Ben Emlyn-Jones on Nox Mente

I have been interviewed on the Nox Mente show on the Voces Nocte network, see:
Those two names are Latin for "mind night" and "night of voices". This is a highly unusual discussion where we talk about a lot of subjects I don't normally bring up publicly, including my own past, significance dreams that I have had when asleep, and paranormal experiences of my own and my family's. Also a possible mind control attack of my family. Thanks to Jerry and Niish for bringing me onto the show.

Starship Troopers- Sargon's Review

Since I wrote my review of the science fiction novel Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, Carl Benjamin, the YouTuber "Sargon of Akkad", has produced his promised video documentary about it, see: I must say that it has made me reconsider my own position. Sargon's review is based on both the book and the film adaptation and he claims that Paul Verhoeven does not really understand the book he is satirizing. I myself said that I suspected the book itself is a very subtle satire. Sargon denies that the story promotes fascism and brings some intriguing analysis to bear. He compares the human society in the setting to some archaic forms of real world democratic statehood. He says that it is fairly similar to the Roman Republic that lasted from 509 BC to 27 AD. There are two castes of individual, but the "civilian" and "citizen" system is not a symptom of fascism. The Terran Federation appears to be fairly libertarian and prosperous. The atmosphere of Johnny Rico's school days is similar to that of being a youth in 1950's America; rich, free and optimistic. The civilians are not slaves; they enjoy legal rights and own private property, as is obvious from the lifestyle of Johnny's parents, both in the book and the film. The state does not dictate and interfere in the personal lives of the people, whether citizen or civilian. All people have the right to apply to try and earn citizenship; however, even after the Buenos Aires attack, there is no draft. The Mobile Infantry remains a strictly volunteer force throughout. The licence to have babies that is discussed in the shower scene in Verhoeven's movie does not occur in the original book. There is also political accountability. After the massacre of the Mobile Infantry on Klendathu, the Sky Marshal, leader of the Federation, resigns. In a fascist society political power is never abdicated in such a way. Another difference to fascism is that the Federation has a free media, in fact it is far more candid that the media in today's real world. The newsreels, one of the best elements of the movie, are perfectly willing to show very gruesome scenes from the battlefield. Also one of the funniest scenes in the film is the TV debate about the intelligence level of the bugs between two very eccentric pundits who vehemently disagree. In a fascist media no dissenting opinions are tolerated. Sargon also makes the important point that the bugs are the aggressors and the Federation is acting in self-defence. This would make the war a legitimate one under the Kellogg-Briand Pact. The narrative of both the book and film is not in sequence and has a complex network of flashbacks making it hard to follow. This is why the rights and wrongs of the war appear so ambiguous. The war started when the bugs destroyed Buenos Aires by steering a giant meteor towards it. All the people in the city were killed.

Service to the Terran Federation is the social contract that gives a citizen political power and Sargon of Akkad explains how that is different from fascism and he is correct. He states that it is actually similar to what Dr Jordan Peterson proposes. The society we have now spoon-feeds the people unconditionally. This does not only breed lassitude; it also creates dependency. If citizenship was something people had to earn then it would be an incentive to live more productive and independent lives. However this still doesn't excuse the militarily religious aspect of the story and the point I made in my own review about how that is unfair and makes the populace vulnerable to abuse. Every philosophical point Heinlein and Sargon propose is dependent on the state being a benevolent entity. What if it is not? What if it is something pathological like so many of the governments of the real earth? What if the Buenos Aires attack was a false flag? Sargon claims that the federal service system would naturally weed out corruption, but I'm not so sure. The Roman Republic appeared unable to prevent Julius Caesar taking it over and creating the Roman Empire, see: Also, as I said myself, the story is based on the premise that the Federation was created not only for the benefit of all the earth's people, but also with their consent. There is no description anywhere of any nationalist rebellions in any formerly independent country in the world. If such a rebellion arose, would the people be permitted to leave the Federation? Would a Brexit-like process be allowed? We are never told. There's no doubt that Heinlein entertained many different political positions during his lifetime, but he did not become more rightwing with age, as Sargon claims. In the background link I mention Friday, a novel from his later period. The central protagonist of the story is a genetically engineered secret agent from the future. She is an amiable character who is very bighearted in a world where most people are indifferent and cruel. There is nothing militaristic about the heroes of the book; in fact they are very non-military kinds of people who fight back against excessive police violence, state bureaucracy and political corruption, as well as the bigotry and stupidity of their families and friends. The main character is also bisexual and promiscuous, although she is capable of passionate love. I much prefer Friday to Starship Troopers and indeed I find it hard to accept that they both have the same author. Robert E Heinlein must have been a very complicated person.

David Icke live in Newcastle

It's been over two years since I last went to a live David Icke lecture. The previous time was in 2016, see: A lot has changed since then. We had a Leave vote in the EU referendum and we're still waiting for Brexit to be delivered. I've split up with Sue Ustane. David has had a couple more grandchildren. Also since then there has been an upswing in the recurring cycle of insulting nonsense that David hates Jews. This means he was not able to reveal the venue of his talk until twenty-four hours beforehand. If he had not taken this precaution then his enemies would have threatened the hosts and even turned up to harass the audience with violence; see here for more information: I headed to the event with my friends from Truth Seekers North East for whom I am doing my own live tour, see: I felt a bit like a secret agent as we drove into the Newcastle racecourse, looking around to see if any masked and angry Antifa gangs were around. Luckily we had given them the slip. We had dinner in the onsite pub and then three of my friends went ahead while the rest of us finished our meal. When we arrived they had grabbed some front row seats. They had met David and taken photos with him, see above. He is wearing an official Truth Seekers North East hat, although he clearly doesn't want to mess his hair up so soon before going on stage. The lecture took place in a large conference room overlooking the racecourse, although at that time of night there were no horses galloping. There were about two hundred seats and all were full; the event was a sell-out. I saw a few people I knew from other places. As soon as he got on stage, David gave a shout-out to Truth Seekers North East and they are all delighted by such an endorsement. The format of David's talks has changed. He has gone from the all-day twelve hours to an evening of four and a half hours, with a single break of just ten minutes. He covers a lot of the same material that he has done before; this is to be expected because his live shows, like his books, are intended to be self-contained. He has updated his repertoire with new information and uses different metaphors and terminology. For instance what he used to call "the hassle-free zone" he now calls "the postage stamp consensus". The first two thirds of the event were the bad news and the last third was the good news; this is a hallmark of his style that has been around since he first went conspiratorial in the early 1990's. He still wears the trademark blue shirt which has become as much a motif as Andrew Johnson's fleece. He closes his eyes a lot while talking and I wonder if he is channelling. All in all, this event was another triumph for David Icke. I felt informed and inspired as I do at every one of David's shows. No SJW's turned up to ruin it. Straight after the event he headed off to Cardiff for the next stop on his tour. He is accompanied by his roadies, his son Jaymie and his girlfriend. Thanks very much to David, his team and Truth Seekers North East for such a wonderful evening.

Capel Green Trailer 3

As the spring 2019 launch for Capel Green approaches, a third trailer has been released. This is the longest one so far, four minutes twenty-three seconds: It includes some clips from the fictionalized reconstruction that you can read more about in the "update" article in the background links below. Another witness speaks out, Michael Stacy Smith. He was armed with a machine gun and took the threat so seriously that he was preparing to use it. Lori Rehfeldt was an officer in the law enforcement section who has also recently gone public. As I reported in the background links, Steve Longero is now willing to talk openly about those fateful nights and is interviewed for the film. Also at the UFO Truth Magazine conference the audience saw other clips from the film not yet publicly available. I have no doubt that this is going to be one of the most important UFO documentaries ever made. So enjoy the new trailer. I hope you can hear the soundtrack alright; it might be drowned out by the wailing of triggered trolls!

Armistice 100

Weeping Windows is an exhibition by Paul Cummins and Tom Piper. It is made of thousands of ceramic poppies emerging and pouring out of the chimney of the famous Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, see: It resembles another larger work by Paul Cummins at the Tower of London that I've mentioned before in the background links. These works of art look like blood flowing. The former is intended to commemorate the first centenary of Armistice. This took place one hundred years ago this coming Sunday, at eleven AM on Monday the 11th of November 1918, "the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month". The ceasefire endured and the war was formally ended the following June at the Treaty of Versailles. Since then Armistice Day has been celebrated in the United Kingdom, British Empire and Commonwealth every year; and the Sunday closest, the second one in November, is Remembrance Sunday in Britain. The Great War, or First World War, was by far the most terrible war the world had ever seen and, in terms of military losses, it still is. The true death toll is argued over and it ranges from about twelve to eighteen million. The horrific irony is that historians are still not sure exactly why it happened. As the comedian Robert Newman jokes, it surely wasn't just about the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. "Nobody is that popular!" see: The peaceniks of the 1960's used to say: "What if they had a war and nobody turned up?" Another catchphrase might be: "What if they had a war and nobody paid for it?" The only reason the Great War could take place, and indeed any war can take place, is money. As David Icke among many others has pointed out, both sides in the war were funded from the Bank of England, see: In fact it has been calculated that without the abuse of finance, wars on the scale of World War I could never happen, they would simply be too expensive. The pattern Icke talks about continues down through history with World War II and the way Adolf Hitler had connections to British and American bankers, and also the covert support for the Soviet Union that Anthony Sutton has discovered which makes a mockery of the entire Cold War, see: Nobody wants wars, but we keep getting them. Why? There are many reasons, and I go into detail about them in the background links; but one of them, the most sickening and frightening, is occult. This counts especially for the First World War. One of the reasons it took place was for a Satanic Illuminati sacrifice, the blood sacrifice of millions of young men. A century later it is still going on. Let the world know the truth this Armistice centenary so that it can end and no such evil can happen again.

St Helena Airport- One Year On

St Helena Airport opened one year ago. I covered it at the time: As you can see in the poster above, it has achieved a lot, including two flights on average every week. The number of people who have passed through the airport exceeds the population of the island by a full half. As you can see when those figures are broken down, almost three quarters of those people are visitors to the island; the remainder are natives. This indicates that I was correct in my predictions in the background links below. St Helena has indeed been opened out to the world. The island is still importing more than it exports by a factor of about four to one. It's still too soon to gauge the long-term outcome of this project, but the general mood of the Saints, based on their social media contribution, is positive. I obtained the above tableau from a Tweet by the territory's governor Lisa Honan. This is not the end of my report; I will be posting more updates.

The Mind Set Podcast is Back!

Eighteen months ago Mind Set Central came to an end, but Gareth Davies was not completely certain if he wanted to close the doors on the station forever, see: Joe, Trevor and myself decided to continue independently with Third Rail Radio. Since then I'm delighted to report that Gareth has decided to bring back the Mind Set. He has a brand new website and has produced several shows, including some film reviews and a new episode of Paratalk with Reeves Cooke, see: Now, on the fourth of November 2018, the Mind Set Podcast is reconvened and I am honoured to be featured on the first show back.
Subjects discussed include: the 2016 Effect, rock star witnesses human shape-shifting, Dr Judy Wood's 9/11 study and much much more.
I will not be on the Mind Set Podcast every week, but I'm glad to be able to take part as often as I can or whenever Gareth wants me to. Third Rail Radio will continue too, although I'm taking a break from it because I have to finish writing my new book, see:
