The Blog That Reaches the Parts… 140

No other blog can do this 🙂

There is a one minute cut in the middle. This may have been an accident, but it excludes the bit where I say that the Labour Party in Dundee was telling people not to vote Independence or the SNP would let all the black people in. If this was cut deliberately as it repeats a racist comment, I think that is a mistake. To fight racism you need to face it squarely, and the extreme shame of Labour should be exposed as widely in possible.

    “What or who are the Chekka CanSpeccy? Forgive my ignorance.”

    Come on Doug, you know he means the CHEKA. Actually “cheka” is a Russian word for linchpin (or lynchpin in capital punishment terms). In Soviet terms the acronym, often abbreviated to ЧК – чрезвыча́йная коми́ссия was the Extraordinary Commission against Counter-revolution and Sabotage. It adopted policies of extraordinary rendition of suspects to various camps for interrogation, torture and often death. Now where have I recently heard of a parallel?

    Reaching the parts:

    A Supersecret Spacecraft Comes Back to Earth After Two Years:

    Supersecret means you die if disclosed – i.e. Above Top Secret.

    DARPA in a ‘Mix of connected collaborators’ philosophy outsourced to Boeing ‘Phantom Works’ at St Louis the project that realised the obsessive imperative of the Pentagon’s ‘National Defence Strategy paper’, previously signed off by Rumsfeld to enable the use of space “to project power anywhere in the world from secure bases of operation,” and “to ensure our access to and use of space and to deny hostile exploitation of space to adversaries.”

    The system has been designed to accept and acquire tracking data and with 2yrs of data acquisition testing, to launch a weapons platform and put small satellites into orbit to confuse or destroy any (GLONASS) satellite navigation systems.

    The weapons system is designed to deliver ‘decisive blows’ BEFORE the onset of hostilities.

    This out of date paper may be useful to understand the reasoning and metaphysics behind this sub-human anathema.

    “The weapons system is designed to deliver ‘decisive blows’ BEFORE the onset of hostilities.”

    In other words a war of aggression. They might as well. They are already killing people extrajudicially with drones. What has happened to world values, if they ever existed?

    Outside the old US embassy in London there is a statue of Ronald Reagan, the actor bum who made president, and who presided over the Star Wars programme. It is that legacy we are experiencing today.

    When will the ordeal of Oscar Pistorius finally end ? and I don’t mean for his benefit, but for the rest of the world who have to suffer this extended cliff hanger soap opera almost daily. He most clearly lost the plot and shot at the closed toilet door in full knowledge that his cowering girfriend had taken refuge in there. Guilty as charged !

    This sentencing hearing dutifully televisied live by BBC, Sky and various newspaper’s web-feeds, is a total farce and spits in the faces of equality and justice. For crying out loud just let the bloody murderer go free, he’s a big name in SA and ain’t gonna do time in any hell-hole African jail. Big name national heros just don’t breath the same oxygen as everyone else and have a five star treatment to boot. I doubt the same courtesy will be offered to Shrien Dewani and his trial is not being televised.

    Everybody knows that many journalists are the tools of the secret services. If not their lives are in danger. This man, Dr Udo Ulfkotte, has already had three heart attacks and has no children. He has come clean, like Edward Snowden and other whistleblowers, Craig among them, with the news many of the observant would have been foolish not to have known anyway. As I keep telling this blog the secret services and secret societies are run the world, paid for by the bankers, but that’s a different story.

    “I have not actually met a yes voting monarchist. They may exist, but I have not met one. In George Square my “no monarchy” got the biggest cheer of the day. It enthuses people.”

    I agree that some people will be enthused by an anti-monarchist stance Craig; perhaps even many people but don’t underestimate the strength of support for Royalty in Scotland.

    It is an illogical phenomena (to me anyway) that apparently well-educated and sensible people support a “fairy tale” family of Kings and Queens, Princes and Princes as a child might.

    I’m sure many Yes voters want independence but would want to retain the monarchy. This is of course irrational but that’s part of being human.

    Abolishing the monarchy can wait until after independence.

    “On Saturday 6 November 1999, 12.3 million electors of the Commonwealth of Australia participated in a constitutional referendum.”

    One question was:

    “To alter the Constitution to establish the Commonwealth of Australia as a republic with the Queen and the Governor-General being replaced by a President appointed by a two-thirds majority of the members of the Commonwealth Parliament” .

    It was defeated with only 39% in favour.

    I think it would be very foolish not to take the irrational seriously.

    Thanks John, I honestly didn’t know that.

  • John Goss

    “I think it would be very foolish not to take the irrational seriously.” Yep. I know this was not addressed to me. Even though I have never really been a monarchist I have spoken to a lot of otherwise intelligent people who are. Ben’s lot, the Yanks, love our royal family because they haven’t got one of their own. But Ben’s namesake Franklin fought with others to make sure north American states had no monarch. Secretly, judging by the hype and popularity of “The Madness of King George”, I think they would have liked a history of monarchs and serfdom themselves. But good principles can be abused. It is my firm belief that those depicted as outlaws (shot by the sheriffs and marshals) were the good guys. And because they have this stupid gun-law mentality all that is left are gunslingers and cowboys.

    “Oscar Pistorius… Guilty as charged !”

    “This sentencing hearing…is a total farce and spits in the faces of equality and justice.”

    Yes I agree Parky. It reminds me of the O.J. Simpson farce.

    Can you imagine poor Oscar being given community service?

    The media will be there watching him clean graffiti from walls for two hours a day; how embarrassing for him.

    On Monday, the Zionist regime receive shocking news that its Zionist dogs in the British House of Common failed to stop a YES majority vote in favor of recognizing an independent state of Palestine bordering Israel.

    Netanyahu and Israeli embassy in London had warned prime minister David Cameron and the HM opposition leader Ed Miliband against giving recognition to Palestinian state. In spite British Jewish groups lobbying British MPs voted in favor of the motion with a majority of 274 to 12 with many Tories abstaining after a six-hour debate.

    A spokesperson for the UK’s prime minister David Cameron clarified ahead of the vote that when it comes to Israel, the parliament decision would not affect London’s relations with Tel Aviv. Cameron told reporters that he intends to abstain the vote.

    The Israeli Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that the vote in favor of recognizing Palestine as a state risks undermining efforts for what it called “real peace with Palestinians.”

    Meanwhile, Britain’s Ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, an Israeli smoking gun against Iran, said public sentiment in the UK and around the world has shifted against Israel following its recent 50-day onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

    The British envoy said the parliamentary vote in favor of Palestinian statehood was “significant” because it reveals negative attitudes toward the Zionist regime.

    The UK majority vote is shocking to anyone aware of British political landscape. It’s no different than the Organized Jewry’s corrupted political process in the US, Canada, Australia, France and Germany. UK’s all four political parties, the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats and the UKIP are controlled by the country’s powerful “Jewish Lobby”. During the Palestinian statehood debate, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen confirmed the power of the “Jewish Lobby”, saying: “The political system of the world’s superpower and our great ally the United States is very susceptible to well-funded powerful lobbying groups and the power of the Jewish lobby in America.”

    Earlier hundreds of Israeli notables including Nobel Prize laureate Prof. Daniel Kahneman, former Meretz ministers Ran Cohen and Yossi Sarid, four former MKs, six winners of the Israeli Prize and the former attorney-general Michael Ben Yair in a letter urged British MPs to vote in favor of Palestinian statehood.

    However, now more and more Europeans are reaching the conclusion that their governments are using their military muscles not to defend national borders but the Zionist entity created by the western powers in the Arab heartland.

    I believe it’s a great victory for Hamas. Britain now becomes the second European Union member to make the rightful decision after the recent decision by Sweden.

    @Canspeccy “You’re good at playing with words, Ben, but you, like everyone else here, has failed miserably to answer my initial questions:

    (1) What’s racist about saying “the SNP will let the blacks in”?

    Hmm. What could be racist about that?

    Let’s start with the fact that it’s argued as being a negative prospect – it wasn’t an SNP supporter putting this view, right? This was not an argument meant to win around support for the SNP. Therefore, it’s pretty much a given, that to “let the blacks in” is a rather negative position to take.

    Since we have made the assumption that to “let the blacks in” is a negative position, we might well ask why. Is it because we fear overpopulation? Perhaps, but since it’s only “the blacks” we have expressed any concern about in that regard, it is safe to assume that only “the blacks” are a cause for concern on that front.

    What remains to be negatively asserted about the SNP position? That people – my mistake, sorry – “the blacks” – are going to be allowed into the country. Never mind how many, why overpopulation might be a problem, forget about the fact that they may be foreigners, or what political persuasion they might have, or what their background might be. That is the argument at work here.

    They are, after all, “the blacks”. That is the only issue here. And that – Canspeccy – is what’s racist about that.

    French FM: If peace talks prove impossible, we’ll recognize Palestinian state

    Paris should recognize a Palestinian state only if doing so would help achieve peace, Fabius says.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (L) shakes hands with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (L) shakes hands with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius as he arrives at the Quai d’Orsay in Paris, October 13, 2014.

    REUTERS – France’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that Paris should recognize a Palestinian state only if doing so would help achieve peace, not as a symbolic gesture.

    However, if negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel fail, Paris “would not shirk its responsibilities” but would recognize the Palestinian state, the minister, Laurent Fabius, said in answer to a question in parliament.

    His remarks came a day after British lawmakers voted to recognize Palestine. Their vote will not alter government policy, but it does carry symbolic value as Palestinians pursue international recognition.

    “From the moment when we say that there are two states, there will be recognition of a Palestinian state. That goes without saying, it’s logical,” Fabius said. ‘

    Blair calls for global lessons in religious respect
    By Sean Coughlan
    BBC News education correspondent

    Tony Blair says the battle of ideas needs to “uproot the thinking of extremists”

    Tony Blair: Fight war of ideas against extremism
    Education faces 10,000 violent attacks
    Education is a ‘security issue’, says UN

    Tony Blair wants a global drive to tackle the roots of extremism by making education systems in all countries teach respect for other religions.

    He says it is “foolish” to spend billions on a military fight against Islamic extremism, while leaving religious intolerance “undisturbed”.

    As a matter of “urgent global importance”, he wants schools to teach “the virtue of religious respect”.

    This should be made a “common global obligation”, says Mr Blair.

    The former UK prime minister, in an article written for the BBC News Knowledge Economy series, says that the struggle against the so-called Islamic State and the threat of terrorism needed to engage in the battle of ideas.

    “All the security measures and all the fighting will count for nothing,” he says, unless the intolerant ideas that feed into extremist violence are challenged.

    It seems like everyone can redefine words to suit their own ideological and political agendas. The term ‘genocide’ as it was originally conceived and defined has been correctly observed by CanSpeccy and this link below.

    Genocide –

    I am of the view that words should only evolve to make them more concise, not more vague; aid clarity and not confusion. It is unfortunate, however, that conformity with the definition of a word begins to direct behaviour as if conformance with definition had a holy authority and mystical power. Of course this power is merely one of false attribution by irrelevant association and false equivalence. If you drive a Land Rover, then you are monarchist scum because the royals drive Rovers and their supporters are scum.

    Liberal extremists and feminists know about this effect, which is why the former labels so many dissenters as “racists” and the latter labels so many as “rapists”. Therefore the desire to ensure a stable and harmonious community is “racist” and admiring a beautiful woman is “rape”. This is the art of deceptive equivalence best demonstrated by some Pythons below.

    Snowden mentions in his biopic film “CitizenFour” There is a detailed policy framework, a kind of marshall law for cyber operations, created by the White House. It’s called presidential policy 20

    helpfully this Obama presidential document, upon which foreigners are not able to gaze without being turned into salt, is backed-up on the ‘Federation of American Scientists’ server

    it mentions some of the personas extant here on Craig’s blog

    This directive pertains to cyber operations, including those that support or enable kinetic, information, or other types of operations. Most of this directive is directed exclusively to DCEO and OCEO.

    The United States Government has mature capabilities and effective processes for cyber collection.

    Therefore, this directive affirms and does not intend to alter existing procedures, guidelines, or authorities for cyber collection.

    This directive provides a procedure for cyber collection operations that are reasonably likely to result in “significant consequences.” [operations with significant consequences were previously referred to as “sensitive offensive cyber operations.”]


    The use of online personas and other virtual operations [Human intelligence operations undertaken via the Internet] – undertaken exclusively for counterintelligence, intelligence collection, or law enforcement purposes – that do not involve the use of DCEO or OCEO;

    (DCEO & OCEO are acronyms for Defensive Cyber Effects Operations and Offensive Cyber Effects Operations)

    Which pose the questions, “are the online humint personas who attack this blog with manipulation, disruption, denial, degradation, or destruction ‘sensitive offensive’ techniques working on Offensive cyberoperations or on Defensive cyberoperations or on what other form of cyberwar?” “Are they really directed to attack here for ‘law enforcement purposes’ (to later arrest Craig for wrong-think?) or maybe absurdly, counterintelligence on behalf of the partner Uzbek intelligence community?”

    it seems hard to reconcile their activities with any understanding of international law but then Snowden claims further the UK is almost completely law-free in this area.

    Presumably GCHQ isn’t on strike today?

    “then Scotland will have an open border with the EU, and no means of closing it. ”

    Thats all you want is it not, shut off Scotland to all an sundry, why don’t you have a little experiment by sticking your head into a hole and then try to see who finds your backside attractive?

    Scotland is in now and would never be out of the EU just because its Independent!

    Tuesday’s slide of 4.5% by U.S. crude oil to $81.84 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange left the price down 20% since the start of June. That was the lowest closing price since June 2012, and some analysts predict the price will fall as much as $10 a barrel lower.

    Looks like American fracking is pushing oil prices down and it could well be long term.

    Bad news for any countries with economies which rely heavily on oil exports.

    “Looks like American fracking is pushing oil prices down”

    Nah, it’s part of an economic war against Russia.
