Americans Irrationally Fear Terrorist Attacks


Most people don’t think or reason. They react, often irrationally. A previous article said chances of being struck by lightning are much greater than becoming a terrorist attack victim.

Death by auto accident, preventable diseases, violence at home by one family member against another, alcoholism or excessive use of harmful legal drugs is infinitely higher – what media propaganda never explains.

State-sponsored/scoundrel media hyped fear convinces most people of nonexistent dangers. Early November Gallup data showed only 3% of Americans called terrorism the nation’s top problem – polling done before the Paris attacks, compared to 46% in October 2001. Expect a much higher fear level when new polling results are available.

Four earlier 2015 Gallup measures “showed an increased (public) concern about terrorism” – from 39% last year to 51% in 2015.

Opinions on 15 issues were polled. A possible future terrorist attack was the third-ranked public concern after the “availability and affordability of healthcare” and “the economy.”

Nearly half of Americans fear they or a family member will be victimized by terrorism at some future time. The highest level recorded was 59% post-9/11 – people not realizing their fears were and continue to be entirely unjustified.

The only real terrorist threat is state-sponsored, America attacking its own people like on 9/11. The likelihood of a repeat incident is high, maybe something more dramatic, possibly in multiple locations.

In June, Gallup found only two-thirds of Americans expressed confidence in Washington protecting them from a future terrorist attack – “the lowest level of trust recorded in the history of this trend question (first asked) in late 2001.”

Gallup attributes the low figure to the public’s lack of “confidence in the government in general.” Americans call ISIS and international terrorism overall “critical threats to the vital interests of the United States” – the greatest one on a list of eight possible ones, including the “military power of Russia” and “economic power of China.”

By a two-to-one margin, Americans want terrorism confronted without sacrificing civil liberties – as compared to the months post-9/11 when they were split on this issue around 50 – 50.

Polling data didn’t reveal public ignorance about state-sponsored terrorism. Propaganda works, convincing most people about nonexistent threats, including ISIS possibly invading their communities.

Gallup data showed 43% of Americans favor “sending (US) ground troops to Iraq and Syria” to fight ISIS, unaware it’s a US creation.

A post-Paris attack Washington Post/ABC News poll showed increased public fear of terrorist attacks, greater willingness to use US combat troops in the Middle East, opposition to admitting refugees, and willingness to sacrifice civil liberties for security.

81% of Americans believe a future terrorist attack on US soil is likely, large numbers of lives lost. Most respondents don’t think  government can stop it.

Over 70% want federal action against possible terrorist threats, even if it means personal privacy intrusions.

60% support use of US combat troops against ISIS – 73% back more airstrikes. Americans are easy marks to dupe into favoring what demands opposition.

The late Michael Mandel’s important book, titled “How America Gets Away With Murder: Illegal Wars, Collateral Damage, and Crimes Against Humanity” discussed its lawless enterprise, its fabricated humanitarian intervention claims, and by implication how easy it is to convince most people to support what harms their welfare and self-interest.

Polling data confirm it. Most Americans are chumps. No matter how many times they were fooled before, deceiving them again is easy. Propaganda works.

Warning: If You Live Anywhere Near Chicago, Brace Yourself For Massive Rioting


The city of Chicago has released a video that shows a white police officer shooting a 17-year-old African-American young man named Laquan McDonald 16 times.  Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez says that this video is “graphic”, “violent” and “chilling”, and it is expected to provoke a very strong emotional reaction from Chicago’s very large African-American community.  Over the past few years, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray have all become household names because of the way that they died, and now it looks like Laquan McDonald’s name will be added to that list.  But the situation in Chicago is potentially even more volatile what we witnessed in either Ferguson or Baltimore.  More than a million African-Americans live in the Chicago metropolitan area, and the crime rate in the city has already been skyrocketing.  In fact, it is being projected that Chicago’s murder rate will increase by 20 percent in 2015.  This is a city that is always living on the edge of chaos, and now the video of Laquan McDonald’s death could be the spark that sets Chicago ablaze.

After everything that has happened over the past few years, the last thing that we need is another incident that will make racial tensions in this country even worse.  Unfortunately, that appears to be exactly what we are going to get.  Cook County Judge Franklin Valderrama ordered the city of Chicago to release the video of the death of Laquan McDonald to the public, and now the entire country is going to get to see what really happened.  Could this be the footage that causes the anger and frustration of the African-American community to completely boil over?  The following comes from CNN

Laquan McDonald was walking down a Chicago street the night of October 20, 2014, carrying a four-inch knife and behaving erratically, authorities say.

A police officer told him to drop the knife. He didn’t listen, and the officer fired on him out of fear for his life, according to a police union spokesman.

McDonald, 17, died. He was shot 16 times.

Now, more than a year later, the public will be able to see what happened.

For African-American activists that have already had their patience stretched to the maximum by similar cases over the past few years, this horrifying video could prove to be the final straw.  Already, there are tremendous expressions of outrage and frustration pouring in on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez specifically moved up the announcement of murder charges against the white police officer that shot McDonald to November 24th in a desperate attempt to defuse the reaction to the release of the video.  But will it work?  This next excerpt comes from USA Today

Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez described the video, which shows Van Dyke unloading 16 shots on 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, as grim.

“It is graphic, it is violent, it is chilling,” Alvarez told reporters after Van Dyke appeared in court Tuesday.

Alvarez said she made her decision weeks ago to charge Van Dyke, but had delayed announcing while federal authorities completed their parallel investigation of the incident.But after a judge ordered the release of the dashcam video by Wednesday, Alvarez said it was necessary to move up her office’s timeline even as her federal counterparts continue to their investigation.

“I felt compelled in the interest of public safety to announce these state charges today, ” Alvarez said.

And needless to say, this is the kind of thing that could easily cause the city of Chicago to erupt in unprecedented violence.

In fact, Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass is already fearing the worst

John Kass, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, said the videocould tear Chicago apart.”

Dean Angelo, the president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, told CNN affiliate WBBM he is concerned protesters from outside the city may converge to “disrupt and cause problems.”

“This is my city. We all live here,” Angelo said. “I’m concerned about the safety of my officers. I’m concerned about the safety of the civilian population. … I think local people don’t want to see their neighborhoods damaged.”

And even the governor of Illinois seems quite alarmed that we could see riots.  Here is more from USA Today

Gov. Bruce Rauner announced Tuesday that his office had been debriefed on the video and that he expected public reaction to “strong,” the Associated Press reports. The governor directed Illinois State Police to work with Chicago Police to make sure the public remains safe following the release of the video. The governor, however, declined to say whether he has deployed any additional state troopers or put the National Guard on standby.

Even at the best of times, Chicago seems to be dealing with turmoil.  Poverty is a persistent and growing problem, the city is teetering on the brink of insolvency, and it has become a central hub for some of the largest criminal gangs in the entire nation.

According to a CBS News article that was published back in 2012, there are 100,000 members of criminal gangs living in the city of Chicago alone…

Sgt. Matt Little leads one of the teams in Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit. There are about 200 such officers in the city– versus 100,000 gang members.

“Almost all the violence we’re seeing now is from the gangs,” Little said. “When there’s a shooting we’ll respond to the shooting. We’ll figure out where we believe the most likely area for retaliation is and we’ll work that area trying to both prevent retaliation and possibly build a case on offenders.”

And thanks to unchecked illegal immigration, more gang members are pouring into Chicago every single day.

So if there were 100,000 three years ago, how many are there now?

Back in early April, I warned about the civil unrest that was coming to America, and I specifically named three cities that would be flashpoints: Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C.

I issued this warning before any of us had ever even heard the name “Freddie Gray”, but by the end of April the city of Baltimore resembled a war zone.

And now Chicago appears poised to descend into chaos.

If you live anywhere near Chicago, you need to prepare yourself and your family for what could happen next.

Now that this video is available to the public, it could set off anger unlike anything we have seen up to this point, and that would not be good for any of us.

Twice the Time Needed to Reach the Moon Today than 50 Years Ago !


Russia just announced that it hopes to put the first man on the moon a mere 60 years after America allegedly did it on the first attempt with 1960’s technology.

There is more computing power found today in a $10 Walmart digital watch than was in the entire US space program of the 1960’s. President Kennedy, who was not a scientist, rather a political visionary, set the irreversible goal to put a man on the moon in only 8 years hence, though the most difficult scientific achievement of all time had never before been accomplished, and never in the history of the world had one been attained on the very first attempt, putting the nation’s pride on public spectacle for a looming failure.

Today, Russia, who launched the world’s first satellite, launched the world’s first astronaut, and accomplished the world’s first spacewalk, will take twice as long, 15 years from today after setting the goal, with 60 years more advanced technology, to do what was supposedly so easily accomplished with 1960’s technology on the very first attempt.

Amazing, isn’t it?

If it took 8 years to make the first automobile 50 years ago, would it take 15 years to make another automobile today, with 5 decades more advanced technology?

Technology does not go backwards!

(Unless the moon landings were real.)

If it were so easy to go the the moon in the 1960’s, there would be bases there now, by numerous nations.  The south pole has a low temperature of nearly 90 below zero, yet there are bases there, because it is humanly possible.  If it were possible to have men on the moon, they would be there, right now.  The fact that there are not, is proof that it cannot be done.

It is so simple to see, if you are not blinded by the pride of manipulated and misplaced propagandized patriotism.  The only way this blatant contradiction can exist, is if the first alleged missions to the moon were intentional government trickery instead.

In a world full of million man genocide and child abuse, is it really so hard to believe that a government simply lied to their people on a single occasion to save face on the international stage?

It is so simple to see . . . to the humble learner . . . yet so hard to see by the prideful, who all ready thinks they know everything, closing their minds to life saving truths, so close within the weakened grasp of their starving hand.

Arachnophobia: Tennessee Neighborhood Invaded By Millions Of Spiders


Spiders have overrun a suburban neighborhood in North Memphis, Tennessee. Millions of arachnids suddenly showed up, building nests in trees and bushes along the road and in fields. Residents said the little critters have also invaded their houses.

The invasion happened over the weekend and efforts to remove the spiders are slow moving, according to residents.

“They’re just in the air, they’re flying everywhere, they’re in the house, on the side of the windows,” local resident Debra Lewis told WMC Action News. “It’s like a horror movie.”

Her neighbor, Frances Ward, said, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never seen nothing like this before.”

News footage from WMC showed a half-mile long silvery web along the roadside. On closer inspection, it was teeming with hundreds of thousands of spiders. Some neighbors suggested the city should do something about the infestation.

“Clean this area up and spray for these spiders and make it safe,” Debra Lewis told WMC. “There are kids running around. A spider could bite the kids or anything.”

Memphis Zoo curator Steve Reichling told United Press International there is nothing to worry about, as very few spider species in the United States are poisonous, and those that are don’t propagate in large numbers.

Reichling said the spiders could have been there all along are now on the move. Another explanation could be that there are a large number of newborn spiders migrating for new territory.

“In fields and meadows, there are often literally millions of spiders doing their thing, unseen and unappreciated by us,” Reichling told UPI. “I would not want to live in a world where such things were no longer possible. The presence of these spiders tells us that all is well with nature at that location.”

Experts say the presence of the spiders is not a bad thing, but residents are not happy.

You can’t even sit down in her house [Frances’s] cause they all on the wall and on the door,” local resident Debra Lewis told WMC. “We’ve been killing spiders for like an hour now.”

UPI reported that a similar spider emergency event covered a Texas neighborhood with several hundred square feet of webbing in the summer. Earlier this fall, cold weather in Montana sent scores of hobo spiders indoors, invading homes in Missoula.


Utah School Forces Students To Create “Join ISIS” Poster! Radicalization Has Begun (VIDEO)

terrorism propaganda school assignment

In the town of Salem, Utah, parents are outraged at the latest assignment being given to the their ninth graders at Salem Junior High School, where they were asked to draw a propaganda poster for a terrorist organization.

Obviously the parents were outraged and the assignment was canceled, but it wasn’t until after some of the students has already completed the project. Furthermore, the parents were concerned that their children may have been scarred in the process and question if this was done in light of what happened in Paris, France.

While Christmas, Christianity, patriotism, and the American flag are being stripped from our schools, they are replacing it with the radical theologies such as Islam.

Here is the breaking report….

Pew Research Poll: 40% of Millennials Want To Restrict Free Speech

free speech

By: Joshua Krause, The Daily Sheeple |

Pew Research recently surveyed a broad selection of Americans on the subject of offensive speech, and their findings do not bode well for the future of America. The respondents were asked if the government should step in to prevent speech that is offensive toward minorities, to which 28% of Americans agreed. Mind you, this wasn’t about speech that called for violence against minorities. It’s anything that could be deemed “offensive,” an increasingly vague and inclusive term in this day and age.

What was more shocking however, was how different generations of Americans thought about the issue. 40% of millennials aged 18-34 thought that the government should prevent people from saying these things, which appears to be the latest in a long-term trend that favors free speech restrictions. Only 12% of those between the ages of 70-87, 24% of those aged 51-69, and 27% of Americans aged 35-50, supported government restrictions.

When the statistics were broken down by education level, those with college degrees had the lowest support, whereas those who had a high school degree or less were the most supportive. Depending on how you look at that, it either suggests that younger Americans are less enthusiastic about free speech rights than the generation that came before, or those who want to restrict speech aren’t as educated. Pew also found that woman and minorities were more likely to support government intervention, as were Democrats and Independents.

The only good news to come out of the survey, is that Americans still support free speech more than the citizens of other nations. “Compared with people we surveyed in dozens of nations, Americans as a whole are less likely to favor the government being able to prevent speech of any kind.” However, given the trends that we see in this poll, it doesn’t sound like Americans will be very tolerant of free speech in the future.

If you think things are bad now, hold fast, because it’s about to get rocky with the soon infiltration of Syrian immigrants that Obama is forcefully bringing into this country by the tens-of-thousands within the next year. Not to mention the hundreds-of-thousands he intends to bring in the following years.

In the video below I cover everything from a sports event that took place in Turkey where Turkish fans booed the victims of the Paris shooting yelling “Allah u Akbar” thereby supporting the outrageous acts of ISIS on civilians, to the amount of refugees that have already been taken into custody by our government for treasonous threats, to face book’s most recent attempt to back the entire ordeal and block anyone who speaks out against it.

The Who, How And Why Of The JFK Assassination – 52 Years On – Part 1

The JFK assassination still matters, 52 years on.

The JFK assassination still matters, 52 years on.

The JFK assassination, almost to the day 52 years later, is still subject that generates a lot of emotion, curiosity and speculation. Rightly so – the event was of extreme significance and is a telling reminder that the people who run this world are far above the level of prime ministers and presidents. Like 9/11, the JFK assassination was a severe blow to the psyche of the public in America and the world. It was mass trauma, not only crafted to remove a man who opposed the New World Order manipulators in many ways, but also designed to shatter innocence and send a powerful message: that the controllers can kill whomever they want and get away with it by controlling the key power centers of society (White House, CIA, FBI, Texas state governorship, local police and sheriff’s departments, etc.) so that any subsequent investigation will go nowhere.

The implications of the JFK assassination remain large to this day, a fact lost on Noam Chomsky when he stated that “Who knows? Who cares? Why does it matter? … The evidence against [a high-level conspiracy to kill JFK] is overwhelming” and thus revealed himself to be either unintentionally narrow-minded or an intentional gatekeeper of truth. Hollywood actor Bruce Willis summed it much better than Chomsky when he declared: “They still haven’t caught the guy that killed Kennedy … I’ll get killed for saying this, but I’m pretty sure those guys are still in power, in some form. The entire government of the United States was co-opted“. Indeed – it was co-opted, and still is.

Why The JFK Assassination Still Matters Today, 52 Years On

So, why does it still matter today? Quite simply, because the killers are still at large and on the loose. I don’t necessarily mean the actual killers or even the actual conspirators coordinating them, but rather, the same shady families, bloodlines, organizations and Secret Societies that executed the murder. The JFK assassination was a coup d’etat. The New World Order conspirators took over the US Government in broad daylight, and managed to escape scot free, only needing to sacrifice a few of the lower men in their conspiracy. The Mafia, CIA, FBI, Federal Reserve and military-industrial-intelligence complex (including secret groups like MJ-12) in general are just as out-of-control today as they were in JFK’s time, if not more so. The Bush bloodline has become even more entrenched in American politics, not less. The same group of white-collar thugs and criminals still have their hands on the reins of power. The effects of the JFK assassination can still be felt today just living in the modern United States, watching it descend more and more into a police state of surveillance and tyranny.

A Brief Background to the JFK Assassination

Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, made a fortune importing alcohol into the States after prohibition.

Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, made a fortune importing alcohol into the States after prohibition.

Thousands of books have been written on the subject of the JFK assassination, so it’s obviously far beyond the scope of this article to cover it all. Instead, this article briefly summarizes the who, how and why. Before getting into the who, people unfamiliar with the JFK assassination will need a brief background on John F. Kennedy.

To begin with, JFK was maneuvered into power by his father, Joe Kennedy, a shady character in his own right, and a former US ambassador who made a fortune from importing alcohol into the US in the days after prohibition. Kennedy had developed enough power and contacts to push his son into the candidacy – but Joe and John had to meet and cut deals with various groups like the Mafia in order for John to get into power. This would later come back to haunt him when he double-crossed the Mafia and by sending his brother Bobby (who was Attorney General from 1961-1964) after them. JFK was highly beloved and respected, but like any human, he was not perfect. Due to suffering from Addison’s disease, he was dependent on a daily array of numerous Big Pharma prescription drugs (including painkillers and stimulants). He was also a sex maniac – the list of his known mistresses was reportedly 33 at the time of his death – who likely benefited from using presidential mind controlled sex slaves like other US presidents after him (see Brice Taylor and Cathy O’Brien’s testimonies regarding former Presidents Ford, George Bush Sr. and Clinton).

However, despite his vices, Kennedy had courage and principle. He learnt pretty quickly that the military-industrial complex (to which outgoing President Eisenhower referred) was out of control, and had seized the reins of power in the US – especially the CIA. After the Bays of Pigs disaster in 1961, and almost being dragged to the point of nuclear war with Russia during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, JFK quickly wisened up to the shocking truth that psychopaths occupied high positions of power in America, and that many of them belonged to a close-knit network of Secret Societies. JFK wanted to pull out of Vietnam, making enemies in the military-industrial complex whose profits back then and still today depend on constant war.

The JFK assassination took away the last great US President to stand firmly against the goals of the New World Order.

The JFK assassination took away the last great US President to stand firmly against the goals of the New World Order.

He made another great enemy when he sacked Allen Dulles, head of the CIA, in November 1961, and made still more powerful enemies in the international banking elite when he tried to override their privately owned Federal Reserve bank with Executive Order 11110 in June 1963. Here is a partial excerpt from it:

“The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821(b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of an outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption.”

Some believe this brave and informed speech, dubbed “The President and the Press”, given by Kennedy in 1961, set the wheels in motion for the JFK assassination:

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence – on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

JFK seemed to bump up against this monolithic and ruthless conspiracy in many ways, making many powerful enemies. Let us now turn our attention to the who of the JFK assassination and name them.

The Who of the JFK Assassination

So who killed JFK? Kennedy made numerous enemies, including the CIA and the Mafia (basically one and the same thing), the Federal Reserve and the forever warmongering military-industrial-intelligence complex in general. According to sources such as LBJ (Lyndon Baines Johnson) mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown, who was also the mother of LBJ’s illegitimate son, the night before the JFK assassination, a group of men gathered at the house of Dallas oil man Clint Murchison. Many of the conspirators were among them. They included:

– Clint Murchison himself, who stood to lose a fortune if Kennedy changed the oil depletion allowance;

– Haroldson Lafayette Hunt, Texas oil tycoon, in the same position as Murchison;

– FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who had invested millions into Murchison’s oil business, and who knew the Kennedy wanted to replace him;

– Vice-president LBJ (who had ordered 8 people to be murdered, including his sister, and was about to be found out before JFK’s death);

– Texas Governor John Connally;

– Dallas Mayor Earle Cabell (brother of CIA Deputy Director Charles Cabell, whom Kennedy had fired);

– Richard Nixon, who had lost the 1960 election to JFK;

– The 2 Brown Brothers, of Brown Brothers/Harriman, who were involved along with the Bushes in funding the Nazis;

– Joseph Sevilla, head of the Dallas mafia;

– John McCloy, head of Chase-Manhattan Bank, a confirmed Nazi who shared a box with Hitler in the 1936 Olympic Games;

– Carlos Moncello, Mafia don;

– Jack Ruby (Rubinstein), who later killed the patsy Lee Harvey Oslwald on live TV, and who worked for Mafia boss Sam Giancana;

– Malcolm Wallace, world-class marksman, serial killer and LBJ hitman, whose fingerprints were found on the weapon in the Texas School Book Depository.

The CIA and the Mafia were the major players in the JFK assassination.

The CIA and the Mafia were the major players in the JFK assassination.

Interestingly, Madeleine quotes LBJ as saying, as he left that fateful meeting, that “after tomorrow those SOBs [sons of bitches – the Kennedys] will never embarrass me again. That’s no threat – that’s a promise!” Then we have the deathbed confession of CIA agent E. Howard Hunt (Operation 40), who was also highly involved in the JFK assassination plot and later in the Watergate burglary. Hunt named CIA operatives Cord Meyer (whose wife was apparently having an affair with JFK), David Morales and William Harvey as being involved as gunmen. Hunt also hired Frank Sturgis and Bernard Barker. Other people involved in the JFK assassination were Dallas Sheriff Bill Decker, Dallas Police Chief George Lumpkin, the men that New Orleans District Attorney tried to prosecute (Clay Shaw, David Ferrie and Guy Banister), Joseph Milteer (see FBI agent Don Adams’ research on this) and presidential limousine driver William Greer, the secret service agent who slowed down and brought the limousine to a stop after the first shot was fired. This action alone, in violation of secret service protocol, allowed the subsequent sniper shots to successfully complete the JFK assassination.

Researcher Ole Dammegard has done a great job exposing CIA Operation 40, a super-secret team of assassins composed of around 40 crack CIA agents, created in the late 1950s by President Eisenhower and VP Nixon. It was behind many of the most famous high-profile assassinations of the last 6 decades, including the JFK assassination, as well as those of MLK, RFK, John Lennon, Che Guervera, Bob Marley and more. Dammegard named the exact names and positions of the gunmen at Dealey Plaza on November 22nd, 1963 in this radio interview with Roxy Lopez (around the 34-minute mark) as follows, which closely corresponds to this list and also this one in his Veterans’s Today article:

Masterminds of the JFK Assassination

The above people were some of the main conspirators, or at the very least knew about the planned JFK assassination in advance and were in favor of it. However, evidence shows that the actual masterminds of the JFK assassination were probably more like these 4 men:

– Allen Dulles (CIA);

– David Atlee Phillips (CIA);

– George H. W. Bush (CIA); and

– Sam Giancana (Mafia).

The man in the above photo at Dealey Plaza on the day of the JFK assassination looks suspiciously like George Bush.

Allen Dulles was an elite lawyer who co-wrote the Treaty of Versailles – the one that severely and unfairly punished Germany for WW1 and created fertile grounds for German discontent, cheap German stocks, the rise of a tyrant like Hitler and WW2. As has been well documented by people like Anthony Sutton, Wall Street funded the rise of the Nazis, and helped ensure many of them escaped at the end of WW2 into America under Operation Paperclip. Dulles became a director of the elite think tank Council on Foreign Relations in 1927, and later in 1950, Eisenhower promoted him to CIA director, where with Nazi assistance he helped to create the MK-Ultra mind control programs. He was rumored to be head of MJ-12, in charge of advanced UFO and ET technology. David Atlee Phillips became the CIA’s head of operations for the Western Hemisphere, head of Operation 40 and Lee Harvey Oswald’s handler. Sam Giancana was a Chicago Mafia boss who was approached by the CIA to assassinate Cuban president Fidel Castro. Giancana reportedly said that the CIA and the Cosa Nostra Mafia were “different sides of the same coin” and that “the CIA and the mafia are one organization who keep a low profile while they control the whole world as a business”.

As Francis Conolly narrates in the excellent film JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick:

“[The spy agents of the US Government] function essentially as a goon squad of mercenaries and murderers, hardly any different to Hitler’s gestapo, and are used a private intelligence service and as personal hit men for America’s richest families – their only role being to cover up the dirty tricks which the rich people are playing on their fellow countrymen, every day.”

The role of George Bush is central. Many have claimed it is him in this photo (above) at the scene of the crime. John Hankey explores the evidence in his film Dark Legacy: George Bush and the Murder of John Kennedy. We know that Bush was working at the CIA in 1963 (despite his claims under oath that he only began there in 1974) from this declassified FBI memo written by J. Edgar Hoover which names him as being part of the CIA, supervising “some anti-Castro group” that was implicated in (or responsible for) the JFK assassination. This declassified document (scroll to bottom) places Bush in Dallas on the day of the shooting, 11/22/1963. Russ Baker also provides more evidence of Bush’s involvement in the JFK assassination. George Bush, like his father Prescott and like Averell Harriman, was a member of the Skull ‘n’ Bones Club (which engaged in sexual Satanic ritual or black magic) – the exact kind of secret society JFK was speaking against in his 1961 speech. It seems George Bush was the man in charge of operations on the ground that fateful day in Dallas.

Part 2 of this series deals with the how, and part 3 with the why of the JFK assassination – and the occult masonic symbolism surrounding it.

Is this Eugene Brading’s ‘X-marked hatband’? (‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ (p. 5)

By: Shawn Hamilton, Theswillbucket |

In 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.” Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing. Evidently a fervent underground effort had been underway to get this information out. So I’ve kept a copy of the Skeleton Key around for the last four decades taking notes on developments, and recent history, so far, has increased my confidence in the document’s veracity.

The Skeleton Key’s genesis involves a conspiracy-themed radio talk show host named Mae Brussell née Magnin, who lived in Carmel Valley, California in the early 1970s and was related to the founder of San Francisco’s fashionable and prosperous I. Magnin department store chain. A local news director had introduced Brussell to Stephanie Caruana, then a contributing editor at Playgirl magazine. Although some question the Key’s authorship, it is generally attributed to Caruana who says she wrote it. She said it was the Patty Hearst kidnapping that resulted in her meeting Brussell.

“I was just ranting with curiosity about Patty Hearst because she was living around a mile from me in Berkeley when the kidnap happened, and this whole massive publicity campaign got underway. I was saying, ‘What is going on here? This doesn’t seem like a normal case.’ It was so overblown,’” Caruana said. “The mass media get on a story and everybody covers the same story day after day, but if you really know what’s going on, you may suspect that there is something else going on underneath, something they’re not paying any attention to.”

On February 4, 1974, a group of “revolutionaries” using the contrived appellation, “Symbionese Liberation Army” (SLA), abducted Patty Hearst— the 19-year-old granddaughter of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst—who was attending the public university in Berkeley. The Skeleton Key refers to the SLA episode this way: “February 1974: Mafia Hearst’s daughter, Patty, “kidnapped” by Lipset’s SLA in a fake terrorist action.” Hal Lipset was a San Francisco private investigator whose name also appears in the Skeleton Key connected to the Watergate debacle.

The SLA began in 1971 as a loose-knit group of mostly middle and upper-class white radicals who embraced a mélange of philosophies endorsing selective violence and crime to initiate social change. While a few members were in prison, they met Donald “Cinque” DeFreeze during meetings of the “Black Cultural Association.” After DeFreeze conveniently escaped from prison in 1972, he contacted SLA members in Oakland and eventually assumed leadership of the group, which engaged in kidnappings, bank robberies, assassinations—and feeding the poor, all in an apparent effort to foment revolution. After abducting Patty Hearst, the SLA demanded that large amounts of food be donated to poor people in exchange for the heiress’s release. Patty’s father, Randolph Hearst, president of the San Francisco Examiner, agreed to pay an initial $2 million in ransom, and food was distributed at several sites. According to The Realist publisher Paul Krassner, when the governor, Ronald Reagan, saw one of the long lines of people waiting for food, he groused, “I hope they get botulism.” Due to lack of adequate organization the food giveaway was a disaster, so the SLA refused to release Hearst.

Caruana had given Krassner a copy of the Skeleton Key in 1975, the same year he began reporting on the upcoming Hearst trial for the Berkeley Barb. In his 2014 book, Patty Hearst and the Twinkie Murders, Krassner outlines a case to support a bold claim. “Donald “Cinque” DeFreeze,” he says, “was a double agent.”

Brussell too believed that a clandestine arm of the US government either created or manipulated the SLA as a tool of espionage designed to distort the message of idealism. The root of the neologism “Symbionese,” the Greek “symbiosis,” means “a living together” as in peace, harmony, and balance—among the subversive ideas and ideals that the operation apparently tried to undermine. Krassner, once a member of Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters and the first living inductee of the Counterculture Hall of Fame, had published Brussell’s early articles on the Watergate antagonists. “She really did scoop everybody,” Caruana said. “I believe she got that information from Roberts’ Gemstone papers because he certainly had the goods on those people. He knew all about them.”

The public generally assumed Hearst was being held against her will, so it was especially dramatic when on April 3, 1974, she announced that she had joined the SLA to fight for the oppressed and had adopted the “revolutionary” name, Tania.” After a security camera filmed her helping the SLA rob a San Francisco bank on April 15, the public assumed she was being coerced or brainwashed. Subsequently, the group fled south to Los Angeles where members sequestered themselves in a south-central community until a suspicious neighbor tipped off the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

Militarization of the police was relatively new then, and I recall seeing on television the impressive public demonstration by the LAPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit of its new and very expensive military-grade equipment. So, not unexpectedly, on May 17, 1974, live cameras allowed the country to watch the house burn down with SLA members inside—presaging later events such as the destruction of the MOVE complex in Philadelphia and the “Branch Davidian” compound in Waco, Texas. When officials began investigating, everyone wondered if Patty Hearst was inside. She wasn’t. Six had perished, but the rest had escaped. Patty Hearst was caught on September 18, 1975 and went to trial in January of 1976. She served two years for “bank robbery” and “use of a dangerous weapon” before President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence and President Bill Clinton later pardoned her.

In December of 1974 Playgirl magazine ran an article that Caruana and Brussell had co-authored called, “Is Howard Hughes Dead and Buried Off An Island In Greece?” It involved the disappearance of Texas multi-millionaire Howard Hughes and Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis, but after examining the file folder of notes Brussell had provided, Caruana told her she had found little evidence to justify an article accusing either man of misdeeds. At that point, Caruana said, Brussell reluctantly produced a file containing several hundred handwritten notes, letters, articles and news clippings of a man named Bruce Porter Roberts along with specific instructions on when and how to read them. Brussell stressed that it was easy to get “lost” in the material and imposed specific conditions on its reading. Caruana, cloistered in a bedroom at Brussell’s house, read into the early morning, increasingly absorbed in a sordid tale of political intrigue, thievery, and murder. Caruana wrote the Playgirl article based on the revelations contained in those pages.

“Mae placed a lot of restrictions on me. In the first place, she really didn’t want me to read Roberts’ letters. She was keeping them a very closely held secret. I can imagine a lot of reasons, but I can’t tell you which one is right. She just didn’t want this stuff to get out,” Caruana said. “I thought it could have something to do with her two uncles who were involved in politics. They were both rabbis who were political—one a Democrat and the other a Republican. Part of this whole Gemstone thing has to do with people’s families and how important it is to know who’s related to whom and how. These plots and plans and tools really determine what goes on in countries. If you know who’s related to whom, it often clarifies things a great deal,” Caruana said.

The Skeleton Key distills the massive collection of letters and various writings of Bruce Roberts, who had studied journalism and physics at the University of Wisconsin specializing in crystallography, including the creation of synthetic gems such as rubies. One of the few known pictures of Bruce Roberts, a magazine photo from the 1950s, shows him pinning a synthetic gemstone on the flamboyant entertainer Carmen Miranda. This verifies Roberts’ existence as well as his interest in artificial gems. Caruana assured me that this was the Bruce Roberts with whom she had conversed in San Francisco.

According to the Skeleton Key, Roberts had taken some of his synthetic rubies to the Hughes Tool Company hoping to exchange a few of them for use of its facilities. Instead, Hughes employees stole his rubies, which Roberts believed was due to their optical quality and potential use in laser beam research. That episode caused Roberts’ profound animosity toward the Mafia generally and Howard Hughes specifically.

Roberts’ thesis simply posits that organized crime controls the United States and has since at least 1963. The Skeleton Key begins in 1932, introducing readers to Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who would one day marry Jackie Kennedy. The Key tells us he made his first million selling “Turkish Tobacco (opium)” in Argentina and during Prohibition used his ships to smuggle alcohol into Boston for Joseph Kennedy. As crowned head of the international Mafia, Onassis brokered a lucrative deal with the Seven Sisters (major oil companies) whereby they would swindle the Arabs out of their oil and transport it using the fleet of surplus World War 2 “Liberty ships” Onassis had acquired from the US at bargain prices. According to Gemstone, Onassis established a power base in the United States by usurping Howard Hughes’s empire. He kidnapped Hughes and arranged a widely publicized “fake” marriage to explain his seclusion. Then Onassis, who needed Hughes’s signature until a computer could successfully reproduce it, parked Hughes on Skorpios, his private island in the Ionian Sea, turning Hughes into a junkie in order to force his compliance. Onassis then adopted Hughes’s “game plan” of buying up senators, judges, congressmen, governors, and major media organizations to take “legal” control of the government en masse for selfish advantage.

The Key states that Joseph Kennedy had “reminded Onassis of an old Mafia promise: the presidency for a Kennedy.” Onassis agreed but naturally expected the Kennedys to behave themselves and follow orders. As long as Joseph was directing their affairs, John and Bobby cooperated, but after the elder Kennedy suffered a stroke, his control ended. The brothers embodied new attitudes that sympathetic Americans considered innovative and bold but which detractors perceived as cavalier and arrogant. From the perspective of the Kennedys’ underworld sponsors, the brothers appeared ungrateful and renegade—Onassis angered that John Kennedy “welches” on a Mafia deal. “The rest, as they say, is history” the Key says. “Onassis was so confident of his control over police. media, FBI, CIA, Secret Service and the U.S. judicial system that he had JFK murdered before the eyes of the nation; then systematically bought off, killed off or frightened off all witnesses, and had the evidence destroyed; then put a 75-year seal of secrecy over the whole matter.”

There are several convincing motives for the Kennedys’ murders, and they are not mutually exclusive. In 1961 they had arrested the owner of Air Thailand, whose planes had been flying Onassis’s heroin out of Southeast Asia’s Golden Triangle; President Kennedy refused to provide air cover at the Bay of Pigs, infuriating the hawks who had arranged the invasion behind his back. Aggravating the situation, Kennedy fired cold warrior and intelligence community icon Allen Dulles as CIA director for lying to him about the Bay of Pigs operation; He supported a bill to revoke the oil depletion allowance, inspiring enmity from oil producers in states such as Texas; He challenged the privately owned and deceptively misnamed Federal Reserve System, essentially a central bank, by ordering the Department of Treasury to issue debt and interest-free currency called “United States Notes,” rather than debt-laden “Federal Reserve Notes.” As Attorney General, Robert Kennedy began prosecuting members of the Mafia; and President Kennedy intended to modify labor and tax laws so that previously exempt foreign ships could be taxed, presumably a significant issue for shipping tycoons like Onassis.

Interestingly, Allen Dulles had received help in forming the CIA from German spymaster Reinhard Gehlen—Adolph Hitler’s chief intelligence officer against the Soviet Union. Hawks in the US military-industrial complex shared the Nazis’ rabid ideological hatred of the Soviets, a perplexing attitude considering that without Russia the Allies would not have won World War 2.

Dulles largely controlled the Warren Commission, causing critics to question its impartiality and consequently the reliability of its conclusions. Perhaps even more significantly, President Kennedy had vowed to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” He formalized his intentions on October 11, 1963 by filing National Security Action Memorandum 263. His announcing that he intended to withdraw a thousand troops from Vietnam by the end of 1963 portended a profit-threatening end to the Vietnam War.

Consider the following two examples of claims made in the Skeleton Key that have been validated by subsequent historical developments. Referring to the John Kennedy assassination, the Key claims one of the shooters “went down a manhole and followed a sewer line away from Dealey Plaza.” Remember, this was written in 1975. In the 1990s I was watching a History Channel program called “The Men Who Killed Kennedy”—a segment featuring Tom Wilson, who had developed for US Steel a process called “photonics” to detect product imperfections. Wilson applied this new technology to photos in the Kennedy assassination, including the Mary Moorman photo, which she took almost simultaneously with the fatal head shot. Wilson constructed a three-dimensional model of Kennedy’s gaping rear head wound and from that traced back the path of the bullet, amazed to see it was coming “out of the ground.”

Wilson went to Dealey Plaza and discovered that the path he anticipated led directly to a manhole cover and storm drain. In other words, someone could have been crouching underground shooting at Kennedy from the street. Subsequent studies by a researcher named Jack Brazil have determined that shooters from behind the picket fence on the Grassy Knoll and from the curb on Elm Street could have “squeezed off rounds” and escaped underground in about twenty minutes. The sewer lines lead to the Trinity River well away from Dealey Plaza.

Here is another claim the Key makes that sounded unlikely to me in 1976: “Lots of heroin gets produced in a Pepsi Cola factory in Laos. So far, it hasn’t produced a single bottle of Pepsi Cola.” I hadn’t yet learned about the CIA’s “Air America” drug flights, but this was another truth that Roberts understood long before most of the herd. In 1990 Mel Gibson and Robert Downey, Jr. starred in a film called Air America. The film includes the Pepsi-Cola factory, the CIA, and the heroin. Details like these over the years make me believe that Bruce Roberts knew more than the average citizen about past history and current events. Eventually, Caruana trekked to San Francisco to meet Roberts—a story she details in her 2006 book, The Gemstone File: A Memoir—to validate what he was telling her. She intended to visit the various embassies Roberts had mentioned. If he had written to them as he claimed, his letters should be in their files.

“I wanted to know if Roberts was telling me the truth. He gave me a note that said, ‘This is my permission to let the bearer look at my letters,’” Caruana explained. “I didn’t succeed at first. The Russian Embassy threw me out, and believe me, I did not want to go. At that time you really didn’t just want to go marching up to the Russian consulate; it was the middle of the Cold War! The embassy of an Arab country didn’t cooperate either,” she said. Eventually, however, Caruana found the verification she had been seeking:

At the Norwegian Consulate there was this secretary who didn’t know what I was looking for. I just went up to her and said I’d like to read Bruce Roberts’ letters that he gave the embassy, and she said okay. So I had one day of joy of reading these letters, and it did a lot for me because then I knew he was telling me the truth as far as I could check it out, but he really did give letters to this consulate; they have them in a file folder! Then the next day I went back to get more of it, and as I said, it was those notes that I made on that first day that was the basis of the Gemstone Skeleton Key. I did them all in one afternoon. I had of course read the background of the 360 pages that Mae had, but I didn’t have a single one of those. I think I did a good job on it, and I know Bruce liked it. That was something that helped me a great deal.

A few days later I noticed that my phone had been tapped. I returned to the Norwegian consulate with my notebook, hoping to take more notes, but the consul told me I couldn’t read or take any more notes at the consulate. Then he told me he had spoken to Roberts, and had asked him about me. Roberts had suggested that he read the Playgirl article, and he had done so. Then he asked me whether I had read it. I told him I had written it. Then he pulled out another long new letter Bruce had just given him, and told me that since he had just received this letter from Roberts, and since he had not yet given it to the consulate library, it was still legally his property and he could legally give it to me to read. He offered to lend me the letter, which was an original letter, not a Xerox copy, and asked me to read the letter carefully, note whatever it said that pertained to Norway, and then return the original letter to him. I did that, made a copy of that letter, and returned the original letter to him. I originally prepared the Skeleton Key for my own use, but when Bruce called me in February, 1975 and told me he was sick and in the hospital, I decided to fight back on his behalf by releasing the Skeleton Key, as I did, in March 1975.

Caruana realized that people could easily get sidetracked in minutiae and miss the global picture, so she felt it was important to provide the public with a taste of Robert’s material that was accessible—somewhat organized, chronological, and cross-referenced. Robert’s writing style is repetitive, minutely detailed, and occasionally cryptic and manic. It demands much of the average reader. The Skeleton Key condenses and refines the ideas yet provides enough background to correlate seemingly unrelated events. Caruana reports that when she first gave Roberts a copy of the Key, he reacted by saying, “Why did you do that?” But not long after he was requesting copies to show people. Roberts could not have written the Key himself; he was too mired in the details and emotions of the story. Conversely, Caruana could write well but wasn’t overly invested in the material, which could compromise objectivity.

When Caruana first typed the Skeleton Key on her IBM Selectric typewriter, she included her name and address on the copy she Xeroxed and distributed. After that, however, the file was retyped, often by people who would add or delete parts according to their taste or bias, and these copies were reproduced thousands of times around the world with Caruana’s name missing. She has said she was never averse to having her name associated with the file, yet many who have read the Key don’t know she wrote it.

I acquired my first copy of “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File” from my high school history teacher, Henry Denny, who now lives near Prescott, Arizona. Mr. Denny said he was shocked when he first read the Key because it contrasted so sharply with everything he’d learned and taught as a student and teacher of history. He couldn’t quite believe the Key was completely true, he said, but it did compel him to look more deeply.

“Bruce Roberts filled in a lot of gaps in many of the official reports. There were too many gaps in the Warren Commission Report, too many gaps in the other accounts of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. and so many others,” Denny said. “The Skeleton Key opened those avenues of inquiry for me to really investigate what went on. So much information Roberts mentions in the Skeleton Key has turned out to be accurate.”

While the claims made in the Skeleton Key are unsettling, I have always felt the document possesses an internal consistency that justifies our withholding immediate judgment and examining its details more closely. Bruce Roberts’ Gemstone letters, as conveyed to us by Stephanie Caruana, redefine the stereotypical definition of “Mafia,” the kind of caricature and even glorification we often see in media portrayals, and paint for us a truer picture that shows how deeply the roots of organized crime intertwine every aspect of US politics and culture. While I can’t say with certainty that “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File” is completely true, I am convinced that it’s truthful.

Latest ISIS Video Threatens New York City: “The NYPD Will Protect You” (VIDEO)


By: Melissa Dykes, Truthstream Media |

ISIS has reportedly released a new propaganda video not so subtly claiming they will strike New York City next. “The video reaffirms the message that New York City remains a top terrorist target,” the NYPD said in a statement.

The video uses what many have commented is stock footage of several locations around the city including Times Square, a T.G.I. Fridays restaurant (guess the terrorists hate schwag), a Gap store located in Herald Square, and random scenes of yellow taxis. The video also includes terrorists wearing suicide belts. It has been pointed out that some of the footage is from a previous video threatening the city.

NYPD says the city is on a “heightened state of vigilance” but no one should live in fear, see something say something etc. (you know, the usual stuff they always say when this happens).

“No city is better prepared to protect against terrorist attack,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in a press conference, urging residents to “be aware but not afraid” while telling them stuff that would essentially make them afraid. “The NYPD will protect you. We will not be intimidated and we will not live in fear.”

Mayor De Blasio said, “Stoking fear is the goal of terrorist organizations…” and then he went on to stoke some fear about the ISIS video, likely causing some people to get confused about who exactly the terrorist organization was.

They don’t want people to be afraid, but obviously even though no one is taking this poorly produced video seriously, they are hosting press conferences and releasing statements and forcing the idea into everyone’s minds that an ISIS attack on NYC might be forthcoming.

So live in fear but don’t live in fear while you are living in fear… because the take away message is fear.

ISIS Is Being Aimed At The West By Globalists – Here’s What We Can Do About It


Over the past year and a half, I have been writing on the engineered nature of ISIS, delving deeply into its history and its backing by Western intelligence agencies in articles such as “Is Martial Law Justified If ISIS Attacks?” as well as “What Will You Do When Tyranny And Terrorism Work Hand In Hand?” and “The Time Is Ripe For A False Flag Attack On American Soil.”

Specifically, I compared the ISIS phenomenon to another establishment-backed terrorist program that began at the onset of the Cold War in Europe and was publicly exposed in the 1990s. That program was called Operation Gladio.

Gladio involved the manipulation of existing extremist groups as well as the complete fabrication of terrorist cells within Europe claiming to be “left-wing.” The reality was that these terrorist cells were made up of intelligence agency operatives (including CIA operatives) acting as handlers often for duped scapegoats and patsies. These proxy terrorists initiated decades of attacks in Europe, which focused on shootings and bombings in public areas with full media saturation. Gladio-influenced cells, such as Action Directe, carried out at least 50 different violent attacks in France in the 1970s and 1980s, along with groups like Red Army Faction, Black September and the PLFP.

Governments across Europe began using the attacks as a rallying cry for a centralized one-European nation; that cry culminated in the formation of the EU.

Operation Gladio began in France in 1947, when French Interior Minister Edouard Depreux revealed the existence of a secret stay-behind army codenamed “Plan Bleu.”

In France in 1948, the Western Union Clandestine Committee (WUCC) was created to coordinate secret unorthodox warfare. After the creation of NATO a year later, the WUCC was integrated into the military alliance under the name Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC).

The former director of the French intelligence service DGSE, Adm. Pierre Lacoste, said in a 1992 interview with The Nation, that France’s “secret army” was involved in terrorist activities against Charles de Gaulle, whom the CIA wanted to assassinate.

De Gaulle was apparently not entirely innocent in the Gladio affair, either. De Gaulle was very familiar with a secret organization called Service d’ Action Civique. It ended up being exposed as a training ground for Gladio Agents under Jaques Foccart, a government “adviser” who would go on to mastermind multiple military coups in Africa. Whether de Gaulle was fully aware of this problem is not known. It was discovered, though, that SAC had infiltrated communist student groups in the late 1960s through the 1970s and attempted to provoke violent actions.

De Gaulle was eventually driven out of office after the 1969 failure of the Referendum of Regionalisation. He was replaced by Georges Pompidou, who (what a surprise) was an avid promoter of European unification (centralization). Pompidou founded the French arm of the Pan-European Union Movement. And immediately after he took de Gaulle’s position, he helped initiate the European Communities Summit, which led directly to the formation of the European Union structure.

Gladio was not fully exposed to the wider public until 1990 when Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti came forward to the senate with detailed information.  After the information hit the mainstream, the European Parliament was forced to write a resolution against any future false flag projects.  Clearly, they have since ignored these promises.

For more information on Gladio, I highly recommend the intensively researched book “NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation GLADIO and Terrorism in Western Europe” by Daniele Ganser, as well as the 1992 BBC documentary “Operation Gladio.”

As I have stated time and time again, government engineered crisis is designed to do one thing: drive the fearful public toward more centralization and less freedom. Although Operation Gladio was later exposed, it was too late; Gladio (along with other clandestine economic measures) had achieved the goal of a malleable citizenry desperate for more centralized governance; a social attitude which led to a transnational union in Europe with a single currency mechanism.

What does this have to do with ISIS? In order to defeat an enemy, you have to know where he comes from, what his motivations are, and who pulls his strings if he has any.  As I predicted in the pieces linked at the beginning of this article, ISIS has now been exposed as being supported if not entirely funded and managed by Western covert intelligence through documents obtained from the Department of Defense by Judicial Watch, making ISIS very similar to Gladio in its origins and tactics.

This DoD paper should not have been at all surprising to most of us in the liberty movement. The West had been shifting militants from Libya into Syria just before protests suddenly erupted into all-out war. Instructors from the U.K. and France, under U.S. advisement, had been training militants in Jordan specifically for the purpose of invading and disrupting Syria and overthrowing president Bashar Assad. This training continued well after it became clear that the same militants had formed under the banner of ISIS.

Establishment elites have openly applauded the radicalization of insurgents in Syria. The Council on Foreign Relations argued that the inclusion of what they called “extremist al-Qaida elements” in the Syrian insurgency “improved the moral” of the movement, stating that the “Free Syrian Army needs al-Qaida now.” The CFR acknowledges that the goal of al-Qaida operatives in Syria is not necessarily to overthrow Assad, but to establish an Islamic state. Despite this, the CFR continued to support the same strategy of militant training to overthrow Assad.

The facts are this:

– ISIS was created by covert intelligence and continues to be trained and supplied by Western governments.

– The tactics ISIS uses, including monstrous acts of genocide, were clearly taught to them by covert intelligence interests (look into the School of the Americas for similar programs), considering ISIS insurgents continue to receive aid from Western intelligence despite their behavior.

– Western governments are well aware that ISIS agents have been inserted into refugee camps and are being imported into Europe and the U.S.

– ISIS smugglers have openly admitted to this infiltration plan, yet the U.S. and EU governments continued the immigration surge.

– Lower echelon ISIS fighters that have actually been captured and interviewed apparently have wide-ranging views on Islam and are not the staunchly unified theocratic zealots the Western public has been led to believe. This is a considerable departure from groups like al-Qaida (also Western funded and trained), which required complete theological conformity.

In truth, the only unifying drive of many captured ISIS fighters has been a concerted hatred of the West and the U.S. in particular due to our government’s complete destabilization of the Middle East. Meaning, the establishment (globalists) brought chaos to the Middle East, then conjured the rise of ISIS out of that despair, then used ISIS to recruit young men with a hatred for the West, and has now led those fighters right to our doorstep.

The escalation of force in Syria by both Russia and the West is likely now useless, as thousands of ISIS insurgents have been removed from the combat zone and transported exactly where they prefer to be — right next door to us. But defeating ISIS has never been the goal.

One must conclude given these facts that the plan by the establishment to force public acceptance of Syrian mass immigration was a Trojan horse strategy to plant ISIS extremists within deadly proximity to western civilians. But why?

Again, this is yet another Gladio-style program designed to strike terror in the hearts of the public and condition them into accepting even greater centralization and less freedom. A European superstate with common border security and a single government authority will certainly be on the table soon. Not to mention, martial law is essentially in place in France today and will be expanded to other EU members as the attacks continue. As with Gladio, Europeans should expect many more events like the Paris attacks in the months to come.

The U.S. is set to receive over 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next couple months. Unlike in Europe, where numerous activist groups have been able to partially track numbers and types of people within refugee groups, Americans have little access to information surrounding Syrian immigration to the U.S. I suspect that, as in Europe, the claims that the refugees are only “single mothers, children and religious minorities” is mostly false, and many of them are actually single military-age males.

In the U.S., the federal government has been legally positioning for martial law for years, from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and its indefinite-detention-without-trial provisions that apply to citizens, to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and mass surveillance measures without warrant, to resource confiscation provisions through executive order that apply during any event the White House labels an “emergency,” to elitist insiders like Wesley Clark planting the concept on national television of World War II-style internment camps for citizens deemed hostile to the status quo.

I would also point out that the U.S., and the global economy in general, is currently witnessing a massive slowdown rivaling the credit collapse of 2008. Widespread terrorist attacks are a perfect rationalization for a complete lockdown of Western peoples, as well as a perfect distraction from the banker-generated economic implosion that is progressing in exponentially harsher stages as we head into 2016.

Another major advantage to consider to the Paris attacks is that now, with a Syrian passport being conveniently found on one of the terrorists (possibly fake), the war in Syria is given greater rationale while the immigration plan continues unabated. NATO countries are gearing up for a large-scale assault in the region, while Russia is already entrenched. Imagine the potential for an “accidental” trigger event between the East and West as Russian troops and planes come within spitting distance of NATO troops and planes.

Americans should see a Paris-level attack as inevitable in the near term. They should expect similar events in unusual areas of the country, including more suburban and rural areas to ensure that no one feels safe anywhere. They should expect that said attacks will be high frequency and that they will occur in a coordinated manner. This is how Gladio operated, and this is undoubtedly how ISIS will operate.

The question is: What can be done about it?

We must first recognize that ISIS is only a surface problem; the deeper problem is corrupt governments across the globe creating dangerous terrorist groups out of thin air.  That said, ISIS is still a threat, and must be dealt with along with globalists.

If the government insists upon financing and training dangerous militant groups and directly immigrating them along with Syrian refugees without any vetting whatsoever, if they insist on wide open borders, then there is not much we can do to prevent ISIS from slipping into the U.S. We also cannot go the fascist route and round up every Muslim in the name of security as some neocons are suggesting; this is exactly what the elites want, public support for liberty destroying measures against one group that can then be applied to ALL groups.

We can, though, take some measures that we should have been instituting all along.

Higher pressure on prime immigration centers: Legal immigration should not be an issue normally, but it has been made an issue due to deliberately lax security measures by the federal government. If the government is not going to take action, then the American people must. There are a limited number of these relocation centers in the U.S.; and activist pressure could be applied, along with pressure on local and state officials. Michigan, Texas  and Alabama among other states have publicly announced that they will not be taking any more refugees until the government revises its vetting standards. That is a perfectly rational approach. Although I suspect the hour may be too late to disrupt the flow of ISIS sleeper cells into our country, we should do what we can to end the current insane immigration policies.

Locally managed border security: The federal border patrol simply is not getting the job done right now. And the great threat is that once an attack does occur within the U.S., the federal government will suggest a militarization of the border (or the entire nation) rather than taking simple measures they should have taken long ago. You see, the goal of false-flag terror is to motivate the public to demand more government power. This is why followers of the neoconservative mindset are idiotic. The establishment CREATED the problem of ISIS and potential ISIS immigration. And when it all goes sour, neocons cry out that the same government needs expanded militarized authority to do its job. I say, “No more.”

Border security should be handled at the local level rather than the federal level, meaning the people of the vulnerable states should be organizing their own security measure, patrols, alarms, response teams, etc. I am so tired of hearing that we should “let the professionals do the job.” Frankly, there are no “professionals” in the area of border security seeing as we now have wide-open borders. The locals have every right to secure their own states and will probably do a better job that the federal government ever has.

Your tactical response kit: Build an active-shooter kit for your vehicle and ALWAYS carry a sidearm, either open carry or concealed if you have a CCW. I open carry at all times as a matter of principle and have never been asked to leave an establishment as a result. But if you are worried about confrontation with people or businesses, then simply carry concealed. Open-carry citizens could dissuade attackers from striking a particular place altogether through blatant show of force, while CCW holders are less visible. There are advantages to both.

An active-shooter kit would require a lightweight folding-stock rifle or a short-barrel AR-style pistol with an arm brace, a lightweight tactical vest with mags and ammo, ballistic plates, smoke, a rifle light (for dark indoor spaces in particular; night vision with limited depth perception is far less effective than a simple light), a trauma kit with pressure bandages, celox gauze, tourniquets, chest seals, decompression needles, etc., as well as a radio communications kit.  All gear should be tailored to the individual’s expertise and needs.  This kit should be placed in a nondescript backpack or carrying case for easy transport. Obviously, train with all of your gear extensively before using it in the field.

Personal and team training for active shooters: The only way Americans can guarantee any measure of safety from a Paris-style attack is for as many citizens as possible to be armed and trained. This means mentally training to go TOWARD the sound of the shooting, rather than to run away from it, as well as tactical methods to marginalize a shooter’s ability to move and project violence. Team training is a must, and you should already be working within a group to learn how to function in combat without danger of friendly fire or misdirected fire that might put innocent bystanders at risk.

The common argument against citizens defending themselves is that they are untrained and are “likely to do more harm than good.” This is nonsense. One armed person in Paris could have made all the difference, as this man armed with a .38 revolver did when his church in South Africa came under attack by terrorists. Another argument is that when armed citizens respond aggressively to an attack, they risk being mistaken as terrorists by authorities. I have to point out that the authorities rarely arrive in time to accomplish anything, let alone mistake you on the scene as a terrorist while defending yourself.

Military-grade training far superior to the training mandated by law enforcement is widely available to U.S. citizens. It is time to accept that this is the world we live in now. Are you going to put blind faith in a corrupt government system that has deliberately put you in harm’s way, or are you going to take proactive measures to protect yourself and those around you? Make no mistake; your safety is in your hands whether you like it or not.

Russia’s New ‘Nuclear Torpedo’ Can Create Giant Tsunamis And Wipe Out Entire Coastal Cities


While the eyes of the world are on ISIS, Russia is creating weapons unlike anything the world has ever seen before.  Plans for a giant self-propelled nuclear torpedo that can create a giant tsunami more than 1,000 feet tall were recently “leaked by mistake” by the Russian media.  Apparently the warheads on these torpedos are designed to create so much radiation “that everything living will be killed” – including those that try to survive the attack by hiding in underground shelters.  These “robotic mini-submarines” would have a range of up to 10,000 kilometers and would be able to evade all existing U.S. detection systems.  To say that such a weapon would be a “game changer” would be a massive understatement.

I know that you are not just going to take my word for any of this.  So like I do in all of my articles, I am going to carefully document what I am saying.

The reason why we know about the plans for this new nuclear torpedo is because they were displayed on Russian state television for a few moments during a recent broadcast.  According to Russian officials, this was an “accident”.  The following comes from a report in the Independent

Secret plans for a new Russian nuclear torpedo system have been shown on state-controlled television in what the Kremlin said was an accident.

A close-up of a confidential document detailing “Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6” was broadcast for several seconds by Channel One Russia and NTV during coverage of a meeting between Vladimir Putin and military officials.

Could it be possible that this “accident” happened on purpose?

Could it be possible that it was intended as a warning for the Obama administration?

You never know.

But without a doubt, this is the kind of weapon that would keep military planners up at night.  According to RT, this new nuclear torpedo is designed to create “extensive zones of radioactive contamination” that would ensure that no “military, economic, business or other activity” would occur in that area for a very long time…

The presentation slide titled “Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6” showed some drawings of a new nuclear submarine weapons system. It is apparently designed to bypass NATO radars and any existing missile defense systems, while also causing heavy damage to “important economic facilities” along the enemy’s coastal regions.

The footnote to the slide stated that Status-6 is intended to cause “assured unacceptable damage” to an adversary force. Its detonation “in the area of the enemy coast” would result in “extensive zones of radioactive contamination” that would ensure that the region would not be used for “military, economic, business or other activity” for a “long time.”

In addition, Konstantin Sivkov of the Russian Geopolitical Academy told the BBC that this kind of weapon could be used to create a tsunami more than 1,000 feet high…

A warhead of up to 100 megatons could produce a tsunami up to 500m (1,650ft) high, wiping out all living things 1,500km (930 miles) deep inside US territory

As I have written about previously, a whopping 39 percent of all Americans live in counties that directly border a shoreline.  The detonation of just a handful of these weapons could wipe out the entire east coast and kill off a very substantial percentage of the U.S. population.

On top of all that, the BBC is reporting that a state-run Russian publication is suggesting that these new torpedos are being fitted with extremely radioactive cobalt warheads…

According to state-run Rossiiskaya Gazeta, the destructive power attributed to the new torpedo’s warhead would fit the description of a cobalt bomb.

That would be a type of thermonuclear warhead with a layer of cobalt-59, which on detonation would be transmuted into highly radioactive cobalt-60 with a half-life longer than five years.

Such a weapon would guarantee “that everything living will be killed”, the paper said – there would not even be any survivors in bunkers.

A cobalt bomb has never been tested because of the devastating radiation it would unleash.

Worst of all, we would have no advance warning that these torpedos were coming.  They can be launched from anywhere, they reportedly have a range of up to 10,000 kilometers, and they are designed to “avoid all acoustic tracking devices and other traps”

On the diagram the giant torpedo’s range is given as “up to 10,000km” (6,200 miles) and depth of trajectory is “up to 1,000m” (3,300ft).

It was developed by Rubin, a submarine design bureau in St Petersburg.

It would, apparently, be launched by nuclear-powered submarines of the 09852 “Belgorod” and 09851 “Khabarovsk” series.

Rossiiskaya Gazeta called the torpedo a “robotic mini-submarine”, travelling at 100 knots (185km/h; 115mph), which would “avoid all acoustic tracking devices and other traps”.

We already know that Russia has been building “black hole submarines” that NATO officials admit are undetectable.

So Russia already has the capability to approach our coastlines without us even knowing about it.

But these new nuclear torpedos take the game to an entirely new level.

And of course this is not the only new weapons system that Russia has been developing in anticipation of World War III.  Earlier this year, I discussed several more in an article entitled “The Next-Generation Weapons That Russia Will Use Against The United States In World War III“.

Sadly, the Obama administration seems almost totally oblivious to this threat.  Our strategic nuclear forces are so outdated that floppy disks and rotary phones are still being used, and Barack Obama is fond of saying that “the Cold War’s been over for 20 years“.

Unfortunately for us, the Russians do not see things the same way.  Anti-American sentiment inside Russia is at an all-time high, and every time the U.S. interferes in Syria or Ukraine the Russians get even angrier.

Just like we do, there are “talking heads” on Russian television that tell people what to think.  And many of these “talking heads” on Russian television are openly talking about how war with the United States is inevitable.  These days, the Russians consider themselves to be the great force for good in the world, and they consider America to be the great force for evil in the world.  In fact, one of their most popular talking heads named Alexander Dugin has publicly called the U.S. the “kingdom of the Antichrist”.

And even though the Russian economy has dipped into recession, the Russians continue to feverishly prepare for war.  This year alone, Russian military spending is up 33 percent.

Yes, ISIS is a far greater threat than most Americans would even dare to imagine as I discussed yesterday.  In the times to come, I fully expect to see terror attacks inside this country unlike anything we have ever seen before.

But I am completely convinced that the greater long-term strategic threat is Russia.

The Russians are feverishly preparing for World War III while Barack Obama acts like it could never possibly happen.

Hopefully Obama is right, because if he is wrong the consequences for this nation will be absolutely unthinkable.

The “War On Terror” Is A War On Civilian Populations (VIDEOS)

war on terror

(The Real Agenda) The “War on Terror” is a hoax. It is the most powerful tool to wage war on civilians. This is as evident as the fact that the sun rises every morning and goes down in the evening. The so-called war on terrorism is nothing else than an instrument used by a tiny elite, whose desire is to return to neocolonialism and neoimperialism.

NATO has been waging war against civilians for decades. The government of Israel has been waging war against defenseless Palestinians. France and the United States have been bombing Yemen and Syria, where upwards of 220,000 innocent civilians have been killed.

In Iraq, the US and its allies murdered at least 1,000,000 people. In Afghanistan and Yemen, people are also bombed from the air as Obama uses drones to supposedly attack terrorists.

In Europe, the neocolonialists have been using fear as their tool to scare people into submission. They have been doing this for decades. The same has been done in the United States and all over Latina America. In Peru, Shinning Path was supported by neoimperialists from abroad.

In Colombia, guerrillas such as FARC have been financed and trained by intelligence agencies. In Central America and Mexico, the drug cartels are owned and/or supported by globalists who seek to destroy sovereign nations that do not align with their plans of global conquest.

The goal of the continuous state of war is to force people to submit to a state of affairs that does not serve their interests, but that does serve the interests of the members of the tyrannical ruling elite.

Now, it is time for Europe to acquiesce to the desires of the elite. They have begun to execute their plan to use proxy terror organizations to instill fear on the population so they accept the coming all mighty Surveillance State that is already locked and loaded.

The goal is to destroy nation-states that are resisting American and Israeli hegemony by means of cultural shock and balkanization via an open-borders policy and the plan to “redistribute wealth” from the middle classes of the developed nations to the richest members of the elite all over the planet in the form of carbon taxes.

The financiers of the corrupt elite play their fear and terrorism cards over and over again. They did it on 9/11 and have done in Paris on 13 November. On 9/11 drills were being run by different US government agencies on the same day when the attacks took place. The same is truth for the 13/11 attacks on Paris.

On 9/11 mysterious passports appeared at the crime scene in New York which allegedly belong to the hijackers who crashed the planes into the twin towers. A similar outcome took place in Paris on Friday, as passports that supposedly belonged to the bombers also appeared outside the Bataclan theater. Just as it happened on 9/11 with the Bush administration, the French government had previous knowledge about the potential threat of terror attacks but did nothing to prevent it. Both the Iraqi and Turkish governments warned France about imminent attacks.

As if all of this wasn’t enough information to raise suspicion about the timing of the bombings in Paris, we know now that western financiers, members of the elite that would have us believe that ISIS is operating on its own, have been backing up the terror organization. According to a report from, at least 40 individual businessmen from G20 countries have been spending part of their fortune to prop up ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Sputniknews’s reports are sourced from Russian intelligence that shows “data on the financing of Islamic State units by natural persons in various countries.”

The revelation was made by Russian president, Vladimir Putin at a G20 press conference. Putin spoke right after US president, Barack Obama held another press conference in which he appeared to be clueless about what has been going on in the Middle East and North Africa. “The financing comes from 40 countries, as we established, including some G20 members,” Putin told the press at the G20 Summit in Turkey.

“This topic (the war on the terror) was crucial. Especially after the Paris tragedy, we all understand that the means of financing terrorism should be severed,” Putin said. According to Sputniknews, Russia has also presented satellite images and aerial photos that show a clearer picture of the actual scale of the Islamic State oil trade.

“I’ve demonstrated the pictures from space to our colleagues, which clearly show the true size of the illegal trade of oil and petroleum products market. Car convoys stretching for dozens of kilometers, going beyond the horizon when seen from a height of four-five thousand meters,” Putin told reporters after the G20 summit.

It has also been revealed that ISIS convoys have been escorted by what appear to be American Apache helicopters while they travel long distances throughout Syria. The video can be seen below.

While the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel supporting ISIS operations in Syria and Iraq, Europeans and Americans still believe that swift action by their governments is the only solution to combat the threat of terrorism. This belief could not be further from the truth, according to French political author Gearoid O Colmain. Mr. O Colmain appeared on Russia Today to explain what is really going on in Europe and what the recent attacks in Paris are aiming for.

“We are being told that there is a state of war and a state of emergency, and we’ve had this before in January about the threat of radical Islam and terrorist groups. It has been accentuated with the media campaign, which is essentially a propaganda campaign so people in France fear Muslims.”

Mr. O Colmain referenced the fact that just as the attacks on Paris were orchestrated from abroad, as stated by the French president, François Hollande, so are the attacks perpetrated on Syria, Libya, Palestine, Iraq and other nations in the region. O Colmain called the current bombing campaign in Syria a terrorist operation that is being directed from the West.

“People in Europe need to understand that the is a war that is becoming global that is being waged against civilian populations. In particular, it is a form of neo-imperialism and neocolonialism which aims to divide and conquer European and African and Middle Eastern populations to make them submit to a global order that does not serve the interests of most of the people, but that does serve the interests of a very small ruling elite.”

You can watch the complete 11-minute interview with Gearoid O Colmain below.

The result of the ongoing terror campaigns, both in Europe and in Syria, by proxy groups that work on behalf of the elite, is governments amassing more power. Yesterday, President François Hollande made a speech during an extraordinary session of the French Parliament. In his speech, Hollande did everything humanly possible to emphasize the importance of giving more power to his government to combat terrorism. Hollande’s words seemed to have been taken from the George W. Bush’s bible.

Hollande announced that the current state of emergency would be extended for three months. He then asked for broader power to ‘fight terrorism’, telling parliament to vote YES on new measures to change existing ‘regimes’ that were not up to par with the latest developments. The French president said that it was necessary to take ‘exceptional measures’ and to review the Constitution to better ‘fight terrorism’. Where have we heard this before? That is right: our of George W. Bush’s mouth after 9/11.

The French leader, who does not feel very comfortable reading from a prepared script, said that terror suspects should undergo a very strict surveillance, however, he did not explain how the government would go about determining who is a terror suspect or if people’s constitutional rights would be upheld. Hollande announced the 5,000 new law enforcement positions will be created in France in the name of fighting terrorism, as he called for propping up military and surveillance state.

As Mr. O Colmain said in his interview, populations need to understand that the elite intends to wage war on them, not on terrorists. They need to understand that the war on terror is a hoax used by governments to have an excuse to take away freedom. They need to realize that from now on, the campaign led by the military industrial complex, the owners of the mainstream media that propagandize the airwaves with the “threat of terrorism” to justify a perpetual state of war, will not stop at anything to give up on their plan to annihilate innocent people for the sake of power and money.

Like George Carlin said, the elite “is a big club and you ain’t in it.”

Atlanta TSA Failed To Catch Man With Loaded Gun On Airplane (VIDEO)

Man With Loaded Gun On Airplane

The Transportation Security Agency is responding after a big security failure at one of America’s busiest airports.

A man says he brought a loaded gun through security at Atlanta’s airport and boarded a Southwest flight without anyone stopping him.

Blake Alford says he didn’t know the gun was in his bag until he arrived at his destination. Alford says it was an innocent mistake, but he felt that he had to come forward.

“I just want to do the right thing. I didn’t want to get into trouble. I didn’t want to get anybody in trouble. I guess wanted every body to realize we need to tighten up,” said Alford.

In response, the TSA says it’s investigating the incident and will re-train employees as necessary.

On Tuesday, a replica handgun was discovered at ANOTHER busy airport. Details here.

Hypertension, Mass Hysteria And The Imaginarium


Welcome to dystopia – where anything goes as long as it’s according to plan. Not a natural one, but a fabricated design. This obviously staged and protracted hysteria in Paris is the latest of a long line of manufactured events intended to throw humanity into complete disorientation and vulnerablity.

This is what social engineering is all about, creating an atmosphere where whatever meme or intentioned mechanism they wish to introduce into the ongoing narrative is most readily received.

It has long been known that a state of anxiety and fear is most conducive to human entrainment. Manipulators have used this for eons when exercising their control systems on populations. Today in this full spectrum war on humanity they use the term “strategy of tension” in the geopolitical realm. This is the modus operandi of intelligence agencies as exemplified in the infamous Operation Gladio set in place in Europe following WW2,  provocateurs of which have since been behind virtually every supposed terror attack dating back to the 40’s in order to keep Europe destabilized.

This is now a global phenomenon because it apparently works so well.

Paris is just such an attack. The ensuing war propaganda and mandated weapons budget increases tell you exactly who is behind these attacks, along with the state crackdowns on citizens that also accompany each of these operations. 9/11 is the most glaring example, and is apparently the template they’ve since followed due to its enormous effectiveness. The Paris operation mimicked it almost to a T.


Wearing Down the Human Psyche

Media madness overload is once again suffocating the airwaves, and it has a very profound effect. This is why they have to prop up and reaffirm this massive scare tactic by filling the streets with military assets, images of which are plastered around the world. Curfews and extreme control measures are concurrently set in place to further buttress this meme.

This gives it all a sense of tactile reality and massively reinforces the so-called reality they’ve imposed.

What happens with these crushing onslaughts of propaganda and shows of force over time is a kind of mental and psychological weariness and even breakdown, causing further acquiescence to the maneuvers of the state. This is why those who haven’t been armed ahead of time with how these minions operate become even more adamant that all of this manufactured nonsense is real and that the wars and controls are justified, despite that fact of it being staged is so glaringly obvious to the informed.

Hyped News and Migration Madness

Add to this the so-called onslaught of middle eastern migrants, supposedly infiltrated by mad murderers capable of such carnage as the Paris event. The US, of course, is further hyping this hysteria in every way possible, including saying ISIS is targeting a myriad of US cities with even tactical nuclear weapons. And for some unknown reason, armed and guarded military bases are being “robbed” of their weapons and materials while others are simply “lost”.

Really? How people can fall for all of this escapes me.

But how’s all of this going to sit with people? All the while economies continue to tumble, people are having very real income issues as the globalists’ minions tighten the screws, and markets are in a supposed near crash status, all while the looming threat of World War 3 rattles regularly in the news.

One thing we need to learn to do is to never take the news at face value. Never. How many migrants really are flooding into Europe, or even the US? Not to minimize this massive agenda to further destabilize every nation they can, but how do we really know what is really transpiring?

Just look at how much war “news” is found to be completely unfounded. And how many elements of these many false flag attacks turned out to be completely fabricated, with no evidence to back up their wildly sensational claims, never mind the many phony crisis actors they’ve put into the mix.

We have to be very careful what we take in as fact, as once we do that we’re susceptible to draw opinions and conclusions that may be off base and even playing into the hysteria programming. This is exactly what we witness happening to the general public, but remember there are many levels they work on.

It helps greatly to take a step back and observe all of this objectively and in a detached manner. After all, we are now living in a full on Orwellian state, in case you haven’t noticed.



Most people of the world are nowhere near any of this confusion going on. It’s a reality they take on from their television set and transpose to their own world. Governments around the world do the same, mimicking the moves of the larger more powerful nation states despite not experiencing the same issues and challenges.

This of course creates just the climate they want and makes the social environment much more conducive for the programs they wish to institute.

One only needs to look at Hollywood for the power of reality creation. Language is affected, dress styles change, ethics and morals are thrown completely off kilter,  consumerism is directed, daily lives are altered by new fears and imposed concerns –  the list is long. Governments and their propaganda arm called the mass media are exactly the same. It’s a known fact that the CIA and other hidden influences have infiltrated both Hollywood and the government for many decades influencing if not directing most of what we consume as both news and entertainment.

As CIA Director (1981-1987) William Casey famously said:

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

Let that sink in. People have tried to debunk this and other telling quotes of late but this has been thoroughly validated. (Link)

In other words, everything we’re being told is a lie, in one shape or form or another. If the so-called facts aren’t bogus, the context is twisted. If there is some truth to something, it’s being used to soften people up for the lie. Propaganda is the art of manipulation and they work hard at it.

The whirled we’re being told exists is nothing more than an imaginarium, a tale told by idiot would-be controllers who play with humanity like mice in a pen. The underlying problem, as well as potential solution, is that we are the ones who make it real by believing it.


Get Conscious and Shake It Off

It is this bad out there. But only in their projected world. Most people are caring individuals trying to do their best in life, loving their families and being good friends and neighbors. Where you’ll find society seriously degraded is in areas where the mind pollution has taken root and they’re mimicking the parasitic and selfish behaviors they’re picking up from the various forms of polluted media and infiltrated education.

America is not the world, nor the standard to live up to for everyone on this planet. Most can see the contamination and abject degradation and destructive nature of the American way of life. It’s clear to many that they’ve been corralled into it over a long period of time and have now become what they’ve consumed.

As the adage goes, “You are what you eat.” That goes for consuming propaganda as well.

It’s time people woke up to this insanity. It’s happening, but it’s a process. The would be controllers are making plenty of mistakes and seriously bungling almost all of these operations if people would look at the real facts. But we need to get that information out there where more can easily find it as much as possible. Keep hitting local media outlets with solid well researched information, surely there are some inside that have the cajones to finally stick their necks out with the truth. We have to find them.

Meanwhile, stay clear of all this – clear headed and clear hearted. Don’t let them pollute you with this toxic fear porn and ensuing manipulation.

The world they’re attempting to make us manifest is up to us to either believe, or shirk.

When we do see it for the imaginarium that it is, it has absolutely no power over us.

Much love, Zen

Campus Book Burning Nazis


Academia has reached a new low. The fabric of scholarship has been attacked from within and defenders of Free Speech are nowhere to be found from the University hierarchy. Has anything been learned since the heady days of 1960’s campus confrontations? It seems that the only learning process that has survived is that the caliber of intellectual acumen has sunk into the thrones of totalitarian hysteria. A refresher course is needed for all those too young to recall the Origin of Free Speech Movement at Berkeley celebrated 50 years later.

“After Berkeley students took part in civil rights protests against Bay Area businesses and at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco, the dean of students notified student organizations that the walkway was university property and could not be used “to support or advocate off-campus political or social action.”

Students defiantly set up tables on the walkway and within the campus. The civil disobedience came to a head on Oct. 1, when police tried to arrest a former student staffing a table for the Congress on Racial Equality. Hundreds of students surrounded the police car to keep it from carrying him away.”

Compare this civil disobedience action to the latest exercise of student power as cited by Bill Barlow at The Harvard Law Record, Fascism at Yale.

“Yale has recently endured a firestorm of protest after a lecturer that presides over one of the undergraduate colleges questioned whether concerns about the offensiveness of Halloween costumes had gone too far in impinging on free speech.

In response, hundreds of protesters gathered on the quad, calling for Nicholas and Erika Christakis to be removed from their roles. Nicholas voluntarily came to discuss the matter with them, and soon, a crowd of students enveloped him.

One student is heard saying, “Walk away. He doesn’t deserve to be listened to.” When Nicholas started to explain himself, a student yells, “Be quiet!” and then proceeds to lecture him. When Nicholas calmly and politely says “I disagree,” the protestor explodes, screaming, “Why the fuck did you accept the position?! Who the fuck hired you?! You should step down!” Then, finally, “You’re disgusting!”

The problem here isn’t that people disagree with what Nicholas said. The problem is that they are calling for reprisals against Nicholas and Erika simply for saying it. This recent movement of university students to use administrative procedures to punish speech with which they disagree should be called by its rightful name: proto-fascism.”

Who holds the authority to stifle expression of thought on campus? The answer has no heroes. College administrators and faculty has been AWOL for decades from lifting the pursuit of serious and meaningful dialogue. As for students, even using that term, does an injustice to the Socratic Method of inquiry. The cruel harsh reality is that the overwhelming majority of matriculated enrollees have never mastered the skills, discipline and aptitude to qualify as an apprentice for higher education.

The fact of the matter is that government schools have been entirely successful in producing the systemic destruction of brain cells from the earliest indoctrination to the egalitarian society. The net result is a population of dense and stupid parasites that see life as a free ride right of entitlement that must be fulfilled by government and paid for by someone else. The Mizzou Concerned Student 1950 list of demands has little to do with academic excellence or racial integration.

After the seven long years of the Obama linguistic rule that has distorted sensible thinking for cultural repression, it comes as no shock that mentally defective losers obstruct and extinguish any voices of reason and balance that contradict their version of “social justice”.

The book burners on campus never were qualified for admission to institutes of learning the art of critical thinking and application of social responsibility.

It is beyond dispute that esteemed higher education citadels are a total failure in teaching genuine American history and the principles upon which this nation was founded. Today their mission is really all about the transformation of recent and current generations into buffoons of liberalized rhetoric without the aptitude to even understand the nature of the blabber they parrot.

The collectivist mantra, which is a formula for national destruction, is totally beyond any redemptive qualities. Understanding this fact is well beyond the abilities of the damaged goods that pass as college graduates.

It is high time to abandon the illusion that a college education is a noble goal for most government schooled chumps. At the center of creating this preposterous mythos that it is necessary to go into debt to pay for a degree to get a job, is the obscene university structure of endowment promulgation.

College Education Economics has become the opium of the people, to put it in an updated Marxist version of state mandated redistribution. Churning out gangs of commissars looking for forgiveness of student loans proves that the corporatists and their elite allies have been successful in herding their flock of deadbeats onto the collectivist welfare dole.

An amusing twist from the last GOP debates was, “Welders make more money than philosophers,” Mr. Rubio said. “We need more welders and less philosophers.” The NYT cites,

“It’s certainly valuable to get a vocational degree, but I think there is sort of a misperception of the value of getting a philosophy degree or a humanities degree in general,” said Cheshire Calhoun, a philosophy professor at Arizona State University and chairwoman of the American Philosophical Association.

Ms. Calhoun notes that philosophy is not about toga-wearing thinkers who stroke big beards these days. Rather, she says, the degree denotes skills in critical thinking and writing that are valuable in a variety of fields that can pay extremely well.”

Cheshire Calhoun makes the correct assessment that “skills in critical thinking and writing that are valuable”, but does not have to defend the need that gainful employment is the ultimate goal. The essential element that is absent in virtually even corner of society is the ability to THINK.

Campus authoritarians are the exact embodiment of all the abuses that the original Free Speech movement railed about. So much for progress! In the era of the post “Great Society”, the central government empire expansion has created a population that automatically demands more assistance to compensate for their own inadequacy.

The plantation overseer has become the mob.

Activists in the 1960’s based their dissent on challenging the system with the tactic of civil disobedience. In today’s “PC” culture, the objective is to force collectivism upon society, using bullying as an obnoxious conduct to intimidate, that which cannot be created by civil means.

Advocating brute muscle, as Melissa Click shouted deserves push back. Investigative journalism is targeted for extinction by the book burners, who are imposing their own variant of censorship, have more in common with Joseph Goebbels than Martin Luther King.

Marco Rubio’s support for the blue collar trades will certainly fall on deaf ears with the current sect of sharecroppers taking worthless courses on useless campuses. Working for a living never gets included into the compulsory curriculums.

The globalist plan for relying on the intentional reduction of human labor for economic activity relegates student patsies to a life of bitterness and marginal existence.

If the forces of banning open discussions and sincere dialogue are left to dictate the academic experience, just what is worth protecting in the ivory towers of intolerance and conformity? The ivy panorama architecture of august monuments to erudite heritage is no substitute to the open air assembly held on the agora field in Athens.

Plato or Aristotle need not apply for a professorial position, much less expect to be given tenure.

The more money that government awards to the state university systems, the worse the outcome becomes. In the fifty plus years since the Berkeley Free Speech Movement ignited the student protest encounter, the moral underpinning of reasoned dissent has disappeared.

Race relations dwell in a rap culture of despair. Imperialism is fostered by perpetual war. Improved economics have been swept from expectations. Hope and optimism are “Gone with the Wind” as the future for the populace falls under the competing factions of totalitarian despotism that is preached as a center piece in the “PC” syllabus.

Western civilization from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment developed a respect for tolerance. While such respect for differing viewpoints has never been equally applied, the trend grew to defend the right of individuals to express and argue positions freely.

Departure from this standard has always produced foreboding consequences. The street gang mentality demonstrated on campuses today is a direct reflection of the abandonment of the traditions and heritage that educated generations of God fearing citizens, founded upon Judeo-Christian principles.

From Yale to Mizzou, the damage cuts across all class, race and economic backgrounds. Next, expect the book burning to be applied to the internet. The throngs of autocrats are not always the elites. The term, Sophomore is often described as an educated fool. In this case, very little knowledge has filtered into the brain cells of fanatical fascists.

SARTRE is the pen name of James Hall, a reformed, former political operative. This pundit’s formal instruction in History, Philosophy and Political Science served as training for activism, on the staff of several politicians and in many campaigns. A believer in authentic Public Service, independent business interests were pursued in the private sector. As a small business owner and entrepreneur, several successful ventures expanded opportunities for customers and employees. Speculation in markets, and international business investments, allowed for extensive travel and a world view for commerce. He is retired and lives with his wife in a rural community. “Populism” best describes the approach to SARTRE’s perspective on Politics. Realities, suggest that American Values can be restored with an appreciation of “Pragmatic Anarchism.” Reforms will require an Existential approach. “Ideas Move the World,” and SARTRE’S intent is to stir the conscience of those who desire to bring back a common sense, moral and traditional value culture for America. Not seeking fame nor fortune, SARTRE’s only goal is to ask the questions that few will dare … Having refused the invites of an academic career because of the hypocrisy of elite’s, the search for TRUTH is the challenge that is made to all readers. It starts within yourself and is achieved only with your sincere desire to face Reality. So who is SARTRE? He is really an ordinary man just like you, who invites you to join in on this journey.
