Underground Listening Post: Beast, Inc.

Then the LORD said unto me,

Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.

For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.

And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.

Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.

For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.

And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.

-- Jeremiah 1: 14-19

Prior posts delved into Charles Manson's "December 25, 2000" artwork (image from CharlieManson.com).

Those posts (see October 2005 archives, beginning with "Ragna Rok and Man Son Role") mostly explored occult, ideo-political, eschatological, and "mythological" elements of Manson's art piece -- but another dimension surfaced today.

About 18 months ago, an un-named source strongly suggested a future rift between the U.S. and Canada. I don't follow politics closely, and was only tangentially aware that Canada has a Prime-Minister-in-waiting, one Stephen Harper, whose first news conference included what the Associated Press called his intention to . . . "stand by a campaign pledge to increase Canada's military presence in the Arctic and put three military icebreakers in the frigid waters of the Northwest Passage."

Harper also commented:

The single most important duty of the federal government is to protect and defend our national sovereignty . . . There are new and disturbing reports of American nuclear submarines passing though Canadian waters without obtaining the permission of, or even notifying, the Canadian government.

Those "waters" so pointedly defined as "Canadian" by the incoming P.M. are, specifically, the Arctic Ocean, and very specifically indeed, the Northwest Passage, still crucial in shipping, geostrategics, and other, less obvious, matters.

Harper also said:

The United States defends its sovereignty; the Canadian government will defend our sovereignty. It is the Canadian people that we get our mandate from, not the ambassador of the United States.

In the Old Days, this was Standard Operating Procedure: one took office/power, and immediately flexed and posed for the homefolk, so they'd feel all snuggy at night abed. Such macho demonstrations also put neighbors on notice that agression against The Homeland is discouraged, etc. etc.

Granted, this is a Conservative Party P.M. -- but still . . . saber-rattling by the Canadians?!!


Yikes. Talk about new world order.

Canada Reasserts Arctic Sovereignty

By BETH DUFF-BROWN, Associated Press Writer

Thu Jan 26, 5:16 PM ET

TORONTO - Canada's next prime minister used his first news conference Thursday to tell the United States to mind its own business when it comes to territorial rights in the Arctic North.

Testing the notion that he would kowtow to the Bush administration, Stephen Harper, whose Conservative Party won general elections on Monday, said he would stand by a campaign pledge to increase Canada's military presence in the Arctic and put three military icebreakers in the frigid waters of the Northwest Passage.

U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins had criticized the plan Wednesday, describing the Arctic passage as "neutral waters."

"There's no reason to create a problem that doesn't exist," Wilkins said during a panel discussion at the University of Western Ontario, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. "We don't recognize Canada's claims to those waters. Most other countries do not recognize their claim."

No reporter brought up the U.S. ambassador's views Thursday, but Harper said he wanted to comment on them.

"The United States defends its sovereignty; the Canadian government will defend our sovereignty," Harper said. "It is the Canadian people that we get our mandate from, not the ambassador of the United States."

Harper's surprising salvo was likely intended as a message to those in the Bush administration who might be cheering the election of a Conservative government and view Harper as a pushover when it comes to prickly U.S.-Canadian relations.

Arctic sovereignty has been a sensitive subject for decades, with
U.S. Navy submarines and ships entering northern waters without asking permission. Ottawa has generally turned a blind eye to the United States' sending ships through the area.

Canadian media reported last month that a U.S. nuclear submarine traveled secretly through Canadian Arctic waters in November on its way to the North Pole.

The Northwest Passage runs from the Atlantic through the Arctic to the Pacific.

Global warming is melting the passage — which is only navigable during a slim window in the summer — and exposing unexplored fishing stocks and an attractive shipping route. Commercial ships can shave off some 2,480 miles from the trip from Europe to Asia compared with the current routes through the Panama Canal.

Harper said during a campaign speech in December he would dramatically increase Canada's military presence in the Arctic North. He intends to construct and deploy three new armed icebreaking ships and construct a $1.7 billion deep-water port and an underwater network of "listening posts."

"The single most important duty of the federal government is to protect and defend our national sovereignty," Harper said in the December speech. "There are new and disturbing reports of American nuclear submarines passing though Canadian waters without obtaining the permission of, or even notifying, the Canadian government."

Harper has not said whether he would order military action if the ships or port detected an unauthorized submarine in Arctic waters.
Harper, meanwhile, said he had a friendly conversation with
President Bush on Wednesday but had not fixed a date for their first meeting. He said he had also received calls from other major allies, including Mexican President Vicente Fox, British Prime Minister
Tony Blair and Australian Prime Minister John Howard.

The "underwater network of listening posts" got my attention, and I think Harper reflects nervousness -- partly conscious, partly unconscious -- in the Candadian national psyche about potential ingestion by that enormous cockatrice in Manson's drawing . . . an occult/masonic monster that springs from the Carolinas, an emblem perhaps of the world-devouring New American Empire.

As detailed in "Ragna Rok and Man Son Role," posted herein and at Georgie's Raydiator Service, the "theatre of conflict" in Manson's artwork is the Arctic Ocean -- from a practical standpoint, one of the most unlikeliest places on Earth for war . . . but from an occult or "spiritual" standpoint, a primary, and primal, battleground.

The element of water recurs in these particular strands of occult operations. Remember: it's the planetary "maternal fluid," from which life emerged. Thus it retains a type of procreative/primal power, applicable to various purposes.

Highway 101 and the Southern California coast was Manson's base-of-operations, of course, after the Family migrated from the Haight-Ashbury in S.F.

Los Angeles, as now, was a hotbed of occult experimentation and activity in the Sixties and Seventies. (Tom Reamy's period short-story, "San Diego Lightfoot Sue," sums the vibe with chilling perfection. I wrote a screen adaptation for it.)

Amongst other seaside locales, Malibu and Topanga Canyon were notorious for neopagan rituals involving drugs, violence, sex-magick, and blood-magick.

In 1967, at an infamous house in (very) Lower Topanga called the "Spiral Staircase," the Manson Family was introduced to house-resident Diane ("Snake") Lake. The house overhung a nearby creek.

(Gee . . . maybe Canada's submerged "listening posts" will be tuning into "Chuckles' Greatest Hits, Volume Nine"?)


Reports of Unidentifed Submerged Objects flying into, or out of, Southern Califonia waters are common, and not completely dismissable as kookery.

The Santa Catalina Channel -- about as deep as Everest is high -- is notorious for sightings, including major hits on February 7, 1989, and June 14, 1992 -- with USOs emerging silently from the ocean, sometimes hovering, then flying away.

Perhaps the best-known USO sighting was on October 4, 1967, at Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia, Canada -- investigated by no less than the RCMP.

Accounts of appearing and disappearing deities in most mythologies and iconographies indicate subterranean or sub-oceanic origin/destination, rather than the celestial travel commonly perceived and reported.

I guess SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER! is sexier than mucking about in our own backyards. . . .

Modern science knows more -- much more -- about the black of the moon's back than about the Deep right here on Stone Trey.

OK. Let's look again at Charles' picture, this time in context of

Daniel 12 and Revelation 12 -- overlaid texts prophesying "Endtimes" players and actions.

Daniel 12:1 states:

At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.

Revelation 12 likewise predicts:

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Manson's "cockatrice" resembles Revelation's "great red dragon" with multiple heads and horns -- and Charles, of course, knows (and quotes!) Scripture quite accurately.

And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Celestial "dragons" exist both in deep space (the constellation Draco/Draconis) and in the sublunary, or "astral," region. When the serpent is cast out in Revelation, "heaven" probably refers to the latter (in which Satan is called "prince of the air.")

Notice that Revelation warns the inhabitants of both earth and sea that the devil literally will manifest within them. Note also the delay in Satan's self-consciousness of his "change in circumstances."

The demotion appears unrecognized, then ill-received!

My sympathy! :O)

One moment gliding regally, Emperor of Midair.

The next, just a fat worm crawling across the dirt, writhing beneath the brine.

One moment phastasmagoric, intangible, an untraceable flit . . . invulnerable!

The next, chunked down into water and stone, exposed, freezeframed, aslog in the Oatmeal of spacetime.



Not much different, really, from the Revolutionary War. Gorilla tactics. Local knowledge.

Horses for courses. So forth.

Arranging the scrap on native territory, hell, that's half the battle.
