Residents All, Have You Done Your Duty?…

Posted in Governance, Politics, Voting with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2012 by informedminds

The local elections are over now, most of the numbers are in, the politically correct issues have been pontificated upon, the streets pounded, the megaphones packed away, the leftover leaflets lie waiting to be recycled. Interesting that nobody really wanted to talk to me about the upcoming “austerity” cuts, the complete cock-up that is the economy, the illegal wars, or the ever-increasing corruption though, not if they can get away with it of course.

A pitiful projection of 32% turn out of the dutiful Englishmen and women (estimated 40% in Scotland) have trooped out to make their contribution, often their only one to the political discourse. The projected voter share (if we are to believe the BBC) is as follows: Labour 38%, Conservatives 31%, Lib Dems 16%, others 14%. My area in Scotland seems to be about 40.58% turnout. simplistically, we’re talking about sharing a percentage of 2/5th of the registered voters, not even counting the total of potentially ‘eligible’ but unregistered (whatever their reasons) individuals. Autonomousmind had some cold hard reality in this post, the sad truth is that in the London Mayoral election an amazing 61.9% of people did not want to engage in the voting farce. Captain Ranty also had a fantastic take on the Insanity of Politics.

So where are you on the political spectrum; are you fervently active, politically engaged, on the fence, disillusioned, disenfranchised or just plainly don’t give a fuck?

Here in Scotland Graham Hope, West Lothian’s returning officer, said:

“Elections have a huge impact on all our lives, and it’s important that as many West Lothian residents as possible take part.

It only takes a few moments, but is such an important task, which allows residents to have their say.”

The followers of the cult of personality stride hand in hand to the polls with the serial conformists who always vote for their favored party, often despite proven poor track records and for whatever reason they care to have while those other dutiful voters who don’t know any other way to express their voice. At the macro we see the party lines with broadly written divisionist, favoritist policy and their ubiquitous broken promises; while at the local micro everyone’s talking points are roughly the same; local issues broached in general terms and platitudes to appeal to the receptive. I get really concerned when all these parties only argue over lesser issues like abortion, gay marriage, proposed social programs and reforms, the critical ones like illegal wars, foreign aid, climate change, economics, misappropriation of funds, public office misconduct and malfeasance, the black pit that is the EU, ridiculous monetary policy and the list could go on and on… There is however a remarkable (and highly suspicious) consensus on all these issues, I don’t care what tosh you see on question time, judge them on what they do, not what they say. Please note , if the ‘lesser issues’ comment above offends you then too bad, if an issue does not impact on the overwhelming majority of a community it is just not that serious.

A vote for me is a vote for [insert cause here]…

Social housing is always favourite, “last year we built so many… we will pledge to build so many…” Yeah, so what, then your local authority goes and turns them over to a “Public Private Partnership.” Nice!

The good little voters, vote decisively. The dutiful voters, vote as the feel they must. Disillusioned voters are often left to choose the lesser of two evils. Individuals like me, political atheists or at the very least agnostics, feel we cannot support such a system of governance  as we have come to realize it is. Then there is the disenfranchised, often the lower/working classes, ignorant and uncaring? Not hardly, enough know fine well what the script is, that the guys (supposedly) making the decisions are a bunch of lying, traitorous bastards hiding behind an increasingly thin veneer of an assumed and all too often unquestioned legitimacy. I don’t give a damn what colour their little plastic rosette is or if they seem sincere, the second they swear into public office they become part of a single homogeneous group that blessed by privilege and adored by lickspittle lackies to stroke their rapidly inflating egos. All of them eager to please, vying always for the next step on the ladder, to that they will almost inevitably step on anyone the need to in order to progress. The big league corruption and back room dealing might be reserved for the university toffs and their appointees but any reader of blogs like Enemies of the People knows that the government we get is defined by its leadership and moral principles from the top down.

Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.

-Michael Rivero

So is this what you are voting for? Really?

** Please note: I do not support any political party, period. **

BNP candidate Mike Whitby standing for elected mayor of Liverpool is accused of electoral fraud three days before the election and as you see from the YouTube clip above it was a very heavy handed affair to say the least. Whatever you think of his policy, this is ridiculous, undemocratic and unlawful. “We just want to talk” indeed! Did any storm trooper turn up to beat down the doors of the lying, cheating thieves in parliament for pocketing tens upon tens upon tens of thousands of public funds in the expenses scandal? Or what about those MPs that War Criminal Blair protected from Operation Ore with those D-Notices, the Honours for cash fiasco, the dodgy dossier…

Will these allegations be founded or not, buggered if I know, but the treatment that family received for daring to ask questions is a terrifying precedent. Today it’s the BNP, we don’t care for ‘racist thugs’ so it’s no skin of our nose many will think, but tomorrow you have to wonder, will it be me or someone I care for? What then?…

Government has a presumption of legitimacy?

The common man does more to defend the system than any PR campaign; by just accepting the status quo, believing that there is some ‘right’ form of governance. That’s a whole topic in of itself and one I will write on, but not today.

There is allegedly duty, a responsibility, even one may say an obligation. The question is to who? Yourself, the government, society, your progeny, or even your ancestry?…

That last one is especially interesting to me and seems to me to be nothing than a tired old statist apologist argument; my uncle’s brother’s grandfather (once removed) fought Hitler to keep our rights intact, to maintain our freedoms from dictatorship in the war, he was marched from Germany to Poland as a prisoner of war…” Yes, bad things happened in war, long before I was born and please people forgive me for saying this but, so what? I don’t say forget them, or not learn from them and just about every family was touched by that war seventy years ago, but what does that have to do with the current system? Where does that directly affect our lives and our ‘chosen’ government? I don’t feel any king of deep-seated genetic guilt for past deaths but I do feel guilty that in my past ignorance I was not out doing more to stop unlawful wars waged on brown people by those supposedly representing OUR interests.

I.e. It is not in my interest that they dropped a £500,000 cruise missile on a yurt in some country impoverished by decades of sanctions.

Just as irrelevant, and even more ridiculous is the, “you better hope you don’t have a problem,” pitch. I guess the assumption there is that I need, not may voluntarily want, the government intruding on my everyday life. Voting they believe is the only way to have a voice, I beg to differ, if there is a form of government necessary, then it must only be as a medium to do for the collective needs of the people what the people may not conveniently or practically do for themselves. OK, lets take a reasonable look at that one; Council Tax, we are told it pays for services and yet FOIA requests have discovered 50% of this seems to subsidise public pensions, then there was the Icesave debackle, if it was for services then how was there such sizable surplus to invest outside our own economy? I’m happy to pay my way, but where did I benefit from this?

What I see is increasingly militarized police, Demos groomed professional politicians, unaccountable NGOs, blatant revolving door practice between business and governance, corporate owned media whores, corrupt judiciary in a veritable kleptocracy. I’m by no means alone in seeing before me the absolute merger of state and corporate powers:

Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.

– Benito Mussolini

The online dictionary says thus:

fas·cism (fshzm) n.

1. often Fascism
a. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
b. A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
2. Oppressive, dictatorial control.

What few definitions will actually state is that fascism or corporatism (where the rubber meets the road) is where profits and assets are privatised while losses and costs are socialized. Remember these terms: “Too big to fail,” and “bailout.” So what I’m getting at is that if anyone still thinks that the above definition isn’t closer to the reality we actually live in, you are delusional. Every so often the ‘right’ people are elected, and we are allowed the opportunity to vote on them… Yeah! Great stuff, you get to choose the right or the left boot of governance that is upon our throats. Let’s look at it this way, we are back in a modern-day feudalism, we are tenants upon the land, seemingly owned by those that hold the right bits of paper that this system of governance recognizes.

Oh joy…

InformedMinds – v – The Judicial Mafia

Posted in Governance, Judicial Corruption, Law with tags , , , , , , , on April 23, 2012 by informedminds


I’ve been awfully busy of late though I am looking forward to doing a lot of posting in the latter half of this year.

My first bat is a little court fun I had over a civil matter, the council bureaucrats just don’t like to answer requests for clarification or have their pressumption of legitimacy questioned. The following is an account of the day back in February, round two (proofs) is (apparently) scheduled for the 27th of April.

Supposedly, for an eviction from a West Lothian Council (hereafter the Council) Temp-Tenancy of three years after two wholly and demonstrably unsuitable offers of permanent housing.

Let’s be clear, this is about me not doing as I was told, not settling for something just to tick bureaucrats checkbox and conform to a bit of arbitrary local government corporate policy, not even a by-law… Just “do as you are told, because we say so!” I have done nothing wrong, harmed none, it cannot even be argued that I am preventing anyone from excercising a legal ‘right’…

This is all about non-compliance.

The following is from my notes taken during the event, I have done my best to describe what was in effect two and a half hours of conflicting nerves and boredom with a mere ten minutes of relative  excitement. My notes were written at the time in the first person with a mind to be used in my sworn declaration (for you yanks that is accepted to have the roughly same weight in Scottish Civil law as an Affidavit) that I will be filing with the Clerk before the next hearing. But that is getting ahead of myself.

As you should be, I was in the lion’s den in plenty of time, at the desk I inquired about THE name, quoting the reference number and finding out which court room I was in. The offer of help from the “Advice Shop” I brushed off with simple thanks, but no thanks. So I waited patiently, watching the blissful sleepers drifting in and all unwittingly to be fleeced, the serial hard case offenders swagger past amongst the suits, black-robed vultures and the occasional policy enforcer wielding a deadly clipboard.

Never was it so clear to me that we really are the informed minority.

In the court I picked my perch in the back corner, readied my little A5 notepad, the pen, checked the phone for the last time and waited some more. The festivities, when they began, were only fifteen minutes late as The Man Acting as The Sheriff (hereafter merely referred to as the Sheriff) wandered in to sit on high. For those out with the land known as Scotland the Sheriff is I believe the equivalent of a county court judge.

Twenty one cases were heard before my turn; three people were granted a decree against them (with expenses awarded) and evicted as I watched. Continuations for the rest who begged leave of the COURT for its mercy. To stave off nerves I took notes on the business before the ‘court’. I caught the clerk eyeing me intently more than a few times but I stayed focused.

It should be noted that on numerous occasions I caught the Clerk of the Court watching me throughout the next couple of hours.

The case number was called.

The name game was played very briefly, “are you Mr InformedMinds?” not wanting to make a fuss I just replied “I am known as that.” A number of eyebrows went up, but nothing was said. I had decided not to accept his oath at this time, I know fine well he would not be able ‘hear’ me in this “court”; instead I had opted to get the matter out of summary causes, the route I viewed as being the least contentious. Let’s be clear, this is a Council opposing me, they have deep pockets and a bevy of petty bureaucrats with grudges that I probably should not have embarrassed quite so much in publicly exposing their fictions. I really did piss them off, how dare I, a lowly peon, dare to ask questions they will not or cannot answer.

The Council Representative made a rather presumptuous opening I thought and could be summed up I’d say in the following:

  1. The council claims to have served all notices and summonses properly. [Bull-biscuits!]
  2. That the (alleged) defendants have not engaged in any communication. [Bull-biscuits!]
  3. That there are no arrears or complaints made against us. [Actually they owe me money!]
  4. I apparently have refused two “reasonable” offers of housing. [More Bull-biscuits!]
  5. Thus they desire a decree and expenses for simple repossession. [Cheeky blighters!]

That’s right; their whole attack rests upon ONE (as yet) unsubstantiated claim and process.

I started straight off by moving to remove any controversy, saying that I did not understand the nature and cause of the proceedings as I in fact did not see that I had an argument with the Council. Around me I noticed the sudden change in the court staff, up till now only one case had not been a total turkey shoot for them. I continued, rebutting the absolute bare-faced lie about the lack of engagement.

I asked pointedly. “First off, is the representative of West Lothian Council claiming they were NOT in receipt of a private correspondence between one Caroline Polson, acting in the capacity / Office of Housing Manager and myself, which I will attest to having delivered by hand?” The council representative declined to answer or deny my question though she scribbled furiously on a VERY official and EVER so important looking collection of forms. I did however tell them that I had declined any and all oral communication via telephone. When asked why I merely stated that I was not obliged to do so, instead I had previously demanded that all correspondence was written as I did not trust the Housing Officers to not misinterpret what I said to them. I went on to state that I still, to this day, wanted to talk to the Housing Officers to resolve this fiasco, I just want them to answer my bloody questions and acknowledge my requests for clarification.

I next tackled their assertion about a correct and proper notice / service process being completed. I asked if there was any evidence that I had accepted or was in receipt of these notices or a summons. The Sheriff jumped on that smartly, telling me “that was not required.” I was ready too, countering with, “would not that be an assumption of service and was I obliged to accept that assumption as fact and applicable?” He didn’t want to touch that one for some reason, can’t think why… The Sheriff held up a stack of stapled paper and began speaking about a summons. “What summons?” I asked. “This summons,” he said with gesturing with the stack of paper. “I see no summons,” I replied. His face was priceless and though I was too focused to look about, I knew every eye was on me.

To add insult to injury for the Council I then went on to voice my grave concerns about the alleged service Notice to Quit (supposedly served on the eleventh of July 2011). The nice lassie (acting in the capacity of a Housing Officer) did assert that I would denied a right to appeal a “decision” unless I accepted their envelope purported to contain both a notice and a letter which she claimed gave me a “right” to appeal. As yet, I informed them, I have not seen any evidence of this decision upon which they claim to have had the right to issue a Notice to Quit despite my numerous queries. Yet again there was no comment from the Council representative but for more furious scribbling. I continued, demanding that I see this decision; I had to be certain the Council had taken into account all the factors which had been presented to them, which I outlined to him briefly. I insisted that The Sheriff had an incomplete understanding, as the Council had failed to provide any substantiation to their claims. I was a bit surprised when the Sheriff actually openly admitted he had no knowledge of the Council’s decision made against myself.

I pressed on, demanding to know who was to benefit from these proceedings; I stated I was not a lawyer but that I set great store in my own common sense which told me that this nonsense was a waste of everybody’s time. Nothing would be changed by the Councils attack upon me and my family save but to our detriment, the Council’s liabilities remained the same as our housing requirements and situation would be unchanged. The Council representative again said nothing.

We moved on to address the Council’s primary claim that I had “refused” their “reasonable” offers. “What evidence is there that I refused anything?” I asked the Sheriff, which was met with more static. When asked what my opinion was, I was quite happy to respond (though I did consider staying silent) by repeating what was already in writing to the Council. THEIR legislation states suitable, not reasonable which seemed to me to be a compromise, made suitable by agreement. The offered properties were by their own Allocations policy not “suitable or fit for purpose” based on our family and circumstances, all this I stated had been communicated to and as yet unrebutted by the Council. The Council representative again declined to comment it seems.

The Sheriff made an attempt here to accepting their adversarial system by asking me if that was the defence I would be submitting. “That depends”, I responded, “I have not yet been persuaded that there was a controversy upon which to defend.” He tried a few times more though I fended them off.

Talk about putting a cat amongst the pigeons, eh? This at last spurred the Council representative in to action. She pounced, demanding that the Court require “Mr InformedMinds” enter a written defence (which of course would serve to validate the controversy they wish be adjudicated upon). This was to become quite comical because the Sheriff start to say that someone representing themselves would not normally be required to do so, then he stopped and instead asked me if I would be “willing” to do so.

My sole concession to considering his offer was an “hmmm.” I quickly corrected the Sheriff on his error, informing him that I was not representing anything, that I am presenting myself and liable for any and all of my actions and obligations before I told him no, I would not be willing… Though I would however be entering a Sworn Declaration under penalty of perjury to attest to the facts as I knew them.

That seemed to throw him a bit and he quickly assured me that “would not be necessary“. I responded with, “maybe not, but it was what he was going to get.” Neither the Sheriff nor the Council representative made any further issue of this, instead moving on to “require” me AND my wife to make an appearance for a full hearing for Proofs. I rejected out of hand that my wife be subjected to the strain of these proceedings. I stated that my wife was of delicate sensibilities and as I have her complete trust and authority to act in her stead. I was asked if that could be provided in writing, I declared it could. I pressed on asking was she in any way obliged to be present. The Sheriff then affirmed that she would not.

Finally the Sheriff asked if I would be “willing” to appear on the 27th of April 2012, I agreed that I would, but that it would be under threat and duress. I stood up smartly, turned, never looked back and paused only briefly to collect documentation from a Clerk. The looks though on the sheeple waiting to be fleeced said it all, “what in the hell just happened there?

So… Not perfect by a long shot, but I’m not looking to ‘win’, I just need to stop THEM from winning for a few more months. After all, the burden of proof is theirs, not mine. Watch this space.

The Great 2011 Census Heist – We Told You So!

Posted in Census 2011, Governance, Hacktivism, Lawful Rebellion with tags , , , , , , , on June 23, 2011 by informedminds

It all started with this PasteBin Link and I’ll be clear from the outset, it’s all unconfirmed so far.

I read in the Register:

“Greetings Internets,

We have blissfully obtained records of every single citizen who gave their records to the security-illiterate UK government for the 2011 census   We’re keeping them under lock and key though… so don’t worry about your privacy (…until we finish re-formatting them for release)”

In response the Office of National Statistics (ONS) had this to say:

“We are aware of the suggestion that census data has been accessed. We are working with our security advisers and contractors to establish whether there is any substance to this. The 2011 Census places the highest priority on maintaining the security of personal data. At this stage we have no evidence to suggest that any such compromise has occurred.”

Sky news have been quick to set out the ‘authorized’ line, the usual pre-trial sentencing on the alter of public scrutiny has begun in earnest, article here. It must be said that this 19 year old lad, named as Ryan Cleary has been hurriedly ‘associated’ with a number of recent (and very convenient) high profile cyber-attacks. The usual sheeple will of course fall in line with the standard line of ‘where there’s smoke, there’s fire,’ whether the lad is innocent, or not. I say convenient simply because only a fool would fail to see that this ‘opportunity’ will be seized on to its fullest to bring in a whole heap of regulation and censorship upon the only source of unfiltered information on what’s really happening in the world. Articles aplenty litter the net on the Internet 2, internet ‘driving licenses’ and even just plain preferential bandwidth for those sites that ‘toe the line’ as opposed to those that would question and dare I say possibly object to being force-fed complete shite!

So it should not come as a surprise that I’m hardly surprised if this has happened. People allowed themselves to be deluded into believing their private details would be kept confidential, though it never could be and all they had to do was read the clauses within the bloody PRIVACY STATEMENT. The blog Wasps Nest did excellent posts on this subject last October entitled “2011 Census – who gets your information?” and “2011 Census – the ONS responds” both of which spelled it out quite clearly.

FOIR – Access to census data by “law enforcement” authorities

Cyber Fascism Coming Your Way

Now, to talk of the ‘attack’ itself and what might be coming down the pipe in the very near future.

If its legit, not a hoax which is making my gut twitch just thinking about it, and the motifs of these “hackivists” are true, then sure, you may argue that the ends justifies the means. Certainly this seems to be a position favored by a great many on the various social networking sites.

Others though, not just vested interests and shills, will flat out denounce this as the work of completely unaccountable nobodies running amok with potentially ulterior motifs and that unknown scares them more than the at least partially accountable (often corrupt) officials in the public offices… They at least are quantifiable, we expect the worst from those parasites, it’s no surprise when they talk out their arse and fail to keep their promises.

Morally on the other hand… I’d have to point out that any infringement on anothers personal information is essentially wrong, but for a slight ‘legal’ justification in this case, that being those who actually signed that declaration on the 2011 census gave up property rights on the data submitted to the Crown via its agency the ONS (see below).

We were originally assured by the ONS that:

“ONS has put in place additional contractual and operational arrangements in the 2011 Census contract with Lockheed Martin UK to ensure that US authorities could not gain access to census data.” Those arrangements included:

  1. All data processing will be carried out in UK – no data will leave or be held at any point outside the UK
  2. All data is the property of the ONS and only UK/EU owned companies will have any access to personal census data
  3. The only people who have access to the full census dataset in the operational data centre will be ONS staff
  4. No Lockheed Martin staff (from either the US parent or UK company) will have access to any personal census data
  5. ONS will control system access rights to all data systems
  6. Everyone working with census data will sign declarations of confidentiality
  7. Independent checks by an accredited UK security consultancy of both physical and electronic security are carried out for ONS.”

That signature gave up any legal claim to the information submitted by you upon their forms, not that its un-winnable, there’s always lawsuit for tort for example. Can we say we have been damaged by this fiasco (suffered personal loss) by this loss of privacy?


Can we we say that there was an expectation of every measure being taken to protect the data obtained under the threat of reprisal (initiation of force) for non-compliance?

Yes, this was expressly declared on the mainstream media relentlessly…

Was this a breach of civil duty and trust?


All then that is required surely is proving their negligence and Lockheed Martin already had to put their hands up to a failure of RSA security tokens and a subsequent security breach.

So you have to ask, why they are putting the information on a network that can be accessed with, it would appear, relative ease via the internet. Sounds somewhat risky to me… Though what’s a little more bad press for the ONS (with Lockheed Martin to use as whipping boy/scapegoat in the daily rags) a small price to pay for some seriously freedom curtailing legislation to throttle the internet, i.e. make the hosting companies liable etc for the content… to protect our liberties of course… and our data… oh, and to stop those gosh darn terrorists. (God I wish I could truly express the intense sarcasm that is dripping off that last sentence!)

But the plot thickened immediately as LulzSec disavowed the alleged census hack, as it must, when the indoctrinated masses are well used to these shenanigans, though their 15 minute attention spans help the propagandists craft such a fine dramatic farce to keep them occupied.

So what did the LulzSec twitter feed say?… Drum roll please!

“Not sure we claimed to hack the UK census or where that rumour started, but we assume it’s because people are stupider than you and I.”

This is followed by:

“I’m not seeing “we hacked the UK census” on our twitter feed or website… why does the media believe we hacked the UK census?”

A previous message noted:

“Seems the glorious leader of LulzSec got arrested, it’s all over now… wait… we’re all still here! Which poor bastard did they take down?”

Now the only thing I want to know is who’s perpetrating this apparent hoax, who benefits from the heightened atmosphere of cyber-fear? Hmm, I wonder…

Michael Quinn vs Allied Irish Bank Receivers

Forum Discussion [here]

Michael Quinn, a respected business man of 25 years who in 2001 single handed fought off a band of ram raiders, has been fighting off raiders of a different sort, the economic terrorist from the twice PUBLIC bailed out Allied Irish Bank (AIB).

Here is the quality of the man in question:

SHOOTOUT HERO; Store boss Michael opens fire as ram raiders run him down.


A FILLING station owner was run over by a getaway car yesterday in a shootout with a gang of ram raiders who smashed their way into his shop

Michael Quinn, a 38-year-old father of four, went down fighting after he tackled the gang single-handed.

The four robbers tried to kill him as he blocked their way, mangling his legs under the wheels as he was dragged along the road. The raiders struck at Cloughvalley Stores on the main Dublin-to-Derry road outside Carrickmacross in Co Monaghan at 4.10am.

The gang lifted a manhole cover on the man highway near the store to cut a telephone cable to the complex which operated the alarm system.

They smashed open the door but triggered an inside buzzer which awakened Mr Quinn who was sleeping in his house next door.

When the alarm went off, he grabbed a legally held gun and ran to the store where he was confronted by the armed raiders.

After an exchange of shots, the gang ran outside to a waiting silver Mitsubishi car which had the number plates removed.

Mr Quinn ran after them and aimed at the driver, forcing him to stop.

But as he was waiting for Gardai to arrive, the car was suddenly started and driven at him.

He was knocked to the ground and suffered a broken leg.

Gardai failed to stop as it sped towards Carrickmacross.

Mr Quinn was treated at the scene for severe leg injuries and later taken to Navan Hospital where he had surgery yesterday afternoon for a compound leg fracture.

He was described last night as “fairly comfortable”.

Locals praised him for his bravery in tackling the gang.

His shocked wife Bridie said: “It was a terrifying experience for us – thank God it didn’t end worse.”

Another resident said: “Michael is the hero of the town. He was very brave to take on these criminals – he could have been killed.

“We hope the Gardai will be successful in apprehending them.”

A Garda spokesman said: “The way in which the gang cut the alarm system indicates they were professionals, possibly operating out of Dublin or some other large centre.

“The hunt for the raiders is continuing.”

Carrickmacross council chairwoman Rosaleen O’Hanlon said: “We all deplore this type of crime. Mr Quinn must be commended for his vigilance and the great courage he displayed.

“These people are ruthless and will stop at nothing to snatch other people’s hard earned cash or property.”

Lets be clear, Michael has not refused to pay anything as you can hear for yourself in his own words as a group of selfless men and woman dig deep to lend whatever aid they may to fend off trespassers and their hired “security” from an American company K Tech Security. The bank maneuvered them with words of encouragement in regards to a potential (positive) solution to a ongoing matter the bank has been remiss in dealing with, into leaving their private property while they attempted to muscle the couple out of their property.

A description of events by: Darrell: of the Ancient Clan O’Deaghadh

Military Lockdown by AIB!
Yesterday, AIB were involved in a Military Style lockdown at a family owned and run shop in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan.

Carricmacross Siege.
The shop; Clough Vally Stores is owned and run by Michael & Bridget Quinn. It is one of the biggest people employers in the town of Carrickmacross and the greater Monaghan region.

AIB Lied!
AIB on the previous Monday blatantly lied to Michael & Bridget. Bank officials told them that they wished to meet them in Dublin on the basis of working out a plan or deal on which their business would continue to trade and operate. Michael and Bridget were elated. They drove to Dublin …

Surplus to Requirement!
When they got to the meeting, they were told to pack their bags, that they were no longer required, & that the bank were currently meeting with their employees, behind their backs, to tell them that the Bank, AIB and their receivers, Kavanagh Fennell had taken over.

Dirt … Kavanagh Fennel.
We also discovered that the employees were and have been treated like dirt by Kavanagh Fennell receivers. Staff were told that if they didn’t like what was happening, they could pack their bags and go.

Military Occupation.
Kavanagh Fennell on instruction by the AIB, proceeded to lockdown the building using a military style security firm called K-Security. They took out the safe, changed all the locks and proceeded to patrol the supermarket grounds and shopping area, as some shoppers have described them, like “Nazi storm troopers”.

AIB Stole the Money!
Yesterday afternoon Michael, Bridget and three generations of their family decided enough was enough. In began to dawn on them what AIB were doing to them. AIB had stolen their business, without Lawful authority whatsoever  and were now in occupation of their property.

Bare Knuckles.
Michael, Bridget and their family had worked their knuckles bare for the past 5 years, and had given everything to the AIB. The business and the way they ran things was and still is profitable, viable and effectively run.

AIB Corrupt Bankrupts.
Here are a known bankrupt and corrupt bank, that have gone begging to the Government to receive hand-outs, off the backs of the People of Ireland, because they could run a proverbial “piss up in a brewery” … ironic really.

AIB Lied, Conned and Robbed … FACT
They; the AIB have lied and conned, and ROBBED this family, out the doors of their own business, that they have been successfully running for generations. To copper fasten this CON, the AIB instructed, without any Lawful authority or agreement form the Quinns, a receiver and military style security firm, to make sure that the Quinns are physically kept out of their own property, while the AIB can go in and literally, harass the staff, rob the cash & strip and ruin business.

Unlawful Operation.
The AIB’s big plan was in full swing, and was working up until yesterday afternoon. Michael and Bridget decided to go back into their business yesterday, and let the AIB that they were not welcome and to cease and desist their unlawful operation.

Militia of Kavanagh Fennell.
They peacefully walked in, and instructed a locksmith to change the locks on their Property, & were immediately met with some very fierce & belligerent resistance from K-tech, the military style militia of the receivers of Kavanagh Fennell. Despite the fact that Michael repeatedly instructed that the security firm to back down and leave their property immediately, because they were now trespassing, they simple ignored him, and obstructed the locksmith from carrying out his duties.

Gardaí Ignore Criminals in Action.
In order to keep the peace, Michael himself called Carrickmacross Gardai. The Gardai did turn up, instead of proceeding to lawfully keep the peace by arresting & removing the men that were now trespassing, they told the Lawfully appointed locksmith to leave. At which point another man, that was called by the trespassers arrived and proceeded to undo the work of the locksmith. The Gardai ignored this criminal behaviour.

Wash Their Hands.
Michael proceeded, and lawfully arrested the trespassers, and instructed the Gardai to take them into custody. They ignored him and walked away. The Gardai could have ended the matter there and then and everyone could have gone home peacefully.

K-Tech American Style Military Security in Ireland!
Michael was left with few options. The Gardai were NOT acting as Gardai and keeping to, and operating under their sworn oath of office, to keep the peace of Michael & his family, his business and the people and staff members present. They had now stepped into the realm of colluding with and facilitating criminals and their criminal behaviour.
i.e. The AIB Bank, the receivers Kavanagh Fennell & the military security K-tech Security.

500 Townspeople, RTE etc.
More people started to get involved. More locksmiths were called. Another security consultant arrived. A female receiver barricaded herself into an office and refused to leave the property. More Garda arrived. RTE turned up. There were journalists there, amongst a crowd of over 500 local townspeople, that turned up to support Michael & Bridgets lawful actions. Three generations of the family were now trapped in their own property by the unlawful receivers and security firm. The Gardai now took up the role of trying to convince and cajole Michael and Bridget to leave their own property.

Inspector McGadget Arrives.
A friend of Michaels arrived and spoke directly to Inspector Fintan Mc. Tiernan … Fintan had earlier been instructed to take the security men, and receiver woman into custody, that they were under arrest. Fintan ignored these clear instructions.

AIB Allegations Explained.
Michaels friend explained to Inspector Fintan McTiernan the situation about AIB.
He proceeded as follows … AIB were and had made serious allegations about the Quinn family and their business owing the AIB money (a Civil matter).

Verify and Document the Obligation.
Michael had Legally & Lawfully requested that the AIB substantiate any claim, they feel they had, via written documentation and verifiable accounting. That he was “more than happy to pay any financial obligation that was lawfully owed as soon as he received or could properly  inspect original of the three documents listed below”.

1.    Validation of the debt — The Actual Accounting (the Banks accounts).
2.    Verification of the AIB’s claim via a Signed Invoice or Sworn Affidavit.
3.    A Copy of the Lawful Contract binding both parties.

Michael did not and has not refused to pay the bank. He did not stop paying the Bank! As far as we know he is STILL paying the Bank. Instead of positively responding to this Family and working things out with them amicably, they, the AIB have just ignored their Legal & Lawful questions and sent in the Storm Troopers, supported by “our” Gardaí.

“Is this what happens when We ask Questions?”

People of Ireland … are WAKING UP.
Last night we got a sign of the pain that the real people of this country are suffering, the internal, external, psychological and emotional turmoil and abuse that we are all being out through. Not just by the AIB, but ALL the Banks, the Corporate Government and the Draconian Judicial system and so called Legal professions. Has it gone so bad, that a bank think that they can waltz in and completely devastate and destroy a man, a woman, our families, a community, a town and now a country, and just get away unscathed?

Carrickmacross is the final straw. The people in this not so sleepy little town are waking up this morning, to a new awareness. Carickmacross is the turning point for ALL OF US. All the Banks have been operating in one massive FRAUD. People of Ireland, Stop giving them any More of your energy. STOP PAYING DEBT … IT IS AN ILLUSION!

Read this eBook for FREE and start educating yourselves TODAY.
“Blank of Ireland … THIS WAY OUT!”

The Quinns did, they asked questions, demanded answers. These BRAVE PEOPLE have taken back their lives, their business and their community.

Do the same for yourself.
Stand on your freedom & do the right thing.

A man near 70 years old man, one Tom Kennedy was arrested on his farm in Thurles, in the Republic of Eire, a claim has been made on HIS land, this has been in the courts. Four Garda Siochana, who had appeared in two cars and a paddy wagon, smashed the window to his car in which he had sought refuge after informing them they were not to trespass upon both his rights and the land clearly marked as private property, and leave him in peace.

The Gary Null Show – 01/27/11
Date January 27, 2011

* Permission was sought and granted for me to post this show. *

Gary Null interviews Dr. Andrew Wakefield and he is a renowned gastroenterologist specializing in inflammatory bowel disease and the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine or MMR. He is a former Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and has published over 130 original scientific papers and medical studies. In the course of his work, Wakefield found himself the subject to published claims of deliberate fraud by investigative journalist Brian Deer, resulting in a complex, multi-faceted scandal which, to date, has endured without a definitive resolution.

Also, we have Clifford Miller and he is a lawyer in Kent in the UK and a solicitor of the supreme court of England civil proceedings, who has specialized in intellectual property, anti-trust and legal issues in the electronics and communication fields. Over the years he has been active in investigating vaccine issues and science.

Also, we have Isabella Thomas and she is the most vocal of all parents involved in the initial study conducted by Dr. Wakefield. She has two autistic children that were both patients in the Royal Free study documented in the Lancet report. Out of her four children, only the 2 who received the MMR vaccines have serious bowel disorders and autism. She is also the main parent that Brian Deer has been attacking, even though she is not a member of any anti-vaccination group in the UK.


Too Busy Bitching About Broken Windows…

Posted in Lawful Rebellion, Politics, Protest, Spin with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2011 by informedminds

I wonder how this world we are given to live in, with all its benefits and privileges, would look if we were able to hold those who lie to us, steal from us, abuse our misplaced trust. Be they in the government, judiciary, financial, religious, armed forces, police or any other ‘public’ office), up to the same level of scrutiny as is imposed on those who point out their lies…

Ever heard of malfeasance in public office? Sort of rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Or here’s a good one, what about treason? I could go on, the list of their crimes are myriad and guarded too by those we also trust to protect our collective rights…

No? – But we can sure bitch about a few busted bank windows and some graffiti, bemoaning the “damage to private property” but lets not worry about the devastation wrought by banker manipulation, fraud and let’s not sugar coat it and call it anything less than financial terrorism.
