The Flash Mob Attack - How To Defend?

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - All eight suspects are in custody after a brutal attack in Five Points early Monday morning which left the teenage victim in critical condition, according to Columbia police.

CHICAGO, IL (WLS) -- The recent series of mob-style attacks on Chicago's Near North Side mark the first major hurdles facing Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago's new police superintendent Garry McCarthy. The latest attack happened Tuesday night. A witness tells WGN 15-20 teens beat and robbed two people at Chicago and Wabash

AKRON, OH -- Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world'' as they confronted Marshall and his family.

NO. VIRGINIA -- Three people were beaten by mobs in Northern Virginia in two separate incidents that occurred within five minutes of each other on Saturday night, authorities said.

These events have consumed the discussion at most self-defense focused websites in the last few weeks. Accompanying the discussion is the usual hand wringing regarding what to do if one is beset by a gang of thugs bent on your destruction. Well, I have my views on this which will no doubt shock the senses of the Doodley Doo Rights of the gun world.

First, this was not some group of young teenaged honor students. In all cases it was a group of urban thugs. Second, they were not there to practice for their debate on the ills of capitalism. Third, they understand only one thing...violence. So understand who they are and be ready to speak their language.

1). Don't go to stupid places with stupid people to do stupid things. Simple but often ignored. Listen, we do not live in a fair world where everyone respects everyone else. Nor where everyone gets along. You may in fact be totally color-blind in a socio-ethnic sort of way, but not everyone is. So even if your liberal sociology professor thinks it is a cool thing to take a stroll at midnight through a ethnically homogenous part of town (different ethnicity that you), it is still a stupid idea.

2). Always have a method to defend yourself. Even if it is not socially acceptable, or in line with the rules of the day, having some sort of weapon is essential. Right about now, some of the Doodley Doo Rights are screaming that I am telling people to violate the law. Well, go and google these stories. Look at the faces of the victims...specially the one on life support right now. Put yourself in their shoes. Your choice is to arm yourself in violation of the rules, or to take the raping, beating and robbery? What would you choose?

3). Avoid if you can. If you are standing around and see a group of twenty young urban thugs about two blocks away yelling, "kill whitey", and looking at your reflection in the store window, realize that you have not been in the sun in a while, here is my advice - "RUN". If it looks like trouble, it probably is. The gang is not there to debate the effects of american corporate expansion on the development of the urban neighborhoods with you.

4). If you cannot avoid, attack...brutally and viciously. This is not the time to worry about some goofball fear monger's articles about being sued, nor about anything of the sort. It is time to deploy your weapons and attack the leaders. Listen folks, there is disparity of force by the sheer number against you and the knowledge you have based on these prior flash mob events.

If you have limited yourself by the rules and only have a knife, be certain you know how to use it. Make it big enough that it will cause extreme pain and bleeding when you stab the attacker. This is not the place for a legally carried tomato peeler that is two inches or less. You need a fixed or folding knife that is at least 4 inches long.

When the time comes, do not flash the knife like you are some crocodile dundee type guy ("that's not a knife"). Stab the first man deep and hard in his face and move to the next guy and repeat the exercise. Do the same to anyone within reach. When their buddies reel back, screaming in horror and pain, holding their bloodied faces with eyeballs hanging out, it will create hesitation. Use that time to disengage.

If you have a pistol, please make sure it is a modern high capacity weapon with a couple of spare magazines in your belt. The Suarez International company gun, a Glock 17 with three magazines, yields a sum total of 52 rounds. Figure three rounds per man, and you can reduce an angry mob of panga swinging killers into a fleeing group of bloodied bad guys. Draw it and yell, "Get The F*** Back!" If they do, run away. If they do not, shoot the first man in the face. The rest will take care of itself.

It really is very simple. Might you get into trouble? Sure, but being in jail because you stabbed three guys on the street is far better than being in the hospital having holes drilled into your head to relieve the pressure on your brain while the female members of your party are getting HIV exams in the next room. The only way to defeat brutality is with extreme and greater brutality.

The Dictatorship of the Judges

The time has come for a peoples uprising in the UK.

We need so see in Britain what we are witnessing in Greece - an uprising against the corrupt government, useless voting system, bankers, foreign judges and the entire globalist structures.


'Undesirable' and 'dangerous' immigrants who have committed serious crimes in Britain cannot be deported if they face 'ill-treatment' at home because it is against their Human Rights.

The convicts can never be sent back - regardless of how bad their crimes are, European judges ruled today.

As two Somalis won their appeal against deportation today there were fears that up to 200 more criminals could be allowed to stay fearing they will be tortured if sent back.

No going back: Panel of seven judges at European Court of Human Rights ruled two
Somali criminals could not be sent back in a test case

Strasbourg judges that the men could not be sent back to Mogadishu - despite serious convictions.

The European Court of Human Rights awarded Abdisamad Adow Sufi and Abdiaziz Ibrahim Elmi, both currently in UK immigration detention centres, £12,500 and £6,700 respectively for costs and expenses in bringing the case.

Sufi, 24, claimed asylum in the UK in 2003 on the grounds that he belonged to a minority clan persecuted by Somali militia. His account was rejected as not credible and asylum refused.

Elmi, 42, arrived in the UK in 1988 and was granted leave to stay as a refugee in 1989, renewed indefinitely in 1993.

After convictions for a number of serious criminal offences - including burglary and threats to kill in Sufi's case, and robbery and supplying class A drugs cocaine and heroin in Elmi's case - they were issued with deportation orders.

Their UK appeals that they risked being ill-treated or killed if returned to Mogadishu were rejected.

The European Court of Human Rights blocked their deportation pending a hearing of their appeals to the Strasbourg court.

Violence fears: UK appeals by the Somalis who claimed they would face the risk of harm if sent back to Mogadishu were rejected (file picture). However, the court overturned that ruling

Today the seven-judge court ruled unanimously that deporting them would breach the Human Rights Convention Article 3 which bans 'inhuman or degrading treatment'.
The ruling said: 'The court reiterated that the prohibition of torture and of inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment is absolute, irrespective of the victims' conduct.

'Consequently, the applicants' behaviour, however undesirable or dangerous, could not be taken into account.'

The judges said no one disputed that, towards the end of 2008, Mogadishu was not a safe place to live for the majority of its citizens. The situation had deteriorated since then.

The ruling cited the UK's own Asylum and Immigration Tribunal which acknowledged the dangers, while saying it was possible that individuals with connections to powerful people in Mogadishu might be able to live there safely.

Anyone else being returned would face a real risk of persecution or serious harm, although those whose home area was in any part of southern and central Somalia might be able to go back in safety and without undue hardship.

Human Rights Watch described the situation in Mogadishu as 'one of the world's worst human rights catastrophes'.

The judges concluded that the general level of violence in Mogadishu 'was of sufficient intensity to pose a real risk of treatment in breach of Article 3 to anyone in the capital'.

The judgment described the case as the 'lead case' against the UK, with 214 similar cases pending before the same court.

The BNP Parrot Is Deceased

Image - " Nah mate, the parrot aint dead. Its just about to take wing, get a massive vote and take power in Britain. Look, its still twitching and groaning as it lies on the bottom of the bird cage. That proves it aint dead right ".

Sorry but the BNP parrot is now deceased.

That parrot aint gonna fly no more, as it dead.



Game over.

The vote at the GGM, based on laughable proxy votes which were the latest Griffinite scam, has ensured that the final nail in the BNP coffin was driven straight through the heart of the party.

The BNP is now a pathetic cult of personality filled with window licking morons who deserve as much respect as the fawning catamites of some oriental nabob.

The few remaining BNP members apparently do not care about those things like ;

financial transparency
comptence in office

etc etc etc

Therefore the BNP is the sum total of its parts - which is an embrassment to nationalism, democracy, politics and our nation.

The members are now like the workers in a Chinese factory, they are so stupid they think their role in nationalism is to simply rubber stamp everything Griffin does.

Just like the mental defectives they truly are, they cannot think for themselves.

They can only continue to lick the window and Griffins arse.

The internal opposition to Nick Griffin and his cabal of halfwits and crooks will not win, as unlike Griffin they play fair.

Griffin has surrounded with the pathetic historical detritus of nationalism, the perpetual political failures whose sole use to Griffin is to be paid to grovel and lick his feet.

They dont care about winning the nationalist struggle, they only care about themselves and getting PAID.

Therefore they will smear, abuse and attack their opponents until the BNP is filled with just window lickers and arse lickers and crooks on the take.

The BNP is no longer going nowhere fast, it is now going backwards at breakneck speed.

The BNP is finished.

The question for people is what comes next.

Do they continue to support The Nick Griffin Party with their time and money, or do they grow a backbone, a brain and a set of bollocks and leave the party ?

Americas New Racists

The same thing happens in the UK all the time - mainly white, middle class liberal journalists lie to cover up the truth about the ongoing racial crime wave against whites by non-whites in the UK.

Good for this writer, a black man, to challenge the white liberal liars face on.


The late South African economist William Hutt, in his 1964 book, "The Economics of the Colour Bar," said that one of the supreme tragedies of the human condition is that those who have been the victims of injustices and oppression "can often be observed to be inflicting not dissimilar injustices upon other races."

Born in 1936, I've lived through some of our openly racist history, which has included racist insults, beatings and lynchings. Tuskegee Institute records show that between the years 1880 and 1951, 3,437 blacks and 1,293 whites were lynched. I recall my cousin's and my being chased out of Fishtown and Grays Ferry, two predominantly Irish Philadelphia neighborhoods, in the 1940s, not stopping until we reached a predominantly black North or South Philly neighborhood.

Today all that has changed. Most racist assaults are committed by blacks. What's worse is there're blacks, still alive, who lived through the times of lynching, Jim Crow laws and open racism who remain silent in the face of it.

Last year, four black Skidmore College students yelled racial slurs while they beat up a white man because he was dining with a black man. Skidmore College's first response was to offer counseling to one of the black students charged with the crime. In 2009, a black Columbia University professor assaulted a white woman during a heated argument about race relations. According to interviews and court records obtained and reported by Denver's ABC affiliate (12/4/2009), black gangs roamed downtown Denver verbally venting their hatred for white victims before assaulting and robbing them during a four-month crime wave. Earlier this year, two black girls beat a white girl at a McDonald's, and the victim suffered a seizure. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel ordered an emergency shutdown of the beaches in Chicago because mobs of blacks were terrorizing families. According to the NBC affiliate there (6/8/2011), a gang of black teens stormed a city bus, attacked white victims and ran off with their belongings.

Racist black attacks are not only against whites but also against Asians.

In San Francisco, five blacks beat an 83-year-old Chinese man to death. They threw a 57-year-old woman off a train platform. Two black Oakland teenagers assaulted a 59-year-old Chinese man; the punching knocked him to the ground, killing him. At Philly's South Philadelphia High School, Asian students report that black students routinely pelt them with food and beat, punch and kick them in school hallways and bathrooms as they hurl racial epithets such as "Hey, Chinese!" and "Yo, Dragon Ball!" The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund charged the School District of Philadelphia with "deliberate indifference" toward black victimization of Asian students.

In many of these brutal attacks, the news media make no mention of the race of the perpetrators. If it were white racist gangs randomly attacking blacks, the mainstream media would have no hesitation reporting the race of the perps. Editors for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune admitted to deliberately censoring information about black crime for political reasons. Chicago Tribune Editor Gerould Kern recently said that the paper's reason for censorship was to "guard against subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion."

These racist attacks can, at least in part, be attributed to the black elite, who have a vested interest in racial paranoia. And that includes a president who has spent years aligned with people who have promoted racial grievance and polarization and appointed an attorney general who's accused us of being "a nation of cowards" on matters of race and has refused to prosecute black thugs who gathered at a Philadelphia voting site in blatant violation of federal voter intimidation laws. Tragically, black youngsters — who are seething with resentments, refusing to accept educational and other opportunities unknown to blacks yesteryear — will turn out to be the larger victims in the long run.

Black silence in the face of black racism has to be one of the biggest betrayals of the civil rights struggle that included black and white Americans.

The Black On White Crime Censorship Ending

Recently, editors for the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and the Chicago Tribune have all publicly admitted to censoring black crime. They all said they justified it to protect blacks from being stigmatized. In his recent undercover videos, LA Lawyer Ben Shapiro recorded the creator of the TV show COPS stating the same thing.

All have decided that political correctness is more important than public safety. In recent days there has been a major online backlash against these policies. It is playing out on newspaper websites in the comment sections, on craigslist "rants," youtube comments, and facebook.

Many in South Carolina are particularly outraged over the treatment of the near fatal beating of Carter Strange in Columbia, SC. Carter Strange, 18, was jogging late at night near five points. A group of 8 black males aged 13-18 were out looking for a white person to attack.

They pounced on Strange and beat him almost to death. It wasn't until four days later that the story began receiving significant media attention in the Columbia area. The media and the Columbia Police have made no mention of "hate crime" or "lynching.”

The website for The State filled up with angry comments demanding that the newspaper call the attack a "hate crime." The State responded by deleting all the comments and disabling future comments on the story. There is a strong sense, that had the races been reversed, the media would be reporting it much more aggressively and using much stronger terms.

On Sunday, June 27th, the Peoria Chronicle reported a statement from the president of a neighborhood association about a rash of violence and disturbances from large groups of young black males. The incidents had been going on for weeks. He said the mobs target whites. In a recent incident, black teens were screaming, "Kill all whites" in his neighborhood.

The local Peoria FOX & NBC station interviewed residents who confirmed that violent mobs have been terrorizing the neighborhood. However, all mention of race was censored in the report.

After the Drudge Report posted a link to the Peoria Chronicle Sunday, thousands of posts and comments began appearing online. Many slammed the Peoria Journal Star, the city's daily paper, for never mentioning the mobs. Finally, the Peoria Journal Star broke their silence. The wrote an article calling the events "exaggerated" and attempted to smear the president of the Altoona Park neighborhood association.

However, the last two sentences in the Journal Star article seem to confirm that the story is true after all.

Rogers says the crowd was running wildly around yards and porches. It was the largest Rogers, 38, had ever seen in the neighborhood.

"They were doing a show of force," he said, "to show everybody, 'Hey, this is their hood.'"

Peoria, IL and Columbia, SC are not the only places where these events are occurring. Over the weekend, half a dozen whites were viciously assaulted by a mob of young blacks in Philadelphia. Police say the mob ranged from 50-100 people.

One woman had her leg broken. Two other were hospitalized with facial injuries. Yet the Philadelphia Inquire completely censored all mention of race in their article. No mention of “hates crimes” either.

No one has ever claimed that censoring information about crime makes the public safer. So why are major media bosses justifying all of this censorship? It is time to put public safety above political correctness and confront crime as it happens.

If media, police, and politicians do not openly and honestly confront the growing trend of brutal black on white crime things will only get much worse. It will also severely poison race relations in this country. Censorship is never justified when it puts the public in danger.

We have to withdraw from the global economy in certain sectors essential to our national stability and health and safety.

That means surgical equipment, weapons, drugs and other essentials must be produced in the UK by British businesses, not shipped in on the cheap.


Substandard surgical tools from Pakistan are putting UK patients at risk of potentially deadly injury and infection, BBC Panorama has found.

Faults include rough edges, steel burrs that can splinter during operations and corroded metals.

All surgical instruments have to meet regulatory standards but only one of the more than 180 NHS trusts and boards conducts rigorous tests on every tool.

Barts and the London NHS Trust reject almost 20% of tools as unsafe for use.

Human rights are the product of the social contract between citizens and the nation state.

No immigrant criminal has any right to claim human rights in our society.

Once an immigrant criminal commits a crime then citizenship should be revoked immediatly - and at that moment of revocation, they lose all rights to claim any legal aid or human rights protection.

Genetic Engineering

The new era of creative self evolution has begun - mankind now can erase diseases and genetic defects from his gene lines and create a perfect humanity as a prelude to us colonising the stars.

Genetic 'editing' breakthrough could lead to new treatments for diseases
By Fiona Macrae

Last updated at 1:26 AM on 27th June 2011

Comments (-) Add to My Stories Share Scientists have ‘edited’ the genetic code of life in a breakthrough that could lead to new treatments for diseases.

The discovery could lead to new ways of easing the symptoms and the pain of hundreds of conditions including haemophilia, cystic fibrosis and some hereditary forms of blindness.

For the first time, scientists have successfully ‘word-processed’ the DNA of a sick animal, returning it to health.
Breakthrough: Scientists have found a way to edit the genetic code of life which could lead to new treatments for hundreds of conditions
The mice treated had haemophilia, but with up to a third of genetic diseases caused by a single faulty gene, many more illnesses could potentially be treated this way.

The researchers, from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in the US, used a two-step process to correct a genetic fault that stops blood clotting in haemophiliacs.

First, they used an enzyme described as a ‘molecular word processor’ to home in on the genetic flaw and break open the DNA, allowing it to be edited.
They then inserted a healthy gene in exactly the right place, the journal Nature reports.
The treatment was successful, with the animals’ blood clotting at near normal levels.

What is more, it lasted for the eight months of the study and appeared to be free of side-effects.

The idea of gene therapy, or the replacement of defective genes with health ones is not new.
More...Breast cancer wonder drug could fight other tumours

But scientists have struggled to find ways of inserting the ‘good’ gene in the right place. Put in the wrong position, it could trigger the development of cancer.

Study leader Dr Katherine High said: ‘We need to perform further studies to translate this finding into safe, effective treatments for haemophilia and other single-gene diseases in humans but this is a promising strategy for gene therapy.’

She now plans to test the treatment on larger animals. However, it will be at least a decade before the editing technique is widely used to treat haemophiliacs.

The condition is much more common in men than in women and affects up to one in every 5,000 baby boys.
Symptoms range from easy bruising to prolonged bleeding which, if internal, can be life-threatening.

Haemorrhages in the brain are particularly difficult to treat and can be fatal.

Treatment involves injecting a factor that clots the blood several time a week but can have side-effects and is too expensive for use in many parts of the world.

Dr Philippa Brice, of the PHG Foundation, a genetics think-tank based in Cambridge, said that there is a real need for new treatments.

She added: One of the dangers of gene therapy is that accidental insertion of healthy genes in the wrong place can be harmful, even causing cancer.

‘This ingenious approach, harnessing one of the body’s own genetic mechanisms, may be able to overcome this problem, and these initial results in mice are very promising.’

The Military Fissure

The end game has begun.

The struggle is now between those who serve only the interests of Britain and the British people, and those who abase themselves before the EU, US, UN, NATO and the rest of the ideological wreckage of the fallen and crashed 20th century.

The military fissure is opening up - between the soldiers who have sworn an oath to serve and defend our Queen and Country and those politicians that serve the Globalists and defend the Dollar.

The stab in the back of the SDSR as British troops serve, fight and die in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya has revealed that the government is a nest of traitors esconced in a whore house called Parliament.

Both Left and Right, the Euro and the Dollar all serve as slaves to the global bankers.

Entire European nations, economies and peoples are being brought down by the planned collapse of the global banking system engineered by the banksters and their political whore puppets.

Now we know who our political leaders truly serve - the interests of their puppet masters and not our national interest.


When a prime minister feels compelled to issue a public rebuke to the heads of the Armed Forces, it suggests that something is going wrong with the finely calibrated constitutional relationship between the military and its political masters.

In the highly charged atmosphere of military operations, it is inevitable that disputes will arise between ministers and officers over how the Government’s objectives can best be achieved. But even when the exchanges become acrimonious, convention stipulates that what is said behind closed doors remains private, not splashed all over the next day’s papers.

Churchill was always quarrelling with his generals and senior staff over strategy and tactics; several were dismissed simply for complaining too much about equipment shortages and lack of manpower. He is even said to have come close to sacking General Sir Alan Brooke, his most trusted military adviser, after a series of table-thumping rows. But the intensity of these disputes only became public many years later.

More recently, both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown enjoyed a somewhat fractious relationship with their military chiefs. Mr Blair was appalled when General Sir Richard Dannatt launched a scathing attack on the Iraq war shortly after taking over as Army chief, while Mr Brown’s refusal to focus on the operational requirements of the Afghanistan campaign strained the relationship between No 10 and the top brass. Yet throughout the Labour era, both prime ministers refrained from admonishing the military in public.

David Cameron, in contrast, does not feel obliged to comply with such constraints. “You do the fighting, I’ll do the talking,” he retorted angrily this week, after criticisms of British operations in Libya, made by senior officers in both the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force, found their way into the public domain.

It could be argued that it is the Service chiefs, rather than the Prime Minister, who are to blame for this rupture of the code of conduct that is supposed to govern relations between Downing Street and the military. Whatever doubts senior officers might have about the Libyan campaign, it is their duty to present them through the proper channels, rather than air them in public.

It is as a result of their inappropriate actions that we are now presented with the unedifying spectacle of Mr Cameron publicly taking issue with our senior commanders, a state of affairs that does not reflect well on the standing of either the Armed Forces or the Government. This public spat between Service chiefs and Prime Minister will do little to lift the morale of the thousands of young men and women risking their lives in Afghanistan and Libya. It could also encourage our enemies, who will interpret disagreement among those responsible for running the campaigns as a sign of weakness.

Indeed, both Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope, the First Sea Lord, who claimed that Britain could not sustain military operations against Col Gaddafi for another 90 days, and Air Chief Marshal Sir Simon Bryant, who complained that the bombing offensive was severely depleting the RAF’s resources, can count themselves lucky that they have not been relieved of their posts. Last year, President Obama summarily dismissed General Stanley McChrystal, the commander of Nato operations in Afghanistan, after some of his officers were said to have made disparaging remarks about White House officials, even though none of the comments was attributed directly to Gen McChrystal himself.

Even Gen Sir Peter Wall, the head of the Army, might have been considered to be pushing the bounds of legitimate criticism of policy in his interview for last night’s BBC Two programme Afghanistan: War Without End?, in which he took issue with Mr Cameron’s “deadline” for British combat operations to end in 2014.

Yet however unhelpful they were, Sir Peter’s comments reflect the views of many on both sides of the Atlantic – including Gen David Petraeus, Gen McChrystal’s successor in Afghanistan – that a premature withdrawal could undermine the effectiveness of the counter-insurgency strategy to defeat the Taliban.

The real problem is that, as with so much else, our leaders seem more concerned with pursuing their own political agendas than heeding the advice of the professionals. Mr Obama, who last night announced the first stage of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, has already launched his campaign for re-election, and is keen to distance himself from a war that no longer appeals to most American voters.

Even though Mr Cameron will, in all probability, not need to seek re-election until 2015, he holds a similar view. While the draw-down in British forces is more modest – totalling a few hundred – he shares Mr Obama’s enthusiasm for leaving Afghanistan at the earliest opportunity rather than waiting, as Sir Peter suggests, for a Taliban defeat and restored peace.

In Britain, the strain between politicians and military created by such differences of opinion has been exacerbated by the cuts to the defence budget imposed after last year’s Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) – and by the Government’s decision, soon after the cuts began to be implemented, to launch an offensive against Libya.

As with the SDSR, where the Government ignored repeated warnings, from senior officers, that the cuts would severely limit Britain’s ability to conduct military operations overseas, Mr Cameron overruled the advice of the Service chiefs that it would be foolhardy to embark on a course of regime change in Libya without the necessary military means to achieve it.

One has only to look at the current stalemate to see which side had the right idea – and the fact that two senior members of the military establishment have now made their reservations public will scarcely have improved the Prime Minister’s mood.

So far as the military is concerned, Afghanistan, not Libya, should be the nation’s overwhelming priority, since the Islamist terrorists operating from the lawless border area between Afghanistan and Pakistan pose a far greater threat to our national security than Libya.

Consequently, the Government’s preoccupation with the campaign against Gaddafi is seen as an unwelcome diversion. Indeed, Mr Cameron’s disinclination to invest the same amount of energy in Afghanistan prompted one senior officer to remark recently: “Even Gordon Brown was better than this lot!”

That is overstating the case, to say the least. When Mr Brown was prime minister, his unwillingness to discuss military issues, or explain his strategy, was such that senior officers were obliged to sneak out to meet ministers in London clubs in order to work out what the latest thinking was. Nothing can be as bad as that – but the fact that officers are even making the comparison suggests that a serious breakdown has occurred in relations between the military and political establishments.

All the more reason, then, for the Prime Minister, rather than scolding his Service chiefs in public, to sit down with them and thrash out their differences. The defence of the realm is far too important an issue to be consumed by this kind of in-fighting.

A government minister believes a combination of political correctness and racial sensitivities have kept many cases of child sex grooming "under the radar".

Children's Minister, Tim Loughton, claims that "closed communities" have sometimes hampered investigations into child sexual exploitation.

Mr Loughton made the comments in an interview for the BBC Politics Show in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, which has been investigating claims that girls as young as 12 have been targeted by organised gangs.

Tim Loughton told me: "In many cases we are dealing with some closed communities. Closed in terms of things being able to go on under the radar and away from the public glare."

"I want to send out a message loud and clear that although we have to be aware of certain characteristics of various ethnic communities and be sensitive as to how we deal with them, a BME (Black Minority Ethnic) tag is not an excuse for us not to investigate vigorously any abuse that may be going on."

Earlier this year, the former Home Secretary Jack Straw was criticised after he suggested that some men of Pakistani origin saw white girls as "easy meat".

The Labour peer Lord Ahmed of Rotherham accepts that although only a minority of offenders are Asian, more needs to be done to find out why some Asian men are drawn into a world of depravity.

Lord Ahmed said: "I have been criticised by my own community because I started talking about it. We need to put it into context. Ninety eight per cent of the community are engaged in fantastic work within the UK.

"There is a small minority involved in drug related crime and this heinous crime of messing with young girls is outrageous."

A five month investigation by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is expected to reveal that more British children have been exposed to grooming than police and social services had originally thought.

Webster Tarpley Update


.The CIA’s Fake “Arab Spring” Becoming A Long, Hot Summer Of War

Obama Regime Courts World Conflagration: Imperial Overstretch Threatens as US, NATO Wage Five Wars: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and Yemen – Are Syria, Iran, Lebanon Next?

Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.

June 20, 2011

Washington DC, June 20- With the previously covert US bombing of Yemen out in the open, the Obama administration is now waging illegal wars against at least five countries – Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and Yemen. Given Obama’s absurd and Orwellian theory that acts of war from the air in the sea do not constitute hostilities under the terms of the War Powers Act, this list may be incomplete, and stealth US attacks may be going on elsewhere as well. As spring turns into summer along the banks of the Potomac, there are signs that Obama’s next move may be a trifecta of aggression – an attack on Syria which would also embroil the US in war with Iran and with the Hezbollah forces of Lebanon. Or, the Obama rampage may strike Pakistan. The “Arab Spring” of color revolutions, military coups, and destabilizations is moving inexorably towards a possible world conflagration whose outlines are already visible.

According to military sources speaking on the Alex Jones radio program on June 15, US Special Forces units based at Fort Hood, Texas, have been told to prepare for deployment to Libya no later than July. Also on alert, reportedly for September or October, are the heavy armored units of the First Cavalry Division, currently located in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with other components of the US III Corps at various US bases. Observers point out that US Special Forces have been in Libya since February at the latest. They also note that, while the Libyan destination is highly plausible, some of these units may also find themselves on the way to Yemen, Syria, Iran, or beyond. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry was denouncing the presence of the US Aegis cruiser Monterrey in the Black Sea. The amphibious assault ship USS Bataan and its task force are presently off the coast of Syria. One very plausible explanation for these deployments might be that a US attack on Syria, under the pretext of protecting civilians, is imminent.

On June 19, CNN reported1 a large-scale US Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps military drill, the biggest of its type in history, along much of the American Atlantic coast under the code name of Exercise Mailed Fist, to be conducted from June 19-24. “The exercise is designed to test the capability of every type of Marine Corps aircraft, including MV-22 Ospreys and F/A 18 Hornets, as well as some Navy ships and Air Force planes,” CNN reported. This drill appears designed to train for amphibious landings on the coast of the Mediterranean, as in Libya or Syria.

June-July Turning Point, as in 1848
The US-UK putsch wave of 2011 continues to exhibit similarities to an earlier historical model, the insurrections of 1848 in Europe. The 1848 events started with a revolt in Sicily (not far from Tunisia), and forced the ouster of King Louis Philippe of France in February and of the powerful Austrian Chancellor, Prince Metternich, in March. These insurrections drew on the pent-up tensions accumulated over decades under the post-1815 Holy Alliance system, but they were by and large detonated by the networks of Italian ultra-nationalist firebrand Giuseppe Mazzini, an agent of the British Admiralty. Tides of unrest swept through central Europe.

The turning point came in June-July 1848. When a Czech nationalist insurrection broke out in Prague, it was crushed by the Austrian army of Gen. Windischgrätz after June 12. An attempted coup by the radical working class and city mob of Paris, organized in Louis Blanc’s National Workshops, was defeated by the reactionary Gen. Cavaignac in the June Days – June 24-26, 1848. In northern Italy, the army of the Italian Kingdom of Sardinia – which had declared war2 on Vienna in support of a rebellion in Milan and with the hope of using the upheaval to drive the Austrians out of Italy and thus achieve national unity – was defeated on July 25 by Marshal Radetsky at Custozza. In September and October, Hungarian nationalist radicals under the Mazzini disciple Kossuth set off a civil war with the Croatians, leading to social chaos and (as R. R. Palmer put it), “the war of all against all.” Somewhat later, Russian troops were invited in to put down the Hungarian rebellion. There was a renewed flare-up of insurrectionary activity in the spring of 1849, notably with the creation of Mazzini’s Roman Republic, before the insurrectionary movements subsided during the late summer of 1849, and gave way to a phase of oppression, cynicism, and reaction. It may be useful to keep this time frame in mind as a rough guide to evaluating events today, while of course bearing in mind no mechanistic or cyclical repetition should be anticipated.

Ahmadinejad of Iran to Obama: Only the US Mask Has Changed, Hands Off Syria
On June 8, President Ahmadinejad of Iran warned the US-NATO bloc not to assail Syria: “Syria is a pioneer of resistance. The Syrian government and nation can settle their issues and there is no need for the interference of others,” Ahmadinejad said. He cautioned certain US-led countries in the region to “stop interfering in Syria’s affairs,” and added that Washington will turn against these states immediately after it achieves its objectives in Syria.3 These warnings may be addressed to Jordan, the Iraqi Kurds, or Turkey, whose territories may have been used by CIA/MI-6 networks to smuggle weapons and commandos into Syria to help constitute the armed gangs of the Moslem Brotherhood which have killed 400 Syrian military and security forces so far. “The Americans want to gain popularity among the regional nations through the implementation of this plan and portray themselves as the upholder of people’s rights,” Ahmadinejad went on, and noted that while a new regime took power in the U.S. in 2009, the nature of the ruling system has not changed: “Only the masks have changed. Campaign against terrorism was the mask of the previous U.S. administration, but the mask of the current administration is supporting human rights.”4 More recently, the Iranian Foreign Ministry and leading Iranian generals have issued stern warnings against any aggression at the expense of Syria, which they evidently would regard as casus belli. Increased attacks on US forces by Shiite militias in Iraq in recent weeks may be a token of Tehran’s alarm over the possible loss of its main ally.

“Gay Girl in Damascus” a US Hoax – Like So Many Reports on Syria and Libya?
On June 14, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued an unusual dual condemnation of both Damascus and Tehran, repeating the US line that Iran is assisting in the repression of Syrian protests. “Today in Syria, Iran is supporting the Assad regime’s vicious assaults on peaceful protesters and military actions against its own cities,” said Clinton. Back in the real world, suspicions were growing up that much media reporting concerning events in Syria represented pure fiction in the tradition of the Kuwait incubator babies and Jessica Lynch: the much-touted “Gay Girl in Damascus” blog, which had been cited as a primary source of information about Syria by mainstream news media across the western world, was exposed as a total hoax. This hoax was the handiwork of Tom McMaster, a 40-year-old American man, and his wife Britta Froelicher, an activist with the American Friends Service Committee, an organization linked to the US intelligence community since the Cold War. How many of the films, photos, and interviews broadcast and posted about supposed war crimes in Libya, Syria, and other countries have also been invented out of whole cloth by this CIA cottage industry of disinformation and black propaganda? How much of the social media hype associated with the “Arab Spring” derives from the trolls at US Cyber Command?

Egypt’s Asterisk Revolution: Run by Samantha Power and McFaul From the White House
The “Gay Girl in Damascus” stunt may be seen in retrospect as a microcosm of the entire “Arab Spring”: a cynical manipulation of idealistic (or nihilistic) young dupes under the aegis of US-designed color revolutions and people power coups, playing these affluent computer-oriented young people against the fragile structures of the modern state under conditions of world economic depression. But even so, the activities of the golden youth in the public squares have been largely a media spectacle, a diversion, a smokescreen. Street demonstrations do not amount to a struggle for power. The overthrow of governments has been accomplished behind the scenes by generals and government officials who have been bribed, blackmailed, and otherwise subverted into mounting putsches sponsored by CIA/MI-6/DGSE. In Tunisia this worked well, with Ben Ali fleeing the country when the general staff made clear that they had turned against him. In Egypt, the procedure finally ousted Mubarak, but with much greater difficulty. US assets like Tantawi and Enan proved unable to drive out the Rais until the Obama White House made some heavy-duty threats of direct US action, the exact nature of which has yet to be determined, but which may have involved the menace of US action against the Suez Canal.

As US Egyptian asset Saad Eddin Ibrahim told Lally Weymoth of the Washington Post: “The Egyptian chief of staff [Tantawi] on orders from the White House was escalating the pressure. President Obama’s advisers, who are good friends — Samantha Power and Michael McFaul — asked me to come [to Washington]. They relied on me as a source. . . . After Mubarak’s second speech, Obama became convinced [that Mubarak had to go].”5 Nationalist colonels in the Egyptian Army may be interested to know that their supreme commander, now the virtual dictator of Egypt, acted on orders from the likes of McFaul and Power, who control the “democratic” opposition as well.

In Libya, the color revolution has worked far less well, as armed al Qaeda gangs have been unable to conquer the loyalist stronghold of Tripoli, and are also having trouble subduing loyalists in the Benghazi-Darna-Tobruk corridor. In Syria, the color revolution model has not worked at all, since the middle class is not interested in undergoing a total Iraq-style bloodbath and Moslem Brotherhood reign of terror for the sake of some vapid slogans about democracy. In Algeria, where the population has immediate experience of the nightmarish slaughter wrought by the Groupe Islamique Armé (GIA) a few years back, no appetite whatever for new adventures has been observed. Al Jazeera has now shifted target to destabilize Morocco, and we will see how that turns out. The destabilization of Jordan has gone nowhere.

An attack on Syria could come soon. “It has gotten to the point where Qaddafi’s behavior and Assad’s behavior are indistinguishable,” commented warmonger GOP Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who noted “You need to put on the table all options, including a model like we have in Libya.”6 This meant a much wider war.

Yemen: Government of Wounded President Saleh Crumbles, US Drone Strikes Begin
Yemen’s President Saleh was seriously wounded on June 3 when rockets allegedly fired by insurgent tribesmen struck his palace. Saleh was flown to Saudi Arabia the next day for emergency treatment. While Saleh’s relatives and allies tried to hold onto power, the Pentagon exploited the resulting power vacuum to begin large-scale Predator drone attacks in the country. It was revealed that the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and the CIA were operating out of a headquarters in Sanaa, and that the CIA would soon begin a wide-ranging program of Predator drone assassinations outside of any rules of military engagement. There were also reports that the US was building a large Predator drone base for operations in Yemen. In the meantime, Islamic militants of the Ansar al-Sharia group, equated by the US media to “al Qaeda,” seized parts of a provincial capital in southern Yemen. It should be remembered that the two leading spokesman for “Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula” (“AQAP”) are US citizen Anwar Awlaki and Guantanamo alumnus al-Shiri, both obvious US double agents. The purpose of the entire Yemen destabilization is to open an avenue of attack against Saudi Arabia, Yemen’s immediate neighbor.

US Strike Against Pakistan Nukes On Front Burner
On June 17, Pakistan said “NATO aircraft attacked one of its military posts in the northwest near the Afghan border and it had expressed its serious concern to the U.S. embassy in Islamabad…. The Pakistani Foreign Ministry said NATO aircraft intruded around 2.5 km (1.5 miles) inside Pakistani territory” to make the attack.7 These probes by NATO aggressors along Pakistan’s border are now a frequent occurrence, and threaten to break out in an open, shooting war – all the more so since any one of these raids could represent a US attempt to cripple Pakistan’s nuclear deterrent with a conventional first strike below the nuclear threshold. Afghanistan President Karzai has officially announced that peace talks with State Department participation are now going on with Mullah Omar and others leaders of the Afghan Taliban. These talks have nothing to do with peace; they rather represent a US attempt to recruit the Afghan and other Taliban and Pushtuns generally as kamikaze puppets to be launched against Pakistan in military attacks.

Certain parts of the US media – particularly the ones addressed to policy elites — have mounted a sustained campaign of demonization against Pakistan. Here are some recent samples of top front-page headlines from the Washington Post:

May 28: “Infiltrators worry Pakistani military; ‘We are under attack’; US unsure of army’s commitment to purging ranks”
May 30: “In Afghan war, Haqqani group is ‘resilient’ foe; Operations based in Pakistan; Network is seen as least reconcilable insurgent faction”
June 11: “Thwarted raids add to tension with Pakistan; US shared intelligence; Bomb-making sites were later found vacant”
June 16: “Pakistan Relations Reach a new low; security ties fraying; Anti-US sentiment in Pakistani army on rise”

Iran’s Ahmadinejad was also taking seriously the spate of media reports about a coming US attack on Pakistan’s nuclear forces. “We have precise information that America wants to sabotage Pakistan’s nuclear facilities in order to control Pakistan and to weaken the government and the people of Pakistan,” he said on June 6. The U.S. is also seeking to “use the United Nations Security Council and some other international organizations as a lever to pave the way for its increased presence in Pakistan with the aim of undermining Pakistan’s national sovereignty,” said the Iranian President.8 The Pakistani government has requested that Iran share with them the detailed intelligence that was the basis for this report.

The Pakistan nukes scenario was the centerpiece of a widely noticed study entitled “Terrorist Tactics in Pakistan Threaten Nuclear Weapons Safety,” by British academic Shaun Gregory, published on June 1 in the CTC Sentinel, the house organ of the Combating Terrorism Center of the US Military Academy at West Point, NY. Gregory’s thesis is that Pakistan, now equipped with over 100 nuclear weapons, will not be able to defend all of them against a determined terrorist attack. He estimates that some 70,000 Pakistanis are now involved in the nation’s nuclear program, and that terrorists would inevitably be able to infiltrate and subvert some of this personnel, including by recruiting rogue commanders of the tactical or battlefield nuclear weapons which Pakistan is currently deploying to guard against an attack by India. Gregory also asserts that it would be enough for terrorists to get possession of fissile materials that would allow the construction of a dirty bomb. Even a failed attack on a nuclear site would cause world hysteria: “The successful location and penetration of such a site by terrorists, even if they were ultimately unsuccessful in accessing nuclear assets, would itself be a transformative event both in terms of the U.S.-Pakistani nuclear relationship and in terms of international anxiety about the security of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons,” writes Gregory.9

Reuters commented: “It’s a nightmare scenario: al Qaeda militants gain control of a Pakistani nuclear weapon, either through a base assault, theft or a rogue commander’s cooperation, possibly in the event of hostilities with nuclear-armed neighbor India.10 The Pakistanis were on full alert: “We know that the ultimate objective of the United States here is not to get a piece of land but to target our nuclear facilities….” said a Pakistani source quoted by Ansar Abbasi in News International on June 9.

US Joint Chiefs of Staff head Admiral Mike Mullen confirmed that this is indeed what the Pentagon has in mind, saying of Pakistan: “It’s a country with an awful lot of terrorists on that border… Things that I fear in the future, it’s the proliferation of that [nuclear] technology, and it’s the opportunity and the potential that it could fall into the hands of terrorists, many of whom are alive and well and seek that in that region.”

As if to provide a suitable pretext for such an attack, the US media has been trumpeting the alleged selection of notorious MI-6 asset Ayman al-Zawahiri as Bin Laden’s successor as top dog of “al Qaeda.” Zawahiri has allegedly sworn to avenge the death of Bin Laden, meaning that the door to new false flag terror events is wide open. This coverage was accompanied by the assurance that Zawahiri’s home base was nowhere else but Pakistan. Mullen immediately proclaimed that Zawahiri would soon meet the same fate as his predecessor, meaning that the US is determined to carry out more unilateral attacks on Pakistani territory, despite the virtual certainty that these will meet with Pakistani countermeasures. Pakistan’s Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik “has said that a foreign hand is involved in terror incidents in Pakistan,” and called for national unity against terrorists in “the fight for our survival.”11

The other main US goal is to block the creation of the Pakistan energy corridor, the fabled Pipelinestan. These projects involve oil and gas pipelines from Iran to China and India, all crossing through Pakistan. The US and UK are determined to block such peaceful infrastructure development, which would give all these countries a rational common economic interest. One key part of the Pakistan energy corridor has been halted; on June, IANS reported that “the proposed Pakistan-Iran gas pipeline has run into delays as Islamabad has failed to raise the necessary funds…. Pakistani officials have told their Iranian counterparts that the pipeline was unlikely to be completed by the scheduled deadline of December 2014, the Urdu daily Jang reported. According to reliable sources, Pakistan has neither been able to raise the necessary $1.24 billion funding nor plan out the proposed route for the pipeline within its territory.”12

An Anti-US Coup d’État by Nationalist Colonels in Islamabad?
On June 15, the New York Times and Washington Post both published front-page articles highlighting the rapid growth of anti-American resentment in the Pakistani officer corps. The New York Times wrote that many military officers were so disgusted by the servility of army chief Kayani towards Washington that “a colonels’ coup, while unlikely, was not out of the question,” according to “a well-informed Pakistani who has seen the general in recent weeks, as well as an American military official involved with Pakistan for many years.”13

The neocon National Review, genuinely alarmed by the prospect of a new generation of modernizing military officers in the great tradition of Colonel Nasser of Egypt, spun out some grim scenarios and asked, “would the outcome of a break between America and Pakistan be war–whether low-level or outright?”14 In reality, a regime of progressive colonels might provide a better outcome than Islamic fundamentalists not just for Pakistan, but also for Egypt.

Panetta’s New Pearl Harbor of Virtual Flag Cyber-Attacks
Islamabad continues to enjoy support from China, which pledged a month ago to regard any attack on Pakistan as an attack on the Middle Kingdom itself. China has military options for retaliation, ranging from ICBMs to sensitive points like the Taiwan Straits, but these are less likely. China could also express displeasure by divesting some U.S. Treasury bonds. More likely might be operations in the cyber-realm. US sources allege that Lockheed Martin, the CIA, and other websites are under cyber assault, and some commentators have tried to pin this on China. CIA Director Panetta, now moving over to the Pentagon, told a Senate Committee, “The next Pearl Harbor we confront could very well be a cyber attack that cripples our power systems, our grid, our security systems, our financial systems, our governmental systems.”15 Since no known cyber-attack has thus far been able to create such devastating effects, we may assume that Panetta is preparing the way for virtual flag terrorism, in which the US government would simply assert that some catastrophic event had been caused by a country it wishes to target. In a possibly related development, German attorney Thorsten van Geest is in court seeking a temporary restraining order against the Merkel government to shut down all anti-terror drills around at the June 26 opening of the World the Women’s Soccer Championship in Berlin, citing the danger that these exercises might be flipped live.

Saudi Arabia Signals Break from Washington
Saudi Arabia is known to be seeking cooperation with Pakistan and with other countries as part of its attempted exit from the collapsing US empire. Prince Turki al-Faisal, a leading figure of the royal family, signaled Riyadh’s broad-based rage against Washington with a June 7 op-ed warning Obama that “there will be disastrous consequences for U.S.-Saudi relations if the United States vetoes UN recognition of a Palestinian state.” Turki concluded with a threat: “We Arabs used to say no to peace, and we got our comeuppance in 1967 [with a crushing military defeat] …. Now, it is the Israelis who are saying no. I’d hate to be around when they face their comeuppance.”16 These blunt words, which reflect a Saudi hostility to the Obama regime that goes beyond the Palestinian issue to include the whole range of national strategy, has caused shock behind closed doors in official Washington.

The March visit of Saudi Prince Bandar to Pakistan is widely regarded as having sealed a defensive alliance between these two powers, which may be regarded (along with Egypt) as regional pillars of the US empire. Both are seeking to exit the empire. Pakistan is thought to have guaranteed the Saudis protection under Islamabad’s nuclear umbrella, as well as a division or more of Pakistani troops to quell any color revolution or other destabilization the CIA might attempt. A possible signal of US rage over this cooperation came on May 16, when “motorcycle-riding assassins gunned down a Saudi diplomat in the Pakistani city of Karachi, four days after a grenade attack on the Saudi consulate there.”17

NATO Facing Logistical Overstretch in Libya
Resistance by Colonel Qaddafi of Libya against the attacking US-NATO forces has exposed the grave logistical and political weakness of the supposedly omnipotent Western alliance. A US military source speaking on the Alex Jones broadcast reported that US stocks of depleted uranium (DU) munitions are currently very low. This may be the reality behind outgoing Defense Secretary Gates’ complaint last week that NATO is running out of bombs in Libya, and similar remarks by French NATO General Stephane Abrial in Belgrade. The US still has some stocks, but how long would these last against Syria, Hezbollah, and Iran?

Obama is Impeachment Bait for Violating the War Powers Act
At a recent Republican presidential debate, candidates Bachman, Gingrich, and Cain hinted that the Libyan rebels include al Qaeda terrorists. Obama’s arrogant and cynical management of the attack on Libya has raised the possibility of congressional action to cut off funds for the war. The Republican fanatics of the Tea Party are seeking to force the US government to default on Treasury securities payments as a way of destroying Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment benefits, and other economic rights of the American people recognized under the New Deal. However, it is possible that the zombie bankers and hedge fund hyenas of Wall Street who fund and generally own the Republican Party will use threats and bribes to force these Tea Party extremists to knuckle under and increase the debt ceiling over the next month. That will leave the Tea Party fanatics in desperate need of an issue they can use to make a loud show of hostility to Obama to placate their extremist supporters, and that issue may be the aggression against Libya, which has become thoroughly unpopular despite Obama’s attempts to conceal that it is going on.

Libya: A War Too Far, even for GOP
The House of Representatives has voted to demand that Obama seek congressional approval for his stealth Libya war. Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich and others are suing Obama in federal court to force him to get such approval. Speaker of the House John Boehner has warned Obama that, if he does not come to Congress for approval by June 20, he will be in violation of the War Powers Act. Senators like Lugar, Corker, and Webb have also called on Obama to get a congressional resolution to prosecute hostilities. It has also been revealed that Obama was told by lawyers from the Department of Justice and the Pentagon that the Libyan war was indeed covered by the War Powers Act, but that Obama chose to endorse legal opinions from White House and State Department lawyers telling him he did not need to get any go-ahead from Congress. Naturally, Obama’s flagrant violation of the War Powers Act in Libya would make him subject to impeachment, and this possibility might become more likely if the US economy continues to deteriorate. Another approach would be for Congress to cut off the money for the Libyan aggression. Usually, such a move would be blocked with the argument that US troops would be left stranded in harm’s way. But in this case, by Obama’s own assurances, no US ground troops are officially involved (although they are already there nonetheless). Since Obama claims that only air and naval attacks are being mounted, it may prove easier to cut off the funding and end the illegal attacks on Libya.

As Chinese political scientist Kiyul Chung told RT on June 16, the world was at an historic crossroads, on the brink of deciding whether US and NATO military interventions on the Libyan model would subdue the entire world, or whether Russia, China, and other participants in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization would be able to create a worldwide movement to counterbalance the “unilateral, aggressive, and colonial” methods of the NATO bloc.

2 King Carlo Alberto of Sardinia declared war on Austria on March 23, 1848. He was joined by a coalition which included the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, the Papal States under Pope Pius IX, and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. This marked the first transformation of the domestic insurrections of 1848 into cross-border wars. There is an eerie congruence between this event and the initiation of the NATO bombing of Libya on March 19, 2011.

The Crash

Why does Britain tolerate its leaders?
The power of lies, deception and self-delusion
By Christopher King

19 June 2011

Christopher King considers the bubble of deception and lies that underpins the British political establishment and the ignorance and self-delusion that sustain public support for this establishment.

”My friends, you have not yet recognized that we are at war within our country. We are living on capital, on the fat accumulated by past generations of inventors, builders and social reformers. It will soon be gone and our war will become exactly like those of Tunisia, Egypt or Syria. Perhaps like Afghanistan. You don’t believe it? Just look at the speed of collapse in Greece.” (Christopher King)

My family has an investment in Libya. It is a small plot of land in the Knightsbridge War Cemetery at Acroma, eastern Libya, where my uncle, my father’s brother, is buried. He died fighting Rommel’s forces in World War II and left a young wife. My grandmother mourned him, her youngest son, for the rest of her life. You might say that my father was more fortunate. Although he was captured by the Japanese when Singapore fell due to British military incompetence, he survived his period as a prisoner of war.

You might think that my parents were able to take up their lives where they left off. That was not the case. Warfare, it seems, changes people. Suffice to say that the war destroyed our family.

“...our public is afraid of the truth which is in plain sight. We are witnessing the triumph of illusion over reality; of lies over truth; of hope over the death of our economy.”

That is why I despise the warmongers Barack Obama, George Bush, Anthony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron along with the Gaddafis and Saddams – men who enrich themselves and advance their interests in others’ blood and suffering. Nor do I exclude the British Chiefs of Defence Staff who wring their hands in mock sorrow at the deaths of their men. If they had a scrap of courage themselves they would cite the Nuremberg Principles and bring their men home. These people are all the same. Every country has them – failures as moral humans. Why do we tolerate them?

It is a mystery to me why anyone voted a second term for Anthony Blair after he had hawked the Americans’ Iraq invasion around Europe. Our public next voted him in for a third term! David Cameron, Gordon Brown and Nick Clegg all stood on a pro-war platform. Everyone voted for them as if it were the most natural thing in the world for these men to conspire to invade other countries, bomb and shoot their inhabitants and assassinate them with drones. It can be no surprise that our politicians are engaged in yet another American war in Libya.

The British public accepts being led by men who prefer war to peace, to being robbed by their paymasters, the bankers, American and British, rather than controlling our own money and to being parasitized by America rather than ruling ourselves. There can be only one explanation: our public is afraid of the truth which is in plain sight. We are witnessing the triumph of illusion over reality; of lies over truth; of hope over the death of our economy. Yes, of evil over good. When tens, even hundreds of thousands of men, women and children have been killed in ten years of warfare, something is very wrong. Someone is doing something very bad. The simple, even trivial explanation: our public does not want to hear the bad news.

The bad news is that the consumer dream of infinite growth and never-ending plenty is at an end. The country’s economic trend is now downward. Our political and business leaders are engaged in a desperate conspiracy to conceal this trend to general poverty while ensuring that they and their families live in luxury. Anthony Blair, the bought-and-paid-for multi-millionaire is the model. He and his family live well at the cost of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives and Afghan lives.

The good news? I shall have to think about it.

“One day soon, perhaps seven or 10 years time, the British public will awaken cold, hungry, with children badly clothed, food and energy in short supply, bank accounts empty, debts unpaid, jobs impossible to find, social security non-existent. “How has this happened?” will be the cry.”

Our public clearly believes that our leaders and bankers are capable, responsible men. They know more than us, they must know what they are doing! And it is true.

They are indeed responsible men: our politicians are responsible to their banker and industrialist paymasters, our bankers to their co-conspirators. They do know more than we do – and ensure that we do not find our what they know by using the Official Secrets Act, invoking commercial confidence and a hundred tricks and evasions in and out of the courts and Parliament. And they know what they are doing very well – robbing us as ruthlessly as any Mubarak or Gaddafi.

One day soon, perhaps seven or 10 years time, the British public will awaken cold, hungry, with children badly clothed, food and energy in short supply, bank accounts empty, debts unpaid, jobs impossible to find, social security non-existent. “How has this happened?” will be the cry. “Where is the economic recovery?” My friends, the economic recovery will exist only in politicians’ mouths, in the pages of the Murdoch press and, of course, in banking inventions.

One of the best of men, Brian Haw, has lived in a tent in Parliament Square, protesting our wars for the last 10 years. It is no coincidence that those who have the fewest possessions see reality most clearly. That is why Jesus said (Mark 10:25) that a rich man will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. It is always a matter of money. Wars are for money and those who kill foreigners to steal their resources will hardly shrink from killing their own countrymen to add to and preserve their wealth.

Why should anyone imagine that our prime minister and his deputy are any more virtuous than Saddam, Mubarak or Gaddafi when all the evidence is against it? Public illusion is possible because we are still able to live on the capital that past generations built up in this country. It will not last long in competition with over two and a half billion persons in China and India alone, whose ambition is to achieve our living standards and whose current income averages about GBP 50 to 60 per month. Note: averages. Hundreds of millions have no measurable income. These are not merely statistics. They are part of the dynamics of global production and markets.

“It is not our corrupt politicians who act in the best interests of our people and our country. It is the Julian Assanges and Brian Haws. They are the prophets of our time and the rich Great and Good hate them.”

It is not our corrupt politicians who act in the best interests of our people and our country. It is the Julian Assanges and Brian Haws. They are the prophets of our time and the rich Great and Good hate them. We should be flocking to support our prophets in our own best interests and it is precisely because they speak for our best interests that they are hated.

We have several generations who think that war is a sort of movie or computer game. Soldiers’ families are shocked and surprised when their sons and husbands are killed. It’s not supposed to happen. They seek explanations. The explanation is that their loved ones have died to ensure that America’s rich get richer and to allow our bankers and big businessmen to pick over their garbage. That is what our country has come to.

My friends, you have not yet recognized that we are at war within our country. We are living on capital, on the fat accumulated by past generations of inventors, builders and social reformers. It will soon be gone and our war will become exactly like those of Tunisia, Egypt or Syria. Perhaps like Afghanistan. You don’t believe it? Just look at the speed of collapse in Greece.

The first steps in commencing rebuilding our country and re-establishing an independent, self-reliant Britain are:

•Abandon the American wars that we are engaged in
•Get rid of all American bases in this country
•Leave NATO, abandon US military purchases, join a European defence force.
The first steps in commencing an economic recovery are:

•Stop the sale of publicly owned banking assets.

•Mutualize all publicly owned banking assets

•Cease government guarantees of deposits with the private sector banks

•Give government guarantees only to deposits with cooperative or mutual banks

•Cease giving private banks access to Bank of England funds

•Channel Bank of England funds exclusively through mutualized banks

•Investigate the HSBC takeover of the Midland bank in relation to an alleged one million pounds donation to the Conservative Party from the Chinese government
representative on the board and if corruption is confirmed, to nationalize equivalent HSBC assets.

The chancellor of the exchequer, George Osborne, has announced that he will “ring fence” the banks’ domestic banking sections and guarantee their deposits. This minimal, token gesture, originating from the Vickers-chaired Treasury Select Committee, is hailed as protecting the economy by our chancellor. The chancellor and this committee are not concerned with the national economy. They are concerned about preserving the wealth and privilege of their banker friends and themselves.

The threats to individual and national wealth posed by the greedy banks are undiminished. The media are already predicting that the banks will recover their profits from increased banking charges. It is not a matter of painting the banks a different colour. They crashed the economy and have been robbing us ever since.

The present banking system gives private sector bankers access to government Bank of England funds, government guarantees of their deposits and government bailouts of their losses. This system is an outrage. It needs complete replacement.

My father kept himself alive in a Japanese prison camp and his brother died in fighting wars that they believed were for their families, their countries and for a good cause. It was not for these despicable, disgusting liars who are robbing their own people and murdering foreigners by the hundreds of thousands for obscene wealth and insane American world-dominance fantasies backed by threats of nuclear holocaust. This is what truth looks like. I suspect that the British public will have to experience some “Third World” poverty in order to see it clearly.

The Firestorm


If you are a globalist, or a group that promotes the ascendancy of the globalist philosophy, then you are not concerned with the survival of any one particular nation state, even if it’s the U.S. Instead, you are highly concerned and perhaps even addicted to the idea of “centralization”; the process of dissolving borders and cultures and placing them under the control of a single economic system and a single governing body. As a globalist, you have no sense of loyalty to any country, nor any body of law, nor any Constitution. You will sacrifice anything and anyone to achieve full spectrum dominance. Motivations vary, but trying to understand the vicious tendencies of a dedicated globalist is like trying to understand the vicious tendencies of a serial killer; you’re never going to get an answer that fully untwists their warped intentions into something that “satisfies” our need for truth and closure. That said, there is a method to the madness of globalization, and it is quite clearly present in the Middle East.

The two most stubborn and immovable obstacles to total globalism today are; the American people, many of whom have been spoiled, intellectually lobotomized, and politically castrated. However, our heritage of freedom and revolution in the face of tremendous adversity still carries on, and our will to fight back against an “invincible” opponent has not disappeared, but only fallen into dormancy. In fact, we sometimes crave such a fight. We have put down the forces of centralization before, and we would love to do it again Heritage is a very powerful thing, and the Founding Fathers left us with a spectacular foundation on which to rely. On top of this, we are one of the few countries that still promote an armed population.

Second, are the cultures of the Middle East, specifically Muslims, who are religiously bound to reject all forms of what they call “Usury” (lending and debt as the basis for a business model or economy). This does not necessarily stop predominantly Muslim countries from participating in usury, many do. But, the idea of an entire country becoming indebted and thus controlled by an unaccountable corporate body like the IMF is highly distasteful to Islamic Fundamentalists, and would no doubt lead to all out war, even against their own governments (which is in some cases occurring today). Globalism is entirely dependent on the generation of debt as an instrument for social control. The majority of Muslims will simply not go along peacefully, and as in America, the Middle East is awash in armaments.
So, if you are a corporate banking globalist with visions of Utopia dancing in your head, what do you do? You can try to confront the American people and Islamic culture separately, or, you can pit your two biggest frustrations against each other in a brutal deathmatch while you lounge in your wicker easy chair and sip tropical drinks.

I think Sun Tzu would choose the latter strategy...

What we are faced with is a ‘chain reaction’ scenario; the more committed we become in the Middle East, the more likely the nexus of conflicts will interact and enflame new and even more tragic wars to which we are yet again drawn in. We might despise the activities of desert dictators, but we must also keep in mind that there is a greater game afoot. Small wars are often exploited by proponents of globalism to catalyze greater crisis and herd the masses towards a new socio-political construct that is not to our benefit. Every Liberal especially should question the moral validity of Obama’s unflinching continuation of Bush’s foreign and domestic policy (where are the war protests, Democrats?). Every Conservative should question the costly economic and tactical rationale for expanded conflict and a substantially weakened America. Each side should wake the hell up and realize that neither party has acted according to the voice of the people, but rather, the voice of an elite minority whose intentions are anything but honorable.

If we do not act now to stop the expansion of American military operations in the Middle East, we will soon be forced to bear witness to the swift and resolute financial collapse of this nation and a complete shift in paradigm that will result in global warfare. Set aside the obvious threats of OPEC decoupling from the dollar, and the inevitable explosion in gasoline prices. Consider also the potential for a confrontation so staggering, that no one, save globalists, comes out whole. There is no victory in such a war. There are only victims many, and beneficiaries few.

The Missile Connection


TAOS, N.M., June 20, 2011

TAOS, N.M., June 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --

On October 23, 2010, F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming temporarily lost the ability to communicate with 50 of its Minuteman III missiles. The five Missile Alert Facilities responsible for launching those ICBMs—Alpha through Echo, comprising the 319th Strategic Missile Squadron—would have been unable to do so during the period of the disruption.

This dramatic story was leaked to Mark Ambinder, a contributing editor at The Atlantic, which published it three days later. The U.S. Air Force then quickly acknowledged the problem, saying that a back-up launch system could have performed the task and claiming that the breakdown had lasted a mere 59 minutes.

However, the latter statement was untrue, according to two missile technicians stationed at F.E. Warren, who say that the communications issue, while intermittent, actually persisted over several hours.

Significantly, these same individuals report sightings by "numerous teams" of an enormous, cigar-shaped craft that maneuvered high above the missile field on the day of the disruption. The huge UFO appeared similar to a World War I German Zeppelin but had no passenger gondola or advertising on its hull, as would a commercial blimp.

The confidential Air Force sources also report that their squadron commander has warned witnesses not to talk to journalists or researchers about "the things they may or may not have seen" in the sky and has threatened severe penalties for anyone violating security. Consequently, these persons must remain anonymous at this time.

The disquieting information was provided to noted researcher and author Robert Hastings who, over the past seven months, has interviewed law enforcement and civilian eyewitnesses to ongoing UFO activity near F.E. Warren's ICBM sites between September 2010 and April 2011. Hastings has just published a detailed exposé on these developments titled, "Huge UFO Sighted Near Nuclear Missiles During October 2010 Launch System Disruption," which may be read at:


(The article can also be located at The UFO Chronicles homepage by placing its title in the Google "Site Search" box.)

The October 23rd missile incident occurred less than a month after Hastings' September 27, 2010 UFO-Nukes Connection press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., during which seven U.S. Air Force veterans discussed UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites during the Cold War era. CNN streamed that event live; a full-length video is at:


According to the veterans, including two retired colonels, the still-classified incidents involved the sudden appearance of a mysterious aerial craft that briefly hovered over ICBM sites and sometimes disrupted the missiles' guidance and control systems; during one December 1980 case, a disc-shaped UFO sent down laser-like beams into a nukes storage depot.

The witnesses said that they felt compelled to speak out about the reality of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites and urged the U.S. government to finally reveal the facts to the American people.

Regarding the recent situation at F.E. Warren AFB, Hastings emphasizes, "My sources have not said that the UFO sighted during the October 23, 2010 missile-communications disruption actually caused it. And it must be noted that the Air Force's Global Strike Command has officially attributed the problem to an improperly-replaced circuit card in a weapons-system processor."

He adds, "Nevertheless, the intermittent presence of a huge, cigar-shaped aerial craft during the hours-long—not minutes-long—crisis was definitely noted and remarked upon by various technical teams working in the base's missile field."

Hastings concludes, "The UFO sightings near F.E. Warren's missile sites in recent months—by Air Force personnel and civilians—represent the latest chapter in the UFO-Nukes Connection saga. Its well-documented history, as revealed in declassified U.S. government files and military eyewitness testimony, extends back to December 1948. Countless official denials about the reality of the situation have been issued over the years but, sooner or later, this amazing story will break wide open. What we need now is a courageous government whistleblower to come forward with the facts, and some daring journalists willing to treat the story seriously and write about it."

The Coming Idiocracy


Ignoramuses will lead us

"Is our children learning?" as George W. Bush so famously asked. Well, no, they is not learning, especially the history of their country, the school subject at which America's young perform at their worst.

On history tests given to 31,000 pupils by the National Assessment of Education Progress, the "Nation's Report Card," most fourth-graders could not identify a picture of Abraham Lincoln or a reason why he was important.

Most eighth-graders could not identify an advantage American forces had in the Revolutionary War. Twelfth-graders did not know why America entered World War II or that China was North Korea's ally in the Korean War.

Only 20 percent of fourth-graders attained even a "proficient" score in the test. By eighth grade, only 17 percent were judged proficient. By 12th grade, 12 percent. Only a tiny fraction was graded "advanced," indicating a superior knowledge of American history.

Given an excerpt from the Supreme Court's 1954 decision Brown v. Board of Education – "We conclude that in the field of public education, separate but equal has no place, separate education facilities are inherently unequal" – and asked what social problem the court was seeking to correct, 2 percent of high-school seniors answered "segregation."

Get Pat Buchanan's classic, "The Death of the West," autographed at low price

As these were multiple-choice questions, notes Diane Ravitch, the education historian, the answer "was right in front of them."

A poster put out by the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies, circa 1940, was shown and the question asked, "The poster above seeks to protect America and aid Britain in the struggle against ..." Four countries were listed as possible answers.

A majority did not identify Germany, though the poster contained a clue. The boot about to trample the Statue of Liberty had a huge swastika on the sole.

"We're raising young people who are, by and large, historically illiterate," historian David McCullough told the Wall Street Journal.

"History textbooks," added McCullough, "are "badly written." Many texts have been made "so politically correct as to be comic. Very minor characters that are currently fashionable are given considerable space, whereas people of major consequence" – such as inventor Thomas Edison – "are given very little space or none at all."

Trendies and minorities have their sensibilities massaged in the new history, which is, says McCullough, "often taught in categories – women's history, African-American history, environmental history – so that many students have no sense of chronology ... no idea of what followed what."

But if the generations coming out of our schools do not know our past, do not who we are or what we have done as a people, how will they come to love America, refute her enemies or lead her confidently?

This appalling ignorance among American young must be laid at the feet of an education industry that has consumed trillions of tax dollars in recent decades.

Comes the retort: History was neglected because Bush, with No Child Left Behind, overemphasized reading and math.

Yet the same day the NAEP history scores were reported, the New York Times reported on the academic performance of New York state high-school students in math and English. The results were stunning.

Of state students who entered ninth grade in 2006, only 37 percent were ready for college by June 2010. In New York City, the figure was 21 percent, one in five, ready for college.

In Yonkers, 14.5 percent of the students who entered high school in 2006 were ready for college in June 2010. In Rochester County, the figure was 6 percent.

And the racial gap, 45 years after the federal and state governments undertook heroic exertions to close it, is wide open across the Empire State.

(Column continues below)

While 51 percent of white freshman in 2006 and 56 percent of Asian students were ready for college in June 2010, only 13 percent of New York state's black students and 15 percent of Hispanics were deemed ready.

The implications of these tests are alarming, not only for New York but for the country we shall become in this century.

In 1960, there were 18 million black Americans and few Hispanics in a total population of 160 million. By 2050, African Americans and Hispanics combined will, at 200 million, roughly equal white Americans in number.

If the racial gap in academic achievement persists for the next 40 years, as it has for the last 40, virtually all of the superior positions in the New Economy and knowledge-based professions will be held by Asians and whites, with blacks and Hispanics largely relegated to the service sector.

America will then face both a racial and class crisis.

The only way to achieve equality of rewards and results then will be via relentless use of the redistributive power of government – steep tax rates on the successful and annual wealth transfers to the less successful. It will be affirmative action, race preferences, ethnic quotas and contract set-asides, ad infinitum – not a prescription for racial peace or social tranquility.
