Madame de Staël – Proust – Russia’s Rockets – CIA’s Hit Teams (upd.)

(Update 14.Aug.2019) *This morning early in the A.M. had a clairvoyant vision of meeting my niece in the courtyard of my (now deceased) uncle’s farm. Nothing out of the ordinary, of course, – except she was obviously quite dead!

In an earlier post I’ve commented on threats like that (Link 1, whence I quote):

* (23.7.2019) This AM in clairvoyant vision saw my niece hanging with her head down. Obviously the DeepState psychos plan to perhaps have her kidnapped?

> The DeepState power brokers are in fact Robots! (link 2) – and love to have their SecretService kill or torture the completely innocent! Why? Because it makes the Robots feel superior to humans. Humans have empathy and cannot kill or torture the innocent!

Like expanded upon in another post (link 3, quote):

The main provenance and venue for dissemination of amorality (evil) is now probably the worlds Secret Services. They’ve managed to assume supreme power all over the world as their evil masterminds have – without too much trouble – managed to convince gullible parliaments everywhere, that the world will go under if they are not allowed to operate in total darkness, without any oversight by parliament and constitution whatsoever.

These SecretServices are arguably behind nearly all acts of terrorism in the civilized world? They are generally controlled and led by left-brain dominated entities (‘Of the Left Path’), more correctly described as psychopaths – or robots – rather than humans.

They have no ‘human feelings’ (empathy) whatsoever; in this respect they are handicapped vis-a-vis less degenerate humans, and surely they feel this handicap intensely.

This keenly felt inferiority complex makes it important for them to kill, torture and harass as many as possible; and in particular killing, tortureing and harassing the innocent make them feel superior to humans. This is because humans have emphaty and thus cannot kill or torture the innocent.

It’s this type of entities that now are the supreme leaders of the (western) world and leading us directly into the abyss.

Due to their inferiority complex robotic types of men have an extraordinary urge to climb to any leading position whenever possible. But sadly – they are ofcourse without any compass at all to successfully be at the helm and take care of the most important duties as leaders; destitute of any moral compass they can only lead you into misery and ultimate destruction.

From the dustcover of whistleblowing Mossad-agent Victor Ostrowsky’s book ‘The Other Side of Deception’ (N.Y.,1994)(note 1):

“Certainly it’s message is too chilling to be ignored: Should the world’s most famous intelligence agency continue to enjoy freedom from government oversight, it will ultimately threaten us all”.

Finally a few notes on why it’s so important just now to kill, kidnap or harass myself (or my extended family or friends).

Firstly: The US-SecretService/CIA want me on their plane back home (in a coffin) – but perhaps mostly by request of IL?

Second: Mossad is hardly amused by me elucidating on the possible, perhaps very successful attack on Russia’s missile program?

Third: Putin and his SecretService Directorate (or is it perchance the other way around?) is hardly amused by me pointing out their common predicament of allegiance? And there is such a thing as the Russian Mafia (often called the Kosher Nostra?) said to work closely together with Russian SecretPolice?

Fourth: We have already a few years ago seen how closely Mossad works with the Japanese Jakuza (link 4). Which part of the then Danish Government made the deal ‘with-the-devil’ (CIA/Mossad) alluded to in the linked post, ofcourse you don’t know. If it perchance should turn out to be one of the two leading entities in our new government, then the Danish Govt. might hypothetically feel an urgent need to have me silenced?

But which party of these may at present present the largest threat, of this ofcourse I know nil.

Here’s what I wrote yesterday (slightly expanded):

(13.Aug.2019) Today is Thursday and although it’s a bit on the soggy side in the streets here in downtown Copenhagen, ofcourse I had to take a quick look inside the HeiligGeist Church Community House.

This is because a new Dutch book sale just opened, and even though the price today is 80 DKr ($12.50) I didn’t resolutely enough resist the book-worm’s urge to buy a handful. Here’s a couple:

1. MISTRESS TO AN AGE. A Life Of Madame De Staël. By J. Christopher Herold. London 1958/1960. Readers Union. 486p., Hardcover and dustcover.

Here is what the publisher says on the dustcover flaps.

‘Germaine De Staël was the first woman of Europe during the cataclysmic eruptions of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars.

‘It is a rueful measure of her greatness that her own voice was heard above the roar.

‘Germaine demanded of life that it satisfy her virile thirst for glory and her feminine yearning for love. But love and glory became inextricably intertwined in her mind.

‘Her marriage to the Swedish Ambassador, de Staël, had the cognizance of Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, Gustavus III of Sweden and William Pitt, and made her a Baroness.

‘Of her five children only the first, with any certainty, could be considered de Staël’s.

‘Talleyrand was probably the first of her lovers, Narbonne, the Minister of War, another; Benjamin Constant she held captive the longest, but a complete list of those whom she loved (they were as often concurrent as successive) would include many of the most profound political, literary and philosophical minds of her time.

‘Passion and intellect, drama and, often, comedy are intermingled in Madame de Staël’s life. In this outstanding biography, Mr.Herold has succeeded in presenting all the contradictory facets of her personality, her thought, her behaviour and her impact on her time.’

There are ten, all highly positive, reviewer’s opinions on the back of the dustcover. Her the last one:

‘Mr. Herold is the ideal biographer, sympathetic but ironical, admirable in his descriptions and summings-up, equally at home with the politics, literature and personalities of the period.’

And finally, here the first paragraph of the authors preface:

‘This work is not offered as a ‘definitive biography’. In the first place, despite the impressive literature and documentation already published on Madame de Staël and her friends, a still larger mass of material remains unknown; in the second place, definitive biographies can be written only about people who are quite dead. Sometimes, to be sure, they still show some feeble signs of life, but the definitive biographer gives them the ‘coup de grâce’.’

From the text of the book, here a sample quote (p.286):

‘When the French invaded Switzerland in 1798, Bonstetten emigrated. He had begun a lifelong friendship with Frederika Brun, the Danish poetess, in 1791, and it was at her house in Copenhagen and at her country seat, Sophienholm, that he spent the years 1798-1800.

‘Married to a rich philistine of a merchant, Frederika cultivated her frustrated sensibilities by taking opium and writing poetry. Overwrought, sentimental, platonic, and three-quarters deaf, she regarded herself as a poet of genius.

‘Her house was a literary centre; Oehlenschläger, the future national poet of Denmark, made his debut there. Under Frederika’s influence Bonstetten began to write in German, which he had nearly forgotten. He returned to Switzerland in 1801, was nursed back from a near-fatal sickness under the care of Necker and Madame de Staël, and then proceeded, as Sainte-Beuve puts it, to rejuvenate.

‘Madame Brun appeared in Geneva at about the same time. On her first visit to Coppet she arrived at dawn, was overcome by the splendours of nature, burst into a quotation from Ariosto, and sent to bed by Germaine. She was a frequent guest from 1802 to 1810, bringing Oehlenschläger and the German poet Matthisson in her wake.’

I’m sure the book will be a valuable addition to my small collection of books on and by the French.

2. A PROUST SOUVENIR. By William Howard Adams. With Period Photographs by Paul Nadar. London, 1984. 128 p., hardcover with dustcover.

This is a beautiful book, with an interesting text and beautifully printed photographs by Nadar. Here is what they say on the dustcover flaps:

‘Like all novelists, Proust nourished his creative fancy with a rich diet of fact, and a variety of fact for which he had a voracious appetite was the photograph, especially portrait photographs.

‘Not only did photography have all the allure of newness, but from the outset it was seen to offer a startling potential for revealing previously undisclosed or unspoken qualities of character.

‘In his eagerness to redeem the past by reconstructing it imaginatively, Proust often rummaged through his vast collection of photographs as a stimulus to his memory.

‘You could see’, his housekeeper wrote, ‘that his thoughts were following a kind of underground track, as if he were organizing everything into images before putting them into words.’

‘Thanking the Marquise de Brantes for the photograph she had sent him, Proust declared that his own ‘imagination’ would retouch it ‘to the point of perfect resemblance.’ ((As an old photography buff I would say, that was funny!))

‘In Paris in the ‘belle epoque’, debate and speculation raged in society circles, and has continued to this day, as to the identity of the real people on whom Proust based his characters in ‘Remembrance of Things Past’.

‘Embarrassed outrage or delight on the part of those thought to be Proust’s models has been followed by intense professional interest on the part of scholarly researchers.

‘In ‘A Proust Souvenir’ Howard Adams pursues this fascinating search for Proustian sources. Sensitively and perceptively he juxtaposes the character studies of Proust with the images of Paul Nadar, the leading Parisian portrait photographer of the day, and the principal photographic influence underlying Remembrance of Things Past.

‘Nadar’s work gives us a rare insight into the milieu Proust satirized in his masterpiece: the fifty-four portrait photographs reproduced here depict key figures active in the worlds of the aristocracy, the bourgoisie and the arts who made up Proust’s circle – diplomats, doctors, salonistes and servants, duchesses and barons, actresses and models.

‘These portraits, together with Howard Adams’ analysis of their inspirational effect on Proust, provide a fresh understanding of Proust’s life and times, and of his novels, letters and criticism.’

An highly interesting addition to my books on the Frensh; only I fear I have to give it to my kid sister, who also read (and perhaps even lectures on?) his fiction.

Finally, lets take a quick look at a few recent tweets. As usual the asterix * indicates the tweet (that may not yet be tweetet!), while the chevron > indicates my comments.

Firstly let’s recap a few lines of what I wrote here
How To Shanghai Russia’s Space Age Future? (updated)

*(1.Aug.2019) Tonite in clairvoyant vision saw someone hijack a Russian ‘Buran’ spaceship and it’s giant booster rocket-ship. Is Russia’s ‘partners’ again planning to ‘Shanghai’ the space-age future of Russia?

‘In the vision, playing out like a movie, I was there as ‘an observer’. From a kind of escort vehicle I saw the beautifully crafted, finished and colored Buran space ship after it being successfully hijacked.

‘I then saw the hijack crew working on the giant (booster) rocket-ship, still on the ground. I saw someone overwriting a ‘blackboard’ or ‘blackbox’ (with new codes?). I then woke up.’

> In the week after I wrote this, Russia has successfully tested it’s first, very large military (bomber) drone. Ofcourse the drone is no ‘Buran’ – in fact the Buran spaceship is (as far as I know) moth-balled, and not scheduled to be rejuvenated?

What I saw in my vision was an advanced air- or space-craft successfully being flown; but someone mentioned ‘Buran’, and the ‘feeling’ was of something hijacked or stolen.

But wait – hasn’t there been (at least) gossip on the web about the Buran and the bomber-drone both being ‘hijacked’ – or stolen – designs? If this is so – perhaps it was in fact the drone I saw? (I just saw the air- or space-craft from behind, like you see the back of a car in front of you on the highway).

However the vision of a ‘hijack crew’ working on the large rocket is perhaps more likely still to have been the ‘secretive missile engine’ on a teststand?

I saw persons working underneath the vertically supported, large rocket; in fact I only saw the bottom part of the rocket relatively clearly. That means the crew were working directly beneath and near to the rocket-motor.

And someone was wiping clean a blackboard obviously to substitute text with something illegal, for example a virus code?

One reason a hacking (from afar or from a mole in the workforce or among the scientists) seems likely in this case of the highly secretive rocket motor that exploded on Aug.8th, is the fact that five scientists / engineers / designers reportedly were killed in the explosion.

The fact that adequate precautions were not taken to prevent this kind of major catastrophe – that may have set the highly trumpeted rocket technology back for a long time? – seems to indicate, that the technology was already regarded as mature.

Whence no strict security measures were taken: no one had expected the set up to be hacked by trojan horses (Mossad or CIA?).

One has to supose, that IL is not satisfied with their friend Putin, that has not accepted IL to Holocaust Iran? Is the hack possibly their revenge?

Ofcourse, one has to understand and sympathize with Putin being squeezed between a rock and a hard place: Being yewish he want to accomodate IL as far as possible; but he also need Iran to secure Russia’s southern flank.

Why did Putin’s SecretService not see this coming; no doubt they read (or at least they have read!) my blog. The Russians just have to hope that the General Directorate of their SecretService don’t have precisely the same problem as Mr. Putin: Wanting to accomodate IL as far as possible?

*The powerful explosion of a secretive missile engine (on August 8.?) with an “isotope power source” blew the device into pieces and threw workers off a sea platform, Russian nuclear agency Rosatom said. Searches for the missing went on all day.
https://www.rt.com/russia/466238-russian-rocket-blast-sea-rosatom/

*Russian scientists admit they were working on miniaturized sources of nuclear energy when a rocket engine exploded Thursday Aug.8, saying the accident occurred while testing an experimental cruise missile powered by a small reactor.
https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/confirmed-russia-missile-test-with-nuclear-reactor-exploded-radiation-released

*The view among independent experts was that the explosion appeared to have been caused by the failure of an experimental nuclear-powered cruise missile known in Russia as the 9M730 Burevestnik and by Nato as the SSC-X-9 Skyfall.
https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/confirmed-russia-missile-test-with-nuclear-reactor-exploded-radiation-released

*Putin had first unveiled the experimental technology during a 2018 speech showcasing Russian defense technology developments. The chief stunning claim behind the hypersonic missile is that it can traverse the globe indefinitely at “faster than Mach 5” based on its nuclear powered core.

How To Shanghai Russia’s Space Age Future? (updated)

*13Aug2019 I Guess I have to be very careful especially if I want to visit the dutch book sale opening up today close to Amagertorv. Has CIA/Mossad instigated several recent bombings to justify Copenhagen now crawling with CIA wanting their President to have me on plane – in a coffin?

As I mentioned in the linked blog from Aug.1st (excerpts below), no doubt the US ‘SecretService/CIA would like a lot to take myself back with them – in a suitcase’?

Excerpt from what I wrote Aug.1st:

‘At the corner of a nearby building I saw a large man (abt. 6feet6 and 35 y.o.a?) standing vigil and smoking a cigarette. He was wearing a somwhat smallish(?), grey business suit and heavy black shoes, size 13?, that needed a shine.

‘By the look of his shoes he had probably been pounding a lot of pavement already, so as you almost felt sorry for him. Except he did NOT invite friendliness!

‘When he spotted me (wearing my usual summer (panama) hat) he turned his back. And as I went past him he was careful to concurrently turn his body so as to always have his back to me. He obviously didn’t want me to get a good look at his face?

‘Ofcourse I cannot tell if he was US-SecretService or CIA. But I’m not in the least surprised he knew me by sight. The instant I learned Mr. Trump was to visit Copenhagen I was ofcourse fully aware, that the SecretService/CIA would like a lot to take myself back with them – in a suitcase.

Note 1.

From the dustcover of whistleblover Mossad-agent Victor Ostrovsky’s book ‘The Other Side of Deception’ (Harper Collins, NY, 1994):

“The truth about the death of Robert Maxwell and the story behind the near assassnation of George Bush are just two of the revelations contained in this headline-making account of one man’s journey into the dark heart of Mossad.

“Never has there been so detailed a look at the hidden agenda of extremists within a major intelligence agency – nor one so worrisome in its implications.

“In 1990 Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad agent, became an international celebrity when the state of Israel attemted to ban his first account of Mossad misdeeds, “By Way of Deception”. Few who watched that book soar to the top of the New York Times bestseller list anticipated that an even more shocking story remained to be written.

“Ostrovsky reveals here for the first time that for several years following his termination from the Mossad, he worked clandestinely with agency moderates. Under the guise of “disaffected former agent”, Ostrovsky infiltrated the KGB, MI5, and French, Jordanian and Egyptian intelligency in an attempt to derail operations planned by Mossad extremists.

“Frighteningly, the activities pursued by right-wing factions within the agency constitute a massive abuse of power that has had global concequences. They include:

– undermining the Arab-Israeli peace process through counterfeiting, assasination, and support of religious radicals

– facilitating lethal biological experiments on Palestinians and Soweto blacks

– organizing smear campaigns against world leaders

– offering support for at Soviet hard-liner coup (targeting Gorbatchev)

– killing an Israeli general, a leading German politician (the Prime-Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Uwe Barschel), a Canadian scientist, and a Kuwaiti journalist

– using “disinformation” to trigger American combat strikes against Israel’s enemies

– and much, much more…

“With the gritty authenticity that only truth can provide and a narrative pace that rivals the very best thrillers, The Other Side of Deception stakes a powerful claim to being THE espionage read of the year. Certainly its message is too chilling to be ignored: Should the world’s most famous intelligence agency continue to enjoy freedom from government oversight, it will ultimately threaten us all”.

Fleas On The Loose?

Today is Saturday and it’s quite nice out there. A bit on the windy side, perhaps – which I like a lot; makes everything seem a bit more living, the trees, the clouds, the flowers, – and even Earthlings seem slightly more alive?

Generally this is pleasently at variance with society at large: Because our western civilization is clearly dying, – and fast.

Nay, more specific and to the point, the whole Earthly civilization is obviously at this point of time just Dead Man Walking. Sad but true.

The culprit is, ofcourse, the death of morals; a deadly scourge of amorality now spreading with lightning speed over all of Earth from one or more ‘black holes’ in the old or new world.

The main provenance and venue for dissemination of amorality (evil) is now probably the worlds Secret Services. They’ve managed to assume supreme power all over the world as their evil masterminds have – without too much trouble – managed to convince gullible parliaments everywhere, that the world will go under if they are not allowed to operate in total darkness, without any oversight by parliament and constitution whatsoever.

Ofcourse the exact opposite will be the case.

These SecretServices are arguably behind nearly all acts of terrorism in the civilized world? They are generally controlled and led by left-brain dominated entities (‘Of the Left Path’), more correctly described as psychopaths – or robots – rather than humans.

They have no ‘human feelings’ (empathy) whatsoever; in this respect they are handicapped vis-a-vis less degenerate humans, and surely they feel this handicap intensely.

This keenly felt inferiority complex makes it important for them to kill, torture and harass as many as possible; and in particular killing, tortureing and harassing the innocent make them feel superior to humans. This is because humans have emphaty and thus cannot kill or torture the innocent.

Due to their inferiority complex robotic types of men have an extraordinary urge to climb to any leading position whenever possible. But sadly – they are ofcourse without any compass at all to successfully be at the helm and take care of the most important duties as leaders; destitute of any moral compass they can only lead you into misery and ultimate destruction.

From the dustcover of whistleblowing Mossad-agent Victor Ostrowsky’s book ‘The Other Side of Deception’ (N.Y.,1994)(note 1)

“Certainly it’s message is too chilling to be ignored: Should the world’s most famous intelligence agency continue to enjoy freedom from government oversight, it will ultimately threaten us all”.

Like I’ve said before, to have or feel morality means to have and feel responsibility for ‘our common Cosmic origin and heritage’. (link 1 & 2)

But everywhere you see – as they fittingly say in German ‘wohin man sieht’ – you see the exact opposite.

But – as likewise exposed before – destitute of a genuine moral compass Earthlings will be totally unable to navigate and cope with the extreme dangers of an unforgiving Universe: They are then in fact Dead Men Walking! (link 3)

This almost total absence of morals is certainly – and perhaps even notably? – ubiquitous in Danish society.

You can behold it f.i. in the Comic Opera just now playing out in the fight for power – note, not for ideas but just for the naked power, just like naughty children fight for power in the schoolyard – in the political party of the former PM. (And, tellingly, a large part of the mainstream press only has this struggle for power – not for ideas – in their telescope) (Link 6)

Or you can encounter this in your daily petty tasks and events – like the following incident for example – so childishly irresponsible that you have to cry but also roll on the floor laughting at the same time!

Yesterday I talked to the friendly manager of a large photo store near the Royal Theater in downtown Copenhagen.

Somehow we got to talk of this summers flea markets popping up all over the city. I mentioned I rarely visit these markets now from fear of hauling more old cameras home with me.

Instead, I said, perhaps I should consider taking some of my stuff, deemed not usable or desirable any more, to one of the flea markets and try to sell it.

My friend thought that was a great idea. He even wanted me to take some stuff from his shop with me to sell. Which I ofcourse had to decline.

Mainly because I am very well aware that the SecretService / SecretPolice will swoop down hard on me, if they could in any way, form or fashion prove I had taken stuff – however minute! – directly from a shop to the market stall.

And you can bet your bottom buck they’ll be there; after all the SecretService / SecretPolice has a staff of about 1000 persons. Who does what? They don’t do counter-espionage – like trying to block alien agents from harassing or killing Danish citizens or f.i. the family of acting (foreign) ministers; that would apparantly not interest them even remotely? (link 5)

Question: Do they always have available personnel if some alien agents want help with harassing, kidnapping or assassinating Danish citizens? Would they always have personnel available to harass any citizen on a flea market – because this is definitely very important for ‘national security’? Oh, and yes, I talk and I ask on the basis of about 25 years of harassment!

But back to our friendly photo store. I bought a few items on the cheap, stuff that I mostly wanted for my own use: F.i. a compact Tokina Zoom lens for the Pentax-A system – which makes it usefull for my digital Pentax. Personally I often prefer manual focus lenses even for my digital SLRs.

And a Canon 28mm f.2,0 wide angle lens for analog Canon. This one had a bad case of fungus growth on at least one inside lens surface; but as I own a good deal of special tools, I thought I could perhaps fix it (it turned out I couldn’t).

The 28mm f.2 lens is not very common; I saw only two specimens for sale on German ebay yesterday, priced at abt. $200.

Hence I thought I could risk paying 200 DKr (abt. $30) for the two items; in the bargain I got three more items – mostly without real value, though.

That evening I threw some of the stuff I don’t really want any more into a couple of small suitcases, planning to take them to one of this Saturday’s fleamarkets. But already my sixth sense had begun making me wary.

In the night I experienced this:

Firstly – in two clairvoyant dreams I was ‘sternly’ warned not to go to the market today. (I’ill be so kind and spare the esteemed reader for the dreary details).

Secondly – someone or something ‘banged a door’ the whole night – that is, from approx. the time I went to sleep (shortly before midnight) and until (almost) exactly 6 in the morning, when I rose (and normally would have risen to be on schedule for the market).

This apparent ‘banging of a door’ the whole night is ofcourse more than a little suspicious. Who on earth would bang a door throughout more than six hours of the night? The bangs, at least twice or trice each hour, were so loud that the walls of my appartment actually quivered.

Hence the bangs must have originated rather close by, either above or below (you cannot really tell if either). And even if it was a bit windy in the night, in the morning there didn’t seem to be large, open windows – with or without storm fasteners.

But luckily – we are not conspiracy theorists! On the contrary, – we are coincidence theorists! That’s why we can conclude with near absolute and positive certainty, that said ‘banging’ (obviously not just a sound but an actual physical banging on some fixture in a nearby flat) was certainly not caused by any sort of malign cabal of the SecretService and/or their friends.

Also, that would have been preposterous, really, because it hypothetically might have had the hoped for consequense of making my sleep fitful and shallow so as to prevent me from telepathically receive clairvoyant warnings during the night.

In an earlier post I’ve – then perhaps somewhat outlandishly – hypothetized, that said large photo store has been bugged by the SecretService and/or their friends. But now I’m afraid I have to necessarily regard this as affirmed, as I didn’t discuss my flea-market plans with anybody else.

But in the end I feel it’s safe to say we now know our Danish SecretService would never stoop to the unfathomable lows of aiding and abetting a rogue, foreign SecretService with kidnapping or assassinating one of their law-abiding citizens!

Even if said citizen occasionally had criticized the Ministry of Justice and their SecretService for their way of handling certain, minor matters – like f.i. the very minor matter of an attempted, but only NEARLY fatal, assassination plot targeting the wife of an acting Danish foreign minister (link 5).

But as it happened I didn’t feel like partaking in the fleamarket today, anyway. Perhaps another Saturday, who knows? By the way, the weather today turned out to be nearly perfect for the event.

Come to think of it: Day before yesterday (Thursday) in the morning at abt. 9.50 I chanced to meet a gentleman in front of our appartment house, that certainly did not ‘belong there’.

Said gentleman was just mounting or dismounting his bike on the sidewalk directly in front of our house. Ofcourse I can’t know, if he had been visiting or perhaps planned to visit our house.

He would be around 25-28 and about my size (6feet2) and perhaps weighing in at about 85 kg? His apparel was slightly uniform-like, – dark blue trousers, blue shirt and black rucksack. He was dark and unfriendly, and he had Mossad/CIA written all over him.

I believe it’s perhaps the first time in twentyfive years I’ve encountered someone directly in front of our building not returning my greeting.

He obviously did neither belong in our house, our city nor our country. Where did he belong then? Perhaps a Mossad or CIA facility somethere north of central Copenhagen, where he may have been heading?

That morning I had been down in our basement to attend to my laundry and any SecretService agent observing my activities would know, that when I tended the washing machine for the second time (to empty it) I would normally be busy in the basement for about 5 minutes.

Five minutes would be more than adequate for someone to leave (or enter) one of the flats nearby, and our building, without me observing him/her. But as it happened, the timer clock on the washing machine had reset.

Noting there was still 23 minutes till finished I just turned around on my heel and retraced my steps up and around to the street door. Question: Did I in fact surprise a foreign secret agent / assassin in front of our house?

No, ofcourse not. Like I’ve said repeatedly – our landlord family are honourable, honest, lawabiding people that would never, willingly, partake in the assassination of one or more of their tenants!

Likewise we now know with a high degree of certainty, that the Danish SecretService is mostly inhabited by a honourable, honest, lawabiding staff, that tries to always operate in strict conformity with our constitution. It goes without saying, really!

The Country House

(7.Aug.2019) Today is Wednesday and a real nice day here in downtown Copenhagen. Yesterday I finally managed to make up my mind to call two of my old and, for many years, rather close friends, D. and W. They have now grown old and frail, both being in their mid to late eighties. And I have to admit I haven’t called them often enough, recently.

D. is now in a very nice nursing home North of Copenhagen and is, as the incredibly good sport she is, trying her best to enjoy herself – and her company.

I think it’s fair to say, that she is the best ‘girlfriend’ I’ve had for 25 years, even if we never lived or slept together. She was so much fun to be with, even in her late seventies – intelligent and funny, fair and broadminded and cultured. Never, ever did she complain, wail or lament anything, even if she certainly had her share of burdens to carry.

Being of distinguished family (her grandmother was born on the perhaps prettiest castle-like country house in all of Sealand) she claims in her youth to have been invited (three times!) by the (now deceased) Queen-mother to apply for the position as nanny for the Princess that is now our Queen.

I dare say they couldn’t have got a better person for the job; but she declined on account, she says, she was afraid not to become married!

She said yesterday she was glad I called her; frankly I’ve got the impression she now prefers me to not visit her too often – too much trouble – but rather to call.

However my call to W. didn’t fare so well. He picked up the receiver, all right, but obviously couldn’t hear me talking. As we until recently were rather close friends for almost two decades, ofcourse I’m a bit worried, whence I’ve tried to contact his family pr. email – approx. like this:

Hello,

I’ve tried to telephone your father a few times recently. But to no avail, even if he does pick up the receiver. He tries to say something, but obviously cannot hear me talking, much less understand me.

This is why I would like to ask you if to your knowledge your father is perhaps very ill? Or ‘just’ generally weakened by old age? Admittedly I haven’t talked to him for about a year.

Can you possibly indicate if it would be convenient to him for me to visit him?

Kind regards –

Trouble was, that I wasn’t sure I had a valid email address; but the message nevertheless seems to have gone through, all right.

Because this morning I had a clairvoyant vision like this: I saw someone examining a bag of some sort, perhaps like a small bag hidden inside a larger one; there was a powder like substance on the small bag, which was examined closely and critiscized.

Exposition: The vision most likely would relate to the Danish proverbial saying: ‘Han har ikke rent mel i posen’ – which translates literally like this: ‘He doesn’t have only genuine flour in his sack’ (there is probably a corresponding English proverb, whose exact form I don’t know, however, and am unable to conveniently find in the café I’m writing this).

Ofcourse you cannot blame this elderly gentleman’s family for being suspicious. Especially as I seem to be aware his progeny was never very close to him, and hence most likely don’t know much about his friendships.

Our common interest is, or was, predominantly that of photography. He is one of less than a handful of my friends, who had a deep and genuine interest in working with – and sometimes also collecting – old photographic apparatus.

To that end we travelled all over Northern Europe in his various, wonderful BMWs: from Amsterdam to Berlin and Hamburg to Munich. We were even together in Paris at one time, though by plane.

Likewise I’ve often visited him, mostly staying overnight, in his large, somewhat lonely, country house.

But for several years now, it’s often been difficult for me to travel to this rather remote place on account I’ve had to consider my own (and his) security (link 1, in danish). I think my most recent visit was about three years ago.

This predicament has been especially inconvenient, as I’ve most often had a lot of trouble finding a suitable excuse, when I’ve had to cancel an appointment on account being warned clairvoyantly. As you may know by now (link 2), most genuine photographers are heavily left-brain dominated and have no idea of cabals whatsoever.

Ofcourse it would be impossible for me to now visit his place alone; that would be far too dangerous both for myself and perhaps especially for W. Firstly – elderly people most often become somewhat suspicious; they are not only increasingly unable to discern friend from foe; but they also become forgetful, and if they happen to have lost account of something, large or minute, they naturally tend to suspect any visitor.

Also, and worse, – it would perhaps be too hard for CIA/Mossad to withstand the temptation to mix in the fray. I mean, wouldn’t it be SO nice, if W. would just please (if not all by himself, then perhaps by a small amount of push and shove from someone aided and abetted by our friendly SecretPolice?) fall and hit himself, perhaps fatally, on his head a few minutes after I’ve left his place?

The SecretService/SecretPolice would then have a wonderful – so avidly sought after? – opportunity to go after myself with everything they have – ‘throw the book after me’, as they say.

So things are getting complicated, I’m afraid. It seems I could not count on his family to join me in paying him a short visit; and if not I would probably have to call it a day.

Link 1.

Here is a small sample of three of the clairvoyant dreams with warnings I’ve experienced since about 2000.
(extracts, translated from Danish original found on
https://blocnotesimma.wordpress.com/2014/04/03/nyheder-eller-ikke-3/ )

1. In the late half of the nineties I was introduced to the above (elderly) gentleman by a friendly photo-dealer in Jutland.

We both shared an avid interest in nature photography with old, classic or antique cameras and the second time we met he invited me to accompany him in his car that same day to a camera show in Hamburg.

A camera show – in Germany called Fotobörse – is a meeting place and flea market for amateur photographers and collectors of classic or antique photographic paraphernalia.

Until this trip by car to Hamburg I had never considered driving my own car in a forign country, but I soon learned this was no big deal. In fact drivers in Northern Gernamy (but not necessarily in Southern Gernamy!) are no doubt more considerate and patient than in my home city, Copenhagen.

This is why I occasionally have driven to Hamburg – or even Berlin – after I got the chance a few years later to buy a small Mitsubitshi for $1000.

At some point in the late 2000’s I had planned a trip to Hamburg. But eventually I felt I had to cancel it because of a warning dream I had shortly before I was scheduled to leave.

It was the first of several subsequent dreams in which I likewise was warned not to go. This first dream went like this:

I dreamt an old woman was standing in the courtyard to my mothers birthplace, a small farm in Northern Jutland.

She was standing just outside the front door; old and lean, and somewhat stooped, wearing an old fashioned, dark dress.

She faced me directly and said – clearly, earnestly and urgently – STOP! STOP!

Just that, and I couldn’t discern her face.

I didn’t dare ignore this commendably brief and clear warning, and cancelled my trip.

2. The next warning dream was occasioned by an invitation from the above mentioned friend, must have been just around 2010. He wanted me to, once again, visit him in his rather remotely situated country house on the South-Danish isle Langeland, and which I had thankfully accepted.

But a couple of nights before I was scheduled to leave for the trip I had a quite unusual, likewise obviously clairvoyant warning dream.

Not only was the dream scary, but rather downright chocking, and was felt like going on for almost the whole night, approximately like this:

I saw (and heard) one (or more) helicopter(s) land close by my friends country house – on the large lawn and ‘by high noon’.

Exciting one of them were several ‘commandos’ with a stretcher. I saw one of the commandos – a ‘navy seal type’ – quite clearly, inc. his head and face.

He had a black rag around his head, like a pirate, and he said (approx:). ‘You have now made fools of us for 3 months’.

I then woke up, already somewhat disturbed. But soon went to sleep again, as I’m normally an easy sleeper.

But just to soon after wake up again ‘with helicopters buzzing and whirring all around me’; and to jump out of bed, all disturbed again. This was repeated twice or trice, until I was through with sleeping for good.

This morning I was obviously quite disturbed and had to cancel the trip.

3. In a recent comment on http://aanirfan.blogspot.com/2017/08/kidnapped-model-chloe.html?showComment=1502197789860#c3380968984860953914
I responded the following to another commenters link to a movie about the April.10 2010 plane crash in Smolensk, where much of the then Polish Government/Military leadership perished (here slightly amended):

“In April 2010 NATO staged a major navy exercise “Brilliant Mariner”. The theatre of operations was primarily placed in Danish waters including around the northern part of Jutland (the command center was in the Northern town of Frederikshavn).

“I had long planned to visit my uncle and spend perhaps a week on his small farm in the rather lonely area just South of the Bay of Vixoe / Bay of Jammer, midway between the small, regional cities of Thisted and Fjerritslev in the Northwest part of Jutland, where I grew up.

“A few days before I had to go I began dreaming of one, two or three commandos landing by parachute in the nightly woods, moors and wetlands in the vicinity of the farm.

“This occured repeatedly during two or three nights and the “atmosphere” in these dreams was saturated with gloom and danger. Consequently I decided to devise a pretext for not going.

“By studying the NATO homepage I found, that a few (I seem to recall 4) aircraft were not accounted for. All other aircraft were meticulously listed with type and registration.

“I suspected the “missing” planes perhaps might be Polish helicopters that seemed to have had space provided for them on certain Polish ships. These helicopters might perhaps have been anonymized?

“More dirctly to the crash I remember I happened to read a report in one of the (Swedish?) papers. Here a nearby gas station assistant told she heard a sizzling sound in the air right around or slightly before the time of the crash, and being puzzled by hearing neither crash nor explosion.

“One wonders if the sizzling sound possibly could have been from helicopters flying in “stealth mode”?

“Depending of the position of their motherships the helicopters may be expected to have been able to operate both above Northern Jutland as well as near Smolensk?”

How To Shanghai Russia’s Space Age Future? (updated)

(Aug.1.) Today is a real nice summer day here in downtown Copenhagen. Crossing the City Hall Square a short way from the café where I’m writing this, I noticed the first signs of the impending visit in Copenhagen by US-President, Mr. Trump.

At the corner of a nearby building I saw a large man (abt. 6feet6 and 35 y.o.a?) standing vigil and smoking a cigarette. He was wearing a somwhat smallish(?), grey business suit and heavy black shoes, size 13?, that needed a shine.

By the look of his shoes he had probably been pounding a lot of pavement already, so as you almost felt sorry for him. Except he did NOT invite friendlyness!

When he spotted me (wearing my usual summer (panama) hat) he turned his back. And as I went past him he was careful to concurrently turn his body so as to always have his back to me. He obviously didn’t want me to get a good look at his face?

Ofcourse I cannot tell if he was US-SecretService or CIA. But I’m not in the least surprised he knew me by sight. The instant I learned Mr. Trump was to visit Copenhagen I was ofcourse fully aware, that the SecretService/CIA would like a lot to take myself back with them – in a suitcase.

Twenty minutes later I spotted three gentlemen walking together past the Café. They were all well fed, middle aged men and looking well pleased with themselves and their job. They all wore identical, blue business suits and likewise all wore a badge on their lapel with the colours of the Stars and Stripes. It seems like the presidential ‘security details’ are not wasting much time?

Below is what I wrote last Thursday, Aug.1.

Today is Thursday and it’s wet out there. Why not, then, spend a few minutes taking a quick look at a few of my recent tweets? (As usual the asterix * indicates the tweet while a chevron > indicates my comment; some tweets may not yet be tweeted).

* 1. (1.Aug.2019) Today in early AM had clairvoyant vision of young teenage girl held captive, crying. Are Mossad and/or their friends once again planning to kidnap my nephew’s young girl? Ofcourse we now know the Global power-brokers may often have a penchant for young teen-age girls? (link 1)

* 2. (1.Aug.2019) Tonite in clairvoyant vision saw someone hijack a Russian ‘Buran’ spaceship and it’s giant booster rocket-ship. Is Russia’s ‘partners’ again planning to ‘Shanghai’ the space-age future of Russia? (link 2)

> In the vision, playing out like a movie, I was there as an observer. From a kind of escort vehicle I saw the beautifully crafted, finished and colored Buran space ship after it being successfully hijacked.

I then saw the hijack crew working on the giant (booster) rocket-ship, still on the ground. I saw someone overwriting a ‘blackboard’ or ‘blackbox’ (with new codes?). I then woke up.

(Update Aug.19.) “In the week after I wrote this, Russia has successfully tested it’s first, very large military (bomber) drone. Ofcourse the drone is no ‘Buran’ – in fact the Buran spaceship is (as far as I know) moth-balled, and not scheduled to be rejuvenated?

“What I saw in my vision was an advanced air- or space-craft successfully being flown; but someone mentioned ‘Buran’, and the ‘feeling’ was of something hijacked or stolen.

“But wait – hasn’t there been (at least) gossip on the web about the Buran and the bomber-drone both being ‘hijacked’ – or stolen – designs? If this is so – perhaps it was in fact the drone I saw? (I just saw the air- or space-craft from behind, like you see the back of a car in front of you on the highway).

“However the vision of a ‘hijack crew’ working on the large rocket is perhaps more likely still to have been the ‘secretive missile engine’ on a teststand?

“I saw persons working underneath the vertically supported, large rocket; in fact I only saw the bottom part of the rocket relatively clearly. That means the crew were working directly beneath and near to the rocket-motor.

“And someone was wiping clean a blackboard obviously to substitute text with something illegal, for example a virus code?

“One reason a hacking (from afar or from a mole in the workforce or among the scientists) seems likely in this case of the highly secretive rocket motor that exploded on Aug.8th, is the fact that five scientists / engineers / designers reportedly were killed in the explosion.

“The fact that adequate precautions were not taken to prevent this kind of major catastrophe – that may have set the highly trumpeted rocket technology back for a long time? – seems to indicate, that the technology was already regarded as mature.

“Whence no strict security measures were taken: no one had expected the set up to be hacked by trojan horses (Mossad or CIA?).

“One has to supose, that IL is not satisfied with their friend Putin, that has not accepted IL to Holocaust Iran? Is the hack possibly their revenge?

“Ofcourse, one has to understand and sympathize with Putin being squeezed between a rock and a hard place: Being yewish he want to accomodate IL as far as possible; but he also need Iran to secure Russia’s southern flank.

“Why did Putin’s SecretService not see this coming; no doubt they read (or at least they have read!) my blog. The Russians just have to hope that the General Directorate of their SecretService don’t have precisely the same predicament as Mr. Putin: Wanting to accomodate IL as far as possible?” (Link 5a)

As the recent Shanghai trade talks between China and the US was concluded yesterday after only a few hours of meetings (a ‘working dinner’ tuesday and talks in the AM yesterday, wednesday), perhaps we should consider what was REALLY discussed in Shanghai?

Because, for a small army of important, high-power US-Government officials to travel all the way from Washington to Shanghai just to enjoy a dinner and talk for a few hours, there would have been some VERY important issues on the agenda. (link 6)

Personally I’ve had a hard time believing these important gentlemen would travel that long just to talk a few hours about issues that perchance could have been settled as well or better over the internet or by phone. At the very least the talks must have been very poorly prepared?

But I tend to rather believe, that at least one strategically much more important issue was discussed. Something far too sensitive to be discussed over any kind of internet- or satellite-link.

What issue might that be? Perhaps the same phantom that seems to have visited at the most recent G.20 conference?

Please compare my blog post from last December 28., whence I here repeat the highlights:

*In early a.m. of Wednesday Nov.28.2018 had vision of US-President donning his new, green Chinese generals uniform. The Uniform was however in Russian Style. That’s why I tweeted that same wednesday that Xi and US are going to embrace in #G20 and split up #Russia.

*(28.Nov.2018) In early a.m. there were rumours in the ether that US & Xi are going to embrace at G20. The split: US to have Europe to Urals, Xi to have Siberia to Urals and IL gets MiddleEast?

> The above two tweets seem to have made quite an impact. You can follow a bit of the resulting panic reaction here (link 2).

Perhaps the most recent Shanghai talks are much more likely to have been – once again – about robbing Russia blind and how to split the spoils? In other words – how to ‘shanghai’ Russia’s space age future? (link 3)

Among the most important particulars coming up would be – and above all others, perhaps – the question of Iran. Putin’s Israeli friends reportedly want to holocaust Iran – and badly?

But how could the US-IL Government go about making this happen without China getting into a frenzy? After all – China needs oil, and the US has recently been harassing and threatening suppliers from Syria, Venezuela and now Iran.

Perhaps by handing Taiwan (and HongKong?) to the Chinese. Also, perhaps, by making Russia desperate to sell oil to the Chinese? (NordStream2!)

Without Iran securing Russia’s underbelly and with China perhaps secretly being treacherous, Russia may be sunk? I.e. – no space-age future?

One important nail in Russia’s coffin would be the US threatening or convincing Poland and especially Denmark to continue to openly sabotage the NordStream2 undersea oil pipeline from Russia to Germany.

It’s no doubt mainly in this perspective you have to see the recently announced visit by US-President Trump to Poland (Sept.1st) and Denmark (Sept.2-3.): It will not just be a cosy get-together with a young and pretty, US-IL-friendly (remember the Drudgereport endorsement – link 4) Danish PM. It’s much more likely to be hardball about Global agression and domination.

In fact the visit to Denmark happened to be announced yesterday – i.e. more or less concurrently with the Shanghai team returning to Washington.

To break Putin’s Russia – so important for Israel and the US – the disruption of the NordStream2 pipeline is still deemed to be of paramount importance (link 5).

The Russian economy is already stagnating, partly on account of US-american sanctions, and partly, perhaps, because of the wast billionaire riches hidden in off-shore accounts – said to amount to upward of 60% of the Russian GNP.

Giraudoux – H.D.Lawrence – Littré (upd.)

A five-minute walk from the café in downtown Copenhagen where I’m writing this, the Dutch book sale in the HeiligGeist Church Community House has now closed down the most recent event (the friendly folks at Nordisk-Antikvariat are, however, scheduled to start a new episode on Aug.13). Here’s some of what I found recently (at a price of 5 Kr or 10 Kr ($0,75 – 1,50) respectively).

As usual I give sample quotes in the language of the book.

1. FRANSKE EMNER. Af Tage Brüel. København, 1946, Wivels Forlag. 175 p. Softcover. (5 Kr)

I’m rather sure I already own a copy of this thin volume, but at 75 cents, and as this specimen is quite nice, I thought I could treat myself to a keeper and a user.

Quite apart from the price it seems an admirable little work with much of interest. Here’s what they say on the back cover.

‘DE GODE VILJER’S oversætter, lektor Tage Brüel udsender hermed et bind af sine artikler og radioforedrag om franske historiske og litterære emner, skrevet i tidsrummet 1928-1946.

‘Udvalget giver et fyldigt billede af moderne fransk historieskrivning, som paa afgørende maade ændrer den traditionelle opfattelse af Frankrigs historie i det 18. og 19. aarhundrede.

‘For skønlitteraturens vedkommende koncentreres opmærksomheden om enkelte hovedværker eller centrale forfatterskaber fra dette aarhundrede, der karakteriseres med kølig nøgternhed og overlegen humor.

‘Bag den rigt facetterede stilkunst, som gør fremstillingen nærværende og livfuld, røbes et udtømmende kendskab til de foreliggende emner.’

And here’s a few sample quotes from his (radio) lecture (1946) on the french writer JEAN GIRAUDOUX (1882-1944) (p.162f)

‘Giraudoux er født 1882 i den lille midtfranske by Bellac. Han viste sig tidlig at være ikke blot en original begavelse, men ogsaa en receptiv begavelse, og han blev, vel navnlig i denne sidste egenskab, forgudet af sine lærere.

‘Fra skolefjendtlig side fremføres altid, at Henrik Ibsen klarede sig daarligt i Gymnasiet. Giraudoux er et smukt bevis paa, at det ikke ligefrem er en betingelse for at blive en stor digter at have faaet 2. karakter til studentereksamen.

‘Men pædagogerne skal alligevel ikke glæde sig for tidlig. I det lille skuespil INTERMEZZO spotter Giraudoux med piblende vid over den autoritetsbundne opdragelsesmetode og lovpriser som modsætning dertil instinktet og naturtilstanden; han drømmer om Tahitiøerne, hvor jorden bliver gold, naar man pløjer den, og hvor træerne gaar ud, naar de bliver beskaaret.

‘Giraudoux tog magisterkonferens i tysk og berejste saa det halve Europa og Nordamerika. Efter sin hjemkomst valgte han den diplomatiske bane, hvad der førte ham ud paa nye rejser, blandt andet til Rusland og Orienten. I 1914 blev han mobiliseret og kæmpede ved Marne og ved Dardanellerne.

‘Derefter genoptog han sit arbejde i udenrigsministeriet, hvad der ikke hindrede ham i at udfolde en omfattende romanproduktion. De franske ministerialkontorer synes overhovedet at have haft en vis betydning for digtekunsten.

‘Maupassant, som var ansat i Marineministeriet, skrev mange af sine bedste noveller paa kontoret. Den kendte romanforfatter Huysmans, som var ansat i Indenrigsministeriet, digtede bedst i kontortiden. Hans berømte roman Lá-bas blev i sin helhed udarbejdet i ministeriet. Han tog ikke engang papirerne med hjem, naar han om eftermiddagen forlod kontoret.

‘For Giraudoux’s vedkommende synes det snarere at have været saaledes, at han søgte hen i sit ministerium for at slippe for at høre om udenrigspolitik. Han bemærker i hvert fald et sted, om end i en spøgende tone, at naar hans portnerkone eller tobakshandler tuder ham ørene fulde af udenrigspolitik, saa tyr han til sit ministerium på Quai d’Orsay.

‘Mit eneste fristed’, skriver han. ‘Her kan jeg – ligesom i sin tid i skyttegravene, hvor krigen aldrig blev drøftet -, endelig udveksle meninger med mine kolleger om, hvordan man skal klippe sin puddelhund, eller om den bedste maade at indramme sine Daumiertegninger paa.’

‘Giraudoux var 45 aar, da han debuterede som dramatiker, men han havde forlængst inden for snævrere kredse vundet ry som romanforfatter.

‘Der er ingen grund til at skjule, at hans romaner er en meget vanskelig læsning. Ikke fordi han omgiver sig med dunkelhed; tværtimod; han har skrevet ting af en krystalklar skønhed, som næsten er nok til at forsone én med tilværelsen.

‘Men han omformer virkeligheden paa en saa subjektiv maade, og hans opfindsomme fantasi knytter saa mange nye og uvante tankeforbindelser, at læseren tit har svært ved at følge ham.

‘For Giraudoux er de ydre ting kun tegnene paa en dybere virkelighed. Det er digterens opgave at tyde disse tegn. Hans indre erfaringer er alt.’

2. LITTÉRATURE. Par Jean Giraudoux. Paris, 1941, Editions Bernard Grasset, 7.ed., 318 p. Softcover. (5 Kr)

From the article CARICATURE ET SATIRE here’s a small sample quote (p.179) (as usual I have to omit the French ‘diacritics’ as I’m writing Braille on a Danish keyboard):

‘Plus j’avance dans la vie, plus je m’etonne de voir avec quelle apathie et quelle facilite l’humanite renonce aux deux seules armes sur lesquelles elle pouvait compter de facon un peu certaine comme recours envers la micro et la macrocephalie, envers l’extreme stupidite et l’extreme orgueil, envers les mefaits de la poesie et de la presse, de la nudite et de l’habillement: je veux dire a la caricature et a la satire.’…

(page 186:)
‘Mais que la satire, – genre litteraire anodin et qui ne demande ni la fin du monde ni le voisinage du Leviathan; qui est un art foncierement loyaliste envers l’humanite, puisque, loin de contester l’a-propos de son existence, il prend au serieux ses vertus et ses travers; qui fait appel aux deux humeurs ou elle se complait le plus, le denigrement et l’indignation, – n’ait plus chez nous ses lettres de creances, c’est ce que je trouve le plus difficilement explicable.

‘En France particulierement la bourgeoisie lisante et pensante n’admet plus, en depit de toute gale, cette fourchette a gratter le dos. Elle tolere l’insulte, la calomnie, la medisance. Il ne viendra jamais au regime au a l’opinion publique l’idee de protester contre la grossierete ou la vulgarite des discours ou des articles, justes ou injustes.

‘Elle tolere meme le talent, a condition qu’il ne comporte pas l’ironie. Elle tolere celui qui la fustige, a condition que ce soit avec consideration. Mail il n’est pas jusgu’aux formes secondaires de la satire, le persiflage ou la parodie, qui ne lui paraissent condamnables et qu’elle ne s’ingenie a faire prende pour des delits de lese-humanite….

‘….la satire est un espion qui rit, et qui nous denonce, non aux autorites reconnues, ce qui serait legal, mais a tout ce et a tous ceux qui n’ont rien a voir dans l’affaire, aux jeunes gens, aux jeunes filles, a la saison, a la mode, et, par l’emploi de cette ironie proprement insupportable, dont l’autre joue est l’inspiration, qui nous donne l’impression d’etre juges par une autre race, moins serieuse que la notre.

‘C’est ce tribunal d’oiseaux, de lapins, de biches, institue jadis par Aristophane et notoirement incompetent en matiere civile, commerciale et internationale, que le monde entier s’occupe actuellement a recuser, dans la crainte peut-etre que surgisse le nouvel Aristophane…Le vieux est mort de rire en voyant un ane manger une figue de Barbarie. C’est bien fait…Que Leon-Paul Fargue reflechisse a cette triste fin, quand il nous regarde en riant manger la notre…’

> Good thing Mr. Giraudoux don’t live today – as I seem to recall that the New York Times recently (and INCREDIBLY) has banished the (satirical) cartoon from it’s pages!

The ‘modern barbarians’ are seemingly afraid of insulting the impostors?

3. UNE HISTOIRE VIVANTE DE LA LITTÉRATURE d’AUJOURD’HUI – 1939-1959. Par Pierre de BOISDEFFRE. PARIS, 1959, Le Livre Contemporain. 775 p., reliure pleine toile. (5 Kr)

From the inside flap of the dustcover:

‘Rien n’est plus difficile que d’ecrire une Histoire de la litterature contemporaine. On manque de recul pour juger la vraie dimension des ecrivains. On craint de froisser des amours-propres, d’obeir a des modes, a des idees preconcues.

‘M.Pierre de Boisdeffre a echappe a tous ces dangers. Meprisant les victoires faciles du denigrement et de la mechancete, il a donne a chaque ecrivain d’aujoud’hui sa vraie place…

‘Autant qu’une ‘Histoire Vivante’, il a ecrit une histoire equitable de la litterature d’aujourd’hui.’
(Paul Guth – Impromptu de Paris).

> Sounds good… Except, perhaps: Is there a TRUTH (vraie place) in literature? Here’s a short sample quote from the treatment of M. Jean Giraudoux (p.197f):

‘Jean Giraudoux s’etait eclipse discretement, a la veille de la Liberation. Personne n’avait mesure, sous l’etincelant revetement de ses propos, la gravite, le desespoir du moraliste….Et les creations posthumes – n’ont pas encore dissipe le malentendu qui pese sur une oeuvre moins legere qu’aigue.

‘Les dernieres annees de sa vie avaient desenchante le magicien. Le propagandiste s’etait montre impuissant a toucher les foules. Le diplomate avait quitte le Carriere sans occuper une ambassade. Le patriote constatait l’abaissement de son pays. Le pacifiste mourait en pleine guerre.

‘Giraudoux avait deja consigne ses deceptions dans SANS POUVOIRS et PLEINS POUVOIRS (dont on n’a pas assez loue la ferveur et la lucidite) et dit son espoir de voir un jour les villes et les campagnes francaises retrouver leur saveur et leur beaute.

‘Comme Saint-Exupery, comme Bernanos, il sentait venir l’avenement des robots et protestait contre la deshumanisation de la vie moderne.

‘Son pessimisme allait s’accentuant. Dans SODOME ET GOMORRHE (1943), il sonda la malediction du couple, avant de porter, dans LA FOLLE DE CHAILLOT (1944), sous le masque bariole d’une comedie poussee a la caricature, une condamnation irremediable de la societe contemporaine.

‘….Et sans doute etait-il conscient de n’avoir que peu d’attaches avec le reel puisqu’il denonce dans sa livre LITTERATURE (1941) – peut-etre le plus beau de ses livres – son peche mignon: une culture qui l’isole du peuple et l’en eloigne au moment meme ou il voudrait le retrouver….’

Another fine buy for 75 cents, it seems.

4. THE SYMBOLIC MEANING. By H.D.Lawrence. The Uncollected Versions Of Studies In Classic American Literature. Ed. by Armin Arnold; with a preface by Harry T. Moore. London, 1962, Centaur Press. 264 p. Hardcover, org. dust cover. (5 Kr)

From the front inside flap of the dustcover:

‘This is an unpublished book by D.H.Lawrence, and perhaps his best work of literary criticism.

‘In 1917, in a letter to his agent J.B. Pinkier, Lawrence mentions for the first time his plans for writing a series of essays on American literature.

‘Originally he intended to use them as lectures to be delivered in America; but he was unable to leave England at the time, and he thought of publishing the essays as a book, under the title: The Transcendental Element in American Literature. He completed it in June 1918….

‘They met with no response from the public, and Austin Harrison, the editor, did not print the last four.

‘Here, then, is the first version of the essays which were later published – and at the time, poorly received – as Studies in Classic American Literature…

‘It seems likely that these perceptive essays will at last assume their proper place and receive the recognition they deserve; Lawrence was not only a great novelist and poet, but one of the most remarkable critics of this century.’

Here are a few sample quotes from his interesing essay from 1918: THE SPIRIT OF PLACE. (p.16):

‘It is natural that we should regard American literature as a small branch or province of English literature. None the less there is another view to be taken.

‘The American artspeech contains a quality that we have not calculated. It has a suggestive force which is not relative to us, not inherent in the English race. This alien quality belongs to the American continent itself.

‘All art partakes of the Spirit of Place in which it is produced. The provincial Latin literature ferments with a foreign stimulus. It is Africa, and the mysterious religious passion of Lybia, which, voicing itself in Latin, utters the infant cry of Tertullian, Augustine, Athanasius, the great saints of the African Church.

‘These are not Romans. They are the prelude to a new era. It is not only that they utter the ideas which made Europe. Chiefly in them is felt the first throb of the great mystic passion of mediaeval life.

‘And in Apuleius, decadent and sensuous, we feel the last throb of the old way of sensuality, Babylon, Tyre, Carthage. Africa, seething in Roman veins, produces these strange pulses of new experience, incipient newness within the old decadence.

‘In the same way America, the new continent, seething in English veins, has produced us the familiar American classics, of Hawthorne, Poe, Whitman, or Fenimore Cooper, for example.

‘We read the English utterance without getting the alien American implication. We listen to our own speech in American mouths, but our ears have been shut to the strange reverberation of that speech.

‘We have not wanted to hear the undertone, the curious foreign, uncouth suggestion, which is in the over-cultured Hawthorne or Poe or Whitman. Augustine and Apuleius are both writers of the Roman decadence.

‘The orthodox Romans, do noubt, saw mainly the decadence, and objected to it. They could not see that the qualities which they called decadence, judging from the standards of Virgil and Cicero and Tacitus, were perhaps the incipient realities of a whole new era of experience.

‘It is time now, for us, who have always looked with indulgence on the decadent or uncouth or provincial American literature, to open new eyes, and look with respect, if not with fear.

‘It is time for us now to see that our great race experience is surpassed and exceeded. Our race idea may apparently hold good in the American mind. What we have to realise is that our way of feeling is superseded, just as Cicero’s way of feeling was superseded in Apuleius.

‘It is the quality of life-experience, of emotion and passion and desire, which has changed in the Romans of Africa, and in the English-speaking Americans. Life itself takes on a new reality, a new motion, even while the idea remains ostensible the same…

(p.24)
‘For, if we consider the early American colonies, the Pilgrim Fathers were not Christians at all – not in any reasonable sense of the word. They were no more Christians than the dark and violent Spaniards of the Inquisition were Christian.

‘At the close of the fifteenth century Spain fell back from Christian Europe and became a thing apart. In the same way the first Americans departed from the Christian and the European vital mystery.

‘They became dark, sinister, repellent. They seemed to seek, not liberty, but a gloomy and tyrannical sense of power. They wanted to have power over all immediate life.

‘They had a gloomy passion, similar to that of some of the African sects of the Early Christian Church, to destroy or mutilate life at its very quick, lusting in their dark power to annihilate all living impulses, both their own and those of their neighbour.

‘For all of which the Christian religion served as a word, a weapon, an instrument: the instrument of their dark lust for power over the immediate life itself, as it stirred to motion in the breasts and bowels of the living….

(p.26)
‘Whereas, if we have one spark of sanity, we know that we can never possess and direct the life-mystery. The utmost of our power is to possess and destroy.

‘The life-mystery precedes us. Our simplest spontaneous movement precedes all knowing and willing. Secondly, and afterwards, we are conscious, we have voluntary control.

‘Our knowing is always secondary and subsequent to our being, which is an issue of the creative unknown. And our volition is always subsidiary to our spontaneous arrival.

(p.27)
‘The great field for the lust of control in the modern world is America. Whether we read the history of Spanish America or of English-speaking America, it is the same, a disheartening, painful record of the lusting triumph of the deliberate will.

‘On the one hand, the Spaniards in America, following the Spaniards of the Inquisition, lusted in the overweening sensual desire for repression of freedom in the spiritual self, whereas the North Americans lusted spiritually for utter repression in the sensual or passional self….

‘…The spondaneous passion of social union once destroyed, then it was possible to establish the perfect mechanical concord, the concord of a number of parts to a vast whole, a stupendous productive mechanism.

‘And this, this vast mechanical concord of innumerable machine-parts, each performing its own motion in the intricate complexity of material production, this is the clue to the western democracy.

‘It has taken more than three hundred years to build this vast living machine. It has taken just as long to produce the modern Mexican, a creature of incomprehensible sensual reactions, barely human any longer…

‘…After only two generation in New England the first Yankeed noticed that their stock had changed. The sturdy, ruddy, lusty English yeoman had disappeared, the long-jawed, sallow American took his place, with a pale, nervous women-folk such as England has only lately begun to reckon with.

‘Uprooted from the native soil, planted in strong aboriginal earth, this thing happened to the English stock. The natural impulsive being withered, the deliberate, self-determined being appeared in his place.

‘There was soon no more need to militate directly against the impulsive body. This once dispatched, man could attend to the deliberate perfection in mechanised exisence. This is what makes good business men. And in this the American is like the Jew: in that, having conquered and destroyed the instinctive, impulsive being in himself, he is free to be always deliberate, always calculated, rapid, swift, and single in practical execution as a machine.

‘The perfection of machine trimphs, of deliberate self-determined motion, is to be found in the Americans and the Jews. Hence the race talent for acting. In other races the impulsive mystery of being interferes with the deliberate intention of the individual. In these not.

‘Only, Americans and Jews suffer from a torturing frictional unease, an incapacity to rest. They must run on, like machines, or go mad. The only difference between a human machine and an iron machine is that the latter can come to an utter state of rest, the former cannot.

‘No living thing can lapse into static inertia, as a machine at rest lapses. And this is where life is indomitable. It will be mechanised, but it will never allow mechanical inertia. Hence the Orestes-like flight of unrest of Americans and Jews.’

> A few notes: Firstly the above is only sample extracts, which no doubt makes for a less meaningful read.

Second: The essay brings to mind an equally polemic book from 1923, THE CONTRAST, by Hillaire Belloc. The French born British author Belloc (1870-1953) likewise endeavours to paint the soul of the American Land as different from (and almost incomprehensible to?) the UK.

Third: Perhaps Lawrence was also influenced to some degree by the great economic historian Werner Sombart (1863-1941), that in his massive Economic History from 1902, ‘Der Moderne Kapitalismus’ (MODERN CAPITALISM), asserts that ‘America is in all it’s part a Jewish Country’. It should perhaps be noted here, that Sombart was a great admirer of the Jews (and their business acumen).

Fourth: Lawrence propounds the view that the ‘modern’ Americans are basically (living) ‘machines’. In other words, what he tries to delineate, although in a quite roundabout way typical of his generation, is a people with subdued right half-brain functions: They are mostly left-brainers, tending towards being ‘machines’ or robots.

The mainstream view of the period was, I suppose, that of Dr. Freud and his associates: It is suppressed eroticism that make humans act ‘unnaturally’?

Hence Lawrence’s proposition that the Jew’s circumcision and the New Englander’s soaking up the soul of the American lands resulted in suppression of eros and strengthning of the will (the so-called ‘will’ being based on the computations of the left-brain and not the intuition and/or empathy of the right-brain).

It would hardly be fair to have expected Lawrence to see through the ubiquitous flim-flam of Dr. Freud et al and realize, that it’s the suppression and/or malfunctioning of the right-side characteristics of the human brain, those of empathy and intuition, and not in particular of the eros, that’s the culprit – making humans tending to behave like ‘machines’ or robots (Link 1).

One of the ‘spiritual’ movements coming most in vogue in this period seem to have advanced their mission using the same fallacious logic as (more or less) formulated by Mr. Lawrence (and Dr. Freud). I have in mind the cult of Tantric Sex-Magic as propounded by Mr. Crowley and his ilk.

Their rituals soon degraded into blatant Satanism. Half a century later it’s most successful missionary perhaps was Mr. Anton Levy (writing under the name of Anton LaVey), the prolific american author and very successful founder of his own Church of Satanism in California.

The Satanists’ overindulgence in more or less perverse ritual sex is combined with their blatantly left-brain servitude or even enslavement (they name it ‘Choosing The Left Path’). Hence their cult activities (reportedly) without a trace of empathy – death, torture and licentious sex?

Their philosophy being, briefly, that arousal of the sexual energies makes you behave more ‘natural’. The fallacy in their logic? If you have choosen ‘The Left Path’ – let the left half-brain dominate you – sex or not is of little avail for the soundness or morality of your demeanour.

Without empathy there can be no true morality. And destitute of genuine morality Earthlings will never be able to navigate and survive in a dangerous, unforgiving Universe.

5. VOYAGE EN ITALIE – 1739-1740. Par Président de Brosses. Nouvelle édition préfacée et annotée par HUBERT JUIN. Le Livre Club du Libraire. 1964. 294 p. Hardcover with org. dustcover. (10 Kr)

The author, ‘comte de Tournay, baron de Montfalcon, dit President de Brosses’ was born in Dijon 1709, died 1777.

He was a prominent man of letters, author and expert historian on Italian early middle age.

His letters from travelling in Italy with several aristocratic friends 1739-1740 has been published in several editions.

This one volume edition is the most accessible, no doubt, but nevertheless not unattractive. The French Wikipedia mentions several editions of his letters, but curiously don’t mention this particular edition with one word.

In fact it’s both beautifully printed, bound and illustrated, although the paper quality is somewhat uneven throughout the book.

Here’s a small sample quote from page 223:

‘La nouvelle qui, sans doute, vous occupe beaucoup aujourd’hui a Dijon, ne fait pas moins de bruit a Rome.

‘Hier j’etais a souper au palais (ambassade) de France, chez madame Detroy, lorsqu’on vint me dire a une heure et demie apres minuit, que l’on demandait a me parler de la part de M. l’ambassadeur.

‘Ce message presse me surprit a une telle heure. Son secretaire du Brocard, entra, et me dit d’un air fort triste, que M. l’ambassadeur venait d’apprende par un courrier expres la nouvelle de la mort de M. le duc, notre gouverneur; puis il ajouta d’un air tres joyeux, que le gouvernement de Bourgogne avait ete donne au duc de Saint-Aignan, et que celui-ci, ne doutant pas de tout le plaisir que me ferait ce remplacement, l’avait sur-le-champ envoye pour me chercher et m’en faire part.

‘Nous avons ete ce matin, en corps, faire compliment a son excellence. Vous ne sauriez croire combien il est satisfait de se voir si bien place au sortir d’ici, et la joie que lui a donnee cette circonstance d’avoir, en ce moment meme a rome, six gentilshommes de son gouvernement.’

6. LA SOCIÉTÉ DU SECOND EMPIRE. Par Comte FLEURY & Louis SONOLET. Tome 4: 1867-1870. D’après les Mémoires contemporains et des documents nouveaux. Ill. (no date). 536 p. Soft cover. Ill. (10 Kr)

This is the fourth and last volume of this (reportedly) ‘major work’. Our specimen is rather well preserved and the pages uncut.

There is an extensive table of contents of the 15 chapters in the back of the volume.

Chapter 4 – ‘Les maîtres de la Science et de la Pensée’ treats of Littré, Renan, Taine and Pasteur – about ten pages each.

Here’s a sample quote from the piece about Littré, pp.290-1.

‘Partout, a la campagne aussi bien qu’a Paris, il assumait le meme formidable labeur, partout il distribuait ses heures avec la meme rigoureuse precision dans leur emploi.

‘Il se levait a huit heures. ‘Pendant, raconte-t-il, qu’on faisait ma chambre a coucher qui etait en meme temps mon cabinet de travail, je descendais au rez-de-chaussee, emportant quelque travail.

‘C’est ainsi que je fis, entre autres, la preface de mon dictionnaire. Le chancelier d’Aguesseau m’avait appris a ne pas dedaigner des moments qui paraissaient sans emploi, que sa femme inexacte faisait toujours attendre pour le diner et qui, lui presentant un livre, lui dit: ‘Voila l’oeuvre des avant-diners’.

‘A neuf heures envoyees par l’imprimeur. D’une heure a trois il assurait sa collaboration au Journal des Savants. De trois a six, il s’occupait de son grand dictionnaire. A six heures il s’asseyait devant un diner toujours pret, mangeait tres legerement, puis revenait au dictionnaire qu’il ne lachait plus.

‘Un premier relai le menait jusqu’a minuit, heure ou le quittaient sa femme et sa fille, un second jusqu’a trois heures du matin.

‘C’etait le terme qu’il s’etait fixe, mais souvent, quand la besogne n’etait pas finie, il continuait jusqu’a l’aube.

C’est avec cet horaire inflexible que Littre vint a bout de la tache quasi surhumaine que lui imposait la composition de son DICTIONNAIRE DE LA LANGUE FRANCAISE, monument gigantesque dont le premier volume parut en 1863.

‘Il avait tout prevu pour le mener a bonne fin sans l’aide de personne. Peu de temps apres la publication de ce premier volume, une forte bronchite l’avait inquite sur son etat de sante.

‘En consequence de cette alarme, son admirable conscience s’interrogea. ‘J’ai 60 ans, se dit-il, j’ai encore pres de dix ans devant moi. Combien de temps me faut-it pour achever mon dictionnaire? Combien d’heures par jour devrai-je travailler puour arriver au but que je me suit propose?’

‘Il fit som compte mathematiquement, trouva qu’il ne lui fallait pas moins de treize heures par jour et courageusement, avec une volonte jamais flechissante, il s’astreignit jusqu’a sa mort a une aussi rude obligation.’

> Littré’s five-volume dictionnaire is in fact a monumental work. The volumes are in folio, each volume in average corresponding to four volumes of ordinary dictionary size with at least 500 pages. Which makes for an ordinary 16 to 20-volume lexicon!

Mossad Safe Space & War on Iran? (updated)

Today let’s take a look at a couple of my most recent tweets (www.twitter.com/gamleboeger; may be slightly amended). As usual the asterix * indicates the tweet and a chevron > my comment.

* (20.7.2019) Mossad SafeSpace and War on Iran? I wonder if war on Iran is scheduled to concur with Mossad moving-in downstairs sometime betw. now and Aug.1.?

* (20.7.2019)Mossad SafeSpace & War on Iran? If so this might explain clairvoyant vision this Wednesday (17.7.)- Saw giant black bomb falling my general way without quite hitting. Decoded: Giant bomb meant for Iran but indirectly also for myself?

* (23.7.2019) This AM in clairvoyant vision saw my niece hanging with her head down. Obviously the DeepState psychos plan to perhaps have her kidnapped? The DeepState power brokers are in fact Robots! (link 2) – and love to have their SecretService kill or torture the completely innocent! Why? Because it makes the Robots feel superior to humans. Humans have empathy and cannot kill or torture the innocent!

> Another reason for the US to wage war on Iran soon could be the spectacular case of the ‘LolitaExpress’ now perhaps quickly nearing a peliminary denouement in NewYork and Florida.

Lots of very powerful people in the Western Hemisphere would certainly want this case to be firmly relegated to the shadows, perhaps even under the black clouds of a catastrophic war?

But without endorsement from Congress the US Govt. can hardly start an arbitrary war of agression on Iran. Could it be that Mossad and their friends are busting, and thus sacrifying, their immeasurably valuable blackmail asset, the ‘LolitaExpress’ and the ‘LolitaIsland’ to induce Congress to approve the war?

The deal would be, that as soon as war is approved by Congress the iconic leader of the blackmail operation will be ‘disappeared’ (preferably spirited away from the US to IL by Mossad and their friends; or, perhaps less credible, in worst case scenario be ‘suicided’ in prison?). The case would then collapse.

Conversely, if Congress don’t approve war on Iran the LolitaExpress and all the prominent guests will be busted wide open, somewhat like an Samson-Option?

I fear my nightly vision of the giant, black bomb falling should perhaps not be dismissed too quickly? Keep in mind that IL wants to create holocaust on Iran – and want it badly?

By the way it seems to me that Mossad and their friends has suddenly become quite cocky and carefree in their demeanour here in Copenhagen. Of course you have to wonder if this is because Denmark has got a brand new Government less than one month ago?

Could it by any chance be that the new Government strong-man has an intense personal interest in someone making me silent, and fast?

Compare, for example, what I wrote here
http://www.gamleboeger.dk/2017/07/28/spooky-times-seriality-or-jakuza/ (and more – Link 10).

Below is what I posted on July 1. (slightly amended July 2. and today).

(1.July.2019) Today is Monday and it’s nice out there. They say it’s the African ‘föhn’ from Sahara that’s been hitting much of Europe hard this last week. But today is a very nice Danish summer day with 22 Deg.C and a little bit windy.

When I left my flat this morning there was kind of a micro-drama playing out in front of our appartment house.

The City Council had put up signs at the sidewalk saying that parking today was prohibitet at some 50 feet of the kerb. But regardless someone had parked a small car.

Just when I exited the front door a giant flat-bed truck with a ‘caravan-house’ on it came around the corner; but to no avail, it had to move on without being able to unload.

I noticed the signs yesterday, but off hand thought the parking space might possibly be needed for movers, as the flat directly below mine is empty and has been empty for most of June.

Monday the 3rd of June I heard voices in our courtyard that for some reason made me look down into the court from my north window.

What I saw was our landlord coming from the far (northern) part of our lot and being accompanied by an athletic and professional looking gentleman with a wad of paper under his arm.

Seconds later they both looked up seemingly inspecting my north window (or perchance just above or below my third storey flat). They only inspected the east end of the building (where I live).

A few minutes later they had moved to the south side, the street side of the house. After having talked shortly they shook hands and the landlord drove away.

The gentleman then took some photographs of the south face of our building from the opposite sidewalk. Soon after he left, but I didn’t see his car (Incidentally – Mossad probably wouldn’t come by car?)

Off hand he looked much like a real estate broker, I think, but he may also have been some sort of a technician, of course (like a Mossad technician, perhaps?).

But there was also, in retrospect, a certain scent of staged event about it, like it was played according to a script. Was it in fact sort of a false flag?

(I want here to once more stress my view (like propounded before), that no doubt our landlord is in no way maliciously conspiring to have me evicted, or worse. She is simply not the conspiracy-type. On the other hand she may most likely be quite easily manipulated (without her own knowledge, ofcourse) – like most Danish people are quite clueless and easily manipulated?).

A few days later (June 7 & 8) the two young women living downstairs moved out, and the flat directly below me has been vacant since that. Slightly curious that they moved out ‘in the middle of a month’, perhaps? Were someone suddenly in a hurry to free the flat? (- for Mossad to take over?).

Incidentally this is or at least may well turn out to be bad news for me, as it could possibly mean the flat below may soon come on the market for sale as a condo? Why is this possibly or even likely bad or even very bad news for myself?

Simply this: The flat (or even the whole building?) may perchance be scheduled – in underhanded and hidden ways, even for our landlord – to be sold to (or just rented to) Mossad or their friends? And why is that, you may ask.

The thing is there may have been certain signs of an old grudge of the owners toward the undersigned?

If this is so I frankly doubt this would emanate from the owners themselves – a millionaire or even billionaire family? However, they may ofcourse have been manipulated?

I’ve already on a few occasions reported about curious coincidences that eventually got me thinking about possible underground networks.

Firstly there was the odd observation that the new owners knew me by sight before having ever met me. Which I happened to note the day they introduced themselves to the tenants just after having bought the house, now abt. a decade ago.

Did these honourable people really buy – or were tasked with or manipulated into buying – the house partly or even mostly just to harass myself? (Remember: My blog is or has been read by some of the top power- and money-brokers in the world; and some of them – ‘the powerful DeepState psychos’ (link 8) – obviously hate my guts!). (Note 1)

Secondly there was the – on the face of it – strange history of the seemingly imperfect fire protection of our newly refurbished house (abt. five years ago, Link 1, in Danish).

And thirdly there was the equally strange coincidence of a clairvoyant dream saying I was to be evicted and then me by chance looking out of the window and seeing the owners just leaving the premises:

* “On Mar6.2018 in late AM had vision of man making scorecard over me as in #trial. Every score negative. I said ‘It’s a murder plot’, then woke up. 3min later heard/saw ownerfamily leaving backhouse with wad of papers. Is evil people plotting to have me evicted?” (www.twitter.com/gamleboeger)

> There is perhaps no reason doubting that several of my recent blogposts have made the DeepState irate or even livid with rage. Just compare these few links (Link 3).

Now, the thing is that Mossad and their friends may have tried almost everything to have me assassinated or ‘disappeared’ – and until now to no avail, obviously. (Link 4).

Realistically there seem to be perchance two venues left? One – to have the Mossad-controlled(?) underground mafia on our hospitals activated to assassinate myself when I eventually have to be hospitalized to be operated for my hernia? (Link 5)

Two – to have Mossad or their friends by underhanded ways acquire the flat directly below myself. Why would this be deemed especially auspicious by the mob?

For this: a) to be able to harass myself with loud and noisy ‘music’ (Link 6) b) to harass with ultrasound – possibly deadly? c) to harass with microwave radiation – possibly deadly? d) to harass, target and hit with psychic attacs – much stronger and dangerous if only one or two feet from f.i. my bed? (In this respect the flat below is much more applicable than the flat directly above)(Link 7) e) to be able to stake out hitmen so as to prevent me from leaving my flat without the possibility of being kidnapped or assassinated. f) for all sorts of close surveillance g) possibly other means.

Note 1 (2.July)
Tonite I had a dream-vision about someone criticizing me for not studying an issue adequately before throwing myself at the keyboard.

How right this or these honourable critics are! But this is one of the deplorable consequences of standing alone against an army.

(The former Mossad-agent, the whistle-blower hero Victor Ostrovsky, tells about sayanim in his book ‘By Way of Deception’, – that there were then (1990) ca. 7000 sayanim (active and stand-by) in London alone (i.e. abt. 1 promille of the population?); that would correspond to abt. 1500 in greater Copenhagen.

His book dealt not least with Mossad having infiltrated the Danish Secret Service. There was a parlamentarian crisis, but the then M.o.J. clamped down hard on a clueless parliament by threatening to discharge the Control Commission of Parliament(!). He is now a prominent guardian of our democracy as a well known main stream newspaper columnist.)

Standing alone you cannot allow this army to get altogether too close, if you can help it – could be your downfall. Hence an essential plan of action for you is to always be extremely vigilant; if extreme vigilance don’t help, perhaps nothing will?

Nevertheless I agree that I should at least briefly have mentioned this:

The former owner of our house, Mr. E.L., firmly believed he was almost fatally poisoned while in hospital abt. three years before he died.

Some irresponsible hospital doctor(s) had persuaded him to take part in a test of a certain (very poisonous) heart medicine.

He was then in his late seventies and had never had heart-problems, he told me.

He soon felt wery unwell and decided to withdraw from the experiment.

As it turned out he had been overdosed by several hundred percent (!) of this very poisonous heart medicine. In fact he said it was so poisonous, that it would take several years just to step down to normal dose; a dose he didn’t need in the first place.

A doctor reportedly was fired and the head doctor ‘threatened’ to retire if the calamity ever hit the newspapers (note 2).

I agree I should have mentioned this occurence in connection with the appartment house getting new owners. If only because it has never been disproved that dark forces may have wanted to precipitate new ownership of our building?

Note 2.
Clever ruse to remove focus from the more natural option of contacting the ‘Homicide Squad’ – perhaps?

But of small avail anyway, as Police never – like in NEVER – investigates ‘unnecessary deaths’ in our hospitals – if they can help it, that is. But for all we know there might easily occur several hundred (and perhaps thousands?) of cold blooded assassinations p.a. in Danish hospitals alone?

For example, if you assume 750 assassinations each year in Danish hospitals, this would amount to only 2 each day; and hundreds of ‘dark operators’ in the health industry could probably easily accomplish that without anybody batting an eyelash?

Perhaps a few readers remember that the then medical director of Hvidovre Hospital (in greater Copenhagen), the honourable Dr. Mogensen, and his equally honourable female associate (whose name elopes me) abt. 10 years ago propounded the belief that ca. 5000 patients died unnecessarily (and ofcourse uninvestigated by police) in Danish hospitals each year?

Of course this gentleman is no longer director in said hospital! (Here are some of my own experiences, likewise roughly 10 years ago (link 9)).

But why is it, that Police never, ever investigates deaths in our hospitals – willingly?

Simply this: Mossad and their friends won’t allow it!

It’s an incredibly valuable asset for any DeepState controlled SecretService to have access to the option of assassinating ANYONE, ANYTIME in ANY (Danish) hospital.

It’s dead-sure (pardon the pun) and safe without the perpetrators really risking anything at all – and certainly not disclosure!

Basically there are perhaps five venues for the DeepState to subdue critics:

a) Throw a scare into them. Often done by intimidating, harassing, hurting or killing/kidnapping friends and/or family. In fact, as things are now – with basically no law enforcement or security (or justice?) for the average man, not to speak of the poor – and if you want to stand up to the Deep State you can have no family of your own!

Otherwise you are especially phrone to Blackmail. Incidentally most people – almost everyone – are clueless enough to accept blackmail. Yes – you have to accept it – to play the game; otherwise it won’t work (First rule: Never read their letters!). And often you don’t get anything in return for giving in or paying up, anyway!

b) Isolate the target. Harass all his activities, including his business, his interaction with government agencies (like making letters evaporate and pensions disppear into thin air), harass his friends and family in any conceivable way, vandalize his car incl. stealing the licence plates repeatedly, gps-chip his car and bike, and so on and so forth. All this is perhaps most often done with the local SecretService aiding and abetting the perpetrators?

c) Kill or kidnap the target critic by ‘ordinary’ hit teams. May comprise a single agent or a small army. If you are not both a bit lucky and also very intuitive with a strong sixt sense you are probably dead meat. No doubt Mossad is now the unsurpassed master in setting up hit teams:
The Putsch and the Hit-Squad

d) To have you assassinated in hospital or by (one of) your doctor(s); I’ve experienced at least two ‘cooperating’ doctors and a couple of hospital set-ups; only escaped the hospital set-ups by being warned clairvoyantly.

e) As the (normally) last recourse they have their master-mentalists / black magicians by ‘remote hypnosis’ attack you psychically in your sleep – like it tragically occured to the wife of a former Danish foreign minister a few years ago:

CHARLIE HEBDO OR DEATH BY BLACK MAGIC?

Personally I’ve been attacked viciously by some very expert mentalists/black magicians half a dozen times; I believe that at least 99% of you would not have lived to tell about it? Especially one very clever attack was memorable in so far as some of my ‘associates’ seemed VERY surprised I had survived and didn’t even look scared. (Yes – that’s right, I can give you names; if not of the actual perpetrators then at least of a few persons in the know (although most may now be deceased)).

But would an attempt to assassinate the wife of an acting foreign minister interest the police even remotely? No – ofcourse not; they are busy handing out traffic tickets.

Wozniak’s Facebook – Censure In Denmark – War On Iran? (updated)

Today is Sunday and even if it’s mostly cloudy it’s really nice and friendly here in downtown Copenhagen.

I would line to take a quick look on some of my recent tweets (may not yet be posted. The asterix * indicates the tweet while a chevron > indicates my comment).

* Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says you should get off Facebook because ‘there’s almost no way to stop’ companies from spying on your habits
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-7225593/Apple-founder-Steve-Wozniak-says-Facebook.html

* Big Government and Big Tech Are Partnering to Track Us Everywhere

Big Government and Big Tech Are Partnering to Track Us Everywhere

* Google Is America’s Number One National Security Threat:Big Tech Social Media does not want to break the law, they seek to unilaterally create the law
https://thecommonsenseshow.com/agenda-21-conspiracy-education/google-americas-number-one-national-security-threat

> I guess you should listen to a warning from a man like Wozniak? I also suspect, however, that nary a soul will heed the warning?

Perhaps the problem for most people is they don’t understand that these giant corporations – also called BigTech – are NOT in business to help you?

But on the contrary, they are often in fact doing business to enrich themselves and often no matter if it hurts you or not?

And especially that most user – or rather nearly all users? – have no idea that BigTech may in fact have a hidden agenda to enslave you?

If this is not the case, why would a man like Wozniak warn us as starkly as he apparently does?

Perhaps we can most conveniently learn something about the business philosophy of BigTech from the modus operandi of the big banks and their helicopter money?

The Central Banks – and especially the US-Fed and the EU-ECB – want you to believe that ‘printing’ Dollars and Euros to the tune of trillions is done to help you – the citizen – and your country.

But it isn’t – here’s the lowdown:

Imagine you are living in a (very) small city-state with only a couple of hundred houses, more or less. This city-state of course has it’s own currency.

Now, a small shopholder, perhaps by sly and devious machinations has usurped the right to print the city-state’s currency at his discretion, using the money printing press, conveniently installed in his garden shed.

Being very greedy and also very clever he then schemes to eventually own all property in this little city enclave. How come, you ask.

Simple: He just prints money galore. The money printing machine in the garden shed runs full bore day and night.

So when a property is up for sale in the city, he can lend any amount to all potential buyers. The funds loaned are almost for free as the interest is only 1%, or less, and there is seemingly almost no payback.

That is, only seemingly: The loan is not a gift (I know for a fact this is hard to understand for some people), it IS a loan and it HAS to be paid back – some day.

But it may eventually, in many cases, take almost your whole life to pay the loan back. Thus you are already now to some degree really a debt slave.

Soon it will be ‘more’, for in the meantime the ‘helicopter money’ has eventually raised property prices to ten times what they were before the sly money printer got going.

But that doesn’t matter, you say, as the funds are nearly interest free, and the pay back rates very lenient. So why worry?

Only you are now, in fact, a true and legit debt slave. You will in most cases NEVER be able to pay back your loans. Your children and grandchildren will NEVER be able to both de jure and de facto own a house.

Thus you are not really owning your property and your home. The money printer is de facto, if not de jure, owning your house. And it takes just a small amendment to the law of your (corrupt?) small city state to take your ownership away – as it’s not really yours any more in the first place.

Also perhaps the money printer suddenly raises interests on his loans to five (or even ten) times as much. Which means sellers of property cannot sell their houses (note 1), and if they for some reason HAVE to sell, their houses may get auctioned off for a pittance.

The buyer will often be the money printing gentleman, awash in almost for free money.

Still think the banks are peddling their cheap money – money, that are in fact, if not de jure, counterfeit money, as there is not concurrently created assets to back it – to help you?

* Denmark says it plans to regulate popular influencers after an Instagram star posted a suicide note online.
The influencer, Fie Laursen, posted the note on Instagram, where she has more than 336,000 followers.

* Minister of Children and Education Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil told the BBC that the government wanted influencers to have an “editorial responsibility” in line with the standards of the “old press”.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48928012

* Rosenkrantz-Theil proposes the formation of a governmental board to enforce such rules which would be granted the authority to remove material in breach of whatever guidelines were created.
https://www.rt.com/news/463850-denmark-social-media-regulation-suicide/

* The politician outlined a scenario whereby the influencers would have to designate three people to have the password for their accounts. “These people can then remove a post if they believe it violates the press ethics even though it was the blogger that posted it,” the minister explaine
https://www.rt.com/news/463850-denmark-social-media-regulation-suicide/

* The proposed Press Board would be afforded the right to criticize and ultimately, to censor, offending posts that broke any potential ethical guidelines. In order to make the somewhat far-fetched idea more feasible, it would be limited to govern those with more than 5,000 followers.

* UN Launches All-Out War On Free Speech

> Apparently Danish Governments have now mostly become horrible, clueless DeepState puppets: No decency, no morals and no spine?

They seem to like to do whatever the DeepState demands or is believed to want from them.

And in particular they obviously like to always use any and all possible reasons, even the most farfetched, to spy on and harshly censure the alternative media – the bloggers, tweeters, facebook’ers etc.

The above (insane?) woman minister said she wanted every blogger, tweeter etc with more than 5000 followers to share her/his access code with three people, to make it possible to delete anything deemed inappropiate by the censure board? Crazy indeed!

Do we perchance discern the fine Italian hand of the new strong Microsoft-man in our new Govt.? BigTech hates independent bloggers!

Shame on the haters of the free word and the constitution.

> I think you may perhaps appropiately headline the Epstein saga now playing out the ‘WAR OF THE TITANS’.

Admittedly it is well nigh impossible for an ordinary body sitting several thousand miles away to get a clear view of that saga playing out. As it probably is for most everybody.

But the penultimate of above tweets – about the black out in NewYork yesterday – makes me believe this cataclysmic fight may perhaps most likely be about War on Iran – or not?

As I see it the present US-Government are leaning heavily on the Israeli government for advice in foreign policy. Or perhaps more accurately – the IL is leaning hard on the US?

In this case there would most likely be a tremendous pressure on Trump to bomb Iran?

On the other hand I suspect that leading bankers in WallStreet and in London DO NOT now want war on Iran? Simply because that might easily crash the world economy. The feared trigger many say could do just that.

In this case the Epstein saga might have been dug out of the closet – as in fact it was – to apply pressure on the US-government to not attack Iran.

This interpretation seems most likely to me, but obviously the picture is extremely hazy, at least as seen from the Copenhagen café I’m writing this.

However the NYC black out tend to support my view, obviously. This is because the black out occured exactly – to the day – on the anniversary of the (much larger) black out in 1977.

Of course the coincidence theorists my disagree with me; but it seems that for Mossad to threaten WallStreet openly and blatantly there must be some real strong wills at odds?

The Putsch and the Hit-Squad (updated)

Today is Friday ‘et il fait beau’ out there. Sunny with clouds, a bit windy and about 25 deg.C. Almost a perfect summer day for an elderly Danish body like myself.

This Wednesday I enjoyed one of the rare visits by my old friend and colleague Frank N., now retired and often living i Lisboa with his Patagonian girlfriend.

Frank is a thoughtful guy who likes his books. And as my living room is plastered with books everywhere this augurs for a bit of conflict.

How come, you ask, cannot you talk about your books in a civilized manner?

Yes and no. The thing is my room is and for at least a decade has been TIGHTLY surveilled and bugged by the SecretPolice/SecretService (Danish or alien – remember, please, that my blogs have been heard about or seen and perhaps even read by some of our top power brokers, the ‘Alien Masters of the Galaxy’!).

This means I have a certain reluctance and even aversion to discussing the books I’m presently reading and also occasionally some of the titles generally regarded as more outlandish.

And why is that, you may ask?

Well – you have to realize that the people listening in on what is said (and written on pc) in my flat are quite clever; not really as clever as they think they are, but quite clever nevertheless.

So when someone grabs a book off a table or shelf and starts asking or commenting on it, these eavesdroppers instantly think this book or title is just precisely what I’m preoccupied and working with just now.

This may ofcourse be the case, although often it’s not. But signals are sent and received and decoded by the SecretService(s) and that may have repercussions on my future life in an irritating, detrimental or even harmful way.

These freaks are just thirsting for ANY excuse and fig leaf to harass and hurt you.

Then you also have to know that most of my friends are from the world of photography.

This means they are almost exclusively left brain dominated types. What does this mean? (Link 1)

It means they mostly, or almost exclusively, see the world in two dimensions.

They see the surface but not what’s below.

Another of my old friends is a very giftet photographer but who has also manifest autistic qualities.

He’s a genius at photographing people, f.i. scantily clad women, exactly because he sees them as graphic, two dimensional art objects and not as humans. The result is often brilliant, two dimensional graphic art.

But if you try and explain that there is anything below the surface – be it of the outer world in general, or the face or the talk of a human, or the tv-screen, or newspaper print, or in politics or anywhere else – you hit a wall. It’s simply not possible – they don’t fathom one word of what you say, but suspect you have gone crazy.

And here’s the potential conflict, of course. Because I really can’t explain to my guests why I don’t want to discuss my books with them; that our signals sent, received and decoded may well be causing at the very least quite irritating harassments.

At about 9 p.m. I took Frank to the Metro. I basically don’t carry a cell- or smart-phone – It’s simply too dangerous. The SecretService-mob (and, yes, it’s THE mob!) knows my usual hunts and if helped with just a few hints from GPS positioning etc. of my cellphone, they’ll in most cases be able to prefigure my route the next few hours and thus be able to stake out hit-squads one or more places. Like this evening!

I’m worrying too much, you say? All right, but what about this?

Frank of course carries a smart-phone at all times. I believe it’s never occured to him that he may be surveilled and eavesdropped on and it would be to no awail to try and explain to him that this might be important.

But when I walked home from the Frederiksberg Metro station this happened:

About half way home, on GodthaabsVej, I happened to suddenly turn around. I then saw I was followed by a young man (about twenty?) on an el-scooter.

It would be too longwinded to explain in detail why he raised my suspicion; but I instantly crossed the street to the North side. The young man on the scooter then stopped dead and used his smartphone.

About 150 yards west I reached a traffic-light regulated crossing where I had to go north, down Kpr.SofiesVej.

Normally I would at once cross to the west side of this steet. But today my sixth sense made me wary, whence I stayed on the east side.

This probably saved me. Because halfway down the street I oogled this astonishing spectacle:

On the opposite – West – side of K.S.Vej there were parked two newish, large cars. Both had their motor running and the rear one had a large, dark colored and anonymous box-trailer.

To the traffic side of, and leaning on the front mudguard of the first car two large, youngish men were standing close together, being busy fondling each other.

Quite spectacular – you can’t make this sh*t up – only Mossad can?

Had I, as I’m wont to, taken the west side of K.S.Vej I would have had to pass by very close to the large box trailer, large enough to easily hold two or three agents. And the two cosy gentlemen-agents at the first car were probably supposed to make me feel safe – and eventually block my escape?

Mossad hit-squads are always dangerous, and probably only my – luckyly well-developed – sixth sense once more saved the day.

What’s a bit annoying here is that I’m of course unable to tell off hand if this acute zeal of Mossad (and/or their friends) – except for a recent blog post (Link 2) that’s probably annoying for the DeepState underground – is by reason of wishing to provoke me into uncouth outbursts of anger at our new Govt. on my twitter- and blog-accounts?

Or are Mossad and their friends suddenly feeling very safe and cocky with Denmark having a brand new government?

This leads us to our next topic – Denmark’s new government.

In the café where I’m writing this there’s an issue of today’s EKSTRABLADET lieing around, one of the two large tabloids in Copenhagen.

Most of the front page and three whole pages inside are dealing with the new PM, or rather her chief spindoctor.

And yes, there are one chief spindoctor and two more assisting Rasputins.

This chief spin doctor seems to be an interesting type. But what off hand is really most interesting about this newspaper report is the edit – really quite incredible.

All three inside pages are used to only tell this:

The chief spin doctor in question is a) power hungry (in the extreme?) and b) he’s a control freak.

That’s it, not a word – nay, not ONE word – about what this power grabber WANTS.

Like what does he think and believe and what does he want with all this power. In short – what’s his mission?

You also get to know he’s a doctor from Aarhus University, and that he began in politics working in the Social Democratic Youth organisation before being promoted to the main party organisation.

Also that he’s been persuing careers in large international corporations like TDC, Radius and Microsoft-Denmark.

Questions that might have been asked: Is he a big-tech man? Is he a CIA-man – US big-tech is often said to be CIA puppets, more or less.

Questions perhaps not without merit as he will now, as chief of staff for the PM, be at the controls of the Danish Secret Police and Secret Services.

One interesting, recent tidbit not noticed, I suspect, by anyone in the sleepy Danish newsworld:

One of the first days of June, before having actually won the general election, our (then) coming PM had her picture – starkly glamorized? – right smack in the middle of the major US-american newssite, the Drudge Report (link 3).

Mr. Drudge is, I believe, orthodox yewish, and of course a major supporter of Israel and US-american supremacy ideology?

Our coming, young Social Democratic PM being endorsed by the Drudge has to be quite unusual, even if she’s young and pretty – at least I don’t remember something like it, and I scan the Drudge practically daily.

Mamiya – EKSTRABLADET – NETS – Ghettos – A Garden Party

Today is Friday and it’s about 20 Deg.C, partly overcast and a bit windy. In fact it’s very nice for strolling here in downtown Copenhagen.

For some reason the flea market on the Israel Plaza is closed today, hence I move on to the bookcases outside the Paludans antiquarian booksellers in Fiolstraede, a five min. walk.

I found two books at 10 Kr ($1,50) each – more later.

From Paludans it’s another short walk to the Photografica camera store.

In their odds-and-ends box I saw an old SLR from abt. 1975 swimming around. It’s the Mamiya DSX1000 35mm SLR with a 42mm lens mount thread.

It came with a – not original – Soligor 35mm f.2,8 lens in the so-called T.4 mount now rarely seen even in the fleamarkets.

Everything seem to work ok – only I’ve not brought a suitable cell battery for the light meter and thus can’t know if the meter works correctly, or at all.

But the price asked was only 75 Kr ($11,50) whence I decided I could accept the risk. It’s not too often you find a Mamiya 35mm SLR in usable condition, by the way (no pun intended!).

In the McDonalds where I’m writing this someone left an issue of todays EKSTRABLADET, the largest tabloid in our small capital. Why not take a quick look at some of the headlines?

On page 2 there’s a small piece about something I really have a certain difficulty writing about at all, on account it’s an outrage. You feel really offended and pissed off on several levels, a feeling I believe is quite widespread.

It’s about NETS. NETS is the company managing the card-payments for Danish shops plus the log-in facility for Government websites.

And whose board, perhaps unsurprisingly, has managed to draw up plans for appropriating a few hundred million dollars for themselves as a bonus – reportedly.

I believe NETS was originally a public service company, just like f.i. the Post Office? But according to the general agenda drawn up by the Global NWO DeepState power brokers (Bilderberg et all?) all such Government owned companies are to be privatized (as we say in Denmark, I believe the english-speaking world says ‘taken public’?). The billionaire investors can’t get enough…

Usually there are two steps – One: The company is sold off, but most often still part-owned by Government.

Two: Eventually the company is offered for the general investor on the stock exchange.

For the managements this modus operandi happens to give wonderful opportunies for selfish and reckless enrichment – quite legally, of course. And is a well known spectacle all over the world, I believe.

Think of the wast assets appropiated from public Russian wealth beginning at the collaps of the Soviet Union abt. 1990.

Wast fortunes were purloined by businessmen (or gangsters?) with almost unlimited energy and schutzpah in this line of work.

Or think of our Danish Post Office sold off abt. a decade ago. The Danish part of the consolidated Danish-Swedish Postal company has been totally asset-stripped, almost down to the last nail ‘in the coffin’.

Figuratively speaking, the president of NETS seem to most likely have extended family in WallStreet? And very fittingly, inded. A total lack of scruples makes everything happen much faster and more effectively in the short run in this sort of business?

This world wide DeepState directed asset-stripping of citizen owned public assets is perhaps basically to be regarded as a racket?

But the culpable racketeers are certainly not the company boards, they are probably as a rule following the law to the letter – but the politicians making this asset-stripping possible through negligent laws or supervision or perhaps underhanded ways.

The Globalist DeepState always rewards any and all willing nation-disrupting puppet handsomely – the rewards are called ‘fat-cat-jobs’ – and of which Denmark may have seen several emblematic samples in recent decades?

On pages 4-5 there’s a report about the American ambassador in Copenhagen throwing a garden party for 1500 of her ‘closest friends and associates’. 1500! – that’s something, I dare say.

However our photographer and/or reporter may possibly be on their first job? At least the pictures seem to be slightly indifferent?

There’s a large picture from the large garden with mostly unspecified samples of the guests; there are also two or three pictures of a few – not very exiting and at most unintendedly funny? – Danish politicians.

There’s also a picture of the ambassador addressing the guests. Only her picture is so small you can hardly discern her features. Which is a pity, as she seems to be a real pretty lady?

On page 12 is a report about quality problems in one of the Danish ‘Super markets’ – i.e. large general food stores.

Where I live we have several within a 10 min walk: Aldi, Fakta, Irma, Meny, and Netto.

Some of these stores obviously have occational management problems; but I believe this cannot be avoided as it’s probably well neigh impossible to hire qualified staff at the compensations offered?

On page 14 the former editor in chief of EKSTRABLADET, Mr. Bent Falbert, gives us his opinion on one of the latest missions or fads of our (now presumeably unseated) government or rather of most all of parliament.

This clever fad is to demolish low income housing plans with the objective of destroying the ghettos comprised of mostly muslim – 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation – immigrants.

Mr. Falbert is rightly critical of this plan, whence he – hilariously – writes (in Danish):

‘Bygningerne skal rives ned, fordi folk er for ens på et for lavt niveau. Man kunne med samme logiske begrundelse rive Christiansborg ned’ (mener Bent Falbert).

Mr. Falbert is of course a very clever hombre. Incidentally he may also be a nice person, as he will gracefully step aside if you have to pass him in our local Aldi.

Only he apparently thinks the left side of parliament is less clever than the right side. Could be an unintentional blunder, of course.

The two books I fetched at Paludans are:

1. BREAD & CIRCUSES. THEORIES OF MASS CULTURE AS SOCIAL DECAY. By Patrick Brantlinger. 1983, Cornell University Press, Ithaca and London, 307 p., paperback.

From the back cover I quote:

‘Brantlinger maintains that the idea that modern society is repeating an ancient pattern of decline and fall pervades most of the writing on mass culture over the last two centuries.

‘Discussing many of the most influential and representative theories of mass culture, Brantlinger ranges widely from Greek and Roman origins, through Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Ortega y Gasset, T.S.Eliot, and the theorists of the Frankfurt Institute, down to Marshall McLuhan and Daniel Bell.

‘Brantlinger shows how the belief in the historical inevitability of social decay – a belief today perpetuated by the mass media themselves – has become the dominant view of mass culture in our time.’

Doesn’t a ‘BELIEF (that)… has become the dominant view’ smack a good deal of ‘religion’? If so, it’s perhaps not so strange that Satanism reportedly now has become a popular ‘religion’ in the West?

If the Western World don’t overcome the religious lure of decadence, social decay and satanism in quite short order, and shut down their missionaries, the glib snake oil salesmen of cultural disruption so eagerly supported by the Globalist power- and money-brokers, – we shall certainly perish.

2. THE CULTURE OF TIME AND SPACE 1880 – 1918. By Stephen Kern, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Mass., 372 p, paperback.

From the back cover:

‘Stephen Kern writes about the sweeping changes in technology and culture between 1880 and World War I that created new modes of understanding and experiencing time and space.

‘This overview covers such figures as Proust, Joyce, Mann, H.G.Wells, Gertrude Stein, Freud, Conrad, Einstein, and Picasso, as well as diverse sources of popular culture and the transformation of traditional values.’

And more:

‘No brief summary can do justice to the riches and range of this exciting book, which brims with ideas and insights, evidence and examples, and provides the most comprehensive account of the life of the mind in these crusial decades before the First World War, when so much of our modern world was formed and fashioned.

‘Kern’s command of art and literature, painting and architecture, philosophy and psychology, physics and technology is awesome: he moves from Proust to Picasso, Einstein to Stravinsky, with consummate ease and unquenchable enthusiasm’. (London Review of Books)

There are 11 chapters: 1.The nature of Time. 2.The Past. 3.The Present. 4.The Future. 5.Speed. 6.The Nature of Space. 7.Form. 8.Distance. 9.Direction. 10.Temporality of the July Crisis. 11.The Cubist War.

Lets just cast a fleeting glance at the second page of ‘The nature of Time’ (p.11 of the book), from which I quote:

‘As every child quickly learns, there is only one time. It flows uniformly and may be divided into equal parts anywhere along the line.

‘This is the time Isaac Newton defined in 1687: “Absolute, true, and mathematical time, of itself, and from its own nature, flows equally without relation to anything external.”

‘In THE CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON (1781) Immanuel Kant rejected the Newtonian theory of absolute, objective time (because it could not possibly be experienced) and maintained that time was a subjective form or foundation of all experience. But even though it was subjective, it was also universal – the same for everybody.

‘No doubt Newton and Kant experienced different paces of private time, but before the late nineteenth century no one (with the possible exception of Laurence Sterne, who explored private time in TRISTRAM SHANDY) systematically questioned the homogeneity of time. The evidence for it was written on the faces of the millions of clocks and watches manufactured every year.’

A few remarks of mine: Time is not an entity of it’s own. It’s not an ‘it’. From where I started writing this post I had a view of the Copenhagen City Plaza. If you feel you should or could name this view an ‘entity’ of it’s own you might of course also be silly enough to name Time an entity?

Like in ‘Space-Time Continuum’ – which I believe is or until recently has been new-speek for the classic ‘Ether’. Sounds good but makes no sense.

I never had the propensity nor the leisure to plod through Kant’s KRITIK DER REINEN VERNUNFT. Hence I cannot know with certainty exactly what was his meaning with the concept of time as ‘a subjective form or foundation of all experience.’

But I certainly agree that the conception of Time is something subjective: In brief it’s your counsciousnes’ sensing or experiencing and recording in some sort of memory change in (yourself or) your environment.

By the way it would be rash to stipulate, that clocks and electrons rotate with exactly the same speed everywhere in the Universe. But ofcourse, if Earth is your Universe, things are simpler.

The Canon – Max Müller and Oxford – Boileau

Today is Friday and as it’s neither very hot nor chilly a nice day for strolling in downtown Copenhagen.

Today I’ve visited a couple of my usual hunts. Firstly a look at the bookcases in Fiolstraede, an old-city street renowned for it’s antikvarian booksellers. At Paludan’s I fetched a handful at 10 Kr ($1,50) each. More about these below.

From Fiolstraede it’s only a short walk to the Israel Plaza with it’s traditional friday-saturday flea market. I’ve occasionally found an interesting old camera here, and for a pitttance. However no such thing today.

But I had the good fortune to greet my old friends G.R. and her boyfriend, today tending a booth with antique nick-nacks. Haven’t seen them for years.

Her NY-photomodel daughter is now an accomplished Danish artist and has recently had an exhibition in our city (Bredgade). Here is what I wrote on my blog by way of thanking her for an invitation to her first exhibition here after having repatriated from NewYork 10 years ago. (Note 1)

From the Israel Plaza it’s a 15min walk East to the friendly folks at todays favourite photographic store, Foto/C.

They offered me an old Canon SLR, the FX in the chrome version, with a 50mm 1,8 lens. The price was 50 Kr ($7.00) and ofcourse camera and lens are both quite defective.

As usual for the Canon SLR’s of the late sixties and early seventies the shutter bearings are now more or less dried out and the shutter not functioning anywhere near acceptable. The lens seems to have separation in the front lens cell, to boot.

From recent experience I know, however, that I may perhaps have a chance to lubricate at least some of the bearings, and possibly sufficient to make the camera again work with acceptable accuracy. Time will show.

Here are a few impressions from the books fetched in Fiolstraede (as usual sample quotes are in the language of the book in question):

1. ENHET OG MANGFOLD I EUROPEISK KULTUR. Idéhistoriske studier i renessanse-humanismen og dens forutsetninger. By Paulus Svendsen. København 1980, Museum Tusculanums Forlag. 283 pages, paperback.

The author is a professor in literature at the Oslo univsersity.

Chapter 8 ‘Det 12. aarhundres renessanse’ begins thus:

‘1100-tallet er et av de best undersoekte tidsrom med hensyn til gresk-kyndighet; det er i foerste rekke J. de Ghellincks grundige verk som har samlet og utvidet vaar viten. Det er nu blitt noksaa alminnelig aa tale om ‘Det 12. aarhundres renessanse’.

‘J. De Ghellinck fremhever noe av forskjellen mellom det 12. aarhundres renessanse og den italienske Quattrocento slik: Mens den sistnevnte begrenset sine oppdagelsesreiser efter greske kildeskrifter vesentlig til Bysants, fant 1100-tallet sine skatter i Spania, paa Sicilia, i Bysants, i Syria og i Bagdad, hos araberne, kanske mer enn hos grekerne.

‘Dessuten kom, i motsetning til 1400-tallets oversettelsesvirksomhet, Platon og Plotin knapt nok innenfor interessefeltet, naar unntas at to Platon-dialoger, Menon og Faidon, for foerste gang ble oversatt, direkte fra gresk, av grekeren Henricus Aristippus.

‘Paa 1100-tallet representerer grekerne et kompleks av problemer for Vesten. Korsfarerne, som gang paa gang drog gjennom det bysantinske rike, maatte naturlig nok komme til aa utloese hos grekerne en sterk motvilje, og den igjen ble besvart med et virkelig grekerhat.

‘Allerede efter det foerste korstog spredte et slikt grekerhat seg i Vesten. Baade politisk, militaert og religioest ble nu Bysants gjenstand for aksjoner. Korstogene skulle nu bli en kamp ogsaa mot skismatikerne.’

One can hardly help contrast or rather parallet this conflict to some degree with the now ongoing contest or even showdown between the West (or rather the leaders in Western-Europe and the U.S.) and the East (Ukraine-Russia-Serbia and perhaps Tyrkia-Syria?).

It’s perhaps most likely, now as then, a conflict provoked almost solely by reckless and irresponsible Western leaders and their money backers?

2. IN SEARCH OF DREAMTIME. The Quest For The Origin Of Religion. By Tomoko Masuzawa. 1993, University of Chicago Press, Chicago & London. 223 p., paperback.

The author is associate professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

From chapter three ‘Accidental Mythology: Max Müller in and out of his Workshop I quote (p.62, in extracts):

(from a letter to his friend in Germany, Jacob Bernays (not dated here, perhaps about 1860))…

‘What I miss most here in Oxford is stimulating intercourse in literary and scientific circles. That is entirely wanting, especially in my special branch of study….’

‘Oxford has been, and is still, in a state of hibernation; I expect nothing for some years to come. It will wake after a time, but I doubt whether much is gained by disturbing its slumbers for the present.

‘My only comfort at Oxford is that one can work on quietly there, without anybody taking the slightest notice of one. In all other respects I feel that one is perfectly useless there.’

The chapter on Max Müller takes up 20 pages, and I’m looking forward to peruse this small synopsis of Mr. Müller and his great work with editing and translating the RigVeda.

Of course many european readers will know, that Veda means exactly what it means today in many european languages, namely ‘knowledge’ (‘wissen’ (Germ.), ‘viden’ (Dan.)).

Perhaps my childhoods vernacular in Western-Jutland come close in pronunciation – ‘ved’ or ‘wed’: ‘You have no knowledge of this’ – ‘Du har ingen ‘ved om’ det’. The
Jutish vernacular is said to be closer to Old-Norse than modern Danish.

3. BOILEAU OG DIKTEKUNSTEN. Barokk – Klassisme – Opplysning. Af Asbjoern Aarnes. 1961, Oslo, Johan Grundt Tanum. 183 p., paperback.

From p. 12 I quote this sample:

‘Gaar man til fransk litteratur, er kombinasjonen av skapende innsats og teoretisk overveielse, umiddelbarhet og eftertanke, et av de karakteristiske trekk.

‘Helt fra midten av det 16. aarhundre – fra renessansen – har Frankrike hatt en sammenhjengende tradisjon av forfattere hos hvem de to virksomheter har inngaatt forbindelse, utvivlsomt til fordel både for diktningen, kritikken og kunstteorien.

‘Hos enkelte forfattere har tyngdepunktet ligget i det dikteriske, hos andre i det teoretiske. En forfatter som Charles Baudelaire later til aa ha vaert like opptatt av og begavet for begge virksomheter.

‘Han har en sikker plass baade i de litteraere ideers og i diktekunstens historie. Det samme er tilfelle med Paul Valéry, skjoent det er tvivlsomt om hans dikt har den samme blivende verdi som hans refleksjoner over diktekunsten.

‘At den tradisjon fremdeles er levende i Franrkike, ser man hos forfattere som Gabriel Marcel, Jean-Paul Sartre og Jean Wahl. I deres fagfilosofiske produksjon inngaar estetiske betraktninger, og de har alle, om enn med forskjellig hell, skrevet skjoennlitteraere verker.

‘I fransk litteratur er det ogsaa til stadighet blitt understreket at diktningen, som det skrevne ords kunst, har sitt maal i seg selv. Ja det er ikke saa sjelden blitt kokettert med den tanke at dikteren er ‘unyttig’ for samfunnet og at hans kunst ‘bare’ bestaar i aa sette sammen ord.

‘Francois de Malherbe, en af tradisjonens pionerer, pleide aa si at hvis hans vers kom til aa overleve, saa var det fordi han hadde vaert ‘flink til aa sette sammen ord og stavelser’. For staten mente han ikke at han var nyttigere enn en kjeglespiller.

‘Stéphane Mallarmé, en av tradisjonens seneste representanter, svarte som bekjent da maleren Degas fortalte ham at han hadde saa mange ideer at han ville skrive dikt: ‘Min kjaere Degas, det er ikke med ideer man skriver vers, det er med ord.’

‘Paul Valéry likte ogsaa aa spille paa sin bevissthed om diktningens elementaere forutsetninger. Han kalte sitt lyriske hovedverk ‘La Jeune Parque’ for en ‘exercice’ og bedyret at han ville foretrekke aa skrive ‘noe svakt i full bevissthed fremfor et mesterverk av de skjoenneste, i transe og ute af (seg) selv’. ((Sounds very French to me)).

‘Helt i overenstemmelse med denne instilling er ogsaa Valérys definisjon av en klassiker: ‘Klassisk er den forfatter som baerer en kritiker i seg og som knytter ham intimt til sitt arbeide’.’

(to be continued)

Fernisering
8. Feb 2009 15:40, GP

Hej!

Tusind tak for den meget elskværdige invitation til jeres fernisage d. 5.2. Modtaget med posten idag d. 26.1. uagtet jeg kan se den er poststemplet for 11 dage siden. Så den har nok været en tur på Island el. lign?

Det er sandelig en god nyhed, at Du nu skal udstille første gang her i byen, og jeg håber Du får al mulig success.

Jeg regner med jeg kan komme, men det afhænger lidt af situationen den 5. Jeg har dog ganske givet godt af at komme lidt hjemmefra, jeg sidder efterhånden lidt for meget ved computeren. Så når jeg en sjælden gang kommer ned på gaden, er jeg begyndt at undre mig over, at det er gaden der ligger ned og husene der står op, det er jo sådan set lidt mærkeligt, når man ikke kan huske hvordan det plejer at være!

Men som sagt, der kan naturligvis opstå en force majeure, så jeg kun vanskeligt kan komme. For eks. tabte jeg i går et stykke Anton Berg marcipanbrød (den med whiskysmag!), ned bag ved en 1,5 meter høj bogstabel ude i gangen, og skulle det ske igen må jeg opsætte alle andre forehavender.

Men jeg er allerede begyndt at spare sammen til billetten til de 185 busser, som du skrev man skal med. Ligeledes skal jeg på udkig efter en stor sæk til at transportere mine gamle knogler i, så jeg kan få dem alle sammen med helt ud til Ordrup, og så også hjem igen.

Mange hilsener
GP
