HSBC. More Evidence Of High Level Money-Laundering In London.

Hi Tap,

Whether this piece in yesterday's Telegraph 28/02/2012, by Richard Blackden is in any way relevant to the ongoing Lord James story or not, I don't know. But it is interesting enough in itself I think. I can't seem to get a link to work but it's under the heading of:

HSBC could face US criminal charges & 'significant' fines over 'money-laundering'

HSBC has admitted for the first time it may face criminal charges that could see it hit with 'significant' penalties stemming from a US investigation into alleged money-laundering by Britain's biggest bank.

The main piece of writing then follows the above.

Tap Blog Health Warning. Freedom Might Be Hard For Some People To Bear.

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet writes -

Former fellow of George Soros’ Open Society and current Stanford University scholar Evgeny Morozov has called on Google and other search engines to become thought crime enforcers, by providing warnings about websites that contain “conspiracy theories” such as the belief, held by a majority of Americans, that global warming is not primarily man-made.

Morozov, whose biography confirms him as a well-connected insider, decries in a Slate piece how the Internet is a useful tool for “People who deny global warming” as well as “the anti-vaccination movement,” calling on Google to provide a “socially responsible curated treatment” that would marginalize such beliefs by amending search results.

His solution is to, “Nudge search engines to take more responsibility for their index and exercise a heavier curatorial control in presenting search results for issues like “global warming” or “vaccination.”

Google already has a list of search queries that send most traffic to sites that trade in pseudoscience and conspiracy theories; why not treat them differently than normal queries? Thus, whenever users are presented with search results that are likely to send them to sites run by pseudoscientists or conspiracy theorists, Google may simply display a huge red banner asking users to exercise caution and check a previously generated list of authoritative resources before making up their minds.”

TAP - I'll wear my big red Google banner with pride. I will even advise my readers to exercise great caution before reading what's written on my site. The taste of free thought might be too strong for many former jailbirds.

Morozov describes the potential that such a move will be judged as Google “shilling for Big Pharma or for Al Gore” as “a risk worth taking”.

This represents a similar argument to Cass Sunstein’s “cognitive infiltration,” an effort by Obama’s information czar to slap government warnings on controversial websites (including those claiming that exposure to sunlight is healthy). In a widely derided white paper, Sunstein called for political blogs to be forced to include pop ups that show “a quick argument for a competing view”. He also demanded that taxes be levied on dissenting opinions and even suggested that outright bans on certain thoughts should be enforced.

Giving companies like Google, which has grown to virtually become the gatekeeper of the entire Internet itself and is already engaging in SOPA-like acts of censorship, the power to denote which political and scientific positions are acceptable and which are fringe “conspiracy theories” is an insult to free thinking and smacks of Chinese-style thought control.

Morozov’s argument is also completely undermined by the fact that the two so-called fringe “conspiracy theories” he forwards as being in need of Google’s thought crime control, skepticism about global warming and the dangers of vaccines, are views held by millions of Americans and are not “fringe” at all.

According to the most recent polls, less than half of Americans now believe that global warming is caused by human activity, a number that has been slipping for the past several years.

In addition, polls show that a quarter of Americans, some 75 million of them, believe that vaccines are unsafe and can cause autism. To characterize this as a minority conspiracy belief is like labeling Catholicism as a doctrine of a tiny fringe.

At best, views about global warming and the safety of vaccines can be described as being split, but to claim that skepticism over man-made climate change and the dangers of inoculations are “kooky” fringe conspiracy beliefs, as Morozov does in his article, is brazenly inaccurate and exposes the agenda-driven bias of his rhetoric.

This is further illustrated by the reader comments, which almost universally deride Morozov and attack his argument as being a thinly veiled demand for Internet censorship.

“The day Google starts doing things like this is the day I find a new search engine,” writes one.

“So, you are a supporter of internet censorship? Only of information that you disagree with, of course. So I assume Slate and NAF did not support the recent action regarding SOPA?” adds another.

Morozov’s rhetoric is merely one aspect of the wider move to turn the Internet into an echo chamber of establishment propaganda, drowning out alternative voices to the benefit of large pharmaceutical companies who make billions from selling risky vaccines and scientific bodies whose very survival depends upon the global warming myth being upheld.

It represents another effort to win an information war the establishment is currently losing, as Hillary Clinton herself admitted, by not just creating a new Orwellian Internet Ministry of Truth, as Bill Clinton demanded, but by ascribing this role to the very gatekeeper of the Internet itself – Google.

Serial 'Suicides' Of Tokyo Radiation Whistleblowers

According to a Japanese news outlet, Iza, on July 1st, 2011 63-year-old Mr. Takashi Kabayama was found dead with a plastic bag over his head in his home office.

Kabayama was a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly for the Liberal Democratic Party and had been measuring radiation in an assortment of locations throughout Tokyo.

He would then upload his findings to his blog for the world to read, and on the day before he died (June 30, 2011) he measured 0.25 microSv/h in Mizumoto Park in the Katsushika ward located in Tokyo.

Fukushima Diary reported on February 22, 2012 via Gendai that ludicrously high levels of cesium contamination were discovered, also in Mizumoto Park. These levels were so high that they “turned out to be the same level of [the] ‘off-limits zone’ in Chernobyl.”

It is strange that this hasn’t been brought to the public’s attention sooner, because the fact that he was found at 3 AM July 1, 2011, meaning just a short while after he posted his update, is quite unusual.

Why would someone be taking radiation readings and updating their website the day that they were planning to kill themselves?

According to Fukushima Diary, none of his blog posts suggested that he might be suicidal and “he sounded motivated to measure around Tokyo,” something which hardly seems befitting of someone on the verge of taking their own life.

This is not the only anti-nuclear official who has died recently. In fact, it was reported on January 3, 2012 that 64-year-old Uemura Yasuhiro, town councilor of Kowaura Minamiise Machi Mie was found dead in his car with a shotgun wound to the chest.

Yasuhiro was reportedly taking his shotgun to his farm to keep away crows. Police thought it was suicide or a gun accident, even though the shotgun was reportedly placed outside of the car.

He was an outspoken opponent of the construction of the Ashihama nuclear plant of Chubu Electric Power, and after the Fukushima incident he began traveling around Japan lecturing about the dangers of nuclear power.

If only one official who came out against the horrors of Fukushima had perished in mysterious circumstances I would be more ready to discount the possibility of foul play.

However, when multiple bodies start piling up, all of which are connected to bringing the dangers of nuclear power into the sphere of public debate, I have to start wondering.

I don’t know how it is in Japan, but here in the United States we have what I call a “dual justice system” which treats certain sectors of society completely different than others.

On one side there is the ludicrously wealthy along with police, most politicians, most so-called officials, etc. and on the other side is the rest of us.

This allows for police to literally get away with murdering innocent tourists and brutally assault elderly people (with dementia no less) for no apparent reason only to get a written reprimand among other horrors.

Hopefully Japan is a little different and proper investigations into these mysterious incidents can be launched.

Australia. What A Disgusting Country.

Schapelle Corby

A unique and extraordinary film has been released this week, free of charge, on the internet, via simultaneous upload to networks in territories as diverse as Russia, India, the United States, Japan, China, Vietnam, France, South Africa, and Germany. It is a film, however, which will certainly have long term implications for the state of Australia.

'Expendable', produced under conditions of strict secrecy in the US, demonstrates a lengthy series of corrupt and criminal acts by Australian politicians, sanctioned collectively by an Australian government. These involve not only activities at ministerial level, but central roles for Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers, and a number of prominent corporations.

Demonstrate is the operative word, because these are not allegations. Every abuse of power covered in the film is supported by documented proof, usually in the form of cables and correspondence between government ministers. These were pre-published on the Expendable website for public scrutiny.

Further, collectively, the movie and supporting dossiers are currently being collated for submission to the United Nations, and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

The 'Expendable' film documents the case of Schapelle Corby, a young Australian woman, who was sentenced to 20 years in an Indonesian prison in 2005, when 4.2kg of marijuana was found in her bag as she collected it on arrival in Bali.

The movie tracks the Australian government's response, which included the willful withholding of vital primary evidence. This included the information that 5kg had been added to the weight of her bags after check-in, and that the offending bag was the only one not screened at Sydney airport, which she passed through on route.

The need to hide the systemic scale of post 9-11 corruption at Australian airports, including within the AFP, and the strategic policy of the appeasement of Indonesia, frame these, and a whole series of other acts of hostility against her.

The steps taken to cover this policy, post her trial, are equally appalling. The film shows, supported by indisputable government records, how public opinion was managed, how Schapelle Corby was deprived of funds for an extraordinary appeal, how the AFP's role was hidden, how known abuses of her human rights were ignored, and how a range of other hostile activities were initiated.

From the blurb issued with the film itself: "It presents, and demonstrates, the crushing, pre-meditated, and often brutal acts which a western government is prepared to inflict upon a helpless citizen in pursuit of political expediency."

The lack of plurality of ownership of the Australian media is a point made early in the film segment covering the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). The implications of this resonate to this day.

In Australia, dead men cannot sue, a device which, since the death of Schapelle Corby's father, has been ruthlessly exploited by unethical publishers, to spin and re-spin wholly disproved smears. The 'Expendable' producers present several concise 'insider' interviews, which dramatically expose the shady world which operates under the banner of journalism.

Presenting such objectionable material is by no means limited to the ABC, with the press organs of Fairfax Media, for example, also being prominent.

It is within this climate that, since the Expendable Project began publishing government cables in September 2011, not a single column inch of coverage has been forthcoming in the Australian mainstream media.

Incredibly, authentic correspondence proving gross misconduct and a series of corrupt acts by an Australian government, has been blanked completely,whilst fabricated paid-for smears against a dead man have continued unabated.

News of the release of the film itself is likely to meet a similar fate, as is the involvement of the ICC, the UN, and other international agencies.

Schapelle Corby herself, enduring her eighth year in an Indonesian prison cell, is now mentally ill. At the end of last year, she attempted suicide, via a huge overdose of the drugs she is prescribed for her psychosis. Read full story.

I won't be travelling to the place (Australia) again anyway. I used to do years ago and loved the place, but I'm not going anywhere where you have to be irradiated for dropping in.

Australia continues trying to outdo America's march toward authoritarian control over its population. The two countries seem to be trading salvos to see which can eradicate the rights of their citizens faster.

Australia appears to have taken the lead with their latest proposal to ban travelers who refuse being subjected to the full body microwave radiation scans that have proven to be a horrible invasion of privacy, as well as a legitimate threat to one's health.

The list of assurances from the Australian government via its Orwellian-named Privacy Commission echo similar false guarantees issued by America's TSA: passengers will not appear nude, and the images will be discarded. However, there is no mention of the cumulative negative health effects (particularly to children) of receiving a mandatory mega dose of radiation each time one exercises their right to travel by plane.

Australia's transport minister, Anthony Albanese, cites the unsubstantiated claim that,
...the public understands that we live in a world where there are threats to our security and experience shows they want the peace of mind that comes with knowing government is doing all it can.

Adding for good measure that,

For this technology to work effectively, obviously there can't be an option to refuse screening.

Is Australia going to collapse in to chaos, as the result of corruption and criminals in the government? What about the recent Codex Alimentarius implementation in New Zealand?

QE11 dissolved the government of Australia in the 1970's - the House of Windsor must be aware of (or implicated in?) these events, so I wonder what the Royals think of of all this and what are they doing?

Eugenicist Bill Gates Is In Bed With Monsanto

Sent in by Zheng Yong

Natural News

After it was exposed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the philanthropic brainchild of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010 valued at more than $23 million, it became abundantly clear that this so-called benevolent charity is up to something other than eradicating disease and feeding the world's poor. (

It turns out that the Gates family legacy has long been one of trying to dominate and control the world's systems, including in the areas of technology, medicine, and now agriculture.

The Gates Foundation, aka the tax-exempt Gates Family Trust, is currently in the process of spending billions of dollars in the name of humanitarianism to establish a global food monopoly dominated by genetically-modified (GM) crops and seeds. And based on the Gates family's history of involvement in world affairs, it appears that one of its main goals besides simply establishing corporate control of the world's food supply is to reduce the world's population by a significant amount in the process.

William H. Gates Sr., former head of eugenics group Planned Parenthood

Bill Gates' father, William H. Gates Sr., has long been involved with the eugenics group Planned Parenthood, a rebranded organization birthed out of the American Eugenics Society. In a 2003 interview with PBS' Bill Moyers, Bill Gates admitted that his father used to be the head of Planned Parenthood, which was founded on the concept that most human beings are just "reckless breeders" and "human weeds" in need of culling (

Gates also admitted during the interview that his family's involvement in reproductive issues throughout the years has been extensive, referencing his own prior adherence to the beliefs of eugenicist Thomas Robert Malthus, who believed that populations of the world need to be controlled through reproductive restrictions. Though Gates claims he now holds a different view, it appears as though his foundation's initiatives are just a modified Malthusian approach that much more discreetly reduces populations through vaccines and GMOs (

Gates Foundation has invested heavily in converting Asian, African agricultural systems to GMOs

William Gates Sr.'s association with Planned Parenthood and continued influence in the realm of "population and reproductive health" is significant because Gates Sr. is co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation ( This long-time eugenicist "guides the vision and strategic direction" of the Gates Foundation, which is currently heavily focused on forcing GMOs on Africa via its financing of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).

The Gates Foundation has admittedly given at least $264.5 million in grant commitments to AGRA (, and also reportedly hired Dr. Robert Horsch, a former Monsanto executive for 25 years who developed Roundup, to head up AGRA back in 2006. According to a report published in La Via Campesina back in 2010, 70 percent of AGRA's grantees in Kenya work directly with Monsanto, and nearly 80 percent of the Gates Foundation funding is devoted to biotechnology (

The same report explains that the Gates Foundation pledged $880 million in April 2010 to create the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP), which is a heavy promoter of GMOs. GAFSP, of course, was responsible for providing $35 million in "aid" to earthquake-shattered Haiti to be used for implementing GMO agricultural systems and technologies.

Back in 2003, the Gates Foundation invested $25 million in "GM (genetically modified) research to develop vitamin and protein-enriched seeds for the world's poor," a move that many international charities and farmers groups vehemently opposed ( And in 2008, the Gates Foundation awarded $26.8 million to Cornell University to research GM wheat, which is the next major food crop in the crosshairs of Monsanto's GM food crop pipeline (

If you control agriculture, you control the populations of the world

The Gates Foundation's ties with Monsanto and corporate agriculture in general speak volumes about its real agenda, which is to create a monopolistic system of world control in every area of human life. Vaccines, pharmaceuticals, GMOs, reproductive control, weather manipulation, global warming -- these and many other points of entry are the means by which the Gates Foundation is making great strides to control the world by pretending to help improve and save it.

Rather than promote real food sovereignty and address the underlying political and economic issues that breed poverty, Gates and Co. has instead embraced the promotion of corporately-owned and controlled agriculture and medicine paradigms that will only further enslave the world's most impoverished. It is abundantly evident that GMOs have ravished already-impoverished people groups by destroying their native agricultural systems, as has been seen in India (

Some may say Gates' endeavors are all about the money, while others may say they are about power and control. Perhaps it is a combination of both, where Gates is still in the business of promoting his own commercial investments, which includes buying shares in Monsanto while simultaneously investing in programs to promote Monsanto.

Whatever the case may be, there is simply no denying that Gates now has a direct interest in seeing Monsanto succeed in spreading GMOs around the world. And since Gates is openly facilitating Monsanto's growth into new markets through his "humanitarian" efforts, it is clear that the Gates family is in bed with Monsanto.

"Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really "donating" anything, but instead of paying taxes to state coffers, he invests his profits in where it is favorable to him economically, including propaganda from their supposed good intentions," wrote Silvia Ribeiro in the Mexican news source La Jornada back in 2010.

"On the contrary, their 'donations' finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world ... Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the 'Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa' (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM)."

If you thought Monsanto’s lack of testing on their current GMO crops was bad before, prepare to now be blown away by the latest statement by the USDA.

Despite links to organ damage and mutated insects, the USDA says that it is changing the rules so that genetically modified seed companies like Monsanto will get ‘speedier regulatory reviews’.

With the faster reviews, there will be even less time spent on evaluating the potential dangers. Why? Because Monsanto is losing sales with longer approval terms.

The changes are expected to take full effect in March when they’re published in the Federal Register. The USDA’s goal is to cut the approval time for GMO crops in half in order to speedily implement them into the global food supply. The current USDA process takes longer than they would like due to ‘public interest, legal challenges, and the challenges associated with the advent of national organic food standards‘ says USDA deputy administrator Michael Gregoire.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, problems like public interest (activist groups attempting to bring the dangers of GMO crops to light), legal challenges (farmers suing Monsanto over genetic contamination), and national food standards are all getting in the way of their prime goal — to help Monsanto unleash their latest untested GMO creation. In fact, the concern is that Monsanto may be losing cash flow as nations like Brazil speed genetically modified seeds through laughable approval processes.

Steve Censky, chief executive officer of the American Soybean Association, states it quite plainly. This is a move to help Monsanto and other biotechnology giants squash competition and make profits. After all, who cares about public health?
'It is a concern from a competition standpoint,' Censky said in a telephone interview.
The same statements are re-iterated by analyst Jeff Windau in an interview with Bloomberg:
'If you can reduce the approval time, you get sales that much faster,' said Windau.
If you can reduce the approval time, as in the time it takes to determine if these food products are safe, then you can get sales much faster.

Is the USDA working for the United States consumer, or is it working for Monsanto?

Patricia Finn. Secret proceedings are being held in an attempt to undermine this health freedom lawyer. Harrassment is endless.

Vaccination rights attorney Patricia Finn threatened with criminal charges; New York State demands she surrender names of all clients

Learn more:

Vaccine rights attorney Patricia Finn is being targeted by the Ninth Judicial District of New York State, which has threatened to strip her of her license to practice law and even file criminal charges against her. Finn is one of several "vaccine rights" attorneys across America who helps parents assert their rights to protect their children from potentially deadly vaccines.

She's considered a hero by many, but a villain by the status quo for daring to stand up against the vaccine-pimping medical police state that exists in America today.

I personally interviewed Patricia Finn for InfoWars Nightly News last night (February 27, 2012), and during that interview I saw and read the documents that contain the charges being leveled against her. Watch that full video interview at:

One document described her vaccine rights advocacy as "threatening the public interest," asserting that her helping parents legally and ethically avoid toxic vaccines somehow puts the public at risk. This accusation makes absolutely no logical sense, of course, given that even the vaccine pushers claim their vaccines offer absolute and total immunity against infectious disease. Therefore, how can an unvaccinated child ever threaten the health of a vaccinated child?

New York demands Patricia Finn surrender her list of clients

Perhaps even more alarmingly, a letter outlining the various charges against Patricia Finn included the demand that she immediately surrender her complete list of clients to the judiciary. When I saw this, it immediately set off alarm bells. This is not merely a gross violation of attorney/client privilege; it's also a thinly-veiled attempt for the New York judiciary to terrorize the parents who have sought legal help in opting out of dangerous vaccines.

Furthermore, it could serve as the starting point for New York State to dispatch CPS workers to the homes of all of Finn's clients, where their children might be kidnapped by CPS and sold into sex slavery (this is a common behavior of CPS workers across the country, where low-income children simply "disappear" into the system and suffer ongoing sexual abuse by state workers or even high-paying clients, similar to what happened at Penn State).

I don't have the space to go into all the evidence that CPS functions as a child kidnapping and sex slavery ring, but the organization isn't called "Communist Pedophile Services" for no reason.

Patricia Finn told me during the InfoWars Nightly News interview that she would absolutely refuse to turn over the list of her clients, and that the judiciary even asking for such a list was a violation of state law. She said she would rather lose her law license than betray the trust of her clients.

Geithner Arrested

Stedra Rulz writes -

Here's an interesting rumour:

FOX NEWS Report -
sent by Stedra Rulz.

UPDATE - This from Benjamin Fulford via a reader on Youtube.

Berlusconi was arrested and is singing like a canary. The collapse of the Satanic worshipping financial mafia is accelerating. Geithner was released but is accompanied at all times by an armed deputy to prevent him leaving the USA. Geithner has already admitted that he and Obama work for George Bush. Many more fascinating details.

This afternoon we received a phone call informing us that their were reports Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was arrested, questioned and released by New York Police February 24, 2012. The caller informed us that they were unable to find a single mention of the “reported” arrest on any of the mainstream media outlets websites. After performing a simple Google search we came across a number of “blog” reports claiming Secretary Geithner was arrested in New York, was questioned and then released. Rather than attempt to contact the individual blogs which made the claims, we contacted the Department of the Treasury Press Office.

Speaking with a Ms. Mock in the Treasury Departments Press Office (All media inquiries should be directed to the Press Office at (202) 622-2960) who stated, “Can I ask you to email your request to Natalie Wyeth, as I cannot make any comment on your request. If you would email your request for comment to natalie.wyeth@treasury.govyour request will be resonded to faster.” We did as Ms. Mock requested and sent the below email to Ms. Wyeth who is listed on the Treasury Departments site as “Deputy Assistant Secretary, Public Affairs (International Affairs, Illicit Finance and Enforcement, Tax and Budget, and Economic Policy)”

I haven’t seen those reports – can you please send?

We responded to Ms. Wyeth’s request by sending her the different links to the various reports claiming Secretary Geithner was arrested. In addition we again asked her if she was saying the reports were untrue, “Are you saying that there is no truth to the reports that Sec. Geithner was arrested, questioned and released by NY Police?”

Despite our timely response to Ms. Wyeth’s request for the reports to be sent her, she did not respond confirming or denying the reports. We find the Treasury Departments inability to comfirm or deny a very straight forward report somewhat disheartening coming from an adminstration which has repeatedly portrayed itself as being the most transparent administration in US history.

While the Treasury Department has neither confirmed or denied the report Secretary Geithner was arrested on Feb 24, 2012 we will continue to seek formal confirmation or denial of the report.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Revealed To Have Jewish Past

Wasp sent this in -

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's vitriolic attacks on the Jewish world hide an astonishing secret, evidence uncovered by The Daily Telegraph shows.

By Damien McElroy and Ahmad Vahdat
7:30AM BST 03 Oct 2009

A photograph of the Iranian president holding up his identity card during elections in March 2008 clearly shows his family has Jewish roots.

Ahmadinejad showing papers during election. It shows that his family's previous name was Jewish
A close-up of the document reveals he was previously known as Sabourjian – a Jewish name meaning cloth weaver.

The short note scrawled on the card suggests his family changed its name to Ahmadinejad when they converted to embrace Islam after his birth.

The Sabourjians traditionally hail from Aradan, Mr Ahmadinejad's birthplace, and the name derives from "weaver of the Sabour", the name for the Jewish Tallit shawl in Persia. The name is even on the list of reserved names for Iranian Jews compiled by Iran's Ministry of the Interior.
Experts last night suggested Mr Ahmadinejad's track record for hate-filled attacks on Jews could be an overcompensation to hide his past.

Let's see how Iran's president likes being called 'the Jew Ahmadinejad' 04 Oct 2009
Funny, you don't look Jewish? 03 Oct 2009

Ali Nourizadeh, of the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies, said: "This aspect of Mr Ahmadinejad's background explains a lot about him.
"Every family that converts into a different religion takes a new identity by condemning their old faith.

"By making anti-Israeli statements he is trying to shed any suspicions about his Jewish connections. He feels vulnerable in a radical Shia society."

A London-based expert on Iranian Jewry said that "jian" ending to the name specifically showed the family had been practising Jews.

"He has changed his name for religious reasons, or at least his parents had," said the Iranian-born Jew living in London. "Sabourjian is well known Jewish name in Iran."
A spokesman for the Israeli embassy in London said it would not be drawn on Mr Ahmadinejad's background. "It's not something we'd talk about," said Ron Gidor, a spokesman.
The Iranian leader has not denied his name was changed when his family moved to Tehran in the 1950s. But he has never revealed what it was changed from or directly addressed the reason for the switch.

Relatives have previously said a mixture of religious reasons and economic pressures forced his blacksmith father Ahmad to change when Mr Ahmadinejad was aged four.
The Iranian president grew up to be a qualified engineer with a doctorate in traffic management. He served in the Revolutionary Guards militia before going on to make his name in hardline politics in the capital.

During this year's presidential debate on television he was goaded to admit that his name had changed but he ignored the jibe.

However Mehdi Khazali, an internet blogger, who called for an investigation of Mr Ahmadinejad's roots was arrested this summer.

Mr Ahmadinejad has regularly levelled bitter criticism at Israel, questioned its right to exist and denied the Holocaust. British diplomats walked out of a UN meeting last month after the Iranian president denounced Israel's 'genocide, barbarism and racism.'

Benjamin Netanyahu made an impassioned denunciation of the Iranian leader at the same UN summit. "Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium," he said. "A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies the murder of six million Jews while promising to wipe out the State of Israel, the State of the Jews. What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations."

Mr Ahmadinejad has been consistently outspoken about the Nazi attempt to wipe out the Jewish race. "They have created a myth today that they call the massacre of Jews and they consider it a principle above God, religions and the prophets," he declared at a conference on the holocaust staged in Tehran in 2006.

Thought that was interesting about the guy who supposedly did the shootings that they mentioned that he 'liked' David Icke on his facebook account! That will definitely be used against him. In case you haven't heard it's the latest shoot out in the States.

Ruthless Psychopaths Are Running The World

Hi Tap,

Some people may have already seen this 15 min. video. But to those newer to finding out how this world is really run, this video gives much information about things such as the vaccination programme, eugenics and large scale murder, genocide actually, carried out by 'our rulers'. It's chilling stuff, but very informative.



This is why I walk out each morning, look up in the sky and see airoplanes spewing out poisons.
This is why the water in the tap is disgusting, and needs filtration.
Food is filled with additives that cause cancers.
Vaccinations and pharmaceuticals are thrust at children and adults, which poison their bodies.

New viruses are being developed in laboratories against which we have no resistance.
Old people are targeted for earlier elimination, through vaccination.

The elites that run the world see us as no more than cattle.

The Water In Bath Spa Runs Cold After Thousands Of Years

UPDATE - 6th March 2012. New Bath Borehole...

...has been finished according to the local paper. The temperature of the new borehole is 47 degrees and exceeds that of the Roman Baths! Which is in a hotter spot! The old borehole will be sealed. How does the water get to the Bath Spa then? And what is installed in the chamber underneath the borehole workings? The plot thickens.

BBC admits the baths are in critical condition.

Work has begun in Bath to stop hot springs bursting to the surface and causing its Roman Baths to run dry.

Unless work is done, a geyser up to 26ft (7.9m) high may erupt, diverting water away from the Baths.

Rusting pipe work in an old borehole, which taps into Bath's springs, has resulted in underground water levels rising close to street-level.

A new borehole will be dug 246ft (75m) below ground to replace the old pipe work and safeguard the springs.

The water levels are normally three feet below the surface but have now risen up to three inches below the surface and the city council has said the area is in a "period of risk".

The water that's coming up now fell 4,000 years ago, you don't just turn it off like a tap”

David Lawrence
David Lawrence, from Bath and North East Somerset Council, said: "We've been working with our partners Wessex Water to sink a new borehole, the present Hetling borehole casing drills directly down into the soft material in which the water gathers.

"The difficulty with that is the well head is not secure in that material, with this solution we will be bedding the headgear into rock."

The borehole will be drilled at Hot Bath Street, at an angle of 13 degrees, so it intercepts the base of the Hetling Spring.

"The water that's coming up now fell on the Mendips 4,000 years ago, you don't just turn it off like a tap," said Mr Lawrence.

"We want to make sure we don't lose the hydraulic pressure [of the hot springs] because that feeds the King's Spring in the Roman Baths, it also feeds the Cross Springs and the Thermae Baths over the road here."

Julia writes -

There is a new borehole being drilled next to the Bath Spa, supposedly for a new posh hotel so that very rich non Bath people will have their own private thermal waters access, which is supposed to be good for all the people of Bath.

The December 2011 information (which matches the information currently on the boards in town at the closed off street), says that it is for the new Gainsborough Hotel, and will be complete by mid Jan 2012! It is still going on.

Additionally it says it will provide new plastic piping to save the Hot Springs, which are starting to sound unbelievably fragile. I mean it can't be that difficult can it? The water naturally bubbles to the surface, preheated, as it has for thousands of years!

I have previously reported on Trevor Osbourne, who owns the new hotel, and owns Portleven, and is active in Oxford and London doing dodgy Masonic things. There is no development going on at the planned Gainsborough Hotel, yet the water has already gone cold in the spa.

The waters have been hot since Roman times and no doubt for millennia before that. Why are the management saying the waters are cold on days when 'the heating system is malfunctioning'? What heating system?

TAP - Are they mixing cold mains water with the spa waters to redirect the main flow to the new hotel?

I stumbled on a news item from August 2011 from my local councillors giving completely different reasons for the new borehole, and different funders! Back in August, the borehole was stated as having its main purpose as the replacement of the pipes. There was no other reason given then, no hotel. The council were funding it all back in August.

Now who is paying for it?

A company called YTL. One of those instantly forgettable company names. Quote from Wessex Water, our friendly local utility company, who are doing the work :

"YTL Hotels, the hotel and leisure arm of YTL Corporation Berhad which owns our company, plans to develop Gainsborough Hotel in Beau Street......."

So the same company that owns Wessex Water and the Gainsborough Hotel project, which is all owned and controlled by the same Trevor Osbourne, is now taking control of the very source of the Hot Springs! This is clearly not for the good of the people.

What I don't know is why. Do they want to control the inevitable media attention when the Springs go cold? (as I have been pointing out to The Council, they are already going cold) Do they believe that the springs will stay the same temperature once they can control where the heat goes to?

Like I said before, it is amazing the Bath Spa survived the politics and was reopened in the first place. They must know its all going to change this year, as they direct the heat energy to private paying visitors at the expense of the public, all being denied, of course.

Link to my councillors summary of reason for new borehole in August 2011....

And the text is:

Bath’s Warm Water Spring Repair
Spring repairs aim to keep waters – and visitors – flowing

A precision operation to replace Bath’s “Hetling Spring” Borehole begins next month as part of the Council’s efforts to protect the heritage of the city’s popular thermal water system. This project falls under one of the sections of Cherry’s Portfolio, being to do with Bath Heritage.

Engineers from Wessex Water, working on behalf of the Council, will create a new borehole for the spring to replace the old pipework which is suffering from corrosion. The replacement borehole will drill down from a vault under Hot Bath Street at an angle of 13 degrees in order to intercept the base of the Hetling Spring at 75 metres below street level.

This is a significant piece of precision engineering commissioned by Bath & North East Somerset Council, which means drilling through 80 metres of ground in order to reach the source. This is the first piece of intervention work to be carried out on the hot springs for over a decade but it is necessary for us to maintain the sustainability of the thermal springs system.

The current Hetling borehole casing is made of mild steel which is rotting. We don’t want an unstable source of the thermal waters as it would threaten the whole spring system by affecting the hydraulic pressure that brings the water to the surface. Therefore it’s vitally important that we carry out these works to preserve the springs as an attraction for residents and visitors.

We’re putting the head gear in one of the vaults under the road so we are presently working with a team of archaeologists to explore the foundations of the vaults under controlled conditions. This is part of our commitment to not only protect the source but also to respect the vaults and the overall heritage of the city.

How the repairs will work:

The drilling rig will be set up in Hot Bath Street – set back a reasonable distance from the Hetling Spring to avoid disturbed geological deposits in the spring pipe – and the borehole will be drilled through a pre-formed access hole in the road.
Steel casings will be progressively installed and grouted to seal the upper layers.
Once the carboniferous limestone aquifer rock is reached, at the base of the Hetling Spring, a plastic pipe will be installed to bring the thermal spring water to the surface.

Upon completion of the drilling operation, the rig will be removed and a permanent access cover will be installed in the road above the vault.

Following installation of the headplate, twin 100mm ducts will be laid to carry the piping to the existing Hetling borehole control chamber. The existing Hetling Spring Borehole will then be sealed off.

David Lawrence, the Council’s Divisional Director for Tourism, Leisure & Culture, said: “We are liaising with local traders through the Business Improvement District to explain why we have to carry out the work at Hot Bath Street to ensure that the head gear for the borehole can be placed in solid ground rather than soft sediment, as it is at the moment.

“By carrying out the work, Bath & North East Somerset Council is meeting its obligations under the Avon Act 1982 to protect the important source of the water whilst also promoting the use of the spring system and preserving it for future generations.


UPDATE from Julia

I am coming towards the conclusion that the main purpose of the borehole is to add a pump and a boiler to replicate the heat and force of the springs, so it does not look like they are losing their power. But I don't think they can do it! That's why the project has overrun, and why they had a window of time when the Springs were cooling, before they had the new boiler in. Hence they had to put a new extra boiler into the Bath Spa building to bridge the gap.

Killing Newborns Good Idea, says Journal Of Medical Ethics


Psychopaths writing in the Journal of Medical Ethics want to undo thousands of years of moral advances (largely by way of major world religions) and bring back infanticide.

The Authors argue: “killing a newborn should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.”


A paper published in the Journal of Medical Ethics argues that abortion should be extended to make the killing of newborn babies permissible, even if the baby is perfectly healthy, in a shocking example of how the medical establishment is still dominated by a eugenicist mindset.

The paper is authored by Alberto Giubilini of Monash University in Melbourne and Francesca Minerva at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne.

The authors argue that “both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons,” and that because abortion is allowed even when there is no problem with the fetus’ health, “killing a newborn should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

Is Nigel Farage In The Pocket Of The Israeli Lobbies?

Hi Tap,

Here is the link to the website.

Freethinker, a commenter on this blog says:

Farage is an enemy of the Zionist Entity? Well he's fooled the Jewish Chronicle (and UKIP Friends of Israel and others):

The Jewish Chronicle Online writes -

"It should also be noted that Nigel Farage is a good friend of Israel..."

All the significant British parties are in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies.

Thank You.

From Zheng Yong.

TAP - It's a great way to stay alive, Zheng.

Here's the man himself declaring his total opposition to World Government. Why doesn't he open up on something that's attacking our health every day now, not something in the semi-distant future - chemtrails? That would be a great way to allay any suspicion that he's batting for the other side.

If We Thought Chemtrails Were Dangerous, Here's The Killer Blow - Sulphur Spraying

The nutters who are using chemtrails to degrade human health across the planet while pretending it's a weather modification programme, have more games up their sleeves. They've tried to launch flu pandemics but each time they try, it peters out. Sars, Swine flu, Bird flu and so on. The human immune system seems to be more robust than killer scientists imagined.

Next up, they want to release millions of tons of sulphur into the stratosphere, as they feel confident they can cut human population much faster that way.

Article from Wake Up World (sent in by Zheng Yong)

The health effects of bombarding the skies with sulphur dioxide alone are enough to raise serious questions about whether such programs should even be allowed to proceed.
The following health effects are linked with exposure to sulphur.

- Neurological effects and behavioral changes- Disturbance of blood circulation- Heart damage- Effects on eyes and eyesight- Reproductive failure- Damage to immune systems- Stomach and gastrointestinal disorder- Damage to liver and kidney functions- Hearing defects- Disturbance of the hormonal metabolism- Dermatological effects- Suffocation and lung embolism
According to the LennTech website, “Laboratory tests with test animals have indicated that sulfur can cause serious vascular damage in veins of the brains, the heart and the kidneys. These tests have also indicated that certain forms of sulfur can cause foetal damage and congenital effects. Mothers can even carry sulfur poisoning over to their children through mother milk. Finally, sulfur can damage the internal enzyme systems of animals.”

Even the lead scientist heading up the latest experiment in the UK, Mark Watson, admits that injecting sulphur into the atmosphere could lead to “acid rain, ozone depletion or weather pattern disruption.”

The Canada-based Action Group on Erosion, Technology and Concentration (ETC) responded to the announcement of the test by calling on the British government to shut down the research. “This experiment is only phase one of a much bigger plan that could have devastating consequences, including large changes in weather patterns such as deadly droughts,” the group said in a written statement.

Rutgers University meteorologist Alan Robock also, “created computer simulations indicating that sulfate clouds could potentially weaken the Asian and African summer monsoons, reducing rain that irrigates the food crops of billions of people.”

Of course, killing millions of people in the third world through unintended consequences of geoengineering is probably seen as a price worth paying for the likes of John P. Holdren, White House science czar and strong geoengineering proponent, given that he and other luminaries in the global warming movement want to see global population drastically reduced by means of a “planetary regime” carrying out forced sterilization and other draconian population control measures.

Of course, many would argue that geoengineering projects involving spraying chemicals at high altitudes are already underway through chemtrails. Indeed, last year scientists admitted that emissions from aircraft are forming artificial clouds that block out the sun, but ludicrously claimed that the effect was a natural phenomenon.

In 2008, a KSLA news investigation found that a substance that fell to earth from a high altitude chemtrail contained high levels of Barium (6.8 ppm) and Lead (8.2 ppm) as well as trace amounts of other chemicals including arsenic, chromium, cadmium, selenium and silver. Of these, all but one are metals, some are toxic while several are rarely or never found in nature.

Full article

TAP - Have no doubt. Aerial spraying of all types has nothing to do with climate, and everything to do with killing humans. The elites are in terror of losing their power, and are quickly trying to annihilate humanity before we catch up with where they are, and remove them.

The site Wake Up World has it right. But who is waking up exactly? Not many, and certainly not enough. The main component of chemtrails is Barium. Its effects are equally lethal.

Wake Up World -

KSLA also asked Mark Ryan, Director of the Poison Control Center, about the effects of Barium on the human body. Ryan commented that “short term exposure can lead to anything from stomach to chest pains and that long term exposure causes blood pressure problems.” The Poison Control Center further reported that long-term exposure, as with any harmful substance, would contribute to weakening the immune system, which many speculate is the purpose of such man-made chemical trails.

Indeed, barium oxide has cropped up repeatedly as a contaminant from suspected geoengineering experimentation.

Geoengineering programs conducted by politically-driven scientists who have proven adept at covering up and ignoring contradictory evidence in the global warming debate should not be empowered with the authority and funding to conduct such dangerous tests without a major public debate about the potential consequences.

More sober minds in the scientific community need to become far more public in their opposition to geoengineering to prevent a very real form of man-made climate change that could irrevocably damage our planet for decades to come.

HPV Vaccine Makes Girls Disintegrate

In NOvember 2011 the Daily Mail featured an article stating -

'Girl, 13, left in 'waking coma' and sleeps 23 hours a day after severe reaction to cervical cancer jabs.'

Also in November 2011, the Telegraph reported that the Head Of Hornsey School For Girls in North London, stopped nurses from delivering a range of vaccines, including Cervarix, , because it was found that the girls' behaviour after the vaccinations affected their concentration and caused them to become emotional, which disrupted classroom time.

In October 2011, the Daily mail's headline read,'NHS Trust suspends cervical cancer vaccinations after girl, 14, dies within hours of jab.'

TAP- Did you see Country File at the weekend - all about vaccinating pregnant sheep as if vaccination was the only sure path to health. The whole programme was a non-stop advert for vaccination. Propaganda sent over friendly style to unsuspecting viewers. It made me rage watching it, of course, but mother insisted we watch it.

Today again we see lots of chemtrails overhead. I try to explain to people what they are seeing unfolding above their heads. They just go quiet, unable to reconcile the facts before their eyes with the worldview created by their years of 'education', further reinforced by years of watching TV and Hollywood movies.

Water is poisoned. The air. Food is affected. Vaccinations sterilise and kill. Yet no one wants to even start to take it all in. They reach for a newspaper or a TV screen, to reinforce the happy road to their own destruction.

From Zheng Yong -

Hi Tap,

Perhaps, we all should watch the movie Contagion.

After all, it is a movie about killer virus spreading across the globe.

Maybe there are some clues.

Thank You.

February Fever: Why are Major Bank Executives Resigning Left and Right?

23rd February 2012

By Madison Ruppert

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World PDF D/L in this Link

This month has seen a rash of top level resignations across some of the most major banking institutions across the globe.

There has also been news of potential upcoming resignations which could have a considerable impact as well, not the least of which is the potential resignation of Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive officer (CEO) of Goldman Sachs.

According to Fortune, this could occur as early as this summer, although this is still merely a possibility and far from set in stone.

However, there are many very real and quite perplexing instances of bank heads quitting across major institutions like the World Bank, the Nicaraguan Central Bank, Kuwait’s Central Bank, two of Slovenia’s biggest banks and more.

t appears this trend began some time early this month, perhaps with the resign of Amitabh Chaturvedi, the CEO of Dhanlaxmi Bank Ltd on February 6.

This was supposedly due to Chaturvedi having “serious differences with the board regarding the strategies of the bank. He had different views on several issues. It was coming,” an anonymous bank official told Mint.

Chaturvedi’s resignation was just the beginning. On February 10, Business Standard reported that A K Jagannathan, the managing director and chief executive of Tamilnad Mercantile Bank resigned, citing personal reasons.

Then, on February 13, the Washington Post reported via the official Kuwait News Agency that Sheik Salem Abdulaziz Al Sabah, a member of the Kuwaiti royal family, resigned after 25 years heading up the nation’s central bank.

While the brief announcement gave no immediate reason for the move, internal speculation surrounds his opposition to increased domestic spending, including wage increases.

Just the next day, the head of the Nicaraguan Central Bank, Bloomberg reported that Antenor Rosales quit, apparently over disagreements with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, however an official statement claimed that the resignation was “normal government procedure” and not the result of a disagreement.

The following day brought reports of the CEOs of Slovenia’s two largest banks stepping down along with theplanned resignation of World Bank President Robert Zoellick, who will leave the bank on June 30.

Then the next day, February 16, the chief financial officer of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ANZ Bank) resigned after 15 years as the bank’s CFO. Also on that day, it was announced that Andrew Check would lead the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Australian arm after Stephen Williams resigns in the next three to six months.

On the February 17 the news broke of Blankfein’s possible future resignation along with Bloomberg reporting that Credit Suisse Group AG’s private bank in Signapore’s chief Asian economist, Joseph Tan, resigned.

On February 18 the British Daily Mail reported that Germany’s president, Christian Wulff, resigned over a scandal involving an attempt to gag a press investigation into political favors and possible bribes. While this obviously isn’t a bank executive, it is noteworthy nonetheless as it is still part of the trend of prominent individuals resigning, quitting and otherwise stepping down from their position of power.

The reasons behind this trend are unknown as of yet and indeed they could not be connected in any way, yet I think that is highly doubtful. I am not yet prepared to speculate as to why this is happening with such frequency right now, however I will say that I hope it is due to some serious changes being made in the financial system – hopefully for the good of us all.

That’s 9 resignations in eleven days, we have not included the other resignations from the likes of the head of the central bank in Switzerland a month ago, and the talk of the head of Goldman Sachs leaving. Why are the heads of very large financial instutitions resigning? Corporate governance experts would say that people resign to make room for new policies, and way of doing things, but this is a peculiar situation of contagion amongst those with key exposure.
The first to see the flame, usually leave the building, maybe this is not the case, nonetheless, such events with obvious patterns should be taken note of.
