Tackling the ET question: Project Camelot and Robbie Graham

“The Cult of Nick podcast” has been going for a few years now. It launched on Disinfo, in 2012. Back then it contained work taken from my archive. For a few years in the UK, I was fortunate enough to be paid to present a national radio show on the sort of topics that fascinate me: occultism, UFOs, ghosts, bigfoot, conspiracy theories.  The show was called “The Night Before” and ran on a UK station called “Kerrang Radio“. We made the international news after interviewing Edgar Mitchell, he announced UFOs were real and governments were covering it up. The interview itself is not my finest hour, his announcement came at the end of an hour long session where we mainly discussed him going to the moon. I keep shouting “wow, that’s amazing”. It’s my attempt to throttle the mainstream audience and remind them that this is a high caliber witness telling us all something incredible.… Read the rest

Exclusive interview with Jonathan Black

There will be few Disinfonauts who do not have a copy of “The Secret History of the World” by Jonathan Black, the pen name of Mark Booth. This week’s episode of The Cult Of Nick contains an interview with the elusive author.


Also this week, right at the end, there’s a sincere attempt to talk about “the meaning of life.” Arguably this has disappointing consequences.

Who is responsible for terrorism?

B66fsIMIUAI38fz

This picture shows, Ahmed Merabet, a Muslim Policeman defending free speech. He died a hero after being shot in the head by a terrorist. It is strangely hard for some people to understand that the man with the gun is the one responsible for the shooting[1]. Not society. Not some cartoons. Not Fox News. Not The Daily Mail. Not even Tony Blair or George Bush and their war in Iraq. Or a magic book from the middle ages. Or you. Or me. Not anyone else. Him. He’s responsible.

Who is responsible for terrorism? Terrorists.

It’s an obvious trick question. Perhaps I’m being mean, this trick question has stumped media pundits and opinionators for many years, but the correct answer is that simple. It just doesn’t make for as good a debate on Fox News and also happens to be diametrically opposed to the aims of people who want to control you by telling you what to do.Read the rest

Ian McFadyen on The UK Child Sex Abuse Inquiry

Ian McFadyen tweets here: https://twitter.com/IanMcFadyen1966

His story is detailed here: Cover-up that let the head of Nick Clegg’s prep school get away with abusing boys for decades

In this interview he talks about what happened to him and how he is now helping survivors as the UK prepares for a nationwide inquiry into child sexual abuse. An inquiry which has been prompted in part by allegations of a historic pedosadist ring operating at the highest levels of Government.

Please note: the first interview is not subject to copyright in any form. Please repost, YouTube, Souncloud, and distribute, in full, as you see fit.

EVIL

Who is trolling who?

Dehumanisation is often the starting point of cruelty. Nazis didn’t see Jews as human, that’s how they could throw them into ovens. Slavery in America worked along similar lines, people were treated as cattle because they were labelled “niggers,” a word used to denote someone who was not quite “one of us,” not quite a person. Religions do this kind of thing a lot, in Islam it’s “kuffar”, in Judaism it’s “goyim,” in Christianity it is “heathen.”

In England at the moment the word “troll” is being used by Her Majesty’s Government to do the same. Originally “trolling” referred to a fishing technique where you slowly drag a lure or baited hook from a moving boat. In the old world of forums people would be called out for trying to “troll” for a response to their posts. Now it has become detached from its original meaning and conflated with the trolls of Tolkienesque fantasy.… Read the rest

Cannabis can kill?

“In war, truth is the first casualty.”

- Aeschylus

As the world watches America make moves to legalise cannabis, a worrying trend is emerging in the UK where the war on drugs continues. Earlier this year Disinfo brought you the surprising news that the UK Government owned National Health Service had recorded the drug as a cause of death. Now the Daily Mail has published another curious report claiming further fatalities.

The UK’s Daily Mail reports:

It is possible to die as a direct result of smoking cannabis, new research shows.

German scientists have identified two people who died purely as a result of smoking the drug.

It was previously known that using marijuana could be fatal if it was used in conjunction with other drugs – such as by triggering heart conditions or by causing cancer.

[…]

Now, scientists at the University Hospital Düsseldorf in Germany have carried out the first full post mortem examinations on people who have died after using the drug.

Ragnarok begins, 22nd Feb 2014

Ragnarök by Doepler

The Norse pantheon’s Ragnarok begins on 22nd Feb 2014 and once more hilarity prevails in the UK’s popular press as another apocalyptic flag lands in our time period[1] but the world doesn’t come to an end. Like the Mayan prediction of an apocalypse in 2012 the source of the humour requires ignorance of the word’s meaning, revelation. Perhaps coincidentally numerous incredible facts about the establishment are currently being revealed routinely, thanks to the technology of our age. Either way the resulting irony is that, as apocalypse after apocalypse comes through our internet connections[2], some continue to chuckle at the absurd idea our world will end forever[3].

The concept of such an ending is relatively new[4]. When it came to the motion of time the evidence is most belief systems from our distant past understood our reality to be locked into a cyclical, spiral-like movement. Like the seasons, periods of time would come, go, and then return. In a modern context the observable orbit of our planet, in its tight spiral around the sun, added to our understanding of the relativity of time, does tend to suggest this view might have merit[5].… Read the rest
