Exhuming Hegel

A few days ago the Daily Mail, one of the premier newspaper in the UK, posted a rather remarkable story about slain Beatle John Lennon. In this piece the Mail rather positively examined the possibility that Lennon was killed as part of a CIA-backed assassination scheme:

"If Chapman looked like a zombie, as he hung around after the killing and waited for the police, it was because that was exactly what he was.

"Chapman, he suggests, had been recruited by the CIA and trained by them during his travels round the world, when he mysteriously pitched up in unlikely places for a boy from Georgia.

"How strange, for example, that Chapman should visit Beirut at a time when the Lebanese capital was a hive of CIA activity — and was said to be home to one of the agency’s top-secret assassination training camps. Another camp was supposedly in Hawaii, where Chapman lived for a number of years.

"And who funded the penniless young man’s round-the-world trip in 1975, which took in Japan, the UK, India, Nepal, Korea, Vietnam and China?

"Money never seemed to be a problem for Chapman, but no one has ever explained where it came from. The distinct possibility remains, in Strongman’s opinion, that the secret service was his paymaster.

"And somewhere along the line his mind was infiltrated. With Chapman, the CIA could have drawn on its long experience of using mind-controlling drugs and techniques such as hypnosis to produce assassins who would eliminate trouble-makers, and ‘patsies’, the fall guys on whom such killings could be blamed."

To those of us that have studied the US intelligence community's obsession with creating a so-called 'Manchurian Candidate', these allegations are old news. Lennon's murderer, Mark David Chapman, had more than his fair share of red flags as did another assassin and fellow Catcher in the Rye enthusiast from the same era that Chapman will forever be linked with: John Hinckley Jr (who the Mail article oddly ignores). What's truly startling is how casually the Mail, an Establishment paper to the T, recounts these claims in a blatant Revelation of Method moment. It's especially insidious when considering the outrageous psy-op being played on the public at present with the whole WikiLeaks fiasco.

Many of you are of course aware of the scandal playing out in public around Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assanage, who was arrested today and denied bail. Already this seems to have triggered some kind of 'cyber war' between the Establishment and the hacker community:

"A group of Internet activists calling themselves Operation Payback have taken credit for shutting down the website of a bank that earlier Monday froze funds belonging to WikiLeaks.

"Announcing its successful hack on a Twitter account, the group declared, 'We will fire at anyone that tries to censor WikiLeaks.'"

This will likely be the first of many such attacks in the coming weeks:

"Hacker coalition Anonymous has launched a slew of cyber assaults against what it perceives to be enemies of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, including a DDoS attack on PayPal, which recently stopped processing donations to WikiLeaks in the wake of the release of U.S. embassy cables.

"Anonymous said it will 'offer Wikileaks an additional mirror and have it Googlebombed' and 'create counter-propaganda, organized attacks (DDoS) on various targets related to censorship.' The group also encourage its members and supporters to spread the cables freely: 'The end goal is a human DNS – something that can only be stopped by shutting off the entire internet,' the collective stated on a poster. "
 For those of us familiar with the Hegelian dialect this is an especially disturbing turn of events, especially in light of information about WikiLeaks that's been bouncing around the net for some time:

"WMR has learned from Asian intelligence sources that there is a strong belief in some Asian countries, particularly China and Thailand, that the website Wikileaks, which purports to publish classified and sensitive documents while guaranteeing anonymity to the providers, is linked to U.S. cyber-warfare and computer espionage operations, as well as to Mossad’s own cyber-warfare activities.

"Our Asian intelligence sources report the following: 'Wikileaks is running a disinformation campaign, crying persecution by U.S. intelligence- when it is U.S. intelligence itself. Its [Wikileaks'] activities in Iceland are totally suspect.' Wikileaks claims it is the victim of a new COINTELPRO [Counter Intelligence Program] operation directed by the Pentagon and various U.S. intelligence agencies. WMR’s sources believe that it is Wikileaks that is part and parcel of a cyber-COINTELPRO campaign, such as that proposed by President Obama’s 'information czar,' Dr. Cass Sunstein."

Many have begun to speculate that we're witnessing an 'Internet 9/11' in the making and for good reason. If there's another terror attack on US soil, or a major military disaster in Afghanistan, or yuppie America simply wakes up one morning to find that their bank accounts no longer exist, the cries for internet censorship will be deafening. That assorted 'hackers' have already declared war on behalf of WikiLeaks only lends further credence to this scenario.

But I'm not sure that the WikiLeaks psy-op is that simple.

9/11 was so effective because it was entirely unexpected to most Americans. Despite what the voting records may say, most Americans were rather apolitical prior to 9/11 -politics simply wasn't viewed as having a great effect on an individual's day-to-day life. That all changed with 9/11 and the following rise of the Truther movement which brought conspiracy theories into the mainstream. Of course, the ground work for the movement was already being laid prior to 9/11 in pop culture and the like, in films such as The Matrix and Fight Club which established the zeitgeist.

The point being, certain segments of the American public have been conditioned to be more skeptical of the party-line than at anytime since at least the 1960s. An internet 9/11 at this point would probably not spur the kind of passive acceptance of the Patriot Act we witnessed earlier in the decade so much as the wholesale anarchy the broke out in many Americans cities in the late 1960s and early 1970s following the collapse of the hippy movement. And that may be exactly the point.

Why settle for censoring the internet when full scale martial law may finally be possible?

UPDATE -12/08/10:

On the thirty year anniversary of the assassination of John Lennon another website goes down in honor of the disinformation campaign that is WikiLeaks. MSNBC notes:

"Hackers claimed Wednesday to have taken down MasterCard's website in retaliation for the company's decision to cut off services to WikiLeaks...

"Attempts to load the MasterCard site Wednesday morning were unsuccessful. A spokesman for the company told msnbc.com that the it did not have any information or comment at this stage.

"The group has also claimed responsibility for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on the website of the Swedish prosecutor's office that is seeking WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for alleged sex crimes, PayPal and the Swiss bank that froze Assange's assets, the BBC reported."
 If credit cards start going out amidst the consumer orgy that is the 'holiday season' things could get very ugly in the streets indeed.


The 30th anniversary of Lennon's death is now being described as the start of a 'cyber war' between pro and anti WikiLeaks factions by Secure Computing Magazine:

"The group leading the denial-of-service attacks on those who arrayed themselves against detained Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange has itself come under fire from US 'patriots', a Spanish information security researcher said.

"Assange's detention this morning in London on Swedish allegations of sexual molestation unleashed total cyberwar between factions opposed to and supporting his release of confidential and classified diplomatic despatches in what has come to be known as 'Cablegate'."


Even Sarah Palin is getting in on the act:

"The website and personal credit card information of former Gov. Sarah Palin were cyber-attacked today by Wikileaks supporters, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate tells ABC News in an email.

"Hackers in London apparently affiliated with 'Operation Payback' – a group of supporters of Julian Assange and Wikileaks – have tried to shut down SarahPac and have disrupted Sarah and Todd Palin’s personal credit card accounts."
Visa's website was also taken down today as well.

Happy 30th, John.


  1. Wow! There's a lot going on right now. I'm almost scared to see what our world will be like in even 5 years.

    Excellent post!!!!

  2. Glad ya liked it.:)

    And thanks for dropping by.:)

  3. Hi

    With respect to the Wikileaks story and not only I recommend you to check out these sites.


    I'm not saying that information there is ultimate truth, but it is worth to paid it a little attention.

  4. Peter-

    Sorry your post was without held from publishing for a few days.

    I cannot endorse the views the websites you link present as they (especially in relation to the 'Illuminati') greatly contradict both my own research and real world experiences. Nor can I support the so-called 'hacktivists' who I feel are leading innocent people down a path that could potentially lead to their ruin while accomplishing virtually nothing in terms of positive change.

    That said, we in VISUP greatly support free speech and alternative views on things and thus we thank you for taking part in the conversation and sharing your views with us.

  5. I came across on your blog accidentally. Seeing that you are sharing your insights on vast amount of topics about nwo, I just wanted acquaint you with information showing nwo agenda in a different perspective. It is not my view on the whole nwo topic. I think we will agree that is very sophisticated arena to explore. To make any valid conclusions you have get through a lot of "crazy" multicontextual information and that is why I will stay on your blog to acknowledge your point of view.

    I am too very suspicious about the developments surrounding wikileaks. One of them is the Anonymous hacker group. As you know they are referring to idea of abolishing the tyrannical government presented in V for Vendetta comic/movie using a masks of Guy Fawkes in their video

    Everything would be fine, but when I see when someone is associating himself to the same ideas and images that are promoting by the satanic Hollywood, my doubts about hidden agenda behind the WikieLeaks are getting stronger.


  6. Peter-

    Wow, I almost would have mistaken the YouTube video for half-assed parody if wasn't actually happening.

    Yes, the Fawkes masks are dead giveaway that this is an esablishment 'rebellion' through and through -At best different factons may be hashing out their differences, but I doubt it even amounts to that.

    And yes, different views are important. For pro-Illuminati arguments, there's no topping DJ Hives and/or Nemesis, who incidentley seems to have returned from another one of his self-imposed exiles. While I don't endorse most of Hives' world view, his logic is hard to find fault in.


  7. Indeed Dj Hives has some good points of view and some valuable info on his site and videos, but his description of the good illuminati is much different than the description of illumiunati on the armageddonconspiracy site.

    The main thing is the existence of hierarchical structure in our world. Hives give it a positive background saying that it is the natural order of our universe. On the other hand authors of the armageddonconspiracy site are claiming this hierarchy is the root of all evil in our world and they want to replace it with meritocracy - quote from the site.

    "Meritocracy, on the other hand, puts talent above family ties and above personal friendship and loyalty. Meritocracy is about giving everyone a chance regardless of their race, background, who they know, what school they went to, what secret society they belong to, which social circles they move in, which private clubs they frequent. In a meritocratic world, dynastic rule would end, and hence the rule of the Old World Order."

    On one side I think that it is a good idea, but on the other something is telling me that there has to some catch to it.

    Nevertheless, thank you for your reply.
    All the best

    PS. Are you familiar with topic such as egregore entities. If you are, can you elaborate in future on this topic.

  8. Peter-

    I would have to read more of the armageddonconspiracy blog before making a serious judgment on their concept of meritocracy, which I plan on doing once I recover from the 13 hour drive I made yesterday.

    I have to say though, from the quote you posted, a few things immediately don't jive. It's undeniable that a good ole boy network exists among the Masons and other lower level members of various secret societies. But the upper levels are almost exclusively based on merit. If there's one thing I completely agree with Hives on, its that no one in the Cryptocracy at the upper levels gets funding unless they work. In general, I think the Cryptocracy is largely responsible for the Western fixation with work ethic over the past few centuries.

    And don't get wrong, work and the merit that comes from quality work is certainly important. But to my mind, what is more important is the purpose to what one labors. For instance, I knew someone once the idealized a professor that had worked for NASA in the 1970s and surely accomplished some fine technical feats there.

    The problem: the bulk of his work went toward creating the GPS system that is now becoming some prevalent in our lives and will likely be put to some especially nefarious purposes in conjunction with RFID chip in the coming years.

    Conversely there was a girl I was in love for a very long time who had a Jewish grandfather that had been a chemist of some repute in Europe prior to WWII. When he came to this country he steadfastly refused to work for any industry or institute remotely connected with defense research. As a result his rather extensive knowledge of chemicals was 'wasted.'

    So, one man gained great recognition for his work while the other died in obscurity needlessly. But who will end up with more blood on their hands? Further, as in the case of the GPS researcher, many people that fall into those fields perceive themselves as working toward the benefit of humanity.

    After all, a GPS system may be a fine thing in a just society, but that certainly is not what will live in. Frequently seeing the final ends of one's labors is a task that many visionary individuals have failed grossly at over the years. I can't help but feel they're taking an overly optimistic view of humanity's potential. I do not believe that humans are innately evil, but I do believe they can rather naively lose sight of their ability to commit evil, especially when visions of utopia dance in their heades.

    And no, I have never heard of egregore entities before though but they certainly sound similar to many topics I'm interested in. Based on the descriptions I've read, it seems like Puharich's the Nine would fit that description as they were summoned by various groups both before and after Puharich's involvement.

    Oddly, the descriptions of egregore entities reminded me of an experiment conducted by the Toronto Society for Psychical Research in the 1970s in which the organization tried to 'create' a ghost in house that had had no prior history of hauntings and succeeded. If you haven't already heard of it, you can read about the experiment here:

    All in all egregores sound interesting to me as they remind me of a wizard's pact with a familiar spirit, but in this case a group pact. For future installments on entities I'll try to focus on instances of group pacts and such if its warranted. I'm already planning on doing something next week on remote viewing so I'll have something more scholarly for you then.:) Thanks for sharing the egregores topic with me.
