A Satanic and Shadowy Elite ?

Conspiracy theorists like to talk about the people on the top and refer to them as puppets. Others go further than that and don't call them just puppets of the global elite but they say they apparently are part of some kind of sick occultist belief that includes (mock)sacrifice ceremonies and satan worshiping !

Satan worshiping ? What has that got to do with Michelle Obama ? Look at her left hand, is that what it looks like ?
If it is, then she joins a club of people in high places who have been captured several times doing the same signal (cool prisonplanet story about the signal), what's the story here ?

Secret societies ruling the planet ? That's the truth according to some conspiracy guys. Naturally I had to investigate this. The implications and thought of sick fucks ruling the planet is just to scary for me.

Bohemian Grove
For decades people believed that an annual meeting of the worlds most powerful people at the bohemian grove in the United States is at the heart of all these secret societies. It's existence has been denied for decades but after independent journalists turned up the heat so much on them the grove had to come forward and admit their annual meetings, nowadays the organization even has their own website !

At the grove these powerful people come together, dress up, listen to each others speeches and take part in all these weird rituals, all behind closed doors in the woods. But why ? A lot of them are public servants, we have a right to know !

Here is an official photo released by the grove, what does this ritual mean ?

Here is politician David Gergen (he regularly appears on CNN as an analyst), Alex Jones confronts him and talks about bohemian grove. When the grove is mentioned David isn't very amused ! Great stuff.


Here is a British documentary, not BY Alex Jones but ABOUT him. He had the balls to trespassing into the bohemian grove and film what he witnessed, this documentary follows him while he prepares, goes and comes back from his little trip. Sick stuff !



Skull & Bones
Wikipedia: Skull and Bones is a secret society based at, but not formally affiliated with, Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
15 carefully selected junior students at Yale University each year get an invitation to join. That's the only way you can become part of Skull & Bones.

The U.S. presidential election of 2004 was actually between -not only two cousins- two skull and bones blood brothers, John Kerry and George Bush ! George W. Bush writes in his autobiography, "[In my] senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society; so secret, I can't say anything more." Both of them were "Bonesmen" so one journalist had the courage to ask them both about it during their campaigns, their response is at the very least intriguing ! MUST SEE.


Skull and Bones is all about secrecy. I have found lots of people on the internet who claim to have sources within the organization and who claim lots of outrages things that can not be proved. So what is it ? I don't know.

Skull and Bones in 1947, with George H.W. Bush just left of the clock
So who were members ? Here is a wikipedia article about it (so before you start believing, check it out).

What IS Skull and bones ? If you believe Hollywood (the good Sheppard is a good example), skull and bones is a club of people who are destined to rule the planet. Here is a short youtube clip about it. Some say that Stanley Kubrick's last movie Eyes Wide Shut is about that.

So, what's the joke here ? All our (mostly christian) world leaders are tricking us and are actually working for satan ?
-"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."-
I don't believe that, the thought is just to horrible !

I don't know if all this is what it might seem but I am opposed to public servants meeting with powerful people behind closed doors. John F. Kennedy made a famous speech about that

What would Bill Hicks say ?


Today its exactly 15 years ago that comedian Bill Hicks (1961 - 1994) died. The reason I bring this up is because Bill Hicks was not just a comedian. Bill Hicks was the best comedian. Perhaps even in history and he also is my hero.


And he was not just the best comedian. He was much more than a comedian. "An inspired and inspiring truth teller, dangerous and brave and scary, all at once."

He was the social critic in the 80ies and was described as the dark poet because of his way with words. He challenged mainstream beliefs, aiming to enlighten people to think for themselves. In both his stand-up performances, and during interviews, he often criticized media and popular culture as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to keep people stupid and apathetic. Lots of his stuff is perhaps is even more true today then when he said it over 15 years ago. So what would Bill Hicks say if he were around today ?

Bill Hicks carried a message with him. I think it's love. His shows would be filled with progressive and thought provoking subject matters and he would close his shows with 25 minutes of dick jokes.

For those of you that have never heard of Bill Hicks, shame on you ! However you are in luck. Here is some stuff to remember him by.

Here are some youtube clips, but if you think you'll like him I suggest you go here and listen for free to some of his best live shows !

Gays in the military

It's just a ride - Positive drug story

The homeless

Terminally ill stunt people

Danceclubs (I agree 100%)

Marketing

Your Children Aren't Special

Another thing I share with bill is the fascination of the JFK assassination.

Smoking
Smoking2

Evolution (beautiful 2001 space odyssey reference)

Christ and Christians

Great times on drugs (someone cut these clips up so the whole flow of his set is gone, but it's still the truth)

Abortion

Some geezer on wikipedia wrote this:
Little of Hicks's material contained jokes related to the everyday banalities of life, with the majority of his act concentrating rather on the deeper issues of existence, interweaving above all political, psychological and philosophical concepts in a broad message that centered more on reflection than comedy; the comic moments were inserted almost as an afterthought to highlight the ridiculousness of a given situation, rather than being an end in themselves. Importantly, he would invite his audiences to think "outside of the box" and to challenge the hypocrisies of authority and the existentialistic nature of "accepted truth"

Bill got censored a lot and was hardly known in the United States. Then he went to England and he repeatedly sold out the biggest theaters. Later he got some fame in the US and then sadly he died because of cancer.

He liked to rant and this is his most famous one. A drunk woman is heckling hicks.
Possibly hicks is drunk too in this one.

Hicks also made some horrible kung fu movies with his friends (view Ninja bachelor Party). Something that I also did as a teenager, wow, we are so alike !

This or perhaps next year Russel Crowe will play Bill Hicks in a big hollywood production, I can't wait to see the end result !

Now add up the total number of points.

OVER 60 POINTS : Others see you as someone they should "handle with care." You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.


51 TO 60 POINTS : Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.


41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.


31 TO 40 POINTS (that's me): Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.
(It's all true)


21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every an gle and the n, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.


UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions & who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some peopl e think you' re boring. Only those who know you well know that you aren't.


Can't help it, I love dr Phil

Survival

Cup of coffee, a plane crash, and my views as the story unfolds

You probably heard, or maybe you didn't. A plane crashed not very close and not very far from my home and near the footballfields where I play. This news story ruined my day as I was watching the news with a cup of coffee and this story came in. I am absolutely FASCINATED by disasters for some strange reasons that I hope are not sick. I never managed to switch the TV of today, and in fact it is still on and I still haven't showered this morning! I know, I know I don't have to sit there all day to know what's going on, I can do something else and I will watch the evening news and then I'll know everything. But I can't ! It's not like I really sat all day behind the TV, it was on all day, but it was always within ear sight of me.

What I like to do I switch between channels and compare, what are these guys saying ? What are they saying ? To see a story unfold and how each channel reacts to it is an interesting thing to follow. Does this make me a newsaddict ? It's a spur of the moment thing and they all have their own different takes and twists and at times like these I feel that I am naturally hungry for information.

It baffles me that some networks somehow seem to forget important information which I have just seen on other channels and has been confirmed over and over again and sometimes even 20 minutes before was reported on other channels, what are all these guys doing in their newsrooms ?

Most worryingly was CNN that had huge difficulties with translations all morning. Honestly, I thought of calling them and doing it for them, in the first few hours they were terribly off at some moments. And their dutch reporter apparently had an off day, perhaps was even stoned. I know that it was probably her first big story, but get a hold of yourself woman ! She hardly made any sense and I felt like she was making up the story as she went along.

I am amazed whenever national geographic channel shows Aircrash investigation or seconds from disaster and when 9-11 happened I sat on the couch for days. But why ? Why is that ? I think I am attracted to disasters because it brings out humanities most basic of instincts, survival. That's also the reason why I think the movie Der Untergang is fascinating, because the behavior shown in that film goes directly against human nature; surviving. I hope I don't ruin it, but in that movie the third reich falls and the people in high places all commit suicide.
Survival is also why I am so drawn to conspiracy theories. Because they often (not directly) threaten humanity in some way. However I am not drawn to it in a sick way, and I was assured of that today when my eyes filled up when I realized that it was inevitable that people had died.

While I am fascinated by all this I am also amazed at a few others. Other headlines today ? RADIOSTATIONS BAN FLYING MUSIC TODAY !
I can understand that you want to do that, but why, why , WHY is that in the news ?

And at the first live press conference when the spokes person repeatedly and annoyingly answered the questions regarding to the passengers that he could not give out information at that moment. Then after some sensible questions another journalist (I honestly don't believe that she is, but what was she doing there ?) made a small variation on the previous questions and asks how many children were there on board.. A telling pause was what she got and then she got the same answer as the others received before her. Man ! so frustrating !


So is there a point to all this ? There has to be ! But there isn't one for once. But I just realized another thing, I think I want to become a documentary film maker.

The Great Dictator

I was reminded of this classic this weekend when it was on Television. The great dictator surely is in my top 10.

Made in 1940 and with the star Charlie Chaplin being the biggest thing in movies at that time, it certainly was a very very very bold movie to make. In 1940 they warned the world of what they felt was the evil empire. It took a lot of time and a lot of deaths for more people around the world to recognize that fact.

As it turns out, Adolf Hitler himself saw the movie several times in his own private cinema. It is not clear what he thought of it.

This movie makes me wonder, when common Americans knew about concentration camps in 1940.. what does the "ich habe es nicht gew├╝st" mean coming from the nazi's during the Nuremberg trials ('45-'46) ?

The only bad bit for me is the humor. I can't digg the slapstick, it ruins all the other humor in the movie, which is still great. The message is still very valid today, and that's what counts.

You can watch it below for free on google video. If you love cinema you should have already seen this classic.

The great dictator (1940)
Duration: 2 hours 5 minutes




The whole film is a build up to the final act. You can clearly see that Charlie feels and means every word he says, perhaps one of my favourite movie scenes ever. Charlie Chaplin kicks ass !

Barry Lyndon

I finally got to see Barry Lydon ! It was announced as a very boring movie, but just like other Kubrick films I couldn't move and never took my eyes from the screen for three hours! Great stuff !

This movie is of all ages and is actually about that. We never change do we ? You expect to see and experience different times but all that Kubrick does is to show us how little people and also societies change. Do we learn ? That's the question that Kubrick wants us to ask ourselves. I hope I do :)

It takes a great director to capture your attention for three hours telling you the story of Barry Lyndon. Fortunately kubick is that great director. Just like his other movies, it's the message that is important, and though superficially this movie is great (pictures) the message is perhaps even better. The movie is jam-packed with subtle emotions with great depth, irony, amazingly composed shots, In no other movie is it so clear to me that Kubrick had a history in photography before becoming a film director. The compositions of the shots are simply amazing. These are enhanced by special lenses that Kubrick managed to get a hold of.. sarcasm and different themes going on at the same time. There is so much to love about this film !

I'm a massive fan of Stanley Kubrick, the more I see and study his work, the more adore it. Just like with his other movies I consider his work art. His films all have a very special place in my collection.

geek fact:
The film is famous for its cinematography, which was overseen by director of photography John Alcott (who won an Oscar for his work), and for the technical innovations that made some of its most spectacular images possible.
Alcott used three f/0.70 lenses developed by Zeiss for NASA for use in the Apollo moon landings, which Kubrick discovered in his search for a lens that could film in low-light situations. The super-fast lens allowed him to shoot scenes lit with actual candlelight with an average lighting volume of only three candlepower. In fact, the film features the largest lens aperture in film history.

As always I will not properly review it because it will ruin it for everyone who hasn't seen it. And for those who did, what's the point ? You've already seen it !

Nevermind

Nevermind by Nirvana was a great album. Period ! I don't care if you don't like Kurt, nirvana or grunge. This IS a classic and for me it's in the top 3 90ies albums.

Released in 1991 it put nirvana where it should have been all along, on top of the world !
Unfortunately Kurt had some difficulties with that, but in the end he got his way and joined the 27 club.

Nirvana may not be around anymore, their music still lives on. This weekend I will start recording my own stuff again (yay) and one of the corner stones of my inspiration is Nevermind. Below is a documentary that goes into HOW Nevermind was made. Very cool stuff. Recording, writing & production, the whole shebang. Especially the production part is very cool, you will never listen to Nevermind the same way !

"abolish the World Bank and IMF"

I already mentioned that I did not approve of the way governments around the world are trying to solve this economic crisis. A man who agrees with me and who I think very much of is Jim Rogers! I've seen and heard so many interviews with him over the years.

In an interview with Sir David Frost on Al Jazeera television, veteran investor Jim Rogers pinned the blame for the economic crisis squarely at the feet of the Federal Reserve, and said that the World Bank and the IMF should be abolished, not given more power, if a recovery is to be made.

Rogers strongly slammed Obama’s stimulus package, pointing out that more good money was being thrown after bad, and that the bailouts were only making things worse. The veteran investor said that the U.S. was following the same disastrous policies as Japan in propping up companies that should be allowed to fail, and that the same consequences would be reaped as much as 20 years into the future.

(Feb 13, 2009)

There is more on the way, stay tuned.

Hear my train coming

Known and remembered for his skills on the electric guitar, but my favorite Hendrix moment is him play this 12string acoustic guitar. Awesome stuff !

Mind Control: America's Secret War

Newsflash: The CIA used to drug unknowing guinea pigs (people) in order to test their mind control weapons. It happened, no conspiracy theory here ! Truth can, and often is, strange than fiction.

Checkout this documentary by the History Channel. I classified this blogpost under the label 'tin-foil-hat' but that is actually not fair. Because the information that is revealed in the following documentary was all DECLASSIFIED (that means there is more, but for now this is what they allow us to know) YEARS ago. It's kinda old and very dated, but it is shocking all the same. It goes into the mind control experiments performed on mostly unknowing taxpayers !

This was one of the first (conspiracy)documentaries that I saw years ago and I remember that it absolutely blew me away at the time.

It takes only 43 minutes of your time.
America's secret war: Mind control


Puts a whole other light on Stanley Kubrick's movie; A Clockwork Orange, doesn't it ? Stanley as always was very aware of his surroundings.

Why is this stuff so cool ? The video actually doesn't say but these experiments were conducted mostly by nazi's ! No joke !

History lesson
After the second world war there were the Nuremberg Trials. All those Nazi's had to appear before a court and were given sentences. Except for the lucky few. The United States figured out that the Nazi's were very much ahead of their time scientifically wise. So in 1946, President Truman approved Project Paperclip, bringing Hitler's top scientists into the United States.

This is actually no joke, this happened. That's why all of a sudden the united states was the leading space nation and among the other scientists that were brought to America were mind control experts.

Additional video's
- 5 minute national georgraphic clip (also very cool stuff)
- Funny clip, some kid on LSD !
- American military test LSD
- LSD tested on British troops (space cadets!)
- Checkout this short documentary The most dangerous game, presented by the guerrilla news network. VERY COOL FOOTAGE !

Obama's valentine's day

The Obama administration was pushing for weeks that the bailout package/stimulus plan that was proposed had to be passed, it had to be passed, but no one could read it.

It had to be passed, as quickly as possible ofcourse, the longer they would wait, the worse the crisis would get. But as soon as the house and the senate passed it, Obama decides that there is no rush anymore. He takes a 3-day valentine's holiday and he will put his signature under the piece of paper later. He is not expected to sign the bill until tuesday so it's not in effect yet. I thought we had to rush things because of the crisis ? All that the world is waiting for is Obama's signature. What's the logic here, there was such a hurry to pass this right ? He even threatened the world with the word depression if this would not be passed quickly !

So what's the story here ?
Finally the house and the senate passed it, even though nobody had a real opportunity to read it. The 1100 page document was made public one hour before they had to vote on it.. ! Not even one day to read 1100 pages ! What kind of democracy is that ? Over the weekend analysts have begun looking at the fine print, and some of it is a bit scary !

Meet the new boss, the same as the old boss ?
The whole point was that the administration did not want that anyone would read the bill, and ofcourse, no one did read it. It includes all kinds of strange loops regarding healthcare and the government having access to computerized psychiatric records, the second amendment and possibly other stuff. The scary bit is the amount of politicians who are talking about this.. just a few. It should give you an insight in how many politicians are bought and paid for these days.

Hold on a minute, I remember another politician who used to do exactly the same thing over and over again. Man was he a pain in the ass ! And I never really understood why he did it. It was Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush ! That's right.

I don't get the joke here and it frustrates me. George Bush also "allowed" the congress to see the legislation he wanted to pass just several hours before they had to vote on it, and he too took sometimes weeks to sign the bills that were so absolutely necessary to pass. Is there a joke coming ? I really really really don't know, it just bugs me !

Is this somekind of inside joke, just to show us who is boss ? All this secrecy and seemingly abuse of power; WHAT's GOING ON ?¿?

Are the Chinese fucking with us ?

Alright. It's time for more conspiracy stuff on my blog. So you probably have heard about people doubting that the moon-landings really happened right ? Kinda cooky at first but I looked into the matter anyway. And I have to admit, there are (just) some strange things that demand proper explanation, however I don't believe that the moonlandings didn't happen ! Not yet anyway. There is a difference.

So in September 2008 the Chinese did their first space walk. For all the space NOOBS out there, a spacewalk is when an astronaut (or in the case of the Chinese, a taikonaut) leaves the ship while in orbit and just hangs around for a bit, chills while experiencing zero gravity presumably, feels like he is the bollocks, waves at the cameras and then goes back into the ship. The Chinese government was ofcourse very proud and boasted that china was the new technological nation to consider or something.

But within days conspiracy theorists started to go wild because they felt that China faked the live footage of their spacewalk. That's a pretty bold statement, so let's investigate !

As so very often, conspiracy theorists work through youtube, which is a really shitty way to prove a point concerning video images. You can view an example here, but I don't recommend it. Luckily there are links to the original footage in high definition. As you can see, there is stuff flying around. I have to say though, this is brought to you by the same people that claim the moonlandings never happened. To be honest, I have seen weirder stuff in my life but for now I still believe man went to the moon.

It is not just me and the conspiracy nuts from the internet that are looking at this. I did some searching and I found one "mainstream" article that talked about the discrepancies of the live footage. The article I found was by The Epoch Times (According to their own statement, the Epoch Times exists to provide what they see as uncensored coverage of events in China) and they interviewed a former NASA Scientist, mr Qu Zheng and he covers the points better than I ever will. So I will just post a link to the interview where he kinda says that he believes the live footage was a fraud. Read the article for your self because the points he covers are very interesting and he covers them in a very sensible way. What do you think ?

If you ask me, there is a good chance it is fake, the Chinese a brilliant at faking nike shoes, faking Ipods, faking watches, they are the best !

So is this stuff faked ? Just like the moonlandings the info provided all seems very compelling, but is it ? If the moonlandings were fake, why didn't the Russians speak out ? Or in this case, why didn't the Russians and Americans speak out ? Are they all in on it ? Aren't they paying attention ? Or is there some mutual silence or something ?

If you have info that I missed and need to checkout, please leave a comment below, as of today it is possible to leave comments here. Don't be rude, it's bad karma.

The longer the job description the less important the employee is

Last week I was promoted to CEO (Chief executive officer - the big boss - The longer the job description the less important the employee is) of my student company ! It's part of a mandatory part of my course, a group of students have to get together and start a REAL company. So now I am running a company with 11 people ! Obviously I am very excited about the responsibilities towards my employees and the shareholders of the company, they expect profits !
A lot of extra work is required and you have probably heard of the crisis that is going on making it a horrible moment for inexperienced students to start a company.

The Crisis
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.

Therefore my upcoming posts will be focused more on the current financial crisis, I will share my thoughts about it and most importantly I will try to answer the questions that no body seems to be asking: How the hell did we get here in the first place ? All that without boring you ! Furthermore I will go into why I wasn't surprised when this crisis started to unfold, why I don't think it's finished and how I only see one REAL solution to all this (if anyone can contact Obama, he needs to subscribe to my blog). I will also post some documentaries on the matter and I will analyze events as they unfold.

I realize all this economic talk might seem very boring and heavy. It actually isn't. The title of this website was taken from a quote ("It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. " - Henry Ford) referring to the economy and indirectly referring to the current crisis. That's why lots of people were not very surprised and that's why you have to start taking this issue seriously. Essentially the quote says; if people understood their world for what it is, they would do everything in their power to change it. It is obvious for me that hardly anyone seems to understand the problem we are facing fully and the solutions we are implementing will only make the problems worse in the long run. A definite case of a cure being worse than the disease. I truly believe that if people understood the problem for what it is that the people would be on the streets before tomorrow morning. But they don't. And to go out on the streets on my own before tomorrow morning is kinda pointless (funnily enough there was someone today outside of the station doing exactly this !). Therefore I will try to explain this stuff in the future without complicating things unnecessarily and ofcourse, when you understand, the task is yours to spread the word !

Time to light up

Valkerie; No kids, this is NOT a classic

Here we go, this new movie Valkerie, starring Tom Cruise, you want my take on it ? Are you ready for it ? It's a piece of shit ! That's all it is and it's time that someone said it!

I love history and a great story about WO II was operation Valkerie. So they decided to make ANOTHER movie about it, well, ok, great !

Don't believe the hype however, it truely is a piece of shit.
Besides loving history I love conspiracies, and on the poster it said Conspiracy, sounds like the perfect movie for me right, so why do I dislike it so much ?

And I am not even talking about the Germans talking with British accents in English, or the fact that Tom Cruise is in it (which seems to annoy a lot of people).

Again, why do I dislike it so much ? Well, honestly I think it is really sad that not only young people, but also people of my own age regard this movie as art. Honestly they do, calling it a classic. It really disgusts me quite a bit. What is happening to our culture ? Even going as far as comparing it with Shindler's list for example. That is simply NOT done !

(For a change) I would like to end my post on a positive note; I am happy to tell you that I have just seen Eyes wide shut for the 100th time and it's just like a great wine, it just keeps gettin' better with age ! Now THAT's a classic kids.

'The day the music died'

At least that is what the song says

The 3rd of February 1959, to some, is the day music died. Rock'n'Roll singer Buddy Holly (22years old) died along with his band in an airplane crash.

In 1971 Don McLean wrote the song American Pie (no not Madonna..) and dedicated it to Holly.

But february made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver.
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn't take one more step.

I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died.

Full of irony ofcourse, writing a song about when music died more than 20 years ago..

To end with a Neil Young quote here: 'Hey hey, my my, Rock'n'Roll will never die !'

Rant - 2nd february

Tonight I got home from school, had dinner, sat on the couch for a bit and then watched the news. Then I shouted for a few minutes at the television set. Then I doubted this great and "free" country for a while, and then I felt I had to blog about it! Damn, those fucking politicians again !

The Netherlands supported the Iraq war. That is, the dutch government at the time supported it. Over 70% of the population was against it at the time and in retrospect a lot more people feel that it was a bad idea. Regardless, the last couple of years people have been pressuring our prime minister to disclose the circumstances under which the war was supported. On what basis ? For years Balkenende toyed with words to stop the opposition from having an inquiry in the matter (and fortunately for him balkenende has a way with words). But yesterday he (had to) announce that he would start an inquiry himself !

Genius at work
You have to understand that the opposition asked for an inquiry done by the people that are supposed to do so under our constitution, but when Balkenende saw that an inquiry like that was inevitable he turned the tide by proposing an inquiry of his own ! Now it is him who appoints who will lead the commission and in doing so he has the guts to call it a true and independent investigation.

That's right, appointing the people that are supposed to dig out the dirt on Balkenende himself, sounds far from anything resembling to independence to me.
The opposition isn't very happy with this but they are ofcourse never happy with what a prime minister does (that's the way politics work right?). But I entirely support the opposition on this one.

This is the moment that I have lost all faith in you mister Balkenende. You have no honor, you have no pride. I don't care if there is a financial crisis going on, how can we call ourselves a democracy (and promote it around the world) if we start behaving in this way ? I don't know what there is to keep from the public and I refuse to speculate on the matters. All I know is that a government shouldn't have anything to hide.

This week the opposition will debate you, I'll video tape it all and watch your cowardly ass talk it's way out of this mess. You are a disgrace Mister Balkenende. Every disgraceful action by my government will lead to a reaction (in writing ofcourse), I guarantee that. And if you start to play with words again I will have something new to blog about, because you are not fooling me anymore sir, I caught on to your games ! And I will continue to do this until you stop, that's what we are at right now.

Fortunately you are not like those other world leaders that want to restrict free speech online (USA, Italy, UK, china ofcourse), but I have got a feeling that Europe will take care of that some day.

here is a video for the dutchies.

Kok, Balkenende, Clinton and yes Obama (I will talk about him in another blog), your all the same !
