Who decides what the president does?


 by James Corbett

Editor’s note: This was printed on February 25, 2017 at corbettreport.com

Greetings, Mr. President. Thank you for taking a few minutes to see me today. I understand your time is valuable, so let me get to the point: You thought that whole selection charade made you “the leader of the free world,” didn’t you? Like you were now in charge of the country and you could do what you want, right? Hahaha. Yeah, they all think that at first.

So now that that delusion is out of the way, how’s reality treating you? Not so good, huh? Wish you could just govern by executive order, don’t you?

Artificial Telepathy 101


by John Finch

The experience of “Artificial Telepathy” is really not that extraordinary. It’s as simple as receiving a cell-phone call in one’s head.

Indeed, most of the technology involved is identical to that of cell-phone technology. Satellites link the sender and the receiver. A computer “multiplexer” routes the voice signal of the sender through microwave towers to a very specifically defined location or cell. The “receiver” is located and tracked with pinpoint accuracy, to within a few feet of actual location. But the receiver is not a cell phone. It’s a human brain.

Out of nowhere, a voice suddenly blooms in the mind of the target. The human skull has no “firewall” and therefore cannot shut the voice out.

The receiver can hear the sender’s verbal thoughts. For this reason, the experience could be called “hearing voices” but is more properly described as “artificial telepathy”.

What Courts Vouchsafe To Do in Tasmania

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB

Last year at the Melbourne Fringe, Dee McLachlan read aloud some of Martin Bryant’s July 4, 1996 chat with the police. It was the first time I noticed a certain remark that Bryant made:

You’re in a little bit of trouble Martin aren’t you? Would you say?

I dunno, I spose I am. I’d like to get, get hold of some bail money. He said, are you Mr Martin Bryant? I said, yes. He said, you’re remanded in custody till this … inaudible … I didn’t even come to the hearing, okay ‘cos I wasn’t well … inaudible… I should see me solicitor about bail.

Using Tsarnaev’s Case As Basis for Real Indictments

I am 99% satisfied that Jahar Tsarnaev had nothing to do with bombing the Marathon, killing MIT Officer Sean Collier, carjacking Danny’s car, stealing Danny’s money, shooting at cops, throwing IEDs at anyone, running over his brother, going into a house in Watertown for a pee, or making any confession to interrogators at the hospital.

That being so, we should look for the actual perpetrators. I’ll sketch six crime scenes and ask who may be indicted.

pizzaJohn Podesta, caught in the Wikileaks dump-out

By Phil Hingston

I found most of the following information on Fiona Barnett’s website, pedophilesdownunder. If you haven’t already heard of Pizzagate, it is a scandal that resulted from the exposing of Hilary Clinton’s emails. A major player in this is John Podesta. One must accept that these codewords really exist, in pedophile circles. “pizza” = girl,  “hotdog” = boy,  “cheese” = little girl, “pasta” = little boy,  “ice cream” = male prostitute, “walnut” = person of colour,  “map” = semen,  “sauce” = orgy, and “handkerchief” = ???? WTF!

Wrapping Up the Year, A Feast of Gifts for Gumshoe

christmas gifts

by Mary W Maxwell

Gumshoe received some lovely presents in 2016 – new contributors, and new visitors, putting more life into our enterprise. Early in the year Mal Hughes joined us — he of “Return-to-Sender” fame. I refer to the letters he wrote to officials, over many years, in an attempt to get some action on the Port Arthur case.

Mal, who comments as “Aussiemal”, has also helped us with coverage of the Lindt Café Inquest, especially the bullets-or-pellets issue, and the Holsworthy mock-up (or non-mock-up as the case may be).

Now he is deep into the Great Australians Series (so far: John Stuart, Jack Absalom, and Wendy Scurr — and Mal is waiting for your entries as well). [Read more…]

The Man-made Origin of HIV/AIDS: This is NOT Fake News


by Alan R Cantwell, M.D., © 2016 (retired dermatologist)

Thirty-five million people worldwide have died of AIDS; and millions more are currently infected. How did AIDS start? My research suggests HIV entered the gay population via an experimental hepatitis B vaccine that had been contaminated by a chimpanzee virus.

This vaccine was administered to gay men in preliminary trials shortly before 1976-1977 and during the actual hepatitis B experiment (1978-1980) at the New York Blood Center in Manhattan. These were exclusively in young, healthy, primarily white and well-educated homosexuals in Manhattan. And it was closely followed by the “gay plague” of AIDS.

The Port Arthur Massacre: Fifteen Requests


by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

Seventy-two counts of crime were laid on 29-year-old intellectually handicapped Martin Bryant despite the authorities knowing that he did not commit those crimes (and knowing who did commit them).

So who did commit them? Hmm. I’d better peek into my wallet and see if I can afford to be sued for libel. [Read more…]

Electoral College, Part 3: Pussy, Trump, and the Vice Presidency


by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

Recently, the Republican candidate for president of the USA referred to a female colleague as a pussy. I suppose that’s not too bad. But now “a video has surfaced” – from 2005 – in which Trump talked about forcing himself on women, and used the phrase “grabbed her by the pussy.”

This has got the GOP – Grand Old Party — i.e., Republicans, into quite a state of animation. There is now much talk about the party itself unloading Trump as their candidate. The national chairman has advised “the vulnerables” contending for Congress to distance themselves from the pussy-grabber. [Read more…]

Electoral College, Part 2: Every President Needs a Down-to-Earth Cabinet

world meeting of families
by Mary W Maxwell

I think no individual is capable of handling the job of president of the United States.

This article does not propose a new set-up for the top job; I always like to stick with the old. But it’s an important point: Who has what it takes to be a leader of such an entity as a modern complex population with 300 million people? No one. Absolutely no one.

Electoral College, Part 1: Wonderful Responsibility of the Electors

Charles de Montesquieu quote

by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

During the Constitutional convention of 1787 in Philadelphia, the main work consisted of setting up the legislature, not the presidency. There had been an earlier structure, under the Articles of Confederation, which lasted from 1781 to 1787. In it, the states remained independent.

Under the new (1787) plan for a federated government, the choosing of the president would be done not by popular vote but by some individuals appointed by each state, who would gather and discuss good candidates. [Read more…]

Thespians Arise: a Play about Martin Bryant’s Trial

Awards Night at Melbourne FringeAward night at Melbourne Fringe, October 2, 2016

by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

On 18 September, 2016, I put on a show, for a tiny audience, at the Melbourne Fringe.

The name of the one-man show was Podstava, in honor of the late Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  I did manage to sing my new song “How Are Things in Assachusetts?” without going drastically off pitch, however I pretty well mauled the main act. It was a “Moot Court Trial for Martin Bryant.”
