OK Kids… Time To Wake Up!

nooseThe world we inhabit has become complicated.  Overly complicated.  So complicated that we no longer can recognize events transpiring before our eyes.  It is magic. We have become trained and accustomed to seeing what is fake and taking it for reality.  It is magic. Slight of Hand.  There is a man behind the curtain, but our little dog, Toto is nowhere to be found.  The curtain remains closed and we continue to take artifice for reality.

Funny how a turn of phrase, repeated often enough, turns reality upside down, and makes  otherwise intelligent people, stupid.  “Genocide” ~ what the Nazi’s did to the Jews back in the day.  “Settling the Territory” ~ what the Anglo-Europeans did to the American Indian, as the ‘settlers’ occupied the lands.  Better yet, let’s call our own Indian genocide, “Civilizing the barbarians.”  That’s a tantalizing mouthful.  Can’t swallow that without a shot of vodka, or maybe a whole bottle.  Here’s a recent one for you. USA and NATO amassing heavy artillery, rocket launchers, and troops along the Eastern European border ~ “Russian Aggression.” USA executing a coupe in Ukraine, ditto “Russian aggression.” China controlling it’s national interests in the South China Sea ~ “escalation of tensions.”

And they feed us, the general populace, this pablum of lies and memes long enough until the greater mass of us come to believe its verity.  In fact, whenever I come back to USA, my ‘homeland,’ (a term I cannot use without heavy qualification and vomiting), I am asked: “Russia? Wow, why do you live there?  I mean Putin is evil; and those Russians are trying to take over the world.”  And this is what I hear from educated people.  I don’t know any stupid ones.

But, we know eventually “As The World Turns,” becomes”General Hospital,” which itself becomes “Days of our Lives.”  And our own world itself starts to look a great deal like another cheap old television drama in which we get caught up while reality passes us by.  So the memes change, and we are redirected by those controlling the horizontal and the vertical~ Lockheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics, McDonald Douglas, General Electric, Exxon-Mobil, BP, Monsanto, Citicorp, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Eli Lilly, Koch Industries, Nestle.

So then we are given over, by propaganda galore, to the new meme.  The US Presidential race for the White House, the golden ring, the chalice, Excalibur, the golden fleece… now that’s a thought.  The Big Fleecing of America ~ the US election process.  It’s showtime everyone, so put on your red, white, and blue, and listen up.  This here’s important.  In fact this is the noose that delivers the faux-golden egg.  It is deliverance time! Again, we are asked, nay forced, to believe.  Believe that it makes a difference if its Bernie the designated Commie, Donald the disgusting Fascist, or Hilary, the one and only Flying Reptile. So we have the whore of Babylon ~ a prostitute in a pants suit, taking money from anyone who is ready to pay.  Donnie, the self-financed self-promoting wealthy-kid, who does not need a penny to play, because his mouth gets him all the attention needed.  And The Bern… the hope of the unwashed masses, enrapted by his visage, as the vultures circle the shore.

The joke is on us, I’m afraid.   The system is broken, if it every really worked at all.  We are made to believe this charade makes a difference, it doesn’t.  OK.  If the reptile in a pantsuit wins I will be upset… not because I think she will do anything different than what’s she’s told.  But, I will be upset because she should be in jail, if not hanged by the neck until dead after an official judgment, of course, by a legitimate court.  You know, sort of like the charade we saw play out with our friend Saddam Hussein.  Although, I would not object to a scenario more like the one she engineered against Muammar Gadafi (“We came, we saw, he died….” chortle, chortle, gaffaw)!

But, go ahead root for your favorite color… it’s all just candy-coating on your shit-sticks.  But, perhaps we can all make ourselves a promise to not be fooled again.  What do you think?  Can we do that?  Just remember we are all members of the same species, all of us began as babies from the womb.  We all had no idea we were individuals in those first several months.  Those things flailing around were not our arms.  Those kicking things, not our legs.  The things passing before our eyes, entrenching us deeper and deeper into the startling surround of our universe.  Our sense of self a mere reflection of the world we inhabited.  But, now we are persons, important persons, with a grasp of the facts.  The facts they tell us.  And we believe them.  After all they are specialists, as are we.

And don’t forget what they tell you.  We in the USA are truly and utterly unique.  We are the exceptional nation, the chosen people (hence our unbreakable relation with Israel… another deluded folk).  We need to save the world from communism, from terror, from Muslims, from gypsies and other such barbarians.  Putin is evil, China is hungry, Iran is sick, N Korea infantile.  But we, thank our god, are sane, brave, and righteous!  And, if you continue to believe all this poppy-cock, surely the end of your individuality will be sooner than you expect.  We will all be merged in the great beyond.  Peace my friends.  Sandy

    I don’t know where to begin. Or end. Let me just say that your angst is palpable and not coincidentally I’ve found myself in state of disbelief recently. The US is unravelling from within and going homicidal on the world. The empire of chaos is on a destabilization binge on just about every continent of the world.

    It just seems to me that the international levers of power are about to be pulled simultaneously on every citizen of the world. We see it right here in the US with blatant vote rigging for the empire’s man- HRC. And few seem to notice or care.

    It also seems to me that as the US economy can’t even be jump started and the USD’s reserve status stumbles, the international elite will call the loan on the US debt. I don’t think it was ever to be repaid in any ethical way, and was used to build a monster military machine that works in the service of the internationalists, making the world’s population, including US citizens, it’s subjects.

    It looks like the national debt is intended to be paid by the gold and resources looted from vanquished lands. The international banking cohort probably intends to pay the USA debt to themselves with these proceeds along with all the public lands and assets of the US citizen. They will extort it of course, offering a deal: they will repatriate some of the offshored jobs with minuscule investment of offshore money in exchange for our commons. The average citizen will be starving at that point, so he or she will work for peanuts in what may become a national company store. Robber baron gilded age writ large over the world.

    I also presume a depopulation effect is one of the intended outcomes of this whole thing.

    Now, I may be completely wrong about the plans of a cabal of true psychopaths. Especially since there are competing cabals as well.

    One hope is that they misjudge their invincibility. Fortunately there’s a credible push-back from Russia and China. But I see the Brazilians seem to have rolled over for the Cabal. Led by the nose by pure propaganda just like North Americans.

    I don’t know what’s unfolding but it is moving fast now and I worry about a false flag event too. Putin seems to be the only grown-up in the room, and his restraint is remarkable. I hope that the quiet confidence that Putin, Lavrov, et al exude comes from a knowledge of their capabilities to put a stop to the stupidity, and provide an appropriate smack down that will leave the world intact for a multipolar balance of power.

    Maybe Edgar Cayce will have been right when he said that freedom’s savior will come from Russia, not the West.

    Here’s to hoping. I’m trying, I’m trying.

    Good luck to you, Sandy. I’ve often thought you are in a better position over there to guide your destiny and live with some dignity. Thank you for all you do.

    • Disaffected says:

      I think you’re on the exact right track Terry. Not sure I see any “savior” emerging to get us through this thing, however. In fact, just to be contrarian, I wouldn’t doubt that Putin could be part of the overall ruse here as well. That’s just speculation on my part at this point, but the level of deception these days is that pervasive and sophisticated, and that would be a brilliant twist if it turned out to be true.

      In any case, humanity’s in dire straights right now, and the drive to reduce 9B+ to <1B in a very short time will call for extreme measures. We’re all about to find out the limits to such extremities.

    • kulturcritic says:

      On point as well, David. The competing cabals are circling the wagons as we speak… there next puppet veritably enthroned. Then the hatchet will come down as DA correctly notes below.

    Great to see you back again kC! Something’s broken alright! Queen Hillary has seemingly resumed her relentless march toward immortality, as “the Bern” and “the Donald” appear more an more to be nothing more than tantalizing morsels served up for the masses’ short term gratification. Of courser, neither were likely to be long term change agents anyway, what the illusion was at least palpable for a brief moment in time. In the end, global capitalism simply will not be deterred from making it’s appointed rounds. It’s in its DNA if you will. One thing to keep in mind however: winning the game for the USA is not the end game here. Global capitalism is beyond such quaint notions as nationalism and patriotism, although both have served it wonderfully. Granted , the US has been extremely useful thus far as the launching pad for the war(s) of all on all, but it won’t always be so. When the time comes, and I sense that time is drawing very near now, [The wealth pump needs only one more financial collapse (pending, as we speak) where, after the government refuses to bail out defaulting banks due to resistance from the electorate, personal bank and retirement accounts are nationalized to bring solvency, thus completing the greatest theft of notional personal wealth in history.] the US Government apparatus will be jettisoned like just another booster rocket that’s served its purpose and the global elite will move on to whatever patsy they’ve selected to serve them next. [Likely the long-awaited world government arrangement, since pretty much every country on earth will be bankrupt in the wake of a US default.] In the end, war and destruction are not mere incidental byproducts of a system for personal enrichment for the few, they are the primary products of a system designed from the start to first grow the world economy to harvest its riches and designate the winners, and then collapse that economy back to a “sustainable” level again by eliminating the many losers. And of course, if you have to wonder which camp you fall in, it’s most certainly the latter. Game of Thrones indeed!!!

    Well DA… yes a long dry spell. I guess I should mention, I am a new father again. That’s right a newborn son at 63 years old. Am I crazy, or what. Between the movie project, the University exchange program and my new son (not to forget my 7 year old, I have had precious little time to rant here. I do think the system planned infinite growth… out of egoistic cupidity. But the plans changed when they realized there was a limit.

    • Disaffected says:

      Congrats to you and yours old man! All of this is beginning to remind me of the movie from a few years back, The Game. The level of psyops being applied to the general population these days is truly breathtaking.

      • kulturcritic says:

        Thanks!!  I also heard that ‘they’ are prepping E. Warren to become the POTUS contender to Trump, once the Flying Reptile is indicted.

        • Disaffected says:

          I wouldn’t doubt that Warren could be in line (although she’s nothing like the “great reformer” the liberal left have imagined her to be), although I would have thought they’d have indicted HRC by now if they were going to. Once she’s the nominee, I think Obama will shut down any possible indictment as “not in the nation’s best interest.” In fact, I think that’s probably already happened.

  5. FIDO says:

    Sandy, I am in agreement with DA in some sense. The debt bomb will not be repaid. Those who hold the useless debt will just have to deal with being stuck with useless paper money. As for small town Midwesterners are concerned, we will survive. As far as depopulation is concerned as a topic, one of the few areas that might do well in the age of contraction will be rural areas with access to water and simple irrigation systems.

    • kulturcritic says:

      Yes, FIDO… if Nestle does not steal all the water rights first… certainly Obama or Hilary would be pleased to do so.

      • Disaffected says:

        Depends on what part of the midwest you’re referring to as well. That part west of roughly Kearney NE is dependent on deep well irrigation from the Ogallala Aquifer, itself now an endangered species as well. Absent that and a good helping of petroleum based chemical fertilizers, GMO seeds, and petroleum powered large machinery, all those crop circles you see when viewed from above on Google maps would vanish and whatever remains of the fragile but once fertile top soil would end up blown east of the Mississippi again. The raping of the American tall grass prairie ecosystem is one of the saddest tales (of many) in the United States’ short history. The Indians and Buffalo we murdered during our rampage must be looking on our fates knowingly somewhere now. Industrial capitalist agriculture is the gift that just keeps on giving. It won’t be done with us until we are.

    • Disaffected says:

      FIDO,
      Here’s how the bankster debt “problem” works (it’s really quite ingenious): with the institution of the Federal Reserve fractional reserve system in 1913, the banks won the right to issue money as debt. That’s why your bills, if you even carry any now, are all marked ‘Federal Reserve Notes’, not ‘US Treasury Notes’ or similar. What that means is chartered banks in the US (and now world) system have the ability to create money itself by issuing loans (without going into the ‘fractional reserve’ portion, which has long-since been cleverly corrupted to virtual meaninglessness) and make money off interest as it’s repaid. Then, should the principle itself eventually be repaid, that’s all gravy too, as it was the bank itself that created it in the first place. Multiply that by millions of loans and you begin to see why bankers always work out of the poshest high rise in town.

      But the kicker is that even in downturns (which are baked into the cake of the capitalist system and/or actively planned) the bankers profit even more! As loans default, the principle (which the bank created anyway) is simply written off and any collateral pledged against it becomes the bank’s, which it can then resell at a handsome profit. The debtor, whose credit is now stained, will now pay a heftier rate and/or have to pledge even more collateral to get back into the debt game, which given the nature of the capitalist system, they almost certainly will. And in the case of widespread systemic default like we had in 2008, the banks simply appeal to the government to make good on their loans under threat of them taking down the system from which they’ve profited so much and the general public has become so dependent on. And in the final act, which we’re almost certainly going to see played out within the next five years or so, after even the national government currency ‘authorizer’ (remembering that the Central Bank is the ‘issuer’) is finally bled dry and/or its enraged citizenry demand that the Government simply let the banks fail, the banks will “reluctantly capitulate” and simply seize their customers’ [Ordinary customers that is, the elite customers (many of whom are bank owners) will have known all this was coming and devised clever strategies to avoid it.] demand deposit and retirement accounts (in addition to pledged collateral) to meet the banks’ obligations before collapsing altogether.

      Think it can’t happen? It already has many times in smaller countries the world over at the behest of the World Bank, the international arm of the Central Banking cartel. Think all this is happening by pure bad luck or chance? Think again. This was the carefully calculated end game all along. 2008 was the dress rehearsal, 201? will be the final act. It will no doubt bring down the house.

  6. Disaffected says:

    I’ll reserve final judgement for now, but the latest mass shooting in Orlando FL certainly has all the attributes of a false flag, or at the very least, black ops facilitated event. The press is already dutifully playing their part in hyping this as a “terrorist attack on the homeland,” complete with the now ubiquitous links to our latest boogeyman, ISIS. Interesting times we’re living in these days, for sure.

  7. the Heretick says:

    Speak for yourself, I haven’t slept, not a wink. The fix was always in with the Democrats dirty delegate system. How anyone can vote for Clinton with her warmongering ways is beyond me. This county is done, cooked, barbecued, if the debt doesn’t get us, then factional turmoil will.

    It is bloody amazing the crap that goes on, talk about climate change, tens of millions of unemployed, and narcissist nation prattles on about transgenderism, transhumanism, and Amazon’s new robot warehouses; all of this while half the planet doesn’t have clean water to drink.

    Let us not forget that this is a worldwide phenomenon, the greedy baboons of the ruling class, whatever their country or color, collude constantly to keep the peons underfoot with the iron heel firmly on their throats.

    • Disaffected says:

      It’s a worldwide phenomenon (parasitic organism) alright, albeit with the US as its primary host. But you have to expand your horizons to understand it HT. None of this was by chance and there’s a definite end game in mind, if not in sight.

      The beating of the war drums are being noticed:

      http://cluborlov.blogspot.com/2016/06/interview-with-chris-martenson.html

      http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2016/06/john-helmer-us-strategy-for-russia-wage-war-but-not-declare-it.html

      And without speaking out of turn, local sources openly acknowledge that the sole manufacture for nuclear pits (bomb cores) in the US inventory (look it up) is expecting extraordinarily rosy budgetary times ahead for at least the next 5-10 years. That’s especially interesting, since a large contingent of the cold war era experts are approaching their “final-final” retirement age (many after two or three previous “retirements” only to return under another guise (private contractor, consultant, etc.) to collect EVEN MORE federal gravy!), meaning any prospective wave of new hires will most assuredly be Gen X and later, firmly passing the nuclear baton onto the current generations, who will no longer be able to blame all this fucking madness on their parents’ and grandparents’ generations. Personally, I have no doubt whatsoever that they will exceed all expectations in the worst way imaginable, we Americans being fairly predictable that way.

      In short, times have never been better to be a war monger here in the good ol’ USA, especially since its the only viable economic activity remaining. Rather than seeing death, destruction, and radiological contamination all around, one needs to focus on the possibilities implied. Could “punctuated equilibrium evolution” deliver species mutations in our wake (possibly even including variations on our own) which will jump start everything in our wake again in a century or two? Never say never, as they say, but I have a distinct feeling we’re about to find out either way. It’s all just a matter of perspective!

      • the Heretick says:

        The planet has been on a binge alright, drunk on oil, a real power trip, 21st Century Schizoid Man, techno-utopia, denialism on steroids. Living with blinders on, the masses don’t know what the hell to do, other than to go feral. You have got it right, walk hard.

        The gulf between the mythos and reality is too great, the charade is cracking, the mask is coming off, everyone, especially the power brokers, is in for a rude surprise. TPTB believe they can manage, keep the Beast under control; I, for one, do not think so. The words of the prophet are written on the subway walls, highway overpasses, under bridges, let the good times roll. We have killed our prophets.

        “I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a ‘thing-oriented’ society to a ‘person-oriented’ society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

        “We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity. We still have a choice today; nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation. We must move past indecision to action. We must find new ways to speak for peace and justice throughout the developing world a world that borders on our doors.

        “If we do not act we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality and strength without sight.”

        Martin Luther King

        • Disaffected says:

          MLK was a true visionary. He put it to words better than almost anyone else, but I think a lot of people felt at some level that this has been coming all along. The disasters are all accelerating in number and severity now, indicative of their exponenential function underpinnings.

    • Disaffected says:

      Well, if nothing else the 2016 election extravaganza has certainly been entertaining this year, hasn’t it, HT? I agree with you in thinking that the country has reached criticality with regard to its politics. If anyone had any remaining doubts that it’s all just a show put on for our benefit, I think 2016 has and will continue to dispel those notions for good. So that’s a start anyway.

      But there was never any doubt in my mind that there was an elimination season baked into the cake for us proles. Hell, its been going on for well over a half century in the rest of the world already, it’s just that the time has finally come for we paltry lower and (formerly) middle class Americans to take our place in line for the chutes leading to the slaughter house killing floor. Never fear, I hear the end is mercifully painless for most. A silent drone overhead, a precision guided missile, and a loud boom, which you’ll never even hear. On to whatever’s next!
