What the Pentagon Video SHOULD Have Shown

Short and sweet today. Check out this link. Don'cha think the COINTELPRO guys should have hired this bunch to doctor up their "new" video footage? I would have found this a lot more convincing!

The Cannes Nomination for Best COINTELPRO Coincidence

goes to (drum roll) . . . . . KARL ROVE!!

It's a proud day for the Signs of the Times Team producer of the Pentagon Strike Flash Video. This ground-breaking flash short, which has been seen by over 500 MILLION people world-wide has been entered in the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and will receive very influential screening time. Think Charlie Sheen will have something to say after this??

Here's the listing. (Make sure the display is set to 50 per page.)

But wait!

After four looong years of Freedom of Information Act challenges and countless refusals to release security camera footage of the Pentagon attack (national security, didn'cha know?), our bud Karl suddenly decides that everything's okey-dokey now. We're gonna get to see the film that explains it all. We'd get all twittered about it, except that there's only a few extra frames on each end of the same joke footage that's been available on the 'net for the last four years. There are still missing frames which would have shown the "plane" clearly, and the time stamps are STILL wrong. You'd think they'd have done a better doctoring job with this much time to work on it! And where, oh where Karl, is all the footage from the other (well-documented) camera positions?? Judicial Watch is crowing about getting it all released, but we already knew they were a NeoCon Front.

But hey, you be the judge:

The Pentagon Strike Flash

The U.S. Gov's version

Oh NO, Canada!

Lest we get to comfy in our northern perspective.

Wake up Canada, Stephan Harper is leading us down the same disasterous path Tony Blair took Britain. Maybe an American woman can tell us something about the policies we are pursuing.

Red Pill Press' Ponerology: The Science of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes is a book which will help explain how we are being bamboozled.

Oh No, Canada!

By Cindy Sheehan
t r u t h o u t Perspective

Saturday 13 May 2006

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The day that the apparently reformed warmonger President Dwight D. Eisenhower envisioned decades ago has finally come. It is time for governments to get out of our way.

I have had a chance since Camp Casey in August to travel the world. I have had the honor of meeting hundreds of fellow souls who are just plain sick and tired of the way BushCo is cavorting around the world and comporting themselves as fledgling 3rd Reich tyrants (Hitler didn't need warrants either) who are threatening the way of life of every person who inhabits our world. I was only just in Canada and got to meet many of our brothers and sisters north of the border.

From Italy to Canada to Great Britain and everywhere in between, our brothers and sisters who live in these nations are extremely tired of their governments who support BushCo in their war crimes and crimes against humanity. Prime Minister Berlusconi of Italy recently paid the price for his support of BushCo's policies by being uninvited back to his position. I knew he was going to be defeated by just traveling around Italy and hearing and feeling the frustration and the fear for their democracy, which Berlusconi's neo-Fascist rule was destroying.

By many accounts, Stephen Harper was put in place as leader of Canada by the collapse of weak coalitions and scandals that led to this man now leading a minority government there. He is wildly unpopular from coast to coast up north, and there is a growing sense of unease about his emulation of a very unpopular person in the USA but even more in Canada: George Bush.

Canadians have to be the healthiest looking and most polite citizenry that I have encountered in my travels. The British people that I have met are very polite but have nowhere near the graciousness of Canadians. Canadians are truly civil, and they mean it. Canadians have been proud of their country's role of world peacekeeper and as the beacon of peace and hope and refuge for us Americans who feel that our country's aggressive militarism endangers us and harms our reputations and souls. Now Canadians need to wake up to the fact that their new minority, disliked government is leading them down this same slippery slope to the fascistic militarism of their immediate neighbors to the south.

The first day that I was in Canada, their defense minister, Gordon O'Connor, signed the extension of the NORAD Treaty with the Bush Regime without any debate or votes in Parliament. The citizenry was outraged in their courteous way. Not so coincidentally, Gordy just so happens to be a former defense industry lobbyist who has been using his position to promote the "Canada First" position which ultimately removes Canada, once and for all, from its world-peacekeeping role. With Canada's support of the Haitian government's overthrow and support of BushCo's travesty in Afghanistan, Canada was already heading down this path of destruction.

Canadians are distressed that defense spending rose by 5.3 billions of dollars (roughly what the US spends for 2 weeks in Iraq) while the preschool budget is being cut and college tuition is rising. This increase in military spending coincidentally correlates with a push to recruit thousands more soldiers who are still being told by the Canadian recruiters that their country only does peacekeeping missions. This manipulation of facts and the exploitation of fear and false patriotism is being fueled by the Canadian media, who seem to be turning, for the most part, into propaganda tools of their government a la our right-wing 4th estate.

However, with Canadian soldiers dying in combat, the citizens of the country are starting to question their Bush clone of a prime minister and his Bush-style cabinet. Recently, the PM said that if he sends troops into combat, he expects the people of the country to support them; which really only means that he expects the people to support him and his loose interpretation of the facts. Also, Bush One and Two style (with a brief Clinton break), the Canadian media is now banned from showing images of the flag-draped coffins: allegedly to not cause the families any more pain. But, as the mother of a soldier who came home that way, trust me, it causes far more pain to have your child KIA in a pointless war then it does to see the military honor guard treating our children with the care and respect not afforded to them by their own misleaders.

The recent polls in Canada show that the people there are starting to wake up by the truckloads with support for their administration's support of BushCo's war slipping 14 percentage points in two months! Canadians are seeing that the war in Afghanistan is not righteous and that when Canada sends troops there, it frees American troops to be illegally and immorally deployed to Iraq. Canada needs a Cindy Sheehan to go to the PM's residence and demand to know what noble cause her child died for, or is still fighting for.

Even more of a struggle right now to Canadian peace coalitions, besides Canada's seeming slumber, is that the government won't support war resisters who flee the American military because they don't want to go over to Iraq and kill innocent people or die for the war profiteers. So far, two soldiers have been denied asylum. I was told by members of a few of their political parties that the asylum is being denied for two reasons: first of all, because our soldiers are "volunteers" now and, secondly, because if our kids refuse to go to Iraq and go to prison instead, our prisons aren't that bad.

Well, like I have said and written about before, if our kids volunteered, then they should be free to "un-volunteer" if the mission of the organization changes. I have belonged to several volunteer organizations and when I disagree, or when I just feel like it, I leave; and I am not threatened with prison, or execution, which is an option for our children in times of war.

Most of our kids did not volunteer to go to Iraq to guard special contractors or kill innocent people to cushion the retirement of the CEO of Exxon. And - newsflash - our recruiters are still lying to our young people, telling them that if they enlist they won't have to go to Iraq and other despicable lies. When the recruit signs on the dotted line, the contract becomes binding only on him/her; those kinds of unilateral contracts are not even legal.

Our young soldiers, if they are refugees fleeing an organization that does not reflect their values, should not have to go to prison, no matter what the conditions are. With Amnesty International saying that violations are rampant in "enemy" combatant detention centers, then why should Canada think that our soldiers are any better off in a place that they should not be in the first place.

Please, dear Canada, wake up before it is too late and you wake up in a country that you don't even know anymore. We here in America fell into an exhausted sleep of denial after Vietnam, and we are reaping what was silently and deviously sown by the neo-cons who have been working for an overthrow of our government for over 30 years. If we didn't learn the lessons of Vietnam, we will never surely forget the lessons we learned at the feet of BushCo that have cost so many so much.

It's okay to copy our baseball and the huge hearts of the American people who never wanted to picture the country that we have become. But don't copy or let your government be willing partners in crime with our public enemy number one: BushCo.

A Canadian minister was being grilled by their press after a press conference that I conducted with the Canadian War Resister's League, and finally in frustration he blurted out: "We're not going to allow an American woman (me) to dictate our policies." And you know what, he's right, but with support rapidly dwindling for both wars (with the Iraq war never being popular with the people of Canada) and with support for Canada allowing asylum to our young men and women of conscience, it's time for their government to listen to its people. It's also time for our government to listen to us.

George and Steve and Tony and the rest of you warmongers: Get out of our way - we the people want peace. We will have it.

Cindy Sheehan is a co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace and the mother of Casey Sheehan, who was killed in Iraq.

Cindy Sheehan New Book: Dear President Bush

by David Swanson
May 11, 2006

Cindy Sheehan's interviews, essays, and speeches get better with each passing month, as her pain continues, her passion and insight grow, and the war that killed her son goes on - as the president who killed her son goes on being president. Cindy's latest book, "Deardent Bush," is the best of the three books by or about Cindy Sheehan that I've read.

"Not One More Mother's Child" was Cindy's first collection of essays. It's a longer book, including her writings from November 2004 to September 2005, along with some beautiful photographs and forwards by John Conyers, Thom Hartmann, and Jodie Evans. "The Vigil: 26 Days in Crawford, Texas" is a collection of newspaper reports on Camp Casey from the Lone Star Iconoclast, with a forward by Sheehan. These are both excellent books. One contains much of Cindy's brilliant and moving voice. The other comes close to setting the scene of what it was like to be in that place in Crawford last summer surrounded by so much emotion and so much hope.

Cindy's new book contains material from September 2005 through January 2006, plus a note from the editor, an introduction by Howard Zinn, and an excellent forward by Hart Viges, a veteran of the war on Iraq and a conscientious objector.

"I don't know," Viges writes, "how many innocents I killed with my mortar rounds. I have my imagination to pick at my brain for that one. But I clearly remember the call-out over the radio saying, 'Green light on all taxi cabs. The enemy is using them for transportation.'

"One of our snipers called back on the radio saying 'Excuse me, but did I hear that order correctly? Green light on all taxi cabs?'

"'Roger that, soldier. You'd better start buckling up.'"

Viges was so disturbed by what he did that he refused to continue. But he found a way to go on with his life, working for peace. He found that way through the strength created at Camp Casey.

The first and best section of Cindy's new book is a lengthy interview she did with Greg Ruggiero last September, in which Cindy speaks brilliantly off the cuff, which is what she is probably best at. What rings through her remarks is not just the telling of her personal story (there's relatively little of that here), but the way in which her historical and political analysis is inflamed by her personal experience.

Amazingly - if you know and love Cindy - it takes 32 pages before she first curses. She does so when asked "What did you want to say to President Bush when you were camped outside his place in Crawford, Texas?"

Her reply begins: "Well, of course the first thing I wanted to ask was: 'What noble cause did Casey die for? Was it freedom and democracy?' Bullshit. He died for oil. He died to make Bush's friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East...." She concludes by calling for impeachment.

When Cindy said that last September, it had an air of radicalism about it. Many people still liked to talk about the war as a mistake or a miscalculation and to assume that in some sense the war had really been started for democracy, even thought that rationale had been produced after the original selling points of WMD and ties to 9-11 had failed and the war was well underway. (Imagine, though, if military recruits had to sign papers promising to defend the United States or to attack other countries if killing no more than a few hundred thousand people might possibly result in a democracy. What size would the US Army be?)

But Cindy didn't just renounce the latest lie or say her son had died for lies, she pointed to what had really motivated Bush, Cheney, their associates, and the Project for a New American Century. She even went so far as to say the word oil, which has always been the most obvious Big Truth and therefore has elicited the fiercest condemnation in defense of the Big Lie.

Eight months later, Cindy's remarks don't sound very radical. They sound pretty much in line with those of the 65 percent of Americans who disapprove of Bush's performance.

The two essays that Cindy has included on the failures of Democrats and, in particular, Hillary Clinton, have become only more relevant. Clinton this week announced a fundraiser for herself being hosted by Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News, and praised George W. Bush to the media. A majority of Democrats have now voted for sanctions that mark the first step toward launching a war on Iran. Some of them should read this book. Maybe you should send your Congress Member a copy.

My favorite article, though, is Cindy's letter to Bush's Mama, Barbara Bush, in which she writes: "On March 18, 2003, a little over a year before my dear, sweet Casey was killed by your son's policies, you appeared on Good Morning America and said the following: 'Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?'

"Now I have something to tell you, Barbara. I didn't want to hear about deaths or body bags either. On April 4, 2004, three Army officers came to my house to tell me that Casey had been killed in Iraq. I fell on the floor screaming and begging the cruel Angel of Death to take me too. But the Angel of Death that took my son is your son."

Every day there are new mothers, Iraqi and American, facing that angel of death. And yet "journalists" and the Republican National Committee's talking points tell us that impeachment proceedings would be traumatic. I guess it all depends on your definition of "trauma."

Is Bush Adopting Hitler's Approach to Children and Education?

by Judy Aron

I have heard it said that once you bring the name of Hitler into an argument that you have lost the argument. The notion is that his regime was so horrible and so extreme, that one could never make an accurate comparison. I am sorry, but I disagree with that theory. I do believe that those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. Hitler’s government serves us well as an example of how not to do things. Bad repressive government is always bad repressive government, no matter who is at the helm.

Coming from a family comprised of some Holocaust survivors, I have heard repeatedly in my life what warning signs to look for and how easily people can be propagandized, as well as how easily government can be taken over and people can be suppressed.

That being said, some of the laws coming out of Congress and our States are getting pretty scary. Some have evolved over the course of many administrations, some come as a result of legislators who are really clueless, and others come from a purposeful agenda. Sometimes that agenda may come from corporate America, as evidenced by heavy campaign financing and lobbying of their interests. I am not talking about any kind of conspiracy to enslave us all, but perhaps it is time for our legislators to re-read our Constitution and stop relying on the judiciary to tell them when something is wrong, unethical, or unconstitutional. Unfortunately, people are asleep enough and busy dealing with their own problems that they don’t have time to see what’s going on, or even check up on the people they voted for, if they voted at all.

It is necessary to recognize that there are very real socialist and fascist factions working in our government, and they can take a miserable idea and make it look like a really good one. It’s easy enough to build a socialist infrastructure if you lay the groundwork under the guise of helping those in need. After all, programs designed to help the sick and needy could benefit us all, right? Propaganda done well can push any agenda, especially if there is money behind it. Taking a look at even a few things like eminent domain, education, immigration, surveillance, and censorship, and a picture begins to unfold that is not very pretty, and it certainly doesn’t come close to what our founding fathers intended.

Just examining education and its relation to healthcare, we ought to be very mindful of the path we are traveling in this country. As we speak, legislatures around the country are considering legislation

1. that establishes health center and clinics in our schools

2. that deals with “early intervention” of mental health issues of children – utilizing screening programs for all

3. that deals with “school readiness” and universal pre-school, which is government run/funded education and institutionalization of 3 and 4 year olds

4. that places more psychologists, therapists and other “psych” professionals in our schools

5. that removes certain authority and rights of parents

6. that places more government mandates on education

On top of this, the federal government is exercising the power of the purse to mandate how education should be run overall.

Let’s take a look at some examples based on a paper describing the Third Reich

”Even during the war, there was so much unrest and so many appeals that in 1941, Hitler intervened with an edict that prohibited parents from bringing charges against hospitals and asylums.”

Are we not seeing “middle of the night legislation” inserted to protect pharmaceutical companies and institutions from lawsuits for autism”, etc? Parents are being forced to medicate their kids in some cases, and then they can’t turn around and do anything when the drugs damage their child.

”Nazi bioscience and racialism were woven into all aspects of the social, health, and educational policies.”

Are we not seeing states like Illinois instituting Social/Emotional Learning Standards for the purpose of having children be "school ready"? Who decides these Social/Emotional Learning Standards? What studies are they based on? Is anyone interested in the conflict of interest and questionable ethics of these studies, some of which were funded by pharmaceutical companies?

In 1934, 181 Genetic Health courts and appellate Genetic Health Courts were created for the sole purpose of enforcing Nazi health laws and decrees (Peukert, 1987). These courts were attached to local civil courts and presided over by two physicians and a lawyer. All physicians were required to register every case of genetic pathology with the courts and failure to do so was punishable. The reports were filed in specially created data banks (Burleigh, 1994). Public health officials, teachers, and social workers were also required to report children suspected of having a disability or emotional problem. The search for people with hereditary illnesses was relentless; every large institution became a regional catchment area and sent officials to the homes of every person reported to have a hereditary illness (Burleigh, 1994). “

Does the program/mandate of Child Find fit this description? The inter-agency networking of government entities per the New Freedom Commission, and No Child Left Behind legislation offers up some very unsavory comparisons here. Schools are implementing screening tools like Wested, and TeenScreen and a host of other programs to identify kids with problems.. even if they don’t really have one. And no one seems to take notice that these programs were funded in part by the pharmaceutical industry in order to get more customers and sell more medication. Additionally, databases are being set up to keep track of information. Parents are being coerced into putting their children into treatment. Some lose custody and their children become wards of the state.

“Public health officials, responsible for enforcing the institutionalization of children with disabilities, persuaded dubious parents with promises that their children would receive the most advanced and expert therapy on open wards (Heiniansberg and Schmidt, 1993).

Parents who refused to put their children into institutions were accused by these same officials of neglecting and depriving their children of needed treatment. Persistent refusal often resulted in threats; parents were told that if they did not institutionalize their children they would lose their guardianship rights (Burleigh, 1994). Single mothers who refused to part with their children found themselves assigned to contractual labor, which in the end, forced them to surrender their children (Freidlander, 1994).”

Parental rights and guardianship have been removed from many parents by the courts in this country for similar charges. IDEA legislation allows the school districts and State departments of Children and Family Services to coerce parents into treating children, despite clauses regarding parental consent. In this country a parent does not necessarily have the last word, and they are usually dragged through court in “due process hearings” with little financial resources behind them to sustain them through relentless charges. Of course school districts and state agencies have enormous financial resources, your tax dollar, at their disposal to pay for ongoing legal fees. Parents will most likely succumb to school and DCF demands and hope for the best for their child. Unfortunately that doesn’t always happen and children end up drugged, institutionalized, or both. We are constantly reminded that the “experts” know best.

”Under the Nazis schools were a primary target for control and their administration was placed in the hands of the party faithful. By 1938, the German school system was brought under the total control of the central government and removed from the jurisdiction of the individual states or Lander (Huebner, 1962). “

One cannot ignore No Child Left Behind and the pervasiveness of federal mandates on state and local schools. We may say that we still have states rights in this country, but what state is willing to give up the hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Title 1 money and not institute the federal mandates? There is no freedom here for states as long as they are being coerced and bribed to put federal mandates in place. Now states are so sucked into the flow of money that they cannot give it up even if they wanted to without an extreme cut in their operations. They have become slaves to the federal government.

”Comprehensive schools that included classes for children with learning problems were closed, parent-teacher associations were made powerless, corporal punishment was reintroduced and progressive teaching methods were discouraged. Early childhood and kindergarten systems were also brought under government control and church and privately sponsored kindergartens were banned. The Froebel Association which pioneered early childhood education in Germany was forced to disband (Tietze, Rossback and Ufemann, 1989). It was a common sight to see three year olds marching and waving flags in a military parade. “

Universal preschool and efforts to have state sponsored, taxpayer funded, public education for 3 and 4 year olds, in addition to state funded birth to three programs, are now being pushed nationally. You might be interested as to what is included in the curriculum planned for these kids. It isn’t just crayon drawings and how to hold a scissor. While we may not be banning church and privately sponsored programs, we will be mandating that they possess certain credentials through the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The fact that the state is feeding, and in some instances clothing and caring for these kids the majority of the day, is of concern. Where is parental control and responsibility? Why is the state becoming so involved in taking care of our young? Have we really embraced outsourcing our parenting to the government?

Oh yeah, maybe they are unfounded comparisons and way too extreme, or maybe they aren’t, but lets check the roadmap and see where we are headed. Are legislators looking to pass laws based on their campaign contributions or because of ideology, or because of a vision of how things should work? Are we passing laws to control people, or help people? Perhaps we are passing laws to control people under the guise of helping them. Should we be passing these kinds of laws at all? When is government “help” voluntarily received and when is it forced upon us? Should we allow laws that will dictate mental screening, recording and even perhaps micro-chipping of our population? How does that measure up to what our founders intended in the name of freedom?
You decide.

Personal Interlude: Funky Eyes

Got relief from a bit of a scare this week.

About two weeks ago, I found myself squeezing my eyes really hard after working on the computer all day (never had a job that needed so much computer time before). I wasn't getting headaches or anything, but they felt funny. I'm already using #1 reading glasses, so I thought maybe as they are Costco off-the-shelf-cheap, they were part of the problem. Note to self: get checkup and maybe something better quality. At some point . . .

For jollies, I tried covering each eye, just to see if there was a difference in vision. I'd seen my husband doing this now and again, before he finally gave in and got reading glasses. The left was fine. The right? Well the right had this darker oval spot, dead centre, and covering half my field of vision. It was like having a tawny, blurry sunglass lens inside the eyeball. I could see objects through it pretty well, but not print. Tres creepy, as with both eyes open I would never notice! :<(

Phoned the eye guy immediately, who couldn't see me for another week.

When I finally got there, he mention fun things like vitreous detachment which is fairly common in my age bracket and up, which could lead to retinal detachment. Both would call for laser surgery (gaaaaah!!!).

Strangely, I didn't report any of the symptions of vitreous detachment, such as floaters, spaghetti-like stringies in your vision, or light flashes. The eye guy couldn't see any of the structures that match that condition either, and I wouldn't let him do a dilation, as I had to go back to work. I left with the injunction that if it got any worse, I was call his office and take myself immediately to an emergency room. This is where you can scare yourself really good with internet research, because from vitreous detatchment I moved on to macular degeneration and other true horrors. Vision is a lot more fragile than we think.

Off today to a specialist who actually sees people on Saturday. The specialist really knew his stuff, with surgical qualifications up the wazoo. Dilation drops in, he checked all around with the different hi-tech penlights, some of which used different frequencies, as I saw them changing color. Finally he says that he doesn't think it's a structural failure sort of thing, but that I have had some fluid (?) leak in front of the retina. This condition apparently tends to correct itself as the fluid is reabsorbed. I had thought the boundries of the fuzzy area were getting smaller and more defined, but was afraid it was wishful thinking. He still wants so send me to the eye clinic at one of the local hospitals for some sort of photograph which will give a detailed image of exactly what is going on.

Goddess bless the health care system here. The exam I had today would have been several hundred dollars, and who know how much the next one would have been. I don't know how people manage in the States. Mostly I guess they don't.

I'm to call Monday for the appt time (his office makes it). I'll post again with the results. The dilation process is interesting. I didn't really perceive much difference in the amount of light I was taking in. I could still read, though it took a little effort. But looking in the mirror it was, whoa mama, Borg Queen time! Nobody's pupils should be that big.

Speaking of Borg Queens, the new book from Red Pill Press called Political Ponerology is a must read. It describes how such systems can arise and how they sustain themselves. Instead of calling it the Hive, we call it Nazi Germany, or Soviet Union, and currently, the US. If you want to make some sense out of the "senseless" decisions you see being made around you. There's logic there but it's pathocrat logic, not the logic of normal people. I totally recommend it.

Godlikeproductions is Psy-Ops

This report was apparently written in 2004. Godlikeproductions has since "changed hands." That is, the owners/operators apparently responded to the publication of this information by "going undercover." Some of the links may have been scrubbed. But, at the time we obtained this, all of the links were valid and all of the information is accurate.

Remember the "Aussie Bloke hoax" that was running wild in the Spring of 2004? It all began on godlikeproductions. And so, we decided to take a closer look.

The first thing we found was that the Whois information regarding is as follows:
Registrant: Belisha, Elaine (GODLIKEPRODUCTIONS-DOM)

The domain was registered on July 25, 2000.

Nothing is terribly interesting about that, now is there? But we continued to search. We find Elaine on a google search, FILER'S FILES, cached, since the page is no longer available:

Crystal Reports are tricky to load. I made mine in visual interdev and they work. I have the source code at the office though. I don't have it on my home computer (or interdev). It involves creating two active-x server objects: 1) a report object that points to the report, and 2) a viewer object that points to the report object. I'll post the code monday, if you can wait that long.

There are other computer tech discussion entries under Elaine's name, all of which suggest that Elaine is a very computer savvy lady.

Then, we find Elaine on Kent Steadman's CyberSpaceOrbit and on RumorMills in a very unflattering light:
Posted By: Rayelan Date: Sunday, 18 April 2004, 5:05 p.m.
I wonder how many people have actually met Oswald LeWinter??? He's the poster on Godlike who started all of this... of course he doens't even use his real name... he hides behind 100s of aliases... it must be real fun for him to do this. I wonder how many people realize they have fallen for disinformation coming from an old CIA/Mossad opertive... one of the best... so you shouldn't kick yourself too hard if you swallowed his crap line hook line and sinker!
but again... let's look at the person they assigned to "take down" Rayelan and Rumor Mill News... the sent the best!
Having been married to the #3 man in the CIA... I still have a few strings I can pull to get information. I called one of these "strings" to inquire about whose payroll Oswald is on. I was told that he is hated by today's CIA and if he ever comes back to this country he will end up in prison or worse. I was told that he is on the Mossad payroll. ON THE MOSSAD PAYROLL!! WOW!!!! THAT IN ITSELF IS AN EYE-OPENER -- Think about it... THE MOSSAD IS TRYING TO SHUT DOWN RMN. Why??? Are we getting too close to their involvement in 9.11 - OKC -- Waco -- and their blackmail of George W. Bush... with the threat of biological or nuclear attack on a US city! (article being written on this)
Even if the above impassioned rant is a bit incoherent, the reference to MOSSAD will become more interesting as we go along.

All in all, the pickings on Elaine Belisha were pretty slim! I was beginning to think that the woman didn't even exist before the UFO report on September 13, 1998. However, we are resourceful if nothing else. We found Elaine here: Guestbook of Michelle Guerin where she filled in the form with the following information:
Email:Elaine Belisha
How I found your page: mail
Comments about the web site: Great page, Michelle! LOVE it
What can we deduce from this tiny bit of information?

Well, first of all we note that Elaine must be a friend of Michelle Guerin because she says she was informed about the creation of the page, probably by Michelle herself. Her personal comment also seems to confirm this.

But what is even more interesting is that Elaine gives a website address:

A whois search on gives the following result:
Registrant: Keyword Traffic
PMB # 483
1733 H Street, Suite 330 Blaine, WA 98230-5106 US
800 633 8435x05
The domain was registered on July 31, 2003.

When we try to go to, we are redirected to a sort of "auction" page which tells us that we arrived at that page because "You searched the web for Home Theater Speakers."

Well, we didn't exactly do that. So we decided to search google for "home theater speakers." For at least the first four pages of search returns, there was no appearance of ""

BUT, we notice a little image in the upper corner of a funny little blue guy and the word "TopDotz" (tm)

We search for whois on topdotz and find:
Registrant: Keyword Traffic
PMB # 483
1733 H Street, Suite 330 Blaine, WA 98230-5106 US
800 633 8435x05
Domain Name: TOPDOTZ.COM
The domain was registered on September 22, 2000.

I want to mention, at this point, that there are no names of real people on the "Keyword Traffic" domain registrations.

Nevertheless, we visit and discover that it is a search engine displaying a logo that says: DotzUp!

Well, by now, we can't resist and we go and search whois for dotzup.
Domain Name: DOTZUP.COM
Administrative Contact: Master, Web
4235 S. Cheney-Spokane Rd STE 10 Spokane, WA 99224-9661 US
1 509 443 1948
The domain was registered on August 11, 2000
Again, there are no names.

So, we want to know if there is any connection between the new owners of and Elaine Belisha and we proceed. Leaving DotzUp, we go back and continue searching for "" we find a curious website that says:
Here is the INFOPAK.... NOTE: The compilation of this infopak is due in large part to the efforts of many others, far too many to mention here, with the exception of Wizdomme, SteelBtrfl, and DsSiteMstr to whom is owed many thanks for their efforts on behalf of the BDSM community. A request can be sent to SteelBtrfl to be placed on her mailing list.
Here the reader will find the milieu in which Elaine Belisha seems to live and thrive. The website has such entertaining sections as:
Submissives [...]
Dominants [...]
A LustSlave's Page
Sublime: Slavery, Sluts, Submission
Leather on Q
Boston Dungeon Society
Bound For Pleasure BBS
Tantric Sexuality:
The Gorean Pleasure Slave
Silk & Steel SLAVEPENS
About half way down, we find Elaine Belisha's personal website - - listed as "INDIVIDUAL WEBSITES" of those who are associated with this group of extremely strange individuals.

This is getting interesting.

Well, we wondered if Elaine's old website - now owned by Network Traffic - was in the web archive. Sure enough! The old! On this interesting page we read the following:
Welcome! My job titles include MOM, Goddess, alien abductee and Webmaster. Unfortunately, I don't get paid for doing any of these things. I have an admirable collection of unpublished science fiction novels, with rejection slips included. I am fond of bad puns and dirty jokes. I love receiving e-mail on any subject, especially alien abduction experiences (and skeptics & debunkers are welcome, too). I am especially interested in the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk Project.
The next items are about her children one of whom we already met in the UFO sighting report:
This is my oldest daughter, Marilyn. She's primarily interested in the internet, and spends hours on it daily. She loves role playing games and something called Magic, The Gathering. She's fourteen years old. At school she is in the gifted program but she always gets confused about "push" or "pull" signs when opening doors. Visit marilyn's Web page....oooooo scary....Marilyn's Darkness For some cool poetry by Allen, Marilyn's bud, Visit Allen's Page of Various Useless Stuff
It seems that the above was written about the time of the UFO sighting if her daughter was 14 at the time of writing. Elaine has another daughter about whom she writes:
This is my youngest daughter, Sara. She is fond of dominating cats into submission. She loves them and pets them and squeezes them to death. Her goldfish committed suicide by leaping out of the aquarium into a cup of coffee. She's really not sadistic, just er... eccentric.
Charming family, eh? Elaine's a veritable June Cleaver, now isn't she? B & D being passed on to the children...

Well, it gets better. We find oldest daughter Marilyn keeps an online journal with such beguilingly innocent entries as:
You seek Magick! First of All I LOVE alien SEX FIEND!
I havnt been fucked like that since grade school.
If you check her model portfolio, you will find cute bondage photos. Wonder where she learned all that? If you check her links page, you will find that she links to mama's site: godlikeproductions, among others listed as "friends." Then, if you search google groups for "ebelisha" you will find a few posts on the newsgroups from daughter Marilyn:
From: ~Marilyn (
Subject: Re: New Satanic Site!!!!
Newsgroups: alt.satanism, alt.individualism, talk.religion.misc, alt.atheist, alt.magick
Date: 1997/08/13 "!"
Check out ~Marilyn's Darkness~
Tis a great page! Meet satan, and Dark poetry! Also,theres a poem of the week contest. ~Marilyn
Obviously, Marilyn was only 13 years old when she was posting the above on the 13th day of August - which fact obviously entertained her as we can see by virtue of the exclamation point put next to the date.

One can also find "ebelisha" at the godlikeproductions FAQ which says:
Moderators help keep Godlike Productions ufpdated with the most current news. If you have a question about being a moderator, you should direct it to
Getting back to - the one listed by Elaine Belisha as her home page - we finally find it HERE in the web archive. The address is given as: 5926 BUFORD HIGHWAY, ATLANTA, GEORGIA

Okay. What to do next? Well, check the Georgia corporation listings.

Under the business name: HIFI Exchange we find:
990 HAMMOND DR. STE. 990 ATLANTA , GA 30328
Date of last annual registration 03/10/1999 Dissolution 11/09/2002
So, it looks like the Belisha's sold their business and their domain name to the Network Traffic folks. Remember that Keyword Traffic only registered the domain name on July 31, 2003. No big deal, right? Well, perhaps, or perhaps not.

As it happened, Haim Belisha popped up on a second run at the Georgia Corporation site:
Date of last annual registration 05/09/2001 05/18/2002
Note here: We find Jeffrey Bashuk or Jeffrey Alan Bashuk as registered agent for over 50 different corporations on the Georgia Secretary of State site ranging from THE DECATUR CHURCH OF RELIGIOUS SCIENCE, INC. to NORTHLAKE ALLIANCE OF GAYS/LESBIANS & STRAIGHTS, INC. The obvious reason for this is that Mr. Bashuk must be in the business of acting as a Registered Agent. This, however, may be more interesting than we initially suppose.

Moving along: another interesting item that popped up was that when doing the domain search on another similar domain popped up: HOMEHIFIEXCHANGE.COM So naturally, we decided to just take a peek. It was a bit of a surprise to discover that this company was also domiciled in ATLANTA, GA! Well, who'da thunk it? What a coincidence! Here is the whois data:
Organization:,, LLC,
Brad Lloyd, 6205 Barfield Rd., Suite 125, Atlanta, GA 30328,
Date of last annual registration August 18, 1999
Is there anything interesting about this ", LLC?"
Doing a Georgia corporation search on the company, we find:
Date of last annual registration 11/03/1999
There are no officers listed, but we do note the registered agent: Larry Tedesco. We note that the contact listed on the domain registration is a Brad Lloyd. So, while we are on the Georgia Corporation website, we do a search for Brad Lloyd, finding:
Date of last annual registration 03/08/1999 and dissolved on 11/09/2002
Date of last annual registration 03/08/1999 and dissolved or revoked on 11/09/2002
Again we notice that there are no officers listed.

Okay. What next? A corporation search on Larry Tedesco which brings up:
Date of last annual registration 03/10/2004 and still active as of 06/14/2003
Date of last annual registration 06/14/2003 , still active as of 03/10/2004
Date of last annual registration 06/14/2003 and still active as of 03/10/2004
Date of last annual registration 03/06/1997 Dissolved or revoked: 07/05/1999
Date of last annual registration 01/21/2004
Mr. Tedesco is almost as busy as Jeffrey Bashuk.

The next item that popped up was an article about Larry Tedesco in the Atlanta Business Chronicle:
EXCLUSIVE REPORTS From the April 26, 2002 print edition
Auction site bidding on expansion

by Mary Jane Credeur Staff Writer

The organizers behind Inc., which operates an online golf club auction site, are hoping to duplicate their specialty auction concept for musical instruments and photography equipment.

Atlanta-based recently raised another $1.5 million round from previous investors to cover the cost of launching and, later this year,

"We want to be a specialty shop for equipment that you can't find in just any old run-of-the-mill store," said CEO Larry Tedesco.

The 6-year-old company has brought in roughly $4 million in investments over its lifetime, much of which came from Arkansas investment bank Stephens Inc., which is owned by the family of PGA legend and former Augusta National Chairman Jack Stephens.

With sales last year topping $9 million, Tedesco believes it's time to expand the profitable auction site to include other high-end goods. expects to pull in revenues of $2.5 million on projected sales of $15 million this year, Tedesco said. [...]

Since the site went live six years ago with only a few dozen users, the company has attracted 200,000 regular users and has gained the backing of the PGA of America and Golf Magazine. The company also began publishing a "blue book" reference guide of used golf club values based on the nearly 100,000 golf equipment transactions it handles each year.
We finally find Larry together with Brad on a yahoo biz site:
Exchange Blvd, Inc
Company Profile
Exchange Blvd provides item-specific online auction marketplaces. Sites include and (musical instruments).
Coming back to Haim Belisha, undoubtedly the husband of Elaine Belisha, another curious item popped up:
Leslie Hore-Belisha was born in Devonport in 1893. Educated at Clifton College and Oxford University he served as a major in the British Army during the First World War.

Hore-Belisha, a member of the Liberal Party, worked as a journalist and lawyer before entering the House of Commons for Devonport in 1923. [...]

In 1937 Neville Chamberlain appointed Hore-Belisha as Secretary of State for War. This was a controversial decision as the former holder of the post, Alfred Duff Cooper, was popular with the British armed forces. [...]

Hore-Belisha upset the Army Council by replacing three senior members with younger and more flexible men. He also upset Neville Chamberlain by suggesting the introduction of military conscription during his negotiations with Adolf Hitler in 1938. His attempts to persuade Chamberlain to rapidly increase spending on the armed forces was also unsuccessful.

In the House of Commons the Conservative Party MP Archibald Ramsay was the main critic of having Jews in the government. In 1938 he began a campaign to have Hore-Belisha sacked as Secretary of War. In one speech on 27th April he warned that Hore-Belisha "will lead us to war with our blood-brothers of the Nordic race in order to make way for a Bolshevised Europe." [...]

Neville Chamberlain eventually decided to remove Hore-Belisha as Secretary of State for War and appoint him as Minister of Information. Lord Halifax objected, claiming that it was "inappropriate to have a Jew in charge of publicity." In January 1940 Hore-Belisha was sacked as Secretary of State for War.

In 1945 Winston Churchill appointed Hore-Belisha as Minister of National Insurance. However, he lost office when the Labour Party won the 1945 General Election. Leslie Hore-Belisha, who lost his seat in the election, died in 1957.
One wonders, of course, if the above Leslie Hore-Belisha was related in any way to Haim Belisha?

In any event, getting back to Elaine's friend, Michelle Guerin we find that on her website, she has posted a story about her life as a "Montaukee." We also find an article written by Michelle on the subject of Alien/Human Hybrids.

We also find that Elaine has written a comment to an article posted on Kent Steadman's site.
6/19/2002 6:00 PM
Re: SLEUTH ALERT: Worldwide Periodical Time Shift?
So all we have to go on are a number of mechanical watches (which DO and SHOULD lose time, because no watch is perfect). How did you know these watches measured time accurately before this magical date? A decent way you can measure the rate of watches losing time is to record the difference of your standard time reference (STR to save me typing) to your time. If the difference between your watches over a few days, and the STR increases then either there is something going on with time or your watch is deteriorating. If the difference between these watches and the STR is relatively constant over time, everything should be normal. And the sun moving? You should consider errors made in your measuring and the dodginess of the astro-software you use -- and don´t forget the fact that the sun naturally changes its path across the sky across seasons. HTH.

Elaine Belisha
We notice that both ladies like Kent Steadman and both ladies are into Montauk and alien abductions. So, we have a look at Kent Steadman just for the heck of it:
Registrant: Kent Steadman (CYBERSPACEORBIT2-DOM)
425 South 156th Street, #119A Seattle, WA 98148 US
Record created on 01-Sep-1999.
This jogs our memory and we recall that Network Traffic which now owns is also in Washington state.
Probably a coincidence.

But then there is that strange coincidence where suddenly came to be in Atlanta, where the OLD hifiexchange used to be... while the old hifiexchange went off to Washington State and we see some strange little threads hanging out here and there just waiting to be pulled.

So, I went back to Network Traffic which has the nifty little trademarked icon... and searched the US Trademark site.

No corporation filings in Washington State either.

Whoever they are, these folks are invisible.

Remember Larry Tedesco and about which company we are told:
The 6-year-old company has brought in roughly $4 million in investments over its lifetime, much of which came from Arkansas investment bank Stephens Inc., which is owned by the family of PGA legend and former Augusta National Chairman Jack Stephens.
With sales last year topping $9 million, Tedesco believes it's time to expand the profitable auction site to include other high-end goods. expects to pull in revenues of $2.5 million on projected sales of $15 million this year, Tedesco said. [...]
Since the site went live six years ago with only a few dozen users, the company has attracted 200,000 regular users and has gained the backing of the PGA of America and Golf Magazine. The company also began publishing a "blue book" reference guide of used golf club values based on the nearly 100,000 golf equipment transactions it handles each year.
Now remember that when we searched the domain registration of hifiexchange, we found that the domain was registered by Keyword Traffic on July 31, 2003. So if it was a 6 year old company in 2002, then that means that Haim Belisha is either closely involved, or acted as a front since he and Elaine Belisha owned hifiexchange prior to that time.

Just to get a handle on who these people are, go HERE and read carefully. Among other things you will find:
1979 Mochtar Riady and Stephens Inc set up Stephens Finance Ltd. In Hong Kong. Lance is indicted on charges of violating federal banking laws. Clifford's partner, Robert Altman, represents Lance who eventually achieves a hung jury. During this same period, Stephens is, according to Peter Truell and Larry Gurwin in "False Profits," playing "a crucial role in BCCI's penetration of the US market."

1984 Mochtar Riady buys a stake in the Worthen holding company whose assets include the Stephens-controlled Worthen Bank. Price: $16 million. Other Worthen co-owners will eventually include BCCI investor Abdullah Taha Bakhish. Deal handled by C. Joseph Giroir II. Giroir is the Rose law firm chair who hired Hillary Clinton. Giroir will continue to be a deal-maker for the Riadys.

1985 Arkansas state pension funds -- deposited in Worthen by Governor Bill Clinton -- suddenly lose 15% of their value because of the failure of high risk, short-term investments and the brokerage firm that bought them. The $52 million loss is covered by a Worthen check written by Jack Stephens in the middle of the night, an insurance policy, and the subsequent purchase over the next few months of 40% of the bank by Mochtar Riady. Clinton and Worthen escape a major scandal. Mochtar's son James comes back to Arkansas to manage Worthen as president. Worthen is investigated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for improper loans to companies owned by the Riadys and Stephenses.

1986 George W. Bush and partners receive more than $2 million of Harken Energy stock in exchange for a failing oil well operation, which has lost $400,000 in the prior six months. After Bush joins Harken, the largest stock position and a seat on its board is acquired by Harvard Management Company. The Harken board gives Bush $600,000 worth of the company's publicly traded stock, plus a seat on the board plus a consultancy that pays him up to $120,000 a year. When Harken runs short of cash it hooks up with Jackson Stephens, who arranges a $25 million stock purchase by Union Bank of Switzerland. Sheik Abdullah Bakhsh, who joins the board as a part of the deal, is connected to BCCI.

1988 Stephens' wife Mary Ann runs George Bush's campaign in Arkansas. He is a member of Team 100 -- individuals who have given $100,000 to the Republican party.

A few days before the supposedly surprise arrest of five BCCI officials, some of the world's most powerful drug dealers quietly withdraw millions of dollars from the bank. Some government investigators believe the dealers were tipped off by sources within the Reagan administration. [...]

1991 Stephens Inc gives $100,000 to a Bush dinner committee. With Stephens, Mochtar Riady buys BCCI's former Hong Kong subsidiary from its liquidators. A former top aide to White House Chief of Staff John Sununu goes to work for a prominent figure in the BCCI scandal less than a month after leaving the Bush administration. Edward Rogers Jr. signs a $600,000 contract to give legal advice to Sheik Kamal Adham, an ex-Saudi intelligence officer who is being investigated for his role in BCCI's takeover of First American Bankshares.

The Miami acting US Attorney is reportedly rebuffed by the Justice Department in his efforts to indict BCCI and some of its principal officers on tax fraud charges. Justice Department later denies this occurred. [...]
We wonder again, just who owns NOW? And geez, Elaine Belisha, founder of sure hangs out with interesting people, eh?

But let's go back to that funny remark Elaine Belisha made on Kent Steadman's site
:"It is amusing how the "white" man valued the beliefs of my people so little until now, when they realize thier f#@$ed,they run to us for the answer."
This connects us back to Will Scott Anderson of the Aussie Bloke Hoax:
Scott Anderson is the current spokesperson for a false group operating out of Deltona Florida using the name of Indian Creek Band of Chickamauga Cherokee. Anderson has in fact been known for the solicitation of donations from the public on behalf of a Convicted Sex Criminal who is a Registered Sex Offender in the State of Missouri, along with several other incidents of exploitation affecting American Indian People.
With all the sex-capades going on in the background of Elaine Belisha's life, put together with her remark that seems to indicate that she is claiming to be Native American, we can't help but make a connection here, however tenuous.

If all of this doesn't look like covert ops run by the Bush-MOSSAD Administration in cahoots with their Saudi pals, I don't know what does.

In short: Godlikeproductions is Psy-Ops.
