hi guys just been catching up on the thread.Thanks for the interesting posts.
UNI thanks for the VigilantCitizen post about the ceremony.I have tried to follow the link,as well as a link from my email and from google,and i just get a 403 access forbidden from this server message.i was just wondering if the site was down or is it just my end.
here's an interesting comment from the last link you posted(i haven't checked it out any further so can't verify it personally).
'...Jessie J was featured very prominently in the show.
There has been lots of talk of her Illuminati connections. Just before she arrives on stage…and the only time this happens during the show…gold metal winners greet her arrival by putting their metals over one eye.
Just as the eyes are shown being covered the camera pans up to the pyramid shapes above the stadium.
She was on three times and I don’t remember which performance it was. I’m thinking it was the Queen segment, but my memory could be off.'
i avoided it all quite well really.the little bit of that closing ceremony that i did see involved three rolls royces or bentleys(top of the range) driving round in circles with some singer in the back squawking on that 'it's not about the money!'
That was the point i switched it off,probably grumbling something about obscene hypocrisy.
i liked the analysis from vigilant citizen(UNI's post),thought that covered the ritual aspect of it quite well.
There were speculations before the Olympics that the British government is using the games as an excuse to impose a police state in London that would be otherwise impossible; now that seems to have come true as the ‘un-free zones’ remain after the sports event.
British councils and police retain powers to single out public spaces and suspend certain freedoms, including handing out leaflets and protesting there that means one will be punished in those zones for doing a perfectly legal thing.
According to a map published on September 11 by Manifesto Club freedom campaign group, there are a dizzying 435 such zones in London that cover almost half of the whole area of the city, mostly in its central parts.
Citizens can be fined or prosecuted in the restricted zones, now also imposed on some other cities, for leafleting, walking a dog, using alcohol, just being there, and in London, for protesting.
There are 110 leafleting zones in London where you should have a license if you want to hand out leaflets -- that is you will not be free to even campaign for a human rights or relief cause unless the government sees it fit.
There are also 32 active “dispersal zones” as well as many inactive ones in the British capital.
In a dispersal zone you must leave the area if a police officer orders you to do so for a specified time, and you are not allowed to return to that area before the time designated by the officer or you face the consequences.
The euphemism of a dispersal zone in effect authorizes the security forces to impose a curfew in a region without openly announcing it for a particular group of people if the officers have “reasonable grounds for believing that [the group’s] presence or behavior has resulted, or is likely to result, in a member of the public being harassed, intimidated, alarmed or distressed.”
London is also decorated with a special restricted protest zone around the parliament buildings, where demonstrators, or even a single demonstrator, should also gain authorization if they want to hold a rally.
People are banned from making a speech without written permits, while the Westminster Council has approved a new bylaw that expands the ban to a larger area in the vicinity of the parliament square.
The five restriction zones provide the government with greater room to further squeeze civil liberties as the powers to implement them are open-ended, meaning officers can decide on where and how to use them at their own discretion, effectively giving them the power to make law in the restricted areas.
The government can also crack down on the undesirables that possibly include certain race groups or people with certain beliefs.
Officials made it clear before the Olympics that in the newly-introduced “exclusion zones” protesters face police with enhanced powers, including the right to use force to enter private properties and seize political posters.
There were fears that London will follow suit on other Olympic hosts, including Athens, which did not remove the new restrictions after the games.
Now such fears have partly materialized and the government can easily justify the continuation of the draconian measures, saying Britain faces threats from unwanted elements lurked inside its own cities and increasingly bigger surveillance would be needed to predict and contain such threats.
I didn't watch any of the Paralympics. I'm only three minutes into the vid in the following link. Is this the way the closing ceremony was presented on the TV? Really? Aren't people thinking WTF? (edit: I'm crap)
(Also check out that 'magical sign, from an Icelandic grimoire' that was used! See here:http://illuminatiwatcher.com/?p=3618)
Yes, I watched it, although I kept my eye off it a few times because Coldplay performed for what felt like over an hour! It just went on and on. It was more like a Coldplay concert than a closing ceremony for the Paralympics.
I hate Coldplay; Their music is bland, boring, RadioHead-wannabee CRAP. Vastly over-rated music for deaf people.
Actually, one thing I did notice from that ceremony... Coldplay and Rihanna can't sing! I mean... they REALLY can't sing - especially Rihanna. Considering she's recorded about two albums in the last 18 months or so and toured the world virtually non-stop for the last 3 or so years, you would've thought her voice would've been strong and used to live performance? She also picked a song that she can't even sing properly on the studio-version. Naah... you can either sing or you can't, irrespective of whether you've been exercising your voice regularly or not - you either have it or you don't.
I watched it on Channel 4. The video in your post is from a different source - meaning it had different commentators.
I noticed in the link you posted, there was a picture of this:
The writer of the article says it: " looks like the Green Man with its vegetative growth symbolizing Spring. It also has the serpent double-helix thing coming out of its mouth, so perhaps its a mixed form of serpent-Pagan worship? Who knows."
That figure actually came up whilst Coldplay were 'performing'. The commentators on Channel 4 described it as (and this is word-for-word), "The Sun King"
