A WELL-PLAYED HAND: HOW AMERICA (AND THE WORLD) HAVE BEEN FOOLED (REPRISE-2020).


This article was originally published shortly after the Nov 2016 (s)elections.

It is “Rebroadcast” here, as a painful reminder of what some of us were already seeing, hearing, and thinking: “OH, NO”! – Added more commentary at bottom.


After a weekend of deep thought and reflection,

I had to wake up and realize, once again, that I too, felt as if I also had a personal stake in the “election” of 2016. Though, I took a “wait-and-see” approach to the whole scene, I still felt pulled in to the festive look and feel of the moment. Then the proverbial “hang-over”, after the party, finally wears off, and the truth once again, shows THE reality.

To make things fairly simple and easy to comprehend: The election process, in MOST of the world’s governments and regimes, still falls firmly into place, under the control of those who have decided “election outcomes” long before the People become aware of WHO will become the next contenders. All our hopes, dreams, and many other desires, are well-known to those who are firmly in control of the world’s systems. These great and cunning wielders of power have had many years to perfect the art of illusion.

One thing that serves me very well when doing an “after-analysis” (or an “after-action review”, as the more military-minded may refer to it) of the whole process, and such things like “hotly-contested” events, like “elections”, and that is memory of past events, and how they played out. The “elections” of 2016 in the United States of America being NO EXCEPTION. When one can take a detached, dispassionate view of neutrality, towards such events, one often sees the sheer cunning and amazing amount of effort that went into crafting so convincing an illusion.

It should be plain as day to some, by now, that these “elections” are pure fantasy and only give the appearance, illution if you will, of any real choice. What is most amazing to me: Much of the “alternative media”, and other small “journalism” sites and organizations, have also fallen into the well-played illusion. Some of the alternative journalists, I used to trust in very much, have begun to show some of the amount of control exerted upon them. Certain sites and blogs, once use to report and showcase the truth about the controlled system of “elections”, and the political power-plays for control over public perception. We all love the idea of the “good guys” championing over the “bad guys”, but this also distracts from the very fact that BOTH sides are usually firmly under the control of the VERY SAME SYSTEM AND ITS MANAGERS! It does one very little good to “bet on a horse in the race, that is -against- the adversary’s interests, when it is that -adversary- who owns ALL the horses in the race!”

Let’s start examining this previous “election”, by going over some of the more interesting details that many may not notice.

Typically,

Our “elections” are often commonly-understood as “voting for the lesser of two evils”.

The problem with this theory is, if we are STILL voting for an evil, what are we really accomplishing? No matter what we do, “evil” still wins, whether a little, or a lot! Just as Mercury is toxic and deadly, whether given at the rate of 10uG (micro-grams) per day, or up to 10mG per day, the end result is – YOU WILL STILL END UP DEAD, BECAUSE MERCURY (AT EITHER OF THOSE RATES) IS STILL LETHAL! ! ! Yet, we are expected (and encouraged) to ignore that reality, when it is the “pushers” who stand to benefit in the end. All one needed to do, prior to some crafty changes in election-financing laws, was look at how each candidate’s campaign was either financed or supported.

An interesting observation here:

One candidate was already worth billions of U.S. dollars when he ran for office. The other chose to use many hidden sources of political funding, most of it outright illegal, to fund the campaign. The “billionaire” even played well, the idea of waving off the President’s normal salary schedule (a brilliant “hero” move for the gullible masses!) to look even more like he was “for the little guy”! Yet, no one thinks to question in HOW it was he was able to attain, and even maintain such levels of wealth and power, in a grossly corrupt and unbalanced world economy as we have now. There are many other innovative and entrepreneurial souls out there in the human side of the world, but so very few ever get to realize such status and wealth (usually, only after he/she has also sold out on principles and ethics). PLUS, if such wealth is based solely upon the value of a controlled currency, or based solely on “paper”, then such wealth is unstable and can soon be worthless overnight, if deemed so by those who control the world economy and its basis of value! This has been the sheer weakness behind debt-based economies, and “monetized debt” (to use the bankers’ own parlance) for as many centuries that such economic models have been practiced. So, would you STILL trust such an individual to stand against a system, in which his own wealth is dependent upon? One who is worth so much in “paper”, is not likely to challenge the power of those who control the value of his “paper”. – Sounds like the perfect puppet, to install into a position of power, and “public trust”!

Now, an old adage that should be resurfacing on account of this well-played illusion-of-choice, called the “Election of 2016”:

The most believable lies, always incorporate large amounts of the truth. ”

Could this also be said of a well-crafted illusion, like the “illusion of choice”? If Candidate “A” was a devout Communist, and Candidate “B” was lesser a Communist, but more of a “light Socialist”, yet NEITHER truly supported the Individual’s right of choice, have we really gained anything by voting for “the lesser of two evils” when in what is supposed to be a “Representative Republic”? If Candidate “A” was for MORE government intervention and involvement in personal matters, while Candidate “B” was for MORE rights for big-business and more decision-making BY the executives of big-business, yet – the “little guy” is STILL left without any choice in the matter as to he/she would live, and what rights he/she can expect to enjoy? – Do the People still win in some way, or is that simply another illusion of “choice”, crafted by a convincing “second-hand reality” we call “elections”?

Now, let’s get to the bottom of this scheme, and how it has worked so well, year after year after year.

The globalists know very well how angry the world’s People are, with the disintegrating quality of life, the unfairness of the “system” and its players’ treatment of the People, the constant state of warfare and endless destruction of life and of the People’s lands. The globalists know that the People are getting combative, because they are becoming much better informed as to what is going on, and how corrupt and CRIMINAL this “world system” is. The globalists know that their power is being openly challenged by an ever-increasing number of very unhappy People. They know that the “world wide web” has become an exceptional tool and learning resource for up-to-the-minute updated info on what is happening around the world. The globalists know that they are having to change tactics, and become more innovative in exerting their power over the People of this world. They are also having to devise new ways of hiding the mechanisms of their control. – I very seriously doubt that these globalists are really in any state of panic (another well-performed public image) over their control system being actively challenged. They have usually been several steps ahead of the rest of humanity. With the incredible rise in surveillance technologies, and how to more-discreetly employ them, they are constantly knowledgeable on the latest trends in human behavior, and the general attitudes of the human population.

Therefore,

Having “elections” step up the excitement, create the “hopeful” atmosphere, and various other cunning forms of emotional-manipulations, these globalists have once again shown how masterful they are, at controlling the human population through constant manipulation. This being very much the part in the Grand Illusion, that very aware folks like Jon Rappoport, Dr. Ron Paul, and a few others have thought of as “The Matrix”. (This, in reference to the movie mini-series by that name.) – The problem is, if you partook of this shameful, illusion-of-choice “election” of 2016 (or many previous ones) without realizing the falsehoods behind them, did you REALLY take the “Red Pill”??? – Is taking any of these proverbial “Pills”, doing any good?

Do any of you even remember, let alone KNOW, that Dr. Ron Paul ran for President of the United States, three times, and THREE TIMES, the “media” did not even acknowledge his candidacy until late in the game? The media even refused to acknowledge Dr. Paul’s stunning victories in the various “straw-polls”, leading up to the primaries. Yet, Mr. Donald Trump was supposedly so hated for his “anti-establishment” talking-points and rhetoric, that the media spent countless hours on negative publicity of him and his campaign (think: “FREE-PUBLICITY”)!?!? – What’s more, the “seismic shift” of the “election” exit polls? ? ? – Something fishy here, perhaps? ? ?

Then,

The usual public reaction upon “reporting” the final exit poll results! – That was the masterpiece of this wonderful illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”. What’s more, EVEN much of the “alternative media” got behind the wheel in helping to steer public opinion towards “the underdog candidate”! ! ! – PURE BRILLIANCE of executing a well-played, well-scripted illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”! – Does this not smell of something funny to you? ? ? Does this not have a familiar ring, from events of past “elections”? ? ? Do you not feel like you were played for fools, as I did for even a short time? ? ?

Dr. Ron Paul nailed it on the head, on his website several months ago: “America may be in for a big disappointment come election day.” – NICE, Dr. Paul! I’d say YOU nailed it right on the head!

From my taking a “wait-and-see” attitude, and “giving the Donald a chance”, has served me well to cause me to “back up, and regroup”, and really SEE the Big Game as it has been played upon America AND the world. Just seeing some of the earliest choices for cabinet-level positions, has had me very concerned at what these united states of America face after Inauguration Day of 2017! This Nationalists’ “Dream Team”, also looks more like a “War-Hawks’ Dream Team”, a “Corporatists’ Dream Team”, a “Privatizationists’ Dream Team”, and “More Corporate-Welfare Dream Team”, an “Israel-Firster Dream Team”, and a “Facists’ Dream Team”! – Each and every future “appointment”, has some serious history behind him/her, and none of it very good for this “Land of The Free, Home of The Brave”!

Think about it for a moment. Where does John Bolton fit in, when it comes to the grand game? How about Frank Gaffney? What about William Kristol? So far, ALL THREE of these folks are part of the list of authors of the dreaded “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: A Project for the New American Century”, published on the AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE’s (A.E.I.) website! ! ! – These three are pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalists! – Is THAT the sort of people we, as a Nation, want deciding policy for the next four or even eight years? ? ? Then, we have Senator Jeff Sessions, a definite pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalist type! Then, *** GASP!!! ***, we have Ingrid Newkirk as a ‘possible’ cabinet-level pick? I seriously hope not! She is one of those who wishes to get government to outlaw any and all forms of human interaction with ANY non-human animals! This EVEN GOES FOR COMPANION ANIMALS AND ANY THERAPY WHICH INVOLVES HUMAN AND ANIMAL INTERACTION! Nevermind that some of today’s brighter areas of modern medicine, has seen animal-based human therapy as exceptionally beneficial and healing (we are talking physical, emotional, and social therapies, where (non-human) animals play a very big part in the healing process). Yet, the folks like Ms. Newkirk, many members of P.E.T.A., and EVEN the infamously corrupt A.S.P.C.A. see ANY human-and-animal interaction as detrimental to the (non-human) animals, and a violation of the (non-human) animals’ rights! As to Ret. Lt.Gen. Michael Flynn, being billed as “anti-ISIS”, I have major concerns of him also being very pro-war, with some neo-con slant. Call me paranoid, but the fact does not change that we are STILL talking “Washington insiders” making up a considerable portion of what is shaping up to be the next administration. As to Mike Pompeo, I am very troubled on his continued support of the high-tech surveillance “police-state” that we are having to endure now. It was already bad enough that the Obama Administration saw to it, that the “surveillance state” continued to grow, far beyond any reasonable boundary necessary for “national security”. So, Mr. Pompeo’s stance on this issue has me seriously concerned if the United States of America will ever get to enjoy the right of privacy again. I am still out looking for more info on Mr. Steve Bannon. I have not been too impressed with Breitbart “News”, over the years, and especially with its subtle, but noticeable “neo-con” slanted view of the issues. It seems that when Andrew Breitbart (the site’s founder) was murdered (as I see it), his legacy “news” organization greatly changed in its way of reporting. Either way, it looks like another set-up upon America in the making!

I’d hate to be the one to say it, folks but . . .

– “AMERICA, I THINK WE HAVE BEEN *NEO*-CONNED, ONCE AGAIN!”

It makes NO DIFFERENCE to simply trade in one globalist puppet for another! Something that I really wish the “alternative media” would rather have not forgotten, in this frenzied “cult-of-personality” that occurred this last “election” season (as has been the case in many previous “election” seasons). No matter which direction the exit-poll results were swayed, the “Matrix” is still the ultimate winner, NOT the People! Time to wake up, People. If your “vote” really meant anything, if your desire for changes for the better was a real passion, if your heart really was set on making life better, not only here in America, but the around the world in general, YOU would be an active player in that process of change! Our “officials”, in their present capacity, and in the fact that they are still “human”, and prone to those very same human tendencies of being corruptible, should NOT be the ones to be held responsible for those changes YOU seek. YOU, ME, and all individual human beings should be an active part of the process of those changes. So long as we continue to trust others to do FOR us, that which WE should be doing on our own, we will continue to be betrayed by those who have expertly USED our feelings and emotions against us, and used our political processes as a distraction from our REAL responsibilities.

When one begins to fully understand the concept of “controlled-opposition”, and one begins to see controlled “elections” (and the media-controlled selection of ‘candidates’ to parade before the people), one can finally come to realize how PHONY the whole “election” process really is! ! ! – This is also a world-wide program. When we have the proverbial “left” on the one side, and the proverbial “right” (or, supposed “alt-right” by the controlled leftists) on the other, and we have the master “string-pullers” controlling BOTH (as IF there was really any substantive difference whatsoever) parties, sides, or factions (whichever term works best, here), does it REALLY make much difference when the program of “GLOBALISM” still proceeds ahead, as planned, regardless how fast or how slow its progress? This is very much like being presented with the choice of what color chains shall you willingly accept? There is NEVER any mention of, “WHY are ANY chains necessary nor warranted”? TRUE Freedom is NOT for sale, at ANY price!

We, The People are supposed to be the guarantors of our liberties and freedoms.

Our Nation’s Original Founders had those thoughts and beliefs, centuries ago. They communicated those beliefs and rationales through their various memoirs, speeches, and through the various charters they formed. They perfectly understood the absolute need for an informed and very involved public, when it came to safeguarding the very rights, freedoms, and liberties they themselves held so dear and inviolate. They understood the historic fact that governments, of every stripe, color, and type could easily devolve into tyranny and despotism, if left to their own devices, because of a disinterested, uninvolved People. Why “vote” for more slavery, more taxes, less freedom, fewer choices, more war, and more death? ? ? Why even vote at all, if you are not even going to accept that “voting” is only A PART OF YOUR “CIVIC DUTY”? The rest of these “civic duties” should also include; constantly keeping your officials accountable to the Rule of Law (that is, the “Common Law”, NOT fiat law), reminding them of their duties towards their fellow countrymen in favor over their own personal interests, honor and keep their solemn oaths – even “campaign promises”, to foster the enshrined principles of “Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness” that helped to make this Nation great, and guard against tyranny in even the smallest crevices of society. – If WE are NOT actively doing these things, as we go about our daily lives, then we are giving our consent to being controlled (“governed”) by the whims of those in power.

Thus, this past “election” season should be as a reminder to us all, to not let ourselves be distracted from our TRUE responsibilities: “Guaranteeing our own freedoms and liberties, as well as those of others, by keeping constant vigil, even when things get chaotic. These are NOT responsibilities to be so easily handed over to those in
positions of authority and public trust!

That includes toward the future President of our Nation, and beyond.

Be smart, America! Be wise, be wary, be vigilant, and be ever watchful, in safeguarding our own freedoms and liberties, because the tyrants ever labor, through day and night, to devise new ways, to enslave us all, and keep us ignorant of the fact! – PLEASE, don’t go back to sleep, now! Just because the “elections” are over, and “the game” is on the T.V., does NOT mean it is time to relax, and let the “system” do its thing! Too many times, do our “elections” end up being like “beauty pageants” and “who can out swing whom” trials, instead of really getting down to actual solutions and reforming or abolishing bad policy. This political pendulum swinging of “left-and-right-and-back-again” has done much to confuse and distract from the most pressing issues: Our National Pride, Our economic viability, The alienation of Our Individual AND Collective Natural Rights, and most of all – Getting the U.S.A. OUT of the business of being the “world’s policeman”. These are just a few areas to start the changes for the better, but we really need to start somewhere. Those changes need to be because of all of us, and our commitment to BEING that change. We can not trust our destinies to those in office, without our being ever-so-watchful of them.

WE need to stay alert, in order to stay alive, or we WILL lose everything, and not even know it happened!

– Rev. Dragon’s Eye


Now, here we are, Wed/May 6th, 2020,

  • We have even MORE citizens in the “poor -house”, while the big-tech companies get to import an almost endless supply of cheaper foreign labor – all because they are supposedly “more skilled” than Americans,
  • We have MORE medical cartelization and corruption, which has lead to these private enterprises being able to profit from their pushing of very toxic “medicines” upon us all, while destroying the last amount of knowledge on the better, more-natural medicines,
  • We have MORE political and economic cronyism – especially in Washington DC, where our politicians and other government employees are even allowed to be awarded patents – which were originally developed and funded by taxpayer’s money,
  • We have MORE worries of possible wars with other countries, nations, etc, which goes right in line with a very aggressive “foreign policy” (“Speak softly, but carry a big stick!“),
  • We are MORE likely to see government-mandated “health-care” treatments, etc, as if “Obamacare” was not already expensive and destructive enough, it was still never completely fixed nor repealed – but – virtually EXPANDED (complete with the “End of Life Care” protocols, but NOT any Life-Saving therapies!),
  • We have even FEWER legal and other lawful protections of our Rights, Freedoms, and Liberties, the “police-state” mentality has never gone away – only intensified with this BS “pandemic” – Authoritarianism on steroids, folks,
  • We have MORE mass-migration inbound into the USA, all so that the “investors” can make bigger profits, even in one of the latest BLOOMBERG articles – gleefully admitted, and cheered on,
  • We have even FAR MORE political and ideological censorship, under the rubric of “fake news”, “disinfo”, and other bland excuses to keep out opposing viewpoints,
  • We even less say-so over the contents of our food (IE: The Pro-GMO lobby has a wide open door to do whatever they want, without accountability),
  • We are even CLOSER to the realization of mass-mandated vaccination, all with hurriedly-developed, inadequately tested and certified “vaccines”, that We The People will not be able to sue against, or even opt-out of,
  • We are STILL waiting for the Clintons and their fellow cronies to be publicly brought up on charges, and indicted for the many voluminous crimes against America and humanity itself,
  • We are STILL seeing more inherent, “deep-state swamp-creatures” running our nation (and its states) full gallop into a world-wide totalitarian hellhole, and the current “president” is appearing to be more “onboard” with this trend – with each and every executive order, and each and every salacious and treasonous bill he signs,

So yeah,

I’m very, VERY bitchy about the whole mess, and for very, VERY good, personal reasons to be so outraged. Each and every US Military veteran should be also, because Our Oath to uphold, defend, and protect under the Constitution of the United States, and of the several States – DID NOT have an expiration date! Plus, that oath covered both enemies foreign and DOMESTIC.

Here we are, nearly four years later (after the previous presidential election), and just WHERE and HOW have we ended up, as a nation? ? ? ARE we any freer and more liberated than before? ARE we really doing better economically and financially (and we’re NOT talking anything about the biggest fraud of a “stock market” either!) ? CAN we truly look into our children’s eyes and honestly tell them “We are leaving them a world better than how we found it“? ARE we truly in any way better off, in considerations towards world peace? ARE we even sure that we are safer than we were “yesterday”?

I don’t know about anyone else, but right now – I feel even LESS SAFE in my home Nation, when I know Our Rights, Freedoms, and Liberties seem to mean so little to most – as they would so callously trade them away – for an “ounce of safety”!

The Honorable Mr. Benjamin Franklin’s prophetic warning has come home to roost, along with the cockerels:

– “For those who would trade a little liberty, for a little security,
Deserve and soon shall have neither!

 

Danger!: Compromising towards Nothing.


As of a bit earlier this afternoon,

Heard one fellow citizen reading an article from our local newspaper. It was the “planned step-by-step re-opening of our local community”. It seemed that everyone was very open, and even gladly accepting the fact that we were finally going to “re-open”, BUT – NO ONE seemed the least bit sensitive to the idea that this was all going to be “conditional”, “step-by-step”, and filled with “compromises”! I am venturing a wild guess that this will also put an end to all protests as well? Being that most people will feel that the reins have been loosened enough, to provide some comfort of “fresh air” – AND – perhaps even feel “victorious” for “surviving” the many inconveniences, while during the IMPOSED lock-downs and mass-quarantines? Is THIS how such “wars”, both declared and “not-so-loudly declared”, are fought and won? ? ? Are they still considered victories, even though the oft-ignored casualties, the Truth; Natural Rights; Freedoms; Liberty; and Self-Determination – are weakened, or altogether lost upon the “altar of public safety”? ? ?

It is already (or should be) common knowledge that Human Nature seeks the benefit of comfort and perceived safety. This is a common attribute that is most commonly evident with the social (or “gregarious”) species known in this world. It is that “wanting to fit in and be part of the group” mentality, that defines virtually any social species. It can be a great strength in times of need and peril, but it can also be a huge vulnerability and (when “weaponized”) wield a powerful influence upon the society which is “governed” as such. The “strong-willed”, naturally seek to greaten this degree of power and control over the “herd”, and all members within it. Whereas in the wilds, this was necessary to ensure the survival of the species, by the strong-willed asserting their dominance (and even battling for dominance) so as to become the most procreative of their kind. – This supported the Natural Law of “Survival of the Fittest”, which not only applied to physical strength, but in some species – it was more of a mental-strength, through cunning, cleverness, and strength of will. These traits served their purpose well in the Natural world, under the various “Laws of Tooth and Claw”.

So, what makes the Human species any different, from any other non-Human species?

Well,

To the observant and sentient of Mind, as well as logical in thinking, The Human (aka: Homo sapiens) came to prominence, and rose to the state of Mind and Being by progression of skills, understanding, and deeply-ingrained and intricate “problem-solving” abilities. He became a more sentient Being, by becoming more aware of his abilities, and how he could change various aspects of his environment. He could learn to plan, organize, resolve what were once perplexing problems, and change the way certain solutions could be more efficiently and effectively applied to differing situations. He became more methodical, and more adaptable to whatever environment and/or other situations he may find himself. Humans became a more calculating, creative, and versatile species, as individuals and as loose-knit groups, which changed much of how human beings survive, flourish, and even prosper, and do it all well.

With the advent of farming (believe it or not, “farm” and “farming” are derived from “pharma” and “pharmacopoeia” – as being derived from plants, etc – the first such living things being cultivated/domesticated by humans), many things about the human social condition (and the invisible “social contract”) changed.  Now, survival was more targeted to the individual’s (and their families’) own labors and efforts. If a village was mostly of households who raised their own food, then there was actually less need of strong-willed leadership to ensure the survival of the society. Plus, with farming and early agriculture in general, this also meant that food supplies and basic needs, were a bit more predictable and manageable, through prior planning and successful methodology. This also meant a certain amount of time to be dedicated to tending the farm, and the familial division of labor. (This is also why “farm-families” were traditionally fairly large, and may have even housed multiple generations of the family on the same land.) So the social hierarchy in these settings, was often based on age of seniority (because the older members were thought to be experienced enough to have accumulated much wisdom and knowledge).

So what does this have to do with Our Rights, Freedoms, and Liberties now?

For the impatient,

We can “cut to the meat and potatoes” of the matter, fairly easily, by reference of where our basic Western Traditions and Culture originated from. The basic premise of “Individualism” has strong roots to the early Northern European customs and traditions, as per before the expansion of the various empires (like Rome, and later Byzantine), and the later Christianization of the European Peoples.

Because most of the villages and very small “townships” and such, were primarily farming and agricultural type societies, they were also very insular in their social fabric. Whereas families from different households may meet on several specific occasions, perhaps even to barter and trade excesses of produce, for those items or produce that the household(s) were needing more of. This was all done face to face, rather than through a mercantile or “middle-man”, because the parties to the exchange agreed upon the “acceptable value” of the goods upon the act of trade. There was no need to mention anything about “money”, or any other system of valuation.

As to dealing with injurious acts, whether be they from deceit, or basic negligence, the towns people would gather around the eldest members of their community, would be considered to act as “judges” or arbiters to any disagreement or situation similar. Generally, it was these elders, by virtue of great age and the consistent evidence of wisdom in problem-solving, who were empowered to solve disputes. Usually, such disputes and disagreements were calmly discussed and resolved, with nary a drop of blood ever being shed. This was very important to maintain the peaceful coexistence of all members of the community, as ALL able-bodied members were also part of the defense and protection of the village as a whole. You might think of this a form of “pure democracy”, even though individual rights and freedoms were actually the most basic part of these communities. After all, in these early times, the village elders were not looked upon so much as “leaders” of everyday decision-making, but leaders-in-wisdom and quite knowledgeable and experienced. The early system of justice that was put in place for the newly-formed American Colonies (and later, The “United States”), was based very much from the early Norse, Viking, Nordic systems – because it was considered to be the most fair, and most equitable system of righting wrongs and other problems, without the need for excessive use of force by those charged with arbitration and pronouncement of resolutions. – It was also a system based on “Innocence, until Guilt is Proven – Beyond all reasonable doubt“.

Another very important aspect of the early village (very simple and limited government), was the fact that whereas the able-bodied (usually men, because of their physical strength and agility) cooperated to the defense of the entire community when in times of need, or threatened by an external enemy or adversary, the role of personal, individual safety was an individual’s own responsibility – because the able-bodied were capable and expected to defend their own families and homes, unless additional help was obviously needed or wanted. Again, the choice was left up to the individual, as only the individual knew what was best for himself and all he was responsible for. This was also a partial “spin-off” from the idea of the “insular nature” of existence in those times. The peoples’ loyalties were first – for their families, and THEN – for others in their community.

This may also explain why the West has only seen a few existing empires, only after much bloodshed and cost to BOTH sides of those wars. It also may help to explain why it took literally many centuries, to finally conquer the “Spirit of Individualism” in much of the West, as was not so common a resistance in much elsewhere in the world. Many other regions of the world have seen dynasties after dynasties, kingdoms after kingdoms, and/or some form of authoritarianism – giving way to yet another form of authoritarianism. A people who have not or never known of nor practiced freedom and individuality’s part in freedom and liberty, would be expected to not have any historical frame of reference, to the ideals of individuality and freedom. Most from those “serially-occupied” areas have no clue nor idea what those concepts are!

Now, anyone understanding his/her knowledge of human history (and the history of great human tragedies),

And this be assumed that they have learned from good, accurate sources and early texts and books (before the great changes in our public education systems, that is) – would provide a basic understanding on the “rise and fall of the great civilizations“, and WHY they happened the way they happened, and what effects those events have upon today’s events.

– “For those who would trade a little liberty,
  For a little security,
  Deserve and soon will have neither!

Benjamin Franklin, Early Statesman and Author

In understanding the rise and fall of civilizations (as our Nations Original Founders understood from their knowledge of human history), one must understand how those civilizations started. Many of them started as “free societies”, or something very similar in characteristics therefrom. The “march to despotism and tyranny” usually did not happen overnight, for it did – the people would rise up and challenge the authority of those despotic systems of government, and the rule of the tyrant(s) would be very short-lived. So, the “slow and easy approach” was more commonly employed. This was a factor in the eventual downfall of the early Greek Republics or “city-states”, before eventually being absorbed into the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire also started originally as loosely “confederated” group of “city-states”, where the arts and creative expression rose to their peak (much the same as in Ancient Greece). The earlier, freer mode of government was least restrictive and least intrusive upon individuals’ lives. Naturally, the finest and greatest of the arts, innovation, and industry (as well as advanced higher-learning) rose to their greatest levels during these times. There was also very little need for militarism (except to fill the need to protect the communities from known external threats).

As there became more pressure (both political, and perhaps economic) evident to these cultures, there were growing calls for more governmental decision-making. Naturally, these calls for more power entailed “selling” the idea to the people as “necessary” and “beneficial” to all. Of course, these calls for more centralized authority, would be championed and pushed by those who stood to benefit in some way, be it economically, politically, or even out of a base, personal “desire” for more power. Times of crises and any other “national cause for concern”, routinely fit the bill as a “means to an end”. Hence the Latin phrase, “Qui Bono” – “WHO BENEFITS?”.

The creativity of a cunning and intelligent despot may know of NO end or limits, as to what he/she will try, and employ in order to “scare” the general public into accepting his/her “solutions” to address the crisis. This may (and often does) entail the rewriting of the current laws (or “codes”) to further empower the despotic regime. These “emergency measures”, over time, become more palatable to the people, and therefore more acceptable in day to day life. All the tyrant needs to, is constantly and consistently keep the threat of dire consequences of the existing threat alive and well, to justify the permanency of the emergency measures.

Sometimes, external threats, which may be real or imagined, are successfully used to further terrorize the people into accepting more controls and more authority being vested in the governing officials. Many other, lesser officials may be “bought” into following along, and plied with a certain amount of “greater authority” and/or financial rewards for their assistance in the power-grabbing. There may even be the need to hire foreign mercenaries or “agents”, to act as an impending threat to the people, by providing the pretext (excuse) for enlarging the domestic and national “security forces (military power)” to “protect the nation from these (hired) threats“. Remember: For these kinds of predatory systems to become successful, and long lasting enough – They must slowly progress, so as to raise as little alarm to the people as possible.

This is what some can rightly call: “Slow-poisoning” of the government system. I think of it more as a “growing cancer”, myself – as this is a very accurate analogy, to describe its slow-moving process. If there is evidence of some resistance among the people to this growing authoritarian rule, the tyrant may employ distractionary “non-events” to keep the peoples’ attention focused on the distraction itself. Even “targeted blaming” of resistant individuals would be employed as responsible for the current problems and woes of society. The resistance movements may even be proclaimed to be a danger to the security and well-being of the country and its inhabitants. Such behaviors and acts may even include blaming the resistance as being aligned with the country’s enemies, and even traitors. It is all part of the “big game”, wherefore the tyrant(s) use these devices, based on fear and panic, to rally the masses to their causes.

“Fear” is indeed a most powerful “tool” in the hands of a tyrant, and fear is also capable of the greatest destruction in its wake!

So, HOW do we identify when there are moves towards greater power for the rulers?

Identifying a trend towards the growth of tyranny and despotism, requires a very solid understanding of human history, and past examples of the destruction of civilizations – at the hands of tyrants. It also requires the rational, critical thinking skills of a calm mind, because a fearful, panicky mind is kept distracted and too “preoccupied” to think clearly and rationally. If one is observant, and has good enough memory to recall “how things were” in his/her earlier days, then one already has a major foundation of experience and knowledge of what is currently happening, that greatly changes the government’s relationship to the governed. It also requires one to be bold and courageous enough to stand up for the truth, even when lies, deceit, and trickery (in all their forms) become the most popular. Understanding the “Human condition” becomes most important, and most revealing as to how the people can be viewed through the eyes of a tyrant, AND what particular “weaknesses” can be exploited for the purposes of the tyrant. Simply “being a Human”, of self-reliance and a free-thinker, generally qualifies well enough (even though, “professionals” and academic scholars may claim that degrees and accreditation, are what it takes to be an “authority” on the subject) to be at least partially knowledgeable of “the human personality-weaknesses”.

“Fear plays havoc with reason, and clouds the mind of clear, critical thinking.”

One easy to identify way that tyrants use to accrue more political/social power, is by insisting that “We” need to sacrifice some of our “liberty” or freedom, in order to feel safer (and the tyrant always seems to have a solution, dependent on “Our” compliance). This especially includes various devices of “national crisis” (and lately, a “global crisis”) to continue to elicit the feelings of fear and angst among the people. Their process is even “scientifically-designed” for effect, based on past “social-experiments” and their results! So, the successful tyrant will also be very knowledgeable of human history too (while denying the availability of such knowledge to the masses).

“He who forgets history, is doomed to repeat it!”

Benjamin Franklin, Early Statesman and Author

Tyrants usually will have a (useful) crisis develop at a specific time or date, which calls for extreme measure that are used to impose limits on the rights and freedoms of the people. Then, when the crisis or exigency is supposedly lessened or resolved (which is usually never completely), some of the curtailment of rights and freedoms may be eased, but usually never totally repealed! This is akin to “jump forward three feet, then back off by one foot”. This is the gradual step-by-step advancement approach. It is proven to be a very effective means of increasing the political power of authority, for the rulers (be they “elected”, appointed, or other – more occult personalities [“Wizard of Oz“-type leadership] in the shadows). Usually, this method also involves “conditions” and “compromises” to those loosening of “restrictions” on individuality and individual activity. Some of the measures of the newly-assigned/designated/asserted authority are NEVER repealed, but remain hidden within the illusion of the “new normal”, that is constantly asserted as a “must-have” necessity. This is a most devious form of “compromise”, that does eventually lead to a vast reduction in the respect for individual rights, freedoms, and liberties. It is also the most insidious because these still-existent measures are often forgotten by the people, as they may not hear about them again – that is – until the next “public emergency”, when such measures have been made more acceptable to the people. This is very much apropos to: “The Frog in the Pan of Water: Slow boil, to its death!


 

Today, Apr 28th, 2020,

In these United States of America,

We are facing EXACTLY this scenario, and political posturing for greater centralized political power, not unheard of from scholars of accurate human history! This “pandemic” has provided all the features of a successful political power-grab to the likes unseen or heard of in the Common Era of humanity. (This by MY opinion. Others’ may differ.) The main difference from what I learned from my early history studies: THIS program is GLOBAL, and pits the Natural Rights, Freedoms, Liberties, and the whole of American and Western Culture and Values into the cross-hairs of the growing global tyranny. It was only until February of this year (2020), that our way of life, and the security of individualism seemed unfazed, and Life seemed to look bright and hopeful. NOW, look where we are at.

After only about two-to-two-and-a-half months (mid-Feb to nearly May – 2020) of imposed lock-downs, “social-distancing”, and mass-quarantines (of even the healthy, not just the sick and vulnerable), together with the constant fever-pitch fear and panic – doom-and-gloom political mind-games, have we progressed any further towards a freer society? OR – are we now even more vulnerable, in a huge number of ways, than we were before?

Just as in past, long-since-now-defunct civilizations (more exactly, “empires”), we are seeing the advancement of tyranny – through increased political power and authoritarianism – masquerading under the guise of an “emergency” (pandemic, or “PLAN-demic” as some refer to it), by seeking to retain more social-control measures on the books (for future emergencies, of course!), while SLOOOOOWWWLY rolling back only some of the new control measures that were exercised by the national and STATE governments during this “crisis”. The problem is, the damage has already been done!

What blows my mind, beyond all comprehension, is that my attempts to educate fellow citizens to the absolute fraud, that has been so cruelly inflicted on much of the world’s people, was all based on exaggerations and outright LIES and deceit – has been met with anger, hostility, and total enmity towards me, and my message of truth. Just from my own local area, it seems that nine of out ten people were totally un-receptive to the message of truth. Many claiming that I am “being all negative”, with some even yelling for me to “SHUT-UP!” – Hmmm! So forget about my “Freedom of speech”, if they don’t like the message, but it’s all normal and okay to be practically, psychologically bludgeoned, daily, with news of fear, panic, and “you must accept this, that, or . . . whatever”, “all for your safety“.

I hate to admit it, I hate to state it, I hate the very thought of it – but . . .

“I sincerely believe that our cherished nation of Individual Rights, Freedom, Liberty, and The American Way are soon to be gone, and altogether forgotten – as of the year 2020!”

For the Dragon-Gods which I stand before, and so greatly weep and pine – in Their presence,

I HOPE and PRAY that I am wrong on this assessment! – I really do! – It would NOT be the “Dragon-Thing” to do. I served my (adopted) country with all the zeal and all the Love to (for what I genuinely thought to be) stand in defense of, against ALL enemies – foreign AND domestic! My Oath to protect the Rights, Freedoms, and Liberties this Great Nation was founded upon, NEVER HAD AN EXPIRATION DATE, NOR A “SUNSET” CLAUSE!

Please, see, sign, and share my petition on the US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES’ website with everyone you know, network with, follow, and in any other fashion associate with

– for the future of Our Nation: The United States of America, “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

If we don’t do the right things right NOW, we may NEVER get another chance to rescue and heal our great nation again! This is a NOW-OR-NEVER Moment. Do or Die, your choice!

 

A WELL-PLAYED HAND: HOW AMERICA (AND THE WORLD) HAVE BEEN FOOLED (Yet again).


After a weekend of deep thought and reflection,

I had to wake up and realize, once again, that I too, felt as if I also had a personal stake in the “election” of 2016. Though, I took a “wait-and-see” approach to the whole scene, I still felt pulled in to the festive look and feel of the moment. Then the proverbial “hang-over”, after the party, finally wears off, and the truth once again, shows THE reality.

To make things fairly simple and easy to comprehend: The election process, in MOST of the world’s governments and regimes, still falls firmly into place, under the control of those who have decided “election outcomes” long before the People become aware of WHO will become the next contenders. All our hopes, dreams, and many other desires, are well-known to those who are firmly in control of the world’s systems. These great and cunning wielders of power have had many years to perfect the art of illusion.

One thing that serves me very well when doing an “after-analysis” (or an “after-action review”, as the more military-minded may refer to it) of the whole process, and such things like “hotly-contested” events, like “elections”, and that is memory of past events, and how they played out. The “elections” of 2016 in the United States of America being NO EXCEPTION. When one can take a detached, dispassionate view of neutrality, towards such events, one often sees the sheer cunning and amazing amount of effort that went into crafting so convincing an illusion.

It should be plain as day to some, by now, that these “elections” are pure fantasy and only give the appearance, illution if you will, of any real choice. What is most amazing to me: Much of the “alternative media”, and other small “journalism” sites and organizations, have also fallen into the well-played illusion. Some of the alternative journalists, I used to trust in very much, have begun to show some of the amount of control exerted upon them. Certain sites and blogs, once use to report and showcase the truth about the controlled system of “elections”, and the political power-plays for control over public perception. We all love the idea of the “good guys” championing over the “bad guys”, but this also distracts from the very fact that BOTH sides are usually firmly under the control of the VERY SAME SYSTEM AND ITS MANAGERS! It does one very little good to “bet on a horse in the race, that is -against- the adversary’s interests, when it is that -adversary- who owns ALL the horses in the race!”

Let’s start examining this previous “election”, by going over some of the more interesting details that many may not notice.

Typically,

Our “elections” are often commonly-understood as “voting for the lesser of two evils”.

The problem with this theory is, if we are STILL voting for an evil, what are we really accomplishing? No matter what we do, “evil” still wins, whether a little, or a lot! Just as Mercury is toxic and deadly, whether given at the rate of 10uG (micro-grams) per day, or up to 10mG per day, the end result is – YOU WILL STILL END UP DEAD, BECAUSE MERCURY (AT EITHER OF THOSE RATES) IS STILL LETHAL! ! ! Yet, we are expected (and encouraged) to ignore that reality, when it is the “pushers” who stand to benefit in the end. All one needed to do, prior to some crafty changes in election-financing laws, was look at how each candidate’s campaign was either financed or supported.

An interesting observation here:

One candidate was already worth billions of U.S. dollars when he ran for office. The other chose to use many hidden sources of political funding, most of it outright illegal, to fund the campaign. The “billionaire” even played well, the idea of waving off the President’s normal salary schedule (a brilliant “hero” move for the gullible masses!) to look even more like he was “for the little guy”! Yet, no one thinks to question in HOW it was he was able to attain, and even maintain such levels of wealth and power, in a grossly corrupt and unbalanced world economy as we have now. There are many other innovative and entrepreneurial souls out there in the human side of the world, but so very few ever get to realize such status and wealth (usually, only after he/she has also sold out on principles and ethics). PLUS, if such wealth is based solely upon the value of a controlled currency, or based solely on “paper”, then such wealth is unstable and can soon be worthless overnight, if deemed so by those who control the world economy and its basis of value! This has been the sheer weakness behind debt-based economies, and “monetized debt” (to use the bankers’ own parlance) for as many centuries that such economic models have been practiced. So, would you STILL trust such an individual to stand against a system, in which his own wealth is dependent upon? One who is worth so much in “paper”, is not likely to challenge the power of those who control the value of his “paper”. – Sounds like the perfect puppet, to install into a position of power, and “public trust”!

Now, an old adage that should be resurfacing on account of this well-played illusion-of-choice, called the “Election of 2016”:

The most believable lies, always incorporate large amounts of the truth. ”

Could this also be said of a well-crafted illusion, like the “illusion of choice”? If Candidate “A” was a devout Communist, and Candidate “B” was lesser a Communist, but more of a “light Socialist”, yet NEITHER truly supported the Individual’s right of choice, have we really gained anything by voting for “the lesser of two evils” when in what is supposed to be a “Representative Republic”? If Candidate “A” was for MORE government intervention and involvement in personal matters, while Candidate “B” was for MORE rights for big-business and more decision-making BY the executives of big-business, yet – the “little guy” is STILL left without any choice in the matter as to he/she would live, and what rights he/she can expect to enjoy? – Do the People still win in some way, or is that simply another illusion of “choice”, crafted by a convincing “second-hand reality” we call “elections”?

Now, let’s get to the bottom of this scheme, and how it has worked so well, year after year after year.

The globalists know very well how angry the world’s People are, with the disintegrating quality of life, the unfairness of the “system” and its players’ treatment of the People, the constant state of warfare and endless destruction of life and of the People’s lands. The globalists know that the People are getting combative, because they are becoming much better informed as to what is going on, and how corrupt and CRIMINAL this “world system” is. The globalists know that their power is being openly challenged by an ever-increasing number of very unhappy People. They know that the “world wide web” has become an exceptional tool and learning resource for up-to-the-minute updated info on what is happening around the world. The globalists know that they are having to change tactics, and become more innovative in exerting their power over the People of this world. They are also having to devise new ways of hiding the mechanisms of their control. – I very seriously doubt that these globalists are really in any state of panic (another well-performed public image) over their control system being actively challenged. They have usually been several steps ahead of the rest of humanity. With the incredible rise in surveillance technologies, and how to more-discreetly employ them, they are constantly knowledgeable on the latest trends in human behavior, and the general attitudes of the human population.

Therefore,

Having “elections” step up the excitement, create the “hopeful” atmosphere, and various other cunning forms of emotional-manipulations, these globalists have once again shown how masterful they are, at controlling the human population through constant manipulation. This being very much the part in the Grand Illusion, that very aware folks like Jon Rappoport, Dr. Ron Paul, and a few others have thought of as “The Matrix”. (This, in reference to the movie mini-series by that name.) – The problem is, if you partook of this shameful, illusion-of-choice “election” of 2016 (or many previous ones) without realizing the falsehoods behind them, did you REALLY take the “Red Pill”??? – Is taking any of these proverbial “Pills”, doing any good?

Do any of you even remember, let alone KNOW, that Dr. Ron Paul ran for President of the United States, three times, and THREE TIMES, the “media” did not even acknowledge his candidacy until late in the game? The media even refused to acknowledge Dr. Paul’s stunning victories in the various “straw-polls”, leading up to the primaries. Yet, Mr. Donald Trump was supposedly so hated for his “anti-establishment” talking-points and rhetoric, that the media spent countless hours on negative publicity of him and his campaign (think: “FREE-PUBLICITY”)!?!? – What’s more, the “seismic shift” of the “election” exit polls? ? ? – Something fishy here, perhaps? ? ?

Then,

The usual public reaction upon “reporting” the final exit poll results! – That was the masterpiece of this wonderful illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”. What’s more, EVEN much of the “alternative media” got behind the wheel in helping to steer public opinion towards “the underdog candidate”! ! ! – PURE BRILLIANCE of executing a well-played, well-scripted illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”! – Does this not smell of something funny to you? ? ? Does this not have a familiar ring, from events of past “elections”? ? ? Do you not feel like you were played for fools, as I did for even a short time? ? ?

Dr. Ron Paul nailed it on the head, on his website several months ago: “America may be in for a big disappointment come election day.” – NICE, Dr. Paul! I’d say YOU nailed it right on the head!

From my taking a “wait-and-see” attitude, and “giving the Donald a chance”, has served me well to cause me to “back up, and regroup”, and really SEE the Big Game as it has been played upon America AND the world. Just seeing some of the earliest choices for cabinet-level positions, has had me very concerned at what these united states of America face after Inauguration Day of 2017! This Nationalists’ “Dream Team”, also looks more like a “War-Hawks’ Dream Team”, a “Corporatists’ Dream Team”, a “Privatizationists’ Dream Team”, and “More Corporate-Welfare Dream Team”, an “Israel-Firster Dream Team”, and a “Facists’ Dream Team”! – Each and every future “appointment”, has some serious history behind him/her, and none of it very good for this “Land of The Free, Home of The Brave”!

Think about it for a moment. Where does John Bolton fit in, when it comes to the grand game? How about Frank Gaffney? What about William Kristol? So far, ALL THREE of these folks are part of the list of authors of the dreaded “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: A Project for the New American Century”, published on the AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE’s (A.E.I.) website! ! ! – These three are pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalists! – Is THAT the sort of people we, as a Nation, want deciding policy for the next four or even eight years? ? ? Then, we have Senator Jeff Sessions, a definite pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalist type! Then, *** GASP!!! ***, we have Ingrid Newkirk as a ‘possible’ cabinet-level pick? I seriously hope not! She is one of those who wishes to get government to outlaw any and all forms of human interaction with ANY non-human animals! This EVEN GOES FOR COMPANION ANIMALS AND ANY THERAPY WHICH INVOLVES HUMAN AND ANIMAL INTERACTION! Nevermind that some of today’s brighter areas of modern medicine, has seen animal-based human therapy as exceptionally beneficial and healing (we are talking physical, emotional, and social therapies, where (non-human) animals play a very big part in the healing process). Yet, the folks like Ms. Newkirk, many members of P.E.T.A., and EVEN the infamously corrupt A.S.P.C.A. see ANY human-and-animal interaction as detrimental to the (non-human) animals, and a violation of the (non-human) animals’ rights! As to Ret. Lt.Gen. Michael Flynn, being billed as “anti-ISIS”, I have major concerns of him also being very pro-war, with some neo-con slant. Call me paranoid, but the fact does not change that we are STILL talking “Washington insiders” making up a considerable portion of what is shaping up to be the next administration. As to Mike Pompeo, I am very troubled on his continued support of the high-tech surveillance “police-state” that we are having to endure now. It was already bad enough that the Obama Administration saw to it, that the “surveillance state” continued to grow, far beyond any reasonable boundary necessary for “national security”. So, Mr. Pompeo’s stance on this issue has me seriously concerned if the United States of America will ever get to enjoy the right of privacy again. I am still out looking for more info on Mr. Steve Bannon. I have not been too impressed with Breitbart “News”, over the years, and especially with its subtle, but noticeable “neo-con” slanted view of the issues. It seems that when Andrew Breitbart (the site’s founder) was murdered (as I see it), his legacy “news” organization greatly changed in its way of reporting. Either way, it looks like another set-up upon America in the making!

I’d hate to be the one to say it, folks but . . .

– “AMERICA, I THINK WE HAVE BEEN *NEO*-CONNED, ONCE AGAIN!”

It makes NO DIFFERENCE to simply trade in one globalist puppet for another! Something that I really wish the “alternative media” would rather have not forgotten, in this frenzied “cult-of-personality” that occurred this last “election” season (as has been the case in many previous “election” seasons). No matter which direction the exit-poll results were swayed, the “Matrix” is still the ultimate winner, NOT the People! Time to wake up, People. If your “vote” really meant anything, if your desire for changes for the better was a real passion, if your heart really was set on making life better, not only here in America, but the around the world in general, YOU would be an active player in that process of change! Our “officials”, in their present capacity, and in the fact that they are still “human”, and prone to those very same human tendencies of being corruptible, should NOT be the ones to be held responsible for those changes YOU seek. YOU, ME, and all individual human beings should be an active part of the process of those changes. So long as we continue to trust others to do FOR us, that which WE should be doing on our own, we will continue to be betrayed by those who have expertly USED our feelings and emotions against us, and used our political processes as a distraction from our REAL responsibilities.

When one begins to fully understand the concept of “controlled-opposition”, and one begins to see controlled “elections” (and the media-controlled selection of ‘candidates’ to parade before the people), one can finally come to realize how PHONY the whole “election” process really is! ! ! – This is also a world-wide program. When we have the proverbial “left” on the one side, and the proverbial “right” (or, supposed “alt-right” by the controlled leftists) on the other, and we have the master “string-pullers” controlling BOTH (as IF there was really any substantive difference whatsoever) parties, sides, or factions (whichever term works best, here), does it REALLY make much difference when the program of “GLOBALISM” still proceeds ahead, as planned, regardless how fast or how slow its progress? This is very much like being presented with the choice of what color chains shall you willingly accept? There is NEVER any mention of, “WHY are ANY chains necessary nor warranted”? TRUE Freedom is NOT for sale, at ANY price!

We, The People are supposed to be the guarantors of our liberties and freedoms.

Our Nation’s Original Founders had those thoughts and beliefs, centuries ago. They communicated those beliefs and rationales through their various memoirs, speeches, and through the various charters they formed. They perfectly understood the absolute need for an informed and very involved public, when it came to safeguarding the very rights, freedoms, and liberties they themselves held so dear and inviolate. They understood the historic fact that governments, of every stripe, color, and type could easily devolve into tyranny and despotism, if left to their own devices, because of a disinterested, uninvolved People. Why “vote” for more slavery, more taxes, less freedom, fewer choices, more war, and more death? ? ? Why even vote at all, if you are not even going to accept that “voting” is only A PART OF YOUR “CIVIC DUTY”? The rest of these “civic duties” should also include; constantly keeping your officials accountable to the Rule of Law (that is, the “Common Law”, NOT fiat law), reminding them of their duties towards their fellow countrymen in favor over their own personal interests, honor and keep their solemn oaths – even “campaign promises”, to foster the enshrined principles of “Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness” that helped to make this Nation great, and guard against tyranny in even the smallest crevices of society. – If WE are NOT actively doing these things, as we go about our daily lives, then we are giving our consent to being controlled (“governed”) by the whims of those in power.

Thus, this past “election” season should be as a reminder to us all, to not let ourselves be distracted from our TRUE responsibilities: “Guaranteeing our own freedoms and liberties, as well as those of others, by keeping constant vigil, even when things get chaotic. These are NOT responsibilities to be so easily handed over to those in
positions of authority and public trust!

That includes toward the future President of our Nation, and beyond.

Be smart, America! Be wise, be wary, be vigilant, and be ever watchful, in safeguarding our own freedoms and liberties, because the tyrants ever labor, through day and night, to devise new ways, to enslave us all, and keep us ignorant of the fact! – PLEASE, don’t go back to sleep, now! Just because the “elections” are over, and “the game” is on the T.V., does NOT mean it is time to relax, and let the “system” do its thing! Too many times, do our “elections” end up being like “beauty pageants” and “who can out swing whom” trials, instead of really getting down to actual solutions and reforming or abolishing bad policy. This political pendulum swinging of “left-and-right-and-back-again” has done much to confuse and distract from the most pressing issues: Our National Pride, Our economic viability, The alienation of Our Individual AND Collective Natural Rights, and most of all – Getting the U.S.A. OUT of the business of being the “world’s policeman”. These are just a few areas to start the changes for the better, but we really need to start somewhere. Those changes need to be because of all of us, and our commitment to BEING that change. We can not trust our destinies to those in office, without our being ever-so-watchful of them.

WE need to stay alert, in order to stay alive, or we WILL lose everything, and not even know it happened!

OMG! The “Trump-Haters” Abound, And Not a Thing To Credit The Elections.


 Oh boy! Two days after the election results are finalized, and WHOA! This mis-info, dis-info, and every type of psychological manipulation ever imaged is being played out in these united states.

I did not see this much hatred with the loss of Albert Gore’s run.

Did not see this much hatred with James E. Carter’s loss of s second-term bid.

Did not see this much hatred with George Herbert Walker Bush’s bid for a second-term.

WTF, boys and girls!!!

Have we truly lost all sense of reason and dignity, that we have folks even vowing to to work against the new President-Elect – EVEN by “Republican” members of BOTH Houses of Congress?!?!?

What’s more,

What about all the stupid, asinine death threats – all over an election result? – I even got a good look at the election results map of the united states. Ya know, the one that is color-coded as in Red for “conservative” (or Republican) and Blue for “liberal” (Democrat)? ? ? – Seems pretty clear cut-and-dried to me! A majority of America’s People (to include many African-Americans, Hispanics, and others) have voted in droves in the hopes for REAL CHANGE! The election results could be given as a sign that “America is FED-UP with the sour direction this once harmonious country has been heading, for at LEAST (28) twenty-eight years!” The past “leadership” has been leading us all down the drain, and into absolute despotism.

This election result was made possible by enough People saying, “We are SICK and TIRED of going nowhere but DOWN!”

And now,

The “other party’s” favorites (mainly, ones who have benefited most from all the hand-outs, paid for by OTHER PEOPLE’s MONEY) are fearing the absolute worst, by – behaving their worst! – Such sick, twisted, demented, and immature children, who need to grow up and start seriously thinking, WHAT it is that will help this Nation heal from the wounds of the past (and some, not-too-distant past), and HOW “WE” (together), can make this country a proud place to live in again. (George Soro’s, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, et al – need NOT apply!)

As I said before,

I am not for counting this as a full victory yet.

Mr. Trump, You will have to prove to me, and many others, that WE, THE PEOPLE, placed our faith and confidence in the right Being, for the job as President of the United States. I would have personally trusted Dr. Jill Stein a little more, but I am sooo relieved that the Bush-Clinton Dynasty may FINALLY be done, and on the way out!

BTW, America:

Just because you voted, and your vote just happened to be one of the winning side,

Does NOT mean your (collectively “OUR”) responsibilities are over and done with! The VOTE, is only the first step, from a series of steps, to helping revitalize our great Nation. Our “collective homework” begins by making sure the reasons for our votes are honored, respected, and OBEYED. We, The People are supposed to be the guarantors of our freedoms and liberties. The “elected” are supposed to support that which We, The People have ordained, in line and thinking of the original intent of these United States of America, and the reasons of its founding!

In other words,

DO NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP AND FORGET YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES! WE, need to make damned sure that our “votes” were not in vain.

Thank you, and good day!

The Roar Heard ‘Round The World.


Well, this year’s election came and went, and oh WOW, what of the “fireworks” that emanated!

I will not be celebrating yet, because I still need to see action, that will prove whether or not, U.S.A. truly did have a “choice”. Have seen many different instances of the various campaign promises and “oaths”, and have been oft disappointed at the REALITY of what became of those lofty-sounding promises. We should all know that the average life-expectancy of a campaign promise, is good until “election day” is over. A sad, but oft repeated fact of any entrenched political system.

So,

My plea to the new President-Elect,

Please be honorable, and truthfully honor the promises you made, publicly, to the very People (an apparent majority, to include much of the “minority” segments of the population) who placed their trust and confidence in you. Please be thoughtful of the fact that, the U.S.A. was once the kind of Nation, that fostered the political and business climate, that enabled you to succeed (and fail, a few times – only to “bounce back”, brilliantly) in achieving your dreams! We all would very much like to see the U.S.A. re-embrace those true, free and open, entrepreneurial market principles. The “American Dream” needs revitalizing, and rebirth. The corrupt, in our business circles, need to be reined in, and encouraged to support our domestic market, and labor force again. The corrosive “speculation markets” must also be reined in! They are what further the predatory, inflationary practices, that are destroying the U.S.A.’s global competitiveness.

Please see the Nation for its People, and the People of this Nation.

Our Nation, and its original confederated colonies (later, “Republics”), was born of a revolutionary idea: “That a Free People, can become a Great People, in a Great Land.” – This idea, STILL rings true, today. All the various “social-engineers” and “think tanks” have accomplished, is the dilution and outright destruction of the virtues that, though it was imperfect, set the stage and the evolution, of a Nation to become better than anything like it before; NOT out of racism, NOT out of class-ism, NOT from any “one-size-fits-all” political approach, but from the true drive to succeed, and share the benefits by our own choice, and actions, out of our genuine love and compassion for our Brothers and Sisters (human, and non-human). We do NOT need excessive regulation upon our lives! We do NOT need excessive taxation, to support those things and programs that actually weaken us! We do NOT need to throw our money away, to foreign nations and states, under the idea that we “need” to buy their friendship and allegiance (foreign aid)! We need to be able to help ourselves first, and then – at our personal option – help others who are also in need. Genuine charity speaks for itself, in the actions it is bestowed, rather than “commanded” by bureaucrats, who wish to picture themselves as “saviors of mankind“.

– “By their fruits, Ye shall Know Them.”

Please be as real, honest, and open – about being human, being REAL, and being “American”!

Though I may not be of legal (Constitutional) qualifications to ever “run for this office”, myself,

I will still support those, who support the truth and spiritual principles of the Constitution of the United States (of America) of 1787, and it being foundationed upon the Declaration of Independence of 1776, and its tenets. At least this, until a closer-to-perfect system of freedom, liberty, peace, love, and light be the basis of life for our wonderful Republic, and its many State-Republics.

Until then,

I will remain a casual observer, but a hopeful one! That is, until you have proven yourself to me, to be the REAL DEAL.

National Holidays We Are In Danger of Losing: The Typical Remaking of American Culture and Traditions.


As political-correctness pressures and media propagandizing are pushing us to adopt new “norms”, what is there left to salvage of the honorable moments of the history of the United States of America?

Establishing “standards” of what it is to be “normal”.

When personal choice becomes subjectivized and rationalized away, in favor of the “new normal”, what is there left, for the individual being to celebrate as part of his citizenship (also a thing becoming of the past)? The last twenty or so years have seen some astonishing changes and transformation from what many of us held as part of our traditions and culture. Many of these changes, not so positive and “inclusive” of all. We have also seen a radical re-interpretation of many of our laws and codes. Many of these changes, resulting in more outside interference and involvement of “government”, and less room for dissent.

We are also seeing, at mind-numbing and blinding speed, the chorus calls to rewrite many important parts of our history, both collective and individual, all because “we do not like those parts”. So, what ARE we to learn of our past history, and FROM our past history? If we are to neglect and ignore those parts that are unfavorable to us, then WHAT are we to learn and HOW are we to learn to not repeat those very same mistakes and tragedies? “He who forgets history, is doomed to repeat it!” (adlibbed, of course). Are we going down a road that is altogether to familiar to the aware, and totally unknown to the oblivious?

In order to examine the current state of affairs in this fashion,

We should look at the political pressures for changing, or altogether abolishing, several of our venerated, national holidays and celebrations.

1 ) Fourth of July – as opposed to “Independence Day“:

– Independence Day is (soon to be “was”) a celebration of the United States of America’s liberation from tyrannical rule of the English Crown. The British Empire was a force to reckoned with in the old world, along with its titan commercial interests like the British East-India Trading Company. Most of the colonial exploits of the British Empire were for not only expanding imperial influence, but also for more opportunities to “trade” with other nations (as well as the resulting exploitation of those populations by the mercantilists).

The exploitation of the American Colonists, over time, became so unbearable due to increasing taxation to the benefit of the empire and its friendly businesses. This tilted form of economy made it so that most of the individualist-minded business folk were adversly affected by these increased expenses, while the more “crown-friendly” businesses benefited handsomely. It was events like these, and the furthered oppressions against the colonists (burning of “unlicensed” printing houses, intentional disarming of the general populace, etc.), as well as the unrestrained power and unchecked authority of the British military, that became the rallying cry for independence from the British Empire. Repeated attempts for treaties and agreements for parity of the colonists were ignored, and often – ruthlessly oppressed with more stringent measures against the colonists. After a long and brutal war that saw the American Colonists as victorious of Britain, our fledgling nation’s existence was assured of a fresh start, and a hard-earned self-determination.

What amazes me these days, is the quiet but growing call to celebrate “Interdependence Day”, instead. This comes from those who blindly (or even arrogantly) support the concept of a “global citizen”, and further the destruction of the idea and institution of the “nation-state”. Even the various United Nations’ charters call all of the signatories, “State-Parties”. Just as today, most of the businesses poster-child “July 4th”, or “4th of July” on there banners, instead of the proper reason WHY July 4th is the specific date celebrated: INDEPENDENCE DAY.

So,

The subterfuge goes on.

2 ) Father’s Day (complete with all of the necessary distractions from the true purposes of honoring the “Father”).

This year, 2015, and even locally where I live, it has become plain as day just how much the concept of a “Father” having any importance in society, has been under constant attack! Most of the leverage for dismissing the role and importance of “Dad” in family matters, started with the World War II years. This was then followed, to great effect, by the 60’s “Sexual Revolution” and the resulting additional push for women’s rights (as under the auspices of Patria Ireland and Gloria Steinem, and their “National Organization for Women”).

Under the forced social currents of change, many of the men-exclusive institutions have been done away with. The “social-justice” workers have tirelessly fought with the political system for various changes, and done so with much noise and vigor in support of the causes. Among some of the feats, the removal and subsequent outlawing of men’s-only social clubs, bars, and virtually any other vestige of men-only activities and gatherings. Yet, there are plenty (if not over-represented) of women-only functions, social clubs, “sales”, publications, entertainment venues, etc.

From those times onward, the role of “Father” has been steadily chipped away and side-lined. All one has to do is pay close attention to much of passes for “entertainment” and even most of the commercials often portray the man (and sometimes as the father) as an incompetent boob, or even a totally clueless fool, while portraying the women as the ultra-smart problem-solver. This has succeeded, for several generations of young Americans, in painting “dad” as a fool and incapable of doing anything right. This has also made parenting effectively far more difficult for BOTH parents (mom and dad).

Then, let’s get to the example of what happened locally (Boise, Idaho):

It used to be, every Father’s Day – Sunday, that we would have the presence of all sorts of classic cars and hot-rods displayed along a designated, closed-off street all day. This was in the spirit of Father’s Day, and was typically a “tradition” put on by the local classic car enthusiast clubs. This year, again – 2015, the classic cars show was done the previous Saturday evening (which was too dark by that hour, for me to clearly-photograph any of the cars with my camera-phone, like I wanted too) instead! What also transpired that very same Saturday, the Gay-Pride March and Festival, the World Citizen Festival, and a few other smaller but well-promoted “festivals” – AT THE SAME TIME!!! – The Father’s Day occasion had to compete with other interests, all because it’s schedule was moved up to Saturday, instead of the traditional Sunday!

Well, I guess THAT was supposed to be a “Happy Father’s Day“? ! ? ! ?

3 ) Thanksgiving Day (even though it was originally observed on a different calendar day, it still stood for “giving thanks for all the things we have”).

Thanksgiving Day has many different counterparts throughout much of the world. The giving and expression of gratitude has been a very important part of many cultures, past and present. The Paleo-Pagans and other ancient cultures had their many different ways of expressing gratitude, and to whom and/or what they gave the praise to. One of the important effects of being grateful for those things we have, and for the ability to supply ourselves and others’ needs, is that we have a tendency of recognizing that such things are often hard-won and hard-earned. We are less-likely to waste and squander what we are grateful for!

The current political pressures seek to try to remove this part of our culture (as much of our hyper-commercialization has given us the “throw-away-society” that we have today) and have even used the divisive rhetoric that it is a “separation-of-church-and-state” issue that they do so. The current invocation of Thanksgiving Day is derived from the Christian (and earlier, Catholic) litergy and doctrines. However, not only these religions express the act of gratefulness, as many other cultures which preceded them by thousands of years have also done. It has become far too common that any holiday that does not commercialize as well (like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc.), nor provide such outstanding profit potential, gets silently passed by or abdicated altogether. (This may also be part and parcel to the big push by “animal-rights” campaign groups, to “wean” Americans away from consuming meats of any animal type.)

So, enjoy your Thanksgiving Day, while you still have that fresh-baked turkey available to you!

4 ) Flag Day – Almost NO ONE even knows of the existence of this particular day!

This was the day to celebrate the adoption of our national flag, the Stars and Stripes, as begun with the first Flag of the Thirteen Colonies, as envisioned by the Nation’s Founders and sewn by Betsy Ross. This became the flag of our national identity, and symbolic of our nation’s struggle for independence.

= Some national holidays that are being systematically changed drastically from their original intents: =

5 ) Christmas/Christmas Day – This is being overshadowed by other expressions such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Ramadan, and other cultural holidays, exclusive of American culture.

Because “Christmas” is viewed as “exclusivist” and too “Christian” for a nation that honors separation of church and state by the political powers (usually from the more-fascististic movements), it is being quietly discarded in favor of the other cultural expressions of similar holidays. Heavy emphasis is placed on more-loudly promoting the other holidays, because the political system continues the message that “Americans have no culture“. This is a favorite ploy of theirs to further denigrate and minimize the positive contributions of the United States of America, and anything even remotely reminiscent of old European culture.

6 ) Easter/Easter Sunday – Seems to mean something only for hyper-consumerism and commercialization anymore.

* * *

Though I have lost track of a few others myself,

I think this short list is enough to convey a sense of “wow” in that these have been steady pressures, acted upon by many of the so-called civil-rights and social-justice warriors.

If there are any that I may missed, and you feel the need to include them, I am open to other comments on this subject.

So Very Far away: Have We been Here Before?


From The last lines from “2525”:

Now It’s Been Ten Thousand Years,
Man has cried a Billion Tears,
Over What He never Knew,
Now Man’s Reign is Through,
But Through Eternal Light,
The Twinkling of Star Light,
From So Very far Away,
Maybe It’s Only Yesterday.

* * *

So, What did these gentlemen know, that which escapes most of us today?

Well, My search and RE-search keep turning up bits of “forbidden” knowledge everywhere.

How about this:

‘Moment 600 years ago that terror came to Mummies of the Amazon’ (here)

“Hands over her eyes and her face gripped with terror, the woman’s fear of death is all too obvious.

The remarkable mummy was found in a hidden burial vault in the Amazon. It is at least 600 years old and has survived thanks to the embalming skills of her tribe, the Chachapoyas or cloud warriors.

Eleven further mummies were recovered from the massive cave complex 82ft down. The vault – which was also used for worship – was chanced upon three months ago by a farmer working at the edge of northern Peru’s rain-forest. He tipped off scientists who uncovered ceramics, textiles and wall paintings.

The Chachapoyas were a tall, fair-haired, light-skinned race that some researchers believe may have come from Europe. Little is known about them except that they were one of the more advanced ancient civilizations in the area. Adept at fighting, they commanded a large kingdom from the year 800 to 1500 that stretched across the Andes.”

* * *

Or, how about this:

HUNDREDS of 3000-4000 year old blonde and red haired Caucasian mummies were found in China. Why is this fact kept hidden? (source)

* * *

In other words,

Let the race-baiters have their illusions. I will have a new view towards more of the historic truth. If God created all, then God created this world and everything in it for the liveliness of all. (#7 – of Proposed Dragon Code)

If we can not get our heads out of the timeless sands of ignorance, then we are doomed to repeat the miserable history of our impending destruction – and perhaps become a forgotten memery just like our ancient ancestors and their accomplishments! Our current establishment-approved flavor of “history” is complete garbage and was written to confuse and mislead us all. So, let the senseless race-wars and those who finance them beware! – WE, THE NEWLY-ENLIGHTENED PEOPLES SHALL ARISE AGAIN, AND RECLAIM OUR ANCESTORS’ FORMER GLORY! (#8 – of Proposed Dragon Code)

Just call me sick and tired of the whole political-correctness games being played upon us. We will never see peace as a reality, until we dethrone those who wrongfully lord over us, and those who are wholly unqualified to lead any one. (#10 – of Proposed Dragon Code)

So WHY is the world in such a decrepit shape today?

– Because we have forgotten our history, and we have forgotten to honor those of our past, and forgotten to honor our personal oaths to the Great God and/or Goddess of Nature (or whatever higher-purpose you ascribe to).
(#’s 1 – 51 of the current Proposed Dragon Code) [Also referred to as the Dragonic Code of Honor, or “Honor Code of the Dragons” – as proposed].

So,

We CAN fix this, if we are serious and committed towards positive change.

Let’s stop repeating a failed history model, of a failed societal model, by remembering the ancient lessons – by our ancient ancestors. To forget them, is to forget where we are actually headed now.
