Take a look at the following two articles.
BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill | via @ Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/energy/oilandgas/7804922/BP-chief-Tony-Hayward-sold-shares-weeks-before-oil-spill.html
Fertile material for conspiracy theorists – yes?
It is a fact that a number of people made a lot of money out of the two disasters. Some conspiracy theorists reason back from the results of the disaster – some people made huge profits and the government hugely extended its surveillance and other powers over citizens lives – to the theory that 9/11 was a false flag operation – an inside job.
So while we are on the subject of conspiracy theories consider this possibility (my contribution to the conspiracy debate). Have you ever visited a gypsy fortune-teller? If you are African or Haitian ever consulted a witch doctor for advice about your future? Ever read a horoscope or consulted Tarot or I-Ching? You will be a rare person if you answer – no – and anyway it's all a con game, hokum, hocus pocus. You don't believe in it. Yet in the middle of the last century both the Soviet and USA invested millions in investigating psychic powers for military and espionage purposes. They have since told us they abandoned the research as it was a failure, and of course if a spy tells you something you can take it as truth.
But what if ….. What if the spies lied. If there existed such things as psychic powers, who do you think in society would make it their business to know about it and corner the market? And what would they do with it? Use it for a good purpose like preventing bad events from happening or minimising the damage? Or studying the future event to work out how to maximise their profits and extend their power?
These days of political correctness and multi-culturalism have been accompanied with extraordinary intolerance and harassment of Christians. Christians, of course, are quite clear in their minds about the spiritual position of psychic powers/magic/witchcraft – take your pick. They also accept that such powers are often the tools of hell because hell is our enemy and the enemy of God's creation. God totally forbids their use. Scriptures don't explain why but I suggest logical deduction provides the answer. The use of any such power can bring about the destruction of our world – our lives – in multiple ways. The destruction of our lives and our world is hell’s objective. If the ability existed to really know the future, the future would be destroyed. If members of our secretive elite had someone/s who could really predict the future – they might not seek to prevent the event from happening, but allow it to run its course while seeking to make as much profit, financially and power-wise, as possible. And they could also help themselves to the proceeds of any lottery going.
Christians have the antidote to such a dangerous experiment. Prayer. Just in case our immoral, greedy, feckless and reckless elite are using such destructive powers, all Christians should pray that God/the gods/divine powers seize/confiscate such powers and take them out of irresponsible government' hands.
Pray that the psychic powers of secret organisations will be taken away by the Divine.
Documentary “The U.S. V.s John Lennon”
The US VS John Lennon Preview and Synopsis With John Lennon Timeline http://beatlesnumber9.com/usvjohnlennon.html via @ beatlesnumber9
“His message is still alive” (Yoko Ono) and perhaps even more relevant in our age of surveillance. John Lennon complained that his phones were tapped and he was subjected to overt surveillance, that is he was being followed and those following him made sure he knew it. The intelligence services admitted he was in their sights. Let us learn from history and be warned by John Lennon’s experience. Just because “they” are watching you, does not mean they will be there to stop a bullet coming your way. If they were watching him, funny they didn’t notice the assassin.
The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.
The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.

“Why should anyone trust a government that has condoned torture, spied on at least 35 world leaders, supports indefinite detention, places bugs in thousands of computers all over the world, kills innocent people with drone attacks, promotes the post office to log mail for law enforcement agencies and arbitrarily authorizes targeted assassinations? Or, for that matter, a president that instituted the Insider Threat Program, which was designed to get government employees to spy on each other and ‘turn themselves and others in for failing to report breaches,’ which includes ‘any unauthorized disclosure of anything, not just classified materials.’” — Professor Henry Giroux
Why should anyone trust a government that kills, maims, tortures, lies, spies, cheats, and treats its own citizens like criminals? For that matter, why should anyone trust a government utterly lacking in transparency, whose actions give rise to more troubling questions than satisfactory answers, and…

“Today, there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home. That’s because technology—specifically the technology employed by the government against the American citizenry—has upped the stakes dramatically so that there’s little we do that is not known by the government.”
