As I perused the news sources for the Weird Desk here at Signs of the Times this morning, I came across a real zinger in a mainstream news source: The end is nigh: so is 10th planet
The article tells us about a strange “doomsday cult” – the “Pana Wave Laboratory” – that is being carefully watched by the authorities in Japan. The article tells us:
The defining moment of weirdness in the story of the Pana Wave Laboratory, the white-clad doomsday cult roaming the mountains of central Japan, arguably came this week, when the group’s guru gave a rare interview. Sixty-nine-year-old Yuko Chino, believed to have terminal cancer, told a Japanese TV crew – forced to wear the cult’s white garb – that she would be dead within days. “But that’s nothing as important as Tama-chan,” she said. “We’ve been feeding him every day since last summer.”
“Now, who or what is Tama-chan?” I asked myself. Turns out that Tama-chan is:
… a bearded seal normally found in Arctic waters. It turned up in Yokohama’s murky river system in August and was duly celebrated as an urban miracle. If Japan wasn’t already unsettled by Pana Wave, this connection with a much-loved, cute national icon did the job. […] But the rescue move, it seems, was part of a bigger picture. The rescue of Tama-chan would save the world from destruction on May 15 – next Thursday. […] The cult believes that destruction will come when the Earth’s axis tilts with the approach of a 10th unknown planet, causing a massive earthquake. […]
Hmmm… May 15 and “Planet X”? That Planet Nibiru/ Zetatalk nonsense sure gets around! The reader may recall a rather lengthy series of articles posted on this site some time back entitled: Has Nibiru/Planet X Been Sighted?
But what is even more worrisome about this is the apparent COINTELPRO at work here. What better way to prevent and/or marginalize legitimate scientific inquiry into “alternative” subjects than to create cults such as the Pana Wave Laboratory, Zetatalk, the Guardian Alliance, and so forth, speed them up like a train running on a thermo-nuclear power plant, and crash them so that everyone can see how “crazy” ANY ideas that are not handed down from the powers that be truly are.
We do, indeed, see the planned results of COINTELPRO at work in the commentary on the Pana Wave cult:
Crazy? Let’s hope so. But in Japan, recent history has shown that to ignore such cults can have devastating consequences. In 1995 the Aum doomsday cult made its sarin gas attack on Tokyo’s subway system, killing 12 and injuring thousands. Japanese authorities came in for severe criticism for failing to act against Aum before the attack. This time, they are taking no chances with Pana Wave, which, police say, is similar to Aum in its early stages. The concern is partly based on the cult’s doomsday warnings. “People with the ears to hear will face death,” a recent statement declared. One pamphlet said that if the guru died members should “exterminate all humankind”. Pana Wave is not only strange, but clearly scary.
Well, heck yeah, it’s SCARY!
The Pana Wave Cult drives around in a “caravan of white vehicles… draping the roadside in white cloth wherever it halts. The white is supposed to offer protection from electromagnetic waves the cult members say are directed at their guru by a communist group that wants her dead. Their mountain odyssey is a search for a haven from the waves.”
Oh boy! Anybody who thinks that there are electromagnetic waves out there that can produce any numbers of effects MUST be a CULT! Never mind that there is reams of evidence – including testimony in Congressional Records – that this is exactly what the “National Security State” is doing. In fact, a careful analysis of the Timeline of Secret Government Projects strongly suggests that such groups as the Pana Wave Cult, Zetatalk, the Guardian Alliance, Heaven’s Gate, and so on, are all products of such experiments – designed to do just what they are doing – making these groups “scary.”
There are a lot of similarities between the attack on the World Trade Center – blamed on the dangerous “cult” of Islam – and other cults that “attack” righteous, God Fearing people – of the Christian or Jewish ilk, that is. And you can take it to the bank that the Jewish religion is marked for the next COINTELPRO marginalization, which will leave the Christians in charge of the planet; good Christians like George Bush, that is.
The fact is, there have been numerous “Cult Tragedies” that we suspect were deliberately “engineered” for the very purpose of driving masses of people back into the corral of the Control System of the National Security State, even including the Jim Jones’ “People’s Temple”. In fact, in March of 2002, we reported on this very subject: Jonestown Dismantling the Disinformation.
Curiously, the claim made in this article, written by an insider who later did some extensive research on Jim Jones’ connections, and proposes that the real agenda behind the COINTELPRO activated against the People’s Temple – including the “cult” label – was to destroy a potential influential voice in American Politics.
Well, I’m not sure that this is entirely true, but it certainly laid the groundwork for the acceleration of the “cult train.” And, for all we know, all we have come to believe about the People’s Temple consists of media controlled lies, such as the lies currently being promulgated about “terrorists” in the U.S.A.
What IS of some interest in relation to this is the book Who Killed John Lennon? by British lawyer/journalist Fenton Bresler who writes:
“Mark David Chapman is in many ways as much the victim of those who wanted to kill John Lennon as Lennon himself.”
Arthur O’Connor, the detective who spent more time with Chapman immediately following the murder than anyone else, said: “It is definitely illogical to say that Mark Committed the murder to make himself famous. He did not want to talk to the press from the very start. It’s possible Mark could have been used by somebody. I saw him the night of the murder. I studied him intensely. He looked as if he could have been programmed.”
Well, don’t that just beat all?! Must be those pesky EM waves again.
Bresler’s thesis, that Chapman was a mind-controlled assassin manipulated by right-wing elements in the “secret government,” goes beyond speculation into the realm of actual investigation.
Bresler established some key points that put the lie to any “Who would want to kill an aging rock star?” brush-off. Richard Nixon, his administration and other right-wing politicians (including ultraconservative ancient Senator Strom Thurmond, who personally memoed Attorney Gerneral John Mitchell on the matter) were fixated on what they saw as the Lennon problem. To them, the politically outspoken singer-songwriter was an insidious subversive of the worst kind, the famous and beloved kind. […]
Lennon’s FBI file – at nearly three hundred pages as chubby as Hoover himself – reveals that he was under “constant surveillance.” Nor did the G-men keep a particularly low profile around the ex-Beatle, apparently attempting to harass him into silence or at least drive him nuts, similar to the tactic they had used on Martin Luther King, Jr., a few short but eventful years earlier.
In late 1972, when the “surveillance” was at its peak, Lennon told humorist Paul Krassner, “Listen, if anything happens to Yoko and me, it was not an accident.”
And in the present day, we can Imagine what John Lennon would have done to face down George Bush.
And we find it so interesting that just about anybody who would have a prayer of a chance of rallying support against the Bush Reich is dead, including, recently, Senator Wellstone. As we reported back on October 26
Shortly after the news was announced, speculation broke out on Indymedia that his death was no accident. On a post to the Twin Cities site, the question is asked , “If Bush had died in a plane crash, would there not be immediate open speculation about the possibility of assassination?
Wellstone held the balance in the Senate for the Democrats; he was as opposed to Bush policies as any Senator could be, in issues of war, health policy, and labor issues. His death has great political and social significance.
So far, corporate media has not raised the possibility of assassination and is pointing to bad weather conditions as the cause of the crash. There is much doubt about this story, though. – “Paranoid Observer” notes that a key detail in an ABC news story was changed: A quote: “The pilot had reported no problems before and there was no severe weather in the area at the time, the Federal Aviation Administration said.” Now the same story says this: “The cause of the crash was not immediately known, but sources (which sources? – P.O.) told ABCNEWS that during the pre-flight weather briefing, the pilots were told they they would have “adverse icing conditions throughout the flight.”
Sherlock Holmes solved at least one case by noticing that something that should be present was missing. In the Silver Blaze, he solved the case by noticing that no one reported a barking dog.
“Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
“To the curious incident of the dog in the night time.”
“The dog did nothing in the night time.”
“That was the curious incident,” remarked Sherlock Holmes.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Silver Blaze
So what’s missing in terms of the Wellstone plane crash? For the last 14 months, anytime there has been a plane crash, the media go way overboard in assuming that this must somehow be a terrorist incident. The initial reaction of the media in the first hours of the event is always now “oh my, I hope this isn’t happening again. I hope this isn’t another terrorist attack.”
Just a few days ago, there was a news story that Al-Queda may be targeting US Senators. The story referred to the possibilities of sniper attacks on golf courses. Just a few days later, a US Senator dies. So, what’s missing?
Sen. Wellstone’s plane crashes, and there is absolutely no speculation that this is a terrorist attack. Somehow the media immediately knows that this plane crash was caused by bad weather, and this is in no way a terrorist attack.
The media dog has been barking “terrorist” steadily for 14 months. Today the dog didn’t bark.
Back to the End of the World on Thursday. The dogs are NOW indeed barking, but they are barking up the wrong tree.
