Vyzygoth tells of the impact on students in 1970.
Skip to 15:30
Devo co-founder Gerald V. Casale was there at Kent State as a protester.
Quoted from The Vermont Review:
"VR: Going back to your early days. You were present at the Kent State shootings in 1970. How did that day affect you?
JC: Whatever I would say would probably not at all touch upon the
significance or gravity of the situation at this point of time -- it
would probably sound trite or glib. All I can tell you is that it
completely and utterly changed my life. I was a white hippie boy and
then I saw exit wounds from M1 rifles out of the backs of two people I
knew. Two of the four people who were killed, Jeffrey Miller and Allison
Krause, were my friends. We were all running our asses off from these
motherfuckers. It was total, utter bullshit. Live ammunition and
gasmasks - none of us knew, none of us could have imagined... They shot
into a crowd that was running away from them! I stopped being a hippie
and I started to develop the idea of devolution. I got real, real pissed
VR: Does Neil young's "Ohio" strike close to your heart?
JC: Of course. It was strange that the first person that we met,
as Devo emerged, was Neil Young. He asked us to be in his movie, The
Human Highway. It was so strange - San Francisco in 1977. Talk about
life being karmic, small and cyclical - it's absolutely true. In fact I
just got a call from a person organizing a 30th Anniversary
commemoration. Noam Chomsky will be there and I may go talk there if I
can get away. I still remember it so crystal clear, like a dream you
will never forget . . . or a nightmare. I still remember every moment.
It kind of went in slow motion like a car accident.
VR: You said that the Kent State shooting sort of served as a catalyst for your theory of Devolution, which spawned Devo--
JC: Absolutely. Until then I was a hippie. I thought that the
world is essentially good. If people were evil, there was justice... and
that the law mattered. All of those silly naïve things. I saw the
depths of the horrors and lies and the evil. The paper that evening, the
Akron Beacon Journal, said that students were running around
armed and that officers had been hurt. So deputy sheriffs went out and
deputized citizens. They drove around with shotguns and there was
martial law for ten days. 7 PM curfew. It was open season on the
students. We lived in fear. Helicopters surrounding the city with hourly
rotating runs out to the West Side and back downtown. All first
amendment rights are suspended at the instant the governor gives the
order. All of the class-action suits by the parents of the slain
students were all dismissed out of court, because once the governor
announced martial law, they had no right to assemble."
John L. Eastman is the son of the famed entertainment lawyer Lee Eastman.
During the famous breakup of the Beatles, both Lee and John represented Paul McCartney. Paul had married into the family a year earlier, wedding John's sister Linda.
Pete Townshend of the Who said:
"When I first got to New York I thought 'Oh, there are so many people!' But really, back then, there were a few people who had influence... in 1967, I felt Like I'd been slipped from one place to another. From London village to the New York village. And one of a handful of people again, with Linda very much one of them."
Although Lee Eastman was the preeminent entertainment lawyer in the U.S., John had yet to prove himself, having graduated only a few years earlier (New York Law School, 1964).
"I had to put my entire reputation - which was zero - on the line,"
Eastman told students at a New York University law school roundtable
event in 2004. "But I outworked and out-thought the other side." -Evening Standard,August 10, 2006
Lee Eastman was the head of a large music publishing empire. "Head of a syndicate" was a phrase used to describe him at the time. He was equally large in the art world, both representing artists and collecting art.
“He was one of the most avid and active art collectors in America, and from the 1960s onwards, his collection was known and admired by everyone connected to the art scene.”
-Christie's Auction House, via the New York Times, November 27, 2007.
John Eastman worked with his father over the years and has continued practicing law through their firm, Eastman & Eastman. John's own son Lee, now heads the day-to-day operations of MPL Communicatons, Paul McCartney's profitable music and publishing empire.
John Eastman is also Director of the National Music Publishers’ Association, Apple Records, and Director of ASCAP .
Along with his wife Jodie (Josephine), John Eastman is also on the Leadership Council of the New York Stem Cell Foundation. John is also on the Board of Directors.
Chief Executive Officer of the NYSCF Board of Directors is Susan L. Solomon. Not only was she founding Chief Executive Officer of Sothebys.com and President of Sony Worldwide Networks, but her father was co-founder of Vanguard Records.
Her Uncle Maynard was the other co-founder of Vanguard. He wrote a book in1974 entitled "Marxism and Art", a dry compilation of writngs by Marx, Engels, a surrealist or two (Andre Breton- was French communist, but parted ways later on) and other communist art critic types.
Uncle Maynard currently edits American Imago, established in 1939 by Sigmund Freud (Propaganda author Edward Bernays' Uncle) and still being published.
Maynard signed The Weavers to Vanguard.
Vanguard was known for its pivotal recordings of 1960's Folk and Blues recordings.
One producer to pass through Vanguard in the mid fifties was John H. Hammond. Hammond's mother was the grand-daughter of Cornelius Vanderbilt. Hammond grew up in a six-story mansion.
Hammond was a major producer and discoverer of musical talent. He discovered Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Benny Goodman and Pete Seeger.
Benny Goodman ended up marrying Hammond's sister Alice.
According to wikipedia:
"Due to the various benefits and fund-raisers that Hammond hosted for the popular front, his name was often listed in The Daily Worker,
a communist newspaper. Furthermore, his name often appeared on the
letterheads of left-wing organizations for which he was a donor or
member. However, Hammond was not a communist."
He probably wasn't a communist but he certainly went out of his way to promote them and in the charged 1950's era it would've been considered the same thing.
Pete Seeger, who Hammond eventually signed on to Columbia , was openly a communist and his group The Weavers ran into trouble for the same reason.
Hammond provided funds for transportation, for a Soviet film company proposal, after being approached by communist organizer Louise Thompson.
Hammond's son (also John) became a blues artist on Vanguard. Junior helped Jimi Hendrix put a band together in 1966 and then got him gigs at the Cafe Au Go Go.
"The KPO consisted of members of the right opposition, purged by Stalin
in 1929 because of their support for Nikolai Bukharin, as opposed to the
left opposition of Leon Trotsky. Among those purged was Jay Lovestone,
the erstwhile head of the American Communist Party. It was Lovestone
who formed an American section of the International Relief Association
in 1933. His intention was mainly to aid his Right Opposition comrades,
but in classic Comintern style, he ensured the board consisted mainly of
progressive luminaries who could attract much wider support. Einstein
was one of these (Chester, p.8)."
Founded by liberals close to Eleanor Roosevelt was the Emergency Rescue Committee.
"With US entry into World War Two, the American Government asserted its
control over the refugee issue. the IRA and ERC merged to form the
International Relief and Rescue Committee, financed largely by the
National War Fund (Chester, 18-19)...With the onset of the Cold War, its refugee work became of interest to
the newly emerging CIA as a potential source of intelligence and
Thank you, Spinwatch
To put it clearly, an openly communist organization merges with an organization founded by people associated with Eleanor Roosevelt, whose husband was a corporate socialist, par excellence , and was herself suspected of being a communist. It then emerges as a front for CIA activity.
"While the FBI never launched a formal investigation of Eleanor
Roosevelt, FBI references to her comprise one of the largest single
files in J. Edgar Hoover's collection."
-via PBS/American Experience
Eleanor Roosevelt was also associated with Theosophist esoteric guru Nicholas Roerich, for example, giving a speech at the Roerich museum in New York.
Eleanor Roosevelt and Vanderbilt scion John Hammond typify the very wealthy guiding supposedly grassroots people into endeavors that suit the aims of those with the power.
Antony Sutton's "The Bolshevik Revolution and Wall Street" and "Wall Street and FDR" exposes in detail how a few very wealthy and powerful people, out of 120 Wall St, made the Bolshevik revolution happen and implemented socialist policy. From 1921 on, FDR was part of this ensemble of manipulators.
Current IRC Overseers include William vanden Heuvel, father of Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel:
Producer John H. Hammond wrote articles for the Nation early on in his career.
TOWER of BABEL
William vanden Heuvel is a Council on Foreign Relations member, as is John Eastman, along with another, more infamous, IRC member James D. Wolfensohn, former World Bank President.
W. vanden Heuvel is also past president of Collegium International , which appears to be an elite group of Globalists pushing for one-world government.
The Collegium International features intense imagery of the Tower of Babel by the artist Du Zhenjun.
The artist is interviewed by Collegium member Sasha Goldman:
One member, Stephane Hessel, was listed on a 2011 Foreign Policy magazine top ten thinkers list for his book "Time For Outrage", which was cited as an inspiration for Occupy Wall Street.
The whole communist movement through our society can be seen as one long battle in a series of battles of which the next in line appears to be Transhumanism.
Having passed the stage of distaste for stem-cell research (stem cells are harvested from aborted or miscarried fetal tissue) the push is now for the wide and varied use of this miracle technology.
Transhumansim, at its base, is a fear of death beyond typical considerations. It is anti-spiritual in the same manner as communism, constricting humanity in materialistic chains.
FACING the MUSIC
Music has everything to do with what is going on in the world today, on a physical, mental, cultural and spiritual level.
Science and ancient philosophy are now in agreement about the cohesive and destructive capabilities of sound upon matter.
Culturally, rock (R&B) has been put forth by the arbiters of taste as the music that now permeates our waking life. It is nothing less than the drumbeat for the enslaved rowers of the ship.
Pete Seeger consciously and intentionally used old American folk ballads as a way to drop the communist sentiment into unsuspecting minds, without the rebellious attitude of rock.
"The Popular Front Left saw such homespun music
of poor rural Southerners—eventually labeled American “folk” music—as
perfect for molding into a new Marxist cultural vernacular. “When the
Communist Left and its intellectuals . . . tried to sink roots in
American tradition, radicals turned a new ear to traditional folk
tunes,” notes Dunaway. They could cast folk music as the politically
pure art of America’s noble rural proletariat—plus, because this
non-commercial music wasn’t copyrighted, they could adapt it freely."
-America’s Most Successful Communist, by Howard Husock, City Journal, 2005.
The Beatles essentially transformed the culture and society of America and the world.
"Helter Skelter means confusion. Literally. It doesn't mean any war with
anyone. It doesn't mean that those people are going to kill other
people. It only means what it means. Helter Skelter is confusion.
Confusion is coming down fast. If you don't see the confusion coming
down fast, you can call it what you wish. It's not my conspiracy. It is
not my music. I hear what it relates. It says, 'Rise!' It says 'Kill!'
Why blame it on me? I didn't write the music. I am not the person who
projected it into your social consciousness."
-Charles Manson, 1970.
MEMBERS of the BOARD
Members of the boards of the various organizations around the world form an interlocking web which provides the mechanism for behind-the -scenes control of the world.
Serving on several boards at a time, moving from one to the next allows agendas to be communicated and bonds strengthened.

FUCKED UP WORLD
In 1960 Michael Harner took ayahausca (most probably the first Westerner to do so) and experienced this: "As I tried
to accept my fate, an even lower portion of my brain began to transmit
more visions and information. I was "told" that this new material was
being presented to me because I was dying and therefore "safe" to
receive these revelations. These were the secrets reserved for the dying
and the dead, I was informed.
I could only very dimly perceive
the givers of these thoughts: giant reptilian creatures reposing
sluggishly at the lowermost depths of the back of my brain, where it met
the top of the spinal column. I could only vaguely see them in what
seemed to be gloomy, dark depths. Then they projected a visual scene in
front of me. First they showed me the planet Earth as it was eons ago,
before there was any life on it. I saw an ocean, barren land, and a
bright blue sky.
Then black specks dropped from the sky by the
hundreds and landed in front of me on the barren landscape. I could see
that the "specks" were actually large, shiny, black creatures with
stubby pterodactyl-like wings and huge whale-like bodies. Their heads
were not visible to me. They flopped down, utterly exhausted from their
trip, resting for eons. They explained to me in a kind of thought
language that they were fleeing from something out in space. They had
come to the planet Earth to escape their enemy. The creatures then
showed me how they had created life on the planet in order to hide
within the multitudinous forms and thus disguise their presence.
me, the magnificence of plant and animal creation and
speciation-hundreds of millions of years of activity-took place on a
scale and with a vividness impossible to describe. I learned that the
dragon-like creatures were thus inside of all forms of life, including
man.() They were the true masters of humanity and the entire planet,
they told me. We humans were but the receptacles and servants of these
creatures. For this reason they could speak to me from within myself." "These
revelations, welling up from the depths of my mind, alternated with
visions of the floating galley, which had almost finished taking my soul
on board. The boat with its blue-jay headed deck crew was gradually
drawing away, pulling my life force along as it headed toward a large
fjord flanked by barren, worn hills.
I knew I had only a moment
more to live. Strangely, I had no fear of the bird-headed people; they
were welcome to have my soul if they could keep it. But I was afraid
that somehow my soul might not remain on the horizontal plane of the
fjord but might, through processes unknown but felt and dreaded, be
acquired or re-acquired by the dragon-like denizens of the depths.
suddenly felt my distinctive humanness, the contrast between my species
and the ancient reptilian ancestors. I began to struggle against
returning to the ancient ones, who were beginning to feel increasingly
alien and possibly evil. "
King James Version (KJV)
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 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. 10 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. 11 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. 12 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. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
When the Devil tempted Christ, did not Christ reject the world? Did this not include the leaders therin?
And in the Hindu Vedas, political leaders are thought to be simply a lower form of demon.
" Disciple: But, Srila Prabhupada, as soon as we define what
demoniac civilization is, then people will be offended. They'll see that
by the Vedic definition, people who gamble, have illicit sex, take
intoxicants, and eat flesh people like themselves are demons. So they'll
Srila Prabhupada: Yes. Because people have themselves become demons, they cannot understand what a demon is.
For instance, a Christian priest went to preach to some mine workers,
and he was explaining, "If you do not worship Lord Jesus Christ, you
will go to hell."
So the mine workers asked, "What is hell?"
But when the priest explained "Hell is wet and dark, with no
sufficient air," and so on the mine workers could not understand how
horrible hell is. Why? Because by working in the mine, they were already
agreeing to be in hell. So they no longer had the discretion to
realize, "Oh, always wet and dark, without enough air that is a very
Similarly, in today's world these demons no longer have the discretion to realize what demonism is. Asuram bhavam asritah: they have already agreed to live in the mood of demonism. What is this asura-bhava, this mood of demonism? Not to accept God. This is asura-bhava.
This is the basic principle of demonism. Ignore the soul and God and
God's laws; gamble, take intoxicants, have illicit sex, and slaughter
God's other creatures and eat their flesh. So in this way, nearly all
people have agreed to deny God. Therefore, they have become demons. "
This is a dangerous age we live in. The years since 911 represent a threshold to the New Age.
The United States kept the Soviet Union propped up financially and industrially for the duration of the Cold War and there is ample evidence for this.
During the whole period of McCarthyism it went on, this support.
At the highest levels of finance and government those in control KNEW that it was a rigged game. They were benefiting so why would they rock the boat when it would mean their own demise?
KGB Putin in Berlin:
Iran's notorious secret police, SAVAK, was set up with the help of the CIA. One might wonder if Western military intelligence had a hand in the formation of the KGB. If the U.S. was supporting the Soviets in every other way, then why not in its secret service as well?
Domination and manipulation of cyberspace is a current concern of propagandists the world over. The U.S. military openly admits its desire to control the political dialog online, through the use of agents posing as truthseekers and the like.
FSB logo with the double headed phoenix, which represents order out of chaos:
Pitting both sides against one another. To the insider it is all role-playing.
Russia Today is at the forefront of this propaganda. Think of the alternative media players who appear regularly on that channel such as Charlie Mcgrath and Mike Adams of Natural News.
Putin's followers around the world do not realize the game they are in, or they are knowing and willing players in the game themselves.
Putin denies the role of the FSB in the Russian Apartment Bombings when asked point-blank and obfuscates like the professional liar that he is.
The hero worship is sickening to see in characters such as this online:
There is a grand scheme to this game that remains unseen until those in power make an important move (such as 911) and by then all their defensive pieces are in position to deflect or misdirect those who are not immediately coming in to line with the rest of the herd.
While the former KGB agent in the video below is talking about one side of the equation, it is useful to see how this works from above, playing one side off of another:
And it's not just about Obama being a communist, but being a tool of the Elite, those who live and move on a strata so far above the mundane that few of us ever encounter it.
Ask yourself what you know about this man and what he has done. Who is he, from what reality did he spring and who does he serve? In this world, the leaders of nations are mere frontmen, supervisors on duty for a limited time for publicly unacknowledged superiors.
In the alternative media there is little to no criticism of Putin, even as many bloggers decry the communist leanings of Obama.
Suits like Putin and Obama and all the rest, serve the same master. Don't be fooled.
"Wink, wink, nod, nod." *******UPDATE*******
The day following this post, the 21st of September 2013, a link on the Rense website appeared for this article: http://tomatobubble.com/putin_anti_communist.html
This site looks all the world like a propaganda front for the FSB, just in its styling alone.
As for the claims made in the article, much can be made out of one party opposing another publicly and yet being very cozy behind the scenes.
All those years the West opposed the Soviet Union we were at the same time propping it up economically.
Antony Sutton speaks to this:
And the support was from the very inception of the Bolshevik Revolution, supported by the top financiers in the United States:
The Rulers of Earth are setting up a global showdown with the U.S. , Europe and Israel on one side and Russia, China and Middle-Eastern nations on the other. This is the broad template for WW3 in as much as it can be forseen at this time. Other players, such as South America and India, may present unforseen game changes.
"The Third World War must be fomented by
taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur"
of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the
leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such
a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political
Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.
Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue
will be constrained to fight to the point of complete
physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We
shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall
provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its
horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of
absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody
turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend
themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries,
will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the
multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic
spirits will from that moment be without compass or
direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where
to render its adoration, will receive the true light through
the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer,
brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation
will result from the general reactionary movement which will
follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both
conquered and exterminated at the same time." -Albert Pike.
Economics. For so long politicians and pundits touted the U.S. economic success as a reason, an excuse, for all sorts of misadventures. Slowly but surely they transferred the majority of manufacturing to China -but in the meantime before the 2008 crash it was all
"Ra Ra Ra, aren't we so great, nothing can go wrong."
Russia at this time can afford to gloat and be prideful what they have, in oil and mineral wealth, but it seems to me that the same economic masters who control the West control them as well. Why would they ever give that up? And who would stop them? They've not been stopped yet...

Religion. Propaganda, in a word. Set up a straw man, like Pussy Riot,
and then just watch it play out. If it is western intel behind such
purile staged events, no surprise, but it is just as possible for it to
be FSB gaming we see. Western media soaks it up like gravy. Lots of fun,
while the bloodsport on the world stage continues.
