The life that we want and the world that we live in is based on our own creation. Do we want it to be loving and supportive or toxic. Not only must we hold others to their promises, but we must hold ourselves to our responsibilities. -The Warrior

Age of Innocence

Winnie-the Pooh

Picture-2011

Like many kids growing up in England (and elsewhere), I was fed a regular diet of Winnie-the-Pooh, along with many other children’s stories and fairy-tales. Born shortly after the second world war, the conversations of grown-ups often centred around  some harrowing, but often comical experiences. Sleeping under the snooker table or in purpose-build cages for safety. Or the time that a “doodlebug” (German flying bomb) landed in the neighbours back garden and blew part of the roof off granny’s house along with smashing many windows.

Grandma was a born storyteller and I would listen for hours to the exploits of uncles and cousins who sailed the seven sea, drove cars in excess of 30 mph or had invented a system for canning herrings.

Nothing however was as enjoyable as listening to my mother reading before bedtime the exploits of Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin. I think that my favourite place was the 100 acre woods at the top of the world. There was a woods nearby our house filled with pine tree planted in sandy soil. It seamed to fit the story.

There was an openness in those days, almost a loneliness, where the imagination was inseparable from reality. We played outdoor for hours-on-end in the dirt, in the mud, in the trees. We built forts and dens. We damed streams and caught frogs. Being innocent as all children are, we had no concept of the reality that lay in wait for us as adults. In a way, it is a shame that life has the be so “real”.

January 18th is the birthday of AA Milne, the author of the Pooh storybooks. Katherine Brooks, Senior Arts & Culture Editor, The Huffington Post, did a lovely story about him on this date in 2016. -The Warrior

“Today is national Winnie-the-Pooh day, otherwise known as the birthday of English author A.A. Milne. He’s the man who brought our favorite honey-obsessed bear to life in that eponymous book published back in 1926 — Winnie-the-Pooh.

It was Milne’s son — a boy named Christopher Robin — who, with his very own teddy bear named Winnie, inspired the basis of a universe populated by Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo. Together, the characters, many based on Christopher’s actual toys, lived in a fictional land dubbed the Hundred Acre Wood, filled with woozles and heffalumps and the perfect spots for playing Poohsticks.”

Water

“Our unquenchable thirst for the earth’s defining resource”

water01

“THE WORLD’S POPULATION was 2.8 billion when I was born. Not quite six decades later, 7.2 billion humans inhabit the planet. This fact runs through almost all of my photographs, but it became especially relevant when I started to think about taking pictures of the earth’s water.

My journey began in California, in 2008. National Geographic had asked me to contribute to an issue devoted to water, and California, with 38 million people and an enormous agriculture industry, turned out to be a good place to start.” –VISUAL ESSAY BY  – OCTOBER 2013

Banana Republic and the CIA

Stop the War in Central America” by Mark Vallen – 1986

http://www.art-for-a-change.com/index.html

“In 1954, the U.S. State Department and the CIA sponsored a covert operation resulting in the overthrow of the democratically-elected Guatemalan President, Jacobo Arbenz…. From the 1950s until the 1990s, the U.S. directly supported Guatemala’s army by supplying it with combatant training, weaponry, and money. The U.S. sent the Green Berets to Guatemala to transform its Army into a “modern counter-insurgency force,”… The CIA also created a list…leaders who were targeted for assassination. The U.S. government used the potential threat of communism to justify its support for the Guatemalan government…Those Guatemalan personnel hired by the CIA were referred to as “assets.” As documented by the Guatemalan Historical Clarification Commission and the Intelligence Oversight Board, assets committed egregious acts of violence on the citizens of Guatemala including: “Mass indiscriminate killings defined as “genocide” by the Historical Clarification Commission. Arbitrary executions and Kidnappings. Widespread and systematic torture…executions. Policies of genocide such as the “Scorched Earth” operations”.

“…creation of 36-years of terror by successor dictators. This support included military training in counterinsurgent techniques, financing of actions resulting in human rights violations, and close collaboration with military intelligence units. According to the Historical Clarification Commission, 93% of human rights violations and acts of violence are attributable to the Army. The Historical Clarification Commission documents the following human rights violations committed by the Guatemalan State:

The deaths or disappearances of over 200,000 persons…over 600 massacres – The elimination of leaders of those organizations in defence of human rights – The mass extermination of defenceless Mayan communities, including children, women, and the elderly – Damage to many Mayan communities homes, cattle, crops, and other elements essential for survival – Multiple acts of cruelty and savagery either preceding, accompanying, or occurring after the deaths of the victims – A systematic practice of forced disappearances – The rape of women as a common practice – A systematic practice of arbitrary executions – Counterinsurgency tactics, including psychological warfare, propaganda, and intimidation – Death squads used to eliminate alleged members, allies, or collaborators of those considered “subversives” – Systematic denial of habeas corpus, continuous interpretation of the law favourable to the authorities, indifference to the torture of those detained, and limitations on the right to defence – Forced and discriminatory military recruitment, including minors under the age of fifteen – Failure of the Army to make the distinctions between the enemy and the civilian population – “Genocide” as defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

In 1997…The Clarification Commissions exposure of U.S. complicity in Guatemala over the past 36 years prompted President Clinton to offer a formal and unequivocal apology on March 10, 1999.” Found at: Shepard Broad Law Center website of Nova Southeastern University, Florida

Pinkwashing!

smoke-4-cure_600

“(NaturalNews) I couldn’t let October’s Breast Cancer Awareness (but not prevention) Month come to a close without posting a satire cartoon exposing all the pinkwashing we’ve seen this month. You can buy everything in pink these days, from bottled water to fried chicken, alcohol and even handguns. So why not cigarettes? All these pink products claim to give some mystery percentage of “net profits” (which could be zero if the company isn’t profitable) to “find a cure for cancer” (a ridiculous proposition since we already have natural cures for cancer).

It’s all part of the cancer industry’s brainwashing propaganda that tries to convince people that we can cure cancer by going shopping!

It’s ludicrous, of course. And more and more people are waking up to it. They’re opening their eyes to the pinkwashing scams and actually refusing to buy pink products.”

BIOGRAPHY

“Los Angeles-based artist Revok first became interested in art through his father’s collection of 60s and 70s album covers and comic books, as well as the skateboarding and graffiti scenes. For over two decades, Revok has continually pushed the boundaries—both creative and legislative—of street art, producing vibrant works that meld structured with dynamic colors and forms. A completely self-taught artist, Revok finds freedom in his naiveté. After years of a decidedly anti-institutional practice, Revok began making studio work, finding inspiration in his ability to refine the techniques he mastered as a street artist. His ultimate goal is to be constantly maturing and evolving as an artist, never confined by any one way of making work.”

Hollow Tube…?

World Trade Center

World Trade Center under construction, November 21, 1969

Does this look like a “Hollow Steel Shaft”, as claimed in the official FEMA report. This image was taken during the construction of the Twin Towers, in New York city. The “hollow tube” construction myth has been used by many disinformation websites.

“For the dimensions, see FEMA report, “World Trade Center Building Performance Study,” undated. In addition, the outside of each tower was covered by a frame of 14-inch-wide steel columns; the centers of the steel columns were 40 inches apart. These exterior walls bore most of the weight of the building. The interior core of the buildings was a hollow steel shaft, in which elevators and stairwells were grouped. Ibid. For stairwells and elevators, see Port Authority response to Commission interrogatory, May 2004.” -Bold added by author

Eat Shit and Die?

Krugman

There appears to be a tradition when it comes to the care of those who suffer from mental issues. The “science” of Eugenics studied in the late 1800’s continued for over 100 years. It is a stunning fact that our governments turned a blind eye to the abuses carried out in sanatoriums and hospitals and often the case, actually funded the diabolical experiments carried out by crazed doctors. MK-ULTRA was probably the biggest government (CIA) funded brainwashing program, certainly one that we know about. However, it was not only these mind-control tortures that were taking place. A madman doctor by the name of Krugman deliberately infected children housed at Willowbrook State School, in New York, with hepatitis B. Of course Krugman was revered by his peers and went on the become the president of the American Pediatric Society. -The Warrior

“Dr. Krugman deliberately infected mentally disabled children who were confined at Willowbrook School (NY) with hepatitis B. The school housed 6,000 children in abominable conditions. In one experiment, children were fed excrement containing live hepatitis B virus. In another experiment children were injected with live hepatitis virus in an effort to deliberately infect the children with hepatitis in order to learn about different viruses that caused hepatitis and to find a preventive vaccine. Participation in the study was a condition for admission to institution. This infamous experiment was funded by the US Army and approved by the NYS Department of Mental Hygiene. Dr. Krugman won several awards from his medical peers who called his work, “groundbreaking” without any thought about the abuse and suffering of the children he infected. An expose by Geraldo Rivera in 1972, led to a NYS consent decree that forbids the incarceration of mentally retarded children in large institutions. That same year, Dr. Krugman was elected president of the American Pediatric Society. A documentary about the experiments, Willowbrook won best short film category at the Boston Film Festival, 2012.” -Found at:

Canada’s Finest “Madman”

Donald_Ewen_Cameron_canmedaj01237-0046-a

“Montreal woman seeks compensation in ’50s brainwashing case”

–CBC News, Montreal, January 8, 2007

“HUNDREDS of mentally ill patients who were subjected to barbaric CIA-funded brain-washing experiments…could be entitled to compensation… Doctor Ewan Cameron…developed techniques used by Nazi scientists to wipe out the existing personalities of people in his care…using drugs such as LSD on hundreds of patients… only 77 of them were awarded compensation. Now a landmark ruling…in Montreal will allow more than 250 former patients…to seek compensation… Using techniques similar to those portrayed in the celebrated novel the Manchurian Candidate… Cameron developed a range of depatterning “treatments” while director of the Allan Memorial Institute at McGill University… Patients were woken from drug-induced stupors two or three times a day for multiple electric shocks. In a specially designed “sleep room”…Cameron placed a speaker under the patient’s pillow and relayed negative messages for 16 hours a day.” “Mind Control Victims Win Court Case” by Karin Goodwin,  The Sunday Times, October 17, 2004

Donald Ewen Cameron was born in Scotland in 1901. After graduating from the University of Glasgow, he moved to Canada shortly thereafter and began working at the Brandon Mental Hospital in Manitoba.  By 1938, he was appointed Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at Albany State Medical School and so moved to New York state. During his tenure at Albany, Cameron began his research into sensory deprivation along with the study of memory. He was recruited by the OSS (forerunner to the CIA) during the Second World War and in 1943, although still living in Albany he began working at Montreal’s McGill University.

The Allan Memorial Institute, which housed the Psychiatry Department of the Royal Victoria Hospital, had just opened, being part of McGill University Health Centre. The “Allan” was located in a beautiful mansion built by Sir Hugh Allan, a wealthy Montreal businessman  and perched on the side of Mount Royal. The Allen family donated it to the Royal Victoria Hospital in 1940. Unfortunately, the exterior beauty belied the devilish deeds that took place within.

“It was during this era that Cameron became known worldwide, serving as the second President of the World Psychiatric Association as well as president of the American and Canadian psychiatric associations. He was also a member of the Nuremberg medical tribunal…where he accused German medics of things he himself did between 1934–60 or later, though his scientific work during World War II for the OSS has never been a secret.” Gordon Thomas, “Journey into Madness”, 1993, pages 167- 68

In 1945, Cameron was sent to Nuremberg, Germany by Allen Dulles to examine Nazi war criminal Rudolf Hess in order to assess if he was fit to stand trial. It is believed by some (including Allen Dulles, CIA) that the Hess at Nuremberg was an impostor and not the same person who had secretly flown to Britain to meet with Winston Churchill in an attempt to overthrow Adolf Hitler and end the war. The alternative to this is that Hitler, who knew about Hess and approved the plan, secretly wanted to stop fighting with Britain and together attack Russia.

Back at the lab, Cameron experimented with LSD and PCP along with various paralytic drugs such as Seconal, Metrazol, Thorazine, Nebutal and Insulin that were used to induce comas. Apparently this was a great way to cure Schizophrenia and Manic Depression. The use of electro-shock was popular (with doctors that is) around this time and Cameron, not wanting to be left out, applied this technique like never before. Not being shy with the use of electroconvulsive therapy, he liked to crank the machine up by 30 to 40 times the normal power.

Metrazol (Pentylenetetrazol) a circulatory and respiratory stimulant was also popular when used in massive doses. It sent patients into convulsions so severe that often they needed to be x-rays to see if any fractures or bone damage had been done. In 1982 the FDA revoked its approval. Remember, this “treatment” is being carried out by a doctor in Canada, not Nazi Germany.

“Metrazol produced an explosive seizure about a minute after the injection. Often these convulsions would result in fractured bones and torn muscles… After a patient received one treatment they were resistant to subsequent treatment, resisting and pleading for it not to be done again and would have to be forcibly treated.” -Found at: fairfieldstatehospital.com

One of Cameron’s inspirations and nemesis was the British psychiatrist Dr. William Sargant who worked in the same field of deep sleep treatment and mind control. Their work paralleled each other as Sargant carried out virtually identical experiments at St. Thomas’  Hospital in London and Belmont Hospital, Surrey, also without his patients’ consent, which seems to be the norm for these people.

“In the Grid Room, an involuntary subject would be strapped into a chair…Violent resistance was quelled with curare…used in arrow poisons by South American Indians and in medicine to produce muscular paralysis. From a head bristling with electrodes and transducers, the subdued subject’s brain waves would be beamed to a nearby reception room crammed with voice analyzers and radio receivers cobbled together by laboratory assistant Leonard Rubenstein. Rubenstein, a man who lacked professional medical credentials, believed passionately in the political uses of mind control. Experiments…he declared, would one day help governments “keep tabs on people without their knowing.” “The Hidden History of the CIA’s Electromagnetic Mind-Control Experiments”, by Alex Constantine, 1995

Cameron’s greatest creation, which made him famous, was “psychic driving”. This practice included putting subjects into drug-induced (insulin) comas, technically known as insulin coma therapy (ICT), for up to three months. Once in the coma he would play a modified tape-player using an endless-loop with pre-recorded repetitive statements. The first part of the treatment was the playing of negative messages in an effort to breakdown the mind and destroy all links to the existing personality contained within. Coupled with this, was the use of electroconvulsive therapy until the brain turned to a greenish mush resembling guacamole that oozed out through the patients ears (kidding about this part). When satisfied that nothing was left of the old personality, the messages changed to new positive recording and played endlessly. Something like Tiny Tim singing “Tiptoe through the Tulips”.

But when all is said and done the important thing is how your friends and colleagues remember you. Here is an obit to Cameron listing his “accomplishments”. The poor drooling slobs left in his wake are of no importance it appears.

“His world-wide success in his profession was, of course, due principally to his great knowledge and brilliance. But surely a great factor also was the softness – one is tempted to say loveliness – of his personality. Those who were privileged to know him, even briefly, will not soon forget the warmth and the kindliness of this understanding man” Obituary published by the American Journal of Psychotherapy following Cameron’s death in 1967, which listed his many “accomplishments”

Yes, I can imagine that those who knew him well, as he strapped them down, as he and his team pumped them full of Metrazol, LSD or Insulin, will never “forget the warmth and the kindliness of this understanding man”. Wow, are we even talking about the same person? That is like saying Jack the Ripper was great at giving a manicure. It’s an insult and oh so typical of the verbal fallatio these “Experts” give their fraternity. 

It is staggering that in the name of some self-serving morality, criminals can get away with abuse and often murder. What difference is there between Cameron (and the others mentioned here) and Tomas de Torquemada, head of the Spanish Inquisition? At the same time it is apparent that the greater the crimes of these maniacs the more glowing the endorsements and accolades. This is how Miranda Twiss describes Torquemada in her interesting book “The most Evil Men and Women in History”…. “He developed his institution with pitiless zeal and ruthless fanaticism. Clad in the austere garb of a Dominican friar, the gaunt, sunken-eyed sadist vented his hatred on Jews and heretics (meaning Muslims), forcing up to 300,000 out of Spain and destroying their lives forever.” We can easily substitute Torquemada with Cameron, Gottlieb, or Dr. Louis Jolyon West (discussed later in the book), because the modality of their abuse is irrelevant. Is torturing a person in the name of one god more acceptable than another? And when it comes down to it, the vast majority of abuse and torture is done by or on behalf of institutions and regimes. Stalin, Mao, Pot Pol, the list goes on. Surely it is illogical to presume that it was only these individuals themselves that carried out the abuse and genocides. Doubtful at best, that any of them ever actually killed someone directly. This is an opinion as I have no data on this particular comment, but of course it was the loyal followers that actually carried out the slaughter believing that they had some moral or ethical justification, a belief implanted by the crazed despot. All you need to do is reduce the opposition to a state of non-humans; to demonize them with false propaganda, and the rest is easy. And again, if you think that we are only talking about history, that this is a story from the middle-ages, then you need to look around. Torquemada might have lived five hundred years ago, but WWII was less than 80 years ago and as they say, the beat goes on. Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya are only a few happening now.

“Metrazol-like drugs are still used in interrogations today. According to reports from several former noncommissioned Army officers, who served on rendition-related security details in Turkey, Pakistan and Romania, drugs that produce effects quite similar to Metrazol are still used in 2010 by the Pentagon and CIA on enemy combatants and rendered subjects held at the many “black sites” maintained across the globe. Observed one former officer recently, “They would twist up like a pretzel, in unbelievable shapes and jerk and shake like crazy, their eyes nearly popping out of their heads. -The Hidden Tragedy of the CIA’s Experiments on Children” by H. P. Albarelli Jr. and Jeffrey S. Kaye

(NaturalNews) “Now we finally come to the real agenda of the vaccine industry. After vaccines have been repeatedly documented by the Natural News Lab to contain neurotoxic chemicals such as mercury, formaldehyde and MSG; after vaccine shots have been repeatedly shown to kill people who take them; and after flu shots have been exhaustively shown to be based on no science whatsoever — with vaccine manufacturers openly admitting there are no clinical trials to show they even work — the rabid vaccine pushers are unveiling their end game: throw vaccine resistors in prison.”

Orwell and Huxley – Words of Warning

Orwell and Huxley“Within the next generation I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience. In other words, I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World. The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency. Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large scale biological and atomic war — in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.” -More found at:

Screwed again…

831-81_d1

“One of the most important legal cases in Canadian history is slowly inching its way towards trial.  Launched in 2011 by the Toronto-based Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), the lawsuit would require the publicly-owned Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 mandate and practice of lending interest-free money to federal, provincial, and municipal governments for infrastructure and healthcare spending.

Renowned constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati has taken on the case for COMER, and he considers it his most important case to date.  

On October 14, a Federal Court judge cleared away yet another legal roadblock thrown in the lawsuit’s path. The federal government has tried to quash the case as frivolous and “hypothetical,” but the courts keep allowing it to proceed. As Galati maintains, “The case is on solid legal and constitutional grounds.”    

“Because they’re paying $30 or $40 billion a year in useless interest…”

When asked after the October procedural hearing why Canadians should care about the case, Galati quickly responded: “Because they’re paying $30 or $40 billion a year in useless interest. Since ’74, more than a trillion to fraudsters, that’s why they should care.” (COMER says the figures are closer to $60 billion per year, and $2 trillion since 1974.)”
