    Al Steele and Pepsi Cola Company
    Crawford married her final husband, Alfred Steele, at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas on May 10. 1955.[37] Crawford and Steele met at a party in 1950 when Steele was an executive with Coca-Cola. They renewed their acquaintance at a New Year’s Eve party in 1954. Steele by that time had become the president of Pepsi Cola.[38] Crawford traveled extensively on behalf of Pepsi following the marriage. She estimated that she traveled over 100,000 miles for the company.[2] Steele died of a heart attack in April 1959. Crawford was initially advised that her services were no longer required. After she told the story to Louella Parsons, Pepsi reversed its position and Crawford was elected to fill the vacant seat on the board of directors.[39]

    Richard Nixon’s Greatest Cover-Up: His Ties to the Assassination of President Kennedy
    by Don Fulsom

    July 23, 1963: Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa tells his lawyer, Frank Ragano, “Something has to be done. The time has come for your friend (Santos Trafficante) and Carlos (Marcello) to get rid of him, kill that son-of-a-bitch John Kennedy.”

    Nov. 8: Oswald allegedly writes a note to a “Mr. Hunt” asking for “information.”

    Nov. 21: Ostensibly in Dallas to attend a Pepsi Cola convention, Nixon asks the city to give President Kennedy a respectful welcome.

    Nov. 21: Chicago Mob boss Sam Giancana meets with Nixon in Dallas to discuss the planned Kennedy assassination, Giancana later tells relatives.

    Nov. 22: Nixon leaves Dallas, apparently before Kennedy’s arrival.

    Nov. 22: President Kennedy is murdered in Dallas.

    Nov. 24: Ruby kills Oswald in the basement of the Dallas police jail.

    1963: Nixon recommends Congressman Gerald Ford for the Warren Commission.

    1964: Nixon lies to the FBI about being in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

    1964: Ford convinces the commission to alter a key finding—making its preposterous “single bullet” assassination theory slightly more believable, documents released in 1997 show. The theory held that one of the bullets struck Kennedy in the back, came out his neck, and then somehow critically wounded Texas Governor John Connally. Ford’s change placed the back wound higher in Kennedy’s body.

    1964: Nixon and Ford write articles in advance of Warren Commission Report endorsing its anticipated conclusion that Oswald alone was responsible for Kennedy’s assassination.

    Sept. 1964: The Warren Report finds that Oswald—firing from a sniper’s nest on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository—was President Kennedy’ sole assassin.

    Nov. 1968: In a squeaker, Nixon is elected president with big support from the Teamsters union and the Mob.

    1971: After a Mob payoff of at least $300,000, Nixon grants clemency to Hoffa—who had been jailed for jury tampering in 1967.

    June 1971: Former CIA agent E. Howard Hunt secretly joins the Nixon White House as the president’s chief spy.

    May 1972: Nixon confides to two top aides that the Warren Report was “the greatest hoax that has ever been perpetuated,” a White House tape released in 2002 reveals.

    June 17, 1972: A group of burglars working for Nixon’s re-election is caught by Washington, D.C. police while breaking into Democratic headquarters at the Watergate complex. Hunt and former FBI official G. Gordon Liddy are soon identified as the group’s supervisors.

    June 23, 1972: To gain CIA help in the Watergate cover-up, Nixon tries to blackmail CIA chief Richard Helms over the secrets that Hunt might blab regarding CIA’s links to “the Bay of Pigs”—which top Nixon aide Bob Haldeman later reveals to be Nixon/CIA code for the JFK assassination.

    Nov. 1972: In a landslide, Nixon is re-elected president with the help of a reported $1 million Teamsters’ contribution.

    Nixon’s Three Stories of Where He Was on November 22, 1963

    In the first place, strange things which could scarcely all be coincidence happened even before JFK was killed. On the morning of November 22, 1963, the day Kennedy was killed the New York Times carried an item on a back page, It was datelined Dallas. And it said that ex-Vice-President Richard M. Nixon had made a speech in Dallas before a group of businessmen,

    Not only did the Times carry that story on the very day JFK died, but Nixon was in Dallas the day Kennedy died, and it is very possible that he was still in Dallas at the moment Kennedy died. Despite all other reports to the contrary. And of course the thing that makes this so very important is that Nixon and others have for some reason tried to conceal that fact for more than twelve years.

    The True Story

    Actually, Nixon was in Dallas when JFK was shot. On April 2nd 1975 a young man was listening to a talk at his school when he heard the lecturer tell about the Esquire account of Nixon’s trip to Dallas, and how and when Nixon had learned about JFK’s death. That young man then told the lecturer, “My father was an executive for the Pepsi Cola Company, and he was in Dallas on November 22nd 1963 at that convention. He has told me that Nixon was there in Dallas at the convention when the announcement was heard that JFK had been killed, Nixon left later that afternoon,”

    This young man is the son of Mr. Harvey Russel of the Pepsi Cola Company. When Mr. Russel was informed of his son’s account, he agreed that his son’s story was true. Mr. Russel confirmed that Nixon was attending that meeting at the time the shots were fired. He added Nixon was there representing the Pepsi Cola Company’s law firm Mudge, Rose, Nixon et al. The Dallas newspapers stated that Nixon was attending a board meeting.

    Mr. Russel confirmed that the session Nixon was attending broke up when the assassination news came through. Nixon then returned to his hotel and later in the afternoon had been driven to the Dallas airport by a Mr. Deluca, also a Pepsi Cola official.

    Celebrating an assassination

    FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover wrote the memo referring to the Bush Sr. briefing; and on the night before Kennedy arrived in Dallas, Hoover met with others at the Dallas ranch of Texas oil baron and Dallas Cowboys owner Colin J. “Clint” Murchison, Jr., according to retired Army Brigadier General William Penn Jones—

    George H. W. Bush and Richard Nixon joined Hoover that night in Dallas at the Murchison gathering on November 21, 1963 before Kennedy arrived the next day, according to alleged Kennedy co-conspirator and spotter Frank Sturgis—victim of a covered-up poisoning death in October 1992 prior to the Bush-Clinton November election.

    Sturgis’ explosive revelations about Bush and Nixon is also confirmed by a living witness who worked for Clint Murchison Jr. at the time of the assassination; and incredibly, the witness corroborated the meeting prior to the assassination, but also a second gathering involving alleged co conspirators (including the assassins and their spotters) who toasted and celebrated Kennedy’s death as they watched television reports that night, according to Webb who has spoken with the witness—and both are available to testify before a grand jury.

    The living witness also identified a photograph of George Bush Sr.’s White House Counsel C. Boyden Gray as a regular visitor to Murchison’s Dallas ranch during this time period and almost until Murchison’s death while allegedly working as a conduit between the CIA and the FBI regarding illegal black operations, according to Stew Webb and the witness who are available to testify if subpoenaed before a grand jury.

    Bush 41 links to Watergate, the ‘Texans’ and the ‘Bay of Pigs’ thing

    There is evidence that one of the main reasons Nixon ordered the Watergate break-in was for the purpose of locating incriminating photographs taken during the Kennedy assassination.

    In his book The Immaculate Deception–The Bush Crime Family Exposed [1991, America West Publishers, pp. 31-39], retired U.S. Army Brigadier General Russell Bowen also referred to the Hoover memo, revealing that a FOIA lawsuit publicized an FBI report regarding a man identifying himself as “George H. W. Bush” who telephoned the FBI’s Houston office within hours of Kennedy’s death with information about a threat allegedly made against JFK by a young right-wing Republican.

    The FBI report referred to by Bowen stated “On November 22, 1963, Mr. George H. W. Bush, 5535 Briar, Houston, Texas telephonically advised…that one James Parrott had been talking of killing the president when he comes to Houston.”

    On pages 33-36 of The Immaculate Deception, General Bowen recounts the full details of a government effort to misidentify George H. W. Bush as George William Bush in an effort to cover up the future president’s role in the events of November 22, 1963.

    In the “smoking gun” taped discussion, Nixon also links the “the Cubans,” “the Texans,” “Helms,” “Hunt,” “Bernard Barker,” “Robert Mosbacher,” and “the Bay of Pigs,” according to the retired General.

    “Over and over on the Watergate tapes, these names come up in the discussions of the photos from Dallas that Nixon was supposedly trying to obtain in the Watergate burglary,” said Bowen.

    Frank Sturgis confirmed the existence of assassination photos like the one above of Bush at the Texas Book Depository when he told the San Francisco Chronicle in a May 7, 1977 interview, “the reason we burglarized the Watergate was because Nixon was interested in stopping news leaking relating to the photos of our role in the assassination of President John Kennedy.”

    Dirty Politics — Nixon, Watergate, and the JFK Assassination by Mark Tracy

    Dallas journalist Jim Marrs gives this account: “With Nixon in Dallas was Pepsi-Cola heiress and actress Joan Crawford. Both Nixon and Crawford made comments in the Dallas newspapers to the effect that they, unlike the President, didn’t need Secret Service protection, and they intimated that the nation was upset with Kennedy’s policies. It has been suggested that this taunting may have been responsible for Kennedy’s critical decision not to order the Plexiglas top placed on his limousine on November 22.”

    [Notes: The Pepsi-Cola company had a sugar plantation and factory in Cuba, which the Cuban government nationalized in 1960; CIA contract agent Chauncey Holt told Newsweek magazine in 1991 that Pepsi-Cola President Donald Kendall was “considered by the CIA to be the eyes and ears of the CIA” in the Caribbean; a photograph taken on November 21, 1963 — the day before the assassination — shows Donald Kendall meeting with Richard Nixon in Dallas.

    Other facts linking Nixon to the JFK assassination emerged years later during the Watergate conspiracy, some of which were revealed by Nixon’s former chief of staff, H. R. Haldeman in his memoir, The Ends of Power. Haldeman cites several conversations where Nixon expressed concern about the Watergate affair becoming public knowledge and where this exposure might lead. Haldeman writes:

    “In fact, I was puzzled when he [Nixon] told me, ‘Tell Ehrlichman this whole group of Cubans [Watergate burglars] is tied to the Bay of Pigs.’ After a pause I said, ‘The Bay of Pigs? What does that have to do with this [the Watergate burglary]?’ But Nixon merely said, ‘Ehrlichman will know what I mean,’ and dropped the subject.”

    Later in his book, Haldeman appears to answer his own question when he says, “It seems that in all of those Nixon references to the Bay of Pigs, he was actually referring to the Kennedy assassination.”

    If Haldeman’s interpretation is correct, then Nixon’s instructions for him to, “Tell Ehrlichman this whole group of [anti-Castro] Cubans is tied to the Bay of Pigs,” was Nixon’s way of telling him to inform Ehrlichman that the Watergate burglars were tied to Kennedy’s murder. (It should be noted that many Cuban exiles blamed Kennedy for the failure to overthrow Castro at the Bay of Pigs, pointing to Kennedy’s refusal to allow the U.S. military to launch a full-scale invasion of the island.)

    Haldeman also links the Central Intelligence Agency to the Watergate burglars and, by implication, to the Kennedy assassination. Haldeman writes, “…at least one of the burglars, [Eugenio] Martinez, was still on the CIA payroll on June 17, 1972 — and almost certainly was reporting to his CIA case officer about the proposed break-in even before it happened [his italics].”

    The other Watergate conspirators were G. Gordon Liddy, Bernard Barker, Frank Sturgis, Virgilio Gonzales and ex-CIA agents James McCord and E. Howard Hunt. Hunt’s relationship with the anti-Castro Cubans traces back to the early 1960s, to his days with the Central Intelligence Agency. As a CIA political officer and propaganda expert, Hunt helped plan the Bays of Pigs operation and also helped create the Cuban Revolutionary Council — a militant anti-Castro organization. Hunt would later retire from the CIA (at least ostensibly) to become covert operations chief for the Nixon White House. [Note: Hunt maintained a working relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency even after his “retirement,” obtaining camera equipment and disguises from the CIA’s Technical Services Division for use in the Watergate burglary.]

    Several reports over the years have placed Hunt in Dallas at the time of the Kennedy assassination. In 1974, the Rockefeller Commission concluded that Hunt used eleven hours of sick leave from the CIA in the two-week period preceding the assassination. Later, eyewitness Marita Lorenz testified under oath that she saw Hunt pay off an assassination team in Dallas the night before Kennedy’s murder. (Hunt v. Liberty Lobby; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida; 1985) Click to read transcript

    In taped conversations with Haldeman, Nixon is obviously worried about what would happen if Hunt’s involvement in the Watergate conspiracy came to light. Nixon says, “Of course, this Hunt, that will uncover a lot of things. You open that scab, there’s a hell of a lot of things, and we feel that it would be very detrimental to have this thing go any further … the President’s belief is that this is going to open the whole Bay of Pigs thing up again.” Click to Listen: Nixon instructs Haldeman on what to tell the CIA (text below)

    NIXON: When you get in to see these people, say: “Look, the problem is that this will open the whole, the whole Bay of Pigs thing, and the President just feels that…” ah, I mean, without going into the details of, of lying to them to the extent to say that there is no involvement. But, you can say, “This is sort of a comedy of errors, bizarre,” without getting into it, “The President’s belief is that this is going to open the whole Bay of Pigs thing up again. And, ah because ah these people are playing for, for keeps and that they should call the FBI in and we feel that … that we wish for the country, don’t go any further into this case, period!”

    Following instructions, Haldeman informed CIA Director Richard Helms of Nixon’s concern that the Watergate investigation would “open the whole Bay of Pigs thing up again.” Haldeman gives this account of what transpired next:

    “Turmoil in the room. Helms, gripping the arms of his chair, leaning forward and shouting, ‘The Bay of Pigs had nothing to do with this. I have no concern about the Bay of Pigs.’

    “Silence. I just sat there. I was absolutely shocked by Helms’ violent reaction. Again I wondered, what was such dynamite in the Bay of Pigs story?”

    Eleven days after Hunt’s arrest for the Watergate burglary, L. Patrick Gray, acting FBI Director, was called to the White House and told by Nixon aide John Ehrlichman to “deep six” written files taken from Hunt’s personal safe. The FBI Director was told that the files were “political dynamite and clearly should not see the light of day.” Gray responded by taking the material home and burning it in his fireplace. John Dean, council to the president, acted similarly by shredding Hunt’s operational diary.

    Futhermore, as former White House correspondent Don Fulsom reveals, “The newest Nixon tapes are studded with deletions — segments deemed by government censors as too sensitive for public scrutiny. ‘National Security’ is cited. Not surprisingly, such deletions often occur during discussions involving the Bay of Pigs, E. Howard Hunt, and John F. Kennedy.

    One of the most tantalizing nuggets about Nixon’s possible inside knowledge of JFK assassination secrets was buried on a White House tape until 2002. On the tape, recorded in May of 1972, the president confided to two top aides that the Warren Commission pulled off ‘the greatest hoax that has ever been perpetuated.’ Unfortunately, he did not elaborate.”

  • The National Security Agency tracks the locations of nearly 5 billion cellphones every day overseas, including those belonging to Americans abroad, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

    The NSA inadvertently gathers the location records of “tens of millions of Americans who travel abroad” annually, along with the billions of other records it collects by tapping into worldwide mobile network cables, the newspaper said in a report on its website.

    Such data means the NSA can track the movements of almost any cellphone around the world, and map the relationships of the cellphone user. The Post said a powerful analytic computer program called CO-TRAVELER crunches the data of billions of unsuspecting people, building patterns of relationships between them by where their phones go. That can reveal a previously unknown terrorist suspect, in guilt by cellphone-location association, for instance.

    As the NSA doesn’t know which part of the data it might need, the agency keeps up to 27 terabytes, or more than double the text content of the Library of Congress’ print collection, the Post said. A 2012 internal NSA document said the volumes of data from the location program were “outpacing our ability to ingest, process and store” it, the newspaper said.

    The program is detailed in documents given to the newspaper by former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden. The Post also quotes unidentified NSA officials, saying they spoke with the permission of their agency.

    Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, declined to comment on the report.

    The DNI’s general counsel, Robert Litt, has said that NSA does not intentionally gather bulk location data on U.S. cellphones inside the U.S. — but NSA Director Keith Alexander testified before Congress his agency ran tests in 2010 and 2011 on “samples” of U.S. cell-site data to see if it was technically possible to plug such data into NSA analysis systems. Alexander said that the information was never used for intelligence purposes and that the testing was reported to congressional intelligence committees. He said it was determined to be of little “operational value,” so the NSA did not ask for permission to gather such data.

    Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat and a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said at the time that Alexander could have explained more. “The intelligence leadership has decided to leave most of the real story secret,” Wyden said, though he would not elaborate on the extent of the program. Wyden and two other Democratic lawmakers have introduced an amendment to the 2014 defense spending bill that would require intelligence agencies to say whether the NSA “or any other element of the intelligence community has ever collected the cell-site location information of a large number of United States persons with no known connection to suspicious activity, or made plans to collect such information.”

    Alexander and other NSA officials have explained that when U.S. data is gathered “incidentally” overseas, it is “minimized,” meaning that when an NSA analysts realize they are dealing with a U.S. phone number, they limit what can be done with it and how long that data can be kept.

    Rights activists say those measures fall short of protecting U.S. privacy.

    “The scale of foreign surveillance has become so vast, the amount of information about Americans ‘incidentally’ captured may itself be approaching mass surveillance levels,'” said Elizabeth Goitein of the Brennan Center for Justice’s Liberty and National Security Program.

    “The government should be targeting its surveillance at those suspected of wrongdoing, not assembling massive associational databases that by their very nature record the movements of a huge number of innocent people,” said Catherine Crump, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union.

  • Hi BU:

    Pornography is now easily available to all school children who have access to a tablet or a smart phone. It is facilitated by persons who allow unrestricted access to the Internet in their homes or at the many Wi-Fi hotspots around Barbados. So let me share a solution; but first, let me describe the problem.

    Pornography has two main damaging effects. The impact for viewers is that that they can primarily view sexual intercourse as a means to satisfy themselves rather than satisfying their partners. For male viewers, this can lead to a less satisfying sexual experience for her and a boring routine for him. He will likely develop an uncaring attitude towards her if she does not express a similar delight in his sexual performance as those whom he watches. His sexual experience should be all about satisfying her, and her sexual experience should be all about satisfying him.

    The most damaging impact is on the victims whom the watchers are viewing. Many women, especially from Asian and eastern European countries, are forced into the sex slave trade, with harsh consequences if they do not show delight when raped (See ‘Half the Sky’ and other research into sex slavery). As the watchers view these victims, they are supporting and sustaining this slavery. If people choose not to pay to view pornography on the Internet, then they still support and sustain the sex slave trade by adding to the web sites’ page views, which increases their potential advertising revenues.

    For men to intentionally choose to harm themselves and their marriages for a few moments of pleasure is irresponsible. However, for viewers to sustain the sex slave trade, and the hopelessness of the victims who are repeatedly raped into submission, is unconscionable. The persons who forced the victims into sex slavery are vile. However, how do we describe the viewers who keep them in slavery by sustaining the slave owners’ profits? For us descendants of slaves, who should be held to a higher standard in this matter, to now sustain the enslavement of these women, is beyond my comprehension. So what is an economical and effective solution?

    The obvious solution would be for the local Internet service providers to block pornographic images. However, this may attract claims of censorship from persons who feel entitled to access pornography regardless of the consequential damage to viewers and their victims. Yes, the sex slave actually becomes the victim of their Internet viewer. Therefore, the responsibility of helping the victims must fall heavily on all Internet subscribers.

    Every household, school, resource centre and business with an Internet account should protect our children, and refuse to support the sex slave trade, by installing an effective pornography blocker at their router. I recommend the free “Open DNS Family Shield” software, which can be installed at the router in less than 2 minutes. This should have the added benefit of significantly improving productivity in the work place.

  • Who Guards the Guards?

    In the Nation News of Sunday January 11, 2015, there is an article that reports on the outcome of a court case, in which the High Court has ruled against a Member of Parliament, a lawyer, and ordered said Member to pay to a client, monies of over two hundred thousand dollars that was received something like two years ago.

    I do wonder, in what circumstances should a lawyer be able to hold funds for two years, especially sums of that high amount, but indeed, any funds.

    On a point, not stating this is the event in this case, but relevant in discussion of professionals and client monies, allegations are made of lawyers holding client monies for extended periods.

    In most jurisdictions, lawyers, real estate agents and like professionals are required by law to maintain a separate client account, where client monies are kept separate and apart from the operating business monies.

    These client accounts are audited as part of the annual audit of such professionals.

    Again, I am not saying that this is the event in this case, but surely this case highlights the need for renewed vigour around controls of the deposits of client monies in any profession.

    Does Barbados have these necessary controls? If not, when will such controls be implemented? Do we have to wait for such laws to be enacted, similarly to Integrity and Transparency Legislation?

    One another point. Is it right that the perception, that an individual in a significant position of standing should appear, such perception right or wrong, to be delinquent in addressing professional matters?

    Surely this is a serious cause for concern, after all, who guards the guards, those with the highest decision making potential in the country?

    To successfully recover form the current state of business and economic strife, confidence is required, which must be driven by the top management of the country.

    It is not a choice, it is a need.

  • Missing In Action???

    The Nation newspaper today has included a short note on the ongoing Nigerian Student saga, referencing a side point.

    This side point relates to an allegation that one reason that the hostelry of the Visiting Students is in issue, is that USD500,000 has gone absent without leave.

    It is indeed sad, that whatever project takes place now in Barbados, whatever event, one may, rightly or wrongly, perceive that Money ends up Missing In Action.

    It now sounds as if the old adage, Money Talks and BareShoot Walks, needs to be adjusted for today’s Barbados, such that it reads ‘Money Walks and Bareshoot is Talked’.

  • We will NEVER fly Liat Airline again
    Feb 23, 2015, 12:15 PM
    We sat in a LIAT Departure Area for 2 days of a 3 day vacation and never made it to our destination.

    My husband & I boarded LIAT 310 out of Trinidad at 5:30am on February 18th for a 3 day vacation to Antigua.

    The flight was delayed due to a technical problem w/ the plane and we were taken off the plane.

    The problem was fixed, we boarded the plane again and flew to the first stop, St. Vincent.

    In St. Vincent, after boarding the St. Vincent passengers the same plane had a technical problem again and we were all taken off the plane.

    We ended up spending the entire day in St. Vincent. All efforts to get re-booked on another flight and get information about our options to fly to another destination to get other connecting flights were met with apathy and complete denial of service.

    They put us up for the night in a hostile and the next morning took us back to the airport and had us stand in line for the same flight, 310, we were booked on the morning before.

    Instead of getting on the first flight out in the morning to Antigua. We were flown to Barbados for a connecting flight at 1:50p to arrive at 3:15p.

    At 12 Noon on Thursday February 19th in the LIAT Departure Area in Barbados we were told our flight to Antigua was delayed and we would not arrive to Antigua until the evening. The

    LIAT agent indicated that they could get us back to Port of Spain before they could get us to Antigua.

    We had multiple times ( 8 ) conveyed to LIAT ticket agents – boarding agents – flight attendants & LIAT supervisors that LIAT was jeopardizing our 3 day vacation in an effort for LIAT to show empathy & provide us Priority boarding.

    LIAT’s response to try & place us on flights to Antigua did not materialize.

    With 2 days out of our 3 day vacation to Antigua spent in LIAT Departure Areas – we cancelled our vacation to cut our losses.

    The Liat agent immediately re-booked us on a flight to Port of Spain and told us he would have our checked luggage retagged.

    At time of another delayed departure we inquired about our checked bag because we had not received the new tag. We were told it would be brought up from customs. We boarded the plane and asked the flight attendant to confirm our bag had been loaded and give us the tag. The flight attendant said the bag had been loaded, but they hadn’t had time to get a tag.

    We arrived in POS, and our bag did not. We filed a missing luggage claim w/ the POS Liat agent. We informed the agent the luggage was originally tagged to go to Antigua and she recorded it on the report.

    The next morning we called the baggage service and was told they would find the bag, give us a call, and deliver to our hotel.

    Saturday morning February 21st, we called Liat baggage service again because we had not heard back and was told they had not located the bag. On a whim we called the customer relations number on an email we had received from an agent regarding our complaint about our failed trip to Antigua. This call was answered by David in Antigua baggage claim.

    “David, do you have a red hard case bag there?”

    “Yes, what’s the name on the bag?”

    “Bogle”

    “Yes, that bag is here. Where is it suppose to be?”

    “Port of Spain”

    “Ok, here’s the new tag number for POS, it will be on flight 309 to POS….”

    We retrieved our bag Saturday night Feb 21st from POS airport. Thank you, David.

    We have never had such a horrible experience with an airline. We will never fly Liat airline again.

    Project Camelot has been covering the roll-out of Artificial Intelligence, that emerged from the PROMIS SOFTWARE augmentation by Michael Riconisciutto to the Battle of the AI’s playing out in Aurora Colorado and the Mark Richard’s interviews. Project Camelot witness, Pete Peterson in Part Three of our interview, years ago admitted that in essence we were already living in the TERMINATOR scenario with a Skynet centralized command and control system. We reported and interview Anthony Sanchez extensively regarding PROJECT LEONID the Lockheed Martin nano satellite grid in place surrounding our planet and the whistleblowers on the run who reported these satellites were self-replicating and self-repairing. We have also covered the downing of various flights specificallly the link to the Freescale division of Mottorola centralized master chip and disappearance of MH flight 370…

    We have reported the targeting capability of the AI system directly connected to weapons using the original PROMIS database to profile racial, social, political and other categorization of humanity. Our whistleblower Jake Simpson, years ago talked about the extensive surveillance capability of the secret government that goes far beyond anything talked about by Edward Snowden.

    "The AI surveillance system, Jake told us, was literally "out of this world". It operates hyperdimensionally, based on a highly advanced quantum computing model that is basically our development based on acquired alien technology. This system is so advanced that the ETs themselves are unhappy that we have it."--Paraphrasing Jake Simpson, quoted from Project Camelot interview with Jake Simpson, http://projectcamelotportal.com/archive/2-written-interviews-and-reports-by-name/2321-jake-simpson-the-biggest-secret-report
    

    Now we are hearing about the AI aspects of the JADE HELM 2 system… linked to the roll-out of JADE HELM 15. Which leads one to wonder about Jade Helm 1 -15 and beyond…

    It is important to keep in mind that the Jade 2 system is not just associated with Jade Helm 15 but for more extensive and been in place for years.

    Dark “NIght” Battle of the Robots – ARTICLE by Kerry Cassidy

    Last night I had Nighthawk from Revolution Radio and Ghostwalker, an ex-special forces guy on my show discussing the Batman/Aurora Shooting.

    Update as of August 3, 3012 at 1pm: Nitehawkk just sent me the Aurora Police Scanner Transcription click here. (Incredible amount of work :-))

    As I posted a few days ago here on this blog the link up between the shooter’s father and the LIBOR scandal is likely a substantial background element that may point to something much bigger going on here.

    This recent article by Grace Powers reposted here in with a link to the whole report, is very clear and concise, an excellent overview of the evidence and where it is leading.

    Note: I believe Jack Blood broke this story originally regarding the background of Jame Holmes’ father and how that factors in… The links to the Batman movie scenario are also here in Jack Blood’s original article.

    Batman Massacre: WHY and HOW and WHO 
    
    Written by By Grace Powers July 28, 2012
    
    www.helpfreetheearth.com
    
    THE MOTIVES
    
    Robert Holmes, the shooting suspect's father, is a senior lead scientist with FICO, the American credit score company. He was scheduled to testify in the next few weeks before a US Senate panel that is investigating the largest bank fraud scandal in world history. This banking fraud threatens to destabilize and destroy the Western banking system.
    
    Robert Holmes not only uncovered the true intent of the massive LIBOR banking fraud, but his "predictive algorithm model" also traced the trillions of "hidden"dollars to the exact bank accounts of the elite classes who stole it. In other words, Robert Holmes could NAME NAMES! Those names WOULD AWAKEN THE WORLD to the depth of government and corporate corruption which could include members of Congress, Wall Street, Federal Reserve and EU executives and could even include US Presidential candidates and the British Royal family.
    
    The motives for the massacre are:
    
    1) To silence whistelblower Robert Holmes whose son is now facing a possible death sentence 
    
    2) To influence the upcoming vote on the UN Global Small Arms Treaty which could result in gun confiscation and disarming world citizens. The UN treaty could override national sovereignty and give a license to federal governments to assert preemptive gun control powers over state regulatory powers.....continued at
    
    http://www.helpfreetheearth.com/news617_batmanwhohow.html
    

    THE BATTLE OF THE ROBOTS OR AI SYSTEMS

    With regard to the Batman movie scenario I also think it is significant and not outlined in Jack Blood’s analysis, that the Dark Knight ends up working for the “government” who are portrayed as the good guys in order to stop what I took to be a free energy device that was reconfigured into a “fusion reactor” aka neutron bomb according to the movie. The enemy in other words becomes “free energy devices” which according to the subliminal message can be turned into dangerous weapons (a position that the Illuminati takes to redirect the public away from the exploration into zero-point or what is commonly known as “free energy”). In the movie, the Dark Knight flies the activated device out over the waters around NYC and detonates it, saving the city (and himself) in the process.

    It is also notable that the destruction of a stadium is one of the key scenes in the movie… imploding from an underground explosion…

    Jack Blood is quite correct with regard to the link between the PROMIS SOFTWARE / OCTOPUS investigation where journalist Danny Casolaro was found dead in a hotel room, supposedly having strangled himself in a bathtub.

    The Promis Software story has not reached the mainstream and is key to understanding the DEVELOPMENT OF AI and tracing not only banking transactions but for use in targeting and profiling and a myriad of other capabilities. Whereas the software that the shooter’s father was working on “detects financial fraud” it may be considered a potential and very serious threat to the Promis system and quite possibly be able to detail involvement of the perpetrators in the LIBOR and other banking frauds going on right now.

    What comes to mind is the idea here that this enitre scenario as played out in the Aurora Colorado theater was created by an AI that detected a rival software that would threaten those it is SERVING… and therefore constructed a counter to that threat in the form of targeting this apparently quite brilliant (PhD candidate) James Holmes…

    In other words, the warning is certainly clear to his father Robert Holmes and likely the entire firm called FICO, Fair Issac Corporation. FAIR ISSAC sounds to me like the name of a robot… I would surmise what we have here is a battle between robots or ARTIFICIALLY INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS. The is something MUCH GREATER going on here than meets the eye or has been yet revealed.

    Note that the Credit reporting organization certainly appears on surface to be a loyal part of the surveillance aparatus of the NWO. So how is it that an individual, Robert Holmes, became such a threat to the system, such that his son was sacrificed on the alter of mind control in service of sending such a message?

    Yes, lesser objectives such as gun control and public terror is always a goal of such operations. But in light of the links as mentioned in the above articles to the Olympics, what we have here is a picture that begins to look like a multi-city op that has at it’s core a larger objective.

    THE GEOMETRIC CONSTRUCTION AKA DARKLY MAGICAL ACT

    I am convinced, based on all of the evidence and my previous points that there is much more going on here. The battle of the robots/AI systems may be the only real indicator of something more diabolical and more far reaching than what we have discovered so far.

    I suggest that this is a geometrical carefully formulated plot that goes from Aurora Colorado (goddess of the Golden Dawn) to the London Olympics with the Silverstein ownership in the background echoing the Twin Towers of 911, to a third point… that has yet to be revealed. At the very least there will emerge 3 locations creating a triangle because as any magician knows, (whether in service to the dark or the light) that is the very minimum needed when casting a spell or taking an action aimed at changing or affecting ‘reality’.

  • Not Appropriate”

    David, if you have a look at the online Nation newspaper of Saturday November 7, 2015, you will see a headline re the Banks Calendar Girl Competition.

    Whilst I, as most men, do enjoy the beauty of the female form, I suggest that one of the contestants has gone too far and the sponsors should have restricted the costume.

    While most wear ‘bikinis’, one is wearing an apparent ‘bikini’, however, practically nothing is on the top. Her breasts are clearly visible.

    Some may argue that all are showing off, however, I think such a competition can be done, however there is a line to be or not to be crossed.

    Further, does one need such an ‘advantage’ of displaying all, to overcome competition?

    Some women are very beautiful and sensuous even clothed in a full dress or clothes other than a bikini, just look at Rihanna.

On board were over one hundred Barbadian young men from every parish in the island, only a few were older than twenty four years of age. As the plane in the late tropical evening gained altitude and took a course to cross the Atlantic ocean no one on board could imagine what would happen on the same aircraft a mere ninety odd days later.

    On the 4th March 1962 G-ARD a DC-7 also in a late tropical evening took off from Douala International Airport in the Cameroon it lumbered into the African night, minutes later it nose dived in the jungle in a fire ball and exploded there were 101 passengers on board and a crew of 10 they were all killed – no survivors. Same aircraft tropical evening 94 days apart but different take off outcome.

    “Witnesses reported that the aircraft had an unusually long take off run and climbed slowly before disappearing behind the trees and the sky was lit with fire.”

    “The accident investigation was undertaken by the Directorate of Civil Aviation in Cameroon. The inquiry was held in Paris, as Cameroon was a French Colony at the time of the accident”

    For those of you who are interested in such things, to verify my research – this story has never been printed before with a link to Barbados as far as I am aware – see the beginnings of Caledonian Airways.

    “The initial aircraft type operated was the Douglas DC-7C, the first of which was leased from SABENA in November 1961. This aircraft was lost in a fatal accident in Cameroon on 4th March 1962”

    History of Caledonian Airways: “The first of Caledonian Airways aircraft was the one leased by the London Transport Executive to transport immigrants from Barbados to London. At the time it was lost in the jungles of Cameroon it was their only aircraft at the time.”

    Its now reached a stage where Obama has been pressured into ordering the security agencies to present him with a summary of the data and recommendations on what to do about a secret Sepember consensus by those agencies that Russia was implementing a hacking campaign to intercede in the November election on Trump’s behalf.

    This situation has the potential to seriously disrupt many aspects of governance not only in America but in the Caribbean and indeed globally. It also provides data that can call in question the the apparently self centred actions of Obama, the Republicans and the Democrats and could be a suitable topic for discussion by the BU family on many fronts.

    Trump has, since his victory, provided no information that could negate the possibility that he is a Russian resource enabled by Russia to be the new US president. If it turns out that the above is true then the consequences are enormous.

    The Nation news reports that C&W is seeking to purchase all remaining shares in the company, from minority shareholders ”Under the proposed amalgamation, shareholders will surrender their shares in Cable & Wireless Barbados in exchange for a cash payment of BBD$2.86 for each common share. ”

    For a company that has not paid a dividend for years, yet made substantial profits, how can such a low share price be substantiated.

    Surely the FSC should examine the calculations supporting such a share price, including the expected future earnings potential of the shares, as a share price should be calculated.

    That C&W Barbados has not paid a dividend in years would, while making profits, is shocking, would surely not be allowed by shareholders in North America (the directors would have been roasted, as NA shareholders in any company expect a dividend every quarter) and this ridiculously low share price merely adds insult to injury.

    What exactly is the FSC in Barbados doing to protect minority shareholders.

    This event adds credence to the assertion that there is no real stock market in Barbados, that any semblance of such is a veneer, with no real possibility of small shareholders earning via dividends or share appreciation.

    Add to this, that profitable companies locally are mostly privately owned and the whole thing becomes a joke.

    If one believes that assertion and I do, then the conclusion is that Barbadian citizens should be allowed to invest in international stock markets, to have every opportunity that others have. Handcuffing Barbadians in using their earned income to invest is idiocy.

    Government policy on investments, limitations on overseas investment, is nonsense and needs to change.

  • Butch Steward and Parasites:

    The Barbados Today digital newspaper has reported that Butch Stewart stated that Barbadians are too entitled.

    This is a remarkable statement from a hotel magnate whose company has received forty years of tax free concessions from Government, when small hoteliers get nothing.

    Entitled much?

    For a government to maintain services, it must seek revenues. By allowing one company to be exempt of all taxation, much revenue for services is lost.

    Is the problem lost revenue, or excess services? Many countries, especially in Europe, provide excellent social services and are able to function well.

    The problem is not the social services.

    As for Stewart’s own operations, at a time when Barbados is in urgent need of foreign exchange injections, can we ask whether room revenue from international sources, all of it, is banked in Barbados? Many companies, through their corporate structure and international banking arrangements, have revenues banked in say, Panama, sending only funds for operating expenses to the location of the operations.

    Therefore, significant foreign exchange flow loss results, for the source of operations.

    One wonders what is the process for Stewart’s operations? Are your revenues all banked in Barbados, Mr. Stewart?

    This revenue business is all the more critical, when international jurisdictions such as Canada are penalizing companies for sending operations cashflows out of foreign jurisdictions.

    Are we adhering to international standards, by allowing those companies that profit from Barbados’s economy, to do so?

In light of the evidence produced in a recent US lawsuit, anyone using Roundup herbicides would be wise to exercise extreme caution. According to the jury verdict, the warnings and handling instructions issued by the manufacturer are inadequate to protect users from harm. (Note that Monsanto was recently taken over by Bayer who said they will drop the Monsanto name from products but still maintain sales of Monsanto developed agro-chemicals, GM seeds etc..)

    Monsanto “Taken To The Cleaners” In Jury Verdict Dwayne Johnson v. Monsanto

    The Media Relations personnel of the law firm of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, PC emailed me at 6:20 PM Friday, August 10th, the verdict rendered by the jury in the 8-week trial whereby “the jury found unanimously that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused Mr. Johnson to develop NHL (i.e. Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma /GM), and that Monsanto failed to warn of this severe health hazard. Importantly, the jury also found that Monsanto acted with malice, oppression or fraud and should be punished for its conduct.” (Emphasis added /GM)

    Furthermore, and here’s the most important part of that decision, the jury decided

    <em>ordering the agrochemical giant to pay $39.2 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages for failing to warn consumers that exposure to Roundup weed killer causes cancer.</em>
    

    It seems Bayer bought a “pig-in-a-poke” when it decided to “marry” Monsanto! The above jury award amounts to $389.2 million to be paid to Mr. Dwayne Johnson, who is dying of non-Hodgkin lymphoma attributed to his spraying of Monsanto’s Roundup® products while working as a groundskeeper at a California school.

    This specific information in the email from the GHAG law firm ought to give all consumers a legal standing against Roundup® in any court action:

    <em>“Many of these confidential Monsanto documents were unsealed for the first time,” said co-lead counsel David Dickens. “They show that Monsanto knew that its testing was insufficient and that there was a synergistic effect when glyphosate is combined with surfactants which help the glyphosate penetrate both plant and animal cell walls.”</em>

    Children with autism have a peculiar digestive system disorder, as was recently eloquently described by Dr. Arthur Krigsman at the AutismOne conference. How might glyphosate (Roundup) cause this?

    In May of 2018 I had the opportunity to attend the AutismOne conference in Chicago, Illinois [1]. As in previous years, it was an exciting event where many experts, mostly alternative medicine practitioners, gave impassioned presentations offering their latest insights into various features of autism or biometrics linked to autism or treatment programs that they found to be beneficial. As in the past, I came away with increased optimism that we might finally solve the autism puzzle, along with many new leads on research topics that I needed to dig into more thoroughly, and renewed hope that autism can in fact be reversed.

    One talk in particular really grabbed my attention, a presentation by Dr. Arthur Krigsman providing a detailed depiction of the distinct pathology that characterizes the autism gut. I took copious notes, and I was thrilled to see how well his observations matched my predictions in terms of how glyphosate could be predicted to affect the gut. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup. It is used extensively on the core Roundup Ready crops of the processed food industry — corn, soy, canola, sugar beets – and also sprayed on many other common crops right before harvest as a desiccant or ripener — wheat, oats, legumes, sugar cane, etc. The United States government has not considered it to be necessary to test for the levels of glyphosate in food, because they consider it to be nontoxic to humans. An ever increasing body of research by independent scientists, however, has proven otherwise [2]. In fact, I now believe that glyphosate is the main factor causing the autism epidemic.

    Dr. Krigsman’s findings have been published in the research literature, and two recent publications provide considerable detail about the unique features of the gut dysbiosis linked to autism [3, 4]. In his talk, Dr. Krigsman said that 50% to 80% of autistic children have gut symptoms, and they seem to have a unique form of enterocolitis, characterized by a peculiar kind of constipation that is entirely not due to an obstruction. Their feces can pile up over days or even a week as soft stools that comes out after an accumulation of enough water eventually allows the contents to be flushed as diarrhea. As the feces pile up, their abdomen becomes bloated and tender to the touch. They are often described as experiencing alternating constipation and diarrhea, which seems contradictory at first but makes sense if you describe it this way. He explained it mostly as a motility problem: impaired peristalsis causes the feces to remain stagnant rather than being slowly pushed forward through the radial contractions of smooth muscle cells lining the abdominal wall that propagate in a wave down the tube. All I could think of was that the gut appeared to be paralyzed. Of course, this also leads to the build-up of excessive bacteria in the upper gut feasting on the immobilized feces, explaining a condition linked to autism called Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).

    I was very excited when I heard this, because I had been predicting that glyphosate would cause impaired peristalsis, if in fact my theory that it substitutes by mistake for glycine during protein synthesis is correct. I had supportive evidence from a paper describing a case study of a woman who tried to kill herself by drinking a glyphosate-based formulation. She survived the ordeal, but a striking observation by the team who treated her was that her gut became paralyzed [5].

  • Is Capitalism Killing Us?

    By economist Paul Craig Roberts

    Ecological economists, such as Herman E. Daly, stress that as the external costs of pollution and resource exhaustion are not included in Gross Domestic Product, we do not know whether an increase in GDP is a gain or a loss.

    External costs are huge and growing larger. Historically, manufacturing and industrial corporations, corporate farming, city sewer systems, and other culprits have passed the costs of their activities onto the environment and third parties. Recently, there has been a spate of reports with many centering on Monsanto’s Roundup, whose principle ingredient, glyphosate, is believed to be a carcinogen.

    A public health organization, the Environmental Working Group, recently reported that its tests found glyphosate in all but 2 of 45 children’s breakfast foods including granola, oats and snack bars made by Quaker, Kellogg and General Mills. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/aug/16/weedkiller-cereal-monsanto-roundup-childrens-food.

    Ecological economists stress that capitalism works in an “empty economy,” where the pressure of humans on natural resources is slight. But capitalism doesn’t work in a “full economy” where natural resources are on the point of exhaustion. The external costs associated with economic growth as measured by GDP can be more costly than the value of the output.

    A strong case can be made that this is the situation we currently face. The disappearance of species, the appearance of toxins in food, beverages, water, mothers’ breast milk, air, land, desperate attempts to secure energy from fracking which destroys groundwater and causes earthquakes, and so forth are signs of a hard-pressed planet. When we get right down to it, all of the profits that capitalism has generated over the centuries are probably due to capitalists not having to cover the full cost of their production. They passed the cost on to the environment and to third parties and pocketed the savings as profit.

    Update: Herman Daly notes that last year the British medical journal, Lancet, estimated the annual cost of pollution was about 6 % of the global economy whereas the annual global economic growth rate was about 2 percent, with the difference being about a 4% annual decline in wellbeing, not a 2 percent rise. In other words, we could already be in the situation where economic growth is uneconomical.
