Do you just accept what you see on tv or hear on the radio…probably not, most people will question but only so far, until it causes some discomfort…I was like this…kept an eye on what was happening in the world…didn’t like it much , would maybe discuss certain issues of the day with friends and colleagues, until the inevitable conclusion that the events happening are bigger than us average joes.
………that was before,
before I received a nasty “wake up ” call
I suffered several what can only be described as psychological attacks. Which were basically Gangstalking/Gaslighting incidents, please google any/all terms. Since they happened I researched the subject on the internet in earnest, and….low and behold the veil slowly lifted….and BANG! there it is - Big Brother New World Order being implemented at a phenomenal pace right here in the UK.
Please find below details recently sent by one of our members. Can we all do what we can to get the word round on this and give any help possible.
Anything that can be done for John Boncore, or ¨Splitting the Sky´ would be a great thing and reinforce the essence of The Whole Truth. Please circulate among the WTC network.
A very brave man of this earth who needs all our support and solidarity.

Please forward widely! (This message has been already been sent to the Calgary Activist google group website & will be posted there in time/maybe hours from 9p.m. Monday May 11th)
Splitting The Sky, the man who tried to make a peaceful citizens arrest of George Bush, will be in court at Calgary Court Centre on May 14th with his lawyer Charles Davison at 9 am. Please show your support for Splitting the Sky and attend court!
The address of Calgary Court Centre is 601-5th street S.W. The court case is expected to be on the 3rd floor. Splitting The Sky also has the name Jon Boncore. Please look for the name Jon Boncore on a screen outside the court rooms of the 3rd floor. You can also ask staff at a desk on the third floor which court room Jon Boncore is in. The Court Centre has airport style security by the main door, so please allow time for that.
May 14th 2009 starting at 9a.m. Please try to be in the court room before 9 a.m. because the case may start at the time it is scheduled to.
Splitting the Sky and his lawyer Charles Davison say that citizens have the legal right to arrest George Bush. On March 17th, when Bush was in the Telus Convention Center in Calgary, Splitting the Sky tried to make a peaceful citizens arrest of George Bush. Next, Splitting the Sky was, as he wrote “pushed to the ground with sniper bullets and tasers pointed directly” at him, arrested, and put in a jail with “rancid” conditions where he was beaten and thus injured.
Date: Fri, 1 May 2009 08:02:10 -0700
On May 14th, 2009 I will appear in court with my Charles Davison to enter a plea of not guilty to the charge of obstruction of police officers in the performance of their duty.
In fact I actually instructed the police force present to arrest George Bush for war crimes according to the Canadian criminal code and formal request made by the Lawyers Against War, signed by Gail Davidson to the head of the RCMP in Ottawa seeking his arrest as well.
The police establishment were and still are completely unwilling to arrest this and other self proclaimed torturers and murderers and in the absence of their willingnes to perform the arrest I came to a conscious decision to perform a citizens arrest on Bush.
I was immediately pounced on, thrown to the ground with sniper bullets and tasers pointed directly at me and brutally assaulted and handcuffed after breaking the police line not to mention being assaulted in the police station were I was held overnight in rancid conditions.
So in all actuality the police obstructed me in the performance of my duty to humanity to arrest these insane perpetrators of torture and murder who must answer for their crimes.
At this particular moment in time Spain has decided it will seek the arrest of 6 of Bushes administrators for torture and as well Great Britain is looking at the same possibilities.
I will be at the University of Calgary to let Condi Rice know she is also wanted for signing off on the Bybee torture memo and instructing the CIA that they were in their rights to torture and murder in the interest of US national security.
That said I am in serious need of you help to raise funds to pay for defense and all other related costs.
If you are able to send financial support please make check or money order out to
PO Box 1492
Or if you want to send a bank tranfer please call 250-679-7743 or email this address to discuss details for transfer.
I want to thank the few who have helped so far and encourage others to think of ways to help raise support. A special thanks to David at www.afterdowningstreet.org and Wayne at www.warcriminalsout.com Gail and Charles at Lawyers Against War (LAW) and my family and friends.
I just can’t do it alone, Peace and love and thank you.

John Farmer, the Senior Counsel to the 9/11 commission, says in a new book that the government agreed not to tell the truth about 9/11. Farmer is a former New Jersey attorney general and served as Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (officially the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon The United States).
The new book about Farmer’s experiences working with the commission is titled The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11. The book reveals how “the public had been seriously misled about what occurred during the morning of the attacks,” and also that “at some level of the government, at some point in time… there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened.”
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is the publisher of the book. According to Harcourt, “Farmer builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version not only is almost entirely untrue but serves to create a false impression of order and security.”

It is August and in a small town on the South Coast of France the holiday season is in full swing, but it is raining so there is not too much business happening and everyone is heavily in debt.
Fortunately, a rich Russian tourist arrives in the foyer of the small local hotel. He asks for a room and puts a Euro100 note on the reception counter as a deposit. He takes the key and goes to inspect the room located up the stairs on the third floor.
The hotel owner takes the banknote in a hurry and rushes to his meat supplier to whom he owes E100. The butcher takes the money and races to his supplier to pay his debt. The wholesaler rushes to the farmer to pay E100 for pigs he purchased some time ago.
The farmer triumphantly gives the E100 note to a local prostitute who gave him her services on credit. The prostitute goes quickly to the hotel, as she was owing the hotel for her hourly room use to entertain clients.
At that moment, the rich Russian is coming down to reception and informs the hotel owner that the proposed room is unsatisfactory, takes his E100 back and departs.
There was no profit or income. But everyone no longer has any debt and the small townspeople look optimistically towards their future.
COULD THIS BE THE SOLUTION TO THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRUNCH?

Reclaiming Our Sovereignty
Once again, we have reached a crossroads in our history. We are confronted with an enemy that would destroy our nation and its people. We have some hard decisions to make - each of us, individually. Are you prepared to make them?
The British Constitution Group’s call for Lawful Rebellion now moves up a notch and our campaign ‘Wanted – 1 million rebellious Britons’ has commenced, to be formally declared at our conference in London on the 13th June.
If you share our ambition to take back control of our country, then we need your commitment and attendance at this conference, at which we will outline our strategy to build our campaign into a force to be reckoned with.
There is a national mood for rebellion shared by patriots the length and breadth of the country. This must be harnessed under a single campaign with carefully defined objectives in order to win the war to claim back our sovereign right to govern ourselves.
Make no mistake about it, this is a war.
Fought by our enemies (within this country) with the weapons of lies, deceit, subterfuge and betrayal, their aim is to destroy the prinicple of the nation state, and replace it with regionalised global dictatorship. In order to win, we must be prepared to tell the truth about our plight to fellow Britons, the majority of whom exist in an awareness vacuum or a state of abstract denial.
We cannot go to war without an army and ‘Wanted – 1 million rebellious Britons’ is the foundation to building that army. We know that millions of our fellow countrymen and women share our views but most have been rendered impotent, convinced that there is nothing that we (the majority) can do to challenge the authority of a duplicitous minority.
Our task is to cajole, encourage, persuade, prod, push and insist that the nation rally to our cause and sign up to lawful rebellion as the only means by which we can now take back control of our country.
An honest majority can impose their will, peacefully and lawfully, on the dishonest minority - if they have the collective will to do so. It is our challenge, indeed our duty, to rally the nation around this cause.
We need ordinary Britons in their masses to unite behind our campaign. We need to invoke our Constitution, restate our right to govern ourselves and educate a dumbed-down populous to the reality of their virtual enslavement - a harsh fact that few will recognise or are prepared to accept as true despite overwhelming evidence.
We are over-regulated, over-taxed, spied on, burdened by bureaucracy and political correctness, to the extent that we are even told the words and phrases that we can and cannot utter. Thieves, muggers and drug dealers escape with meaningless cautions, whilst the law abiding majority are fined and harassed by a militia-like officialdom who themselves take orders from compliant and controlled strata of middle mangers with an inflated sense of self-importance, hand-picked for their enthusiasm for social engineering and their busy-body mentality.
These people must be challenged; made to realise that they are working to an agenda of destruction, in which moral values are abandoned, families devalued and society fragmented and manipulated. Whilst we are all caught up and distracted in the chaos so inflicted, the way is clear for the power elites to build their edifice from which they can look down and control us.
Each one of us should know and take heart that we are pushing back the tide of deceit. The elite’s plans are exposed - never before has the collective political establishment (the puppets of the elite) been so despised and distrusted.
We know our enemies’ strengths and we know they are enormously powerful, but we also know their weaknesses. We know that ultimately our power once harnessed is much greater than theirs. Our power so harnessed is their greatest fear.
Our power comes from our numbers and our ability to funnel these into a single campaign with the objective of taking back control. Our ability to harness this power comes from our preparedness to tell the truth about our predicament, to alert the wider public and fire their passion for freedom and true democracy. They know they are being conned by a dishonest and self-serving elite, they just need to know that there is a way in which they can be empowered. We must offer the direction and inspiration for others to follow. It is up to YOU to carry that message to the wider audience.
Do you have the courage to do so?
If you are willing to play a part in reclaiming our national sovereignty then you will need to grasp the truth of the situation, which is that the three main political parties are controlled by a global elite… whose agenda will not be disrupted one iota by elections, no matter who wins. The Brown, Cameron, Clegg show is just that… a play in which the actors create an illusion that they are in charge, but in reality it is the directors behind the scenes, hidden from our view, who are firmly in control and who will not be revealed to us until the final curtain falls – by which time it will be too late.
We are calling for our Constitution to be reinstated and our laws to be upheld, but even these are useless in the face of tyranny and oppression – ultimately they require the people to stand up and defend them.

We the British people have a right to govern ourselves, but that right can only be enforced by the people themselves.

The conspiracy behind vaccines, AIDS, and how the original and dangerous 1976 swine flu vaccination was ‘vaulted’ for future use.
A LABOUR peer who lives in the East End of London has claimed about £100,000 in parliamentary expenses on a flat in Kent that neighbours say has been unoccupied for years.
Baroness Uddin, who worked closely with Tony and Cherie Blair, has been claiming allowances intended for peers living outside London although she resides only four miles from the Lords.
Inquiries by The Sunday Times have established that the baroness bought a two-bedroom flat in Maidstone in 2005 and has named it as her main home to claim almost £30,000 a year in accommodation expenses from the House of Lords.
Residents from the five other flats in the same block as Uddin’s property all say they have never seen her there. They could see through the windows that the bedrooms were unfurnished.
Eyes dart from behind surgical masks as the few pedestrians still on the streets walk briskly through a city in lockdown. A cough or a sneeze from a passer-by only quickens the pace.
Mexico City, usually a megalopolis of 20 million inhabitants, lies all but abandoned. All government offices and businesses deemed non-essential have been ordered to close. All schools, restaurants and nightclubs have pulled down the shutters. All public events cancelled.
A few cars glide freely along empty freeways, which on any other day would be choked with beeping, fuming traffic. The few shops and takeaways that remain open offer a limited service, ordered to avoid creating potential gathering places that might spread further contagion.
At the handful of supermarkets that have been told to stay open, staff are shrouded in protective clothing and wash their hands repeatedly during their shifts. The food processing factories have been shut down, and in some areas emergency teams are preparing to deliver food to the hungry.
As NewsBusters reported here, here, and here, there are huge dollars to be made from global warming alarmism. However, conceivably no one is better positioned to financially benefit from this scam than Dr. Global Warming himself, former Vice President Al Gore, a fact that the media will surely not share with Americans any time soon.
Yet, if America’s press would take some time out of their busy schedules covering the earth-shattering details surrounding Anna Nicole Smith’s demise, they might find a deliciously inconvenient truth about the soon-to-be-Dr. Gore that is significantly more fascinating and diabolical than anything likely to emerge from that courtroom in Broward County, Florida.
Former Vice President Al Gore has built a Green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can’t afford to play on Gore’s terms. And the US portion is headed up by a former Gore staffer and fund raiser who previously ran afoul of both the FEC and the DOJ, before Janet Reno jumped in and shut down an investigation during the Clinton years.
Grace Robertson removed her daughter Elysha, seven, who has an illness so rare it has no name, from Newman Special School in Rotherham because she did not think she was making progress.
Rotherham Council’s social services department, backed by the school, say that Elysha could be suffering isolation and missing the company of children by being kept at home.
Now they have ordered a case conference, using a law relating to child abuse and neglect to review Elysha’s future education at a special hearing.
At the age of two Elysha was struck down by a disease, similar to motor neurone disease, but so rare doctors worldwide have been unable to identify it.
Although her mental ability is like any other seven-year-old, over the last give years the illness has robbed her of the use of the upper half of her body. She now communicates with her feet and she feed through a tube in her stomach, while she breathes through a special mask at night.
Her parents Mrs Robertson, 34, and husband Martin, who have another daughter, Shannah, 11, have been told they must attend the conference, called under section 47 of the Children’s Act 1989 which covers children who are suffering or are in danger of suffering ’significant harm’.
Prof Julian Le Grand, the architect of a clutch of New Labour policies such as baby bonds, is calling for marriage to be the legal “default” setting for new parents.
Without having to undergo a public ceremony or take any vows, they should simply be regarded as married in law as soon as the child’s birth is registered, Prof Le Grand, Tony Blair’s former Downing Street health adviser, said.
Those who later decide to separate would have to go to court to seek a divorce in exactly the same way as a couple who had married formally in church or a register office.
The London School of Economics professor, who is also chairman of Health England, argued that the idea would make family units more secure.
Ann Widdecombe, the Conservative MP, rejected it as “ludicrous” and warned that it could spell the death of marriage.
The academic has attracted controversy in the past with calls for smokers to be forced to buy permits before they can buy cigarettes and the introduction of separate supermarket checkouts for alcohol to put people off buying drink.
The study has prompted calls for further research into the possibility of adding lithium to drinking supplies – like water fluoridation to improve dental health.
Researchers at Oita University in Japan measured natural lithium levels in tap water in 18 communities in the surrounding region of southern Japan.
The lithium levels ranged between 0.7 micrograms per litre and 59 micrograms per litre.
The researchers then calculated the suicide rate in each of the 18 areas. They found that the suicide rate was significantly lower in those areas with the highest levels of lithium in the water.
Writing in the British Journal of Psychiatry, the researchers said: “Our study suggests that very low levels of lithium in drinking water can lower the risk of suicide. Very low levels may possess an anti-suicidal effect.”
‘A baby was placed into care and is facing adoption after a psychologist misdiagnosed the mother’s mental state. The child has been in foster care for six months even though experts have said that the mother posed no immediate risk. A psychologist told Ipswich County Court this week that she had inaccurately assessed the mother as having factitious illness, formerly known as Munchausen’s by proxy.
That assessment resulted in Suffolk County Council putting the baby on the childcare protection register. The diagnosis was based on accusations that the mother had made up illnesses for her son from another relationship, which she denied. The diagnosis was changed after a psychiatrist said that there was no evidence that the mother had fabricated anything about her son.’
‘Officers were last night accused of abusing their powers after it emerged just one per cent of around 124,000 “suspects” targeted in 2007/08 were arrested - and only a fraction of those were for terrorism related offences. Nearly 90 per cent of the searches were carried out in London by the Metropolitan Police, which saw a 266 per cent increase, with the aftermath of the attempted nightclub bombing in the Haymarket in the summer of 2007 blamed for the rise.’
Little by little, the Illuminati bankers are dropping their mask and revealing the evil agenda behind current events. What is called “progressive” and “liberal” is in fact satanic. What is called “revolution” is aimed at overthrowing God –the natural and spiritual (moral) order– and replacing Him with dictates of devil worshipers, the Rothschilds and their lackeys.
When we read about “Hate Laws” that protect pedophiles, sex education for five-year-olds, the promotion of homosexuality to heterosexuals, we must see them in spiritual context, as the Luciferian overthrow of all that is natural, healthy, true and good, turning the world upside down, i.e. “revolution.”
When we hear about pig flu, let’s keep our focus on the big picture. We are infected by a more serious and widespread cancer, satanism, under the guises of communism, liberalism, socialism, zionism, fascism, feminism and globalism. Luciferianism permeates society in the form of materialism, naturalism, occultism, obscenity, sadism, violence, pornography and promiscuity.
No coincidence that Obama asks that Christian symbolism be covered when he speaks. Can you imagine him making the same request at a Jewish or homosexual venue? Obama’s own symbolism is Illuminati, reminiscent of the Lucis (Lucifer)Trust. All our leaders covertly signal their true loyalty to Lucifer.
Israel warned the European Union on Thursday to tone down its criticism of the new Israeli government or risk forfeiting the bloc’s role as broker in Mideast peace efforts.
The warning came after EU’s commissioner for external relations, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, this week criticized Israel’s refusal to endorse a Palestinian state. She said an upgrade in Israeli-EU relations would depend on Israel’s commitment to the “two-state solution.”
It also came ahead of a planned trip to Europe next week by Israel’s foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman - his first official trip abroad. The ultranationalist Lieberman’s comments about Arabs and Mideast peace have raised international concerns about the new Israeli Cabinet’s intentions.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor on Thursday called Ferrero-Waldner’s comments “very militant” and contrary to understandings with other EU officials.
He said her remarks threatened to undermine understandings with the EU to maintain a “quiet dialogue” until Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu completes the formulation of his foreign policy.
Menwith Hill Aerial Photo: Yorkshire CND
Man has climbed the highest mountains; he has penetrated the densest forests, crossed the greatest deserts and descended miles below to the murky depths of the ocean floor. He has conquered the skies, the land and the sea, but there is one battle he has not won – yet – the battle to conquer the mind.
In a sleepy suburb on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Margaret Newsham is attempting to lead a normal life away from the days where she worked at a giant listening station at RAF base Menwith Hill in Yorkshire, England. Despite this, she is unable to escape her past.
She sleeps with a loaded gun under her bed and is protected by her 120-pound German shepherd, who is trained to guard and attack. At any time, certain factions in the NSA and the CIA may attempt to silence her for her role in the most extensive espionage network on earth, capable of tapping into millions of phone calls an hour: project ECHELON.
Mrs. Newsham was an employee for Lockheed Martin, the largest munitions suppliers to the US military and intelligence agencies, the NSA and CIA. Newsham says:
“It is almost impossible to tell the difference between NSA agents and civilians employed by Lockheed Martin, Ford and IBM. The borderlines are very vague. I had one of the highest security classifications which required the approval of the CIA, the NSA, the Navy and the Air Force. The approval included both a lie detector test, and an expanded personal history test in which my family and acquaintances were discretely checked by the security agency.”
For her part, Newsham was regretful for the part she played in spying on politicians and ordinary people:
“On the day at Menwith Hill when I realized in earnest how utterly wrong it was, I was sitting with one of the many ‘translators’. He was an expert in languages like Russian, Chinese and Japanese. Suddenly he asked me if I wanted to listen in on a conversation taking place in the US at an office in the US Senate Building. Then I clearly heard a southern American dialect I thought I had heard before.”
“Who is that?” I asked the translator who told me that it was Republican senator Strom Thurmond. ‘Oh my gosh!’ I thought. We’re not only spying on other countries, but also on our own citizens. That’s when I realized in earnest that what we were doing had nothing to do with national security interests of the US.”
‘Now I know what Greg Dyke, former boss of the BBC, meant by the phrase ‘hideously white’. At the Optimum Population Trust’s invitation-only conference at the end of last week, ‘Environmentally Sustainable Populations’, there was a sea of white faces, grey hair, purple-tinted rinses and blue blazers, as men and women of a certain hue, age and class gathered to discuss the ‘problem’ of population growth.
In plummy voices – and in between House-of-Lords-style catnaps, perhaps taken to re-energise their prejudicial streaks – the attendees spoke darkly of ‘decimation’, ‘apocalypse’ and ‘tipping points’ (which is enviro-speak for apocalypse) in a world plagued by ‘too many people’.’
BRITAIN appears to be evolving into the first modern soft totalitarian state. As a sometime teacher of political science and international law, I do not use the term totalitarian loosely.
There are no concentration camps or gulags but there are thought police with unprecedented powers to dictate ways of thinking and sniff out heresy, and there can be harsh punishments for dissent.
Nikolai Bukharin claimed one of the Bolshevik Revolution’s principal tasks was “to alter people’s actual psychology”. Britain is not Bolshevik, but a campaign to alter people’s psychology and create a new Homo britannicus is under way without even a fig leaf of disguise.
The Government is pushing ahead with legislation that will criminalise politically incorrect jokes, with a maximum punishment of up to seven years’ prison. The House of Lords tried to insert a free-speech amendment, but Justice Secretary Jack Straw knocked it out. It was Straw who previously called for a redefinition of Englishness and suggested the “global baggage of empire” was linked to soccer violence by “racist and xenophobic white males”. He claimed the English “propensity for violence” was used to subjugate Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and that the English as a race were “potentially very aggressive”.
In the past 10 years I have collected reports of many instances of draconian punishments, including the arrest and criminal prosecution of children, for thought-crimes and offences against political correctness.
Countryside Restoration Trust chairman and columnist Robin Page said at a rally against the Government’s anti-hunting laws in Gloucestershire in 2002: “If you are a black vegetarian Muslim asylum-seeking one-legged lesbian lorry driver, I want the same rights as you.” Page was arrested, and after four months he received a letter saying no charges would be pressed, but that: “If further evidence comes to our attention whereby your involvement is implicated, we will seek to initiate proceedings.” It took him five years to clear his name.
Page was at least an adult. In September 2006, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, Codie Stott, asked a teacher if she could sit with another group to do a science project as all the girls with her spoke only Urdu. The teacher’s first response, according to Stott, was to scream at her: “It’s racist, you’re going to get done by the police!” Upset and terrified, the schoolgirl went outside to calm down. The teacher called the police and a few days later, presumably after officialdom had thought the matter over, she was arrested and taken to a police station, where she was fingerprinted and photographed. According to her mother, she was placed in a bare cell for 3 1/2 hours. She was questioned on suspicion of committing a racial public order offence and then released without charge. The school was said to be investigating what further action to take, not against the teacher, but against Stott. Headmaster Anthony Edkins reportedly said: “An allegation of a serious nature was made concerning a racially motivated remark. We aim to ensure a caring and tolerant attitude towards pupils of all ethnic backgrounds and will not stand for racism in any form.”
A 10-year-old child was arrested and brought before a judge, for having allegedly called an 11-year-old boya “Paki” and “bin Laden” during a playground argument at a primary school (the other boy had called him a skunk and a Teletubby). When it reached the court the case had cost taxpayers pound stg. 25,000. The accused was so distressed that he had stopped attending school. The judge, Jonathan Finestein, said: “Have we really got to the stage where we are prosecuting 10-year-old boys because of political correctness? There are major crimes out there and the police don’t bother to prosecute. This is nonsense.”
Finestein was fiercely attacked by teaching union leaders, as in those witch-hunt trials where any who spoke in defence of an accused or pointed to defects in the prosecution were immediately targeted as witches and candidates for burning.
Hate-crime police investigated Basil Brush, a puppet fox on children’s television, who had made a joke about Gypsies. The BBC confessed that Brush had behaved inappropriately and assured police that the episode would be banned.
A bishop was warned by the police for not having done enough to “celebrate diversity”, the enforcing of which is now apparently a police function. A Christian home for retired clergy and religious workers lost a grant because it would not reveal to official snoopers how many of the residents were homosexual. That they had never been asked was taken as evidence of homophobia.
Muslim parents who objected to young children being given books advocating same-sex marriage and adoption at one school last year had their wishes respected and the offending material withdrawn. This year, Muslim and Christian parents at another school objecting to the same material have not only had their objections ignored but have been threatened with prosecution if they withdraw their children.
There have been innumerable cases in recent months of people in schools, hospitals and other institutions losing their jobs because of various religious scruples, often, as in the East Germany of yore, not shouted fanatically from the rooftops but betrayed in private conversations and reported to authorities. The crime of one nurse was to offer to pray for a patient, who did not complain but merely mentioned the matter to another nurse. A primary school receptionist, Jennie Cain, whose five-year-old daughter was told off for talking about Jesus in class, faces the sack for seeking support from her church. A private email from her to other members of the church asking for prayers fell into the hands of school authorities.
Permissiveness as well as draconianism can be deployed to destroy socially accepted norms and values. The Royal Navy, for instance, has installed a satanist chapel in a warship to accommodate the proclivities of a satanist crew member. “What would Nelson have said?” is a British newspaper cliche about navy scandals, but in this case seems a legitimate question. Satanist paraphernalia is also supplied to prison inmates who need it.
This campaign seems to come from unelected or quasi-governmental bodies controlling various institutions, which are more or less unanswerable to electors, more than it does directly from the Government, although the Government helps drive it and condones it in a fudged and deniable manner.
Any one of these incidents might be dismissed as an aberration, but taken together - and I have only mentioned a tiny sample; more are reported almost every day - they add up to a pretty clear picture.
