This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time

More and more people are waking up to the lies we’ve been told . . . -LW


I will remember friends and comrades in private next year, as the solemnity of remembrance has been twisted into a justification for conflict

Over the last 10 years the sepia tone of November has become blood-soaked with paper poppies festooning the lapels of our politicians, newsreaders and business leaders. The most fortunate in our society have turned the solemnity of remembrance for fallen soldiers in ancient wars into a justification for our most recent armed conflicts. The American civil war’s General Sherman once said that “war is hell”, but unfortunately today’s politicians in Britain use past wars to bolster our flagging belief in national austerity or to compel us to surrender our rights as citizens, in the name of the public good.

Still, this year I shall wear the poppy as I have done for many years. I wear it because I am from that last generation who remember a war that encompassed the entire world. I wear the poppy because I can recall when Britain was actually threatened with a real invasion and how its citizens stood at the ready to defend her shores. But most importantly, I wear the poppy to commemorate those of my childhood friends and comrades who did not survive the second world war and those who came home physically and emotionally wounded from horrific battles that no poet or journalist could describe.

However, I am afraid it will be the last time that I will bear witness to those soldiers, airmen and sailors who are no more, at my local cenotaph. From now on, I will lament their passing in private because my despair is for those who live in this present world. I will no longer allow my obligation as a veteran to remember those who died in the great wars to be co-opted by current or former politicians to justify our folly in Iraq, our morally dubious war on terror and our elimination of one’s right to privacy.

Come 2014 when the government marks the beginning of the first world war with quotes from Rupert Brooke, Rudyard Kipling and other great jingoists from our past empire, I will declare myself a conscientious objector. We must remember that the historical past of this country is not like an episode of Downton Abbey where the rich are portrayed as thoughtful, benevolent masters to poor folk who need the guiding hand of the ruling classes to live a proper life.

I can tell you it didn’t happen that way because I was born nine years after the first world war began. I can attest that life for most people was spent in abject poverty where one laboured under brutal working conditions for little pay and lived in houses not fit to kennel a dog today. We must remember that the war was fought by the working classes who comprised 80% of Britain’s population in 1913.

This is why I find that the government’s intention to spend £50m to dress the slaughter of close to a million British soldiers in the 1914-18 conflict as a fight for freedom and democracy profane. Too many of the dead, from that horrendous war, didn’t know real freedom because they were poor and were never truly represented by their members of parliament.

My uncle and many of my relatives died in that war and they weren’t officers or NCOs; they were simple Tommies. They were like the hundreds of thousands of other boys who were sent to their slaughter by a government that didn’t care to represent their citizens if they were working poor and under-educated. My family members took the king’s shilling because they had little choice, whereas many others from similar economic backgrounds were strong-armed into enlisting by war propaganda or press-ganged into military service by their employers.

For many of you 1914 probably seems like a long time ago but I’ll be 91 next year, so it feels recent. Today, we have allowed monolithic corporate institutions to set our national agenda. We have allowed vitriol to replace earnest debate and we have somehow deluded ourselves into thinking that wealth is wisdom. But by far the worst error we have made as a people is to think ourselves as taxpayers first and citizens second.

Next year, I won’t wear the poppy but I will until my last breath remember the past and the struggles my generation made to build this country into a civilised state for the working and middle classes. If we are to survive as a progressive nation we have to start tending to our living because the wounded: our poor, our underemployed youth, our hard-pressed middle class and our struggling seniors shouldn’t be left to die on the battleground of modern life.

Financial War Games or Cover for Something Else?

Banks in the US and UK are planning a disaster recovery drill on Monday. What do you think they’re not telling us? Will this be a re-boot of the banks? Will this be the cover story for cleaning-out everybody’s bank account(s), like they did in Cyprus? -LW

Britain and the US will stage the first transatlantic simulation of a crisis in a large bank on Monday, in a sign of growing confidence that the authorities can now deal with the failure of large institutions.

All of the main players who would need to be involved in a failure of companies such as Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Barclays or HSBC will gather in Washington DC to make sure they would know what to do, who to call and how to inform the public.

The move reflects the authorities’ view that they are getting close to solving the “too big to fail” problem, even for cross-border banks, outside a full-blown system-wide crisis.

George Osborne, UK chancellor, announced he would be taking part in the “war game” along with Jack Lew, US Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen, head of the Federal Reserve, Mark Carney, Bank of England governor and other senior officials from both countries.

The simulation will not mimic any particular banks but the authorities will run through the procedures they would follow if a large UK bank with US operations failed and those for a significant US bank with a British presence. Unlike domestic war games held before the financial crisis, Mr Osborne pledged to publicise the results.

Interview #2 with Capt. Mark Richards on Project Camelot [video]

If you liked the first interview, you’ll like this one, related by Kerry from notes she and Richards’ wife, Jo Ann, made at the prison.

I must say, he shares a lot of bizarre stuff, and much that disagrees with other information we’ve been given, but take it for what it’s worth.  ~ BP

Published on 1 Aug 2014

This is my 2nd interview with CAPTAIN MARK RICHARDS. This contains my recall backed by handwritten notes from on site in Vacaville Prison with the help of his wife, Jo Ann Richards.

I spent nearly 4 hours this time talking with him and have carefully chronicled his testimony to the best of my ability as closely to his own words as possible under the circumstances.

The subject matter covers the Secret Space Program and our relations with various ET races both on and off planet. Our current level of technology and the ET connection between governments around the world and the military.

I will be posting a copy of his recent letter detailing the location of the current INTERSTELLAR SPACE CENTERS on Planet Earth and also the lists of questions along with a copy of our notes taken during the interview.

Comic Relief: Queen Elizabeth the Pedophile Stars in her Own Movie [video]

I really needed this. Thanks to those who shared it. The cabal hates it when we laugh at them, and sometimes if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.

There will be plenty of time for anger when the world is acquainted with the truth of this monstrous tale. 

“The Queen Is Named As Part Of An International Paedophile Ring by Bill Maloney.”  Clever video. 

If you read some of the comments beneath the video, you’ll see that not everyone knows the truth. Yet.  They don’t WANT to believe it, of course, but in short order they’ll have no choice.  

Hopefully they’ll do some research and land on the ITCCS web site.

BTW, you may have heard that Facebook is playing games with Kevin Annett and Alfred Webre and the postings. All sorts of blocking, etc. going on. 

And that’s a clue right there to the authenticity of the claims. If it was all lies and disinfo, they would have no issues sharing their latest updates.  It’ll all get sorted.  ~ BP

Trial of the Century Launched?

E2 with Pope John Paul II in traditional dress, since abandoned in favor of regular wear.

Thanks Alfred for the heads up. 

I feel like ‘VeteransToday’ has pulled all the stops to getting the truth out there about so MANY things. This piece, like many others, is top drawer.

The public is GOING to learn of this inconvenient truth whether they like it or not. The peds, the feds—they’re ALL going down. It is time.

Mass Child Murder Trial Launched

Justice and Safety for Children?

As we truly get into the meat and bones of the coming trial, I continue to be amazed by the sheer courage of the principals involved.  It is also clear that humanity has had enough of the predation of its children, for it is a Predator of the deepest evil that we face.

I would assume that the overwhelming avalanche of evidence regarding the predation of children by individual clergy in the Catholic church worldwide is fairly well known.

Yet, there are still individuals who would stop this effort, this arrow aimed at the jugular of the satanically-driven harvesting and sacrifice of children. That, I find to be stunning. “Stop Kevin Annett!” they cry.

The documented evidence over decades now is that children are being ravaged by the Catholic church, and then the deeds are being buried (please don’t make me tired by ignoring the legal cases.) Let’s stop the man who is trying to flush all of it to the surface once and for all. This is some of the response.

Rev. Kevin Annett

The pedophilia in the UK leads right back to the royal family but, hey, let’s stop Kevin Annett! Well, good. Well done, because you are all telling on yourselves, and I think that’s a great thing.

Those we were wondering about… whose side are they really on… are answering that question, loud and clear. I’ll take it.

We’re not falling for it, this diversion telling us to concentrate on hating the messenger, no matter how smooth or velvety the delivery. Children are being predated by this entity and it will be brought up into the light and stopped.  Meanwhile, here is the latest release from the source in Brussels.

And, by the way, it has not escaped anyone’s attention that all of a sudden there are massive protests breaking out in Brussels.

Photos, Video and Multiple Reports of UFO Activity in North Devon, UK

Thanks to Extraterrestrials.ning.com for sharing.  Excellent video.  This would have been Nov. 23-24 weekend.  Looks like our friends upstairs from the video footage.  ~ BP

UFO Picture From North Devon, England Sparks A Flurry Of Reports

Last weekend, photographer Rob Tibbles, of the North Devon Journal, snapped some images at the Fullabrook wind farm in the southwest region of the UK. When he later examined his pictures, he saw that he had captured a mysterious object in the sky above the turbines.

The grey-colored, oval-shaped UFO, isolated in the above close-up image, becomes even more interesting when viewed from the original perspective in which it was taken.

The following composite photo, provided to The Huffington Post by the North Devon Journal, clearly shows the object at three different magnifications.

The Journal contacted Chivenor’s 22 search and rescue division — a British military base operated by the Royal Marines — who suggested a training exercise they were engaged in Saturday may have generated UFO reports.

After the image was published in the North Devon Journal, area citizens began to report their own unusual aerial sightings in the past week.

— Matt Naughton told the Journal that, while “Driving to Torrington on Thursday night, I saw strange bright lights in the sky and the car had flashes of blue in it. Very creepy!”
— Erica Whiteley reported her husband had seen something unusual above Fullabrook: “He spotted a strange bright object in the sky on Friday evening at about 5 p.m., looking from Swimbridge across to Barnstaple in the direction of the wind turbines.”

— Jacqueline Leighton Boyce, of Dulverton, reported to the Journal that “I too saw a strange, very large bright thing in the sky on Saturday, Nov. 23 about dusk time.” Boyce managed to film the light and then a friend took the video and slowed it down.

Here is the slowed-down video taken by Jacqueline Leighton Boyce:  PLEASE SEE THE VIDEO AT THE SOURCE LINK due to copyright

Assuming the original image and video shown here haven’t been tampered with and something very unusual — and still unexplained — was captured in the sky over Southwest England — the Journal has solicited people to send in details of what they saw and/or photographed.
