There is bitter partisanship, increasingly Orwellian attempts to control the mainstream and social media narratives, the debauchery of “expertise” as dueling “experts” vie for control, the fraying of social discourse, the substitution of virtue-signaling for actual civic virtue, the institutionalization of white-collar crime (collusion, fraud, embezzlement, etc.), the increasing reliance on Bread and Circuses (stimulus, Universal Basic Income) as real opportunity dissipates, and the troubling rise in shootings, crime, random violence and plummeting social prosperity.
“This unraveling of social cohesion has consequences. Once social cohesion unravels, the nation unravels.“
This quote comes from a blog, “The Systemic Risk No One Sees, June 30, 2021, by Charles Hugh Smith. The solutions are not readily evident, yet one thing is for sure, each and every one of us needs to stand for the good of all in the face of forces that we have no control over. How each and every one of us chooses to do this is an infinite variance. Start with being here now and using your spending power to affect change. Be the change you want to see in the world. Money is the magic wand being used to harness society. As you well know, unless you are living under a rock, right now the rising money supply is inflating the price of everything. Protect yourself, your family and community. We are all in this together. Get ready for when the loss of spending power triggers a sell off of assets and major disruptions occur. It’s happened before and it is happening again.
May loving good vibrations rise to the global fore. I pray. Jubilee.
Our Mainstream News Media support the intelligence community, fools or magicians? They are mute on defending Assange or Snowden, two fools who should be revered magicians. Matt Tabbi sums up the press’ failure to speak for the public defense in this recent article: https://taibbi.substack.com/p/reporters-once-challenged-the-spy-a32 Tabbi points out that financial corporations are complicit in working with the press and the Global Intelligence community to expose any radical thinking activists. We are not talking terrorists, we are talking about whistleblowers here.
This week retired military officers have banned together in a letter to President Biden that insists he is endangering our Constitutional Republic. https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/05/12/joe-biden-military-revolt-liz-cheney/ These men are derided as extremists who are defying their mandate to submit to civilian authority. Yet, doesn’t their oath to the rule of law enshrined in the Constitution overrule all authority in the United States? In a right side up United States Assange and Snowden should be revered magicians who saved our freedoms.
The entire year of Covid mandates have over ruled all previous self-sovereignty precedents in our nation and have revealed very disturbing realities about the way our government is operating. https://off-guardian.org/2021/05/11/10-things-we-have-learned-during-the-covid-coup/ Not for the good of we the people so much as the good of the ruling corporate billionaire oligarchs is the M.O. of our government. Not new, but never so blatant before, maybe there just weren’t as many awake citizens last century, this century World War as a solution has failed to materialize. This doesn’t mean the same stakes aren’t on the table.
Trump was the “Fuck you” vote, Biden is the last of the globalist economic hitmen. Proof of Biden’s status is in the millions his son has reaped sitting on the made millionaire boards of countries our corporate oligarchs have co-opted. If you are not familiar with the M.O. of US Economic Hitmen start with John Perkin’s book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man Can we say that either of these men are standing for the good of all? Trump allowed the murder of Washington Post reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, at the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul to go unpunished without comment. So who are the good guys? Who are the magicians, who are the fools?
History has shown us that authoritarian “magicians” always become fools. Authoritarian globalists will lose, they will be unmasked. Let’s just hope it is sooner rather than later. Stay strong, stay free and keep searching for truth. It is out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWzrABouyeE
The Pentagon has stood by the Constitution of the United States. No to military against civilians who are assembling peacefully who also have few bad apples and violently vocal in the exercise of their free speech rights. General Kelly also uncharacteristically went public to say:
“There is a concern, I think an awful big concern, that the partisanship has gotten out of hand, the tribal thing has gotten out of hand…I think we should look at people that are running for office and put them through the filter: What is their character like? What are their ethics?”
Translation: neither Trump nor Joe Biden is fit to be the next president.
Word from Henry Kissinger about Putin is that he does not “think Putin is a character like Hitler,” Kissinger replies. “He comes out of Dostoyevsky.” Henry Kissinger: ‘We are in a very, very grave period’ If Kissinger is correct then Putin isn’t an enemy we, the people, of the United States would choose. At least not the “we the people” that are US citizens who align themselves with progressive ideals that have brought us decent working conditions, and education. According to the themes in Crime and Punishment, “Dostoyevsky was especially appalled by the idea that actions taken in pursuit of a better society were themselves necessarily good. He saw in this seemingly innocent theory a potential justification for violence. It was the same danger that Dostoyevsky recognized in the nihilists and anarchists, who by the 1870s and ’80s had indeed turned to terrorism to achieve their ends. Dstoyevsky’s novels are prophetic in regards to the assassination of Alexander II.” Kissinger is saying that he thinks Putin is a thinker that would have stood against violence as a solution to social ills. This is a startling insight when put in perspective against the current NATO vs BRICS global stand-off, as it can be safely assumed from Kissinger’s statement that the BRICS are as against terrorism as NATO claims to be.
So what is the United States fighting for? Rhetoric would have it that we are fighting Terrorists. Economically, many writers say that the US is fighting to maintain our current Military Industrially imposed US Dollar domination of the globe. The problem with this economic fight is that the military solution looks a lot like terrorism. The fight is sinking the very ideals that made the United States a “utopian ideal.” Instead what we have is dystopian writers saying that the US is going to fall and the entire globe is facing bleak and dark days ahead. Globalists who identify with the underdog BRIC nations right to thrive without being dominated by NATO are currently also waking up to the reality that harmony is going to be required if we want to maintain and sustain trade as we know it on this Globe. On this front, our current President Trump may be the hero of the hour. Working with Putin, opening up North Korea makes sense. Others would say Trump is taking us down a suicidal path with Russia as the Pied Piper. ” All we can hope for is that the rest of the world manages to come together and build at least the scaffolding of a functional imperial replacement in time to avoid collapsing into a new post-imperial dark age. ”
One thing is for sure, no matter who you think the bad guys are on this Earth, global life requires that all of our interconnected lives find a way to harmonize our greed, powers, resources and desires, good and bad, or we all lose.
For most of recorded history, the “Money Power” has been the deep state bogeyman in our moral and ethical standards of honor in government and society. Honor being “standing for the good of all in the face of forces that are out of our control.” Our last Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, coined the most recent level of covert/overt monetary manipulations to maintain the “money power a “moral hazard.” The public knows this moral hazard as bailouts; money created out of nothing to maintain/shore up the established parasitical practices of Bankers.
The money power, bankers, have been a parasite within humanity’s ethics code for centuries. Politically, the result of feeding the usurious in society has always ended in violent rejection of the “money powers” when the debt has grown too big to be able to pay. War has always been the answer.
This “deep state” wrong/ righted via war is not just political, but also religious: Jesus Christ throwing the “Moneychangers” out of the Temple is the only instance in the New Testament in which this Messiah who was to bring a sword is portrayed as driven to violent rage. Up until this point, the prophetic sword in the story of Jesus had been love and the need to treat all as equal sons and daughters of God the father. The target of Jesus’ violent rage was the Moneychangers’ (bankers) who’s usurious behavior, profiting on the exchange of money used at the temple drove Jesus to upturn their stalls. This hate/rejection of usury, and in turn the Hebrews, was part of the “Christian” religion for over 1000 years.
In the 1100s the Church bowing to political and economic pressure, likely to borrow money themselves, allowed for usury. The official justification for this change was in the interest of balancing the improvement to mankind’s standard of living via the practice of this “minor sin.” Purgatory was invented to cover the debts on the soul of the usurious. The stalemate of this “deep state” hold on power via usury has been an acknowledged state of existence that many have actually accepted as unavoidable and essential for the “good of all.” War being an unfortunate reality equally unavoidable.
Now, for the first time in recorded history this underlying double standard in the ethical reality of our economic/ social existence looks to become a mute point. Technology and China are moving us beyond the “usurious middle men,” the money power, the bankers, some like to call them the “banksters” are facing an end to their hold on humanity!
What is the United States to become under the rule of an American Businessman with seemingly no regard for anything but making money? War being the driving engine of the US money making machine. Veterans for Peace has won out on the “no parade” front for now, but for how long? See the Veterans’ news release
Thwarted in his War ambitions in Afghanistan, Trump’s frustration is eyeing Blackwater as an alternative to the national military. Officials worry.
Paying attention and using informed discernment has never been more important in U.S. history, if we, the people, do not want to get fooled again.
So much noise in our media distracts us from the reality that the current global debt-based monetary system based on fractional reserves valued on confidence is a house of cards teetering on lies. Historically, elites who run this confidence game have relied on war to cover the lies when the system topples. With war essentially funded by the same banks on both sides, the debt issuers remain in power to call the shots when it is time to rebuild after the death and destruction has cleared the unsustainable. People, shell shocked and emotionally confused, accept their leader’s lies and the confidence game can begin again.
With the historical destruction of every self-sustaining population on Earth not harnessed to the deb-based system, it can be said that today every human being on Earth is harnessed in one way or another to this gamed system. Only by refusing to engage in the distractions, only through a mass population focus on the truth of the monetary system that harnesses us to this horrific confidence game, can the game be changed. But first we must face the truth of the confidence game. As this article highlights, the lies are becoming more obvious, the light is shining in on the mass population’s awareness. http://www.oftwominds.com/blogjuly17/no-truth7-17.html There is hope. I think.
