[interim report] higham status report, late march

Green and pleasant land?

I don’t think anyone’s going to agree with all of this personal statement and some are going to be mightily offended.

Let me say, up front, here and now, ‘Pardon, Mesdames et Messieurs.’

This now could have been the worst time of my life, returning to a homeland which is in a shambles and finding no haven here, amongst a disillusioned and worried people, about to experience, in 2009-2012, a time most of them have never before experienced. In fact it’s been the most productive period in a long while and it would be nice if we could have a 25 hour day – that extra hour would come in handy. I thank my mate for making much of this possible although he’s probably wondering what he’s unleashed.

Beslan - caring and sharing

Moving on.

Don’t know about you but when women come into my life, any creativity, research or personal projects are put on hold for the nonce until she decides I’m impossible and moves on. In Russia, the women were fabulous but soaked up most of the available waking time and this was the main bone of contention between the love of my life and your humble blogger – that I wasn’t devoting enough attention to her needs.

Look, I don’t mind devoting well over half my sentient life to her if she loves me and it’s for a noble purpose like helping her realize her personal potential, helping her believe in herself; in my book, you should always get inside your woman’s head, erode her misconceptions about her inability and inner beauty and quietly support her every step of the way but she also has to support your upward journey and that’s the sticking point, isn’t it?

Time for some slaying

That was basically my working life in Russia with male and female alike and the greatest buzz was seeing him or her getting that job, landing that contract or making that speech. That, to me, is fulfilment plus and it drives your own pursuit of a higher state, in the time you’ve reserved for yourself.

But if devoting time, energy and one’s soul to a woman only results in a life still devoted to shopping, shoes, cosmetics, clubbing, sex, sun worshipping, home furnishings, money-wastage or other vacuous pursuits, then count me out. There are meatheads around who can fill that supporting role. Don’t get me wrong, I loved shopping with my lady and helping get her coordinated; dancing was also fine occasionally because it resulted in a better night in bed and I can discuss lipsticks and fragrances with any girl … but surely not as the objects of one’s life.

Magdalena - am I worthy of you?

Surely the object of your life should be improvement of the non-materialistic state of either your situation or that of the world about you and having a bit of fun along the way?

Perhaps I’m wrong in this.

Into this steps Sonus, with his bleak exposé of where we truly are headed. I’m going to run a personal critique of his articles sometime next week but suffice to say that those six essays are a tour de force … although he refuses to take the next step.


As he said himself, in Part 6:


An evil presence, alien to all our perceived sense of “rightness” has its hands on our throat. We are all guilty of being asleep at the wheel …

One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.

He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?

The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’

False messiah

Sonus should have added:

‘Therefore evil will win because it is the easier path, dead easy in fact. It’s easier to drop back into, it’s more attractive in its immediate benefits but it’s ultimately self-destructive for the psyche.’

He would say we all need to understand and fight back against this perniciousness – this is what the articles were partly meant to achieve.

What he himself would well know is that the positive path to recovery has forever been cynically exploited by the enemy. Roosevelt’s ‘all we need fear is fear itself’ and ‘happy days are here again’, reprised by Reagan later, was music to an abused population’s ears.

Not many wish to read the key message from this blog or to wade through Sonus because we deal with difficult concepts such as the snuffing out of real hope. Research Roosevelt, dig deeper than the Wiki bio and you discover a man who called in gold in response to a troubled time of his own backers’ choosing and set in concrete the fiat system. You discover a man who was anything but the godsend most Americans still believe him to have been. Ditto Obama although there are people who at least see through him.

Beloved landscape

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, a messiah in a materialistic mould or truth in clipped off sentences such as, ‘Yes we can.’

Yes we can what?

Yes we can stand by and install our destroyer in office in a landslide and then maintain him there, mesmerized by the Pied Piper spell of charisma and the early charm of wife Cherie or Michelle?

Narrow is the path and rocky is the way to genuine truth and good, rising ever upwards, forever branching off into other paths which lead back down to the super-highway to Gehenna, which the majority of mankind is hell bent on, as Chris Rea warned the world, led by this Pied Piper who mesmerizes them into believing it is actually the upwards path towards truth and enlightenment.

Go to a gym and watch a newbie press 30kg of iron, avoiding those last excruciating pushes which actually make the difference, then go over to the mirror, flexing his muscles to see if they’ve grown any. Go to America and see people taking pills for fatness and well-being instead of getting off the processed food, getting off the butt, stepping out and exercising.

One of Them

Even look at Christians, the genuine ones I mean, not the armed Crusaders of the bible belt and you’ll find find Pre-tribbers amongst them.

Do you know what these are?

They believe that the True Believers will be taken up before the Tribulation begins, that they won’t need to experience any discomfort, which in fact is a synonym for the real American dream – insulation against the vicissitudes of life.

There’s bad news for them.

Just as JC Himself did, in fact, experience unpleasantries, just as Peter, Paul and a host of devotees also did, so the real Christian is also going to suffer in some way, albeit in a less extreme manner in most cases. The third person in the trinity just makes it all the more possible to bear, that’s all.

Stripped of all its eco-speak and corporate jargon, the battle we face right now is no more nor less than the age old one - the fundamental battle between good and evil.

Where Sonus and I differ is that he sees evil [pardon if I have this wrong] as an internal battle within the self, which it certainly is, even on a daily basis. Whether your personal demons are simply the dark side of your personality or whether they are real demons you unwittingly invited in through your naivety, is the point at issue.

Mary and Child

Poirot said to Jacqueline, a woman co-planning a murder, in Death on the Nile:

‘Don’t open your heart to evil, Mademoiselle because if you do, it will surely come and make its home in there.’

The corollary being, of course, that it will be impossible thence to remove it.

However, to have this inside you still does not preclude the fact that there may also be an independent, sentient presence behind it all, a force whose essential shape I neither know nor wish to know but it’s possible to see its fruits. One of its names is i-h-a- and it is legion. To the adepts, the 32nd degrees and the like, it’s as real as the keyboard in front of you now.

Sonus accepts the presence of an outside force at work, trying to disable the economic basis of society rather than just the chance cyclical appearance of downturns as part of the economist’s model and he’s correct.

It’s simple and yet seemingly impossible to go one step further and examine George Bush Snr’s ‘1000 points of light’ to see what arcane mysteries he is actually referring to and whence the concept is derived.

But this is getting into whacko territory, isn’t it? And economic writers are not of this mindset.

Wonder what he makes of the state of affairs?

What if I allege that evil does exist outside of the self, an independent entity which organizes things and appears from time to time, e.g. in Kashmir, in Nairobi, in many places, also residing in the UN building. Mick Jagger was able to grasp the concept in 1969.

This is the first major obstacle which anyone who wishes to know the answer to the question, ‘Why?’ must overcome. If you don’t actually know the full horror of what you’re up against, you have no chance of coming to terms with it.

Read Ephesians 6:12 again.

This sentient presence can be seen in the concepts of duality and the inversion of the natural order – black becoming white and white becoming black. And the white is not white at all but a kaleidoscope of colours, each of which suits its book at the time. Tolkien alluded to this in the colours of Saruman’s cloak and in his honeyed voice of plausibility.

It perverts symbols.

What people know as the swastika is a symbol of good, historically; the star of David is a symbol of good, the pentagram is a symbol of good. It’s just that the enemy has prostituted these symbols.

It’s prostitutes sexuality. If the penis is designed for the vagina, it now goes in the anus.

It prostitutes worship. If the proper recipient of devotion should be your maker, it becomes money instead. If the proper recipient of your love should be your family, it becomes your mistress instead.

It prostitutes our children. Look at the Common Purpose aim with children, the new state mentoring which actually exists, even now, the decades of nobbling of our education system. Just look at what that system is producing today! I’m getting angry just thinking of what socialist teachers who should never have been allowed within light years of children are teaching them.

It’s relativistic.

We, the people

It’s all part of the process of white-anting the society and stripping away its ability to cope, whilst genuinely believing it is ushering in an era of tolerance and love. Look around at the tolerance and love it’s produced in our community at this very moment.

Here is Gordo’s dream in action but of course, he blames outside influences, the failure of a ‘free market economy’ which never existed.

On the other hand, the white caps are still on the waves out there on the sea, the ships are still passing and life in Britain can still be picturesque. The flat’s lovely and warm, the food’s scrumptious and the Mac is still working for now.

Have a lovely Sunday.

We've gotta get off this digital thing: good/evil, right/wrong - it only leads to polarisation, conflict and ownership of the 'truth'.
We've also gotta get rid of this corrupt political system that tethers us to our tv sets where we are delivered the 'truth'.

CherryPie said...

I think good and evil needs to be looked at on a different level, everything is a balance. Think of some of those dictators we think of as evil. How did they appear after they were toppled? What happened to that part of them we thought was evil?

Sonus said...

You have me all wrong, a million miles wrong.

I have explored metaphysical in the past, - (and have a few rare volumes that were banned in certain countries), more than you could know.

It's all circuitous logic that won't stand examination. The parts that do work are based on science, and are amazing, and beg the question, "How could they have known?"


There is no externality, sentience, or whatever, that interacts.

My story was merely a simplistic story for a grandson, to shape his ways, his life.

The warnings, the puns, if you will, were in the "Deep Impact" films.

The failure of the "messiah", relating to the space-craft was a pun with Obamas failure, which because of stupid actions, is now baked in.

The failure of the elder members of society was a pun with the (now mandated, unfortunately,) failure of future western pension levels to sustain viable life, - future rampant inflation is now baked in, - in the UK.

The young ones survive, but they have a mountain to climb to do it, and a lot of rebuilding too. The mountain they have to climb is future taxation levels on a decreasing net disposable income caused by inflation on imported goods not being matched by wage increases. - a vastly reduced standard of living.

Families and relationships, and homes are (will be) shattered.

The explanation was given in a graph and blog from Karl in an earlier part. - that of increasing debt, and interest payments overwhelming the ability of the economy to pay it down. Interest rates are engineered to be low now, but they CANNOT stay low when inflation takes off, and it will.

Jim Rogers is forecasting exchange controls for the US, I would not be surprised to see the same for UK, since we are not in the Euro.

Here is the follow-up to a link used in part 6, relating to shenanigans in currency manipulations.
WOW hoodathunkit!.

GEAB open letter

Sonus said...

When I said

An evil presence, alien to all our perceived sense of “rightness” has its hands on our throat. We are all guilty of being asleep at the wheel

I was referring to the actors behind the curtains who deliberately created this mess, and beyond the economic slant, this was the message, that the whole world has been plunged into a final act, pre planned, pre orchestrated.

A quotation from Prof Carroll Quigley's superb book

Tragedy and Hope
A History of the World in Our Time

"Te powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less
than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. this system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle,
Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations....

"It must not be felt that these heads of the world's chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised
them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called 'international' or 'merchant' bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own
unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world. They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds though bank loans, the discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts; they could dominate governments by their own control over current government loans and the play of the
international exchanges. Almost all of this power was exercised by the personal influence and prestige of men who had demonstrated their ability in the past to bring off successful
financial coupes, to keep their word, to remain cool in a crisis, and to share their winning opportunities with their associates."

Now you may understand why AIG was/is the conduit for tax payer funds to reach GS, and JPM, and other Banks, proxies for the Fed.
Many were/are involved in the gold price suppression, interest rate swaps, etc, etc.

Now you perhaps understand how the economies of South East Asia were collapsed in the 1980/90s.
The members of the CFR and the Trilaterals were extremely active in all these crimes. Millions starved.

The hatred of the US and to some extent the UK is palpable in the G20. We are pariahs, and will pay.

Not immediately noticed, but commencing in a few months.


Sonus said...

And those AIG funds to GS and JPM, and others MAY be ending up in the Caribbean where hedgies for some inexplicable reason are suddenly increasing their holdings of US T-Bills.

Never ends, does it!

sonus said...

This is an extract from the GEAB link, above.

You will note that no mention of the £ is made in the suggested basket, exactly as I predicted earlier in part .

1. The key to solving the crisis lies in creating a new international reserve currency!

The first recommendation is a very simple idea: reform the international monetary system inherited post-wwii and create a new international reserve currency. The US Dollar and economy are no longer capable of supporting the current global economic, financial and monetary order. As long as this strategic problem is not directly addressed and solved, the crisis will grow. Indeed it is at the heart of the crises of derivative financial products, banks, energy prices... and of their consequences in terms of mass unemployment and collapsing living standards. It is therefore of vital importance that this issue should be the main subject of the G20 summit, and that the first steps towards a solution are initiated. In fact, the solution to this problem is well-known, it is about creating an international reserve
currency (which could be called the « Global ») based on a basket of currencies corresponding to the world’s largest economies, i.e. US dollar, Euro, Yen, Yuan, Khaleeji (common currency of oil-producing Gulf states, to be launched in January 2010), Ruble, Real..., managed by a « World Monetary Institute » whose Board will reflect the respective weight of the economies whose currencies comprise the « Global ». You must ask the imf and concerned central banks to prepare this plan for June 2009, with an implementation date of January 1st, 2010. This is the only way for you to regain some control over currently unwinding events, and this is the only way for you to bring about shared global management, based on a shared currency located at the centre of economic and financial activity. According to LEAP/E2020, if this alternative to the currently collapsing system has not been initiated by this summer 2009, proving that there is another solution than the « every man for himself » approach, today’s international system will not survive this summer.

If some of the G20 states think that it is better to maintain the privileges related to the « status quo » as long as possible, they should meditate the fact that, if today they can still significantly influence the future shape of this new global monetary system, once the phase of global geopolitical dislocation has started they will lose any capacity to do so.

That final paragraph is interesting, - an open threat to the US.

This is going to be interesting, but not to our advantage AT ALL.

You will note that no mention is made of Gold, - I did not expect to see gold mentioned in a basically european/EU orientated publication.
The Russians are advocating a part gold backing, as is China, and the Middle East (Khaleeji).

Sonus said...

And then you say :-

Sonus should have added:

‘Therefore evil will win because it is the easier path, dead easy in fact. It’s easier to drop back into, it’s more attractive in its immediate benefits but it’s ultimately self-destructive for the psyche.’

Why should I add that nonsense? It has no relation to the topic being covered.

Your insistence in measuring everything on those terms could cause me to rethink my offer of further articles. There is no possible debate coming from me in those terms. Period.

The drama being played out now is a battle for control of THE WORLD, by the politicians or the Behind-the-Curtain-Finance-Houses. Since we know the politicians are all bought, the battle is theatre for our benefit.

There a good economic ways to solve the problems, but basically that window has now closed, I maintain the delay was/is deliberate.

Now we are left with the bad ways. That too is deliberate.

GEAB push is basically an EU push. The Euro is a purely Fiat structure, and auditors have refused for 13 years to sign off on the EU accounts. Convincing me that EU schemes would be any better than Wall Street/US Treasury/GS/JPM/Federal Reserve schemes in the long run, is just not going to happen. Folks who think they will be better with EU proposals have holes in their head.

The EU is as corrupt as a freshly laid turd.

And that goes for all the other players.

That is fact, and has nothing to do with the metamorphosis of any theocratic concepts.

Sonus said...

And confirmation starts to come from all quarters

James Higham said...

Pisces - elements of truth in that.

Cherie - yes.

Sonus - I stand corrected.

Sonus said...

There WILL be blood in the streets over this. All the US financial blogs are running it. Geithner, ALL GS seniors, ALL JPM seniors, Bernanke, and probably Obama too.

The thing is, they are all Fed proxies and many LBMA members, CFR, TRI..
Mouths are opening, folks are angry over the frauds and criminality.
Where are the states attorneys?

Like I said, corrupt as a freshly laid, - - well, you get the drift
