Operation Gladio

Visible to anyone in the world

At the moment, I am reading Operation Gladio by Paul L Williams. It is about the triumvirate of evil the CIA, the Vatican and the mafia, an unholy trinity if ever there was one. It all began with the formation of the CIA after the Second World War, as part of the west’s drive against communism, allegedly. It is an intense book and contains a lot of information but it is well laid out making it easy to read. It is not a book you will read in a day or two, you need to time to absorb the information and to allow yourself to recover from the horrors contained therein. I am only 100 odd pages in and it makes me despair that the CIA is still allowed to operate and is regarded as a legitimate government organisation. They are nothing less than murderers and drug dealers. It is estimated that over 6 million people have died since the Second World War as a direct result of their activities. It is sickening beyond belief to read how they orchestrated the murder of the Italian Prime Minister, Aldo Moro, for no other reason than he had created a coalition government in Italy and brought the Communists into it. That was in 1978, I think the ‘communist threat’ was well contained by that stage. That evil old troll Henry Kissinger (who in my opinion is evil incarnate and right up there with Stalin and Hitler) had warned Moro, when he had attended a meeting in the US, that his actions would have consequences.

Coincidentally, that fossilised old coffin-dodger is still going, at over 90 years of age, and was at the Bilderberg meeting in Washington last week. Do these people never retire or die?? But then, they do say, only the good die young.

The most sickening thing about Moro’s murder was that the man had done nothing wrong, all he had done was to recognise the support other political groups had and to try and find a working consensus within the government. I remember when he died and the scandals involving the Vatican Bank, even if I didn’t fully understand what was going on. I also remember Roberto Calvi being found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London although, I haven’t got to the details of that yet.

Anyway, the book tells how, after the war, the CIA began anti-communist operations in Europe, through which they helped to empower the Mafia, who were basically on their way out in Italy and, with the collaboration of the Vatican, to launder their drug money, the CIA’s not the mafias, which was/is essentially the same thing. The money from the drugs trade funded their black ops and murderous operations. They started by targeting black jazz musicians with heroin from Asia in the 1950’s and the trade, I’m sure, has evolved since then. I am also sure that it is no coincidence that poor black neighbourhoods in the US, and other socially deprived areas, are flooded with drugs, which is why decent black leaders like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King never survive long enough to really make life better for their communities. I’d like to see Black Lives Matter or Lewis Hamilton take that one on!

As someone who was brought up Catholic, it is beyond anger to read how the Church has been, and still is, (Pope Francis gets several mentions) fully engaged in the corruption that has destroyed millions of lives. How it works is that the CIA infiltrate all the local groups, and opposition, and direct operations to whatever it is they need, or whoever needs to be taken out, keeping their hands clean. They are all tied in with the Mason’s too. David Rockefeller was right there at the beginning and was instrumental in funding them, and is also a major player in the Bilderberg group.

The CIA does not work for the government, they work for the shadow government and corporations.

The entire political network in the world is corrupt and anyone who is not part of it will not last very long, as evidenced by the deaths Malcolm X, Moro and, more recently, President Magufuli of Tanzania, especially when they stand in the way of the shadow world government’s agenda.

I am also really questioning the deaths of John Smith and Robin Cook now. Tony Blair took over Labour after John Smith died suddenly from a heart attack. Robin Cook, who also died suddenly from a heart attack, was an opponent of the Iraq war and was succeeded by Jack Straw, whose name cropped up several times in the book I read about the death of Dr David Kelly and not in a flattering context. Are these all just startling coincidences?

Even Lady Di, in all the talk about what happened when she died, no one ever mentioned the possibility of the arms industry being involved. She had been at the forefront of an anti-landmine campaign and we all know that war is good business for some. Who had the power to turn off all those traffic cameras?

I know I’m making a bit of a leap here but I don’t think any of these things are coincidences, not any more. The depth of political and global corruption has been revealed to us in the last two years with the scamdemic, and it is only now that I can see how widespread it is. These scum have been operating with impunity throughout the world for 70 years, as long as the Queen has been on the throne, their tentacles are everywhere and covered up by governments and the media, who work hand in glove with them. There isn’t an honest broker left. The CIA is basically the largest, most prolific and most murderous terrorist group on earth. All the conflicts of the 20th century since WW2 have their hand in them, they are the terrorists, they are the ones who have orchestrated the coups against democratically elected leaders and started wars to enrich the pockets of the arms industry and other corporations, all paid for by the blood of ordinary people.

It is quite depressing to realise how endemic it all is. I can even see at a local level in my own home town how most of the local politicians are operating to someone else’s agenda. Sinn Fein have been bought off which you can read about in an earlier post. The IRSP are also compromised. The flag of republicanism another flag of convenience and no doubt the loyalist paramilitaries are up to their eyes in it all as well since they are all heavily involved in trafficking drugs.

I always had doubts and questions about the murder of Billy Wright. Now, I’m no fan of Billy’s, he was a murderous thug and I am certainly not here to defend anything he did. He was shot in prison by the INLA. The prison officers who had been on duty in the area were called away and the security cameras were shut off and then a member of the INLA went in and shot him. There is no way they orchestrated that on their own.

The next part of the book is about central and South America. No doubt Allende will come up and I see now why they hated Castro so much. Cuba was one of the main ports for trafficking drugs into mainland USA, stuffed into oranges. Castro put a stop to all that. It was a miracle he survived as long as he did. 

I will also never vote again, I was always a strong advocate for using your vote but I see now it has been nothing less than a complete and total waste of time. From what I can discern, all political parties are two sides of the same coin. Not only that but all it does is legitimise the crooks standing for election, the puppets of the global elite. Never again will I cast a ballot and certainly not as long as the same parties and faces are the only available options. They are all spiders in the web of lies, deceit and corruption, bought and paid for, and I will no longer partake.

The only genuine vote we have had in decades was the Brexit vote, I voted leave and thank God that leave won. But still the globalist’s and their puppets are doing all they can to stop or reverse it. They can’t fully run their agenda without Britain and they can’t have anyone showing independence and upsetting their plans for global domination.

I would strongly recommend everyone read this book, it is absolutely essential if you are to have any understanding of 20th and 21st century politics and how the world is now in the state it is.

The more that people are aware of these groups and their agendas, the easier they are to identify and possibly thwart.

If you want to stick it to the CIA/globalists, stop listening to everything the main stream media says, do your own research, stop voting, if we don’t vote, they don’t get in and maybe then we can change the system, and stop taking drugs, if that is something you do, especially if you are black, your communities are being destroyed by them and it would appear that it is all to a plan. You can’t do anything for anyone, including yourself, if you are off your face on drugs.

Looking back now at the bigger picture, it would seem that the agenda that began against communism changed in the 1960’s. Communism might have been the flag of convenience that started all this but I think the student rebellions and hippie movements of the 1960’s made the ‘elite’ realise that an educated and fully aware/awake population would eventually overthrow them and, since then, they have basically engaged in a war against humanity. As George Carlin said – they want us smart enough to do the work but not smart enough to ask too many questions or think about changing and/or challenging the social order. And with the advent of AI, they may not even need us to do a lot of the menial tasks so I wonder what they plan for us now.

Since the 1960’s education has been dumbed down, we have been fed all the wrong advice on food, health and nutrition which has left us fat, lazy and getting dumber by the day. We need to get the distractions out of our lives if we are to have any hope of creating a decent future for our children and grandchildren, free from the tentacles of the globalists who work against us and are pushing us into technocratic totalitarianism. We also need to start holding them to account and to put legislation in place that will protect the population from these self-appointed, control freaks.

There is a good reason the founding fathers of the US put the second and first amendments in place. It wasn’t to benefit the government but to protect the people from government overreach and that is exactly where we are now. But, at the end of the day, they are still the few and we are the many, the choice is ours.

Eurovision

Visible to anyone in the world

It was a surprise to no one that Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night except maybe Sam Ryder who might have thought he was about to actually win. Hard luck Sam and deepest commiserations, I feel for you!

I don’t believe for a minute Ukraine won, there were many better songs in the contest but to paraphrase Not the 9 O’Clock News, ‘nice propaganda shame about the song’. But in these days of X-Factor style manipulation, CGI, media bias and outright lies who knows what to believe anymore.

And why all the concern for Ukraine? There’s been a war raging in Yemen for years and not a word about it, or anyone from the celebrity circus of the dire and meaningless showing up to support the downtrodden over there. But then it all depends on where the interests of the military/industrial complex lie doesn’t it, and who they own?

Formula 1 cancelled Sochi this year but were happy enough to go to Saudi Arabia, that bastion of freedom and social justice, and Australia, who were only outdone in lockdown tyranny by China. And, again, the silence was deafening from the world of entertainment. Who would have thought that Right Said Fred would have been the most vocal advocates for freedom and at the forefront of the anti-lockdown/mask/forced jab tyranny of the last 2 years? Not a word from Bono, Geldof, Sting, Paul Weller or Bruce Springsteen, all those fake grandstanders for freedom and justice, what a bunch of hypocrites and champagne socialists!

Surely cringiest moment of the year has to be Bono singing ‘Stand by Ukraine’ to the tune of Stand By Me, and in one foul moment desecrating not only one of the great classics of the Motown era but my love for it as well. I’ll never be able to listen to it again without seeing that self-righteous prick squawking along – some things are unforgivable, these people have no shame! Isn’t it strange too that all these celebrities can just pop over for a visit to a deadly war zone and not even a helmet or flak jacket needed for protection?? Hmmm…never a sniper around when you need one!

The sad thing about all this manipulation is that the genuinely talented and deserving get nowhere. Imagine if you were one of the other contestants on Saturday night; you put in all that effort, you possibly wrote the song, like Sam, learned it, practiced it and put yourself forward for selection, worked for months in preparation and, then, propaganda wars takes over and all your effort is rendered meaningless.

The same thing is happening in women’s sport. All those years of training and then some bloke with an overdose of oestrogen and a fake pair of tits comes in and takes it all away. Women’s sport is going to be wiped out because biological women cannot compete against biological male athletes. The physical differences that happen in puberty are irreversible and it is not possible to make a male a female regardless of how many hormones/suppressants they take or what they identify as. See link below.

All this so-called ‘social justice’ has a down side and it started with the ‘everyone’ gets a medal’ that killed off the school sports day. Jordan Peterson, in one of his lectures, talks about killing the spirit of a child and that the quickest way to do it is to put down their behaviour/effort when they are doing well. Isn’t that just what is happening here? Imagine the disappointment the child who was good at sports and who actually won the race must have felt. So what if poor little Johnny cried because he lost! Life is not always about winning and the sooner he learns to cope with loss and failure the better his life will be, a bit of adversity can build character.

Gone are the days when your abilities, skills and talents mattered as you strived for excellence in something. These things don’t matter in the world of social justice, the only thing that matters now is the content of your underwear, or your sexual preferences, or how many boxes you can tick for the neo-liberal fascist brigade. As noted in Jen Psaki’s replacement in the Biden administration:

Female – check,

Black – check,

Immigrant – check…the job’s yours. You’re not gay too are you, or feel a bit manly?

No,

Ok, pity though, we could have checked another box or two!

The other downside to this is that when you put people in positions based on a social justice box tick and not on actual merit then, inevitably, there will be failure. Just look at the political leadership across the globe. How many of them are there because of their talents? You don’t have to delve too far into their history to see that they are all hand-picked for who they are and not what they can do. Justin Trudeau is where he is because of his father, a former Premier of Canada. Emmanuel Macron worked for the Rothschild’s before launching, or being launched, into politics. Jacinda Ardern graduated along with the likes of Tony Blair from the WEF’s young global leadership programme. See link below, you’ll note a few familiar names there.

But in all the shouting for ‘social justice’ I haven’t heard a mention of nepotism or connection to the upper classes and moneyed rich. British politics and all those top civil service jobs are all filled with graduates from Oxbridge who came up through the public school system. The ‘Old Boys Network’ is still going strong and not a word about the advantages mummy and daddy’s money and connections bought for their offspring. Nor has there been much about how the rich own and control everything already, or when the rules these governments enforced on the rest of us over covid, did not apply to them because when you have a private jet you can go anywhere, at any time, without restriction, or party at your leisure like Boris and the rest of them.

When ‘everyone gets a medal’ it undermines those who excel and kills off their reason for trying, why bother training, studying, acquiring a skill when someone with no training, no effort and no skills can walk in and take away all that you have worked hard for.

The 1960’s were a golden age in Britain, social mobility was at its highest, Britain led the world in industry, music and art, and it held the promise of a more equitable future. The working classes were better off than ever and had a strong voice that was finally being heard. It was the generations who remember those times that voted for Brexit because they saw how much their country had declined since joining the Common Market/EU and finally had the chance to stop the rot.

The Eurovison song contest which also began back in the 1960’s was one of those shows that the whole family used to gather around the TV to watch and see if you could pick the winner, like the Miss World Contest, before the feminist rabble intervened and killed it off. It was fun, a bit of harmless entertainment that everyone could enjoy. God forbid you try to have some fun now when cancel culture rules and the self-righteous and humourless are in charge!

Most of the social justice warriors/neo-liberal fascists are not even aware that they are just pawns in a rich man’s game, designed to keep us down and fighting amongst ourselves while they, quite literally, get away with murder. The stresses of the last two years have left us all fatigued and stressed, the world has been turned upside down and the lunatics are still in charge. It feels overwhelming.

And yet it is in the world of art and entertainment that I see hope. Artistic types have to be able to create and seldom fit into a one size fits all, homogenous, characterless world where you are not allowed to have fun, disagree and ‘MUST FOLLOW ZE RULES AT ALL TIMES!!’

The Sex Pistols have re-released God Save the Queen, just in time for the Jubilee (links below and a few more for the fun of it!) It is good to see that the spirit of punk is still alive and well. Stick it to them Johnny! While It may appear that the ‘elites’ have it all going their way at present, they control politics, the media and the corporate world but no one gets to have it all their way, all the time, forever. Change will come, people are waking up and the pendulum will eventually swing back the other way. I just hope it will be sooner rather than later so that the ‘architect’s’ of the present mess can be held to account. But, in the meantime, just to try and speed things along, you can always introduce your children/grandchildren to the Sex Pistols and see if we can inspire a new generation to bring on the Anarchy! Altogether now! I am an anti-Christ, I am an anar-chist…

Identity

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Friday, 1 Apr 2022, 14:42

Watching the Olympic opening ceremony the other night, I realized that the soundtrack of the opening, was also the soundtrack of my life.  While I was born, and still live in Northern Ireland , I identify with a lot of aspects of British culture.

I mostly watch BBC television and listen to BBC radio.  David Bowie was my first crush and Led Zeppelin my favourite band.  I recognized the films clips from Kes and Billy Elliot, they’re both in my own film collection, and of course, I can thank the OU, for knowing all about Glastonbury Tor.  When I thing about identity, or what country or people I identify with, then there are so many influences that have shaped me that it would be almost impossible to identify with one country or one group of people alone.  I would have considered myself Irish growing up, but realistically there are many aspects of Irish culture that I can’t relate to at all, especially the drinking culture.

Politically, the group I identify most with are the working class, but I also identify with women across the globe, especially those in countries like Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan in their struggles against male domination.  I can also identify with the black man’s struggle against racial bigotry, Malcolm X is my one of my political heroes and I often think his assassination was a greater loss to the American people than Dr King.  I also identify with the Native American community in their struggles to survive after the loss of their land, and the ongoing problems that alcohol has caused in their communities.

Spiritually, I identify with their idea of the Great Spirit, but I also identify with the Chinese philosophy of Taoism and Tibetan Buddhism.  Christianity, is the faith I was brought up in, and I also have a lot of regard for the teachings of Jesus.  There is a school of thought, that believes that Jesus studied Eastern philosophy, part of this comes from his saying, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’….because Taoism translates as the ‘way’, and of course there are many other similarities between both philosophies.  (I prefer to call them philosophies, not religions, because at their core, they are about seeking truths about how to live morally, and ethically) 

When I consider all of these things, I can’t stand up and say I am one thing and one thing alone,  I don’t belong to one homogenous group, to the exclusion of all others.  I am a sub-culture of many different places and peoples, and when you think about it, aren’t we all a sub-culture? 

We eat the food from different places, are influenced by other peoples ideas and ways of living, we have been shaped by so many different things, that when politicians start deriding multi-culturalism, I often wonder how interesting it would be, if all the people in the country who had a parent or grand- parent from a different country, went out on strike for a day.  I think it would be really interesting to see just how multi-cultural we all are, and I’m sure there would be a few surprises among them all.  Even the Queen is descended from Germany on one side of the family.

And there was another thing about the Olympic opening, when the athletes were coming in, there were very few countries that weren’t multi-cultural.  I have often said that time will prove Darwin right, and all those people of dark skin who came to live in traditionally white countries, and all the white people who have moved to places like Africa and Australia will eventually have descendants with different coloured skin.  It won’t happen overnight, it’ll take a few generations, but I remember the first time I saw a picture of Eugene Terre-Blanche, the leader of the right-wing National Party in South Africa .  I remarked that it was strange for a black man to be leading a right-wing party, when I was informed he was white.  Well, he didn’t look very white to me, and that was what got me thinking about it.  If the Theory of Evolution is right, it follows logically, that is what should happen, as they adapt to their new environment.  I discussed this with a friend one night, whose parents were originally from India, and he had to agree that his skin was lighter, and he noticed when he went back to India on holiday, how much paler he was compared to his relatives.    

I have done a bit of traveling in the last few years, and what I have noticed over and over again, is that no matter where you live, or what political or religious philosophy you subscribe to,  the fact is, there is only one human race, and the vast majority of us are just trying to make our way in the world.  We want to be happy, we want a reasonable standard of living, we want to watch our children grow up in peace. 

We’re very lucky in this part of the world, in spite of our social and political problems, that most of us have a roof over our heads, most of us have enough to eat and the truth is, most of us live like kings compared to other parts of the world.  We have a lot to be grateful for, and yet we take so much for granted, we throw away our lives and chances with drugs and alcohol.  We have eyes but we don’t really see the great beauty that is all around us, in nature and in people.  We have ears but when we are out and about, they are usually plugged into an ipod or suchlike, and we never stop and really listen to the birds singing, or the wind soughing through the trees.  (Great word that, soughing)

Western society has us tied in knots, we have been burdened with the stuff of capitalism and consumerism, we feel cut off and alone, most of us don’t even know our neighbours. Those who rule over us, are so out of touch with our basic reality that it makes us feel powerless to effect any sort of meaningful change.  We have grown tired and cynical as we have seen politician after politician, promise us the sun, moon and stars, only to watch those same people, once elected, become another political clone, the grey man in the grey suit who helps fill the pockets of the rich, while ignoring the plight and reality of the rest of us.  We yearn to be part of something, to unburden ourselves of the debt and pressure of modern life, we want to live simpler and better lives.  We don’t need to be millionaires or billionaires, but is it really too much to expect a reasonable wage for a reasonable day’s work? 

I read this in Steve Hagen’s book, ‘Buddhism, plain and simple’ -  ‘Henry Ford after he make his first billion dollars, was asked how much more he wanted.  He said he wanted just a little more’.

Henry Ford was also a bigot, and ferociously anti- Semitic, he advocated expelling all the Jews from the US . So for all his wealth, it doesn’t seem that Henry was a very happy man but it does allow us to see the thinking behind those who have so much wealth.  Governments have advocated the ‘trickle down’ effect as way of re-distributing wealth. The idea is that if we allow the rich to become even more richer, then the wealth they create will trickle down.  Unfortunately, the rich and the very rich, or ‘the haves and the have mores’, as George Bush so succinctly put it, like to keep all their money for themselves that’s why they are rich to begin with!

History will judge us, and history will condemn us, for the simple reason that those who had so much, were allowed to keep it, while others were left to starve to death.  We can’t say we didn’t know because we do know, and while most of us are not millionaires or billionaires, and are limited in what we can do, governments are not.  We need change, and we need it at the top, because that is where the power is.  We need to think about who we vote for, and why,  Do we really subscribe to the tenants of the religious faiths we belong too or we all just too worn out and tired, trying to make it from one working week to the next?

Change will come, whether by choice or circumstances, the global capitalist system has failed, although governments across the globe are still desperately trying to prop it up.  We are now living through the last days of global capitalism. This way of living is coming to and end, it was never sustainable anyway.  The economy is contracting, and India and China are experiencing an economic slow down, as well.  (One thing the recession has done for me, is that I realized how few of the trappings of consumerism, I really need.  I was out of work for a year and living on the dole certainly helps focus the mind on what you really need, as opposed to, what you want) 

Capitalism is sustained by two things, oil and consumption.  Oil is a finite resource and there are those who say we have already reached peak oil production, so it’s going to be all downhill from here.  When I look around my house, as I’m sure you can too, ask yourself, just how many more products do you really need?  When every room has the flat-screen tv, there are two, or maybe three, cars parked outside,  your wardrobe is stuffed with clothes, and shoes, and all the incumbent accessories, and you probably only wear the same 3 or 4 outfits, again and again.  The bathroom is overflowing with lotions and potions, the kitchen is the same with all the gizmos and gadgets, and around the TV in the living room, there are so many electrical items that a six- plug extension, - with surge protection of course - can barely cover it. 

We need to really start thinking about the future and sustainable living, because if we don’t start planning now, then we are in for some very tough times ahead.  If we don’t start preparing for a world without oil, then we’ll be facing a future of famine and war.  There is a lot of talk around electric cars, but how are they going to be built when manufacturing depends on oil, not to mention the tarmac needed for the roads?  And what about electricity, how are we going to be able to provide the energy levels that we enjoy now? 

These are all questions that need to be taken seriously and we need to start looking for the answers.  In looking forward, we need to look back to how we lived before we all became part of the capitalist system.   I have always envied and admired the Native Americans and their lifestyle before ‘old whitey’ landed.  They lived sustainably and didn’t desecrate the land the way we do.  Christopher Columbus didn’t have to wade through rubbish dumps, or slum housing and ghettoes when he landed in the Americas .  The first Europeans thought they had found the Garden of Eden, as the land was so pristine and abundant with food.  We need to find some middle way between our technology and our resources so that we can take all the scientific and technological achievements and marry them in such a way as to create a society that can sustain itself and work for everyone together not just for those at the top.  And to be able to do it without ravaging the planet, because this is one area where we will all be in it together and if we don’t start making real plans then there are some very dark days ahead for our children and grandchildren.

(The Native American communities are being ravaged by alcohol.  The Lakota Sioux in South Dakota are trying to raise money to build a healing centre to help deal with the problems that alcohol is causing on the reservation and to care for children when their parents can’t.  It is called Oceti Wakan, which means Sacred Fireplace.  If you wish to donate you can log on to their website, just type in Oceti Wakan and you’ll find it)
