It’s Official: If You Question Authority, You Are Mentally Ill

In late 2013, the then newest issue of the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM for short) defined a new mental illness, the so-called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.

Here is the Mayo Clinic’s definition.

Jon Rappoport’s recent article entitled A whole branch of science turns out to be fake bears very directly upon this.

Anyone else think our world is getting crazier and more oppressive by the day?

May we soon find an exit from this madhouse, with a better future for our children and grandchildren.

Harvard professors warn ‘privacy is dead’ and predict mosquito-sized robots that steal samples of your DNA

Imagine a world where mosquito-sized robots fly around stealing samples of your DNA.

Or where a department store knows from your buying habits that you’re pregnant even before your family does.

That is the terrifying dystopian world portrayed by a group of Harvard professors at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday, where the assembled elite heard that the notion of individual privacy is effectively dead.

Imagine a world where mosquito-sized robots fly around stealing samples of your DNA – hat is the terrifying dystopian world portrayed at Davos ‘Welcome to today. We’re already in that world,’ said Margo Seltzer, a professor in computer science at Harvard University.

‘Privacy as we knew it in the past is no longer feasible… How we conventionally think of privacy is dead,’ she added.

Experts predict technology will lead to:

Mosquito-sized robots fly around stealing samples of your DNA

Department stores knowing from your buying habits that you’re pregnant even before your family does

Governments are talking about putting in back doors for communication

Another Harvard researcher into genetics said it was ‘inevitable’ that one’s personal genetic information would enter more and more into the public sphere.

Sophia Roosth said intelligence agents were already asked to collect genetic information on foreign leaders to determine things like susceptibility to disease and life expectancy.

‘We are at the dawn of the age of genetic McCarthyism,’ she said, referring to witch-hunts against Communists in 1950s America.

What’s more, Seltzer imagined a world in which tiny robot drones flew around, the size of mosquitoes, extracting a sample of your DNA for analysis by, say, the government or an insurance firm.

Invasions of privacy are ‘going to become more pervasive,’ she predicted.

The Bolshevik Revolution was a Zionist-led takeover of Russia

As with my piece on the Holocaust (the world is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz slave labour camp by Russia today), this is a controversial subject.

So, let’s look at the evidence.

Firstly, let’s begin with Wikipedia, which many still believe is a source of accurate information. Under Jewish Bolshevism, we find the following:

Jewish Bolshevism also known as Judeo-Bolshevism is a conspiracy theory that the Jews were at the origin of the Russian Revolution and held dominant power among Bolsheviks. Similarly the Jewish Communism theory implies that Jews have been dominating the Communist movements in the world. They are part of the Jewish World Conspiracy theory that Jews control world politics.[1] The expressions have been used as a catchword for the assertion that Communism is a Jewish conspiracy, and it has often coincided with overtly aggressive nationalistic tendencies in the 20th century and 21st century. In Poland, “Judeo-Bolshevism” was known as Żydokomuna and was used as an antisemitic stereotype.[2] Scholars dismiss this theory.[3] [4]

So, let’s note this and look elsewhere.

In this 1976 video and his book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution (1974), Antony Sutton discusses the defining role of Wall Street bankers and American businesses, as well as explaining how Trotsky (a Jew who changed his name from Bronstein) spent time in in New York and lived comfortably, with apparently no visible means of support, before being allowed to freely travel to Russia with other Bolsheviks, but does not support the notion that the Bolshevik Revolution was Jewish inspired.

Turning now to Denis Fahey’s book The Rulers of Russia (1939), Fahey provides extensive evidence of the extensive Jewish involvement. For example, he quotes Robert Wilton, the Russian correspondent of The Times for seventeen years. Wilton provided extensive detail of the various levels of the Bolshevik organisational structure in his French book Les Derniers Jours des Romanof, a list which was interestingly excluded from his English edition published in 1920. As a result of his publications, Wilton’s days in English journalism were ended and he died in dire straits in January, 1925.

Quoting Fahey on Wilton’s book:

On page 29 of Les Derniers jours des Romanof, we read:

“In order not to leave myself open to any accusation of prejudice, I am giving (on pages 136-137) the list of the members of the Central Committee, of the Extraordinary Commission and the Council of Commissars functioning at the time of the assassination of the Imperial Family. The 62 members of the Committee were composed of 5 Russians, 1 Ukrainian, 6 Letts, 2 Germans, 1 Czech, 2 Armenians, 3 Georgians, 1 Karaim (Jewish sect), 41 Jews.1 The extraordinary Commission of Moscow was composed of 36 members, including 1 German, 1 Pole, 1 Armenian, 2 Russians, 8 Letts, 23 Jews.  The Council of the People’s Commissars numbered 2 Armenians, 3 Russians, 17 Jews.  According to the data furnished by the Soviet Press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State, including the above-mentioned, there were in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian, 10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Czech, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews.

“If the reader is astonished to find the Jewish hand everywhere in the affair of the assassination of the Russian Imperial family, he must bear in mind the formidable numerical preponderance of Jews in the Soviet administration.”

On pages 136-138, then, of the same work, the author writes: “It is in the Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party that the governmental power resides. It was composed as follows in 1918: Bronstein (Trotski), Apfelbaum (Zinovieff), Lourie (Larine), Ouritski, Volodarski, Rosenfeldt (Kamenef), Smidovitch,  Sverdlof  (Yankel),  Nakhamkes  (Steklof).

Oulianof (Lenine), Krylenko, Lounatcharski. Russians   . . . . . .  3

The other Russian Socialist Parties are similar in composition. Their Central Committees are made up as follows:

S.D. Mensheviks, 11 members, all Jews; Communists of the People, 6 members, of whom 5 are Jews and one is a Russian ; S.R. (Right Wing), 15 members, of whom 13 are Jews and 2 are Russians (Kerenski, who may be of Jewish origin, and Tchaikovski) ; S.R. (Left Wing), 12 members, of whom 10 are Jews and 2 are Russians; Committee of the Anarchists of Moscow, 5 members, of whom 4 are Jews and one is a Russian; Polish Communist Party, 12 members, all Jews, including Sobelson (Radek), Krokhenal (Zagonski) and Schwartz (Goltz).

“These parties, in appearance opposed to the Bolsheviks, play the Bolsheviks’ game on the sly, more or less, by preventing the Russians from pulling themselves together. Out of 61 individuals at the head of these parties, there are 6 Russians and 55 Jews. No matter what may be the name adopted, a revolutionary government will be Jewish.

The Council of the People’s Commissars comprises the following:-

End of quote.

Fahey provides other extensive evidence for the Jewish dominance of Bolshevism; however, just these tables tell the story of the Jewish domination of the Bolshevik organisation.

Now, let’s turn to this article by Rev. Ted Pike:

The Jewish Encyclopedia (Socialism, p. 418) frankly points out that “Jews have been prominently identified with the modern Socialist movement from its very inception.” “Scientific socialism,” or what we call communism, says the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia in its article on socialism, “originated in the combination of Jewish Messianic feeling with German philosophy” 1 Marx, of course, was Jewish. But, just as important, Jews at all levels, from high financiers like the Warburgs, Schiffs and Rothschilds to rugged revolutionaries like Trotsky, Kamenev, Sverdlov and Zinoviev, made the success of communism possible.

Gary Allen in his book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, pp. 68-75, fingers those key Jewish financiers, especially Max Warburg in Germany and Jacob Schiff in America, who provided millions to arm and subsidize Jewish revolutionaries returning to Russia under the leadership of Trotsky. Schiff, head of the international banking firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. (now Chase Manhattan) was particularly influential. Quoting the New York Journal-America of February 3, 1949 out of Allen’s book: “Today it is estimated by Jacob’s grandson, John Schiff, that the old man sank about $20,000,000 for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia.” (Remember, that was when a common wage for adult hard labor was several dollars per day.) 2

Jews Tell Us Communism was Jewish

Let’s ease into this controversial subject by introducing some mild, yet tantalizing quotes from the authoritative Encyclopedia Judaica’s article on Communism.

The Communist movement and ideology played an important part in Jewish life, particularly in the 1920’s, 1930’s, and during and after World War II. Individual Jews played an important role in the early stages of Bolshevism and the Soviet regime. The great attraction of communism among Russian, and later also, Western, Jewry emerged only with the establishment of the Soviet regime in Russia.

How involved were the Jews? It continues by admitting that the “anti-Semitic” counteroffensive of the White Russian armies in 1918 “drove the bulk of Russian Jewish youth into the ranks of the Bolshevik regime.”  The bulk of Jewish youth. This means that the majority of all young Soviet Jews were communists. Jews, it says, found great opportunity within Bolshevism, “occupying many responsible positions in all branches of the party and state machinery at the central and local seats of power.” (pg. 791)

Bolshevism had become the Jewish cause as:

Many Jews the world over therefore regarded the Soviet concept of the solution to the “Jewish question” as an intrinsically positive approach Communism and support of the Soviet Union thus seemed to many Jews to be the only alternative, and Communist trends became widespread in virtually all Jewish communities. In some countries Jews became the leading element in the legal and illegal Communist parties and in some cases were even instructed by the Communist international to change their Jewish-sounding names and pose as non-Jews, in order not to confirm right-wing propaganda that presented Communism as an alien, Jewish conspiracy (pg. 792).

End of quote.

Quite a number of articles quote the Encyclopedia Judaica on this matter.

One last quote from this article:

Quoting from the American Hebrew of September 8, 1920:

The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction, and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, became a reality all over the world.

This last quote points very clearly to the broader plans behind the scenes, of which a great deal of evidence is present. More on this later.

Henry Ford, in his series of articles in the Dearborn Independent in 1920-1 (just after the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917), discusses the Revolution on many occasions. For example:

It is curious to note how this religious program has worked out in Russia where Trotsky (as loudly heralded in the American Jewish Press) is said to have no religion, and where Jewish commissars tell dying Russians who ask for priests, “We have abolished the Almighty.” Miss Katherine Dokoochief is reported, under a Philadelphia date, to have told the Near East Relief that Russian Christian churches have been subjected to the vilest indignities by the Bolsheviki, details of which she gives; but “the synagogues remain untouched, meeting with no damage.”

And this:

The Bolshevik Government, as it stood late this summer when the latest report was smuggled through to certain authorities, shows up the Jewish domination of the whole affair. It has changed very slightly since the beginning. We give only a few items to indicate the proportion. It must not be supposed that the non-Jewish members of the government are Russian. Very few Russians have anything to say about their own country these days. The so-called “Dictatorship of the Proletariat,” in which the proletariat has nothing whatever to say, is Russian only in the sense that it is set up in Russia; it is not Russian in that it springs from or includes the Russian people. It is the international program of the Protocols, which might be “put over” by a minority in any country, and which is being given a dress-rehearsal in Russia.

And this:

Dr. George A. Simons, a clergyman in charge of an American congregation in Petrograd at the time the Bolshevik terror broke out, was a witness. Parts of his testimony are given here: “‘ There were hundreds of agitators who followed in the trail of Trotsky-Bronstein, these men having come over from the lower East Side of New York * * * A number of us were impressed by the strange Yiddish element in this thing right from the start, and it soon became evident that more than half the agitators in the so-called Bolshevik movement were Yiddish.’ “Senator Nelson — ‘Hebrews?’ “Dr. Simons — ‘They were Hebrews, apostate Jews. I do not want to say anything against the Jews, as such. I am not in sympathy with the anti-Semitic movement, never have been, and do not ever expect to be * * * But I have a firm conviction that this thing is Yiddish, and that one of its bases is found in the East Side of New York.’ “Senator Nelson — ‘Trotsky came over from New York during that summer, did he not?’ “Dr. Simons — ‘He did.’

And this:

William Chapin Huntington, who was commercial attache of the United States Embassy at Petrograd, testified: “The leaders of the movement, I should say, are about two-thirds Russian Jews * * * The Bolsheviks are internationalists, and they were not interested in the particular national ideals of Russia.” William W. Welch, an employee of the National City Bank, New York, testified: “In Russia it is well known that three-fourths of the Bolshevik leaders are Jewish * * * There were some — not many, but there were some — real Russians; and what I mean by real Russians is Russian -born, and not Russian Jews.”

Now, Henry Ford came in for great criticism as being anti-Semitic (that wonderful, weaponised term that points to the game behind the game, since most Semites are not Jewish and most Jews are not Semites – simply accusing someone of being anti-Jewish does not carry the same weaponised sting), as is illustrated in this Wikipedia entry. But what Ford did extensively in his writings was to quote the testimony of others, and very often Jewish testimony and quotations for the arguments he made. You can see this in the examples I give you above.

To cap this off, I share with you this 2006 article by Sever Plocker (a Jew) entitled “Stalin’s Jews – We mustn’t forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish”. I quote:

Here’s a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.

 Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.

 We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.

 Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, “opposition members” who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.

 In his new, highly praised book “The War of the World, “Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was directed internally.

 Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined “terror officials,” cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.

 All these things are well-known to some extent or another, even though the former Soviet Union’s archives have not yet been fully opened to the public. But who knows about this? Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD’s and KGB’s service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of “How could it have happened to us?” As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not settle the score with their Stalinist past.

 And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name “Genrikh Yagoda,” the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the “bloodthirsty dwarf.”

 Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book “Stalin: Court of the Red Star”, Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.

End of quote.

So, for me, based on the abundant evidence of the time and in complete conflict with the Wikipedia entry on the subject, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and the majority of the abuses perpetrated against the Russian people, were Jewish in origin and, in my view, a step along the path that the Zionist organisation (I hasten to say, this is only a part of the Jewish population) had planned.

Until we begin to recognise what has happened in our world, we cannot begin to understand what is now happening in it.

Military-clad English-speakers caught on camera in Mariupol shelling aftermath

There have been a number of reports of English-speaking mercenaries involved in the attacks on Eastern Ukraine. This is one of them.

Armed people in uniform speaking fluent English with no accent have been spotted in Mariupol in the aftermath of the rocket hit, fuelling allegations that foreign private military contractors are serving among Ukrainian troops.

The port city in eastern Ukraine, under Kiev’s control, saw a surge of violence on Saturday, when several rockets hit a residential area in the east of the city, reportedly killing 30 civilians. Numerous videos from the scene showed destruction in the aftermath of the attack, for which local militia and Ukrainian troops blamed each other.

But among footage shot in Mariupol, there are some videos showing armed men in military uniform, who speak English fluently.

One video uploaded on YouTube is apparently raw footage of a local news channel MSN (Mariupol News Service). One episode shows a man passing resolutely by the camera.

Richie Allen interviews David Icke

This is an outstanding update on David Icke’s perspective on where our world is heading. It’s a view that I agree with, unless we change the progression in some manner. I encourage you to take the time to listen to this interview.

WikiLeaks demands answers after Google hands staff emails to US government

From a Guardian article:

Google took almost three years to disclose to the open information group WikiLeaks that it had handed over emails and other digital data belonging to three of its staffers to the US government, under a secret search warrant issued by a federal judge.

WikiLeaks has written to Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, to protest that the search giant only revealed the warrants last month, having been served them in March 2012. In the letter, WikiLeaks says it is “astonished and disturbed” that Google waited more than two and a half years to notify its subscribers, potentially depriving them of their ability to protect their rights to “privacy, association and freedom from illegal searches”.

Affidavit of Virginia Roberts

Here is the affidavit submitted by Virginia Roberts in relation to her alleged grooming and underaged sexual activities with Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew of Great Britain and others. In my view, this is the end of a very long thread. Time will tell where it leads.

Not all Jews support the state of Israel

Let me say as I post this is that I do not, for one moment, claim to be knowledgeable on the complexity of Judaism.

However, I find this reportedly 10,000 strong New York protest of Orthodox Jews against the state of Israel and the Zionist interests it represents to be very interesting. To my knowledge, this protest was not covered in the mainstream media, perhaps unsurprisingly.

And when I place it beside this video I have previously shared with former Iranian President Ahmadinejad meeting with Orthodox Jewish leaders in New York, it is not difficult to see that we are given a distorted picture of the reasons and mandate for Israel. It contains an excellent discussion of the distinction between Judaism and Zionism, as viewed by an Orthodox Jew. Israel, of course, seeks the destruction of Iran, yet a sizeable Jewish population resides peacefully in Iran.

Also, this brief interview by Ahmadinejad with Larry King (King is Jewish, changing his name from Lawrence Harvey Zeiger) bears on the conversation.

Again, I do not claim to understand this; however, one distinction seems to be that the Orthodox Jews follow the teachings of the Torah, whilst the Zionists seem more to follow the Talmud, which some claim contains elements supporting the exploitation and domination of non-Jews, or goyim as they are wont to describe them. I would appreciate input on this from any of my Jewish readers, of which there are a number. I am interested in this because it seems to me that it bears far more directly on the workings of our world than most yet recognise, as is indicated by this article.

#OpDeathEaters gains momentum in exposing global paedo-sadism

In early January, I mentioned the emergence of a Twitter group called #OpDeathEaters, which has in its sights the global paedo-sadism that reaches to the very highest levels in our world. This group has now spawned similar groups in many countries as it seeks to gather momentum and sufficient evidence to trigger action that cannot and will not be stopped by those in power, since the evidence is that all political structures globally, all major police forces, all judiciary and all major military organisations are now controlled by these horrific practices involving both forced homosexual acts in some cases but also child abuse and child sacrifice. Some of these control mechanisms were revealed in the video I shared with you recently, entitled “JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick”. Again, David Icke has been talking about this for years.

And finally their activities have been mentioned in the mainstream press, albeit with the spin that the U.K. Government seems to support such initiatives, when nothing could be further from the truth. Heather Marsh is the driver in this, and a driver she most certainly is. I feel she has the knowledge, intelligence, fearlessness and will to see this through, provided she stays alive.

One of hundreds of cases that they are reporting on is the recent legal case involving Prince Andrew claiming he had underaged sex with a woman provided by his “friend” Jeffrey Epstein. Another figure involved in the case is high profile Jewish lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, who has come out swinging, claiming his accuser is a serial liar and prostitute, and is threatening to have her children taken from her. It seems this is something Dershowitz has experience in, as revealed by the recently emerged story concerning his first wife, Sue Barlach, who was reportedly hospitalised after a beating at the hands of Alan, and who reportedly committed suicide soon after Alan took their two sons during divorce proceedings, preventing her from having further contact with them. It appears from this article that Alan worked very hard to bury any trace of his marriage to Sue, but the chickens do seem to be coming home to roost.

May Heather Marsh’s efforts finally expose the scale and scope of these practices, and how they are used to control our world.

There’s no you in srveillance

Another, wonderful post from the Open Whispersystems “Winter Break of Code”. This passionate, idealistic group of young techies, giving of their time to refine and extend a set of tools that provide free, secure phone calls and texting make my heart sing. It is all that the world of total surveillance, endless political lies, militarised police, paedo-sadism and endless war is not. May their efforts survive the attempts emerging in the U.K. to shut such services down. I quote:

The work that Open Whisper Systems was doing looked so refreshing when I first discovered the project. Freed from the constraints of legacy systems, their novel approach to solving challenging mobile security problems was very easy for me to admire. I decided that I wanted to become a lot more involved, and I felt very fortunate when that opportunity presented itself last March.

Since then, I have been writing content, handling emails, responding to questions at the Support Center, and doing whatever I can to be a thorn in the side of mass surveillance. This week I had the privilege of working with a wildly talented team of designers, videographers, writers, and UX experts on the website redesign. It’s looking absolutely fantastic so far, and that’s only one of many exciting things that happened.

It’s difficult to find new ways to describe the beauty of Hawaii. Suffice it to say, there’s nothing quite like swimming underneath a waterfall, staring up at a blue sky, and watching falling drops become a constellation of stars as you travel through time and space itself. Also, if you ever find yourself scuba diving for the first time and gasping with awe as your brain struggles to process the impossibility of your position, try an impromptu underwater dance party. Further experiments are necessary, but the early results are extremely promising.

When we can find a way to make applications that are accessible, well-designed, and highly secure (e.g. Flock, RedPhone, Signal, and TextSecure), the focus can shift to the numerous benefits provided by additional privacy protections instead of the drawbacks that are typically associated with making that choice (e.g. the entire PGP ecosystem).

A couple of weeks ago, a good friend of mine installed the new Signal beta on his iPhone that included TextSecure protocol support. He’s incredibly talented in so many ways, but he does not work in technology. I wanted to see what would happen, and hoped that a turning point had been reached. Without asking for any help, and without expressing any frustration, his first message quickly arrived:

“I think this is working.”

I think this is working too.

End of quote. May it be allowed to continue to work.
