Secret and Suppressed - Paranormal Podcast 52

This just in from my friend Kenn Thomas, a pivotal force in parapolitics and someone who diligently researches his subject. Documentation rules for KT, which, of course, is pretty important in this field... keeping in mind Sagan's old quote about extraordinary evidence... trust me... Kenn's got that. Despite what the text below copied off the site says, unlike some folks out there, Kenn's research modalities justify the motto of his magazine: "All Conspiracy, No Theory."

Listen and learn!

Secret and Suppressed - Paranormal Podcast 52

Conspiracy buffs, your time has come on the Paranormal Podcast! Tonight, we interview Kenn Thomas who is the co-editor of the new book Secret and Suppressed II.

The book is the sequel to the 90s cult classic that partially inspired the X Files. It is chock full of every conspiracy theory you've heard of and a bunch you haven't.

Check out the book at Amazon.com, it is fascinating even if, like me, you don't buy all of the theories:

Political Debate: Crimes Against Us: Greenwich, Connecticut

Just posting this bit of American criminality and repulsion generating favoritism as it's from one of my hometown newspapers. I must say that our roster of treasonous pols in Connecticut is more than just embarrassing, it's nauseating to be within their sphere of poison. I'm hoping the revolution comes soon...

Greenwich Post on Green Party Duffee's exclusion from Debates

Minor parties cry foul over debate exclusion

Incumbent Congressman Christopher Shays (R-4) and his Democratic challenger, Cos Cob resident Jim Himes, have finished up their debate schedule and are looking ahead to Nov. 4, but two major third-party candidates were on the outside looking in.

Neither Richard Duffee, nominee for the Green Party, nor Michael Carrano, nominee for the Libertarian Party, were invited to participate in the debates. Organizers said they didn’t meet the criteria for inclusion and Mr. Duffee is crying foul.

“I’m convinced these debate organizers reached a decision before considering any of the evidence,” Mr. Duffee said in an interview with the Post on Tuesday. “They had the decision made before we even applied to be in a debate. They made that decision based on party and not on the individual. They decided that only Republicans and Democrats should be able to debate.”

The third-party candidates were not invited to appear in the series of League of Women Voters’ debates in the district. State league president Jara Burnett, a Riverside resident, said that while Mr. Duffee and Mr. Carrano did meet the requirement that the candidate be on the ballot, they did not meet the other criteria for inclusion, including broad voter support, sufficient money, and evidence of a campaign being waged, such as having a headquarters, volunteers, position papers, and participation in candidate forums.

“We wanted to provide as much information to the voters from the candidates who are running a really vigorous campaign because we have a limited time format,” Ms. Burnett told the Post.

Ms. Burnett said fund raising was also a factor, citing the league’s decision in 2006 to allow Libertarian Party nominee Phil Maymin to participate after he raised $40,000, but said it wasn’t the most important part of what led to the decision.

“It’s not just a matter of money,” Ms. Burnett said. “It’s a matter of how active your campaign is. Sometimes it’s as simple as seeing whether someone answers the phone at the number we’re given [as] ‘Duffee for Congress’ or ‘Hello.’ In 2006 you saw a very active campaign from Mr. Maymin. You saw Maymin for Congress signs and he sent out mailings. I’ve yet to see anything for Mr. Duffee.”

Mr. Duffee called the league’s stance “totally arbitrary.” Mr. Duffee said he does have office space, which he claims the league found unsatisfactory, as well as a cellular phone representing the main line for the campaign that costs him $100 a month. He said he has raised more than $9,000 for the campaign, more, he claims, than Mr. Maymin had raised before the debate applications were due in 2006, and that he has actually written more position papers than Mr. Himes and the four Republican congressional challengers in the state’s other districts.

“People don’t know I’m running because I’m not in the debates,” Mr. Duffee said. “When you get in the debates then you can raise money. It’s a chicken-and-egg situation. When I tell people I’m running they want to know why I’m not in the debates. The league is influencing voters and how people perceive the race, and they should lose their 501(c) status as an educational group because they are acting in a partisan manner favoring Republicans and Democrats.”

Mr. Carrano could not be reached for comment. Richard Lion, chairman of the Connecticut Libertarian Party, told the Post he thinks the standards for third parties are unreasonably high.

“I think it hurts the voting public,” Mr. Lion said. “We go through so much getting the signatures on petitions to actually get on the ballot and then we get shut out of the debates. It’s like you’re running a race and they tell you the established runners have to run a mile and everyone else has to run 10.”

There were no third-party candidates in the Business Council of Fairfield County’s debate Monday morning in Stamford. Joseph McGee, vice president of public policy for the business council, said it was an easy decision to just focus on Mr. Shays and Mr. Himes as candidates.

“In the past we’ve had third-party candidates, but this year we wanted to focus on one of the two who will win,” Mr. McGee told the Post. “Since we only had a 60-minute format for this debate, we wanted to give them as much time as possible to debate each other and make their positions clear.”

Mr. McGee said Mr. Duffee and Mr. Carrano don’t have much of a chance of influencing the race, unlike in 2006, when Mr. Maymin had the opportunity to upset the vote. Mr. McGee said he doesn’t think the third-party candidates will do that this year.

Mr. Duffee did attend the Monday debate, sitting in the audience and then passing out his literature after it was over. Mr. McGee said he understands why Mr. Duffee is disappointed in the council’s decision, but he feels it is best for voters.

“While he’s got a constitutional right to be on the ballot, this is a private organization and we wanted to focus on the two candidates,” Mr. McGee said.

Ms. Burnett said there will be participation from Mr. Duffee in other league efforts, including an electronic voter’s guide and a printed guide distributed a week before the election.

Truth from 9/11 Shanksville Eyewitness Susan McElwain

Looks like the History Channel is complicit, too, although I've not seen their hack job as I'm sans TV. Remember my friends - that in the heat of the moment and just before clamp down orders reached all staff, United Airlines stated that 93 landed in Cleveland; the likely scenario was depicted in Loose Change. What happened to the people? For an insight, see the chilling video of one heroic lady's fake 9/11 call... and remember of course that cell calls from aircraft were impossible in 2001... also keep in mind the physics problem wherein a plane simply can not go as fast as the government claims at low altitude. The "debris," by the way, was scattered about by the C-130 that was seen and officially acknowledged to be in the area. The "wing scars" were in existence since at least 1994, clearly shown on a USGS aerial photo taken in that year. So we're left with this cruise missile (MQ-9 predator UAV? JASSM?) making the little smoking crater, under the cover of the various war games the Dick was overseeing. I mean, my God... will it never end? Are they to get away with treason and murder?


This uncut interview footage with Shanksville Eyewitness Susan McElwain debunks the Official Story and exposes The History Channel's heavy editing of her eyewitness account.

McCain Staffer Threatens to Arrest Journalist for Exposing Paid 'Volunteers'

Well, how thoroughly disgusting. A harbinger of the coming police state via a mindless thug working for the psychopaths known as McCain/Palin. They're all about hate... and unfortunately it's us that they hate.


More at http://www.theuptake.org
If there's one thing both the McCain and Obama campaigns agree on it's that the election will be close in Florida. The McCain campaign says it has more volunteers than the Democrats and that ultimately gives them the edge. McCain's Central Florida Campaign Manger says ACORN and the Democrats have to rely on paid workers.

However, the McCain campaign is hiring paid workers who sometimes also call themselves volunteers. The UpTake's Sam Mayfield talked to a few of them... and that's when one McCain campaign worker decided you shouldn't see what is going on and threatened to have her arrested.

Irish bookie calls US race over, pays off on Obama

Well now, when Elf Hellion sent me this piece I was amazed at the confidence in the result that this bookie showed... I mean... damn! Then I read further that they do this a lot, but still... so let's hope (and pray if you're into that) that Paddy's not embarrassed on the day... even though I prefer Ron Paul, who hasn't voted with the corporate scum or been AIPACed... not that he has a chance, but Obama has at least a theoretical chance of actually doing something good.

DUBLIN, Ireland - The race is over as far as Ireland's biggest bookmaker is concerned.

Paddy Power PLC says it is so sure Barack Obama will win the U.S. presidential election next month that it paid off Thursday on all bets it had taken backing the Democratic candidate. It said it shelled out more than €1 million, about $1.35 million.

"We declare this race well and truly over and congratulate all those who backed Obama — your winnings await you," the company said in a statement.

Paddy Power has a long tradition of winning free publicity by paying off early, particularly on political contests — and it also has a recent record of getting the result spectacularly wrong.

In June, the company paid out early in favor of people who bet Irish voters would approve the European Union's latest treaty in a referendum. The next day, a "no" result sent shock waves across the 27-nation EU, and cost Powers a hefty sum since it ended up paying off both sides of the bet.

The same thing would happen to Powers if it guessed wrong about the U.S. election. The pro-Obama bettors would keep the winnings paid out Thursday, while John McCain backers would cash in, too.

Powers said the biggest winner among the Obama bettors was someone who gambled €100,000 and got back a total of €150,000.

The most visionary bettor, though, was the "punter" who put down €50 on Obama in 2005. At the time, Obama was listed at 50-to-1, so the bettor got €2,550.

Despite calling the contest, the Dublin-based bookmaker said it is still taking new bets on the race. A John McCain victory Nov. 4 on a bet placed Thursday would pay off €5 for every €1 bet. By contrast, each €1 bet on Obama would net just 11 € cents.

LOWFI's most exciting event yet!

The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists

Presents our most exciting event yet!

Join conspiracy writers Kenn Thomas and Adam Gorightly for an evening of brain-tickling lectures

Sunday, October 19 @ 7pm at an undisclosed location in Echo Park

Were the Early UFO Contacees Ritual Magicians?

Adam will present startling evidence that the early UFO contactees, as well as current day abductees, have used ritual magick, wittingly and unwittingly, to summon forth UFOs and their often interesting occupants!

Wilhelm Reich Versus the Flying Saucers

Kenn traces the history of the battle between the psychologist Wilhelm Reich and UFOs in the desert of the American southwest in the 1950s, detailing the involvement of the Eisenhower administration and the development of the military industrial state. Reich was a world renowned intellectual, a protégé of Sigmund Freud, who emigrated to America after WWII and caused controversy over his work with an energy source he called orgone. Toward the end of his life, Reich designed technologies to utilize orgone in combating what he perceived as an alien invasion from space. Thomas reviews this story, including Reich's trip through Roswell and the documentary proof left behind by Reich of the existence of MJ12, the shadowy alien interface group.

Copies of Kenn's new book, Secret and Suppressed II: Banned Ideas and Hidden History into the 21st Century will be available at the lecture.

Please consider carpooling for this event, as there is limited street parking. The location will be provided in an email later this week. If you have any questions, please email Skylaire at gmail dot com.

Palin Brushing Up On Foreign Policy At Epcot

I read this over at the Onion and I just roared. Those dudes are just so very good at what they do. They are one of the few teams in humor that can get me to smile, and even laugh through my depression. Seriously, though, they always raise awareness of serious issues, like this incredibly frightening choice for leader of the free world, as that's what she'll be as soon as the psychopath kicks the bucket, which wouldn't be too long I think. Someone who is a hell of a lot more bone-headedly stupid (and mean) than that unfortunate teen beauty queen they're always mixing in on all those YouTube videos. Anyway, thanks Onion!

Palin Brushing Up On Foreign Policy At Epcot

September 29, 2008 | Issue 44•40

ORLANDO, FL—Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin sought to silence those who have criticized her lack of foreign affairs experience Tuesday by announcing plans for a weeklong, 10-nation tour of Walt Disney World's Epcot. According to Palin, the trip—her first past Frontierland—will include speaking engagements at Norway's famous Viking ride, sausages at Germany's Kaufhaus, and, time permitting, a fact-finding mission to Future World. "This ambitious trip should finally demonstrate that I am ready to assume the vice presidency, whether by standing in long lines at Morocco's Tangierine Café or by sitting down face-to-face with Mexico's Three Caballeros," Palin announced during a campaign stop outside a Chinese restaurant in Tulsa, OK. "All of our neighbors deserve good diplomacy, from the Universe of Energy down to the French pavilion." Palin also promised a visit to the American Adventure exhibit before returning home, adding that she hoped to learn more about her own nation and the diverse peoples within.
