He will be speaking, in a personal capacity, on “Corporate Media, The Trade Unions, War and 9/11”. Bracken is one of the leading trade unionists in the world, who has publicly challenged the US official explanation of 9/11, and the political use of “terrorism” by governments internationally to escalate the attacks on democratic rights and repression of the labor movement and working people around the world.

MUSE bring attention to the “Map of the Problematique”

Monday, December 20th, 2010
Track 4 off “Black Holes & Revelations”

This song title is a reference to a concept created by a think-tank called The Club of Rome. In One Hundred Pages for the Future, Italian scholar & industrialist, and co-Founder of the Globalist “think-tank” The Club of Rome, Aurelio Peccei, wrote:

“Along with the concept of the limits to growth, The Club of Rome had proposed that of the world problematique. For there exists in the world a dreadful mixture of problems, whose roots and ramifications we have not managed to grasp, and from which humanity cannot escape.”

Consider the lyric from the song, “Why can’t we see, that when we bleed we bleed the same?” when reading this exert from Peccei’s book:

“We do not yet possess a sufficiently clear understanding of how all these elements are linked to be able to attack the problematique as a whole. For this reason, each problem is dealt with more or less in isolation, within its own terms, even though these may be only symptoms that we treat to no avail. Consequently, the problematique merely becomes more complicated and the general situation deteriorates still further, giving rise to that endemic state of disorder, insecurity, and crisis which The Club of Rome has called the predicament of humankind.”

In addition to this, the opening lyric, “Fear and panic in the air,” while setting the tone for the “Problematique,” may also be a reference to Mars, in that the red planet’s two moons are named Phobos and Deimos, who were the Greek gods of Fear and Panic. Such a connection would fit in with numerous references to Mars in the album, including the album cover.The song is also as the trailer for the 2006 apocalyptic film Children of Men.

The World Problematique is further defined here by the Club of Rome:
http://www.clubofrome.org/about/world_problematique.php:

“World Problematique is a concept created by the Club of Rome to describe the set of the crucial problems – political, social, economic, technological, environmental, psychological and cultural – facing humanity. The complexity of the world problematique lies in the high level of mutual interdependence of all these problems on the one hand, and in the long time it often takes until the impact of action and reaction in this complex system becomes visible.”

The Club of Rome based the 1972 book Limits to Growth, on solving the “World Problematique”:

Quoted is from The Limits to Growth: The 30-year update

“Commissioned by a think-tank called The Club of Rome, an international group of businessmen, statesmen, and scientists, The Limits to Growth was compiled by a team of experts from the U.S. and several foreign countries. Using system dynamics theory and a computer model called “World3,” the book presented and analysed 12 scenarios that showed different possible patterns – and environmental causes – of World development over two centuries, 1900 to 2100.”

The Limits to Growth report sold more than 12 million copies in some 30 languages worldwide.

An Australian Link
In 2008, Graham Turner at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia published a paper called “A Comparison of `The Limits to Growth` with Thirty Years of Reality”. It examined the past thirty years of reality with the predictions made in 1972 and found that changes in industrial production, food production and pollution are all in line with the book’s predictions of economic and societal collapse in the 21st century.

The Club of Rome (http://www.clubofrome.org)
In their Own Words

“I consider the Club of Rome first of all an exciting adventure of the spirit – the exploration and discovery of man’s condition in this age of his global empire…”
- Aurelio Peccei, co-Founder of the Club of Rome and an Italian scholar & industrialist

“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
- Alexander King, co-Founder of the Club of Rome and Scottish scientist, as quoted in his 1991 book, The First Global Revolution

“The threat of environmental crisis will be the ‘international disaster key’ that will unlock the New World Order.”
- Mikhail Gorbachev, Club of Rome Honorary member, former President of the Soviet Union, as quoted in “A Special Report: The Wildlands Project Unleashes Its War On Mankind”, 1996, p. 5.

“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”
- Prof. Stephen Schneider, who was a lead author of many IPCC reports and member of the Club of Rome before his recent death.

Other well-known members of the Club of Rome:
Al Gore, David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Maurice Strong, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Prince Philippe of Belgium, Dona Sophia (Queen of Spain)
Current World politicians include the PM of Spain and PM of India, and former World politicians who are members include Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and Henry Kissinger.

tt30 – the young think tank of the Club of Rome
From: http://tt30.typepad.com/about.html

“tt30 is composed of independent men and women around the age of 30 (therefore ‘tt30’) who are concerned about the problems of today and committed to work towards the solution of these challenges. tt30, from the perspective of a new generation, works out an agenda of topics that we regard as central for the future development of the world (what we title the Web of the Problematique) and indicates possible ways how to meet those challenges of tomorrow.”

From a message to the Second tt30 Annual Conference from HRH Prince El Hassan , President of the Club of Rome, on the 11th of September 2002:

“The map of the problematique as charted in Hamburg last year will therefore be regularly reviewed and updated. This map needs to be shared with others – perhaps posted on the tt30 website.”

Muse Urges its Fans to take The Red Pill

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

Paul Joseph Watson
From: InfoWars.com

Alternative rock megaband Muse have urged their millions of listeners to take the “red pill” and reject the babylon system of mindless popular culture and meaningless music – by inviting people to visit Alex Jones’ Prison Planet.com and Infowars.com via links on the band’s official website.

Muse’s links page features their own Facebook and MySpace pages as well as some fan sites, but a special section contains just four links, two of which lead to Prison Planet and Infowars.

Why does any of this matter? Because even before the release of their latest blockbuster The Resistance, Muse had sold 10 million albums worldwide and won countless awards, including five MTV Europe Music Awards, five Q Awards, eight NME Awards, two BRIT awards and four Kerrang! Awards. Muse’s The Resistance album is the culmination of their increasingly public vocal opposition to the new world order agenda, and has topped the album charts in no less than 19 countries worldwide.

The fact that one of the most popular bands on the planet right now is using its gargantuan public platform to encourage its listeners to educate themselves about the agenda for world government shows how deeply woven into the fabric of society the real resistance is becoming.

And it’s not as if Muse are some Johnny-come-lately outfit who are exploiting a “resistance” gimmick simply to make profits. They’ve been on board with the genuine resistance from the start – it’s been four years since we reported on how Muse front man Matt Bellamy wore a Terrorstorm T-shirt during a headlining gig at the Reading festival that was witnessed by millions watching on television.

As we have previously documented, music and popular culture is the most powerful weapon the elite wield in keeping the masses distracted, dumbed down and morally bankrupt. Amoral, vacuous and nihilistic drivel from the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and Katy Perry keeps young women obsessed with meaningless drivel while thinking that it’s mandatory to dress and act like a whore to be accepted by their peers, while the endless parade of moronic hip-hop artists, people like Puff Daddy, Kanye West, Jay-Z, 50-cent and Lil Wayne brainwash young men into thinking that acting like a superficial, moronic, money-obsessed, sex-obsessed thug who wears their pants round their knees and treats women like pieces of meat is cool.

That’s why it’s so refreshing to see a truly talented band like Muse singing about important and cutting edge issues and being successful in the process, reaching millions of young people who might otherwise have been trapped in the babylon system of popular culture that is warping young people’s minds and turning them into depressed, disenchanted, powerless, and soulless creatures whose manipulated mindlessness prevents them from even being able to think straight amidst the ceaseless din of the psychological attack they are under from music and popular culture in general.

The new world order attack on our society is about more than politics, money, and power – it’s about stealing the minds of our own children and filling them with self-destructive, humanist, post-modernist, spiritually devoid crap that destroys their innocence, their hope, their strength of character and their moral compass.

Featured below is Muse’s video for Uprising, which has received over 16.5 million views on You Tube. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the message behind the song.

Matt Bellamy speaking to Kerrang! Magazine, late 2006:

“9/11 is clearly an inside job, there’s massive evidence that suggests that it was allowed to happen, or even worse, deliberately made to happen…”

“… False flag operations have been going on time and time again in our history: there was a document called ‘Project for the New American Century’, which was made by neo-Con (right wing) writers in the ’90s who supplied most of the agenda that Bush is putting into place now, which says clearly, ‘We need a Pearl-Harbor-level event so we have an excuse to invade the Middle East’…”

“Everything that we’re living through is as a result of what happened on 9/11, so it’s fundamental to our history to make sure we know what happened.”

Bellamy made these comments on the back of mainstream media attention he received in the UK and around the World by wearing a t-shirt with the word TERROR STORM written on the back of it at the Reading Festival of 2006: http://prisonplanet.com/articles/august2006/270806rockfrontman.htm

“Go to Google Video, type in Terror Storm and you’ll find a nice little surprise. It will shed some light on world affairs, put it that way. I rather point you in the direction then preach about it myself,” said Bellamy.

R.I.P Janette MacKinlay, February 26, 1948 – December 9, 2010

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Original post: 911blogger.com
By Carol Brouillet

Janette’s website: http://www.janettemackinlay.com

It is with a very heavy heart that I feel compelled to share the news with the Truth Movement that our beloved Janette MacKinlay, 9/11 survivor, activist, organizer, author, artist passed away yesterday morning. We will always miss her.

Janette's book- Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11

Janette lived across the street from the World Trade Center in 2001 and was not merely a witness to the attacks, but survived, along with her fellow artist and companion, Jim Lecce, when their artloft’s windows were broken and their apartment filled with dust and debris when the World Trade Center tower came down. Janette’s book, Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11 is a vivid account of her experiences. She has told her story many times, in presentations, to radio, television, print media. Janette also changed as her story, and the larger story have continued to unfold over the years, granting her more and more insight into her own experience, that of other survivors, and victims’ family members, as well as a deeper understanding of the larger political realities that continue to be discovered by the truth movement. Janette’s evolution can be seen in her art and through her actions, over the years. Her story is a powerful one and I hope that someday a great filmmaker will be able to piece it together, right now it is scattered in many documentaries, many places, entwined with many other narratives. Janette was a very important bridge between many people whose lives were deeply changed by the events of September 11th.

September 11, 2001 - Janette MacKinlay in the dust near Ground Zero

I remember some things that she said again and again about the deafening noise of the towers collapse and the incredible silence in the aftermath (or maybe their ears actually were damaged and they did become literally deafened in the wake of the collapse). Janette, as well as many others suffered from post traumatic stress, in the aftermath, and she tried to heal herself through her artwork, the beautiful, gentle, ancient art of Ikebana, the Japanese art of floral arrangements. However, she knew that those immediately in the vicinity of the towers, who heard the noise, breathed the air, felt and were transformed to the marrow of their bones by an event which would forever haunt them.

When she was suddenly diagnosed with brain cancer last February, she knew instantly what the cause was – 9/11, the dust…

Dust at her apartment across the street from the WTC towers

Janette appears in the latest Loose Change documentary- Loose Change: 9/11 An American Coup, telling about how when she returned to her apartment to gather what valuables survived, not just the attack, but the looting that took place, she saved some of the dust and gave some to Professor Steven E. Jones when he realized that analysis of the dust would provide important clues into what really happened.

Janette moved back to her home in Oakland in 2001 and I only met her for the first time in 2005 when the 9/11 Commissioners were addressing the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. They are the ones who convinced Janette that they were lying and covering up the truth. I traded a copy of David Ray Griffin’s book- The New Pearl Harbour- Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 for a copy of her book. On that same day, my friend, Blaine Machan, who created the Deception Dollar gave me her name and phone number via e-mail. She was distributing some of our Deception Dollars at one of her art exhibitions.

I invited her to the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance meetings, and also persuaded her to become our treasurer that autumn. We became friends and worked together on many events and projects.

Another member of our group, who created the original http://www.sf911truth.org website also became a very good friend of Janette’s and they traveled together to New York City where she showed him where her old apartment was. By some miracle, the apartment had been renovated and was available again, and Janette and Jim decided to move back to New York City. So Janette became an amazing bridge between activists on the West Coast and activists on the East Coast, and helping and participating in, and organizing two major 9/11 Truth Conferences- The Revealing the Truth- Reclaiming the Future Conference in Chicago in 2006, and the 9/11 Accountability Conference in Arizona in 2007.

Janette had a beautiful home and was a wonderful hostess, and we had a lot of “mailing parties” at her home, as well as just “parties and celebrations” for many reasons (including to celebrate the wedding of Jim Hoffman and Victoria Ashley), visits of activists from other parts of the country, whom she often hosted at her home. She held a fundraiser there for the 9th Annual Northern California 9/11 Film Festival which was also a benefit for Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and NYCCAN.

She believed strongly in accountability and spent time in the office of Attorney-General Jerry Brown (our newly elected governor) to push him to look into and take on a new investigation into 9/11. She also approached Senator Barbara Boxer and others, and encouraged her peers to contact the media and put pressure on elected officials, as well. She had a tremendous amount of courage and heart, inspiring many people to take action. She was tremendously loyal, encouraging and supporting those who stuck their necks out to organize events, to speak, to take action.

Proud grandma with her one week old grandson, Huxley

She was proud of her two sons, Mark and Brian, and most delighted when her grandson, Huxley was born. She had planned to take care of Huxley two days a week, when suddenly one evening her speech center was impaired by the tumor and the hospital determined something was seriously wrong.

Many of us urged Janette to try some non-traditional treatments, but she had confidence in the medical profession and her sons who rushed to her side to help her through the initial biopsy, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy.

Janette sent me this photo entitling it "realism"

After the surgery, she suffered from aphasia (which limited her ability to talk, but she understood everything she heard). For awhile she surrounded herself with art, beauty, family, and friends, but she was drawn back to the Truth Movement, joined us to have dinner with Bob Bowman and his wife, Maggie, when they visited the Bay Area last summer. A stroke impaired the right side of her body and curtailed her ability to walk.
