Coronavirus Fragments 2: All Eyes on the Pacific

One of the less-reported aspects of the coronavirus epidemic is the ramping up of US Navy manoeuvres in the South China Sea. For years, the Chinese have been dominating the South China Sea, to the consternation of other countries.

The sandbars, along with swarmings of Chinese vessels in foreign waters, and the construction of hundreds of Chinese airports, have all recently alarmed many countries, even raising eyebrows in Australia and New Zealand. In 2019, Clive Palmer's United Australia Party ran a scare ad about a Chinese private airport, built in Karratha, West Australia, which seemingly has clandestine military capability. This ad was attacked by the UAP's political opponents as fear-mongering.

Pandemic Chats in the Darkness 1: The Black Swan Event


The Underground thinks the WHO is a subsidiary of the CCP. Image Source: 4chan. Click to enlarge.

To hear some people talk, we are already in World War III and do not know it. There are discussions online about the coronavirus which are far more extreme than MSM reports. I will release some of this information here in a series, since they are evolving into different narratives.

Beware the Biased, Unsourced Source

The source in this post is 4chan, which is racist, dubious, disreputable and censored for many reasons. They are politically aligned against the WHO, as you can see from the image above. They do not believe WHO reports. They have a definite bias.

However, 4chan is also known as a place where mainstream people sometimes come to release actual leaks. It is assumed that 4chan is chosen because the members of the Internet's alt-media monitor it and disseminate supposed leaks as a kind of under-narrative. The site's bad reputation as a source enables anonymity and plausible deniability for any leaker. Anything stated there can all be dismissed as LARPing, shitposting, and rubbish.

In between the seventeen-year-olds trading Nazi cartoon frog memes and nude vaginal photos, an occasional thread with real meat will appear. In January and February 2020, the site has featured leaks from people who claim to be working in Chinese hospitals and in American and UK disease control organizations. They are alarmed. Or they appear to be.

Black Swan Event

Image Source: Forbes.

The first fragment (collected in one image, below) is supposedly from a leaker from the UK Department of Disease Control (DDC). The person's posts describe the virus as a bioweapon. For what it is worth, I could not see any British-specific or American-specific spelling in the person's posts.
  • Heavily modified "chimera" strain of flu
  • "It produces rapid death while hiding behind a usually-harmless flu-type infection."
  • "I don't know what the US military might know."
  • It will cause an economic Black Swan event.
  • Not developed in Wuhan - it comes from another lab, "elsewhere." 
  • "Developed by China as a possible WMD."
  • The Wuhan quarantine is real, but there are other quarantined epicentre cities which China is not revealing.
  • The virus is excreted through sweat - you can catch it by touching the skin of infected people.
  • It spreads through air, blood, food, water. IE food in grocery stores can be contaminated.
  • The illness caused by the virus presents in stages: (1) asymptomatic; (2) flu-like stage that heals up and makes the patient think they have recovered; (3) then it hits the brain: "then it's, well, whatever the fuck this is deep down"
  • "The lungs secrete blood when infected fully." It causes the bronchi to rupture, so that infected people cough up blood, infecting anyone who tries to assist them.
  • There are vaccines which can be administered before or during the flu stage.
  • Death rate 70%-85%
  • "We don't know exactly how it got out ... we do not think this was done intentionally."
  • "At the highest level close-door discussions of international disease control, the only theories about this outbreak so far is what will exist after it."
  • "Expect pics of dead people on social media soon. Cities."

UK DDC purported leak (23 January 2020). Click to enlarge. Image Source: 4chan.

One anon asked, "How likely is it what you have is just flu and not this high-tech disasterpiece." The leaker did not say. But if this information is true, you may have flu and recover. But you will not know whether you had a normal flu until a week or weeks later, when either nothing happens - or the final stage of novel coronavirus will return.

Warnings against Reading Weaponized Disinformation

My posting of this information does not constitute my belief in this information, nor my desire to spread fear. This 'Pandemic Chats' series is published here to make people aware of the scope of discussion. I do not know whether this is a milestone in the history of real bioweapons in public health or a milestone in the evolution of weaponized online propaganda. Or both.

There are good reasons why you should read this information with extreme caution and discernment. It is possible that the virus is a bioweapon or it may have arisen naturally. Either way, the Chinese government may perceive this outbreak as a bio-weaponized attack.

As such, the coronavirus epidemic might invite Chinese revenge. That retribution may come first in the form of a wave of Internet disinformation warfare, intended to spread panic and violence.

Read this information at your own risk. Treat it as a toxic waste neo-cultural cyber-event. Examine it with the sober reserve of an anthropologist. Coronavirus rumours may be an extreme new type of online propaganda. Do not presume the information is true.

But also understand that if these are real leakers and they are telling the truth to the Internet Underground to relieve their consciences, then the world is now a different place. 

I cannot assess the veracity, sources or accuracy of this (dis)information. Some of these fragments and citations refer to legitimate medical publications, which you can read, if you have time. If the rumours are true, you don't have time.

China's Red Pill Moment


Cello lament for a pandemic: Deep Cello Meditation Music: Dark Meditation Music, Relaxing Music, Dark Cello Music for Relaxation (28 February 2018). Video Source: Youtube.

Perhaps it is this blog's subject matter, but a week does not go by without me receiving recruitment messages from the so-called Illuminati. Some notes are sophisticated overtures, some are more like Nigerian scams. The Nigerians are the new Illuminati? I know an illustrious Nigerian who would find that amusing. Here is today's recruitment message:
"Join the Illuminate cult online today and get instant sum of 666,000 dollars with a free home any where you choose to live in the world and also get 66,000 dollars monthly as a salary… If you are interested please kindly fill the following information to this email below {markgabriel666m@gmail.com).

Illuminati recruitment spam is pretty common now. A 2017 VICE investigation found that these scams also hail from Nigeria, so I guess the original Nigerian scammers rebranded themselves. Maybe they read my blog posts on the side, while scamming people around the world for money.

Ane Brun - Big in Japan (26 June 2012). Video Source: Youtube.

The Illuminati are the bogeymen who pop up before real horror unfolds. The coronavirus news leaves me with a mournful sense of inevitable change and unfolding disaster. If the virus was bio-engineered, it was a fatal stroke - which will hammer China as well as other Asian countries. It will not go without retribution.

To speculate wildly, perhaps the western press have strongly denied the bioweapon story for a reason. This conspiracy theory is dismissed in shrill terms as fake news and disinformation: the theory runs that the virus was built in Canada and smuggled by Chinese spies to Wuhan. There is inconclusive, very preliminary research which suggests that Asian males are susceptible to the virus.

Is it true? Perhaps the Chinese intended to reverse engineer this virus and develop a vaccine against it. Some conspiracists wonder if the Wuhan outbreak was a vaccine experiment gone wrong, and researchers accidentally unleashed upon their own people the very bioweapon which they were trying to decode and neutralize. Again, this is 100 per cent my baseless speculation. It is not intended to hurt or offend anyone; it is expressed with total sympathy for the troubled Chinese and all others who are battling this crisis. I am merely attempting to imagine what could have unfolded behind the curtains, smoke, and mirrors, so that we may all have a clue and a chance to survive.

Who knows what kind of double or triple loyalties were at work as China sought to recruit western researchers in its Thousand Talents Plan? Perhaps in their eagerness to compete and win at all costs on the global stage, the Chinese became blinded as they began to pull ahead of the pack. Maybe they underestimated the ruthlessness and loyalties of the western scientists they recruited and used. Did they invite a Trojan Horse into their own laboratories?

This may be the grim truth behind liberal globalism, with its open borders and free trade. Underestimate the globalists at your peril. They are not racists. They love freedom and openness, but they are fiercely competitive and they have a larger sense of final social architecture. It seems laughably easy to exploit their vast philanthropic network of round tables, consensuses, and concept-based friendship. Theirs is a glitzy, gushy world of honeypots, perquisites, and high-flying opportunities.

Did the Chinese really think they could surge ahead in this western liberal environment, unimpeded, and carve out an international empire, with no strings attached, and no roadblocks at the end of the day? Beneath its permissibility and high-minded rhetoric about civil society, globalist liberalism gives its competitors enough rope to hang themselves; no one sees the traps until it is too late. Everything is executed behind a smokescreen of plausible deniability. Cherished and celebrated, serious competitors will never know what hit them, except that somehow, victory is no longer within their grasp. The dream dematerializes in the strangest way. It dissolves as though it was never really there.

Whether these bizarre strategies lurk behind the pandemic or not, this virus is a hammer stroke which will hit all Asian economies, and soon non-Asian economies too. The Asian boom of the mid-2000s and 2010s is brutally, horrendously coming to an end. Fukushima was bad. The Gangnam Style era is done. What Belt and Road initiative? Say goodbye to the super rich children of Singapore. They will be swept away. The party is over. This is a heart-breaking space of awful outputs, because the dawn of Asian development and prosperity may now be irretrievably damaged. And with the demise of Asia, we will all suffer, every last one of us.

China Will Catch a Cold



Conspiracy theories have spread alongside this epidemic, with theorists convinced that the virus was created by Illuminati design, and will be followed by World War III, launched against Iran. The source in the video below is a speaker, Bill Ryan, from Project Camelot and Project Avalon. These projects constitute an anti-Tavistock-Institute conspiracists' hotbed, which sees itself as a British New Age spiritual bastion arrayed against the Illuminati and its supposed Fourth Reich Nazi-esque cabal. Project Camelot supported the possibly-murdered conspiracy theorist, Max Spiers (1976-2016).

Project Camelot rumours circulate about Masonic plans, hatched in 2005 in the City of London, to depopulate China by using a flu-like virus. China Will Catch a Cold! (5 February 2020). Video Source: Youtube. The full video is here.

This chatter has gained a lot of traction on Chinese social media, because the Chinese believe this virus was a western bioweapon, which was deliberately aimed at their nation. In the Project Camelot account, there will be retaliation, as the Chinese unleash their own bioweapon on the rest of the world, or perhaps the virus simply mutates. The rumour runs: "And then the real war starts ... with a much more major nuclear exchange."

We live in a nascent global technocracy, where science and tech are king. It is a bit outdated to imagine that the usual cavalcade of European characters - Zionists, Freemasons, Bismarckian politicians, Jesuits, and the Bavarian Illuminati - are pulling the strings to create a New World Order. Indeed, that may be the very function of outfits like Project Camelot - to create a grand smokescreen of New Age disinformation about the existence and continuing power of Illuminati grand masters.

I cannot say, but to return to grounded consideration, it is not outside the realm of ugly possibility that science and tech are progressing very quickly, without regulation at the highest levels, and that the riches and power thus gained invite extreme, world-level players everywhere, who are interested in the greatest stakes and profits. The coronavirus may be part of that chess game.

Virus Shockwaves


As for the virus, a lot of details remain unclear. Why are the Chinese spraying their streets with chemical foggers? What is the mist being sprayed on passengers in Indonesia? Business Insider identified it only as "a substance." The tanks are labeled "ALKOHOL." Some say it is a germicide or cholorphenol. There are fears that the virus may become communicable by mosquitoes or house pets.








Unconfirmed: The Sun reported via AsiaWire that panicked Chinese pet owners threw their pets out of high rises because they thought that their pets could catch the coronavirus and would be killed anyway by the government. Pets Are Thrown Out Apartments Buildings By Owners In Fear Of Wuhan Virus. (1 February 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

The true source of the virus, and thus the spread, mortality rates, and species which are vulnerable to this virus, are unclear. It does not help that China suppressed a lot of information, and authorities elsewhere are also doing so, while the MSM papers over the rest, and citizen journalists on the ground are censored. The virus has not necessarily run its full course yet, even among the initially infected, or at least among the initially infected who could be monitored by external health authorities other than the Chinese government.


Based on Chinese numbers, the infection rates among hospital staff are catastrophic. However, those assessments do not account for the fact that Chinese numbers of infected and dead are likely artificially lowered. The latest German research states that the virus can survive on a surface for nine days and there are comments linking the source of the virus to the pangolin.



China's Red Pill Moment


The management of the pandemic is becoming China's Red Pill moment which will test the authority of the CCP. The coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, a city of 11 million, had the same energetic impact as if an atomic bomb had dropped there. Not everyone grasps this because it was not an act of conventional war. The impact is obscured by cautious MSM reports and muted WHO statements. But the shock waves from the epicentre are nevertheless rolling out beyond China's borders. A deluge of sickness, truth, and political awakening is coming.


"Every Chinese must have a conscience. You are not their dog [slave]." Can you see and share for Wuhan Citizens and people who are fighting.. (7 February 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

Two Weeks

It has hardly been two months since Chinese authorities knew about the virus. It has barely been two weeks since the coronavirus came to global public notice. At first, the city of Wuhan was locked down, followed by other cities. But then, diplomats flew the ex-pats out, and more draconian measures were implemented.

It shows how innocent and naïve we were in late January, given that we watched the livecam of Wuhan's new hospital being built and did not understand what it really was. The unveiling of China's fast hospitals indicates that the CCP government knew and knows how catastrophic the situation is, and what it must do to try to contain this virus.


Unfortunately, it looks as though the CCP is also using this epidemic as an excuse to settle scores or crush political opposition. The MSM, as usual, provide anodyne analyses which don't really explain what is happening. They present this outcome as an abstract question of public health versus liberty and civil rights.


What is clear on the ground is that men, with their identities obscured by HAZMAT suits, are suddenly seizing people off the streets, out of their homes, and out of their cars, under the guise of protecting public health. They are starting to look like death squads and their quarantine centres smack of death halls. Life becomes death: reversals in meaning are a marker of extreme authoritarianism.


It took one fortnight for the Chinese government to build locked quarantine death halls, labeled as hospitals. The government passed a new law, which states that even if you feel healthy, but have had any contact with someone diagnosed as infected, you must go into quarantine. If you resist, you will be arrested and taken to the quarantine centre by force. The hall is guarded by the army and has no medical staff, no sinks or baths for personal washing, and a toilet in an outer courtyard. With these facilities and a new quarantine law in place, the government began 'disappearing' people off the streets with little white vans. Doors to apartment buildings are also being welded shut by authorities, with all the inhabitants left trapped inside.



Again, to consider what could happen outside of China, understand that it took two weeks to reach this point inside China. This is not just the moment where the Chinese Communist Party drops its mask. This is China's Red Pill moment. It should be everyone's Red Pill moment.



The fate of Wuhan's citizen journalist and lawyer Chen Qiushi is being discussed on Chinese social media and on Twitter. Chen has disappeared and been quarantined. Today, his friend and fellow citizen journalist Fang Bin revealed what he knows. A commenter under a Youtube video about the situation remarked: "Only in lies can you live peacefully and die happily." ["王娜 中国人知道真相会恐慌?你是在讽刺中国对吧,只有在谎言里才活得安详,死得愉快。"] And so it is that only in truth can you survive, albeit unhappily.

World War III Projections 4: New Year, New Decade, New Disinformation



New years countdown in LONDON 2020 (31 December 2019). Video Source: Youtube.

Happy New Year, Happy New Decade. In a previous post, I dubbed the 2010s, a 'decade of disillusionment,' because those years drew new political lines. Those lines no longer delineate the outmoded left from the outdated right, but instead divide those who are awake from those who are still asleep.

When I say awake and asleep, I do not mean this as conspiracy theorists would, who constantly nurse anti-Semitic paranoia about who 'really rules the world.' Nor do I refer to the 'woke' protest culture. Such perspectives are distorted extensions of archaic left and right political paradigms.

Rather, I was referring to the development of an enhanced sensibility, induced partly by overexposure to information and disinformation, and partly by technologically-induced shifts in the way we live, which force reappraisal of one's whole experience of reality.

In short, reappraise experience and we will reappraise reality. That development, in conjunction with technological advancement, forms the core of the new politics. The moral challenge is to harness technology without becoming enslaved by it. Mechanical invention, innovation, and engineering are secondary to conscience, creativity, and ideas.

The real battle lies in the cultivation of sound public judgement over information. As the old authorities over information lose ground and the new tech giants seek to censor the narrative of progress, we struggle to discern what information is valuable and ultimately beneficial, even if we can no longer distinguish truth from fiction. Can we retain our moral compasses in the process?

Intermediate Range



Yesterday, the US Department of Defense tested a 500 km+ cruise missile in California (click the above image to play video). According to Defense One, this marks the end of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty (signed 1987) and the beginning of a cruise missile arms race, with the United States eyeing China and Russia:
"'China poses a much larger and more sophisticated long-term military threat than Russia,' says Elbridge Colby, director of the defense program at the Center for a New American Security. 'Washington would benefit from having the ability to deploy survivable land-based ballistic and cruise missile systems.'

Colby and others cite China’s growing missile arsenal, most of which is conventional and falls within ranges covered by the INF Treaty. 'The fact that Beijing has such missiles,' writes Marc Thiessen, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, 'puts the United States at a strategic disadvantage in any conflict with Beijing…our only possible response would be to strike China with intercontinental ballistic missiles—an unacceptable escalation.'

Their solution: toss out the INF Treaty, develop an American arsenal of ground-launched intermediate-range missiles, and deploy them to allied territory in the western Pacific. This highly visible and survivable strike option would deter China, they argue, or provide the needed flexibility to hit targets in mainland China should conflict erupt (most likely over Taiwan)."

Kiwi Boltholes


Hunting the One Percent’s Doomsday Bunkers in New Zealand (4 May 2019). Video Source: Youtube.

VICE has just published a report in which journalist Baz MacDonald tried to locate billionaires' boltholes in Queenstown, New Zealand. As part of his research, MacDonald interviewed Gary Lynch, General Manager of the Rising S Company, a Texas-based bunker manufacturer. A rival business's gossip about Rising S (here) suggests that the Rising S CEO has a criminal past and FBI connections. Rising S underground bunker layouts and prices are here.

The VICE story focuses on the One Per Cent's interest in Kiwi boltholes and emphasizes growing economic inequality. However, there is a political nuance here.  In 2012, preppers were mainly Tea Party grassroots libertarians and conservatives. Now, with Donald Trump in office, bunker buyers are billionaire liberals. See my related posts, WTSHTFSit Out the Apocalypse in Style, and  Kim Dotcom's Scary Tweets.

World War III Projections 3: Venezuela, The First Caribbean Domino?



Today, Venezuela's government is being forced to change through a strange internal and external consensus. While the anti-Maduro parts of the Venezuelan population are justifiably happy, there is a larger dimension of these events to consider.

Image Source: Growthlines.

The alt-media conspiracist outlet, Abel Danger, predicted earlier this month that Venezuela would be the first domino to fall in a new American- and British-led initiative, which will decimate Latin America and the Caribbean Basin in a long-term series of large wars. This supposed effort follows the same model as was used to devastate the Middle East over the past several decades. From 8 January 2019, The Terrible Forthcoming Destruction of the Caribbean Basin:
"President Trump has announced the withdrawal of US combat troops from the 'Greater Middle East', but the Pentagon is still pursuing the implementation of the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski plan. This time the aim is to destroy the States of the 'Caribbean Basin'. This is nothing like the overthrow of pro-Soviet regimes, as in the 1970’s, but the destruction of all regional state structures, without consideration for friends or political enemies. ...

In a series of previous articles, we presented the SouthCom plan to provoke wars between the Latin-American nations in order to destroy the structures of all the States in the 'Caribbean Basin'.

Preparations for wars of this magnitude, intended to follow on from the conflicts in the 'Greater Middle East' according to the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy, requires a decade.

After the period of economic destabilisation and that of military preparation, the actual operation should begin in the years to come by an attack on Venezuela by Brazil (supported by [Israel]), Colombia (an ally of the United States) and Guyana (in other words, the United Kingdom). It will be followed by others, beginning with Cuba and Nicaragua (the 'troïka of tyranny' according to John Bolton).

However, the original plan may be modified, particularly because of the return of the imperial ambitions of the United Kingdom which may influence the Pentagon."
The same article was reposted at Information Clearing House. It originally appeared on the Voltaire Network Website and was penned there by Thierry Meyssan. Meyssan is a left-wing French journalist and 9/11 truther who has investigated far-right movements. He has also worked for Russia Today and Odnako (Однако) and is apparently now based in Damascus, Syria. To me, it looks like he's a spy.

10 December 2018: Russia provided two nuclear-capable 'Blackjack' aka 'White Swan' bombers to Maduro's régime. Image Source: Federico Parra / AFP / Getty Images via The Guardian.

Meyssan is convinced that the European Union project will be dropped, or perhaps left to the Germans to sort out. The European powers will return to their old plans of imperial colonization abroad in competition with, and sometimes in cooperation with, the United States. Venezuela is the first domino to fall. On 15 January 2019, he wrote:
"[O]ne of the consequences of the successive ends of the bipolar and unipolar world is the re-establishment of colonial projects. One after the other, the French, Turkish and English have publicly declared the return of their colonial ambitions. We still need to know what form they will adopt in the 21st century."
While from a dubious source, if it is correct, it is terrible news for everybody. This larger context may explain Trump's plan to build a wall along the southern border of the United States. The wall construction may anticipate a widespread southern conflict and block the flow of soldiers and refugees. The Russians have provided nuclear-capable bombers and a Kalashnikov manufacturing plant to the Maduro administration. The latter has led to a spread of guns all over the Caribbean. Freelance journalist Colin Freeman has begun covering this story.

Note also that the 8 January report suggests that the Caribbean and Latin American conflict is believed to have been laid out over the past decade, prior to Donald Trump's election. This would mean that the planning for the conflict occurred under the Obama administration. If this is even partly true, it means that the 2016 American election, Brexit, the debate over the wall in the United States, the fierce political fights between liberals and conservatives, the Democrats' moves to impeach Trump, and the US government shutdown have been a big puppet show. Perhaps the puppet show kept eyes off the actual theatre of operations while pieces were moved into place.

Other small outlets made similar reports in the first half of January. As the Trade Union and Worker News in Africa put it, with yet another article by Meyssan, Goodbye Middle East, Hello Latin America. Whatever the evolution of the Venezuelan régime, nothing can justify what is being prepared against its population.

Anniversaries: End of the Great War

The hundredth anniversary of the end of World War I just passed on 11 November 2018. Normally, I watch the coverage of remembrance ceremonies, but this year, I was working on a writing project at a microbrewery, where everyone observed a minute of silence to remember the fallen soldiers, while the town's church bell tolled outside.

As memory fades of the 20th century world wars, I appreciate more and more the need to remember these conflicts, in order to avoid another century of bloodshed and particularly a third world war. The two world wars were both terrible and unprecedented in their own ways. If the Great War brought about the death of innocence, World War II led to the death of humanity, the death of the modern conscience.

My 2014 post on the anniversary of the start of the Great War is here. All my related posts on World War I are here.

Hallowe'en Countdown 2018: Julian Assange, Manchurian Candidate?


The Australian cult, 'The Family,' was certainly connected to Julian Assange in his childhood. But the extent of that connection is not well known. Image Source: The Age.

This week in the Hallowe'en countdown, I am covering arcane secrets which lie in plain sight. It is a common theme now that appearances are deceiving. Famous people and politicians hide behind glittering reputations, concealing sinister private realities, backroom deals, abuses, corruption, and weird spiritual beliefs. Another theme is the opposite idea that these truths aren't hidden. The common people are blind to self-evident facts, sitting right under their noses.

Free information reveals those facts. It blows open circles which, in the past, may have been secret, or may have been merely exclusive. This dynamic is being radicalized and is transforming the political landscape. Socialism is passé. The Red Pill - or the more extreme Black Pill - is the new calling card of the common man or woman.

Among those who have weaponized information against the establishment, none is more prominent than Julian Assange, publisher at WikiLeaks.

Image Source: Aangirfan.

However, whistle-blowing and leaks are no certain testament to credibility. Free information can be suppressed, discredited, or counter-weaponized by the establishment in order to harness its radical power.

Cyber activists are paranoid enough to know that there is a level of Millennial horror beyond Black Pilled disillusionment. See through all the façades, and you will reach a point at which you can trust no one, especially when they come to you bearing gifts of revelations. You cannot rely on those new populist leaders and anti-establishment whistle-blowers, who could be controlled opposition, agents meant in the final analysis to lead the flock back into the fold of a compromised establishment. Seeming reforms will come to naught and online freedom will revert to slavery. In this vein, you can read a scathing alt-attack on Assange and his intelligence connections, here.

This is why, where Assange is concerned, the jury is out among his Red Pilled followers. My last post summarized the work of Sam William, who vlogs about London, UK. When the vlogger visited the city's Ecuadorian embassy, his audience elaborated in the Youtube comments section on Assange's background:
"Assange was raised in a cult called 'The family' in Melbourne which was run by a wom[a]n called Anne Hamilton Byrne. The family conducted trauma based mind control on many white haired children. Anne was on the board of the Newhaven private hospital that was found guilty of administering LSD to patients as late as the 1980s. Anne was close fr[ie]nds with Lord Casey, founder of ASIS, Oz Secret intelligence service. Anne was on the run for many years from the FBI, hidden in the USA until they eventually got her. In 1994, she evaded prison and was only fined AUS $5000. These are my observations."
And:
"The cult was called The Family and the great leader was an Australian woman Ann Hamilton-Byrne. All of the children had bleached blonde hair and matching bowl cuts, like Children of the Damned- not just for aesthetics, but to take away individually and institute more control. The cult also dealt in child-trafficking and the sameness was useful in transporting them around with passports that may not be their own. The leader's daughter found she was not her biological daughter and was basically stolen as a baby and wrote a book on her upbringing. The children were systematically abused, drugged, sleep-deprived, trauma-based abuse. It was definitely a Tavistock cult, many cults are CIA/Tavistock inventions or they are co-opted when they show up on their radar and are useful grounds for experimentation. Julian got into the cult through his mother's boyfriend but I don't know if he has ever discussed it. All that matters are the actual wikileak documents and their legitimacy, not who he is. He could be a total Tavistock/CIA/shadow govt/reptilian overlord created persona and it doesn't really matter. It is striking that one would keep the culty hair-do after leaving the cult, unless you never really left ...)."
And:
"After I left this comment, I checked out what the daughter is up to, she is a doctor now- and I saw a comment she made, maybe on twitter, about how Julian couldn't have grown up in this cult and have been a teenage hacker when they didn't even have electricity. So he either did not grow up in the cult or was never a teen hacker. He is a constructed persona, used as a front for politically motivated leaks. The cult of personality built around him is pretty impressive though."
There is a lot to consider here, not least that the daughter mentioned above, Sarah Moore, died in May 2016 at the age of 46. Beyond the possibility that Julian Assange may have been partly raised in a cult, there is a question - as the commenters imply - of whether the cult was connected to a much larger picture. If so, we must ask whether that larger picture had any bearing from the start on Julian Assange's integrity, and on WikiLeaks's founding and agenda.

Awaken the Amnesiacs 8: You are Now Inside the Computer

The Urban Dictionary defines Youtube comments as:
"The only place where a polite discussion about kittens can lead to a flame war about government conspiracies."
Conspiracists vary in style. On Youtube, there is a spectrum. David Seaman's vitriol approaches incendiary levels, his this-is-not-a-threat promises are so chilling that they help me understand the history of mass psychology better, especially that of the 1930s.

This post is not exactly about Seaman, nor the accusations he levels in a brooding monotone at the bankers, politicians, deep-staters, evil cabal, establishment figures, and finally - the tech leaders who censor him (like Youtube CEO, Susan Wojcicki, whom he calls "Catshit Face"). This post is about Seaman's and others' rhetorical style in relation to conspiratorial subject matter, and what it means for all of us.

Prepare for the Saudi Singularity



I have published a new post (here) at Vocal Media, which argues that the upheavals in Saudi Arabia are symptomatic of a massive shift from economies based on oil, to economies based on the next stage of technology.

I argue that events in Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton suggest that the Singularity is coming, but not the way we expected. The Singularity will be commandeered by the Saudis, meaning that the dominant cultural tone of the Singularity will not be California Silicon Valley culture, or Asian culture, or German Tech-Kultur, or even Silicon Britain - or other global cultures you might expect.

Rather, the Singularity will be dominated by Wahhabist Islam.

The situation is far more complex than I have outlined in that Vocal piece; for more details, see James Corbett's summaries below. I don't always agree with Corbett's interpretations and opinions, but he has put together a decent overview of the situation, albeit from an alt-media perspective. He includes reasons why the Crown Prince may not succeed in commandeering the Singularity, much less Saudi Arabia.

Regardless, Corbett recognizes the basic new truth of our lives: Data is the New Oil. Erected before us like an unavoidable totem, this truth is not just economic or technological. Despite the scientific bent of technology, I maintain that the primary impact of this truth will be cultural and especially religious. We are at the exact moment that will determine which culture dominates and shapes the post-carbon era of the Singularity, related technocratic governments, and their official religions.

North Korea: Rand Corp Discussions



Bruce W. Bennett, Senior International Defense Researcher with the Rand Corporation, is discussing North Korea's military build-up of 20 to 50 nuclear weapons today. There is a one-hour podcast at the Rand Corporation's Website, here. Other tweets today refer to the Japanese need for military operational experience, and officially ending the Korean War to transform the diplomatic picture in the region.

Google's Infogate

This post is the first of several on decentralized information dynamics and real-fake, mainstream-alt news. I will start with the beast behind it all. On 4 September 1998, the search engine Google first appeared online. It is hard to believe, because it feels like a short time ago, but it was a pivotal moment between the way the world was and what it is now.

It used to be that if you wanted to find information you had to amass a personal book collection, and visit libraries and archives. You built a professional or amateur reputation as researcher. You had to get to know people - contacts, translators - who knew things, and travel around the world to see sequestered books, diaries and sealed files. Everything had to be taken down in pen and paper notes.

Once photocopiers existed, if the archivist was inclined, you would be permitted to photocopy small amounts of material at exorbitant rates. An average person might find one or two books at the bookstore or library, or have saved newspaper or magazine articles in a personal, physical, metal filing cabinet. That was it.

Before the Internet, information was hard won, and knowledge, wisdom and judgement about information even more so. The latter required time, contemplation, and reflection in total silence. It also demanded discussions with others who had done the same. It was a fundamentally different way of thinking.

In Millennial Eyes 4: Nuclear Times and Chernobyl Urbex

The blog returns on 1 May 2017 after a break, with a series of posts which will explain fake news, cyber-memes, techno-cultural disinformation, virtual politics, and the perception of truth. Today's post is a prologue. The nuclear issue triggers all of these uncertainties. When it comes to nuclear matters, you never really know what is happening, and the stakes are high. On Sunday, 23 April 2017, a truck carrying Iridium-192 was stolen in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco state, Mexico. This radioactive material can be used to make a dirty bomb, and it has not yet been recovered.


Meanwhile, the world nervously eyes the Korean peninsula. It is curious that there have been a recent changes in and around leadership in both Koreas. These might indicate (or lead to) an incredibly delicate and dangerous effort to reconcile the two countries. In South Korea, Park Geun-hye was impeached in December 2016, charged in April 2017 with corruption, and publicly condemned for witchcraft. Liberal human rights lawyer Moon Jae-in is projected to win a May 2017 South Korean election, and he may soften the tone on North Korea.

British tabloids and the American media are openly speculating on whether Trump's administration should assassinate Kim Jong-un to stop a nuclear war. But Jong-un has been careful to eliminate successors, with few remaining close family members. The fact that he may have had his half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, assassinated on 13 February 2017 raised eyebrows. The use of the rare VX poison in the killing was even more disturbing. Developed by the British in the mid-1950s, it is the world's most toxic nerve agent and classed as a weapon of mass destruction. To use it in a public place on a direct descendant of North Korea's Baekdu Bloodline was a sign of extreme ruthlessness. Even more than all the other atrocities and executions, the murder of Jong-nam really scared people; it merited research and reconsideration of what is happening in Pyongyang.


I have previously blogged about the Kim family and possible successors here. A favourite possibility among western leaders is Kim Jong-un's nephew and Jong-nam's son, Kim Han-sol, who is now 21 years old. Han-sol turned down an offer to study at Oxford University in February 2017, due to fears that he would be assassinated there.

North Korea is planning another nuclear test and rapidly developing its nuclear weapons program and ballistic missiles. It is hard to tell whether the tensions on the peninsula are a deadly game of bluff, or if Trump's unpredictable administration is planning preemptive action to contain North Korea's capabilities, or if this is a game of 4-D chess, marked by psychological warfare and sabre-rattling.

There are reports on rehearsals for ex-pat civilian evacuations from South Korea. Officials from the Five Eyes intelligence network (USA, UK, NZ, Australia and Canada) met in Queenstown, New Zealand over the weekend of the 21-23 April. On 26 April, Kim Jong-un watched a giant live-fire drill (see it here) to mark the 85th anniversary of the founding of the North Korean People's Army. The US Senate has been summoned for a White House briefing regarding North Korea, also on 26 April 2017.







At the same time, there are drills in New York City to prepare for a simulated direct nuclear bomb strike over Manhattan on 24-26 April 2017, which may have already involved power outages in San Francisco; New York; Frankfort, Kentucky; and Los Angeles. Operation Gotham Shield uses a 10 kiloton yield, or a bomb a bit larger than a 'suitcase nuke,' as its hypothetical weapon. The FEMA overview manual for Gotham Shield is here. A November 2016 simulated nuclear attack (the Northern Lights Nuclear Power Plants Exercise) checked the readiness of the electrical grid at the Monticello plant and Camp Ripley, Minnesota on the US-Canadian border.

I have previously argued on this blog that the US had already nuked itself through numerous bomb tests over the past 70 years and lives in denial of this fact. In February 2017, there was an explosion at a French nuclear plant, Flamanville, but there was "no nuclear risk." Even more incredible denial is evident in Japan, where three China Syndromes have likely occurred at Fukushima. Yet on the sixth anniversary of the Tōhoku earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster, the government has invited families to reinhabit the exclusion zone. Fish are declared safe to eatDeeper denial: the summer 2020 Olympic games are partly set there!

Worse, workers were told they no longer needed protective suits at 95 per cent of the site. The rumour ran that this was because the huge quantity of hazmat suits became too expensive; the workers were considered likely to die anyway from exposure; therefore, the suits could be dispensed with to cut costs. There are unconfirmed stories and muted reports (often ending in dead links) of a TEPCO cover-up of thousands of dead Fukushima workers, whose employment is run by the Japanese mob, the Yakuza.

This is an insane 'war without a war,' a nightmare in which Japanese aquifers are irretrievably poisoned. In February 2017, there was unconfirmed talk that underground explosions occurred, likely due to the molten coria hitting the water table. These explosions were heard and felt miles away from the plant. Also in February, a robot measured a staggering 530 sieverts per hour inside Reactor #2 - far higher than any reading ever recorded at Chernobyl. That reading could be ten times higher close to the elusive core. Due to the unwillingness to face the devastation of atomic realities, it is worth remembering the aftermath in an uninhabited nuclear wasteland.


The date 26 April 2017 shifts attention to another nuclear theatre. Today's post commemorates the 31st anniversary of the second-worst nuclear disaster in history at the Chernobyl plant and Pripyat, Ukraine. The blog follows American Millennial urbex Youtuber Josh, who said Pripyat was "legit" during his visit in March 2016. Actually, that is true. To understand the magnitudes of radiation which Josh's MKS-05 Terra-P dosimeter displayed (in microsieverts (uSv) per hour), go here and here. One sievert (1,000,000 microsieverts) if absorbed all at once is enough to make you ill; 6 to 10 sieverts will cause death.
