*Scott Stapp Threatened to Kill President Obama, Claims Singer’s Wife

(excerpt)

In late November, days after revealing that he’s “penniless” and living in a Holiday Inn, Creed frontman Scott Stapp was placed in a temporary, involuntary psychiatric hold following a request from his estranged wife, Jaclyn Stapp. Now, according to TMZ, Jaclyn and her sister attempted to place the singer in psychiatric care a second time following his initial release, after Stapp claimed to be a CIA agent tasked with the assassination of President Obama.

In a 911 call obtained by TMZ – and available to stream below – the sisters describe Stapp as being “off the drugs” and riding shirtless on a bicycle around his neighborhood, carrying two backpacks containing numerous (reportedly 400-600) CIA documents and assorted tools (including a screwdriver, wrench and a hard drive). They describe Stapp’s previous stints in rehab and his attempts to “self-medicate” paranoid schizophrenia. “I love him, and I want to see him get better,” Jaclyn says at the end of the clip. “But I just need law enforcement’s help. That’s the only way he’s gonna stop — when he hits his rock bottom.”

*“Return to Oz” : A Creepy Disney Movie That is Clearly About Mind Control

(excerpt)

While The Wizard of Oz was chosen and twisted to become a programming tool, Return to Oz was custom-made to become an ode to mind control. Based on Frank L. Baum’s The Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz (books 2 and 3 of the series), the Disney production added several key elements to the tale to make it about mind control. For instance, in the books, Dorothy is not sent to a psychiatric ward to get electroshocked. Why was this unsettling bit added to the movie?

Ancient and Modern Gnosticism

Ancient and Modern Gnosticism

(Excerpts)

…it was the discovery of a cache of ancient Gnostic scriptures at Nag Hammadi in the Egyptian desert in 1945 that really set off the modern phase of the Gnostic revival.

Although their translation into English was not complete until the late 1970s, early access to some of the writings inspired the great psychologist Carl Jung to draw parallels between the ancient Gnostics and modern depth psychology.

The publication in 1977 of the Nag Hammadi Librarytranslations, followed in 1978 by religious scholar Elaine Pagels’ best-selling exposition, The Gnostic Gospels, guaranteed that Gnosticism would not go away anytime soon.

Christian aspirations to a universal faith, applicable to anyone with ears to hear, led many Gnostics to posit that God the Father, of whom Jesus spoke, must be a different God altogether: a hitherto Unknown God Who existed far above the earthly realm and was free of ethnic contracts or favouritism.

Christ functioned as the messenger from this remote and impartial God, and some Gnostic scriptures downgraded the Jealous God of the Old Testament to the role of Demiurge, a lesser creator-god who brought a flawed Creation into existence and mistakenly ruled it with a heavy hand as if he were the True God.1

Thus, in the Gnostic view, salvation from this diminished material realm of suffering and injustice depended less on one’s mere beliefs or on the following of religious laws that the Demiurge put in place, than on the individual’s inner experience of gnosis – a divine knowledge of the cosmic order and one’s true identity.

The Gnostic scriptures alluded to Christ’s secret teachings, which would aid the Gnostic to embrace gnosis, and armed with this knowledge, to escape the illusory realm of the Demiurge at the time of death.

The most common Gnostic revision of the Creation story spoke of Sophia (Wisdom), an extension of the True God, venturing forth from the Pleroma (the fullness of the ineffable divine realm), producing an aborted spiritual being, Ialdobaoth (the Demiurge), who in turn created the flawed material world.

Sophia, seeing sparks of the divine entrapped in matter, descended to try and free them and was herself entrapped.

It took the efforts of the Christ (pre-existing in the Pleroma) to extricate her and return her, past the Archons presiding over intermediate planes, to her rightful place beside Him: a tale symbolic of the plight of the soul enmeshed in illusion.

Finally, the indications in Gnostic scriptures, such as the Gospel of Philip and the Gospel of Mary, that Mary Magdalene was closer to Jesus than the other disciples and received secret teachings denied to them, undercut both St. Paul’s misogynist version of Christianity and the Catholic Church’s claim to legitimacy based on St. Peter’s supposed selection as the “rock” on which the Church would be built.

The prominent role given to the Divine Feminine via the Gnostic veneration of the Magdalene and Sophia was partly recuperated by the Roman Church through the significance it later afforded the Virgin Mary, but this status was subsumed within the overall supremacy of a Church run by celibate males.

In ripping away the façade of normality, we come face to face with our true dilemma – we live in a maze of illusions and self-delusions from which we must extricate ourselves. This is, of course, a fundamentally Gnostic worldview.

The ancient Gnostics were aware that material existence is, at its root, a beguiling and temporary illusion. (Hindus called this “Maya”).

Modern physics has confirmed this at the sub-molecular level, where one can see that apparently solid objects are, in fact, composed of moving bits of energy that are neither wholly particle nor wave. The closer one looks, the less there is to see. The vast emptiness of outer space is mirrored by the vast emptiness within matter itself.

Esoteric traditions around the world teach that consciousness can exist independent of the body, and that the ability to deliver our consciousness from its addiction to sensory input and compulsive thought patterns can lead to an experience of divine consciousness (gnosis).

The message of the Christ of the Gnostics was not that he considered himself the unique and only Son of God, but that each person has the potential to expand their consciousness across the vast emptiness to the level of godhood or Self-realisation.

If the illusoriness of daily life was self-evident in the relatively simple world of two millennia ago, it is becoming even more so, for those with the eyes to see, in the present world of cybernetic virtual realities, Hollywood dream-worlds, instant messaging, corporate branding campaigns, and information warfare.

(Excerpt)

… your light, give me your mercy! My Redeemer, redeem me, for I am yours; the one who has come forth from you. You are my mind; bring me forth! You are my treasure house; open for me! You are my fullness; take me to you! You are (my) repose; give me the perfect thing that cannot be grasped!

*Keene State Students May Be Expelled After Saturday Riots

(excerpts)

“We are mindful that Keene State students played a part in this behavior and we intend to hold those individuals accountable for their actions,” Huot wrote in an earlier statement Saturday. “We deplore the actions of those whose only purpose was to cause mayhem…We can expect that the promotion by individuals and organizations of Keene and the Pumpkin Festival as a destination for destructive and raucous behavior, will only increase. And we are certain that the negative behavior will continue if nothing changes.”

Keene’s police department was lampooned on both the Colbert Report and Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver (starts at 7:18) after citing the town’s annual Pumpkin Fest as one reason it needed a surplus $286,000 armored vehicle from the Pentagon.

How the “Syrian rebels” really feel

How The “Syrian Rebels” Really Feel About “Friendly” US Airstrikes

(excerpt)

More importantly, as Reuters reported, Dempsey said that the endgoal is “to recapture lost territory in eastern Syria”. Territory, which as we reported in July, amounts to 35% of Syria’s landmass and includes most of its oilfields. And sure enough, the territory would be preserved for the exclusive use of the “rebels”, or the group of Islamists from whose ranks none other than ISIS arose over the past year. And since the rebels couldn’t care one way or another, this is merely a way for the US to say that whatever Syrian territory is “liberated” from ISIS presence, it will be disposed of as the US sees fit, with the only decisions being whether to grant it to Qatar or Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime, things on the propaganda front are going form bad to worse. Recall the Nusra front – the extreme wing of the “rebels” that the US is allegedly supporting? Well as Haaretz just reported, “the al Qaida-linked Nusra Front on Saturday denounced U.S.-led air strikes on Syria, saying they amounted to a war against Islam and vowing to retaliate against Western and Arab countries that took part.”

*US Bombed ‘Empty Buildings’ in Airstrikes on ISIL in Syria

“15-20 days before the airstrikes, (ISIL) buildings were evacuated, and fighters then mixed in with the local population”.

*French President Hollande Says ‘ISIS Terror Caused by Global Warming’

(excerpts)

At the UN in New York, Hollande insistently claimed, even passionately claimed that global warming has driven millions of persons from their previously stable lives, making them more receptive to Islamic, or Crony Islamic terrorism. Hollande traced a direct link between global warming (now called “climate change”) and terrorism.

One estimate given by a French expert on global terrorism was that at its peak of power before 2005, al Qaeda had a “war chest” of 200 – 500 million US dollars, but the Islamic State, today, already has $2 to $3 billion in its own treasure chest. It can now buy more mercenary fighters.

This “surprise” is much less surprising than the fantastic claim, by Hollande at the UN, that “climate refugees” are swelling the ranks of terrorist movements, not only in the Middle East but also in Africa.

The revenues of the Islamic State are no surprise at all. Spy satellite surveillance of the Syria-Iraq-Turkey border region is supposedly unable to see ISIS oil tanker truck convoys shipping stolen oil from Syria into Turkey on a round-the-clock basis for at least the past three months, sold at prices as low as $33 – $40 a barrel. This oil and the road tanker trucks is supposedly “invisible” !

*The Controller’s Foot

(excerpt)

A few days ago I saw a headline: “The Impending Race War.” I have no idea what angle the article was coming from because I didn’t read it. ‘Watch what you consume’ has become my motto with regard to information, because the stuff piles up and affects me emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

No matter what the article says, whose agenda is the headline pumping anyway? We’re already being told who to be afraid of, who’s trying to take our scraps, who’s planning to behead us and what disease to watch out for next. Now we’re being told what war we are going to engage in, with our neighbor?

We do have the capacity to direct our own thinking. So, I’ll offer some thoughts about the ‘not impending race war’. We have a choice about this one. While we might not be able to stop them from going off and fighting the latest manufactured enemy, in search of resources, and total control, at Israel’s bidding… we can stop the heinous notion of fighting amongst ourselves.

Anti-war view of Scottish independence

September 18, 2014

Comedian Frankie Boyle gives his anti-war reasons for an independent Scotland

Uploaded by Stop the War Coalition

(partial transcript)

“Scotland would no longer have to invade places like Afghanistan for American interests. . . . I don’t support America’s wars. I don’t even think they are wars. They’re one-way traffic, mass-murder. There’s never been a time when a shepherd has beaten a helicopter.

You never switch on the news to see ‘A shock result in Afghanistan today when a missile was destroyed by a wedding.’ Because not only will America go into your country and kill all your people. But what’s worse I think is they’ll come back twenty years later and make a movie about how killing your people made their soldiers feel sad. Oh boo hoo hoo. Americans making a movie about what Vietnam did to the soldiers is like a serial killer telling you what stopping suddenly for hitchhikers did to his clutch.”
