Alan Watt "Cutting Through The Matrix" LIVE on RBN:
Poem Copyright Alan Watt June 15, 2012:
What's Happenin' Man?
"It's a New World Order, Age of Transitions,
Lots of New Normals Jockeying for Positions,
Post-Industrial, Post-Family, Post-Democracy Too,
Our Masters via Agencies Run the Human Zoo,
Millions Using Noise, So They don't Think,
Lots of Flashy Entertainment as They Go Extinct,
Cancers Escalate, Young Dropping with Strokes,
Infertile Men Produce No Virile Healthy Folks,
It's Going as Planned, Just Like Sci-Fi Novels,
An Incredibly Wealthy Rich, Poor in the Hovels,
Helped by Surrealism of Hollywood Entertainment,
HAARP, Smart meters, ELF, and Brain Entrainment"

Poem & Dialogue Copyrighted Alan Watt - June 15, 2012 (Exempting Music, Literary Quotes, and Callers' Comments)
Hi folks. I am Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on the 15th of June 2012. For newcomers, help yourself to the website cuttingthroughthematrix.com. Thereís lots of audios for free download there, where youíll start to understand the big system youíre born into and how weíre managed basically by professionals, old, old sciences of course, sciences that go back thousands of years on how to manage populations and even empires. So thereís nothing new under the sun except they have more technology now and a quicker ability to find out what the publicís pretty well thinking on a daily, in fact an instantaneous basis in real time. So you find out where theyíre going with it, why theyíre going this way too and what the big agenda is. Because itís a eugenics agenda where those at the top decided a long time ago that they got to the top by being the fittest and the best and the brightest and the better-bred, and itís time, in a post-industrial, post-consumer society, post-democratic society, to start bringing in the NEW world order. So thatís what it is. Itís also called the Age of Transitions; itís got a few other names as well. But the elite hope to bring in, eventually, their new city-states around the year 2050 or thereabout, where theyíll phase away countries altogether, and the more important people with all their technologists and so on, that will keep all these cities afloat, will rule the world or at least rule themselves and their own city-states and the world with it, whatís left of it. In the meantime their big problem is culling off the general population, quietly, and humanely of course; theyíll never admit it to you. All the signs and symptoms have always been around you but they never admit it to you. They canít because youíd have to do something about it if they did. And that will never happen.
So help yourselves to the audios, as I say. Remember too, you are the audience that bring me to you. You can buy the books and discs at cuttingthroughthematrix.com. You can donate as well. Remember all those sites listed on the .com site have audios and transcripts as well for print up. You can go into alanwattsentientsentinel.eu for transcripts in other languages. So thatís how you can do it. [Order and donation options listed above.] Straight donations are really, really welcome, believe you me.
Now, the Age of Transitions is part of it, when the big experiment comes to this juncture, where weíre at today, where theyíre joining whole countries together in blocs, an idea floated by Marx initially and then taken up by the Royal Institute of International Affairs when it came into fruition. Of course you find other organizations preceded the name Royal Institute of International Affairs. You had the Milner Group, Cecil Rhodes Foundation and various other ones that came together to form this big bloc, with the bankers of course all working with it. Iím not talking about bankers, the guys that you deposit with. Iím talking about the international guys with their private banks who basically float whole nations, or sink them, as the case may be.
So itís an incredible plan for those who are completely unaware of it.† Youíre taught to believe youíre floating along and bad things just happen every day and politicians just try and fix the problems - like a leaky boat, you just stick corks in it. Thatís the impression that youíre supposed to get from the mainstream media, which is owned by the bankers, but nothing is further from the truth. Your whole life and the whole last century too, literally weíre living through a script, a script with far-reaching plans where so many different aspects of society had to be completely destroyed or altered that it would be unrecognizable looking back on it how people lived that way, with these old-fashioned ideas that they had. Thatís been accomplished in the last hundred years. Back with more after this break.
Hi folks, Iím back Cutting Through The Matrix, talking about this big system of change. Of course itís planned change, and Iíve mentioned so many times over many years, you simply look back at the Soviet system, you look back at the United Nations system and at the present too. Theyíve got 5, 10, 50, 100 year plans all to do with different aspects of altering society, culture and the world in general. And thatís how the world is run. Even big corporations plan their investments that way too, and their takeovers, years and years ahead, because itís all to do with strategy, you see. The world is run the same way.
Now, most folk, as I say, think theyíre born into a system thatís just floating along and big accidents happen and politicians just jump into action - if you want to call it jumping; crawl into action maybe - and try to solve the problems. But nothing as I say is further from the truth, nothing at all. Because you can find in the old books written by the big players, especially those who were associated with ANY United Nations organizations in a global structure and level, youíll find in their own biographies the whole plan for the world, the planned society. Go back to the Fabian Society and listen to their speeches and read their speeches and what they planned too. They wanted to bring in this planned, organized society where the better people, the intelligentsia whoíd proven their stuff by getting a lot of cash over centuries, slaughtering other people, and marrying other people who also came from families that slaughtered other people and accumulated wealth. In other words, the fittest to survive, the better types of psychopaths, and they would organize how everyone else should live. They even debated too, what was the purpose of all of the rest of the public? They came to the decision that man was no different than any other herd of animals, and of course they are the good shepherds, you are the sheep and you feed the shepherds; thatís your purpose.
Literally, all the old ideas of Christendom were scrutinized and tossed out the window a long, long time ago by those who decided that they preferred Darwinís ideas. And itís been that way ever since. And it certainly does make you think, like Nietzsche says, when God is dead how do you think, how will you view society, and yourself, if God is dead and all those rules are out the window? Then itís mankindís rules then and man is always out for power so the powerful will always grab and be the new rulers. Thatís the world in which we really, really live.
Of course science came to the fore. Darwin helped kick it off. Marx added to it; in fact, Marx wanted to dedicate I think his third or fourth edition to Darwin because he thought that Darwinism proved the supposed science of communism, etc., and all the ideas that Marx was putting forward. And again too, communism was not a rebellion of the workers, for anything at all, and freedom. It was really just a takeover of a system by another group of people with the pretense of using science to control and monopolize society and use society. For the benefit of all of course; itís always Ďfor the greater good.í
So weíve never had honesty, you see, in government. And governmentís not about honesty; itís about secrecy. So many departments are involved in nefarious things that they donít want you to know about that they will actually put the Official Secrets Act on many of the goings-on at the present time, and theyíll lift them maybe in 50 yearsí time when most of the folk are dead or donít care. Thatís how government has been for many, many years, for well over a century.
Now, weíre going into the authoritarian stage, as I say. We are IN the authoritarian stage that was predicted by the Club of Rome who came up with the ideas of post-democracy back in the 70s, 1970s. They said, weíd have to use authoritarian societies and authoritarian governments to rule society in a more efficient manner. All the squabbling between different groups, which they knew would happen, because you see, the United Nations makes sure that theyíve created thousands of conflicting parties that will always squabble, to give the impression that you canít do it any other way, you have to go under an authoritarian system who just overcomes all of that and just gives the orders and we all obey, or else. And thatís what weíre in now.
Even the article I gave out the other day there to do with Ban Ki Moon saying that weíre basically going into austerity and he wants forced labor camps to work for the environment and all this. This was all tried in the communist system. Everybody supposedly would spend so many years as a student working in the fields and all that nonsense, except for the special ones who ruled the country because it wasnít in their job description, you might say, and something else besides.† Anyway, it says hereÖ
Canadians Threatened With Jobs For Criticizing The Government
June 14, 2012
(Alan: This is happening across the world now. Iíve got quite a few articles like this.)
(CBC News) Parks Canada employees across the country have received letters warning theyíre not allowed to criticize the agency or the federal government. The directive comes as the agency cuts hundreds of jobs or curtails work hours.
ďI am aware that during this time of significant transition (A: Again, that transition again.), the concept of loyalty can have a very particular meaning. However, as employees of the public sector, our duty is to support the elected government,Ē employees were told. (A: So it goes on of course, and on and on and on.)
But no doubt theyíll probably privatize them all down the road anyway or bring in Blackwater to look after the forest and slaughter anybody who fancies going for a walk perhaps. Because thatís the way the world is going. Weíre all being privatized. Private corporations are to rule the world. They already do, in a sense; they already do. They put politicians in. Itís so funny, all this nonsense about anybody can be President or Prime Minister. You see the money you got to get? to get even started to run for office? And youíve got to have the okays of the Council on Foreign Relations and all their boys. They are the guys who decide. Because all the big corporate members are also members of the CFR and if they donít want to even notice you, you wonít be noticed, you wonít get a mention in any paper at all. So itís all a con game. But theyíve got to use this idea of voting and democracy, otherwise youíd have to rebel every four or five years. And they donít want that of course. It works awfully, awfully well.
Now, China is the model state for the world, according to the United Nations thatís said it many, many times. Itís got many different aspects that the United Nations thinks are just wonderful, a very compliant population. You can work them 12 hours, 14 hours a day, all ages, it doesnít matter what age they are. You can lock them in factories too if you want and theyíre awfully obedient; they donít rebel at all. Thatís what they want everywhere across the world. But also, they only have one-child-per-family unless youíre wealthy, because they have a class system in this communist nation, you know; itís communist still, you know. They have a class system, theyíve always had a class system in the so-called communist system. If you are part of the Politburo class, the middle classes, etc. then you can pay a certain fee and have a second child. But all the masses of the public canít afford that kind of fee and theyíre not given permission anyway. Now it saysÖ
China confirms forced abortion case after uproar
news.yahoo.com / AFP News Ė Jun 14, 2012
Chinese authorities confirmed Thursday that a woman was forced to abort seven months into her pregnancy, (A: Thatís what they do there. They can get you from your home.) several days after her plight came to light when images of her baby's corpse were posted online. (A: Iíve got the articles here, Iíll put them up too for those that want to see the photographs, they will. They dumped the baby next to her, that they killed of course, and dumped it next to her. Thatís the medical care in China.)
Rights groups have blamed authorities in north China's Shaanxi province for forcing Feng Jianmei to abort her pregnancy because she failed to pay a hefty fine for exceeding China's strict "one-child" population control policy.
The Shaanxi provincial government said in a statement that a preliminary probe had confirmed the case was "basically true", and the investigators have recommended action be taken against the perpetrators. (A: This has always been going on and it will continue to be. Theyíve always been doing this kind of stuff. So Iíll put these articles up.)
China apologises to pregnant woman forced to have abortion at seven months for breaching one-child policy and suspends three officials
dailymail.co.uk / Richard Shears / 14 June 2012
This is the country that the United Nations wants us all to follow. They like this idea of government agencies and commissars, all down to the local level, that just bark orders at the public and the peasants, you know, bow down and all that, GROVEL. They like that stuff. They do. And thatís what they want you to do as well. In fact, theyíre bit miffed that you donít at the moment. But it will come, it will come. Thatís what they actually want.
Now, this article here gets me going because itís about Scotland and what they give them in schools for their lunches, itís called dinner basically, at 2 pounds a shot. Anyway, this little girl got ticked off with it and put a blog up and photographed the different lunches that came along, with a kind of a score graph of one to ten on what she thought of them. Iíll put this up for you to decide yourself what you think. Of course the school came down on her like a ton of bricks because sheís exposing what theyíre getting fed at school and what of course the wonderful nutritional staff decided is good for you. And it wouldnít keep a mouse alive when youíre growing, believe you me.† Iíll put this one up tonight too.

Plus the craziness in society to do with the end product of narcissism. Remember, Bertrand Russell and Julian Huxley said that they would create this narcissistic society where people were hedonistic, towards the end part, then they wouldnít care what else they were doing in the world, the big, big changes, they wouldnít care what was happening as long as they were wrapped in their own little world doing their own thing to themselves or for themselves and so on. And they go crazy with cosmetics and plastic surgery and they try to stay young forever in the big cities, and the older women get so much put out on themselves trying to compete with the young women. And itís madness. You canít win that way. Itís against nature and believe you me, you cannot beat nature. AnywayÖ

So sheís written a book on it, because now sheís kind of anchored to her chair with a rather heavy weight there because of her addiction. But it just shows you how farcical it all becomes. And itís all promoted through television, through music television and all the rest of it, until itís GROTESQUE, because people are going insane, folks. Theyíre going crazy, all over the place. Look at all the so-called bath salts craziness thatís going on. Another woman shot and killed, or tazered to death because she was trying to strangle her own child and then she strangled the dog and then she was attacking neighbors and punching them out, and in the nude too. This is happening all over the place now; people are going nuts, absolutely nuts.

Because reality is too morbid for them and too serious and too scary for them to survive. They prefer going into insanity than being sane, especially at the bottom of the heap and thereís no hope. And youíll see an awful, awful lot more of this kind of stuff. Iíll come back with another story of madness after these messages.
Hi folks, Iím Alan Watt. Weíre Cutting Through The Matrix, talking about the madness thatís breaking out all over, because itís time for it you see, as people go around the bend. Mind you, theyíve all been poisoned, shot; they eat rotten food thatís full of poisons too and toxins, at the bottom level, which is actually from the middle to the bottom level. And theyíve been pumped full of so many inoculations their whole lives that youíre seeing the product today. The doctors certainly do although they keep their mouth shut and so do those involved in specific surgeries; they understand whatís happening to the human condition. Because weíre an absolute mess, as it was intended to be. Cancers are absolutely just skyrocketing; they keep going up and up, but thereís no crisis because you see, itís planned that way. If it wasnít there would be a crisis because the big boys would have to know whatís happening to their animals; after all they feed on us, you see.
At the same time too, theyíre going ahead with their neuroengineering. This articleís about neuroengineering and neuroscience. They want to dominate your minds, remember. And MIT, they are government-funded completely and every black budget goes through there too, to find ways for creating weaponry or dominating the mind itself. This is an article saying thatÖ
MIT creates glucose fuel cell
to power implanted brain-computer interfaces
extremetech.com / Sebastian Anthony / June 13, 2012
Neuroengineers at MIT have created a implantable fuel cell that generates electricity from the glucose present in the cerebrospinal fluid that flows around your brain and spinal cord. In theory, this fuel cell could eventually drive low-power sensors and computers that decode your brain activity to interface with prosthetic limbs. (A: Well itís not limbs theyíre thinking about; they always use that kind of excuse. Believe you me, theyíd never put millions and millions of dollars into helping those whoíve got problems and physical disabilities.)
The glucose-powered fuel cell is crafted out of silicon and platinum, using standard semiconductor fabrication processes. The platinum acts as a catalyst, stripping electrons from glucose molecules, similar to how aerobic animal cells (such as our own) strip electrons from glucose with enzymes and oxygen.
So anyway, now theyíve got the fuel cell and theyíve already got the chip so itís only a matter of time before they put the two together, if theyíve not done it already, probably have somewhere, and weíll hear how that works out then. Probably start giving it for people who say, ďIím depressedĒ; you know, theyíre on the streets, no job, no hope of the future, and ďIím depressedĒ. So they donít give you a job or help you to work or train you. No. They just put a chip in your brain and suddenly youíre all happy, as you starve to death. Thatís the intention of the controlled society and thatís what all of that of course is really, really for.
Now, in Britain, donít everÖ Itís so mad. I mean, these are things that you would see at one time in Monty Python, giving you scenarios of the future. But you canít satirize it today because weíre beyond satire. Weíre way beyond satire, what we take for granted today. But a student from Wales, I guess he was a foreign student who had gone to Wales to study, went to London for a little holiday and his car packed in, it broke down near the Houses of Parliament. So it says hereÖ
dailymail.co.uk / Ian Garland / 13 June 2012
One poor tourist learned today you risk more than a fine when you park illegally on the city's streets.
Anti-terrorist police evacuated Parliament Square and carried out a controlled explosion on Nima Hosseini Razi's dark blue Ford Mondeo after he abandoned it just yards from the House of Commons and Westminster Abbey.
When Mr Razi's car broke down in Storey's Gate, he slipped a note on the dashboard explaining 'this car is broken. I am just waiting for the AA (A: Thatís the Automobile Association.) to arrive. Please do not fine! Thank you, yours sincerely'. (A: Well that mightíve done okay in the times of the Raj but not these days.)
He then decided to pay a visit to Buckingham Palace, just a five minute stroll away.
When Mr Razi - a MBA student at the University of Wales visiting London for just 24 hours - returned from his sightseeing trip, he found swarms of police officers scouring the remains of his mangled car. (A: They blew it up.)
To add insult to injury - a traffic warden arrived on the scene and issued him a ticket (A: ...for parking...), after being alerted by the police.
So thatís your big ha-ha, and thatís how Britain does all these stories, like ha-ha; thatís your typical kind of story. I mean, thatís madness. This is madness you see. And they would know who owned the car and all the rest of it because they have instant ID checks on your plates etc., etc., and never mind all the cameras that youíre already on when you park especially in places like that. So they just blow it up now and then they hand you a parking ticket and thatís that. Iím surprised they didnít haul him in too and torture him. But thatís the way it goes.
Google, Amazon lead rush for new Web domain suffixes
in bids to ICANN
washingtonpost.com / Hayley Tsukayama and Peter Whoriskey / June 13, 2012
Amazon and Google are staking claims to large swaths of the Internet under a new system for labeling Web domains, bolstering their ability to control traffic as the Web expands beyond the realms of ď.com,Ē ď.govĒ and ď.org.Ē
The bids by those companies to acquire new domain names such as ď.book,Ē ď.shopĒ and ď.movieĒ renewed fears among competitors that a powerful few will dominate the Internet marketplace of the future. (A: Well they already do.)
A slate of roughly 2,000 new Web suffixes, including ď.appĒ and ď.sex,Ē was revealed Wednesday by the nonprofit organization tasked with regulating domain names, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. (A: ICANN. Itís amazing too, that just came out of nowhere, by itself, like a nonprofit organization, that assigns you all your names and numbers, for everybody across the world.) The group announced last year that it would take applications for new domain names to foster growth and competition online. The new domains are scheduled to go into effect next year.
ďWeíre standing at the cusp of a new era of online innovation,Ē said Rod Beckstrom, president of the group, known as ICANN. (A: Iíll put this link up too.)
Another one too, is the Rothschilds just opened one of their private banks in Texas, USA. Back with more after this.
Hi folks. Weíre back Cutting Through The Matrix, talking about Rothschilds and the Bank of England and all that stuff. It says, be more competitive and make more money. Itís an ad put out by ENG Lending which is a division of the Bank of England.
Be More Competitive and Make More Money
(Dallas / Fort Worth) Loan Officers: Bank Of England Expanding Texas Office (Dallas - Fort Worth Area)
ENG Lending, a division of The Bank of England, a FDIC Chartered Bank, is expanding its mortgage operations in Texas. Our loan officers are provided a number of unique benefits: (A: Then they go through all the benefits, and of course they want WINNERS and all the rest of it. It tells you where theyíre opening up offices across other places too and lending to other states as well. So Iíll put this link up for you too, to let you see how the old enemies at one point are now [Alan laughing.] well in there. They always were well in there with their other banks that they have, that are well known as well actually with different names. Theyíve never actually been out of it in fact.)
Now, the BBC, it says thisÖ
Brussels plans European banking union from 2013 (A: Next year.)
(A: That was the point of all this Ďhyperí stuff and to amalgamate all the laws under the centralized bureau in Brussels and to give more power to Brussels, and to allow, again, the IMF to come in and theyíre to start doing every countryís books for them. I said that years ago and here it comes. They always create the crisis and hereís the real solution for it all. Always the same tricks isnít it?)
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso supports rapid implementation of the plan
bbc.co.uk / 12 June 2012
A single regulator to oversee banks across all 27 European Union states (A: Önations, that is...) could be in place as early as 2013 according to the European Commission.
A controversial new bank bailout fund financed by a tax on financial institutions is also planned. (A: In other words, weíre all in it together. One goes under then the rest of you bail them out. Itís great for the banks; they never lose a darn thing now you see.)
The proposal includes an EU-wide deposit guarantee scheme to protect savers in the event of a bank collapse.
The UK has said it would not sign up to a full banking union, suggesting it should only be for eurozone members.
The BBC understands a timetable for the plan will be agreed at a European Council Meeting on 28 and 29 June in Brussels.
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso supports rapid implementation of the plan with initial provisions, such as common bank supervision, being introduced as early as January 2013.
But, a commission spokesman was keen to point out that "talks between Mr Barroso and the other presidents [of the European Council, Eurogroup and European Central Bank] were in the early stages". (A: ...at the moment that is.)
So they want to, as I said a long time ago, want to come into the countries and take over all the fiscal agreements and arrangements and managing of all the so-called nation-states involved, exactly, exactly what The Royal Institute of International Affairs wanted a long, long time ago when they set up the IMF and the World Bank and the Bank for International Settlements. Itís all going exactly as they planned and outlined a hundred years ago. Isnít that something, eh? But they need all this crisis to make it happen.
And this article here too, is to do with applications for your iPhones. It saysÖ
(A: You can getÖ)
I Stalk Me 1.2 (A: ... software.)
I guess if youíre narcissistic and you like yourself so much you can actually download software - Iíll put the links up tonight - so you can actually stalk yourself and find out where youíve been all this time and have fun with that, if thatís what turns you on. I think people get turned on with awfully strange things these days. But thatís what they say, you know, everybodyís got their own thing. This other application, itís going to be great for stalkers though. It says...
New 'Girls Around Me' iPhone App Helps You Stalk Women
Girls Around Me scans for women who have checked in on Foursquare, so you can find her and tell her you found her on the internet.
nbcbayarea.com / Travis Andrews / Mar 31, 2012
(A: Iíll put this one up as well. Remember, that came out before, that Foursquare one that were responsible for another application; this must be an updated version.)
The app is made by a Russian company called SMS Services and there's a good chance the app may not be around for too much longer since Foursquare has taken action against it. (A: Must be cutting onto their turf.)
You know how it's totally cool and normal and appropriate to just show up somewhere because you know there's a girl there, at that very moment, who you think is cute, even if she doesn't happen to know you exist? Oh, wait. I think that's called stalking. And it's the premise behind the new iPhone app Girls Around Me.
The creepiest app I've personally ever heard of, Girls Around Me scans for women who have checked in on Foursquare. Once it finds ladies (who don't know you are a human being) (A: ...or that you even exist ...) in the area, it offers you their Facebook profiles, so you can have a whole lot to talk about when you show up where she is because you saw her picture on the Internet.
It should be noted the only connection between the app's users and these women is that they both use the Internet.
Stanford law lecturer Elizabeth Stark said, "This would be a very different application if it didn't link back to Facebook, which is the treasure trove of information. With that link, this app could easily be a 'let's stalk women' app." (A: Öor vice versa for that matter because everyoneís nuts.)
Foursquare spokeswomen Laura Covington said, "This is a violation of our API policy, so we've reached out to the developer and shut off their API access." Regardless, one can still buy the app from the iTunes store.
As much backlash as the app has seen, it does point out the inherent danger of posting your location on the Internet. Information is information. Once it's in a public place, it can be used in whatever way people choose. (A: And I guess thatís true, you know, if theyíre actually choosing or getting prompted by their hidden masters.)
Also tonight Iím putting up an article, itís quite interesting actually. Itís by the Council on Foreign Relations. Itís to do with the US and Israelís kind of partnership. Itís a piece put out, of damage control you might say, because thereís so much going on right now about what is this Ďspecial relationshipí that the US has with Israel. And no one wants to say, except, well itís been there for a while and itís nice, itís nice, and all that kind of fuzzy stuff but nothing concrete. I mean, is it a treaty, what is it? So they come out with this piece; Brzezinskiís on it, Kissingerís on it I think and they give their points of view, etc. and itís all lovey-dovey stuff, why the US should keep floating and financing Israel. And I still canít find anything concrete on it.

Iíll put that up once again because itís got quite interesting stuff about the House of Representatives and how theyíre using insider trading. Mind you, they passed a law recently to say that they could do that themselves but itís not for the general public. They passed it because they were all getting caught at it; thatís why they passed it. Itís quite something. What a world we live in, eh? What a world.
Now this article is pretty good too. Itís to do with drones. It says hereÖ
Patrick Cockburn: America is deluded by its drone-warfare propaganda
10 June 2012 / independent.co.uk
As the US and its allies ponder what to do about Syria, one suggestion advanced by the protagonists of armed intervention is to use unmanned drones to attack Syrian government targets. The proposal is a measure of the extraordinary success of the White House, CIA and Defense Department in selling the drone as a wonder weapon despite all the evidence to the contrary.
The attraction of the drone for President Obama and his administration five months before the presidential election is self-evident. The revelation that he personally selected targets from the top ranks of al-Qa'ida (A: ...which is nothing at all. Itís a meaningless name.) for assassination by remote control shows the President as tough and unrelenting in destroying America's enemies. The programme is popular at home because the cost appears not to be large and, most importantly, there are no American casualties. The media uncritically buys into claims of the weapon's effectiveness, conveniently diverting voters' attention from the US army's failure to defeat puny opponents in two vastly expensive campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Republicans cried foul, alleging that the administration is selectively leaking highly classified secrets to portray Obama as a man of decision untroubled by liberal qualms in his defence of his country. The White House expressed itself deeply shocked by such a claim of political opportunism, and last week the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, appointed two lawyers (A: ... I should have said Ďliarsí ...) to track down the leakers, though without giving them special powers to do so.
Almost unquestioned in all this is the utility of the drone strikes and whether they really are the wonder weapon they are claimed to be. After all, air forces have been over-selling precision bombing as a way of winning wars on the cheap since Lord Trenchard ran the RAF (A: ...Royal Air Force...) in the 1920s. Politicians of all nations have been attracted by new war-winning armaments or commando-type organisations. Examples include Churchill in the Second World War and President Kennedy, who favoured the Green Beret special units and helicopter-borne forces in Vietnam. The media has traditionally gobbled up and publicised tales of magically effective arms or the derring-do of elite detachments, often ignoring their lack of long-term military success.
The most striking but understated feature of the drone strikes in the North-west Frontier districts of Pakistan is that they could not take place without the co-operation of the Pakistani army and its all-powerful military intelligence branch, the ISI. Some government co-operation is essential in Yemen, too, though less so than in Pakistan because of the weakness of the Yemeni state.
The problem is that high-precision weapons still need ground-based intelligence to identify targets. In Pakistan, the ISI says privately that its agents provide the details without which the drones would not know whom to pursue and eliminate. The difficulty for those guiding the drones from command posts far away has not changed much since "precision bombing" in the Second World War or the far more accurate missile strikes in Iraq in 1991 and 2003.
So in other words, it goes into the fact that thereís more PR and nonsense, positive nonsense put out about it for PERCEPTIONíS sake, for the general public to think this is a magic weapon. And it isnít at all. It kills an awful lot of innocent people, as many articles have come out recently, in fact constantly, saying to us. But it doesnít really matter. Most folk donít care whoís getting killed just as long as itís not them. What an awful world we live in when thatís how people think, eh? Because thatís how people really do think... well Iím not getting killed, hasnít killed anybody I know. And the big eating machine of the world order IS coming around to your doorsteps, mind you, and eventually they WILL be killing. Because Iíve got articles here to do, from the British papers, about the American drones, thereís over 60 bases already set up IN the United States to deal with drones, at this moment. They already have that set up within the US, and theyíre expanding at one awful speed. And soon weíll be knowing what the Pakistanis have known for years, that when your children start getting killed, for those who still care about their own children, theyíll be howling in the streets.

Busted: Biotech Leader ĎSyngentaí (A: ...of GM corn or GE corn, as they call it.) Charged Over Covering Up Animal Deaths from GM Corn
naturalsociety.com / Anthony Gucciardi / June 15, 2012
(A: Well theyíve always known it kills animals, including man.)
The Leader Syngenta Charged Over Covering Up Animal Deaths. (A: They were covering up animal deaths from the law, from GM corn.)
In a riveting victory against genetically modified creations, a major biotech company known as Syngenta has been criminally charged for denying knowledge that its GM Bt corn actually kills livestock. Whatís more is not only did the company deny this fact, but they did so in a civil court case that ended back in 2007. The charges were finally issued after a long legal struggle against the mega corp initiated by a German farmer named Gottfried Gloeckner whose dairy cattle died after eating the Bt toxin and coming down with a Ďmysteriousí illness.
Grown on his own farm from 1997 to 2002, the cows on the farm were all being fed exclusively on Syngentaís Bt 176 corn by the year 2000. It was around this time that the mysterious illnesses began to emerge among the cattle population. Syngenta paid Gloeckner 40,000 euros in an effort to silence the farmer, however a civil lawsuit was brought upon the company. Amazingly, 2 cows ate genetically modified maize (now banned in Poland over serious concerns) and died. (A: So, I mean, the maize is killing them as well.) During the civil lawsuit, however, Syngenta refused to admit that its GM corn was responsible. In fact, they went as far as to claim having no knowledge whatsoever of harm.
The case was dismissed and Gloeckner, the farmer who launched the suit, was left thousands of euros in debt. And thatís not all; Gloeckner continued to lose many cows as a result of Syngentaís modified Bt corn. After halting the use of GM feed in 2002, Gloeckner attempted a full investigation with the Robert Koch Institute and Syngenta involved. The data of this investigation is still unavailable to the public, and only examined one cow. (A: ...during the whole trial.) In 2009, however, the Gloeckner teamed up with a German action group known as BŁndnis Aktion Gen-Klage and to ultimately bring Syngenta to the criminal court.
Using the testimony of another farmer whose cows died after eating Syngenta product, Gloeckner and the team have charged the biotech giant for the death of over 65 cows, withholding knowledge of the death-link, and holding the corporation liable for not registering the cattle deaths. The team is even charging Hans-Theo Jahmann, the German head of Syngenta, personally over the withholding of knowledge. (A: So thatís the first one to actually win, and I hope a whole lot comes soon too.)
Remember, the people are getting this stuff too. Apart from that itís getting into the cattle, thatís the food chain, then you eat it. No wonder folk are dropping dead all over the place with strokes and things. And they really are, folks. When you talk to people who are in that business of harvesting organs theyíll tell you that, itís one of the biggest things theyíve got going: young people dropping dead of strokes, not on drugs or anything else. And thereís no inquiry as to why. Itís a non-crisis.
A few years ago I mentioned about the big agenda. The big agenda, remember too, was to destroy especially the systems of Britain and the US and a few other countries. And certain people from certain organizations were brought in at the end of World War II, given full power by Presidents and Prime Ministers to start destroying the culture, in case it ever went fascist; that was the excuse that was given. And primarily to the Labour Party this was entrusted. I mentioned this article a few years ago, it was talking about Tony Blair and Jack Straw who came out, eventually they were found out that they opened the doors wide to immigration. And they actually said in other articles - which I have here, I might put up tonight too - that their plan was to destroy the British culture so much and so devastatingly that it couldnít ever come back to what it was; It would be finished forever. So this article goes back and it saysÖ

Well, they achieved their plan and itís done; Britainís done as far as that goes. So this is from Friday the 15th 2012, June 15, thatís for tomorrow; this is their paper-just-come-out sort of thing. But what Iím saying is it first came out in 2009 with a similar article and I remember the right-hand man of Tony Blair came out and mentioned it too, when he says he was ORDERED to do this TO destroy the culture of the country once and for all. That was the whole purpose of it. Iíll put this link up for those who want to read it. And save it too because these kind of articles are just disappearing. They donít last long; they disappear, never to be seen again. And you can tell people down the road what happened, like youíre trying to tell them history, but if you have no evidence to show them, they wonít believe you. They simply wonít believe you folks. Now hereís the music coming in and Iíll be back with more after this break.
Hi folks, Iím back Cutting Through The Matrix. And just to finish off Iíll go back to this drone thing because it saysÖ
The US military operated 66 bases for unmanned drone aircraft on American soil (A: Thatís the military, right. Thereís more with the cops too.) and has 22 more planned across the country.
A new map released by Public Intelligence, a nonprofit group dedicated publishing public government data, reveals the ever-growing footprint of the Department of Defense's newest weapon.
The bases span the entire country -- 33 states either have a base already or are slated to have one. (A: Ö pretty soon.)
The existence of a base doesn't necessarily mean drones are stationed there.
Wired Magazine reports some bases are remote cockpits, where soldiers fly the unmanned craft in the skies over Yemen and Afghanistan. (A: Well they know where they are already; theyíve been out for years.) Others are training facilities for prospective drone pilots. Others serve as depots where servicemen analyses data the remote-controlled spy planes bring back.
The bases house mostly smaller spy drones like the RQ-7 Shadow, the RQ-11 Raven and the Wasp III, which has a wingspan of less than two and a half feet.
Six of the bases are home to the larger Predator and Reaper drove, which can carry missiles.
Public Intelligence cobbled together its map of military bases from a host of public documents, including a 2011 US Air Force presentation on the subject.
Despite how extensive the list is, it might not even be complete, the group's Michael Haynes told Wired.
'It is very likely that there are more domestic drone activities not included in the map, but it is designed to provide an approximate overview of the widespread nature of Department of Defense activities throughout the US,' he said.
The list also doesn't include any domestic agencies that are using drones. (A: Thatís true. There are so many agencies now, eh; theyíre all falling over into each otherís territories and having little wars amongst themselves, as well, for power.)
In April, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, another advocacy group, released a list of universities, local police departments and federal departments that have received permits to fly drones in the United States.
The military is prohibited from using the drones to spy on Americans in the US. However, Wired reports that if the Air Force 'accidentally' records Americans while spy drones are making training flights, it can keep the surveillance footage for up to 90 days -- and use it as intelligence data. (A: So yes they can spy on you and thatís just the military branch of it too.)
So weíre living in what was once pushed out as sci-fi, science fiction. Science fiction actually prepared you for all of this. You saw this kind of future, with a small elite with all the black-clad uniformed troops, the kind of Star Wars type troops, that would be keeping people living in rubble and always attacking them and so on. Thatís the common, common theme out of countless science fiction novels and movies. And here we are. Itís coming down the pike. Youíre not quite in the rubble yet; some folk are, actually, when theyíve lost everything or theyíve been plundered by the banks. But thereís more rubble to come, obviously, and thereís more crashes to come. You understand, youíre not going to go back to the way things were. I hope you really understand that. And Iíve talked to so many people who have had nervous breakdowns over that concept. They canít let go of some 1970s or 1980s or even í90s version of how America used to be, before the bank crashes demolished everyone.
And remember, the agenda is not to go back there anyway because weíre now to go into the age of austerity. Austerity means every penny that you used to spend on little things that kept you happy, gave you some kind of worth after slogging a month in a plant or a factory or whatever you did, you rewarded yourself, well you wonít be able to do that shortly, because it must go back in energy taxes and all the rest of it.
Tonight Iím also putting up one from Australia, a video on the laws, the gag laws now that you canít say certain things on television. You are FORBIDDEN to speak on certain things. Iíll put that up tonight. Very interesting talk on this video.
