This reporter was in at the birth of Google even before its unholy baptism. It didn't have a name at the time. I taught scholastic philosophy then and some classes in the USA were conducted on the internet. An email arrived from one of the most famous Quantum Physics scientists on earth. He wrote: "I was one of hundreds of experts selected from across the academic spectrum to try out an information highway search system. It has something to do with the government I suspect but not sure. We were each invited to search for two items which we considered to be rare or not easily found. I chose questions from my earlier education in philosophy. These were 'Term of First Intention', then 'Term of Second Intention'. After a clutch of similar medical terms the correct answer came back for both queries. They were both from your website ..."

I expressed surprise that the entire Information Highway (as the web was known at the time) relied on my humble teaching offering to answer the famous man's question. Roadkill seemed more influential on that mighty source of human information. Within a few months the name Google, written in rainbow colours, had become the greatest browser on earth.

Five years ago, my scholastic philosophy page disappeared. At first it came up as the first item on the browser, then Wikepedia appeared and pushed it onto the next page. Then it had gone. Don't ask!

Today Google is a monstrous mind bending machine of Orwellian proportions. The Presidential Elections results can be manipulated by the Google Hydra, or so its Silicon Valley Igors are boasting.

Here is how it came into being. (Or use your own term for copulation that effected such a hideous parturition!)

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, western governments moved fast to legitimize expanded powers of mass surveillance and controls on the internet, all in the name of fighting terrorism.

US and European politicians have called to protect NSA-style snooping, and to advance the capacity to intrude on internet privacy by outlawing encryption. One idea is to establish a telecoms partnership that would unilaterally delete content deemed to “fuel hatred and violence” in situations considered “appropriate.” Heated discussions are going on at government and parliamentary level to explore cracking down on lawyer-client confidentiality.

What any of this would have done to prevent the Charlie Hebdo attacks remains a mystery, especially given that we already know the terrorists were on the radar of French intelligence for up to a decade.

There is little new in this story. The 9/11 atrocity was the first of many terrorist attacks, each succeeded by the dramatic extension of draconian state powers at the expense of civil liberties, backed up with the projection of military force in regions identified as hotspots harbouring terrorists. Yet there is little indication that this tried and tested formula has done anything to reduce the danger. If anything, we appear to be locked into a deepening cycle of violence with no clear end in sight.

As our governments push to increase their powers, INSURGE INTELLIGENCE can now reveal the vast extent to which the US intelligence community is implicated in nurturing the web platforms we know today, for the precise purpose of utilizing the technology as a mechanism to fight global ‘information war’ — a war to legitimize the power of the few over the rest of us. The lynchpin of this story is the corporation that in many ways defines the 21st century with its unobtrusive omnipresence: Google.

Google styles itself as a friendly, funky, user-friendly tech firm that rose to prominence through a combination of skill, luck, and genuine innovation. This is true. But it is a mere fragment of the story. In reality, Google is a smokescreen behind which lurks the US military-industrial complex.

The inside story of Google’s rise, revealed here for the first time, opens a can of worms that goes far beyond Google, unexpectedly shining a light on the existence of a parasitical network driving the evolution of the US national security apparatus, and profiting obscenely from its operation.

The shadow network

Established under the Clinton administration, consolidated under Bush, and firmly entrenched under Obama, this bipartisan network of mostly neoconservative ideologues sealed its dominion inside the US Department of Defense (DoD) by the dawn of 2015, through the operation of an obscure corporate entity outside the Pentagon, but run by the Pentagon.

In 1999, the CIA created its own venture capital investment firm, In-Q-Tel, to fund promising start-ups that might create technologies useful for intelligence agencies. But the inspiration for In-Q-Tel came earlier, when the Pentagon set up its own private sector outfit.

Known as the ‘Highlands Forum,’ this private network has operated as a bridge between the Pentagon and powerful American elites outside the military since the mid-1990s. Despite changes in civilian administrations, the network around the Highlands Forum has become increasingly successful in dominating US defense policy.

Giant defense contractors like Booz Allen Hamilton and Science Applications International Corporation are sometimes referred to as the ‘shadow intelligence community’ due to the revolving doors between them and government, and their capacity to simultaneously influence and profit from defense policy. But while these contractors compete for power and money, they also collaborate where it counts. The Highlands Forum has for 20 years provided an off the record space for some of the most prominent members of the shadow intelligence community to convene with senior US government officials, alongside other leaders in relevant industries.

I first stumbled upon the existence of this network in November 2014, when I reported for VICE’s Motherboard that US defense secretary Chuck Hagel’s newly announced ‘Defense Innovation Initiative’ was really about building Skynet — or something like it, essentially to dominate an emerging era of automated robotic warfare.

That story was based on a little-known Pentagon-funded ‘white paper’ published two months earlier by the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington DC, a leading US military-run institution that, among other things, generates research to develop US defense policy at the highest levels. The white paper clarified the thinking behind the new initiative, and the revolutionary scientific and technological developments it hoped to capitalize on.

 O, say can you see?...Civil war, with hand guns, assault weapons, banners, and partisan U.S. Army generals? Is this unimaginable scenario imminent? Has the land of the brave and the home of the free become the DIVIDED States of America?

The Presidential elections are due in a few weeks and the majestic shadow cast by Donald J. Trump accidentally hides the real business. This is not the making or dethroning of the king but the last trumpet and scurrying of sergeants to recruit the troops for battle.

The new Marxist manipulated Democrat party seems to have given up any hope of removing King Trump by fair election. So they plot an aftermath of confusion including renewed attempts at impeachment. The Biden camp are even crowing that they can reduce election day to a farce by the use of uncontrollable free mail voting. By challenging voting counts they believe they can fudge the result for months. Already a batallion of lawyers are preparing to bring affairs of State to a grinding halt by mischievous litigation with selected Leftist judges. The civil war will begin with sorties in the civil courts. Thereafter the implacable conclusion is chaos, riots and more cities set on fire. The core rotten media barons will draw a veil across the villainy and the louche multi-millionaire nouveau riches of Silicon Valley will unleash the mind bending power of their Social information machines. Outraged justice on the Conservative side and insolent confidence in the insurgent forces must eventually break the constraints of civil authoritiy. Armed conflict is then no longer the stuff of heated imaginations and conspiracy theorists.

The last Civil War was so recent that its killing fields were photographed (albeit in monochrome) and recorded for posterity. That savage conflict in a brand new nation claimed the lives of 750,000 boy-young soldiers. That is the updated death toll.

When the great Parliamentarian. Pitt the Elder, warned his peers in the 18th century of a particularly dirty little trick in the political power game, he surely could not have foreseen it being used to enslave the entire population of planet Earth. But the world of men today is in complete shut-down; paralysed: turned as it were to stone, not by the mythical Hydra but by a single word – NECESSITY! 

Pitt had said this in the House of Commons: 

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom; it is the plea of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves

From spring 2020 until today in early summer the great enterprises of our industrial nations have been forbidden to operate; the factory mills and wheels, all stilled. Entire populations have been ordered into house arrest. Families who were apart when the various political authorities in all the continents whimsically proclaimed a novel form of martial law have had to remain apart. Father doing business in Brussels may not leave his hotel and return to his family in Birmingham. Travelers in foreign lands were forbidden to leave. The elderly languish alone, those in care homes wither in loneliness and many die in fear and depredations of infirmity rendered inevitable as the ridiculous isolation erodes natural anatomical defences such as the auto-immune system. 

The necessity upon which this present calamity has been forced upon once free peoples by their elected leaders and enforced rigorously by police and other security services was magnified by a tiny handful of medical and political enthusiasts. A form of flu virus, labelled Coronavirus 19 or covid19, had been unleashed on the world by Chinese Communist scientists who had concocted it in a germ warfare laboratory in the city of Woohan. Whether or not this disaster was accidental or by malevolent design has not yet been ascertained. What is obvious is that if the virus’s escape across the planet was unintentional then appalling errors of judgment were made by the Chinese Communist regime, and these were then compounded by inexplicable failures in pandemic response procedures by the World Health Organisation. In fact, the WHO at first minimised the threat having delayed action for weeks. 

What is this virus? It is a form of influenza. It is not lethal. Like any disease it can be a secondary cause of death among the infirm. It is also a synthetic or manmade or an adapted bio-form. It has been observed to have no or little effect upon healthy people. At its worst it can cause or inflame pulmonary problems. 

Compared to other infectious diseases it has insignificant effects upon industry. Influenza outbreaks can affect work-forces with sickness absenteeism, or pressurise hospital capacity and overstretch medical capabilities. Coronavirus19 outbreaks have not tested health resources significantly despite massive propaganda that millions must die and health resources brought to the point of exploding. 

But a simple statistic makes a nonsense of the catastrophic consequences forecast by an international over-reaction to the admittedly pandemic outbreak of Covid19.  

European data: Population; 742,000,000.  

Covid19 deaths to date (From April 28 to May 31 2020); 177,000. 

Death rate= 0.02% 

In fact the data since then is being challenged as intentional manipulation of recording methods for this particular virus as a cause of death is being investigated. Some statisticians now suggest a death rate closer to 0.01 %. 

We did not stop the world because getting born is a much bigger killer. Birth asphyxia and trauma came twentieth in the list of fatalities this year. Death by Covid 19 is not even on the list compiled by WHO: Cause Specific Mortality estimates. Influenza is ten times worse and Tuberculosis (Yes. TB) even more. Aids is a far more deadly problem. Nobody suggests the necessity to kill the world’s economies for these. 

Why? Why the sinister over-reaction? 

How was such a massive international lock-step effect contrived? 

Who is organising it? 

What levers of influence exist that can subject every free world government to conform? 

Which power sources and powerful individuals have propagated the universal infringement of our natural and God given rights to freedom – to the extent of subjecting every world population to house arrest under threat of criminal conviction and imprisonment? 

Read Overreaction ...

Stop press: Lockdown panic had no effect on number of deaths. It is a huge mistake and will result in more deaths than any saving of lives by many factors. Epidemologists are feeding us incorrect figures. Michael Levitt, Nobel Laureat, Stamford University research into Covid-19:

Stop press: We provide estimates of the death toll in the absence of any known policies and show that these strategies (lockdown and social distancing) might not have saved any lives in Western Europe.  Thomas AJ. Meunier. Woods Hall Oceanographic Institute.


Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it's the creed of slaves.*

And so mankind’s daily labour has been brought to a paralytic halt by a handful of medical meddlers led by the criminal Deep State stethoscoper, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who announced it’s necessary we hand them tyrannical control of our lives so that they and politico/scientists can examine the latest fascinating flu-type bug – at their lordly convenience of course. That means everybody on earth is suddenly their personal laboratory rat and must stay caged up till lifted out for chemical injections, micro-chip identity implants (courtesy Bill Gates and big Pharma) and other such scary experiments! Incidentally, the places of isolation/imprisonment happen to be our own homes, whether rented or bought and paid for.

This discourse with the new medical leadership is exclusive to Newshawk ... 1984 Newspeak translation available from NHS & WHO

  • If everybody is free to come and go how can scientists discover who is sick, who is not sick, and who may, perhaps, become sick. Science must know such basic things, otherwise… anyway it is necessary we stop people dying of Chinaflu, whatever it takes! 
  • But if the world stops going to work entire populations must starve to death in jig time! We’re talking BILLIONS! Real statistics! And that includes America, South America, Africa, and swathes of Scotland and even England. Starvation is ongoing and has killed hosts of men, women and little children in recent centuries. What’s a tiny handful of Chinese flu fatalities in comparison? Most fatalities caused by Chinavirus are the very old and sick; mainly people already dying as we all know!
  • That’s an entirely different, if valid, question. It’s to do with the need to cull people as Bill Gates actually prefers; or climate control as required by George Soros and his pet pope person together with Global Village freemasonry and the Clinton Foundation, not to mention the World Health Organisation, its boss United Nations, and the Democrastic Socialist Fascisti of the U.S. led by Whathisname … the one that looks like a Press Club toilet attendant. Schumer? Chuck something! CNN the American TV cable cabal would know. That may be his day job!
  • What happens if we disobey medical practitioners and scientifically incompetent members of Parliament?
  • Well the police or army or both will drag you off to jail … without trial at least and you may not necessarily be tagged with a criminal record.
  • Without trial?
  • Of course! You can’t have a trial if you don’t break the law. It’s not official law-breaking if you fail to abide by the humanitarian necessity to sanitise the planet to minimal lab levels in order to let scientists get on with their bug watching. You are just effectively in need of mandated isolation. That is just a sensible alternative to enforced isolation elsewhere. By Elsewhere is meant, for example, State accommodation designed for pandemic fatality control purposes.
  • But that is outrageous NewSpeak like in the political horror story 1984!


Does any grouping of people in the Free World trust God today? The Divine power is certainly given a mention in the various national mottoes and anthems of the nations. The good old party in the United States probably gives the Lord a bit more than most; they seem to mean it when they proclaim "In God We Trust!", and the average Republican is fairly open about his Christianity while publicly defending toleration of other religions. The Democrats, like the Labour Party in the U.K., began as believers in God, and, in the cause of seeking justice for the Common Man against exploitation by the powerful, they assumed that Jesus taught that the first involved the second: that is, true worship of God required love of one's neighbour. The matter was not open to debate. Them's the ground rules. In fact the leathery old guys who formulated the elegant political masterpiece they call The Constitution of the United States of America warned that their mysteriously successful Republic was grounded on Christian values and could not be kept without them. If you think about it, the father of Free Trade, Adam Smith, insisted that Capitalism, as such, depended upon the same theological foundation. Whether the man is a worshiping, God-fearing Christian, or holds by Natural Law (Decalogue), or merely assumes that such rules are hard wired in humanity, he left an historical record of a basic understanding of reality, that anything which humanity constructed must self-destruct without recognition of rules set by that Higher Power. Few thinkers in the story of Man have proposed the purpose of conscience to be other than a sense of their Creator's will. “Unless the Lord builds the house the builder labours in vain.” The Bible.

All that is a given in sane debate. Then a phenomenon of the human psyche "evolved" which is the absolute antithesis of that “given”. This contradiction is not confined to political philosophy as taught in the schools but to the entire body of ethics and morality as are espoused by mainstream religions. Nor is the antipathetic intolerance of deistic spirituality satisfied with intensive negative propaganda, it advocates physical violence at unimaginable levels of genocidal hatred, direct and malevolent as in Stalinist and Nazi purges of millions of men, women and children, but also forms of societal genocide as with abortion (whose infant victims are quite beyond counting today). Russia and China are self-destructing by abortion with America and Europe catching up. Passive population erosion is denuding nearly all advanced cultures by materialist temptation to limit births. A massive form of passive genocide.

This alien, atheist spirit was actually among us from the start but it was confined to the darker states of human desire and imagining. It was the denial of the Creator, of the power that all men have everywhere and always called God. At first it was a denial of what was; a sort of "non serviam!" moan of rebellion by those who felt it better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.  Even the denial (proposed as that of the fool), "Non est Deus." God doesn't exist, was just a blank refusal to consider the ramifications of such a proposition. But the evolved atheism which has invaded the very essence of human cognition, from East to West, is that God is a sop for the uneducated, an emotional crutch for fools or gullible masses. The first religion of Denial sneered at Christianity as an opiate. That powerful world religion is called Communism, its basic philosophy is Marxism (after a co-founder). The scriptural "Insipiens in corde sua dixit non est Deus" has been set on its head and now only the fool declares God.

For any journalist this controversy has long moved from debating chamber to the streets. It is also the news story supreme. It is so big it has become invisible. This little essay attempts to throw powder over the miasma to make its outlines visible, little else. To unpick its fabric is the stuff of the arachnids of myth.

Mankind as an activity grouping, that is the women and men whose intricate affairs are regulated by norms of behavour day by day tend to identify three ruling authorities; personal, ethical, and legal. The first is proposed as conscience, an innate or learned set of behavoural principles the violation of which results in emotional discomfort or visible disadvantage to other people affected by our "abnormal" acts. The second is the Church or its like. The third is Government. The thrust here concerns governments; to be explicit, politics, politicians, and the people. The question is; can Government exist without God. It is a serious question and it has never been more pertinent – or more blatantly avoided.

Yes, America’s news media hates Americans! But when does political opposition turn into treason?

Growing up in far away Scotland I had a thing about America before I ever realised it was another country. It was a formless affection for things a world away from my scampering boyhood; and it all began behind the Odeon cinema in a town called Hamilton. Our gang on a Saturday morning huddled outside the fire-doors to listen to the echo-chamber voices of Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Cagney and the other celluloid movie mobsters plotting a bank heist, or the young curate, Fr. Bing Crosby crooning the Bells of St. Mary’s. It was the poor kid’s Stargate through which a sunlit culture flowed into the old country. Everything in the movies was big and safe and, looking back, definitely decent. Sons called their fathers Sir. Protocol, even in Roy Rogers Cowboy movies, was observed in the company of crinolined ladies.

A lifetime later I went to America on a news assignment. I was to return again and again. I loved visiting the States. The film industry even back then was becoming impatient of the consensual Christian standards of the people but it wasn't dirty. That was coming, a very long time coming, but when it came it had the force of something like blasphemy in a Church. And everything couldn't be blamed on the film industry. That cultural catastrophe was a fusion of three currents, a louche, atheist academia which had seized practically every chair in the great universities, Hollywood where the sexual revolution had almost overnight made a joke of the august Film Censor Board, and a coup by the Marxist Left which subverted the political faction that went with baseball, and hot-dogs, and movie queues -- the Democrat Party, a former recourse of the hard working common man; to represent him and his family, their precarious industrial security and basic social justice.

To return Stateside in the 70s, after a mere ten years, was a culture shock. The change was as bewildering and sudden as landing in a city in the aftermath of a military coupe. And the perfidy of the once paternally correct Media was the most unnerving phenomenon of all within this sinister national metamorphosis. Americans had historically elevated the status of their information services to a level bordering upon the sacred; entwined inextricably with founding laws framing their God given right to free speech. The media, it seemed, formed a secure wall against the faddish depredations of post war Europe. It is for another essay to enquire into a secondary problem coming to light - the adoption by the younger professional class of a form of soft Marxism (admittedly a fantasy in itself) when the norm is for comfortable and secure people to be Conservative. That it is a fact explains to some extent the success of the virus that has reduced the Democrat Party.  Today the Democrats really do behave like a fifth column -- the inside enemy, the agency subverting its own nation and assisting traitors. And the bulk of the mainline media is cheerleader and enabler of the wildest of their treasons.

Consider the sea-change in the Press! In times past, a colleague on the Daily Mail in England took up our “man in America” column and became the delighted and spoiled guest of our Yankie cousins. He was invited to all sorts of functions and beanos one of which was a public lecture that had drawn a huge crowd. The speaker was one of the early anti-smoking experts. My friend wandered into the Green room during a break and found the pundit lighting a large Havana Havana cigar. Now he did what Brit journalists do by nature. He slipped out his notebook while signaling for a photographer. The pleasant pundit was quite unfazed. In fact he proffered a cigar to the reporter. No photographer turned up and my chum’s hosts later gently chided him for “breaking faith” with the expert. Seemingly the gaff was compounded by a failure to ask if the obvious subject was for or not for “the record”. Back then most American journalists would have slapped my pal’s wrist. Imagine the scene today! Ah, but not as a vignette in a crowded city of basically decent citizens, try instead to think of the cigar sinner as a leading Republican and my old time colleague as the chief reporter on the Washington Post, or a CNN anchor man. Get the drift? For the record? Ye gods!

There has survived a shrinking number of excellent media channels and press titles, such as The Wall Street Journal and Fox News. But the visitor is left with a suspicion that the best commentators are failing to recognise the enormity of the force that has overtaken them, although essential local elements have been correctly identified and responding strategies devised. For example a major problem is Deep State. Almost every assault on the culture entered via that novel Trojan Horse

In itself, Deep State is neutral. It is not a fifth column as such, but its very existence handicaps formal authority.  Deep State is essentially a State operating inside the State proper. The phenomenon emerged quite by the necessity of its own nature; that is, the administrative body of any modern nation has grown so numerous and powerful as the direct result of computer generated information that it has formed an identifiable social grouping of its own. The sheer data and information processing competence of this specialist population has cut a chasm between government administration as a tool of the governors and the actual tool itself. In terms of a paradox the tool is too big for the engineer and only the tool can use the tool. Now in itself the incompetence of elected people to control this Leviathan is problem enough, but what if real 5th columnists get to influence such massive machinery of State control.

 It can certainly be manipulated insofar as its senior operatives can be influenced by interested powers; for example by bribery or quid pro quo deals for patronage or advancement. Potentially it could be more deadly than the old Fifth Columnists of the past. Imagine a power caucus, say a political party,  unleashing the tax collection department against some perceived enemy! Or the nightmare scenario of the might of State Security being launched against an American citizen!

But, my goodness! Hasn't this just taken place in the United States of America as we write? The Obama/Clinton administration has just been exposed for the first horror, hounding enemies by subversive taxation. And has not the Democrat Party been exposed as the blatant manipulators of senior Federal security personnel who then engaged in wire-tapping, spying and entrapment meetings even in President Trump's own home?

And what decent visitor to America could conceive of an impeachment process moved against the President with purpose to remove him from his elected office? No? Well the Democrats have initiated that very contrivance. And in order to set the whole charade in motion recourse was taken initially to evoke the new beast Deep State in the form of its security administrators.

How they twisted safeguard brain function to make zombie populations Part two   Bad Science      

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. So wrote Pitt the Younger in the early 19th century.

So what’s new? And for slaves read minions. Same thing.

But you get the big picture now! It’s about creating and manipulating a sense of fear in a group of ordinary people. This is done by confusing the critical psychological signals which are hard wired into each individual. One of these is, in professional jargon, the sympathetic nervous system. This initiates a track in the brain which boosts physical sensitivity and thus improved reaction to threats. Headlights whiz towards you in the rain and your pupils dilate, your throat widens to take in more oxygen, the heart rate accelerates, and blood moves from the body’s surface deep into the muscles. You leap from a standing start five feet further than your best running long jump at school. In fact fear initiates these sudden and complex physiological changes to defend and protect you from imminent damage. Whether for fight or flight you are better at it.  When the threat recedes the parasympathetic nervous system defaults. A man can then relax and enjoy a bite to eat. Nature when left to itself switches your emergency system back to normality mode which is easy like Sunday morning. They call it the rest and digest mode. However studies of sedentary office people experiencing panic attacks indicate a form of slow burning triggering of the sympathetic mode. Certainly the cure involving quick strenuous exercise suggests the classical default back into calm. Endless irritation and constant negativity is not helpful to mental stability.

That’s of use to the mischiefs who insist that we all get off our easy chairs and protest and do stuff like marching in very long lines down the main street yelling, “Tories .... out, out, out!” or to organize public campaigns for chucking bad eggs at politicians and then getting indigestion or jail.

So if Mr Soros’s agents, or the Marxists or Freemasons, or heretic RC popes get us all to feel ratty and suspicious and expecting the worst the manipulators can programme us with any and every kind of ideology and we don’t even notice we’re so pissed off. Why? Because an agitated man can’t think straight. In fact under the influence of the sympathetic nervous system instinct rules. Logic is jettisoned. We become susceptible to all kinds of subliminal propaganda. Simple! Next thing you know Adolf Hitler or Joe Stalin, or Pol Pott is redivivus (risen from the tomb). You could be unlucky enough to discover that George Soros is the big swinging dick – globally! And it’s all accomplished by keeping us convinced that rules like persecuting smokers, or saving the planet from the laws of nature are absolutely necessary. Look around! When I met my student nurse wife I was sitting up in bed smoking a Capstain cigarette in Ward 10, Hairmyers Hospital, Lanarkshire, Scotland. The matron herself removed my ash tray to empty it. That’s called freedom folks. It’s why we lost a lot of young men in fire fights against hordes of German National Socialists, AKA Nazis.

The 12 questions of the quiz above are the tip of an iceberg of lost freedoms; and the most disturbing thing of all is not just that freedom has been eroded but that once free people have been unconsciously pressed into a pernicious consensus (or secret police force, or virtue signaling religion for the other guy) antagonistic towards any of the few freedoms left us in Western culture. In Canada only one man of note stood up to shout, Enough! when his government passed a law to force him what to say. That is a violation of free speech never contemplated outside of oppressed nations under Communist or Nazi tyrannies. What not to say can be ok if it limits personal insults, but to be ordered that you must use this or that expression … well that’s not right. That was Jordan Peterson.
