19. The Problem with the Main Stream Media, Part Four: Advertising, the Internet, Spiritual & Political Awareness, the Future,
Alternative News Sources, Conclusions (27-07-2019) (sections in sky-blue are later added)
Advertising & the Media
Advertisers dictate the contents of the media
If you have read part one, two and three, it will be clear that corporations have an enormous influence on the content of the media. This influence is largely invisible, because companies cannot simply tell the government or the public: “We want to make more profit, so we want more direct control of all media, no government interference, decide what the media can and cannot publish, and to hell with the people.” That is why lobbying is so important. Politicians are also very aware of the power of the media, because they are depending on them, if they want to get re-elected. The politicians thus need the media and are also corrupted by the corporations. But some stories came out as a result of government hearings. For instance Big Pharma giant Proctor & Gamble said in a memo to the media that scenes in series or movies depicting people who are committing suicide by taking pills, must be cut.128 In the 70s, when tobacco advertising was still allowed, the CBS “Camel News Caravan” (!) told editors that any news footage will be refused if behind the filmed persons a “No Smoking” sign could be seen.129 The media comply, because their very existence is depending on the money from advertisements.
Separation between advertising and media content is fading
Robert McChesney, author of “The Problem of the Media” says: “Its job [advertising] was to sell a product or service and provide the revenues necessary to produce quality programming, over which it should have no direct control.” (In the USA there is no public television broadcasting, like in the UK or the Netherlands.) But since advertising has become the motor force in the media, the “barrier between the “church and the state” is under severe attack. The commercialization of culture is becoming so powerful that distinction between media and pure commercialism is ceasing to exist.”130 An example of this is showing a product in the content itself, which is called “product placement”. In the first James Bond movies, the producers found this “unseemly”, but in the last decade one can see product placement of cars, alcohol, watches, etc. Someone said that Bond now “has a license to sell”. This can be quite annoying for the public, because such movies look more like one great advertisement, than an interesting movie. An extreme example is a scene in the movie “La Menace”, in which Yves Montand plays the owner of a truck selling company. He answers the phone saying: “Volvo, ici Savin.” (The Volvo trucks are also filmed extensively). This is unrealistic. It is like a restaurant owner who would answer the phone saying: “Coca-Cola. Jim Spencer speaking.” Another disturbing phenomenon is “advertorials”; articles in (regional) newspapers which are in fact advertisements disguised as an article/editorial. If you miss the word “advertisement” at the top, you would read it like a news article, which is the purpose of course. In such a way corporations could, using so-called “scientific” “information”, make people believe that they need for instance, sunglasses to “protect” their eyes against UV-light.
Commercialism is a threat to democracy
Hyper-commercialism is a threat to democracy, because one cannot tell the difference anymore between independent content and content which is commercially based, be it in culture, politics, science, the media, art or education: all these areas have been heavily contaminated with advertising, sponsoring, and pushing the views of the elite. In this way, people cannot make important choices anymore based on reality, because reality has been replaced by an illusion.
Some groups and people thought that the development and rise of the internet would lead to true democracy, to the empowerment of the people, because the government would not be able to control all communication between citizens. As we have seen in this article, the existing problems in the main stream media only became even more serious after the internet came in use. Meaning, that the untruthfulness of the media became worse. It is however a fact that doing research into the truth has become easier. (But this largely depends on the views and knowledge of the researcher: because any view can be backed by any statement that can be found on the internet - this is also the reason that lately, many people think that the earth is flat – which was a project of the Cabal to confuse people make them become incredible by people in their network, because they can find “confirmation” on the internet). It is also true, in principle, that social media can bring people together, for instance in the case of organizing demonstrations. It is, however, very interesting to know how the internet came into being, who benefits from it and who weaponized the social media and mobile phones. This story is told by Yasha Levine in his book “Surveillance Valley” (2017): “The internet came out of a 1960s military project to develop an information weapon. It was born out of a need to quickly communicate, process data, and control a chaotic world. Today, the network is more than a weapon; it is also a field of battle, a place where vital military and intelligence operations take place.”131 Levine discovered that the internet was rooted in the need for the USA to fight communism world-wide in the 60s. 132. “The internet came out of an attempt to build computer systems that collect and share intelligence, watch the world in real time, and study and analyze people and political movements with the ultimate goal of predicting and preventing social upheaval.133 This reminds me of the series “Person of Interest”, in which a software genius “professor” built hardware and software for the government which is capable of accessing any digital video camera in the world, any cell phone, hack any computer, use the camera and microphone of tv-sets, etc., and calculates and processes millions of data to come up with predicted crimes planned by “terrorists”. But also illegal activities planned by ordinary people. They called this “The Machine”. According to whistleblower Corey Goode, this technology really does exist and can watch everybody’s moves and communication in real time. All data in Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter, any telecom provider etc. is stored and sent to the servers of the NSA and CIA. That is, if you use a smart phone, a GPS device (like a GPS camera), a car with a board computer or GPS, a laptop, a tablet or a desktop. “In other words, the internet was hardwired to be a surveillance tool form the beginning.” 134 So, the internet was meant for control and repression of the people, not for liberation. “In 1969 a group of students at MIT and Harvard attempted to shut down research taking place at their universities under the ARPANET umbrella. They saw this computer network as the start of a hybrid private-public system of surveillance and control – “computerized people-manipulation” they called it – and warned that it would be used to spy on Americans and wage war on progressive political movements. They understood this technology better than today. More importantly, they were right. In 1972, almost as soon as the ARPANET was rolled out on a national level, the network was used to help the CIA, the NSA, and the US Army to spy on tens of thousands of antiwar and civil rights activists. It was a big scandal at the time, and the ARPANET’s role in it was discussed at length on American television, including NBC Evening News.”135 At least, this is something positive: it was aired by the main stream media! (This was possible because it was in the 70s; nowadays, this would be very unlikely.)
In an article in De Telegraaf (24-07-2019): titled: "All-seeing eye for the police", a new system of camera control is mentioned, which is developed by the police ("Team Technisch Toezicht"). With this system all images from all security camera's, all Rijkswaterstaat camera's, all camera's from police bodycams, all camera's from NS-(railroad)stations and all camera's from helicopters and drones, are coupled, and can be seen at the same time. "Untill now, the images could only be viewed by the organization which installed the camera's", they say. So, this also exists in the Netherlands.
If you want the whole story about the role of the Pentagon, about ARPA (now DARPA), the CIA, NSA, Project Igloo White, the RAND Corporation, Project Agile, ENIAC, IBM computers used by the Nazi during WWII, SAGE, John van Neumann, PRISM, CONUS, FEDNET, COINS, NFSNET, PSINET, DEA, NGA, SAIC, Eric Schmidt, Google, TOR (The Onion Router or the “Dark Web”), Facebook, Yahoo, Jacob Appelbaum, Edward Snowden, etc., you have to read the book yourself, because we have to move on to the next section. Well, one other thing: what would be the future of this weaponized internet? Complete Orwellian control of all people? It is said that the expected solar flare (around 2024) could burn out every computer chip. So, that would be the end of all control, but also the end of the life as we know it; we would be thrown into the stone age, and have to invent new technologies based on solar and etheric energy.
Israel’s influence on the world’s media
“Numerous well-funded, organized projects by and for Israel work to flood social media with pro-Israel propaganda, while blocking facts Israel dislikes. The projects utilize Israeli soldiers, students, American teens and others, and range from infiltrating Wikipedia to influencing YouTube. Some operate out of Jewish Community Centers in the U.S.” 136 Video’s depicting Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers are likely to be deleted from YouTube channels by these groups: “People going to the channel saw a message telling them that the site had been terminated for “violating “YouTube guidelines” – implying that we were guilty of wrongdoing. We received no warning and got no explanation.” 136. (In this case, they got an answer by YouTube after five days that they did not violate any guidelines and the content was restored.) “Students work in four teams: “Content”, “Wikipedia”, “Monitoring” and “New Media”. The “Content” Team is responsible for original content in a news format, The “Monitoring” Team is responsible for monitoring efforts while reporting and removing anti-Semitic [sic] content from social networks (The program conflates criticism of Israel with antisemitism), the “New Media” Team is responsible for social media channels, the “Wikipedia” Team is responsible for writing new entries and translating them into languages that operate in the program, updating the values of current and relevant information, tracking and preventing bias in the program’s areas of activity.” 136 Critical remarks about the government of Israel and antisemitic comments are both seen as “antisemitic”, which means that Israel does not tolerate any criticism aimed at the state of Israel, and will attack any critical remarks about Israel on the internet, including news sites. In the Wikipedia Team “there was a prize for the “Best Zionist Editor” – the person who over the next four years incorporated the most “Zionist” changes in the [Wikipedia] encyclopedia. The winner would receive a trip in a hot-air balloon over Israel. 136 The prize seems appropriate (hot air in the media), but the general public is and will be influenced and indoctrinated by these actions. Although Israel occupies large Palestinian territories, violates a number of international laws and kills any Palestinian child, woman or man in a cruel and sadistic fascist genocide, many people in the world think that “Israel has the right to defend itself” or that “Palestinians occupy Israeli territory”. This is the result of endless pro-Israel “journalism”. A BBC editor said: “We wait in fear for the phone calls from the Israeli’s.” 137 When the BBC dares to air news footage or a documentary in which the words “Israel attacked” are used, instead of “Israel retaliated”, thousands of angry e-mails are to be expected from pro-Israel internet “attack” groups. “They cite, in particular, their campaign against CNN, which saw them sending up to 6.000 e-mails a day to the chief executive.” 138 Such e-mails are not always as polite as one would expect: “Robert Fisk of The Independent has been told that his mother was Adolf Eichman’s daughter, that he belongs in hell with Osama Bin laden, that he is a “hate-peddler”, a leading anti-Semite and proto-fascist Islamophile propagandist and a pedophile.” 139 Investigative journalist John Pilger was told “that he was a demonic psychopath, a Nazi and that the murder of his family was “not a bad idea.” 140.
Spiritual & Political Awareness
There is a distinct difference between spiritual and political awareness. I wondered why a lot of spiritual people nowadays are extremely naïve concerning the most important events in the world. If you were to ask them who caused 9/11, the answer will almost always be: “Muslim terrorists”. One would think that people who are spiritually aware, are also aware of what really goes on in the world. But it seems that most of them have no idea. Why is it then that many popular musicians and actors in the 60s were at the same time spiritually and politically aware? People like John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Jane Fonda and Joan Baez were. My vision is that the main stream media, during the “Golden Years of Journalism” in the 60s and 70s - although somewhat controlled -, could get the truth out about many important issues. Today, no matter how “spiritual” you are, you have to unbrainwash yourself and do serious research, otherwise you will just be a mind controlled (“spiritual”) sleepwalking zombie who believes every lie of the MSM.
The Future and the Media
The “future of the media” is hard to predict, so I called this section: “the future and the media”. So, we have to do a little speculation. One thing is certain however, and that is that the current state of the media is caused by (corrupt) government regulation and the corporate power (which is again influencing the government). Elite journalists are in bed with the elite, but they are also brainwashed and indoctrinated, just like the rest of the people. They can change. For example: when the public view went against the Vietnam war, the journalists changed their opinion also and suddenly all newspapers were against the war. But the main reason is the government. The USA is nowadays a plutocracy (or a police state), and Europe, Africa, Asia, South-America, Canada and Australia are following their orders. Only Russia, China, Venezuela, Eritrea, Iran, Cuba, and some other countries are trying to fight US imperialism. As long as this goes on, the MSM will not change. The power of the USA is waning however, and in the autumn of 2019 the USA could become bankrupt. At some point in the future, the power balance in the world will change, the people will rise, and everything will change. This is possible in the year 2024 and during the years thereafter. The new powers can simply force the MSM to publish the truth, or else all publishers, broadcasters, editors and journalists will be fired and replaced by honest people. This is not just wishful thinking: great cosmic energies, like the solar flare (expected in 2023 or 2024) and the beginning of new great cosmic cycles, will have large effects on everything on earth. The future is bright (although it can become darker for some time because of 5G).
The Future: Open Source Everything?
Former CIA agent, whistleblower and truth-activist Robert David Steele proposes a system of complete (media) openness in his book “Open Source Everything”. What Robert David Steele is promoting is nothing less than total openness, empowering the people, bury the rule of secrecy, real democratic participation by the citizens in all important decisions, and to make public all secret documents. In one word: “Panarchy”. In the ideal state of panarchy, every citizen is fully actualized, deeply steeped in integrity and intelligence, and able to participate creatively in the constant social reproduction of their world.” 141 Robert David Steele is not just some ex-CIA spook who saw the light; he studied Plato, Buckminster Fuller, Teilhard de Chardin, Arthur Koestler, and is one of the deep-insider informers of Benjamin Fulford. What does this all mean concerning the main stream media? First, he advised Donald Trump to “eject the press corps” and create a “Presidential Media & Open Source Intelligence Center” in the White House from which the president can provide factual information to the public about everything. This includes a two-way vehicle for communicating to every citizen and for receiving from all citizens tweets, emails, images, and other materials processed into a presidential dashboard that allows the President and “surrogages” to “drill down” by issue, demographic, even budget line item.”142 Second, the media are to be unified with the other seven communities: Academics, Civil Society, Commercial, Government, Law Enforcement, Military and Non-Government/Non-Profit. 143 “This new meme unifies the knowledge and grassroots experience of the eight communities of intelligence, so the human collective becomes the “one body, one mind” implied by the term “noosphere” - a psychic collectivity.144
Communicating without government/NSA control
In the meantime, we the people, have to find a way to communicate without being watched every second by the NSA via the internet and smart phones. There is a new program called “Activity Pub” (downloadable at www.joinmastodon.org), which should give a system of person-to-person and person/group-to-group/person communication outside the channels of Google, Facebook, YouTube, (or whatever provider that is sending all their data to the NSA servers). After reading “Surveillance Valley”, I have to say that this does not sound very credible. I tried Activity Pub, by the way, but I was repelled by the mundane remarks which were posted, - given the opportunity of an important integral independent medium - , like: “I really liked the chocolate cake she baked and tonight I am going to have fun in the bowling center and drink a lot of beer.”
It is not a good idea by the way, to encrypt your e-mails or use the TOR (“dark web”) software, because this can be hacked and also you are making yourself suspect. TOR has been hacked by the FBI (Levine: "Surveillance Valley, p. 261).
There is also the "MeWe" website, which would be outside the control of the NSA and the CIA: https://mewe.com/. I made an account on August 4, 2019.
Alternative sources of Information
The following list is my choice of non-commercial websites which are giving daily or weekly news, background news, weekly deep insiders news, articles by independent journalists, and so on.
De Andere Krant
De Andere Krant is a unique Dutch physical newspaper. Each edition is dedicated to one topic, the latest one (summer 2019) being 9/11. It is spread by volunteers around the country. One can order papers at: www.deanderekrant.nl.
There is only one end conclusion possible: everything is turned upside down, like in Orwell’s “1984”. (Last found example of this: “Israeli settler groups are turning the Israel-Palestine narrative on its head, accusing Palestinians of trying to illegally steal land in the West Bank’s Area C.” 145)
In this interview by (main stream media) news site RT, Prof. Dr. Martin Pall says that "the media have been corrupted by the industry", as an answer to the question by RT why there is so little coverage of the dangers of Wi-Fi radiation and 5G (see 9.40 min. in the interview).

18. The Problem with the Main Stream Media, Part Three: Fake News, Blogs, Television, Public Opinion, Truth & the Media and the History of the Press (16-07-2019) (Sections in blue are new or updated topics)
1. Fake News
Dave Lindorff: “Historians say the term “fake news” dates from the 19th century era of “yellow journalism” [tabloids], but the term really took off in 2016, during Donald Trump’s run for the presidency. It described several different things, from fact-free, pro-Trump online media to sensationalistic and largely untrue stories whose only goal was eyeballs and dollars. During the primary season, Trump began labeling all mainstream media stories as “fake news”. “The New York Times, the Washington Post, the network [tv] news programs and even National Public Radio, have all responded to being called liars and “fake news” fabricators by promoting themselves as “the reality-bases community.” 92. According to Frank Ho the term “Fake News” was used by the elite in relation to 9/11, when the term “conspiracy theorist” was contaminated and a new term had to be introduced to debunk the researchers who began to publish books about the real story about 9/11. 93. (“Fake News” is not a new expression or a new word. It just consists of two words, like “rotten apple”. False news has been around probably since the existence of the press.)
The war on serious independent internet sources
Trump was right of course, to call journalists of CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post “Fake News”, because they are. But the elite turned it around and started to attack independent alternative news sources and called these ”fake news”. During this war, a lot of serious websites have been destroyed. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Google are censoring certain topics, and even WordPress has taken down independent news websites made in WordPress: investigative reporter Jon Rappoport’s blog has been taken down by WordPress.94. Facebook erased 800 independent news pages in 2018.95 Wikipedia pages had been censored before that. Steven Greer said once that, while correcting text about him on Wikiepdia, that at the same time it was changed back to the lies again, within seconds! So, Wikipedia pages cannot be trusted at all, whatever the subject. Google made changes, “to make it harder for users to access what it called “low-quality information” such as “conspiracy theories” and “fake news”. Three months later, World Socialist Web reported that the visits to their website dropped with 70%”. Also, Global Research, Counterpunch, Consortium News, WikiLeaks, Alternet and Truthout experienced sharp drops in ranking, and even Amnesty International. 96. The Avaaz campaign group has recently showed its true colors. Avaaz bills itself as a social action group bringing “people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere”. On 19-05-2019 they mailed their subscribers with “The urgent threat of disinformation and how we can protect ourselves.” In this mail they also claimed that “Russia leads the pack – their huge troll farms employ legions of people to set millions of fake accounts to spread disinformation.” This bullshit about Russian interference is what the Empire also tried to do to get rid of Trump. Avaaz claims it accepts no money from governments or corporations, but it is tied to other social action groups Res Publica and Moveon.org (which has been partly funded by left-wing Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros) – and its co-founders, Ricken Patel an Tom Perriello, have a history of supporting a US imperialist agenda. Ricken has previously worked for the US State Department and Amnesty International, while Periello is a former US congressman who voted in favor of continuing the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq.” 97. Even e-mail providers are attacking real news. After I sent an e-mail to a friend of mine in the USA with the “Hillary Clinton Body Count List” (a list with all the people she had killed), the next morning I received an e-mail from his provider Verizon (comparable to KPN in the Netherlands) which said: “Your e-mail address has been placed on our black list and you can no longer e-mail with this person.” On July 15, 2019 the Consortium News website was taken down by malware, after streaming a program defending Julian Assange. Every article published since 2011 got the 404 Not Found notice. In August 2019, the facebookpage of Desirée Rover was terminated. She wrote about the dangers of vaccines. She is now on MeWe.
A more aggressive way to destroy real news by the elite is to take the lead or start lying themselves: “Thus, for every event that needs to be controlled as to public perception and opinion, where choking of readership isn’t enough and killing a journalist isn’t possible, another solution is chosen. If one alternative theory, perhaps one that fits better than the “fake” theory chosen by the controlled media, poses a threat, simply “drown it. To do this, platforms are created, mysteriously funded alternative media sites that the main stream media mentions continually, that Google pushes traffic to, whose wild and obscene videos are protected by YouTube and whose homicidal pronouncements are ignored by authorities.
Any time a real source, a real whistleblower with real information on government complicity in terrorism or large scale corruption, comes forward, and they are not jailed or forced to flee the country, their revelations are overwhelmed with spin, fluff, smears, and an endless stream of conspiracy theories carefully engineered. ”98.
Fake News Example: 9/11
A famous example is the announcement on BBC and CNN that WTC 7 Tower “has either collapsed or is collapsing”, while behind the newsreader we can see building 7 still standing. So, the elite had their “news” story ready long before the actual collapse of the building, but the media made a little mistake by airing it too early. 99
Top media manipulator and Blogs specialist Ryan Holiday is telling his story in his book “Trust Me, I’m Lying, Confessions of a Media Manipulator” (2013). If you are not in the business of media manipulation, these stories sound at the same time unbelievable, outrageous, incredible and hilarious. He was able to create a rumor, based on an absolute lie, about a company on local blogs, which he created on a false name only for that purpose, than write local newspapers about this “news” on this blog (about his own lie), and as a result these newspapers copied this lie on a blog with a larger public and sometimes it would be printed in national newspapers like the New York Times. So, the idea is created that the topic already exists. If this rumor was negative enough, the attacked company could lose millions. Politicians also know the secrets of manipulation: “Vice president Dick Cheney leaked bogus information to an attention hungry reporter for the New York Times, and then mentioned his own leak on “Meet the Press” to help convince us to invade Iraq.” (Holiday, p.221) When we look at what he said about journalists and the news sites on the internet, his experience was that 89% of all journalists use blogs as a source of news or facts, 50% use Twitter and 66% use Facebook (Holiday, p.20). No wonder that the “news” cannot be trusted. He says bloggers are dishonest, vicious, irresponsible and inaccurate because their paycheck depends on it (Holiday, p.47). “A writer needs to rack up roughly one hundred thousand views to make even one thousand dollars – a tough fight when you’re jostling for share of voice against the thousand-plus writers who there each month.” (Holiday, p.43) The most powerful blog is a blog in which the writer is angry. “Blogs are important because they are read the most by the elite.” Two very important other factors are speed (“speed is everything”), and traffic (“traffic is money”). Holiday sometimes hired writers and his only criterium was speed: “We need people that can get the story out in minutes and can compose the bigger opinion pieces in a couple of hours, not a couple of days.” (Holiday, p.42) Holiday even created a non-existing Democratic politician who was running for president during the elections!
3. Television: “News” broadcasted by networks
Edward Epstein, who did a scientific study during three months of the television networks, was told by president of CBS Richard Salant: “Our reporters do not cover stories from their point of view. They are presenting them from nobody’s point of view.” (Hence the title of his book: “News from Nowhere”.) News for television is produced in a group, it is a group effort. A group of journalists and camera men work for a network and the network is under control of supervision groups in New York or Washington. (Even the New York Times admitted in June 2019 that it sends stories to the US government for approval before publication.100) Only those tv-journalists are hired who have no “bias”, no “commitment”, no “political views”, and are not “dogmatic”. Most journalists that Epstein met were totally non-political and agnostic, they did not have any religion. They only have to report “events”, any personal views or critical standpoints are forbidden. Once a story is done, it is sent to the headquarters of NBC (owned by General Electric), CBS (owned by Viacom) or ABC (owned by Disney) in New York, where the stories are edited, sometimes re-edited or completely rewritten, processed, and then sent back to the networks to be aired. In this way there is total control over the contents from above, by the elite. Malcom X: “The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” Where speed is the most important factor for blogs and news sites, the number of viewers is the most important item for television. “There is no economic incentive to spend money on searches for original information, or intelligence gathering, since it is not presumed that scoops, exclusive or original reporting significantly increase the audience, and hence the revenue, for network news.” 101.
“Television is not expected to reproduce newspaper stories on film; it is a totally different medium.” a young producer explained. 102 A story must have drama: “It should have structure and conflict, problem and denouement, rising action and falling action, a beginning, a middle and an end.” 103. The highest power of television journalism is not in the transmission of information but in the transmission of experience… joy, sorrow, shock, fear, these are the stuff of the news.” 104.
False video’s, false images and lies
In August 1992, millions of people were shocked to see photographs of a supposed Bosnian “deathcamp”. But the story was a lie. The ITN crew had filmed from inside a fenced-in area, so the Bosnian refugees looked like prisoners seen through the fence. By also using a very skinny man in the center of the frame, it looked like a Nazi concentration camp. 105
In a 2011 BBC coverage of the war in Libya, “Libyans are celebrating liberation on the Green Square”. In reality people are seen waving Indian flags. The images are not the Green Square, and the people are in fact Indians from India. The truth is that Libyan civilians are being terrorized by the NATO sponsored rebels. Death and destruction are replaced by images of celebration and liberation. 106 When the MSM published the so-called “terrorist attack” on Brussels on 22-03-2016, they used a fake video footage, which was in reality a video of a terror attack at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on 24-01-2011, posted on YouTube in November 2013. 107 What we rarely see on tv are demonstrations against governments or presidents. To know whether people are demonstrating in large numbers against the government in Spain, Greece, Germany or any other “democratic” country, we have to search the alternative news sites on the internet.
(The NATO war on Libya and Ghadaffi is a story in itself, but there is not enough space to comment on this. However, it is imported to know that the main reason for the war on Gadhafi and Lybia was that he planned to create an independent African money system, independent from the US dollar, backed on gold, for the whole of the African continent. This could not be allowed by Wallstreet, the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, and the oil and war industry of course. (The murder of Gadhafi was ordered by Tony Blair, because Gadhafi had dirty secrets about him of fraudulent business.) Saddam Hussein was also attacked by the USA because he started selling oil for Euro's instead of dollars.)
“The public is trained to believe that the BBC is the world’s “best” news broadcaster; a relentlessly, fair, honest and impartial provider of facts about national and international events.” “In reality the BBC habitually protects power, the monarchy, and an unjust and inequitable class system.” 108
BBC editors are embedded in the corporate and political power structure. An example is the attack on Jeremy Corbyn, in a BBC Panorama Special broadcasted in July 2019, titled: “Is Labour Anti-Semitic?” “The partisan tone was set from the opening shot: A young woman whose name was not revealed tearfully claimed to have been abused with antisemitic taunts at a Labour Party conference.” On further investigation, this woman appeared to be Ella Rose, a senior official in the Jewish Labour Movement and a former worker at the Israeli embassy in London. Hey, does this not ring a bell? Exactly: the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador who tearfully said on live television that “babies were left on the floor to die in a Kuwaiti hospital”. (See the section about Iraq in Part Two.) In reality, anti-simitic remarks made by Labour members were minimal, - and even went down after Corby became the leader - , whereas the Conservative Party’s racial prejudices were far more substantial, but this was omitted in the Panorama video.109 This BBC broadcast was clearly a partisan attack at Corbyn, just as the extremely partisan articles in the first half of the 19th century in the USA were, where each newspaper owner could use his own paper to vent his support for a certain president. (See the section: “The History of the Press in the USA”.) Laura Kuenssberg, Political Editor of the BBC once said: “I would die in a ditch for the impartiality of the BBC.” After 35.000 members of the public had signed a petition, calling for her resignation because of bias, she replied: “I’m not going into that.” 110. My personal experience concerning the public’s trust in the BBC: during a conversation about the media with a friend of mine I said that the BBC “cannot be trusted”. His answer was that no further discussion was then possible. The next day I received an e-mail in which he said that he could not longer see me. He could not live with the idea that the BBC could not be the trusted, fact-bringing media authority. This is in line with the conclusion made by Charney which says that people have to believe in the freedom and accuracy of the press, otherwise they could become crazy (see the section “The illusion of the free press” in Part One). The Dutch “NOS Journaal” has also been accused of lying. On September 8, 2014 the NOS reported that Vladimir Putin “as good as ignored” the BBC journalist John Sweeney. In the short video footage one could see Putin walk away. In reality Putin turned to the journalist and they had a conversation that lasted for two whole minutes. This is one of the many lies which are told in the MSM about Putin, in order to make him look like “the evil communist enemy”, in the continued attempt by the Cabal to trigger World War III.

4. The Public
Public trust in the media
In 2014, Edelman did a world-wide survey about trust in the media. The Dutch people trusted the social media the least of all people, but at the same time they trusted the main stream media the most. 111 In another survey the Germans trusted the main stream media even more than the Dutch. On the top of the list of countries who did NOT trust the main stream media were Estonia, Hungary, Greece and Croatia. A poll done in the USA showed that in 2016 32% of the public had confidence in the MSM, against 72% in 1976. 112. “Like citizens of other countries, citizens of the USA want to believe that their leaders are trustworthy.” So, they have more trust in media which support their leader, than media who are critical about their leader. For instance: “A Republican who supports Donald Trump has a very low view of the media, which have scorned him, but a high degree of trust in the president.” 113 In Germany only 5% of people under thirty watch ARD, according to Ulfkotte. 114.
So, we can say that the overall trust in the MSM is going down, except for the (older) Dutch and German people. The Dutch newspaper NRC (2014) mentioned a survey by the Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau (SCP) which stated that older people and people with a lower education watch television, while younger people and highly educated people watch the internet. 115 We saw in different sections above that the internet is no solution: many people follow the MSM on the internet news websites, like the online New York Times. Also, the main stream media have such a strong image of “trustworthiness”, and such a large distribution, that the internet is just not an alternative for the larger public. This also means of course that the main stream media have enormous potential, if and when they are used for the benefit of the public (and are non-commercial). More about this under the section “The Future and the media”. See The Edelman Trust Barometer for the latest overall results.
"Trust in the Media" results: see page 42 of THIS LINK.
A Chinese saying is: “A wise man takes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.” So, what is public opinion worth? What to think of many polls in the USA which said that people find torture “an acceptable way to treat those people”? Assange, 96. 116 And what to think of people who thought that Obama was a humane, peace loving president, while in reality he killed more civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other countries, than George Bush, and even killed American citizens abroad with drones. See the complete list of Obama’s lies, crimes, misdeeds and scandals: here 117. Everything he did was illegal, because, being born in Kenya and not in the USA, (which is required for a president), he was an illegal president. Obama, whose real name is Barry Soetoro, was already recruited and trained by the CIA and DARPA when he was 25 years old. After his “presidency” he tried to get political asylum in Kenya because he was afraid to be indicted for crimes against humanity, but they did not want him. (This was not so strange, since a lot of criminal politicians have become afraid after the execution of George Bush Sr.)
Herbert Marcuse had this to say about public opinion: “In Plato, rationality is confined to small number of philosophy-kings, in [John Stuart] Mill, every rational human being participates in the discussion and decision – but only a rational being. Where society has entered the phase of total administration and indoctrination, this would be a small number indeed, and not necessarily that of the elected representatives of the people. The problem is not that of an educational dictatorship, but that of breaking the tyranny of public opinion and its makers in the closed society.” 118. In other words, even at the time of his writing (1965) the people (in the USA) were so brainwashed and indoctrinated that there were hardly any “rational” people left, needed to make important decisions. Since about the year 2000 however, more and more people have awakened, and more and more demonstrations are held throughout the world, as the Cabal is losing power steadily and rapidly. It could even be that the main stream media are the last bastion to be conquered.
5. Truth and the Media
How is it even possible to know what is really going on in the world, including on the deepest decision-making levels and concerning the deeper meaning of what is seen on the surface, when the following is happening:
A. The elite media owners think that they have the “right” ideological world view and the unique right to use “their” media to vent their ideas;
B. Editors of newspapers and broadcasters who are toeing the party line for their elite bosses.
C. Elite main stream media journalists who have internalized the values of the elite and are happy to belong to the higher society and to be the mouthpiece of the elite.
These problems have become worse and worse since the 80s and the introduction of the internet has only made the problem bigger, not lesser. The main stream media are still seen as the most trusted news bringers by the public and the internet has become the “alternative media”, which are not to be trusted. Only a small number of people are doing investigative research, which has become more difficult because of the resistance of the brainwashed public and the fiercer attacks by the MSM/elite. So, it is impossible to get to know the truth about what is going on in the world using the MSM. But it is possible to do research and find the truth, as many independent investigative reporters have proven. You only have to avoid the main stream media, read a lot of books, read the websites of the independent reporters and news organizations, not watch television, not read national newspapers, and not trust certain sources, like Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia, Twitter etc. But it is at the same time also important to unbrainwash yourself from the lies given by the media, schools and universities in the past, and replace these with the real knowledge of the real history of the world. (Since this cannot be a tutorial of how to do all this in detail, you have to find this out by yourself.)
A closing remark could be that “the truth” has never been a criterium in the main stream media. Nick Davies writes in “Flat Earth News”: “….Reuters was not concerned with the truth. The agency would try to provide an accurate account of what was being said and might sometimes add an accurate account of an opposing point of view: “But it isn’t an agency’s job to start choosing between these voices and saying who is telling the truth.” 119 Even according to the "Fairness Doctrine" (1949-1987), - which was in operation during the "Golden Years" of journalism -, and tried to guarantee that broadcasters of radio and television stations gave enough noncommercial free time to public interest subjects and present fair and balanced coverage of controversial subjects, "truth was no defense". (Epstein, 68) The idea that the MSM can only give two opposing viewpoints and cannot simply state what is true, seems so normal nowadays that people seem to forget what the real task of the media is: to be a watchdog and report any anti-democratic activities by the powers that be, which can only be carried out when the media organizations, editors and journalists are completely independent from commercial and political interests. As Hannah Arend has said: the truth has become an opinion. And the people are left in the dark because they do not know which viewpoint is the right one (in case one is true; often both viewpoint s are wrong).
6. The History of the Press in the USA
“The mercenaries and parasites of the Press, who prostitute its more than royal power, and dishonor a noble profession, will find it easy to mock at things too wonderful for them to understand; for to them the price of a paragraph is more than the value of sincerity.” 120 This sounds like it was written recently by an independent reporter, but the above sentence was actually written in the 1870s by Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. Has the press always been so partisan and has nothing changed since 1870? No, a lot has changed, but it seems that history is repeating itself now. The concept of objective, neutral journalism did not emerge until the 20th century. In the 19th century newspaper owners used their papers to support their favorite president and did not hesitate to attack any other view by any other newspaper. So, Blavatsky’s remark concerned this period, in which “objective” journalism simply did not yet exist. “President Lincoln faced press criticism – from some Northern newspapers – that would make the treatment of Lyndon Johnson during Vietnam, Richard Nixon during Watergate, or Bill Clinton during his impeachment seem like a day at the beach.” 121 Throughout this era, socialists, feminists, abolitionists, trade unionists, and radicals came to regard the mainstream commercial press as the mouthpiece of their enemies and established their own media to advance their interests. 122 In 1923 the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) was formed which issued professional codes of ethics for journalists to follow. However, journalistic autonomy existed purely at the whim of publishers, who still held all the legal and economic power. “During the 30s, prominent journalists such as George Seldes and Heywood Broun struggled for a vision of professional journalism that was ruthlessly independent of corporate and commercial influence. Seldes advocated a journalism that would aggressively ferret out the truth on behalf of democratic values and the dispossessed.” 123 Some members of the Newspaper Guild even wanted the journalists to own the newspapers. But this never happened. It took decades for the professional system to be adopted by the major journalistic media. For instance, the Chicago Tribune’s owner Robert McCormick kept using the Chicago Tribune to advocate his own far-right views. (According to Sherman Skolnick the Chicago Tribune, - whose stockholders were members of the Rockefeller family and the British Royal Family -, covered up the July 9, 1999 assassination attempt on Al Gore as his plane, Air Force Two, flew over Chicago.”) 124 However, it was a myth that journalism could actually be neutral or objective. Decision making is an inescapable part of the journalistic process, and some values have to be promoted when deciding why one story rates front-page treatment while another is ignored.”125 From then on three biases have been built into the professional codes that journalists follow and that have decidedly political and ideological implications, which remain in place to this day. The first bias is that professional journalism regards anything said by official sources like presidents or prominent public figures or PR spokespersons, as the basis for legitimate news. The second bias is the avoidance of contextualization. Contextualization was very strong during the partisan journalistic era: it attempted to place every important issue in a larger political ideology, to make sense of it. Today, it looks like newspaper articles are trying to confuse the public, rather than to bring understanding. The third bias is that professional journalism smuggles in values conducive to commercial aims of owners and advertisers and to political aims of big business. 126. The best era for professional journalism spanned from the 1950s to the 1970s when US journalism had relative autonomy to pursue their stories and considerable resources to hone their craft. 127 Although the “golden age of journalism” must not be overrated (because journalists still kept quiet about the activities of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful individuals), some great journalists have done brilliant work for the main stream outlets, whose contributions to building a more democratic society have been immeasurable. During the 80s relaxation of media ownership led to wave after wave of media deal making and mega-corporations. For these big corporations media autonomy became nonsensical. The only goals were making more profit, becoming larger and holding the journalists on a leash.
The above mentioned biases helped stimulate the birth and rapid rise of the public relations industry. Britain has now  more PR people (47.800) than journalists (45.000). More and more newspaper stories are based on PR-articles rather than on research. Since articles written by PR people are per definition commercially and/or politically biased, this is certainly not a good development. With the introduction of the internet, articles for the major newspapers on line websites, have to be written so quick, that any research which was maybe done before, went out of the window because lack of time: in 5 minutes time, one cannot do a lot of research. An investigation done by the Cardiff University showed that at least 80% of all newspapers articles contained second-hand, mostly unchecked material. In other words: in at least 80% of all articles, the facts are not checked (Nick Davies, p. 96).

Killed and Jailed Journalists
Obviously, the ruling elite needs to control its narrative and is not happy with journalists who publish secrets which could awaken the public. The people could then hit the streets and demand the truth. When threats, harassment and lawsuits by the government do not work, the next step is to kill the journalists. This is an extreme measure of course, which will also serve as an example for other journalists. However, there are various other reasons behind the murder or killing of journalists. One reason is angry people in countries which are destroyed by the elite. Reporter Andre Vltchek was almost killed by angry people in Egypt who thought that he was an elite journalist, representing western powers. He was told by an Egyptian revolutionary: “Keep your cameras hidden. There are snipers all around. They killed our friend – a reporter – right in front of the Palace.”48 If George Bush Jr. or Sr. would have walked through Falluja, Iraq, for instance, without armed guards, he would have been hanged on the village square. George H.W. Bush was well aware of this risk when he said to a reporter: “Sarah, If the American people ever find out what we have done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us.”49 A third reason is that in lawless countries like Afghanistan, journalists are considered fair game, as reporter Udo Ulfkotte experienced: “…that in Afghan war zones (long before the first soldiers arrived) one was considered fair game as “nonbelieving foreigner, on which the Mujahedin fired at will. For instance, the American journalist Daniel Pearl has never understood that I did not trust war parties in war zones. Muslims cut off his head while fully conscious….Also the Swedish journalist Nils Horner did never protect himself. He was always unarmed and did not want armed guards. He was shot dead by supporters of Islam ideologies. Also German photographer Anja Niedringhaus, …was shot dead as so many others in Afghanistan.”50 A fourth reason for killing journalists is when secret operating groups do not want their cover blown, in case a reporter would suddenly show up in their secret camp or hiding place. For instance IS, (or ISIS, Daesh or al Qaeda, or the “White Helmets” in Syria) would probably kill any journalist in such a situation, in order to prevent that the reporter would gather evidence that they are paid by the US Army, Saudi Arabia, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, or any other country who supported the terrorist groups in Syria (according to Putin, 40 countries economically supported international mercenary groups who were fighting Assad, including G20 member.51 Accidents also happen. An example is famous Magnum photographer Robert Capa, who walked on a landmine in South-east Asia. About journalists who were killed by the government: because “democratic” governments generally do not want to be viewed as criminals, these murders are often masked as “suicides”, “heart failure”, “cancer”, etc. Even a new word has been created for these killings: “suicided”. Sherman Skolnick: “A reporter of a Philadelphia newspaper, attending the trial every day, was likewise murdered [was shot dead in his home]. He apparently began asking forbidden questions about the Yakuza links.52 Journalist Kashoggi was killed and dismembered when visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 02-10-2018.53 In Bagdad a Reuters journalist was shot dead in 2007 from an US helicopter, as was seen in a video that was shot from the very helicopter, released by WikiLeaks under the heading “Collateral Murder”.54
In 2018 66 journalists were killed worldwide for various reasons, according to “Reporters Sans Frontiere”, a French journalist organization. 2012 and 2007 showed a record of 88 killed journalists. In 2019, to this day (10-06-2019), 19 journalists were killed.55 The number of journalists who were jailed for doing their work in 2018 was 251, “near a record high” according to “The Globe and Mail”, a Canadian news site.56
What is propaganda? Robert David Steele: “Propaganda, put most simply, is the development of manipulated (i.e. not truthful) information and the delivery of that information to an audience in such a way as to impress upon them views and beliefs that are not rooted in fact or deliberate dialog.”57 Since John Charney has scientifically demonstrated that the press cannot be truthful per definition, we could say that all main stream media “news” is “propaganda”. Most people will think of “Nazi propaganda”, when the word “propaganda” is used, but it was actually used in England before WWI, to create hate against the Germans. Goebbels said in a speech after WWI about England: “ They [England] spoke of children’s hands chopped off, eyes poked out, women raped, and old people tortured. Long years of anti-German propaganda campaign persuaded the whole world that Germany was a nation of barbarians, uncivilized and inhumane, and that it was the moral and cultural obligation of the rest of the earth to destroy Germany and to break its power.”58
(Also was said in the English propaganda, that Germans had cut off the breasts of Belgian women, which was used by author Peter Cheyney in his "Dark" series of novels ("Dark Duet - 1942, "The Dark Street" - 1944, etc.), in the form of the figure Ernest Guelvada (who was a Belgian working for the English Secret Service during the Second World War), whose hatred for the Nazi's was based on "the cutting off of the breasts of his girl friend in Belgium by the Germans" - so this was transferred tot WWII. These books, which are about the secret war against Nazi's in England during WWII, were very popular among English soldiers wo were fighting at the front. )
Also the Americans used it to fool the public that a World War [One] was necessary: “The population was extremely pacifistic and saw no reason to become involved in a European war. The Wilson administration was actually committed to war and had to do something about it. They established a government propaganda commission, called the “Creel Commission”, which succeeded, within six months, in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical, war-mongering population which wanted to destroy everything German, tear the German limb from limb, go to war and save the world.”59 This sounds all awfully familiar. It reminds us of what Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. said about Iraq, and the Kuwaiti girl who said on the news that “Iraqi soldiers had thrown babies on the floor in a hospital in Kuwait and left to die.” This was a powerful, emotional propaganda lie, more so because it was on television. Millions of people all over the world believed it, and the American people were then brainwashed enough to support the war against Iraq. Andre Vltchek was told by international criminal lawyer Christopher Black: “Wars cannot be conducted without propaganda, and as the wars are themselves are total wars – that it, wars targeting civilians as well as military forces – so the propaganda techniques used are total, using every aspect of communication and penetrating all levels of society.”60 The Thatcher regime almost paralleled the CIA spending for propaganda: “When Margaret Thatcher took office in 1979, the British government was spending 27 million pounds on the Central Office of Information, which runs its PR departments. In less than ten years, that figure rose more than 500% to 150 million pounds in 1988.”61 This means that the people are paying for their own brainwashing and indoctrination. When a war is well on the way or nearing its end, the people become more rational again: “As a result [of 9/11], almost no one was prepared to say no to an immediate war – 90% of the US public supported attacking Afghanistan. In contrast, by March 2011, 64% of Americans said the Afghan was “not worth fighting for”.62
The Ten Commandments of War
The content of Arthur Ponsonby’s book “Falsehood in War-time, Containing an Assortment of Lies Circulated Throughout the Nations During the Great War” (1928) 63 can be summed up as follows:
1. We do not want war.
2. The opposite party alone is guilty of war.
3. The enemy is the face of the devil.
4. We defend a noble cause, not our own interests.
5. The enemy systematically commits cruelties, our mishaps are involuntary.
6. The enemy uses forbidden weapons.
7. We suffer small losses, those of the enemy are enormous.
8. Artists and intellectuals back our case.
9. Our cause is sacred.
10. All who do doubt our propaganda, are traitors.
So, not much is changed since 1928, when we recall George Bush saying: “All who are not for us, are against us”, and all the other propaganda commandments that were made to make the public enthusiastic about going to war with Iraq and Afghanistan. The above commandments remind us of the four ministries of George Orwell’s book “1984”: “The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.” The Party slogans are: “War is Peace”, “Freedom is Slavery” and “Ignorance is Strength”. 64 The whole situation is more or less turned upside down: people who were led to believe by propaganda that they are living in a democracy support a war mongering criminal government which tells them that they want to bring “democracy” to “dictatorships”. Andre Vltchek: “Some would ask: How could crime be packaged as altruism? It can, of course, in those societies that perceive “reality” after getting stoned on huge daily doses of advertisements and propaganda, two sides of the same coin, two synonyms of lie and deception. In order for the brutal Empire to pose and be considered as the savior of the world, first the analytical thinking of people has to be damaged, their ability to think has to be sharply reduced.”65 Above all, the public has to be kept in fear; this is done by propaganda and “terrorist attacks” which are actually organized and carried out by the government’s secret agencies. “As a result, “terrorism” is always something the enemy does.”66
The World turned upside down by the media since 1979
When we look at an article published in “De Volkskrant” in July 1979, 67 the objectivity and honesty is almost shocking, compared to the hateful smearing campaigns by the US backing media of today. The article is titled: “Somoza’s War with Israeli Weapons” [!]. A few sentences will suffice: “It is just completely amazing that we have to determine that without the enormous weapon deliveries by Israel, Somoza and his mercenaries would long have been chased away. When at the end of last year, the liberation front almost won the dispute, Israel sent airplanes with the most advanced weapons with great speed, which turned the chances towards Somoza at the cost of the lives of thousands of people. While the IMF in other cases used strict conditions, like the freezing of salaries and the cutting off of collective facilities, it acted in Nicaragua as an instrument of the White House and the Pentagon. As the situation is now, it would be no surprise if in a short time, under a democratic constitution, in South American Tribunals not only their own tyrants and the CIA, but also Israel will have to stand trial.” The view of newspaper/editor is clear: US imperialism, the CIA, Israel, the Somoza-dictatorship and the IMF are wrong, dictatorial, inhuman, cruel and despicable. When we compare this with an article by Hans van Zon in “De Gelderlander” published in 2019 about Maduro and Venezuela 68, we can see that the view of the journalist is against the democratic chosen president Maduro: the Secretary of State and the former chairman of parliament are accused of “ruling” a drugs gang, the IMF says that “what happens in Venezuela is one of the greatest human tragedies without war violence”, “on top of the monkey rock [!] sit the “Boligarchs”, “the image cuts through the soul, four children stand by a coffin”, and: “the socialist dictatorship [!] of Nicolas Maduro crushes their existence”. The USA has failed, in plain view of the whole world, to commit a coup to try to steal Venezuela’s oil by trying to place the US marionet Juan Guaido in power and overthrow Maduro. De Gelderlander journalist is totally backing the imperialism of the USA and the IMF. So, this is one example of the subtitle “The enemy of the state is the enemy of the press.” In reality, Maduro is doing the same thing as the Sandinist government in Nicaragua: trying to rebuild the country into a true democracy and fighting the American imperialism and imperialistic influences of the IMF, and letting the people benefit from the oil sales. An article as the above from 1979 would be absolutely impossible today. The newspaper would receive thousands of e-mails per day from Israel supporters all over the world who would demand the resignation of the journalist (even as he said in his article that he provided shelter for Jews during WWII). But far more likely, the journalist would not work for De Volkskrant at all, because he would be an impermissible threat to the elite, including the USA, Israel, the CIA, the Federal Reserve, the IMF, the World Bank, and the military industrial complex.
A few of the biggest media lies of the recent past are:
1. “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.”
2. “9/11 is organized by Osama bin Laden and executed by Muslim
3. “MH17 is shot down by Russia using a surface-to-air missile.”
4. “Saddam Hussein is caught, convicted and hanged.”
5. “Princess Diana is killed in a car accident.”
In all these cases media outlets copied PR stories who were placed there by the government (or told on tv), and without any research or criticism were printed in the newspapers or broadcasted on tv. This is not about individual journalists who were "lying" or “biased”: a journalist could get in big trouble for doing this. For television, journalists are heavily screened on political views, “leftish” ideas, or any outspoken ideologies: “if any trace of bias would be found”, they will not be hired. Also, when someone would be “committed”, a “true believer”, “dogmatic” or an “advocate”, CBS would not hire such a person.69 At the same time, the rule is that government spokespeople can be trusted, so there is no need to check the facts. Whatever the president [of the USA] says, is automatically national news: “we are in the business of supplying national news and whatever the president says or does is by definition national news”, one NBC assignment editor explained”70 Because of several facts and changes in the media, especially since the 80s, - and getting worse since the internet - , such as economic pressure, budget cuts at newspapers, governments threats, control over all corporate owned media, and increasing CIA influence on the media, there is no time for fact checking, research or critical questions, and journalists who seem to try this, will find themselves without a job in no time. So, to sum up what kinds of lies we can see: 1. lies at the source, 2. lies which are copied from the wire or from speeches by politicians on tv without checking, 3. self-censoring by journalists, 4. consciously not reporting events, because the government would not approve, 5. silence about certain topics, because this is ordered from above, 6. absolute silence about certain topics, because of complete ignorance by the
media, and 7. biased journalists, mainly because of indoctrination and brainwashing. (Lie Nr. 4 (Saddam Hussein) will be discussed in the section “A case of media complicity in waging wars: Iraq”. Lie Nr. 3 (MH17) will not be discussed: it is too complicated for this article. Lie Nr. 5 (Diana), see article No. 12 on this blog of 02-10-2017.)
A few topics that the main stream media are completely silent about are: chemtrails, the hazards of high-frequency radiation (e.g. cell phone towers) and 5G, the dangers of vaccination, UFO’s and extraterrestrials, the secret space program, capital crimes and treason by (former) heads of state (Bill and Hillary Clinton and George H.W. Bush to name a few 92), and of course absolute silence about the role of the main stream media itself - and at the same time blaming the social media for “fake news”. People are becoming more and more aware of the ever increasing chemtrails in the skies and will notice the complete media silence concerning this topic. Weather stations are told that this is a forbidden subject because of “national security “and Greenpeace is bribed to say nothing about it or will even fiercely deny it when questioned about it by the public. The same goes for the increasing awareness of the dangers of vaccination. A Dutch government Secretary has even asked a large bookseller (Bol.com) not to sell critical books about vaccinations anymore! Of course, UFO’s are still a very controversial subject, although The New York Times internet site has published a report by the Pentagon that UFO’s are real (see the article about UFO’s on this blog). Recent information (since 2015) from whistleblowers about the secret space programs are however totally taboo. One could say that it is important to know when a civilization has developed space travel and has colonized the moon and other planets. But even the facts that the Nazi’s built a base on the Moon in the 40s, and the Americans and Russians, in a joint program, landed on Mars in May 1962, is kept completely silent.71 Contacts between government officials (or the military industrial complex) and extraterrestrials are even more taboo.71A
Spiral of Silence: Why hard core and avant-garde people will speak out
Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann describes in her article “Spiral of Silence” in the “Journal of Communication” why people ignore plain evidence and yield to group pressure: they are afraid that they are getting isolated. This is called “pluralistic ignorance”. In this theory some people see through the lies but are afraid to tell the truth because they could be socially isolated, and as a result keep silent (as in the “New Emperor’s Clothes by Andersen).72 However, in this case people must have access to evidence and truth and have to be aware of the difference between the lies in the media and the real truth. Most people are nevertheless so much indoctrinated and brainwashed by the MSM that this is not possible: they just have a false belief system, they have no knowledge of certain true facts that society is unaware of. Noelle-Neumann thinks however that there are two types of people who will speak out, in defiance of isolation: the hard core and the avant-garde. Hard-core people are already overpowered and have nothing to lose, like Assange. Avant-garde people are the intellectuals, artists and reformers who express the new ideas in society. “Those who belong to the avant-garde are committed to the future, and thus by this necessity they are also isolated, but their conviction that they are ahead of their time enables them to endure.” 72 Needless to say is that these hard core and avant-garde people first have to de-brainwash themselves and have to do deep research, before they are able to speak out about what they have discovered. Fortunately, there are a number of investigative journalists who speak out on their own websites (see Part One).
A case of media complicity in waging wars: Iraq
“The democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddegh, a true patriot who introduced great social change in his country, [and nationalized the oil industry], was overthrown in a CIA and M16 arranged coup, in 1953.” 73 Then there was the government of the US marionet Shah Reza Pahlavi.74 In 1958 Abdul-Karim Qassim took control of Baghdad and overthrew the monarchy of the Shah. This movement was widely supported by the people and it is still referred to as the revolution of the 14th of July.75 “On February 8, a military coup in Baghdad, in which the Baath Party played a leading role, overthrew Qassim.” “The CIA had funded the Ba'ath Party - of which Saddam Hussein was a young member - when it was in opposition.” "The CIA were definitely involved in that coup. We saw the rise of the Ba'athists as a way of replacing a pro-Soviet government with a pro-American one.” Besides the execution of Qassim the CIA murdered thousands of lesser known political figures.”76. “However, by the late 1980s it was apparent that Saddam did not want to follow Saudi Arabia in becoming a slave and ally to the USA. This was a major frustration and a great embarrassment to the first Bush administration.”77 “In August of that year , the American mass media kept telling us that Saddam Hussein was the leading devil on the planet. That as an aggressor, he had invaded Kuwait, a former British colony.” Sherman Skolnick said: “There was plenty that the oil-soaked, spy-riddled monopoly press did not tell us, such as: that in the 1980s, George Herbert Bush had secretly been Saddam’s business partner and that, together, they had extorted tens of billions of dollars in “protection money” from the weak oil sheikdoms. For the decade of the 1980’s, this partnership profited by upwards of 25 billion per year, for a total of upwards of 250 billion dollars for the decade, making the Bush/Saddam pair two of the wealthiest people on the planet.” 78 Saddam was led to believe that the USA would do nothing if he invaded Kuwait.79 “The American press-fakers peddled a knowingly false satellite photo showing Saddam’s troops supposedly gathering on the Saudi/Kuwait border for an invasion of Saudi Arabia. It was a blatant fraud, calculated to garner the world’s support for what Daddy Bush was doing.” 80 “To manipulate the public into supporting the war, the daughter of Kuwait’s Ambassador, Nayirah, gave false testimony, coached by US PR company Hill & Knowlton, by saying on tv that “They [Iraqi soldiers] took the babies out of the incubators [of the hospital in Kuwait City], took the incubators, and left the babies on the cold floor to die.” 81 “Right before the bombing started, in mid-January, a major Washington Post-ABC poll revealed something interesting. People were asked , if Iraq would agree to withdraw from Kuwait in return for Security Council consideration of the problem of Arab-Israeli conflict, would you be in favor of that? By two-to-one, the population was in favor of that. So was the whole world, including the Iraqi democratic opposition. Certainly, nobody in the press had said that it would be a good idea.”82. “At the close of the Persian Gulf War in 1991, upwards of 150.000 Iraqi conscript troops were returning to Iraq, in effect under a white flag of surrender. On the “Highway of Death” occurred the most ghastly war crime in the history of the world. President Daddy Bush ordered US military aircraft and ground units to kill those surrendered troops by shooting them in the back, from the air and on the ground. Bush also ordered US military bulldozers to bury the slaughtered Iraqi troops. some of them still alive, in mass, unmarked graves in the desert.”83 In 2003 the United States invaded Iraq for the second time in a little over a decade. Economic invasion and hired killers had failed.84 “After the September 11th attacks, the George W. Bush administration made a false accusation that the Iraq government had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) which led to a US invasion eventually toppling Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. “[American journalist] Judith Miller and the New York Times played a crucial role for the Bush administration. Miller wrote one of the main articles on Iraq’s “WMDs” that justified the Bush administration agenda to topple Saddam Hussein. The article was not just “fake” news telling a lie that deceived the public, it destroyed a sovereign nation. The US war against Iraq killed more than 1,4 million Iraqis and more than 4,400 US troops and tens of thousands permanently injured.”85. (The real reason for the US war on Iraq is not mentioned in the main stream media: it was the decision by Saddam Hussein to be paid by Euro's in stead of dollars for his oil, made in Dec. 2000, - at the request of France and other European countries -, although the MSM published the fact itself. The entire value of the dollar (which are printed with virtually no costs bij the "Federal" "Reserve" "Bank" (which is not national, not a bank and they do not have any "reserves"), is based on the world-wide oil trade with dollars, which is why it is called the "petro-dollar". If other countries, for instance OPEC countries, would also get the idea to want to be paid in Euro's, this would be the end of the dollar and with it, the end of the USA.) “By the time the shooting started on March 20, 2003, Saddam, according to very knowledgeable sources, had already left the country. The exit was arranged by the Moscow government, with the knowledge of not aid of the Paris government, and with the full knowledge and connivance of Prime Minister Tony Blair and George W. Bush, all supervised by Daddy Bush. Just as the deadline passed on Wednesday, March 19, 2003, the CIA with the US military brass covered up these and other events herein described by a much-trumpeted effort to supposedly assassinate Saddam in Baghdad, using bunker-busting weapons. It was a treasonous fraud...”86 Saddam Hussein flew to Minsk airport and lives in Moscow (if he is still alive today).87 Then began the theatre of “capturing Saddam Hussein” (15-12-2003), even after the US government had said in March 2003 that Saddam died after the bombing of his bunker. “The US military did themselves not capture, in Dec. 2003, Saddam Hussein. He [a nephew of Saddam Hussein] was seized by the Kurds and held by them for the US ransom. The pay-off they demanded was for 40 billion dollars and the promise that Kurdistan will be a separate nation. The Bushies took over the custody of Saddam Hussein. Thereafter, to double-cross the Kurds, [instead of paying the 40 billion dollars], Georg W. Bush ordered the American CIA to murder, by bombing, hundreds of Kurd leaders and followers at a Kurd meeting where many hundreds of Kurds were also severely wounded.”88 Saddam Hussein had at least three doubles, and the man who was captured by the Kurds was a nephew of Saddam and one of his three doubles. The Kurds did not know that he was not the real Hussein. When Saddam’s wife and daughter visited the nephew in prison they said: “It’s not him!” 89, 90, 91. Also Saddam’s mistress said he was not the real Saddam: she said that the giveaway was the eyes. One of the most remarkable differences with the real Saddam were his teeth: while Saddam had perfect teeth, the nephew had very bad teeth.90 Saddam Hussein also had a small tattoo on the back of his left hand, which was missing on the hand of his nephew. Instead, they brainwashed him into believing that he was Saddam Hussein himself. The whole period, from the “capturing” until the “hanging” of “Saddam Hussein” was a very embarrassing media show, which the world just swallowed as the truth. (Because the last part of the hanging was not shown in the media, it is said that the nephew was not really killed.) It was the intention of the US government to destroy Iraq as a nation, as a culture, as a people, and its history, which has pretty much become reality. (Let’s not forget that Mesopotamia, which was located on the borders of Iraq and Iran, was the birth place of culture, astronomy, mathematics, art, medicine, technology and religion. When people robbed the Museum in Bagdad from all the priceless historical artefacts, the American soldiers did nothing.) This could not have been done without the deliberate help of the media. If or when large international global tribunals are going to be held where the criminal elite will stand trial, they should not forget to indict journalists like Judith Miller for crimes against humanity.

16. The Problem with the Main Stream Media, Part One: The Enemy of the State is the Enemy of the Press (02-06-2019)
(Sections in blue have been edited after publication on 17-06-2019)
During the three months after the day on which I threw away my television set in 2013, I discovered that I had been brainwashed and indoctrinated throughout my life by the main stream media. I have not been reading national newspapers very much because they had become far too expensive, except while passing the newspapers stands at gas stations and supermarkets, to get a quick glimpse at the covers, but the content was the same as on tv. So, beginning in the summer of 2013, I started looking for alternative news sources on the internet and it took me a couple of years to find the “deepest” insiders blogs, websites and documentary’s, of which the most important were paid services, but I gladly paid for these. Nowadays I am pretty much un-brainwashed, de-propagandized and un-indoctrinated. I realized that this was a threefold process: 1. it appeared imperative to stop watching tv altogether, 2. it was important to find at least 5 to 6 different alternative reliable (internet) news sources to be able to do comparative research about what happened in the world, 3. it was necessary to read about the real history of the world of the last 100 years or so. Half of the critical books about the main stream media which I found, contained already information about what really happened. At first, I tried to skip these chapters because I was just interested in the critique about the media. But as time went on, I realized that just reading truthful news about today’s world would not detoxify my brain from all the lies I had downloaded since my childhood. So, I started to read about what really happened in Vietnam and Korea, about the true story of WWI and WWII, the true origin of Israel and the occupation of Palestine, about the war against the democracies in South-American countries, why there are dictators in African countries, what really happened in Syria, the truth about Eritrea, the true reason of the war in Yugoslavia, and so on. During the seven months I worked on this article, a different picture of the world began to appear. The image that the main stream media are pushing is so completely different from the real world that I cannot watch tv or read a news paper anymore without becoming physically ill.
Also, I realized that getting to know the truth about a certain topic, like 9/11, did not do the job. In 2004 I received a DVD about the 9/11 lies, so I started my own research. At a certain point I had learned so much that I could have given a lecture of 12 hours at a stretch about all the lies and anomalies of the official 9/11 story. But this did not lead to a clearer view of the totality of the news. If I had known then that the worst source was the brainwashing tv-propaganda, I would have kicked out the tv set a lot earlier.
This article focusses mainly on the media in the USA, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands. All European countries, Canada, Australia, Japan, and large parts of Asia are strongly under the influence of the USA, but the situation in Europe is the worst. Investigative reporter Andre Vltchek: “I have lived and worked on all continents, and I have to testify that Europeans are easily the most indoctrinated and the worst-informed people on the planet”.1
Since the reader could be in any stage of the de-brainwashing phase, it is possible that certain parts of this article could be hard to believe. All I can say is that I read thousands of pages of books written by serious investigative reporters who were on the ground doing research all around the world, books and studies by scientists and by other deep-researchers, I used logic, my intuition and discernment to compare all the facts and topics, to be able to exclude anything that seemed unreliable or false. Also, I first made 843 references, before writing the article, just to be on the safe side.
Definition of "Main Stream Media"
In this article the Main Stream Media (MSM) are viewed as mainly consisting of the national newspapers (the “press”) and national television. Although magazines, movies, radio broadcasts, cable tv, local newspapers and book publishers are also part of the main stream media, and they are owned by the same five multinational corporations that own the press and tv. The main focus is nevertheless on the “press” (national newspapers) and television.
The Purpose of the Media
“The primary purpose of gathering and distributing news and opinions is to serve the general welfare by informing the people and enabling them to make judgements on the issues of the time.” We can read this in the “Statement of Principles” by the American Society of Newspapers.2 The media of today have diverted from this definition so far that it seems virtually impossible to turn the ship around. We can certainly not expect any beneficial state interference, and also the economy is pushing the media into their current role. The result is that the MSM are giving the public a completely distorted image of the world. Also, according to Bagdakian: “It robs the public of a chance to understand the real world”3 Of course, an “image” of the world is something different than a concrete experience of the world. The first can be called a “belief system”, whereas the latter is the experienced, concrete daily reality. That’s why investigative reporters on the ground are so important: they experience the world on a concrete, daily basis – and this has also an impact on their belief system of course - .) A belief system can be easily changed, manipulated or altered, and that is exactly what the MSM are doing. And this is done intentionally, with great skill and expertise, sometimes with actual “Programs” or “Operations", like “Operation Mockingbird”, but generally by brainwashing and indoctrinating media workers from the top down, (journalists are also people), letting everyone in the media know that it is not in their interest to rock the status quo, threats made by the government, the CIA and advertisers, to uphold an illusion of “democracy”, “humanitarian goals”, and “fighting evil countries/dictators/terrorists”. (More about this topic in the sections “Truth and the Media” and “The Public”.) So, I guess we have to wait until the whole society is changing, including politics and the economy. This will have to start as a grass roots movement, because anything democratic must come from the people. We are seeing already more and more people becoming active on environmental issues. (See also the section “The media and the future”.)
The Illusion of the Free Press
I have found three scientific studies of the MSM: one about television (“News From Nowhere” by Epstein, 1974), one about the influence of the elite on German journalists (by Uwe Krüger, 2014), and one about the “Illusion of the Free Press” (by John Charney, 2018). I will use the latter for this section because it is recent, very scientific, deeply analyzed, objective, and because any other source or view can be compared with it. Charney analyzed all critical books about the MSM written from 1644 till today, and analyzed the internet and social media up till 2018. His scientific conclusion is that the press cannot be truthful because of political, economic and social reasons [my wording]. Also, the added new sources of the internet and social media have only made the existing critique more valid and more serious. So, the situation is even worse now. Because of the changing economic trends since the 80s, there are hardly any main stream media investigative reporters left. Together with the demand of speed concerning news sites and blogs on the internet, journalists do not have the time to check the facts of a story and most of the time copy a story from the “wire” (like Associated Press), which is written by a political spokesperson or a PR-person. The elite (also called “the powers that be”, “the Cabal”, “the military-industrial complex”, “deep state”, “the shadow government”, etc.) use the MSM to push their agenda onto the public, so that for instance planned wars are accepted as “just, necessary and humanitarian”, so that the public will enthusiastically support these and parents will send their sons and daughters to their death for “the good cause”. Any truth about the real ideologies and policies of the elite and the corporations (e.g. expansion, colonialization, control, power, depopulation, warfare, stealing oil, gold, diamonds and other natural resources) have to remain absolutely hidden from the public view. (More about this topic in the section “Propaganda”.) Charney’s end conclusion is nevertheless rather strange: “The illusion of a free press is an epistemological necessity”4 Meaning: people have to believe that a free press is a remote possibility (an illusion), otherwise they cannot handle the connection between the view which is given by the media and their view of the real world, will become crazy and will end up in a psychiatric ward. His motivation is the following: “Even if we know that the press is far form being free and independent, even if we know that it is subject of a series of constraints that severely affect how it portrays social reality, we still cling to the illusion of the free press. We do it because we need it. In fact, if we renounce the illusion, we renounce social reality itself.” It is possible that some people would get insane when their world view would collapse if they would be confronted by information about the secret space programs for instance, or about the treaty Eisenhower signed with aliens in the 40s, or about the slave colonies on Mars, with millions of people, run by Germans. Many people cannot even cope with the truth about 9/11: they have said that they will not and cannot believe it, after they have heard the facts. Charney covered only the "scientific" literature about the media, and since there is a lot of information available which is not "scientific" but nevertheless very important, one of the things he missed was the CIA program known as “Operation Mockingbird”.
The Media and the CIA
From the article: “The CIA and the Media: 50 Facts the World Needs to Know” by Professor James Tracy, 5 I can only discuss a few of these facts. “Operation Mockingbird” took off during the years of the OSS (Office for Strategic Services, 1942-1947), the forerunner of the CIA. A mockingbird is a bird that imitates the songs of other birds. In this case the CIA imitated their own songs in the main stream media network: the newspapers, tv and radio broadcasters, publishers, magazines, etc. Hundreds of journalists were paid by the CIA. The CIA also had their own “training center for journalists”; they also had their own publishers who look independent to the public. The main activity was to place CIA developed reports before journalists, who copied or cited these reports which would then be cited throughout the wire services around the world. “A CIA operative told Washington Post owner Philip Graham in a conversation about the willingness of journalists to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories: You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month”6 Former reporter at the Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung (FAZ) Udo Ulfkotte: “Another controllable number: 74% of all German reporters let themselves be bribed willingly.”7 A few important media sources that “work” with the CIA are: The Washington Post, New York Times, Newsweek, Los Angeles Times, NBC, CBS, AP, ABC, UPI, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Wall Street Journal, Time, Fortune and numerous foreign press services such as the Rome Daily American. Bob Woodward, (known from the movie “All the President’s Men” which is about the Watergate story), was himself a Pentagon Operative, who did not know how to use a typewriter when he started at the Washington Post as a “journalist”, and who was – in the movie - fed information by “Deep Throat” in a parking garage; in reality his own throat, because he just told the Washington Post what he was allowed to tell by the CIA director. 8, 9 (The real purpose of the publication of the so-called “discovered secrets” of Watergate was to remove Richard Nixon as president.) An example of the complete manipulation of the media and the public view was the Warren Commission’s Report on the murder of JFK: “I have never seen an official report greeted with such universal praise as that accorded the Warren Commissions finding when they were made public on Sept. 24, 1964” recalled investigative reporter Fred Cook 10 To get an idea of how much money the CIA used for propaganda: just in the year 1978 alone the CIA spent 265 million dollars for propaganda purposes, which was the same as the total combined budget of the three major news corporations.11 Some newspapers needed no manipulation because the management was “owned” by the CIA, (Time, Newsweek, New York Times), or the chief editor was a very good friend of a CIA director (Katherine Graham/Washington Post and Henry Luce/Time and Life magazines). An example of CIA manipulated news was a CIA operation in relation to the war in former Yugoslavia. Because the USA wanted to steal the natural resources of Kosovo and Serbia, they organized a war between Bosnia and Serbia. The goal was to break up Yugoslavia in a few independent states. CIA agents were sent to Yugoslavia with millions of dollars, to manipulate NGO’s, politicians and opposition leaders. Genocide was planned and it was decided that Serbia would be the scapegoat for the genocide. In order to start this war, propaganda was needed for the main stream media, to create hate against Bosnia. CIA agents wrote the ”official statements” which were sent to the tv stations. The news presenters read these documents literally, live on the air, without knowing that it was written by the CIA, because it was handed to them by the chief of the tv station – who must have known, so the tv stations were complicit.12 Former German journalist Udo Ulfkotte confirms this method: “So one day the BNB, the foreign intelligence agency, came to my office at the Frankfurter Allgemeine, in Frankfurt. and they wanted me to write an article about Libya and about Muammar Gaddafi. I had absolutely no secret information regarding Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and Libya, but they gave me this secret information, and they just wanted me to write, to sign the article with my name. I did that, but it was an article that was published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine that originally came from the German foreign intelligence agency.”13 “Operation Gladio” (60s till the 80s) was a collaboration between western secret agencies and NATO, which carried out bombings and shootings which were then sold to the public as “terrorist attacks”. This is not to say that this is just a thing of the past. Former CIA agent and author of the book “Open Source Everything” Robert David Steele: “The CIA manipulation of the news media is worse in the 2010s than in the 70s.”14 Also, the more recent “terrorist attacks” as in Oslo, Madrid, London, Boston, Las Vegas, Paris, Brussels, Moscow, New Zealand, Nice, and Berlin, etc. were carried out by secret services from different countries (who work very close together).
What the Elite or Alpha Journalists Do
Most enlightening is the book “Bought Journalists” written by Udo Ulfkotte, a German journalist who worked for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (1986-2003) and broke free from the media-system that is manipulated by the secret services, NATO and organizations that work for American interests in Europe. Concerning the CIA he said: “Because as I began to understand during the years I was working abroad was that almost all foreign reporters from American or British newspapers were at the same time working for the national secret services.”15 And: “…in the summer of 2014 Human Rights Watch published a long report about the restrictions of the “freedom of the press” because of an increasingly intensive supervision by the American secret services”.16 It is normal for elite journalists, says Ulfkotte, to be invited by big corporations or corrupt governments, to fly around the world first class, sleep in 5 star hotels, get drinks and food, drive around in SUV’s, all for free, paid by these corporations (e.g. Coca Cola, Thyssen-Krupp, Volkswagen, Dell, Boeing, Nestlé), in exchange for a positive story in the newspaper. Once he found a woman sitting on his bed in a hotel in Namibia, and later found out that this was a “free service” paid for by a certain corporation or government. He was a welcome guest in the holiday mansion of Conrad Adenauer, La Collina, at lake Como, Italy, which was at a few minutes distance by a ferry from the Rockefeller Foundation in Bellagio. “Top politicians ferried from La Collina to the Rockefeller Foundation to get instructions for their political behavior”.17 The main purpose of the CIA and the NATO was, according to Ulfkotte, to get in contact with journalists, get to know them, and inviting them to parties and conferences, in order to “become friends” (read: “friends of the USA”). Once the journalists were used to this kind of relationships, they could not write anything negative anymore about the USA. They had the feeling that they belonged to an elite society, where they were very privileged and shared the same views and ideologies as the elite. So, this was actually a purely psychological indoctrination, because they were never directly told what to write and what not to write. But they understood very well that writing anything negative about the USA was taboo, and also could cost their job or even their life (as Ulfkotte found out: he died of a “heart attack” on 13-01-2017.) Organizations such as the Trilateral Commission, (founded by David Rockefeller), the Bilderberg Group (at the 2018 Bilderberg meeting were present: Anne Applebaum/Washington Post, Peggy Noonan/Wall Street Journal, and George Osborne/London Evening Standard18 , the Atlantik-Brucke, the German Marshall Fund, the International Institute for Strategic Studies and the Goldman-Sachs Foundation (among others), were instrumental in getting elite or “Alpha” journalists to work for them. Corporate interests were all important. Elite journalists knew also that they could not discuss Ulfkotte’s work: “no mainstream German journalists were allowed to write about [my] book, or he or she will be sacked.”19
Government Harassment and Threats
“Even in the Bundestag [the German parliament] was said (116th assembly) that a FAZ [Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung] publisher “was kicked out”, reported Ulfkotte20 This publisher was Paul Sethe, one of the founders of the FAZ. Also, FAZ publisher Jurgen Thern was fired, as was Hugo Muller-Vogg, after working for 24 years at the FAZ21 “Angela Merkel had called for a meeting of all German journalists in 2008 and compelled them to work according to a “common course”. One experiences something similar in banana republics, where coup plotters occupy the radio stations to bring their truth to the public.”22 A recent example of government influence on the media in France: “French journalists are being threatened with jail time for reporting on leaked documents revealing the country´s complicity in the Saudi-led war in Yemen after they refused to answer questions from anti/terror police”23 Also, in the Netherlands the government does not like journalists who are not in line. French Journalist Florence Hartmann was arrested by security guards of the International Criminal Court in the Hague on March 24, 2016, for “contempt”. She spent six days in prison.
What did she do? She reported about the real perpetrators of the war in Yugoslavia: USA and the western countries (see the section “The media and the CIA"). Because there are no other courts for appeal besides The Yugoslavia Tribunal, the judges of the ICC were at the same time the prosecutors and the judges in her case, so, this is certainly a case of criminal harassment, also because nothing that she wrote was not already known.24Another Dutch story about threats made by the government towards journalists: In a report by the Dutch Journalists Organization (NVJ) Alex Brenninkmeijer states that “Journalists have to receive more protection by the Justice Department”.25 “97% of the (Dutch) journalists think that all the threats [from society] form a threat to the freedom of the press.” Among the mentioned perpetrators are: criminals, conspiracy-thinkers, corporations, Moroccan and Turkish youth, but also: “the government”. The Dutch government had threatened journalists with lawsuits and “other acts of retaliation”, according to journalist Wilfried Takken in this Dutch newspaper article 26 One wonders if the Justice Department will ever look into this matter. All the more so since former top bureaucrat at the Dutch Justice Department and homosexual child rapist Joris Demmink was never found guilty, even as the evidence against him was very strong 27,28 This case demonstrates that the justice system in the Netherlands is corrupt. A related story is reported by Ulfkotte: “Another informant showed me a children’s playground at Fuggerstrasse in Berlin, where men could let themselves drive by slowly to pick out children, which were then delivered for child sex, prepaid.” 29
Corporations and the Media
Although it is very close to the truth, journalists do not generally get their instructions from the Rockefeller Foundation, like the politicians in the above section. It is a little more complicated. One problem is the influence on the media by the corporate world. There are five large multinational corporations which own all the media in the world, not only the newspapers and the television networks, but also radio stations, cable tv stations, magazines, local media, movies and many book publishers. So, they have control over massive amounts of information that is coming into the public domain. But the people are influenced most of all by newspapers and even more by television. The big five are: Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann and Viacom. When we take Bertelsmann as an example; they own more than 296 tv and radio stations, magazines, publishers and music labels all over the world, including all RTL tv and radio stations.30 Bertelsmann was the main publisher for the Nazi’s during WWII, so this is certainly interesting. They also work together with corporations as Siemens, Deutsche Bank, GlaxoSmithKline, all very suspect organizations for various reasons (among others that they profit from wars and sick people). The Rockefeller family owns CBS, NBC and ABC via the majority of the shares in United Air Lines, who owns these broadcasters.31 Arthur Temple, former chairman of Time Inc. (now Time Warner), seemed to have said: “What our country needs worse than anything is freedom from the press. The press is absolutely intolerable today”.32 Another remark by Bagdikian: “The influence of media corporations on broadcast laws, for example, is an example of the results – almost complete disappearance of serious national and worldwide news from local radio and television stations.”33 So, you have to be very naïve to believe that the large corporations do not have any influence on the freedom of the press. Bagdikian about television and radio: “The airwaves, the broadcast frequencies on which most Americans depend, happen to be public property. For all practical purposes these public airwaves have been expropriated by giant media corporations.”34 In the Netherlands we have Media House, who owns NRC, De Telegraaf, Metro, De Limburger and the daily newspapers of Holland Media Combination. And there is "De Persgroep", who owns: Algemeen Dagblad, Volkskrant, Gelderlander, Trouw, De Stem, De Twentsche Courant Tubantia, Het Parool, Brabants Dagblad, Stentor and the Provinciaalse Zeeuwse Courant, and also QMusic and AT5.35 No wonder that exactly the same articles (from “the wire”) can be seen in different newspapers, especially when it concerns propaganda from the Empire, in which for instance Russia and Venezuela are “evil” or “socialist dictatorships”.
Investigative journalism in the main stream media is virtually nonexistent today. I did find however a few exceptions: 1. the research done by the Boston Globe in 2002 concerning the abuse of children by the Catholic Church in Boston (of which the movie “Spotlight” is made), See here, and the report from journalists who travelled to Syria to see what the people had to say.
I also found a critical article in the Nieuwe Rotterdamse Courant (NRC) of 09-12-2014 about Gaza: “Europe gives aid, but Israel demolishes the projects again”. One of the projects was Yassar Arafat International Airport, built in 1998, which was funded by Germany, Sweden and Spain with 9,5 million euros, and was destroyed by Israel in 2001 and 2002. An article in a Dutch newspaper with criticism about Israel is very rare because the Dutch government is extremely pro-Israel. (The Netherlands like to uphold a smokescreen of “justice”, with the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which is totally incompetent and probably corrupt, so for the Dutch government to support the criminal fascist Israeli government which violates a number of international laws, is very strange.)
What is investigative journalism? A journalist who is researching a certain subject on the ground, gathering facts, evidence, statements and opinions, talking with relevant witnesses, researching books, documents and articles, as long as it takes, to come to a rational, logical conclusion, which is as true as it can get using his higher intuition, and which validity can be checked by the reader. There are still investigative journalists, but they are almost always independent, their articles are posted often on critical and independent websites and often have their own blog or website. Journalists who work for a newspaper or tv or radio station are under a number of restricting circumstances and conditions, like the demand for speed (to write an article for an internet news site journalists have about 5 minutes time), demands and threats from advertisers and the government, self-censoring, PR propaganda, brainwashing by the CIA and the government, other journalists, the public (“public opinion”), competition with other newspapers or other media, the fear of being fired (or killed) when telling the truth, greed, and last but not least: the ambition to become a famous Alpha journalist who can live among the jet set and can travel around the world for free because everything is paid for by the big corporations and governments.
There have always been brave investigative reporters. To name a few: Sherman Skolnick, John Pilger, Gary Webb, Noam Chomsky, Raymond Bonner, Charlie Leduff, Howard Zinn, Sydney Schanberg, Andre Vltchek, Fred Cook, Maria Ressa, Serena Shim, Melody, Günther Wallraff, and Carmelo Abbate. A few of these were murdered, like Gary Webb and Serena Shim. Gary Webb discovered in 1996 that the Nicaraguan “Contras” were supplied with guns by the CIA, which were paid for by the CIA cocaine traffic in the USA. (It was not publicly known very well in those days that the CIA paid for most of their black projects with drug money, especially from Afghan heroin.) “Gary Webb´s story was attacked merciless by the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, all of them supported by official stories, including the CIA itself. Webb resigned in Dec. 1997, a highly successful career ruined.”36 (Maybe it is no coincidence that Jason Bourne´s “real” name, - in the movies -, is David Webb.) German investigative reporter Gunther Wallraff started to work under cover first in 1969, when he published "13 undesired reports" in which he described what he experienced when acting the parts of an alcoholic, a homeless person, and a worker in a chemical’s factory. In 1985 his book “Ganz Unten” (Dutch title: “Ik, Ali”), in which he reported his working conditions as an undercover immigrant factory worker, created much noise in Europe. One of his other courageous activities: in 1974 he chained himself to a lantern post in Athens, Greece, and handed out flyers about the Greek military dictators. He was arrested, tortured by the secret police, and sentenced to 14 months in prison. They thought that he was a Greek dissident because he did not carry any identification with him, which was on purpose.37
Sherman Skolnick and Andre Vltchek
I will discuss the work of two investigative journalists a little more detailed: Sherman Skolnick and Andre Vltchek.
Sherman Skolnick (1958-2006) was one of America’s most courageous and outrageous independent journalists, and an attorney who was fiercely battling the corrupt judiciary system. Because of his work twenty corrupt judges and forty corrupt attorneys went behind bars in the period 1969-1993.38 In 1971 he started to make public the results of his investigative work by means of twenty telephone lines which played recorded articles. Later he was the producer of the Chicago Cable tv show “Broadsides”.39 Collections of his articles can be found in his books “Overthrow of the American Republic” and “Ahead of the Parade”. Bob Woodward was very afraid of Skolnic because he feared that Skolnick would blow his cover as a fake journalist during lectures or court hearings.40 He was working on a book about air plane sabotage, but could never publish it: the printing was stopped at the publisher and no copies became available.41 He had discovered, among many other secrets, that admirals and generals wanted to arrest the then President Bill Clinton for treason (Clinton had sold highly classified information about missiles to the Chinese). On the way to Washington their plane crashed which resulted in the death of everyone aboard (17-04-1995).42 Clinton had a spy at the Pentagon (Monica Lewinsky), who found out about the planned move of the admirals and generals, and Clinton had the plane sabotaged 43 (Interestingly, Trump was asked by the military if he wanted to become president. Initially, the military brass wanted to arrest president Obama for treason. But they thought that this would possibly look like a coup d’etat to the public, so they chose for a more legal way.) 44 Skolnick was put on Hillary Clinton’s “enemy list” because he knew some dirty secrets about her. (Fortunately, he was not placed on her “kill list” – Bill and Hillary had quite a number of people killed because these people had evidence that could have put them behind bars for the rest of their lives -). He also had discovered that the body parts of executed Chinese political prisoners were sent to the Rockefeller owned University of Chicago Hospitals in Illinois for transplantation. The body parts were handled by the Chinese Secret Police in the USA 45, 46 Skolnick always called the main stream media: “the oil-soaked, spy-riddled, monopoly press”.
Andre Vltchek is still among us and is an independent reporter (he does not want to be called a “journalist”), novelist, filmmaker and philosopher. His articles are collected in his monumental book “Exposing Lies of the Empire”, of 8oo pages. Vltchek lives and works all over the world and has done research on the ground, speaking with people who live on almost unreachable locations, in countries as Venezuela, Indonesia, DR Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Cuba, Ukraine, Chili, India, Syria, Namibia, Japan, etc. His articles are specially important if you want to know the true history of many countries, what the USA exactly did to “colonize”, destroy and control these countries, which countries are real democracies (like Eritrea) and why the media/USA call these countries “socialist dictatorships”47 why common people in countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Syria and Venezuela know far more about the real policies of the USA than people in Europe. He is very truthful, mad as hell (about the destruction of the world by the “Empire”), and a tireless worker. His book “Exposing Lies of the Empire” is eye-opener for sleep-walking Europeans and a must-read for anyone who has a heart for people and democracy.

15. 5G: Silent Warfare (04-03-2019)
Some people think that 5G is just the next generation of Wi-Fi (after 4G), but this is definitely not the case. The technology of 5G is seriously different and far more dangerous. The plan is to place antennas every 100 meters and to launch 200.000 new satellites, with power that is about 20 times stronger than with 4G. So, every square meter on the planet will be under the lethal radiation, including all mountains and all oceans, all animal, plant and sea life. Does this sound a little exaggerated? Not according to many doctors, scientists and whistleblowers.
They say that because the part of the spectrum that is used for radio frequencies, for such things as radio, cell phones, tv, satellite communication, all military tactical and war communication, Wi-Fi, etc., has almost reached its maximum capacity (is this even true?), the people behind the scenes (military, multinationals, technocrats) have come up with the unholy plan to use another part of the spectrum: between 30 and 300 Gigahertz. Because frequency and wavelengths have a set correlation, this means that shorter wavelengths are necessary: of a few millimeters. (The total range of “radio” waves is from 3 Hertz to 300 Gigahertz, and the corresponding wavelengths are between 1 kilometer and 1 millimeter). The wavelength of 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G is between 65 cm and 12 cm. These waves can travel through brick walls (but not through thick concrete). The towers are placed high so the radiation travels through and above the houses. With 5G the wavelength is only a few mm, and these waves are blocked by brick walls (buildings). The “solution” is to boost up the power 20 times. To give some numbers: the Austrian safety limit is 0,6 Volts/m, the actual Wi-Fi radiation is around 6 V/m. But 5G will radiate 60 to 125 V/m. The safety limit for biological organisms is 0,1 V/m, as is determined by scientists, and 0,3 V/m is called the "genocide limit". (The official limit for the Netherlands is 61 V/m.) To get this power with 5G, square flat phased array antennas are used, similar to the HAARP antenna’s in Alaska (2,3) (but can now be made on a very small scale. A 50 GHz base station can have 64 to 1024 antennas and the size will only be 4 inches square (10x10 cm). This means also 64 to 1024 pointed beams, instead of one wide beam with 4G. The 5G towers will be placed low (about 2 meters from the ground) and will directly beam (horizontally) at people and houses, in combination with the beams from 200.000 satellites. Also, phased array antennas have the capacity to concentrate and steer the radiation to a point where the energy is at its peak, - say at 300 meter or 50 km - , (compared to 2/3/4G cell phone towers in which the energy diminishes with the distance), and generating more power than the sum of the antennas. This makes distance irrelevant. They can also beam at a specific target, like a person or a someone’s head or eye. Inside a 5G smart phone there may be (16) tiny antennas, all working together to track the nearest tower. As much as 20 Watts can be generated, against an average of 2 Watt in a 4G phone (9). A 5G tower can generate no less than 900.000 Watts (9), and the radiation is going right through your body when you are walking between someone’s phone and a tower. 5G is 400 times higher than the “genocide limit”! In September 2018 5G tests were carried out by HS on Hoefkade 3 in The Hague, which caused the death of 238 sparrows: the sparrows just fell dead to the ground, sometimes more than a hundred at once. (10) This is the first proof witnessed by citizens, that 5G is lethal. (Very interesting: in the tv series FlashForward hundreds of birds fell dead from the sky in Africa as the result of a secret experiment with large radiaton towers.) See also here: Canada: also sparrows.) The technology of 5G has not been tested. Everything that comes on the market, from children’s toys to bicycles tot cars, is tested for all kinds of possible hazards. 5G is not tested. This makes 5G illegal. This is not surprising, since most military weapons are “illegal”, (because harmful or lethal), and 5G is a military weapon, so it is per definition not “safe”. In fact, 5G is a Directed Energy Weapon (or can be used as a Directed Energy Weapon) (6), according to Mark Steele, an expert on military technology (14). Very disturbing is the news that the “health” regulating organizations (like the FCC (24) and the ICNIRP (20) have recently updated the national maximum radiation limits: the new limit in Switzerland for instance is now 200 V/m, instead of 61 V/m (7). This is proof that the “health” organizations are working hand-in-glove with the telecom corporations. Concerning the skin penetration: with “normal” (Wi-Fi) radiation atoms, molecules and cells can be charged with electricity and moved around, but with 5G the electrically charged atoms, molecules and cells become antennas themselves and therefore penetrate much deeper into the body (9).
Very important, especially for people who used wired modems, is that 5G is per definition wireless (this is called Fixed Wireless Access (FAW). The cable networks could be disconnected but this will not happen very soon because of the investments in copper wires and optic fibers. 5G test locations in the Netherlands are: Valthermond (Drenthe), Groningen and The Hague, as far as I know. Haarlem and Apeldoorn want to be the first “smart cities (21) in the Netherlands, which proofs how ignorant the city councils are. Countries in which 5G net work preperations are made are: USA, South-Korea, Sweden, Estonia, Japan and China. Houston and Dallas want to be among the first "smart" cities in the USA.
Summary of the 5G technology
For people who have little time or have trouble with technology, this is a short summary or conclusion:
On September 23, 1998, 66 satellites were launched for the use of the first satellite phones. As a result of this the national (US) death rate rose from 4% to 5%, EHS people (22) got headaches and nose bleeds, and thousands of pigeons lost their way. Since about the year 2000, the IQ of people has dropped with 60% (!) (19), the number of deaths among young people with cell phones caused by brain tumor tripled, dementia in Britain has become the number one killer, and millions of EHS people can only leave their homes shielded by anti-radiation clothing and helmets. The body is for a large part electric: the brain functions are electric (EEG), the heart is triggered by electric pulses (ECG), the nervous system generates electro-magnetic currents, the skin has electric resistance (lie detectors), the muscles react to electricity, etc. Only De Gezondheidsraad thinks that people are bags of salt water (the SAR test for cell phones is based only on the heating up of salt wate: see here.
So, it is no miracle that millions of people are suffering from cancer, diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer, infertility, memory loss, loss of concentration, insomnia, burn-outs, fatigue, leukemia, miscarriages, heart failure, strokes, MS, suicide, headaches, blood cancer, melanin reduction, ADHD, depressions, impotence and chronic fatigue syndrome, since the ever-increasing microwave radiation (although several disease have multiple causes). According to Barrie Trower, a worldwide ban on all microwave radiation is needed within 10 years, or else only 1 in 8 children will be born without defects, and in 5 generations most animals and insects will die out (rats that were exposed to microwave radiation in animal tests were all dead after 5 generations). Needless to say, 5G will be disastrous for EHS people and very dangerous for all other people.
Reactions by scientists, physicians and whistle blowers to the 5G plans
When scientists and experts start using words like “insane”, “5G is lethal” or “this is insanity”, it would be wise to pay attention to what they are saying, and scientist Martin Pall and expert on military technology are saying this. An “International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space” (11) has been launched and has now (15-02-2019) 48.523 signatures (from scientists, doctors, environmental organizations, citizens ). This is directed to the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the EU, the Council of Europe, and governments of all nations (see here.)
Second, scientists and doctors have called for a moratorium on 5G: “The 5G Appeal” (17), (see here). In the Netherlands there are several organizations which have launched a protest campaign, (see here, and here). Most interesting are the YouTube video’s with/from Mark Steele and Martin Pall. See also “Sources” at the bottom of this article.
Who is responsible?
In a very general way, market forces, money, greed, ignorance, power and technological development without moral or spiritual development are responsible for the dire situation on this planet. When we dig deeper, all kinds of organizations, corporations and governments come into focus: telecom corporations, health organizations, national governments, the military industrial complex, main stream media, technological industries, and so on. If we dig deeper still, a very discomforting picture arises: the telecom corporations, the health organizations, the national governments and the main stream media all appear to work together, or in other words: are all corrupt. Essentially because of the money and/or power. An example: ex-CEO’s of KPN and Telfort said on national television (Zembla) that they expected from the Dutch government that they would not take the citizen’s health complaints seriously (i.e. deny that microwave radiation is dangerous), and if they would not comply, the telecom corporations wanted back the 3,8 billion euros, which the government received from the telecom corporations for selling the radio frequencies, plus the 3,8 billion euros that they had invested. (The Italian government was recently paid 6,55 billion euros for the selling of 5G frequencies, so there is little chance that Italy will publicly announce that 5G is dangerous any time soon. see here.)
Concerning the task of the government to protect people’s health: the Dutch government is basing their national health regulations on the advice of the Gezondheidsraad. The Gezondheidsraad uses obsolete and faulty tests and standards in the full knowledge that these are obsolete and faulty. So, everyone is corrupt and millions of citizens who trust the government to protect their health (this is the constitutional duty of the government), get sick or die. The Dutch government created a law (just in time) which says that it is unlawful for citizens to sue the government in all matters of health, because they knew very well that the government would go broke if millions of people would come with claims. If diseases like brain tumor and dementia suddenly rise by 50%, - after the implementation of 5G - , the government will probably say that this is caused by a new virus and that all people must be vaccinated (because they cannot admit that Wi-Fi is dangerous because of the deal with the telecom corporations). So, there is a large, dirty secret brewing under the surface, which can burst any moment, when the critical amount of people wakes up.
What can you do?
Now is the time to look at your life objectively and ask yourself if you really need all these devices like tablets, smart phones, lap tops, Wi-Fi routers, smart watches, DECT phones, microwave ovens and smart meters. A few decades ago I read somewhere that the elite would manufacture advanced technological gadgets in the future, with which they could control the people (23), and the people would even want to buy these! I could not believe this, but this is exactly what has happened. The criminal and corrupt corporations earn billions because the people buy their stuff. If you really want to live (or survive), throw away everything that radiates microwaves.
You can even have a better internet connection with cables. The next thing to do is get informed, give other people information, support protest campaigns, get organized, go to meetings, give lectures, demonstrate. The main stream media are complicit in the whole scam, so you will probably not have heard about the successes. In Italy a judge ruled in favor of a citizen by stating that all Wi-Fi must be removed from a school. In India people succeeded in removing cell phone towers from a populated area, in the Utrechtse Heuvelrug the local government refused to install new 5G street lanterns with LED’s, Wi-Fi, microphones and cameras (5G), because of the protest of its citizens, in libraries in France Wi-Fi is forbidden as a result of the complaints by the employees, all 50 smart meters were removed from the basement of an apartment building in the USA within one hour after the company received a letter from one of the occupants – who could not sleep anymore - about the dangers of radiation. And so, the list goes on. If you are getting unexplained headaches, disorientation, insomnia, etc., after 5G has been installed, it could be wise to buy protective clothing and shielding for your bedroom.
The strange thing is that alternative technology exists but is not used. Optic fibers are safe, fast and cheap and can provide for all internet communication in the world (although it makes it easier for the NSA to copy all communications of people to their servers). Light technology exist that can beam light beams with information from the ceiling in an office to workstations which is completely safe. An alternative technology for all wireless telephone communication exists which is 100% safe and is also cheaper, but we are forced to use the most dangerous technology. This certainly leads to the question why. Why is the most dangerous technology forced upon us? See also my article about microwave radiation on this blog (article No. 8).
On the positieve side
According to Benjamin Fulford the financial CEO of Huawei Technologies Meng Wanzhou, is arrested because she was trying to roll out the 5G network very fast. Of course the main stream media cannot criticize the bosses they are working for, so she was allegedly arrested for fraud. (Benjamin Fulford, 04-02-2019. This information was forwarded to him by agents from several secret services. If this is true, it is very positive that guys behind the screens are working for the good of humanity and the earth.
In 1987 then-president Ronald Reagan said during a speech for the UN: "Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond", (meaning that aliens could attack the earth - which the Cabal are trying to fake now - ). In this case the universal threat is 5G: will the people of the earth unite because of this universal threat? One of the requirements of growth is negativity. Possibly 5G is negative enough for the global uprising and cooperation of all people. So, spread the news.
5G is a Weapon of Mass Destruction.

14. UFO's (11-10-2018)
This article is about UFO’s only, it is however necessary to give some information about extraterrestrials, the media and what astronauts, politicians and professional witnesses have said. (“ET’s” will be a future article.) Since most of the public is more or less aware of the UFO-phenomenon, it would not be very interesting to write an article trying to prove the existence of UFO’s (by giving a long list of UFO-sightings); one can find thousands of articles on the internet and thousands of books that are trying to do just that. A few (positive) articles, written by the US Air Force, have also been published in the main stream media through the decades. The starting point for this article is therefore that UFO’s and ET’s exist. Since 2015 mountains of new information have become available for the public, especially via “Cosmic Disclosure” on Gaia tv (www.gaia.com), Project Camelot (www.projectcamelotportal.com) and David Wilcocks www.divinecosmos.com, (which is the reason it took me 10 months to update my research). So, this is a general article with some new information and some less-known information about the Roswell case.
Kenneth Arnold came up with the term “flying saucer” when he saw from his air plane a row of ships of unknown origin flying in formation above a mountain ridge near Mount Rainier in Washington State on June 24, 1947. These had a crescent shape and looked somewhat like a saucer from a cup of coffee. The name “UFO” (Unidentified Flying Object) became the most popular. Other names that are given are: ODIL (Onbekend Ding In De Lucht, Belgian), OVNI (Objeto Volador No Identificado, Spanish), Ether Ships (e.g. Meade Lane), Vimana’s (ancient India), ARV (Alien Reproduction Vehicle – reverse engineered ET UFO), ETV (Extra Terrestrial Vehicle). The ET UFO’s do not use rocket engines of course, can silently hoover, make right-angle turns that would be deadly for any human, can shoot up vertically with enormous speed and can be visible or invisible to the human eye (alter their frequency). They have been seen for thousands of years and are mentioned in ancient Indian texts and in the Bible (as “burning wheels” etc.). Not all UFO’s come from outer space however.
In (and before) the 40s most UFO’s that were seen were from outside this planet. Since 2015 information has come out that the Nazi’s were developing anti-gravity ships in the 20s and 30s. The famous fly-over in Washington DC in 1952 were Nazi UFO’s. One of the ships they built, the “Hanebu-III”, was an anti-gravity bell-formed ship powered with mercury that could reach 40.000 km/hr. The Americans have one of these in a hangar. The Nazi’s had their own “Roswell”: a UFO crashed in the Black Wood. Completely apart from the Nazi’s, a spiritual association in Germany, the VRIL Society, led by Maria Orsic, received telepathic information from an extraterrestrial civilization which contained blueprints of a thought-controlled anti-gravity space ship. The Nazi’s took over this project when a ship was built and so they had two alien technology sources to reverse engineer UFO’s. Because they could not weaponize these vehicles, they could not use these to win the war. They moved their most advanced technology with very large U-boats to the Antarctic where they built a base under the ice, in a gigantic cavern. Also they received a brandnew ship from an alien race.
The Americans also had this technology because American spies that were sent to Germany during the war brought back information about very advanced technology, which was so advanced that the Americans at first did not believe it. They brought thousands of Nazi scientists to the USA under “Project Paperclip” between 1945 and 1959. War criminals like Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph were given high positions in secret projects, passports, housing, salaries and so on. They reverse engineered crashed and downed UFO’s like the one in Roswell, New Mexico. Eventually they developed very advanced ships at Area 51, S4 (Nevada), Lockheed Skunk Works, Boeing and other places. The famous sightings in Belgium in 1989 and 1990 were caused by the American built TR-3B’s, a triangular anti-gravity nuclear powered black vehicle with lights at the bottom. Today, these are old-school: the ships that they now can build are capable of time travel, teleport, cloak, use worm holes (or “star gates” or “portals” – which can be natural or artificial). They can go to the Moon in 10 minutes. As a result of this, they developed several secret space programs, which are called Secret Space Programs (SSP), - like Solar Warden, ICC (Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate), Dark Fleet and IDARF (Interplanetary Defense And Reaction Forces) - and over a period of time, more countries, and even very rich families, developed their own SSP’s, like Russia, China, India, South-Africa and Brazil (the BRICS countries.)
Extraterrestrial UFO’s, as far as reported, originate from Mars, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon, Andromeda, the Pleiades, Betelgeuse, Lyra, Alpha Centauri, Sirius A and B, Orion, Zeta Reticuli and from far away galaxies and planets with names like Koldas, Kaath, Galdonia, Pyrole and Korendor. Because they use magnetic and/or etheric/temporal drive and time travel, - but more advanced than the American ships - , they can go from Andromeda to the Earth in a split-second.
Shapes and size of extraterrestrial UFO’s
The disc-shape is the best known, but other shapes that are seen are: spherical, triangular, cubic, pyramid-, cigar-, crescent-, and bell-, Delta- or V-shaped. Because they can alter their shape, any form is possible, so the form is not so important. The seize can vary from a few inches in diameter (for instance as remotely controlled information gathering probes), to motherships that are as large as the moon, or even larger. Motherships can be used as “planets”, meaning that thousands of people live in the ship their whole life, and the ship can go wherever they want. Deep insiders have seen organic ships that are thought controlled, even so that (ET) pilots can use their own DNA to “grow” a ship. The DNA of the pilot then matches that of the ship perfectly, in order “fly” (or teleport or time travel) it by thinking. Ships can even be self-conscious and can use their own will concerning to where they want to travel, like the space ship called “MINERVA”.
The Roswell case is certainly the most famous case concerning crashed UFO’s (which could either have been crashed due to failure or shot down by the military). Even a tv-series about the Roswell case (called “Roswell”) was aired between 1999 and 2002. Near Roswell, and Magdalena, New Mexico, three UFO’s crashed in 1947 – one of these was only discovered in 1949 -. The military were experimenting with a new type of ground-to-air radar and some ET-races were not aware of the dangers of this. This type of radar emitted very strong HF signals which could have a disastrous effect on the navigational system, once a ship was maneuvering in the atmosphere using the existing natural electromagnetic waves of the earth. The beings in the ship were not “Greys” but beings that came from Sirius or Zeta Reticuli (this means they were Asian looking with bald heads and normal eyes; not with the big black eyes as they are portrayed everywhere). In this case they did not have permission from their superiors in the mothership that was outside the atmosphere, to enter the atmosphere. They ignored their warnings and could not control the ship anymore once they were hit by radar, and the effect this had on the ships was like an electromagnetic storm with lightning that struck the computer of the ship.
At the soul level they knew that this mission was possibly lethal, but they did not know this at the personal level. The general purpose (of this race) was to create an enigma on earth, a mystery, for all people. To wonder, ask questions, wake up the people. The reason they choose New Mexico was that they knew that survivors would be captured by the military – because this place was near the only base in the USA where they kept an atomic bomb - , who would keep them alive to get advanced technology. One being survived for a couple of years and was called EBE-1 (Extraterrestrial Biological Entity). He was brought to Kirtland Air Force Base and then to Los Alamos. He died around 1952. The bodies of the dead beings were placed in deep freeze and sent to Wright Patterson field in Dayton, Ohio. Because of the conversations an Air Force captain had with the surviving being, technology was developed like laser, microchips, digital computers, cell phones, and so on.
Astronauts and politicians
Several astronauts saw UFO’s while orbiting the earth, and on the moon, but were forbidden to talk about this. Also their memories were erased in certain cases, after returning from space. Neil Armstrong, after landing on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission saw very large ships sitting on the rim of the crater they landed in, who were observing them. (They did go to the moon in 1969, although photographs and films were shot in the movie studio in London, which was used by Stanley Kubrick, in case the mission would fail.) Because the transmissions were rerouted through another station for censoring, the public did not see this, but a few independent radio amateurs could receive it. Edgar Mitchell told rather much about what he saw and knew, and this reached the public. As did Gordon Cooper, Frank Borman, Scott Carpenter and James Lovell. Cooper testified before a UN Committee. Some presidents of the USA were “in the loop” (got information from the CIA), and some were not. President Eisenhower was furious when he discovered that there was a secret group at Area 51 studying UFO’s and working with ET’s which did not want to give any information to him. He threatened to invade Area 51 with his regular army and then they told him a little of what they were doing. Reagan was informed and as a result he decided to build a shield (SDI or “Star Wars”) to protect the USA against an “alien invasion”. Gorbachov knew also much. J.F. Kennedy learned about UFO’s and Roswell from Secretary of Defense James Forrestal in 1945, who wanted the public to know this – and as a result was killed. JFK did not have the time to make this public. The Russian president Medvedev said during a press conference that every new Russian president received a briefcase with information about ET’s and the codes for the nuclear bombs, when he thought that his microphone was switched off.
The National Press Club Conference – May 2001
Steven Greer organized a press conference on May 9, 2001 (at the National Press Club in Washington DC), where people who served at the US Air Force, US Navy, US Army, radar installations, CIA, FBI, DIA and NRO, US Navy, US Army, NORAD, worked at Boeing, Lockheed, etc., could give their testimonies about what they experienced concerning UFO’s and the cover up. Greer knew that they only wanted to talk as a group, because they knew that any one person who would talk, could be easily silenced. Many testimonies are quite shocking, but in the end, it is more shocking that the main stream media are completely silent about this. Beginning in September 2001, the subject of UFO’s was not on anyone’s mind because of 9/11. Still, after 17 years, the media are suppressing everything that has to do with ET’s. In the 50s however, the Air Force published a serious article in LIFE magazine (07-04-1952) about visitors from space. But somewhere in the 50s the lid came down and everything was officially denied.
Reasons for secrecy and redicularization
Official reasons that are given to keep the subject secret are: the public would panic, "there are no UFO's’, "ET’s do not exist", "it is a national defense matter" (secret), "all UFO’s are weather balloons or hallucinations", religious people would go crazy, etc. The real reason is that the people in power, have this power because of the money debt system, the oil & energy industry, Big Pharma and the war industry. ET-contact would certainly lead to the information that none of this is necessary, which means that the elite would lose their power overnight, because of a global uprising of the people. Especially shocking is that the elite has the knowledge to cure all diseases and to age regress people, and that they do not want this to share with the people. (Completely free and non-polluting (etheric) energy could have been implemented more than a hundred years ago for heating and cooling homes, and for transport.) Another real reason was that the military knew that they were no match for the ET’s with their very advanced technology, so they were not able “to protect the citizens”.
There is a relatively new movement that want all the information to come out. Many professionals who have knowledge about the UFO and ET phenomenon want to inform the public. The elite want this also, but they want this to last 50-years, whereas the other party want all the information published in its totality at the same time and as soon as possible (even as they do not know whether people can cope with it), possibly in 2023 or 2024. This phase began with a (forced) publication about information that the Pentagon had about UFO’s, in the online New York Times edition of Dec. 16, 2017: that UFO’s are real.
The NASA is also, very slowly, releasing information about the conditions on Mars and other planets. For decades there was “no life”, “no atmosphere” and “no water” on Mars, but now they are telling that there is water, plant life and a “very thin atmosphere”. Furthermore, almost all countries which have UFO-files, have published these on the internet, (except the Netherlands). Different kinds of publications about UFO's by several governments: (click on this link) USA: 2011, New Zealand: 2010, Brazil: 2009, Denmark: 2009, Canada: 2009, UK: 2011, Russia: 2009, Ireland: 2007, France: 2006, Australia: 2007, Japan: 2007.
Movies and tv series
A few film directors and sf writers, like Lucas (Star Wars), Spielberg (ET), Kubrick (2001, A Space Odyssee), Gene Roddenberry (Star Trek, Earth Final Conflict), Asimov (Bicentennial Man, I Robot II), Philip K. Dick (Total Recall), were informed by the military in order to let them produce movies and series to “warm up” the public, so that the people could get used to the idea that we are not alone. Star Wars, Star Trek, Earth Final Conflict, Total Recall and other films and series are based on real and/or historic information. One deep insider said that the anti-gravity aircraft carriers in the movie “Captain America, Winter Soldier”, look exactly like the real ones. Another said that the food-replicators from Star Trek already exist – although you have to push a button: when you say: "Tea, Earl Grey, hot", nothing happens - .
Astronomers from Harvard have studied a cigar shaped asteroid, since it was
discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii, and have said that it is possibly a space ship. CNN article.

13.2. Reincarnation Part Two: Karma (13-12-2017)
The literal meaning of karma is “action” or “effect”, and is derived from the Greek “Karoti”, which means “he does”. Karma is the Law of Cause and Effect, or with one word: “Harmony”, because the universe wants to restore disrupted balance. A disturbance can be caused on the human level, but also on the atomic, cellular, organic, vegetational, animal, mineral, planetary or solar system level, etc. If we would know what we did in our previous lives, we would understand our personal karma, but it is quite another thing to be aware of, let alone understand, the situations we are going through as the result of family, group, race, national or world karma. Not everything that happens though is the result of karma. There are “bad luck” accidents, new encounters with people, the starvation of millions of people, and physical conditions that are designed by the soul, which are not karmic. But no less than 50% of all encounters take place because of past incarnations. Karma is not the law of “retribution”, but a just and impersonal, natural law. Most people believe that there are causes and effects on the physical plane, but do not believe that hurting other people would cause an effect on themselves. But every action, thought or emotion has an effect. The soul is the driving force of personal karma and its resolution. This means that as a soul we have decided to take on certain karma in a certain life, and other karma in another life, to be able to grow spiritually.
In theory every harmful action against somebody else starts a chain of unending karma. But this chain can be broken when you forgive the person who has hurt you. Then the karma stops. To forgive oneself is just as important, because the self and the other are - on a higher level- the same. So a full forgiveness is impossible without forgiving oneself. When you have resolved all your karma, it is important not to create new negative karma. This is possible by not hurting anyone physically, emotionally, psychologically, mentally or by doing nothing while action is needed to help someone. An Avatar (like the Christ) can sometimes mitigate the effect of some karma. But “God” (or a priest) cannot resolve our karma, because this would mean that it would go against the balancing effect to restore harmony in the universe. The Christian belief that the Christ died for the sins of the Christians (or that a priest can forgive your sins) is a fantasy and is also very dangerous for other people (victims), and self-misleading for the one who believes this. It gives people a free ticket to hurt others without seemingly to cause any effects on themselves. Also, if they really believe they can get away with this, - as the elite (or Cabal) believe (they believe that they are above the law and above God) - , they are in for a surprise.
Examples of karma
There is physical karma, "symbolical” karma, emotional karma, and so on. An example of physical karma: a professor who was born blind had been a member of a barbaric tribe in Persia in a former life, whose custom it was to blind its enemies with red-hot irons, and it had been his work to do the blinding. An example of “life-goal karma”: T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), who united the Arab tribes in the fight against the Turkish domination, - for Arab independence - , was a military strategist in the middle ages and died before fulfilling what he conceived unconsciously to be his incarnational purpose.
A young girl who was afraid of closed spaces died when the roof of a cave collapsed on her in a former life. (Most phobia have a karmic background.) In general there is more positive karma than negative, but as positive things are being viewed as “normal”, we give these less attention than negative situations which are of course more intense. An example of positive karma is a successful New York composer, who had served in a past life as a teacher of musical classes, was in another life a German woodcarver of musical instruments and before that was an Atlantean who went to Egypt and became a musician in a temple of worship. To be coarse or laugh at other people’s misery can also have great consequences. A woman who on the age of 36 was stricken by polio and spent the rest of her life in a wheel chair, had laughed at Christians who were crippled in the arena in Rome in the time of Nero.
Resolving karma faster in this time
Because the Earth and the human race are going to a higher frequency (from the third to the fourth density), time is accelerating, soul-inspired lessons are learned faster and karma is resolving quicker. The more advanced someone is (spiritually), the quicker the resolution of karma, meaning that you can almost wait for the effect after you have done something. Most people who are now dying will not reincarnate on this planet again. So if you think you have any unresolved business with a friend, a partner or a family member, now is the time to do something about it, to work it out and to forgive.
So, if we could reach a conclusion, it will be that we have only a vague idea what karma is, because we are involved in a soup or matrix of all kinds of karma at the same time, not knowing which is caused by what. All we know for certain is that we are creating new karma every second.

13.1. Reincarnation, Part One (02-11-2017)
Definition and principles
In the Collins Concise English Dictionary, we read: [Reincarnation is:] “The incarnation or embodiment of a soul in a new body after it has left the old one at physical death.” This about sums it up concerning what reincarnation means. But it leaves a lot of questions about the why and the how, and of course for the Dutch: whether it is true or not. In this article we can only scratch the surface, and the subject of “karma” can only be dealt with in Part Two. First, it is necessary to state a few universal principles or laws. 1. Consciousness is an activity of the soul, is eternal and is not the result of brain activity. 2. Not only humans reincarnate, but also animals, planets and solar systems. 3. A soul is a temporal “unit” of higher energy which is sparked by the Creator and is anchored on the higher mental, intuitional, monadic and spiritual level of a person (see the table as a PDF downloadlink under this article). 4. Humans can incarnate on Earth, but also on other planets. 5. The soul chooses to incarnate in the physical world and sets goals for itself to accomplish in a certain life. This is a kind of “self-sacrifice”: although life on the physical level is traumatic, growth is only possible in the physical world and not in the spiritual state between two lives. 6. People reincarnate in groups, and these groups have the purpose of progressing and advancing the civilization that they incarnate in.
The bigger picture and great cycles
There is “involution” and “evolution”. (The term “evolution” in this article has nothing to do with “Darwinian evolution”, which is incorrect, but with the evolution of consciousness - which is treated in Theosophy.) There are seven great stages of involution and evolution. During the first three stages spirit descends into matter. In the fourth stage there is a battle between spirit and matter (or “good” and “evil”), and after a while (a few million years), the spiritual attains mastery over matter and then slowly all matter ascends into pure spirit. (The term “ascension”, which is a much talked about subject since 2012, refers to a phase in this process.) Humanity has passed the deepest point of stage four, hence the chaos, battles and struggle we have seen the last thousands of years. There are 60 billion human souls in total, so only about 7,5 billion are now living in the flesh.
People are waking up fast since 2000, and we are now moving into a period of major changes, like the beginning of the Aquarian Age. We are also at the beginning of another 25.920-year cycle. And the solar system is now moving through a large “cloud” – bigger than the solar system – of a very high frequency, which pushes everything into a higher level. On top of that, a period of very strong solar flares is expected around 2028 – they have already begun with larger outbursts than usual -, and this will have a strong ascending effect on our consciousness. (“Solar Flare” is the subject of a future article). Finally, the Earth itself, as a living organism, is going into a higher phase.
Death and dying.
When people start to realize that only the physical body and the personality die and not the individual consciousness, the fear for death and dying will vanish. In the future, dying will be a conscious and social act, when we know that in a certain life we reached the end of our physical existence and that we have to move on. (I do not mean that we will then go to the Institute for Voluntary Euthanasia and get ourselves processed into Soylent Green wafers.1) At the moment of death, all major physical, emotional and lower mental experiences are “saved” in so called “permanent” atoms. These remain intact on a certain level until the moment of rebirth: the physical body is created around the permanent physical atom, and the other bodies (astral and mental) are created around the permanent astral and permanent mental atoms, during pregnancy. (Many people have moles or other birthmarks. It is likely that you were shot or wounded - in a former life -, on the spot where you now have a mole.)
When the silver cords of life energy, that are connected to the brain and the heart (actually to the three permanent atoms), are severed, we “die”. The physical matter decays and becomes “dust”. Etherical particles (from the etheric body) become part of the etheric energy of the planet, and the astral particles are dispersed into the general astral energy of the planet.
(This takes a little time, so it is advised to wait three days before cremation.)
The exact level of evolutionary growth is “saved” and is maintained until the moment of birth of the new body at reincarnation. So, we can develop ourselves from that (birth)moment on from the exact same level as it was during the moment of death of the former life. The whole purpose of reincarnation is growth. (Sometimes people do not know that they have died, for instance when they died while being unconscious or in a coma, as the result of a sudden accident, or when they are very sick and not fully conscious. Because the astral body is then still intact, they think that they are still living, but are not able to make contact with the living, which they do not understand. These beings are called “ghosts” and sometimes can be photographed. They have to be helped and guided by light workers, so that they understand that they are dead and have to go to the “light”. At the moment they do this, they disappear as ghosts.)
Growth, not endless suffering.
On this planet there are five “Initiations” possible, and when we reach the fifth, we have complete mastery over the physical, emotional and mental bodies, and also over all (known and unknown) physical laws, which means for instance that we can teleport ourselves to any place in the world in sec-
onds, live for hundreds of years in the same body (which will look like 40 years old), or walk on water - if we feel like it. (These people are called “Masters of Wisdom”, because they are master over these aspects.)This means of course we do not need to reincarnate again, although it is possible if we want to, to help other people who are still struggling. There are about one million people now who have the first initiation: they have control over the physical body (they do not have addictions anymore), are mostly vegetarians and often start practicing meditation. Most people who reach the fifth initiation go to a planet in the Sirius system, but some people remain here to help the people on Earth, like Jesus (6th Initiation), Maitreya (7th Initiation), and Buddha (8th Initiation). A few people who are now Masters are: Joan of Arc, Pythagoras and Francis Bacon - who became the Master Rakoczy in the
18th century and was known as the "Count of St. Germain" in Europe. (This does not mean that they reached the fifth initiation in that life, but in later lives.) The period between two lives in a physical body can last for two to three thousand years, but immediate reincarnation is also possible, even so that not one day is spend in the “after life”. The karmic laws that determine these periods are so complex that we would not understand them.
We do not remember our former lives because of several reasons. First, the brain of a baby is a blank slate, and second, when we would remember our last life, it is possible to bring the karma of that life into this life, and of course nobody wants extra karma, because we are already suffering plenty. Children often remember things of their last life between the age of two and four, and many parents tell them that these are “fantasies”, - or even worse: that they are lying. This is very frustrating and insulting for these children, because they know that they are right and are not making this up. (Because of these remarks, they might develop psychological trauma.) Another reason why it is important that we do not remember our last life, is that we could feel revengeful towards persons who did something negative to us, or who killed us in our last life. Children who remembered their last life and were confronted with people of that life, were often hateful towards the persons who had killed them. This takes us away from our new goals in our new life, and of course would create unwanted karma if we would actually do something to that person. Also, some people have reported during hypnosis, that they agreed with their guide, not to remember the last life.
Parents and gender
We choose our parents from the soul level during the period between two lives. Because we create more karma towards people we intimately interact with than with strangers, we are often born in the same family structure, sometimes being the son or daughter, then the mother, or the partner, etc. Also, we live lives of either gender, to experience both energies and viewpoints. After a series of lives as a man – or a woman -, we can become a woman – or a man -, and this can give stronger feminine – or male - traits in our character than usual. This can be a reason to become gay or lesbian. A more drastic decision can be to change the sex, as transgenders have done.
Planets, animals and the body
People can reincarnate on Earth, but can also come from other planets, and reincarnate here. For instance, Leonardo da Vinci came from Mercury and Shakespeare came from Jupiter. It is even possible to incarnate directly from the “source”, meaning that an incarnation is the first ever on a planet, as is the case with Inelia Benz. Since the human form is universal throughout the cosmos - 40% of all life forms in the universe are human or humanoid - , humans (from Earth) are not the only people in the universe (who can reincarnate on different planets).
Some people think that it is possible to incarnate as an animal, but this is a misinterpretation of something that Buddha said. Even the Dalai Lama thinks this. (It would be strange indeed if you would be the emperor of China in one life, and be squashed as a mosquito in the next life, or laying on someone’s hamburger, reincarnated as a cow and then killed.) This is because the expansion of consciousness can only go forward, and not backward. So, we need an ever more complex and fine-tuned biological organism to be able to grow spiritually. (That is why the body is called "The Temple of the Soul".)
(This is not to say that we never incarnate as an "animal-being". Only on this planet Earth animals are called "animals" - meaning lesser than humans. On all other planets these are just intelligent beings who do not consider themselves "animals" of course. For instance the cat-people on the planet Kaath are bipedal, not furry and very intelligent.)
This means also that it is detrimental (bad) for our spiritual growth to poison our body with toxic stuff like nicotine, alcohol, pesticides, chemical “medicinal” drugs, fluoride, meat/hormones/drugs, high frequency radiation (cell phones and Wi-Fi), vaccines, unfiltered tap water, mind-altering drugs, etc. Not many people realize this, although they know that these things are “unhealthy”.
Reincarnation and the Bible
Reincarnation was talked about by Jesus and the influential churchfather Origen (185-254) wrote about reincarnation, inspired by Plato. But the Emperor Justinian (483-565) had condemned the writings of Origen during the Fifth Ecumenical Congress of Constantinopel in 553 A.D. As a result, all passages about reincarnation were removed from the Bible. He was ordered to do this by his wife Theodora (508-547). She had enormous power and murdered two popes who were against her. She thought that she could become enlightened in one lifetime, without the need to reincarnate. 2 (A few passages were overlooked, as in John 9:2, where Jesus was asked whether a man, who was born blind, had sinned or his parents.)

12. The Assassination of Princess Diana (02-10-2017)
Twenty years ago Diana was killed in a tunnel in Paris. The main stream media are now repeating the same lies as in 1997, so it was time for this article. As with all killings, we must ask the usual questions: where, when, how, who and why. Some of these questions, like where, when and why, are not so difficult to answer. The other two, who and how, are more difficult, but enough information is available to get the whole picture.
When & where
Princess Diana, the driver Henri Paul, and Diana’s friend Dodi Al Fayed were killed on August 31, 1997, in the Alma tunnel in Paris in their Mercedes S280, when their car crashed into the 13th concrete pillar. Henri Paul and Dodi al Fayed were killed instantly, Diana died in the ambulance when she was transported to a hospital. The fourth passenger, the body guard Trevor Rees-Jones, was severely injured, but survived. Henri Paul worked for both the British and French intelligence and informed them minute to minute about the plans of Diana and Dodi. He did not know that he would be used as a patsy and end up dead.
Why and Who
There were different motives by several groups and persons to assassinate Diana.
1. The military industrial complex in the USA wanted her dead because of the enormous support she received from the public concerning her landmines campaign. She even persuaded Bill Clinton single handedly to sign a world-wide ban on the production and sale of landmines. (He refused to sign the treaty after she was killed.) Billions of dollars were at stake, and it included cluster bombs – one cluster bomb costs $ 25.000. Before her campaign the Red Cross received 50.000 pound, during the campaign it received 1.200.000 pound. 300 million landmines were placed world-wide, and another 300 million were stockpiled. In Angola, there were two landmines in the ground for every person.
2. Prince Charles wanted to marry Camilla Parker-Bowles and this was a crucial problem, because this was not allowed by the church of England: a possible future king was not allowed to marry another woman while his (ex)wife was still alive. Things have changed now, but in the 90s this would have meant a change of the constitution or in other words: England would have become a secular state, because of the disestablishment of the church. (When a Britsh monarch accedes to the Throne, by constitutional design he also assumes the office of Supreme Governor of the Church of England, so the government and the church are not so separate as it seems.) This has never happened before in England. A member of the Royal family should give the example, meaning not getting divorced and chasing other (also divorced) women while the ex was still alive. Diana knew that Charles wanted to kill her: she wrote a note saying: “My husband is planning an accident in my car, brake failure and serious head injury, in order to make the path clear for him to marry.”
MI5 wanted to solve this problem by killing Parker Bowles. They organized a “car accident” on 11-06-1997 in Wiltshire, using the “Boston Brakes Method”. Parker’s Mondeo crashed head on with a Volvo driven by Carolyn Melville Smith. Parker Bowles was unhurt and fled from the “accident” in terror because she thought that the MI5 was trying to kill her, which of course was true. After the failed attempt to kill Parker-Bowles, MI6 decided to kill Diana, because they thought that Diana was the cause of the problem, rather than Parker Bowles. Because the MI6 and the CIA are always working close together on the top level, the CIA got involved. (In the old days, secret services were trying to protect their countries against foreign threats, but they now just do the bidding of the Cabal, or some rich multinational.)
3. Prince Philip, a former Nazi, wanted Diana dead because the Royals did not want a Muslim to marry into the family. Another reason was that Diana was carrying a child from Dodi, a possible future king. A quote from an alleged CIA document: "Edinburgh [prince Phillip] sees serious threat to dynasty should relationship endure. Quote reported: "Such an affair is racially and morally repugnant and no son of a bedouin camel trader is fit for the mother of a future king." (Skolnick, 255). Another quote from the same CIA document: "US liaison to MI6 requested by David Spedding [MI6 director] for assistance in providing permanent solution to Dodi problem. Blessing of the Palace scured." (Emphasis added). (Skolnick, 255)
4. Diana was so popular that she would have received the support from the public for any humanitarian campaign. The elite saw her as a “loose cannon” on the world stage and wanted her dead, as was the case with JFK, John Lennon and others.
A serious problem for the Cabal, of which Diana was unaware of, was that George W.H. Bush, Cheney and Mitterrand were involved in illegal arms-for-oil deals in Angola, Rwanda and Congo-Brazzaville. Not only that, but England organized a civil war in Angola by arming the two opposing parties so that the British and the Americans could take over the oil fields and the gold and diamond mines. Because of the enormous media coverage Diana received, these scandals would certainly have been uncovered. Diana was killed only weeks after her last visit to Angola.
(Nevertheless, "between 1999 and 2011, the number of reported new landmine casualties had dropped by more than half, from 8,807 to 4,286", so her campaign had a great impact.) On top of that, Diana was planning to visit Bosnia and Palestine, so more illegal wars and illegal occupation of Palestine would have become headlines in the news. This surely would have become a disaster for England and the USA. And for Israel.
Although MI6 could carry out a D-Op (Deniable Operation) and could work hand-in-glove with the CIA, it would still be too risky because of some government oversight, so the actual killing was very likely carried out by a private company. The CIA has hundreds of journalists on its payroll, so many of the paparazzi in Paris on that day were CIA, MI6, or DGSE (French) agents. Of course the whole killing operation and the cover up would not have been possible without the help of (certain corrupt persons on the highest level) of the French justice- and police department, the French media, the French secret service (DGSE) and the French security service (DST), and some corrupt physicians and pathologists.
The method used by the kill-group was almost certainly the “Boston-Brakes Method”, so named because the CIA used this method for the first time in Boston. Some facts: a Mercedes S280 was stolen at gunpoint shortly before August 31, and was found without the computer chip. Only one Mercedes S280 was available in the garage of the Ritz hotel. The safety belt of the back-right passenger seat of this car did not function (it was jammed in the retracted position) – this was where Diana was sitting. According to the French police the brakes of the Mercedes did not function on the moment it entered the tunnel. There were no skid or tire marks in the tunnel. Five vehicles that were in the tunnel directly before and after the crash, were never traced. The French authorities refused to take on the offer by Mercedes to inspect the wrecked car, they even said that Mercedes could not make any statement.
There was one traffic camera with a complete view on the entrance of the Alma tunnel that “did not work” and about 10 private security cameras along the route from de Place de la Concorde to the Alma tunnel. Not one produced any images of the chase or the crash. The traffic camera did work 15 minutes before the crash, because a French woman received a speeding ticket after she passed the tunnel 15 minutes before.
The computer chip that was taken from the stolen Mercedes was manipulated – a micro transmitter was placed -, so that it was ready for the remote control of the Mercedes Diana was riding in. Together with the remote control, a bomb was used to disable the brakes, known within the secret service as a “Blockbuster Bomb”. Witnesses outside the Alma tunnel heard two “explosions”. The first must have disabled the brakes and the second must have been the crash itself.
The Mercedes Diana was in scraped the left side of a white Fiat Uno: this was the car from where the remote controlling would have been done. Directly behind was a black Mercedes with MI6 agents. Immediately after the crash a number of people were around the crashed car before the police, the normal paparazzi and ambulance personnel arrived. Diana was injured and suffered from an internal bleeding and a cardiac arrest, but she was alive, and her condition was “not catastrophic” according to the physician at the site. It took the ambulance 1 hour and 43 minutes to take her to a hospital just over 3 miles away, which was the hospital furthest away of the hospitals in this area. She was dead on arrival. In this hospital she was illegally embalmed by three English embalmers who travelled together with Prince Charles to Paris. The embalming made it impossible to find any toxics in the body or to do a pregnancy test.
It is time that journalists wake up, start doing their own research again and go on strike for a few weeks or months to make clear that they do not wish to participate anymore in the game of the elite.
Postscript: John Morgan, in his book "How They Murdered Princess Diana, the Shocking Truth", which contains 685 pages of very detailed information, has made it clear that Diana was passively and actively killed in the ambulance.

11. The Seven Rays (30-09-2017)
According to esoteric science there are seven great Rays or types of energy that create and influence everything in the universe. In our solar system one of these Great Rays is active: the second Ray of Love-Wisdom. This second Ray has seven subdivisions: the so-called “Seven Rays” that influence everything on our planet Earth: nature, mankind, the animal kingdom, plant life, the mineral kingdom, science, religions, nations, our character, our bodies, our mind, and so on. The seven stars of the Great Bear are the channels for this energies.
The activity of these Rays is cyclical: in a certain time period one Ray is more active than another. The seventh Ray of Ceremonial Law or Magic became active since 1675. The sixth Ray of Abstract Idealism or Devotion is gradually waning since 1925. The sixth Ray produced mystics, but also fanatic nationalism and dogmatism. But making things concrete, material, is difficult for sixth Ray people. The seventh Ray is the Ray of creating magic on the ground, and will be the major Ray of the Aquarian age. Mankind is destined to become creators, and this will happen in the Age of Aquarius. The war between the old ideals (6th Ray) and the new way of the magician (7th Ray), that is our current problem in the world. The positive ideals of the sixth Ray that have been developed in the past centuries can now be materialized on the physical plane. We the people have to do this. There will be no “salvation” or “rescuing” by higher beings or ET’s, although there is help.
These are the Seven Rays and their names:
1. The Ray of Will or Power
2. The Ray of Love-Wisdom
3. The Ray of Active Intelligence
4. The Ray of Harmony, Beauty or Art.
5. The Ray of Concrete Knowledge or Science.
6. The Ray of Abstract Idealism or Devotion.
7. The Ray of Ceremonial Law or Magic.
The soul of a person is always on the same ray through all incarnations. Each person has a main ray and a sub ray on the personality, the mental body, the astral body and the physical body. The characteristics of the Rays are:
Ray 1: power, vision, truth, leadership. Neg. : power to control others with evil intentions, hardness and arrogance.
Ray 2: wisdom, love, patience, endurance. Neg.: selfishness, suspicion, coldness.
Ray 3: broad views, clear intellect, abstract thinking, concentration. Neg.: impractical, critical.
Ray 4: sympathy, intuition, artistic, creative, sensitivity to colors. Neg.: worrying, self-centeredness, strong passions.
Ray 5: accuracy, common sense, independence, truthfulness. Neg.: harsh criticism, narrow minded, arrogant, unforgiveness, prejudice.
Ray 6: devotion, tenderness, idealism, sympathy. Neg.: self-deception, superstition, prejudice.
Ray 7: courage, self-reliance, creative, organizational talent. Neg.: poor judgement, formal, narrow minded, overstretching routine.
Countries are also under the influence of the Rays. This means that the whole people of a nation have certain character traits on the personality level and on the more spiritual or soul level. For instance Germany is on the First Ray (Power) on the personal level and on the Fourth Ray (Art) on the spiritual level. This means that personality of every German has the latent power of the first Ray of Will and Power, the effect of which we saw during World War II. The more evolved people in Germany are susceptive for the expression of art and/or are interested in art (4th Ray). Also, Berlin is considered to be the cultural capital city of Europe. The USA is on Ray 6 (Devotion) and Ray 2 (Love-Wisdom). Ray 6 on the personality level of the USA explains the devotion of the people to religions, the family and the American Flag. (Ray 2 of the soul level (Love-Wisdom) of the USA has yet to be developed.)
France is on Ray 5 (Science) and Ray 3 (Intelligence). The combination of Ray 5 (science) and Ray 3 (intelligence) in France gave great scientific discoveries but also arrogance. The Netherlands is on Ray 5 (Science) and Ray 7 (Ceremonial Law). In the Netherlands everyone is discussing things endlessly and they want to create an organization for every idea (Ray 7 on the personality level). The Dutch are also known for their common sense and narrow-mindedness (Ray 5). (Of all nations, the Dutch believe the least in reincarnation and it is the only country in the world where the classified UFO files have not yet been made public (if there are any). Of course, there are also famous Dutch discoveries, like the Kuiper Belt (Gerard Kuiper), International Law and the Law of the Freedom of the Seas (Hugo Grotius) and the microscope (Antonie van Leeuwenhoek).
Rays of some other countries are: Scandinavia: 2 – 3 (the first number is the personality Ray and the second is the soul Ray), 3, Ireland: 6 – 6, England (UK): 1 - 2, China: 3 - 1, Japan: 4 - 6, Brazil: 2 - 4, Canada: 1 - 2, Egypt: 7 - 1, Greece: 3 - 6, India: 4 - 1, Portugal: 7 - 6, Spain: 7 - 6, Switzerland: 3 - 2, Thailand: 6 - 7, Africa as a whole: 7 - 6, Asia as a whole: 4 - 6.
Because the second Ray of Love-Wisdom is the original main Ray of our solar system, love is the key here. Buddha (Wisdom) is on the second Ray and so is the Christ (Love). Many guru’s will say that love is the most important thing ever. This is because of the second Ray. If the third Ray would have been the major Ray of the solar system, they would say that intelligence was the most important thing.
There are so many kinds of energies coming to us, that it is impossible to say which energies have what effect. We receive energy from the sun, from other solar systems, from the planets in our solar system, from Gaia, the Logos of this planet (Sanat Kumara), astrological energies, lots of etheric and astral energies in the more immediate environment, not to mention the energies from our own unconscious and our soul. Nevertheless, it is possible to recognize certain characteristics in ourselves that correlate with the Seven Rays.
Humanity as a whole is on the fourth Ray of Harmony, also called the Ray of “Harmony Through Conflict”. The conflict part is easy to see, but it also means that that can be no harmony without struggle, growth, pain and conflict. So the future is more positive than many people think. The reason for this is also that major ages have come to an end, like the Age of Pisces and the Kali Yuga. We are now in the first phase of the Aquarian Age, the qualities of which are “freedom, equality, brotherhood and independence”. The fourth Ray is also the Ray of creativity and intuition. This means that we are on the way to become creators and to develop and use intuition. Intuition is a soul quality (see article no. 10) and many people have enhanced the contact with their soul to such a level that their intuition has become stronger.
So what can we do with this knowledge? We can study ourselves and work on our negative traits. We can study the Rays of the countries and be conscious of these effects when we are traveling or choose a country of our liking to go to. There is much more to say of course about the science of the Rays, as it is far more complex than it would appear to be, reading this article. So you can study the sources named at the end of this article if you like.

10. Intuition - "The really valuable thing is intuition." Albert Einstein (translation: 01-08-2017)
Einstein allegedly said: “Intuition is a gift of God, the ratio a servant, somewhere in time we began to worship the ratio and forgot the gift”.
What is intuition? In daily life the words “intuition” and “feeling” are being mixed up with one another and used in the same sentence as if these were the same things. Even scientists, teachers at schools for intuitive development, psychics and authors who write books on subjects related to intuition are confused and seem not to know the difference.
The four psychological types
The psychologist and scientist Carl Jung developed a system of psychological perception and character in which “intuition” is one of the four types. The other three types are: “thinking”, “feeling” and “sensing”. So Jung also thought that feeling and intuition are not the same functions. Every person has one of these four types dominant. The psychological type “intuition” is nevertheless not real intuition but a continuously functioning system of perception that is a combination of real intuition, thinking, feeling and fantasy (this is not what Jung said but I discovered this after two years of research). This is so because real intuition cannot exist all the time, 24/7 in people, because the frequency is too high. Real intuition manifests itself often as flashes of insight.
The table – which can be downloaded at the bottom of this article – could clarify a lot. The levels or fields of the “Cosmic Physical Plane” are: 1. the physical plane (including matter, fluids, gasses and ether), 2. the emotional plane, 3. the mental plane, 4. the intuitive plane, 5. the spiritual plane, 6. the Monadic plane and 7. the Divine plane. The emotional (feeling) plane is “lower” than the mental plane. But Intuition is higher than the mental. (“Lower” and “higher” meaning frequency, vibration.) So intuition is more pure or true than abstract or higher thinking.
Jung defined the types thinking and feeling as “rational”, and the types intuition and sensing as “irrational”. The concepts “rational” and “irrational” have a different meaning here than usually understood: the “rational” in Jung’s system is liable to thoughts, values, norms and judgements that were formed during the development of the human race. Meaning that judgements and thoughts are often not true, but rather possibly biased. “Irrational” in this system does not mean "illogical”, but it means that the irrational functions (intuition and sensing) are not liable to errors, (wrong) judgments, or wrong thinking. In other words, in plain language: thinking and feeling are subjective or judgemental, and intuition and sensing are objective or perceptional.
In western countries analytical thinking – a left brain activity - , is overrated and also suppressed in education. Feeling and intuition – right brain activities -, will become more important and in due time thinking will fall under the threshold of consciousness. Although pure perception is objective and non-judgemental, it is mostly coloured by our interpretation of it. In the end, it will lead most of the time to a subjective judgment. The art of perception – which is the most difficult thing to do according to Krishnamurti - , is to really see everything as it is, without evaluations, judgements, values, etc.
Pure or real intuition is always perceptional, objective, free of values, informative and never judgemental, evaluative, or subjective. Intuitive information often comes to us as flashes of insight from the intuitive level – or our soul. Some people see archetypal images and others receive the information as words – because the abstract intuitive information will be translated automatically in understandable sentences by the brain.
Intuition functions on a level which we could call the “collective super-consciousness”. On this level everything is connected, as the quantum physicists have discovered. Bailey: “It is the emergence into the consciousness of some truth or beauty never before sensed. It does not emerge from the subconscious, or from the stored up memory, racial or individual, but drops into the mind directly from the super conscious, or from the omniscient soul. It is immediately recognized as infallibly true and arouses no questioning.”
There are people who think that intuition comes from the unconscious, but this is a misunderstanding. Psychology has dealt almost exclusively with the unconscious, and rarely with the super conscious. Intuition comes from the super conscious of course. People who have studied the super conscious are – among others - Bergson, Keyserling, Assagioli, Jung, Taimni, Yogananda, Goswami, Sheldrake, Alice Bailey, Blavatsky, Steiner, Chris Griscom and Krishnamurti.
What intuition is not
Intuition is not a feeling, not instinct, telepathy, a psychic perception, precognition, premonition, emotion or ecstasy. Most psychics are clairvoyant on the emotional level, and on this level it is not infallible. (Clairvoyance on the mental level is very rare, not to mention clairvoyance on the intuitive level.) When dealing with predictions given by psychics we also have to take into account free will. A clairvoyant perception - on the emotional level - can be right on a given moment, but can be wrong only a few hours later because someone has done something which confuses everything in the chain of cause and
effect, so that the out-come will be different. Clairvoyance is most of the time innate whereas intuition can be developed during a life.
The famous scientist Rupert Sheldrake, who coined the term “morphogenetic fields”, has done research on the topic of telepathy: he invented an experiment in which people have to guess who is calling who, before answering the telephone, in a group of participants. Telepathy is the contact between minds. Telepathy works a lot better when the people involved have an emotional connection, like between mothers and children.
Intuition functions outside the time-space dimension
Because intuition functions outside the space-time dimension, it is possible to get information about the past and the future. The trick is that you have to go to the desired time first, with your intuition. During a broadcast about the choosing of the last two cities for the Olympic Games in 2012 on BBC radio, they said that in 45 minutes the winner would be announced in the same show. So I went to 2012 (it was 2008 or so), and scanned London and Paris. I saw new sport activities in London, so I knew that London would be the winner and after 45 minutes they said that London had been chosen. (First, I scanned London and Paris without going to 2012 and I did not receive any information, because in 2008 there was no new activity yet.) Because the information received was intuitive, it was right or true. If the information would have been received by a psychic, this would be not sure, because psychics can also receive thoughts from people who would like the Olympic Games to be held in Paris, and then the information would be wrong.
Inspiration and intuition are quite similar. We can receive inspiration from our soul, or from a higher intelligence - a higher being. It is a major task of a Master of Wisdom to inspire prominent men and women in the fields of science, philosophy, religion and art.

9. Zero Point Energy, Etheric Energy, Orgone, Chi, Prana, Tesla Waves, Radiant Energy, Morphogenetic Fields, etc. (12-07-2017)
Recognition of the existence of etheric energy in main stream science will lead to a greater breakthrough than any or all of the greatest discoveries, like electricity, the atom, the steam engine, photography, computers, etc. Tesla (the inventor of AC current, laser, radio, wireless electricity, free energy, beam weapons, etc., said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” And: “All attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the ether are futile and destined to oblivion….”
This article is about two main topics: 1. etheric energy and 2. the etheric body. Etheric energy is only slightly less dense than physical matter (including fluids and gasses), and not some mysterious “force”. There are seven levels of energy in the “cosmic physical plane”: 1. physical, 2. emotional or astral, 3. mental, 4. intuitional, 5. spiritual, 6. Monadic, 7. Divine. (“Monadic” is a Sanskrit name out of old Indian science and philosophy; there is no western name yet for this level.) Above this level we have also the cosmic astral, mental, intuitional etc. planes. Of course it would make no sense at all to describe these levels, because even the highest three levels of the cosmic physical plane – the spiritual, Monadic and Divine – cannot be experienced by most people, except for the highest forms of consciousness. (See also the table "seven levels" in the PDF above this article.)
Each of the seven planes has a subdivision of seven levels. These seven sublevels of the physical plane are: 1. concrete matter, 2. fluids, 3. gasses, 4. the fourth ether – or the super gaseous, 5. the third ether – or the super etheric, 6. the second ether – or the subatomic, 7. the first ether – or the atomic. This means that etheric energy belongs to the physical plane in this scheme. The differences between the four etheric levels are as great as the difference between concrete matter and fluids, - or the difference between fluids and gasses. Harold Aspden proved this: “Ether has to have different levels of density”. Because the fourth ether is rather “dense”, it can be photographed and filmed, and many children of the new age, - indigo children - , and psychics, can see it. Kirlian photography and the PIP scan - invented by Harry Oldfield - are examples of technology which can make etheric bodies or auras visible. It is said that in the future the eye of man will be changed so that everyone will be able to see etheric energy and etheric bodies.
Etheric energy is also known as Orgone (Wilhelm Reich), Aether (Harold Aspden), Chi or Qi (Chinese), Prana (Indian), Odic (Karl von Reichenbach), Munis (Paracelsus), Zero Point Energy (Hal Puthof), Radiant Energy or Tesla Waves (Nikola Tesla), Scalar Waves, Motor Force (John Keely), Animal Magnetism (Mesmer), Morphogenetic Fields (Rupert Sheldrake), The Field (Lynn McTaggert), Solar Ether Radiation (Korschelt), Psychotronic Energy (Czech science) or Mana (Polynesian Huna and the Kahuna on Hawaii). So it is very known throughout history and all over the world and it is extensively researched, in the west mainly by Keely, Reich and Tesla. What is the reason then the etheric energy is not part of main stream science? It is the same reason why the name Tesla cannot be found in history books: because the financial and industrial powers in the world have their own agenda. They do not want their financial power structure disrupted by free energy – so everyone is dependent on oil - . Also they have built all kinds of extremely advanced technologies based on etheric energy and/or scalar waves, in the realm of time travel, anti-gravity, mind control, spaceships that go faster than the speed of light, particle beam weapons, healing methods of all known diseases, body-to-body soul transfer, replicators (as they have in Star Trek), etc. The man in the street is completely ignorant of this and they like to keep it that way. There are for instance 5000 patents declared “classified – for reasons of “national security”- , because they do not want main stream science to develop these kinds of technology, especially free energy. Imagine: every person worldwide having his or her own device to create limitless and endless free energy for warming, cooling, lighting, travel and running any electrical device. Money, electricity and oil would loose their value completely within a few year’s time.
The scientific-minded readers could bring in the Michelson-Morley experiment and the Theory of Relativity by Einstein. The basis of the Michelson-Morley experiment however was that etheric energy is a fixed constant in space, meaning not moving. But etheric energy is moving along with the earth, as Harold Aspden has proven. Einstein said at first that the ether does not exist, but later he said that ether is a precondition for the existence of space-time. Einstein did solve all his problems using etheric energy, but these theories were declared classified.
Wilhelm Reich was arrested and killed in prison because of his discovery of Orgone. Scientists are already studying etheric energy without realizing it because atoms and electrons belong to the etheric levels. Atoms and electrons are always waves and not particles, because a “particle” means that it is concrete , dense material. Quantum physics says that everything is connected. This is possible through and via the etheric energy, which has a speed 1,5 times the speed of light. Since the source of everything is energy (or rather consciousness) and not matter, as Amit Goswami has proven, we can take it for granted that etheric energy is not the only “matrix” for the material world, but that this is only one of the last phases of creation before it materializes into concrete matter. Higher energies – like Divine, spiritual, Monadic, intuitive, mental and astral - , would come first, and then “lower” energies like etheric energy. Vera Stanley Alder actually saw the streaming of etheric energy between the planets when she was brought outside the solar system in her etheric body by a higher being. Planets, suns, solar systems, galaxies and the universe, have also an etheric “body”. This is why “empty space” between solar systems is not empty. When we realize that the radiation from these bodies, systems and space domains interacts with everything, including people, astrology seems not so weird anymore.
The etheric body
Other names for the etheric body are: the energy body, the fluid body, the Bioplasma body, the Beta body, the Kino Aka (by the Kahuna on Hawaii), the Counterpart Body, the subtle body, the pre-physical body or the double. The names “double” and “counterpart” indicate that the etheric body is an exact copy of the physical body. It permeates the physical body and protrudes from it for a few centimeters. The etheric body is the matrix of the physical body. That’s why the body “knows” where and how to grow limbs and organs, and this also explains “phantom pain” which people can experience whose leg or arm is amputated.
“Prana” is the life energy from the sun and the etheric body is the carrier of Prana. Prana is taken in between the shoulder blades and at the location of the etheric spleen, and is then distributed to all the organs and the blood. It is also taken in with the air we breathe. Nuclear and microwave radiation is very detrimental to the etheric body. If the exposure is long enough, it will have a destructive effect on the etheric body and then it is only a matter of time before concrete diseases will be revealed in the physical body.
The etheric body is also the link between the mind and the physical body: “the mind does not work directly on the brain” (Ostrander, 223). Acupuncture points are etheric centers of energy, which correspond to organs and functions. These points were made visible with Kirlian photography. “According to the Chinese, man's body has two kinds of energy: electrical and “vital”. The vital energy is not electricity but behaves similarly. Like electricity, it is polarized positive and negative.“ (Ostrander, 234.) The strength of the etheric body of people, animals and plants can be measured with the LM-4 Experimental Life Energy Meter (Heliognosis).

8. Microwave Radiation Intake is a Bad Habit (24-06-2017)
“Marlboro Cowboy” Eric Lawson, died of lung cancer in Jan. 2014. He was one of the five Marlboro Cowboys, who died of lung cancer. David Millar, one of the first Marlboro Cowboys, died in October 1987. Wayne McLaren died in 1992, after having smoked Marlboro cigarettes for 30 years. David McLean died in 1995. Richard Hammer, also a Marlboro Cowboy from the 70s, died in 1999. The first public warnings about the hazards of smoking were given in 1964 (we are talking here about tobacco which was soaked with ammonia, DDT, arsenic, benzene, polonium, etc., so not pure tobacco because pure tobacco does not cause lung cancer). In 1995, the first state-wide smoking ban was proclaimed in California. North Dakota followed in 2012. So it took resp. 31 and 48 years to protect people across the USA.
The first warnings concerning the dangers of microwave radiation were given in 1996, also in California. So it could take until 2027 to 2044 before laws are going to be passed in which the radiation of cell phones, cell phone towers, smart meters, microwave ovens and DECT telephones is regulated.
Since the beginning of the use of cell phones people are dying from brain tumours and Alzheimer. In the early days it was not known that high frequency (“microwave”) radiation was dangerous.
They knew that people could literary burn up if they would stand right in front of a radar installation, so it was advised not to do this. The official standard test to measure the safety of cell phones is nevertheless still the same: if a container with salt water, - symbolizing the body of a mariner -, is not getting warmer than 1 degree Celsius within 6 minutes, the cell phone is considered “safe”. (This is the “SAR” test.) Decades of research have led to at least 70.000 scientific studies which prove the dangers of microwave radiation to biological organisms. Here is a list of some of the diseases you can get: damage of DNA, damage of sperm, damage to the fetus, penetration of the blood-brain barrier, cancer, leukaemia, breast cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and other degenerative brain diseases, weakening of the immune system, sleep-disorders, memory loss, brain tumours, epileptic attacks, creating stress proteins, disruptive brain functioning visible on a EEG monitor, fear, cell damage, hyperactivity, eye-sight problems, tinnitus, depression, nervousness, allergies, chronic fatigue, blood pressure problems, concentration difficulties, behaviour problems in children and headaches.
A farmer who thought it would be harmless to install a cell phone tower on his property discovered that his cows would not eat very much and five calves were being born dead. Another farmer had calves that were born blind. After the tower was removed, the calves were being born prematurely because of permanent DNA damage. The DNA of female egg-cells can be damaged for generations when girls in schools are holding their laptops on their lap.
John Ryan from Tipperary, Ireland, could not sleep very well anymore after a tower was placed on his farmyard. The provider refused to break down the cell phone tower because ”the commercial interest was more important than his health”. Providers apply to regulations from the government. The governments listen to the WHO. In the WHO advice only thermic effects on salt water during 30 min. are taken into account, no long term effects on biological organisms. However, the WHO put microwave radiation on their list of possible causes of cancer. Governments are paid billions for broadcasting licenses by the providers and have to cooperate in enrolling the cell phone tower network. (Ex-top managers from KPN and Telfort said in a tv broadcast by Zembla that the telecom companies will demand repayment of 6 billion euros, when de government will take the problems caused by radiation serious.) They also have to protect the public’s health, but in this case they look the other way because “commercial interests are more important than the health of citizens”. (In the Netherlands this is actually made into law: it is forbidden to sue the government in cases where health is concerned.) But the governments KNOW, they can be convicted for murder in the first degree.
In the mean time people’s brains are being fried. The turning on of cell phones have also caused planes to crash because of creating malfunctions in the electronic system.One of the problems is that cell phone towers are emitting the maximum amount of power, in stead of the minimum amount. It is a fact that cell phones would work just as well on 1% of the power. So the power of the cell phone towers could be turned down for 99%. The Netherlands have the highest radiation standard in the world: 10.000.000 microwatt; this is 1000 times higher than in Austria. But there is also positive news. In France it is forbidden to use cell phones in schools. In French libraries Wi-Fi is forbidden. In many countries people would not want to buy a house near a cell phone tower, and existing houses near a cell phone tower have lost much of their value. Insurance policies no longer cover radiation-related risks. In the following countries cell phone towers can only be placed outside residential areas: Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Russia, China, Australia, New Zeeland and Israel, except in bigger cities. In Chilli citizens have the right to vote on the proposition of placing a tower in their neighbourhood. A man who could not sleep discovered that directly below his bedroom was a basement where 50 smart meters were installed (a smart meter emits as much radiation as 108 cell pones). After sending a letter to the provider accompanied with information about radiation risks, within two hours after they received his letter all smart meters were removed by the provider. So there is hope and it is not always necessary to saw though a tower, cut the cables or bulldoze the power installation at the bottom of a tower, as some guys have done in Brussels and Australia. Between 3% and 5% of all people are electro sensitive and once they have become sick they are not able to stand any more than one microwatt per square meter (a cell phone emits 1.000.000 microwatts on a distance of 30 cm). In Norway and Sweden electro sensitivity is recognized as an official handicap, meaning the government has to provide facilities for them.
The Raad van Europa (Council of Europe) published a report in May 2011 about the dangers of microwave radiation ("Resolution 1815"), in which it advised to remove all wireless technology from all class rooms in all of Europe.

7. Fear is the mind-killer (08-06-2017)
“Fear is the mind-killer” is the message Paul gives himself every time he faces great danger in “Dune”, one of the most famous SF novels, written by Frank Herbert. In the very beginning of the story he has to undergo a “fear” test. He has to put his hand into a black box and he is told that the box contains “pain”. If he withdraws his hand he will die. While his hand is in the box he experiences excruciating pain, but he can control himself and he passes the test. When he withdraws his hand he expects his hand to be black and all shirivelled up. But to his surprise his hand is completely healthy and normal. He thought that his hand would be damaged by some torture mechanism inside the box. But it was only a psychological test. In roughly the same way people are led to believe by the media that “terrorist” attacks can happen anywhere, any time. It is a fear programm. It is a psychological game. The elite do not want to give up their easy life, based on the Babylonian guilt money system and the oil based economy with the worthless petro-dollar. They are very afraid that people are waking up, demand change, freedom and peace. When people are afraid, they will not stand up for their rights and even ask more “protection” against the “terrorist threat”, so that they will give away their rights. But what is fear actually and how does it work?
Djwhal Khul, a Master who has the 5th Initiaton says that fear is the product of ignorance: “It is basically instinctual, and is found dominating in the non-mental animal kingdom, as well as in the human kingdom. But in the human, its power is increased potently through the powers of the mind, and through memory of past pain and grievance, and through anticipation of those we foresee, the power of fear is enormously aggravated by the thoughtform we ouselves have built of our own individual fears and phobias.”
“Fear is an illusion” say people who know all about fear. It is good to know this, but most fears will not go away with this knowledge. Many people fear hell and death, allthough the hell does not exist and death means only the death of the physical body, not of the individual consciousness. There are different kinds of fear. The fear to get hurt or die in a life threatening situation is instinctual; the consciousness of the body kicks in when you are about to fall in an abyss or when you see that a truck is going to crash your car. But fears that can give daily problems are fears that are about loosing your job or your life savings, getting old and senile, developing cancer, or minor fears like breaking your leg during a holiday or getting shot in Bolivia. But knowing this also does not help very much. The very real problem, which most people do not see, is that they will create the very situation they are afraid of, by visualising this and giving it energy. “Energy follows thought” is an old saying. The mental powers of people are getting stronger. According to Zoosh (an ET from the Explorer Race books). about 50 years ago there was one chance in a thousand that you would get struck by lightning if you thought: “I hope that I will not be struck by lightning”, walking outside during
a thunder storm (this belongs in the “do not think of a pink elephant”-category). Now this chance is one in ten. It is really true that we create things by thinking and visualising. It is rather easy now to not get the flue by visualising yourself healthy. Many people have cured themselves from AIDS visualising themselves healthy. So it is very important to get rid of fears. The last stumbling block could well be the fear to get rid of fear, to seriously tackle the problem. But it is a great joy to have conquered fear and live a happy life.
The second way to dissolve fear (besides knowledge) is going through the fear completely. If it is possible of course. It is not advisable to ask your boss to fire you in order to go throught the fear of losing your job. But if you are afraid to be alone you could live alone for a while or go on a journey by your self.
The third way to end fear(s) is a very effective one: to process it mentally and emotionally. Inelia Benz has given the world the “Fear Processing Exercise”: see www.ascension101.com or directly to https://ascension101.com/en/fear-processing-excercise.html. This is a audio exercise leading you through the fear: welcome it, seeing it clearly, making it bigger, processing it, thanking it en letting it go. Fear is a joint emotional-mental energy. (Psycho-)analysis does not help, it will only make it worse because you give it energy. Krishnamurti:
“I take many days or many years to analize myself. At the end I am still afraid. So analysis is not the way. Analysis is a form of escape. So it is not that one must be free from or resist fear but that one must understand the whole nature and structure of fear, understand it, that means; learn about it, watch it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it”
The fourth way to break with a fearful feeling in the solar plexus is to concentrate on your (Ajna) chakra between the brows: this rises the concsciousness immedeately to the mental level, away from the emotional level.
It must be said of course, that fear is also your friend. Because it makes you aware of any possible danger, so that you are able to do something about it, before it is too late.

6. Chemtrails I : An Introduction (28-05-2017)
The word “chemtrails” is a contraction of the words “chemicals” and “trails”. Meaning that the white trails in the sky sometimes consist of chemicals in stead of condensed hot air made by air planes. A natural trail is called a “contrail”, which is a contraction of “condensation” and “trail”: this is the condensation of hot air in a cold environment. A contrail will dissolve in a matter of seconds or minutes, just like air breathed out by a person on a cold winter day. Chemtrails can linger for hours on end, are often seen from horizon to horizon and are also getting wider in stead of smaller. Most of the time a grid of chemtrails can be seen, like parallel lines, lines at right angles, very often X-patterns, star patterns and sometimes we can see a trail in the form of a U-turn, like the pilot forgot his smart phone and turned around to the airport.
The people who are working at the weather forecast stations are forbidden to talk about chemtrails: they have been told that this is a matter of “national security”. The term “national security” refers to something which is secret, forbidden, out of the public domain. This is very strange of course, because the sky, the clouds, the rain, the temperature and sunshine are very much part of the public domain, not to say the most important part of the public domain. Senator Edward Kennedy (1977) said: “Should a democratic people cede to its government the full responsibility of determining when secret tests on unwitting subjects are necessary to protect the nation’s security?” 1
John F. Kennedy said this about secrecy: "The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.2
The official story is that chemtrails will reflect sunshine back into space, in order to fight global warming. (The truth is: chemtrails heat up the atmosphere and create droughts, like the drought in California that lasted for years). It started in 1958 when White House Advisor on weather modification said that the Defense Department was studying ways to manipulate charges “of earth and sky, and so effect the weather.”
Spraying began to take serious proportions when Project Cloverleaf was set into action (1990-2000). “Project Cloverleaf is a joint US-Canadian military Operation involving distributing chemicals into the atmosphere above Canada and the USA. Both US military refueling tankers and thousands of planes in private corporate aviation are used. Military & civilian aspects of project Cloverleaf are covert operations.” 3
The most sprayed particles are aluminum, strontium and barium. Because strontium and barium are also metals, this means that billions of metal particles are sprayed which then form layers of metal in large parts of the sky. The atmosphere can thus be electrified due to the conductive metals.
By using (Extreme) Low Frequency radiation, scalar waves, microwaves, radio waves, etc. it is possible to create a wide range of effects. To name a few: weather manipulation (creating floods, droughts, earth quakes (Haiti, 500.000 deaths), tsunami’s, storms, hurricanes, tornado’s), using weather manipulation in wars to weaken or kill the enemy, targeting individuals,
groups of people or whole nations with mind control technology (nano robots can be sprayed which will be inhaled by people) etc.), kill people or
make them sick (they are also spraying viruses and blood), "punishing" countries with earth quakes (Fukushima, 8000 deaths) etc. which do not fall in line with the US/Israel doctrines (since September 2001 they will also use “terrorist” attacks for this - like in Manchester), creating 3D holograms for real time imagery of battle fields on location, bringing down the electricity grid or internet in a certain area or world wide (the Cabal are able to create their own communications network that can run completely independent of the network which the public is using), or use this technology in combination with large antenna arrays (like HAARP) to blow up buildings like the Twin Towers, and even to alter the very fabric of space/time. (The scalar wave technology can be used to create weapons which are far more destructive than nuclear weapons. Tesla said that he could “split the earth in two” with this technology. Elena Freeland calls the whole of these activities the “Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth”. Mark Richards, a deep-insider in the secret space program, told Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot that chemtrails are used to poison people and to make them docile.
The first people who discovered that air plane trails were not the usual condensation trails, were World War II and Korean War veterans who were used to take a sharp look at the sky. They saw that skies over California were gridded with abnormal trails. When they contacted the local Air Force Base to ask what was going on they got the answer that there were “no flight plans” for that day. 4 What do you mean? There are not even any air planes in the sky! William Thomas named 15 nations from which reports of chemtrails were coming: Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden and the USA. Typically, these are the most populated countries. The large parts of Africa and Asia seem not to suffer from “global warming”.
Attempts to fight these illegal, criminal and dangerous activities by the UNESCO (1992 and 1999) and Dennis Kucinich (2001), were stonewalled by the Cabal.
Greenpeace denies the existence of chemtrails which is a sure sign that they are payed to shut up about this because even a superficial study will show that chemtrails are real.5
You can take the follwing pills: iron, Chlorella, Magnesium, Vit. B-Complex and Humus, like Fauna Mana. Iron because chemtrails destroys the iron in your body, Magnesium and Chlorella stick to the chemtrail metals so that these can be disposed of by the body. When walking under chemtrails: take extra Chlorella. Fauna Mana is a fine brown powder (from the humus-layer in the earth), mixed with different mushrooms. Fauna Mana also attracts the metals in the chemtrails inside the body, and it grounds radiation from radiation sources like cell phone towers.

5. Dogma's of Heartless Religionized Science (21-05-2017)
Rupert Sheldrake, author of “The Science Delusion” writes in his prologue: “Since the late 19th century, science has dominated and transformed the earth. It has touched everyone’s lives through technology and modern medicine. Its intellectual prestige is almost unchallenged. Its influence is greater than that on any other system of thought in all of human history. Although most of its power comes from its practical applications, it also has a strong intellectual appeal. “
The vision of modern science was at first that evolution is under the law of mechanical determism: “When the belief of determism was applied to the activity of the brain, it resulted in a denial of free will…” “This was not based on evidence but simply on the assumption that everything was fully determined by mathematical laws.” Michael Polanyi, in his masterpiece “Personal Knowledge”, has proven that science is subjective, using strictly scientific methods. The scientist thinks that he is objective, but this is an illusion, based on the idea that he himself, as a researcher, is outside of his field of study, and is therefore an objective observer. Quantum physics has taught us that this is not true, that the observer can have an effect on the things which are being observed. So, quantum physics changed the view into a belief that everything is a matter of chance, probabilities, and random change and growth. Modern science has become a faith in the unpredictability and purposeless of nature and the all powerful humans. This is, again, not based on evidence.
Physics dictates their “scientific” methods on every other science, including psychology: results should be repeatable in laboratory circumstances. What is studied are groups and classes: an individual woman, a tree or a disease, has no value in itself, it is only an example of a class- or group-characteristic. Abraham Maslow writes in his book The Psychology of Science: “It is anonymous, replaceable, not unique. It has no individual name and it is not in itself worth anything.” Science is an instrument that can be used by people with good intentions, or by criminals.
Rational thinking and modern science are believed to be objective and without value, but they are the products of the patriarchy, of male dominance, which oppresses female values. Female values, like wisdom, harmony, nature- based systems, holism, ethical values, etc. were thrown out of the window a long time ago. Modern science is “heartless” science. The unthinking masses have traded their belief in religion for a belief in heartless science. This has resulted in a number of dogma’s, named by Sheldrake: “The ten core beliefs that most scientist take for granted. These are:
1. Everything is essentially mechanic.
2. All matter is unconscious.
3. The total amount of matter and energy is always the same.
4. The laws of nature are fixed.
5. Nature is purposeless.
6. All biological inheritance is material.
7. Minds are inside heads and are nothing but the activities of the brain.
8. Memories are stored as material traces in brains and are wiped out at death.
9. Unexplained phenomena like telepathy are illusory.
10. Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that really works.
All of the above beliefs are of course B.S., as the scientists who work for the Cabal in their secret laboratories know very well. They have developed (among other things): time travel, teleportation, age-regression, limitless and free energy sources for travel and homes, and know that all diseases can be healed in a simple manner. But this is all kept away from the public by the power hungry and criminal elite. As a harmony of male and female energies is on its way and the Cabal are all but defeated, we will all see a major change in main stream science in the coming years and decades.

4. Andrew Basiago (21-02-2017)
Andrew Basiago was involved in teleportation and time travel experiments by his father, who had a senior position in highly secretive groups like DARPA and the CIA. He was teleported as a kid from New Jersey to New Mexico and back, dozens of times. He was one of a group of 140 children who were part of this program. Teleportation technology was developed by Nicola Tesla. After his death in 1943 (probably murdered), the CIA stole his papers and sent these to the laboratories in Los Alamos. There they built a machine from the blue prints made by Tesla which appeared to be a teleportation machine, (which they did not know in the beginning, but they quickly found out after a technician suddenly disappeared when he walked in front of the portal of the machine to get a screwdriver. After a few weeks he showed up again and told that he appeared in the middle of a small tribal village in Africa where the people thought that he was some kind of God).
At first they used marines, who volunteered for the research, but they all suffocated, because the tunnel of energy they had to step in – where a vacuum existed - was too long. After this, they used children, orphans, which they took of the streets in South American countries. After a while they discovered that it was also possible to travel in time, to the past and the future.
Later Andrew was part of a group of students and teleported to Mars, where he saw Barack Obama, who was also in the program as a student, standing on a cliff. According to David Wilcock there are now about 600.000 people living on Mars. (The CIA declared that there are one million people living on Mars, that is, under the surface.) Evidence for time travel exists in the form of a photograph which was taken by a local photographer when Andrew was an eight year old kid and was teleported to Gettysburg in 1863, on the moment that Abraham Lincoln was holding a speech for the public, called “Lincoln’s address”. He was teleported there from the year 1972.
An interesting aspect of his story is that the CIA could see, using time travel, who was president of the USA in a certain year. They saw that George Bush Jr. was “president” when he himself was only 19 or 20 years old and that Obama was president, when Obama in that time was only 25 years old.
So the Cabal could “train” (manipulate) them during all the years before they would take (or steal) the presidency.
His father said that he also saw that his son (Andrew) was president, but he did not mention the year. So Andrew does not know whether he will become president, but he is now campaigning for 2020. See http://andy2020.net/. His political proposals are far reaching: andy2020.net/proposals.
One of the methods of time travel was physical: you stepped into some kind of elevator and inside there was a tunnel of spiralling energy. Andrew experienced this as “time flashed past”. This was called “The Plasma Confinement Chamber”. Only the clothes he was wearing would remain intact, other things would get lost. He arrived in Gettysburg without shoes, on a cold day in November. This is another technology than we can see in the Star Trek tv series. In Star Trek the person is transformed into a bunch of atoms at one end and at the other end these are built up again to a physical body. If you would use such a technology, Andrew says, you would arrive dead at the other end. In the series Earth Final Conflict, also created by Gene Roddenberry, people jump through a portal, a kind of arc, into an energy tunnel, and this is more like Basiago saw and experienced.
In 1979 his father gave him a document which was a paper he would write in the year 2008 and was called “The Discovery of Life on Mars”. His father took this from the future and gave it to him with the statement that he should memorize this.
If and when Basiago becomes president of the USA, he will make public the teleportation technology, so that it can be used for the transportation of goods, in order to bring down global warming. Also, he will end chemtrails on his first day in office.
Basiago says that the Philadelphia Experiment (1943) - allegedly a project to make ships radar invisible - was actually a cover up for the real project, which was about teleportation and time travel. (The appearance of the ship The Eldridge in another location was not a side effect, but was the goal. Tesla boycotted these experiments because he knew that the strong energies were harmful to people - the sailors on the ships. That is why he had to be silenced.)

3. The Assemblage Point (15-01-2016)
Carlos Castaneda, the apprentice of the Yaqui magician Don Juan Matus, writes a lot about the “Assemblage Point” in many of his books, but specially in “The Fire From Within”.
The Assemblage Point, explains Don Juan, is kind of an energetic point or centre somewhere between the shoulder blades, on the surface of the etheric body of a person. (The etheric body permeates the physical body and protrudes one or more inches from the physical body.)
The exact position of the Assemblage Point is directly linked with one’s life vision, the whole of idea’s, concepts and beliefs of somebody, no matter whether they are rational or nonrational.
A child does not have a fixed Assemblage Point, it wanders around. Only because of adults who constantly talk to the child from their own belief system, the Assemblage Point is getting fixed at a certain age. But this would not happen if children would be surrounded by magicians or intuitive people who have an open mind. The most important goal for Castaneda was to move his Assemblage Point on his own, without the help of Don Juan or other magicians, and without the aid of mind altering drugs.
When you take Peyote or other mind altering plants, you could enter another dimension of consciousness, or what people would call “hallucinations”. Don Juan said that those visions are as real as the so called “normal” perception, it is only caused by another location of the Assemblage Point. When we dream, the Assemblage Point moves to another spot. The lateral movement of the Assemblage Point causes other visions, like the different visions people have.
The exact spot where the Assemblage Point is located, is completely arbitrary. So, the different opinions of people are all equally subjective and illusional. The more one is convinced by his or her opinion or belief, the more the Assemblage Point is fixed.
Women can move their Assemblage Point more easily than men and are also able to move their Assemblage Point to another spot and keep it fixed on the new location.
Women can also move their Assemblage Point and bounce straight back from it, while men linger dangerously in it. Actually, male magicians often live together with a band of 8 women, because they need the energy of women to be able to move their own Assemblage Point.
Locations of the Assemblage point to the left cause “spirituality”, religious feelings and dreams. Positions more to the right cause behavior like violence, killing and sensuality. The real challenge is to move the Assemblage Point to a deeper spot, meaning not laterally. This would give openings to whole other worlds, which is the goal of the new seers: to become free. The old seers counted seven of those worlds. The old seers also discovered that when dreams are consciously or semi-consciously manipulated, the Assemblage Point immediately returns to its usual place.
The ultimate test for apprentices was to jump into an abyss from a cliff while in the normal waking consciousness, and move their Assemblage Point during the fall, so that they would not hit the bottom and die. A downshift of the Assemblage Point can alter oneself in an animal. Once a crow flew by, and Don Juan said: “That is La Gorda”. Plants and trees have their Assemblage Point on the lower part of their etheric body, while people have it on the upper part.
The interesting part of all this is that magicians can see the position of the Assemblage Point in other people (and plants and animals), and are also able to see what they experience.

Note: the Assemblage Point is discovered in science and is used in therapy.

2. Spiritual Feminism or: Why Women Are Stronger Than Men and What They Have to Do To Take Back Their Power
We've had social and personal feminism in two waves: during the end of the 19th century and in the sixties, to a certain extent, in industrialized countries. Now is the time for spiritual feminism. The patriarchy on this planet took hold about 13.000 years ago, with the agreement of women. They agreed to give away their power because they thought it was the best thing to do at that time.1) At the end of the 20th century the dominant energy in the world became female again (see Drunvalo Melchizedek: The Mayan Ourobouros, The Cosmic Cycle Come Full Circle, The True Positive Mayan Prophecy is revealed). Although this is not yet very visible in the external world.
The coming 13.000 years the world is going to be more feminine: more understanding, flexible, wise, spiritual, loving and forgiving. The male characteristics like killing, violence, oppression, fear production and manipulation have to go. Men appear strong with these kinds of behavior, but that is really only on the outside: they are not really powerful. But women are. Theosophy teaches us that there are no female Masters of Wisdom. This is not surprising, in view of the male dominance of the last 13.000 years. "But it is much easier for women to become enlightened than it is for men. A woman's subtle body accepts light much more readily than does a man's."2) So what are the reasons that there are no female Masters of Wisdom and very few enlightened women? (One is "enlightened" at the 3rd Initiation, and a "Master" at the 5th Initiation.) The main reason is that women have embodied the conventional roles that men want them to have: the weak woman who is dependent on her man and the mother who makes and cares for the children: the "Dependent Wife" and the "Caring Mother".
"The woman's essence is power, her subtle body is much more powerful than that of a man."3) This is at the same time the biggest problem for a woman. She is exposed to all kinds of destructive energies; psychological, emotional, mental, electromagnetic, and so on.
When a woman has a relationship with a dominant, manipulative, aggressive or fearful man, she is taking all those negative energies into her different bodies. "Women allow this to happen. They foster an image of being weaker. They want to take care of to an extent. They want a daddy. They want someone to make decisions for them. They don't want to claim their own power and intensity.They choose attachment to the family in stead of the pursuit of enlightenment. And women don’t support other women. They're jealous, vindictive, simply because they don't realize that they have enough power within themselves. If they did, they could enjoy other women."4) Women supporting other women, that can be very powerful!
Also, women think that they have to be nice. Now I'm not a supporter of the idea that women should start spitting, cursing and fighting. There are lots of ways to stand in your power as a woman, which are more subtle. And I also don't mean manipulating men: this is another negative trait that women are used to in the patriarchy, that has to be abandoned. Women have to use their energy on more positive things. You can't become enlightened and at the same time manipulate men.
Millions of people nowadays are waking up. They see through the systems that were/are in place for ages; religious, political, educational, military, and the media supporting all this. But when awakened, it is relatively easy to stay dependent of men and stay in the mother role, and so not take back your power. "The way we see men and women outwardly, the way they act in society is not the way they really are inwardly. Everything in this age is reversed, and that's why not that many people in this world attain enlightenment. The age of women however, is just around the corner"5)

1. "Global Currency Reset" (07-07-2015)
Global Currency Reset means: replacing all the money in all countries with money which is based on gold. Except the worthless “dollars” of the Federal Reserve Bank (which are actually called “Federal Reserve Notes” in stead of bank notes). In this article I will give a summary of an interview with Karen Hudes, Senior Council of the World Bank in Washington.
Why should all existing money be replaced? Because the financial world, the economy, is corrupt. Of course we know this already, but Karen Hudes gives the details and the overall outlines. The financial world has been corrupt for so long that nobody knows how things were when it was not corrupt. It goes back to 20.000 B.C. according to Hudes.
To begin with, the bankers have all the power and also own the main stream media. That’s why we only hear lies, the things that the Cabal want us to believe to keep us under control. The Federal Reserve Bank plays a major role in this system. The Federal Reserve Bank, - or the Fed -, is not a state-owned bank, but a private bank. They print money out of thin air when they feel like it. It is based on nothing of any value. Richard Nixon abandoned the gold standard, because there was too little money around to pay for the Vietnam war.
The BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and the G77 countries (the developing countries) do not accept dollars any more because they have become practically worthless. The reason why the dollar is still a strong currency, is that it is based on oil (that is why it is called the “petro-dollar”). The USA will wage war on any country which has oil and does not want to receive dollars, - as we have seen with Iraq, after Saddam Hussein said in 1989 that he did not want dollars any more for his oil -. This concerns 25% of all world trade. The Arabic countries have also said that they do not want dollars any more. The military in the USA are behind the Global Currency Reset because the soldiers want to be paid with money that has value, and not with worthless paper.
Apart from this there appears to exist an enormous amount of gold, which has been put away for humanity. The total world gold supply is more than 10 times as much as is been told to the public.
There is a lot of gold which has been rescued from the Vatican by ex-president Marcos of the Philippines, and this lies in a safe place and cannot be reached or stolen by the corrupt banks.
There are also gold supplies in Japan and on Hawai. (Hiroshima and Nagasaki were nuked because the Japanese refused to tell the Americans where their gold was hidden.)
The Board of Governors of the IMF and the World Bank, - not to be confused with the directors of those banks -, which are backed by the ministers of finance of 188 countries, will see to it that the Global Currency Reset will take place. The chance that this will happen, is 90% tot 95%. (This estimate is based on a computer program used by the military, called the “Power Transition Model”.)
All countries are offered a part of this gold supply, on the condition that they print new money based on this gold. Except the Federal Reserve, because it is necessary that they will go bankrupt, or else we will have war. This can be arranged rather smoothly.
The Fed is part of the “Network of Global Corporate Control”. This network controls 43.000 companies which are active on the capital market. The have placed people on the boards of all these companies, so it is actually one big corporation. They receive 60% of the profit of these companies and also have taken over all the main stream media companies. They have ten times as much power as they should have, on the economy of the world. They do not tell the people that the income tax of the US citizens
is going straight to a bank in London, and from there to the Vatican.
