Dozens of college-age men dead from ‘accidental’ drownings — but a team of retired detectives say the boys were drugged and killed by a shadowy gang with a sinister symbol.

THE DAILY BEAST — On the evening of Dec. 15, 2016, Dakota James called his friend Shelley in a panic.
He was cold, disoriented, and scared out of his mind, wandering the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, trying to find someone — anyone — who would help him.
“I don’t know where I am,” he told her, sobbing. “I’m so cold. Please help me. I’m lost.”
Shelley didn’t hesitate.
“I’m thinking, ‘Did he get mugged? Did he get beat up? Was he in a car accident?’” she told The Daily Beast this week. “I was so scared. I said, ‘Where are you?’ I’m coming.’”
“Pittsburgh’s North Side,” he told her.
She quickly hopped into her car to go get him, then remembered she could use her cellphone to figure out where he was because he’d enabled location services with her when she gave him a ride to the airport months ago. …

The TA previously compared Southern whites to “autistic kids.”

CAMPUS REFORM — A University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant wrote Wednesday on Facebook that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.” He added that to suggest otherwise is “a historical and dangerously naive.”
UGA philosophy TA Irami Osei-Frimpong made the comment during a conversation on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page. The comment has since been deleted. Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebook suspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said “in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die.”
“Killing some white people isn’t genocide; it’s killing some white people,” the UGA TA explained in a Medium post. “We had to kill some white people to get out of slavery. Maybe if we’d killed more during the 20th century we still wouldn’t talk about racialized voter disenfranchisement and housing, education, and employment discrimination. This should not be controversial.” […]
On Sept. 18, 1970, at the age of 27, American instrumental guitarist Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) died in London under highly strange circumstances. The coroner rendered an open verdict, meaning the death was suspicious.
Hendrix friends suggested he had become quite paranoid at the end. He told one friend that the next time he’d go to his hometown of Seattle, it would be in a pine box.
Hendrix spent much of his last day alive with German figure skater Monika Dannemann (1945-1996). The mainstream narrative holds that on the evening of Sept. 17, Hendrix took at least one amphetamine pill at a party.
Later, at Dannemann’s flat, Hendrix supposedly took nine of her Vesparax sleeping tablets. The recommended dose was one-half to one tablet.
Dannemann stated that “she left for cigarettes” and returned on the morning of Sept. 18 to find Hendrix in a coma at her flat. She called for an ambulance, which arrived at 11:27 a.m. There is no record of who had called the ambulance. Paramedics later testified that only Hendrix was there at the flat, and the door was wide open. Dannemann claims she accompanied Hendrix to the hospital. Paramedics say otherwise.
St. Mary Abotts hospital officially declared Hendrix dead at 12:45 p.m. The cause of death was asphyxiation through aspiration of vomit due to a barbiturate overdose. He just happened to have 42 tablets of Vesparax in his pocket.
In 1975, Dannemann gave hints that there was more to the story. “There is something really behind the whole thing,” she said, “and there’s quite a powerful group behind all that. I think it is the Mafia.”
In 1996, and at the age of 51, Dannemann was said to be ready to tell the truth. She was scheduled to appear on a show when she died under mysterious circumstances. Suicided perhaps.
The best theory is the Dannemann was paid off and threatened to cooperate with the killers. As we have seen with cases like the MLK murder and Oklahoma City bombing, cointelpro operations have an astonishing ability to surround their targets with treacherous people. There seems to be little shortage of treachery in this world.
One of Jimi’s paramours and confidants was super-groupie Devon Wilson, who was described as both “aggressive” and “protective” of Hendrix. Devon was also rumored to be a secret member of the militant political group the Black Panthers. She was loyal to him, expressed grave doubts about his surmise and started snooping around. For her trouble, she “fell” from a hotel’s eighth story five months after Hendrix’s death.
Hendrix associate James “Tappy” Wright says that Hendrix’s manager, Michael Jeffery, drunkenly confessed to killing him by stuffing pills into his mouth and force drowning him with several bottles of red wine because he feared Hendrix intended to dump him for a new manager.
Jeffery has received almost unanimous criticism from Hendrix biographers. Several have alleged that Jeffery siphoned off much of Hendrix’s income and channeled it into off-shore bank accounts. When Experience bassist Noel Redding inquired as to where Jeffery was going with briefcases of the band’s money, he was asked to leave the band. Jeffery openly bragged about Mob connections.
Hendrix claimed he was kidnapped and held by thugs for three days then “miraculously” rescued by none other than Jeffery. Hendrix called this drama staged. Hendrix was too weak as a stoner personality to assert himself against parasitic types. His energy was directed into the guitar, not gutter fighting.
A segment in Alex Constantine’s 2000 book “The Covert War Against Rock” reads, “Friends of Hendrix confiscated financial documents from his New York office and turned them over to Jimi: ‘One showed that what was supposed to be a $10,000 gig was in fact grossing $50,000.’”
In October 2006, a $15 million auction took place of items of Jeffery’s estate, including the rights to Hendrix’s hits “Purple Haze” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return).” Experience Hendrix, a company formed and owned by Hendrix’s family, said it will prove the family owns the rights to these songs and intends to sue.
In his book “Rock Roadie,” Wright says Jeffery told him in 1971 that Hendrix had been “worth more to him dead than alive” as he had taken out a life insurance policy on the musician worth $2 million and named himself the beneficiary. Two years later, Jeffrey was killed in a plane crash. Jeffery had a tendency to talk too much.
Bob Levine, who was the U.S. manager of the late guitarist at the time of his death in 1970, has an odd conclusion about Hendrix’s death. He claims Hendrix’s murder conspiracy was concocted by Tappy to sell books. Huh?
“I used to talk to Tappy every day,” Levine said. “I’ve known him since the early ’60s. He told me he was putting together a book about his years in the rock world. He told me, ‘Bob, I need a hook for the book. I need a handle.’ He needed something that would be a grabber. Well, saying that Jimi was murdered is a grabber; saying that Jimi was murdered by his manager is an even bigger grabber. But it’s certainly not the truth.”
Levine, who was not an eyewitness, then claims that Hendrix choked to death on wine “while vomiting.”
“He was with a girl who did give him some sleeping pills. Jimi always had a hard time sleeping, so he’d take pills to make him sleep. He had some wine, too, and went to sleep. But when it came time for the wine to come up — he had to vomit — he was literally knocked out by the pills, so he choked on his vomit.”
Attending Surgeon Describes a Wine Waterboarding
The only problem with your account, Mr. Levine, is that John Bannister, the surgeon who dealt with Hendrix at the hospital, said he had very little alcohol in his bloodstream.
“I recall vividly the very large amounts of red wine that oozed from his stomach and his lungs and, in my opinion, there was no question that Jimi Hendrix had drowned,” Bannister said.
He further elaborated to The Times in 2000: “’The amount of wine that was over him was just extraordinary. Not only was it saturated right through his hair and shirt but his lungs and stomach were absolutely full of wine.’ Bannister said he was DOA and likely dead for hours.”
The pathologist who did the autopsy on Hendrix, Donald Teare, reported a low blood-alcohol level.
Was Hendrix a Big Drug User?
Hendrix’s difficulties seem to have intensified after he spoke against the Vietnam war and his support of the Black Panthers. The FBI had a cointelpro file on him. He did a benefit for Bobby Seale and the Chicago Eight.
The set up? Toronto Supreme Court on Monday, Dec. 8, 1969, charged Hendrix with the possession of heroin and hashish found in his flight bag during a routine Customs examination at Toronto Airport in May, 1969. Band members Mitchell and Redding later revealed that everyone had been warned about a planned drug bust the day before flying to Toronto. Both men also stated they believed that the drugs had been planted in Hendrix’s bag without his knowledge.
By 1970 and soon after doing a Vietnam Peace Moratorium rally, for inexplicable reasons there was rioting and chaos (MH Chaos?) at his concerts. Staged perhaps?
Jeffery was devious and would book Hendrix for back-to-back, exhausting performances, keeping him in the air and on the move for long periods. In his last year, he was having difficulty keeping up the pace, and his band broke up. Shortly before his death, Hendrix filed a law suit against Jeffery.
Jeffery’s contract to manage Hendrix expired in December 1970. Without Hendrix’s agreement to renew, Jimi would be worth more to Jeffery dead than alive.
In other star-whacking cases in which the performer was losing his or her edge around the time of their death, sales surge after their takedowns. The created backstory used by the Crime Syndicate again and again are “drug overdoses”. Examples include Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Kurt Cobain. Plus, there are substantial insurance payoffs. Nightshade lawyers are in place to profit and fight over the estates. And then, like clockwork, there are the titillating, smear-job, cottage-industry, box-office movies and tabloids made about the star.
Hendrix is still subjected to rumor mongering and misinformation campaigns to this day. While performing, recording and touring, he seemed to be an adrenaline freak, working for long hours. After 1967 and at the peak of his game, he regularly smoked cannabis and hashish, and he used LSD and amphetamines. He was described as a “bad, mean drunk” — that is, when he wasn’t emptying his wallet buying rounds. Band drummer Buddy Miles later claimed Jeffery was procuring and dispensing LSD to Hendrix.
We recommend the following video, “Jimi Hendrix, the Last 24 Hours, New evidence,” starting at minute 00:44:00.
Winter Watch Takeaway: This was a standard Crime Syndicate hit performed by Operation 40 intel and the mob for multiple motives. The target in standard CS Operation Chaos style was smeared. Mike Jeffery worked in military intelligence (MI6) and had mob connections.
Although Jimi was decadent, he does not strike us as a discordian or Luciferian (see lyrics from “All Along the Watchtower below). He had serious social views. Toward the end, his music was less commercial, more spiritual. He wasn’t cut from the same Music Mafia 666 cloth as seen today or with others from that era. He was entirely self-propelled by his unique talent.
There are many here among us Who feel that life is but a joke But, uh, but you and I, we’ve been through that And this is not our fate So let us stop talkin’ falsely now The hour’s getting late, hey
Stanford-educated founder’s treatment intended to fight aging
By Ethan Baron | 17 January 2019
THE MERCURY NEWS — You don’t have to drink the blood of children to reclaim the vigor of your lost youth. You can mainline it. For $8,000 a liter.
Ambrosia, a startup founded by a Stanford Medical School graduate, has begun pouring the blood of the young into the hardened arteries of their elders in five cities, one of them San Francisco, according to a new report.
Founded in 2016 by Jesse Karmazin, an MD never licensed to practice medicine, Florida-based Ambrosia claims to be able to combat aging through infusions of blood plasma from younger people.
It’s now infusing patients in Los Angeles, Tampa, Omaha, Houston and the city by the Bay, according to Business Insider.
Initial interest was high, with about 100 potential patients contacting the company in the first week after it put up its website in September, the business website reported.
Tech entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel, who co-founded PayPal and Palantir and said in 2014 he was taking human growth hormone in hopes of living to 120 or beyond, has expressed interest in Ambrosia and said of death, “I prefer to fight it.”
So far, nearly 150 patients aged 35 to 92 — including 81 during a clinical trial — have received Ambrosia’s treatment, according to Business Insider. […]
THE NEWS & OBSERVER — Hyo Suk George lived legally in the United States for nearly 20 years before she voted in her first election, coaxed to cast her ballot by an enthusiastic town council member at church.
To register, she presented a green card, Social Security number and driver’s license — proof enough for the elections officials in Columbus County — then voted in 2008, 2010 and 2016.
But on Thursday, George, 70, faced charges of illegal voting from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for which she might have spent six months in prison. Instead, U.S. District Court Judge Terrence Boyle chastised the elections board in Whiteville, letting George go with a $100 fine.
“So they see a green card and say, ‘That’s OK’ because they don’t know what they’re doing,” said Boyle, chief judge of the eastern district of North Carolina. “They ought to be a little smarter than that.”
Boyle added “maybe as much attention as is focused on illegal voting could be placed on educating election workers.” […]
Proctor & Gamble and their overrated ad agency Grey appear to be flushing their Gillette razor brand down the toilet. And it is not just us saying it, Forbes ran a editorial as well, describing the ad as toxic. Have they determined that their prime remaining consumer base are solely cucks and pussy hatters? The razor brand has already seen it’s market share drop from 70% to 50% since 2010.
The 1:48 length video starts out with images of remarkably troubled looking men as a narrator makes reference to bullying, sexual harassment, and toxic masculinity.
Seriously Gillette? It’s just razors and shaving cream you fucking idiots! That’s it!
For those not familiar with the strange and offending We Believe: The Best Men Can Be ad-have a look. This abomination has 15.6 million views on You Tube and has been down-voted 778k to 377k. Considering these frauds buy voting bots, it is likely far worse than that. The market place can soon render it’s verdict, but I for one am done with this brand- an excellent boycott candidate.
The brand director for Gillette is one, Pankaj Bhalla. A South Asian is going to lecture westerners about abusing women? You can’t make this stuff up.
The ad agency Grey is a usual suspect as well. In March 2017, Grey’s London office announced its rebranding as Valenstein & Fatt for 100 days, to celebrate its Jewish founders and later executives, and to highlight prejudice in society. Proctor and Gamble is a client since 1956.
The Grey New York agency CEO is a Jewish whippersnapper one Debby Reiner. It is unclear what disconnected echo chamber rock she crawled out from under but among other brands she is flogging: “From Ellen DeGeneres for CoverGirl to transgender model Tracey Norman for Clairol to our Gillette Ask Dad, Grey’s advertising has put these mega-brands front and center in pop culture conversation, driven their growth and been honored at Cannes.”
At the other end of the spectrum are ads from Harry’s and Dollar Shave. They are funny and work, especially Harry’s ad about going up against “Big Razor”.
“The opioid crisis remains an abstract issue for many people; they still believe it will not happen to them, or it isn’t a risk facing them or their family,” Maureen Vogel, spokeswoman for the National Safety Council, told CBS News. “These numbers show the gravity of the problem our country is facing. We need to reprioritize and regroup, because all these deaths are preventable.”
FORBES — A California judge has ruled that American cops can’t force people to unlock a mobile phone with their face or finger. The ruling goes further to protect people’s private lives from government searches than any before and is being hailed as a potentially landmark decision.
Previously, U.S. judges had ruled that police were allowed to force unlock devices like Apple’s iPhone with biometrics, such as fingerprints, faces or irises. That was despite the fact feds weren’t permitted to force a suspect to divulge a passcode. But according to a ruling uncovered by Forbes, all logins are equal.
The order came from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the denial of a search warrant for an unspecified property in Oakland. The warrant was filed as part of an investigation into a Facebook extortion crime, in which a victim was asked to pay up or have an “embarassing” video of them publicly released. The cops had some suspects in mind and wanted to raid their property. In doing so, the feds also wanted to open up any phone on the premises via facial recognition, a fingerprint or an iris. […]
