Cycles, Coincidences, and Patterns
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Back in September of this year, I noticed something peculiar about the timing of certain past events. It's probably just a coincidence. Even so, it's interesting, so I decided to write an article.
MOVE: In May of 1985, the Philadelphia police conducted a full-scale military-style assault on the MOVE house, a civilian residence on Osage Avenue in West Philadelphia. They fired more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition into the house. When that didn't force the occupants to surrender, a police helicopter dropped a fire bomb on the roof. Mayor Wilson Goode prohibited his fire department from fighting the fire until it was certain that the house would be completely destroyed. The fire also destroyed the entire neighborhood, a total of 60 houses.
While the house was burning, the Philadelphia police, who controlled the alley behind the house, shot and killed some MOVE members who tried to escape from the rear of the house. It was even suspected that the police captured two children who were known to have escaped and threw them, alive, back into the fire. It's unproven, but the two children were observed by Ramona Africa to have escaped. They were later found dead, in the garage. The police were the only other people who had access to the alley. It's unlikely that the children would have run back into the garage themselves.
So, what was Wilson Goode's objective? Why did he start the fire and then allow it to destroy the entire house, including the occupants and contents? The occupants of the house were unarmed and were being murdered by the police. I believe that Mayor Goode wanted to eliminate witnesses and destroy evidence. Logically, the fire didn't have any other purpose.
The Branch Davidians, 8 Years Later: In February of 1993, the BATF conducted a military-style attack on the civilian home of the Branch Davidians, the Mt. Carmel Center, near Waco, Texas. After the attack failed, the FBI established a siege that lasted for 51 days. During the siege, the FBI cut off all utilities and sanitation. Phone lines to everyone but the FBI were severed. Radio communications were jammed. Government loudspeakers blared nonstop with sounds such as chants by Tibetan monks, jet planes, Nancy Sinatra singing These Boots Are Made for Walking, and the cries of rabbits being slaughtered. Tanks fired percussion grenades. Stadium lights kept the house illuminated 24 hours a day. Black helicopters flew overhead. The house was fired upon without warning and a few people who tried to leave the house were shot. By the 40th day of the siege, the children and babies were out of milk. Relief efforts to deliver baby food were turned back by the FBI.
Finally, after a 51 day assault, the occupants were cyanided, many to the point of incapacitation, others fatally. Then, the FBI used army tanks to punch holes in the walls, providing for adequate ventilation, filled the building with combustible CS gas, and set it on fire with pyrotechnic tear-gas grenades. Fire fighters were prohibited from fighting the fire until the building, and everything in it, had been destroyed. Within two days, bulldozers were brought in and leveled the rubble.
Why did the FBI burn the Mt. Carmel Center, including occupants and contents, and then quickly bulldoze the remains? I believe that it was done to eliminate witnesses and to destroy evidence. The Mt. Carmel Center was sanitized, much like the MOVE house, on Osage Avenue in West Philadelphia had been sanitized, eight years earlier, right down to the incineration of the children.
The World Trade Center, 8 Years Later: In September of 2001, some agency within the U.S. government crashed two remotely controlled airplanes into the World Trade Center Towers. The official story is that the towers subsequently collapsed because of the impact of the airplanes and the ensuing fires. That theory fails to explain some observed facts.
|The tops of the towers fell straight down, without
sliding sideways, tipping, or rotating. That type of collapse would
mean that all of the steel columns that extended from the basement to the
roof had failed simultaneously. The top parts of the buildings fell
straight down at just about free-fall speed. That would mean that
the lower structure, with all of that steel and concrete, didn't offer
any resistance. Sections of heavy steel beams were blown outward
horizontally more than 500 feet. Some of the steel melted, which
would have required temperatures far hotter than the fires in the buildings.
Many witnesses reported additional explosions in the buildings long after
the jet-fuel had been consumed. Nanothermite residue was later discovered,
dispersed throughout the dust that settled after the event. I'm convinced
that the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers was a planned demolition.
After the dust had settled, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) didn't try to reassemble the wreckage of the airplanes and conduct a forensic analysis, as is its job. Rather, the debris was removed as quickly as could be arranged and with as little investigation as could possibly be justified. Why would the towers be intentionally demolished? Why would the debris be "bulldozed" without forensic analysis? The reason is that the airplanes that hit the World Trade Center Towers were not the same airplanes that were hijacked. The NTSB might have been able to discover that fact, had it been allowed to properly investigate the debris. Again, the agenda was to destroy the evidence. The unknown agency, somewhere within the U.S. government, that perpetrated the attacks accomplished exactly that.
Maybe I Missed Something, 8 Years Later: Why would such events follow an eight-year cycle? Maybe it was just a coincidence. If it wasn't, then there should have been a government atrocity and subsequent destruction of evidence sometime during 2009. If such a thing happened, then I didn't notice it. That's easy to explain. After the events of September 11, 2001, I became so disgusted with the news media that I stopped paying any attention to them. Another possibility is that the government is getting better at hiding such events. Anyway, if something that fits my suggested eight-year cycle happened during 2009, then maybe one of you can let me know about it.
Waziristan Haveli, 2 Years Later: The only thing that I've noticed, particularly, in the news recently is Osama bin Laden. I noticed that only because I heard somebody mention that he'd been killed during some kind of a U.S. raid. I spent a few minutes, not many, just a few, looking for it on the internet. I was gratified to see all of the conspiracy theories. Maybe I'm not the only person who's learning to be skeptical. I watched the first few minutes of a documentary about the raid but I turned it off after I became disgusted with the ballyhoo police state propaganda. So, I don't know much about the raid. It was more than a year after the fact before I even became aware of it. That just shows how little attention I pay to the government news media nowadays.
My impression is that the attack on Waziristan Haveli, the civilian home alleged to have been Osama bin Laden's hideout, is distinguished from the other attacks mentioned in this article mainly by missing the eight-year cycle and by having been conducted on foreign soil. Being on foreign soil, it somewhat resembled an unprovoked act of war, which isn't surprising, considering the imperialist aggression of the U.S. government. I heard somewhere that the bunglers even crashed one of their own helicopters without even having to face enemy gunfire. Who knows? With some advanced warning, the Pakistanis might even have won.
Did they get Osama bin Laden, or did they get someone else who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? If it was the wrong man, then I'd expect them to proclaim success and get rid of the body as quickly as possible, which is exactly what they did. My understanding is that Waziristan Haveli wasn't demolished, destroying the remaining evidence, until almost a year after the event but, of course, it was on foreign soil and therefore less accessible to U.S. bulldozers. The people in the vicinity should consider themselves lucky that the U.S. military didn't just carpet bomb the place to destroy the evidence, or maybe use a nuke. Anyway, the body, allegedly Osama bin Laden, was dumped before anybody else could examine it, so the main evidence is gone. Nobody will ever be able to verify if the victim was actually Osama bin Laden, or someone else. As in the other cases noted in this article, the evidence has been destroyed. Even if it isn't an eight-year cycle, it's a pattern.
|Letters to the Editor
I have been reading your conversations with critics on Pharos. I had assumed that you were atheist or at least not Christian but you had some profound thoughts for both believers and non-believers. I was impressed by your mentioning Matthew 6:5-6 about going into a room and closing the door to pray. I did just that. I asked God to fill me with his truth and to purge me of all that is false. What was revealed to me over the next week or so led me to ask the local pastor to baptize me. I find the results and peace of mind to be phenomenal. Be at peace, always,
Thank you for your message and for visiting Pharos.
I'm not an atheist but my view of organized religion is that it doesn't have much to do with a belief in God. Organized religion seems to be mostly about obeying the clergy, with God as the clergy's badge of office and "big stick". The consequences of disobedience appear to be, variously, secular criminal prosecution and punishment, defamation and slander, shunning, excommunication, exile, torture, death, or whatever other punishments the particular clergy have the power to impose. As an alternative, I suggest that God intends for us to think for ourselves, not to be subordinate lackeys of the clergy. It's the clergy, not God, who try to coerce us into a state of mindless obedience.

Fiction by Sam Aurelius Milam III
I don't know who grabbed the leash or what they learned but I've been real quiet lately. I haven't left the house for over a year. I'm not ready to go outside. Most things still work. Telephone failed. Don't know why. Maybe one of the leaks quit leaking. Bill didn't get paid. Not ready to log into anything to check on it. As long as the electricity and the water keep working, and the food is delivered, I can stay here indefinitely. That all still works so I assume that the funds flows from the black projects are still working. At least some of them.
Since they haven't come after me it might be safe to assume that they can't find me. Hell. Maybe they don't even know about me. I don't know what was left of Cyber Dog. He was scattered into millions of bits and pieces. Maybe they never got any useful information from the fragments of code. Piecing it all back together again, assuming they can find all of it, could take decades. Maybe they don't know about me. Maybe I'm being too paranoid. No, remember that X-Files episode, Suzanne Modeski, she said no matter how paranoid you are you're not paranoid enough. Why would they leave me alone if they know about me? Are they just happy that I'm bottled up here, out of action? No. Not like them. If they knew about me there'd be a place for me in one of those FEMA relocation camps and you can bet your boots I wouldn't meet any hurricane survivors. So, I suppose they don't know about me. If they ever do find me, you can be absolutely sure of one thing. Not one slightest hint of it will ever be released to the public.
Well, I could stay here forever but I guess I'd rather not.
Shut Up and Eat
Sam Aurelius Milam III
Why do so many women so often put the food on the smallest possible plate? She'll use a saucer instead of a small plate or a small plate instead of a normal sized plate. It's just as easy to put any size plate in the dish washer so she doesn't accomplish anything by crowding the food into the smallest possible plate. She only makes it more likely that one of us big, clumsy galoots will fumble something and drop it onto the table instead of dropping it into the plate. I hate to have my bread hang over the edge of the plate while I'm trying to spread the margarine on it.
I've never actually confronted a woman on this issue. My strategy has been to take whatever food she offered me, within certain limits, and to keep my mouth shut except for eating.

A man said to his wife one day, "How can you be so stupid and so beautiful both at the same time?"
The wife replied, "God made me beautiful so that you would be attracted to me and He made me stupid so that I would be attracted to you."
My first wife, Elaine, once commented to me that she had married me because I have a strong back and that I had married her because I have a weak mind. It seems to me that she insulted both of us.
