  • EditorialNEXUS MAGAZINE Volume 12, Number 1 DECEMBER 2004 – JANUARY 2005 I have often wondered how the people of Nazi Germany allowed their country to fall under the gradual but hypnotic spell of corporate fascism under Hitler and his Western financial backers. Looking at the USA today, I can see how easily this was achieved. PUBLISHED BY The world is watching in shock and horror as Americans allow their freedoms and any NEXUS Magazine Pty Ltd, ABN 80 003 611 434 shred of international respect to slip away. And we can only expect things to go from bad to EDITOR worse. Voting in these last elections was rigged on a massive scale, but the other story here Duncan M. Roads is that the media and the main "losing party" fear raising the issue of this grand fraud. CO-EDITOR Truly, America has become a nation of fear. The public fears the terrorists (manufactured Catherine Simons by Bushs backers for the very reason of inducing fear), activists and journalists fear the new ASSISTANT EDITOR/SUB-EDITOR gestapo (aka Homeland Security), and the world, in turn, now fears America. The fact that Ruth Parnell the governments of Australia and the UK are supporting the Bush government in its every UK OFFICE ADMINISTRATION aggressive action should be of great concern to us all—but too many of us are too busy to Marcus Allen notice, too apathetic to care or feel too disempowered to think we can change anything. CONTRIBUTORS THIS ISSUE So is there any hope for a future where people of all races and religions can live together Richard Heinberg; Russell Blaylock, MD; in peace and harmony on a clean and fruitful planet? I hear that many of the elite "secret Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, Martin Feldman, MD, societies" have this same goal, as you will read in the article on Cecil Rhodes and the Round Gary Null, PhD, Debora Rasio, MD; Table. I have a problem with people prepared to commit foul deeds for a supposedly noble Will Banyan; Igor Spajic; Valery Uvarov; Carl Agar; James Fauble; Debbie Payne outcome, in that the final result is "tainted" by the foul deeds they commit on the way. In CARTOONS other words, the ends do not justify the means. Think very carefully before you ever choose Phil Somerville to believe that the ends justify the means. It is a catchphrase used by the elite to coerce people COVER GRAPHIC with a conscience into committing unconscionable acts against their fellow humans. John Cook, Still on American gloom and doom, the value of the US dollar started falling just as I PRINTING received an article on this subject by Richard Heinberg, so I decided to run it this issue. The Goodhed Print Group, Bicester, Oxon., UK dollars value is still falling and speculation is rife about its future. If the author is right, well be lucky to have another year of relative economic stability. DISTRIBUTION There are still people out there who believe the lies told by doctors, drug companies and Seymours, London, UK health bureaucrats that vaccines are safe and effective.

That situation is coming to end, and the conse- quences will be far-reaching. collapse if the In order to understand why this sea change is about to occur, and what is at stake, it is necessary to begin by examining in the briefest terms the history of money, banking and the OPEC oil-producing dollar. Hunter-gatherer societies typically enjoyed a gift economy in which trade and barter nations decide to occurred only with people external to the tribe or band. Everyone within the band was treat- ed as family: whatever was available was shared without expectation of reciprocal exchange. sell oil for euros The story of the rise of social complexity is also the story of the gradual shrivelling of the gift economy and the expansion of the scope of trade—a story that culminates in our situa- instead of dollars, tion today in which the market mediates nearly all categories of transactions between and or if the "mortgage among humans, sometimes even within families. Even many relatively complex societies of the past (such as the ancient Egyptian and Incan bubble" bursts the civilisations) managed to do without money. However, this new tool, wherever it appeared, served to facilitate and accelerate trade. Its effects were predictable; French Historian US economy from Fernand Braudel, writing of Europe in the Middle Ages, described them as "steep variations in prices of essential foodstuffs; incomprehensible relationships in which man no longer within. recognised himself, his customs or his ancient values". The individual caught up in mediae- val Europes monetisation process found, again in Braudels words, that "his work became a commodity, himself a thing". The kinds of money people have used are almost endless; however, in societies that have adopted the widespread use of money, coins made of precious metals long ago became favoured over other options (including shells, beads, cattle and, in China, paper) due to their relative durability, portability and rarity. Since money serves several possible functions—a store of value, a measure of value, a medium of exchange and a standard of deferred payment—in some cases individual societies have used two or more forms of money simultaneously. Monetary history took a decisive turn with the emergence of banking in Europe during the by Richard Heinberg © 2004 Middle Ages.

  • I was asked to write a paper on some of the newer mechanisms of vaccine damage to the nervous system, but in the interim I came across an incredible document that should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful governmental agencies. US government It all started when a friend of mine sent me a copy of a letter from Congressman David agencies know that Weldon, MD, to the Director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dr Julie L. Gerberding, in which he alludes to a study by a Dr Thomas Verstraeten, then representing vaccines containing the CDC, on the connection between infant exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental injury. In this shocking letter, Congressman Weldon refers to Dr mercury and Verstraetens study which looked at the data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink and found a significant correlation between thimerosal [an ethylmercury sodium salt] exposure via aluminium have vaccines and several neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech and language delays and possibly ADD. severe neurological Congressman Weldon questions the CDC director as to why, following this meeting, Dr effects, yet theyve Verstraeten published his results almost four years later in the journal Pediatrics to show just the opposite; that is, that there was no correlation with any neurodevelopmental prob- failed to force the lems related to thimerosal exposure in infants. In this letter, Congressman Weldon refers to a report of the minutes of this meeting held in Georgia, which exposes some incredible manufacturers to statements by the "experts" making up this study group. The groups purpose was to eval- uate and discuss Dr Verstraetens results and data and make recommendations that would remove these toxic eventually lead to possible alterations in the existing vaccine policy. I contacted Congressman Weldons legislative assistant and he kindly sent me a com- metals from most plete copy of this report. Now, as usual in these cases, the government did not give up this report willingly; it required a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to pry it loose. vaccines including Having read the report twice and carefully analysed it, I can see why they did not want those injected into any outsiders to see it. It is a bombshell, as you shall see. In this analysis, I will not only describe and discuss this report, but also will frequently quote the participants words babies. directly and supply the exact page number so others can see for themselves. The official title of the meeting was the "Scientific Review of Vaccine Safety Datalink Information". This conference, held on June 7–8, 2000, at Simpsonwood Retreat Center, Norcross, Georgia, assembled 51 scientists and physicians, of which five represented vac- cine manufacturers. These included Smith Kline Beecham, Merck, Wyeth, North Part 1 of 2 American Vaccine and Aventis Pasteur. During this conference, these scientists focused on the study of the Datalink material, whose main author was Dr Thomas Verstraesten who identified himself as working at the National Immunization Program of the CDC. It was discovered by Congressman Weldon that Dr Verstraeten left the CDC shortly after this conference to work in Belgium for GlaxoSmithKline, which manufacturers vaccines—a recurring pattern that has been given the name "revolving door". It is also interesting to note that GlaxoSmithKline was involved in several lawsuits over complications secondary to their vaccines. by Russell Blaylock, MD To start off the meeting, Dr Roger Bernier, Associate Director for Science in the © 2004 National Immunization Program (CDC), relates some pertinent history. He states that Congressional action in 1977 required that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Website: review mercury being used in drugs and biologics (vaccines). In meeting this order, the FDA called for information from the manufacturers of vaccines and drugs. He notes that a group of European regulators and manufacturers met in April 1999 and noted the situa- tion but made no recommendations of changes. In other words, it was all for show.DECEMBER 2004 – JANUARY 2005 NEXUS • 17

  • WOMENS EXPERIENCE IN MEDICINE B riefly, we will look at the medical iatrogenesis of women in particular. Dr Martin Charcot (1825–1893) was world-renowned, the most celebrated doctor of his time. He practised in the Paris hospital La Salpetrière. He became an Unnecessary expert in hysteria, diagnosing an average of 10 hysterical women each day, transforming them into "iatrogenic monsters", turning simple "neurosis" into hysteria. 96 treatments for The number of women diagnosed with hysteria and hospitalised rose from 1% in 1841 to 17% in 1883. Hysteria is derived from the Latin hystera, meaning "uterus". womens health Dr Adriane Fugh-Berman stated very clearly in her paper that there is a tradition in US medicine of excessive medical and surgical interventions on women. Only 100 years problems and poor ago, male doctors decided that female psychological imbalance originated in the uterus. When surgery to remove the uterus was perfected, it became the "cure" for mental insta- care of the elderly bility, effecting a physical and psychological castration. Dr Fugh-Berman noted that US doctors eventually disabused themselves of that notion but have continued to treat in so many nursing women very differently than they treat men.97 She cites the following: homes are 1. Thousands of prophylactic mastectomies are performed annually. 2. One-third of US women have had a hysterectomy before menopause. symptomatic of a 3.

It does increase the risk of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke and gall bladder attack. 100 We would add that as many as one-third of postmenopausal women use HRT. 101, 102 These numbers are important in light of the much-publicised Womens Health Initiative Study, which was forced to stop before its completion because of a higher death rate in the synthetic oestrogen–progestin (HRT) group.103 Part 3 of 3 Caesarean Section In 1983, 809,000 Caesarean sections (21% of live births) were performed, making it the most common obstetric and gynaecologic (OB/GYN) surgical procedure. The sec- ond most common OB/GYN operation was hysterectomy (673,000), and diagnostic dila- tion and curettage of the uterus (632,000) was third.

  • But for [King] George III, war would have been unknown throughout the world today. The English-speaking race would have been reorganised as a unit, with its central Parliament meeting alternately in New York and London, and it would have given peace to the world. — Cecil Rhodes, July 19011 A t the end of the 19th century the British Empire was the largest the world had Cecil Rhodes, ever seen, covering some 19 million square kilometres of territory and nearly a quarter of the worlds population. Britain was also the pre-eminent global founder of the power, possessing the strongest navy in the world and the largest merchant fleet and dominating the global economy as the biggest investor, banker, insurer and De Beers diamond commodity dealer. 2 According to Niall Ferguson, author of Empire: How Britain Made the Modern World (2003), this Pax Britannica was not only a force for good, but also mining corporation, the "nearest thing there has ever been to a world government". 3 Perhaps it was, though for the millions of indigenous peoples who had been colonised, often with great had a vision of an brutality, and whose lands and natural resources were now being plundered by the Imperial Federation British while they were relegated to the status of second-class subjects, the benefits of being part of the British Empire were somewhat elusive. that would re-unify Yet, despite all these apparent strengths, Britain was no longer at the peak of its power, a point it reached in the 1870s. Indeed, the start of the 20th century marked the Great Britain and final phases of its inevitable decline. The er osion of British power was occurring on two fronts: first, through the imperial expansion of the other European powers, which the United States impinged on its military dominance; and second, by the gradual loss of its industrial and commercial supremacy, upon which its military might had rested. The British and globalise the Establishment was already reading these portents of imperial decay. The First Lord of the Admiralty, for example, had warned in 1900 that in coming years Britain " world. itself will not be strong enough to hold its proper place alongside of the US or Russia and probably not Germany. We shall be thrust aside by sheer weight." 4 It was in the midst of this pervading sense of gloom that, in 1909, a movement emerged which sought to preserve British power by converting its Empire into an "Imperial Federation" or "Imperial Union". 5 This movement was known as the Round Part 1 of 4 Table. The Round Table occupies a special place in most populist accounts of the New World Order, the group given a pivotal role in the World Government conspiracy. David Icke, for example, writes that the Round Table "spawned a network of interconnecting groups in many countries working toward a common government".3 The reason for this focus on the Round Table is the rather sensational analysis of the group provided by Carroll Quigley (1910–1977) in his 1966 book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time . A professor of history and by Will Banyan international relations at Georgetown University, Quigley discussed the Round Table © October 2004 movement in some detail, claiming it formed the hub of an "international Anglophile network" which had exercised disproportionate influence over the American and British Email: governments for much of the 20th century. More importantly, he personally confirmed the existence of this alleged network, citing some 20 years of studying its history, including gaining exclusive access to its documents over a two-year period; even claiming that for much of his life he was "close to it and to many of its instruments". 7 For many researchers, Quigleys personal testimony has seemed reason enough toDECEMBER 2004 – JANUARY 2005 NEXUS • 31

  • T he city of Buffalo, in the north of New York State, USA, bore silent witness to an extraordinary event one week in the (northern) summer of 1931. The economic Depression had dampened business and manufacturing to some extent, but the city was nevertheless a hubbub of activity. Among the thousands of vehicles travelling the streets of the city one day, a luxury car stopped by the kerb at a traffic light intersection. A pedestrian noticed that the car was a new Pierce-Arrow sedan, with head- light housings blending into gracefully swept front fenders in the unique Pierce-Arrow In the northern style. What also set the elegant car apart was that on this cold day, there was no visible vapour belching from the exhaust pipe. The bystander approached the driver and through summer of 1931, the open window commented on the lack of fumes coming from the exhaust. The driver acknowledged the mans compliment and remarked that it was because the car had "no Dr Nikola Tesla engine". This statement is not as whimsical or mischievous as it may seem. There was some road-tested a luxury truth to it. The Pierce-Arrow did indeed have no internal combustion engine. It had an electric motor instead.

He discovered cosmic rays decades before Millikan, and was an early developer of X-ray, cathode ray and other vacuum tubes. However, Nikola Teslas potentially most significant discovery was that electrical energy could be made to propagate through the Earth and also around the Earth in an atmospheric zone called the Schumann cavity. It extends from the planetary surface to the ionosphere at about 50 miles (80 kilometres) altitude. Electromagnetic waves of extremely low frequencies in the range of 8 Hz (the Schumann resonance or pulse of the Earths magnetic field) travel with virtually no loss, to any point on the planet.

He moved to America and settled in New York City. In a series of interviews in 1967, Mr Savo related his part in the affair of the Tesla electric car. During the summer of 1931, Tesla invited Savo to Buffalo, New York state, to unveil and test a new type of automobile which Tesla had developed with his own funds. Coincidentally, Buffalo is close to Niagara Falls—where Teslas AC hydroelectric power station went on line in 1895, marking the pinnacle of his esteem in the eyes of orthodox science. Westinghouse Electric and the Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company had prepared this experimental electric car under Dr Teslas guidance.

  • be pressed further for details, however, as he was hypersensitive regarding the security of his device—and with good reason. Powerful interests, who sought to stymie his every effort to pro- mote and apply his technologies, had blackballed Tesla in the past. This author is unaware of any known public record of the nauti- cal experiment, or if it took place at all. Scant information made it into the public arena. The New York Daily News, on 2 April 1934, ran an article enti- tled "Teslas Wireless Power Dream Nears Reality", which described a "planned test run of a motor car using wireless trans- mission of electrical energy" for power. This was after the event and made no mention of "free energy". At the time that the car might have been unveiled, the Westinghouse Corporation, under president F. A. Merrick, paid for Teslas accommodation at New Yorks newest and most luxu- rious hotel, the New Yorker. There, the ageing scientist lived rent free for the rest of his life. Tesla was also hired by Westinghouse for some unspecified wireless research and he stopped his public statements on cosmic rays. Did Westinghouse buy Teslas reluctant silence on his free- energy discoveries? Or was he funded to pursue secret projects that were so speculative that they would be of no possible threat to established industry for the foreseeable future? The curtain drops on a mystery within an enigma. ∞ About the Author: Igor Spajic bought his first copy of NEXUS because of an article on Nikola Tesla, and maintains an interest in the technology and his- tory of the inventor.

  • W hat are the Wands of Horus? Their roots go back into the depths of time. For the priests and pharaohs of ancient Egypt, the Wands of Horus—metal cylinders filled with various special materials—were a tool enabling an "initiate" to pass over the "boundary of death", not in a figurative sense but Copper and zinc in the direct one. The ancient doctrine of the hidden nature of the human being that revealed the way to the spiritual enlightenment envisaged by the nature of the Creator rods filled with helped an initiate to discover the great Truth—neglect of which has cost many "spiritual mentors" their lives through the ages. Mastery of the secret of the Wands of Horus was, quartz crystals or for those seeking to know the nature of existence, a decisive factor in preparing to enter into "intercourse with the gods" through the pyramids.

The Wands of Horus and, indeed, the knowledge of the ancients in general is a very interesting and wide-reaching topic. So, in order to help readers grasp the structure of principles invisible to the uninitiated eye and to draw closer to the sources of knowledge, the National Security Academy of Russia presents a book, The Wands of Horus, intended to bring to a wider public the recent results obtained from the study of the legacy of ancient Egypt.

  • attune to the holder, the organism itself sets the vibration, the rhythm, that it requires at that particular time. The rhythm is dic- tated by the characteristic vibration of the person—a sort of indi- vidual code. It is that individual vibration interacting with the crystal that causes the crystal lattice to resonate, setting the required rhythm. That rhythm (individual vibration) acts like a starter motor in a car, providing the impulse, starting the process by which the Wands of Horus subsequently themselves begin to vibrate at the appropriate frequency. The Wands of Horus create and maintain an energy shell that, with the aid of the required vibratory frequency, initiates the process of self-correction. The flow of energy passing through the seventh chakra is transformed into a flow of vibrations at a particular frequency and harmonises the energy shell (aura), evening it out. It is worth mentioning here that the elongated headgear of the Pharaoh was a special concentrator, also focusing on the energetic projections of the hypophysis and hypothalamus.

  • WHAT LIES BEHIND THE TUNGUSKA EXPLOSION F our years from now, 30 June 2008, will be the 100th anniversary of one of the most mysterious catastrophes: the explosion of a body from space near the Podkamennaya (or Stony) Tunguska River in Siberia. There can scarcely have been another event in the past century to compare with it. The total power of the explosion exceeded the combined power of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Eyewitness reports Nagasaki more than 2,000 times over! Apart from that, the Tunguska explosion caused: • an anomalous glow in the sky that was observed as late as 10 days afterwards, and the suggest that an intense appearance of silvery clouds; ancient high-tech • massive radiation of light and heat; • disruption of the normal functioning of meteorological instruments and the appearance "Installation" in of surface earth tremors; • a tremendous sound wave that travelled twice around the globe; remote Siberia was • the felling of trees over an enormous area of over 2,000 square kilometres; • weak traces of radioactivity, detected in tree samples and the polar ice layers dating responsible for from 1908; • anomalous properties of the soil and minerals in the area of the Tunguska explosion; sending guided • the unusually rapid growth of vegetation at the epicentre of the Tunguska explosion; • cooling of the Earths climate in the following few years. plasma sphere weapons to destroy Despite the fact that such a tremendous event did not go unnoticed, the first attempts to discover what had actually occurred in the remote Siberian taiga were only made many a meteorite over years later, in 1927. Since then, dozens of research expeditions have visited the area, hun- dreds of scientific papers have been written and several hundred hypotheses put forward Tunguska in 1908. about the causes of the event. Not one of them, however, has been able to explain fully the complex phenomena that preceded and accompanied the Tunguska explosion. Some of the phenomena observed by eyewitnesses simply do not fit within the framework of existing theories. Much of what happened then cannot be interpreted at all from the standpoint of present-day scientific thinking. More than that, one gets the persistent impression that we have come up against some- thing completely outside the bounds of our customary understanding of the world about Part 2 of 3 us. Perhaps today we are closer than ever before to a solution to the mystery that will become a turning point in the development of human consciousness. But it will require a certain boldness, the ability to look with an open mind untrammelled by the dogmas cur- rent in science in order to properly assess the most inexplicable episodes of the event. The work carried out by generations of scientists and researchers provided us with a very rich stock of facts and scientific material, making it possible to shed light on the true by Dr Valery Uvarov © 2004 causes and nature of the phenomena that took place almost 100 years ago in the area of the Podkamennaya Tunguska.

A hurricane ofunseen force arose and the land was shaken by mighty blows. When everything had calmed down and the darkness had dis-persed, an unprecedented sight met their eyes.

In place of the tall structure therewas an immense, yawning, vertical "orifice".

  • In the northeastern part of the sky there rose first from the horizon a very dense cloud, pointed towards the top and broad at the base. It rose so quickly that in no more than three minutes it reached half the height to the zenith. At the very moment when the dark cloud appeared, in the north - west there appeared a huge shining comet that rose to 12º above the horizon, and then from the north another dark cloud arose, from the west, rapidly rising to the cloud that approached it some - what slower. Between these two clouds in the northeast a bright light formed in the shape of a column, that for several minutes did not change its position, while the cloud that appeared from the west moved to meet it with exceptional speed and collided with the other cloud with such terrible force that [there was] a broad flame in the sky from their collision and [this] was accompanied by smoke, while the glow extended from the northeast right to the west. The real smoke ascended to 20º above the horizon, while the rays of flame intersected it constantly in all directions, just as if there was a battle taking place between many navies and armies. This prodigy continued for a full quarter of an hour in its most dazzling form and then began to dim little by little and finished with the appearance of a host of bright arrows that reached to 80º above the horizon. The cloud that had appeared in the east dispersed. After it, the other vanished completely, so that by 10 in the evening the sky had again become clear and shone with glistening stars.
