Agent provocateurs from WTO Seattle to SPP Montebello

PEJ News - Joan Russow. I attended the protests in Seattle In 1999, and I wrote the following, in 1999 about Agent provocateurs in Seattle:

On Wednesday, December 1, the day after the major protest and march, and the day for Clinton’s arrival, there were increased security measures including the placement of the downtown area under a curfew.

 

"I had an interview with the RAI [Italian] television station at the Sheraton hotel which was in the area under strict security. At first, I was not going to be allowed into the area. I explained that I had a television interview at the Sheraton and I showed the card from the RAI Television Station with a room number on it from the Sheraton. It was incredibly tense. I was called on my cell phone by Malcolm Curtis from the Times Colonist and described the situation down town. At one point, I was standing outside the Sheraton and I saw a group of men dressed in black looking like “typical protesters” and I wondered how they had been able to get in the area near the Sheraton where many of the delegates to the WTO were staying. With Clinton there, the police and the military had little tolerance for any of the protesters in the area in front of the Sheraton. As I looked up every street that was lined with military, police guards, and vehicles, I said to the supposed protesters. "I don't think that there is enough of a military presence here, perhaps they should call in the Canadian military." I was astounded by their response when they laughed and said as though the Canadian military could help. This was not a response that I would expect from protesters; I thought at the time that they were military agent provocateurs who could not resist defending the power of the US Military. "

Now in 2007,  at the SPP Summit in Montebello, it was reported in the CBC:

"Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that three of their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que.Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that three of their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que"

3 Fish, A Pizza Joint & Building 7

PEJ News - casazaza -
If there's no real enemy don't worry - the Department of Homeland Criminals will make a bunch. And that's part of the technique that has been utilized throughout history. The human animal has a natural tendency to get trapped within the amity-enmity complex. You have seen it your whole life - think back to when you were in school and various classmates would gravitate toward one group or another in order to look cool to their friends, or else they risk not being accepted. Other individuals become excluded, marginalized - this provides an in-group and out-group mentality which serves to clearly identify who you are - at least according to the group mind.

A Disneyland of Militant Ignorance: The American Normalization of Mass Murder


Phil Rockstroh - Given the nation's tottering infrastructure, imperial overreach abroad and vandalized constitutional process by a lawless executive branch, what will it take to scare the general public, mainstream press and political classes into immediate action to bring about meaningful change? At this twilight hour of the American republic, there must come a paradigm shift of seismic proportions or else the republic will perish. I'm less than optimistic. Insomuch as, I suspect, that if, during a rare press conference, George W. Bush's face were to suddenly shed its skin, right on camera, live on national television, on all channels, broadcast and cable, to reveal the countenance of a Gila Monster -- the elitist beltway punditry would begin to catalog the merits of his reptilian single-mindedness.

Life in the New World Order - Soul Mates or Cell Mates?

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government .... all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." - Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976

Anomalies, Prisons, and Geophysics: How Governments Use Data

PEJ News
- A common definition of an anomaly is "a deviation from the common rule, type, arrangement, or form." This definition, however, can be simplified by stating that an anomaly "is a deviation from specific parameters." The defining characteristic of an anomaly is that it can only exist in a comparative setting, implying that it can only be detected within a certain data set. Once a data set is obtained then parameters can be specified to filter out so called anomalies for evaluation. Depending on the type of data collected, these parameters can be specified to be anything occurring in any combination. If there is no data set, then there are no anomalies.

Chaos In The New World Order

PEJ News
- CasaZaza - Unification of Europe was first - now the North American Union is in full swing - replete with fuzzy, double-speak, feel good names like Harmonization, Deep Integration, Free Trade, Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement, etc. These measures, based on negating geopolitical boundaries and securing monopolistic markets, will ultimately lead to the clash of cultures, as has already begun. Of course the elite will have a solution for the Hegelian problem they created, namely, a new world order

Ecology and the Hierarchy of Needs

PEJ News - Richard Walpole - The threat of global warming, or climate change, is making us look closely at how we are meeting our needs. Clean water, clean air, good food, shelter, clothing, family and friends, health and education, work for income, justice and the rule of law, transportation; how we get those needs is being examined with a view to harm reduction. But in 1943, a psychologist named Abraham Maslow postulated that there is, in fact, a hierarchy of needs, and that if a person is trying to fulfill a need at a lower level, needs higher up the scale pretty well have to wait .

Amway Rutz - the Soy made you gay

PEJ News - Rick Barnes - Now I know why I am Gay. It has taken so long to figure out but now its clear to me thanks to Jim Rutz in an exclusive commentary on WorldNetNews. Rutz in a shocking new report says "Soy is making kids 'gay'. Its no wonder you don't see those big strong good ole country beer swiggin an spittin boys eating soy. They must have an inate sense as to the value of a big steak over a few cubes of tofu. Its making sense to me now. If I were PETA, I would be very worried right now.

Reports of Israeli Withdrawal from Lebanon were Premature

PEJ News - Winter Patriot - Last Sunday, relying extensively on the BBC, your nearly frozen scribe reported on Israel's claim that its "Defense" Forces had finally left Lebanon, after more than a month of open warfare and several weeks of an uneasy truce, periodically punctuated by blatant Israeli violations.
