On 27th January 2011, we read about the spook who claims he was 'brainwashed'.
Richard Curtis is a UK military intelligence specialist.
His wife, Fiananda, is a former military officer. (The spook who lost faith in his guru)
Rena Denton, also known as Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharma, is the 79-year-old boss of the 'cult' known as the Self Realization Meditation Centres movement.
Denton is described as a 'Master' who was 'asked by the Divine Power...to be a Guru in this age, to the many souls who are awakening and seeking Universal Truth, Unconditional Love and Wisdom, within and without'.
The 'cult' has 'sister centres' in Canada, the US, New Zealand and Australia.
Richard Curtis and his wife Fiananda joined the 'cult'.
They then donated their farmhouse and possessions to their leader, Rena Denton.
Richard Curtis now claims he he was 'brainwashed' and was 'unduly influenced' by the 'cult'.
Curtis left the 'cult' after discovering his wife was having an affair with another man.
A judge has now ruled that Curtis and his wife should get their house back.
In 2010, a doctor claimed he was brainwashed into handing over £750,000 to the 'cult'.
He lost a £2million damages claim.

China in the 1940s (multipletext.com/2009/9_china_1940s.htm) had a huge gap between rich and poor.
How do you explain the economic situation?
Parts of Detroit are like parts of Jakarta.
Here in Jakarta there is a large posh shopping mall.
But most of the visitors to the mall do not have the money to buy the goods on display.
For most people, whether in Detroit or in Jakarta, incomes are too low.
On 23 June 2010, in the Financial Times, Douglas Bruce explained that without some trickle-down effect, any recovery will be stillborn
Douglas Bruce explains that "over the past few decades, the top earners in banking and other sectors have been increasing their share of a finite cake...
"Going back a generation or two... it was still possible for a middle-class father to support a family of four, but it now takes two earners to maintain most families, and that at a lower standard of living..."

Is the situation today to be compared to that in France in 1789?
Norman Gash, at the National Review, 14 July 1989, wrote: Reflections on the revolution - French Revolution
(Norman Gash was a former Professor of Modern History at the University of St Andrews)
1. According to Norman Gash, in 1789 France was the largest, wealthiest, and most powerful state in Western Europe.
In 2010, the USA is said to be the most powerful state in the world.
2. Norman Gash asks: What reason was there for revolution in France in 1789?
Gash relates that, according to Napoleon, there was revolution because the middle class wanted more power for themselves and less power for the aristocrats.
It could be argued that, in the USA, the middle classes are getting restless. They see a corrupt elite enjoying too many privileges.
3. Gash points out that in France, in 1789, "the climate of opinion was rational, liberal, and optimistic, the monarchy not averse to reform, the aristocracy itself permeated by ideas of the Enlightenment."
Why then was there a bloody revolution?
Gash explains that the 'system' appeared to make reform difficult.
Edmund Burke said that "a state without the means of some change is without the means of its own conservation."
In the USA in 2010, the constitution appears not to be protecting the USA from disaster.
America's institutions seem incapable of preventing wars, discontent and hunger.
dictatorship of the proletariat,
and finally military despotism."
If there are to be dramatic changes in the USA, the end result might be military despotism under an American Napoleon.
Napoleon was a fascist.
He attempted the total military domination of continental Europe.
He tried to have a New World Order, or as Gash writes "a new international order".
5. According to Gash, the French Revolution, Napoleon's Empire and the 1815 Congress of Vienna "foreshadowed the Europe of the future."
That means both good things and bad things.
Americans seeking revolution should study Europe's history.
6. Gash implies that bloody revolution was not necessary to bring about change in Europe.
Even if the French Revolution had not taken place, "common sense suggests that the main lines of European evolution would have been much the same, though perhaps the pace might have been slower."Gash lists the products of European society which would have come about either by gradual evolution or by fast and bloody revolution:
A. Liberalism based on representative institutions.
B. Nationalism based on linguistic unity.
C. The rise of the sovereign state.
D. The centralization of administrative power at the expense of provincial.
E. The increasing responsibility of government for the welfare of its subjects.
F. The ability to mobilize a whole society for war.
G. military defeats in consequence giving rise to revolution and revolution to tyranny.
H. International conflicts followed by international institutions to preserve harmony.
America is changing.
The changes will be a mixture of good and bad.
The changes will happen, even without a revolution.
French Empire 1811
7. According to Gash, the French Revolution helped to shape European society in two notable ways.
A. Force was used to bring about change. "Liberalism and reform marched behind French bayonets."
The ideas of liberalism and reform had many of their origins in England.
B. The awakening of nationalism.
Gash writes that: "ideas that march behind bayonets are rarely popular; reform at the hands of a conqueror earns little gratitude. French rule brought not only enlightenment but hardship."
It was not long before there were nationalistic revolts against the French.
In Germany, later in the century, "Bismarck exploited the German national feeling first evoked by Napoleon I."
Any attempt by an American dictator to bring about a New World Order would result in nationalist revolts.

The Economist points out some of the problems facing China. (Asia's new aristocrats.)
1. China has 800,000 dollar millionaires.

In Corruption Threatens China's Future, Minxin Pei describes corruption in China.
Reportedly, in China, "roughly 10 percent of government spending, contracts, and transactions is estimated to be used as kickbacks and bribes, or simply stolen." (Corruption Threatens China’s Future.)
The Chinese are said to be the Jews of Asia.
And just as certain Jews are controversial in the USA, and in Russia, certain Chinese are controversial in Asia.

It would seem that the USA and Israel decided some time ago to topple Egypt's president Mubarak.
"The U.S. strategy for three decades ... has been to bet on Mubarak... But that cannot possibly be a smart bet for the next decade." - Elliott Abrams on 20 January 2011 (interview)
Abrams, a neo-con Zionist, was involved in Iran-Contra.
According to PressTV (Mossad behind Egypt church blast):
"Political experts believe that the US, the Israeli regime and Britain have crafted a long-term joint security program in the Middle East and North Africa...
"Part of the scenario is to divide Sudan into northern and southern parts, split Egypt into a Christian-populated country and a Muslim-populated one and trigger a new civil strife in Lebanon among Shias and Sunnis...
"The establishment of a non-Arab Christian government in the heart of Islamic Sudan will result in the Israeli regime infiltrating into the east bank of the river Nile, only to be a pain in the neck for Muslim nations in North Africa.
"After south Sudan is separated from the north, the Israeli regime will, thanks to its physical presence on the ground, take control of the water flow in the river and hold the 11 countries on both sides of the Nile to political ransom.
"Leaders in south of the African country had already announced they would establish broad political relations with Tel Aviv once they break away from the north.
"Another scenario on the West's agenda is to lay the groundwork for the formation of a Coptic government in Upper Nile in Egypt...
"Therefore, the recent scuffles between Muslims and Christians in Naj' Hammadi region in Qena governorate in southern Egypt as well as the blast at the Alexandria church are a prelude for the dangerous Western-engineered scenario to unfold in one of the key Islamic-Arab nations."

"The Suez Canal remains critical to the security of the Persian Gulf and its vast energy reserves, as well as to global trade.
"Egypt also maintains the region's largest and most powerful Arab military."
It seems that Obama would like to topple Egypt's President Mubarak, and replace him with someone more reliable.
The Pentagon wants the Egyptian military to help advance the US-Israeli agenda.
But the Egyptian military sees Israel as the enemy.
And Egypt has resisted sending troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. (US frustrated with Egypt military)
Israel would like to topple Mubarak, it seems.
Israel and Egypt have many ties.
13% of the Israeli army's civilian workforce are Egyptians. (Egypt and Israel, a souring relationship?)
Early in 2010, Egypt and Israel made a gas deal allowing Israel to buy the gas at prices lower than its market value.
However, more recently Egypt's Irrigation Minister dismissed the possibility that Egypt would supply Israel with water from the Nile. (Egypt and Israel, a souring relationship?)
On 20 December 2010 (ISRAEL DESTABILISING EGYPT) we learnt that Egypt arrested members of an Israeli spy ring within its borders.
Egypt claims the spies kidnapped foreign nationals.
Reportedly, the aim is to destabilize security in the Sinai.

"Israel sees Egypt as its main obstacle to regional dominance."

Israel attacked Egypt in 1967.
Israel claimed that it attacked because Nasser had placed troops in part of Egypt called the Sinai.

Suleiman continues to have close contacts with US intelligence and military officials.
On Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, Suleiman is receiving support. (Egypt's Next Strongman Foreign Policy)
We have been reading an article called 'They work for us' in The Economist
"In liberal democracies ... elections force politicians to take the public's wishes into account...
"Competitive markets force business leaders to heed their customers' demands all the time...
"In liberal democracies the powerful get on by pleasing others.
"In short, they work for us."
This would suggest that the USA is not a liberal democracy.
In the USA the electoral system is rigged in such a way that CIA assets tend to get elected.
Recent presidents have had no intention of heeding the public's wishes on Iraq, Afghanistan or Guantanamo.
And top Americans who commit war crimes usually get away with it.
Those many business leaders who have some sort of monopoly happily ignore those of their customers who dislike being sold junk.
Think of the contempt for customers of such businesses as YouTube and Enron.

Aangirfan remembers listening to Margaret Thatcher, on one of her trips abroad, giving very high praise to a certain powerful president.
But this president was not doing enough deals with the USA.
Time magazine then ran a story exposing the president's 'corruption'.
The president was toppled.
On 23 January 2011, Newzweek has an article entitled: "Tunisia's Ben Ali and Family Ran a 'Mafia State'"
According to Newzweek:
People in all corners of the stagnating Arab world dared to hope that the triumph of the Tunisian street might do for them what the election of Obama did for the people of the USA.
A lot of people in the Arab world have not forgotten the similar burst of enthusiasm that swept the region when Saddam flew off to Belarus and the US military brought peace and prosperity to Iraq.
The fall of Ben Ali has exposed the corrupt common denominator of every regime in the Arab world.
They are all, in effect, mafia states - entire nations run by families for their own benefit.
They do not have the good fortune to be run by such philanthropists as Bernie Madoff, Marc Rich, Ken Lay, the Bush family, Allen Stanford, Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, Oliver North, Barney Frank, Spiro Agnew, Sam Giancana, Henry Kissinger or the Rockefellers.
It should be noted that, unlike in Tunisia, elections in the USA are not rigged.
And, unlike in Tunisia, the US economy is not dominated by a few big companies which ignore the welfare of the public.
Union Carbide and DynCorp serve the public well.
Rumsfeld meets Saddam
As Tunisia's intelligence chief in the 1980s, Ben Ali built close ties to the CIA.
But it should not be thought that the CIA put people like the Shah, Saddam, Mubarak or Ben Ali into power.
The CIA had no idea that the Ben Ali family was some sort of 'mafia family'.
The Ben Alis controlled the central coast region while the Trabelsis ran the Greater Tunis area.
Ben Ali's nephew Imed Trabelsi is alleged to have stolen a yacht.
It would be wrong to think that the fall of Ben Ali has exposed the corrupt common denominator of almost every regime in the world.
They are not mostly, in effect, mafia states - entire nations run by families for their own benefit.
Aangirfan has been to Tunisia.
We can safely say that most of Tunisia is more civilised and comfortable than most parts of Florida.
On 25 January it was reported that three people had died in protests in Egypt.
We are not supposed to know too much about all these mad Muslims who work for the CIA and its friends.
Sultan Amir Tarar (Pakistan's Godfather of the Taliban dies 23 January 2011) was a friend of the CIA.
He was trained by American special forces.
He ran CIA-funded training camps in Pakistan.
These camps sent tens of thousands of mujahideen guerrillas into battle against the Soviets.
Among his students was an Afghan called Mullah Omar.
Mullah Omar became head of the Afghan Taliban and came to power in Afghanistan in 1996.
Tarar was Pakistan intelligence's link with the Afghan Taliban.
Both the CIA and its subsidiary ISI (Pakistan intelligence) were friends of the Taliban.
In 2001, the USA, fell out with the Afghan Taliban and decided to attack Afghanistan.
Tarar returned to Pakistan but allegedly continued to act as a link between the ISI and the Taliban.
Reportedly the CIA hopes to use the Afghan Taliban to balkanise certain neighbouring countries. And hopes to use the Pakistan Taliban to balkanise Pakistan.
In 2010, Tarar was kidnapped and in 2011 he died in captivity.
When Tarar was kidnapped, he had been hoping to gain an interview with the Pakistan Taliban leader, Hakimullah Mehsud.
Allegedly, the CIA is using the Pakistan Taliban to break up Pakistan.
On 21 October 2009, Akhtar Jamal, at ahmedquraishi.com/p, revealed the details of how Pakistan Taliban terrorists are being equipped with U.S., Indian and German, weapons.
Gordon Duff, of ‘Veterans Today’, revealed in a recent interview: "The Pakistani Taliban is in close cooperation with India and Israel who supply, finance, arm and train them to attack Pakistan."
Tarar was with Khalid Khawaja, a former ISI spy.
The kidnappers were led by a 'militant' called Usman Punjabi.
Punjabi's group claimed Khawaja was an ISI and CIA agent who had betrayed 'extremists' during the Red Mosque siege in Islamabad in 2007.
Also with Tarar was Asad Qureshi, a British film-maker making an independent film for the UK's Channel Four.
Qureshi was released by his kidnappers.
Punjabi was killed in a shootout with a local tribal commander, and Tarar was handed over to Hakimullah Mehsud's Pakistan Taliban.
Tarar may have known too much about CIA links to the Pakistan Taliban.
Afghan mujahidin in the White House, 1985.
And what about Mullah Omar: who knows where he is now?
On 7 January 2011, Mullah Omar reportedly had a heart attack and was treated for several days in a Karachi hospital with the help of Pakistan's spy service the ISI.
According to The Washington Post, a private intelligence firm, the Eclipse Group, was the source of this information.
And the Eclipse Group got its information from a doctor in a Karachi hospital.
The doctor said he saw Mullah Omar.
The New York Times reports that the man who runs the Eclipse Group is former CIA officer Duane R. Clarridge.
He may or may not be telling the truth.
After many years "the world has witnessed that neither Mullah Omar nor Bin Laden have been captured.
"It would be a joke to say that a superpower like the US cannot capture these two men." - Press TV's exclusive interview with Alaeddin Boroujerdi

In 1978, the government in Afghanistan was peaceful, moderate, progressive and non-communist.
The US government wanted control of Afghanistan.
The CIA decided to finance some extremist Moslems and put them into power in Afghanistan.
According to Andrew Gavin Marshall, at Global Research, 5 September 2010, (The “Arc of Crisis”):
Brzezinski said in a 1998 interview:
"It was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the .... regime in Kabul.
"And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention."
Brzezinski said he "Knowingly increased the probability that (the Soviets) would invade."
The US government plans to balkanise and control the oil rich parts of the world.
Peter Dale Scott pointed out, in The Road to 9/11, that "billions of CIA and Saudi dollars would ultimately be spent in programs that would help enhance ... Wahhabistic jihadism...."
In 1979, Hafizullah Amin, who was reportedly a CIA asset, carried out a coup in Afghanistan.
Amin "halted the reforms, and murdered, jailed, or exiled thousands of (moderates) as he moved toward establishing a fundamentalist Islamic state." (Michael Parenti, Afghanistan, Another Untold Story. Global Research: December 4, 2008: globalresearch.9)
The Soviets intervened in order to replace Amin. The Soviet invasion took place in 1980.
Reportedly, the US plans to break up Saudi Arabia, and several other oil-rich countries.
The USA took the side of the Moslem extremist Afghan Mujahideen.
In 1981, CIA Director Casey worked with Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal and the Pakistani ISI "to create a foreign legion of jihadi Muslims."
This idea had "originated in the elite Safari Club," a coalition of intelligence agencies, which included the CIA and French intelligence.
More than 100,000 Islamic militants were trained in Pakistan, in camps overseen by the CIA and MI6.
Britain's SAS training future al-Qaida and Taliban fighters in bomb-making and other black arts.
Future al-Qaeda leaders were trained at a CIA camp in Virginia.
This was called Operation Cyclone.
It continued after the Soviets left Afghanistan in 1989.
Drugs money was used to finance the Afghan Mujahideen.
When Britain was in India, Britain's East India Company turned opium into India's main export.
According to Alfred W. McCoy, in The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, "CIA activities in Burma helped transform the Shan states ... into the largest opium-growing region in the world."
In the 1960s and 1970s, the CIA promoted the drugs trade in Laos and Vietnam.
In the 1980s that the CIA turned Central Asia into a major supplier of heroin for the world market.
The CIA helped Afghanistan's heroin to reach Europe and America. (Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade.)
CIA money went to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Afghanistan’s leading mujahideen drug lord.
Between 1979 and1980, drug-related deaths in New York City rose 77%.
(Carol Off, Back to school in Afghanistan. CBC: May 6, 2002: http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/afghanistan/schools.html)
In the early 1990s the Taliban emerged, and it was supported by the CIA.
"Between 1994 and 1996, the USA supported the Taliban politically through its allies Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, essentially because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia, and pro-Western." (Robert Dreyfuss, Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam.)
Selig Harrison, a scholar with links to the CIA, said that the CIA worked with Pakistan to create the Taliban.
(Reportedly the CIA hopes to use the Afghan Taliban to balkanise certain neighbouring countries.)
1. The USA uses profits from heroin to pay for its presence in Afghanistan.
2. The USA set up the Taliban and it still hopes to make use of the Taliban.
3. The USA would like to use the Taliban to destabilise Central Asia.
4. The USA's eventual aim is to have military bases throughout Central Asia.
On 20 August 2009, www.russiatoday.com had an article entitled “Afghan drug trafficking brings US $50 billion a year”
In this article, the main points made by General Mahmut Gareev, a commander during Russia's time in Afghanistan, are as follows:
1. When General Gareev was in Afghanistan, in 1989 and 1990, the production of heroin almost ceased, apart from in certain areas.
3. Since then, it has increased by 44 per cent.
4. 80% of the world’s drugs are produced in Afghanistan.
5. The Americans themselves admit that drugs are often transported out of Afghanistan on American planes.
6. "Drug trafficking in Afghanistan brings them about 50 billion dollars a year – which fully covers the expenses tied to keeping their troops there."
7. The US military "don’t have any planned military action to eliminate the Mujahideen.
"Rather, they want to make the situation more unstable and help the Taliban to be more active.
"They even started negotiations with them, trying to direct them to the Central-Asian republics, to destabilize the whole region and set up their bases there."
You try to watch a YouTube video which is 'non-commercial' and find that it buffers and buffers and buffers.
You switch to a YouTube video that is 'commercial' and find that it plays beautifully.
You Google 'CIA, Tunisia, voltairenet' and on the first page you find no mention of voltairenet's article on the CIA's role in the Tunisia coup.
You Google 'Tunisia revolt' and you are unlikely to find any mention of Soros or the CIA.
The CIA and its friends appear to be constructing a two tier internet.
Commercial stuff is in the top tier.
The rest is in the bottom tier and will be difficult to find and slow to upload.
At PCPRO, on 21 January 2011, the question is asked: Is the internet as we know it dead?
The answer involves:
"Websites and services that are willing to pay" being "thrust into the 'fast lane'".
"Those that don't" being "left fighting for scraps of bandwidth or even blocked outright."
According to Andrew Heaney, executive director of strategy and regulation at TalkTalk, Britain’s second biggest ISP:
"We have a .... differentiated network at all levels, with huge levels of widespread discrimination of traffic types..."
( Zen Internet doesn’t employ any traffic shaping across their network, and Zen has won the PC Pro Best Broadband ISP award for the past 7 years - Zen Internet)
Streaming video is the largest single category of internet traffic.
"Broadcasters willing to pay will be put into the 'fast lane'; those who don't will be left to fight their way through the regular internet traffic jams."
Anonymous brings our attention to: "Why does Google block "Bilderberg" from auto-complete?".
"I would like to know why Google blocks 'Bilderberg' from auto-complete when it has over 2 million search results. Could this have anything to do with Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, reportedly being in attendance for the 2009 Bilderberg meeting?"
THE CIA WAS INVOLVED IN THE TUNISIA REVOLT - THIERRY MEYSSAN OF VOLTAIRENET .
Monday, January 24, 2011
On 23 January 2011, at Voltairenet, Thierry Meyssan has an article on Tunisia entitled: Washington face à la colère du peuple tunisien ] - [ Translate this page ]
Meyssan believes that the start of the Jasmine Revolution was not planned by the CIA and its friends, but, that the CIA and its friends quickly became involved in directing the affair.
Aangirfan believes that the CIA and its friends have been planning for some time to topple Ben Ali.
Ben Ali, like the Shah and like Suharto, had become too independent minded.
According to Thierry Meyssan:
1. Washington saw that Ben Ali was in trouble and could not be saved.
So Washington decided to organise the rebels.
2. Washington decided to use the media in Tunisia and abroad to control the direction of the revolt.
Washington got the media to focus attention on social issues, the corruption of Ben Ali, and censorship of the press.
Washington wanted to avoid any mention of Tunisia being used as base for NATO and the CIA.
3. On 30 December, the private channel TV Nessma spread reports about the riots and organised a debate about the transition to democracy.
Nesma TV is part owned by Silvio Berlusconi.
4. At the same time, US agents (as well as Serbs and Germans) were sent to Tunisia to run the insurgency.
These experts provided the rioters with their slogans.
These experts followed the tactics for a 'colour revolution' developed by the Albert Einstein Institution.
5. On 2 January 2010, 'the CIA' hacked the official website of the Prime Minister.
6. On 13 January the Chief of Staff of the Army, General Rashid Ammar, was contacted by the commander of AFRICOM, General William Ward.
7. Ben Ali then fled.
8. News organizations launched the name "Jasmine Revolution" (in English).
The term "Jasmine Revolution" was used by the CIA to communicate during the coup of 1987 which placed Ben Ali in power.
9. We forget the good report given by the IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
And we forget the latest report of Transparency International which said that Tunisia was less corrupt than the states of the European Union such as Italy, Romania and Greece.
10. Ahmed Najib Chebbi, a pawn of the National Endowment for Democracy, has become Minister of Regional Development.
11. Amanou Slim, a blogger using the methods of the Albert Einstein Institute, has become Secretary of State for Youth and Sports.
12. The real seat of power is no longer at the Palace of the Republic, but at the Embassy of the United States.
Located outside of Tunis, in a vast campus, the embassy is a huge bunker that houses the highly secure central stations for the CIA and the MEPI North Africa and part of the Levant.
13. Islamist Rachid Ghannouchi prepares to arrive from London.
