“Glitch” Responsible For Massive Payments Outage In The…

If you’ve been watching the meltdowns on the internet lately, and specifically with respect to financial clearing, you’ll have noted an increase in the outages of payments systems. Recall that during the “power outage” that was caused by those pesky “metallic balloons” in San Francisco, Los Angeles-San Diego, and New York, was accompanied by payments outages in Ontario, specifically in Canada’s largest grocery chain, Loblaws. Well, on May 1st, during a banking holiday weekend, Lloyds’ and National Westminster (NatWest) banks in the United Kingdom were hit with similar problems, according to this story shared by Ms.B.Z.:

Payday banking meltdown as Lloyds, Halifax, RBS and NatWest customers are hit by online glitch that stops them accessing their accounts – and even makes payments ‘vanish’

Note the problem according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail:

Customers of Lloyds Bank, Halifax, RBS and NatWest were up in arms after an online glitch saw many lose access to their accounts and payments disappear.

The glitch, which affected the banks’ online service, occurred on what is payday for most of the British workforce.

All the banks said the issue had been resolved, with ‘missing’ transfers to reappear in customers’ accounts by the end of today.

Note that what is being described as a “glitch” (which somehow affected Lloyds, NatWest, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and Halifax banks all simultaneously), also was responsible for the complete disappearance of monies in electronic transfers and transactions:

One user told the NatWest Twitter help feed: ‘Your app’s not working …… neither is your online banking. Just transferred money bet [sic] my accounts and it has disappeared!’

Another added: ‘Me too, £650 has not been transferred and has gone missing!!’

As one angry commentator put it in the comments section below the article: “What is a glitch?”

Indeed, the term “glitch” is used when no one has a good explanation, or at least, an explanation they care to share.

So, in the absence of an explanation that is covered by the word “glitch”, permit me to run amok with my high octane speculation of the day, for I cannot help but think that when two of Great Britain’s largest banks get hit with a “glitch” that causes electronic transfer payments to completely disappear, that something more than a “glitch” is involved. As I indicated when I blogged about the strange financial clearing problems in Ontario during the “power outage” that was caused by a “glitch” called “metallic balloons,” it appears that someone, somewhere, is doing not only a lot of reconnoitering of the internet, but that they are also sending messages about the complete lack of integrity and security of digital systems.

In short, these do not strike me as “glitches” at all; they strike me as deliberately contrived events; someone is gathering an extraordinary amount of intelligence on financial transaction systems, their security, and doing exactly the sort of exploratory “strikes” that one would do in order to ascertain how to “hack the internet” and bring it all down in one fell swoop. After all, this time the banks were able to recover the transactions and credit their customers’ accounts. Next time it might not work out so tidily.

See you on the flip side…

Medical Tyranny & Big Government: Judge orders FORCED VACCINATIONS for children in shocking UK court case

Freedom has taken another crushing blow in the UK as a High Court judge ruled that a mother can’t do what she believes is best for her children — but only because her beliefs don’t go along with their preordained narrative of what defines a child’s “best interests.”

The mother in question did not want to vaccinate her children in part, because they are vegans and current vaccine development methods do not align with the family’s personal beliefs (they contain animal blood components and DNA). The mother also cited concerns about toxic ingredients often found in vaccines, such as aluminum salts, as part of why she opposed getting her children vaccinated. According to the mother, her oldest son had already experienced side effects from previous shots such as “cradle cap, a persistent cough and eczema.”

However, this story is not just a case of courts versus a loving mother. The children’s father brought the mother to court over her refusal to vaccinate the kids, and applied for a court order to force vaccination upon them. The father says that he did this out of concern for his sons’ safety, and claims that the mother is “obsessive, overprotective and narrow in her views.”

But who is really being narrow-minded here? In the wake of evidence that vaccines can cause a number of health issues, including neurodevelopmental disorders, is it really so “narrow” to question their safety? One might wonder if refusing to acknowledge “dissenting” information on the topic of vaccines — and at least take it with a grain of salt — is what is truly narrow.

The father went on to say that the mom had a “suspicion of all conventional medicine,” and illustrated this claim by describing how in the past, she had refused to give her sons paracetamol-based medicines. Paracetamol is the British term for what we in the states call “acetaminophen.”  However, these concerns are not unfounded: Acetaminophen has been shown to sometimes cause liver damage, even when consumed in the recommended amounts as instructed by the label. In 2013, it was estimated that some 80,000 people a year are hospitalized due to acetaminophen poisoning and another 500 or so would die from liver complications. So, how is this not a valid concern?

The boys’ mother defended her beliefs in court and stated, “It is not natural to be injected with metal elements and as a vegan, it goes against my beliefs for my children to be injected with something that is grown on animal cells or something that has been tested on animals.”

She also stated, “What I have learned is that yes, vaccines do work some of the time, but there is a definite risk with vaccination. The vaccine manufacturers have cited that vaccines are ‘unavoidably unsafe.’” The UK mom, who has not been named to protect the anonymity of the kids, went on to describe how her boys are very healthy children and that their risk of disease is low because they have strong immune systems that help to protect them against illness.

Sadly, but yet unsurprisingly, the father’s attempts at making the mother sound “paranoid,” prevailed. The High Court Judge Mark Rogers cited the UK’s Children’s Act of 1989, which allows the court to “overrule a parent” for the sake of the child’s “welfare.” Natural Blaze reports that vaccines do not appear in any of the headlines for the legislation, though that made little difference in the outcome.

Rogers noted that the mother was unable to find a doctor to support her views that was willing to appear in front of the courts on her behalf. To do so, naturally, would have been career suicide for any doctor — or at the very least, it would have opened them up to quite a bit of scrutiny. He even went on to say that he was “sorry” that the mother would view his ruling as being “wrong,” and questioned her ability to view the matter “objectively.”

Forced vaccination will never be the right course of action. Vaccines do come with risks, regardless of whether or not mainstream medicine puppets are willing to recognize it — facts are facts. Vaccines are not only made with animal-derived ingredients, but they are often tested on animals. To make matters worse, many vaccines contain toxic adjuvants such as aluminum salts, which are known to cause a wide range of deleterious effects.

This issue will not be going away anytime soon, and as more people wake up to the dangers of vaccines, we will likely begin to see more court-mandated vaccination cases.

U.K. Doctors Granted License to Create 3-Parent GM Babies

Doctors in the U.K. have been given the first-ever license to create “three-parent babies,” with the controversial IVF treatment taking place as early as later this year. [1]

The license was granted by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) to a team who pioneered the mitochondrial pronuclear transfer technique at the University of Newcastle.

The development takes humanity closer to the creation of “designer babies,” but the doctors at the Newcastle Fertility Centre say they only plan to use the technology “to help families affected by these devastating diseases.”

Mary Herbert, a professor of Reproductive Biology at the Centre, says:

“Many years of research have led to the development of pronuclear transfer as a treatment to reduce the risk of mothers transmitting disease to their children. It’s a great testament to the regulatory system here in the U.K. that research innovation can be applied in treatment.” [2]

The IVF treatment involves halting the fertilization process to remove faulty mitochondria that can cause fatal heart problems, liver failure, brain disorders, blindness, and muscular dystrophy. These are known as mitochondrial diseases, and they are incurable conditions that get passed down the maternal line, affecting about one in 6,500 children worldwide.

Source: Daily Mail

It’s known as “three-parent IVF” because the babies are born from genetically modified embryos, and they would have DNA from a mother, a father, and a female donor.

In 2016, Britain’s parliament voted to change the law to allow three-parent IVF if and when it was ready for licensing. However, the HFEA still had to approve each clinic and each patient on an individual basis before the treatment could occur.

Now that the Newcastle Fertility Centre has received a license, the HFEA must approve each applicant for treatment. [2]

Professor Sir Doug Turnbull, who has led the team at Newcastle in developing the new IVF therapy, says:

“This will allow women with mitochondria DNA mutations the opportunity for more reproductive choice. Mitochondria diseases can be devastating for families affected and this is a momentous day for patients who have tirelessly campaigned for this decision.” [1]

Last fall, a team of U.S. doctors announced that the world’s first three-parent baby had been born in Mexico on 6 April 2016 to a Jordanian couple. The team held off on the announcement for five months to make sure the child didn’t have the same condition that killed his siblings, Leigh syndrome – a fatal disorder that affects the central nervous system.

NHS admits far too many preventable deaths still stem from medical mistakes

Image: NHS admits far too many preventable deaths still stem from medical mistakes

Jude Henry
January 1, 2017

When someone’s life ends it is always tragic, and loved ones experience grief and loss. But it is even more tragic when a person passes away and their death could have been avoided, such as in cases of negligence, carelessness and error. That is exactly what has happened in numerous instances in the UK, yet the NHS has not improved in its policies and procedures for investigating those instances of avoidable deaths that involve inept care for patients.

NHS’s stated goals and plans are not coming to fruition

According to the NHS’s own website:

“Every day a million people are treated safely and successfully in the NHS. However, when incidents do happen it is important that lessons are learned to prevent the same incident occurring elsewhere. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) investigation is a well-recognised way of doing this. RCA Investigations identify how and why patient safety incidents happen. Analysis is used to identify areas for change and to develop recommendations which deliver safer care for our patients.”

However, this is not entirely accurate, as the cases discussed below show.

Examples of insufficient investigations into preventable deaths

A couple of cases in particular stand out as examples of the NHS’s questionable handling of preventable deaths involving negligent care. Richard Handley, who had various health issues including Down’s syndrome, passed away in 2012 at the age of 33 while receiving care at Ipswich Hospital. Sadly, his health needs were not being properly managed leading up to his death, and this likely contributed to the tragic outcome in his case.

Connor Sparrowhawk, who was 18 when he died, suffered from health issues including epilepsy and a learning disability. At the time of his death in 2013, he was receiving care from a center that Southern Health NHS oversaw. His family obtained an independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death, and the results indicated that neglect and error had contributed to his death, which could have been avoided.

In both of these cases, the initial investigation indicated no questionable circumstances, but the patients’ families pushed for additional investigations, which determined that neglect was involved. Thus, the NHS did not push hard enough to obtain the facts and get to the bottom of the cases. The families, despite the turmoil they were already going through, were the ones that had to press the issue in an attempt to uncover the truth.

Much more needs to be done

The NHS has been inconsistent thus far in terms of how it looks into cases in which a patient died possibly as a result of negligence and error, and it has also not been interested enough in learning from wrongful deaths when they occur. Needless to say, this is a significant problem. Beginning in April 2017, the NHS will be publishing information on deaths that could have been prevented. That information, which will be available not just to patients but to the general public, will include details regarding which hospitals are gleaning some lessons from their errors.

Although it is a positive sign that the NHS will disclose that information, it is unclear at this point whether that will truly help to counter disinformation and assist with the ultimate goal, which is reducing the adverse circumstances that occur while patients are in the NHS system.

Time will tell whether the NHS will permanently change its ways and begin giving cases of questionable deaths their fair treatment. The NHS certainly owes at least that much to the grieving families whose loved ones entrusted their care to the NHS and who tragically died as a result of carelessness and negligence.

What’s The Bill For Brexit? A Modest Proposal And Memo For Prime…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
December 22, 2016

Just when you thought it was safe to venture out of the European Union box, you get presented a bill for 50 Billion pounds, according to this story shared by Mr. R.M.:

UK faces Brexit settlement bill of up to £50 billion, sources say

There’s something here that grabbed my eye, and it presages a looming fight between London and Brussels. Consider these statements carefully:

The calculation is believed to include the obligation for the UK to pay into the EU Budget until the end of 2020, having signed up to the Multiannual financial framework already, as well as the UK’s share of outstanding pensions liabilities and other payments associated with loan guarantees.

The Czech Republic’s Europe minister, Tomas Prouza, reportedly said the huge sums were “only things the UK has already committed itself to paying”.

When asked if British people should expect a bill worth tens of billions of pounds, Mr Prouza responded: “Definitely.

“This is what the UK has already committed to pay, and we would expect that the UK would honour its commitments. It will be one of the first issues coming up on the table.”

Downing Street said the UK would meet its obligations while it remained a member of the EU – but any financial settlement after that would be a matter for negotiation.

“Decisions on how UK taxpayers’ money is spent will be decisions for the UK to take moving forward,” a No.10 source said. (Emphasis added)

In other words, the Brussels bureaucrats are dictating that London has to fully honor all its EU commitments to 2020, even if it leaves the EU before then, and that includes Brussels telling the UK how it is going to spend that money.  And London, of course, is saying, in effect, that the idea that Britain would have to continue to pay full membership obligations are that it is no longer fully a member after leaving the EU is  “just plain barmy!” Of course, London has a point: if the U.K. leaves the EU say, in 2018,  why should it have to continue paying its full “membership dues” to a club it is no longer a member of, and doesn’t want to be a member of?

The EM Space Drive Now In Public Patent Process In The United Kingdom

October 23, 2016

Over the past three days I’ve been blogging about the strange space news that forms, in my opinion, the necessary backdrop to the recent presidential Executive Order issued by President Obama in respect to “space weather,” and today’s story is no exception. By now most regular readers here have heard of the EM drive, the drive that produces thrust by relying on microwaves. The drive began in obscurity and, of course, disbelief from a certain segment of the scientific community, but has overcome enough opposition in various tests to be granted a trial test in outer space, and now, according to this story shared by Ms. K.M., is in the process of patent in the United Kingdom, the country where the EM drive was first unveiled:

A Patent For The Controversial & ‘Impossible’ Quantum Space Engine (EM Drive) Was Just Made Public

As the article avers, the significance of a patent implies some sort of scientific validity to the concepts behind the engine. But there are a number of statements in this article that give me pause, both for the hints and suggestions that the principles of the operation of this engine might be different from what was previously stated about it, and for the possibility that this technology might be far older than imagined, and that what we’re witnessing is one of those “controlled releases” of information of a “limited hangout” nature, but that is today’s high octane speculation which we’ll get to in a moment.

Here are the statements:

Utilizing electromagnetic waves as fuel, the EM drive creates thrust by bouncing microwave photons back and forth in a cone-shaped metal cavity.

Now, Newton’s Third Law states that without exhaust you can’t produce thrust, or if something needs an “equal and opposite reaction,” something needs to be coming out of the back of the propulsion system to push it forward, and the EM drive doesn’t have that.

It’s called the law of conservation of momentum, but this invention taps into the ‘zero-point‘ field of energy/electromagnetic waves.

By the way, the laws of physics need to be changed to account for the fact that space is not empty.

Experiments from a number of researchers from around the world and NASA have shown that it can indeed produce thrust with enough power to propel a spacecraft.

Now it is not entirely true that the “laws of physics need to be changed to account for the fact that space is not empty.” After all, the 19th century aether lumeniferous theory was essentially a theory of a non-empty space, and the idea that vacuum space has an energy of its own that is limitless and inexhaustible falls out of some models of quantum mechanics. What is new here is that previously the EM drive was said to be a simple microwave thrust.

Now however, that story has changed to the idea that the EM drive is really producing thrust or, to be more precise, a vector translation force, because of its utilization of the zero point energy. I find this highly intriguing for a number of reasons, the first of which is this paper, which is referenced in the article itself:

Anomalous Thrust Production From an RFT Test Device

If one goes to the diagram Figure 15 on page 12 of this paper, one will see something that I personally find very intriguing, for notice the counter-rotation of the device in stacked vortices along the central axis of the cone, and what appears to be a diagrammatic representation of a greater “thrust” toward the narrow end of the cone. Not to coin a pun, but this rang a certain Bell with me, for this is exactly the type of “reverse engineering” I attempted to do for the acclaimed Nazi device in my various books on the subject. Granted, this EM drive is not using any mysterious “Xerum 525” or thorium isomers not direct electricity pulsing, but it is interesting to recall that Nazi scientist Ronald Richter specifically mentioned that plasmas in such a rotational configuration and coherence, when sharply pulsed under conditions of such radio frequency rotation and proper resonance, could tap into or “gate” the zero point energy (see my The Nazi International). It is also interesting to recall that in Igor Witkowski’s reconstruction of the Bell story, the device levitated, i.e., produced thrust (See Witkowski, The Truth about the Wunderwaffe).

Under these circumstances I strongly suspect that DARPA’s recent announced goal of having the USA be “warp capable” and Dr. Harold White’s NASA research into warp drives are possibly connected to this EM drive research.

So why then call it a “limited hangout”?

For the simple reasons pointed out by Dr. Paul LaViolette in his Secrets of Anti-Gravity Propulsion, for in that book, Dr. LaViolette recounted the early 1950s experiments precisely in microwave propulsion, utilizing the soliton effect, which also seems to be at last strongly suggested by Figure 15 in the above referenced paper. According to LaViollette, these experiments were actually successful… in the 1950s. It is when one puts these four stories – the Nazi Bell (as I attempted to ‘reverse engineer’ it from Witkowski’s recounting), the 1950s microwave drive experiments recounted by LaViolette, Richter’s statements on rotating cohered plasmas under high DC electrical stress, and the EM drive – together that one sees an intriguing pattern emerge…

Cut Off: RT bank accounts in UK will be closed without explanation

The bank RT uses in the United Kingdom has announced that all the channel’s bank accounts with the bank will be closed in the UK without providing any explanation. George Galloway, a former longtime British MP, joins RT and calls the bank’s decision “an attack on the freedom of speech” and says “the key problem is that RT has become extremely popular as the BBC has become increasingly unpopular.”
