Westminster MP and media asset Ann Widdecombe slams alternative media

 

Ann Widdecombe

Tory grandee Ann Widdecombe has slammed conspiracy theorists in her weekly Daily Express column.

With the title- ‘Take it from me, conspiracy theorists will never change their mind,’ the overweight spinster ridicules those of us who believe that Dr David Kelly was murdered by secret forces, that Lady Diana was killed on the orders of the Royal Family and that Neil Armstrong ever walked on the moon.

Specifically targeting Grand-dad Chris Spivey, who having been convicted of harassing the family of Lee Rigby, Widdecombe writes:

Christopher Spivey is a conspiracy theorist who has made the lives of Lee Rigby’s family hell. He believes, without any foundation, that the murder was a plot to whip up anti-Islamic feeling. He even claimed that the soldier never existed and his harassment of the relatives landed him in court.

The exasperated judge rightly said that nothing would ever convince Spivey that he was wrong. Every MP knows the type: the constituent who in the teeth of evidence will insist there is a conspiracy. I had one who believed I was a Freemason conspiring with the police to persecute her!”

    Trouble is, these people have access to millions. Why don’t they invite Spivey accompanied by, lets say Ken O’Keef, to assist onto a mainstream live TV primetime show to discuss these matters? Answers on a postcard.

      Yes ian, why don’t they invite Chris Spivey indeed! Given that Chris has not been given any right of defence or reply whatsoever in Court, Widdecombe is in a perfect position to perpetuate and reinforce ‘their’ lies to the braindead people who kept her in Strictly Come Dancing
      every week …. jeez, if it wasn’t so serious an issue it’d be laughable. Knowing, as so many people do now, the depth and scale of deception that has taken place regarding Chris, it’s very hard to stomach. Shame on her ….

    They’re getting desperate wheeling old hags like widdecombe out to tow the line and help formulate the ‘reality’ they want to push.

    I doubt anyone takes her seriously. They’ve over used the term conspiracy theory. It will back fire.

    Question. Does widdecombe genuinely believe the tripe she has penned in the express?

    • ian says:

      I doubt that she believes it ferryt, a lot of sheep will though. I hope you’re right.

    • dkblue says:

      I like your view that overusing the term conspiracy theory will backfire – it makes me think of how telling a child he must not look in the shed out back only guarantees he will look in that shed!
      There are small rays of hope then…

        Interesting comments by Wilson on trance states, please read whole article if you get time dkblue
        7. THE STANDARD HYPNOTIC TRANCE

        This is entirely different from all the states described above. I never suggest a person submit to hypnosis! Standard hypnosis is a yin method, and not a good one, in most cases. It is particularly dangerous for young women, who can easily be raped and even killed under hypnosis.

        No hypnotherapist wants to talk about this, but it is easy for a hypnosis specialist to induce a state in which a young woman agrees to take off her clothes and to have sex with anyone the hypnotist decides. Then they often kill the girl to get rid of the evidence. Alternatively, they erase the memory of the entire event in the girl, and she goes home thinking that nothing unusual happened at all. This may sound amazing, but it is easy for some hypnotists to do.

        Standard hypnosis can induce a trance state in which healing occurs. This is sometimes called hypnotic regression. However, most of the time, with hypnosis, no healing occurs at all, and in fact, the hypnotist plants new suggestions in the person that just add to the person’s confusion and trauma. These are called post hypnotic suggestions. They are used therapeutically to help people quit smoking, quit drinking alcohol, or other things.

        This is not healing nearly at the depth that occurs when one follows a nutritional balancing program and goes into a trance state spontaneously in order to process and heal traumas faster. In the latter, the body requires a trance state, or partial trance state, in order to clear a particular trauma.

        With nutritional balancing science, the powerful healing healing intent can force or cause whatever state of consciousness is needed to retrace and process traumas.

        However, during regular hypnosis, the conscious mind is excused or removed, and the hypnotist takes over the mind of the subject and does anything he or she wants with the person. He or she can create an assassin, for example, or a sex toy, or an idiot, or anything the hypnotist may want or desire to do. Unlike nutritional balancing, the hypnotist is in charge. With nutritional balancing trances, no man or woman is in charge of you. You are in charge, in fact.

        Regular hypnosis is really a subtle type of attack on the person. A very crude analogy is brain surgery. Regular hypnosis is like lying on an operating table and allowing someone to enter your brain and play with it. It is an amazing thing, but quite dangerous. While this method can be used for good, which is called hypnotic regression, it can also easily be used for evil. So if you are smart, never, ever submit to hypnosis!

        8. TRANCE STATES DUE TO SOME TYPES OF MEDITATIONS

        This is another very dangerous area. Such meditations go by many names, including Transcendental Meditation or TM, Orgasmic Meditation, visualizations, imagery, self-hypnosis, relaxation exercises, some affirmations, breathing exercises, mantra meditations, and others.

        These are quite common in the West and in the East. They are taught in books, on the internet, in some yoga classes, on videos and often taught by Eastern-style gurus and “masters”. They can also be taught in some religions. Christian people are very skeptical about meditation for this reason, and I agree with them wholeheartedly.

        These exercises, in all cases, move energy upward from the feet or hands or somewhere else, into the head. This is always very dangerous. What occurs with these exercises is that part of the consciousness actually leaves the body. This is very relaxing for people. So people learn to stay in this type of trance state. It can be addictive. Make no mistake about it.

        It feels so good it is like a drug. It is also like a drug in that the more one does it, the less able one is to return to regular life and deal with one’s problems. So one stays in the so-called meditative or trance state more and more. Eventually, one cannot or will not come back. The result can be a disaster. The person can have a mental breakdown when they are forced to come back to earth, so to speak, to eat or use the toilet. They are in a crisis, in other words, and they may commit suicide. This is quite common in some religious communities, some cults, and in some religious settings and monasteries where these techniques are taught.

        This type of trance inducement is relaxing because one “spaces out”. However, it also easily becomes an attack on the body and brain because anything that dims one’s awareness and consciousness is really an attack. The Pushing Down mental exercise suggested on this website does the exact opposite.

        Mantra exercises, relaxation, imagery and self-hypnosis, while relaxing, are generally used by all sorts of hucksters to control people, in fact. The most famous was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who died fairly recently. He taught millions to do TM or transcendental meditation. It is a simple mantra meditation that is relaxing, and reduces blood pressure. However, it also dims the consciousness, and is therefore always dangerous and to be avoided. I am sorry to have to say this, as some of my friends use this method. I would avoid it strictly, however.

        9. PRAYER TO INDUCE A TRANCE STATE

        Some people go into a trance state when they pray to God or to the angels, or to Allah, or to the holy spirit, holy ghost, or to the Grandfathers in the native American tradition. In fact, repeating any prayer or affirmation can do this easily. It is really a form of mantra meditation. However, it is much safer than most meditations because it is directed to God or the Holy Spirit.

        In contrast, the mantra meditations used by the hucksters are generally senseless words that are designed to relax the mind because they have no meaning. This is fine, but they also can open the mind to entry by entities, or by a hypnotist, or by others. Therefore, they are far more dangerous and to be avoided.

        Prayer, by the way, is very safe, especially when done properly. For much more on prayer, please read Prayer on this website.

    Conspiracies are committed all the time in the U.S., and many of the conspirators are caught and found guilty by American courts. Remember, Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was a conspiracy theory.

    Indeed, conspiracy is a very well-recognized crime in American law, taught to every first-year law school student as part of their basic curriculum.

    Obama’s Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein, wrote:

    Of course some conspiracy theories, under our definition, have turned out to be true.

    A BBC documentary shows that:
    There was “a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen . . . . The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression”

    Moreover, “the tycoons told General Butler the American people would accept the new government because they controlled all the newspapers.” Have you ever heard of this conspiracy before? It was certainly a very large one. And if the conspirators controlled the newspapers then, how much worse is it today with media consolidation?

  4. Dogman says:

    Summarizing the tactics which the 1967 CIA dispatch recommended:

    Claim that it would be impossible for so many people would keep quiet about such a big conspiracy
    Have people friendly to the CIA attack the claims, and point back to “official” reports
    Claim that eyewitness testimony is unreliable
    Claim that this is all old news, as “no significant new evidence has emerged”
    Ignore conspiracy claims unless discussion about them is already too active
    Claim that it’s irresponsible to speculate
    Accuse theorists of being wedded to and infatuated with their theories
    Accuse theorists of being politically motivated
    Accuse theorists of having financial interests in promoting conspiracy theories
    In other words, the CIA’s clandestine services unit created the arguments for attacking conspiracy theories as unreliable in the 1960s as part of its psychological warfare operations.

    They’re on thin ice and they know it!
