Well folks... the Bollyn "thing" is a lot weirder than I realized. I've just finished reading this long thread and I've also listened to a few dozen episodes of Michael Collins Piper's radio program, many involving (and some guest-starring) Bollyn. It seems that Bollyn is (or always was??) a psychopath. No, I'm not making that up. Read the thread, check everything out, and judge for yourself. I wish there were some other way to interpret all of this, but I don't see one.

Not a good day in independent journalism land.

So, I'm not sure what to make of his police incident now. It did happen (the police have reported on it and their account confirms most of the basic elements of Bollyn's description of the incident), but why? And who was really the instigator? And... lots more questions.

Jim Condit, Jr. is caught up in this mess too; see thread linked above (last 5-10 pages). It's ugly.

Joe Sobran was recently enlightened about Islam. Important video here.

A certain kind of layering or schizophrenia of ideology takes place during the ponerization process. The outer layer closest to the original content is used for the group's propaganda purposes, especially regarding the outside world, although it can in part also be used inside with regard to disbelieving lower-echelon members. The second layer presents the elite with no problems of comprehension: it is more hermetic, generally composed by slipping a different meaning into the same names. Since identical names signify different contents depending on the layer in question, understanding this "doubletalk" requires simultaneous fluency in both languages.

Average people succumb to the first layer's suggestive insinuations for a long time before they learn to understand the second one as well. Anyone with certain psychological deviations, especially if he is wearing the mask of normality with which we are already familiar, immediately perceives the second layer to be attractive and significant; after all, it was built by people like him.


Intrigued? Read more. Extremely useful study, even though I disagree on a few points.
If you or someone you love is still deluded about the alleged Christianity of George W. Bush, this book should help. You can hear the author on the Piper Report (download this: MP3) and again later on the Piper Report (download both of these: MP3a MP3b), on the Byte Show (download this: MP3) and also on Uncensored Radio Free America (download this: MP3).

If you aren't listening to the Republic Broadcasting Network, you probably should be.

Go to the 37:30 mark in this video and watch the remainder. It will change your life, especially if you still think we've been told the truth about 9/11 by those who outrageously demand that they not be challenged about it.

What does subversion look like? Is it beady eyes, a trenchcoat, and a curly twirlable mustache, in a greasy back alley? Or is it just some nondescript guy you've never heard of, in a nice suit?

There's your subverter, fellow Americans. His name is Thomas Shannon. Read his words for yourself -- and remember, the whole Bush administration is chock full of people who think exactly the same way. (Extra credit: notice the new Pearl Harbor nakedly invoked as the default justification for everything -- in this case, subversion. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis. "9/11 changed everything." It's a perpetual "get out of scrutiny free" card.) Count the Hegelian buzzwords in this speech, note the total absence of even lip service to the Constitution, and then remind me why it matters that "Republicans" are in control of the federal government -- a government we no longer control and which is busy rendering itself irrelevant in a Rockefellerite "regional governance" scheme in which you will have no voice whatsoever (but which will nonetheless proudly label itself "democracy").

As the events of 9/11 demonstrated, the Western Hemisphere is confronting a new set of challenges that require an unprecedented degree of regional cooperation and coordination, according to Shannon. And the region's leaders have responded by recognizing that democracy, development and security are inextricably linked throughout the hemisphere, he said.

"[W]e live in a hemisphere that is democratic, a hemisphere that is committed to free markets, that is committed to economic integration," said Shannon. "From my point of view, in many ways this hemisphere has already gone through what we would call the first generation of transformational challenges by committing itself to democracy, by committing itself to fundamental human rights, and by building a consensus -- however debated it is, ... it's still a consensus -- around an economic model and an approach to economic growth."

Read the whole speech. This would outrage the founding fathers. Does anyone even care, now?

Actual death toll of George W. Bush's personal-authority (peacetime) invasion of Iraq: 655,000!?!? (And counting, obviously.)

Also, this sentence is telling: "Conspiracy theorists still have some material to work with, though." "Still"? What are you, funny now? Read the rest (if you're bored) here. Then see how far behind that blogger is by digging here.

Sheesh. Goes to show you the Internet age is still home to plenty of intellectual laziness/inertia.

GO SEE THIS MOVIE NOW! I saw it yesterday and it's excellent; it's been somewhat improved from the preview form seen on Bob's tour, particularly in the second half. Take ANYONE you can get to go with you, expecially your CPA, lawyer, IRS agent, judge, or other "tax professional" friend/neighbor/relative/whatever. I guarantee it will make an impact on them.

Clinton Street Theater

(I added this for CW, who reminds me that I actually do have some readers out there, even tho this blogger site won't allow any of them to put comments here. But I really added it for YOU! You need to see this movie!)
