Exclusive: The Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse. Seriously.

Everything you need to know about the U.S. military’s defense strategy to protect humanity from the walking dead.

The U.S. military has always been the one place in government with a plan, forever in preparation mode and ready to yank a blueprint off the shelf for almost any contingency. Need a response for a Russian nuclear missile launch? Check. Have to rescue a U.S. ambassador kidnapped by drug lords? Yup, check, got that covered. How about a detailed strategy for surviving a zombie apocalypse? As it turns out, check.
Incredibly, the Defense Department has a response if zombies attacked and the armed forces had to eradicate flesh-eating walkers in order to "preserve the sanctity of human life" among all the "non-zombie humans."
Buried on the military's secret computer network is an unclassified document, obtained by Foreign Policy, called "CONOP 8888." It's a zombie survival plan, a how-to guide for military planners trying to isolate the threat from a menu of the undead -- from chicken zombies to vegetarian zombies and even "evil magic zombies" -- and destroy them.
"This plan fulfills fictional contingency planning guidance tasking for U.S. Strategic Command to develop a comprehensive [plan] to undertake military operations to preserve 'non-zombie' humans from the threats posed by a zombie horde," CONOP 8888's plan summary reads. "Because zombies pose a threat to all non-zombie human life, [Strategic Command] will be prepared to preserve the sanctity of human life and conduct operations in support of any human population -- including traditional adversaries."
CONOP 8888, otherwise known as "Counter-Zombie Dominance" and dated April 30, 2011, is no laughing matter, and yet of course it is. As its authors note in the document's "disclaimer section," "this plan was not actually designed as a joke."
Military planners assigned to the U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska during 2009 and 2010 looked for a creative way to devise a planning document to protect citizens in the event of an attack of any kind. The officers used zombies as their muse. "Planners ... realized that training examples for plans must accommodate the political fallout that occurs if the general public mistakenly believes that a fictional training scenario is actually a real plan," the authors wrote, adding: "Rather than risk such an outcome by teaching our augmentees using the fictional 'Tunisia' or 'Nigeria' scenarios used at [Joint Combined Warfighting School], we elected to use a completely-impossible scenario that could never be mistaken for a real plan."
Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze, a spokeswoman for Strategic Command, acknowledged the document exists on a "secure Internet site" but took pains to explain that the zombie survival guide is only a creative endeavor for training purposes. "The document is identified as a training tool used in an in-house training exercise where students learn about the basic concepts of military plans and order development through a fictional training scenario," she wrote in an email. "This document is not a U.S. Strategic Command plan."
This isn't the first time zombies have been used to inspire trainers or the American public. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) built an entire public awareness campaign for emergency preparedness around zombies. "Get a kit, make a plan, be prepared," one CDC poster warns as a dead-eyed woman peeks over a blanket.
But the military appears to have come up with the idea first. And of course, should there be a zombie apocalypse, the military indeed has a plan.
  CONOP 8888is designed to "establish and maintain a vigilant defensive condition aimed at protecting humankind from zombies," according to the plan's purpose, and, "if necessary, conduct operations that will, if directed, eradicate zombie threats to human safety." Finally, the plan provides guidance to "aid civil authorities in maintaining law and order and restoring basic services during and after a zombie attack."
The "worst case threat scenario," according to the plan, suggests a rather dark situation: a zombie attack in which there would be high "transmissibility," lots of zombies eating lots of people, zombies infecting humans at a rapid rate, and little or no immunity and few effective countermeasures.
Under "Zombie Threat Summary," the plan highlights the different kinds of zombie adversaries one might find in such an attack. They include not only vegetarian zombies ("zombie life forms originating from any cause but pose no direct threat to humans because they only eat plant life"); evil magic zombies ("EMZs are zombie life forms created via some form of occult experimentation in what might otherwise be referred to as 'evil magic'"); and also chicken zombies.
"Although it sounds ridiculous, this is actually the only proven class of zombie that actually exists," the plan states. So-called "CZs" occur when old hens that can no longer lay eggs are euthanized by farmers with carbon monoxide, buried, and then claw their way back to the surface. "CZs are simply terrifying to behold and are likely only to make people become vegetarians in protest to animal cruelty," CONOP 8888 notes.  
The catalog of the walking dead also includes zombies that come from outer space; those deliberately created by Frankensteinian bio-engineers; and humans that have been invaded by a pathogen that turns them into zombies.
The catalog of the walking dead also includes zombies that come from outer space; those deliberately created by Frankensteinian bio-engineers; and humans that have been invaded by a pathogen that turns them into zombies. The plan reviews, extensively, the various phases of saving the world from zombie rule and reads not unlike the phases of a counterinsurgency campaign: from "shape" to "deter" to "seize initiative" to "dominate" to "stabilize" and, finally, in the final, confidence-building phase, "restore civil authority." That final phase includes the directive to "prepare to redeploy the forces to attack surviving zombie holdouts."
Finally, "[a]s directed by POTUS and SECDEF," using military-ese for the president of the United States and the defense secretary, "provide support to federal, state and tribal agencies' efforts to restore basic services in zombie-related disaster areas."
If the military's mantra is to "be prepared," then writing a zombie survival guide -- even if it is just for an imaginative exercise -- makes sense. "I hope we've invested a similar level of intellectual rigor against dragon egg hatching contingencies," one defense official quipped.

The 2014 VMAs: All About Oversexualization Pushed by Music Industry Puppets

Aug 26th, 2014 |http://vigilantcitizen.com/musicbusiness/2014-vmas-oversexualization-pushed-music-industry-puppets/


The 2014 VMAs were focused on a single theme – a theme that was expressed using most of the stars of the show. From Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande to Iggy Azalea and Beyonce, the sight and the sounds of the VMAs were about one thing: Oversexualization using Illuminati puppets.

leadvma2014
Last year’s VMAs were all about Miley Cyrus acting like a fully programmed Beta Kitten. This year, nearly all of the performers who took the stage were acting like fully programmed Beta Kittens. When the “highlights” of an award show are the butt implants of Nicki Minaj and (most likely) Iggy Azalea, you know there wasn’t much substance there. After the show, MTV reported as “news” that Austin Mahone said about Nicki Minaj:
“Her butt was just huge. That was all I could focus on.”
This pretty much sums up the 2014 VMAs: a dumbstruck audience staring at butts for a few hours, mixed with some industry pawns getting shiny trophies. While some viewers might say “That was awesome!”, let’s not forget that the target audience of MTV are born around the year 2000. They are the ones growing up watching this, absorbing the sights and sounds. And the sights and sounds of the 2014 VMAs sent a clear message to these youths.
Oversexualization means, simply, “sexualizing excessively”. Yes, making love is a wonderful part of life, but when this act is debased, corrupted, exploited, and sold to young, immature minds, it can produce lifelong negative psychological and interpersonal effects. However, to the occult elite, those effects are desirable because it produces a population with “loose morals”, which is just the kind of population they are looking to create.
One giant creepy All-Seeing Eye is letting you know that the elite is sponsoring this fiasco.

As usual, the VMAs featured small selection of performers. Even “crowd reaction” shots were focused only on a few guests, namely Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Kim Kardashian. In short, the 2014 VMAs were all about the industry kittens.
Here’s a look at the main stars of the VMAs and their main message. You will probably realize that they are all similar, almost as if they were controlled by the same people. Newsflash: They are.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is another children favorite (she was first seen on Nickelodeon TV shows) who is turning industry Kitten.
Ariana Grande is yet another child TV star turned into an industry Kitten.
Ariana Grande mastered the “I-am-so-young-and-innocent” look during her TV career. That look is now combined with skimpy outfits to please perverts around the world. Even the host of the show, Jay Farrow, addressed the uncomfortable feeling caused by Grande’s act.
“Ariana Grande is killing it right now. I’m attracted to her and, you know, I feel a little weird about it because … she looks kind of young, don’t she? You should not be a grown man enjoying Sam & Cat just like your five-year-old nephew. He’s like: “Uncle I like her”. I’m like: “I like her too baby, she’s amazing”.

Sam and Cat was a Nickelodeon show primarily aimed at children under 12. As with many other children favorites, both stars got sexual.
Sam & Cat was a Nickelodeon show popular among children under 12.
Grande's co-star Jennette McCurdy caused some controversy when revealing selfies "leaked" online. Subjecting young fans to these kinds of transformations has become an almost necessary ritual in the entertainment industry.
Grande’s co-star Jennette McCurdy caused some controversy when some of her racy selfies “leaked” online. Once again, young fans witnessed the transformation of a young girl they idolized into a product of the Beta Kitten industry.
Ariana Grande is currently getting a huge push from the industry to launch her career. Unsurprisingly, she is already pushing the messages and the symbolism that comes with being an industry puppet.
In her video "Break Free", the Kabbalistic Tree of Life in used to launch the spaceship. A great way to promote the occult elite's philosophy to clueless viewers.
In her “Break Free” video, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life is used to launch the spaceship. Not unlike Madonna, Britney Spears and other industry Kittens, Grande is into “Hollywood Kabbalah”.

Nicki Minaj

Re-read the title of this article to fully understand this image.
As documented in several articles on this site, Nicki Minaj has been used to push all kinds of Agendas in the few past years. Her latest single, Anaconda, is a continuation of her doing exactly what the industry wants her to do. The song samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back and repeatedly uses the line “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun” which can be translated to “You will not attract guys if you do not have a gigantic butt like Nicki Minaj’s”. When Sir Mix-A-Lot rapped this line in the original song, it was kind of funny and amusing. But, in the context of Minaj’s song, it became a way of making young girls feel inadequate.
If you’re able to not focus exclusively on her butt and listen to the lyrics, you’ll notice that each verse is about Nicki banging a different guy. Because he has money. Pretty uplifting.
This dude named Michael used to buy motorcycles
D*ck bigger than a tower, I ain’t talking about Eiffel
Real country ass n***a, let me play with his rifle
P***y put his ass to sleep, now he calling me NyQuil
Now that bang bang bang, I let him hit it cause he slang cocaine
He toss my salad like his name Romaine
And when we done, I make him buy me romaine
I’m on some dumb s**t
The last line of this verse is quite accurate. But things get dumber. A part of the song repeatedly says “Oh. My. Gosh. Look at her butt”. Meanwhile, during her performance Nicki shook her surgically enlarged behind continuously. It’s these moments of clarity where you realize that our civilization has reached a new cultural low and that we are not far from Roman-style all-out decadence.
Of course, one might say: “It’s a fun song about big butts! Get over it pal!”. Well, okay, pal. Let’s look at the other performance given by Minaj:
Usher bangs his head on Minaj's behind and then slaps it.
Usher bangs his head on Minaj’s behind and then slaps it.
It was not just one song. The entire awards show was all about selling “it” through industry puppets.

Jessie J

For some reason, Jessie J is always invited to big events. Maybe it is because she’s always been down with the Illuminati Agenda. In this case, her single Bang Bang fits perfectly in the overarching theme of the 2014 VMAs. Here is the chorus of the song:
Bang bang into the room (I know you want it)
Bang bang all over you (I’ll let you have it)
Wait a minute let me take you there (ah)
Wait a minute tell you (ah)
Bang bang there goes your heart (I know you want it)
Back, back seat of my car (I’ll let you have it)
Wait a minute let me take you there (ah)
Wait a minute tell you (ah)
Jessie J is just another puppet selling “it” to the youth.

Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora

After trying for years to make it in the music industry, Iggy got buttocks implants and that is pretty much what she's about now.
Iggy Azalea got down and dirty while performing Black Widow.
Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora have both been featured on Vigilant Citizen because they push the Illuminati Agenda (see my article on Iggy’s  video celebrating Kitten Programming). In the VMAs, they performed the song Black Widow, which is the name of venomous female spiders who eat the males after mating. Guess what the song is about? Yup, copulating with a guy and killing him afterwards. Vengeful, evil copulation mixed with death. That is the kind of crap the industry loves to promote.
Two performers, two official seals of industry pawns.

Beyonce

A lot of legs spreading during this award show.
A lot of legs were spread during this awards show.
Not unlike the VMAs of the past few years, Jay-Z and Beyonce acted as the “royal family” of the awards. Beyonce was given the Video Vanguard Award and got to perform a whole lot of songs. Beyonce being awarded in this edition of the VMAs makes sense, since for years she has been the main figure of the Kitten industry. As stated in several articles on this site, Beyonce has been used to push all aspects of the elite’s Agenda.
As expected, Beyonce’s performance got rather raunchy and explicit. Here’s a verse from her song Partition.
Driver roll up the partition please
I don’t need you seeing Yoncé on her knees
Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
We ain’t even gonna make it to this club
Now my mascara runnin’, red lipstick smudged
Oh he so horny, yeah he want to f**k
He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse
He Monica Lewinski’d all on my gown
This was intertwined with a confusing bit about feminism.
I am not a big fan of any term that finishes with -ist. And I do know why Beyonce is standing in front of it.
None of this makes sense. To top it off, it was followed by her singing “Bow down b*tches”.
While Beyonce was performing, the camera kept cutting to Jay-Z and Blue Ivy.
"Look mommy is on the stripper pole now".
“Look, mommy is on the stripper pole now”.
While the presence of Blue Ivy was somewhat heartwarming, there is a question that is needs to be asked. Is anyone else bringing their kids? Why is she so present and publicized? Does she need to be in that spotlight? In the context of these VMAs – which are almost ritual dramas, yes, she needed to be there. She is the heir of the royal couple. Like all of the young people around the world, she witnessed a few hours of intense oversexualization. And then she saw her mother get a trophy for it. The Agenda is about implementing values to the younger generation. And Blue Ivy represented that. And that is how the VMAs ended.
Official seal of the industry pawn.
Official seal of the industry pawn.

In Conclusion

This year’s VMAs did not contain the usual occult symbolism that is described on this site. In fact, it did not contain much substance at all. It focused solely on an key part of the industry agenda: Sexualizing the youth and exposing them to debasing, degrading messages. It is about associating art, music and creation with the exploitation of lust. As seen in the lyrics and images above, the “stars” of the show are not independent artists, they are puppets part of the same system, all linked together under the “one-eye sign”.
In an ideal world, this kind of spectacle would prompt viewers to question the state of modern society’s mass art and culture, which is constantly sinking to new lows. It would make viewers wonder why all this “music” has become a homogenous cesspool of overstimulating, mind-numbing messages. Unfortunately, most viewers will have just one reaction to the 2014 VMAs: “Look at her butt!”

SECURITY BLUNDERS AND PLANE CONSPIRACY

BLUNDERS

SECURITY BLUNDERS AND PLANE CONSPIRACY

On July 17th 2014, in the skies over the Donetsk region supported by a Russian garrison Malaysian flight MH17 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down by what is believed to be an anti aircraft missile system All 298 people who were on board were killed. The vast majority of them – 194 passengers – were citizens of the Netherlands. 43 people, in particular, all the crew members were citizens of Malaysia.
The US claims that it had evidence linking pro-Russian rebels to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, but in the absence of any concrete admission of guilt, and almost no more information about the shooting down of the plane we now learn that the event that has led to what is happening now with Russia and Ukraine will never be fully reported because there seems to be an agreement between certain parties to keep any and all information about the Malaysian plane classified
On August 8th, 2014 Ukraine, The Netherlands, Australia, and Belgium signed a “non-disclosure agreement” keeping any and all information about the downed plane away from any further investigations.
This in my opinion sets the stage for what can be called an awesome conspiracy. A cover- up that for some reason is meant to protect those who were responsible for shooting the plane down.
Apparently this has become a game changer in the process that has led to war and invasion. It appears that there has been no concrete evidence to support that the Russians were responsible for shooting down the plane and when there was an inquiry as to whether \or not the Ukrainian ethnic Russian separatists were responsible the trail went nowhere. Any and all information went into the memory hole.
This non disclosure agreement that classifies the “sensitive information” about the downing of MH17 between Ukraine, Netherlands, Belgium and Australia wouldn’t be necessary if the truth were to come out about the plane. The truth wouldn’t require this measure to be taken, a deception would.
In the framework of the 4-country agreement signed on August 8th between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia, information on the progress and results of the investigation of the disaster will remain classified.
This was confirmed at a briefing in Kiev under the auspices of the office of the Prosecutor General Yuri Boychenko. In his words, the results of the investigation will be published once completed only if a consensus agreement of all parties that have signed the agreement prevails.
It is safe to assume the results of the investigation which now has been going on for weeks will eventually be released in a few years when the political ramifications of the disaster conveniently lose their relevance.
What was a distraction the United States media, never really had a conclusion, only a hypothesis that President Vladimir Putin was responsible and that there would be hell to pay if it were found that he was complicit in the event.
With this turn of events it can only be assumed with an inconvenient conclusion that the intermediate results of the investigation directly prove the innocence of Russia and/or the Donesk militia.
When the lying elite are maneuvering criminal acts all that needs to be done is to flip a switch and declare something off limits to anyone who wishes to expose a conspiracy. When the Governments of the west are hell bent on destabilizing Ukraine and starting World War III we can’t allow for the innocence of a cold war foe to be revealed, it is not good for the business of the war effort.
This is how intelligence not only shoots down a plane but makes it disappear entirely. It is also unknown as to whether or not the American NGOs, which by official admission spent 5 billion dollars in political destabilization efforts prior to the February civil war in Kiev, have suddenly disappeared from the Ukraine.
What we do know is that the situation there is not getting any better and people who can take a side in this attempt at world war are better off realizing that all the governments that are involved including the United States have now voluntarily participated in a conspiracy to bring the world into a conflict while not admitting to any wrong doing.
The question is how and why we continue to allow this to happen in our name, especially while we are being led by a man who has on his desk a Nobel Peace prize.
There is no hope now of getting down to the bottom of who is at fault for what is happening in Ukraine now.
It is very telling as to what is happening here, If this were a card game the United States would be holding the most tombstone looking poker face at the table. Washington has constantly had the winning hand in a propaganda war, despite that fact that all roads lead to the efforts of Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt . We reported when the rumors of uprising began that Nuland was the chief architect of the Ukrainian crisis and played a phone call on the air that literally painted the picture of the whole “wag the dog” scenario.
Back in February, Victoria Nuland made the news when an audio recording of her phone conversation with the U.S. Ambassador with Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, was released. I suppose that when we played the phone call on the air that no one really picked up on the fact that the conversation between her and Pyatt was the smoking gun exposing that planning of this crisis and why it was being carried out.
We also seem to have put into the memory hole any and all pictures that Senator John McCain had taken with the neo Nazi leaders of Svoboda and the Banderist factions that in the days of Hitler were known as the brown shirts.
Waves of propaganda have come from Washington and are made to fit assumptions of Valdimir Putin as a driven imperialist that has used nationalism heightened by the loss of the Soviet empire, to try to expand the Russian Federation up to the borders of Ukraine – It is hard to shake that Soviet image and Americans are obliged to keep the cold war rhetoric at a fever pitch.
Now everyone who has a bad story about Putin or a bad story about Russia will immediately be put at the front of the line so that we can reinforce what we began.
Today is no exception as it was reported that Russia has now invaded the Ukraine. This report had sparked controversy across the world as many countries and journalist were demanding proof that this has happened.
Russia has denied the incursion, however a top NATO official produced satellite photos Thursday to back up his claim that at least 1,000 Russian troops have crossed into Ukraine.
Dutch Brigadier General Nico Tak said the 1,000 Russian soldiers was a conservative estimate and said another 20,000 Russian troops were right over the border.
The satellite images provide what NATO called additional evidence that Russian combat soldiers, equipped with sophisticated heavy weaponry, are operating inside Ukraine’s sovereign territory.
But of course the media once again is responsible for stirring the pot of conspiracy as many mainstream news outlets reporting the invasion as absolute fact decided that the blurry photos provided by NATO were unclear and so they decided to run recycled stock photos of Ukrainian military vehicles for the sake of making it look as if there are a lot of vehicles on the ground.
I suppose it is difficult for the hardliners to understand why there is so much skepticism about what is going on. All sides have been lying since the whole mess began.
Furthermore while no official announcement has yet been made on a plan of resistance NATO officials say they are determined to “create a spearhead” pointed at Russia in Eastern Europe that will include a substantially more “visible” presence of NATO troops there.
So far there is no evidence that this happening and once again what would be considered a hot story in the media about all out war with Russia and Ukraine is now being met with trepidation in some parts of the world.
Even Barack Obama was hesitant to call what is happening there an all out invasion. Obama condemned what he called the latest Russian military advance into Ukraine and said the United States and its allies would take further actions to punish Moscow for violating its neighbor’s sovereignty.
Obama did not say anything about an invasion. Obama right now is more concerned about looking into carrying out air strikes in Iraq and Syria.
Anyone wonder if we have just decided to ignore everything in Ukraine because the mission creep we started is turning out to be a fiasco that would make the west look like provocateurs and maybe even war criminals?
ISIS has taken the attention away from an invasion in Ukraine which is allegedly out of control with blurry pictures provided by NATO. Can anyone see how weird this is becoming and how this whole situation is ripe for conspiracy theory that does not favor the actions of the US state department?
Barack Obama said this of the so called Invasion of Ukraine by Russian Separatist forces:
“I consider the actions that we’ve seen in the last week a continuation of what’s been taking place for months now, these separatists are backed, trained, armed, and financed by Russia. Throughout this process we’ve seen deep Russian involvement in everything that they’ve done.”
Obama’s tone was strikingly more restrained than that of the ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, who earlier in the day bluntly accused Russia of lying about its military intervention in Ukraine. In a blistering statement to the Security Council, Ms. Power said “the mask is coming off” Russia’s actions, which she called “a threat to all of our peace and security.”
I would say that the original American NGO security blunder and classifying of the Malaysian MH17 incident are an even bigger threat to our peace and security. It can be said that this is all being done by design. How can anyone believe anything that is being reported?
Barack Obama sealed the deal when he said in a press conference “We are not taking military action to solve the Ukrainian problem. What we’re doing is to mobilize the international community to apply pressure on them. I think it is very important to recognize that a military solution to this problem is not going to be forthcoming.”
In fact Obama is actually deferring to the UN to actually take care of the problem in Ukraine.
It looks as like a president is picking his battles and in either scenario we have waited too long to see so little action and receiving so little information to allow for the mainstream media to satisfy our want and need to know.
Rest assured that those who already know can see that World War III will most certainly have its foundation built on security blunders and plain conspiracy.

Food Forests Could Bring Healthy Organic Food To Everyone – For Free

let me  fucking ask you folks ! WHY the fuck isn't this ALL over America , huh !!!  fucking Y :o   ~  For Free     ...fucking free  !  we r going the wrong way ...people , the wrong fucking way       we can do better

by . http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/08/31/food-forests-could-bring-healthy-organic-food-to-everyone-for-free/food_forest
Food forests or Forest gardening have been around for a long time with many of the native cultures practicing this form of sustainable agriculture. It is a form of low-maintenance plant-based food production which replicates natural ecosystems, incorporating fruit and nut trees, shrubs, herbs, running vines and perennial vegetables. Beneficial plants and companion planting is a big part of the food forest system.
Unlike much of the modern industrial agricultural system which relies heavily of inputs such as fossil fuels and artificial herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, a food forest once established is self-regulating and highly abundant in yield. 

Why Food Forests?

  • Forests are home to approximately 50-90% of all the world’s terrestrial (land-living) biodiversity — including the pollinators and wild relatives of many agricultural crops (Source: WWF Living Planet Report 2010)
  • Tropical forests alone are estimated to contain between 10-50 million species - over 50% of species on the planet.
  • Rainforests cover 2% of the Earth’s surface and 6% of its land mass, yet they are home to over half of the world’s plant and animal species. 
It is evident that forests themselves are synonymous with life, biodiversity and fertility. Where life gathers, complex and mutually beneficial relationships are created between organisms; natural harmonious communities form, and life forms multiply and proliferate. If forests are where most of the life on the planet is, then anything less than a forest is most likely less suited to supporting life. Life supports life, yet we have forgotten that we are in fact part of the web of life itself, and depend on other life to sustain ours.(1)
forestgardenlayers
Unfortunately society has been conditioned to clear the land and create unsustainable fields which need high inputs to be maintained. Food forests are abundant and can yield significantly more than the conventional farming and mono cropping that dominates much of the industrial landscape today. As well as being high yielding food forests are high in biodiversity and life. Food forests can be developed and grown in most climate zones and because they involve vertical stacking are great for suburban and urban areas. Check out this clip to see how a couple have transformed a traditional suburban landscape into a highly productive forest garden.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ywhC3pdAJ0

Food Forests & Natural Building with Permaculture Jax

The Layers Of A Food Forest

1. Canopy or Tall Tree Layer
Typically over 30 feet (~9 meters) high. This layer is for larger Forest Gardens. Timber trees, large nut trees and nitrogen-fixing trees are the typical trees in this category. There are a number of larger fruiting trees that can be used here as well depending on the species, varieties and rootstocks used.
2. Sub-Canopy/Large Shrub Layer
Typically 10-30 feet (3-9 meters) high. In most Forest Gardens, or at least those with limited space, these plants often make up the acting Canopy layer. The majority of fruit trees fall into this layer.
3. Shrub Layer
Typically up to 10 feet (3 meters) high. The majority of fruiting bushes fall into this layer. Includes many nut, flowering, medicinal and other beneficial plants as well.
4. Herbaceous Layer
Plants in this layer die back to the ground every winter… if winters are cold enough, that is. They do not produce woody stems as the Shrub layer does. Many cullinary and medicinal herbs are in this layer. A large variety of other beneficial plants fall into this layer.
5. Groundcover/Creeper Layer
There is some overlap with the Herbaceous layer and the Groundcover layer; however plants in this layer are often shade tolerant, grow much closer to the ground, grow densely to fill bare patches of soil, and often can tolerate some foot traffic.
6. Underground Layer
These are root crops. There are an amazing variety of edible roots that most people have never heard of. Many of these plants can be utilized in the Herbaceous Layer, the Vining/Climbing Layer, and the Groundcover/Creeper Layer.
7. Vertical/Climber Layer
These vining and climbing plants span multiple layers depending on how they are trained or what they climb all on their own. They are a great way to add more productivity to a small space, but be warned. Trying to pick grapes that have climbed up a 60 foot Walnut Tree can be interesting to say the least.
8. Aquatic/Wetland Layer
This is my first new layer to the Forest Garden. Some will say that a forest doesn’t grow in the water, so this layer is inappropriate for the Forest Garden. I disagree. Many forests have streams flowing through or ponds in the center. There are a whole host of plants that thrive in wetlands or at the water’s edge. There are many plants that grow only in water. To ignore this large list of plants is to leave out many useful species that provide food, fiber, medicinals, animal feed, wildlife food and habitat, compost, biomass, and maybe most important, water filtration through bioremediation (or phytoremediation). We are intentionally designing Forest Gardens which incorporate water features, and it is time we add the Aquatic/Wetland Layer to the lexicon.
9. Mycelial/Fungal Layer
This is my second new layer to the Forest Garden. Fungal networks live in healthy soils. They will live on, and even within, the roots of plants in the Forest Garden. This underground fungal network transports nutrients and moisture from one area of the forest to another depending on the needs of the plants. It is an amazing system which we are only just beginning to comprehend. As more and more research is being conducted on how mycelium help build and maintain forests, it is shocking that this layer has not yet been added to the list. In addition to the vital work this layer contributes to developing and maintaining the forest, it will even provide mushrooms from time to time that we can utilize for food and medicine. If we are more proactive, we can cultivate this layer intentionally and dramatically increase our harvest. (2)

The former acting cybersecurity director for the US Department of Health and Human Services, Tim DeFoggi, was convicted yesterday on three child porn charges.
As reported by Wired, DeFoggi is the sixth suspect to be caught by the FBI's Operation Torpedo, which used controversial methods of defeating the Tor anonymizing software in order to find child porn suspects.
One site frequented by DeFoggi was PedoBook, hosted by Aaron McGrath—a Nebraska man who was convicted earlier for his role in the operations. The websites were only accessible to users who installed Tor on their browsers. DeFoggi used names such as "fuckchrist" and "PTasseater" to register on the sites, where he could view more than 100 videos and more than 17,000 child porn images.
The FBI seized McGrath's site in late 2012 after monitoring him for a year. Then they kept it up and running for several more weeks, gathering private communications from DeFoggi and other users. The FBI used "various investigative techniques… to defeat the anonymous browsing technology afforded by the Tor network."
The techniques used include "drive-by downloads," in which a website installs malware on every visitor's computer.
Such a deployment "can be a bulky full-featured backdoor program that gives the government access to your files, location, web history and webcam for a month at a time, or a slim, fleeting wisp of code that sends the FBI your computer’s name and address, and then evaporates," explained Wired in an earlier piece on Operation Torpedo.
Having set up such a trap, FBI agents got to know DeFoggi better. Wired's Kim Zetter explains:
During chats DeFoggi described using Tor to access PedoBook early in the morning hours and between 4 and 6 pm. Among the evidence seized against him was pen register/trap trace data obtained from Verizon showing someone at his Maryland residence using Tor during these hours as well as the IP addresses used by an AOL account under the username “ptasseater,” which pointed to DeFoggi’s home.
When agents arrived at his home early one morning to execute a search warrant, they had to pry him from his laptop, which was in the process of downloading a child porn video from a Tor web site called OPVA, or Onion Pedo Video Archive. In addition to child porn images stored on his computer, authorities also found evidence of his Tor browser history, showing some of his activity at PedoBook and OPVA.
DeFoggi worked for the Department of Health and Human Services from 2008 until January of this year. He's scheduled to be sentenced in November.

True Detective Season 1 – Esoteric Analysis

The tree of life, the family tree of the Tuttles.
The tree of life, the family tree of the Tuttles.
By: Jay
The first season of True Detective captivated the viewing public this year, topped only by Breaking Bad in attention and critical praise.  While the Internet is rife with theories and analysis, few have succeeded in plumbing the depths of the story in its proper fullness.  While Vigilant Citizen did produce an adequate overall analysis, several important points were missed relating to specific religious symbolism, as well as the numerous philosophical references given by Rust Cohle (played by Matthew McConaughey).  In this analysis I will give the full significance of the first season of True Detective, which ranks as one of the most revealing films of the occult underground since Eyes Wide Shut.
The opening sequence lays out a heavy dose of symbolism that cues the viewer into the dark meaning of the series as a whole: we see key images such as backwoods evangelical revival, strippers, the emblematic tree, a playground, several butts, a black eye and telephone imposed over a child’s head.  The meaning of the entire series is thus not merely the conflict between Rust and Marty in their personal lives, or the elite Satanic rituals, but the impact of the spiritual degeneration that has occurred over just 17 years, from 1995 to 2012.  In other words, the spiritual effect that the infernal powers have brought about over just the last 20 years have resulted in a massive decline in the moral status of American society as a whole.  True Detective is therefore a survey of that degeneration and demonism, juxtaposing what appears as a grotesque, Southern Gothic backwoods existence ruled by an older bloodline (the Tuttles), with the so-called “normal” American family of Marty Hart.

As the series begins, we see an offering of a dead girl in a prostrate pose praying before a tree, wearing a crown of twigs and marked with a spiral symbol.  Detective Rust Cohle is immediately aware of the ritual connotations of the killing, noting the “meta-psychotic” nature of the crime.  Educated readers will recognize the “meta” prefix as referencing notions like metaphysics and meta-narrative. As I’ve detailed before with Spielberg films and Philip K. Dick works, meta-narrative is associated with this higher level discourse, as is found in “twilight language.”  I wrote:
The black eye.
The black eye.
“In semiotics, particularly in Plato’s Sophist, simulacrum is intended to fool the viewer into thinking the copy is the real thing.  The copy takes on a life of its own, yet viewed in scale it would clearly appear that the copy is not real.  This is a perfect analogy for the nature of film itself, as well as the role of the director.  The writer and/or film director is creating a simulacra of the real world with models and pictures, piecing and placing them together in a certain way, just as Roy does with the model train and city he has built. One may think of the simulated beings in Blade Runner or the simulated world of The Matrix here. Spielberg has mastered this art of simulation, and is presenting a simulated reality world – that of UFO-invaded America that is intended to produce a certain effect in the population.  Can this be taken to a larger scale, to which Spielberg and the director himself is a “toy” of the larger, galactic forces or entities of the cosmos?  Are we a Greek scale of being, being “played” and “directed” by the celestial hierarchy?”
Lots of butts.
Lots of butts.
What is applied to the “director” here applies to the thinking of the “meta-psychotic,” who sees a direct connect between his victims and ritual items as copies of the real items.  In the same vein, the notion between “twilight language” is the writing of a script with reality by higher celestial entities, be they angelic or demonic.  Here, the Tuttles are practitioners of “old time religion” – a primal form of voodoo and ritual magic.  Mystical toponomy also comes into play, as Louisiana is the setting for the series, where the Tuttle bloodline has long held sway, having combined their beliefs with the indigenous Santeria and vodoun superstitions.  Cohle immediately senses this, functioning as the series’ prophet/priest, having himself spent years in narcotics enforcement, as well as losing his daughter, resulting in his “touching the darkness.”  A committed nihilist at the beginning, Cohle espouses the very worldview of the Satanic elite – a Nieztschean eugenics stance, combined with eternal return, where materialistic chaos returns to its beginning in endless spirals, associating Cohle’s own mind with the recurring spiral symbolism in the series.  Humans are “sentient meat” that happened to develop the “mirror” of consciousness accidentally, and ever since, man is engaged in a perpetual self-delusion of convincing himself he is a “person” with meaning.  Cohle the philosopher scoffs at these notions, having immersed himself in so many years of battling the darkness.  Nietzsche famously said, “And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you,” which perfectly describes Cohle.

Another version of the cyclical spiral, the wreath portal.
In contrast to Cohle, Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) is Cohle’s simpler partner, the average good old boy cop who cheats on his wife and drinks too much.  The names of both characters are also significant, as Marty “Hart” brings to mind feeling, emotion and simplicity, whereas “Rust” signifies worn with age and a harsh realism, as well as “Cohle” bringing to mind “coal,” being dark, cold and earthen.  The first murder also occurs in “Erath,” with is an anagram for earth, cluing the viewer into the wider scope of the crimes Rust and Marty are unraveling.  The blood spilling on the earth also has ritual significance in most ancient religions requiring blood atonement.  For the sacrifice to propitiate the spirits, blood must be spilled, and often the ground consecrated.  For the Tuttles, the earth is their property, belonging to them by blood rite and pact with the “gods” of the land.  Deuteronomy 12:16 for example, reads: “Only you shall not eat the blood; you shall pour it upon the earth as water.”  Likewise, the famous passage of Leviticus 16:10: “But the goat, on which the lot fell for Azazel, shall be set alive before Jehovah, to make atonement for him, to send him away for Azazel into the wilderness.”
The Tuttle version of Green Man.
The Tuttle version of Green Man.
In the same line of the thought, one of the clues the Tuttles leave for Rust and Marty is the “Green Monster” the child victims describe.  While never specifically explained beyond the inbred Tuttle being a painter, the Green Monster is strikingly similar to the “Green Man” of many ancient pagan cultures, focusing the attention on animism and cyclical nature worship relating the seasons.  As Cohle begins to discover, the Tuttles are definitely patrons of that “old time religion,” but a much, much older version.  In some traditions, the “Green Man” is merged with “Wicker Man,” where human sacrifice begins to come into play.  The Tuttles also light fires after their rituals, and in the climax when Rust and Marty enter the old brick pirate structure on the pirate land, we see charred remains of victims.

As the detectives delve deeper into the Tuttle spiral, they begin to see the utter depravity and statewide scope of the ritual murders, as well as having their investigations curtailed and halted by higher state officials.  Rev. Tuttle, a wealthy elite member of the family who runs the Tuttle Christian schools and ministries, is himself a pedophile Satanist who supplies the cult with poor and displaced girls from the various charities.  This brings to mind similar real-world events surrounding ritual murders and child trafficking, as surfaced in the infamous Franklin Scandal, which involved high level politicians, donors and Catholic ministries, as well as the recent scandals with Jimmy Savile and members of the British elite (and here).  This is crucial, as True Detective is not a fictional drama about cops tracking a serial killer – on the contrary, it is a revelation of real evil and who the real monsters are in our society.
Rust's left eye, as he looks into the depravity of the Tuttle's "left-hand path."
Rust’s left eye, as he looks into the depravity of the Tuttle’s “left-hand path.”
Rust famously states, “I get a bad taste in my mouth out here.  Aluminium. Ash. Like you can smell the psychosphere.”  The psychosphere is a term in ritual magic for the nearest dimension or spiritual realm, directly associated with our thoughts, like the aether or the collective unconscious.  The psychosphere has a “twilight language” of its own, where only those with eyes to see are able to read its signs.  Rust is shown in several scenes as “awake,” while Marty is still asleep, as well as focusing on Rust’s eye.  Rust’s “eye” is awake to the language of the psychosphere, which he had earlier noted was a “conversation” being had through the ritual symbolism.  Rust is thus able to peer directly into the psychsophere at times, giving him insight into the depths of the Tuttle spiral of depravity, through his visions he attributes to LSD and PTSD flashbacks, something akin to Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks.
The first indicator of mind-controlled sex slaves.
The first indicator of mind-controlled sex slaves.
Another important element missed by many is the sex slavery.  The children that are used are not merely abused, they are often sex slaves that have been imprinted with traumatic memories they later believe were “dreams,” due to being drugged during the ceremonies.  The ceremonies were carried out deep in the woods, and resembled “marriage” ceremonies, as the kids were raped by men in masks.  One of the most striking images in the series is the little-noticed indicator that Marty’s own firstborn daughter had been abused, as she draws images of sex acts and places her dolls into a ritual formation that is just like the video Rust confiscates from Rev. Tuttle’s mansion.  In the dialogue with subtitles, the girls discuss that they were told, “You don’t have a mommy and a daddy anymore. They’re dead.”
Rust makes beer can dolls. Aluminium. Psychosphere.

Later, Rust interviews a transvestite named Johnny Joanie that had undergone similar abuse, but had repressed the memories as something he had dreamed.  Rust informs him it was not a dream, but all along, Marty is unwilling to recognize the evil that surrounds him, especially since the indicators are that the abuser is mos likely his wife, Maggie’s father.  Maggie’s father appears to be wealthy and well-connected, likening “everything” to sex – and he is the only other adult Marty’s daughters are seen with.  The only other similar image we see is the photo one of the victim’s mother possessed that Cohle sees, where a girl is surrounded by masked men on horses.  Also connected with this five-man circle, in 2012 when Rust is being interviewed by the Feds, he cuts and shapes his beer cans into the same circle, showing he is aware of the ritual nature of the child abuse and mind control.  This image by a writer at the Daily Beast explains well the connection between the symbols that recur, and note in particular the spiral artwork that Marty’s daughter has done, as well as the flowers, which the inbred Tuttles later explain as incest and/or sex, calling it “making flowers.”
Recurring imagery.
Recurring imagery.
Vigilant Citizen is correct to link the spiral symbol to child sex cults, referencing the real FBI image that associates the symbolism with ritual abuse.  However, the spiral is not just that – it also has reference to the All-Seeing Eye, eternal return, and galaxies, as we shall see later. In my analysis, what no one has yet understood is the anal references as I mentioned earlier, and it is here that the spiral has another level of meaning.  It is not just an “eye,” but a lower eye, the eye of the anus, which is a reference to Satan himself, where the opening of the third eye relates to the serpent chakra at the base of the spine, where the anus is.  While this may seem far-fetched, this is a well-known concept in hermetic and ancient religions, known as the “anthropic principle,” where man is a microcosm of the macrocosm.  The body itself is a map of correspondences between the universe as a whole, in a version of “as above, so below.” As an example, writer James Kelley has analyzed this principle in his essay on the anthropic principle in the Vedas.  Kelley writes, noting the connection to incest in the pagan mythologies that is applicable here to the Tuttle family tradition:
Cohle's books reveal a lot. Notice the Hindu texts which explain his reincarnation ideas, as well as Nietzsche.  Consider Kelley's analysis below.
Cohle’s books reveal a lot. Notice the Hindu texts which explain his reincarnation ideas, as well as Nietzsche. Consider Kelley’s analysis below.
“The centrality of this notion of the Cosmic Man’s holy, creative sleep is evinced by the Iranian story of Yami (parallel to the purusal Yama touched upon above), who is put to “sleep” (Pahlavi xwāb) as a means of saving him from corruption and death.  Interestingly, the Norse primal giant Ymir (whose name is an Western importation of the Indo-Iranian Yami/Yama!) is said to sweat out the primal human couple in a fevered sleep…. Let us not forget that, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the Lord caused a deep sleep to come over Adam as well.  As in the Nordic and Indic versions, Adam’s theoric sleep results in anthropogenesis:  Eve (Gr. Zoe, “Life”) is created out of Adam’s side, and thus are all generations made possible. A similar “unconventional genesis” occurs in the Indo-Iranian myth of Yama and Yami. Yama—who is identified with Purusa by many commentators—is urged by his sister Yami to join with him in creating progeny, since the gods commanded them to multiply. Yami refuses, since incest would displease the gods, and no amount of pragmatic reasoning can sway him. The Vedic text leaves the mystery unsolved; we only know that children were produced from Yama and Yami without incest taking place. Silence and hiddenness is fitting when daring to speak of a mysterion, though: “This is a great mystery” as another sage later cautioned.  Thus, it appears that a central symbol of ancient Indian religion—the archetypal man with limbs outstretched—may be the origin of that image that so haunts our Western minds—the Vitruvian Man, whose measurements illustrate the secret of the squared circle and show forth the sacred proportion that undergirds the cosmos.”

Viewed in this light, black holes or similar stellar phenomena are gateways or portals for celestial powers, and ritual and liturgy becomes a means for opening a doorway.  Vatican insider and exorcist Malachi Martin described the principle behind this thinking in his famous Keys of This Blood as follows:
“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia — rites and practices — was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” (pg. 632)

For example, sex magick practitioner Aleister Crowley stressed the anal and its symbolism as superior to the vaginal, stating “Oh how superior is the eye of Horus to the mouth of Isis.”  This is why Errol, the Tuttle villain who takes the fall, always mows in a spiral, as well as why the vortex that opens in the ritual chamber is a spiral.  The principle of inversion in black magic is demonstrated here, as the lowest part of the body is also the lowest part of the galaxy, a kind of luminous black hole gateway in the psychosphere through which the energy of the infernal powers enters.  Rust is able to see this dark portal in the ritual chamber because he has a psychic connection to the Tuttles and the victims, as several times he is spoken of as having “demons” and seeing “darkness.”  This is why the series has such an anal fixation, as numerous times anal sex comes up, as well as images and references.  The move from 1995 to 2012 demonstrates the “anal-ization” of society, to where “sex is everything,” as Maggie’s dad states about the transition from “Clinton” to 2012. It is also important that True Detective is based on an actual occultic “church” in Louisiana that engaged in all the same types of acts.

The idea of demonic energy being released that may charge the psychosphere is also a biblical idea referenced in the incident of the King of Moab attacking Israel, and losing, prompting him to ritually sacrifice his firstborn son in effigy. 2 Kings 3 states:
“26 And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not.27  Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.”

Christian theology also carries over this concept of ritual effecting a spiritual change, as the liturgy is the reenactment of the events of the crucifixion sacrifice, re-presented as a heavenly offering where the events on earth are a mirror of an eternal celestial liturgy. Early Christian patristic writer Dionysius the Aeropagite describes the liturgical ritual in precisely this way:
“Wherefore that first institution of the sacred rites, judging it worthy of a supermundane copy of the Celestial Hierarchies, gave us our most holy hierarchy, and described that spiritual Hierarchy in material terms and in various compositions of forms so that we might be led, each according to his capacity, from the most holy imagery to formless, unific, elevative principles and assimilations. For the mind can by no means be directed to the spiritual presentation and contemplation of the Celestial Hierarchies unless it use the material guidance suited to it, accounting those beauties which are seen to be images of the hidden beauty, the sweet incense a symbol of spiritual dispensations, and the earthly lights a figure of the immaterial enlightenment. Similarly the details of the sacred teaching correspond to the feast of contemplation in the soul, while the ranks of order on earth reflect the Divine Concord and the disposition of the Heavenly Orders. The receiving of the most holy Eucharist symbolizes our participation of Jesus; and everything else delivered in a supermundane manner to Celestial Natures is given to us in symbols.”
And,
“It is manifest, therefore, that those Natures which are around the Godhead have participated of It in manifold ways. On this account the holy ranks of the Celestial Beings are present with and participate in the Divine Principle in a degree far surpassing all those things which merely exist, and irrational living creatures, and rational human beings. For moulding themselves intelligibly to the imitation of God, and looking in a supermundane way to the Likeness of the Supreme Deity, and longing to form the intellectual appearance of It, they naturally have more abundant communion with Him, and with unremitting activity they tend eternally up the steep, as far as is permitted, through the ardour of their unwearying divine love, and they receive the Primal Radiance in a pure and immaterial manner, adapting themselves to this in a life wholly intellectual.”

Rust has stumbled upon the inverse of all this, as the Tuttle familly are inter-generational, incestuous Voodoo practitioners that serve the “Yellow King of Carcosa.”  While many analyses focus on the literary reference of the Yellow King from a book of short stories from American writer Robert Chambers.  The reference is to a fictional play that drives people mad when enacted, here certainly applicable to True Detective, as the story itself seems to drive Rust and Marty mad, trying to solve the decades-old murders.  I propose a simpler explanation of the “Yellow King.”  Set in Louisiana with numerous references to Santeria and voodoo, the “Yellow King” functions more like a Loa, or a Voodoo demon that is served and propitiated for various purposes.  For the Tuttles, the Yellow King is the terrirorial spirit they serve generationally as patron that has given them wealth and power.  The Yellow King is similar to Baron Samedi, the famed voodoo spirit of Louisiana, only something far more wicked, demanding human sacrifice, and working mind control on his young victims.  While the Loa are not gods themselves, they are subservient to the King of devils, Satan.  Compare the veve or sigil of Baron Samedi to the images of ritual magic behind Marty when Rust shows him his research.

This also explains Reggie LeDoux, the child-drugging meth cook, who has several occultic tattoos, as well as the spiral imprint both Reggie and Errol have burned into their backs.  Reggie has the tattoo of the Icelandic stave, an image similar to the sigils mentioned above, as well as an obvious inverted Pentagram. The spiral is also a version of “666,” which Reggie also has on his chest, as well as a noose.  The noose is interesting because it suggests a death pact for the cult, as the LeDoux and Tuttle families must’ve long had their alliance to control the dark side of the Louisiana underground.  Another element other analyses have not picked up on is that the Tuttles seem to have their hand in, and power over, all the vices in the state – they run prostitution, drugs and gangs, with almost the entire state fearing their retribution.  All the while, they have a front of being philanthropists, ministers and senators.  This is because the vices are supervised by the chief demon, the King of Carcosa, the patron voodoo spirit of the Tuttles – and the Tuttles run it through the complicity of the police, who throughout the series are constantly implicated in running the whorehouse and silencing the exposure and investigation.  There is also suggestion of higher power above Rev. Tuttle, who ends up murdered when his snuff film goes missing.

As mentioned, Rust and the Tuttles seem to have a psychic connection of some kind, and perhaps something else relating to the pasts of both, since both Errol and Rust mow lawns.  Marty seems irrationally irritated by the fact that Marty mowed his lawn, which suggests the mowing of lawns may have had some symbolic connection to who had the “contract” to do so.  Since mowing the lawn has a sexual reference, and the Tuttles mow lawns under “contract,” there is a likely connection between Marty’s daughter Audrey playing in the yard and wearing the crown, and her abuse.  Did the Tuttle weirdos mow Marty’s lawn?  Marty says he mows his own, but it is strangely undone, signifying a connection to the corrupt power structure.  This power structure is aligned with the fallen hierarchy of angels under a “contract” that they believe allows them to “marry” or sacrifice whomever they wish.  In the final confrontation between Cohle and Errol, Errol tells him it’s a marriage and his victims are all his “acolytes,” making clear the liturgical symbology.  The family tree of the Tuttles that signifies ancestor worship and human sacrifice is a version of Yggdrasil, the ancient tree of Norse mythology that is similar to the hermetic tree of life.  For the Tuttles, religion is very much an ancient blood and soil family affair.
Rust finally realizes there is more than matter. He sees Christ.
Rust finally realizes there is more than matter. He sees Christ.
In conclusion, True Detective functions on multiple levels as a mix of numerous influences.  Southern Gothic, neo noir, pulp crime fiction, and occult psychodrama all mesh to form a well-done drama that is one of the best series we’ve seen yet.  Hearkening to Twin Peaks, but without the absurdist elements, True Detective is a spiritual chronicle of the rise of the Satanic in modernity, but a Satanic that is not new, but which had formerly been hidden in the backwoods, sulking out of some ancient grove like a creature from a Lovecraft story.  While the Tuttles’ mind-controlled their victims to do their bidding (even to the point of suicide), as the family members themselves had been mind-controlled by the previous generation, the good news is that Rust finds freedom.  Near death in the hospital after a coma resulting from his battle with Errol, Rust realizes his daughter is in the afterlife, and that death is not the end, and he sees himself with a Christ-like visage.  As Marty and Cohle look up at the stars, Marty remarks that the dark is winning.  Rust replies: “Well, once there was only dark. You ask me, the light’s winning.”  Disturbingly, the news cast is heard stating that the higher Tuttle family members in the senate and other positions are cleared of guilt, though the series has made it clear there were other members of the cult. This shows the control the family still has, while Errol was just a patsy. True Detective is a reminder that no matter how dark and depraved the infernal powers and the deceived humans that serve them become, God has triumphed over evil through the resurrection. On still another level, there’s a “conversation” being had with the audience – true detectives realize the subject matter is real.

Death & lies: The only truth of flight MH17

Published time: August 27, 2014 
Parts of wreckage are seen at the site where the downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed, near the village of Rozsypne (Rassypnoye) in Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine August 1, 2014. (Reuters)

The day Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 fell to Earth in pieces, everyone in our world was told Russia and Vladimir Putin murdered the 298 people aboard.
It is over a month since the biggest ‘shoot-down’ incident in air passenger history, and this is what we know for sure. Whatever happened in the skies above eastern Ukraine on July 17, we’ve been set on a reactionary course charted by either fools or the adjunct henchmen of some unseen game.
Did we risk the outbreak of World War III over hearsay and rumor? A mouthy leadership in the West has revealed the only real truth of this matter: credibility and trust was ‘blown out of the sky’ over Ukraine.

The facts of MH17 now

At 1:15pm in the afternoon on July 17, 2014, the air traffic controllers at Kiev lost radar and voice contact with flight MH17. The Boeing 777-200ER, flying from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, fell in pieces on Ukraine's eastern frontier.
The earliest reports the public received on the catastrophe came from the various mainstream media. Those outlets basically parroted what officials in Kiev and the US State Department released. From the outset, officials in the West started a blame game, and one of massive proportions.
Within a few hours of the event, nearly all media reflected assurances that Russia, and the pro-Russian fighters in eastern Ukraine were guilty. We know now that almost all the initial information on the Malaysian Airlines downing was misleading at best.
Allegations, ‘cooked up’ evidence from social media, and illogical theories took the place of news reporting for days on end. US intelligence sources said sophisticated BUK surface-to-air missile systems were used to down the plane. Supposedly, these launchers were expertly operated by guerrilla fighters who were surrounded by Ukrainian security forces in contested territory. Meanwhile, the same trillion-dollar security and defense industry that the NSA spies on the world with, evidently showed MH17 was shot down by “Vladimir Putin’s Missile.”

We were expected to believe Russia’s president ordered his military to drive a BUK system across Russia’s border, to deliver it to separatist forces there in order to shoot down a friendly aircraft, and then to drive the launcher back into Mother Russia. Moreover, this was all to be accomplished secretly, and in broad daylight through the most hotly-contested real estate in Europe. Western leadership and once-trusted media asked the world to be complete idiots, hapless peons ready for a Ukrainian ‘shock and awe’ campaign.
But today we have a dozen plausible theories of what happened. The most legitimate at the moment, an air-to-air engagement by Ukrainian SU 25 attack aircraft, has been largely ignored even though key experts abide by the theory. The Kiev/US/NATO/GCHQ/EU/White House narrative has quieted down somewhat now, since Russia’s Defense Ministry sent the message that it had all the evidence. But we’re left with crippling counter-sanctions here in Europe. Sanctions levied on Russia based on a heap of lies, for all we know.

The dissimulators of MH17

Where I come from there’s a saying: ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease’. It’s a good saying because it’s true. Well, the ‘squeaky wheel’ in this tragedy reveals more malicious intent than we’ve seen since the two great world wars.
Almost instantaneously the most powerful and vociferous US politicians leaped into action. Major media from CNN and Fox to Reuters and the BBC followed suit, as if scripted. US Secretary of State, John Kerry, for one, now appears as a ‘hothead’ or irresponsible over early claims of ‘knowing’ in a dire international incident. It’s interesting to note that Kerry has now faded into the background, left professing other truths about Gaza, Iraq and a resurgent need to strike in Syria.
Moments after MH17 went down, Kerry’s State Department announced America’s ‘horror’ over the loss. Then, just over four hours after the fact, Vice-President Joe Biden proclaimed MH17 had been “blown out of the sky” over “pro-Russia-controlled” east Ukraine. Reuters tweeted Biden’s headline not five hours extant, provoking the question: How did Joe Biden know so soon? Reuters Top News         @Reuters
: U.S. Vice President Biden says Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down, "not an accident, blown out of the sky"
Then presidential hopeful and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton entered the fray, hot on the trail of truth, no doubt. Clinton appeared on the Charlie Rose Show the evening of the 17th to discuss MH17, pointing at Russia and observing stock prices. Any reasonable person might ask ‘How was it even possible to discuss the event so soon?’ and ‘Why was Clinton so focused on the stock ticker?’ The pieces of the Malaysian airliner, the bodies of the victims, had not even stopped smoldering. Clinton pounded out the obvious concept that “the equipment used had to have come from Russia.” She further illustrates her total disdain of public understanding. Any American child having been indoctrinated to know, Ukraine was once part of the USSR back in school. Where else would their weaponry come from?

Then we saw America’s favorite State Department punching bag, Jen Psaki, come on two days later to assure us further that the administration was appalled by the insurgents who speak Russian “limiting access” to the crash site. All this after OSCE monitors had begun investigating right after the disaster. And all this misinformation at a moment when the Kiev junta had simultaneously launched a massive offensive right on top of the investigation zone? The media mirrored this, without even so much as an annotation that the separatists were being surrounded and bombarded relentlessly from the west.
“We are deeply concerned by the Russia-backed separatists’ refusal to allow OSCE monitors safe and unfettered access to the crash site of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. Yesterday, the monitors were allowed only 75 minutes at the site. Today, they were allowed less than three hours. Thus far, the separatists have only allowed monitors to have limited access to a small area.”
To add insult to injury, John Kerry spoke with CBS Face the Nation, and other major TV media the Sunday after MH17 crashed. Again Russia was culpable. Headlines from Kerry’s MH17 campaign had the Secretary of State of the United States of America claiming “Enormous amounts of evidence” to show.
But we’ve never seen any of it.

A zero-trust world

The New York Times, CNN and the mighty BBC were not the only media pounding out a message on their war drums in late July. Even a former tech-blog-turned-world-events tabloid spiked the punch for the Millennial Generation with ‘Rebels Load MH17 Victims' Bodies Onto Train Cars, Destination Unknown’. Destination unknown? Really? As if Putin himself wanted to bury the bodies in Irkutsk.
It is significant to note here, one of the editors of the Kyiv Post contributes information and editorial to Mashable, the world’s most-read social media outlet. But perhaps that’s just another coincidence in this most recent high tide of ‘coincidental’ truth. What’s more important for the public now are the results we are feeling because of MH17’s downing, and the subsequent blame game. To wit, the greater catastrophe we have been led into.
Just a few days after those poor passengers on flight MH17 perished, Washington sounded a bugle charge to the European Union to impose severe economic sanctions on Russia over that country’s involvement. Even though ‘involvement’ had yet to be proven. Soon afterward, Brussels complied with America’s bidding. Russia and Putin, at long last, responded in kind.

Putin countered by banning agricultural products from Europe. Now farmers and other businesses across the EU face almost certain ruin, the protests and cries for help, having already begun. What’s even more potentially disastrous (especially for the US) is the probability the EU will come to its senses and retract the sanctions. When this happens, the Germany-US bond may well be broken, the likely replacement being Russia.
Insinuations of aggression by Russians, this has been the dogma of the Western leadership since before the Sochi Olympics. Vladimir Putin, considering the vehemence with which every Russian construct has been attacked this last year, has been unbelievably calm. The West attacks Sochi and the Olympics - Putin puts on fantastic games. The McCains and Kerrys of America incite riots in Maidan Square - Putin watches and informs. The Russian language is brought down in Ukraine - Russian speakers beg for help. Then Russia takes back Crimea in a bloodless annexation – Washington and NATO use it, just like MH17, for another propaganda extravaganza.
Most notably though, even despite a chorus of sabers clinking from Washington, London, and Warsaw, Putin only countered with counter strategy, not tanks and massive military force, and that is ‘defense’, not ‘offense’, my friends. Now it’s safe to ask: Who is the real aggressor here?
Today the headlines for MH17 read ‘Briton killed when flight MH17 shot down over Ukraine identified’ or ‘Remains of Irish MH17 victim formally identified’, along with stories about Malaysian Airlines restructuring.
Barack Obama, David Cameron, Australia’s Tony Abbott and the rest of those so sure for their right, now they've gone completely silent. Their theories and professions have literally disappeared, leaving us all either to accept their judgmental evangelisms at the start, or to forget about the perpetrators of the 21st century’s most dangerous political catastrophe so far?
How is this even possible? We have nationalized all the poor victims, boxed and shipped off all the bodies, while the souls of those killed linger aloft somewhere, killed by unknown assailants. If transparency does not happen very soon, our belief in justice and truth will be the ultimate victim.

Can we live down a travesty?

Somewhere in Spain today, a farmer sits pondering the eternal, the dilemma each of us has wrestled with at one time or another, ‘What am I going to do?’ More appropriately though, what is the EU to do? We’ve no need to regurgitate economic catastrophes from Portugal, Greece, Italy, Ireland, or to tell you about Romanian austerity horror stories here.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other EU leadership are reeling at this moment to steady a staggered confederation of nations. Spanish farmers burning EU flags over harvested peach crops, the imagery of that pretty much says it all. Sanctions levied on to a massive consumer nation like Russia, for no concrete reason, shows either a vast incompetency in the West, or an absolutely resolute posture toward conflict and chaos.
If Brussels does not come to its senses soon, hundreds of thousands more will lose their jobs in the next year. ING Group just reported the potential cost from these sanctions might exceed 6.7 billion euro and cost 130,000 jobs, conservatively.
We are witnessing one of the biggest travesties of foreign policy ever perpetrated on Earth. While some may argue I am being sensationalistic here, consider Hillary Clinton on TV minutes after a mass murder blaming Russia for the crime. More than this, think of why she was consulting the stock ticker during her frenzied look to understand the tragedy, before anyone could have known what took MH17 out!

Logic demands we ask: ‘Or did they know?’ I mean, did the American administration ‘really know’ who killed all those people? Days later we saw inside Russia’s equivalent of ‘the war room’, evidence to the contrary presented by a professional soldier. But somehow the report you see below in the video was not presented as a counterpoint, but as a propaganda piece by BBC, Reuters, and the others in the West.

Now we experience a humanitarian convoy, held up by Kiev with vital food and medicine for Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine, widely reported as ‘an invasion’ by Putin. We’re asked to believe again, in trumped-up allegations that the same Russia that rolled over the Blitzkrieg in World War II, the same Russia that made us ‘duck and cover’ in the 1960s, the same Russia that struck fear into all Europe during the Cold War, that those Russian armed forces need to sneak into Ukraine in first aid trucks.
Excuse me, but this is something a lunatic would utter. Just like some lunatics cried ‘Russian wolf’ when the streets of Sochi were running over with wolves and gay haters, the second most-powerful military in the history of Earth has to ‘sneak past’ a broken Ukraine junta’s forces? Like me, the reader should be laughing and crying at the prospect.
For me, judging Putin in all this brings me to one inextricable conclusion. I wonder what the world expects from a great leader. I wonder what my fellow Americans envision a Russian politician needs to do to represent his or her people. Is Ukraine not at least as ‘Russian’ as it is anything else? And if parts of Ukraine are indeed Russian, what kind of man would leave his people to starve? To be slaughtered? What kind of Russia would stand by and watch NATO stick ballistic missiles 250 miles from Moscow?
Since we’ve more questions than answers since MH17 went down in a fireball, maybe the ultimate inquiry is introspective. What kind of America supports lies and kills or destroys the lives of millions of people?
The gravity of that question should compel us to demand the answers. Not tomorrow, but today. My fellow Americans would not cheat the world.
