This is all a bit late.
In a rare example of forward planning, I had intended to end this series on the anniversary of the assassination of JFK. Which is rapidly approaching.
You can tell from all the poorly-written, worse-researched, mainstrean media articles dismissing 'conspiracy theories' in favour of an interpretation of physics that would prevent you from graduating from primary school.
It seems synchronmystically significant that the fiftieth anniversary of America’s most recent coup d’état coincides with the year of Snowden, the complete failure of the war-mongering lies of Syria, proof that Arafat was assassinated, and so on.
Oh, and the 40th anniversay of one of several other September 11ths. (Such as, creepily enough, the groundbreaking ceremony for the Pentagon, itself. Just let that 'sync in' for a moment.)
The most important anniversary of the year was the 40th anniversary of 11 September 1973 - the crushing of the democratic government of Chile by General Augusto Pinochet and Henry Kissinger, then US secretary of state. The National Security Archive in Washington has posted new documents that reveal much about Kissinger's role in an atrocity that cost thousands of lives.
In declassified tapes, Kissinger is heard planning with President Richard Nixon the overthrow of President Salvador Allende. They sound like Mafiosi thugs. Kissinger warns that the "model effect" of Allende's reformist democracy "can be insidious". He tells CIA director Richard Helms: "We will not let Chile go down the drain", to which Helms replies: "I am with you." With the slaughter under way, Kissinger dismisses a warning by his senior officials of the scale of the repression. Secretly, he tells Pinochet, "You did a great service to the West."
Understanding Kissinger's criminality is vital when trying to fathom what the US calls its "foreign policy". Kissinger remains an influential voice in Washington, admired and consulted by Barack Obama. When Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain commit crimes with US collusion and weapons, their impunity and Obama's hypocrisy are pure Kissinger. Syria must not have chemical weapons, but Israel can have them and use them. Iran must not have a nuclear programme, but Israel can have more nuclear weapons than Britain. This is known as "realism" or realpolitik by Anglo-American academics and think-tanks that claim expertise in "counter-terrorism" and "national security", which are Orwellian terms meaning the opposite.
The world is no longer getting used to it. In a continent ravaged by those whom Nixon called "our bastards", Latin American governments have defied the likes of Clarridge and implemented much of Allende's dream of social democracy - which was Kissinger's fear. Today, most of Latin America is independent of US foreign policy and free of its vigilantism. Poverty has been cut almost by half; children live beyond the age of five; the elderly learn to read and write. These remarkable advances are invariably reported in bad faith in the west and ignored by the "realists".
It's coming up on a year since it occurred to me, as it did to The Slayer, that we're gonna win. And I took some heat for that. Because it certainly didn’t look like it to a lot of people. It didn't help that I couldn't explain it, either.
Well, some days I feel like dropping the fucking mic and walking off stage.
This interlude allows us to go piece-by-piece through some archonological topics, because I appreciate that the world looks really fucking weird right now. Blurry, even, like it’s sliding past you too fast. Yeah. It is. It’s called gravity.
Let the personal observations begin!
Wellity, wellity, wellity. Like most bloggers, I have google alerts set up for my name/blog combination so I can quickly NSA whenever anyone mentions me. So, prior to this series, suggesting that the intelligence world can use your own cell phone as a recording device, even when it's switched off led to some... choice descriptions.
Then, of course, we had the largest intelligence leak in history, shedding light on the most dangerous, ungovernable, radicalised shadow world mankind has ever conceived of. One that admits to consistently lying about the so-called terrorist threat to beef up its own capacity. One that calls half the population it apparently protects 'terrorists'.
Related to the surveillance dragnet is the fact that the vast, military-created-in-the-first-place platform that it runs on is not only getting shitter... it is making the whole world shitter. That the great hope of the tech utopians of the nineties -among whom I numbered- had come to very little was a similarly unpopular position.
But it has come to very little. Child sexting platforms turn down $3 billion acquisition offers from NSA collaborators, despite never making a cent in revenue and employing a tiny handful of people. The investment money available in the developed world isn't going to underground mag trains, it's chasing exits for silly little products that will be abandoned in a few years once people over the age of thirty start using them.
Granted, this doesn't exactly look like 'winning' yet, but stay with me.
An atomising personal media landscape is impossible to ringfence. Whilst the US Senate is busily creating an 'official journalists' club -thus removing the last lingering distinction between a free American media and wartime propaganda- this will all come to nothing.
Consider the levels of belief expressed for the so-called 'reporting' on what was going on in Syria. Or the mental contortions required of
CIA mouthpieces newsreaders in order to explain that, yes, we're funding Al Qaeda but not like... you see, it's more.... oh look! Here's more propaganda about babies being killed. No bodies, though. It's just something we heard from Mossad.
The approval rate for military intervention in Syria was under 10%. All that war-drum beating that worked the last few times has so far come to nothing.
We are listening to them less and less on ephemeral platforms that are more and more difficult to ringfence. Yes, this presents challenges for the ongoing health of serious investigative journalism but:
- It's been missing in action for three decades, anyway.
- One archon at a time, yeah?
Curiously, the financial implications of PRISM have been little discussed. But what impact on the market could you have if you had full signal intelligence on the CEOs of the Fortune 500? Which the NSA has. And the spook world has a sixty year history of market manipulation, laundering, drug running and gold theft in order to fund its own runaway operations.
Do you suppose this has anything to do with German outrage or the BRICS nations' intent to build their own cleaner internet? That's going to make spying on allies at the behest of large corporations and black budget departments considerably more difficult. So expect some pushback.
Pushback like central banks rounding on Germany for having 'too high a growth rate'. Germany, who has excelled the world in capitalising on the Anglo-American spy programme being caught before anyone else's. Jack Sparrow's opportune moment, eh?
The 'opportune moment' thing is key. Germany has been after its gold "because of reasons" from the Fed for a couple of years now. Depending on who you ask, they were told either 'no' or 'seven years later'. (What kind of fairytale bullshit is this, leprechaun? Seven years? You better not repay in string or princesses or something.)
And now London property has become ‘the new global reserve currency’. A status that looks like it will retain for a while. The wealth of the global elite is sloshing around, looking for somewhere safe to land. They're literally running scared.
All of this indicates the ongoing evaporation for support of the US dollar as the safe, reserve currency of global exchange. Just look at all these countries that have or will soon have direct currency trading agreements:
- Germany - Russia: They also have a secretive energy supply deal that Merkel stitched up last year 'just in case'.
- Germany - China. Speaking of Merkel, last year, she took almost her entire cabinet with her to Beijing. That’s highly unusual behaviour for a head of state and indicates how seriously they take their partnership.
- Russia - China
- UK - China
- Brazil - China
- Brazil - Russia
- Brazil - Australia
- Australia - China
- China - Africa
You spotting a pattern here? You can see a splitting apart and re-plugging into the high growth parts of the world, circumventing the privately-owned printing machine at the heart of the Federal Reserve.
The break-up of the alliance
The European Parliament is pushing back in financial spying by the Five Eyes Countries. This is the thin end of the wedge when it comes to the law changes that will happen around the world in a post-Snowden era. And a dragnet filled with holes isn't very good at dragnetting.
There's Brazil and other South American countries building their own NSA-free internet. There's Merkel's bugged cellphone and the sudden freezing of free trade discussions, which are apparently 'unrelated'.
Speaking of Brazil, they also cancelled on Obama.
There's Saudi Arabia's 'petulant refusal' to join the UN security council.
Saudi Arabia’s petulant refusal to take its place among non-voting members of the Security Council, an unprecedented step by any UN member, was intended to express the dictatorial monarchy’s displeasure with Washington’s refusal to bomb Syria after the use of chemical weapons in Damascus – but it also represented Saudi fears that Barack Obama might respond to Iranian overtures for better relations with the West.
The Saudi head of intelligence, Prince Bandar bin Sultan – a true buddy of President George W Bush during his 22 years as ambassador in Washington – has now rattled his tin drum to warn the Americans that Saudi Arabia will make a “major shift” in its relations with the US, not just because of its failure to attack Syria but for its inability to produce a fair Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement.
What this “major shift” might be – save for the usual Saudi hot air about its independence from US foreign policy – was a secret that the prince kept to himself.
Israel, of course, never loses an opportunity to publicise – quite accurately – how closely many of its Middle East policies now coincide with those of the wealthy potentates of the Arab Gulf.
In fact, in an era of such strange bedfellows, it becomes increasingly difficult to suggest that policy is divided along sectarian or racial lines, and the Bush/NeoCon/Saudi/Likud faction is thrown sharply into view:
[M]ost of its attention has focused on Saudi unhappiness about any potential agreement between the United States and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear enrichment program. What the Saudis are really worried about is that any lessening of international tensions with Iran could have an impact on the internal stability of Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies.
It’s a worry shared by the Israelis, who appear to have lost their veto power over U.S. diplomacy with Iran. [More.]
How did those discussions with Iran happen? Part of it is that Iran is finally emerging from the totalitarian nightmare state it has suffered under since the CIA put them in it thirty years ago.
The other part of it is, of course, Russia and its refusal to let Brzezinski's plan come to fruition. The brinksmanship around Syria has been unprecedented. The world has changed. As reported by none other than academy award winner, Oliver Stone, Foreign Affairs -the mouthpiece of Rockefeller's Council on Foreign Relations- reported in 2007 that the US had achieved guaranteed First Strike capability vis-à-vis Russia in 2007.
So, war hawks being war hawks, it wasn't the risk of nuclear armageddon that stopped them. It was something far more worrisome.
Russia and China played the debt card:
I believe it is likely that financial intermediaries or lower level central banking contacts dropped the hint to their American counterparts that China and Russia were likely to begin liquidating Treasury obligations should Washington go ahead with it's planned military adventure against Syria.
This is best explained in Michael Snyder's September 6 article at The Economic Collapse, "Who Is Going To Buy Our Debt If This War Causes China, Russia And The Rest Of The World To Turn On Us?"
Putin wins again. He gets the credit for stopping the US; Russia, as usual, never fires a shot and Washington retreats. You'll know whether I'm right on Putin playing the debt card if on occasion, with very important questions on global affairs and diplomacy, America begins to slowly retreat – as do all empires when they overreach economically and begin to decline militarily.
I'm sure Putin also reads Sun Tzu and his ancient Chinese military treatise, The Art of War, so read the two quotes below and tell me what you think.
"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
"Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across."
As for further evidence, I'd say rolling out the central bankers in an attack on Germany's "dangerously high economic growth" that this final stage of the game of thrones is being played directly by the financial elite, rather than their
handpuppets diplomats. You also see it in China's response to the ludicrous sideshow that was the 'government shutdown': it might be time for a new global reserve.
'A slow retreat' you say? That article was written before the nascent Iranian-Anglosphere détente, where Obama was forced into a playdate with the country's new leader despite sulking from his Saudi and Israeli friends. And now the geopolitical wranglings of the spook world are 'poisoning' negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership... a western hemisphere corollary to the Trans Pacific Partnership which was described as a full frontal assault on democracy.
Monsanto failed to secure a European beachhead, so we shall watch the next stage of the TTIP unfold with interest and growing confidence.
Oh, and speaking of the Trans Pacific Partnership, that's also hitting some blocks as the most unpopular US Senate in history has decided to do its job for at least one day. This is a bigger deal than it looks, as it speaks to the declining power of democracy's corporate paymasters from 'total' to 'near-total'.
Gatekeepers are useless when there are holes in the wall
Politicians, media pundits... no one believes a word that comes out of their lie holes now. And we are seeing something similar with The Academy.
Here's the thing. I’m not really interested in arguing whether you can get good results or accurate information out of academia because the answer seems to be ‘only when it comes to deeply unimportant subjects like French literature or chaos magic.’
This is from the surprisingly good Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs.
I’m similarly uninterested in debating whether the super-elite really do think like this because I’m fairly sure I’ve had more exposure to them than you have. (That’s not an insult. It’s simply statistically likely given where in the world I work and what I do there.) The last couple of years have seen me be occasionally useful, like a part-time jester, to some very, very wealthy people. People who have never sent an email and genuinely cannot flip the switch on a kettle because they have been literally groomed from birth to believe that that is something Other People (you and me) Do For Them.
Call this Annunaki role play, but it is perhaps useful to speculate as to why a dozen or so global elite families would be simultaneously so interested in a more accurate story of our origin and so dedicated to concealing it. ie - Why did the Rockefeller family suppress research into the study of ancient human origins but also fund Sitchin and Esalen?
- Firstly, there may be a commercial advantage to the information which is only maintained if you gatekeep it. That much is obvious. But… what if you actually FOUND something? That flows on to point two:
- Remember, we are talking about people who consider it their burden/birthright to run the planet. There is a grim, interlocking narrative that works pretty well in selling us drugs and having us aspire to nothing more than safe factory jobs. Unpicking one piece of it; say, the existence of psi or the hundreds of anomalous pieces of evidence of giants and modern humans stretching back over a million years; tends to unpick the whole thing. Suddenly Darwinism (the not-so-subtle propaganda that you are just a lucky chimp and your overlords are the 'fittest' to rule) can be called into question. Unpicking the archonic narrative means the sudden and widespread realisation that you are an impossibly beautiful and rare diamond on Indra’s net, an eternal fragment of immortal consciousness, temporarily inhabiting a meatsuit possibly built offworld out of a vastly ancient technological blueprint, experiencing our holographic universe from the inside, divided for the chance of union. Kinda makes it difficult for an inbred banking family to declare their superiority and order you back to the factory floor, peasant. (It also provides a motive, as Chris Knowles points out, for why the Rockefeller family would be so interested in watering down what was once a promising New Age movement. You don’t even get six weeks into effective personal spiritual development without upturning the whole archon cart. That can't be good for productivity at the abbatoir.)
Ahh yes... DNA. It's probably best we don't look too closely at that, huh? You can find the most amazing things... if you have the money and the access.
This may all sound like bad news, but look... you're reading about it. In between creating multi-billion-dollar child sexting services and monitoring our every move, the internet has democratised access to information for those willing to look for it and not simply accept the opinion of a scared academic who makes half what you make.
Here's Craig Weiler's analysis of what this means for psi. I leave it to you to analyse what psi means for everything.
Because psi has been scientifically proven to exist beyond any reasonable doubt there is no point in getting into arguments with people who continually insist that it is not proven. To use an analogy, if we are going to explore what it means to live on a round world, it becomes pointless to have discussions about whether it is flat or not.
I think that it’s only a matter of time before the mass media will have to deal with this. An attitude of blanket skepticism will start eroding their reputations sooner rather than later. How much sooner is anyone’s guess. This is all brand new and the change that we are witnessing is unique in human history. The Internet is changing the way the sciences are dealt with and it’s having its impact in every controversial area. Parapsychology, the most mature of all the frontier sciences has had enough evidence since the 1950's. It’s fate of obscurity and misinformation was always a social one.
Consequently its promotion into the mainstream will come about only as a result of social change. And it’s happening now. I predict that the mainstream press will be the next place to start conceding that there is a scientific controversy and that they had better stop taking sides. Once the mainstream no longer toes the materialist line, the last bastion of the scientific reactionary: academia, will come under assault. They have been able to postpone this moment of reckoning for fifty years by simply avoiding the discussion, but that will be no longer possible once the mainstream media deserts them.
I spoke about this at the end of series 1 of The Whisky Rant. We have yet to see the full impact of the plurality of voices inside a global research world. Do you think India will have as much of an ideological problem revealing what its Mars robot finds as NASA does? I very much doubt it. We’re even seeing this sea change reach Scientific American.
Murder on the Dealey Plaza express
Tis the season, eh? Jim Marrs (who else?) makes the very good point that LBJ and Hoover are accessories after the fact, because it has been proven that they deliberately interfered with a murder investigation.
You can listen to the whole interview here. (Find it on iTunes.)
But as for finding the one culprit... be it the CIA or the FBI or the mafia or whatever? Like looking for a 'government conspiracy', you are digging in the wrong place. 'Kill the president' was not written up on a whiteboard in a Langley meeting room. You should instead look for a spectrum of post-Nazi, Operation Gladio psychopaths that are united by a worldview, not a workplace. Because they are found in the intelligence world, the criminal world, fringe churches, radicalised immigrants and so on.
Let's have another example. Earlier this week, I caught up with a friend who also works for a large media company that acquired her previous employer. (It's probably the one you're thinking of.) She's a jaded New Yorker which means she can go cocktail-for-cocktail with an overweight homosexual, so obviously we get on great. We've also worked together across four different companies in three countries for the last three years and, given that we chatted at length about her moving on, will no doubt add a fifth company to that.
Is that a conspiracy? Or is it a spectrum of shared objectives, unbound by paychecks and job titles?
Kennedy wasn't murdered because it suited the CIA's agenda. His death suited the war hawks, the CIA, the central banks, rogue elements inside NASA, the mafia, LBJ and Nixon, and so on. He was murdered because it suited the agenda of some people, some of whom may have been temporarily in the employ of The Company. It is an interlocking alliance of shared agendas.
Bu you know what? So are we! So is this. Welcome to the Mind War.
What happens next
Break out the blank badges:
As long as most citizens believe in the ideas that justify global capitalism, the private and state institutions that serve our corporate masters are unassailable. When these ideas are shattered, the institutions that buttress the ruling class deflate and collapse. The battle of ideas is percolating below the surface. It is a battle the corporate state is steadily losing. An increasing number of Americans are getting it. They know that we have been stripped of political power. They recognize that we have been shorn of our most basic and cherished civil liberties, and live under the gaze of the most intrusive security and surveillance apparatus in human history. Half the country lives in poverty. Many of the rest of us, if the corporate state is not overthrown, will join them. These truths are no longer hidden.
It appears that political ferment is dormant in the United States. This is incorrect. The ideas that sustain the corporate state are swiftly losing their efficacy across the political spectrum. The ideas that are rising to take their place, however, are inchoate. The right has retreated into Christian fascism and a celebration of the gun culture. The left, knocked off balance by decades of fierce state repression in the name of anti-communism, is struggling to rebuild and define itself. Popular revulsion for the ruling elite, however, is nearly universal. It is a question of which ideas will capture the public’s imagination. [More.]
The monolithic ice sheet is breaking into more manageable icebergs. You will still be cold, but at least you are getting somewhere.
