Tangled up in Spooks: The Bob Dylan Story

leave a comment »

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 7.42.10 AMIt would be difficult to describe the impact the cinema-verite masterpiece “Don’t Look Back,” made on my teenage psyche when first viewed in the summer of 1968 at the Illini Student Union. Bob Dylan had already transformed my generation with some inspiring folk-rock anthems when this glimpse behind the curtain appeared and made clear our hero was flawed, as heroes should be according to Aristotle. Dylan had plugged into the folk revival and rearranged some classics with contemporary lyrics, and since some of these concerned subjugation of the masses, the civil rights movement fit right into the paradigm, igniting the imaginations of kids everywhere, transforming Dylan into a lighting rod for social evolution. Almost overnight, he went from unknown to most famous songwriter in America. And when avatars like that appear, they draw spooks, because spooks seek influence over centers of psychic gravity. Creative energy and spirituality go hand-in-hand, as any student of improvisational theater can attest.

But Dylan soon disappeared and everything written about him became speculation, and rumors ran wild. I can’t pretend to have penetrated this world, but I do have some thoughts formulated over the decades.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 9.13.05 AMNo one attached themselves more firmly to Dylan than A.J. Weberman, who famously revealed the contents of the songwriter’s garbage, which is when the world discovered he was dabbling in hard drugs. Not only did Weberman hound Dylan physically and emotionally, he compiled a convoluted analysis of Dylan’s lyrics claiming to have broken a secret code that revealed Dylan was a Manchurian Candidate puppet who required liberation from his controllers. “Dylan’s brain belongs to the people, not to the pigs!!” shrieked Weberman, ignoring the obvious fact Dylan’s brain belongs to Dylan and nobody else.

Weberman would soon write a revealing book about the JFK assassination that correctly fingered the CIA for fomenting the heinous act. But he built this thesis around E. Howard Hunt as mastermind of the operation, and never once mentioned James Angleton or Allen Dulles. His crowning evidence was unleashing pictures of the three tramps, falsely claiming one was Hunt. In truth, Hunt was sent to Dallas that day, but likely did not participate. It appears his role was that of potential backstop because years later Angleton released a memo wondering how they were going to explain Hunt being in Dallas that day. Fingering Hunt as the instigator was a blind alley leading nowhere.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 9.14.46 AMMark Mordechai Levy, a close associate of Weberman’s, runs the militant JDO spin-off from Irv Rubin’s JDL. Levy tried to murder Rubin following the split when Rubin attempted to serve a subpoena on him. The bullets missed and wounded an innocent bystander. Levy served 18 months on a 4 1/2 year sentence for attempted murder. Obviously, Weberman and Levy have spook links and no doubt enjoy access to insider information. If you ask Weberman about 9/11, he’ll tell you Osama did it just like the Pentagon says it happened. Going through a target’s garbage is Spook Ops 101 and always has been.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 9.17.15 AMTo visit a completely different social strata, I was fascinated by Dylan’s 2004 autobiography (Chronicles, Volume One), especially by Dylan’s encounters with Archibald McLeish, prominent member of Yale’s powerful and highly secretive Order of Skull & Bones and former OSS operative. Broadway producer Stuart Ostrow had a massive hit with “1776” and wanted to follow-up with a musical remake of “The Devil and Daniel Webster” by Stephen Vincent Benet, with McLeish penning the script and Dylan providing the music and lyrics. Ostrow’s version of events differs significantly from Dylan’s, and the reason is obvious: At least three songs on Dylan’s comeback album “New Morning” were written for this production, but after a few meetings and some disagreements, Dylan dropped out of the project. Without Dylan’s music, it flopped, closing after three performances. Perhaps Dylan saw the flop coming as he writes: “MacLeish tells me about J.P. Morgan, the financier, that he was one of the six or eight persons at the beginning of the century who owned all of America…the play was dark, painted a world of paranoia, guilt and fear—it was all blacked out and met the atomic age head on, reeked of foul play….this play was up to something and I didn’t think I wanted to know….”

Undoubtedly, there were many more attempts from many angles to get a piece of Bob Dylan, and these but two examples. Dylan’s removal from political and social spheres of influence was likely the only way to end the predatory intrusions.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 2.04.17 PMMichael Baumann, (aka “Bommi the Bomber”), Germany’s greatest rock star revolutionary, died last night after a long illness. In 1975, while on the run, he published a banned book that repudiated his violent past and his many bombings (none of which took any lives), by explaining that after being raised in the post-WWII ghetto of East Berlin, he had been trained towards violent behavior his entire life. But after a few years of promoting terror against the state, he’d realized this was a path the authorities wanted him to pursue. It’s taken decades for me to absorb some of the nuances of the 1960s counter-revolution. Why has most everything gone so wrong since then? Recent discoveries lead me to believe revolutionary terror is encouraged by intelligence agencies, a conclusion Bommi came to earlier than most.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.32.51 AMThe pro-democracy student movement in Germany in the 1960s was also called SDS and it was also non-violent, at least until June 2, 1967, when the second day of an ugly protest against the visiting Shah of Iran took place in Munich. To counter the protesters, the Shah unleashed a goon squad attacking the crowd with wooden bats, cracking heads and inflicting serious damage while police melted away, temporarily disappearing. During the melee, a student named Benno Ohnesorg was executed by a policeman with a shot to the back of his head. Still wracked with PTSD from WWII, Germany went into a state of shock after newsreels of the beatings and killing appeared on tv, and despair intensified after the policeman, Karl Kurras, was found innocent of wrongdoing.

The bloody terror campaign of the Beider-Meinhof RAF gang that followed reminds me of similar actions undertaken by the bloody Weather Underground immediately following the assassination of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton by the Chicago police. Notice the leader of the Weather Underground and the leaders of the Neo-Con movement that fomented two devastating and unnecessary wars all emanated from the Rockefeller-funded University of Chicago. This is no accident in my judgment. Like the Weather Underground, the RAF was led by grandstanding publicity seekers who favored plush lifestyles, not the sort of lower-class upbringing Bommi sprang from. Also, Bommi did most of his actions with a sense of humor, something severely lacking in the RAF and Weather Underground.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 2.51.30 PMWhile I can’t pretend to have penetrated the ranks to determine which German revolutionaries were double agents, Manchurian candidates or true believers, I can tell you with absolute certainty Karl Kurras was an agent of the East German Stasi intelligence agency. And in 1972, Bommi gave an enormous list of names of everyone he knew during an epic interview with the Stasi. Before he died, George Orwell did the same thing for MI5. It was Orwell who’d first explained how the revolution is actually a mirage secretly created by agents of the state to draw the rebel moths to their flames. If you read between the lines, you realize 1984 is an expose of Communism as a controlled dialectic created by Capitalism, which is why all Communist revolutions are fascism in sheep’s clothing.

Bommi says he was arrested by Stasi while crossing the border with a fake passport and was given the option of telling Stasi everything he knew about the movement (and they had plenty of inside intel to verify if he was telling the truth), or he would be shipped back to West Germany to rot in jail. Bommi also says Kurras was useless as a spy after Ohnesorg’s murder because he became the most infamous policeman in Germany. Spooks need to hide in the shadows and once a spotlight falls on them any future operations become difficult to conceal.

Bommi’s book, “Terror or Love” is only $14 on Amazon. If you want an illuminating look at how a 1960s revolutionary woke up and denounced all terror, you can’t do better than this book. The Western press did not even note his passing.

Late in life Bommi became a very successful businessman and real estate investor. I’d always hoped to interview him some day so I could probe some of the nuances. Sadly, that won’t be happening. RIP Bommi.

Psychogeography & spiritual evolution

leave a comment »

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 9.00.26 AMB. F. Spath has just released a masterpiece of psychogeography, a little-known occult art form that emerged out of the French counterculture of the late 1960s and one that’s been evolving through a small handful of radical European artists ever since. With this book, Spath strikes his claim as an American grandmaster of the order.

Psychogeography involves telepathic emanations and psychological impacts of specific locations and also improvisational wanderings through new environments, a quest whose purpose is the act of questing into the unknown. In Spath’s case, however, this translates into a fascination with Battery Park in Lower Manhattan, once a sacred site for Native American ceremonies, and from the 1770s through the 1800s, one of the premier ceremonial sites for Europeans in North American. Before the advent of Ellis Island, immigrants arriving in Manhattan landed mostly here, and it was from these docks many clipper ships departed for distant shores in search of opium, spices, silk and china. For someone buried in the basement of a Lower East Side tenement, Battery Park becomes the key psychological escape from the suffocating claustrophobia of modern life.

The book involves the sacramental use of cannabis for making telepathic contact with ghosts of ancient ceremony and ritual, and the perils that sometimes afflict the intoxicated.

Since Spath is one of the founders of the Pot Illuminati, I’m hoping this book sparks great interest in the coming revolution in cannabis spirituality, a movement I expect to overtake many established fundamentalist religions someday.

The most important thing about the Pot Illuminati is the one rule: “don’t hurt anybody,” and while we respect the rituals of ancient religions and study their histories, we reject all dogma as false, and don’t recognize leaders, except in respect to the most creative among us, which is why cultural innovators like Grandmaster Caz and Chiefrocker Busy Bee are grandmasters of the order. We don’t fund-raise or collect money from anyone for anything, which make us the only non-corruptible religion on the planet.

The ancient city of Balkh, once a jewel of the Silk Road although now long abandoned, is some of the geography I’d like to explore someday, perhaps even following the Oxus River down to the Caspian and Black seas, a route traversed by the original stoner tribe. There are spiritual sites dotted all through the Caucasus Mountains created by this cannabis-using tribe, as well as a ring of settlements buried in mud around the rim of the Black Sea, settlements that were engulfed by a tsunami created when the Bosphorus Strait was breached due to rising sea levels. Someday this area will become a mecca for pilgrims seeking a connection with the origins of cannabis spirituality.

If you want to join the Pot Illuminati, we’ll be holding the next initiations at the Boston Freedom Rally on September 17 and 18.

Origins of the Jewish Conspiracy Theory

with 2 comments

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 7.32.28 AMSometime around the year 1000, rumors of Christian children being abducted by Jews (who allegedly drained their blood to make matzoh) began circulating around Europe, leading to some mass executions and ethnic cleansing. Images of babies being tortured by Jews were painted on cathedral walls to incite the hatred. For centuries, most Christians had been intentionally kept illiterate and only priests, monks and those of noble birth taught to read and write. Most Jewish children, on the other hand, had been highly educated all along, an imbalance that undoubtedly created envy and suspicion, and may have been a contributing factor to why Jews soon rose to prominence in science.

Manipulating people with “blood libel” scams worked for a long time and kept peasants focused on hating Jews rather than toppling the predatory status quo that enslaved them, but eventually, the story began to fade simply because there never was a shred of truth involved.

But in 1903, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion appeared and alleged that a secret council of Jewish leaders was planning to take over the world by fomenting war for profit, a document initially circulated by Russian secret police. Russia was the world powerhouse in oil at the time and were pumping half the world’s crude, an operation divided between a Russian oil company, the Rothschilds and the Nobels. In America, Rockefeller was making similar moves to capture the North American oil industry.

In 1905, Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov created the Bolsheviks, who quickly attracted immense funding from Wall Street, specifically J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller. Within a decade the Czar was dead, Lenin in power, and control of the Russian oil fields up for grabs. Armond Hammer was installed as the go-between for American big business and the new regime.

On November 13, 1918, a strange document (SDDF 861.00/5339) was circulated at the highest levels of the State Department titled “Bolshevism and Judaism.” It included various memes lifted from the Protocols and also alleged the Russian Revolution had been financed primarily by Jacob Schiff along with the Kuhn, Loeb & Company, known agents of the Rothschilds. According to a British intelligence source, there was definite proof Communism was an international movement controlled by Jews. This meme also appeared in Germany, and would eventually be deployed to assist the rise of the Nazis.

If fact, Schiff had been a strong opponent of Lenin and Trotsky and the Rothschilds lost their Russian oil connection with the murder of the Czar. And while it is true nearly 20 percent of the original Communists in Russia were Jewish, most (like Trotsky) disappeared early on and were deported, murdered or sent to Siberia. During WWI, the oil fields of Russia, once the largest producer in the world, remained dormant, something that undoubtedly benefited Rockefeller’s rise to power.

In 1924, after Lenin’s death, Stalin took power and began investing heavily in revitalizing the oil fields. He hired the Koch family to build a series of refineries, which is why they are among the richest in the world today.

So when you pass along those facebook posts alleging the Rothschilds own all the central banks, or that Jews are the source of corruption and evil, just keep in mind this is a well-worn trail blazed by intelligence agents and designed to confuse you. Whenever racial issues are deployed to incite fear, it’s always a hoodwink. Religion is a tool for keeping people brainwashed and by pitting religions against each other, war-for-profit is easily manifested. The masters of war and munitions companies have been running these games for a long time.

Inside the Vaccination Wars

with one comment

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.04.14 AMAndrew Wakefield just won’t go away. The former British doctor and medical researcher can’t practice medicine anymore and refuses to admit to the 12 charges of fraud he’s been convicted of. There are two possibilities: 1) Wakefield is a fraud; 2) Wakefield is a legitimate whistle-blower trying to clear his name.

One thing we should agree on: There’s been an alarming rise of mental disorders in children and this epidemic is growing fast. Whatever toxins are causing this trend should be identified asap but there doesn’t seem to be much attention on solving the problem. The vaccine debate instantly degenerated into two polarized sides with their own sets of data and experts, neither of which recognize validity in the other side. Meanwhile, in the 1970s, one in 2,000 children had autism, and now it’s one in 45 and climbing with a bullet.

Wakefield directed a film and Robert De Niro wanted to screen it at his Tribeca Film Festival, but as soon as the film’s inclusion was announced, a pressure drop came down and the film was pulled. A major part of the film deals with a CDC whistle-blower named Dr. William Thompson and phone calls he made to Dr. Brian Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.26.45 AMHooker, wherein he described fraud at the CDC.

Unfortunately, the website carrying Wakefield’s flag is NaturalNews, run by the mysterious Mike Adams, aka The Health Ranger. Adams runs a health supplement business (i.e. scam) using a click-bait website to drive sales. His headlines tell people what they already suspect while promising explosive new info that always turns out to be speculation with no basis in fact. Adams runs enormous link farms with over 86 sites under his control. The purpose of this net is to artificially inflate traffic to his main site.

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 10.13.39 AMAdams is a critic of Monsanto and believes 9/11 was an inside job. So far so good, but unfortunately, he also promotes stories Sandy Hook never happened, the Aurora shooting was a CIA plot, and planes are spraying chemtrails to poison us. This appears to be the standard disinfo op of mixing mud into any waters of real investigation. His scope of operations is immense, but Adams doesn’t seem to have an office and employs a mail drop. His past is rather murky and his gut-sucking self-portraits might be better suited for a dating site. Adams might be doing counterintel for Monsanto or Lilly or the CIA. One thing for sure, he’s not a legitimate source of info, so if Wakefield wants to appear legit, Adams is the sort of person he should steer clear of. The credibility of the film depends on Thompson to a large degree, so a rug might be pulled out from under Wakefield’s film fairly soon.

Someday in the far, far future, independent supervision might be installed at the CDC and the revolving door with Big Pharma closed forever. Do vaccines harm some kids? Why else would our kangaroo vaccine court pay out millions in damages? Could we produce safer vaccines? No doubt, but that won’t be on our national agenda as long as they they keep us focused on a war between “vaxxers” versus “anti-vaxxers.” And that, Virginia, is what dialectical social control is all about.

David Icke and the Satanic Hoax

with one comment

Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 9.33.12 AMDavid Icke lost a promising career in soccer due to joint issues and lost an equally promising career in BBC sports broadcasting due to mental issues. He’d become a leading spokesperson for the Green Party in England before spending a few months in Saudi Arabia, and when he returned, he rocketed off planet earth into the realms of delusion and egomania. Strangely, he quickly became the world’s most successful and widely-known conspiracy theorist. Why? Because spooks control the Tin Foil Hat Disinfo Matrix just like they control the mainstream media.

In March 1991, Icke held three press conferences to explain how a recent psychic experience had transformed him into the “Son of the Godhead” and his divinely inspired automatic writings foretold the end of the world by 1997. He promised the cliffs of Kent would be underwater by Christmas. Icke became the laughingstock of England almost overnight.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the looney bin. Icke began mixing up bits of real information with crackpot delusions. He claimed a small cabal at the top of the banking/oil/chemical industries was instigating terror for social control and schools were dumbing people down. He claimed the control mechanisms ran through secret societies that included Masonry and its offshoots. He claimed children were being prostituted to people at high levels of power, a nasty secret that accidentally burst into view with the collapse of the CIA-connected Franklin Savings and Loan in Omaha, Nebraska.

Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 9.33.28 AMIcke is playing an important role in spook world. He lost a $200,000 judgment against a Canadian lawyer who claimed his book Children of the Matrix libeled Jewish people. Icke places the center of power inside the Rockefeller/Rothschild axis, but asserts they are alien-human hybrids who shape-ship at will and have lizard-like skins in their natural state.

If you analyze this op, it’s possible one intent is to make the power of the Rockefeller/Rothschild axis seem divinely inspired by merging them with alien gods. The most obvious intent is to hide some truth by wrapping it in a stinking pile of bullshit. Icke scares people with magic tales, and fear is the basis of all apocalyptic religion, as well as the more modern forms of mind control.

I don’t believe Icke’s rise to fame was achieved organically and wonder if the Icke we see today wasn’t influenced somehow by those mystery months in Saudi Arabia.

“There are indications that the ritual of the Eucharist is a reflection of earlier rituals related to human sacrifice and blood drinking,” writes Icke. “There is the emphasis on symbolically eating the body of Jesus and drinking his blood as red wine. We might expect, therefore, that the Christian Church would be a front for Satanism and its blood and sacrifice rituals. That, it turns out, is precisely what it is.”

DisinfoPoster_edited-1The above is an example of connecting dots that don’t connect while skipping over the most important dots. Yes, the Eucharist has at its roots a Zoroastrian Eucharist, and before that a Scythian Eucharist that began millennia ago with the drinking of blood of a vanquished enemy from his decapitated skullcap. But between the blood drinking, there were many centuries of drinking cannabis and milk from a golden chalice. Don’t you think that’s an important piece of information to know when discussing the significance of the Eucharist? It’s absurd to claim a hidden religion born millennia ago has existed unchanged, or that a secret cabal of satanists is running the Christian religions. The rules of magic apply equally to all no matter what icons appear on any altars, and when someone tries to scare you with boogie-man stories about the devil, it’s always a hoodwink. Always.

Jordan Maxwell and the Anunnaki Hoax

with 4 comments

Screen Shot 2016-03-27 at 9.13.53 AM“Magic wands were always made out of the wood of a Holly tree. It’s made out of Holly wood. Hollywood is a Druidic establishment and the symbols, the words, the terms, the stories, are designed.  Think about it. Think about how Hollywood does what they do. I’m not saying they’re evil, I’m just explaining how Hollywood works.” -Jordan Maxwell

Although Jordan Maxwell (real name Russell Pine) self-describes himself as the world’s leading expert in the occult, in fact, he is the historical equivalent of Lucy in Peanuts (just making up shit as he goes along). He claims there’s a star-gate in Iraq that instantly teleports anyone to a military base on Mars, and the world has been secretly run by lizards from another dimension for millennia. The amazing thing is some people actually fall for his hoodwinks.

I’d like to point out the use of magic sticks goes back into prehistory and the wood initially associated with wands was walnut, and later other nut trees, but never a holly tree. The origins of the name Hollywood are easily researched and has zero to do with Druids. I just want you to see how shallow Maxwell’s understanding of magic is, and how easily 99% of his “research” can be exposed by consulting the Internet.

DisinfoPoster_edited-1So how does a transparent quack get propelled to the front lines of the conspiracy media and become an influential figure? I suggest the Tin Foil Hat Disinfo Matrix is well organized, composed of spooks, kooks, players and played, and it’s hard to tell the brainwashed true-believers (and MKULTRA mind control victims) from the spooks. But I can assure you the crowd Maxwell runs with (Icke, Tsarion, Passio) are card carrying members of a managed dialectic whose primary purpose is spreading a tin foil blanket over events like 9/11.

The style of this op is to twist history into some wildly paranoid conspiracy involving good versus bad aliens or other such transparent hokum. Some of Maxwell’s dogma is extracted straight from Bible quotes, but his mainstays are direct from Manley P. Hall’s investigations into occult literature. But it doesn’t matter where your dogma comes from, it’s still just dogma and nothing more. Maxwell can rant for hours about solar cults and moon cults and astro-astrology, but doesn’t have a clue about the Scythian influence on mythology and religion. If you want to know what preceeded Sumeria and Egypt, look toward the Black Sea, and the people who first domesticated horses and invented the wheel.

Maxwell claims the winged globe of ancient times was a reference to a UFO spacecraft, which is absurd. The evolution of the winged globe and its importance in the Zoroastrian religion, and eventual morphing into the caduceus, is important, so I wonder why the Disinfo Matrix obscures its meaning with a UFO hoax. Could it be because the winged globe symbolizes the effects of cannabis? One thing you need to know about Scythians: they loved cannabis, which is why the Zoroastrian version of the Eucharist served cannabis and hot milk (often with a dash of opium, ephedra and spices).

Maxwell claims to have met a psychic early in life who foretold his destiny as a great person. That’s exactly what David Icke claims so I suspect this might be a reference to their MKULTRA hypnotherapist. He also claims to have spent his early years investigating Communism, and if that is so, I wonder why he says nothing about the vast intel penetration and manipulation of the communist networks. But some of his biggest blunders concern the Holy Grail and his belief that the myth is all about Jesus.

Trust me, any time someone tries to scare you with magic or religion, it’s always a hoodwink. Painting pictures of an alien boogie-man secretly running the world is a hoodwink because all it accomplishes is to let the real criminals off the hook, because none of them are lizard aliens.
