Election 2016: You May Not Be Interested in Parapolitics...



So this is what it's like when the wheels start to come off, when the cancer consumes the host. 

I had a nightmare a long time ago, that there was a Presidential election and the candidates were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Well, that's not actually true. Not even in my most fevered, delirious states could I have imagined such a national tragedy.

And the tragedy is just warming up, out there in the driveway.

Of course, what may actually be happening is that the grown-ups, the men and women who risk life and limb in the oligarchal pursuit of Empire, may well have tired of all the freaks and sickos who are constantly fucking everything up and may well be in the process of taking the matches away from these political pyromaniacs. 

It may well turn out that whoever wins on Tuesday will be nothing but a figurehead, and will almost certainly be brought to heel by larger forces behind the scenes.

We can only hope.

BUT, ACTUALLY...

The leaks we've been seeing have been blamed on a number of players-- the Russians, Trumpkins, UFO hackers-- but the smart money is on the Deep State. And the bookmakers would almost certainly bet the house that what we've seen is just the tip of the iceberg, the shot across the bow. 

And although the media-- and by media I mean the Democratic Party house organs and information agents who make up what passes for a national mainstream media in this country†-- have kept the lid on the powderkeg, I very much get the feeling that both candidates (yes, I said both) are rattled. Why?

Because I think someone else has taken control of the wheel and has let the ostensible top dogs know it. And let them know that none of their secrets are safe anymore.


A POX ON BOTH THEIR HOUSES

One thing I will say for this farce of an election is how it has exposed how corrupt and complicit the so-called two-party system is, how fatuous and empty the Republican platform is, how it endlessly screws the hardworking people who keep that dead horse propped up.

There's no question now that the establishment media is just a propaganda arm for the Democratic Party (sic), which itself is nothing else but the old Rockefeller Republican Party with a politically correct facelift. There's no question that the fixes are all in, that the power structure is one big happy club that despises those they rule over. 

We always suspected it. Now we know it.

Well, that's the conventional wisdom. But this is SecretSun '16, so I'd be remiss if I didn't mention all the high weirdness that's kicked up recently as well. So let's go...


When I was a kid there was a line about Richard Nixon, Hillary Clinton's spiritual antecedent. Everyone seemed to think that Nixon didn't do anything everyone else in Washington wasn't doing, he simply had the misfortune to get caught.


 It's amazing how common this opinion was, from adults down to teenagers, maybe even younger kids as well (getting caught being an ever-pressing concern for kids, of course). The question became why he was caught.

I've heard the media complain that Hillary is the victim of a "witchhunt". This seems to be the default explanation for why all this damaging information is coming to light. Funny, I don't recall them using that term during Watergate or Iran-Contra. 

But what if there's some truth to this? 

What if Hillary has been targeted? Is it because she's a "strong woman?" Is it because she actually is a witch, with a documented history in the occult?  Or it simply because she's a  longtime ethics offender? Or is it because of something else, something that the Deep State doesn't want nosey Washington hacks getting involved with? 

Remember this story?
Hillary Clinton Gives U.F.O.Buffs Hope She Will Open the X-Files

“Hillary has embraced this issue with an absolutely unprecedented level ofinterest in American politics,” said Joseph G. Buchman, who has spentdecades calling for government transparency about extraterrestrials.
 
Mrs. Clinton, a cautious candidate who often bemoans being the subjectof Republican conspiracy theories, has shown surprising ease plunging intothe discussion of the possibility of extraterrestrial beings.
She has said in recent interviews that as president she would releaseinformation about Area 51, the remote Air Force base in Nevada believed bysome to be a secret hub where the government stores classified informationabout aliens and U.F.O.s.
In a radio interview last month, she said, “I want to open the files as muchas we can.” Asked if she believed in U.F.O.s, Mrs. Clinton said: “I don’t know. Iwant to see what the information shows.” But she added, “There’s enoughstories out there that I don’t think everybody is just sitting in their kitchenmaking them up.”
Oh, I can just feel your eyes rolling. But bear with me here a moment. There's a very real and tangible issue here at work.

Watergate lawyer Douglas Caddy claims that E.Howard Hunt (the real-life model for the Cigarette-Smoking Man of The X-Files) told him that JFK was assassinated because he wanted to open the secret files on UFO technology.

Sounds crazy, right? Only there's a memo written by JFK ordering such a thing written less than two weeks before his death.

President Gerald Ford made a lot of noise about UFOs when he was Speaker of the House, and instigated actions that led to the formation of the Condon Committee (which of course turned out to be a whitewash). Ford remained active on the issue, in large part due to pressure from constituents.


But when he became President he fell silent on the issue. But it was during his Presidency that many of the documents that made UFOlogy such a focal point for conspiracy culture were prepared for declassification. 

It was also during his Presidency that the MK ULTRA program was revealed to the public. And wouldn't you just know it, Ford was the victim of two assassination attempts. 

One was by ol' Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, late of the Manson Family/Process Church axis, speaking of MK ULTRA (and more importantly, MK OFTEN). The other was by Sara Jane Moore, who was fixated on Patty Hearst and the "Symbionese Liberation Army", created by another MK OFTEN graduate, former Vacaville inmate Donald DeFreeze.

Gee, interesting "coincidences" there.

His successor, Jimmy Carter, was even more activist on the UFO issue, promising that,  "If  I ever become President I"ll make every piece of information this country has about UFOs sightings available to the public, and the scientists."

Carter expanded the powers of the FOIA program in 1978, freeing up reams of previously classified documents, proving the long involvement of the US Government in the UFO issue.

Not long after there was an Islamic Revolution in US client state Iran and the US Embassy was seized and its occupants held hostage for months. Carter ordered a rescue mission but it ended in disaster.*

That and the extended siege at the embassy crippled Carter's Presidency, and the later Iran-Contra scandal revealed that elements within the Reagan campaign worked with the hostage takers in an arms-for-ransom arrangement in order to prevent Carter's "October Surprise", the release of the Americans before the national elections.

That's three Presidents with interest in UFOs, three unfortunate outcomes, for those of you keeping score at home.

Ronald Reagan was another one, having had his own sightings. After his re-election he'd begin talking up the issue, claiming that alien threats would act as a uniting force in a world divided by politics and religion. Then he lost the Senate. Then Iran-Contra happened. 


Undeterred apparently, Reagan continued discussing the issue, even raising it at the United Nations.

George Bush the Elder, higher up the food chain than his predecessors, largely avoided the issue. His successor, Bill Clinton, stuck his hand into the hornet's nest and ordered an investigation into the Roswell event. When he was unhappy with the results he ordered another. He had one of his lieutenants search the archives for information on the UFO issue and on Area 51.

Then he was impeached.

At the same time, New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff attempted to open an investigation into the Roswell issue by subpoenaing the base's financial records. He contracted an aggressive form of cancer and died at the age of 51.**

Clinton's successor, George W. Bush, was in office during the largest expansion of the National Security State this country had seen since 1947 (shortly after Roswell, in case you wondering), effectively starving the UFO Conspiracy community of oxygen for good.

Bush's successor, Barack Obama, made some vague noises about looking into the issue while campaigning. But as he did with nearly everything else to do with national security, followed in his predecessor's footsteps. And then some.

Obama has enjoyed a largely scandal-free, two-term Presidency.

Hillary Clinton made it a point to announce her attention to look into UFOs -- and more importantly, Area 51-- and her campaign is being run by Washington power player's power player John Podesta, who has also expressed interest in UFOs.

And I believe you know the rest.

You see, you don't have to believe in ET or anything like that at all for all of this to work. 

What we're really looking at are the elected officials of the US Government and their allies sticking their noses into the business of the real government, black projects, black ops and the secret space program and all the rest of it. 


We're seeing the elected government going up against the actual government and getting its ass kicked.


MANY MILES AWAY

For added high weirdness, there's also the mysterious "pinging" the Canadian Navy has reported under the Arctic Ocean. From The Guardian
In a statement, Department of National Defence spokeswoman Ashley Lemire said: “The Canadian armed forces are aware of allegations of unusual sounds emanating from the seabed in the Fury and Hecla Strait in Nunavut. The air crew performed various multi-sensor searches in the area, including an acoustic search for 1.5 hours, without detecting any acoustic anomalies. 

This may be purely coincidental but there's also the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry is taking an official trip to the Antarctic after the election, along with the usual marching-order receiving trips to our Gulf State paymasters.

 Are the Old Ones stirring, at long last?

Note blood-soaked statue of child

Before you answer, don't forget the whole Spirit Cooking thing.

I won't go into "cheese pizza" and all the rest of it because it looks some of that is being walked back (believe it or not, walnut sauce is an actual recipe for pasta). That's not to say there is not a whole lot of pedo-fire behind the smoke (like Anthony Weiner's sexting and Bill Clinton's trips to Lolita Island) but there's a strong possibility there may be some water-muddying and misinfo-seeding going on in an attempt to discredit some of the more tangible revelations.

There's also the issue of the Seth Rich murder, who some have claimed was the sources for the now-forgotten "DNC eMails". His parents are opening an investigation into his murder, as are other interested parties. Interesting. Something seems to have changed their minds since Julian Assange raised the issue a few months ago.  

Yes, if Hillary wins, it's going to be Scandalpalooza 'round the clock. Count on it.

And then there's "Spirit Cooking."

Alex Jones and company are all over this, wringing a lot of mileage over what seems to be an invitation that was never RSVP'd. But it's one of those moments when the veil drops and we get a look inside the moral sickness of the ruling cabals.


Marina Abramovic is a hardcore occultist who presents her work as performance art. Her work reminds us of nothing less than the "art ritual murder" of David Bowie's Clinton-era comeback album, 1.Outside (note "Ramona A. Stone" with Baphomet goat). But a male artist could never get away with the hideous desecration of women and children evident in her work.

Abramovic's CV is filled with the tedious conceptual nonsense that the art world endlessly pimped in the wake of the CIA-spawned abstract expressionist movement. Just reading descriptions of her work is tiresome.

But along the way Abramovic discovered the occult, specifically some black magic strain that we haven't heard about, probably practiced by some rich psychotics in some castle in Europe somewhere. During a Reddit chat she let it be known she takes the occult aspect of her work seriously. 
Q: "What place do you see the occult having within contemporary art; can magick be made (not simply appropriated/ performed)?"  
A: "Everything depends on which context you are doing what you are doing. If you are doing the occult magic in the context of art or in a gallery, then it is the art. If you are doing it in different context, in spiritual circles or private house or on TV shows, it is not art. The intention, the context for what is made, and where it is made defines what art is or not."
Spirit Cooking seems to borrow from the Thelemic concept of the "cake of light", itself a borrowing of certain fringe Gnostic sects in the early Christian era. But there's plenty of good old-fashioned Satanism in evidence as well.


We saw the ostensible fingerprints of MK-OFTEN all over the work of filmmakers like Roman Polanski, William Friedkin and Kenneth Anger and we've seen the connections of MK-ULTRA legates to the Satanic Temple. Is MK OFTEN's successor program behind promoting the work of Abramovic?

What is perhaps less disturbing than the Spirit Cooking revelation is this despicable installation (it's too disgusting to post here), all-too reminiscent of the work of the Chicago Ripper Crew, the Satanic serial killers who abducted, tortured and cannibalized women in the late 1970s (and are linked to John Wayne Gacy, himself a player in Democratic Party circles before his arrest).

This "performance" not only degrades women and glorifies murder and cannibalism, it also desensitizes all these chi-chi people to partaking in ritual murder.  This is gratuitous provocation and an invitation to escalation for those inclined to investigate the thrills of ritual murder in a more private setting. 

Now again, this is just an invitation that Podesta didn't seem to respond to. But that doesn't matter.

The consensus -- where this stuff is kept a very safe distance away from our public culture-- is ripped open once again, like Reagan's astrologer, like the Bush family's involvement in the very weird rituals of Skull and Bones, the weird sacrifice rituals at Bohemian Grove (based on a 19th Century equivalent of Burning Man), Bill and Hillary's voodoo and seance activity and on and on it goes. 


We're looking at the new Franklin Scandal unfolding before our eyes, an umbrella outrage that will fuel others, real and/or imagined, and continue to metastasize for years to come. If Trump does indeed lose his embittered supporters have reams of frankly appalling evidence of crimes, misdemeanors and sins to stoke their resentments with.

Revolutions have started with far, far less.

UFOs and occultism all seem like trifles to so many people, especially apparently-skeptical Millennials. But the problem is that once you get past the lower levels of society and start climbing the ladder you soon find out that people don't think the way you do and have what you might regard as weird beliefs. Beliefs that shape how all of our lives are lived, unfortunately.

It's like my grandmother always used to tell me, "You may not be interested in parapolitics, but parapolitics are interested in you."º


POSTSCRIPT: The FBI announced tonight it will let its earlier decision not to pursue charges in the Clinton email scandal stand, despite having received the evidence only recently. I'm not at all surprised- as I told a friend earlier I believe the powers-that-be want a Clinton victory for a number of tactical reasons.

The email issue is not going away, I'd guess it's now  almost guaranteed the Congress will launch their own investigation into the matter, which will certainly aggravate the bitter partisan rancor we're going to be swamped with in the next four years. 


Donald Trump is outraged, 
actually claiming rightfully that there was no way a proper investigation could have done in the period of time since the emails were discovered. And of course there wasn't. I think this too is part of the calculus, to ratchet up division and resentment and render the country essentially ungovernable.

It's been my opinion all along that whoever wins Tuesday will come to wish they didn't.  

POST-POSTSCRIPT: Politico demonstrates the Establishment is still clearly in panic mode, by unleashing all sorts of hollow threats and invective on FBI Director James Comey on Hillary's behalf. Why? Here's why:

While Comey's Sunday letter may have lessened the political impact of his earlier disclosure about new evidence in the Clinton email case, the FBI chief did not say the investigation was being shut down. He ruled out prosecution only of Clinton and did not offer the same assurance about Abedin or any other officials whose conduct was examined in the first round of the FBI probe.
Yeah, I doubt there's much celebration on the Clinton campaign plane. 

POSTPOSTPOSTSCRIPT: Oh yes, I do believe Mr. Podesta pissed off the wrong people.

POSTPOSTPOSTPOSTSCRIPT: Yeah, now that more information has been released I most certainly think there's plenty of fire to be found in the "pizza" smoke. More than plenty.

What the actual f**k is wrong with people? 



† The mainstream media, which any thinking person knows is nothing but an amen corner for the ruling elite, doesn't realize it's a dead man walking, in much the same way the Catholic hierarchy didn't when the abuse scandals began to break. It's in a lot more trouble than people realize, as it audiences and readerships are walking away in droves. 

 And we now have the smoking guns, the emails soliciting favorable rewrites and approvals from politicians, and there's certainly more to come. It may take a while for the reality to sink into that 30% of the populace who still takes the media at face value, but once push comes to shove- and it will- all but the most ardent "Comrade Napoleon is always right" types will wake up and smell the coffee. 

In much the same way that all the big accounts will realize that they've been throwing their money away advertising online.

* And of course, Canadian diplomats and CIA agents absconded some artwork created by UFO/Ancient Astronaut obsessive Jack Kirby for an unproduced Roger Zelzany adaption called Lord of Light and used it as cover to smuggle some of the hostages out of Teheran.

** Schiff died of what I call a nasty case of UFOlogy.

º She never actually said that. I just made it up.

  1. It would be interesting to know about your grandmother. Don´t seem like the usual kind.

    Art and Mysticism/spirituality/the occult/goes a long way back. All the way back, I guess.

    As for CIA and the art world (which is bullshit in many ways, though not all), I´m sure they had their fingers in that pie, too, making efforts as usual to exploit it for their own murky purposes. But saying that they spawned abstract expressionism is going to far. Unless they somehow got to Hilma af Klint in 1906, Kandinsky in the 1910´s etc., who are among the artists seen as the first abstract pioneers. (Interestingly these two were completely inspired by the spiritual and mystic, af Klint in a very direct way, part of the zeitgeist certainly back then, Theosophy etc. That would make an interesting post).
    And the rest of the whole shebang of artists step-by-step dismantling representative art during the last part of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th. This is where abstract expressionism fits in and springs from in large parts.


    Maybe in the future a global security state will control every motivation in our hearts and every action we take. They´re certainly working on it. But, back then, Picasso´s instinctual beast-man drive was not their invention.

    (That he was in confluence with some kind of other powers I´m pretty sure, though. After all, art is magic, really.)

    1. I don't think intelligence agencies ever actually create anything- they hunt and peck which they find most useful for the goals and put their armies of psychologists to work steering the ship in the direction they want it all to go. The same goes with modern art as with the drug culture. Only someone completely ignorant of real history thinks the CIA "created the counterculture"- they appropriated aspects of it, certainly. Others they couldn't penetrate.

  2. The story about this in the Independent is fascinating as such, sure, about the CIA financing and backing the avant-garde of the day to further world-dominion. But the article says, also: "Would Abstract Expressionism have been the dominant art movement of the post-war years without this patronage? The answer is probably yes. Equally, it would be wrong to suggest that when you look at an Abstract Expressionist painting you are being duped by the CIA."

    2. Artists tend to travel a lot between metro areas. They also tend to carry their artwork with them from place to place. And being self-employed, few will ask them where their money is coming from.

  3. Interesting post Chris. Went to Alien Con last weekend. I traveled there with a friend of mine, Jack Heart from Tek-Gnostics.net. Lordee Lordee, we kept a synch log for 3 1/2 days. Some synchs were almost immediate, most all were profound. We sold a book called The Tek-Gnostic Heresies, and with good fortune sold out. 15,000 people attended. I did get the opportunity to visit with the two people on my bucket list William Henry and Johnathan Young. I went to two forums, one the ancient Anunnaki the other a full panel of the Ancient Alien TV show. Both were of interest. Many people visited our booth, many synchromystic conversations. The Alien Con adventure was a lot of fun. My confidence for a immanent disclosure is large. What are they doing in there! Shine forth brave souls! Dennis

  5. Fantastic article!

    I've generally come to the same conclusions regarding the deep state and the UFO question. It is really the only thing that can adequately explain the power shift that occurred in the Establishment post-WWII. From roughly the end of the Civil War till WWII the Northeastern banking interests dominated (but never totally controlled) the American political sphere.

    But by 1960 the military and the intelligence community had gained unprecedented power. Prior to WWII, the military had been am marginal force in American society while the intelligence community was all but nonexistent. Afterwards they controlled vast budgets (and equally vast black budgets) that, if not equal to the Overworld, were more than enough to challenge the status quo.

    Many explanations have been put forth for this shift, but increasingly I think the most compelling is that the national security apparatus learned something from the UFO phenomenon that left the Overworld on the outside looking in. If the Hillary revelations are any indication, they are still trying to pierce the veil.

    And the deep state certainly does not appear to be taking this laying down. I think even more significant were the recent comments made by Erik Prince (Blackwater founder)concerning not only Bill but Hillary's trips to Lolita island.. Prince did a lot of dirty work for the deep state during the Bush II years. He no doubt knows where a lot of bodies are buried and he has had an axe to grind with the Democrats since Obama went after his CIA contracts. That he's the one hinting at some kind of pedo-ring behind the Clinton machine should raise some real eyebrows.

    I totally agree that who ever wins this election is screwed. I think TPTB know the next four years are going to be really rough and whoever wins is going to be a one term president. This is why two fading political dynasties were rolled out as the initial choices and a circus clown has replaced Jeb Bush. No one with any semblance of a political future wants any part of the next four years.

    2. When Hillary and Podesta talk about "getting to the truth" about UFOs and Area 51, they're not talking about Reticulans and the Ashtar Command. They're talking about messing with what even the Boston Globe called "the secret government". And how did that turn out for them? Not too well, if even the mainstream media has to write headlines like "No, John Podesta didn't drink blood" and so on. And those composite sketches? Nice touch. Everyone is focused on the FBI "clearing" Hillary, but the investigation is ongoing and it very much looks like her entire circle may be taken down one by one, either by this probe or by Congress.


      I was talking about all this with a friend and we were stunned by all the questions that you raise, that you never see raised in the media. Even the alternative media. And why is it you can talk about mind control, 9/11 and elite pedophilia and all the rest of it all the livelong day but talk about UFOs and suddenly your life expectancy starts to shorten? Because of Greys and Reptilians?

  6. Psi war now. The Deep State is part of this, so is Donald Trump, but so is /pol/. The political dissidence in this country has a number of factions, each with varying goals, methodologies, and reasons. But personally I would advise you to have faith in Trump, at least until he gives us a reason otherwise. This electoral cycle couldn't have happened if he weren't the man he is and didn't have the support of a huge cabal of dissident mages, both official and otherwise. In fact I think Trump is psi talented as well. Of course, the energies he taps are a little more Apollonian and a little less HP Lovecraft by way of Jeffery Dahmer.

  7. Chris,
    Whoa. You've done it again. In spades.
    So what is actually being perpetrated here? Long story short, the extremely stilted and veiled language in the Hillary/Podesta emails ($40,000 for a pizza, walnut sauce, etc) as well as the intricacies of the Tom DeLonge/Podesta/Peter Levenda connection is more than worthy of extensive investigation.

    Only a few months ago Jasun Horusley and Levenda went into a protracted back-and-forth where Jasun called out Levenda for his complete alibi-ing of Aleister Crowley where Levenda fairly absolved AC for any and all hints of darkness in his worldview and resume, up to and including the constant references to child sacrifice.

    Suddenly that old Hillary quote of "sacrificing a chicken to Moloch" doesn't seem quite as glib as it used to. Overall something is really REALLY wrong here.

    When I scour the interwebs for this story, and all I find is you, me (http://mcmmadnessnews.blogspot.com/2016/11/breaking-witchcraft.html), Jasun over at Auticulture (https://auticulture.wordpress.com/2016/11/06/here-come-the-designer-fascists-the-perception-managers-last-hurrah/), and Alex Jones??

    To me, this is absolutely frightening, and HUGE. As a commentator at Auticulture said, this is potentially a far bigger deal than the whole Savile situation ever was. And once again, you deserve the loudest and longest applause for being by far the most literate on this, and the most ahead of the curve.

    Not to get all synchromystic on you, but isn't it weird in the extreme that when you open all those MK-OFTEN and MK-ULTRA doors, these things begin manifesting and crawling through the veil into the here and now? Yes, talk about putting the 'para' in parapolitics! Brings to mind that whole abyss line, and how when you look into it...

I was a bit stunned when The Exorcist came back as a TV show- I actually hadn't heard about that. I had read about the connections between the Satanic Temple and the FMSF several years ago but it got lost in the shuffle (I read way too much, really). But having been through phase one of the program I could spot the traces. Interesting that Jay-Z shilled for Hillary recently- how gangsta of him.

  12. Amazing work, Chris. I read this literally right after reading about the death of Max Spiers. While he was a theorist investigating UFOs and elite occultism, his death brought to mind the fate of MI6 agent Gareth Williams (long forgotten, but was apparently responsible for Clinton email hacks before his death a few years ago), and how Vauxhall Cross likes to make a show of things. At least Spiers was able to warn his family of his impending fate beforehand. Very chilling stuff given the timing of it all now.

  13. "Many Miles Away"

    Good reference, Chris. The synchronicity of these events are gaining clarity for even the most obtuse to be able to halfway recognize as something important albeit dire on their radars.

    This blog post lands right where a lot of people are on the cusp of realization and once again, you have put words around it. Especially for people who are just straight up bewildered by how we even got to this place in our politics and how these tired old tactics look so obvious right now.

    Never before, to my recollection, have we been more aware of the goings on behind the first and maybe even the second horned ivory gate of the American political process as it is in this current election. All these old disguises are so blatantly exposed as both sides are being laid bare to some extent. We see certain factions of the biased media panting to keep up appearances as more and more pieces are chipping away or that are being allowed to chip away.

    I agree, it is almost like whatever these forces are that have been behind the compartmentalized puppet actors fronting their operations, they seem to be trying to impart some kind of lessons that will no doubt be reverberating through all our head spaces sooner than later. Or maybe, its just the next step in their long term endgame.

    After all, the people in true power historically never respect their willing dupes and often regard them with even more contempt than those they ignorantly enthrall.

  14. Whoa yourself. Jasun didn’t “call me out” on my so-called “alibi-ing” of Aleister Crowley. He made stuff up. That’s not the same thing. Why do everyone’s critical faculties go out the window when the subject of occultism, magic and especially Crowley comes up? Are we still living in the Middle Ages, in a Church-controlled monarchy somewhere? Hasn’t there been a wealth of academic research undertaken on these issues in the last 50 years or so? Have we lost our sense of perspective? Again?

    At the risk of repeating myself endlessly on this topic – and as I went to considerable pains to clarify in my exchanges with Jasun, to no obvious avail – I was not and do not defend Crowley or his actions. I merely pointed out that there is no evidence he engaged in human sacrifice or the sexual abuse of children. For Jasun, that means I am defending Crowley. For Wordman, that I am absolving Crowley. Jasun and his followers believe the stories they've made up, in spite of the fact that they have no actual proof of any of this. They just assume that Crowley was a bad man and therefore he must have done every evil thing they can imagine, and if I don’t agree with them then I must be part of the problem. That’s their right, I suppose, or at least their predilection. But this is a serious subject and deserves objective, rational treatment.

    This lumping together of everything you don’t like into one box called “Satanism” does no one any service. There are definitions for these things. There is ample evidence that Crowley lived a libertine lifestyle and committed all sorts of outrages against social conventions, usually deliberately. His relationships with women were horrendous, for instance. He abused drugs. He frequented prostitutes. He behaved badly towards all sorts of people, including those who were his lovers and friends. I have never stated otherwise, so how can I be accused of “absolving” Crowley for “any and all hints of darkness”? Seriously? More bad reporting and misrepresentation of what I wrote, and that’s about par for the course these days. (I guess you're either on the bus, or off the bus.)

  15. When pressed, Jasun asked me if I did not believe that there was an international cabal of Satan-worshipping child abusers and I had to tell him no. There are international child trafficking groups, of course, all over the world. There are organized crime rings from Asia to Europe to Africa, Latin America and North America that specialize in human trafficking and especially of children and young women. There are also Satanists in other countries, of course (although not so many in Asia or Africa, as you might imagine). That a Satanist may be a child molester is entirely possible. But not all child molesters are Satanists any more than all Satanists are child molesters. This conflating of “Satanism” – and everyone has their own definition of what this, which makes things even more complicated – with pedophilia only serves to muddy the waters especially where law enforcement efforts are concerned. Why not focus on political cabals of child molesters, for which there is much more evidence, as Nick Bryant has demonstrated? Throwing “Satanism” into the mix results in a kind of misdirection where we focus more on the “spooky” quality of weird rituals in candlelit temples than it does on the sick perps themselves.

    To the point, Jasun is also a critic of Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey Kripal and has attacked their recent work, The Super Natural, on no logical grounds at all. One wonders if he even read the book before he posted his “review” on amazon. He has a visceral hatred of Strieber who has become a bit player in Jasun’s fantasy of UFO abductions as screen memories for … you guessed it … child abuse. There is no journalistic integrity there, no attempt at making a case based on any kind of fact, just gut feelings and emotionality. Salem witchcraft hysteria and “spectral evidence.” This is not “parapolitics”. It’s paranoia. They’re not the same thing. Read what I wrote. I was very clear as to the distinctions between what someone “feels” is true and what can be proved. In Jasun’s world, if there is no evidence of a crime then that is itself evidence that a crime was committed and successfully covered-up. It’s like having a theological conversation with the Mad Hatter.

  16. It reminds me of a “wandering bishop” I used to know. He lived in Toronto and had a publication in which he would report that certain other clergymen were now members of his own bogus church. When those clergymen objected, since they had never been members and didn’t even know the bishop, then the bishop would print another story in his publication saying that the clergymen were now excommunicated! He did this over and over again. And since it was in print, it must be true, right?

    “When did you stop beating your wife?”

    As for John Podesta, I met him once. Last year. During an interview session in which he was asked about UFO disclosure. What does that imply? The speculations are legion, of course. I’ve met a lot of people in my more than 60 years on the planet, from Nazis and Klansmen to “Satanists”, Buddhists, Daoists, Muslims, Orthodox Christians, Roman Catholic prelates, Chinese generals, Wiccans, Thelemites, FBI agents, CIA agents, KGB agents … the list is endless. It’s what I do. I research and investigate. I put myself out there to see what is going on. I learn to separate wheat from chaff (when possible), that is, information from disinformation and misinformation. If someone is going to speculate about any putative relationship between myself and John Podesta then it is only fair that they speculate about the other people I’ve met during my life -- beginning maybe with my gate-crashing of the Bobby Kennedy funeral when I was seventeen years old and a high school senior and thus obviously already a high-level agent of THRUSH or SPECTRE or SMERSH or something -- and build a more comprehensive (if probably equally erroneous) picture. Otherwise you’re only cherry-picking the facts to fit a preconceived conclusion. And that’s not good journalism or investigative reporting. It’s just spin. And haven’t we had enough spin lately?

    1. Levanda, well said. Thing is we live in a world where people care less for real scholarship now than they ever did, and as a whole they never did. Real scholarship paints a complex, ambiguous and multi-faceted picture of any and all things, and you have to do a lot of reading, research, employ critical thinking etc; and that doesn't fit the superficial and simplistic angel vs devil medieval lazy mode of emotional 'thinking' that predominates now probably more than it ever did; and so the scholarly material is simply dismissed, on a priori grounds as part of the establishment (or anti-establishment as the case may be) conspiracy.

    2. I'll weigh in here and put in the good word for Peter, who is always generous with his time and expertise and has done way more than his share when it comes to exposing high-level malfeasance. I know there's a belief that he's just a fox in the henhouse but be rational- players are out there playing. None of us have the reach or audience to make it worth some superspook bothering with us. Peter is a gentleman and a scholar and we should be grateful for his time, which he has given us way more than he needs to.

  17. This post helped put a lot into perspective. But I have a question: in light of the info on Hillary, what's your (& everyone else's here) take on her connection to the secretive group known as "The Family" or "The Fellowship":

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2007/09/hillarys-prayer-hillary-clintons-religion-and-politics

    Spiritual Warfare or "Triangulation" indeed. Everyone seems to have forgotten this little detail, but I recall when this info surfaced it made for more than a few waves.

    Quote:
    "When Clinton first came to Washington in 1993, one of her first steps was to join a Bible study group. For the next eight years, she regularly met with a Christian "cell" whose members included Susan Baker, wife of Bush consigliere James Baker; Joanne Kemp, wife of conservative icon Jack Kemp; Eileen Bakke, wife of Dennis Bakke, a leader in the anti-union Christian management movement; and Grace Nelson, the wife of Senator Bill Nelson, a conservative Florida Democrat.

    Clinton's prayer group was part of the Fellowship (or "the Family"), a network of sex-segregated cells of political, business, and military leaders dedicated to "spiritual war" on behalf of Christ, many of them recruited at the Fellowship's only public event, the annual National Prayer Breakfast. (Aside from the breakfast, the group has "made a fetish of being invisible," former Republican Senator William Armstrong has said.) The Fellowship believes that the elite win power by the will of God, who uses them for his purposes. Its mission is to help the powerful understand their role in God's plan."

    She seems to represent the right-wing tilt of neo-liberalism masquerading as democracy. But neo-liberalism is anything but democratic. & her concealed connections to the religious right are esp. troubling in light of that fact:

    http://www.salon.com/2015/04/25/progressives_cant_trust_hillary_clinton_on_cultural_and_economic_issues_the_problems_are_stark_and_decades_long/

    Note the emphasis on "Faith-Based Initiatives" that redirect Federal $ from social programs to religious ones.

    Quote:

    "The Fellowship isn’t out to turn liberals into conservatives; rather, it convinces politicians they can transcend left and right with an ecumenical faith that rises above politics. Only the faith is always evangelical, and the politics always move rightward."

    & Quote:

    "It should be a matter for public debate that political appointees in both parties are not only diverting federal funds to pursue political agendas well beyond the intent of Congress but also are deepening the government’s reliance on religious institutions as service providers. These trends do not seem to be aberrations and glitches in a fresh approach to the delivery of government services so much as a transpartisan program of neoliberal transformation of our government’s functions at all levels."

    Yeah, someone else IS calling the shots. Just sayin'.

  18. Some of the attention paid to these Occult revelations feels like the ramping-up of a political-religious crusade. Conservatives know how powerful these occult themes are and how they will emotionally impact people, especially the religiously intolerant. If Podesta or anyone else is found to be guilty of abuse they should certainly be prosecuted. However, these weaponized memes are blowing up in people's feeds and inboxes, working on a powerful emotional level, independent of any 'proof'. Dark, erotically charged material, used as a mechanism to catalyze will power, exactly the type of stuff Mr. Levenda discusses in his book Sinister Forces 3 when he investigated the work of Ioan Culianu and Giordano Bruno.

  20. Hopefully Peter Levenda is still around here to receive this transmission.

    Peter, first things first, I am a long time admirer or your work and research (multiple copies of Sinister Forces - all 3 - and Unholy Alliance) and consider you the occult Norman Mailer (a compliment.)

    My linking of you and DeLonge with Podesta came about because of the weird synchronicity of your meeting with him in proximity to these latest email disclosures, which you must admit, are weird in the extreme, not to mention highly suspicious. Plus the intimation of pedophile rings and missing children juxtaposed against the backdrop of UFO disclosure? Come on now.

    As far as the whole Crowley mess goes, to quote you yourself in your Nov.4 posting on peterlevenda.com "conspiracies may occur(may even be germinated) on levels that are beyond the understanding of even the conspirators themselves."
    Exactly.

    The ideology that Crowley was (cavalierly) playing with is loose in the world. Our own attitude has been its Force Multiplier. We can argue the particulars and minutiae of worldwide pedophile rings and satanic ritual abuse til the cows come home, but deep down, ALL of us perceive that something is incredibly wrong here. It's far past time that we all stopped parsing the definitions and details and just plain took responsibility. For what? For everything.

    When you say "when pressed, Jasun asked me if I did not believe that there was an international cabal of Satan-worshipping child abusers and I had to tell him no," you make me wonder, Peter. Perhaps the ultimate problem lies in the fact, as you admit and I concur, that everyone has their own definition of Satanic/Satanism. For me, child-torturing (and worse) pedophiles definitely fall under this rubric. By extrapolating from that stance, to say things like the Dutroux Affair in Belgium, Denny Hastert's problems, or the Second Mile in PA (and dozens of others)don't show signs of extreme lock-step coordination with higher governmental sources, well, that's just whistling past the graveyard. Like-minded individuals pursuing the same occult ideologies across continents that happen to belong to the same think tanks, foundations, and orders? I guess you could call that coincidence, but that would be stretching credulity, not to mention coincidence theory, to the breaking point.

    At this juncture, all of our Overton Windows are open as far as they'll go, and perhaps that's intended too. I'll just leave you with this classic from Jeff Wells at Rigorous Intuition,
    http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2005/08/doom-days.html
    which goes into the research of Rev.Ray Boeche and his inside DOD sources circa 1991-92 (admittedly both Christians) that had become alarmed at their superiors' research into psychotronic weapons and an obsessive effort to contact and attempt to control what were being referred to as NHI or non-human intelligences, and efforts to harness those NHI for military and intelligence ends.
    To quote "the efforts had progressed well past attempts at practical applications of David Bohm's theories, and had grown to encompass the use of 'satanic rituals/ritual magic along the lines of that espoused by Aleister Crowley, including human sacrifices."

    We've heard from Nick Redfern, Boeche, and Linda Howe on this; what say you and DeLonge? If you can say, because the conflicting stances are ambiguous.

    Respectfully, Wordman (RR)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Many thanks for the kind words. I will try to unpack your communication as much as I can. Also understand that I do not speak for Tom DeLonge or anyone else, just myself.

    We met John Podesta last year, not this year and not in proximity with the email disclosures. I am not certain what you mean by what you find suspicious in the emails, or where there is the intimation of pedophile rings, etc. or how they are in any way juxtaposed against the backdrop of UFO disclosure. How does that work, actually? Where is the juxtaposition? Or is that something you came across on Alex Jones? I met Podesta more than a year ago for a few hours max. Nothing before or since. And it was about UFO disclosure: that was the whole point of the meeting. We also met other experts at the time. Podesta is simply the most high-profile interviewee. It was part of the overall UFO project that I am working on. Nothing to do with pedophilia or satanism. Be careful of "guilt by association."

    And no: I don't agree that "it's far past time that we all stopped parsing the definitions," etc. That's just lazy and dangerous. In the first place, I have yet to see anyone pay much attention to parsing definitions in this field! Secondly, I am a writer and a researcher. I work with facts, with data. Definitions are an indispensable part of my work. They are not indispensable to many people in the New Age movement who freely conflate all sorts of people, places and things. Definitions matter. "Satanism" has a particular and very specific meaning for me (as it does for anyone who works within the religious studies field). You simply can't use it to describe activities or people you don't like. This isn't Salem in 1697. Or the Spanish Inquisition. We have to agree on language and what it means. We have to share a common vocabulary. Otherwise we are only screaming incomprehensibly at each other.

  22. You say that, for you, "child-torturing (and worse) pedophiles definitely fall under this rubric." That becomes your definition of Satanism, and it is one with which I simply cannot agree. Satanism is the worship of Satan; it was an anti-Church phenomenon. It has heavy theological and cultural overtones, as well as the performance of rituals such as the putative Black Mass, etc. There are so many pedophiles among clergy, politicians, celebrities, etc. that to call them all "Satanists" is misdirection. Face pedophilia for the horror it is, straight-on, and do not hide it behind loaded terminology that has little to do with the sexual abuse of children. To call it "Satanism" speaks more about you than it does about them.

    "Like-minded individuals pursuing the same occult ideologies across continents that happen to belong to the same think tanks," etc. Really? There are so many problems with that statement because of the assumptions you're making. What occult ideologies? I'm serious. What ideologies? I write about occult ideologies all the time. I'm familiar with a lot of them. I can quote you chapter and verse. Tell me who these people are, what ideologies they have, and what think tanks, etc. to which they belong. I would love to cover a story like this, and have spent decades following leads like this that have led nowhere. Perhaps, then, the failing is mine.

    I am not denying that there are organized groups of pedophiles (I repeat and repeat). I also do not deny that there are Satanists. I am against pedophilia, in case anyone has any doubts on that score! I prefer that their groups be discovered, identified, and broken up and the perpetrators arrested and subject to the full force of the law. That should be what we all want. But my information coming from law enforcement and other agencies around the world has not revealed any satanic organization behind this. The organizations that do exist are vile enough, believe me. Satanism would be a step up for most of these guys.

  23. The first casualty of war, they say, is the truth. I have to side with the truth, which means I am not free to make assumptions without data. If you are a fan of my work, you're familiar with the footnotes. I try to source what I report, as much as is possible. I am not a propagandist for or against Crowley, Satanism, etc. I know many people would prefer that I was. That's not my job. My job is to provide information. If you want to use what I write and create your own interpretation, well, that's what readers do. But when you ask me directly for an interpretation, then I will (reluctantly) agree. Sometimes. I prefer my work to stand on its own.

    And my statement that you quote, that "conspiracies may occur (may even be germinated) on levels that are beyond the understanding of even the conspirators themselves" is not a blank check for making things up.

    I'm sorry I am not telling you what you want to hear, but that isn't my goal. It never was, in all my years of research and writing. My goal is to tell it like I see it, and to be very careful of how I use language and of where the accusations may land. I don't want to be responsible for someone being called a Satanist and therefore a pedophile when he or she is not either one. The consequences could be fatal.

  24. It is very obviouse to anyone who does any mild research that the elite are into some sort of occult, satanic, "eye's wide shut" type of shit.
    How soon we forget the jimmy savile case in the uk, the British government is crawling with pedos.
    Recently the president of korea was revealed to have been controlled by a shaman this whole time, like, for real, south korea was controlled by a fucking shaman for the whole of park geun-hye's tenure.
    Our own government burns a giant owl effigy at bohemian grove.
    Surely people in these elite positions practice some sort of religion that the proles done.
    Maybe its satanism, but what is satanism anyways, there is laveyan satanism, there is the order of the nine angels, and who knows what other theistic and non theistic forms of satanism exist.
    Whether or not they are satanists, the elite is no doubt filled with pedos.

  25. Final thoughts for Peter,

    (I'll try and make this quick Chris!!)

    To paraphrase a recent Nobel prize winner, we're either serving one side or the other, whether we know it or not.
    Once again I'll repeat, to me, the harming of a child is evil and serves evil forces, ergo, the ultimate evil force. I think you and I Peter (I can't speak for Jasun) are disagreeing at cross purposes for nothing since we'd both (I hope) like to see the same outcome - the same type of world. Once again, we're just arguing definitions, and there are always going to be as many definitions in the world as there are people's viewpoints.

    Conflating people, places, and things is an exercise we've all been forced into - connecting the dots - since, as you know, history has shown these characters are not going to willingly "out" themselves, barring the limited hangouts of souls like Michael Aquino (who I think is guilty as hell, pardon the pun, of pretty much everything that's been leveled against him.)

    We get onto slippery ground when you say "my information coming from law enforcement and other agencies around the world has not revealed any satanic organization behind this." Once again, perhaps "satanic" by your definition, but we know these people by their deeds - "by their fruits you will know them." From the Finders case to what happened at the Presidio involving Aquino to McMartin and Dutroux, Hastert, Sandusky and on and on, the military, intelligence, law enforcement, and the legal system have been caught repeatedly covering for and aiding in these operations, sometimes (Sandusky, Hastert, Savile) for literally decades.

    For that and those ideology-sharing think-tanks and orders, I encourage you to check out Joel van der Reijden's Netherlands site while it's still up again (it's been taken down multiple times), isgp.nl or isgp-studies.com. Pay particular attention to this: https://isgp-studies.com/belgian-x-dossiers-of-the-dutroux-affair#USconnection

    Peter, it's been great (and civil!) talking with you, but I'm sure the patient Mr.Knowles is apoplectic at us turning his comments section into Point/Counterpoint like on the old 60 Minutes!
    And Peter, I would love your take on my take:
    http://mcmmadnessnews.blogspot.com/2016/10/samhain-and-sons-of-kaine.html

    and let's please please continue the conversation there in my comments section. I would honestly love it.

    1. [Preface: I claim no special knowledge or expertise in Performance Art. I only offer this as an anecdotal data point to share].

      I minored in music, and my 'minor thesis' was about the history of 'performance art', with a focus on Laurie Anderson, but it had to be a full history, thesis-sized (the size of a small book*). This is how you end up with an engineer who knows who Sol LeWitt, Nam June Paik, FLUXUS, most of the others from the 60s and 70s are.

      I had never heard of this woman before last week.

      Seriously, for someone who's supposedly been active and affiliated with groups like Fluxus since the 1960s... you'd think she would have left a bigger footprint? And this, at a time when there were hardly any women in that field.

      Again, claiming no special expertise! But I spent many hours, reading many books on a subject which did not come naturally to me. She def wasn't listed in any of the pubs I read back then.

      So I had that 'huh?' moment.

      If she WAS active back in the day, she wasn't as big in that scene as her Wikipedia entry (for example) would lead you to believe...

  28. The point about the national security establishment locking down any 'big' secrets concerning strange phenomenon made me think about how utterly weird the 1990s were. Certainly every decade has had strange things happen along with cultural reaction to them, but the 90s seems to me like the last time it really looked like the dam of enigmas was about to crack.

    Almost every week a story would come out that would make your head spin - the strange saga of the Gulf Breeze 6, Area 51 hitting the mainstream, remote viewers, Mars meteor life, rumours of Clinton being interested in UFO secrecy, odd cults like Aum creating actual weapons of mass destruction, the fin de siecle groups like the Solar Temple & Heaven's Gate, amateurs trying to create their own cold fusion systems... and not forgetting the possibly apocryphal tales of hackers searching for UFO paydirt: http://www.daves-world.co.uk/ufo/text/pages026-050/page29.html

    As of now many rumours of heinous child abuse done by establishment figures (Dutroux etc.) and a feeling that politics was being taken over by multinationals & monied interests.

    Even the most skeptical would look at this stuff and wonder what the hell was going on.

    Yet a couple of decades later and zero has changed. There's certainly lots of evidence something is happening, but it's pretty much been buried in a mass of disinformation and downright drivel.

    If the establishment has all the money & control of the legal/political/media system even substantial leaks can be sidelined.

    Where to go from here? I have considerable respect for researchers digging into these topics, although it must seem like a constant, thankless struggle.

  29. I think the issue here is a problem of definitions. Peter is talking about the classical expression of Satanism, a very high-minded dissident movement in the Renaissance and Enlightenment that draws on heretical Christianity and Paganism. This is where we get the Romantic conception of Satan as a kind of emo fallen angel, standing up against an unjust Heavenly bureaucracy.


    Wordman is talking about what law enforcement often refer to as "pseudo-Satanism", a system of mind control and taboo violation practiced by drug cartels, human traffickers and other criminal elements.


    There are also the uglier varieties of hand-me-down dipshit Satanism- the Richard Ramirez/Chicago Ripper/Black Metal Satanism which is variously linked to murder and/or extreme right political activity. So I'm afraid I have to disagree with both Wordman and Peter simply because "Satanism" is an overly broad and inexact category that fails to distinguish between a 18th century poet, a human trafficker and an affected suburban goth. It's like using "Islam" to describe Daesh, Turkish urbanites and Indonesian villagers. Satanism is an incomplete descriptor that absolutely requires a strong modifier to distinguish the various strands of it.


    I'm actually going to insist on this, since as much as I personally dislike Satanism (theistic or otherwise) the potential for bleedover is self-evident. For instance, the constant claims you see about Luciferianism out there, despite a total lack of actual evidence for such a thing, only got more irritating when I actually dug into the origin of this figure and discovered the original Lucifer was adopted as a figurehead of resistance against pretty much everythingthe self-appointed theorists claim "Lucifer" stood for.



    It only demonstrates the hypnotic power of an endlessly recycled untruth. I don't want all these safe space Satanists being accused of nefarious activities they wouldn't be caught dead near, simply because of the Spirit Cooking fiasco. Stay focused on the real criminals and avoid the guilt-by-association virus, which tends to spread like wildfire.

People's lack of nuance and discernment regarding these various threads is part of the reason why many dedicated truth-tellers resort to exposing or exploring such topics in only the most oblique ways. So, thank you for having both the guts and the acumen to really comprehend the complexities of the vast shitstorm swirling around us. And you're posts are a much needed counterbalance and antidote to the clickbait, soundbite, repost, retweet propaganda that passes for genuine conversation these days. Thank you again.

    2. Chris, might I just add that in my opinion Evil is the ultimate mercenary. The horrifically commonplace abuse, desecration and trickery that we see all around us is banal and ugly in the extreme. And yet, it too has its own more spiritual antecedents and emanations. So neat lines and discreet boundaries are often difficult to draw.

      As a writer, artist and student of the occult I agree with Peter Levenda that terms and definitions are very important in avoiding conflation and guilt-by-association. His work is required reading, and comes with my highest recommendation. I believe that precision and care with language, with concepts and terms, helps us to cultivate lucidity and general psychological health. As someone who possesses a small modicum of what I believe to be psychic ability, I've seen many others with such abilities fall into the trap of feeling rather than researching, of emotionality rather than data and context. I've fallen into the same traps at times, we all have.

      But also, as a psychic, I'd be remiss and disingenuous if I didn't offer the idea that so much of the spiritual dimension to these themes and threads exists in a hinterland, a nether-realm between fact and fiction, between this world and others. It's difficult to convey the legitimacy of this hinterland without it seeming a mere artistic or poetic conceit.

      Despite that, I’d argue that there is indeed a profound and pervasive spiritual wrongness at work in our world. There are entities and energies that follow human trafficking groups around like unseen carrion flies, for example. There are unseen forms that feed on the pain and torment of others, just as there are unseen forms that kindle the joy and love in others. Make no mistake, the darkness is ugly, awful and sinister beyond belief. I can see why some might call it ‘satanic’, for example. Even if they only sense the edges of these things. But there is light too, bright beyond all measure.

      The aspects, rhythms and ambiances of these experiences are difficult to capture without reliance on some form of evocative language. This is fact in my world, not fiction. As I said at the beginning of this comment, Evil is the ultimate mercenary. Mercenaries often use our laziness and imprecision, even our good intentions, against us – in this world and the next. I live in a world of demons and angels, Chris, a world of mercenaries and missionaries, entities with agency moving among us always. But even those terms are imprecise, mere shorthands. They are useful or resonant to me in coding and sorting some of my experiences, but these terms are not allied to any particular religiosity or interpretation, unless the entity itself is so allied.

      I’m always trying to make these shorthands subtler and more dexterous. If I’ve learned anything in my thirty-seven years it’s that the physical is not divorced in any way from the spiritual. In fact, tangible matter is but a different order of spirit. What does this mean, for me personally? It means we live within a crucible of sorts, a realm of baffling ambiguities and stunning multidimensionality.

  30. I know you were all holding your breath waiting to see what edgy, avant garde statement Marilyn Manson makes on the election. http://www.ew.com/article/2016/11/08/marilyn-manson-say10-video-trump

    He's so daring.

  32. Dear Chris,

    Thanks so much for weighing in and injecting some much needed equanimity into the fray.

    And far be it from me to release the Hounds of Tindalos again, but there's something I've just got to get off my chest that really, really bothers me.

    It's Levenda saying "I am not certain what you mean by what you find suspicious in the (Podesta/Clinton) emails, or where there is the intimation of pedophile rings, etc."

    From everyone's very recent - as in the last 48 hours - researching, there are clear pedo/pedo ring code words all over these emails. How else to interpret "$40,000 in exchange for pizza?" How much effort does it take to look up the definitions of "walnut" and "cheese pizza" in the urban dictionary? How many times do these terms have to be mentioned in these emails before we realize something's worthy of investigation, or at least not outright dismissal?

    When the mention even comes up on Tor and all of these various other onion routers on the dark web of "cooking times" for your "cheese pizza" of between 4-16 minutes meaning it's a way to choose the age of your target...

    This is an unbelievable level of shitstorm that's being revealed right underneath our noses by wikileaks and others, and it deserves to be addressed, not shoved aside, or we're no better than the BBC and UK elites "handling" Savile for decades. Perhaps they too were intimidated at the time with talk of "Salem" and "witch hunts" and the "Spanish Inquisition."

    We have a chance to be better than that.

    1. Wow. So I looked to the urban dictionary and was thoroughly disgusted. But I've been down this road of research before. Cathy O'Brien in "Trance Formation of America" a book that I still don't know what to make of, mentions Hillary as one of here abusers, at one point even commenting on Cathy's "carved" vagina, a video of which can be found on Youtube.

  33. Did everyone on Secret Sun just go crazy? You're all seriously looping Marina Abramovic into this? The sheer lack of knowledge everyone seems to have on Abramovic, modern art, experimental art, feminist art and performance art is staggering. Refer to what Levenda said about DATA: you really need to gather it before you draw conclusions. Trivium, anyone?

    1. You mean the self branding & highly commodified so called edgy but actually empty ersatz anti-human "experimental" & "feminist" art of Ms. Abramovic?

      Sure she has nothing to do with questionable atavistic currents in the greater unconscious of our times......

      Let's quote her: “Aborigines are not just the oldest race in Australia; they are the oldest race on the planet. They look like dinosaurs. They are really strange and different, and they should be treated as living treasures. Yet they are not.

      But at the same time, when you first meet them, you have to put effort into it. For one thing, to Western eyes they look terrible. Their faces are like no other faces on earth; they have big torsos (just one bad result of their encounter with Western civilisation is a high sugar diet that bloats their bodies) and sticklike legs.”

      nothing dehumanizing, narcissistic or frighteningly soulless there.....

  34. This is for Raj, Levenda, et al. Hope this contains enough nuance and discernment for ya. Of course there exists the possibility that we could throw Tracy Twyman under the bus too...I mean, who is she, right?

  35. I have been thinking about bowie in relation to this.
    Black star, the video and song, did bowie get trump elected......?!
    Sounds crazy.
    "in the villa of orman"
    sounds like "in the villa of all men"
    The video has one white male and one black male dancing in unison while a female is off to the side trying to imitate them.

    Then there is the lyric "on the day of execution, only women kneel and smile"

    And of course "something happend on the day he died", would refer to bowie.

    and there some more lyrics like

    He trod on sacred ground, he cried aloud into the crowd
    (I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangstar)

    I can't answer why (I'm a blackstar)
    Just go with me (I'm not a filmstar)
    I'm a take you home (I'm a blackstar)
    Take your passport and shoes (I'm not a popstar)
    And your sedatives, boo (I'm a blackstar)
    You're the flash in the pan (I'm not a marvelstar)
    I'm the great I am (I'm a blackstar)


    It kind of sounds like trump, how he took on the establishment, the media, everyone, destroyed them, and told the people, "im different"


    Maybe im reading too much into stuff, ha.
