First, last, and only blind date happened before I was 18.  Drove a car with no heat for 3 hours on new years eve with the friend who set the date up (double date.)  Lets just say "no good came of it."

This ^^^ is a good visual representation of what I feel like when I see one of your inevitable replies to my posts.

Yes public poasting of puerile pedantry prescribes a parsimonious pounding.

You are preternaturally stupid.  You are a bellicose moron who can't understand any concept, no matter how simply expressed, unless it is tube-fed to you by some conspiracy retard.

You are an enchanted hobo, a professional space-occupier, a shoebox filled with oily diarrhea shrieking at me through your seven teeth.

Visually interesting a tad better than your usual trenchant fare here.

I love my dog. She's really great and I'd do anything for her.

A real master of the tie you are.

I'd also put her in a burlap bag and beat her with a brick if it meant not seeing you fuck yourself with a lunchbox every five minutes.  But then I think, why bother?  At the end of the day, when we all go offline, you get to be you.  And really, what could be worse than that?

Lotsa projection in this one.

Precisely what I thought.

I know you will not be disappointed. 8)

This is another thought I had. A logical explanation for the implant in his ear, to me, has always been that there is mind control involved - and most likely human involvement as opposed to that with extraterrestrial bent.

Other breadcrumbs that led me to similar conclusions are that some of Whitley's own family has worked in government. I recall an uncle of his being interested in some of his experiences, despite not being very forthcoming of the nature of his own job description - or the work he did.

You've been paying attention. And for all those who lampoon Whitley as a crackpot it must be said that he truly does stay open to any and all possibilities and if anything the aliens-only aspect of this has mostly diminished in his recent analysis.

I believe the alien aspect is intrinsically tied to "what we humans call death", as Anne Strieber noted once. It seems highly possible to me that the afterlife could be ushered on by beings such as the people described by Whitley in his books.

Have you read all his books, Metron?

I have not, but I have read at least 8 or 9 them. The 'fiction' is rewardingly well-crafted and paced, but the "non-fiction" is where my real pleasure comes from. I will spare you one read, a more recent co-authored tome belabored by some rather heavy-handed scholarly jargon:

The Super Natural: A New Vision of the Unexplained
by Whitley Strieber (Goodreads Author),  Jeffrey J. Kripal
 4.07  ·   Rating details ·  216 ratings  ·  45 reviews
Two of today's maverick authors on anomalous experience present a perception-altering and intellectually thrilling analysis of why the paranormal is real, but radically different from what is conventionally

Whitley Strieber (Communion) and Jeffrey J. Kripal (J. Newton Rayzor professor of religion at Rice University) team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences.

Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors--one the man who popularized alien abduction and the other a renowned scholar and "renegade advocate for including the paranormal in religious studies" (The New York Times)--deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction but a vital and authentic aspect of life.

Their suggestion? That all kinds of "impossible" things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are not impossible at all: rather, they are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful, and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures, which are what really make these things seem "impossible."

The Super Natural considers that the natural world is actually a "super natural world"--and all we have to do to see this is to change the lenses through which we are looking at it and the languages through which we are presently limiting it. In short: The extraordinary exists if we know how to look at and think about it.

Whitley and Professor Kripal write it as a conversation of essays, each chapter alternating between the two. Whitley's prose I found as clean and engaging as ever. Kripal's was turgid with scholarly jargon and academia speak and frankly I found myself dreading his chapters. I ultimately finished the book after several months of dipping in an out, but it was an unexpected chore for subject matter I truly am fascinated by.

To skip through the geopolitical life of America without traveling back to the "Creature From Jekyll Island' as at least a first good look at how the Banksters took away our national economic sovereignty is a travesty of self-deception.


The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve
by G. Edward Griffin
 4.28  ·   Rating details ·  3,536 ratings  ·  416 reviews
The quintessential treatise on economics. Cussed and discussed by all from notable politicians to academicians to laypersons. Do you want to know the truth about money? Creature from Jekyll Island will give you the answers to these, and other, questions: Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magicians' secrets are unveiled. We get a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, their pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A dry and boring subject? Just wait! You'll be hooked in five minutes. Creature from Jekyll Island Reads like a detective story which it really is. But it's all true. This book is about the most blatant scam of all history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Creature from Jekyll Island is a "must read." Your world view will definitely change. You'll never trust a politician again or a banker.

You appear to be a massive retard. In no way have I done anything to destroy the idea of one man one vote.


Your own words:

continue to reject the two party system and will continue to push for something on the order of ranked voting to change the paradigm.


Keep that vote rigging and candidate bleaching up in your own walk in cooler of a nation:

OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau has promised that last fall's federal election will be the last conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system.
In the past, the prime minister has expressed a preference for replacing FPTP with a system in which voters rank their choices on the ballot, although he has since said he is also open to some form of proportional representation (PR).

Under a ranked ballot, voters mark their first, second and subsequent choices. If no candidate wins more than 50 per cent of the vote, the contender with the fewest votes is dropped from the ballot and his or her supporters' second choices are counted. That continues until one candidate emerges with a majority.

I also don’t just claim to support the party because of the principles it advances. I actually do so.


So you think the Constitution Party supports "ranked voting"?

US Constitution, Article 1, Section 4, Clause 1:
“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature​​ thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing* Senators.”
The Constitutional balance of power on this matter has been destroyed by the 17th Amendment. The States no longer have a representative at the Federal level.**
The Constitution Party seeks the restoration of an electoral process that is controlled at the state and local level and is beyond manipulation by federal judges and bureaucrats. The federal government has unconstitutionally and unwisely preempted control in matters of district boundaries, electoral procedures, and campaign activities.
The Voting Rights Act should be repealed. The Federal Election Campaign Act, including its 1974 amendments, and the Federal Election Commission should be abolished.
Each citizen should have the right to seek public office in accordance with the qualifications set forth in federal and state constitutions.
Additional restrictions and obligations governing candidate eligibility and campaign procedures burden unconstitutionally the fairness and accountability of our political system.
To encourage free and fair elections, all candidates must be treated equally. We call for an end to designated "Major Party" status that gives an unfair advantage​​ to some candidates by providing ballot access and taxpayer dollars, while requiring others for the same office to gather petition signatures or meet other more stringent criteria.
We call for a repeal of all federal campaign finance laws (i.e. McCain- Feingold) due to their violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
In order to avoid election fraud, we insist electronic and mechanical voting processes provide a clear, auditable and verifiable paper trail. At a minimum, elections should be​​ audited at random at the precinct level after the polls close.
There is a growing movement within the states and nation to undermine our right of a “Secret Ballot” by making people vote by absentee ballot. ​​ This move away from a “Secret Ballot” and “Vote-in-person” approach is an insecure system, not only because the Post office has been losing and misplacing mail for many years, but also because of increasing fraud and vote rigging, such as voter suppression, vote buying, and ballot box stuffing. Even though Vote- By-Mail seems to increase voting percentages in the short-term, it has proven to cause a long-term decline. Also verifying signatures “after the fact” greatly increases the cost of an election. Since true freedom requires being inconvenienced and​​ putting forth extra effort from time- to-time, we oppose any movement to codify or use Vote-By-Mail and other such schemes which undermine the liberty-preserving privilege of voting in secret, in person, at precinct-based polling places.
Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution states, in part:
"Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal​​ to the whole Number of Senators and representatives to which the state may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an elector."
This established the Electoral College.
The Constitution does not provide for the election of the President and Vice President of the United States by popular vote, but rather by the selection of “Electors” according to rules adopted by each state’s legislators. ​​ These electors would receive the list of certified candidates. They would then cast their vote for whomever they ascertained as best qualified to fill these two highest offices of trust with the federal government. The Constitution Party seeks a restoration of this electoral process for the choosing of the President and the Vice President of the United States.
Although the Constitution does not require the states to adhere to any specific manner in electing these electors or how they cast their votes, it suggests, by its wording, that prominent individuals from each congressional district, and from the state at large, would be elected or appointed as electors that represent that district. Under this arrangement, a voter would vote for three individuals, one​​ to represent his district and two "at large" representatives to represent his state. ​​ These electors, in turn, would then carefully and deliberately select the candidate for president. Under this system each congressional district could, in essence, select a different candidate. The candidate with the most electors nationwide would become the next president.
This was the general procedure used until the 1830's at which time all the states, except for South Carolina, changed to a "general ticket." The "general ticket" system is still in use today. Inherently, it causes corruption by the inequitable transfer of power from congressional districts to the states and large cities at the expense of rural communities.
The Constitution Party encourages states to eliminate the "general ticket" system and return to the procedure intended by the Framers. ​​ The so-called National Popular Vote is a dangerous threat to our Constitutional Republic, allowing as few as eighteen to twenty-one states to circumvent the Constitutional requirement of 38 states to amend the Constitution. The National Popular Vote process would effectively eliminate the last vestiges of the Electoral College as originally set forth in the United States Constitution. The National Popular Vote creates​​ a fake majority by forcing electors to vote against the votes cast by their own constituents.
The elimination of the Electoral College would overnight make irrelevant the votes of Americans in approximately 25 states because candidates would only be interested in campaigning in large population states making small states meaningless zeros. There is no threshold of what constitutes a “majority” under National Popular Vote. ​​ Therefore, a presidential candidate could be elected with as little as 15% of the popular vote. ​​ Under the National Popular Vote scheme, chaos would ensue in any close election. Under the Electoral College no single faction or region of the country can elect a president, ensuring broad representation across America.
The national Constitution Party opposes National Popular Vote and will work to defeat it in individual state legislatures.

Any thing there is this party you claim to support that suggests "ranked voting"?

While people like you are keyboard warrioring on here like blowhards to an audience of only yourself I actually have spent hundreds of hours working ballot access petitions, running information booths, on state and national meetings and platform committees and served as a state delegate to the national convention not to mention the actual monetary contributions over the years.

I can use my time more productively than that.

I have no issue with your maintaining youir privacy, none at all. 8)

I do have MAJOR ISSUES with "ranked voting" and I do not for one moment believe the CP has interest in it. If so please let me know with clear citations here and I shall avoid them like the fucking plague!

New Site Update
Thursday, June 28, 2018

First, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to our GoFundMe! We have reached the goal, but if you want to do anything more, I am leaving the link up for another week or so. This is because we are going to have to rebuild the new site pretty much from the ground up. However, all the pieces of the jigsaw are in place, so it's not going to take all that long--I hope!

The reason that more donations would be helpful is that an intrusion into the current site damaged its ability to process subscriptions. This means that when a subscription is suspended because the payment doesn't work, the subscriber can continue to log in. Also, new subscriptions cannot be processed. (I might add here that no credit card data is stored on Unknowncountry, so credit card numbers have never been compromised by our site and never can be, as there are none there.)

The result of all this is that we are experiencing a serious decline in cash flow and continued donations are much appreciated.

You can donate on our GoFundMe page or via PayPal.

I thought I'd go into a little more detail about what happened to the new site. For the first few months, the developer was very professional and skillful. He world efficiently and reliably. Then the following happened:

1. The site was essentially finished and ready to deploy. So I paid him the final payment in his contract.
2. I was immediately locked out of the site's administration area. I protested this and was let back in.
3. The site was loaded with malware, so that as soon as you went to it, you were redirected to bogus sites.
4. I had the malware removed and the developer fixed the parts of the site that were broken.
5. For security reasons, I froze backup on one of the two backup systems on the site, so that I would have
a clean copy if needed.
5. Sure enough, I was once again locked out of the site and once again, the malware appeared.
6. I then decided that the developer was either a crook himself or that his own site was compromised.
7. I isolated him from the new site and started seeking help.

I have now had a fresh site created with the same level of security as major controversial news players like Fox and CNN and the BBC. If the new site is ever compromised again, it will have to be by a state player or a very sophisticated hacker. In any case, as before, no credit card data will be stored on the site, so there will be nothing for crooks to steal. However, I don't think that this has ever been the problem. I think that we are dealing with either a state player or a sophisticated private hacker, or both, and that their agenda is not to steal anything, but to suppress my message and ruin me financially.

Years ago, I heard from an individual I had reason to believe that there was within the intelligence community a large group of people who believed that the visitors were demons. These were primarily Air Force Intelligence and CIA personnel, but others were involved, too. As recently as last year, a congressional committee supposedly cut off funding for research into materials because they didn't want our scientists working on "demonic technology."

I was further told that many of these people believed that I was in league with these demons, and might even be one myself.

Of course, this is primitive, childish thinking that emerges out of the illusion that the universe is divided between good and evil, which it is not. This dualism is an invention of the human mind. The reality is that it is a very old, very complex and nuanced system that has evolved along with the unimaginably ancient consciousness that created it and sustains it--of which we are not just a part, but an important part.

There is a school in operation here, and every single one of us has the chance to enter it. It teaches soul coherence, which is the whole reason that intelligent life evolves in the first place. Our intelligence is what give us the potential to evolve our souls, and I am deeply involved in this. I am in the school and a big part of my purpose is to help others matriculate.

The idea that this is somehow evil and has anything to do with demons is nonsense. Because the visitors use friction as a means of enabling self-discovery, they are thought of as demonic. If you look into the eyes of an angel, you look into your deepest self at the same time, and if that depth is dark, then you are going to be afraid. More than anything, success in the visitors' school is about accepting oneself.

So, I end up here: while I am reaching new levels of consciousness and gaining the ability to show others how to find the extraordinarily enriching path I am on, I am being dogged by frightened barbarians who have not the slightest idea what they are doing.

So be it. I didn't sign on for an easy life. I knew what I was doing and I still do. Onward!

I included that for the benefit of MD. MD. who  I mention further on in the post.  Go back and read it.

I'm not carrying water for the Dr. but he made his point as to the overall dangers of the military industrial complex and the birth of the CIA.

Lordy, I'll bet the gang in Bluffdale, Utah are having lotsa laughs reading Bellgrab! ::)

The only fraternal organizations I belong to are the Elks and the American Legion but no doubt in your mind they too are dens of satanists.

Here, let me check,'s another strawman!

Short form answer is I do not find either organization to Satanic per se, however there is lot of interesting history to read here:

The B.P.O.E. was founded in 1868 in New York as a drinking club, but later broadened into a fraternal, charitable, and service organization. It is open to male U.S. citizens over 21, of whom some 1,500,000 were Elks in 1994.

The founders were a group of actors who rented a room first on 14th Street and then on the Bowery, where they could drink in peace of a Sabbath evening. Members carried a cork; failure to do so meant having to buy a round of drinks. Their leader, the aggressive American nationalism of modern Elks notwithstanding, was an English actor called Charles Algemon S. Vivian. It seems likely that he borrowed at least some of the paraphernalia of the Elks from the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffalo.

When the organization changed from the Jolly Corks to the B.P.O.E., it borrowed a certain amount from the Masons, including aprons and such terms as “Tyler” for the guardian of a lodge, and “Lodge of Sorrow” (a funeral service for a dead Elk). It also established a governmental structure “Following the general plan of our Federal government,” dividing the organization into Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches.

Membership was for many years limited to “white male citizens of the United States, not under twenty-one years of age, who believe in the existence of God” and who are not “directly or indirectly a member of or in any way connected or affiliated with the Communist party, or who believe in the overthrow of our Government by force.” As long as election to a lodge was still carried out by the old blackball system, entrance to the B.P.O.E. remained subject to these requirements regardless of legislation and public outcry to the contrary, but in 1989 the Grand Lodge changed the rules so that a simple two-thirds majority vote in favor of a candidate was sufficient to ensure admission.

The oath that follows includes secrecy (not revealing “the confidential matters of the Order”), obedience to the Elks’ rules, a promise to uphold the Constitution of the United States, never to reveal the name of anyone who has received help from the lodge, and so forth. It is also forbidden to use membership of the lodge for business purposes, or to introduce politics or religion into the lodge meetings. “If I break this oath, may I wander through the world forsaken; may I be pointed out as a being bereft of decency and manhood, unfit to hold communion with true and upright men. And may God help me, and keep me steadfast in this my solemn and binding obligation in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in the United States of America. Amen.”

The official Christian reaction to all this varies with the sect. The Catholics leave it up to individual conscience, while some Lutheran and other sects specifically proscribe membership.

The problem with adopting any masonic rituals is YOU really have no way to gauge what the intent of the leaders is in cribbing this symbolism.

The onion skin analogy holds.

The outer layers of Freemasonry are just the same. You have to get to about the 32nd degree to really have a clue what the agenda is. Read up on the killing of Hiram Abriff and what that means within the Masonic vows and oaths.

The American Legion seems to have nothing but positive veterans based agendas, both Girls and Boys State are fantastic business and leadership programs that can be seen as feeders to DECA and other accredited university-based business leadership programs.

At the state level, The American Legion is organized into "departments", which run annual civic training events for high school juniors called Boys State. Two members from each Boys State are selected for Boys Nation. The American Legion Auxiliary runs Girls State and Girls Nation. In addition to Boys State, The American Legion features numerous programs including American Legion Baseball, Scouting, Oratorical Contests, Junior Shooting Sports, Youth Alumni, Sons of the American Legion, American Legion Riders, and Scholarships at every level of the organization.

I shall take you at your word that you're not a freemason, but I shall caution you again as I have many times that the Bush family ARE enmeshed with the globalist freemason agenda.

He made a dishonest case for war. Thirteen years before George W. Bush liedabout weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, his father made his own set of false claims to justify the aerial bombardment of that same country. The first Gulf War, as an investigation by journalist Joshua Holland concluded, “was sold on a mountain of war propaganda.”

For a start, Bush told the American public that Iraq had invaded Kuwait “without provocation or warning.” What he omitted to mention was that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, had given an effective green light to Saddam Hussein, telling him in July 1990, a week before his invasion, “[W]e have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.”

Then there is the fabrication of intelligence. Bush deployed U.S. troops to the Gulf in August 1990 and claimed that he was doing so in order “to assist the Saudi Arabian Government in the defense of its homeland.” As Scott Peterson wrote in the Christian Science Monitor in 2002, “Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated … that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border, threatening the key U.S. oil supplier.”

Yet when reporter Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times acquired her own commercial satellite images of the Saudi border, she found no signs of Iraqi forces; only an empty desert. “It was a pretty serious fib,” Heller told Peterson, adding: “That [Iraqi buildup] was the whole justification for Bush sending troops in there, and it just didn’t exist.”

He escalated the racist war on drugs. In September 1989, in a televised addressto the nation from the Oval Office, Bush held up a bag of crack cocaine, which he said had been “seized a few days ago in a park across the street from the White House . … It could easily have been heroin or PCP.”

Yet a Washington Post investigation later that month revealed that federal agents had “lured” the drug dealer to Lafayette Park so that they could make an “undercover crack buy in a park better known for its location across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House than for illegal drug activity” (the dealer didn’t know where the White House was and even asked the agents for directions). Bush cynically used this prop — the bag of crack — to call for a $1.5 billion increase in spending on the drug war, declaiming: “We need more prisons, more jails, more courts, more prosecutors.”

The result? “Millions of Americans were incarcerated, hundreds of billions of dollars wasted, and hundreds of thousands of human beings allowed to die of AIDS — all in the name of a ‘war on drugs’ that did nothing to reduce drug abuse,” pointed out Ethan Nadelmann, founder of the Drug Policy Alliance, in 2014. Bush, he argued, “put ideology and politics above science and health.” Today, even leading Republicans, such as Chris Christie and Rand Paul, agree that the war on drugs, ramped up by Bush during his four years in the White House, has been a dismal and racist failure.

Oh sure, if the fact that Asia and Airyn were huddled in the home when the alleged shots were fired wasn't enough the kid will just LOVE the fear rush she'd get from an outlaw biker gang showing up next door for a beat down.

This guy is profoundly fucked up and I think anything he claims or says must be treated as the work of a truly sick mind. :(

I must say however, DH did stress via a disclaimer in writing that she did not agree with or endorse the statement thereafter. So good on her for that.

Yes she did - a critical distinction - DH may be into the Heather gossip angle on this but I do not see or intuit any innate malice in her, nor for that matter in PBS.

Two hours is a long time to listen to just gossip so I did FFWD to the critical parts, and thanks again for the link and to Weiner for listing the call-in time stamps.

I’ve been wondering for some time now, though, if you could let your guard down (perhaps break character) for a single post ... and answer a burning question - for me.
What is your favourite food?
