I don't know about you guys, but when I was a kid flipping channels and I came across claymation, I stopped and watched, no matter what the subject. There's just something about the process of claymation that seems magical and otherworldly... almost Biblical, really. After all, what are we if not God's Golems; shaped clay with the magical spark of life inside of us? Anyway, I find it amusing that this claymation adaptation of an unfinished Mark Twain story addresses that very point, in very effective and extremely creepy fashion. Some might find it distasteful that such disturbing subject matter was deemed appropriate for children. Personally, I think it's fine, and well worth watching. So I share it with all of you. As always, comments are welcome!

Okay, hold on to your hats, folks, because this one is a doozy. 

In an "exclusive" interview with some fellow who answers to the highly suspicious moniker Alfred Lambremont Webre, "independent scientist" - I think that means she's not a scientist - Leuren Moret has stated that Japan has pulled the wasabi over all our big round eyes. 

You see, it only seems as though the earthquake-and-tsunami-prone nation of Japan has recently endured a horrific double-catastrophe involving a monster earthquake that spawned a monster tsunami, killing thousands and leaving much of their eastern seaboard a shambles. The reality of the situation is far more sinister. Because what's really going on here is the secret Freemason/Rockefeller/Rothschild rulers of Japan used a super-secret combination of their HAARP earthquake-triggering and chemtrail weather control technologies to wage a clandestine, surreptitious nuclear war against the west coasts of the USA, Canada and Mexico - "the major food producing areas for North America" - in order to "attack the health and genome of the North American population" in accordance with their long-term goal to "depopulate North America, and to make future humans less healthy and less resistant to takeover by a global New World Order."

Oh, and apparently, it also has something to do with finally getting construction started on that long-rumored NAFTA highway, too. According to Ms Moret: “The New World Order... will get North American Unification, the North American Union and their new drug delivery route. The NAFTA highway is their drug route from Mexico through the U.S. to Canada. Waco is on the NAFTA highway.  Waco is the Texas Headquarters for the Scottish Rite Masons. Waco, Texas, a key spot on the NAFTA highway, is a big drug depot."

Well, sure! That all makes perfect sense. But is there more to this frightening scenario? Yes, there is. Moret fleshes things out even further: "In Arkansas the Masonic Headquarters is very close to the NAFTA freeway. The bridge collapse in Minneapolis was because they needed to build a bigger bridge for the NAFTA highway. They used imminent domain for the land grab to build the bigger bridge. The NAFTA highway ends at Winnipeg, Manitoba, whose Provincial Legislature is a Masonic capital of Canada. The result of the radiation war against the United States, Canada, Mexico and Hawaii and the weakening of the population here is that... the New World Order gets the North American Unification of Canada, the United States and Mexico."

You may be asking yourself, BUT WHY?! Lucky for you, Ms Moret lays it all out in stark, simple English: "This provides more efficient drug delivery routes, destruction of democracy, and enslavement of the North American populations. The covert nuclear war has already hit. If you didn't prepare, sorry... In this dynamic environment the large amount of radiation released from Fukushima will be mixed in the global atmosphere in one year. Radiation respects no borders, no socio-economic class and no religion. It is an equal opportunity killer... There is nowhere to hide.”

The implications of Ms. Moret's revelations are so bone-chilling, so mind-boggling, so utterly and unmitigatedly flabbergasting that, upon hearing her words, one is left with chilled bones, a boggled mind and completely gasted flabbers. In fact, Ms Moret's words left Monsieur Lambremont-Webre so completely discombobulated that the only response his brain was able to fart up was this delightful bowlful of alphabet soup: 

"Well... is, is... uh... Wow. That's quite a... uh... so... this is a way, the... they, uh... the Japan... tectonic warfare using the HAARP, aerosol, chemtrail atmospheric plasma weapon system has now created, in effect, a multiple-Chernobyl in Fukushima. And... and... and, a-as I understand it, um... that Chernobyl is just getting started... right?"

Well, DUH, Monsieur Lambremont-Webre... what do YOU think?

Exclusive 60-minute interview with "Doctor" (ahem) Leuren Moret about the TRUTH (ahem) behind Japan's earthquake/tsunami/meltdown trifecta of disaster:



For the time being, at least. Let's see how long this connection holds up.

In the meantime, don't go anywhere! I'll have some new posts up within the hour, and I fully expect the comments sections to EXPLODE with... um... comments.

Thanks for your patience during this trying time. Now, I'm off to gobble up a chicken Pad Thai and some crispy calamari rings with sweet chili sauce, because I deserve it, goldangit!

Back in a jiff!

Dear Reader;

In case you haven't noticed, the Useless Eater Blog and her sister blog, the Daily Dirt Diaspora, have been in a state of non-regular-updatification over the last few days. This is not due to any laziness on my part, nor to any lack of stories to run. Instead, these blogs are currently "stalled" because my Internet inexplicably went down on Friday, and my ISP - an independent, not-for-profit outfit that I chose to go with out of what is beginning to seem like misguided idealism - has been passing the buck, blaming the "big guys" who own the pipeline over which my ISP delivers my connectivity service. Needless to say, this situation is beginning to induce an extreme amount of "miff" in me. I mean, Jesus Fucking Nailholes! It's not like I've been leeching my connection off some poor schlub down the hall from me who failed to password-protect his wireless connection! What the fuck?!

Anyway, I'm hoping this will get fixed by TOMORROW, so don't take us off your list of sites to visit daily just yet, okay? I appreciate your continued viewership, and ask you to trust me when I say that I've got loads and loads of interesting news reports, opinion pieces, book and movie reviews, videos, info-graphics and other stuff to share with you. So hold on tight, and I promise this blog will start living up to its potential very, very soon.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation!

This news story from today offers a troubling glimpse into the mindset of certain right-wing activist elements  in government:

An Indiana prosecutor and Republican activist has resigned after emails show he suggested Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker stage a fake attack on himself to discredit unions protesting his budget repair bill.
The Republican governor signed a bill on March 11 that eliminates most union rights for public employees.
In an email from February 19, Indiana deputy prosecutor Carlos F. Lam told Walker the situation presented "a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation."
The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism discovered the email among tens of thousands released to the public last week following a lawsuit by the Isthmus and the Associated Press.
"If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions' cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions," Lam said in his email.
"Currently, the media is painting the union protest as a democratic uprising and failing to mention the role of the DNC and umbrella union organizations in the protest," he continued. "Employing a false flag operation would assist in undercutting any support that the media may be creating in favor of the unions."
Lam resigned from his position after the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism published an article about his email.

There's more at the link. 

In any case, nice work, Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism! 

Sadly, as the political climate continues to heat up in coming years, I imagine we can expect more and more revelations of this sort to emerge.

Okay, so, what the Hell is going on, here?

Two American-built, NASA-launched satellites, both designed by the same private company with the goal of surveying key factors in our global environment - 2009's "Orbiting Carbon Observatory" and 2011's "Glory", which was to study the impact of aerosols on the climate - have both ended up at the bottom of the Pacific instead of up in the sky where they belong. What are the frickin' odds?! And, more importantly, what are the implications?

Yer old pal Jerky couldn't help but be suspicious. So he he strapped on his brain-boosting electro-helmet, swallowed a fistful of Adderalls, and set about applying a heaping helping of rigorous intuition to this topic. I am now prepared to say that it seems to me as though there are two possible scenarios playing out, here.

1. The global environmental situation is so dire, the planet's outlook so grim, that The Powers That Be - or some rogue faction thereof - are purposely sabotaging the tools that could be used by the scientific community to discover the true magnitude of the problem. This, because if any of these eggheads' findings were to work their way down to us Useless Eaters, it might spark a planet-wide panic-fueled mega-riot.

2. There really is no scientific basis for the belief that the Earth is facing an unprecedented complex of man-made ecological and climate crises. And perhaps The Powers That Be - or some rogue faction thereof - are attempting to prevent the scientific community from being able to prove this, because without an imaginary "crisis" to deal with, they would have no plausible excuse to implement the genocidal de-population programs they've been itching to kick-start since Malthus first put pen to paper.

Of course there are other possible explanations - everything from hostile alien intervention to mere coincidence to spontaneously-sentient Artificial Intelligences taking over both satellites and plunging them into the ocean in a case of double-cyber-suicide - but we do ourselves no favors by ignoring the obvious, here: Barack Obama was NOT born in this country, God-damnit!!!

That last part was a joke, by the way.


If you don't already know about Anonymous - or if you think you do, but aren't really sure - then you should probably read the excellent Wikipedia article about this multifaceted participatory online movement's origins, achievements, scandals and goals.

Although it originally spawned from a number of unrelated Internet message boards and humor sites - 4chan, Ebaum's World, Encyclopedia Dramatica and others - almost ten years ago, Anonymous today is far more than just a loose affiliation of hacker/trolls who occasionally venture out of their mothers' basements to smear pubic hair and petroleum jelly on unsuspecting Scientologists. It is a genuine phenomenon that is evolving into an important - some would have us believe dangerous - social movement.

Pinning down Anonymous isn't easy. Anyone can call themselves a representative and claim to be initiating an action on the group's behalf. Self-declared members are free to join in on these actions, or not. Some Anonymous campaigns - such as their anti-Scientology crusade, their international anti-censorship activities  and their campaigns in support of WikiLeaks - enjoy broad-based support and substantial approval. Other stunts - such as bombarding epileptic support group websites with flashing videos designed to trigger seizures in the photo-sensitive - not so much. However, since Anonymous has no leaders, collects no dues and maintains no headquarters, it is difficult, if not impossible, to bestow credit or lay blame.

Which makes the fact that they've published an "Open Letter to the Citizens of the United States of America" not only odd, but downright baffling. It raises all sorts of questions. For instance, if Anonymous has no leadership, who wrote this? Is it a hoax? And, if so, how would anyone ever know? If Anonymous attempts to deny authorship of this (or any other) document, that denial would be equally unverifiable, and thus suspect.

A quick perusal of this Open Letter reveals three things:

  • First, Anonymous could use a good copy editor. The text of this document contains spelling mistakes, dangling participles and mixed metaphors galore. 
  • Second, despite a few nods to "fair taxation" and "states' rights", it appears as though Anonymous is planting its flag firmly on the left side of America's political playing field. Ending corporate personhood, making healthcare a human right, ensuring clean air, water and food, enacting prison reform and decriminalizing marijuana... their list of demands reads more like a High Times editorial than a revolutionary manifesto. 
  • Finally, make no mistake about it, Anonymous wants YOU. They are recruiting. And this, despite the fact that, in a number of important ways, "they" don't even exist.

Personally, I'm still up in the air about Anonymous. I certainly approve of their anti-Scientology activities, and find their efforts to support Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to be commendable, even noble. On the other hand, some of their goofier, more mean-spirited pursuits - the "lulz" element of their shenanigans - leave a bad taste in my mouth. But that's just me.

After the page break, below, I will publish the full text of Anonymous' Open Letter for y'all to peruse at your leisure. It's being published all over the place, but I figure we might as well warehouse a copy here, as part of the Useless Eater Blog's efforts at archiving potentially important parapolitical documents. Where possible, I have retained the spelling and grammatical errors. Enjoy!


Is it "funny cuz it's true"? This "hilarious" report by the satirical Onion News Network claims that the CIA's invention of Facebook has "saved the government millions of dollars" by having people willingly divulge all sorts of intimate details about their beliefs, lives, interpersonal connections and behaviors. While watching this, I didn't know whether to laugh or erase my own Facebook profile.


That's the title given to this Youtube video of a December 2010 Jamaican TV news report, which has a pretty low view count considering the subject matter and what happens in it. This is interesting on a number of levels:

Might this article from 2006 - in which University of Alberta geologist Patrick Wu says the loss of polar ice volume will lead to increased global earthquake activity - qualify as a secular prophecy of sorts? Did Wu foretell, in a roundabout way, the disastrous, deadly, monstrous quakes that have hit Haiti, Chile, New Zealand and Japan? These four major quakes have all hit in the last 2 years - an unprecedented "close clustering" for events of this magnitude.

In the article, Wu is quoted as saying:
"What happens is the weight of this thick ice puts a lot of stress on the earth. The weight sort of suppresses the earthquakes, but when you melt the ice the earthquakes get triggered."
Now, I am fully aware that there is a robust and thriving skeptic community working hard to deny the prevailing wisdom / scientific consensus about Global Warming - especially as concerns the issue of "Anthropogenic Global Warming", the idea that human behaviors are to blame. Some in the parapolitical and conspiracy communities suspect that "AGW" is nothing more than an elaborate hoax perpetrated by genocidal elites, that it is nothing more or less than the laying of groundwork for the future implementation of horrific depopulation schemes to weed out the riffraff, the great unwashed, we "useless eaters". 

As the name of this blog implies, I am certainly not prepared to dismiss out of hand the idea that there are very powerful forces working behind the scenes that would dearly love to dump a bunch of herbicide all over the Great Human Garden. This does not mean, however, that I - or anyone else - should automatically subscribe to any theory that fits into the gestalt of that particular suspicion. That would simply be a variation on the age-old logical fallacy known as "confirmation bias", and any serious student of parapolitics needs to be ever-vigilant not to fall prey to its powerful lure.

In short, we should always, all of us, seek out the very best information possible. And currently, as far as my research has shown me, the Global Warming Skeptics community just isn't cutting the mustard. The majority of them are brain-whores (thought-stitutes?) whose work on the subject - mostly op-eds, hardly ever peer-reviewed - is bought and paid for by the very industry lobbies and corporations that either a) are major contributers to the problem, or b) depend on continued government inaction to maintain their profitability. 

And so, until someone comes along and convincingly debunks this excellent and thorough debunking of the Global Warming "debunkers", I'm going to stick with the eggheads on this one.


Whistleblowing WikiLeaks website founder Julian Assange has been nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian parliamentarian Snorre Valen, 24, a member of Norway's Socialist Left Party. In his words: "Wikileaks have contributed to the struggle for those very values globally, by exposing (among many other things) corruption, war crimes and torture - sometimes even conducted by allies of Norway. Most recently, by disclosing the economic arrangements by the presidential family in Tunisia, Wikileaks have made a small contribution to bringing down a 24-year-lasting dictatorship."

Being nominated for the prize poses a bit of a conundrum for Assange. He is currently holed up in the UK, waiting on an extradition appeal and trying to avoid being sent to Sweden to face "rape" charges - and we will go into greater detail about this bogus accusation in a later post. In any case, Canadian editorialist Paul Sullivan describes Assange's surreal situation thusly:
"In a strange twist of what can only be called fate, Assange could either be incarcerated in Scandinavia as the lowest of the low, a sex criminal, or exalted in Scandinavia as the highest of the high, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, alongside Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela."
Funny how things work out sometimes, isn't it?


The Astonishing Link between the JFK Assassination and the deposing of Nixon 
Conspiracies from Dallas to Watergate and Beyond
by Carl Oglesby

A few years back, a friend loaned me his copy of Carl Oglesby's The Yankee and Cowboy War, and after reading it I was stunned that I had previously neither read it nor even heard about it. I found it both moving and profoundly impressive. In his masterful dissection of the mid-70's American political milieu, Oglesby gives us nothing less than an absolutely convincing operating model of the forces clashing behind the scenes in post-World War II America, as well as a detailed diagnosis of exactly where and why things went terribly wrong. He presents valuable ideas that have found their way into the works of later authors, most notably Sidney Blumenthal, whose 1986 best-seller The Rise of the Counter-Establishment reads almost like a sequel.

I believe The Yankee Cowboy War is essential reading for anyone searching for honest answers about the origins of our current condition. Unfortunately, the book is long out of print. I also understand that most of you reading this are busy people who don't have time to read every worthy book that there is to read. Therefore, I have decided to use this space to publish my "reading notes", taken during my second reading, so that interested parties can get the gist of the book's main theses, the numerous topics it covers, as well as the individuals and events discussed in it.

I will be posting these reading notes periodically over the next few days. Obviously, this is a poor substitute for reading the book, itself, but it's a decent primer, and for the researcher in a hurry, it should do in a pinch. Watch for further installments, coming soon!


· Watergate and the JFK assassination were not isolated incidents, but linked parts of a secret war between two American Elites: the Yankees (Eastern Establishment) and the Cowboys (Sunbelt, New Money, Counter-Establishment).

· A hidden drama of coup and counter-coup, intrinsically linked conspiracies, inner oligarchic power sphere, invisible gov’t, above the law, beyond moral rule… a clandestine American state, embryonic police state.


A 21-year-old Virginia man who wrote an abbreviated version of the Fourth Amendment on his body and stripped to his shorts at an airport security screening area is demanding $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge. Aaron Tobey claims in a civil rights lawsuit that in December he was handcuffed and held for about 90 minutes by the Transportation Security Administration at the Richmond International Airport after he began removing his clothing to display on his chest a magic-marker protest of airport security measures.

"Is piracy really sending the entertainment industry broke or are the claimed hundreds of millions of dollars in annual losses and thousands of job cuts just a load of hogwash? The industry is constantly warning of an impending piracy apocalypse but continues to notch up healthy revenues and record box office takings. ... With the industry reeling after repeatedly failing to use the courts to force internet providers to penalise illegal downloaders, it is now trying to persuade the government to implement new legislation that would crack down on internet users. But critics say the industry isn't playing fair and should refresh its business model for the digital age instead of stretching the truth in order to scare the government into implementing knee-jerk legislation."

According to the White House Web site, Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein is current head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. That means he is in charge of “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.”  Troubling, then, that in an academic article he co-wrote in 2008 entitled Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures, that he blankly states that the government should engage in "cognitive infiltration" of "9/11 conspiracy groups", whatever that means. In practice, what Sunstein argues is that government agents should be assigned to infiltrate "groups" that propose alternative theories on historical events via “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine” those groups. Of course, the fact is that governments in every country and at every level have been doing exactly this all along. It's just that they've had the decency and good taste to at least try to keep their tactics and motivations hidden away from hoi polloi. So there you go, ladies and gentlemen. Cass Sunstein... a name to keep our eyes on!

If you're wondering where the name for this blog came from, check out this pretty fucking terrifying report written by Herr Doktor Henry Kissinger back in the day. It concerns global over-population, and how the "elites" of the world should go about handling the proliferation of we rabble, we Great Unwashed, we Useless Eaters. It's a very eye-opening read, folks. Forewarned may not really be forearmed in this case... but at least it's forewarned, right?


Scientific American has published an article by Michael Shermer that purports to educate the reader in a 10 point method to tell the difference between true and false conspiracy theories - in effect, a Conspiracy Theory Lie Detector. Considering the venue - SciAm usually being mired to the nostrils in a paralyzed, reflexive logical positivist posture - this is actually a pretty nifty little reference work.

I do disagree with some of Shermer's tips for sussing out a bogus CT - for instance, I wouldn't be so quick to denigrate the value of "connecting the dots".  Theories of all kinds - not just conspiracy theories - have to start somewhere. Often, an intuitive moment of pattern recognition can start the ball rolling and lead to very fruitful and intriguing results. Of course, connecting the dots is only the beginning. The real work comes afterwards.

In any case, here are Shermer's criteria. Do YOU see any other potential problems with his methodology?

  • Proof of the conspiracy supposedly emerges from a pattern of “connecting the dots” between events that need not be causally connected. When no evidence supports these connections except the allegation of the conspiracy or when the evidence fits equally well to other causal connections—or to randomness—the conspiracy theory is likely to be false.
  • The agents behind the pattern of the conspiracy would need nearly superhuman power to pull it off. People are usually not nearly so powerful as we think they are.
  • The conspiracy is complex, and its successful completion demands a large number of elements.
  • Similarly, the conspiracy involves large numbers of people who would all need to keep silent about their secrets. The more people involved, the less realistic it becomes.
  • The conspiracy encompasses a grand ambition for control over a nation, economy or political system. If it suggests world domination, the theory is even less likely to be true.
  • The conspiracy theory ratchets up from small events that might be true to much larger, much less probable events.
  • The conspiracy theory assigns portentous, sinister meanings to what are most likely innocuous, insignificant events.
  • The theory tends to commingle facts and speculations without distinguishing between the two and without assigning degrees of probability or of factuality.
  • The theorist is indiscriminately suspicious of all government agencies or private groups, which suggests an inability to nuance differences between true and false conspiracies.
  • The conspiracy theorist refuses to consider alternative explanations, rejecting all disconfirming evidence and blatantly seeking only confirmatory evidence to support what he or she has a priori determined to be the truth.


This is interesting. Apparently, a new bit of malware specifically designed to attack offline computer networks was recently discovered lurking in the operating system of a nuclear power plant in Iran. The apparent route of entry is via memory sticks. Deepening the mystery, this same virus has allegedly been discovered* at one of the nuclear power plants in Japan downed by the recent quake and tsunami.

*CORRECTION - A reader has pointed out to me that I have misread the article in question. The Stuxnet virus has NOT been found at any of the Japanese nuclear facilities affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Rather, it has been found on personal computers in Japan, and officials from that country have urged public utility workers not to use memory sticks for their work, for fear of spreading the virus to essential infrastructure-controlling programs. I apologize for the error and thank the eagle-eyed critics at the Rigorous Intuition message board for their assistance in this matter.
