“Shadowrunning for fun and profit”
Course Description: Basic introduction to cyberpunk economics and corporate shadow operations. Main themes will be “How to stay professional when surrounded by loser munchkins,” “How to keep the Irish mage in check,” “Heavy assault weapons and the child within,” and “How to dispose of useless female team members.”
Prerequisites: Knowledge of all NATO small arms, orbital weaponry, and Awakened critter combat a must. A working knowledge of “Comprehension through Pugilation” will also come in handy, as well as at least three essence points worth of cyberware (including at least three dice in initiative) or a grimore of spells that are actually worth a damn.
“And you’re a “long coat and dark suit Hong Kong Gunslinger Chic” kind of guy. What’s with the jeans and t-shirt? Where’re the nickel plated .45s and why are you carrying a fucking revolver instead? Where’s the samurai swords and the titanium core escrema sticks? What’s the deal with the chainsaw and baseball bats? I mean, you’re supposed to be all hard-edged Ellroy but now, you’re looking some kind of beatnick drifter. What’s the fucking deal?”
"I can't believe that!" said Alice.
"Can't you?" the queen said in a pitying tone. "Try again, draw a long breath, and shut your eyes."
Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said. "One can't believe impossible things."
"I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

The Auschwitz Files
The Bloodstone Report
The Gehlen Organization, once controlled by the U.S. Army but taken over in 1948 by the CIA, already had a very significant number of Germans who had previously been wanted for various perceived offenses in their ranks..
One of these highly-classified reports dealt with a subject that has been of very limited but intense interest in the years following the end of the European War in 1945.
This concerns the German Concentration Camp system in general and the claimed planned German extermination of all the Jews of Europe in specific.
Since the end of the war, an enormous body of literature, motion pictures, television commentaries and other manifestations of sociological and political propaganda have appeared that strongly and endlessly endorse the view that enormous numbers of Jews were either put to death by poison gas in German camps or shot in the hinterland of captured Soviet territory by German military or police units. It is one of the basic themes of this thesis that this alleged program of extermination was officially ordered by Adolf Hitler and willingly implemented by his government.
In 1948, these allegations were beginning to gain widespread circulation in the United States and it was to address them that the attached official report was prepared.
Initially, it was the contention of various Jewish groups that all of the various German prison camps contained gas chambers and crematoria designed to slaughter and dispose of as many Jews as could be found under German control. Eventually it was been decided after a great deal of research by German and American historians that while many inmates in these camps died during their confinement, the actual major death camp, complete with the huge gas chambers and even larger crematoria was located at the town of Auschwitz, a city of 10,000 in Silesia, Germany.
It was to this huge work camp complex, they have been led to believe, that an enormous number of Europe's Jews were sent, specifically to be gassed to death and their corpses burnt in enormous coke ovens.
The figures of the dead had a decided tendency to expand with the telling until by 1948, the number of six million dead was generally accepted as fact.
In the intervening years, the figure of six million has been affirmed and reaffirmed by Jewish, and many non-Jewish, writers, made the subject of many media dramas and is generally accepted by the public as factual. Because the complete records of the Concentration Camp system as well as specific records from the Auschwitz camp were seized by the Soviets in 1945, no scholar or researcher has been able to verify the claims of enormous slaughter in the Auschwitz complex. Secure in the knowledge that one could write whatever one wished with complete impunity, writers on the subject constantly enlarged and embellished their basic themes until the end results began to sound more and more like the productions of the Brothers Grimm.
In 1991, with the collapse of Communism in Russia, much hitherto secret material in former Soviet archives has become available to researchers and, at least in the case of the German Concentration Camp files, the subject of bitter dispute and anger on the part of Jewish groups that actively, and very aggressively, put forward and support the Auschwitz death camp story.
A significant number of scholars and historians who have investigated the allegations of enormous numbers of Jews exterminated have discovered that any writings on the subject must always conform to the six million figure. They also discover very quickly that this conformity is not only necessary but mandatory.
Any historian, no matter how reputable or exact in their research, who brings this end total into any kind of question discovers that they have run into an extraordinarily powerful entity that very effectively blocks any sort of balanced investigation into the accuracy of the figures of Jewish dead.
The Bloodstone report is presented here (a facsimile of the cover page can be found in the Appendix) along with an extensive compendium of figures relating to Auschwitz from 1940, when the camp opened as a prisoner of war establishment, until December of 1944 when the camp was being disbanded and its worker/inmates transferred to the relative safety of the west.
The statistics are taken directly from the official German records and are to be found on thousands of pages of microfilmed material that came from former Soviet Archives.
It should be noted that until recently, the Bloodstone report was highly classified and not available for research and the release by the Russians of the main Concentration Camp records in 1990 was termed a "serious error" by Jewish activist groups. The latter do not dispute the authenticity or accuracy of the files but question the motives and the wisdom of the Russian archivists who facilitated their public and unrestricted release.
It has been the stated belief of holocaust scholars that these records, genuine though they are, are subject to being "misunderstood" by anyone other than themselves and that the former Communist government of Russia had promised them these papers would never be made public.
The reasons for these angry and frightened objections will quickly become readily apparent to the reader as the Bloodstone Report unfolds before their eyes.
Objective truth, like grass, has a habit of pushing its way upwards towards the light of day, in obedience to the laws of God and very often in disobedience to the wishes of men.
Operation Bloodstone was initially created by the U.S. Department of State in 1948. Its progenitor was George F. Kennan, department expert on Soviet concerns.
Its stated purpose was to thwart Soviet expansionism but its actual mandate was to create dissension within the newly-acquired territories of the Soviet Union, dissension that specifically included the fostering of armed rebellions by various ethnic groups.
In order to facilitate this, Kennan's plan envisioned the use of any and all of the natural internal enemies of the Communist empire as well as the utilization of Stalin's former enemies such as ex-Gestapo, SD and Abwehr agents, non-German entities such as the Croatian Ustacha, members of the Hungarian Arrow Cross party and many others.
Immediately after the war, when there was more cooperation with Soviet Russia, members of these agencies were, at the insistence of the Soviets, arrested, tried and often executed for their activities in conquered Russian territory.
In the German arena, many SD and Gestapo personnel, some formerly operatives at the highest levels of government, were clandestinely recruited for work against the Soviet Union. This recruitment was partially aided by use of the numerous wanted lists prepared at the end of the war.
The Gehlen organization, run initially by the U.S. Army and later entirely by the CIA, was filled with such people. Other agencies recruited in their own fields of interest.
In one case, the U.S. Airforce sought and obtained the services of General Dr. Walter Schreiber, a Wehrmacht expert on communicable diseases to include bubonic plague and typhus. Schreiber, whose wartime activities in spreading these diseases among members of the Soviet military and civilian populations made him particularly desirable, was eventually exposed and had to leave America.
Bloodstone openly recruited anyone whom they felt would be of value, regardless of any existing allegations of war crimes by any entity, including Soviet Russia and the United States itself.
To an American President who had been subject to the same doses of wartime anti-German propaganda produced for the American public, Bloodstone officials found it necessary to explain, and in many cases, justify their actions.
The following report is specifically intended to address the wartime German concentration camp system in general and the stories of enormous, planned massacres of European Jews in specific.
At the time of its issuance in 1948, it was classified Top Secret, a classification that was subsequently downgraded to Classified in 1981 and then reclassified Top Secret in 1982.
This report is lengthy and often repetitious and, after an introduction, opens with a general overview of the German concentration camp system as it was perceived in 1948.

2 Mar 2009 @ 23:58 by a-d : thank you , Dear Vax,
to demand our right to examine ANYTHING we feel the need of MORE TRUTH to surface.
WHATEVER the Question,we should have the right to ASK it openly and ANSWERED with EVIDENCE that can be --and allowed to be-- examined by ALL and ANYone who so wants, Without this right, there will NEVER be any true justice to/for anyone!
It is time for any NPD's ( and from there on escalating in illness to full blown Psycho's)in ANY Socio-political group (hiding behind race, flag, ideology, religion etc) to grow up and heal themselves instead of continuing ---- (you know what ) with the rest of Humanity!...
Thanks for helping HuMankind in its struggle for JUSTICE to ALL... If Justice isn't for ALL, then indeed there is NO justice at all!... only
favoritism leading to endless wars genocides/murders etc etc.

The recent attempted defrocking of a Catholic Bishop on a charge of "Holocaust denial" brings to the fore once again the need to review the history of World War II in a properly detached fashion. A horrible truth is that more than 55 million people died in that war and the overwhelming majority of them were not Jews. That is the holocaust we must all remember. In addition to those deaths, World War II caused the virtual destruction of Western Europe, and gave newborn communism, the invention of Jewish politicians in Russia, its chance to prove it did not work. The victory went to the best and most determined killers, and various victims tell their stories in their own ways. That is a dubious privilege of all those who suffered greatly. It gave no one the right to a story that cannot be examined in the pursuit of truth and honest scholarship.
Yet, examining the official story of the Holocaust is a crime in Germany. It is not a crime in the United States as such, but one historian, Ernst Zundel, married to an American citizen, was summarily picked up in the United States, sent to Canada and imprisoned without conviction of any crime. He was then bundled up and sent to Germany, but moved covertly, not through normal legal processes of extradition.
In Germany Zundel has been tried in a German court and imprisoned, but he has not been allowed to present arguments in his own defense, and in fact his attorney has been imprisoned for attempting to enter such defenses in the court record. Zundel shares this fate with two others who have been sent to Germany from other European countries, and a move is now afoot to make Holocaust denial a crime throughout the European Community. If that is accomplished, the European Community will have prohibited any scholar to examine any part of the official Holocaust story. To do so will result in imprisonment with a trial in which the defendant can submit no evidence of the history explored and the findings made, regardless of how factually demonstrable they may be.

3 Mar 2009 @ 17:00 by a-d : u know,Vax, what is even
sadder or weirder?... that the deeper people/we are in this SAD state of mind, the less we, people realize that ALL Humans feel like this... only to different degrees ... like shades of the same color. What makes the difference is that some of us dare to face this beast of feeling of loneliness,abandonment, inadequacy etc in the eyes and acknowledge its cruel effect on us!... THAT makes it a little less potent as it were.
Humanity as a unified entity HAS to start being HONEST to ourselves about how we feel most of the time in a society we created so phony that it is destroying ALL Life on Earth!
I just got this in from a friend:
[ http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2009/03/02/ST2009030202011.html ]
and yes, it is very adequate to all we are discussing here now! : )
Let's just all face it: we, all Humanity, are out of fig leaves... been so for a loooong time!...

that article was written by an old fogey who obviously never faced the streets alone at night in a great big foreign city with no money and no where to go and just pure will driving one onwards...
The American dream is NOT based on Materialism as this dweeb says or rather has been conditioned to believe but the real American dream is freedom, liberty!
And he might be surprised as to how really TOUGH we are. Those of us NOT dependent on the wall street lie and the IMF, FED RES and BIS know how to live life without their newspapers...
Right up close and personal. And we will...

Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.
British officials, meanwhile, admit that the White House and US State Department staff were utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a formal dinner, as has been customary. They concede that Obama aides seemed unfamiliar with the expectations that surround a major visit by a British prime minister. …
Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president's surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.
A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy". …
The American source said: "Obama is overwhelmed. There is a zero sum tension between his ability to attend to the economic issues and his ability to be a proactive sculptor of the national security agenda.
"That was the gamble these guys made at the front end of this presidency and I think they're finding it a hard thing to do everything."
I'm not sure which is worse. At least if he meant to snub Brown, it would suggest a certain competence at this brand of diplomacy. Instead, we're told that the Obama White House and their staff are just a bunch of incompetents who got in over their heads.
Which is, of course, the point we made continuously over the last two years.

For more than 60 years scholars have believed that the Dead Sea Scrolls were the work of an ascetic Jewish sect called the Essenes, who lived in the 1st century in the mountains and recorded their religious observances on parchments.
Now a new theory challenging the broadly accepted history is sending shockwaves through the archaeological community, even leading to the arrest of one prominent scrolls scholar's son in the United States.
Rachel Elior, a professor of Jewish philosophy at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, claims in a forthcoming study that not only were the 930 scrolls written by Jewish priests living in Jerusalem but that the Essenes as a sect did not exist.
