The Beginning of the End

It couldn’t really be more perfect. A perusal of right and left outlets and opinion on Facebook shows the “game” has really been stepped up.

Anti-government sentiment will be so high in the coming years that people will be clamoring for multinational control. They pretty much have it now, but I mean direct control. Control of resources, control of masses via control of food, “news”/propaganda, gas, lodging, work, and who goes in the slammer and who gets to watch those in the slammer because, you know, unemployment rate due to outsourcing, automation and over-working the remaining human work force.

Taking a sharp turn, you can get the general idea of where things are gonna go by reading Peter Watts’ Rifters trilogy, or watching SyFy’s Incorporated. You can also watch some of history repeat itself via Taboo, when the East India Company ruled the world.

We’re just too gullible, too willing to accept what the people who are leading us to the cliff say is the problem and who is responsible for it. Let me straighten that out for you. Not that you’ll listen, not that you’ll understand.

It’s power. It’s always power. And today more than ever there’s a very big gap between those who have it and those who don’t. And they have every institution that is supposed to be an impediment to having it absolutely on their side.

C’est fini.

Auf Wiedersehen, Miss American Pie

You might find some solace in the fact that a country with a partial electorate this gullible and people in positions of power this insane and/or manipulative…

Pizzagate

…is going to get what it deserves. But the question came up regarding this prediction when I was discussing it the other night:

Travis Getty, “Here’s How the US Empire Will Devolve Into Fascism and Then Collapse — According to Science,” Raw Story, 7 December 2016:

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/12/heres-how-the-us-empire-will-devolve-into-fascism-and-then-collapse-according-to-science/

[a Norwegian professor at the University of Hawaii and Transcend Peace University, Johan Galtung] predicted in his 2009 book, “The Fall of the American Empire — and then What?” that the U.S. was plagued by 15 internal contradictions that would end its global power by 2020, and Galtung warned that phase of the decline would usher in a period of reactionary fascism.

American fascism would spring from its capacity for global violence, a vision of exceptionalism, a belief in an inevitable and final war between good and evil, the cult of a strong state leading that battle, and a cult of the “strong leader.”

Galtung said all of those elements presented themselves during the Bush era, but he fears fascist tendencies could sharpen under Trump as those cultists lash out in disbelief at the loss of American power.

The sociologist identified unsustainable economic, social, military and political contradictions that would eventually topple the U.S. as a world power.

“What’s going to take its place?”

What indeed?

While a portion of this is nothing new, the point is I had not carried my thinking quite far enough. The point? There are people in government who don’t just want to cripple the federal government; they want to completely destroy it.

They want to set up Ted Cruz’s Dominionist/Seven Mountains kingdom, reflecting more Saudi Arabia than true Sharia Law, though certainly there are elements of legislating the bedroom that would fit with this nutty element’s intrusion upon what occurs between consenting adults. This while ignoring what occurs in the military between a non-consenting adult and a rapist. Since this works in the favor of multinationals who are waiting their turn to run the world, it continues and the loony tunes march toward inverted fascism and/or fascism seems inevitable. Imagine the Saudis controlling the Taliban and you get the idea with the difference being a Western spin with Jesus instead of Mohamed on the war banners.

This is because only a state–and then only a powerful one–could possibly present an obstacle to direct corporate control of the planet.

And that is largely because the intelligence community is just following orders. Nur nach Befehlen. Can you hear me now?

Bulger once volunteered for a secret CIA program studying the effects of LSD on humans and now the I-Team has obtained a notebook in which Whitey wrote down his thoughts and fears about taking the mind altering drug.

While in federal prison for bank robbery in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, Bulger volunteered to take part in the covert CIA program called MK-ULTRA in exchange for time off from his sentence.

http://www.salon.com/2012/12/02/better_than_bourne_who_really_killed_nick_deak/

The Stanford Research Institute received CIA funding, and Dr. Melges published work about using drugs and hypnosis to create “disassociative states,” i.e., induced schizophrenia. One of Melges’ partners on these experiments was a doctor named Leo E. Hollister, who first dosed Ken Kesey with LSD as part of an Army experiment in 1960. He later admitted to author John Marks that he conducted drug research for the CIA. Marks’ 1979 book, “The Search for the Manchurian Candidate,” contains numerous such revelations about other government researchers.

In other words, the doctor who cared for Lang in Santa Clara was a senior figure at one of the CIA’s top institutional grantees.

OREGON SHOOTING

What came out of it? Guess.

The drug lobby is pushing for more drugs to “fix” our shooter problem:

Joe Khalil, “Issue of Mental Health Part of National Discourse Again Following Oregon College Shooting,” Fox 40 Sacramento, 2 October 2015:

http://fox40.com/2015/10/02/issue-of-mental-health-part-of-national-discourse-again-following-oregon-college-shooting/

Despite the obvious in some/not all cases, but especially Columbine, that some of these people were well-drugged at the time they went postal:

Dan Roberts, “Every Mass Shooting Shares One Thing In Common & It’s NOT Weapons,” Ammoland, 1 April 2013:

Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Columbine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold’s medical records have never been made available to the public.

http://www.ammoland.com/2013/04/every-mass-shooting-in-the-last-20-years-shares-psychotropic-drugs/

Supporters of the drug lobby are pushing for more gun control:

Matt Vespa, “Obama Says Gun Violence ‘Is Something We Should Politicize’ In Statement about Oregon Shooting,” Townhall, 1 October 2015:

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2015/10/01/obama-says-gun-control-is-something-we-should-politicize-at-oregon-shooting-presser-n2059996

And supporters of the gun lobby are pooh-poohing drugs and calling for more guns to protect ourselves from the crazies:

David Edwards, “Less than 90 minutes after Oregon shooting, CNN analyst suggests school’s ‘gun free zone’ to blame,” Rawstory, 1 October 2015:

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/10/less-than-90-minutes-after-oregon-shooting-cnn-analyst-suggests-schools-gun-free-zone-to-blame/

Less than two hours after massacre at Umpqua Community College on Thursday, CNN military analyst Rick Francona suggested that the shooter had chosen the location because it was a gun free zone.

Note that this is a win-win situation for our criminal elite: More guns or drugs = more kickbacks; less guns and drugs means more control since only cops and mercenaries will be armed and more “crazies” for all of us to fear so we’ll be begging armed sadists to protect us. More drugs means they can ignore your opinions because there’s something wrong with you or you’d agree with their greedy warmongering actions. Perfect recipe for fascism no matter how you slice it.

CIA

Additionally, the 3-D chess move that really gives away CIA’s involvement with the shooting, regards 4Chan, one of those places where members of anonymous would hang out because literally everyone who uses it is anonymous except for the administrator.

Jason Silverstein, Larry Mcshane, Nancy Dillon, “Madman kills nine, injures seven after shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon,” NY Daily News, 2 October 2015:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/shooting-oregon-umpqua-community-college-article-1.2381711

Several message boards noted the shooter may have revealed his plans Wednesday night, in posts on the website 4chan.

“Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest,” one post reads.

“happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning…so long space robots…Will post again in the am. 10 min countdown. Won’t say more to much to prepare (sic)”

4Chan is therefore a government target due to association with Anonymous.

And let’s not forget the sockpuppets. Recall again NTrepid’s system reported on by Barrett Brown:

Patrick McGuire, “Why Is Barrett Brown Facing 100 Years in Prison?,” Vice, 31 January 2013:

http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/why-is-barrett-brown-facing-100-years-in-jail

Alongside Abraxas and Cubic on those tax filings is another company called Ntrepid. According to Florida State’s records of corporations, Richard Helms is the director of that company. In 2011, Barrett’s work helped lead the Guardian to their report that Ntrepid won a $2.76 million-dollar contract from Centcom (U.S. Central Command), to create “online persona management” software, also known as “sockpuppetry.” To break it down in plain English, online persona management was created to populate social networks with a bunch of fake and believable social media personas to “influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.”

Ntrepid also has a product they call Tartan, that’s detailed in this internal presentation hosted by the Wall Street Journal. In Ntrepid’s own parlance, they describe Tartan as a program that can “Analyze illicit organizations and less structured social networks by identifying: Ranks of influence within human networks… [and can] end the use of [online] aliases.” Clearly they are looking to dismantle the smoke and mirrors that groups like Anonymous maintain, by hanging out in chatrooms where they do not need to identify themselves officially, with many private communications happening at once. This creates a difficult to penetrate den, where people can easily hide online. Evidently, Ntrepid is seeking to pull all of that apart with Tartan.

What they really mean is

1} Create phony online consensus as a means of creating peer pressure in order to achieve the goals of the Deep State/military industrial complex.

2} To identify whistleblowers so that the criminal elite can continue manipulating and stealing without hiccups.

Let’s get something clear. The purpose of the 2nd amendment was never for hunting, nor was it for protecting your home from burglars. It was always to prevent illegal seizure of your property by the government, as a check on Congress’ standing army in case tyranny should take over. At the time British soldiers were well in the minds of the framers. They had taken over homes as if they owned them, much like the House of Saud does in its own country. And, like how Blackwater behaved during Sandy:

Jamie Wilson, “Mercenaries Guard Homes of the Rich in New Orleans,” Guardian, 12 September 2005:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2005/sep/12/hurricanekatrina.usa

What they leave out is how they broke into homes, threw furniture in the street, and set up headquarters and sleeping quarters wherever they damn well pleased.

Jeremy Scahill, “Overkill: Feared Blackwater Mercenaries Deploy in New Orleans,” DemocracyNow, 12 September 2005:

http://www.democracynow.org/2005/9/12/overkill_feared_blackwater_mercenaries_deploy_in

Yes, that’s right. And they also alleged that they had been deputized. And another key point is that these Blackwater guys said that they were given the authority to use lethal force, as well as the power to make arrests. And when we asked them about this use of them in the United States, they said that they believe that we’re going to see a lot more of this and that this is a trend. So, I think that this is a very, very disturbing development that we are seeing here on the streets of New Orleans, Amy.

And let’s not forget the unconfirmed words of the American Sniper:

Terrence McCoy, “The ‘unverifiable’ legacy of Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in American history,” Washington Post, 30 July 2014:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/07/30/the-complicated-but-unveriable-legacy-of-chris-kyle-the-deadliest-sniper-in-american-history/

“…He and another sniper traveled to New Orleans, set up on top of the Superdome, and proceed to shoot dozens of armed residents who were contributing to the chaos.” The magazine said one conversation participant said Kyle “claimed to have shot thirty men on his own,” while another said Kyle and the other killed 30 between them.

Of course, they primarily mean black people trying to eat.

This was not a lone wolf shooter but rather the employee of an organization that engages in drug running, mass murder and surveillance, torture, protecting corporations who fund terrorism, assassinating and making political prisoners of journalists, and has lied about every one of these things.

BBD – Barf Imitates Sites

{Well not entirely, but y’know, headline pun junky.}

In June of 2009, while I was in the middle of attempting to get the first in a series of what I hoped would be a three-issue comic produced, an anti-abortion group picked up the same URL but with .org that I was using for the comic miniseries with .com. Wasn’t the first time something similar and odd occurred. In The Wisp I had a couple of Greenwich Village progressive activists using Boston Tea Party methods and memes…well before I had heard of the TP movement.

Now, the Squidgate juror has a website to sell her wares as I think I’ve noted before. Her URL, with very little tweaking, resolves to a cannabis seller’s site. Imagine the confusion among intellectually challenged nothing-to-do-but-prey-on-Americans intelligence/private prison system perveyors…or an “intelligent” computer system that can’t think for itself but makes spooks look busy so as to justify their bloated budgets and contracts.

Thought of the day: Compare and contrast the real-world ALEC, hidden from public view from the 1970s until the 2000s with the fictional, disinformational Illuminati conspiracy theory organization.

BBD – The Downward Spy-ral

Yet another slo-mo train wreck as I watch friends deal with severe financial problems and am unable to help in any substantial fashion.

The lesson, it seems, from the Obama years, will be never help anyone, just always look out for yourself. Not surprising, I suppose, coming from Chicago and DC, but just so very much at odds with the rhetoric that it becomes difficult to imagine someone so very comfortable with speaking so eloquently on social justice and having his people incessantly engaging in every form of injustice imaginable. How did we get from what appeared to be a gust of fresh air when it began to the same only more pungent? How does one listen to fairy tales in addresses and deal with horror shows in the real world that seem so foreign from the former? A promise that if you try to make a difference, you will be crushed, pulverized, willingly and gleefully by the sociopathic system that gets advertised with labels like “patriotism” and “necessary”, “free market” and “progress.”

They want it all. And they’re gonna get it no matter who’s in charge.

So whatever you do, don’t care about anything or anyone because the political/corporate machine will destroy it. That’s the bipartisan lesson to us all.

Re-Re-Re-Introduction

It’s always good to step back now and again and attempt to explain why this blog is here, why I mention the stuff that I do, and why you should care about any of it.

History

While on a school trip to Germany in 1988, there were a couple of odd occurrences. This came after I had decided not to pursue any sort of foreign service that I had spent much of my teenage years intending to pursue. I would describe my 1980s self as someone not unlike the psychopathic PTSD murderer depicted in the latest from Dirty Harry. Though the Soviet threat still loomed it was clear from the books available that terrorism was on its way to replacing communism as the next big threat, by which now I mean a means of taking all your stuff and rights under the auspices of protecting you.

The notion of protecting the American people is of course utter bullshit. Like Son of Sam and other devil-told-me-to-do-it psychopaths, the US government and its Siamese twin Wall Street requires the deaths of Americans in order to maintain the cash cow that the global war on terror is. The enemies that the one hand is focused on defeating were nurtured, trained, radicalized, encouraged, cajoled, manipulated, exaggerated, and every other kind of deceptive practice for everything from Charlie Wilson’s war in Afghanistan to Saudi Arabia’s incessant hate-US education system to “Balkanization” which grew out of OPERATION GLADIO after WWII.

Now

Foreign strife is not enough for a system that demands more profit next year than this one. That is of course unsustainable, but they don’t look that far down the road, merely expect the worse things get, the more economic opportunities that will provide. We will not only be divided into the haves and have-nots as this progresses, but also predator and prey.

But why this blog? The balance of nature requires that prey keep just slightly ahead of prey. That is, prey must remain just slightly smarter, faster, more knowledgeable, and whatever else is required for survival. When this does not occur, the predators also suffer because they run out of prey. This kind of balance is what made capitalism work in so far as it did. Now, capitalism is the biggest threat to itself.

Do not let the bullshit of the Republicans and Tea Party favorites mislead you: the Democrats are every bit as vulture in their capitalistic attitudes as these other species. HCR was a handout to the health care sector. The principles of collective bargaining don’t really apply because the reform doesn’t give people, merely the states in so far as their corruption allows, that power.

And there really isn’t anything else to point to. By way of example, watch as the GOP accuses Obama of cut and run in Yemen, whereas they complained that he didn’t in Benghazi.

But that’s just an inside family feud. See again the previous post.

The point then is to alert folks who don’t reject the truth out of hand due to the existence of Mel Gibson, Alex Jones, and their ilk. MKULTRA really existed as did many subproject. CIA really is in it for the bucks, as is FBI, NSA, Booz Allen Hamilton, HB Gary Federal, Stratfor, and Palantir. The Constitution is dead. Pointing to one or two exceptions, as “whistleblower advocate” Brad Moss might do doesn’t make it otherwise. The law must apply to and serve everyone or it is simply a tool of tyranny.

So we have the Primer,  the Mind-Affecting Technology tabs up top. The rest. The book explaining a portion of my “oddysey” through various forms of illegal activities now allowed because of terrorism and fear. Those same means, methods, and organizations are one the one hand causing most of our problems and then turning around and saying let us take the gloves off, give us more money. Some of the money of course wends its way back to politicians who then turn around and request undoing investigations into what made us less safe, ruined our view of reality, and made the US not only less safe, but committers of crimes against humanity.

It is torture, of a sort, that is absolutely occurring on US soil, against US citizens, for these same purposes. I know. They did it to me.

While you might not be locked in a cage when this is done to you, there will be many reasons–engineered by the public and private psycho clown parade–why you won’t want to step outside. While they won’t have guards waking you up every few minutes, you may experience sleep deprivation from a sudden inexplicable rush of adrenalin that won’t go away, incessant phone calls from anyone and everything, neighbors, roommates, city workers who suddenly decide it is time to make a lot of noise.

Most of these tricks revolve around altering your perception of cause and effect and the order of events. See for example again the previous post. They didn’t cajole Jason Hammond into a plea deal because I cared about him; they got me to care about him because they knew that they were going to do that.

All in order to try to turn me into a terrorist or similar. As was the very possible murder of my grandmother. That ploy, of course, an attempt to make me blame Palin and her ilk for it as Palin had said HCR was a “plot to kill grandma.” All of which makes the Democrats the most likely perps.

Similar to this was the 23 December 2009 fire in which parties unknown tried to frame a DHS border guard’s family.

Now, the burning question becomes, why me, why take me on a tour of the dark bloated underbelly of the intelligence community–and then some–if I’m just lost in the noise… Someone not much believed… Dismissed out of hand due to normalcy bias and it-can’t-be-therfore-it-isn’t. Why do that?

The best answer I can give is, this system is schizophrenic. It is certainly broken, and so exhibiting symptoms of mental illness makes some sense. Is it the serial killer who has an impulse to get caught? Is it one agency or subcontractor fighting against the direction things are going, or playing some sort of turf war? Is it some mentally disturbed, legal pretzel compliance with the Open Government Directive combined with a vague mission statement from 1947? Is it an insider, a sort of whistleblower, using me as his or her mouthpiece?

In any case it appears more like a colossal joke from where I sit. The truth is so damn crazy, that I didn’t much believe it, still don’t want to, and I was drugged, harassed, tortured out of my frickin’ mind before I could come to accept it.

Up next: some more memories of Chicago and my lament that it wasn’t in fact the most dangerous neighborhood there, just the third or so.

BBD: Implicating Towards Fascism

Those who have read a lot of this blog and Wicked Game may recall that, just days before the Squidgate trial, my iPhone and cash were pickpocketed. The thief, a Roma man I assume, was nice enough to leave me my cards and put my wallet back in my pocket after taking the green–which allowed me to continue my trip to Michigan from NYC for the trial. The longer version included that I caught a Roma woman trying to take my wallet earlier in the evening at another bar. Stopped one theft, fell to another.

So it is here in jolly ol’ Port Huron, though not for me this time and through the Interwebz, not in person. The Squidgate juror was subject to an online scammer, though I suggested immediately that it might be one and sure enough, that is what it turned out to be. No loss of money, but loss of time and a “too good to be true” kind of crushing thing that I won’t otherwise go into more details about. Lets just say money is very tight and this promised to help.

But, having escaped this doom, and reported it to IC3, we move on.

Except there was another house member who was not so lucky. Seeking some online deals, he visited Kayak for some travel plans. Kayak had an ad or something suggesting some other sites to check. He did check those sites. One had a deal that fit his needs. He paid, with a debit card that has one of the major credit card company’s logos stamped on it. And of course it turned out to be a sham. The site itself was very well done but the travel confirmation contained misspellings, etc. and he discovered later that this site was a scammer site. Additionally and of course, the credit card company and bank are refusing a refund even though the product sold is not being delivered.

Now, most idiots living here would think, “Gee…maybe we should allow NSA, CIA, FBI, IRS, etc. to see every single goddam thing we do and say. You know to protect us from this!” like Ernst Stavros Blofeld Michael Hayden has been calling for, “digital Blackwater.” What the SOPA, PIPA, TPP plans to bring: protection for large corporations from criticism by actual homo sapiens. Yes, there’s nothing like being unable to criticize products and services {and government…} to ensure they don’t suck.

This is the point: there are already laws in place that could and should have taken these people down. Again, FBI’s “good things happen when we don’t enforce the law” mantra coupled with their COINTELPRO activities make it clear that the law is not the problem; the lack of focus on it diverted to attacking critics and anyone who challenges power are the problem. Stupid and corrupt, under the guise of nationalism and righteousness, are the driving forces. Well, that and greed in high places.

So F.U. Taken for $450 is nothing compared to what you people have done to the American people as a whole through the credit crunch, housing money theft, perpetual country-bankrupting war on terror, and plan to continue doing with PSYOPs like these. Fascism is not the answer, and in fact is in large part both the problem and impediment to dealing with real problems.

corporatenazis
Get used to it. They may know nothing, but they’re growing in numbers.
