The Unofficial Dan Burisch Chronicles Part Four – Novel Time Chatter

by
I would begin at the beginning, but I don’t believe anyone but God knows where to begin.
This is the continuing saga of Dan and Marcia, and their story is very much an ongoing concern.
But, for now, I want to focus on their relationship with one Gordon Novel, and where these two stories come together is … well, it concerns every last human here and gone.
Did you know we survived the Cycles Cross? The what? One may ask.
See … before you ever had a reason to be concerned about your future, about your children’s future, about the future of humanity … you are now being told that we collectively averted a catastrophe of biblical proportions.
So don’t worry about it.
Worry about other things, but don’t worry about the Cycles Cross. Because it came and it went.
But it left vestiges of itself behind. And that is what concerns us now.
A mark, a trace, visible evidence of something that is no longer present or in existence.
The powerful and the not so powerful would exploit these vestiges, were it not for the concerted efforts of a select few.
Where to begin? I pray the angel standing over my shoulder will whisper in my ear the correct and proper phrases to make for the greater understanding.
I am only attempting to explain a small but important part of … not the greatest story ever told, but certainly one of the greatest.
The story of humankind, God’s creatures on our beautiful blue planet, being visited by God’s other creatures.
God’s other children. I have been told, in a dream, “We’re all about the children.”
And I believe it.
Now this next part requires the suspension of disbelief, but bear with me for a little while.
Time is required here on our planet, in this dimension. But is by no means universal. And we have been visited by our future selves.
From wherever or whenever these vistors came … they came. And they come.
As our species evolved, we acquired the technological means to disable their craft. And we came into possession of, not only their ships, but of the ship’s inhabitants themselves.
A few survived, for a little while.
And Dr. Burisch became acquainted with, and then counted as a friend, a certain visitor from our future.
It is not my intention to repeat that story, even though I continue to learn new, amazing facets of that tale.
This is my intention.
Time travel is a reality. It is here. It came from our future.
A test of wills ensued to determine who and how and when this knowledge was to be disseminated.
Gordon Novel came into possession, I don’t know how, of … you know, I honestly don’t know what.
But Dan and Marcia and Eagles Disobey and, I think, Majestic, saw to it that Mr. Novel was disinherited of said knowledge.
And here the story continues …

The Truth According to Mongrel Dawg

(I’ll start with the “truth” and then do some backtracking.  Unless otherwise indicated, the following words can be found at the-goldenthread.proboards.com, which belongs to Dan and Marcia, husband and wife.  I’ve done some editing, but only for clarity’s sake.)

THE TRUTH: (edited)
Here’s the truth! Dr. Dan, when he was speaking with Mr. Novel, suggested a working offer to Dr. Marci AFTER Novel approached the Eagles with an offer of a contract.
Eagles was going to offer the ability to complete ARGGO in record time, then D said he would help Novel in completing his propulsion system from plans he’s got buried in his head from the S4 days! (Dan’s leverage: something to help the environment, first!)
Novel wouldn’t hear of it. He wanted to build another version of ARGGO, almost a match to the Looking Glass and Stargates, to CONTROL TIME.
Dan would hear none of that, because it would be dangerous to everyone.
So, ARGGO is underway independently. It may take longer, but that’s the way it goes!

Gordon Novel’s “Public Masturbation” (or Stan Does Have a Way with Words) 

THEY HAVE THE PLANS YOU DO NOT POSSESS

To: xxxx@yahoo.com

Gordon, I am going to explain something to you, you may not like it, and I am too old to care, and know from the surveillance video that you are probably too old for me to be concerned about.

Dan will not be employed by your company. Eagles Disobey is contracted for services. Contracts go two ways: performance = contractual obligation.

Dan is exclusively contracted to Eagles Disobey, Inc.

The fears of your cohorts are not the problem of Eagles Disobey, and the technologies which Dan has had experience with, will be built with or without your company permission, the acquiescence of its individuals or power structures behind them, or funds.

It was only a matter of whether your company had wished to benefit from his experience.

Industry is presently contracting Eagles Disobey, Inc. and none of them have come to you or your company, or its cohorts or measuring tools, and asked any kind of permission.

Dan will not be measured by you, nor your cohorts, as you do not possess the tools to do it.

He will not be “run up” any of your flagpoles or the flagpoles of your cohorts, because he is not going to be submitted to you as would a schoolboy to a headmaster.

It’s much more the other way around, but you seem oblivious to that reality.

A few days ago, you took exception at anyone, especially Dan and Marci, walking away from you in a public place because you made a fool of yourself with your unrestrained commentary in front of a lady.

It was no joke, no one was laughing, at least not with you.

You followed their departure with a letter claiming that an offer for 6 figures was already being made, and that Dan turned down money and power.

Your company missed the greatest opportunity it could have had because its representative didn’t or couldn’t practice minimal social skills.

Here is a wake up for you, Gordon: your money and power pales to the power structure he already has behind him.

Someone on your list of giants doesn’t believe that? No one on this side of the aisle cares. How dare he and she walk away from such a self-made “renegade” such a paragon of danger? They saw none.

They don’t come when called, as they have the independence of thought enabling them the humanity to disobey when their ethics and morals dictate a course of right from wrong, gentlemanly behavior from street trash talk.

Your company has been informed how to contact Dr. McDowell’s company because you sought them out, not the other way around.

They have the plans you do not possess, and the marketing of those plans is underway with other companies.

Those companies have shown the capability to offer business proposals consistent with the information I provided to you from Dr. McDowell’s company information.

The only things which we can conclude from your lofty letter is that you

1) are inconsistent with your story of what was going to be offered,

2) your company is not capable to compete with the companies who have already offered such proposals,

3) you selectively forget who was seeking who out when you wish to provide more stand up comedy for a larger list, and

4) you don’t like being told “no” especially by other’s who possess the ability to refuse to march in lock step. They can disobey.

Gordon, this is it. If your company ever rises to the competition, you have the contact address, but I will not engage any further with you, with your public masturbation, without billing you.

I will not return further letters from you, as I am even more disinterested in your comedy act than is Dan or Marci.

Stan or whoever you are:

We don’t buy pigs in a poke. We want to know what it is Dan is proposing or offering to sell having to do with TIME or xxxx.

When that is defined in business like terms and demeanor we can make an offer for his services.

If he has cut and bend rig plans please define what they are so we may evaluate our investment.

Since your associates took surprising umbrage at my jocular attempt to break the ice walls they were projecting, perhaps it would be better for us to substitute one of our other xxxx TEAM members Dan is more familiar and or friendly with to negotiate with THEM.

Those individuals are, 1) xxxx, 2) xxxx, 3) xxxx, 4) xxxx, 5) xxxx. Have Dan choose on of them and we will have him contact them.

Stan or whoever, I am not seeking conflict as is indicated in this e-mail I am reluctantly responding to, but I clearly know how to deal with such when confronted by it.

Minimal social skills consist of humor and the ice couple have none, so let’s end this as this is a cone head clash and no masturbating insults intended.

We await the return of rationality and ego control by the ice twins.

I wish to avoid the unnecessary, derogatory, and in validating back and forth conflict which now seems to be your objective from Jump Street whoever you are.

Respectfully,

Now…

As you for, the Aviary: do you really exist in any domain other than little emails anymore, or by way of “corporate wh/ores” (their words from above ) hocking up your alleged famous history?

As correctly detailed in the OMtv article, in 1953 the task was taken away, by order of the (then) Majestic 12, taken away from being AFOSI and CIA directed!

It was given to the side of Silent Operations, within the NSA “side” (if you will) WHO COULD HANDLE THE JOB, WHO COULD GET IT UP WHEN IT WAS REQUIRED!

(Just look at their flying ram if you think they can get anything up. )

There the job remained, on the NSA side where I was trained, and where it remains today.

Ufology wants a radio show and conferences, and you want what you lost? You have shown, via Eagles Disobey, that you couldn’t find your way out of a restroom stall by yourselves.

Just look at Doty, Collins, and Novel! They make the three stooges look like Nobel Laureates! Perfect for ufology!
You should be told, probably by this method as you have so few left: I have taken to limiting all your contacts, from all such allied older ops, to almost nothing now.

If you attempt to break by any barriers, you will be provided with the same disinfo you have been shoving at the public for all these years!

You will learn nothing. Those are my orders. I cut it off, cut you off, just as quickly as I cut the real whistleblowers off to PC. Yes, I know, it hurts as the bubble begins to contract, but you’ll get used to it!

There are plenty of people you can still lie to in ufology! “And how in the F could they be in control of what, and from where, we didn’t hear…?”

We know you didn’t know about us. That was our first clue you were out of touch, marginalized, not productive. It was at that moment we knew you would not see us coming! Watch out for trains!

Enjoy what’s left while it lasts, as my coming Directive Document will remove the rest.

You may be able to suck some from the public through the ufo-show, but your days of sucking funds from the American People as a whole, has ended. Get used to it: Access Denied!

DISCLOSURE:

That’s we why have been telling the public that it won’t fly for the past 2 years. Steven, my bud loved saying, “I ain’t never seen a ram fly!” for a reason.

It was a DUMBO JOKE, “We ain’t never seen an elephant fly!”

Dan spoke with some people when he heard before the low level hearing and told them ahead of time what they were going to hear.

They heard EXACTLY what Dan said, and 1 of them had the plans from Dan a day before the briefing. It was agreed to let him go with his dog and pony show or he’d just claim some other good people were “evil.”

But, now that he’s had his show, it’s done. How did Dan have the plans?

On a March afternoon, 2007, in a hotel room, Novel and another prominent ufologist (J.M.)  invited D and M for a hearing of the Ram Project. Ohh, awww, ohh! THE RAM THAT CAN’T FLY!

Novel GAVE Dan the plans to the project, because he was too interested in what Marci was doing to pay attention to he was saying!

Dan, on tape we have, said,

“Okay, I can take with with me and do with it, as…”

Gordon said, (looking at Marci), “Ah, yeah.”

Now, there’s real “professional secret agent” behavior for you!  The man claimed he had the PLANS OF THE SAUCERS , but it was more important for him to stare at Marci!

I AM AN EXPERT ON FLIGHT SYSTEMS, PROPULSION, AND DYNAMICS!

(You don’t think they made me head of Sec Transport for nuthin do you? )

Yes, I was raised on a shrimp boat, but we can go to school too!

I can tell everyone, just like I told Dan that night after Gordon handed away the plans: IT WON’T FLY.

The thing that Gordon and the rest of the rammers  should be thinking about right now is that

a year before the hearing they received several pieces of software back from different people (including a man I work for) and

information from that software was ultimately, MINDLESSLY, integrated into Gordon’s final presentation!

Another copy of the material was given to Ron Garner, so he could copy and dispense it to EVERYBODY.

Truth is, we are the only ones with the first set of plans now.

They will be stored where they are safe.

HAVE A MAJIC DAY, GORDO! You can’t swing at what you can’t see.

And those who don’t have the right kinds of eyes to see, aren’t allowed such plans.

It would be unsafe for the public.

Really, somebody ought to at least tell him?  BC

You do like sticking it to the Aviary, don’t you? ;D
Truth is Dan and Marci are PROFESSIONAL AGENTS. They are so good they were able to simultaneously operate around the Majestic and the Illuminati for 18 years, while no one knew what was going on. “The best of the best.” That was written for them!
Dan was waiting to walk out of that meeting with the plans, so they could be evaluated. The copying, switching, making little rams head with alien eyes was the easy part. He needed to have the plans handed to him, and have a tape of Gordon saying that he could do whatever he wanted to with them, AND HE DID IT! ;D That made what followed, disbursement, completely legal. During that meeting Gordon was all over Dan trying to get a meeting with the J1 at the time, at his office, and Dan was not buying the conjob.
The problem with the logic went thus ;D :
– Gordon said he wanted a meeting inside the DNI’s office.
– Dan said, “no.” ;D
– Gordon began spouting how his friend (R.P.) was already working as an assistant to the man in the DNI’s office he wants to meet. (This was a lie that D and M already knew, and knew they would be faced with, because we observed Gordon and another discussing it before the meeting! ;D)
– Then Dan asked, “Why do you need me for a meeting, then?” ;D
duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
After the meeting was done, even after Dan said to him what he did, our hallway surveillance picked up Gordon saying to Dan as he was walking away, “Get me that meeting with xxxxxxxxxxxx if you can! It’s vital!”
;D
The truth of all this is that Gordon jumps from one thing to the next, just like the rest of the business of ufology. It’s not real.
Where things are real, (I have it on GOOD AUTHORITY to say) it has been determined that Ufology and their perverted minions shall not go. They would destroy the world if offered a chance. They are just that lustful for power.
GORDON DESTROYED HIS OWN PROJECT.

‘I am not in an American courtroom’ sir…  …but NOPE, I do not deny your allegations!

There was an attempted release of classified data, within the content of something they had, and that classified data is now where it can be protected.

Marcia and I were tasked with the completion of a set of clandestine orders, and we fulfilled those orders, as their fulfillment acted to protect the population.

When it was learned that Gordon went to the PRC’s government, in an attempt to sell the material, MAJESTIC stepped in…and then we stepped out…with the material.

If our “switchemz changemz”  professionals did their job right, and we believe they did, none of those flying ram believing loonies will ever be able to sort it out.

That’s how this dangerous game is played: there is a winner and a loser.

We won. D

I have a question and I have signed off on the content regulations provided on the 28th. by Andrew.

Do you honestly want us to believe that M’s idea to have D dissect the queen-94-109a document isn’t linked to the utter destruction of the Aviary?

Kit, an Aviary member, stated he had some East Coast unnamed Medical School Head who claimed “word salad.”

Collins, another member, backed it and derided the leaking of the document that D and Mostow wrote, George Knapp, another member, attacked D for what Kit said.

Now, D is going to dissect it and make them look like fools! I bet that stuff is going in the publication too! Your use of time is absolutely genius!

You think we don’t know what’s coming down? ha! Jeff

(I could go on, but I think you get the gist.  Gordon Novel was in possession of knowledge, which had something to do with anti-gravity and time travel, i.e., technology either given to us by the visitors or reverse-engineered from fallen craft.  The good guys with the white hats deemed this intolerable and suicidal, and stole from Novel what wasn’t his to begin with.  How Novel came to be in possession in the first place escapes me.)

RAM = Replication Alien Machine.

RAM/ARV Technologies Project = to build a Alien Reproduction Vehicle.

Dear Dr. Pandolfi:

RAM GRAVIONICS Group is seriously entertaining the prospect of suing for billions in Federal Court the MJ-12 apparat and or Navy Space Command

for tortuous interference in what we collectively perceived for the last 7 years

since submitting the still publically secret “SCS REPORT” was the legal nature of our long business relationship and

their other perfidious criminal acts

to prevent the RAM GRAVIONICS developmental program and long 63 year over due UFO disclosure process.

We can prove MJ-12 exists with witnesses and documents as well as the potentially Utopian causing ARV anti-gravity and free energy condition for our world.

Proving our long close relationship with your “company” is easy.

Proving what we have been trying to do with you and others that this huge criminal conspiracy is blocking that we can and will still do is much easier.

You have not done anything I know of substantive et.al. to recover

my RAM data loaded computer,

my irreplaceable via Adm. McConnell personal property and

lots of other invaluable National Security RAM documented data

very clearly stolen in early December by fraud at Desert Self Storage,

my cars seizure with bogus Majic hack created parking tickets, and

lots of other personal property stolen by DHS PB CI operatives

in TEN unacted up on filed criminal complaints and

proving this all has happened is falling off a log.

Moreover, you haven’t followed through a scintilla on preparing Spielberg’s invitation to meet with you after a great expenditure in time, effort and money to prepare

our PB-EO film production Disclosure presentation plan to him and a retinue of famous film makers

we are now actively seeking to join

an unfixable and politically undefeatable alliance to make this film of the greatest story never told.

We would not have done this seminal production work preparation without your encouragement and support in doing so for the past few years.

The Murad, Boardman and Sarfatti attacks on RAM and myself in the last 120 days also could have been avoided had you so desired.

I made 3 trips to D.C. in 09 to meet with you in pursuit of objectives you encouraged that were objectives which were not attained at some serious costs and losses to RAM.

Murad is insidious, Boardman is deceitful and the last trip you arranged and then studiously avoided mediating was decidedly dangerous to me IMHO.

The Coast to Coast and Pippin TV shows I would normally be briefing you on beforehand are now going to be presented

in accord with our immediate legal plans instead of our appreciations of normal RAM based National Security considerations.

Spielberg will reportedly be back in a week or so from his shoot in Budapest.

We have the corporate jet use agreement to take him, George Lucas, Roland Emmerich, Ron Howard, Coppola, the Weinstein brothers, and James Cameron, et.al.

to meet with you, John Podesta and or Potus Chief of Staff Raam E manuel about the making of this film.

To restore our relationship to what it was

before Murad sold the now easily provable bogus Searl Russian rig scheme to Morgan,

we require our property be returned and the now overdue letter tendered to Steven Spielberg.

I now have the research science documentation by Astronautics Laboratory (AFSC) Air Force Space Technology Center

to prove what Paul is doing is fraudulent with Searl/Godin Roschin and that he knew it long beforehand.

Depending on the tenor of our next conversation and proof of prompt action taken on recovering my property

that Majic’s agents engineered, the theft of –

our long relationship is about to enter uncharted and obviously very controversial waters,

We CURRENTLY have NO INTENTION whatsoever in suing either you or the “company”.

Suing Murad, Boardman, Sarfatti, Desert Self Storage, Shaheen, DHS city and PD and MJ-12 as witting or unwitting co-conspirators acting

in combination in one hell of a lot of illegal criminal acts

is now a very likely foregone conclusion.

Rumsfeld’s statement about the missing two trillion at DOD can become a very big issue if the fix in the national media comes unglued on C to C.

I don’t expend a lot of money and obviously dangerous very hard work over five long years to watch it go down the drain over B.S., insanity and treachery and not strike back when I am ready.

I am nearing ready and will be seeing Ramsey and the rest of the RAM legal TEAM shortly to prepare our corporate Federal Court action.

I have found a benefactor to help support what could be very expensive and publicity wise more than extremely unpleasant litigation for all these defendants.

I recommend your first call to the thieves at Desert Self Storage be on the top of your agenda.

They are still refusing to disclose what they did with my property they stole including

the RAM/CIA related materials,

files and engineering blue prints

on the Nation’s No. 1 National Security secret.

These facts and what they portend for history should make for great interview information for the public,

some co-conspiring law enforcement and city officials in DHS and L.A. and other news medias on Coast to Coast Sunday Night.

See you in the funny papers.

(I don’t know enough to know how to respond, except to wonder if this was written BEFORE or AFTER Novel learned he’d been had.)

In the course of my research, I chanced upon the following which referred to many of the same names which kept popping up. I just don’t know enough to discern the truth of it or lack thereof.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_aviary08.htm

Alexander and C. B. Jones are members of the AVIARY, a group of intelligence and Department of Defense officers and scientists with a brief to discredit any serious research in the UFO field. Each member of the Aviary bears a bird’s name. Jones is FALCON; John Alexander is PENGUIN.


One of their agents, a UFO researcher known as William Moore, who was introduced to John Alexander at a party in 1987 by Scott Jones, confessed in front of an audience at a conference held by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) on July 1, 1989 in Las Vegas, how he was promised inside information by the senior members of the AVIARY in return for his obedience and service to them. He participated in the propagation and dissemination of disinformation fed to him by various members of the AVIARY.

He also confessed how he was instructed to target one particular individual, an electronics expert, Dr Paul Bennewitz, who had accumulated some UFO film footage and electronic signals which were taking place in 1980 over the Manzano Weapons Storage areas at Kirkland Air Force Base, New Mexico.

As a result of Moore’s involvement, coupled with some surreptitious entries and psychological techniques, Bennewitz ended up in a psychiatric hospital.

Just before the publication of my first paper unmasking two members of the AVIARY, I was visited by two of their members (MORNING DOVE and HAWK) who had traveled to the UK with a message from the senior ranks advising me not to go ahead with my expose. I rejected the proposal.

Immediately after the publication of that paper, and with the full knowledge that myself and a handful of colleagues knew the true identities of their members, John B. Alexander confessed that he was indeed a member of the AVIARY, nicknamed PENGUIN. The accuracy of our information was further confirmed to me by yet another member of the AVIARY–Ron Pandolphi, PELICAN.

Pandolphi is a PhD in physics and works at the Rocket and Missile section of the Office of the Deputy Director of Science and Technology, CIA.

In his book, Out There, the New York Times journalist Howard Blum refers to “a UFO Working Group” within the Defense Intelligence Agency. Despite DIA’s repeated denials, the existence of this working group has been confirmed to me by more than one member of the group itself, including an independent source in the Office of Naval Intelligence. The majority of the group’s members are senior members of the AVIARY:

  • Dr Christopher Green (BLUEJAY) from the CIA
  • Harold Puthoff (OWL), ex-NSA
  • Dr Jack Verona (RAVEN), DoD, one of the initiators of the DlA’s Sleeping Beauty project which aimed to achieve battlefield superiority using mind-altering electromagnetic weaponry
  • John Alexander (PENGUIN)
  • Ron Pandolphi (PELICAN)

The mysterious “Col. Harold E. Phillips” who appears in Blum’s Out There, is none other than John B. Alexander.

John Alexander’s position as the Program Manager for Contingency Missions of Conventional Defense Technology, Los Alamos National Laboratories, enabled him to exploit the Department of Defense’s Project Reliance “which encourages a search for all possible sources of existing and incipient technologies before developing new technology in-house” to tap into a wide range of exotic topics, sometimes using defense contractors, e.g., McDonnell Douglas Aerospace. I have several reports, some of which were compiled before his departure to the Los Alamos National Laboratories when he was with Army Intelligence, which show Alexander’s keen interest in any and every exotic subject–UFOs, ESP, psychotronics, anti-gravity devices, near-death experiments, psychology warfare and non-lethal weaponry.

John Alexander utilizes the bank of information he has accumulated to try to develop psychotronic, psychological and mind weaponry. He began thinking about non-lethal weapons a decade ago in his paper, “The New Mental Battlefield”. He seems to want to become a ’Master’.

If they ever succeed in this ambition, the rest of us ordinary mortals had better watch out.

So, here we are. Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? It’s not so easy to discern. Do they even know themselves?I have an angel standing over me. I have lots of angels. They seem to want this information to be more widely known.
 
But why? Why are they here? What do they want from us?

Is it as simple as just wanting to be acknowledged?

Just wanting to move forward? Tired of the deceit? Weary of waiting?

I have tried to keep my distance and my objectivity.

I believe in Dan. I believe he is honest in his words to us. But many words are never uttered by him.

Don’t count on disclosure from Dan and Marcia for as long as they are seated where they are seated.

Maybe after.

I’m not convinced Dan favors disclosure. And if he’s privy to knowledge of MILABs, he certainly doesn’t talk about it. He has fears of his own to contend with.

 

And if you want to know what motivates me, read this:

    MICHELLE OBAMA, campaign rally, Milwaukee, Feb. 18, 2008

    +++

    Five years ago this statement was really upsetting to me. Doesn’t upset me now.

    I wonder if she is proud still. I’m not.

    Too many willing to defend too many secrets.

    Lies always lead to more lies.

    I hope, I pray for an America that is good, again.

    Then she will be great, again.

    I’m not naive, I know some nation-states are hell on earth.

    That is no excuse for those in power to abandon those they swore to defend.

    It feels terrible not to be proud of one’s native land.

    Who Killed The Syrian Peace Talks?

    http://www.countercurrents.org/cooke130613.htm

    Ultimately, the Syrian rebels would have already been defeated — and thousands of lives spared — if they had not been receiving support from the U.S. and other countries.

    The U.S.-backed rebels have said that a pre-condition for peace is “Assad must go;” but this demand does not coincide with the reality on the ground:

    the rebels are in no position to demand this, and the U.S. is using this unrealistic demand to artificially lengthen an already-bloody war.

    Obama can either use his immense influence to end this bloody conflict now by withdrawing support to the rebels,

    or he can extend the conflict and further tear to shreds the social fabric of the Middle East,

    while risking a multi-nation war that history will denounce as an easily preventable holocaust.

    Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell indicated during a House Intelligence hearing in 2007 that the NSA’s surveillance process involves “billions” of bulk communications being intercepted, analyzed, and incorporated into a database.

    They can be accessed by an analyst who’s part of the NSA’s “workforce of thousands of people” who are “trained” annually in minimization procedures, he said.

    (McConnell, who had previously worked as the director of the NSA, is now vice chairman at Booz Allen Hamilton, Snowden’s former employer.)

    If it were “a U.S. person inside the United States, now that would stimulate the system to get a warrant,” McConnell told the committee.

    “And that is how the process would work. Now, if you have foreign intelligence data, you publish it [inside the federal government].

    Because it has foreign intelligence value.”

    McConnell said during a separate congressional appearance around the same time that he believed the president had the constitutional authority, no matter what the law actually says, to order domestic spying without warrants.

    ANY QUOTES USED MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO MURNAGHAN, SKY NEWS

    DERMOT MURNAGHAN: Well the Syrian conflict will be high on the agenda at this week’s G8 meeting. David Cameron will try to convince world leaders to do more to help the Syrian opposition. We’re already providing so-called ‘non-lethal assistance’ but should Britain step it up and actually arm the rebels? Let’s say a very good morning to Paddy Ashdown. Paddy, a very blunt question I suppose, should we get more deeply involved in Syria?

    PADDY ASHDOWN: Good morning Dermot. If we do exceedingly carefully – and I don’t know what the Americans have planned, it may be that they are talking about some kind of humanitarian protection zone, some kind of corridor, anything humanitarian carries great risks because humanitarian areas become refuges which the guerrillas, the opposition, the rebels, can use for military purposes but that I think is certainly worth considering. Supplying arms? No, and I’ll give you four clear reasons for that. First of all, they are not short of arms, they have had 3,000 tons of arms – by the way most of them have come from the underground factories in Bosnia that I remember from when I was there and were illegally smuggled by the CIA, the Saudi Arabians and the Qataris – 3000 tons, that’s a lot of small arms. Secondly, because I don’t think the rebels are fit and proper groups to be receiving arms. They are not together, we don’t know who they are, we don’t know how weapons pass from one group to another. Thirdly, because I have never known a case in history where providing arms has produced peace, it is usually exactly the opposite and lastly and crucially, and this is the point I have trying to make with others for about a year now, this is not about Syria. We think Syria is the issue, it’s not, it’s the front line of a much, much wider struggle and that struggle by the way is funded by the same Saudi businessmen who funded Osama Bin Laden when we armed him to oppose the Russians, funded by the Qataris, to let the Wahhabis and the Salafis take over the Sunni community as a preparation to a wider war against the Shia, a regional conflict. The issue now is not tackling the great Satan of the West, it is preparing for a war against the great heretic in Teheran and the difficulty in this is this, that we are now being inadvertently and stupidly in my view, instrumentalised into supporting the Sunnis on the one hand whereas the Russians, the same thing is happening in their own republics like Dagestan and Chechnya, are being instrumentalised into supporting the Shia. I don’t believe it is sensible for us to be contributing to that process. If you want to take action, diplomatic action, which is what we should be taking and America should be taking, is to stop the Saudis arming what is basically an extremist movement in Syria and beginning to see if we can close down this wider conflict which is affecting Syria, which is affecting the Russian Muslims, which is affecting Lebanon, which is affecting Egypt, which is affecting Libya, which is affecting Tunisia and is the same conflict in Mali. That’s the big danger, not Syria.

    DM: But could the threat of providing arms and more aid to the rebels, could that threat be part of the diplomacy in trying to force Assad to negotiate?

    PADDY ASHDOWN: It could but I think it’s extremely contentious. One of the lessons I learnt very clearly from diplomacy in the Bosnian conflict is that you never make a threat you are not going to fulfil. If it is the case that these talks don’t come to a successful conclusion, and I think that is nine-tenths likely, you have got to make the effort, it is important that we do but nine-tenths likely, then you have to see if you are going to apply your threat and the moment that you don’t, no other threat that you ever make will ever be believed again so I think it is a very, very short term policy that. Look, anything we can do to help the rebels here short of arming them, which I think will deepen the consequence, I think we should do but arming them, getting more militarily involved in this conflict, I think I have to say at this point, until we see something different, is an act of very considerable folly in my view which could lead to exactly the opposite. Dermot, the law of unintended consequences in the Middle East, in Western policy toward the Middle East, is the law that always comes back to haunt us. We armed Osama Bin Laden because he was the enemy of our enemy and then we discovered he was our most potent enemy at the end, using our arms. We invaded Iraq to solve the problem of Saddam Hussein, all we’ve done is move the borders of Iran 400 miles to the west and I think we should just be aware that … I feel desperately for these poor innocent people but when intervention is likely to cause a consequence which makes matters worse, even if your heart is bleeding, you still shouldn’t do it.

    DM: Well if the Prime Minister decides to do it, what’s your view on Parliamentary oversight? Should the issues be debated? He says it will be but it is still unclear then as to whether there would be a binding vote upon it.

    PADDY ASHDOWN: Well look, governments take the responsibility of going to war, Dermot, nobody else does. They are responsible to Parliament and it is right that they should take these debates to Parliament. Tony Blair was the first to start it in the Iraq War and he was correct to do so, the Prime Minister has done it in Libya, he has made a clear commitment here he will do it again. He should be listening to Parliament but ultimately the government takes the decisions, not Parliament, and the government is then responsible to Parliament. I cannot imagine a circumstance however – that is a technical parliamentary position, I cannot imagine the circumstances in which a British Prime Minster, wanting to take his nation to war, even though he might have the absolute right to do so in the face of a Parliamentary opposing vote, I just don’t believe it would happen. So in practical terms although constitutionally Parliament doesn’t have the decision, in practical terms I don’t think a Prime Minister would take his nation to war against the opinion of Parliament.

    DM: Do we also have to take into consideration, Paddy, of course the cuts that are going on? The defence department very much in the cross hairs, so to speak. If we want to have further international commitments don’t we have to have the resources necessary to carry them out?

    PADDY ASHDOWN: I really don’t think this is … Look, army general argues some more resources for the army – that’s not entirely new, Dermot. Defence Secretary uses international crisis to stoke up the arguments for more money for his department – hardly new. This is pretty normal stuff in these circumstances. Two points to make, one is I don’t believe there is a case that will be at all foreseeable that we would actually be using our troops or our armed forces, with the possible exception of a no fly zone, in Syria and I think a no fly zone would be very difficult as well, remember Russia is deeply engaged on the other side. The second point I think is this, no one is arguing – or at least I hope they’re not, not the Defence Secretary and not army generals either – that when the rest of our budgets are being cut, our schools, our hospitals, our welfare, our education, the army can escape that. The real danger of this, the mistake is not made in the fact that the army has to participate in the cuts, the real danger was made, in my view this government’s biggest mistake, was the disaster of the strategic defence review which arrived straight after the last election and that’s left us with an armed services which all right is operating at a lower level of financial resource, but is terribly unbalanced. So we have an aircraft carrier but no aircraft to fly off it, we have too many horses and not enough tanks, it is the unbalanced nature of our armed forces today, far more than the cuts, which leads me to doubt whether or not we have an armed forces fit for purpose in the modern age.

    DM: Okay, Paddy Ashdown, thank you very much indeed.

    Excerpt

    Capitalists and corporatists with their fraudulent calls for unregulated “free markets”,

    politicians who justify the atrocity of new technologies of total surveillance,

    endless war and murder-by-drone as necessary, and

    other members of the military-industrial establishment who see

    geoengineering, fracking, exploitation of the arctic and the continued war on nature as signs of ‘progress’,

    are among the apologists and cheerleaders for the scientism absolutists,

    and their collective power to doom our civilization to

    simplistic and reality-defying magical thinking

    needs to be fiercely challenged.

    Ban GMOs Now

    Health & Environmental Hazards

    http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Ban_GMOs_Now.php#executivesummary

    Conclusion

    The serious harm to health and the ecological and agronomical impacts of glyphosate and glyphosate tolerant crops are the most thoroughly researched, and for which there is little remaining doubt.

    The same kind of evidence has now emerged for Bt crops and Bt toxins.

    Evidence that genetic modification per se is harmful is also convincing, and can be attributed to

    the uncontrollable process of genetic modification itself as well as

    the dangers from the horizontal transfer of the GM constructs, which can

    spread antibiotic resistance,

    create new pathogens and

    trigger ‘insertion carcinogenesis’, as well as

    taking over the body’s natural nucleic acid intercom to do harm.

    There is a compelling case for banning all environmental releases of GMOs now, and with that the glyphosate herbicides.

    Action can be taken locally in communities, villages, towns, municipalities, regions, as well as nationally and globally.

    It must be done now; for time is running out.

    We need to shift comprehensively to non-GM sustainable ecological farming in order to feed ourselves under climate change.

    We the people need to reclaim our food and seed sovereignty from the corporate empire before they destroy our food and farming irreversibly.
