Avril Lavigne and the Cure for Lyme Disease

Avril Lavigne

Avril was sick with lyme disease. Let us wish her a speedy recovery and post the cure so that no one else has to suffer needlessly. I’m doing this as a mitzvah for the goyim.

The combinations of (Sea) Salt and Vitamin C has been proposed as a treatment for the “very hard to treat” Lyme disease, partially based on the known anti-infective properties of salt.

Since our government has declared salt to be a danger many years ago, there has been an increase in disease and poor health in general.

There are many salt conspiracy theories. India won’t allow iodized salt. Iodine deficiency causes goiters. To this day there are many conspiracy theories about “mixed salt”. They say too much iodine causes infertility. Infowarrior Alex Jones sells nascent iodine by the bottle. If sea salt and Vitamin C cure lyme disease how bad could salt be?

Suspicious Suicides: The Gray State

Gray State

(NaturalNews) The creator of a not-yet-completed film about a central government takeover of society following a collapse and his family have been found dead in their Minnesota home, with authorities claiming that the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide.

As reported by the Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis, David Crowley, 29, his wife, Komel, 28, and their 5-year-old daughter were found in their Apple Valley home days ago after a neighbor called to report their bodies.

A statement from the Apple Valley police department said detectives so far were calling the deaths “an apparent murder-suicide.”

The deaths were reported by neighbor Collin Prochnow, who told authorities that he discovered the bodies, which were taken to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office for further evaluation.

The paper further reported that Prochnow initially went to the home to collect packages that had been gathering on the front steps. He told police that’s when he looked inside the home and saw the bodies. A dog was also inside the home.

Bodies had been there for days

The Star Tribune further reported:

Several neighbors said they thought Crowley may have been a military or ex-military member, and that he had close-cropped hair and tattoos. One neighbor said he thought Crowley worked at home doing screenwriting of some kind, and that his wife worked as a dietitian.

In a YouTube video, Crowley is credited as writer and director of a movie-in-progress, “Gray State.” The trailer shows scenes of a militarized police force, much gun violence and some kind of citizen insurgency. The trailer solicits online donors to help finance the project.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, along with the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office, are assisting local Apple Valley police in the investigation. Police have said they aren’t sure how long the bodies have been in the house, but Prochnow believes it has been since before Christmas because of the packages that had been gathering outside of the home. Also, Prochnow said he had not seen his neighbors since before Christmas Day, adding that they had lived in the home for about a year-and-a-half.

Other neighbors, Alice Hixson and her husband Bill, told the local paper that they have lived in the home across the street from the Crowleys for 21 years. They told reporters that they had seen the family in passing and that they had also seen the father playing with his daughter in the back yard.

“It’s such a grisly, gruesome thing,” Alice Hixson, a neighbor, said.

In the movie trailer, there are scenes where ordinary Americans are being forced to have identification technology implanted under their skin, so they can purchase food and other goods; scenes of police and National Guard attacking unarmed crowds and shooting some people in the back of the head; empty store shelves; police removing people from their homes during raids at night; and what appear to be “rebel” groups battling troops and police.

Towards the end of the trailer appear the words, “The Second American Revolution May Not Be Remembered,” followed by a male narrator voice. David Crowley appears in credits at the end of the two-plus minute trailer as the writer and director.

By consent or conquest

A synopsis of the film below the trailer on YouTube states, in part:

The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.

Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.

Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance — these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.

Suspicious Deaths: Michael Hastings

Michael Hastings

Was the investigative journalist’s car hacked before he died in a fiery car accident?

UNCONFIRMED: Though one prominent man thinks it might have been

The death of journalist Michael Hastings has been a boon for conspiracy theorists. The Rolling Stone and BuzzFeed writer, who wrote the piece that forced Gen. Stanley McChrystal to resign, died last Tuesday in a fiery car accident in Los Angeles. Even though police have said they suspect no foul play, that hasn’t stopped the typically wild-eyed types from espousing all sorts of crazy ideas about who might have wanted Hastings dead.

Richard Clarke is not wild-eyed. He’s the former U.S. national coordinator for security, infrastructure protection and counter-terrorism. But he’s just thrown a huge chunk of raw meat to those who wish to see conspiracy in every newsworthy event.

Could your connected car get hacked?

Clarke recently told The Huffington Post that Hastings’ single-car crash is “consistent with a car cyberattack.” According to Clarke, “It’s relatively easy to hack your way into the control system of a car.” Once in, he said, “you can do some highly destructive things,” like brake when the driver doesn’t want to or release an air bag.

He went on to say that a car cyberattack would be nearly untraceable, even if Hasting’s Mercedes hadn’t nearly melted because of the fire’s extreme heat.

Clarke also said that the Los Angeles police weren’t sophisticated enough to determine if Hastings’ car had been hacked. MSN News reached out to the department for comment but has so far not heard back.

In his interview with the Post, Clarke was quick to point out that he wasn’t a conspiracy theorist. “I’ve spent most of my life knocking down conspiracy theories,” he said. Even so, his remarks are no doubt going to add fuel to the fires that are already burning online.

UPDATE: Staff Sergeant Joseph Biggs, who befriended Hastings when the reporter was embedded in Afghanistan in 2008, does not seem convinced that the journalist’s death was an accident. Biggs told Fox News that Hastings, who died in a fiery single-car accident, drove “like a grandma.” He said that Hastings’ latest story was his biggest yet, and involved the CIA. And Biggs also said that Hastings’ fiancée, fellow journalist Elise Jordan, vowed to “take down whoever did this.”

The Assassination of JFK Jr.

The Reason JFK Jr
Was Murdered
From John Hankey
9-12-7

I’ve been engaging in an email correspondence with a health food store owner in Utah named True Ott, regarding John Kennedy Jr.’s final days. Ott says that John Jr. was murdered because he had come into possession, through Ott, of thorough and conclusive proof of George Bush Sr.’s direct involvement in the assassination of JFK. Ott says John was preparing to publish the information. The story Ott tells is incredible, and I certainly did not believe it the first time I heard it. However,…I’ve investigated and found that Ott is well known and respected nationally in the health food community. Ott is also listed on the Sierra Club and NRDC websites for the activism he claims brought him to the attention of George magazine. He has an important reputation as a respected environmental and health activist that is not helped by spreading ridiculous stories; and he assures me he wouldn’t jeopardize his reputation like this if the story weren’t true. You be your own judge as you read, below, what he said.

It has occurred to me, since speaking to Ott, that the day John died, he told his staff that “as long as I am alive, this magazine will publish.” When I first read this story, this seemed to me an over-the- top statement from someone who had not shown a life-and-death commitment to the magazine up to that point. Ott’s stunning story solves this and other important mysteries. I’ll finish this letter with the latest part of my correspondence with him.

Best wishes,

John

True writes as follows:

John:

I will never forget the phone call on the 4th of July weekend, 1999 – the phone call from John Jr. thanking me profusely for the information and the file. When he told me that a grand jury was to be convened and Bush was going to be indicted for the murder of his father, I tell you, I had goose bumps. For your review, here is an excerpt of what I wrote 3 years ago in my unpublished manuscript “Free at Last” concerning the event.

John, please understand that I appreciate your efforts – more than words can say. You can only imagine how thrilled I was to see your videos – for you were declaring what I had known as facts for many years – it is difficult to know the truth about national politics and power brokers when the majority of people (and the major media) all are complicit by their ignorance and willingness to accept the status quo. As Edmund Burke said: “The only thing needed for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing!”

In addition to the murder of John Sr., keep in mind the file also contained evidence concerning CIA orders for contract murders for witnesses of the event. There were over ten “collateral assassinations”, one of which was the Dallas PD detective that was the focus of the DVD I sent you (Two Men in Dallas). Did you get that ok?

The cabal in charge of this nation is so massive and so powerful, that none dare attempt to expose it. As my D.C. attorney has counseled me, the best we can hope for is a sort of “detente” – a live and let live attitude. I don’t like it, but it is the reality of life at this time. The cabal is composed of powerful Jewish banking families, with Mormon, Jesuit and Freemason allies. My attorney has flat out told me that publicizing “the file” will greatly shift the balance of “detente” – and more innocents will die. In short, the cabal doesn’t give a damn if we know, only if we attempt to do something meaningful about it.

In answer to your question – it was about a week after John’s plane went down. I had received about 8 calls from major news publications, (U.S. News and World Report, Time, Wall Street Journal, etc.) asking about reports that I had provided a file to John – “Did I, and what did the file contain?”. I denied all, and made no comment. It was at this time that George Magazine called me as well – I think it was the editor Richard, though I am not completely certain. He told me the story was “dead” and the magazine was folding. He also told me that all evidence went with John – and that their offices had been burgled. You are right of course, it doesn’t make sense that there were not any backup files – apparently they were taken as well. Again, this was a time of EXTREME CONCERN for me and my family – and I don’t remember a lot of the specific details clearly. I don’t mind telling you that I indeed feared for my life for at least a month. Please understand that I don’t believe I am paranoid – but when one verifies that ones phones have indeed been tapped, it makes one a bit concerned.

All my best to you my friend. Keep searching for all truth. (We need a copy of the Inquirer story.)

True Ott

The ” Las Vegas ” Files are Examined In 1995, I was going through my safe and file cabinets, and came across the sealed, manila envelope that had been placed in my trust by my financial planning client a decade earlier. I had completely forgotten about it. I called his home to see what he wanted me to do with it. His wife informed me that Mr. C. had suffered a stroke a year earlier, and was confined to a nursing home. He was in his 70’s now, and was not doing very well.

In short, she didn’t know anything about the “file” and suggested that I could just dispose of it.

I tossed it into the trash bin, but then thought that I should at least see what all the fuss was about. In many ways, I wish I had never opened it. It was a true “Pandora’s Box”, and I was shocked to read its contents. It was “file #5” of a group of 7 files called the “Gemstone” files. I don’t know what the other six files contained, but this one was a literal ball-buster. It was the FULL STORY of the CIA-planned and executed contract “hit” of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, president of the United States . It was full of very complete specifics, including such things as photostats of cancelled checks, travel vouchers, orders on CIA letterhead, personnel “lists” of participants, disposition of witnesses and evidence, etc. The problem was, I recognized the names of many of the key men who participated in the assassination, as well as the massive cover-up that followed.

These were not all Jewish organized crime bosses, some were men linked to my LDS church authorities and some were nationally prominent politicians in my beloved Republican Party! The file was extremely damning towards George HW Bush, who in 1963 was the CIA head in Dallas . The obvious involvement of the FBI and Dallas PD, and their subsequent squelching of information as outlined in the file made me physically sick. There was no person in Federal Law Enforcement that I could trust with this information, that is, IF IT WAS INDEED LEGITIMATE! At first, I refused to believe it could be legitimate at all. My paradigm of perception refused to believe it could possibly be factual. However, I could not understand WHY my “client” would have such a file, and WHY would he want it sent to Beverly Hills CA, as well as a notice sent to Hank Greenspan of the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, if my client happened to “die suspiciously?” Like I said, it was a definite “pandora’s box”, one that I soon realized was too big for me. I kept thinking I ought to shred its contents, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so.

The File Goes Home to John John.

During the summer of 1998, I was involved in actively protesting the expansion of Circle 4 Farm’s gigantic hog factory farm into Iron County . My grass-roots citizen’s organization CRSA (Citizens for Responsible and Sustainable Agriculture) had received a bit of national notoriety, with a number of AP wire stories circulating the nation. One such story caught the eye of a publication called George Magazine. The editor and staff contacted me and scheduled an appointment to meet and review my story.

The editor of George Magazine flew into Cedar City in his private plane to meet me, and shoot a photo spread. We spent the entire day, a Saturday, together. At the end of the day, at a local steak house, we sat down for a concluding meal.

Over salad, I had to confess to the editor that I had never even heard of, much less read a copy of George Magazine until he had called me. He reached into his briefcase and produced a copy. Looking at it, I was surprised to see that it was owned and founded by John Kennedy Jr.

I asked him about “John, and his politics.” I was told that John was a real “champion of the under-dog” and that was why they were producing the story on CRSA and me.

I commented: “I believe that my image of John is like most Americans. The enduring image of little `John-John’ courageously stepping forward and giving his best salute as the caisson carrying his father’s body slowly rolled by. Tell me, does John accept the `official Warren Commission’ account of the assassination, or does he think there was more to it? At this late date, does it even matter?”

The editor nodded and said: “Of course he doesn’t accept the Warren Commission, but there is not a lot he, or anyone else can do about it! And I guarantee you, it DOES INDEED matter, at least to him. It is one of his major goals in life to find out the Truth!”

I replied: “Has he ever heard of something called the `Gemstone Files’?” With that, the air became electrified. The editor laid down his salad fork and said: “What do YOU know about the `Gemstone’?”

“Oh, it just might be that I have a copy of file # 5. Does that interest you?” I casually volunteered. “You can’t be serious! Are you serious? Don’t kid about something like that! Where did you get it?” he almost screamed.

The dinner was immediately over, even though our steaks were just coming in from the kitchen. We had them placed into containers to take with us. The editor had to SEE the infamous Gemstone immediately. He couldn’t wait until the meal was finished.

It was late on a Saturday night in Cedar City, Utah. I handed him the file, and he offered to compensate me for it. I refused. I asked him only one thing in return; if the information proved out to be genuine, that I needed to know. I just wanted justice to be served, and the guilty parties prosecuted.

I was awakened the next morning at 5:00. John’s editor explained that he had been up all night reading the file. He had called John directly, and he was told to fly it immediately back to John. John had again offered to compensate me up to $10,000 for the lead. He felt it was that good. I politely refused, and gently reminded him of my earlier request. I just wanted to know if the information was genuine. To me, that would be payment enough.

The rest of 1998 went by quickly. The national political stage was being set. It looked like George W. Bush was seeking to secure the nomination to run against Al Gore.

On the 5th of July, 1999, my home phone rang. Joan answered it and said: “True, it’s for you.” As I answered it, a very polite masculine voice on the other end said: “Hello, True Ott, do you have a moment to speak? This is John Kennedy calling!”

I immediately asked him to hold while I went to the privacy of my home office to take his call. After a few minutes of small talk, he told me: “Well, I understand that you want to know what I think of your file. I want you to know that I have spent over six figures in private investigators to verify its contents. I can say to you without hesitation that its contents are indeed factual. As a matter of fact, because of this file, a federal grand jury will be convening within the next few weeks. It is my opinion, as well as my attorneys, that this federal grand jury will pass down an indictment against George Herbert Walker Bush for conspiracy to commit murder against my father, and will also indict others as the evidence unfolds. If George W. thinks he can run for dogcatcher after this grand jury convenes and his father indicted, he is sorely mistaken.”

I was thrilled, yet deeply saddened by John’s disclosures to me. I asked him how he felt about what he was about to do. Did he understand that it would shake American politics, especially the Republican Party to its very foundation?

He replied: “Yes, I do realize the gravity of the story and my accusations, but the guilty must be brought to justice.”

I pressed: “But Mr. Kennedy, how do YOU feel?”

The phone went silent for a minute or two. Then John replied: “I feel like a mighty weight has been lifted from my shoulders. For the first time in my life, I feel empowered. I feel my Father’s spirit beside me on this, and finally, I can exorcise a few demons from my life.” He was definitely emotional, and very close to tears. I knew that I was. I was a part of American history. I had helped a brother’s search for truth.

I warned him to be careful, that such actions were potentially very dangerous. He agreed, and said that he was “taking every precaution.”

Then, in a quiet voice, he asked me for my banking information. He wished to wire $50K to my account. I told him thanks, but no thanks. “Give it to charity,” I said, “I don’t think it right to accept money for such terrible information. I am totally satisfied knowing that the file went to the very person that needed it the very most! Above all, John, please BE CAREFUL!”

John Kennedy Jr. thanked me profusely, and said that he wished there were more people in America like True Ott. He said that some day, he would somehow return the favor. I liked that. It was good to have made a friend such as John Kennedy.

A little over two weeks later, on July 16, 1999, John Kennedy Jr., along with his wife and her sister, were killed in a plane crash en route to Hyannisport for a family wedding. My new friend was gone, and the guilty involved in BOTH murders have still not been punished. I know the truth, however. There is no doubt whatsoever, why John was killed. It was NOT an accident!

Hey True!

I appreciate your willingness to correspond on this difficult stuff. You raised a couple of issues.

I’m not trying to do better than John. I’m not him. I’m not in the same game or the same league. I am trying to do the best I know how. Which for me at this moment is telling the most important truth the best way I know how. Which, among other things, means telling the story as clearly and as persuasively as I can. I think your part of the story is powerful, important, and fascinating. But my experience in telling it to others is that, without the file, it is not credible.

Another issue, it seems to me, is that if John died for trying to tell that story, to avenge his death I would like to give the fullest meaning to his life. That means presenting that file.

I think my video shows that it is not necessary to have the file to tell the story of the murder of JFK Sr. I think it is necessary to tell the final chapter in the death of JFK Jr., because that chapter is not credible without it.

A separate issue, altogether, is that I had no idea you had spoken to anyone from George after the plane went down. I would very very much like to know all the detail there is about that conversation: Who called who? Why? How long after the plane crash? To say “the file went down with John” seems an obvious euphemism. How could they not have multiple copies? that is, how could several investigators and an entire magazine staff be working on it without each having copies of the materials they were investigating?

I’m surprised and grateful that you contacted me at all. I’m surprised and grateful that you gave me permission to discuss the story with others. You can’t be surprised that I would try as hard as I can to get all the information necessary to tell the story well.

thanks sincerely

John

Yes, the “original” file was/is copies of docs (bank statements, travel vouchers, cancelled checks, letters from Bush on Zapata letterheads, etc.). The mob had targeted Cuba as their gaming “mecca” – following the Bay of Pigs debacle, they moved with plan B – Las Vegas.

It was one of the George office staff who told me the file went down with John – (Don’t remember if it was Richard or someone else – only they were da–ed nervous.)

Here’s the kicker:

Even with “THE FILE”, John Jr. couldn’t get it done. What makes you think you or I could do any better??????? All my best,

Dear True

I’m grateful that you called me at all. But it sounds like I’m better off to shut my mouth about what you’ve told me, since, like many true stories, it’s so incredible and the other evidence is there in plain sight anyway. This new book, “Brothers,” further corroborates all the CIA-trained Cubans and mafia material in JFK II. But just looking at the face across from me at the table as I’m telling the story, to finish with “oh yeah, the files not available” just rips the carpet out from under any credibility the story had. Oh well. The story stands on the other evidence.

Since you brought it up, I’m very interested to know, please, who told you the original file went down in the plane. I assumed that the “original” was just photocopies of documents in any case. Were there original documents in the file?

John

“A. True Ott PhD” wrote:

The original file went down with John’s plane (at least that is what I was told).

The copied file sent to my D.C. attorney is simply not available – my immediate family is at risk – giving it to others would violate the “detente” agreement – columnist Jack Anderson evidently saw the file 5 or 6 years ago, and even he refused to open pandora’s box. Best to let sleeping dogs lie – the truth is that the crime cartel running this country is simply too big and too powerful for the common man to fight.

I reiterate what I told you on the phone ——- You figured it out —– the “Gemstone” file only gives complete confirmation to what you produced.

Of course it’s the truth, but the truth is often incredible, important truth almost always so. So, I have to find corroboration to make the story credible. I told my closest friend. He’s puzzled and incredulous, like this: if the story’s true, where’s the file? I didn’t have a good answer for that.

John:

Trust me, I have NO REASON to make such a sordid story up. Of course it is the truth.

Jones was a tenured Mormon professor at BYU. When I talked to him two years ago to warn him of the dangers inherent in “speaking out” he assured me he was fine.

Last summer Bush, Cheney, et. al. visited Salt Lake City for the VFW convention.

Bush and Cheney meet privately for over one hour with LDS Church President Hinckley and Counselor Monson as soon as they arrived in

SLC.

The PRESS is told the subject matter of the meeting was completely private (strange they didn’t just make some subject up – i.e. P.R. or just polite protocol conversation).

The following week, Jones is fired from BYU and is now personna non grata among faithful Mormons.

Go figure!

As far as sharing my story – there are no limits except the truth.

Just tell it like it is.

Hey True

You know they’ve separated him from BYU. The office number gives and error message. The lab phone just rings. I’ve sent out emails to the 2 addresses.

By the way, I thought I’d share a couple of thoughts that wandered through my mind.

1) There was never another issue of George. This makes no sense from any point of view. When one issue is on the news stands, the next 3 are well in the works. A tribute issue would have sold millions of copies. Yours is the only plausible explanation for this anomaly.

2) Richard Blow says that on the day he died, he told his staff in a meeting, “As long as I’m alive, you have a job at George magazine.” That’s an extraordinary statement. What could possibly have moved him to make such a commitment? Again, yours is the only plausible explanation. He set the dangers of the task before them and offered to let anyone leave who wanted to. And then was utterly committed to those who stayed.

So, I believe your story. I’d like to share it with other people. I’d like to invite you to tell me what you’d like me to not say.

M.I.A. Reminds Snide Critics She Was Right About NSA Spying in 2010

Reviewers who blasted “The Message” as a paranoid rant are starting to look pretty naive these days
  /  

Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

Following revelations that the NSA is spying on our phone calls, texts, Google history, Facebook profiles and who knows what else, M.I.A. is taking some time to remind the world she knew it all along.

Back in 2010, her Maya album opener “The Message” linked our hyper-connected online lives to government oversight with the following lyrics: “Your headphones connected to your iPhone / Your iPhone’s connected to the Internet / The Internet’s connected to the Google / The Google’s connected to the Government.”

Numerous critics singled out “The Message” in album reviews, heaping condescending, snide remarks onto the track. Dismissing her claim, smug reviewers called her “paranoid,” “juvenile” and “logically shoddy,” implying she was either a conspiracy kook or just plain stupid (they must have forgotten her “Some people think we’re stupid but we’re not” declaration on Kala).

And although nobody likes a gloater, she’s earned the right rub this in some faces now that the rest of the world has caught up. So M.I.A. took to Tumblr and posted excerpts from particularly nasty attacks of Maya. Ironically, the same writers that blasted “The Message” as naive and out of touch in 2010 now seem exactly that themselves in light of 2013’s NSA surveillance scandal.

Although she doesn’t cite the sources for these quotes, we did a little Googlin’ and uncovered the publications. Here are the most egregious examples of critics who blasted her back in 2010 and now have to eat their own words. Because the Internet, and the government monitoring it, never forgets.

“[‘The Message’ is about as] effective as someone in a dorm room ranting about the CIA inventing AIDS. It’s not the best idea to kick off your politically charged album with a song that demolishes the possibility of addressing a serious issue about privacy with any degree of depth or nuance.” – Pitchfork

“‘The Message’… [is] a nursery rhyme about Big Brother’s digital omnipotence.” – Washington Post

“The combination of would-be narcissism and paranoia…. is dismayingly reminiscent of late-period Public Enemy.” – Uncut

“‘The Message’ is a song that seems to be her paranoid, equally awful version of the The Secret. M.I.A. needs conflict to exist, even if this means living in a ‘Google connects to the government’ delusion.” – Washington Square News (NYU student newspaper)

“Album opener ‘The Message’ is a horribly paranoid rant of information politics and media conspiracy lyrics rambled over a distorted and staccato beat. ‘iPod is connected to the Google is connected to the government.’ Yes, and if you watch The Wizard of Oz while listening to Dark Side of the Moon, they synch up. Woooaaaah.” – Urb

In conclusion, we should probably pay attention to what M.I.A. is saying on the long-delayed Matangi when/if it finally drops. Listen to “The Message” below.

The Dark Knight Rises vs. The 99%

Dear Reader,

This whole review’s a spoiler, so if you’re not prepared to handle an all-spoiler review, take a hike. (You know the drill.)

Yours in despair,

Eileen J.

So get this. At the end of The Dark Knight Rises, Batman/Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is supposedly dead and gone, having sacrificed himself to save Gotham City without the public appreciating it—ungrateful bastards! Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) gives the eulogy at the sparsely attended funeral. In tribute to Batman’s heroism, Gordon reads Sydney Carton’s final lines from A Tale of Two Cities.

Yeah! He really does! The whole “It’s a far far better thing I do than I have ever done, it’s a far far better rest I go to than I have ever known” bit!

Now, this takes some nerve. Those are among the hammiest lines ever conceived by the human brain, and they take considerable justification to lead up to ‘em. Charles Dickens spent about 500 pages carefully building to the big lugubrious sockeroo. Sydney Carton’s noble death on the guillotine is an absolute triumph of careful handling by a master of lurid melodrama who was all for incremental social change but got very, very squeamish about revolution, no matter how necessary and justified…

Wait, hang on—why the hell is Batman being compared to Sydney Carton, the guy who saved an aristocrat by taking his place in the tumbril, sacrificing himself to a French peasant mob represented by Dickens as vile, bloodthirsty, and insane?

Well, it seems Christopher Nolan had hisself an idea, he and his writer-brother Jonathan, when writing this Batman-movie-to-end-all-Batman-movies. They thought they’d angle it so that the populace of Gotham City, finally rebelling against the vicious plutocrats in control and demanding a more just society, would turn instantly into a French Revolution-type mob and go all Robespierre on the rich and powerful.

First the Nolans pulled a lot of rhetoric straight from the Occupy movement and put it in the mouth of Bane (Tom Hardy), the masked, muscled-out gargoyle with the silly voice who’s the villain of the piece. Bane’s up on the steps of City Hall or wherever, exhorting the people to rise up and take back control of their city from the Wall Street thieves and billionaire bloodsuckers. But during this oration, Nolan never cuts to reaction shots of the crowd—he’s pulling the old camera trick of making us, the audience, the “mob.”

Take that, you 99%-ers, you mob-waiting-to-happen, you incipient villains!  Let this be a warning to you not to listen to any charismatic rhetoric about your rights as citizens!

Because sure enough, the dreadful working class hordes dressed in sinister motley casual-wear—hoodies and the sorta thing—are manipulated by Bane to take back their city. So the first thing they do is buckle down to releasing all the violent psychopathological criminals in the prison—that’s the first thing protesters always do, it’s Step One in the Social Justice Playbook. Then they go around looting violently and attacking women in fur coats.

Later on, the brainwashed mob follows Bane through the streets to a confrontation with the cops, where the Nolan boys continue to get all topical on our asses. The brave men in blue, the vulnerable uniformed “thin blue line” of police, armed only with pathetic small handguns against tanks and assault rifles, and badly outnumbered, march right into the terrifying mob of savage sans-culottes, I mean protesters, who mow them down.

Ripped from today’s headlines, see, only reversed: now it’s the police who get mauled and the protesters who do the mauling.

Soon it’s hand-to-hand combat, cops versus protesters, in some of the rock-bottom worst staged fight scenes I have ever, ever witnessed. Has Christopher Nolan never even watched any news footage of street fights or riots? They’re generally scary-looking because they’re so ragged and random and chaotic, with surges of crowd motion and sudden bursts of mayhem, arms flailing, legs kicking, people falling and getting stepped on and tripped over, violent pile-ups in one area while other areas open up as people scatter. Nolan’s fight is so badly choreographed, everyone’s fighting in pairs, trading phony-looking, equi-powerful punches like guys in old Westerns, and all the pairs seem to be maintaining an even distance from each other like it’s a barn dance.

Maybe Nolan figured we’d be paying too much attention to Bane fighting Batman in the foreground to notice the rest, but seriously, you can practically hear Nolan yelling though a bullhorn at the extras to do another take, and this time try to punch more like John Wayne.

Still later Bane and the protesters and all the other bad guys have lost. The protester-perps are all kneeling down with their hands clasped behind their heads, guarded by the standing cops, as the cops gaze out manfully at the horizon. Virtue triumphant!

I go into all this at such length because the critics and bloggers who’ve already mentioned these embarrassing facts about The Dark Knight Rises aren’t getting half-enough play. The wild charge by Rush Limbaugh that the film is actually a left-wing smear because the villain Bane is meant to refer to Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s corporation, is getting more traction than the film’s amazingly in-your-face pro-plutocrat, anti-protestor plot development.

Plus there’s so much other attendant madness swirling around the film, first the death-threats against critics who disparaged it, then the midnight-show mass murders in Aurora, Colorado, then the latest round of debates about violent media and its potential effects on violence-prone people—it’s hard not to feel addled by it all.

Critics who love and defend the film note the anti-99% rhetoric, but hurry to contextualize it as all part of Christopher Nolan’s dark vision, his wonderfully profound portrayal of a whole world gone mad, which is so great it justifies a certain “provocative” topicality. Here’s Andrew O’Hehir of Salon going absolutely bonkers over this film:

I would argue that Nolan is mostly being provocative with this tale of underclass resentment, of an uprising by the lower half of the 99 percent that is turned to evil purposes. If so, it works. In its tremendous, almost apocalyptic action sequences, “The Dark Knight Rises” suggests a reverse-engineered version of a Soviet-era revolutionary epic, in which the masses are the villains and their onetime overlords the heroes. Bane’s attack on a football stadium right after kickoff concludes a simultaneously brutal and elegant sequence, set against an angelic boy singing the national anthem, that’s worthy of Martin Scorsese at his best.

HAAAAAAA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAA!!! That idiotic football stadium scene, with its stupid cliché-kid singing a fey, tremolo “Star-Spangled Banner” as part of the buildup to bombing the place? I swear, I thought there might be some intentional black comedy going on there. But no—turned out to be UNintentional. Especially the finale with the football player running for a touchdown not realizing the field is exploding behind him, killing all the other players (is he a DEAF football player?), and turning around triumphantly in the end zone only to see a giant smoking crater. Far Side cartoons have been made out of images like that!

That’s “simultaneously brutal and elegant…worthy of Martin Scorsese at his best”?! Martin Scorsese!! Guy who did Raging Bull!! Scorsese oughta SUE Andrew Goddamn O’Hehir for defamation of character!!

Anyway, my point being…gotta calm down here…my point being, this movie isn’t just ideologically rotten to the core, it’s rotten in the regular way, too. Bad, stupid, lame, embarrassing, and seemingly interminable, full of main characters delivering long-winded speeches explaining their histories from childhood so we’ll be sure to understand their motivations, which are murky and trite in equal measure. Famous and excellent actors do their damnedest to put all this crap across. But don’t let all the cinematic embiggening fool you! Nolan lays on bogus profundity with a trowel!

See, you enamored critics and fans, you’re all giving Nolan way too much credit, you always have.  Just because Heath Ledger gave a terrific performance as the Joker before he went to the Great Oscar Party in the Sky—just because the production designs are large and well-lit, just because Nolan’s cinematographer Walter Pfister can shoot some good angles—you all give Nolan credit for being some kinda deep, edgy nihilist showing us the infinite corruptibility of humanity or something. But Nolan signals who the good guys and the bad guys are just as simplistically and strenuously as any old-time Hollywood hack who used to rely on white hats and black hats to keep things clear.

We all know who’s “good” in The Dark Knight Rises, no matter what their tiresome human frailties are. Batman/Bruce Wayne, Commissioner Gordon, the “angry orphan” who sees himself in Batman (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), John Blake aka soon-to-be-Robin, Batman’s faithful flunkies Alfred (Michael Caine) and Lucien (Morgan Freeman), and all the cops who fight on Batman’s side, upholding law ‘n’ order no matter what.

Selina Kyle/Catwoman is also unambiguously good in this Batman, because she’s played by Anne Hathaway with her giant doe eyes and schoolgirl pertness, and more importantly, because she renounces “class warfare” at the end. Sickening little scene when Catwoman, portrayed here as battling her way up out of poverty and exploitation, comes upon a looted apartment and shudders with horror at the property damage. A framed photo of a nuclear family has been smashed! It’s unbearable, in a city of poverty and suffering, that the glass in this framed photo of blonde people should get broken!

Then she changes sides and helps Batman save the aristocrats from the tumbrils.

And who’s bad? Lessee. Bane, of course, who comes from some literal hellhole in the Mideast seeking vague revenge on Gotham City, and of course, the 99% proles who are manipulated into following Bane. A few of the evil plutocrats are bad, until they’re attacked by the working class, then they’re seen as victims of badly dressed upstarts and become good again.

The ultimate villain, it turns out, is Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard), an environmentalist who’s always talking about her dedication to the cause of sustainable energy. Ain’t it perfect? She spends most of the movie gassing on about the renewable energy sources and saving the planet, then out of nowhere she sticks a knife into Batman.

fracking tree-huggers—shoulda known!

So how much of a Tory bastard is this Chris Nolan, exactly? His devoted followers might not care, but all of a sudden I do. Anyone out there got insider info? I’m thinking of knitting his name into a shawl I’m working on. (It’s a Tale of Two Cities reference. Look it up.)

Christ and the Serpent

Christ Serpent

In Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ I crush the serpent Lucifer on minute 9 second 11. Mel starred in the movie Conspiracy Theory. Do you think 9/11 was a conspiracy? Do you believe there was a conspiracy against Julius Caesar or a conspiracy against me?

Sandy Hook Conspiracy

Adam Lanza: Call of Duty

This Sandy Hook conspiracy video has been viewed 8.5 million times on YouTube. Vigilant Citizen also has an interesting article on Sandy Hook. It seems Adam Lanza was playing the violent video game call of duty just like Norwegian killer Anders Breivik. He also watched Madonna’s violent concert on youtube. The song playing on the radio at the time of the shooting was Ke$ha’s “Die Young”. Adam Lanza was autistic.

Martin Sheen and Woody Harrelson set for 9/11 ‘truther’ film September Morn

September Morn
Film’s advance publicity says: ‘We the people demand an independent investigation into the tragic events of 9/11’

Martin Sheen and Woody Harrelson are to star in a new film which questions the official story behind the 9/11 attacks.

‘September Morn’ supports some of the theories of the ‘truther’ movement, which has questioned the established version of the events of September 11, hinting at a government conspiracy.

The publicity note which the film is using, rather than give the usual idea of plot, reads: “We the people demand that the government revisits and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 9/11. In the vein of ‘Twelve Angry Men’ this dramatic piece is set with a stellar and award winning cast.”

Also signed up are Judd Nelson, Ed Asner and Esai Morales.

Hollywood is to court controversy with a film that will challenge the official version of the events of 9/11, a previously taboo topic for the industry mainstream. Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson and Ed Asner, who have all supported conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks, have signed up to the movie, which is entitled September Morn.

Styling itself as a drama in the tradition of Twelve Angry Men, the film’s advance publicity note hints at a cover-up, saying: “We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 911.”

Details of the film, which is to be directed by BJ Davis and written by Howard Cohen, are expected to be revealed at an American Film Market conference in Los Angeles next week, Deadline.com reported.

The production has been set up by Fleur de Lis Film Studios, which has also made the documentary A Noble Lie, about the Oklahoma City bombing, and Operation: Dark Heart, a feature based on an intelligence agent’s memoirs.

Until now Hollywood has steered clear of claims that the Bush administration, or other elements in the government, may have been behind the 9/11 attacks, in which hijacked passenger planes crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennslyvania. The fourth plane was apparently en route to the Capitol.

Oliver Stone, who has challenged official history in JFK and other films, steered clear of conspiracy theories in his 2006 film World Trade Center, which focused on the heroism of police and rescuers.

September Morn has assembled a cast linked to the so-called truther movement, which alleges official inconsistencies, complicity and cover-up.

Sheen, who starred in Apocalypse Now and television’s The West Wing, has long questioned whether Islamist hijackers single-handedly brought down the Twin Towers, killing 2,605 people.

“I did not want to believe that my government could possibly be involved in such a thing, I could not live in a country that I thought could do that – that would be the ultimate betrayal,” he told an interviewer in 2007.

Sheen grew suspicious after his son Charlie, also an actor, alerted him to apparent contradictions, such as how a structure known as “Building 7” fell.

He said: “However, there have been so many revelations that now I have my doubts, and chief among them is Building 7 – how did they rig that building so that it came down on the evening of the day?”

Asner, who has won seven Emmys, has several times urged a new investigation into 9/11. In 2010, he told an interviewer: “This country – which is the greatest, strongest country that ever existed in the world, in terms of power – supposedly had a defence that could not be penetrated all these years. But all of that was eradicated by 19 Saudi Arabians, supposedly. Some of whom didn’t even know how to fly.”

Harrelson, who starred recently in The Hunger Games, has also supported the self-styled 9/11 truth movement.

September Morn is also the name of a Neil Diamond album and a painting by the French artist Paul Émile Chabas which hangs in New York‘s Metropolitan Musuem of Art.
