Tsarion fan Actress Sean Young of "Blade Runner" fame on Red Ice Radio - "Awakening to the Conspiracy"



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lklwqmmTPyc

Damn ! I was expecting a boring 'Charlie-I've-Seen-Your-Hernia' Alex Jones / Charlie Sheen type of kiss-ass retarded interview but this was actually quite good. She really knows her stuff. She's a fan of Michael Tsarion, G Edward Griffin, Freeman, Santos Bonacci, John Lash & even Judy Wood ! She even told Israel to go fuck-off and named the Jew or at least admitted that her dad used to name the Jew. She talks a mile a minute and should really start her own show because she really knows all about the half-truth / conspiracy movement. No wonder she's not popular in Holy-wood and stories keep coming out about how she's a nut-case. One of Henrik's growing list of excellent interviews.

news flash ! it has now been confirmed: alex jones did indeed see charlie sheen's hernia:

Blade Runner - TEARS IN RAIN [Hi-Res Video]





"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. [pause] Time to die."

Tears In Rain is the final monologue of the Replicant Roy Batty in the movie Blade Runner. It is much quoted[1] and has been described as "perhaps the most moving death soliloquy in cinematic history".[2] The final form of the speech was improvised by Rutger Hauer, the actor who delivers it


Tannhauser Gate
Tannhauser Gate, Tannhäuser Gate and Tanhauser Gate are variant spellings of this unexplained placename which is used only once in this monologue. The name probably derives from Richard Wagner's operatic adaption of the legend of the medieval German knight and poet Tannhäuser.[14] Joanne Taylor, in an article discussing film noir and its epistemology, remarks on the relation between Wagner's opera and Batty's reference, and suggests that Batty aligns himself with Wagner's Tannhauser, a character who has fallen from grace with men and with God. Both, she claims, are characters whose fate is beyond their own control

I agree Neg. Her interview with Henrick was good, and better than I expected. I disagree that she really knows her stuff. She was familiar with the personalities and concepts in our alternative world, but she didn't seem to have a "unified theory".

She seemed more on my level; still trying to figure out who or what is at the tippy-top. I do always enjoy the small insights celebrities have. They actually worked in the one industry saturated with occult and conspiracy more than any industry except perhaps the military or high finance industries.

She did great for a Hollywood actress, way better than Sheen. The litmus test though is and always will be the holohoax, which very few Jewlywood employees have the guts to be truthful about, since they sense automatically that it's the main pillar of the JWO. Yet, she expressed admiration for Michael Tsarion who does expose the holohoax, at least on his website if not in his talks.

Unified theory ? You must be jesting. No one agrees with anyone else beyond the fatboy-jones and michael-rivero gates don't you know that already? There is no such thing as a unified front in the half-truth movement unless you want to call Alex Jones and gatekeepers like that a unified front.

The tippy-top is easy to figure out, just follow the money, or more specifically follow who has the legal monopoly on counterfeiting money. What's harder to figure out is how all the other people in the hierarchy are convinced to do the bidding of such obvious thieves, year after year, decade after decade, war after war, century after century.

Maybe it's because some form of parastism has a place we accept and that actually benefits us. I used to love Sean Young's lovely face...guess I still do.

I don't know about 'benefiting' us. Fitting our beneficience compared to what? How is a debilitating disease necessary if you can avoid it once-&-for-all? Dark is necessary for light, pain for pleasure if only for something to contrast what fits our beneficience with that which does not. How does a person become expanded, cultured & civilized ? By sticking to principle and not compromising. To have integrity is not to be extreme and neurotic, it is temperance and equilibrium. It's only when surrounded by those who compromise that communication suffers and those on the lower vibration level due to compromise label the higher vibrating person. Parasites are not higher vibrating beings, they are just experts at turning higher vibrating persons into lower vibrating, disintegrating ones, easier to take advantage of, easier to feed on.

As an old hippie used to say:

Quote:If nothing is holding us down to the physical plane, then what's holding us ? Why are we attached to structures? Why do we stick to our vibration level? Why do we fear change?

To answer these questions, let's start at the top once again. There are lots of words for how it feels to be completely expanded: total awareness, completeness, freedom, love, ecstasy, certainty, stability, supreme intelligence, compassion. I think it will be least vague in this instance to discuss our interactions in terms of stability.

Absolute stability exists naturally at the space level, because all relationships are persistent to the degree that the beings involved have the same expansion.

But on the more contracted levels, where there is by definition some withdrawal of awareness, we accordingly have less control over how long the stable condition lasts. And when we are relating to beings whose vibrations are higher or lower than ours, we feel unstable and uncertain.

In an unstable relationship, we have basically two ways to go, regardless of the subtleties of the changes: one way is towards stability, reaching a common level of vibration; the other way is towards disintegration, getting so far apart in vibrations that we are no longer aware of each other at all. Since we are uncomfortable in the presence of vibrations higher or lower than our own, we tend to make certain 'natural' responses. If the other person is lower, we will generally try to get him up to our level, to help him and cheer him up. But if the other person is higher, we will often, at first, try to bring him down and get him to lower his vibrations. Note that when you try to help someone you are working against his natural, perhaps unconscious effort to bring you down. The lower vibrating person (and this could be any of us depending on the circumstance) will appear to be draining the energy of the higher person, often with the best moral and social motives. This effort can take the form of exaggerated praise, sly pokes disguised in polite words, pleading for help with problems, showing fear and depression, freaking out, starting an argument, quoting better authorities, and a thousand other forms, all the way down to putting the higher person in prison or killing him.

On the other end, if you are faced with such behavior, the remedy is to keep on outflowing love, to have no resistance in your mind. The lower vibrating person may reach farther and farther to bring you down, but when he finds you will not come down, when he senses that you have no internal resistance to him, he will have to rise to your vibration level to feel stable and comfortable, it is too painful to stay where is. And he will rise, unless of course he goes the other way, and disintegrates from the relationship. You are not, however, obliged to wait him out: if you sense that he is not going to do anything but try to bring you down, you are free to effect the disintegration when you choose. In current language, just split. Don't dwell on it, and don't feel guilty about it. It's in the natural order of things.

If you are going to take psychedelics or meditate and open yourself to communication with beings on higher levels, you should be aware of the implications of these automatic interactions between vibration levels. You are likely to feel overwhelmed, driven, compelled, degraded, full of psychic terror (the bummer) until you drop your resistance, expand in love, and move up to the vibration of the higher beings. They have no intention to scare you or test you, it's your own density that is making you have those feelings.

Anything that really frightens you may contain a clue to enlightenment. It may indicate to you how deeply you are attached to structure, whether mental, physical, or social. Attachment and resistance are appearances with the same root: when you resist by pulling away your awareness, the emotion is one of fear, and the contraction is experienced as a pull like magnetism or gravity; that is, attachment.

That is why we often fear to open our minds to more exalted spiritual beings. We think fear is a signal to withdraw, when in fact it is a sign we are already withdrawing too much.

When we are afraid to see what is higher, we may then try to buy a feeling of safety or power by keeping our attention on what is lower. This process takes many forms in human life.

Charity conceived as an impulse towards those lower than ourselves often has unhappy results. Many of our impulsive feelings have their source in erroneous assumptions about the status of other people. There is nothing wrong with feelings--the feelings on the space level are incredibly rich. But it is wise to pay attention to where our feelings are coming from, and where they are leading us. We many be seduced by a feeling of freedom, power, or amusement by relating to those we think are weaker; or we may recoil from the fear and depression we feel in the presence of those we consider stronger.

I wasn't talking about that yachts and Saint-Tropez buttnaked orgies with Silvio Berlusconi's jockstrap stuff. The point is you can't really enjoy something unless you earn it. You're assuming that the work of the 'Dark Side' is somehow 'easy.' The Dark Side would not have anything worth a shit to loot & own & use if not for productive people willing to produce EVERTHING they enjoy, from the expensive food they eat to the thousand dollar a night hookers they bang more impotently than a common laborer to the Ferraris and Mercedes and whatever the fuck else they drive to the Jets they travel in. All that is 'productive work' that cannot be done by anyone who is more than 40% on the dark side of the soul. Why? Because productive work benefits all & beneficience is morality and the definition of the morally 'good.'

In fact, they HAVE to make it benefit all because a whole ARMY of millions of productive workers are needed simply to produce the values delivered to you and me by even the computers we are using to just communicate. People will not work without the fruits of their labor. Professional thieving is taking fruit with such stealth & cleverness that you can fool yourself that you have 'earned it' but the fact remains that you have not increased the sum of production but sucked off it. Therefore, quite high up the ladder too you can find guys like Henry Ford and others who refuse to sell-out but expose the parasites. This is because they see far more benefit in being moral than being amoral or immoral both for themselves and for everyone else. A real productive person would not even get to where he is if he wasn't already an expert at creating WIN-WIN situations everywhere he went.

Who are the Henry Fords of today ? Steve Jobs? He seemed to be on the right track but he's dead. Steve Wozniak, his original partner is a fan of conspiracy radio & was on with Charles Giuliani back in his RBN days in 2007

Hey did you read that hippy quotation from "Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment" posted earlier ? That might give you a hint or two as to where the origin of evil might be, in your 'contractions or expansions.'

"Often the vices that we have were once virtues taken to extremes" - Michael Tsarion

For example: parents who try to protect their kids. Wanting to protect your kids is a virtue but taken to an extreme, it becomes over-protection and therefore, a vice & through that imbalance & intemperance your kids end up handicapped and unable to deal with reality which isn't going away and which they have to deal with and conquer in whatever small ways if they are to enjoy any transient extended period of spiritual/physical well-being.

The same impulse of wanting to protect your kids can get you to teach you kids to physically protect themselves, in itself a virtue, but taken to an extreme by some dickwad who encourages his kid to kick ass on other kids, it can turn that kid into the neighborhood bully and eventually miserable since even if he doesn't end up a thug on the fast-track to prison, those he once bullied will ostracize and pay him back in later life when their help and co-operation could have benefited him to a large degree.

Therefore, intemperance is what createes 'evil' not refusal to compromise. They are not the same thing and should never be confused. You DO NOT temper yourself by compromise, you temper yourself by balancing out all your NON-COMPROMISED principles in a way that provides INTEGRATION. When you achieve a high degree of INTEGRATION, people point at you and say:

he is a man or woman of INTEGRITY, you know like Neal Peart wrote for Rush:






For the Spirit ever lingers
Undemanding contact in your happy solitude


what is the spirit, you ask and what in the fuck does it want with you while it's lingering there 'undemanding contact' ? LOL

Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free


what is this 'gift beyond price' ?

then

But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity


Why is 'integrity' an illusion ? What makes it an illusion ? What is the catalyst that DIS-INTEGRATES ?

Because compromise is confused with temperance.

Compromise is when you do something you consider morally weak and cowardly and even quite wrong but you RATIONALIZE IT (make up little lies for yourself) and do it anyway to avoid a worse consequence.

Temperance is when you use tact to keep to your principles no matter what happenes and therefore minimize the damage to yourself & maximize the damage to your enemy, dis-integration, with the least energy expended possible.

You see the difference?

One is 'If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.' or more precisely 'If you can't beat 'em, brown-nose them' LOL

and the other is

'If you can't beat them, become the biggest pain in their ass you can in the least personally damaging way you can manage" and have a coke and a smile doing it and keep working on it until you become a Jedi Master, until you become James Bond. They used to call Jedi Masters GENTLEMEN in the old days before the rot set in. Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes, the original Sean Connery James Bond, etc . Those guys are ever popular because they teach the heroic ideal of temperance as opposed to compromise, a martial art few people ever masterIcon_biggrin

RE: Tsarion fan Actress Sean Young of Blade Runner fame on Red Ice Radio
I'm just not gonna right now take the time to read allll the words you post, Neg. The jews who have hold over so much, though being a very small percentage, aspire(?) and ascend to talents we all enjoy. Remember how they were supposed to have (through Tavistock, etc.) created rock and roll?

They also, of course, take over every damned "cause" they see -- NOT that each of these causes is "bad." Just that they like control. We are perhaps more evolved but also more lazy. But ultimately, if you believe in higher states of evolution, you pretty much have a god. And that has to be acknowledged before further discussion.

Yes, R.R., I was aware of that sensitive information (How was Michael Tsarion Australian tour summer camp by the way? I heard you had front row tickets to hear your idol speak about 'the end of evil as we know it' LOL )

We did a whole thread on Wozniak's potential conspiracy fandom a while back on another forum in another galaxy. Apparently geeky-woz is a low level mason. It's right in his wiki profile so he's not trying to hide it like a lot of others. He probably gave the info out to prevent people finding out & accusing him of being a conniving freemasonic bastard. He hasn't had much influence at Apple or anywhere else for a long time.

Stevie Jobs never admitted to being a mason's gay-son or anything else but you always wonder if any of these companies were really rags to riches success stories when you see the spectacle of suck-cess of the black lagoon Billy-Bob Gates going around pushing vaccines and globalism everywhere. I think Johnny Apple Seed was probably a genuine entrepreneurial success but Gates was funded as their genetically inferior co-option which it almost completely became until the i-pods & i-phones & i-pads came out to open a can of whup-ass of magnifique proportions in Willy boy's snotty bespectacled face. Jobs dropped lots of LSD & ate his own snot, Gates dropped globalist dingleberries & sobered himself up with dem wonda-ful wold of wack-scenes. Bravo Willy, dance fever is waiting for your disco shoes when yo mastahs tell you to boogie to their loony toons.

Woz was actually on Charles Giuliani's show back when Charlie-Mac-&-Cheese was mainstream enough in the half-truth movement to get that decrepit old deep-cover communist gatekeeper Noam Chomsky on his show. I think I have the Woz shows saved on my other computer but I couldn't find them on this here absurd outer-net.


Quote:Factories: Ford Highland Park Plant

[Image: 74964.jpg]
One day's production at the Highland Park Plant, August, 1913


http://www.autotraderclassics.com/car-article/Old+Factories%3A+Ford+Highland+Park+Plant-74957.xhtml

by Joe Babiasz

Ford's ultimate automotive factory.

Photos by Mike Skinner, NAHC, and Ford.


In today’s climate, it’s hard to imagine an automotive company needing to build a much larger assembly plant only two years after building a first, in order to accommodate huge public demand. That was the situation Henry Ford faced in 1906 while building cars at his Piquette Street plant. Ford realized he needed a much larger facility and decided to purchase 58 acres of land in suburban Highland Park, Michigan for his new assembly plant. His vision was to build a world-class factory using the latest architectural technologies.

Architect Albert Kahn was tapped to design Ford’s new assembly plant. Several years earlier, Kahn had designed Packard’s East Grand Boulevard assembly plant, considered to be the most modern facility in the world. Using what he learned from his Packard experience, Kahn designed Ford’s new factory. The facility, later known as the Crystal Palace because of the 50,000 square feet of rooftop glass, became the ultimate automotive factory.

The Highland Park plant was to be built on the corner of Woodward Avenue and Manchester Avenue in the sleepy hamlet of Highland Park, a village located within the city limits of Detroit. The location, just a few miles from his Piquette Street plant, was picked primarily because it bordered three major rail lines, vital at the time to the automobile business.

Work on the Highland Park plant began in early 1909. The original design called for a main office, powerhouse, engineering building, and a four-story assembly plant located behind those buildings. By January 1, 1910, the 75 by 865-foot, four-story building was ready to pump out Model Ts. Over the next several years, an L-shaped, four-story building was erected well behind the main factory creating a U-shaped facility. A one-story machine shop was built between the two buildings. In the middle of the machine shop, an 880 by 57-foot crane-way ran north to south, transporting materials from one section of the plant to another. Additional floor conveyors and chains powered by steam ran along the facility, bringing heavy parts from the foundry to the work areas. The north side of the building included a foundry, heat-treating area, and an engine room. The southeast portion of the plant included a sawmill and several shipping platforms.

Ford began producing Model Ts at Highland Park on January 1, 1910 using the traditional station build process, the same as used at the Piquette Street facility. It placed unfinished cars in a stationary location while teams of workers moved from car to car, assembling components brought to them by an employee pushing a hand-truck full of parts. Henry realized that to keep up with customer demand he needed to improve efficiency. He had been working to perfect the assembly line process for quite some time and was determined to vastly improve productivity by using this new method, but additional floor space was needed.

By July 1911, ground was broken for two six-story buildings east of the existing plant. Included in the buildings was a six-story-high crane-way that traversed the entire length of the building. Ford was now preparing for mass production, but needed to try out his idea. The assembly line process was first tested on the flywheel magneto assembly. Up until now, one person assembled a complete magneto, producing 35 to 40 per day. Ford then broke down the process into 29 separate operations, with 14 workers assembling only a small portion of each magneto. Those 14 workers were able to produce 1,335 magnetos per day, averaging 95 magnetos per person, even though the workday was reduced from nine to eight hours.

In addition to the added floor space, the entire facility needed to be updated to accommodate parts coming to cars as they moved down the assembly line. No longer would a worker push a hand-truck and keep up with the line speed. Overhead conveyers were built, bringing everything from gas tanks to wheels directly into the assembly area for the person responsible for installing that part. Body painting and assembly, interior assembly, and other miscellaneous part production stations were located on the second, third, and fourth floors. Chassis assembly was on the first floor. When mass production was ready to be introduced in April 1914, the twin final assembly lines were moved from the early four-story buildings to the six-story buildings on Manchester Ave. And at that time, the final line was doubled in length to 327 feet.

Ford’s mass production eventually revolutionized the entire automobile industry. In 1908, Ford’s Piquette plant used 450 workers to produce 10,607 vehicles. By 1921, 32,679 workers at Highland Park produced 933,720 vehicles. Ford’s market share rose from 9.4 percent in 1908 to 48 percent by 1914.

Prior to Ford’s move to Highland Park, the village’s population was 425 people. By the end of 1910 with the plant up and running, population grew to 4,120 and by the end of 1914–just nine months after Henry’s assembly line process was in full swing–Highland Park had a population of 27,170. While it was a boom for Highland Park, housing eventually became an issue with people pouring in to work at Ford. Many rented rooms shared with other workers, and few could afford to purchase a house.

During this time, immigrants were flooding into Detroit in an effort to seek the American dream. Many of these hard-working people wound up at Ford’s Highland Park facility. By 1914, nearly three-quarters of the workers were foreign born and of those, 50 percent were either from southern or eastern Europe. Their average age was 28 years old, and two percent of Ford employees were women.

While Ford’s workers were hard working, imagine the communication problems dealing with the many languages. How does someone instruct an employee about his or her job when the worker has no idea what you are saying? To resolve this issue, Ford developed an English school. Anyone not able to speak English was required to attend the school after work. Failure to do so would result in dismissal. Ford also saw the need to teach manners and set up schools to teach the basics of proper etiquette. The schools gave instructions on the proper use of utensils and the basics of being neat and clean.

A problem for Ford during the early years was the extremely high employee turnover rate. Employees worked a minimum of nine hours per day for about $2.00 a day, and many chose to look for work elsewhere. Ford decided to use money as a tool in reducing turnover–and more importantly, to allow employees to become customers of Ford products. In 1914 he increased pay to $5.00 per day while at the same time reducing the workday from nine to eight hours. In addition to the extra spending money, his new pay scale allowed his workers to purchase a new Model T with the equivalent of only four months’ pay. His workers now became buyers, and it was a win/win for everyone. Another perk for workers was an on-site safety and health department, hospital, drug store, butcher shop, grocery store, shoe store, and a trade school for boys as well as two factory apprentice schools for adults.

Eventually the plant grew to almost three million square feet of floor space. During its existence, Highland Park would produce over 15 million Model Ts, with Ford employing over 50,000 people. With so many people working there, Ford staggered quitting times so that the streets would not become overcrowded at the end of a shift. Because of plant efficiencies, the price of a Model T dropped from $950 in 1909 to $290 in 1925. On May 26, 1927, the 15 millionth Model T was built. Then on May 31, the last Model T rolled off the assembly line at Highland Park. Henry was ready to build his new Model A at the new Rouge River facility.

Today, portions of the Highland Park facility are still intact. The powerhouse, main office, and the original four-story building are gone. These days it is Model T Plaza, a strip mall. The second four-story building is still standing, as well as the two six-story buildings and a secondary office building. Ford Motor Company, while it doesn’t own the facility, continues to lease part of the building for storage. Today, Henry’s Highland Park plant continues to have a Ford presence that has lasted for nearly 100 years.

At the time, Henry Ford–with little education–became the world’s wealthiest person. Looking back, he was a true visionary, and he worked tirelessly to stay ahead of the competition.
