These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. ~~~ Thomas Paine, 1776

The Coup That Sank The American Ship (or has it? Updated below)

Like the British Empire before it, the banking/military/industrial juggernaut that is the US Hegemon is slowly sinking beneath the waves despite its frantic efforts to stay afloat. The attempted coup in Turkey this last week is just the latest fiasco for the hegemon. But before we do any finger pointing at the US, a little history will help with our understanding of what is at stake. Context is everything.

The wars that the central bankers of the US have waged and are still waging against Iraq, Libya and Syria are due to many reasons but one common reason is that these countries were selling their oil for currencies other than US dollars. War has been threatened against Iran for the same reason. The bankers are very sensitive about this issue because the issuance and subsequent use of US$ is the foundation on which all the power that the bankers have in and over the nations of the world is based. The declining use of US$ means a declining power base for the bankers.

The bankers have long held dreams of dominion over the world and they have planned to use their dollars together with the military might of the Pentagon to achieve it. But, alas, in spite of the wars waged on unco-operative countries, the use of US$ for trade is declining. Leading the charge to other currencies is Russia and China. Russia and China are gaining strength economically and militarily while the US has been slipping behind due to decades of corruption, together with the incompetence and hubris that goes along with systemic corruption.

The bankers only hope for survival is to isolate Russia and China from the rest of the world so as to take their currencies out of the competition. One of the reasons for the decline of the EU may be to take the Euro out of contention as a world trading currency as well.

To isolate Russia from Europe, it is necessary to cut Europe's dependence on Russian gas. That means the US must move heaven and earth to frustrate any plans for new gas pipelines to Europe from Russia. Enter Turkey into this struggle.

MKUltra in Australia

Below is an interview on Jan Irvin's Gnostic Media with Steve McMurray who has been researching the claims of ritual abuse and paedophilia in the political/legal/entertainment establishment in Australia by Fiona Barnett.

Steve was able to establish her claims as true through checking and validating that all the people, connections, times and places matched up with published articles from the time and various documents.

The cover-ups have been ubiquitous for decades and still continue with the latest being a $500m (yes, half a billion) Royal Commission into child sexual abuse by religious institutions and others.

The interview finishes with an explanation of Positive Psychology being foisted on schools now and how damaging it is if you are in any way interested in truth and reality. This Positive Psychology came out of the CIA's MKUltra program and the US military intelligence SERE torture program and shows how the ultimate target for this mind control research is the general population and it's here now.

The psychology has been developed by a former head of the American Psychological Association, Martin Seligman, with the help of Dr Antony Kidman. Antony Kidman is also one of the perpetrators identified by Fiona Barnett and happens to be the father of actress Nicole Kidman, star of Stanley Kubrick's film, Eyes Wide Shut - art imitating life. Antony Kidman suicided a month after being identified by Fiona Barnett.

The ritual abuse and paedophilia is the glue that holds together the upper echelons of this very sick system that controls our society.
It provides the basis for blackmail as Jan Irvin points out in the interview; it's what stops these psychopaths from stabbing each other in the back at the fist opportunity.

Dallas, Orwellando and the Paranoia Switch

(This is a repost of an article published here more than three years ago and originally titled "Limbic Warfare and The Paranoia Switch". That article was a reprint of an original article from The Signs Of The Times site by Harrison Koehli which was published back in 2007. It is just as topical and needed today.)

The following is an article reviewing Martha Stout's last book, The Paranoia Switch, at Sign Of The Times from a few years ago but still very topical and very enlightening. This excellent review is written by Harrison Koehli. He is an editor for Red Pill Press and the Dot Connector Magazine

The events of 9/11 traumatized the American public. The Bush administration exploited that fear and today the Obama administration continues to do so.

Martha Stout's newest book, The Paranoia Switch, is a welcome addition to the new and growing science of ponerology: the study of the root causes and genesis of evil, on both the social and interpersonal levels. Stout uses her years of experience as a trauma therapist to clinically diagnose the sickness of our 'terror culture,' and those who would manipulate this trauma for their own self-interest.

The paranoia switch

Traumatic events overload our limbic system. The heightened response of our amygdala, which registers the emotional significance of the event, leads to a decreased response in the hippocampus, which usually prioritizes information and allows the higher brain centers to create coherent memories, based on their emotional importance. So, traumatic events do not get integrated by the higher brain centers as true memories, but instead leave us with non-integrated fragments of memory: isolated images and sensations. These memories can then be "triggered" by similar images. In this way, a backfiring car can trigger a war vet into a state of paranoia. His "paranoia switch" has been flicked.

"Most overwhelming of all are traumatic experiences caused not by accident (unintended explosions or car crashes), or by "acts of God" (earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.), but rather by the deliberate acts of other people, acts such as assault, violent abduction, rape - or terrorism. It would seem that, for whatever reason, we are hardwired to be most fearful of harm when it threatens to occur maliciously, at the hands of our fellow human beings, and this special variety of fear is the most contagious of all."

Thoughts on Brexit, Bankers and The Russian Connection

The Brexit vote has taken up many columns of print and lots of space on online news services and on YouTube. Most pundits and commenters (including this writer) were caught off guard by the declared result of the vote to “Leave” the EU. In hindsight though, maybe we shouldn't have been when we consider the broader context in which the referendum was staged.

To start with, it is well to remember that it was none other than David Cameron that called the referendum. That is odd. Why would he (meaning his handlers) call for a vote on something that he apparently has nothing to gain from but something significant to lose? Psychopaths are not known for their commitment to democracy or the public welfare. They are instead known widely for their commitment to furthering their own power and that of their handlers. So, immediately, we can say there is something wrong with this Brexit picture.

To Laugh Or Cry: Reality Imitating Art

Below are two videos. The first is from Monty Python lampooning reality.

The second is from the European Parliament lampooning Europeans.

John Cleese is reported to have said a couple of years ago that Monty Python could not be done again today because reality has overtaken their art of ridicule. Or something to that effect!

After the banking corruption at the heart of the housing meltdown in the US in 2007 and the subsequent bank bail-outs that defied all reason in 2008/9, the following Monty Python sketch seems quaint

And now for a truly mind-numbing display of what democracy, as proscribed by bankers, means in the EU Parliament to which not even Monty Python could hold a candle to (H/T to Greencrow)

Getting Towed Around Through Our Emotions

The other day I came across an article that was published last month after the Brussels terror attack. The original was published in Russian on the Komsomolskay Pravda site. Below is the translated version featured on the Russia Insider site.

At first, the article appeared to me to be unremarkable enough then I saw two glaring problems that the article pointed to. Or, rather, the same problem manifesting in two different ways. It was unremarkable to begin with because of its familiarity. I seem to read articles like this every day. The problem is that of uncritical thinking; the inability to identify what is in front of one's nose. It is not limited to Russian citizens, either. It is wide-spread throughout the Western world.

Indeed, if people everywhere could think critically and were able to identify the reality that is in front of them all day, every day, then we would not find ourselves reading about wars from Africa to the Middle East to the Caucasus.

Below is the article in question and I have highlighted the statements that stood out for me and which I will write about at the foot of the article.

On the Day of the Brussels Bombing - as Maria Zakharova Saw It:
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman shares her frustration with western coverage of terrorism

Translated by Julia Rakhmetova and Rhod Mackenzie

This day, 22 March,  should have been different, not the one we all had. There should have been meetings, documents – a calm day, with time to get ready for a big ‘week of negotiations’.

We received the first news of the terror attacks in Belgium  at 10 a.m.. An hour and a half later we became aware of the scale of the tragedy.  Telephones “exploded”.

“Are there any Russians involved in the Brussels tragedy?” 

“How does Foreign Ministry evaluate what is happening in Brussels?” 

“Is there any plan to counteract the terrorist threat in Europe?”

“What’s next?” 

There were dozens of questions. I must have given ten interviews: Russia-24, Channel One, Dozhd, Ren-TV, Life-news, RSN, agencies, newspapers, online media… I don’t remember them all.

Someone asked: “Why did you work so hard?  It wasn’t us who suffered from the explosions!”
“What do you mean?” I asked startled. 

“I mean how long are you going to sympathize with ‘them’ since they don’t care about ‘us’ when we have terror attacks in our country. Usually they just make fun of us…Aren’t you fed up with that?”

I was shocked, and started to say publicly and with increasing emphasis: “We extend our sincere condolences… Words of encouragement to those…It’s our common tragedy… We need to join forces… It’s important to understand the root causes…” (indeed, ed)

Of course, it’s my job to answer questions from the media. But that’s not the point. It was hard for me to accept that people were beginning to sidestep the issue, but also, tired of the world ignoring our Russian tragedies and catastrophes. Waiting for my turn on air, I read various comments, some desperate: “They never sympathize with ‘US’, so why should we sympathize with ‘THEM”.
