LIFE WITH BIG BROTHER: Feds plan to track every car Obscure agency working on technology to monitor all vehicles

Howdy Y'all, The means to track vehicles in Australia is already an operational fact of life in the transport industry, strange little concrete pill-boxes have sprung-up all over the country in the past 5 years, interfaced with surveillance/communication satellites. My sister has a transceiver fitted to her car in Victoria. I have repeatedly tried to warn people all over this country about the true nature and pending sinister autocratic intent of the placement/imposition of the technology, but just like everything else I have tried to tell them, since arriving back in Australia 1975; generally speaking, I have wasted my breath!!  And to be perfectly candid about the whole thing; I just don't believe that people in general, are genuinely interested in the true solution to the global conspiracy, even when they are forced to acknowledge the palpable, and inescapable reality of it at all.

The truth of the matter is that, people in general, and for the most part, are fixated on preserving exactly what led to this current perilous global circumstance in the first place: viz., false and utterly corrupt, Satanically controlled pseudo religions, and more especially those purporting to be, and characterized as, Christian, [albeit, in caricature, at best]; maugre, the hybridized paraphrased liturgical clap-trap and religious drivel!!

Ultimately, until people recognize the reality of the primary causative nature of the aforesaid religious contagions, and the major role that this evil has played in the DUMBING - DOWN PROCESS; such people will not only be hopelessly ill-prepared, for what is sure to come, but, in the final analysis, doomed to failure, in all their futile attempts to achieve a positive, enduring and qualitative outcome!! Moreover, this also includes all philosophies i.e. all the insane self-deprecating theories of evolution etc.

Your friend and fellow-pilgrim in this life's journey for weal or woe,

LIFE WITH BIG BROTHER: Feds plan to track every car Obscure agency working on technology to monitor all vehicles

Thursday, October 7, 2004

------- © 2004 WorldNetDaily. com A little-known federal agency is planning a new monitoring program by which the government would track every car on the road by using onboard transceivers.

The agency, the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office, is part of the Department of Transportation. According to an extensive report in the Charlotte, N. C., Creative Loafing, the agency doesn't respond to public inquiries about its activity.

This is a Massacre, Not a War in Iraq

By Sam Hamod

Oct 5, 2004

This is a massacre, not a war in Iraq. The U.S. bombing Samarra, Fallujah, Baghdad and other cities, killing hundreds of civilians and calling them terrorists is like the massacres of the Native Americans during America's push westward.

In this case, it has to do with America's push eastward.

What is also troubling is that no major media outlet, no major politician--none are calling this what it is, an immoral, unmitigated killing of hundreds of Iraqi civilians every week.
Those who are experts in Arabic have claimed for months that the man alleged to be Zarqawi is not really Zarqawi because he does not have the real Zarqawi's Jordanian accent.

Not to mention that he was reported to have been killed two years ago in Afghanistan – JAH.

But, the American military, we are positive by now, has created this mythical Zarqawi to allow it to mercilessly attack Fallujah and punish its inhabitants because they withstood the American ground attack and chased the Americans out. Even today, the Fallujhans have said aloud to Al Jazeera and other outlets, that they will come out into the streets and fight the Americans -- but our country, America, is immoral and cowardly, every day attacking Fallujah by F16, Apache and long range cannon fire. In the process, killing hundreds of civilians, but as in the Viet Nam war, saying, "It's just collateral damage and we are not responsible for that."

Arctic sea ice declines again in 2004

Arctic sea ice declines again in 2004, according to U. of Colorado study (4 Oct 2004)

Researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have found that the extent of Arctic sea ice, the floating mass of ice that covers the Arctic Ocean, is continuing its rapid decline. The latest satellite information indicates the September 2004 sea ice extent was 13.4 percent below average, a reduction in area nearly twice the size of Texas.

Prison without trial 'justified'

Jailing suspected terrorists without trial is an "appropriate response" to the post-11 September terrorist threat, the House of Lords has heard. Attorney General Lord Goldsmith QC, representing the Home Office, said the measures are justifed and protect the rights of suspects and UK residents.

Black pope pushing for NWO

Peace be upon you all,

I was browsing through information regarding Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, the Supreme General of Jesuits, allegedly the most powerful man in the world, and found a relatively new interview (from 2003), where he [once again] states they are trying to achieve the NWO:-

[ ]

A link to another article about the Black Pope:

[ ]

From the beforementioned interview:-

-- cut here --

Q - Is there a political, social, and cultural alternative to the new international world order which emerged after September 11, 2001, and is being established in the new political realignment of the powerful nations

- the United States, the European Union, Russia, Japan - and the great and not so obvious powers?

A - As result of the attack carried out on September 11 th , large-scale violence has become more painful, inhumane and unjust. This has triggered a distressing spiral of attacks and counterattacks, which are bringing about considerable material losses, the weakening of human rights, and above all, indiscriminate deaths. Out of these physical and moral ruins, a new world order should emerge. That is what we thought after experiencing the last World War, but the facts have belied the hopes we then had. That makes it difficult to dream of a new international order this time. However, we must all strive to define it and make it come true. For us, Christians, the message of fraternity and solidarity to which the Lord summons us in the Gospel is the primary incentive driving us to work for a more humane world -and hence, for a world that is more divine- one which goes beyond merely political structures. It is comforting that despite the reserve shown by certain important nations, the United Nations is recognized as an important political alternative.

-- cut here --

Obviously, their plans are NOT working ("... Out of these physical and moral ruins, a new world order should emerge. That is what we thought after experiencing the last World war,..."). They have been trying to make their sickly NWO for a long time. Mr. Kolvenbach/Lord Vader (Father in Dutch) is here calling everyone to enforce their plans.

Their plans are to cause more misery and suffering, as they hope they can then emerge as the NWO, to rule over everybody. By inaction, everyone is helping them. We need to act, with both our mind and body.

By following The only Way and the Plan that WORKS, we can reduce the amount of time wasted on unnecessary suffering.

They have the financial wealth. We have God.

Thinking about the afterlife will help our lives right now,,1-118-1289774,00.html
[Article from The Times, Saturday 2nd October 2004]


“WHO will give life to the bones when they are decayed and rotten (Koran 36:78)?”

This was the critical question posed by many of the Makkan contemporaries of the Prophet Muhammad, who found his teaching about the Day of Resurrection (Yawm al-Qiyamah) incredible - and, frankly, unbelievable.

The Koran informs us that all the Prophets of God preached belief in the afterlife to their respective peoples.

Resistance to Backdoor Draft

By John Tiffany
Desperate for manpower with which to fight its projected 25-year “war on terrorism” in Iraq and elsewhere, the Bush administration has resorted to several measures just short of military conscription.

One of these is the “Stop Loss Program,” a scheme to force soldiers to remain in the service after their contractual obligation has been fulfilled.

Another idea is to reactivate what is called the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR). But both programs are encountering resistance from the GIs. As reported in The Army Times, about 30 percent of the IRR soldiers who have been called to active duty failed to report for mobilization.

The IRR is a manpower pool in the Ready Reserve. It consists primarily of individuals who have had training and have served previously in the “Active” component or the Selected Reserve and have some period of a military obligation remaining.

IRR soldiers are not part of a reserve unit, do not get paid and do not attend monthly reserve training. These soldiers have completed their active duty enlistment but are within eight years of when they entered the military. They can be recalled to duty if needed.

The Army's recent call-up of 5,600 soldiers from the IRR emphasizes the demands the administration's poor planning has placed on America's most important military resource—our troops. These soldiers, who have completed their active duty enlistment but are within eight years of when they entered the military, must now leave their jobs and families behind and mobilize for active duty. Whether there will be more call-ups is anyone's guess.

Many former soldiers, however, have submitted papers for “delay and exemption” consideration, claiming personal and professional matters are
preventing them from showing up.


A case in point is Master Sgt. Luis Jaime Trevino, 57, who is afflicted with skin cancer, is partially deaf and suffers from high blood pressure. Uncle Sam still wants him mobilized for Operation Iraqi Freedom.

When he got his orders to report to active duty, “I was very shocked,” Trevino said. Though Trevino is willing to serve again, he wonders why the military wants him. “I'm honored to go, but I'm disabled and I'm too old,” he said. “If I do not execute these orders, I go to jail.”

Reservists up to the age of 60 are being activated, said Public Affairs Specialist Julia Collins of the Human Resources Command in St. Louis.
“I know many guys who are in that position,” she said. “It's not unusual.”

More than 1,000 IRR members submitted “delay and exemption” packets containing documentation verifying their situation. The leading reasons IRR soldiers request delays and exemptions are: medical causes or disabilities; administrative mix-ups; financial hardship; being sole caretaker for children or elderly parents and completing higher education.

Essential reading: Open letter to the Publisher and President of The Chronicle

From: Dstacey [donald [dot] stacey [at] comcast [dot] net]

Subject: Essential reading !
Ms. Guinnane's letter arrived by email. If you haven't read it, please do so. Carefully. And take it very seriously. This country is in jeopardy and you and your fellow journalists bear much of the blame.  By hiding or distorting the truth about many important events and issues, you have created delusion after delusion. When one attempts to say "Press Watchdog" or "All the news fit to print" now, it evokes a gag reflex. We need some heros in yo

Dear Mr. Falk:

Despite my current address, I am old San Francisco.  My family on both sides goes back to the 1850s.  I know what the spirit of San Francisco used to be, and should be still.  I was there in the seventies when you, yes, your very own Chronicle, exposed the CIA as being the biggest dope running organization in the world.  It was, in my view, your finest hour.  Because it's true, you know. I am acquainted with pilots who flew for Air America, who were flying illicit heroin into this country on behalf of the CIA.  It was known in certain circles but no one had the guts to expose it, save you.  What a hero newspaper!  At least, back then, before you succumbed to a corporate buy-out.

The Conspiracy Central Tracker

Conspiracy Central - Bittorrent-Tracker

Conspiracy/Political related torrents ONLY



What is Bittorrent?

BitTorrent is a protocol designed for transferring files. It is peer-to-peer in nature, as users connect to each other directly to send and receive portions of the file. However, there is a central server (called a tracker) which coordinates the action of all such peers. The tracker only manages connections, it does not have any knowledge of the contents of the files being distributed, and therefore a large number of users can be supported with relatively limited tracker bandwidth. The key philosophy of BitTorrent is that users should upload (transmit outbound) at the same time they are downloading (receiving inbound.) In this manner, network bandwidth is utilized as efficiently as possible. BitTorrent is designed to work better as the number of people interested in a certain file increases, in contrast to other file transfer protocols.

Economic Collapse Being "Set Up"



I have been telling Americans for the past 14 years what is coming, but few will listen because Americans are too afraid of the truth. They don't want to know what's just over the horizon. They want their material comforts and fun times. A recent article was published that must be read by everyone (here ). Carolyn Lochhead has laid it out in frightening detail - all the numbers of what is going to happen in four short years when the baby boomers retire - 77 million of them. The numbers in Ms. Lochhead's article are accurate. There is no money in the U.S. Treasury to fund those numbers . The borrowing by Congress to fund their immoral and unconstitutional wars, UN dues, 18% of the IMFs budget, billions in corporate welfare, trillions in foreign "aid," all these social welfare programs and basic government functions continues to rack up debt at a rate of $1.69 BILLION dollars a day from an empty treasury. Quite a trick.

The Heraldic Symbolism of the Presidential Seal and the American Coat-of-Arms.

...The Eagle on the American Coat-of-Arms; which is very different from the heraldic-eagles (which are often two-headed) used by other nations; is the Emblem of Dan, from whom the Danes and Irish are descended and who have intermingled in America with their Anglo-Saxon brothers from the tribe of Joseph/Manasseh, whose Olive-branch and Arrows the Eagle holds firmly and safely in its claws...

Air Force pursuing antimatter weapons

Air Force pursuing antimatter weapons
Program was touted publicly, then came official gag order
- Keay Davidson, Chronicle Science Writer
Monday, October 4, 2004

The U.S. Air Force is quietly spending millions of dollars investigating ways to use a radical power source -- antimatter, the eerie "mirror" of ordinary matter -- in future weapons.

The most powerful potential energy source presently thought to be available to humanity, antimatter is a term normally heard in science-fiction films and TV shows, whose heroes fly "antimatter-powered spaceships" and do battle with "antimatter guns."

911 - in Plane Site


Please note that does not have the time to investigate the details of the 911 event. I´ve gathered various articles on the topic, and many may contain false information, even information designed to discredit the whole 911-truth movement.

The more important thing is to see the whole picture, and that we have been enslaved by the filthy rich elite/illuminati.

The Only Way to defeat the satanic New World Order, the elite who are behind the 911 event, is The Plan;


"A honey pot, in intelligence jargon, is a tempting source of information or 'dangle' that is set out to lure intended victims into a trap. Ultimately the honey pot is violently and maliciously discredited so as to destroy the credibility of anything stuck to it by association." (Michael Ruppert, "Crossing the Rubicon," p. 184)

From Dave vonKleist, co-host of The Power Hour radio program & writer/producer of the album Will Someone Listen, and William Lewis, producer & director of American Freedom News, TruNews and Police State comes a full length documentary presented in a modern, stylish TV newsmagazine format. "In Plane Site" uses news footage from all of the major news sources in an in-depth analysis which shows that what was originally reported on the morning of September 11, 2001 is not what has become the official story of that day. Eyewitness accounts and live video feeds told the real story of 911 and they are presented now for the first time as evidence of the largest cover-up in modern day history. With the pounding force of a sledgehammer you will find yourself horrified and astonished at the shear scope of the largest transgressions ever carried out against the people of the United States and indeed... of the entire world. Powerful and convincing footage, shown only once, and never seen again. . . Until Now

Pressure Groups and Censorship in Israel/Palestine

Alison Weir
Founder and Executive Director of If Americans Knew Censored
2005: The Top 25 Censored Stories Consortium; September 15, 2004

The most monumental cover-up in media history may be the one I'm about to describe. In my entire experience with American journalism, I have never found anything as extreme, sustained, and omnipresent.

Three and a half years ago, when the current Palestinian uprising began, I started to look into Israel and Palestine. I had never paid much attention to this issue before and so ­ unlike many people ­ I knew I was completely uninformed about it. I had no idea that I was pulling a loose piece of thread that would steadily unravel, until nothing would ever be quite as it had been before.

When I listened to news reports on this issue, I noticed that I was hearing a great deal about Israelis and very little about Palestinians. I decided to go to the Internet to see what would turn up, and discovered international reports about Palestinian children being killed daily, often shot in the head, hundreds being injured, eyes being shot out. 1 And yet little of all this was appearing in NPR reports, the New York Times, or the San Francisco Chronicle.

Iraq: The Massacres Continue as "Democracy-Building"

"With all the vacillations of policy since the current incumbents [Bush's gang] first took office in 1981, one guiding principle remains stable: the Iraqi people must not rule Iraq". Noam Chomsky, TomDispatch

By Ghali Hassan

09/26/04 "ICH" The indiscriminate slaughter of Iraqi citizens in Fallujah, Najaf, Baghdad, Tel Afar, Kut and other Iraqi cities, the outrageous treatment of Iraqi prisoners of war and civilian detainees, and the destruction of the nation of Iraq have not registered in the Moral consciousness of the "civilised" Western world.

The US and its "coalition" alleged that its moral "messianic mission" is to promote and "build" democracy and end dictatorships around the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. The US atrocities in Latin America and other parts of the world produced corrupt and violent dictatorships. America's invasion of Iraq is colonial occupation and anti-democracy. The Iraqi people have only seen the massacres of their fellow citizens and the destruction of their nation.

information - coincidence

Message intended for Tasmanians.
BUT it contains information of concern to the population of the world.  
A mass murder took place in Tasmania back in 1996, dubbed the Port Arthur Massacre (PAM), it preceded legislation, previously drawn up, but not put before the Federal Parliament prior to the PAM.  Following PAM, the legislation was passed into Law designed to disarm law abiding Australians. If this situation has any similiralities to other horrific events there is no coincidence.  The following will be of great value to those around the world still capable, and practicing, independent thought.  Port Arthur is an isolated place on a peninsula with one road in and out, the road is capable of being closed by an existing swing bridge.   Regards, Joe Bryant.

The official version is that Martin Bryant, (no relation that I know of), acting alone, was the lone gunman at Port Arthur in 1996.  Below are but a few anomalies which make the official version of the story hard to believe.

A few of the ANOMOLIES

1.  On the Sunday morning, 28th April, 1996, just hours before the murders, ten of the senior people at Port Arthur were sent  many  miles  away, up the Tasmanian east coast for a two-day seminar with no agenda and no visiting speakers.    One of the managers has spoken publicly about this unprecedented 'seminar' which kept them out of the way and safe.

2. Just before the shootings, the only two policeman stationed some miles away were called even further away on a wild goose chase. They were sent to the Coal Mine at Salt Water River, to investigate a drug stash removing them from any possibility of getting to Port Arthur ins hurry.     Had one of the two policemen remained at Dunalley, he could have closed the swing bridge to prevent anyone, e.g. the gunmen, from leaving the peninsula by road.

3.  BIG MORTUARY TRUCK :  Shortly before the massacre, a specially-built 22 body capacity mortuary truck was built. It attracted some derision at the time, but it was effectively used at Port Arthur.  Later it was advertised for sale on the internet.

Code to exploit Windows graphics flaw now public

By Robert Lemos, CNET
Thursday, September 23 2004 11:31 AM

A sample program hit the Internet on Wednesday, showing by example how malicious coders could compromise Windows computers by using a flaw in the handling of a widespread graphics format by Microsoft's software.

Security professionals expect the release of the program to herald a new round of attacks by viruses and Trojan horses incorporating the code to circumvent security on Windows computers that have not been updated. The flaw, in the way Microsoft's software processes JPEG graphics, could allow a program to take control of a victim's computer when the user opens a JPEG file.

"Within days, you'll likely see (attacks) using this code as a basis," said Vincent Weafer, senior director of security response for antivirus-software company Symantec. "This is dangerous in a sense that everyone processes JPEG files to some degree."

The program is the latest example of "exploit code," a sample that shows others how to create attack programs that can take advantage of a particular flaw. Such code preceded the Sasser worm by two days and the MSBlast worm by nine days.

Scandal over Bush's military records teaches foreign policy lesson
 Here's the lesson that Americans should learn as a result of the controversy over George Bush's service in the National Guard. When governments wage futile, unnecessary wars -- such as Vietnam and Iraq -- young Americans will try to avoid them.

 The scandal isn't that so many Americans tried to avoid going to Vietnam; it's that their government tried to send them there in the first place. The fact that Bush is sending troops to Iraq proves he hasn't learned that lesson.

Have 1,000 U.S. Souls Died for Oil?

Have 1,000 U.S. Souls Died for Oil?
by Ivan Eland

 The tragic milestone of 1,000 U.S. deaths in the Iraqi quagmire should cause introspection about why the United States really went to war and whether it has been worth it. While the Bush administration’s public justifications never really added up, evidence exists that there was a hidden agenda behind the invasion of Iraq: securing oil.

 Saddam never had a collaborative relationship with al Qaeda. Even if Saddam’s nuclear weapons program had made more progress than his crude attempt at a restart-the worst case-it was known to be less advanced than those of North Korea and Iran. As for giving expensive nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons to unpredictable terrorist groups: Iraq was less of a state-sponsor of terrorism than Iran or Syria and didn?t sponsor groups that focused their attacks on the United States. After no “weapons of mass destruction” or Iraqi links with al Qaeda were found, the Bush administration’s fallback rationale for war was liberating oppressed peoples and creating democracy that would spread throughout the Middle East. Of course, this social engineering project also could have been attempted in Syria, Iran, or with U.S. Gulf allies, such as Saudi Arabia, albeit probably no more successfully than in Iraq.

 So if the many and shifting stated justifications for the invasion fall apart under scrutiny, the average citizen is left to search for a legitimate secret reason for what has now become a deadly debacle. More evidence exists to support the unspoken theory of securing oil, than other covert motives. Some have alleged the war was a neo-conservative plan to take out a potential enemy of Israel. There may be some truth to this argument. But after making peace with the most menacing Arab nation-Egypt-and purportedly possessing hundreds of nuclear weapons, Israel is now relatively secure from existential threats. Besides, most experts agreed that Iran was closer to being a nuclear threat to Israel than Iraq. Syria was a bigger conventional threat than Saddam’s regime because of its contiguous border with the Jewish state.

Photos and Videos From Inside New York's Pier 57 Detention Center

pier 57

On 31 August 2004, during the Republican National Convention in New York City, around 1,200 people were arrested and sent to a makeshift detention/processing center, which used to house city buses, at Pier 57. (Over 1,800 were arrested during the entire RNC.)

Images from inside the facility are rare. The photos and videos featured here come from Jacob Richards and Connie Murillo, who were arrested that day. A couple of these photos were posted to NYC Indymedia, but Richards and Murillo have kindly allowed The Memory Hole to post more photos and several videos....
