Reality Is Immutable, But Can Be Very Well Disguised

As these turbulent days and weeks transpire it is hard to understand what is really going on and who really is playing the game. The amount of disinformation floating on the “net” is tsunami portions. Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? What is the truth and what is the reality we are currently experiencing? Tough questions really. Novelist Thomas Pynchon said it best: “If they can get you to ask the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about the answers.”

It is the “they” we must now accurately identify. We seem to understand “they” are the very elite of the world. “They” are those who wish to use their power to control the world and its economy. “They” are the ones that think they have a right to rule us all. Call them the elite, the cabalist, the illuminati, or any other of the dozen monikers we have ascribed to them, they do in fact exist; and they do in fact currently control the world’s economy. “They” are also a very small group.

To put things a bit in perspective, in the US, 10 people have a combined wealth that exceeds the combined wealth of the bottom 160 million Americans. Globally no more than 1700 people have a combined wealth that exceeds the combined wealth of over 5 BILLION global citizens! These are facts and represent part of the “truth”.

However, there is more to the story. “They” have been stealing the wealth of the labor of the rest of us for a long time, but recently their greed has reached obscene portions. Since the turn of the century, income inequality has reached levels never seen before in our history, worse than the Greek or Roman eras, worse than feudal Europe during and through the dark ages. Each time in history this income inequality has reached anywhere near what it is today, revolution has occurred. “They” know this and it is what keeps them up at night.

As “They” gathered in Davos this past week it was quite evident “they” were getting very concerned, judging by the various forums and talks that took place. It is common knowledge and conventional wisdom among the Elite, that everyone should have a “bug-out” plan and a place to hide as all hell is going to break loose soon.

words-of-wisdom-25

However, so far, with the exception of a few out breaks like Ferguson, Greece, and Iceland, for example, we, the sheeple, are all still be herded right along to our economic demise. How is this possible? One word, DISINFORMATION. Either we don’t the truth of what is going on, or as most of us awake realize, we are being fed disinformation that our victory is near. Is it?

We are told a new dawn is here and there are “ascended masters” and benign off worlders who are orchestrating our rescue from these despots. Really? What prove really exists for these contentions. I am not saying that those who are promoting these ideas are bad guys, not in the least. What I am saying is they may just be dupes being fed disinformation to keep those who are awake from taking the actions that need to be taken. Is it not OUR planet? Is it not our futures and our children’s futures at stake here? Is it not OUR responsibility to act in our own interest?

Our reality is our responsibility to create. I, for one, certainly appreciate any help we can get, but I also have the sense that we are being played big time in areas of finance, governance, and education. For example, are the BRICS the antithesis to the NWO or just the NWO in a different dress? Think about it?

We are sovereign, we are eternal by nature, we are one with the Creator, and we are all one with each other. Isn’t it time we accept reality and take the responsibility that is associated with reality and clean this mess up? I hold no anger for the “elite”. Boys will be boys and they will expectedly continue in the manner that has rewarded them so well. But reality is demanding a “Time-Out”. Let’s get this party started. Think for yourself. Accept nothing as truth that YOU personally cannot confirm. Then Stand-up, Speak UP and Act UP! Enough!

Throwing Off the Yoke

In our previous articles we endeavored to help everyone with a clear picture of what “awakening” entailed and the simple steps it takes to expand awareness and begin to understand our true nature and the true nature of the universe. In each step we also tried to show that everything we were discussing was apparent and actually backed by scientific proof.

However, once awake, there are some obvious and interesting questions that become apparent. These questions concern our lack of progressive evolution and the fact there seems to be very dark forces in control of our planet right now. So is this true, and if so, why do these dark forces have control of governments, the economic system, and our lives? Why do we face endless wars, crippling poverty, devastating hunger, and lack of economic progress in the face of exceptional technology and capabilities?

It seems that Human beings are on a journey of awareness, which has momentarily been interrupted by extraneous forces. Could it be that from a very early time that there are forces at work that are hell bent on enslaving us? If we look to ancient scriptures we can get a sense that this might be true. The story of Adam and Eve in Genesis suggests that “something” did make it presence known and in fact corrupted “new man”. There also stories in other ancient writings naming these forces by a number of names. The Annunaki, JIns, Shadow Beings are just a few of the referred “evil spirits” that seem to have been interfering in the natural course of human evolution.

It seems this force is a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routine oriented, and egomaniacal.

These alien predators are called Archons, Arkontai in Greek. The texts from Nag Hammadi describe them as heavy, elusive, shadowy creatures. The Archons have chosen that name on purpose. They take symbols that are positive and try to associate them with something negative in the minds of human beings. ISIS is a recent example of this technique of control. Now, this name is all over the mass media. If somebody from the street reads about Isis – in human mind their image of fanatics killing people is formed instead of associating Isis as a Goddess of light. This is how association of the mind works.

the archons

They have done the same thing many times in the past. The Nazi’s have taken a very old symbol of the swastika – which means spiritual evolution, and turned it around into a symbol of evil. Same thing happened to pentagram and some other symbols in the past. This is why the illuminati are using for example, the All Seeing Eye, they have hijacked the symbol. It’s a symbol of the source and they have hijacked it and it represents an all seeing eye of the one world order. This is how the Archons work. Whenever people see to see symbols they associate it with something negative. And so the positive energy of the symbol can’t flow through. It’s an occult war that is taking place. It’s a control for the attention of people. This is one reason in our previous articles, we emphasized that each of us should everyday ask ourselves the question of “who am I and why does anyone have control over me?” This is probably the most important question one could ask.

Doing so begins to bring a level of awareness of just how much we are being manipulated and have a psychological war waged on our consciousness. We are all aware that this fact, but why, do you wonder, we can’t seem to shake its effectiveness?

01-NO ARCHONS

If there is an archonic force working against our evolution, then these subtle forces are most assuredly eliminated as we become more aware of who we really are. Indeed, recent evidence suggests that as more and more people begin to wake up and expand their consciousness the world is beginning to improve. For example, we are less afraid and less likely to react to calls of war and terror. These arguments seem to be getting old and stale and we are not falling for them as easily as we have in the past.

This is about personal freedom and opportunity. What we have presented here is for your consideration. We all have a ‘sense” of this, but it is difficult to articulate, which just maybe a sign of the subtle nature of this reality. If we awaken and claim our sovereign divine rights as spiritual beings, the Archon game is over. Just something for you to contemplate.

The Week of September 25th…What is going on?

I have written several articles chronicling how markets and banks, politicians and PTB have been moving and acting in the world.  Recently, I warned that as the markets, and now even countries, are on the verge of collapse, that Red Flag Operations may be resorted to by the PTB.

A Red Flag Operation is an act or set of events that are orchestrated by the PTB to re-focus US to their desired focus point and NOT have our attention focused on what is really going on.  I am not a conspiracist, but must admit I have always had many questions about the assassination of JFK and MLK. I think a lot of sensible people would admit the same.

I think we all now know how Ole GW got us into Iraq and consequently Afghanistan under the guise of WMDs.  I would also venture to say that we all know instinctively that the good ole boys on Wall Street criminally raped us blind and continue to do so.

But all of these past events pale given what may be potentially unfolding.  There is a flurry of disinformation out there and most of it is focused on Comet Elenin, Planet X, End of Days, etc.  However, I believe, as I have warned my readers, “don’t believe your lying eyes.”

What I believe is more important are these facts:

The insiders have vanished.  Chief executives, board members, and the head honchos gone, everywhere. These are the people who know.  Just a few weeks ago, they were out in force, buying up shares in their own companies with both hands.  No longer is that happening. They’ve disappeared, almost overnight.

“They’ve stopped buying,” says Charles Biderman, the chief executive of stock market research firm TrimTabs, which tracks the data. “Insiders aren’t buying this rally.” Insider stock purchases, which surged above $100 million a day in the market slump last month, have now collapsed to just $13 million a day.

Specifically I am talking about CEOS and Execs from these companies for example:

Sun Microsystems          Royal Bank of Scotland                 Bank Leumi of Israel
Lenovo                                Wellpoint                                            Ingersoll-Rand
Gasco                                   Syntel                                                   Motion Picture Television Fund
AgResearch                       Zain Telecom                                    Ethan Allen Institute
Uranium International Corp                                                     Argentina Central Bank
Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing (CFO)

These are but a selection of over 200 “players” Biderman was referring to in his quote.  I selected these particular ones, not necessarily because they were the biggest, but they represent the universal nature of this sudden move.  The pervasiveness of who acted and how they all suddenly acted in the very same way is very strange and really cannot be explained as “normal market behavior.”

Even if there was insider information that a large market adjustment was coming, there would not be this universal and coordinated response.  However, rumors of a world-wide conflict “could” trigger just this response.  Historically, just prior to WWII and even Korea, similar financial moves were made.

It is true that during the week of September 25, Elenin will make its closest approach to earth. However, here is where it gets a bit interesting and beyond coincidence, President Obama leaves DC during this week to Denver.  FEMA and 101 Colorado agencies will have a major disaster drill in Denver on that week.  The US military will conduct Operation Cocked Pistol, a DEFCON1 exercise on 27 September in Denver!   Many NASA staff will arrive that week in Denver.  The CIA has announced moving 10,000 people to their new Denver offices.  There are multiple military trains loaded with tanks, personnel carriers, fuel trucks, etc., moving towards Denver as we speak.

The Senate and House of Reps will be out of DC during this week. They always take the month of August. This is the first time they are recessing again the next month.  The British Parlament leaves for recess for this week.   The main British royalty are nowhere to be found on these dates, no scheduled events.
The UN will be off during these dates.  The Russian Duma will be in recess during this week.  The pope will be off during this week.

These various events may be just one giant coincidence, but whew!  Those are a lot of facts coming together in a very strange way.  It seems everyone is getting the Hell outta of Dodge!

And let us not forget the bizarre cryptic words of President Obama during the 911 speech.
“Psalm 46 – 1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed,
and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.”

I will let you all be the judge of this information, but at the risk of sounding like a fool, I think we should look at this closely.  In war there is one fact I know from personal experience, those with the least amount of knowledge are the first causalities of conflict.

 

Please Rise: The Securocrats have found you guilty of PRECRIME

Big brother is not coming.  Big brother is already here and any rights you thought you may have had are gone.  Dust in the wind.  We only need to look at how the War on Terrorism has morphed into the war on “domestic terror”.  All rights under the constitution have been rescinded.  I don’t know about you, but I never remember voting on that?  Do you?  But consider the following information compiled by  Antifascist Calling – Tom Burghardt.

Not since AT&T whistleblower Marc Klein’s 2006 revelations that U.S. telecommunications giants were secretly collaborating with the government to spy on Americans, has a story driven home the point that we are confronted by a daunting set of invisible enemies: the security and intelligence firms constellating the dark skies of the National Security State.

As echoes from last month’s disclosures by the cyber-guerrilla collective Anonymous continue to reverberate, leaked HBGary emails and documents are providing tantalizing insight into just how little daylight there is between private companies and the government. The latest front in the ongoing war against civil liberties and privacy rights is the Pentagon’s interest in “persona management software.” A euphemism for a suite of high-tech tools that equip an operative–military or corporate, take your pick–with multiple avatars or sock puppets, our latter day shadow warriors hope to achieve a leg up on their opponents in the “war of ideas” through stealthy propaganda campaigns rebranded as “information operations.”

A Pervasive Surveillance State

The signs of a pervasive surveillance state are all around us. From the “persistent cookies” that track our every move across the internet to indexing dissidents already preemptively detained in public and private data bases: threats to our freedom to speak out without harassment, or worse, have never been greater. As constitutional scholar Jack Balkin warned, the transformation of what was once a democratic republic based on the rule of law into a “National Surveillance State,” feature “huge investments in electronic surveillance and various end runs around traditional Bill of Rights protections and expectations about procedure.”

“These end runs,” Balkin wrote, “included public private cooperation in surveillance and exchange of information, expansion of the state secrets doctrine, expansion of administrative warrants and national security letters, a system of preventive detention, expanded use of military prisons, extraordinary rendition to other countries, and aggressive interrogation techniques outside of those countenanced by the traditional laws of war.”

Continuing the civil liberties’ onslaught, The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Barack Obama’s “change” regime has issued new rules that “allow investigators to hold domestic-terror suspects longer than others without giving them a Miranda warning, significantly expanding exceptions to the instructions that have governed the handling of criminal suspects for more than four decades.”  The Journal points out that the administrative “revision” of long-standing rules and case law “marks another step back from [Obama’s] pre-election criticism of unorthodox counterterror methods.”

Also last week, The Raw Story revealed that the FBI has plans to “embark on a $1 billion biometrics project and construct an advanced biometrics facility to be shared with the Pentagon.” The Bureau’s new biometrics center, part of which is already operating in Clarksburg, West Virginia, “will be based on a system constructed by defense contractor Lockheed Martin.” “Starting with fingerprints,” The Raw Story disclosed, the center will function as “a global law enforcement database for the sharing of those biometric images.” Once ramped-up “the system is slated to expand outward, eventually encompassing facial mapping and other advanced forms of computer-aided identification.”

The transformation of the FBI into a political Department of Precrime is underscored by moves to gift state and local police agencies with electronic fingerprint scanners. Local cops would be “empowered to capture prints from any suspect, even if they haven’t been arrested or convicted of a crime.” “In such a context,” Stephen Graham cautions in Cities Under Siege, “Western security and military doctrine is being rapidly imagined in ways that dramatically blur the juridical and operational separation between policing, intelligence and the military; distinctions between war and peace; and those between local, national and global operations.”

“Last October,” Secrecy News reported, “the DNI revealed that the FY2010 budget for the National Intelligence Program (NIP) was $53.1 billion. And the Secretary of Defense revealed that the FY2010 budget for the Military Intelligence Program (MIP) was $27.0 billion, the first time the MIP budget had been disclosed, for an aggregate total intelligence budget of $80.1 billion for FY 2010.” This excludes of course, the CIA and Pentagon’s black budget that hides a welter of top secret and above Special Access Programs under a dizzying array of code names and acronyms. In February, Wired disclosed that the black budget “appears to be about $56 billion, the same as last year,” but this “may only be the tip of an iceberg of secret funds.”

“Operation MetalGear”
While media have focused, rightly so, on the sleazy campaign proposed to Bank of America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce by the high-powered law firm and lobby shop Hunton & Williams (H&W) to bring down WikiLeaks and tar Chamber critics, the treasure trove of emails leaked by Anonymous also revealed a host of Pentagon programs pointed directly at the heart of our freedom to communicate. In proposals sent to H&W, a firm recommended to Bank of America by a Justice Department insider, “Team Themis said they would ‘leverage their extensive knowledge of Palantir’s development and data integration environments’ allowing all of the data collected to be ‘seamlessly integrated into the Palantir analysis framework to enhance link and artifact analysis’.”

Following the sting of HBGary Federal and parent company HBGary, Anonymous disclosed on-going interest and contract bids between those firms, Booz Allen Hamilton and the U.S. Air Force to develop software that will allow cyber-warriors to create fake personas that help “manage” Pentagon interventions into social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and blogs. Dubbed “Operation MetalGear”, Anonymous believes that the program “involves an army of fake cyber personalities immersed in social networking websites for the purposes of manipulating the mass population via influence, crawling information from major online communities (such as Facebook), and identifying anonymous personalities via correlating stored information from multiple sources to establish connections between separate online accounts, using this information to arrest dissidents and activists who work anonymously.”

According to a solicitation (RTB220610) found on the FedBizOpps.Gov web site, under the Orwellian tag “Freedom of Information Act Support,” the Air Force is seeking software that “will allow 10 personas per user, replete with background, history, supporting details, and cyber presences that are technically, culturally and geographically consistent.” Creepily, “personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world and can interact through conventional online services and social media platforms. The service includes a user friendly application environment to maximize the user’s situational awareness by displaying real-time local information.” Aiming for maximum opacity, the RFI demands that the licence “protects the identity of government agencies and enterprise organizations.” An “enterprise organization” is a euphemism for a private contractor hired by the government to do its dirty work.

Corporate Cut-Outs

Following up on last month’s revelations, The Guardian disclosed that a “Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an ‘online persona management service’ that will allow one US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based all over the world.” That firm, a shadowy Los Angeles-based outfit called Ntrepid is devoid of information on its corporate web site although a company profile avers that the firm “provides national security and law enforcement customers with software, hardware, and managed services for cyber operations, analytics, linguistics, and tagging & tracking.”

According to Guardian reporters Nick Fielding and Ian Cobain, Ntrepid was awarded a $2.76M contract by CENTCOM, which refused to disclose “whether the multiple persona project is already in operation or discuss any related contracts.” Blurring corporate lines of accountability even further, The Tech Herald revealed that Ntrepid may be nothing more than a “ghost corporation,” a cut-out wholly owned and operated by Cubic Corporation.  A San Diego-based firm describing itself as “a global leader in defense and transportation systems and services” that “is emerging as an international supplier of smart cards and RFID solutions,” Cubic clocks in at No. 75 on Washington Technology’s list of 2010 Top Government Contractors.

With some $1 billion in 2009 revenue largely derived from the Defense Department, the company’s “Cyber Solutions” division “provides specialized cyber security products and solutions for defense, intelligence and homeland security customers.” The RFI for the Air Force disclosed by Anonymous Ragan reports, “was written for Anonymizer, a company acquired in 2008 by intelligence contractor Abraxas Corporation. The reasoning is that they had existing persona management software and abilities.” In turn, Abraxas was purchased by Cubic in 2010 for $124 million, an acquisition which Washington Technology described as one of the “best intelligence-related” deals of the year.

Amongst the Security Services offered by the firm we learn that “Cubic subsidiaries are working individually and in concert to develop a wide range of security solutions” that include: “C4ISR data links for homeland security intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions;” a Cubic Virtual Analysis Center which promises to deliver “superior situational awareness to decision makers in government, industry and nonprofit organizations,” human behavior pattern analysis, and other areas lusted after by securocrats. While CENTCOM’s then-commander, General David Petraeus told the Senate Armed Services Committee last year that the program was designed to “counter extremist ideology and propaganda,” in light of HBGary revelations, one must ask whether firms involved in the dirty tricks campaign against WikiLeaks have deployed versions of “persona management software” against domestic opponents.

We have been following these activities for a few years now and what amazes me is that we seem to accept this as a reality.  We come to believe that these are necessary trades for security.  Really?  How much more are you willing to accept?  Euthanasia for the good of the country maybe?

Seems Like Too Much Fear and Anxiety

I am reminded in these times of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s first inaugural address in which he uttered those famous words; “let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”

In today’s noisy background with terrorists, natural disasters, two wars being prosecuted, swine flu, bird flu, global warming, corrupt politicians, and financial gangsters, I try to find a place of quiet to reflect on just what the hell is going on, really!  I also remember “Deep Throat’s” advice, follow the money.

In fact, I make it a daily habit and have reported my findings extensively in my blog. What I know is that since 2007, someone has picked our personal pockets for about $11 Trillion dollars, robbed our national collective treasuries, because I include the EU primarily in the mess, although the GCC states got popped also, for about $20 Trillion collectively.  Add on top of that the cost of the wars and well you see very quickly that all of these events did not just show up on the timeline spontaneously.

It appears that some amount of planning and cooperation has gone into the unfolding of these events.  There are literally hundreds of conspiracy theories, but that is not the focus of my thoughts just now.  My thoughts are centered on how did we let this happen?  I mean collectively we, as Americans and Europeans, sit docile as we are being raped.  Why?

I think the answer comes down to two words, fear and apathy.  Ok, I know I am not saying anything that profound.  However, if you consider that there might be a possibility that those responses were being socially engineered to occur, then that might be another story, wouldn’t it?

I am bringing this all up now because if I am correct in my little theory, then we are collectively about to see the grand finale between now and next spring.  It is just a necessary timing thing.  That means there will be a need to ratchet up the feelings of fear and insecurity.

Some possible coming attractions are:

All out currency war with the yen, dollar, and Euro seeing significant devaluations. Hyperinflation is coming to a country near you.

Red flag minor terrorist attacks in a city near you.

Watch out for inbound asteroids!

Another Trillion plus bailout of the banks will be coming just after the elections.

Official disclosure that there are indeed aliens, lots of them, and they are all not necessarily friendly, so fear all of them, presented in new holographic technology.

Look, I am not a conspiracy nut.  There is just too much disinformation out there to really know anything significantly important.  I am however a lover of patterns.  I have liked patterns ever since my grandfather, whose was a master Indian weaver, taught me the “secret” of the pattern.  Simply stated, if you pay attention closely to the pattern, you will soon see and know what comes next.

The real point is though, that if the pattern exists, then there is a necessity to elevate the sense of helplessness to secure the “final objective”.  This however is predicated on our “conditioned” response to the “events” as they are unfolded.  In this state of anxiety and fear we tend to readily give up our personal freedoms and rights to be “protected”.  What happens if we do not buy it? What if we collectively take FDR’s advice?  Just a thought.  It is late and I have had a lot of coffee.

Here Comes the Currency Wars! Is It What Kicks Off the Final Crash?

Regardless of all of the happy talk, I have continued to insist that firstly, this is the second great depression.  It is definitely global and extended. Secondly, we haven’t seen the bottom yet and I believe we will be dealing with this economic crisis for at least another 5-10 years.  I have contended that the real numbers and facts that count have NOT improved and to say the recovery has begun and more outrageous to say that it started in June of last year is mind-boggling.

There is no more vulnerable area to precipitating the “second leg” down than a global currency war.  The impacts of such wars are never anything good for struggling economies.  It seems that is exactly what is beginning to happen.  Consider this from Peter Simpson in Beijing for VOAnews.com

http://www.voanews.com/english/news/China-Warns-US-Yuan-Bill-Could-Damage-Ties-104071274.html

China Thursday expressed its anger at legislation in the United States aimed at punishing Beijing for not letting its currency rise in value and failing to address trade imbalances.  Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu says the United States should avoid steps that could damage relations. She says her government opposes what she says is Congress using the currency issue to launch protectionist measures against China.

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation that would allow Washington to treat what the bill describes as fundamentally undervalued currencies as an illegal export subsidy.  Jiang says the bill would harm commercial relations between China and the U.S., and says it could affect the economies of both countries, and the world.

The bill is primarily aimed at China. The U.S. and other countries say it keeps its currency, the yuan, artificially low to give its exports an unfair advantage. Many U.S. politicians, businesses and labor groups say this has contributed to the United States’ massive trade deficit with China. Congress says the deficit causes jobs losses in the U.S.  The bill would allow the U.S. to set tariffs to offset China’s price advantages.

It must be passed by the Senate and signed by President Barack Obama to become law, and neither is certain. But the latest move has rattled China.  State media quoted the Commerce Ministry as saying the bill contravenes World Trade Organization rules.  Jiang, the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, would not say if Beijing will seek to retaliate.  But Beijing is not alone in its opposition to the bill.


The American Chamber of Commerce in China on Thursday said the bill would not achieve its objectives and would not create significant U.S. job growth.  Chairman John Watkins Jr. says the group opposes the bill because it will make the trade deficit worse, and will likely shift some China production to other low-cost countries.

“We believe that it will actually reduce exports and thereby good jobs,” Watkins says. “I think it will add further tension to the U.S.-China relationship. We think that Congress would be better focused and better advised coming up with a response to deal with China’s web of indigenous innovation policies, weak intellectual property protection, and tightening market access for foreign firms here.”  Any vote on the bill in the U.S. Senate will not come until after congressional elections on November 2.

If this was the only issue, it may be manageable, but the focus is just not on the US and China, although these countries are 1 and 2 respectfully economically.  There is a great concern on how the EU is going to manage its joint austerity programs.

Russian President Dmitri Medvedev has urged the European Union to stabilize its common currency, saying a stable euro is important for EU trade partners, including Russia. Mr. Medvedev told reporters in Germany Saturday that Russia is not indifferent to the fate of the European single currency, because it keeps part of its foreign currency reserves in euros.

The Russian president arrived in Germany Friday to discuss global and bilateral issues with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.   After speaking with the German leader, Mr. Medvedev expressed confidence that a package of EU measures put in place to help stabilize the euro will work.  Later this month, leaders from top 20 economies will meet in Canada to discuss ways of stabilizing the world economy and financial system.

This comes at the same time as we are seeing the working classes of the EU countries most affected take to the streets en masse.  Workers across Europe took part in coordinated actions to protest government austerity measures, shutting down much transport in Spain and filling the streets of Brussels with tens of thousands of marchers.

Spain’s first general strike in eight years left few buses running in Madrid and about half of underground trains out of service, Reuters said. The government said an agreement with unions guaranteed minimum service. Sky News reported that Iberia, Spain’s largest airline, expected only a third of its scheduled flights to take place.  Unions claimed that more than half of the Spanish work force, or about 10 million people, were on strike, Reuters reported, though the government downplayed any problems.  “So far the strike is taking place with normality and without incidents,” said Celestino Corbacho, the Spanish labor minister, The New York Times reported. “Citizens are fulfilling both their right to strike and work.”

The day of labor action across Europe was led by the European Trade Union Confederation. The group represents trade unions from 36 European countries and claims 60 million members, CNN reported.  “Cutting in a recession is crazy, and we must fight it,” John Monks, European Trade Union Confederation’s general secretary, told CNN.  In Brussels, union organizers said they had achieved their goal of drawing 100,000 people to march on European Union buildings, The Associated Press reported. Union workers are rallying against higher taxes, a delayed retirement age and longer work day, the Times said.

In Greece, which has been trying to fight off bankruptcy, some transportation workers had walked off the job, national rail workers were stopping work later, and hospital doctors were on strike for 24 hours, AP reported.


Irish police arrested a 41-year-old man after he drove a cement-mixer emblazoned with the words “toxic bank” to the gates of the Irish parliament in Dublin, which is due to authorize billions of dollars of further funding to bolster Anglo Irish Bank, which was nationalized last year. Authorities took more than two hours to remove the truck, according to the Irish Times, because the protester had taken measures to immobilize it.  CNN said protests are also planned in Portugal, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Serbia, Romania, Poland, Ireland and France.

Although the UK seems aloof from the EU, it cannot escape the reality of mandatory “austerity” measures, but like the US the new government seems reluctant to tell the public the truth of the nature and depth of the austerity programs.  The point of all of this is that we are not immune from these wars and in fact we are already engaged fully in the “prosecution” of this war.  I, for one, am very concerned that these tensions will build and the resultant tariff wars that will be imposed because of a lack of response from country X or Y to valuation demands will set off hyperinflation and more unemployment globally.  This may well be the biggest story of the year and few media outlets are putting in front of us.  Hmmmmmmmmm.

Livable Communities Act of 2009 (SB1619) Diabolic Social Engineering or Not?

Here is a summary of the bill – Establishes in the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) an Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities (OSHC). Establishes in the executive branch an independent Interagency Council on Sustainable Communities. Requires the OSHC Director to establish a program to make comprehensive planning grants and sustainability challenge grants to eligible entities (partnerships between a consortium of units of general local government and an eligible partner, which may be a metropolitan planning organization, a rural planning organization, a regional council, or a state). Requires the use of a comprehensive planning grant to carry out a project to: (1) coordinate land use, housing, transportation, and infrastructure planning processes across jurisdictions and agencies; (2) identify potential regional partnerships for developing and implementing a comprehensive regional plan; (3) conduct or update housing, infrastructure, transportation, energy, and environmental assessments to determine regional needs and promote sustainable development; (4) develop or update a comprehensive regional plan or goals and strategies to implement an existing comprehensive regional plan; and (5) implement local zoning and other code changes necessary to implement a comprehensive regional plan and promote sustainable development.

Requires the use of a sustainability challenge grant to: (1) promote integrated transportation, housing, energy, and economic development activities carried out across policy and governmental jurisdictions; (2) promote sustainable and location-efficient development; and (3) implement projects identified in a comprehensive regional plan. Directs the OSHC Director to study and report to specified congressional committees on incentives for encouraging lenders to make, and homebuyers and homeowners to participate in, energy-efficient mortgages and location-efficient mortgages.

There are a number of organizations and PACS that are very concerned about the intent of this bill.  They contend it is a social engineering bill to restrict residence in the suburbs and rural areas and force Americans into city centers. They are very concerned that the bill has passed the United States Senate Banking Committee and is on the fast track to passage in the Senate.

The bill is called the Livable Communities Act (SB 1619) and it was introduced by outgoing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). According to its opponents the bill seeks to fulfill the United Nation’s plan Agenda 21, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush.

Senator Dodd

Ron Paul released this statement on  September 16th:  “This bill, better called the Dodd Homeowner Control Act, was snuck through committee on August 3rd, and a final Senate vote could come as early as next week!  Nancy Pelosi has the votes to pass it in the House, and Barack Obama is sure to sign it.

I don’t know about you, but I have no interest in participating with Chris Dodd, Barack Obama, and their radical environmentalist friends in their version of Extreme Home Makeover.  The Dodd Bill, in the spirit of the U.N.’s “Agenda 21,” focuses on “sustainable development” and “comprehensive regional plans.”

These are code words for government determining not only how you live in your own home, but deciding what your neighborhood looks like by using your tax dollars to bribe state and local governments into forcing your community to fit federal guidelines.

There is not a minute to lose. A Senate filibuster is the only chance to stop this U.N. power grab.

Under the guise of “sustainability” the Dodd Homeowner Control Act will create a massive new Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities, likely to be under the control of a “Development Czar.”  Such a Czar would be tasked with imposing federal standards on energy, zoning, and housing that line up with the U.N.’s radical environmental agenda. State and local laws and zoning would be wiped out.

It’s vital that sign the petition to your Senators demanding they oppose the Dodd Homeowner Control Act (aka Dodd’s Livable Communities Act, S. 1619)…..

Indeed Section 13 of the proposed bill does seem to give a broad jurisdiction to regional planning boards and contains the code words for such things as high density housing, etc.  Given the state of the economy and the performance of local planning agencies, I get a little queasy on this one.  In general, I don’t have any problems with looking at local situations and deciding what is best for the community and the environment.  The problem seems to be that extreme activists seem to populate the local boards and things get a bit absurd and in a lot cases infringes significantly on individual property rights and more specifically, the owner’s right to appreciate his property in the way that seems reasonable to the owner.

To extend the powers of local planning commissions to a regional level is at the least worrisome to me.  If you are a property owner or a local developer, I think you should really take a look at this bill and weigh in on this one.  After it passes, it may just be too late to do anything that would be pre-emptive in nature.

The Final Assault on Personal and Sovereign Wealth Has Begun

I have chronicled how our financial systems and our sovereign wealth funds are be attacked and pillaged by the PTB.  I have referred to Credit Derivatives and Repos as weapons of mass destruction, and indeed as we see now surfacing from the Goldman Sachs hearings just how devastating these weapons have been in bringing down the economy.  Goldman alone made over $4 Trillion in the last five years.

But now, with governments on their knees on both sides of the Atlantic, the final assault has begun.  There will be some who say I am an alarmist.  I am naive and in my ignorance I just don’t understand the complexities of world finance. Really?  I don’t think so.

One only has to watch from a longer perspective like I have since the assault began on Argentina in 2002.  This has been well planned, methodical, and extremely effective in results.  One fact should be kept in clear perspective.  165 of the world’s central banks are privately owned by the Rothschild family.  Remember this very clearly when you listen to all of the rhetoric.  This point cannot be over-emphasized.

The EU is going down this summer.  In watching the attack, one only has to realize the timing of certain events.  The idea is not having the general public “catch on”.  But for example, look at the timing of the Standards and Poor’s downgrading of Greek and Spanish bonds in relationship to the discussions of the EU ministers on developing a bailout plan for Greece.  I don’t think that is coincidence and it was a bucket of cold water on the whole process and sent waves of concern through the markets. Waves like for the first time since WWII that the German bond auction was not fully subscribed.

In a speech before the elitist Council on Foreign Relations organization in New York earlier this week, President of the European Central Bank Jean-Claude Trichet called for the imposition of global governance to be bossed by the G20 and the corrupt Bank of International Settlements in the name of safeguarding the global economy.

In an address entitled “Global Governance Today,” Trichet proclaims how the elite need to impose “A set of rules, institutions, informal groupings and cooperation mechanisms that we call “global governance”. During the course of the speech, Trichet uses the term “global governance” well over a dozen times, outlining how “global governance is of the essence” to avoid another financial crisis.

A full transcript of the speech was also carried by the Bank for International Settlements, an international organization of central banks that has constantly lobbied for a centralized global currency to replace that of nation states. Trichet praises the BIS as being “ahead of the curve” in dealing with the financial crisis during the speech.

Essentially his conclusions were as follows:

Conclusions

In conclusion I would like to stress four points.

First, global governance is of the essence to improve decisively the resilience of the global financial system. We avoided a major depression but it was a close call. Governments had to support the financial sector by putting at risk taxpayers’ money for the equivalent of around 25 % of GDP on both sides of the Atlantic. This as unprecedented. I am convinced that, if we do not reinforce significantly the resilience of the financial system, our democracies will not accept for a second time such a very large scale of rescue operation.

Second, a characteristic of the recent turbulences is not only that they [governments] displayed a high level of unpredictability but also an extreme rapidity in the succession of events characterizing the unfolding of the crisis. Global governance today must demonstrate a capacity to coordinate with agility and, where necessary, to decide extremely swiftly. This is also unprecedented.

Third, the crisis has had some paradoxical effects: on the one hand it has unleashed a tendency to reengage in financial nationalism if not mercantilism; on the other hand it had contributed to the recognition that a very high degree of interdependencies between economies called for a much higher level of cooperation. These two opposing forces are presently competing. It is imperative that effective global governance preserve the level playing field which is indispensable to foster global stability and prosperity. It is a major challenge. Both sides of the Atlantic have a very important responsibility in this respect in many domains, in particular in prudential and accounting rules.

And fourth, as we have seen the crisis has driven an historic change in the framework of global governance. In my view this transformation was overdue. But there are two immediate reasons for this change. One is positive: the emerging economies are now economically and financially so important and systemically so influential that they must have a full and proper ownership of global governance. But the second reason is negative: the industrialized countries have proven particularly clumsy in their handling of global finance before the crisis at the time when their responsibility in global governance was obviously overwhelming. There was therefore no reason to confirm their exclusive prime responsibility. This calls for the industrialized countries to be now particularly irreproachable in the delivery of their present and future contribution to the stability and prosperity of the global economy within the new, more inclusive framework.”

The primary outfit that will boss the institutions of global governance, according to Trichet, is the Global Economy Meeting (GEM), which regularly meets at the BIS headquarters in Basel. This group, states Trichet, “has become the prime group for global governance among central banks”. The GEM is basically a policy steering committee under the umbrella of the Bank for International Settlements.

The BIS is a branch of the of the Bretton-Woods International Financial architecture and closely allied with the Bilderberg Group. It is controlled by an inner elite that represents all the world’s major central banking institutions. John Maynard Keynes, perhaps the most influential economist of all time, wanted it closed down as it was used to launder money for the Nazis during World War II.

Financial website Investors Insight describe the BIS as “the most powerful bank you’ve never heard of,” labeling it “the most powerful financial institution on earth”.

The bank wields power through its control of vast amounts of global currencies. The BIS controls no less than 7% of the world’s available foreign exchange funds, as well as owning 712 tons of gold bullion.

“By controlling foreign exchange currency, plus gold, the BIS can go a long way toward determining the economic conditions in any given country,” writes Doug Casey. “Remember that the next time Ben Bernanke or European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet announces an interest rate hike. You can bet it didn’t happen without the concurrence of the BIS Board.” The BIS is basically a huge slush fund for global government through which secret transfers of wealth from citizens are surreptitiously handed to the IMF.

“For example, U.S. taxpayer monies can be passed through BIS to the IMF and from there anywhere. In essence, the BIS launders the money, since there is no specific accounting of where particular deposits came from and where they went,” writes Casey.

The Council On Foreign Relations comprises of influential elitists and powerbrokers from all sectors of government, business, academia and the media. It is the public face of the more secretive Bilderberg Group. The CFR only recruits members sympathetic to its agenda for global government and the elimination of U.S. sovereignty.

The scope of the CFR’s mission was best encapsulated by former Deputy Secretary of State under Clinton and CFR luminary Strobe Talbott, who told Time Magazine in July 1992, “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”

The next step is to eliminate all paper money.  Everything will go electronic.  In the US this is already being imposed as a beta test with social security and disability benefits.  By 2013, no one will get their money, just credits and electronic transfer period.

My suggestion is to get hold of and keep as many hard assets as you can and you better start now as time is very short, very short indeed.

To Survive and Flourish in a Crazy World

Events are now starting to unfold at a breath-taking pace.  Social changes, economic changes, geopolitical changes, and geophysical changes are all accelerating.  We all sense it.  So how does one keep their wits about them.  How do we adapt.  I long ago became an existentialist.  When asked to define what I meant, I always found it difficult to explain but I came across Alexander Green’s blog and I felt it absolute defined my philosophy exactly.  I have taken liberty to present it here. This has been widely disseminated and willingly shared by the author. So I pass it forward for your consideration. As Alex so aptly put it, we need a philosophy to not just live, but to flourish, how to create meaning in a senseless world.

Are You An Existentialist?
by Alexander Green

I recently received a letter from an Atlanta Falcons player who told me he quit the NFL not long after reading my book The Secret of Shelter Island. “I realized I was living someone else’s dream, not mine,” he said. “The truth is I haven’t enjoyed football since high school.” Some might be surprised that anyone would walk away from all that money and celebrity. But perhaps he’s an existentialist. They recognize the dangers of living an inauthentic life.

Who, exactly, are the existentialists and what do they know? Existentialism is a philosophical movement that came about in the late 19th century. It is not some abstract set of theoretical truths. Rather it is a no-nonsense philosophy that encourages you to take a hard look at your life and ask two essential questions: Who am I and how shall I live? Its goal is to awaken us from our slumber, have us grab life by the lapels and start living authentically.

Unfortunately, there is no particular school that offers a systematic account of existentialism. Its founders were fierce individualists who avoided labels, detested “-isms,” and refused to be lumped into any group. So there is no grand philosophical system here. Essentially, existentialism exists at the intersection of the essays of Friedrich Nitzsche and Jean-Paul Sartre, the novels of Albert Camus and Fyodor Dostoevsky, the religious writings of Soren Kierkegaard and Paul Tillich, and the plays of Harold Pinter and even William Shakespeare (particularly Hamlet and King Lear.) Clearly, existentialism is older than the term itself.

The philosophy is based on six general themes:

  1. Acceptance of the Absurd. Each of us drops unexpectedly into this world, in a universe where time – at least as we know it – has no beginning, space no end, and life no pre-set meaning. It is an inexplicable mystery. This realization is hardly new, of course. Ecclesiastes kicks off with the words “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity. What does man gain from all his labor and toil here under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 1:2-3). Existentialists believe that it’s only when you confront the fundamental absurdity of life that you begin to live honestly.
  2. Personal Freedom. Life itself may be meaningless, but you give it meaning when you begin making important choices. These, in turn, reveal who you are. With freedom of choice, however, comes responsibility. Taking ownership of your decisions means not blaming your parents, your spouse, your teachers or anyone else for the shape of your life. More responsibility brings greater freedom. And with it: hope.
  3. Individualism. Existentialists are keenly aware that society continually pulls you toward conformity. There are immense social pressures to go along, get along and live pretty much like everyone else. Existentialists challenge you to buck conventional wisdom, express your true nature, and follow your dream, whatever that may be.
  4. Authenticity. Most people are so consumed by desire, guilt, fear or anxiety about what other people think that they find it almost impossible to follow their true calling. However, it’s only when you begin to do what you want – and not what others expect – that you begin to live authentically. But expect resistance. Institutions want to mold you. Other people want you to go on their trip. It’s far easier to live unthinkingly as part of the crowd. Yet authentic individuals are in control of their own lives.
  5. Passion. Being passionate and engaged is crucial. This doesn’t mean acting crazy or hysterical. Quite the opposite, in fact. Existentialists believe you should devote yourself to a cause, one that you’re willing to organize your life around, perhaps even die for. For Kierkegaard, that passion was the pursuit of truth. For others it may be artistic expression, healing the sick, or building a business that employs hundreds and serves thousands. In all walks of life, you’ll find that passionate men and women are more purposeful.
  6. Acceptance of Death. Life is finite. Yet existentialists don’t see this as a reason for pessimism. Facing death is what forces you to take life seriously, use your time wisely and make meaningful choices. It should invigorate your life. As the character Andy puts it in The Shawshank Redemption: “Get busy living or get busy dying.”

Nietzsche, the philosopher most closely associated with existentialism, refers to it as the noble ideal. Your life, he argues, is an unwritten book that only you can write. Or, he says, visualize your life as a kind of artistic project, except that you are both the sculptor and the clay. This concept runs throughout existentialist works. Martin Heidegger counsels that we should learn to “dwell poetically.” Kierkegaard offers that, “to exist is an art.”

All existentialists agree that life has the meaning you choose to give it. Sartre even declared that man is “nothing else but what he makes of himself.” This view is fairly widespread in the West today. But it was once considered revolutionary. The Catholic Church, for instance, decided that Sartre’s ideas were so dangerous that it placed his entire works on the Vatican Index of Prohibited Books – including those he hadn’t yet written!

Ideas can be dynamite. And the proclamation that you should live your life on your own terms rather than according to the dictates of an institution was explosive. Perhaps that’s why existentialism is called the philosophy of freedom. No matter how things stand in your life, you choose how to interpret your situation. You choose how to respond to it. Even if you do nothing, you still have made a choice. There is no escaping the consequences of your actions – or your inaction. This makes some people profoundly uncomfortable, of course. They don’t like facing up to the world as it is. They don’t want responsibility. It’s easier to blame others, circumstances or “the breaks.”

Existentialism, however, is known as “the no-excuses philosophy.” You may be old. You may be broke. You may be sick. But existentialists say you start from where you are and move forward. How? By accepting responsibility and making choices. This isn’t always easy. Pursuing authenticity requires relentless self-examination. It exposes you to things about yourself that you may not want to know. It may cause discomfort or friction with others. But inauthentic lives, by comparison, are shallow, trivial and unsatisfying. They are often marked by the dogged pursuit of material goods, social status or the approval of others.

In many ways existentialism is a return to the roots of philosophy, a return to the ancients’ concern with truth, virtue and the art of living well. Existentialism offers a guide to the perplexed. It shows us not just how to live, but how to flourish, how to create meaning in a senseless world. Those who reject this philosophy often do so not because they don’t understand it but because they can’t face it. And that’s unfortunate. Existentialism provides a practical way of thinking about the world. It offers personal freedom and empowerment. It is a path to dignity and nobility.

An existentialist doesn’t live as though he has forever, frittering away his time and putting off until “someday” the things he really wants to do. He or she recognizes that each day, each moment, is precious and irreplaceable. Are you an existentialist? Only you can say, of course. But perhaps you should be.

Carpe Diem,

Alex

An Open Plea to all Patriots

In recent weeks the shock jocks and other paid pot stirrers have been playing the “let’s take the country back” card.  We have seen raids on militia and we are hearing where militia are calling their groups to get ready to act. This is a huge mistake.  To all of you who are militia or minutemen, you are all true patriots no doubt, but you are being played.  You will precipitate that very thing you are prepared to fight against.  You will not save our country, but ensure the suspension totally of our constitution and our rights. In short, you are being used to complete an agenda. I would hazard a guess that every group that exists is infiltrated.  Every name is known to the PTB. A complete inventory of your weapons with locations are known.  Every tactic or plan you have is also known.  Please think long and hard before acting.  Really educate yourself to the realities around you.  Let me make a few points you should consider.

First, the PTB are in their final desperate hours, but until now they have been able to complete each task.  You are the instrument for their final task which is to declare martial law and enforce a police state in the US.  For at least five years, they have been planning for this and they have encouraged and even incited you to act.

Point One: The government has established the so-called “FEMA” Camps.  They are real, they are ready to imprison US citizens, and they are meant for you!

Point Two: The government has established Northern Command and it now has 60,000 Army personnel ready to descend on you.

Point Three: The President under Presidential Executive Order 13528 has taken control of the National Guards. Under the guise of the 2008 National Defense Authorization Actmore potentially illegal ‘legislation’ — the President has established the bipartisan Council of Governors to advise, and exchange views and information with the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the White House Homeland Security Council on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions. The Secretary of Defense will designate the Executive Director of this toothless Council and all of the National Guards will be in the hands of the PTB, instead of each governor.  This assures that no single governor can “revolt”.

Point Four: The President declared a national emergency in the Swine Flu so-called Epidemic which has not been rescinded thus suspending Posse Comitatus.

Point Five: The PTB and really it is a shadow government that is controlling the real government has attacked our economy and for that matter the entire economy of the world.  Read my blog for the full evidence of that fact.

Point Six: The PTB, through, the shadow government, has instilled an atmosphere of non-co-operation in CONgress for the purpose of convincing all that our government is no longer effective or representative of we the people. This was done to incite you into action which in turn gives them the excuse to declare martial law and deploy “their” troops to incarcerate you and take all weapons from the hands of citizens.

Point Seven: The MSM (all owned by the PTB) will play your every action out as a danger to society and the reason to take “military” action while giving you the sense that your actions are gaining support in the general public. This simply is not the truth and you know it.

Point Eight: I believe that most of you in the militia groups and minutemen groups are real and honest patriots with a deep love for this country and the principles we stand for and have fought for in every generation. My family has served in every generation since WWI. I served 27 months in Vietnam. I know who you really are and I know your motives are genuine. But if you call to arms now, you will be remembered in history as the precipitating factor to the end of freedom as we know it.

Point Nine: Our forefathers constructed our constitution in such a manner that we as individuals ALWAYS have the power and the power is still there and feared by the PTB.  It is our VOTE.  It is the ability to always throw the bums out.  This is where our energy should be spent.  To all you patriots, especially in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas where you are strong and significant in numbers, get people to run on the ballot in both state and federal elections.  Pledge a platform of creating a public campaign finance law, ending the financial shenanigans such as credit derivatives, investigating agency heads for malfeasance, and creating an environment of state rights having precedence of Federal mandates.  In other words use the constitution correctly.

In the movie V for Vendetta there was a great line.  “The people should not fear their government, the government should fear the people”. You are right in assuming that the PTB and the shadow government have been planning for years to take our democracy from us.  However, you should realize that you and your actions are a tool to achieve that goal if you act as you are now planning to act.  DON”T DO IT.  Do not play into their hands.  They consider you not informed or sophisticated.  They consider you to be cannon fodder.  They consider you to be sheep that can be herded at will.  Show them that you are none of those things.  Show the  PTB that you are true patriots that believe in and understand how the constitution works.  Guns and violence are not the weapons of choice, it is an informed vote and an organized political assault.  This is the weapon they fear the most.

To all of our citizens, the time for apathy is over.  We all must actively and in an informed manner participate in our government.  Run candidates, vote, support people who are not bought and paid for by some special interest.  Do this at the local, state and federal levels. Time is simply up. There can be no more waiting.  It is not a call to arms, but a call to the ballot box.

I have no expectation that the right people will read this and consider my words, but I hope it may reach a few of us who can at least present my thoughts for consideration before it is too late.  I thank you for your efforts and I pray for us all.
