Well, it finally happened. You Gringos have been rooting for the Zombie Apocallypse so hard, that it looks like it's finally here! Unfortunately for me, it seems Mexico is to become ground zero for the rising of the un-dead.
What's even worse, these zombies are not just going to take over the world --first they're gonna take over our governments.
Mexican news are reporting that in the town of San Agustín Amatengo (Oaxaca) Lenin Carballido, a man who was declared dead in 2010, has just won the elections for mayor. That the dead leave their graves to vote is nothing new around here, but to my knowledge this is the first time a ghoul is to govern over the living!
But perhaps I'm getting carried away by paranoia: Turns out Carballido faked his own death in order to avoid apprehension, after being accused of participating in the gang-rape of a woman in 2004. When the authorities learned of his supposed death due to a diabetic coma, the charges were dropped.
I think I liked him more as a zombie, don't you agree?
Then again, if he really happens to be the vector of the zombie virus, I don't think we have much to worry about; when surrounded with Mexican politicians, any zombie looking for brains is guaranteed to starve.

For my latest contribution on the Intrepid blog, I decided to perform a little gedankenexperiment --'thought experiment' in German, Einstein's preferred method of work-- with everyone's favorite crashed saucer case.
AMERICANS STILL DID NOT GET THE MEMO
By Fahim A. Knight-El
Americans still did not get the memo, which read that our United States Government has a history of lying, putting forth propaganda and using disinformation, that has been orchestrated and designed to mislead the American people, while simanteously insulating the ruling class by allowing them to continue stealing more of the world's wealth and then relying on the military apparatus (the Military-Industrial Complex) for those who resist and dissent this is what led to the implementation and establishment of Homeland Security—which represents one of the last vestiges of repression disguised as being on the frontline of protecting our national security. The American people have not taking notice; that no time in American history has the citizens of the United States have had their movement more stricken by the government in particular, in times of civility and peace, scrutinized in public and private places, cameras monitoring our legal activity, our finances is also being closely monitored, all forms of domestic and international travel is being monitored and our civil liberties have been compromised. The new laws have been passed and implemented to insure that the State has the legal right to exercise all the authority, it needs to keep the masses under control. They have in their own way covertly re-written the United States Constitution and has rendered the masses defenseless and powerless; thus, furthering the Police State initiatives and in which the U.S. Government now has everything in place to deal with potential future internal social rebellions (external terrorism is a distance second to this objective).
For example, they want us to believe that the recent enacted anti-terrorism laws and the government's legal and military maneuvers are about protecting the American people against terrorism (they are masters of tricks and lies). The ignorant will applaud these measures until the black boot U.S. Gestapo troops kick his/her door down and treat them with moral and ethical indignity, but we would have to blame no one but ourselves because the handwriting has clearly been on the wall since 9-11 and before. President Obama passed one of the most reactionary and fascist pieces of legislation ever to be enacted into law, perhaps next to the U.S. Patriot Act, which was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This took the concept of Big Brother Watching You to the next level. The American people are in deep trouble and it is sad to say, many of us do not know that we are in trouble. It will eventually be the government versus the American people and this is why President Obama and the Democrats are pushing for more comprehensive gun control measures because they must disarm American citizens and render them defenseless.
They will use incidents like what took place in Newtown, Connecticut where a massive tragedy took place, which involved the senseless murder of innocent children. But the government will play to the emotions of the American people and in the larger debate, which to disarm its citizens these deaths becomes politically expendable and the hypocritical politician’s uses moments even like this to further their own agendas.
Many of the politicians on the left and right are card carrying members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and are staunch Second Amendment Right advocates—these patriots and good ole boys are not going to give up their guns to the government without a fight. It became easy for them to make Newtown, the new poster child of the effects of gun violence in our community and yet for years the U.S. Government has overlooked the massive gun violence in cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Memphis, Houston, Atlanta, Richmond, Philadelphia, Newark, Compton, New Orleans, East Saint Louis, Washington, DC, etc., just ask yourself why. I will tell you why, because they do not care about poor African Americans and Latinos spilling their blood in the streets of America (they in private applaud this type of genocide because it adds to the depopulation agenda). However, the images of little white children being killed would play up well as a political marketing ploy relative to sensitizing the American citizens to consider given up their guns in the name of preventing senseless gun violence deaths (the politicians are always looking at the potential to shape and mold public policy and in this case working to disarm the American people is the ultimate objective). But trust me, it’s not about controlling or preventing gun violence, it is more about quietly rescinding the Second Amendment Right to the United States Constitution and even challenging the Bill of Rights. I do not see Obama and other politicians crying and shedding tears over the deaths caused by gun violence that takes place every day in these murder capitols of the United States of America that I have stated above.
The real terrorist live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue called the White House and his name is President Barack Hussein Obama—now he looks more like a terrorist to me than the media images given to the American people depicting what a terrorist is suppose to look like (surely they are not supposed to look Russian and white). This puppet has been the face of terror since his selection to the office of U.S. president in 2008; I hope that you all did not think that Barack Obama won a two term U.S. presidential election because of the American electoral process—one man, one vote; in all reality, our vote isn't worth a damn thing, the entire process, which includes the concept of democracy is a sham. He is only acting as commander-in-chief at the pleasure of the Council on Relations, Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission these are the organizations and agencies that set the American agenda and the global agenda (voting is only a political exercise for the masses designed to keep us pacified and thinking that we live under a democracy and the Invisible Elitist has their foot square up in our asses).
President Obama was responsible for the assassination of Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi and the political destabilization of the nation of Libya and derailing all the progressive work the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya was doing; for example, in 1953 while drilling for oil, the Libyans discovered a fresh water sea beneath the desert in which President Qaddafi would later invest over 25 billion dollars and constructed a water aqueduct system laying pipes beneath the dry desert of Libya, which to extract fresh drinking water for his people (and would be used for irrigation and farming—Libya would have the ability to feed itself) and bring life to one of the driest nations on earth—it was called the Great Man Made River Authority. It was designed to provide 6, 500, 000 cubic meters of fresh water daily this project was monumental which used cutting edge technology to bring life to the desert. They assassinated Colonel Muammar Qaddafi (he had been on the U.S. Government hit list for over 40 years), which the CIA and the United States Government charged him and other radical and militant leaders with engaging in State supported terrorism; often it is these type false accusations that justifies the destabilization of legitimate foreign governments and in this present international political climate this will continue to lead to the assassination of Heads of States who disagrees with the United States and her European allies.
President Obama has been used by the Zionist in Israel in particular, acting as the great equalizer in this volatile region—the Zionist State of Israel is well equipped to defend itself because it has one of the most sophisticated fighting machines to be found any place on the planet; however, President Obama is mandated to carry out the American agenda and of equal importance he must also put forth the Israeli agenda in the region, which led to President Hosni Mubarak being ousted out of power in Egypt. Now, I do not shed a tear for a traitor like Mubarak, he was a U.S. and Israel lapdog and puppet an international whore and prostitute who consistently betrayed the interest of his people in order to receive large amounts of U.S. Foreign aid. The CIA provided Mubarak with a petit- bourgeoisie life style, he in turn allowed western influence to dominate this Muslim society and once he no longer could effectively serve their interest, the, CIA and Mossad created the political atmosphere which led to him being toppled. The Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt will eventfully suffer the same fate, if they gain power and political control, but betray the political, social and economic aspirations of the Egyptian people. Obama destabilized Tunisia and is deep in Morocco and along with the French and other western powers have re-colonized Mali—North Africa is now under the complete dictates of the United States of America and her capitalist Western Allies.
Perhaps many still do not know nor understand that it’s Africa that lays the future key to whether or not the G-8 and G-20 Nations remain powerful as political and economic forces as we move deeper into the 21st Century. Their survival is depended upon the continued exploitation of natural resources and mineral rights that exist on the continent of Africa and therefore, the CIA has setup puppet and reactionary regimes throughout Africa and here lies the wealthiest continent in the world and Africans die of thirst and hunger and are poor on their own land—the bloodsuckers of the poor should be charged with crimes against humanity in which the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are criminals of the worst kind. Europeans in particular, even prior to the Berlin Conference (1884-1885) where Africa was divided and partitioned, this and the Transatlantic Slave Trade was one of the most devastating blows relative to dismantling centuries of African Glory, moreover, for those who would like to investigate this contention further just go back read glorious history of African civilizations such as Mali, Ghana, and Songhay.
I think President Obama and these foreign policy blunders are impeachable offenses. The United States Congress no longer acts as the balancing act of the Executive Branch of government (the separation of powers no longer exist in our so-called democracy) and this has placed the American people in a danger zone in particular, in the area of foreign policy and the declaring of war. Some of us are so duped and foolish we receive and accept everything that the corporate media says at face value and question nothing; many Americans even seemed shocked after reading and hearing the former National Security Agency and ex-CIA contractor Edward Snowden reveal some disturbing things about the government; he should be classified as a legitimate whistleblower, as opposed to looking at potentially being extradited and prosecuted by the U.S. Government—this man should be viewed as a hero and the American people should not allow the Obama administration to unjustly prosecute this man for revealing the truth. I applaud him for snitching out how the NSA was spying on the American people, why are they spying on the American people and how does this infringe upon our constitutional rights as citizens of the United States of America? I am quite sure Snowden took an oath similar to this: “ I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God”. It appears based on the government oath he was only doing his job.
This hypocritical government now desires to charge Snowden with treason and espionage; the State Department and President Barack Obama has revoked his United States Passport. I view Snowden action as being a good patriot who revealed anti-American and illegal activity taking place inside the government who was using unauthorized surveillance on phone and internet communication, which amounted to the government spying on ordinary citizens. Many of us in the Black Nationalist and the Black Power movement has been very familiar with these tactics since the early 1960s in which former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover initiated Cointelpro where as he spied on leaders and organizations such as the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale, he spied on Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam and sent agent provocateurs to disrupt and cause internal confusion inside the Nation of Islam; Hoover was behind the separation of Minister Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik Shabazz) from his teacher the Honorable Elijah Muhammad; Hoover even spied and wiretapped the phones of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Yes, we are familiar with the dirty tricks of the U.S. Government and we know that Snowden is the latest victim.
Yet, in 2013, it still surprises me that we often naively thinks the government is serving the personal and national security interest of the American populous in particular, when the media reports indicate that that government has apprehended and/or prosecuting one deemed to be a so-called homegrown Enemy Combatants. These titles and labels are code language for America's war against Islam and in particular those so-called involved in alleged domestic terrorism—this is a mere smokescreen; a number of these alleged U.S. soil terrorist plots have been initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in which Arab and/or Middle Eastern pasties have been used in order to give credibility to the threat by playing to the images and the psychological profiles that have been created in our subconscious and conscious minds by the media, which reinforces our fears that are rooted in the false idea that Islamic extremist wants to destroy the United States of America. These alleged terrorist will be tried as part of kangaroo legal proceedings and afterwards, it does not make us any more safer, it only insures that the government is using effective propaganda to keep the sheepel docile and under control and at a blink of an eye President Obama will declare Martial Law against the American people and outright use the U.S. Military to kill and slaughter American citizens in the streets. Obama is just a wolf in sheep clothing and his so-called liberal posture is just a political front, but he is no different than was George W. Bush.
Those who do not know the United States Government has been recruiting Eastern Europeans such as the Russians and also Afrikaaners (white Nazi type South Africans) who are being trained in secret training camps in various southern and southwest U.S. cities for these future potential domestic missions. They were systematically recruited because of being viewed as having the least patriotism, loyalty and sentiments towards the American people (these Eastern Europeans mercenaries are cold blooded killers and they definitely have no love of black people or American Caucasian people). President Barack Obama and his Handlers were so adamant about imposing new gun control measures that the government has actually exacerbated gun violence by introducing more guns in the streets of America–President Obama is actually fighting two wars at home and abroad. This overzealous puppet now desire to use U.S. tax dollars to arm the Syrian opposition (listening and taking advice from a warmonger like Senator John McCain)—at one point in American history the president had to inform congress before declaring war on a foreign nation, but now we have given the office of president emperor and dictator type authority. The people have no voice and our so-called leadership has been co-opted by political lobby groups and by powerful external forces. The 535 members who belong to the U.S. Congress have been bought and paid for by a small powerful minority.
The corporate media would want you believe that the United States won the Iraq War; no doubt hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi citizens lost their lives and a once stable and productive government under Saddam Hussein is now fragment and divided with little real infrastructure; yet the United States military pulled out and viewing the present day Iraq; ask yourself, what did the United States achieve militarily and/or politically in a nation that has always been steeped in religious sectarianism? Since U.S. occupation, I do not think the Shias or the Sunnis recognized the U.S. authority in determining and overseeing Iraq sovereignty and this reality alone constituted a failure and created a Middle East Foreign Policy mess.
I think most American citizens abhor what is deemed acts of violence against innocent people and sympathize with those who are victims of terrorism and terrorist acts. I share their pain and all of those who were killed and injured have my condolences and my sympathy goes out to the those families who have lost loves ones and also my sympathy goes out to those who were physically injured and to the many who were psychologically effected by what took place on Patriot Day in Boston, Massachusetts. Yet as painful as this tragedy was, but it is still difficult for me to accept the United States Government version of the Boston so-called terrorist plot because of the Government’s history of lies and deception. What have we learned from 9/11? How could the U.S. Government objectively investigate themselves?
These are meant to be mere rhetorical questions, but it depends on how one views and receive these questions would be the ultimate indication of whether or not the American people have made any progress in the area of critical thinking since 9/11. We know the 9/11 Commission was a joke and that the bombing of the World Trade Center (the financial capitol of the world) was an inside job that involved many players. They have many precedents of how to dupe the American people and globe, but none has played out like the 9/11 incident, they have been implying for over 10 years now, that they are engaged in a war on terrorism and the American people are so dumbfound and gullible they fail see and understand that the war on terror is actually also a war against the American people. So the government has an established template for how to carry out acts of domestic terrorism and how it should be conveyed to the public. Lets be clear Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were probably patsies working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Talking Head John King got himself in a bit of trouble by suggesting that the two suspects had dark skin, it implied that only dark skinned people of the planet has a problem with United States imperialism and perhaps only one of them could have carried out this type of unprovoked terrorism against innocent people. Many African Americans were outraged at CNN news reporter John King's statement in which I do understand their outcry because they historically and even presently are consistent victims of American style racism. However, his statement did not anger me because over 90% of the planet is people of color and the United States and its European allies have waged wars against an international religious demographic that consist of over two billion Muslims. The Drone Strikes have infuriated America's enemies and the backlash and sentiments will negatively play itself out in European societies and in the United States, but lets be clear, I am in no way suggesting that there is a monolithic political or religious agreed agenda amongst Muslims and Islam relative to the concept of Jihad (Holy War) or on the interpretation of the Qur'an. America and its allies mainly under the Bush and Obama's administration has neutralized these so-called 'rogue nations', which President George W. Bush labeled the "Axis of Evil". Even if we hand delivered the “Memo” to the American people and read it to them; many still would not have heard because the government has done a masterful job of dumbing down its citizens.

Tony Blair's All New Who Needs Democracy Tank Wheels of Fortune Political Lottery's an Absolute Riot!Posted by alanborky at 22:44, 08 Jul 2013
I do hope I'm misunderstanding Tony Blair or at least the "striking development" in his thinking given by Toby Helm and Martin Chulov in the Observer isn't representative of a new definition of democracy covertly emerging amongst our masters and betters.
According to Blair it's perfectly legitimate for the military to decide they know best what the masses want and remove democratically elected presidents from office.
"The events that led to the Egyptian army's removal of President Mohamed Morsi confronted the military with a simple choice: intervention or chaos. Seventeen million people on the streets are not the same as an election. But it as an awesome manifestation of power."
I particularly like that "awesome manifestation of power".
Tony's very big on power.
Does this mean then it's alright for me an' the rest of Britain an' America to vote with our feet by way of persuading our military to remove Cameron and Obama from office?
And how many of us needs to be out there for them to be sure when to act?
And like in Egypt and Syria how do they work out who's the Fors who's the Againsts?
If I've understood him right though that doesn't really matter.
Apparently sheer decisiveness's the thing because events in Egypt for instance're just "the latest example of the interplay, visible the world over, between democracy, protest and government efficacy. Democracy is a way of deciding the decision-makers but it is not a substitute for making a decision."
And see this's where I start to get confused.
I always thought democracy was about our would-be political servants presenting us with proposals they intend to carry out in office and the rest of us voting for the ones we like best.
But according to Blair what we've really been voting or rioting for's whoever's the most decisive.
"I am a strong supporter of democracy. But democratic government doesn't on its own mean effective government. Today efficacy is the challenge."
Hell who needs the piddly fuss and inconvenience of democracy if y'can have decisiveness!
Then again doesn't that reduce politics to the level of a lottery where we're given tickets covered with all manner of goodies on offer by the various political parties only the moment we scratch 'em off to find out we're g'ttin' wha'ever they say we're g'ttin'?
*ttt!* Silly me.
That's the old definition of democracy.
In Blair's new definition if we ain't happy with whatever they're fobbin' us off with we keep takin' to the streets till the army finally sets everything right.
I'm over at the BBC reading how an MI5 spy's been cleared of assaulting and harassing his ex-girlfriend also an agent.
Wond'ring 'bout all the marvellous technological developments available to paranoid vindictive spy couples to spy on each other reminded me of the NYPD Cop and his cohorts who'd been using state surveillance resources to monitor potential victims in preparation for cannibal feasting.
President Obama affects puzzlement over all the fuss about the spying revelations of Edward Snowden.
Yet if the likes of Prism can't detect cannibal rings operating among its users' ranks but rather facilitates if not positively encourages that type of controlling mindset then maybe it'll only be when someone finally turns those same facilities against him and his he'll get what the rest of us were on about.
Part I of a series on art and evolution! Lines inside the brain...
Years ago when my daughter was about six I noticed she had her fierce eyes on ferociously staring into space as her two little dimples took turns bouncing up and down on either side of her face as her thinly squeezed lips pulsated in and out against each other as if she was simultaneously chewing on something very tiny and having an imaginary argument with someone.
I could all but hear invisible steam hissing out her ears and she was obviously furious about something.
"What's the matter sugar plum?" I asked.
For a moment she seemed speechless with fury as if she'd've much preferred continuing her incandescent inner rant rather than run the risk of feeling less aggrieved by explaining what was up before hissing "It's me mum..."
"What about y'mum?"
"She said 'What d'you wan'o do? Go to Nanny's or stay with Gran'ma?' and I laughed and said 'Much as I love Gran'ma I really do I'd rather be with me Dad and go to Nanny's' and she snapped 'Well y'goin' to Gran'ma's anyway'! Why do people do that? Everyone does it. Even teachers. They pretend like they're givin' y'u a choice but they're not given you any choice a' all."
That statement of my daughter's about pretending to give people a choice when they're being given no choice at all I suggest's the essence of the new wonder of the age Nudging*.
They dress it up with terms like cognitive this and algorithm that but it boils down to how can we convince the masses we're giving them more choice more democracy indeed when in fact they're in the process of completely taking all our choices all our democracy away?
And the cosmic joke of it all's it's not even new!
Anyone's who's ever been raised by a parent especially a mother knows that chilling moment when you suddenly realise that friendly approach of a few minutes ago when the parent concerned seemed to idly ask your opinion on a topic vaguely touching on your future was merely a ruse to at first cajole then attempt to persuade then finally bludgeon you into submission.
So now we've not only got to be paranoid about our governments hacking into each others' emails files and phonecalls etc as well as the emails files and phonecalls of us their own citizens but we've also got to to be paranoid whether all those algorithms they're so kindly in the process of providing us with to ensure we don't make any wrong choices've been hacked into in such a way we make wrong choices even they haven't allowed for.
*by a curious coincidence nudger's English slang for penis so decide for yourself what Nudging might be slang for.
We have forgotten our true existence here in Time/Space. We are entities occupying forms here that think and do, but the spheres that we utilize to leverage everything we see and hear seems to be holographic in emulation. Our process of dreaming gives us clues to our true aspect ratios to this realm of physicality. We come here as MIND to take over forms in various configurations to intertwine with in a journey that seems upward toward some finality with this realm. It is the process of discovery that we are experiencing to feed a mental overlording. In the future we will grow massively when we realize that we are all related via this expansive experience of sharing this realm of mentality and challenge. Let's begin to expand our minds so we may advert wars and conflicts. You would not exist without being observed by the OTHER. Feedback Looping is the key to knowing where and who you truly are.
