Message to the Chancellor of Austria Mr Sebastian Kurz

On 25/8/2018 at 01:40, I sent an email, through one of the popular free email servers, with a message to the Federal Chancellor of Austria Mr Sebastian Kurz (see the appendix bellow).

As, because of Edward Snowdens’ public revelations about the colonizing countries’ frauds at the Internet, I have some reasonable doubts about whether my email has, actually, reached its destination, and as reaching its destination is essential for the personal security of an innocent and lawful citizen, meaning myself, I feel obliged to publicize the content of this email.

Also, I would like to use this opportunity to mention the followings:

 

- It is an undeniable fact that in Greece, a dictatorship has been established.

- It is an undeniable fact that the Greek citizens have no access, because it is forbiden by law, to their corresponding formal, judicial files and criminal records. This fact constitutes an undeniable violation of all the Human Rights of all the Greek citizens. Also, this fact constitute undeniable evidence that Greece’s official, judicial files and criminal records, of which the electronic form is being maintained by a specific private company, have, absolutely, no legal value at all.

- It is an undeniable fact that the United Kingdom excersizes colonialism against Greece.

- It is an undeniable fact that the contermporary colonizing Nations, namely U.K., U.S.A., Russia, Israel and Turkey, conduct illegal human experimentations against unwilling and usually unsuspected, innocent, lawful and healthy European citizens and not only.

- It is an undeniable fact that the contemporary colonizing Nations, have developed electronic brain implants that materialize the technology of Remote Neural Monitoring; that they have developed this technology on involuntary and, mostly, unsuspeced human “guinea pigs”; that they avoid informing these victims about their involuntary implanted electronic gear; and that, some of the most prominent whistleblowers who have revealed, directly or indirectly, what is going on about these brain implants have died, supposedly, from lethal illnesses (Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, Gloria Naylor, Archibishop Christodoulos etc.).

- It is an undeniable fact that the contemporary colonizing Nations perform a modern version of their traditional “Operation Condor”.

- It is an undeniable fact that the contemporary science has developed a technology which exploits the part of human brain which is called “Claustrum” for wirelessly inducing to a human being the mental state of awake unconsiousness, for a time period and then to restore, seemlessly meaning without the individual, neither, to notice, nor, to even suspect its unconsiousness, the normal mental consiousness.

- It is an undeniable fact that the contemporary colonizing Nation abuse the NATO’s antiterrorists’ databases in order to exercize gangstalking, which is a death program, against legitimate political dissidents.

 

In my web site www.agorapoliton.gr, which is being hosted to an web server located at Atlanta, USA, I have, promptly publicized formal documents which prove that, during April 2014 I have been politically persecuted by the Greek Authorities; and on May 1st, 2014 I fled from Greece.

I have publicized information about the alleged murder against my father Takis Bompolas and about the conditions which my mother Olga Bompola, which is a crucial legal witness at a lawsuit case, is suffering.

I may have publicized, directly and/or indirectly, information about the colonizing Nations’ illegitimate activities upon Greek soil, during the past, approximately, sixty years; about the names of some of the “drugged and maddened with opiates beforehand”, colonizing Nations’ operatives; about the front-organizations which were used; about the places at which the related crimes have been committed; and, in some cases, about, approximately, the time at which, those crimes, were committed. Within these crimes, my personal victimization as an involuntary human “guinea pig” and as one of the victims of involuntary brain implanting, are included.

I have publicized undeniable evidence about my, various, public clames.

I have submited claims, against Greece’s dictatorial, political establishment, at the European Court for the Human Rights.

I have submited multiple claims, against the United Kingdom, at the International Criminal Court at Hague.

 

Since the day that I was born and until today, I remain, continously, a lawful, honest and harmless human being.

From 1979 and then I have been victimized by the United Kingdom’s operatives in order to, involuntary, become a human “guinea pig” and probably, an involuntary “donor” of internal tissues/organs. The colonizers, in order for me to remain unsuspected about my victimization, they subjected me to gangstalkig ever since.

 

Since May 1st, 2014, the date that I fled from Greece I kept seeking for legitimate, foreign support from various countries which I visited. None of them offered me such a support.

I believe that:

 

- Torturing inhumanly an innocent human being is very wrong.

- The involuntary transhumanization is very wrong.

- The involuntary human harvesting of alive human beings is very wrong.

- The gangstalking against innocent and lawfull citizens is very wrong.

- The refusal to provide support to innocent and lawfull citizens which are being inhumanly tortured by the colonizing Nations is very wrong.

- The, active and/or passive, acceptance that an innocent and lawfull citizen can remain a switch-on/switch-of puppet of “drugged and maddened with opiates beforehand” atrocious murderers is very wrong.

- The usage against innocent civilians of directed-energy military weapons in order to cook them is very wrong.

 

The European States, excluding the honorable and brave German Nation which, during the WW2 fought against the colonizing Nations of that time in order to rescue, the European Continent from the “drugged and maddened with opiates beforehand” bolseviks, its families and its fatherland and which suffered unimaginable catastrophies, from what it seems, they refuse to offer protection to the individual victims of the contemporary colonialism, despite the fact that, these victims’ innocense and legitimity remains overt and undeniable. And this fact, according to my opinion, may designate that, these States are, complicit to the contemporary colonialism, or, they have been subjugated by the contemporary colonialism, or, the civilization that they embed does not include adequate, active respect for the Human Rights.

Therefore, I wonder, is there any good, for any specific Nation, to retain bilateral, or multilateral, relatonships with other Nations that, for any reason, they remain either unwilling or unable to offer protection to innocent human beings while these innocent human beings are being arbitrarily persecuted by the “mighty ones” of our era?

P.S.: Many, many millions of innocent civilians, worldwide, die each year from supposedly spontaneous manifestations of lethal illnesses. The rest of the citizens, probably, consider that, these deaths are either God’s will or simply, natural phenomena. At the same time, according to my present knowledge, there are no complaints, worldwide, about the fluorization of the drinking water and the eating salt. Therefore, I believe that the possibility of our world to become, even little, improved, is a realistic one.

 

Appendix

 

To: His Excellency Mr Sebastian Kurz, Federal Chancellor of Austria

From: Mr Christos Boumpoulis

Date: 25/8/2018

Subject: Request for urgent support

 

Your Excellency Mr Sebastian Kurz,

 

My name is Christos Boumpoulis and I am a lawful Greek citizen and legitimate political dissident.

In Greece and from June 2010 and then, we have a major political incident. The related parameters are the following:

 

1. “Hugh Cooper & Co” treaty and Greece’s enormous mineral wealth.

2. Kirki village’s huge Copper mine.

3. External loans Referendums and Constitution’s violations.

4. The political circumstances, in Greece, drifted to an ordinary dictatorship. Many thousands of innocent Greek civilians have already died due to externally induced instrumental poverty; due to forest fire set on purpose; and most probably, due to an intended population exchanging.

5. Most of the members of Greece’s natural leadership have, somehow, died.

6. There are formal arrangements which prepare the annexation, approximately, half of Greece’s territory to a foreign country (FYROM, Russia).

7. The Greek population remains devastated as, a Genocide, of causing mental harm to them, may has been committed.

8. The instigators of Greece’s, current, political dictatorship, most probably, conduct an international operation which is similar to the well known “Operation Condor” for “silencing”, from the legitimate Greek dissidents, those, like myself, who have promptly fled from Greece. This instigators are a group of colonizing countries.

9. There are also elements, of long term, illegitimate and involuntary human experimentation and of human organs/tissues involuntary harvesting from alive subjects and smuggling.

 

On May 1st, 2014, I fled from Greece and I remain since then, mostly, in the central Europe and through the Internet I try to support my fellow Greek citizens.

Currently, I am located in Lochau, Austria while, I very much need support in terms of, personal security and financially.

Therefore, I am kindly asking from you, after having verified my, above, claims, to offer me such a support, in the name of an innocent and kind Nation, namely Greece which, currently, remains under a state of extreme duress and faces a large and probably, irreversible multi-dimensional catastrophie.

Cordially,

 

Christos Boumpoulis

P.S.: As the current Greek government has become prone for falling, it has emerged, on behalf of the instigators, a large effort for the Greek dissidents to become “neutralized” as soon as possible. Therefore, an element of urgency exists with regard to the requested support.

"He sent them (the collected data) to the German Ministry of Defense in Bonn. Their answer was: 'Yes we are aware of U.S.A. conducting experiments on Germans, but we are powerless'. I then contacted Andreas von Bülow who had been in the German government under Helmut Schmidt that was Chancellor then and who was later chairman of the German Control Committee of the German Parliament for the German Secret Services for many years. So he knew a lot about how the Secret Services are working. And because he also became a lawyer and I was (gang-) stalked because of my Estonia research or because I represented relatives here in Sweden we kept in touch... And Bülow told me, 'No no no you can not go to the German Ministry of Defense but you must go to a special guy at the American Embassy in Germany. This happened in 1998-1999. My cousin left there his evidence that he was... radiated to the CIA guy in Germany and two days later he was free. And for me it was a very nice key experience. How it first was and suddenly it stopped. For they thought: 'It's becoming too difficult'. I was known via TV, etc because of my Estonia-commitment. And they became fearful".

ΑΫΦΑΝΤΗΣ ΚΟΥΠΕΡ NEWSΚΟΣΜΟΣ

www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiP2DlSCIBc


In the above Youtube video which is titled, “ΑΫΦΑΝΤΗΣ ΚΟΥΠΕΡ NEWSΚΟΣΜΟΣ” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiP2DlSCIBc), the prominent Greek military general George Aifantis testifies that, the entire Greek political system, during June 2010, committed treason against Greece by not terminating the "Hugh Cooper & Co" treaty. That treaty was signed between, essentially, the U.S.A. and the Greek government, as a consequence of the “Marsal” economic aid plan, after the end of the WW2. By that treaty the control of the total of Greece’s mineral wealth was transferred, exclusively, to the American, until 31/12/2010. In that treaty a term was included that was giving to the Greek government the opportunity to unilateraly terminate the treaty before 30/6/2010; otherwise, the treaty was going to, silently, become renewed for twenty five more years.

The retired Greek Army General George Aifantis testifies:

"Greece, gentlemen, who has mineral wealth more than a hundred times, than Chile's, why then is she hungry? Because they do not allow us to exploit this wealth. And they do not allow us to exploit, gentlemen, our mineral wealth, because of a concession that once happened towards the American companies and the consequence is that the U.S.A. is going to dominate the wealth of our Stat held by America, our state wealth for another twenty-five years.

Because when a year ago, on television in Athens, I was presented and urged the government to unilaterally, terminate the Cooper treaty, because it had a magnificent article, the thirty article, saying: "Six months before the ending of the treaty, which it was on 30/12/2010, if, until 30/12/2010, the Greek Government does not declare the unilateral termination of the treaty, it is non-verbally renewed for another twenty-five years, and therefore, fellow Greeks, be careful if you let the same Government and the same political parties, to govern our country in the future, after the new elections, you must know that we will be slaves for another twenty-five years because the Cooper treaty was renewed, silently, and all our minerals shall be controlled by the U.S.A.

...

If, however, fellow Greeks, you manage to change governments; to change the Constitution; and vote for Greek politicians, in the upcoming elections and consequently a Greek government becomes formed then, [she] may consider the Cooper treaty void. Because, there have already been fifty years passed without, this treaty, being activated and consequently, it can become unilaterally terminated.

However, the current members of all parties, although I said that the Communist Party had a moral obligation, because the one who first revealed the Cooper's treaty was executed and he gave his own blood and his own life for the revelation of Cooper's treaty, that political Party had a moral line.

Good and clear words, after thirty years of drilling, at Thessaly and Grevena, has been proven to exist as mineral reserves, gas and oil; there is a secret report at IGME, which is being manipulated from the outset and does not take its reports out for giving them to the Greek people and we, as a result, remain collectively hungry.

Hitler, when he brought troops of occupation, worked here in the village of Vathi, Kilkis, for mining uranium. And he took uranium and made seven bombs. What happened to the bombs, you'll find it in my book, "Awakening". Those, which the Americans threw at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were Hitler's. They did not have bombs, then, the Americans. And they were taken from the uranium of Kilkis, the village of Vathi, Kilkis. He worked in Kirki village, between Alexandroupolis and Sappes. Close to the train there is the Kirki village. Close to this village, there is Kirki's mines, sulfur-mixed.

The sulfur-mixed, my dear Greeks, are chemical composites, it is from the nature, so it is joined with many metals: iron, copper, gold, lead, silver.

It is so rich the Kirki's mine, in copper, silver, gold and lead, which are the richest in the world.

The pellons, we call them so, we which are dealing with the mines, because, of course, Sirs, I have also studied physicochemistry and have been dealing with the mines for several years. Because he had thrown me away, the junta from the army for a few years and in order to brought up my children, because I knew physics and chemistry, I was making research over the mountains and I was discovering marbles and mines and then I was selling them to those who had money in order to live my children. I have see them and I know them better than the IGME's executives who get information them from the books and maps; however, the books are taken from England and Germany, not from our own domestic research.

The metal that goes into the rock, if it is thirty centimeters, forty centimeters, its width, we call it, a pellon. It has come out of the Greek word, "vein".

All over the world, exploiting, Gentlemen, in sulfur-mixed are, at most, half a meter, sixty, seventy centimeters. Do you know how much Kirki's pellons are? Twenty-five and thirty meters, Gentlemen. And it is totally unexploited. Those Nations who have, twenty centimeters, thirty, pellons, exploit and live their peoples. Since the day Hitler left, the Greek governments have not put, at Kirki's mine not even a glimpse.

Consciousness on-off switch discovered deep in brain

By Helen Thomson

ONE moment you’re conscious, the next you’re not. For the first time, researchers have switched off consciousness by electrically stimulating a single brain area.

Scientists have been probing individual regions of the brain for over a century, exploring their function by zapping them with electricity and temporarily putting them out of action. Despite this, they have never been able to turn off consciousness – until now.

Although only tested in one person, the discovery suggests that a single area – the claustrum – might be integral to combining disparate brain activity into a seamless package of thoughts, sensations and emotions. It takes us a step closer to answering a problem that has confounded scientists and philosophers for millennia – namely how our conscious awareness arises.

Many theories abound but most agree that consciousness has to involve the integration of activity from several brain networks, allowing us to perceive our surroundings as one single unifying experience rather than isolated sensory perceptions.

One proponent of this idea was Francis Crick, a pioneering neuroscientist who earlier in his career had identified the structure of DNA. Just days before he died in July 2004, Crick was working on a paper that suggested our consciousness needs something akin to an orchestra conductor to bind all of our different external and internal perceptions together.

With his colleague Christof Koch, at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, he hypothesised that this conductor would need to rapidly integrate information across distinct regions of the brain and bind together information arriving at different times. For example, information about the smell and colour of a rose, its name, and a memory of its relevance, can be bound into one conscious experience of being handed a rose on Valentine’s day.

The pair suggested that the claustrum – a thin, sheet-like structure that lies hidden deep inside the brain – is perfectly suited to this job (Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society B, doi.org/djjw5m).

It now looks as if Crick and Koch were on to something. In a study published last week, Mohamad Koubeissiat the George Washington University in Washington DC and his colleagues describe how they managed to switch a woman’s consciousness off and on by stimulating her claustrum. The woman has epilepsy so the team were using deep brain electrodes to record signals from different brain regions to work out where her seizures originate. One electrode was positioned next to the claustrum, an area that had never been stimulated before.

When the team zapped the area with high frequency electrical impulses, the woman lost consciousness. She stopped reading and stared blankly into space, she didn’t respond to auditory or visual commands and her breathing slowed. As soon as the stimulation stopped, she immediately regained consciousness with no memory of the event. The same thing happened every time the area was stimulated during two days of experiments (Epilepsy and Behavior, doi.org/tgn).

To confirm that they were affecting the woman’s consciousness rather than just her ability to speak or move, the team asked her to repeat the word “house” or snap her fingers before the stimulation began. If the stimulation was disrupting a brain region responsible for movement or language she would have stopped moving or talking almost immediately. Instead, she gradually spoke more quietly or moved less and less until she drifted into unconsciousness. Since there was no sign of epileptic brain activity during or after the stimulation, the team is sure that it wasn’t a side effect of a seizure.

Koubeissi thinks that the results do indeed suggest that the claustrum plays a vital role in triggering conscious experience. “I would liken it to a car,” he says. “A car on the road has many parts that facilitate its movement – the gas, the transmission, the engine – but there’s only one spot where you turn the key and it all switches on and works together. So while consciousness is a complicated process created via many structures and networks – we may have found the key.”

“Consciousness is created via many structures and networks but we may have found the ignition key”

Awake but unconscious

Counter-intuitively, Koubeissi’s team found that the woman’s loss of consciousness was associated with increased synchrony of electrical activity, or brainwaves, in the frontal and parietal regions of the brain that participate in conscious awareness. Although different areas of the brain are thought to synchronise activity to bind different aspects of an experience together, too much synchronisation seems to be bad. The brain can’t distinguish one aspect from another, stopping a cohesive experience emerging.

Since similar brainwaves occur during an epileptic seizure, Koubeissi’s team now plans to investigate whether lower frequency stimulation of the claustrum could jolt them back to normal. It may even be worth trying for people in a minimally conscious state, he says. “Perhaps we could try to stimulate this region in an attempt to push them out of this state.”

“We could try to stimulate the region in a minimally conscious person to try to jolt them out of this state”

Anil Seth, who studies consciousness at the University of Sussex, UK, warns that we have to be cautious when interpreting behaviour from a single case study. The woman was missing part of her hippocampus, which was removed to treat her epilepsy, so she doesn’t represent a “normal” brain, he says.

However, he points out that the interesting thing about this study is that the person was still awake. “Normally when we look at conscious states we are looking at awake versus sleep, or coma versus vegetative state, or anaesthesia.” Most of these involve changes of wakefulness as well as consciousness but not this time, says Seth. “So even though it’s a single case study, it’s potentially quite informative about what’s happening when you selectively modulate consciousness alone.”

“Francis would have been pleased as punch,” says Koch, who was told by Crick’s wife that on his deathbed, Crick was hallucinating an argument with Koch about the claustrum and its connection to consciousness.

“Ultimately, if we know how consciousness is created and which parts of the brain are involved then we can understand who has it and who doesn’t,” says Koch. “Do robots have it? Do fetuses? Does a cat or dog or worm? This study is incredibly intriguing but it is one brick in a large edifice of consciousness that we’re trying to build.”

Secret Databases

The ACLU has released a report on Fusion Centers. 800,000 operatives will be dispersed throughtout every American city and town. Set to report on even the most common everyday behaviors which will go into state, local and regional, linked data bases. These linked databases are not just emerging in the United States, they have already emerged in many countries around the world in the wake of implied terrorist threats.


In the six months since our report, new press accounts have borne out many of our warnings. In just that short time, news accounts have reported overzealous intelligence gathering, the expansion of uncontrolled access to data on innocent people, hostility to open government laws, abusive entanglements between security agencies and the private sector, and lax protections for personally identifiable

information.

Overall, it is becoming increasingly clear that fusion centers are part of a new domestic intelligence apparatus. The elements of this nascent domestic surveillance system include:

• Watching and recording the everyday activities of an ever-growing list of individuals

• Channeling the flow of the resulting reports into a centralized security agency

• Sifting through (“data mining”) these reports and databases with computers to identify individuals for closer scrutiny

Such a system, if allowed to permeate our society, would be nothing less than the creation of a total surveillance society.” 3

These fusion center will have the capacity to circumvent laws that are in place to limit federal vs local authorities and the access that each has to specific information.


“Even more troubling is the fact that these centers are networked together and seamlessly exchange information with the intelligence community through the Director of National Intelligence’s Information Sharing Environment (ISE). The Washington Post report was based on a document produced from a survey of fusion centers, which shows their intent to maximize the access each of the fusion centers has to the various databases. This would allow a state fusion center that under state law or local policy is prohibited from buying credit reports, as an example, to circumvent its own restrictions by simply calling a

fusion center in Pennsylvania to and asking Pennsylvania authorities to access the records it wants to analyze. This “policy shopping” process guts state and local privacy protections and gives the participating agencies, including the federal intelligence community, access to information they may not legally have on their own.” 3

These centers if allowed to expand will create a one way justice system. Your information, even your daily activities will be allowed to be gathered, collected, and possibly used against you. When you then request information to confirm if you are a target of surveillance, the information will be stored in a secret database and not available for you to access.


“Even as fusion centers are positioned to learn more and more about the American public, authorities are moving to ensure that the public knows less and less about fusion centers. In particular, there appears to be an effort by the federal government to coerce states into exempting their fusion centers from state open government laws.31 For those living in Virginia, it’s already too late; the Virginia General Assembly passed a law in April 2008 exempting the state’s fusion center from the Freedom of Information Act.32

According to comments by the commander of the Virginia State Police Criminal Intelligence Division and the administrative head of the center, the federal government pressured Virginia into passing the law, with the threat of withholding classified information if it didn’t.33 Such efforts suggest there is a real danger

fusion centers will become a “one-way mirror” in which citizens are subject to ever-greater scrutiny by the authorities, even while the authorities are increasingly protected from scrutiny by the public.” 3
