here for the long haul, but they do seem more entranced by talk of the reptilians than by the bit about Saturns evil rays for which I spaced out. Ronson agrees that the 12-foot lizards are a bit of a millstone around Davids neck, rather how Trumps most ardent fans waited with great excitement for him to mention the wall, and who is going to build it, sometimes with eyes glazed over in the interim. Ronsons Secret Rulers of the World segment on Icke spends a lot of time covering the goofy Canadian activists who think Icke is a prejudiced menace to their nation, and must be barred from speaking. The result is less-than-flattering towards them. However, Ronson remains agnostic on the prejudice question until he ends the documentary by relating how he overhears a member of Ickes circle referring to one protester as the fat Jew. Now, he says that Ickes website once linked to The International Jew, a book thats about as bad as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of paranoid, fanciful hatred of that particular group. Ronson tells me, Icke definitely attracts anti-Semites. I saw that with my own eyes I see it as well. Critiquing Israel as a country, or even feeling nervous about the concept of nationalistic Zionism does not make one anti-Semitic. And Icke probably does mean actual aliens, at least to a point. However, if youre feeling particularly uncharitable, you might wonder if in his lecture, Icke calls religion the greatest form of mind control ever invented in order to dissuade people from thinking hes got any particular vendetta against Jews. The Icke fan I interview first is Ryan Disomma, and he doesnt help allay these suspicions. The 27-year-old owner of a conspiracy/vegan/uncensored truth site called Revolution of the Mind where they expose a lot of corruption with no actual agenda to it, Disomma is uncertain about the reptilians, though humans clearly have a mysterious origin. Hes underwhelmed by Trump. Unless you have Rothschild and Rockefeller blood or impossible sums of money, the political process is all for show. When asked if Icke is prejudiced against Jews, Disomma dismisses it. Its just hes generalizing a certain aspect of people. His level of understandinghe knows exactly who hes talking about, whereas some of the general population takes it more literal and not so general, like hes talking about. Hes exposing kind of what Hitler was exposing and going after, and stuff, its just some peoples understanding is not there yet. Uh, Hitler? Hitler was going after a bloodline that he knew was going to take over the world. After some journalistic stammering, I squeeze confirmation out of Disomma that neither he nor Icke actively like Hitler. I dont agree with [Hitlers] methods, but that was his understanding, and his way of going about it, says Disomma. Icke clearly doesnt dig Hitler, since he just puts on conferences. So thats… good. The next several Icke fans dont mention Hitler, which now feels like a disturbingly positive sign. Several think its important to be clear that disliking Zionists isnt the same thing as disliking Jews. Most of them profess to be skeptical about at least parts of the whole Icke experience. However, theyve stayed all day. And they think Icke is terrific. Hes waking people up, hes saying what you arent supposed to say. Hes opening minds. Theyre 9/11 truthers. None of them have anything good to say about Trump. Michelle F. is from Long Island. She sits down beside me on a bench outside the bathroom, and speaks before she notices the notebook which says its not safe to speak to me freely. Shes the only Icke fan not comfortable with sharing her full name, but is still willing to talk. Its a family affair, coming to Icke, and its not the first time. I believe everything he says, she says casually, and then later says, I am not saying he has 100 percent of the truth, but hes lifted the veil on a few things. Shes 68, black, and worked 40 years in the mental health field. She says Icke is rational. Not crazy. The Lizard People are either real space lizards, or they might just be people with an evil lizard energy. [Icke is] not saying all Jews are Reptilians, hes saying that the overlords, the people who created the state of Israel have an ulterior motive… Theyre the same people who left millions of their compatriots to die in World War II. So are they anti-Semitic? I would say so. One exhausted man in a ball hat illustrated with a firearm and the words come and take it drove all night from Philly to see Icke, which is why he doesnt trust himself to be coherent in an official interview. He and two other guys, one tall and mustached enthusiastically debate the use of force. Come and take it thinks that Ickes peace and love is the answer bit will only go so far when they are trying to control us. Without any hate in his heart, he says, the next person who tries to take his rights, hell put in the ground. A cheerful, bearded sixtysomething is here with his wife and friends. Hes tired, but doesnt mind checking out Icke and considering it all. A 37-year-old Canadian named Jonathan Davis gives me a hug. He says he was a trained scientist, but he knows that not everything can be explained by science. He came to New York City to work for peace for a non-specified NGO, but he was helping to welcome people to the Icke event. The seminar finally ends with Ickes positive vibes. The last hour could be a chipper corporate-Yogi retreat; the power of love and such, just as Linda Icke promised. Now its nearly 11 at night, and 15 or 20 loyal fans linger in front of the Grand Prospect Hall to see if Icke will come out. Jaymie appears and steers his dad firmly through the crowd, and towards a waiting cab. David takes a moment to hug a few people, and express his appreciation for their appreciation. He waves goodbye. Its sweet. They adore him, and he seems so genuine, just as Ronson said. And then my Uber arrives, and I have to go, just as a slender black woman and a brunette white guy giggle, and discuss the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as if its a factual book. The woman says she first read it 20 years ago. The man is passionate. Yes! That book! They have different rules for themselves, the Jews do. Different rules for themselves than for the rest of us.

Murder in T.B. Joshua’s church? (PART 2) | News Ghana – News Ghana

I have many friends in the intelligence agencies both within Nigeria and outside. I was at Harrow School, Kelly College and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom with many that ended up in M15 and M16 and their sister agencies all over the world and we are friends till today. Most of them are decent, law-abiding patriots whose purpose is simply to ensure that their country is safe and that its citizens are well-protected. One of them, who is a good friend of mine till today and who actually heads a formidable and wel-known intelligence agency, recently told me that he sees his country as a plane that is in mid-flight which is being flown and piloted by the politicians and whoever may be the President, Head of State or Prime Minister at any given point in time. He said the role of the intelligence services is to ensure that the engine of that plane runs well and that it does not overheat or knock whilst the flight is in motion and whilst the plane is in mid-air. This is a profound description and eloquent testimony of what the intelligence agencies are meant to do. And all over the world most of them do it very well. These are mostly courageous and patriotic men and women who live in the grey areas of our mutual existence, who operate in the murky world of secrecy and subtefuge, who do jobs and carry out operations that few of us can do, who are hardly celebrated and who are mostly unsung yet who do such a great job at keeping us safe and who carry out such a vital and critical role. Without them we would be lost. There is, however, also a darker side. I say this because, generally speaking, these are people that are obsessed with secrecy and haunted by some of the atrocities that they and their friends and associates may have commited in the past. A few of them are cold-blooded and have multiple personalities. Worse still they are almost sociopathic in nature. They have no feeling, empathy or sympathy for their targets, their victims, the subjects of their enquiries or the objects of their interest. Most relevant of all is the fact that they do not always operate within the confines and parameters of the law. Sometimes they do the most hideous and barbaric things which is why their oath and culture of secrecy unto death is so vital. They can be very nice and pleasant on the surface but below that they are utterly ruthless and exceptionally dangerous. Their Nigerian counterparts are no different and I have worked closely with many of them over the years. As it is with all intelligence agents and spies, deception and deceit is their language and their loyalty is, more often than not, to the state than to their friends and family members. That is their training and I guess no-one can blame them for that. Finally they operate like a cult and they literally have their own strange code of conduct and coded language which is exclusive to them. Yet despite this chilling and grim analysis quite a few of them are humane and decent people who have a deep sense of what is right and wrong and who, more often than not, wish to make amends for some of the horrific things they have done or witnessed in the past. It was from a few of those that share this kind, generous and charitable disposition that I was given the true picture of things and the relevant information about what really happened to Prophet T.B. Joshuas church and how and why it was brought down. I will not mention their names but I will tell their story. And that story is as follows. They told me why the operation was carried out, how those involved covered it up and how they attempted to hit TB Joshua the second time but failed. They told me that it was the same group of operatives that were behind the fatal crash of General Patrick Azazis (the former National Security Advisor) helicopter and how Governor Patrick Yakowa (the Governor of Kaduna state) was purposely lured on that helicopter in order for them to literally kill two birds with one stone. They told me how the operation was conducted by rogue elements in the intelligence agencies without the knowledge of Mr. Eta Ekpeyong, the head of the Department of State Security (DSS) at the time who was totally loyal to Jonathan but with the knowledge and support of a handful of disloyal and ruthless senior operatives from other arms of the intelligence agencies who provided the logistics, hardware, man-power and funding for the operation. They told me that there was a foreign component to the whole affair which I will touch on in part 3 of this essay. They told me that there was a religious dimension to the whole affair and about how a group of fifth columists within the security agencies in Jonathans government had sworn that they would destabilise his government and either kill him or stop him from coming back in 2015 and how they assisted the then opposition by providing them with sensitive and often false information to use against the government. Their view was that the country must not be ruled by a Southerner or a Christian and that Jonathan must be stopped at all costs. T.B. Joshuas crime was that he knew too much and that he was secrety exposing their plans to those that cared for Jonathan. He needed to be discredited, stopped, kept busy, rubbished or permanently silenced. In part 3 of this essay I will go much futher into this matter and expose far more about this issue but for now two things remains clear. That firstly the entire horrendous episode and the terrible tragedy that occured in T.B. Joshuas church must be revisited and properly investigated by the security agencies with a view to bringing the real perpetrators, and not their victims and targets, to justice. And that secondly the Nigerian people would do well to question ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that their government (and I mean ALL governments and not just the Buhari administration) tells them about such events or that they read, watch or listen to in what President Donald Trump so eloquently describes as the mainstream media (MSM). At this point readers may ask, do intelligence agencies and governments actually kill people? Unfortunately the answer to that question is yes, they do. This is especially so when they believe it is in the national security interest to do so or when they want to discredit or weaken the government that they purport to serve. It is also pertinent to note that when they do these horrendous things they always look for someone else or some innocent group of people to use as scapegoats, to blame it on and to carry the can. Many innocent people have either gone to jail or have been executed as consequence of this. One should also note that oftentimes they use violent criminal networks and bloodthirsty gangsters to do their dirty work for them. In return they give such men of the underworld official protection and sometimes even funding. Consequently when we hear that people were eliminated by the local mafia, a group of armed robbers or any other criminal gang, they may well have done so at the behest of one of the intellingence agencies and they would have been well paid for it. As the great writer and analyst David Icke often says, nothing is ever as it seems or appears. This is the way things work in the dark cloak and dagger world of intelligence and espionage and this is the way things are done by what has come to be known and universally described as the system. In the parlance of that murky world they call such practices extreme measures, special ops or black ops and those that actually carry out such operations (i.e. the footsoldiers that actually pull the triggers or detonate the bombs) are referred to as wet boys because what they do is not only deadly but also wet and messy. It is a universal practice and it is something that is well-known to anyone that has ever been in the inner circles or corridors of power. It is also utterly evil and godless. We shall look into their modus operandi in more depth with special reference to what happened in TB Joshuas Church in the third and final part of this contribution. (TO BE CONTINUED).

ILLUMINATI MEETING? Angela Merkel makes ‘sign’ at G7 meeting as Donald Trump looks on – Express.co.uk

Mrs Merkel was pictured with Mr Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May today during G7 talks in Italy. She is known for making her infamous “diamond” hand sign, which has been branded of masonic-style and a symbol of the alleged Illuminati by conspiracy theorists. It is alleged by believers in the Illuminati that it is a secret organisation made up of world leaders and celebrities that actually runs all world governments from behind the scenes and intends introducing a New World Order which will see just one government running the entire world. At its most extreme, the Illuminati is allegedly a Satanic group that uses hand signals to identify members to each other. Mrs Merkel’s use of the sign often attracts attention and comes after a Nato meeting yesterday – which is of particular significance as conspiracy theorists believe the G7 talks and NATO are Illuminati run and part of the plan to introduce a world army. REUTERS EPA 1 of 16 German Chancellor campaigns in German Federal State Schleswig-Holstein Others photographed using the hand sign in the rhombus shape have included British Prime Minister Theresa May, and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker. The sign is often referred to as a Merkel Diamond, due to her frequent use of it. Mrs May was snapped imitating the ‘Merkel diamond’ while giving a speech outside the Palace of Westminster on July 11 last year. Conspiracy theory website illuminatiRex lists the diamond sign as number one out of a top-ten of illuminati signs, with Mrs Merkel given her own section for doing it in reverse, in what it describes as the Merkel Raute. And on the conspiracy theory forum run by David Icke, the significance of the Merkel Diamond, which has been used in political poster campaigns, has been discussed. A senior forum member with the user name Posidon posted: “I don’t know if anyone ever noticed the Angela Merkel famous hand sign? REUTERS “I don’t know if anyone ever noticed the Angela Merkel famous hand sign? David Icke forum member “I found today a new picture of it in my local newspaper, and I found curious that they use her hand sign in a political campaign. “Diamond they say? So I ask, is every one asleep these days? “Just the first time I saw the image, I noticed it is not a diamond at all, plus the way she placed her fingers (which is not even easy) unless you really want them to be that way does not resemble a diamond at all, but a Masonic symbol of the compass and square. “Is every one asleep? No one sees and talks about these things, is it not evident enough?” But, Mrs Merkel, who has led the Christian Democratic Union party for 16 years, explained the reason she makes the unusual gesture in a 2013 interview, and denied there was anything sinister behind it. AFP/Getty Images 1 of 10 In 2011, Osama Bin Laden was killed by US Navy Seals and buried at sea, but now conspiracy theorists claim that it was all a lie and he is still alive She told a German magazine: “There was always the question, what to do with your arms, and that’s how it came about. It contains a certain symmetry.” Other famous faces including Gordon Brown, the Duchess of Cornwall and Recep Tayyip Erdogan have also been spotted making the ‘Merkel diamond’. Mr Trump has not been known to make the diamond sign, but he has made other hand gestures which have been alleged to be Illuminati signs. Some conspiracy theorists claim Mr Trump is a fully signed up member of the Illuminati, but others believe he is an enemy of the Illuminati who has managed to infiltrate its top position – the US presidency.

‘Shelby National Forest’ thriving on Hi-Line – Great Falls Tribune – Great Falls Tribune

Kristen Inbody , kinbody@greatfallstribune.com Published 4:16 p.m. MT May 11, 2017 | Updated 10 hours ago Luis Correa, a city service worker, moves bound for Main Street from Champions Park, which commemorates the Jack Dempsey-Tommy Gibbons boxing match Shelby hosted in 1923. City workers planted 40 trees in the park this week.(Photo: TRIBUNE PHOTO/KRISTEN INBODY)Buy Photo SHELBY Seventeen years ago, the first time the city earned recognition in the Tree City USA program, a skeptic quipped, Shelbys tree is doing very well. And now? Were working on the Shelby National Forest, Mayor Larry Bonderud joked. Shelby, the Montana Tree City of the Year, hosts the states Arbor Day celebration on Friday, May 12, and Gov. Steve Bullock will help plant a tree as part of an 11 a.m. ceremony at the high school football field (or gym if the weather is bad). This week the city added 45 trees to Champions Park just off US Highway 2 behind Pizza Hut. The new park commemorates the 1923 Jack Dempsey-Tommy Gibbons boxing match with interpretive signs, a medal sculpture and cement work that gives visitors an idea of the size of the venue. A DNRC Urban Forestry grant helped with the tree planting. Justin Aikins of Simons Petroleum helped make tree planting a truly community event, Bonderud said. Aikins, 38, studied horticulture and landscape design in Bozeman and said the more he learned about the benefits of trees in cleaning the air, in carbon sequestration, in calming people the more he was interested in planting trees in Shelby. It just exploded into an Earth Day extravaganza, he said. Kolben Aikins poses with a newly planted tree in Shelby. The five-year-old helped launch an “Earth Day Extravaganza” of tree planting in Montana’s tree city of the year.(Photo: COURTESY PHOTO/JUSTIN AIKINS) His son Kolben, 5, was planting a birch tree he named Big for the third annual Earth Day tree planting at Simons Petroleum when bankers Locke Mellot, Sam Sharples and Byron Kluth drove by and were intrigued. They placed their orders for trees on the spot and thus began a mass planting that tied in many businesses, organizations and volunteers. Mellot already is making plans for lunches under the shade of the new tree at Bear Paw Credit Union, Aikins said. Sam Sharples of LPL Financial volunteered to pick up the first trailer load of trees from the nursery and helped Mark Olson, Amy Madison and Marlene Howery plant a bur oak tree at the State Farm Insurance office. The tree now has a yellow ribbon tied to it as a thank you to veterans and vigil for those serving far away. Dwaine Iverson donated his tree to the kids attending Sunday School at St. Williams Catholic Church for their annual end-of-the-year tree planting event, and Leavitt Insurance Group donated theirs to Champions Park, as did Steve Nichols, Janine Horgus and Bonderud. City service workers landscape Champions Park, which commemorates the Jack Dempsey-Tommy Gibbons boxing match Shelby hosted in 1923. City workers planted more than 40 trees this week.(Photo: TRIBUNE PHOTO/KRISTEN INBODY) Leorra Nickol and Wilma Steiner started planning for trees next year at Veterans Memorial Park, Aikins said, with some relief tree-planting season is only a month-long project every year. Aikins and family made the next run to Great Falls for trees. He told his wife, Loralee, that he and his four vocal/hungry kids were making memories saving the planet here, Lovie with thanks for her patience as hes also juggling coaching baseball this spring. The trailer full of trees required a planting party, across from the fire hall. Aikins counted more than 30 adults and children with shovels and smiles. He praised Darcy Mcallister for digging the hole for her oak so fast. In fewer than four minutes, her husband Shannon was calling out, This ones ready for a tree. They were joined by Mike and Sara White and Annika and her dad Buck Kidder. Peder, Gage and Madisson Underdal of All Seasons Heating planted an oak and then swept the sidewalks. Ryan, Kayler and Alley Austin of MRE, Jason Gray along with Ryan and Rylee Offe of Shelby Gas plant their oak tree next to each other and noted no power lines were overhead. Meanwhile, Shane Clark of Marias Medical Center shoveled with Alan Bridge and his grandchildren Hazel and Leo. Brian, Colleen and Catherine Lee of Lee Law planted an oak tree together and let Aikins dirty up their new trailer. Lorette Carter picked up garbage and kept everyone laughing. A big new Canada red chokecherry tree is bound for the track field in memory of Helen Schnee, thanks to Greg and Debbie Schnee. Elaine and Kevin Mitchell of Shelby Paint and Hardware and Greg and Peggy Taylor of Ben Taylor Inc. contributed cottonwood trees for the field, too. The Shelby Home and School Organization added a bur oak, Aikins favorite tree. They have a tap root that goes straight down, so theyre grounded. They live 200 years with little maintenance, he said. Its a mighty tree. Aikins draws inspiration from the David Icke quote that today’s mighty oak tree was yesterday’snutthat held its ground. At the center of Champions Park is this recreation of the Dempsey-Gibbons World Heavyweight Championship Fight held July 4,1923, in Shelby. It’s now surrounded by trees.(Photo: TRIBUNE PHOTO/KRISTEN INBODY) Forde Nursery in Great Falls won the citys latest tree bid, and Bonderud said the Champions Park has four varieties of trees. We seek a diversity in our tree population, he said. Shelby was cottonwoods and evergreens and not many other varieties 20 years ago when we started emphasizing trees. The tree project has caught the publics attention, highlighting the care of trees and the role they play in the community, Bonderud said. He treasures a weeping willow in his front yard, rare for the area and with a trunk two-feet across. Shelby students will be able to start cultivating their own future favorite tree. They each get a free tree seedling to take home from the Arbor Day commemoration. Trooper pledges to replace Noel Tree Read or Share this story: http://gftrib.com/2ppH17K

BWW Review: COSMIC TRIGGER THE PLAY, Cockpit Theatre – Broadway World

So what, then, is Cosmic Trigger The Play? At times, yeah, a play, but at other times a cabaret, a documentary, a history lesson, a biography, a tribute, a literary adventure, a tragedy and a comedy. Is it, dare I use the word, perhaps most aptly labelled “A Happening”? No matter how you describe it, it is four hours of great fun that constantly threatens to go off the rails, but just about stays on track, as the drugs, the paranoia and the joie-de-vivre pile on top of each other in a great tower of 70s hokum – with the glinting edge of relevance to 2017 cutting through any cynical dismissal of its key themes. We’re in the swinging Sixties at the offices of Playboy where Robert Anton Wilson sifts through the bonkers conspiracy letters that arrive by the sackload. Realising that they are on to something, he and fellow scribbler Robert Shea decide to weave all the crazy stuff into a book they call Illuminatus, a project that takes over their lives and soon garners a global cult following (Dan Brown must have been looking on and thinking, “Hmm…”). Wilson jumps headfirst into the emerging counterculture, hobnobbing with Timothy Leary, William S Burroughs and the Charles Mansonesque figure (without the murders) Kerry Thornley – pass the hookah please. Daisy Campbell’s twisting, tantalising, treat of a script isn’t satisfied with just telling that story – she also tells the story of her father’s (cult director Ken Campbell) 1976 staging of Illuminatus in Liverpool and later at the National Theatre in its Mary Whitehouse baiting days. Cue plenty of excellent jokes about the excesses of radical experimental theatre and dollops of goat blood! And, topping off these narratives layered upon narratives, there’s Cosmic Trigger itself, the book about the book and the source for the play based on the book about the book – well, you know, sort of. Got all that? Well, it doesn’t really matter if you haven’t, because, over its four hours running time, you will, as the metas stack up . Amazingly, it’s never difficult to follow, a testimony to the clarity of vision in the writing, the skills of actors playing multiple roles (sometimes naked – you have been warned) and a staging that maintains an audience-friendly pace through the New Age mumbo-jumbo and the incipient psychosis that, unlike in the case of Phillip K Dick (with whom he shared many traits), Wilson just about keeps at bay. In his case, the trips are a lot of fun and only a little scary! It’s funny and clever and delightful too. Our heroes may not have much respect for straight society, but they are decent people who love each other and the world around them (though, of course, not everyone came out the other side unscathed). Oliver Senton plays Wilson as a guide and sardonic commentator on the craziness of the consumer-driven capitalism driving the USA (and, soon, the world) to a state where one can never have enough. Kate Alderton’s Arlen Wilson is a bra-burning feminist poet, but (if that’s the right word) full of love for her husband and her children, who are as sweet as can be. If Mr and Mrs Wilson (how plain those names sound for such unplain individuals) hold the centre of the plot together, there are plenty of splendid performances swirling around them. Jethro Skinner is full of bonhomie and voracious sexuality as Timothy Leary, not even cowed by prison, inspiring a bravura song and dance number every bit as good as Dr Evil’s “It’s A Hard Knock Life”. Leigh Kelly’s Goat Man is (how can I put this?) eye-catching and Josh Darcy’s Ken Campbell is an uncanny impersonation of the old rogue, all unpredictable charisma and commitment. Though 8 is a little steep for the programme, it does include a superb essay by John Higgs (who wrote the definitive story of pop anarchists, The KLF, who trace their roots back to Ken Campbell’s seminal show) which brings us right up to date with the hijacking of the fun element of conspiracy theories by the alt-right in the post-truth world of 2017 – though, rightly, he claims that we have always lived in a “post-truth” world, it’s just that its creators are more brazen and more powerful than ever. When the images of boobs and balls and a squid singing Radiohead’s “Creep” (every bit as brilliant as it sounds) fade from the mind, Wilson’s ideas (like Phillip K Dick’s smuggled into the mainstream) seem closer and closer to reality every day. There probably isn’t a cult directing our world from Sirius (at his outer limits, Wilson can go a bit David Icke, never without a twinkle in his eye though), but, in an interconnected world of instant communication, the question of who is working with whom and to what end, is no less relevant to the Left and the non-political, for all of its appropriation by the Right, led by their champion, tweeting outlandish allegations at 3.00am from The White House. How the world can escape from the Chapel perilous into which it is being led and away from a state of paranoia into agnosticism, is the key question for our times. Cosmic Trigger The Play is a Love & Will production at the Cockpit Theatre until 27 May.

The historic sex abuse investigation needs a dose of common sense – Spectator.co.uk (blog)

Amid the tidal wave of allegations of historic sexual abuse by so-called VIP paedophiles, yet another high-profile police investigation has stalled. Wiltshire Police, who are looking into claims made against the late Sir Edward Heath, revealed two weeks ago that they had released the only other two people arrested, saying theyface no further action. Despite this, officers told Radio 4s Today programme that Operation Conifer remains an ongoing investigation and that there are a significant number of allegations made by a separate number of individuals. But its unclear where else the investigation can go. Following the abandonment of another probe that of Operation Midland by the Metropolitan Police, the former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor isreportedto be suing the anonymouswitnessknown only as Nick, who has accused him and others of decades-old sex crimes. Following an independent review by a retired high court judge, Sir Richard Henriques, Nick has been described as a fantasist. Northumbria Police are also considering whether to charge him for attempting to pervert the course of justice. Mr Proctor is now suing the Metropolitan Police for damages; so too are former army chief Lord Bramall and the celebrity DJ Paul Gambaccini, who have also been falsely accused of abuse and face no further action. The claims could collectively cost the Met an estimated 3 million but the damage and financial cost to these mens reputations is incalculable. The question is, just how many others are facing historic accusations which are false? Police across the UK have been so overwhelmed by the onslaught of child abuse allegations including current, non-recent, online and peer-to-peer abuse that many forces have reached saturation point, according to Britains most senior child protection police officer. Simon Bailey, Chief Constable of the Norfolk Constabulary, is so concerned by the unprecedented volume that he has proposed the decriminalisation of offenders who do not pose a physical threat to children, such as those viewing low level online child pornography. Instead, they should be dealt with through counselling and rehabilitation, he saidin February. Mr Baileys radical suggestion comes in the wake ofstatisticsthat are truly staggering. The number of child abuse reports has leapt by 80 per cent in just three years, with police receiving an average of 112 complaints a day. There are now more than 70,000 complaints a year, with forces preparing an estimated 40,000 reports of abuse from the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. That inquiry set up in the wake of revelations that Jimmy Savile was a predatory paedophile is projected to cost 100 million over the next five years. Why are so many people coming forward now? Sociologists might call this a moral panic, an explosive amplification of genuine public concern victims are told they should know they will be believed. This has been coupled with a burgeoning and increasingly powerful survivor movement, a growth in the number of psychotherapists helping the vulnerable recover repressed memories, and compensation specialists at theAssociation of Child Abuse Lawyersactively soliciting allegations all fuelled by social media and the anonymous ether of Twitterland. So how to deal with the sheer volume of accusations, especially when some go back decades? One filter the police could use is plausibility; instead of simply believing victims outright, officers need to consider that some claims might be false, elicited in dubious recovered memory psychotherapy, or motivated by the prospect of compensation. One area in which this should apply is in claims of so-called Satanic ritual abuse, where accusers claim there is an international network of devil-worshipping paedophiles who breed babies for sacrifice, murder, rape, drink blood and even eat body parts in occult ceremonies. It sounds ridiculous and it is a government-funded inquiry as far back as 1994 concluded that ritual abuse was amyth. But, incredibly, some recent allegations made to police involvesuch claims. Operation Hydrant set up to oversee investigations of non-recent child sex abuse within institutions or by people of public prominence has looked at some of the most controversial cases. These include the high-profile Operation Midland which was abandoned aftercosting a staggering 2.5 million and the farcical Operation Conifer, which cost more than1 million. Last November, the Mail on Sundayreportedthat four of Sir Edwards accusers, all women, had shared lurid stories of sexual abuse, child sacrifice and murder in occult ceremonies. A confidential report by Dr Rachel Hoskins, an expert on religion-based ritual crime, who was called in to examine witness statements and other evidence gathered by police, concluded that the Satanic claims were preposterous and that the women knew each other well and had swapped tales. In February, the Daily Mailreportedthat the women had talked about possible compensation payouts and that one may even have already submitted a claim. Despite this, the outlandish allegations against Sir Edward are now common currency in the blogosphere and on Twitter. They include those made by David Icke, the former sports presenter and Green Party spokesman, who alleges thatSavile was a Satanistwho procured children for the former prime minister and others at the Haut de la Garenne childrens home in Jersey, the subject of an earlierhigh-profile police investigation. One common denominator in the VIP Satanic paedophile ring motif is a belief shared by some psychotherapists involved in counselling victims. As Dr Hoskins made clear, the main woman accuser who sparked Operation Conifer known as Lucy X recovered her abuse memories whilein therapy underhypnosisin the 1980s at the height of the recovered memory movement. She also noted that Nickhad been helped to rememberby separate psychotherapists using similar (recovered memory) techniques. Clearly Nick and Lucy X have suffered severe issues and possibly need sensitive professional help. But when memories turn to Satanic ritual abuse, shouldnt police exercise some common sense and judgment, especially when investigating a dead former prime minister who cannot defend himself? And, amid the growing mass of historic allegations nationally, shouldnt police be more sceptical and ask: wheres the evidence?
