Brant_confession - 1

^ manuscript mailed to Brant Secunda on 14 August 2017

This is not a pleasant essay, personally, for me to write. It is a confession on behalf of an acquaintance without the courage to look at what he is doing. This, and it is a confession of naivete (stupidity) on my own part.

Much of my life had been in that unusual (but not unique) circumstance of having one foot in separate worlds; indigenous American and (I am not ashamed to call it) the Whiteman’s world. This is result of some years of my youth spent in mixed White-Indian community. As an adult, my cultural identity became more ‘Indian’ (as we self refer in the Native pidgin, never-mind the politically correct arguments.) At one time, in a close 24 years association with our famed elder, Pat Kennedy, I gave a ten full years of my life, roughly 1981 through 1991, to understanding his ceremony.

Depending on which sort of Indian you were, Pat was a Cree, Plains Ojibwe or Blackfeet elder. In fact he was all of these; and was fluent in at least seven indigenous languages, Cree, Chippewa (Ojibwe), Blackfoot, Crow, Salish, and if memory serves me correctly, Sioux and Cheyenne. His limited Native pidgin English was intelligent and creative. You see, Pat was one of those last surviving indigenous North Americans who’d never been to school, his mind had never been shaped or influenced by Cartesian-Platonic philosophy.

It was 1984 when I had introduced Pat to Brant Secunda. As it is known, and perhaps best stated by Oscar Wilde, in the Whiteman’s world, “Truth is seldom pure and never simple.” The simplified truth is, Pat wished to meet Brant, but then, of course, it becomes complicated.

The short story is, Pat was an intensively curious man with a real thirst to learn. I’d told him about my meeting with an old Huichol man, Don Jose, near Helena, Montana, the previous year, in 1983. It did appear this old man had given Brant Secunda a ‘Dance of the Deer’ similar to our own Blacktail (Blackfeet deer) dance. According to Pat’s desire to see this ceremony, I’d brought Pat to a guest ranch outside of Helena, Montana, in 1984, to meet Brant (the old Huichol had not made the trip to Montana subsequent to 1983.)

From this time, to 2001, when I’d moved to New Mexico, each year Brant had brought his Dance of the Deer ceremony to Montana, I’d be there when Pat met with these people. I might have missed a year or two, particularly in later years, when I’d handed my place by Pat off to Niel E., and Brant might not have made the trip to Montana some years, but for the most part (a majority of Pat’s interactions with Brant) I was present.

I will not speak to Brant’s authority in relation to the ‘Dance of the Deer’ but only in relation to what I have a right to speak to concerning his selling the indigenous ceremony called Sweat Lodge.

Our visits with Brant were eye-opening experience, we (Pat, myself and our ‘Indians’) had much to learn about sincere seeming ‘new age’ people. Initially Pat had me build a new sweat lodge, as he wished to contribute, and after this experience, with women piling in wearing only panties and bra, I found myself giving ‘modesty’ lessons prior to subsequent sweats. I explained we did not typically sweat with men and women together and sexual distractions were not conducive to our concentration and prayers. Everyone had to make adjustments.

We were naive. I say this because, in Indian country, people are expected to correct their own mistakes, we do not (if possible) correct mistakes for someone else. But this was alien thinking to those we were interacting with. However without specifying, Pat did emphasize to these people, on numerous occasions, “You have to correct your mistakes.”

This preceding goes to Pat NEVER charged money or set a fee, to participate in his sweat ceremony, as this would violate immutable Indian law (there is such a thing), there was no ‘cover charge’, no entry fee, no demand for money. This was the example set.

Anyone who would show up was welcome, whether they were a participant in Brant’s workshop or not. This is because, in our tradition, you cannot put a price on spirit and healing in the sweat lodge and Brant certainly knows this. The rule is, if someone is motivated from the heart to make a gift, that’s it, they will give what they are able, without coercion. It is not right to price the poor out, to be in any sense exclusive, this would be anti-social behavior in the indigenous cultural context. This is the rule Pat kept throughout those years. More than this, Brant should have remembered in the sacred context of Pat’s tradition, ‘money’ literally translates as “the leading trouble-maker.”

Brant charging set fee or in any sense demanding money for what is advertised or in any way said to be Pat’s sweat, is a severe violation of Pat’s teaching. This cannot be argued with. Brant had been careful to conceal, in ensuing years, the fact he was selling this sweat lodge. You don’t find reference to this in his literature. But then, it had been brought to my attention…

Brant_confession - 1 (2)

“February 2015 Brant Secunda visited New Zealand, offering sweat lodge (for a fee) and Dance of the Deer (free with paid entrance to a weekend event).

“When I asked under whose authority he has permission to offer sacred lodge, he said he had been assisting (I think it was a Cree(?)) elder with sweat lodge for years and ‘when he saved the elder’s wife’s life with his medicine, the elder gave him permission to conduct sweat lodge'”

…and I have something to say about this.

First off, ‘offering sweat lodge (for a fee)’ and ‘permission to conduct sweat lodge’ are not the same thing. And about this next…

“When I asked under whose authority he has permission to offer sacred lodge, he said he had been assisting (I think it was a Cree(?)) elder with sweat lodge for years

…it just so happens, in the initial years, when I had been sitting on that Cree elder’s left in the sweat, Brant was sitting to yours truly’s left, when it was women and men. That I had, in later times, given my place to Brant, was a gesture Brant appears to have never appreciated. In Indian country, we don’t nod our head, with gesture of hand, and say ‘please, after you.’ Brant entirely misinterpreted his sitting place. Or simply took it without asking. In the men only context, Brant sat to Pat’s right and myself to the left. Now let’s do the math of this ‘assisting with this Cree elder for years’

If we are generous and say Brant sweat with Pat 5 days out of Brant’s typical 5 day workshops held in Montana over a period of 1984-2004 (the year Pat died) and only deduct one year of the years Brant didn’t bring his workshop to Montana, 5 days x 20 years = 100 days, or less than four months, is somehow construed to ‘assisting for years.’ We’ll call Brant’s math ‘shamanic.’

Now, it has been established Brant is selling what he was never given permission to sell because in the ancient indigenous law you cannot put a price on this and I know this had been explained to Brant, and further, Brant had lied about his level of experience, we come to this next…

Brant_confession - 1 (1)

“The rocks that are brought in to heat the lodge are referred to as grandfathers. All objects in nature, according to most indigenous people of the Americas, are believed to have a spirit. It is the wisdom of these grandfathers, and all of our relations past and present, that would fill us with what we need during this experience. The blazing, hot rocks were carefully placed into the pit. The glow was comforting in the darkness of the cramped space but as I counted their arrival, my heart began to beat a bit faster. We had passed a dozen hot rocks and more were on their way. Having sweat in the past, I was accustomed to about eight or so rocks for the first round of heat. The realization quickly hit me that this was going to be an immensely hot lodge.

“The doors closed and the water hit the stones like a comet. Our small space immediately filled with steam and I lowered my head to find cooler air to breathe. As the heat intensified, a woman behind me began to panic. Other women comforted her but she would not relax into the experience. Throughout the entire first round, she cried about how hot she felt, and at the end of the first round, she was excused. At points during that first round, Brant moved us into prayer and it felt good. When the doors were opened after that first round, about ten participants toppled over those remaining to make an expedient exit. I have never shied away from going the full four rounds of a sweat but for the first time, I considered this strategy. I know it’s often said that when you are pure, the lodge doesn’t cause so much pain. Knowing that I was far from pure in my ability to focus, I realized that I needed to remain for all four rounds, no matter how intense the heat became.

“The second and third rounds were hotter than the first by double, and I feared my skin would peel off or that I would pass out. Each time the door opened, more people scuttled through the doorway to freedom from the oppressive heat inside, but I knew I had to overcome the discomfort and endure this as part of my purification. Every so often, Brant would turn around and ask how “Buffalo girl” was doing (my given nickname for the weekend). I responded that I was fine and even though I tried to look calm, he must have known I was struggling within. After all, he is a shaman. Four challenging rounds later, I crawled out, feeling lighter than I had in months. I was free of troubling and mindless thoughts and had a renewed strength and confidence, having endured such a potent test of spirit.

Overlooking the narrator’s egoism (cold compassion), leading to her self-deceit of passing a ‘potent test of spirit’ (never what the sweat ceremony was about, this is a western interpretation), in fact the terrified woman described had been ‘tortured’ (there is no easier description), grossly violating Pat’s teaching and example. Pat never cranked up the heat like this for non-native people. He would personally inquire of every individual in the lodge, if they were ok, with each set of splashes taking the heat up. If someone were indeed suffering, Pat would immediately have the door opened to vent off the heat and bring the experience into bearable range. This was example set for Brant.

What Brant is doing is subjecting these people to heat level he experienced when sweating with us (men only) together in a small, private experience reserved to male veterans of sweat lodge ceremony (pointing out Pat’s sweat is a male ceremony in its indigenous context.) This heat level was never meant to be used in a wider context and certainly not for a non-native or novice in any case. Brant allowing this woman to be frightened, and keeping her trapped, suffering and terrified throughout the 1st round, and then going on to raise the heat level for subsequent rounds is worse than narcissistic cruelty, it is truly sadistic. Moreover, in a de jure sense of risking health and life, subjecting these people to the described heat level is a criminal reckless endangerment.

What is clear to the authentic native practitioner in the preceding is, the dearth of understanding of the indigenous mentality from which co-opted practices derive. The sweat ‘purification’ is about becoming CLEAN and becoming CLEAN has little to do with inflating ego but in indigenous tradition is quite the opposite. The egoistic narrative quoted, concerning the experience with Brant, points to a rank FAIL.

It follows, the responsibility of teachers like Brant should be to explore (deeply) how it is these practices might mean entirely different things to the separate communities, indigenous & western, and challenge the western (particularly) to understand if these practices are to become anything resembling a healthy, valid practice, it will require a radical deconstruction of the western mentality; in effect, doing what westerner’s simply do not do – take responsibility for the damage western culture is inflicting not only on the other cultures, but on life itself. This would require, at minimum, a radical departure from pursuit of wealth in a context of success per the western modality. How many would do it? Certainly Brant hasn’t. You probably couldn’t count the number on one hand, of westerners practicing the co-opted ceremonies, that have (zero would be the likely correct answer.) My epic stupidity in this had been to fail achieving an adequate understanding of the absolutely vast canyon between cultures and the virtual impossibility of bridging the differences. In this respect, I had failed Pat who had put immense trust in myself as regards translating/explaining these differences.

Recalling those times the mistakes made were so egregious, Pat had stood up and corrected his own peoples mistakes in very public way, such as the time Pat had one of his peers in Saskatchewan confess to his people he’d faked spirits in the sweat lodge, and on another occasion, in Edmonton, Alberta, Pat had stood up in front of 900 Indians at a great tribal leadership gathering, in order to correct the opening ceremony’s mistakes (such was his recognized authority), here follows, is what I propose Brant confess in keeping with Pat’s traditions:

Confession of a Sham-Man

I, Brant Secunda, stand corrected and confess I never sincerely or actually understood the indigenous sweat lodge that I had experienced with Pat Kennedy; as I have misrepresented my learning, exploited the generous sharing of his ceremony, plasticized what I’d experienced & consequently perverted the native tradition, defrauded the people I teach, endangered peoples lives in this narcissistic pursuit, and in contravention of explicit instruction, have sold what amounts to a counterfeit copy of my experience with Pat around the world … so help me god.

122 KNOWN aircraft were used in renditions within a database of 11,000 flights (by those aircraft) during the known period of renditions. With 119 ‘detained suspects’ acknowledged in Feinstein’s ‘torture report’, the first problem we see is, there are more planes known to have renditioned people than the ‘torture report’ admits had been renditioned. Ignoring the idea the CIA had required use of a separate plane for each rendition (+3 planes), the initial math comes out to 92 flights per prisoner. Let’s toss 1/2 the flights and we have 46 flights per prisoner. Let’s toss 1/2 the flights again, and we have 23 flights per prisoner. Ok, so now we’ve thrown out 75% of the flights by known renditions aircraft and that works out to 25% of the flights would amount to renditions of 2,750 prisoners. So, let’s cut that by half again; if 12.5% of the known flights were renditions, there would be 1,375 kidnapped and or captured persons flown by the CIA. Cut in half again, to 6.25% of flights by planes known to fly renditions, and we should have 688 involuntary ‘transportees.’ If 3% of the flights by KNOWN renditions aircraft, were transporting ONE prisoner each, depending on number of stops, we’d still have up to 344 people (versus Feinstein’s 119), relating to the CIA renditions.

The disparity of the math is too great to give any sense of  credibility or reliability to the Feinstein report. And there is no present way of determining whether flights ‘disappearing’ people (dumped at sea) had been employed in the (CIA supported) Latin America junta style.

Now, it stands to reason we don’t have close to all of the planes and flights identified because many of them would have been military. As well, we know the American military has not been even close to fully probed over its own ‘black site’ torture centers, this documentary film’s existence (suppressed in American media) is a singular example:

How many people are missing? We’ll never know so long as the people perpetrating the crimes (CIA-U.S. military) are the people providing access to the information, such as the CIA had in the case of the Feinstein probe. The Feinstein ‘torture report’ can be little more than a ‘we’ll acknowledge as little as possible’ white-wash or professional psychological operation employed for purpose of damage control.

There needs to be an authentic accounting. Most or nearly all flights that weren’t to ‘black sites’ were likely military flights to, examples given, Bagram and Guantanamo. The point of using civilian jets together with filing false flight plans is to cover criminal activity such as kidnap renditions. A civilian jet points to a kidnap rendition or less often, someone handed over by a 3rd party, for instance Pakistan, as opposed to a battlefield capture. What are the structures? Aside from inferred CIA black sites in the  Senate report identified from other sources (Poland, Romania et al) it is known prisoners were delivered for torture to 3d party nations Morocco, Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Libya, there was a ‘black site’ under military control at Bagram and there well may have been a ‘black site’ at Guantanamo separate from the regular detention facility, not to mention strong indicators pointing to Diego Garcia. As well, I’ve seen reports Special Forces in Afghanistan, working with CIA, had numerous small (off record) detention facilities in remote areas where prisoners had been shell-gamed to evade rules, and reports of black site jails on U.S. navy ships. Also there are indications renditions had been scrapped in favor of stepped up assassinations under Obama. The subject of renditions is a longs ways from broken open in any sense of reality.

And there is a large question yet looms .. ‘what had been the fate of the women prisoners’ ?

On 17 July 2013, while monitoring the BBC’s RSS feed, BBC Africa posted up a story that was almost immediately taken down by BBC. Curious, I tracked the missing story to its source and discovered why. The story was on an exposé by the Oakland Institute, revealing (among other things) the United States Department of State egregiously lies in reports to many organizations (not only to the UN) on rights abuses associated with land investment in Africa.

Read the Oakland Institute’s full investigative report at this link:

Understanding Land Investment Deals in Africa

“Southern Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley is one of the most culturally and biologically diverse areas in the world, yet the Ethiopian government is transforming more than 375,000 hectares (1450 sq. miles) of the region into industrial-scale plantations for sugar and other monocrops. A vast resettlement scheme for the local ethnic groups is accompanying these plans, as 260,000 local people from 17 ethnic groups who live in the Lower Omo and around Lake Turkana—whose waters will be taken for plantation irrigation—are being evicted from their farmland and restricted from using the natural resources they have been relying on for their livelihoods.

“The plantations are being installed and ethnic and pastoral communities are being forcibly resettled with the help of the Ethiopian military, which has become a central player in the implementation of the Ethiopian government’s development plans. Forced evictions, denial of access to subsistence land, beatings, killings, rapes, imprisonment, intimidation, political coercion, and the denial of government assistance are all being used as tools of forced resettlement. Meanwhile, international donors have been accused of supporting the programs connected with the resettlement sites.

“In response to these criticisms, a group from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) conducted a joint field investigation in the Lower Omo in January 2012. Although this group heard many credible accounts of abuses connected to the resettlement or “villagisation” program, the official stance of the United Kingdom government has since been to repeatedly insist that the “the Department for International Development was not able to substantiate the allegations of human rights violation it received during its visit to South Omo in January 2012.” Similarly, the US State Department’s Ethiopia 2012 Human Rights Report released in April 2013 indicates that donors’ visits “did not find evidence to support this claim [of human right violations] during visits.” DFID and USAID also reported this unsubstantiation of allegations of human rights abuses to the Development Assistance Group (DAG), which is made up of 26 of the major aid agencies that donate to Ethiopia including the UNDP, IMF, and the World Bank.

“This report provides unique insight into the investigation conducted by the donor agencies in January 2012. In stark contrast with the official discourse, testimony from the affected communities shows that egregious human rights violations have taken place. The author accompanied the assessment team as its translator and has audio recordings of the interviews conducted in several Lower Omo communities. Transcripts of these recordings, made public with this report, leave no room for doubt that the donor agencies were given highly credible first-hand accounts of serious human rights violations during their field investigation and they have chosen to steadfastly ignore these accounts.” -Oakland Institute report summary

The Great Oxymoron

Lester Log Roller was from a family of Indians named for a drunken forebear who had been ‘challenged’ by some White loggers in the Pacific Northwest to participate in the “Logger Olympics” of sport unique to their profession. Lester’s forebear actually had brought off his performance quite well, while keeping his balance on a log in a pond which he managed to roll with agility, both forwards and backwards… his fame for the event however, was the wild look of panic on this Indians face with his braids flying askew, because this Indian did not know how to swim.

The Indian’s champion log rolling performance was purely survival driven which made the event all the more hilarious to the redneck Whites that had sent him onto the log at gunpoint. The chief of this White Redneck tribe’s sense of honor, his name was Lucious Ludicrous Bean, declared Log Roller should be allowed to live for his amazing ability to mimic the loggers in the sport (“Damn, who’d believed”), but the Indian would hereafter have to be known by the new name and answer to it.

The Indian agreed to the terms required to save his life while still on the log, and was subsequently fished out of the pond both before he had drowned and nearing sobriety, because he had finally fallen into the water from pure exhaustion. Log Roller’s descendant, Lester Log Roller, subsequently was from a family of Indians that did not drink. They knew better. He went to Law School instead

Nobody in the White Academic world knew how to create a Native Studies Program because in fact to postulate a program as such in the western classroom was oxymoron. Hell, they did not even know that. Native Studies, if it was Natives doing the studies, would be non-interfering in Nature, observing the processes from which all Native intelligence had been drawn. Lester Log Roller did not know that, because he had been off to Boarding School from age five and then off to University in Kanadada.

By this time, Lester had mastered the provincial English linguistic trick of stating the just so “Eh?” after postulating something as mundane as “How aboot (yucky pronunciations) we run to the trading post for some smokes. Eh?” And his Blackfoot language was rusty, such as the time he was home from boarding school to visit and his Aunt told him to go back out (he had just come in the door) and bring in the “Napi-aki.” Lester started to go back out, he was confused, but then resolutely faced his Aunt and told her “I don’t have a White woman!” She laughed and said in English “I’m not talking about White women, I want you to bring in the milk jug.” Lester felt dumb. Napi-aki could mean either milk jug or White woman, but he did not get the context. He had been too long away at school

Lester was a conscientious sort, and so when his undergraduate major in ‘Native Studies’ was decided on, he returned home in summers and brushed up on his Blackfoot Language. But he did not realize that the answer to bring his university into line with the political correctness of the new times had been to establish a White Anthropology program staffed by White-educated mentalities in people with Red skins and call it ‘Native Studies.’ And so, Lester, like the now countless other Red skinned people of Native descent, thought this was real. He should have remembered the Blackfoot proverb “Everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy.” But Lester could not know this now applied to himself. So Lester questioned his former people’s elders to get ideas for his papers he would need to write in the discipline of anthropology disguised with the ‘Native Studies’ euphemism. And thought he was Indian

Lester went on to Law School and eventually became Director of ‘Native Studies’ at a great university which had been duly impressed with his achievements in the Whiteman’s so-called field of ‘Indian Treaty Law,’ having nothing to do with actual Aboriginal Laws of past times, but which combined with the idea he spoke Blackfoot, seemed to make him eminently qualified to run their program.

Here at university he met the great White theoretical physicist David Bohm and they had discussed David’s curiousity as to why it had been noted as early as the 1920’s the Native American languages seemed to have no problem describing many phenomena of the new theoretical physics, which western languages had difficulty coping with. Lester had no idea why either, but it seemed there must be something to it and so they began a dialogue… and eventually Lester became a god. To at least three or four people.

Lester, later on retired and living in a townhouse in the better part of Lethbridge, Kanadada, had continued with his anthropological interest in studying his former people and was particularly interested in their form of government before they had been conquered. His anthropological studies got him up and running on three legs in Blackfoot ways, like the proverbial wild dog that had chewed off one leg to escape a trap… and that was about it

Lester had by this time taken over the dialogue and thought he had some things figured out: Like how the old time chiefs circle of oratory had worked. Not. What he attempted to replicate in fact became a lunatic caricature of what had been his ancestral wisdom. It was not meant to be evil and in fact it was not evil. It was merely stupid. But Lester could not know that

By this time, these dialogues, with David Bohm now dead, had become sponsored by a ‘Wannabee Indian’ organization called ‘New Age in Native America’ run by an anal-retent-hyper-liberal White intellectual who fancied himself an enlightened feminist man. Though one might suspect otherwise, this man was not ‘bi,’ neither bi-sexual, nor bi-cultural

Narcissus Yabadabadoo Montenegro was a “Coyote” in the strict local Hispanic sense of the term, that is a ‘Spanglo.’ You would never know to which community of his ancestry he was loyal to, because this sort of Coyote could only be loyal to himself. His ego was of a soft burnished sort, the kind of lovely passive-aggressiveness whose nasty aspect was presented in the effeminate dark side aroma of the flower he was named for. As a real Indian, you just did not want to get too close to Narcissus if you were to enjoy the genuine natural beauty of his expression. And so it also was with the NANA sponsored dialogues he so expertly organized for the world to know the truth of the New Age in Native America

When Narcissus gazed into the reflective pool of the soft loveliness in his ego, he could detect no offensive aroma. His ethnocidal nuance as applied to Native American thought and philosophy was of a much prettier and more refined sort than that established for his intellectual forebears in the psychological literature developed by Erich Fromm: who postulated the Nazis much enjoyed the smell of their own farts.

A far cry from the camps and ovens, the ethnocidal ‘thrust’ of Narcissus’ ego priapismic tendencies was to bring about the immolation of the Indians beliefs and thinking with grandiose graphics of Taoist imagery superimposed on Native American fruits and vegetables extrapolated to western print: advertising the many ‘Red Skinned [Elmer] Fudds’ (PhDs) he would gather alongside White skinned western scientists in a grand orgy of psyco-somatic ego-stroking masturbation in high intellectual workshops of inter-racial discourse

Napi fell for it in the beginning. It was attractive, because Lester, a Blackfoot Indian who could speak his language was master of ceremony and that fact, taken together with the promoted agenda of Native America’s relationship to an observational philosophy of Quantum Mechanics, convinced Napi at the start he would learn something. Well, Napi did learn some things, he just did not learn what he had expected, like a wider understanding of Native Quantum Reality. Napi learned about Quantum Mechanics in the laboratory from the White scientists and absolutely nothing at all from the many PhD Native Americans because they had no idea at all of how Native Quantum Reality functionally worked.

Damn, it was sad. Not one PhD, not a single PhD from either side of the Racial divide, understood that to be Native American in thought and philosophy had absolutely nothing to do with Race. PhD. Wow. The White western scientists were sometimes frustrated with the Red western scientists who could only tell stories from anthropology that were totally out of context and consequently nonsensical. That fact only made the Red western scientists equal to the White western scientists totally out of context with Nature and nonsensical lab experiments

Napi simply observed the first year he attended. The second year he contributed a little bit of real Indian thinking and freaked out Lester because it looked as though the entire event could be shown up as a case of ‘The Emperor Has No Clothes!’ The third year Napi had tried to explain to Narcissus and had approached Lester directly about making a contribution, how some things could change to open up the dialogues to real learning, but Napi was frozen out instead. No upsetting the gravy train of ego allowed here!

Rather the ‘face’ of the event was to be preserved at all costs, a portrait of the mysterious and knowledgeable Indian, Lester, presiding over an event that might one day yield his great secrets held in abeyance: to his lesser Native beings and the handful of toadying sycophant Whites who peered upon his Native holiness with expressions of Heavenly reverence as though they were alter-boys seated upon the left and right hands of God. In fact, it appeared to Napi that Lester didn’t know shit. Lester only knew how to rest on his laurels from his former Native Studies program directorship at Harvard, look important, and otherwise act cool and all knowing. That’s it.

This lampoon of Leroy Little Bear and the ‘Language of Spirit’ dialogues at SEED Open University, goes to the point of what you see isn’t what it was and what it was, is something you’re not going to get at any ‘native studies’ program, either…

The women’s secret societies had been the driving social engine in the Blackfoot culture, the anthropologists were males and males were NEVER admitted to these societies. The upshot is, when every sister, mother, daughter and wife of every man of consequence delivered identical message, the men would meet and take the nation in the direction these women had insisted upon. The anthropologists only saw the men meet and come to decisions. The ‘circle’ at SEED supposedly replicating the ancient native governance system, is entirely devoid of the matriarchal concept and background. An important note would be, the anthropologists were allowed to keep mistaken assumptions (mistaken assumptions that now are integrated material of so-called ‘native studies’) because the culture they were studying did not have a concept of correcting so-called ‘wrongs’, people are supposed to figure out their mistakes for themselves.

The Blackfoot word for wife, ni-naki, translates literally as “boss.” Ni-naki is the lesser form of the word ni-na-waki, which had been the highest form of Blackfoot chief in pre-contact times, and could only be a woman. The equality there was really quite balanced, with a slightly higher female authority, with great respect between the sexes and women had been fully entitled to be warriors, the term for such was sak-wo-ma-oui-aki-kwan, loosely translated as ‘defiant women.’

The men with more than one wife were seen by anthropologists as polygamists in the western sense, the western observers not realizing the women determined this. Close sisters or best friends shared the man and without this female consensus, polygamy did not happen. And it was the important women who determined who would be a man’s ‘sits besides him wife.’ In the present time, relating to any politically correct western anthropology program with the ‘native studies’ euphemism, it is the western ideas are coming to dominate the native perception of themselves, with the loss of language and oral tradition through enforced western educations, these people don’t even know who they were anymore. But what had been was, the women instilled the culture’s values and stability.

Another misconception is the countless forms of gender in the language, the western linguists puzzling over how so many masculine and feminine forms could be kept straight and why so many when in fact this was the language expressing varying degree of androgyny in descriptions, an alien concept to western linguists.

The unfortunate conclusions concerning the western culture, drawn from thirty plus years work bridging the cultural gap, can be read in my essay ‘You’ve Got Apes!

Bernard-Henry Lévy: Philosopher and Murderous Fool

Lampoon inspired by (& loosely based on) this football (soccer) essay by Lévy. If the shallow employ of a 900 liter bag of words makes a philosopher, I suppose Lévy qualifies.

PARIS–Here is one of the greatest fools of all time, a cad, an aroma of Narcissus for the entire planet, and to be universally acclaimed. Here is a carbuncle who, in front of 7 billion people, fondled his balls as though rolling for snake eyes in a die cup all the while, imagining no one would see, ascertaining the final truth in relation to one of the most extraordinary debacles in imperialism’s history.

Here is a man of pomposity, a buffoon, who imagined himself (like Homer Simpson in his crouch of grunt and beer) to be the only one who could avert his nation’s colonial decline. Better yet, here’s a super-EGO who–unlike Simpson’s–did not wait for a flatulent explosion (in the guise of Nicolas Sarkozy) to come begging him to re-enlist; rather, he decided himself, spontaneously, after having “heard” a rumor calling to him, to return from his North African exile and–putting his ludicrous persona on, while flanked by faithful prostitutes (The planned National Transition Council, Al Qaida, MOSSAD)—reversed the Benghazis’ ill fortune and led successful coup d’état.

And this sordid fright who is a ‘perfect’ hair’s breadth from victory and just minutes from the end of a historic deceit (and of a career that will carry him into the Pantheon of frauds after L Ron Hubbard, Victor Lustig and Charles Ponzi); this Cerberus who, with fifty false personalities, has known the rut, the imperial priapism and finally, the imagined slight with helpless remonstrations; this preening fop, upon whom the blue adorns a pimp’s pride in stain of rape, who had only the very last steps to scale to enter ignominy for good, commits the predictably incomprehensible act that amounts to disqualification from the public ritual–the final image of him that will go down in history and, in lieu of apotheosis, will cast him into hell.

Everyone will know, as I write, what actually happened on the field of Tripoli’s usurpation.

Everyone will know what the faux philosopher, Bernard-Henri Lévy, did and said (in the debacle that NATO bombs had dominated with all its grace) to waken old colonial demons in children from the streets of Algiers, the very demons that NATO’s history of lies, its ethic, its aesthetic, its propaganda are made to quell.

Even if we knew why; even if we knew for certain whether the extinct North African Sephardic insulted him, or rightfully cursed his mother, father, brothers, sister; even if we got hold of the black box of those 2 days that saw this moron demonstrate in a flash his legend that is a mix of narcissist king, a Rasputinish love for a Hungarian midget: the past mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine and, last but not least, the bombastic NATO captains leading troops to consecration with the shedding of brown peoples’ blood; even if we knew the whole story, this man’s suicide would be as all ordinary suicides are; no reason in the world explains the desperate act of a man’s vanity–no provocation, no naturally nasty personality, will ever tell us why the planetary icon that Bernard-Henri Lévy has imagined himself to be, a man with more philosophical faults than any pedophile pope, a freak, the non-chosen one, this great priest-by-self-consensus of the new cult oil barons empire in the making, chose to ejaculate on history right here, rather than wait to settle for sanity on the sideline.

No. The truth is that it is perhaps not so easy to stay unsullied in the skin of a self imagined icon, narcissist demigod, faux hero, paranoid fascist pop-legend.

The only plausible explanation for so bizarrely scuttling everything–which, remember, let a lot of time go by (the 4 long months following NATO’s precisely calculated first bomb dropped) in order to concentrate itself into the outburst of orgy of oilmen and stupidly losing control of his militia–the only explanation is that there was in this fraud a kind of public recoil, an ultimate inner revolt, against the synthetic parabola, the stupid statue, the beastified monument, the era had transformed Libya into over these past months.

—-

The man’s insurrection against the natural saint. A self imagined crown of Napoleon and that he then, quite logically, pulverized with the involuntary moron’s head-butt of unconscious truth, the inescapable war lords and the ‘NEW’ philosophy of rapes and torture, as though saying: I am a living stupidity, a fetish; a self-annointed god of the unrestrained loins of man’s most evil passions, an empty hologram but for image of rapine, this new age fascist guru, this decidedly stunted mentality suffering delusion’s grandeur so blind as Oedipus in his madness, this North African natural heir of Laval and Bousquet, which a peculiar mania had turned him into.

It was as though he were, in parody, self authoring one of the very great titles of this past century, the sinecure acquired via petro-triumph’s laurels of this liturgy of insanity, performance and commodity: Narcissist Homo, This is Rape. Yes, a rape, a true rape, not one of these absurd monsters or synthetic stars created by the money of brand names in combination with the sighs of the Hollywood crowd.

Rasputin had his moment. Like a dog returns to its vomit, Bernard-Henri Lévy will have had his—this one magnificent and rebellious thing, reality, that will have brought his reputation, suddenly, solidly, into the ranks of history’s shameless pimp brothel-hoods.

Paraphrasing a former MI5 agent I had seen interviewed, under Qaddhafi: if one were not particularly political, a citizen could go about a normal life, attain free education, travel and study abroad and enjoy a standard of living approximating a middle class American, the envy of North Africa .. Since the ‘fall of Tripoli’, a $5 taxi ride from the airport has gone up to $500. The capital and the country are divided into fiefs by competing tribal war lords and the militias are refusing to disarm, women’s rights have vanished and torture, murder and rape are rampant throughout the country. In the end, it is likely the rank and file Libyan citizenry will look back and wish they’d never heard of ‘democracy.’

The Satires

Spy

*

In espionage, there are three basic means of penetrating and/or using a hostile organization to one’s advantage:

1)  Turning an employee through some means such as blackmail, sex, bribery or appeal to a psychological weakness such as working on someone’s conscience or ideology and convince them to become your organization’s asset (agent/traitor)

2)  Placing your own officer within the organization as an employee (spy)

3) Using psychology and disinformation to convince the organization’s staff to work to your advantage and/or commit acts against its own interests (false flag/sale)

Typically there would be each of these approaches assessed individually and in various combinations and/or variants when planning an operation. WikiLeaks would be vulnerable to this on several counts.

WikiLeaks ties to the Chaos Computer Club, an organization that has been the focus of multiple intelligence agency penetration for decades, not only national intelligence agencies, but particularly the closely related corporate intelligence agencies (staffed largely by national agency veterans.)

Case in point, when the Green Party in Germany had come into a position of possible governance in 2011, the Chaos Computer Club related Pirate Party had suddenly left the wings of the political stage to field candidates and siphoned away Greens support. The Pirates have shown no interest in subsequent overtures by the Greens and the result has been the entrenched political interests continued in power with the majority corporate favored personalities and policies remaining intact. This is a classic symptom of an organization (Chaos Computer Club/Pirate Party) manipulated by intelligence to act against its own purported interests and public interest.

When Chaos Computer Club member and former close Assange/WikiLeaks associate Daniel Domsheit-Berg left WikiLeaks, he claimed he took the key to WikiLeaks’ online submission platform with him. Since, the platform remained shut down. During this extended period, the risks to anyone submitting information to WikiLeaks are vastly increased for reasons of exposure to conventional forensics (DNA, finger prints, postmarks, surveillance cameras et cetera.) If you have to mail the information to a stationary P.O. Box per Assange’s suggestion [interview with the Independent], every postal service in the world is likely to red flag every piece of mail to that address for their respective intelligence agencies and/or law enforcement, depending on government structure.

ALL of these submissions are at risk of being tracked back to the source of the leak, particularly to anyone who’d leaked without espionage training and it is unlikely many well-intended whistle-blowers providing information to WikiLeaks would have that kind of training. Much of what had been sent must have been intercepted. On the other hand, information actually passed through is as likely as not, to be planted by spy services and here is why:

If a foreign intelligence agency wished to discredit a government such as the USA or elements within the USA and did not wish to be credited with the embarrassing disclosures it had developed, WikiLeaks is a perfect platform to launder any such information through. This pertains to Assange’s incredibly naïve position he does not care where or from who the documents came, so long as the documents are authentic.

This opens the door wide to construct a false or misleading picture by selective provision of information wherein a documents collection can be created as to be deliberately misleading or slanted. And insofar as information provided to WikiLeaks that may have been out and out falsified, intelligence agencies are the best in the world when it comes this phenomena.

A closely related risk is competing factions within a government using WikiLeaks to undermine each other with selective leaking. This easily could be the case with Bradley Manning having been profiled as vulnerable and set up to leak with a selective documents collection as bait. This could explain the Obama administration obsession with prosecuting leaks, to advert this possibility as much as possible, a pre-emptive shut down of the people who might be tempted and consequently manipulated or used as ‘mules’ particularly, in a political sense often more damaging than persons providing information via straightforward leaks. Put the fear of god into them and let Manning be the example. Additionally, any people who’d actually dupe a Manning-like personality into laundering leaks for them, could care less about that person’s fate and would holler as loudly as any, for a Manning personality’s prosecution. He/she would catch hell coming and going, from both sides.

In case of creating custom tailored documents collection, whether [my hypothetical proposed examples follow but in reality this is technique studied at the intelligence agencies everyday] by a foreign entity’s spy service or in a domestic competition, any case is closely studied in a sense of trade-offs. To be convincing, there must be an appearance of credibility and that requires sometimes shooting your own toe off, so to speak, to put a bullet in the brain of your adversary. In other words, you must sometimes include information pointing fault at the vested party to throw the bloodhounds off.

If you were to have a circumstance of a neo-con aligned CIA Special Activities Division or ‘national clandestine service’ [the USA most certainly does] that were the enemy of the Obama people, a figure such as Panetta as Director of Central Intelligence would have been a mere fig leaf in many respects, there is no Democratic White House will control the CIA Special Activities Division, it’s simply not reality. This Division has historically been a George H.W. Bush (employing Cuban exiles) fan club. Throw some recent past Republican dirt that will essentially change nothing, into embarrassing disclosures that mainly damages the incumbent administration and hand it off to WikiLeaks [laundered through a dupe that leaks for you] and viola! The neo-cons have better chance at the next term’s elections because the honest voter will be turned off to the Democrats dirt (both sides are in fact filthy, it is often-times extent of exposure will determine outcome in the ‘game’ of politics.) Another possible scenario would be MOSSAD acting to strengthen American neo-cons with pro-Israel platform.

And because the general public (and one presumes WikiLeaks) do not typically possess a professional counter-espionage program, and indeed the spy versus spy game is pretty well portrayed in a simplistic way by MAD Magazine, what you see will seldom reflect the covert reality.

In regards to the cables leaks, there is circumstantial evidence pointing to a domestic/internal political competition. The most glaring point here is, the CIA coming off unscathed despite the CIA and State Department are in effect [and in fact] Siamese twins. It defies human nature to expect people believing they were using a secure system would not have compromised at least some ongoing operation, at some noticeable level. It didn’t happen.

Reinforcing the preceding thought is the Iraq Field Reports. The error of omission in this case was glaring to this [yours truly] former military special operations intelligence professional. Field Reports would be prepared by a military unit’s operations non-commissioned officer in initial raw data format, prior to any judicial review process, typically for a military unit’s executive officer signature, prior to reports passed up the chain of command. In the present American military era, sources have developed statistic of staggering incidence of raped [by their colleagues] American women soldiers. For instance in 2010 alone, in the Department of Defense [conservative] estimate, there were 19,000 sexual assaults in the U.S. military. The rapes were not magically vanished from time the Iraq invasion commenced to the release of the Iraq Field Reports except that someone did not want them there. The rapes should have been noted by the reports in many cases whether or not charges were pursued. This sort of epidemic certainly should have leaped out if in fact the reports had been uncensored.

Highly exploitable by the best psychology intelligence agencies money can buy, Julian Assange’s narcissism is HUGE, for instance his claim he had a ‘thermonuclear insurance file’ with the most damaging revelations reserved for his personal safety, indicating a belief he is more valuable than the public he claims to serve. With his persecuted-savior complex, his inability to lead and his inability to keep a rigorous self-discipline, particularly relating to his womanizing, both the narcissism and the womanizing would be examined as plainly exploitable by spy services, whether to inflict damage on WikiLeaks, or to usurp or co-opt agenda. The bottom line here is, were Assange given the benefit of the doubt as on the up and up, Assange’s lack of self-discipline none the less wrecked his position if only because he is far too narcissistic to comprehend the risk of the circumstance he’d created surrounding not only himself but everyone associated with WikiLeaks.

Another aspect is, it could serve a WikiLeaks invested intelligence agency to create an image of a persecuted Assange.

The Assange ‘back door’ extradition to to the USA via Sweden allegation smells bad, Britain has had a practically ‘no questions asked’ extradition treaty with the USA, employed to process and extradite to American courts. How would the ‘back door’ via Sweden allegation be explained in a context of the USA has not requested Assange’s extradition from the British? Assange also passed up his appeal option to the European Court and his own Swedish lawyer had stated Assange’s application for asylum “makes him look like a suspect.”

If the Swedish rape allegations were per chance politically motivated, the fact remains it is solely because of Assange’s lack of self-discipline and specifically his inability to keep his dick in his pants despite himself and his organization being high profile targets, WikiLeaks is now in the public purview as sheltering a rapist, whether real or imagined.

Given how Assange’s personality profiles, the chance these allegations are political persecution are only equal to the chance the allegations are valid. Whether in fact the rape occurred or not, present reality is the WikiLeaks mission statement would be better served with Assange out of the picture.

WikiLeaks has a LONG WAYS TO GO to insure even the most basic standard for protection from penetration, co-option and manipulation by the several competing interests involving spy agencies. That is, if WikiLeaks had not been a professional spy agency information operation from inception, which cannot be ruled out.

Notes: my articles at this site that are not specific to WikiLeaks, are nearly entirely devoid of primary material developed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. I say nearly, because some secondary linked articles may have incidental references. The materials developed by Assange & company do not come even close to developing an accurate picture of the organized crime in corporate fusion with government such as are proposed in my assessment (series) America’s Deep State. Additionally, some of the WikiLeaks ‘scoops’ most widely publicized are in fact old and warmed over news; examples are the Haiti Sweat Shop exploitation story had been broken years previous but without receiving wide press and the American embassy pressure on Spanish courts over Judge Garzon had been published in El Pais a full year before it was sensationalized by the so-called ‘cables’ release. The materials in WikiLeaks ‘revelations’ at best provide a fractured, unfocused and chaotic distraction away from any clear view of the organized nature behind the criminal elements driving policy, and at worst, are meant to do exactly that-

Moreover, having spent years exploring the ‘underbelly’ of geopolitics, I can personally assure you that when Julian Assange insists he’s a target for assassination (or when Daniel Ellsberg insists the same), it’s a lot of patent bullshit. If the several intelligence agencies had wanted Assange out of the picture, without specialized training there is no indication Assange has, and exceptional luck on top of that, he’d have been dead long before he took refuge in the Ecuadoran embassy. The very fact Assange is alive indicates he is more valuable to the intelligence agencies alive than dead. It really is that simple.

Observation: So long as political lies are a protected form of speech as opposed to felonies, democracy is only as factual as any liar(s) controlling the apparatus of state-

When politicians serve up a platter of lies to the world, as Obama, Cameron and Hollande have presented what is happening in Syria, who then are we to think democracy is superior to a dictator? The soon to more than 100,000 dead Syrians and already over one million refugees, are by far more the work of western democracies paramilitary intelligence operations than Assad’s so-called Arab Spring ‘crackdown’ which would have been long over were it not for ‘democracies’ support for the ‘resistance.’ In fact, ‘democracy’ has already murdered more Syrians, by far, than Assad, left alone, ever would have. But first, a thumbnail sketch of what can only be described as an Arab Spring sandstorm, a literally blinding event.

Our fable begins with WikiLeaks and released diplomatic cables as the demiurge creating a universal movement for democracy in the Arab world. Meanwhile, Julian Assange has been the house guest of Miss Egypt, that nations number one corporate prostitute whose commercial sponsor (Pantene) ties directly to Procter and Gamble, a major supporter of FOX NEWS. Amy Goodman sucks up Assange’s story of Miss Egypt’s concerns for social justice and how he managed live with her literally wedged into American security, and what he was up to unbeknownst to them:

Amy Goodman: “You lived in Egypt for a time”

Julian Assange: “I lived in Egypt during 2007, so I’m familiar with the Mubarak regime and the tensions within the Egyptian environment. Actually, I was staying at the time, rather unusual circumstance, I was staying in Ms. Egypt’s house. And, Ms. Egypt’s house – other than having paintings of Ms. Egypt all throughout – was clustered right between the U.S. Embassy and the U.N. High Commission with a van outside fueled with 24 soldiers in front of my front door. So, for the type of work we were doing, this seemed to be the ultimate cover to be nested right amongst this”

NOT. You don’t live with neo-conservative Procter and Gamble’s premier Arab World corporate prostitute located between buildings crawling with American, United Nations, and Egyptian security & intelligence, other than with an official nod of approval. I think we’ll find out now who was ‘providing cover.’

How did Egypt’s ‘Spring’ pan out? Known CIA front ‘Freedom House’ (ever since rogue CIA officer Phillip Agee, among others, had fingered the agitators behind so-called ‘color revolutions’) and associated organizations such as the National Democratic Institute, had been training the leadership of the initial secular student and youth movement, with apple technology for revolutionary coordinating purposes. Meanwhile, the Mubarak regime had been provided all the necessary electronic snooping technology to analyze, identify and isolate the secular movement’s leadership, they were rounded up and sent off to USA torture darling Omar Sulieman’s jails. The Muslim Brotherhood stepped in and hijacked the revolution they had initially refused to support, together with taking over the new constitutional process, perfectly happy the secular movement had been marginalized for them. The Brotherhood now wrote the secular movement out of the ‘democratic’ process. The result being, the USA does business in Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood as the ‘legitimate’ government. Meanwhile, the predecessor Mubarak regime’s CIA ‘renditions to torture’ darling Omar Sulieman falls ‘ill’ and is whisked away to the United States for treatment where he dies, silencing a seriously problematic witness. With friends like the CIA…

Now, let’s move over to Libya. Gaddafi is a problem for France and Britain because after his ‘rehabilitation’, he’s not buying high end weapons packages to enrich those nations armaments industries and after all, Gaddafi has maintained his relationships with Syria and Iran. Other than torturing CIA and British MI6 renditioned prisoners, the new business arrangement with Libya is not working out.

Gaddafi is not handing over his oil industry for thorough exploitation, he’s kept Libya out of debt to the IMF, so no leverage there. Libyans live in a society approaching the American middle class standard of living. If you’re not particularly political, you have no problems, there is freedom to travel abroad, free university , women’s emancipation that is radical by Arab world standards and Libya is stable. But it is ‘spring time’ in the Arab world and Gaddafi is not performing political fellatio on the western democracies. Suddenly there is armed resistance in the vicinity of the border with Egypt, France’s neo-con ‘moral conscience’, Bernard-Henri Lévy, gives Nicolas Sarkozy a political blow-job, claiming a failure to intervene in Libya for ‘humanitarian’ reasons “would be a stain on the flag of France.” Sarkozy calls Hillary Clinton and not long after, the cruise missiles are raining down.

The result? Libya is a collection of competing tribal militias, standard of living, free travel and women’s emancipation vanished, Christine Lagarde, at the International Monetary Fund, spontaneously orgasms her pants at the IMF’s prospective new bond servant, Libya’s arsenal is scattered with western intelligence agencies delivering the one half of Gaddafi’s surplus weapons to ‘rebels’ in Syria, the other half of the weapons have found their way into the hands of jihadis across North Africa and a direct result is the war in Mali and more to come across the region and with no end in sight. Oh, but the Pentagon apologizes for failing to instill any standard of human decency in the Malian army it had trained, as that army goes on a war crimes rampage. “We’re sorry.”

Meanwhile, in Bahrain, the majority Shia population is brutally repressed and the USA wrings its hands and sheds a crocodile tear for public consumption as doctors and nurses who’d dared to treat wounded protestors are jailed for decades and the USA’s 5th Fleet remains securely ensconced there. This is because there will be ZERO actual pressure brought to bear on the corrupt sheik’s ruling minority, when neighboring Wahabi Saudi Arabia is the western democracies enforcer, with weapons and intelligence supplied by, you might have guessed it, none other than the very same western democracies, propping up Bahrain.

Now we can arrive back at Syria where the three stooges, the USA, France and Britain, all have had ongoing paramilitary intelligence operations employed to foment revolution to overthrow Assad since the beginning of the so-called ‘Arab Spring.’ The result? The soon to be 100,000 dead Syrians, with one million refugees already, projected to swell to three million refugees within a year, sectarian civil war, atrocities on all sides and extreme jihadis are the most competent, disciplined and well armed of the so-called ‘rebel’ (actually mercenary) militias. These extreme Wahabi  ‘Salafi’ sect are drawn out of Al Qaida ranks in neighboring Iraq, and had been armed by the western democracies allies Qatar & Saudi Arabia. All initially organized via intelligence operations sourced in the USA, France and Britain.

Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Save the Children, all cheer this ‘humanitarian violence’ on with finger pointing at the Syrians and the Assad regime particularly, but nothing is said about the underlying cause and here is why; former Amnesty International (USA) board director Francis Boyle had stated:

My conclusion was that a high-level official of Amnesty International at that time, whom I will not name, was a British intelligence agent. Moreover, my fellow board member, who also investigated this independently of me, reached the exact same conclusion. So certainly when I am dealing with people who want to work with Amnesty in London, I just tell them, “Look, just understand, they’re penetrated by intelligence agents, U.K., maybe U.S., I don’t know, but you certainly can’t trust them

In fact these human rights agencies are shilling propaganda at the populace of the western democracies on behalf of the very people who’d initiated, and are largely responsible for, the travesty of Syria. How sorely these intelligence co-opted ‘humanitarian’ agencies need us to perceive Assad as the sole or at least primary responsible monster, because:

The western democracies having had already arranged for the ‘rebels’ to be armed and the result is Islamists empowered and now they have to find a way out of the  fine and deadly chaos the USA, France and Britain had created when it turns out Syria has not only been destroyed by their incompetent endeavors, but their by far more dangerous (than Assad ever was) enemy presently has the upper hand to gain control in the final outcome. But if you buy this line of patent BS that ‘secular rebels’ need strengthening, you not only assure the downfall of Assad, you also plunge Syria into a post Assad regime civil war with no end in sight. The Saudi (Wahabi) support for the Western democracies meddling in Syria has its own agenda, the Saudi alliance with the Western democracies is one of in bed together for self serving interests, and has nothing to do with common values. The western democracies militarily prop up a corrupt Saudi regime with medieval social values and the democracies are assured their addiction to oil is not threatened. Employing Qatar and the Saudis to launder weapons to Syrian ‘rebels’ was the leadership of the western democracies begging for an anal rape by a misogynist, gynophobic regime with a mentality firmly rooted in the dark ages.

Other than Wahabi jihadis, the winners in this wanton murder of the people of Syria are those corporate boards that sponsor the likes of Julian Assange’s liaison ‘Miss Egypt’ and FOX NEWS. ‘Christian Dominion’ corporate board personalities you commonly see at The Federalist Society, with names like Dick Cheney, Shannen Coffin, John Roberts and Condoleezza Rice. People like Blackwater’s ‘ethics advisor’ John Ashcroft, anywhere and everywhere profit from chaos enriching criminals believing in fascism, these people feel justified and blessed.

Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Save the Children see the money pour in as highly placed officials in those organizations draw a second salary from intelligence agencies, and so they are blessed as well.

And not only neo-cons but neo-liberal serial-killers of nations Hillary Clinton and ‘middle east envoy’ Tony Blair who concealed his conversion to Catholic fundamentalism from the British people until he was out of office. He must be having wet dreams over Syria and wishing he could climb into bed with Cameron.

The armaments industry is blessed. The private security modern mercenary industry, employing ‘Christian Dominion’ commandos who are veterans of the western democracies special operations forces are blessed. Since Iraq, prospective business has never looked this good.

The nearly twenty thousand extreme ‘Christian Dominion’ fundamentalist members of the “Officers’ Christian Fellowship” whose senior members control the Pentagon, as documented by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, are feeling exceedingly blessed. Their apocalyptic vision of Armageddon precipitating the literal return of Jesus seems within reach. The likes of American Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who never encountered a proposed intervention she did not approve and will go on to become ultra rich in the private/corporate security apparatus, are blessed. People who either believe in or would profit from literal Armageddon, feel blessed.

In the end, ‘Le grand canard’ is an interesting expression, possible translations from the original French could include; ‘a big duck’, ‘the great hoax’ or ‘a grand fable.’

The Arab Spring overall, meets the definition ‘great hoax’ and the present public posturing (political lies) of Barack Obama, David Cameron and Francois Hollande, claiming a sudden and urgent need to arm the ‘rebels’, as though they had not arranged this already, precisely meets the definition of a ‘grand fable.’ Or perhaps merely a collective insanity in a nuclear armed world led by mediocre mentalities whose claims to leadership are founded on little more than an incompetent and self-serving narcissism.

And the biggest ‘duck’ in all of this is WikiLeaks, the factual outcomes point to WikiLeaks as a criminal enterprise unleashing chaos. Who has actually profited from the actions of WikiLeaks? Neo-con corporate boards populated by personalities who proliferate weapons sales worldwide. Police state apparatus with renewed/accelerated geo-political instability justifying greater ‘security’ expenditures via rationale of social disorder and attending ‘terror’ fear-mongering. All of the preceding overlapping at “The Family” of “C Street” infamy, whose ‘Christian Dominion’ personalities are as insane as Hitler’s inner circle ever were, now more firmly entrenched than ever, and forever indebted to Julian Assange.

I would suppose the typical western mentality would normally, happily, imagine ‘Spring’ to be a time of blossoming landscapes. But they have failed to recognize any ‘Arab Spring’ is a season and geography of sandstorms.
