  1. BBC licence fee to be scrapped - Who was paying for it anyway?

    Posted on

    The BBC is set to scrap its £159 a year licence fee for watching live TV. Ministers have said they will set up a timetable to find a viable alternative in time for when the BBC’s current royal charter expires in 2027. (See article).

    But the question that should be asked is who is paying this anyway and why?

    I have not paid TV licence for well over a decade, and I have no issue declaring that I watch live TV. 

    I simply wrote to them, explained we have no legally binding contract and I have no obligation to pay them and that on that basis they can go whistle for their licence fee. I also served them a notice which removed their implied right of access to come onto my property, so if they so much as ring my door bell they will be tresspassing and breaking the law, then I can call the police and have them removed.

    It really is that easy.

    After sending my letter they replied accepting that I didn't require a licence. 

    Stop funding the BBC NOW!

  2. The Murder of David Dees

    Posted on

    Excerpt from Article by Greg Caton June 14 2020

    Born July 9, 1957, David was for years a freelance illustrator before creating the artwork that would make him famous -- (or infamous, if you're one of his detractors). His brilliance was evident quite early. The son of an advanced mathematics teacher, Dees won numerous math awards and was given a free scholarship to Emory University. However, David's initial awakening came from a place completely divorced from the world of mathematics or illustration. In 1992 David was put in contact with a gifted spiritual healer in the Philippines, named Rev. Alex L. Orbito. Wrestling with a growth for which conventional doctors were not able to offer any meaningful cure, David flew to the Philippines to seek out Orbito. He was 35 years old.

    Orbito was one of a rarified breed of practitioners that are variously referred to as "psychic surgeons." While performing this art, Orbito was able to remove the growth without use of a knife or other surgical instrument -- and it is a growth that never returned. David did, however. He came back to the Philippines just to visit in 1994, ever grateful for Orbito's miraculous assistance -- using an art that the censors at Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will insist does not exist and never has.


    Later, Dees worked for Sesame Street Magazine in the early 2000s, and then started researching the events surrounding "911." Aghast at how completely absurd the official narrative was -- and even more that the majority of people were gullible enough to believe it -- he felt inspired to turn his considerable talent as an illustrator into posting "political art." At the time, David was living in Sweden, having moved to Europe in 2003. As his political hobby progressed and his artwork became popular, David was eventually targeted. In 2010 he began to experience unusual events that are common to "truthers" who become popular and attract too much attention.




    In 2012 political pressure was applied to kick David out of Sweden entirely, and in fact, he was. But just prior to that, in 2011, I was introduced to David through a mutual friend, Jeff Rense. Fast forward nine years later, Jeff faithfully attended to David at a hospice facility until the very end -- and, in fact -- Jeff visited David the night before he passed. Rense has set up a David Dees tribute page, with 97 high quality, expandable illustrations -- a small selection of David's vast creations.




    In late 2018, a mutual friend in New Orleans called me to ask if I was concerned about unusual comments David was making about his diet. Despite the fact that David and I chatted all the time on Skype, he had not made these particular statements to me. As one example, he noted that whenever he ate fruit, he'd have a horrific candida outbreak -- which, of course, is not normal. I had been aware for some time that David was being "targeted," and I stated above, this is something that began in 2010. One of the telltale signs that someone is being "targeted" is that you see pathogenic anomalies that are rare -- if not non-existent -- in naturally occurring diseases.

    At about the same time, David began reporting that he felt he was being targeted, perhaps via direct energy weaponry, with which I am very familiar. At the end of 2018, David made plans to visit us in Ecuador. He said he felt "they" were going to soon kill him. He sent letters out to all his fans talking about moving to Ecuador. Now you know the real reason. He was already experiencing "voices inside my head," which you can't discuss with too many people, or they'll think you're crazy, but I'm quite familiar with that technology, as well. In fact, I have encountered several people who were either whistleblowers or had held very sensitive information, who were so victimized by this technology.


    When I asked what these programmed "voices" were telling him, he indicated that the "voices" were telling him that if he didn't stop producing political artwork, he would be eliminated. (Earlier, David had taken a "hiatus" from producing political art, claiming that he was tired of the harassment. Once he stopped producing art of a politically sensitive nature, the harassment stopped. Nonetheless, the siren call to create more "enlightening artwork" never left him. Next, he used my Cansema Black Salve to get rid of a skin cancer that had been bothering him, which provided part of the inspiration for my next project -- speaking of which:
    About the same time that he began working on the artwork for my book, Black Salve, he began producing more political artwork for other clients. And so the harassment resumed. David wasn't willing to "listen" to the voices anymore. Now you know the end result. My good friend and NASA astronaut, Dr. Brian O'Leary, died in the same manner -- namely, electromagneticallly induced cancer. There are a variety of electromagnetic agents -- a form of DEW (direct energy weaponry -- the same technology used to create these horrific fires we've been seeing on the West Coast over the past few years -- which they employ to take out selected individuals, families and even entire communities). For these types of cancers, there is no cure. Nor will there ever be a cure. No more than there would ever be a cure to getting shot in the heart with a 45 calibre bullet. These are not naturally occurring diseases.
    David then said he wanted to get out of the U.S. and didn't feel safe there anymore. So he took a flight down to visit me in January (2019), at which point he stayed for a week. I went with him personally to visit my Ecuadorian immigration lawyer to get the paperwork started. The trip seemed strained, and my wife and I got the distinct sense that he felt out of place. He found the prospect of having to learn a new lanugage (obviously, Spanish), at the age of 61 to be an unexpected challenge. (He had already become functional in Swedish while living in Sweden -- a skill not terribly useful anywhere else.) In David's defense, he had placed so much focus on trying to find a place on earth where he'd just be left alone, that details that would have occurred to most other people hadn't occurred yet to David. Knowing the burden that David was living with, I completely understood. Additionally, David was informed by my immigration lawyer that new rules were in place that would require him to go back and forth between the U.S. and Ecuador on repeated trips. This was because there were responsibilities that David had back in Oregon that would not allow him to stay in Ecuador until he got his permanent visa.
    When David got back to the States, he underwent an internal dialogue where -- as he put it -- he knew "I'm just going to stay here and go down with the ship." We worked intermittently throughout the rest of 2019, staying in regular touch, while I put the finishing touches on Black Salve.
    In early 2020, David began complaining about back pain. It wasn't until March -- just three months ago -- that he went in for extensive testing. It was then that he discovered that he had extensive melanoma which had already metastasized throughout the back. Because I already knew the signs of cancers that are not naturally-occurring, I had serious concerns about David's prognosis. Nonetheless, I had an assortment of naturopathic products shipped to David on the hope that the cancer could be arrested. In late March, David began calling one of our M.D. associates, indicating that an oncologist was highly recommending radiation therapy. Despite the reservations expressed by our associate, David relented anyway and went ahead with radiation therapy. His attitude was, "I'm in horrible pain now, even with pain medication. Radiation therapy has a horrible track record, but how much worse could the pain get?" He wasn't thinking about getting cured of cancer. He knew that wasn't going to happen. He was hoping that the pain might be alleviated.
    David's decline was quite predictably rapid thereafter. After March, it became too difficult for me to discuss what was happening. I got sucked up into the vortex of trying to preserve what was left of our business, and David was consumed with wrapping up his affairs -- knowing that he had accomplished the mission he came into this life to fulfill -- knowing that his life had been filled with meaning and purpose, and that others, like Jeff, would continue spreading the messages contained in his art. Our final Skype conversations are a testament to David's knowingness. That he knowingly gave his life so that others, through true knowledge of how the world works as revealed in his art, would be able to renew theirs. That there is nothing more essential to our humanity than seeing through the fake narratives that surround us -- and standing by our truths. That all the censorship in the world will not change reality. And most importantly -- as Socrates taught us more than 2,400 years ago -- "the unexamined life is not worth living."
    Below I have chosen three relatively recent excerpts taken from the many hundreds of written conversations I had with David over the years (to say nothing of our many phone converations). These excerpts support the more vital claims I have made in this essay:

    Above -- November 23: This is an excerpt of a conversation we had last November. On multiple levels, David felt that he would be "leaving" soon, although he didn't know how and it would, in fact, be three and a half months before he was diagnosed with cancer. [Like all the images in this essay, click to enlarge.]

    Above -- March 8, 2020 This is the message I received from David right after he got diagnosed. By now, David demonstrates a keen awareness that he's dying, that it is artificially induced -- ("I failed to consider how the parasite controllers cancer out people all the time."). Spirits on the other side are aware as well, as David is being visited by deceased friends from the other side -- something that occurred to numerous, now-deceased members of my own family prior to passing.

    Above -- March 9, 2020: Around the same time that David was diagnosed, I became deathly ill with a flu with a completely uncommon symptomology. It wouldn't be until a little later that I realized that I had managed to get fully-blown CoVid. The worst of it lasted only two days in the beginning (March 5 and 6), and I never lost a day of work. The reason for this is because I already knew how to cure CoVid and had the good sense to know that the public was being scammed into "vaccine mania." This is our second to final communication. On March 13, David wrote to thank me for sending the products. I asked him to get back to me if he had any questions. A return reply was never received.


    Strangely, reports of David's death appeared almost immediately in varous mainstream outlets upon his passing, as if they were monitoring his situation. For example, it appeared right away in David's RationalWiki bio, which attempts to portray David as a complete nutjob with its usual cringe-worthy, sophomoric style. It's even worse than the politically-motivated, hatchet job they did on me in my Wikipedia biography.
    A couple points are worth noting in this regard. "Antisemitism" - First of all, David Dees was NOT anti-Jewish. (I won't use the term, anti-semitic, because it's just another bullshit intel agency word. Antisemitism actually means hostility towards Semites -- that is, those who speak a Semitic language. Since there are only about 9 million speakers of Hebrew in the world, compared to over 300 million speakers of Arabic -- both being Semitic languages -- you are actually indicating greater hatred towards Arabs when you call somebody an antisemite. Israel is the only country where Hebrew is the official language. By contrast, Arabic is the official language of the Arab League, which consists of 22 nation states, to say nothing of all the Arabic speakers in other countries. The very use of the term is an imbecilic negation of its etymology. If somebody has an irrational hatred of Jews, they should just be called anti-Jewish.Though David could at times be fast and loose with his use of language, what his artwork targeted specifically was the Luciferian manifestations of Zionism. As Joe Biden so famously declared, "You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist. I AM a Zionist," which is another way of saying, "You don't have to be a Jew to worship Satan." (Go to 0.56 to hear Joe Biden make this declaration -- note that this is before he began suffering from severe dementia and could barely remember his own name.)
    Conversely, just because you're a Jew doesn't mean you're a worshipper of Lucifer. I discuss this in my book, The Joys of Psychopathocracy, Chapter 5. The first woman I was ever engaged to, my first wife (a different woman), my business partner in Guayaquil from 2007 to 2011, my current business associate in Poland, and NUMEROUS personal friends are all Jewish. Jews are woven into the fabric of my entire life and have had a huge impact on my career. None of them were Zionists, none of them were Satan worshippers, and all of them were good people. If anything, my critics are more likely to label me an incorrigible Jew-lover. My personal opinion is that Jews have gotten a bad rap -- with Satanists using the Jewish race to shield themselves from criticism. If pressed on this point, I do not believe that David would have disagreed, and I knew him well.
    "Dees believes in all conspiracies." If the shoe fits, wear it. So called "conspiracy theorists" are not wacky. Throughout my career, I have seen that the "conspiracy theory" of one generation is the "indisputable historical fact" of the next. Moreover, to say that David embraced all conspiracy theories is patently untrue. There are plenty of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories that David would not have supported. However -- yes -- the more widely circulated conspiracy theories, the ones that Big Tech is working so assiduously to suppress and censor, are on the money. Are most of them confirmably true? Absolutely. The fake conspiracy theories are the ones that Big Tech does NOT suppress and which Dees left alone.

  3. The Rise of Global Fascism and the End of the World as We Know It

    Posted on


    “This is the way the world ends

    Not with a bang but a whimper.”

    — “The Hollow Men,” T.S. Eliot

    Barely three years into the 2020s, and we seem to be living out the prophesies of the Book of Revelation with its dire warnings about plague, poverty, hatred and war.

    Just as the government hysteria over the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be dying down, new threats have arisen to occupy our attention and fuel our fears: food shortages, spiking inflation, rocketing gas prices, and a Ukraine-Russia conflict that threatens to bring about a world war.

    Is this the end of the world as we know it? Or is this the beginning of the end of the world?

    Will the world end with a bang or will it end, as T.S. Eliot concludes, with a whimper?

    Robert Frost, torn between a vision of the world ending in fire (the hot flame of violence, anger and greed) or ice (the cold burn of hatred), suggests that either would suffice to do the job.

    And then there’s the Polish-American poet Czeslaw Milosz, who envisioned the day the world ends as a day like any other: “Those who expected lightning and thunder are disappointed. And those who expected signs and archangels’ trumps do not believe it is happening now. As long as the sun and the moon are above, as long as the bumblebee visits a rose, as long as rosy infants are born, no one believes it is happening now… There will be no other end of the world.”

    In Milosz’ words can be found a distant echo of a warning issued by Bertram Gross in his book Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America:

    “Anyone looking for black shirts, mass parties, or men on horseback will miss the telltale clues of creeping fascism. In any First World country of advanced capitalism, the new fascism will be colored by national and cultural heritage, ethnic and religious composition, formal political structure, and geopolitical environment… In America, it would be supermodern and multi-ethnic-as American as Madison Avenue, executive luncheons, credit cards, and apple pie. It would be fascism with a smile. As a warning against its cosmetic facade, subtle manipulation, and velvet gloves, I call it friendly fascism. What scares me most is its subtle appeal. I am worried by those who fail to remember-or have never learned -that Big Business-Big Government partnerships, backed up by other elements, were the central facts behind the power structures of old fascism in the days of Mussolini, Hitler, and the Japanese empire builders.”

    Look beyond the drum-pounding distractions of war and the fear-inducing tactics of the Deep State, and consider the long-term ramifications of the so-called sanctions being levied against Russia right now: not just the governmental sanctions, but the corporate lockdowns.

    As CBS News reports, “Car shipments were paused. Beer stopped flowing. McDonald’s shut down sales of Big Macs. Cargo ships dropped port calls and oil companies cut their pipelines. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is leading some of the world’s best known brands—from Apple to Disney and Ikea—to abruptly exit a country that’s become a global outcast.”

    This is shunning on a global scale.

    Some companies, as Fortune reports, have gone above and beyond what was required by government sanctions. For instance, “major oil companies, including Exxon, BP, and Shell, ended joint investment projects with Russian oil companies. Major retailers, including H&M, Nike, Ikea, and TJX, have shut down Russian sales and closed stores. Visa, Mastercard, and American Express shut down global services in Russia… Boeing cut off support for Russian airlines and closed its offices in Moscow, while Delta ended its Russian code-sharing arrangement… FedEx and UPS shut services to Russia. Apple, Alphabet, Meta, and Microsoft all have taken significant action to combat Russian aggression and disinformation.”

    You basically have Russia becoming a commercial pariah,” confirmed economist Mary Lovely. “Pretty much no company, no multinational, wants to be caught on the wrong side of U.S. and Western sanctions.”

    Russia’s military aggression has paved the way for a show of force by a punitive Big Business-Big Government power alliance that, until recently, had been exerting itself on a smaller scale to sanction individuals whose behavior was deemed to be hateful, discriminatory, conspiratorial or anti-government.

    There’s no going back from here.

    This may well be the end of the world as we know it.

    This particular apocalypse is the fallout from a silent coup that has given the Corporate State a taste for punitive power and an understanding of the ease with which it can use that power to manipulate, control and direct the world governments.

    For good or bad, it will change the way we navigate the world, redrawing the boundaries of our world (and our freedoms) and altering the playing field faster than we can keep up.

    This new world order—a global world order—made up of international government agencies and corporations owes its existence in large part to the U.S. government’s deep-seated and, in many cases, top-secret alliances with foreign nations and global corporations.

    This powerful international cabal, let’s call it the Global Deep State, is just as real as the corporatized, militarized, industrialized American Deep State, and it poses just as great a threat to our rights as individuals under the U.S. Constitution, if not greater.

    We’ve been inching closer to this global world order for the past several decades, but COVID-19, which saw governmental and corporate interests become even more closely intertwined, shifted this transformation into high gear.

    Now, in the face of Russia’s aggression, fascism is about to become a global menace.

    Given all that we know about the U.S. government—that it treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, and tracked; that it repeatedly lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn; and that it wages wars for profit, jails its own people for profit, and has no qualms about spreading its reign of terror abroad—it is not a stretch to suggest that the government has been overtaken by a power elite that do not have our best interests at heart.

    Indeed, to anyone who’s been paying attention to the goings-on in the world, it is increasingly obvious that we’re already under a new world order, and it is being brought to you by the Global-Industrial Deep State.

    It remains unclear whether the American Deep State (“a national-security apparatus that holds sway even over the elected leaders notionally in charge of it”) answers to the Global Deep State, or whether the Global Deep State merely empowers the American Deep State. However, there is no denying the extent to which they are intricately and symbiotically enmeshed and interlocked.

    Consider the extent to which our lives and liberties are impacted by this international convergence of governmental and profit-driven corporate interests in the surveillance state, the military industrial complex, the private prison industry, the intelligence sector, the security sector, the technology sector, the telecommunications sector, the transportation sector, the pharmaceutical industry and, most recently, by the pharmaceutical-health sector.

    All of these sectors are dominated by mega-corporations operating on a global scale and working through government channels to increase their profit margins. The profit-driven policies of these global corporate giants influence everything from legislative policies to economics to environmental issues to medical care.

    On almost every front, whether it’s the war on drugs, or the sale of weapons, or regulating immigration, or establishing prisons, or advancing technology, or fighting a pandemic, if there is a profit to be made and power to be amassed, you can bet that the government and its global partners have already struck a deal that puts the American people on the losing end of the bargain.

    We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’re certainly on that downward trajectory now, and things are moving fast.

    The “government of the people, by the people, for the people” has perished.

    In its place is a shadow government—a corporatized, militarized, entrenched global bureaucracy—that is fully operational and is not only running the country but is about to take over the world.

    Given the trajectory and dramatic expansion, globalization and merger of governmental and corporate powers, we’re not going to recognize this country (or the rest of the world) 20 years from now.

    It’s taken less than a generation for our freedoms to be eroded and the Global Deep State’s structure to be erected, expanded and entrenched.

    Yet mark my words: the U.S. government will not save us from the chains of the Global Deep State.

    The current or future occupant of the White House will not save us.

    For that matter, anarchy, violence and incivility will not save us.

    Unfortunately, the government’s divide and conquer tactics are working like a charm.

    Despite the laundry list of grievances that should unite “we the people” in common cause against the government, the nation is more divided than ever by politics, by socio-economics, by race, by religion, and by every other distinction that serves to highlight our differences.

    The real and manufactured events of recent years—the pandemic, invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers—have all conjoined to create an environment in which “we the people” are more divided, more distrustful, and fearful of each other.

    What we have failed to realize is that in the eyes of the government, we’re all the same.

    When the government and its Global-Industrial Deep State partners in the New World Order crack down, we’ll all suffer.

    If there is to be any hope of freeing ourselves, it rests—as it always has—at the local level, with you and your fellow citizens taking part in grassroots activism, which takes a trickle-up approach to governmental reform by implementing change at the local level.

    One of the most important contributions an individual citizen can make is to become actively involved in local community affairs, politics and legal battles. As the adage goes, “Think globally, act locally.”

    America was meant to be primarily a system of local governments, which is a far cry from the colossal federal bureaucracy we have today. Yet if our freedoms are to be restored, understanding what is transpiring practically in your own backyard—in one’s home, neighborhood, school district, town council—and taking action at that local level must be the starting point.

    Responding to unmet local needs and reacting to injustices is what grassroots activism is all about. Attend local city council meetings, speak up at town hall meetings, organize protests and letter-writing campaigns, employ “militant nonviolent resistance” and civil disobedience, which Martin Luther King Jr. used to great effect through the use of sit-ins, boycotts and marches.

    And then, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, if there is any means left to us for thwarting the government in its relentless march towards outright dictatorship, it may rest with the power of communities and local governments to invalidate governmental and corporate laws, tactics and policies that are illegitimate, egregious or blatantly unconstitutional
