COMMENTARY

Richard Linklater

by Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

February 23, 2015

 Who is the best working director in America today?

It’s a miracle Linklater’s film was even nominated.

If you ask the usual Hollywood suspects, they’ll give you a top-ten list featuring the usual Hollywood schlockmeisters. Sure, some are good at what they do. A few have occasionally produced breakthrough works of cinematic art. But even the “best filmmakers in Hollywood”  tend to keep their heads firmly ensconced in Hollywood – that “plastic asshole of the universe” in the immoral words of William Faulkner.

As far as I can tell, there are only two genuinely great American directors: David Lynch and Richard Linklater – and both are 9/11 truthers. Their greatness is in direct proportion to their willingness to tell Hollywood to stick its Oscars where the sun don’t shine. By supporting 9/11 truth, Linklater and Lynch are pointedly refusing Hollywood’s illusion du reel – its orchestrated obliteration of the audience’s ability to discern the difference between cheesy mythic fantasy and actual reality, in politics and social life as well as in the movies.

 

So I wasn’t really surprised when Linklater, a major force for 9/11 truth in Hollywood, was denied an Oscar for Boyhood, a movie that kicks the Hollywood style up and down Hollywood Boulevard and then punts it all the way to Texas, burns it to the ground, and reconstitutes filmmaking from the ground up as something far more beautiful and infinitely more real than anything ever dreamed of by the Plastic Assholians.

Instead, the Best Picture Oscar went to another anti-Hollywood opus, Alejandro Iñárritu’s Birdman. Far be it from me to seriously badmouth Birdman, especially since I haven’t seen it yet. But from what I hear, it’s another of those anti-Hollywood black comedies, like the Coen brothers’ Barton Fink. It’s said to be a technical tour de force, looking like it was all filmed in one shot, like Hitchcock’s Rope. But unless I miss my guess, it probably doesn’t have a whole lot of humanity, humaneness, or heart.

By refusing to hand the Best Picture Oscar to American Sniper, a typically Hollywoodian bit of satanic genocide propaganda, and instead giving it to the “artsy, anti-Hollywood” Birdman, Hollywood’s Elders of Zion pointedly avoided acknowledging the genius of 9/11 truther Richard Linklater, whose even more “artsy, anti-Hollywood” films engage heart, soul and mind.

Hollywood PR flacks sold Linklater’s Boyhood by emphasizing its unique artifice: Filmed over a dozen years or so, it shows the actors (and the characters they play) aging before our eyes. But unlike Hitchcock’s artifice in Rope (and, I’ll bet, Iñárritu’s in Birdman), Linklater’s helps reveal the souls, and thereby the beauty, of ordinary human beings living very ordinary lives.

The Hollywood Elders don’t give a damn about ordinary Americans or their ordinary lives, and they wouldn’t recognize the human soul if it snuck up and bit them on the ass. They’re too busy snorting cocaine in their hot-tubs and dreaming up soul-killing propaganda movies like American Sniper and Zero Dark Thirty and Argo and 9/11: Zelikow’s Scripted and Storyboarded Snuff Film.

So it was actually something of a miracle that Linklater’s Boyhood even managed an Oscar nomination. Somebody must have screwed up.

As Linklater himself has said, it was even a miracle that his movie ever got made. “Pro-9/11 truth anti-Hollywood director wants funding for a project that will take twelve years to film?!”  Normally that would be a non-starter.

So hats off to Richard Linklater and the crew that made Boyhood – a film that’s helping keep a tiny spark of decency and humanity alive in the vast wasteland of what passes for America.

do something

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Knowledge is a precursor to action and self-empowerment. Subsequently, how and where we get our news is critically important. This article explores how America sits upon the abyss of total brainwashing and how the last vestige of unbiased truth is about to disappear.

The Digital Age of News

Just over 75% of Americans get news at least daily, including 60% of adults under age 30, from the Internet on a regular basis. Almost half of all American adults with access to the Internet subscribe to news alerts. Among smartphone owners, 78% use their device to get news. Seventy-three percent of tablet owners use their device to get news.

“The use of social media does vary by age group: 7 in 10 adults under age 30 say they learned news through social media in the last week, 6 in 10 of those age 30-39, 4 in 10 age 40-59 and 1 in 5 for those 60 or older. Social media, in other words, has become a significant part of the news consumption habits for many Americans across generations”.

Despite the omnipresence of the Internet as the predominant means that people under the age of 40 get their news and information, Americans are largely clueless that Obama’s FCC has produced a 322 page “net neutrality” document which is so ominous that it nearly guarantees the end of the Independent Media as we know it.

Last night, I interviewed Doug Hagmann about this threat to free speech and uncensored information. Just like Obamacare and the Trans Pacific Partnership, once again, even Congress is not allowed to see the 322 page document. However, leaks would indicate that Internet content will be controlled under hate speech legislation and is designed to promote a prevailing Obama-inspired social and political agenda and that the use of the Internet will soon become prohibitively expensive to use. This is a huge victory for the dying mainstream media and the corporate moguls who have hijacked our government and they are now ready to completely hijack the truth.

It is not surprising that the globalists would try and censor free speech on the Internet because people are increasingly preferring to listen to the Hagmann and Hagmann Report on the Internet, than they would prefer to watch CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on corporate controlled television. What is surprising is that Americans are seemingly taking this censorship lying down and not even putting up a semblance of a protest.

Three Psychological Reasons Why Americans Are Politically Paralyzed

For years, I have said that Americans would be motivated to take to the streets with pitchforks, if the government did two things: (1) try to confiscate guns; and, (2) take away the free and uncensored Internet. I may have been wrong on these two points, because, according to Doug Hagmann, we could be days away from losing the freedom associated with the Internet.

There is a set of psychological reasons why our people, even those that are seemingly more awake than most, would accept this latest tyranny from their government. We know about cognitive dissonance which prevents people from seeing the totality of a threat and thus inhibiting their personal ability to make the paradigm shift needed to accurately perceive the threat. We also know about bystander apathy which stands as an obstacle to getting involved because in this large country, “someone else will do it”. And there is a third psychological reason which prevents us from getting involved because we have been conditioned that our actions cannot make any difference which is reflective of a condition called, learned helplessness.

The Brainwashing of America

Americans have been brainwashed into believing that their government will care for them in their time of need. Has this time in American history been foretold? I believe that it has and that H. G. Wells was the prophetic messenger of the New World Order.

Wells actually understood a concept that modern day psychologists refer to as learned helplessness and he wrote about it in his book, The Time Machine, which was originally published in 1895 and the book was later made into a 1960 hit movie by the same name. The book prophetically told of a time in the distant future where the “normal” inhabitants of the earth would be docile, passive and suffer from the condition that modern day psychologists refer to as “learned helplessness.” What is learned helplessness?

Learned Helplessness

Why won’t America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction, now sitting idly while allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?

The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as “Learned Helplessness” as discovered by Martin Seligman in the 1960’s.

“Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal, or a person, is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape from. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.

Phase One

In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.

Phase Two

In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.

Phase Three

Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This, in large part, is where America is at today.

HG Wells Was One of “Them”

HG Wells, an avowed globalist.

Wells was an avowed globalist and Eugenicist, and he portrayed the experiences of a time-traveler in the year 802701 A.D.  HG Well’s work demonstrated the complete and present day suicidal compliance of the concept of learned helplessness in which the brainwashed people were portrayed in first, the novel and later in the movie starring Rod Taylor, as George, and Yvette Mimieux, as Weena.

The 1960 movie, The Time Machine.

When George arrived, in his time machine, to the distant future he found an extremely passive race, almost appearing to have been lobotomized, known as the Eloi. On the surface, this passive race lived a blissful life along an idyllic riverbank eating fruits and berries and engaged in meaningless conversation. Every need was “magically” provided for the Eloi by unseen benefactors. Upon his arrival, George thought the Eloi lived an enchanted life, but how they maintained their lifestyle remained a mystery. George took note that hard work and struggle had been replaced by a lifestyle which contained no cares, no anxieties, no responsibilities and this race of people were devoid of any ambition as it appeared to have been bred out them. Today, the Eloi would all own an Obamaphone.

In an early scene in the movie, Weena, was being swept away by a swift river current and not one of the Eloi lifted a finger to rescue her. George rescued Weena. Isn’t that what America is doing today in that most are not expending any energy resisting the tidal wave of tyranny which is threatening to sweep away the members of our country?

George quickly realized that the Eloi had no real culture, no accomplishments and were devoid of any knowledge of their history and mindlessly recreated with no cares, no worries, no responsibilities, and no ambition. In short, this is what America is becoming today.The Eloi all looked alike, they all acted alike and lived happily together in their ignorant and blissful collectivist life-style. This is the third world country that America is quickly becoming in which we stand for nothing, excellence in accomplishment is not often sought after nor honored and our people completely lack any demonstrable sense of courage on a mass scale.

Searching for answers to the question on why the Eloi were happily living in a state of arrested development, George visited the abandoned library of the Eloi and discovered that humanity had bifurcated following a nuclear conflict. The Eloi remained above ground and the physically mutated Morlocks inhabited the underworld but, through stealth, controlled the Eloi. Analogous to Wells’ story, today’s leaders have bifurcated from the public and are literally and figuratively serving the dark side which seeks to destroy humanity.

One afternoon, in the classic movie, the air raid sirens sounded and the Eloi fell into a pre-programmed trance and mindlessly marched toward a pyramid looking bomb shelter, entered, and disappeared as the doors automatically closed. Before George could rescue Weena, she too, was among those who disappeared. When the sirens stopped, the Eloi stopped marching toward the bomb shelter and they returned to normal. George frantically pressed the Eloi survivors, who remained on the outside, as to what had just happened and the only programmed response that he received was that everything was “all clear.”

“All clear”, is the familiar phrase which has been uttered by every population following the cessation of bombing raids. Like the Eloy, America is marching to a silent siren being repetitively played by the media in which we constantly receive the message that we should all mindlessly and unquestionably trust in the government.

The Eloi showed no sorrow and no concern for their fellow citizens who simply disappeared behind the structure and never returned. In the same manner, America shows little remorse for our loss of liberties and financial well-being, which may never return.

Eventually, George was able to gain access to the underground bomb shelter and he discovered that the Morlocks, were cannibalizing the Eloi. As it turned out, the Eloi had been mindlessly programmed to march silently and obediently to their own destruction with absolutely no resistance. The Morlocks, forced to live underground after the nuclear conflict, provided every need for the Eloi in order to fatten them up for the kill, but most of all, they had conditioned the Eloi, in the Pavlovian conditioning tradition, to completely obey. The Eloi were the quintessential example of learned helplessness.

The Morlocks are a symbolic representation of America’s present modern-day Obama administration and symbolizes the global elite who largely hide in the shadows as they attempt to control every facet of our lives. Like the Eloi, Americans are taught by the government that they must be protected for our own good. We not only have to be protected from outside threats, and we also have to be protected from ourselves (i.e., returning veterans, Constitutionalists, Bible believing Christians , etc).

This bomb shelter scene of the movie was indeed very prophetic and very telling, as this precisely represents the globalists reality being carried out in America today in which the government is in the process of  taking care of all of the basic citizen needs as the last vestiges of liberty and the accompanying sense of responsibility is removed. Subsequently, the public’s work ethic and the determined conviction needed to preserve the ideals of freedom are all but gone. This is the baseline definition of learned helplessness.

If you are one of the 50% on the federal handout welfare list, most of you, certainly not all, are contributing to the demise of civilization as know it. The government is the new God, it is trying to become the purveyor of truth and the source of all wants and needs. What the American sheeple do not realize is that by allowing the government to provide the basic needs for so many of our people is a kind of an appetizer, while, we the people, are the main course. This is why the Internet, as we know it, will soon be gone because you cannot be allowed to know the truth!

America has been conquered by the five megabanks and most of us are totally unaware that we have been subjugated and are in the process of being domesticated by organizations such as the TSA and their invasive policies which teach Americans that your body does not belong to you, it belongs to the government. Yet, Americans cannot attend a public event in which we are not constantly reminded how free we are because of the sacrifice of our troops (which are now under the control of NATO and the United Nations as they serve the corporations). As far as the Eloi knew, they were also living under the illusion that they were free. The Eloi, the same as Americans, had been conditioned to mindlessly obey authority even when it would lead to their destruction.

In the Well’s novel, the main character, George, had not been a product of this conditioning and descended into the Morlock’s lair and defeated the Morlocks. Through his courage and determination, George showed the dumbed-down Eloi how to defend themselves against certain death and how to actually fight for freedom. Surprisingly, the Morlocks were relatively easy to defeat when they were forcefully opposed.

H. G. Wells was an avowed globalist. He was the lover of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the baby murder factory we call Planned Parenthood. In the book, Wells clearly laid out his vision for the domination of humanity by shadowy underground groups and individuals. Unfortunately for humanity, there is no George who is going to show in the near term and defeat the Morlock (i.e. globalists).

Learned Helplessness In America

Today, we lay down in the face of the abject criminality of our government. We accept GMO’s, chemtrails, CPS sponsored child sex trafficking, the theft of our mortgages, the murder of dissidents, constant surveillance, unsafe medicines and foods, and the privatization of our most vital resources which are being priced out of our reach (e.g. water) and now we are soon going to be experiencing the loss of the truth in the form of the free Internet.

We have the ability to fight back (phase one). We have done it before (e.g. Revolutionary War, Civil War). However, this was before the omnipresent MSM came on the scene.

We are conditioned by an apathetic Congress that our opinion does not matter (phase two). The media tells us we are the most free nation on the earth.  As a case in point, we honor our veterans and subsequently let the VA murder them. We are conditioned by these factors and the corporate controlled media that our actions can make no difference.

Conclusion

We sit primed today to accept everything our government does to us on behalf of their corporate controllers (phase three). The end result of our passivity is depopulation.

As my friend Jim Marrs says, there are more of us than there are of them and we could overcome them, if we would just turn off the great programmer of human behavior, the television. Jim is right, but too many of us love our servitude and we have embraced cognitive dissonance, bystander apathy and now learned helplessness as a set of national personality traits which have become ingrained throughout our population.

There are certain actions which can undo these psychological bounds of enslavement and when I have an afternoon to waste, I will write about them. I have not written about them here today because because I do not want to confuse a factual message with a fantasy ideal that most people do not have the courage to embrace.

HG Wells wrote our epitaph in 1895. However, instead of marching into futuristic bomb shelters, our people will passively ride the Wackenhut bus to the FEMA camps.

Ostrich Syndrome

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Many of my fellow citizens don’t have a clue as to what is actually happening to them, their freedoms or rights, or their very health … but the most damning consideration here is … most don’t want a, or pretend not to have a, clue!

Tell me just how clueless they can actually be when they know exactly what and who to avoid to keep themselves out of the governments eye, or off government lists of radicals, conspiracy theorists, possible domestic terrorists or no fly lists. The obvious answer is … to keep yourself off the governments radar … you must know what said government is looking for.

Enemies of the State

This brings to mind what I like to refer to as the “Ostrich Syndrome”, an affliction far too many in America suffer from via fear, apathy, complacency or complicity. No, Big Pharmaceutical has no drug or vaccine for this affliction, and the government’s prescription is More Propaganda forcing them into a heightened level of this syndrome.

Flanders and Swann – The Ostrich Song

We have all seen the pictures of an ostrich hiding its head in the ground to avoid discovery by a dangerous predator. Yet to make the decision to hide from an eminent danger, they first have to be aware, on some level, that the danger exists. Obviously this form of defense is worthless as hiding ones head only increases the danger to oneself because you cannot see the danger approaching, nor can you defend yourself from it. In essence this makes you a more opportune and  stationary target.

Those who feel they have nothing to fear if they are doing nothing wrong, or by avoiding the truths they are at least marginally aware of, they will keep themselves safe, are doomed by their display of passivity to be enslaved and used in any fashion a tyrant sees fit.

Fear of association

These are the people, try as we may, we cannot seem to reach to educate or awaken. These are the people who this tyranny has not influenced enough yet, and just maybe … These are the cannon fodder in any coming struggle.

America is on the verge of economic collapse, global war, and health disaster. We are perpetuating hostilities across the globe, our allies are deserting us in droves, our dollar is a paper tiger propped up by the military might the oligarchs who own this country wield, and our health has fallen from the best on this planet to what most would comfortably say is the worst, and all in about three generations.

If you finally wake up

What I present to you now is a plethora of information on the disaster America steadily drives toward, and who is driving the bus.

HINT: hiding your head in the sand WONT KEEP YOU SAFE !!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A $100,000,000,000,000 economic extinction level event is about to descend on America. D.U.M.B.S (Deep Underground Military Bases) are already being prepared (FACT) for the high level government officials, the military hierarchy and elites to ride out the massive civil unrest to closely follow this unavoidable event.

FEMA camps are ready across the country, and the unprecedented arming of government non-military forces (DHS, TSA, IRS, etc …) intended only for use against We The People is all but complete. This is not a guess but is easily substantiated … Please watch …

Habeas Corpus, Due Process, and so much more has gone up in smoke via the Patriot act, the NDAA and traitorous and unconstitutional Executive Orders.

Where were the congressional defenders of the constitution, the Supreme court push back, or the outcry from the mainstream media … crickets chirp … And now we live under an oligarchy (Princeton study), a Totalitarian government … Please watch …

Obama and his staunch anti-colonialist views instilled by his communist father and mentors in his formative years has lead to his egregious spending, bankrupting America (just about doubled national debt of all presidents before him combined). This is facilitating the redistribution of wealth away from America to the rest of the world and collapsing the US economy. Debt is Obama’s weapon for the redistribution of wealth away from America.

America has also inherited more enemies under Obama’s leadership than ever in our history, and we now back and support both monetarily and militarily some of the most radical Muslim factions in existence … Please watch …

This last video requires no introduction. This documentary lays out the plans for bringing America to her knees. A role our president was selected and groomed for by the caste who call themselves the elite.

These elitists have clearly stated that a New World Order cannot be instituted unless or until America (especially the powerful middle class) is first brought to her knees. A clear signal to the rest of the world that if the freedom loving and powerful Americans cannot hold out against the NWO … what chance do they have … Please watch …

Never before in the history of this great nation has America been attacked both from outside and within with such calculated tenacity and intention!

Today we as a nation stand on the very precipice of total collapse. This is not a theory, a joke, a lie or even an exaggeration … this is a fact that can be easily seen by any who …

Don’t have their head buried in the sand like …

Those Who Suffer, The Ostrich Syndrome !!!

The only choice

 

change

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

When you hit the play button on this outstanding and inspiring video please understand … This is not about the military or military power. This is not about politics or political power. This is not about wealth or the power of money. This is about humanity and the power of our hearts and souls … The absolute power to change the world for generations … for millions and maybe even billions.

That power is contained in each and every one of us, if we have the inner strength to call if forth … There isn’t one among us who cant take a lesson away from this great speech. But if you listen and come to the conclusion there was nothing here for you … I can all but guarantee you will have very little influence in helping to change this world …

So please take less than twenty minutes from your busy day and listen to some hard earned and well used wisdom, wisdom that may just navigate you onto the path of making a serious difference in a chaotic world in serious need of changing.

ConspiracyTheory-460

By Bernie Suarez

Remember when the fictitious notion of “conspiracy theorist” was supposed to represent the lone wolf weird lunatic in a dark basement? Believe it or not, this stereotype character never actually existed. That’s right, the basement lunatic conspiracy theorist was a fictional character invented by government, media and Hollywood (X-Files). The propaganda began at least a century ago, accelerated after the creation of the CIA and became more pronounced targeting American people after the JFK assassination as described in CIA document 1035-960. Specifically the techniques, which we see employed today all the time by mainstream media and CIA assets/online trolls, include:

*No significant new evidence has emerged which the [Warren] Commission did not consider.
*Critics usually overvalue particular items and ignore others.
*Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States.
*Critics have often been enticed by a form of intellectual pride: they light on some theory and fall in love with it.
*Oswald would not have been any sensible person’s choice for a co-conspirator.
*Such vague accusations as that “more than ten people have died mysteriously” [during the Warren Commission’s inquiry] can always be explained in some natural way e.g.: the individuals concerned have for the most part died of natural causes.

Today of course, we need only to remove the references to JFK in this document and insert the current issue of the time and this document comes to life nicely. Remember, government and it’s globalist masters sit around and have meetings to decide what topics will fall under the banner of “conspiracy theory” and which will not. To anyone wide awake it’s much simpler to understand it this way: If a story or accusation interferes with the final new world order plans then it’s a “conspiracy”, if it doesn’t then it’s a different point of view or a debate.

The first thing everyone should understand about conspiracy theories is that you don’t get to decide what topics fall under this category, they do. And because they (government) decide, we’ve now seen the subjective, fictitious, propaganda based definition of “conspiracy theorist” morph dramatically over the last few decades. As mentioned before, we were first led to believe that conspiracy theorists were lunatics in basements separated from society, claiming things that were not proven while actually being wrong about everything. These people were supposed to have been essentially mentally diseased.

The conspiracy theorist then evolved into anyone who questioned 9/11 or any other new world order related false flag event. For years CIA’s mainstream media had worked hard to give the perception that “conspiracy theorist” represented a tiny percentage of Americans. But as the years went by, millions all over the U.S. and the world started waking up and now the government and its media mouthpiece started feeling the pressure. The dilemma was and still is, how to portray this growing number of awakened individuals/”conspiracy theorists” as an insignificant small group of people while at the same time adding more and more people to the group by deliberately expanding the topics that make you a conspiracy theorist.

The dilemma of this situation was finally addressed by CIA’s Newsweek in a desperate article by Kurt Eichenwald May of 2014 entitled “The Plots to Destroy America“. In the article, Eichenwald, with seeming foreknowledge of the Measles vaccine dilemma that was coming later in the year as a result of CDC whistleblower Dr William W Thompson’s testimony admitting the Measles vaccine link to autism in African American children, had this to say about the measles (exposed) vaccine:

In 2008, no one in America caught measles and 13,278 people contracted whooping cough. By 2013, measles infected at least 276 people in the U.S. and there were more than 24,000 cases of whooping cough. Medical experts attribute this trend to declining numbers of people being vaccinated, in large part fueled by a belief that doctors and pharmaceutical companies are hiding the dangers of immunizations to protect profits, even though earnings in this niche are so comparatively small that six out of seven companies have dropped out of the business in the past 35 years. Now, because of this false belief advanced by scientific frauds and celebrities, vaccine-preventable diseases that were once on the brink of extinction are roaring back.

Eichenwald rolls on explaining:

George W. Bush murdered thousands by orchestrating 9/11. Barack Obama is a Kenyan national and holds the presidency illegally. Education standards developed by state governors are part of an anti-Christian communist plot that will turn children gay. Unemployment rates and the reported numbers for Obamacare sign-ups are lies engineered by the White House. Water fluoridation doesn’t prevent cavities in children and has been adopted for a range of nefarious purposes. And on and on they go.

Conspiracy theories have been woven into the fabric of American society since before the signing of the Constitution. But what was once dismissed as the amusing ravings of the tin-foil-hat crowd has in recent years crossed a threshold, experts say, with delusions, fictions and lunacy now strangling government policies and creating national health risks. “These kinds of theories have the effect of completely distorting any rational discussion we can have in this country,’’ says Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center who recently wrote a report on the impact of what is known as the Agenda 21 conspiracy. “They are having a real impact now.”

Experts say the number and significance of conspiracy theories are reaching levels unheard-of in recent times, in part because of ubiquitous and faster communications offered by Internet chat rooms, Twitter and other social media. “Conspiracy narratives are more common in public discourse than they were previously,’’ says Eric Oliver, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago who has published research on the phenomenon. “We seem to have crossed a threshold.”

The fears about Agenda 21 are a prime example. The name refers to a nonbinding statement of intent signed in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush and 177 other world leaders. The idea was simple: Under the auspices of the U.N., those countries expressed their interest in managing urban development and land-use policies in ways that minimized the impact on the environment. At the time, mainstream conservative and liberal politicians considered the concept to be fairly inconsequential.

As can be seen, the article identifies such a wide spectrum of beliefs under the new “conspiracy theory” umbrella that one might suspect this could arguably represent 75-99% of Americans. The list is long and includes anyone who doesn’t agree with Agenda 21, Common Core, the Bin Laden death hoax, the dangers of cell phones and more. So many are the topics that the average American could and would potentially find at least one belief to agree with on the list, thus officially making them a “conspiracy theorist”.

The only strategy Eichenwald and CIA fall back on is the notion that- yes, we admit a lot of people are suffering from the mental disease of conspiracy theories (translation: waking up), and because this large amount of people (who are waking up) are starting to represent a possible majority, they are a “danger” to America (translation: The new world order plans). Thus in this article the globalist and their CIA approved writer are on the one hand admitting that everyone is waking up, while at the same time still appealing to their audience that essentially everyone is crazy and dangerous but you can still be “normal” by obeying.

This is proof that a lot more people are awake than the media is willing to admit. Sadly, the ongoing agenda of CIA’s mainstream media and government is not letting up by any means in 2015 and beyond as can be seen by the media almost psychopathic attack on those who want to seek a healthy lifestyle.

We are regularly now seeing those who DON’T want to ingest Fluoride into their bodies accused of being conspiracy nuts. Anyone who understands the compounds in vaccines admitted by the CDC and doesn’t want those toxins to go into their body is now a conspiracy theorist nut. Anyone who doesn’t want to eat genetically modified organisms and damage their own DNA, or even take the chance of damaging their own DNA is now a conspiracy theorist. Just the element of not having faith in corporate cronies and dirty lying corrupt politicians is enough to get you on the conspiracy theorist list.

The definition of conspiracy theorist has in fact reached new levels never imagined by the average person. Simply wanting to eat only natural food and not take in any known toxins into your body of any kind (above and beyond vaccines), according to CIA’s mainstream media and government is enough to get you labeled as a conspiracy theorist nut.

Yes, we are finally reaching a point in history where it is almost officially impossible to not be a conspiracy theorist unless you agree to being poisoned! This is what happens when a state who has open plans for a new world order and massive stated depopulation goals can control reality with their ministry of truth propaganda media.

If there is anything good to take from all this it is that with stupid moves like this the corporate media will hopefully turn more and more people against it. Obviously everyone wants to live a happy healthy life. Why would we not? If there is even a tiny chance that genetically modified foods and vaccines with known toxins in them could harm you, why would we not want to exercise our own personal judgment on whether we want this for our kids, our loved ones and ourselves??

Reason for hope

The pure insanity of the new world order psychopaths is truly upon us and we are seeing them in action in real-time. So many of us are awake and we all know we will never go along with any of this monkey business. Our duty is therefore to continue waking up as many people as possible. Our voices are strong and getting stronger every day while their voices (the mainstream media) are dying. Spread the word, tell your family and friends they are all “conspiracy theorists” if they believe in health. Let’s make sure this is the (hopefully) final Intelligence blunder of the globalist. The blunder of thinking they could take over our own bodies, tell us what to eat and even what to inject in our own bodies. Hopefully the magnitude of this personal psychological insult will be the final straw to break the new world orders’ back.

Hopefully humanity is observing, reading, learning and taking notes. We are all now getting a blueprint for tyranny. We’ve seen all the steps in slow motion. We now know all their moves. Let’s take advantage of this bold yet ridiculous expansion of “conspiracy theorist” and see how far we can take the awakening process this time. Most important of all, let’s not forget that this battle of information does have an ending date. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for the Orwellian empire of deceit that seeks permanent world power.

allegiance

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Increasingly, we see Hollywood and MSM television being used to propagandize the American public. In the case  of the new NBC hit series, Allegiance, a pair of very strong political messages are preparing America for some very dire times ahead.

The show airs in the last hour of prime time on Thursday nights. NBC has made it the trailer to the very popular show, Blacklist. This is clearly a move designed to enhance rating thus increase the amount of Americans that will be reached with the desired psyops message.

Show Synopsis

allegiance-2-alexAllegiance is an intense drama that revolves around the O’Connor family and their son, a rookie CIA data analyst prodigy, Alex (played by Gavin Stenhouse). Alex is a young and idealistic who is fluent in Russian and specializes in Russian affairs. Unbeknownst to Alex, both of his parents and his sister are part of a long-term dormant Russian sleeper cell that has just been reactivated. Alex’s birth came after the implantation of the family into America by the Russian SVR.

allegiance 2 katyaYears ago, Alex’s mother, Russian-born Katya (played by Hope Davis), was tasked by the KGB to recruit American businessman Mark O’Connor (played by Scott Cohen) as a spy, and the two fell in love. A deal was struck that as long as Katya remained an asset for Russian intelligence, she would be allowed to marry Mark and move to America. After years of living in America, and enjoying the good life and without hearing a word from Moscow, both parents had mistakenly thought they had escaped. Now it seems the new version of Mother Russia has one more mission, which involves turning her CIA employed data analyst son, Alex, into a spy for the Russian SVR. The SVR (i.e. the KGB replacement for Russian Intelligence) has re-enlisted the entire family into service as they plan a massive Russian led terrorist designed to occur in the United States which is designed to bring America to its knees. For these ambivalent parents, the choice is clear, they can betray their country, or risk the lives of their entire family and be killed by the SVR.

A Telling Exchange In Episode Two

allegiance 2 russian military meetingIn episode two, in an SVR briefing about a planned terrorist attack on American soil led by the SVR, the briefer made the following statement:

“The American economy is a paper tiger. Cheap energy, Wall Street gambling and propaganda are the only things propping it up. This operation will answer the American aggression, forcefully, collapsing their economy in a single blow. American influence over the world will erode. And we will be able to operate in the world as we wish, in Ukraine, Europe and beyond. We are calling the operation “Black Dagger”.

In response to that bold statement a Russian General, being briefed, stood and labeled the plan as “madness”. The general continued his objection to this terrorist plot on American soil by saying, “This plan will kill thousands of Americans, tens of thousands”.

The presenter of the plot replied to the General’s objections by saying “Madness is the loss of Russian sovereignty. Madness is American sanctions preventing our ability to access our own bank accounts, even in Switzerland. This is madness. We can do nothing as America strangles us. We can do nothing, or, we can stand and fight back”.

The General responded, “There is a line, and Black Dagger crosses that line”.

The presenter stated “We are merely answering sanctions with sanctions”. The General stated, “American sanctions don’t have a blast radius“.

This last statement is clearly designed to evoke fear and anger toward the Russians and increase the belief that the Russians will force us to fight them in World War III, or we in the United States will face eventual destruction.

Implications

There is a clear intent on the part of this NBC show to prepare the American viewing audience for the inevitability of the need to go to war with Russia. The Russians are portrayed as ruthless thugs who think nothing of murdering tens of thousands of innocent Americans and that message is clearly embedded within the Allegiance storyline.

This is very telling since the new war on the CIA-created ISIS is ready to commence and the moment that U.S. troops cross the Syrian border in pursuit of ISIS, we risk Russian nuclear intervention, which Putin has already threatened. When ISIS stops playing the role of temporary enemy, the real enemy, Russia, will emerge and World War III will commence. Hence, the predictive psyops of the show.

There is a secondary goal connected to Allegiance and it is the same goal as the popular show, State of Affairs, and that goal is the restoration of the bad public image enjoyed by the CIA. In both shows, the CIA is portrayed as being conspicuously brave and honest to a fault and every CIA agent always puts their country first. The CIA always put their country first? Sometimes we forget our own history. The CIA created al Qaeda when they were the Mujahedeen freedom fighters in opposing the Soviet invasion in 1979. And as I have covered extensively in this week’s articles, the CIA created ISIS with the help of U.S. military equipment which was illegally left behind in Iraq.

Conclusion

Sometimes, when one wants to know what the bad guys are up to, all one has to do is simply look for what is hiding in plain sight. I have included several Allegiance show trailers so that the readers can examine the evidence and make up their own mind as to the psyops purpose of the show.

swirl-optical-illusion

By: Sigmund Fraud

“In prison, illusions can offer comfort.” – Nelson Mandela

For a magician to fool his audience his deceit must go unseen, and to this end he crafts an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped.

Maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, however, is often more comforting than acknowledging the magician’s secrets.

We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we are indoctrinated into this authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race, we are trained that certain aspects of our society are untouchable truths, and that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred. 

Psychopaths disempower people in this way. They blind us with never ceasing barrages of suggestions and absolutes that are aimed at shattering self-confidence and confidence in the future. 

Bansky, the revered and elusive revolutionary street artist, once commented:

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.” – Banksy

Advertising is just the tip of the iceberg. When we look further we see that the overall organization of life is centered around the pursuit of illusions and automatic obedience to institutions and ideas which are not at all what they seem. We are in a very real sense enslaved. Many call this somewhat intangible feeling of oppression ‘the matrix,’ a system of total control that invades the mind, programming individuals to pattern themselves in accordance with a mainstream conformist version of reality, no matter how wicked it gets.

The grandest of the illusions which keep us enslaved to the matrix, the ones that have so many of us still entranced, are outlined below for your consideration.

1. The Illusion of Law, Order and Authority

For so many of us, following the law is considered a moral obligation, and many of us gladly do so even though corruption, scandal, and wickedness repeatedly demonstrate that the law is plenty flexible for those who have the muscle to bend it. Police brutality and police criminality is rampant in the US, the courts favor the wealthy, and we can longer even lead our lives privately thanks to the intrusion of state surveillance. And all the while the illegal and immoral Orwellian permanent war rages on in the background of life, murdering and destroying whole nations and cultures.

The social order is not what it seems, for it is entirely predicated on conformity, obedience and acquiescence which are enforced by fear of violence. History teaches us again and again that the law is just as often as not used as an instrument of oppression, social control and plunder, and any so-called authority in this regard is false, hypocritical, and unjust.

When the law itself does not follow the law, there is no law, there is no order, and there is no justice. The pomp and trappings of authority are merely a concealment of the truth that the current world order is predicated on control, not consent.

2. The Illusion of Prosperity and Happiness

Adorning oneself in expensive clothes and trinkets, and amassing collections of material possessions that would be the envy of any 19th century monarch has become a substitute for genuine prosperity. Maintaining the illusion of prosperity, though, is critical to our economy as it is, because its foundation is built on consumption, fraud, credit and debt. The banking system itself has been engineered from the top down to create unlimited wealth for some while taxing the eternity out of the rest of us.

True prosperity is a vibrant environment and an abundance of health, happiness, love, and relationships. As more people come to perceive material goods as the form of self-identification in this culture, we slip farther and farther away from the experience of true prosperity.

3. The Illusion of Choice and Freedom

Read between the lines and look at the fine print, we are not free, not by any intelligent standard. Freedom is about having choice, yet in today’s world, choice has come to mean a selection between available options, always from within the confines of a corrupt legal and taxation system and within the boundaries of culturally accepted and enforced norms.

Just look no further than the phony institution of modern democracy to find a shining example of false choices appearing real. Two entrenched, corrupt, archaic political parties are paraded as the pride and hope of the nation, yet third party and independent voices are intentionally blocked, ridiculed and plowed under.

The illusion of choice and freedom is a powerful oppressor because it fools us into accepting chains and short leashes as though they were the hallmarks of liberty.

Multiple choice is different than freedom, it is easy servitude.

4. The Illusion of Truth

Truth has become a touchy subject in our culture, and we’ve been programmed to believe that ‘the‘ truth comes from the demigods of media, celebrity, and government. If the TV declares something to be true, then we are heretics to believe otherwise.

In order to maintain order, the powers that be depend our acquiescence to their version of the truth. While independent thinkers and journalists continually blow holes in the official versions of reality, the illusion of truth is so very powerful that it takes a serious personal upheaval to shun the cognitive dissonance needed to function in a society that openly chases false realities.

5. The Illusion of Time

They say that time is money, but this is a lie. Time is your life. Your life is an ever-evolving manifestation of the now. Looking beyond the five sense world, where we have been trained to move in accordance with the clock and the calendar, we find that the spirit is eternal, and that the each individual soul is part of this eternity.

The big deception here is the reinforcement of the idea that the present moment is of little to no value, that the past is something we cannot undo or ever forget, and that the future is intrinsically more important than both the past and the present. This carries our attention away from what it actually happening right now and directs it toward the future. Once completely focused on what is to come rather than what is, we are easy prey to advertisers and fear-pimps who muddy our vision of the future with every possible worry and concern imaginable.

We are happiest when life doesn’t box us in, when spontaneity and randomness gives us the chance to find out more about ourselves. Forfeiting the present moment in order to fantasize about the future is a trap. The immense, timeless moments of spiritual joy that are found in quiet meditation are proof that time is a construct of the mind of humankind, and not necessarily mandatory for the human experience.

If time is money, then life can be measured in dollars. When dollars are worth less, so is life. This is total deception, because life is, in truth, absolutely priceless.

6. The Illusion of Separateness

On a strategic level, the tactic of divide and conquer is standard operating procedure for authoritarians and invading armies, but the illusion of separateness runs even deeper than this.

We are programmed to believe that as individuals we are in competition with everyone and everything around us, including our neighbors and even mother nature. Us vs. them to the extreme. This flatly denies the truth that life on this planet is infinitely inter-connected. Without clean air, clean water, healthy soil, and a vibrant global sense of community we cannot survive here.

While the illusion of separateness comforts us by gratifying the ego and and offering a sense of control, in reality it only serves to enslave and isolate us.

Conclusion

The grand illusions mentioned here have been staged before us as a campaign to encourage blind acquiescence to the machinations of the matrix. In an attempt to dis-empower us, they demand our conformity and obedience, but we must not forget that all of this is merely an elaborate sales pitch. They can’t sell what we don’t care to buy.

In one corner we have the criminal banksters who, in concert with the criminal ruling class, have created policies that allow them to steal as much of our wealth as can be done until enough people cry foul. In another corner we have the criminal, treasonous NSA, once again working in concert with the criminal ruling class to steal all of our personal information and create a profile of our lives to determine if we are guilty of some crime that has not yet been committed. In still another corner we have the local police, working in concert, not only with the ruling class but with the military industrial complex in order to ensure we tow the line and don’t fight back once enough of us have determined that we have had our fill. In the last corner are the doctors and insurance companies who, work in concert with the ruling class to keep us hooked on their drugs or sedated so that we are unable to rally against these other three.

Seems like a pattern going on there, or is it just me?

Let’s take a slightly closer look at what is actually being perpetrated against us by the ruling class working in concert with corporate America. Since I don’t really have time for theories let’s focus on the crimes that are on going and I will provide you with links in order for you to continue doing some research. These people have become so brazen that it is very simple to expose them and the crimes against humanity that have been unleashed and are currently making there way to your bank account, your cell phone and computer, your neighborhood and your local hospital. Of course, none of this would be possible without some form of camouflage, we’ll call it TV sports, “reality” TV and clown shows like the “State of the Union Address”. Perfect cover in order to keep people distracted, off balance and watching the left hand while the right hand is perpetrating the crime.

In 2012 the banksters needed a new crime in order to be able to steal your money. The old crimes have been working really well but I guess they just needed a new form of entertainment. So, they ran a test on the tiny island nation of Cyprus. Never heard of Cyprus? Well, it’s a tiny island located between Turkey and Lebanon.

Cyprus location
image credit – cyprusisland.net

There it is, see that small dot in the ocean between Turkey and Lebanon on the right side? That’s Cyprus.

The banking criminals in Europe, working with the banking criminals in the United States devised a plan to steal as much of the wealth from the citizens of Cyprus as possible without creating a war with Russia. You see, Russia uses the Cyprus banking system to offshore some of their criminal drug and illegal weapons money. Former KGB, now “entrepreneurs” need a place to keep some of their booty and they had been using Cyprus for this purpose. Similar to how the criminals in the United States use the Cayman Islands to stash some of their booty.

It seems the situation in Cyprus was one of the first real attacks on Putin and the Russians in the ongoing sanctions, currency, resources and soon-to-be, hot war. That, however, is a story for another day.

Recently I sat down with Brandon Turbeville to discuss how social media was developed as a tool for the CIA and NSA to collect our personal information. (Please bear in mind that whenever you hear NSA you are actually hearing CIA; they are the same agency.) I will never believe that people like Mark Zuckerberg set out with the intention of creating a personal data information gathering hub, but through corruption and willingness, social media has become the latest point of gathering your personal information. Did you Tweet who you had lunch with today? What about the movie you went to see? This is how a profile is built around you and your life. What about those adorable puppies someone was giving away in front of the grocery store? Upload those photos?

This actually began with the advent of the cell phone, with it’s handy-dandy built in camera. Did anyone ever stop to ask why cameras now had the ability to make phone calls? What about so-called “smart-phones”? Now there’s a tracking device for all!! You too, can be tracked to within a few feet of our location in a nanosecond while providing pictorial reference points. Sounds awesome! The really cool part is the phone doesn’t have to be on–it just works and the camera can be turned on without your knowledge!! How cool is that?!

As you can see, and the NSA/CIA can see, hear and track, your cell phone and social media (home based computer) have become weapons to be used against you. Are there any policies on the floor or being drafted in any legislative house to stop this ongoing nightmare? What can you do? Just another act in the grand concert we find ourselves unwillingly participating.

Did you local newscast provide you with the images and details of the latest SWAT Team raid from this past week? Did this story run multiple times or were there enough SWAT raids to have images and details on three or four nights? Everyday in the United States these thugs in uniform are raiding, maiming and killing innocent people. They do, on occasion catch a bad guy or two, but this situation has gotten way out-of-hand. Don’t take my word for it. Take a look at this from the CATO Institute.

An Epidemic of “Isolated Incidents”

“If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern.”
—Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006.

An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper “Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids,” by Radley Balko.

Is this really necessary to enforce the law? Are militarized police there to “protect and serve”? If so, who are they protecting and serving? Certainly not the children that have been flashed-bombed to death in their crib. Certainly not the all the “innocents”, “sick” and “doctors” listed on the map above. Not one of these people were protected from the criminals in black hats and carrying automatic weapons.

Speaking of militarized weapons. The local police departments throughout the United States have been receiving weapons, equipment, vehicles, including helicopters, from all branches of the military. Do we really need armored vehicles in the streets to serve a warrant or arrest a burglar? Seriously.

Take a look at this article from the NYTimes that describes the weapons flowing into your neighborhood from the war in Iraq or Afghanistan or one of the other war zones from around the world

What Military Gear Your Local Police Department Bought

The Pentagon-to-police transfer program is not new. Congress created it during the drug war, as a way to increase police firepower in the fight against drug gangs. But since 9/11, as the Pentagon geared up to fight two wars, then drew down as those wars ended, the amount of available military surplus has ballooned.

Now, after a week of confrontation between protesters in Ferguson and heavily armed police, members of Congress are criticizing the trickle down of military gear.

State and local police departments obtain some of their military-style equipment through a free Defense Department program created in the early 1990s. While the portion of their gear that comes from the program is relatively small (most of it is paid for by the departments or through federal grants), detailed data from the Pentagon illustrates how ubiquitous such equipment has become. Highlighted counties have received guns, grenade launchers, vehicles, night vision or body armor through the program since 2006.

Please click here to better understand the depth and breadth of weapons in your neighborhood. There is an interactive map that details specifically what the local police in your city have obtained.

Now that you have been robbed, profiled and beaten to half-to-death it’s time to head over the local hospital or clinic to see if one of the doctors is able to save your life. People intent on killing that have been supplied with flash bombs and automatic rifles doesn’t usually make for a good outcome. Better get to the hospital as quickly as possible.

What do we find there–OBombaCare!! Can you say eugenics? I knew you could! You say death panels are not part of the program because you read on “Snoops” that it’s not true? Well, do you remember Jonathan Gruber calling the American people “stupid”? Gruber was the architect of ObombaCare and the early stages explained to Obomba how to get the citizens on board with the whole program. Don’t tell them anything and just make it happen!! Here is what Gruber said in 2009 about death panels under ObombaCare

“Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control,” [Gruber said]

Gruber also said that the only way to control costs is to effectively deny treatment. “The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can’t have something they want. It’s about telling patients, ‘That surgery doesn’t do any good, so if you want it you have to pay the full cost.’”

In the Wesley J Smiths article he goes on explain:

And guess who decides what “doesn’t do any good” means? Bioethicists–who believe that some lives have greater value than others–and Obamacare technocrats.

What happens if a person is denied care? Well, depending on what is being treated, probably nothing good, probably something really bad in fact, you know, something like death.

Well, there you have it. Just another ray of sunshine brought to you by those wonderful people that call themselves “leaders”. If you want to call me a “dooms-dayer” or “nay-sayer”, go ahead. Please keep it mind The Daily Coin doesn’t create the news, it only delivers the news. If you click any of the links above you will see for yourself that not one word of this article is not backed up with other peoples research, information and hard work. We merely report the news; what you do with it is up to you. Only you can spread brushfires of freedom.

Patriotic hands 1

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Before you can accomplish a task you must first strategize, choreograph and make contingencies for undesired scenarios … then take Action in a Controlled and progressive fashion to facilitate the required goals … The destruction of America from within is no Exception, actually it could quite possibly be the Rule.

The American people throughout our history have resisted change, conflict and outright war. It took direct acts of aggression against We The People to facilitate enough backing for our leaders to justify entering into The Spanish American war, WWI, WWII, the Vietnam war, the invasion of Afghanistan, etc….Remember the words of Admiral Yamamoto proclaiming after the attack on Pearl Harbor, “I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant” (emphasis on the word awakened).

But is this reality or incidents (false flag operations) contrived and perpetrated by a few all-powerful elites who own this government and in fact rule America and a vast majority of this planet, to bend the will of the American people and utilize the most powerful military force this planet has ever known to achieve their personal goals? Look around you today and see the ultimate control mechanism of fear being smothered over the American population once again to extract compliance and support for even more imperialistic warmongering across the globe.

Kill one million

We all learned of the ultimate evil of tyrannical leaders and governments such as Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Stalin’s USSR, Hitler’s Nazi Germany, Mao’s China and so many more, who through the exercise of tyranny and imperialism, sought to impose their will over the lives of unsuspecting masses, resulting in the slaughter of untold millions of innocent people …. Yet this country enforces its will or wishes on countless nations via the most powerful war machine this planet has ever seen or through military or economic blackmail … or both … Please explain to me how this government is so different or innocent of the same mechanisms of tyranny?

Collateral Damage 2Today, we as a people who once resisted any type of conflict, are now mentally repressed under a monolithic government responsible for having killed directly or indirectly at least three million people, and destroyed the lives of untold millions more. The vast majority (by our government’s own accounting-well over 90%) of this carnage consists of innocent human beings never having been of any threat to America … Collateral Damage.

But for me the worst consideration is to try to understand how most of this planet now sees America, how they see us as bullies, tyrants and liars, caught with our hands in the cookie jar once too often. We are hated, feared and the butt of many nasty local jokes … a far cry from Camelot or the beacon of freedom for the world as we used to represent.

The part of this that borders on insanity or just plain ridiculous is this is emanating from a country that professes to value personal freedom, national sovereignty and self determination, REALLY … ??? … Just how the hell does that work ??? Where is the conscience and moral fortitude of We The people? Because in America if you fire the boss for ineptitude, well … Look in the mirror … like it or not!

We as a people don’t push back against this imperialistic march across the world only to suit an elitist agenda, but at our cost in burden and freedoms. The involvement of Americans today is nowhere near the engagement we experienced as a society during the Vietnam era or even to some extent in the Bush era. We don’t fire our leaders who allow or ignore it. We don’t impeach those who, through the wishes of their true global masters, would advance it in a perpetual cycle, illegally. Hell, in the case of most of us, we don’t even discuss it! Has the voice of We The People been neutered?  The American conscience, the past guide to actions we condoned by our government as a people … is on life support …

Tyranny1

Fifty years from now, when the children of our children study the history of this once great and admired country, will we be the USSR, Red China or Nazi Germany of our time? You may push back and say this is not so … and I will say WAKE THE HELL UP!

By our founding documents We The People are sovereign and bear the task of policing and maintaining the safety, health, vitality and the ability for this great country to continue … and we have ceded that responsibility for far too long!

Those who would put blame, must first recognize their own.

We The People have proven to be the weak link in the chain of politics and power in America by the hands of both the elitist perpetrators propaganda behemoth, and to a larger extent … ourselves via apathy, complacency or complicity.

This video is BLATANT, RAW, IN YOUR FACE and it is SPOT ON! Watch it if you dare and if you come away with the same imperialistic viewpoint, content on allowing a few greedy elite with their own global agenda to write the future history of America, we who are awake and truly aware will know for sure where and with whom you stand!

STAND UP TOGETHER, SPEAK IN A UNIFIED VOICE & LIVE FREE !!!

American Free Press Photoshop by Ken LaRive

By TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive

At least once a week something seemingly out of my control comes over me, and I have to write something down. It wells up inside, infiltrates and permeates my mind in the middle of the night, and the formula is tossed like a subconscious tennis game to completion.

The time is 06:30, and the golden glow of the sun can be seen through the trees from my office window, growing by the moment on a perfectly blue sky. And as I look to fill this blank screen with these thoughts, a dread fills me… It sits inside as a kind of frustrated wonder, as what I want to say might just be beyond my ability. Thoughts so profound, I just don’t know where to start… and I know that most likely what I say will make little difference in the broader spectrum…

The block of sliver tags…

Yesterday, I saw a photograph of a war memorial where the dog-tags of every man who died in Vietnam were suspended from a ceiling on filaments. From the photographer’s vantage point of just a few yards away, it looked like a large block of silver, topped with vanilla icing.

Men commented on this photograph on Face Book. All seemed to think themselves patriots in one form or another, but with far different perspectives in the viewing… Some looked at it with pride, a display that indicated the comradeship of men in arms, men who fought together as one. Others viewed it in incomprehensible wonder… Others in awe and reverence… And others still, expressed gratitude for their service, noting that they had paid the ultimate price to advance our freedoms… And all, including myself, felt the utmost respect for these men, our brothers… I was, however, the only one there who expressed that this war memorial reflected the horror of war. Horror, for the loss of our humanity, without reason. It was the thought that war had no good reason that set them off…

I saw there, over sixty thousand men, my brothers, who died for nothing that could be positively defined… and when I asked the question, “What did these men die for?” no one could tell me. Not one. One stated that it was to fight Communism, and yet could not define that word when questioned… And yet, they all collectively reveled in a patriotism that could not be denied. And then, one of them questioned my loyalty to America, which stimulated another to call me a traitor, and another said I was a “Freak’n Liberal.” And yet, though I asked the question again, could not get a definitive answer. I had to withdraw, and it has haunted me ever since to understand it…

Traitors and cowards…

I’m fixing to be sixty-six in a couple of months, and I am no longer the wide-eyed and trusting boy who left his family and home for a place he had only recently found on a map. I was 57 on the draft in 1969. There were men all around me who were refusing to go, and some gave up everything to go to Mexico or Canada… and at the time I thought they were traitors, cowards… but I no longer think this.

I grew up in service, and learned a lot about myself and the world. God knows I needed some form of structure living in that virtual hell-hole called the inner city of New Orleans. I thought it was normal to have six murders over a weekend. I thought it was normal that the black man and white man would fight, and the destruction of property from City Park to Pontchartrain Beach was the transition for a greater good. And I realize I was conditioned from a young age to accept it…but I no longer do.

I looked at that twinkling silver cube that must have taken a stupendous effort to create, and the true horror of it gripped my heart and soul. I saw the lives of men who would now be grandfathers, husbands, sons and brothers, just like me. And the loss, the monumental loss, filled me with the greatest revulsion. When I participated in war, at 19, the questions I have today were indeed asked then, but the true gravity of the situation was not understood. It took fifty or more years of living to do it, and I’m still trying… as somewhere along the way, from learning the pain of death of a loved one, changing a diaper in the middle of the night, to working hard offshore for my family… somewhere in the middle of it all, as I grappled to find my self-worth and God in my life, I developed an empathy based on Love. An empathy based on life experiences, something that is lacking at 19… an element of immaturity sorely needed for the war machine. You see, they don’t require men like me to war, because I would ask the question why. And yes, I would die for this country, no doubt, but I will not die so that some man, or a corporation, will get rich… Before I pull the trigger on a fellow human being, I must know why. And I don’t think that is too hard to ask!

I could not understand my feelings back then, dull and incomprehensible feelings that welled up in me. I grappled to understand the hate-filled glares on the faces of people at the airport, and some had even spit in our faces… I tried to understand the man who wrote obscenities on the bombs lighting up our horizon, and the people being incinerated by Monsanto’s Napalm. And through it all, deep in the quick, I felt the yearning and lonely solace of my country so far away, marking the days for my return… And as I closed my eyes in the night, in a room of forty other men, I was haunted by the memories of the life I had left behind… I had hugged my girlfriend around the waste while sitting at her kitchen table that last night… my arms held her tight as my head settled on her stomach… And like the man I wanted to be, swallowed back my tears, my greatest fears, and told her I’d see her soon… I told her not to worry. I laughed it off, and told her a guy who was raised in New Orleans could survive anything. But the body bags were already coming home… the football hero, a neighbor’s nephew, the young boy who had worked at the meat market…

I remember the seven people who told me goodbye as I boarded the plane the next morning, and saw them standing at the window from my seat… I saw my sister Cindy, and the love of my life, Maddy, and both were crying. I could never forget this.

We have all been betrayed in this life. Tragedy has stolen loving lives from us, painful relationships that dissolved, and yet we come away from these pangs with a new understanding and insight. But in war… this is another matter…

As I now travel to the Veteran’s Administration for checkups… There are many men there suffering from what is called PTSD, Post Traumatic Syndrome. They saw things, did things, things that they never could justify, and so can not forget. There were horrors so great it follows them throughout their lives… But to me, it seems that those who come away from that experience with some form of justification, are more able to cope… like the men commenting on that war memorial. They used words like justice, honor, good, and right, to keep their sanity. You see, without words such as these, the loss would be just too much to comprehend, too much to reason. But for me, I find my solace in my unswerving need to find truth. My sanity, my very salvation, is this need. There are those I have known who have had faith, and are now but empty shells, and no matter how I try, my words bounce back unrealized…

Facts I consider today that I had no clue about at nineteen…

  1. The military industrial complex, that we hear about, grew large enough in WW2 to win the war. It was so lucrative, so big, it refused to dissipate, and we were warned by one of our greatest hero, General Eisenhower, that it would control our country if left unchecked. He was right. Find his warning here. From that time til now we have been in one war after another, and they get around this Constitutional breach by calling it a police action. When there is a lull in the tide of war, another fear is soon promoted, a new enemy created, and threats even from factions inside of our own government are manifested, like our right to bear arms, our open borders, or government spying, and out of this fear we buy every weapon and box of ammunition within reach. Very profitable, and pure genius! Unfortunately, few see through this…
  2. International banking cartels vie to control the world first by war, and then by reconstruction. They care nothing about anything but profit and survival, and make money no matter who wins, as they back both sides.
  3. Industry once found in America are put overseas in places conquered in a variety of methods, some by war, and others economically. These businesses are not regulated as they would be here, nor are there any viable labor laws. For all intent and purpose, they utilize the populous there as slave labor. Prices can be kept low, and commodities sold back to us, the largest consumers on the planet, accepted by us even with low quality design and workmanship. They are intentionally configured to break one month after warranty…. we live in a throw away society for a reason…. It is designed that way, and it is very lucrative… and that is the true reason for war.
  4. War is a racket. And here was our warning… and here. …and here. But we did not listen. We did not have the power to change…
  5. The Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air, and charges us interest for that privilege. When President Bush Jr. took the reigns of the Presidency we were at 6 trillion in debt, and when he got out we were at about ten. Now we are at 18.1 trillion, and gaining with no end in sight. What is happening now as Saudi/OPEC floods the market with oil, is destruction of the last viable industry we have left, the oil patch. It is all about competition, as we made it clear that we the people overwhelmingly want to be energy independent. The US and Russia are considered competition to these oil producers, and if they can destroy the infrastructure, cause layoffs, it will take years to recoup. If we could learn form the past, we would look at 1983, but one major difference is that we are about to default on our loans, just as the USSR did in the middle ’80s. We are told to keep calm, as our country is sold to the highest bidder.
  6. Our congress is the best money can buy. Almost to the last man they are sponsored by a multitude of industry, just as NASCAR drivers. Both sides of the isle take their standing orders from the same source, and all can be likened to a fixed wrestling match.
  7. War is about corporate profit, and has little or nothing to do about fighting Communism, terrorism, or bringing in a nebulous idea like Democracy. A Republic based on law, as was our original concept for America, has been hijacked by a Progressive mindset of big government, and the domination of the people both mind and spirit, by hook or crook. The only moral compass is found in their offshore bank accounts, and that is a black bottom line. They do not want to promote a Republic based on law, because they are the same people responsible for the destruction of ours…
  8. My era, Vietnam, was motivated by the false flag of The Tonkin Gulf Incident. Learn more here. And though most have been well conditioned to believe the official narrative of 9-11, it too was a false flag. Learn about this here, and here, and here. The world you live in does not belong to you, and from every direction there is a concerted effort to control your mind and destiny. But of course, most will deny this.
  9. Our Constitution has been suspended by the NDAA and Patriot Act. What seems viable is an illusion, granted by a powerful central government who dominates and controls every aspect of our lives from cradled to grave. Those truly in power in America control the media, our educational system, central banking debt slavery, and we are now considered a socialistic state, where over fifty percent of the population are now getting some form of government assistance. Socialized medicine, has given government power of over a third of industry, with all of our personal information at their disposal.
  10. Two days prior to 9-11 Rumsfeld stated that over two trillion was missing from the Pentagon, and yet we haven’t the money to secure the borders. Can you wrap your mind around what two trillion dollars is?
  11. We are not allowed to audit ether our own Fort Knox or the books of our true masters, the Federal Reserve. They have more power then the president, and is unaccountable by even international law or our Constitution. They can destroy us economically by just a simple notation, a virtual transfer of funds. We are utterly at their mercy, and supposed to trust them, and be calm. We trust them with our future, the future of our children, our sovereignty, our lives and fortunes. We are told we are free, and yet we are not at Liberty to question their actions. Not at Liberty…

Author’s note: Once, back in the year 1974, I became friends with a Marine who had spent two hitches in Vietnam. He had actually reenlisted to go back. I asked him why, and he told me he wanted to make things right, to have a second chance, and to back the men in his unit… the men he had left behind…

One night, after a few drinks, as the girls talked and laughed in the living room, he brought me up to a spare upstairs bedroom. There he pulled an old sea-chest from his closet, painted green, with his name and serial number stenciled on the top…

“I’m going to share something with you Ken,” He said in a serious voice… And he unlocked the pad, and opened it up. There on the top was a hand-made comb cut from a piece of aluminum, a clothe pin made out of bamboo, a plastic wallet with pictures of oriental children, faded from water, a woven straw hat with what looked to be a bullet hole in the middle, and there, wrapped in a gallon Crown Royal bag, was a human skull, with a bullet hole at the temple.

I had to sit down.

He had brought that skull from the theater of war, as a souvenir, a trophy. I was speechless, as I let this sink in, and I realized that this man had a side in him that he kept well hidden, and yet respected me enough to share it… but to me, it was a burden I carry to this very day, and hard to admit.

I knew emphatically, for all intent and purpose, that the side he was showing me was indeed insane, and a growing fear swept over me. What horrors had this man witnessed, that he would smuggle these items back, and keep them hidden under lock and key, as his life continued…

I didn’t understand it then, and not to this very day… but to me he was ruined in a way, so deep inside, with a pain so great, he could never, ever be whole again. And soon afterwards he divorced his wife, and disappeared from my world… and I must admit I was glad. I saw in his eyes that he was capable of anything, and that his mindset was created in the horrors of war… and his perspective has influenced mine.

And in the process, over a period of many years, I have learned to hate war. It is indeed, the greatest of all waist, and the truest horror for men. And I work to stop it.
