New Deal coming to end.

Free at last. Never more need I enter A4E. For 13 weeks at least. As usual there was little action and no employment. As it was my last week I had to spend the day trying to get an appointment to sign back on. Not too bad. Sounds like things will become more draconian thanks to the "reforms" being introduced on the first of October. We had a little announcement read out from the dear leader, who must be some big wig at the company. They're meant to get us jobs, apparently. Also we've been redesignated "customers", having previously been clients and beneficiaries. In readin this announcement the head of the course verged on the sardonic. He's resigning for pastures new, so he can afford to be.

There was meant to be a woman called Amy coming. Never met her myself, but everyone else seems to dislike and fear her. Luckily she was called away at the last minute. There'll be no frog-marching me off to indentured labour at an agency.

I'm no Project Censored, but there are some news stories I'd like to see given more attention.
1) Featureless Indy reporter Johann Hari, known for his feminism and neo-lib/neo-con views was coached by a spin doctor on the lies to tell about his trip to Iraq, to bring propaganda from his otherwise anti-war paper for the war.
2) bin Mahfouz, the Saudi involved in all sorts of chicanery from the Reagan/Iran nexus onwards in sueing all and sundry to stop information getting out about his funding of Islamic terror.
Billy Bragg was on the telly this morning. He was talking about the Tory who's defected to Labour (which says more about the treachery of Labour than of him). He worked as a shepherd, apprently. Bragg asked the interviewer where. "He's got a large estate." Bragg: "My dad used to drive one of those." I think Americans won't get that.
I had a dream. Can't rmember much about it. There was something to do with racism. It was presented in lecture format.

Legs forward symbolises obedience to the goddess, or so I hear.

Nice hat.

That is all.

Image conscious.

I've been posting a lot of pretty pictures. A picture speaks a thousand words, as they say. A thousand points of light. I've always been a great believer in the effects of small things on the human mind. Washing the graffiti away lowered New York crime levels. Placing covert diagrams around the shop allowed Derren Brown to divert people to special offers. No doubt the grammatically incorrect use of "she" as the gender neutral pronoun is engineered by the powers that be, the Establishment, the effect the image of men.

That's a big conspiracy, you might say. But Johann Hari doesn't need a conspiracy, he and the rest of the media just follow each other around. One of them does something, especially something as sriking as the misuse of grammar, and the rest follow. Mind you, Johann Hari is involved in a large conspiracy. He travelled to Iraq just before the invasion and told a bucketload of lies about it. He was, it turns out, part of a conspiracy to put pro-war view in the media. At least, so says Private Eye.

Anyway, more pretty pictures:

"He'll tell us what to do." -- Homer Simpson.

Not that pretty, are they?

Throwing a paddy.

Not an ethnographic version of dwarf tossing. I think it's an East Midlands expression. That's where the English language, at least the important elements seperating Old English from Middle English, sprang up, so get used to it. I remember "chavvy" being used long before that Dent woman popularised the term chav, too.

Bad day. Bad twenty-four hours. Freshest in my mind, there is a new volunteer to replace the fragrant young woman who was previously there. He's ugly. I prefer the appearance of men to be unremarkable, but this man is repulsively ugly. I assume it's a medical condition as he has two hearing aids too, but that's no excuse. People don't carry their colosomty bags to work, after all, so why does he take that face around unveiled? These are all minor complaints, as is the arrogant swagger. Most offensive to a taciturn man like myself is that he never shuts up. Funnily enough it didn't make it any better that his words were mostly incomprehensible. If I wasn't a pacifist I'd have solved the problem. A man who can't control his tongue is really less than an animal anyway. An animal has no choice, a man who natters on like a woman is commiting one of the sins most often condemned in the Bible. New Testament, especially.

Computers, too. Problems. Ordering an inter-library loan book, three in fact. Hopsicker's "Barry and the Boys", "Puppetmasters" (Phillip Willan), "The Beast Awakens" (Martin Lee). The super competent library employee gave me a new library card. New number. Couldn't get onto the computer yesterday because it was booked in the old number. Took a bit of sorting out. Fine now. Moral: normal competence better than supercompetence.

Rumours that Sheffield Wednesday are appointing Neil Warnock, former manager of the hated local rivals, as their manager. The man who once said he would like to manage Wednesday, so that he could "buy some crap players, get them relegated, and then retire to Cornwall". Might be a bad decision.

Sport! A conspiracy of sport has recently happened. I'm convinced, although there's no evidence. The Formula One, I mean. Supposedly McLaren have benefited from information obtained illicitly from a disgruntled member of the Ferrari team. The McLaren team member was also allegedly disgruntled. One of the drivers, known to be unsettled, was egging him on. McLaren have been disqualified from this year's, and next year's, championship. They were leading Ferrari by a wide margin, now Ferrari have been handed the title by administrative fiat, as there are no other serious (or now even nominal) contenders.
This is what I think happened: Alonso was involved because he was disgruntled. The McLaren engineer was probably offered money or future employment. The one behind it all were the Ferrari team. They could easily afford to feed a bit of chickenfeed, to use the intelligence jargon, to McLaren then they arrange to have McLaren caught in the act of receiving. Afterall, there's no evidence McLaren benefited from having this information. A Ferrari engineer has been giving them information which they have discarded. The question is whether he acted alone.
I had things to say yesterday, but I was scuppered. Something about bank runs. The town smelling of flumps. And the following quotes.
"The true equation is 'democracy' = government by world financiers...The
main mark of modern governments is that we do not know who governs, de facto any more than de jure. We see the politician and not his backer; still less the
backer of the backer; or what is most important of all, the banker of the
backer. Enthroned above all, in a manner without parallel in all past, is the veiled prophet of finance, swaying all men living by a sort of magic, and delivering oracles in a language not understanded [sic] of the people."
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, Candour Magazine, 13 July 1956, p. 12

"Thought must be the harder, heart be the keener,mind must be the greater,
while our strength lessens"

But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man And so is Lola

From Usenet:
Every year, thousands of Americans are victimized by a swindle known as the "immigrant abuse scam." What's amazing is this shakedown is paid for by the U.S. taxpayer under the guise of stopping domestic violence.
One of those persons is Roger Knudson, 64, of Arizona. When he discovered his wife was having an affair, he filed for divorce. Fearing the judge would learn her visa had expired and order her back to Mexico, Knudson's wife fell into a rage and attacked him.
But the DA refused to prosecute the assault. Then the illegal went to a local woman's shelter that provided her pro bono legal services and told her to accuse her husband of the very crime that she herself had committed. "I have spent thousands of dollars since 2002 clearing myself of the accusations," Knudson wrote sadly.

Yes, I remember when the Ottawa government made it law that someone could be kicked out of his house if he was accused of abuse. The spectre was a prostitute taken to the house phoning the police and ending up with the house, which was a possibility. Don't know if it ever happened. Can't be bothered looking for that now.

Out of time.

A giant amongst men

Osama, that is.

Thinks look bigger when covered in long hair, it says. Perhaps that explains the giant killer badgers of Basra. Or the overweight owls.

So, is ObL 5'7 or 6'6? I don't think it really matters. I'm not likely to ever meet him, whether he was an Arsenal fan or not. It's the image it creates in the mind; menacing.

I meant to continue from yesterday. Keel about the enlightenment granted by the superintelligence and Icke, who went mental when he came into contact. Sinful flesh can't survive contact with the almighty. It's the baptism of fire, what is impure is burned away. Only that which comes from heaven can go to heaven. Enlightenment, though, is an easily corrupted thing. Knowledge becomes arrogance and self-worship. Light becomes dark. The sin against the holy spirit is the only unforgivable, for it is irreversable.

I don't suppose that'll get me anywhere.

"...The parahuman Serpent People of the past are still among us. They were probably worshipped by the builders of Stonehenge and the forgotten ridge-making cultures of South America.
"...In some parts of the world the Serpent People successfully posed as gods and imitated the techniques of the superintelligence. This led to the formation of pagan religions centered around human sacrifices. The conflict, so far as man himself was concerned, became one of religions and races. Whole civilizations based upon the worship of these false gods rose and fell in Asia, Africa, and South America. The battleground had been chosen, and the mode of conflict had been decided upon.
"The human race would supply the pawns. The mode of control was complicated as usual. Human beings were largely free of direct control. Each individual HAD TO CONSCIOUSLY COMMIT HIMSELF TO ONE OF THE OPPOSING FORCES...
"The main battle was for what was to become known as the human soul.
"Once an individual had committed himself, he opened a door so that an indefinable something could actually enter his body and exercise some control over his subconscious mind (this would be either the pure Spirit of Christ or the corrupting spirit of anti-Christ. Just as nature hates a vacuum, so does the human spirit. In other words, what Keel is saying is that the human spirit cannot work entirely of it's own, but is a channel or a vessel of 'other' powers, whether good or evil. The act of 'free will' which is given to man is a 'choice' over which of these powers to submit to, and to accept personal responsibility for that choice - Branton).
"...the Serpent People or Omega Group, attacked man in various ways, trying to rid the planet of him. But the superintelligence was still able to look over man... God worked out new ways of communication and control, always in conflict with the Serpent People."

-- John Keel, "Our Haunted Planet", as quoted by Branton

I'm reading this. Reminds me. Eroticisng cars. Kids stuff. Back in the 50s, according to a book called "The Hidden Persuaders", wrestling wanted to attract more women, female viewers. They came to the conclusion that the way to do this was skin tight outfits and lots of writhing. That's "American Woman", I suppose.

Out of time again. Pity.

Paranoid Press Review

Something which may perhaps be of interest:

Paranoia is usually the reserve of conspiracy theorists of every political stripe, fans of science fiction, and Black people. We are given a pass because of the horrific treatment meted out to us throughout American history. Slavery, lynching, the Tuskegee experiment and COINTELPRO give us paranoia rights while others are mocked and dismissed for expressing their suspicions of malfeasance by the powerful. But other Americans would be better served if they acknowledged their own need to question authority and to doubt the benevolence of their leaders
Because the times are ripe for all thoughtful men and women to be suspicious it might be helpful for democracy if all Americans tried to think like Black people. Everyone should start slowly. It isn’t necessary to dwell on the increased likelihood of a mortgage denial or police brutality. Just ask, “If I were Black, would I believe that terror threats always take place when Bush’s poll numbers drop?”

That retardsman is dissing He's gone mad, I think. Like the people I see wearing coats on a boiling hot summers day, he's become detached from reality. I suppose that's what comes of knowing the truth, or dangerously insightful parts of it. There's always a danger when you know part of the truth that your knowledge will be corrupted and hijacked by evil forces.

It pays to be paranoid, as it says up top. And I admit isn't particularly deep, although I'm speaking largely from memory because my connection won't let me see it. Look at the Brooklyn bridge abduction. The two of them, some kind of intelligence agents, were taken off to a beach and telepathically communicated with by a woman who was possessed by aliens and also concerned about a fish. The theories were multitudinous. Perhaps the aliens are concerned about the environment, perhaps they need something from it, perhaps they'd given the woman psychic powers, perhaps they wanted us to think they were eco-aliens so Mr de Cuellar would be spaceman-friendly. Perhaps, on the other hand, it was all a brain-washing operation. The only thing the aliens have shown a consistent interest in is the human organism.

So it is with Obscure and unknown in both anti-feminist and blackist communities, there's no reason for anyone to have set it up as propaganda however many years ago.

Of course, it's true there's more than one way to skin a mockingbird. Blue bird of friendliness, like a guardian angel it's, always there. A right-wing government is one backed by the press barons, a left-wing government is one too democratic to line them up and shoot them.

I travelled among unknown men
In lands beyond the sea;
Nor, England, did I know 'til then
What love I bore to thee!
'Tis past, that melancholy dream -
Nor will I quit thy shore
A second time, for I still seem
To love thee more and more.
-- "Lucy", the Divine Comedy

Up the junction

Something odd happened today. The Jap who works at the shop began shouting loudly, apparently think she was singing. In the middle of the shop.

Something odder. Bin Laden's video doesn't even have him making any present-related claims. There is footage of one of the supposed 9/11 hijackers, supposedly taken before his self-inflicted death. Trouble: the BBC says he's still alive and well in Saudi Arabia. Maybe he's in an IntelCentre zoo with bin Laden and the other big movie stars of the age of terror. I picture something like Hollywood, but full of turbans and beards, segregated somewhere in the desert with their film studio and props. And all the coke and whore they could ever want, remembering ObL wasn't just in that Dubai hospital for dialysis and a meeting with the CIA, but a sex slave too. The 9/11 hijackers, infamously, got warmed up with drugs and prostitutes on the morning of their martyrdom.

A book. I never could get the first part of the book by the Relfes. They might be scientologists, but L Ron Hubbard revealed CIA pain-drugs-hypnosis mind control techniques back in the 50s, he wasn't just an escaped devil-worshipper trying to breed a soulless human to imbue with the spirit of anti-Christ.

That girl has a nice arse. Going back off to uni now.

Monday, 10 September 2007 does me good like it bloody well should...

This website I linked to yesterday:

"Design, build and install a Homeland Security Centre for an Asian country.
The Opcentre can override all national radio and TV broadcasts in time of
I don't like that company.

Dog Soldiers was on last night, a film I've been wanting to watch for a while. Quite good. Not that accurate, mind. Popular misconception, the stuff about silver and werewolves.

As usual on a monday I'm a bit busy. More tomorrow.

And now shes two years older
Her mothers with a soldier
She left me when my drinking
Became a proper stinging
The devil came and took me
From bar to street to bookie
No more nights by the telly
No more nights nappies smelling

End of world imminent. Sell shares.

End of the world coming again. Drill going live. FEMA shipping people off in railway carriages equipped with shackles and instituting a UN backed New World Order. Operation Vigilant Shield about to start up, the American military preparing for martial law.

The USAF stood down (this having been announced publicly: Putin/terrorists, get cracking) on the 14th September. Someone betting that the stock market will crash by 21/9. Betting billions. Certainly indicators. USAF grounded. Terror attack, 9/11 stylee. Stock market crash. Some unnamed conspirator rakes it in. Wouldn't be the first time. Military steps in under his decidership.

ObL gets involved.

I don't think it'll happen. I'll keep my extensive stock portfolio unmolested. The world dictatorship is already here. Why would they change things? Going overt would run counter to their past modus operandi: one centred on brainwashing and covert opinion management.

Speaking of opinion management, "launch a powerful psyop against an engaged enemy".

If you don't psyop them, they'll psyop you.

Who the f*ck is Alice?

The McCanns have finally been assessed as suspects by the police, or polizia or whatever they call them over there. Haven't even got sniffer dogs. About time too. Should be standard procedure, and I thought it was, to suspect the parents. Even without the evidence.

To quote someone or other on the RI board: Clarence Mitchell, government media spinner, still around, but described as " close family friend"

Also: "Underneath Disneyland, that's where you see the real thing my friend...Mickey's Shadow Side" -Steven Webber, Late Last Night(1999)

Remember the film "They Live"? They accidentally detonate an alien watch which opens a portal into a subterranean version of the city where two paramilitaries (possibly aliens disguised as men) are dancing around and bragging about being "the A-team" for killing off the resistance. Underneath Disneyland is where Walt's corpse is in cryogenic suspension, too. Those Nazis like freezing. Hence the Polar Men, I suppose.

As Above, So Below.

Seen this? Man snook into Bush's hemisphere with a joke security pass. And a man dressed as Bin Laden. So much for terrorism. So much for journalism. Remember Lobbygate and the "Yes Men"? Palast got himself accepted as a lobbyist no problem at all without even having a proper disguise. The Yes Men ended up speaking to a conference of the World Bank before anyone noticed they were comedians rather than consultants. One terrorist with the same idea and a bomb in a briefcase could have done the world a big favour there.

Happiness lesson for all. It was either that or more of the drugs, I suppose.
Speaking of terrorists, Osama bin Laden's new release is out soon, it seems. Don't know how they know that, maybe he's making press releases from his mountain hideaway. Shove the dialysis machine behind the curtain, get the hair dye out to instill hope in the faithful by showing the miraculous regeneration of colour in the pontifical beard. More likely he's in some CIA zoo, or the zoo or some organisation with a less famous name. They roll him out from behind the curtain for special occasions, anniversaries, elections and so on. Ever since the CIA got him in Dubai before 9/11.
I don't think there's any need for a link to that. See: the News.
Yes, those McCanns are troublesome. I see the powerful people behind them, as Fairhall says. I wonder why they are behind them. Casa PIa orphanage. Sex ring. Paedophiles. In Portugal, of course. There is a common idea that these things don't happen. Not so. See the "Pedophocracy" linked to on the right here. Aquino, he was a bad guy. Gave lots of toddlers sexually transmitted diseases then commited arson to destory the evidence, or some of it. Not enough. But he knew the prosecutors, probably fellow pervs, so he got off. He wrote many reports for the American military intelligence community, on Mind War and on the unreality of psychic phenomena. Incidentally he set up a group called the Temple of Set, because the Church of Satan wasn't esoteric enough for him. McMartin. They did find those tunnels at McMartin, although some would have you believe otherwise. Some archaeologists dug and found them.
As Above, So Below.
I've often wondered if Steinem was a Monarch mind slave. Fits, it does.
More next time.

Jobsearch day...

There are two assisstant managers at the charity shop. I think I've mentioned that before. One of them has been malingering pretty much since I arrived. They've now advertised for a temporary replacement. It pays more than the existing manager gets, I notice. Also more than the advert in the window of the shop says, by no less than 17p per hour.

Back to A4E, it was a typical day. Read the papers. Killed time. Not many more weeks before it's all over. Only a 13 week course, after all. Week after next there's some techcert thing to keep me busy, so that's one less jobsearch day to worry about.

More horror stories about Ambitions, the world's most hated personnel agency, too. A story I heard: someone there had been working as a farm labourer while on the dole and had ended up fleeing across the fields when some Scot woman from the dole fraud office came looking for "benefit cheats".

47% of those who leave A4E, or who left in May, end up in work, according to one of their posters. Mind you, I've been there months now and haven't seen anyone get an actual job. I've seen three get temp jobs, none for more than three months, one of them has already been sacked.

Also heard today, one m'fellow incarceratees worked for a time in an abattoir. He was appaled by the waste of the horns and so on. Apprently they're cleaner than hospitals, where a surprising number has spent a lot of time. None of them had anything good to say about nurses.

The rest is blank
And that's the worst
An empty head
For an empty purse
You had a laugh
Or so you think
But in the morning
You just stink
-- "Just the One", the Levellers

Sounds a bit like rap, but with decent music, does that.

I'm feeling musical

I was just recommending on the RI board that people listen to more Billy Bragg. The Bragg version of "A World Turned Upside Down". Billy Bragg and Wilco's version of Woody Guthrie's "Christ for President" and "Unwelcome Guest". Bragg's "Power in a Union". I like "Fantasy" by the Levellers. I believe it's about Tony Blair. Written in 1995, apprently.

I can't listen to this. But I can read this. I remember that Newcastle game.

Less funky but I also like "Always on my Mind". Whichever version they keep putting on the radio. The Wurzels' "I got a Brand New Combine Harvester". "Star Trekkin'" by The Firm. "Fog on the Tyne" by Lindisfarne.

Doing my head in.

I don't like using this computer. Small screen. Not on the end of the row. Clean mousemat. I'm not one for pointless change.

I heard a ringtone today of the song "House of the Rising Sun". Reminds me, I heard something to do with the CIA mind control programme that used that term.

I heard someone today who was unintelligible. There are some strong accents around here. The local news sometimes has subtitles if they're interviewing someone from the rural parts.

Fallout Girl

I always find it difficult to find something to say on a monday. Whether something esoteric or something about the iniquities of the system of Job-Seekers' Allowance (formerly Income Support, formerly Unemployment Benefit, formerly Poor Law Relief).

A day of good things and bad things, on the whole. The women who worked there before has returned. Been to the Reading festival. Favourite band called "Fallout Boy". I recognise the cultural reference. I'm more of a Mull Historical Society man, myself. Not that I've ever heard anything by the Fallout Boy, of course. Don't intend to, either. There's another noisy toy too. A tweety-pie. Light-activated. I notice I've neglected to book this computer for tomorrow. I'll have to use the one next to it. I don't like change.

People keep assuming I work in shops. Of course, in one shop I do. I have a little badge with "VOLUNTEER" on it, I must look quite official. No-one seems to think it's odd for a volunteer to be in a bank. Reminds me of "Jon Ronson on... invisibility". Turns out the best way to avoid being seen isn't to actually be invisible, which is difficult to manage, or to run in front of a white wall holding a white sheet, as the Men Who Stare At Goats suggest. It's to wear one of those high-vis jackets. No-one takes notice of workmen. It's a wonder that Ronson didn't put any of his supersoldier mates on the radio.

Edit: A link.
