    "In the Year 2525 (Exordium et Terminus)" is a 1969 hit song by the American pop-rock duo of Zager and Evans. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks commencing July 12, 1969. It peaked at number one in the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in August and September that year.[1] The song was written and composed by Rick Evans in 1964 and originally released on a small regional record label (Truth Records) in 1968. A year later, an Odessa, Texas, radio station popularized the disc, which RCA Records quickly picked up for nationwide distribution. Zager and Evans disbanded in 1971. Denny Zager now builds custom guitars in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    Summary

    "In the Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus)" opens with the words "In the year 2525, If man is still alive, If woman can survive, They may find...". Subsequent verses pick up the story at 1010-year intervals from 3535 to 6565. Disturbing predictions are given for each selected year. In the year 3535, for example, all of a person's actions, words and thoughts will be preprogrammed into a daily pill. Then the pattern as well as the music changes, going up a half step in the key of the song, after two stanzas, first from A-flat minor, to A minor, and, then, finally, to B flat minor, and verses for the years 7510, 8510 and 9595 follow.

    The song has no chorus. Amid ominous-sounding orchestral music, the final dated chronological verse is,

    In the year 9595, I'm kinda wonderin' if Man is gonna be alive.

    He's taken everything this old Earth can give, and he ain't put back nothin', whoa-whoa...,

    The summary verse concludes:

    Now it's been 10,000 years, Man has cried a billion tears,

    For what, he never knew. Now man's reign is through.

    But through eternal night, The twinkling of starlight.

    So very far away, Maybe it's only yesterday.

    The song goes back to the beginning, starting all over again, with 2525 before the song's fade.

    The overriding theme, of a world doomed by its passive acquiescence to and overdependence on its own overdone technologies, struck a resonant chord in millions of people around the world in the late 1960s.

    The song describes a nightmarish vision of the future as man's technological inventions gradually dehumanize him. It includes a colloquial reference to the Second Coming (In the year 7510, if God's a-coming, He ought to make it by then.), which echoed the zeitgeist of the Jesus movement.

    -----------------------------------------

    This song comes out of some predictive programming I'm working on that graced the cover of the latest The New Yorker magazine. It is a chilling analysis of the future. It will be ready soon. With eyes to see it is very clear to me. New York is always on the short list of the NWO. GET THE PICTURE!

    Of course you see the parallel to the Abbey Road photo from the Ottawa attack. The boys are back and their disguises are better than ever.


  • Green Fields of France by John McDermott...

    John Charles McDermott (born 25 March 1955) is a Scottish-Canadian tenor best known for his rendering of the song "Danny Boy". Born in Glasgow, Scotland, John moved with his family to Willowdale, Toronto, Canada in 1965. Growing up in a musical family, his only formal musical training was at St. Michael's Choir School in Toronto, Ontario in 1971 and 1972.

    Starting out

    After singing at weddings for a few years, he joined with several other choristers to form a group, named The Mistletones, in 1980.

    He performed "The Ballad of Harry Warden", the closing theme of the Canadian slasher film My Bloody Valentine (1981).

    Starting in 1988, he has regularly been called upon to sing the national anthems at Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Maple Leafs. From 1984 through 1992, he worked as a circulation representative for the Toronto Sun; Conrad Black heard him singing at company parties. Black, along with other executives, financed McDermott's independent recording of "Danny Boy" in 1992, which was picked up and released in North America by EMI Music Canada. Following this unexpected success, McDermott decided to pursue a professional singing career.

    Professional career

    He performed his first concert at the Rebecca Cohn Theatre on October 5, 1993 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. From there he continued to tour the rest of Canada, performing as an opening act for The Chieftains. Throughout 1994, he went on a tour of Australia and New Zealand, following the great success of "Danny Boy", which had been ranked Number 1 on the charts there and achieved triple platinum in New Zealand. Next, in 1995, he went on a tour of Britain with The Seekers.

    At this point in his career, he was becoming recognized internationally, so he started to tour regularly as a solo act rather than an opening act. He also appeared at several special events including the D-Day ceremonies in France in 1995, and the United States Democratic National Convention in 1996. He has also appeared on television several times, both as a host of CBC Television concert specials in 1997, and in his own television special titled John McDermott: A Time to Remember, which aired on PBS in 2002. He formed The Irish Tenors, and after performing a large concert in Dublin, Ireland in 1998, they spent some time touring the United States, appearing on television, and releasing a gold record.

    Since leaving the Irish Tenors, McDermott continues to tour extensively throughout the World, performing with his own group and with the great symphonies of the world. He continues to work to support the veteran community in the United States and in Canada. In 2000, McDermott dedicated McDermott House in Washington, D.C., a transitional home for homeless veterans. His latest release, Journeys: Bringing Buddy Home, was recorded to help support fundraising for Fisher House Boston and launch the Canadian initiative for an outreach center for Canadian veterans.

    In 2010, John took part in the World Jazz for Haiti charity album, recorded at Number 9 Audio Group in support of the Red Cross disaster relief fund. The album featured Canadian artists such as David Clayton-Thomas and Holly Cole.

    No one does it better in my opinion. We remember those who lost their lives with the voice of John McDermott.

    Samuel "Sam" Cooke (January 22, 1931 - December 11, 1964 was an American recording artist and singer-songwriter, generally considered among the greatest of all time. Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the King of Soul for his distinctive vocals and importance within popular music. His pioneering contributions to soul music led to the rise of Aretha Franklin, Bobby Womack, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Billy Preston and popularized the likes of Otis Redding and James Brown. AllMusic biographer Bruce Eder wrote that Cooke was "the inventor of soul music", and possessed "an incredible natural singing voice and a smooth, effortless delivery that has never been surpassed."

    Cooke had 30 U.S. top 40 hits between 1957 and 1964, plus three more posthumously. Major hits like "You Send Me", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Wonderful World", and "Twistin' the Night Away" are some of his most popular songs. Cooke was also among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of his musical career. He founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer. He also took an active part in the Civil Rights Movement.


    On December 11, 1964, at the age of 33, Cooke was fatally shot by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles, California. After an inquest, the courts ruled Cooke's death to be a justifiable homicide. Since that time, the circumstances of his death have been consistently called into question by Cooke's family and his wide circle of friends and acquaintances.

    Death

    Cooke died at the age of 33 on December 11, 1964, at the Hacienda Motel at 9137 South Figueroa Street, in Los Angeles, California. Answering separate reports of a shooting and of a kidnapping at the motel, police found Cooke's body, clad only in a sports jacket and shoes but no shirt, pants or underwear. He had sustained a gunshot wound to the chest, which was later determined to have pierced his heart. The motel's manager, Bertha Franklin, said she had shot Cooke in self-defense after he broke into her office residence and attacked her. Her account was immediately questioned and disputed by friends and acquaintances.


    Boyer told the police that she had first met Cooke earlier that night and had spent the evening in his company. She claimed that after they left a local nightclub together, she had repeatedly requested that he take her home, but he instead took her against her will to the Hacienda Motel. She claimed that once in one of the motel's rooms, Cooke physically forced her onto the bed and that she was certain he was going to rape her. According to Boyer, when Cooke stepped into the bathroom for a moment, she quickly grabbed her clothes and ran from the room. She claimed that in her haste, she had also scooped up most of Cooke's clothing by mistake. She said she ran first to the manager's office and knocked on the door seeking help. However, she said that the manager took too long in responding, so, fearing Cooke would soon be coming after her, she fled from the motel before the manager ever opened the door. She said she then put her clothing back on, hid Cooke's clothing, went to a telephone booth, and called police.


    Boyer's story is the only account of what happened between the two that night; however, her story has long been called into question. Inconsistencies between her version of events and details reported by other witnesses, as well as circumstantial evidence, invited speculation that Boyer may have gone willingly to the motel with Cooke, then slipped out of the room with Cooke's clothing in order to rob him, rather than to escape an attempted rape.

    Some of Cooke's family and supporters, however, have rejected Boyer's version of events, as well as those given by Franklin and Carr. They believe there was a conspiracy to murder Cooke, and the murder took place in some manner entirely different from the three official accounts. Singer Etta James wrote that her viewing of Cooke's body, before his funeral, led her to join those who question the accuracy of the official version of events. She said the injuries she observed were well beyond what could be explained by the official account of Franklin's alone having fought with Cooke. James described Cooke as having been so badly beaten that his head was nearly separated from his shoulders, his hands were broken and crushed, and his nose mangled.

    Christ was very clear with how to handle those who crucified him. He said, Forgive them father for they know not what they do. If we broaden this lesson to our world today, we clearly see that our leaders are devotees of the Anti Christ side. They forgive nothing and raise armies for combat. War is not the answer because most of the reasons are orchestrated anyway.

    Iran: Happy video dancers sentenced to 91 lashes and jail

    19 September 2014 Last updated at 05:14 ET

    Six Iranians arrested for appearing in a video dancing to Pharrell Williams' song Happy have been sentenced to up to one year in prison and 91 lashes, their lawyer says.

    The sentences were suspended for three years, meaning they will not go to prison unless they reoffend, he adds.

    The video shows three men and three unveiled women dancing on the streets and rooftops of Tehran.

    In six months, it has been viewed by over one million people on YouTube.

    The majority of people involved in the video were sentenced to six months in prison, with one member of the group given one year, lawyer Farshid Rofugaran was quoted by Iran Wire as saying.

    The "Happy we are from Tehran" video was brought to the attention of the Iranian authorities in May, after receiving more than 150,000 views.

    Members of the group behind the video were subsequently arrested by Iranian police for violating Islamic laws of the country, which prohibit dancing with members of the opposite sex and women from appearing without a headscarf.

    They later appeared on state-run TV saying they were actors who had been tricked into make the Happy video for an audition.

    The arrests drew condemnation from international rights groups and sparked a social media campaign calling for their release.

    Williams, whose song was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year, also protested at the arrests.

    "It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness," he wrote on Facebook.

  • Into the Mystic - Van Morrison

    A blast from the past the vinyl days. Van Morrison's Into the Mystic. In a way that's what we do at the Cafe. We peer into the mystic the theme of this upcoming show.

    ALTERNAT LINK:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCFm1x3ZAtw

    "Into the Mystic" is a song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and featured on his 1970 album Moondance. It was also included on Morrison's 1974 live album, It's Too Late To Stop Now. The song has a soothing, calm, medium-paced tempo.

    Recording and composition


    "Into the Mystic" was recorded during the Moondance sessions at A&R Recording Studios in New York City in September to November 1969. Elliott Scheiner was the engineer.[1]

    The lyrics are about a spiritual quest, typical of Morrison's work. "Bass thrums like a boat in motion, and the song comes back to water as a means of magical transformation."[2] "At the very end Van sings: too late to stop now, suggesting that the song also describes an act of love." (This phrase would become a key point of many live concerts.)[3] Compared to "Yesterday" by The Beatles, it has been described as "another song where the music and the words seem to have been born together, at the same time, to make one perfectly formed, complete artistic element.“[4]

    Morrison remarked on the song: "'Into the Mystic' is another one like 'Madame Joy' and 'Brown Skinned Girl'. Originally I wrote it as 'Into the Misty'. But later I thought that it had something of an ethereal feeling to it so I called it 'Into the Mystic'. That song is kind of funny because when it came time to send the lyrics in WB Music, I couldn't figure out what to send them. Because really the song has two sets of lyrics. For example, there's 'I was born before the wind' and 'I was borne before the wind', and also 'Also younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was one' and 'All so younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was won' ... I guess the song is just about being part of the universe."[5]

    The 60's was a great decade for the anti-war movement. This was a classic hit in the genre. In the era of the Vietnam War this echoed off the walls for many years. As we approach the climactic end of the age where the forces of Gog and Magog assemble, we reflect one tin soldier. Peace on Earth is all we say.


    "One Tin Soldier" is a 1960s counterculture era anti-war song written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter. Canadian pop group The Original Caste first recorded the song in 1969 for both the TA label and its parent Bell label. The track went to number 6 on the RPM Magazine charts and hit the number 1 position on CHUM AM in Toronto, and reached number 34 on the American pop charts in early 1970.

    In 1971, the song was a hit in the U.S. for Coven, whose recording was featured in the film Billy Jack. The single went to number 26 on the Billboard pop chart before it was pulled from radio by the film's producer. A re-recorded version by Coven made the Billboard chart in 1973, peaking at number 79.

    A 1972 remake by Skeeter Davis had moderate success on the American country charts but did very well in Canada, peaking at number 4 on the Canadian country chart and number 2 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. Davis received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Country Vocal for the song.


    Britain to spearhead 10,000-strong Nato rapid reaction force with mission to halt Putin's 'Tsarist expansionism'

    • Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Norway and Netherlands will join bid against Putin
    • Aims to deter him from what West sees as move to redraw Europe's borders
    • Lithuanian president warned 'Russia is practically at war against Europe'
    • Concerns that he intends to impose a New Russia 'statelet' within Ukraine

    By Will Stewart For The Mail On Sunday

    Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaite, pictured left with David Cameron and Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, bluntly called for the West to wake up, saying 'Russia was practically at war with Europe'

    Britain is to spearhead a new Nato rapid-reaction force amid warnings that Vladimir Putin is virtually ‘at war against Europe’ and planning ‘Tsarist expansionism’.

    EU leaders were scrambling last night to bolster sanctions which have so far failed abysmally to halt the Russian president’s determination – in Western eyes – to bully Ukraine into remaining in his orbit.

    Leaders of countries sharing borders with Russia led the way in demanding tougher action against what they see as blatant aggression on their doorstep.

    Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaite bluntly called  for the West to wake up, and appeared to urge Nato to give significant military aid to Kiev.

    ‘Russia is at war against Ukraine and that is a country which wants to be part of Europe. Russia is practically at war against Europe,’ she said.

    She lambasted previous sanctions as ‘a big mistake’ because they were ‘too general’.

    Lithuania is one of at least six states believed to have signed up to a new British-led Nato rapid-reaction force, the formation  of which is expected to be announced this week by David Cameron as Wales hosts the most important Alliance gathering since the end of the Cold War.

    Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Norway and the Netherlands will also join the 10,000-troop bid to deter Putin from what  the West sees as an attempt to redraw the frontiers of Europe.

    A key concern is that he intends to use his military might to impose a new ‘statelet’ within Ukraine called Novorossiya –  or New Russia. What remains of Ukraine could be left with  no coastline if the plan goes through.

    A diplomat said: ‘Putin is obsessed with Novorossiya, territory won for the Romanovs by Catherine the Great. He wants it back.

    Ukraine crisis: Russia aid convoy 'invades Ukraine'

    22 August 2014 Last updated at 12:32 ET

    Russia's aid convoy heads through Ukraine towards Luhansk

    The BBC's David Stern: "Red cross officials say Moscow decided to move forward without them"

    Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has accused Russia of a "flagrant violation of international law" after Russian humanitarian aid lorries entered Ukraine without permission.

    More than 100 Russian lorries entered on Friday without an Red Cross escort and most without customs clearance.

    Rebel fighters could be seen at the border as the lorries passed

    But Russia's President Vladimir Putin said further delays to the delivery of aid "were unacceptable".

    Reports say the first trucks have reached the rebel-held city of Luhansk.

    Reporters at the scene saw rebel fighters in front of the convoy as it crossed the border near the town of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky.

    Ukraine's security chief Valentyn Nalyvaychenko said it was a "direct invasion" but no force would be used against the convoy as it wished to avoid "provocations".

    The Ukrainian army continued operations in neighbouring Donetsk region on Friday

    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it was not part of the convoy "in any way".

    Russia's foreign ministry has warned Ukraine not to take any action against the convoy, without specifying the consequences.

    In a statement, President Poroshenko said "a column of more than 100 vehicles entered Ukrainian territory without a customs inspection, without border control or International Red Cross escort, which is a flagrant violation of international law".

    Ukraine fears that the aid convoy of at least 260 lorries, which arrived at the border more than a week ago, is part of a broader Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine.

    Russia denies accusations that it arms and trains the rebels in Luhansk and the neighbouring region of Donetsk, where four months of fighting have left more than 2,000 people dead and caused more than 330,000 people to flee their homes...

    Australia Becomes First Developed Nation to Repeal Carbon Tax

    Tony Abbott Pledged to Get Rid of the Tax Last Year

    By ROB TAYLOR And RHIANNON HOYLE CONNECT

    Updated July 17, 2014 5:51 a.m. ET

    CANBERRA, Australia—After almost a decade of heated political debate, Australia has become the world's first developed nation to repeal carbon laws that put a price on greenhouse-gas emissions.

    In a vote that could highlight the difficulty in implementing additional measures to reduce carbon emissions ahead of global climate talks next year in Paris, Australia's Senate on Thursday voted 39-32 to repeal a politically divisive carbon emissions price that contributed to the fall from power of three Australian leaders since it was first suggested in 2007.

    Australia, the world's 12th largest economy, is one of the world's largest per capita greenhouse gas emitters due to its reliance on coal-burning power stations to power homes and industry. In 2011, daily emissions per head amounted to 49.3 kilograms (108 pounds), almost four times higher than the global average of 12.8 kilograms, and slightly ahead of the U.S. figure of 48.2 kilograms.

    The former Labor government, while introducing a price on carbon, said the move would help slash emissions by 160 million metric tons by 2020. It offered voters billions of dollars in compensation through tax breaks and welfare payments for increased costs stemming from one of the most dramatic reforms ever attempted in the energy-reliant economy.

    But after the global financial crisis took hold in 2008, followed by the end of a decadelong mining boom in 2012 that slowed growth and employment in the A$1.5 trillion (US$1.4 trillion) economy, Australian voters turned against climate laws—recognized by the International Energy Agency as model legislation for developed countries—blaming them for rising energy bills and living costs.

    The World Bank in May produced a State and Trends of Carbon Pricing report counting carbon pricing programs in 40 nations and 20 regions worth a collective US$30 billion, while also singling out repeal plans in Australia as one of the biggest international threats to the rollout of similar programs elsewhere, given its example.

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who made a pre-election "pledge in blood" to voters and business to prioritize growth above climate shift, delivered on his promise after independent senators with deciding votes in the upper house sided with his conservatives, following a power shift this month that ended years of domination by the pro-environment Greens party.

    "Today the tax that you voted to get rid of is finally gone, a useless destructive tax which damaged jobs, which hurt families' cost of living and which didn't actually help the environment is finally gone," a jubilant Mr. Abbott told voters in a news conference after the Senate's decision.

    He said the carbon price was acting as a A$9 billion a year handbrake on the economy, which was adjusting to the end of a record mining investment boom that helped shield Australia through much of the recent global economic downturn.

    Without matching emissions policies in other industrialized countries, Mr. Abbott had said earlier the tax was an unfair shackle on local companies and individuals, unequaled except in Europe, where an emissions market has operated since 2005...

    Argentina's Rational Default

    August 7, 2014

    This default, Argentina's eighth, is perhaps the strangest in history. The government has plenty of cash on hand and has already deposited its most recent interest payment of five hundred and thirty-nine million dollars with its trustee, the Bank of New York Mellon. But the bank cannot forward Argentina's money to its creditors, because Thomas Griesa, a federal judge in New York, has issued an order prohibiting the transfer.


    It's their EIGHTH default, but it matters not because they really had the money. The hidden hand is playing cames holding up the payment. Notice the amount of the interest. Imagine the amount of the debt. We are all slaves to the banksters. However, Argentina has something every agent looking for a safe haven should desire THE TANGO! Let the bastards play their games. We have moonlit nights and music and romance. The banksters have delusions of glory. The Cafe links to Buenos Aires here and shares the passion of travel to that Latin land where the dance and the ambiance are an inspiration. Never fear them. Enjoy yourself. Let them fear us in case the music ever stops.

    Don't ever let the world and the nefarious New World Order get you down. There is still life, love and laughter. I have come across this musical group. If Conspiracy Cafe had street side venue, we would play this music and talk about the latest plots and conspiracies. The like minded could dance the tango and show the world that not only is knowledge power, but is life at the apex. We know, and we change destines. Enjoy.

    A salute to classic film noir where style and grace were supreme. Many people are bugging out to South America. Get used to the rythms in case you're one.
