Draft ~ notes ~ for input: Now that we realise how it works, we need to change the world in our image
A thesis: Corporate politicians, media and the arms industry is there to serve the 1% that owns them.
Antithesis: You can come up with this. Honestly, I was never that taken by Marx. Some post-Marxists were pretty good.
Anyway: What we’ve got to do is take power from rich b’stards, get away from this absolute terrrism nonsense that they’re doing – to control people through FEAR – and decide what sort of societies and World that we want. Then we’ve got to do it.
For a start, I suggest that we don’t tolerate rich people.
Doesn’t homegrown have a previous meaning?
If you call something ‘homegrown’, doesn’t it already have a meaning – doesn’t homegrown already mean something?
Why is it called homegrown? Homegrown means homegrown.
It had a meaning. It meant homegrown.
It meant grown in your home, get it?
It referred to cannabis grown at home. That’s what it means – or meant.
So if you called somone a homegrown terrorist, does that mean that they are someone called a terrrist that grows Cannabis at their home?
called a terrrist & has a not so secret garden?
Why else call them homegrown? That’s what it means.
Still waiting. You heard it here first.
Prime Minister David Cameron is to announce that:
- Jobcentres are to transition to a role closer to that of employment agencies.
- A commitment to reduce unemployment to a period of two weeks.
- Subsidised placements at full pay for three months for the mature unemployed.
Prime Minister David Cameron said
“We can’t afford to have people unemployed. This initiative is for people in their thirties, forties and fifties. We recognise that these people have considerable skills and experience that is important for our economy and we want to get them back working. I am today announcing a new initiative to get them back into productive employment.”
“We recognise that these people have an important role to play in ensuring that the United Kingdom is a competitive economy. The idea is that Jobcentres will place these people as soon as possible – ideally within two weeks – into a similar work environment. We don’t want people to be unemployed and I am pleased to announce this fundamental change in policy.”
Prime Minister Cameron stressed that that the government was committed to address the issue of the young unemployed – so called NEETs – although this program was addressed at more mature jobseekers.
… I hereby make a confessional that I was wayward in my youth but I do not make any claim that I am able or appropriate to be elected to high office.
Isn’t this a constitutional crisis?
We don’t believe your bullshit.
We call you out – This terrorism bullshit is bullshit.
We realise that the Neo-Con terrorism be afraid bullshit is exactly that.
ed: The Rest of the World recognises Neo-Con terrorism bullshit as exactly that. I would hope that it is recognised that Pres. Obama is a different administration. I hope that he shows that he is. I do actually have some faith in him ;)
later edit: faith might be the wrong word but then that’s the word I used… He’s not there for much longer – let’s be easy, eh?
later again edit: actually I commend Obama and I ask you to support his efforts.
And hopefully he’s realise very soon that drones are outrageous.
counter-productive, nasty, so evil that wedding parties are getting …
Let’s make this clear. I want to or I am even supporting Obama. Yes I am. But let’s stop the nonsense. Let’s stop that.
Actually I’ve got distracted. I’d like the Pres to be righteous.
later: OK Pres: Can you please stop the drones? The problem is that the drones are killing the wrong people. To be honest you should realise that there are no terrorists – that it’s all total nonsense.
Anyway, please stop the drones that kill wedding parties. Also, please stop this War on Terrorism bullshit. There are no terrorists. Please come and discuss it with me.
Well of course there are terroritsts. WTF are they? It’s not difficult, is it?
Well, I think that so-called Anarchists are very crap. They believe 9/11 and 7/7 bullshit for a start.
Call yourself an (A)narchist and believe Corporatist BS? You are so Fing crap.
Do also swallow wholesale the whole terrrism shit? You’re fecking useless.
Hey, it’s all fashion for you, No?
Anarchists. Punk fashion. FO.
later edit: It’s so ridiculous that this absolute, total nonsense is accepted by you. Don’t you realise that it’s BS for mongs? Yes, I know that it’s not politically correct. Are you a mong?
King El! Can you think for yourself? Can you think for yourself?
A bearded one with a laptop in a cave in Afghanistan? C’mon get real.
It was controlled in the United States. It was done from within US.
With assistance from Bliar’s UK …
If you are different you will be noticed and on the register.
This is so out of order. Any democratic society should respect freedoms of all sorts.
This is the Neo-Con nonsense which we’ve had for the past fifteen or twenty years.
FO, we’ll get along fine
This article considers Boris Johnson’s remarks about terrorist onanism and proposes two alternative terrorist profiles – one of terrorists and one of their agents.
Privilidged Mayor of London Boris ‘Bullingdon idiot’ Johnson claims that ‘If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers.’ Johnson’s comments – like Johnson himself – don’t contribute much of anything to anything.
Firstly, anonists and watchers of porn are accepting of and uninhibited in their sexuality. The most accepting of and uninhibited in their sexuality are gays and bisexuals. The intended slur is actually an insult to gay and bisexual sexuality.
Secondly, this issue of psychological profiles is equally BS. Psyschological profiles are of little use and little used because terrorists are so diverse. Later media stories cited psychological profiles by MI5 after I did some searches. That’s useful for rich ass Boris because researchers don’t have access to mythical psychological profiles by MI5.
Terrorism follows patterns. For example, there’s usually an exercise ongoing, it occurs at politically salient times and employs number symbolism. It is also often facilitated by local authorities – lucky there wasn’t any traffic, cops with radios or cars or motorcycles or helicopters in Paris, eh? We have police cars with lights and sirens and full of technology in the UK and they keep big guns in the back.
Once you accept that the actual terrorists are state actors and that terrorism serves political purposes for the rich elite, you can understand that MI5 itself serves these interests and that any profiles are profiles of political opponents labelled as terrorists.
To help, I’ve prepared two simple profiles – one of the terrorists and one of their servants, assistants or foot-soldiers.
- Priviledged wealth. I mean in the top 1% of the wealthy. Born into it.
- Privilidged position e.g. Mayor or former Mayor of London or New York, Prime Minister, former President, Home Secretary, Minister of Defence, etc.
- Priviledged education. Notice that I’m not saying well-educated. public school, Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, etc
- Neo-Con political orientation. I’m coming to realise that Neo-Con is not at all distant from Fascist or Neo-Fascist. Neo-Cons are using the same methods of terrorism, misdirection and victimisation as the Nazis that they financed.
- Member of a privilidged fraternal organisation e.g. Bullingdon Club, Skull & Bones (formerly the Brotherhood of Death), Bavaria Grove, etc
- Temporally and spatially local to Benjemin Netenyahu or Rudolph Giuliani.
Terrorist foot-soldiers profile
- Employeed by a three-letter acronym e.g. CIA, FBI, MI5, MI6, SAS,
FIU, SRR, MPS, Sad, Bet. (and the exception QinetiQ on 7/7, QiQ?).
- Promoted for failure e.g. Ian Blair, Cressida Dick, Tony Blair?
- Temporally and spatially local to Benjemin Netenyahu or Rudolph Giuliani.
With thanks to Webster Tarpley for the promoted for failure item. He discusses Hurricane Katrina and the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center facilitated by the FBI here.
I’ve had a book by Webster Tarpley infiltrated and confiscated by terrorist agents just recently. I guess – though I’ll admit that I’m uncertain – that it would be my local police. I ordered 911 SYNTHETIC TERROR through amazon.uk two weeks ago on 19 January. The terrorists don’t want me to read it.
Climate change is real – we are destroying our beautiful
“2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record. Now, one year doesn’t make a trend, but this does: Fourteen of the 15 warmest years on record have all fallen in the first 15 years of this century.” President Obama, US President 2015 State of the Nation address.
[5/2/15 I may have been mistaken about the running inside virtualization and that is probably normal livecd messages. There is still something amiss with the different ps axu(s) – it does at least make me very suspicious since I can’t think of any reason why that would happen other than nasty. I’m also surprised that this system is so difficult to boot into OpenBSD. You can’t be too paranoid, or can you?]
I’ve got an AMD64 thin client as a gateway / router that also runs a tor relay. It usually runs dnsmasq but has been running the more conventional dhcpd and named recently. It uses a small camera-style flash card as a hard drive running current and patched OpenBSD. My internal network connects to this through a switch. I run firewalls on all machines – pf on this of course and usually arno-iptables-firewall on debian boxes. This box currently has an uptime of over 59 days.
Just recently I’ve had a hard drive fail on my desktop debian machine. I was very surprised at this since it’s very low mileage and being debian linux it hardly ever gets powered down. It appeared to have many and increasing terrible errors that also seemed to jump about whenever I tried e2fscking them. I can’t help but suspect that GCHQ contributed to the apparent demise of this drive.
My new replacement drive arrived yesterday and I had decided to install an OpenBSD xfce desktop. None of the OpenBSD install cds were recognised. What’s going on here?
At the OpenBSD box:

That can’t be right – that tor only appears in the second and subsequent ps axu(s). Having huge difficulty i.e. it is impossible, to install OpenBSD to my desktop machine. They’re pwned.
OpenBSD doesn’t install under a Linux virualization ‘wrapper’. Linux runs under Linux virtualization, OpenBSD won’t – at least not under this virtualization.
“NET: Registered protocol family 17
mpls_gso: MPLS GSO support” it reads – it’s embedded Linux.
It appears to be a very small wrapper in IPv6 coming from the OpenBSD router / gateway. My laptop starts complaining that BIOS has been changed – not seen that message before. The tor
router relay is stopped pretty sharpish.
GCHQ? Well my connection to my ISP is to their ‘audit’ machine. I guess that means GCHQ. My close friend’s car was hours late back from it’s first service – shouldn’t the first service only be oil and filter, a half hour job? After that it was clear that cops could hear everything said in that car and were often waiting for us to arrive. A friend who I was once close to had the ‘Water Board’ round to check his taps. He remarked that she was well-presented. I’ve noticed that local ‘Scientific Investigation’ policewomen are well-presented. Oh, and we had a deep cover spy at our anti-casualisation group meetings. He was also at a pre-G8 2005 meeting. I think that he was Met, very interested in me and an apparent dirty, hairy anarchist cop.
I was using a password 29 characters long. My guess is that they used my mobile to map my keyboard – different characters sound different and there are differences in the time I take to reach them. Or they could have watched (spied) through the window.
I don’t know if they wanted me to find this or not. I met someone from GCHQ in the Bunch of Grapes one Friday afternoon many years ago. It’s their job, it’s what they do.
I watched this a few hours earlier. You may get lost after the first 10 minutes or so. 30 to 37 minutes or so is good for politicians.

I’m listening to this at the moment
but while I’m listening to this I want to explain a far greater danger than terrorism that I face almost daily because you see, I am a cyclist.
Yesterday I was almost mown down by a motorist that was on the wrong side of the road and almost mowed me down. He had not seen me because he was texting.
Motorists on mobile phones are lethal to cyclists – a far greater danger than any supposed attacks by ‘terrorists’. I can attest that there is a far greater danger to people – pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists – than terrorism. We need a sense of proportion, to be measured and to asses issues. As a cyclist, I am telling you it is far more dangerous than any fake manufactured, terrorism nonsense. I accept that there are a very few terrorists – usually insane. How can they be anything other than insane? But, they are caught up in the terrorist narrative. Cycling and being a pedestrian is far more dangerous.
Where is the international campaign against motorists using mobile phones? Surely NASA, GCHQ can catch these ‘t*******ts’? Don’t they cause terror to ordinary people and kill indiscriminitely? Actually, yes they do. And far more than this terrorism BS.
There are very few terrorist. Yes they should be pursued. There is fake, manufactured terrorism which is still terrorism pursued by nation-states and criminal cabals. There are also a few poor sods caught up in the terrorism narrative but let’s get it in perspective.
Indiscriminite drones. Stop it.
Ok, er, cycling is nothing compared to rockets from a drone. It’s much the same that it’s totally undeserved but I reckon a drone is far more lethal
– he’s talking about speed limits now
struck by lightening
I suggest that you watch the Greenwald vid. still long to go – talking about inscenity now
Talking about terrorism defined as what Muslims do. We had this in Uk recently with the car driven into council offices up North which then exploded. Strangely enough that wasn’t a car bomb and was reported on the news as most definitely not terrorism …
Intermission: I take advantage of this intermission to point out out that I do magick: that I have converted water into wine with the assistance of fruit, sugar and yeast. I made Melomel for the first time this year and I think that it may have been the first medicine (Meddygon Myddfai). Untreated, unadulterated honey and currant fruits worked really well. It was like a universal medicine – anything that was wrong with you it cured. I believe that it is possible to keep bees without exploiting them.
OK, intermission over.
22/1/15 2.40am At least they know that I’m not into CP. I wish that they would go for the ones that are (and more). Actually, I want them to go for the people that abuse children. My understanding of GCHQ’s purpose is that it’s outside their remit. I think that GCHQ is military and concerned with defence. Can we change that so that they catch paedos?
better now ;)

The World Socialist Website comments on Western “Free Speech” hypocrisy after the strange events of Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
While I support free speech, some reporting has been worse than useless. Does anyone know if there were two or three attackers yet? Were they Kalashnikovs or AK47s? I know what a rocket launcher is, but what’s a rocket grenade launcher? Do you really believe that an attacker left his identity card in the getaway vehicle? How fortunate … and haven’t we heard that one before many times?
Throughout Europe and the United States, the claim is being made that the attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo was an assault on the freedom of the press and the unalienable right of journalists in a democratic society to express themselves without loss of freedom or fear for their lives. The killing of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and editors is being proclaimed an assault on the principles of free speech that are, supposedly, held so dear in Europe and the United States. The attack on Charlie Hebdo is, thus, presented as an another outrage by Muslims who cannot tolerate Western “freedoms.” From this the conclusion must be drawn that the “war on terror”—i.e., the imperialist onslaught on the Middle East, Central Asia and North and Central Africa—is an unavoidable necessity.
In the midst of this orgy of democratic hypocrisy, no reference is made to the fact that the American military, in the course of its wars in the Middle East, is responsible for the deaths of at least 15 journalists. In the on-going narrative of “Freedom of Speech Under Attack,” there is no place for any mention of the 2003 air-to-surface missile attack on the offices of Al Jazeera in Baghdad that left three journalists dead and four wounded.
Nor is anything being written or said about the July 2007 murder of two Reuters journalists working in Baghdad, staff photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen and driver Saeed Chmagh. Both men were deliberately targeted by US Apache gunships while on assignment in East Baghdad.
The American and international public was first able to view a video of the cold-blooded murder of the two journalists as well as a group of Iraqis—taken from one of the gunships—as the result of WikiLeaks’ release of classified material that it had obtained from an American soldier, Corporal Bradley Chelsea Manning.
And how has the United States and Europe acted to protect WikiLeaks’ exercise of free speech? Julian Assange, the founder and publisher of WikiLeaks, has been subjected to relentless persecution. Leading political and media figures in the United States and Canada have denounced him as a “terrorist” and demanded his arrest, with some even calling publicly for his murder. Assange is being pursued on fraudulent “rape” charges concocted by American and Swedish intelligence services. He has been compelled to seek sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, which is under constant guard by British police who will seize Assange if he steps out of the embassy. As for Chelsea Manning, she is presently in prison, serving out a 35-year sentence for treason.
That is how the great capitalist “democracies” of North America and Europe have demonstrated their commitment to free speech and the safety of journalists!
