Fake News Forced to Admit That Russia is Winning

What’s this about “Ukraine’s last stand?” How can that be? For weeks, Fake News had been trumpeting Russia’s disastrous campaign against the plucky Ukrainians — even calling it “Putin’s Vietnam.” Now, this sudden turn of events from Sulzberger’s Times:

“After weeks of shelling and bombings, the Russian siege of the critical Ukrainian port city of Mariupol has culminated in a last stand by a few thousand Ukrainian troops, holed up in a sprawling, smoldering steel plant that backs up to the sea. Russia had given the Ukrainian fighters in Mariupol until Sunday morning to lay down their weapons or be “eliminated.”  … Capturing Mariupol would be a major victory for Russia that could strengthen its push to command Ukraine’s east. (emphasis added)

Evidently, the “disinformation” put out by the Russian media these past 7 weeks was true after all. The big bad Rooskies have indeed been “kicking ass and taking names” all along — so much so, in fact, that even “the paper of record” is now compelled to acknowledge the reality. “Putin’s Vietnam” my ass!

While researching old archived issues of the New York Slimes from the World War II years, your original source historian here always noticed a similar pattern of spinning crushing defeat into stalemate or even victory for the ALL LIES– until circumstances rendered the lie no longer tenable. Always in justifiable preemptive self-defense, the Germans would easily roll through country after country after country. And always, the Times would hype up the heroic effectiveness of the Polish, or Norwegian, or Dutch, or Greek etc. “resistance,” and the UK-France “counterattacks.” Days later, when the Germans would occupy the Capital city, the truth of the rout would finally be reported.

It’s not clear what the motives for initially portraying a rout as a defeat are. Wishful thinking in the form of reporting? A bias toward believing the propaganda of the favored nation? A desire to prop up the illusion of a close match so that the western nations will be more apt to help the underdog? An attempt to penetrate the population of the enemy state with demoralizing news? A combination of all these factors?

Though we can’t define the motives with 100% certainty; the historical pattern of depicting the defeat of the preferred state as a close match or even victory is well established, as the rebutted Times’ WW 2 headlines below indicate:

The day-to-day reporting throughout all of World War followed that same pattern of optimistic deception — until, of course, the tide truly started to turn against Germany in 1943. When (not “if”) Mariupol is completely liberated, the end of Putin’s targeted military operation (we hesitate to call it a “war”) will be near. Then all of the idiot libtards can pull their stupid yellow & blue flags down (there are 5 such homes along the route that I often drive to get to the local stores) and maybe put those “Thank You Healthcare Heroes” signs back up in honor of the BA.2 “variant” currently making its way through the malleable minds of the overlapping kingdoms of Normiedom & Libtardia.

The string of “causes” never ends for these juvenile junkies.

Full List Of Heads Of State Who Attended World Economic Forum’s ‘Davos 2020’

As revealed by a 2020 attendee list anonymously given to Quartz, Davos has a way of separating even the global “elite” into strata. The hierarchy of attendees is enumerated in the World Economic Forum’s (“WEF’s”) databases. Participants are put into categories numbered from one to seven — an indication, of sorts, of how senior or perhaps important a delegate is to the business world.

full list of heads of state who attended world economic forum's 'davos 2020'

Nearly every person attending is assigned one of these “position levels.” Those listed as ones are labelled things like “Top Executive” or “Head of State.” Twos are labelled in positions like “Senior Executives” and “Deputy Head of State.” Central bankers are level three. Level four includes country officials in a sub-ministerial post. Local government officials are level five. People in honorary positions are level six. Level seven is for those classified as “Functional Staff.”

What was discussed at Davos 2020?  The theme of the 50th annual meeting of the Davos mob was titled Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World and included a ‘Special Address by Han Zheng, Vice-Premier of the People’s Republic of China’.

While the majority most likely enthusiastically agree, or are sufficiently self-serving not to care, not everyone who attends Davos’ annual meetings agrees with WEF’s agenda or, at least, not entirely.

President Donald Trump, for example, attended Davos in 2020 but, it seems, he flew in the face of the globalist party line. In a speech he gave, instead of espousing WEF’s environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) and climate change agenda, Trump focused on the success of his putting Americans first policy and the positive impact it was having on the US economy and American’s lives. You can watch his speech at Davos 2020 HERE.

This was confirmed in an interview the next day with CNBC, “Even the New York Times… acknowledges that the Davos elite are accepting that your policies are working and the US economy is the envy of the world.  … [yesterday] what the CEO’s are talking about … all they wanted to talk about, was the strength of the US economy. It’s the envy of the world. And I think if you have a strong economy, all these ancillary issues become easier to deal with. And I think even the Europeans, even the plutocrats of Davos, are now acknowledging that.,” CNBC’s Joe Kernen said.

According to the WEF “by 2025 they do not want us to take anything from nature, anything we consume will be laboratory generated,” Celeste Solum told David Icke in an interview discussing the Barcode of Life initiative. Although not appearing on WEF’s list published by Quartz, in January 2020 Solum attended remotely and was horrified to discover that the plans were “operational.”  Solum said, “this Covid situation is the first deployment of a construct, a new life form if you will. It is not a virus it is a nano synthetic biological.”

Filtering the list published by Quartz for “Head of State” and “Prime Minister” there were a total of 75 attendees from 54 countries: 49 categorised as Level 1; 16 as Level 2; 6 as Level 3; and, the remaining 4 as Level 4 to 7.

Some are past or former heads of state or prime ministers, for example, former UK prime ministers David Cameron and Tony Blair are included. And others, such as the third attendee listed as from the UK – Sir Edward Lister described as Chief Strategy Adviser to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom – is picked up by the filter as his job description contains the words “Prime Minister.”

It’s notable that all three of these UK attendees, so-called global “elites,” are no strangers to controversy:

Including these former and associated, attached below is the list of the 75 “Head of State” and “Prime Minister” attendees sorted by country.

If You “Stand with Ukraine,” You Stand with Leftist Scum

The fact that libtards and normies now “stand with Ukraine” was to be expected. Whatever cause-of-the-month that the authoritative reader in the TV tells them to believe in, the virtue-signalling simpletons will obediently support. Zelensky hero / Putin bad.

But to see so many FOX fans and self-proclaimed “conservatives” taking a similar position is particularly frustrating. For the benefit of any FOX conservatives in your circle of family, friends & contacts, we’ve put together a very simple-to-digest pictorial presentation. When they see what filthy Marxist-Globalist bedfellows they are making common cause with, they’ll hopefully reconsider their “stand” with the Deep State-owned gangsters misruling Ukraine.

Dr Vernon Coleman: Time Is Running Out For Those Who Care About Freedom

The manager of a favourite café told me yesterday that their electricity bill, currently £900 a month, will rise to £2,800 from next month.

That won’t be unusual. Energy bills everywhere [literally, all over the world] are going to triple. A litre of petrol or diesel will soon cost over £2. Charging an electric car is going to cost triple. Expect food bills to be double within the next six months. At least double.

dr vernon coleman time is running out for those who care about freedom

Thousands of cafes and small businesses are going to close next month. Local taxes, soaring energy bills, rising costs of materials and labour, and car park charges which are doubling everywhere, will devastate what is left of the High Street. Unemployment will rocket. (…)

In Italy an article by a well-respected journalist was removed from the internet.

The article reported that the American think tank known as the Rand Corporation planned the strategy behind the attack on Russia back in 2019. The journalist claimed that the aim was to `over-extend and unbalance’ Russia.

The media is doing everything they can to stir up hatred of the Russians and love for Ukraine. Ukrainian soldiers are said to be yelling `God save the Queen’ while firing UK made missiles at Russian tanks. The British royal family have actually taken a political stance in support of Ukraine…

‘Never trust a Russian,’ said my Uncle Jack when I was eight-years-old.

Life was much simpler in those days.

I wonder what my Uncle Jack would think of the bizarre and corrupt world we now inhabit.

I don’t trust the Russians. I wouldn’t lend Putin my second best lawn mower. And I wouldn’t give him a lift on a dark night but compared to the Schwabbies, he’s a girl guide.

But I don’t trust anyone in any government either.

I don’t trust anyone who works for any government. I don’t trust anyone who is being paid by governments (such as mainstream journalists).

We live in a world where nothing is as it seems to be. The UK Government imports tons of chopped up trees so that they can claim they’re making electricity without using fossil fuels. But the same Government bans log burners to stop householders keeping warm when the electricity and the gas are turned off.

[I’ve read countless similar stories coming from Canada and the European Union, so it is clearly part of the Cult’s agenda]

Madness!

In Ireland, the Government has apparently stated that ‘the State… shall delimit the right to private property, where it is necessary to ensure the common good’.

Remember: ‘You will own nothing and be happy` is the mantra of the Great Reset.

Sky News Australia: The Great Reset Is ‘One Of The Greatest Threats’ To Democracy And Freedom.

Excerpt from the video above:

Independent MP Craig Kelly says the great reset is “one of the greatest threats” facing our freedoms and our democracy.

“We have a group of global elites that have taken over all these UN bureaucracies, that at their core are Marxist and socialist,” he told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.

“We’ve got to call this out for what it is, and we’ve got to push back very very darn hard on it.”

According to Mr Kelly, we are seeing the “same tactics” used with the pandemic as with the “global warming scare”.

“It’s all about sensationalism, creating these grave threats sometime in the future, creating panic in society, hoping the people will actually surrender their freedoms, and hoping that weak politicians will surrender their nation’s sovereignty to these UN power-hungry bureaucrats.”

Also read: Ukraine Becomes the First Country to Implement the Great Reset.

Food supplies are running out but they want to make it illegal to grow your own vegetables or keep a few chickens.

Everything that is happening is happening on purpose.

You’d have to be as stupid or as prejudiced as a BBC employee in denial to think that things are happening by accident.

Politicians are now merely front men for billionaire conspirators who aren’t satisfied with their riches. They want everything: all the money and all the power.

We live in a world where everything is destined to get much, much worse. And remember: nothing happens by accident.

Is it, for example, an accident that education in the UK is so poor that half the nation under 30 can’t read, write or do simple sums?

Schools and even universities have created millions of idiots who will accept whatever garbage they are fed.

For those of us who care about freedom, I’m afraid that time is running out.

The only way we will win this war is to spread the truth as fast and as wide as we can.

Russia Publishes Documents That Show Ukraine Was Working On Biological Weapons Near Russian Border

With all of the disinformation coming out of Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion it is difficult to discern what is real and what is fake.

But today, ASB News, an organization that breaks news on Russia and its military, published documents Russia claims show biological testing in Ukraine near the Russian border.

Also read: US Embassy Website Just REMOVED ALL EVIDENCE of Ukrainian Bioweapons Labs.

One document shows a list of the microbes being tested at the lab.

At least one of the documents a RIA Novosti stamp on it — RIA Novosti is a Russian news site:

Russia’s Defense Ministry Claims US-Backed Chemical Weapons Labs Found In Ukraine Which Was “Financed By The US Defense Ministry”:

There are documents from the US Embassy that were posted online on the biological labs in Ukraine.

The documents were later deleted but they are still available on the WayBack Machine.

According to CannCon  and IAmthe3Percent.

The Politicians Calling For ‘Freedom’ Now Are The SAME ONES Who Took Yours Away Months Ago

In case you haven’t noticed, a line is being drawn in the sand: you either stand with Ukraine and unquestioningly parrot the establishment narrative — or you are an agent of the Kremlin. The war propaganda is palpable and we haven’t seen anything like this since the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

the politicians calling for ‘freedom’ now are the same ones who took yours away months ago

While the media and your leaders are demanding that you “take a side,” it is important to remember that it is entirely possible to stand against the Russian invasion in Ukraine as well as the folks who helped to instigate it.

There is no question that NATO policy over the last 8 years has pushed Vladimir Putin into a corner, creating a direct threat to the national security of Russia. And, as Chris Hedges points out, “Russia has every right to feel threatened, betrayed, and angry.”

However, he adds, “But to understand is not to condone. The invasion of Ukraine, under post-Nuremberg laws, is a criminal war of aggression.”

It is also important to point out that those standing with the Ukraine now, are largely responsible for the quagmire currently unfolding in the region. As we listen to political voices talk about standing up for “freedom and democracy” in Ukraine, their words ring hollow to those who have been paying attention.

For starters, Ukraine is not a democracy as democracies don’t take down three TV stations for being critical of the president. Democracies don’t kidnap and cage their political opposition, who happened to come in second in the election process. And, democracies don’t bomb innocent civilians within their own countries for not being loyal to the party.

Undoubtedly, the people of Ukraine desire freedom and democracy — but their leaders have made it clear that this is not their end game.

What’s more, those claiming to stand for freedom and democracy out here in the West, are not who they claim to be either. Just a few short weeks ago, they were carrying out incredible acts of tyranny against their own people.

“Today, as President Putin attempts to illegally and unjustifiably seize Ukraine’s territory, Canada continues to be inspired by Ukraine and its people, who remain strong, resilient, and determined as they defend their country’s sovereignty,” Canada’s Prime Minster Justin Trudeau said in a statement on Ukraine last week. “In these dark hours, Canada’s message to the people of Ukraine is this: You are not alone. We are standing with you. Our support for Ukraine, for democracy, and for human rights remains unwavering.”

Exactly how he said this through a straight face is anyone’s guess, as Trudeau has risen through the ranks of history’s tyrants rather quickly over the last two years.

Only weeks before claiming he stands for freedom and human rights, Trudeau began freezing the bank accounts of protesters who stood against tyrannical mandates. Citizens were beaten and arrested for protesting peacefully in front of the capitol. Not only did they go after the protesters, but the government went after the bank accounts of those who provided monetary support in the form of donations as well.

For practicing their free speech, Canadians were persecuted and driven into financial ruin by the government who claims to stand with the Ukraine. This was all carried out with zero due process and without any democratic input at all — completely voiding the statement that Trudeau “stands for democracy.”

When the American political class — who also claims to “stand for democracy in Ukraine” — watched as the Canadian government began financially persecuting individuals for their freedom of speech, they not only remained silent but facilitated it. This was one of the most tyrannical moves in recent Western history and instead of standing against it, the establishment actually supported it.

In fact, a poll by Trafalger Group for Convention of the States recently found that a super-majority of Democrats, 65%, actually thought Trudeau’s authoritarian move to arrest people and confiscate their life savings — for practicing their freedom of speech — was a good thing.

In a similar speech, like the one from Trudeau above, Biden talked out of the side of his mouth as well as he claimed “America stands up to bullies. We stand up for freedom. This is who we are.”

Again, these words ring hollow given the fact that only months before he said this, he was removing people’s freedom — forcing them to take a jjab or face financial ruin.

Instead of calling out the establishment for these unconstitutional and illegal mandates, ABC, CBS, NBC, WaPo, AP, MSNBC, and CNN, chose to support the unilateral decision to force Americans to undergo a medical procedure against their will and vehemently defended it — claiming those that opposed it were the problem.

It is no surprise that these were the same media who have been marching us into a conflict with Russia over Ukraine — only this time, instead of stupid lies about horse paste, their disinformation has potentially catastrophic consequences.

We cannot have such short memories. The same folks who lied to us for two years over covid are again manipulating us into a devastating conflict with Russia because they stand to reap massive profits from war.

Ukrainian PM Says Quiet Part Out Loud: ‘We Not Only Fight For Ukraine – We Fight For This New World Order’.

As Chris Hedges so accurately reminds us:

“Only the autocrats and politicians who dream of empire and global hegemony, of the god-like power that comes with wielding armies, warplanes, and fleets, along with the merchants of death, whose business floods countries with weapons, profit from war.

“The expansion of NATO into Eastern Europe has earned Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Analytic Services, Huntington Ingalls, Humana, BAE Systems, and L3Harris billions in profits. The stoking of conflict in Ukraine will earn them billions more.”

We must not let the purveyors of propaganda lead us into another Afghanistan or Iraq. We simply cannot afford it, and this time, the enemy is a far greater threat than an insurgency in caves.

Be skeptical about media coverage of Ukraine

If you have been monitoring the coverage of the conflict in Ukraine, it is amply clear that a narrative is being pushed.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is being compared to Winston Churchill during World War II; he is leading his people during perilous times to become an inspiring figure. He refused a safe passage offer from the U.S. with the quip: “I need ammunition, not a ride”. He streams videos from the deserted streets of Ukraine and posts photos with his cabinet. Photos of Zelenskyy surface in military gear on the battlefront. To sum it up, Zelensky is being portrayed as Churchill, Rambo and social media influencers all rolled into one. 

Not to be left behind, a former Miss Ukraine, and the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelensky, reportedly joined the army. There are teary moments of Ukrainian soldiers bidding farewell to their families and children in the streets waving at them as they depart for war. There were photos of Russian soldiers holding Ukrainian girls as hostages. We see harrowing footage of injured Ukrainian children, slain Ukrainian soldiers, and explosions. We see courage as a brave Ukrainian child stands up to a Russian soldier, almost ordering him to leave her country.

It is all so poignant and inspiring until you fact-check the images.

The photos of Zelensky in military gear were from February 11, 2021, and April 9, 2021.  The photo of the Russian soldier holding Ukrainian girls at gunpoint was a 2005 photo from the West Bank. Neither the first lady of Ukraine nor the former Miss Ukraine is joining the armed forces. The teary farewell of Ukrainian soldiers amidst the invasion was actually a photo of the happy homecoming moment of U.S. Marines. Ukrainian children sending off to the army for war with Russia was an old image from 2016. Then there is a video that shows a young Ukrainian girl standing up to a Russian soldier who was shot in 2012 in the West Bank. A video from Syria was falsely shared as a Russian attack on Ukraine. A heartbreaking photo of an injured child from the Syrian war was shared as the victim of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. A poignant moment from the movie was shared as scenes from battle-torn Ukraine.

Such instances are numerous and all show the Ukrainian side in good light which makes it clear who the creators are.

They prove the adage that truth is the first casualty of war. 

It is also interesting to note that Zelenskyy has been seen on deserted dark streets of Ukraine or in indoor locations but never in public places in Ukraine where the date can be verified. Now there is a possibility that he remains behind closed doors for security reasons. 

An amazing 91 percent of Ukrainians approve of Zelenskyy’s performance. This is good news for Zelenskyy who was struggling with just 28 percent of public approval after the pandemic. 

The videos keep flooding the zone and the media dutifully reports them. Yesterday, a moving video appears to show a captured Russian soldier breaking down in tears as he sips tea and Ukrainians call his mother to tell her he’s O.K.

Even news organizations such as BBC use mobile phone footage whose authenticity they cannot verify. They introduce it with a disclaimer but the question remains why to show it if it cannot be verified.

Let’s have a look at Zelenskyy and his tenure in office so far, before the war broke.

Zelenskyy won the presidential election in 2019 after much of his campaign was allegedly bankrolled by one of Ukraine’s richest — and most corrupt — oligarchs, Igor Kolomoisky.

Corruption remains rampant and deep-rooted in Ukraine. There are allegations that new anti-oligarch laws were used to restrict the activities of oligarchs who do not support Zelenskyy. Corruption charges aimed at Zelenskyy’s main rival, Petro Poroshenko, his predecessor as president, are regarded as politically motivated by observers. There has been an allegation of considerable corruption and cronyism.

During recent months there has been a surge in attempts by Zelenskyy to control the media. This included pressure on publication owners, demands for political talk shows, attempts to cancel the screening of a documentary film, and threats of criminal prosecution against media outlets and journalists. 

Over the years, neo-Nazism has earned the Ukrainian government’s implicit endorsement. The Ukrainian National Guard is already home to the Azov Battalion that has neo-Nazi leanings. The logo of the Azov Battalion comprising of two neo-Nazi emblems — the Wolfsangel and the Sonnenrad. The National Guard of Ukraine has shared a video on its Twitter account that shows Azov fighters greasing bullets with pig fat, ostensibly to be used against Muslim Chechens deployed to their country as Russia steps up its military assault on Ukraine.

Following Russia’s invasion, there have been reports of the Ukrainian government using citizens as human shields

Indian students described the increasingly violent, antagonistic, and racist behavior meted out to them by Ukrainian authorities at the borders. There have also been charges of racism.  African, Asian and Caribbean people, many of whom are students, have shared reports and footage of themselves being prevented from leaving the country owing to their race.

We must remember that those cheering the Ukrainian regime are still claiming that President Trump colluded with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to rig the 206 elections and that the protests on Jan. 6, 2020 that went overboard were an insurrection. They now baselessly blame Trump for this conflict because he is ‘weakening NATO’. The long-term goal is, was, and will always remain to prevent Trump from winning the White House in 2024.

Beyond the petty Democrat politics, we must obviously sympathize with regular Ukrainians. Their suffering is unfathomable. They have lost their loved ones, their homes, their places of work, source of income, and hope. They are living in fear. Families have been torn apart. Some will have to live as refugees in neighboring nations. They may suffer from considerable PTSD apart from physical impairments.

So what do we make of the Ukrainian regime and President Zelenskyy? Could the conflict have transformed him into a different man or is this all a charade?

Let the conflict end or recede, let those affected by the conflict be interviewed. Let historians and documentarians gather information from all sides. Let everything be judged dispassionately and objectively. Only then can we pass a verdict. The media and the public must restrain the urge to confer members of the Ukrainian regime with superlative epithets merely based on social media posts or poignant utterances from a former actor.

Global powers must be cautious while arming the Ukrainian without supervision. These arms could be misused or sold after the conflict is over and the millions may end up in personal accounts. Aid has to be sent and aid workers must make sure that the aid reaches the people directly and is not siphoned off by middlemen.

For every bit of information we receive from any of the media, including social media, we have to have a healthy amount of skepticism but an open mind while we hope for peace.

Perpetual Tyranny: Endless Wars Are The Enemy Of Freedom

Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes… known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” — James Madison (aka “America’s First Politician.”)

War is the enemy of freedom.

perpetual tyranny endless wars are the enemy of freedom

George Orwell’s 1984 is more relevant today than ever.

As long as America’s politicians continue to involve us in wars that bankrupt the nation, jeopardize our servicemen and women, increase the chances of terrorism and blowback domestically, and push the nation that much closer to eventual collapse, “we the people” will find ourselves in a perpetual state of tyranny.

It’s time for the U.S. government to stop policing the globe.

This latest crisis — America’s part in the showdown between Russia and the Ukraine — has conveniently followed on the heels of a long line of other crises, manufactured or otherwise, which have occurred like clockwork in order to keep Americans distracted, deluded, amused, and insulated from the government’s steady encroachments on our freedoms.

And so it continues in its Orwellian fashion.

Two years after COVID-19 shifted the world into a state of global authoritarianism, just as the people’s tolerance for heavy-handed mandates seems to have finally worn thin, we are being prepped for the next distraction and the next drain on our economy.

Yet policing the globe and waging endless wars abroad isn’t making America — or the rest of the world — any safer, it’s certainly not making America great again, and it’s undeniably digging the U.S. deeper into debt.

Indeed, even if we were to put an end to all of the government’s military meddling and bring all of the troops home today, it would take decades to pay down the price of these wars and get the government’s creditors off our backs.

War has become a huge money-making venture, and the U.S. government, with its vast military empire, is one of its best buyers and sellers.

What most Americans — brainwashed into believing that patriotism means supporting the war machine — fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe and everything to do with propping up a military industrial complex that continues to dominate, dictate and shape almost every aspect of our lives.

Consider: We are a military culture engaged in continuous warfare. We have been a nation at war for most of our existence. We are a nation that makes a living from killing through defense contracts, weapons manufacturing and endless wars.

We are also being fed a steady diet of violence through our entertainment, news and politics.

All of the military equipment featured in blockbuster movies is provided — at taxpayer expense — in exchange for carefully placed promotional spots.

Back when I was a boy growing up in the 1950s, almost every classic sci fi movie ended with the heroic American military saving the day, whether it was battle tanks in Invaders from Mars (1953) or military roadblocks in Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956).

What I didn’t know then as a schoolboy was the extent to which the Pentagon was paying to be cast as America’s savior. By the time my own kids were growing up, it was Jerry Bruckheimer’s blockbuster film Top Gun — created with Pentagon assistance and equipment — that boosted civic pride in the military.

Now it’s my grandkids’ turn to be awed and overwhelmed by child-focused military propaganda. Don’t even get me started on the war propaganda churned out by the toymakers. Even reality TV shows have gotten in on the gig, with the Pentagon’s entertainment office helping to sell war to the American public.

It’s estimated that U.S. military intelligence agencies (including the NSA) have influenced over 1,800 movies and TV shows.

And then there are the growing number of video games, a number of which are engineered by or created for the military, which have accustomed players to interactive war play through military simulations and first-person shooter scenarios.

This is how you acclimate a population to war.

This is how you cultivate loyalty to a war machine.

This is how, to borrow from the subtitle to the 1964 film Dr. Strangelove, you teach a nation to “stop worrying and love the bomb.”

As journalist David Sirota writes for Salon, “[C]ollusion between the military and Hollywood – including allowing Pentagon officials to line edit scripts — is once again on the rise, with new television programs and movies slated to celebrate the Navy SEALs…. major Hollywood directors remain more than happy to ideologically slant their films in precisely the pro-war, pro-militarist direction that the Pentagon demands in exchange for taxpayer-subsidized access to military hardware.”

Why is the Pentagon (and the CIA and the government at large) so focused on using Hollywood as a propaganda machine?

To those who profit from war, it is — as Sirota recognizes — “a ‘product’ to be sold via pop culture products that sanitize war and, in the process, boost recruitment numbers….At a time when more and more Americans are questioning the fundamental tenets of militarism (i.e., budget-busting defense expenditures, never-ending wars/occupations, etc.), military officials are desperate to turn the public opinion tide back in a pro-militarist direction — and they know pop culture is the most effective tool to achieve that goal.”

The media, eager to score higher ratings, has been equally complicit in making (real) war more palatable to the public by packaging it as TV friendly.

This is what professor Roger Stahl refers to as the representation of a “clean war”: a war “without victims, without bodies, and without suffering”:

“‘Dehumanize destruction’ by extracting all human imagery from target areas … The language used to describe the clean war is as antiseptic as the pictures. Bombings are ‘air strikes.’ A future bombsite is a ‘target of opportunity.’ Unarmed areas are ‘soft targets.’ Civilians are ‘collateral damage.’ Destruction is always ‘surgical.’ By and large, the clean war wiped the humanity of civilians from the screen … Create conditions by which war appears short, abstract, sanitized and even aesthetically beautiful. Minimize any sense of death: of soldiers or civilians.”

This is how you sell war to a populace that may have grown weary of endless wars: sanitize the war coverage of anything graphic or discomfiting (present a clean war), gloss over the actual numbers of soldiers and civilians killed (human cost), cast the business of killing humans in a more abstract, palatable fashion (such as a hunt), demonize one’s opponents, and make the weapons of war a source of wonder and delight.

“This obsession with weapons of war has a name: technofetishism,” explains Stahl. “Weapons appear to take on a magical aura. They become centerpieces in a cult of worship.”

“Apart from gazing at the majesty of these bombs, we were also invited to step inside these high-tech machines and take them for a spin,” said Stahl. “Or if we have the means, we can purchase one of the military vehicles on the consumer market. Not only are we invited to fantasize about being in the driver’s seat, we are routinely invited to peer through the crosshairs too. These repeated modes of imaging war cultivate new modes of perception, new relationships to the tools of state violence. In other words, we become accustomed to ‘seeing’ through the machines of war.”

In order to sell war, you have to feed the public’s appetite for entertainment.

Not satisfied with peddling its war propaganda through Hollywood, reality TV shows and embedded journalists whose reports came across as glorified promotional ads for the military, the Pentagon has also turned to sports to further advance its agenda, “tying the symbols of sports with the symbols of war.”

The military has been firmly entrenched in the nation’s sports spectacles ever since, having co-opted football, basketball, even NASCAR.

This is how you sustain the nation’s appetite for war.

No wonder entertainment violence is the hottest selling ticket at the box office. As professor Henry Giroux points out, “Popular culture not only trades in violence as entertainment, but also it delivers violence to a society addicted to a pleasure principle steeped in graphic and extreme images of human suffering, mayhem and torture.”

No wonder the government continues to whet the nation’s appetite for violence and war through paid propaganda programs (seeded throughout sports entertainment, Hollywood blockbusters and video games)—what Stahl refers to as “militainment“—that glorify the military and serve as recruiting tools for America’s expanding military empire.

No wonder Americans from a very young age are being groomed to enlist as foot soldiers—even virtual ones—in America’s Army (coincidentally, that’s also the name of a first person shooter video game produced by the military). Explorer Scouts, for example, are one of the most popular recruiting tools for the military and its civilian counterparts (law enforcement, Border Patrol, and the FBI).

No wonder the United States is the number one consumer, exporter and perpetrator of violence and violent weapons in the world. Seriously, America spends more money on war than the combined military budgets of China, Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, Italy and Brazil. America polices the globe, with 800 military bases and troops stationed in 160 countries. Moreover, the war hawks have turned the American homeland into a quasi-battlefield with military gear, weapons and tactics. In turn, domestic police forces have become roving extensions of the military — a standing army.

We are dealing with a sophisticated, far-reaching war machine that has woven itself into the very fabric of this nation.

Clearly, our national priorities are in desperate need of an overhaul.

Eventually, all military empires fall and fail by spreading themselves too thin and spending themselves to death.

It happened in Rome: at the height of its power, even the mighty Roman Empire could not stare down a collapsing economy and a burgeoning military. Prolonged periods of war and false economic prosperity largely led to its demise.

It’s happening again.

The American Empire — with its endless wars waged by U.S. military servicepeople who have been reduced to little more than guns for hire: outsourced, stretched too thin, and deployed to far-flung places to police the globe—is approaching a breaking point.

The government is destabilizing the economy, destroying the national infrastructure through neglect and a lack of resources, and turning taxpayer dollars into blood money with its endless wars, drone strikes and mounting death tolls.

This is exactly the scenario President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned against when he cautioned the citizenry not to let the profit-driven war machine endanger our liberties or democratic processes. Eisenhower, who served as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II, was alarmed by the rise of the profit-driven war machine that, in order to perpetuate itself, would have to keep waging war.

Yet as Eisenhower recognized, the consequences of allowing the military-industrial complex to wage war, exhaust our resources and dictate our national priorities are beyond grave:

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population.

“It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some 50 miles of concrete highway. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.”

We failed to heed Eisenhower’s warning.

The illicit merger of the armaments industry and the government that Eisenhower warned against has come to represent perhaps the greatest threat to the nation today.

What we have is a confluence of factors and influences that go beyond mere comparisons to Rome. It is a union of Orwell’s 1984 with its shadowy, totalitarian government — i.e., fascism, the union of government and corporate powers — and a total surveillance state with a military empire extended throughout the world.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, this is how tyranny rises and freedom falls.

The growth of and reliance on militarism as the solution for our problems both domestically and abroad bodes ill for the constitutional principles which form the basis of the American experiment in freedom.

As author Aldous Huxley warned: “Liberty cannot flourish in a country that is permanently on a war footing, or even a near-war footing. Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government.”

Canada Moves To Make Asset Freezing Under Emergencies Act Permanent & Their Justice Minister Says Trump Supporters Should Worry About Having Their Bank Accounts Frozen

Canada has moved to make the asset freezing part of its Emergencies Act, which was used to target supporters of the Freedom Convoy protests, a permanent fixture.

canada moves to make asset freezing under emergencies act permanent & their justice minister says trump supporters should worry about having their bank accounts frozen

Wow, who saw that one coming?

In order to stop what the Trudeau regime referred to as “illegal blockades,” the government threatened to freeze the bank accounts of demonstrators and anyone who donated money to them.

Under the Emergencies Act, bank are required to freeze accounts without a court order, while all crowdfunding platforms and payment providers are mandated to provide information to FINTRAC (Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada).

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that many of the measures imposed ‘temporarily’ to deal with the protesters (after they had been suitably demonized as violent extremists) will now become permanent.

“We used all the tools that we had prior to the invocation of the Emergencies Act and we determined we needed some additional tools,” Freeland announced

“Some of those tools we will be putting forward measures to put those tools permanently in place. The authorities of FINTRAC, I believe, do need to be expanded to cover crowdsourcing platforms and payment platforms,” she added.

Ronald Reagan has been proven right again.

“Nothing lasts longer than a temporary government program.”

Meanwhile, as we previously highlighted, such measures are likely to exclude protected classes (basically anyone who isn’t a native Canadian or white), with groups such as immigrants and refugees enjoying an exemption.

Canada’s Justice Minister Says Trump Supporters Should Worry About Having Their Bank Accounts Frozen

Canada’s Justice Minister David Lametti says Trump supporters who donated money to the Canadian Freedom Convoy should “be worried” about having their bank accounts frozen.

Lametti made the obscene comment during an interview with CTV after he compared someone financially supporting the truckers to funding a terrorist movement.

“You just compared people who may have donated to this to the same people who maybe are funding a terrorist,” the reporter stated. “I just want to be clear here, sir. A lot of folks say, ‘Look, I just don’t like your jjab mandates and I donated to this, now it’s illegal, should I be worried that the bank can freeze my account?’ What’s your answer to that?”

“Well, I think if you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who’s donating hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions of dollars to this kind of thing, they oughta be worried,” responded Lametti.

Earlier this week, the Trudeau regime warned that anyone who supported or donated to the Freedom Convoy protest could have their bank account frozen under an emergency powers law.

“This is about following the money. This is about stopping the financing of these illegal blockades,” Trudeau’s Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said during a press conference on Monday. “We are today serving notice if your truck is being used in these illegal blockades your corporate accounts will be frozen.”

Lametti also threatened the truckers, who are protesting against jjab mandates, with the loss of their licenses if they continued to participate in the demonstration.

The Canadian government’s demonization of the trucker protest as an extremist movement incited the GiveSendGo hack, which revealed the names of 90,000 people who donated to the Freedom Convoy.

This was then ruthlessly exploited by media outlets like the CBC and the Washington Post, which have spent the last few days identifying and harassing people on the leaked list who donated.

It sure looks like Donald Trump was right when he stated that “the fake news media, [is] the true enemy of the people”:

As we highlighted earlier, even far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar spoke out against the practice, calling it “unconscionable.”

Satanism Promoted Shamelessly In The Mainstream (And The Reality Of Manifestation)

This morning I shared an article discussing the latest drama/outrage regarding a mainstream musician promoting Satanic imagery. Every time I post/write about these types of issues – specifically, celebrities or musicians promoting this type of symbolism – there are two inevitable reactions:

1. Knee jerk responses which reject the idea that this imagery could be anything more than art, or, at worst, an attempt to be edgy and troll conservatives into expressing outrage. This mentality also assumes the images are aimed at increasing attention and thus album sales, attention, etc

2. Reactions from Christians, other religious types, and informed researchers who understand that the Predator Class is involved in various occult rituals and traditions which are not what they promote publicly. These folks understand that there is an agenda to promote and normalize these traditions which invoke the left-hand path, aka do what thou will as long as it suits you.

satanism promoted shamelessly in the mainstream (and the reality of manifestation) lil nas and satan

Obviously, I am generalizing a bit here because this is a very nuanced and complex topic that deserves much attention. Therein lies the problem – this topic is not suited for social media debates.

To truly understand this issue one most study the Mystery Religions, the Secret Societies that are obsessed with them, and the connections to those in positions of power. I understand that it’s easy to dismiss the reactions to these situations as “scared Christians” or “uptight square conservatives”.

In fact, I empathize with this viewpoint because I often notice these groups afraid of things they don’t understand, including indigenous traditions that predate Christianity and the Abrahamic religions. I clash with these groups just as often as I agree with them.

However, to dismiss this imagery, the purpose behind it, the history of these various occult teachings and the intention behind these “dark religions” – is the height of ignorance. Much like the attempts to dismiss the reality of child trafficking involving high level government officials, the dismissal of the “Satanic” agenda is equally ignorant.

(Note: I place Satanic in quotes because I do not believe this agenda can be rightly called Satanic. Luciferian is a more accurate label for *some* of these groups, but that’s a conversation for another day.)

With all that said, I believe it is important to acknowledge that there are a great number of musicians, celebrities, influencers, etc who use imagery and symbolism that has roots in these occult traditions.

For those who are unaware it might appear to be art or just a quirky artist seeking to create controversy. Yet, for those educated in this area this agenda is very real and increasingly obvious in the mainstream world.

You don’t need to believe in the Christian God or the Devil or Satan or Lucifer to understand that the people practicing these traditions DO in fact believe in them. And that’s what really matters.

The truth is that these traditions recognize the power of the human mind. They understand we each have the power to manifest our reality with our minds, our intentions, our words, symbols, and actions.

If one ignores this reality he/she will not actively make use of this power of manifestation. However, those who tap into this reality have the ability to manifest and shape the world around us.

Now imagine that one has access to television, radio, the internet, and the attention of the masses because of your position (politician, celebrity, etc). Using the power of the Mainstream media and various pieces of the Pyramid of Power, one could manipulate the masses into co-creating reality without being aware of the role they play.

This unconscious manifestation is one of the most dangerous powers of the Predator Class that rules the Pyramid of Power. This also emphasizes the importance of individual mindfulness and empowerment. We must liberate our hearts and minds from the world of propaganda surrounding ourselves so that we can shape and manifest our own destinies.

Remember this fact the next time you see an artist promoting this symbolism and imagery. Also, we should be open to possibility that many of these artists are victims themselves. It is highly likely that these celebrities are not in complete control of the movies, videos, and images they are involved with. They are likely being handled by someone else or a group of people who are much more aware of the agenda they are promoting.

(Note: Much of the controversy surrounding Lil Nas X’s new video is that his first single “Old Town Road” was extremely popular with and marketed to children. This brings up the inevitable discussion about parents’ role in deciding what their children consume.)

Ultimately, this struggle – this Conscious Resistance – is a spiritual battle. Again, one need not be a Christian to see the agenda at hand and to recognize that the Predator Class is waging a war on our souls and our very being. If we remain in control of our own minds and do the difficult work to heal our interpersonal traumas, we can ensure we are the one’s in control of our destiny.
