This news story emerged on Friday: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20081219/tuk-mystery-lights-over-the-midlands-45dbed5.html . The photograph I use to illustrate this article is not one of the event reported herein, but one taken during the most famous other “lights in the sky” case: the Phoenix Lights in March 1997; the descriptions of this new case sound very similar. The UFO flap of this past year appears to be still going strong! It also seems to be centred in the area of Birmingham, the Black Country and environs. I’ve sent emails to everyone I know in that area to see if they’ve seen anything. I’ll mention below if I get any replies (protecting my witnesses’ anonymity of course.)

Security was very tight, much more so that during the Queen’s last visit to the hospital a few years ago. There were police everywhere and also some men trying very hard to look normal in normal clothes, but were about as convincing as Emily Howard’s lady impersonation in Little Britain. Why do undercover cops think nobody will rumble them? We could spot them a mile off!

What with the current financial recession (Background: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2008/09/new-wall-street-crash.html) it's possible that I've been targeted for "fiscal reeducation"! I'll keep you informed of any further developments.
Interestingly I've had odd experiences with my bank before. A few years ago I wrote to them, three times, about my Chip + PIN card asking what information was stored on the chip, and what the chip's capabilites were. They never replied.

The brilliant UFO researcher and Roswell truth campaigner, Stanton Friedman, has once again had to face a personal attack from the Conformist Scientific Establishment as they feverishly try to cling onto their collapsing conventional "aliens don't exist" paradigm. See this page: http://www.theufochronicles.com/2008/11/roswell-exhibit-conservative-scientists.html This is typical; if they can't shoot the message then they go for the messenger! I know how you feel, Stan, because I've experienced the same thing. Good luck to you! Don't lose heart, you have friends behind you.
As for HPANWO-readers: are you going to believe the hype, or hear both sides of the story and make up your own mind? Here's Stanton Frieman's website: http://www.stantonfriedman.com/

Does this prove the reality of the Near-Death Experience? It may well in the eyes of some researchers. Many consider it already proved, like Peter Fenwick (Here’s an interview with him: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=iyZxi3iChiA). Others like Susan Blackmore and Chris French (whom I’ve written about before. See: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/01/chris-french-mba-gold.html) maintain the Skeptical stance. I suspect they will continue to do so because of the pressure of MBA. This new addition to the debate will not be the last word on the matter. The Materialistic Paradigm is so fundamental to Western society that I doubt if it could function without it! This is reason enough to keep the matter forever juggling in the air, no matter what evidence is discovered.
Ross Hemsworth of Now That’s Weird (Background: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/06/now-thats-weird-conference-2008.html) has actually been to William Hill and put on a bet that proof of LAD, Life-After-Death, will be discovered. He got good odds of 500-1, if I recall. I doubt if he will be allowed to collect now, but if you put the same bet on today the odds would probably not be as high.

The question is not “Who’s going to win?” With just days to go Obama now has a decisive lead. The question is: Which would be the best president of the United States? My answer is: Who gives a shit!?
Obama’s appeal comes from his liberal image, like Kennedy, he represents hope and change. But if you look at the people in his administration what change do you see? His National Security Adviser is Zbigiew Brzezinski, an arch-conservative hawk who believes in using aggressive military power and high technology to dominate the globe (See: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/10/ian-crane-war-on-terra.html) There will be none of this promoted “Change” during Obama’s term of office. Or maybe I ought to rephrase: no change that his lords and masters in the Illuminati don’t want. If Obama were to disobey his lords and masters and try to excersise his Constitutional powers of office then all I can say to him is… avoid driving past any school book depositories!

Take no comfort from Mr Wheeler’s reassurances about the data not being saved and how the officer will delete your fingerprints in front of you if you like. This is not the real problem; the most dangerous effect this procedure will have is psychological and sociological. In the same way that a “small-scale harmless” school library database (Background: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2007/11/this-is-drawing-done-by-my-12-year-old.html) is not so much the problem as the psychological effects the practice of continuous fingerprint checks will have on the population. We are being psychologically acclimatized to considering the Database State normal and everyday. This is especially serious with children, but the adult population are not immune. It’s slowly creeping up on us! The attitude that this "Papieren Bitte!" Identity Check Culture (Background: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2007/09/papiere-bitte-snaps-fingers.html) is normal and everyday.
If I’m stopped by the police and asked to give my fingerprint on this portable machine I will politely but firmly refuse and explain the officer exactly the same reasons as I do in this article.

Terrific! So the solution to being ridiculed is to change our ways to appease those who ridicule us! Why don't those doing the ridiculing be made to change their ways... you know like stop riducling people! Duh!
Something similar happened to me when I was at school. I was being bullied and had to attend a special needs class with the Orwellian name of "Education for Living". The tutor taking the class (who had the unlikely name of Miss Blow- no joke!) was almost falling over herself with suggestions of changes I could make to my lifestyle that would stop the bullies targeting me. At no point did she suggest that it was the bullies who needed to change their ways and stop bullying. This is Prime Conformsim. It wasn't the bullies fault it was mine! It's like the rapist saying "she was asking for it!"
Think of the message this gives out. Violence is fine. Violating people for merely being different is fine. Being different is NOT fine. If you're bullied because you're different YOU are the one at fault! You're to blame for not being a clone

There's been some news from Gary McKinnon's legal team and it's bad I'm afraid:
Hacker Gary McKinnon to be extradited to US within days
Author: Ian GrantPosted: 18:02 13 Oct 2008Topics: Business Continuity
Self-confessed hacker Gary McKinnon's final appeal to be tried in Britain was turned down this afternoon. He is expected to be extradited to the US within days, where he faces charges that he was responsible for "the greatest military hack in history".
A statement from Gary McKinnon's lawyers, Kaim Todner, said, "The secretary of state has advised via the Treasury solicitors that despite Mr McKinnon's diagnosis with Asperger's Syndrome [an autistic condition] she will now be making arrangements for his extradition based on her order for extradition of 4 July 2006.
"She has failed to make any request for repatriation to the US when other countries make similar requests on behalf of their citizens."
McKinnon's attorney, Karen Todner, said she has asked Secretary of State Jacqui Smith for permission to seek a judicial review of the decision to extradite McKinnon. Smith will give her decision tomorrow morning.
If granted, McKinnon will have 14 days to apply for the review, which will be held by the High Court. If he decides not to ask for the review he will have 10 days to prepare himself for extradition.
Todner described McKinnon as "devastated". "He has been suffering from depression for several months now," she said.
She added she was "optimistic" that Smith would grant permission for the judicial review.
McKinnon has failed in his appeal against extradition in every available court in the UK and Europe.
I've suggested on the FreeGary website that we picket the airport when they try to fly him out; either that or form a human shield around his house.

As always these make interesting reading, although they lack any significant overall analysis or conclusion. However such analysis may well exist, but remains classified. I saw Nick Pope on GMTV this morning. He’s a man I met at the Now That’s Weird Conference in June where I talked to him extensively and reviewed his speech here: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/06/now-thats-weird-conference-2008.html . He had a tough time with Jon Stapleton and Fiona Philips; Fiona said “Well I don’t believe a word of it, but I suppose we should keep an open mind.” Nick replied: “I’m not saying for certain that we’re being visited by aliens, only that some UFO’s cannot be explained away by down-to-Earth means; they exhibit speeds, manoeuverability and behavior that no man-made aircraft could.” The newly-released reports include several close encounters with commercial aircraft in Kent and Northern Ireland. The Kent incident is particularly alarming because it was reported by an airliner flying low over Lydd that nearly collided with a “brown missile”.

Things are looking bad for the government’s Big Brother agenda! The House of Lords has voted decisively to reject the proposed increase of the internment period from 28 to 42 days. If this law had passed it would have meant that the police would have been able to arrest you and hold you without charge for 6 weeks! They could have done that to anybody and would not have needed to give any reason at all! See: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1077672/UK-faces-major-terror-plot-warns-minister--just-hours-Government-ditches-42-day-detention-plan.html
This same week BALPA, the British Airline Pilots Association and several other trade unions of air travel workers are taking action to prevent their members being used as “guinea pigs” for the National Identity Card scheme: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2008/oct/12/idcards . As I say in the linked background article above, the government is picking off one section of society at a time to introduce the ID card system by stealth, but if we get wise to them, it won’t work.
Gordon Brown immediately struck back with a speech about the dangers of terrorism. It concerns me that if their Big Brother agenda really isn’t working and the people are determined to refuse it, the government might resort to staging another “terrorist atrocity” to ram the message home. If such an event occurs we must keep our heads and remain focused; don’t forget that it will be in all likelihood, like 9/11 and 7/7 certainly were, a black-budget military operation designed to look like a terrorist attack.

I was feeling very drowsy and a lot of hypnotizing, loud vibration was coming from the carriage I was in. Hence I was lulled into a kind of half-sleep in my seat and that’s when it happened. I caught sight on an entity reflected in the carriage window. It was dark outside and the train’s interior was well lit so it was reflected very strongly, if not completely clearly, and with the inevitable distortions that window reflection causes. It looked like a large man with a bald head, or very thin hair. He was wearing a white, long-sleeved garment like a steward’s jacket. Unfortunately because I was in a half-sleep state I couldn’t move my gaze or focus my eyes, so I couldn’t make out any other details. I could see that the reflection was coming from a real object which lay in my peripheral vision, but I was stuck staring fixatedly at the same spot, the window. It’s hard to say how long this experience lasted, but it must have been a few minutes or so. The entity didn’t move or make any sound; he just stared at me. He was standing in the aisle between the two rows of seats, four rows (about ten feet) ahead of me. I felt no vibes of love or positive feelings from him, but I felt no hostility either. I just felt that he was studying me very carefully but dispassionately. When I snapped awake he instantly vanished. I looked around me but he was nowhere to be seen. This incident happened at about 8.30PM on the journey between the stations of Derby and Birmingham New Street. When I returned to Nottinghamshire the following week I told Ustane about my experienced and she gasped. She ran upstairs and brought down her photo album. She pointed to an old black-and-white photo and asked: "Is this what you saw?" I said "Yes; or something very similar." The photo was of a man behind a pub bar weraing a white stewards' jacket. "That's my dad." she said. "He died in 1988."
I must stress that I'd never seen this photo or been given any description of Ustane's father before that time. Well, if what I saw on the train was Ustane's father it explains his interest in me! Like any dad, he wants to know what kind of blokes his daughter is associating with. I hope I met with his approval!

Here’s the news story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7634111.stm . “Yes, but it’s not everyone! It’s only foreigners! They bloody deserve it anyway! Bloody scroungers!” I hear you say. But this is what they want you to think! They pick off small groups of us one at a time, like the airport staff I mention in the background articles. They’re counting on us not caring because it’s “not in our backyard” until so many have been signed up that they can then play their ace: “Oh, well. We might as well sign everybody else up”. Game, set and match: The psychological manipulators! As Pastor Neimoller said when he was persecuted by the regime in Nazi Germany:
“First the came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak out because I’m not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak out because I’m not a Communist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I’m not a trade unionist. Then they came for me… and there was nobody left to speak out for me.”

The truth is that we’ve become very fond of these beautiful gifts from our friends from other worlds. They inspire us, enthrall us and fill us with peace, wonder and joy. We don’t want to come to term with the awful truth that we might have to say goodbye to them… but guess what: I’m happy to report that we don’t!
2008 has been more than a recovery! It has been a much better improvement than anyone hoped for. One commenter is calling it: “The best Crop Circle year ever!” We’ve seen not only dozens of brand new innovative styles, but a few “retro” ones: “insectoids”, "fractals", “dolphins”, “speech bubbles”, “quintuplets” and other genres from the 80’s and 90’s. Take a look at Crop Circle Connecter in the links column of the main HPANWO site.
Nobody knows how long our otherwordly brothers and sisters are going to keep giving us these wonderful gifts. A time might come when they will cease, and that will be a sad day. But I reckon that if crop circles ever do end then it will be because the cosmic artists have decided we don’t need them any more; we’ve evolved enough to manage without them. There’s no way of knowing when that day will come, or whether it will ever come at all. But one thing’s for certain: That day is not now!

Here’s the page on The Archers’ site that deals with this aspect of the plot. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/archers/catch/this_week.shtml?sun
Here’s the interesting bit:
The IOUs are getting out of hand and Susan’s had enough. The swap club committee meet to discuss their situation. Pat and Jennifer are determined not to give up on the transition community and Pat volunteers to research other similar schemes. If there’s a way out of this mess, she’s sure she’ll find it.
The "Swap Club" and “IOU’s” are what the fictional Ambridge community calls their LETS organization. As the storyline shows, these economic initiatives are never easy and need a lot of hard work, but it’s a challenge we should rise to because it beats being a slave to the global banking, financial and currency system any day.
I’m very impressed with The Archers’ production team. This is the longest-running soap in all history, TV or radio, and they’ve managed to keep it daringly and perceptively topical.
Here’s that Welsh Pound article again, seeing as it’s so relevant: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/04/welsh-pound.html
Tuesday 16 September 2008
But the source of this fear comes from the fact that we do all our business in the official currency of our country. I earn pounds and pence, I spend pounds and pence. I borrow loans of pounds and pence. What if we chose to use a different currency, one of our own making that is independent of any state or corporate financial institution? What if? We know because we have! In the wake of the 1929 Crash some people realized this and started establishing small, local private economies. One of them is still going today, the Ithaca Hour: http://www.ithacahours.org/ . Taking control of our own economic activity not only protects us from the dangers of economic recession, but frees us from the financial control of the global economic system, that is penning us into smaller and smaller boxes of currency choice: the Euro has replaced dozens of national units of exchange. No doubt a world currency will follow, to completely tie up the economic lives of the populace and give total control to the Global Elite. It doesn’t have to be like that. See what I wrote about Workers Cooperatives (http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2007/09/workers-cooperatives.html) and Basic Income (http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/05/basic-income.html). Most important of all, read my srticle on "Williams the Wad" and the Welsh Pound: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/04/welsh-pound.html . We can take the initiative and calmly step out of the financial prison of the world banking cartel. No need for violent revolution or insurrection. We simply stop forging our own shackles. Who’s in?

What will happen now? Well despite all the media's flurrious remarks, the world will not end today! We won't meet any future time-travellers this morning either! The beams may be circulating now, but it will be a month or two before they have been fine-tuned enough to allow the first low-power collisions to take place. It will be many more months, at least, until the LHC will be brought up to full power, what Wagner and Rossler etc consider the dangerous power range when black holes, monopoles and strangelets might be produced (Some say this will be first achieved in the fateful period of late 2012!) But the truth is: with the LHC we are playing with matches. What might we see when the foundations of the universe are laid bare? To quote Uncle Andrew from CS Lewis’ Narnia book The Magician's Nephew: “Anything! Absolutely anything!” The movie The Mist is very good http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0884328/ . It's a frightening horror movie, based on a Stephen King story, about a thick mist that descends on a small seaside town. Horrid monsters appear in the mist that attack the people living there and the survivors have to take refuge in a supermarket. It turns out later in the film that a nearby government laboratory has been doing experiments to create a "Stargate" to a parallel dimension. And remember what Uncle Andrew said about parallel dimensions!

"That's a certain possibility, Phil. The government will employ Bernaysian marketing and advertising techniques to make the ID cards appeal. Of course though, if we become aware of these mind-games they cease to work, so it's vital that we warn people in advance that this will be done. These mind-games are used on us constantly, in product advertising and political speeches. And it's a lot more subtle and crafty than you might guess. I was in London yesterday and heard that the new emergency vehicle sirens sound just like old Blitz air-raid sirens! So the subliminal message 'You're in danger of being blown up! Run for your shelters, have you got your gas masks?' And this therefore enhances the government's line that ID cards will protect us from terrorism."

But there’s another reason to oppose the loss of the subway: A number of years ago some beautiful murals were painted on the walls, depicting scenes that counterpoint the culture and environment of daily life in Headington. These pictures are very stylish, warm and humourous. Some of them have a very sophisticated surrealism to them. I decided to take some photos of the murals to preserve them in case the council goes ahead with its “hare-brained” scheme to demolish the subway. It’s fairly typical of this world in that gimmicky economic false-progress takes precedence over everything, even… no especially… deep and meaningful human creativity. They'd much rather we just stared at blank concrete; God forbid that we should enjoy soul-enrichment and inspiration!
Here are some highlights of the mural. As you can see, I’m no Koo Stark and I only have a cheap fun camera, but I’ve written to the Oxford Mail to ask if they’ll send a proper photographer to the subway to record the mural properly… before it’s too late:
This is a depiction of the famous rooftop shark sculpture by the local businessman Bill Heine; it is on the roof of his house on nearby New High Street.
