TIDBIT: THIS WEEK’S HONORABLE MENTIONS
Again, as always, a big thank you to all of you sharing articles and comments and speculations that drive this website. This one was spotted by B.H.:
This one intrigues me because Mr. Dawkins, with whom I once briefly tangled at the Oxford Union Society, appears to be reassessing things:
Atheists sound the alarm: Decline of Christianity is seriously hurting society
And S.D. shared this (grizzly) news:
Texas Planned Parenthood wanted to sell aborted baby livers for $750 each, Daleiden trial reveals
V.T. spotted this one about the death watch for Deutsche Bank:
R.M. saw this one, and with the recent multi-billion dollar sale of Airbus aircraft to India, and now this, America's role in civilian and military aerospace and aircraft will now face some serious competition from Messerschmi... er... I mean... Airbus:
C.M. found this one and it's enough to make you get angry:
As the Fed Throws Hundreds of Billions a Week at Wall Street Banks for Liquidity, JPMorgan’s IIF Can Afford to Buy El Paso Electric

Airbus UAV article: “From what we know about the program at this point in time, no flying airframe was ever built or tested. … Note that it looks like two large prototypes were built.”
On the other hand:
“USAF Unit Moves reveal Clues to RQ-180 Ops Debut” (Oct 24, 2019)
“Almost six years after Aviation Week first disclosed the existence of a large, classified unmanned aircraft developed by Northrop Grumman, there is a growing body of evidence that the stealthy vehicle is now fully operational with the U.S. Air Force in a penetrating intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) role.
Thought to be dubbed the RQ-180, the advanced design is believed to have been flying since 2010 and under operational test and evaluation since late 2014. According to new information provided to Aviation Week , the aircraft became operational with the recently reformed 427th Reconnaissance Sqdn. at Beale AFB, California, this year.”
The RQ-180 is the type of vehicle – unlike the more low-tech Lockheed RQ-170* Sentinel UAV – which is meant to go into near-peer enemy territory. It is an aggressive step ‘forward’. Also note that the RQ-180 is probably unarmed, but it takes little to build-in a small bomb/missile bay…
Funny about the purchase of that electrical company by JP Morgan, especially the american company General Electric has their own problems brought forth by Harry Markopolis(the same guy who submitted documents to congress and tried to alert people to the madoff fraud)
Corporate raiding is one thing,
Corporate hedging; another
J. P. Morgan buys El Paso Electric…
In listening to Dr. Farrell in a vid chat I picked up his recommendation: Wall Street and/the Bolshevik Revolution by Anthony C Hutton.
This line packs a lot of weight/Wall Street understood that the most efficient way to gain an unchallenged monopoly was to “go political” and make society go to work for the monopolists – under the name of public good and public interest.
So is a way to judge any political/economic “ism” to rank the degree of individual freedom versus the degree of centralized political control?
Also, the book emphasizes that allegiances may not always be what they are called, or appear.
“Atheist sound the alarm …”
This one triggered a response from me due to the articles reference and reverence for the “Enlightenment”.
Again, there’s been an uptick in this history being rewritten.
Tis the frame that accompanies these rewrites that raise my anger. So I’ll frame it this way:
The enlightenment was characterized by an uptick in human confidence in mankind’s ability to make sense of the world. That knowledge and reason, properly marshalled, would lead to a transparent natural social world. Simply put: a more “human” one.
Romantics wanted to put a dash of romance in the dignified air, to spice up human life styles.
Enter the technocrats, the biggest collectors and analysts of facts. Move over scientists! Business is taking over the facts and the analytical! They’re not wasting data to help mankind better their lives; not when the corporate person is at the head of the data trough!
Today Facebook’s abilities to gather facts would simply astound any of the Enlightenment philosophers; until they found that those facts lead to targeted advertising and newsfeeds for billions, drawing mankind further, and further away from real facts; further away from reason; and when it came to politics?
Facts are being harnessed for $$$; not knowledge and/or wisdom. Technocrats co=opted the Enlightenment for their own end$.
Why couldn’t facts and reason lead to more respect for mystery and humility? And why couldn’t mystery & humility lead to the search for more facts and clearer reason?
Robert, if I get this correctly we are looking at the real reason such a large and powerful group of secret society folk (Masonry, Jesuits, Illuminati, Scientologists, Mormons, Mafias of all sorts, Govt Agencies, Matla Knights, various religious folk and any others I missed) are held in such low regard. Their main selling point and dogma is their improvement of life for all humanity. And their pro-pagan-da is always how much society has benefitted.
In fact everyone but them feel the pinch of the golden collar they gradually squeeze down on everyone not in their club. Ironically, some of them feel the pinch too.
Any good solutions to this problem? It is the one problem, reaction, solution these secretive folk want to control and gatekeep us away from real solutions the most. Who, what, how, when and where do we dissolve the constraints and restraints on good people while getting some constraints and restraints set up on the folk doing ill to the rest of us?
I liked your “pro-pagan-da”!
Best I’ve heard to date is Dr. Farrell’s and Catherin Austin Fitts. Both; from my take on what they’ve said, recommend taking control of the culture by one’s own actions.
For example, what we’re doing now.
Each of us literally chooses, by his ways of attending to things, what sort of universe he himself shall appear to himself to inhabit. You & I are now making a decision on what to pay our attention to. The kind of attention you rely on, or the kind of attention you let atrophy; both ultimately becomes a decision about what you value as worth perceiving.
Finding ways to better mankind; and by extension, our own selves.
Of late, change is in the air; as if a message from the high on up, has instigated a new all-must-follow law..
Even though Frankenstein can escape death’s grip,
he cannot escape being updated.
In this case, mandatory stem cells will be required in any “Bring-Them-Back-Alive” recipes for the dead.
This “resurrection” they seek may indeed be truly horrifying. Just what do you fill such an empty vessel with?
I have the greatest respect for the Britons. They made the Runes. That is a feat.
Scandinavians have only the discounted version of the Runes, so we want the whole original system.
Scandinavians prefer to engineer their own kings from scratch. Runes are Harry Potter’s king recipe!
So the rune stone found in Minnasota British or Scandanavian? db
To make a king and a kingdom, one needs all the original Druidic Runes (34).
If one wants to make a king only, then 29 Runes will do.
The Viking Runes (16) can neither make a king nor a kingdom, only papal graffiti.
