across time 

It was a few years ago when I did some research into ‘ancient’ British history – Welsh history in particular. 

I was going back to the valleys for a first visit in over fifty years. Why wouldn’t I want a road map? 

As a child growing up in Wales I wasn’t aware of the ‘Welsh Not.’  We spoke English. The ‘Welsh not’ disappeared as a punishment used in schools sometime around the late 1800’s – not that long ago. 

“The Welsh Not, was traditionally a piece of wood, with the initials W.N carved into it. It was attached to a piece of string. 

If a child in school was caught speaking Welsh (usually their first language) they had to wear the Welsh Not around their neck. 

They could get rid of the Not, but only if they were to overhear another child speaking Welsh, and were encouraged to tell tales on them. Thus, the Not was transferred. 

At the end of the day, the child left wearing the Not, would get caned. This was also the case for the child left wearing it at the end of the week.” 

This way of somewhat forced assimilation is a familiar story to many minority cultures and my only point in mentioning it is to draw attention to what is hidden or ignored in the writing of history. 

The printing press was forbidden in Wales until 1718, many reasons but nonetheless forbidden. I didn’t learn that in childhood. 

King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, dragons, giants and more were part of an enchanted childhood imagination and were discarded as ‘real’ along with Santa Claus. 

And yet … Arthur comes up in Welsh history as real person, Grandson of Tewdrig, son of Meurig and father of Morgan, all of them Kings within what is now South Wales. 

The Llandaff Charters detail gifts of land from King to Church, of who gave what to who, how much, the witnesses – all detailed in the church records. 

‘Don’t shoot the messenger.’ comes to mind. Who pointed me towards the Llandaff Charters was the remarkable Alan Wilson who, along with Baram Blackett, has done remarkable research and been ignored and vilified  without anyone actually contradicting his work. 

There’s a great deal at stake in keeping Arthur as a ‘legendary’ and commercial useful entity based in England. 

Be that as it may, a lovely story follows which, of course, is true regardless of culture.

"Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the 
monarch of a neighbouring kingdom. The monarch could have 
killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, 
the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could 
answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year 
to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had 
no answer, he would be put to death. 

The question?...What do women really want? Such a 
question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and 
to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since 
it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's 
proposition to have an answer by year's end. 
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll 
everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even 
the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could 
give him a satisfactory answer. 

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for 
only she would have the answer. 
But the price would be high; as the witch was famous 
throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she 

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no 
choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the 
question, but he would have to agree to her price first. 
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most 
noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest 

Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and 
hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made 
obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a 
repugnant creature in all his life. 

He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure 
such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the 
proposal, spoke with Arthur. 

He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to 
Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table. 
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered 
Arthur's question thus: 

What a woman really wants, she to be in 
charge of her own life. 

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch 
had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be 

And so it was, the neighbouring monarch granted Arthur 
his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful 

The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling 
himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, 
what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had 
ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot 
asked what had happened? 

The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to 
her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be 
her horrible deformed self only half the time and the 
beautiful maiden the other half. 

Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or 

Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a 
beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in 
the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer 
having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a 
beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments? 

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make 
the choice herself. 

Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be 
beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough 
to let her be in charge of her own life. 

.......... the moral to this story? 

If you don't let a woman have her own way.... 
Things are going to get ugly .

Looking for a problem that doesn’t exist.  

As if there weren’t real issues to deal with on a daily basis, the morning news tells me that a Professor in France claims that white bread is racist. Thankfully, the French immediately mock this nonsense. 

Ah – White privilege. There’s very little white privilege evident in my life. I still managed to get beaten and abused just as happens everywhere to every race, colour and creed. 

I don’t think in terms of class but if I did then my working life has mainly been that of a serf, a peasant and, quite often, an ‘untouchable.’ 

Essential jobs but who wants to do them. I did them with intelligence, flexibility and effort and did them well.   

White privilege? Not if you’re poor. I’ve had choices and I suppose that could be seen as privilege. Living in a democracy, creaky though it be, is still the only viable option compared to the other societal systems all of which lead to the total control model. 

The construction industry here reflects our crumbling society just as it does in China, the U.S., the U.K. and elsewhere -  skyscrapers fall apart, concrete crumbles and flammable covers are placed on the outside of buildings. No privilege but the one of corrupt practice thriving within all societies. 

“… almost as though it never happened.” There’s a lot left out in history which governments of all persuasions would prefer to keep that way. 

China doesn’t want to be bullied and won’t tolerate it. No sanctimonious criticism welcome. 

‘Good on yer, China’ – rhyming slang - ‘China’ goes with ‘plate’ which rhymes with ‘mate’ and is a term of endearment - and no blame to China to remember a history where Britain’s opium wars fueled slavery in China while allowing fragile democracies elsewhere. Some would call that ‘white privilege’ but is it that simple? Just as a ‘whitewash’ indicates a cover up, an elite exists everywhere and it’s  they who prosper regardless of skin colour. The great mass of people are cannon fodder. 

Tiananmen Square gets forgotten – it’s inconvenient truth. Equally so for the sad tale of the USS Liberty which has a yearly memorial and is largely forgotten … never heard of it? …. Israel attacks an American ship, absolutely determined to sink the ship and kill the survivors. If that weren’t treacherous enough, Lyndon Johnson is happy to indulge Israel. Shameful enough and like Tiananmen, to be ‘better forgotten.’ 

9/11 and ‘Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’ continue their quest for corrections to the N.I.S.T report – only to be denied. More inconvenient truths of far greater consequence to the whole world than Tiananmen Square. 

This doesn’t make Tiananmen any the less a terrible event but finger pointing about human rights sounds a bit hollow coming from the Land of the Free with their own dismal record of interference wherever and whenever they’ve seen their business and political interests threatened. 

‘Confessions of an economic hitman’ – lurid title but makes clear the machinations of the U.S. throughout South American countries. 

‘Still an’ all’ - Hooray for Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet all of whom the Communist Party would engulf. Reality check – these countries don’t welcome invasion any more than you do. The Party isn’t China and depends upon the people and not the other way round. 

It’s hard to get through to an Emperor. 

The N.I.S.T. Report, much like the recent UFO disclosure report to the American Congress, … is so incomplete as to be rubbish. Talk about holding the public in contempt. 

Conspiracies and ‘dirty deeds’ have never ceased and most would  remain hidden if not for the internet. 

9/11 was an inside job … not a conspiracy theory but an inevitable conclusion, as the evidence leads for those who care to look. 

Latest email from ‘Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’ … these are credentialed people in their fields with far better things to do than look for a problem which doesn’t exist - and to do so for twenty years. 

     NIST issues blatantly unresponsive — and unlawful —         decision on WTC 7 request 

One day before the July 1 deadline that AE911Truth gave NIST to issue its final decision on our “request for correction” to its report on Building 7 or else face legal action, NIST responded with a blatantly unresponsive — and unlawful — denial of our request.

NIST’s cursory five-page decision boils down to one paragraph, in which NIST baldly asserts that AE911Truth’s approach “has many differences” from NIST’s and that “[d]ue to these differences, the resulting outcomes . . . do not have an impact on the findings and recommendations of NIST’s Final Report….” 

We invite you to read NIST’s final decision as well as the preliminary analysis of our attorney in this effort, Mick Harrison (who is also litigation director of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry). Other documents related to the request can be found at

kidney stones are no fun -that's all this is about. 

Strange times in a six month long, intensely painful chapter of my life. At three score and ten one expects health issues, some self inflicted, others not. 

 Covid wreaks havoc and economies stagger while drought, flood and a whole gamut of earth and solar changes play out regardless of human intervention. 

It’s against this background that kidney stones made their presence felt. A year after Covid arrived and ‘Thank God’ that I live in a country where a small tax on earnings pays for a national health system. Couldn’t afford to live otherwise. 

What I didn’t know before my kidney stones were lasered. 

 I’d thought that the full operation would happen at once. It’s not made clear that the first operation is to insert a stent and that’s it for perhaps months if you’re a public rather than a private patient. 

The three months or so in which I had the stent inserted have been the most difficult and physically painful period of my life. 

This actually is a common experience. 

 I’d given up all exercise by the end of the second month because of blood in my urine, the frequency of need to urinate, the ongoing pain in urination upon which pain killers had little effect and a broken sleep pattern – usually an hour or so at a time. 

Private insurance does apparently allow for the whole operation to take place at one time – stent inserted, stones lasered and removed, new stent put in and, basically, all finished with ten days later with the second stent removed. 

In an odd synchronicity, I was due to meet family at Uluru on the very day my stones were lasered. The text message I got on the day before the operation to let me know time of arrival at the hospital was preceded by a text message from Jetstar letting me know that I should be boarding through Gate 12. 

Can’t make this stuff up. Big Rock missed, small stones lasered and two painted pebbles, on the mantelpiece, given on my birthday by the loving grandkids. 

I have a roof over my head. This makes me wealthy ‘beyond compare’ relative to the mass of humanity now and over our ancestral time on Earth. Hot water on demand, instant fire, a sewage system … I don’t count on it to continue but do count myself blessed to live in Australia. 

I’ve managed to arrive at seventy with little more than a broken bone to deal with – an irritation, an inconvenience but not much more. A few other problems which would have killed me a hundred years ago but – ‘modern medicine’ extends the lifespan. 

I now have an awareness of just how much physical pain people around me deal with on an everyday basis. 

Now I can garden again – the joy of movement, of flexibility returned.

partial disclosure 

It’s early Winter here, cold overnight, cool during the day. I’m a bit restricted in movement at present which gives me more time to ‘continue the education.’ 

As a child of the fifties, not long after the Second World War, the images of the barbarity of concentration camps are still clear in my mind. Huge sympathy for the plight of the Jewish people followed. 

The Palestinians and their plight was and has always been eclipsed by the louder voices and far greater power, influence and resources of those who claim to represent the Jewish people – the Zionist State of Israel. 

Anything – any thought I may have and express about this situation and its imbalance will be dismissed as anti-semitic. 

The same cannot be said regarding the voice of Dr. Gabor Maté, a holocaust survivor. 

China receives criticism or rather the bully boy tactics of the Communist Party receives criticism but North Korea is as dark when seen from space as it is from ground level. A hideous version of Orwell’s 1984 plays out. The conversation between Jordan Peterson and Yeonmi Park is as remarkable as it is moving. 

Disclosure regarding UFO activity is in the news as if it actually WERE ‘news’. It’s not, hasn’t been for decades and if the grainy images thus far released are any indication of what is to come then any disclosure is partial at best. We’ll see soon enough.

antii zionism is not anti semiticism 

The lines are getting longer 

For the poor and the dispossessed 

As the men about the kitchen 

juggle sauce for more is less 

And it’s nowhere near better 

As the vultures hold and swoop 

On the nearest hapless fellow 

drinking cruelty  soup ‑ cruelty soup 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

Another cup of soup you beknighted blighter 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

No bread roll ‑ draw your belt in tighter 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

Have you got the strength left to be a fighter 

Toodle ‑oodle ooo ‑ ‑ Toodle ‑oodle ooo 

The beat is getting stronger 

As the war drums coalesce 

And the call goes out for heroes 

Nothing more and nothing less 

And they’ll say the fight is sacred 

And they’ll say that we are right 

And they’ll want to shock and awe you 

 Into...... “ Darkness is Light” ‑ “Darkness IS Light.” 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

It’s not just happening in a far off country 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

Take a look around we’re the hundreth monkey 

Hi ho ‑ here we go 

How long .............. how long ....  How long ....... how long 

Will this go on......... The lines are getting longer and they’re getting out of line.  

I never thought of myself as sub human - just a human being. No Master Race, no Chosen People - just human.  


The ‘how and the why’ of the existing world financial system, the miracle of the freefall collapse of Building 7 on the day of 9/11,  the ‘isms’ of this world and – are we alone? 

“Investigate the Federal Reserve” said Ezra Pound to Eustace Mullins and so he did. The Federal Reserve is privately owned. It’s not in dispute, it’s on the public record although it’s not widely known. What to make of that? 

Does it matter, does it make sense that a government give over to a private concern the ability to issue money and to charge interest to that government for the printing of that money out of – what is now – thin air? Not just one government but all governments are now beholden to a system of Central Banks. Quantitative Easing – it sounds like a financial laxative. 

9/11 – two planes, three towers – I did the maths. More to the point it was late night here when the first plane struck. I’d turned on the news after a late shift at work and watched everything unfold – for perhaps ten hours.  The Pentagon struck by a ‘something’ – we never got a photo. The plane that went down in Shanksville. Much of the world was sleeping, the rest, perhaps, in ‘shock and awe’. 

And the third tower, the forty seven story high tower, the one not hit by a plane, the one that the University of Alaska’s four year study illustrates and concludes that controlled demolition rather than office fires brought it down yet this startling news doesn’t make world headlines. 

Does it matter, doesn’t it make sense to investigate the event which has destroyed and displaced whole societies, has changed the course of humanity. 

And the ‘isms’ which generally appear to lead to totalitarianism. Fascism, Zionism, Nazism and Communism, Imperialism and the notion of national exceptionalism. The bastardisation of Capitalism. 

Does it matter that I have some understanding of ‘isms’ of this world. ‘Extremism’ and where it comes from comes to mind. 

Somehow, in the world of human affairs as I understand it, man’s inhumanity to man is most starkly expressed in our times by Israel’s actions towards the ever diminishing puddles of land which now make up Palestine. This cruelty is driven by a religious extremism which has nothing to do with any God that I would recognise. 

‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ and ‘Do unto others as you’d have done to yourself’ have no place here. 

a picture's worth a thousand words but only if it's seen 

This isn't a recent depiction of the ongoing theft of Palestinian land but illustrates the nonsense of 70 years and more of peace talks.


I have an old school map of Palestine - had to shine a light on it to get a decent picture. There's symbolism if I needed it.


The Warsaw ghetto is replaced with the Gaza Strip and the mindset of the one oppressor is no different, in essence, to the other.

The Master race and the Chosen people. Debased concepts both.

due diligence  

'climate warming' is replaced by 'climate change' - both are fairly meaningless slogans so I continued my research.

Suspicious Observers present the following:


as we are 

covid continues as do the plans of men and a new world order in which to place those plans. No

'theory'  about it, it's there.

We have no initiations to speak of in modern day society as opposed to the real variety within tribal cultures.

There's a story behind 'white men have no Dreaming' too long to place here.

'fall of an Empire'


'cruelty soup'


and, of course, the mysterious disappearance of Building 7 from public consciousness
