Book Review: The Hunt for Zero Point (2001) and Behind the Flying Saucers (19

Inside the classified world of ‘antigravity’ technology
By Nick Cook, reviewed by Brian R. Wright [my rating 6/10]

Reviewer’s Note: Beginning today as 2019 approaches, I’ve decided to shorten significantly most of my new book reviews and movie reviews. This will no doubt please a number of readers, who typically have not the time to spend reading long discussions of what someone else thinks of a book or movie that they may consider taking in. There will be exceptions, of course, mainly when I feel a book is so important that it needs a thorough under-standing. The fact is, that generally I lack the time as well. — brw

It did take considerable time to read The Hunt for Zero Point; I was determined. Mainly, I was kept on the hook by a series of tantalizing research cycles from the author, Nick Cook, as he traveled around the world. English journalist Cook is, or was at the time he wrote the book, the Aviation Editor of a prestigious aerospace magazine, Jane’s Defence Weekly. So he could knock on doors many other researchers wouldn’t even know about.

At the same time, I felt a certain repetitiveness as he kept referring, then back and forward, to one line of investigation and personnel or another… many of the individuals looking into antigravity phenomena being renowned scientists, high corporate and defense officials, offbeat geniuses working out of garages and basements, etc. The other main problem, as I see it, is right from the gitgo, Cook also doesn’t bring up antigravity propulsion or power systems as originating from other intelligent beings (OIBs or ETs). His focus is on human engineering and skunk-works—for example, he spends an inordinate number of pages on what the Germans were doing in WW2.

Many of Cook’s forays produce fascinating information on experimental results as well as antigrav technology being incorporated in stealth aircraft today. But nothing that I can see that accounts for sightings of numerous craft that can stop on a dime from thousands of miles per hour, make a right angle turn and head off at the same speed. These are definitely OIB craft, and my sense is that more ‘mainstream’ ufologists—e.g., Dr. Stephen Greer and Richard Dolan—believe the ETs have mastered antigravity, and humans have reengineered some antigravity tech for the super-dark so-called Secret Space Program.

Movie Review: Children of Men (2006)

Children of Men (2006)___8/10
Tyranny and terror in a world of the “death of birth”

Directed by Alfonso Cuarón
Screenplay by Alfonso Cuarón
Based on the novel by P.D. James

Clive Owen …. Theo Faron
Julianne Moore …. Julian Taylor
Michael Caine …. Jasper Palmer
Chiwetel Ejiofor …. Luke
Charlie Hunnam …. Patric
Claire-Hope Ashitey …. Kee

Children of Men is an escape thriller set in a dystopian England 20 years into the future, where for reasons that are never made explicit women of the world stopped having children (ca. 2009).  While the continents crumble into chaos, England holds on through an extreme xenophobic (foreigner-bashing) police state.

Sounds depressing, right?  Well, sure.  But the plot is tight and interesting, and high hopes counter the dangerous bleakness.

Londoner Theo Faron (Owen), a former peace activist with a reasonably comfortable position in the government, has a run-in with his still-revolutionary (kind of a pro-immigrant movement known as Fish) ex-wife, Julian (Moore).  She wants him to use his connections to help smuggle an illegal immigrant Kee (Ashitey) out of the country.

Kee has miraculously conceived and is close to bearing her child.  The Fishes are loosely associated with a sea-faring group called The Human Project, which has arranged to accept Kee with the goal of restarting the species.  In addition to providing the transit papers, Theo winds up as Kee’s escort.

The everpresent state cameras and police are always on their tails, then an internal Fish power struggle threatens to upend the mission.  Their route to the sea is full of obstacles.  Theo and Kee, with a woman serving as Kee’s birth coach, make their way into the woods where Theo’s longtime friend, Jasper (Caine) sets them up for the final leg.

Guest Column: The Liberating Truth about the Income Tax

Put CtC and ‘educated filing’ in your Christmas stocking this year and from now on
By Kevin Flanagan

Editor’s note: Still awaiting edits and approval from Mr. Flanagan… and when they arrive, I’ll incorporate. This was pulled from one of the CtC (ref. Pete Hendrickson’s watershed book, Cracking the Code) forums and I haven’t seen a more succinct and to-the-point presentation yet. If I’m the ‘man on the street,’ I’m hooked. This one hits the SWEET SPOT. [Handy single-sheet PDF version for handing to those you like located here.]
— brw

Go to LostHorizons (dot) com and get the book Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation  in America. Best $33.95 you will ever spend.

Learn how you can LEGALLY keep all of your property every year (which is what the framers of the Constitution intended, that a man’s labor would never be violated).

The federal income tax is actually written as an excise tax—because a direct tax without apportionment would be unconstitutional [the 16th amendment did not change this]. Excise taxes can only target narrowly defined activities and must be avoidable. Think cigarette tax, if you don’t want to pay it, then don’t smoke.

The activity that the federal income tax targets is the exercise of Federal Privilege. To put it simply and bluntly, the only people who technically owe federal income tax are the ones who have federal earnings; i.e. working for or contracting with the federal government or one of their federal corporations (post office, FDA, etc) or instrumentalities (railroads, national banks, etc.), or receiving federal payments such as Social Security (though most SS benefits are typically specifically excluded from income tax on the 1040). This has been true ever since the first income tax was enacted by Abraham Lincoln in 1862.

The great scam of the IRS was in convincing all companies, not just those federally connected, to begin withholding during WWII—before then, less than 4% of the American adult population paid federal income taxes (Congressional reports from that time period detail this). Most companies complied, not knowing they weren’t legally/technically required to do so. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: Does it ever occur to you…

Stream-of-consciousness to fantasy football colleagues on hazards of NFL on TV
By Brian R. Wright

I can’t help feeling, whenever I’m watching an NFL football game, that I have voluntarily submitted my brain to be washed and beat dry with a dirty broom. I’ve entered a programmed reality where it is practically mandatory to check one’s own “I” at the doorstep. Sit still for a barrage of images and sounds with one objective: total submission… in reward for which I can have this magnificent illusion of collective acceptance and material success, especially if my team(s) win.

Here’s how I put it to a friend of mine just last night:

“You should watch NFL football games, the whole purpose is to sell you excitotoxin-dripping crap to eat and drink, buy and use harmful pharmaceutical drugs, live in an unattainable, unsustainable Shangri-la with all the polished (mostly life-and-health-threatening) technologies and conveniences, with Stepford-Wife, cardboard-cutout families and neighbors, continually faking deep wholly externally contrived emotions of joy or sorrow or compassion, and launching into massive personal debt in coordination with our proudly unaccountable debt-junkie government… enabling it to manufacture and sell/deploy ginormous arsenals of weapons/personnel to destroy millions of ‘the Other’ real human beings (these days usually under full obeisance to its similarly sadistic, devil-worshiping pack of dogf***ing puppetmasters, the Apartheid state of Israel)–representing wholly made-up, bogus, overblown, false-flag threats to our freedom and to our sanctimonious, brain-dead, point-and-grunt, perceptual-emotional, shopaholic way of life.

“Hallelujah to the F16 fly bys!

“Morbidly obese Big Brother with nuclear warheads, who can resist?

“… or have the slightest question of OUR NATION’S hallowed collective virtue.

“Put me in, coach! Cheeseburger, cheeseburger. Coke, coke.

“Kill the Muslim sand negroes…

“… you truthers rot in hell.

“USA! USA! USA!”

And these are our countrymen? I gave up cable TV last year, but I bought an antenna this year to be able to ‘watch the games.’ I’m not sure I’ll  be physically or psychologically able to subject myself to the above subliminal ravages much longer. Maybe the Super Bowl in February. Fact is, nobody in my Fantasy Football Land falls into the category of complete unquestioned blind obedience to authority, but I’m afraid they ARE suckers for flag-waving official stories, however absurd. Such as 9/11. They’ll come around. All halfway normal, decent humans will.

THEN… welll, remember back when cable carried no advertising!? My kinda football TV.

 

Brian’s Column: George HWB, You Manifestly Deserve the Best…

… front row seat that Hell has to offer, I only wish it weren’t solely a metaphor
By Brian R. Wright

Amazingly, my preawakened dear twin ones who still relish the powder puffs and crocodile tears of official mainstream Sunday TV hagiography for recently departed grand poobahs of US officialdom accused me of fomenting hate and worse when I passed along this understated Tweet from Ms. Caitlin Johnstone: https://twitter.com/caitoz/status/1069017601903226881.

Part of the problem lies in the fact that neither of my loved ones uses or presumably likes Twitter. In any case, I felt the need to follow up to give the overwhelming substance that indicts the pontificating paragon of the New World Order, George Herman Walker Bush.

“Okay, I’ll just send the pertinent Webpage link henceforth, in this case, not be hatin’, rather carryin’ the deepest message of LOVE for all the victims of any particular departed NWO beast or other tyrant the mainstream chokes on in their teary accolades. From Caitlin:

If a man kills a lot of people, then his legacy is that of a mass murderer. There is nothing else anyone could possibly accomplish in his lifetime that could eclipse the significance of the act of violently ripping the life out of thousands of human bodies. I don’t care if you started a charity, if you gave a graduation speech, or if you loved your wife very much. If you committed war crimes, knowingly targeted civilian shelters, and deliberately targeted a nation’s civilian infrastructure to gain a strategic advantage after the conclusion of a war based on lies, then you are a mass murderer who may have also done some other far less significant things during the rest of your time on this planet. That is who you are.

“The column only touches the Iraq I aggression highlights of this particular monster–look up depleted uranium. When any of these mass-atrocity generators or collaborators bites the dust, the only sane response is relief… and mourning for his dead or damaged prey. It’s our responsibility as rational beings caring for our fellow humanity to know the facts, expose any remaining crimes, and remember those upon whom he committed the horrific acts he directly perpetrated and/or facilitated.

“Failure to do so is betrayal of the victims.

“I’m sure you both agree we want nothing but love for the millions of them.”

Guest Column: Liberty Comments on Cryptocurrency

IMF reveals that cryptocurrency is the New World Order end game
By Brandon Smith [c/o Bob Livingston Letter, here]

There are two kinds of globalist schemes: First, there are the schemes they spring on the public out of nowhere haphazardly in the hopes that the speed of the event along with some shock and awe will confuse the masses and make them psychologically pliable. This strategy loses effectiveness quickly, though; the longer the plan takes to implement, the more time the people have to reconsider what is actually happening and why.

Second, there schemes they slowly implant in the collective psyche of the citizenry over many years, much like subliminal messaging or hypnosis. This strategy is designed to make the public embrace certain destructive ideologies or ideas as if these ideas were their own.

The cryptocurrency scam is of the second variety.

I have been suspicious of the cryptocurrency narrative of a “decentralized and anonymous monetary revolution” since 2009, when I was first approached by people claiming to be “representatives” of bitcoin and asked to become a promoter of the technology. After posing a few very simple questions and receiving no satisfactory answers, I declined to join the bandwagon or act as a frontman.

The “currency” was backed by nothing tangible (and no, math is not a tangible resource). Anyone could create a cryptocurrency out of thin air that had attributes identical to bitcoin, therefore there was no intrinsic value to the technology and nothing stopping the creation of thousands of similar currency systems, eventually making bitcoin worthless. The scarcity argument for crypto was fraudulent. And, in the event of a grid down or an internet lock-down scenario (as has occurred in the past in nations under crisis), crypto was useless because the blockchain ledger was no longer accessible.

Guest Column: All-American Hero Being Destroyed by the Global Superstate

Hedges: Assange Has Done More To Expose American Crimes Than Any Other News Organization, by Tyler Durden/Christopher Hedges

Source at Zerohedge here.

Julian Assange’s sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has been transformed into a little shop of horrors. He has been largely cut off from communicating with the outside world for the last seven months. His Ecuadorian citizenship, granted to him as an asylum seeker, is in the process of being revoked. His health is failing. He is being denied medical care. His efforts for legal redress have been crippled by the gag rules, including Ecuadorian orders that he cannot make public his conditions inside the embassy in fighting revocation of his Ecuadorian citizenship.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has refused to intercede on behalf of Assange, an Australian citizen, even though the new government in Ecuador, led by Lenín Moreno – who calls Assange an “inherited problem” and an impediment to better relations with Washington – is making the WikiLeaks founder’s life in the embassy unbearable. Almost daily, the embassy is imposing harsher conditions for Assange, including making him pay his medical bills, imposing arcane rules about how he must care for his cat and demanding that he perform a variety of demeaning housekeeping chores.

Guest Column: Scary Election 2018

Taking the Long View; No American Need Worry if They Stand for the Law
By  Pete Hendrickson

And Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Election Day, 2018. A Bit Scary, Right?

It’s particularly fitting this year that election day comes so soon after Halloween…

SO, ARE YOU WORRIED about the election outcome this week? You should be!

After all, the unprincipled, progressivist nut-case Democrats might regain power.

Or, the unprincipled, neo-con nutcase Republicans might retain power.

Whichever way it goes, as things stand now, you and your kids are going to be screwed.

YOU SEE, AS THINGS STAND NOW, the winners, of either party, will find themselves with far more money in the treasury than is needed for their Constitution duties. Those duties include little more than courts, actual national defense, modest Depts. of State and Treasury, a Post Office and a Patent Office, a small immigration bureaucracy and a few other offices of similarly focused function and dimimutive dimension.

There is FAR more in the US treasury than is needed for these lawful obligations of the United States. The excess will be spent (after some serious nest-feathering) on a host of things inimical to your interests.

That excess will finance an army of spies surveilling you; an army of “security thespians” impeding and dictating to you; an army of soldiers making enemies for you in other countries which are no threat to you; and swarms of petty functionaries with clipboards which endlessly harass you and eat out your substance in myriad other ways, as well.
