Winnie the Pooh, Carlos Castenada, Psychedelic Drugs, Cartesian Paradigm, etc.


  1. A. Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. The rest of Christopher Robin Milne’s toys, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo and Tigger, were incorporated into Milne’s stories.

Christopher Robin’s toy bear is on display at the Main Branch of the New York Public Library in New York City.[4]

Harry Colebourn and Winnie, 1914

Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and “Pooh”, a swan they had met while on holiday. The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War.[5] He named the bear “Winnie” after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

“Winnie” was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much loved attraction there.[6] Pooh the swan appears as a character in its own right in When We Were Very Young.

In the first chapter of Winnie-the-Pooh, Milne offers this explanation of why Winnie-the-Pooh is often called simply “Pooh”:

But his arms were so stiff … they stayed up straight in the air for more than a week, and whenever a fly came and settled on his nose he had to blow it off. And I think – but I am not sure – that that is why he is always called Pooh.

Ashdown Forest: the setting for the stories


‘Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.’

-A. A. Milne

‘If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.’
-A. A. Milne

‘If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.’

-A. A. Milne

‘Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.’

-A. A. Milne

‘I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.’

-A. A. Milne

‘People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.’

-A. A. Milne

Piglet: “Pooh, how do you spell love?”

Pooh: “Oh Piglet, you don’t spell love… you feel it.”

-A. A. Milne

‘Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.’

-A. A. Milne

‘Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.’

-A. A. Milne

Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.

-A. A. Milne


A few years earlier, Christopher Milne recruited Pooh to help in the campaign for the survival of Ashdown Forest, which was then being threatened by the proposed ravages of a major exploration by British Petroleum. It was intolerable for Christopher that such wild, wooded English countryside, once the hunting ground of Kings, should come under the threat of so-called ‘progress and development.’ Happily, the 100 Acre Wood was saved for posterity.


Pooh and the Philosophers is a 1995 book by John Tyerman Williams, purporting to show how all of Western philosophy from the last 3,000 years was a long preparation for Winnie the Pooh.



Firstly, leftover matters from the previous post, where Ghostwheel (my thanks for the contribution) wrote this :

Ghostwheel says:

Ulvfugl, I have a question for you that requires you to draw upon your experience of “non-ordinary” consciousness or reality. I’m using the term that Carlos Castenada used, but I don’t want to get hung up on definitions. I was going to say “spiritual,” but I figured you’d like that even less. There are also those who refer to different “vibrational levels” or “planes or attunement” and whatnot. I don’t know what to call it, but I understand you have experience with “that,” whatever “that” is defined as or taken to be.

What’s the question?

There are persons who believe that at least a part of the evil here on earth is a result of malevolent “non-material” entities from other “dimensions.”

(It’s tough to figure out how to phrase this, because I know if use clumsy phraseology or inexact definitions, you’ll jump on them. The problem is that I don’t know what terms or definitions I can use that aren’t clumsy or inexact in some way or another.)

One of the best known ancient expressions of this view comes from Ephesians 6:12:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

“Principalities” and “powers” refer to orders of angels, in this case fallen angels, but I’m not specifically asking about Christianity here. If these malevolent entities exist, it seems likely that each tradition has a different take on them.

A more modern take is that of David Icke, who believes that there are evil non-human entities active in human affairs. His view, as I understand it, is that if you raise your “level of attunement” you can learn to see them, in which case they appear like reptiles. (Doesn’t mean they’re literally reptiles; that’s just the image that registers to a developed faculty of heightened perception. If I understand him correctly.)

Anyway, that’s easily enough to understand the basic question here. I wonder if you’ve encountered any of these malevolent nonhuman entities (principalities, powers, reptilians, whatever), what that was like, and if you think these entities have some kind of beachhead here on earth. It would explain a very great deal.

Ghostwheel’s comment touches upon many fascinating points. I’ll make an attempt at addressing some of them and see how it rolls out.

Many years ago I read all of the Carlos Castenada books and much of the related spin-off literature.

I found the earlier ones riveting and they had an enormous impact upon me and my outlook, but the later ones seemed to become increasingly far fetched and silly.

As I understand it, they can all be classified as ‘fiction’, in the sense that the author invented the stories, and pretended to present them as ‘factual’, i.e. descriptions of actual events, as a sort of literary device.

There’s nothing wrong with that. I mean, many great books have been presented in the ‘true story’ format, and people love to get into a state that suspends their ‘everyday reality’ and enter other realms, such as theatre or cinema, where they can temporarily explore alternatives worldviews.

Perhaps Castenada can be considered as a kind of modern shaman, and shamans have frequently also been tricksters.

This raises the intriguing philosophical question as to what, if anything, then separates fact and fiction.

I’ve attempted to explore that issue in some earlier essays here, so I’m not going to return to that angle now, just to say that ‘the truth’ is a very tricky issue and difficult to pin down. You know, we have the Correspondence Theory, where a statement is supposed to correspond with some observed  state of affairs, but if you dig it’s not that simple.

1.1 Metaphysical and Semantic Versions

In medieval authors we find a division between “metaphysical” and “semantic” versions of the correspondence theory. The former are indebted to the truth-as-likeness theme suggested by Aristotle’s overall views, the latter are modeled on Aristotle’s more austere definition from Metaphysics 1011b25.

I suspect that Castenada knew all that, was  taught it at University, and spotted an interesting (and lucrative) opening to exploit.

The fact v. fiction dichotomy has a very interesting relationship with the sane v. crazy dichotomy. I mean, psychiatrists are supposed to be specialist  ‘doctors of the mind’ who classify pathological and healthy mentalities and outlooks. But if you dig into that can of worms, again, it’s not nearly as simple as it might appear. That’s not to say that I don’t accept that there is a real division between sanity and madness, just that it is a fascinating boundary to consider, and appears to be culturally conditioned.

You know, just because a majority of people believe some stuff and follow some behaviours, it does not follow that they are sane, wise or correct. Perhaps the Aztecs would pass judgement upon our contemporary life in UK, for failing to honour Creation by regular human sacrifice ?

Perhaps we have just switched the scene, and are blind to the sacrifices, like abortion of babies and deaths in car crashes, which are generally accepted these days.

We think, or believe, or are taught, that we are morally superior, more civilised and advanced, because we don’t permit those practices of ritualised murder to honour various deities.

But then, if you study anthropology and related subjects, the range of behaviours that have been practiced, related to various belief systems, is immense. This is a topic that has puzzled me a lot over the years, caused a lot of anguish and grief.

As a very small impressionable child, I was taught by Roman Catholic nuns, the ones who dress like penguins, who used to sprinkle us with Holy Water and mumble  Latin incantations.

Then came a Quaker period, supposedly the SAME religion or belief system, but about as different as you can get. Then a State school with daily ‘Church of England’ type religious services, which were totally different to the Catholic and Quaker stuff.

It was very confusing and bewildering. Then came the agnostic and atheist influences, and then came the Flower Power Hippy Revolution, so called, with licentiousness, pot and LSD. Well, that was just a few highlights, but the result was that I became utterly confused, because if I tried to please one lot and conform to their teachings, I’d be breaking the rules of another lot. The stress of it all caused me to have a complete mental meltdown.

Zen buddhism helped me to pull out of that and restore some inner integrity, balance and serenity. I should add, it was one brand or flavour, Dogen’s Soto Zen, a particular tradition. There are many others, and anyway, it should really be called Zen Buddhism-Taoism, because the influence and input from the Taoist schools and sects has been very significant.

This takes us in a circle back to Carlos Castenada, whom, if I recall correctly, got a lot of his stuff from a Tai Chi master he met in USA.

When there are so many and varied belief systems to choose from, how do you decide which one is right, correct, the best for you ? This is the essence of the postmodern dilemma. Humans didn’t used to have this option. They either accepted what everyone around them believed, their local tribal heritage, or if they objected and rejected it, they’d likely be ostracised or killed. This is still happening all the time, for example Muslim girls in Africa and elsewhere who reject female genital mutilation, etc.

Anyway, back to Ghostwheel’s comment, and ‘spiritual’. I have no objection to that word, it’s quite a useful term that can be used to distinguish between the solid tangible domains – the stuff that leaves you with a bruise if you collide hard with it – and the invisible immaterial domains, such as emotions, fantasies and dreams.

As I understand it, the real significance of the term goes back to Descartes (1596–1650) and the early days of science, as the secular thinkers wrestled to get free from ‘superstition’ and the institutional power of the Catholic Church. The scientists were permitted to experiment upon ‘material stuff’, just so long as they left the ‘spiritual stuff’ alone, considered as being God’s realm and the sole business of the Church.

Some people consider that this division, between the spiritual and the material, the sacred and the profane, is what has led to the success of Western civilisation. If it can indeed be considered as being ‘successful’ ? Dissenters will take an opposite view and consider it the source of most, if not all, evils that are wrong with the world today.

This takes us onto some tricky terrain. The divides between different civilisations and belief systems are stark. As exemplified by Colonel Pat Lang stating his view that The Buddha was ‘mentally ill’ ?!

I mean, Lang has had enormous experience in the Middle East and iirc holds rank as an advisor re the Holy Sites. He’s not a frivolous or shallow fellow, so what to make of that remark ?

Imo, the man who is called The Buddha had an immensely powerful mind and left an enormous body of thought and lectures, one of the most impressive legacies from the ancient world. He’s nothing like people I’ve known who were clearly ‘mentally ill’ (admittedly definition of ‘mental illness’ is another can of worms.)

And, from the Christian tradition, what are we to make of ‘Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”)’

Did he really die upon the Cross feeling like his God, his Father in Heaven, had abandoned him ?

There are the ancient esoteric tales that he did not really die, but survived and travelled to Kashmir, or to France. Perhaps it doesn’t even matter, because some of the more sophisticated theological conceptions permit a Living Christ which you can encounter in your inner being if you seek with diligence and sincerity.

Anyway, to attempt to steer back in the direction of Ghostwheel’s points.

There are the materialists and atheists who do not ‘believe in’ anything immaterial or spiritual of any kinds. Me, having had experience of all manner of drugs, psylocybin, LSD, cannabis, etc (almost all of the psychedelic variety, I was interested in insights and mind expansion, and also something to relieve Cluster Headache) and having done various meditation techniques for many decades, I KNOW that there are the ‘non material domains’.

I also know that there are many people whose scope or range of consciousness  is very limited or restricted and  for whom this kind of notion makes no sense at all. For them, it simply does not exist.

Some people will insist that these realms or experiences cannot be, because they themselves have never experienced anything like that. Some people will insist that they never dream at night when they sleep. We differ. But, if you are really interested and determined, than you can discover and research for yourself and have your own direct experiences which remove all doubt.

So, what do these ‘non material domains’ mean ? What is their significance and how should we understand them, and within what context ?

If it’s a Western psychological medical context, you’ll likely be labelled as suffering from some delusion or mental imbalance. Because that tradition derives from Descartes and the Cartesian view is that only the stuff which can be observed and measured exists.

As I understand it, he (Descartes) didn’t really believe that himself, he was forced to take that public stance or else the religious authorities would have shut him down. And it’s proven to be a very fruitful productive successful approach, Western materialistic science and technology is probably the dominant force of our time, globally. Although it’s hard to separate from capitalism.

Personally, I have a very low opinion of Descartes, particularly because of his attitude toward animals and the dogs he vivisected. But it was 400 years ago. Also his legacy has left us with the ludicrous illogical mind versus body paradigm, which makes no sense at all. But I’m in danger of wandering way off topic if I pursue that gripe.

One of the best known ancient expressions of this view comes from Ephesians 6:12:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

“Principalities” and “powers” refer to orders of angels, in this case fallen angels, but I’m not specifically asking about Christianity here. If these malevolent entities exist, it seems likely that each tradition has a different take on them.

A more modern take is that of David Icke, who believes that there are evil non-human entities active in human affairs. His view, as I understand it, is that if you raise your “level of attunement” you can learn to see them, in which case they appear like reptiles. (Doesn’t mean they’re literally reptiles; that’s just the image that registers to a developed faculty of heightened perception. If I understand him correctly.)

I think that the problem we have, is that a person can have a completely convincing (to themselves) insight or vision, which they then relay to others who adopt the same idea and it multiplies and spreads and persists, even though it may be dubious or provably mistaken. That’s the culture of superstition and irrationality which those who wanted a modern world built upon reason and logic and stuff that can be measured wanted to reject and discard.

We, in the West, had the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and other influences, derived from ancient Greece and Rome, which eventually produced the sort of civilisation we now inhabit, which although diverse and confused, has many common shared roots.

But then we have the weird ‘Right Brain v. Left Brain’ division.

In humans, the left hemisphere controls the grasping right hand and the bits of language that enable us to pin down meaning unambiguously. It helps us manipulate and use the world, in pursuit of our aims. The left hemisphere’s world is sharply delineated and certain, along the lines of the general’s strategy map on the command room wall, where the complexity of the world is stripped away. Yet we still need to see the essentially human world as it is before we simplify and disconnect it. A general needs to be in touch with the world in which his soldiers actually fight. The knowledge that is mediated by the left hemisphere is knowledge within a closed system. It has the advantage of perfection, but such perfection is bought ultimately at the price of emptiness.

The right hemisphere’s take on the world is far more complex and nuanced. Instead of distinct mechanisms, the right hemisphere sees interconnected, living, embodied entities. In communication the right hemisphere recognizes all that is nonverbal, metaphorical, ironic or humorous, where the left is literalistic. The right is at ease with ambiguity and the idea that opposites may be compatible.

There is a reason we have two hemispheres: We need both versions of the world.

If you read McGilchrist’s book, “The Master and his Emissary: the Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World” or even his stuff that’s free online, I think you can begin to get a clearer conception as to the roots and depth of the social divides that we observe. The divides are rooted in our strange inherited biological makeup.

I’d offer Stefan Molyneux as a typical left brain sort of guy. He demands rational tightly reasoned arguments to support a position. His opponents sometimes blow whistles and wave flags and make animal noises. They don’t understand how to build a logical argument, they go by ‘what feels right’ to them.

That doesn’t mean they are wrong. Reasoned arguments have often had to be demolished and replaced, and just because someone is inarticulate and cannot present their case like a lawyer, it does not follow that they are mistaken or have no case that needs addressing.

The answer to this dilemma is to use BOTH, the right and left brain attributes, but most people have never even heard of this stuff, let alone studied it, so there’s no chance of that happening in the public discourse, where the human herds collide, chant, yell and assault the opponents, as they struggle for supremacy.

Ghostwheel offered that fascinating quote from Ephesians

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

By switching the paradigm, it’s possible to see this as a description of our biological heritage. Perhaps. This is what it feels like to be carrying millions of years of genetic inheritance. With a thin fragile veneer of modern civilised indoctrination, as to what is considered decent, ethical and honourable, overlaid upon our basic animal.

    Hats off to MOA> this is why I keep coming back to see you, you are a sharpie fersure.

    Both FB and google ads and adwords etc. are a huge scam. I knew this for as early as 2009. At that time I ran some ads on fb and all of the sudden there was huge activity on my fb page. This went on for a few months. Then I paused the campaign. Overnight, all my fb “friends” and “followers” died. No more comments, no more likes. Years later it was revealed that fb and the rest of them have thousands of trolls in the phillipines, India, Bang, etc. who pass their days liking this and following that. Now of course, they have bots do do it.

    As for goog adwords, its also a scam. If youre not on the first page, forget it. The whole “millions of impressions” and “clicks” bullshit always struck me as an advertising space seller’s con because unlike an ad in a paper rag like the NYT, the client can never be sure he gets what he is really paying for…

    Now, fb, goog and youtube are censoring or demonitizing truthstream media, wearechange, etc.

    Folks need to head over to dtube, a peer to peer analog to youtube that is alt media friendly and is connected to steemit.

    As Hurricane Irma looks to be hurdling straight for a direct hit on Southern Florida, meteorologists from Weather Underground are warning that the most devastating impacts of the storm could be felt much further north in towns along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina where the storm surge could be a catastrophic 20-28 feet high in certain areas. To put that in perspective, Hurricane Katrina in 2005 set a record for the largest storm surge ever recorded along the U.S. coast at 27.8 feet.

    Credit-reporting company Equifax shocked investors, and more than a third of America, when it announced on Thursday afternoon that hackers had breached its data systems, compromising the personal information of approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. The information accessed “primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.” In other words, pretty much everything that should have been hidden behind an n-number of firewalls, is now available to the dark net’s highest bidder.

    The company, which in delightful irony offers credit-monitoring and identity-theft protection products to “guard consumers’ personal information”, said that it had learned of the incident on July 29, 2017, at which point it reported the intrusion to law enforcement and contracted a cybersecurity firm to conduct a forensic review: based on the company’s investigation, the unauthorized access occurred from mid-May through July 2017. Oddly enough, it took shareholders and over a third of America, more than a month longer to learn that all their personal data may have been compromised.

    I am being sued for libel in the High Court in England by Jake Wallis Simons, Associate Editor of the Daily Mail Online. Mr Wallis Simons is demanding £40k in damages and the High Court has approved over £100k in costs for Mark Lewis, Mr Wallis Simons’ lawyer. I may become liable for all of this should I lose the case, and furthermore I have no money to pay for my defence. I am currently a defendant in person. This case has the potential to bankrupt me and blight the lives of my wife and children. I have specifically been threatened by Mr Lewis with bankruptcy. Mr Wallis Simons boasts on his website:

    In 2015, I published a series of articles exposing Jeremy Corbyn’s links with anti-Semitic figures, and this led to what is now known as the “Labour anti-Semitism scandal.”

    According to Facebook, 470 ‘inauthentic’ accounts ‘likely operated out of Russia’ by a ‘troll farm,’ bought roughly 3,000 ads for $100k, mostly in 2015, which spread mind-altering propaganda, infecting the malleable minds of pindo voters.

    Netanyahu himself was recently caught on a hot mic bragging that Israel had struck Syrian targets at least “a dozen times”. And this is to say nothing of Israel’s covert support to al-Qaeda linked groups in Syria’s south, which has reportedly involved weapons transfers and treatment of wounded jihadists in Israeli hospitals, the latter which was widely promoted in photo ops involving Netanyahu himself. As even former Acting Director of the CIA Michael Morell once directly told the Israeli public, Israel’s “dangerous game” in Syria consists in getting in bed with al-Qaeda in order to fight Shia Iran.

    Indeed Assad has not taken the bait for years now. While pro-government Syrians have themselves at times complained about Israel’s seeming ability to strike inside sovereign Syrian territory with impunity, Assad has the long-game in mind of “survival now, retaliation later”. It was clear from the start that Israel’s attacks on largely non-strategic targets were more about provocation: should Damascus lob missiles back in Israel’s direction Netanyahu would launch an all-out assault while Syria was at its weakest in the midst of a grinding and externally funded al-Qaeda insurgency.

    Israel has also been careful to frame its actions in terms of counter-terror strikes on Hezbollah targets for the sake of maintaining an air of legitimacy to its aggression. But as the Astana agreement demonstrates (a strategic victory for Russia-Iran-Syria), Syria’s ability to absorb Israel’s repeat provocations seems to be part of a strategic “waiting game” born of an accurate self assessment of past and current vulnerabilities. As The Century Foundation concludes:

    Syria’s contemporary leaders seem to have adopted a simplified version of the “long breath strategy” of the former president—and father of Syria’s current leader—Hafez al Assad. This strategy was named for Syria’s ability to draw a deep breath and weather short-term pain and setbacks in pursuit of a better deal.
    And this strategy seems to be working, resulting in a shift in perspective which is even beginning to permeate at least part of the Israeli defense establishment:

    A formerly very high-placed source in Israel’s security system spoke to Al-Monitor last week. He said on condition of anonymity, “It’s high time to admit that perhaps all our assessments were erroneous. The prevailing consensus of the last five years was that Syria will never return to its former state. We thought that however this turns out, the Syrian state as we knew it had passed from the world. But evidently we were wrong.”

    Israel’s top decision-makers have not changed course, but it is likely that such arguments are heard in private discussions, and top-secret intelligence assessments see it as a real possibility that Assad is capable of outsmarting those who prematurely eulogized him and Syria as we knew it.

    “Syria is returning, that is clear now,” said the source. “It’s not about the quantity of territory, it’s about central rule. If nothing unexpected happens, in the near future, Assad will be declared the final, unequivocal winner of this war. Following that, the path to Syria’s rebuilding and reconstruction will be short.”
    Concerning Israel’s adventurist military action this week, contrary to the claims of unnamed “Israeli officials” who say the latest attack was against a branch of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC), it is likely that this week’s air strike was yet another “routine” attack on a Hezbollah weapons depot.

    The destruction of cultural heritage by ISUS…..

    Remember when the jew run media ran videos of ISUS destroying cultural heritage sites in Syria and other Arabic countries, and pretended to be outraged?

    Well how stupid are you GOYIM not to see that ISUS IS DOING THE SAME THING IN AMERICA?


    The ‘nazi jews want whites and all white culture DEAD! Look around you, stupid GOYIM!

    More than four decades ago I went to lunch with a diplomatic historian who, like me, was going through Korea-related documents at the National Archives in Washington. He happened to remark that he sometimes wondered whether the Korean Demilitarised Zone might be ground zero for the end of the world. This April, Kim In-ryong, a North Korean diplomat at the UN, warned of ‘a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment’.

    A few days later, President Trump told Reuters that ‘we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea.’ American atmospheric scientists have shown that even a relatively contained nuclear war would throw up enough soot and debris to threaten the global population: ‘A regional war between India and Pakistan, for instance, has the potential to dramatically damage Europe, the US and other regions through global ozone loss and climate change.’ How is it possible that we have come to this? How does a puffed-up, vainglorious narcissist, whose every other word may well be a lie (that applies to both of them, Trump and Kim Jong-un), come not only to hold the peace of the world in his hands but perhaps the future of the planet? We have arrived at this point because of an inveterate unwillingness on the part of Americans to look history in the face and a laser-like focus on that same history by the leaders of North Korea.

    A huge genetic study that sought to pinpoint how the human genome is evolving suggests that natural selection is getting rid of harmful genetic mutations that shorten people’s lives. The work, published in PLoS Biology1, analysed DNA from 215,000 people and is one of the first attempts to probe directly how humans are evolving over one or two generations.

    To identify which bits of the human genome might be evolving, researchers scoured large US and UK genetic databases for mutations whose prevalence changed across different age groups. For each person, the parents’ age of death was recorded as a measure of longevity, or their own age in some cases.

    “If a genetic variant influences survival, its frequency should change with the age of the surviving individuals,” says Hakhamanesh Mostafavi, an evolutionary biologist at Columbia University in New York City who led the study. People who carry a harmful genetic variant die at a higher rate, so the variant becomes rarer in the older portion of the population.

    One day after Equifax announced (more than one month after it itself had learned) that its systems had been hacked, resulting in up to 143 million social security numbers, names, addresses, driver’s license data, birth dates, some credit card numbers and pretty much all other critical personal data being leaked and currently for sale somewhere on the dark web, the company whose job is, ironically, to protect the credit and personal information of hundreds of millions of Americans has been hit with a monster class-action lawsuit seeking as much as $70 billion.

    In retrospect, we find it surprising that it wasn’t multi-trillion lawsuit in light of the galactic stupidity exhibited by a company whose server apparently had zero firewalls from the internet and where any hacker could get access to the most confidential information available.

    Washington remains the Mecca for this bus-throwing sport. So many people are being thrown under the buses that it is creating a crisis for the Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). With dozens of buses in the repair yards for front axle replacement, it’s hard to keep an adequate sized fleet on the streets. Moreover, the bus drivers are suffering from low morale. Their training doesn’t prepare them for the stressful situation they now face routinely. For example, when you see a well-dressed individual in the grasp of an official-looking guy with19-inch biceps, should you brake – or should you speed-up and expedite the elimination of a redundant public figure?

    The drivers’ union also has raised the question of whether it would not be more efficient for all parties concerned to throw these outcasts under Metro subway trains.

    New DNA evidence uncovered by researchers at Uppsala University and Stockholm University shows that there were in fact female Viking warriors. The remains of an iconic Swedish Viking Age grave now reveal that war was not an activity exclusive to males – women could be found in the higher ranks at the battlefield.

    The study was conducted on one of the most well-known graves from the Viking Age, a mid-10th century grave in Swedish Viking town Birka. The burial was excavated in the 1880s, revealing remains of a warrior surrounded by weapons, including a sword, armour-piercing arrows, and two horses. There was also a full set of gaming pieces and a gaming board.

    The morphology of some skeletal traits have long suggested that she was a woman, but since this grave has been the type specimen for a Viking warrior for over a century, it has always been assumed to have belonged to a male Viking. Now, geneticists, archaeogeneticists and archaeologists have worked together and solved the mystery. DNA retrieved from the skeleton demonstrates that the individual carried two X chromosomes and no Y chromosome.

    “This is the first formal and genetic confirmation of a female Viking warrior,” says Professor Mattias Jakobsson at Uppsala University’s Department of Organismal Biology.

    Isotope analyses confirm a travelling life style, well in tune with the martial society that dominated 8th to 10th century Northern Europe.

    Prosecutors have given Imran Awan a copy of the hard drive of a House laptop that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to keep law enforcement from looking at, court filings show, suggesting prosecutors intend to bring charges related to the underlying cybersecurity and theft probe.

    The hard-drive copy was included in discovery even though the Florida Democrat has said the laptop contains House information on it and is a government-paid work computer, and even though Imran was fired and banned from the House network because of suspected cybersecurity violations.

    Imran left the laptop, with the username RepDWS, in a phone booth in circumstances that suggest that it was not accidentally forgotten there.

    The bizarre refusal of members of Congress to criticize Imran no matter how many suspicious actions are tied to him raises questions about whether members may be afraid that he could release their emails if they assist in his prosecution, or that some could implicated in a kickbacks scheme involving disappearing equipment and ghost employees.

    David Damron, a spokesman for the Florida lawmaker, declined to tell The Daily Caller News Foundation why Wasserman Schultz would still be so adamant the allegations against Imran were made up even after Imran apparently took her laptop late at night and left it where it would be found, alongside other seemingly carefully curated evidence.

    Both of these illustrations would have to wait a further two hundred years until palaeontologist Beverly Halstead rediscovered these early works and recognised the giant thigh bone/scrotum as the femur of a theropod dinosaur and one of the earliest surviving depictions of a dinosaur fossil (Ibid.). Sadly the original specimen is lost.

    NASA has reported a huge solar flare was emitted by the Sun and it is the most powerful one since 2006.

    This solar flare has already caused some radio blackouts on Earth and it may cause aurora visible as far south as London. On the morning of September 6, scientists watched as two X-flares were unleashed by the sun.

    According to NASA, the flares were emitted from an active region of the Sun known as AR 2673. This region also emitted a mid-level flare on September 4, 2017. But scientists say the timing of these big flares is rather odd as the Sun is currently heading towards the quieter period of its 11-year solar cycle known as solar minimum. This cycle began in 2008, with solar minimum expected in the next couple of years.

    Why would Hezbollah or Syria allow ISIS to be shoved into Iraq? Weird. Not one poster noted this, but I will– American POTUS’ ceasing to fund/arm ISIS made all of this possible. If he hadnt pulled support? Syria would be in same shape today as under Obama vis a vis ISIS. NOT “defending Trump” just stating logistical fact.
    Great Syrian Army prevailed! But if Putin hadnt persuaded Trump & Co to dump support for the NATO death squads, we’d still be in stalemate.

    ISIS was not funded/supported by US but by US proxies, ie Gulf countries plus Turkey. The US had disengaged from Syrian fighters in a way that Biden was able to blame Saudi and Turkey. Most likely Obama and Biden were not informed what the CIA and allied secret services were doing for “plausible deniability”

    ISIS occupied a lot of the oil rich parts of Syria and Iraq. The main blow to ISIS economy was when Russia stopped oil sales to Turkey.

    It is very unlikely that Trump stopped Saudi support for ISIS as he is trying to form an anti-Iran axis of Arab states plus Israel in the Middle East.

    What stopped ISIS was Russia, Iranian, Iraqi Shiite militias, Lebanese Hezbollah and Kurdish fighters. Plus the resilience of the Syrian state without none of this could have succeeded.

    Add the inability of the US to officially support Sunni independence if represented by ISIS. The US can officially support the independence of Kurdish people which will be the next Middle East conflict.

    Trump did not change foreign policy except shifting power from the CIA to the military. I am afraid that might be a change from Obama’s “intelligent wars” back to the “stupid wars”.

    Researchers from Poland, Norway and Germany, who used fossil bone remains from 38 bear populations in mathematical models, said warmer winters since the last ice age had been a key factor in slashing their reproductive rates.
    Paradoxically, female bears expended more body-fat energy to survive winters in slumber instead of hibernating more deeply and giving birth successfully, they wrote in the Scientific Reports journal.
    Europe’s first local brown bear extinctions had occurred between 7,000 and 5,000 years ago – in southwestern Europe.
    Large-scale extinctions, also extending to the British Isles, began 2,000 years ago during the Roman Empire, suggesting complex impacts of humans and climate change.

    If you still have your solar viewing glasses from the eclipse, now is a good time to slap them on and look up at the sun. You’ll see two big dark areas visible on our star. These massive sunspots are regions of intense and complicated magnetic fields that can produce solar flares – bursts of high-energy radiation. You can just make them out with solar viewing glasses, but they’re better viewed through a solar telescope.

    Here’s what’s happened so far

    On September 4, the sun started sputtering. A moderately large flare (classified as an M5.5) erupted at approximately 18:30 UTC. It produced a coronal mass ejection aimed at Earth.

    The sun continued to flare on September 5. A solar energetic particle event from the previous day’s activity arrived at the Earth, where it likely affected radio communications as well as the health of satellite systems.

    On September 6, the sun produced two massive X-class flares. This is the category for the strongest of all solar flares.

    For me, the paranoia made sense. For the last three years I had been investigating the grassroots crypto tech accessories at the heart of today’s powerful privacy movement: internet anonymizers, encrypted chat apps, untraceable drop boxes for whistleblowers, and super-secure operating systems that even the NSA supposedly couldn’t crack. These tools were promoted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, hackers, whistleblowers, and the biggest and most credible names in the privacy trade—from Edward Snowden to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union. Apps like Tor and Signal promised to protect users from America’s all-seeing surveillance apparatus. And the cryptographers and programmers who built these people’s crypto weapons? Well, many of them claimed to live on the edge: subversive crypto-anarchists fighting The Man, pursued and assailed by shadowy U.S. government forces. Citing harassment, some of them had fled the United States altogether, forced to live in self-imposed exile in Berlin.

    At least that’s how they saw themselves. My reporting revealed a different reality. As I found out by digging through financial records and FOIA requests, many of these self-styled online radicals were actually military contractors, drawing salaries with benefits from the very same U.S. national security state they claimed to be fighting.

    And so Clinton and Blair and Brown re-launched the left, or murdered it, depending on your point of view, with their new idea. Leave wealth with the wealthy and give the poor debt. Free the financial world from silly FDR-era restraints and irksome, stupid regulations and allow a rising tide of debt to float all boats.

    And so long as you could convince others, and believe yourself, as that arch fool Brown declared, that he had left behind boom and bust, then all was good. The rich were no longer assailed for being rich nor asked to give any of it up, to those less well off. In fact the new politics needed their wealth and was in fact tailor made for them to become much more wealthy. The poor would be given debt as a substitute for wealth. They would feel wealthier, and would indeed have more to spend. And as long as house prices grew faster than their debt payments, and the stock market made every GDP figure larger and more endlessly fabulous than the last, then the debt machine would churn on and on. Debt was sugar without the calories. You could gorge without getting fat. What could go wrong? House prices were never going to go down again! Remember that?

    During the spring of 1904 a young Welshman named Evan Roberts was repeatedly awakened at 1:00 a.m. He met with God until 5:00 a.m. The Welsh revival followed. Churches were packed for prayer meetings. In a prayer meeting for young people, Pastor Joseph Jenkins asked for testimonies. A young girl named Florrie Evans, who had only been a believer a few days, rose and with a trembling voice said simply, “I love Jesus with all my heart.” The other young people’s hearts were melted. A powerful spiritual awakening that brought 100,000 people to Christ was under way.
    “The mighty and unseen breath of the Spirit was doing in a month more than centuries of legislation could accomplish” the pastor of Saint John’s-Wood Presbyterian Church declared on Sunday, January 1st, 1905 according to the London Times.The Welsh revival “had a great effect” in healing spiritual carelessness among Christians and “the growing bitterness which has accentuated our unhappy divisions”, the Bishop of Bangor declared on January 2nd, 1905. He called “congregations to meet together often for united prayer.”

    When a true revival, initiated by God occurs in the hearts of Christians, the Holy Spirit will help them to understand that it is real. For many people, the word “true” is hard to define. What is true, and what is not true is thought of as debatable. The proper understanding of what REVIVAL really is has become illusive for many. One of the best ways to define TRUE REVIVAL is to cite a positive and powerful example.
    The Welsh revival was not an orgy of emotion but a “mighty outpouring of religious fervor, bringing a whole nation to its knees at the foot of the cross in adoration and praise” (Matthews). In the midst of the events at Loughor, Roberts was asked to share his message with neighboring churches in South Wales and eventually in North Wales as well. Marvelous results were very apparent wherever he taught the Word of God.

    Versions of this song containing references to glass breasts and superlatively black crows have been collected in both Appalachia and the Ozarks. Some of these versions are diary entries dating from the time of the American civil war. Written copies of the words and the existence of multiple tunes indicate that the song was spread by broadside or newspaper publication rather than in the oral tradition.

    I find it odd that, although the song seems to be widespread, there were no commercial recordings made of it during the first old-time music golden era of the 1920s, if you exclude songs that contain only the commonest image in parting laments (lonesome doves). The numerous modern recordings are due to Tommy Jarrell (1901-1985) of Mt. Airy, NC. He inspired a whole generation of musicians who flocked to learn old-time music, including this song, from him.

    The tune given here is probably even older than the words. The pentatonic scale predates modern harmony, and so makes it hard to find guitar chords to fit the song. The G chord works fine until you get to the E note, which would seem to call for an E minor chord. When I tried that, it sounded all wrong to me, as did all other chords I know involving E, so I eventually abandoned both key signature and guitar chords when writing out the music. Banjo and/or fiddle accompaniment work fine, as does playing a dyad chord using only the E and A notes on the guitar (I couldn’t figure out how to do that). Variants of this tune appear in Irish songs such as John Barleycorn Must Die [See note 2 below].

    Cecil Sharp collected this song from Mary Sands on August 5, 1916
    Her version goes like this:

    In the ransom note, which was published on the dark web, the hackers said they were just two regular people trying to get by – and that, while they don’t want to hurt anybody, they need to monetize the information as soon as possible. They promised to delete the data as soon as the ransom was received.

    Walter Hallstein and Walther Funk are the link to furthering this imperialist agenda post WWII:

    “When Gerard Batten, a member of the European parliament with the UK Independence Party (UKIP), referred to Funk’s past in a posting on his blog, Labour Party MP Chuka Umunna described these claims as “crackpot conspiracy theories.” But are they? “Europaische Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft,” with Funk as one of the co-authors, is readily locatable today. Daniel J. Beddowes and Flavio Cipollini, who together authored a book titled The EU: The Truth About the Fourth Reich – How Hitler Won the Second World War, argue that Funk put the finishing touches on the plans for what is today the EU.

    According to Beddowes and Cipollini, “[i]t was Funk who predicted the coming of European economic unity. Funk was also Adolf Hitler’s economics minister and his key economics advisor.” The authors indicate that Hitler’s post-war plans foresaw a federalized, economically integrated European Union free of “the clutter of small nations,” and that these plans were themselves based on a belief held by Lenin, that “federation is a transitional form towards complete union of all nations.” Therefore, argue the authors, it is not by chance that the EU closely resembles Hitler’s blueprint for a unified Europe, and that most EU member-states are getting poorer while Germany is continuously getting richer.”…/231660/

    The Alt Right does not believe in the general supremacy of any race, nation, people, or sub-species. Every race, nation, people, and human sub-species has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and possesses the sovereign right to dwell unmolested in the native culture it prefers.
    Assad is defending the right of Syrians to dwell unmolested by the CIA, the Israelis, the Saudis and other foreign interlopers.

    “When ANTIFA began chanting “No Nations, No Borders…” that was a dead giveaway that the globalists were behind that engineered group.”
    I realized they were an engineered group, I just hadn’t decided specifically whose tool they were. I had no idea that was something they were saying. Yes, they are globalists aka Agenda 2050. How chilling, thank you.

    While I knew the information about having leverage and Sanders having an agreement was important, I had no idea how important! Turns out that Sanders’ criticism of Killary’s wealth was a HUGE deal. So much so, it pulled a big dog into the fight! What big dog? None other than Lynn Forester de Rothschild herself. She wrote an email of her own, championing her little wittle maligned Killary. The original email Reynolds sent is dated May 26, 2015, and Puppet Master Rothschild’s (hereinafter referred to as PM Rothschild) is dated May 28, 2015.

    The latest spin on “Russia stole the election” is that Russia used Facebook to influence the election. The NPR women yesterday were breathless about it.

    We have been subjected to ten months of propaganda about Trump/Putin election interference and still not a scrap of evidence. It is past time to ask an unasked question:

    If there were evidence, what is the big deal? All sorts of interest groups try to influence election outcomes including foreign governments.

    Why is it OK for Israel to influence US elections but not for Russia to do so?

    Why do you think the armament industry, the energy industry, agribusiness, Wall Street and the banks, pharmaceutical companies, etc., etc., supply the huge sum of money to finance election campaigns if their intent is not to influence the election?

    Why do editorial boards write editorials endorsing one candidate and damning another if they are not influencing the election?
    What is the difference between influencing the election and influencing the government?

    The orchestrated hysteria over “Russian influence” is even more absurd considering the reason Russia allegedly interfered in the election. Russia favored Trump because he was the peace candidate who promised to reduce the high tensions with Russia created by the Obama regime and its neocon nazis—Hillary Clinton, Victoria Nuland, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power. What’s wrong with Russia preferring a peace candidate over a war candidate? The American people themselves preferred the peace candidate. So Russia agreed with the electorate.

    Those who don’t agree with the electorate are the warmongers—the military/security complex and the neocon nazis. These are democracy’s enemies who are trying to overturn the choice of the American people. It is not Russia that disrespects the choice of the American people; it is the utterly corrupt Democratic National Committee and its divisive Identity Politics, the military/security complex, and the presstitute media who are undermining democracy.

    It wasn’t the Russians that influenced the elections.

    It’s the Israeli lobby that always bribes our officials to do their bidding, especially as it wants to maintain a Jewish control over the Federal Reserve.

    I remember escaping the matrix… I was the typical WASP living and prospering in the US for a long, long time and I believed all the rah-rah-rah BS we were fed via the media, much like most Americans… It was not until I began to travel the world and was forced to view the US through the lens of the people where I was assigned at the time… Sometimes weeks, months and years… It was then that I realized that I had been lied to my entire life about every major historical event that shaped the rhetoric of militarism that was being shoved down the rest of the world’s throat… I knew if I were to maintain my sanity, I had to escape the matrix and I did… Now I see the US being more polarized than every, ready to tear itself apart and the people fail to realize they are being led down this path on purpose… The hubris of the US deep state which for decades has been used to overthrow governments around the world in the name of the greater good has now turned on it’s own… Not happy to be the voice of “democracy”. the deep state has now removed the facade and shown it’s bloody, tyrannical psychosis of wanting to dominate the world by any means… This will not end well as the Generals believe that limited, tactical nuclear war is not only possible, but ethical… Worship whatever god you call dear and find a safe space, because it’s going to get a lot worse before it ever gets better…

    US citizens are ‘brainwashed’ into believing the US is a ‘light unto nations’ and a ‘force for good’. North Korean citizens are ‘brainwashed’ into believing the US is ‘Great Satan’ out to kill them. Two totally different forms of ‘brainwashing’.

    I still consider Glen Greenwald an excellent reporter. He has done many good things over the years. I respect him for the good he has done. He has done a lot of work debunking the anti-Russian hysteria that has swept the US over the past year.

    However, it has been clear for many years that he has some serious weak points when it comes to foreign policies. He has completely missed the main issues concerning Ukraine but for the most part he has avoided saying too much about it. He also fell for the phony Syrian spring story from the very beginning but after the first year or so that is an issue that he has mostly avoided. I doubt he has any understanding of what happened in Libya. That is disappointing. The fact that his outlet, the Intercept, published this current bullshit on Syria is also disappointing but he is the editor not the writer of that piece.

    We should also remember that many good Western people on the left who support justice for the Palestinians turned against the Syrian government in 2011 because the Hamas wing of Palestinian refugees located in Syria joined the jihadis in the rebellion against the Assad government. At the time I thought they were fools but have been somewhat pleased that by 2013 most of these leftists became silent on the issue. Many remain confused but at least they have dropped their earlier support. I remain hopeful that Glen will realize his errors.

    “It is not the aim of “white nationalists aim to create a healthy and homogeneous society through racial purity”. Those people want “their kind” to rule absolutely while all “other” people are to be their slaves.”

    Written by someone who has no inkling of what white nationalists want apart from the lies spoon-fed to her from the msm. No one wants the return of slavery. Not even David Duke or Richard Spencer. What they want is “safe spaces” for white people.

    With the bizarre situation of those buses stranded in the middle of the desert and the utter futility of the ISIS strategic position, it’s getting very obvious that the only remaining objective of the forces fighting the SAA is to destroy as much infrastructure as possible and kill as many people as possible. Perhaps it always was the only objective but I’m actually not looking forward to the victory with Syrians regaining control of a country consisting of a smoking pile of rubble. They never deserved this and it really makes you the humanity/sanity of the people who organized it.

    “… pile of rubble” is just bricks and mortar, just bricks and mortar, Sad canuck. Syrians will now get much needed new housing so what’s so sad about that?! I for one will be utterly satisfied with the predicted and imminent Syrian victory. Especially that now the battle-hardened Syrian army has re-connected with the battle-hardened Iraqi army as well as the mighty Lebanese resistance.

    The diabolical foreign plan was to divide Iraq, Syria and Lebanon but as the Arabs say “the magic has turned on the magician” and now we have an essential and fundamental military union between the three aforementioned countries, backed by the power-trio of Russia, China and Iran.

    Bob #62 In that twitter thread Glen also denies being the editor for the offending article. The criticism he has received on this Mariam Elba article has definitely put him on the defensive.

    I think I spoke too soon (#57) in defense of G Greenwald. On his twitter feed he recommended this article in CNN praising some Russian political operative who is part of the anti-Putin movement in Moscow.

    Sex abuse probe WILL investigate Ted Heath over paedophile claims: Public inquiry set to look at explosive report by Chief Constable who says allegations against the ex-PM are ‘120 per cent’ genuine

    Several Conservative politicians have called Operation Conifer, which has cost £1.5 million, a waste of time and public money. They say it is pointless because Sir Edward died 12 years ago and could never be prosecuted.

    But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said Mr Veale had been wrongly vilified and there were ‘powerful voices who would like to silence Operation Conifer’.

    Mr Veale was a ‘courageous and honest’ policeman and ‘must be allowed to complete his investigation, free of abuse, intimidation or pressure,’ Mr Bridgen writes in today’s Mail on Sunday. There should be no cover-up, regardless of any embarrassment to the Conservatives – or anyone else.

    In February, this newspaper reported that more than 30 people had come forward to Wiltshire Police with allegations of sexual abuse by Sir Edward. The alleged victims were said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts of incidents, even though the individuals were not known to each other.

    According to some sources, the findings of Operation Conifer support claims that Sir Edward’s alleged crimes were reported to police years ago but buried by the Establishment.

    That is why Chief Constable Veale must be allowed to complete his investigation, free of intimidation of any sort.

    Referring to the inquiry, set up when she was Home Secretary, Theresa May said last week: ‘If we turn a blind eye to this abuse, as has happened too much in the past, more crimes will be committed and more children will be suffering in silence.’

    The Prime Minister is right.

    The Will of Canaan instructs these criminals, “Never tell the truth,” and they are faithful to Canaan’s admonition. This is justice as it is handed out in a legal system which is dominated by Masons, and Virginia is one of the prime offenders.

    “You should hire a private attorney.” In other words, find yourself a Masonic lawyer and take it from there. The Masonic Handbook says, “If you cheat, wrong, or defraud any other society or individual, it is entirely your business. If you cheat government even, Masonry cannot and will not touch you; but be very careful not to cheat, wrong, or defraud a brother Mason or lodge. Who ever else you may defraud, live up to your Masonic obligations.”

    This again is merely a restatement of the Will of Canaan.

    The Will of Canaan, is to be found in only one place in all the world’s theological literature, the Babylonian Talmud, where it is presented thusly, “Five things did Canaan charge his sons: love one another, love robbery, love lewdness, hate your masters, and do not speak the truth.” Pes. 113b

    Now it has emerged that the police are probing allegations that the school – which has enjoyed visits from Prince Harry and the British Army’s Chief of the General Staff – even bribed a teacher’s daughter to provide information that led to the arrest of whistleblowers who sought to expose the alleged goings-on at the school.

    A letter from Kent Professional Standards Department, seen by The Telegraph, details how the force is reviewing a complaint that officers “failed to investigate the report of bribery by the school in paying Ceri Austin to provide a statement”.

    Ceri Austin’s mother Tracy had resigned from her positions as the school’s deputy child protection officer in protest at the way the school dealt with concerns about sexual abuse of a teenage girl.

    They wanted to turn a blind eye to it. At the time there was a spate of sleeper holds – where boys strangle each other until they faint Former teacher
    After allegedly being offered a sum of money, Ceri Austin gave a witness statement which led to the arrest of her mother and Georgina Halford-Hall, a concerned parent who had also tried to complain about alleged bullying and abuse at the school. Both were cleared a year later when crown prosecutors offered no evidence, causing the cases to collapse.

    Kent Police are probing why the allegation of bribery was not properly investigated when it was first reported. They are reviewing a complaint about why it was downgraded to a “suspicious incident” when it was in fact a “matter of extreme importance and one which raised serious questions about the credibility of the evidence provided by school’s management and others in the investigation”.

    Former teachers, parents and students at the school, which is seen as a breeding ground for future army leaders, have told The Telegraph that when they tried to raise the alarm about the alleged abuse, the school moved to silence them.
