Authoritarian Secrecy for the Bosses Vs. Constant Intrusive Surveillance for the Common People

On October 2, 2017, the Committee on City Services of the City Council of Northampton held a meeting to discuss the placement of surveillance cameras in downtown Northampton.

Residents were present to object to the installation of such a surveillance system infrastructure, which would inevitably morph into the wholesale one-way supervision of observee common people by elite observer bosses.

Community Survival Is Becoming More Relevant Each Day

Communities around the U.S.A. are woefully under-represented on the Internet.

This must change! Our communities must survive! The confusion has become overwhelming. Now is the time to get organized.

Help Out The Gulf Coast Oil Refugees!

Ad hoc BP-Disaster oil refugee sites are being formed on the Internet now. Some are much better than others. The “HELP GULF EVACUEES” forum is bullshit. It says:

Gulf Coast evacuees need to be self sufficient and able to work or contribute in some fashion to those person(s) who assist them.

But many refugees are going to be seriously sick, or old, or disabled. But these people don’t care!

Here is perhaps a better site:

Haven – A meeting place for those affected by the oil disaster and those willing to lend a helping hand.

I am also starting this page on this (soon to be upgraded to independent status) blog.

If you seek refugee assistance or can offer assistance, leave a comment at Haven, or here. Of course, the folks who assist and are assisted must know as much as possible about each other before becoming involved!

The STARBASE Conspiracy

Here are some bare-bones details that I’ve dug up in my research regarding the STARBASE conspiracy. I stumbled across this conspiracy at the Portland Indymedia site, but it’s article “link to article about ‘STARBASE’ military recruitment in Portland Public School shitstem” gives only a link (the original post was mal-formatted). This link leads to a post at the site PPS [Portland Public Schools] Equity in which an outraged parent decries the STARBASE military recruitment program that hauls “at-risk” (the new euphemism for “poor”) “kindergarten through 12th grade” kids off to military bases for enrichment training in science. This program does not haul away “not-at-risk” (rich) kids at schools in wealthy districts for science training and subliminal military recruitment. (The kids at the wealthy districts have their own non-military enrichment programs.) The PPS Equity post is Here. It rambles a bit, but gives the basic facts. But I have turned up even more info, and wow!

This is quite simply a Department of Defense funded progam that operates across the entire United States. You must Google –STARBASE education– to really understand how pervasive it is. It involves virtually every branch of the armed forces and National Guard, and also agencies like the (state) Connecticut Military Department (CT STARBASE Program). According to STARBASE is an acronym for Science and Technology Academies Reinforcing Basic Aviation and Space Exploration. The (state) Connecticut Military Department uses the same acronym. There is (to further obfuscate matters) also a NASA based STARBASE program for high school students: “Funded as a NASA Office of Space Science education program, STARBASE (Students Training for Achievement in Research Based on Analytical Space-science Experiences) consists of a network of networks, developed to connect high school students and teachers with cutting edge research.”

So: Military recruitment for “at risk” (poor) children now begins (in the name of science enrichment) in kindergarten. However, this wonderful program is not offered to “not-at-risk” (rich) students. How unfair!

The STARBASE program doesn’t look like much of a conspiracy in it’s current Wikipedia entry Wikipedia -STARBASE. I never trusted Wikipedia anyway. From their current page:

“STARBASE is a nonresidential educational program for students (grades K-12) that provides them with real-world applications of math and science. It was created in 1989 through a grant from the Kellogg Foundation. The first STARBASE program began at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Michigan. The STARBASE program provides an innovative approach to addressing three critical problems facing America’s youth: poor preparation in math and science, lack of personal direction, and drug abuse. The STARBASE mission is accomplished through exciting hands-on curricula and positive caring role models provided by the STARBASE team and military personnel. Beginning in Fiscal Year 1993 (FY93), Congress appropriated $2M to the Air National Guard (ANG) to establish five STARBASE sites. Today the program is authorized pursuant to 10 U.S.C. § 2193, as a science and mathematics education improvement program. The Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve, Navy, and Marine Corps participate in this program.”

Wikipedia seems not to mention that the STARBASE enrichment/recruitment program is not available to “not-at-risk” (rich) students. Hmm…

A Dire Anticipation

I am a liberal (whatever that means). The man who posted the article below is quasi-conservative, and a tad off base on some issues, as I see it. (And the suggestion about owning gold will only be helpful for a few weeks, after which, you may as well own marijuana, as I see it.) At the end he states: “I would only add, that disclosure is what these parasitic cockroaches fear the most. So, feel free to circulate this memo. But, PLEASE remove my address. I don’t want to be spammed. I have already won so many lotteries I just can’t collect the money fast enough.”

I would not normally post an entire article such as this. But this topic has been keeping me awake nights, and wrecking my nerves generally. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, was passed on October 3, 2008: this, including the precise time frame, is exactly what I had been predicting for about a year. I eschew making predictions, so I didn’t tell that prediction to many.

The article below happens to coincide with my next prediction. It’s a very depressing prediction. But I think my friends should be aware of it. I greatly wish I could offer a more cheerful prediction.

Pastor Lindsey Williams Details “Economic Calamity” Ahead
January 16, 2009
(Lindsey Williams)
(This is a summary by “Tom” of a recent interview of Williams by Gianni Hayes)
Dear Friends and Family:

For some years now, I have been saying that the “money changers” and “banksters” in London and New York are setting us up. They’re playing a money game in which all of the marbles are on the table. It seems that this game is now in the bottom of the Ninth inning. Tonight I listened to the Reverend Lindsey Williams on American Voice Radio, hosted by Ms. Gianni Hayes. Some people will recognize his name, some won’t. I am not going to go into a lengthy bio. You will have to do that research yourself, assuming you even have an interest. I will only mention that he is the man who, because of his contacts in the oil industry, correctly predicted that the world price for oil would fall from roughly $140.00 per barrel to less than $50.00 per barrel. He claims to be well connected to what he calls “the power elite,” and I firmly believe that he is telling the truth. But, what he calls the power elite is just one level of corporate America. He interacted with the high paid servants of the oil industry. That would be the executives of ARCO and other big oil companies when he served as chaplain for the Alaska pipeline. He knows and admits that the “real power” is much further up the food chain. Bottom line? Personally, as far as I am concerned, Reverend Williams character and credibility are unimpeachable. I think it is very important to pay attention to what he has to say.

After two hours of interview I had four legal pages of notes. I am going to relate as best I can the highlights of that interview. Some of you will get duplications because some of you are on more than one of my mailing lists. Please understand. I consider this matter to be extremely important!

This will be rough, since it will be stream of consciousness, right off of my note pad. But it is the message that is important and not the delivery.

1. The reason why the “elite” dropped the world price of oil down below $50.00 a barrel was to wage economic warfare against the Arab/ OPEC countries. “They” seek to bankrupt OPEC countries., especially the Iranians by cutting their revenues more than 75%. (Do you think that is why Mr. Chavez is so belligerent towards the USA?) Why would they do that? Because Iran and the other OPEC states are getting too strong and too wealthy. The Iranians are running an oil bourse, that effectively sidesteps the oil markets of New York and London. (My note. Even worse they are trading oil not for dollars but for other currencies such as the Euro. This is a direct threat to the western banking system.) According to Williams, this will not be allowed to continue. This is about control!! “What is happening today has been planned for years and there are other more nefarious motives, which will be outlined below.

2. The world reserve currency is the dollar and dollar denominated assets such as U.S. Treasury Debt. The Arabs have been recycling their petro dollars into U.S. Treasury debt for thirty five years. (My comment. The Arabs/OPEC have been financing our national debt. This is per agreement with the New York Banking establishment, and the U.S. Treasury. This arrangement has been part of the world order since the collapse of the Bretton Wood Agreement in 1971. This is now coming to an end.) Now that they are being bankrupted (intentionally) the OPEC/Arab states are no longer willing or able to buy Treasury Debt. Hence, the interest on the National Debt (which now exceeds 15 Trillion dollars?) is not being financed by foreign creditors. China, India and other Asian states are doing the same thing. “They are running from dollar denominated assets.” Therefore, the Federal Reserve is now buying up all the Treasury Debt issued by the U.S. Treasury to cover the debt maintenance on the national debt. (My Comment: this is called monetization and it is highly inflationary.) (My note: to put this in perspective, the so-called bailout, which was really nothing but a heist without the guns, in the amount of 700 billion dollars, was actually in the amount of 8.5 trillion dollars. All of this sum represents more debt “created” by the Federal Reserve which is then added to the National Debt. In addition to being extremely inflationary, we will be paying interest (“tribute?”) on this debt to the banksters in perpetuity.)

3. Gold and Oil generally move in tandem i.e., when oil goes up, so does gold. This has not been the case since the oil market collapsed. Gold has shown huge relative strength to the price of oil. Because of intense world wide demand and speculation the relationship between gold and oil will no longer continue. Gold will now move independently of oil.

4. This year, 2009, the USA will face total financial collapse. The dollar will also collapse in value, and it will take years for the U.S.A. to recover.

5. OPEC has been cutting production steadily but they cannot influence the supply of oil enough to affect the world price.

6. Ms. Hayes tried to get pastor Lindsey to point the finger at a particular ethnic group. He would not do so, but much to his credit he said that the Papacy and the Jesuits had nothing to do with what was going on.

7. He said we have more than enough oil in the USA for our own needs, but the so-called “elite” as he calls them have no intention of EVER developing a major oil field in the continental U.S. or Alaska. “They” will not allow this country to become energy independent, and they intend to continue to keep us dependent on foreign oil sources. (My note: Dependency is another world for control.) Later he mentioned the field just disclosed by the USGS which is located in Montana and N. Dakota. (This I believe is the Bakken Field.) He said that it contains 320 billion barrels which is only 10% of the reserves. This oil is worth about 15 trillion dollars. (My note: in others words the 300 BB is the easy oil. It’s the oil that will flow out of the ground under its own pressure. That means total reserves of this one field using secondary and tertiary recovery techniques are probably near three trillion barrels. To put that in perspective the Saudis have reserves of about 260 Billion barrels.) One of the senators from Montana has been screaming about this to Congress. He has been totally ignored by both Congress and the media.

8. Regarding Obama. “It did not matter who won the election.” The handlers around Obama are, for the most part, members of the Council on Foreign Relations. “The elite.” “The globalists.” They are essentially the same people who ran the Clinton administration and both Bush Administrations. “There will be absolutely no change in either our domestic or foreign policy. (My note: the people who have looted this country will continue to loot this country.) Regarding economic policies “Obama” will be another Hoover.” In other words Obama will follow orders and will take the fall for the economic calamity that is about to unfold. (My note: Obama is another feckless, empty suit, who was selected, trained, groomed, packaged and sold to a gullible, naive and lazy American public.)

9. Because of the tremendous cut in revenue to the Arab states (75%.) Dubai will become a “wasteland.” Already they have suspended all construction on major buildings in Dubai. “There will be no change in the future.”

10. All of the Arab states are sliding into a depression. Their budget planning is based upon $80.00 oil, so they are cutting their expenditures dramatically—-especially infrastructure and public works.

11. In addition to no longer buying our treasury debt, the Arab/OPEC states are now actively selling what treasury debt they hold. This is also occurring throughout Asia, especially China. This of course amounts to Trillions of dollars of Treasury debt etc. (My Note: if the Fed is now monitizing these debt instruments, which they must surely do since they are the buyer of last resort, this will also be highly inflationary.) The Arabs/OPEC/Asia are converting their dollars and dollar denominated assets to gold and other hard assets.

12. The long term goal of “these people” is to control and own everything. “They intend to break us.” (My comment: Geeeez. I am confused. Here, all along, I have been told by the media that our enemies are in the Middle East.)

13. Gasoline will remain at approximately $1.50 per gallon for the next year to a year and half. This is killing the State government gas tax revenues. Total, state tax revenues are collapsing. Expect many states to go bankrupt—-especially California.

14. “They” intend to control the world price of oil by dumping massive amounts of oil on the market to keep the price down. They intend to use, among other sources, an oil field in Indonesia that “they” just brought “on line.” This field has reserves of more than 300 billion barrels. He also mentioned another field in northern Russia.

15. The ultimate objective is to “destroy the USA.” At the same time “they” seek to consolidate control over all assets of any significance. “They” already own and control, the banks, and the media. (My note: Williams did not say, but obviously, they also control the oil industry.) “They” intend to gain control of the entire auto industry. According to Williams “why not buy the auto industry? All they need to do is create the credit in a computer entry.” The takeover of the auto industry will happen when the time is right. They also seek control of all the real estate that is worth owning. According to pastor Williams, everyone is going to be paying rent by the time this thing is over. Again he emphasized that “After years of collapse they intend to own everything.”

16. Russia is a major world power. Tensions will increase between the west and Russia. Look for a return of the cold war. (My note: he did not say it but I got the feeling that the Russians are not anxious to become part of the New World Order. Of course this oil price suppression is really hurting the Russians. They have had to devalue the Ruble seven times.)

17. “There will be no attack on Iran. There will no war with Iran.” “The American people will not stand for it.” They intend to accomplish their goal of destroying Iran by economic means. “They will accomplish their goal of destroying Iran without the need of another 911 false flag operation.”

18. “Within six to nine months we will be into full blown hyper inflation.” “Buy everything you need right NOW!!!!” “Prepare your dinner table NOW! It is going to be 1933 all over again.”

19. “The nations of the world, especially China, are dumping U.S. currency and buying gold.

20. “The reason why it is getting so hard for people to buy gold is that “they” do not want people to be able to protect themselves.” “They don’t want people to have something that is REAL.” (My note: it’s hard to find any significant quantities of gold anywhere. Silver too!)

21. “They fear people buying gold because it is something “they” can NOT control. They feel that only they, the elite, should own gold.””They regard it as real money.”

22. Their greatest fear is that the people will “wake up” from their slumber. “In fact they are terrified.” They do not intend to impose martial law. They believe this would cause an armed revolution and that they do not want. Hmmmm. (I guess that is why the founders included the Second Amendment in the Constitution.) “A revolution means they could lose control.”

23. “The American people are terrified of Obama.” “The day after the election the gun shops in the USA were emptied by alarmed and frightened citizens.” “Wal Mart reported that the day after the election their sales of ammunition went up by 400%. It was a record for ammunition sales in a twenty four hour period. (My note: this continued for several weeks after the election.) Evidently this behavior caused a great deal of alarm.

24. “They” have given up on implementing the North American Union and are “going all the way.” The goal is total global control of everything. Global Government. Global bank. Global Currency. Etc. (My note: this NWO globalism business has always included a global army, and a global religion. I am sure we will be hearing more about global religion from “Americas pastor,” Rick Warren)

Pastor Williams was asked what can we do? He made some suggestion which are not surprising. They are:

1. Get your spiritual house in order. (My note: I totally agree with Rev. Williams. At the core, this struggle is spiritual in nature. It is also a war on human consciousness. And, It is about both controlling and breaking the human spirit. That can only happen if we allow it to happen. “They” need us to surrender our God given powers to them for them to accomplish their evil deeds. Think, think, think! People must learn to use the magnificent brain that God gave us. Be skeptical of everything. In the coming months accept nothing at face value. Investigate everything. To do that you will need to turn off the “electronic sewer” “they” call television. Better yet, throw the damn thing in the dump where it belongs.The electronic and print media are a wasteland designed to keep you distracted, misled, confused and misinformed. You will NEVER discover anything of value watching boobokvision. Never!!!! Trust nobody until that person has EARNED your trust. And above all, question everything, especially if it comes from people in a position of authority. And, finally recognize that “the enemy” is within. The enemies of freedom are right here. Inside the gates.)

2. Plant a garden.

3. Get out of debt. He said debt is the main weapon of subversion and control used by “these people.” (My note. I totally agree with that remark unless all of your debt is unsecured and you own no real assets. Can’t squeeze blood from a stone.)

4. Store lots of food. “The farm economy is collapsing.”

That was all he had to say, but I am sure everyone on this list can fill in the rest.

I would only add, that disclosure is what these parasitic cockroaches fear the most. So, feel free to circulate this memo. But, PLEASE remove my address. I don’t want to be spammed. I have already won so many lotteries I just can’t collect the money fast enough.

Get ready. Be prepared. Protect yourself and your family. Protect your fellow Americans.

Keep smiling!!! It confuses “the enemy.”

Good luck and God bless! Choose life!!!! Tom

Meltdown Survival Books

The future will be disastrous, and you can take that to the bank (maybe). Perhaps the most likely scenario, given our current lurch in the direction of totalitarianism, is the implementation of martial law.

Here is a guy who sells a book for $20 (PDF Ugh!, PayPal, Ugh!). He’s an old straight-arrow type, I gather. But he offers a lot to ponder on his free page.

Learn How To Survive Martial Law
By Harold Williams

There will likely be several months of ‘Transition’ where little or nothing will be available to you. When this happens the store shelves will be stripped in two hours. How will you feed your family for several months and do all the normal things? That‘s just part of what this article is about. It’s a lot more complicated than you may think. Have you ever seen anyone slowly starve to death? It could be your family so wake up and listen to me. I’m on your side and I just want you to be alright.

-What you need for supplies of all kinds… it’s a detailed list of exactly what a family of 4 will need, and you can get most of it at a couple of big stores. Do it immediately!! If you don’t have the money then get it and I don’t care how.

Everything you’ll need is available in your local stores. I asked 12 people what they would buy and every one was wrong! Knowing how and where to store your specific things is critical. Remember, you are dealing with people trained to find your stuff. Do you think you can just put it in the cupboards and all will be OK? The article clearly shows where things are going in just a few weeks or months at the longest. So now you need to find out what to do to survive martial law.

Here’s another, by the mysterious blogger Sorcha Faal (She apparently lives in Ireland, but she must be from Russia. Some folks don’t trust her. Some of the Sorcha Faal literature is decidedly odd.) It’s been said that “Sorcha Faal” is not a name, but the title of the Matriarch of a somewhat secretive Russian Orthodox order of nuns.

Surviving Economic Crashes, Internal Unrest and Military Suppression

By: Sorcha Faal (Translated into English Special Offer! $25.95 US)

In the span of less than 3 months: Gasoline prices will rise 500%. The prices of both food and shelter rise over 300%. Unemployment levels reach over 30% and are still climbing. The savings of millions evaporate overnight due to currency devaluation and bank failures. Unrest will begin in the larger cities first, then spreading out into the countryside. Strong and repressive laws are newly enacted as Police and Military forces spread throughout the country to counter all signs of growing rebellion.

This massive book (over 400 pages) contains perhaps the largest archive of survival information for those facing the imminent dangers of collapsing economies and currencies and the subsequent dictatorial or revolutionary regimes that inevitably follow.

Do not believe foolishly either that your governments will allow much longer this book, or those by other groups seeking to assist Americans, to be available much longer into the future.

I am not trying to sell these books! And I haven’t read them. I’m just mentioning that they are available.

Wecome, Survivors

Well, if any of you hotshots from Cult o’ Life News wander over here, maybe you might have some ideas? You can comment.
