• Here cometh the Sheriff's Men. Let Us Prepareth a Feast!

    Be it a feast they cannot resist! Let us have them long to join our merry band.

    Robin Hood meets the King (disguised as an Abbot) in Sherwood Forest. Asks the King (pretending to be a kindly Abbot) to Take Part in an Archery Contest. Robin then led our comely King courteously by the hand while many a deer was slain and dinner hastily made ready. Robin Hood and Little John generously served the King themselves, setting before him lean venison, good wastel bread, fine red wine and clear brown ale.

    'Good appetite, Sir Abbot,' said Robin. 'For good charity and for bringing me these tidings, blessed you must be. Before you go, you shall see what kind of life we lead so that you may inform the King when you see him.'

    Suddenly, the outlaws leaped to their feet and drew back their bows. The King looked aghast for a moment thinking they meant to hurt him, but instead they set up two rods as targets each fastened with a rose garland. The King remarked they were too far away - by fifty paces.

    'Whoever shoots outside the garland, no matter how close, shall forfeit his tackle and yield to the winner,' said Robin. Then he added with a glint in his eye: 'No man shall be spared so drink your ale or wine and be ready to receive a buffet on the head.'

    Twice Robin split the rod in two as did Gilbert of the White Hand. The best archer in the North of England, Robin Hood, did not spare Little John nor Will Scarlet when they both failed - he gave each of them a hefty thump. But the last arrow that Robin shot missed the garland by three fingers or more. 'Master, you have lost your tackle,' said Gilbert.

    'Come forward and take your pay.' Robin answered: 'If it is so, then let it be - Sir Abbot, I give you my tackle and I pray you sir, give me my blow.'

    'Even by your leave Robin, it is not fitting for my order to strike a yeoman for fear I should injure him,' said the King.

    'Strike boldly,' said Robin, 'You have my fullest leave.'

    With that, the King rolled up his sleeve and gave Robin such a buffet that the outlaw fell full length on the ground.

    'I swear to God you are a stalwart brother,' exclaimed Robin. 'There is strength in your arm and I have no doubt that you can also shoot a bow very well.'

  • Plunge Protection Team at your service. - In their own words

    Secrets Of The Plunge Protection Team
    The Four Derivative US Dictators. By Michael Edward, May, 2004

    There are just four people who control all of the U.S. markets through their use of dangerous and explosive DERIVATIVES. They are risking the assets and retirement funds of all Americans. Because of their manipulations, especially since 2001, U.S. financial markets are now based on the gambling whims of a special fraternity of Federal Government DERIVATIVE dealers.
    Take a plunge. Plunge on the Protection Team Railroad.

    This group is known among Wall Street as the Plunge Protection Team (PPT). Their "official" role was to prevent another 1987 "Black Monday". They have the entire U.S. Treasury at their disposal to manipulate the markets through DERIVATIVES (futures options). In other words, they are using the assets behind the U.S. Treasury to rig the prices of commodities (gold, currencies, etc.) and stocks.

    This fraternity comprises of Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan [Editor Note: Janet Yellen, 2014], the Secretary of the Treasury, and the heads of the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Association. It works closely with all the U.S. exchanges and Wall Street banks, including the largest DERIVATIVE risk holders Citibank and JP Morgan Chase.

    Few people are aware of Executive Order 12631 signed by Ronald Reagan on March 18, 1988. In a nut shell, this is the "authority" behind the four dictators and the [sic] "laws" and "regulations" that have backed their casino-style DERIVATIVE gambling spree since 2001. Here are some highlights of this Executive Order to ponder:

      Executive Order 12631 - Working Group on Financial Markets - Mar. 18, 1988; 53 FR 9421, 3 CFR, 1988 Comp., p. 559.

      "By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, and in order to establish a Working Group on Financial Markets, it is hereby ordered as follows:

      Section 1. Establishment. (a) There is hereby established a Working Group on Financial Markets (Working Group). The Working Group shall be composed of:

      (1) the Secretary of the Treasury, or his designee; (2) the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, or his designee; (3) the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or his designee; and (4) the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or her designee...

  • The Avengers! Circa 1960 - 2014.


    Patrick Macnee & Diana Rigg, circa 1962.

    The Avengers is a stylish blend of espionage, fantasy and quasi-science fiction that appeals to Anglophiles who enjoy witty, sentimental, slightly off-beat television, and don't mind terribly dated plots. While this British production acquired quite a global following back in the late sixties, it has until its recent cinematic debut been nearly forgotten, kept alive as a cult favorite by some of the baby-boomers who grew up with it.

    Airing in Great Britain from January 1961 through September 1969, and comprising 161 episodes, The Avengers became one of the most popular television series of all time, eventually reaching audiences in 120 countries, a record that still stands today. Much of the show's international popularity was due to the eventual pairing of Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg as uber-agents John Steed and Emma Peel.

    Curious events take place (usually involving murder), Steed and Emma investigate, there is a big fight, and at the end our heroes ride off into the sunset... Tongue... firmly... in cheek...

    Emma Peel (Diana Rigg)It wasn't until his third full-time partner, the brilliant Mrs. Emma Peel, that Steed became the highly sophisticated, ultra-British gentleman spy for which he is best known. And while some regard Steed as something of a James Bond knock-off, The Avengers in fact predated the 007 films. (Macnee has remarked that he hated Ian Fleming's stories, in particular the way James Bond treated women.)


    US Army, circa 2010
    Avenger Air Defense System is a missile system for short-range, mobile air defense protection for ground units against cruise missiles, helicopters, and fixed-wing aircraft. The Avenger has been used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. The Avenger was designated AN/TWQ-1 under the Joint Electronics Type Designation System. The Avenger system was placed around the Pentagon during the first anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attack.

    The U.S. military has openly admitted to protecting Afghanistan poppy fields.


    Despite Niall Ferguson’s efforts in 2003 to partially rehabilitate British imperialism in his bestselling Empire
    the subject still provokes angry debate. The recent revelations concerning the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s obliteration of archives dealing with British brutality in 1950s Africa and Malaya drew the Empire’s attackers and admirers into open combat. George Monbiot in the Guardian lambasted defenders of the imperial legacy, while Lawrence James in the Daily Mail argued that ‘the Empire was a dynamic force for the regeneration of the world’.

    The Opium Wars of 1839-42 and 1856-60 between Qing-dynasty China and Britain are a perfect case study of the international divergence of opinion that the Empire continues to generate. In China the conflicts – the first between it and a western nation – are a national wound: the start of a western conspiracy to destroy China with drugs and gunboats. In Britain the wars barely seem to register in public memory.

    It is perhaps in its attempt to provide a strong intellectual rationale for the Opium Wars that Leslie Marchant’s 2002 article most clearly shows its age. It begins with a discussion of the ideological differences between the two sides: the British attachment to free trade and progress jibing with the traditional Confucian bias against merchants and commerce. Many earlier western commentators tried to play down opium as the casus belli, asserting instead that a clash of economic and political cultures lay behind the conflicts. They sought a moral justification for wars that were essentially about protecting an illegal, profitable drugs trade.
