Evolving story about Popovic / Otpor / Canvas, Movement.org and Waging Nonviolence.

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Too much emphasis cannot be placed on mind control. Look at all the emphasis the Satanists who own the mass media and run the military and pharmaceutical-AMA (grin) industrial complex put on it. Look at the effort the self titled elite put on mind control and if you aren’t controlling your mind, they are. There are two ways about it. You are either driving or being driven. Sometimes you are driving and being driven such as in, “Get thee behind me”. There are always variations on a theme except for absolute truth and that will remain forever unspoken.
There are all kinds of experts and those who presume themselves to be well informed and insightful and it can be said that they do have a lot of information but all the information and access to corridors of power is useless, unless you have a perspective that is not under the influence of those that your knowledge and information happen to be about. This is the real tragedy about gatekeeper shills like Chomsky, Palast, Jones and the pilot fish that swim in their wake. No matter what information they may have, their understanding of it is flawed and ALSO compromised. They are also despised and held in low esteem by those who can see what they are up to and all they have left is the fawning sycophancy of their blinded followers, much like a teen heart throb with his legions of girl fans, squealing and chirping, with tuna-fish salad for brains, to offset and accentuate their camel-toed skin tight pants. They imagine the heart throb is one thing when he is quite another and he imagines that having these fans is a verification of artistic worth when it is nothing more than a product of the marketing department. He tells himself that his fans are all intelligent and their selection of him as a focus is proof of that but it is undeniable that the dumbest thing on Earth is a teenage girl and that is only exceeded by one other life form and that is a teenage boy. Sure there are exceptions but exceptions are what they are, they are not at that concert. The impact of raging hormones upon a person’s intellect can be impressive when coupled with a total lack of life experience. How do I know this? I’ve been there. I was surrounded by them and a total outcast as well but that’s Karma for you. At first you think it’s the worst thing in the world. Later on you realize that the universe was doing you a big favor. I’m training my mind to see everything that happens as a positive and a plus. Why? Because it is and only my attitude can turn it into something else because the universe inherently approves of me and I have to believe that. It’s sort of like Desiderata.
The world, as it is at present, wants to give you a bad image of yourself. Its intent is to dumb you down; make the superficial and trivial seem important, maintain you in a fearful and insecure state, divide you first against yourself and then against your fellows and a medley of other distresses as well. All of this takes place in your mind or does not take place in your mind, depending on what you permit to gain residence in your mind. Stand guard at the gates of your mind. This is the imperative first action you must take.
Back in the early part of the last century there was a philosophical and spiritual movement called New Thought. Of course, there will be the usual dissenters who will say things like, “That’s all Theosophy”, or they’ll come up with some label of dismissal. Far be it from them to ever read any of it with an open mind. Fact it that there is a wealth of info to be had there and much of it is practical and much of it deals with the mind and its workings. One of the best was Ernest Holmes who wrote “The Science of Mind”. Although the book has Christian overtones that shouldn’t distract you from the extremely useful information. Once again, not everything about every religion, movement or organization is wrong or evil. It is only those who are themselves evil within these religions, movements and organizations that are other than what is ideal in terms of the tenets to be followed. The real dumbasses among us are those who have an uninformed but definite opinion, which condemns everything out of hand and have never bothered to even look very deeply into any of them in order to extract what is useful. Okay, be that way. Sometimes I run into people who like to throw a whole lot of speculative and ill thought out opinion at me. Most of the time I can see their whole intent is just to make them look like they have a lot of knowledge and they are more concerned about the appearance of this than they are about the quality of the information they have, or what truths we might discover together. That’s worse than dumb. What could possibly be the value of having a whole lot of information and knowledge if you don’t even know what any of it actually means?
I equate this type of mindset with the modern economist and other faux experts. The majority of them start out with a premise and then use all indicators to prove the premise, instead of simply collecting all the facts and trends and weighing them objectively to see what they mean in and of themselves and especially what they mean in relation to each other. Then… then you humbly express that this is what it seems to say but that is only what you have been able to come up with and certainly there is the possibility that another perspective might be taken from the whole matter. These people, like the global warming nuts and every other group who are possessed of an agenda, regardless of the actual facts in evidence, they will force those facts to make conclusions they do not make of themselves, in order to satisfy that agenda, or they will change the facts, as they have been caught doing many times and even when exposed they will deny their actions right in the face of damning evidence otherwise. There are a collective of them out there these days whose sole concerns are their positions and manufactured fame, not to mention the money that is at the root of all of it. I often wonder what a room full of people who are all full of shit find themselves talking about.
Unless one can empty their mind and strip themselves of all the false illusions they have about themselves they are going to be none too effective at anything of real importance because their perspective will always be skewed from the getgo. If you can effectively empty your mind to a certain level, the one who is truly in residence will reveal itself and will then set your house in order and you can see things as they are because you can see yourself as you are; not someone greater than others but an equal among equals.
There will always be those who are better than you are at certain things but no one will do those things quite like you do. One of the most valuable things I have ever learned is to not elevate myself above others. Why? Because all kinds of people can do things I can’t do and wish I could do. I am ineffective in many areas, due to a lack of aptitude and a focus on other things. We can’t do everything. We can’t be everything but we can do what we do well and have a lasting impact if we have allowed something greater to have a lasting impact on us. You become what you emulate. Who’s your role model?
The mind… it all happens in the mind. The mind pictures it and the heart supports it. It is a sad testimony of the times that the majority of the passions in the hearts of the people are all about acquisition and personal status, the ambition to triumph at all costs. When the mind is stilled, you have a quietude that allows for reflection. When the mind is stilled, you have the power to draw what you wish into it. When the mind is stilled it is not at war with itself, subsequently it is not at war with others. This makes your passage to and from a great deal easier and less conflicting than it might have been otherwise. The mind. The mind. The mind. What could be simpler? What makes it complex and confusing is the reliance upon external appearances for information. Appearances lie and therefore they are naturally complex. Things become very simple when you become simple. When you can cut down on the many things you are craving and gain satisfaction with a few things, you’re on your way. Nature abhors a vacuum. If you empty yourself out and get rid of all the extraneous useless shit, what really belongs there will arrive by means of a mysterious magnetics. All the laws of Nature that we have are simply observations that have been made by someone and agreed upon by many. There are far more laws of Nature out there and in there that are generally unknown. That doesn’t mean they are not in operation. It is the nature of Nature to reveal these things to the sincere and persistent. There are some number of powerful and unseen forces that are ever ready to help those who are willing to align themselves with the proper course.
If… I say, if… there are realized masters and immortal entities about don’t you think they’ve seen it all? Can you imagine they would be moved in any way by our vain posturings or presumptions of personal knowledge and worth? Ecclesiastes is always worth another look; “vanity, all is vanity”. Never imagine that you’re not being watched all the time, especially these days (grin).
The whole tawdry scene is arranged to give you the impression that the power lies in certain locations. It does not. It’s all set up to make you fearful of chimera and ghosts, insubstantial lifeforms that are nothing but shadows. Without the light there could be no shadows. In occult lore there are cosmic factions called ‘the superiors’ and ‘the inferiors’. If one could properly understand what is being said in the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, you wouldn’t need any other input.
Okay, enough for today; the mind, the mind, the mind. Next time we’ll go to that other location.

Dr. STEPHEN J. SNIEGOSKI
Thomas Mahl’s taboo-shattering book presents “the story of the covert operations mounted by British intelligence to involve the United States in World War II and destroy isolationism. These operations profoundly changed America forever, helping it become the global power we see today — a power whose foreign policy leaders were freed to make, after the war, a multitude of global commitments unhampered by any significant isolationist opposition.”

MANDELA THE SPOOK [aangirfan]
Mandela originally aligned himself with the African National Congress a Communist revolutionary group heavily influenced and financed by Zionist Jews. This organization would be responsible for all sorts of atrocities in South Africa which eventually led to Mandela’s time in jail. Mandela co-founded the militant wing of the ANC with various South African Communists including an Israeli Jew by the name of Arthur Goldreich. The group was called Umkhonto we Sizwe or Spear of the Nation. It is important to note that the ANC not only attacked official government buildings but even non-government targets like movie theatres as well. It was this activity that made it easy for several countries including the United States to label the ANC as a terrorist organization. Mandela himself was even on the U.S. terrorist watch list until 2008. Fun facts about Mandela such as these are completely ignored by all of the big media outlets because it runs contrary to the portrait they are trying to paint…
Jewish Editor: ‘Mandela was Moses’

The very powers that ardently support Israel’s apartheid state are the ones shedding the most crocodile tears at the passing of Nelson Mandela. Where were their tears and support when he sat in prison for 27 years? Where are their tears for the thousands of Palestinians who perished under Israel’s occupation of their land?

from the New York Times, June 10th 1990
The Central Intelligence Agency played an important role in the arrest in 1962 of Nelson Mandela, the African National Congress leader who was jailed for nearly 28 years before his release four months ago, a news report says.
The intelligence service, using an agent inside the African National Congress, provided South African security officials with precise information about Mr. Mandela’s activities that enabled the police to arrest him, said the account by the Cox News Service.
The report, scheduled for publication on Sunday, quoted an unidentified retired official who said that a senior C.I.A. officer told him shortly after Mr. Mandela’s arrest: ”We have turned Mandela over to the South African Security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be.”
Mark Mansfield, a spokesman for the agency, declined to comment on the news-service report. ”As a matter of policy, we do not discuss allegations of intelligence activities,” he said.

CIA Central In Mandela’s Arrest … Kept Him On Terrorist List Until 2008

Mandela: a Dissenting Opinion

‘Marine A’ Alexander Blackman jailed for at least 10 years for executing injured Afghan prisoner –Judge Advocate General Jeff Blackett says he ‘treated Afghan man with contempt and murdered him in cold blood’ –‘You were obliged to care for him but instead you executed him’ 06 Dec 2013 The Royal Marine convicted of murdering a wounded Taliban prisoner will serve at least 10 years in prison after he was given a life sentence by a court martial today. Sergeant Alexander Blackman, 39, was sentenced at a hearing in Bulford, Wiltshire, one day after a ban on identifying him was lifted by a High Court ruling. The serviceman – known during the hearing as ‘Marine A’ – was filmed shooting the injured man and telling him ‘shuffle off this mortal coil, you c***’ during a tour of duty in Helmand province in September 2011. Blackman has been dismissed with disgrace from the Royal Marines.
Obama’s Rogue Agenda by Stephen Lendman
“You should draw lines around organizations that would cut the heads off of children to prove their political point,” Mike Rogers told National Journal Daily.”
“… Over and over, the United States allies itself with Sunni terrorists and their Saudi sponsors. ….”
LANGLEY, VA—A report released Tuesday by the CIA’s Office of the Inspector General revealed that the CIA has mistakenly obscured hundreds of thousands of pages of critical intelligence information with black highlighters.
According to the report, sections of the documents— “almost invariably the most crucial passages”—are marred by an indelible black ink that renders the lines impossible to read, due to a top-secret highlighting policy that began at the agency’s inception in 1947.
CIA scholar Matthew Franks was forced to abandon work on a book about the Bay Of Pigs invasion after declassified documents proved nearly impossible to read.
“With all the highlighting in the documents I unearthed in the National Archives, it’s really no wonder that the invasion failed,” Franks said. “I don’t see how the field operatives and commandos were expected to decipher their orders.”
The inspector general’s report cited in particular the damage black highlighting did to documents concerning the assassination of John F. Kennedy, thousands of pages of which “are completely highlighted, from top to bottom margin.”
“It is unclear exactly why CIA bureaucrats sometimes chose to emphasize entire documents,” the report read. “Perhaps the documents were extremely important in every detail, or the agents, not unlike college freshmen, were overwhelmed by the reading material and got a little carried away.”
Also unclear is why black highlighters were chosen in the first place. Some blame it on the closed, elite culture of the CIA itself. A former CIA officer speaking on the condition of anonymity said highlighting documents with black pens was a common and universal practice.
“It seemed counterintuitive, but the higher-ups didn’t know what they were doing,” the ex-officer said. “I was once ordered to feed documents into a copying machine in order to make backups of some very important top-secret records, but it turned out to be some sort of device that cut the paper to shreds.”

Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes
“MarineLink reports that a fuel cell-powered, unmanned aerial system (UAS) aircraft has been successfully launched from the submerged ‘USS Providence’ (SSN 719). The drone flew a several-hour mission demonstrating live video capabilities streamed back to the submarine, offering a pathway to providing mission critical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to the U.S. Navy’s submarine force. ‘Developing disruptive technologies and quickly getting them into the hands of our sailors is what our SwampWorks program is all about,’ says Craig A. Hughes, Acting Director of Innovation at the Office of Naval Research. ‘This demonstration really underpins ONR’s dedication and ability to address emerging fleet priorities.’ The XFC UAS — eXperimental Fuel Cell Unmanned Aerial System — was fired from the submarine’s torpedo tube using a ‘Sea Robin’ launch vehicle system designed to fit within an empty Tomahawk launch canister (TLC) used for launching Tomahawk cruise missiles already familiar to submarine sailors. Once deployed from the TLC, the Sea Robin launch vehicle with integrated XFC rose to the ocean surface, where it appeared as a spar buoy. Upon command of Providence’s Commanding Officer, the XFC then vertically launched from Sea Robin and flew a successful mission.”

Videos about Sandy Hook
“When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.” — Nelson Mandela
We’re coming up on the anniversary of what is supposedly one of the largest mass shootings by a single person in US history. I doubted the experiences of eyewitnesses to the Batman shooting earlier that year, but when I saw “grieving father” Robbie Parker obviously get in character to speak to the press (around 18:20 of the first video) I knew for sure these guys were actors. So are the most prominent victims of the Boston Bombings. Anyway, here are 3 more videos on the subject, the last two speaking about the recently released 911 tapes they tried to block from release for almost a year because it might upset the parents (except they never seem all that upset). I think it’s because those tapes didn’t exist until long after the supposed shootings. Sure, they can expose us to all manner of graphic images for propaganda purposes, like people jumping out of the Twin Towers and Jeff Bauman’s shredded leg bone, but that’s because they actually had the footage, which apparently in this age of iPhones and surveillance cameras they didn’t at Sandy Hook.

Despite the Obama administration’s fiendish efforts to censor the truth, Special Agent John Dodson, one of the key ATF whistleblowers who exposed the “Fast and Furious” plot to arm Mexican drug cartels, recently offered more explosive insight into the deadly scheme. In addition to further demolishing the bogus “botched-investigation” narrative peddled by the embattled administration and its allies in the establishment press, Dodson also shed light on various elements of the gun-running operation that disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder and the president have been conspiring to keep secret. — The New America
Obama war chiefs widen drone kill box –Lethality of collateral damage ‘must not be excessive’ 03 Dec 2013 The Pentagon has loosened its guidelines on avoiding civilian casualties during drone strikes, modifying instructions from requiring military personnel to “ensure” civilians are not targeted to encouraging service members to “avoid targeting” civilians. In addition, instructions now tell commanders that collateral damage “must not be excessive” in relation to mission goals, according to Public Intelligence, a nonprofit research group that analyzed the military’s directives on drone strikes. Because drone strikes are classified operations, the U.S. typically does not acknowledge when they occur, or reveal how many combatants and civilians are killed or injured.
Guantánamo Bay detainees claim Poland allowed CIA torture —Terror suspects subjected to extraordinary rendition tell European court of human rights they were waterboarded 03 Dec 2013 Lawyers for two men subject to extraordinary rendition by the CIA told the European court of human rights (ECHR) on Tuesday that Poland, which permitted a secret “black” site to operate on its territory, should be held responsible for their torture. The two-day hearing at Strasbourg was the first time a European country has been taken to court for allowing US agencies to carry out “enhanced” interrogation and “waterboarding” programmes. In a highly unusual legal move, the media and public were barred from the opening day’s session.

- White House changes Obama’s story on the president’s ties to his uncle Onyanga Obama. Once he knew him, then he didn’t, now he knows him again. What else is Obama unclear about? Read The Manufacturing of a President.
- Dick Cheney believed and still believes that Nelson Mandela was a terrorist. U.S. media forgets that Mandela and his ANC were on the U.S. terrorist list, a stance backed by both Republicans and Democrats. Cheney doesn’t know what a terrorist looks like, because he fails to see one when he looks into a mirror.
- If you liked Reagan’s Contras I, you’ll just love Obama’s Contras II. Back by popular demand at Langley, the Nicaraguan terrorist Contras!

Veteran ABC News anchor Howard K. Smith was fired by CBS after he reported a CONSPIRACY between the KKK and Birmingham, AL police. Ed Murrow also believed in the conspiracy but he had already quit CBS. I’ll be counted among Murrow and Smith as a “CONSPIRACY” reporter any day of the week.
Nothing has changed from the days when shills like Paley, Salant, and Stanton ran CBS News. Laurence Tisch completed the emaciation of CBS News in the 80s when he purged all the remaining Murrow and Cronkite reporters leaving us with “What’s the frequency Kenneth?” Dan Rather.
