The River-Merchant’s Wife

After Li Po

While my hair was still cut straight
     across my forehead
I played at the front gate, pulling
     flowers.
You came by on bamboo stilts, playing
     horse,
You walked about my seat, playing with
     blue plums.
And we went on living in the village of
     Chokan:
Two small people, without dislike or
     suspicion.  

At fourteen I married My Lord you.
I never laughed, being bashful.
Lowering my head, I looked at the wall.
Called to, a thousand times, I never
     looked back.

At fifteen I stopped scowling,
I desired my dust to be mingled with
     yours
Forever and forever and forever.
Why should I climb the lookout?

At sixteen you departed,
You went into far Ku-to-en, by the river
     of swirling eddies,
And you have been gone five months.
The monkeys make sorrowful noise
     overhead.

You dragged your feet when you went
     out,
By the gate now, the moss is grown,
     the different mosses,
Too deep to clear them away!
The leaves fall early this autumn, in
     wind.
The paired butterflies are already
     yellow with August
Over the grass in the West garden;
They hurt me.  I grow older.
If you are coming down through the
     narrows of the river Kiang,
Please let me know beforehand,
And I will come out to meet you
          As far as Cho-fu-sa.

Timothy Leary's mug shot prior to his jail break and flight to Algeria. Timothy Leary’s mug shot prior to his jail break and flight to Algeria.

About a year ago I came across an article titled “Timothy Leary and the CIA” by Walter H. Bowart, who wrote a book about MK ULTRA one year before John Marks did, but did so with Marks’ help. Bowart’s book, Operation Mind Control (1978), was based on personal accounts of brainwashing from people Bowart found through classified advertisements in Rolling Stone and Soldier of Fortune magazines. (Rolling Stone was the home of CIA chief William Colby’s pet literary agent David Obst.)

In “Timothy Leary and the CIA” Bowart describes an interview he conducted with Leary in prison after Leary’s stunt in Algeria with Eldridge Cleaver, which Playboy covered in ’71. I’ll point out that not just anybody can get access to prisoners like Leary; especially if that ‘anybody’ writes things which the…

Golden Dawn…How To Engage In Political Activism

The people of a nation come first, not the moneyed interests.  The people of a nation are a breeding group.

AND NEVER give up your guns!

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!” – Solzhenitsyn

In Part I of this series I showed how A.C. Spectorsky, Playboy’s link with the “East Coast Establishment”, showcased an inordinate number of intelligence community writers on the magazine’s cover. To give an idea of how just many spooks Spectorsky featured between ’59-’76:  30% of cover-featured contributors had strong intelligence connections and their work represents about 35% of featured stories.

Last time I also looked at Playboy’s weird, Orwellian promotion of racial integration alongside Black nationalism. I’m going to build on this ‘strange bedfellows’ theme today with ‘Billionaires and Communists'; as well as ‘Literary Brahmins and Pulp Publishers’.

Billionaires and Communists

Playboy magazine worships wealth; the ‘playboy lifestyle’ is one of endless, unrelenting consumption. Spectorsky’s biographer Steven Watts speculates that…

The Nemtsov killing: Cui bono?

In the normal course of events I’d have assumed that Putin had been involved in the murder of  his opponent Boris Nemtsov either directly or indirectly.  But times are certainly not normal given the constant provocation of Russia by the ‘West’ – primarily the USA and its lapdog Britain.Having  applied punitive sanctions, conspired to crash the price of oil.  provoked civil war and bankruptcy in Ukraine  (whose gold has been whipped out to America for ‘safe-keeping’), we now learn that oily Dave Cameron plans to send 250 ‘military advisers’ to that unfortunate country. As if they needed more soldiers.

Even Mikhail Gorbachev himself has warned of  the danger of nuclear war if the provocations continue.

On cue the Western MSM, just like they did with flight MH-17 (notice how that story suddenly disappeared once the black box was analysed?) and, without a shred of evidence, assigned responsibility to Putin. And Nemtsov became a fearless national martyr, the Man Who Dared Challenge The Great Dictator. So here’s a little offsetting background on our hero Nemtzov. Prominent in Yeltsin’s Jewish Mafia, after the fall of Communism he organised the  handing over of numerous multi-billion dollar publicly owned enterprises and resources to the appointed ones for a pittance . Thus he midwifed the birth of the Russian Oligarchs.

Before getting his hands on the loot at national level he had had a dry run as Governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region, a position he reached at the remarkably tender age of 29. Purely on ability, I have no doubt. Yeltsin then catapulted him and another top Jewish Mafioso Anatoly Chubais into “direct unsupervised control” of the state asset disposal. Having duly enriched himself and The Family he then, like Khodorovsky, sought elective political power. This attempt became legend as he made his election appeal – on behalf of the ‘common man’ – from the lounge of his luxurious private jet.  As you can imagine this didn’t go down too well with the newly impoverished nation. His appeal was as a consequence limited and he was nowhere close to being an electoral threat to Putin.

On any occasion such as this one must ask cui bono?  Putin has gained nothing apart from getting rid of an irritating gadfly. But the downside for him is major, providing a propaganda bonanza for his enemies, turning up the volume of the war drums in the West, opening the possibility of a “Maidan Moment” of destabilisation in Moscow, and undermining the chances of a peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian and Syrian crises. So if Putin was indeed behind this he’s made a very bad and stupid move. And we don’t associate him with bad and stupid moves.

I don’t for one minute claim to know what happened or who’s responsible. But it looks all too like another dangerous escalation of hostilities by Russia’s enemies. I truly believe that the world is in serious danger of a major war, a war without doubt provoked by the ZioCons in America and their British satrap.

Our best hope of avoiding it lies in the European nations showing a bit of backbone for once and telling the ZioCon War Party in America to take a flying fuck.

But I’m not holding my breath.

A Word To The European Man by Revilo Oliver

Ooooops, I made a mistake.  The audio below is a speech given by Jack Pershing at the National Alliance convention in 1983.  Sorry Jack, great speech though.

 

Oliver speaks of Ezra Pound and Jeb Stuart.  Listen carefully and know what you are made of.

Erat Hora

‘Thank you, whatever comes.’ And then she turned
And, as the ray of sun on hanging flowers
Fades when the wind hath lifted them aside,
Went swiftly from me. Nay, whatever comes
One hour was sunlit and the most high gods
May not make boast of any better thing
Than to have watched that hour as it passed
