I have this feeling that Italy might be under some sort of multiple attack. This is just a hunch I am having. The attacks are actually knowing a momentum now, that almost makes me think of Egypt or of other bullshit orange revolutions. Of course, it is early to tell, and the attacks are not yet visible in their wider scheme to the larger audience. But possibly it is not too early to discuss them.
[ Note for the less experienced reader about the facebook "revolutions": We are often told by the lying media that the new revolutions start "from the internet", "from facebook and twitter". Of course this is to give the illusion of spontaneity, of the existence of some grassroot movement with a common goal, all the while enjoying the high degree of manipulation that internet allows. Nothing in fact is simpler, having the means, to fake support to something that still does not exist in reality, using a convenient network of controlled machines and a few peons posting texts over the internet, pushing it and pushing it until it starts to exist in reality long enough to cause turmoil and destabilization on the target country. Everything happens without the hindrance of actual charismatic leaders that actually want to lead the revolution and unify the people.
Also let it be noted that this post is not meant as a defense for a Berlusconi "victim" of a staged coup. I don't give a rat's ass about Berlusconi, I care about the fakery and the manipulation. Mubarak was a dick too, but this does not mean that the transition to the nothing that followed him was authentic. ]
1) Hacker attack. As risible this shit is, it is still part of creating this illusion of "grassroot" movement that is in fact so highly manipulable. So in late june the italian media tell us that the "Anonymous" group hacked important websites of political parties and institutions.
2) Financial attack. Italy is getting close to be another european country to know economic meltdown, and speculations are rampant. The oligarchy in charge is rushing to bleed the citizens dry of their money, but it seems to be very late in the game. All the while, the infighting among the political elite knows no repose.
3) Leaks attack. The political oligarchy in its entirety is being fingered as a mass of parasites "from facebook": "leaking" lists of privileges and robberies of the italian parliamentarians are taking the net by storm. This trivial operation can achieve quite rapidly a high level of indignation among the masses, then the rush to ask generically "for a change".
Unfortunately this demand for change is actually the easiest thing to control and manipulate, based as it is only on disappointment and not on an idea of how thing could work in reality. But you all know this.
This is the blog (originally a facebook account) that "leaks" the information about italian parliamentarians. Just yesterday the author decided to reveal itself as part of the "Anonymous" network, using the Vendetta imagery and the childish language like "we are everywhere" and similar bullshit. I have no doubt now he is part of a conspiracy guided from abroad, which makes me even more sure that this incident will not be without consequences.
Anyway, behaving as they do as an unpunished oligarchy, I am sure the robberies and wrongdoings of the italian political elites are significant. After all they are either tied with the mafia, or with masonic groups. How honest can they be?
However, something bothered when I read this (my translation), in a post that denounces the shameless wages of the barbers at the italian parliament (Montecitorio):
9 barbers work in the barber shop inside Montecitorio, earning 11,000 euros a month (...)
Incidental numbers, right? But then, I started searching the actual news items that can support this piece of information, and found this article: http://archiviostorico.corriere.it/2004 ... 4001.shtml
The article explicitly refers to 6 spots for barbers, not 9. As to the 11,000, the number is quite hard to believe, even admitting for the money wasted for protegees. In any case the 9 - 11 numbers are there and look as another of those tiny little messages we are accustomed to see in the events characterized by fakery.
(Yesterday the news said there was an earthquake that affected the north-center of italy and was felt in the whole Lombardy. Well I was in Lombardy and I felt nothing. Just wanted to note this probably accidental fact.)
Right now, I think all of the above might just be in preparation of a possible real staged turmoil and destabilization that might come around after the holidays, in septmeber or later this year, in order to close the Berlusconi's era with a bit of fireworks, and replace it with who knows what. Maybe with the help of a little fakery terror act, provided they get the territorial support of the mafia. Who knows. I don't want to speculate but I guess it was important to establish here on cluesforum our vigilance on the matter at an early stage.
