Baeldraca: Order Of Nine Angles,
2019, 105 pages, ISBN 978-1689931953

With the publication in 2019 of two printed books about the O9A – Feond, and Baeldraca – the public profile of the O9A is taken to the “next level”. A level beyond the type of satanism and the neo-nazi occultism that the O9A is, rightly or wrongly, notorious for, and thus beyond the texts contained in much earlier books such as Naos, The Black Book of Satan, and Hostia.

The new books, which compliment each other, contain a selection of post-2012 texts which deal with O9A occultism and traditions, and the knowledge and the understanding expected of the O9A Internal Adept, the stage – on the O9A Seven Fold Way – beyond the early stages of Initiate and External Adept and which early stages books such as Hostia deal with.

Most of the knowledge imparted in the two hundred or so pages of these new books will be unfamiliar to those students of the occult, and to academics, who have concentrated on studying the Qabalah based and “goetic” traditions of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn and of the likes of Mr Aleister Crowley and Michael Aquino. The knowledge will also be unfamiliar to those who follow or who study the modern ‘satanism’ of showman Howard Stanton Levey, better known under his alias of Anton LaVey.

The post-2012 texts will also disappoint those who expect to find ‘satanic rituals’ or heretical diatribes, for when not eruditely informing readers about obscure occult topics – such as sorcery in Virgil’s Aeneid, or the Greek origin of the name Baphomet – the texts deal with esoteric philosophy and how O9A esotericism and methods are related to Hellenic and Hermetic mysticism, to Renaissance alchemy, and to the neglected paganism of a septenary anados or quest. That most of the texts includes copious footnotes containing references to other O9A texts and to works such as the Corpus Hermeticum, will also deter many readers.

In consequence the books are niche products and well express the pagan, classical, Western, notion of καλὸς κἀγαθός which, as texts such as the one titled Appreciating καλὸς κἀγαθός and the O9A in the Feond book describe, could be considered to reveal the type of personal character which it is one of the main aims of the O9A Seven Fold Way to encourage and create.

Which character is the opposite of the egoistic type encouraged by the likes of Crowley, by Levey and by modern practitioners of a Hebrew indebted qabalistic Left Hand Path. A difference that Anton Long and those of the “inner O9A” {1} have pointed out many times before and after 2012. {2}

In regard to satanism and neo-nazism, the text The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A in the Feond book references neglected explanations by “Anton Long” in the early 1990s. Which explanations are that both satanism and neo-nazism are considered to be causal forms, ideas, which could be used to achieve certain Aeonic – “sinister” – goals or which can be useful as Insight Roles, as learning experiences, by the Initiate or the External Adept.
             “To achieve the strategic goals, certain tactics have to be used. This means involvement ‘in the world’ by some individuals/members – for instance, the disruption of society, the creation/manipulation of certain forms.” {3}

To conclude, the books will be useful not only to those, such as students of the occult and academics, who seek to understand the O9A, its traditions and occult roots and how it differs from other modern occult groups and movements, but also to those who have begun their own anados, their own journey, or who are considering making such a journey, along the difficult, the dangerous, O9A Seven Fold Way

{1} The Inner O9A – also known as the Inner ONA – is the exoteric name given to a small group of individuals who were recruited or trained or guided by “Anton Long” and who have achieved the Grade of Internal Adept or (more recently) who follow the O9A Rounwytha tradition. They are all personally known to each other and have an established tradition of meeting every three or so years at a Sunedrion, often at Oxford following the end of Trinity Term.

The short story Sunedrion – A Wyrdful Tale fictionalizes one such Sunedrion, and is available at http://www.o9a.org/wp-content/uploads/o9a-sunedrion-v3.pdf

°°°°°°°°°

A new 110 page book titled Feond containing some of the more arcane post-2011 (ev) O9A texts has been published and is available both as a gratis open access (pdf) document and as a printed book.

Feond is an old Anglo-Saxon word – variously meaning “fiend” or “devil” or “foe” or “an enemy” – and is appropriate given how the O9A is often perceived by other Occultists and by the mainstream media.

The target audience of the book are those who have an interest in learning about a (non-Magian) Western esoteric tradition with roots in Greco-Roman culture, Hellenistic mysticism, and Renaissance Occultism, and/or those who are already associated with the O9A movement and who aspire to, or have already achieved, the O9A grade of Internal Adept.

Nihilism

°°°°°°°°°


Nihilism And The O9A

The author of a previous item we have mentioned {1} has – or so it seems – “connected some more of the metaphysical dots” between the Order of Nine Angles and nihilism and which nihilism thus takes the O9A far beyond the “neo-nazism” that it is commonly but mistakenly said by the Occult illiterati and by the Media to espouse.

In an article titled Virtual Reality and Terrorism the author quotes from an O9A text published in Naos {2} decades ago which states that:
                   “For a long time the nature of the Left Hand Path has been misunderstood. The traditional definition as magick use for personal/destructive/negative purposes is meaningless because it assumes a framework of moral opposites, which does not, in reality, exist in relation to magickal energies. All evolution of consciousness is a magickal act – an expansion of the acausal into realm of the causal. From the ‘traditional’, moral/ Nazarene point of view all such evolution, of necessity, becomes evil. It is unfortunate that, for a long time, this simple fact has been obscured by silly systems like Qabala with its notions of a Dark Side of the Tree. No dark side exists, because what actually exists is dark of itself because it presences non-Being.”

As the author of Virtual Reality and Terrorism notes,
                   “It is all dark, because the acausal is just a […] term to denote absolute evil and every act of presencing it in the causal realm of necessity, becomes evil.”

Yet even if nihilism is accepted to mean “rejection of prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, and laws, together with a practical hostility toward accepted beliefs and/or established institutions,” then both philosophically and practically the leaderless O9A movement goes beyond the type of nihilism manifest for example in O9A insight roles, in presencing the acausal through sinister deeds, through heretical Occult rites and ceremonies, and through the O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment.

It does so because, as explained elsewhere {3} the raison d’être of the O9A is evident in:
                  “individuals undertaking an often decades-long hermetic anados (ἄνοδος) by which they might discover Lapis Philosophicus and thus acquire wisdom. A practical anados manifest in the O9A Seven Fold Way,”

and in the fact that:
                  “what the Media focus upon and misinterpret – such as alleged culling, insight roles, satanism, alleged neo-nazism, alleged disruption of society, and Occult ceremonial rituals such as those in the O9A Black Book of Satan – are related to only one temporary part of that Seven Fold Way. Which part is that relevant only to an External Adept (stage three of seven) and which part lasts from between a year to around eighteen months after which the individual moves on to other learning experiences.”

Which other learning experiences – beyond the stage of External Adept – involve “numinous experiences” such as the three to six month long rite of Internal Adept where the individual lives alone in the wilderness.

The O9A Adept therefore as a result of their anados presences some-thing – a Reality – which prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, laws, causal abstractions and forms hide or obscure or distort.

Furthermore, the O9A movement has always maintained that the knowing of this Reality is acquired wordlessly, and thus is not only an acausal-knowing but also the result of a pathei mathos – a learning from personal experience, ordeals, and challenges both Occult and practical. {4}

Thus it is perhaps more apt to describe the O9A as representing a post-modernist nihilism.

O9A: Deofel Quintet Analysis

Posted: July 7th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on O9A: Deofel Quintet Analysis

°°°°°°°°°

The O9A Deofel Quintet
(pdf)

°°°

Extract:

The O9A Deofel Quintet consists of the following novels:

              § Falcifer
              § The Temple Of Satan
              § The Greyling Owl
              § The Giving
              § Breaking The Silence Down

The Quintet – the Deofel Quartet plus the novel Breaking The Silence Down – amounts to almost 600 pages and is a neglected aspect of O9A occultism. For attention hitherto – especially in mainstream Media, by self-described modern ‘satanists’, by academics, and by self-described ‘anti-fascists’ – has focused on the alleged neo-nazi and satanist aspects of O9A occultism, with what the O9A means by satanism either ignored or misunderstood.

The Deofel Quintet {1} places the neo-nazism and the satanism aspects into the necessary esoteric perspective, for the novels of the Deofel Quintet are non-political with the overt satanism of such works as Falcifer and The Temple of Satan expressing the place of satanism in O9A tradition: which is that it is a short-lived and personal learning experience, germane to the early stages, the first few years, of the anados (ἄνοδος), the decades-long hermetic quest, for Lapis Philosophicus. An anados manifest in O9A hermeticism by the sinister-numinous Seven Fold Way.

In this perspective, both Falcifer and The Temple of Satan are concerned with initiate type learning experiences: gaining esoteric knowledge, participating in ceremonial overtly ‘satanic’ rituals, and experiencing the part of the satanic ethos that concerns personal pride and personal pleasure. But they also deal with how personal emotion – especially love – affects them, can complicate their lives, as well as offering them opportunities to learn and advance further in their anados.

Which advancement is the concern of The Greyling Owl, of The Giving, and of Breaking The Silence Down.

A Relevant Quotation

°°°°°°°°°

“I suggest here that the Order of Nine Angles is also post-Satanic, having outgrown its identification with its original Satanic paradigm to evolve its system into novel forms. I also suggest that although it still retains the concept of the “Sinister” as a familiar, familial moniker, the ONA is poised to outgrow its exclusive identification with the Left-Hand Path – a trend already indicated by the ease with which it assimilates, uses, and subverts Right-Hand Path esoteric and exoteric forms to its particular aeonic purposes; such that the ONA system includes but transcends even the Left-Hand Path / Right-Hand Path dualism which would otherwise appear endemic to the concepts of the sinister.”

O9A Transgression And Subversion

O9A Transgression And Subversion
(pdf)

°°°

In the above essay the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) is discussed in relation to two articles by the same anonymous author which were published in 2018 by a popular internet based music magazine. One of which articles – Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground – was devoted to the O9A, with the other – titled Why We’re Investigating Extreme Politics in Underground Music – dealing with artistic transgression, subversion, and infiltration, in general.

As we reveal, the article about the O9A is ill-informed, while the other article reveals a lack of understanding of artistic transgression and subversion. As we go on to note, the O9A defies classification according to mainstream, conventional, ideas, and appears to have taken “artistic transgression and subversion” to the next level.

That the anonymous author, in respect of the O9A, commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter [a generalization from specific examples] and the Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence was only to be expected.

Related to the above O9A essay is the following analysis by ‘us’ of a propaganda report on the O9A published in 2019 by an Establishment political ‘pressure group’ and hyped by mainstream Media, and in which report the author not only repeats the fallacies of secundum quid et simpliciter and of Incomplete Evidence, but also makes over twelve basic, factual, errors about the O9A and indulges in outright fabrications and misquotations.

More Lies About The O9A

Posted: June 19th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, O9A Nine Angles, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, Satanic Polemics, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on More Lies About The O9A

°°°°°°

With the recent (June 2019) jailing of two young members of a British neo-nazi group for “terrorism” offences, an anti-fascist Zionist financed group based in England with connections to British Members of Parliament, to mainstream newspapers and to television companies has stepped up their smear campaign against the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) repeating and adding to the baseless accusations and lies that they wrote about the O9A in their February 2019 report about the so-called “state of hate” and which report was widely publicized and widely quoted from in mainstream media.

As in that biased propaganda report {1}, in their latest piece of smear propaganda they again try to link the O9A to paedophilia and to the promotion of misogyny and rape. They also wrote that “paraphernalia connected to the Order of Nine Angles […] were found at the home” of someone accused of being a member of the now banned neo-nazi group National Action, and that “British neo-Nazis are morphing into Satanic rape gangs.”

In respect of their lie in their February 2019 report that “O9A literature regularly advocates ritualised rape,” we wrote

[quote] A study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 – from the pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down to the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality and with the O9A having [according to an academic] “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.” Nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by Anton Long between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate rape. In fact the O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling. {2} [/quote]

We even helpfully provided a link to an O9A text distributed in 2015 which suggested that rapists are indeed suitable candidates for culling. {3}

Furthermore, several O9A documents refute the smear, the lie, that the O9A condones and encourages paedophilia, with one O9A text written in 122 yf – 2011 ev – making it clear “that individuals of certain proclivities, involving children, are regarded by us as dishonourable individuals who most certainly are not of our kind.” {4}

As befits their anti-fascist fanaticism, the Zionist financed group continue to use the Big Lie (große Lüge) technique, not only repeating their allegation that Myatt is involved with the O9A while failing to provide and evidence whatsoever but also continuing to attribute quotations by other people to Myatt, again failing to provide any evidence for their allegation. {5}

As befits their simplistic way of thinking, the writers of the Zionist financed anti-fascist group also continue to commit the logical fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. Which is the use of particular individual cases to form a general rule to then use that rule to describe, and thence to blame, or to castigate, or to defame a whole group.

Thus they illogically and propagandistically take the example of a few individuals with certain personal proclivities and fantasies, and who may support some aspects of O9A occult philosophy and praxis, as representative of the O9A as a whole.

Meanwhile, as befits their lack of even the most basic research – and/or their desire to place lies and propaganda and hate before truth and hope – these anti-fascist fanatics continue to ignore the fact that the O9A, esoterically understood and appreciated, is at its core neither neo-nazi nor ‘satanist’ but is a sinisterly-numinous occult tradition which

David Myatt, National Socialism, And The Order Of Nine Angles

Contents:

° Is David Myatt Still A Neo-Nazi?

“While the question is David Myatt still a neo-nazi has been asked many times over the past six or seven years – with academics such as Senholt seeming to answer in the affirmative and with Myatt himself consistently denying that he is – many items written by Myatt since 2010, and his reclusive lifestyle since 2010, seen to indicate that he is no longer a neo-nazi […]
             Correctly understood, via a thorough study of the O9A corpus, the O9A is neither satanist nor neo-nazi and as a practical movement in the real world is based more on anarchy than on anything else.”

° The Myattian Saga Continues

“In the decades long and on-going saga of whether or not David Myatt is or was Anton Long of Order of Nine Angles fame some of Mr Myatt’s latest writings are intriguing and seem to provide more proof that, as he has maintained all along, he is not and was not Anton Long, founder of the O9A…..”

°°°°°°°°°

Exposing Twelve Basic Errors

In a recent report much quoted in mainstream Media the anti-fascist ‘special interest’ group calling itself “Hope not hate” devoted two sections (pages 80-85) to the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and David Myatt.

The shoddy and propagandistic – the “fake news” – nature of the report is evident in the fact that in those two sections there are over twelve basic, factual, errors ranging from outright fabrications to misquotations.

Another fundamental – damning – flaw is that various O9A and other articles are quoted but without providing references to the date and place of publication and without giving the name of the author on the original text with some articles which are falsely attributed to Myatt having been written by others.

Other fundamental flaws are that the author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt provided no evidence for their many assumptions (such as that Myatt=Long) and did not balance their claims by asking those they libelled for their comments.

That the mainstream Media published articles which extensively quoted from the pages about the O9A and Myatt in the report yet did not have its journalists ask those maligned by the report for comments, and did not have its journalists check the facts beforehand, is indicative of how even the mainstream Media is complicit in spreading “fake news”.

Had a mainstream journalist or journalists bothered to check the facts they would have found the following.

§ Quote: “For Myatt, satanism and fascism are inextricably linked.” p.84

A fabrication by the author, since Myatt in his extensive critique of Occultism first published in 1997 by Renaissance Press in New Zealand wrote:
                  “National-Socialism and Occultism are fundamentally, and irretrievably, incompatible and opposed to each other.” {1}

§ The author gives a quote allegedly written by Myatt: “National Socialism is the only real theory in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance. In a very important sense, National Socialism IS contemporary Paganism.” p.84

The author not only misquotes the original text but mistakenly attributes it to Myatt.

° The correct quotation is:
                  “National Socialism (with the esoteric exception of Traditional Satanism) is the only real Heresy in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance – of all that epitomizes the genuine Western ethos. It is a form that cannot be bought by The System, and thus the only option for the latter is to jail or kill National Socialists, and smash through innumerable legislative variations National Socialist influence, naturally dormant in the Western – or Aryan – people. It is the only form which frightens The System, and is thus the only form capable of achieving System Breakdown.”

The quotation is from a Temple 88 newsletter published in a compilation by Caput Mortuum in May 2004 via the now defunct website. {2}

° In addition and importantly, according to the Anti-Defamation League
                  “the berserker brotherhood is a relatively new motorcycle division of temple 88, a white supremacist group that describes itself as a brotherhood of white separatists. The berserker brotherhood colors have a skull in the middle of an iron cross, flanked on the right by the number 88. One anonymous berserker brotherhood member claimed on a social networking Web site that temple 88 originally formed in South Carolina’s Allendale Correctional Institute.” {3}

§ Quote: “The three volumes of The Black Book of Satan are considered so extreme that they are kept is a special section of the British Library and not available to the general public.” p.81

In fact, only two versions of the first volume are kept in the British Library. The first version was published in 1984 and is at General Reference Collection Cup.815/51.

The second version was published in 1992 under the title Codex Saerus and is at General Reference Collection YK.1994.b.12337.

Other O9A items kept in the British Library include the rare edition of Naos: a practical guide to modern magick published by Coxland Press in 1990, available at General Reference Collection YK.1993.a.13307.

§ Quote: “O9A literature regularly advocates ritualised rape, random attacks on innocent victims.” p.81

A fabrication by the author.

A study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 – from the pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down {4} to the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos {5} – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality {5} and with the O9A having “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.” {6}

Nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate rape.

In fact the O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling {7}.

In addition, nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate random attacks on innocent victims.

§ Quote: “The ceremony ends with the killing of a chosen one; in a symbolic sacrifice, an animal replaces a person.” p.81

The ceremony in question is The Ceremony of Recalling and nowhere is there any mention of sacrificing an animal, which is fabrication on the part of the author. The ceremony is included in the text Grimoire of Baphomet.

In addition, O9A texts dating from the 1980s and 1990s reveal that they “despise animal sacrifice.” {8}

§ Quote: “When asked in 2005 if the O9A were posing as nazis to recruit and spread their message, Myatt – writing under the name Darkos Lago – responded: You seem to have missed the point about ONA and National Socialism.” p. 82

Where is the evidence for the propagandistic assumption that Myatt used that or any other pseudonym? The author provides no evidence whatsoever.

In addition, the author not only gets the year wrong but misattributes the quote. The post was published in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos not by Darkos Lago {9}.

§ Quote: “To Myatt, Satanism represented the Black Order, the only force that could unlock the stranglehold [of] the White Order.” p. 84

A fabrication, for Myatt does not mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings, be such writings from his time as a National Socialist (1968-1998), as a Muslim (1998-2009) or as an advocate of his numinous way/philosophy of pathei-mathos (2010-present).

Neither does “Anton Long” mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings.

§ Quote: “In an interview as recently as 2013, Myatt explained their strategy. “Insofar as I understand the matter, it seems that the ‘satanic’ overtones of the ONA serves several subversive purposes.” p.83.

The quoted text was not an interview with Myatt, was not published in 2013 but was posted in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos {9}.

§ Quote: “In the 1990s the leadership of the O9A was taken over by Richard Moult.”

The author reveals a basic lack of understanding of the O9A. For there is not and never was a “leader” of the O9A, as a study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 makes clear. {10}

According to Professor Monette the O9A
                  “is not a structured lodge or temple, but rather a movement, a subculture or perhaps metaculture that its adherents choose to embody or identify with.” {11}

That is, the O9A is a collection of autonomous cells (nexions) and individuals who follow or who are inspired by the Occult philosophy and practices described in the O9A corpus.

§ Quote: “In 2001 I met David Myatt in a Shropshire pub, close to where he shared a caravan with Richard Moult.”

The author fabricates where both Myatt and Moult then lived. At the time Myatt lived in the village of Leigh Sinton near Malvern with his wife and family while Moult lived with his female partner on a farm near Lydbury North in Shropshire.

These facts were known to both the police and MI5 since Myatt was under surveillance following his arrest by Special Branch in 1998 and his interrogation in 1999 by the anti-terrorist squad in relation to Copeland’s nail-bomb attacks in London. At the time of the interview with Lowles, Myatt was still on bail following his 1998 arrest with one of his bail conditions being that he attend Charing Cross police station on a regular basis.

In addition, the places of residence could be confirmed by County Council tax reports, by tax returns from HM Revenue and Customs, and by other official documents, with Myatt at the time working on a farm near Malvern.

Myatt’s version of the interview with Lowles {12} provides a different version of the events.

§ Errors on pseudonyms.

The author gets the following pseudonyms wrong. He has

° Christos Beast – instead of Christos Beest
° Darkos Lago – instead of Dark Logos
° A. A. Morian – instead of A. A. Morain
° Michael Mouthwork – instead of Michael Morthwork

§ Logical Fallacies.

The author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt commits two basic logical fallacies.

° First, he commits the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, Which is, to quote Myatt, {13} “when material concerning or assumptions about a particular matter are selected and presented to support a particular argument or conclusion, while other material or assumptions which do not support, which contradict, the chosen argument or conclusion are withheld or not discussed. In effect, selective evidence and/or selective argument are used in order to ‘prove’ a particular point.”

The author thus omits to mention or quote from O9A texts which contradict his assumptions or which place into context the quotations he uses. The author also omits to quote from Myatt’s extensive post-2010 writings about his rejection of extremism and about his mystical, ethical, philosophy of pathei-mathos; quotations which would provide Myatt’s side of the story.

In the case of the O9A the author does not, for example, in the matter of “culling” mention or quote from O9A texts which reveal that there is wide diversity of opinion within the O9A as to whether O9A culling is real or merely part of its Labyrinthos Mythologicus {14} and thus just
                  “a test of occult intuition and a test also designed to put many people off, cause controversy and so generate interest in the O9A.” {15}

As Richard Moult recently wrote:
                  “Regarding culling: I have always understood this to be a mischievous aspect of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and during my time associated with its Septenary techniques, I experienced nothing to suggest otherwise.” {16}

The same questions regarding the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus apply in the matter of the O9A suggesting Insight Roles that may involve criminal acts.

° Second, the author of the sections in the report dealing with the O9A and Myatt commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. Which is the use of particular individual cases to form a general rule to then use that rule to describe, and thence to blame, or to castigate, or to defame a whole group.

Thus the author uses selective quotes from people who have associated themselves with the O9A and uses his selection to describe and to defame the O9A.

Trusting In Fake News

So many errors and flaws in so few pages exposes the sections on the O9A and Myatt in the report as untrustworthy, as “fake news”, as propaganda designed to discredit written by an author with a particular political agenda.

The sections on the O9A and Myatt are also a masterclass in how to write, distribute, and have the mainstream Media publish fake news, to thus get the public to believe and spread such fake news.
