Reflection: In Times like These

True Happiness in Times like These: The Lesson from my Fallen Uncle

by Kevin D. Annett

 Written on the 70th anniversary of his death for another

 

Sub.Lt. Robert I.L. Annett (author’s uncle), front row, third from right (killed in action)

He comprehends his trust, and to the same keeps faithful with a singleness of aim;

And therefore does not stoop, nor lie in wait for wealth, or honours, or for worldly state, or mild concerns of ordinary life;

But who, if he be called upon to face some awful moment to which Heaven has joined great issues, good or bad for human kind, Is happy as a Lover; and attired with sudden brightness, like a Man inspired.

He to whom neither shape of danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; Who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last.

Or if he must fall to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name, finds comfort in himself and in his cause;

And, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws His breath in confidence of Heaven’s applause:

This is the happy Warrior; this is he whom every Man in arms should wish to be.

- “The Happy Warrior” by William Wordsworth, 1770-1850

…….

My father is the only one in the faded photograph who still draws breath.

He was a boy of fifteen when the family photo was taken: the day before his eldest brother Bob left forever to serve as the youngest officer on the doomed Canadian destroyer HMCS Athabaskan.

My younger father stares soberly into the camera, bearing the same troubled look as every other member of his family, save one: nineteen year old Bob himself, whose easy and gentle smile seems untouched by the war that waits to engulf him.

One of the sailors who survived the Germans’ torpedoing of the Athabaskan seven decades ago this evening, on April 29, 1944, described, later, how Bob wore the same confident radiance in the dark and icy waters of the English Channel as men died about him. He recalls how Bob tried leading the ship’s survivors in song to keep their spirits and them alive, as the ship sank and the waters burned with diesel oil.

And in the midst of the carnage, Bob actually gave up his life jacket to a wounded man.

Last week, I held the old Annett family photograph in my hands as my Dad sipped his scotch and remembered his last memory of brother Bob.

“He could have spent his embarkation leave in town, whooping it up, or seeing his fiancee Elaine. But instead he drove out to see me, his kid brother, and he roused me out of bed and wrestled with me and cheered me up. He was that kind of a guy”.

I gazed at the snapshot and said,

“From the looks of all of you, it’s like you all knew he was going to die”

Dad nodded, and replied softly, and unashamedly awed,

“And look at his smile”

To those accustomed to the sluggish death we like to call peace time, the highest concern one can bestow on another is the admonition to “Be safe”. Even my closest friends tell me that all the time, as if safeguarding one’s own life is some kind of bottom line. It wasn’t for my Uncle Bob, nor is it for anyone like him who discovers the secret of life.

The same people who puzzle over how Bob is the only one smiling in that final photograph are the same ones who comment with regret that Bob died because he gave away his life jacket, as if it would have been possible for him to do anything else when faced with another man drowning from his wounds.

The desperate selfishness of “everyday” life spares us the chance to be fully human that is thrust so starkly upon on us by war. And so far too many of us go away sad and troubled by the actions of shining lights like my Uncle Bob, never understanding the drama: like the crowd who encountered Jesus on his cross and saw only bloodshed.

How habitually do we struggle to shore up the unsalvageable – our own mortal life – and refuse to live for that one moment when we find our real purpose in life by giving up our life entirely for what is right and necessary.

Perhaps Bob was so radiant in that final family photograph because he knew that his own special moment was approaching; and knowing his own measure and loving what he saw, he knew he would not fail. As for the others in the picture, how could their sadness be anything but their knowledge that they could not share in Bob’s moment?

We do not live in a time of peace, as much as we pretend we do. The war in which we are all now immersed, like all wars, is rapidly clarifying everything with the same simple truth, and choice, given to my Uncle Bob in the cold waters: If we do not act, others will die.

The particular happiness of true warriors is that they can devote every moment to the service of that deed, which is after all, the essential thing. And for those who shrink back from such necessary action, there is no remedy, and no ultimate happiness.

That is why I can’t understand or give consideration any longer to the multitudes of “concerned” but immobilized people who shrink back from doing what is necessary to save not only the lives of children, but our lands and our liberties, now, amidst this final war being waged against humanity by a global machinery of death.

At desperate moments like this, hope does come to us, but always at a great cost.

What does awaken us are living examples of a true man, or woman, who show that we are not measured by our capacity to “Be safe”, but rather, to be True, regardless of the cost.

That is the secret of Bob’s smile, and of my own: a reflection of the special opportunity granted to every human being, which no tyrant can rob from us, and no cataclysm can undo.

Will you seize that noble chance?

Republic to be Proclaimed in Canada, January 1-4, 2015

A Special Communique from The Provisional Council of The Republic of Kanata (Winnipeg)

October 22, 2014

 

Dear fellow lovers of liberty,

A great awakening is shaking our nation, as more people realize that “Canada” and its criminal sponsors and their laws are null and void. This growing awareness about the need for a Republic of Kanata has swelled our membership to over three hundred men and women in every region of “Canada”. And to accommodate and prepare these members and their delegates, our Council has had to move the date of the Republic’s founding Constitutional Convention in Winnipeg to January 1-4, 2015.

Pre-Convention material will be mailed to all of you before then, including copies of the new draft Proclamation of Independence, and Kanata’s proposed Constitution.

Our new Republic is as strong and real as each of us make it. That’s why local organizing committees for the Republic are active in the five main regions of “Canada”, uniting, educating and mobilizing the people to take back and reclaim their country within the ranks of the Republican movement.

These committees are based in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. If you have not been connected with your local Republic organizers yet, please notify us immediately at republicofkanata@gmail.com . Also watch our website at www.republicofkanata.com .

Our work now focuses on educating people about our vision and principles, and launching direct actions to reclaim our land and its laws. In this regard, a small handbook and youtube posting is being prepared, entitled “Five Ways you Can Build the Republic of Kanata”. These ways include taking the Public Oath to the Republic, issuing Stand Down or Revocation Orders to all “crown” officials, refusing to pay taxes to the criminal state known as Canada, and organizing public Reclamations of so called “crown land” that has been stolen from the people.

As we take back our country and create working alternatives to the collapsing status quo, many more people will join us. The point is to start the process, now.

Monthly updates will follow. Spread the word, and Long live the Republic!

Possible ITCCS source in Ottawa police dies suddenly after “incident”: “Ndrangheta may be clearing house” – Brussels

Ottawa:

Staff Sergeant Kal Ghadban, head of the human trafficking unit of the Ottawa police and a possible supporter of the recent ITCCS “take down” of a Ninth Circle cult ritual in Montreal, died suddenly last Sunday at the Elgin street police station. Ottawa police are claiming he took his own life after suffering “serious injuries” following an “incident”, but have released no evidence of the circumstances around his death.

Ghadban was a married man with three children, with no history of depression or mental illness. He was rated by senior Ottawa police as an “impeccable and trustworthy policeman”.

The ITCCS central office has confirmed today that members of the Ottawa police did cooperate with their counterparts in Montreal in providing intelligence and logistical support to the ITCCS Direct Action “Alpha Unit” on August 15, when the Unit disrupted a planned ritual sacrifice by the catholic Ninth Circle cult at a wealthy home in Outremount.
“We are not free at this time to confirm whether Sergeant Ghadban was a direct part of our effort but it is safe to say that he knew of our actions and did nothing to impede them” said the Commander of the Alpha team today from Brussels.

“Personally, I think Ghadban’s death was a killing and it proves that Ndrangheta may be clearing house.”

The criminal syndicate Ndrangheta, based in Italy and tied closely to the Vatican, provides children for sacrificial rituals and human trafficking networks across the world. It has been named in a recent common law court case brought by the ITCCS against Pope Francis and other convicted felons.

The ITCCS central office is conducting a thorough investigation of Sergeant Ghadban’s death and will be issuing its own report, as part of the ongoing shut down of child trafficking and sacrificial murder.

European Police join ITCCS take down of Ndrangheta, Vatican, Cargill and other child killers

A Breaking Interview with Kevin Annett, September 27, 2014:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ_JChovG9M&feature=youtu.be

VANCOUVER, BC – In an Exopolitics TV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett, Field Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) discussed European police raids this week that freed thirty children from traffickers. The raids were based in part on evidence provided by ITCCS and its recent common law court cases.

Police in at least three European nations are now working directly with the ITCCS to track worldwide child trafficking networks that feed children directly into Ninth circle Satanic sacrifices by Popes and Vatican officials, the British, Dutch and Belgian monarchies and high government officials, and Satanic corporations such as Cargill Corporation, and to make further arrests.

Kevin Annett also gave updates about the Vatican’s protection of Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, a Ninth Circle cult participant who has been accused of sexually abusing boys he met on the street while serving in the Dominican Republic.

Republic of Kanata and Republic of England

Kevin Annett announced new dates for the the Republic of Kanata convention scheduled for January 1-4, 2015 in Winnipeg, and the Republic of England Convention, scheduled for May 1, 2015 in London.

European police arrest more than 1000 criminals using ITCCS evidence of Ndrangheta and catholic child trafficking

Brussels:

The ITCCS central office has confirmed today that some of the police raids that have freed thirty children from traffickers were based on evidence provided by ITCCS and its recent common law court cases. Police in at least three European nations are now working directly with the ITCCS to track child trafficking networks and make further arrests. A complete report will be issued later this week.

New Attacks and other consequences of our exposure of child murder by European elites

A Breaking Update from ITCCS Central: September 15, 2014
Brussels:

Our global network is advised that some of our key front line workers are facing new threats and attacks this week following our publicizing of the exclusive testimony of Anne Marie van Blijenburgh, regarding child sacrificial practices of European royalty and other elites. (see www.itccs.org, September 10)

Two of our Belgian researchers were picked up and interrogated on September 11 by the police, and detained without charges for over a day. They were repeatedly asked by the police for information about the identity of our Tribunal officers and the movements of our North American Field Secretary Kevin Annett.

Kevin Annett himself is now under close protection after experiencing what appears to be an attempted assassination of him in Canada that occurred last Saturday, September 13. The car he was using had its brake lines cut and he narrowly avoided a major, lethal accident on a highway in British Columbia.

This attack confirms a report we received last month that an assassination order against Kevin has been issued by Ndrangheta, the criminal syndicate named in our postings that provides children for the Ninth Circle catholic sacrificial rituals.

Kevin and our Office regret the cancellation of his scheduled meetings with some of our common law and Republic chapters in Canada resulting from this recent attack. We assure all of our groups that Kevin will resume his meetings with all of you during the coming fortnight, as he will with the Irish, German, British and other chapters that are awaiting Kevin’s scheduled arrival in Europe in early October.

These attacks are simply more proof of the success we are having in exposing child killers in high places. Stay tuned for more updates.

Transcript of Anne Marie van Blijenburgh’s testimony about child murders in Belgium

Issued by The International Common Law Court of Justice, Brussels

Copyright ITCCS 2014. All rights reserved.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbhMfZRhsXw&feature=youtu.be

My name is Anne Marie van Blijenburgh. I have been married for twenty four years to Kees van Korlaar. Together with his three brothers, Kees van Korlaar forms a criminal organization known as the Octopus Syndicate (ed. Note: This is a slang term in Holland for Ndrangheta, the modern Italian -based Mafia). They have worked from 1960 on to today. By order of Queen Beatrix they have organized the murder, torture, rape and killing of children in a public setting. They organized that through youth detention centers in the Netherlands.

 The youth detention centers were told by the criminals that they were asking for the Dutch court for children who could work for the Dutch Queen for a certain period. The detention centers were very happy, they thought that Queen Beatrix was a very social person, and they gladly volunteered in giving files of certain children to the criminals. When they wanted to verify what the criminals told them, they were given a name and a phone number of a high ranking officer in the court of Queen Beatrix, and that high ranking officer would tell them that indeed the criminals were seeking children to work for a certain period at the Dutch court.

 After receiving files of approximately three children every time, the criminals selected a child that had no relative or family. They told the youth detention center that those are the ones we want, the youth detention center would give clothes to the child and put the child on the train to Zwolle. In Zwolle, the criminals fetched the child from the station and brought it to a building that was equipped like a hotel but was not working as a hotel, although there were people in the lobby as if the hotel was working. The child was put on a table and was given something to drink and with that drink the child was drugged. Beside that hotel was a building where the performance took place.

In that building there were people were sitting down and at a certain moment the child was brought into that building by the criminals, was tortured, raped and brutally murdered in front of those people.

The audience was around Prince Johann Friso, the second son of Queen Beatrix. I was told that Johann Friso was quite insane and had an unhealthy interest in young children and had a psychiatrist with him every day of his life. That psychiatrist’s name was Guus Pareau Dumont. The criminals organized those killings in accordance with Queen Beatrix, she paid for the killings. And the criminals asked Johann Friso to bring his relatives and friends with him, so the whole building was filled with very important people from the Netherlands: ministers, high ranking officers and all kinds of people that the criminals could photograph so they could blackmail those people and get criminal advantages from that.

 Question: Could you name some of the people who were present?

 The people who I recognized there were Prince Johann Friso, his psychiatrist Guus Pareau Dumont , I recognized Johann’s wife Mabel Wisse Smit, she was there with an old man, I think it was George Soros, I recognized a Herr Donner, a former minister of the law department, the vice roy of the Netherlands, I recognized Ernst Hirsch Ballin, a very important former Minister of Justice, I recognized a Mr. van den Emster, he was for years the head of all judges in the Netherlands, I recognized Dick Berlijn, he’s a former head of the military department in the Netherlands. I recognized a very important journalist. I recognized Carla Eradus, the wife of Friso’s psychiatrist Guus Pareau Dumont, Carla is the President of the Court in Amsterdam, a judge. I recognized Mark Rutte, he’s at this moment the President of the Netherlands. I recognized Geert Wilders, he is at this moment the head of the political party PVV and head of the Dutch Parliament.

 There were about fifty people every time I was taken there. I have been taken there three times. I have seen every time that they killed a child, I have seen two boys killed and one girl killed. I presume they were children from the Netherlands, I presume they came from detention centers and were recruited in the way I have told.

Question: You said that officials at the detention center thought that the children had been eaten?

I asked a journalist of the paper De Telegraff in 2005 or 2006 to look that up for me and to publish in the newspaper what was happening. The journalist told me he had checked my story with all the youth detention centers in the Netherlands and had spoken to people who had indeed given those files to the criminals and they thought that the children they put on the train were going to be solicited to work in the court of Queen Beatrix. And some of those detention center people told the journalist that they thought that Queen Beatrix was eating those children up because they were putting them on the train to Zwolle and they never saw those children again or ever heard about them anymore.

 Question: Do you know what happened to the remains of the children who died, where they were buried or what they did with them?

 Yes unfortunately I know, yes. They were first thrown in a container behind the building where they were murdered, a cooling container. After certain performances the container was brought to Belgium where they had a piece of land where they put the children in a hole.

 Question: What is the name of the place in Belgium, do you know?

 I must look it up, I found it but I must look it up.

Question: What is it that you’d like to see happen about all of this?

 I want to see those criminals forever locked up.

Question: You haven’t received any help in the Netherlands, you said.

Not one thing, no, it’s terrible, from 2004 to today. I have spoken with every policeman I could find, and every law official, I’ve talked to INTERPOL about this, I’ve been to court to try to get a the prosecutor to convict this and investigate the matter. The court told me it wasn’t my problem, it was a problem of society, and the court didn’t want to give an order to the prosecutor to investigate. I have done literally everything to clear this up. I have the idea that everything is stopped because Queen Beatrix is involved and the Dutch court is involved. And every time somebody wants to investigate they slap him on the shoulders and say don’t do that because Queen Beatrix doesn’t want it.

Question: Are you willing to give this testimony in another court, say a Common Law Court?

Yes. I have no objection about that. I am very very angry, if you’ve seen what I’ve seen, it always stay with me. I can’t put it aside because it’s one of the cruelest things I have seen, it’s horrible, it’s really horrible. The idiots. One time when I was going back to my home, my husband who took me there, he drugged and he let me see that and he brought me back to my home a hundred kilometers away. And during that ride I suddenly came to my senses, I suddenly discovered that it was a child that I had seen killed. I burst out into tears. My husband was driving and he put his arm to me and he said, “Don’t bother, they’re children of a minor family, they’re orphans, they’re just trash, it doesn’t matter they were killed.” It’s horrible. I can’t describe it. It’s horrible those people were sitting there and looking and not doing anything.

Question: And your husband is still alive.

He’s still alive and he’s still killing people. If you just think how many people since 2004 have been killed, it’s been ten years, they kill perhaps ten or twenty people a year if not more, it’s horrible. I have shown the police four places in the Netherlands they use as grave yards for people they killed. Never, never, has any policeman ever taken the trouble to look.

Question: Can you name those four places?

Yes I can name them, I can show them, but I will put them to you by email. But the criminals know I have told the police, they’ve had every opportunity to let the bodies disappear, I know two places where it is difficult for them to disappear …  But normally in the Netherlands when you find a body in a house with blood, the police go with 20 or 30 people to investigate. But when I say to the police I know four places in the Netherlands they use as a graveyard, and every graveyard perhaps 20 or 50 perhaps 100 bodies are buried there, nobody is looking, nobody goes to those places.

Question: Can you tell us your name please and the date today?

Today is the fifth of June 2014 and my name is Anne Marie van Blijenburgh.

ITCCS News Flash: Highest catholic official in Ireland resigns after public exposure

Irish Cardinal Sean Brady to step down

Dublin, September 9, 2014: Cardinal Sean Brady offered his resignation today after it was recently revealed that he forced an 11 year old rape victim to sign a statement denying that he was molested and assaulted by catholic priests. This exposure of Brady happened recently on Sean Maguire’s blog radio program featuring ITCCS spokesman Kevin Annett and eyewitnesses to Brady’s action.

In related news, the ITCCS and its common law courts are convening a public inquiry this month into Cardinal Brady’s attempted cover up of the mass killing of newborn babies at a catholic home in Tuam, Ireland. The remains of over 800 babies were discovered months ago in a cistern connected to the catholic home. Stay tuned for updates at www.itccs.org .

 

Update interview: British Crown stopped in their effort to arrest Kevin Annett; new ITCCS offensive against corporate backers of child trafficking

VIDEO-Kevin Annett: British Crown & Ireland attempt arrest to stop ITCCS action on 800 sacrificed babies, and more

VANCOUVER, BC , August 30, 2014 –

In an ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Kevin Annett stated today that the British Crown issued an extradition order to the Government of Ireland to arrest him while he was to have been in Ireland working on the ITCCS investigation of the 800 babies ritually sacrificed and murdered at Tuam, Ireland. This extradition was in fact motivated to stop the ITCCS action to prosecute guilty parties in the Tuam baby sacrifices, including the reigning Cardinal of Ireland, Sean Brady, and to prevent further ITCCS investigation and enforcement of its verdicts against Popes Francis Bergoglio and Benedict Ratzinger for Ninth Circle Satanic child sacrifice.

Kevin Annett, who plans to return to Brussels and Germany for further ITCCS operations, stated that it appears that the planned arrest actions have now actually strengthened ITCCS operations world wide, with the appointment of Field Secretaries in Western Europe, Australia and Asia, and North America, and a world-wide membership of 800 involved in Common Law Court and Common Law Sheriff Enforcement and Investigative activities.

ITCCS Actions against Satanic Corporate Sector

Kevin Annett discussed ITCCS actions that are now planned against corporate defendants that were implicated in the disruption of an August 15, 2014 planned Satanic sacrifice in Montreal by ITCCS Direct Action Units. These defendants include Cargill Corporation, where Satanic rituals has been held in corporate headquarters according to participants who have come forward. Cargill is “is now the largest privately held corporation in the United States in terms of revenue.

Republic of Kanata

Kevin Annett also discussed the Republic of Kanata convention in Saskatchewan, Oct. 27 – 31, 2014.
