Thinking Outside the Box:
Populist Revolt, Female Prime Minister, Referendum,
Modern Media Initiative...Global Activism?

Is Burning by Iris Erlingsdottir, Huffington
Post, 29 Jan 2009 explains how protest reached the boiling
point in early 2009:
are calling on the world to help us get rid of this corrupt
government," Sturla Jonsson, one of protesters said in a midnight
phone call from downtown Reykjavik where a crowd of about
2,000 still surrounded the Althingi House, in front of which
a bonfire continued to burn. The protesters pounded drums
and other instruments, shouted slogans against the government
and parliament and threw eggs and food items, even old shoes
at the house of parliament. The protest was nowhere close
to slowing down despite it being close to midnight. The parliament
postponed meeting until tomorrow afternoon, but protesters,
whom police fought all day with teargas, pepper spray, and
clubs, vowed to stay downtown all night, "and as long as we
have to" Jonsson said. "And I want to tell you that the people
gathered here are not "activists" or "militants," he added,
"they are just ordinary adults of all ages."
Turns Hard Left," 2 Feb 2009, professor Hannes
H. Gissurarson voiced concern that this populist revolt could
become too reactionary:
On Sunday a new minority government took over, led by the
Social Democrats and the Left Greens, the unrepentant heirs
to the Icelandic Communist Party. The main task of the new
government, led by Social Democratic Prime Minister Johanna
Sigurdardottir, will be to dissolve parliament and prepare
for new elections in April. An old-fashioned Social Democrat
of the Swedish ilk, with little sympathy for the business
community, Ms. Sigurdardottir is seen as untainted by Iceland’s
public can become "too reactionary" if it resorts
to political options developed behind the scenes as "controlled
opposition" by clever enemies. This is called the "problem-reaction-solution"
paradigm where oligarchs use their control over media and political
funding to make sure that no leading factions are capable of
mounting any serious challenge, even though they appear to compete
with each other on the surface.
one example, up until widespread use of the Internet, many important
political topics were completely censored from open discussion
between "left" and "right" factions in America.
These topics included the need to audit the privately owned
Federal Reserve Banking System, the JFK assassination and Oklahoma
City as inside jobs, Zionist control of major media, and America's
steadily declining white populations in the face of tidal waves
of Third World immigration.
a second example, in regard to the ideological matrix chart
that I provide in Part
2, Act I, the Zionist oligarchy wants to keep the political
debate fenced in between the "environmental top down"
or "neo-Jacobin" area and the "environmental
bottom up" or "anarcho libetarian" camp. They
also want the public to believe that any "genetic"
ideologies that might call attention to their innate "Neanderthal"
characteristics automatically imply some kind of extremely dangerous
"genetic top down" or "Nazi" approach. The
last thing they want is a "genetic bottom up" paleoconservative
mass movement that can successfully preach limited government,
Jeffersonian principles, preservation of civil liberties, ethnic
and racial loyalty, and successful public defense against Jewish
criminal totalitarian psychopathology (as outlined in my online
vs. Parasitism" article).
a third example, false flag attacks are designed to stampede
the public into accepting a police state, when in fact Al-Qaeda
and other terrorists are largely a Mossad-CIA invention. Furthermore,
Osama Bin Laden has very likely been dead since December 2001.

her 9 March 2010 interview with Alex Jones, Birgitta Jonsdottir
talked about how she has met Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz.
She thinks he may have important insights into the IMF and other
important issues confronting Iceland.
may be true, but it could also be true that Dr. Stiglitz serves
as "limited hangout" and "controlled opposition."
He may fail to provide Icelanders with a full smorgasbord of
nationalist analysis or options. He may resemble certain Jewish
intellectuals who wormed their way into Harvard's Kennedy School
in the early 1990's, who provided intellectual cover for Zionist
kleptocrats who looted Russia during Yeltsin's "privatizations."
Madsen warns about Stigliz's connections in the following report:
26-28, 2010 -- Wikileaks and Iceland media law are stalking
horses for Soros"
look at this, Obama's OMB director Peter Orszag (the name
is Jewish from Hungarian-Romanian Transylvania like fellow
vampire Soros) and his connection to Iceland: "In 1998, after
serving in the Clinton administration, Orszag co-founded an
economic consulting group company with his brother and Joseph
Stiglitz called Sebago Associates, where he served as president
through 2007. The firm's clients have included the World Bank,
the Nordic Council of Ministers, and most notably, the Central
Bank of Iceland. The once prosperous economy of Iceland has
been devastated by the current economic crisis, which its
citizens say was carried out by a gang of financial criminals
who followed disastrous policies and advice - provided by
Peter Orszag and Company.
his classic work By
Way of Deception, former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky
cites numerous instances where Mossad routinely infiltrates
and plays all sides of any conflict, for example by simultaneously
arming both Christians and Muslims in Lebanon and then playing
them off against each other. The Mossad initially helped fund
Hamas as a religious alternative to the secular PLO, on the
theory that Arab secular nationalism is a more dangerous adversary
to Zionism than Islamic fundamentalism. Ironically, even the
PLO may have received major Mossad-CIA support as "controlled
opposition" (source: Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson reported
in his April 15, 2010 Orthodox
Nationalist show "Venezuela and Syria against the NWO"
that General Hafez
al-Assad, President of Syria said that the PLO had received
Mossad-CIA support as "controlled opposition.")
By Way of Deception, Ostrovsky cites a particularly
outrageous case where both Sri Lanken rebels and government
forces received military training on an Israeli base at the
same time. Due to a scheduling error, they happened to pass
each other while running in formation. Fortunately for the Israelis,
these opposing forces did not recognize each other.
good rule of thumb to uncover such manipulation in Iceland would
be to ask what kind of opposition groups on either the "left"
or "right" permit Zionists and other aliens to continue
building their influence and gobbling up control from behind
Will Not Cure Greed and Stupidity" by Iris Erlingsdottir,
Huffington Post, Feb 8, 2009, provides another example
of a possible controlled opposition "problem-reaction-solution"
paradigm. Icelanders voted in a record new percentage of women
in their Parliament --over 30%, including an
openly lesbian Prime Minister. Ms. Erlingsdottir explained
why a leftist reaction that focuses on gender issues is not
sufficient to resolve Iceland's problems:
voluminous evidence to the contrary, men do not hold a monopoly
on greed, aggression and stupidity.

Sigurdardottir. Photo credit: Stjornarrad.is
Iceland, the gang of thirty or so that made the decisions
leading that country's steep rise and precipitous fall were,
in fact, mainly male. The recent appointment of Johanna Sigurdardottir
as Iceland's first female Prime Minister and the world first
lesbian leader would seem to signal an end of an age of male
aggression. It is easy to explain away the 2009
uprising of the Icelandic people as the end of the age
of testosterone, or to say that the banking crisis would
never have happened if
women had been in charge, but the reality is much more
is the culture of the elite and greed, not the gender of its
leaders, that has led us into the current economic catastrophe.
This is a culture that does not believe that the good of the
many outweighs the good of the few. It is instead a culture
that believed - and still does - that the greed of the individual
market participants would form some sort of invisible hand
that would magically regulate the markets better than any
legislative or regulatory body could....
of the elite-greed club are not bound to the rest of us by
this sense of community. They are Icelanders only by accident
of birth and feel no existential obligation to our nation.
They were willing to sacrifice the nation's wealth to enrich
themselves, but they will not sacrifice their wealth to save
their countrymen. They belong to a transnational class of
plutocrats, and have forfeited their right to participate
in our attempts to remedy the harms they have wrought on our
a woman Prime Minister and an equal number of male and female
cabinet ministers is all good. But any positive changes Johanna
and her female colleagues will bring about will be because
they are in tune with the values of society at large, rather
than the values of the current ruling elite. Not because they
are women, but because they are Icelanders.
article makes many important points that I will return to later
in my nationalist analysis section. Suffice to say for now that
there are many social decisions that require sacrifice in the
short run in order to achieve a greater good for everyone in
the long run. Generally speaking, the more the elite of a society
feels a common bond with the rest of society --to include on
a religious and ethnic level as well as on a short term economic
or ideological level -- the more likely it is that it will be
willing to make sacrifices for the long term common good rather
than exploit the underlying society for its own immediate gain.
most dramatic examples of solidarity across society often take
place in time of war, when members of the elite may be on the
front lines undergoing the same privations and taking the same
or greater risks to their own lives as the commoners who make
up most of the soldiery. Europe's
Biggest Financial Swindle Since World War II by
Iris Erlingsdottir, Huffington Post, 16 June 2009,
reports one of the most effective forms of populist political
action of our era that transcends gender politics:
the Internet has revolutionized Iceland more profoundly than
perhaps any other nation. A new Facebook page protesting the
government's agreement to pay British and Dutch investors
for losses suffered by one of the banks has grown in little
over two weeks to include over 31,000 members--over 10% of
the entire population (imagine 30 million protesters in America).
Dozens of dedicated bloggers (my favorite, Lára Hanna,
unfortunately not in English) put together an alternative
narrative from the disparate pieces of information they learn
from friends and family.
that day, around 1,500 Icelanders will gather in a sports
arena in Reykjavík to brainstorm and plan a future
vision for our country, and subsequently lay the foundation
for the implementation of that vision. The event is dubbed
-- National Assembly in English -- and it is believed to be
the very first time that a statistically-significant portion
of a single nation gathers in one place to attempt to reach
an agreement on collective values and future vision for their
came something even more unique, namely "The Referendum
that shook the world" of 6 March 2010. In her 9
March interview with Alex Jones, Birgitta Jonsdottir explained
how popular pressure moved the President of Iceland, Olafur
Grimsson, to call for a national referendum, and how this displeased
globalists such as "The Paris Club":
Birgitta: ...It actually surprised me that
the President of Iceland decided to listen to the nation,
but there was a huge petition. More than 60,000 Icelanders
called on him to allow us to have this national referendum.
And it was interesting. I had some, there was actually some
documents leaked from the U.S. embassy in Iceland, Rejkavik
Iceland, and I found it on Wikileaks.org.
And it was interesting how the British and the U.S. Treasury
were very much interested in doing everything in their power
to stop the national referendum. And then the same thing applied
to, I got some information that I don't know if you are familiar
with the Paris talk. But they were very keen on stopping this
national referendum. Because especially in Europe they are
very much afraid that like Greece and Ireland the people there
will demand to have a national referendum about the situation
in their country. Jones: Oh this is big. This is huge. I mean
the magnitude of this, sending the message that this is fraud,
we are not paying it. We are about to go to break, but start
telling us about the documents and the Paris Club and how
the banks don't like what has happened in Iceland. Birgitta: The Paris Club is a very interesting
club. It is sort of a secret club run out of Paris with some
of the most powerful nations in the world. They determine
the interest rates on nations that have a debt moratorium.
Apparently it is the case of Iceland that that national referendum
has been discussed in that club. I did a research trying to
figure out who was is in the club, who attended the meetings,
and it is impossible to find any information, at least on
the Internet. So I will actually call on if anybody who listens
to this who has any information about the Paris Club please
provide me with that information.
her 9 March 2010 Alex Jones interview Birgitta claimed that
after making their defiant gesture to globalist bankers, the
Icelandic people came into a pleasant surprise. Now the bankers
were backing off and conceding that maybe Icelanders did not
owe so much money after all. Birgitta suspected something far
more sinister may be involved with the IMF than merely a bank
Birgitta: ...Let us not forget that the
bank in question actually has a sustainable amount of assets
that can be recovered. And so far what the British and Dutch
can claim in it will actually be recovered by at least 88%. Jones: Yes, that was in the Times
of London. They claimed that you all owed them $20,000+ every
individual and they had to take over all your infrastructure.
Now they go, "Guess what, we don't even need that money.
We already had the assets. So it was a giant --just like the
banks here that have robbed us are already recording record
profits, the same banks that are trying to rob you. I mean
that is such a key point that it turns out that they have
the assets to begin with. Birgitta: Yes, and the thing is that they
actually decided that Darling, the financial minister of the
UK, he decided to move money within his own ministry and then
earmark some of it, 700 billion Icelandic to the Icelandic
nation, and then expect us to pay full interest, really high
interest on that. I mean it is a brilliant scheme, but we
will not do it. Jones: Exactly, you are wise to it. Americans
should get wise as well. The collapse of Iceland was a private
matter. "Why did they want the people to pay it?"
is a question from resistarchipelago. Birgitta: Well, I mean in general, like every
time you look at how the IMF functions, I was actually reading
a secret document leaked to Wikileaks. It was a brilliant
source if you want to sort of dig deeper into the real conspiracies
of our world. And it was a manual from the military sector
in the U.S. talking about unconventional warfare. And in the
unconventional warfare, the section about financial warfare,
they talk about the IMF as one of their choice weapons. So,
you know, I encourage people to study how the IMF functions. Jones: Exactly. It is a private consortium
for blowing out countries. And the banks are attacking America.
This is a criminal group....
The Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, Wikileaks, and
other anti-censorship efforts have tremendous potential to combat
high level criminality. Conversely, a failure to aggressively
assert free speech rights in Iceland, America, and elsewhere
around the world may result in global Internet censorship.

Birgitta: ....there are very many very exciting
things happening in Iceland. We just spoke for a proposal
which was called the Icelandic Media Modern Initiative which
has gained worldwide attention. We were suggesting that Iceland
will take the lead on freedom of speech, freedom of information,
and freedom of expression, by actually modernizing and pulling
together the best legislation to protect sources, journalists,
whistle-blowers, publishers and ISP hosts in order to get
that information out to the general public. Jones: In fact I have the article right here.
Icelandic Modern Media Initiative saying the West is moving,
and Europe, England, the U.S., and Canada and Australia to
censor the Internet. To shut down free speech. Wired Magazine
last week had the headline "Cyber Security: The End of
the Open Internet" [Editor's Note: This probably pertains
to the article: "Cyberwar
Hype Intended to Destroy the Open Internet" by Ryan
Singel, Wired.com, March 1, 2010] this is really
happening, and so now you guys are moving to say, "Look,
we will allow Wikileaks to be here. We will allow independent
journalism. We want people to move here, and come here, and
put their servers here really as an information revolution."
The people are finding the power they have to say no to the
banks, and this is really growing. Birgitta: Yes, and I really hope that it,
for some reason Icelanders are right now a bit shy about placing
themselves as doing anything that would be considered the
best --. they don't want to fall in the same pit, so I guess
the most skeptical people about this proposal are Icelanders.
We however managed to get all the parties in Iceland on this,
and three party chair leaders, so I am quite optimistic that
we can pass this through the Parliament. We are basically
proposing or tasking the government to take on this challenge,
because it requires a lot of legislative changes. But you
know in general, it has been overwhelming, the support we
have got from all over the world. Jones: And now Greece and Spain and countless
others are going to try to follow your example.This is a true
revolution against the global banking dictatorship attempting
to establish open world government and tyranny...
— March 20, 2010 — "Professor
Salvör Gissurardóttir of the University of Iceland
joins The Corbett Report
to discuss the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, a bold set
of proposals for reforming Icelandic law relating to whistleblower
protection, journalistic source protection, protection from
libel tourism, and other ideas that would help to transform
Iceland into a global free speech haven." Prof. Gissurardóttir
explains how local media failed to inform the citizenry about
the growing bank crises until one morning they discovered they
were charged with being deep in debt to the British and Dutch
governments. IMMI is designed to help fix this.
