Creepy Clown Considerations

(excerpt: Twilight Language)

The Daily Mail mapped out what clown reports they had gathered, as of October 1, 2016. There are many more than these.
Thirty-five years ago, the phrase “Phantom Clowns” was added to my twilight language lexicon, when the actual “Phantom Clowns” appeared in America. I wrote about them, in depth, in Mysterious America.

For those who have been wondering about my recent silence, in the midst of these days of heightened clown sightings, a word or two.

I have been traveling for weeks now, giving talks at conferences and festivals. While my presentations have centered on cryptozoological subjects, people have often wanted to discuss the epidemic of clown appearances. I am keenly aware this is a topic of interest to many folks.

My journeys have taken me from Point Pleasant, West Virginia, to Niagara Falls, New York, and then on to Minerva, Ohio, as well as from the Berkshires of Massachusetts to upcoming events in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I have watched with much interest the explosion in the “Phantom Clowns” incidents, and the confusion by the media with the “Stalking Clowns” accounts.

I need to be in one location (home in Portland, Maine) to analyze, track, and compile what has been happening. Please be patient with me. I will get to this important work.

I have kept in reserve some contributions that I will use from a few of you, including links being sent my way.

The input has been overwhelming. For example, reportedly, there are 30 sites in Ohio alone where “clowns” of one kind or another have been “sighted.”

Vocativ’s image of a “Phantom Clown” may be a bit too cheery, compared to the luring clowns reported.

There are also accounts of a deadly school shooting, a clown-related death, and perhaps harm done to someone in a clown costume. Is there a predictive link between the clowns and school violence? I hope to capture some newsworthy items here, in the near future, and ponder their linkages.

Rolling Stone’s horrific “Phantom Clown” image is much scarier than most descriptions of the “real” ones seen.

I have also noticed that the alternative and mainstream media – Atlas Obscura, Seeker,  VocativWashington Post, New York Times, Rolling Stone, ReasonThe Conversation, Quartz, and others – have jumped in with overview “Phantom Clowns” articles, often quoting me.

I am grateful that there has been all due acknowledgment of my 1981 coining of the phrase “Phantom Clowns,” and the realization that the 1981 cases came a half-decade before Stephen King’s IT, published in 1986.

It is intriguing to read that I “came up with something called “The Phantom Clown Theory,” which attributes the proliferation of clown sightings to mass hysteria (usually sparked by incidents witnessed only by children).” Source, The Conversation, September 28, 2016.

Also, there does seem to be a growing awareness that the “coincidence” of these clown sightings in this 2016 election year may, indeed, be synchromystic.

Not Just Ferguson: Protests Scheduled for 83 Cities, “Direct Action Trainings” Held for Protesters

Melissa Melton
The Daily Sheeple

 It doesn’t matter what the grand jury decides now. Fear and anger are very powerful weapons and everyone who has allowed the powers that (shouldn’t) be to steer their emotions on this one has taken the bait.

Everyone knows the government, with its lapdog mainstream media in lockstep, has whipped up the Ferguson situation into a total frenzy.fergusonnationalresponsenetwork

The cops have stocked up on nearly $200k worth of riot gear, less-lethal ammunition and the like. Ferguson residents have been advised to go get guns because the cops won’t be able to protect them all from what’s coming. Firearm sales in the area have skyrocketed. Everyone is on edge.

Missouri’s governor has now preemptively declared a 30-day state of emergency and called out the National Guard — and the grand jury hasn’t even made it’s decision yet!

Basically, it’s on.

Ferguson, however, is not the only city set to hold protests immediately following the Darren Wilson grand jury announcement.

Actually, they aren’t even being referred to as protests anymore. They are now being called “planned responses.”

A Tumblr page for something called the “Ferguson National Response Network” has posted a very organized list with graphics for each location (which must have taken a lot of time and effort) detailing these “planned responses” that have been scheduled for a total of 82 cities across the U.S. and one in Canada after the grand jury announces their decision (something which, if it’s as scripted as the rest of this situation has been and continues to be, will be expertly timed with the holidays coming up).

Organizers are also holding something called “direct action trainings.”

Here’s what that looks like:

 

The organizers have also released a list of 19 “Proposed Rules of Engagement.”

Wow. Just wow. This is not your average civil disobedience. Martha Stewart has thrown less organized birthday parties than this. There are White House functions with less planning and training involved.

Anyone else get the sense that this whole thing has been co-opted? Think about it.

When you’re mad about something that’s wrong with the system, what do you do if you want to protest it? You pull out a black marker, get a poster board, call up your friends, maybe send out a few Tweets or Facebook messages, then you find a corner and start protesting.

You don’t get so angry with the system that you first a) write a proposed rules of engagement list, b) start fundraising campaigns, c) set up highly coordinated protests in 83 cities, d) coordinate mass informational meetings and finally e) hold direct action trainings then get ready to protest.

What average, random person has the time and money to pull off all that off properly?

Sure people have been protesting this for months now, but still. What monster has Ferguson now mutated into? Who is ultimately behind it, driving the agenda?

Many of the people who showed up to protest in Ferguson from the beginning were coming from out of town. There were definite provocateurs among the crowds trying to incite violence.

At this point, people are apparently quitting their jobs and flocking to Ferguson to devote all their time and energy to this.

A little over a week ago, The Washington Post ran an article titled, “Ferguson protest organizers: ‘I sleep, eat and breathe this.’”

Really?

Here’s an excerpt:

But a common thread runs through some of the most influential organizers. They are black, relatively new to civil rights activism and technologically savvy, masters of social media. Using Twitter, Vine and Instagram, they mobilize their peers, document every twist and turn, and annotate history in real time.

New to activism, huh? And yet, wow, they just so happen to be influential, savvy tech masters of social media who know how to mobilize everyone? No, that doesn’t stink of George Soros-funded phony color revolution stuff at all… (That was sarcasm, of course.)

On the same day as the WP article came out, The Daily Sheeple published an article about the fact that cops kill an average of THREE PEOPLE EVERY DAY in this country.

Three people a day!

Where’s the outrage from all Americans on all sides, all races, colors and creeds, on the bigger police state growing all around all of us EVERY SINGLE DAY in America? Where are the organized protests for all those who have died at the hands of an ever-increasing, ratcheted up tyrannical system enslaving us all?

There is a highly organized, scripted, funded, targeted agenda playing out in Ferguson, and people are basically falling for it.

The list of cities set for these “planned responses” to the Darren Wilson grand jury decision is below. If you live near one of these things, heads up.

When this all goes down, it’s not going to be pretty…which is exactly the way the people ultimately engineering this situation want it. Can you say “martial law?”

UPDATE: Curiously, Obama has announced that he’s going to be in Las Vegas on Friday (when the media has hinted the grand jury decision might come) after he announces his amnesty decision. Las Vegas is, ever so coincidentally, not on this list…in fact, Nevada isn’t even on this list, period.

Has Ebola already mutated to evade detection?

Ebola news coverage has all but dried up in the mainstream media, and so has the stock of available viral samples for disease testing, say scientists. It is highly likely that Ebola has already mutated so much that it is no longer detectable using standard assessments, but without these samples there is no way to know for sure, they say.

U.S. scientists who have been tracking the outbreak say the situation is getting murkier as active monitoring dwindles. Transport companies that previously would have shipped the virus are now leery of doing so due to safety concerns, while doctors in the most affected countries in West Africa have suddenly stopped sharing disease samples with the U.S.

According to Charles Chiu, a microbiologist and infectious disease expert at the University of California, San Francisco, the best experts in the field don’t even know if Ebola has mutated beyond recognition because tracking has deteriorated. As it currently stands, samples of the virus are nowhere to be found, which poses a major public health threat.

“No one really knows right now what has the virus mutated to or if it has mutated,” stated Chiu to Reuters. “We’re not going to be able to determine in advance whether or not [Ebola] has changed to a form where it might evade diagnostic assays or might render current vaccines or drugs ineffective.”

Infection rate up 900 percent in Sierra Leone, say most recent reports

Right before the corporate media agreed to stop covering Ebola at the direction of the Obama regime, it was reported that the infection rate was skyrocketing in Sierra Leone, one of the hardest-hit countries. The total infection count had jumped by nearly 4,000 people, topping 13,500 people, according to International Business Times.

While new cases of Ebola in the U.S. haven’t been officially reported, there are murmurs in New York City, Iowa, South Carolina and elsewhere that Ebola may still be spreading. Dozens of potential Ebola cases are currently being monitored in these areas, though it appears as though the medical system doesn’t really know how to confirm one way or the other.

“What we’re finding… is that the virus is mutating,” reported Robert Garry, Ph.D., a virologist and professor of microbiology at Tulane University, to WVUE in mid-October. “In fact, it’s mutating in humans as the virus spreads from human to human to human much faster than it was when it was just circulating around in the rain forest in the animals there.”

Hundreds being monitored in New York City during Obama media blackout

Despite the ongoing media blackout, some 357 people, and counting, are currently being monitored in New York City after demonstrating possible symptoms of Ebola. Dozens of others in Iowa and South Carolina are also under evaluation, indicating that the Ebola threat is far from over. But will anybody notice before it’s too late?

“The Ebola evaporation nicely coincides with Obama regime spear-carriers attempts to paint Republicans as nothing but rank fear-mongers exploiting the virus for political gain,” wrote Donn Marten for Downtrend, adding that the sudden loss in Ebola coverage “doesn’t pass the smell test.”

So far, there have been 341 mutations of Ebola since the outbreak began, according to a recent study published in the journal Science. This is a lot of change in a very short period of time, which suggests that Ebola is still out there spreading, regardless of what the mainstream media would have us all believe.

SEBASTIAN GORKA: CHRISTIAN HOLOCAUST UNDERWAY IN IRAQ, USA AND WORLD LOOK ON

When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000.

In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. This is the sad news that Breitbart’s National Security Editor and one of the world’s leading experts on asymmetric warfare, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, brought to Breitbart News Saturday, hosted by Editor in Chief Alex Marlow on Sirius XM Patriot Radio.

Dr. Gorka explained that “in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.”

Gorka points out that, over the last 20 years, America has stood up around the world to save Muslims. “Whether it was to save the Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for a humanitarian operation to save the remaining Christians in Iraq,” he said. “It is time for the American people and our representatives to do something for our co-religionists remaining in the Middle East.”

Marlow observed that the blatant religious cleansing is horrifying and asked Gorka: “Why is it that the mainstream press is not interested in the story?” Gorka first responded by saying “Let’s face it, this is a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.”

The Middle East expert went on to explain that the mainstream media is in full support of the White House narrative “that the President single-handedly killed Osama Bin Laden, and that Al Qaeda is now on the ropes; therefore, jihad must be shriveling up around the world.” This myopic strategy of only targeting Al Qaeda has provided great opportunities for other jihadists and has given rise to ISIS.

“On top of that,” Gorka asserts that, “the mainstream media are warped in terms of their world view.” According to Breitbart’s national security expert, the media is “post-modernist, sophisticated, and secularist. So when it comes to the idea of religious persecution, they say, ‘Well who really cares because I don’t believe in God. If you are not sophisticated enough to be a post-modernist secularist… tough on you!’”

Gorka didn’t finish there with his scathing indictment of the mainstream media. He added that it is their racism that will let this genocide of Christians continue. “To the mainstream media,” Gorka charged, “the dark skin person always has to be the victim. Either the Hamas terrorist in Gaza, the Nicaraguan gang bangers coming across the border likened to juvenile political refugees… the idea that the white skin Christian or the Israelis as victims, that goes against every narrative this media wishes to pedal. They are necessarily so locked into their own ideological vision of the world.”

Marlow summed it up by saying, “Christians are politically targeted in America frequently; they are being physically targeted in Africa, Syria, and Iraq.” Gorka emphasized that, from his first hand experiences in Africa, Christians will always be blamed for starting any upheaval.
