The Extinction War

I've got a new fiction project, The Extinction War, which I'm putting up for free (naturally). I'll be posting a new part every day or so.

Without giving too much away, it's a coming of age story set in the near future, the tale of a handful of extraordinary youths finding their way in the midst of the last war mankind shall ever fight, a war in which rapidly evolving technologies vie with apocalypse; regardless of which force wins, what emerges when the dust clears will not be human.

Here's a taste:

Steve killed for the first time the day after he joined the army.

There had been no delay for training, or even to be outfitted and shipped off to a far foreign country. That was the beauty of the Telepresence Cavalry: the Pentagon could cherry-pick their recruits from the nation’s top gamers, already as well-trained and combat ready as they’d ever be thanks to years of pretend violence. The robots they’d be riding herd on, meanwhile, were already in the battlespace, packed up tight inside ground effect carriers floating off the coast, just a short flight from deployment.

Benjamin Fulford: Ways to Breathe New Life Into Japan

You can send Ben Fulford money by PayPal now. I take it if you email him he'll tell you how to proceed:

Oh, and he's going to be selling his books online.

Now to the news:

First posted 27 Feb 2008

In present-day Japan, with a single group of winners excluded, their are a lot of people whose livelihood is in trouble. The current government doesn't have any ways to help them. However, I don't think helping them is all that difficult of a problem.

Japan, as a nation, lacks an overall goal. If first of all a goal is created, and people are inspired towards that goal, every problem would be settled.

As for one proposal, it would be a good thing for Japan to be the world's top country in every field. Japan's $6 trillion of foreign currency reserves, currently pickling in salt, could be put to use employing capable minds from around the world to find ways of giving Japan it's genki* back.

For instance, I think it would be great to make Japan the number one country in the world for harmony with nature. The Japanese cedars that occupy 5 percent of Japan's soil - and choke the life from the forests - should all be logged and sold as lumber to China. After logging the cedar animals would be able to return to a hospitable natural ecosystem. Then the concrete that buries the rivers of the metropolises could be broken, and those rivers turned into flowing gardens full of fish and small animals.

Up until now, Japan has been sacrificing nature to development. As to the goal of Japan from here on out, if Japan could work as much as possible towards augmenting life on Earth, that would be wonderful. On top of that, it would also be good to aim for a prosperous life.

* Genki is a Japanese word that's hard to translate directly into English. Pep, energy, spirit, vitality, those sorts of meanings to it, but the word's even used in greetings.

Thoughts on A New World Order

We all know that nightmare, right? A One World Government with the world divided up into semi-autonomous economic zones, controlled by a single central bank with single currency for all, with everyone under constant surveillance and ... well, like I said, you all know the nightmare.

So, here's the thing: what if it doesn't have to be a nightmare? Allow me to play devil's advocate (hey, it's what I do).

You know, a single world government is probably inevitable, at some point. Instant communications and high-speed transportation can't help but weave the world more closely together, and that sort of process only leads in one direction. But what if the government that emerged on the other side was a democratic republic, one that gave every citizen a voice and inalienable rights? The dream (well, my dream) would be a parliamentary population, an ongoing global senate in which every citizen is a senator, able to vote not just for people but for treaties, for laws, for regulations. People often sneer at the idea of individual people being given the same say in legislative matters as are elected officials (though not so often as they used to, I've noticed....) The fact is, that if the people could decide the law for themselves, most of the problems that plague society would vanish rapidly.

The War in Iraq? Over, and years ago. Ditto Afghanistan. The War on Terror as well. The War on Drugs would in all likelihood have been history a decade ago, and would certainly be over today. The tax code would be marvelously simplified, as there is no question but that a series of arcane tomes longer than most encyclopedias is universally despised and feared more than any text since the Necronomicon.

Problems of political corruption would be greatly ameliorated as well. Bribing a few congressmen is one thing; bribing the entire population, quite another. Even a bribe that amounted to just a few hundred dollars a head would quickly run into the hundreds of billions. Should any group come to feel that such a bribe is necessary, the bribing would at least have the virtue of being a very public thing, rather than the furtive scrambling that takes place now.

Oh, yes, and one other (and very important) thing: participatory democracy would be very resistant against the psychopathic personality types that currently dominate the legislative houses of the world (not to mention the governments of almost every previous society). Psychopaths are, after all, only 1% of the population, and in a direct democracy they would be greatly outnumbered.

A virtual democracy might seem an impossible dream, but achieving it would be surprisingly easy. All it would take would be a repudiation of the serving government (on the grounds of numerous actions voiding the constitutional contract), and the signing of an alternate constitution that at first will apply to a sort of virtual state. New, virtual laws, existing in parallel to the existing legal structures but not yet in force, are then created in a wiki-congress composed of anyone who signs the contract. As the body of virtual law grows, attention will naturally be drawn to it, at first as a curiosity if nothing else. The evident sanity of the virtual law, in comparison with the rampant contradictions, injustices, and outright abuses of the existing code will become apparent to many, and implicit in that sanity the wisdom of direct democracy will impress itself into the minds that see it.

Now, the great thing about a virtual democracy is the scalability of it, it's almost fractal nature. The challenge to the current system doesn't have to be direct, not at first. Start by applying the philosophy at small scales - neighborhood associations, unions, clubs, and corporations. Think of this as planting seeds in the polity's connective tissue. Once participatory governance has begun to pervade the background of life, a push could be made to bring urban governments under a similar system of governance, in effect chewing giant political holes in the organs of the state. From there, it's a smooth (though possibly more abrupt than expected) progression towards a global democracy that hollows out the pre-existing control grid until the brittle shell finally cracks and what I like to call the demosphere is born.

Until time travel is invented, I won't be able to go back to the Cretaceous and hunt dinosaurs, and none of you will be able to turn back the clock to the constitutional order of 1776. That contract was publicly broken and discarded by the elites back in 2000, and what lip service it's received since has been increasingly strained. Of late, it's grown perfunctory and often downright sarcastic. So, it's gone and done with; best it be laid aside as a memory cherished by all who love freedom, for a memory it has become. Memories can be learned from, but they cannot inspire, for inspiration requires vision ... and a vision that inspires the masses to take their destinies into their own hands might spur change faster than any of us imagine possible.

Benjamin Fulford: Is American Debt Waste Paper?

First Posted 25 Feb 2008

Recently information's been reaching my ears from various places that America might be thinking of declaring Force Majeure.

Regarding it's present debt which has climbed to roughly 1.2 trillion dollars, were it to be announced that it could not be physically repaid, the countries of Asia and the Near and Middle East might be given to understand that they aren't going to get paid.

But if such a reckless thing was done the country will call America would collapse in an instant. The natural thing would be for an international meeting to be held, at which the system in place ever since 1945 would be yanked, and the debt forgiven ... but before that could be done, America would have to make a promise to never again wage aggressive war, and to eternally bend all efforts towards removing poverty, environmental destruction, and war from the Earth. Following that, with the new capital that would enter the country, the Pentagon would have to restructure in order to develop countermeasures against poverty and environmental destruction.

Benjamin Fulford: Exposing 9/11 With the Cooperation of European Politicians

First posted 23 Feb 2008

Japan's politicians are gradually beginning to realize the truth about 9/11.

Through Yukuhisa Fujita's presentation in the Diet, recognition of what America did on 9/11 is spreading through other Diet members. From here on the Democratic Party (ed: the Japanese Democratic Party, or Minshuto) would like to advance a cooperative plan: in concert with Europe, to demand of America that those factions that were related to 9/11 are eliminated.

By the way, the Diet members are focusing on the criminals of 9/11, the defense contractors and oil interests. Most of the diligent American military was tricked by the Pentagon, and has no relation to the matter.

Benjamin Fulford Bleg

Daaaamn! A few days of no internet/not being home so much has me behind a bit. It doesn't help that Fulford's been busier than usual these past few days.

Oh, and by the way, Fulford wrote a long post asking for money. I didn't have the energy to translate it at the time (4 days ago) and I don't feel like translating it now, given as there are six newsy posts to get through. At any rate, if anyone reads this and feels like tossing Fulford a few bucks - gathering information like he does costs money, after all, and most of the books he wrote over the past year were panned by critics and bounced by bookstores (a few not even published), so of he's been tight for cash recently - given all that, if you want to help him out a bit here are the relevant details:

Questions are being asked about what the Self Defense Force itself should be. Due to things like this, there's extreme worry in this time that the organization can protect the country from invasions.

On top of this, it took over 90 minutes - far too slow - for the information about this incident to reach the Prime Minister, raising questions about SDF morals as well. Memories of last year's missile procurement scandal are still new but, in practicality it's not just North Korean missiles, but little fishing boats that can't be stopped.

"Aegis Cruiser Missile Ambush": What's on the Other Side of Reports of Success?

First posted 20 Dec 2007

A few days ago reports came in that a Naval Self Defense Force Aegis cruiser successfully ambushed a missile.

The circumstances would have been completely different if this was, indeed, an experiment. In the case of a test, time and place would have been accurately communicated, and this was not in fact the case.

In the first place America is using North Korea as an accomplice. Taepodongs are being launched in order to palm off some missiles on Japan. It'd be nice to know how much of that one trillion yen [about 10 billion dollars] is bribe money in the pocket of the officials (ed: I'm guessing there. He said sensei-tachi, but I'm pretty sure he's not talking about Ms. Sumiko who teachers 3rd graders.)

And so, on what points should we consider him to be a traitor? I'd like some concrete things to ask. I'm going to check directly with the man himself.

I'm also taking any questions anyone might have for the Governor.

Vote by Not Voting, And Do It At the Top of Your Lungs

Let's face it: Ron Paul's done his bit. He got in front of the camera, he energized a movement, and he did some educating. And now he's back in Texas licking his wounds, and what did you expect? That the first assault we sent up against the fortress, the forlorn hope we sent charging towards it's front gates in full view of it's cannons and kill-zones, was going to prevail?

This brilliant, bitchy rant by Carolyn Baker over at The People's Voice really brings the current electoral situation into sharp and painful focus. Who's she going to vote for? The same person her cousin is:

"Me vote?" she replied.

"No, not when my only choices are between Satan and the devil."

That about sums it up, no? There really is no point in voting. No matter who who vote for, they're just another employee of the corporatocracy, with no more independence or power to change things than a fry cook at your local McDonalds (and considerably less desire to, to boot.)

There's no use in just a few people sitting at home grumbling about the pointlessness of casting a ballot that will be ignored anyway. Where's the fun in that? No, what's needed is a voter strike, millions of people in the streets loudly and angrily refusing to vote. If the 2008 election is notable primarily for a nationwide protest too big to ignore, against everything the system stands for, everything it has done, is doing and is planning to do, and if along with that voter participation is driven down into the range of 20%, it won't matter who wins. Whatever squats in the Oval Office will not be able to claim a mandate from the voters, not with any sort of seriousness.

It doesn't matter who you vote for, it matters what you vote for; and if you want to vote against the system, the only way to do it is by not voting.

Benjamin Fulford: The Infowar is an Urgent Subject

First Posted at 19 Feb 2008 11:30 AM
Cross-posted to

At the beginning of the Age of Asia the Infowar is becoming a pressing subject. The world's mass media (particularly that of Japan and the Anglosphere) are insulting Asia with their discharge of bullshit information.

In recent years, real journalists in the Anglosphere have been fired, and what's left over is mostly nothing but people brainwashed by the CIA. That the mass media is under the control of five old men who caused 9/11 is something that the rest of the world has to be informed of, and quickly, so they can be given warning of the crackdown to come.

At the same time in order to support the remaining real journalists, it's necessary to boycott the mass media; this would really get the opposition groaning, and it would focus advertising revenue into the few real real outlets.

Ed: I posted the following as a comment at his site, but this is my blog so I get to include it as part of the main piece here Probably a bit more eloquently than it will appear on his site, too, as I'm writing in my mother tongue here....

It's not just the mass media's news that should be boycotted, it's their entertainment, their movies and their television and even their music. It's a massive revenue stream for them, and taking it away would be a serious kick in the nuts financially. Now I'm not necessarily saying that you have to stop consuming it all together, just stop paying for it. Christ, man, that's what bittorrent's for!

But you know, even if you can get it for free you should stop using it anyways. Most of it contains messages in the story or the lyrics designed to brainwash you, and as the police state begins to clamp down it'll get steadily more dangerous (hell, their files are probably already good enough that if they wished to use it as a pretext, they could round up vast numbers of people for violating copyright.) And anyways, open source software and creative commons licenses are manufacturing more content than can be consumed in any given day, and more and more of it as time goes on. The mass media's entertainments are already unnecessary!

Benjamin Fulford: The Problem of Asian Regional Conflicts

Original post 13:17 18 Feb 2008
Loosely Translated 03:00 19 Feb 2008
Crossposted to

A lot of the regional wars that splinter Asia are manufactured by Western secret societies. In order to see the birth of a New Asian Age, I'd like to see a lot of these problems resolved.

First of all between North and South Korea, where the plan for unity is to remove Golden Justice Sun (ed: his name was written in kanji, and Korean names have non-standard pronunciations which forced me to dig a bit to find out that this is, apparently, what Kim Jong Il's name means in Korean) from power and dress him up as a symbolic king. As to Taiwan and China, America can't continue protecting Taiwan militarily, so while Taiwan still has power I'd like to see them start negotiations with China. On the Chinese side, powers close to independence could be granted, and experiments with networked democracy could be begun. With Tibet, the Dalai Lama is a powerful symbol of peace; a conversation with him is necessary in order to take that symbol back and really get along well.

There's also the problem of Japan's northern territories, eternally contested with Russia; it would be good, I think, if a Japanese-Russian free trade zone or casino were to be established, a position for trade and pleasure.

At any rate if the various regional conflicts can be resolved, Asia will be a more unified place.

The American Autogenocide and the Depopulation of the World

Most bloggers throw out their thoughts in short, rapid-fire bursts, with posts that are a few sentences or a few paragraphs long. Which makes sense, because the attention of your bog-standard web-surfer begins to wander after their brain's processed the first few phonemes. This doesn't allow much space for complex thought inside a single post, so bloggers who want to communicate something more nuanced usually rely on lots of short posts that, over time, will give the reader who keeps coming back for more a clear idea of what the blogger wants to say.

Someone evidently failed to get the message out to Martha Rose Crow, who in her own words is

a feminist, socialist, poet and writer living in the Netherlands. A social economist and cultural scientist, she holds four university degrees in Marketing, Management, Communication and Information Media (master’s degree).

In addition to the above impressive resume, Ms. Crow maintains (to use the term loosely) a blog by the title of American Autogenocide. There are precisely two posts at American Autogenocide, but each of those posts is very, very long; just reading the first 'The Nine Stages of American Autogenocide' (I haven't had the energy for the second, 'De-Population of the World Is Real') took me about an hour, an eternity in web-time. The very fact that I actually bothered to spend that hour tells you that this might be worth your time to read, though.

Crow details a process of silent - and, she feels, deliberate - extermination of America's poor and disenfranchised minorities; essentially, genocide not with gas chambers and mass graves, but with mass poverty and destructive social programs, designed with the purpose of thinning out the herd so there will be fewer 'useless eaters' around (useless because the dumb labor, all the elite feels them to be good for, is all being automated away.)

I talked about the problem of suppressed energy technologies, how clean energy technologies have already allowed the construction of bases on the moon (ed: that might be a mistranslation), and then started discussing matters related to space. If we've got that much money, then we should already have dealt with the world's problems, one way or another. When people are starving to death, that's no time to be thinking about space.

Benjamin Fulford: For the Arrival of the Age of Peace

Loosely translated from the original Japanese 17 Feb 2008
Crossposted to

According to the New York Times, the Pentagon has changed its fundamental strategy. From now on, it appears that they're putting increased importance on soft power, using their power for such things as economic support and nation building. Maybe they've finally figured out that the world's problems will never be solved by the old ways.

The Pentagon's also created a new African headquarters. It looks like China is probably going to start aiding Africa as well; the sense of an impending crisis is shared by all, it seems.

Meanwhile China's created a new Energy Ministry. I'd like to think that this means they're throwing their weight behind the effort to create an economy that doesn't need oil. The Japanese government has also been irresponsibly neglectful when it comes to hydrogen energy, magnets (ed: closest I could come, not sure what he's talking about there) and other such energy technologies that have been sealed away; all of these should be opened up. It's crazy to seal the development of mankind for the purpose of preserving political power and influence.

Chomsky: An Agent of the CIA?

It's hard to know what to believe sometimes. Not too long ago I read an article that raised the question of whether or not Timothy Leary was a CIA agent (when I say 'raised the question', I'm not being facetious: the author himself wasn't sure what to believe, and the result is an article that really makes you think. Definitely recommended.)

And now, through a link posted by a friend on the Infowars SNS, comes this damning denunciation of Noam Chomsky: Controlled Asset of the New World Order.

Now, accusations like this fly at almost everyone. Even Ron Paul and Alex Jones have been accused of being part of the New World Order, though the evidence is usually pretty shaky, based more on paranoia than on any solid factual basis. It's inevitable, in a world where secret societies - intelligence agencies, crime syndicates, fraternal brotherhoods, and other sub-species - wield so much behind-the-scenes power. In the end, though, the only test that can be relied upon is an evaluation of actions and words, and Chomsky fails that test. From the article:

Since 9-11, he has steadfastly refused to discuss the evidence of government complicity and prior knowledge. Furthermore he claims that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Bilderberg Committee, and Trilateral Commission are "nothing organizations." When critiquing poverty, he never mentions the Federal Reserve and their role in manipulating the cycle of debt.

Similarly, he claims the CIA was never a rogue organization and is an innocent scapegoat; that JFK was killed by the lone assassin Lee Harvey Oswald; that the obvious vote fraud in 2004 did not occur; and that peak oil is real and good for humanity.

What he does advocate is population control, gun control, support for U.N.E.S.C.O., and the end of national sovereignty in favor of a one-world government under the UN. In other words, the major goals of the New World Order.

Chomsky's role in propaganda paradigm is much like that of Karl Marx: to present a false liberation ideology which actually supports the desired solutions of the elite. Marx pointed out the inequalities and brutality of capitalism and then advocated a one world bank, army, and government with the abolition of private property and religion; in other words, the major goals known of the New World Order.

Leveraging Social Networks for Liberation

Alex Jones is one smart cookie. The man understands the internet better than a good number of journalists; just witness the way he gives away all (that's all, as in all 18) of his movies away for free on google video, and winks at copies being traded over bittorrent. He knows the corporate media will never, ever promote his work, because every person who encounters it is smacked awake like a hungover frat boy who's sleeping in on an exam day. Sure, he sells his wares through his various websites, but once again he understands that what you're really paying for isn't the information per se, it's the quality with which it's presented and the speed with which it's available.

And now, he's launched a new website that's built along social networks, It's got all the bells and whistles, with groups and friends lists and blogs and messaging, a veritable petri dish for the revolution. Go on over, sign yourself up, and stop just reading shit and pounding at your keyboard with tears of frustration stinging your eyes: put that anger to use and get involved! I'm already there, of course (taking my own advice, naturally) and I'll be cross-posting much (not all, but a lot) of what I post here at my new infowars blog.

Benjamin Fulford: Open the Door on Sealed Alternative Energy

14 Feb 2008

The other day I was talking with a researcher who works with solar batteries. When I asked him why it was that solar batteries weren't more widely distributed, the reason he gave me was, "Because silicon's expensive." But the raw material for silicon is nothing but sand! However you think of it, pressure is being applied to pull the competition down.

The steep jump in the price of oil, a monopolized energy source, isn't going to stop. This year the price finally exceeded USD100/bl. Compared to the USD10/bl basis of just ten years ago, the price has jumped up by a factor of ten.

If the oil industry isn't made, one way or another to give some concession, the advancement of mankind is bound to slow down.

On the American Presidential Election

There's a massive difference between public opinion polls and the results of the presidential primaries. American democracy has been mutilated by electronic voting machines.

At the same time in California, in whichever district you look at the Republican candidates are exactly the same. In farming districts as well as wealthy areas, in districts dominated by completely different racial groups, the results have been too unnatural to believe.

If electronic voting machines are introduced to Japan as well, it'll lead to a bad, dangerous situation.

In America it looks like the battling candidates are following a script that's been written for them. And something unusual seems to have happened to Ron Paul, the candidate who received such tremendous support from the internet. Up until recently he was persistently claiming, "We need a new investigation into 9/11," however, recently he abruptly began to declare on television that "I don't think the government caused 9/11." This change in his speech is extremely unnatural, so much so that it looks like nothing so much as that he's being made to say this. He's also more or less pulled out of the race. He's probably either had under serious pressure or threat, nothing else really makes sense.

100th Post

What a long strange trip it's been. I've been blogging for years now, in fits and starts ... you can see links to everything I've ever written in the sidebar, and man, have I ever come a long way, mentally. Almost every opinion I've ever held has changed, drastically, especially over the past few months. People who know me well have been nothing less than shocked by the transformation that's taken place inside my head.

I don't really know why I keep coming back to it. For the most part it's toiling in obscurity ... but I've never really written anything with the explicit aim of being read. Even when I was a kid, I had the writing bug. I used to spend hours, every day, writing science fiction stories on the family computer, and with no internet the only people who read them were my parents (who were generally baffled by them), my teachers (when I wrote the stories for English class, and they were likewise baffled), and sometimes my friends (who liked them, but then I only showed them the good ones.) At any rate, I suppose being read by a few people a day is better than being read by none.

I've been writing for years, off and on, and I expect I'll be writing for years to come. I'll probably be writing when I'm on my deathbed. And maybe by then I'll have figured out why I do it....

Guide to the New World Order

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has hastily offered support to the idea of Japan, India, Brazil and Africa becoming standing members of the UN Security Council.

[Once again I'm giving a different link from what was in the original post. Fulford linked to this article at the Mainichi Shinbun, which is of course in Japanese.]

Now why is it that only now is this offer, postponed for 6 decades, being made?

As expected, Westerners cannot help but accept that their exclusive control of the world has come to an end. And maybe there's just a little impatience as well, due to the collapse of the American dollar.

I've got a different plan. I think it would be best to divide the world into seven regions. 1) China, 2) Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, etc 3) India, 4) the Islamic World, 5) Europe, 6) Africa, and 7) North and South America.

These seven regions would have the right to veto within their own regions, decided by majority. If there are any problems they can be decided in the International Court. Also, a single central bank for all seven regions would be established. If this were done various global problems could be deftly addressed.

At any rate, due to the collapsing dollar, and the rise of the Age of Asia, the way the world moves is changing.

G7 Draws to a Close, and It's All Complete Nonsense

The Tokyo G7 conference a few days ago regarding the global economy was, I think, complete nonsense.

In the first place, without China or Russia participating, it just doesn't have the clout it used to. The functionality of the G7 structure itself is impaired.

If the G7 is the 'place to discuss real intentions', their talk should be more pragmatic. For instance, "The reason the country called 'America' is collapsing is because the should have saved and exported more", or "A substitute for oil should be quickly liberalized."

Also, "The American dollar's function as the reserve currency is dying", is something I'd also like them to accept. A unified world currency is necessary. However, how that currency is made is important, as is ensuring that it's distribution is open and transparent. The currency system we have now, through which powerful people manage the world in secrecy, is a cancer upon the Earth.

What the Hell Are the Americans Scheming, Cutting Those Undersea Cables?

The news is saying that nine undersea internet cables [ed: link added by me, not part of the original post] have been cut in the area of Asia and the Near and Middle East.

The official explanation is that a ship's anchor is the source of the problem, but with nine cables in separate places being cut almost simultaneously, it's strange now matter how you think of it.

I've got to say this looks like the American's are scheming to do something, don't you think? Iran is going to be opening up an oil bourse selling in non-US dollars pretty soon, which Saudi Arabia might use too, and maybe there's a relationship with this.

With the American dollar losing it's status as the world's pivotal currency, a cornered America is playing a childish prank. This is the kind of thing countries occupied by the criminal American organization understand all too well.

The Damaged Cables

Cryptogon generously provides us with this map of the five damaged cables.

Yep, definitely done by an anchor. No question.

Oh, and apropos of nothing, I've got some farmland on Baffin Island for you, if you're interested.

Snowing in Tokyo

It is now snowing for the 4th time in the last two weeks, and man is it ever coming down. This is not normal weather for Tokyo, not at this time of year.

The next time someone mentions 'global warming' to me, I may punch them.

As someone who smokes more than is good for him - and enjoys the filthy habit more or less unapologetically - please permit me a moment of malicious retributive glee.

Restaurants in Mississippi may start banning fat people.

After enduring the smoking ban, that forced me out into the cold in order to have a smoke - a ban enforced by overzealous health fascists who even banned tarp-covered, gas-lamp-heated patios as being 'indoor' areas (de facto smoking areas that anyone from Toronto will dimly recall sprouting like mushrooms in the winter following the smoking ban, only to be culled by control freak health inspectors enraged that the spirit of the law was being skillfully evaded) - along with the po-faced hand-waving of non-smokers whenever they had the misfortune to walk by me on the street ... well, let me just say this:

I have for some time been of the opinion that if you don't want to pay for my emphysema? Hell, that's cool. I don't want to pay for your adult-onset diabetes. Moreover, if my smoke offends your sensitive nostrils, well, lard-bottom, your cellulite offends my delicate eyes, and there's no inherent reason why your aesthetics should prevail over mine. And as we're seeing, the health nazis seem to agree.

Not so great now that they're are after you, now is it? Worse, really. All I have to endure is an hour or so of mild discomfort and accompanying irritability, between parking my ass at the table and stepping out for a smoke. You won't even be allowed to eat in public. Enjoy your smoke-free TV dinners, butterball; I know I'll enjoy not having to look at your fat ass (I could not look, true, but let's face it: not looking is as hard as pulling one's eyes away from a train wreck.)

Oh, I know shouldn't gloat. What's being done to you fatasses is no more ethical than what's been done to us smokers. In truth, I'd much rather we could live and let live, but in the meantime, I really just can't help but laugh at your ass. Because you know what's more embarrassing than lighting up and being told that it's a no-smoking zone? Walking into the Denny's with your wife and kids, and having the manager step forward with an apologetic look on his face and a tape measure in his hand.

Akiro Ootani's Goodbye Party

At the end of last year the famous media producer Akiro Ootani died; recently, I attended his goodbye party.

He was responsible for many famous TV shows, and after retirement he made various plays about the Meiji Restoration in order to encourage politicians. The actors concentrated on members of the Liberal Democratic Party, and every time I was given a role, too.

Right up until the last moment he used every bit of his life force and his money for the sake of all.

They're saying the cause of death was suicide, but numerous riddles remain.

People like him, who devote themselves to their fellow man, are, I think, treasures of all mankind.

British Army Training the Taliban

Good god. The British were planning to build a training camp for the Taliban. You'll have to scroll down a bit ... for some silly reason the top of the page is crowded with links.

And Then There Were Five....

I won't add to the growing storm of speculation over what, exactly, is going on with those undersea cables, or why they're being cut. I'll just say this: five cables makes it pretty goddamn obvious that this is intentional.

Smoking Mirrors

I usually link to individual posts, but ever once in a while I find someone so outstanding that I just have to say, go read everything you can. This guy (or gal, but the authorial voice is very male) writes like an righteously enraged Kung Fu master of the English language, a blind swordsman who's drifted into a corrupt town, had a look around, and is now taking names and kicking ass out of pure disgust with the gangsters who control the weak, frightened, and pathetic creatures that scurry out of the way every time the capo and his goons go on their rounds.

I present to you Les Visibles, the nom de guerre of the mind behind Smoking Mirrors.

Now git over there. Nothing I write here can be half so interesting.

Is America Going to Attack Japan with an Earthquake Weapon?

According to information from the Inagawa Gang's leadership [ed: that's a massive gang operating in Tokyo, with a membership of 5100. Link to Wikipedia page.], America is threatening to hit Kanagawa with an earthquake around the end of the month. After that, in March or April, it seems they're saying the attack will escalate to hit Chiba and other areas around Tokyo.

In the event that this is carried out, although I've urged restraint up until now, I'll call upon the Asian secret society to execute their plan to assassinate members of the Illuminati.

Somehow, for the sake of everyone on Earth, the murderer's in the American military must be stopped as soon as possible.

Earthquake weapons might sound a little crazy, but there have been rumors of something called a scalar weapon, originally developed by Nikola Tesla, which can trigger seismic activity. A search turns up lots of interesting links.

Fractal Africa

Wow. I really should keep up with those TEDtalks videos.

This one is just fascinating: Ron Eglash, an 'ethno-mathematician', spent a year traveling Africa, where he discovered that almost every African village is constructed, quite consciously, according to precise fractal algorithms, repeating all the way from the village as a whole down to the arrangement of pots in a room. And it's not just their villages: their art and even their divination practices use fractal patterning.

I remember when I was in uni, I was arguing with one of the foreign development kids, and insisting that Africa (well, sub-Saharan Africa) never had a 'civilization', exactly. I was really just trying to push her buttons, but man, what a thick-skulled idiot I can be.

The Funky Guerrilla War Being Fought By Paris' Army of Hard Truth Soldiers

Anyone who knows anything about me knows I've never been much into hiphop. Oh, it's not that I dislike it - maturity has brought me a long way from my teenage hatred of anything that wasn't played on electric guitars - it's just that I never really got into it. White boys listening to hiphop always struck me as kind of silly, especially when they got right into it and started dressing up like gangstas and tryin' to front like they was from the hood, know wha' I'm sayin'? Metal, punk, trance, drum 'n' bass ... things like that have always been more to my taste. The closest I ever got to rap was Rage Against the Machine.

I could respect hiphop though, at least the older stuff, Public Enemy and Tupac and Biggy; the world play is right up there with Tennyson and Walt Whitman, and you could tell, when you listened to it, that it was real, music that came straight from the heart. The more modern stuff, the kind that came to dominate over the past ten years or so, is an emaciated shadow of what was being made in the 90s, real artists replaced by interchangeable pod people rapping hollowly about getting high, getting rich and fucking ... soulless muzak, corrupted by money and subverted to serve corporate interests. I could see that even without being much of a fan of the form; the same thing happened to every genre since the first vinyl record was printed, in a cycle that's grown as familiar and predictable as the passage of the seasons: raw and fresh from the streets and the clubs, a bloom in popularity, maturity, and a dwindling into artistic irrelevance as the profit motive sucks out the soul of the movement and leaves nothing but the empty shell of appearance and recycled melodies.

Well, that could be changing that's changed. A few days ago I was listening to the Alex Jones show and he played What Would You Do by Paris, of Guerilla Funk. Now this guy is hardly a newcomer - he's been making records since '91 - but if guessing you've probably never heard of him. It's not because he's untalented; it's because he refused to sell his soul to a label, trading truth for money. As you might guess from his presence on the Alex Jones show, this guy understands the New World Order, and for well over a decade now he's been using his talent to fight it the only way it can be fought, by bringing truth to the people.

9/11 reinvigorated him and has him, in his own words, "Spittin' cyanide from each and every verse." And not just him; he's got a whole crew now, on his Guerilla Funk label, mostly new faces (well, so far as I can tell), but counting in their ranks Public Enemy. More soldiers in the information insurgency, a movement that's burgeoning now, beginning to take on the look of something truly historical, truly momentous. Musicians, artists, writers, bloggers, academics, political activists, youtubers ... the rVOLution is boiling up from every node of the world's wide Web, and it cannot be stopped any more than a volcano can be plugged or an earthquake stilled.

So do yourself a favor. Go to the Pirate Bay and download yourself the Guerilla Funk collection. If you like it, buy the CD. Even if you don't, give it a listen. It's some inspiring shit.

Mass March in Bogota

This is a mass march in Bogota, organized using facebook and other social networking tools.

I have no idea why specifically they were marching, but this is the kind of thing that brings a nasty smile to my face.

The internet hates tyranny. I hope this picture gives the pathocracy nightmares.

You've probably never heard of this guy, right? Here's the Cole's Notes: dude's been living in Japan since the early 80s, long enough that he speaks the language like a native. For the last half of the 90s he capitalized that by becoming the national bureau chief for Forbes magazine, a position he left when he was told he couldn't publish a story connecting government corruption to the yakuza. He continued pursuing the story on his own, eventually getting enough material for a book, and then - just before he could publish it - was clued in to what was really going on by a member of the Japanese Imperial family. The story expands in scope when, in the aftermath of confronting the former Japanese finance minister over his selling out of the Japanese banking system to the Rockefellers, he's contacted by someone who claims to be a ninja (!!!) and offered either a) a position in the New World Order or b) death. Right on the heels of that, he's contacted by a representative of a Chinese secret society that dates back to the Mongol invasion, who offers him their protection if he agrees to act as their go-between, ambassador as it were between the amusingly misnamed New World Order of the West and the Newer World Order of the East. This secret society, a sort of more-ethical Eastern counterpart to the Illuminati, had a fire lit under their pants after SARS, which they interpreted as either a test run, or a failed deployment of, an ethnic-specific bioweapon. Okay, so it's a pretty incredible story, yeah. But you know, the guy got an interview with David Rockefeller not too long ago, and he doesn't hand those out like candy. If you're interested in the rest of the story, everything else you want to know (or, well, can know) is archived here. All of this serves as a preview to a project I'm going to try and hold myself to for, well, as long as I can: English translations of Fulford's blog posts (which are in Japanese). I do this with no permission, so I hope he doesn't mind (and if I translate anything wrong, well, please, correct me in the comments. I'm not proud). Anyhow, here goes nothing:

About Those Chinese Gyoza

Those Chinese gyoza are probably the CIA's underhanded dealings.

One thing the West fears above all else is Japan and China becoming good buddies. In this case the use of agricultural chemicals at the Chinese gyoza factory can't be confirmed. It's clear that in order to worsen Sino-Japanese relations, there was some dirty business involving overseas authorities.

Now, of course there are some questions of hygiene management on the Chinese side, but the way this is being covered on TV is overt propaganda. In practice there are all sorts of pretty serious problems with American agricultural products too - agricultural chemicals, BSE, etc - but the coverage in the mass media is completely different.

Also, there's been information that there's been an extremely high number of chemtrails in Southern Japan, and this is probably related to weather modifications aimed at China that have been partly responsible for the heavy snowfall there. That's a just a guess, but I can't help but make it.

The American and European secret societies are getting desperate to obstruct Asia's rise, set to begin on the 8th of August.

On the Governer of Tougoku

He's definitely an individualistic guy, and it looks like he's got a variety of things in his past, but he's not your normal politician who's been brainwashed by his educational background. He thinks things through using common sense. Hence he seems to lack common sense, by the standards of the current organization.

Present day Japan is divided into Tokyo and everywhere else. It angers the rest of the country when Tokyo is given too much attention. Giving some thought to the rest of the country, the economic foundations of Japan should be fundamentally changed.

I've met a lot of politicians in the course of my data gathering, and this guy feels different.

On the Composite Photograph from the Skies of Okinawa

Thanks for all that information rushing in at once, after I posted on that strange photograph from Okinawa the other day!

The picture was sent to me from a politician, and as soon as I saw it I saw right through it, figuring it was probably a fake, but I decided to get your opinions. What I mean is, I wanted to see the Net's 'photo investigation power' at work. Everyone pooled their resources, and the photo was immediately revealed for the utter bullshit it was. Actually it wasn't from Okinawa or recent, just bullshit. Sorry for the confusion. Nevertheless and meeting my expectations, not one of you took it for the 'Hand of God'.

From now on I will of course be very careful in verifying the source and credibility of any information I receive, but whenever I get anything wrong please correct me immediately. At that time I want to pass along the most accurate information I can, so I'll be using this method.

The picture he's talking about is this one:

I think it looks rather like God giving mankind a goatse.

Life After People

I don't have a TV, and haven't for several months now. To be honest, it's not something I miss: most of what's on is crap, and on the odd occasion when there's something I actually want to watch, well, that's what bittorrent is for, right?

So a couple of days ago I downloaded the History Channel's 'Life After People', and last night, with some time to kill after work, I watched it. It left me with a bad taste in my mouth, the kind you get after you click one of those 'don't click these link' posts that leads to Tub Girl getting shat on by Goatse.

It starts out by magicking six and a half billion people off the planet. What happened to us is not explained; everyone just sort of disappears. Who knows, maybe we all transcended into hyperdimensional demigods, maybe Jesus decided we were all born-agains at heart and raptured us all up to the Kingdom of Heaven, maybe everyone just underwent spontaneous combustion. In the real world, of course, something more mundane would cause our mass disappearance, like cometary bombardment, nuclear armageddon, or the ultimate war plague.

Everything that follows in the History Channel's sick little giga-snuff flick is irredeemably tainted by this sweeping of the mass extinction of mankind under the rug. If the extinction was due to a nuclear spasm, then the every urban environment would be well fried, making the subsequent hour and a half of lovingly detailed exposition on the gradual decay of man-made structures somewhat pointless, as those structures would be, for the most part, gone at the same time we are.

If the species succumbed to biowarfare, the faults aren't quite so egregious, but one part - fairly early on - sticks out, in which the fate of mankind's pets is discussed (again, if it's nuclear war, the pets, like the buildings, are gone along with us.) It's mentioned that the dogs would have to scrounge for food in the city, though what, exactly, it is that they'll be eating is left unsaid. Well, to start with at least, the answer to that is obvious: they'll be eating human cadavers.

Most of the movie, like I said, comes down to an extended meditation on the decay of our buildings, our bridges, our monuments, and our cities, as the elements and the biosphere conspire over centuries to swallow everything every built by humans. The main point seems to be that nothing is permanent, and that should we disappear, every trace of our presence on this planet would be utterly erased in a geological eyeblink even shorter than the one that we called written history (except for Mount Rushmore, which David Brin points out may well last hundreds of thousands of years, carved as it is into solid granite. Then again, hundreds of thousands of years is still pretty short measured against billennia....) You might think that's rather obvious - ashes to ashes, and all that - but the producers didn't seem to think so. Indeed, the documentary seemed to positively exult in the way that nature would reclaim our cities.

One creepy moment near the end really sticks with me. One of the contributors, a cadaverous white-haired geriatric with the bright eyes of a mad scientist, his hands fluttering about like some sort of overstimulated British poof, enthusing about his vision of vines creeping over the Manhattan's skyscrapers as the forest eats the city. After that I had to ask, was this just a documentary? Or was it really extinctionist propaganda?

Hell, don't take my word for it. You've got an internet connection, and too much time on your hands (or you wouldn't be reading this). Watch it yourself.
