Taxpayers are Lambs for Scams:
"Not a Day Passes Where Thinkers do Marvel
As Fraud of Democracy Continues to Unravel,

Hi folks. I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on May the 9th 2013. For newcomers, as always I suggest you make good use of cuttingthroughthematrix.com. On the website there you’ll see other sites listed that I have. They all carry audios for download. If you find sticking on the .com site because so many folk go into it at the same time, try another site listed there. They all carry transcripts as well for print up of lots of talks I’ve given over the years. So help yourself to them too. Remember too, you are the audience that bring me to you. If you want to keep me going you can help me tick along by getting the books and disks at cuttingthroughthematrix.com.
Through the books I go through the art of conology. Conology is always with us; it’s a very old art, in fact. It’s how the first elite ever started off on the planet, how to con other people into being worshiped, really, and then how to extract various kinds of gifts and tolls and so on from them basically, like levies and taxes. And how they were elevated, and then how their children take over in the same positions, and then you have this ultra-royal deity basically. Ancient techniques, all countries used them, especially in the Middle Eastern areas, where there were different peoples. They all use the same techniques. As I say, I go through the history of it and how knowledge is never lost, especially the kind of knowledge to do with manipulation of peoples’ minds on vast scales. It’s never, ever lost. It’s always kept by empires. And as an empire falls, the next empire takes over, they carry that knowledge with them, and all the advisories to kings and queens simply move into the new empire and sell their talents to the new kings and queens, right down to today. Of course, presidents and prime ministers today are all surrounded by advisors, and scriptwriters, that do it all for them. So we get fictions for whoever is running our country, or who you think is running your countries, all made up by people behind the scenes. It’s all publicity and PR management. So anyway, in the books I go through the history of this from ancient times to the present. And the different codes they’ve used through time too; easy to do with an illiterate population, which was very, very common up until, really, fairly recently, and how it’s going into higher types of coding today through computers and all the rest of it.
Remember too, to buy the books and disks you can [Order and donation options listed above.]. And straight donations are seriously well come as we go through inflation, the planned inflation to bring us into austerity. Austerity really means that all the extra money you had at one time will simply go to the bare essentials, in the future. That’s the world they want to bring in, under the Millennium Project, sustainable development, Agenda 21 – it’s all the same thing – and they really mean it. The big boys, the elite who run the world really do mean this and they’re going to make it happen by one crisis after another. That’s why they create the crisis and come forward with the pre-drawn up plans to get over the crisis. So crisis are awfully good, you need them to keep the world changing along the agenda, you see.
Most folk think we’re going through this sort of accidental view of history – that’s what they think it is – not the planned view of history. Accidental means you just stumble down through time, falling over things, and politicians just find ways around them or how to get over things. And that’s nonsense. Those in power, all down through the ages, always plan the future, to ensure that their own offspring take over in the same positions with even more wealth and power than before. Standard stuff. They live through their children. The music is coming in so I’ll be back with more after this break.
Hi folks, we’re back Cutting Through The Matrix. We live by deception, really. Deception is really what news is all about. News is there to keep you kind of swinging in a swing, just like a swing with your feet trailing along the ground and humming to yourself. It teaches you too that something, everything, really, on a major scale is outside of your own control. Leave it to your betters, your better people, the special folk up there who come out of special wombs and just know how to take care of things, just leave it to them. Of course, that was the initial way of bypassing democracy and involvement. Because democracy, which in democracy everyone would be involved, you see; in fact, you would be asked, everyone would get a vote on major thing that affected your lives. And that’s never happened, you see. The plebian vote, they called it in ancient Greece. And it never will happen either. Because as I say, power never gives itself up, voluntarily.
You find in the big, big institutions, like I’ve mentioned the Royal Institute of International Affairs, awfully, awfully important to understand. They were the boys formed by Lord Rothschild, Cecil Rhodes, Lord Milner, that became the Royal Institute of International Affairs eventually, the guys who drew up this world map of unification of countries into whole blocs, trading blocs with free trade. They’d also bypass any country with trade; they wouldn’t trade with any countries that wouldn’t join. So it’s a form of blackmail as well, you see. Of course this organization too, if you read the Milner books for instance, they talked about getting world wars going in order to get countries to give up their sovereignty; get them to their knees, get them bankrupt and they’d be begging for amalgamation. And they had World War I and World War II.
Now, their own historian wrote about it, because they have their own version of history. Professor Carroll Quigley said it was so important, that they’d altered so much history; they’d been behind all the wars for the past 100 years, he said. He says, it was important that the public should know about this now; he thought it was a great idea, taking over the world this way. But what is coincidental too, is that Karl Marx before that had come out with the same agenda: first amalgamate Europe, then the Americas and then a Pacific Rim region as well. And they’d all have a form of government, a sort of inferior government for each region and these governments would be under the supervision of a world government. So again, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, also called the Council on Foreign Relations, worked hard to make all of this come to pass.
They drafted up the whole idea for the NAFTA treaties; they actually drafted it up, this private club drafted it up and got the politicians to sign it into law. And we’re still going through it in the Americas. And they were the ones who drafted it up too, for the EU amalgamation. These guys too, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, they sent their emissaries out across the planet, to also take over all the big mineral rights, and eventually water rights, and right down to the food rights today, of the world. Because you see, only the superior intellects, which of course is themselves, the ones who pretty well owned most of the world’s wealth by this time, who formed the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had the right to decide what happens and what direction the world goes into. Ordinary folk were just too dumb and stupid, you see, to make their own decisions. Therefore, the big boys would use scientific techniques to train us all to do things properly. And I’m telling you one thing too, the computer has a big part to do with this, training you, nudging you, giving you standardized opinions, as TV did before, and still does actually. So it all works together.
You find, for instance, the Queen of England. You would think she might be neutral in the stance to do with total amalgamation, or subjugation of Britain under Europe. This foreign, across-the-sea entity that they call Brussels where their Parliament is, that’s running the whole of Europe, of unelected bureaucrats. But no, she’s all for this, you see. Now remember, I’ve said so many times before, Kings and Queens were often foreign people, even from different races, that ruled over people of another race that they had conquered. You see. They even hired other people to come in and do tax farming, that also were from a different race. This went on for centuries and centuries up to not too long ago actually. So they had contempt for the ordinary people, still do. Anyway this article here sums it up. It says…
No referendum pledge but Queen's Speech does contain backing
for EU 'propaganda' promoting the virtues of Brussels
(Alan: So she’s all for it, you see.)
dailymail.co.uk / Matt Chorley / 8 May 2013
Britain is to sign off taxpayer-funded ‘propaganda’ to promote the virtues European Union despite growing calls to quit Brussels altogether.
Tory (A: Conservative.) MPs had called on David Cameron to bring forward legislation in today’s Queen’s Speech for his promised in-out referendum.
But instead, buried in the small print, was a plan for the UK to authorize the Europe for Citizens scheme which aims to ‘develop understanding of the EU’. (A: They want a ‘European’ citizen.)
There was no mention of Europe in the speech delivered by the Queen to MPs and peers.
The Tories are under pressure after the recent rise of the UK Independence Party culminating in them taking almost one in four votes in last week’s local elections.
Mr Cameron has promised to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU before staging an in-out referendum by 2017, if he is Prime Minister after the next election.
But his strategy was blown apart yesterday when former Chancellor Lord Lawson said he would vote to leave the EU.
Slipped into the detail of the government’s legislation plans for the next year was the European Union Approvals Bill.
Among three programmes listed, it includes Europe for Citizens which according to government briefing notes ‘aims to develop understanding of the EU, its history and policy-making processes and encourage civic participation in the EU’.
(A: Now, the EU was to be set up in secret. Part of the lend-lease program at the end of World War II, where the US banks would finance the devastated countries like Britain, part of the deal was that they would form and push for a United Europe. Eisenhower was all for it too. They didn’t tell the British public this at the time, or any of the countries in Europe for that matter. So they set up their branches in secrecy. In about 1948 they set up the first branches, parts of government, in Britain and other countries, that worked all way up until the late 90s before they admitted, it had all been done by stealth and secrecy and lies. They lie to the public over and over again. When they were reading about prime ministers signing accords and ‘deeper ties’ and ‘closer ties’ with their partners, so they kept lying and saying it was just to do with the economy, economic partnership. It was for total integration. All deception. So they want to teach this history to the public? I don’t think so.)
It also aims to ‘promote remembrance of Europe’s history, particularly the wars and totalitarian regimes of the 20th century’. (A: What are the totalitarian regimes of this century?)
The scheme, which has a 229 million euro budget for 2014-20, claims that most Europeans 'generally recognize the benefits of the EU' and 'want to see the Union becoming a more integral part of their national political landscapes'. (A: Well of course; they’ve never done any surveys to find out what the folk actually think.)
The revelation is likely to infuriate Tory MPs demanding Mr Cameron take a tougher line with Brussels instead of backing a scheme which promotes it.
Now, let’s be honest too. This whole idea of unification has bankrupted every country in it. The bankers are just laughing up their sleeves, the international bankers. The Bank for International Settlements, also set up by the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and all the private central banks, as they keep borrowing money from each other now to plug holes in each country that fails. It’s a complete racket, folks, to bring in austerity. Anyway, I’ll put this link up tonight for those who want to read the rest of it. And good luck to you because everything is conology, as I say, and you never get told the truth. You never, ever get told the truth from the main stream news, that are so happy to work with government. Understand that all these particular journalists, they get into the Members, Houses of Parliament stuff like that, and they don’t get invites, they are left out in the cold if they are critical of them. It was the same thing with embedded journalists in America that went off to the Gulf Wars and so on, and the Iraq war. They went along with it, and they couldn’t say anything at all – that was part of the condition –anything negative about what the US military was doing. It’s the same thing, as I say, with this other thing, the exact same thing. Journalists depend on having contacts in government, and being kind to government to get any news from them at all. I mean, it’s really that secretive. The real truth is that secretive, so we get spun stories through marketing professionals.
We also live in an age now where, I’ve said this for years, if you want to… At one time you used to go through school and you would say, I want to do this, I want to do that when I leave school. And you either go in as an employee for somewhere or you would start your own business. Today of course big corporations don’t spend money out there to start another big business. What they do is they get grants from governments, gifts, gifts from governments – the true sense, well, it’s even beyond fascism; it’s beyond that. And if they want to build big projects, they don’t have to go to their shareholders and say we need more cash for this project. They go to government. And there’s a lot of corruption involved because there’s a lot of kickbacks. The government gives them a contract for something – guaranteed payment by the way when government gives them contracts, because they’ve got all the taxpayers money to steal from. Then there’s often a kickback given to the top guys that awarded them, from the government, the contracts. That’s standard procedure.
But anyway, the companies now are so greedy and so spoiled with these kinds of deals. Here’s an article here that explains this…
Elon Musk's SolarCity (A: This is a company.)
Sues Government For More Subsidies
zerohedge.com / Tyler Durden / 05/08/2013
When you donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to re-election campaigns and push more hundreds of thousands of dollars through lobbying, you expect a little more back than the measly $95.6 million that SolarCity received in stimulus grants. The company, chaired by none other than Elon Musk, had applied for $325 million in federal aid in the same program that 'helped' Solyndra (and Tesla) and is now, according to the Wall Street Journal, suing the government for underpayment of green-energy subsidies. (A: Talk about spoiled, and hissy fits. Back with more after this break.)
Hi folks, we’re back Cutting Through The Matrix talking about how spoiled the big corporations are now, as they expect bailouts and handouts and startup money even too. They come to expect it. They’re spoiled rotten, you see. That’s all your tax money of course, that they’re given as gifts, and when they don’t get the gifts now they sue government. As this article says here:
Elon Musk, had applied for $325 million in federal aid (A: That’s after giving a few thousand in election campaigns, so they expect $325 million back. That’s not a bad little gift to give to the politicians to get $325 million back, eh? No one gives by the way, there’s no Corporation or single individual in the world that gives that kind of cash, big cash to government without pay back. I mean, they expect it. And the politicians are bought and paid for, obviously.) in the same program that 'helped' Solyndra (and Tesla) (A: The ones that went defunct.) and is now, according to the Wall Street Journal, suing the government for underpayment of green-energy subsidies. (A: Oh, underpayment. Let’s sue them for more tax money.)
It seems SolarCity are using the M.A.D. defense, claiming that "they could lose millions more," if the government fails to provide the subsidies they asked for. (A: The gifts, you know.) As National Review details, SolarCity is one of the solar companies that is being investigated by the IRS after Treasury found that it "repeatedly overstated the value of its investments." (A: So it’s corrupt as well.) So far the Treasury has paid out over $17 billion in green-energy stimulus grants (A: I mean, it attracts all the crooks. Instant cash. You don’t have to actually come up with anything, just go bankrupt, you know. But the money always disappears before you go bankrupt.) And this case is not without precedent as a number of other renewable-energy firms are set to file suit. (A: So if this one gets away with that they’ll all be suing, for more and more dough. And you’re paying for their private businesses. The taxpayer is paying for all their private businesses. Big bucks.)
Via National Review,
A look at the Department of Treasury Section 1603 data shows that SolarCity received 27 awards across 15 states amounting to $95.6 million in cash from a long-standing tax credit for renewable-energy investment turned into a direct grant in the stimulus bill. SolarCity has applied for approximately $325 million in these stimulus grants, according to the SEC filing.
There are a few things to note here.
First, SolarCity is being investigated by the IRS.
Second, the chairman of SolarCity is Elon Musk, who is also a large owner in the company. In addition to being the chairman of SolarCity, he is also CEO of the automobile company Tesla. Tesla received $465 million from the ATVM loan-guarantee program, the DOE program that gave us the Fisker scandal.
Third, it is worth noting that Elon Musk is a generous political donor. Why does this matter? Because it’s one thing for the government to mismanage taxpayers’ money (as it may have with 1603 payments to SolarCity); it’s another when the mismanagement happens to heavily benefit some of the administration’s large donors. (A: Doesn’t it ever, eh.)
Fourth, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, SolarCity spent $535,000 in 2009 and 2010 to lobby Congress and the Department of Energy on climate legislation, the Recovery Act, “green workforce training and development,” and provisions in various legislation “relevant to solar development.” (A: Not bad, eh? Not bad.)
See, when anything is getting handed out by government, the sharks get just, oh, they’re right in there. No problem. No hesitation. That’s why lobbyists, too, get instant access to government. You can’t as a citizen, because they don’t care about you. But the lobbyists get instant access. Oh yeah, they donated so much to our cause. And of course it’s kickback time and reward time, you know.
Now another article too, it says:
Britain 'faces energy crisis unless ministers abandon green policies'
Britain must abandon its bias towards green policies or face an energy crisis,
a key parliamentary adviser has warned.
telegraph.co.uk / Amy Willis / 09 May 2013
Franking of one kind or another has been used in Britain for decades.
The UK is potentially sitting on enough shale gas reserves to heat all homes for at least 100 years. (A: But that’s not going to happen, because you see they sell it. There’s international corporations that own these franking deals and they sell the stuff abroad. They don’t care about what happens to Britain 100 years down the road.)
Peter Lilley, a member of the Prime Minister's Parliamentary Advisory board, has warned that the UK's hesitance to embrace shale gas comes at great expense to the country.
He cites decreasing gas prices in American as an example, where gas is a third of the price of what it is in Europe, and questions why Britain is "dragging its feet".
The UK is potentially sitting on enough shale gas reserves to heat all homes in Britain for at least 100 years, experts at the British Geological Survey claimed in April this year.
However, there has been resistance to excavate the fossil fuel amid concerns about the possibility of earthquakes and water contamination if gases are leaked into the water table while the "fracking" process is carried out.
In an article for The Spectator, the Conservative MP accuses the Department for Energy and Climate Change (A: Can you believe you’ve got a Department of Energy and climate change?) as being "in disarray" over the issue, with some ministers now beginning to question the direction green policies have been heading. (A: They’re a bit slow, eh. They’re a bit slow; they’re beginning to question the direction green policies have been going. [Alan chuckles.] This is the best they can give you, folks, isn’t it.)
And another article that has come out too:
Harrison H. Schmitt and William Happer:
In Defense of Carbon Dioxide
online.wsj.com / May 8, 2013 / HARRISON H. SCHMITT AND WILLIAM HAPPER
The demonized chemical compound is a boon to plant life and has little correlation with global temperature. (A: Well, we all know that. But you see, they’ve made these holy things, holy topics, you see. See, holy topics are the best kind of lies you can get. Back with more after this break.)
Hi folks, we’re back Cutting Through The Matrix talking about the nonsense that the far, far left, that’s all funded by the way, by the richest folk on the planet, who own the foundations; they’ve got a lot to. Remember that this whole agenda of controlling the world, controlling all of us and altering the way we live, is the big boys’ idea, long before they hit upon the idea of using the weather and carbon and so on. But they fund all these far, far left groups, and pay them awfully well by the way. They give them full-time salaries and all the rest of it, these NGOs, these little charitable organizations; great salaries in them. Anyway they go on to say here…
Of all of the world's chemical compounds, none has a worse reputation than carbon dioxide. Thanks to the single-minded demonization of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control of energy production, (A: It’s also control over the way we live, by the way.) the conventional wisdom about carbon dioxide is that it is a dangerous pollutant. That's simply not the case. Contrary to what some would have us believe, increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will benefit the increasing population on the planet by increasing agricultural productivity. (A: And it’s true, the plants take it in and they give out oxygen, eh.)
The cessation of observed global warming for the past decade or so (A: Now they’re actually saying it’s 17 years.) has shown how exaggerated NASA's and most other computer predictions of human-caused warming have been—and how little correlation warming has with concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide. As many scientists have pointed out, variations in global temperature correlate much better with solar activity (A: You know, the sun, that thing that the heat comes from. You know.) and with complicated cycles of the oceans and atmosphere. There isn't the slightest evidence that more carbon dioxide has caused more extreme weather.
The current levels of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere, approaching 400 parts per million, are low by the standards of geological and plant evolutionary history. Levels were 3,000 ppm, or more, until the Paleocene period (beginning about 65 million years ago). For most plants, and for the animals and humans that use them, more carbon dioxide, far from being a "pollutant" in need of reduction, would be a benefit. This is already widely recognized by operators of commercial greenhouses, who artificially increase the carbon dioxide levels to 1,000 ppm or more to improve the growth and quality of their plants.
Using energy from sunlight—together with the catalytic action of an ancient enzyme called rubisco, the most abundant protein on earth—plants convert carbon dioxide from the air into carbohydrates and other useful molecules. Rubisco catalyzes the attachment of a carbon-dioxide molecule to another five-carbon molecule to make two three-carbon molecules, which are subsequently converted into carbohydrates. (Since the useful product from the carbon dioxide capture consists of three-carbon molecules, plants that use this simple process are called C3 plants.) C3 plants, such as wheat, rice, soybeans, cotton and many forage crops, evolved when there was much more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than today. So these agricultural staples are actually undernourished in carbon dioxide relative to their original design. (A: And it goes on and on and on and talks about other things to do with the same topic. It’s quite good actually and it’s well worth reading. I’ll put that up tonight. I’ll put all these links up, by the way, at cuttingthroughthematrix.com.)
You see, facts don’t matter when you have these big agendas from the top. And they do really have these agendas from the top. Controlling the population of the planet is a big part of the far left, who are paid by the far right, and funded by the far right. And also they want to bring us in austerity as I say too. Because they own all the big corporations at the top and they believe that, they want to change the way that you live, a post consumerist society, they say, into a maintenance society. You’ll maintain yourself, just about, if you’re lucky, and no more. They don’t like us very much, you know.
And also this article, it’s very good. It says:
Abolish the BBC
abolishthebbc.co.uk / David Noakes
Friday, 23 November 2012
By Registered Mail
TV License Department
Bristol BS98 1TL
BBC breach of charter invalidates license fee.
Your charter states, inter alia, the BBC is to be independent, fair, impartial and report the news. (A: Well, that will be the day.)
You concealed from the public the most major news event in our 3,500 year history, the illegal abolition of Britain by the Lisbon treaty on 1st January 2009 and its replacement by the EU dictatorship. (A: And that’s true. They kept the public willingly in the dark, knowingly in the dark, that they were going to lose their sovereignty.)
You deliberately failed to broadcast any honest documentaries on the 6 EU treaties that would have warned the public abolition was approaching, your solemn and bounden duty under your charter.
The BBC has a fifth column (A: And it does, believe you me.), 400 Common Purpose (A: The organization called Common Purpose.) people inside, censoring out anti EU (A: European Parliament, integration, you know.) news (A: They censor it out.) (We have their names). (A: I’ll put that up along with this article tonight.)
You have been complicit in the broadcasting of many of the EU's 200 Frankfurt School subversion techniques over the last 40 years (A: That’s a fact, they have been.), one of which is to brainwash with nonsensical irrelevant or rubbish programming instead of accurate news and honest information. You are guilty of deliberately dumbing down the populace. (A: And by the way, the Frankfort School said that, that they would have to radically alter the culture of the west, radically, and destroy it, totally, right down to the destruction of the family unit, all the rest of it. And if you saw the trash that the BBC lead, and is still leading, it’s just astonishing. And yet it’s paid for by taxpayers’ money. It’s a government arm, you see, of propaganda.)
You have also illegally received large sums from the European Union (A: Which is true too, they’ve also taken money from the EU.), bribery by a foreign power, and you illegally act as the EU's agent against the British people who pay your license fee. (A: By the way, they’re also taking money from the CIA – remember, I read that last year – they made a deal with them.)
You also employ a wasteful bureaucracy of 27,000 (A: 27,000 people work there…) when you need 2,000, spend £7 billion of our money when you need £800 million. (A: Rather than $7 billion. They are spoiled rotten, the characters from the BBC, because really, they see themselves as high level government employees more than anything else.)
You extort these disgraceful sums from the public with the grossly unjust licence fee, which forces people to pay for this abysmal service when they may rather watch ITV or one of hundreds of other channels. The whole basis of the licence fee is illegal under common law.
Under British statute and common law any attempt to undermine British sovereignty is considered treason. The BBC has been deeply complicit.
The penalty for quite minor treason is either life imprisonment or to hang by the neck until dead (eg William Joyce in 1946), and this should be the fate of all your board members since 1970.
You've rubbished your charter (A: They’ve destroyed their charter…), and forfeited any rights to extort your criminal license fee.
The concealment of the paedophilia of Jimmy Savile and others in the BBC is typically indicative of corruption.
The BBC is way beyond redemption, utterly corrupt, and needs to be closed permanently.
Your sincerely, David Noakes (A: I’ll put this up tonight as well. It’s not a bad little article there.)
And little old Scotland, of course, had opened its mouth about something and they got lambasted of course by the most powerful organizations on the planet. It says…
Talks over Church of Scotland report on Israel
bbc.co.uk / 9 May 2013
The Church of Scotland has held "useful" discussions with the Jewish community over a controversial report which questioned the divine right of Jews to the land of Israel.
The 10-page discussion paper will be debated and voted on at the Kirk's (A: That’s the church.) general assembly later this month.
Israel's ambassador to the UK has described it as "truly hurtful".
A spokeswoman for the Kirk stressed it was not denying Israel's right to exist.
But she accepted the 10-page discussion paper, entitled The Inheritance of Abraham? A report on the Promised Land, "has given cause for concern and misunderstanding of its position".
“Concern should not be misunderstood as questioning the right of the State of Israel to exist” Church of Scotland spokeswoman
A new introduction to set the context for the report and give clarity about some of the language used was required, she added.
The spokeswoman said: "The concern of the Church about injustices faced by the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territories remain firm but that concern should not be misunderstood as questioning the right of the State of Israel to exist.
"Sitting round the table and listening to each other more deeply has created a real opportunity for both communities to better understand each other and that this report now becomes a catalyst for continued and growing conversation. (A: In other words, they’re now meeting with members of the Jewish communities, the most powerful organizations on the planet, who always. I mean, they’re well organized, and they won’t stand any criticism whatsoever. Other countries should copy this, you know. But I noticed at this table there’s no representatives of Palestine here, you see.)
"The two communities have agreed to work together both here and in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories to continue what was a very positive dialogue."
The talks were held between representatives of the Kirk and Jewish groups including the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
The report, which was compiled by the Kirk's church and society council, stated there has been a widespread assumption by many Christians, as well as many Jewish people, that the Bible "supports an essentially Jewish state of Israel".
“Would the Jewish people today have a fairer claim to the land if they dealt justly with the Palestinians?” Church of Scotland report
But its authors said an "increasing number of difficulties and current Israeli policies regarding the Palestinians" had led to this viewpoint being questioned.
They wrote: "Possession of any land is clearly conditional. The question that arises is this: Would the Jewish people today have a fairer claim to the land if they dealt justly with the Palestinians?"
Biblical promises about the land of Israel were never intended to be taken literally, or as applying to a defined geographical territory, the report argued.
Instead, it said: "They are a way of speaking about how to live under God so that justice and peace reign, the weak and poor are protected, the stranger is included, and all have a share in the community and a contribution to make to it.
"The 'promised land' in the Bible is not a place, so much as a metaphor of how things ought to be among the people of God. This 'promised land' can be found - or built - anywhere.
"The desire of many in the state of Israel to acquire the land of Palestine for the Jewish people is wrong. The fact that the land is currently being taken by settlement expansion, the separation barrier, house clearance (A: Where they knock all the houses down.) theft and force makes it doubly wrong to seek biblical sanction for this."
The report said that the enormity of the Holocaust "has often reinforced the belief that Israel is entitled to the land unconditionally". (A: And they do use the Holocaust to its full extent, you see. People feel guilty about it even if they’ve got nothing to do with it. But the thing is, it doesn’t permit Israel then to become the very thing that they hated the most, uniforms, barbed wire, and another people on the other side of it.)
"There is guilt among Western Christianity about centuries of anti-Semitism that led to discrimination against the Jews, culminating in the total evil of the Holocaust," it suggested.
"There is also a belief among some Jewish people that they have a right to the land of Israel as compensation for the suffering of the Holocaust."
While stopping short of calling for economic and political boycotts and sanctions against the state of Israel, as church leaders from South Africa did last year, the report said the issue "raises particular questions for the Church of Scotland as we seek to respond to the question: "What does the Lord require of you…?"
The paper will be voted on by delegates at the church's general assembly in Edinburgh, which is due to begin on 18 May.
The Israeli ambassador to the UK, Daniel Taub, said: "This report not only plays into extremist political positions, but negates and belittles the deeply held Jewish attachment to the land of Israel in a way which is truly hurtful.
"If a document of this nature is adopted by the Church of Scotland it would mark a significant step backwards for the forces of tolerance and peace in our region." (A: And that’s the whole point of it. Do you see much tolerance towards the Palestinians?)
Ephraim Borowski, director of the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, has previously condemned the report as an "outrage to everything that interfaith dialogue stands for" (A: Well, interfaith dialogue doesn’t mean that one group just caves in.) and called on the Church of Scotland to withdraw it ahead of the general assembly. (A: What would John Knox have said about this? I don’t think he would’ve backed down here. And Robbie Burns either, eh? “Wee, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie”. Anyway that’s fairly standard.)
As I say, people should emulate Israel, and whenever they’re attacked, and anywhere, any media across the planet, all stand up together and do the same kind of thing. That’s how you get power, and it creates solidarity amongst your people, and you can be proud that you all stand up together and attack anything that’s negative about you from anybody else.

South Australian government looking into 'Big Brother'-style network that taps into phones to track movements with owners' permission
news.com.au / Valerina Changarathil From: The Advertiser / March 28, 2013
A 'BIG Brother' sensor network for South Australia that taps into smartphones, with their owners' permission, to track people's movements is being discussed by the State Government.
The SenSA initiative looks at "recognizing that not all data of public interest is in government hands", Premier Jay Weatherill said.
The data collected could be used to guide urban planning, transport and other initiatives like neighbourhood needs and even work conditions. (A: They always give you a fairly, you know, honest sounding thing to get these things through, and practical things.)
Environment Protection Authority South Australia chief executive Dr Campbell Gemmell has been tasked with convening a "roundtable" feasibility discussion to explore this idea further.
Academic, community and industry stakeholders will be asked to discuss implications and decide whether it is a good idea and if it is a good idea, the ways in which it can be implemented.
Telemetry data about people's daily travel to a secure and anonymous mapping service would give better-quality information than we have ever had to guide all sorts of decisions, Mr Weatherill said. (A: So they want to track everybody, and all their movements, all the time.)
The concept is an example of the "fresh thinking" the government wants to encourage within the IT sector through the government's discussion paper on the ICT sector called SA Connected, which was also released yesterday.
In 2010, the Transport Department tapped into mobile phones using a bluetooth signal tracking system to collect data to determine the best route for the O-Bahn extension to the city. (A: And so on and so on, and it tells you how they’re going into it. And it’s more invasion of privacy, of course, so they can track everybody 24 hours a day. Fairly standard stuff that’s happening everywhere, in, you know, all the Democratic countries.)
And I knew this was coming, because I said, out of the Jimmy Savile affair, and the hullabaloo, and all the even higher people, royalty, etc, that have been protected by that, and nobility, the ones that have been into pedophilia for many, many years, well known by all the press, by the way. I knew that eventually what they’d do is just go the opposite way, what they would get out of it would never be what you expected, not the rest or so on. No, they’ll call to end the term pedophilia altogether. Because you see, the big boys want this to be eliminated. Remember what I mentioned before to do with the Frankfort School? Destroy the cultures, right down to the very base, the cement that held them together and made them function. That means every single bit of it. Everything that you believed in and loved and everything else, totally, utterly destroyed. Everything that was practical and sensible and worked had to be destroyed. Then they’d rebuild the culture all over, the global culture that is. And that meant too, that there’s no such thing as underage sex with children. And here it comes, of course…
Stop persecuting ageing celebrities and lower age of consent:
UK barrister Barbara Hewson
dailytelegraph.com.au / Jamie Grierson - Press Association / May 09, 2013
So I’ll go into this article when I come back. But it’s not a surprise to me. Mind you, she wants a bit of fame, because she likes to get on television, this woman. Back with more after this.
Hi folks, I’m Alan Watt. We’re back Cutting Through The Matrix talking about what’s… You can always tell what’s going to happen, because eventually they want, they really do want to do away with the age of consent altogether. In some countries they’ve already lowered it, for homosexuality, down to 14 years. And they want to go lower and abolish it all together. Anyway this lawyer in Britain, who sometimes appears on the BBC, apparently, with her viewpoints on different things, she specializes in the feminist agenda of course, and abortion rights and so on. Anyway she says that:
In an article for online publication Spiked, Hewson, a barrister (A: Which is a lawyer.) at Hardwicke chambers in London, who specializes in reproductive rights, called for the end of anonymity for complainants.
And the human rights lawyer labelled crimes committed by Hall (A: Who was another BBC guy who was arrested recently.), who recently admitted indecently assaulting 13 girls, the youngest aged just nine, as "low-level misdemeanors". (A: It makes you wonder about her own proclivities too, doesn’t it? Doesn’t it do that to you?)
In a statement, Hardwicke said: "We are shocked by the views expressed in Barbara Hewson's article in Spiked.
"We did not see or approve the article pre-publication and we completely dissociate ourselves from its content and any related views she may have expressed via social media or any other media outlets."
Her comments come as Scotland Yard continues (A: What they call) Operation Yewtree, an investigation split into three inquiries into allegations involving deceased presenter Jimmy Savile, claims involving Savile and others, and those involving just others.
A number of high-profile figures have been arrested under Yewtree such as entertainer Rolf Harris, former pop star Gary Glitter, DJ Dave Lee Travis, comedian Jim Davidson and PR guru Max Clifford.
All deny any wrongdoing. (A: Actually, a pedophiliac will always deny wrongdoing, because they don’t see it is doing anything wrong. They’ll say that’s their ‘preference’.)
Ms Hewson argued that "the post-Savile witch-hunting of ageing celebs echoes the Soviet Union" and said it is not difficult to see why some elderly defendants "conclude that resistance is useless". (A: Well, the Soviet Union was different because that was its politicians, the high politicians getting rid of other politicians to make room for their relatives; that’s generally what they did. Because it was all relatives that ran the Soviet Union, you know; there was just different big families of relatives, that actually came into the Soviet Union from elsewhere.)
She added: "But the low-level misdemeanors with which Stuart Hall was charged (A: Like, young girls.) are nothing like serious crime. Ordinarily, Hall's misdemeanors would not be prosecuted, and certainly not decades after the event. (A: So time is okay. I guess if you murdered somebody 20 years ago it’s okay now, eh.)
"What we have here is the manipulation of the British criminal justice system to produce scapegoats on demand. (A: Scapegoats who were kind of horny goats at the time, wouldn’t you say?)
"As for law reform, now regrettably necessary, my recommendations are remove complainant anonymity, introduce a strict statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil actions and reduce the age of consent to 13." (A: That’s her recommendations. It makes you wonder where she’s at, eh.)
Peter Watt, director of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) helpline, said: "These outdated and simply ill-informed views would be shocking to hear from anyone but to hear them from a highly experienced barrister simply beggars belief.
"Stuart Hall has pleaded guilty to abusing children as young as nine years old; we think most people would agree that crimes of this nature are incredibly serious.”

But as we all go down the tubes you see, with moral relativity, well… I guess whatever is wrong is just your own idea of right and wrong – that’s what they tell you – isn’t it? Isn’t it, folks? That’s why you’re so easily used and abused. And an awful lot worse to come, with the Masters of the world.
From Hamish and myself from Ontario, Canada, it’s good night and may your God or your Gods GO with you.
