Freemasonry: Mankind's Death Wish 30 Nov 2005
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
(This updated article first appeared here Jan. 15, 2005)
Architects of Deception a 600-page history of Freemasonry by Estonian writer Jyri Lina offers profound insight into the true character of modern history.
Essentially, a dominant segment of Western society has joined the Jewish financial elite in embracing Freemasonry, a satanic philosophy that represents a death wish for civilization. They imagine somehow they will profit from the carnage and suffering caused by their "New World Order."
Incredible, bizarre and depressing as it sounds, Lina writes that 300 mainly Jewish banking families have used Freemasonry as an instrument to subvert, control and degrade the Western world.
This view is consistent with the 1938 NKVD interrogation of an illuminati member who names many of these banking families and confirms that Freemasons are expendable tools. (See my two-part "Rothschild Conducts Red Symphony" and "Terminated! Freemasonry's Final Revelation.")
Based on the archives of the powerful French Grand Orient Lodge, captured in June 1940 and later made public by the Russians, Lina details how Freemasonry has conspired for world domination and orchestrated all major revolutions and wars in the modern era. (Lina, p.332)
Masons, often Jewish, are responsible for Communism, Zionism, Socialism, Liberalism (and Feminism.) They love big government because it is the ultimate monopoly. "World government" (dictatorship) is the final trophy. This is the vision behind 9-11 and the "War on Terror."
These "world revolutionary" "progressive" movements all mirror Lucifer's rebellion against God and nature which is at the heart of Freemasonry. They ensnare millions of gullible idealists by promising a utopia based on materialism and "reason" and dedicated to "liberty, equality and fraternity," "public ownership" or some other idealistic sounding claptrap. It's called bait-and-switch.
According to Lina: "The primary aim of modern freemasonry is to build the New World Order, a spiritual Temple of Solomon, where non-members are nothing but slaves [and] ...where human beings would be sacrificed to Yahweh." (52)
Lina cites numerous Jewish sources that claim Freemasonry is based on Judaism and is "the executive political organ of the Jewish financial elite." (81-83)
The common goal of these Masonic inspired movements is to undermine race, religion, nation and family ("all collective forces except our own") by promoting social division, self indulgence and "tolerance" i.e. miscegenation, atheism, nihilism, global-ism, sexual "liberation" and homosexuality thereby reducing humanity to a uniform dysfunctional and malleable mush.
Lina and others who attempt to alert humanity to its real condition are routinely slandered as anti-Semitic, fascist, and right wing "haters" by people indirectly employed by the bankers.
This tactic shields the conspirators from scrutiny and makes discussion of our grim predicament impossible.
I am a Jew. I am not part of this banking monopoly, nor is the majority of Jews. By way of analogy, the mafia is considered mostly Italian but most Italians do not belong to the mafia.
Italians don't viciously attack opponents of organized crime and call them "racists" and "hate mongers". That would look awfully suspicious. Jews compromise themselves by their defence of the Masonic bankers and their perverse vision for humanity.
My four grandparents perished in the Jewish holocaust. I demand to know the real reason they were murdered. London-based Masonic bankers and their cronies brought Hitler to power in order to provoke war, control Stalin, and justify the creation of Israel. They betrayed non-Zionist Jews and let them perish. They are using the Jewish people in the same way they use the Masons.
THE ILLUMINIST CONSPIRACY
We cannot understand the modern world unless we appreciate that it is the result of the Masonic conspiracy. People scoff yet the evidence stares them in the face every day.
The Great Seal of the United States on every dollar bill is a Masonic symbol. There are 33 steps on the side of the pyramid representing the 33 degrees of Freemasonry. The Masons established the United States as a base to advance their goal of world supremacy. According to "The Temple and the Lodge" the Masonic English generals let their American "Brothers" win a
seeming independence. (Baigent & Leigh, pp.252ff.)
Similarly, the emblem of the United Nations is also a Masonic symbol. The world is caught in a grid consisting of 33 spaces surrounded by acacia leaves, which signifies intense activity in masonry. (215)
Three-quarters of US presidents in the Twentieth Century were high-level Masons. At times half of the Supreme Court were. Both Bush and Kerry are Masons (Skull and Bones.) FDR, Churchill, Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin were masons. Most Zionist leaders were and are Masons. Gerhard Schroeder, Jacques Chirac and Tony Blair are Freemasons. So is Sadaam Hussein, which suggests the Iraq war could be a sadistic charade.
There are over six-million Masons in 32,000 lodges around the world including 2.5 million in the US. In 1929, 67% of Members of Congress were Masons. There are 500,000 Masons in England with more than 100 lodges in the City of London (i.e. the financial district) alone including one at the Bank of England. More than five per cent of British judges are Masons.
Lina believes, "Freemasonry plays the same role in Western society as the Communist Party did in the Soviet Union. Without belonging to the freemasonry there is no chance of a fast career, regardless of how talented one is."
Keep in mind that Communism was a Masonic enterprize and the puzzle starts to take shape. Educated people scoff at the notion of conspiracy. Ever wonder why? That mortar board on their head at graduation is a Masonic symbol. Black gowns signify the occult. They have been indoctrinated and don't have a clue!
Lina says Freemasons not only control politics but also virtually every sector of Western society, including science and culture. "The present cultural life has become virtually unconscious," he writes. "We have witnessed the beginning of cultural senility." (333)
In his pamphlet "The Open Conspiracy: Blueprint for a World Revolution" (1929) the Freemason H.G. Wells describes an "open secret society" consisting of society's leading men operating as a hidden force to secure world resources, reduce population through war and replace the nation state with world dictatorship. (340)
Human beings are naturally attracted to good and repulsed by evil. Thus evil always represents itself as good. To the public, and its own lower ranks, Freemasonry pretends to be dedicated to "making good men better", humanism, tolerance, Christianity and you-name-it.
If this were true, would they have to extract vows of secrecy from members on pain of slitting their throat? Would they have been condemned by many Popes and banned from numerous countries? (84)
I do not wish to impugn the many good and decent men in the lower "Blue Degrees" who are unaware of Freemasonry's true function and character. But there is abundant evidence and testimony that Freemasonry is a satanic cult dedicated to the worship of death. (134-138)
For example, when the Italian Grand Orient Lodge was evicted from the Palazzio Bourghese in Rome in 1893, the owner found a shrine dedicated to Satan. The Italian freemasons published a newspaper in the 1880's where they admitted time and again, "Our leader is Satan!" (135)
The Masons also admit to having a revolutionary political agenda. Typical of statements Lina cites from Masonic publications is the following from a German magazine in 1910:" The driving thought is at all times focused on destruction and annihilation, because the power of this great secret society can only rise from the ruins of the existing order of society." (272)
The Illuminist Conspiracy is the brake responsible for humanity's arrested development. Mankind resembles a person suffering from a serious disease and sinking into a coma.
Juri Lina has written a courageous book to revive us. He says we face "the largest spiritual crisis in the history of mankind...They have taken our history, our dignity, our wisdom and our honor, sense of responsibility, spiritual insights and our traditions."
We are partly to blame, he says: "We have failed to act against the Masonic madness due to our enormous gullibility. We have been totally fooled and ignored the warning signals." (274)
He ends on a hopeful note, saying evil is dysfunctional and inevitably destroys itself. "Freemasonry carries within it the seeds of its own destruction." (563)
Wars, revolutions and depressions are all part of a "revolutionary" process designed to frogmarch humanity to "world government" under the rubric of Freemasonry which may be a surrogate for an alliance of occult Jewish and gentile financial elites. Their "self-destruction" seems to be our best hope since the public is too feckless and weak to resist.

The book also contains many gossipy nuggets such as Hitler had a son; Lenin was a homosexual; Castro is Jewish and a multimillionaire; and Henry Kissinger was/is a Soviet agent! He says the Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Rotary and Lions Clubs were founded by Masons. Golf was invented by Masons and has great significance to them
Does a benevolent organization need to enforce secrecy at the pain of cutting the throat?
Albert Pike, Head of Scottish Rite, on the great hoodwinking in "Morals and Dogma" (1871):
"Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled ..."
"The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry." (pp. 104, 105 & 819)

Lawyers give up power to rule on disputes 30 Nov 2005
SCOTLAND'S 9000 solicitors appear certain to be stripped of the right to police themselves after their governing body effectively conceded defeat in a battle to retain control over how the profession is regulated.
The Law Society of Scotland yesterday urged the Scottish Executive to create an independent body to deal with complaints about inadequate professional service from lawyers.
It acknowledged that piecemeal reforms to a much-criticised system of self-regulation had failed to win public confidence.
The historic decision by the society's ruling council heralds the end of a centuries-old tradition that lawyers are always the right people to sit in judgment on the competence of their peers.
Some observers believe solicitors are bowing to the inevitable. An executive consultation on legal complaints-handling attracted 500 responses, a number second only to its paper on banning smoking in public.
Only about 10% backed retention of the current regime under which ultimate power over resolving complaints lies with the society and sister body, the Faculty of Advocates.
Caroline Flanagan, society president, said: "We have considered responses to the executive's consultation, (which) show an increasing desire for a more demonstrably independent complaints system. There needs to be more radical change than was envisaged by the society or the executive after the justice one report in 2002."
She added: "Council has agreed that the only way forward for the executive is to decide on an independent consumer service complaints body. Anything less independent such as enhancing the ombudsman's powers or creating a legal services commissioner will not be sufficiently demonstrably independent."
About 80% of complaints to the society concern service-related matters. Ms Flanagan stressed that the society wanted to retain control over misconduct and discipline issues, which can give rise to solicitors being censured or struck off.
The society's apparent U-turn brings the body broadly into line with England and Wales where legislation will soon see service complaints about solicitors handled by a body independent of the Law Society in London.
John Swinney, former SNP leader who has contributed to The Herald's campaign for a more independent system, welcomed the news. He remains adamant, however, that complaints of alleged misconduct by solicitors should also be routed through the new independent watchdog if public confidence is to be fully restored.
He said: "It has been impossible for the society to exercise a dual function of promoting the interests of solicitors while also protecting the public. It has now accepted that this is no longer tenable."
Julia Clarke, public affairs spokeswoman for consumer body Which? in Scotland, said she was "surprised but very pleased" by the society's statement. "We believe that a completely independent complaints-handling system is the only way forward. It is long overdue."
The Scottish parliament's justice one committee produced a string of recommendations for improving complaints-handling three years ago, while endorsing the regulatory role of the professional bodies. However, its suggestion that the powers of the Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman, the external "watchdog of last resort", be enhanced was ignored.
The society and faculty can, and sometimes do, ignore the ombudsman's recommendations. Complaints to the ombudsman about the society and the faculty have more than quadrupled since 2001, to 500.

McConnell attacks opponents over asylum
JACK McConnell yesterday fired back angrily at critics
of his attempt to safeguard children of asylum seekers
who are detained during dawn raids on their homes.
Ahead of talks today with Tony McNulty, the
immigration minister, the first minister attempted to
defuse the pressure on his administration, with
sources close to Mr McConnell seeking to distance him
from comments by Malcolm Chisholm, the communities
minister, who called for an end to dawn raids.
Questioned at Holyrood, the first minister declined a
challenge to back Mr Chisholm, choosing instead to
portray the row as the "petty politics" of his
Mr McNulty went out of his way to try to repair the
damage inflicted on the first minister earlier this
week, when Home Office officials played down the
influence of the Scottish Executive in securing
safeguards for children during the raids.
He said the first minister could take credit for
reforms that would affect the whole of the UK. He said
executive officials had asked for an end to dawn
raids, though that had previously been denied by the
executive. He defended current practice, including the
use of handcuffs and body armour.
Mr McNulty set out some of the changes that can be
expected, apparently as a result of Scottish pressure,
including special arrangements to accommodate
Scotland's distinct children's hearings system,
complaints process, and care inspection systems.
An agreement may not be ready until March, but talks
are continuing about advance preparations for removal
with social workers, using fewer officers in raids
when children are to be detained, and to have more
female officers attending.
Visits to families ahead of deportation are to take
into account medical or special needs, as well as
children's exam times.
There are also talks around materials being provided
for schools, to deal with the upset caused when
friends abruptly disappear from classes, and
discussion about providing incentives for voluntary
departures, after asylum seekers' appeals fail, such
as the government paying for freight of bulky
There was criticism of the first minister, however,
from school friends of children who have been removed
from their Glasgow homes, and who won a campaigning
award at The Herald/Diageo politician of the year
award dinner last week. Amal Azzudin, 16, originally
from Somalia, said: "We thought he had so much power
as he's the first minister of Scotland, but now we
know he's got no power. I'm ashamed of him."
Facing hostile questions at Holyrood about his attempt
to influence dawn raids, Mr McConnell attacked the
opposition for allowing "petty party politics to
distort our national character".
He told Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP deputy leader: "This
issue is not about the personal egos of politicians or
their relationships with other politicians, but about
the children, and the impact on them of the policies."
Ms Sturgeon said he had failed to deliver what he
promised on ensuring safeguards, and had been made to
look foolish by the Home Office.
Annabel Goldie, Scottish Tory leader, said his
reputation and the executive had been badly damaged,
and are "both held in scant regard at Westminster".
Colin Fox, the Scottish Socialist leader, claimed the
first minister backed the forced removals.
Crooked laywers sell flawed mortgages 26 Nov 2005
MPs act on new endowment injustice
THOUSANDS of Scots who claim they were mis-sold
endowment mortgages by solicitors are now being backed
by MPs in their struggle for fair compensation deals.
MPs have signed a Commons motion, calling on ministers
to remedy a "grossly unfair anomaly", which means
people who bought a policy through a lawyer in
Scotland and face huge shortfalls do not qualify for a
The chairman of the powerful Commons treasury select
committee has also written to the industry regulator,
Tens of thousands of people in England and Wales who
bought policies which left them struggling with
shortfalls have already been given pay-outs.
But Scots who bought policies from solicitors before
December 1, 2001, when the Financial Services and
Markets Act came into effect, do not qualify for a
deal from the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
Sandra Osborne, Labour MP for Ayr, Carrick, and
Cumnock, said: "There is a huge injustice here. People
should have equal access to compensation."
She has gained the support of a number of colleagues,
including John McFall, chairman of the Treasury select
committee, who is writing to the Financial Services
Authority (FSA) about the issue.
Under the act, the sale of mortgages by solicitors
were exempt from regulation by the FSA on the grounds
that they were already overseen by the Law Society of
In England, few solicitors were involved in selling
endowment mortgages, and those who did usually set up
a separate financial services company that would have
come under FSA regulations. Mortgagees there can then
seek redress through the FOS, which has the power to
order a firm involved to make up the difference
between the current position and what it would have
been if they held a simple repayment mortgage.
In Scotland, those mis-sold policies by solicitors
before the 2001 deadline can expect a maximum pay-out
from the Law Society of only £1000.
In a letter to Mrs Osborne earlier this month, Ivan
Lewis, Treasury minister, wrote: "We recognise that
there is a problem in relation to endowment policies
that were purchased through a solicitor in Scotland
prior to the Financial Services and Markets Act...
Consumers who purchased through a solicitor in
Scotland prior to FSMA do, of course, retain their
legal rights to pursue misrepresentation through the
Mrs Osborne told The Herald: "My argument is that FSA
is a reserved matter to the UK parliament, so everyone
should come under FSA.
"It's not good enough to say it is too difficult to
do. The government has acknowledged there is a
problem, but there is no natural justice in saying
it's too difficult to do anything about."
Mrs Osborne will today table the early day motion,
calling on the government to "investigate a remedy to
this grossly unfair anomaly".
So far this year, the ombudsman service has received
more than 70,000 complaints of mortgage endowment
mis-selling across the UK. Typically, around half of
those complaints are upheld. The Law Society of
Scotland received 931 complaints in 2004. Fewer than a
dozen were upheld. From January to June this year, the
society received a further 906.
A spokeswoman for the Law Society said it had "every
sympathy with people who have been mis-sold endowment
policies or who have a shortfall on their policy", but
added that £1000 is the statutory limit on
LAWMAN: MY SAUNA SEX WITH H00KERS 6 Nov 2005
A TOP Scots lawman last night sensationally admitted paying for sex in a sauna.
Advocate Alan Muir, 41, confirmed using hookers after revealing details of his sex life in an astonishing article for a legal magazine.
Bachelor Muir, 41, was defending former Sheriff Hugh Neilson who resigned after being caught in a Glasgow sauna.
The Sunday Mail revealed in September that the 52-year-old admitted to police that he paid a prostitute for sex.
Muir admitted - in The Firm magazine - that he had also visited saunas.
He said: "I've done it, hell, I've done it often. It is an up-front, honest commercial transaction between two consenting adults."
Last night Muir, who lives in Perth, said that he stood by all his comments.
He added: "I was asked if I wanted a pseudonym with the article but I insisted my own name was on it"I admitted I've been to a sauna and massage parlour and stand by that. I do not think I've done anything wrong.
"I don't see any problem with this and don't see why it should cause concern.
"Sheriff Neilson was a very good sheriff who should not have lost his job because of what he did in his private life.
"There are people in the judiciary in Scotland who have done far worse than he did. I do not see any issue with what Sheriff Neilson or myself have done."
The advocate's confession was made days after a prosecutor was arrested while allegedly in a sex act with a hooker in Glasgow city centre.
Stuart MacFarlane, 37, was arrested eight days ago in Bothwell Street, just minutes after leaving a police reception in the same week that the Scottish Executive announced new laws making it illegal for men to approach prostitutes on the street for sex.
Under the present legislation, only prostitutes selling their sexual services are prosecuted.
Deputy Justice Minister Hugh Henry said: "For too long, the law in Scotland has been focused on women soliciting and not on purchasing sex.
"There is a need to redress this balance and that's what we are doing with this approach.
"The new offence will focus on the nuisance or harm arising from activities relating to street prostitution, whether caused by seller or purchaser.
"The intent of this legislation is clear - rebuilding respect for individuals and protecting communities from the harm caused by the sex trade. We will replace the existing soliciting offence which is both unfair and outdated."
According to one senior legal source, Neilson and Muir may have been guilty - under bylaws - of committing a crime.
The source said: "They had attended an establishment paying lip service to being a sauna, when in fact it is an organised brothel - where many of the girls are basically being held captive.
"It could be seen that they took part in the activities of an organised brothel, which is an offence under some bylaws."
The Faculty of Advocates refused to comment

MURDEROUS WITCH WOMENS AID NEVER MENTION 6 Nov 2005
AND SHE WOULD STILL WIN ANY CUSTODIAL BATTLE IN THE UK DUE TO THE HEADBANGER JUDGES RUNNING FAMILY COURTS
EXCLUSIVE: THE NEW FACE OF ROSE WEST
THIS is the new look of mass killer Rose West 10 years after she was jailed for the rest of her life.Frumpy Rose, 51, has trimmed her hair to a shorter, neater style and has lost two stone.
She has also replaced her bulky glasses for NHS contact lenses and wears pastel colours. A source at her cushy Middlesex jail said: "She's made a big effort."
Her efforts to smarten herself up come as angry prisoners at her new jail complain she is pampered by staff desperate to ensure she does not carry out threats to kill herself.
They say 51-year-old West is treated like royalty and was even given a personal tour of the prison after moving there from high security Durham last month.
But no amount of pampering can touch the flinty soul that led Rose, 51, to kill 10 victims without conscience.
A source told the Mirror yesterday: "West has made a real effort to clean up her appearance. She's lost about two to three stone, got rid of those horrible glasses and spends cash she earns cleaning and serving food on make-up. She doesn't look like the crazy serial killer we all remember and appears quite respectable. But she's shown no remorse. She's ice cold.
"Most prisoners talk about their crimes and try to come to terms with what they've done. West rarely mutters a word to anyone and has turned down counselling. She's just empty."
West - who will never be freed - moved to the £200million state of the art Bronzefield jail, near Ashford, Middlesex, last month.
The insider said: "The red carpet was rolled out when she arrived. Three guards gave her a personal guided tour of the prison, showing her all the facilities. Normally new inmates are taken into a room and just handed a few leaflets.
"I haven't seen a welcome like that since Princess Anne was shown round the prison before it opened."However, within 30 minutes of arriving, hated West was placed in segregation after a group of inmates threatened to kill her and cut her up.
Devastated at leaving behind a prison girlfriend in Durham, the bisexual former prostitute is now on hourly suicide watch.
To give West as few reasons as possible to harm herself staff have been told to be make sure she is "happy and safe" and "settles in well".
A prison hairdresser is on hand to visit the mother-of-eight in her cell and keep her new haircut in trim.
West's door is unlocked between 7am and 8pm leaving her free to roam the segregation unit all day.
The cell, overlooking the prison's courtyard, is painted in calming beige with blue curtains and matching bed linen. West has a china tea set, TV and video.
But the cell walls are bare with no pictures of her vile husband and fellow murderer Fred, or the rest of her family. Astonishingly in view of her suicide threats, West has been allowed knitting needles so she can enjoy her favourite hobby of making jumpers and scarves. She also has a sewing machine.
The insider said: "She has a very easy life. She's paid for cleaning the segregation unit and serving food. But she never has to do much.
"Often she's the only one in there so there's no one to serve food to. Even when there is, they won't take their dinner from her so the guards often have to serve it instead.
"Receiving knitting needles as a privilege annoyed lots of the girls.
"Staff also think it's strange as she's claimed she's considered killing herself. It doesn't seem right that she's alone with them."That's all she does really, sits in her cell and knits. None of the inmates talk to her."Despite all this pampering she still claims she wants to take her own life. She was settled and happy in Durham where she had a girlfriend.
"She didn't want to leave and sees no future where she is now. She knows she'll never get out." West is set to be moved from the segregation unit this weekend to encourage her to mix with other inmates.Staff are concerned about her refusal to communicate and plan to move her to the high dependency unit for inmates with medical and psychiatric issues.
HMP Bronzefield, the first purpose-built women's prison since Holloway, is operated by UKDS for the Prison Service under a £100million contract. It can hold 450 detainees.
Unusually the jail is decorated in bright colours to help keep inmates calm.
Director Janine McDowell said the rainbow shades were used to make the prison as "least oppressive as possible".
Hilary Dalke, who has overseen makeovers in a dozen jails said: "There needs to be variety if you want to get away from that institutional feel - simple things like a different colour outside a cell than inside."
Diplomacy by Deception 5 Nov 2005
"Diplomacy by Deception"
by John Coleman 
This is a true and accurate account of treasonous conduct by the British and American governments: An account of how their citizens are deceived by policies provoking actions that are totally detrimental to the well-being of their citizens. Thoroughly researched, the book provides a great deal of hitherto unpublished information and throws new light on such diverse operations as the Gulf War and the Bolshevik Revolution. The chapter on covert actions throws new light on the murder of Martin Luther King, Pope John Paul 1, and other notables marked for elimination.
The bloodshed that resulted from the creation of an artificial "Saudi Arabia"; the foreign policy making role of the petroleum industry; the rape of Mexico by British and American oil barons; the revolutions they ignited which cost thousands upon thousands of lives; British conquest of India, the pernicious Indian "apartheid" caste system. These are some of the subjects dealt with in this historic expose of how our goernments deceive us under the color of diplomacy.
"Diplomacy By Deception" tells us that the United Nations is a war-making body, not a peace-keeping organization, and how the Rockefellers and Alger Hiss, aided by the top Illuminati Dulles family, got the United States involved with the United Nations. There is a masterly analysis of constitutional roadblocks barring U.S. membership of the United Nations that will come as a surprise and leave no doubt that we are not now, nor can we ever be, a member of the United Nations.
"Diplomacy By Deception" will forever alter your perception of the two leading governments in Western civilization. This is an excellent companion book to the "Committee of 300" by the same author.
EASTENDERS BROTHERS BATTERED BY THEIR WOMEN 5 Nov 2005
Where are the womens aid lot just now?
REAL-LIFE DRAMA Police arrest Ross Kemp's missus and Steve McFadden's ex
THE stars who play the rock- hard Mitchell brothers in EastEnders were allegedly battered by their real-life partners yesterday.
Ross Kemp, alias Grant Mitchell, suffered a "thick lip" at his London home in the early hours. His wife, Sun editor Rebekah Wade, spent eight hours in police custody after the incident.
Hours after Wade's arrest, Steve McFadden - who plays Kemp's screen brother Phil - was attacked by his ex-girlfriend.
Angela Bostock walloped him inthe face during a row in the street outside her home.
McFadden had called for the police and Bostock, the mother of McFadden's two children, was arrested at the scene.
Police said the two incidents were not linked Leading publicist Max Clifford said: "You could not make it up.
WOMAN MURDERER FINALLY GETS JAILED 5 Nov 2005
Judges jail parking death woman
Other family members show their delight at the sentence
A woman who killed a grandmother in a row over a parking space at a car boot sale in Glasgow has been jailed for four years by appeal court judges. They overturned the original sentence of probation and community service imposed on Carol McMillan, 34, who had admitted killing Ann Whittle, 58.
Mrs Whittle's husband Norman said it was a "brilliant decision".
The Court of Criminal Appeal heard how witnesses described McMillan as "mental, berserk and out-of-control".
Passing judgment, Lord Cullen said there was no alternative to jail.
In a written judgment, he and two other judges said her actions had been "devoid of any mitigating circumstances".
"We consider that the advocate depute was well-founded in maintaining that the sentencing judge [Lady Dorrian] failed to take adequate account of the serious nature of McMillan's attack on Mrs Whittle and that she attached undue weight to McMillan's later expressions of remorse," they wrote.
I could not accept that culpable homicide. It is still murder to me and to my family, in their eyes
Mrs Whittle, of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, had an undiagnosed coronary condition and died of a heart attack following the attack by McMillan, a first offender, in Blochairn in August 2004.
During the appeal hearing, the Crown said that one of the factors which had influenced the sentencing judge, Lady Dorrian, was the remorse said to have been shown by McMillan, from Holytown, Lanarkshire.
Up to 10 independent witnesses told how she was in a frenzy as she grabbed her victim by the hair and kicked her in the face three times.
There were cries of "yes" from people in the public gallery as Lord Cullen gave the judges' decision and members of the dead woman's family hugged each other.
Outside the court in Edinburgh, they said they would now be approaching the justice minister, particularly to raise issues related to the plea-bargaining system.
McMillan was originally charged with murder but this was reduced to culpable homicide. Her partner, Charles Freeburn, had sentence deferred for assaulting Mrs Whittle's husband Norman.
Ann Whittle collapsed and died after the attack
Mr Whittle said: "I just thought that was a brilliant decision today."
"What she did to my wife was unbelievable - and what I got from her partner Charles Freeburn, a kicking. I could have saved my wife if he hadn't jumped in and given me a kicking."
Speaking of McMillan, he said: "She murdered my wife. I could not accept that culpable homicide. It is still murder to me and to my family, in their eyes."
"It is a good result but four years is four years. I thought she might have got more but that is the way it works with the law. At least we have got something."
Town's good wishes
He added: "The people of Coatbridge have been wonderful. Everyone has helped us. Everyone has wished me good luck."
Heather Russell, Ann Whittle's sister, welcomed the verdict.
"No time will ever be enough, it won't bring Ann back," she said outside the court.
"But this is fantastic because it has been turned around."
The non-custodial sentence caused a storm of protest and a petition was submitted to the Crown Office.
After the hearing, the dead woman's family praised the Crown for doing a "brilliant job".
CSA bosses grab £140k 5 Nov 2005
BOSSES at the shambolic Child Support Agency trousered £140,000 of bonuses as single parents went without a bean, it emerged yesterday. And last night outraged MPs demanded the senior civil servants involved be stripped of their PERFORMANCE-RELATED windfalls.
The rewards were revealed by new CSA chief executive Stephen Geraghty on the orders of Work Minister James Plaskitt.
He was forced to admit 28 bonuses — totalling £136,862 — were dished out between 2001/02 and 2004/05.
The bonuses are usually hidden under ‘salaries’ in the CSA’s annual report.
Mr Geraghty also said the overall pay bill for the agency’s top flunkies neared £3million over the four years.
Ten were paid an astonishing £791,020 last year.
The row comes just days after ministers admitted more than a million calls have gone unanswered at the CSA.
The backlog of cases still stands at nearly 350,000 and mums have to wait an average 448 days for their situation to be assessed. Unless the CSA tackles the problems it will take NINE YEARS to sort out the debacle.
Last night Lib Dem work and pensions spokesman David Laws said: “It’s unbelievable and scandalous that any bonus at all should be being paid in an organisation which is in chaos and failing children and families.”
Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind said: “One would need to know what justification there can possibly be for paying bonuses of that scale for an organisation whose record overall has been shambolic.”
Meanwhile, Kevan Jones, Labour MP for North Durham, demanded the CSA be wound up.
He said: “These payments are scandalous. My constituents will be gobsmacked.
“These officials should not have got bonuses and should be stripped of them.”
And Tory MP Justine Greening said: “Many mums are waiting for maintenance payments to survive. They will be infuriated that CSA bosses are getting bonuses.
The CSA chiefs raking it in include chief executive Doug Smith — he collected up to £150,000 in 2004-05 before he was ousted a year ago.
His deputy Mike Isaac — who retired last month — pocketed up to £105,000.
Astonishingly, ministers defended the bonuses.
Last night a spokesman for the Department for Work and Pensions said: “A number of senior managers have worked extremely hard to improve performance on the new child support system in particular.
“These bonuses reflect these contributions.”
Bent lawyer stole £6m 5 Nov 2005
TOP City lawyer who fled to the US after stealing £5.8million from clients to fund a life of luxury was yesterday jailed for eight years.
Michael Fielding, 59, used his “immense intellect” to con colleagues into countersigning cheques.
During his three-year crime spree the scheming solicitor siphoned off £1.1million in just one day. He used the money he stole to:
Pay off massive debts.
Move into an exclusive penthouse in London’s Regents Park.
Buy a £350,000 holiday home in Miami, Florida.
Splash out on gems and stash them in safety deposit boxes.
Fielding realised his number was up after intercepting a letter to his central London law firm Lawrence Graham from a client in Chicago who had uncovered his scam.
He left his own letter on his boss’s chair, saying: “There is no way I can adequately convey to you the sorrow for what I have done and the distress it has caused. I simply cannot face the shame of this. I have the well-being of my family at heart.”
Fielding vowed to return to face the music. But instead he laid low with his wife in Florida for four years.
Prosecutor Helen Malcolm said: “He had a love of clothes and an expensive taste in jewellery.”
He returned in June as his extradition loomed. At Southwark Crown Court yesterday, Judge Geoffrey Rivlin told him: “You’ve left a trail of financial devastation. The figures are almost beyond comprehension.”
Fielding admitted 24 thefts from March 1998 to May 2001. They cost partners £1million in insurance premiums — but he has not repaid any cash.
A Law Society tribunal has ruled he can never practice again.

Bohemian Grove Fact Sheet 3 Nov 2005
What is the Bohemian Grove?
The Bohemian Grove is a 2700 acre redwood forest, located in Monte Rio, CA. It contains accommodation for 2000 people to "camp" in luxury. It is owned by the Bohemian Club.
What is the Bohemian Club?
The Bohemian Club is a private. all male club, which is headquartered in the Bohemian building in San Francisco. It was formed in 1872 by men who sought shelter from the frontier culture (or lack of culture).
Who are the present members?
The Club has evolved into an association of rich and powerful men, mostly of this country (there are similar organizations in other countries). Some artists are allowed to join (often at reduced rates), because of their social status and entertainment value. The membership list has included every Republican U.S. president (as well as some Democrats) since 1923, many cabinet officials, and director; & CEO's of large corporations, including major financial institutions.
What industries are represented among the members?
Major military contractors, oil companies, banks (including the Federal Reserve), utilities (including nuclear power), and national media (broadcast and print) have high-ranking officials as club members or guests. Many members are, or have been, on the board of directors of several of these corporations. You should note that most of the above industries depend heavily on a relationship with government for their profitability.
The members stay in different camps at the Grove, which have varying status levels. Members & frequent guests of the most prestigious camp (Mandalay) include: Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, S. D. Bechtel, Jr., Thomas Watson Jr. (IBM), Phillip Hawley (B of A), William Casey (CIA). and Ralph Bailey (Dupont). George Bush resides in a less prestigious camp (Hillbillies) with A. W. Clausen (World Bank), Walter Cronkite, and William F. Buckley.
What activities take place at the grove?
The grove is the site of a two week retreat every July (as well as other smaller get-togethers throughout the year). At these retreats, the members commune with nature in a truly original way. They drink heavily from morning through the night, bask in their freedom to urinate on the redwoods, and perform pagan rituals (including the "Cremation of Care", in which the members wearing red-hooded robes, cremate a coffin effigy of "Dull Care" at the base of a 40 foot owl altar). Some (20%) engage in homosexual activity (but few of them support gay rights or AIDS research). They watch (and participate in) plays and comedy shows in which women are portrayed by male actors. Although women are not allowed in the Grove, members often leave at night to enjoy the company of the many prostitutes who come from around the world for this event. Is any of this hard to believe? Employees of the Grove have said that no verbal description can accurately portray the bizarre behavior of the Grove's inhabitants.
Besides this type of merriment. the annual gathering serves as an informational clearing house for the elite. The most powerful men in the country do their "networking" here, despite the Grove's motto "weaving spiders come not here" (don't do business in the Grove). At these gatherings men representing the government, military-industrial, and financial sectors meet and make major policy decisions. The Manhattan project, which produced the first atomic bombs, was conceived at the Grove in 1942. Other decisions made at the Grove include who our presidential candidates will be. There are speeches, known as "Lakeside Talks", wherein high-ranking officials disseminate information which is not available to the public-at-large.
What's not right about this?
When powerful people work together, they become even more powerful. The Grove membership is wealthy, and becoming more so, while the middle class is steadily becoming poorer. This close-knit group determines whether prices rise or fall (by their control of the banking system, money supply, and markets), and they make money whichever way markets fluctuate. They determine what our rights are and which laws have effect, by appointing judges. They decide who our highest officials shall be by consensus among themselves, and then selling candidates to us via the media which they own. Important issues and facts are omitted from discussion in the press, or slanted to suit their goals, but they are discussed frankly at the Grove. Is there true democracy when so much power is concentrated in so few hands? Is there any real difference between the public and private sectors when cabinet members come from the boardrooms of large corporations? Is the spending of billions on weapons, which are by consensus no longer needed, really the will of the people? Or is it the will of General Electric, General Dynamics, and the other weapons contractors represented at the Grove?
What can I do to make a difference?
Educate yourself about the Grove and it's inhabitants, and the true nature of the power structure in the world. Then educate your friends. Since most major newspapers and broadcast stations are owned by "insiders", be wary of everything you hear in the press. If you can, participate in protest activities during the July retreat.

FISCAL IS NICKED OVER SEX ACT WITH VICE GIRL 3 Nov 2005
Prosecutor held after cops' bash
A SENIOR prosecutor was arrested over an alleged sex act with a prostitute minutes after leaving a reception at police headquarters.
Stuart MacFarlane, 37, was held in the early hours of Saturday in Glasgow's red-light area as the vice girl allegedly performed a sex act on him.
MacFarlane, a married dad of two, is a leading procurator fiscal, with responsibility for prosecutions in large parts of Glasgow. He has been reported to his own office over alleged indecency and is also being investigated over allegations of resisting arrest.
MacFarlane, nicknamed Roger Ramjet because of his lantern jaw, mingled with senior cops on Friday night at a function at Strathclyde Police headquarters in Pitt Street, Glasgow.
He was arrested with a woman in nearby Bothwell Street at 1.05am on Saturday.
MacFarlane and the woman were taken to a police station, questioned, then released. Both were reported to the procurator fiscal.
A Crown Office spokesman said the police file on MacFarlane would be considered by prosecutors in Edinburgh to make sure of "impartiality". It will be up to the Edinburgh fiscals to decide whether he faces court.
MacFarlane, who lives near Eaglesham, Renfrewshire, recently returned from a tour of duty with the Territorial Army in Iraq He served as a prosecutor in Arbroath and Dundee before becoming principal procurator fiscal depute in Glasgow.
MacFarlane's role is mainly managerial and he does not spent a lot of time attending court.
The Crown Office spokesman said: "A report was submitted to the procurator fiscal at Glasgow on Monday in relation to an incident involving a member of staff.
"We do not comment on personnel issues as these are clearly confidential. However, the member of staff in question is not presently at work.
"In accordance with clearly established procedure, the report will be considered by Crown counsel at the Crown Office in Edinburgh in order to ensure absolute impartiality and independence."
Police said: "We can confirm that a 37year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were arrested at around 1.05am on Saturday October 29 in Glasgow city centre.
"Both are subject to a report to the procurator fiscal in connection with alleged indecency."
The Executive announced new proposals this week aimed at cracking down on kerb-crawling.
Under the plans, prostitutes will no longer be prosecuted for soliciting. Instead, vice girls and punters who cause nuisance or harm will be targeted.
The Bankers Are Coming 3 Nov 2005
"Centuries ago, long before printing and engraving were
invented, our European forefathers employed gold and silver,
impressed with the stamp of the sovereign government, as their
circulating medium. It was their custom to deposit their surplus
coins with a man who was ingenious enough to construct a strong room
inaccessible to thieves. In return, the strong room keeper gave the
depositors a slip of paper best described as a receipt which, on
presentation, enabled the depositor to take out his gold or silver
Many strong room keepers began doing business in the more
populous centers of European countries. It was not long until they
discovered that honest depositors (believing that the strong room
keepers were as honest as themselves) did not call regularly for
their gold, but preferred to transfer among themselves the slips of
paper or the receipts. At least 90% of the gold and silver
depositors adopted this practice.
Thus it was, taking advantage of this practice, that the
strong room keepers began to issue more receipts for deposited gold
than there was actual gold in their vaults. They practiced a
confidence game. They commercialized upon the credulity of their
For example: Some enterprising merchant, anxious to invest
in a foreign cargo, required immediate money to transact his
business. A strong room keeper, knowing that his real depositors
likely would not be demanding their gold, loaned this enterprising
merchant a handful of receipts which were really promises-to-pay in
gold. The truth of it was, the strong room keeper did not have that
much gold in his vaults. I repeat, he was commercializing upon the
credulity of his real depositors and, at the same time, was thereby
actually lending money which did not exist. There was no government
stamp upon his receipts or his promise-to-pay.
This, gentle reader, was the origin of the bankers' racket
which was actually legalized towards the end of the Seventeenth
Century. In 1694 A.D., King William of England passed a law in the
British House of Parliament legalizing this practice which
commercialized the credulity of honest men, by permitting the
privately owned Bank of England to become the legalized
counterfeiters of English money.
Times have not changed, nor has the practice of the banking
fraternity. The Jesse Jameses and the John Dillingers who went
about with sawed-off shot guns relieving citizens either of their
hard-earned wealth or of their receipts for it, have been out-moded
and outstripped by those who, in the process of the evolution of
brigandry, have put aside the black mask in favor of the white
carnation and the shot gun in preference for a purple fountain pen.
Brigandry, legal or illegal, must cease. The credulity of a
civilized people must give way to intelligence. Paying interest on
money not originated by our government, but originated by private
individuals, must terminate. It is either your money or your life.
With a knowledge of the answers given to the following
questions contained with this book, you and I will be in a position
to recapture our sovereign right and bring to an end the social
immorality from which we are suffering
