    What should we do with unpleasant circumstances? Paul says we're to respond in a way that is totally opposite to human nature. We are to face them obediently, willingly, sincerely, eagerly, diligently, readily, and with cheerfulness. It's amazing what can happen when we change our perspective.

    FOOD THE ULTIMATE WEAPON

    The Great Purge or the Great Terror (Russian: Большой террор] was a campaign of political repression in the Soviet Union which occurred from 1936 to 1938. It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and government officials, repression of kulak (wealthy landlords) and the Red Army leadership, widespread police surveillance, suspicion of saboteurs, counter-revolutionaries, imprisonment, and arbitrary executions. Historians estimate the total number of deaths due to Stalinist repression in 1937–38 to be between 680.000 and 1,200,000.

    In the Western world, Robert Conquest's 1968 book The Great Terror popularized that phrase. Conquest's title was in turn an allusion to the period called the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution (French: la Terreur, and, from June to July 1794, la Grande Terreur, the Great Terror).

    Introduction

    Excerpt of NKVD Order No. 00447

    A list from the Great Purge signed by Stalin, Molotov, Kaganovich, Voroshilov, Mikoyan, and Chubar.

    The term "repression" was officially used to describe the prosecution of people considered counter-revolutionaries and enemies of the people by the leader of the Soviet Union at the time, Joseph Stalin. Historians debate the causes of the purge, such as Stalin's paranoia, or his desire to remove dissenters from the Communist Party or to consolidate his authority. The purges began in the Red Army, and the techniques developed there were quickly adapted to purges in other sectors. Most public attention was focused on the purge of certain parts of the leadership of the Communist Party, as well as of government bureaucrats and leaders of the armed forces, most of whom were Party members. The campaigns also affected many other categories of the society: intelligentsia, peasants and especially those branded as "too rich for a peasant" (kulaks), and professionals. A series of NKVD operations affected a number of national minorities, accused of being "fifth column" communities. A number of purges were officially explained as an elimination of the possibilities of sabotage and espionage, by the Polish Military Organisation and, consequently, many victims of the purge were ordinary Soviet citizens of Polish origin.

    According to Nikita Khrushchev's 1956 speech, "On the Cult of Personality and Its Consequences", and historian Robert Conquest, a great number of accusations, notably those presented at the Moscow show trials, were based on forced confessions, often obtained through torture, and on loose interpretations of Article 58 of the RSFSR Penal Code, which dealt with counter-revolutionary crimes. Due legal process, as defined by Soviet law in force at the time, was often largely replaced with summary proceedings by NKVD troikas.

    Hundreds of thousands of victims were accused of various political crimes (espionage, wrecking, sabotage, anti-Soviet agitation, conspiracies to prepare uprisings and coups); they were quickly executed by shooting, or sent to the Gulag labor camps. Many died at the penal labor camps of starvation, disease, exposure, and overwork. Other methods of dispatching victims were used on an experimental basis. In Moscow, the use of gas vans used to kill the victims during their transportation to the Butovo firing range was documented.

    The Great Purge began under NKVD chief Genrikh Yagoda, but reached its peak between September 1936 and August 1938 under the leadership of Nikolai Yezhov, hence the name Yezhovshchina. The campaigns were carried out according to the general line, often by direct orders of the Party Politburo headed by Stalin.

    Mission: Impossible is an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin.


    The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996.


    The series follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organizations and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned, private missions on behalf of its members.

    The identities of the higher echelons of the organization that oversees the IMF are never revealed. Only rare cryptic bits of information are ever provided during the life of the series, such as in the third season mission "Nicole", where the IMF leader states that his instructions come from "Division Seven". In the 1980s revival, it is suggested the IMF is an independent agency of the United States government.

    This is a definitive study in liberal Utopia. The police and the military have all the guns. You see what the loss of God given rights lead to debauchery. This is what is planned for you lives as people are suckered into the NWO. Learn the lessons well. It is also a study of the karmic effects of war. As Col. Suga conquers with his army so the time will come where he will be conquered. So in effect his use of force is directly applied to his own people and country. The loss of his own wife and children the personal blow. 

    Lieutenant Nekata attempts to force her to sign a confession. Pay particular attention to how the state operates. It is common place. Will you? Would you? Also remember this is very tame compared to the reality. The brutality and sadistic abuse was far worse. Do you still think the police and the military should have total power and control and be the only part of society bearing arms? You'll learn quickly and beg for salvation or death.

    Three Came Home is a 1950 American post-war film directed by Jean Negulesco, based on the memoirs of the same name by writer Agnes Newton Keith. It depicts Keith's life in North Borneo in the period immediately before the Japanese invasion in 1942, and her subsequent internment and suffering, separated from her husband Harry, and with a young son to care for. Keith was initially interned at Berhala Island near Sandakan, North Borneo (today's Sabah) but spent most of her captivity at Batu Lintang camp at Kuching, Sarawak. The camp was liberated in September 1945.


    Plot

    American-born Agnes Keith (Colbert) and her British husband Harry Keith (Patric Knowles) live a comfortable colonial life in North Borneo with their young son George in the 1930s. Keith is the only American in Sandakan.


    Borneo was strategically important to Japan as it is located on the main sea routes between Java, Sumatra, Malaya and Celebes. Control of these routes was vital to securing the territory. Japan needed an assured supply, particularly of oil, in order to achieve its long-term goal of becoming the major power in the Pacific region.


    Worried about the rumours surrounding Japanese invasion in 1941, Harry suggests that Agnes move back to the United States along with George. Agnes refuses and she and George remain.

    The Imperial Japanese Army invade Borneo and intern the small British community in a camp on Pulau Berhala island off Sandakan. Later they are sent to the notorious Batu Lintang camp near Kuching, Sarawak,where the men and women are separated.


    During the Japanese invasion of Sandakan, Agnes has a miscarriage.

    These camps are under the charge of Colonel Suga (Sessue Hayakawa). Col. Suga is fluent in English and has read a book on Borneo written by Mrs. Keith. He treats Agnes well.

    When Col. Suga visits Agnes at Batu Lintang camp and asks her to autograph a copy of her book as she had agreed to back in the earlier camp. Agnes signs the book with a personal message.

    The camp guards are cruel and oppressive, as seen when they shoot down a group of Australian men who try to cross the wire fencing during a bit of flirtation with the women.


    One night a Japanese guard attacks Agnes in an attempted rape when she runs outside in the night to bring in the washing being blown around in the strong winds. Later she complains to Col. Suga, who asks Lieutenant Nekata to investigate. Unfortunately Agnes is not able to identify her assailant as it was too dark. Nekata insists she identify the assailant by presenting her with a written statement for her to sign. She refuses to do so as she is aware that to make an unsubstantiated accusation against any Japanese soldier is punishable by death. In an effort to get her to sign the statement while Col. Suga is away she is tortured by Nekata's junior officers (after he has left the room, to avoid being a witness to the beating) and threatened with further torture if she says anything to anyone. In great pain she tries to keep her injuries from her fellow captives. Eventually she agrees to withdraw her allegation.


    In September 1945 Japan surrenders and Agnes learns from Col. Suga that he has lost all his family at the end of the war. They used to live in Tokyo but his wife was so fearful that they moved to Hiroshima where she thought they would be safer.

    Col. Suga is arrested by Australian soldiers and the Keith family finally reunites.

    Gold Trails and Ghost Towns is a historical documentary show first produced for Canadian syndication, created and produced by television station CHBC-TV in Kelowna, British Columbia and hosted by Mike Roberts with historian storyteller Bill Barlee. The show was filmed in a studio which resembled an old trapper's cabin. Mike and Bill discussed history of the old West by prospectors around 1900 in British Columbia.

    5 Treasure Story From Lardeau Country - C.P.R. lineman Walter Clough is one of the key figures in the story of "The Lost Mortar & Pestle Mine" - a mine that yielded incredibly high-grade gold ore.

    Lardeau, originally spelled Lardo, is an unincorporated community and former mining town near the north end of Kootenay Lake in the West Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The centre of a district known as the Lardeau mines, and as the Lardeau Country, Lardeau once had ambitions of becoming much larger, like Trout Lake City nearby on the lake of the same name, which forms a pass through to Galena Bay on Upper Arrow Lake, through which planned railways were to have turned Trout Lake and Lardeau into the great cities they were dreamed of becoming. Lardeau today is a mixed farming and logging community.

    Nikola Tesla's 5 Lost Inventions That Threatened The Global Elite

    (anonhq.com) Most great inventions fundamentally change the society in which they exist. Since the people at the top of the social structure have more to gain by reinforcing the status quo, they suppress revolutionary technologies favorable to the world but dangerous to their existence.

    Engineering genius Nikola Tesla was no exception. Here are some of those technologies, ‘they’ don’t want you to know about Nikola Tesla. (Video below as well!)

    Death Ray

    Nikola Tesla claimed to have invented a “death beam” which he called Teleforce in the 1930s. The device was capable of generating an intense targeted beam of energy “that could be used to dispose of enemy warplanes, foreign armies, or anything else you’d rather didn’t exist”.

    The so-called “death ray” was never constructed because he believed it would become too easy for counties to destroy each other. Tesla proposed that a nation could “destroy anything approaching within 200 miles… [and] will provide a wall of power” in order to “make any country, large or small, impregnable against armies, airplanes, and other means for attack”. He said that efforts had been made to steal the invention. His room had been entered and his papers had been scrutinized, but the thieves, or spies, left empty-handed.

    Tesla’s Oscillator

    In 1898, Tesla claimed he had built and deployed a small oscillating device that, when attached to his office and operating, nearly shook down the building and everything around it. In other words, the device could allegedly simulate earthquakes. Realizing the potential terrors such a device could create, “Tesla said he took a hammer to the oscillator to disable it, instructing his employees to claim ignorance to the cause of the tremors if asked”. Some theorists believe the government continues to use Tesla’s research in places like the HAARP facility in Alaska.

    Free Electricity System

    With funding from JP Morgan, Tesla designed and built Wardenclyffe Tower, a gigantic wireless transmission station, in New York in 1901-1902. Morgan thought the Wardenclyffe Tower could provide wireless communication across the world. However, Tesla had other plans.

    Tesla intended to transmit messages, telephony and even facsimile images across the Atlantic to England and to ships at sea based on his theories of using the Earth to conduct the signals. If the project worked, anyone could have electricity by simply sticking a rode into the ground. Unfortunately, free electricity is not profitable. And this system could be incredibly dangerous for the global elite because it could profoundly change the energy industry. Imagine how different the world would be if society didn’t need oil and coal to function? Could the great world powers maintain control? Morgan refused to fund the changes. The project was abandoned in 1906 and never became operational.


    The Flying Saucer

    In 1911, Nikola Tesla told The New York Herald that he was working on an anti gravity “flying machine”.

    “My flying machine will have neither wings nor propellers. You might see it on the ground and you would never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will through the air in any direction with perfect safety, at higher speeds than have yet been reached, regardless of weather and oblivious of “holes in the air” or downward currents. It will ascend in such currents if desired. It can remain absolutely stationary in the air, even in a wind, for great length of time. Its lifting power will not depend upon any such delicate devices as the bird has to employ, but upon positive mechanical action.”

    Tesla’s flying saucer was powered by free energy system at a time when the fledgling aviation and motor car industry depended on oil and petroleum. His invention met the same fate as his free energy system.


    Improved Airships

    Tesla proposed that electrically-powered airships would transport passengers from New York to London in three hours, traveling eight miles above the ground. He also imagined that airships might draw their power from the very atmosphere, never needing to stop for refueling. Unmanned airships might even be used to transport passengers to a preselected destination or for a remote aerial strike. He was never given credit for his invention. However, today, we have unmanned drones carrying out combat missions, supersonic airplanes that fly at amazing speeds and space shuttle technology that can circle the Earth in the upper atmosphere.

    It was long suspected that the FBI literally stole all of his work, research, and inventions that he had in his possession when he died. This rumor has now been confirmed by recent, heavily redacted Freedom of Information Act requests released by the FBI.

    This is a very pertinent episode. It shows the invader can be defeated. They are NOT completely dominant over us. Technology can be adapted to crash their ships. Maybe it was in the past. There were 74 Roswell type crashes since 1897. There was a man named Tesla who developed a death ray. He also devised a weapon that could destroy thousands of craft in flight. I surmise we have been at war with the 'aliens' for some time. We have just not understood our heroes from the past, and the roles they played. Of course, the aliens loaded certain craft with bait, technology, to apply a Trojan Horse option. We took the bait. 


    As an aside, you see Dr. Kramer breaking all the protocols regarding secrecy. This is the most common mistake patriots and activists make. They hang all their laundry on the clothes line for all to see. They think no one is observing them. That is the greatest mistake you can make. They are watching always. Then when they strike it is because you gave away your position. They are predators. You are the prey. Think like one. Loose lips sink ships as they said in the navy. 


    Furthermore, you see how they recruit and control people with offers to suit all your deepest desires primarily power, money and sex. The seductress played a small role, but she was there. Think Epstein isn't working for the power to lure people into the trap, think again. 

    The first Roswell was in 1897. Who do you think figured out the technology?

    The Invaders is an American science fiction television program created by Larry Cohen that aired on ABC for two seasons, from January 10, 1967 to March 26, 1968. Dominic Frontiere, who had provided scores for Twelve O'Clock High and The Outer Limits, provided scores for The Invaders as well.


    The series was a Quinn Martin Production (Season One was produced in association with the ABC Television Network - or as it was listed in the end credits, "The American Broadcasting Company Television Network").

    Roy Thinnes stars as architect David Vincent, who accidentally learns of a secret alien invasion already underway and thereafter travels from place to place attempting to foil the aliens' plots and warn a skeptical populace of the danger. As the series progresses Vincent is able to convince a small number of people to help him fight the aliens.


    35 18 "Counter-Attack" Robert Douglas Laurence Heath January 9, 1968

    David Vincent is working with a Dr. Kramer in order to advance the fight against the aliens by jamming their saucer's signals. As they are leaving Kramer's building at night they are attacked by two aliens. Vincent manages to overpower the aliens who are both killed in the scuffle, but Dr. Kramer is also killed. Kramer's briefcase with important material is taken by David just as the building's security guard arrives, whereupon Vincent tells the guard to call for an ambulance. Vincent keeps one of the alien's guns. David is picked up by Edgar Scoville (Kent Smith) who learns of his friend Kramer's death. Scoville takes Vincent to a meeting of the believers where he is introduced to Colonel Archie Harmon (Lin McCarthy) a friend of Scoville's, but an alien skeptic and not a part of the group. At the meeting Scoville hands over the briefcase material to his chief engineer and group member Jim Bryce (John Milford) with instructions to advance the material now that Kramer has died. Scoville's niece Joan (Ahna Capri) is another member of the group.


    Meanwhile detectives under lieutenant Connors (Ken Lynch) have arrived on the scene of Kramer's death and when they catch up with David decide to hold him for questioning. They baldly accuse Vincent of killing Kramer and taking his briefcase. They also find the alien's plasma pistol in David's car. The aliens under Lucien (Donald Davis), however, are closely monitoring Vincent even at the police station. Joan visits David at the station and tells Vincent that Scoville is still upset over Kramer's death and that he is reluctant to help Vincent. When an unknown lawyer has David released, Vincent finds that he has been fired from a building project owing to the bad publicity surrounding the Kramer accusation. He goes to a bar to drown his sorrows where he is befriended by Louise (Pamela Curran). She is an alien and who swaps out his cigarette case for one with a listening device. David, however, isn't as looped as he looks and realizes what she has done. After pretending to be all washed-up, Vincent lets himself be taken by Lucien.


    David convinces the aliens that he will play their game and give them transmitter details, in return for status and money. The aliens only partly believe Vincent, so they take Joan as extra insurance. Scoville is also playing along with the charade and informs this to Colonel Harmon, during a visit to where Scoville intends broadcasting his anti-saucer transmissions. Meanwhile, Scoville and Bryce manage to cause a saucer to crash into the ocean, and this elicits a bit of concern among the invaders. Vincent then leads Lucien and his aide to the transmission station where they let themselves in. But Scoville has set a trap and captures the aliens. Colonel Harmon is now convinced and calls Washington knowing that he has the evidence of the two aliens. However, the aliens vaporize themselves before they can be examined. Their auto-immolation is captured on tape. Vincent is acquitted on the murder charge and Harmon promises more support.

    Government prosecutors go after Sheila Gunn Reid for writing a BOOK ? Help us fight back

    For three months we at The Rebel have been privately fighting against an illegal attempt by the Alberta government to prosecute Sheila Gunn Reid, our star reporter and Alberta Bureau Chief, for writing the best-selling book, Stop Notley.

    That book is the most popular book on Alberta politics in 2019, reaching the number two spot on the Amazon.ca best-seller list.

    It's Sheila’s third best-selling book. The Rebel is proud to publish them.

    But Rachel Notley hates them. Because Sheila was the toughest journalist in the Alberta press corps — one of the few who would ever challenge Notley.

    Sheila broke more news scoops than any other Alberta reporter these past four years, including the incredible scoop that Rachel Notley cancelled every single water bomber contract just days before the wildfire tore through Fort McMurray.

    Notley actually banned Sheila from the Legislature as punishment for her reporting, literally sending an armed sheriff to block her from coming into the building. And then Notley had Alberta’s justice Department write us a letter banning us — or anyone “connected” to us — from going on government property anywhere. That’s illegal of course. But Notley didn’t care.

    So last year, Notley created a special new hunter-killer office, called the Election Commissioner. Not the Chief Electoral Officer in charge of running the elections — Alberta’s always had this. Notley created a new officer in charge of political crimes, called the Elections Commissioner. And she hired a disgraced activist named Lorne Gibson, who actually sued the conservatives in his personal capacity and was laughed out of court.

    PT-109 was a PT boat (patrol torpedo boat) last commanded by Lieutenant (junior grade) John F. Kennedy, future United States President, in the Pacific Theater during World War II. His actions to save his surviving crew after the sinking of PT-109 made him a war hero. PT-109's collision contributed to Kennedy's long-term back problems and required months of hospitalization at Chelsea Naval hospital. Kennedy's post-war campaigns for elected office referred often to his service on the PT-109.


    Specifications

    PT-109 belonged to the PT-103 class, hundreds of which were completed between 1942 and 1945, by Elco, in Bayonne, New Jersey. The ship's keel was laid 4 March 1942, as the seventh Motor Torpedo Boat (MTB) of the 80-foot-long (24 m)-class built by Elco, and was launched on 20 June. She was delivered to the Navy on 10 July 1942, and fitted out in the New York Naval Shipyard in Brooklyn.

    Destroyer Amagiri in 1930, 400 feet and heavily armed

    The Elco boats were the largest PT boats operated by the U.S. Navy during World War II. At 80 feet (24 m) and 40 tons, they had strong wooden hulls, constructed of two layers of 1-inch (2.5 cm) mahogany planking, excellent for speed, but offering very limited protection in a firefight or torpedo attack. Powered by three 12-cylinder 1,500 horsepower (1,100 kW) Packard gasoline engines (one per propeller shaft), their designed top speed was 41 knots (76 km/h; 47 mph).

    Leonard J. Thom: JFK’s XO on PT-109

    It is my opinion Jack was sent to the South Pacific to be silenced with his death in combat. No suspicion would be raised. Others with prior knowledge of Pearl Harbor had the same fate. Jack had to know based on his serving in intelligence at the outset. His seduction of purported spy Inga Arvad had a lot to do with it. We see in the movie his refusing to return to the States for leave. He couldn't. He saw plenty of action unlike other heroes. This tells the story. It was a hard one to find.

    On September 24, 1941 Kennedy, with the help of then director of the Office of Naval Intelligence, and former naval attaché to Joseph Kennedy, joined the United States Naval Reserve. He was commissioned an ensign on October 26, 1941, and joined the staff of the Office of Naval Intelligence in Washington, D.C.

    In January 1942, Kennedy was assigned to the ONI field office at Headquarters, Sixth Naval District, in Charleston, South Carolina.
