Following the Tonkin copycat incident in the Strait of Hormuz for which the Pentagon fell over itself, in its hurried attempt to tell the world about the nefarious regimes (Iran not US) attempts to provoke a third world war by loitering menacingly close to the US Fleet.

Of course the world would not see the absurdity of 5 little speedboats threatening world peace by aggressively provoking those innocent US nuclear and chemical armed battleships that were harmlessly going about their business of trespassing into Iranian waters to parade their WMD’s in Ahmedinajad’s face.

However now that the US Navy has retracted the allegation that Iran has harassed the US warships probably due to the blatancy of just how ridiculous they appeared in the eyes of the whole planet Bush, although still adamant that the incident represented a threat to the planet, has now decided to prepare us for something of far more significance than the 5 little boats farce and his language heralds the possibility of another much more serious and major event.

Bush said he would hold Iran responsible if American ships were attacked in the Gulf, he also threatened that serious consequences will await Iran if their forces confront US warships in the Persian Gulf.

This kind of language is that expected of someone setting up another event and we may be faced with the possibility of an incident on par with the USS Liberty of June 8 1967. It would come as no surprise that such an occurrence could indeed unfold. It would certainly be expected that the White House Coop could be capable of such a sinister and devious tactic.

Given that Afghanistan allegedly hid a terrorist that we never found who Bush accused of being behind 911, Iraq allegedly hid WMDs that we never found and also aided the Afghan troglodyte to carry out 911, North Korea allegedly printed fake $100 dollar bills that we found no evidence of, Is it any surprise that any of the accusations levied against Iran have all been found to be false war mongering exercises.

Now the US troops may have a far more serious enemy to worry about in the battlefield. Their own government.

Exclusive: Blair takes on money spin by Trevor Murphy

Tony Blair has announced today that he will take a part time advisers job on Wall Street with JP Morgan to provide political and strategic advice and take part in client events (AKA insider trading).

Teflon refused to disclose his earning from the position but did say it was just one of a number of positions he would be filling in the private sector.

It is obviously not too far off into the future when the war monger/genocidal megalomaniac/peace envoy will be needed to officially run world bank or IMF to take over the Wolfowitz line.

JP Morgan are running short of market manipulators these days and it fits in well with Blairs standard career path to date to chase the money (no pun intended) and put the needs of his pocket before any human rights pretensions he may exude in his current role as Saint Anthony of the middle east. His old buddy Brown also sold the British gold reserves to the Rothchilds when the gold market was at an all time low losing some £2 billions for the British Tax payer and it saddles up well with the JP Morgan Chase old turf of manipulating the Gold market like that of 2003 which resulted in the anti trust law suit that was filed in New Orleans which accused them of conspiring with Barrick Gold Corp, Toronto (Canada’s largest gold producer) to actively manipulate the price of gold at the expense of individual investors and making $2 billion (US) profits in the process. The claim was brought by Blanchard and Co. of New Orleans representing its clients who bought gold bullion.

According to CBC news, Blanchard alleged that “Barrack and J.P. Morgan injected millions of additional ounces of gold into the market so that the companies made $2-billion US in short-selling profits “by suppressing the price of gold at the expense of individual investors.”

“Since the end of 1987, when the collaboration between Barrick and J.P. Morgan began, the growth of global income and wealth would have lifted the gold price to approximately $740 US if the price had been able to respond to the normal laws of supply and demand,” Blanchard chief executive Donald Doyle said in a statement. “If gold had kept pace with inflation, the price today would be approximately $760 US,” Doyle said. Gold was quoted at $342.70 US that week, up $4.70 US. Pattern emerging here.

Ironically though when Brown, then Chancellor under Teflon Tony, decided to inform only a select handful of Britains top gold traders of his decision to flog off half the British Gold reserves at a knock down price back in May 1999 in the Bank of England’s meeting rooms, Brown himself did not attend. However Martin Stokes, former vice-president at JP Morgan, who WAS present, said: “I was surprised they had chosen the auction method. It indicated they did not have a real understanding of the gold market.” according to the Times April 15 2007. Although Peter Fava head of precious metal dealing at the HSBC said “the timing of the decision was ludicrous. We told them you’re going to push the price of gold down before you sell. We thought it was a disastrous decision. We couldn’t understand it”

Even though they warned at the time that gold moved in decade long cycles and at that point in time the value was at a decade low and was due to increase in value anyway, Brown refused to heed the advice. They warned that if they announced the timing and the amounts the gold price would plunge. Bank of England officials at the time also said that Brown appeared “uninterested in their expert advice” and it was a decision reached by Brown and his “inner circle”.

JP Morgan must have known then they could be on to a good thing with Blair for the future. Only two years earlier he pranced through the doors of number 10 for the first time to the tune “things can only get better” and for him they certainly did.

Since then the price of gold has trebled.

Smacks of insider trading, doesn’t it?

It won’t be long till The North American Union kicks in and the Amero currency is forced on the people of the union and with such obviously individually patriotic entities as Blair/Brown, JP Morgan, The Rothchilds and Canadas Barrick gold, et al, all combined one wonders who is looking out for the interests of the common people of the respective countries of the union.

It now only remains to pull Mexico’s Carlos Slim Helu now the world’s richest man into the club, which will probably be another job for Saint Blair.

Slim made his fortune as a monopoly holder on the Mexican land-line telephone market. One wonders how this one will fit into the elites social club.

When asked what it was like to be (at the time) the worlds second richest man, Slim famously said while comparing himself to Warren Buffet, the tycoon who at that time pledged US $1.5 billion dollars a year to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation that Slim overtook to become the number two.

“Our concept is more to accomplish and solve things, rather than giving-that is not going around like Santa Claus … poverty isn’t solved with donations.”

Well there it is then, Common theology already. He’ll fit in just fine with the rest of the planetary manipulators who have the gall to call themselves our representatives.

Good luck with your new job Tony, and that is meant with all the same sincerity you felt for the 1.5 million innocent men women and children of Iraqi spread across the mass graves of the once beautiful Mesopotamian landscape in your quest for your place in the history books, of which I can assure you, in the same footpath as other such philanthropists as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, et al you have deservedly achieved already.


Blair’s chameleonic path to divinity by Trevor Murphy

Exclusive: The Benazir Bhutto assassination by Trevor Murphy

Are we perhaps all to quick to jump on the US government line that “an enemy of the US” was responsible for the death of Benazir Bhutto.

Bush in the words that have become the ‘broken record’ that has become all too tiresome of his reign referring to those responsible for the assassination, words that in any other circumstance would clearly refer to his own administration when he calmly utters, “murderous extremists who are trying to undermine Pakistan’s democracy.”

The FBI were immediately on the case with spokesman Richard Kolko who claimed the FBI “continues to work with our U.S. intelligence community partners reviewing the Al Qaeda claims for responsibility for any intelligence value. The validity of those claims are undetermined.”

It’s really considerate of those boys at the Al Qaeda network to wrap up the investigation so neatly for the boys in the Whitehouse so they can continue their murderous campaign against the innocent civilians in Afghanistan unhindered.

Two people that had threatened to kill her, according to the Times, “Baitullah Mehsud, a top militant commander fighting the Pakistani Army in South Waziristan, who has ties to al-Qaeda and the Afghan Taliban.”


“Haji Omar, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban, who is also from South Waziristan and fought with the Afghan Mujahidin against the Soviets in Afghanistan.”

What we should remind ourselves of constantly is that The Al Qaeda network was created by the CIA and financed by the US and the Taliban fought against the soviets with CIA backing.

It should be remembered also that these organisations fall in and out of favour with the US administrations as often as the wind changes direction. Compare the current “Knights of Almeriya” part of the Baghdad Brigade Sunni militia who are now Armed and funded by the American forces who were shown on British TV only last week to show the unity we have now achieved between us. These were until recently ‘insurgents’ who murdered and maimed allied forces, but now they are good terrorists because they are our terrorists, so we can now issue them with AK-47’s to maim and murder anyone they choose. One can only speculate whatever other murderous equipment we have gleefully handed over to them in our pursuit of the so called “hearts and mind” propaganda.

However they do go on to make some further inferences that point the finger further into Pakistani government thus:

“Analysts say that President Musharraf is unlikely to have ordered her assassination, but that elements of the Army and intelligence service stood to lose money and power if she became prime minister. The ISI includes some Islamists who became radicalised while running the American-funded campaign against the Soviets in Afghanistan and were opposed to her on principle. Saudi Arabia is also thought to have frowned on Ms Bhutto as being too secular and Westernised and to have favoured Nawaz Sharif, another former Prime Minister.”

Why were we in Afghanistan to begin with? Weren’t we chasing that nasty troglodyte on the kidney dialysis machine who was far to preoccupied with the downfall of the imperialist infidels? Wouldn’t it really upset the applecart if some information had come to light that Bin Laden was no longer a threat anymore? Wouldn’t it mean that the Billions being gleamed off by the Bush/Cheney Coop and such philanthropically inclined organisations as Halliburton, the Carlyle group et al would all be faced with the cessation of the cash cow that is Afghanistan, and lets not forget that pretty much all of the US population was duped into believing there was some conspiratorial connection between Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein who plotted to destruction of the US between them (never mind the fact that they were sworn enemies who publicly issued death threats against each other)

On 2nd November 2007 in an interview with Sir David Frost Benazir Bhutto specifically mentions the name “Omar sheiqh” and she claims he is “the man who murdered Osama Bin Laden.”

Wouldn’t that mean that the British and American troops should now be brought home from Afghanistan and Iraq as a result? That would really upset the money merry-go-round for Big business that those countries represent, wouldn’t it?

See: Frost over the World: Benazir Bhutto 02 Nov 07 (video; bin Laden)

Scroll the video toward the sixth minute to hear her make the statement.

All throughout the mainstream media we are seeing finger pointing at Al Qaeda, Musharraf, Saudi Arabia, and the usual suspects, little realising that all these suspects are in fact tied inseparably to the US anyway.

Still all the while we are pushing for the Pakistan elections to go ahead on January the 8th anyway. Would it just be really silly of me to ask the question…why? Who’s in the running?

Maybe we should stand back for a moment and look not just at the finger that is pointing, but at the whole hand and see exactly where the other three fingers on the hand are pointing.

Friday 21st December 2007, Tony Blair converted to Catholicism at the private London chapel of Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’ Connor, the head of the Catholic church in England and Wales. Murphy O’ Connor said later “I’m very glad to welcome Tony Blair into the Catholic Church”. Obviously Mr Blair’s stance on genocide, gay issues, abortion haven’t affected his right of passage into the church. Continue reading

The Big Brother Agenda – Britain’s Spy Cameras and ID cards by Trevor Murphy

by Trevor Murphy

December 3, 2007

It is interesting to point out at this juncture, that 3500+ laws that have been passed, causing massive reduction of civil liberties, countless examples of infringements of human rights, the placement of over 4,000,000 cameras in England (accounting for over 20% of the worlds total of CCTV), police are now all equipped with head cameras and spy drones flying over our cities watching our every move and all over the country councils are introducing spy cameras in our bins to ensure ‘the correct amount of recycling’ (it’s the stuff of pure science fiction movies depicting a world hundreds of years into a sinister future) the introduction of shameful ID card that we will all be forced to carry thereby enriching the cronies of Blair to the tune of approximately £90.00 for every man woman and child in the country (the same ID cards, no doubt, that obviously stopped the Madrid train bombers if that story can be believed).

It should be noted as well that personal details on the ID database WILL be sold to the private sector to offset the cost that has rocketed beyond previous estimated figures according to Gordon Brown

( for more on that story).

There is now constant invasion of privacy through the monitoring of our phone calls, emails, faxes and every other form of contact we use without warrant, now even local councils can monitor texts and phone calls, all permissible under the Regulation of investigatory powers act, the monitoring of our whereabouts through our oyster cards and mobile phones, Our councils have all been granted permission to share private and personal information under the freedom of information act, which of course the Mps have exempted themselves from under the guise of protection for their constituents though it is common knowledge that their expenses and fraudulent mortgage claims are the real excuses behind the measures. It is much more important to undercover real crime of public interest by passing laws that give the department of work and pensions the right to look into all bank accounts of unemployed or disabled people on benefits, so a major investigation is awaiting those of you who decide to sell your old CD collection on eBay or boot sale all your old belongings that you are actually selling at a loss despite government claims that you are somehow fiddling the system. Jack straws refusal to disclose his expenses and be the catalyst that enforced the exemption of MP’s from any obligation to do so, regardless of which party the MP represents, which might explain the lack of opposition in parliament as was also the case in the vote for MP wage rises and other incentives to uphold the solidarity of silence in the ‘good old boys club’ of the upper echelons of decent and honest society.

It has been proposed that every traveller is to be fingerprinted and I have personally had my image scanned through a world wide database and have witnessed an incentive agenda at Heathrow airport in the now standard three hour queuing regardless of destination since the Blairite cattling systems inception. In a queue that had already remained at a complete standstill for over an hour on arrival from a European flight, a restless and increasingly irritable surge of weary travellers grumbled at the inhuman treatment, and one obviously seasoned traveller asked a staff member if the Iris machine was operational (Identification through scans of the eyes) and on receipt of a positive reply quickly burst from the mob and raced forth though was rapidly chased by a number of others all too willing to throw away the last remaining embers of freedom to escape the inhumanity that is now the airport norm in England. It is only a matter of time before our DNA will be used as a standard identification means by which to travel. Presently there are X-ray machines at all of our airports which subject each and every person to illegal radiation levels for which the BMA has attempted (unsuccessfully surprisingly) to reprimand the government. They stated that it is illegal to subject anyone to the levels of radiation emitted from these machines without the proper medical authority or medical reason. i.e. when you have a medical problem which requires MEDICAL attention.

It should also be pointed out that you do have the right to refuse this inhumanity and instead opt for a body search. However whether you are willing to take the chance on upsetting someone in the midst of a power trip who also has the right to insert their hand further into your body cavities than you would allow a surgeon without anaesthesia (or indeed a partner without having first paid for dinner and a reasonable bottle of wine) is your own choice.

DNA samples being collated on children as well as adults, almost 3.5 million total (including 600,000 under 16’s) as at the end of 2005 and deliberately ignoring the fact that it is as unreliable as the evidence that put away the Birmingham 6 and Guildford4 (It’s phenomenal that you and I can shake hands and you decide to go and kill someone but my DNA is left at the scene) We have the biggest database of DNA on the planet (we seem to be holding a lot of these very ominous records of late). Even if proven innocent of a crime the DNA sample is being withheld. Mp’s have been exempted from this measure. On the 27 th August the Telegraph ran a story about 550,000 database mistakes when it transpired false or misspelt names had been entered into the database of the current estimated total 4,000,000 names. This means that 14% of the information is incorrect. To look at it another way that is reprehensive of a figure higher than that of every sample taken since the end of 2005 when the total stood at 3.5 million, or it could be represented by the total of under 16’s on file.

( for the full story).

There have already been cases of corrupt police officers ‘placing’ DNA samples at crime scenes and there have been television reports of innocent people being acquitted because evidence of police DNA planting has been discovered and it is not a new phenomenon. In 1999 A man convicted for 14 years on an armed robbery charge had his conviction overturned in the court of appeal. George Ellis 38 from East London was originally convicted on DNA (saliva) samples found on masks yet always maintained the evidence was planted. Lord chief Justice Rose said that the evidence had been placed and The judges ruled the conviction unsafe. for the full story.

Planting DNA evidence as stated previously is not a new phenomenon nor is it restricted to Britain and many of the Police forces here may have indeed taken notes from the worldwide examples although it is becoming increasingly difficult to find information on British examples because of censorship online.

There is an ample history of police ‘placing’ forensic evidence at crime scenes so there is no reason to assume that they will abuse this facility in the same fashion and all those who would lean toward advocacy of the death penalty should be reminded of this fact. You would do well to remember that one day it just might be might be you on the stand for the convenience of a quick conviction to clear up the detection rate of a police service pushed for numbers. A single strand of hair is enough to frame somebody for murder or even the most minute sample of spittle will do the same.

In the Irish community of Britain in the seventies and eighties it was common knowledge that when in custody for any reason, ones hands were to be kept in ones pockets at all times. This was in the event police would surprise the detainee and throw something at them whilst being interrogated. The concern here was firearms at cetera and the hope was the restriction of the hands would lessen the chances of leaving prints on an items never before seen by the detainee. This was not an urban legend and was the result of plentiful examples of police framing. Presently we have a 28 day detention period which has been abused copiously and we still do not learn despite some harsh lessons in the past. Even with the detention period of the time, The Guildford four and Birmingham six and a multitude of other cases were tortured and beaten until they signed confessions and it is widely known that there is absolutely no requirement to hold a person for the 90 day proposed period other than for torture and ensuring all evidence of it can have time to be concealed. Even a broken bone can mend in that time. The current ‘softening’ of this stance to the 58 day period should not be taken with the apathetic “At least it’s not as bad as 90 days” view and should be greeted with the same suspicion.

The Police have always been known for resorting to this and also abusing each and every law that has been passed. Stop and search laws mean that every ethnic minority can be harassed without hindrance from civil rights groups. In 2005 there was a case of octogenarian Walter Wofgang who was detained under the prevention of terrorism act for heckling Jack Strawat the Labour party conference. 600 other protesters were arrested under the act and a total of 895 for the year 2005.

Under the prevention of terrorism act all protesters to any event are now experiencing this act being abused to quell any and all protests including the protests at the London arms convention which ironically began on 9/11 the year. The Heathrow airport climate protestors for which BAA secured a high court bid for an injunction to stop the activists on Monday august 6 2007 ,including a local parish priest. This led to plentiful arrests and detentions under the act and regardless of whether one agrees with the opinions or not of the protestors, It should be noted that is now solely current government taxation agenda that is the driving force behind the Climate change issue that is currently ‘guilting’ the public into submission to what is about to become the biggest financial scam perpetrated against the poor since the introduction of VAT and is increasingly turning the public against an otherwise commendable subject, because to debate it in any fashion has become tantamount to Holocaust denial.

We now have laws that allow bailiffs to break and enter into our homes to remove goods whether or not we are there, of course the fact that the government itself accounts for over 80% of all debt owed might just have some bearing on that. We now have a complete public smoking ban which was NOT on the mandate in their last election manifesto contrary to popular belief. Being myself a non smoker, (or ex-smoker of almost a decade) I am more than delighted to wake up in the morning having visited the local on the previous night without the stench on my clothes reminiscent of a bath in an ash tray, however I do not feel that smokers are second class creatures that deserve to be relegated to the unenclosed quick fix Wendy house eyesore that adorns the local pub car parks in the middle of winter. (that’s exactly why you were given the ban in July and not Christmastime folks) Interesting to note as well that noise complaints have risen in percentages as fast as the Zimbabwe inflation rate since all those smokers are now puffing in the gardens and doing such ridiculously unsocial things as …em..socialising. Now smoking may be seen as an unsocial act but in some circles so is drinking, and in others even singing and yes I have heard the ‘BAN’ brigade call for the cessation of those things too. In fact there are some cretinous hermits living obviously out of their depth amongst other human beings who will call for the banning of any and everything (who are just ripe for the picking for the story at the end of the 6 o’ clock news which leads thus… ‘some swift government action has been called for to tackle……[insert your choice of subject here…feeding of pigeons in Trafalgar square or something just as pressing]….’and we have Mr 60 year old living with mother to talk to us …’ this kind of thing panders to the rabble, who shout at statements made in Tellytubbies they might disagree with. The ‘shouldn’t be allowed’ mob The list of human rights that we are being stripped of is endless and we are being conned by the media into believing it’s a good thing mainly because of stories harping on about how “some ‘have a go hero’ is arrested while the mugger goes free because of human rights loopholes”, or the endless “look what these immigrant scum are doing to us and we can’t remove them because of European human rights issues” gutter press racist headlines to encourage the knee jerk reactionists to fill up the ‘sun says’ columns with finely chosen sound bites of ‘dump the Magna Carta’ rally calls to an ever more pliant and naive public who I have heard make such insane and ridiculous statements as …..

“We should be prepared to give up some liberties to protect our freedom”.

Legal aid has more or less been abolished, you cannot claim it if you are unemployed and you happen to own your own home, you must pay from the equity in your home, so it is for all intents and purposes an open door for unscrupulous solicitors and barristers to hang in as long as they can while the property market is still flush. One couldn’t imagine they would do such a thing of course. (If I could get my tongue any further into my cheek, I think I’d be quite capable of performing my own root canal.)

All this New World Order is in place under Teflon Tony’s watch setting out the biggest big brother society in history and bolstered by the removal of our right to protest in the capital, a measure only heard of in such societies as Burma (currently of world condemnation for precisely those types of measures), China and the now notorious Tiananmen square, and who could forget such diplomatic nuggets as Romania’s Nikolai Chauchesku in his attempts to quell the voices of the masses. All this taken into account, Wouldn’t it be funny if we found out that George Orwell’s real name was actually Blair. That really would be priceless wouldn’t it.

Benjamin Franklin once said….

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
