Into the black
Out of the blue and into the black
They give you this, but you pay for that - Neil Young
Just three intimations that the world is not the world.
An update on the killing of Pamela Vitale, wife of attorney Daniel Horowitz who had been defending Susan Polk in the murder of her husband Felix, whom she had accused of mind control and Satanic Ritual Abuse.
Sixteen-year old suspect Scott Dyleski shared a home in the Lafayette hills made out of recycled materials and straw-bales with his mother, Esther Fielding, and two other families. Fielding is a New Age healer. Thanks to Steve Huff and "hmm," her commercial website can be found here.
There was speculation in the comments to the original post that Dyleski was himself mind controlled. For what it's worth - and who can tell what that is? - let's note that one of the treatments his mother offers is non-invasive removal of "Government and Alien Implants":
Of course this sounds like something from the X-Files, but we know they exist. We have put our belief systems aside when it comes to viewing inside the body and what it reveals. Implants, which are easily inserted through injections or inoculations, are used by our "secret" government to track or program its citizens. Then there are the Grey aliens--they place non-earthly implant material in selected humans who have either been abducted or are being tracked....
Our group has worked in removing implants through the use of Orion remote viewing techniques. By using a command, our clients have felt a difference when the implants were easily and quickly removed.
As for the "some kind of gothic signature" carved into Vitale's back, it has subsequently been described as a "double-crossed "T" or a "Cross of Lorraine."
From Boyd Rice's study of the esoteric meaning of the Cross of Lorraine, in The Vessel of God:
Interestingly, the Cross of Lorraine bears an uncanny resemblance to the sigil of Baphomet employed by British Magus Aleister Crowley, and the meaning of the two symbols would appear to be virtually synonymous. Baphomet is, after all, the penultimate hermetic symbol, whether depicted by Crowley in the form of a cross, or by Eliphas Levi as a goat-headed hermaphrodite. And the sigil used by Crowley was also employed by ancient alchemists as a device whose meaning was literally "very poisonous." In fact, the symbol was commonly affixed to containers of toxic substances in Europe as recently as the mid-twentieth century. To the alchemists, of course, the symbol and its very meaning had far more esoteric connotations. To them, poison represented an agent of transformation, a vehicle for the reconciliation of opposites. And there is an alchemical myth about a poison which for most men is extremely deadly, while for the elect it confers mastership and absolute power. Echoes of this idea recur as a motif in various aspects of the Grail lore. It would seem that the alchemists accorded this symbol very much the same meaning attributed it by Crowley, which in turn echoes what the Cross of Lorraine embodied for Rene d'Anjou. It is little known, but the Cross of Lorraine was also the official emblem of the Knights Templar.
Though they are more frequently associated with the symbol of the red equilateral cross, their true symbol first and foremost was the Cross of Lorraine, and many Templars awaiting death at the stake pursuant to the Friday the 13th persecutions drew the emblem on the walls of their cells. There is still a degree in certain rites of Freemasonry called the Knights Templar, whose symbol is the Cross of Lorraine....
Meanwhile, Susan Polk has expressed concern that the seizure of two computers from the Horowitz residence could compromise her defense, as they held files containing her statements and a history of the case. Polk asks, "Does the prosecution have the right to see, in advance, the entire plan, essentially, of the defense?"
Mysterious animal deaths and mutilations proliferate, though the incidents are usually considered only locally and in singularity, rather than as pointillist details on a broader canvas. Whenever such stories make the news, it's always time for the jokes about aliens and Satanists, as though the incidents were only silly rumour, and the livestock were just playing dead.
The Colorado town of Calhan is baffled by two mass deaths taking the lives of 22 horses, nearly five years to the day after 24 cattle were found dead in Roswell, New Mexico following a visit by Dick Cheney. "Foul play is not suspected," though in the first group of deaths, "the animals were riddled with puncture wounds that authorities initially thought were bullet holes but were later determined to be from an unknown source."
In Dartmoor, England, it's sheep:
Occult fear as sheep slaughtered
A DARTMOOR farmer who found six of his sheep with their necks broken and their eyeballs removed believes occultists could be responsible.
Four of the dead animals had been laid out in a square, while the other two were discovered near stones apparently arranged to make a pagan symbol.
Last January saw a similar incident, just a mile away:
Dead sheep found in "occult star"
Police in Devon are investigating after seven sheep were found dead arranged in an unusual pattern on Dartmoor.
The sheep were found on Sampford Spiney on Dartmoor with their necks broken and their bodies in a pattern sometimes associated with the occult.
The pattern was similar to the shape of a star, or heptagram, a mystical symbol commonly used in occult ceremonies.
Initial thoughts here, too, were of a lightning strike, until the star pattern was recognized. "It's scared some people and worried them, me included, being this close to home," said farmer Chris Cole.
Last August, the carcasses of 15 headless and bloodless kangaroos were discovered in the suburbs of Melbourne. (A good study of this case by Linda Moulton Howe can be read here.) And so on.
Back in Calhan:
...many were around when a spate of unsolved cattle mutilations occurred in the 1970s and again in the early 1990s, and they’re willing to entertain the notion — maybe with a little tongue in cheek — that cults, creeps and 'black helicopter' people might be to blame. "There’s strange stuff going on," Terry Ashcraft said Monday while doing some business at the Pikes Peak Co-op in Calhan.
And then there's this remarkable story in Bellaciao, developing the Michael Ledeen ties to the Niger forgery discussed here a year ago last August and again last July, which traces the caper back as early as January 2001:
At night, between the first and second of the January 2001, a mysterious thief came to the embassy of Niger in Rome and into the residence of the counselor in charge. It turned out that some letterhead and seals (see photocopy) were missing. A second dossier on Niger-Iraq trade soon came into [SISMI asset Rocco] Martino’s hands, one that included references to uranium trafficking. Martino claims he got it from embassy personnel and that he thought it was authentic.
January 2001. That is, nine months before 9/11, it would seem the Niger forgery was already in motion.
It's always reasonable to suggest we ought to come down to Earth. But I think when we do, it'll be an awfully hard landing. And we may not even recognize the place.
There’s more to the picture than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my....
