In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell


Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

Sublime Ravings of a Madman


         I have a friend who lives in Scotland, not far from Findhorn. He's an Englishman, and spent his formative years in London.  Like most of us, he has lived a colourful life.  In 1986, he squatted in the Libyan Embassy in central London after Libyan diplomats were expelled, dining on a storehouse of north African cuisine while he brushed up on Gaddafi's 'Green Book' (-which I still have).  In the late '80's, he and his fellow cohorts found a home in an abandoned Fire Station in Greenwich, and proceeded to host some of the most memorable ecstasy-induced rave parties of the era.  In the '90's, he helped put on the laser light shows at Wembley Stadium for such acts as Madonna and Black Sabbath, before falling victim to a terrible heroin addiction and having to flee to the Scottish highlands to 'clean out' cold-turkey and save his life.  My friend's name is Steve.
        For the past 15 years, Steve has done everything from selling hand-picked mushrooms from the highland forests to upscale restaurants, to sifting through rubbish tips and recycling depots for sellable items, just to make ends meet. These days, he hosts Syrian refugees at his own expense, even as ever-tightening austerity policies emanating from Westminster push him and his family further and further below the poverty line. Unwilling to tow the party line, Steve is a rebel at heart, and lives out his personal salvation through helping those nearest and dearest to him.
        This morning, I received a rare email from him, and would like to share it with the world.  For the most part, "the world" has written Steve off as a madman, but I'd like you to decide for yourself....

ISIS Is a Tool of Israel

 
      Have you ever wondered why ISIS never attacks Israel?  I mean, they're right on Israel's doorstep - bordering the country, in fact, in the Golan Heights region of Syria.  These guys are supposed to be "radical Islamic terrorists" who will kill anyone who stands in the way of constructing an Islamic State in the Middle East, right?  And they never so much as fire a few rounds of ammunition across the border into their supposed arch-nemesis "evil Jews"? And why do we keep hearing reports that arms shipments travel VIA Israel to ISIS in Syria?  Why does the mainstream media ignore these questions?
     There is an easy answer, of course - but it's politically incorrect, even "unthinkable":  ISIS is a tool of Israel.  Is it a coincidence that their initials I-S-I-S mirror those of the Israeli State Intelligence Services - I-S-I-S?  Coincidence, right? So how did ISIS (the terrorists) manage to pop up out of nowhere in 2014 to control half of Syria and Iraq?  Who is funding them? Where do they get their weapons? Where do the endless stream of fighters come from?  Who trains them? And why do NONE of them go after Israel?  Why does US Senator John McCain meet with its leaders? And why do these leaders APOLOGIZE to Israel every time they mistakenly fire upon an Israeli asset?  Serious researchers and truthseekers need to follow up on such questions.  The truth will disturb you.

Stephen Hawking warns humans could be ‘superseded’ by supercomputers

Stephen Hawking warns humans could be 
       ‘superseded’ by supercomputers

      Stephen Hawking has warned that humans face being superseded by computers if the race to develop artificial intelligence continues apace.

The renowned physicist and cosmologist issued the stark message at the Global Mobile Internet Conference in Beijing Thursday.

Speaking via video link, Hawking said: “I believe that the rise of powerful AI will either be the best thing, or the worst thing, to happen to humanity. I have to say now that we do not yet know which. But we should do all we can to ensure that its future development benefits us and our environment.

Trump Buries Pedogate Investigation While Members of His Inner Circle Get Arrested For Child Sex Trafficking

 
      Those hoping President Trump would go after the serial pedophile rings operating out of Washington DC and around the country are going to be sorely disappointed.  One of Trump's closest friends and confidants - former presidential campaign manager chair Tim Nolan - is facing numerous charges for child sex trafficking that occurred during the presidential campaign.  Nolan, of California, Kentucky, and prominent school board member of District 5, Campbell County, is now facing a number of federal offences for child sex trafficking.
     The court is hiding who his customers were, but there were many, as the child at the centre of the case is being described as subjected to "commercial sexual activity."  Nolan is 70 years old.  His preliminary hearing begins on May 5th.

      We need to encourage honesty above optimism. Once we can speak honestly, there is a foundation for optimism.
       Psychoanalysis teaches that one cause of depression is repressed anger.
       The rising tide of collective anger is visible in many places: road rage, violent street clashes between groups seething for a fight, the destruction of friendships for holding the "incorrect" ideological views, and so on.

Are We Really That Divided?

     If we don't challenge these poisonous polarizing binaries, they may well trigger the accidental suicide of our polity.
     If there is any statement about politics in America that qualifies as as a truism accepted by virtually everyone, left, right or independent, it's that America is a deeply divided nation. But is this really true?
     Like everyone else, I too accepted that the line between Hillary supporters and detractors, and Trump supporters and detractors, was about as "either/or" as real life gets.

Stasi on Steroids: Eliminating Political Enemies Using Christian Mafia in the USA

   
Disclaimer: This essay is NOT intended to bash Christianity per se, only draw attention to the use and misuse of Christian organizations by the Deep State for sinister political objectives.

      By now, we're all familiar with the Italian mafia's sinister involvement in politics, participating, for example, in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Ostensibly Catholic, members of this international organization pay lip service to the Pope while engaging in a wide range of illegal and nefarious activities. They are often the "hired hands" willing to do the dirty work of politicians wishing to eliminate competition  and pesky journalists trying to expose them.
     In the United States, however, a far more effective and sinister network of ostensible "Christians" have planted themselves in the body politic as agents of the Deep State, hired to perform the same function as the mafia: eliminate the competition. Acting under a variety of names, these organizations receive their marching orders from both the DHS (Department of Homeland Security), IHS (Society of Jesus, or Jesuits), and 'The Family'/'The Fellowship' in Washington. As agents-on-the-ground for the Deep State, members of these organizations are tasked with harassing political opponents until they "cease and desist" in their efforts to challenge the corrupt political establishment.  So totalitarian have their tactics become that we can rightly call them "Stasi on Steroids."

Prepare For War: Trump Asks All 100 U.S. Senators To Attend Rare White House Briefing On North Korea

     Is President Trump About to Trigger World War 3?

     With a U.S. Naval Fleet set to fully arrive off the North Korean coast this week and the rogue state’s leader Kim Jong Un reportedly continuing to expand his nuclear program and missile testing, President Donald Trump told United Nations Security Council ambassadors that the status quo must change.  The President has asked that new sanctions be placed on North Korea, something his predecessors attempted to implement with little success.
     But unlike his predecessors, Trump’s latest moves suggest he is prepared to commit U.S. forces to North Korea should the state fail to comply with demands to stifle their nuclear program, and according to a new report from Reuters, the President is doubling down on his efforts, hinting that he is indeed preparing military action.

     Here’s the body count in the latest geopolitical earthquake afflicting the West: The Socialist Party in France is dead. The traditional Right is comatose. What used to be the Extreme Left is alive, and still kicking.
     Yet what’s supposed to be the shock of the new is not exactly a shock. The more things veer towards change (we can believe in), the more they stay the same. Enter the new normal: the recycled “system” – as in Emmanuel Macron — versus “the people” — as in the National Front’s Marine Le Pen, battling for the French presidency on May 7.

Meet The Real Emmanuel Macron: Consummate Banker Puppet, Bizarre Elitist Creation

    The last thing I ever wanted to do was write about France’s likely next president, Emmanuel Macron, but here we are. This post was inspired by a very telling Financial Times article sent to me by a reader, but we’ll get to that in a bit.

     Most Americans paying attention to global affairs have some conception of his opponent, nationalist firebrand Marine Le Pen, but Macron is likely to be very much a black box. I hope today’s post changes that.

Ronald Bernard - Elite Banker Comes Clean on Corruption, Satanism, and Child Sacrifices

 
       In a gripping interview appearing on Dutch television several days ago, former globalist elite banker Ronald Bernard broke ranks with his billionaire class of financial king-pins to come clean on what he saw in the dark underworld of super-finance.  What he revealed shocked television viewers, but comes as little surprise to Truthseekers who have had their "eyes wide shut" for years.
       Bernard revealed that in the realm of high finance, there are TWO worlds:  one for public consumption, and one known only to the top 1% of the banking elite.  The public world is the one we're familiar with, which is all lies, illusion and propaganda; the REAL world, however - known only to the very top - is far more sinister than we would like to believe.  According to Bernard, there are only about 8500 connected people who rule the world and know what's really going on.  "Compartmentalization" prevents everyone else from getting too close to the truth - even those within the mega-banks and intelligence agencies.

Paul Craig Roberts Asks "If This Is Freedom And Democracy, What Is Tyranny?"

     “Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience… Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem… people are obedient, all these herdlike people.” — Howard Zinn

Ukraine, Korea, Syria, Iran... Falsifying History Is Uncle Sam's Way To War

   April 24, 2017

   Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the International Arctic Forum this week on the real and present dangers from falsifying history. He said such deliberate distortion of history erodes international law and order, creating chaos and leading to further conflict.
     The Russian leader deplored the use of history as an "ideological weapon" to demonize others, and he said that without proper understanding of history we are bound to repeat mistakes of the past.

     That also reminds one of the maxim Karl Marx once wrote: "History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce".

Countering "Conspiracy Theorists" - Same Tactics 50 Years On

 
      Many attribute the beginnings of our modern surreal era of war, propaganda, fake news and psychological operations to the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963.  The factual 'history' of the assassination was whitewashed in the Warren Commission Report, released in September, 1964. In the years which followed, skeptics and critics worked hard to dissect the Report and show its glaring inconsistencies, ommissions, and outright fabrications, calling into question the official narrative of the murder of the president.  The conspirators within government and their accomplices were now running scared, afraid of being exposed and causing a crisis in confidence. Something needed to be done to silence the critics before the truth got out.
     On April 1st, 1967, the CIA issued a memorandum entitled "Countering Criticism of the Warren Report". Despite being issued on April Fool's Day, it was no joke. The secret memo, addressed to the heads of the military and CIA, outlined ways the intelligence establishment should go about disparaging anyone challenging the official "lone gunman" narrative and discrediting alternative theories. The methods for discrediting "conspiracy theorists" outlined in that memo are still being used today.

False Flag Alert Now Active! U.S. Gov to Simulate Nuclear Blast Over the NYC and Across the Nation This Week

 
     From Beforeitsnews.com, April 22, 2017

     'Operation Gotham Shield’, which will conduct a simulation crisis by detonating a 10,000-ton nuclear bomb over the New York City/New Jersey area next week.  Agencies involved in the exercise, which is said to be a routine drill, have noted that it will simulate ‘a large scale terrorist attack’ – but some believe it may turn into an actual disaster.

     Will anything catastrophic happen during or after that window of time? Will North Korea really attack the U.S. mainland? Will someone else do so, and blame their overseas enemies? No one who knows the answers to these questions is willing to talk. For now, all we can do is watch, wait and listen.

Prisons Of Pleasure Or Pain: Huxley's 'Brave New World' Vs. Orwell's '1984'

                Definition of UTOPIA:
    1: an imaginary and indefinitely remote place
    2: a place of ideal perfection especially in laws,
        government, and social conditions
    3: an impractical scheme for social improvement

             
 Definition of DYSTOPIA:
1: an imaginary place where people lead dehumanized and often fearful lives
2: literature: anti-utopia
– Merriam-Webster.com

          Many Americans today would quite possibly consider Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” to be a utopia of sorts with its limitless drugs, guilt-free sex, perpetual entertainment and a genetically engineered society designed for maximum economic efficiency and social harmony. Conversely, most free people today would view Orwell’s “1984” as a dystopian nightmare, and shudder to contemplate the terrifying existence under the iron fist of “Big Brother”; the ubiquitous figurehead of a perfectly totalitarian government.

Those words came from the mouth of James Gilligan, psychiatrist and professor at New York University. The man he is speaking of is the president of the United States.

Gilligan’s comments were one of many from a group of psychiatrists who gathered at Yale’s School of Medicine on Thursday. The message presented was that Donald Trump is mentally unfit to be in the White House.

Will You Turn Away Family, Friends And Neighbors At Your Door When America’s Day Of Disaster Arrives?

 
     By Michael Snyder, at Economiccollapsblog.com, on April 19th, 2017


     How will you handle all of the people that will show up at your door when a major crisis strikes because they haven’t been making any preparations of their own?  Earlier today somebody asked me about this on Facebook, and I thought that it was a very good question, because thousands of my readers will be faced with this precise dilemma at some point.  When America’s day of disaster arrives, it is inevitable that most of us that are prepping will have family, friends and neighbors showing up at our door asking for help.  When that happens, what will you do?

     There are some people out there that are very honest about the fact that they do not plan to share what they have stored up with anyone, and that even close family members will be greeted with a shotgun if they show up unannounced.

“People say, ‘If the Congress were more representative of the people it would be better.’ I say Congress is too damn representative. It’s just as stupid as the people are, just as uneducated, just as dumb, just as selfish.” This dismissal of democracy, cited by historian H. W. Brands in “The General vs. the President: MacArthur and Truman at the Brink of Nuclear War,” is attributed to that great populist Secretary of State Dean Acheson.

        America has always had its divisions, and Americans have never really been a monolith. We’ve always been a nation of many nations. The culture of New England is different from the culture of the Deep South, which is different from the cultures in the West Coast or the Midwest. People living in the cities have different beliefs than people who live in the countryside. Within those areas, there are ethnic, linguistic, and religious enclaves. It’s always kind of been like that (probably to a lesser degree in the past), and somehow we’ve been able to find enough common ground to keep this country together for more than a century.

Apocalypse, or Universal Destiny?

     The mission of Universal Destiny is the noblest of human pursuits:  the exaltation of the dignity of every person in maximum service to humanity, that we may collectively reach our destiny as children of the universe by migrating to the stars and achieving full mastery over our evolution as a species.
     UD seeks to aid mankind's search in God's Universe for identity, for development and meaning, thereby achieving a higher standard of morality, greater happiness, and deeper wisdom and purpose.  Universal Destiny represents a new mythic narrative to replace the broken concensus reality that has led the world to endless war.  It is a secret opening through which the timeless creative energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation - an "imaginal landscaping" that seeks to break the false historical narratives that facilitate the maintenance of power by the controlling elite.  This new understanding of the world will smash the cult of secrecy which controls our destiny and produces so much needless suffering.

How Could Western Civilization Collapse?


     Western civilization is under assault from a hundred angles. Unwanted and illegal immi-grants with sharply different values and morality are flooding our society and threatening the secular humanist values that underpin the West. A Deep State apparatus has infested our governments and militaries and is waging war around the world. Surveillance is becoming ubiquitous as police powers are expanded. Propaganda and artificial intelligence / world simulators are manipulating public consciousness through the collection and processing of Big Data. Jobs are being lost to the developing world, even as robots continue to take over at home. And a heavily manipulated financial marketplace is about to implode.  These and other threats are challenging the very basis of Western civilization.  We need to be informed of these threats in order to challenge them before it is too late.

               What Comes Next?

      In a word: change. Very big change.


All that remains to be determined is the nature of the change and its precise timeline.

Of course the threat of major warfare, possibly even nuclear warfare, looms large these days, not least on and around the Korean peninsula. The United States and its allies are right now building up a very large military force,  and bruiting their plans to imminently "resolve" the North Korean "problem" via military means, though an objective observer strains to identify even one case of the allegedly war-like North Koreans invading another country, while the USSA has willy-nilly been destabilizing, invading and destroying one nation after another for the better part of two centuries now, directly or in league with proxies and mercenaries, beginning with the Native American peoples of North America, and then continuing on to menace the entire planet: the Philippines, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Chile, Cambodia, Iraq, Vietnam, Laos, Korea, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, the Ukraine, (what used to be) Yugoslavia, Yemen ..... It never ends, and now the USSA is on the verge of launching another major war in East Asia.

Buy Gold NOW!

   
      The global economy is grinding to a halt. Government, corporate and personal debt is exploding higher.  Trade is slowing, factories are laying off, and stores are closing.  Even the stock market - usually the last to show signs of stress - is beginning to sell off.  Worst of all, despite record profits, banks are under-capitalized and woefully unprepared for a cash-run on ATM's. The least little spark in international affairs could trigger the long-awaited panic that brings down the system.
     If YOU have money in the bank, now is the time to take it out.  If you have investments in the way of stocks, cash them in.  There are really only THREE asset classes that are going to survive (and most likely prosper) during an economic crisis:  cash, crypto-currencies (like Bitcoin), and precious metals (gold and silver).

The Boston Marathon Bombing After Four Years

   
      By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Globalresearch.ca, April 16, 2017

      Today, April 15, 2017, is the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, a hoax event performed by crisis actors and tell-tale bright red Hollywood blood. Sheila Casey has done a good job of exposing the hoax just by using the time line and photos of the event.

     A number of agencies run training programs in which amputees working as crisis actors have a prosthesis affixed to resemble a bone as a remaining piece of a leg or arm. Casey examines the Boston event by timeline. First the crisis actors are assembled. Then the prosthesis is attached. Then the blood appears.

The Return of Commercial Prison Labour

              By Anil Shah and Christoph Scherrer
              Globalresearch.ca, April 18, 2017


         Prisons are seldom mentioned under the rubric of labour market institutions such as temporary work contracts or collective bargaining agreements. Yet, prisons not only employ labour but also cast a shadow on the labour force in or out of work. The early labour movement considered the then prevalent use of prison labour for commercial purposes as unfair competition. By the 1930s, the U.S. labour movement was strong enough to have work for commercial purposes prohibited in prisons.
         In the decades following, the number of prisoners decreased to a historic minimum. But with cutbacks in the welfare state, the prison population exploded from about 200,000 in 1975 to 2,300,000 in 2013 (Scherrer and Shah, 2017: 37) and prison labour for commercial purposes became legal again. Today, about 15% of the inmates in federal and state prisons perform work for companies such as Boeing, Starbucks and Victoria’s Secret. Migrants detained for violating immigration laws are one of the fastest growing segments of prison labour. Under the Trump administration, their numbers are most likely to increase.

Is The Deep State Creating Another "Crash Of 1929"?

                     Regarding the Great Depression… we did it. 
                     We’re very sorry… We won’t do it again.
                                                       – Ben Bernanke

       Waiting too long to begin moving toward the neutral rate could
        risk a nasty surprise down the road—either too much inflation,
        financial instability, or both.
                                                         – Janet Yellen

     In his speech above, future Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke acknowledged that, by raising interest rates, the Fed triggered the stock market crash of 1929, which heralded in the Great Depression. Yet, in her speech above, Fed Chair Janet Yellen announced that “it makes sense” for the Fed to raise interest rates “a few times a year.” This is a concern, as economic conditions are similar to those in 1929, and a rise in interest rates may have the same effect as it did then.

Drain the Swamp? The Swamp Is Winning

 
    Just prior to the US presidential election in November, 2016, an old slogan re-entered political parlance:  drain the swamp.  Ronald Reagan had employed the metaphor back in 1983, calling for "drain[ing] the swamp" of bureaucracy in the federal government.  Decades earlier, a similar but harsher deployment of the metaphor was used by both Winfield R. Gaylord and Victor L. Berger, each of whom voiced the socialist desire to "drain" the "capitalist swamp".
     Trump's redeployment of the colourful imagery was carefully crafted to appeal to his base, who were fed up with the waste, crime and corruption emanating from Washington.  Trump promised that if elected, he would "drain the swamp" of Washington DC and restore the federal government to one OF, BY and FOR the people.  His inauguration speech on January 20th reiterated this core message.

Is the United States ALREADY Using Nuclear Weapons Around the World?

       
     Never mind the MOAB - the "mother of all bombs" - dropped last week in Afghanistan.  Yes, this 21,000 pound bomb which destroyed everything within a one-mile radius was supposed to "send a message" to potential enemies that the US means business, and is willing to cross the next major threshold in its war against human civilization by using tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield. But it looks like we are late to the party.
     Just three days after warning the world about the imminent use of nuclear weapons for warfare, it appears I was LATE in my warning by more than a year:  The United States has ALREADY been using tactical nuclear weapons and neuton bombs in at least three war theatres:  Ukraine, Yemen, and Syria.  We haven't heard about this in the West due to a media blackout - NO ONE wants to admit the ugly truth that we have already entered a new and sinister era of warfare.  Slowly but surely, however, we are learning what millions of people near the receiving end of these bomb blasts already know:  nuclear war is a reality.

Paul Craig Roberts Asks "Is That Armageddon Over The Horizon?"


Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, April 15, 2017

     The insouciance of the Western world is extraordinary.  It is not only Americans who permit themselves to be brainwashed by CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times and Washington Post, but also their counterparts in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan, who rely on the war propaganda machine that poses as a media.
     The Western “leaders,” that is, the puppets on the end of the strings pulled by the powerful private interest groups and the Deep State, are just as insouciant. Trump and his counterparts in the American Empire must be unaware that they are provoking war with Russia and China, or else they are psychopaths.

The Last Country America "Liberated" From An "Evil" Dictator Is Now Openly Trading Slaves

      It is widely known that the U.S.-led NATO intervention to topple Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 resulted in a power vacuum that has allowed terror groups like ISIS to gain a foothold in the country.
      Despite the destructive consequences of the 2011 invasion, the West is currently taking a similar trajectory with regard to Syria. Just as the Obama administration excoriated Gaddafi in 2011, highlighting his human rights abuses and insisting he must be removed from power to protect the Libyan people, the Trump administration is now pointing to the repressive policies of Bashar al-Assad in Syria and warning his regime will soon come to an end — all in the name of protecting Syrian civilians.
     But as the U.S. and its allies fail to produce legal grounds for their recent air strike - let alone provide concrete evidence to back up their claims Assad was responsible for a deadly chemical attack last week - more hazards of invading foreign countries and removing their heads of state are emerging.

Who's The 'Conspiracy Theorist' Now?


      Wars based on 'false flag' premises are nothing new.  The Spanish-American war of 1898 was begun after the false-flag sinking of the USS Maine in Havana harbor in 1898. The US justified its entrance into the First World War, despite widespread disapproval, after the false-flag sinking of the Lusitania in 1917.  Twenty-four years later, the US sold its entrance into the Second World War based on the attack on Pearl Harbor - an attack known by US intelligence several days in advance but allowed to happen.
       On August 2, 1964, the "Gulf of Tonkin incident" was used justify the US being drawn into the Vietnam War.  In 1980, US-backed fighters in Afghanistan provoked the Soviet Union to invade that country, drawing the US into another war by proxy.  Around the same time, the US justified its proxy war in Central America by claiming the Sandanistas in Nicaragua were involved in the drug trade. Only five years later, during the Iran-Contra affair, we learned the opposite:  it was the US transporting drugs through the region, using the profits to fund illegal wars and covert operations.  George Bush Sr. was the mastermind of these operations. His ally in the drug trade, Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, was ousted in a massive US military operation once Bush became president.

On Scandals and Scapegoats - The REAL Easter Message

Our prayers are always answered - even if that means that, sometimes, God says 'no' to our wishes or gives us what we truly need.  People often turn to God when their foundations are shaking, only to discover that it's God who's shaking them.  The conscious mind cannot always foresee what is for our highest good.  Faith involves a basic trust in the universe - that everything is for our highest good.
     Is this true?  Perhaps, perhaps not.  But when we choose to believe it, and act accordingly, life flows better.  You then don't feel like a victim of circumstance.  Your attitude stays stronger and more positive.  Difficulties are perceived as a chance to engage in 'spiritual weight lifting', a challenge to strengthen the spirit.  Problems are a gift, even if they are not appreciated at the time.  Pain and suffering is a way of shaking us up, of getting our attention.  But that doesn't make pain and suffering the desired path for self-improvement.  It is more like a last resort, a harsh message, when the gentler ones - your dreams and intuitions - have been ignored.  This is the message of an excellent and transformative novel, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, by Dan Millman.  As Millman writes, "It's not the way TO the peaceful warrior, it's the way OF the peaceful warrior.  The journey itself creates the warrior."

Cognitive Infiltration - The New Ministry of Truth

      In George Orwell's 1984, government control over people's perceptions of their world is all-encompassing and complete.  News and information is carefully managed to craft public apprehension of their world. Censorship is rife, and even history books are revised and edited to fit current narratives.  Orwell's depiction of perception manipulation was well ahead of its time, but unfortunately, we have entered a world that has far surpassed even his nightmarish scenario.
     2017 will go down in history as the year The Ministry of Truth became an overt reality in the West.  Up until now, Google algorithms were essentially neutral, and produced search results based purely on objective criteria of popularity and accessibility.  No one was "judging" the truth of content.  All this changed with the upset election of Donald Trump and the eruption of the Pizzagate scandal.  Faced with the existential threat to their existence, the vast network of criminally corrupt players that make up the Deep State pushed for taking the information war to the next level.

Are You Ready for the Mushroom Clouds?


     Get ready to see mushroom clouds 
                on the evening news.

     As if to not only foretell but psychologically prepare the world for what is to come, the United States detonated the largest non-nuclear bomb in its arsenal - the GBU-43/B "mother of all bombs" - on "useless eaters" in Afghanistan today. The blast destroyed everything within a one-mile radius in seconds, and the subsequent mushroom cloud looked eerily reminiscent of those made by above-ground nuclear tests in the 1950's.  Promoted by the military-inustrial-intelligence complex through a steady stream of "leaks" and images, the explosion elicited a steady stream of attention in the mainstream media for its "message-sending" imagery; little or no mention was made of those on the receiving end of the blast, who are considered disposable human beings.
     The timing is deliberate.  The US has been beating its war drums for months, provoking both Russia and China in a number of potential war theatres.  With a massive naval armada heading to North Korea this weekend, and Kim Jong Un vowing to stand up to American provocations by proceeding with a sixth nuclear test also this weekend, the world is on edge.  150,000 Chinese troops are amassed at the North Korean border, and Pyongyang residents are being told to leave the city ahead of the expected air strikes.
     For the first time since Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945, the world is about to see the use of nuclear weapons in war.  72 years of nuclear peace are about to come to an end.  Are you ready?

American Voters Betrayed Again: Flip-Flopping Trump Alienates His Base

 
     Leopards can, in fact, change their spots.  Just 24 hours after I wrote that Trump is a wolf in sheep's clothing, Trump did the seemingly impossible:  breaking FIVE campaign promises in a single day.  His supporters are furious.  The first major alienation of his base supporters came late last week with the bombing of Syria over obviously false-flag premises.  Trump has stated publicly for years that the United States should stop meddling in other nation's affairs and stop bombing Middle Eastern nations.  But yesterday's flip-flops take the betrayal one step further, proving beyond all doubt that Trump is not just being unduly influenced by neo-con Establishmentarians, but is indeed the ultimate Manchurian Candidate - a con-man, doing the bidding of the criminal Deep State-Wall Street-military-industrial-intelligence complex.

Seeking Shelter From the Coming Global Storm

 
  It's coming. The global chaos many of us have been expecting for years is finally upon us.

There's no need to appeal to "prophecies" of doom and gloom. A simple survey of news headlines around the globe is enough:  stock markets are crashing, North Korea is sabre-rattling, and Syria is a powderkeg. Each crisis is ready to explode, and military forces around the world are on high alert.  We can expect the first shots of World War III to begin over Easter weekend.
     This 'prediction' comes not from reading tea leaves or tarot cards.  It is a logical conclusion after seeing how all sides in the impending conflicts have backed themselves into corners.  There is no way to 'save face' at this juncture.  Each side is expecting the other to blink first, and no one will.
   
Given this imminent reality, we need to be prepared - morally, psychologically, emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually.  The following is a list of TEN THINGS people across the developed world need to be doing now to protect themselves and their families:

ISIS and Al Qaeda - Tools of US Foreign Policy


    The unquestioned narrative we find blazoned on the front pages of our newspapers and repeated ad naseum in mainstream television news channels is that the United States and its allies are in a war against Islamic fundamentalist terrorists in the Middle East and around the world.  But outside of mainstream media, which is controlled by a handful of multi-billionaires in league with Anglo-American/NATO/Bilderberg foriegn policy objectives, and thanks to alternative media, it is now common knowledge that the United States and its allies fund Al Qaeda and ISIS. The seeming contradiction is easy to reconcile once we challenge one fundamental unspoken assumption:  that the stated goals of US foreign policy are reflective of the hidden goals.  Nothing could be further from the truth.
     In the context of the war in Syria, the stated goal is this:  to defeat ISIS terrorists and get rid of an evil dictator (Assad) who is harming his own people.  The hidden goals are easily recognized for anyone willing to open their eyes and search deeper for the truth than the mainstream headlines:  to weaken and destroy a sovereign nation that stands in the way of Western corporate, banking, and oil & natural gas interests, and to fulfill a century-old Zionist policy of Eretz (Greater) Israel.  Creating an enemy in order to destroy it is a hard reality to wrap one's moral mind around, but that's exactly what is going on in the Middle East.  A closer look at the facts of the past 50 years will show that this divide-and-conquer strategy has been alive and well all along, and is only becoming more blatant.

Manchurian Candidate Trump - A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

     Putting aside for the moment the fact that nearly half of Americans either did not or could not vote at all in the last Presidential election, roughly half of those who DID vote voted for Donald Trump. Mainstream media was stumped, with most polls predicting a win by Hillary Clinton by 80-90% certainty.  The upset victory by Trump was then explained as an expression of the groundswell of "populism" aimed squarely at the "Establishment" in Washington which had destroyed the economy, exploded the debt, engaged in illegal wars, and quashed civil liberties.  Donald Trump ran on an "Outsider" platform, promising to reverse direction and fix all that, and people believed him.
     During the transition period and early in his presidency, immense forces aligned themselves to stop the 'Trump Train'.  Liberals, Democrats, mainstream media and the Deep State worked as if in concert to de-legitimize the incoming president, calling him "fascist", "racist", "unhinged", "uninformed" and doomed to failure.  Worst of all, he was painted as an "agent of Putin". Roadblocks to his success were put up at every turn, with many of his preferred cabinet members - like Michael Flynn - outed before a change in direction in Washington could even get started.

Is World War III Being Deliberately Planned and Executed to Cover Up Economic Collapse?


   We've been hearing it for at least two years throughout alternative media:  every asset class in the economy (the stock market, bonds, real estate, etc) has become a huge BUBBLE and is about to pop. The global economy is on the verge of imploding due to exponentially increasing debt and the failures of central banks to stimulate domestic economies enough to prevent the inevitable collapse of the system.
     It is being said of the United States just as it is being said of Japan, Europe, and even China.  Most of the rest of the world has already imploded and is suffering from massive unemployment and economic stagnation.  Governments are spending more than tax revenue, causing exploding debt loads.  Massive injections of cash into the system are failing to produce the desired effect of economic growth, leading instead to ballooning asset prices which put pressure on everyone except the top 1%.  The other 99% of humanity is slowly sinking into further and further debt along with governments, and bankruptcies are hitting record levels.
     Are governments and central banks next?  Is the "shit about to hit the fan"?  Are the artificially propped-up markets about to pop?  Is the "smart money" about to exit the system altogether, leaving vulnerable investors to hold the empty bag when trillions of dollars evaporate in a massive global run on financial markets?  Has the collapse already begun?

Who Will Blink First?

 
     Late afternoon (Moscow time), US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson touched down in Moscow for critical talks with his Russian counterparts.  Just hours prior, Russian President Putin set the tone for the meeting, repeating the claim that the recent gas attack in Syria is a "false flag" - a deliberately planned act of terror by the military-intelligence complex of the United States to justify direct military action against the Assad regime.  Putin revealed that Russian intelligence has uncovered more such plots in the works, designed to demonize the Assad regime and its allies in the eyes of the world to justify full-scale warfare.
     Meanwhile, American media is sticking to the unsubstantiated story that the gas attacks were perpetrated by Assad, and all debate has shifted not to whether Trump should step up the war campaign against Syria and the Russians, but rather when, and by how much.  And at the time of this writing (Tuesday afternoon, 3:30pm), US Defence Secretary Mattis is taking to the podium to lay out several ultimatums, basically telling the world that the US and its allies are willing to risk nuclear war with Russia in order to accomplish regime change in Syria.

The situation could hardly be more tense.  It is October, 1962 all over again.  Who will blink first?

Finding Hope in a Hopeless World

     The world is on a precipice.  With Russia and Iran openly declaring their own "red line" in Syria, and the US vowing to ignore it and step up their ground and air assaults against the Assad regime, the world is now closer to nuclear war than it has been since the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962.
     This game of brinkmanship, where one side is expected to blink first, is bound to end badly. With the US propaganda machine in overdrive, painting Putin and Russia as pure evil, and Donald Trump surrounded by war-mongering neocons determined to start World War III, we can expect the worst.
     Neither side looks prepared to blink.  Assad is asserting his right to rule, based on opinion polls and election results that place his favourability among native Syrians in the 90% range.  Russia and Iran are asserting their right to defend an ally, having been formally invited in by the legitimate government of Syria.  For its part, the United States and its allies are determined to rip Syria apart by covertly arming terrorist groups who hold no moral values.

Sleepwalking Toward World War III



           By Mike Adams, naturalnews.com, April 9, 2017

                 Sleepwalking toward World War III… 
                like clockwork, the next 25-year cycle of 
              mass human suffering and death begins NOW


America has become a zombie nation of hypnotized, socially-obedient conformists who are so disconnected from reality that when the bombs start falling, they won’t have any idea how they’ve been programmed to celebrate it all. Heavily dosed with medication, fluoride and heavy metals in vaccines, the American masses have become sleepwalking automatons… conformist consumers of hilariously fictional propaganda parading around as “real news” on CNN, which has now resorted to displaying staged photos of maimed children to invoke the necessary reactionary emotional support to demand WAR.

Russia, Iran Warn U.S. They Will "Respond With Force" If Syria "Red Lines" Crossed Again

 
             by Tyler Durden, zerohedge.com, Apr 9, 2017

     A statement issued on Sunday by a joint command centre consisting of forces of Russian, Iran and allied militia alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said that Friday's US strike on the Syrian air base crossed “red lines” and it would "respond with force" to any new aggression while increasing their level of support to their ally.  In the statement published by the group on media outlet Ilam al Harbi, the pro-Assad alliances says that “what America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well."

Proof: US Backed Plan for ISIS to Launch Chemical Weapon Attack on Syria, Then Blame It On Assad's Regime

        Reposted from globalresearch.ca, Original from                           truthnewsinternational.wordpress.com
     The ugly truth is beginning to emerge:  the recent sarin gas attack in Syria was NOT the work of the Assad regime, but rather the US-backed "rebel" fighters.  News is now emerging from within US intelligence circles that Russia's account of the origins of the gas attack is correct:  ISIS fighters had a storehouse of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun, and were preparing to use them as part of a covert operation (in a repeat of the August 2014 operation) to pin the blame on Assad and elicit a strong American response.  You can read the ex-CIA officer's account at:  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-08/former-cia-officer-intelligence-confirms-russian-account-syria
      Now, it is emerging that the UK's Daily Mail reportedly saw this coming back in 2013.  On January 29th of that year, they reported on stolen/leaked emails from a Pentagon defense contractor that showed the devious plan being worked out.  Three days later, the article mysteriously disappeared from Daily Mail archives.
     Given the rapid pace of events in recent days and our headlong march into nuclear conflict with Russia, it is time to give this matter a second look.  It is imperative to get the Truth out before it is too late.

Vimy Ridge 100 Years On: We've Learned Nothing


     Today (April 9th) marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge in France, a decisive battle that saw thousands of men lose their lives to capture a single square mile of land - "Hill 70".  More than 3,600 Canadians lost their lives, with another 7,000+ injured.  German losses were even more severe, bringing the casualty numbers over 10,000. Army veterans, politicians, students and tourists are gathered at the site this weekend to commemorate the battle and pay homage to those who sacrificed their lives.
     Canadian history textbooks are filled with references to the battle as a key defining moment in the forging of Canadian identity. The speeches being given today and in the days to come all speak of the "great sacrifices" made by the men who fought there, glorifying those sacrifices as having been necessary for the preservation of freedom and democracy.

Playing God, Becoming the Devil: Connecting Human Consciousness with A.I.


     Futurist billionaire and Tesla founder Elon Musk has recently announced an ambitious corporate venture to merge human consciousness with computers - literally. Working with advance-ments in both quantum computing and the ability to get human neurons to communicate electronically with silicon chips, Musk is optimistic that within a few years, his team of researchers and developers will bypass the clumsy "GUI" (graphic user interface) cybernetics of today, which rely on mice and keyboards, and integrate the human brain with computers directly.
     The stated promise is the advancement of human learning in the face of rapidly advancing artificial intelligence which, without the direct brain-computer interface, stands to overtake human intelligence within a decade.  A quick interaction with Apple's 'SIRI' already hints at this reality.  By merging man with machine, the argument goes, we stand a chance of keeping up with computers by having the entire Internet a mere "thought-stream" away.  But critics are beginning to ask:  What are the potential downsides of having a pioneering elite leap-frog into the technology while the lowly masses of humanity are left behind?  Who will control the merged man-machine cyberspace?  And could the merger lead to the nightmare scenario imagined twenty years ago in the movie series 'Terminator', where artificial intelligence actively engages all the components of the rapidly-emerging Internet-of-things into destroying humanity?

Another False Flag Terror Attack, Another Fabricated Reason For Regime Change in Syria


     In the early morning hours of April 7th, the United States launched cruise missile strikes against targets in Syria for what it said was retaliation for the sarin gas attack in Idlib province days earlier, allegedly committed by the Syrian government of Bashar al Assad.  Primarily directed against the Shayrat airfield in Homs province, the attacks reportedly caused 6 deaths and dozens of injuries.  President Trump ordered the attacks just three days after the apparent gas attack in the town of Khan Shaykhun in which as many as 72 people died, without any official report on the nature or origin of the attack, yet receiving widespread support across both parties in the Congress.
     Supporters of the action are heralding president Trump's boldness and decisiveness, despite his having run on a campaign of extricating the United States from foreign military adventures.  Detractors have decried the retributive attacks as presumptive and premature, as no international observers have confirmed the origins of the gas attack.  Still others have warned that such actions are dangerous as they bring the world one step closer to armed conflict between the United States and Russia and an escalation of tension that could lead to nuclear war.
     In this article, we will break down the facts of the matter, and show that once more, the United States is using false flag terror events to manipulate global opinion to achieve its geo-strategic military objectives.
                                The single best video to date proving this was a false flag attack is:

NGA: The Orwellian Big Brother Super-Agency That Coordinates the Deep State's Nefarious Activities

     Drug running. Arms dealing. Organ harvesting.  Sex trafficking. Spying. Assassinations. Covert operations.  At any given moment around the globe, thousands of highly illegal and immoral actions are conducted by elements of the US Deep State and its allies.  Together they constitute the greatest assault on freedom and democracy in the world, and lay to waste any claim the United States has to moral supremacy or to being a nation governed by rule of law.  But how are all these covert illegal activities conducted?  How do the players prevent themselves from getting caught?  Who is protecting them?

     Just as the NSA was snidingly known as the "No Such Agency" for decades before being admitted in the public sphere to even exist, it has become increasingly apparent in recent years that the NSA's sister organization, the NGA (National Geospatial Intelligence Agency), is the hidden force behind so much of the officially-sanctioned crime committed by Washington elite-allied Deep State criminal actors.
